I get the feeling that there is a candidate out there so desperate for attention that he literally could not care how his name is being used as long as it is. This is the type of man that may, I don't know put his name on giant buildings, or "universities". So I am not giving him any place in my vocabulary today*. There are more than enough evils out in the world that I can rail on here in the Watercooler. Why give the biggest egomaniac running anymore free press.
She Did It! You go girl! Hillary Clinton finally did something she promised to... she created jobs. Lots of them for all different sorts of folks in the FBI. According to Twitchy (link above) of the 13,000 or so agents in the FBI's employ 147 of them are or have worked on this case. Hillary does care about the every man trying to make a living investigating white collar crimes. She cares so much that not even the threat of losing her parties nomination will keep her from doing her part to make sure that the every agent has something to do. God bless you Hillary, for making sure that these brave men and women are never left behind**. Like the ones you left in Benghazi.
Islamic Extremists; Islam practiced in its "extremist" form is not just a threat to the proverbial West. It is a threat to humanity and to civilization as we understand it. I know that to a Red State reader this is not breaking news, but this story caught my eye. In the last few weeks we have become inundated with the large scale assault being waged in Brussels and in Pakistan. But a Muslim in Scotland also lost his life. Not with a suicide vest strapped to his chest but at the hands of another follower of allah. This moderate sensible small business owner had the audacity to post this to his Facebook page...
"Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation. Let's follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds,"
For his efforts to promote peace and unity he was killed. Message received loud and clear and you can bet others who do not want war will remember this next time they consider speaking against extremism.
Bill Maher Is Right***; About one thing and this one thing only people.
“If a non-rich or non-white person said the things he says they wouldn’t put him in the White House, they’d put him in Bellevue,” he said.
“We can’t make a crazy person commander in chief, there are actual job requirements. It’s not like Mardi Gras parade king. Do I think President Trump would actually disappear people? No, but I can’t rule it out."
Gender Neutral Bathrooms; LGBTQRXD (I add the QRXD just to ensure I am being sensitive to any yet diagnosed sexual persuasions) activists want me to believe that I am a bigot for insisting that it is against the law for a man to remove his sexual organ from his pants in a room that my daughters or wife may be in. You see they say that here in America we have rights, and in they're backwards disgusting minds we have the rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and to pee where ever we see fit. The problem is that logic is losing this argument. As outlined in the linked story major corporations who you and I support every day are joining in the fight to take away the rights of 99.8% of the population to appease the insanely small percentage of folks who want to make a point. See we are no longer arguing with a few guys wearing leather chaps doing the YMCA. We are fighting against Apple, the NBA, Disney, and Nike. These companies may never change my or your position on this subject but be assured they have already gotten to the next generation. As trend setters they will reach your kids if you don't.
As always the Watercooler is an open thread a "safe place" for you to express whats on your mind. Look forward to hearing from ya'll.
*I reserve the right to forgo my boycott of using the name that shall not be spoken if he does something really dumb to piss me off in the next 24 hours.
**Even though the sarcasm was very obvious I still almost became physically ill as my fingers typed this.
***Again I considered breaking my own fingers as a penance for typing this.
