The Left’s Loopy Ideas Are Now Almost Past Parody

Written by Larry Usoff on June 7, 2019

It has finally happened.

A good example is the recent announcement by Disney CEO Bob Iger to the effect that if the State of Georgia sticks to the law they just passed where a heartbeat is detected, the studio doesn’t want to do business with Georgia.  Put it in other words, Disney likes to kill babies, and will punish, or try to, those groups that don’t.  Oh, you say that’s too harsh?

How else would anyone put it because it’s a clear-cut statement that he made.  Iger said it wouldn’t be “practical” for them to make movies in Georgia because of that law.  He added that it would be “very difficult” to continue to make movies there.  Jessica Chastain, Alyssa Milano, Amy Schumer, Brie Larsen, Mark Ruffalo, Alec Baldwin and Don Cheadle are just some that are with Iger on this ridiculous position.  Am I wrong on this but it seems to me that the studio that depends on children to see/buy their films along with the film-connected dolls and other things, is LITERALLY cutting off their future patrons?  What say you?

We are a nation of about 330 million people, not counting the 20 million or so illegal aliens or people with green cards.  Keeping that figure in mind will help as we look at a recent “shiny object” the lefty loonies are putting in front of us.  Currently, there are 15 states that have either already passed or are considering the passage of a law that would eliminate the Electoral College, in favor of the popular vote.  One argument that I heard put forth is that we get election results almost minute-by-minute and the Electoral College would slow that result from being known.  Folks, that scenario is pure BS and here’s why: When the people vote, it doesn’t matter if the result of that vote comes in minutes later or overnight, or in a case of a contested race, maybe a couple of days later.  The result, unless tampering with the votes is involved, doesn’t change.  Now let’s look at the “why” of the Electoral College.  The objective of a group called the National Popular Vote (NPV), is to influence a group of States whose electoral votes total 270, which is the number needed to win the presidency using the popular vote.  The Electoral College, in words plain and simple, is set up so that even the smallest state has the same voting power as any of the large(r) States.  This concept is important because New York, New England, and the Left Coast alone, would tilt the balance without any regard to what most of the rest of the country wanted!  Some have likened it to a scene out of a Western movie where the Sheriff is standing in front of the jail.  He’s telling the mob, who want to lynch the prisoner, that the law will be followed, and the prisoner will get a fair trial.  The mob is the NPV, and the Sheriff is the Electoral College.  If “Civics”, or any sort of curriculum about how the government works, was still being taught in schools the people advocating for NPV might have a clue as to why we have the Electoral College.  Sadly, it isn’t, and they don’t.

Lastly, a piece by an unknown author(at least to me) which perfectly describes how “stealth jihad” is being done in America.  “IT STARTS WITH A COOKIE”… Let’s not be fooled like the Europeans.  We lived for two years in Saudi Arabia and learned a lot about Islam. They lie. If you give a Muslim a cookie, he’ll complain that it isn’t Halal and demand that you provide one that is. If you give a Muslim a Halal cookie, he’ll demand that you give him a job so he can buy his own cookies. If you give a Muslim a job, he’ll demand you give him time out to pray. If you give a Muslim time out to pray, he’ll demand that you respect his prophet. If you show respect for his prophet, a Muslim will demand that you stop singing your National anthem. If you stop singing your National Anthem, a Muslim will demand that you elect him to Congress. If you elect a Muslim to Congress, he’ll demand that we change our Constitution, so we are no longer allowed to speak freely or have guns or worship the god of our choice, or not any god at all.  If we change the Constitution to what a Muslim demands, he will demand that Sharia Law be followed by everyone in the land. If Sharia is followed by everyone in the land, then Muslims will be permitted by law to execute anyone who disagrees with them or does not dress like them or does not worship Allah. Congress, you gave a Muslim a cookie. So did you, London, France, Greece. Already the newly elected congressional woman from Michigan is criticizing Vice President Pence for his Christian values and beliefs. It’s just starting.”

Parting shot: At my advanced age of 85, it’s entirely possible that may see the “surrender’ of the United States to a “foreign power”.  That last part even confuses me because the “foreign power” will be a home-grown one, born and raised in America!
