From 2 responses from Comics Kingdom after jski reposted your post from here to there. One from 28ed and the other from Jeb_Jr. Try to learn something.
Shall we take Deltigar point by point? Yes, I think we shall.1. Nope, not true-totally overstated. It’s about privacy in public locker rooms and showers, about keeping biological males from competing against women in violation of Title IX in high school and college athletics. And yes, about preventing some from abusing gender-neutral community facilities for the wrong reasons.
2. Nope, wrong again. It’s about Latinos COMING HERE ILLEGALLY, taking potential jobs from taxpaying U.S. citizens, and illegally taking advantage of taxpayer-funded benefits. It’s about trying to prevent more Kate Steinle’s from being killed. Conservatives have no problems with legal immigration.
3. Yes, the do fear the current government, and for good reasons. The aforementioned Kate Steinle is but one example. That government’s lack of federal law enforcement allowed her killer to return and roam free after being deported multiple times in a city that knew he was here and refused to incarcerate him. That same government has lied repeatedly to it’s citizens, about such things as keeping medical insurance plans and the cause of the Benghazi attack, and many more, both large and small. That government has done end-around runs to avoid the legislative process when it feared it wouldn’t get it’s way, and has permitted judicial activism to impose “laws.” That government’s leadership has intentionally gone out of it’s way to further divide (and conquer?) an already deeply divided electorate. 8 years ago we were promised the most open administration in history, but instead we get “chance” meetings on airport tarmac, Friday afternoon votes, clandestine decisions made at the last moment, and utter childish buffoonery from House Democrats singing songs and roasting s’mores on the House floor in a sit-in/pajama party.
4. Yer dern right we fight tooth and nail for not only gun rights but all Constitutionally guaranteed rights-and yet they are gradually eroded. Wasn’t conservatives that came up with “free speech zones,” “hate speech,” and “political correctness,” all of which makes it hard to discuss some sensitive topics.
5. As to voting rights, that statement is flat out absurd. Protecting the sanctity of the “one person-one vote” concept is paramount to conservatives. Why is it that the party that so loves to have control over all aspects of American lives from shower rooms to light bulbs suddenly objects to having a voter prove he is who he says he is? There is only ONE logical reason to object to voter ID regulations, and that is because those who object wish to circumvent the one person-one vote concept.
6. Conservatives do love the Constitution, as written and properly amended. And they would love to see it strictly adhered to and enforced-PERIOD.
7. “Returning to the past” is so nebulous it doesn’t make sense. Conservatives certainly are not the ones kowtowing to a radical ideology emanating from the Middle East that would return the world to an earlier time. They are not the ones wanting to curtail the uses of natural resources without FIRST getting replacements fully up and running and as readily available so as to keep costs down for consumers.
8. Nope, wrong again. Seems it’s the Democrats, especially the Democrat president that has repeatedly implied and overtly downplayed that greatness for various reasons, almost as if he is ashamed of it. We are great, and we want to stay that way. “Apologizing” for long ago mistakes that cannot be corrected any more than Germany can “correct” the Holocaust, is specious and serves no one.
9. “They have been lied to by people with a vested interest in making them angry to keep them under control” is hardy what the conservatives have done. This nation, after 8 years under a liberal Democrat presidency is more divided now than it was at the height of the Bush years and the ill-advised Iraq war.
10. Ignore science? Conservatives? No one is “telling us” to ignore anything. We are thinkers who, when fed data that is incomplete, statistics that are “raw,” and are told computer models are “science,” question the “scientists.” And we are especially skeptical of those “scientists” who claim the “debate is over.” The fact is that even in regard to the most basic scientific axioms such as gravity, the debate is NEVER over. These same “scientists” who claim the debate is over now seem to be the ones denying biology by redefining mammalian “genders.”
