Lead-in: When Gregory upset a commentator on the Union pages concerning an ERA editorial by saying men like to work with things (builders to engineers) while women prefer to work with people (public k-12 education, health care), I agreed with Gregory’s assessment. Women, despite all the changes in our society, are still the primary caregivers in the family unit and at large. As I have often stated, “Women like to nest.”

However, there is another aspect that I did not consider when bitchin’ about K-8 schools not reopening: risk aversion.

‘Why Are Teachers So Averse to Returning to the Classroom?’
The answer turns on the occupation’s culture — and its low tolerance of risk.

Ain't socialism great? And look who's implementing it.
https://dailycaller.com/2021/04/16/canada-police-state-ontario-premier-doug-ford-restriction-sylvia-jones/
"Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced in a Friday press conference that Ontario’s four-week stay-at-home order will extend another two weeks and also include harsher punishments for failing to abide by the rules."


“We have implemented the strictest measures in all of North America, and the difficult truth is, every public health measure we have left comes with a massive cost to people in their lives,” Ford said. “But, we have never shied away from doing what is necessary.”

As of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, police officers will be able to interrogate citizens for their address and the purpose for not being at home. Not complying is considered breaking the law, which will empower police officers to issue tickets.
"“We have made the deliberate decision to temporarily enhance police officers’ authority for the duration of the stay-at-home order,” Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said at the conference. “Moving forward, police will have the authority to require any individual who is not in a place of residence to first provide their purpose for not being at home, and provide their home address. Police will also have the authority to stop a vehicle to inquire about an individual’s reason for leaving their residence.”"

The woken are getting push back -

"Every class this year has had an obsessive focus on race and identity, ‘racist cop’ reenactments in science, ‘de-centering whiteness’ in art class, learning about white supremacy and sexuality in health class," the missive stated. "Wildly inappropriate, many of these classes feel more akin to a Zoom corporate sensitivity-training than to Dalton’s intellectually engaging curriculum."

The school’s former head of diversity, Domonic Rollins, left in February in the wake of that firestorm.

Now what if some Repub went and said this?
"CNN’s Chris Cuomo Friday during "Cuomo Primetime" said that police and gun reform won’t happen until "White people’s kids start getting killed."

"Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they’ll change," said the anchor. "[When] your kids start getting killed. White people’s kids start getting killed.""

A “VERY BEAUTIFUL” ATTACK

--------
According to Pew Research, 49% think Biden is doing a good job, 4o% think Biden is doing a poor job, and much more folks STRONGLY feel Biden is a poor job that folks who strongly feel Biden is doing a good job...thus, the Punchy Meter ratings have Joey Fingers at a minus ten (-10) score.

Why do you think that is?

Bill Tozer

Typo @ 6:21 PM.

49% feel Biden is doing a good job, 49% think Biden is doing a poor job, and much more...

Well according to Trump you can put Bidens Afgan pullout in the category of one of the good things Biden has done.

"In a release Sunday, Trump announced that he firmly supports Biden's withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, a policy that Trump attempted to implement but wasn't able to do before leaving office.

Calling it "a wonderful and positive thing to do," Trump's only complaint was the timeline. Trump said the U.S. "should get out earlier."
Tired of ads? Want to support our progressive journalism? Click to learn more.

It flies in the face of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Trump pal, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), both of whom attacked Biden for saying he'd withdraw troops. Graham even called it a "disaster in the making."

Whatever ol geezer...
Last time you yapped about it, you had you hemp undies in a knot because Trump was pulling out the troops.
There is no negotiating with those terrorists. Yet Biden thinks he can? LOL!!! They are already working on a nuke they can use.

When Trump was around,, they played nice, knowing Trump would bomb the shit out of them if they started any crap.

Lol.

