Letter to Travel Channel: Man Finds Food

Air Man Finds Food.

I think we all know at this point the altercation that got Adam in trouble was with someone who’s reputation isn’t exactly that of a Saint. She used the controversy generated with Adam Richman to raise funds for her website which appears to have been the goal all along. Much of the alleged “altercation”, specifically her side of the exchange, went missing and could not be verified.

In short, I think we can move on now. Please air Man Finds Food. Adam’s fans are en-masse and this small spark fizzled out for most long ago.

I have heard NOBODY say that having to present an ID at a gun show is violating any freedoms. HOWEVER the argument IS that the left seems to have a rather perverted opinion of what the 2nd amendment is. “…all threats foreign and DOMESTIC” does not mean Bambi is armed with a Tec-9 and hunting down sportsmen. It DOES mean that citizens have a right, constitutionally, to revolt. How do they do it without guns? Rocks and sticks? If the tables were turned and a Republican was in office crossing the line how would you feel? As a Modern Whig Party member, I don’t choose a side. But I understand why the amendment is there. And understand the common sense of why guns are key.
The only reason you are against having an ID to vote is because you know you can’t win an election unless you cheat. Period.

Al Qaeda still wants to kill us but we’ve been pretty successful at keeping them from doing that. For some reason we needed a new boogeyman. I wonder why?
 
We’ve spent trillions on Homeland Security, outfitted every Barney Fife in the nation with robo-cop gear and allowed the government to spy on Americans at will. I don’t know about you but I kind of expect that all of that should actually be worth something. If we’re going to run around tearing our hair out every time somebody puts out a scary video maybe it’s time to re-evaluate that strategy.
 
This is not to say that there isn’t a threat for the people in the Middle East and there is a legitimate argument to be made that it requires intervention from outside the region lest the whole place blows up even further. (I’m not sure we won’t make things worse —- we usually do — but I understand the arguments for it.) What is galling is the fact that they continue to treat us like children and tell us spooky bedtime stories so they can scare us into supporting their commercial/geopolitical goals. Maybe those goals are worth pursuing but we’ll never know because we’re chasing evil Ninjas who are allegedly coming over the border to unleash mushroom clouds on American cities.

Al Qaeda has a strategy to create dramatic terrorist attacks on the West. We’ve known this for a long, long time. That has not changed. ISIS is a different problem. The fact that the war hawks pimped this line about ISIS being worse than Al Qaeda should make everyone skeptical of what they are hearing about this whole thing —- and skeptical of the motivations behind it. How many times do we have to be lied to?

So they aren’t more dangerous to us than al Qaeda after all? Why would they have said that?

When I suggested that the GOP was trying to make us really super afraid of ISIS because there’s an election coming up, and they do this before every election going back a decade, the stupidsphere lost its collective shit at me, and said that I believed — I am not making this up — that ISIS is “a Republican plot to win elections.” Of course, that’s not what I said, but boy when those idiots get stuck on a narrative, they *really* go all-in with it.

ISIS is bad news, and especially bad news to its region, but we don’t need to be wetting our pants about them here in America, because, in spite of what the GOP and the bedwetters in the stupidsphere want us to believe, the entire stupid homeland security apparatus has been pretty good at keeping the bad guys out of America (unless you count the handful of morons who were entrapped by FBI, posing as terrorists, who never would have gotten a single idea off the ground otherwise.)

The stupidsphere desperately wants to start dropping bombs all over the place, because they don’t know how to do anything else, and they really need to feel macho, facts be damned.

Spoken like an arrogant Hollywoodite. No offense, WILL, but I’m not getting my head chopped off based on your dumb theories and meandering. Stick to acting and stop trying to have something to say about politics. You Hollywood people are very out of touch and ignorant.

FACT: ISIS is a threat to all Islam, not just Western white people.

FACT: Even IRAN, who are extremists themselves, feel threatened by ISIS.

FACT: Al-Qaeda and ISIS once were joined, but after a power struggle Al-Qaeda separated because ISIS is too brutal. Really??? Wow.

FACT: The threat of ISIS is joining unlikely allies together because though normally at odds with each other, this is a threat that unites.

FACT: Obama’s OWN people are saying this is a serious threat. So, your point about this being GOP manufactured scare tactic is a load of bull crap.

If you are so sure of yourself, go hang out in Texas for a year. Let me know how it works out for you.

Dumbass.

I unfollowed a 9/11 truther on instagram yesterday.

proudblackconservative:

He’s the husband of a kinda friend I knew from a long time ago and he’s always been a pretty extreme conservative (like the kind Tumblr thinks we are but that most of us would find loony), but I wasn’t dealing any of that nonsense.

I unfollowed a 9/11 truther on here on 9/11 because he was going around telling people who were mourning they lived a lie. Why is it people with names like: “EXPOSING EVERYTHING” and “ENDING THE LIES” are also wearing tinfoil hats?

If Tumblr is so full of “feminists” and people who support “social justice” then why the hell, why the HELL isn’t there more outrage about the absolutely atrocious way women are treated in the Muslim world? They are beheaded, stoned to death, buried alive, punished for reporting rape, sold to old men when they are still children, have their genitals mutilated, beaten to death, not allowed to vote or testify in court. Screw being “second class citizens”, they are treated worst than cattle. Where is the anger? Would you stay quiet if the Vatican did this? Or is not supporting abortion basically the same as destroying a young girl’s clitoris?  We can boycott Chick-fil-a but when they hang gays in Saudi Arabia no one bats an eyelash? Do you just expect Muslims to act like savages and that’s why you don’t get mad? I want an answer, Tumblr. 

All Tumblr “activists” usually say in response is, 1: “Sharia isn’t that bad,” or 2: “Muslim women choose that life.”

They don’t “choose” anything. It’s forced on them under penalty of death. Sure, they will say, “I’m happy with this life.” But it’s been long proven people will say anything under duress to fend off torture or death. So tell me another one.

The TRUTH About Minimum Wage

Once again, the social media social justice brigade has tackled a symptom instead of the disease. Repeat after me: It’s not as simple as raising minimum wage.

The disease is inflation and the lowered value of the dollar. 20 dollars could easily feed a large family 50 years ago, now it’ll barely get you a few groceries for one person. Finding sustainable sources rather than spending what we don’t have is the only way to tackle inflation, which will make any money you earn go farther without the unwanted side effect of making it harder for small businesses (the real heart of american industry) to hire people because of increased wage requirements. One possible idea (and I’m sure it has some issues I haven’t thought through, this is just off the top of my head) is to adjust minimum wage based on what a company earns. That way the laws wouldn’t hurt small businesses that want to be able to hire people but can’t afford it, while still requiring larger earners to give their employees fair wages.

Money has to come from somewhere.

We cannot just wave a magic wand and give people more money without consequences. Most businesses are going to cope with paying their employees more by raising their prices. Cost of living goes up, people will want to be paid more, and the cycle continues. Now certainly Wal-Mart can afford to pay its employees more than Frankie Joe’s pizza Palace or Mama Jane’s bakery, but Jane and Joe won’t be able to keep up with increasing minimum wage without raising their prices significantly and probably losing business to the Wal-Mart.

I keep saying raising the minimum wage is like putting a band-aid on a severed artery. It doesn’t solve anything, it just makes people feel better for a while. But then gears shift and in a year, they are complaining they don’t have enough money again.

People won’t solve the whole problem, most of them will get their raise and then bail before the job is done of solving the problem in it’s entirety.
