Can you stop being offended long enough to watch this roast of Sammy Davis, Jr? Can you laugh along with all the audience and all the people on the dais? Or do you always look for a reason to be offended?

[Update … as the author of the subject blog below attempts to figure out what to do with his site and energies, it has become viewable once again to any of the general public who might be interested. For my own part it served well enough as a warning; as much when it was not available for a few seconds of viewing, as when it occasionally was. It may not be pleasant to watch someone lose what is left of their faculty of reason to the effects of a self-induced mania, but the image, and the lesson, certainly stays with you.]
Down the rabbit hole …
“Therein lies the path to madness”
Our erstwhile commenter John The Liberal, he of the silly hat and still proprietor of American Liberal Times, seems to have embarked on a journey that has finally lead him over the edge. Although we neither comment there any longer, nor attempt to, an occasional glance at the raving political lunacy fulminating from his blog, serves as a healthful reminder to ourselves not to let things get too out of hand; lest we end up like that. Despite his constant pleas for comment, readers of this blog will recollect that John The Liberal not only banned conservative commenters from his blog, but also reported that he went through years of postings in order to purge all trace of their past presence. This does not necessarily mean that he does not himself read conservative blogs, since his postings on his own site often reference and rail against the contemptuous views which conservatives have reportedly displayed both toward him and his product.
Now, unless he is making this up, or is referencing very old comments or newly screened comments he does not allow to post, he is reading conservative comments on conservative blogs.
Yet nursing these grievances is not quite enough. Apparently the mere fact that conservative infidels can see his blog at all is too much insult for John The Liberal to bear. Mr. Hitchcock of this blog, once reported that he was unable to return the favor of John the Liberal’s visit here, because he was peremptorily banned from American Liberal Times blog or filtered out before having even gotten one comment posted. Now, as if to prove that John The Liberal and his loyal crew of vomit eaters need no stinkin’ outsiders at all, John The Liberal, has, and apparently intentionally, banned anyone not previously cleared from even looking at his site.
How “liberal” of him.
Because so many of us have been laughing at it, rather than with the American Liberal Times blog, there might be a kind of perverse logic there. If John The Liberal refuses to give up his morally shameful practices, he will at least hide them from prying eyes.
Just goes to show what self-abuse leads to ultimately …

Back when we had control of the northern half of it, we should’ve annexed it then. But we didn’t, and we’ve been suffering for it since. And what is “it”, you ask? “It” is this.
And I know certain empty heads will esplode because I wrote this.

Projectifying … projecticating … we call it maize …
Makes you wonder when it comes to the modern liberal individual, if one personality even knows what the other is saying.
Our recent visitor from American Liberal Times – the fellow now inviting us to comment on his blog after having just recently purged it of years (he said) of conservative comment – presently informs the world that the “Mission of this [American Liberal Times] blog” is:
“Trying to get it right for the sake of sanity in a very dark and dangerous world. Blogging is one of the last bastions of freedom of speech and freedom of the press left to us and I think it can be far more accurate and truthful than most corporate-owned main stream media.”
A “very dark and dangerous world” he says; one in which blogs can be far more truthful and accurate than the mainstream press. Well, give him some credit: he doesn’t dare claim that his own blog, filled as it is with what he describes as literal hearsay, is one of those accurate and truthful blogs. That would be more than comically “outrageous”. That would be ludicrous.
Continuing on then, we quickly scroll down the bilious entries of the American Liberal Times blog and encounter more, much more, on this theme of a very dark and dangerous world.
We find for example the following description of “Righties”, as ” … stinking mental garbage and unmitigated flamboyant exaggerations from the darkest pits of …” But wait. That’s not the quote we were looking for. That’s fulminating darkness alright; but it’s fulminating darkness that he obviously himself owns.
Was this the quote ? “… [the wealthy] privileged hungry savage lion wearing the royal robes of the rich right wing elitists still roams the countryside searching for the unfortunate poor whom it may emasculate, eviscerate and . . . devour!”.
No, that’s obviously dark and paranoid too, but not quite the quote we were looking for either.
The quote we are looking for is the one where he projects paranoid sentiments onto conservatives, rather than directly expressing them himself as a liberal.
Ok, ok, here it is, I’ve found it. Here’s where he looks in the mirror and starts pointing his finger at “rightie” so-called “paranoia”.
So, to repeat, da da da da da … the set up is that he thinks the world is very dark and dangerous, and da da da … roamed by elitists seeking to devour et cetera. And so now … yeah … and so now he has this friend you see, who knows conservatives, and (drumroll):
” … Righties [who] always seemed to be living in a state of constant fear and paranoia . . . fear about the government planning to “come and get them” or “coming to do them in” or “coming to steal their guns and take away their freedoms or put them into a FEMA camp or something. …
and then speaking for himself The American Liberal Times author says:
“I know a few like this guy is describing too and the ones I know about never seem to have a minutes peace in their lives either – – always living on the edge – – always fearing some calamity just around the corner but never quite yet “Here” for some reason known only to them.…”
You see? It’s all so clear. Liberals may be paranoid, crazy, and conspiratorial, and live in “a very dark and dangerous world”, but it’s only because conservatives have made them be, and live, that way. Or something.

