A Bird In La Bouche

While rummaging through the files of yore, I found these. Unfortunately I don’t have links to the original sources (although some may be found here).

Tonight’s OOT is dedicated to those who have been actively blocked after speaking their opinions on Twitter and elsewhere, and especially to Aaron. You peeps who’ve been following the blatant attacks on the 1st Amendment know exactly what I’m talking about on The Overnight Open Thread.

    so, i went to the amazon page for the book from the previous thread (here) only to find that, once again before the book is even available to read, the nuts are “tagging” it. stupid amazon. they don’t allow comments/reviews on it until it’s out; they need to not allow tags either.

    It makes me crazy (not a long drive from here)lol, to see how hard it is for individuals to take on a ‘system’. Our so called Human Rights Commissions employ 1,000 people across Canada who sue bloggers & other writers in every Province. That’s recent info from Ezra Levant. Rogue government in action in Canada. As for Aaron, I trust that there are enough good people to make a stink about a convicted psychopath and a hack judge. One day at a time, one crook at a time…….. Normally I stay off DOD issues, but LGF has invaded the real world with Chuckian logic and slimy associates again.

    Yep. I agree. I have become accustomed to associating these dirty tactics from the left. That’s my experience. It is only Conservative bloggers and writers who are being sued wrt freedom of speech. Our news has always slanted left. As with Kimberlin, a single person is using the kangaroo court system disproportionately. He’s not a criminal, but he is a former Human Rights Commission employee and games the system for money and to shut down opinions that do not match his own. In REAL TIME.

    Yup, he called me up and told me what kind of test it was and how it went, he was a little worried because they did a terrible job of explaining the kind of test, but I laugh my ass off and explained it to him. He aced that sucker big time. :grin:

    More Miss Pennsylvania news:

    “I refuse to be a part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural born males to compete in it,” she wrote in the email, which Sanders provided. “This goes against every moral fiber of my being. I believe in integrity, high moral character and fair play, none of which are part of this system any longer.”

    Her Facebook page lists her politics as “conservative” and her religious views as “John 3:16,” a reference to the Bible verse.

    Trump, who runs the Miss Universe Organization, called Monnin’s claims of pageant rigging “totally ridiculous.”

    “We’re going to be suing her now. She made a very false charge, and she knows it’s a false charge,” Trump said on “Good Morning America.”

    She’d have gotten a lot more support if she’d have made her stand without even bringing up the rigging.

    It looks as though she was looking for an out.

    @ Bumr50:
    I have to say, the integrity of Beauty Pageants was not a concern for me and after hearing this story, it’s even less so. Most of these women have been in the “pageant system” since they were children and these events never have stuck me as repositories of “integrity, high moral character and fair play”. The girl may have a point, she may not, but I get the disticnct impression that this is more about garnering publicity (and it’s clearly worked) than it is about a crusade for fairness.

    The transsexual was a publicity boon for her/him/it and the pageant and I’m just cynical enough to believe that was precisely the point. It seems that every day brings something more outrageous than the day before and I’m getting “outrage burnout”. I’m so numb from it all that I have to really work at developing an interest in what’s actually important.

    @ Bumr50:

    I don’t pay much attention to pagents. Couldn’t tell you who won Miss America last year, or Miss World, or whatever, but I will say that bringing in transexuals is downright creepy. I don’t care how you slice it (no pun intended :P ), transexuals have a psychological disorder. If the dude thought he was Napoleon, everyone would agree he is crazy, but if he (chromosome pattern XY) thinks he’s a she (chromosome pattern XX) he has a point? It is a delusion. It is sad, just as any mental illness is sad, but it is dangerous to pretend that it is normal and natural.

    The only feminine side I need to get in touch with is my wife. My tolerance for the LGBTXYZPDQ crowd has been stretched to the breaking point. They aren’t content to be left alone to do whatever they want in the privacy of their own home. No, they have to make it everybody’s business by pushing it in our faces. Intolerant? Go ahead and call me names. I am beyond caring. When they make it my business, then it become smy business, and I intend to voice my strong disapproval of their chosen lifestyle.

    Gays comprise some 2-5% of the population and transsexuals probably wouldn’t even register as a meaningful percentage. I’m not intolerant, I let ‘em be. I worked in the airline industry and knew a number of openly gay men (the biz is a gay magnet) and got along well. The fact is though, I really don’t think about them that much and it gets to be off-putting to constantly have to prove my “tolerance”. It’s none of my business, and I don’t want it to be my business.

    Just like race, people should try shutting the fuck up about it and people will become as apathethetic as they are about really important things.

    I’m kinda waiting for cannibalism to become a legitimate “condition” or “syndrome” and a ribbon assigned to “raise awareness”. Sure, it’s shocking now, but just give it a chance.

    Hell, why don’t we just remove “taboo” from the vocabulary? It’s not like we really need it anymore. I remember when the Beatles hair (halfway over their ears!) was actually controversial. Gawd, I’m becoming a curmudgeon…..

    I had gay co-workers when I worked in the resturant industry and I have gay co-workers now. They don’t make a big deal about it, and I could care less. It is their private business. That is the way it should be. I don’t bandy about what me a nd my wife do in the bedroom, either. It has no bearing on work, and should never enter the -picture. To tell the truth, I used to be very sympathetic to the gay marriage thing, but the gays themselvesa have convinced me that it isn’t about fairness but about sticking a finger in the eyes of straights and destroying traditional marriage. That is an entirely different thing.

    Obama Caught Lying Again: He Was Member of ‘New Party,’ Says Kurtz

    It’s safe to assume that he’s ALWAYS lying…

    Yep. Truth does not reside in his soul; or any member of his regime for that matter. Carney is simply amazing. He can stand flatfooted, look you in the eye and tell the most ridiculous, naked lies like no one I have ever seen. He has a special skill set.

    @ huckfunn:

    He’s taking water.

    McCain is even jumping in.

    Arizona Sen. John McCain on Tuesday demanded an investigation into the recent leaks of classified information on U.S. intelligence operations.

    The ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, who lost the 2008 presidential election to Barack Obama, accused the White House of leaking sensitive details on covert missions to The New York Times in order to “paint a portrait of the president of the United States as a strong leader on national security issues.”

    @ Bumr50:
    Most unsporting of McRINO after BO had such nice things to say about him last week. But seriously, there seems to be quite a few peeps jumping on this band wagon and rightfully so. Giving up deeply classified intel for political gain is nothing short of criminal. I hope this thing gets busted wide open.

    Indeed. If it’s Okay with you, I moved a thread by Flyover to come up in about 5 minutes since yours is stuck in the pipe. When the bosses come in they can re-schedule yours for 1100.

    yep,,those that demand tolerance are usually
    the least tolerant

    In the end, there is only liberty and restraint and the broadening umbrella of “tolerance” smells a lot more like restraint than it does liberty.
