    Sorry DJ, that don”t work no more.

    The PC socialist disease is so deeply rooted and requires the division of the American people, the fake class warfare and all the rest to survive and grow. This 10% of the population will not ALLOW the rest of us to ignore their bleatings and will not rest until they destroy what was America.

    It is in your face 24/7 and harder on weekends.

    Until socialism/progressivism/communism and in general power/money seeking GOVERNENT professionals – so called “elites” are discredited and destroyed, we will not have peace enough to go the “leave me alone and get along” route.

    The Spanish civil war 2.0 now under way is a harbinger of what will come to all socialistic nations and at some point going to happen here before things maybe right themselves back to individual freedom, responsibility and local governance. We do not need a central government of the size it is now. Go back to what is was in 1900 and start over, after killing the income tax and ensuring the only property owners vote, maybe adding one more amendment – no lawyer may become a member of the federal government. , ever!

    Two terms and you go back to your profession. No more professional politicians needed at the federal level, nor the state level while we are at it. And a test for every educator on American civics, history (pre 1940) with absolute understanding of the constitution and it’s proper function, don’t care if you teach math or English, have to pass that or you cannot teach.

    One fundamental contradiction in allowing people to live as they choose: if you allow statists/collectivists to be statists/collectivists, eventually, they’ll start including everyone in their reindeer games, regardless of whether or not those others wish to participate.

    There’s no really good solution that’s intellectually honest, either.

    Journalists should probably have to pass a basic civic test, plus have a degree or background in the subject they cover. Too many economically illiterate covering economics, scientifically illiterate covering science, etc.

    “Let the gays get married?”

    Yeah like this didnt happen?

    The legal fight broke out in 2012 when Phillips told gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig that because of his Christian beliefs, his store’s policy was to deny service to customers wanting to purchase cakes to celebrate a same-sex wedding.

    This poor bastard is now in front of the US SUPREME COURT.

    The high court will now decide whether applying Colorado’s public accommodations law to compel the baker to create “expression”– a wedding cake — violates his constitutionally protected Christian beliefs about marriage.

    Let the gays get married, and watch as the religious and commercial freedoms of others get stomped into the ground by the SJW brigade.

    Fa Cube #4 – agreed, then again there has not been a new self made, off the streets gumshoe investigative reporter in my lifetime (and I am 65), those that existed in the 60′s and prior were pre-rampant liberalism, now they are ALL products of the ivy league or Georgetown (liberal U) which is why we have to right the indoctrination centers education system first, all else follows within a generation or two. Maybe re-introducing a course on logic within the English language curriculum and returning to rote memorization of the math tables might do it.

    And one more things, which could be done by executive order – the language of the U.S. government (Federal – the states can do what they want – see California) shall be English only. Not one dime will be allowed or spent on translation, interpreters or publishing in anything other than English. That alone will start the process of culling immigration.

    A small sermon:

    Democrat – come to America, we will give you everything, you can live in our sanctuary cities/spaces/churches forever
    Conservative – a man you care for and give to without asking labor in return, has no self worth
    Democrat – but look at all the suffering and pestilence these refugees escape from (and they vote for me).
    Conservative – a man with no self worth is a slave, a man with self worth can never become a slave
    Democrat -RAYYCCCIIIIISTTT

    There endeth the sermon
    Amen

    What’s that joke? How do you make a liberal’s and a conservative’s head explode at the same time?

    You say “I fully support the right to keep and bear arms so that all my gay married friends can protect their marijuana crops.”

    I took that ‘feature’ out several years ago because people complained about it.

    And I have a very dear friend who is a practicing Wiccan (I don’t judge her, she doesn’t judge me) who says that the whole thing is:

    “With this one rede, the Wiccan rule fulfill,
    An it harm none, do as you will.”
