YES!!!! A fresh ammo box....Thanks Doc.....
Let's take a shot across the LIBs bow.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/garland-illegal-border-crossings-crime
"
Merrick Garland, President Biden’s pick to lead the Justice Department, said Monday he "hadn’t thought" about whether illegal entry at the southern border should remain a crime.

Garland was asked by Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., if he believed "that illegal entry at America’s border should remain a crime?"
"Well, I haven’t thought about that question. I just haven’t thought about that question," Garland responded. "I think the president has made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. I don’t know of a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question. I hadn’t thought about it."

This clown has plenty of "I don't know" in his answers to EVERYTHING.

And this is the SOB "O"loser wanted on the Supreme Court?
GOD help us if Biden gets a chance.

FYI: According to the New England Journal of Medicine the actual number of Covid-19 infections is far worse than the statistics show. This is because only 1 in 4.6 infections is reported. Many cases are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms and aren't diagnosed as Covid and not included in the statistics. This suggests that some kind of herd immunity could be in the population already. The rest home death reporting issues in New York and elsewhere suggest that the actual Covid related death toll is much higher than the 1/2 million threshold recently crossed.

On George's sandbox intro: It must be difficult after giving your fealty to a callous, cruel, and mean spirited man (DJ Trump), to understand why the current administration sought to recognize the tragedy that is Covid-19 rather than dismiss it, as did the previous administration, in an effort to disguise their abject failure to properly respond to the pandemic. Your cynicism demonstrates how politicized your thinking is.

Daily Quotes. Buck made the list, the last quote. Even he, the NYC born and raised kid, is thinking about moving to Florida. Had a BLM protest and mayhem on the streets like right outside. Q of L issues. NY restaurants are open there in Florida, inside, including the bars and libations establishments.... Anyway, quotes.

Insight: “Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.” —Milton Friedman (1912-2006)

Upright I: “This is some of the most horrific human activity that we have seen since the last century, and the administration has a responsibility … to convince the Chinese Communist Party not to behave in this way [and] to impose costs on them when they don’t. So to pawn this off as just a different norm or a different set of behaviors, that’s what the Chinese Communist Party says. That’s how they talk about this.” — former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Upright II: “To hear an American president talk about it in such a way that doesn’t connote all the seriousness with which this must be taken is disheartening, and I hope the administration will take it seriously in the same way that we did when we were in office.” —Mike Pompeo

Canaries in a coal mine: “[Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer] continue to treat the January 6 … criminal riot as an excuse to seize power, to control more power, to step on people’s Second Amendment rights, to take away their First Amendment rights. Now we’re hearing about a domestic war on terror. I mean, what’s that going to be? An excuse to go rifle through the emails and bank statements and personal messages of law-abiding Americans?” —Senator Josh Hawley

For the record: “I was so disgusted that Biden, on the anniversary of my daughter getting murdered, announced they were going to put all these gun control measures in place. [None] of those would have made a difference in my daughter getting murdered in Parkland.” —Andrew Pollack

Friendly fire: “That’s classic Andrew Cuomo. … You know, the bullying is nothing new. I believe Ron Kim and it’s very, very sad. No public servant, no person who’s telling the truth, should be treated that way. But yeah, the threats, the belittling, the demand that someone change their statement right that moment? Many, many times I’ve heard that and I know a lot of other people in this state have heard that.” —Mayor Bill de Blasio

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “I think at some point [Trump] probably will be allowed back on [social media] and probably should be allowed back on.” —Bill Gates

Actually, he dropped the nut: “I am offsetting my carbon emissions by buying clean aviation fuel and funding carbon capture and funding low-cost housing projects to use electricity instead of a natural gas. And so I’ve — I have been able to eliminate it, and it was amazing to me how expensive that was.” —Bill Gates justifying his hypocrisy

Braying jackass: “The bottom line is, Texas thought it could go it alone and built a system that ignored climate change. It was not what’s called resilient, and now Texas is paying the price. I hope they learned a lesson.” —Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

Non compos mentis: “We don’t want low wage businesses. I think most successful small businesses can pay a fair wage. … I love small businesses — I’m all for it — but I don’t want small businesses that underpay employees.” —Rep. Ro Khanna

Non sequitur: “Some of the comments I’m seeing on social media from lefties who hate Rush, saying they hope the cancer takes him away as fast as possible — it’s revolting to me. As much as we talk about Trump and misinformation, there is a strain of contempt on the left that also worries me. Why can’t people just say, ‘We hope that Rush gets better quickly’?” —CNN’s Brian Stelter a year ago (And who does he think fueled that hate, then and now?)

And last… “Let’s see a conversation between the people insisting ‘teachers just want to be safe!’ and the grocery store clerks who’ve shown up for work without fail for 12 months — including when we thought the pandemic was far deadlier. Ah, but they don’t have powerful Democrat unions.” —Buck Sexton

‘How Biden Is Using 500,000 COVID Deaths’
Democrats are pushing a "relief" bill that's long on politics and short on relief.

.....“Help is on the way, courtesy of former President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed that delivered multiple vaccines in record time. Some say COVID cases are dropping too quickly to be attributable to the vaccines. But daily cases reached an all-time high of nearly 300,000 on January 8 and dropped to less than 65,000 yesterday. Over that same span, we’ve gone from eight million vaccines to more than 64 million. If it’s not causation yet, it’s one heck of a correlation.

Even better news on the vaccines comes from The Dispatch: “One study found that Pfizer’s two-dose vaccine is up to 85 percent effective after a single jab, and that it doesn’t actually need to be stored in burdensome, ultra-cold freezers as previously believed.” And another study found it “to be 89.4 percent effective at preventing infections, meaning the vaccine limits most asymptomatic transmission of the virus as well.”

By the end of March, Pfizer and Moderna are likely to have distributed 220 million doses, with another 20 million coming from the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Between these vaccines and natural antibodies, one Johns Hopkins professor thinks we’ll reach herd immunity by April.

But by all means, Democrats absolutely must spend another $2 trillion, and they’ll use whatever milestones and emotions necessary to do it.”

RXC 5:07 - "It must be difficult after giving your fealty to a callous, cruel, and mean spirited man (DJ Trump)..."
I wouldn't know, dude - maybe if you at least looked up the word 'fealty' - just sayin'.
Even more humorous - "...to understand why the current administration sought to recognize the tragedy that is Covid-19 rather than dismiss it, as did the previous administration, in an effort to disguise their abject failure to properly respond to the pandemic."
And I had thought Biden had a 'plan' to end the Planned-emic.
Turns out all he can do is have a media event to dazzle idiots like RXie.

And of course - "properly respond to the pandemic"
Yeah - he should have done something we have no idea of and still don't, but he should have done it.
You really didn't expect any lefty that posts here to admit that Biden is full of BS with his pre-election promises of a 'plan' to deal with CV19. Biden has openly admitted that nothing will be any better because of anything he can do.
Another dose of Clintonian "I feel your pain".

Speaking of a "chip" shortage,, how will Dear Leader square the mining of rare earth materials here on U.S. soil with the ECO bastards and their militant anti mining? Kinda like building solar here.. VERY VERY toxic and "dirty".

But no one has told the ECO bastards just how toxic lithium is.
(and unstable) Those in the know,, sure have kept the self igniting elec. cars hush hush.

George Rebane

re Walt & fish - We must always remember that the "ECO bastards" overarching goals are embedded in Agenda21. In there it is made clear that their enlightened society of tomorrow will no longer have privately owned vehicles for travel and transport. Where you will be allowed to go, government transportation will take you. Today we are just witnessing the preliminary skirmishes to destroy the political and economic environment that enables us to still own ever more expensive and inefficient cars.

