That's Not Very Comforting.......

Amid all the actually crazy shit going on in the world, people are now vaping Tide pods.

Saturday, August 19, 2017


This post is from the DMF archive of early 2012, it's words a bit dated now. But in light of news of the present days, is a clear illustration of how far we have "Progressed" since the death of our old friend. How old scabs have been pick at as well as all new wounds inflicted on America in the last eight years. 

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for what seems forever. No one really knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered for his integrity. For cultivating such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair, don't take what doesn't belong to you, and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when so-called well-intentioned, but overbearing, regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for sneaking a kiss from classmate, teenagers suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they had themselves failed to do in disciplining their disrespectful and unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer paracetamol, sun lotion or an aspirin to a pupil, but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense began to lose the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became labeled as hateful and objects of vehement criticism for teaching morality, and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when some courts ruled you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home, but the burglar could sue you for assault because you protected yourself and your own.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. 

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason. He is survived by three estranged stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized that he was gone.  

Thank You MJA for the Linkage!

How Did Your Senator Vote on Sanctuary Cities?

Daily Signal
Senate Democrats blocked legislation that would punish “sanctuary cities” in a 54-45 vote Monday.
The bill, called the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act, needed to overcome a 60-vote threshold. It would withhold certain federal funding from states or cities that refuse to comply with requests from federal immigration officials to turn over immigrants who are in the country illegally.
The Vote:

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) introduced the legislation, which includes a provision known as Kate’s Law, named after 32-year-old Kate Steinle, who was fatally shot in San Francisco on July 1. The bill would impose a mandatory minimum jail sentence of five years for illegal immigrants who are convicted of re-entering the United States after being convicted of an aggravated felony or have three strikes for trying to enter the country illegally.
“It’s maddening that the Democrats are encouraging sanctuary cities like New Orleans that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement and let dangerous criminal illegals free,” Vitter said in a statement after the bill failed. Vitter has been pushing to defund sanctuary cities since 2007, when he served as chairman of the Border Security Caucus.

Just more proof the Democrat party cares nothing about co-operation for the betterment of the country, cares nothing about the rule of law, the Constitution or the freedom, safety and well being of law abiding legal American citizens.  

When will America raise up?
