Virginia Proposes New Law to Protect ‘Hairstyles’

See the source image

Does he put his thumb in the soup? Good thing he’s not real…

All other things being equal, would you rather eat in a restaurant where the waiters and waitresses were neat, friendly, and attentive, or one in which the staff was slow, slovenly, inattentive, and got your order wrong, half the time? We don’t have to spend a lot of time on the answer, do we?

But the state of Virginia is debating a new law to add “hairstyle” to the protected categories covered by the Virginia “Human Rights Act” (https://wtvr.com/2020/01/29/racial-discrimination-hair/). Supposedly their chief concern is to protect “African-Americans’ traditional hairstyles.”

Question! How do they know an applicant wasn’t hired because of his or her hair flying around all over the place? Like, maybe the interviewer didn’t like the applicant’s attitude, state of personal hygiene, or some other detail that suggested that this person probably wouldn’t be a good employee? I mean, who’s actually going to tell the “human rights” wallahs, “I didn’t hire so-and-so because I don’t like his hair”?

Meanwhile, America’s colleges and looniversities habitually–and flagrantly–don’t hire conservatives. Studies indicate that libs outnumber conservatives 12-1 as professors and instructors. That’s okay? No discrimination there?

Do these people recognize any limitation at all to the scope of government? (Hint: No.) Have they nothing better to do than protect assorted hairstyles? (Hint: Probably not.)

At what point does government stop growing? I really do wonder.


Say What???

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a president and a presidential candidate, is living proof that a hereditary presidency would be a terrible idea.

Now, she said this some years ago, and it blew up in her face; so naturally she has said it again, just recently.

Chelsea wishes her grandmother had had “access” to Planned Parenthood: “…[H]ow much I wish that my grandmother–my mom’s mom–had been able to go to a Planned Parenthood” (https://www.lifenews.com/2019/02/20/chelsea-clinton-complains-her-grandmother-did-not-have-access-to-planned-parenthood/).

Hold off on that honorary Mensa membership, folks.

Not surprisingly, the bizarre comment has again backfired on Chelsea. By the way, have you heard that liberals are, like, miles smarter than everybody else? Or so they tell us.

Chelsea has blamed “anti-choice people”–in regular English, “pro-life”–for twisting her meaning. Obviously she didn’t mean her momma, Hillary, shoulda been snuffed in the womb. No, no. Oh, wait a minute–about 95% of pregnant women who go to a Planned Parenthood facility get abortions. Maybe Chelsea’s grandma would’ve gone there to play dominoes. But the odds against anything but an abortion are mighty steep.

With any bad luck at all, we’re going to wind up with Chelsea in Congress one of these days.

Maybe if we repent real hard, things’ll turn out otherwise.


‘Politics at Its Worst’ (2016)

Image result for images of angry hillary

Something tells me we’re going to see and hear things this election cycle which will make 2016 seem like a church service.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/02/25/politics-at-its-worst/

This whole technique of “divide and rule,” setting people at each other’s throats, is what keeps the Democrat Party in business. As long as whole groups of citizens hate and fear each other, the Party is alive and well.

Please remember this: They don’t care what happens to our country, as long as they come out on top.

That must never happen again.


When Is ‘Royal’ Not Royal?

See the source image

Short answer: when the Queen of England says so.

“Harry and Meghan”(TM), the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with Harry sixth in line for the throne, have been told in no uncertain terms that they can’t go around selling stuff using “Sussex Royal” as a brand name (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8030241/Prince-Harry-Meghan-Markle-stop-using-Sussex-Royal-brand-territory-spring.html). They bailed out on being working members of the royal family and went west to become celebrities.

They’re kind of cheesed off about not being allowed to use the royal family as a sales gimmick. “The queen doesn’t own the word ‘Royal,'” they proclaimed on their website. Even so, just to be nice guys, the Duke & Duchess will voluntarily stop using the “Sussex Royal” brand… which they had already mobilized to sell clothing, stationery, and bandanas.

You can see how this could get out of hand. Next thing you know, you’ve got Sussex Royal fish sticks, cat toys, video games, and borscht. “They simply cannot be allowed to market themselves as royals,” is the word from Buckingham Palace.

Although Harry and Meghan(TM) have left their duties as members of the British royal family, the UK and Canada will split the tab for their security–three to six million Pounds per year. Oh, well, it’s all public money… grows on trees, you know.

Just out of curiosity, what would happen if Harry & Meghan(TM) flatly refused to stop selling stuff as Sussex Royal? Ka-boom? Sleep with the fishes? They don’t seem to be in any hurry to find out.

Stay tuned for the Harry & Meghan(TM) hair-restoring tonic.


‘Worldwide “Witches” to Cast Spell on Trump’ (2017)

Well, okay, gang, you’ve had three years. Where’s this spell that’s supposed to drive him out of office?

https://leeduigon.com/2017/02/24/worldwide-witches-to-cast-spell-on-trump/

Witchcraft is not against God’s law because it actually works. It’s forbidden because those who practice it get highly exalted opinions of themselves. Some of their neighbors and customers share those opinions. And you wind up with idiots pretending to be gods.

Believe me: if witchcraft worked, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, and Nancy Pelosi would have eaten this country alive.


What Really Happened?

See the source image

Thucydides, perhaps the greatest historian of them all, admitted to his readers that, try as he had tried, he’d found it impossible to learn and report what really happened. And he was talking about the Peloponnesian War, in which he served as a general. He even caught the plague. And after the war he traveled all over Greece, interviewing people who’d participated in the war.

