First of all, he sold the rights a few years ago, so he can’t really claim any control or make any demand, dumbass. Second, he’s wrong about Covid and Rogan has scientists and doctors on his podcast who know the actual facts.
He’s just another Karen who gives Canada and celebrities a bad name. Go back home and leave us the hell alone. Canada has some pretty horrible Covid policies so maybe he’d be happier.
It is reported that he has maybe 2.4 million followers total. Rogan gets as many as 50 million per episode, especially when he has a Covid expert on.
None of his music has been very good since he left Crosby, Stills and Nash. No one gives a flying fig.
It’s Karen’s like him that make you dislike people who got famous but should just STFU.
I’ve listened to them both. Rogan is very entertaining. Young’s music isn’t very good (I change the channel and have for decades when he comes on).
I’d be OK if Spotify kicked him off or agreed to let him go. No one would notice.
He got an answer from Spotify:
Still no one cares. He has been a poser his whole life.
I remember when sports stars were role models and hero’s.
Now, they think that because they are famous and rich, that they are smarter than the rest of us and have the right to tell use what we should do. Let’s look at what the sportstards have done….
LeBron is an asshole too for what he says while being owned by the CCP and Nike. Yes, owned. He doesn’t say a lot of things for fear of losing his endorsement money, but his shoes are made by slaves in China, on a plantation.
The same for Colin above.
I barely watch sports anymore because of these assholes.
I’ll make an exception for Aaron Rogers, who is a superstar with a brain and a set of balls. He didn’t fall for the Covid shit and is not trying to tell others what to do, other than telling the NFL to fuck off.
I posted recently how Mars Candy went woke. I hate woke anything. It only makes our lives worse by a few people who don’t want anyone to be happy. It’s Social Terrorism (I’m inventing that definition).
Here’s the truth. We are not equal. Some are better than others because they try harder, were born that way, are smarter, luckier or made better decisions. The worst decision is going Woke. Ask Gillette about their 9 billion dollar loss last year when going woke.
I can’t be alone in getting sick of this crap. Be whoever you want to be, just don’t shove it down our throats and try to force the rest of the world accept nonsense we know isn’t true.
Anyway, this sums it up for me and helped me decide to only buy Reece’s Piece’s. I’m sure I’ll find out that Hershey’s has done something similar, I just am choosing to ignore it until I can’t.
Even on the M&M’s promo website, the green M&M – which previously had been branded as kind of the “sexy” M&M, now identifies as a “hypewoman“:
What’s your best quality?
Being a hypewoman for my friends. I think we all win when we see more women in leading roles, so I’m happy to take on the part of supportive friend when they succeed.
Tucker: M&M’s will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous. Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal. When you’re totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity… pic.twitter.com/rz7VtVCHWu
Popular News host Tucker Carlson made fun of the changes during a Friday segment, saying they were designed to to turn people off, which would mean “equity,” at least in the left’s eyes, had been achieved:
Well, it’s worked on me. I’ve bought M&M’s for decades, but no more. Take your woke shit and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Exercise your first amendment.
This is what the MSM/current government/SJW/Woke/PC/climate change people/Fake book/Twitter/Youtube/Google and the left are doing. If you aren’t worried about your truth being challenged, you don’t have to silence anyone. If the facts don’t support your spew, see Harry’s quote.
It seems that you can’t say anything without offending someone. If you read my blog, it’s there waiting for you somewhere. It’s not going to stop me. Look down a post or two about John not giving a fuck.
On a hat tip from Moonbattery.
I moved from a Northern Blue State (South Florida) decades ago to raise my kids in what was know as a Bible Belt state. Due to the area nearby (RTP), it attracted many people from the Bluer states. It was also near eastern Portland/San Francisco (Chapel Hill). That is a concentration of people who consider themselves elites, but in reality were just a bunch of Woke/PC/SJW America hating socialists who were against anything morally proper. So in a way they are elitists, but that is not a compliment. They are a group of disagreeable people who live to try and tell everyone else how to live. They are loathed by most of the surrounding area.
It is safe to say that they ruined a perfectly good place to live with their constant whining to try and make it either NYC or California by standards. They were and still are a minority, but have infiltrated the University System (UNC-CH, Duke, NC State, Wake Forest, etc.) and make life miserable in a once very nice place to live.
Therefore, I moved to get back to the South, where people are normal and have beliefs that are not Marxist. I don’t want to say where for fear that the dicks from the blue states will come and ruin that also.
Just like in Florida, they would come there and say how much better it was in NY/NJ/Penn/Mass than where we lived. Go the hell back if it was so good. Don’t come to a good place and ruin it with the policies that you moved away from, starting with more taxes and more Government.
First, they stop sponsoring NASCAR, now they are being inclusive. When will these companies learn that most regular people don’t want to hear about this crap.
I don’t eat much candy anymore, but I’ve loved M&M’s since I was a kid, especially peanut.
At least the green one is a girl, because I always picked them out to eat last.
The reality is every one of them is the same to a color blind or blind person. A little food coloring is the only difference.
I hate everything Woke and I’m going to have to really think about this one as I usually boycott everything woke. Fortunately, I love Reece’s pieces, which are the same thing.
Could we go back to melt in your mouth and not in your hands please?
he beloved M&M characters are becoming more “inclusive” with several changes that are subtle but noticeable.
Mars Wrigley, which owns M&Ms, announced on Thursday a “global commitment to creating a world where everyone feels they belong and society is inclusive.”
The green M&M character will lose her peach-colored legs and stiletto boots in favor of white legs and sneakers after criticism that the character was sexualized. Mars said it wanted the green M&M to be “better represented to reflect confidence and empowerment, as a strong female, and known for much more than her boots.”
….it goes on, but it’s not worth reading. Just like the rest of being woke or PC, it’s nonsense by people that have too much time on their hands and are looking to be offended. Go TF away from us.
DiCaprio: “I have a foundation for 20 years. I have to go to Glasgow. I got to see world leaders make some pretty big commitments, but just like in this movie, there’s a ticking clock. I think there is a global sense of anxiety that the powers that be, the private sector, the governments, are not making the transition fast enough. We literally have a nine year window.” … “Our governments, the governments of the world, must work together as a community species and we must evolve as a species to address this problem.”
I post this only to show the deepness of the pool of idiocy that is both Hollywood and the Climate hoax.
I am not denying that the weather changes, I’m just pointing out the power grab and the stench of the elites who promote it without having a clue. That clue is actual science and that we are watching their do as I say, not as I do attitude.
Make movies and go away. Because you are famous and get a lot of ass with 24 year old girls doesn’t make you an expert on anything other than pretending to be someone else as a spectacle for us to watch.
Biden effectively said that a career criminal who died of a fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest dwarfs the most iconic figure in the civil rights movement, presumably because Floyd’s death was exploited as a pretext for hundreds of riots, $billions in property damage, and the War on Police that caused the ongoing explosion of violent crime.
But Democrats voted for Biden anyway. The rest is unfolding history.
Actually, from the Democrat viewpoint, Biden is right. Floyd is the more important figure. According to our state religion under Democrat rule (i.e., critical race theory), focusing on content of character instead of color of skin is racist. George Floyd is the role model they have in mind for blacks, not MLK.
Let’s look at who Floyd really is.
Star Parker, African American thought leader puts it better than I can:
On Aug. 28, 1963, King delivered one of the great speeches in American history, popularly known as the “I Have a Dream” speech. It is a speech that must be dusted off and studied anew today, because it contains the very message that our nation sorely needs to hear and digest now.
It’s a message that has been tragically lost and buried and replaced with great and destructive distortions.
Two things jump out when reading through that speech: One is how this black preacher captured in his words that day the heart and soul of America. Second, how King’s great message that day stands in total contrast to the rhetoric peddled by today’s progressives as the remedy to our racial strife.
The indictment of the woke movement is that America is the problem. King offered up America as the solution. He talked about the “magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.”
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’”
The problem, as King explained, is not America or the eternal truths that were brought to bear in its founding. The problem was the failure of the nation to live up to the challenges of its great founding principles.
That was the heart of King’s message that day. He appealed to the nation to realize the dream of its Founding Fathers, not to crush it and bury it, as we hear today.
The problem is not white people. “The marvelous new militancy … must not lead us to a distrust of all white people,” he said. And, of course, the most memorable and oft-quoted line of the speech, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
What has happened instead? Where has this great message of King gotten lost? In the name of racial justice, our race campaigns today are defined by selection and placement based on race, based on the color of skin, and not based on the content of character, as King implored the nation to do.
