Via Liberal Logic 101, on a tip from TED.
By Dave Blount |
Imagine living in a house jam-packed with spoiled, selfish children.
Imagine any time you said “no” or didn’t give them exactly what they want, they would instantly ratchet their behavior into full tantrum mode.
Imagine that you were so intimidated that you started to acquiesce to all their demands.
Imagine that they somehow got control of your bank account and could take as much money as they wanted, always demanding that you work harder to make more for them.
Imagine that they then got control of all your guns and could now back up their demands with force.
But you don’t have to imagine…
“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude…”
– Alexis de Tocqueville
Well said Skyfall.
Ran across this on a WWII era poster/leaflet my grandmother had in a scrapbook.
If we lose in our struggle for freedom, if we fail in the task we must do
If we shrink from the turmoil of conflict, or quit, ere the battle is through.
If we heed not the plight of the vanquished, if we turn from the brunt of the clash
If we barter our souls in our folly, for the yoke, the goad and the lash
It is we who will envy our fallen, if we bow to the tyrant’s decree
Only our dead will find solace, and only our dead will be free.
In bondage, our loved ones will cower, abject, despised and depraved
Our faith and our tenets forbidden, our hopes and our children enslaved
Old Glory will be but a memory, as we mourn by Liberty’s bier
A once proud, resolute nation, degraded and cringing in fear
Our shrines will be broken and crumbled, and the slaver will scoff at our plea
Only our dead will be victors, and only our dead will be free.
Nice poem, True Blue.
Sad thing is I can imagine a troll sneering that is was written by a Neanderthal farmer from redneck flyover country.
HANOI JOHN, OBAMA AND FELLOW DEMOCRAP-TRAITORS SEEK TO DESTROY SECOND AMENDMENT THROUGH UN BUREACRACY
Republican senators — joined by at least one Democrat — ripped the international arms trade treaty approved Tuesday by the U.N. General Assembly, calling it a “non-starter” and vowing to oppose Senate ratification.
Britain and a small group of other treaty supporters sought a vote in the 193-member world body after Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked its adoption by consensus last week. The three countries voted “no” on Tuesday, while Russia and China, both major arms exporters, abstained. The United States, the world’s largest arms exporter, voted in favor.
Secretary of State John Kerry welcomed the approval of “a strong, effective and implementable arms trade treaty that can strengthen global security while protecting the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade.” He stressed that the treaty applies only to international trade “and reaffirms the sovereign right of any state to regulate arms within its territory.”
[NOTE: there is no soverign right of the United States to regulate arms - that is why we have the 2nd Amendment]
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the administration was “pleased” by the outcome.
[Of course, they hope to achieve through this what they can't do through Congress]
But Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott swiftly fired off a letter to Obama Tuesday urging him not to sign it. He threatened that if the treaty were eventually signed and ratified, his state would “lead the charge” to have it overturned in court “as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.”
He voiced concern that the treaty “empowers a new U.N. bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats.”
Never before has there been an international treaty regulating the global arms trade. Supporters said its adoption took far too long.
Australian Ambassador Peter Woolcott, who chaired the negotiations, said the treaty will “make an important difference by reducing human suffering and saving lives.”
Spare us the BS. It’s an international gun grab.
“MISCHEVIOUS TEENS” SPREAD MULTICULTURALISM TO AMERICAN WOMAN, RIO STYLE
A night out on the town turned into a nightmare after an American woman was gang raped for six hours and beaten aboard a public transport van while her French boyfriend was handcuffed, hit with a crowbar and forced to watch the attacks, police said.
The three suspects took turns behind the wheel, driving the van to Rio’s sister city of Niteroi where they went on a spending spree with the foreigners’ credit cards.
“They do not show any repentance,” he said. “They are quite indifferent, cold.”
DR. BEN CARSON – RUNAWAY SLAVE FROM LIBERAL’S PLANTATION FOR BLACKS
“They want to shut us up completely,” Carson said. “I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to delegitimize me.”
“And you’re attacked in many respects because of your race. Because you’re not supposed to think like this, and supposed to talk like this. A lot of white liberals just don’t like it, do they?” Levin asked.
