DOES ANYTHING HERE SOUND FAMILIAR?

I was just reading Mark Noonan’s latest screed about free speech. I’d like to remind readers of this blog that we do not delete comments for any reason unless requested to do so, or in the case of errant information or potentially actionable cases of libel; all of which have taken place a collective total of five times in nearly nine years of bringing reason to the Living. That said the kernel of reason in Mark’s post was washed away quickly by his inability to understand that free speech isn’t always civil. People with passions about issues are often hostile in their words. Like many journalists I would like cooler heads to prevail and intellect to rule discourse, but hey, I’m quick to call a motherfucker a motherfucker when the situation warrants.

Retired Spook made an interest comment here it is in full

I apply the same metrics to free speech that I apply to anything involving freedom. When someone condemns something I’ve said, my first reaction is, why? That simple one word question, more often than not, will open a dialogue, and, worst case scenario, you may just have to agree to disagree. Now if someone goes beyond disagreeing to attempting to punish me for something I said or prevent me from saying it, then my fall-back position is ALWAYS, “I will defend my right to say what I said with my life. Will you defend your position to punish me for what I said with YOUR life? If not, then get the hell out of my face. I’ve found, 100% of the time, that people who would attempt to shut someone up that they disagree with NEVER go beyond either the mob mentality of shouting someone down or recruiting others to do the dirty work for them.

hindsight 2312
In Hindsight
That last line in italics is the part that makes me wonder about the belief that Mark Noonan and many of the others on the conservative side of the fence really have in their ideology. It’s also what made Cluster take down his own site simply because people cannot be cordial. Fuck that. If you don;t have passion for politics and political thinking you need to go back to your knitting group. This is a hardball issue that will affect the future not only of America but of the world you live in. If that’s not worth calling someone an asshole or a fucking bigot when you clearly know they are then get out of the game.

BREAKING NEWS: SOURCES CLOSE TO RUSH LIMBAUGH, “RUSH WILL RETIRE, 24 FEBRUARY 2017″

Posted in BREAKING NEWS, RUSH LIMBAUGH with tags , on 17/04/2014 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

The newspaper offices here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork are nearly ablaze with activity as three executive sources close to the production of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show carried by Premiere Radio Networks have stated that at the end of his contract which runs through 2016, “Limbaugh will retire shortly after the next presidential election, no matter who wins. His strike date to retire is 24 February 2017.” Limbaugh has been the loudest voice for conservative political ideologues for more than 25 years and his departure, which sources say will be announced at the beginning of 2016, will create a gaping hole in the conservative dominated talk radio sphere. The radio host will be 66 years old when he retires and has stated privately, according to the same sources that he wants to retire “to enjoy what he’s earned.”

Premiere Radio Networks could not be contacted for a response to this report. We will continue to try to get an official on the record verification of this story as the day progresses.

COCO AUSTIN THURSDAY: READY FOR SPRING TO BUST OUT

After this past winter, especially on the east coast of the United States, I am certain everyone is ready for spring to take hold and summer to come on full force. Over the last few days the Midwest has been revisited by winter in the harshest of terms. Floods, mudslides, snowstorms in April. It’s almost too much to take.

Maybe Coco can help the weather warm up a little . . .

The free loaves and spectacle of the unraveling of the Religious Right begin now . . .

William Best, 47, the former pastor of the Living Waters Worship Center is being held in the Dallas County, Alabama Jail on $2 million bond on multiple counts of second degree rape, incest and second degree sodomy. it is alleged that Best raped a female 17 year old relative several times over the last three years in his own home and at the church.

Randy Giuliani, 49 has been charged with the rape of a child under the age of 13 and is being held on $200,000 bond. Giuliani had been a pastor at a church that was not named by media reports. Sources tell The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork that the victim was 5 years old when the assault began.

Tyler David Bliss, 27, is being held in Modesto, California pending a federal arraignment on child pornography distribution charges. Bliss had been a youth minister at Bethel Church in Oakdale since 2009 where he worked with junior high and high school children.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

THE DEEP DESIRES OF CONSERVATIVES

Regarding the Bundy ranch case, this from a conservative:

[From B4V]
In the words of our good friend, Neo … BRING IT!

I have a feeling that a lot of people are just itching for the feds to make one stupid move, and the war is on!!

GMB, that’s a given for any modern day politician. They don’t care about how they make tax-paying people suffer. Taxpayers buy their vacations, lavish dinners, tuxedos, dresses, wine, etc. Not to mention the communist core of government that wants to “even the playing field” so to speak. But it has nothing to do with evening the playing field…it has everything to do with control…and everyone who does not comply either goes to prison or gets a bullet to the back of the head, China and North Korea for example. That is what our modern day politicians want. Anyone who has ever survived a communist regime can attest to that. That’s why they want gun control…they key word being – control. They want to control information, and communication, key word once again, is Control.

Americans need to be TIRED of this mess, and they need to fight back with UN-reckoning force.

I would love to go out to the Bundy Ranch and join other patriotic Americans. Unfortunately I do not have the money to make the trip. You can bet though that I will be fighting it on my own turf when it arrives.