I haven’t said much because the failure of the last year is the same for everyone of his 47 years in congress. Even Obama warned us that he would F**k things up. Well, here you go. I’ll have more to say soon.
I watched everyone lose their fucking minds every time Trump breathed. Now, CNN and MSNBC can’t buy ratings because he is gone. Our jobs, borders, economy, respect, direction and everything else is in the crapper now.
Elections have consequences and I’m not going to let those who stole the election forget who they put in.
From Don Surber:
The latest CBS poll shows Biden’s disapproval is 44%.
That is a tad higher than most polls. The Real Clear Politics average had it at 41.6%.
What makes the CBS poll stunning is that it made public how many Biden voters disapprove.
That is a shade under one-in-five of Biden’s 81 million ballots abandoning him.
That is 16 million ballots.
Oh, 6% of Trump’s 75 million voters approve of Biden.
But that means that in the great do-over of life, Trump would get 85 million votes and Biden would get a shade under 70 million.
Of course, that is not how things work. A presidential term lasts 4 years. And these are going to be the longest 4 years of his life. The press will make sure of that.
Michael Goodwin of the New York Post called him a dud man walking.
Goodwin wrote, “Evidence that the public is giving up on Biden came with a new Quinnipiac poll finding that just 33% of voters approve of his performance. Q polls had the approval number at 50% in February and 40% in September.
Adjusting the facts to fit the predetermined outcome she’d already decided with the 100,000 kids in hospitals with Covid. How are we going to trust any further decision? Actually, we can trust that it will be on the wrong side of right and the law.
Enjoy, there are a lot more out there.
Now, how did she get on the court in the first place? That is why I added #assholes to the tags.
Of course it is. It always was. It doesn’t make vaxx money though, nor does it allow governments to pass crappy laws and control the population with fear and scare tactics. It is good to know that you can prevent it or be cured if you catch it.
Well, here it is. Decide for yourselves if you want myocarditis or thrombosis from the jab, or protection from Covid. You can order it from Amazon last time I checked.
Don’t believe the MSM, the government, Fauci, Gates, NIH, WHO, CDC, Fake book, Social Media, Google, Big Pharma or anyone else who stands to make money off of this.
Story begins here:
When it comes to the treatment of COVID-19, many Western nations have been hobbled by the politicization of medicine. Throughout 2020, media and many public health experts warned against the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), despite the fact that many practicing doctors were praising its ability to save patients. Most have been silenced through online censorship. Some even lost their jobs for the “sin” of publicly sharing their successes with the drug.
Another decades-old antiparasitic drug that may be even more useful than HCQ is ivermectin. Like HCQ, ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential drugs, but its benefits are also being ignored by public health officials and buried by mainstream media.
Ivermectin is a heartworm medication that has been shown to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication in vitro. In the U.S., the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has been calling for widespread adoption of Ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and for the treatment of all phases of COVID-19.
In the video above, Dr. John Campbell interviews Dr. Tess Lawrie about the drug and its use against COVID-19. Lawrie is a medical doctor and Ph.D. researcher who has done a lot of work in South Africa.
She’s also the director of Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd., which is based in the U.K., and she helped organize the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel and the International Ivermectin for COVID Conference, held April 24, 2021.
Ivermectin Useful in All Stages of COVID
What makes ivermectin particularly useful in COVID-19 is the fact that it works both in the initial viral phase of the illness, when antivirals are required, as well as the inflammatory stage, when the viral load drops off and anti-inflammatories become necessary.
According to Dr. Surya Kant, a medical doctor in India who has written a white paper on ivermectin, the drug reduces replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by several thousand times. Kant’s paper led several Indian provinces to start using ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and as treatment for COVID-19 in the summer of 2020.
In the video, Lawrie reviews the science behind her recommendation to use ivermectin. In summary:
- A scientific review by Dr. Andrew Hill at Liverpool University, funded by the WHO and UNITAID and published January 18, 2021, found ivermectin reduced COVID-19 deaths by 75%. It also increased viral clearance. This finding was based on a review of six randomized, controlled trials involving a total of 1,255 patients.
- Lawrie’s meta-analysis, published February 8, 2021, found a 68% reduction in deaths. Here, 13 studies were included in the analysis. This, she explains, is an underestimation of the beneficial effect, because they included a study in which the control arm was given HCQ.Since HCQ is an active treatment that has also been shown to have a positive impact on outcomes, it’s not surprising that this particular study did not rate ivermectin as better than the control treatment (which was HCQ).
- Adding two new randomized controlled trials to her February analysis that included data on mortality, Lawrie published an updated analysis March 31, 2021, showing a 62% reduction in deaths.When four studies with high risk of bias were removed during a subsequent sensitivity analysis, they ended up with a 72% reduction in deaths. Sensitivity analyses are done to double-check and verify results.
Doctors Urge Acceptance of Ivermectin to Save Lives
As mentioned earlier, in the U.S., the FLCCC has also been calling for widespread adoption of ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and for the treatment of all phases of COVID-19.
FLCCC president Dr. Pierre Kory, former professor of medicine at St. Luke’s Aurora Medical Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has testified to the benefits of ivermectin before a number of COVID-19 panels, including the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in December 2020, and the National Institutes of Health COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel January 6, 2021. As noted by the FLCCC:
“The data shows the ability of the drug Ivermectin to prevent COVID-19, to keep those with early symptoms from progressing to the hyper-inflammatory phase of the disease, and even to help critically ill patients recover.
Dr. Kory testified that Ivermectin is effectively a ‘miracle drug’ against COVID-19 and called upon the government’s medical authorities … to urgently review the latest data and then issue guidelines for physicians, nurse-practitioners, and physician assistants to prescribe Ivermectin for COVID-19 …
… numerous clinical studies — including peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials — showed large magnitude benefits of Ivermectin in prophylaxis, early treatment and also in late-stage disease. Taken together … dozens of clinical trials that have now emerged from around the world are substantial enough to reliably assess clinical efficacy.
… data from 18 randomized controlled trials that included over 2,100 patients … demonstrated that Ivermectin produces faster viral clearance, faster time to hospital discharge, faster time to clinical recovery, and a 75% reduction in mortality rates.”
A one-page summary of the clinical trial evidence for Ivermectin can be downloaded from the FLCCC website. A more comprehensive, 31-page review of trials data has been published in the journal Frontiers of Pharmacology.
A listing of all the Ivermectin trials done to date, with links to the published studies, can be found on c19Ivermectin.com.
The FLCCC’s COVID-19 protocol was initially dubbed MATH+ (an acronym based on the key components of the treatment), but after several tweaks and updates, the prophylaxis and early outpatient treatment protocol is now known as I-MASK+ while the hospital treatment has been renamed I-MATH+, due to the addition of ivermectin.
The two protocols are available for download on the FLCCC Alliance website in multiple languages. The clinical and scientific rationale for the I-MATH+ hospital protocol has also been peer-reviewed and was published in the Journal of Intensive Care Medicine in mid-December 2020.
The International Ivermectin for COVID Conference
April 24 through 25, 2021, Lawrie hosted the first International Ivermectin for COVID Conference online. Twelve medical experts from around the world shared their knowledge during this conference, reviewing mechanism of action, protocols for prevention and treatment, including so-called long-hauler syndrome, research findings and real world data.
All of the lectures, which were recorded via Zoom, can be viewed on Bird-Group.org. In her closing address, Lawrie stated:
“The story of Ivermectin has highlighted that we are at a remarkable juncture in medical history. The tools that we use to heal and our connection with our patients are being systematically undermined by relentless disinformation.
The story of Ivermectin shows that we as a public have misplaced our trust in the authorities and have underestimated the extent to which money and power corrupts.
Had Ivermectin being employed in 2020 when medical colleagues around the world first alerted the authorities to its efficacy, millions of lives could have been saved, and the pandemic with all its associated suffering and loss brought to a rapid and timely end.
With politicians and other nonmedical individuals dictating to us what we are allowed to prescribe to the ill, we as doctors, have been put in a position such that our ability to uphold the Hippocratic oath is under attack.”
During the conference, Lawrie proposed that doctors around the world join together to form a new people-centered World Health Organization. “Never before has our role as doctors been so important because never before have we become complicit in causing so much harm,” she said.
And it has worked in places and in the political Blue. Oh yes, the Ivy league does everything it can to filter out any remnant of God and religion.
And the young are the ones who are buying into this nonsense.
I don’t find it hard to express my contempt for these schools. I had to work with the graduates and they were as a group, some of the least capable employees with an undeserved elitist attitude. I learned to ignore them and find people who could actually do the work.
