The Republican Party: A Glimmer Of Hope

There are, gentle readers, two videos you must see. For those that don’t know him, Elbert Guillory is a Louisiana state senator who committed apostasy. He switched political parties from Democrat to Republican. When he did, he recorded a significant video explaining his reasons.

Oh yes: Guillory is black. As you might imagine, Guillory has been pilloried for his supposed betrayal of progressive ideology. SMM readers, of course, know that the Republican party, for all of its current faults–and they are legion–was the party that worked to abolish slavery, while Democrats–well into the 1970s–worked to deny civil rights to blacks. Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president. Democrats worked assiduously to disarm blacks, the better to control and suppress them. Every Democrat social program, including Head Start, has been a spectacular failure and have actively contributed to the destruction of black families and the current plight of black culture.

Guillory has also produced a brilliant video explaining to Louisana voters why they should vote against Senator Mary Landrieu. My friend and fellow blogger Bookworm has both videos.  You owe it to yourself to visit her article and see them. It will renew your faith in humanity, and perhaps kindle at least a bit of hope that the Republican party is not entirely populated with self-serving twits and whiners.

Do you ever feel “the dint of pity,” as Mark Antony said in Julius Caesar, for losing football teams? Do you root for the little guy, or the little girl, in this particular instance?

If so, you might want to take a few minutes and visit my latest article at The Truth About Guns, which the good folks there have been kind enough to publish. It’s titled “The Metaphors of Sports And Liberty.”

It might be worth your time.

More frequently than frugal Americans prefer, a new federal government research boondoggle is exposed. The feds spend a million dollars on a study of the flatulence of lesbian Holsteins, or 1.5 million of why back scratchers feel so good. Now it’s time for one of the best–worst–in a long time. Your federal government, loyal Americans, has spent $300,000 dollars on the “deeper questions” about how people ride bicycles. The freebeacon.com has the story:

I’ve previously written about Shaneen Allen, the Pennsylvania single mother of two young boys arrested for carrying her handgun–lawfully carried in Pennsylvania–in the People’s Republic of New Jersey. Those articles: “Shaneen Allen: The Cruelty of New Jersey Authorities,” “Shaneen Allen At Bearing Arms,”  “Shaneen Allen: An Update” and “Shaneen Allen: A Real Race Card,” explain how the Atlantic City Prosecutor refused to allow Allen to participate in a pre-trial diversion program that would keep a felony conviction off her previously clean record.

Those articles–I hope this scruffy little blog had some small hand in shaming the previously shameless–and substantial public outcry on the Internet and around the nation, have finally turned the tide, as often happens in such cases, that Allen will now be treated as any other law abiding person who made the mistake of thinking the Constitution actually applies in New Jersey. Philly.com has the story.

Why Not Rape Children? Justice At Last.

Stacey Rambold (L) and his Attorney

Stacey Rambold (L) and his Attorney

On September 02, 2013 I reported on the case of 49 year-old Montana teacher Stacey Dean Rambold, who had an ongoing sexual relationship with a 14 year-old student, Cherice Moralez. The article “Why Not Rape Children? They Can Consent,” revealed that just short of her 17th birthday, Moralez killed herself. It also took to task apologists for child rape and the judge in the case, G. Todd Baugh, who not only blamed Moralez for her rape, but gave Rambold an obscenely lenient sentence.

As I noted in “Why Not Rape Children? Update 2” on May 1, 2014, Judge Baugh ended up furiously backpedaling and apologizing, and the Montana Supreme Court ordered a new sentencing for Rambold. That sentence has finally been handed down. The missoulian.com has the story:

Education Problems And Solutions, #5: The Higher Education Bubble (and the Soap Scum It Leaves Behind) UPDATED

Life sometimes dissolves into farce, and that is nowhere so evident than in the world of Higher Education. I graduated from college in 1986. By then, I had military service and nearly a decade of police work under my belt and was in my 30s. By taking overloads every semester and every summer and interim session possible, I finished in 2.5 years. Because I attended a small Midwestern school focused on training excellent teachers, I managed to avoid much–not all–of the politically correct lunacy that currently infects our campuses.

Consider that many of our colleges and universities are now bogged down in a particularly fetid fever swamp of their own making. Apparently, at least 25% of the women that attend college can expect to be raped. They can probably even make reservations. And young men attending college are all presumed to be rapists, presumed guilty until they are inevitably found guilty by women’s studies tribunals. Yet the federal government wants everyone to incur enormous and crippling debt to attend college so they can be raped or thrown out of college as rapists. Who could resist that siren song? It’s a progressive, politically correct utopia! Continue reading
