Dear White Lady, What Are You Doing to Us?
Daily Beast, by Goldie Taylor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/8/2018 5:26:12 PM

I don’t know your name and I doubt you know mine. Sometimes, we wind up in the grocery store checkout line together. We used to sit a couple of rows apart watching our kids play soccer, tee ball, or some other organized sport they roped us into. Come to think of it, our children graduated from high school in the same class. (Snip)Columnist, feminist activist and social media denizen Mona Eltahawy is out here calling you “foot soldiers of the patriarchy.”How is that? To put it plainly: Girl, what is wrong with you?”

Comments:
Of course, this is the attitude we hate. The talking down the nose, probably an unseen finger shaking at us, to tell us why we are misguided, foolish, uninformed and unsisterly. Grrrrr.

Glad you are still enjoying the plantation life. Personally I do not choose my candidate by their sex, nationality, or the color of their skin. I am not a herd animal with blinders on. I think for myself, thank you very much. I do not have to explain my vote to you. Frankly, I thank God everyday that clinton is not in the WH. Now get off my back and out of my business.

This white lady is living her own life, quite successfully without any assistance from the government, and is thinking for herself using her good brain and not her “girly bits”, as the Brits would say.

And all I’m doing to you, Mona and Goldie, is ignoring you.

Why would I vote for Hillary Clinton who not only stood by while her husband abused women, she provided cover for him by trying to destroy them. You talk about Puerto Rico and I would remind you of Haiti where the Clintons scored hundreds of millions of dollars in donation and distributed little. Lets talk about the uranium deal that also enriched that entitle piece of excrement with hundreds of millions from the Russians.... I´m tired of crooks, I voted for Trump because he is doing what he said he would do for the country and not because I admire him personally. I want people to enter this country legally and not demand entrance and I want to quit giving illegals benefits that should be going to our veterans. What is wrong with you?

Because Republican women know they are so much smarter than the vast majority of government officials that they don´t want any of them telling them what to do. They KNOW they are smart enough to take care of themselves unlike democrats (person who wrote this drivel) who rely on the government for everything.

Dear Victim,
What have you done to yourself? Why did you let the Democrats convince you that you could not live without them? Why did you believe them when they convinced you to rely on them instead of your own good sense and ability? Why didn´t you take the hand of friendship and opportunity that was offered you instead of taking up the battle axes? Did you ever read about all those people who died for your freedom? Did you know that they were our forefathers, and that we are proud of them? Do you not understand that our hands are still extended in friendship and opportunity?

Isn´t this what happens when you get your news from outfits like CNN and consider yourself a victim? I have a niece who is married to a guy from Ghana who came to the USA legally, worked at, later managed and even later bought a supermarket & is a very successful business man. He never asked for or received welfare. He has never been or behaved like a victim. How do we get many descendant´s of slave to understand what this guy understands, to behave like him and to free themselves from a past they never experienced? BTW, he is very conservative & a registered Republican.

Puerto Rico had problems because there were Puerto Ricans causing them, not because of the president.

Flint´s money was approved but not delivered by Obama. It was a priority for Trump. The water there is fine and they have more than enough (well, the city IS still run by Democrats) to replace the entire water system now.

You know, you can have opinions... but try not to have ignorant ones.

The last thing I need or want is a condescending lecture from an obvious racist about why I didn’t vote for a lying corrupt felon who intended to finish Obama’s goal to take my country down. I do not owe you an explanation nor will I defend my decision. I do not feel the least bit guilty about being white and you will never convince me otherwise. Kindly sit down. And for God’s sake shut up.

The white women the author addresses and a lot of black, brown, Asian and Native American women don’t believe that politicians can or even intend to replace self-reliance. We think we care about our lives and the lives of our friends and families more than someone in Washington DC with their own friends and families to worry about as well as protecting their career which consists of professionally convincing society’s weaklings and dopes that they will take care of them. Using other people’s money, of course. And Goldie Taylor’s problem is revealed in believing that people who disagree with her are doing something against her personally and rendering her a helpless victim.

They are smarter than you, Goldie, and more dedicated to the rule of law, the Consitution, freedom, fairness, rule of law, lower taxes, less government intrusion into their lives and against Communist central planning, massive Clinton corruption and all the other horrific baggage that Hellary and her Flying Monkeys bring with them.

They are way better than you, Goldie, and you may want to think hard on who is screwed up here. It is the person in your mirror.

A abortion is not reproductive healthcare to end an unwanted pregnancy. It´s murder. Use birth control. That´s what it´s for.

FTA: "But I really want to understand is how you—or, anyways, so many women like you—chose a man like Donald Trump over a vastly more qualified Hillary Clinton."
If she wasn´t stuck on STUPID, she could´ve focused on a life of GIVING instead of TAKING, to see the HEART instead of COLOR(White Lady),
able to Discern Right from Wrong(Hillary?!), come out of her black skin and look at things from a world of reason and sanity. This lady at her age embracing Hillary was proof "Mental Disease" has terminally infected her and she will not change her ways. She´s stuck. Republican party and Conservatives will never go away. Her only hope for a life of joy and peace is to join the Republican Party. And that´s the moment she´ll see the LIGHT!