Now, it turns out that they are screwing the students who get financial assistance to enrich their coffers, assholes. I lived in the town next to Duke. They way overpaid for their education also.
Sixteen Ivy League and elite U.S. universities were sued in federal court for allegedly illegally conspiring to eliminate competitive financial aid offers to students in a price fixing scheme.
The suit alleges the conspiracy artificially inflated the cost of attendance for all students receiving financial aid and resulted in the overcharging of “over 170,000 financial-aid recipients by at least hundreds of millions of dollars.”
The demand for a class action jury trial, filed on Sunday in an Illinois federal court by five former Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Duke University students, seeks to compensate people who received financial aid packages that did not fully cover the cost of tuition, room and board from one of the 16 self-described “need-blind” universities since 2003.
The crux of the suit hinges on part of a 1994 federal education law called “Section 568,” an exemption from antitrust laws for colleges and universities that ostensibly don’t consider an applicant’s financial status while deciding admission, known as need-blind admission. This exemption allows need-blind colleges and universities to ignore century-old antitrust laws and collaborate with their competitors.
The lawsuit names Brown University, California Institute of Technology, University of Chicago, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Emory University, Georgetown University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, Rice University, Vanderbilt University and Yale University as defendants.
Spokespeople for Dartmouth College, and the Universities of Pennsylvania, Chicago, Cornell, Notre Dame, Emory, Northwestern, Duke and Rice declined to comment on pending litigation.
First, Fauci tortured Beagles during Covid when he was lying about gain of function. Now, he’s “studying” trans Monkeys (is there such a thing?) to the tune of $200,000 taxpayer dollars.
Put 2 + 2 together with this. A new “Ebola-Like Hemorrhagic Fever Virus” has been reported in China.
From Dr. Malone, mRNA inventor. “He died on Aug. 2, with tests finally showing that he died from Marburg, a “highly infectious disease that causes hemorrhagic fever” — and has a fatality rate of up to 88 percent, the WHO said.”
Marburg “is in the same family as the virus that causes Ebola,” which killed at least 11,325 people in the 2014-2016 epidemic that started in the same part of Guinea. The country was only recently declared Ebola-free after a brief flare-up earlier this year killed 12.
Marburg is believed to have originated in bats and is passed from animal hosts to humans.
“The potential for the Marburg virus to spread far and wide means we need to stop it in its tracks,” said Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO’s regional director for Africa.
The agency dispatched 10 experts to help local officials, who said at least 146 people had been identified as having been in contact with the man before he died.
“We are working with the health authorities to implement a swift response that builds on Guinea’s past experience and expertise in managing Ebola, which is transmitted in a similar way,” Moeti said.
Marburg outbreaks start when an infected animal, such as a monkey or a fruit bat, passes the virus to a human. The virus then spreads from human to human by contact with an infected person’s body fluids.
Sure, it’s a stretch to think that he’s done the same thing with the Monkeys that he did with the dogs, but for sure he worked with the Bats in Wuhan and helped create Covid.
How is this schmuck not in jail for murder, just for Covid alone.
I’ve figured out the key to stop Covid (along with help from Dr.’s Malone, Zalenko, McCullough and Yeadon. It’s not the vax, but a combination of vitamin’s, HCQ, Ivermectin and not believing what government, the Gates foundation, Fauci and Pfizer.
Now, we have to unlock the key to the next round from the CCP that is being unleashed on us, even if it isn’t Marburg.
I’ve learned to search the patterns, distrust the Government, the WHO, NIH, Gates Foundation, the MSM and to figure out for myself what needs to be done. I’ve learned that you should listen to who is banned from Twitter or fake book because they are exposing the people behind the bio-terrorism that is going on.
I just hope that whatever the Chi-Coms and Fauci unleash on us next is avoidable until we pick the lock like a bunch of Houdini’s while the above listed are trying to do the great reset and kill off a bunch of us.
Oh, I’ll get to the WEF and Davos as they are behind the great re-set, but that is another blog.
As many of you know, I have spent time researching and speaking about mass psychosis theory. Most of what I have learned has come from Dr. Mattias Desmet, who realized that this form of mass hypnosis, of the madness of crowds, can account for the strange phenomenon of about 20-30% of the population in the western world becoming entranced with the Noble Lies and dominant narrative concerning the safety and effectiveness of the genetic vaccines, and both propagated and enforced by politicians, science bureaucrats, pharmaceutical companies and legacy media.
What one observes with the mass hypnosis is that a large fraction of the population is completely unable to process new scientific data and facts demonstrating that they have been misled about the effectiveness and adverse impacts of mandatory mask use, lockdowns, and genetic vaccines that cause people’s bodies to make large amounts of biologically active coronavirus Spike protein.
These hypnotized by this process are unable to recognize the lies and misrepresentations they are being bombarded with on a daily basis, and actively attack anyone who has the temerity to share information with them which contradicts the propaganda that they have come to embrace. And for those whose families and social networks have been torn apart by this process, and who find that close relatives and friends have ghosted them because they question the officially endorsed “truth” and are actually following the scientific literature, this can be a source of deep anguish, sorrow and psychological pain.
WHAT SHE SAID
SOTOMAYOR: “Over 100,000 children” are hospitalized due to COVID, with “many on ventilators” BRET BAIER: “The number’s not 100,000. It’s roughly 3,500 in hospitals now?” WALENSKY: “Yes.” How did Sotomayor make it on the Supreme Court?
Justice Sotomayor falsely attests that COVID deaths and hospitalizations are at an all time high.
Justice Sotomayor during this oral arguments:
– Claimed covid deaths are at an all time high
– Claimed that Omicron has been deadlier than Delta
– Claimed 100K children are hospitalized with covid
– Said OSHA’s regulatory authority is a federal “police power.”

Justice Breyer claims, in Bidenesque fashion, that there are currently 750 million COVID cases in America.

Justice Breyer suggests vaccine and mask mandates would bring COVID-19 cases to zero, despite the data from so many countries making clear that these two “tools” do virtually nothing at all to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Of course if you look a couple of posts down, you see how stupid the Ivy League schools are making their students. I just thought that when these two went to school, the Ivy’s weren’t so bad. Turns out I was wrong.
After a career of working with these people, I knew that outside of Wall Street and Washington, they are fish swimming out of water.
How did these idiots get on the SCOTUS? Well, look who appointed them.
Instead, we have:
I’m amazed at the stupid we’ve become because of social media, the woke and the tripe that TPTB want us to believe. Oh yes, and those who actually believe the nonsense that is coming out of places like Washington DC and Davos.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one who sees through this shit.
Being woke doesn’t make you smart. Any hint of being elite and in this case being intelligent just got flushed down the pool for the Ivy’s.
The statement below was released about the biological male absolutely kicking ass in the pool, breaking women’s records and losing only to another gender transitioning walking mental case pretending to be a guy. It is a well known fact that this man was also kicking ass among men only a couple of years ago. Any look into the record books can see the difference in times between the two sexes in any event.
Lia Thomas finds support from Penn, Ivy League ahead of weekend meet
Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer who has been dominating the pool for the University of Pennsylvania this season, found support from the Ivy League and the school ahead of the Quakers’ meet against Yale and Dartmouth this weekend.
Thomas has been wrapped in controversy for her prowess in swimming competitions this season. She previously competed as a man for two years on the school’s men’s team, and her success this year renewed criticism over allowing transgender women to compete against biological females.
But regardless of the parental outrage and some annoyance from her teammates, Thomas received support from the conference and the Quakers ahead of the important tri-meet on Saturday.
“Over the past several years, Lia and the University of Pennsylvania worked with the NCAA to follow all of the appropriate protocols in order to comply with the NCAA policy on transgender athlete participation and compete on the Penn women’s swimming and diving team. The Ivy League has adopted and applies the same NCAA policy,” the conference said in a statement Thursday.

For those of us who know the actual difference between men and women it just doesn’t make much sense. Physiology, puberty, testosterone and body composition separate them.
That the Ivy League is standing behind this just goes to show you that you shouldn’t waste money sending your kids to these places lead by people who won’t recognize the truth.
Pretend all you want, but I’m not buying it. Basic biology and any DNA test will show you that there is XX and XY genes, that’s all. You can change your appearance, but not your sex.
As Forrest Gump said, stupid is as stupid does.
I’m sure some of the woke will do what they do best, try to silence me because I point out the truth and it hurts their agenda. Even if they do silence me, it’s not going to change any facts that are here. It just goes to show you that when the woke can’t win against facts, they try to shut down the conversation to hide the truth.
