feckless: not giving a feck

What Obama said and did:

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’

Less than 10 minutes after leaving the podium Obama teed-off and was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour game Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha’s Vineyard – his seventh round in ten days.

As you would expect, the responses were pretty much brutal.

Well, most, but not all …

The New York Times had digital egg on its face for hours while Obama golfed, publishing a story about his early afternoon speech headlined: ‘Obama Outraged Over Beheading, Vows to Stay on Course.

Can’t make this stuff up, folks.

What Obama should have said and done (BTF): »
I would remind ISIS that we hold Islamist prisoners. I have issued orders that, should another American be decapitated, we will decapitate an Islamist prisoner. Should ISIS continue to slaughter civilians, we will repatriate more Gitmo prisoners, one piece at a time. Any Islamists or supporters captured while trying to enter or found within the US illegally will be considered enemy spies, fed bacon, and shot. Those here legally will get a trial. Don’t push us to the point where we take no more prisoners. Thatisall.

Being ‘War-Weary’

The whole, you know, shower thing

We’ll start with Nick Offerman’s Shower Thoughts, because … Offerman.
(What? Have you even looked at my avatar?)

Perhaps you have your own Shower Thoughts to contribute.

Next, we’ll explore one Muslim cleric’s, uhm, view of showers.
(What? Wellp, I suppose it’ll make their video dating experience a whole lot more fun unnecessary.)

Shower fans might also like: Psycho, Starship Troopers (NSFW), Weird Science, and of course Bugs Bunny. (Murder, underage exhibitionism, and zoophilial voyeurism are okay; but bare bouncy lady bits are NSFW.)

there’s a word for this

… “When people get to a point, [unintelligible] that tipping point, they can’t take it anymore. And I’m not saying that people should burn down stuff, riot, and loot. And I don’t even want to use the work ‘riot.’ I’m gonna use the word ‘uprising.’ But this is not the first time we’ve seen this. And I just hope that things will really blow up if the people aren’t happy with the verdict of this upcoming trial.”…

unclear on The Narrative™

Pseudo-intellectual Progs never think far enough ahead to understand what will happen when
their Utopian and revolutionary irrationalities collide with either reality or themselves,
since reason itself is heretical and can be ignored for the greater good


Hard-core Leftists do, but they believe that it won’t matter in the end,
since a new reality begins when they assume power;
and the heretics will be dealt with

The Terror™ … The Terror™

I was reading about another in a long list of ongoing atrocities visited by the Islamic State upon innocents,
and I was disturbed by my lack of shock.
Sure, I was appalled and outraged; but I was not shocked — it was somehow familiar:
the beheadings, the de-Christianization, the terror in pursuit of political virtue.

Then I remembered: revolutionary France and The Terror™.

What’s so familiar is the political calculation behind the power of utter ruthlessness, even in civilized societies.

Horror and moral terror are your friends (BTF): »

Document 9 from Outer Space

Those commie bastards !

An op-ed posted in China’s Communist Party news outlet lambasted “elitist” dog ownership, comparing canine defecation to “land mines” and calling dogs a stain on “social peace and harmony.”

The author described the glory days of “Mao’s cultural revolution,” in which upwards of 50 million died in an effort to create the perfect utopian Communist society. “Dog ownership was condemned as elitist” during Mao’s reign, he said, calling the activity a “crude and ludicrous imitation… of a Western lifestyle.”

The Communist party op-ed says that while Western folks describe dogs as “man’s best friend,” they should more accurately be placed into three categories: “watchdogs… hunting dogs – along with those to be eaten.”

A leaked paper known as Document 9 showcased Chinese officials’ concerns with how they have had to crack down on not just dog ownership, but also other foreign Western ideals such as “individual rights” and the dangers of the “free flow of information on the internet.” [story]

This, brothers and sisters, is one of the finest fire & brimstone sermons I have ever heard.

Confusing global warming with a world on fire

Progressives believe in state management of society for the greater good by elite, enlightened policymakers and administrators unencumbered by the inconvenient burdens of reality or history.
You know … children.*

The global impact of climate change is “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Hawaii Wednesday ….” “The science is screaming at us,” he said. “Ask any kid in school. They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect. They get it.” [more]

We’re in the best of hands, boys and girls, the best of hands.
