Poor Razzle. That's most of his life, he spent lost.
Biden is clearly a would-be dictator who is seeing a dangerous level of success in meeting his goals. Given that Harris is his likely successor and she's an obvious sociopath, we should be worried about this. But who will be?
If you still live in a city, look around and see how much support these two are getting from your neighbors. A lot of you seem to have been thinking that when some of us have said that the time has come to abandon the cities, that this would be a permanent response to a temporary nuisance - the lockdowns. No, the problem is that most of the people living in major cities have as little regard for individual rights as Biden and Harris do. That is a cultural reality that isn't going to go away, and it's going to have some severe historical consequences. Freedom can't survive in places where most of the people don't really believe in it.
The truly troubling thing about what has happened so far is not how severe the repression has been, but how casually it has been embraced, both by those in power and by their supposed urban electorate, which has accepted the denial of basic civil liberties in response to a threat that is largely confined to their own imaginations, and is there, in part, because media outlets decided to run with a sensationalist story for the sake of ratings. If they'll gladly surrender their freedom for nonsense like this, when won't they surrender it?
One should flee the cities, if one isn't a boot licker or a would-be despot, not just because of the lockdowns, but because of what will surely come after them.
There are conservatives who have pushed for this, at a time when they know how many people can't pay rent because the lockdowns shut down their businesses (eg. the people with the Blaze).
This is one of the reasons why a senile despot like Biden can find support. Nobody is going to vote for his own eviction, anywhere, especially in a place where there are gangs of psychopaths that prey on the homeless. When the full response to that concern, one caused by the government's own polices, is something along the lines of "s**ks to be you, the investor class comes first," one shouldn't be too surprised to see people turning on one.
If that basic bit of common sense makes me a socialist in the eyes of some of those here, so be it. They'll be wrong, but like "racist," "socialist" is just a word and a frequently misapplied one at that. Nobody should be deterred from saying anything by it.
The judge needs to pay a personal price for what he did, and everybody can help with this without breaking even a single law. In the past, when people did scummy things like this, they we punished by society in a very traditional way. They were shunned. Nobody would talk to them, or acknowledge their existence any more than they had to.
A decade of that can teach humility to even the haughtiest of us.
Facebook was shady from day one, so no surprise there.
To convince or to pressure? If I say "not interested, go away," are they going to accept that and go away, or am I going to be harassed?
I have to wonder.
Having seen Chicago's "finest" in action, before, I'm not inclined to feel bad for the cops. Even before Covid, I routinely saw them disperse crowds that really were peaceful.
Washington Park is a bad place, but if people there were pushing back against the Chicago nanny state, I don't really have a problem with that.
This is outrageous. A woman in her late 30s is being told that she isn't allowed to have children, because her daddy disapproves.
The court system has gotten too big for its britches.
Original story here
in the Times of Israel. It would appear to be legitimate.
Pure cringe, but legitimate. This is a beautiful example of one reason why I like not being Jewish. I'm not saying that all Jews are bad people, but as an American of European descent, I do not see even a hair fraction of the pressure my Jewish friends see when they refuse to support SJW nonsense. Some cultures are just more pleasant to live in than others.
