  • FLOTUS Friday: Old Oppressive White Guys Strike Again.

    Consider this your official fall fashion alert: plaid is back.Specifically, Glen plaid. I only mention this because you know how the PC (Perpetually Cis-ed off) crowd behind the #metoo movement hate that women have culturally appropriated the fashion of old white guys. I mean, could there be a more quintessentially male fabric than Saville Rowe’s Glen plaid?                                    Worn by every old white guy ever known, from Cary Grant in North by Northwestto Sean Connery’s and Daniel Craig’s uber-macho James Bond.And then along came women like Ginger Rogers and Lana Turner, appropriating the heck out of it.- to the point that...

    At the risk of sounding like an old codger sitting on the porch shouting, “Hey you kids, get off my lawn,” today’s Halloween vibe just ain’t like it used to be. Halloweens of more than half a century ago in my little town in Illinois were not confused with politics and political correctness. It was a night when tiny ghosts and goblins, spooks and spirits, fairies and firemen ran up to doors and waited for tricks or treats to land in their paper grocery sacks. Kids stayed close to home, except for short drives across town to scare relatives or...
  • Quora query, Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump?

    Been working on a response for a Quora query, You are a devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer. Or devout Catholic or Mormon. Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump? Otherwise, why wouldn't you? I only worked on what the alternative to Trump would mean so far. Any suggestions for this? "Devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer" best fits evangelicals, and even considering the alternative from that overall perspective should suffice for now, as illustrated by this (imperfect) analogy: You are at a port along with many other people, trying to continue on a long journey to get to...
  • Son's school wants to do "Peace Day" (vanity)

    Today my son brought up that they're having a "Peace Day" "celebration" tomorrow at school with stations to do things at. Such as "painting rocks with peace signs" and origami (wanted to do "peace" sign but wouldn't work he thinks). I.e., looks like they're pushing the stupid UN idea and of course, the hippie norm.

    Administrator’s have banned a 9/11 memorial at the Wisconsin college because Muslims might feel bad and get “singled out and/or harassed”. Young America’s Foundation which puts up the memorial each year said the administration cited bias reports. They are not allowed to put up a 9/11 memorial or any memorial for a victim of radical Islamic terrorism.

    Remember when teachers were the adults in the room? Apparently that’s not always the case these days. Take the case of 10-year old Tamarion for example; his teacher punished him for addressing her (zir?) as “ma’am” – a term of respect towards the female gender until such time SJWs began creating new genders and gender neutrality rules. This was his punishment: writing “ma’am” over 200 times – 4 columns, both sides of the page.Now I don’t pretend to know what grievance the teacher was attempting to redress by instructing her young student to cease and desist. It could be ageism,...

    I was sitting on my daughter’s bed reading Laura Ingalls Wilder, and this and other scenes in “Little House on the Prairie” stopped me cold. What had been, in my gauzy memory, a beautiful and pure story was complicated by passages like this: “Why don’t you like Indians, Ma?” Laura asked, and she caught a drop of molasses with her tongue. “I just don’t like them; and don’t lick your fingers, Laura,” said Ma.

    Thanks, advocates of the self esteem movement (aka Let’s Make America Mediocre Again).Thanks #MeToo, for solidifying the belief that all women great and small are the same: victims.Thanks Social Justice Warriors, for imposing your standards of “justice” on the world. ON JUNE 5th Miss America announced that it would ditch the bikinis and become a “competition”, rather than a pageant. “We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance,” announced Gretchen Carlson (pictured), the chairwoman of Miss America’s board of directors, and a former Miss America (1989). “That’s huge.” – The Economist And that is where the...

    Today is the day Starbucks closes over 8000 stores for a Virtue Signaling Caffeine-Free Day of Atonement™ and racial healing. All because back in April some racist manager attempted to follow Starbuck’s racist store policy and threw a couple of guys (black, which is the only relevant fact) out of the store because they didn’t buy anything. In April, a Starbucks manager in Philadelphia called the police when two young African-American men refused to leave his store for loitering. When the pair still refused to leave, they were arrested, setting off a national outcry.Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz quickly stepped into...

    The candidate for a seat in the UC Berkeley student Senate promised safe spaces for squirrels, better access to acorns and support groups for those experiencing habitat loss. His name was Furry Boi, he campaigned in a squirrel suit and he attracted immediate attention. "omg i love him he's so cute," Iris Melody Xu, a UC Berkeley student, wrote on Furry Boi's Facebook page. "Finally, a candidate I can get behind," someone else wrote. But when the character that sophomore Stephen Boyle had created as a joke actually won one of the Associated Students of the University of California's 20...

    Student senators at the University of Washington-Seattle recently introduced a bill that would require fraternities to prevent "cultural appropriation" during social gatherings. [Snip] ... the bill is necessary because many "mainstream [fraternity] celebrations further perpetuate stereotypes minority groups have to face," adding that they contribute to the "harm that minority students face" on campus.

    One of the greatest comic minds of the twentieth century, Mel Brooks, said late last year that "stupid political correctness" would be "the death of comedy." "It's not good for comedy," Brooks said in September 2017.  "Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks.  Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behavior." It's safe to say Brooks speaks from a podium of unparalleled wisdom on this matter.  His movie Blazing Saddles remains one of the least politically correct movies Hollywood has ever made.  It's also probably the funniest.  Brooks has said that that "political correctness...
  • Columbia Student Complains About Professor Saying 'Negro' During Lesson About 1960’s

    A Columbia University student publicly complained about her professor using the word "Negro," even though he said it in a lesson about 1960s America. The Columbia Daily Spector ran a story Thursday about what happens "when professors make racially insensitive remarks." The paper cited a complaint by student Maria Fernanda Martinez of a perceived "microagression." Martinez said her professor told the class it was appropriate to use the term "Negro" when discussing the 1960's, a time when that was the politically correct term for African-Americans.

    My brother was kind enough to pass this article along to ruin my weekend: We Nneed the Singular ‘They’ – and It Won’t Seem Wrong For Long. He thought it could provide fodder for my Monday Moanin’ post, and that it did, splendiferously. He noted that while “it was written by an educated woman who clearly knows better, her allegiance to the 198 or so newly discovered genders demands that she take this position.”The article is written by Stephanie Golden, a ground breaking editor in her own right who has been serving humanity with gender equality copy since the late...

    A female student who told school administrators she'd been sexually assaulted by a teacher was suspended and then forced to apologize to the accused perpetrator and hug him, according to an indictment against three Colorado school officials handed down Wednesday. Principal David Gonzales, Vice Principal AJ MacIntosh and counselor Cheryl Somers-Wegienka of Prairie Middle School in Aurora, Colo. were named in the indictments, FOX31 Denver reported. The Cherry Creek School District informed parents MacIntosh and Gonzales were placed on administrative leave “pending the outcome of the court proceedings.” Somers-Wegienka stopped working at the school before the indictment. The indictment stems...

    Eater, a food and restaurant review blog, is pretty much thumbs down on Chick-fil-A. Not that they have anything against their food, it’s their lack of SJW credentials, their failure to conform to correct group-think with respect to same sex marriage that earned them the distinction of being voted off the food island. I’m here to report that the increasingly ubiquitous chain serves a pretty good fast-food breakfast, a pretty great frozen coffee, and a pretty average chicken sandwich. I’m also here to report that it’s the only top 10 quick-service restaurant that doesn’t mention sexual orientation in its online...
