Abortion is Not a Fundamental Right, It’s a Fundamental Wrong

June 24, 2022

Today the United States Supreme Court handed down a decision regarding Roe vs. Wade, essentially overturning the flawed “law of the land,” which originally was passed on January 22, 1973, and did what was constitutionally correct by leaving it up to individual states to decide whether or not to allow women to murder living babies inside their wombs.

Unhinged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on a post-decision tirade saying that the “radical Supreme Court” is “eviscerating Americans’ rights and endangering their health and safety.” No, Nancy, an abortion endangers the health and safety of an unborn baby as well as the mother of that baby. She went on to refer to abortion as “health freedom” and “family planning.” Abortion is anything but family planning.

Struggling to put a coherent sentence together, Pelosi stated that “the hypocrisy is raging but the harm is endless. What this means to women is such an insult. It’s a slap in the face to women about using their own judgment, to make their own decisions about their reproductive freedom.”

We are all free to do whatever we want, it just doesn’t make it right. This is lost on her, though. Just because she wants something to be true doesn’t make it so. But that’s the unnatural thought pattern of the left.

Regime Spokesperson Joe Biden chimed in saying that the Supreme Court took away a constitutional right. Reading, from a giant teleprompter, words obviously written by someone else, he referred to abortion as a “fundamental right.” It is not, nor has it ever been, a fundamental right, but rather it is a fundamental wrong. Our rights don’t come from the Supreme Court, much less the government. They come from God. Pelosi and Biden should understand this since they both claim to be practicing Catholics. But their position on this very subject is why they have both been rejected from taking Communion, a Catholic ritual and a Christian sacrament.

Biden made the point that women are now going to be penalized by not being allowed to have abortions. Women, he says, who have been raped or have been impregnated by incest will now have to bear the babies of their rapists. Although pregnancies by rape and incest are very extreme, they also are very rare. This is not a common thing. Most women who have abortions have them because they view their pregnancy as an inconvenience. They don’t want their current lifestyle disrupted by a pregnancy, then by having to raise a child.

It’s pretty sad, however, that the United States, for some moronic reason, gives the organization Planned Parenthood a half billion of our tax dollars. While it claims to provide health services for women, you know services like mammograms, birth control, physicals and check-ups, what it primarily provides are abortions. Women’s health services are commonly provided by primary care physicians and general medical practitioners and included in most HMO or PPO plans, so why is there a need for Planned Parenthood if what it mostly does is provide women’s health services? Let’s face it, abortion is not a woman’s health service and Planned Parenthood is not primarily focused on a woman’s health.

The claim the left makes that abortion is a constitutional right is laughable and a flat out lie. Nowhere in the Constitution of the United States does it give a woman a right to terminate a pregnancy. Moreover, the Constitution endorses life. The bottom line is that this decision does not take away a right enshrined by the US Supreme Court 50 years ago. It was never a right in the first place.

While I Was Busy Part 1

April 29, 2022

It’s been a while since my last post. I commonly write down my ideas and sometimes put them into article form, however one batch of article ideas remained incomplete and unpublished. With how busy I am with life and other things, a lot of content becomes non-current. So I decided to cover some of the topics I started articles with and create an article with those. This allows me to air what I didn’t share back when it was current.

Recently I heard about another conviction of a law enforcement officer for doing his/her job. I can’t remember all the details but I started writing the following when a different law enforcement officer was convicted.

There needs to be a law which protects law enforcement officers from being unfairly indicted for being involved in any given criminal interaction. They should have the protection they deserve when they’re involved in shootings, especially when suspects they shoot have failed to comply with their orders. Also, they need to be protected when a suspect dies in custody after trying to restrain the suspect who is resisting arrest. It should not be left up to a jury hell-bent on unjustly punishing law enforcement officers when they are simply doing their jobs and keeping the public safe. Any officer involved in a shooting death or other death of a suspect should have the courtesy of having the case reviewed by a special board proficient in law enforcement cases. Their fate should not be in the hands of biased and/or racist prosecutors and a confused and unknowledgeable public.

Here is something I wrote on the day California Governor Gavin Newsom should have been recalled. I’m sure there was fraud involved with this election as there was with the 2020 presidential election.

Brace Yourself

Today is the day Californians vote whether to recall a hypocritical and tyrannical governor whose actions speak louder than his words or to usher in a breath of fresh air and release the economical chokehold California has been suffering. Actually Californians have been voting for three weeks already since it is a state that allows early cheating, er, voting. How else does it become a one-party rule state without the system being rigged?