Kamala is wrong. It isn’t in the same universe as December 7th, 1941 or September 11, 2001. I think the president’s brain is an elevator stuck between floors right now, so I don’t really listen to what he has to say. It’s elder abuse what they are doing to him right now.
Nevertheless, the media (MSM), congress, those in political trouble and the celebtards have it wrong.
There have been many intrusions into congress including a bomb. None of that happened on January 6th.
Stop blowing smoke and get to reality like solving the supply chain, actually doing something to cure Covid, fix inflation, bring down gas prices, hell anything other than what they are doing.
Just like trying to impeach a president who wasn’t even in office when Covid was raging across the country, the assholes on parade in the house will prance around with the Media (MSM) instead of trying to solve important issues, say the supply chain or let the people arrested a year ago be given a fair treatment.
Facistbook will ban anyone one who actually represents freedom of speech about it along with Twatter and the other hate groups.
We need to stop this nonsense and get about putting our country back on track. They haven’t accomplished anything other than helping themselves to money for a year now.
And all the while, they say the vaxxed are protected from Covid. If so, why are they still getting it and are being infected more by the Omicron variant?
It’s the educated that see the bleak future that is the jab. Just look up autoimmune problems that the jabbed are coming down with.
Or, you could just see the list of soccer players (footballers outside of the USA) who are dying weekly from heart attacks.
Every time I see a person under 65 who dies early of a stroke or heart attack, I know it is the jab.
It’s just the next woke thing after racism, but the drinking fountain analogy is what the current government is trying to foist on us.
So I dedicated this to our current government, Fauci, the Jab, the CCP, MSM, celebtards, sportstards, freeloaders who could be working, social media and those trying to control the narrative on things like Covid, Election Fraud, race hustlers, mail in ballots and a lot of other 2021 crap.
There, did I cover everything? I think not but I’ll get to it in 2022.
Oh, and Epstein didn’t hang himself and neither will Ghislaine Maxwell.
Happy New Year
If you read this from time to time, sooner or later you get around to the facts I present on Climate/Global Warming and what is really behind it. If it offends you, either present me with facts how it is true (I’ll start with the movie Inconvenient (bunch of lies) Truth, or go away.
For most it is about money and control (kind of like Covid). I think Greta has been brainwashed and is being used by those who pull the strings. Knowing what I know about the autism spectrum, it is easy to do and is tragic that they’ve used her like this. They gave her a taste of fame and social media likes as a trade and there is no going back for her now.
Nevertheless, it provides me with meme material, so here it is.
This explains everything. It’s always a new scare or a threat that the world is going to end. It never does, nor do any of the predictions come through.
That’s a big claim, given the existence of Google and Microsoft, but the things that they’ve done pretty much prove it.
My blog won’t do a damn thing to change what they do, so I just choose to not to be on their site. My life is much better that way. Zuck is rich, I wish he would just go away, it never works that way though.
I have seen what social media does to others. It’s not pretty. It’s almost an addiction. It also turns people into haters and gossipers.
What people post is usually not who they are, rather what they want to project to others.
If I want to connect with someone, I don’t need fake book to do it. I would rather forget most of the people that it recommends to me anyway.
There isn’t enough energy for people to have their lights on with a couple of degrees of temperature change in states all but mandating EV’s.
I’ve always known that it is BS and we can’t live without petroleum products, especially the save the earth ‘tards who are totally unrealistic about the climate. Everything is a crisis that never comes true.
The fact is that electric cars and trucks are powered by petroleum created electricity.
The media crucified every statement, action, tweet and anything else Trump did for 5 years, including his primary year. These same assholes give a pass to a gaffe proned career politician. Almost everything they accused 45 of, 46 did it. 45 rarely did what they accused him of.
What’s ironic is that Trump had nothing to do with #FJB or #letsgobrandon. Biden did that himself with his actions and policies.
I lived through the Carter years. It doesn’t have to be this way. Our country was back on track a year after Reagan was elected. We will be back on track if they stop the idiocy that is occurring right now in Washington.
Oh, and the media sucks.
Take the jab or don’t, just don’t tell us how to live our lives and what we can or can’t do. That didn’t work in the 30’s-40’s in Germany. Learn from history.
With credits to Woosterman, 90 Miles, Knuckledraggin’ and others. Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas, not Happy Holidays.
In my travels, I’ve been to both Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. To me, it was the beginning and the effective end of the War for the USA. The European Theater started much earlier, but it was before our country was forced into the action.
I am related to some who fought in both Theaters. They were people who had to grow up at 18. They had the lives of others in their hands, and some didn’t know if they would make it through the day. Some froze in the winter in Belgium, and others were in the primitive jungles of the South Pacific.
I’m sure they didn’t like their situation, but they had a sense of duty and patriotism. To a person, they all said they did their job and rarely bragged and never complained. Times were harsh back then and they did a lot of things that allow us to be here today, speaking English instead of Japanese or German.
There are only 2 survivors from the USS Arizona left, both are 100. There are about 150 left from Pearl Harbor, also centenarians or close. That means they were 20 or so. They were adults making real life decisions.
Now, everything is racist or woke or a problem (recently Thanksgiving). I wonder how the squad will figure out a way to denigrate patriotism on this anniversary to enhance themselves.
Most of those at 18 today are to immature to trust them with life altering decisions. They are too busy being offended to grow up.
It chaffs my butt when I post stuff and I get ungrateful comments about how the enemy was treated or killed. War is about blowing stuff up and killing people to end it as soon as you can to save lives. I have little patience for the woke or those who are more interested in cleansing history rather than embracing what made us who we are (except for the woke).
I had one chap from the UK trying to trash the USA on a post like this saying that the Russians fought two fronts, but we didn’t. He was trashing the USA for helping out the Europeans. I mentioned the Pacific Theater and his commie ass shut up because of facts.
Soon, there will only be memories, something that the socialists are trying to write out of the textbooks. Why? Because it was times like this that made America great. Now, it just seems that the current group of politicians, celebtards, MSM and social media idiots are the enemy of our country. They are trying to tear down our country because history didn’t write itself the way they want it in their unicorn world.
As for me, I think back on the sacrifices made for me to be able to live the life that I had. A lot of people lost their lives 80 years ago, and a lot more would suffer for the next 80 years of greatness. I loathe those idealogues trying to take that away for personal gain, greed, money or power.
That group could be easily defeated by unplugging the internet and then they wouldn’t know what to do. I could write in cursive or make them use a map and they’d be chasing their tales wondering how to boil water.
Try to appreciate a veteran, or someone who is in public service like the police, the firemen and others who sacrifice yet get denigrated. I thanked a veteran yesterday at the store for his service. I think he was Korean vintage, but it doesn’t matter to me. I always say thanks for your service.
Of course it is. We already found out from the whistleblowers that Fake Book knew that hate drove most of the conversation. Here’s the other thing, people hate whoever is successful. Instead of trying to also be successful, they more than not try to take them down. It’s childish, but human nature.
Before you read further, I ask this question. If you discriminate because of skin color, it’s racism right? If you discriminate based on Sex, it’s Gender Discrimination, right?
We now know why Facebook decided to change its “race-blind” hate speech detection algorithm last year to allow more anti-white hatred.
The Washington Post reported last week that an “April 2020 document said roughly 90 percent of ‘hate speech’ subject to content takedowns were statements of contempt, inferiority and disgust directed at White people and men.”
They viewed this as a failure of the system because white people are supposed to be the targets of all hate.
Facebook spokesman Andy Stone defended the company’s decisions around its hate speech policies and how it conducted its relationship with the civil rights auditors.
“The Worst of the Worst project helped show us what kinds of hate speech our technology was and was not effectively detecting and understand what forms of it people believe to be the most insidious,” Stone said in a statement.
He said progress on racial issues included policies such as banning white nationalist groups, prohibiting content promoting racial stereotypes — such as people wearing blackface or claims that Jews control the media — and reducing the prevalence of hate speech to 0.03 percent of content on the platform.
[…] These findings about the most objectionable content held up even among self-identified White conservatives that the market research team traveled to visit in Southern states. Facebook researchers sought out the views of White conservatives in particular because they wanted to overcome potential objections from the company’s leadership, which was known to appease right-leaning viewpoints, two people said.
Yet racist posts against minorities weren’t what Facebook’s own hate speech detection algorithms were most commonly finding. The software, which the company introduced in 2015, was supposed to detect and automatically delete hate speech before users saw it. Publicly, the company said in 2019 that its algorithms proactively caught more than 80 percent of…
I recently heard that Keeping up with the Kardashians is over. I didn’t know that.
The reason is, I’ve never watched an episode, a clip from an episode, a review of it, or even thought about watching it, or caring.
I’m told that it went for somewhere in the teens in number of years that it aired, but I didn’t bother to look it up for this post because I’d have to care and I might find out something about it. I prefer not to know.
I loathe celebtards. I know how Kim got famous. I know what their Dad did for OJ. I know that Bruce thinks he can pretend to be a girl, but I’d already cheered him at the 76 Olympic Decathlon. There was a bio on him and his first wife as he was training for the men’s event.
I’m proud to never have been a part of this culture sewer ever, and plan to not be a part of the next.
Just like a person driving down the street with their seat belt outside the door sparking on the road. It signals, I’m stupid as hell, stupid as hell, stupid as hell.
I wish these people would grow up and get a life so they would stop ruining others.
I put in the about section recently that sooner or later you will get offended if you read my stuff long enough. I can eliminate the woke if there are any left.
With apologies to Ron White.
Of course, then I bring up the joy of bacon. I usually find it funnier than they do.
In these skits are just about everything that the cancel culture is against. My friends and I still talk in code from the album, “Is it Something I said?”
These are some of the funniest skits and talents there have been. Too bad the snowflakes won’t be able to appreciate it.
Here’s one final shot at childish and sophomoric, yet humorous comedy:
I leave you with this. Who knows what, “yeah, and it’s deep too” means?
If we had boobs, we’d spend all the time playing with them. If we were together, we’d use them as squirt guns and shoot milk at each other.
I read that only a heart attack or passing a kidney stone is as painful as giving birth. That means there would be only one generation and the population would end because we wouldn’t do it.
Even if it is more, a lot of these deaths aren’t really Covid anyway.
We’ve been had. It’s time to wake up and get back to life and stop being afraid because we were told to.
The Delta variant is running out of hosts to jump to, burning itself out.
We should just go after those who created it, those who perpetrated it, those who lied to keep it going and those who wouldn’t let us cure it.
Let’s not forget my 10 rules of climate hypocrisy so that you understand what is going on at these conferences:
- At the top, it is about money and power, not saving the planet.
- The people that believe it treat it as their religion. The ones I’ve met are the real science deniers. This just confirmed it.
- You can’t change the weather, it comes in cycles.
- Bonus: They are hiding the past where the weather was the same as it is now. It’s a version of 1984 Newspeak.
- Double Bonus: It is based on predictions that never come true, they just predict another one.
- Triple Bonus: when they debunk the current cause of global warming, they change it as they do the name (note I used the first name of this nonsense).
- Quadruple Bonus: Carbon Dioxide is plant food. It’s why they plant trees for an offset.
- Quintuple Bonus: Almost everyone likes warmer weather and farmers grow more.
- Not a Bonus: As with LinkedIn, when they don’t agree or lose the argument, they try to shut down the discussion and facts. I expect to lose readers at this point and doubt they’ll read any further, missing the point of the post.
- Also not a Bonus: It is an excuse for everything from racism to global cooling.
NOW THE HYPOCRISY, DON’T FORGET RULE #1
What a load of hot air! Joe Biden is blasted for making 10,000 mile return trip that’ll generate 2.2 MILLION pounds of carbon to attend CLIMATE CHANGE summit in Scotland after president was snapped in gas-guzzling 85-car motorcade in Rome
- President Joe Biden was criticized for his use of a slow moving, 85-car motorcade in Rome ahead of UN climate change conference on Sunday
- It comes during Biden’s 10,000 mile return trip on Air Force One to Europe, which includes a 92-mile motorcade tour in Scotland
- Air Force One and the four large jets that accompany it will generate an estimated 2.16 million pounds of carbon during the five day trip to Europe
- The motorcade is centered around the president’s armored limousine, the Beast and its decoy which sports a 5-litre diesel engine and gets about 8 mpg
- Each car generates around 8.75 pounds of carbon per mile driven – 10 times more than the average car
- Also included in the trip are flights for his conference team, security personnel and individual planes for The Beast and Marine One helicopter
While I’m being sarcastic, if your family and friends bug you and you want some quiet holidays, this will help your Christmas be less stressful. Nothing gets to me as an Introvert like holidays and fake feelings, fake fun and people. Anytime I can tone it down, I will. It’s much easier to take that way. Why do people have to act different just because they are told to?
Pick either side, you don’t even have to believe in it. Pick Biden or Trump and say how bad or good they are. Don’t worry, you will piss someone off either way. Use woke subjects like BLM or LGBT2+WXYZ or whatever it is now and take sides (see what I did there? Some woke person just got mad).
I hate the false build up that comes with the holidays. They’ve expanded it to before Thanksgiving now. I went shopping today and the Christmas stuff is already out. SMH.
I’ve posted about the scams here where they are trying to make us believe that the world is coming to an end. Some are in the list above.
Anybody with more than rice for brains can see that none of this comes true. They just move the goalposts and get the gullible to buy into whatever the scam de jour is.
Don’t be a sheep. If a politicians lips are moving, they are asking for money, they just use different words. If the media and social media support it, for sure it is a lie.
Equality of outcome is communism. The benefit of a degree from such a school would mean that you were the elite. Now, you don’t know if they worked hard and learned or coasted. The Harvard benefit is meaningless now.
Real Equality is equal opportunity. People will decide the real outcome no matter what Harvard says because human nature dictates that some will do better or worse than others. To not acknowledge that shows a lack of understanding of history and lack of intelligence. That is what Harvard is striving towards with this Diktat.
Save your money and go to a real school where meritocracy will give you a real education.
The College Fix reports:
Harvard panelists want ‘bold societal change’ which includes ‘equality of outcomes’
Panelists at a Harvard University event on equity last Friday called for “bold societal change” to eradicate the vestiges of racism and sexism.
This includes, according to at least one participant, ensuring “equality of outcomes.”
The Truth and Transformation Conference, hosted by the Kennedy School Ash Center’s Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project, was hosted by Harvard American Studies PhD candidate Mary McNeil, The Crimson reports.
McNeil’s dissertation asks in part “What critiques did [Black, Native, and Afro-Native peoples] proffer of [Massachusetts] as a crucial site in the development of an anti-Black, settler-colonial nation?”
Asian Americans Advancing Justice President John Yang told the panel “it is important to acknowledge that racial groups experience racism differently.” Eschewing the concept of equal treatment for everyone, Yang said “[T]hat’s not right, because the reality is, different communities have suffered in different ways.”
Yang backs efforts to combat alleged “disinformation,” saying platforms like Facebook and Twitter need to be better at it: “Let’s be clear: there is a campaign out there that is trying to distort a lot of what is happening in society […] part of it is on all of us to make sure that we are contributing to getting the right information that is out there” (emphasis added).
AAAJ purports to “advocate for an America in which all Americans can benefit equally from, and contribute to, the American dream.” Which means it lobbies for progressive initiatives du jour, like overturning former President Trump’s misnamed “Muslim ban.”
Panelist Eric Ward, director of the Western States Center, said all of society needs to “invest in transforming power structures to achieve aspirations surrounding equity.” He added that “recognizing systemic racism and sexism is key to ensuring that everyone can ‘live, love, worship, and work free from fear and bigotry.’”
Ward’s WSC offers “toolkits” for purchase such as that regarding “Indigenizing Love” (“supports Native youth, tribal communities, Two-Spirit and Native LGBTQIA+ collectives”) and “Confronting White Nationalism in Schools.”
Perhaps the most eye-raising statement was from panelist Halima Begum, chief executive of the Runnymede Trust, allegedly the United Kingdom’s “leading independent race equality think tank.” Begum said “non-governmental institutions, such as news platforms and corporations, are also responsible for ensuring ‘equality of outcomes.’”
I can’t lose any more respect for Harvard because I don’t have any. They just met my expectations that are already at the bottom of the barrel.
Here is the truth. We aren’t equal and never have been. Some are going to do better than others. Others will do worse. Some get better or worse breaks in life. Some make better or worse decisions and get the expected results. Actions have consequences. Life is tough. That is the only thing that you can count on being equal.
The current crowd of politicians is perpetuating their money grabbing policies by trying to divide the country on race, sex, ethnicity, gender (sex) and anything else they can. They are more interested in their longevity than the country’s. The two real classes are those in Washington and the rest of the country.
If they pitch one race against the other in classrooms, they are the racists. If they pitch one sex against they other, they are the sexists, misandrists or misogynists.
The communists used to divide people against each other by working class. The current crop has picked new guidelines, but ues the same tactics for power. If they can divide us, they can rule us. It is an election tactic.
There is a trope going on that the government should take care of everyone from cradle to grave. That just makes servants out of those who are subjugated and believe in this nonsense.
There are not really 2 parties behind closed doors, only in front of the media and big tech who are their accomplices and mouthpieces. They agree on almost everything that serves them.
I’m just hoping that there is going to be consequences for those trying to make a monarchy in Washington. We fought to get away from that to start our country and I hope that it can still save what is left.
I can’t wait for the scripted cure the world and peace for mankind speeches from the girls who don’t want to be cancelled for saying the wrong thing.
Here is someone with a backbone that should really be awarded the crown, a person with integrity.
And of course how I feel about Fascist Book:
Hold the hate, remember I’m sarcastic towards anything in my firing range.
For those with a sense of humor and aren’t woke, enjoy.
The Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security heard testimony Tuesday from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, a former employee of the tech giant. In a rare show of bipartisanship, a bloc of Republicans and Democrats joined together to demand action against the company.
Haugen, who used to work as a lead product manager for Facebook’s civic misinformation team, came before the Senate to discuss the company’s internal practices, with special emphasis placed on the ways that these practices disproportionately affect children.
Haugen explained, “I’m here today because I believe Facebook’s products harm children, stoke division, and weaken our democracy.”
She added, “I believe in the potential of Facebook, we can have social media we enjoy, that connects us without tearing apart our democracy, putting our children in danger, and sowing ethnic violence around the world. We can do better.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) observed during his opening remarks that predatory targeting and marketing practices by Facebook have “put profits ahead of people.”
The whistleblower said that during her time at the company, she often saw the company faced with a choice between “its own profits and our safety.” When these conflicts arose, Haugen said, the company “consistently resolve[d] these conflicts in favor of its own profits.”
Yes, but so does Congress and Facebook will just pay them off under the table and they’ll get their hands slapped. They will pontificate and then let it slide like they do with anything.
I’m surprised that it even got this far with as illiterate as Congress is about technology. Zuckerberg toys with them when he has to testify while the suits in Washington grill them with questions prepared by their assistants, but don’t have a clue regarding what they are talking about.
This also is likely to be a sideshow while they push their infrastructure pork bill to create socialism through when we aren’t looking.
As you know if you look a few posts down, I loathe Facebook, but they act like they are above the law and certainly above congress, especially the group that is in there now. They are the biggest bunch of do nothings except cancel culture people and promote everything our country doesn’t stand for.
Expect nothing and you won’t be disappointed.
Facebook and its sister properties Instagram and WhatsApp are suffering from ongoing, global outages. We don’t yet know why this happened, but the how is clear: Earlier this morning, something inside Facebook caused the company to revoke key digital records that tell computers and other Internet-enabled devices how to find these destinations online.Kentik’s view of the Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp outage.
Doug Madory is director of internet analysis at Kentik, a San Francisco-based network monitoring company. Madory said at approximately 11:39 a.m. ET today (15:39 UTC), someone at Facebook caused an update to be made to the company’s Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) records. BGP is a mechanism by which Internet service providers of the world share information about which providers are responsible for routing Internet traffic to which specific groups of Internet addresses.
In simpler terms, sometime this morning Facebook took away the map telling the world’s computers how to find its various online properties. As a result, when one types Facebook.com into a web browser, the browser has no idea where to find Facebook.com, and so returns an error page.
As Don Surber said, I made $7 billion more than Zuckerberg did yesterday.
Life is better without this site, especially for teenage girls it is reported. I hope others see that and help to eliminate insincere social media from their lives, but I doubt it. If they did, they’d stop trying to be like others (especially celebtards and sportstards) and be themselves
For me, it is an introvert thing. I eliminated it because I didn’t want to see what others had to say, or be connected to groups I have consciously left behind because of Mauerbaurtraurigheit.
As Elmore Leonard put it, “If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole.”
I wrote about the decline of the education you get there a while back and thought it would improve. I guessed wrong.
You can read about it in the link above, but the old boys club is wearing off. Their most recently famous alums actually were drop outs. They also did the best in life.
Now to the rest of the story.
Of course, there is the Covid madness. The supposedly smartest students have had to go to class online again because of……you guessed it:
These idiots have bought into the false narrative, despite the growing evidence (Israel, UK and the opposite in Sweden) that the inoculation (if it were a vaccine it would have worked) is the panacea.
Harvard University states on its website that 95% of students and 96% of employees are vaccinated, and notes that “COVID-19 testing requirements remain in place for every member of the community who is authorized to be on campus this fall, including those who come to campus infrequently. The Dashboard data is relative to individuals, living both on and off campus, authorized to participate in Harvard’s COVID-19 screening.”
From the same article linked above:
Data from Israel reportedly showed earlier this month that “’fully vaccinated’” people are 27 times more likely to be infected and develop COVID-19 symptoms than unvaccinated people with natural immunity,” and “‘fully vaccinated’ people are 8 times more likely to be hospitalized from a ‘breakthrough’ infection.”
WHY THIS MATTERS
Building relationships to take into the business world is the big benefit of going to one of these antiquated halls of ignorance. Harvard creates the biggest “Old Boys Club (including girls)” because of their interaction in group projects and going out together.
This just nixed the big benefit other than bragging that you paid too much to say that you went there.
We already knew in the real business world that outside of NY and Massachusetts, anyone coming in with a degree from Harvard meant that they were going to be a drag on productivity. Some finally came around to what real life teaches you, but we still had to put up with their nonsense until they either left or realized how the world actually works.
The students have shown an inability to understand sarcasm from one of their own, a Law Professor with some actually creditable certifications:
Adrian Vermeule, Harvard Law School Professor And Intellectual Iconoclast:
This story of cancel culture would be laughable were it not for the fact that it is so serious. It involves an attempt by four Harvard Law School student groups to interfere in the employment of, and damage the career of, Professor Adrian Vermeule.
This reflects an ongoing attempt by l******g students to purge academia of viewpoints that do not perfectly align with the social justice and Black Lives Matter orthodoxy. Much like during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, students lead the way in belittling and trying to damage dissident professors, with public shaming and institutional ritualized denunciations preferred methods of intimidation.
Here was his crime, tweeting this:
For example, as unsubstantiated allegations of widespread voter fraud spread following the election, Prof. Vermeule tweeted “ Lol the election isn’t over until Team Joe fixes up your ballot for you ” and “Kids, not sure if you knew this, but missing ballots have magical properties that make them visible only between midnight and 6am .” His post-election retweets included statements such as “ Even a Saddam Hussein had to make some pretence of not getting 100% of the vote in an Iraqi election … ‘Baghdad on the Delaware .’” And these examples only scratch the surface. Prof. Vermeule may try to play off his statements as a joke, but they amount to a pattern of promoting demonstrably false conspiracy theories. His statements are harmful to democracy and unbelievably divisive. To work at Harvard Law School is to be granted a platform and a level of legitimacy. Prof. Vermeule is abusing this platform in order to undermine democracy and delegitimize the results of the election.
Are you kidding me? This stuff is funny, and even if it’s not funny to some Harvard Law students.
The whole story is here, courtesy of Legal Insurrection, but in quick summary it shows how quick they are to jump to conclusions against their indoctrination and one sided beliefs.
WHY THIS MATTERS
An intelligent mind can entertain both sides of an argument without taking sides to fully understand the context. Whether or not they choose to side with one or the other would result from critical thinking and the ability to judge based on facts and history.
This current group of woke automatons rushes to judgement before the facts are known and worse, believe they are right because of where they are studying rather than being smart.
ENTRANCE EXAM DISCRIMINATION AGAINST MINORITIES
This takes two different paths. They reduce the entrance standards for some minorities who then can’t keep up. They are then stuck with a huge amount of debt and no benefit. They are having to take remedial courses and drop out of STEM studies.
Conversely, Harvard discriminates against those with the ability to qualify, but don’t have the proper heritage.
Adam Mortara, another attorney representing Students for Fair Admissions, accused Harvard of giving Asian-Americans significantly lower ratings for certain personal qualities, such as leadership and compassion, than other races, according to the Washington Post.
“Harvard has engaged in, and continues to engage in, intentional discrimination against Asian-Americans,” Mortara said.
A Harvard University dean testified that the school has different SAT score standards for prospective students based on factors such as race and sex — but insisted that the practice isn’t discriminatory, as a trial alleging racism against Asian-American applicants began this week.
The Ivy League school was sued in 2014 by the group Students for Fair Admissions, which claims that Asian-American students, despite top-notch academic records, had the lowest admission rate among any race.
He said Harvard sends recruitment letters to African-American, Native American and Hispanic high schoolers with mid-range SAT scores, around 1100 on math and verbal combined out of a possible 1600, CNN reported.
Asian-Americans only receive a recruitment letter if they score at least 250 points higher — 1350 for women, and 1380 for men.
Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, now at the Supreme Court, has the potential to reshape the course of affirmative action in the United States — for the better.
The case positions a group of highly qualified Asian-American college applicants against the university to which they seek admission, Harvard. These applicants allege that Harvard has practiced longstanding admissions discrimination against them in favor of less-qualified minorities.
Being woke is a crime of idiocy. You shouldn’t expect that of an institution heralded (not anymore) for their intelligence and education. Harvard has managed to pull it off spectacularly.
Now, at the beginning of the third decade of the 21st century, ‘political correctness’ on campus is taken for granted. But what I experienced then was less the direct coercive tyranny of leftism than a pervasive culture of capitulation and pusillanimity, with everyone from administrators to deans and professors to students and even the campus police looking over his or her shoulder in fear of censure by others. The fear was only justified on the part of those being silenced: at one Harvard event, Ayaan Hirsi Ali required stricter security arrangements than did many heads of state.
The affirmative action that Harvard implemented required lying. Departments looking for the ‘best’ person to fill a position were obliged to demonstrate, not that they had conducted a fair and open search, but rather that they had interviewed an appropriate percentage of women and other ‘minorities’. Since individual merit and group diversity are contradictory goals, the entire process was corrupt irrespective of outcome. At one departmental meeting, when the chair asked us to supply arguments for a member’s candidacy for promotion, someone at the table hooted, ‘Why bother with all this? He’s Hispanic!’ I was the only one who laughed at this eruption of suppressed truth.
There is more at the link above, but political correctness claims another victim.
IN CONCLUSION BUT PROBABLY NOT
Those of us who have been in the real world know that real world experience trumps a diploma. Sure, it will get you in the door, but those with the ability to adapt, lead and have the above stated ability of critical thinking are the ones you want to keep.
If they keep up this idiocy, those outside of the Northeast (OK, California, Portland and Washington – both of them are just as woke and dumb) won’t want them if they intend on surviving.
Save your money unless you have a Wall Street connection ready. Everyone thinking alike and acting with the same wokeness is of little benefit to the concept of an ongoing concern of a business, a FASB standard.
I’ve been tired of this since it started. I’ll bet I’m not alone.
These self-entitled ‘tards have ruined enough. I’m not going to stand for it anymore.
I’m torn between ignoring them because it is so stupid and stopping their push to ruin everyone’s life with their nonsense. It’s hard to believe they think they are right and it matters.
I realize there is no telling someone that won’t live in reality anything. They’ll have to wake up one day to realize how wrong they are about life.
Please stop ruining mine and take it somewhere else, anywhere but the USA.
I have nothing against them, except they always tell you they are vegan. I feel sorry that they don’t get to enjoy the bacon cheeseburger that I’m having tonight.
Oh, I won’t be telling anyone I’m not vegan. They don’t want to know that either.
I swear I wrote this in my journal this morning. I was grateful that I got rid of that ball and chain a long time ago. I busted ass for a long time to be in this position and it is worth it, I Gar-un-tee it!
Sure I’m older now and don’t have as many years left, but Sunday night doesn’t suck as much knowing that if it’s a bad one, I don’t have to hate the next 24 hours.
When I watched the NFL before it went woke, I used to go to Monday Night Football and get home late and not sober. How I made it to work the next day and was able to get through it is beyond me now. I guess I was young and it didn’t affect me like it does now, even though I gave up all my bad habits.
Just not being able to sleep, which happens a lot now can ruin the next day.
I think I’m better off older.
They sang 2 songs last Sunday, posing as National Anthems I read (because I didn’t watch). The Star Spangled Banner and Lift up your voice and sing (I think that is the name).
The ratings are down, they are bleeding fans because of Covid and being Woke. Did they not look at the Olympics ratings and why people didn’t watch?
I have always worked with the famous, the rich and the empowered, something I’m not proud of, but it came with the territory of my career. They were always tedious, demanding and self-entitled. I was always glad to be done with them when the job was over. Their entourage’s were even worse, with no real reason other than they thought they were meaningful because of who they worked for.
The rabid fans will stay I suppose, except those with a mind and a conscience. The rest will get fed up and bail.
I have been a season ticket holder to a team that has won multiple Super Bowls and has many players in Canton. I can’t take the kneeling and the other crap that is dividing our country and has nothing to do with sports.
These are the best paid in the country for playing a kids game, yet they feel entitled to tell us what to do and how to think. It’s the same for hollywood and the celebtards. They need to realize that watching sports is for fun and to get away from all the political crap. Instead, they choose to cut their throats even further.
Those with a brain are finding something else to do.
They are being stupid and should just play the game.
I’m going to piss some people off here, sorry but not sorry. I’ll go back to humor and sarcasm soon enough.
The USA has egg on it’s face over Afghanistan. We now look weak. No one is afraid of the strongest world power who should protect the world. We can’t protect anything now, and global tyrants now can start their plunder.
WHAT IS WAR
First, it’s not pretty. War is about killing people and blowing up things to stop the evil goals of power and control. If you don’t believe me, look what the Taliban are doing right now (they include raping though). There is too much history to ignore it. You win by unconditional surrender, or you waste time and money, accomplishing nothing.
You either fight to win (WWII) or chase your tail. Vietnam was won until we pulled out. Never forget Saigon. The Tet offensive was a success and the Viet Cong were all but defeated, yet we pulled out and an untold number of South Vietnamese were slaughtered. Guess what is going to happen to the Afghan’s soon, especially women?
The hostages in Iran could have only been held for 4 hours or 4 days, not 444 days if we had any guts.
Wars are won by those on the ground (figuratively and actually) who see the situation, take action and be decisive.
CONGRESS, THE CULPRIT
Congress took control because they are power hungry, or afraid of not gaining more and passed useless regulations hamstringing the troops from being able to execute.
The dumbest thing I every heard was them saying we need to win/secure the outcome. Who the hell knows what the outcome of a fight is until it is fought?
It is the get principle. Get in, get it (victory) and get out. You win or you don’t.
They each blame the other side (R’s and D’s) so they can put into place restrictions on being able to win a war (taking control out of the hands of the soldiers). Pilots have the enemy in sight, but have to call in whether they can take the shot. The assholes in Washington don’t want to look bad with any collateral damage to their re-election, or upsetting a Mullah who wants to kill us anyway. Those bastards don’t hesitate and rape, murder, cut off heads and will wait for centuries to win when they know the opposition is weak. Ever hear of death to America or that we are the great Satan?
If congress would have given the power to win back to the military, this didn’t have to happen. They used Abu Ghraib to take power and we got Benghazi and now Afghanistan as a result.
The other reason congress wants an unwinnable war is to divide the nation and create an endless bank for them to spend.
They have reduced fighting to win to wheel spinning and appearances.
Recently, ISIS was all but eliminated when we were allowed to actually fight to win. There is an example of how it works.
Congress never understood the tribalism or the reality in Afghanistan. It cost the USSR and now the US(S)A trillions, for nothing gained. The Taliban now has control. They hate the Western world and it’s a base for the next wave of terrorism. Where do you think 9/11 was hatched?
MORE INTERESTED IN BEING WOKE
China must be laughing at us now, with General Mark Milley as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff more concerned with CRT, the alphabet soup of LGBTWXYZ (I can’t keep up with the changes to this) and anything other than actually putting a fighting force together that can win.
We’ve shown (ask the soldiers) that there is no color problem, especially when you are being shot at. You want to have the best soldier beside you and be able to trust his ass that he’ll save yours.
Guess who is going to suffer the most? Afghan women. Where is Megan Rapinoe standing up for women now? Instead, she’s demanding more money for playing a kids game.
Or this loser
Look out Taiwan, you are next. Xi isn’t afraid of us doing anything now that he has bought off congress and know we won’t act. Putin has Hunter Biden’s laptop as blackmail to stop Biden from doing anything (ok, my speculation but think about it).
Don’t believe me? Look at Hong Kong being steamrolled into oblivion. They are being assimilated by the Borg that is China.
Are we doing anything about the island building in the South China Sea? No, it’s a military expansion while we twiddle our thumbs.
Japan is next. They have been pacifists since WWII and depend on the USA to protect them (like Taiwan). I hope they take a lesson from this and start arming themselves.
NO END IN SIGHT.
Congressmen and Senators have one main goal, to get re-elected. They don’t care about the country anymore and will sellout anyone for this goal. That’s you and me, the military, Taiwan, Japan, Europe and anyone who gets in their way.
Have they ever given up power once they voted it to themselves? Look at history to find the answer is no.
CAN WE GET OUT OF THIS
Where we stand today, the answer is no. The commander in chief is Congress, not the president. We need a leader, something I’m not sure we’ve had in a while. The last time we won on the world stage was when Reagan defeated the Soviet Union, without a shot fired.
The world was afraid of what Trump was going to do because he was unpredictable. That didn’t make him a great C-I-C, but there was a deal negotiated to not abandon all our equipment to terrorists. They now have the best US technology to use against us. I don’t know that I agree with either Trump or Biden about leaving. Neither wanted to win, but that doesn’t matter now.
Take power away from Congress and give it back to the military. Give us real leaders and soldiers. Quit worrying if we look the right way to some minuscule section of the population that dominates social media and develop a fighting force that doesn’t have to worry which bathroom to use.
It is probably the greatest game show created. It’s intellectually challenging. The others are generally tripe that targets those needing mindless entertainment or try to rip off Jeopardy.
I’ve realized that Alex Trebek was one of the best ever at this type of job and was significantly a reason for it’s success.
I recall him not liking Ken Jennings in the first couple of weeks of the 74 game winning streak. They eventually formed a bond, which I first believed was due to the huge ratings increase, but later led to their synergy around making Jeopardy great.
I, like everyone else try to beat the contestants and regularly do, with the exception of Final Jeopardy. Rarely solving this question keeps me from applying as I am about 1 for 15 in getting it right. I regularly beat everyone I play against (except my son, a bastion of knowledge), but fail in pop categories and celebrities. Those are issues I know and care little about. The combination of words, anagrams and Roman numeral addition questions stump me. Ken, Brad and James dominate there.
James Holtzhauer gave us a new way of playing, especially in how to bet. To this day, I love those who bet big. It’s not their money anyway if they don’t stay. You have to play to win and betting low is counterintuitive to winning.
Since Trebek, they have had a string of guest hosts. Some were great because they get what is the formula for success is. Others were fame seekers that had power in the Celebtard world.
The permanent replacements, Mayim Bialik and Mike Richards stood out as the best. They deserve the job. They were smooth, invested in the success of the show and didn’t try to be the reason people watched.
Honorable mention goes to Ken Jennings. He won the GOAT tournament and is forever ensconced in the history of the show. I knew he wouldn’t get the job due to other commitments, but he would have been a good one.
THE SECOND TIER
Bill Whitaker and Sanjay Gupta. Again, they didn’t try to be anything other than the facilitator. They were less polished than the best, but no one believed they were anything but a guest host. They wouldn’t have been good replacements though.
THE MAN WHO WANTED IT MOST, BUT COULDN’T PULL IT OFF
Aaron Rodgers wanted to be the guest host and made it clear. He tried, but is a Hall of Fame quarterback and not a TV personality. He stumbled too much, like Jeff Gordan and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in NASCAR. They were great athletes, but not good commentators. The show would have suffered under him.
AND THE REST, LOSERS, POSERS, CELEBTARDS AND SO FORTH
Dr. Oz has been on TV, but tried to be smarter than the contestants. He was arrogant as usual and not polished, despite being in front of a camera frequently. He cut off contestants and was rude to those who answered incorrectly.
Levar Burton tried too hard. He put on his TV voice and his appearance came off as a job interview rather than a host replacement. He was better than the rest below, but his fake enthusiasm was tough to take at times. He had a woke following that tried to get him hired via social media. The show would have suffered under him because he was hard to listen to in a very short period of time.
Robin Roberts was the wokest. She blatantly played favorites with female and minority contestants. A good host (and person) treats everyone the same, regardless of how they were born like Alex did. There is no justification for bias against anyone so this was inexcusable. She got the gig due to her other TV shows where she can spout her views with impunity. It was hard to watch.
Katie Couric should have been good. She answered “you got it” to every correct answer. I counted over 25 times on one show alone. She was the perky interviewer who failed as a newscaster, but her TV ability should have shown through better than it did. The ratings were poor under her and she is unlikable a lot of the time.
The same can be said for Anderson Cooper, teleprompter reader who is tedious to listen to. His ratings as a newscaster (and guest host) explain why he was so bad. Social media pilloried him. He was boring at best and clearly doesn’t have the intelligence to be a host for show requiring a 3 digit IQ.
Savannah Guthrie at best went through the motions. It was as if she didn’t care. She was disingenuous and dismissive when speaking to the players. She also was a “you got it” over doer. I thought she should have been way better, but didn’t seem to try. I am not a watcher of her regular program, but she was bad at the Olympics also, so I guess she’s consistent. She was the one I almost caused me not to watch the show for a couple of weeks, like Katie.
No one will be the winner because Alex is too hard to follow. He made the show great. It’s like having a famous parent and the kids rarely equal the star.
It’s a great show and has been around because of that. In a way it’s like golf, you can never beat it because you can’t know everything. Just try to beat the people you watch with and the contestants.
On a side note, I worked at IBM when Watson played. I talked to Sam Palmisano, then chairman and he said it was a marketing gimmick. The players never had a chance as the amount of computing horsepower behind the scenes was programmed to win at a certain task. Humans still are better to watch. Watson turned out to be a bust anyway.
I’ve written extensively about this, especially in Internet Road Rage. Go read it to see who these cowards are.
No matter what you do, someone has a beef (vegans will get me here, just another example) with whatever you say.
It used to be don’t talk politics, religion or something else at Thanksgiving or you’ll piss off someone in your family. Now, just like someone and you are one of Hillary’s deplorables (She gave the the best example, why I’m using politics here hoping to draw some ire from a commenter to prove my point. I could care less about her or her opinions other than it works).
Now, you can’t say anything on social media without someone being offended. I think it’s funny if they fall for it though because it just shows how shallow people are. Just go to Quora, hater (twitter) or Fakebook to find a large group of the clueless. That they are trying to censor people who don’t agree with them just shows bias and ignorance.
So, you can either be smart and blow off the idiots looking to be offended or trying to prove their point to the world, or just fall in line with the masses and get into it.
With CGI and the video game culture of limited attention span, combined with the need to shoot everything that moves, there haven’t been great movies recently.
You have to tell a story, build up tension, explore a characters mind and motivation to become emotionally involved.
I don’t need to write the cliche because anyone who reads knows it’s true. You can’t cram the development of what is going on inside of your mind into 1-2 hours of someone else’s version of the story.
Besides, in the race to become the most “woke”, most of the protagonists are cast incorrectly.
Enjoy reading. It’s better than wasting time on fake book.
Look below on why this stuff is happening. I can’t even believe what is going on sometimes.
I want to take the opportunity here to blame the media (MSM). The lies they are telling now are even hard to believe by them.
I got my ass beat a lot growing up. It was almost every day one summer. I’m pretty sure I earned and deserved every whack. I turned out just fine and respected my Dad even though he was the administrator of spanking.
When I look at the woke people, the cancel culture and the idiots on Twitter, Fake Book and other social media, I’m thankful for my upbringing. It scares the crap out of me that this group of ‘tards are about to run everything while a bunch of them still live in their parents basement.
The ones that made it out of the basement are bringing down the NBA, NFL, MLB and the rest of sports and entertainment (and life).
I also can get anywhere with only a map, write in cursive and can figure out how to fix just about anything without a search engine.
By far, my most popular posts are What’s it like to have a high IQ and this one, Euphemisms for Stupid. For a decade, this post was #1 worldwide in Google on how to call someone stupid.
More people have re-used content on this post around the world than some marketing campaigns by Facebook, and that is where a lot of it wound up it seemed (and I still have a happy life after I fired them).
To honor that post, I updated it today (there are almost a hundred creative ways to say someone fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down or that they couldn’t pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel) with this one:
Enjoy, and if you want to find out a way to say someone is stupid that you’ve never heard of, go get you some at the link above.
I have no dog in this fight except I don’t want it to cost tax dollars for a boondoggle like Solyndra. I’m not sure it’s ready for prime time even with the most fervent people.
Based on this study, 75% of Americans aren’t willing to spend more than $50 right now. The current price tag of the GND is $93 trillion so they haven’t reached a compromise yet. YMMV
I wonder if this is going to offend hillbillies? I wonder if that name is a cultural appropriation? What if it is a racist name?
Fear not, I have a strain in my family as southern as turnip greens.
I shake my head as I’m making fun of woke people using hotdogs, and yet I think there might be someone ready to lead a revolution to protect hillbillies now from discrimination. On second thought, nah.
Oh, and Happy Memorial Day.
