Hard Limits and Electric Cars
by Davis Aurini
Going Green is a fatal conceit. It doesn’t matter if you:
- Run all of your personal devices off of intermittent solar and wind,
- grow your own crops and compost the left-overs,
- reduce your consumption of unnecesary consumerist garbage,
- and learn to fix your own car/plumbing/electrical wires…
…you still haven’t changed the system.
Living off the grid is a wonderfully foolish and tragically heroic thing to do – it certainly increases your anti-fragility – but “Going Green”, if it means anything at all, involves a return to pre-Industrial levels of energy consumption. Grass huts and a pointy stick. The real cost of civilization isn’t the energy you consume, it’s the energy that the mining company consumes – and a mining company cannot afford to have work-stoppages due to the intermittency of solar power, not and remain profitable, the banking/communication industry cannot afford interruptions to their data-transfer, and we can’t afford to feed everybody on home-grown plots of land.
Civilization is like a car going up a steep hill; you can argue that 140 km/h is needlessly wasteful, but if you try and climb the hill at 60 your engine is going to stall. True, you can shift to a lower gear, but in the case of civilization that lower gear is a return to 1700.
Let’s hope the road doesn’t get really steep any time soon; we might have to go back to the old-ways of doing things.

This was originally penned and posted on November 6, AD 2011. This is interesting because this was the Sunday after MF Global happened. It was still thought at this time that Corzine had stolen *only* a few hundred million dollars – not $1.6 billion, nor had it yet occurred to anyone that NO ONE would be held accountable for any of this. PFG Best hadn’t yet happened. The Sentinel Ruling hadn’t happened. The ObamaCare abortion and contraception mandates had not yet happened. Benghazi hadn’t happened. The IRS scandal hadn’t happened. And this was 10 days before I shut down Barnhardt Capital Management.
My decision has been confirmed as correct so many times over that there is no longer any question associated with it. And now, ladies and gentlemen, is the hour in which the full and hideous scope of the horror that dares call itself “modern, Western Christianity” is revealed. After announcing my Federal tax strike, I have been overrun with sickening, nauseating email after email telling me that for me to enjoin a tax strike is “immoral”, “unchristian”, “contrary to scripture”, “pointless”, “a waste” and all the rest. To everyone who has sent such an email, and you know who you are, there are not words to express the depth of my disgust. I am ashamed – yes ASHAMED – of every single one of you. Your cowardice, your failure to grasp even the most rudimentary concepts of Christianity, starting first and foremost with the First Commandment, but most especially the shallowness of your discernment, is repellant to behold. Super-fun Rockband church and Pastor Jason, and the Marxist-homosexualist infiltrated Novus Ordo Catholic parishes with Father Liza-Judy and their bee-ess six-minute sermons about ABSOLUTELY NOTHING have cleared the battlefield for satan in a war of attrition that would make William Tecumseh Sherman blush with shame.
And let’s not forget that other tool of satan which has sent every other clergyman pecker-down in the dirt to lick the hooves of the federal government, wet with the liquid manure of political correctness and the running blood of the unborn, in utter submission: the 501(c) exemption.
Here’s your catechetics and civics lesson for the week.
“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” is NOT a release from the First Commandment.
I had one guy email me and tell me that Jesus will not hold any of us responsible for any of the abortions in this country because we JUST HAVE to pay taxes and we have absolutely no choice in the matter. Bullshit. First, what the hell do you think is happening right now? Boys and girls, you are going to be held to account for sitting by and subsidizing the holocaust of the preborn. This country is being brought down as punishment for the genocide that every one of us is partially responsible for.
Secondly, apparently you all have been brainwashed into believing that the I.R. fricking-S is the most powerful entity in the universe, and that being condemned by the IRS is the worst and most permanent fate in the universe and in the realm of humanity. In other words, YOU IDIOTS WORSHIP THE I.R.S. ABOVE GOD. YOU FEAR THE I.R.S., BUT DO NOT FEAR GOD, HIS JUDGEMENT OR HIS WRATH IN THE SLIGHTEST. And you call yourselves Christian? Really?
Now let’s think logically. The words, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s; and render unto the Lord that which is the Lord’s” have as a direct corollary the asking of a question. What is that question? Come on. Think. You can do this.
