      And we are in the midst of a great struggle about this ^^^ . The last few days have been positive, but the attitude abyss/void remains the same, if not wider than ever before.

        Don’t expect them to pack their Big Tents, fold their rainbow flags, bag their ‘V’ masks and go home, they’re in it for the long haul just as we are. Just like roaches the only way you can be sure of getting rid of them is a complete eradication and some party pooper went and made that illegal.

          Czar, what really concerns me is the vocabulary these people use. Reminds me of everything the Nazis said about the Jews. There will be a trigger point, then retribution……

            You answered your own statement…that’s because it’s part of an organized program to dehumanize ‘us’ just like Goebbels used to dehumanize the Jews so that ‘proactive’ measures could be used against them. With us, at this point, it’s just to ‘dehumanize’ our philosophies and, as a byproduct, us. We will be offered a chance to recant and rejoin the new progressive order but only after publicly drinking the Kool Aid.
            The MSM went into 3rd gear when it started to demonize white conservatives with ‘All in the Family’. The concept worked and conservatives and conservative values were attacked thru their most productive area, entertainment.
            A lot of people scoff about the FEMA camp scenario but when you compare what happened in Nazi Germany between 1932 when Hitler slithered into power and just 1935 when the Nuremberg Laws were passed, when Germany went from a swinging liberal sybaritic society to an aver-the-eyes murder machine, does it seem all that far-fetched it could be going on here?
            Trump didn’t appoint Hillary as chancellor but who knows who the Rat party will sugar-coat and run for anti-Christ lite in 2020? Gives ’em four more years to put dry wall and flooring in the camps…even Hitler started out with the death camps as concentration camps for ‘political’ prisoners.
            See how easy it is to do that ‘Hitler’ thing?

            I think it’s good to focus on the fundamentals: We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these Rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

            It’s very unifying; who would disagree? Besides statists, jihadis, racists, and darwinists who advocate that if you can forcibly take something, you deserve it?

      Seems appropriate here:

      Jesus said, β€œEnter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
      –Matthew 7:13-14]

    Wednesday is afternoon tennis. We had a great turn out, 8 people, so two courts of doubles. One of my tennis friends told us that she had a great grandson born that day, around noon, and he was premature. 23 weeks. What can you say? It is a miracle that he is alive, surrounded by technological marvels, and fighting.

    So I am sitting, on duty kinda, while two nice guys install an Eze Breeze Sunroom.. Our cottage came with a small screened in porch, so they are replacing the screens with a vinyl window system. We have been waiting for this since November. Hopefully, we will have another place to sit, even when it is a bit cold. Naturally, it just poured buckets so they had to stop… but things are moving along now. Woot woot. A good time to catch up on the world wind that is our political climate… but so far it’s all good.

    Y’all may or may not remember that I posted a few days ago that a pizza delivery guy had been robbed, shot and killed just a little over a block from our New Orleans home. Probably not conbected except in themes, a 14-year old thug-in-training was arrested for robbing three pizza delivery guys at gunpoint. It’s that damned easy availability of guns, had that gun not lured that chile aways from straight and narrah he’d abin at the liberry astudyin’ for that MIT admissions test .

      Best comment at VP, by “Edjamacator”:

      Rorschach’s Journal. October 12th, 1985: Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout “Save us!”… and I’ll whisper “no.”

      That sums up my attitude towards the left.

      The arguement being made that these people have some arcane Merlinesque training and can’t be replaced is crap. There are building/personnel security experts in DoD and CIA who do the same thing. In US embassies and consulates they provide security for Military attaches and CIA operatives embedded there, as well as related sites that are not State-owned. They are just, if not more, capable of providing the same service if planted in State, just as they did when seconded to State.

    Trump White House abruptly halts Obamacare ads

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/trump-white-house-obamacare-ads-234245

    The Trump administration has pulled the plug on all Obamacare outreach and advertising in the crucial final days of the 2017 enrollment season, according to sources at Health and Human Services and on Capitol Hill.

    Even ads that had already been placed and paid for have been pulled, the sources told POLITICO.

    The decision sends the clearest signal yet that President Donald Trump is determined to fulfill his campaign pledge to repeal Obamacare. Hours after being sworn in, Trump issued his first executive order allowing federal officials to start unwinding parts of the law.

      Sadly true.

      I have become a hate spewer to people I love because I say that Islam is inhumane and should be banned, because I call the the slaughter houses of Planned Parenthood by their proper name, because I say women like Maddona, Linda Sarsour, Donna Hylton, Hillary Clinton et al are evil people who do not care about women, because I say BLM promotes hate.

      It is all so twisted and sad, heartbreaking, that people who think they are fighting for the good of the world are actually empowering evil.

    I’m not used to working from noon to eleventy P.M.

    I’m used to working from 0-dark-30 until 5 or 6 P.M., and going to bed at 10.

    A dinner restaurant is a whole different animal. A new young lady started in the kitchen today. Very professional. She thought I’d been there for a long time. No ma’am, this is my second day here. Great crew today, just 4 of us. FOH crew was impressed. Chef is assembling a team of actual adults who care about quality: of time spent on the clock, of behavior, and of product.

    It’s exhilarating. Met the bossman today. Shook my hand and said two words, “Thank you.”
