Ignore Lena Dunham´s
´Girls´ at Your Own
Peril, Conservatives

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Kurt Schlichter

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/29/2013 9:36:27 PM

There’s plenty about Girls to annoy conservatives, yet this often creepy, usually skeevy, critically-acclaimed HBO series is also a test for conservatives. Will we finally heed Andrew Breitbart´s warnings about the importance of taking pop culture seriously or just keep fiddling as the culture burns? If conservatives are going to be in the popular culture – and act to change it – they can’t simply ignore shows like Girls that capture the zeitgeist, even if the zeitgeist makes their skin crawl. Season two is well under way, and conservatives need to participate

No, I don´t need to watch ´Girls´ or any other liberal trash just so I can "related" to liberals. I can find a common ground with the lefties I know by discussing sports, kids, schools, taxes, you name it. Just because the in-crowd in Hollywood says this show is good or important doesn´t make it so - just check its ratings vs. The Big Bang Theory or even The Mentalist.

Lena could be in a biker bar at 2am and would still end up going home alone.

Yeah, the desperation of the homely girls who try and boost their low level of attraction by being outrageous, crude and aggressive, is new. Humanity hasn´t seen this old act until a cable network created this stupid show. Oh, hurry and curry the favor of that demographic.

How about instead of pandering to low information morons and losing to the party that invents new ways to pander, confront the fools. Engage this loser and force her and her ilk to defend the absurd.

Lena is the kind of "girl" who is a two at 10 and a 10 at two.

We keep being told that conservatives have to participate in the culture. Ok, how? I´m not going to watch this carp or support it with my entertainment dollars. Conservative movies consistently make more money than progressive hogwash, yet impact on the culture rot appears minimal. I´m not a Hollywood producer, director, or writer. Just exactly what does "participate" in the culture mean?

So, in order to communicate with the ´hook-up´ crowd, do I have to actively participate to prove I´m cool, and can then talk to others about how drained and empty it makes me feel?

Sorry, we are at the point of the roller coaster ride where we´re past the apex and the brakes are off.

If you think girls are crude and going feral, it is nothing compared to what is coming. Every cultural barrier is crumbling. Women in combat strikes down one of the West´s longest standing distinctions - that women are to be protected and valued. No more, say the ´girls´ generation. Women are crude and venal. And, they are capable of giving and receiving violence.

This culture is like an alcoholic in a downward spiral, seeking the lesson-learned bottom. We can only pray that the bottom will be shallow, for the sake of our daughters.

#9, agree with you. Just look at the way girls look (tattoos, piercings), speak and behave. Then they wonder why young men don´t respect them.

I won´t watch the show precisely because of what it is. I work to make sure my children, and the other young people in my orbit, know how vapid, shallow and evil shows like "Girls" are. We actually had a family discussion over the holidays, with the older generation telling the younger that you don´t lower yourself to watching crap just because everyone else is watching it.

I believe Mr Schlihter´s premise is: how can one intelligently critique a program such as Girls without having seen it? Not that one needs to watch each and every episode but in order to make the conservative point in discussions, one needs to be familiar with the subject matter. I would rather walk on hot coals instead of watch something like Sex In The City but it is nigh on impossible to discuss such pop culture aspects without a basic knowledge of the subject.

You would not be able to teach history without understanding the subject; the same goes for educating brain-dead liberals about Girls.

I´m always suspicious when a show is described as "critically acclaimed". It´s usually a way of saying few people are actually watching it. With so many channels to choose from, a show needs a relatively small audience to stay on the air. Recently read the "30 Rock" was the most talked about show that nobody was watching. Never higher than about 64th in the ratings.
Also don´t forget that "Girls" is the show where Brian Williams watches his daughter´s nude sex scenes. Creepy and disgusting beyond words.

This show seems to be popular with the younger crowd, those who are constantly lamenting their student loan debt. Isn´t HBO considered a premium cable channel that costs extra for subscription. Maybe pass on HBO and keep up those loan payments.

You don´t have to lay down in pig feces to know that it stinks, or comment intelligently about the filth and it´s hazards to your health.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

   

 



 
Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
