Undaunted by slow progress, I continue to empty my spindle (aka my email backlog)

I will never give up — or at least I won’t give up until I’m down to the last 30 emails.  Before I dive into that, though, I want to encourage any conservative woman to consider joining the National Federation of Republican Women.  You can find your local chapter here, and then connect with conservative women (and their husbands or other interested family members) in your community.

Funnily enough, when you think about it, conservatives used to be joiners.  They joined the Masons, and the Elks, and the Shriners, and the Kiwanis, and they were active in community politics.  When did conservatives get chased away from community political organizations?  Or is my view warped because I grew up in the Bay Area?  Please weigh in on this one.  I’m interested.

This is an old post from Doug Powers chastising Democrat media hack Joe Klein for insisting as late as the end of November that Benghazi was nothing more than a bad movie review run amok.  It makes for interesting reading in light of Hillary’s prevarications before the Senate today.  Here’s what Hillary knows:  It doesn’t matter what she knew or what she did regarding Benghazi. If she’s still the media’s darling in 2016, the subject will be buried so deep you can’t even smell it.  And if she’s not the media’s darling (as happened to her in 2008) nothing matters anyway, because they’ll work to elect her Democrat-rival.  In other words, there’s no downside to lying, bobbing, and weaving.

Going through my emails reminded my that, with the gun debate raging, I was terribly remiss not to direct you to Stately McDaniel Manor.  Its proprietor, Mike McDaniel, is a blogger who could readily enter any “most knowledgeable about guns” contest.  Add to that knowledge a lovely writing “voice,” a sharp and informed mind, and a stinging wit, and . . . well, I need to be beaten around the head for a while for hiding him from you.  However, on the principle that, when it comes to the important factual and ideological stuff, it’s never too late, I’d like to recommend his “A good day for children.

Speaking of my smart friends, have you bought your copy of Laer Pearce’s Crazifornia: Tales from the Tarnished State – How California is Destroying Itself and Why it Matters to America yet?  I know it’s about California, but with four more years of Obama to come, it’s also a good preview of coming attractions for the rest of America.  Would I sound hysterical if I said “be afraid; be very afraid”?

One can always tell when a society has gotten too successful:  non-procreational sexuality comes to the fore.  Because we are rich, we have the luxury of onanism (isn’t that a nice, old-fashioned world) and homosexuality, two practices that have no place in a society where the next generation must be born to keep the current generation from starving.  Which leaves one with a question:  when America collapses financially, and our reproductive rate is too low to replace the producers, will gay rights vanish?  Will gays vanish?  As to that second, I’d say that “practicing” gays will vanish.  There will be too much societal pressure (assuming some sort of coherent society) to allow for it.

Whew!  I’m down to 110 emails and still finding plenty of good stuff.  I’ve got to be a mom, though, so I’ll leave you with one picture, and continue this intellectual smorgasbord later today, or perhaps first thing tomorrow.

I got this from a friend who freely confesses that he doesn’t know where the data came from.  I don’t either.  But it sure looks good:

Death in America

    I guess I’ll use this as an open thread.  Hillary Clinton’s testimony has me all riled up again about Benghazi.
     
    In response to Senator Johnson questioning the motivation behind the assault in Benghazi, Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton had this to say:  “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”
     
    She went on to say that, oh, maybe sometime in the future, we’ll sort of run across whatever reasons these people had for doing whatever it was they did that resulted in four dead Americans.
     
    In the past, intelligent Americans, when they saw an assault by a trained group of men, carrying RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades) and using them in a coordinated attack during the assault, might have come to the conclusion that this was a coordinated, military-style assault.  Since it wasn’t carried out by a government, it would be considered a terrorist attack.  At no point was there a protest that “got out of hand”.
     
    But our esteemed Secretary of State listed, as her two choices for “what does it matter”:
    – a protest
    – guys out for a walk one night who decided to kill some Americans
     
    Guys out for a walk one night?  “Hey, dudes, let’s go kill us some Americans.  Um, we might want some RPGs, since we’re OUT FOR A WALK, just, you know, sort of out here walking around.  Maybe Jamaal’s got some RPGs, let’s go see if he does… since we’re just, you know, kind of out here WALKING AROUND.  Or something. I mean, like, dude.”
     
    If that’s the best she can come up with, she is not qualified to be Secretary Of State.  Nor Presidential candidate for 2016.  And they call Sarah Palin dumb?   My God!  You could review all of Sarah Palin’s comments and choose what you think was her worst moment, multiply it by 100, and you wouldn’t reach the heights of stupidity and banality that we just saw when these words issued forth from the Hillary Clinton mouth.

    All you need to know about guns is right here.  No way they can take them or make it to hard to have them.  BTW, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, the (formerly) the largest outdoor show in North America is collapsing as vendors and sponsors pull out after the exhibition company suddenly decided to ban the display and sell of the most popular rifle in America.

    Well said Mike Devx!

    Ace of Spades suspects that her whole response in those paragraphs was scripted, very carefully scripted.  He also suspected they poll-tested various responses and chose that one.
     
    Of course, they are all still doing everything they can to minimizeAmerican public awareness that this was, in fact, a terrorist assault.  Never mind that there appear to be strong connections between this Benghazi terrorist attack and the more recent Algerian oil refinery terrorist attack.  Why does the Obama Administration *need* so greatly to minimize the fact that Islamic terrorism is rampant across Africa?  It’s laughable.  I suspect they’ve miscalculated, and they’re shooting themselves in the foot, looking like Keystone Kops.  But we’ll see.

    They’re not shooting themselves in the foot. They are shooting Americans in the back.
