    On the contrary, I enjoy a well-argued critique. You've said things I tend to think might be right, such as your assertion that the UFO situation might be part of the next round of rights-snatching. Werner Von Braun would have agreed. But then you make posts like the one I was responding to which seem shallow at best and a weaselly sort of "devil's advocate" at worst. I don't expect you to apologize and back down, I expected that you'd defend your position. Which might result is a spirited discussion for all. You basically said I was being a hypocrite. I stated why I think that is not the case. Volley?

    However , you can see the same objection of stereotyping from the other side.

    We can argue the points for sure , provided we are consistent in observation, generalization, and exception.
    Yes. City dwelling Left and the rural Right both have negative generalizations about each other.

    The big difference is that the latter is correct.

    Thank you! I think we are good.

    I said you are at risk of hypocrisy. My intent was that people of our quality are carful to avoid that. It was an attempt at being inclusive.

    What would be enough celebration, Justin? Can it even be measured? A cock in the mouth of every man? Didn't you guys just arrest the straight white European pastor of a church for trying to hold services? Can he get his fine reduced if he sucks a cock? What exactly the fuck are you people doing up there?
    Apologies Coach, after I read your post YouTube recommended this video. Glad their not watching everything we do!

    One of the main reasons I am not giving in to the despair so many posters here have for the governance in DC.

    The thing about hypocrisy, is how utterly irrelevant it is to one's position or argument. Sure, as I've tried to point out, it has an emotional pull. The accusation triggers certain mental reflexes. But even if every last "rural right" (a weird categorization on its own) was a hypocrite that says nothing about whether or not the position has merit. Someone who typically touts ending illegal immigration doesn't erase that politically necessary idea because they hire an illegal immigrant to do their lawn. What was it Emerson said, "Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers?" Let the Marxists have this. They like to purity test those on their side and eat their own. Let them study each other for hypocrisy and focus more on avoiding it than getting anything done. We freedom loving people have bigger fish to fry and no need to pass judgment on those who are not perfect but who may be with us on our goals.

    I don't think we're hypocrites in how we view the compliant city sardines, but even if we were guilty of it for that view, the downhill slide towards ball-less domestication still needs to be arrested as soon as possible. Ironically, the eunuchs are going to make life harder for us.

    Speaking of hypocrisy... This energy exec does a great job of calling out the hypocrisy of a woke corporation.

    Great to see.

    I read a great comment on the situation where the Amazon delivery driver beat the 67 year old woman. They pointed out that if Amazon has engaged in diversity training: including ideas related to Critical Race Theory that demonizes “whiteness”, they could be found liable. Here is the story in case you haven’t seen it. Amazon female driver wails on 67 year-old lady… – CITIZEN FREE PRESS

    Barry is right about this.

    If Amazon subjected their employees to CRT brainwashing, are they liable for this assault? They have a lot of money, you know.
