Chicago robberies drop 20% after concealed carry permits are issued — Great news! 20% less robbery victims is something to celebrate, as is the additional evidence that following the Constitution leads to less crime. Now if they could just make it less expensive for poor inner city blacks to defend themselves, crime would drop even further.
What is the Apocrypha and what’s it doing in my Bible? — Good overview.
3 Quick & Easy Charts Show Why Burger King Wants to Move From the U.S. to Canada — Before anyone calls them unpatriotic, ask yourself if you would drive a few miles to a different town to cut your taxes by more than half. You can wring your hands all you like when your customers / taxpayers leave you, or you can figure out how to beat your competitors.
And don’t miss that Warren Buffet is heavily involved with this, despite his faux-“I want to pay more taxes” bit.
DrinkSafe Coasters Keep You Safe from Date Rape Drugs — Bars should also have cameras to detect who does this. It should be a serious felony with long, mandatory prison time. The drugs are used to rape after essentially kidnapping someone, so those are approaching capital offenses in my book.
Mike Brown’s rap lyrics — The “gentle giant” sure had a way with words. NSFW.
Euthanasia Activists Aggressively Pushing UK to Legalize Assisted Suicide – I assume that anyone who agrees with them had no issues with Robin Williams’ suicide.
Sarah Palin predicted a weak Obama would enable the ‘invasion’ of Ukraine, so Obama is loathe to call it an ‘invasion’ – Too bad the Left was too busy trying to destroy her.
Back in 2008, Sarah Palin warned the world that, if the United States elected a weak-minded equivocator like Senator Barack Obama as its next President, it would embolden Vladimir Putin and spark an invasion of Ukraine.
As she said at the time:
“After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of moral indecision and equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”
Attention gay rights lobby: your feelings aren’t constitutionally protected – As we predicted, the LGBTQX lobby won’t rest until they can force you to participate in their “weddings” even in your own church or home.
Pro-Life Group Asks Tax-Funded PBS to Cancel Film “Humanizing” Docs Who Do Third-Trimester Abortions – The babies they killed could not be reached to comment.
One School’s ‘Horrific’ Sex-Ed Photos Are Outraging Parents — These were even more over-the-top than usual. The Left is truly taking an in-your-face approach to sane people.
Emma Jackson, Victim of #Rotherham Rape Gangs: ‘They Like Us Naive’– Where are the feminists?!
Julie Bindel (@bindelj) was the first to report on The Rotherham Horror — the vicious sex-trafficking gangs of Muslim men who preyed on English girls, an atrocity officials ignored for fear of “racism” — and I want to begin this by giving her full credit for her work.
One of the things that most shocked me about this story was a simple question: Where were the feminists? Here you have girls as young as 11 being raped and pimped out, and you might think that there would be daily outpourings of feminist rage about it, yet this problem has been allowed to fester for years without decisive official action? Something is clearly wrong in British culture, if political correctness could keep feminists quiet about this savagery.
Planned Parenthood Calling Abortion a “Voluntary Miscarriage” is Patently Offensive — Hey, it is a great argument, provided you can’t see the difference between A and B:
A. Human being dies of natural causes (inside or outside the womb)
B. Human being is deliberately killed by a 3rd party (inside or outside the womb)
In other words, grandma dying in her sleep is just a “little” different than someone clubbing her to death.
Mitch McConnell Doesn’t Help Republicans Look Anti-Cronyism — At least the Republicans have people willing to call out frauds like McConnell. I’ll never donate to the national Republican groups.
Performing Homosexual Acts With a Different Degenerate Each Day for a Year Is Passed Off as an Artwork — Wait, that can’t be right. This isn’t what they showed on Will & Grace & Modern Family. (No, I didn’t watch either of those shows.)
Study explains why college women embrace binge-drinking and hooking up – Great stuff. Read it all.
Once a woman abandons femininity for feminism, then sex is all that she can use to get noticed by a man. Men are like hiring managers, and courting is like a job interview for the job of marriage and mothering. If a woman tries to get the job by having sex with the interviewer, he isn’t going to hire her for the marriage job, since sex has almost nothing to do with the marriage job. Men have to think about things like fidelity and mothering ability when they are choosing a wife. The problem is that thanks to feminism, women have stopped trying to show their ability to be wives and mothers to men, preferring to instead act like men – no emotions, toughness, hardness, binge-drinking, promiscuity. Men may be happy to have sex with women like that, but they do not commit to them. Moreover, if a man is constantly being offered sex from feminist women during his 20s and 30s, he basically loses all the time that he could be training for his roles as protector, provider and moral/spiritual leader. He will never take on those roles if he is handed sex before marriage for free. That is the root cause of the “man-up” complaint that women make. Why don’t men grow up? Because they don’t have to in order to get sex – women are giving them oral sex on the first date now. There is no need to prove themselves as husbands and fathers anymore.
