There I was, driving my routes, making my pickups and deliveries, minding my own business and listening to talk-radio in the car. And four different times, on four different topics, something on talk-radio lit my fire and got me all exacerbated over something "conservatives" said. Over once contentious issues that are no longer contentious, but they should be contentious, and that's the problem.
It's the slow, steady, incremental general social acceptance of nonsense. Things that never should have been socially accepted in the first place, but have now become part of the common social view.
I listen to Clay Travis and Buck Sexton mostly, now that Rush is gone. But I find them more and more aggravating the more Never-Trumper they go, and that is indeed where they are going.
They pretend, and they want us to also pretend, that either there was no cheating in the 2020 election, or, that there couldn't have been enough cheating to change the election results. And I see no compelling reason to believe either of those two things. The cheating was recorded on security cameras for all to see. It was right there in front of our eyes, and we are not supposed to "believe" our own eyes.
Clay, yesterday, opined that, if the 2020 election was indeed stolen, then what's to stop the 2024 election from being stolen?
And the answer is, of course, nothing.
Yet he refers to that answer as a self-defeating belief. Why?
Why would denying all cheating not be the self-defeating position?
The fact that they don't want to believe that elections are ever stolen does not mean that elections are not ever stolen; only that they don't want to believe it, or even look into it in any serious way. They worry more about the appearance of stolen American elections than they do about the ramifications of stolen elections, which America is experiencing in spades right now, thanks to an election with gross cheating recorded on video still being allowed to stand.
Promote faith in the election process; pretend it didn't happen.
An incredibly and dangerously stupid position.
But the Scopes trial wasn't even a real trial; it was a test case. It was more like a bar-bet than a court trial. Here's what we wrote about it back in the old Darwinism page:
Where was the "science" in any of this?
At question was not the banning of any book, but the teaching of evolution in schools as if it were proved science, which it was not, and still is not. In fact, it is disproved, in multiple ways. But evolution itself was hardly even addressed in the court case. The Bible was, and it was defended by a non-expert who couldn't even answer even the simplest questions about what it said.
None of that matters any more, and that's the problem. A falsified theory is now commonly held to be scientifically true, and belief in God and in Scripture are thus reduced if not eliminated in many minds, and that was and remains the goal of the religious-cleansing secularists.
That's how Clarence Darrow did science. And that's how Gregg Jarrett does Science, and apparently, that's how he does law, too.
Everyone in talk radio jumped on this one. Everyone today seems to accept if not celebrate sodomy in American society, but the Bud-Light, Target, etc. adds promoting transsexual lifestyles or bathing suits is seen as too much.
Why? How, exactly, is sodomy compatible in Christianity or Judaism?
What the hell is wrong with a nation, or a religion, or a corporation, or a school, or an institution, or a family that has made itself complacent if not celebratory about sodomic relationships within its borders?
Where, exactly, did anyone think the blessing of sodomy would lead?
They look at Tranny-ism and think that is the slippery slope; but the slippery slope was past long ago. This is the cliff.
It's the homosexuality, stupid.
Again, everyone has an idea for getting armed deterrence into schools to put an end to school shootings. The variations are unlimited. Retired old fart veteran volunteers. Assigned and paid off-duty cops. Trained carrying teachers or other employees. Special door locks, single-entry and exit schools, bullet-proof glass, etc., etc., etc.
Everything other than locking up loony tunes and criminals, and other than abolishing all unconstitutional gun control laws.
"Red Flag" laws, if enacted, ought to lock up people, not their guns.
Every single gun control law, at every single level, is unconstitutional. Gun registration is unconstitutional. Gun dealer licensing is unconstitutional. Interstate gun sale laws are unconstitutional. All local, city, county, state and federal gun control laws are unconstitutional.
The second amendment grants the citizenry the unlimited absolute right to keep and bear arms, and forbids any level of government from infringing on that right.
Those are the meanings the authors intended, and those are the meanings the ratifiers ratified.
As the chief law enforcement officer of America who is sworn in his oath of office to uphold, obey and protect the constitution, any President with the balls to do it could declare all gun registration and gun control laws of any kind to be null and void by simple declaration, and let any opponents try to get a constitutional amendment ratified to restore their ability to infringe on that absolute right.
If we just went back to the way it was the day after the Constitution was ratified mass shootings would soon come to a screeching halt. Crime will always be with us, but when the criminals are the only ones allowed to be armed, crime rises. And when the law abiding citizenry are armed, crime lowers. That's the way it is.
I'm tired of arguing that the lunatics never should have been turned out of the asylums and the convicts never should have been turned out of the prisons. And I'm tired of all the government (Marxocrat?) advertisements trying to "de-stigmatize" lunatics, dopers and criminals. They are supposed to be stigmatized, and the law abiding citizenry have every right to know who and what they are.
Outlaw gun control laws and watch crime go down. Watch even New York subways become safe again. Watch the BLM, Antifa, anarchist and flash-mob looters suddenly disappear from the scene. It's a bit harder to loot or burn or rob a business when a majority of the former victim business owners, employees and clientele suddenly turn and become a serious threat to life and limb.
See all the Anti-American Gun Control pages.

Vic, no matter how you feel about it and no matter what you believe about it, campaigning on the stolen 2020 stolen election is a losing campaign, just like campaigning for 100% ban on abortions is a losing campaign. Politics is the art of getting the most votes, and you can't win an election by treating contentious issues as if there were no shades of gray and no grounds for compromise.

So, in other words, pretending the 2020 election was perfectly valid and never mentioning it ever again is a winning strategy, and not an American nation ending strategy? I ain't buying it. Election cheating is the most dangerous issue facing Constitutional America in at least a century, if not in the whole history of the nation. I will never pretend it didn't happen and isn't still happening.
As far as the national argument over abortion goes, it shouldn't even exist. Abortion is not among the limited and enumerated legislative powers of the federal government. That means it is not open for discussion at the federal level. The whole reason for making America a constitutional republic rather than a simple democracy was to prevent that very sort of argument. The federal government is prohibited from imposing religion (i.e., morality) on the sovereign states and the sovereign citizenry. The states and the citizens make up their own minds about such things.
If it can't be legislated one way or the other at the federal level, that means that the original establishment of federal "abortion rights" was done unconstitutionally, which is to say, illegally, which is to say, criminally. In direct violation of the supreme law of the land.
The whole reason we are a constitutional republic and not a democracy is because people change their minds all the time, but right and wrong do not ever change.
If the whole nation voted for abortion, it would still be wrong.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
