School Shooting

Posted on Updated on

I almost hate to rehash the whold school shooting debate but. . .

I will start this off by saying that I do not own a gun but I do not buy into the whole ban gun thing that so many liberals are emotionally buying into.   I believe that what we have is a problem with a lack of morality and yes I do blame the whole thing of the liberalization of our country.   The whole “sex, drugs and rock n roll” thing if taking it’s toll on our country.   Too many people are screaming and protesting the latest craze without actually putting any thought into it.

When I grew up we could go out and buy guns and ammo freely without any waiting period or whatever.   No gun laws to speak of and yes I had several guns growing up a .22 and a shotgun.   And guess what?   We did not have any school shootings we did not go out and kill people.

There has always been a few violent people and many of them were able to surpress that urge with help from Religion, Church and the Bible.  But our society has rejected religion and the Bible and it is no longer used as our moral compass.

And as usual this is turning into another violent person almost being excused for his acts because he may have been bullied while in school.  Again there have always been bullys and there always were.  But in times gone by the people being bullied just went on with their lives after a bit of cussing and complaining.  As a person who has been overweight all his life I know a thing or two about this but I shook it off and have had a wonderful life;  perhaps church played a role in this?

Until we start addressing the lack of morality in the country this kind of violent stuff will not only keep happening it will escalate.

It is nice that Kim Jong Un has stopped testing nukes and missles and stopped murdering people to turn into some nice little guy who just wants to be liked.

Does anyone but me think that this happened way to quick and seamlessly?

Here I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. Please President Trump – do not be lulled into a false sense of security.

If You Want To Stop Liberal Bullying, Start By Telling Them To Buzz Off

 Well, not “buzz.”

    But you get the point. We are experiencing an epidemic of liberals trying to push us around. And, since life is really just high school, except with older and stupider people, schoolyard rules apply. So when someone tries to bully, you smack him. Hard. Right in the Pelosi.

    That’s what we need to do the liberals when they form their creepy little social media lynch mobs. This nonsense about cowering and apologizing and begging for forgiveness from these petty tyrants needs to stop. Besides being undignified and shameful, submission just encourages them.

    Take whoever Shania Twain is. I understand she was once a country singer. Apparently, her image is calculated to project some sort of inoffensive, non-threatening Girl Power! vibe. You know, the kind of tedious “You go girl!” empowerment affirmation that temporarily eases the pain of its adherents’ lonely, cat-filled lives.

    We don’t need a man when we have you, Mr. Whiskers!

    Anyway, Shania recently manifested the awesome power of girlhood when liberals complained that she dared to say something that offended them – she said she would have voted for Trump if she wasn’t the one foreigner in America who didn’t vote. Basically, she said she was like 43% of Americans, and that’s far too extreme to be tolerated by the Twitterstapo. She surrendered and submitted to their wrath, groveling for forgiveness. Sure, she’s Canadian, but that’s really no excuse.

    So, they claimed her flowing brunette scalp. They cowed her and moved on to other conquests. But a whole bunch of her fans now think she’s a girl wimp. She alienated the people who actually liked her music to please a bunch of hipster doofuses and trendy internet scribblers who wouldn’t listen to her records if they were recorded on the last vinyl on Earth.

    Then contrast that capitulation with the righteous resistance of someone named Kanye West, who is no relation to Adam West though that would be the coolest thing ever. Now, I’m not familiar with him or his oeuvre because I essentially stopped listening to new music in 1987 when The Replacements released their last really great album, Pleased to Meet Me. But Kanye West, seems to be very, very popular with the kids. So he has some cultural heat, and when he decided to dissent, the Fahrenheit 451 firepeople knew they had to light that fire but quick.

    Kanye said in a tweet that he approved of Candace Owens, and the enragening commenced. Now, I met Candace at CPAC, and she’s an an impressive lady who doesn’t take a lot of Schiff. As a woman and a black conservative, she is targeted for all sorts of grief, but she fights back by fearlessly asserting the Founders’ vision of personal freedom and personal responsibility as an antidote to the poison of the Democrat Party. Naturally, this makes her hated by all the people you would be proud to be hated by.

