Only one of my three kids is still young enough to go trick-or-treating, and time is running out on that. So I’ll be out tonight with him enjoying one of the final go-rounds on the free candy trail — possibly confiscating a candy bar here and there for “safety check” purposes.

If you have a couple minutes, this video featuring Steven Crowder teaching trick-or-treaters all about redistributionism is worth it. Hopefully this is a lesson that stick so hard that their future college profs can’t knock it out of their heads:

    Boo!

  2. backwoodsconsr on October 31st, 2012 4:53 pm

    How did he get away with that?

    "possibly confiscating a candy bar here and there for “safety check” purposes."

    And what kind of a father would you be if you didn't! Enjoy these days Mr. P.

    Crowder has a certain maniacal, genius about him that's hard to put your finger on? He's actually an important connection for younger conservatives that may not relate to people, old enough to have children of their own, a mortgage, managerial position etc.

    For all our efforts, the "tune out mode" begins the minute most of us say; "my kids..!"

    Area libs are probably getting him put on a predator list as we speak.

  5. Doug on October 31st, 2012 6:29 pm

    Thanks MW!

  6. Marshall_Will on October 31st, 2012 7:22 pm

    Yeah, I mean what kind of 'grown man' dresses up in a ridiculous outfit and tries to dupe unsuspecting and trusting children out of what is rightfully theirs?

    What's REALLY goin' on under that gorilla suit? So funny the varying factions [within] the Dimmocrat Party that made for 'synergy' 2004-2009, now threaten to implode it!

    Going forward can anyone see a way to be able to continue to "franchise out" extremists and haterz on the hard left and somehow reconcile that w/ employed, suburban moderates? It's not just 'this' election that's the problem. An across the board re-tooling will be necessary…

  7. Truesoldier__ on October 31st, 2012 7:35 pm

    I love it when liberal policies are put on display in an easy to understand way. Every time it is done you get the same reaction…WTF!!!

    It is like we always said in the military….Keep it simple, stupid.

  8. SignPainterGuy on October 31st, 2012 9:05 pm

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN everybody ! Doug and all with TorT-aged kids, enjoy, enjoy, ENJOY !

    It`s not even dark here and the little heatherns, I mean, cute little kids are out there scaring up the neighborhood.

    I like Steven`s lesson there, but he should also stress the point that it is exactly what Dim`s love to do; Redistribute YOUR wealth with the income tax system !

  9. backwoodsconsr on October 31st, 2012 9:08 pm

    My country home will probably attract very few, if any, trick or treaters. I'll have fun eating the candy if the goblins don't show up.

  10. Marshall_Will on October 31st, 2012 10:26 pm

    From Breitbart:

    UPDATE: Facebook Manager Andrew Noyes emailed the following to Breitbart News this morning: We wanted to follow up on the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) article published on Breitbart.com last night.

    "I assure you that removing the image was not an act of censorship on our part. This was an error and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
    Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi."

    Error my AZZ. I hope FB's stock get cut in HALF from the IPO price..! ( Say what..? ) Total scum. Totally defiant throughout the formation of the Co., thru the IPO only buckle like a ragdoll in the face of Teh Wun's handlers. Scum.

  11. Truesoldier__ on November 1st, 2012 10:47 am

    If it was such an error then why when the SoS Pac put it back up, along with the comments about it from Facebook, did they not only have it taken back down by Facebook, but also have their account suspended?

    As you said, error my azz.

  12. Marshall_Will on November 1st, 2012 1:10 pm

    The choices are being made clear. Twitter accidentally shuts down a Conservative's account. In the midst of heated and timely exchanges. Numerous cutesy snubs to perfectly reasonable requests by every tech co. from Google to Facebook. Even when a young life is at stake, they'll elect to play the 'Policy!' game!

    From inception I always felt Michelle launched "Twitchy" primarily for the POST election! As usual, the technology comes before the morality. This most recent incident gives us all the license we'd ever need to seek our OWN alternatives, ditch Facebook and the rest like the Prog-infested abandoned OWS encampment it is…

  13. Truesoldier__ on November 1st, 2012 1:16 pm

    Another thing that bothers me about this is what the liberals in big government may do to show just how "fair" they can be. In otherwords, I wonder if these incidents are being looked at as a win-win situation. If they shut down the Conservative accounts they silence the Conservative movement (in their eyes anyways). If Conservatives compalin enough The dems will use that as an excuse to regulate internet content in the name of "fairness" and claim they are doing it to try to "reach across the aisle".

