Re: “Skunked

The pious have cried and the county commissioners reacted with a knee jerk " throw the baby out with the bath water ".
When cannabis is flowering and brings a succulent order much like day lilies or roses....

This is just another case of " I hate the cannabis people" ...they smell....
" "I kind of decided it was something I wanted to go out of my office with," McLaughlin says.

She compares the odor affecting property owners in rural parts of the county to a neighbor McLaughlin once had who played music too loud. She adds that the smell of cannabis primarily impacts people who didn't want to legalize marijuana with statewide Initiative 502 in the first place."
Lets just grow up and use common sense and quit whining about your supposed loss of property value

Re: “Skunked

Just as an illustration. In a free society a 'county' does not get to dictate how people manage their private property just as in a society with a free press does not allow the government to dictate the content of newspapers. In a free society a squeaky wheel will go to a court and file a case for damages rather then complaining to their local politburo to inform on their neighbor regarding their private business and whether or not they are using 'their' property in accordance with what leviathan has demanded of them. Know that, like with Negan, everything is consumed by that great whale and so we are all of his domain; you are not free!

Re: “In Defense of Refugees

Another classic obfuscation. If immigrants did not receive welfare I doubt they would be that controversial. Indeed, if they did not receive welfare, a great many wouldn't even have an incentive to come. The plight of the main character in this story is entirely sympathetic, but the author does not visit upon the issue entirely, but only in regards to the sentiments of snowflakes. He seems to be intent on misunderstanding the objections to the immigration-complex in this wretch of a country. He seems to think that there is a class of evil-bigot out there that hates these people for who they are and where they came from; which is probably why he dwells on the vain and boring sentiments rather than to perform analysis. After all, it was not long ago that this poor snowflake was smugly declaring that there is such a thing as an "undocumented citizen" which is sort of like saying "talented journalist" in this day and age. It is an allocation to a class that does not exist.

I do not doubt these people are scared. Having welfare usurped can always be alarming, but to that plight, I am not sympathetic at all. Further, if these poor and hapless immigrants are being preached to by these snowflakes it is entirely possible that their fears are unfounded like much of the sentiments of a tepid snowflake. Just like the Khan scam this summer, there is a complex of welfare that surrounds immigrants. And not only do the immigrants receive the bounty, but also depraved do-gooders, of which the "gold star" Khan was one.

Frankly, I quit reading this boring piece once I got to the third sub-heading. I was curious, what sort of defense this would be; I was also curious at how the offense would be conceptualized. In both cases I am loath to admit that this sort of "journalism" is really part of the problem. It does a bad job defending immigrants. Moreover, it does an even worse job stating/understanding the offense. Words that come to mind to describe this sort of intellectual affair is 'sophistry' or even 'demagoguery' and all wound up with dis-eloquent platitudes.

Re: “Hitting the Wall

You snowflakes are always talking up the SPLC as if they are some esteemed source and not Morris Dees slush-fund of hate and Bill Morlin's retirement fund. The hate-crime epidemic is establishment optics...

Case and point is this:

The methodology for this "survey" is the biggest load of horse-apples and is derived--INTRINSICALLY DERIVED!--from hearsay. The SPLC either employs researchers that are damned fools or they intentionally release these sorts of surveys to even bigger idiots whom bounce it in the establishment echo chamber. The SPLC relies on this sort of reflexive stenography from the cadres of establishment journalists in order to keep their endowment. The endowment of this quaint hate-group is over $300 million dollars and growing, with special thanks to the snowflakes.

But back to the methodology. This survey was sent out not as a sample but en masse; most likely to people on the leftish side of the idiots gambit called political ideology. It implores teachers, which are as much an agent of leviathan as any pig, to report hate to them. The survey is performed in such a way that it cannot have statistical integrity and cannot therefore be said to have any probabilistic value or accuracy but for the sentiments of the ignorant. Nonetheless, the snowflakes are snowing it down on all of us. Don't be deceived.

And journalists? Why? Why are you so gullible? Why are your principles built upon wind veins? Do you not hold opinions? I just do not understand this crying. And to peel off the act of "hating" as a crime in itself is so Orwellian. Crime is hate embodied. I hate tyranny, which is why I am so hard on you people. You should know better. I expect you too! And even if you think that expectation is unfair, I do not care, I will hold it anyway. Spokane did not always have such a talent-less pool of hacks writing to her peeps. Isabel Paterson, for a time, was a writer in Spokane. No, not for the Spokesman, I do not know of any talent that has ever emerged from that cesspool. I think she wrote for the herald. But she was talented, perhaps the last talented one in Spokane. I believe she was on to greener pastures before WWI had even started, but she got her editorial chops here! You idiots could learn by her example if not from her prose. How could she emerge talented and brilliant while you wallow in the squalor of your love of your own opinions and righteousness?

Isabel wrote a book called the ghost in the machine. She also had the courage to oppose the new deal. She was an 'America First' kind of person, not like the limp wristed losers that now write for America's deadwood. Such a pathetic bunch, if I was a journalist I would be ashamed if I didn't protest that coy depravity of spirit. But then, I am not depraved and therefore I am ill suited to be a journalist.

Isabel's "Ghost in the Machine" is a brilliant book. And inside that book there is an essay that is titled "The Humanitarian with the Guillotine" which lays out in beauty what the establishment continuously fails to see of themselves. The establishment, it seems to me, takes great joy in spreading their goodness through wicked means. They seek to end all suffering by identifying those that it wishes to make suffer on your behalf. No one, in such a depraved system, can be certain that they themselves will not be the target of this means, for it is the means of violence that is to be abhorred, and not merely to apply violence to the appropriate people.

So what did Isabel say of you snowflakes? Here:

"Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends."

On this account, I do declare all of you journalist snowflakes to be "good people" but you have myopia for your own evil. You do not have the intent of evil, but your actions produce great evil. Stalin didn't starve 3 million Ukrainians because he was a bastard. He did it for the greater good and the soviet revolution; the greater good is the calling card of the SPLC.

She ends the work with:
"The philanthropist, the politician, and the pimp are inevitably found in alliance because they have the same motives, they seek the same ends, to exist for, through, and by others. And the good people cannot be exonerated for supporting them. Neither can it be believed that the good people are wholly unaware of what actually happens. But when the good people do know, as they certainly do, that three million persons (at the least estimate) were starved to death in one year by the methods they approve, why do they still fraternize with the murderers and support the measures? Because they have been told that the lingering death of the three millions might ultimately benefit a greater number. The argument applies equally well to cannibalism."

Prove her wrong snowflakes.

Re: “Hitting the Wall

The persons responsible for hate crimes are the persons who commit them. Explicitly or implicitly blaming hate crimes on Trump turns the issue into a political argument that distracts from the crime and its victim(s), unnecessarily creating controversy. On the other hand, if the goal is to create argument and division, blaming Trump or his "deplorable" supporters is a good strategy.

Re: “Trumped-up Education

The Union argues against choice based on the false premise that it's bad for public schools. But charter schools and other such choices can be successful at the same time public schools are also successful.

Re: “In Defense of Refugees

I'm afraid any refugee should be afraid, since as white males third and fourth generation Americans, in our 60s who happen to be gay, are each day braced for making a run for the border.

Re: “Fuel Us Twice?

You can get a permit for most anything, especially when you promise politicians rosy projections. "Regulating" permitted activity under capitalism - the goal of which is endless growth and profit - is another story altogether. Said capitalist high priest Milton Friedman, "The social responsibility of business is profit". Profit. Period. Not a pure aquifer. Not public health. Not corporate responsibilty. No. None of that. Profit. Period.
