    At least we won’t have to defend the Left’s propaganda attacks against Republicans or the GOP. They spent quite a long time using propaganda to brainwash people into hating Bush and Republicans over the Iraq War.
     
    But as a consequence, they have made their zombies vulnerable for a counter strike. One that’ll hurt a lot, if not necessarily fatal.

    Why the Progs fear the polar vortex
     
    About this time  of year in 1777, just before the Battle of Princeton, there was a similar sequence.  On January 2, Cornwallis’s men marched south from New York City through cold rain and muddy roads to try to trap George Washington and his little Continental Army in Trenton . On the night of January 2-3, a polar vortex swept across New Jersey,  with snow and a very hard freeze. Aided by the extremely cold weather, Washington was able to evacuate his troops and artillery over newly frozen roads  and to avoid Cornwallis’s encirclement.  Reaching Princeton on the viciously cold morning of January 3,  Washington won another battle against the British and escaped to winter quarters in Morristown. Thank you polar vortex!”

    Hey, who wants to be horrified.  This post goes well beyond the Ford disclosure to the likelihood of tort law forcing more surveillance since it is now so cheap.

    Heck, JKB, the way things are going, why don’t we just inject a GPS chip in our little babies when they are born?  A pretty pink one for the gals, a blue one for the bouncing baby boys.  
    The IPhone App would be awesome.  Part of the new pickup routine at bars:  “Hey, baby, let’s bump our IPhones and share GPS.  We’ll be able to know EXACTLY where each of us, within three meters, for the rest of our lives.”
     
    Tea Partiers are terrorists?  Want to know who attended the Tea Party meeting at 4314 McGinny Ave at 8 pm on Oct 14th, 2015?  Just check the GPS transmissions, which occur every 30 seconds, and are safely housed by the NSA in one of its *smaller* databases tracking human activity.  All in the name of preventing terrorism, and keeping Americans safe.

      If the Left has someone that thinks like me in charge of operations, they’ll drop a napalm bomb on that meeting by “accident”. The way China’s embassy was “accidentally” bombed.
