  • Time for Trump Supporters to Deal With Some Harsh Reality

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    I’m a big believer in dealing with things from a standpoint of reality, and this ongoing vote “counting” in which the President’s leads in several key states just continue to steadily disappear is no different. There are several items of reality we all must acknowledge and deal with. So, let’s get started: The first reality is that we all knew this was going to happen months ago, and so did everyone in the Republican Party. Yet, the GOP obviously had no plan whatsoever in place to deal with this reality as Election Day dawned, and frankly, neither did the Trump...

  • Should The Fact That Trump Caught COVID Be A ‘Cautionary Tale’ For Team Reality?

    Have you ever noticed that when Democrats catch the ‘rona it’s a simple, unbiased news headline, but when it happens to Republicans it’s a “cautionary tale”? Consider this straightforward CNN headline last month about Ralph Northam: “Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam tests positive for Covid-19.” Now, compare that to when Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, a fan of freedom, personal responsibility, and getting things back to normal as soon as possible, tested positive: “This Republican governor refused a mask mandate. Then he got coronavirus.”
  • Mayor de Blasio forced to defend his grasp on reality of New York City

    The only reality Mayor de Blasio accepts is his own. A Post reporter asked Hizzoner during a virtual City Hall press briefing Wednesday about his tendency to challenge the premise of reporters questions as factually inaccurate instead of answering them. “Do you think that maybe you simply have a very different perception of reality in this city than most New Yorkers?” The Post asked. “No. I think I have a perception of life in this city because I’ve spent so much time with my fellow New Yorkers,” the mayor answered. “If I think something’s not factually correct or a misinterpretation...

    Billie Winner-Davis doesn't get it, or maybe she does. How can Paul Manafort, chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, get compassionate release from prison — years before his slated release, after lying about his dealings with Russian intelligence assets — while someone who leaked a report about Moscow's efforts to interfere in elections, like her daughter, languish behind bars? And whatever happened to all of those people who used to champion the cause of persecuted whistle-blowers? "As each chapter of this unfolds, I see just how corrupt our system really is, and I see just how powerless the average...
  • Huffington Post Criticizes Reality For Not Having As Many LGBTQ People As Netflix Shows

    The Babylon Bee ^ | June 9th, 2020
    "Reality is canceled," proclaimed a recent Huffington Post article, stating that the real world is officially "over" for not having as much LGBTQ representation as you see on Netflix shows. "Why is it that Netflix shows have 50% LGBTQ people, but real life only has a very small percentage of the population?" the article read. "If reality truly cared about LGBTQ people, it would insist on including billions and billions of them in its everyday programming." Reality was also criticized for insisting there are two biological sexes and that unborn babies are humans, further proving the author's point that...

    In yet another shocking twist, it's over between The Bachelor's Peter Weber and Madison Prewett. The couple, who had a dramatic reunion on the live finale of the ABC series earlier this week (after Weber's abrupt split from Hannah Ann Sluss) has broken up, both confirmed on Instagram Thursday. 'Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further,' the star of season 24 of the ABC show said on the site. 'Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that...
  • What It's Like to Get an Abortion in Georgia

    11/26/2019 4:01:19 PM PST · by spintreebob · 7 replies ^ | 11/25/19 | Kimberly Lawson
    Abortion access varies widely for people in different parts of the country. We're going state by state. Georgia made national headlines in May when Governor Brian Kemp signed into law a bill that would ban abortion after 6 weeks and define fetuses as people. While the law has been blocked as legal challenges proceed against it, the reality is that it's already difficult to get an abortion in the state. What Georgia state law says about abortion: People seeking abortions in Georgia face a number of restrictions. Abortions are prohibited after 20 weeks unless the pregnant person's life is in...
  • The Left-Right Divide Is About Reality Itself

    11/05/2019 3:49:26 AM PST · by Kaslin · 46 replies ^ | November 5, 2019 | Dennis Prager
    The left-right divide in America is, unfortunately, unbridgeable. There are three reasons. First, we are divided by our vision of what we want America to be. The right believes the founders' vision was brilliant and moral, that bourgeois middle-class values are superior to alternative value systems; that rights come from God, not man; and that the state must be as small as possible. The left (not liberals) shares none of those values. Second, we are divided by the means we use to achieve our vision. Given their different ends, left and right obviously differ on what means to use to...