Daily Quotes

Insight: “All you have to do, is to see whether the law takes from some what belongs to them in order to give it to others to whom it does not belong. We must see whether the law performs, for the profit of one citizen and to the detriment of others, an act which that citizen could not perform himself without being guilty of a crime. Repeal such a law without delay. … [I]f you don’t take care, what begins by being an exception tends to become general, to multiply itself, and to develop into a veritable system.” —Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

Upright: “We use black power to create white guilt. My approach is biblical: How can I ask my Heavenly Father to forgive me if I can’t forgive my brother? … Many have died trying to get into America. No one is dying trying to get out. … What percentage of black must you be to receive reparations? Do you go to 23andMe or a DNA test to determine the percentage of blackness? Some American ancestors just came to this country 80 years ago, their ancestors wasn’t even here during slavery. Some black immigrants weren’t here during slavery, nor their ancestors. Some states didn’t even have slavery.” —Herschel Walker

Observations: “[Rush] Limbaugh’s devoted fans believed their values helped build and sustain America through wars, economic downturns and other challenges. They see those values under siege from a secular progressive generation that tolerates everything but them. Many had served in the military to defend once traditional values and the freedoms many now take for granted, as if freedom is automatically and effortlessly achieved. These people go to church and take their children to Sunday school. Some enroll their kids in Christian schools or home school them because they dislike what is taught in public schools. They believe their country is losing all moral standards, is becoming increasingly corrupt and in danger of extinction if things don’t turn around. Shouldn’t these concerns explain why they wish to issue warnings because they love the country and don’t want it to fail? Limbaugh was their spokesman in these and other matters.” —Cal Thomas

Food for thought: “People associate evil with darkness. But that is not accurate: It is easy to look into the dark; it is very hard to stare into bright light. One should therefore associate evil with extreme brightness, given that people rarely look at real evil. And those who do not confront real evil often make up evils (such as ‘systemic racism,’ ‘toxic masculinity’ and ‘heteronormativity’ in 21st-century America) that are much easier to confront.” —Dennis Prager

For the record: “The suspension of the rule of law … is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it. … Lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes.” —former Democrat adviser Naomi Wolf

Friendly fire: “[Andrew] Cuomo abused his powers to hide life and death information from the Department of Justice that prevented lawmakers from legislating — like fully repealing corporate immunity for nursing homes. That is an impeachable offense.” —Democrat New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim, who added, “The only way to protect the integrity of the co-equal branch of the state government, AKA the ‘People’s House,’ is to start impeachment.”

A trip down memory lane: “You know, I walked in when I was 21 and I got arrested. In those days, no guards stopping you everywhere. And they just got out of session. I walked in the back; all of the sudden I found myself in the chamber. I was stunned. I walked up, sat down in the presiding officer’s seat, guy grabbed by the shoulder and said, ‘You’re under arrest.’” —Joe Biden in 2007 about being arrested for trespassing in the Senate chamber

Then: “I waited for a vaccination appointment, and patience was rewarded. … I think it was the National Guard running the show. Very cool. Get it done, folks. Let’s kill this thing.” —Stephen King, who lives in Florida, on February 5 | Now: “It seems possible — likely, even — that Ron DeSantis provided rich, Republican-leaning communities like Lakewood Ranch with priority vaccinations for political gain.” —Stephen King on February 22 (“Stephen King is 73 years young. Two weeks ago, he got a vaccine against a virus that’s deadliest to people in his age group. That’s because the state of Florida is prioritizing those people. The elderly are the most vulnerable to COVID. Florida is vaccinating the elderly first. It really shouldn’t be a difficult concept to grasp.” —Jim Treacher)

Non compos mentis: “There are things, even if you’re vaccinated, that you’re not going to be able to do in society. For example: indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate. That’s because of the safety of society.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci (In other words, the only way to have a safe society is to have no society.)

And last… “Disney is concerned that ‘The Muppet Show’ is offensive. But filming where China runs concentration camps for Uighurs? Disney is okay with that.” —Senator Tom Cotton

‘Once-secret FBI informant reports reveal wider-ranging operation to spy on Trump campaign‘
Goal was to find "anyone" inside GOP campaign tied to Russia who could get dirt "damaging"
to Clinton, newly declassified memos reveal.

“Brock, the former FBI executive, said Wray's and Comey's effort to avoid using the word spying in the Russia case were simply semantics.

“What they are doing is using preferred definitions,” he said. “When we employ the investigative techniques used against Carter Page to break the laws of another country and steal their secrets, it’s okay to call it spying. When we use those same techniques against a U.S. citizen, it’s called an investigation."”

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

Talk about a threat to our democracy. No wonder the Lefties went nuts when AG Barr called it “spying”. They went full unadulterated nuts. It not spying!