The question is, what rightfully belongs to Caesar and what rightfully belongs to God? The God part is easy. EVERYTHING belongs to God. Uh-oh. Now we have a mathematical conundrum, don’t we? If we believe in God, and we believe in the First Commandment, then “Caesar” is truly OWED nothing. We can CONSENT to pay taxes in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity and freedom, but only if those four specific ends are served by our taxes.
Let’s go through each of the four:
Barack Obama is a usurper. He is constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of the presidency, and he knows this, the entire Congress knows this, the entire upper-echelon of the military knows this, the entire intelligence community knows this, and the SCOTUS knows this. Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States, who is in a state of open, declared war upon it, its constitution and its people. This is the absence of truth. We are being “led” by a human lie, backed by an entire government of oath-breaking liars. Therefore, the government is illegitimate and has forfeited its licitness.
The Rule of Law is effectively dead. From the presence of Obama himself in the White House, to the lawless Department of Justice, to Fast & Furious, to Solyndra, to the unconstitutional “czars” and “executive orders”, to the Federal Reserve, this is a society ruled by a government of men, not laws. When government is ruled by men and not laws, the determining criterion of how government relates to people becomes brute force of arms and violent coercion, and not transcendent truth. We are utterly deprived of justice by the government itself, and thus the federal government has forfeited its legitimacy. (Note: Remember that when this was originally written, the full knowledge and scope of the financial market lawlessness was not yet known, much less any of the crimes that have occurred or been exposed since November of ARSH 2011. MF Global had happened only six days earlier.)
The government is inciting both race-centered, age-centered and class-based antagonism and violence. In declaring pre-born children non-human, a genocide has been legally sanctioned that has cost 50 million lives AND COUNTING. ObamaCare is poised to exterminate the elderly by determining that their lives are not worth living. The government is consciously and expressly trying to break down solidarity amongst citizens along race and class lines, including the literal dissolving of the territorial borders of the nation, and in that action it forfeits its legitimacy.
From ObamaCare, to the TSA, to the forced acceptance of sexual perversions, to forced “political correctness”, to the overt support of Sharia law and muslim sedition, to the destruction of the Free Exercise and Equal Protection clauses, this government is working consciously and overtly against fundamental human freedom, and has thus forfeited its legitimacy.
1-2-3-4. I don’t owe Caesar a damn thing, and it is now to the point where the continued subsidizing of this utterly lawless and illegitimate government puts me in violaton of the
First Commandment (I AM the LORD thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before me.) by forcing me to break God’s Law – the Natural Law – in order to follow the laws of the state; the…

Obama Thinks mooslims are Part of Our National Fabric? What a Delusional, Christian Hating, Steaming Piece of Horse Shit!
As Christians Are Purged and Murdered, Obama Stands by the Muslims by Pretending They Helped Build the “Very Fabric” of America
He did say he would “stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The winds couldn’t get much uglier than they are now. Enabled by Obama’s withdrawal of US forces from Iraq, the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS) is purging the region of Christians:
Iraqi Christians are begging for help from the civilized world after Mosul, the northern city where they have lived and worshiped for 2,000 years, was purged of non-Muslims by ISIS, the jihadist terror group that claims to have established its own nation in the region.
Assyrian Christians, including Chaldean and Syriac Catholics, Syriac Orthodox and followers of the Assyrian Church of the East have roots in present day Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran that stretch back to the time of Jesus Christ. While they have long been a minority and have faced persecution in the past, they had never been driven completely from their homes as has happened in Mosul under ISIS. When the terror group ordered all to convert to Islam, pay a religious tax or face execution, many chose another option: flight.
Hopelessly outnumbered, they are doomed without a champion to defend them. Their deaths at Muslim hands will not be pleasant ones. Although the Islamophilic liberal media doesn’t like to talk about it, ISIS has been crucifying Christians.
At least France is offering asylum to Christians fleeing ISIS.
Meanwhile, here’s the response from the leader of the most powerful Christian nation. From Obama’s official statement in honor of the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Fitr:
“In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”
Muslims are and have always been a tiny unassimilated minority in American culture. Try to name a widely known American Muslim who has made a positive contribution to this nation, who isn’t a pernicious anti-American radical, or who lived before Louis Farrakhan.
