The tendency of certain liberal wannabe fascists over what you do and don’t “need” continues, this time from a completely clueless Connecticut state senator:
Either she’s getting a commission on all the ammunition sales that kind of talk from a politician results in, or she’s a total idiot. I know which option my money is on.
Gilchrest is obviously decided that I only need a certain amount of bullets or shotgun shells to defend my home — and that’s provided I don’t do what any responsible gun owner does, and that is go out and practice shooting so you actually know what the f**k you’re doing, unlike progressive politicians. And have you noticed that the Democrats’ concern about how thing unfairly “impact the poor” doesn’t extend to their right to defend themselves, not to mention their 2nd Amendment rights?
Law of Unintended Consequences yet again confirmed
Is there anything progressive politicians ever do that does not validate the Law of Unintended Consequences? People’s Exhibit #9,402:
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to have junkies toss their used syringes into special receptacles has failed to clean up drug-infested parks, and the bins are serving more as suggestion boxes — spreading the message that the city is OK with them shooting up there.
Official statistics obtained by The Post from the first six months of de Blasio’s controversial program show that parks in the Bronx are still littered with dangerous hypodermic needles, with nearly 60,000 found on the ground compared with just 7,000 in Hizzoner’s 44 locked containers.
Even worse, the green metal bins are seen as a welcome mat for druggies to take over the parks, said one addict who openly injected himself in St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx Thursday morning with what he said was a speedball of heroin and cocaine.
“They’re giving permission with that box,” said Javier Martinez, 32.
The best way to get de Blasio to figure out how to keep parks free of discarded syringes would be to challenge him to come up with a way to make the problem worse, then he might inadvertently come up with something that accomplished the opposite.
Michael Moore has obviously volunteered to lead a Ruth Bader Ginsburg-worshipping cult:
If lefties keep up this level of worship Barack Obama’s going to start getting super jealous of RBG.
Same old socialist song and dance
Anybody who actually chooses to pay attention knows that all the “climate change” doom and gloom talk is all a giant wealth grab (even the French are starting to figure it out). And where there’s a wealth grab, you’ll find social justice warriors clinging to the movement like lampreys on a shark. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even been sworn into Congress yet and she’s already figured that out:
How switching to indeterminate energy sources that would in the process cause the price of the only available existing energy sources to skyrocket would “help” the poor is anybody’s guess.
Here’s another national treasure who appeared with Bernie Sanders saying to act on “climate change” is to take action in favor of “gender equality”:
Here’s the capper: Leaders of the annual “fleece the masses” meeting disguised as a “Climate Conference” said this is what’s going to be required to save humanity:
In a rare intervention, presidents of previous UN climate summits issued a joint statement as the talks got under way, calling on states to take “decisive action… to tackle these urgent threats”.
“The impacts of climate change are increasingly hard to ignore,” said the statement, a copy of which was obtained by AFP. “We require deep transformations of our economies and societies.”
All this alarmism is a giant “transfer the wealth” cult, and anybody who doesn’t acknowledge that is an easy mark or in on the sham.
When real life collides with The Simpsons
The “scientific” left in this country are determined to do something about a problem they say threatens the whole of humanity, even if they have to accidentally kill everybody in the process:
That’s just how I like my “settled science” to sound — with alleged solutions that start with “it sounds crazy, but…”
Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.
The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.
Nothing better than an “as-yet unproven way to tackle” a problem that is as-yet unproven. But at least they’re admitting that it’s the sun that is in fact warming the world.
When real life collides with The Simpsons:
We’ve now reached the point in time that future anthropologists will probably dub the “WTF Epoch” as even political correctness is now not politically correct enough. Case in point:
Leaders at a college in Michigan decided to cancel its production of “The Vagina Monologues” because it’s discriminatory, given “not all women have vaginas.”
The women’s resource center at Eastern Michigan University put the kibosh on the famous production since it caters only to women who have the physical anatomy that accompanies the female sex, according to The Ann Arbor News.
The decision came after the resource center conducted a survey, asking respondents about “The Vagina Monologues.” Those opposed to the drama said they were concerned about the fact that the production excludes some women, namely those who don’t have vaginas.
Like a dying star, political correctness expanded and became super bright and is now actually collapsing into itself. Someday it’s possible that we’ll learn the extinction of PC was caused by PC itself.
Brett Kavanaugh’s first day at the Supreme Court saw a bunch of women who are completely free to protest and make fools of themselves all they want pretending to be horribly oppressed by a new Supreme Court justice they don’t like who was nominated by a president they hate:
Yep, it’s the same shtick that didn’t stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the first place, but maybe it’ll work this time! This should henceforth be referred to as The Handmaid’s Fail.
That sad cosplay spectacle follows days of lefties embarrassing themselves, their parents and all their ancestors:
Who’s got a weird hat, loud voice, lots of free time and hates Trump & Kavanaugh? THIS guy:
“This is what democracy looks like!”
The U.S. is a Republic, not a democracy, but for the sake of argument, do they know what else democracy looks like?
To sum up the week liberals had…
And then some.
Did you know that nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the 2016 election season? Shameless Dem Sen. Angus King drew that comparison on Tuesday during comments that amazingly didn’t culminate in a bolt of lightning from on high striking him down for the nauseating level of sheer gall:
Sen. Angus King on Tuesday compared Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
Maine state Sen. Eric Brakey, the Republican nominee seeking Mr. King’s seat, posted an edited video Tuesday of the independent giving a speech commemorating Sept. 11 at a Lewiston fire station.
“They used airplanes into towers,” Mr. King said of the 9/11 hijackers. “Now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg, Russia, to attack.
“It’s an attack that continues and it’s the same kind of attack today that occurred in 2001,” he added.
As Alec Baldwin’s character Blake said in Glengarry Glen Ross, “Never. Stop. Closing!”
Douchebag of the week.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the President of Iran between 2005 and 2013, and he’s apparently a big supporter of Nike’s superhero and godfather of the “take a knee” (and “pig cop” socks) movement Colin Kaepernick:
Hahahaha! Maybe Ahmadinejad can fill us in about how the government deals with protesters in his home country.
But hey, if Mahmoud thinks it’s so brave and Kaepernick thinks the U.S. is so unjust, maybe the former Niners QB should go to Tehran and take a knee when the Iranian anthem is playing to see how that works out for him.
There are four flavors for sale, and unfortunately one of them isn’t “Totally Deminted”:
I’m half surprised they didn’t have a flavor with the word crunchy or chunky in the title, because they’re that self-unaware.
They were going to guarantee that the ice cream would be at least as cold as their hearts before discovering their freezers couldn’t push the temp down that far.