In a previous post, I explained how feminists wanted to get women to drink like men, have sex like men, and to abolish courtship and marriage. Under the influence of cultural definitions of what makes a good man and a good relationship, women began to choose men to have sex with without any consideration of morality, religion, marriage, etc. This results in a cycle of binge-drinking, one-night-stands, cheating, co-habitating, breaking-up, stalking, aborting, etc., until the woman’s ability to trust and love anyone – including herself – is completely destroyed. And yet these college women somehow believe this is is “fun” and “adventurous”, that it makes them feel “sexy”, and that the experience of being selfish and seeing the worst kind of men acting in the worst possible ways, point blank, somehow prepares them for marriage and motherhood. They are told this, and they are so unable to break out of their need to “fit in” with their peers and culture that by the time they realized they’ve been had, it’s too late to fix it. And yet, they themselves made those decisions. They are responsible.
Feminists Courageously Defending Their Right to Another Red Solo Cup – Another great piece on feminism. How dare people suggest that binge-drinking might lead to undesirable consequences!
The Orwellian Nightmare of university life in the 21st century has re-defined everything to conform to radical feminist doctrine. Students arriving at college ought to be greeted by signs warning them that the Bill of Rights does not apply on campus. It is against the law for an 18-year-old to possess or consume alcohol. Yet if a freshman girl gets illegally drunk at a party, where she meets a freshman boy who is also illegally drunk, and if they proceed to do together what drunk college freshmen have been doing since time immemorial, only the male can be held responsible for this activity. (The penis is synonymous with sexual power, according to feminist theory.) Thus, if the drunken activity is unsatisfactory to the female participant — or if her memories of it are too vague for her to remember whether she enjoyed it, or if the guy isn’t as nice in the morning as he seemed the night before when she was guzzling vodka and grinding with him in the dimly lit frat-house cellar – she will accuse him of rape, and he must be presumed guilty.
How To Shrink Your Church In One Easy Step — If your “church” mirrors the world, why would people bother attending? They can get the same messages at school, on TV, in the news, etc.
Every major American church that has taken steps towards liberalization on sexual issues has seen a steep decline in membership.
By now, we’ve all heard the refrain that U.S. churches need liberalize their teachings on sexuality and homosexuality or rapidly decline. The logic behind the argument is simple: more and more Americans are embracing homosexuality and same-sex marriage, including growing numbers of religious Millennials. So long as churches remain the face of opposition to gay marriage, those churches will shrink into irrelevancy when gay marriage (inevitably, we are told) becomes a settled political issue.
These arguments often see church acceptance of homosexuality as a carrot as well as a stick. It isn’t so much that denouncing homosexuality will drive people away from church, but that embracing it will also lead people into church. LGBT individuals and their supporters, many of whom hold a dim view of religion after a decades-long culture war, will reconsider church if denominations remove their restrictions on gay marriage and ordination.
But a number of Christian denominations have already taken significant steps towards liberalizing their stances on homosexuality and marriage, and the evidence so far seems to indicate that affirming homosexuality is hardly a cure for membership woes. On the contrary, every major American church that has taken steps towards liberalization of sexual issues has seen a steep decline in membership.
Federal bulletin: U.S. facing imminent terrorist attack via southern border — One would have to be extremely foolish and naive or an enemy of the U.S. to support the open borders movement. There are very, very bad people in the world who can easily exploit our southern border — if they haven’t already. The blood will be on the hands of the Leftists.
How NOT to Globally Empower the United Methodist Church — The racist non-Christians who took over the national UMC roles are once again trying to exclude Africans from having voting power.
Despite Threats – QuikTrip Has No Plans To Rebuild in #Ferguson — And why would any rational business person rebuild where the locals had stolen or destroyed their property with no assurance that it wouldn’t happen again? I feel sorry for the law-abiding citizens there. If any Leftists want to risk their own money to build stores there, be my guest.
