The many mouths of Democrats

Mouths lr

The tolerant, coexist-bumper-sticker liberals seem to be oblivious to the fact that stoking hate is not trumping hate.  It’s not hard to imagine a liberal beating you with a bull horn in between singing verses of “All You Need is Love” by The Beatles.  Of course, it’d be their own version.

Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be fought.
Whatever you propose it must be stopped.
Nothing you can say ’cause we know how to play the game.
It’s queasy.

Nothing you can make that can’t be lost.
No one you can sway that can’t be bought.
No more pro-nouns he or she, no more masculinity.

It’s queasy.

All you need is love.  (On the left now)

All you need is love

Love is all you need.

Love is all you need.

A win for Pro-Life and the 1st Amendment and against an intrusive government

Posted on Updated on

Thanks to at least a few Supreme Court justices there’s still hope for the Constitution.  In a 5-4 ruling they determined that California’s law requiring anti-abortion, faith-based pregnancy centers to advertise for abortion clinics infringed on the pro-life organizations’ 1st Amendment rights.  The scary part is that it wasn’t a 9-0 ruling.

We reported on this in March and pointed out a few “fun” equivalencies including a requirement for the Presbyterian Women’s Garden Club to advertise for a strip club.  We even came up with the advertisement.

Baby Boomers’ guide to social media and communications

Posted on Updated on

You may think that us Baby Boomers are averse to social media interactions.  In reality, we’re quite active.  It just may not seem that way to millennials.   The likely reason behind that misconception is that BB’s spend time engaging is several socializing methods other than social media.   We know how terrifying face-to-face and voice communications can be, fortunately the BB’s overcame that fear at around the age of two.

So for the benefit of whippersnappers, here are some social media communication lessons for the younger generations who are willing to share the internets.

  • Speaking in emojis can get annoying.  We know sometimes it’s clever and funny but don’t get carried away.  Neanderthals wrote in emojis but they didn’t have an alphabet.  Don’t be a Neanderthal, use the alphabet.
  • We’re most likely to use Facebook than other social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram.  They’re all the same, right?  Besides, our kids got us started on Facebook and it seems to work fine.
  • Text us if we need to see a message that day; email us for information that should be seen that week and, even though it’s very Mayberry, use an actual phone if you need an immediate response.
  • We purposely limit the amount of personal information on-line.  No one needs to know why you were compelled to go “Code Grey” at the DMV, details on your seaweed facial fiasco, or that public message to someone that really should have been a private conversation.
  • No one cares about your lunch so no need to post pictures.  Now if it’s moving, on fire or making noise, please post plenty of video.
  • If you have a desire to post pictures of Confederacy of Drones’ staff, we’ll need written permission, sample copies of the photo, a copy of your drivers license, your mother’s maiden name, and the make and model of your first car.
  • Arguing on social media is fine, in fact we encourage it.  Name calling, cussing, and typing in all caps, though, just wastes our time.  Remember, our generation goes outside occasionally and won’t spend their life on-line.  See “How do you like them apples.”
  • We don’t measure life in “likes” or the number of “friends.”  Speaking of friends,  we don’t think you know what that word really means.
Keep in mind that BB’s invented the computer and the internet.  You’re welcome.

Google’s Knowledge Panel and Wikipedia

Posted on Updated on

Google lr

Recently a couple of Google search results included links to disquieting anti-conservative content in the search engine’s so-called Knowledge Panel.  The content in these panels relies on Wikipedia for much of that information and may be the source for the anti-conservative bias.  So how does Wikipedia get its content?  If you Google Wikipedia, here’s what that Knowledge Panel says:

Wikipedia is a multilingual, web-based, free-content encyclopedia that is based on a model of openly editable content. It is the largest and most-popular general reference work on the Internet, and is named as one of the most popular websites.

So in short, one of the “most popular websites”, that’s a “model of openly editable content” is relied on by the quasi-monopoly Google to provide us with “knowledge.”  Add in to the mix that Social Justice Warriors dominate social media companies and it’s no wonder conservative bias infiltrates Google searches.

The reason for the specific anti-conservative propaganda mentioned above was that Wikipedia was “vandalized.”  When asked about the incident, Larry Page, Google founder said the vandal was “no doubt a well-intentioned SJW.  Remember, Hillary’s email-server-hidden-in-a-bathroom was well-intentioned so there’s not much to see here either.  Despite that, we’ve exhausted our technology to determine that the offending IP address links back to a seventh-grade typing class at Eric Holder Junior High.   So just relax you over-sensitive bigoted, Nazi-loving Republicans.”

We should mention that we got that quote from Google’s Knowledge Panel.
