Peccable reflections

This is offered to assist with your social graces. Some of you may have experienced one or more of these problems. Watch for the warning signs if you can.

Alcohol Warning Labels

If the government really wants to help they should put useful warning labels on products. For instance alcohol should come with labels warning consumers of these unintended side effects:

1. The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what the hell happened to your bra.

2. The consumption of alcohol may make you think you are whispering when you are not.

3. The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in dancing like a retard.

4. The consumption of alcohol may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them.

5. The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can sing.

6. The consumption of alcohol may lead you to believe that ex-lovers are really dying for you to telephone them at four in the morning.

7. The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can logically converse with other members of the opposite sex without spitting.

8. The consumption of alcohol may make you think you have mystical Kung Fu powers, resulting in you getting your ass kicked.

9. The consumption of alcohol may cause you to roll over in the morning and see something really scary.

10. The consumption of alcohol is the leading cause of inexplicable rug burns on the forehead.

11. The consumption of alcohol may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.

12. The consumption of alcohol may lead you to believe you are invisible.

13. The consumption of alcohol may lead you to think people are laughing WITH you.

14. The consumption of alcohol may cause a disturbance in the time-space continuum, whereby gaps of time may seem to literally disappear.

Illegal Immigration

The ongoing ‘Charlie Foxtrot’ in the halls of Congress should cause wonder and concern that this Country, America, is actually governable.

Emergencies in Perspective…from Rico

I’m certain the MSM and the Democrats (C) will be certain to provide a calm, logical, and factual perspective on the just declared “emergency”…hahahahaha, just kidding!
– They will, as a matter of course, lie their collective Communist asses off shamelessly, expecting the ignorati to swallow the lies of the ingnoranuses.

It’s a matter of perspective, and when your purpose is to harm America…then you look at things entirely differently than if you purpose is to defend and protect America.
– What is a desirable ‘feature’ to the former, is a ‘bug’ to be shunned to the latter.

Here is a good comparison of how recent Presidents pre-Trump perceived emergencies.
– This in itself should give you a pretty good indication that the histrionics, alligator tears, gnashing of teeth, and rending of political garments the world will now be subjected to by the drama queens of the Left is pure, unadulterated, bovine excrement.poi

Ponder this

A free press can, of course, be good or bad, but, most certainly without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad.

Humor

Maurice shows up at his favorite watering hole with a glum look on his face, sits down at the bar and orders a beer.

“What’s the matter Maurice, why so down and out? queries the bartender.

“Oh hell, I’ve had this fear of monsters under the bed since I was a kid.” I found a shrink that says he can rid me of this, but it is going to cost me $200 an hour and will take maybe four months.” “I can’t afford those rates.”

“I can help cure that and it won’t take four months nor cost $200 an hour” the bar keep told Maurice.

“Really?’ replied Maurice. “That would be wonderful. How can you do that.”

“Cut the legs off the bed”, said the barkeep.

Feminist Attacks Pro-Trans Twitter as a ‘Boys Club’

Last year, Twitter permanently banned the feminist journalist Meghan Murphy for tweets disagreeing with transgender identity. She’s suing. Ironically, Twitter issued the final ban for a tweet referring to a man as a man, even though he presented as male on social media at the time. Murphy has slammed Twitter as “sexist,” and her lawyer agreed that the company seems to act like a “boys club.”

“We don’t know who’s making the decisions here, but with respect to her speech, it does seem to be a boys club,” Noah Peters, one of Murphy’s lawyers, told PJ Media on Wednesday. (Supporters can donate to the legal fund here.)

Last December, Murphy wrote an article about her suspension and Twitter’s alleged sexism. She recalled receiving “numerous, explicit violent threats,” which the company refused to take down. “I have been told to ‘shut up and die,’ to ‘choke,’ to ‘commit suicide,’ and so on and so forth,” she wrote. “All of these tweets, which seem to very clearly fit within the definition of ‘abusive tweets,’ were lobbed my way attached to the word ‘TERF,’ which, as most of you know, is a term used to smear and denigrate those who question transgender ideology.”

“Indeed, it is a term primarily aimed at women, only used in the pejorative, with the intentional purpose of bullying the target and damaging their reputation. That is to say, it inarguably fits the definition of a slur,” Murphy noted.

Yet it seems Twitter did more than just allow slurs and incitements of violence against Murphy. Jonathan Yaniv — who occasionally identifies himself as “Jennifer” — bragged about getting Murphy suspended, and called for her to be charged with hate crimes under Canadian law. Her crime? Opposing transgender identity on Twitter by saying, “Men are not women” and “Trans women are not women.” [snip]

Sit back and enjoy yourself as the Left attacks their protected identities for any and all transgressions.

Observations

Starting with LBJ’s misnamed “Great Society”, America and Americans have become less educated more indoctrinated into a socialist world.

With some exceptions, each current crop of ‘students’ knows less history, civics, math and grammar. The worse aspect of this is that each class of grads produces teachers who are less versed in the aforementioned subjects. It is difficult to teach by staying one page ahead of your class.

The result of this debacle is the following.

D’oh: Only 1 state passes US citizenship test, DC fails big

A majority in every state except Vermont has failed the U.S. Citizenship test, the latest sign that Americans aren’t very good history students.

In the multiple choice version of the test given to immigrants seeking citizenship, 53 percent of Vermonters passed.

More than half of those in every other state failed, and in Washington, D.C., 58 percent failed, said the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, which does the survey.

Only one-in-four nationally passed the 20-questions.

In its latest test, the Foundation said that 15 percent of adults knew the year the Constitution was written and only 25 percent knew how many amendments there are.

Also, of 41,000 quizzed, 25 percent did not know that freedom of speech was guaranteed under the First Amendment, and 57 percent did not know that Woodrow Wilson was the commander in chief during World War I.

The top states were Vermont are Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, and Virginia. At the bottom were Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Louisiana.

The Foundation is a leading group pushing for better history education. It has launched a new initiative to make learning history easier and fun.

And just time time.

“Among all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Vermonters were the sole group able to pass the multiple-choice test. Even more disturbing, only 27 percent of those under the age of 45 nationally were able to demonstrate a basic understanding of American history. Nationally, only four in 10 Americans passed the exam,” said the group.

“Unfortunately, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation has validated what studies have shown for a century: Americans don’t possess the history knowledge they need to be informed and engaged citizens,” said Foundation President Arthur Levine.

Isn’t this just swell stuff? At some point this will collapse into “Idioracy”.
