JTC Jun 12 2019 at 12:08 am Au contraire, mon cheri… JTC Jun 12 2019 at 12:09 am Pretty words for such an ugly thing. interventor Jun 12 2019 at 12:08 am Skye, you got some ‘spaining to do. Now, bend over, while Sam applies a ping pong paddle accelerator. kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 12:08 am I can do anything better than you! No you can’t. Yes I can! No you can’t, Hillary. Henry Jun 12 2019 at 12:12 am Isn’t that, “Yes, WE can?” kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 12:30 am That would imply it’s about someone besides herself. Punta Gorda Jun 12 2019 at 10:15 am And in that regard, Hillary more closely resembles the Norwegian Blue. (Disposition only, she looks like shit) MAJ Arkay Jun 12 2019 at 12:42 pm Now that’s really insulting to the poor Norwegian Blue… WayneM Jun 12 2019 at 12:45 am Marxism is the philosophy of envy and hatred. Since the Dems went full-retard, it’s 100% Marxism, day in & out… They aren’t even being subtle about it. Anyone else catch Shapiro’s interview with Ted Cruz? One of the things Cruz points out is the few policy platforms being thrown around in the Dem Candidate Clown Parade are all insane nonsense. They’re setting up to fight the election on a single issue: Orange Man Bad… The Dems are planning a groundswell effort so every convict, every old-folks home, every homeless shelter and, yes, every graveyard will be pushed to vote for the Dem Candidate… whichever clown it happens to be… Cruz opined if the Dems succeeded, especially if they took a super-majority, the plan would be to make structural changes to prevent losing power ever again. On an unrelated note, after watching, I wondered what it would look like if Shapiro interviewed Justin Trudeau. After I stopped laughing, I felt like crying. Oh Canada… NotYetInACamp Jun 12 2019 at 2:32 am I have taken great pleasure since ORANGEMANBAD debuted in occasionally (to more) using the name ORANGEMANBAD in my conversations with Progressives, Democrats, Marxists, (fill in blank) etc in a completely normal way while not even acknowledging that I am saying something, maybe, odd, or different. Others listening are often highly amused. It sure takes the edge off for me. But I am usually easily amused. Embrace the joy. Embrace the humor. They, collectively, can’t handle Orange man bad. Old Codger Jun 12 2019 at 8:31 am <blockquote<"Cruz opined if the Dems succeeded … the plan would be to make structural changes to prevent losing power ever again."Thereby ensuring, either by revolution or via the “restructuring”, the end of the republic that the Founders gave us. Ah, what a wonderful life it will be in the Democratic People’s Republic of the United States of America; with liberty (for an exceedingly small group of elites) and justice for none. Makes me glad I’m old so I won’t be around for more than the early stages. I dispair, however for the lives of my youngest grandchildren (10 & 2) and my yet to be born great-grandchildren. WayneM Jun 12 2019 at 9:21 am Old Codger, it’s up to us well-past-forties to teach the up & coming generations how what they’re being taught in school is indoctrination, not education… I remember how my parents and their generation despaired about those of us coming up. Hopefully we’ll do a better job of teaching than they did. lol T Paul Jun 12 2019 at 1:23 am Get ready for an onslaught of Monty Python quotes! kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 1:42 am This is an EX-parrot! It’s dead, Jim! … “So you’re saying there’s still a chance.” WayneM Jun 12 2019 at 9:23 am No-one expects the Democratic Inquisition!! Halley Jun 12 2019 at 1:33 am Perhaps a freudian would say that their need to concoct fake “enemies” would arise (as libidinal compensation?) from their shameful refusal to do anything about real enemies (hello Soviet Union, Islamist terror) with whom their ultimate goal (the removal of the USA) is covertly aligned. The argument that they are not just ideological custardheads but are suffering from an actual mental illness (of which TDS is just the latest iteration) is quite convincing these days . Yes, it is. NotYetInACamp Jun 12 2019 at 2:33 am By any means necessary. We must not forget their methods. PaulS Jun 12 2019 at 6:48 am Yes, but what would a schadenfreudian say? 😉 Brent Dotson Jun 12 2019 at 12:09 pm Ode to Joy Bill G Jun 12 2019 at 6:04 am Solving the problems would take away their issues; they cannot do it. Wood Jun 12 2019 at 6:37 am Well that’s true for all politicians. This is one reason why we need term limits. Perhaps with only 4-6 years to make their mark, they might get something done. Then it’s thank you, buh-bye. eon Jun 12 2019 at 7:13 am “Tellarites do not argue for reasons, they simply argue.” -Ambassador Sarek. In my experience,progressives go out of their way to provoke arguments so they can attack people. The objective being to constantly prove their innate superiority. As one young woman put it on Facebook, “We act like we’re better than everybody else because we are”. Spider Robinson once observed that it was impossible to talk to a “liberal” for five minutes without said “liberal” launching into a diatribe about something or somebody that needed to be abolished, destroyed and/or just killed outright. And that was back in the early 1980s. Today, “I hate it! It must be destroyed!” is all post-modern progressives think, talk, or do anything about, 24/7/365 and pulling all-nighters on Leap Day every four years. As P.J. O’Rourke said of the Clintonistas in 1993, they think they can create Utopia if they just stay up long enough. This may explain their drug use, as well. (Even the drugs cannot explain their bad “reasoning” on every subject under the Sun, including the Sun itself; cf. “climate change”.) When you are trying to debate a progressive, you are not dealing wih a reasonable individual. You are dealing with a fanatic with a head full of dogmas, a gut full of hatred, and very little self-control. Plan your exit from the room accordingly. clear ether eon JTC Jun 12 2019 at 2:07 pm “Plan your exit…” Or theirs. Old Codger Jun 12 2019 at 8:38 am So now “Progressives have morphed into full-on Contrarians. Bereft of any useful ideas and any facility for leadership, they have simply become “Agin-ers”. with nothing even remotely positive to add to the national discourse, they’re simply “agin” anything the other side proposes. Very similar to the “Never Trump” (alleged) Republicans aren’t they? John D. Egbert Jun 12 2019 at 9:24 am Check out You Tube for Groucho Marx’s “I’m Against it.” From the 1932 movie Horse Feathers. If it isn’t already their anthem, it surely should be . . . JTC Jun 12 2019 at 2:47 pm Wait a minute though…being contrarian (which I proudly acknowledge being on the “about” page of the Old Dead Blog) is not the same as being simply contrary (which every leftist everywhere is as they oppose whatever is not them or theirs). The contrarian is a skeptic of the constant barrage of BS being fed all around us and forces a debate that disproves it and defeats the BS’er, while contrary leftists just hate and oppose anything and everything that is a threat to them and their vacuous beliefs, without the ability to offer logic and reason to support their opposition. Just like in the brilliant rhyme…not the modern version: Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With silver bells, and cockle shells, And pretty maids all in a row But the original that so perfectly describes left-think: Mistress Mary, Quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With Silver Bells, And Cockle Shells, Sing cuckolds all in a row. cb Jun 12 2019 at 9:13 am Something to ponder: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect The psychological phenomenon of illusory superiority. John Jun 12 2019 at 4:14 pm To me the tragic thing to observe here is that any given person can be supremely competent in one field and totally incompetent in almost anything else. Thus we have multi-billion dollar businesses like Google and Facebook run by those proclaimed to be geniuses who are total moral morons who dare to dictate _what_ information we may or may not see. It’s enough to make a grown man cry. Fronk! Jun 12 2019 at 9:24 am Self-awareness is a beautiful thing.

