Leader of the Free World



The sad part is, I don't know if the USA deserves a leader like Netanyahu.

By the by

Every single media talking head who is trying to brush Hillary's email crimes under the rug needs to be run down and hounded into leaving journalism forever.

They don't feel any shame, since they haven't actually been "journalists" for decades now.  So we can't shame them.  We simply have to make it impossible for them to do their jobs without conservatives pointing out that they are nothing but dishonest political hacks who cannot be trusted to tell the truth.  Period.

Milestones

So, tomorrow I re-enlist for the last time.  Ever.  This is the big Indefinite.

Holy moly.

Had you told me twenty years ago that this was going to happen, I would have laughed in your face.

Saw it on Twitter

The Leader of the Free World is preparing for his speech before Congress.

Obama, on the other hand, is sulking and throwing a pissy-fit before going out golfing.

Whereupon I get cruel

A not-so-young lady writes in The Guardian about how middle-aged men only look at younger women, and laments about how middle aged women such as herself are put out to pasture.

I spoke to my friend Jack about this. 
“Men online are the same,” I told him. “They say they’re after true love but really what they’re after is the 25-year-olds.” 
“Maybe they think they can have both,” Jack said. 
“You’re not like that, though, are you? Given a choice, you’d pick the older, more interesting woman, the passionate, well-read, intrepid, low-maintenance woman.” 
“Nice of you to think so,” Jack said. “But I’d go for the firm arse and tits, always, without question.”

This is what modern feminism has wrought, ladies and gentlemen.  By stipulation that women are just like men, and women need to be treated just like men, we now treat you...

Just like men.

And that means, ladies, that you need to bring something to the table.  Something that we don't have. And that's a firm arse and tits.  Because a modern woman in middle age just doesn't bring much to the table with them, other than baggage and someone else's children.  And quite frankly, by the time men hit middle age, we're done dealing with other people's problems for the most part.  We don't need you and your emotional baggage and kids from some other guy that we're supposed to be a father to.

Now, and old fashioned woman who can turn a house into a home?  Who can be there to support a man when he brings home the bacon?  That's another story entirely, isn't it?

Now, for those who want to come in and screech "Well what do middle aged men bring to the table?" Start with the fact that most middle-aged men are actually in the peak of their earning years.  They're risen high enough to make good money, but they're not so old that they've got one foot out the door.  Most of them have the ability to support that young, hot thing on their arm in a rather comfortable fashion.

Thems the facts, folks.

Come see the Left's idea of "fair".

"Bonuses" and "Penalties" on test scores.  It's not enough to try to lift up one group, they have to punish another for the sin of doing well.

Lee’s next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant’s race is worth. She points to the first column. African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says. 
She points to the second column. “Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.” 
The last column draws gasps. Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission. “Do Asians need higher test scores? Is it harder for Asians to get into college? The answer is yes,” Lee says. 
Zenme keyi,” one mother hisses in Chinese. How can this be possible?

Socialism is based on envy.  Envy is a deep rooted sin, and as someone else wiser than me pointed out a while ago, it is the only one of the Seven Deadly Sins that doesn't give you any kind of gratification back.  It's a thorn-bush that tears out your heart.

And in their envious ways, the Left attacks the people for DOING WELL ON A TEST.  And so it goes with all envious groups.

A person consumed with envy cannot be happy while someone else achieves success.  A person consumed with envy will tear down other people in order to make themselves feel better.  A person consumed with envy will tear down everyone and make sure everyone is miserable rather than rejoice in someone's success.

This is the sin that Leftists base much of their actions on, and it never, ever bears good fruit.