Exit question: Shouldn’t MSNBC be taken off the air for spreading misinformation, aka, fake news? Or does that just apply to Fox and friends?

Barry Pruett

https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/special-election-gov-newsom-held-fall-gavin-organizer-lockdowns-california-small-business

It is very interesting that the state of California is failing to verify as valid nearly 20% of the signatures on the recall petition, but at the same time the percentage of rejection of ballots as invalid is way lower. And this is a question for George. Wouldn’t math dictate that the verification of valid ballots during a recall or during election should be substantially the same?

Barry Pruett

Currently, Nevada County is stating that they have a 15% rejection rate and connection with valid recall signatures. Only three months ago, Nevada County asserted that they had nearly an 88% voter turn out. The math simply doesn’t make sense, unless there’s something nefarious going on. Maybe George can shed some light on this dilemma mathematically?!

George Rebane

Barry 928am - If the voters' mentality and motivations were the same, then the rejection rates should be pretty nearly identical for the large sample sizes encountered for the various cohorts. But since it takes fewer valid votes to put recall on the ballot, the rejection rate may be a lot higher than for an election. The reason being is that the recall opposition is motivated to launch a false flag petition signing effort with rejectable signatories in order to bump the raw count and hope that the petition workers will stop getting more signatures. That will result in much higher rejection rates and possibly disqualify the recall.

Daily Quotes for Thursday, Year One

Insight: “With the exception only of the period of the gold standard, practically all governments of history have used their exclusive power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people.” —Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)

Observations: “Equality is a social condition. Equity is social engineering.” —Andrew McCarthy

Indeed: “Ever notice how protecting people from dangerous misinformation looks exactly the same as censoring true information you’re scared of?” —Frank J. Fleming

Belly laugh of the week: “Watching a woman put her mask on between bites of food and I can’t help but wonder how we survived so long as a species.” —Sydney Watson

For the record: “The authoritarian left has broadened out the meaning of incitement to include any verbiage that elicits strong emotions … so long as conservatives are responsible for such verbiage. Thus, it’s possible incitement to call people by their biological pronouns but perfectly innocent fun to wink and nod at widespread looting and rioting. … The establishment media are fond of saying that we’re experiencing a crisis of authoritarianism in America; they point to the criminal acts of Jan. 6 and suggest that right-wing authoritarianism threatens democracy itself. The far greater threat to democracy, however, lies with an authoritarian left that is now ascendant in virtually every powerful institution in America.” —Ben Shapiro

Upright I: “My ancestors were slaves. And my life as a young woman was a mess. Was my life a mess because my ancestors were slaves? I don’t think so. My life was a mess because I lived a wanton, irresponsible existence, defined by promiscuity, petty crimes and scamming the nation’s well-meaning but totally confused welfare system to the greatest extent of my ability. Did I need reparations to turn things around for me? Certainly not. I needed a wake-up call, which, to my great gratitude, I got, from a few church-going black Christians who told me the way I was living was unacceptable. I went to church, took back responsibility for my life and turned my circumstances around. The problem with the idea of reparations is it redirects attention away from exactly where attention is needed: on individuals’ personal responsibility for their own unique lives.” —Star Parker

Upright II: “Compensation for damages is a basic legal principle. It’s about personal responsibility. Individual A sues individual B for damages caused. Exactly what the damages were and exactly how B injured A must be shown in a court of law. Today, only a small fraction of our population has ancestors who were around before 1865 when slavery was legal. The idea of collective guilt, with no specific individual identified as causing the damage and no specific individual showing how he or she was damaged, doesn’t fly. If there is any legitimate claim of collective guilt, it is the guilt of original sin, which we learn in the book of Genesis. Every man and woman is imperfect and responsible for fixing themselves — and, by doing so, helping to fix the world.” —Star Parker

Friendly fire: “Multiple administrations have made the callous choice to lock up thousands of children seeking refuge in the United States of America. As long as we see people seeking a better life as ‘aliens’ instead of fellow human beings, our immigration system will continue to fail us.” —Ilham Omar

Non compos mentis: “Bold reimagination is so [important]. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.” —AOC

New Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told ICE that cost is no issue, and to cancel contracts and sign new ones without worry about the price tag, according to the email from ICE Chief of Staff Timothy Perry. Mr. Mayorkas said he is also pondering diverting money from the border wall “to backfill budgets later,” the email said."

re: Yes, we all want schools to reopen. Especially K-8. Yes, we all care about the children.

