It's Rude to Point and Laugh. But Some People Just Ask For It.

In the pages of Salon, where our progressive betters ruminate, Nicole Karlis ponders the latest fashionable anxiety.  She relates personal experiences of heartache, tears, stress and dehydration that people experienced after a forced separation from...........their water bottles.  Says Ms. Karlis:
"I have an irrational fear of the water bottle going missing, resulting in suddenly being thirsty and unable to access water. For the record, I did not start using a reusable water bottle until I moved to the Bay Area in 2013."
Perhaps this is one of those moments when the significance of a statement may not be fully appreciated by the person making it.
"Carrying a water bottle with me everywhere I go has turned into… a form of security, one that I’ve become strangely attached to... I am not alone. Plenty of people in my orbit have expressed a similar concern — an unease, really — at the prospect of misplacing their reusable water bottle."
Now, now. We mustn’t rush to judgement.
I’m trying.......I really am.
"For many, losing one’s water bottle will wreak havoc on their day, even their week. I sent out a query to the public to see if others felt what I am now calling "water-bottle separation anxiety." I received dozens of responses, suggesting that I may have tapped into a cultural phenomenon."
What follows is a catalog of unobvious woe and amateur dramatics worthy of a local amateur theatre group. "Activist Manuela Barón" (whose area of activism is left fashionably unspecified) explains how her ancient, battered water bottle had become a “part of ” her, and how the loss of it, at airport security, resulted in a swell of emotional activity:
"I cried as I went through the scanner and ran off to my gate; I didn’t realize it would be like saying goodbye to an old friend."
At which point, it occurs to me I may be misusing the word explain. Sorry.

Lynell Ross, "a founder and editor who lives in California," shares another tearful saga, in which the temporary misplacement of her water bottle left her "devastated."  And reduced to using a mug.  "It honestly threw off my entire day," Ross said in an email.

Theresa Leskowat, "a therapist in North Carolina" is, it seems, similarly afflicted and tells us how she spends her days "reaching for my phantom water bottle." Other accounts are more intense and aspire to the realm of opera:
"Mary Kate Celini… told me via email that her water bottle is her "sidekick in daily activities."  She’s been carrying a 32-ounce reusable water bottle every day for six years."
And then tragedy struck.
"Recently, my partner took it when we were at the gym and he left it behind;  My world felt like it was falling into chaos."
"Falling into chaos"

Ms Karlis goes on to mull "our" attachment to the plastic water bottle as "an object that provides a sense of comfort". (The word our, needless to say, is bearing quite a load there.)  I'm not sure ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman things is healthy, like seeing a water bottle as an "adult binky."  I can’t help but think the attachment is emblematic of something much much deeper. Like the tragic mental consequences of a poor Liberal Arts education.

Or maybe it’s more to do with a particular demographic being prone to neurotic behavior, latte infused, self-loathing privileged liberals within the orbit of Salon's soft skulled columnists, and all-purpose "activists" who respond to humdrum non-events by bursting into tears.

The Media, DJT and the Mind Voodoo Medicine Men

Of course, returning from what seems a very successful summit and a call from overseas for a Nobel nomination, the notorious left-wing news propaganda site 'Salon' decided it was a good time to post an interview, that has been widely linked, with an allegedly noted Psychiatrist discussing the state of Donald Trump’s mental health. 
NB - In an interview with Dr. John Gartner, a former professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University Medical School and co-editor of "Rocket Man: Nuclear Madness and the Mind of Donald Trump," labeled Trump “a madman” and explained why he believes Trump suffers from “malignant narcissism.”
Gartner, of course, hasn’t personally evaluated Trump. Still, he’s sure Trump “truly doesn't care if he destroys us all. In fact, there's a part of Trump that would almost take glee in it.” Gartner added for good measure, “He's impulsive, he's erratic, he's seeing the world in a grossly distorted way. 
How does Gartner know? “Trump tortures anyone who doesn't give him what he wants.” Oh... 
The president, according to the shrink, is in a state of deterioration. A characteristic of malignant narcissists like Trump is that “when they gain power, they become more inflamed in their grandiosity and in their paranoia.” In Trump’s case, what many would see as a show of confidence expected of a leader, Gartner sees as a delusion of “papal infallibility.”......[ ] 
The interview and long distance diagnosis represented just one more small-minded attack on the President. Instead of taking on his policy decisions in a civilized argument, the media has once again resorted to slandering his mental health instead. Since CNN's poodle boy Brian Stelter’s opinion wasn't enough, the media once again trots out a pseudo-medical expert like Dr. Gartner who doesn't know, nor has ever even been in the presence of the subject, but with enough lack of professionalism to be willing to support their claims.

And I don't know about you guys, but I have about as much respect for Psychiatrist as I do psychics. They're both cons, talk a bunch of crap and take peoples money. Besides Dr. Gartner, you don't need no costly, high highfalutin' degree in Psychiatry or such voodoo of the mind stuff to pronounce someone you don't know to be crazy, cause we can hear the same nonsense about DJT's mental health every day from that whacked-out bint Joy Behar on 'The View'. And she just has an English degree.....and probably makes a whole lot more money than you.  🙌

Would You Care For A Little Hell Fire and Brimstone with That Blooming Onion?

We have all heard the saying "They have too much time on their hands" and "Idle hands are the devil workshop". Well, here is one great example of just that. 

