Have you ever noticed how if you are asexual pan-sexual, transgender, bi, gay, or however the hell your mind works, that you are widely accepted for being different; But when you say you are a conservative and have different beliefs from others, you are shunned/shamed, for being different?
I have indeed noticed this phenomenon on tumblr, but in my experience the real world is a little different.
At a time when Israel’s Prime Minister Netenyahui was loudly warning the world that Iran was on the verge of making a nuclear bomb he was apparently being told by his own secret service this wasn’t true. Leaked Israeli intelligence documents stated that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons”. Israel, by contrast, actually has an existing arsenal of ‘secret’ nuclear weapons which it won’t allow the UN to inspect .. (story here) .. (and here)
"Netanyahu’s speech was necessary. It was masterful. It was cogent. It was honest. It was inspiring. And the Democrats in response, including the President, acted like snitty, bitchy high school girls."
The head of each Federal agency shall make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the Government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities.
So, in other words, all heads of federal agencies must use an official government email account to keep track of records (although they seem to be very susceptible to hard drive crashes) and Hillary instead decided to conduct all her email correspondence through her own private email address at clintonemail.com…most likely so she could also keep track of all Bill’s lewd messages too.
She may also may have violated the Freedom of Information Act by not turning over her private email address when requested. Don’t worry though, Trey Gowdy is going to use this against her regarding investigation into Benghazi next.
It’s not that the wage gap scares me, it’s that the wage gap is a hackneyed old myth designed to keep women politically dependent on the left. When you adjust for age, type of job, qualifications, hours worked, etc., the difference in earnings all but vanishes. It’s my opinion that repeatedly telling women they are victims of this mythical form of sexism is a harmful distraction from real problems in our world.
A Republican Oklahoma legislative committee has overwhelmingly voted to ban Advanced Placement U.S. History class because, they say, it only teaches students 'what is bad about America' and fails to instil a belief in ‘American Exceptionalism’. Similar attempts to ensure history is taught as propaganda with a right-wing bias are going on in other Republican-controlled states .. (story here)
It also points out just how ridiculous the ATF’s notion that they want to ban M855 ammo out of handguns because it’s “armor piercing” when a standard M193 ball round is “armor piercing.” Pretty much any type of bullet you can fire out of a handgun that goes 2,000 ft per second or faster regardless of the caliber is going to make it through body armor. And regardless of the bullet design.
It’s just asinine that they’re trying to ban the M855 and just seems like a political play. They’re just making it harder on gun owners for no reason.
