No, Snowflake, The State is Not Your Father

Wow, the craziness on college campuses since our leader extraordinaire Mr. Donald J. Trump, president elect, was fairly elected and WON ... has been very weird to say the least. Carol Brown at American Thinker points this out in Universities devolve into pre schools. Excerpt:

"So it should come as no surprise that campuses have become hotbeds for all manner of abject insanity in the wake of Trump’s glorious win last week.

Taking a by no means exhaustive tour, we find the University of Michigan Law School, George Mason University, Emory University, Stanford University, Cornell University, Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Kansas, the University of Michigan at Flint, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Tufts University, Virginia Tech, Iowa State University, Purdue University, Loyola University, the University of California at San Diego, and Bryn Mawr College as places that provide a window into the world of the perpetually offended and “triggered.” And since Trump won the election, he gets the job done. Bigly!

Suicide hotlines and crisis numbers have been posted for the desperately freaked out. Faculty are assuring students that they are “loved.” Gatherings have been organized that provide food, Play-Doh, Legos, and bubbles. Grief counseling and psychological services have been made available. Kittens and puppies have been brought into classrooms to offer comfort.

Cry-ins have been organized. Tissues and hot chocolate have been handed out along with crafts supplies. Therapy dogs have been introduced to stave off complete mental breakdowns. Students are demanding that classes be canceled due to exhaustion, depression, and safety concerns. Some are calling for “Trump free” spaces."

I mean SERIOUSLY? Wow... just wow... this is so very PATHETIC. 

vintage diaper pins - purpose: for BABY DIAPERS
An article from the Daily Signal was on to the reason for these college acting like BABIES: due to a LARGE ever intrusive GOVERNMENT STATE - "Are we a bunch of softies?" from 2011:

"The coddling administrative state is paternalistic—but unlike a father, who wants his children to grow into adults, the government “seeks only to keep them fixed irrevocably in childhood.” The dangerous outcome of the nanny state is soft citizens with a childlike sense of entitlement. This reality is evident in an interview of a Wall Street protester who was recently asked, “Why should anyone pay for your college tuition?” The interviewee could not produce an articulate response beyond “it’s what I want.”.
 
HEY snowflake, guess what, we don't care what you "want". You aren't entitled to anything... Temper tantrums are NOT behaviors deserving a reward. Your feelings are your own. You are the owner of being offended. You are COMPLETELY in control. You can choose NOT to be offended.  But to do this... you will HAVE to grow up, learn how the actual real world works, learn actual American history and stop living and believing Leftist cultural Marxist lies YOUR college, the media and Hollyweird have been SPOON FEEDING YOU.

The STATE is not your FATHER snowflake.  Period.

Jollitude the O error is OVER

Couple of excellent columns out there today celebrating the victory that is President Elect Trump.

I AM peronally THRILLED the "O error is OVER - Daniel Greenfield at Sultan knish says it best:

""Presidents were elected by Saturday Night Live skits. John Oliver, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee were our journalists. Safe spaces were everywhere and you better watch your microaggressions, buddy. No more coal would be mined. No more anything would be made. The end of men was here. The end of the dead white men of the literary canon. The end of white people. The end of binary gender and marriage. The end of reason. The end of art. The end of 2 + 2 equaling 4. This was Common Core time. It was time to pardon an endless line of drug dealers. To kill cops and praise criminals. To be forced to buy worthless health insurance for wealth redistribution to those who voted their way to wealth.

This was Obama's America. And there was no going back. We were rushing through endless goal posts of social transformation. The military fell. Then the police. Now it looks as quaint as anything from the 50s, the 70s or the 80s. A brief moment of foolishness that already appears odd and awkward. And then one day nostalgic. It wasn't the future. It's already the past. It's history.

Scalia died. Hillary Clinton was bound to win. And she would define the Supreme Court. Downticket races would give her a friendly Senate. And then perhaps the House.

But there is no right side of history. There is only the side we choose.

The Obama era was permanent. It was history. Now it is history." - and -

"The Obama era ends not with a bang, but with a whimper. With a national consensus that maybe he didn't really matter so much after all. And those to whom he mattered the most were his enemies determined to undo everything he did. 

Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he belongs in the rubbish bin." 

AMEN to that Mr. Greenfield!!

Also from Marion Dreyfus at AT:"Yes!" what does Trump's victory mean?

"The jollitude of watching so many shake their heads repeatedly in disbelief.
The welcoming in of smart, thoughtful, decent cabinet members and the ouster of Islamist-flecked, hateful incompetents schooled in nothing but prog nonsense repeatedly proven failures for 100 years, nasty sorts seeking only to weaken the country with idiocies and schemes resulting in a Dead Sea GDP and a 1929 despair among small entrepreneurs and regular folk.
The delight of having Melania as FLOTUS over the fistface of Mooch and her whiny throat-catchy self-righteousness.
The return of fiscal sanity and a cessation of the First Family feeding from the American taxpayer trough, M/M Obuma and hangers-on spending our millions on unwarranted vacays, splurges, private jets, and expensive stayovers to which they are not entitled.
The pure joy of not having another horrific four years like the past eight." 

Is "jollitude" even a word?  Never heard it before, but today I am definitely filled with it.

WORD OF THE DAY after a President Trump VICTORY =  JOLLITUDE!




President Trump elected as 45th potus.... DEAL with it

THANK GOD the USA had enough people motivated to vote for real change and install President Trump as the 45th president of the United States of America.


USA voters FINALLY saw through the biased left leaning "mainstream" media's LIES (over past decades).

USA voters WANT a border and a sovereign USA.

thank god....

President Trump has a mandate to enact real change.

Below was a good visual of the choice... and voters chose wisely.


I haven't blogged for a few years.  I've been on twitter though and following some really good alternative news sites like The Conservative Treehouse and The Gateway Pundit.

I'll clean my old blog entries later... but for now... I'm back.

Land of the free and the brave: for how long?

This is the America I know...  I wonder how long she'll exist.

Battle for America's soul

There are a lot of naysayers around and I see a lot of problems in USA from afar down here in NZ.

Sometimes it is infuriating.  I hear lots of crickets chirping and lot of attention is paid to those crickets. But the majority of folks are still those silent cattle in the field.



More of the silent USA majority are getting involved.  The battle has started for America's soul. The minority 30-40% Left has been waging their war against the center Right majority for decades. Their current chosen-one, totus-reader, mulatto devil-incarnate "leader" lets the world burn (middle east, open borders, IRS scandal, Ferguson riots, more shootings in Chicago, a USMC left to rot in a Mexican jail and so on and so on...) while he plays golf, dances and hob knobs with white rich folk in Martha's Vinyard or his Hollyweird pals. He is not a "leader".





Only We.The.People can truly save America.

flag from the first Christian crusade


The Pope and the Vatican have currently called for ARMS against Islamic Jihadists in the middle east.

If any Christians are to remain in the middle east, will another justified crusade happen?


And in the USA, Christians need to stand up and FIGHT for America, too.

Trevor Grant Thomas has some ideas:

"If America is to stem her descent into a spiritual and moral winter, then Christians across the country must do their best to ignite fires of faith in their families, churches, communities, schools, places of work, and so on, and be the light we are called to be. We do not need Christians who see compromise (with Scripture) as the way forward. Neither do we need Christian monasteries or compounds where biblical values and truths are hoarded and hidden from our nation.

What we need are communities full of faithful families led by fathers and mothers who want to work hard, raise children, attend church, and pass on their biblical values to the next generation, and the next, and so on. As Psalm 78 implores the rebellious nation of Israel: fathers teach your children, so that they will in turn teach their children -- so it should be with every nation that wants to walk in the truth.

Such communities need to be “cities on a hill,” welcoming all those who want to join, so that the American people can clearly contrast the ways of those who are “lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God” with those who seek to live the “godly life in Christ Jesus.” Thus Americans can clearly choose whether to be part of, as Augustine put it, the “City of God” or the “City of Man.”

"America is in the midst of a battle for her soul and it’s time that more Christians started acting like it."

