Arrogance & Elitism, Communication, Progressives ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Sep 18 2019 at 12:07 am No guarantees of “on-time”, but as noted yesterday the Amtrak runs right behind your little Ivy Street clubhouse…and they’re already half in the socialism tank, so an easy transition, and plenty of room to stack the proles in the empty cars on most routes. nonncom Sep 18 2019 at 8:00 am Not to belabor the issue, or state the obvious, but she is a fucking moron….hard to believe even other democrats could vote her into a position of governance…. interventor Sep 18 2019 at 8:02 am She’s not very popular in her district. If the lazy voters actually show up next November, she’ll be a one shot wonder. PaulS Sep 18 2019 at 8:50 am It started out, hey cutie where are you from, then it turned into oh no what have we done… And we don’t even know if she has brains…. 😉 Pamela Sep 18 2019 at 3:13 pm I think she needs to donate to the cause… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6zX6-Rf4JY Roland Deschain Sep 18 2019 at 12:35 pm Let’s hope the R’s have enough brains to run a strong candidate against her. We shall see. Maybe they want her in there to make the dems look crazy, as if they need any help in that department. John Sep 18 2019 at 3:44 pm I’m afraid her district is so Blue the best we could hope for is a Democrat In Name Only. They used to be a common species but are now nearly extinct. JTC Sep 18 2019 at 11:49 am All the above is true…but are we talking about AOC or Hitler? Homeless/unemployed nobody. Spawn of lower middle-class immigrants. Inflated opinion of intelligence and influence. Speaking to the hordes of disaffected and angry wastrels. Surrounded by those whose true goals would be served. No compunctions or conscience about murdering any and all who stand in the way, and using that to gain further influence among those handlers. An empty vessel to be filled with their true agenda. The parallels are astounding, and she scares the fuck out of me. Major Matt Mason Sep 18 2019 at 12:23 pm Guys? Gas station. Heels. ‘Nuff said. Too Tall Sep 18 2019 at 12:11 am Fascists, Nazis, Socialists, Progressives, Communists, Marxists, Liberals, Democrats, just different names for the same Progtard DildoCrats. The Founding Fathers believed that the State existed (with limited government, and the consent of the governed) to serve the individual. The collectivist idiots believe the individual exists to serve the State. You can vote your way into socialism, but you have to shoot your way out. Tagg Sep 18 2019 at 6:29 am “You can vote your way into socialism, but you have to shoot your way out.” Which is why they want to take our guns. nonncom Sep 18 2019 at 8:02 am Amen, brother….and remember, when master beto shows up for your guns, only give him the bullets…. Kafiroon Sep 18 2019 at 2:00 pm And with boxcars, thus the saying: “Run a gun or Ride a rail car.” RHT447 Sep 18 2019 at 12:19 am I was stationed in (the former) West Germany. I have walked the grounds of Dachau. Come on over. I’ll wait. interventor Sep 18 2019 at 12:21 am As a civilian, been there done that! GWB Sep 18 2019 at 6:59 am Buchenwald for me. Major Matt Mason Sep 18 2019 at 12:24 pm My ancestors’ ghosts haunt both places. Never again. Pamela Sep 18 2019 at 3:13 pm Same here. Kafiroon Sep 18 2019 at 2:05 pm Yep. Bright sunny day, long depressing hours. I look at the many photographs I took every so often as a reminder. It is a reminder that a country will destroy itself over ideas that some so-called “leaders/elites” come up with. kadaka Sep 18 2019 at 1:11 am This might be a reason why Democrats from Guv Newsom to Harris to Buttigieg to Sanders are all ardent supporters of high speed passenger rail service. It’s not always about the campaign contribution “kickbacks” from the unions. NotYetInACamp Sep 18 2019 at 2:02 am No wonder Soros is on their side. George helped fill the trains to the camps for the German SS during the Second World War. George said on national TV, back when TV was TV, that hsi work then was the most exciting time of his life. That DNC Headquarters is now a center in the USA for recreating the exciting times George Soros experienced and loved. AOC is one of the deranged ones supporting those efforts, MasterDiver Sep 18 2019 at 7:33 am I still can’t understand how the Mossad hasn’t left his throat-slitted corpse hanging from a convenient lamp-post by his heels. Zar Belk! John Sep 18 2019 at 3:51 pm Probably because the backlash against Soros is even greater than Soros’ direct influence. Halley Sep 18 2019 at 2:04 am In days of yore when I thought it worthwhile to engage “progressives” in heated debate (days long gone), each time I demonstrated their total alignment with communist ideals I’d be met with such white hot rage, I was glad they weren’t in possession of AR-15s to counter my argument with. Rage, not that I was uncivil or wrong, but rage that they’d been exposed. It’s the one thing, I’ve learned, that “progressives” loathe and fear above all else – being exposed for what they really are. John Sep 18 2019 at 4:01 pm Which also explains their self-loathing. Human nature is a perverse thing, which is why the Left so vehemently denies it and continues to think Socialism, no matter the form, can work. The wisdom of the Founders, on the other hand, fully recognized the Nature of Human Nature and forged our Constitution accordingly. They weren’t perfect of course, witness the mistaken belief that the Vice President should be the runner-up in a Presidential election. But our neglect of the nature of the Political Animal has led to things like feces in the streets. Bill G Sep 18 2019 at 3:49 am There’s a reason that real history is not taught under progressive leadership; the peasants are not to be told where they’re being led. William Henry Sep 18 2019 at 6:32 am If only old chuckie schumer’s family had stayed in Germany for that ( special ) train ride we would have one less socialist/communist politician. Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Sep 18 2019 at 6:43 am “He made the trains run on time”. Wasn’t that Mussolini ‘s Fascist schtick? John D. Egbert Sep 18 2019 at 12:08 pm True dat. Also, it was Mayor “King” Richard Daley the First who kept Chicago’s streets paved and the trash picked up. Badger Sep 18 2019 at 6:57 am Important to remember (and keep reminding youngs ones if you can) of what Solzhenitsyn cautioned. If, every night a state agent kissed his family good-bye leaving for ‘work’, but didn’t know if someone with a gun or club or knife would be waiting for them instead of complying like sheep, the system would’ve ground to a halt. As he said, they didn’t. And they deserved what happened afterward. My work during the Cold War took me through the DDR (East Germany) as well as East Berlin. You won’t like it folks – the trains actually don’t run on time, the track is poorly maintained – and the people are resigned to misery knowing the old lady down the road may turn them in for something. GWB Sep 18 2019 at 7:04 am One nit: No more boxcars. It’s all intermodal container shipping nowadays. Just sayin’. MasterDiver Sep 18 2019 at 7:36 am Oh, I still see lots of boxcars going by at the RR crossings. Zar Belk! John Sep 18 2019 at 4:06 pm The containers are superior, if only because they can also be transported by truck and make cheap mass coffins. Halley Sep 18 2019 at 7:40 am You gotta give ’em credit for one thing, though. They brilliantly transformed “To each according to his needs, from each according to his ability” into: the purpose of The State is “helping people”. And the whole world is still falling for the “helping people” hoax. cb Sep 18 2019 at 7:53 am There are no ‘FEMA camps’… trenches are so much easier. Old Codger Sep 18 2019 at 1:09 pm There are no “FEMA camps”… trenches are so much easier. Y’got that shite right! Plus they don’t require maintenance or personnel to man them nor do the people consigned to them need food, clothing or shelter. One thing the old Soviet Union had kinda sorta right was that in their constitution, the Marxist slogan was “From each according to his ability, to each according to his work.” It would appear that welfare was not an issue. Pamela Sep 18 2019 at 3:19 pm Franklin Horton writes about a FEMA Camp after a terrorist attack here in CONUS. I like his Mad Mick the best. Precision270 Sep 18 2019 at 8:01 am The social/commi/progtards want you to think they are Robin Hood, stealing from the kleptocrats and giving to the poor. What they really are is the equivalent of sexual predators who rape a well to do person ( with herpes/aids) and share the contagion with incels; while loudly proclaiming how great they are by bringing sex to the sexless. interventor Sep 18 2019 at 8:07 am And, those cars, were lawn mowers with a shell of a body. PaulS Sep 18 2019 at 9:07 am YouTube: Seattle is Dying I’m not posting a link, but I watched this yesterday and even though I knew what I was going to see, it was worse than I thought in so many ways. The ones claiming to be “helping” are in fact causing it all to get worse. I escaped that side of the State, thank God, but if the overlords have their way, everywhere will be a $hithole they are claiming to be “fixing”! Maybe it depends on the meaning of “fix”, which must be a bit off from conventional. Bill G Sep 18 2019 at 1:13 pm Just remember what is done when a pet is “fixed”. Old Codger Sep 18 2019 at 1:17 pm sic semper cum Democratae WayneM Sep 18 2019 at 10:54 am AOC isn’t as moronic as she pretends but she is a product of the socialist indoctrination endemic to public education & what passes for post-secondary education nowadays. Old Codger Sep 18 2019 at 1:20 pm AOC isn’t as moronic as she pretends She could hardly be and still be able to dress herself. DMO Sep 18 2019 at 1:03 pm “So SMART!” Not to mention, So Brave! John Sep 18 2019 at 4:14 pm Or as Ben Shapiro likes to say, “So Fresh! So Face!” kadaka Sep 18 2019 at 4:59 pm EXCLUSIVE: Here’s The Document The White House, Barr Are Using To Push Gun Control On Republicans … “Consistent with the Manchin-Toomey draft legislation, a background-check requirement would be extended to all advertised commercial sales, including sales at gun shows,” the handout reads. “Background checks would be conducted either through a [Federal Firearm Licensee] or through a newly-created class of licensed transfer agents.” If you are an unlicensed dealer selling commercially, as in you advertised a gun for sale, need background check. If you don’t want a 4473 you can get two forms, bill of sale with identifying info that goes to the seller and another with serial # verifying the check was successful. FFL or transfer agent doesn’t retain the forms unless you want them to. No advertising, no