Once again George you've got to blame Trump and the Republicans for the irrelevance of the Republican party in California. They seem incapable of producing candidates that anyone will vote for. Now even Nevada County is lost to the Repubs as witnessed in the last two election cycles.

PaulE 1159am - what does this have to do with SB419?

"what does this have to do with SB419"

lol. Absolutely nothing of course, that's the essense of Emerianism. or lack of essense I guess. He does give me hope for strong AI in that it doesn't seem to take much logic to produce a comment that is (supposedly) produced by a human.

If you take as religion writ that all people are born exactly equal, I suppose that poor students are the fault of teachers...therefore teachers should be forced to deal with all students.

BTW, a book recommendation.

Not too bad, plus it has the advantage of flowing well unlike early 20thC. philosophy tomes.

George-what does my comment have to do with it?

Because there is no effective conservative values reflected in the voter choices that make up our Legislature. You can blame Trump for making the problem worse for those with your persuasion here in California because he is so profoundly unpopular here and the Trump stain seems to be permanent because none of the true conservatives, you included are willing to stand up to him.

Sorry, Punch 132pm, but Democrats Gone Wild! in California predates Trump. These are *your* people.

Hey, look at the bright side, they all believe in the status quo on global warming.

George Rebane

PaulE 132pm - Stupid was baked into the Golden State long before Trump arrived on the scene. And the problem in California is made worse for EVERYONE of any persuasion - rising stupid capsizes all ships.

That's Emery for ya'. Try and cast his own party's blame and shame on others. All that voter fraud has paid dividends there Emery. Let more illegals vote. Only a LIB can raise the dead.(at least on election night) OH the wonders that can be done when on line voting gets here.

Now the schools will have a new hiring position to be filled.
" Now hiring... Detention officer. Kevlar vest will be supplied".
Nope, can't send the little shits home, so warehouse them in a room of their own. All the trouble makers in one spot.
If things get a little out of hand a good dose of CS gas is dispensed into the room. (Emery and the gang would prefer POT smoke)

NAILED IT!!!! 🤣👍

Involving education, so I tucked it in here.

https://www.thefire.org/wrongly-arrested-for-racial-slur-uconn-students-sue-university-over-violation-of-first-amendment-court-order/

"Two University of Connecticut students arrested for using a racial slur last fall in a campus parking lot filed a lawsuit against the university today, arguing that the university’s dogged pursuit of disciplinary sanctions against them violates both the First Amendment and a 1990 federal court consent order."

I mean, think about that for a sec. "Arrested for using a racial slur".

Gotta love it. You might not be interested in the Blue Mob, but they're interested in you.

"That's Emery for ya'. Try and cast his own party's blame and shame on others."

Maybe the Republicans wear skirts that are too short. I mean, really, who can blame those Democrats.

California is fun in that it's a decent Petri dish for what might work, given single party domination...and the .gov oriented party at that.

Lotsa gun laws. Same firearms murder rate as adjacent states. Beaucoup homeless. Lotsa car rules, but generates lotsa greenhouse gas. Much water from sky, much water problems in cities. Humane judges, overfull jails. Single payer health care? No can do.

Luckily Team Blue provided a bunch of good ocean ports and nice beaches.

The number of kids in private schools, home schooling and folks with school-aged kids leaving the state will increase. I feel sorry for the ones left behind in these so-called learning institutions.
Bedlam, more like.

George was "Stupid was baked into the Golden State" When the Republicans elected the Swartz Governor?

Don Bessee

We had a swartza, a black gov @ 909, I missed that. OY VEY! You must be so verklempt. LOL

When the Republicans elected the Swartz Governor?

When the voters of CA elected Swartz Governor?

"When the voters of CA elected Swartz Governor?"

Good point, as he outpolled Bustamante by a lot of votes.

A peculiar sort of Republican. Anti-wall, even back in the day. Pro-universal healthcare.

The funny thing is that now that the Democrats have morphed into the Blue Mob, poor Schwarzenegger would be castigated as hopelessly right wing, even Reich Wing, if he ran for office in California at this point. There's just no pleasing some people.

As for Arnold, like the paid Bernie staffer sez:

"“[The] greatest way to break a fucking billionaire of their privilege and their idea that their superior, go and break rocks for 12 hours a day. You’re now a working class person and you’re going to fucking learn what the means, right?”"

Year Zero is a real thing. I'm afraid that not even the 420th Volunteers will be spared:

"“Gulag,” Jurek quipped with a laugh, before adding: “Liberals get the fucking wall first.”"

In Blue Mob America, our local Democrats would likely learn what the Mensheviks found out.

While I consider him a fool I wish no particular ill will towards the creator of "Emerianism", nevertheless I can't help but chuckle at him trying to reason with Blue Mob™ when they finally come for him….."but, but, but……I didn't vote for Obama the second time!"

“You can blame Trump for making the problem worse for those with your persuasion here in California because he is so profoundly unpopular here and the Trump stain seems to be permanent because none of the true conservatives, you included are willing to stand up to him.”

Please George, save us from ourselves. Oh please! You were supposed to keep us in line. You were supposed to be the mean firm but kind adult in the room to keep the inmates from taking over the asylum. Who is going to clean up the mess and set boundaries for us? It’s all your fault, George. All of this could have been avoided if you had just stood up to Trumpf.

Kinda on topic under Dumb and Dumber.

Ethnic Studies 101: Playing the Victim

First paragraph: On November 27, 2019, Harvard University denied tenure to an ethnic-studies professor specializing in Dominican identity. Students and faculty at Harvard and across the country sprung into protest mode. The failure to tenure Lorgia García Peña, they said, resulted from Harvard’s racism. NBC Nightly News, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and other outlets covered the controversy from the same angle.

Last Paragraph: This backlash against meritocracy is the least of the problems created by the diffusion of the ethnic-studies worldview, however. Its proponents are injecting paranoia and hatred into the body politic, making civil harmony ever more elusive, and rendering the embattled American ideal of a colorblind society impossibly quaint.

New California bill would require schools to teach about “causes and effects of climate change”

"Because the bill would impose new duties on school districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program," the bill states.

A study published in the scientific journal Nature Climate Change earlier last year found that it is possible for children to "inspire adults towards higher levels of climate concern, and in turn, collective action."

re BillT 931am - unionized public schools long ago became outlets for Collectivist Propaganda Central, this is just another example of progressives' progress in achieving their mind-molding objectives.