Yet they helped build the very fabric of this nation?
Obama isn’t just an ideologue. He is certifiably delusional.
We do have a history with Islam that goes way back. We went to war with the Muslim Barbary Pirates shortly after our founding. That’s where the reference to “the shores of Tripoli” comes from in the Marines’ Hymn.
The only major Muslim contribution to American history came on September 11, 2001. You may remember it, even if the media doesn’t.
It’s easy to see why 72% of American Muslims approve of Obama, in stark contrast to Christians.
What sort of sickness caused people to vote for this freak only a few years after 9/11?

The NRA is supporting moderate [i.e., liberal] Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander in his primary against Tea Party challenger Joe Carr, despite Alexander’s poor track record on gun issues in Congress. …
Alexander sided with Democrats when gun rights were on the line in 2013. When Rand Paul tried to lead a Republican filibuster of the Obama’s background check bill, Sen. Alexander joined Democrats and provided a crucial vote to allow debate. He also voted to confirm Obama’s gun-grabbing Attorney General, Eric Holder.
In contrast, Gun Owners of America endorses Carr, whose commitment to gun rights appears much more solid.
This is far from the first time that the NRA has chosen to support a moderate Republican with a weak record on guns over a more worthy conservative challenger. The group endorsed several moderate candidates in 2014 including Mitch McConnell, Mike Simpson and Thad Cochran.
Like Alexander, Mitch McConnell won the NRA’s support despite having a history of weakness on gun issues.
To have any weight to throw around in Washington, you have to be big. Unfortunately, the bigger you are, the more corrupted you become. Overall the NRA is still a force for good, but if we don’t keep an eye on it, it might not always be.
Islam is an evil political system.
There is no such thing as “islamic extremism” versus “moderate islam” any more than there was a “moderate Nazism”.
To understand this truism, one need only replace contemporary commentary or reportage on islam with the words “Nazism” and “Third Reich” to understand the abject imbecility of the entire notion of a “moderate” islam. Nope. The islamic political system, like Nazism, must be exterminated from the face of the earth – not merely contained, not merely subjugated. Exterminated.

And if I hang out with physically attractive women (which Beyonce actually is when she isn’t dressed like a nickel whore, which is never), then I must be a physically attractive woman too! And all that matters is that I’m popular, rich and that people tell me I’m pretty.

Detroit: Where expecting people to pay their bills is “racist.”
Not only has the Obama Regime refused to lift a finger to stop the massive invasion pouring across our southern border, he has spent our money to distribute the invaders and the diseases they carry throughout the country. But that wasn’t enough. Now he wants to spare them the travails of travel through Mexico by flying them up — again at our expense — directly from Central America. All he has to do to sell this to cretins is declare the lawless welfare colonists to be “refugees.”
The New York Times does its best to spin this scheme as anything but treasonous:
Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.
Migrants? They are entering our country in violation of our laws in order to take what belongs to us via the welfare apparatus. They are invaders, not migrants. The claim that making the invasion risk-free and convenient by flying them up from Honduras will “stem the tide” is so far beyond preposterous that I can’t get my jaw to close.
Of course the plan is to inflict this through executive action. Few who have to face voters again will be likely to back a plan so blatantly inimical to American interests, so it would never get through Congress.
How do they figure the colonists are “refugees” worthy of skipping the line in front of legitimate immigrants who might actually contribute to the American economy? After all, violence in Central America, a ubiquitous feature of that savage, backward land, is actually down lately. The Slimes explains:
Many of the children, particularly in Honduras, are believed to be fleeing dangerous street gangs, which forcibly recruit members and extort home and business owners. The United Nations estimates that 70,000 gang members operate in the three nations.
Got that? By importing thousands upon thousands of “children” of all ages, some of whom have already committed murder and are covered in gang tattoos, into American neighborhoods that already are or will soon become gang-infested slums, we are saving them from these very gangs. No wonder liberals glow with such self-satisfied righteousness.
If “successful” in Honduras, the program will be expanded to El Salvador and Guatemala as well.
Our rulers are almost ready to discard the pretense that this is all about children:
According to the draft, the administration is considering opening the program to people under 21. It also suggested offering entry on emergency humanitarian grounds — known as humanitarian parole — to some of the applicants who did not qualify for refugee status.
