After Las Vegas, What’s Next?

 

Our hearts and prayers go out to all affected by the Las Vegas massacre.

From the Los Angeles Times:

People looking for a loved one in Las Vegas can call (866) 535-5654. The n

umber doubles as Nevada’s 211 number to connect residents with health, human and social services.

As you know, there were numerous acts of selfless heroism on Sunday night. Amidst unspeakable evil, the goodness of ordinary Americans shone through like a beacon:

10+ Ways to Spot A Liberal Dude

Steak

Let’s face it, ladies. Liberal men make the worst dates.

Unless your version of Prince Charming is a whiny, self-absorbed petulant who needs a road map to figure out which way the wind is blowing and thinketh more government is The Answer to everything – and if it is, what’s wrong with you? –  you’re better off staying home watching Jane Austen flicks with the dog.

Here are 10 ways to spot a liberal loser a mile away*. From the “New Voices” video series by Dinesh D’Souza.

*Conservelocity’s 10 Dead Giveaways:

  1. He’s 40 years old and lives in his mother’s basement.
  2. He wears the likeness of a bereted Cuban commie on his T-shirt and doesn’t have a clue who he’s promoting.
  3. He thinks the First Amendment applies only to him and his ideological cronies.
  4. He thinks the Second Amendment applies only to hunters and “militia.”
  5. He has no opinion on Amendments 3 thru 10 cuz he can’t count that high.
  6. He couldn’t spell “Constitution” if he tripped over it.
  7. His favorite new word is “microaggression” – and probably can’t spell that, either.
  8. He prefers cumquats, guavas and couscous to a New York steak – and insists you do likewise.
  9. He’s perenially exhausted from being *offended* at everyone and everything. All. The. Time.
  10. He’s so busy being “open-minded” that he has nothing but wind whistling between his ears.

What would you add?

What Do Women Want?

Choc candy and roses

Okay, class. First things first: Guys, you can read along. But you have to bring chocolate. Now that we’ve got that straight, lemme say this:

I’m sick to death of the party of Bill Clinton, Bob Filner, Anthony Weiner, John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer, and the Chappaquidick Kid telling anyone how to treat anyone, anywhere, in any context. Particularly women.

While we’re on the topic, ever notice how DemoLibs policies and politics routinely treat women as if we’re: 1) Stupid 2) Brainless 3) Sheeple 4) Stupid 5) Helpless 6) Hopeless 7) Stupid 8) Mind-numbed monoliths, and oh yeah: Stupid.

DemoLibs rarely wrap “women’s issues” in a whole-person narrative that includes mind, will, skill, soul, expertise or ability. Nope. According to your average DemoLib, women are only interested in access to abortion, “free” birth-control or government sponsored “free” healthcare. We’re not interested in issues like government spending and infringement of our Constitutional rights. Unemployment. National security.  Taxes, crime, foreign policy. Secure borders. Education. Or the impact of government debt on our children and grandchildren.

Like that’s not patronizing or anything.

The typical DemoLib mantra that supposedly appeals to women goes something like:

NOW on Hobby Lobby: ‘I Am Woman, Hear Me Whine”

Well. That didn’t take long. Maybe that whole War on Women thing has worn a bit thin. So, following last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling, the usual suspects have launched yet another salvo in their ongoing charm offensive: Gender Bigotry.

Ever the tail wagging the dog and never one to miss an opportunity to miss the point by a mile and a half, National Organization for Whiners President Terry O’Neill had this to say about last Monday’s Supreme Court ruling:

The men who wrote this decision on behalf of the Supreme Court have entered into a War on Women. They have become a blatantly politically activist, anti-woman political organization and…. There are some beliefs that are so heinous that government should not respect them, no way, no how.”

Notice the second word O’Neill uses in her first sentence. Oh, the horror!

Also notice that the entity that posted this clip, Occupy Democrats, describes ONeill’s comments as “brilliant” – which tells you something about Occupy Democrats. (We’ll just call ’em “O.D.” for short. You can fill in the blanks yourself.)

Right on cue, Ms. Gender Bigotry Babe trots out Apartheid, slavery, Jim Crow and segregation. “We should not accept plain-out gender bigotry, plain and simple” she says. “Withholding basic healthcare from women is bigotry…. We should not accept it, no matter how sincerely the belief is held.”

Aside from the brazen distortion of the facts surrounding Hobby Lobby, O’Neill’s All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others comment puts her smack dab in the middle of Animal Farm.

Yo, Terry: How’s the view from the dark side of the moon?

As has been pointed out elsewhere, O’Neill conveniently omitted the fact that no “rights” have been taken away from anyone. Any Hobby Lobby employee who feels that their employer-provided insurance must include four specific abortifacient contraceptives is free to work elsewhere.

The delicious irony here is that the feminist movement used to be about female empowerment. Now it’s about female dependency. The whole “I am woman, hear me roar” thing seems to be replaced with the omnipresent whine: “I am woman, dependent on government to gimme, gimme, gimme because I’m too weak and feeble and incapable of doing for myself.”

 

Waaah!

Meanwhile, here’s Merriam-Webster’s definition of gender: 1gen·der noun \ˈjen-dər\: the state of being male or female.

