Democratic Debate #1 Stream of Conciousness

The rules will be the same as last time. I'll see things, I'll say things. This time, I'll occasionally throw in time stamps, in the hopes that this will be readable this time. Also, unless this gets too long, I believe I'll just do the whole thing in one post.

The Pregame

CNN in Espanol? I hope they don't pander in Spanish as well... well, at least then I won't have to understand it!
8;05 PM: Anderson Cooper admits Democrats are boorish.
8:08 PM; "They've all come prepared." Good, then this will hopefully be better than the Republicans...
8:10 PM: A half-hour pregame? Politics really are just football for nerds.
8:13 PM: "We are just minutes away" 16 minutes is not equal to "minutes away."
8:16 PM: "The candidates are going to try to move to the left." If Bernie Sanders were any more to the left, he'd be in Nascar...
8:23 PM: "Only a few minutes away" 7 minutes is not "a few"

Or Get off the Pot

I blame the ongoing feminization of America for political candidates not being able to commit to say running for office or not. Shit or get off the pot! You think you look like Cincinnatus, but really you just look like every other dithering politician who can't pick his nose without consulting his media team. If you want to be a leader, show leadership and just take what you want.

Meat Culture

So a recent survey of British vegetarians conducted by Voucher Codes Pro showed that 37% ate meat when drunk. Given what lefties (which vegetarians often are) think alcohol does to consent, I wonder how many of those surveyed would claim the meat raped them?

Overseer of Decline

Some aspects of the 21st Century are so insane, so horribly disordered, that it is difficult to get out the words to comment on them. Like, for instance, this story, from Oliver Lane of Breitbart:

"The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.
Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009, and has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden, made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome."
A million retorts clog my throat, vying desperately with each other to get out. One piously points out,
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."(1 Corinthians 1:18)
One less reverent wonders if this so-called "Church of Sweden" is a Christian Church at all, or merely a means for smug Scandinavian liberals to sanctify their socialism? A third voice genuinely wonders how many of the Biblical requirements for the office of bishop this woman meets? I mean, she by sex fails the easy one. And a whole cacophony behind these merely wail and curse in rage at what has become of a once great civilization.

No One Knows

"But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." (Matthew 24:36)

"no one knows..."


And yet, to this day, men insist on disgracing their Lord by stating that they know the thing that He very clearly states that they don't.

To quote Mark Molloy's somewhat tongue-in-cheek article of October 6, 2015 in the Telegraph:
"Chris McCann, leader of the eBible fellowship and all-round God expert, believes the world will be engulfed and destroyed by a great fire on October 7.
The founder of the fellowship has been delivering his Doomsday warnings in his five-part podcast series, Why October 7, 2015, is the likely end of the world.
“According to what the Bible is presenting, it does appear that October 7 will be the day that God has spoken of,” he explains.
I don't recall that part of the Bible. Remind me of how Bronze Age Hebrews used the Gregorian calendar.

A Simple Decision

We can either have immigration, or we can have civilization. Choose one. European Civilization was made by Europeans. Middle Eastern civilization was made by Middle Easterners. The people you let into your country are the society that you will, in time, live in. Where do you want to live?

He Kept us Out of War

President Barack Obama, for his many flaws, has actually not been all bad. And as much as he will eventually have to answer for, his unwillingness to commit to a ground war has, without a doubt, saved innumerable American lives. The sad fact is, no matter how bad the past eight years have been, they could have been worse.

Now President Obama certainly suffers from no fewer delusions than the rest of his set:
"Iran and Assad make up Mr. Putin’s coalition at the moment. The rest of the world makes up ours"
Nonetheless, delusions like these, almost universally held by the chattering classes, become somewhat more forgivable in the face of this admission:
