Liberal Women – Make up Your Minds Already

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh discussed a YouTube video of a young woman that went viral. The woman, who looked to be in her 20s, was filmed for 10 hours silently walking the streets of Manhattan.

She wasn’t dressed provocatively, in a black and white T-shirt and black jeans. She was okay looking – certainly no beauty queen, but okay.

As she walked the streets, she said not a word, but just kept walking. Sorry – sounded like Dr. Seuss there for a minute.

The 10 hours were condensed down to a few minutes of what the video described as catcalling. Watching the video, I would hardly say that she was overly objectified, but that is obviously the message the makers of the video wish to convey – that men are predators.

The 10 hours of video must’ve been a dead bore if what they presented was the worst they had. Next time maybe use a more attractive woman that might elicit the base responses you’re searching for. Just some advice from a caveman.

Anyway, sure, there were a couple of creeps that actually walked alongside of her for a bit, but really nothing over the top. Many were just, “How you doin today?”

The video was presented by Hollaback and it claims to be dedicated to the eradication of “street harassment”. The display at the end of the video claimed over 100+ incidences of verbal harassment in the 10 hours. You may link to the video here. read more

Standards Must Be Maintained – Especially in the Military

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of days ago an article was posted by Aaron MacLean entitled “Pressure Grows for Marines to Lower Standards for Women“.

Naturally I was intrigued and concerned. Heck, anyone who understands the job of our military should be concerned by that headline. One doesn’t have to have served to get that the military has high standards for a reason.

The article has to do with the Marine IOC (Infantry Officer Course) and its initial CET (Combat Endurance Test). Actually the article has more to do with military being increasingly run as a social experiment rather than a fighting force.

MacLean reports the 24 women had attempted the CET and none made it all the way through.

The Marines, as are the other branches, are being pushed to introduce women into combat roles, so when three women (not part of the original 24) made it through the initial stage, the news was widely reported and heralded. Yet when all three of the women were dropped for not meeting later physical requirements, MacLean found but one report – the Christian Science Monitor.

The three women, as well as three men, failed on a 9 mile hike. They had, according to the Monitor report, three hours to move 9 miles caring 124 pound packs. After falling behind for a second time, they were out. read more

Conundrum

 Conundrum
Free people are not equal.

Equal people are not free.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized. read more

A Disturbing Trend – A Must Read!

from WARFIGHTER:

Why are we getting out? It’s about the low standards.

We joined because we wanted to be part of an elite organization dedicated to doing amazing things in defense of our nation. We wanted to make a contribution to something great, to be able to look back at a decisive chapter in American history and say “yeah, I was part of that.” We joined the Corps because if we were going in to the fight, we wanted to serve with the best. We wanted the kind of job that would make our friends who took soulless, high-paying corporate jobs feel pangs of jealousy because we went to work every day with a purpose. read more

The Right to Be Muslim Free

by: the Common Constitutionalist
Recently MailOnline posted an article regarding a gun range owner in Arkansas. The posting wasn’t about a spotless safety record. It didn’t regard the owner’s advocacy for gun rights or the second amendment. They didn’t write about a successful woman owned small business. No, it wasn’t a feel-good story.

Evidently Ms. Jan Morgan, the owner of Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, has declared her establishment “Muslim Free”.

Well, hearing this, CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sprang into action. Did they protest her establishment? Did they contact Ms. Morgan to meet with her and try to belay her “irrational” fear? No, of course not.

They did what all radical organizations do in America. They whined to the federal government on the grounds of racial and religious discrimination.

CAIR, the well-known, at least to us, front group of the Muslim Brotherhood with ties to Hamas, asked the “Social” Justice Department, Civil Rights Division, to investigate Ms. Morgan.

As an aside, can we all just stop with the “racist” claims against Muslims? Muslim isn’t a race. There are Muslims of practically every race on earth. Drives me nuts! read more

Hamas Dirty Tricks

from Breitbart:

Remember the story of the four kids killed on the beach by Israeli ordnance in Gaza?

Of course you do. It was the one that set the tone for the entire media coverage of the summer’s Israel-Gaza conflict. Here was the evidence – or so it seemed – that wanton Israeli aggression was leading to the needless deaths of innocent civilians, in this case four boys who had been playing football moments earlier and now lay in bloodied rags on the beach.

The story was reported by the Independent, the Huffington Post, Reuters, Channel 4 News, the Times, the Telegraph, NBC News, CNN, the Washington Post, and others, none of them questioning the premise that Israel was to blame for the deaths of the children.

And why should the media have doubted it? The entire sorry event  had, after all, been witnessed by numerous members of the international press corps, among them NBC reporter Ayman Mohyeldin, who tweeted that he had been playing football with the boys just minutes before the Israeli ordnance struck. read more

Ain’t No Stoppin the Amnesty Train

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The King has spoken! There is no stopping it – mass amnesty. The train is powered up, just waiting at the station for the green light from Obama. Nothing can (or should I say will) stop it. Not the states, which will bear the heavy burden of supporting these millions of “dreamers”, the Congress and certainly not the Senate.

No, this train is leaving the station. Now it’s just a question of when. We all know it will be after the midterms, about a month from now, but regardless of the election outcome, Obama will pull the trigger before year-end.

Recent developments, however, have some calling into question the wisdom of the open border/amnesty policy. You may have heard – it’s a minor ailment, a little something that’s been going around – Ebola.

Some actually have the audacity to say that we should be canceling all flights to and from the affected African countries. Our administration and their supporters think this is just a silly overreaction – that disallowing flights to and from America will just isolate those poor countries and hamper relief efforts. read more

American Islamists – A Common Denominator

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What would happen if two, three, four, half a dozen KKK members were caught over a period years burning crosses on black citizens lawns or supporting the cross burners? And then it was discovered that all these “unrelated” Klan members attended the same Christian church.

And what would then happen if authorities discovered that the Christian church was just a front for KKK racial terrorism and the church had been radicalizing individuals? What would the FBI do? What would Homeland Security do? What would the President order authorities to do?

Most likely, shut down the Christian church pending further investigation – seizing all records, computers and correspondence.

And how many politicians would object to its closure, however temporary? How many news outlets would object to the action and report on it?

How many would be outraged and demand something be done if the pastor of this Christian church called for a “purified” whites only state?

Well, the answer should be obvious. No politician, or very few, would object to the closure and vigorous investigation of this church. Every mainstream media outlet would burning up the airwaves with wall-to-wall coverage. Every reporter would be busy digging up information on the church and every attendee for the last 20 years. read more

Confirming a Ginsburg Clone

by: the Common Constitutionalist:

Recently Harry Enten at FiveThirtyEight.com wrote a piece on Ruth “Buzzy” Ginsberg of the Supreme Court. He began by quoting her from an interview she gave Elle magazine published last week, were Ginsburg said, “If I resign anytime this year, [President Obama] could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see on the court.… So anybody who thinks if I step down, Obama could appoint someone like me, their misguided.”

Enten disagrees, saying that he believes a Ginsburg clone would in fact be confirmed today. He explains the Ginsburg flew through the “confirmation process in 1993 with 96 votes, including 41 Republicans.”

96 of 100 senators voted for the Ginsburg disaster. Pitiful! My how some things don’t change from decade to decade. The Senate then, just like now, houses mostly conformist establishment big government Republicans, most who feel they just confirm anyone the president nominates, unless it’s a Republican president.

Ginsburg was a former ACLU attorney and last I checked it isn’t nor ever has been a constitutionally conservative organization. Just knowing that, I would have voted against her. Any representative of the ACLU would automatically be disqualified, in my book. But then I’m not a learned Senator. read more