    The United States is the freest, wealthiest, most tolerant society the world has ever known. Even today’s poor live lives undreamed of by royalty less than a century ago. Yet in what seems like a major disconnect from this reality, we have major politicians calling for a transformation of society. Why is this? Well, other than pandering for votes and power, which is a large part of it, there is another more basic and more dangerous process at work. And that is success breeds failure. This is a common and accurate theme in management thinking. Success breeds complacency. Success can...

    Todd Chrisley is accused of trying to extort his own daughter with a sex tape, just a month before he and his wife were charged with federal tax evasion and bank fraud. Lindsie Chrisley reportedly told police her father tried extorting her to get her to lie about his tax issues as he faces potentially decades in prison. She has distanced herself from her family after father Todd, 51, and stepmother Julie, 48, were arrested Wednesday and appeared in court in Atlanta, Georgia, for 12 counts of bank fraud and federal tax evasion. The couple could face up to 30...

    When personal trainer Jack Fowler locked lips with aspiring actress Georgia Steel on Love Island, the torrid kiss summed up everything that has made the show a guilty pleasure for millions. He was shamelessly cheating on Laura Anderson, another contestant – and Laura’s supposed friendship with Georgia was shattered in an instant. But the deception went far further than a single broken heart. For the passionate embrace in last year’s series is one of many instances of TV fakery in the supposed reality show, according to whistleblowers who have spoken to The Mail on Sunday. ITV acknowledge the show is...

    Hannah Brown isn’t here for slut-shaming. Throughout her season of The Bachelorette, the former pageant queen has openly discussed her sex life — and even boldly declared “I have had sex, and Jesus still loves me” while sending contestant Luke Parker packing — but she has received backlash on social media for the decision.

    Last month, I compared the state of Democrat political affairs to the 1998 film The Truman Show. Democrats have created for their voters a world where truth and reality are supplanted by fantasy and make-believe. Thanks to the Democrats, last week's congressional immigration hearing was the embodiment of the "Truman Show" concept. Our Customs and Border Protection agents, in addition to Tom Homan, former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, were shouted at, impugned, disrespected, and attacked ad hominem. Every U.S. representative and U.S. senator takes the following Oath of Office: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will...

    Reality show phenomenon Love Island officially debuted in the US on Tuesday night – and one islander was quick to cause a stir. Now in its fifth season in Britain, the US version started by following 11 single guys and girls on their quest for true love in a stunning beach-front abode in Fiji, a journey promised to be filled with bust-ups, break-ups and raunchy run-ins. The first episode appeared to captivate and enrage its audience in equal measure when it cut to a commercial break just as it reached a dramatic conclusion - and returned moments later purely to...

    American Thinker ^ | 5/23/2019 | John Conlin
    Today, socialism is making a renewed push in the U.S. and has found a willing consumer among both the young and older bleeding hearts. Whether they understand what it would truly mean to become an socialist country is meaningless. They are behind it 100%. Conservatives are losing this argument, as they have for decades, because they argue from a false position. Even conservatives talk about having this or that political opinion as if it is something you can just personally chose; that it needn’t be tethered to any other reality. Kind of like which tastes better, chicken or pork… decent...

    Metallicman ^ | 18APR19 | Editorial Staff
    One of the reasons why humans are handicapped in our understanding of reality is because of our reliance on the “scientific method”. It is a system based on observation. The problem with this method is that our understanding of reality is corrupted by the limits imposed by observation. Indeed, as well well know, it is the perception of the observer that changes our reality. This is a well understood rule. If you the reader, don’t “get it”, then you need to study quantum mechanics 101. For in the last two decades the entire foundation of our understanding of reality has...

    A young woman brought her fiancé home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother told the girl's father to find out about the young man. The father invited the fiancé to his study for a talk."So, what are your plans?" the father asked the young man. A "I am a biblical scholar," he replied. "A biblical scholar, hmmm?" the father said. "Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in?" "I will study," the young man replied, "and God will provide for us." "And how will you buy her a beautiful...

    I recently posted the following meme and was asked to expand: How to survive a narcissist: Reality is what it is. Not what the narcissist claims it is. Objectivity trumps toxic. My point: You’re less subject to narcissists or other toxic people if you’re confident and competent in the use of your own objective, reasoning mind. Consider the narcissists in our government. They want us to believe we cannot exist without them. They want us to believe we are helpless, perpetually vulnerable people who cannot possibly cope — without their stupid, economy-thrashing, initiative-killing, Constitution-bashing programs. If you’re confident in your...
