Some might say 5% right, 100% arrogant. Universities digging their own grave. Can't happen soon enough. IMO, Hanson is probably the most astute writer in the country at the moment.


Aaaah, my daily Humperdink troll post.


I prefer term "trawl", as in trawling the bottom. Fishing term. You never know what you will bring up. Like today, it brought interstorm to the surface.


Give me three ways in which "trawling" is, in anyway, the most productive method of "discussing" politics, or provides any ground whatsoever for a rational public policy discussion to be had.

"Trawling" is asking people to mock you and assume the worst about what you represent. Is that your goal here?

Haha, Hump, you're not helping your case. Congrats on being able to use Google though. Did you go to high school? You're saying that everyone, regardless of major, should take an introductory, low-level history course that repeats what they learned in 10-12th grade? What do you think college is for Hump?

Ever hear of Fen's Law?

To summarize: When a liberal has a viewpoint that is erroneous and facts are presented that directly dispute his facts, he remains steadfast. Unmoved.

You said: "And yes, the most astute writer in the country thinks that universities should teach high-school history." He said no such thing. Response had no impact on you.

You said: "That's... high-school history." I present to you U of Pitt courses that teach it. You disregard.

Having been removed from high school and college for decades now, I suspect they still teach Civil War history in both high school and college. Just guessing. If they do, today's learned students must be too stoooopid to remember it. Or ..... or they just want to destroy anything in their path. I put my money on the latter. Which is the violent wing of your political party Mr. Arts. You can't escape that, however noble your effort.

Hump, do you think Fen's Law is true? Just curious. I mean, coming from the Trump party. Just thinking out loud here.

The article also says, which you conveniently left out:

"Universities are certainly teaching our youth to be confident, loud and self-righteous. But the media blitz during these last several weeks of protests, riots and looting also revealed a generation that is poorly educated and yet petulant and self-assured without justification.

Many of the young people on the televised front lines of the protests are in their 20s. But most appear juvenile, at least in comparison to their grandparents — survivors of the Great Depression and World War II.

How can so many so sheltered and prolonged adolescents claim to be all-knowing?

Ask questions like these, and the answers ultimately lead back to the university."

The rest of the article goes on to berate colleges, not high-schools. Highschool appears exactly once in the introduction as an add-on. The author is clearly establishing that these college students are undereducated, though the colleges "certainly [teach] our youth to be confident" in an attempt to disgrace the college education. Thus implying that they should be teaching civil-war history as well.

Like yourself, the author has trouble staying on task or weaving a coherent argument, beginning with the far left calling for the removal of controversial statues, before criticising colleges for not doing more to "guarantee" jobs (which is an absolutely ludicrous statement, coming from the anti-handout crowd). He places the onus on the university for thoroughly educating the student, versus the student choosing a university he or she can afford, and showing up to class without a hangover. He then draws a correlation to the uneducated students protesting the murder of George Floyd, which I hope you would find offensive. He then offers a half-baked idea to solve student loan debt under the threat that the old, white tax payers know what's best for the student's education, which is laughable. He then suggests that university liberals support socialism, which ironically no democrat in the country supports. He then asks why professors should be tenured when they can't, again, guarantee jobs, as if it's somehow up to them. He again, back to our original argument, claims that they're aren't properly educated their students (in high-school history apparently). He then wails about Zoom classes costing as much as in-person classes, though the professor does indeed need to do the same amount of work, and deserve the same amount of pay. He then asks why Yale and Standford should be exempt from name-changing, to which the answer is quite obvious. He then states that universities risk becoming obsolete and replaceable, but doesn't say what would replace them, to which the answer is obviously nothing. He reveals that the omnipotent tax payers, who are ironically 40 years out of touch with modern education and job-seeking, haven't figured out the solution, but when they do, look out!

Your article is a lot of talk that makes you feel righteous, but it's poorly written Hump. Sorry to inform you. If you watch VDH's critique of Biden; he slurs and mumbles his way through claiming that Biden slurs and mumbles too much. It's hilarious.

I will give you credit though, at least it's not a far right hit-piece, so you're showing improvement. So, let's go back to Fen's law. I just hit you with quite a bit of logic, will you recant? I highly doubt it.

Just in case you're wondering, this is what a well-written article looks like. It's a take down of the establishment left, so I assure you you'll like it. You'll notice how the author (who in this case is quite astute, perhaps one of the most astute ever), uses lonnnng sentences, big words, and actually make an argument, instead of just saying a lot of things all at once that make you feel better on the inside and confirm what you already know.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/ar ... nd/302349/

This is the type of writing you should be searching for Hump, not little punchlines to get clicks from a clearly partisan blog. News literacy is your friend, exercise it. I look forward to reading what you come up with.

This is perhaps the article that you meant to post:

https://quillette.com/2020/06/26/neo-to ... f-history/

The author, again (there's a pattern here), forms an argument anchored in morality and historical civics. His tone is tempered and professional. He doesn't describe the left as an "exploitative blob." He doesn't jump at every opportunity to "destroy" the left and pack as many weak-wristed punches into a 500-word article as he can. He doesn't refer to protesters as "the militant wing of the democratic party (mostly because that's a thing that you invented, ironically, given the well-regulated militia stuff of the right)."

How about even more impartiality? This is what it's like to read a study in a scientific journal:

https://science.sciencemag.org/content/ ... ce.abc0035

https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/20/eaay3188

Notice how they provide you with an abstract to see if you're interested in reading, and explain their methods. If you disagree with their outcome, it should be easy to articulate, since you can clearly explain where they went wrong. There are not partisan slights, no mentions of Biden and his basement, just transparency for all to see. You can even compare studies, and reach informed conclusions based on real research that you didn't even have to do!

So please Hump, do us all a favor and quit it with the soap-opera level political revelations. They're not constructive, civilized, or helpful in any way. You're not changing any minds, in fact, you're doing quite the opposite. Maybe you think it's fun, but it's quite clearly part of the problem that drives you to post here daily. If you want to convince all of the liberals to stop being evil, maybe you should embody that same spirit in your own actions. Post with good intentions; use your time productively.

Guns are flying off the shelves at sporting goods stores across the US. Obviously due to the paramilitary wing of the democrat party exercising their right to burn, loot and destroy. That begets the question: who has the largest gun range for the shooting sports in the United States?

A) Ben Avery Shooting Facility. Phoenix, AZ
B) Athena Gun Club. Houston TX
C) MGV Gun Range. Las Vegas, NV
D) The City of Chicago. Chicago, IL

If you guessed D, Chicago, you would be correct.

The city of Chicago is home to the United States's largest shooting range at 227 square miles. Centrally located in the mid-west, Chicago offers many advantages that other ranges can't satisfy. Don't have a gun? Not to worry, most models and calibers can be obtained with little fanfare on any street corner (cash only). Have a criminal record? Convicted of multiple felonies? Chicago is your go-to place. The reason? The national background check system (NICS) does not apply within the city limits as the city has been granted an exemption. Additionally, live targets are in abundance as the city is home to 2.5 million people, although the numbers fluctuate wildly depending on the daily morgue tally.

Another advantage is liability insurance is not required should you inadvertently shoot someone (or deliberately for that matter). The homicide conviction rate is abysmally low in the windy city. The city has a term called "exceptionally cleared" when a murder has been cleared even though no arrest has been made.

The city of Chicago awaits you! (Note: Although body armor is not required, it is strongly suggested you bring your own, along with a fast car.)

God is not a real thing, but you're conservative, so of course you believe in baseless, ancient stories. Of the top, let's say, ten most influential politicians, who would you say is the most Christ-like? Do you feel like your political and societal attitudes are in line with what the Bible teaches? This should be interesting.

If I were to quest for the most generic, low-effort, stereotypically conservative video that a righteous conservative could share as proof of the "evil" democrats, I think this might be the one.

Thanks for poking fun at the socioeconomic hell-hole that is real life for hundreds of thousands of people. Have you ever looked into how that came to be? I'm sure it's 100% on the libs. Has to be. Do you know where the guns used in Chicago violent crimes come from (hint: ~60% aren't from Illinois (you may want to look into where they come from))? It's also cute that you show concern for those looking to buy guns with a criminal record though in your previous sentence you explain how they're clearly available on street corners for cash. What biting wit! I hope you have a license for your cunning, it's lethal! And about that NICS exemption, you may want to double check that. You wouldn't want to be spreading misinformation, would you? The potential shame! How are NYC's gun laws relative to Chicago? How do its homicide numbers compare? Hmmm. Maybe the issue lies elsewhere Hump...but that's too much work for you. Just keep on fighting for freedom, or whatever you think you're doing.

It's so bizarre that while your prophet GOP pals are up to their ears in scandals that have national-security and sovereignty implications, you're babbling on about gun laws in Chicago. GREAT job. At bare minimum, there are free speech controversies that you're ignoring.

Hump, I think it's time for you to see a therapist, and I'm not being facetious. I'm saying this as one human being reaching out to another. Your behavior and attitudes are not normal, and you show no remorse for your mistakes nor a desire to learn from them. That should strike you as alarming. Would you prefer if everyone acted as you do? Do you feel like you're exempt from the golden rule? I don't know how you justify your actions to yourself, but I would strongly suggest clearing them with a professional. Your insurance will likely cover some form of therapy or counselling. It's actually a great sign of strength to seek help. You'll find that not only will your relationships improve with your friends and family, but you'll be more productive and happier in your life. Sometimes the hardships of life can sour our disposition, and you need to know that it's not permanent. I'm not trying to make you agree with my political leanings, but I am saying that it's possible to be more constructive with yours. Do yourself a favor, call you PCP, and tell them you'd like to talk to someone. It can't hurt. You may need to try a few different therapists until you find one that clicks with you. There are lots of free and anonymous resources online as well, if you're unsure of the whole thing. I sincerely wish you luck.

So here we have a video of the following people singing the praises about the presidents on Mt. Rushmore:

> Chris (#Me Too) Matthews

> Bernie (Yep, I honeymooned in Moscow) Sanders

> Barack (Peace Prize, league leader in smart bomb tonnage) Obama

> Michelle (Never been proud of the USA) Obama

A veritable Who's Who of Democrats. And we have a commenter who thinks this is a "stereotypically conservative video", when it's all democrats in the video. Sweet.

The armed St. Louis homeowner's are now under investigation for standing on their front porch, defending themselves from the violent wing of the democrat party. Remember that a few weeks ago?

Does anyone remember this from 2013? In a Facebook chat Tuesday, the vice president (Stuttering Joe) said that he had advised his wife, Jill, to fire a shotgun in the air from their Delaware home's porch if she was concerned for her safety.

"I said, 'Jill, if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'" Biden said."

Not concerned with being under investigation, they need to be since guns were in view of people and in public. I’d be more concerned if the police ignored it without due diligence. It looks like they did nothing wrong but the video didn’t show everything that happened.

I’ll be concerned if they are arrested for it unless someone else comes from the investigation. On the surface and after a thorough investigation are sometimes two entirely different things. I have a feeling they’ll be the scapegoat but we’ll see.

You may want to dig a little deeper into who is behind the investigation. It is local prosecutor Kim Gardner.

"“In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner,” read Schmitt’s tweet Wednesday morning. Schmitt would be the Missouri state Attorney General.

You always stop at the best part of the article hump. Or was that too deep to dig for you? Did you read Gardner’s response? Or do you support skipping due process?

Your fascination with rioters and statues is quite bizarre.

Nope. Never did. When I got politically active, I was too old to run.

I did work on US Senator Rick Santorum's campaign in 1994. Pro-life Christian guy. A victory. I voted for Bob Casey Sr. (D-Pa) several times. Pro-life Christian guy. Casey's son is an absolute dud as a senator. Arises from being in a coma every 6 years, one week before the election

Not concerned with being under investigation, they need to be since guns were in view of people and in public. I’d be more concerned if the police ignored it without due diligence. It looks like they did nothing wrong but the video didn’t show everything that happened.

I’ll be concerned if they are arrested for it unless someone else comes from the investigation. On the surface and after a thorough investigation are sometimes two entirely different things. I have a feeling they’ll be the scapegoat but we’ll see.


You may want to dig a little deeper into who is behind the investigation. It is local prosecutor Kim Gardner.

"“In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner,” read Schmitt’s tweet Wednesday morning. Schmitt would be the Missouri state Attorney General.


You always stop at the best part of the article hump. Or was that too deep to dig for you? Did you read Gardner’s response? Or do you support skipping due process?

Your fascination with rioters and statues is quite bizarre.


Get a grip dude!!

More Kim Gardner: " After our story (KMOV TV) aired Tuesday night, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney has doubled down on her claim that city police held her for over 15 minutes during a traffic stop, but police and surveillance video tell a different story.

On December 23, police spotted a car driving without headlights down Market Street. Police initiated a traffic stop. St. Louis police said the driver was Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner.

We (KMOV) asked the circuit attorney for an interview, but instead received a written statement. The first statement referenced the night of December 23 as the night of the traffic stop. However, Gardner’s office sent a second amended statement saying the traffic stop happened on December 24.

That contradicts the surveillance video."

She hates cops. What a surprise.

Edit to add: She the perfect DA for a major crime-ridden city.

Does anyone remember this from 2013? In a Facebook chat Tuesday, the vice president (Stuttering Joe) said that he had advised his wife, Jill, to fire a shotgun in the air from their Delaware home's porch if she was concerned for her safety.

"I said, 'Jill, if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'" Biden said."

I’ll make you a deal: I’ll get a grip if you learn how to not selectively read whatever you want to see. You’re literally picking parts of articles that fit your narrative while leaving out the information that blows it up. That’s middle-school level debating Hump. You’re going to have to do better than that.

The DA works hand-in-hand with the police to reduce crime. The St. Louis DA has an adversarial relationship with the police. And doubles down on it. That is no mystery. Some people, well let's say most, think this will not result in positive outcomes. A regular commenter on this site apparently disagrees, which is his right.

Please quote me exactly saying anything like that; you won’t able to. I caught you, for the Nth time, cherry picking data to fit your narrative. I know it’s embarrassing, but unfortunately the thing to do in this situation is apologize, not double down and try to cover it up with another make-believe story.

You’ve accrued quite a list of misdeeds in only the last handful of days! Are you going to explain yourself, or just continue posting “parodies” as if they’re a substitute for an informed argument? I think I already know the answer...

Conservatives have reached a new low. They have embarked upon a new dirty trick for the upcoming campaign. That is, quoting democrats word for word on their previously held positions (See: Mt. Rushmore video above). Amazing how the internet preserves things.

Speaking of being informed (cough), someone has been feverishly cleansing Kamala Harris's Wikipedia page of all references to her previously held position as a "Law and Order" AG. She must be in the running to be Stuttering Joe's Veep. Left-wing website The Intercept notes that Harris’ page has been edited 408 times in the last three weeks.

Do you really think that's what the video shows? It looks to me like a CNN anchor says one thing, and then establishment democrat politicians say another, but the two views aren't necessarily exclusive. I don't think that's a conflict Hump. It's an extraordinarily weak way of suggesting hypocrisy. That's why I said it was low-effort. Do you really feel that it proves a point? If so, what point? You really should look for examples of conservative hypocrisy... they are indeed plentiful, I know it's hard to imagine. The funny part is that I would hope we have politicians who can change their minds when confronted with new ideas. Isn't that what you want in a supposed intellectual? No?

There's a reason why few progressives are calling for her as the VP. She's "tough on crime," so you should like her right? Great job on finding your way over the intercept!

Ah, changing the subject again Hump. Let's not, ok? So, are you going to apologize for cherry picking information about your previous topic? It's the moral thing to do Hump. Remember how you "forgot" to clarify your Flynn comments? Amazing how the internet preserves things.
