Hillary Clinton: The Sore Loser Tour

From National Review: "Hillary Clinton reverted to a familiar pattern in attempting to explain her 2016 election loss during a speaking event over the weekend, arguing that Trump won white women because of their tendency to vote according to the preferences of their male family members and professional superiors. Democrats 'do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married white women and part of that is an identification with the Republican party and an ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,' Clinton argued at the conference in Mumbai, India."  Where does she get this stuff from?

Richard Nixon, who knew about losing, said, "You've got to learn to survive a defeat. That's when you develop character."  She hasn't developed it yet, and making excuses in a foreign country certainly won't help.

Farbissener Farrakhan

Louis Farrakhan is back in the news, this time claiming that we Jews control the FBI.  This career anti-Semite is now 84 years old, and you'd think by now he could find something else to talk about, like Social Security or old age pensions. Let's just hope that when he finally does see those "divine spaceships", they will all be manned by Jews!

Morons and the Matzoh Factory

Here's some Passover tsouris that just infuriated me when I read about it.  "Several dozen residents of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, are demonstrating this week against the Satmar community and its Matzah factory, which they say is causing severe air pollution that harms their health and quality of life.  With Passover only three weeks away, Satmar's matzah factory is working diligently to provide the ultra-Orthodox community of Brooklyn and the surrounding area with strictly kosher matzah (hand-baked unleavened bread), but the non-Jewish residents of the neighborhood have voiced serious complaints." 

How's this for petty whining?  This has to be a first: blaming the Jews for matzoh-related pollution!

Oh Man!

Oh brother! The speech police are at it again: "Purdue: ‘Avoid’Words with ‘Man’ in Them".  Katherine Timpf reports:  "A writing guide at Purdue University advises students to avoid words with 'man' in them — such as 'mailman' and 'mankind'— in order to write 'in a non-sexist, non-biased way.'"

It's not a non-biased way, it's an unnatural way! I have never uttered the word "chairperson" and never will. These fools might be offended by a normal, inoffensive word, but most of us are not. They really must hate men to make this nonsense such a priority.

How To Stop Enabling Mass Killings

This 2015 Vox piece by German Lopez was linked to at Free Republic today: "Mass shooters want fame. Here's why we should stop giving it to them." Evidently, nobody at the networks, at the newspapers, and on social media has heeded the wise advice that was given, because ratings seem to be more important than common sense.

Another "Troubled Youth"

"Parkland high school shooting: At least 14 'victims,' some dead, suspect in custody, Florida sheriff says." Here we go again! Already I have heard this murderer referred to as a "troubled youth", and I'm sure once again we will have to hear all about his life story nonstop on TV. While he gets the attention and glory he seeks, his victims lie dead.  As I always wonder after killing sprees like this, if he was so troubled, why didn't he just kill himself?
