Where I comment on other dudes’ mental and physical deficiencies and also use my snobberies as a basis for disapproval: These white guys who got into a shooting over at the BLM encampment over at the 4th precinct. The ringleader there, he’s a doughy guy, and there’s a video of him on the Youtube shooting a derringer. So one thing…. he’s not a handsome devil, and you can see how that’s probably been a problem for him such that he’s now in this spot in his life. Other thing… he’s a gun guy that likes derringers. Ugh.
I agree: http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2015/11/kevins-three-laws-political-speech if you’re going to use Nazi analogies though, I think you’re obligated to make them good and use them correctly… I have very little to add about the CO / Baby Parts shooting. If I were to circle back to something that briefly preceded it re gun control, it’s this Dem proposal last week that was kicked around that people on the terrorist list are to be denied the ability to pass the retail Instacheck. You’ve got to be obtuse to due process to support this. Is that where Democrats are now? I mean, I know it’s just a bunch of low info political trolling / pandering right, but qualitatively this is somewhat below ‘horseshit’ as a policy argument. But we’re the bad guys for arguing against it…
Counterintuitive: Kochs at #49, NRA at #74 http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php#
I respect the observation that the level of malignancy is because local government is worst government. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/11/protesting-the-corrupt-system-that-killed-laquan-mcdonald/417723/ However… Democrats assert their ideology is superior in part because of enlightened perspective on race. It’s that this assertion is disproved in total when a governmental apparatus like Rahm’s can’t deliver justice because it needs to take the side of the affluent political class over its racial coalitions / voters.
A Hillary pander on taxes: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/hillary-clinton-panders-to-middle-class-voters-with-unrealistic-tax-promises/2015/11/28/a7e55212-9208-11e5-8aa0-5d0946560a97_story.html When Republicans, prog writers are eager to have people understand its ‘lying’ http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2015/10/are-we-allowed-say-marco-rubio-lying-about-his-tax-plan I’ve embraced a David Brooks type understanding of this stuff: Its hyperbole, not a lie. But definitely a signal on candidate values.