Just trying to keep things straight here in case of potential developments in the Still Somewhat United Kingdom: but, if Scotland declares its independence in order to form a more perfect collectivist state, is Scotland somehow automatically grandfathered in on the various agreements and crap we have with Great Britain?
I mean, like, man, how could this legally be? Wouldn’t Scotland then be a brand new country, with no treaties or agreements with anyone and no membership in any international organizations?
So … then Scotland wouldn’t even be a member of the United Nations, right? And the United States, for example, would have neither direct nor indirect obligations or arrangements with the Scotch – assuming they even exist for much longer before turning their country over to foreign laborers in return for a promise that their pensions will be paid until they die, or whatever.
But think for a minute. What if Denmark invaded Scotland? Would anyone be legally obligated to respond in its defense? What if Donald Trump invaded … with the intention of turning the whole place into a game preserve?
And, in somewhat happier terms, might this mean in a legal context, for example, that any annoying socialist son-of-a-bitch you might run across, would be – as long as he was Scotch – virtually outside the law … if that is, you could catch it off its home turf?
Now, “Why in the world … “, you might ask ” .. would I even wonder about something like that”? Especially as I am always carping in favor of freedom and self-determination?
The answer is obvious: Alex Salmond.
Yes, that Alex Salmond, pictured above. (Though you might be forgiven for mistaking him for that other tubby leftist Scotch miscreant George Galloway.)
I’ve been doing a little reading about the Scottish Independence referendum, and it is clear that a great deal of what has been driving it, unfortunately, is not a desire for more freedom, but a demand for less.
And who is especially in favor of it? Well, according to those profiled in The Guardian, it’s those who have heretofore had little or no interest in politics, and but who presently draw checks from it.
So what we have here in the Scotch Independence Movement, is a movement that appears to be largely by and for those who draw their meal tickets from the government and who are determined to make sure that if England is infected by “neo-liberal” ideas of the kind that spell individual rights and less government direction, they will not be part of it.
Of course others have a different opinion. Some see it, and speaking of Donald Trump, as part of a vast right wing conspiracy for which Salmond is acting as crony or front man.
Who can say really. All we really know is what the Scotch in favor of the movement say, and that is that they want less dangerous classical liberalism and more guaranteed welfare statism, even if it means paying for their “Independence” by importing a non-Scots replacement population in order to to underwrite it all.
Why don’t they just put guns to their heads and pull the triggers?
The Nazis, famous for being infamous, were once also famous for complaining that many of the most vigorous of the German nationality had emigrated to America; leaving behind a more stolid and less heroic population than was necessary for an anti-classical liberal national revivification of the kind they envisioned. Their proposed solution was the organized militarization of their political culture, and the expulsion (or murder) all non-Germans in the perfervid hope of reinvigorating their “people”.
The Scotch solution to an endemic national ennui and the threat of encroaching classical liberalism, is to declare independence from the source of the individual self-direction taint (England), and turn the country over to immigrants who will, they hope, underwrite the comfort of the present pensioner class.
Talk about two suicidal extremes proposed as answers to what was essentially the same question …

FOX News is about to report on “three Atlantic City Casinos closing for good.” Good. Would that all casinos closed for good. On one side, you have immoral people preying on immoral lemmings. On the other side, you have immoral lemmings having less money than they used to. And the outcome is, they both lose. What’s not to like?
What do casinos produce? Nothing. They offer the most expensive places in the world to sit down. I suppose the entertainment value of pulling a lever and watching wheels spin can be attractive to some fools. But seriously, what uplifting value do casinos have? What societal benefit do they provide? They produce nothing. They add nothing to the growth of a community. They only take what that community provides. But the Obama Recovery (which would be a long-term recession or even depression in any other administration) means Society doesn’t have enough for the casinos to siphon.
So, the blood-suckers are dying off because there isn’t enough blood for them to suck. The tapeworms are dying because their hosts are emaciated. The Crimea River is in Atlantic City, NJ.