“Well, they’re the most racist people there are,” Carson replied. “You know, they put you in a little category, a little box. You have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”
Liberals still beleive that crinimals have more rights then their victims,Liberals beleive if all guns are confiscated and melted down into park benches and manhole covers we will live in harmony with each other,Liberals think that christians opposing abortion are radical extremists but PETA wackos opposing circuses are excosiing their constitutional rights Liberals belive that our diets must be controled by a bunch of wheat germ inhaling nuts from PCRM,CSPI,PETA, and MICHEALE OBAMA,Liberals want sex education for kintergarteners,Liberals belive all problems can be solves witha trial lawyer and in the courthouse Liberals think GLOBAL WARMING is real and cuased by SUVs and Backyard BBQs
Millions Could Get Surprise Tax Bills Under ‘Obamacare’
Millions of people who take advantage of government subsidies to help buy health insurance next year could get stung by surprise tax bills. President Barack Obama’s new health care law will offer subsidies to help people buy private health insurance on state-based exchanges, if they don’t already get coverage through their employers.
Woman at Queens Bus Stop Taken to Cemetery, Raped at Knifepoint
Police are looking for the man who approached a woman waiting at a bus stop in Queens early Monday, forced her to a nearby cemetery and raped her at knifepoint.
Authorities said the suspect approached the 41-year-old victim at 91st Place and Corona Avenue in Elmhurst shortly before 5 a.m. and asked her who she was waiting for.
When she said “my husband,” he put a knife to her back and forced her to a high school parking lot about two blocks away, where he made her empty her pockets.
Police say he then forced her to walk to a cemetery a few more blocks away near 50th Avenue and 87th Street, where he demanded she crawl under a fence or he would rape her.
That is where he sexually assaulted her before fleeing eastbound down Corona Avenue, police said.
Easter Egg Hunt At Seattle Zoo Turns Violent
A statement on the Seattle Police Department blotter Monday says the “hard-boiled tale” began Sunday afternoon, “when one woman reportedly pushed a child aside as her own child was scrambling toward some brightly colored eggs.” Police say the two mothers began fighting and had to be separated three or four times. The fisticuffs left one woman with a bloody nose.
Store owner arrested for using food stamps to stock shelves
A convenience store owner in Daytona Beach, Fla.was arrested Monday for running a food stamp scam, using tax dollars to stock his shelves.
Bassam Abu Diab and his son Matthew were buying food stamp cards for 20 to 40 cents on the dollar and using them to shop at Walmart and Save-A-Lot stores for items they sold in their convenience store, police said, according the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
An undercover agent sold EBT cards to Abu Diab, which he used to purchase items at other stores and then paid the agent less than half the value of the cards. Federal, state and local officers raided the Abu Diabs’ 4M Food Mart after a 3-month investigation.
“This guy is running a business on the taxpayers back,” said Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood, according to local tv station WFTV Channel 9. “It’s a fraud. He’s unscrupulous and clearly he didn’t learn from the last time we hit the store.”
The Ongoing Global Warming Deceit
If one of today’s lib-left, global-warming climatologist freaks had been a passenger on the Titanic, he would have probably cursed that nasty iceberg as the creation of warming-deniers and then proceeded to organize a letter writing campaign to the owners of the White Star Line protesting the fact icebergs existed in the first place even as he gurgled his last breath in the frigid North Atlantic.
Of course, that brief, morbid scenario could never have occurred, chiefly because global warming didn’t exist a century ago–anymore than it does now.
The evidence that both anthropogenic and natural climate changes are cyclical and normal for Mother Earth has been out there for years and has been detailed repeatedly on this blogsite.
Nevertheless, with their financially-vested interests at stake, warmists have consistently ignored or dismissed that plethora of evidence which, if widely publicized, would hit them in their pockets, force them to get honest jobs, and once again out the prime purveyors of “scientific” climate lies, Al Gore and the United Nations as dangerous, fear-mongering, money-grabbers dedicated to sharing the earned wealth of the industrious First World with the backward, semi-civilized, envious countries of the Third World.
Interestingly, the scheme is much like President Barack Hussein Obama’s stated ambition to share America’s wealth with his undeserving constituencies.
The latest climatological revelation comes from Australia.com, from a nation where Obama doesn’t have the privilege of ruling by decree and where his mainstream media can’t easily hide climactic or any other truth.
Australia.com featured an article titled “Twenty-year Hiatus in Rising Temperatures Has Climate Scientists Puzzled” . . . (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=30774.)
