Out of the Mouths of Babes . . . When Keeping Quiet Might Be Better!

Interesting how a teenage boy can command and demand an audience of adults to do his bidding because he says so. I’m getting tired of hearing his name on the news, listening to his foul language, and the lack of research in his pronouncements. Fox News Laura Ingraham called him ‘whiny’ and he immediately calls for a boycott. Sad to say, instead of ignoring this liberal pawn, companies supposedly owned and operated by grownups are falling quickly in line behind a seventeen year old. The world has certainly come to a sorry state. So far, Rachel Ray’s pet food company, Nutrish, was first to declare a boycott. Now, Expedia, Nestle, Hulu, and Wayfair are declaring their support of a child. Well, easy enough to give up Nutrish in my counter boycott – my dogs hated it! There is more than one way to plan a trip so Expedia’s absence from my life is quite okay. Nestle chocolate isn’t that great and there are alternatives to all their products. Hulu and Wayfair are not a constant in my life so closing the door on them works for me.

I will, however, make an effort to catch Laura Ingraham’s show as often as possible while observing which of her advertisers are grownup enough to continue their advertising on her show.

Anything To Push an Agenda . . .

Let’s review the events of last week. Tragically, a school shooting took place, something that should never happen in a civilized world. If only there had been some warning . . . Wait! The police had visited the home of shooter something like 39 times. Evidently, this did not raise a serious red flag for them. The FBI was notified but they were probably busy hunting down the nonexistent Russian collusion matter. The shooter had been posting disturbing items on his Facebook. Still no real attention to a possibly explosive problem. Then, destroying the memory of Valentine’s Day for many families, the shooter went into the school, armed and ready, and killed 17 people and wounded many others. People wondered why there was no preparation for handling this kind of event . . . Where was the police response? Uh, outside the door of the school for four of six minutes it took place.

Immediately the news tore into this event and put blame where they felt blame was due . . . It was President Trump’s fault. Even though he immediately expressed his anger and offered condolences to the families involved, the news still felt it was President Trump’s fault.

Next to come under fire was the NRA. Where was the membership of the NRA at that time and place? Nowhere. There has never been a member of NRA involved in any such incident. They advocate training, responsibility, and consider the Second Amendment to still be a constitutional right.

Having determined, by the sane minds among us that a lot of blame goes to the FBI and the police department, the liberal faction and their minions are promoting student protests and demeaning the President and encouraging companies to boycott the NRA – who wasn’t even present at the horrific event.

In order to cement the uproar over school shooting and insure success in insulting President Trump and trying to outlaw the NRA, CNN has news reports that are easily exposed as untruths and several people invited to their meetings and that the questions they wanted to present were dropped by CNN in favor of scripted ones that will push their agenda.

The following are the wishy-washy companies that can’t stand up for their own values and chose to go with the left’s viewpoint to punish businesses. Given the weakness of the companies, I’m certainly making sure I don’t support any of them in the future.

First National Bank of Omaha: The bank announced that it would not renew a co-branded Visa credit-card with the NRA.

The Hertz Corp.: The rental car company ended its discount program for NRA members.
MetLife Inc.: The insurer terminated discounts that had been offered to NRA members on the NRA website

Enterprise Holdings Inc.: The car rental company that also owns Alamo and National cut off discounts for NRA members.

Symantec Corp.: The software company that makes Norton Antivirus technology ended its discount program with the NRA.

Chubb Ltd.: The insurer announced it was ending participation in the NRA’s gun-owner insurance program, though it provided notice three months ago.

Best Western: The hotel chain told multiple social media users that it was no longer affiliated with the NRA, though it did not say when that decision was made.

Wyndham Hotels: The hotel chain told social media users it is no longer affiliated with the NRA without specifying when that decision was made.

Meanwhile, I’m wondering about the blame being heaped on the President regarding the latest school shooting. What about the weekly bloodbaths in the strictly gun controlled Chicago? Perhaps, the mayor there should be held accountable . . . the governor of the State of Illinois.

Another thought is why the evil and bad of the gun world is always reported in ‘big print’ when there are probably many cases where someone having a registered weapon saved lives. And, if gun control would solve the problem, would all the liberals that have an entourage of armed security be willing to disarm them, too? Would they continue to need their gated communities?

In the News . . .

Kirsters Baish| The newly elected Chairman of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, has stated that George Soros’ “Open Society” group has exactly 28 days to pack up and get out of Austria once and for all. The 31-year-old is currently the youngest world leader ever. He has explained to his colleagues that they cannot wait any longer and action against George Soros must be acted upon immediately. He made these statements following news that broke out stating that George Soros actually donated $18 billion of his $24 billion fortune to his “Open Society” Foundation.

Kurz was quoted saying, “The situation has become critical. Soros is throwing everything he has behind his push for global control. Misinformation and media manipulation has already increased exponentially overnight. We have no room for complacency.”

Kurz has called himself a truther who explained that he was “red pilled” by the 9/11 film “Loose Change.” He explains that he is onto Soros’ sick agenda and he has said “there is no way in hell this country will be his fifth victim.”
