British Woman Arrested for Referencing Factual Truth – Moonbattery

Progressive tyranny has reached such an extreme in the moonbat dystopia formerly known as Great Britain that people are literally imprisoned for stating factual truth rather than politically preferred lies:

Tell the truth, go to jail? Hmmm. I wonder how that will work in court?

Court: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?

Me: Hell NO!!! You go to jail for that!

Bikini baristas fight for their right to bare butts

Seriously? Who even uses a term like ‘anal cleft’?

I don’t want to see you ‘anal cleft’ at all. OK, I might not mind if a young, attractive woman is wearing a thong at the beach… which is not what I consider a work environment. If you are at work showing your ‘cleft’ I’ll consider it sexual harassment and file a complaint.

How much “anal cleft” is one allowed to show while at work? That’s the question one Washington state court is trying to answer. A US Circuit Court of Appeals is reviewing an ongoing legal saga

A US Circuit Court of Appeals is reviewing an ongoing legal saga between bikini baristas and the city of Everett over the anatomical phrase “anal cleft” and whether dress codes imposed on businesses violate their civil rights.

Their civil rights? How about MY civil right to not see your nasty ‘anal’ anything? Showing that in public is rude, crude, and should be socially unacceptable. Have these people no self-respect?

Well, if you go around showing it off, don’t complain if some raghead camel-jockey member of the ‘religion of peace’ rapes you. You asked for it.

Liberals Trying To Kill Electoral College Without Constitutional Amendment – The Lid

So, the even bigger problem here is that if the liberals succeed in their plan to dismantle the Electoral College – the votes of a few states will determine the presidency instead of the votes of a majority of the states. Hillary built an insurmountable popular vote lead of 8.6 million votes on only five states; CA, NY, IL, MA, and MD. The Democrats are very well aware of this, which is why they are fighting hard to get rid of the Electoral College.

What we have here is bullying. The big states are trying to bully the small states.

‘Gender,’ Envy and Self-Pity

Ace of Spades summarizes a not-so-surprising discovery: [F]emale-to-male transgenders are discovering that “Male Privilege” actually doesn’t exist, and that the actual privilege belongs to women.

Read the whole post. It is good. I do want to follow a digression in the article and ‘ditto’ this digression:

Incidentally, here’s something about me: I don’t watch YouTube videos. If you want to tell me something, write it. For any literate person, reading is far more efficient than listening to the spoken word. I am an extremely fast reader, and could fully comprehend the transcript of an entire 15-minute video in less than two minutes, and why should I waste that additional time? This is why I’m sometimes confounded by the fame, such as it is, of YouTube “celebrities.” There are people out there who have hundreds of thousands of YouTube subscribers and rate as “celebrities” within whatever niche of fandom they appeal to, and I’ve never heard of them, because I don’t watch YouTube videos. And when I see someone like Carl Benjamin (a/k/a, Sargon of Akkad) making a really good point in a YouTube video, I am tempted to yell at my computer: “WHERE’S THE F–KING TRANSCRIPT?” Like, you couldn’t even be bothered to write up your argument as a blog post? If you believe what you’re saying on your YouTube channel is important, wouldn’t it reach a wider audience and have more impact if you took time to publish a transcript, or at least a synopsis of your argument? But I digress . . .

Amen. I don’t watch YouTube videos either, with one exception: Learning a new skill or craft. I’ve been learning guitar off of YouTube videos. Also honing my woodworking skills with videos. That’s it. I can learn in several ways but some things you just have to be shown how to do. Opinions, history, philosophy, legislation, news… I want to READ it! I read and comprehend quickly. I was reading college level in fourth grade. (Doesn’t mean I understood it all, of course.)

The problem here is education, or the lack thereof, of the English language today. Most YouTubers probably can’t write a proper sentence. (or write it in cursive.) Those old ‘diagram a sentence’ exercises I had throughout school are probably not taught anymore. As for writing in cursive:

Some argue that cursive is no longer relevant because it isn’t included in the Common Core State Standards. But these standards only include those skills that are testable and measurable in the classroom; they don’t address basic foundation skills, like handwriting or even spelling. That said, the Common Core emphasizes the importance of expository writing to demonstrate understanding of key concepts, and fast, legible handwriting is the technology universally available to students to facilitate content development. Cursive, therefore, is vital to helping students master the standards of written expression and critical thinking, life skills that go well beyond the classroom.

Add in the fact that Johnny can’t read:

In 2015, said APR writer Emily Hanford, only 56 percent of Bethlehem students were proficient in reading, so Kim Harper was charged with finding out why.

The problem?

The teachers were talking about how students should attack words in a story. When a child came to a word she didn’t know, the teacher would tell her to look at the picture and guess.

Word-guessing. The teachers apparently had no idea how to teach reading. They thought if they could just throw words at the students, they would figure it out. They all had education degrees but none of them had ever been taught how to teach children to read.

Reading and writing go together. If you can’t do either you end up on YouTube talking way too much instead of writing down your arguments in clear, concise, logical paragraphs.

Like Robert Stacey McCain says in the article, I digress. But I thought I was the only one annoyed by this reliance on videos and just had to rant.

Man wants to sue his parents for giving birth to him ‘without consent’

Raphael Samuel said he had a ‘great relationship’ with his parents but has compared having children to ‘kidnapping and slavery’.

The 27-year-old from Mumbai is an ‘anti-natalist’ who believes it is wrong to put an unwilling child through the ‘rigmarole’ of life for the pleasure of its parents.

I do believe that this Leftist ‘problem’ has a Leftist ‘solution.’ I refer, of course, to abortion. It would have to be retroactive, but I doubt that Democrats, especially in New York or Virginia, would have a problem with that.

De Blasio on Amazon HQ: Must ‘Hold Their Feet to the Fire’ on Progressive Values

“We want to see jobs for public housing residents, we want to see unionized employees in the distribution centers, and we’re going to fight for that.”

Progressive values? Examples:

• Negative right to life.

• Negative right to free speech.

• Negative right to freedom of religion.

• Negative right to freedom of association.

• Negative right to keep and bear arms.

Progressive values are negative values.

California’s Green ‘Bantustans’ Are Coming to America

Why call neighborhoods with mandated ultra-high density “Green Bantustans”? Because the Bantustan was where a racist elite used to herd the African masses during South Africa’s apartheid era. The commonality between the Green Bantustan and the Racist Bantustan becomes clear when you step back and ponder what is happening. In both cases, a privileged elite condemn the vast majority of individuals to live in a concentrated area designed to minimize their impact on the land.…

“Smart Growth” is Not Smart, It’s Just Cruel
None of this is necessary. The idea that American policymakers should enforce urban containment is a cruel, entirely unfounded, self-serving lie.

So that’s why. I’m house hunting and I noticed the lack of yards in new construction. I’m avoiding cities now and looking for a couple of acres in the rural areas.