Interesting to see VP Kamala Harris stop bobbing and weaving for once and get into her rift about something she knows all about besides arresting parents of truant kids. How school closures affect or kids, even if it’s just for a few seconds, it was refreshing to hear.Still waiting for the teachers unions to tell Harris & Biden what to say. Politics trumps children and we all lose.

‘Kamala Harris fumbles when challenged on school reopenings in ‘Today’ interview’

“We know, we have worked on this issue for years, around the fact that by the end of the third grade, if a child is not at third-grade reading level, they literally drop off. So each day in the life of a child is a very long time, and that’s why we’ve got to collectively do everything in our power to reopen our schools as quickly as possible and as safely as possible.”

‘Kids Are Resilient And Kids Will Recover’: Nat’l Teachers’ Union President Dismisses Effects Of School Lockdowns’

https://www.dailywire.com/news/national-teachers-union-president-dismisses-effects-of-school-lockdowns

Who was it that predicted last fall that schools would reopen just in time for summer vacation? Think it was Buck Sexton or Matt Walsh. After summer break for the teachers, we will see if they reopen for the fall.

PS: In this case, resilient is the wrong word to use. Does not quite cut the mustard. The proper word the Teachers Union Head should have used is ‘adaptable’. Children are adaptable. They adapt to all sorts of things, from witnessing domestic violence or criminality down the street, to being homeless, watching Dad lose a job, wars, to Dr. Rebane being strafed as a child.
Children adapt to bad situations like not being in school, seeing their friends, running around the playground kicking a ball and burning off energy, and yes, playing sports and going out for pizza with the family on Friday nights.

While some school aged kids have kept up with the academics, their social and developmental needs have not. They adapt. They have found 70% of kids in some areas (districts) that did not bother to log on to their Zoom lessons even once. Hard to bounce back to something one never had. Adapt, not resilient.

‘Oh The Places The Woke Will Go: Dr. Seuss Canceled For ‘Racial Undertones’

“Learning for Justice claims that anyone who defends Dr. Seuss’s problematic work is a racial “apologist” and is making excuses for why “bigotry doesn’t matter.”

The education group also tells teachers to directly discuss Dr. Seuss’s “racist” past with older students, though “older students” remains an undefined category. Teachers were asked to explain to students how racism shows up in places and people they may least expect.”

Dont bother with the facts -

Police use deadly force under 1,000 times out of 30 million violent felony criminal contacts per year. That’s a 0.0004 percent chance of being shot by the police. In America, “you are more likely to be struck by lightning than to be shot by police.”
The NYPD in 2019, with 35,000 officers only fired their weapons in the line of duty 34 times. The Chicago Police Department, with 13,000 officers, only fired their weapons in the line of duty 34 times, and the Baltimore Police Department only fired their weapons in the line of duty four times.
O’Donnell accused politicians of playing a “shell game” by distracting the voters’ attention to false policing narratives while failing voters in “education, infrastructure, and transportation.”

O’Donnell noted that by defunding the police, “politicians will not decrease your taxes” but relocate the money to different areas. And when crime goes up, the municipality will “raise your taxes to lower the crime.”

“That’s all this is; they are just using this money and this opportunity because ‘never let an opportunity go to waste,’ that’s a democratic motto – to fund all these projects they’ve always wanted to fund all along.”

Even though the probability is very low of your being murdered by a rogue cop, your probability of being murdered by a CCW permit holder is six time less, or 1/6 the probability of being shot by a rogue cop. In America, CCW holders are the safest armed people of all - the least likely to perpetrate any kind of 'gun violence'.

The WEF, which the primary body pushing Klaus Schwab’s idea of a so-called ‘Great Reset’ of the global economic order, was widely ridiculed for the post, including by former Brexit Party MEP turned political commentator Martin Daubney, who was among the first to flag the video before it was taken down. Daubney later reposted the video, further exposing the WEF to criticism.