By “people under 21,” they mean “people who could conceivably pass for under 21.” Undocumented Democrats tend not to have any documentation that would prove when they were born. If you could get carded at the liquor store, you qualify as a child. If not, you get in on “emergency humanitarian grounds.”
By the way, refugees officially qualify for public assistance as soon as they touch American soil. Not that illegal aliens have any trouble collecting the loot that lures them here.
Imagine if Obama had been president in 1941. To spare the Japanese the trouble of having to cross the Pacific on their own, he would be flying them over at our expense to take over our country.
But there is a difference between the current invasion and the one that never happened from imperial Japan. Eventually, we would have cast off Japanese conquerors and kicked them out of our country. We will never cast off our Third World welfare overlords, because given the open borders and their birth rates, they will soon outnumber us. It won’t be our country; it will be theirs. We will subsist in it merely to serve as their slaves, working so that the government can “redistribute” the wealth we create onto their EBT cards, in return for their votes.
The scale of the treason we are witnessing dwarfs anything Vidkun Quisling was accused of. Yet there is virtually no resistance.

The Harsh Dogma of Liberalism: Gays and Abortion.
If you want to prove you don’t hate gays, all you have to do is worship at their feet.
By Matt Walsh
I have never in my life encountered a religion as oppressive, cold, and stiff as Progressivism. I’ve never known a faith more eager to burn heretics at the stake. Even a fundamentalist Iranian Muslim would flinch if he came face to face with a western liberal’s rigid dogmatism. I imagine that even a Saudi Arabian Islamic cleric would take one look at how American left wingers react when anyone deviates ever so slightly from their established orthodoxy, and say to himself, “man, these people REALLY need to chill.”
The Cult of Leftism has many tenets, and it demands full compliance with all of them, but nothing in its creed compares to the sanctity of their two great sacraments: child murder and sodomy. You must not question these, but tolerance alone will not be good enough. You must celebrate them, too. You must worship at their altar. You must sing hallelujah at the mention of their names. You must fight for a society where infanticide and gay sex are awarded a protected and privileged position. When a man decides to kill babies for a living, you must call him a ‘health care provider’ and a ‘healer.’ When a man decides to announce to the world that he enjoys sex with other men, you must call him a ‘hero’ and a ‘pioneer.’ You must quite literally give him awards for his courage.
Nothing less will be allowed…
So I suppose my point here is simple: if you aren’t willing to become a liberal, you might as well finally stand up and condemn it. There is no middle ground anymore. There never was to begin with, but even the illusion is fading. Either fight for life, family, and Truth, or else join the ranks of the nihilists and hedonists. The distinction between the two sides is not a murky no-man’s land colored in hues of gray; it is a stark and sudden line in the concrete. You are either for truth or you are not.
Either/or, black or white, right or wrong. Sorry, there are only two options, and you have to choose one. Progressivism says that you are either with it or against it, and on that point I agree.
Way back in the olden thymes, I hired a homosexual. Of course, this was the olden thymes so there was no mention of it. If anyone discovered a homosexual, they were required to report them to the authorities. The homosexual was then shipped off to one of the rehabilitation centers run by Pat Robertson. If that did not “take” then they were shipped to the lavender plantations in the South operated by Oral Roberts, ironically enough. As a result no one ever spoke of homosexuals in public or private. The subject was banned.
Ok, that’s nonsense, but not too far from the official narrative being developed by the usual suspects. The airbrushing of history with regards to this topic is not going to end until the past fits the fantasy. Anyway, in my case the guy was flaming, so it was obvious he preferred the company of men. That and he mentioned it in his interview. He wanted to make sure it was not going to be an issue. I told him he’d have to figure that out for himself, but as long as he did his job he’d have no issue with me.
That was the last time I had any reason to discuss the matter with him. Some of the guys gave him grief, but he was used to it and handled it without help from me. As is always the case, he fell into a role that suited him and everyone else. The point being that in the olden thymes, homosexuals had to put up with some mild inconveniences, but nothing significant. More important, normal people did not go crazy around them. Other than some mild discomfort, normal people got along just fine with homosexuals in their ranks. We were indifferent towards them.