background check needed, private sells between friends and family still exempted. Seems reasonable, with a nod towards the “gun show loophole” for the slavering hordes. If you’re advertising to sell to strangers for cash, might as well CYA with paperwork showing the government didn’t think the buyer was a prohibited person. JTC Sep 18 2019 at 8:44 pm Fuck that and all schemes to take away the historical exemption on regulation of private transactions… Defend the National Public Armory (NPA)! It is the last frontier of freedom from defacto registration and confiscation, and that’s the ONLY reason the grabbers want to close that “loophole” (aka the SPECIFICALLY ENUMERATED AND SETTLED RIGHT to conduct private sales outside of their purview…gun sellers who buy and sell specifically for profit are already illegal under current ATF regs. No law-abiding person wants to sell a firearm to someone with evil intent and it hardly ever happens because evildoers can get all the weapons they want directly or indirectly from dumbasses that don’t lock their shit up. A simple signed receipt with descriptions of the merchandise and the parties suffices to prove due care and diligence and stays right there in your possession in the safe where the merchandise used to be. I am convinced that properly intelligent and skeptical 2A defenders including the NRA understand all of this and that is why they bent DT’s ear and why he withdrew his prior verbal support of so-called “universal background checks”. Maybe that’s naive but that trust is what has gotten us this far and it’s all we have. It’s up to US to be sure they maintain the courage of their and OUR convictions. Yes this “seems reasonable” which is the aim to attain backdoor registration and this approach has been largely successful in gaining lip service support even from gunnies and Constitutionalists who know better than to trust any diminished rights that has not one damn thing to do with addressing crime and murderous rampages. Don’t be sucked in. kadaka Sep 18 2019 at 10:41 pm The news keeps saying how they were such a nice person, nobody noticed anything until the bodies were found. Banners are trying to go after manufacturers again, zoning dealers straight out of towns. I couldn’t financially withstand even one lawsuit over something that changed hands twice since the sale, and they might do that just to break me. Going to a public location to hand a gun over to a stranger for money with someone behind the counter for a witness, which they frown on at McDonalds, and leaving with paperwork that proves I did due diligence by having the government sign off on it, doesn’t sound too bad. And while I can do that now anyway, this proposal has a no-4473 option so the feds don’t have the transaction records. If you want to opt out and preserve the privacy and secrecy of the National Public Armory, don’t advertise. Sell by word of mouth, quietly asking friends and associates if they know anyone interested. It’s that simple. JTC Sep 19 2019 at 12:04 am All irrelevant to solving a non-existent problem. Private sales have been exempt from regulation and unlicensed dealers buying and selling with the sole intent to profit has been illegal since ATF came into being, and there are virtually no instances where legitimate private buyers and sellers have figured into any gun-related crime at all, let alone mass shootings, nor has there been any issue with liability that cannot be addressed with receipts, like every other buy/sell transaction. But none of that matters to antis because none of that plays into the agenda they serve and the problem they really want to solve; they want control and a trail to track down you and your guns to make them vulnerable to registration and confiscation, and if you believe there will be no traceable records then you probably also believe that NICS records are destroyed and untraceable also. That is incredibly naive. Most private sales are not advertised because there is no need to as there is more demand than supply, but what is word of mouth but a form of advertising, and why would you need to sneak around to do something entire legitimate and legal, making it into something dark and surreptitious when it is not? Fighting the loss of this right is a matter of principle and awareness of the very slippery slope it would be a big step onto. There is absolutely no justification for it. James F Gemind Sep 18 2019 at 6:19 pm Every time I see that expression, I think ‘Mommy, scary lady is scaring me!’ And I’m fifty eight years old! 😆 kadaka Sep 18 2019 at 8:19 pm Stupidity check, do you believe this? Sen. Chuck Schumer says he doesn’t know any Democrats who back Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation scheme Maybe the Schumers and the Bidens can get adjoining suites at the assisted living community. Sure seems like a reason the Dems have gone batshit crazy trying to keep Trump from winning in 2020 is the majority of their “top leadership” will have blatantly undeniable mental deficits within three years or so. Who will lead the party then, AOC and Newsom? PaulS Sep 19 2019 at 7:42 am You spelled Schemers wrong. 😉 Simple question when Beto’s minions show up and ask for your weapons:”Would you like the ammunition too?” “Why yes”, they reply. Okey Dokey then… 🙂 Doggo Sep 19 2019 at 11:11 pm Has he never seen himself in a mirror? Hard to believe.
