Some people are saying that SJWs are an only an "American thing" because Americans only care about themselves and their own country and know nothing about "the real world". There's one blog I've followed that progressively became anti-American and comments on our "dysfunctional country" as an outsider. 1/2

    This is a growing trend that I’ve been noticing more often. “Why can’t America be like it’s better, Canada?” Or “why can’t America get with the times and be more like Sweden?” Or “why is America so racist/capitalist/American?” America and American seem to be becoming dirty words both by American SJWs and spectators from the outside that most of the time have either been here briefly or haven’t at all. They especially complain that Tumblr is “America centric”. 2/2

    Have you ever heard the poet, Alexander Pope’s quote that reads, “A little bit of learning is a dangerous thing”?  This is a great example of where it would apply.

    SJWs are a very naive and ignorant crowd that base about 10% of their knowledge on some obscure source material and the other 90% on pure emotional rationale.  They pluck some silly reference from a leftwing website about one of these countries like Sweden or Canada and then run with it to make their emotional argument.  ”Canada has free healthcare…why can’t the US has free healthcare too?  People are being turned away from healthcare because they’re poor here!  Why don’t you care about poor people!?"  None of this statement is true, but that doesn’t matter.  They make a claim based on partial fact - Canadian health care is not free because it is funded through taxes; they follow it up with a total lie based on their claim - the poor are not turned away from hospitals in the US; and then they try to make an emotional appeal - you don’t like social medicine therefore you hate poor people.  It’s generally the same formula they use on most social issues.

    The only defense is attempting to correct them on the truth of the topic.  However, SJWs hate to be educated.  They rather live in a shallow pit of lies, then ever admit their emotional investment in a topic is based on an ill-conceived or misleading talking point they picked up on Facebook.

    Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
    and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on
    driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the
    rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
    If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in
    about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with
    enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is
    boiling hot as well.

    Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the
    gutter, etc.

    Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little
    water. A small piece of foil.
    Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!!

    No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

    Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed
    of this.

    Snopes confirms.

    Rayhaneh Jabbari is sentenced to hang for killing her rapist in self defense in Iran. She is now 26 years old and has been in Tehran’s dreaded Evin prison since 2007. The petition for her release can be found here: http://bit.ly/1h7EP4D



    It needs 100,000, and only has 8,000 as it stands. 



    Verified that her execution is still pending and that international protest and eyes on her case has helped post-pone it from late September to date indeterminate.

    Are you surprised? Islamic Nations are horrible.

    If you like your healthc…..ah, never mind.

    Oh, and remember this when you vote in the upcoming election: Republicans know that running against Obamacare is a winner for them. So they have no incentive to actually try and defund or repeal it. If they were actually successful in somehow getting rid of it, they could no longer run against it to get elected. Remember to only vote for those who are completely committed to defeating this terrible law and will fight it at every turn.

    Over 22,000 Coloradoans have had their health insurance canceled by Obamacare in the past month — and 200,000 are slated to be shut down in 2015, the state insurance department announced Friday.

    The Colorado Division of Insurance wrote to state Senate Republicans Friday, notifying them that five more insurance carriers have ended plans for 18,783 more Coloradoans in just the last month. By far, the most canceled plans will come from Humana Insurance Company and Humana Health Plan.

    That brings the state’s Obamacare total to almost 340,000 canceled plans, according to Republican Rep. Cory Gardner, who’s in a tight race for Senate with incumbent Democrat Sen. Mark Udall.

    “Coloradoans continue to pay the price for Senator Udall’s broken promise,” Gardner said in a statement Friday. “It’s unfortunate that Senator Udall has been so eager to please President Obama that he has forgotten thousands of Coloradoans across our state.”

    Widespread Obamacare cancellations have been a political loser for Obamacare-supporters across the country, but the issue is especially fraught in Colorado.