Today, people all over the world are going insane over homosexuals. Throughout the Middle East and Africa, otherwise normal people are going berserk and attacking homosexuals. Uganda, for example, just passed harsh laws against homosexuality. They did it despite stern warnings from Obama, so you know they must have gone mad. Of course, we all know how countries in the Middle East have gone bonkers over this. Iran was driven to such madness as to bring back stoning.
OK, I’m kidding around again.
I wanted to check in on the sports world and I see this on ESPN. David Tyree is against gay marriage, like most everyone. Big deal. Why is this sports story? Every damned week the sporting press is running with a homosexual story. You just know they will make a fetish of Michael Sam this fall. They made fools of themselves hounding the gay basketball player last summer so you know they will go crazy over the football player. ESPN is the worst offender, but even sports radio can’t stop obsessing over the gays. There’s nowhere to hide from the constant chatter about homosexuals.
I’m all fagged out.
I want the love that dared not speak its name to go back to not speaking its name. Now it is the love that won’t shut the fuck up. You can’t escape it. If you watch TV, every show now must feature a homosexual, despite the fact only 3.4% of the population claim to be homosexual. There are more “little people” in this world than “trans” people, yet every newspaper in the country is running at least one tranny tale a week. If I were a midget, I’d feel like I was getting the short end…well…nevermind.
It is getting to the point where it is impossible to engage with popular culture. The preaching is unbearable. Preaching about homosexuals is even worse, given that no one, including most homosexuals, cares about homosexuals. Circling back (or reaching around if you prefer) to my story at the top, I remember a time when no one cared about the topic and they were generally decent enough to keep their feelings about it to themselves. Let’s go back to that.
But, that’s not how cultural genocide works. The lunatics give you two choices. One is you embrace their insane, ever shifting set of codes, or, else. ISIS is telling Iraqi Christians they must convert or die. The Greater American Lunatic is telling normals they must embrace and exult homosexuality or else. Well, nuts to that, as it were. I’ve had enough of the gays. I’m all fagged out and I don’t want to hear any more about the gays.

“Can it be valid to conceptualize ‘girls’ as having certain personal attributes universally in common, except perhaps their youth relative to women? In grappling with this question, we need not to lose sight of the fact that, however different, girls’ actions are oriented toward the same or similarly structured objects that construct their bodies’ social meanings, values, and challenges as gendered. . . . Social rules and practices surrounding menarche construct gender as a principle both for division of labor and for compulsory heterosexuality, thus constituting girls in a relation of growing vulnerability to boys’ and men’s appropriation.” – Susan Laird, “Befriending Girls as an Educational Life-Practice,” Philosophy of Education, 2002
“It has been the political policy of lesbian feminists to present ourselves publicly as persons who have chosen lesbian patterns of desire and sensuality. Whether as individuals we feel ourselves to have been born lesbians or to be lesbians by decision, we claim as morally and politically conscious agents a positive choice to go with it: to claim our lesbianism, to take full advantage of its advantages. This is central to our feminism: that women can know their own bodies and desires, interpret their own erotic currents, create and choose environments which encourage chosen changes in all these; and that a female eroticism that is independent of males and of masculinity is possible and can be chosen. We claim these things and fight in the world for all women’s liberty to live them without punishment and terror, believing also that if the world permits self-determined female eroticism, it will be a wholly different world.” – Marilyn Frye, Politics of Reality: Essays in Feminist Theory (1983)
Last week, I mentioned that the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is pushing to introduce “gender studies” to the high school curriculum, “creating innovative spaces for young people to engage in feminism and activism, equity, and social justice in today’s classrooms.” The symposium on this AAUW program featured Ileana Jiminez, a lesbian English teacher from New York. What this indicates is that the radical theories of feminist academics are ultimately destined for the K-12 classroom — and any parent who objects can expect to be condemned as a sexist homophobe.
Consider the phrase “compulsory heterosexuality.” This phrase entered the feminist lexicon via an influential 1980 essay by Adrienne Rich, “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence,” which I discussed at length in April. Rich’s essay, asserting that heterosexuality is not natural for women, but rather is imposed as a condition of male supremacy, has been widely anthologized and incorporated in Women’s Studies curricula.