Indeed, Trump wanted to get us out of Afghanistan. But then, a very funny thing happened. Right after President Trump announced, suddenly this unverified anonymous “Intel Source” told the NYT that Putin had put a bounty on US soldiers in....drumroll please....in Afghanistan. The Wa Compost picked up on it and the block Afghanistan withdrawal was in high gear. How can we withdrawal with Putin putting a bounty on US scalps? Trump does nothing about his buddy Putin doling out cash kill out men and women in uniform!!

Oh boy. I believe it was unhinged Crosstops that came over here all incredulous and appalled that Trump has done nothing about Putin! Bobbie spewed his moral outrage and could not hold back his utter disgust. If it wasn’t Roberta Flask, then I apologize and it was some other Lefty with a severe case of TDS.

Story about the Putin bounty turned out to be planted propaganda. More fakenews bold face falsehoods from the NYT, Wa Compost, CNN, and Maddcow as we found out last week. Intel’s assessment was low probability.....as released by the Pentegon.

BTY, Lindsey Graham is a hawk to the max along with the departed John McCain and a few others from both sides of the aisle. Like the Neo-cons they are. No biggie. Graham was opposed to Trump’s pullout as well. Think General Mathis, the Warrior Monk, quit over pulling out.

Joe finger in the pie Biden will find out soon enough about the dark state that runs the show. They have seven ways to Sunday to get back at you.
If we do pullout (whether you are pro or con on the idea), the Taibannies will drive out the Afghan government and the fall of Afghanistan, aka, America’s Longest War, will be placed squarely at Biden’s feet. It happened on Joey Finger’s watch. Disaster!

Which reminds me. Where is Fakenews Bobbie. He will be pissed if the 4th of July isn’t cancelled this year.

Bill Tozer

Wasn’t the FND (former news director) once for the Afghan war? The ‘good war’ as it was know at the time as opposed to Iraq, the bad war over oil.

Perhaps a better question is does the FND disagree with Trump getting us out of Afghanistan? It would be like interviewing oneself when the target of the mic in your face did not show up.

After the money the FND donated to help those beautiful Kurdish fighters (of the female gender), he was opposed to backing out of Syria. The good news is that the FND finally found a Cheney he does not hate. Her name is Liz. Bush did it too!

Biden Bids Farewell to a 'Forever War'

https://www.intellectualtakeout.org/biden-bids-farewell-to-a--forever-war-/

Last paragraphs:

“But if we failed in Afghanistan, why did we fail? Our enemies, the Taliban, motivated by a religious faith many would call fanaticism, were more willing to sacrifice, suffer, fight, bleed, and die for longer than we or our Afghan allies.

The Taliban are Eric Hoffer's "True Believers." Also, it is their country, after all, not ours. It is everything to them, not so much to us. They are steeped in the traditional Afghan hostility to foreigners and hatred of those who come to their land to tell them how they should live and rule themselves. The Taliban captured the flags of anti-colonialism, nationalism, and Islamic fundamentalism.

There is talk that, should the Taliban topple the government, bring down the regime and engage in reprisals and atrocities, American troops might surge back in. My sense is no. When we go this time, we're gone for good. Like the Brits in the 19th century and Russians in the 20th, when we go, we will not return.

Yet, Afghanistan is only one of the "forever wars" into which our interventionists plunged us that have proven so ruinous to the republic. The greatest blunder came in 2003, when George W. Bush was persuaded by the neoconservatives to invade Iraq and covert that country into America's model democracy for the Middle East. Our 18-year struggle in Iraq following the invasion of 2003 has proven even most costly in lives and treasure than the war in Afghanistan.

After Iraq came the intervention in Syria's civil war to back rebels seeking to oust President Bashar Assad. After that came the U.S.-NATO intervention in the Libyan civil war and America's intervention on the side of Saudi Arabia in Yemen's civil war.

For a generation now, we have been stomping barefoot on anthills and throwing rocks into bees' nests across the Middle and Near East. And to what avail? The nation-builders, the democratists, the liberal interventionists, the New World Order crowd are, today, being repudiated by Biden's decision to write off their 20-year project in the Hindu Kush.