The Latest from Project Veritas: HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRITES:
I am liberal–hear me whine.
“We wll continue to believe that homosexuality is genetic, yet at the same time believe that pedophilia is not genetic and can be treated/ reformed, hence why we believe child molestors shouldn’t spend a minute in prison but instead be sentenced to counseling.”
From the people that gave us the Occupy slums: “Capitalism Is A Dead Dog.” But they told us it wasn’t about any of this at all!
I love how they give their wannabe little revolutionaries “tactical briefings”.
Except the part about black people is correct…
Further Liberal Logic 101…
Don’t want an abortion, then don’t have one but Stop Bothering the Rest of Us!
Don’t want gay marriage, then don’t have one but Stop Bothering the Rest of Us!
Want to own a gun, then YOU ARE A HATE-FILLED AND IGNORANT PERSON AND WE ARE GOING TO BAN ALL GUN AND TAKE THEM AWAY FROM YOU AND THROW YOU AND JAIL!!!!!!!!!
If Liberals didn’t have double-standards, they’d have no standards AT ALL!
‘Ahh April 19th.. So MANY things have happened on that date .. The shot heard round the world in 1775. The start of the civil war.. WACO.. OKC.. and last but not least the 2010 gulf oil spill. Oh and this is also Hitler’s birthday..
we have many millions of Koreans living in the USA and how is it we are supposed to know a north from a South Korean and does this mean we might have a LOT of possible sleeper cells waiting for something like this.. people like to laugh at the Koreans missiles as irrelevant but I would not consider that to be the real problem if indeed Obama were to lob a bunker buster down some ventilation shaft on Kid Korea it is not the missiles that bother me.’
Ugh. Found some nice strawmen there, did you?
Sexuality is obviously genetic. Just is. According to… you know… science. But you don’t believe in science, so moving on.
Collectivism is not the overarching goal of liberals (despite what you endlessly try to convince yourselves)… but it is hard not to notice that the ‘Every-man-for himself’ approach is not working. Banking crisis? Deregulation having disastrous consequences? Nope… nothing like that happening these days. Greed is good, and any regulation will kill us all. Riiiight. Good work there.
Ecology is another one – science says humans affect it. Do we know how? Not fully. So, should we A) stop thinking or B) keep thinking? The right wing’s clever reply is ‘hoax!’. Because after all, as James Watt (yeah – Secretary of the Interior under His Reagan-ness) famously said, “I do not know how many future generations we can count on before the Lord returns”. So why bother thinking about downstream consequences, right? That’s not completely insane at all.
And of course, nobody is taking your damned guns. You yell constantly but all we (you know, sane people) want is universal background checks. That’s it. If you would stop acting like whiny bitches all day and get with the ‘no guns for the criminally insane’ bandwagon, we could all move on.
You know that stuff like this scares the daylights out of normal people, right? Deride all you like, but you are genuinely scary to people who think instead of repeating dogmatic nonsense.
Let me ask you this: if there were documented proof (defined however you care to define proof) that climate change is happening, would it affect you in any way? Would you just say ‘screw it’ and keep doing exactly what you are doing? Same question for any of the topics at hand. Ids there any level of evidence that will shake you out of your hate-spiral?
Yesterday, some blowfly was ranting about how great NYC is. Here’s another example:
The inevitable results of socialism begin to rear their ugly heads here in America:
U.S. sees highest poverty spike since the 1960s, leaving 50 million Americans poor
The number of Americans living in poverty has spiked to levels not seen since the mid 1960s, classing 20 per cent of the country’s children as poor.
And why are there so many poor children?
“All I wanted to do was get high,” Hammond said. “I didn’t even know any more how to eat or clean myself.”
What he marvels at the most is that he has been accepted after a 20-year absence by some of his nine children. That’s the best part, he said. “At least I know now they might not hate me.”
At least when he didn’t even clean himself perhaps he wasn’t making more babies.
What have Obama and the Democrats accomplished with their ridiculous spending spree at the expense of our children and their children?
Alarming statistics released by the U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Department of Agriculture earlier this month revealed that hunger and poverty rates in the country remain high, particularly among African-American children.
The U.S. Census Bureau determined that 25.1 percent of African-American households and 29.2 percent of households with children are food insecure.
Obama criticized for using dated, disputed gun stat to sell background checks
It’s really no surprise Obama is lying. Again.
It’s what he does.
