Rush May Have Something Here

Back when I was in junior high school I took band class and the school scheduled us for a concert.
They sent out fliers and the gym was packed with families waiting to hear their little darlings play their instruments and take pictures.
But, before we were allowed to play the PTA decided to have a meeting before and elect new officers...which would have been alright except the fliers sent out said nothing about a PTA meeting before hand.
If they wanted community input they got plenty of it and it wasn't good.
They believed they could hold those families as a captive audience and they would endure an hour or so of dry PTA business.
They were wrong.
Rush Limbaugh's observation reminded me of incident.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: GUN, GAYS, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGENDAS WILL BE 'THE DEATH' OF NFL
On his Friday show, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh reacted to the previous evening’s monologue from CBS announcer James Brown during the pregame show of the Pittsburgh Steelers-Baltimore Ravens football game.
In that monologue, Brown offered a number of suggestions for his viewing audience that would somehow stymy the spread of domestic violence. However, Limbaugh decried Brown using his CBS platform for such monologue, arguing that wasn’t the time nor the place for such a lecture.
Then he went on to say that combined with other hot-button issues surrounding the NFL, including the 2012 murder-suicide of Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend, the name of the Washington Redskins and the entry of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team would be the end of the NFL.
“Sorry, this is not why I watch football,” Limbaugh said. “This is going to be the death of this sport. It is no longer an escape. It is no longer about great athletes. It is no longer about amazing athletic achievement and drama. It’s now become about guns and gays and domestic violence.~snip~
He's got a point I mean maybe I missed it but I don't recall hearing or reading about anyone saying that they hope Bob Costas gives us what for on gun violence or raving about ESPN and their coverage of Micheal Sam.
I've been a fan of the NFL long before the pregame and half time portions of the game became another outlet of progressive/leftist propaganda. It's not like there isn't tons of other venues out there ready to expose the leagues short comings or how all football fans are racist,violent,gun toting homophobes.
But to become a captive audience to being slurred just because I want to watch a game on TV to entertain myself for a few hours is a bit much.
We can either push back against it or turn it off and at this point I don't think it makes much difference to me either way.

Little More on Media Manipulation


So, while everyone remembers what happened on 9/11 thirteen years ago one of the things that was ignored by the corrupt mainstream media today was any mention of who it was that attacked the towers and what their ideology was.

I was watching ABC evening news and not word was uttered about Islam, Muslims or anything that might intimate Islamic terrorism. As if the perpetrators were a bunch of guys who destroyed all those lives on a lark.

It's nice to know that our lick spittle media is keeping Islamic terrorists safe from the rest of the world.

So again it's up to  ordinary citizens and the alternative media to remind people of not only what happened but by whom cause if you're counting on the alphabet channels to do it then the truth will be lost,

Bill Maher and Flying Pigs


Apparently I can't see the flying pigs because it's pretty cloudy here today
I think it's fairly obvious that Bill Maher is miles away from having a religious epiphany but he definitely draws the line between Christianity and Islam that most liberals can't see through their rainbow colored glasses.

The Ray Rice Media Distraction

Like everyone else I've been keeping an eye on the Ray Rice beating his fiance/wife thing because the media keeps shoving it into our faces.
I'm not disputing that it's a terrible thing he did but with all the things going on in the world it seems a little strange that this is what they want to obsess over.

There's a couple of things I've been able to take away about this story.
One is that apparently beating your fiance'/wife is on par with opposing homosexual marriage because either one seems a worthy reason to lose your job.
The other thing is that the public seems to believe that they have a right to virtually flog the transgressor even though the public isn't the one he harmed.

I would think that instead of trying to banish this guy and his wife from society that people would be more interested in making this whole thing a teachable moment about how to break the cycle of domestic abuse.
I've seen couples go through this before and more time than not they seperate for a while and then without counseling they just get back together and basically rinse and repeat.
Even with counseling some couples repeat the cycle but more don't, they either separate for good or one partner learns why he/she has violent tendencies and learns to control his/her anger and urges.
 If people really cared about the situation then they would pressure the NFL to suspend Ray Rice until after he and his wife successfully complete counseling for their issues.

But the media really doesn't care about this couple, what they care about is distracting the public from Benghazi, the IRS, Obamacare,ISIS/ISIL and Obama's failure to confront them or the abysmal economy and a myriad of other things.

Funny thing is that the people fall for the media's deflections every time.

Phil Donahue vs. Ayn Rand


I ran across this earlier today and watched the whole thing.
I'll admit that I read Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead when I was in high school and both books bored me to tears but I got her lessons on free markets and her criticisms about altruism.
So I wanted to post this without much comment.

One other thing though...it reminded me about how much Donahue was an insufferable liberal douche.

A Tale of Immigrant Graditude

Here's another article that's worth reading, good thing it's the weekend and you don't have to rush through it to be on time for work.

Deport the Tsarnaev sisters
The Sisters Tsarnaeva have been nothing but trouble. Double, bubbling trouble.

While their Boston Marathon bomber brother Dzhokhar awaits trial this month for the bloody 2012 attacks that killed three and injured hundreds, his elder Chechen immigrant siblings Ailina and Bella remain on the loose in the U.S. after their own frequent run-ins with the law.

Last week, Ailina was arrested in Harlem after allegedly threatening “to blow up her live-in lover’s baby mama,” as the New York Post reported. Police charged Ailina, 23, with aggravated harassment and released her.

Will the legal system learn? Ailina’s time in America sends one clear message: No consequences. More trouble.

In 2013, she was released without bail in South Boston in connection with a three-year-old counterfeiting case. Prosecutors said she obstructed their investigation. They charged her with willfully lying to police in 2010.~snip~
This example is not an isolated story but is repeated countless times all over this country almost every day.
Obama is bound and determined to fling open the borders soon. Well just as soon as the midterms are over so it won't impact the other open border democrats.
Because, you see, Obama and the democrats have so little respect for the intelligence of voters that they believe postponing the threat to override congress will just pass over our heads.
But then again Obama was reelected despite his abysmal first four years.
Maybe he's on to something?

By Any Means Necessary

Here's a pretty short run down on the coercive techniques of the radical progressive left to shove their damaging and dangerous agenda down our throats.
Just the fact that they can enlist the aid of union organized civil servants to oppress speech that is contrary to theirs should raise alarm bells all across this country

A campaign to silence conservative speech

Yet we stand by and allow these partisan civil servants even more access to our personal and private information with Obamacare
What could go wrong?
