Veterans Spat Upon By University of Florida Fraternity Students

Story.

Facebook statement from the University of Florida.

Statement from Zeta Beta Tau fraternity.

To all my fellow veterans: Mark down the date of the incident so that the next time some leftist prick tries to claim that the Left is patriotic and doesn't do such things (and didn't do them after Vietnam), you can point them to this story.

Let Me Draw Your Attention...

...to the sidebar of my blog, where Marko Kloos's new Frontlines novel, Angles of Attack, is available for sale at Amazon. If it's as good as his first two novels in the series, it should be good indeed. It's a shame that the second one got caught in the crossfire between Social Justice Bullies and Sad Puppies, but that is the Balkanized country we find ourselves in.

With a First Line Like That...

...there's no need to go further:

Wearing perfectly pressed trousers and shiny boots, Captain Maddox of Star Watch Intelligence flexed his bare chest. Muscles like strings of steel writhed upon his lean frame. He gripped a viper stick, swishing it back and forth, so the spectators murmured uneasily.

Luckily I didn't shell out any money for this (presumably) stinkeroo, but borrowed using Amazon's free Kindle lending library. For those of you who might wish to give it a try, it's called The Lost Starship by Vaughn Heppner.

The Title Is Deceptive

Greenfield calls it "The Death of the Left," but more properly it should be called "The Death Brought By the Left."

Sample:

Imagine a future in which the left wins permanently. Just picture Hillary Clinton and then Elizabeth Warren and finally Bernie Sanders kept alive in the Oval Office by electricity and fetal stem cells from babies. Imagine the country run like the DMV. Imagine it divided between the politically connected and the poor. Imagine everyone else giving up and surviving on the black market. Imagine Social Justice becoming a slogan that everyone is forced to repeat, but that no one understands.

And then the Chinese will come along to take advantage of the cheap labor.


Read the whole thing, as the saying goes.

Quote of the Day

" In the 800 years since the ratification of Magna Carta, we have not managed to come up with a political solution that does not in the end present us with a choice between servility and revolution. The Left, being schizophrenic, wants revolution and servility simultaneously: smashing store windows on Saturday night, cashing a welfare check on Monday."

Found here.

Headline of the Day

"British expat found dumped at bottom of a well may have been defending his vegetable garden from a leek thief, say French police."

Sorry, Lassie, If It Comes Down To Me Or You...

...you're gonna die.

"Killingsworth Pest Control Under Fire For Telling Employees To Run Over Stray Dogs."

I understand what this man is saying, and I agree with it. There are times when you are driving that you can be killed if you swerve or brake to avoid hitting an animal. Over on the coast near Southport, NC, is a country road with deep drainage canals on either side of the road - - to swerve off the road means your car will go into the water and sink, and you'll very likely die. On that road one evening I cautioned my girlfriend, who was driving, about the necessity of hitting an animal in that situation rather than swerving and going into the ditches. "If it's a choice between Bambi and the ditch, Bambi has to die," I told her. Sure enough, just a few minutes later Rocky Raccoon ran into the road - - the car ahead of us hit Rocky, and, to her credit, so did my girlfriend.

Does this mean that you callously hit any stray dog in the road? Not at all. But if you're driving and an animal enters the road and the only option is to hit it to avoid the possibility of death to the driver and passengers, the animal must be hit.

Meanwhile, At the Hugo Award Nominations...

...there is wailing and gnashing of teeth, because many Sad Puppies are nominated for Hugo Awards.

And the leftist gatekeepers who have viewed the Hugos as their own hunting preserve for many years now are infuriated that we are poaching on their land. Tough shit.

Good luck to the Puppies, and the non-Puppies who are also deserving, such as Marko Kloos.
