(A brief comment for this week.)


"Climate change is essentially a boutique issue. It's almost like an accessary for western liberal politicians to flaunt how much they care, while actually doing nothing about the people in the jurisdictions for which they're actually responsible." -- Mark Steyn, on the Fox News show, "Tucker Carlson Tonight," April 22, 2019.

Education and Propaganda

. Dot "Black Students Strike for Free Food, Housing." Turns out, a lot of folks don't like equality. Blacks want affirmative action . . . forever.
. Dot "Justice Kavanaugh and GMU Snowflakes."
. Dot "U.S. History Textbook Portrays Trump as Mentally Ill, Racist." When "education" become propaganda.
. Dot "Manufactured Racial Tension and No Whites Allowed 'Listening Sessions' at Wake Forest." Oh goodie -- attendance requirements based on race at meetings.
. Dot "Many University Campuses Are Playgrounds for Insanity."
. Dot "Ilhan Omar Gives Talk to Elementary School Students . . . Parents Not Allowed to Attend!" Big red flag!
. Dot "Campus Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Be Offensive." But what is not offensive to some is offensive to others. So, basically, the idea is to shut up.
. Dot "WATCH: Students Dance Around, Mock Cemetery for the Unborn: 'Look, There's Mine Right There!'" The future is bleak for a culture that has no respect for life.
. Dot "High School Mulls Removing George Washington Murals Because They 'Traumatize' Students." I had no idea today's students are such weaklings and wimps. They can't even look at a mural? That's embarrassing!
. Dot "California Wants to Ban Schools from Suspending Pupils for Disruptive Behavior Because It's 'Racist'." We are learning that everything is racist.
. Dot "MSNBC Praises Teen Who Protests against Climate Change -- by Skipping School for 11 Weeks." Who's teaching kids the climate hoax is real? And look who's praising the kids for skipping school. Outrageous.

Global-Warming Nonsense and the Leftist Environmental Movement

. Dot "'Two Days before the Day after Tomorrow': Here Are Some of the Worst Global Warming Predictions Pushed by . . . the Experts."

Government Run Amuck

. Dot "Pastors Face Orders to Watch if Parents Deprive Kids of 'Warmth'."

. Dot "Oregon Bill Would Give Illegal Aliens Driver's Licenses, Possible Voting Rights." We are witnessing the death of our sovereignty.
. Dot "Dallas DA Says He Won't Prosecute 'Low-Level' Crimes Like Theft and Felony Drug Possession." But wait! Isn't a district attorney supposed to uphold laws? Of course! The DA doesn't have authority to ignore laws of his choosing.
. Dot "'Soylent Green'? State Poised to Legalize Human Composting." Would you approve?
. Dot "'Orwellian': Coin Celebrating LGBTQ Enters Circulation." There's a word for this: Propaganda.
. Dot "78-Year-Old Veteran Sent to Prison, Fined $130K for Digging Ponds on Property Under Obama EPA Ruling." Outrageous.
. Dot "California Wants Restaurants to Tack an Additional 1 Percent Fee onto Customers' Bills in an Effort to Combat Climate Change." Or you could throw the 1 percent directly into the ocean. The effect would be about the same.
. Dot "Carter Page: Interview by Mueller Like 'Guantanamo Bay'."

. Dot "Byron York: The Personal Cost of the Trump-Russia Investigation." Democrats don't care if innocent people have been harmed. Or even if they've been grievously harmed. Nothing is more important to Democrats than trying to bring down President Trump. The country has been grievously harmed! Democrats don't care.
. Dot "Kushner: You Know What Did More Harm than 2016's Russian Interference." It is not clear to me that Russia hacked the DNC. There's evidence it did not!

. Dot "Joe Biden Announces 2020 Run : 2020 Candidate Profiles." You want him president?
. Dot "Biden's Presidential Campaign Kickoff a Shameless Stunt."
. Dot "Byron York: When Did Mueller Know There Was No Collusion?" I believe he knew on Day 1 of his "investigation." He was working to abet a coup d'etat.

Great Wisdom

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." -- Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931.

Smiley Face


Your Duck Is Dead

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.

"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took him out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1,500!" she cried. "$1,500 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $1,500."