SJW with an obviously under nourished vegan brain and WAY too much time on their hands is accusing the Outback Steakhouse of running a satanic cult after its chain of restaurants were found to be suspiciously located in several cities across the country. The restaurants controversial association was uncovered by the Twitter user who, with the help of Google maps and Microsoft Paint, showed that the restaurants were geo-located conveniently in the shape of a pentagram in places like New York, Indianapolis, Phoenix and Atlanta, and has garnered some 116,000 retweets and more than 3,000 comments.

Following the shocking discovery, several other amateur sleuths uncovered the same trend in Cincinnati, North Carolina, Tennessee, Miami, Texas, Philadelphia and Virginia.

Obviously this is a carefully staged Russian operation led by Vlad Putin himself.  Same they did with KFC ... anyone remember the coup d'etat when Colonel Sanders took over? 

But, like a smart corporation, Outback hasn't entirely ignored the claims and has played along, turning it into an online ad campaign by playfully using the debacle to promote their Blooming Onion appetizer.

Actually, the only thing evil about Outback Steakhouse is the friggin' demonic prices that they charge.......

To Liberals, Diversity Has Become Just Another Affirmative Action Program

Diversity is a thread that runs deep in the makeup of America. People of all colors and backgrounds have been given the opportunity thrive, to become successful and prosper. But like everything they clutch, liberals now insist on turning our natural self propelled natural diversity into a Affirmative Action Program.

CNN Host Called For U.S. Flag Bearer at Olympics 
to Step Aside for Muslim Fencer

PJM - The host of the CNN show "United Shades of America" called on Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, to forgo the honor of carrying the American flag at the head of the American delegation and allow a Muslim female fencer to carry it instead.

Kamau Bell penned a column on the CNN website saying that Phelps should withdraw in the name of "diversity."

“What I’m trying to say is that as far as America is concerned, you are a golden boy … literally. You getting the opportunity to carry the flag is like Michael Jordan getting a free pair of Nike sneakers.
You are both the living embodiment of the “honor” you are getting.
To put it another way, in the Make-Your-Own-Ice-Cream-Sundae-Bar of life, your sundae is lousy with hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, extra scoops of ice cream, and so many Maraschino cherries that 5-year-old kids with mouthfuls of Maraschino cherries yell as you pass by, “THAT’S TOO MANY CHERRIES!” 
And that’s why I would be proud of you for giving up your position to Ibtihaj Muhammad. Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment. 
It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikeable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.
Muhammad carrying the flag would be nearly a one-stop inclusion shop. Muhammad is an African-American, hijab-wearing Muslim woman who is also a world class fencer. Those are all groups that could always use some more love, acceptance, and respect from this country. (And yes, I'm including fencers in this group.)
If (when) Muhammad carries the flag, that moment (and Muhammad herself) would grow into legend. We're talking bigger than just the Olympics.
Trying to unravel the skein of idiocy that runs through the entire article is a task for which I'm not suited.

But how much fun would that be?

Sunday, April 17, 2016 Writer Out Salons

This primary season has brought out the crazies in mass. The over the top, the uninitiated, the attention hungry websites and the clueless first time voters. The right has it's own wealth of these, but the crazy needle on the left always points directly to

Lately, for the most part, all Salon does is yell shrilly at people for belly dancing while white or other, but equally genocidal crimes against the proletariat. It's also become the favored home of young idiots smugly explaining the many murders of Hillary Clinton.

But in a posting Saturday they were playing deep left field crazy more than the usual. In the post by , she proclaims that a pure young person (?) should not vote at all ....maaaaybe for Bernie Sanders, but that would still be “uncomfortable”......because voting makes you complicit in the criminal enterprise that is American politics.
"Four years ago, I attended a College Democrats conference in Chicago. I set foot inside Obama’s campaign headquarters and felt the enthusiasm about his presidency first-hand. For the first time, I called myself a Democrat with confidence. Democracy empowered me. I wanted to share my enthusiasm with the entire world."
Okay, now that Danielle has clarified her credentials as a typical 'Age of Obama Millennial Idiot', it gets even better.  She drones on about Sanders winning the popular vote in the Wyoming caucus by 12%, but Clinton scored four more super-delegates. "This is a crime against the will of the people", using none other then Joe Scarborough for support, while declining to mention Hillary Clinton’s 2.4 million vote lead in “the will of the people.” 
"I’m uncomfortable abstaining from the most invaluable, basic aspect of democracy. It’s a new concept for me. However, shedding my Democratic label is also new to me. 
So far, Sanders is the most competent candidate for my political positions and stances. Although I’ve been a vocal advocate for him in the past, he doesn’t meet my standards for gun control, racial justice and foreign policy. 
Previously, Sanders voted against background checks for gun purchases in Congress and explicitly explained his stance against reparations. Only recently has he started standing up for Palestinians.   
However, if Sanders somehow wins the nomination, he’ll get my vote. I’ll feel uneasy about it, but at least the Democratic ticket picked my more favorable candidate. 
Otherwise, I’ll leave that space blank...."
Boycott voting! That will definitely teach all those scum sucking plutocrats, instead of them laughing their asses off while snorting cocaine off the backsides of unartisanal, non-organic, fair-trade sex slaves. 
"In a truly democratic system, we’d have more competent, diverse candidates. Voting no longer provides me the indulgence and satisfaction it once did. I feel it does more harm than good with our current political climate. If I vote for Clinton as a rejection of Trump, or vote for Sanders to dodge a Clinton vote, what duty am I actually performing? 
When I vote for a president I don’t support, I support a flawed political system. I refuse that system."
NOTE: Danielle Corcione would like to move to Narnia, where unicorns run free so she can vote for Aslan, who is Jesus and stands up for Palestinians the right way instead of only doing so just recently.
