Ze are Mindless Nutjobs!

 

Educators in the Volunteer State are very concerned that students might be offended by the usage of traditional pronouns like she, he, him and hers, according to a document from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

A Division of The Ministry of Truth. Proud spewer of Doublespeak, Newspeak, and Doublethink gobbledygook.

They are very proud of their mindless zombie like adherence to Political Correctness.

They want to assimilate you. Resistance is Futile.

“With the new semester beginning and an influx of new students on campus, it is important to participate in making our campus welcoming and inclusive for all,” wrote Donna Braquet in a posting on the university’s website. “One way to do that is to use a student’s chosen name and their correct pronouns.”

How about including people who have a brain that functions? Nope, didn’t think so.

The exclusivity of “inclusiveness”.

Braquet, who is director of the university’s Pride Center, suggested using a variety of gender neutral pronouns instead of traditional pronouns.

“There are dozens of gender-neutral pronouns,” she declared.

For all you folks who went to school back when there were only him and her – here’s a primer: some of the new gender neutral pronouns are ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr.

“These may sound a little funny at first, but only because they are new,” Braquet explained. “The ‘she’ and ‘he’ pronouns would sound strange too if we had been taught ‘ze’ when growing up.”

Orwell, is very proud of you, you are a great example for all to see.

Somehow I sincerely doubt that, but whatever. Anything goes for the sake of inclusivity, right?

For all you folks who went to school back when there were only him and her – here’s a primer: some of the new gender neutral pronouns are ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr.

There will be a Politically Correct test later. You will have to pass it or be re-educated by the Ministry of Truth.

Resistance is Futile.

“Instead of calling roll, ask everyone to provide their name and pronouns,” she wrote. “This ensures you are not singling out transgender or non-binary students.”

For example, the birth certificate might say that Big Earl is a male. But what if Big Earl identifies as a lady who wants to be called Lawanda?

According to the procedures outlined by the folks at the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the professor is obligated to call Big Earl – Lawanda – or whatever name makes Big Earl feel more included.

How about “pain the ass narcissist”?? Sorry, was that not inclusive enough? 🙂

“We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems,” Braquet wrote. “Transgender people and people who do not identify within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.”

Has your brain melted yet?

It’s all so confusing, right? So thankfully, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion has devised a way to prevent students and professors from calling “sir” a “ma’am.”

“You can always politely ask,” she wrote. “’Oh, nice to meet you (insert name). What pronouns should I use?’ is a perfectly fine question to ask.”

BARF! Seriously? Of course they are serious…The Ministry has no sense of humor and neither do the Politically Correct.

Let’s just say that not everyone is on board with the new gender neutral pronouns. Lots of folks in Big Orange Country are turning blood red.

“It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” Republican State Sen. Mae Beavers told me. “If you must interview a student before you greet the student, that’s not acceptance – that’s just absurd.”

Bigot! 🙂

Beavers represents a “very conservative” district and she said her constituents are enraged over how their tax money is being spent by the university.

Should that be Diversity instead of University? 🙂

“The idea a child would want to be called by a gender neutral term is absolutely ridiculous,” she said. “It’s getting so crazy in this country.”

Julie West has two children at the university – not to mention a family dog named after the Volunteer’s revered coach – General Neyland.

“This isn’t inclusion,” she said. “This is the radical transformation of our lives and language.”

Yes, it is. That’s what Political Correctness is all about. The control of language, thus the control of thought.

I reached out to the vice chancellor for tolerance and diversity (yes they really do have such a thing) – but I’m still waiting for him or her or ze or xyr to call me back.

Has hell frozen over yet? The Vice Minister of Truth does not talk to the unpeople.

There you have it, folks. His and Hers is no longer good enough at the University of Tennessee – where they are willing to sacrifice anything for the sake of gender inclusivity – including common sense.

I wonder if they’ve got a gender neutral word for idiot?

Yeah, “Liberal” “politically correct”, take your pick!

Addressing His Ego

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

America is on “a never-ending journey,” President Obama declared, using a metaphor that makes sense for the biggest-spending chief executive in the history of mankind; never-ending journeys never run into a Day of Reckoning.

According to this president, “being true to our founding documents … does not mean we all define liberty in exactly the same way.” Liberty, we are to believe, is an eye-of-the-beholder proposition.

This is what we are to have in mind as we swallow the “ask not what your country” line of Obama’s address: “preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action.”

In other words, there is no real liberty without big government. Or perhaps we should turn to Orwell’s 1984 to break the code: “Freedom Is Slavery.” (IBD)

Fear is Hope.
Ignorance is Strength.
Reagan once said that Government WAS the problem.
Obama says Government IS the Solution.
Obama: “we reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.”Translation: We can have our fiscal cake and eat it too. Forget $16.5 trillion in national debt. Forget trillion-dollar deficits. Forget government hyper-spending’s toll on the private sector.

