Question Of The Day: Were They Really?

While I have no issue with your average Confederate soldier, I do have a couple of interesting points:

1) They seceded prior to fighting against the union, therefore they were not Americans when they fought us.

2) They failed in their quest for independence. Thus, they were Americans the whole time.

Someone expound upon this for me, please.

Fundamental Transformation Update: No Longer No 1

Thanks, Barry!

A new World Competitiveness Ranking drops the United States from the top spot, which it has held for the past three years, into third behind China Hong Kong and Switzerland, which jumped from Nos. 2 and 4, respectively, last year, according to the IMD World Competitiveness Center (WCC), a research group within the IMD business school.

Does anybody believe this?

Here is Hillary Clinton…

The sexism is less virulent now than it was in 2008, she said, but still she encounters people on rope lines who tell her, “ ‘I really admire you, I really like you, I just don’t know if I can vote for a woman to be president.’ I mean, they come to my events and then they say that to me.”

Are you buying this? Did someone – anyone – say to Hillary Clinton that he likes and admires her but doesn’t know if he can vote for her because she is a woman? She goes on to say that it happened more than once.

We are expected to believe that people go to the trouble to come to her events, they fight traffic and search for parking, they push their ways through the crowd to get near her, they get a chance to say a few words to her and they say, “I really admire you, I really like you, I just don’t know if I can vote for a woman to be president”.

We are expected to believe this scenario? She really, really thinks we are stupid.

Maybe she is right.

Islamic Rape Culture: Sweden Becomes Absurdistan

Quran (23:5-6) – “..who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess…”

Quran (33:50) – “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee”

Quran (4:24) – “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.”

Quran (16:75) – “Allah sets forth the Parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another; He has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly favours from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly: are the two equal? (By no means;) praise be to Allah.’

I’m sure the Swedes are just racist, xenophobic, sexist, Islamophobes.

An animal was shot dead this weekend…

34BD01DF00000578-3614480-image-a-18_1464489763861

…and the Internet went insane. I am sure you know the story by now.

The screams of a terrified crowd may have made the situation even more dangerous as a gorilla manhandled a 3-year-old boy who had slipped into its enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday.

Kimberley Ann Perkins O’Connor told CNN that she was trying to take a picture of a 17-year-old male gorilla named Harambe, who was peeking out of his cave, when she heard a splash and then a man screaming. A child had fallen into the gorilla’s enclosure.
The sound attracted Harambe, who barreled over to the moat, saw the child and then knocked the boy against a wall, O’Connor said.

Matt Drudge called it “murder”. It sure as hell wasn’t that.

The only death was an animal. That is fortunate even though it was a valuable animal. The zoo should make corrections to prevent a repeat of the event in the future and move on.

All this post-modern hand wringing emotionalism gets old…


“Charge them with murder…” Sheesh.

The battle for the heart and soul of the GOP

broken

Below are two paragraphs that, I think, describe the current state of the battle for the Republican Party. These are extreme positions and I am certain there is some overlap between the two. Still, I think they are representative of the current state of affairs.

Position #1: We’ve been screwed by powerful people. The whole system is rigged against us. Getting ahead in America today requires powerful connections and special favors instead. Hard work, delayed gratification and innovation are increasingly meaningless. International trade helps the moneyed classes and hurts regular people like us. Immigration – legal and illegal – helps corporate interests but hurts regular Americans. We need government to punish those corrupt, selfish rich and powerful people.

Position #2: Government has hobbled the American business. Programs like Obamacare make it increasingly difficult for businesses to be profitable and thus create jobs. Excessive corporate taxation undermines business plans. Americans, when not chained down by government, have the ability to create a great, dynamic, growing economy. Entrepreneurialism, innovation and a talent for trade and commerce are major components of what makes America great. America should welcome anyone willing to obey the law, work hard and contribute. The business of America is business and the government needs to get out of the way.

If you were forced to choose one camp or the other and could not straddle both, which camp best describes your feelings about the state of America today.

Discuss.

NC’s restroom law is not anti-LGBT

At the Daily Signal, an individual with some experience in the matter explains why North Carolina’s restroom law is not anti-LGBT.

“L” is for lesbian. The bill is not anti-lesbian because lesbians have no desire to enter a stinky men’s restroom. Lesbians will use the women’s room without a second thought. So the law is not anti-L.

“G” is for gay. Gay men have no interest in using women’s bathrooms. So the law is not anti-G.

“B” is for bi-sexual. The “B” in the LGBT have never been confused about their gender. Theirs is also a sexual preference only that doesn’t affect choice of restroom or locker room.

“T” is for transgender. The “T” identifies a person who has undergone hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery, and legally changes the gender marker on his or her birth certificate.

The North Carolina law is not anti-T because the law clearly states that the appropriate restroom is the one that corresponds to the gender stated on the birth certificate. Therefore, a transgender person with a birth certificate that reads “female” uses the female restroom, even if the gender noted at birth was male.

He explains why, then, people have their panties in knots over the law. Read it all.

Americans frustrated by electoral process

93158451_350x350

By wide margins, American distrust both Clinton and Trump yet Clinton v Trump is their choice.

Seventy percent of Americans say they feel frustrated about this year’s presidential election, including roughly equal proportions of Democrats and Republicans, according to a recent national poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. More than half feel helpless and a similar percent are angry.

Nine in 10 Americans lack confidence in the country’s political system, and among a normally polarized electorate, there are few partisan differences in the public’s lack of faith in the political parties, the nominating process, and the branches of government.

