Which book should I read first?

The dust jacket tells you all you need to know about HiLlARy's book. What Happened? HiLlARy Clinton  (11 hrs ago | post #2)

Is Osprey Cove falling apart?

No, but it sounds like you have. What has you so upset? You almost sound like a lone Anti-FA member, complaining about the people at a Trump rally because they wouldn't let him in.  (Saturday | post #207)

Is Osprey Cove falling apart?

I think most of the negative comments here concerning Osprey Cove have little to do with Osprey Cove, per se, and everything to do with the individual posting the comments. I think they can be safely attributed to negative opinions by them of a particular resident and/or envy.  (Saturday | post #205)

The Saint Marys Topix Censor is working overtime

I have been trying to post stories concerning the poor fundraising by the DNC and an upcoming cover of Time Magazine but the posts get blocked whether they are in their own threads or as comments in other threads. I still can't find out what the posting standards are.  (Friday Sep 22 | post #1)

Seven Signs of Liberal Privilege

https://townhall.c om/columnists/timo thydaughtry/2017/0 9/20/seven-signs-o f-liberal-privileg e-n2384136 When a snowflake melts, all that is left is a DRIP. (See article for the rest of the article and internal references.) **** Alongside accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia, we can now list “white privilege” and “male privilege” as ideological weapons that the far left uses in their nonstop attacks on America’s culture. Rather than going on the defensive against the left’s latest accusations, however, the rest of us should see the tactic for what it is and for what it reveals about the need to confront a much more pervasive problem: liberal privilege. <snip> Here is a brief checklist to aid in recognizing the signs of liberal privilege: 1. Assuming that you have the right to control what everyone else does, what they have, what they say, and how they think. The idea of living your own life and – here’s a thought – leaving others the hell alone to do the same never crosses your mind. 2. Assuming that you have the right never to hear any opinion that contradicts your own, and using intimidation and violence if necessary to protect your ideological bubble. And if someone actually does or says something you don’t like, you are entitled to a hug or a puppy. 3. Assuming that feeling offended on your part constitutes a political crisis on the nation’s part. Others might have to grow up and accept the fact that the world will not bow to their every whim, but not you. 4. Having exquisite sensitivity to the moral speck in society’s eye while ignoring the beam in your own. It is your privilege to establish the standards by which others must live and to critique them at will, but any criticism of you is evidence of hatred. 5. Consistency is for other people. You are free to deny the existence of absolutes while imposing absolute standards that others must follow. As long as your heroes condemn fossil fuels and support gun control, they are free to fly in private jets and live in mega-mansions protected by armed guards. You are free to say the vilest things about conservative blacks or women, but any criticism of liberal blacks or women is evidence of racism or sexism. 6. You must be judged only by your rhetoric and not by your results. If your social policy weakens black families, the resulting social ills are the result of racism on society’s part and not any arrogance, presumption, or failing on your part. As long as you claim to value education, you are free to support an educational system that cranks out students who cannot read or do basic math, and who are ignorant of even the most essential points of American and world history. 7. And finally, liberal privilege means never having to say “not guilty.” Laws that apply to everyone else do not apply to you. Laws protecting public and private property may be suspended in order to allow leftists room to ventilate their feelings. Laws protecting classified information or forbidding the abuse of governmental positions to harass opponents do not apply to you or your allies. The left constantly introduces new words and phrases into our political discourse. Perhaps the phrase that has been missing is, “Your liberal privilege is showing.” This would be a good time to introduce it.  (Wednesday Sep 20 | post #1)