California truly is a microcosm of America right now but today is an opportunity to change that. Governor Gavin Newsom has brought his twisted and radical left wing ideology into the landscape and most Californians frankly are sick of it. Others are just oblivious to it.

They are sick and tired of him ignoring science and implementing mask wearing mandates. They are fed up with closures to our economy, largely affecting small business owners and workers. They are furious at the double standard he exhibits when he eats dinner and socializes unmasked at a posh Bay Area restaurant. It’s time for him to be removed.

Here’s one regarding a question Regime Spokesperson Joe Biden asked several months ago:

To Answer Your Question

In a recent speech 2020 candidate Joe Biden delivered inflammatory rhetoric by asking the question: Are you on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor?

Well, when it was an issue Democrats were on the side of Bull Connor. It was a Democrat, after all, who started the Ku Klux Klan, a racist group. Republicans fought fiercely against them. Democratic Party icon the late Senator Robert Byrd was a Grand Kleagle in the KKK. Biden was a good friend and spoke highly of him.

I guess that answers the question.

 Finally, here’s one I wrote about the Joe Rogan vs. Spotify controversy:

The Opinion of the Elite

By now you’ve probably heard about the controversy surrounding Joe Rogan. He has a hugely popular podcast on Spotify that attracts millions of subscribers. Apparently on his podcast he talked about his bout with COVID-19 and he rightfully questioned some of the “science” being discussed in the media. It’s his right to do so and no supposed “fact-checking” agency has any right to say otherwise. But media elitists and virtue signalers got uptight and made it an issue. And when they make it an issue they go on the attack. Apparently non-relevant musical artist India.Arie posted a compilation of video and/or audio clips of Rogan using the N-word and that’s when things got intense.

You see, Rogan has the platform that allows him to question policy and science that the elite promotes. And he has just as much right to do or say what he feels on his own podcast as those who attack him do. But the elite are threatened. It really should be fair for him to do that. If enough people hear him and begin to do their own questioning, it could be bad for the elite.

It doesn’t matter if they’re right or wrong. It’s about power, power over our lives, our ability to think for ourselves, our right to ask questions and have opinions. That is power in the wrong hands and that is dangerous and scary.

Joe Rogan is still dangerous for the elite because they know that he can out them. They know that he can just explain to his audience that it’s not about a few bad words he said several years ago that offend some people. After all, he’s a comedian who works the stand-up circuit. His job is to say bad and offensive words for laughs. No, it is about the elite wanting to control us. Their opinion is that we shouldn’t be allowed to have an opinion that counters theirs, let alone is heard by around 9 million people.

The elite that wants to control us will stop at nothing to achieve disaster in the lives of their opponents. They don’t want people to think about things because when they do they realize they’re being swindled ideologically. They don’t care about the science if the science doesn’t work for them. When tech companies are able to silence people like Joe Rogan, well they can silence just about anyone they don’t like and that kind of power has no place in the land of the free.

Stay tuned for the second installment of this article.

January 6 – Ashli Babbitt Day

January 5, 2022

In memory of Air Force veteran and American patriot Ashli Babbitt, who was killed by U.S. Capitol Police officer Lt. Michael Byrd during the peaceful protest that got out of hand, January 6 should now be called Ashli Babbitt Day.

Babbitt, who unfortunately ended up inside the capitol building in Washington D.C., was the only person killed in what Democrats, the media and far left radicals call an insurrection. Although several other people who attended the rally have died since January 6, 2021, they did not die due to what occurred that day at the capitol. The media may report it as such but it simply is not true.

But this is to be expected of the biased media, who are complicit with Democrats and who will take any opportunity that is presented to them to do political and personal harm to any of their opponents and especially President Donald Trump. It isn’t surprising then that when President Trump offered to provide thousands of National Guard troops as security, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declined. Perhaps she knew the disaster it would cause and the opportunity to make him look bad.

So as the left makes criminals like George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and others their hero’s, it’s time we honor a real patriot and a real hero and declare January 6 as Ashli Babbitt Day.

Do Republicans Really Have a Messaging Problem?

January 20, 2021

Today was the day Joe Biden was sworn into office as a faux president of the United States. Of course all sane and rational thinking people who have been paying attention the last two months know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this election was stolen and a coup d’etat was executed on Americans. The deep state got even deeper as the Supreme Court of the United States jumped in and assisted the swamp.

