our hotel in sydney is the Marriott and they have a new pitch man for the hotel when you turn on the Info Tv Channel---Mitt Romney. it is odd how I now have such anegative visceral reaction upon seeing him. i think the description of him in that Conrad Black column was great---a well oiled weather vane.

Two reports on the health of elementary school pupils make it to the headlines simultaneously: Duisburg is experiencing problems with the German language, the children in Berlin have lots of other problems.
Affected are Duisburg and Berlin. While the language proficiency was the main problem in the Ruhr region, the children in Berlin showed a series of motor skills problems. According to a report by RP Online, less and less children speak good German in Duisburg. The percentage of children speaking fluent German during the entry examination was just 8,2% city-wide. 16,4% of the new first-graders speak no German at all.
The reason is the increasing share of migrant children. Half (49,9%) the children examined in Duisburg has German as mother tongue. 50,1% of the children speak a different language at home. In some neighborhoods, like Duisburg-Marxloh, 74,7% of the children don't speak German at home.
This has caused a delay in the examinations, since the parents don't speak German and aren't able to cooperate with the examiners, writes the RP. On a similar note, motor skills and behavioral problems are rampant.
Children from Arab families are affected the most, even when they previously attended a kindergarten for two years.

The most bizarre passage in the Green New Deal is the admission that after they've junked every car in America, replaced every power plant, and renovated every single building within the space of a decade, they might not get around to slaughtering all the cows by their deadline.

Jack,

I am trying to ignore her (difficult because the press quotes her every inane utterance) BUT when she puts something in writing that is positively ridiculous AND dangerous, I think we need to speak up.

CNN Offers Criticism-Free Praise for Green New Deal; Compares AOC, Markey to Gaga, Cooper

CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.

If those things didn’t convince you that this four-minute-plus segment was a trainwreck, Baldwin sat in awe as Weir quipped that the Green New Deal was a love story for Earth, like A Star Is Born where Bradley Cooper could play Senator Ed Markey (D-NY) and Lady Gaga would be Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Hey, clarice--there's a piece (rather nasty) in Esquire I just saw today trying to account for the effects of the political divide in DC on the social divide (parties, bars, restaurants), and among other things the author says this:

...many younger Trump staffers have discovered these safe spaces: the Line, a hip new hotel in Adams Morgan; Union Trust, a bar in a former bank near the White House that for Trumpsters has replaced traditional area spots like the Hay-Adams; and the Salt Line and Mission, two bars in Navy Yard, a newly developed Southeast D. C. neighborhood abutting the Anacostia River that has attracted many out-of-town Trump aides and is often looked down upon by old-timers as D. C.’s version of Manhattan’s frat-boy-friendly Murray Hill.

I have had lunch in the restaurant where AOC worked, although it was several years ago, and likely before she worked there. It's now out of business. It was called Coffee Shop, and it was one of those hipster-ironic places, in that the decor, formica counters, fifties turquoise upholstery, dinette type furniture, was made to look like a coffee shop from the fifties. The food was quite good. It was right near Union Square on 15th Street. I'm sure at night it was more of a bar scene, but for lunch it was just a nice restaurant. Most of the wait staff looked like out of work actors in their twenties.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is stopping Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative court’s views on abortion rights.

The justices say by a 5-4 vote that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four liberals in putting a hold on the law, pending a full review of the case.

============================
So, has Roberts grown in office, was he a closet liberal who lied to get confirmed, or is he being blackmailed?

Last year, about two hundred red haired Israeli Jews gathered for a conference at Kibbutz Gezer in Israel. While that is a nice size group, there were, apparently, many hundreds who were interested in attending, but unable to do so. Those who attended the conference shared stories, sang a popular children’s song called “I am a Redhead,” and reportedly had a good time. Gezer, by the way, is Hebrew for carrot.

And then there is Stav Shaffir, the not even thirty year old Member of the Knesset whose hair is vibrant red. Stav, by the way, is Hebrew for Autumn.

There is even Hebrew slang for redheads: gingi (Jeenji) for a male and gingit (Jeenjit) for a female, both Hebraicized corruptions of the English ginger.

What’s with Jews and red hair?

I have a book someone brought back for me from Australia. There's a passage in it that describes what's probably still a certain sentiment there: "Two Wongs don't make a White."

I was watching a video from this summer that Lauren Southern shot in Sidney while she and Stefan Molyneaux were doing a speaking tour. Basically, she was told by a police sergeant that she couldn't walk up the road past a mosque. He was more or less threatening to arrest HER for breach of peace. Peace Not Be Upon Her, it seems.

Sydney is packed with foreigners. They remain a very friendly country, but my take is that as a Nation they are really sick and tired of immigration, legal or otherwise, but on the other hand I think with their severe weather (ie droughts, floods, and heat waves) they are much more believers of Global Warming than any of us in the states.