Did Hedley Lamaar miss anyone? JTC Jun 12 2019 at 2:11 pm Yes, the worst of the worst… Carpetbaggers. interventor Jun 12 2019 at 4:17 pm Except, scallywags, which are even worse. Betraying their own. JTC Jun 12 2019 at 11:28 pm Right, one of my favorite epithets. And always spoken as you wrote it although I guess it is properly “scalawag”. kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 12:26 pm This is why those supporting “women’s healthcare” must demand that ALL men receive unquestioned access to a qualified OB/GYN, no preconditions. Insist that they Accept The Science. ‘Most incoherent paragraph ever written’? Magazine’s ‘editor’s note’ explaining word choice in article about abortion sparks MAJOR eye rolls Editor’s Note: For brevity’s sake, we’re using the word “women” to describe people who get pregnant and “men” to describe those who impregnate them. But people of all genders can get pregnant and get people pregnant, and this guide is intended to be a useful resource for them as well. Swansonic Jun 12 2019 at 2:23 pm For brevity’s sake I shall refer to the editors as ‘Idiots’ or ‘Morons.’ Brad Jun 12 2019 at 2:11 pm The parallel between the Democrap Party and gang mentality is striking. Gangs, just like White Supremacists, Black Panthers, Nazis and many other hate groups, become gangs, more than any other of several reasons, because they need something to make them feel better about themselves. F or example, Bloods and Crips both arose out EXACTLY the same social conditions. It wasn’t enough for them to unite against Whites or Hispanics in general. They needed a self-identified group to BE AGAINST and claim superiority to. Democraps/Progressives are the same. Even when they don’t have anything to stand FOR, they simply MUST have any enemy to stand AGAINST. Brad Jun 12 2019 at 2:29 pm If Democraps/Progressives managed to take full control, they would rapidly start in attacking each other. There will NEVER be any true unity within the Democrap Party. If there were, with their overall higher numbers, they’d wipe the GOP out when it comes to any National power in government. Eventually, there’d be no more power for the states to wield than there is for cities or counties. Sadly, its just a matter of time before that all comes about, under a One World Government/Oligarchy. We’ll win occasional battles against the movement towards that, but we’re eventually going to lose the war. Meanwhile,we must delay it for as long as possible. kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 3:11 pm Rep Norma Torres, Dem, California, on the House floor 1:48PM ET, let’s see if it makes the news: Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose. Punta Gorda Jun 12 2019 at 4:03 pm Its simple. That is so the sex starved males do not have to take any responsibility should they ever get lucky. kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 4:11 pm They’re Congressmen in DC. Is she implicitly denying that Congresspeople can discreetly buy temporary affection, even her? cb Jun 12 2019 at 4:29 pm ”buy temporary affection” … and let you know who pay for it: https://www.change.org/p/congress-unseal-the-deals-over-400-sexual-harassment-lawsuits-hidden-from-the-public-by-congress Punta Gorda Jun 12 2019 at 5:03 pm Not surprised in the least. https://news.yahoo.com/news/ted-cruz-asks-aoc-to-work-with-him-on-making-birth-control-pills-available-over-the-counter-184104433.html kadaka Jun 12 2019 at 5:42 pm We have contraceptive implants that last for three years, are easily reversible by quick removal, and they typically stop the menstruation cycle so increased comfort with greatly reduced costs for feminine hygiene products and related medical problems. They’re very effective at preventing pregnancy, better than 99% in the first year. We should be offering those for free, just for the medical savings alone. Instead the best you’ll get from Dems is OTC “Plan B” and daily pills, because of the large “oops” factor that keeps Planned Parenthood profitable. That and they’re terrified of the powerful Kotex lobby. eon Jun 12 2019 at 6:49 pm The trouble with contraceptive implants is twofold. First, it requires the woman to take at least some responsibility, to the extent of exercising foresight. Second, it deprives “progressives” of the visceral thrill of seeing dead infants, thus reaffirming their godlike power of life and death over everyone else. With these two factors in play, I’m amazed they aren’t trying to ban contraceptive implants. After all, responsibility and lack of innocents’ blood being shed have always been two things progressives want to avoid at all costs. clear ether eon JTC Jun 12 2019 at 8:49 pm Threefold…there’s big money in them baby parts, and don’t let those ghouls tell you otherwise. cmblake6 Jun 12 2019 at 9:08 pm You MUST admit, all this “equine excrement” is going to cost them dearly. NotYetInACamp Jun 13 2019 at 1:04 am It is fascinating that I have put ideas into a self described Democrat Socialist’s head. She had rejected anything happening in any other nations as not her beeswax. Now she sees the populist uprising across Europe and yellow vest movement in France and elsewhere as the same as young people here who see how the banks (central centered) and politicians have screwed up the nation, and jobs, and fictionalization with no productivity and the loss of homes when crashes and job losses occurred, and the destruction of the vast long time diversity and culture of Europeans and compatible civilizations by hostile cultures (with some good individuals) being forced where they should not be,do not belong, and will not benefit themselves or anybody.
