The Death Of The Apology

“Would ‘sorry’ have made any difference? Does it ever? It’s just a word. One word against a thousand actions.”
― Sarah Ockler

“Sorry, always sorry. What in the world can you buy with an apology?”
― Marie Lu

“Never apologize, mister, it’s a sign of weakness.”
― John Wayne

I just finished reading an article on National Review entitled, The Humiliating Art of The Woke Apology. In the article, it alludes to the fact that a person who offended some group, institution or person got caught saying something let’s say 25 years ago would have been nothing. The author, Rich Lowry, shows us how the woke apology has evolved over time, becoming what it is now, which is nothing more than an embarrassing slew of words thrown together to appease someone, somewhere who thought who thought that they were being offended.

An excellent example from the article follows:

“A routine feature of over-the-top apologies is the vast gap between the alleged offense and the depths of the confessions of wrongdoing. The tone and content of many contemporary apologies might be appropriate if, say, Aaron Burr were expressing regret for shooting Alexander Hamilton, or if Andrew Jackson were coming to terms with the enormity of the Trail of Tears.”

In reading many of the offenses first, and then the response from the person who said it, I am often struck by the totality of the apology. You would think that the person was apologizing for a life consumed by actual hate crimes instead of refusing to use the proper pronoun when speaking about the freaks in the transgender world.

I believe that this type of thinking needs to stop. We supposedly live in a country where our freedoms are God given rights. More recently. The SJW’s and PC police have made it their business to shut anyone up who doesn’t agree with them. In the movie The Judge, the characters played by Robert Downey jr. and Robert Duvall get into an argument while driving back from the courthouse. The Judge insists that another son stop the car so he can get out.  Before Downey jr. exits the vehicle, he makes a statement to the effect that he wishes the Judge had died and not his mother. A short scuffle ensues and Downey jr. says to the two brothers in the front seats of the car, “What line were you two in when they were giving out testicles?” The third brother, who is slightly mentally challenged, then looks at the driver and very sincerely asks him, “What line were we in when they were giving out testicles?”

My point here is that both men and women need to grow a set. Everyone is so afraid of how these mindless cretins will respond that they immediately kowtow to the crazies and issue the most absurd apologies. Now I fully understand that these people often fear for their jobs, but by the point that they apologize, the job they had is already history. Then they are blacklisted. For people in many fields, it is then very difficult to find a new job.

I am at a point in my life where I am happily retired and refuse to play this stupid game of words. If I don’t agree with something, that is my God given right to do so. As long as I don’t hurt anyone, I can say and think what I want. The left needs to get it through their heads that just because I disagree with you does not make me white supremacist etc. It simply means I disagree with you.

Needless to say, you will never, ever hear or read any type of apology from me, unless, of course, it is mixed with a nice dose of sarcasm. For example, over the course of my years working in the Ossining UFSD, I had to deal with transgender kids. Most of them had underlying mental health issues and they all believed that everyone had to play along, or they would tell their guidance counselor, a building administrator or central administrator. Unfortunately, to get where I am today, I also had to play the game. Now I don’t have to play along. I can call it what it is.

So this is where we are. The death of the true apology. Anyone can utter some words or put out a statement, but what do those words mean? They truly mean nothing.

And this is how I will continue to operate. So please, spare me the histrionics of saying that I have to apologize, or that I am something evil if I don’t agree with you. I have been told that I should apologize for some of my posts. My reply to that is twofold: Screw off, and if you are truly waiting for an apology, you will be waiting a very, very long time.

Nancy Hops On The Hypocrite Train Again…

Nancy Pelosi has a very difficult time separating fact from fantasy and the hypocrisy that she continues to vomit on the poor souls of America is beyond comprehension. After the capitol riot on 1/6 she implemented procedures where every lawmaker would have to pass through a metal detector to keep everyone safe (from all of those monstrous Republicans).

As a result, she docked $5,000 from both Reps. Louie Gohmert and Andrew Clyde’s pay for defying the new procedures, according to a senior Democratic aide.

Obviously anything you can do to protect people is a good thing, just don’t ruin it by playing politics.