    Well, not “buzz.”

    That’s how we all need to do it in our everyday lives. So many times, people are getting called racist or sexist or some other stupid slander and it’s all baloney, but for whatever reason some people feel compelled to apologize and grovel when they say something other people don’t like.

    Never apologize to liberals. It’s a sign of weakness.

    Liberals wield shame as cultural mace to pummel others into conformity. Most people are weak, and most people will conform. This goes triple for liberals – SJWs are happy to eat their own if there are no Normals around to feed on. Liberals are human sheep when they aren’t going full lemming. Never go full lemming.

    It’s about time that our default response change from “I’m sorry I gave offense” to “You’re an idiot for being offended and get out of my face before I slug you.”

    We need more Kanyes and fewer Shanias, more people willing to stand up to the slobbering pack of Twitter social justice geebos who have achieved nothing in life except to humiliate a few weak-hearted pushovers. These are bad people, and you empower them when you treat them like anything other than the garbage people they are.

    Don’t like what I say? Don’t like what I think? Don’t like what I write? Don’t like what I tweet? Good. The only thing I’m sorry about is that I haven’t said more things you don’t like. So, buzz off.

KNEELING AND THE GREAT RACIAL DIVIDE

Posted on Updated on

This is taken from the Bacon Bits Show Website:  http://baconbitsshow.com/2018/01/02/kneeling-great-racial-divide/


With 2017 over it’s now time for me to address one of the issues that riled me up the most in 2017: The NFL Kneelers and their various supporters.

Throughout the season some players knelt during the National Anthem, others just stood locked arm-in-arm and, on at least once occasion, a team simply refused to leave the locker room. This all started last year when Colin Kaepernick and his radical leftist girlfriend decided to jump on the “police are murdering black people” bandwagon. You may recall he wore socks depicting police officers as pigs, made his admiration for murderous criminal Che Geuverra known and ultimately said he refused to respect the flag of a country that is rife with social injustice going so far as to make the reckless and false claim that the “streets were lined with bodies” who were victims of police shootings.

This year as the kneeling continued, without Kaepernick who is now out of the league, President Trump threw gas on the fire by declaring that NFL teams should fine and/or release players who did not stand for the anthem. In response more players kneeled the following weekend and in unison, gee almost as if someone had given them talking points, they declared Trump to be the Great Divider. All they wanted, they declared, was to shine a spotlight on an issue that doesn’t even exist; namely the murderous rampage they believed police to be on where the primary victims were young black men. They wanted to bring people together not tear communities asunder like Trump was doing. They would unite people where Trump would divide them!

While the notion that these brain-dead players honestly thought that by disrespecting the flag and annoying half the country they would “bring people together” may seem laughable to normal people their cause caught the attention of the usual suspects in Hollywood. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny Tweeted a picture of themselves kneeling in solidarity, for example, and on and on it went.

One of the major problems with the movement is this: If NFL players really wanted to see people off all stripes and colors united, even if for a moment, all they had to do was turn around. Turn around and take a good hard look into the stands, into the faces of the people shelling out a good chunk of their hard-earned money to applaud them each Sunday.

I have been to a dozen or more NFL games in my life and one thing has always been true of them: In the stands there are no skin colors. Nobody’s religion matters, no ones ethnicity matters, sex, disability, none of it matters outside of the team colors you’re all wearing. You sit next to people you’ve never met and instantly you’re part of a temporary community that accepts everyone.

Go to a game and look around. I’ve seen it at these games. Black guys, white guys, Asians, and handicapped people. All of them cheering in one voice, high-fiving each other and “Can I get you a beer while I am heading that way” to one another. Totally united and enjoying each others company. The sports itself was the great uniter. White people wearing the jerseys with the names of black players on the back and vice versa, nobody caring what color anyone was.

Even those fans who were rooting for the invading team were, for the most part, members of this temporary community albeit while being subjected to plenty of ribbing and teasing.

I’ve sat in those stands, on one occasion next to black guys I have never met who did not care about our skin color and both of whom literally hugged me when victory appeared imminent. If you’ve been to an NFL game you have seen what I have, probably experienced what I have, even if you didn’t make note of it. Diversity and harmony like the radical left always says the WANT to see but then ignore when it happens.