During several speeches, Obama has said 40 percent of all gun purchases were made without a background check.
But that number is nearly two decades old and comes from a poll with a relatively tiny sample size. Gun rights groups like the National Rifle Association, as well as The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker,” are calling out the president’s stat, saying his numbers on background checks need a background check of their own.
There’s a big party at the White House – but you’re not invited!
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle will host a star-studded roster of music legends April 9 for another glitzy installment in the “In Performance at the White House” concert series, according to a White House press released issued Tuesday.
The concert comes as the White House is emphasizing cuts caused by sequestration and criticizing reporters for not paying enough attention to the hardship caused by the mandatory slowdown in the rate of spending increases. Though the White House notably canceled all visitor tours in March, ostensibly due to sequestration, the First Couple’s series of White House concerts — billed as “the nation’s highest honor for popular song” — manages to survive.
Jay Leno pegs it.
AP Replaces ‘Illegal Immigrant’ With ‘Undocumented Democrat’
“And in a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press, the largest news gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ That is out. No longer ‘illegal immigrant.’ They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat.’ That is the newest – ‘undocumented Democrat.’”
Nom du Jour, dogmatiste extrordinaire, tells us he is unafraid:
“…you are genuinely scary to people who think instead of repeating dogmatic nonsense.”
blurgh, Liberals ARE trying to take our guns. Sitting Congress-people have put forth bills that BAN weapons. Your stupidity on this and every other issue is astounding!
And for your idiotic information, climate change is happening, as it has for millennia on this planet. Where we disagree is that the current climate change (Global Warming? Global Cooling? You can’t decide) is either caused by man or that man can ‘fix’ it.
This article is hilarious and sad at the same time. Direct from the Peoples Republic of Pittsburgh:
“Pittsburgh mayoral candidate A.J. Richardson charged with DUI
Pittsburgh mayoral candidate A.J. Richardson was arrested on a DUI charge this morning after police said they found him slumped over the wheel of a car in the West End.
While he was there, Mr. Richardson “became verbally hostile stating that he was going to be mayor repeatedly and that he knew his rights and demanded to be released,” Officer Suzensky wrote. “When he was not, he made statements such as … ‘let me talk to someone who’s in charge because ya’all brothers are subservient to the white man.’ He constantly stated … ‘you should have some back bone and be a voice for the black people.'”
This clown is full of Tattoos and has less chance of being the mayor of anywhere than I do.
His sales pitch for mayor talks of personal responsibility, God and family but the booze brings out the truth. Alcohol is great truth serum.
Some people simply cannot learn from past mistakes.
The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place.
A new report released from the inspector general’s office shows that more than 24,000 homeowners who received grants of up to $30,000 to elevate their homes either misspent or pocketed the money.
“The fact of the matter is that the money they received was for a specific purpose and the specific purpose was to elevate these homes to avoid future catastrophes,” Montoya tells Power Players.
He rates the home elevation program as little more than a complete failure.
“Considering there was just under $1 billion earmarked for this particular program and there’s $700 million that wasn’t used for that, I’d give it a very low D,” he says.
ITALY SEIZES RECORD 1.7 BILLION EURO FROM SICILIAN
Italian media have dubbed Nicastri the “king of alternative energy” for his vast holdings in wind farms and photovoltaic cell companies.
Look at my comment above and tell me that liberals are not trying to confiscate guns. It might also interest you to know the one legislator in my district has been pushing legislation for the last several years to allow police to come into the homes of gun owners, without a warrant, and poke around. If that comes to pass, what do you suppose the next step would be?
Furthermore, you might want to ask Algore if his attitude about global climate change is “screw it”. Last I heard, Algore is an energy hog in the extreme. Apparently, he knows a good hoax when he starts one.
My congressional representative, Jason Chaffetz took a field trip to the US Mexico border. He took some photos while there. Guess what he found?
However, he did find steps and a handrail to help keep the illegals from falling down as they entered the US.
Check out his photos; they really are worthwhile.
Keep it simple for the libertards. High school pep rally slogans only. Facts not welcome.
Blurgh the troll:
“Sexuality is obviously genetic. Just is. According to… you know… science.”