There are many fronts that affected the perceived 2020 election result including Democrats unconstitutionally changing the election laws in certain states to favor their party; the use of voting machines programmed to manipulate the vote count; Democrat personnel working the voting centers manipulating the vote tallies; US courts unwilling to consider evidence of obvious fraud; and powerful biased companies that set the tables to suppress information voters should have been able to access.

An election can be manipulated by companies and conglomerates that are in the business of information collection by altering the algorithms that drive, or seek to drive, web traffic. By having some amount of, or even total, control over what millions of undecided voters view online is a massive advantage to the party they’re biased toward, in this case the Democrat party.

For example, Google has been exposed for having a bias and manipulating data in the 2016 election. Google is a large company with multiple divisions, from search engine and information dissemination to Google Earth to Google Docs, it goes on and on. Google definitely enhances people’s online experiences. But what many people also use it for is to manage their social media pages for their businesses and organizations.

Social media is obviously huge for companies and Google is so widely used it’s hard to avoid using their services. Almost everyone uses Google in one form or another. But when a conservative person wants to take advantage of Google business, as anyone would because it’s a useful tool for small businesses, what impact does this have on conservatives, since Google is so biased?

The fact that search results favor the left and disadvantage the right makes it ethically and morally unfair.

This is exactly what we saw in the 2020 election with Twitter and Facebook. Both companies deliberately suppressed stories that favored President Trump and hurt Joe Biden. When the New York Post tweeted a story exposing Hunter Biden’s crimes and misdeeds, the social media giant Twitter was quick to take it down and censor free speech. Facebook and Twitter attach labels to posts they disagree with which state something to the effect of “our fact checkers found this post (or article) to be in dispute or contain disinformation.”

After the election a study by the Media Research Center found that around 17% of those who had not heard about the Hunter Biden story said they would not have voted for Joe Biden had they known.

This presents another problem. Aside from Twitter and Facebook censoring major stories, why are so many people disengaged from politics and reality? There could be multiple reasons.

One might be that many people are just lazy and can’t be bothered by it. Many simply just don’t think for themselves but rather allow others and the media to decide for them. Or it could be that Republicans have a messaging problem.

However, it could also be that Republicans are unable to get their message out because social media has hijacked the messaging vehicles by suppressing stories. Then again, many people are legitimately frightened of the repercussions they’ll experience if they show any support for anyone on the right.

Does the right really have a messaging problem or is the left so organized and invested in keeping people from hearing and reading the truth, truth which could swing the vote a certain way? I believe it’s a little of the former and a lot of the latter.

Statement Regarding Capitol Building Mayhem

January 12, 2021

Last Wednesday, January 6, 2021, a half million supporters of President Trump gathered in Washington D.C. at a rally and peaceful protest to voice their disdain for the outrageous and obviously fraudulent and rigged election. During the rally a faction of protesters separated themselves from the majority of peaceful rally-goers and were able to breach security, working their way inside the Capitol building. While many of them were probably supporters of Trump, some may not have been, yet the storming of our nation’s Capitol should not have occurred.

However, let’s be clear, 99% of those attending the rally did not enter the Capitol building. A fraction of a percent of justifiably pissed off Trump supporters let their frustrations get the best of them.

Although it wasn’t right for a fringe group to storm the Capitol, the frustration had built up to a point where the disenfranchised voters of this country had had enough. What can anyone expect when for two months post-election Democrats and leftist media pundits ignored the blatant fraud that undeniably occurred while judges, justices and courts refused to consider and allow Trump’s legal team to even present its case.

To that end, it is my belief that pro-fascists in the misnamed organization known as “antifa” were there disguised as Trump supporters to deceive and cause havoc. That is in their Marxist playbook. Real Trump supporters don’t stoop to the standards of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and “antifa” and storm anything. A few broken windows and some other slight damage doesn’t compare to the billions of dollars in damage and death that BLM, “antifa” and other pro-fascist groups caused last summer all over the country, which Senator Kamala Harris publicly supported.

Joe Biden, politicians, fake journalists and other pundits should spare me and the rest of the country the condemnation with their ridiculous lectures and accusations of President Trump having incited this. He didn’t incite anything, he called for peace, and he did it quickly.

The unjustifiable hatred for our President and vitriol for those who want justice in this country is dangerous, irrational and needs to stop. Let it be known, it is the leftist media, which is most of the media today, including Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Joe Scarborough, Brian Stelter, Van Jones, Joy Reid, Chuck Todd and others that are inciting and dividing, not supporters of President Trump. The media and leftist, hateful politicians like Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler and others caused this and should be ashamed.

