This Shit Needs To Stop

I’m getting quite tired of the #NoDAPL protestors coming to this state and causing trouble. If this administration wasn’t headed by such a limp dicked piece of shit it wouldn’t have gotten this far out of control. Many of the protestors would be awaiting trial in Federal Court and likely a lengthy stay courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Destroying property, polluting the environment, starting fires, blocking railroad tracks and highways, throwing rocks, burning logs and molotov cocktails, and shooting at officers is in no way ‘peaceful’. Most of those arrested have been out-of-state agitators. They have been egged on by the liberal activists Mark Ruffalo, Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon, Kristen Wiig and Jesse Jackson, as well as former Presidential Candidate Jill Stein. It has dragged on far too long because of the direct actions of President Obama. This is unacceptable interference.

This is why liberals can’t have nice things

Post election meltdown by liberals is quite frankly rather funny, but also a little terrifying. When offered a solution to their problems, they immediately show their complete lack of discipline. This is why modern liberals can’t have nice things or be trusted to uphold rights.

The Modern Liberal Mentality

I’ve been unfriended on FaceBook by some old real life friends. That doesn’t bother me much, but their mentality does. These people are often quite liberal in their mindset. Not as in the classical liberal, but the modern progressive liberal. These people are often educated…well, they’ve had schooling. I’m not sure they can truly be considered educated. As Nobel Laureate Peter Medawar said, people “…have been educated far beyond their capacity to undertake analytic thought.” I have no doubt that these people are well meaning, but as the saying goes the road to hell is paved with good intentions. “Classical liberalism is a political ideology that values the freedom of individuals — including the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and markets — as well as limited government.” But the modern liberal is progressive and tends to reject these concepts and advocates for ever greater control by the ‘right’ people, which is often the government.

Somehow the thought that they are acting in a patronizing manner to these people doesn’t occur to them. The fact that, if their wishes are taken to their logical conclusions, they are genocidal completely escapes them. Continue reading “The Modern Liberal Mentality”

C’mon Man!

bison_2One of the things I’d love to see come Monday Night Football would be one of the commentators use the C’mon Man! segment about FBS teams scheduling NDSU. They will come into your house, push you around, beat you up, take your pride, take your money and walk out with a win.

Whenever an FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) team puts an FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) team on the schedule the expectation is an easy tuneup game to get some players some experience and confidence brewing. You can’t do that with NDSU! It’s been pointed out before by different sites and once again today that FBS teams need to quit scheduling NDSU. I think the Big 10 gets it, as they’ve sent out a directive that their teams aren’t to schedule any new FCS games. And no FBS team has come calling play the Bison until 2020 (Oregon).

The thing about NDSU is they aren’t your typical FCS team. They aren’t even your typical elite FCS team. You should basically just consider them a Power 5 program that’s been limited to 63 scholarships. They have won 5 straight FCS National Championships (and appear to be on their way to #6 if they keep playing like this) and their last six FBS contests. There are a couple of cupcakes in there (Minnesota wasn’t that good, Kansas was pretty terrible, and Iowa State made Wentz, Crockett and Emanuel look pretty good), but they also beat a Kansas State team that was the defending Big 12 Champion and went on to win the 2013 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Now they beat an Iowa team that is the defending Big 10 West Champion and ranked in the top 15 (#11 Coaches poll and #13 in the AP Poll). Those are a couple of good teams.

Darkship Thieves

My review of Sarah Hoyt’s Darkship Thieves

cover

 

Athena Hera Sinistra never wanted to go to space. Never wanted see the eerie glow of the Powerpods. Never wanted to visit Circum Terra. Never had any interest in finding out the truth about the DarkShips. You always get what you don’t ask for. Which must have been why she woke up in the dark of shipnight, within the greater night of space in her father’s space cruiser, knowing that there was a stranger in her room. In a short time, after taking out the stranger—who turned out to be one of her father’s bodyguards up to no good, she was hurtling away from the ship in a lifeboat to get help. But what she got instead would be the adventure of a lifetime—if she managed to survive. . . .

The Long Tomorrow

My review of Leigh Brackett’s The Long Tomorrow

cover

Two generations after destruction rained down upon America’s cities, the population is scattered into small towns. Cities are forbidden by law, as is scientific research.

Rumors abound of a secret place known as “Bartorstown”, where science is untrammelled by interference or hatred. A youth named Len Colter, developing an unhealthy thirst for knowledge exacerbated by the discovery of a forbidden radio, sets out on a long road. During this journey, he will change his mind many times before determining the correct direction for himself, and the benighted America in which he lives.

She broke the law, but wasn’t charged

Some yammerwit asked me what law Hillary broke by placing classified State Department material on her private and unsecured server. 18 U.S. Code s. 793 – Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information reads at paragraph (f): “Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch,…