Speaking to Breitbart London, Mr Daubney said: “I’m glad they tweeted this — because it has exposed them for the out of touch crackpots that they are. The WEF sees humanity as a blight, something to be controlled and imprisoned, in order to meet arbitrary climate change targets.

“There’s just one problem, the public won’t play along with their Great Reset nonsense. All of the things the WEF want to stop: work, travel, capitalism, are the things the vast majority of humanity lives for. The WEF have exposed themselves as ridiculously out of touch with the everyday man and woman. Sheltered in their ivory towers, they treat the rest of us with absolute seething contempt.”

THIS is why Chancellor Biden doesn't do public appearances.
https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/02/27/joe-biden-speaks-in-houston-what-follows-should-make-you-question-everything-n334243
"After waiting nearly two weeks to respond, he finally left the bunker and headed down to Texas to do a photo-op in the wake of a massive winter storm. A normal president would have been there meeting with FEMA officials and surveying damage a week prior, but we obviously don’t have a normal president.

Therefore, instead of getting a public address when it mattered, we get this far too late performance that should leave you questioning everything.


If you watch the clip, he flubs Shelia Jackson Lee’s name, calling her “Shirley” after stumbling around. He then starts tripping all over himself to list the rest of the names his handlers have given him. Eventually, he devolves into asking “what am I doing here” because this is all totally normal or something.

To be clear, what is in that clip is not a stutter. A stutter does not make you say the wrong word nor does it cause you to be unable to read a list a names. It doesn’t even stop you from speaking in a manner that is otherwise understandable. What a stutter does is exactly what the word purports. It causes a stopping on and repetition of certain sounds. You never hear that effect from Biden because his issue is not a stutter, no matter how much the media try to gaslight the public into believing it is. This is a man whose mental capacity appears to be rapidly declining before our eyes. You can watch videos of Biden from just five years ago and he’s a totally different person."

"Golden Trump statue at CPAC was made in Mexico -- and is for sale. From Politico :

"Tommy Zegan spent over six months crafting the 200-pound fiberglass statue with the help of three men in Rosarito. He transported it to Tampa, Fla., where it was painted in chrome, then hauled it from there to CPAC in a U-Haul, where he managed to cart it through the conference in just a black-and-white Hawaiian shirt and no CPAC credential, Zegan crafted an even higher-end, stainless steel version that cost his 'life savings,' or $50,000. He said he's aiming to sell that one for over $1 million. But if not, he hopes to see it in a future Trump Presidential Library."

SPEAKING OF HATE SPEECH
“As in a Stalinist purge, Amazon has silently “disappeared” Ryan Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally. Amazon tacitly alleges that it acted under revised guidelines prohibiting the sale of “content that we determine is hate speech … or other material we deem inappropriate or offensive,” including content that “promotes the abuse or sexual exploitation of children, contains pornography, glorifies rape or pedophilia, [or] advocates terrorism.” Beyond citing the policy, Amazon has declined to justify its treatment of Anderson’s book.

The suppression of Anderson’s book cannot reasonably be justified under Amazon’s policy. Not even close. What we have here is the enforcement of a party line — forgive me for repeating myself — as in a Stalinist purge.

As I noted here yesterday, Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf remains for sale by Amazon. Likewise Quotations From Chairman Mao (a/k/a “the Little Red Book”). And you may want to walk around Amazon’s Che Guevara Store as well.

Now the Free Beacon’s Andrew Stiles identifies a few other items that have escaped the net of Amazon’s revised policy. The list he has compiled reflects a spirit of mockery. Teddy Kennedy’s True Compass is an example.

Stiles’s mockery is one approach to keeping the Amazon story alive. We need it and more.

A few of the items Stiles identifies fall into the category of “get ’em while you can” — the Bible, the Constitution, and Huckleberry Finn, for example. Examples could be multiplied endlessly. Think, for example, of Aristotle’s Ethics, with its analysis of slavery. It’s enough to make you think that perhaps this whole “hate speech” thing could get out of hand, or that this is precisely the point.”