Stand With Israel

I support Israel's right to exist.  From Dennis Prager:

 

From Apr 28, 2014 "The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again."

End African Ebola Outbreak by ending ALL financial AID to Africa

Ebola's current spread - from The Economist
Want to REALLY help Africa?  STOP SENDING THEM MONEY.

From 2005, reason why from African Economist regarding Kenya :

"SPIEGEL: Mr. Shikwati, the G8 summit at Gleneagles is about to beef up the development aid for Africa...
Shikwati: ... for God's sake, please just stop.
SPIEGEL: Stop? The industrialized nations of the West want to eliminate hunger and poverty.
Shikwati: Such intentions have been damaging our continent for the past 40 years. If the industrial nations really want to help the Africans, they should finally terminate this awful aid. The countries that have collected the most development aid are also the ones that are in the worst shape. Despite the billions that have poured in to Africa, the continent remains poor.

SPIEGEL: Do you have an explanation for this paradox?

Shikwati: Huge bureaucracies are financed (with the aid money), corruption and complacency are promoted, Africans are taught to be beggars and not to be independent. In addition, development aid weakens the local markets everywhere and dampens the spirit of entrepreneurship that we so desperately need. As absurd as it may sound: Development aid is one of the reasons for Africa's problems. If the West were to cancel these payments, normal Africans wouldn't even notice. Only the functionaries would be hard hit. Which is why they maintain that the world would stop turning without this development aid.

SPIEGEL: Even in a country like Kenya, people are starving to death each year. Someone has got to help them.

Shikwati: But it has to be the Kenyans themselves who help these people. When there's a drought in a region of Kenya, our corrupt politicians reflexively cry out for more help. This call then reaches the United Nations World Food Program -- which is a massive agency of apparatchiks who are in the absurd situation of, on the one hand, being dedicated to the fight against hunger while, on the other hand, being faced with unemployment were hunger actually eliminated. It's only natural that they willingly accept the plea for more help. And it's not uncommon that they demand a little more money than the respective African government originally requested. They then forward that request to their headquarters, and before long, several thousands tons of corn are shipped to Africa ..."

The Conservative Treehouse has some insight on why disease spreads in Africa and other "third world" countries. Their "health professionals" aka 'doctors' and 'nurses' DO NOT WASH THEIR HANDS!:

"What she has been facing in Liberia in the last twelve+ months since she arrived there was/is precisely the same as what my friend in Madagascar describes.

She has had to do polite but determined battle even with the doctors on staff at the fledgling hospital regarding washing hands and doing procedures properly, not taking short cuts in surgery because of frustration, enforcing 100% performance with regard to sterilized instruments in surgery, etc.

When the ebola menace appeared on their radar this spring she had had about ten months with that hospital, those doctors, and the nursing staff.

When they began their ramp-up in May or so, they had to force the understanding that the completely suit-up in the space suits was not optional where ebola was concerned. It was a flat requirement. No, the families would not be allowed to come and squat in the hospital with their family member who would be in isolation. No, they would not be allowed to touch them or cook for them.

This is the battleground in Liberia and Madagascar. There’s no evidence of ebola in Madagascar that I’ve heard of – just acknowledging those are my two points of first hand information from medical professionals on the scene.

So when you hear about the Nigerian government taking action, or a certain measure being imposed in Monrovia – that’s fine. But it’s not significant in terms of practical impact when you consider what the reality is throughout the nation(s) as soon as you’ve passed the city limits.

This horse is already way out of the barn. The announcements, pronouncements, and edicts being issued now are for PR purposes. They may have limited effect in limited situations. May have."

CRIKEY - >> African "health professionals" have NOT EVEN LEARNED they have to wash their flipping hands and cover up OPEN WOUNDS so disease won't spread!

And WHY haven't they LEARNED this?  Because USA and other countries keep HELPING THEM and giving "them" money - African has NOT learned. The only thing they've learned is PERPETUAL VICTIMHOOD.

STOP SENDING HELP OR ANY MONEY. Period.

They HAVE to learn THEMSELVES.  If a few thousand DIE, perhaps they'll get motivated to HELP THEIR DAMN SELVES.
