In the interest of a proper start for Festivus Celebrations nationwide, I'll go with a quote from a story one Mr. Tozer brought in.

"A group of 15-to-20-year-old suspects targeted a Home Depot store in Lakewood around 8:30 p.m., making off with crowbars, mallets and sledgehammers, according to Fox 11 Los Angeles. The group, which arrived in as many as ten vehicles and ran into the store wearing ski masks, reportedly emptied out an entire section of hammers before taking off, KCBS-TV reported."

The sheer genius of the thing made me laugh. Everyone gets to help eat the bread in Little Red Hen society and a hammer (but no sickle) makes a great deal of sense as a Blue Mob symbol. It used to represent the working class, but now it simply represents brute application of force. Think of the hammer as an upraised fist with mechanical advantage.

Back to begging OPEC for more output?

https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2021/11/27/biden-increase-u-s-oil-lease-fees-50-accusing-big-oil-anticompetitive-activities/

"The Biden-Harris administration issued a report Friday to increase the price of oil leasing fees on federal lands in the United States by 50 percent—even while accusing oil companies of artificially increasing prices through illegal and anticompetitive actions.

Despite record-high gasoline prices impacting American families across the country with winter around the corner, the Biden-Harris administration is recommending Congress hike the cost of oil leases on government lands from 12.50 percent to 18.75 percent."

A reason for the ponytail of ignorance's disappearance? -

Every single poll listed showed Biden’s approval underwater, several by double digits. The USA Today/Suffolk survey, for instance, has Biden underwater by 21 percent, garnering an abysmal 38 percent approval rating.

The momentum is looooookinnnng gooooood -

Already, Mr. Biden’s approval ratings have taken a sharp fall among some of his core constituencies, showing double-digit declines among Black, Latino, female and young voters. Those drops have led to increased tension between the White House and progressives at a time of heightened political anxiety, after Democrats were caught off-guard by the intensity of the backlash against them in elections earlier this month. Mr. Biden’s plummeting national approval ratings have also raised concerns about whether he would — or should — run for re-election in 2024.

I can't blame her for trying. Good for her if it was just a bit of grifting, bad for her if it was variant of the modern mental illness that tells men they can wear a dress and be a bitchin' babe.

Being a Native American is an odd thing, there appears to be several varieties.
. Utterly fake, whether it's Canadian Health Ministers or TV anti-pollution actors (Espera DiCorti)
. Utterly real, like a Navajo family on the rez wondering why those white people are such a pain
. The folks with a grandparent who might have been (or was) a tribe member, never lived in that culture, have a few family stories. Kind of like some guy in a kilt at the Scottish Games whose great-grandfather left the old country one step ahead of the law.

Honestly, I'm not sure what 'racist' means anymore. It's mostly the word you hear shouted before your head gets stove in by a skateboard I guess.

However, neither woman got a majority of support from respondents, with 36 percent saying they were “unsure” who they would support, and 13 percent said they would choose someone who was not on the list."

re: BT@10:12PM/10:32PM

In both cases, I think there are hidden benefits here. Team Red spent too many years thinking that the national secret police were their friends and that public schools were a good thing. It's good to see both myths exploded.

The problem/opportunity is that sane people need to step up to the plate. I can't see the point at yelling at the school board, it's like telling the local комиссáр to put down his political Powerpoint slides and take up a useful trade. In the 19th C., people with a bit of dosh in the bank thought nothing of building schools, Masonic lodges, local parks as a community service. If you don't want your kids or grandkids to get reading assignments from 'Mommy Has A Penis' and other learned tomes, you need your own school as the other kind is a lost cause.

At a more advanced level, (I think) a lot could be accomplished by moving professional gatekeepers from universities to certificates ala bar exams (although I fully expect bar exams to get a DEI essay section at some point). It would work for many (not all) forms of study. The funny thing is that a tutor would be cheaper than Ivy League classes per hour.

Same goes for news/entertainment.

Where the rubber hits the road is the likely government response. Official censorship, official classwork, official news. Once that happens, either it's game over for freedom or things get more kinetic.

Ms. Andersson, 54, was first chosen last Wednesday, but resigned after her budget was rejected by Parliament and her coalition collapsed. After days of negotiations, she gathered enough support to return to the top job Monday, this time without the minority party that brought her down."

A drag from the top -

President Joe Biden saw his lowest job approval numbers. Biden’s job approval found a new low of 36.4 percent during the first nine months of his presidency, according to a Zogby poll. While the poll also found that 61.3 percent of the respondents gave Biden a negative rating, the president was underwater with all age categories, particularly the younger generation of voters between 18 and 29, which viewed him 63 percent negatively and only 34 percent positively.

Quotes....