From his website: Intellectual powerhouse Benjamin Crump.
Read the screen capture below and weep for civilization.
Three so-called “Esquires”, all signing off on a contemptibly inflammatory polemic intended to shift attention away from what appears to be a steadily creeping indictment of the moral character of the late Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri.
And all they succeed in demonstrating is their own moral and intellectual incompetence.
See the first paragraph issued by these legal geniuses: “piece mil” for “piecemeal”. Unfortunately for them, it is the kind of error spell check won’t catch; since, both “piece” and “mil” are real words.
So three activist lawyers rush to the scene of a fiasco, put their demonstrably sub-par heads together, and that is what results.
Did they write the nonsense they published above? Who knows? But it appears over Crump’s name.
Did they read it? Again, who knows? But one is justified in presuming that material published over a man’s name has at least been read by him.
Three publicity seeking bomb throwing lawyers, and apparently not one of them could spell “piecemeal”.
And just in case people are wondering if some AOL typist is responsible for the error in the statement:
Kind of sums it up, doesn’t it?

A little while ago I posted on my failed project to enter into a constructive dialog with a liberal … any liberal at all. The latest case being, one John The Liberal, the proprietor of the “American Liberal Times” blog.
That was then.
Now, introducing just a little more of John The Liberal.
John The Liberal has a few observations and rhetorical-style questions.
We will present his remarks as “questions” and “comments”, and then propose our own “answers”.
1, Question from John:
“It seems that some “Christians” . . . ( I have no reason to doubt they are Christians . . . I am not their judge and jury . . . That is God’s Business) . . . some Christians seems to be Hell-bent ( pardon the unintended pun) on getting themselves into trouble by trying to export their belief system to foreign cultures . . . did you ever notice?”
Yes we have. This is probably due to the fact that it is a critical and essential part of their faith according to its very Founder. Sometimes it is referred to as “The Great Commission” . You have repeatedly referred to your own religious faith in terms which would lead one to assume that it had, or once had, something to do with Christianity as well. So perhaps you heard of the command to evangelize at one time.
Matthew Chapter 28
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the world.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God
And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?”
It should also be noted that Church history records that all the original apostles did in fact “get into trouble” exporting their faith to foreign cultures; with only one apostle even surviving the commission: albeit in exile. The plain fact is that the faith was at one time foreign to all cultures; even the culture of its homeland.
So yes, John. Many people have noticed.
2, Comment from John:
“I am one of those “Liberal Freaks” who firmly believes that if some pew-jumper church starts preaching politics from the pulpit it should lost its tax-exempt status . . . period . . . end of story. Why should they rake in millions of tax-free dollars for their big wig preachers to live high on the hog on and be able to shove their politics down their parishioners’ throats at the same time?
It has nothing to do with “freedum of ree-ligiun” at all.
It has to do with trying to mix politics and religion – – and that is something that simply cannot work out in the long run. …
I’m all in favor of the government taxing the Living Hell out of any church that makes itself a virtual headquarters of some political party.
Share this:callous! I didn’t mean for it to sound that way but I think it has to be asked.)
Answer: Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United
3, An “observation” from John The Liberal of American Liberal Times:
“When tyranny comes to a nation it always comes wrapped in a flag and carrying a gun and a Bible.”

you were a lousy teacher and you totes deserve your bad karma. hope you bankrupt soon.
That was attempted to be put up on my Good News And Bad News article.
The bad news is I’m not a professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison, or at Wyoming. You see, I died in 1712.
The good news is I’m one undead individual with enough brain power left not to vote Democrat.
Let’s see how many remember this:

… and most amusing.
I could not believe this when I first saw it in my e-mail, I thought …
Well, wait a second and let me back up.
A few years ago, more than a handful actually, I subscribed to a German news service which was headquartered in D.C.
The reason I did so was because, ironically enough, I wanted to keep abreast of legislation in Europe related to firearms ownership control, and crime trends.
It turned out that although I did receive some useful news links, especially concerning crime and economic trends in Germany, I was able to accomplish much of what I really wanted to do with my own research.
So I cancelled, and after wrangling for some months, eventually managed to put an end to the service.
Imagine my surprise then, when about a year ago I started receiving e-mails from “EIN” ( that was the name of the service) containing links to various news items from around the globe. Well, sort of from around the globe. Many concerned the United States, and I’ll be “doggoned” if the strangest thing hadn’t happened. It seemed almost as if some breathless politically “progressive” intern from the Huffington (Facebook conversations reflecting community values only please) Post had assumed control over news item selection and captioning.
My routine became, click to open, quick to glance, click to close.
So, anyway today I opened up the latest EIN “World News Monitoring” e-mail , and found that according to EIN News Editors’ Picks for June 27, 2014, Walmart was peddling sniper rifles to all and sundry.
My goodness! Walmart is selling Barretts? Or at least honest to goodness sniper rifles?
Gee. “How much could I pick one up for?”, I wondered. Or maybe Kathy would get me one and stash it away for Christmas?
No, no. I better get right over there and scoop up mine before the horders arrive!
So I followed the link.
A pellet gun! A lousy pellet gun!
This “sniper rifle” turns out to be a pellet gun – a crummy pellet gun. You know, of the same caliber as the standard BB gun, but with a higher velocity, and maybe suitable under some circumstances for dealing with smallish rodents where the law allows. Don’t shoot at that red squirrel if there is a window behind it Johnny!
Perhaps the EIN News writer, knows so little about guns that he or she doesn’t even understand the difference between a BB gun or a pellet gun on the one hand, and what they insinuate is a firearm on the other?
Well maybe. Perhaps the person I early on mocked as an apparently histrionic intern, is in fact British. That might explain it, since the alarmed reaction might then make some sense; since even toy BB or air soft guns are disallowed in that so-called “cradle of liberty”. As is when you come right down to it, so much else illegal in Great Britain nowadays, such as for example, truly free political speech.
But, you would at least think that someone, other than a transparently lying propagandist, or a timid twenty-something ignoramus from Great Britain, or their American equivalents, would exercise a final editorial supervision over the titling of these links: so as to at least minimize, if nothing else, the ridiculousness of the situation when the redounding stupidity of their presentation became, as it inevitably would, comically apparent to all and tarred the writer with the label “IMBECILE”.
What are these idiots thinking? Oh that’s right. Idiots don’t.
That’s why they are idiots.

HT Bmore (Note: His link changes on a regular basis, so it won’t always show the graphs I have below.)
Take a look at these charts and tell me what correlations you found.
I suggest we amend the Second Amendment as follows: If your voting record is to the Left of The Crying Man* you are not permitted to own guns or knives or any sharp objects. What do you think? Do you think the lying liar# who “bought his way into Heaven” by lying and demagoguery would like the idea?
I know, I know. Correlation does not necessarily mean causation, but the Left are always misrepresenting correlations and declaring by fiat (not the decrepit car company) that their misrepresented correlations necessarily mean causation for their pet takeover desires.

Sometimes a rat fight can be rather amusing. Just try not to let them know you’re watching, much less laughing.
Now I admit that I’ve inadvertently ruffled rat fur in the past. I did it on another blog by making – years after the fact – what were by any rational standards temperate and measured remarks about the object lessons available from that infamous Greensboro, North Carolina gunfight which took place between Neo-Nazi’s looking for revenge and self-professed Maoist revolutionary types trolling for a second-round public confrontation with them.
There were those among that blog’s readers who were especially outraged that I looked askance at the speechifying activities of one of the ideology drunk Maoist participants; as her husband lay on the ground with the top of his head shot off.
Quivering with indignation they fumed – or pretended to fume – that I was dancing in the blood of fellow Americans. That’s “fellow” and “Americans” in quotes of course, since we are talking here about Nazi-types on the one hand, and totalitarian disciples of a mass murdering Marxist dictator on the other. Listening to self-described leftists wave the American flag over the bodies of its enemies while hysterically shouting about human decency was pretty much worth the price of admission alone.
Anyway, those who are unfamiliar with that particular historical event – the gunfight not the years later blog eruption – can research it all for themselves, or make a beginning by clicking on this link.
However the rat fight I have in mind here, is not between two species of rat, but a more all in the lefty-family type of brawl. And thus far there have been no known fatalities, though there has been the usual obscene speechifying.
Will rat blood be shed by rat? I doubt it. We can probably rest easy on that point.
Gee … what more can one reasonably say?