Here’s M-W’s definition of bigotry:

1:  the state of mind of a bigot. 2:  acts or beliefs characteristic of a bigot. synonyms include dogmatism, illiberalism, illiberality, illiberalness, intolerance, intolerantness, narrow-mindedness, opinionatedness, partisanship, sectarianism, small-mindedness

Here’s M-W’s definition of bigot:

A person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

Kinda sounds like O.D., Terry Gender Bigotry Babe and the National Organization of Whiners, doesn’t it?

Like SHE’D Know? Sandra Fluke on “What Moms Really Need This Mother’s Day”

Facebook - Public Domain
Facebook – Public Domain

Oh, joy. Sandra Fluke is running for state Senate in California’s District 26. Remember Sandra? She’s the Cornell grad, Georgetown law student and “leader for gender equality and reproductive rights” who could afford tens of thousands of dollars in tuition but wanted taxpayers to foot the bill for her birth control. Trumpets her web site:

 Sandra came to national attention in 2012 when she testified before members of Congress regarding comprehensive reproductive health care coverage. She then fought back against Rush Limbaugh when he and conservative commentators and politicians launched sexist attacks against her and all women, protecting a woman’s right to be heard by her government without fear of being silenced. Once thrust into the national spotlight, she used this platform as a powerful tool to speak out for progressive change.

Besides gaining fame when she “bravely spoke up on Capitol Hill in defense of contraceptive coverage,” Fluke is “an attorney and women’s rights activist” and a “fighter for progressive change.” Her endorsements include Christine Pelosi (Nancy’s daughter), Chair, Women’s Caucus, California Democratic Party, Congresswoman Janice Hahn, Gloria Steinem, and Attorney Sarah Weddington of Roe v. Wade (in)fame. Fluke represents everything Lefties stand for: Dependency, subsidies, “choices” without consequences, victimhood, radical feminism and cultural decay. Find out more at Fluke’s Facebook page.)

But wait. This Democrat darling’s foray into “national attention” regarding a lack of contraceptive coverage at Georgetown has more holes than a wiffle ball.

Sheryl Sandberg: How ‘Bout a Little Cheese With That Whine?

Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg is joining Megyn Kelly on tonight’s edition of The Kelly File, going one-on-one with Megyn “from leaning in to banning bossy, …talking backlash, politics and pay.”

Be still my heart.

Sandberg is the rocket scientist behind the Ban Bossy campaign.  So ICYMI, here’s a quick revisit of my response to Sandberg’s I-Am-Woman, Hear-Me-Whine campaign (originally posted on March 12):

 ***

Well, yabba-dabba-doo. LeanIn.org and Lifetime have joined forces to produce the new “Ban Bossy” campaign. It looks like this:

The PSA focuses on “stamping out the pejorative word for women” and stars Glee’s Jane Lunch, Jennifer Garner and Condoleeza Rice.

A Hat Trick

This PSA is your standard, garden variety DemoLib response to anything and everything they dislike, don’t understand (that category could fill the Encyclopedia Britannica, but I digress), or can’t handle: Ban It. 

Wait a minute. Doesn’t demanding that a word be “banned” perpetuate the very thing it’s supposed to resolve? As in, reinforcing the Brainless Damsel in Distress stereotype that girls are too frail and weak to fight their own battles, so let’s all go home, batten down the hatches and play nice so they get a turn, too? Newsflash: Darlin’, if you’re worried about being called bossy, pushy or stubborn, maybe you shouldn’t be in charge in the first place?

Okay, okay. I get it. “Bossy” is rarely – if ever – applied to a man in a pejorative manner. But here’s the Captain Obvious Moment: For women to “be strong,” we need to ban words? Frankly, if we’re going to play that game, some things are a lot worse than being called “bossy”: Three more years of Obama. John Kerry. Another season of The Bachelor.

Newsflash #2: It’s only “negative” if you let it be.

Here’s an Idea: Instead of banning “bossy,” why not embrace it? Grab the word and turn it on its head. Instead of running for cover or pleading the 5th a la Lois Lerner Part I and II, refuse to play the DemoLib Ban Game. Step up to the Bossy plate and own it. Better yet, ladies, park it. Like this:

You bet  I’m bossy. Now, shut up and get the door.

Sen. Patty Murray and Co. & Hobby Lobby: How ‘Bout Another Round of ‘Shoe on the Other Foot’?

Source image: public domain

An April 6 post on Sen. Patty I’m Not a Moron, I Just Play One In The Senate (And Everywhere Else) Murray’s Facebook page posed this non-sequitur related to the Hobby Lobby case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court:

Do Corporations Have Religious Rights?

Even though anyone with half a brain can tell you this a classic misdirect on the salient issue in this case – kinda like Healthcare.gov – that didn’t stop the Mindless Murray Minions from chiming in. Right on cue, these little darlin’s started shilling about Viagra, misogynist insurance coverage, discrimination, hypocrisy, “corporations aren’t people” and the usual claptrap you hear on the subject from every DemoLib that can crawl out from under a rock. They also launched that tired old canard they dredge up every time they can’t think of a real argument, which is most of the time: Gender Wars. (If you missed my incredibly incisive post on the topic, shame on you. Alright, alright. Here’s the link.)

Here’s a brief sampling of the *brilliant* (rolled eyes) responses said Murray Facebook post engendered:
