Meatless Monday

The secret to the success of progressivism is no secret at all; it’s right there in the name. Put a frog in boiling water, and it will hop right out. But according to theory, you can boil the critter to death without it attempting to escape if you warm the water by progressive increments.

Now from theory to practice. We all know that liberals disapprove of meat, on the grounds that it is the flesh of murdered animals and makes it be too hot out (see here, here, and here). But even a country that has degenerated to the point of tolerating Obama might balk at a sudden outright ban on meat. So they eat away at our dietary freedom by increments. As usual, they start with the young, who have never known freedom, and who are at the mercy of authorities while incarcerated at government schools.

“Meatless Monday” is just what it sounds like: A day without meat. It’s a trend happening across the nation, and Dripping Springs [Texas] ISD [Independent School District] is trying it out — and cooking up some controversy.

The international campaign encourages everyone to skip eating meat one day a week. Advocates say it can improve people’s health and the health of the planet.

Naturally the moonbat social engineers who run the media tell us children like it.

It’s happening at the district’s three elementary school campuses, and it’s getting good reviews from some young critics.

“I think it’s pretty good,” said 10-year-old Avery. “They used to have a salad bar and I used to eat it every day instead of getting meat.”

In Texas, for crying out loud. Home of the longhorn.

Modern Americans grow to be significantly larger than the people of less successful societies throughout history, due largely to a diet rich in meat. This is why the munchkins Obama has been importing from the jungles of Guatemala to displace us often don’t even grow shoulder high.

Future inhabitants of North America will likely peak at under 5 feet, as Meatless Monday naturally progresses to meatless menus, and from there to a meatless society in service to the invariably pernicious liberal agenda.

It is fitting that the denizens of the socialist USSA will not stand as tall as Americans. No doubt it pleases progressives that our descendants will have a lower profile in every way.

Munchkins
Inhabitants of the future USSA. No wait, they’re too white…

Obama’s Recoveryless Recovery

Obama has finally been forced to acknowledge the ISIS crisis he helped create. He ought to relish the opportunity to take our minds off his “recovery.” A few facts pertaining to the past 62 months of Hope & Change:

• For all recoveries since World War II, cumulative job growth has averaged 12.5%. This time, job growth is just 6.2%, the worst on record. Based on this, we would need 8.19 million more jobs just to reach “average.” That’s not a real job recovery at all.

• The labor force shrank 64,000 in the most recent month, pushing the participation rate to 62.8%. The last time it was that low, Jimmy Carter was president.

• A new report says 1-in-3 workers today is a “freelance” — that means 53 million workers without a regular job to go to. This is what qualifies as “employment” in the job-barren Age of Obamanomics.

• In August, the number of hours worked — a proxy for GDP growth — and average hourly wages both rose 2.1% from last year. That only barely beats the current inflation rate of 2%. Not much growth there.

• New data from the Fed show that only the top 10% of American earners have seen their incomes rise under Obama. The rest of us have taken a pay cut.

Investors Business Daily comments that “it’s curious that someone whose policies have so clearly failed would double down on his mistakes, prolonging America’s economic misery.”

Not so curious when you consider that FDR did the same thing for years. If he hadn’t finally died, he would still be president, and the Great Depression never would have ended.

Sorry, Wrong Number

How best to explain the behavior of the Obama Regime, corruption or incompetence? As this story illustrates, the answer is the knob turned up to 11 on both:

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa’s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine. Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”

Fallon explained to Issa aides that the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs had not permitted him to release the documents to the public and he wanted to get ahead of the story “before the Majority” – meaning Issa – could share it, according to the letter.

Issa aides – who had placed the call on speakerphone – were “caught off guard by the unusual nature of the call and the odd request” and asked Fallon to “e-mail the material for evaluation.”

“At this point,” Fallon “abruptly placed the call on hold for approximately three minutes.” When Fallon returned to the call, “he was audibly shaken. He immediately stated that there was a ‘change in plans’ and that there would be no effort” by DOJ to release the material early.

Too late, Fallon.

In the letter, Issa told Holder the phone call suggests ongoing coordination between DOJ aides and Cummings’ staff to undermine oversight committee investigations.

Fallon’s “efforts to prejudice the Committee’s oversight work demands examination,” Issa wrote.

I’m sure Holder — who has already been held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with investigations into the malfeasance of the Obama Regime — will get right on it.

As for the point of Fallon asking to have certain documents leaked,

In many cases, documents provided to congressional committees by the White House and administration are preemptively leaked to the media as they are being released to Congress. Called the “document dump,” the practice frequently occurs on Friday afternoons to help mitigate the political damage from the news contained in the documents.

Fallon’s ill-fated call took place late Friday afternoon.

The current administration consists of people like Tommy Veitor and Marie Harf carrying out orders from people like Obama and Eric Holder. What else would you expect if not corruption and incompetence in equal measure?

Hordes of Illegal Aliens Are Sinking Boston Suburb

When the Obama Regime refused to say where it has been hiding the thousands of largely underage illegal aliens it has been allowing into the country, the curious set about trying to find them. A massive outbreak of respiratory illness among children in 10 states provided one clue. Other clues lead us to Massachusetts:

More than 30 Lynn [Massachusetts] Community Health Center employees and 800 patients are being tested to determine if they were exposed to tuberculosis after center doctors confirmed a case.

Center Director Lori Berry says after confirming the single positive test for tuberculosis in a male health care worker around Labor Day, center medical workers contacted and tested employees as well as patients ‘‘having sufficient exposure to warrant testing.’’

Tuberculosis, which is potentially lethal, had been essentially eradicated from the USA. But that was prior to Hope & Change.

Why would TB suddenly reemerge in a suburb of Boston? Here’s why:

“We have been aware of the unaccompanied children issue for quite a while, and we were able to absorb a lot of these children early on,” said Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. “But now it’s gotten to the point where the school system is overwhelmed, our health department is overwhelmed, the city’s budget is being sustainably altered in order of accommodate all of these admissions in the school department.”

The school system may be the first to collapse.

The amount of new foreign born student admissions has nearly doubled in the last two years. This school year alone saw more than 600 new admissions. Among those students, 248 were from Guatemala. Flanagan Kennedy says of those 248 children, 126 were illegal, undocumented minors.

“They are not literate in any language, so they do need some skills. And I assume they are enrolling in school to receive those skills,” said Catherine Latham, Lynn’s superintendent of schools. …

Latham says that because of the age of some students, reportedly between 16 and 20 years old, they were placed in the ninth grade. Twenty years old is the cut off for high school entrants.

Actually, some of the illegal alien “children” starting public school in Lynn this year are old enough to have gray in their beards. But there is not much local authorities can do about it, given the centralized nature of power in what was once known as America.

The law states Lynn schools cannot deny enrollment to anybody solely on the basis of not having paperwork.

The law also forces Lynn to pay for vaccinations for the hordes of invading welfare colonists.

Public Health Director MaryAnn O’Connor said she estimates the department has seen a 200 percent increase in vaccinations over the last couple years. O’Connor has also had to hire two additional part-time staff members and had to start a tuberculosis clinic for a huge spike in cases over the last two years.

Mayor Flanagan Kennedy sums up the situation:

“The way this is going, Lynn looks like a microcosm of the United States, in that we have been filled to capacity and we can’t take anymore without having the people who are already here suffer.”

However, the federal government under Obama is unlikely to start acting in the interests of the American people unless somehow compelled to do so.

Obama’s Legions of the Funemployed

Under Hopey Change, unemployment isn’t temporary misery, like enduring a wretched bout with the flu. It is a way of life.

On the average day, an unemployed American is more likely to be shopping — for things other than groceries and gas — than to be looking for a new job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Only 18.9 percent of Americans who were unemployed (in surveys conducted from 2009 through 2013) spent time in job search and interviewing activities on an average day, according to BLS. Yet 40.8 percent of the unemployed did some kind of shopping on the average day…

This doesn’t count people on disability and others who don’t even pretend to be looking for work.

The “unemployed” are defined as individuals who are jobless, available for work, and actively looking for a job. But the BLS data shows that looking for a job may not be the most time-consuming activity in the unemployed Americans average day.

While only 18.9 percent of the unemployed said they spent time during the previous day in job-search and interviewing activities on an average day, the survey shows that when someone was looking for a job they spent an average of only 2.48 hours of the day doing so. …

According to BLS, 96.7 percent of the unemployed spent time during the average day participating in “socializing, relaxing, and leisure” activities and spent, on average, 5.93 hours on those activities—or more than twice the number of hours they spent job searching.

All this leisure doesn’t leave much time for personal hygiene:

Only 71.9 percent of the unemployed washed, dressed and groomed themselves on the average day, according to BLS. That means that 28.1 percent of the unemployed did not wash, dress and groom themselves on the average day.

But at least the funemployed are getting lots of sleep:

On average, they dedicated 9.24 hours to that activity.

One day the EBT cards are going to run dry. Millions of people will have to adjust quickly to taking responsibility for their own lives. Or they could just riot and loot. Given the caliber of the people they vote for, which do you suppose is more likely to occur?

Queers for the Climate

Once they have laid waste to the concept of holy matrimony, politically mobilized homosexuals will proceed to other objectives. Most will involve securing privileged status so that they must be hired and cannot be fired, must be represented here there and everywhere, cannot be legally criticized, et cetera. However, the actual purpose of the militant homosexual movement is not to advance homosexuality, but to advance liberalism, just as the NAACP will not lift a finger to help blacks in any way that does not promote the leftist agenda. Consequently, Queers for the Climate should come as no surprise:

We are LGBTQ people and we’re standing up to face climate change as the single biggest threat to humanity. … Catastrophic climate change has the potential to further destabilize already stressed societies. Queer people, like many minority or marginalized communities around the world, will be especially vulnerable.

The moonbattery is too vast to get your head around. By now we are all used to barking lunatics who think that if it just grew a few orders of magnitude larger, Big Government could impose climate stasis for the first time in the history of the planet. The idea that the climate continuing to fluctuate just as it always has somehow discriminates against sexual deviants is not only insane but bizarre.

According to some militant homosexuals, global warming is primarily caused by people who are not perverts. Therefore, the LGBTQ community must step in and set things right.

Straight people have poured so much CO2 into the atmosphere that runaway global warming and a worsening climate crisis could send us all off to a very unfabulous doom. (Well, sure, some LGBT people are doing that too, but only about 10% as much as they are.)

If you can believe that global warming is a problem and is caused by CO2 despite CO2 levels rocketing upward and global temperatures remaining stagnant for at least the past 16 years, you should have no problem swallowing the lie that 10% of the population is homo-/bisexual as this person implies, even if the actual number is about 2% according to the liberal Washington Post.

Why not be open minded? Give this video a chance to convince you to embrace less freedom and a lower standard of living in the name of homosexuality and the global warming hoax:

Visualizing America’s Death by Government Bloat

The way a boa constrictor kills is, every time its prey exhales, it squeezes tighter, until inhaling is no longer possible. The way bloated government kills, every time anyone exhales or inhales, it grows larger and larger and larger until it crushes the life out of everything beneath it. Here’s one way to visualize it:

Here’s another, via RegData.org:

regData-number-of_restrictions

Here is a visualization of the effect the growth of the federal leviathan is having on our national solvency:

15-trillion-debt

That was our debt at $15 trillion, shown to scale in $100 bills. Obama now has the debt up to $17.7 trillion, and unfunded liabilities are over $116 trillion.

The bigger the government, the bigger the debt. Both will continue to grow explosively so long as liberals of either party are in control.

Either we reverse the growth of government quickly and dramatically, or America dies.

Widower Sues Because His Deceased Wife Was Too Fat to Fly

The concept of justice is degenerating into a looting spree:

A widower has settled his $6million lawsuit against three airlines who barred his late wife from planes because she was ‘too fat’ to fly.

Vilma Soltesz, who was 407lb, died at the couple’s holiday home in Hungary after she was not allowed to fly back to New York City by Delta, KLM or Lufthansa in 2012.

Her husband Janos Soltesz, 57, settled his wrongful death suit last month for an undisclosed amount.

Not being allowed onto several flights because she was too obese to be accommodated supposedly made her die. No doubt the settlement was enough to finance plenty more holidays in Hungary.

A Clue to Where Obama Hid the Illegal Alien Children

The impenetrably “transparent” Obama Regime refuses to tell us where it has been distributing the thousands of illegal alien children (of all ages) that it has allowed into the country in order to help fundamentally transform it:

Federal officials have instructed caseworkers, who identify and verify the sponsors of the illegal immigrant children, not to speak to the media under any circumstance. A caseworker spoke to KSAT in San Antonio anonymously and said caseworkers are told speaking to the media is a federal offense. As a result, the Obama Administration has yet to explain where the illegal immigrant children are being held and where they have been reunited with their families.

Considering that the hordes of welfare colonists have been conspicuously unhealthy, carrying a cornucopia of exotic diseases from their jungle homelands against which Americans have limited resistance (see here, here, and here), this could be a clue as to where Obama has been hiding them:

A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to hospitals in Missouri and possibly throughout the Midwest and beyond, officials say.

The unusually high number of hospitalizations reported now could be “just the tip of the iceberg in terms of severe cases,” said Mark Pallansch, a virologist and director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Viral Diseases.

“We’re in the middle of looking into this,” he told CNN on Sunday. “We don’t have all the answers yet.”

Ten states have contacted the CDC for assistance in investigating clusters of enterovirus — Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky.

Searchers after Obama’s hidden urchins had better look fast, because soon the disease will be distributed throughout the country:

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say. …

“Viruses don’t tend to respect borders,” ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser said. “It is only 10 states now, but it’s going to be across the country.”

Viruses aren’t the only menaces with no respect for borders.

Staggering Toward Loss, Wendy Davis Reveals She Had Abortions

Wendy Davis (a.k.a. Abortion Barbie) and her supporters may be getting increasingly desperate as she stumbles toward failure in her race for Governor of Texas.

Texas Democrat Wendy Davis launched her longshot bid for governor by filibustering her state’s tough new restrictions on abortion, and now she’s entering the last two months of the race talking about undergoing the procedure herself.

The revelation by Davis in her upcoming memoir that she ended a pregnancy in the 1990s drew sympathy from top Democrats and Republicans on Saturday, including her opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who said he grieved for her family and the loss of life.

Actually Ms. Davis had two abortions.

The Associated Press purchased an advanced copy of “Forgetting to be Afraid,” which hits bookstores Tuesday.

In it, Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, writes that she chose an abortion in 1997 after doctors told her the fetus had a severe brain abnormality and would be unlikely to survive.

She also describes terminating a 1994 ectopic pregnancy, in which an embryo implants outside the uterus. Terminating the pregnancy was considered medically necessary.

Some doubt this is going to do her campaign against Abbott any good, but you never know what might motivate Democrat voters.

Liz Chadderdon, a national Democratic strategist and native Texan, said that the revelation could help win over suburban Texas women whom Davis has aggressively courted.

Let’s hope she doesn’t have any aborted children in jars of formaldehyde. I would hate to see her brandishing them on the campaign trail.

Maybe she could brandish this doll instead.

Canadian School Bans Cheese, Milk, Eggs, and More After It Is Reported to Human Rights Tribunal

Liberalism is tyranny on behalf of aggrieved minorities, epitomized by this:

Parents of students at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School in Hamilton, Ontario, are being asked to avoid putting dairy, eggs and fish into their kids’ lunches because of one student’s severe allergies.

As parents, we’ve become accustomed to nut-free lunches, but this school is taking extra measures to accommodate seven-year-old Elodie Glover. Elodie has life-threatening anaphylactic reactions to eggs and dairy and had to leave school last year because of continued exposure to dairy in the classroom. Her mother, Lynne Glover, filed a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal claiming that the school’s failure to accommodate Elodie’s life-threatening allergies became a barrier to her education.

The school obediently mended its ways.

This year, the school administration settled on a new approach, sending home a letter to every student requesting they bring lunches that are free of tree nuts, eggs, dairy and fish. This is a recommendation for everyone in the school, but only the lunches in Elodie’s classroom will be checked each day for any offending items. Anything that could potentially cause a reaction will be removed by teachers.

It is probably only a matter of time before peanuts are outlawed because some people are allergic to them. Following this, sanctimonious bullies of the type who infest “human rights tribunals” will righteously defend the victims of ever more obscure allergies, until instead of a list of forbidden foods, we will have a short and shrinking list of foods that are not yet considered a violation of human rights.

Study Finds Cops Less Hesitant to Use Guns Against Whites Than Blacks

This will shock anyone who takes the mainstream media narrative seriously, but no one who has given thought to the use of deadly force by police in a country run by liberals. Fearing the devastating consequences of shooting persons of politically privileged pigmentation, cops are more likely to shoot whites than blacks — despite blacks being statistically far more of a threat.

