Busybodies Think You Eat Too Much Red Meat

While it may not be part of the Democratic Platform, there are way too many Democrats that want to control what you eat. But’s no longer about saving you from you, it’s about saving the planet from you.

When Democrats Support Violence

From a couple days ago: AOC, Pressley vow to help pay bail for counterprotesters arrested at ‘Straight Pride’ parade

Wow. For a short article, there’s a lot to unpack here.

So what we have here is a parade set up by people who oppose same-sex “marriage.” The event was legal, protected by the Constitution, and most likely planned as a peaceful event. The goal was to “to celebrate traditional families and defend heterosexuality.”

The Left, as usual, went berserk.

Apparently the group was outnumbered by thousands of protesters, some of which were, admittedly, members of the terrorist organization Antifa:

“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” Jon Crowley, a self-identified Antifa member, told the Boston Herald while at Saturday’s parade. He added that he believes violence is the only way deal with the “Straight Pride” marchers, saying: “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”

So, these guys showed up with the intention to attack–the intention to commit violence against–a peaceful, legal, Constitutionally protected group of marchers. Yet, they’re the “facists.”

When it was over with, 36 counterprotesters had been arrested, including:

Nine of the counterprotesters arrested have been charged with assaulting police officers

In repsonse to the violence brought by the counterprotesters, and their arrests, a fundraiser has been set up in the aptly Leftist name: Solidarity Against Hate Legal Defense Fund. The term solidarity has a nice communist sound, and the fight against hate, is well… like many Leftist terms, adapted to mean whatever they want, instead of taking the time to discern between disagreement and actual hate.

So, if this doesn’t sound like a mess already, it actually gets better. Two elected U.S. Representatives have supported the fundraiser: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

“One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade?” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter, sharing a link to the fund. “Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.”

In other words, these two Representatives are supporting “activists” who assaulted citizens who have a right to assemble and police officers. These two Representatives have come out in support of violence against those they deem are a threat to the community. And the threat? Disagreeing with the Leftist worldview.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez characterized the event as a “white supremacist parade,” and that the Boston community was in need of protection from this group. What did the community need to be protected from? Were they parading through the street hurling sexist, racist, and “homophobic” slurs at bystanders? Were they attacking members of the community? Probably not. The community needed to be protected from the “hate” of a message that was different from their own: an opposing view.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. characterized the event as a “#LGBT hate march” in a tweet of her own. Jon Crowley, of Antifa, described them as facists and admitted that the only way to “get them to shut up” was to attack them.

The violence perpetrated by the Left is beginning to grow, and it’s becoming acceptable. It’s scary to think that members of the U.S. House of Representatives find it acceptable, and that members of this country have actually cast votes supporting them. What’s even scarier is that their behavior hasn’t been condemned by the broader Democratic party. C’mon America. We can do better than that. No More Democrats.

Transgender Regret Gets Its Day In Court

When I first educated myself about the trasgender issue, I had read about the term transgender regret. Obviously, it refers to transgender people who regret making the decision to transition. This is something we hear little about in the media because:

The transgender lobby actively polices and suppresses discussion of sex-change regret, and claims it’s rare (no more than “5 percent.”) However, if you do decide to “de-transition” to once again identify with the sex in your DNA, talking about it will get you targeted by trans activists [1].

But now these people are apparently going to be heard on one of the most important stages in the country: The U.S. Supreme Court. Nicole Russell sums up the brief that’s being presented here. The article contains a lot of stuff that you don’t hear in the mainstream media from actual people who have actually transitioned and found that it’s not as great as the Left makes it out to be.

For starters, each of these people now believes, due to counseling, therapy, and personal experiences, that there is no such thing as gender fluidity or transgender. They now believe it is a fantasy many people try to make real [2].

Imagine that. The mainstream media pushing a fantasy. Dare I say lie?

Your Crushing Student Debt; Your Sob Story

Margot Cleveland, at the Federalist, writes:

Tell me your sob stories from age 12 on, not what you can’t do now, but what you couldn’t do then. Tell what you had to do then and through college to avoid what is now, to you, crushing student debt.

In short, she asks what things you did, or didn’t do to avoid, or minimize that crushing student you have. They’re great questions.

And that’s the thing that gets me. This crushing student debt you speak of can’t be a surprise. College has never been cheap, and it’s only been getting more expensive every year, and now that you have your degree, you’re concerned about the debt that you took on. You were not forced to sign on the dotted line every year; you signed willingly to take the classes that you took, but now you don’t want to pay for them. Now that you have that piece of paper you yearned for, you want someone else to pay for your dream.

I have to tell you, I don’t care about your debt. You willingly took it on, and you should willingly pay for it. Like most people, I struggle to pay my own bills, but somehow you think I should pay yours too?

The only thing making the student debt crisis a crisis, is the fact that students who signed up for the debt, don’t want to take resposibility for the debt. Personally, I don’t believe there is a crisis. The economy isn’t going to collapse if these people can’t achieve their dreams because of the burden they believe they’ve somehow been tricked into. I say tricked because, how else do they explain the debt they’ve unwittingly found themselves in? It’s a crisis manufactured by the Left, and the government needs to stay away from of it.

Never Walk Alone

From Megadeth’s album United Abominations, released in 2007. A little bit of Dave’s Christianity peeking through?

When you feel that something’s wrong
I’ll shelter you and keep you warm
I’ll never let you walk alone
I loved you when you still hated me

I’m coming and it won’t be long
Time to reap what I have sown
Never ever let you walk alone
I know your enemy, it once was me

Moving Problems Solved

So, a couple months ago, I moved back to WordPress, but I pointed out that I wasn’t happy with it. I also pointed out that I would probably wind up changing things up again: it didn’t take long. I wrote that one post and was already looking for alternatives.

I think I’ve found it using Emacs, Hugo, and Netlify.

I’ve created the blog design from the ground up, so there’ll be plenty of tweaking along the way, but I’ve gotten it to do what I want it to do, and it works into the direction of writing I’ve been going in, so my workflow is just going to flow better. In the long run, things are going to be simpler, and hopefully, faster from idea to post.

Moving Problems

I moved away from WordPress because I wasn’t happy with the platform. I had spent years tweaking this and that, but was never quite happy with it, so a couple of months ago I moved to another platform. While it solved a lot of issues I was having, others opened up.

So, I’m back at WordPress, but for some reason the transition back hasn’t gone as smoothly as the transition away.

I don’t know what the lesson it. Be happy with what you have? I don’t know. I’ll probably wind up moving again in the future because that’s the way I am.

Men Invade the Women's Locker Room

Over at Daily Signal: Men Already Enter the Women’s Locker Room at My Local Pool. Now Congress Could Make It Worse.

A naked man walking around the women’s locker room was seen peeping at a girl inside one of the shower stalls.

This, alone, is enough to segregate bathrooms by biological sex and arrest anyone who doesn’t fit the description. I wrote extensively about this topic here.

Two Women Talk About Abortion

I’ve been anti-abortion for years, and I wrote my first article, Life, Part 1, back in 2008. I have a little different take on it than most people in that I believe it’s not life that begins at conception, but a new individual.

But I’m a guy, and supposedly I’m not supposed to be able to talk about it, but I don’t care. I talk about it anyway because truth isn’t sexist. For the sake of argument, 50% of those human beings aborted are boys which in my opinion, means I get to talk.

But for this, I’m going to shut up and let two women talk about their experience. Both of these women admit to having, not one, but two abortions and both found it devastating when they found out what Leftists don’t want you to know. They found it devastating when they found out the truth.

Patti J. Smith at Daily Signal:

I was scared, confused, and felt I had no other options. I fell for the pro-abort rhetoric that it was my body, my choice, and that I was doing the right thing.

Nobody told me the truth.

And the truth?

Abortion hurts women. Not only does it kill an innocent baby, but it also ends the normalcy of a woman’s life, as indicated in my story as well as the stories of countless others.

Moreover, as to choice being empowering, that’s just another lie. Empowerment allows a woman to be comfortable in her skin, confident and at peace. Once a woman has an abortion, empowerment slowly slips away, leaving nothing but a gaping wound in her soul only to be backfilled with pain, self-hatred, guilt, shame, and remorse.

Leslie Dean at Daily Signal:

One young 16–year-old told me, “The baby’s heartbeat is so much faster than mine! It has its own heartbeat, separate from me! So it’s not my body, it’s his! I would be getting rid of him!”

Pretty profound wisdom for a teenager.

This is why women need to know the truth. They deserve to make an informed decision about such a consequential thing. They deserve the facts—not pro-choice talking points that are riddled with lies and deceptions. They deserve the whole truth.

And a woman’s perspective on exceptions?

There are, of course, those who throw out the argument of rape: “Should a woman have to birth her child if she’s been raped?” To that I respond: Why should a woman suffer an act of violence twice? Abortion is an act of violence, too. And for an abortion to be successful, someone has to die.
