Sunday Morning News & Notes

Happy Super Bowl (TM) Sunday. I like the Falcons in a close one 28-24. Matty Ice is at that part of his career where he's ready to lead his team to a title. Evidently someone thinks the same.

Here's what's happening:

-For decades the word fascist has been defined as strong central government and authoritarian rule. Business is rigidly part of the governmental system. It has never been defined as left-wing or right-wing...except by Google:

Here's Merriam Webster's definition:

And here's Google's.

No wonder the actual fascists have no idea what fascism is, they get all their info from Google and Occupy Democrats.

-Who knew Monty Python and the Holy Grail was part documentary?

- College is supposed to be about learning and being exposed to ideas and views you've not encountered before. Pure debate is dead and in it's place is whining, crying and safety pins where before it was counter ideas, free thought and intellectualism. This is a great read, however the fascists on the left do not want free speech or freedom of thought, they want a strict adherence to their doctrine and there's zero room for any variance. Hence the violence to shut outside thoughts down. A good example is a free-thinking homosexual or African-American who is completely ignored or worse for thinking for themselves.

- I posted this on Facebook yesterday but think it deserves a little more comment. What the left does not get or just chooses to ignore is that the new Republican party is not you fathers GOP. We are way more libertarian than in the past and the Christian portion of the party does not hold as much sway as they previously did. Homosexuality and recreational drug use are largely excepted in the party by those who are in their 40's and 50's. The party lost that battle and it's mostly because the people of my generation opted to sit that one out. We don't give a shit if you're gay, Black or purple, we care that we all have equal rights and smaller government. Good for the people in this deeply religious area for choosing a man based on the content of his character.

- California is considering exiting the US. From a purely intellectual perspective taking emotions out of it, it would truly be better for the nation as a whole. California has enormous debt for pensions and the spending continues apace. Add to that the number of liberal votes that would leave the union and you're talking about a center-right nation going forward for a generation. I would ensure that the vote was done properly with options such as Orange and San Diego counties remaining part of the US as well as the inland areas. I would imagine that Oregon and Washington state would also contemplate joining the Golden State if they were to make such a move. That would essentially leave the entire west coast from LA to the border unprotected or at least only protected by whatever military California opted to have--meaning none. This is a good read though it is the LA Times so normal bias is evident.
