More of the Same

Charlize Theron, actress
Normalizing Language

If you're either born in Africa or if your parents are from Africa, you're an African-American (or an American-African, a term not in use but makes more sense if  you're a US Citizen).

If a Mexican Citizen visits America, it's considered rude to refer to them as "a Mexican". If you meet the same businessman in Mexico, it's appropriate to refer to the person as "a Mexican".

It's sort of the leftists putting "assault" in front of the name of a weapon to define it in ways they feel are inappropriate, or "sniper" in front of the name of a scoped, bolt action, rifle. 

None of it makes the least bit of sense, but the progressives and their champions in the lying, filthy, sadistic, corrupt, sly, smug, elite media really love this stuff.

Progressives

There may some of you who feel that education in America is adequate. Some of you may believe that our science teachers are doing a good job, knocking it out of the park. I think that this - among many factors should lead to each student spending at least two more hours a day on math/science and history. It would be time well spent, that would otherwise be spent gossiping on social media and on video games.
CBS News — A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape. 
YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine percent of young adults answered that they have “always believed” the planet was flat. 
Another nine percent said of young adults said they thought the planet was spherical but had doubts about it. In a disturbing display of indecision, 16 percent of millennials said they weren’t sure what the shape of the planet was.
National Guard

When you see how things are going, and the HYSTERIA from the leftists over President Trump doing what ALL of his predecessors have done, don't you just scratch your head? I mean, how stupid is it to presume that the National Guard (state troops) should not be able to augment federal law enforcement engaged in lawful activity when overwhelmed by a threatened 'invasion' of people coming up from Central America?

The C Word

The news feeds have picked up that the State of California is now putting warning labels on all coffee products to the effect that they cause cancer. The speculation is running that coffee only causes cancer in California; that the toxic policies of a racist legislature is causing cancer and they are simply blaming the life blood of the US Navy for the results.

I'm not sure what to recommend to you, but while you're in California, settle for the non-fat soy latte macchiato with kale and garnished by a goat cheese wedge ($12.95/small cup) instead of your usual cuppa joe. If you want to have a snack, the tofu-and avocado on organically grown wheat toast is highly recommended. For the most part, tap water is undrinkable but there are at least fifty brands of bottled water that run from as little as $1.00 for the Costco brand (re-labled) to as much as 8.95 for the good water imported from a Pacific Island (actually it comes from the San Pedro settling ponds, and it's strained).

  1. “A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round.” Well, that’s a comforting thought for the future, ain’t it.

    California put warning labels on everything except liver and kale smoothies that make you vomit.

    1. The liver and whey shake is a big seller. Add kale and it's sure to replace coffee as the go to beverage. And when you think about it, you could also add tofu and avocado as deluxe toppings (consider them the ice cream substitute in your shake).

  2. All the black conservative friends I have insist on being called black.
    Never been to Africa and resent the association.

    1. Africa is a truly F'ed up continent. Apologies to some who drift by here who lived in Africa and don't now, I guess. I have no idea why ANYONE who isn't African would want to associate their lives with the mess that is Africa. We can argue how it got that way.

      I have a friend who was born in Nigeria (no, not a prince) came here and is now literally a rocket scientist. He considers himself "an American" and damned lucky to be here. He's black but that's incidental.

  3. Polling. Done by people who can't get a decent job talking to people who aren't being productive so have time to b.s. It is 'scientific" if you keep saving it is.

    1. I know, that was my FIRST reaction. However, yesterday, I did receive a call from a lady I know who asked me whether or not the Moon landings were faked. Her son, in university, has a professor who asserts that. So flat Earth? Maybe 10% of college students DO think that??

    2. Condom snorting is apparently gaining momentum on college campuses since the tide pod thing was a one-time event (they died) and you can keep snorting condoms. I suspect that those condom snorters flesh out the numbers of those who believe that the Earth is flat.

    3. Moonwalkers tell the whole story LL. If you take the time you will understand why some people believe it was all fake. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2718440/

    4. I missed that movie - that may have been viewed by the young Tide Pod eaters as a documentary. You're correct, that explains it all.

  4. There is nothing like having a hot cup of black coffee while dangling your feet off the edge of the flat world. By the way, if the world is flat, how come no one has ever been to the edge?

    1. There is some sort of conspiracy theory about the edge of the world, just like the Moon landings and coffee (and just about everything else except kale) causing cancer.

  5. Wow. I choose to remember how Kalifornia was in the 70s. At least what I remember of it then.
    The rest is annoying and disappointing.
    Beautiful day here in Louisiana. I hope your weather is good as well. Better for progressing on the hovel!

    1. Not ALL of California is horrible. The weather is good and something on the order of 40% of all possible voters are Republicans. It's simply an incubator for insanity.

  6. Well, Earth is neither flat nor round, but an oblate spheroid. But somehow I don't think that's what those poll-ees were thinking of.

    >Her son, in university, has a professor who asserts that [the moon landings were faked]
    Yeah, we're interviewing for a new office admin right now. Applicants are all girls with a recent college degree. The amount of nonsense in their heads is astonishing. "If it weren't for the greed of oil companies we'd have a totally renewable-energy economy." Also if it wasn't for the greed of big pharma we'd be providing free, top-notch healthcare to everyone.

    1. The oblate spheroid has an elastic mantle, so technically it could become a sphere, not that I'm pushing for that at the moment.

      Modern education isn't doing much to prepare people for an occupation in reality. It's not just the medical field, it's across the board including engineering and math, though they are far less subjective.

  7. the world is not flat. If it were, cats would have pushed everything off of it by now.

  8. I'm speechless, but shouldn't be. I saw plenty of idiots in Kalifornia that appear to be educated, but their heads are full of mush....

  9. There's a lot to like about this post, not least a weaponized Charlize Theron. Then there's the kale machiatto on a bed of goat cheese.

    Some call Hillary an "old goat", no reference to Baphomet intended.

    1. I've referred to Hillary as an old goat - and used to have neighbors who raised goats, so the full range of goat behavior is there on display when I see her.
