There will be war!
Got to ramp up the scare tactics

He says the "Great Replacement Myth".  What about the "Great Switch" myth where all the racist Southern Democrats suddenly switched parties at some point?  At least conservative conspiracy theories have some facts at the core.

The "Great Replacement Myth" is obviously true.  Of course the government is doing it best to make white people a minority as quickly as possible.  Non-westerners are far more tolerant of abusive, corrupt and authoritarian governments than western whites.  Our government elites wants a population that will never vote it out of power.  Or be able to overthrow it with arms for that matter.

They have managed such division, and torqued up their own true believers SO much that they're going to NEED a conflict if they are to maintain any semblance of control.

Maybe there are straights(so is spaghetti until it gets wet) that get the vapors over it. Me, I am just so tired of it. Who cares where you stick mr. winky, or your lack thereof, or pending removal. Just don't tell about it. Yes, your hairstyle is both stunning and brave. Could you now get my very simple order correct?

I give a damn because the collective mass of sexual immorality (heterosexual and homosexual) has rotted our whole society,.  Over 40% of all kids are bastards.  The media has become a freak show.  I saw a freaking tranny on stripper pole on an advertisement the other day.  Sexual perversion is being preached to children in the schools, the comic books, and TV.  It is being progandized by most major companies and almost every education institution.  The government glorifies perversion publicly. If you disagree, you are an evil bigot who should be fired, shunned and shamed, and your religion is monstrous.

I want to raise my children to be Christians, get married to actual members of the opposite sex, stay married, and have their own legitimate children.  Not end up as castrated, perverted freaks.

We will see what most people think about all that in November (as far as politics is concerned).  Personally I think most people see this stuff, can't do anything about it, and just go about their lives.  However, I think we are seeing some push back ramping up.  We will see where that goes.

Marvel Comics and DC Comics are owned by Disney and sales numbers are way, way down from even 20 years ago.  Most of the transitional entertainment venues are owned by a few leftists corporations or groups.  IMO, the best thing we can do is cut those off and look for other avenues for entertainment to fund.  Daily Wire is trying to set up an alternative with the movies they are making.  I think we are seeing the beginning of push back.  Marvel and DC comics sales numbers are extremely low compared to decades ago.  Most people don't like what the leftist writers are doing.  If you follow YoungRippa59 on Youtube, he is working to start a new comic book publishing company with new heroes and stories.  I think he is getting ready to roll it out soon. 

Locally, I interested to see what comes up in the Texas Legislature next Spring.  I wouldn't be surprised to see some laws against drag shows come up along with sex change medication/surgery for minors.  Some will push gun control due to Uvalde, but I don't expect that to go anywhere.  I am curious if there will be more push to encourage more teachers to be armed.

And I wonder at this point how much of that was long term deliberate.

Was listening to a piece yesterday about Alfred Kinsey.  He was quite a nasty piece of work.

For a few, it was deliberate.  But when you talk about vices, people are naturally tempted by those things.  If fewer people learn to control their vices, things will eventually go downhill on their own.

ABC News said the dems will keep the house and gain up to 4 seats in the senate.
But then deleted the tweet for some reason

Not an "oopsie" as was stated in the article.  Someone somewhere on the Dem side let something slip.  There's going to be a lot of folks on the right disappointed when the expected "Red Tsunami" turns out to be a red wavelet, or even a blue wavelet.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Democrats only have an 11 vote majority currently plus 6 vacancies.  I would believe the House would switch before the Senate.  I would prefer to hear from a pollster who is looking at the races seat by seat.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn booed by crowd at state GOP convention while negotiating gun control bill
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/texas-sen-cornyn-booed-crowd-state-gop-convention-negotiating-gun-control-bill

Quote
Texas Sen. John Cornyn got booed by attendees at the state's GOP convention on Friday over his involvement in negotiating a bipartisan bill focused on gun reform and mental healthcare after recent mass shootings in America.
Video in the link. 

Uvalde happened after the primary vote so he is the candidate in November.  I have no idea who is running against Cornyn in November.  That says something.  If it was someone halfway well known, they might have a shot at winning.  At this point, I think I will skip that race when I go through the ballot. 

I hope the other GOP Senate races look better, but I don't know who is up for election and where.  Only need a couple to get the majority.  More would be better so the squishes aren't in control.