It is now time for those who are responsible for this mayhem to take responsibility and be accountable. It starts at the top. Right now I’m calling for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to step down from their positions in office, resign from politics altogether and allow others who are more competent and not derisive with their language to fill their seats. Although in the Democrat party it’ll be hard to find such a leader.

Things Not To Be Thankful For

Amid the tumultuous political climate the United States finds itself in, due largely to Democrats trying to steal the election and subsequently imposing their unconstitutional agenda on the rest of us, there are many things to be thankful for, to be sure, namely family, faith and our great nation which allows us freedoms and liberties, well for now anyway. However, there are plenty of things not to be thankful for. Below are just some of them.

The US Supreme Court, well, mostly just Chief Justice John Roberts and the liberal justices who seem to feel that their duty on the highest court in the land is to write law instead of interpret it and properly rule on issues that affect American citizens. For example, in 2012, after the passing of the disastrous and improperly named “Affordable Care Act,” also known as Obamacare, Republican lawmakers took it to the Supreme Court to challenge the constitutionality of the individual mandate falling under the Commerce Clause. The liberal justices and fake conservative Chief Justice Roberts, determined Obamacare to be constitutional due to the individual mandate being a tax, not a penalty. This should have negated the whole thing since the argument of the case was that the individual mandate was a penalty. Since it was ruled that it was a tax, it should have been dismissed.

Tyrannical governors. Certain governors abuse their responsibility as state leaders by dictating how the citizens of their respective states will act. From mandating wearing masks to setting curfews to shutting down schools to any number of things they want, these governors overstep the boundaries of morality and civil rights. In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has enacted not guidelines but rules for celebrating Thanksgiving. These include having no more than six guests who must social distance and wear masks at all times. He did make a provision, however, in that people are allowed to pull their masks down to take bites of food, but promptly cover their mouths while chewing. Governor Andrew Cuomo has also set strict rules for celebrating the holiday season, but thankfully the US Supreme Court ruled against his stupid mandates.

Election Fraud. This election season has been a disaster for many reasons. Just when we all thought President Trump was on his way toward being re-elected, Democrat fraudsters pulled a fast one. Attempts at election fraud were blatantly obvious in Democratic-controlled districts in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and others. Moreover, vote-counting stopped in several states on election eve but the next morning Biden somehow was ahead in votes, which is what needed to happen in order to manufacture votes for the former vice-president. Also, mail-in voting proved to be fraudulent, as anyone, whether a legal citizen or not, could simply mail in a ballot without a way it could be verified. It just gets accepted. Democrats even went to court months in advance to change the rules of the election process in order to make it easier for Democrats to cheat and steal the election. The integrity of the election has been undermined.

The dishonest and biased media. It’s no secret the media is on the side of Democrats. They are the publicity firm of the DNC. They’ve mastered the technique of getting away with lying, indoctrinating and omitting facts and stories. It’s utterly disgraceful that the institution of journalism, which was once somewhat transparent, is ominously shady. Most media outlets including CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the AP, the New York Times, the Washington Post and others are in the tank for whatever Democrat is running against a Republican. Even Fox News now has its assortment of news anchors and correspondents that lean left, although most of its commentators like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham are solidly on the right. What the mainstream media do is tell a story that is so devoid of reality, omitting facts and keeping people from the truth. And they hide under a shroud of journalistic privilege. It’s malfeasance and high time to change the laws protecting these media crooks.

Certain Social Media Platforms. Like the mainstream media, certain social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter use their platforms to keep their users from learning the truth. With social media, however, it’s more devious. They’ve used algorithms to silence the right and allow leftist messages to prevail. It’s common to see a post on Twitter by a right-leaning source with a tag that says something like “This post is in dispute due to its non-factual content.” What gives them the right to deem the content non-factual? Interesting that I never see anything from a left-leaning source with the same tag. Twitter brazenly banned the Hunter Biden laptop story and had to admit and apologize for it, post-election. A study came out recently that showed a significant percentage of Biden voters would not have voted for him had they known about that. This is the threat to our democracy social media poses. It’s also time that these biased social media platforms are punished.

Well, time to reflect on the good things in life. Happy Thanksgiving.

