Seems to me the Dems carry the key to solve this whole critically important racial theory the left has;
Simply build POC separate but equal accommodations.
The Dems will be happy doing what they do best; segregation.
The ACLU will be happy doing what it does best; enforcing American communist liberties.
And the rest of us can do what we do best; ignoring these batshit crazy bastards and savoring the irony of the a-holes who have been hectoring us for years about our racism and their transcendent virtue reverting to their true Plessy v Ferguson form..

Narc's 10:23 is perhaps the most dishonest thing I have read since...well, since the last time I read something Hillary Clinton said.
It utterly elides what actually happened to Jodi Shaw and utterly elides the truth of the incident TM blogged about above.
The comments are equally mendacious and ignorant.
They are now fully Stalinist in their call and answer incitement to each other's desire for ideological purity.

MissMarple2

Just got off the phone with my local friend.

Down in her area, i a road she frequents, is a cinder-block house which has had a huge Trump sign in the front. She went by there this week and they have painted on their windows "Biden is a pedo."

The back yard, which is visible from an intersecting street, has huge plexiglass sheets with "Biden is a pedophile" and "Pay attention!!"

This is a working class home. I figure people are talking and getting information from friends, some of which is garbled, I am sure. But if this is showing up in that neighborhood, I think that there is way more discontent in the land than the eltway people realize.

Unfortunately it is now a 'name' school for students whose grades and test scores weren't good enough, even with a boost for race, to get in elsewhere. The Diva had a good friend from elementary school (private Montessori) end up there where she became an SJW.

I still remember when the girl asked the diva how come she could read words she had never seen before. The Diva answered that "my mom taught me". My experience is that 5th graders who read poorly never become strong students however determined the parents are that they attend a 'name' school.

Brother is currently at that well known bus school on the charles river. He likes to hang out on our back patio when in town. The smith sister really wanted to go to wesleyan u but couldn't get in.

My husband is half Ukrainian from Galicia with the first ancestors coming over anywhere from 1880s to about 1905 and half Irish with the ship manifest showing about 1878 from County Mayo. Just imagine what he thinks of reparations.

Yet I have been at emory events where black professionals have clearly been led to believe that all white americans presently here are descended from slaveholders. It's a historically illiterate assumption.

Once-secret FBI informant reports reveal wider-ranging operation to spy on Trump campaign

https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/once-secret-fbi-informant-reports-reveal-wide-ranging

But the memos' most explosive revelations are the sheer breadth of the FBI's insufficiently predicated dragnet targeting the Trump campaign, and the agents' clearly stated purpose of thwarting any Trump campaign effort to get dirt from Russia that could hurt his Democratic rival.

In re Smith: Of the Seven Sisters only Vassar and Radcliffe accept males. All the others (i.e. Smith) are Female only. Ironically, Frederick and his best buddy spent 3 weeks for two summers at Camp Explo on Wellsely campus.

BTW, a beautiful campus. I think Dave (in MA) drives by it daily.

Old Lurker

Henry "since when do crimes of fathers stick to children of the generation 150 years later? The very idea of reparations is unAmerican."

Particularly since what they did was not a crime when they did it.

So add Ex Post Facto to the observation.

Our society is being changed before our very eyes into something much, much worse than what most of our forefathers fled Europe to escape.

MissMarple2

I still do not understand why it is considered fair to allow transgenders to compete as females in women's sports.

Regardless of how they feel, their bone and muscle structure is determined by genetics and hormones releasing growth at puberty. Males have (on average) stronger and denser bone structure than females and their muscles are also stronger. This also determines height.

This is determined by chromosomes which are determined at gestation, as I understand it.
Why should an emotional or mental condition allow someone to compete in women's basketball or track? If I have a cat who has been raised with dogs and thinks she's one of the pack, does she get to compete in the Westminster Dog Show?

Jane

No swear Iggy, I think he’s an asshole too - but he’s no longer running the Amazon store. He delegated it to a much bigger asshole. Now he’s working on space.

Old Lurker

Not to mention that said reparations are intended to flow to many who are not even descended from actual, you know, American slaves in the first place, and even if from slaves somewhere, not here.

Jane

You have to take the back road to drive by Wellesly Jib, which I did a lot, as I lived in adjacent towns on either side of it for years.

Old Lurker

And how about that construction we are asked to swallow: "This country was built by XYZ but descendants of XYZ do not own a fair share of what was built long ago."

Forget "Black Slaves". Tell me any other advanced country that has physical assets that were not built by laborers at the bottom of whatever Totem Pole existed back in the day.

Manuel Transmission

To beat the dead horse a bit more, our propane runs about $2.10/gal being hauled on special one truck at a time landing craft. On the other hand, our electricity is only about a dime/kWh. At that price ratio propane is about 1/3 more cost efficient than strip heaters, but about three times less efficient when offset by the efficiency gain of the heat pump.

When we bought this place back in 94, the folks who rented it had suffered through a particularly cold winter and were freezing behind the old baseboard strip heaters and paying $800/mo. for the privilege. Needless to say I had no intention of following that path. The ‘summer cabin’ basis of the old place and its ~2K square foots size was enough to start with a clean sheet when we rebuilt.

Former House sergeant-at-arms Paul Irving told senators he did not hear from Sund until 1:28 p.m. and that no formal request for National Guard assistance was lodged until after 2 p.m.

The National Guard aren’t like a SWAT or HRT that are on ready standby.
It takes hours, if not days, to mobilize the Guard.

OL, ouch! That’s more like our gas prices. I pay about $3.70/gal for Super. On the mainland (Merica) it’s much less than a buck cheaper given the commies running Olympia. Not sure why the propane is relatively cheap, except we have 2-3 locals peddling it and they are fairly vigorous at beating the other guy’s price. Wait! Is that a free market?

Clueless Newsom has really stepped in it again. He has made Blue Cross the distributor of all things vaccine and they haven't got a clue what they are doing. Blue Cross is a major campaign donor.

Our room at The Liberty overlooked the Charles and the Harvard and MIT crews doing their practice rows. Impressive. There is nice coffee shop just off the Harvard campus and a number of the crew members were there one time when we went in. Big strong guys.

Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday visited a local pharmacy in Washington, DC, to highlight the Biden administration's retail pharmacy vaccination program and combat vaccine hesitancy.

2/ SHOCK: China claims that no member of Biden's team was forced to take an anal exam. Instead, CCP doctors only gave exams to Biden staffers who consented to anal penetration.

3/ REPORTED: Biden staffers who underwent anal exams by Chinese Communist Party doctors explain that they felt pressured to consent because they felt as though refusing the exam would be anti-gay/transphobic. ;)
