America, Revolution Is At Hand

A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.

If, for instance, one mentions the historical fact that nearly every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist, to include his own parents, then one is immediately mocked and dismissed as a neo-McCarthyite hack pining for the bygone days of the Red Scare. This is an evasive, ad hominem strategy employed by those who are caught, for lack of a better word, red-handed.

Why ‘Moderate Islam’ Is An Oxymoron

At a time when terrorism committed in the name of Islam is rampant, we are continuously being assured—especially by three major institutions that play a dominant role in forming the Western mindset, namely, mainstream media, academia, and government—that the sort of Islam embraced by “radicals,” “jihadis,” and so forth, has nothing to do with “real” Islam.

“True” Islam, so the narrative goes, is intrinsically free of anything “bad.” It’s the nut-jobs who hijack it for their own agenda that are to blame.

More specifically, we are told that there exists a “moderate” Islam and an “extremist” Islam—the former good and true, embraced by a Muslim majority, the latter a perverse sacrilege practiced by an exploitative minority

Is The GOP Suicidal?

Leave it to the Republican Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

While nearly every poll definitively affirms that Democrats are in deep doo-doo come November, and as leftist talking heads like Chris Matthews have already conceded a likelihood that Republicans will take the Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections, many of the GOP’s highest profile personalities obtusely refuse to take yes for an answer. They’re evidently hell-bent on disenfranchising the party’s pejoratively tagged “social issues” majority.

Stupid, stupid and stupid.

From mealy mouthed moderate establishment-types like Chris Christie, to dovish libertine libertarians like Rand Paul, it seems a majority of the GOP rock stars are scared gutless to set a single yellow-nailed pinky toe on the fevered culture war battlefield.

NYT Wants Supreme Court To Impose Its Religious Views On Hobby Lobby

The New York Times has it all wrong. The right to the free exercise of religion doesn’t belong to organizations: it belongs to individuals – and organizations like Hobby Lobby have that right because the individuals who make them up have that right.

The New York Times blithely and blindly contradicts itself in its column arguing for a flatly immoral and unconstitutional ruling from the Supreme Court against Hobby Lobby. Oral arguments will be heard tomorrow on whether Hobby Lobby’s owners, against their will, their conscience and their religious convictions, can be forced to provide abortion-causing drugs to their employees at their own expense.

Raunch: Huffington Post Says Friends Should Have Casual, Meaningless Sex

I don’t know whether to laugh, throw up or both. A reader tipped me to this Huffington Post article by D.A. Wolf headlined: “5 Benefits Of Having a Friend With Benefits.” In case you’re not hip to liberal-speak, “friends with benefits” refers to the “progressive” idea that it’s really cool for friends to use each other for casual, meaningless sex.

What could possibly go wrong?

Writes Wolf:

Some of us believe that friends with benefits can be mutually enjoyable and perfectly suited to our needs — not just when we’re very young, and not as a matter of explicitly avoiding commitment.

In fact, it seems to me that friends with benefits gets a bad rap, as if women aren’t supposed to feel desire (in general) or lust (in particular) — especially once they become mothers, or if they’re ‘of a certain age.
