Who’s up for some NARAL ‘Rocky Roe v. Wade’ ice cream?

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.

Couple who believed evil was a ‘make believe concept’ bicycled near ISIS territory — Guess what happened next

Via the Daily Wire, this is submitted without comment because it isn’t necessary, except to say there’s a lesson here that some progressives refuse to accept:

A young American couple who took a year-long bike trip around the world, believing that evil was a make-believe concept, took a fatal route in Tajikistan near the Afghan border, where alleged ISIS terrorists stabbed them to death.

Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, 29, quit their jobs last year in order to make their trip. Austin was a vegan who worked for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Geoghegan, a vegetarian who worked in the Georgetown University admissions office.

While in Morocco, Austin wrote:

You watch the news and you read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place. People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse.

I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this.

Hot new idea to achieve progressive healthcare utopia: Forcing doctors to take huge pay cuts

Ever notice lefty progressives/socialists never recommend cutting their own salaries to “help” others with their needs?

You know, listening to progressives banter about talking about their visions for socialist utopia reminds me of when I was a kid. There were always some 8-year-olds dreaming out loud: “Hey, if everything was free then nobody would really have to work for anything and we’d all be taken care of.” Progressives are the ones who never really outgrew that stage.

So anyway, how can the Left’s plan of “Medicare for all” work in the U.S.? A couple of writers for the progressive pipe dream manufacturing plant called Vox are on it:

I for one look forward to being operated on by a doctor recently disgruntled by a huge salary cut while being assisted by his staff who were hit by even steeper pay cuts while all of them are frustrated by a 9-month backlog of pissed patients on their waiting list. And I’m sure people will be lining up around the block to study their asses off for years in medical school and then work 18 hour days in residency to end up earning about as much money as a New York City bus driver.

Of course: Pro-abortion progressives condemn Tsarnaev death sentence

The “progressive” idea of “right to life” is indeed selective and twisted.

Example #1:

Example #2:

Something to behold, isn’t it? The only people in Progressive-Land who don’t deserve protections from being deprived of life are the people we know are innocent of any crimes 100 percent of the time.

Great comment on a post over at Michelle’s:

If you want to have some fun…

Run your #BlackLivesMatter poster down by your local abortion clinic.

Hopefully that catches on.

Not The Onion: Good parenting is unfair to kids with crappy parents, or something

Driving home from the dentist earlier I heard Rush mention this bit of predictable progressive hilarity that’s no doubt coming to the U.S. before too long (if it isn’t here already).

Behold:

advantage

No, seriously, that’s not from The Onion — it’s a story from ABC Radio, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

This pullquote running with the article is progressive gold:

Remember, only by ensuring that our kids are helpless dipshit wards of the state can we truly have equality for the children!

Now Michael Moore likes the 2nd Amendment? I’m confused

We all know that world class hypocrite Michael Moore hates an armed citizenry almost as much as he can’t stand it when the pizza delivery guy shows up a few minutes after the estimated time he was given, but he seems to have done a 180 here and probably doesn’t know it:

So Moore has gone from “Americans own guns because of racist fears” to “we don’t need racist cops carrying guns because citizens can protect themselves” in a couple short years.

If Moore ever has a problem and calls the police, I hope they really take their f*#king time getting there.

If you need counseling for your ‘climate change’ grief, this eco-nut has you covered

Australia rivals the U.S. in the number of agenda-driven climate change alarmist nutcases roaming the countryside, as Celeste Young, “Collaborative Research Fellow, Centre for Strategic Economic Studies” at Victoria University, demonstrates:

Celeste Young – “a sustainability/climate change professional who works as a communication and operational specialist with a particular interest in innovation and the use of creative and business processes” – asks:

How can we help people and communities work through the climate grieving process?

One of Celeste’s excellent grief-coping suggestions:

Another way to help people accept these changes is through cultural activities that support the expression of grief. In Australia, local government, community, and the arts sector have led in this area. Storytelling is often used as it provides a structured and often empowering way of expressing difficult emotions.

Readers are invited to work through the climate grieving process by telling their stories in comments. Preferably these stories will involve jets, cars, motorcycles, mining, fracking, building, land clearing and other proven grief-recovery methods.

The “grieving process” we should be facilitating is forcing these kooks to watch their government grants dry up as fast as possible.

Rolling Stone keeps its foot on the throat of credibility: Imagine a world without police

Is there anything more pitiful than La-La-Land progressivism?

rollingstone

Six reasons that could lead to a “cop free world” are listed. Not surprisingly, they totally ignored encouraging people to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights by being properly trained to defend themselves and others if necessary. People who can defend themselves do not always need to rely on the police, but Rolling Stone skipped that fairly large point.

It’s probably for the best though, because when RS tries to talk about guns they embarrass themselves horribly — and they already have enough of a problem on the credibility front.

Hamptons police blotter: Alec Baldwin not having a relaxing weekend

Reading on the “Alec Baldwin Crazy-Meter” this weekend: 9.8:

In May, Baldwin was arrested in NYC for “biking while a douchebag,” but now he’s obviously moved on to befriending the Hamptons cops:

Nice to see that Baldwin’s many previous anger issues have caused him to learn to keep his temper under control.