A HREF=”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/14/Feds-to-Pursue-Bundy-Ranch-Judicially-After-Standoff”>%5BFrom Breitbart.com]

Oballah is up to his eyeballs in this, he wants to give our natural resources away to the UN. He stopped this incident, no doubt in my mind, he did not want that SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD, not just yet anyway.

Yeah like that crack ho squawking about her free Obama phone. “Obama is great…Romney sucks.”

I totally get it…you are down for the struggle of the Red Man…putting in their casino’s to rape the white man of his cash through gambling. Totally.

Course replacing a bad thing with another bad thing is always the way liberals react. Especially when it fits their template for get-even-ism. Reparations??? Jack-wad.

Wish i could have helped out . The most American i have felt in a long long time !!

A Kangaroo Federal Judge should not be allowed to make a decision. A case of this magnitude should be decided by a well educated Nevadian jury of Cliven Bundy’s peers. The jury should be well versed in the history of land, grazing, and water rights in Nevada. Cliven Bundy deserves a fair, open, and impartial judicial proceeding to present his grievances against the Federal Leviathan.

[From The Blaze]

The news said a thousand or so showed up from all over the place.

I saw some footage and the protesters are armed. I saw a lot of AR15′s and some bullet proof vests too.

An armed populace is a free populace–the only deterrent to giant governments composed of a few egotistical bureaucrats who seek to intimidate the populace into submission.

Some people are stating that Bundy was wrong to do what he did. They believe that he did this only for himself. They believe that he should be paying the grazing fees. That’s disputable, but the fact is that these people were legally protesting and as a result, the unelected armed BLM bullied them. Also consider the excuse that the BLM used regarding the turtle, when THEY are the ones that are actually killing the turtles. Add the fact that Harry Reid’s son made a deal with China to build a solar plant which includes Bundy’s legally owned property….you tell me if this isn’t an infringement on 1st amendment rights, along with big bully government taking what they want from citizens? As for other Ranchers complaining about Bundy not paying the fees….that is complete BS! Most all the Ranchers are standing right beside Bundy!

Don’t let a few Troll bloggers and the Media turn Cliven Bundy into something he’s not. We have all talked about this and now a very brave man stood. We need to stand with him and others who will stand.

People need to stay vigilant because this isn’t over. We need to support anyone that will stand up against this tyrannical government – everywhere in America!

I agree with you Bob. They now know exactly how fed up we are and how far we are willing to go to fight them. They will be fighting even harder to infringe upon our second amendment rights. And while they have backed off of Bundy for now. They will come back in full force as soon as they think the coast is clear. I am keeping that family in my prayers.

[From Newsmax]

Sounding more like the leader of a rebellion than a cattle rancher in a land dispute with the government, Bundy told Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Monday that he wants all county sheriffs in the United States to take away the weapons of “federal bureaucrats.” It is rapidly turning into a rebellion and Mr. Bundy is right.

The Interior and BLM are using tax dollars to harass, intimidate, threaten, confiscate private property, and threaten to shoot citizens. Congress needs to rein them in and fast before they kill someone. Well we have seen first hand where all the ammo is going. Obama’s civilian army.

This is not Americans against Americans, it’s Americans against a rogue government that’s way out of line. This country is fast approaching a tipping point of no return.

[From CNS News]

These weren’t law enforcement officers. They were Fourth Branch military personnel acting in direct violation to the Posse Comitatus Act.

its unconstitutional to take peoples land at gunpoint to hand over to a foreign entity or to the UN, which is what is going on here, troll..

11 million ILLEGAL immigrants in this country, with more coming everyday and you’re calling Bundy a criminal? Your president is a bold faced liar and has violated his oathe to defend and uphold the constitution so many times I have lost count, and by the way, YOU dont tell me what to buy, PERIOD! I do NOT care what your corrupt bought out venal supreme court decides! You want to do away with the republic and the rule of law and impose pure democracy? Then mob rule is what you will get!

Yes. I am sick and tired of going to bed every night wondering what infringement of my rights I will wake up to the next day. I have long passed the point of being told by the left that they stand for the rights of the little guy and are doing what is best for “our” society while they trample upon individual MY freedoms and exclude my opinions and desires. They have made it very clear that I should have no say, making it “Their” society where I am just a tool to be utilized and expolited to futher their agenda. Adding insult to injury, I am informed that my opinions are racist, compasionless, and backwards!I am NOT a republican or a democrat. I am an independent individual who stands for individual freedom. With freedom comes personal responsibilty and I WILL NOT condone or accept assisitance from or payment for programs of the government! The government was created to protect my freedoms and liberties, and THAT IS ALL! Accepting government dependence does not make a better society, “Slaves are made in such ways”. I am nobody’s slave or serf!
What will it take for the left to realize that there are those of us who will NEVER relinguish our liberties or property for the “so called” good of a society we have been excluded from?As the mass exodus from leftist states and their policies continues to more freedom loving states, how long will it be before the inevitable confrontation takes place?! If you need to see what a marxist revolution looks like, so be it.

This is what Progressives are up against. A dying base that is willing to take up arms to protect someone who is breaking the law simply because they know their time is up. The Bureau of Land Management did exactly what was in the best interest of the American people by not giving the far Right another group of martyrs to weep over.