And his conclusion: “I’ve done the best I could.” But people’s memories play tricks on them, people lie and then forget they’re lying–and, well, history is hard.

I’ve read a lot about that last Democrat “debate,” and that’s what brought old Thucydides so vividly to mind.

Here we had a widely televised event. Millions of people saw and heard exactly the same thing. At the same time.

And yet the reporting of the event has run the gamut from “A total disaster for Bloomberg–he’s finished!” to “masterful performance by a great candidate!” And all points in between. Good luck, Thucydides, trying to find out what really happened.

What the various reporters and commentators said had very much to do with what they wanted their audience to think. With what agenda they were pushing. It would be nice if we could rely on our free and independent press for honest, accurate, fair, unbiased news reporting. [Allow three full minutes for a storm of sardonic belly-laughs] But that would be like relying on things to fall up instead of down.

The ones who stayed neutral for a while were waiting for their checks to clear.

One thing we can rely on is the certainty that the Democrats are not our friends. Under no circumstances should we vote for one of them. Ever.

I don’t care how they try to package Bloomberg. He’s got that “D” after his name, and really, that’s all I need to know.

 


UK’s National Health: If Your Mind’s Not Right, You Get No Care

See the source image

Paging Dr. Lecter, Dr. Lecter to Ward 6…

I wasn’t going to write anything more today, I really need to read The Wind from Heaven and patch up any errors in it–but this I have to write about.

The UK’s National Health System–socialized medicine, idolized by America’s Democrats–has new rules now that allow hospital staff to withhold medical care from patients who are “racist, sexist, or homophobic” (https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3817556/posts), Sky News has reported.

Supposedly this applies a) only to “non-emergency care” and b) to patients who assault, or threaten to assault, hospital staff. But they give away the game when they reveal that patients’ “remarks” are to be equated with “violence.” So again we have leftids redefining “violence” to cover anything said that they, the leftids, might find objectionable.

So here’s the problem. They–government employees–get to decide which “remarks” are dangerous. They also get to decide what would be “non-emergency” and what wouldn’t.

Is it hard to imagine that some patient, who carelessly lets it slip that he, say, voted for Brexit, who comes into the hospital writhing in pain from a broken leg, will be neglected because Hard Left staff decide a broken leg is “non-emergency” and anyway he deserves it, no-good racist that he is? That’s, like, never gonna happen?

This is why the powers of government must be strictly limited, and government kept O-U-T of matters, like health care, that don’t concern them. But of course when you have socialism, everything concerns the government. That would include medical care, who gets it and who doesn’t, as well as a patient’s personal beliefs.

As sure as night follows day, this sort of thing will happen here if Democrats succeed in importing an NHS-type health care regime to America. These are people who really do believe you ought to suffer if your mind’s not right.

Heaven help us if we fail to crush them in November.


Dems Love… Communism?

See the source image

They booed God at their national convention.

And last night they booed one of their candidates for saying communism “doesn’t work” (ya think?).

Here’s what former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg actually said: “We’re not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that, other countries tried that. It was called communism, and it just doesn’t work.”

Moans and boos! Boo, capitalism! That was the audience.

What do they actually want? “Democratic socialism”? But what is that? A Soviet Union with Democrats in charge, probably. They want free stuff. It isn’t really free, someone has to pay for it, but they don’t know and they don’t care. It’s really an immoral mind-set. And it doesn’t create wealth, but destroys it. The Soviet Union collapsed, and Red China, while keeping the communist label, turned to fascism. Even fascism works better than communism.

As someone who grew up in the 1950s and 60s, it’s just about inconceivable to me that any political party, except the Communist Party itself, would ever consent to serve as a haven for communists.

Chalk that change up to public education.

That’s who’s responsible for Americans defending communism.


Dem Debate: Blah-blah-blah

You don’t need me to tell you about last night’s Democrat “debate.” And if you missed it, here’s some video of a penguin rookery. Same thing, only shorter.

I’m starting to get a creepy feeling about these events. They’re starting to look and sound like TV game shows, washing out any serious civic purpose that they might have ever had.

We have a problem in this country with voters who don’t understand what a president is, or what a president’s supposed to do. So they’ll vote for some nothing candidate because he or she belongs to their own identity group. But then you look at the debate setting and you wonder if anybody takes this seriously at all. Maybe it really is just a kind of popularity contest. Maybe it doesn’t matter which goof gets elected.

In a dangerous age, in a fallen world, our political process is turning into a farce, a comic opera. They tell us to keep our eye out for the moderate Democrat. What moderate? There’s no such thing. Every one of them’s a Far Left wacko.

That Democrat National Convention this summer ought to be really something. Something like a penguin rookery where all the penguins go mad and try to kill each other.


My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 20 (‘Warning! Shipwreck Ahead’)

Image result for images of social chaos

More and more, I’m coming to believe that the crazy public policies imposed on us by Far Left Crazy politicians are purposely intended to bring the country down.

Warning! Shipwreck Ahead

I mean, they totally ignore all warnings, all hazards, don’t they? No matter how insane it is, just bring it on!

Why would they want to collapse our civilization? Two reasons I can think of.

To rebuild some half-assed utopia on the ruins.

To give themselves an excuse to “restore order” by setting up a totalitarian state with themselves in charge.

Those are evil reasons, and we are living in an evil age.