Well, if Reagan with dementia can deliver a powerful stirring speech at the end of his Presidency, why can’t Joey Fingers of the Biden Crime Syndicate (who his supporters claim he does not have dementia) give a real speech early on in his presidency? Sloe Joe went back home to Delaware for the weekend. Hopes he gets some much needed nice peaceful naps. Do not disturb.

Bill Tozer

Today’s theme is shaping up to be called ‘meaningless”. Or emptiness. “Vanity, vanity, all things are vanity”, which correctly translated means “Emptiness, emptiness, all things are emptiness.” Same ancient word for ‘void’. Politics has intruded greatly into spheres in which it does not belong; at home, at work, at play, in sports, and in entertainment, in the sewing circle. Even shopping at the market. Leaves one empty.

Interesting perspective. Haven’t read Frankl’s ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ since ‘72 or ‘73, but it always struck with me.

‘My Generation Isn’t Suffering Enough’

“But, I suspect the problem is more nuanced than this. I don’t doubt that Gen Z is under a lot of strain, but I also think our plight is unique. For the first time in history, much of our misery stems not from too much suffering, but from not suffering enough. Gen Z does face real problems. I have certainly felt beleaguered by the pressures of social media, an oversaturated job market and the impact of coronavirus restrictions on my education. On top of that, there’s the difficulty of simply trying to exist as a fallible human in a political climate which demands infallibility, where nothing feels light-hearted anymore, and everything we say or do in our youth is stained onto the Internet for all time.

So, pressure is no doubt part of it. But previous generations faced egregiously difficult times: world wars, pandemics, economic crises, political rebellions, totalitarian regimes, and conditions of extreme poverty. Not only that, but today there are a wider range of mental health services available than ever before, and Gen Z are more likely than any other generation to seek treatment. So, for our rates of mental illness and suicide to be so high in a time of relative peace, there must exist a more convincing explanation than simply the asperities of life.

What lurks over my generation is not just a sense of misery, but meaninglessness. We exist in a state of lethargy and unfulfillment, tormented not by the tragedy of it all, but the futility. This is a point most articles and public figures today are less willing to discuss. But, to examine this possibility isn’t to say that Gen Z never struggle—but to suggest that at least some of us are caught in a rut of boredom, not burnout.“

Counter argument to above: Blame the Boomers, I do. Well, blame the Utopia Marxist peddlers. At least the writer’s opinion has merit.

‘How Baby Boomers Ushered In Our Narcissistic Age’
Helen Andrews' book, 'Boomers: The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster,' offers a penetrating and damning look at a generation that put America on a path to ruin

“Just short of the season of Festivus, he conflated the memes with hate speech: “Boomer’ is the n-word of ageism. Being hip and flip does not make bigotry ok, nor is a derisive epithet acceptable because it is new.” Lonsberry was done listening to the internet-fueled ageism on steroids. After years of cultivating “snowflake” and “Peter Pan” as practical analogs of the word “millennial,” the baby boomers were not about to lay down and take it in return.

Then again, anyone who has survived the COVID-19 apocalypse thus far should only be surprised at the vainglory. Only a generation who has been dictating the past 50 years of cultural trends could happily raise children and grandchildren who demanded worldwide lockdowns and wave it off as the price of living in society. The Baby Boomers ushered in this narcissistic age, and the millennials will have to wrest it from their cold, dead hands.“

Young authors may be self-censoring because they worry they will be "trolled" or "cancelled", according to celebrated writer Sir Kazuo Ishiguro.

Sir Kazuo, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2017, warned that a "climate of fear" was preventing some people from writing what they want.

He said they may be concerned that an "anonymous lynch mob will turn up online and make their lives a misery".

He told the BBC: "I very much fear for the younger generation of writers."

The 66-year-old said he was worried that less established authors were self-censoring by avoiding writing from certain viewpoints or including characters outside their immediate experiences.

"I think that is a dangerous state of affairs,"

He said he was particularly troubled about young writers "who rightly perhaps feel that their careers are more fragile, their reputations are more fragile and they don't want to take risks".

His comments come after a number of freedom of speech disputes, with writers being "cancelled" or facing threats to boycott their work. High-profile targets have included JK Rowling, Julie Burchill and Jeanine Cummins.
