The 1958 Lituya Bay tsunami reached a height of 1,720 feet before it smashed the Alaskan coast. Blame global warming. Just kidding. That was sarcasm.
AR 15s or How To Panic Soccer Moms — Now and then one finds oneself in a waiting room trapped with Today or Strahan, Sara & Keke or The Ellen DeGeneres Show and it dawns that there are people who actually watch this stuff regularly.
And it dawns that these are largely stay-at-home moms and that these shows are their source of information about politics and the world at large.
The realization then comes that this is why this demographic is voting for people who advocate policies that strip their freedoms and decrease their prosperity.
Ours too unfortunately.
So how do we convince these moms that they are being programmed, propagandized and otherwise lied to?
How do we make these moms understand that if they continue to vote the way the do they will have 1980s-level crime rates, permanent debt, children educated to be weak and submissive to authority and fashion, deliberate blackouts and general misery?
Let’s start with guns. Click on the above link regarding crime rates. Notice how the murders and meanness started dropping in the late 1990s? That’s when restrictions on the possession and use of firearms started being removed.
It’s not a coincidence.
But, but, but what about those scary AR 15s? It is estimated that there are between 8.5 million and 15 million semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines in private hands in the United States. These are mostly AR 15 and AK 47 style weapons.
In 2018, there were 297 murders committed with rifles, which would also include things like lever-action Winchesters and bolt-action .22s.
Even if all the rifles were AR 15s and AK 47s that would mean only .0003 percent of this type of weapon were used to commit a murder. You’d be more in danger going out for a boat ride as about 330 people drown annually in boating accidents according to the CDC.
Please understand you watchers of daytime propaganda that people who support gun rights are not bad people . They want peace and friendly neighbors and happy children just like you.
People who oppose political correctness are not racists, either. They are actually the opposite. People who support school choice are not anti-education.
“Conservatives” are not bad people. People who lie to you and manipulate you for their ends sorta are, though.
Try to understand why “conservatives” think as they do. More importantly try to understand why you think as you do.
AR 15s or How To Panic Soccer Moms
Megan King Leading For 2nd Superior Court Seat— It was mostly not a good night for Pennsylvania Republicans as they were swept in former GOP strongholds in Chester and Delaware counties, and obviously Montgomery County. One of the more troubling losses was the Delaware County District Attorney’s race were Kat Copeland fell to George Soros minion Jack Stollsteimer, 83,718 to 78,843 (unofficial totals).
Joe Gale’s bullet-voting scheme appears to have worked in Montco as he kept his minority county commissioner seat getting (unofficially) 73,106 votes to fellow Republican Fred Conner’s 67,349.
Joe has been a very fine minority county commissioner doing everything one would expect a minority county commissioner to do which is basically nothing.
And now he can do nothing again for four more years.
It would have been better for all, including himself, if he had used some of his apparently large advertising budget to put Ken Lawrence in the crosshairs rather than shoot it all at Conner.
Lawrence ended up, unofficially, with 122,492 votes. Top vote-getter in the commissioner race was Val Arkoosh at 125,262.
Megan King is a Republican bright spot as she is leading for the second contested seat on state Superior Court. The Pennsylvania Department of State’s website has been stuck at “8,799 Out of 9,159 Districts (96.07%) Reporting” since about 2 a.m. The non-reporting districts include 94 in Philadelphia, 26 in York County and all 155 districts in Northhampton County. Mrs. King’s tally stands at 1,202,198. Democrat Daniel McCaffery is leading with 1,210,242 votes. In third place is Democrat Amanda Green-Hawkins with 1,173,899 votes. In fourth place is Republican Christylee Peck with 1,119,731 votes.
Mrs. King’s husband, Richard, says it may be a “day or two” before they know for sure.
Two seats with 10-year terms were up for election on the court which is the intermediate appellate court for most matters in the state.
Oh, and the insidious Marcy’s Law amendment to the state constitution would have passed easily — it was ahead 1,599,565 to 567,117 as of our last check — but the state Supreme Court has fortunately ruled the votes would not be counted.
