#1 Ah yes, the death of conservatism. Only slightly out of context, but what the hell. At least the author has it right in the closing para:

“Muzzies” are primitive, ignorant goat-buggerers worthy only of being on the other side of walls, the business end of guns, and the receiving end of bombs..... You earn your neocon bones by being uncompromising in attitude and language regarding the “Muslim problem.”

#2 Two kinds of Republicans.

One type doesn't mind the giant bloated bureaucracy, just thinks they should run it because they can do a better job than Democrats. They don't care if leviathan exists. They've made the choice that rights are trumped by the appearance of compassion and civility - said appearance run slightly better than Democrats might do so.

The other type understands that half the agencies in government need to be swept away summarily because they either do nothing of authentic worth or actually damage the ability of the private sector to produce. And that if this isn't done - very, very soon - the point of no return will be upon us. And that this must be done without regard to the financial damage it will do to the fired hacks.

And that civility, while nice, will never be reciprocated by leviathan.

Choose wisely.

#3 What is interesting is the depth of dislike or outright rejection of many on the right of democracy. Oh, they love the trappings and rituals, but actual democracy seems to either frighten them or disgusts them. In that they are no different than the authoritarians on the left. "It's all too important to leave to the 'mob'." We must have order here!

It's all about power (and theater).

#4 Funny but it seems to me we are seeing the same thing on the dem side. Not so much in the press but more so with the voters in the party. The gop will rally around trump when he wins, however begrudgingly. Sort of like the eels and Obama. However divided the goo it, they are nothing compared to the dems. The dems are radicalized, in a near fascist state. They are inciting violence and hate over every topic. There is zero rational discourse with the people of that party. When Hillary wins the party will rally to her, the Bernie supporters-voters, will not. They will feel cheated and played by a broken system. They will not support her, some might cross over, some will take their radicalization to the next violent level. Understand the occupy socialist communist movement has legs, when suppressed the socialist movement becomes violent. This election will be interesting.

#8 I'd say short lived urban riots if they call forth the militia rather than the National Guard. "You mean this is real?"

#9 I've said it before: That word "conservative" seems to mean different things to different people. Guys like Jeb Bush calling himself conservative when he's willing to leave our borders undefended makes no sense to me.

Trump doesn't exactly fit into my concept of a true conservative, especially on the social issues, but nobody else seems to understand that American these days is in a serious state of decline.

As for Lewandowski, grabbing that girl's arm was perhaps not heroic but it was his job. What a novel concept it is for a guy to understand what his job is and then actually do it.

#10 A Republican split maybe, but no conservative supports Trump.

#11 The Dems will try to paint Trump as racist against Blacks but I don't think it has really been sticking. They've got the Black Lives Matter but I'm not sure about the bulk of African Americans. A lot of blacks have been hit by the same economic issues the poor whites have been hit by. It will be an interesting campaign.

#12 The "conservative" Media are showing their true colours now. Not conservative at the core, but pandering to whatever gets them ratings. Just like the Progressives they used to hammer for being hypocritical. Coulter, Hannity, Falwell, and even Limbaugh fall into this bunch who want ratings over all else. The mask is off. And for the audiences, so are the blinders.