Five Things Not to Do at a Political Rally

Whether you’re protesting or supporting an issue, there is a right way and a wrong way to behave at a rally. So often, though, people miss the point and end up weakening their position or even hurting their cause. Here are five things not to do at a rally you attend.

Don’t engage in violence

This is just common sense and obvious to those who are sane. If you’re the type of person who is easily prone to anger and violence, you might want to take an introspective look at yourself and consider seeking help. Violence at a rally hurts the cause you’re supporting and is unfair to those on your side of an issue. Also, it only takes one video clip of someone behaving badly to hit social media and go viral before the so-called mainstream media picks up on it and spreads it worldwide. This is a tactic the left frequently employs. Don’t get caught in their trap.

Don’t call your opponents names

When someone isn’t able to have a civil conversation and discuss the facts of an issue, taking the low road and reverting to name-calling is a sure way to weaken an argument. Plus, it’s extremely childish. Let your opponent do the name-calling and you’ll be the bigger person.

Don’t bring ineffective signs

What’s the point of showing up with a sign that has a paragraph of information on an 18” x 24” footprint? What passerby is able to read small print on a poster board in two seconds as he’s driving by? It might be effective for anyone standing close enough to read it, but in that case you’re likely preaching to the choir. Instead, come up with a short message that fits your poster’s space using large enough letters and dark enough ink to be able to be read. If you have a ton of information to share, your better option is to create flyers or leaflets and hand them out.

Don’t dress up in a silly costume

If what you’re wearing is just over-the-top and goofy (e.g. dressed like Uncle Sam), you’re likely to turn people off and never win them over to your side. The line between having an unapologetic love for your country and being overly patriotic is not blurred. Sporting a shirt with the American flag is great, but do everyone a favor and don’t wear clothes that look like they were made from an American flag. Like it or not, people judge and sometimes they have a legitimate point. Who wants to be a part of a group where a few people dress in ridiculous attire and make the rest look bad? Most don’t.

Don’t use a bullhorn

As eager as you may be to emphasize your points, being in public shouting through a bullhorn just annoys people, and they aren’t going to listen to you if they’re annoyed. Sure you may have something very important you feel people need to hear, but this method is ineffective. Unless the rally is a meeting open only to members of your group, avoid using a bullhorn.

Taking part in a rally can be highly fulfilling, liberating and empowering. Carrying out what you feel is your patriotic duty is important but sometimes it comes at the cost of others ridiculing you. But have courage and take comfort in knowing you’re right in standing for what you believe in. Most of all, be smart. Don’t give ammunition to your opponent.

The Left Create Crises Then Deny They’re Crises

One of the left’s modes of operating is to create a problem, which often turns into a crisis, then deny it’s a crisis. They do this to stir up the emotions of people sensitive and susceptible to certain key issues which are sure to tug at their heart strings. This way they can appear to be the knights in shining armor and protectors of your freedoms. Let’s face it, they’re out to gin up democratic votes.

One such crisis they created is the disaster caused by illegal immigration. By ignoring the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the United States over the past several decades, much of America has been weakened with a declining social system that is meant for American citizens. Indeed, a leftist establishment has allowed this and American taxpayers are unfairly stuck with the bill.

Some Republicans, however, are not off the hook for this. They, too, share responsibility for the economic drain on society. By turning a blind eye toward the problem and, even worse, taking part in it by employing illegal immigrants, they do a huge disservice to millions of Americans who are burdened by this situation.

Appallingly, when President Donald Trump gave a much needed address from the Oval Office last week about this very issue, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), in her rebuttal speech, called it a “manufactured crisis.” That insulted every American who has suffered the tragedy of losing a loved one at the hands of an illegal alien.

Another crisis the left refuses to take credit for is the housing crisis in 2008. After years and years of finagling the home mortgage industry, in an effort to allow unqualified applicants to qualify, the housing market took a major fall. This crisis can be traced back to the 1970s when then Democratic President Jimmy Carter initiated the Community Reinvestment Act. Democratic President Bill Clinton then re-initiated it in the 1990s. Then in 2008 the market finally collapsed.

Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac were government financial institutions that enabled irresponsible lending to unqualified applicants. This was a major cause of the collapse, but House Representative Maxine Waters refused to admit it was a problem.

On September 10, 2003, at a House Financial Committee hearing, Waters said, “Mr. Chairman, we do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and in particular at Fannie Mae, under the outstanding leadership of Mr. Frank Raines.” History tells a different story, however.