The executive branch has no intention over the next four years of reforming — or, more correctly, saving from bankruptcy — our wasteful entitlement programs. Indeed, ObamaCare is a huge new entitlement heaved on to the taxpayers’ backs.

Lady Thatcher warned that socialists “always run out of other people’s money.” The president has made it clear he is nowhere near to being finished pursuing collectivism in the name of individual freedom. (IBD)

You know the saying that if you us “But” that negates everything you said prior and tells us what you really thought:
“But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action.”
No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation and one people.

YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT 🙂 And only we, the Government can collectively and only we in the government c an protect you from it.

Ah, now talk about codewords. Collective. Collectivism. Bye-bye individual initiative. Hello, collective action, collective groups, collective farms, collective benefits. Wealth redistribution. Confiscating firearms for the group’s own safety. Whatever your most-feared collective demon, you can read that into Obama’s “collective action.” 

Those two words — “collective action” — did not appear there by accident. These speeches are written over many weeks and re-shaped countless times by way too many cooks.

But before any minutemen reach for their trusty musket, we should all remember Obama’s record on doing what he says he’s going to do. It’s beneath pathetic.

Go through the budget cutting line-by-line. Close Guantanamo. Try terrorists in New York. Lower healthcare costs through ObamaCare. Ban lobbyists from his White House. Run the most open government ever. Hold healthcare hearings in public. Really get down to work this time building new jobs. Protect the middle-class from tax hikes that hit their paychecks this month. Create hundreds of thousands of new jobs in a few months with “shovel-ready” projects. Yada-yada.

Speaking of collective, did anyone else notice that Obama, who usually loves the word “I,” instead used the royal word “We” 85 times?

He mentioned “God” five times, “journey” and “war” six times each and “equal” seven times. “Change,” “values” and “jobs” each got three mentions, “deficit” and “middle class” once apiece. “Gay” got a nod, as in: “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.”

The returned president did not once say the words: “taxes,” “balance,” “budget,” “Afghanistan,” “victory,” “guns,” “violence,” “Hollywood,” “family,” “church” or “big !#%+=&* deal.”

But Obama did indulge himself in the time-dishonored political gimmick of holding out the impossible prospect of guaranteed social safety for all, as if even his bloated, deficit-addicted federal government could produce such an idyllic place free of tragedy.

“Our journey is not complete,” Obama declared, “until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm.”

Life is fair and equal and safe.

And it’s the Republicans/Rich/Capitalists fault if it’s not.

And the Republicans are too weak to stand up for Reagan and Conservatives.

So, Comrade, enjoy your Collective “fairness”.

But the guy’s got 1,458 days left in office. As he told the Russians last spring, he need never face voters again. But Obama just cannot ever extricate himself from campaign mode.

“For we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class.  (the problem is that his policies are sinking the middle class as we speak but he can’t see the truth through the lofty rhetoric because it sounds better- The road to hell and all that…)We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work (but your boss is an evil capitalist pig out to destroy you!); when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship (“fairness”!). We are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else, because she is an American; she is free (as long as you do what I say), and she is equal (as I define it) , not just in the eyes of God but also in our own. “
“We do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few.  We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us at any time may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other through Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great. “
He obvious has no clue how anything works in reality. But in his head it works just fine.

And Only a Big Government bureaucracy can insure all this. Individual grit and determination just can’t. Life must be made “fair” and only government can do that.
A Big Bloated, over spending behemoth that will crush your children after I am gone!
That will be Someone Elses Problem. 🙂
It won’t be his fault because he had the most noble of intentions. It was dirty rotten bastards who opposed him that screw it up.
Meanwhile, the addicts get more addiction not intervention.
We are all one big happy dysfunctional family and you can’t pick your family so we just have to all get along.
OR ELSE BIG BROTHER will settle it for you.
Because that’s what a Big Brother is for…
And Big Sis is also back for another go at it.
So you better behave or Santa Claus will be very cross with you and put you on his Naughty List and you don’t want to be on his Naughty List…

The Day That Will Live In Infamy

No the Japanese have not attacked Pearl Harbor again.

And this was not a sneak attack.

But it was a call to War.

As predicted, the Democrat Socialists sold the American People down the toilet  219-212. That 3 more than they needed.

And guess who caved at the last second, Pro-Life Democrats.

They were promised to issue an executive order (aka BRIBE) from the President saying that the provisions of the now Health Care Reform Law that let the government pay fro abortions will not happen.

