    Two observant left-wing commentators commenting on leftist dysfunction

    Thought some might be interested in this (long) video of two left-wingers, Matt Taibbi and Bret Weinstein, discussing the problems with the left. There was a lot that was interesting, but I most remember Weinstein's comment starting at 42 minutes, 45 seconds that the nutty left-wing force is...

    Washington state mayor now calls BLM protests ‘domestic terrorism’ after her home vandalized

    They would demand the government pay for it. They have high income jobs, take lots of vacations, buy new cars on a regular basis, etc. yet they are constantly saying the "government" (meaning taxpayers) should pay for their childcare, student loans, etc. These aren't destitute people.

    Washington state mayor now calls BLM protests ‘domestic terrorism’ after her home vandalized

    There are some people I know who live in very nice suburbs who deserve this exact treatment. I don't doubt they would have the exact reaction as the mayor and ESPN writer despite their support for the riots.

    Could you have to pay your bank to save money?

    Yeah, that's part of the reason the powers that be want to eliminate paper money, so you have to pay the negative interest rates. There have been articles touting that advantage of eliminating cash: people won't be able to hold on to their money, so they have to spend it or put it in banks or...

    Negative interest rates

    There have been articles in the past few years arguing that governments should get rid of cash because when governments charge negative interest rates in a cashless society people will have no choice but to either pay the negative rates, spend more, or invest. With cash, they can pull out cash...

    MLB talking about opening up season

    Anthony Rendon too. I'm not an Angels (not against them or anything either) but I am a Rendon fan.

    Do You Love The World?

    When my mom was dying of cancer she apparently told my dad (who is still alive and did not have cancer) she wanted them to die together. I think it was that fear you speak of.

    How do you deal with people who disappoint you?

    I'm guessing your daughters are adults? If they're teenagers or even early twenties the lying and overall immaturity might stop, but if they're older it seems less likely. Regardless, I don't think there is a biblical obligation for you to continue to see them unless they ask for forgiveness...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's stunning response to ‘God put you in a wheelchair’ tweet

    Every so often someone on twitter tweets that or something like that at Governor Abbott. He always has a good response. I'd imagine he is well-practiced after almost 40 years of living in a wheelchair.

    3 Rockets launched from Gaza into Israel

    The open source intel accounts on Twitter are a very good source of information on this sort of thing.

    Young religious Turks growing skeptical of Islam - Report

    I can understand why they move to atheism or something else from being radical/pious Muslims. Given they had the strength to do that in a society that looks down on that decision they might very well be the sort who would become Christian at some point. While Turkey still isn't as stringent as...

    Studies: Pregnant victims of sexual assault usually choose life

    "just 1.0 percent of women obtain an abortion because they became pregnant" --I think during rape exams victims are now given the option of taking the morning after pill so they don't become pregnant. I think some pro-life politicians have missed an opportunity when asked about pregnancy as a...

    Are you a prepper?

    Yeah, even if you're armed to the teeth and willing to fight if you're in a populated area you're probably in trouble. It seems there are instances in the bible of what could be called prepping (Joseph, Noah). Knowing the signs of the times, it doesn't seem unreasonable to do something for...

    Jussie Smollett charges dropped

    I believe he had a previous conviction on a DUI and providing false information to the police stemming from providing a false identity during the DUI arrest... Regardless of the cost of prosecution, I would think the city would want to send a message that false reports that waste time and money...

    How to respond to my niece (who is "bisexual")

    Amen. I think the passive-aggressive social media posts are for the attention and affirmation 15-year-olds love. I also think a lot of the time (though not always) when a girl or young woman claims she is bisexual it is so she will be seen as different, sexy, and cool but she won't be so...

    Refugees should be sent home even if they have jobs, says Danish immigration official

    Switzerland is not a part of the EU so that helps protect them. It seems Denmark has been an outsider EU member like the UK on certain issues for awhile (currency, immigration).

    Harvard Study: Christianity is growing stronger, not shrinking

    One of the questions asks about "praying daily" which is probably a decent proxy for relationship. They also talk about frequency of attendance at religious services, which has generally been shown to be better at predicting certain outcomes as compared to just attitudinal questions ("how do...

    IRS Admits It Encourages Illegals To Steal Social Security Numbers For Taxes

    It was stories like this one that convinced me that lots of people in power in the U.S. don't want borders and are increasingly emboldened to erase them. I remember back when Koskinen testified and this came out he said "we want them to pay taxes." But they knew a) they weren't paying taxes...

    And this isn't the worst of them. Her other comments and her association with Farrakhan should be mentioned along with this, otherwise she can get away with saying "any funding in politics from any source can be criticized" and "any country can be criticized." A lot of people agree with those...