11. How is it that the Koch Brothers are so evil, yet George Soros, labor unions and the Hollywood left, all of whom pump just as many billions of dollars into politics are pillars of goodness? How is a grassroots movement that wants lower taxes, less government intrusion and adherence to the Constitution so terrible and riot-inciting, hateful “grassroots” movements like BLM and Occupy whatever that further divide the nation’s citizens are so wonderful? Which side is it that is sending “grassroots” protesters out to disrupt presidential campaign gatherings? I would say Deltigar, by this point in his rant is quite clearly off the rails.
12. Deltigar is quite right, Trump is not the problem, and is just the tip of the iceberg. But that iceberg is not conservatism. In a nutshell, the problem is the trend today for both parties, but especially the Democrats, to overlook what is best for the country as a whole while concentrating on special interest groups. The Democrats have successfully created so many faux issues that have in turn divided the electorate where no divisiveness should be. From the war on women to climate change and income inequality, they have managed to make mountains out of flat, level ground, not even molehills. (There is no war on women in this country, climates have and always will change, with or without human input, and income inequality is inevitable and a good thing, not a bad thing.)
Interesting post. Lots of generalizations without substantive support. Why is it that when a Conservative posts similar (albeit from an opposing viewpoint) generalizations and fluff you are one of the first to denigrate their views as “desperate”, “intolerant”, “sexist” or, gasp, “racist”?
" lied to by people with a vested interest…" Fast and Furious, Benghazi come to mind.
“don’t care much about voting rights.” I firmly hold that every U.S. citizen should vote in elections. Considering the news reports and convictions of ineligible persons voting or eligible persons voting multiple times (same election and receiving accolades from the Democrats in Ohio after their early release from prison) are almost universally Democrats I have to agree with you that the existing voting laws need revamping.
Ah, the Constitution…don’t know your past hx, but, I took a solemn oath entering the Service to “Protect and preserve the Constitution”. My word means a great deal to me and as I remember it there was no expiration date on my oath or affirmation.. I desire that we interpret the Constitution in a traditional sense, rather than a daily re-writing of definitions as convenience or political winds dictate.
As far as the Koch brothers, I believe any influence they achieve is more than offset by George Soros and his empire of influence peddling.
Climate change (the recently re-branded Global Warming). Increasing evidence shows that the data sets were manipulated to achieve a desired end result…not very “scientific”.
I have a question for you. Given that the Earth is still emerging from the last ice age, warming is a fact that has happened, is happening and will happen…my question is simply: what power or authority gave you and the frenetic Warmists the right to decide where the Earth’s thermostat should be set?
A good case can be made that the goal of the alarmists is to make $$ through various mechanisms, carbon credits come to mind, and, ultimately, to gain increasing power over people’s ability to dissent or refute argument such as global warming, aka. climate change. I read where the Democrat Party wants to make it a party plank that “climate deniers” should be silenced by the force of Law. Rather draconian response under the free speech guaranteed in the First Amendment…don’t cha’ think

How is one person’s offense so more important that it overrules another person’s or group’s rights?

There’s a huge difference with the types for rights you’re arguing about. You’re arguing about the rights adults have that children aren’t mature enough for yet. However, EVERYONE has the RIGHT to live out the life that began for them once conceived! To have the RIGHT to breathe and experience LIFE just as much as YOU had the opportunity to experience! You’re comparing apples to oranges with how you’re describing rights!
God is also Just! Without justice you have nothing, and everyone can do JUST as they please because then in the end, well…we’ll just be forgiven, right? That’s not how it works!

All the LIbs are SOOOOOO worried that that the LBGT’s will have their rights violated by not being able to use the restroom of their choice. But I haven’t seen ONE Lib worried about the children that will be exposed to someone taking advantage of the situation…
And this is only ONE of many stories you can find that has happened because of this perversion!

Watch out for that black helicopter, is the tin foil hat helping?
We’re also talking talking about rights in our and other countries when you obey the laws vs breaking the laws. But as another Lib posted in here there’s seems to be no difference between the two. Sad that you are so sympathetic to the terrorists.