As I pointed out in my response, liberals like you believe that homosexuality is genetic and cannot be changed, yet simultaneously believe that pedophilia isn’t genetic and is merely a disease that CAN be cured/ treated, hence why you fight tooth and nail against proposed laws desiged around imposing tougher sentences on convicted child molestors and demand that child molestors be let off with probation and counseling and not spend a minute inside a prison cell.

… but it is hard not to notice that the ‘Every-man-for himself’ approach is not working.
Just where is this “every-man-for himself effort being tried? 99 Weeks of unemployment? Is that an every-man-for himself program? Social Security? Medicare? Medicaid? WIC?
Just where exactly is this unbridled capitalism taking place?
And then there is this……..
Banking crisis? Deregulation having disastrous consequences? Nope… nothing like that happening these days. Greed is good, and any regulation will kill us all. Riiiight. Good work there.
There is Dear Leader’s most recent effort to consider…
Dear Leader is trying to get more loans to people with bad credit so they can buy houses. He is telling banks not to worry about the penalties that they might receive (including prison time) for making more risky loans.
Sure….regulations have zero effect upon banks and their lending.
And for further stupidity:
And of course, nobody is taking your damned guns. You yell constantly but all we (you know, sane people) want is universal background checks. That’s it. If you would stop acting like whiny bitches all day and get with the ‘no guns for the criminally insane’ bandwagon, we could all move on.
“Universal background checks” don’t apply to folks who buy their firearms in the parking lot of the local 7-Eleven. Criminals don’t obey laws. The criminally insane don’t buy firearms at the local Big 5.
Let me ask you this: if there were documented proof (defined however you care to define proof) that climate change is happening, would it affect you in any way?
An actual, scientific theory that is valid doesn’t require “scientists” to modify the data to get it to fit their models.
On the other hand, I’m a big supporter of nuclear power, a truly “green” energy source. Nuclear plants produce zero carbon emissions, and eliminating carbon emissions is the goal, right?
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch:

Can you spot the traitors to the Constitutions?(hint,It will be EVERYBODY in the pic)
TAXPAYERS TO FUND TRANSEXUAL FREAK’S OPERATIONS UNDER MEDICARE, ADDING TO GROWING LIST OF NEW HEALTHCARE OPTIONS UNDER OBAMACARE
For the first time since 1981, when it dubbed sex-change operations “experimental,” Medicare has opened the door to covering transexual operations, adding to the growing list of operations that would be allowed under Obamacare.
Acting on a new request, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it is starting a new analysis that could lift the spending ban for sex-change operations with a goal of making a decision two days after Christmas and on the eve of Obamacare kicking in Jan. 1.
The new title for Section 140.3 will be Surgical Treatment for Gender Identity Disorder,” it adds.
The National Center for Transgender Equality is among those pushing for the changes.
In supporting letters to CMS, one of the proponents claims that the experimental status of sex-change operations has long passed and that studies confirm it works. “These medical procedures and treatment protocols are not experimental: decades of both clinical experience and medical research show they are essential to achieving well-being for the transsexual patient,” said the letter.
A second letter called the federal policy discriminatory, and added that failure to get the operation by those who needed can cause death. “The net effect is a failure to treat a treatable disorder which in many cases leads to death. The discrimination (is) clearly un-American,” added the letter.
Isn’t that the amount John Corzine ripped off from his MF Global investors?
Maybe he got a Witness Protection deal from Obama for helping a brotha out with campaign funds and now the Italians want their cut..
corruption in New Orleans jails??? Noooooo…..
That’s blurgh in the picture making a fist.(threatening violence? – you’re so intolerant)

Play “Smoke on the Water”
The trick is SOUND confident , and no one will notice a thing .
CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D) “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” (April 2, 2013, Denver Post forum)
If you would like to hear it speak , go to the following link . I am sure you will agree how lifelike she may appear , but dont be fooled .
The key incentive for small businesses to support Obamacare was that they would be able to shop for the best deals in health care super-stores—called exchanges. The Administration has had 3 years to set up these exchanges. It has failed to do so.
The truth is it was never intended that health care would remain competitive – the whole plan was to drive everyone to government care.
Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of Medicare patients.
Oncologists say the reduced funding, which took effect for Medicare on April 1, makes it impossible to administer expensive chemotherapy drugs while staying afloat financially.
Sen. Schumer’s prison lobby ties alarm immigrant advocates
Immigration rights advocates are turning their fire on one of their own champions, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, demanding he stop taking donations from lobbyists for private prisons, which earn money by holding illegal immigrants for the U.S. government.