  14. Marshall_Will on November 1st, 2012 1:42 pm

    Correct, and the first assertion is that it hasn't a thing to do w/ Navy Seals, Tea Partiers or soccer moms but IS in fact the handiwork of none other than Dick Cheney, Booosh or the nearest Evil Mega-Corp robber baron.

    So they're justified in what they didn't do. Well, at least not intentionally! But I think we're moving past all that. Doug would know better but I believe he and MM have moved -beyond- the notion we'll ever get a fair shake from left-leaning shyster operators.

    The marketing/eyeball-share potential is limitless! Look at GB's subscribers? Our in-laws have it and it's become their favorite channel! We might as well get used to paying for Conservative content. Likely fashioned after Cable. Basic, Value or Premium?

  15. SignPainterGuy on November 1st, 2012 1:56 pm

    As I understand it, Twitter was set up as a means for libs to communicate and likely FaceBook as well, but conservatives had the audacity to use them too. How DARE they !?

    I refuse to Twit (I`ve seen friends be hammered by trolls and nearly ruined by them on Twitter), and use FB ONLY because numerous websites use FB commenting format.

    Yeah, you can bet the left is using every means possible to sneak in the Fairness Doctrine or its Son, just like F&F was always for none other than to gain support for more restrictive gun control laws.

  16. Truesoldier__ on November 1st, 2012 2:05 pm

    You are correct. I saw yesterday that the Tea Party is launching their own news network.

  17. SignPainterGuy on November 1st, 2012 2:23 pm

    Fascinating that it appears on Politico !

  18. Marshall_Will on November 1st, 2012 3:18 pm

    Already loaded in my Faves!

    Had no idea Twit was designed for OWS/Che` use [primarily]! Funny thing is, younger people are so financially bludgeoned by the ObamaBataan Death March Economy, they're dropping cell phones and internet access left & right. $5 gas saw to that!

    MM's newsletter Hate Mail o' The Day is typically a 30-40+ white male and that echo chamber is already SATURATED w/ losers too lazy to show up for an OWS rally. What with it 'raining' and all?

  19. SignPainterGuy on November 1st, 2012 4:07 pm

    I`m surprised that young folk don`t give up their cars before their smart phones.

    I saw a headline saying that phone addicts having a tuff time after Sandy – I assume that`s in NYC and elsewhere that there are still power outages !

    they look so happy, I have never been so
    sadly

  22. O.S.I. on June 16th, 2017 5:15 pm

    Halloween is the only original Christian holiday. All others are former pagan celebrations.

  23. O.S.I. on June 16th, 2017 5:16 pm

    The problem with America are the weasel conservative that are destroying this land.

  24. O.S.I. on June 16th, 2017 5:19 pm

    I like Easter better or what should be called Zombie Jesus day! He is back from the dead and wants to suck your brains out. That would go a long way explaining Christians, and Republicans.

  25. O.S.I. on June 16th, 2017 5:23 pm

    And then you have a really crazy nut job, stalking, Cyber bullying, troll, reply monkey like roger with 241,000 plus spams on Intense debate.

  26. O.S.I. on June 16th, 2017 5:24 pm

    They are the Borg! They have been Assimilated.

  27. Roger on June 16th, 2017 10:21 pm

    I see that once again you contribute nothing but random angry rants showing you have more emotions angst than common sense.

  28. Roger on June 16th, 2017 10:22 pm

    This may be difficult for you, but the Borg are fictional. We have progressive liberals that are assimilating our youth in public education now, and you don't seem to have a problem with it.

    Or were you admiring the Borg and their talking points?

  29. Roger on June 16th, 2017 10:23 pm

    Why don't you celebrate 'mud puddle day' since you pretend you evolved in a puddle of primordial ooze?

    At least Christians have goals that are elevating, instead of just looking to the mud for values and goals.

  30. Roger on June 16th, 2017 10:24 pm

    Nope, the problem is people such as yourself that attack anyone that holds Constitutional values.

    For someone that served in the Coast Guard I'm surprised. Did you hate the country then and just serve so you could spend time with so many men on board for weeks at a time?

  31. Roger on June 16th, 2017 10:25 pm

    You don't know enough to discuss it rationally.

    The night that pagans felt the dead were closest to the world of the living isn't in the Bible or founded on Christian values.

