Need A New Drug?


Need A New Drug?

Yeah, that’s about right. If Big Pharma decided to get into the medical marijuana marketspace – oh, and they will once a certain critical mass has been reached – this is so the type of television commercials we’d be seeing.

A Grim, Repugnant Truth

A Grim, Repugnant Truth

The NRA’s latest ad, “The Violence Of Lies” is equally grim and repugnant but the state our nation is such that the truth is equally grim and repugnant. Hence, the ad is a needful thing despite it not being what anyone wants to hear, much less think about because it is speaking that grim, repugnant truth.

The Violence Of Lies

They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance.

All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia. To smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law-abiding — until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness.

And when that happens, they’ll use it as an excuse for their outrage. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom, is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I’m the National Rifle Association of America, and I’m freedom’s safest place.

All that is stated in “The Violence Of Lies” has happened, continues to happen, and will likely escalate to this very day. Actually, it’s already escalated since this video was filmed in April with a Liberals’ attempted mass assassination of Republican Congressmen.

The Responses Proof Their Truth

The Left’s responses to the ad are the most telling though. Those responses, especially from the rank and file who don’t have to worry much about what they say, prove the NRA’s point.

  • They described it as a call to violence to protect White supremacy.
  • They fixated on the speaker, Dana Loesch being a White woman
  • They likened it to both Nazi and ISIS propaganda
  • They described the NRA as both a hate group and as terrorists

And those were just the general tenor on the Liberals’ and Progressives’ direct responses about the NRA itself. Their more generalized responses against what they saw the ad as endorsing were far more telling. They described it as NRA legitimizing and promoting:

  • An all White America or, failing that, an America where only Whites have rights and power;
  • An America where only “extremist” evangelical Christians are legitimate;
  • An America where the poor, the less able, the disabled, the mentally ill, the “not ambitious enough,” are left to die;
  • An America in which women know their place and follow orders and take what they are given and act happy about it;

Yes, what make the responses to telling and so proving of the truth of the NRA’s ad is that they flat-out screamed that NRA’s target audience was steeped in racism, sexism, xenophobia, and homophobia. And they combined it with references to hate groups, terrorism, and Nazis.

Jus ad bellum

Despite the Left’s rhetoric to contrary, it’s hard to think of this as “sinister propaganda” when so much of what is yelled by swaths of Liberals and Progressives, and the Democrat politicians they vote for, consistently paint so many of us in America as horrifically evil monsters that must be defeated. This is especially true when they combine it with existential threats, e.g., “people will die,” and consistent repetition of how we’re fascists or Nazis.

After all, supposedly these Liberals and Progressives are good people fighting for what is right and for the sake of the “oppressed peoples” of America. All one has to do is think of the good people of Union in 1861 or the American people in WW2 to how that sort of thing can so easily go.

That, not this ad, is a call for violence and civil war. That is declaring that the Liberals and Progressives have Jus ad Bellum. Hence, it’s fair to say that this ad is more of a wake up call than propaganda meant to spur violence.

Perception Is Everything

Perception Is EverythingPerception Is Everything

Yep! These ever-so-angry and ever-so-prideful Liberals and Progressives think a lot about themselves because they’re “resisting” President Trump. What they’re too deluded and self-absorbed to understand is that they’ve woefully and rather comically failed at marketing their message.

In the algorithm of infonomics, perception is everything and Americans, when we see or hear these Liberals and Progressives complaining, ranting, screaming, and protesting, we don’t perceive them and what they’re as what they perceive themselves to be doing.

There is, however some danger in this. While the vast majority of these deranged individuals are mostly harmless crybabies – crybullies at most – some number of them are dangerous. Americans should never let even well-deserved disrespect cloud their judgement and threat assessments.

Who Wore It Best?

Who Wore It Best?
Who Wore It Best?

That Iconic outfit. Who wore it best – North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, Fiction’s Dr. Evil, or Hillary Clinton?

Now normally I wouldn’t bother posting this even as a joke. Fashion sense is hardly a decent metric for determining a person’s qualification for political office. However, just like all political candidates, Hillary’s wardrobe is part of her marketing and is made up of deliberate choices intended to identify and iconify her brand. Hence, her trend to choose variations of this particular outfit does have some significance and does raise some serious questions about her and her followers.

Again, whatever Clinton wears is a deliberate, controlled choice meant to project the image she and her campaign think will resonate with her likely voters. What does it say that she chooses an outfit most associated with dictators and would-be dictators?

So, Citi Bike

I’ve always been against Citi Bike, at least in NYC. To me, it just seemed to be yet another part of Mayor Bloomberg’s hate for- and attack upon drivers. Yet, it wouldn’t have taken that much to change my opinion.

Citi Bike
So, Citi Bike

Truly! It wouldn’t have taken much thought on the part of some marketing firm to come up with ways to get me and a lot of others to have a more positive attitude towards Citi Bike’s bike rental program. 😉