In a statement, she said that “Many House Republicans began disrespecting our heroes by refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our congressional community safe — including by dodging metal detectors, physically pushing past police, and even attempting to bring firearms into the chamber.” 

Now, this all seems like a good idea on the surface, but the fact that she says that Republicans are “disrespecting our heroes” by refusing to comply with her new procedures is the height of hypocrisy. She has spent almost a year ignoring how her side of the aisle has disrespected police officers across the nation. They have been spit on, had urine and feces thrown on them, had objects thrown at them and fireworks shot at them. What has Nancy had to say about this? Nothing.

I am not saying that the folks who protect the capitol do not deserve the same amount of respect because they do, but once again she conveniently forgets the thousands of police who have been subjected to this vile type of behavior, sometimes on a daily basis. She forgets the hundreds of riots where police officers have been injured, insulted, and disrespected by the domestic terrorists from ANTIFA and BLM.

Her behavior, unfortunately, is to be expected. She has once again has proven that she has no insight as to her own behavior and that by ignoring the lefts own incredibly inappropriate behavior, it shows that she is the worst kind of hypocrite.

I hope that these gentlemen refuse to pay the fine but in all honesty, they do need to follow the rules…

Transgender? I Don’t Think So…

Put any label that you want on me, but this idea of being “transgender” is nonsense. There you go I said it. It is 100% Bovine Scatology. Does anyone else find it strange that all of a sudden, over the last 10-15 years, the number of these kids has skyrocketed? I can tell you with relative certainty that just about every trans kid that I dealt with over the years that proclaimed they were another gender had one or several underlying mental health issues. Hmmm…that tells me a great deal.

Now that Biden will take over the Oval Office in just over a month, he has pledged to return the country to what he and Obama had in place during that failed administration. In other words, boys who just “identify” as girls will be able to use the same bathrooms and participate in girls sports. Connecticut has already seen problems with this as two boys won several track events at the state meet in 2019. Girls that had been training for years were denied wins because what was pretty much a man, couldn’t hack it with the boys so they pull the “I’m a girl” nonsense.

Slow Joe’s website says the following:

“On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity. He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights,” 

In a press conference that Crazy Nancy recently had she totally agreed with Biden and his truly disgusting plan to once again allow boys and men into female locker rooms and sports. When asked by a reporter if she agreed with Slow Joe’s plan and whether he could actually make the changes, she replied, “yes, and I think he does.”

I do have some personal experience with this insanity, and it was not good. When my daughter played hockey her last couple of years, she was on a U19 girls team. We had one team that we played several times that had a boy, who after watching him play, would not have gone that far on a boys team but did relatively well with the girls. My daughter, who is 5’ 4” and goes about 110 pounds was no match for this “girl” who was probably around 5’ 9” and weighed in at about 175-180 and he was 18 years old. Please remember that I was 18 when I became a United States Marine.

If he wasn’t on that team, around 80% of the goals scored wouldn’t have been because he was much stronger and faster than most of the girls. Coincidentally he also acted as the teams unofficial enforcer. Several of our young ladies were injured over the two years and multiple times that they played them.

Now couple this with the “girls” in Connecticut that won state championships in track. Where is the fairness for real girls? Girls without a penis and testosterone at the level of an 18 year old man.

It is shameful that it has come this. Ladies and gentleman, we have two sexes, male and female. If you have a penis, you are a male. If you are a female then you have a vagina. End of story. All of this other crap is just that, crap. Gender is not fluid nor can it be changed.

Transgender people, who make up a very small minority of the population act as though they are in the majority. They are not. They push people around and bully them. They threaten to cancel everyone doesn’t believe their fairy tale of the month.

What they are doing, however, is robbing real girls and women of the success that they deserve not only in high school sports, but sports overall. Think about it, you know you are a male and you “identify” as a girl. You then win every race that you run in because, as a male, you are stronger and faster than most of your female competitors. What about the rights of the real females? Why are they cast to the side to appease the few?

All in all, these are biological facts. Not flights of whimsy brought on by a you tube video, after which you decide it is the cool thing to do.