And what was it that took these diverse, united people and drove a wedge between them? Kneeling. The players who called Trump the Great Divider had taken a fan base that has been made up of all the different kinds of people that you could possibly imagine, a fan base that was united for decades, and tore them apart. Suddenly it was no longer one temporary community of diverse people every Sunday. It was two. Suddenly it wasn’t everyone wearing a Bears jersey in the stadium became part of an instant family, it was Bears fans who support kneeling on one side and those who don’t on the other. It was a clear divide on the issue among racial lines, lines that didn’t exist among those fans two short years ago.

Colin Kaepernick and his sycophants did not achieve some sort of racial harmony, they took the fragile and budding racial harmony that did exist, if only for 3 hours a week, and destroyed it. Instead of building on the color-blind comradery that existed in each stadium they burned it down.

And it didn’t have to happen that way. To see some of the racial harmony they wanted all they had to do was turn around.

And now even bigger and more powerful celebrities want to champion the cause of a man who is actively destroying the league that made him a millionaire. The league that gave him the platform from which he shouted “racists” at his legions of fans.

And the dividing didn’t stop in the stands. The wedge they drove, whether they admit it publicly or not, extended to the locker rooms. Locker room that had previously, much like the stands, been color-free zones. Everyone in a locker room, black white or other, is part of a team. A family. The players often refer to each other as “brothers” in regards to their teammates. And yet look at any picture of the kneeling players and see the divide. Some standing, some kneeling. A wedge. Discord primarily along racial lines where previously there was harmony. When the Pittsburgh Steelers decided as a team to not even take the field for the National Anthem one player, Alejandro Villanueva, came out and paid his respects. For a moment he had the top selling jersey in the NFL but then, as often happens, social justice warriors shamed him into an apology with some teammates piling on and being “disappointed” that he chose to break ranks.

Just look at the polls to witness the divide. A September poll by CNN found 59% of whites thought kneeling in protest was wrong while 84% of blacks said it was the right thing to do. Overall most people felt kneeling was wrong and while the NFL tried to ride out the storm instead of dealing with this issue fans made their displeasure known with Twitter accounts popping up to show pictures of half-empty stadiums.

At the end of the day the kneelers who accused Trump of dividing the country were the ones sowing the seeds of discord all along. It was they who took a united and diverse group of fans, seeking to escape political messages and daily stresses for a lousy 3 hours on Sunday, and divided them once again into racial categories. These protests did far more harm than good and may have dealt an irreparable blow to the NFL’s reputation but even worse, they may have set race relations back even farther.

Television Shows

Posted on Updated on

There are a number of TV shows my wife and I watch on a regular basis and then there are some that I watch on my own.    We have a regular list of shows each night that we watch as we are eating dinner;   but my wife prefers to record them and then fast forward through the commercials – as for me I prefer not to be bothered so I just put on a show and watch it in real time.

My wife tends to like the sit coms and I like police shows.

The Big Bang Theory is still the funniest show going.  But there are a few others that I get a good laugh out of:  Man With A Plan, Mom, Life In Pieces, Fresh Off The Boat.  The rest of the comedies are hit and miss.

On Monday nights I love watching “Scorpion” – it is a great show and besides the weekly case they work on there is a big of humor thrown in.   This is one of those shows that I look forward to.

Of course I still watch faithfully NCIS (all of them), Criminal Minds.   I don’t know exactly why but all of these shows seem to have found a new life and I guess I attribute that to great writing.

And lets not forget the BBC shows we watch and enjoy.   Doc Martin is a must watch and so is As Time Goes By – these are excellent shows and there is a new season of Doc Martin on the horizen.  I also watch shows like Death In Paradise,  Murdoch Mysteries (the Artful Detective) and the Doctor Blake Mysteries.

One thing I don’t watch on TV anymore is the news.  We do watch some news (infrequently) on FOX but not too often and usually if there isn’t anything on that interests me.

The new shows from this past season such as SWAT and SEAL Team are ok but they are not shows I look forward to watch every week.    I watch some of their episodes but it all depends on my mood I guess.