The phrase turned up in a Google search I did, appearing as the title of a book chapter, “Compulsory Heterosexuality as Mis-education.” The author speaks of “the psychological damage inflicted [on gay adolescents] by years of bearing witness to, or experiencing, anti–lesbian and gay prejudice in countless forms”:
They are the product of a lifetime of learning in the hegemonic ideology of heterosexism. In practice, heterosexist ideology is instilled through numerous mechanisms. Family members initiate children into heterosexist ideology almost from birth, teaching acceptable gendered conduct as well as uneasiness with cross-gendered behaviors. This education is reinforced and expanded by religious institutions, peer groups, and the media . . . By the time children have reached first grade, they have already compiled a significant amount of data about what it means to be gay in a heterosexist society, even though much of what they have learned may well be incorrect, born of fear and prejudice rather than factual information. Schools are in a unique position to correct much of this misinformation at an early age before it ripens into anti–lesbian and gay prejudice and violence.
So, the public schools are to be enlisted to counteract this “fear and prejudice” of “heterosexist ideology”? What kind of lunatic gibberish is this, and who wrote it? This is from Rethinking Sexual Identity in Education, a 2004 book by Susan Birden, and it was originally her Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Oklahoma’s College of Education. Birden expressed her gratitude to her mentor:
While all my committee members have been engaged and helpful, I owe a life-long debt to my committee chair, Susan Laird, for she has been not only an advisor, but also a mentor of the highest caliber. A brilliant scholar, her expertise in guiding me through this entire doctoral process has been a testament to her great skill as an educator. From her comments on my first seminar entry, written some seven years ago, to her comments on the final draft of my dissertation, she has guided me through a maze of philosophic thought, nurturing my interests, pressing me to think more broadly, challenging me to think more specifically. Through it all she has demonstrated profound patience with my leaming, a committed focus and respect for my interests, accomplishing it all with the good humor of a “liver” of life. Susan Laird is both a fierce warrior and a kind soul.
Go read Birden’s dissertation, and you will find it is crammed full of quotes and citations from an all-star lineup of lesbian feminists — Mary Daly, Marilyn Frye, Janice Raymond, Charlotte Bunch, and on and on. Which brings us back to the question of exactly what the hell is going on in the University of Oklahoma’s College of Education, where Professor Susan Laird supervised this dissertation.
In addition to her position in the College of Education, Professor Laird has been a member of the faculty of the department of Women’s and Gender Studies since 1995. And her 2002 journal article, “Befriending Girls as an Educational Life-Practice,” is worth careful study. This eight-page article has 33 footnotes and cites numerous lesbian feminists, including Audre Lorde, Janice Raymond, Judith Butler and Marilyn Frye, the latter an author whose works I’ve quoted as examples of the anti-male/anti-heterosexual themes that have become commonplace in academic feminism.
“Fucking is a large part of how females are kept subordinated to males. It is a ritual enactment of that subordination which constantly reaffirms the fact of subordination and habituates both men and women to it, both in body and in imagination.” –- Marilyn Frye, Politics of Reality: Essays in Feminist Theory (1983)
“Men have been creating ideologies and political practices which naturalize female heterosexuality continuously in every culture since the dawns of the patriarchies. . . . Female heterosexuality is not a biological drive or an individual woman’s erotic attraction . . . Female heterosexuality is a set of social institutions and practices.” – Marilyn Frye, Willful Virgin: Essays in Feminism, 1976-1992 (1992)
Professor Laird cited Frye (although not these passages) in her 2002 Philosophy of Education article about “befriending girls,” an article which begins by relating the plot of a novel in which the young female protagonist “responds . . . with shock upon discovering this teacher who so generously befriended her is lesbian, but feels a new compassion that challenges [her] to unlearn her own heterosexism.” Did I mention that Professor Laird teaches in the College of Education, and that the title of that article is “Befriending Girls as an Educational Life-Practice”?
Yeah, Oklahoma, OK.

The truth is that Michael Sam seems more interested in being professionally gay
than being a pro-football player; so Tony Dungy’s right to say he’ll be a circus.
In fact, the reaction to Dungy’s innocuous comments prove it. People said the same sort of thing about Tim Tebow a zillion times and guess what? Tebow is out of the league even though Tebow’s popularity, position, and talent level made him much more of an asset to a team than Sam. Yet, you have liberals going nuts because Tony Dungy said what 31 teams in the league probably think of Michael Sam.