  32. Alinsky Hero USA on June 17th, 2017 1:01 pm

    OSI ,Roger would like for you to give him more attention a nurturing.

    But don't draw any cock spaceships for him. It reminds him of his sweet Jordon.

  33. he likes 'em young on June 17th, 2017 3:26 pm

    all this chit chat about the coast guard and being with 'so many men' has roger very excited but at least those men would all be over 18 unlike the young boys roger prefers

  34. Yuck! on June 18th, 2017 3:30 am

    Tomorrow has it that Roger tries to "dupe" children but those records are sealed.

  35. Roger on June 18th, 2017 1:35 pm

    Joe, why did you use a guest profile for that comment?

    You are the one that keeps bringing up same sex activities.
    And we know what your wish list includes.

    Happy father's day Roger. I hope you aren't role playing today.

  39. Alinsky Hero USA on June 19th, 2017 1:21 pm

    Looks like Roger is libeling Joe Allen from Chicago. That' how Roger lost the case last time.dissmissed with prejudice.

  40. O.S.I. on June 19th, 2017 3:26 pm

    shoo fly!

  41. O.S.I. on June 19th, 2017 3:28 pm

    Roger has been libeling me for so long my counter suit will destroy him for good.

    Thanks shoo fly !

  43. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:34 pm

    You can't keep up with anything, not even the fake spams now.

    Just crawl away.

  44. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:34 pm

    It's just Joe.

    He's a deviant sexual stalker that has a bad wish list. He needs professional help.

  46. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:35 pm

    Still can't focus well? Is it the anger or are you drinking or something?

  47. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:35 pm

  50. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:36 pm

    Still have nothing?

    how nice

  51. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:36 pm

    You really do have nothing.
    You have lost.

  52. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:36 pm

    I'm waiting, do you want me to email my attorney's address to you?

  55. jeepwonder on June 19th, 2017 4:37 pm

    I'm waiting for that counter suit. When can I expect it?

  56. Roger on June 19th, 2017 4:50 pm

    What libel?

    He would have to prove what I said met that standard, I could show most of it applied to a marxist and he would be proud of his positions probably.

    Joe, you need to get professional help. Also, you never claimed to have a counter suit so you're more lame than Shawn is. Of course he won't have a leg to stand on, but I'll let my attorney deal with it.

  57. Alinsky Hero USA on June 19th, 2017 4:58 pm

    Casey should be made aware that Roger is libeling Joe Allen from Chicago.

    I'm sure Joe Allen from Chicago already warned Casey to have his client stop making claims about him on the internet.That is why Casey had to drop the last litigation.

    Joe may want to join your counter suit.

  58. guest on June 19th, 2017 11:12 pm

    I hear you'd like to suck Shawn's middle leg and Joe's too. Stick with your goats, freak!!!

    That's a letter?

  61. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:13 am

    Still have nothing to contribute?

    how nice

  62. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:13 am

    Joe, you really should stick to hiding behind chinese servers.

  63. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:14 am

    Joe, you just can't stop fantasizing can you?

    It's a fixation and you need professional help.
    You're a deviant sexual stalker.

  64. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:14 am

    Still the deviant sexual stalker Joe?

  65. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:16 am

    Still broadcasting you are a nothing?

    Why? Do you like humiliating yourself that much?

  66. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:16 am

    You really should just crawl away now.

    how nice

  67. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:17 am

    You know, if I had told you a year ago that you would be reduced to doing questions marks and cut and paste for 800 times, you'd have said I was lying.

    But, here you are.

    how nice

  68. glennbeck on June 20th, 2017 2:06 am

    and you are still an idiot for answering question marks.

  69. Roger on June 20th, 2017 11:29 am

    You are an idiot for defending the lame and moronic question mark as a reply and he's an idiot for using it.

  70. ??? on June 20th, 2017 12:29 pm

    What are "questions marks"?

  71. gross on June 20th, 2017 12:30 pm

    How did Roger get away with that? I'm not sure because he had those records sealed.

  72. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:36 pm

    How do you pretend to get away with lying?
    I don't have any criminal records, and wouldn't need to have any sealed.

    Joe, you're just a deviant sexual stalker and a coward.
    You need professional help.

  73. Roger on June 20th, 2017 12:37 pm

    You should focus on a more important question.

    What is a valid reply?

  74. O.S.I. on June 20th, 2017 12:55 pm

    ??

  75. O.S.I. on June 20th, 2017 12:58 pm