When you are in the bathroom and you stand next to me to pee, you are a dude. You can not logically argue that.

For anyone who wants to read more on the subject I suggest you check out the following book. It is extremely well written and tells the hard truth about what young women are doing to themselves to belong to the cult of transgenderism.

More “Higher Learning” Insanity

Every day that passes I think that people can’t get any dumber or become less aware of their surroundings. And yet, every single day I am proven wrong. Today is another one of those days. It looks as though although Cornell will be mandating a flu vaccination for all of its students.

Well, I’m not exactly telling the truth. Only white students will be forced to get the vaccination. Black, brown and indigenous student will not be forced to get the vaccine. You might be asking yourself, why would they only have white kids get it? Are they the sole carriers and transmitters of the flu? Are they disproportionately affected by the flu therefore absolutely requiring a vaccine? 

If you are wondering, the answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO. The reason why will astound you. Here you go:

We recognize that, due to longstanding systemic racism and health inequities in this country, individuals from some marginalized communities may have concerns about needing to agree to such requirements. For example, historically, the bodies the of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain. It is understandable that the current Compact requirements may feel suspect or even exploitative to some BIPOC members of the Cornell community. Additionally, recent acts of violence against Black people by law enforcement may contribute to feelings of distrust or powerlessness.”

Oh boy…WTF? Cornell is 100% serious about this. However, so they don’t get caught out there, they follow up with the following: “While the university “strongly recommend[s]” that nonwhite students comply voluntarily, because “long-standing social inequalities and health disparities have resulted in COVID-19 disproportionately affecting BIPOC individuals,” they will be granted an exemption if they cite their racial identity.”

Undoubtedly this is the most ridiculous and most ass backward policy I have ever seen. Our universities and colleges have taken PC culture to new and unfortunately, predictable places. Who exactly do they think that they are protecting by allowing this? Will it ever end?

They couldn’t have thought this all the way through because if they had, they would have come to the realization that it is policies like this that are doing more damage than good. Not that left cares, but they are the ones who are contributing to the racial divide in this country. They are the ones keeping us separated and pushing for more of a divide.

Why in the world would the left want people to get along? Because it would show that folks actually might have more in common than differences that they and the media harp on 24/7. It would also shatter the leftist myth that all white people are racist, and this nonsensical idea of white privilege is doing nothing but keeping us apart.

Not one ounce of science was used in making this decision, but rather the fear of BLM and other black activist groups. The kowtowing of college administrations is beyond disgusting and hopefully at some point common sense will prevail and these institutions of supposed higher learning will try to bring us together instead of contributing to the problem.

In the era of Harris/Biden, as seen with Obama/Biden, every possible incident that occurs, no matter how small or insignificant, will automatically be attributed to race. The left will continue to falsely accuse everyone who doesn’t agree with them or their policies as bigoted.

It is my sincere hope that the black, brown and indigenous students at Cornell see and understand that a flu shot is not just for them, but also to keep others safe as well. The same will hold true for the COVID vaccine.

Why, Santa Why?

Our country has truly taken a turn for the worse. Just when you thought that 2020 couldn’t get any more bizarre or stupid, things like this happen.

Now please let me know if I am wrong, but the job of a department store Santa, while annoying at times, is a pretty easy gig. Santa asks your kid what they want for Christmas, your kid tells him, and Santa says yes. Your kid leaves happy, you leave happy and on Christmas morning your kid is happy again when he gets that toy.

I saw a video on the internet, however, that defied even that simplicity. The video was simple. Santa was in his chair and a child was seated the lawful 6 feet away. Santa asked the question and the kid, after a couple of seconds, gave his answer. “A nerf gun.” “No, no guns,” he told the child. At this point even the kid had a shocked look on his face. He then told the kid to ask his father for the nerf gun. Of course, the poor kid started crying.

This woke idiot, who decided to impose his ridiculous beliefs on a 4-5 year old child, should have been fired. But I couldn’t find an answer to that question.

It is obvious to me that this faux Santa could not have been a parent. Why do I say that? Because this is how things work.

Starting at around Thanksgiving, or even before, your child starts asking for things for Christmas. In your infinite wisdom, you tell your child, “When we go to see Santa, you can ask him what you want for Christmas.” This is genius for parents. It almost guarantees good behavior from your kid for that month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every time that your child acts up, you just zap them with the old, “Santa sees everything that you do” statement and, more often than not, they stop whatever they are doing.

Christmas Day rolls around, he gets his nerf gun and everything is good with the world.

But this Santa, like most woke people, feel the need to impose their beliefs on everyone else. Nobody cares what you think. His job as a department store Santa, I thought, was too easy to screw up. But I was wrong.

By saying, “no guns,” he effectively destroyed what is potentially the only relatively sane month that a parent has to look forward to all year.

It is more than enough that we have to suffer for the eleven other months of the year listening to how bad we folks on the right are, but now you are treading on unchartered territory by violating the sanctity on that month of relative peace.

Shame on you Santa.

Why Politics Do Matter

This morning I received an interesting response to my post about Robert DeNiro. Here is the main part of the comment that I intend to address with this post: “His politics has nothing to do with his acting.” Another comment followed that said, “I am sure at this point that he is not worried about what the critics think.  

While I agree with the second comment, I truly don’t think he cares what his critics think, I have to take umbridge with his first comment. Unfortunately, DeNiro’s politics have EVERYTHING to do with his acting. With PC culture and cancel culture in full swing, he either doesn’t get it or doesn’t care that probably a full 50% of his audience are not progressives. Those 50% don’t agree with his beliefs and they don’t agree with his vitriolic rants against anyone who supports Trump.

Whatever happened to the 1st Amendment?

So why exactly would I keep spending money to either rent or buy a movie with a person in it who has spent more than four years telling me what a POS I am because I don’t think the way that he does? I won’t. I refuse to. Never once have I heard DeNiro or any other leftist Hollywood moron present an actual argument against Trump. It’s always the same old tiresome invectives.

Now remember, while these same folks don’t have any problem with saying the most vile things about someone on the right, they will cower in fear and issue multiple apologies if they are thought to have insulted someone who is gay, trans or whatever the flavor of the day is. And most of the time, in reality, they haven’t said anything to offend anyone. They immediately are afraid that they will become the latest victim of the “cancel culture.” Watching the ensuing ass kissing would actually be worth the price of an admission.

At this point in our history we have multiple groups of people who can’t stand the fact that people actually don’t agree with every twisted and deranged idea that they come up with. But unlike the left, the right doesn’t engage in infantile and violent protests with vagina hats.

So yes, without a doubt, politics plays a part in every aspect of our lives. No matter what you do, your politics will affect what happens to you. Especially if you are vocal and on the right. I am lucky in that I can pretty much say whatever I want at this point because I am retired and the foolish ultra liberal administration that I used to work for can’t do squat.

For those of you on the left, it doesn’t bother you that these actors and actresses have demonized half of our population? It doesn’t bother you that the left has basically tried to strip us of our 1st Amendment right? If it doesn’t, it really should.

 And while it mainly happens on the right, sometimes someone on the left goes way to far and a company or business has no choice but to take action. But that is only as a case of last resort.

For me, I see it as more of shame that these Hollywood elitists truly don’t care about half of their audience. They send an incredibly strong message to those of us on the right every time that they go on a news show and let half of the country know how exactly how they feel about them.

So as an American who firmly believes in the 1st Amendment and definitely not in PC culture, I have made the choice not to watch, rent or buy anything that DeNiro has had a hand in. I will spend my money elsewhere and continue to speak my mind, just as Bobby D. and the rest of his ilk does.

It all comes down to the freedom to make choices. Bobby D. has made his and I have made mine.

What do you think?

It’s Just Amazing (Not In A Good Way)

At this point a day doesn’t go by where the MSM doesn’t amaze me. I really can’t use the word surprise, because everyone in the country can see how differently Trump was treated during his term except for the media. They chose, instead, to live in their safe little bubble where they know that they can publish (or broadcast) any and every lie that they hear about Trump.

