“SJW” was a caricature, “Woke” is a world view. When 60+ percent of people tell pollsters they are afraid to say what they really mean, when Human Resources departments at influential companies, and elite schools where the countries future leadership is being educated are being influenced by Kendi ...

He very much controls the Republican Party and is considered the front runner for that Party's nomination.

He is the subject of multiple criminal investigations which is unprecedented for a former President.

Got to have Sabra use Jewish Space Lasers :D And use his connections to international banking to ruin the villain's credit rating. Throwing Stars of David. A lethal razor yarmulke like OddJob's bowler from Goldfinger . Actually, I think someone already made that movie: https://m.media-amazon.com/im...

The cliché rang true for the fall of 2001 in the New York area. It certainly was the worst of times, but it was also the best of times in the sense the there was unity I had never seen before and seems today like it came from an alternate universe to the America of 2022. There was an intensity to e...

I was home with my infant staring in shock. And then I was wondering how I was going to talk about it with my preschooler when he got home. Definitely felt like an end to how life had been as an American. My kids have never known that secure feeling we used to have. I can’t say I felt secure with t...

I immediately thought this was a terrorist attack because it was such a clear day, and I had figured we were due for a big attack of some sort because terrorism was happening worldwide and we are the most powerful country in the the world who had pissed people off. Apparently this is just another w...

I do, it's called wokeness. No, "wokeness" is not the name of a specific political belief or theory. "Woke" is more a value judgment than an actual name of anything. Furthermore, its meaning has rapidly evolved. For example, the Cambridge Dictionary defines "wokeness" ...

The Republican denial that Trump lost 2020 exactly parallels Democrat denial that Hillary lost 2016. Democrats blame Russia for Trump 2016 win, and Republicans blame stolen ballots for Biden 2020 win. . They are completely different. Democrats (and security intelligence) blamed Russian inte...

I don't see her communication as effective because she over-simplifies things thus discrediting herself in the process. Even if her opinions are right, she sabotaged her persuasiveness. I disagree about her effectiveness. You do not get to be Time Magazine’s person of the year, get thousands of peo...

The failure to do the most basic due diligence may not be a matter of these journalists and editors actually believing every accusation of racism but fear of publically not believing every accusation of racism. It feels I am loony for writing this but in 2022 accusations of racism are worse for you ...

Dox47 would laugh if this backfires on the Dems, My emotions on this differ from his. There are no adequate words in the English language that can express my fury. Not even a little chuckle? https://i.imgflip.com/6tke3o.jpg If it backfires just on them sure, on the country as a whole, nope.

I feel they are both destroying this country. They are both destroying the country. That is what makes the current situation so difficult and dangerous. There is no good way to fight this situation. In this zero-sum game era of tribal politics if you speak up against one side does you are assumed t...

Disney plus has decided to add warnings to their old films and amimation about stereotypes and racism and saying how they are aware it's wrong now. People out there are too stupid to understand history and how times change so they will take offense to an old film and blame Disney Plus for making su...

Our ears are open, Mona. I would suggest simply naming the specific behaviors or attitudes you are objecting to. For example, when objecting to mob mentality, just call it mob mentality. When objecting to online harassment, just call it online harassment. When objecting to hypocrisy, just call it h...
