It’s a strange irony that, in the age of the Internet, which was supposed to encourage more transparency and debate, the open exchange of ideas is under threat. This was pointed out by another famous science fiction writer, Michael Crichton. “In the information society,” says Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, “No one thinks. We expected to banish paper, but we actually banished thought.”
The face of treason: Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar (TX)
Mark H. Metcalf, a former federal immigration judge, told the Examiner that a criminal case could be brought against Escobar if she is found to be involved in the alleged scheme, which amounts to fraud and making false statements to U.S. officials.
Fraud? Hell no! This is aiding and abetting foreign criminals to break U.S. laws. It is giving aid and comfort to hostile invaders.
It is treason.
She, and her staff, should hang.
No, Heinlein didn’t preach. What he did was be an American. Be an American so intensely that it was impossible for his work not to transmit it. The internal logic of the stories themselves led you to believe and think like an American.
I think that’s why the left hates him so much. At least that’s the only reason I can imagine that a writer who went out of his way to have minorities and women in starring roles in his books can be considered “racist, sexist, homophobic.” (Well that, and the fact that the left has heads full of rocks.)
In these days when the Betsy Ross flag is being transmogrified by leftist hate and intolerance into a “White Supremacy Symbol” (I ordered one for my yard, btw.) it’s impossible not to realize that what the left is trying to do is cut us off from our own history, our own symbols, and that which makes us uniquely American.
These men knew what they risked. The penalty for treason was death by hanging. And remember, a great British fleet was already at anchor in New York Harbor.
Proud to be infected with and spread an incurable deadly disease. People like this need to be rounded up and quarantined on a remote island.
Who exactly deserves reparations here?
“Whiteness confers knowable, quantifiable privileges,” Coates ranted in a defense of reparations.
What then is the sources of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ known and quantifiable privileges, of turning down a New York Times column while getting paid by The Atlantic to blog about comic books?
How does the underprivileged Coates get to be a visiting professor at MIT despite not having a degree?
I think ALL REGISTERED DEMOCRATS should pay reparations. Democrats started a civil war to defend their ‘white privilege’ to own black slaves. Democrats started Jim Crow to defend their ‘white privilege’ to keep freed black slaves as second-class citizens.
Slavery is the only ‘white privilege’ Democrats recognize.
Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan embraced the digital money movement on Wednesday, saying his firm has “more to gain than anybody” from the booming trend of non-cash transactions.
“We want a cashless society,” Moynihan, who heads up the second largest U.S. bank, told attendees at Fortune’s Brainstorm Finance conference.
Because then we can really start banning conservatives from life. Imagine your credit/debit card declined because you own a gun. Or voted Republican. Or go to a church that still believes in the Bible.