You have to be careful as well to make sure that you understand how I look at the word amazement. In the MSM’s case, it isn’t like I just got out of a five star restaurant and I say, “that was an amazing meal.” Not by a long shot. It just so happens that word when I use that word in regards to the media, it is more along the line of, “wow…look at the softballs they just threw Biden in that interview. That is amazing.” Or, “isn’t it amazing how differently they treat Slow Joe and Harris.” The emphasis is still on how incredible the situation is, but I am hoping that it stresses how incredibly bad it is.

Take Andrea Mitchell from NBC for example. She actually said that Joe’s picks for his cabinet will not be “political.” The fact that she said that on the air with a straight face is, well, amazing.

Jennifer Epstein, from Bloomberg, tweeted the following about Biden, with pictures! “George H.W. Bush was known for his socks, maybe Biden will be too? Today he wore dark blue socks adorned with lighter blue dogs. (Yes, there are plenty of more substantive things to tweet about but we can have some fun sometimes too.)”

I have a question for Jennifer: Where exactly were the fun times for the last five years? The fact that you can write that and tweet it is strikes me as, amazing. One twitter user was astute enough to notice the hypocrisy of the statement and replied with, “If Trump wore these same socks you’d probably write ‘Trump wears blue socks. Why it’s problematic that Hitler once wore the color blue as well.’”

Another twitter user said that, “This is why average Americans hate the media, they see headlines like this after 4 years of attacks on a sitting president and his family.” .I can guarantee you that anyone from the MSM who saw that last response probably said, “they aren’t referring to me. I am perfectly fair and unbiased.”

Lastly, Simone D. Sanders replied to Epstein, “These are my favorite pair of socks he owns.” Not only is that amazing, that is fucking amazing!

This is exactly the type of behavior that we can expect to see during over the next four years. And, if something happens to Biden and Harris becomes president, we will see entirely new levels of media bias. Based on past precedent, she would undoubtedly run the country into the ground and the media would still fawn over everything that she does.

“OMG! Did you see the way she walked back to the Oval Office? What a commanding presence.” Or perhaps, “Wow…did you know that Harris really likes the color green? Who knew?”

It is already embarrassing at this point to see the transition of the MSM from being dicks to being serious dickheads.

All of this and he hasn’t even taken office.

Obama, Once Again, Please Go Away…

As I mentioned several days ago, former Presidents should act as such, FORMER presidents. Unfortunately, Obama has not learned this lesson from past presidents and continues on his insane quest to brand anyone who didn’t like him as racists. It has always struck me as amusing that a man who is half white has never acknowledged as much but yet cries and whines that 70 million Trump voters are racist. And to feed his monstrous ego, he is now coming out with an autobiography that is 768 pages long. And this is only Volume 1!!! This is truly a man who strokes his ego daily the way that a weary traveler is stroked by a whore.

Here is a most recent prize from the former president:

“For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House,” writes Barack Obama in his new memoir, A Promised Land, “Donald Trump promised an elixir for their racial anxiety.”

The problem with the former president is that he is trapped in the same bubble that many on the left are to this very day. All he sees is race no matter what the situation is. Nobody was “spooked” by a racially mixed president. We were “spooked” by his radical agenda and the people that he associated with for his entire adult life. Radical extremists who were members of domestic terrorist groups and a pastor who obviously has no love for our country.

This “elixir” that he speaks of in regards to Trump is only an antidote to Obama’s racial dislike of white people and his policies. In every instance involving an issue between blacks and whites, Obama was always quick to assume the worst about the whites. He seems to forget that in order to have been elected president twice, many WHITE people had to have voted for him. But no, he has to continue to live HIS racist lies. Here is a man who needs to deal with his insecurities.

So once again it is obvious that Obama needs to go away. I don’t care if he writes 50 books, but please do so quietly and as far away from the public as he can.

Unity?? What A Joke!

