Leftists Are The Enemy

One of the best articles of the year. I have been saying this for a long time. Random thought: in this context it should be apparent to the American people that to leftists like Obama, San Bernadino is acceptable collateral damage to live in a “tolerant, multi-cultural, diverse” society. This is crazy, but I am sure that is how he and other leftists view it. I doubt the family members agree. If you agree with me, you should never vote for a Democrat.

Paris Climate Change Conference Accomplishes Nothing

Thankfully! Don’t believe the breathless pronouncements from the left-wing media or wild claims from the Obama administration. The latest climate change confab accomplished nothing other than a non-binding “agreement” to reduce emissions down the road, with zero legal force behind it. Given the complete fraud that is climate change, this is a good thing.

Far Left Lies and Hate

Just what you would expect from a fish-wrap like the Daily News, calling the head of the NRA a “terrorist”. Little do these pin-heads know that this will likely cause NRA membership to rise even further.

The far-left is out to lie about and smear anyone who opposes them, whether it be guns, climate change, race, immigration or whatever. The right needs to fight back with equal but truthful rhetoric. Time to call the left “Muslim sympathizers” (they are), and maybe even “traitors”.

RIP Scott Weiland

Away from the usual topics of this site, Scott Weiland, former frontman of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver passed away last night. As a big fan of 90’s alternative and grunge, STP ranks among my two favorite bands along with Nirvana. In fact, I rank them among my favorite bands of all-time.

The charismatic Weiland was known for his low-level singing style and slithering stage presence. He and his fellow band-mates in STP never received the critical acceptance they deserved while they were together despite huge commercial success, often being derided as a Seattle rip-off. With their plodding break-out hit “Plush”, STP was dismissed as a “second-rate Pearl Jam”. However, things started to change with the release of their second album Purple and their third album Tiny Music, my personal favorite. Each release was a distinct departure from the previous, illustrating the bands song-writing and musical talents.

Critical acceptance finally came to the band in later years as well as the recognition of their influence on alternative and hard rock. As amateur guitarist, STP has had a big influence on me. Their songwriting style was unique with chord progressions few if any other bands have used. When combined with their varied arrangements and Weiland’s distinctive vocals, STP was a true original. I feel fortunate to have seen the reunited STP in 2008. Their performance did not disappoint.

Weiland battled addiction for years. So while his passing is not a surprise it is nonetheless very sad.

The Funniest Line I Heard All Day

A friend in SoCal, who has no love for the left in this country, humorously referred to yesterday’s shootings as “climate-change induced workplace violence”.

While on the subject of climate-change, the left likes to portray its opponents as “deniers”. The real deniers are those on the left. We need to call them “Islamic Terror Deniers”.
