Cognitive Dissonance of the left
« Reply #1550 on: March 22, 2021, 07:23:40 AM »
Interesting point here.  "If the United States was starting from scratch, we wouldn’t create a separate state of Delaware. Its existence is a fillip of ancient colonial history, and it houses only one-quarter of 1% of the nation’s population. Its share of land area is even tinier. Some 57% of its residents live in New Castle County, mostly affluent, suburban turf that’s part of the Philadelphia metro area....It was a slave state..."

-------

Rejecting the Founding, if the left had its their way, these little states would not be states, would have no added importance.  The Senate would have no unique significance, just be part of a unicameral people's house.  There would be no Delaware, no Senate, no Senator Biden and no President Biden.  Hmmm.

Fauci children's book

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2021/03/22/childrens-book-celebrates-how-dr-fauci-became-americas-doctor/#

not clear why he is not disgraced for being a beneficiary of white privilege here
or why we here he is a boy
and not cisgender or whatever the acceptable term is.

Actually Fauci has been very impressive over his career

I don't like the label "Americas doctor" though

he ain't mine .  I prefer Ben Carson .

hearing more and more leftist speaking quite openly about trying to wipe the republican party by 2024

it is obvious their intent
but now they openly come out and say it

rinos who still deny this are just as stupid as Obama Biden and everyone since GH Bush about China

BTW what happened to the civil war thread ?

Cognitive Dissonance of the left, Firing staff for past pot use

“Dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended, asked to resign, or placed in a remote work program due to past marijuana use,”

Even when smoked in states where it's legal.

Yet President Bozo's first real hire Kamala cackled about her pot use, "Yes I have", "And I inhaled", Hahaha.  "Half my family's Jamaican!" Hahahahaha!

But that was a long time ago [when it was ILLEGAL]
Where's her suspension

Buttigieg too.  But not too high to raise taxes.

10 Radical Rules Changing America, VDH
« Reply #1556 on: April 05, 2021, 08:22:15 AM »

The Ten Radical New Rules That Are Changing America
By VICTOR DAVIS HANSON
April 1, 2021

Many American privately reject the new diktats of wokism. But publicly, not so much.

There are ten new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently.

1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much.


Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits, but at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe that permanent zero-interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or that the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution.

2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” But he has willfully rendered federal immigration laws null and void. Some rioters are prosecuted for violating federal laws, others not so much. Arrests, prosecutions, and trials are all fluid. Ideology governs when a law is still considered a law.

Crime rates do not necessarily matter. If someone is carjacked, assaulted, or shot, it can be understood to be as much the victim’s fault as the perpetrator’s. Either the victim was too lax, uncaring, and insensitive, or he provoked his attacker. How useful the crime is to the larger agendas of the Left determines whether a victim is really a victim, and the victimizer really a victimizer.

3) Racialism is now acceptable. We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily — if at all — by an American commonality. The explicit exclusion of whites from college dorms, safe spaces, and federal aid programs is now noncontroversial. It is unspoken payback for perceived past sins, or it’s a type of “good” racism. Falsely being called a racist makes one more guilty than falsely calling someone else a racist.

4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen. The newcomer, unlike the host, is not stained by the sins of America’s founding and history. Most citizens currently must follow quarantine rules and social distancing, stay out of school, and obey all the laws.

Yet those entering the United States illegally need not follow such apparently superfluous COVID-19 rules. Their children should be immediately schooled without worry of quarantine. Immigrants need not worry about their illegal entry or residence in America. Our elites believe that illegal entrants more closely resemble the “Founders” than do legal citizens, about half of whom they consider irredeemable.

5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children. They cannot be asked to provide an ID to vote. “Noble lies” by our elites about COVID-19 rules are necessary to protect “Neanderthals” from themselves.

Americans deserve relief from the stress of grades, standardized testing, and normative rules of school behavior. They still are clueless about why it is good for them to pay far more for their gasoline, heating, and air conditioning.

6) Hypocrisy is passé. Virtue-signaling is alive. Climate-change activists fly on private jets. Social-justice warriors live in gated communities. Multibillionaire elitists pose as victims of sexism, racism, and homophobia. The elite need these exemptions to help the helpless. What matters is what you say to lesser others about how to live, not how you yourself live.

7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it. It is more humane to let thousands of homeless people live, eat, defecate, and use drugs on public streets and sidewalks than it is to green-light affordable housing, mandate hospitalization for the mentally ill, and create sufficient public shelter areas.

