There’s Some Dispute

Posted in Politics on March 26th, 2015

Dick Cheney, in an interview published in Playboy, called Obama “the worst president in my lifetime,” and that his damaging legacy will endure.

Not all agree with Cheney on this statementObama Is The Worst President Ever?

That was most certainly a boldly blunt assertion by Mr. Cheney and certain to be inflammatory. It’s definitely a statement that a large number would vehemently dispute. Only Americans and their traditional allies think so pooryl of Obama. Our enemies, both foreign and domestic think otherwise.

Works For Who Exactly?

But just who is it working for?
ObamaCare Is Works For Who Exactly?

Obama periodically likes to claim that the ACA aka ObamaCare is working. My question, given its near universal unpopularity as a whole, constant “issues,” and the plethora of special exemptions from- and delays in its various, convoluted provisions and edicts, is just who is it working for.

Perhaps the boy, whenever he says that ObamaCare is working, means for the thousands of new IRS agents it called for. They’re the only ones that seem to be benefiting from it.

Intersectional Conflict

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on March 21st, 2015

Intersectionality is a big thing to many interest groups seeking special privileges and protections. It is most important to the modern Feminists, which is unsurprising since the modern interpretation of this sociopolitical shibboleth was concocted by Kimberlé Crenshaw, Black Feminist.

Intersectionality

Function: noun

Date: 1989

Definition(s):

  1. The interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, disability, sexuality, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage
  2. A term used in feminist discourse to mean “I may drag all my issues into every discussion”
  3. A means by which special interest agendists can attempt to broaden the power base.
  4. A way for White agendists to claim oppression without feeling like their detracting from the oppression they’ve assigned to Blacks.
  5. A methodology of making any issue too complex to be resolved, thus keeping academic theorists in a job

Of course, while very important to these groups, intersectionality does cause them both internal and external conflict. This results in the inevitable rounds of Whitesplaining, Bourgesplaining, and other types of -Splaining to avoid the label of racism or racial insensitivity.

Hands Up! Don’t Shoot The Free Nipple?

See the issue above? The intersectionality of the idiotic Free The Nipple pseudo-movement of the Feminists and the lie-based meme of Hands Up, Don’t Shoot of Blacks, is bound to cause conflict within those respective groups of self-professed victims. ;-)