It is a shame that some folks who become citizens of our great country don’t have the ability to appreciate the gift that they have been given. That’s right. Becoming a citizen if the USA is a gift. One that should be cherished for the entire life of the person who it was given to. In the fiscal year 2018, 756,800 people became naturalized citizens. I would venture a guess that most of these folks are actually proud to be Americans. But no, we have a woman, who did gain her citizenship and yet does nothing but denigrate those who don’t believe what she does. Illhan Omar, a member of the Quad squad, isn’t happy that she received her citizenship, that she was elected to public office or that her standard of living is so much more than it would have been in Somalia.

Her latest vitriolic ramble was about the Trump rally that was held over the weekend. Instead of celebrating people supporting the President, or just ignoring them, she referred to this march as a “Klan Rally.” Furthermore, she added that “The president clearly loves to prey on people’s fears. He spreads the disease of hate everywhere he goes, and these cult rallies that he’s holding across the country are now being fueled by fear, and it is no surprise that he is so fearful of winning Minnesota that he has to resort to this hate.” Cult rallies? Klan Rally? Are you kidding me?

Didn’t Slow Joe say that he wanted the division in America to end? To promote unity between the parties? Well, after the last couple of days I’m not buying it. The left are nothing more than spiteful cry babies who stamp their feet if they don’t get what they want. They yell, scream and call people the same five names that they have been for many, many years. And what would those words be? Let’s see. Racist, homophobe, transphobe, misogynist and white supremacist.

I recently read a meme that said the following: “I will no longer look at election day as a battle between democrat and republican, but rather as a battle between good and evil.” At this point I am inclined to agree.

Who has been sowing the seeds of hate since Trump announced his candidacy? Who lumps all of Trump’s supporters as those five words and says that we are in a cult? Who has been rioting and burning cities for months and their party took almost as many months to condemn them? Who wants to defund our police departments and instead, send social workers or psychologists into potentially dangerous situations? Who wants more and more government and has said that they want to erode our God given liberties such as the 2nd Amendment? I would mention the 1st Amendment but that has already gone by the wayside thanks to the ANTIFA pigs, BLM radicals and the education system.

If the problem truly has been Trump, then why does left continue with their verbal assaults? He will be gone shortly. I’ll tell you why. They have nothing else. Their radical policies like raising taxes, the green new deal, and free everything has to be paid for and it isn’t going to come from the leftist basement dwellers. It is going to come from hard working people and retirees such as myself who will see their paychecks dwindle to pay for this crap. People aren’t literally buying into this nonsense.

And just one more thing. If Omar or anyone else who has been given the gift of citizenship says that they are unhappy, they should go back to where they came from so they can experience true oppression. So they can see what real racism looks like and see how they treat minorities. Maybe, just maybe they will begin to appreciate the gift that they have been given. Somehow I am thinking that this will be to much to ask.

And yes, Somalia is a “shithole.”

A Younger, Dumber Nancy Pelosi

Every time that I see or read something from AOC, several questions come to mind.

  1. Did she actually graduate from high school?
  2. Did she actually graduate from college?

And the most important question:

  • Does she even remotely give one second of thought to the nonsense that comes out of her mouth?

She has a brilliant idea on how to help the postal service. Buy more stamps. Are you kidding me? She was elected to office and her plan is to set up a nation wide pen pal system so you can meet people and write them letters. I am sorry, but this is without a doubt the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Let me say that again for those of you who may have missed it. That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard in my entire life.

It is apparent to me that if she didn’t represent a district that is overwhelmingly democrat, she wouldn’t be representing anyone. The things that this woman says in most cases are idiotic at best and dangerous at the worst.

But yet there she is. Hasn’t she realized that technology has improved and she can contact anyone she wants on a multitude of devices in a matter of seconds? And get this: She can receive a reply from them just as fast.

Who does she think is actually going to do this? I know the folks at my post office pretty well. The next time I am there I am going to ask them to quiz people that buy stamps to see if they mention AOC. I’m almost positive I’ll be batting zero on any AOC responses.

It is kind of sad to think that AOC actually got elected for anything except for Mayor of the sandbox. As a person with a degree in economics, you would think at the very least she would think through her ideas before exposing them to the entire world. But no, she just throws them out there and waits for one to stick.

I can see this one sliding down the wall already.