Not an actual signed order, just a promise of one.

And this President is a very trustworthy guy. 😦

SUCKER!

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) the “leader” of the now defunct ‘pro-life’ Democrats is now Judas.

“Perhaps Mr. Stupak and his fellow pro-life Democrats forget that President Obama’s first Executive Order was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy to allow for international funding of abortion.”— Phylis Schlafly of the Eagle Forum

To pay for the changes, the legislation includes more than $400 billion in higher taxes over a decade and cuts more than $500 billion from planned payments to hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and other providers that treat Medicare patients. (AP)

So bend over and reach deep. The enema you’re going to get is going to be a joyous one, Comrade. 😦

And just to give you some more happy news: This from Bloomberg

President Obama’s budget proposal would create bigger deficits every year of the next decade, with the gaps totaling $1.2 trillion more than his administration projects, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said this month. Publicly held debt will zoom to $20.3 trillion, or 90 percent of gross domestic product, by 2020, the CBO forecast.

So anyone for Ramen Noodles??

That maybe all we have left soon.

But at least we’ll have government Health Care!

Hurray! 😦

When asked what Obama was doing during the vote, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs: “Mostly basketball.” (CBS)

He was watching the NCAA.

Well, you have to have your priorities… 😦

It also seems, according to the Senate Republicans website that the Senate Democrats stalled a “bi-partisan” meeting with the Parliamentarian until after the vote, that way it didn’t stall their quest for the Holy Grail.

WASHINGTON DC – Senate Democrats have balked at a bi-partisan meeting with the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss a rule violation that could doom the entire House reconciliation proposal.

DON STEWART, McCONNELL SPOKESMAN: “Republicans have been trying to set up a meeting with Senate Democrats since yesterday to discuss this fatal point of order but have been met with nothing but silence. We suspect Democrats are slow walking us so as to have the House vote first. Since Senate Democrats refuse to meet with us and the Parliamentarian, we’ve informed our colleagues in the House that we believe the bill they’re now considering violates the clear language of Section 310g of the Congressional Budget Act, and the entire reconciliation bill is subject to a point of order and rejection in the Senate should it pass the House.”

That means the Senate bill, which everyone in the House seems to universally hate, will be the law of the land.

And the Partisan bloodbath is probably not over.

But remember, this was the President who was going to be the Post-Partisan, Unifier.

You just did know he was going to be Unified against The American People and any who opposed his will.

Details…Details…details….

So the Reconciliation Fix-it fight is now on.

“Immediately after receiving the final reconciliation bill language, Senate Republican staff was ready and willing to meet with Senate Democratic staff and the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss the fact that the House reconciliation bill may be brought down by the 310(g) point of order in the Senate. Senate Democrats are mysteriously unavailable until after the House votes on the health care bill tonight. The Senate Democrats appear to be pushing off this meeting so that House Democrats will remain in the dark about what is likely to happen to the reconciliation bill on which many have staked their careers in Congress. House Democrats should be alarmed by this latest development, since the survival of the reconciliation bill is clearly at risk in the Senate.”

If Republicans can get the parliamentarian to agree with them even once, whatever ultimately passes the Senate will have to go back to the House.
And Democrats in the House quietly admit that its very likely they will have to vote again on the reconciliation fixes at some point down the road.

So the House Democratic Leadership was potentially Lying to it’s members, especially ‘Judas’ Stupak, that they’re being played.

Admittedly, you have to get the Parliamentarian to agree first, but it show how far the Democrats will go to pass it.

But even then, we still have Government run Health Care.

It doesn’t do it to everyone just yet.

But by the end of the decade it will be.

You can trust the Democrats on that.

or Maybe sooner…

As you know, I am a strong supporter of a public option, and I included the HELP Committee’s public option in the bill I brought to the senate floor last year. I was disappointed when it became clear that we did not have the votes to keep it.
Nevertheless, like you, I remain committed to pursuing the public option. While I believe that the legislation we are considering does much to provide affordable coverage to millions of Americans and curb insurance company abuses, I also believe that the public option would provide additional competition to make insurance even more affordable. As we have discussed, I will work to ensure that we are able to vote on the public option in the coming months.
Sen Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Because we all know by now, you can trust a Democrat lawmaker to keep his or her word, now can’t we. 🙂

And we have to get the Illegals Amnesty so they can be put on the government doles and registered as Democrats so we can fix the messy democratic process.

And then we just need to fix all those greedy, consumer-driven, energy pigs and purveyors of evil CO2 (you know, electricity, oil, cars, people).

We’ll whip them into shape for their own good.

So Welcome to the new Obama’s Amerika, Comrade.

Enjoy your “freedoms”.