Americans do not see either the Republicans or the Democrats as particularly receptive to new ideas or the views of the rank-and-file membership. However, the candidacy of Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination is more likely to be viewed as good for his party than Donald Trump’s bid for the Republican Party.

It is difficult to understand how, in a nation of 330 million people, two candidates with sky high negative ratings are the presumptive nominees. It seems there is something desperately wrong with a system that produces two bad choices and forces the electorate to choose the “least bad” candidate.

“This is a step forward – society is adapting to some needs of women.”

The subject line is a quote from Virginia Tan, founder of Lean In China, a women’s empowerment organization.

On Saturday night, the Qianjiang Evening News, a state-run newspaper, reported that since March, a highway service area in the eastern metropolis of Hangzhou had been offering extra-large parking spaces specifically for women. The women’s-only spots — 1.5 times the size of normal spaces – are framed in pink, and marked by icons representing a skirt-wearing woman.

“The bigger parking spaces are for women drivers whose driving skills are not superb,” Pan Tietong, the service area’s manager, told the newspaper. He said he had encountered female drivers who were unskilled at backing up into spots, and sometimes asked security guards to help them park.

The spots “are especially designed for women drivers,” he said. “It’s a humane measure.”

The report aroused accusations of sexism on Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. Many users said that the spaces perpetuated the stereotype that women are worse drivers than men.

Things are sure different in China.

By the way, Virginia Tan probably wasn’t named “Virginia”. It is a thing in China now for people to adopt Western names. My brother helped several people choose their names. One had decided on “Hulk” but my brother advised against it.

Snoop Dogg says he will not be watching ‘Roots.’

He wants no part of it.

“They going to just to keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?” the rapper says.

Snoop Dogg has no plans to watch the Roots remake, and he’s telling his fans to also boycott the show.

The rapper sent out his message over social media on Monday.

“I’m sick of this shit. How the f— are they going to put Roots on, on Memorial Day?” Snoop said in an Instagram video. “They going to just keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?”

The History channel’s revival is a four-part, eight-hour series that debuts Monday.

Snoop said he has no interest in new shows and movies — specifically mentioning 12 Years a Slave — that “keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”

“I ain’t watching that shit, and I advise you motherf-—ers as real n— like myself; f— them television shows,” Snoop said. “Let’s create our own shit based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what’s real. F— that old shit.”

Frankly, I get his point and I agree with it. For decades shows like roots have portrayed black people as victims. While that may have been healthy in the 1970s in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement, it is no longer so.

So many Americans have clamored to wear the mantle of victimhood that it is almost universal. Millions try to reap the benefits of being a victim but with the benefit comes cost. Snoop seems to be tired of wallowing in victimhood. He wants to move on. He wants to put that shit in the past. He isn’t a victim and he knows it. In fact, he is the opposite of a victim.

He is tired of the charade. That’s healthy, in my opinion.

A Sunday Sermon

Good morning Real Revo. It’s a beautiful day today and it’s a real blessing to be alive to enjoy it. Regardless of what the government and the mainstream media would have you believe, GOD is in control. There is no time or place when he’s not in control and the days we are living have been prophesied. In spite of how others would have us feel, it’s an exciting time to be alive.

Jesus Christ said that we would be sanctified by the Truth and that God’s Word is Truth. That is what we bring you today, the uttermost Truth. If you are weary and in need of a blessing, let his Word be that blessing today.

The wisdom of the people in making decisions…

People don’t know what they want because they don’t know what they don’t know.

You might have heard that Americans overwhelmingly favor mandatory labeling for foods containing genetically modified ingredients. That’s true, according to a new study: 84 percent of respondents said they support the labels.

But a nearly identical percentage—80 percent—in the same survey said they’d also like to see labels on food containing DNA.

The study, published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal last week, also found that 33 percent of respondents thought that non-GM tomatoes “did not contain genes” and 32 percent thought that “vegetables did not have DNA.” So there’s that.

The Title IX Paradox

paradox

According to the Obama Administration, Title IX requires that schools allow students to use restrooms and locker rooms that conform to the gender identity they have adopted, not necessarily to the one they were born. But Title IX does more than let boys in the girl’s room. Title IX requires schools to protect students from sexual harassment.

Under Title IX, sexual harassment in education includes any unwanted and unwelcome sexual behavior that significantly interferes with a student’s access to educational opportunities. This includes making sexual comments, jokes, gestures, or looks; claiming that a person is gay or lesbian; spreading sexual rumors about a person; touching, grabbing or pinching someone in a sexual way; intentionally brushing up against someone in a sexual way; and flashing or “mooning” someone.

In other words, Title IX requires both that schools let boys use the girl’s locker room AND that girls in the locker room be protected from sexual harassment in the form of unwanted looks or flashing.

Okay folks, release the lawsuits! This should be interesting.

Trump gets his 1,237 delegates

That pretty much ties it up.

The Associated Press declared Thursday that Donald Trump earned the support of enough delegates to win the nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

Based on interviews with several dozen unbound delegates — those free to vote as they choose in Cleveland — the AP determined that enough had pledged support to Trump to guarantee him support of the 1,237 delegates required to clinch the nomination.

About 200 of the delegates are unbound so if it turned out that Trump was on Putin’s payroll or, worse, on Hillary Clinton’s payroll he could still be thrown under the bus at the convention. That’s not going to happen, however.

I will go on the record as predicting that the Democrats have an October Surprise queued up and it will be a doozy.

On to the general election!
