Sunday Funnies; No Holds Barred

And so this week, AG Barr testified, or at least tried to, since the Demonrats wouldn’t let him speak.

The more things change…

Alive and kickin’

Lots of talk recently about the Silent Majority. I am a member. There are thousands upon thousands of us across America. We’re tight-lipped; play our cards close to the chest. Watch everything; reveal nothing. We are the ninjas – we are the shadow that passes, seen out of the corner of the Left’s eye, almost imperceptible. That’s the way we like it.

I’ve mentioned before that we don’t do polls. The only poll that counts is on election day. The news would have you believe that Joe Biden is ahead in the polls; they’re quite right – of course, he is. The Woke Generation, the Karens, the ‘peaceful’ protesters, the Twitterati – those are the people who participate in polls. They love their voices to be heard – shout, scream, holler, answer a poll. They love to be ‘in your face’, put you up against the wall, get your undivided attention. They’ve done an excellent job so far. We watch, we note, we consider, we remember.

As I’ve lamented, I get every conceivable request for donations to every conceivable Republican across the United States – they use similar scare tactics; the world is going to end if President isn’t re-elected! It’s up to ME, they tell me, to ensure the life of the Constitution, the second amendment, free speech; it’s all up to me and my bank account. If that were true, we’d be in sorry shape, for sure. But I understand the theory behind this – how else to get folks to respond? Fear is a mighty tool – ask the Left. They’ve been using it for decades, all around the world. In case we didn’t get it the four thousandth time around, they are letting us know socialism is a real, very real, threat to America and we’d better be doing all we can to stop it, root it out, kill it once and for all.

I’m ashamed to say I love the latest news from Portland – what a hole that place is! Their mayor ‘found the love’ of the Left when they all but physically attacked him at a protest mob, at 11 o’clock at night, in front of a Federal Court building. He experienced what we always knew would happen. They don’t respect anything or anyone and you can never, ever make them happy. Inch = mile = on your property = doxing your personal information = coming in your house. How do ya like ’em now, Mayor?

We watch, we note, we consider, and we remember. The Silent Majority; alive and kickin’.

People should refrain from publically demonstrating they are wimpy nerds.

Then there is the team with no name™.

Generational Destruction and Teacher’s Unions

Bookworm has some thoughts on keeping schools closed due to union pressures. I think she’s spot on. Let’s have a look.

1. President Trump wants to open the schools, so leftists reflexively oppose opening them.

2. Leftists think they can leverage school re-openings for political extortion. The Los Angeles teachers’ union is demanding, among many other things, that the city de-fund charter schools (their competition), raise taxes on the wealthy, and shrink class sizes by 50%. Meanwhile, in North Carolina, a teachers’ union is insisting that they won’t return to the classroom unless the state implemented universal healthcare for citizens and illegal aliens alike.

3. Having children at home puts enormous pressure on families. Single mothers can’t work at all. Two-parent families may be seeing their income shrink by 50%. This creates two possible responses:

The people who are mad with fear about the virus are also the people who think that Biden can actually make it all better.

Possible in 2020 America, but it’s also an indictment of the education these so-called adults received. No president can really do very much short term about the schools. Of course, calling off the Democratic dogs might be another matter. Or there is this:

Then there are the people who know this is all a con, intended to pressure people into voting for Biden. The way the con works is that, once Biden wins, the whole virus madness will end as swiftly as it did during the Black Lives Matter protests. These people want to vote for Trump, but they believe a vote for Biden is the only way to end this Democrat extortion.

Which ties back to my comment on the first option. It also brings to mind a bit of Kipling:

IT IS always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
To call upon a neighbour and to say: –
“We invaded you last night – we are quite prepared to fight,
 Unless you pay us cash to go away.”And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you’ve only to pay ’em the Dane-geld
And then you’ll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: –
“Though we know we should defeat you,
we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
 But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
 You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
 For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: —

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
 No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
 And the nation that plays it is lost!”

Anybody think teacher’s unions are any different?

Then there is the other side:

1. There’s nothing conservatives want more than to see the end of public schools. Students stuck in bad districts don’t get educated at all and students in all districts are subject to non-stop leftist indoctrination. Additionally, the teachers’ unions are consistently the largest Democrat donors in most elections. […]

2. Keeping kids out of school is really bad for them. We know that, unless they’re terribly immune-compromised or weak in other ways, the virus is a mere nothing to them. Keeping them out of school won’t save their lives.

However, long-distance education is nothing fish nor fowl. It’s not homeschooling, which has a separate dynamic that’s very focused on the individual. Instead, it’s drone schooling, […]

Another problem is that children need to socialize. Not only are they being kept from school, but they’re also not even supposed to see other children under this paranoid regime. […]

Lastly, children need to develop their immune systems. By protecting them from the one virus, we’re preventing them from exposure to all the other things that their body needs if it’s to educate the immune system to protect them throughout their lives. […]

A hearty YUP to all five, and probably another dozen neither Book nor I thought of. It’s the worst of all possible non-answers to a non-existent problem. Why exactly should we allow teachers (and their unions) who have time and again proved that they care less than nothing about anybody but themselves and their political power to completely ruin another generation of our children?

I can’t stop thinking about that woman in Arizona who threw her toddler out the window to save it. She was already on fire and might have saved herself by jumping after the baby. She didn’t, though. Instead, she stayed in the apartment, burning to death, to make sure that her 8-year-old daughter survived (which the girl did). Would that mother be so afraid of a virus that she would willingly destroy her children’s education and socialization? (And again, that’s assuming there are such benefits from modern public school education.)

It’s an excellent point and those responsible should be thinking long and hard about it.

Read her full post (linked above). It’s the most common sense I’ve seen on the topic.

How you Goya keep ’em down on the plantation after they’ve tasted success?

 

We, of course, know this. Why? Because Audre told us so!

Rules are rules.

This young lady is a LAPD officer. Recently she was attacked by a knife wielding meth head who had caused a traffic accident. H ewon’t do it again. She put six out of six in the X-Ring.
