And In Neverland…

Posted in Religion, Society on July 31st, 2016

A role reversal that will never, ever happen except in Neverland
And In Neverland…

And in Neverland, that faraway place where fantasy becomes its own reality, Muslims undertake apologetics to ensure that Christians aren’t held to blame for “radicals” of their faith adhering to its doctrine and waging a violent crusade against Muslims. But what happens in Neverland stays in Neverland; this would never happen in our reality.

Not only is it an odd fact that Christians just don’t wage religious wars anymore – even when an enemy cult has declared a genocidal war against them – but you’d never find Muslims that would make excuses for them if Christian actually did so.

Well, Hillary gave her acceptance speech as the Democrats’ Nominee for the 2016 presidential election. It pretty much sounded like any other of the times she’s spoken in public.

Controlled Bern

Posted in 2016 Election, Humor on July 28th, 2016

I really thought we were largely done with Bernie and would only have to hear about the “hijinks” of the #BernOuts and #Sandernistas as the rebelled at Democrat orthodoxy, i.e., Hillary Clinton, the Chosen Cunt. I was, however, wrong. It’s seem old Bernie has been “gotten to” and is now being used to put out the very fire he started.

The Democrats have always been good at fire control though, so this shouldn’t be as odd as it is. Still, Bernie’s flip is shocking in its rapidity and extremity as he turned against his own followers and everything they were indoctrinated to believe in.

I’ve got to give Hillary and DNC credit though for efficiency and efficacy though. Using a Controlled Bern as a Suppression Fire to starve out the very wildfire he created within the Democrats’ rank and file when they were afraid that fire would overrun Hillary’s firebreak aka the DNC is possessed of a terrible elegance.