CO Democrat Doesn’t Understand High-Capacity Magazines Can Be Reloaded

White House encourages Democrats to rush immigration bill through Congress
Because they have to pass it to find out what’s in it…
President Obama believes that the expected bipartisan immigration reform proposal should not receive extended scrutiny by lawmakers in committee, according to his spokesman. Rubio criticized that approach. “A rush to legislate, without fully considering all views and input from all senators, would be fatal to the effort of earning the public’s confidence,” Rubio wrote to Leahy last week.
Obama senior adviser laments honest news outlets and their effect on the new
During a Playbook Breakfast event with Politico’s Mike Allen, White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer lamented the effect of the Drudge Report on the news cycle. Pfeiffer added that when he is asked about something on the Drudge Report he usually ridicules the reporter asking the question until they sheepishly back down.
Pfeiffer said that the Drudge effect can be damaging to the White House effort to lie to communicate their message, even though he insisted he was “fairly ambivalent” to what Matt Drudge puts up on his site every day.
Yeah, that’s why he’s complaining about it. Because he’s “fairly ambivalent”.
Now this next one is a hard left wing source:
One in four Americans think Obama may be the antichrist, survey says
About one in four Americans suspect that President Barack Obama might be the antichrist, more than a third believe that global warming is a hoax.
Well as we have already seen, while the planet does warm and cool significantly, naturally, the hoax was all about claims humans had significant influence over climate change.
As for Obama – well, you decide. But note, as usual, they misrepresented the poll data:
The study revealed that 13% of respondents thought Obama was “the antichrist”, while another 13% were “not sure” – and so were at least appeared to be open to the possibility that he might be. Some 73% of people were able to say outright that they did not think Obama was “the antichrist”.
And yet they did their best to suggest 1 in 4 thought he was.
Here’s where we’re headed under Obama and the Demcorats:
Britain’s debt mountain reaches £1.39TRILLION, equivalent to 90% of the entire economy, ONS reveals
The dismal state of government borrowing has already forced Chancellor George Osborne to abandon his target to see net debt, a different measure, falling as a percentage of the economy by 2015-16. But he has refused to budge on his austerity programme.
In the last five years gross debt has soared from £577billion in 2006 to £1.387trillion in 2012.
It means gross debt is equivalent to 90 per cent of the entire UK economy, well above the 60 per cent threshold set by the European Union.
In other words, under EU rules, the EU needs to kick Britain out.
Time to set lower standards for some?
The only two women to participate in the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course (IOC) failed ongoing tests to determine which infantry positions should be available to women, according to the Marine Corps Times.
Watch, they’ll cry about “discrimination”, “sexism” and “bigotry” until they’re given lower standards to meet.
Two other women had previously volunteered in September but also failed.
They’re claiming they won’t lower the standards, but we’ll see:
The Marine Corps’ commandant, Gen. Jim Amos, said he’s aware of concerns from infantrymen, and wants to ensure standards are not lowered because of the policy change. In a letter distributed to his general officers the same day the Pentagon announced the policy change, Amos said the plan that he and the other joint chiefs developed calls for a three-year research period before the top officers in the Corps and Army make recommendations to civilian leaders in 2016.

Moonbat Maya Angelou admits to crimes of discharging a firearm in city AND lying to police about it.
TIME: Your mother — she was your protector. She often carried a gun, she seemed to be very fond of guns. Did you inherit your mother’s fondness for guns?
MAYA ANGELOU: Well, I do like to have guns around, I don’t like to carry them. But I like — if somebody is going to come into my house and I have not put out the welcome mat, I want to stop them.
TIME: Have you ever fired a weapon?
ANGELOU: Of course!
TIME: At a person?
ANGELOU: I’ve fired it period, not at a person I hope!
I was in my house in North Carolina. It was fall. I heard someone walking on the leaves. And somebody actually turned the knob. So I said, “Stand four feet back because I’m going to shoot now!” Boom! Boom! The police came by and said, “Ms. Angelou, the shots came from inside the house.” I said, “Well, I don’t know how that happened.”
A Texas assistant high school principal has resigned after he was arrested Monday for allegedly having sex with an underage student in his office during the school’s prom last spring.
Of course he claims he did not. Curious what the evidence will show. It could be a false accusation – you never know.
