“At some point, the American public is going to revolt against the nanny state and the leftward march of this president. I don’t know when the tipping point will come, but I believe it will come soon. Why? Because the left wants: The government to explode; to pay everyone; to hire everyone; they believe that money grows on trees; the earth is flat; the industrial age, factory-style government is a cool new thing; debts don’t have to be repaid; people of faith are ignorant and uneducated; unborn babies don’t matter; pornography is fine; traditional marriage is discriminatory; 32 oz. sodas are evil; red meat should be rationed; rich people are evil unless they are from Hollywood or are liberal Democrats; the Israelis are unreasonable; trans-fat must be stopped; kids trapped in failing schools should be patient; wild weather is a new thing; moral standards are passé; government run health care is high quality; the IRS should violate our constitutional rights; reporters should be spied on; Benghazi was handled well; the Second Amendment is outdated; and the First one has some problems too. Their philosophy does not work and it got our nation into the mess it’s in.” – Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, writing for Politico.

The New Nazis:
Vladimir Putin’s Russia continues its decline into third world dictatorship and despotism today with the passage of legislation in the lower house (the State Duma) which bans the public display of anything pro-gay, including words.
The law would also permit the government to jail gay foreigners for up to two weeks before throwing them out of the country.
In true Soviet fashion, the legislation passed unanimously, 436-0. And the bill has widespread support in the Federation Council, where it goes next. Putin is then expected to sign it.
Per the WSJ, the law will literally make it a crime to even speak in defense of gay rights, or to say that gay relationships are equal to straight ones.
As part of its downward spiral into irrelevancy since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Putin’s Russia is doing the usual striking out at minorities that Russia, and most dictatorships and authoritarian states, are famous for. In the past it was Jews, now it’s gay people.
“Anyone who plans a vacation in Russia should have their head examined. Same goes for business investment. Russia is clearly not a democracy, nor is it a developed country. But worse, these constant, and increasing, spasms of intolerance only go to show what a backwards and dangerous place Russia has become once again.
And anyone who attends the 2014 Olympics in Russia, that already have been marred by Russia’s, and the IOC’s anti-gay prejudice, should have their head examined.”