What Bruce Ohr Told the FBI
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/18/2019 7:40:25     Post Reply
Everybody knew. Everybody of consequence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department understood fully in the middle of 2016—as the FBI embarked on its counterintelligence probe of Donald Trump—that it was doing so based on disinformation provided by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. That’s the big revelation from the transcript of the testimony Justice Department official Bruce Ohr gave Congress in August. The transcripts haven’t been released, but parts were confirmed for me by congressional sources. Mr. Ohr testified that he sat down with dossier author Christopher Steele on July 30, 2016, and received salacious information

Extinct Red Wolf DNA Discovered

Texas Monthly, by Leif Reigstad    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/17/2019 1:09:07     Post Reply
The red wolf was declared extinct in the wild in 1980, and while forty or so red wolves were captured, bred in captivity, and reintroduced into the wild in North Carolina in 1990, there have been mysterious unconfirmed reports of red wolf sightings scattered along the Texas Gulf Coast for decades. Those sightings were typically dismissed—scientists were certain coyotes were being mistaken for the elusive wolf. But now there’s some evidence indicating that red wolves may actually have a genetic presence along the coast in Texas. It all began with some roadkill.

Leslie Moonves to Pursue Arbitration for
His $120 Million Severance From CBS
Variety, by Cynthia Littleton    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/17/2019 1:06:19     Post Reply
Former CBS Corp. chairman-CEO Leslie Moonves will pursue an arbitration claim to fight CBS for the $120 million severance that he was denied last month when the company’s board of directors determined he was fired for cause. Moonves was ousted in September after multiple women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the longtime industry leader. In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Thursday, CBS disclosed that Moonves has informed the company of his plan to take the board’s decision to arbitration. A spokesman for Moonves declined to comment. “On January 16, 2019, Mr. Moonves notified the Company of his election

Saudi Arabian Flag Candy Statue Removed

A nine-foot sculpture depicting the Saudi Arabian flag in the shape of a piece of candy is reportedly being removed from its grounds near the 9/11 memorial in New York City after facing backlash. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said they’d relocate the installation, which features the words “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet” in Arabic, after many felt its proximity to Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial was insulting and insensitive. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attack on the United States were Saudi nationalists,

Mitch McConnell Rules

In the daily headlines, the government shutdown—now the longest in American history—is reported as a clash between two uncompromising forces: President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In this battle, however, the most important general may be the one who’s escaped almost all notice. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has put on full display his penchant for knowing when the best course is to do nothing. In the received wisdom, because Mr. Trump infamously welcomed a shutdown in December’s televised and contentious Oval Office meeting with Mrs. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he gets all the blame for it.

Watch Willie Nelson and George
Strait Finally Perform a Duet
Texas Monthly, by Dan Solomon    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/15/2019 7:51:54     Post Reply
Willie Nelson’s list of musical collaborators is essentially a timeline of popular music. Frank Sinatra? Wynton Marsalis? Ray Charles? Julio Iglesias? Check, check, check, check. Norah Jones, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, even Snoop Dogg? Yep. Basically every country star who ever passed through Nashville and stopped off in Texas? Of course. Yet somehow, during the course of his illustrious and highly collaborative career, there’s one epic name that Willie hadn’t added to his list: King George Strait, his fellow Texan great, whose stature rivals Willie’s when it comes to the names that have defined country music.

Women Don’t Belong in Combat Units
Wall Street Journal, by Heather MacDonald    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/14/2019 8:00:32     Post Reply
The Obama-era policy of integrating women into ground combat units is a misguided social experiment that threatens military readiness and wastes resources in the service of a political agenda. The next defense secretary should end it. In September 2015 the Marine Corps released a study comparing the performance of gender-integrated and male-only infantry units in simulated combat. The all-male teams greatly outperformed the integrated teams, whether on shooting, surmounting obstacles or evacuating casualties. Female Marines were injured at more than six times the rate of men during preliminary training—unsurprising, since men’s higher testosterone levels produce stronger bones and muscles.

What History Can Teach
Democrats About Impeachment

Like Representative Rashida Tlaib, Bella Abzug was not one to mince words in the course of political combat. In 1973, as the murk of Watergate engulfed Richard Nixon, the feisty Democratic congresswoman from New York punched Speaker Carl Albert in the chest, in his account, and told him: “Get off your goddamned ass, and we can take this presidency!” As today, the Watergate era was a time of generational and stylistic change in the House of Representatives. Younger red-hot liberals saw impeachment as a necessary and urgent course of action, while wary elders viewed it

Austin man shot by Cheney

We have a couple of updates today. One about a movie. One about a museum. I told you recently that, based on his perusal of the script and glimpse at the trailer, local lawyer Harry Whittington had some concerns about “Vice,” the current unflattering movie about ex-Veep Dick Cheney. Whittington has some personal stake in the movie because he’s in the movie. He’s the local man who was shot by Cheney in a 2006 South Texas quail hunting accident. It’s a scene in the movie, and now that Whittington has seen the scene, he’s even more convinced it’s inaccurate.

Earl Scruggs revolutionized the way we play and appreciate the banjo today. Scruggs, who was born 95 years ago this month, developed his own three-finger method of picking the five-string banjo – an approach so radical it´s now widely referred to as "Scruggs style." That style, which features picks attached to the thumb, index finger and middle finger, has become a defining characteristic of bluegrass music and the most popular style of playing banjo in the genre. Google dedicated an animated Doodle to Scruggs on Friday, highlighting his finger-picking method, which helped elevate the status of the banjo

This weekend the federal shutdown becomes the longest in history—and yet, and yet, the sky has not fallen. Meet the team that has allowed the Trump White House to hold out for so long, and in the process forever altered future shutdown fights. Across the street from the Oval Office, an only somewhat merry band of budget lawyers labor on one priority: making this event as painless as possible. That was the order from President Trump when the government closed, and the Office of Management and Budget was ready. Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney

And while this year Gibbons unfurled a long solo on Nelson’s version of “Texas Flood,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says he’s generally just happy to have the best seat in the house to watch Willie play guitar. “I think he’s underrated as a soloist,” Gibbons

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown. Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens. (Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies.
