Blank-slatism is a cornerstone of leftist orthodoxy: all humans are the same and race is a social construct. Even though Diversity is Our Strength™ anyone can be anything, do anything. Imagine my shock at coming across an article in a leftist publication endorsing human biodiversity:
The scientific research hits on some of the most sensitive racial anxieties of Western-African relations, but it’s also an amazing story of human biodiversity.... [Read More]
The reaction to POTUS going on the offensive against his enemies has been predictable. (Note: I use the word “enemies” as the Democrats, Media, Globalist Donors and the embedded Deep State long ago gave up any pretense of being ‘the loyal opposition”)
The “Mueller” report hearings had their effect, they turned the tide from defense to offense. (If someone tells me their theory is that Mueller got a deal from Barr that if he made himself to be a doddering old fool in public , he would keep his freedom and get a get out of jail free card, I would not dispute it. It was a great performance. If Alec Guinness was alive, he could take the role)... [Read More]
There’s a slight change of tone in evidence on the Conservative side of the House of Commons today.
MUST WATCH | Boris wipes the floor with Corbyn and McDonnell in his first Commons appearance as PM. The gloves are off and playtime is over – after three feeble years of Theresa May, Labour weren't ready for this! 😂... [Read More]
I have been reading “Change.edu: rebooting for the new talent economy” by Andrew S. Rosen. It is about the craziness of higher education. Students were able to go to four year resorts masquerading as colleges with student loans. They got to live in nice places with great food and wonderful recreational facilities but they couldn’t afford them. They couldn’t opt out of the frills to get just the education so they overpaid. The axis of evil of admissions departments, “will give a loan to anyone” government, and “can’t live in the real world” educators have brought back a form of slavery know as “indentured servitude”. Sad.
Of course, the Democratic candidates have as their motto “When responsibility is needed make the innocent pay.” They want the people who didn’t go to college to pay the student loans of those who did. Giving away “free” is what they think is “fair”. For it is unfair for “Sally or Johnny” to ever face the cost of their actions. Maybe they can call the program “Planned Payback” or they can say they are “Pro-choice” which means not paying.... [Read More]
As the rancor rules and the sound and fury signifies the usual air time fill, the lines of the American Divide unfold.
The Traditionals , old school Americans, value deeds, actions and results. We went to the moon, we ended slavery, we beat the Nazis, we cured polio, we produced jobs, wealth, assets for the future and prosperity. America stirs positive emotions in this group.... [Read More]
I listen to a lot of bemoaning of technology today, most focusing on phones. Yes, they can entice bad habit behavior, like cigarettes used to , along with television and government subsidies. This is a bit of thought on the positive aspects of this technology. It all started with a Ratburger comment….
(Hypatia made a comment on the “Things that used to be true” post that got me thinking. I started a reply, but it got way too verbose and was distinctly off thread of conversation, so here it is:)... [Read More]
Where was everyone? Jeffrey Epstein manipulated and abused young girls for years. Maybe the number is in the hundreds. These girls were lured by the cash and high life. Some I heard at the beginning got $300 for giving Epstein just a massage. He knew they were underage but continued.
It bothers me that I have heard of no parent coming forward talking about how they were aware of this predator at the time. How did they not know their daughters were getting this extra cash? Were they so derelict to be unaware of the dangers? Did they have stars in their eyes because he was a rich man?... [Read More]
I am gaining respect for Bagpipe Bill Barr. He is a respected lawyer and simultaneously and old Washington hand, the kind of guy POTUS has needed. One who knows how to navigate the swamp and how to walk across alligators without getting wet, much less eaten.
I use a commercial gas station. It requires a card and is unattended. You even need the card for the rest rooms. I have the card because I am officially an employee of one of my oldest clients , the owner gives me health insurance on his plan and I am his CFO when he needs one.
