Pin The Tale on The Donkey

I don’t normally bootstrap blog posts onto other people’s epic videos, but when I do it is truth boom that hits you in your solar plexus.

Here is a nice little stroll down memory lane for the ‘switched sides’ brigade. Happy Independance Day America, enjoy your little factual history lesson.

And while you are at it, look up who put Japanese Americans in concentration camps and look up who proposed reparations for them.

The Truth of Sport

There is nothing quite like failing a Figure Skating test at the age of 31 that catapults one back to being the last picked for kickball.

Despite getting ballet lessons when I asked for figure skating as a child, I decided at 31 I was not dead, it was never too late and off I went, “the beginning of me.”

Group lessons gave way to private, and ice dancing became my passion when I had a lesson with a visiting coach from Russia. “Why you so clumsy,” he queried upon delivering me back to coach Marie.

I practiced the Dutch Waltz doggedly for my upcoming test. The only thing I remember of that debacle was my coach not looking at me and me forgetting the steps.

Crushed but undaunted, I shook it off and made a whole new plan for the next one. Take two tests, that way if I failed again, I had a shot ten minutes later to pass the other. I had a competition dress made and formed a life long bond with Marie my coach, but none of this helped my anxiety.

The day before the test, Marie said, “As your friend, I am telling you, you do not have to do this. Nothing is worth putting yourself through this.”

But I refused to bail, not after she and I had become so close and she had worked so hard, but I was a mess, just like the time before.

On test day, I donned my new skating frock, and lucky bra; I applied my make up, did my hair and threw up before setting off to the rink and another failure. As I pulled out of my driveway, this song came on the radio and it all melted away in the first strains of that song.

When I got there, I told Marie, “Just look at me, look at me when you put me on the ice, I need you to keep looking at me.” My test partner was another coach and I wasn’t even aware of him at that point I just locked onto her eyes and held her gaze. I craned my head to see her as I skated away to redemption. I ask you now, whom do you really think I was skating with that day?

Amirite ?

After watching this Bill Whittle video I finally get why I cannot stand Pam Geller. It is for the same reason I cannot stand Michael Moore, John Stewart or Bill Maher. None of the people do what they do for altruistic reasons. They stand for nothing other than lining their own pockets and getting attention under the guise of #caring.

I don’t believe for a minute that Pam Geller held her Draw Muhammed contest to take a brave stance for free speech. I believe she did for attention, I have always believed that.  But the great Bill Whittle made me realize finally what I find so loathsome about Pam Geller. She cares as much for free speech as Al Gore does the environment.

I agree with every word in this video. I just wonder if Pam Geller does.

Food Fetishes, Control Freaks, Food Faddists and Charlatans

Honky Tonk Jew:

The only thing that needs banning is the FDA. Kudos to American Elephant for bringing this long overdue overreach to light.

Originally posted on American Elephants:

The FDA is expected to issue a rule that will effectively ban the use of manmade trans-fat containing hydrogenated oils in all foods. There’s some controversy about the difference between the manmade variety — the trans-fats that occur naturally in beef and dairy products — and the trans fats in partially hydrogenated oils. The American Heart Association recommends eating no more than 2 grams per day.

In any case, the FDA claims the ban could save around 7,000 lives per year. The agency has required food manufacturers to list the trans fat content of packaged foods since 2006. That’s helped reduce the amount of trans fats in the average American’s diet from far above to well below the American Heart Association recommendations.

So if Americans are already eating less trans fats than health experts recommend, why the push to ban them?

The ban comes as a result of a lawsuit…

Adam Benforado – Liberal Professor Author Who Will Save Us By “New Science”

Honky Tonk Jew:

“Liberal Whoreon”
Laura nails it like no other.

Originally posted on Laura Freed !:

The book Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Injustice by Adam Benforado is going to be released in June, 2015. This is yet another Liberal Whoron who is anti-police, lives in a classroom, yet thinks he knows better than cops. Benforado takes the academic/superior illusion stage by insisting that criminals are not responsible for their actions. 

 The book “Something That Will Change Your Life” – explains how rank strivers like Benforado are corrupting character in an attempt to establish dependency on Govt and academic robot’s like Benforado. The phrase “New Science” in his title is a red flag. New Science is a marketing term designed to attract people who are desperate to be ‘in the know.’ In 2005 Benforado wrote an article for the Baltimore Sun titled “The Conservative Hypocrisy.” 

And Benforado was a student of…WAIT FOR IT…Elizabeth Warren – Ms. Warren flips houses on the side, lives in a mansion, all…

A Revolution is Growing

Honky Tonk Jew:

When Government declares war on, well, itself… children lose.
Hug a Teacher today.

Originally posted on chessmanmark:

On a cold and wintry night in 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty dumped 342 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor. This iconic event occurred because the British government was treating the colonists unfairly and they didn’t have the capacity to listen to their concerns. This would not be the last time in the history of this great country that Americans revolted when government treated people unfairly.

A revolution is growing in New York due to the fact that Andrew Cuomo is incapable of listening to parent’s concerns regarding the education of their children. Quite simply, Governor Cuomo does not respect our teachers or the basic premise of public education. Extortion is the word that comes to my mind when I think of the shameful way he connected desperately needed funding for public schools to draconian educational reforms. He is bleeding public schools dry and then, adding…

The Witch Hunt Continues

After  an in depth investigation based on rhetoric and race baiting, The DOJ had this to say about this failed investigation of Officer Darren Wilson.

“after canvassing more than 300 homes and reviewing physical, ballistic, forensic, medical and crime-scene evidence” and examining “Wilson’s personnel records, audio, and video recordings,” Justice concluded Wilson told the truth about what happened that Saturday in Ferguson.”

But this outgoing race baiter isn’t done yet in Missouri.  “We are prepared to use all the power that we have … to ensure that the situation changes there,” Holder told reporters.

When asked if he would ‘dismantle the Ferguson PD, Holder had this to say, “If that’s what’s necessary, we’re prepared to do that.”

Never let no grounds for prosecution get in your way. Does any of this sound familiar?

First scalp? City Manager John Shaw.

Amazon Flushing Conservative Author Reviews?

Honky Tonk Jew:

It’s very simple. Review the book, deny Amazon the review, blog it yourself and tweet it. If Amazon is dependent upon reviews, starve them out of existence.

Originally posted on Laura Freed !:

To recap: Amazon deleted then blocked my reviews. After I took Amazon’s censorship public on Social Media, they said they were going to reinstate my reviews and reviewing privileges. However, reviews were still missing.

I contacted an author of a book I was sure I had reviewed some time ago – but was missing from my reviews: Dr.  Brian Anse Patrick. Dr. Patrick wrote 10 Commandments of Propaganda. I explained the situation and wondered if he kept copies of his reviews and had a copy of my review.

I have never talked to Dr. Patrick before (however, I’ve always meant to write him an appreciation letter…along with David Mamet!) and was thrilled when he responded.

He explained he does not keep copies of reviews, but does keep track of the number of reviews and notices when new reviews arrive. He stated after my letter, he checked Amazon and noticed there…