Some will argue that at the time of that hearing there was no crisis, but it was the irresponsible lending practices that Democrats encouraged which ultimately led to the market crash.

Aside from the many crises the left creates, there are some issues they call crises that actually are not, such as “income inequality,” “gender inequality,” and “climate change.”

So-called income inequality and gender inequality are issues the left created to again rile up the emotions of their voters and potential voters, as well as to have something to complain about, although there is really nothing to complain about.

Income inequality is a misleading issue. Whose income is unequal and compared to whom? A CEO’s income is certainly more than a mail clerk’s income. Is that income inequality? No, a CEO has usually worked hard to earn his/her salary whereas most mail clerks are at an entry-level position.

On gender inequality, the false narrative the left drives is that women make less money than men for doing the same work. Is this really true or have the numbers been skewed and situational differences been omitted in the conversation? In other words, is the real story being told? I think not.

In many cases, a woman may not make as much as a man because she may not have climbed far enough up the ladder in order to earn the same or a comparable salary, not because the corporate world is unfair toward women. Certainly there are plenty of women who are CEOs and executives of small, medium-sized and large companies, even Fortune 500 companies, who make more than men. Most got there because they worked hard and earned their high salaries.

Moreover, it is often the case that women choose to become mothers and opt for different types of careers. This means that the time off work is keeping them from working toward promotions and earning higher salaries. Also many mothers don’t work as many hours as men because they choose to be home with their families. There are all kinds of reasons there is perceived income and gender inequality.

Climate change is a different animal. Aside from the term “climate change” being confusing as it relates to “global warming” or “global cooling” (no one is arguing that the climate changes), there has been no evidence that man has been able to disrupt and harm the environment as to create a crisis. Climate change alarmists have only cited computer models for their “evidence” that the planet is in peril. This contrived crisis has been a hoax and a scam all along.

This and just about everything the left does is about control – control of your tax dollars, control of your freedom and control of your way of life. Don’t let the left take control.

The Power of the Media and the Dependency of the Left

The media has the power to make anyone look like an idiot. They have that influence. The media can make unfounded claims about somebody, question that person’s moral character and make it sound convincing to the common person, when it’s really not convincing to anyone who takes the time to investigate. They have that power and if they target you, you can’t really defend against yourself because the media is never going to allow you to explain why you’re not an idiot.

Similarly, if the political left wants you to look like an idiot, they will since they control the media. Because so many foolish people and sheep listen to the media and take what they say as fact, it’s going to be in their minds that you’re an idiot. Which is why many good people are shy and would rather not go into politics to become trusted politicians. But we need people to fight back, charge them with being idiots and put them on the defensive.

The power of the media, Hollywood and celebrity comes into play especially in award shows and late night interviews where there are huge audiences they can preach to and cram liberal views down people’s throats. It’s prevalent throughout and across that spectrum. Most people in the media, at least the mainstream media, think the same way. They tend to be on the left politically and it shows in their “reporting.”

Actors and musical artists are the same. When they have an opportunity to express their viewpoints, they take it. It endears them to the group as a whole and immediately they’re elevated to the status of social justice warriors and media darlings.

It’s Psych 101 and the principles of Abraham Maslow, specifically the third component of his hierarchy of needs model – love and sense of belonging – also come into play. People want to belong, to be liked and belong to some sort of community. Not usually in a commune type setting but they want to have friends and associate with people who believe like them. It’s easier when they have that set of ideals in common with others around them. It makes getting through life easier.

The media need the left and the left need the media. It’s a sick relationship, really. In today’s age of social media and alternative media, however, it’s possible to combat this. It’s time sane people stand up and confront the left and the media on all the issues they champion. It’s time to turn the tables on them and expose them for the idiots they are and put them on the defensive.

Will SNL Do a Sketch About Al Franken?

Will Saturday Night Live write a sketch about Senator Al Franken (D, MN) for the sexual harassing environment he created when he posed for a picture depicting himself grabbing the breasts of a sleeping Leeann Tweeden?

Since I no longer watch SNL, both because it’s not funny and it’s unfair to anyone they don’t like, I probably won’t know unless I read about it online. I doubt they will, however. If the show was fair and balanced in their lambasting of the famous and infamous, they would at least portray Franken as the bumbling idiot on the senate floor that he is. An eloquent orator he is not.

If SNL hasn’t ventured into that territory, it must be because it’s a New York thing, or a Minnesota thing. Or a SNL alum thing. Or a raging liberal lunatic thing.
