Tolerance

A Denton, TX  JP is proving that the gay mafia won’t accept tolerance. They want and are demanding a full on kowtowing.  Anything less will cause nothing but more strife, so there is no reason to give any more.

TOLERATE

1:  to endure or resist the action of (as a drug or food) without serious side effects or discomfort; exhibit physiological tolerance for

2a :  to allow to be or to be done without prohibition, hindrance, or contradiction

b :  to put up with <learn to tolerate one another>

Note that none of that is anything like encouraging, celebrating, desiring, etc.  The very definition of tolerance is that you are willing to put up with it.  This JP is putting up with it, pure and simple.

“I went back in forth with it, and I made the decision that, for my constituents, if that is their desire — it doesn’t matter to me what a person’s sexual preference is, what their sexual orientation is. Regardless, they’re a human being and they deserve dignity and respect. If that’s the way that they want to live their life, that’s between them, their partner and either they believe in their God or not, that’s their choice,” DePiazza says.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the very definition of tolerance.  Keep it in mind, and note how often the left refuses to tolerate the right.

Katherine Franke, the director of the Public Rights/Private Conscience Project at Columbia University’s law school, says that what DePiazza is doing — specifically in making marriage seekers sign the letter — is probably unconstitutional.

“I think it’s an interesting innovation in trying to hold your nose and do your job by making everybody else hold your nose as well. It’s creative, but I don’t imagine it will stand up in court,” Franke says. “Even for a heterosexual couple that’s getting married and [DePiazza’s] not opposed to their marriage, the only way they can get married is to acknowledge that he doesn’t want to marry gay people. I could see straight people being offended.”

Franke is probably wrong.  There’s a quite a lot of inherent power in the judicial system for a judge to run his courtroom the way he sees fit.  Judges can tell you to shut up about anything they don’t want to hear, and that absolutely applies to back talk.  You don’t get to complain about the way a judge rules on an objection, you don’t get to bitch about prior rulings, and it follows that you don’t get to bitch about his policies on marriage declarations.

Judges have an inherent right to control their courtroom.  They can tell you what you can and cannot say, what you can and cannot wear, where you can and cannot sit, and so on.  Things that are absolutely protected in other places, like wearing shirts with slogans on them or carrying signs, can absolutely be prohibited by a judge within the walls of his courtroom.

Like it or not, this part will almost certainly stand.  The judges above him aren’t going to give up their right to control their courtrooms by making up some exception here that will later bite them in the ass.

Criminalizing Gay Marriage

So the gay mafia has succeeded in shoving gay marriage down the throats of America against it’s will.

Fine.

Expect to see a lot of gay people being thrown in jail in states like Oklahoma real soon.  Adultery can be illegal and often is — and you can bet now that gay people are going to be getting married, gay people are going to start going to jail for it.  And statutes are often written, like in Oklahoma, so that you can be guilty of adultery even if you aren’t married — because your sex partner was.

The Real Criticism of Bobby Jindal

Killing the Golden Goose

California has decided to finally kill off it’s legal porn industry by requiring goggles on porn stars. Not kidding.

I stressed legal, because when you cannot viably produce legal porn, porn will still be produced illegally.  We have over a century of alcohol, drug and prostitution prohibition to tell us how that works out.

If the law abiding can’t make porn, the criminals will.  When you get the criminals involved, the current protections for sex workers will disappear.  Set aside wage and contractual protection.  The same things we see in illegal prostitution will happen again.  Women will be forced into porn with violence.  They will be forced onto drugs, raped, beaten, under or unpaid, and abused in any other ways the criminals who will take over the industry can think of.

This is the end of legal porn.  If you support it, then you essentially support human trafficking and abuse of women.  This is why liberals disgust me.

Read Between the Lines

How many known terrorists are there in America that the FBI didn’t have the resources to keep up with this guy?

Federalize it

Al Sharpton wants a federal police force.

Remember after 9-11 when the dumbshit Democrats were saying, “you can’t professionalize unless you federalize”?

How did that work out with the TSA?

We aren’t falling for that okie-doke again.

 

You’ve Been Making White Russians Wrong

And so have I.

This is the traditional White Russian recipe:

Combine in a glass with ice:

  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part cream/half&half/milk (depending on taste)

Stir.

That’s the old recipe.

Here’s the rub.  Drinks with dairy or fruit juice that are not highballs (mixer with a single spirit) are traditionally shaken, not stirred.  There’s a good reason for this — it makes the drink colder, it combines the cloudy ingredients better, and in the case of dairy or egg, foams the drink.

Stirring has its own advantages for clear spirits.  It doesn’t knock volatiles out of the spirit or over-incorporate air (both things you don’t want to do with gin, especially.)

So why is a White Russian stirred?  Because a White Russian is a variation on a Black Russian, which does not have dairy. Since it is Kahlua and vodka, it should be stirred.  When they turned it into a White Russian, they kept stirring it.  It’s how the Dude makes his (although he also uses non-dairy creamer on occasion, a habit I simply cannot endorse, even as a Dudist.)

So I had to give it a try.  I shook a White Russian.  Everything I had suspected was confirmed.  Shaking this drink perfects it, and it was good to start with.  I would say that for this, cream is necessary.  If you do this with milk, you are robbing yourself.  Shake it with cream, vodka and Kahlua.  It gets frothy and thick like a milkshake (you need the cream for that — the same process as with whipped cream happens, as the proteins entangle with the fat, and you need cream for that to happen, not milk).  The volatiles that normally get contained in it are released, and it gets an amazing nose.  It’s milkshake cold, and absolutely wonderful.

My only mistake with it was that I served it traditionally, over rocks.  The milk solids in the cream coated the ice, which was unpleasantly ugly, and it didn’t really add any cold.  From now on, I’m shaking it and serving it up in a cocktail glass, like an Alexander.

And that is how you stop making White Russians wrong.