8.) McCarthyism is good. Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence.

Now that Americans know they are one wrong word, act, or look away from losing their livelihoods, they are more careful and will behave in a more enlightened fashion. The social-media guillotine is the humane, scientific tool of the woke.

9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge. Neither statue-toppling, nor name-changing, nor the 1619 Project requires any evidence or historical knowledge. Heroes of the past were simple constructs. Undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees reflect credentials, not knowledge. The brand, not what created it, is all that matters.

10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity. Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican; and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter are the new gospels.


Americans privately fear these rules while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.

The answer determines whether a constitutional republic continues as once envisioned, or warps into something never imagined by those who created it.

John Hinderaker picks Pete Buttigieg, the Transportation Secretary who staged his ride to work on a bicycle by traveling most of the distance in a Chevy Suburban.  The video shows him hidden in the trees unloading the bike, mounting it with his suit, his helmet, his mask, his little blinking tail light and a great big Chevy Suburban with a staff of drivers and assistants.  It looks like a grown up rides next to him, a bodyguard twice his size peddling a fat tire bike.  Then the Suburban drives behind them.  Green!

Buttigieg: "I should have more accurate"
« Reply #1558 on: April 12, 2021, 07:11:05 AM »
He said the study said it would grow jobs by 19 million and it really said it would grow jobs by 2 million, also untrue.

How can you be more of something of which you are none?  He lied.  He wasn't partly accurate nd should have been more.  What he should have done is tell the truth.

But he didn't.  The why of that should concern us.  The same lie was told by all of them.  In other words, it was coordinated, ordered from above.  He didn't make a mistake in speaking or analysis.  He made the mistake of joining an administration that requires lying to justify their actions and proposals.  He made the mistake of getting caught.  He made the mistake of going on a show that just might call him out on it now that he's not busy shouting down Trump.

Maxine Waters Asked For Police Escort
« Reply #1566 on: April 20, 2021, 08:12:20 AM »
Defund them, they're racist, take away their guns, oh by the way I will need an armed police escort to protect me during my visit aimed at ramping up the violence in your northern confederate city.

https://dailycaller.com/2021/04/19/rep-maxine-waters-police-escort-rioters/
Rep. Maxine Waters Asked For Police Escort As She Encouraged Protestors To ‘To Get More Confrontational’

Waters flew into Minnesota-St. Paul International Airport on April 17, just days ahead of a verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. The congresswoman requested a police escort that night when she called for people to stay out on the streets if Chauvin is not found guilty and they don’t get “justice,” according to Townhall.

Waters said she also felt the need to attend the protests to show the family of Daunte Wright, who was shot by police during a traffic stop on April 11, that someone was listening to them. (RELATED: Two National Guard Members Injured During Drive-By Shooting In Minneapolis)

“We’ve got to stay on the street, and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters said, “We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
----------------------------------------------------------
Where is my police escort?  Who says her work is more important?

Pelosi supports diplomatic boycott of Olympics in China. What the hell is a diplomatic boycott. Boycott is not hyphenated.  You send a team or you boycott.

"what a joke"

June 19 will be celebrated on June 18 this year - so that people who already get Saturday and Sunday off get an extras day off.  Hey Doc, Do hospitals get weekends off?   )

In my business, the more state and federal holidays the better.  I wonder if the Minneapolis Department of Regulatory Services is closed today.  Who will protect the public?

and even more of a joke
is the fact that VP Harris

gave us a lecture about this before jBiden got on stage to slumber through a speech like written by far left historian Jim Meacham

and the only reason this mostly unqualified and totally unpopular person is the VP is precisely because she is black.  yet she would lecture us on how much work needs to be done
and we are still racist

we don't need to have these historical events shoved up our buttocks from 150 yrs from now for phony 2021 racism

they can't even get their story straight
The emancipation proclamation was in 1863.

Joe Johnston did not surrender (after lee did ) till I think 5 /65
so I did not know the specific date of June 19 - so what .
  :-(
 
I learned as far back as I can remember about slavery and the rest...

"precisely because she is black."

   - She is part 'black' but she identifies Black.

The emancipation proclamation was in 1863.

   - The Republican emancipation proclamation.  Not the entire country was behind it.

Now that they've rejected the core of "I have a Dream", do we lose a January holiday?
