There is nothing better than to have the smug “writers” at HuffPo arrogantly lecture us common folk on the virtues of compassion. Of course, the HuffPo definition of compassion means that either you completely agree with their designated big government solution to solving any societal ill or you are just a greedy soul sucking Conservative that likes to fashion cereal bowls out of the skulls of children and the elderly.
Getting lucky with a lottery ticket usually makes one feel like a winner… that is of course unless you live in Illinois where it is very likely that the state will once again be handing out IOUs instead of money when people win. For the residents of Illinois this is old news as they went through this last year for around six months when the state’s budget crisis forced the state to stop payments to lottery winners temporarily until a short-term budget deal could be hammered out and as the Daily Herald reports, “Illinois Lottery winners might — again — face the prospects of not being paid their jackpots in a timely manner if no spending deal is struck by the end of the month.”
It has been a couple of months since Hollywood elite have graced us with a virtue signaling montage video. You know the ones where they cut from one star to the next and are all dramatically reading from the same script like the oxygen deprived zombies. Apparently plotting the assassination of the President leaves plenty of time for Hollywood hypocrites to give us another one of these gems…
You ever see irony in action? Irony in action is when the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights launches a hotline for people to snitch on “hate speech” on the exact same day that the US Supreme Court hands down a decision that says so called “hate speech” is protected by the first amendment. An excerpt on the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights declares, “In no uncertain terms, hate-motivated speech and actions have no place in Minneapolis nor will they be tolerated. Activities such as these are against the law. No one is above the law.”
Words matter. The Left has declared war on what you think and even what you say and the words you choose to say. If you are able to define the lists of allowable words and even begin painting benign words and phrases as some sort of code for deep seated racism and sexism then you gain an advantage in any debate as your opponent first has to debunk these ridiculous and often spurious attacks before they can even begin the process of debating the core issue.
Back in April I wrote about how the Left was attacking this as a vulnerable seat in “Democrats Seek to Stack the Deck in Peach Tree State Special Election.” In that blog I had outlined how the Democrats had cherry picked a candidate that did not live in the district and donations and celebrities endorsements from outside the district had come pouring in to support Ossoff. Fast forward three months and the situation remains the same.
Yes it is disgusting. Yes it is despicable. Yes I could probably come up with another 40 adjectives that would describe what I personally think of Shakespeare in the Park’s ‘Julius Caesar’ and their latest version where they are depicting the assassination of Julius Caesar as red power tie wearing doppelganger of our President Donald Trump. While I think it is unbridled hateful dogwhistling from lunatic Leftists who still cannot believe that America rejected their world view; it is not illegal. While I may call what they are doing distasteful, disrespectful and without any artistic merit they are still within their legal right to perform the play. Let me repeat this again… while we may not like it… NOT ILLEGAL.