One wonders: Will they soon start calling Biden an isolationist?”

Is that bernards brother @ 342. Mad max may have given him a get of jail card -

Renowned defense attorney and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday that the conviction of former Minneapolis, Minnesota, police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd should be overturned on appeal because of the public intimidation of the jury and the judge’s refusal to sequester the jury.

Dershowitz noted the “outside influence” of people like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who encouraged unrest at a protest on Saturday night in nearby Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, if there was no murder conviction in the case.

“Hoooo Weeee!
Conviction of a white cop for murdering a black man must be a major doggy downer for this crowd.”—-Jacob’s Goats

Well, that is quite an assumption from Mr Goats. Full of ignorance, all ignorance. To be kind, I will put it down as another assumption in life. Never assume is a absolute statement for those who believe there are no absolutes.
—————————-
Quotes:
Upright I: “What I find extremely offensive is the narrative from the left that black people are not smart enough, not educated enough … to do what every other culture and race does in this country: get an ID.” —Congressman Burgess Owens

Upright II: “Reparations are both condescending and counterproductive, and to go down that path perpetuates a harmful racial stereotype and further divides our nation. … First, it is impractical and logistically impossible. It is also unfair and heartless to give Black Americans hope that reparations are a reality. Second, debates on reparations do not represent the rich history of a proud and tenacious community, who, like those of my lineage, worked, studied and overcame to live the American Dream. Third, reparations teach separation and convey a narrative that Black Americans are a hopeless, hapless and oppressed race entitled to handouts. The core of the debate certainly does not represent Black America’s potential, nor the 150 years of legal, social and economic progress achieved by millions of American minorities.” —Burgess Owens

Non compos mentis: “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Race bait I: “So no. This verdict is not justice. … I also don’t want this moment to be framed as this system working.” —AOC

Race bait II: “A measure of justice isn’t the same as equal justice. This verdict brings us a step closer, and the fact is we still have work to do. We still must reform the system. … America has a long history of systemic racism.” —Kamala Harris

Race bait III: “The systemic racism is a stain on our nation’s soul. … Such a verdict is also much too rare. For so many people it seems like it took a unique and extraordinary convergence of factors. … In order to deliver real change and reform, we can and we must do more to reduce the likelihood that a tragedy like this will ever happen to occur again. … And this takes acknowledging and confronting head on systemic racism and the racial disparities that exist in policing and in our criminal justice system more broadly.” —Joe Biden

Halls of injustice I: “I’m praying the [Derek Chauvin] verdict is the right verdict, which is — it’s overwhelming, in my view.” —Joe Biden before the verdict

Halls of injustice II: “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.” —Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey before the verdict

Halls of injustice III: “The case, to me, feels like a closed case.” —Congresswoman Ilhan Omar before the verdict

And last… “The judge asked elected officials not to get involved and influence the jury. In response, the mayor of Minneapolis and the President of the United States both publicly called for guilty verdicts. These crooks have no respect for the rule of law at all. It’s a joke to them.” —Matt Walsh

The Great Divide: A lot of people would rather receive a government check than a paycheck.

George Rebane

BillT 833am - Perhaps a more accurate expression of this Great Divide is that a lot Americans would rather have their neighbors pay their way than pay their own way. And that is why they oppose the Great Divide.

Bill Tozer

Dr. Rebane @ 8:58 am.

Well, sitting around the barn eating all the hay can be quite appealing to a large sum of our fellow travelers. Others, however, saw the impracticality of the idea that looked so good on the blackboard and discussed into the night in the dorms.
The Pilgrims are the classic example of what a disaster that thinking led to, but they quickly changed course. Reading a diary of how it was, some of the Pilgrim women folk got quite resentful that they had to wash some other women’s slacker husband’s clothes. “I am not washing some lazy bum’s clothes! He’s a sluggard! My husband works from dawn to dusk. While that man sleeps half the day” That great experiment of socialism in the New World, as Providence would have it, only lasted but a winter of discontent. Today they would be severely criticized for putting money and things ahead of people. Things, I say, things ahead of people. Selfishness!

Why buy the cow when the milk is free?

George Rebane

BillT 945am - Quite right Mr Tozer, but our left-leaning neighbors can only learn from such revealing historical episodes if in their schooling they were also exposed to them. But alas, nothing in 'their history' teaches the contradictions and catastrophes of collectivism. That is one plausible explanation as to why they continue to come up with their hare-brained social policies, thinking that such have a chance of working, because in their carefully constructed worldview these have never been shown to fail. And all those deficits arise from their total ignorance of elementary human nature - e.g. altruism über alles.

Bill Tozer

A CLASSICS DILEMMA
“Lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth yesterday at the announcement that Howard University (Vice President Harris’s alma mater) is closing up it Classics department. Cornel West and Jeremy Tate took to the op-ed page of the Washington Post to call the decision “a spiritual catastrophe.” West and Tate remind us:“.....


“Aside from whatever contemporary ideological currents may be at the center of these and similar articles, one wonders how many students will simply die of boredom? These might be suitable micro-examinations for a large research university, but it is this kind of desire to be “relevant” to modern times, or in harmony with current ideological trends, that is killing liberal arts programs at non-research colleges in field after field. (This is a little understood problem.) The irony is that if Du Bois wanted to find “the dull red hideousness” of our world today, he’d find it most often in a humanities department at a university.”

IF the peoples republics wont deal with the rioter then DHS can protect federal property so screw you socialist dem mayors in the peoples republics who have failed -

"Violent opportunists repeatedly targeted and attempt[ed] to burn down a federal courthouse, the seat of justice in downtown Portland," he said in September.

But opponents of the move claimed the DHS had no authority to intervene, and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had previously refused to ask for federal assistance and then asked Wolf to pack his officers up and get out of town.

But the inspector general report found that DHS indeed "had the legal authority to designate and deploy DHS law enforcement officers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and United States Secret Service to help FPS (Federal Protective Service) protect federal facilities in Portland."

No worries. Per usual, I need to clarify the sluggard on the dole. If a man will not work, he shall not eat. A rule of the Mayflower. Hunger drives the laborer on like no other method and breaks destructive bad habits. Like being sick and tired of being sick and tired.

The operative words are ‘will not work’ as opposed to ‘cannot work.’ Able bodied people of working age with two brain cells left to rub together who will not work is one thing, being busted up or recovering from the doc’’s knife is quite another. Doc sez stay home and rest up for a few weeks or months is most certainly ‘cannot not work’. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. :).
People who take time off to care for an elderly parent or stay home to raise the kids are also exempted. Those are sacrifices and reasons, not excuses.
Glad (very glad) to see you are getting strong enough to get back in the saddle, hold the reins and say ‘giddy up.’ Don’t overdo it. Easy does it. Otherwise you will be on the floor crying out, “Help! I have fallen and can’t giddy up.” Ok, that was lame and overused. None of us are Supermen, but folks like you are super men.
I’m retired and I really don’t want to put in one more day of work again....no way Jose...unless I need to. I would rather grow flowers. My favorite children’s book as a kid was Ferdinand the Bull. Ferdinand would rather smell the flowers than do his job. Both of us are in touch with our feminine side. :). Anyway.....

Byron York's Daily Memo: The White House 'crisis' crisis

“The bottom line, the thing to remember, is that Team Biden is happy to talk about crises -- as long as they haven't been created by Team Biden itself.”

Translation creepy grampa joe is getting ready to be bitched again, first those mutha mullahs and now letting ukraine go. We did sign a treaty that guaranteed security if they gave up their nukes. Boy have the socialist dems screwed them but good.
