Seen at Insty, from Richard Fernandez:
I’m sorry, but when my soccer team has just suffered a 3-2 loss because the ref’s son was playing for the other side and he unjustly awarded them two penalties in the last three minutes of play, I’m not going to claim that we had the moral victory.
A loss is a fucking loss, and what we have to do is figure out how to live with the consequences. Wretchard goes on to explain:
I hate to say it, but the Left absolutely loves Communist China, so as far as they are concerned, China are the good guys and losing to them is part of their program (see: Obama and the Muslims in the Middle East).
Our economy is going to tank because at the slightest whiff of the next Chinkvirus outbreak, Comrades Biden/Harris are going to lock us down like Gauleiter Gretchen Whitmer tried to do in Michigan — once again, not a problem for the Left because they thrive on the population living in common misery — and we should always remember that the Left has no interest in outcomes, only intentions.
What I’m waiting for is for Gruppenfuehrer Beto O’Rourke’s sturmtruppen to come knocking at my door to confiscate my guns.
So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the range.
Update: from Reader Mike L comes this:
I am from Massachusetts. Starting this coming Friday, the “Republican” Governor here, Charlie Baker (he is a closeted Democrat) has a new Covid Executive order.
- You may not leave your home between 10 PM and 5 AM unless it’s for food, work or medicine. I guess the Covid is more dangerous between 10 as 5 according to this clown?
- you must wear a mask OUTSIDE even with No one around
- you must wear a mask in a car or in a house if you visit someone who doesn’t live with you in your household.
Looks like they’re not even going to wait until February.
As observed in November 2020:
- At least half of the population seems to be okay with living under a socialist government.
- It doesn’t matter if you hold huge rallies for thousands of exuberant followers; unless their pickup trucks are also loaded with thousands of fraudulent ballots, you’re still going to lose.
- Some conservatives still vote for the Libertarian Party, proving that the Left doesn’t have a monopoly on stupid ivory-tower idealists with an impractical, doomed-to-fail ideology.
Feel free to add the things you’ve learned, in Comments.
Friend: “Hey, buddy! Whatcha doin’?”
Me: “Not much. Just looking around for a decent hill to die on.”
Friend: “Same here.”
Nothing from me until this farce is over.
…that the Clinton Crime Family wasn’t always up to its ears in corruption and criminal activity. From someone who was there:
Birkenfeld, who years ago made a series of disclosures about American clients of UBS Group AG who evaded hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes in the United States thanks to Swiss bank secrecy arrangements, told The Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp in an interview that members of the Obama administration cut a deal with UBS that led to the bank paying a settlement of $780 million and only having to divulge the names of around 4,700 out of some 19,000 tax evaders.
He claimed that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “criminally complicit” for her actions in brokering an agreement between Swiss authorities and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the case against UBS, which led to a deferred prosecution agreement on charges of criminal fraud.
“Not only was Hillary Clinton criminally complicit, she… why would the Secretary of State be involved in an international criminal investigation? That’s your first question. The second question is, when there were 19,000 accounts that I handed over to the government, why did Hillary Clinton only settle for 4,700 accounts? That’s a 75 percent failure rate,” Birkenfeld said.
I have no idea what’s involved with all this, but I would put some serious money on a number of wealthy Clinton and Obama supporters (and the Clintons themselves) being among the tax evaders who escaped justice. It is precisely this kind of thing that they specialized in, whether when Billy-boy was POTUS or when their surrogate Comrade Urkel was running the show or when, as above, Her Filthiness was SecState [some overlap].
From Issues & Insights:
Today’s Democrats are defined by policy choices and actions that are not consistent with liberty and independence. They are the party of:
- A coup attempt.
- Re-education camps.
- Segregation (through its support for Black Lives Matter and racially divisive policies in higher learning).
- Marxist indulgence. (see BLM again).
- Election fraud.
- Using government to punish political enemies.
- A modern serfdom.
- The cancel culture.
- A job-destroying $15 minimum wage
- Dependence on government.
- Campus and workplace speech codes.
- Crackdowns on dissenting political views.
- Apologies for America being America.
- Coastal elitism.
- Crony capitalism.
- Miserable health care.
- More bureaucracy.
- Second Amendment infringements.
- Mandated masks.
- Nags, scolds, and shrill ideologues.
- Court packing.
- Smothering regulations.
The Democrats’ plans also include robbing workers of their freedom; dictating Americans’ choice of automobiles; forcing on the country a crackpot green energy plan that will severely damage the economy while providing zero environmental benefits; transforming the country into a socialist “paradise”; and establishing single-party governance.
It’s not only what they plan on doing; some of the above is what they’ve already done, and if not stopped, will carry on, and more besides. You all know what to do; if you haven’t already done it, get out and vote against these miserable asshole Marxist motherfuckers.