Participants in an innovative Washington State University study of deadly force were more likely to feel threatened in scenarios involving black people. But when it came time to shoot, participants were biased in favor of black suspects, taking longer to pull the trigger against them than against armed white or Hispanic suspects.

The findings, published in the recent Journal of Experimental Criminology, grow out of dozens of simulations aimed at explaining the disproportionate number of ethnic and racial minorities shot by police. The studies use the most advanced technology available, as participants with laser-equipped guns react to potentially threatening scenarios displayed in full-size, high-definition video.

The lead author was assistant research professor Lois James.

James’ study is a follow-up to one in which she found active police officers, military personnel and the general public took longer to shoot black suspects than white or Hispanic suspects. Participants were also more likely to shoot unarmed white suspects than black or Hispanic ones and more likely to fail to fire at armed black suspects.

“In other words,” wrote James and her co-authors, “there was significant bias favoring blacks where decisions to shoot were concerned.”

When confronted by an armed white person, participants took an average of 1.37 seconds to fire back. Confronted by an armed black person, they took 1.61 seconds to fire and were less likely to fire in error. The 240-millisecond difference may seem small, but it’s enough to be fatal in a shooting.

Why might this be, when blacks are many times more likely than whites to be a threat to the police? Political correctness is why. As the authors of the study put it,

“there is some evidence from the field to support the proposition that an officer’s threat bias could cause him or her to tend to take more time to make decisions to shoot people whom they subconsciously perceived as more threatening because of race or ethnicity. This behavioral ‘counter-bias’ might be rooted in people’s concerns about the social and legal consequences of shooting a member of a historically oppressed [i.e., politically favored] racial or ethnic group.”

Liberals’ racial caste system has been internalized to the point that police officers hesitate to defend their own lives from blacks. No one wants to be in the shoes of Darren Wilson, the hero cop who shot a sociopathic monster that had just broken his face and was rewarded by the full weight of the federal government and establishment media coming down on his head.

Russian Bombers Practice Nuclear Attacks on USA

It looks like conservatives aren’t the only ones to notice that a country that would tolerate the “leadership” of someone like Obama is losing the will to live and may no longer be fit to defend itself:

Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.

The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.

Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United States and NATO.

Yet Obama and his pet media guffawed when Romney identified Russia as a major threat to our security.

The Tu-95 is a nuclear-capable bomber that is outfitted with six AS-15 nuclear-armed cruise missiles. The missiles have a range of over 1,800 miles.

Google Earth analysis reveals that a Tu-95 launch box located in the Labrador Sea and firing AS-15 missiles would be in range of Ottawa, New York, Washington, and Chicago, and could reach as far south as the Norfolk Naval base.

This is far from an isolated incident.

Last month, at least 16 bomber incursions by the Russians took place within the northwestern U.S. and Canadian air defense zones over a period 10 days. It was the largest number of incursions since the end of the Cold War.

Other recent incidents include two Russian Bear bombers flying within 50 miles of California in June.

Don’t worry. I’m sure Mooch will hold off Putin with another inspirational hashtag campaign while Obama plays golf or knocks Stonehenge off his bucket list.

A formerly dominant nation is a scary place to live during its self-imposed decline.

Black Girl Beaten for Acting White

Soon the prime progressive objective of a white minority USA will be achieved. It will not be a pleasant country to live in for whites — or for anyone who even reminds people of whites:

A 16-year-old high school girl in Rock Hill, S.C. told police that another high school girl taunted her on a school bus and then beat her up after she got off the bus. The assailant allegedly was angry at the victim because she was behaving “too much like a white person.”

Both the alleged attacker and the victim are black, reports The State, a Columbia, S.C. newspaper.

“Acting white” includes any sort of behavior likely to lead to success in a field other than sports, entertainment, or crime.

The girl’s punishment for acting white included “numerous injuries including a serious cut above her right eye,” according to police.

Witness Shelly Hemphill called the ambulance to take her for treatment.

Hemphill told police that the attacker tripped the victim and the punched her again and again while she was on the ground, according to The Island Packet, a Hilton Head newspaper.

In an interview with police, the victim claimed that there has been an ongoing feud between the two girls for over a year. The victim described herself as a “light-skinned black female,” according to The State.

If it’s good to be black, it must be better to be more black.

This offers an indication as to why there has been only superficial assimilation 150 years after the end of slavery.
