👶 Temper Tantrums and Fake News 👶 Open Thread



Dealing with a toddler who is throwing a temper tantrum in public is a nightmare for both the parent and the people around them. For one thing, if your child is indulging in a temper tantrum there is probably something wrong with how you are raising them. Or perhaps there is something wrong with the child other than what ever seemed to cause the temper tantrum in the first place.

If temper tantrums are frequent and stop when you give in it is likely you’re just raising a brat.

An adult having a temper tantrum is disgusting. A college coddling a bunch of “adults” having temper tantrums is beyond disgust. The thought that these pinheaded, infantilized “grown-up” toddlers will one day be running the country makes me glad I won’t live long enough to see it.



The liberal media thinks that showing or writing or telling us about the terrible pain that many on the left are experiencing because their choice lost the election will elicit sympathy. Really?

Not only are we supposed to experience the pain these little snowflakes are feeling we are also supposed to be outraged by the “fake” news the left has suddenly discovered. Fake News outrage from the left? Really?

The hypocrisy from the left suddenly complaining about fake news is breathtaking. From being the biggest purveyors of fake news to complaining about it is enough to give you mental whiplash.

My observations have convinced me that what the left considers fake news is any news that doesn’t tell them what they want to hear. That isn’t to say that there are some on the right who are also that kind of hypocrites. It just isn’t an epidemic on the right as it is on the left. And the right doesn’t usually throw a temper tantrum.Grown Man Throwing a Fit Or Temper Tantrum By Kicking and Screaming on the Ground - Royalty Free Clipart Picture

Adult Woman Throwing a Temper Tantrum, Kicking and Screaming on the Floor - Royalty Free Clipart PictureHere we are in 2016 with millions of supposedly adult people throwing hissy fits and babbling about fake news. Little children on a playground have more self-control and honesty. And I mean little children as in those who have not yet gone off to college. I know I’m old fashioned but we used to call them young adults. Now they’re called “children” and are supposed to be allowed to stay on your insurance policy until they’re 26 years old. Really?


Hissy fits and temper tantrums about  fake news combine two of the biggest “trending” issues with us today. No “Peace On Earth” or “Good Will Towards Men” when there are  important things to get upset about. And certainly do not ever let the facts get in the way of a good narrative. Or even a silly narrative since most people don’t know the difference.

By the way, is “Good Will Towards Men” sexist or are we allowed to believe that it is meant to mean “Good Will Towards All Mankind”. Or is that sexist too? PC is so confusing.


By golly there’s the proof of a hacked election – even signed by the thug that did it. And reported by ever reliable, stop laughing, CNN.  Don'[t ask why there is no mention of “if” the election was hacked it wasn’t aided and abetted by a candidate that while Secretary of State kept important, if not national security information, on a server located in her bathroom.

CNN, AKA the Clinton News Network doesn’t bother with facts if the facts don’t fit their narrative. See how that “fake news” thing works by simply not reporting things you don’t want the people to know.

You can not make crap like this up. The truth is far stranger than any “fake” news meme that is causing the left such angst. Angst is what they do when they don’t get their way.

College Crybabies Need Maturity 101

College students, who should be adults by now, are behaving as frail, coddled children — or worse, as rioters. The self-esteem-based participation trophies that millennials have effortlessly earned for the past 20 years have not prepared them for real life. In the face of disagreement, they wilt.

A tangible, post-election pall hangs in many college hallways. Students talk about how they slept little or fitfully on election night. Counselors are on hand to help student bodies cope with the “intense feelings of sadness and panic” and with the “challenging weeks ahead.”

If you know someone who is experiencing angst over fake news or is throwing a temper tantrum because, gasp, the person they voted for didn’t win here’s some good advice:A Baby With A Teddy Bear Throwing A Tantrum - Royalty Free Clipart Picture

How to Handle Temper Tantrums:

Unfortunately people don’t grow out of temper tantrums the way they do shoes or car seats. Here’s how to defuse a fit of rage, whether the person throwing it is 5 or 45.

While “anticipate, wait and validate, may be very good professional advice I personally believe that the best solution, when possible, is a bucket of cold water thrown with sufficient force to let the adult know you will no longer tolerate their childish behavior.

For a child the age-old remedy of upturning over your knee may land you in jail. Consider putting the brat up for adoption if no other remedy comes to mind.

Or wait until that’s your kid in the cartoon below…

    What a great post! And it is absolutely timely when you consider this article from The Federalist:


    This is just RIDICULOUS. This ahistorical perspective being pushed by not just students but Professors is beyond idiotic. To act as if Shakespeare is not important and doesn’t deserve a place of honor because he is WHITE is downright racism, if you ask me!

    Excellent post, Marge!

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Evidently racism against whites doesn’t count. And so the liberals would discount one of the greatest writers of all time for their stupidity and RACISM!

      And to further make my point about fake news:

    Small Town’s Entire Police Force Resigns – Here’s Why

    The police force of a small Indiana town just resigned over disgust with the town’s local government.

    Tomison wrote in his resignation letter. “This means you now have to notify the state building department that you no longer have a valid department.”

    Tomison said that the town council were constantly interested in “serving their own agenda” and requested the police force to be a part of “illegal, unethical and immoral things” like running background checks on some of the members on the board. The board members would then threaten the officers if they didn’t comply.


    More of this would do a lot of good in reining in the immoral, unethical and illegal actions of a lot of city government IMO.

    Goodness, you hit every funnybone in my body today. I think that the real irony in all of this is that the fake news will now be fact checked by the fakers at Snopes. Are they trying to garner new readership or just run off everyone who sees right through them?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      They’ve used the same old shtick for so long they can’t seem to understand that a majority of the people in this country see through them.

      So they do what all crazy people do – keep on doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. Nuts but comfortable.

    It’s Time to Chill About Global Warming

    By Susan Stamper Brown

    Global warming activists won’t be satisfied until the Earth freezes over and nothing survives.

    They relentlessly use obnoxious pictures of polar bears floating on melting sea ice to guilt people into believing we’re to blame. They chose the wrong animal as their “poster child.” Polar bears aren’t cuddly little snowballs who sip on colas all day and use a hunting rifle to compassionately put their prey out of misery when it’s snack time. Instead, polar bears use ambush tactics and sharp claws and teeth to feast on cute little seals they sometimes eat alive while kicking and screaming. They also snack on whales activists claim they want to save.

    Watching former Vice President Al Gore waddle his way around Trump Tower reminded me about how long this guilting’s been going on. For decades now, we’ve been told that computer models predict that a catastrophic ice-free Arctic Ocean is around the bend. In 2009, Gore said some computer models suggest “there is a 75 percent chance that the entire North Polar ice cap during some of the summer months could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.”

    Umm, didn’t happen.

    DHS Chief: ‘No Evidence’ Hacking Affected Ballot Count on Election Night

    Contrary to the CIA’s assessment that Russian cyberattacks helped Donald Trump win the election, the head of the Department of Homeland Security said there was no evidence to indicate anything of the sort happened.

    Speaking with the Washington Post’s David Ignatius, Jeh Johnson explained DHS’s cyber team was ready on election night and they didn’t see “anything that affected the ballot count,” he said.
