one of the Conservative movement’s most well known ladies, Katie Pavlich Reminds me of fellow ten/eleven yr.-olds (many yrs. ago) who had been firmly instructed that an adult female human was not to be called a "woman" but a "lady." This lead to seeing naked "ladies" if anyone found an older brother's copy of Playboy. Not the usage intended by the language enforcers, I suspect.

"What Small-Town Heartland America would be like if 10% of the population just up and disappeared ..." Better, but could still be improved? As a non-HBO eleitiest [sic] is the show Rapture-specific or just another silly idea?

They've gerrymandered themselves into irrelevance. Or will.

Disheartening, but it's a rare & unusual sort of mess, I hope.

"Future PE teachers?" Do you get the equivalent of combat pay? And are the Future PE'ers segregated into "special" classes? Lesson learned: I'll never again assume the youth aren't objectively worse than I was some yrs. ago.

St. Nick on a stick, can't the little bastards read the syllabus or whatever & figure (all by themselves, if it isn't too much strain wrapping their lips around every damn syllable) what they might be getting into & what effect it will have on their "comfort zone?"

You can't defy federal law by force of arms. Yeah, except they have so far, by threatened if not actual force. At least these shitheels aren't (quite, I hope) as delusional as the Branch Davidians who more or less hoped for apocalypse.

even when we disagree about politics Here's the problem, C.F.: They aren't talking "politics." Nor are they "disagreeing." They are stating their "eternal" & ab-so-fugging-lutely incontrovertible beliefs, they aren't opening them for discussion, & they want the assistance of the state to shove them down the craws of those who won't go along. The slightest examination of the last 10+ yrs. on the iNternertz (I'm betting a digitally savvy wunderkind like Conor could probably find several hundred million results for right-wing rhetoric & the incessant repetition of same in the face of all evidence, facts, truth & whatnot.) clearly contradict any possibility of "engagement and persuasion." Even the non-"Sky Fairy will torture us in hell for eternity if we don't kill the homos," straight-up political stuff is fantasy: "Benghazi IRS Fast & Furious yada fucking yada." How can one "engage" w/ unicorns & dragons?

One is grateful for the good Dr. Helen's barely rudimentary acquantance with the English language, as it allows us to charitably consider her merely a shit-for-brains clod ... Thank you for that. I went through the last Dr. Helen paragraphlump you pulled three times trying to determine who was forcing what down whose throat & whether this should make me happy or sad. Not having checked the link I didn't know w/ whom you were dealing & was deluded it might somehow made sense. Silly me.

Urban/rural might be closer, 'cept, course, it's all in their heads & doesn't always reflect actual geography. (Silly suburbanites who think they're real cowboy Americans one loaded gun from a Girl Scout home invasion are just one example.) Or (not to dump on free will or anything, you sad sheep) if virtually all political difference is essentially (& merely) tribalism resulting from psychological &/or physiological (giant over-developed mutant amygdala) tendencies, then it's between the scaredy cat pants-pissers & the less frightened who can cope enough to remain comparatively rational & make vague flailing attempts at getting on w/ things.

I can't cite a study for you, but I've read there are few patriots fighting for mom's apple pie in the foxholes. Once combat starts apparently no one is fighting for anything beyond their & their buddies' lives.

Shorter Prager:Anything less than perpetual war would mean that the troops who are already dead have died in vain.Mr. Prager's military service consists of accepting student deferments while in college & then parlaying that into grad school & further deferments. What a patriot!

They just can't keep their knees from jerking (& kicking a hippie in the process) can they? And I see I'm not the only one who noted a certain Swankishness to Scottie Nell's prose/wordsmithery/lexicon/typing.

P.S. (Damn you, TypePad!): Now it's 300,000,000+ people, & not a great fleet but several hundred religious zealots on donkeys threatening them w/ annihilation. No amount of SEALs can save a nation that frightened. And please, twenty-nothing Leah Barkoukis, spare us "a little education on military combat."

Thanks for reminding me of racket. Two-time Medal of Honor awardee Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, U.S.M.C. (ret.): "War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes." The book has significance historically as Butler points out in 1935 that the US is engaging in military war games in the Pacific that are bound to provoke the Japanese. "The Japanese, a proud people, of course will be pleased beyond expression to see the United States fleet so close to Nippon's shores. Even as pleased as would be the residents of California were they to dimly discern through the morning mist, the Japanese fleet playing at war games off Los Angeles." Butler explains that the common rationale for the buildup of the US fleet and the war games is fear that "the great fleet of this supposed enemy will strike suddenly and annihilate 125,000,000 people."

Now The Daily Caller's Education Editor takes a brave stand against the trashing of all that is old & Anglo-Saxon:Modern Language Association’s fascist douchebags outlaw The Daily Caller from convention The Daily Caller has been banned from the convention of the Modern Language Association (MLA), an annual showcase for academic douchebags. TheDC had been looking forward to the four-day hothouse of leftism, which this year will feature a session on a controversial academic boycott of Israel. Sadly, TheDC won’t be able to cover the session because the fascist, Stalinist douchebags at the MLA flatly denied TheDC’s routine request to cover it. “The convention office reviewed you request but will not be issuing media credentials for the Daily Caller,” wrote Mark Aurigemma, the MLA’s press liaison, in an email.Woooo! Scared now?