Insight: “Virtue is harder to be got than a knowledge of the world; and, if lost in a young man, is seldom recovered.” —John Locke (1632-1704)

“There’s so many athletes, so many actors … so many singers and rappers out there. They’re scared. They’re scared to say a word because they care too much about their money. They care too much about their endorsement deals. They care too much about what the teams that they play for are going to say. But, you know, they should know one thing: It should be morals and principles over money. It shouldn’t be the opposite way. … [China is] a brutal dictatorship and they engage in censorship, they threaten the freedoms, and they don’t respect human rights, and they hide the truth.” —NBAer Enes Kanter

“For real, all lives matter, not just black children. We don’t want to see nobody go through this. … It’s all our problem. So hey, let’s keep fighting. Let’s keep doing it and making this place a better place for all human beings — all human beings. Everybody. Love everybody. All human beings need to be treated equally.” —Ahmaud Arbery’s father, Marcus

Friendly fire: “I continue to call on President Biden to responsibly increase energy production here at home and to reverse course to allow the Keystone XL pipeline to be built which would have provided our country with up to 900,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada, one of our closest allies. To be clear, this is about American energy independence and the fact that hard-working Americans should not depend on foreign actors, like OPEC+, for our energy security and instead focus on the real challenges facing our country’s future.” —Senator Joe Manchin

Swamp Doctor: “Anybody who spins lies, and threatens, and all that theater that goes on with some of their investigations and the congressional committees and the Rand Pauls and all that other nonsense, that’s noise. … They’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous.” —Anthony Fauci (“The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity.” —Senator Rand Paul | “Fauci is an unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans. He lives in a liberal world where his smug ‘I REPRESENT science’ attitude is praised.” —Senator Ted Cruz)

Grand delusions: “You can’t beat the fact that [Biden is] working for America. Just sayin’.” —"The View’s" Whoopi Goldberg

Dezinformatsiya I: “Here’s what we know so far on the sequence of events that led to the Waukesha tragedy caused by a SUV.” —The Washington Post

Dezinformatsiya II: “Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.” —CNN

Propaganda: “What is Thanksgiving to Indigenous people? ‘A day of mourning.’” —USA Today

Race bait I: “Instead of bringing stuffing and biscuits, those settlers brought genocide and violence. That genocide and violence is still on the menu.” —Native American author Gyasi Ross

Race bait II: “When the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower in 1620, they didn’t bring thanks. They didn’t even give thanks. Instead, they brought racist genocide and gave nothing.” —attorney and radio host Michael Coard

Race bait III: “By allowing him to go free and potentially commit other crimes, this jury sent the final and loudest warning to white America about the dangerous rise of white nationalist terror in this country, one I suspect will be ignored by most thought leaders, politicians, and the press. Kyle Rittenhouse was able to kill Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and face no consequences because those men were race traitors.” —MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” guest host Jason Johnson

Race bait IV: “The first thing that occurred to me after this ruling is, ‘Oh, well, OK, now it’s just open season.’ Like, if I’m walking around and I’m a white nationalist coward little kid with an AR-15, and I see someone drive by with a ‘Black Lives Matter’ bumper sticker and I feel threatened, I can open fire. If I go by a youth group standing outside a local Target and they’re chanting, ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and I feel threatened, I can open fire.” —Jason Johnson

Race bait V: “Rittenhouse will be the poster child for reactionary white men who want to take the law in their own hands, who want to bring assault weapons to Black Lives Matter protests, and who think that violence is a legitimate form of political discourse.” —MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler

Non compos mentis: “This strikes me as an odd situation for self-defense. It’s something akin to saying that if you go in a bank and rob it, and people are trying to apprehend you, you can shoot your way out and claim self-defense. That’s a little bit what Kyle Rittenhouse did. He created this problem, and then proceeded to threaten people to get out.” —MSNBC legal analyst Joyce Vance

And last… “Remember last year when Republicans wanted to buy 77M barrels into the strategic reserve at dirt cheap prices? Remember when the Democrat Congress refused? Taxpayer profit from selling this oil today would be ~$3B. Because of Democrats, we don’t get that profit. And guess what, prices won’t be affected either. This is what happens when pragmatism is swept aside and emotional outbursts become your governing philosophy.” —Congressman Dan Crenshaw

LATEST ACADEMIC HOAX IS A DOOZY
“Ever since Alan Sokal hoaxed Social Text more than 20 years ago, and Peter Boghossian and his two compatriots punked several postmodern journals with total gibberish just a couple years back, you’d think academic journal editors and reviewers would be on guard against similar hoaxes. But apparently not Higher Education Quarterly (a Wiley publication) which is just out with a howler entitled “Donor money and the academy: Perceptions of undue donor pressure in political science, economics, and philosophy.”

China’s Global Times, a state-controlled publication, asserted this week that Hollywood will destroy itself as it continues to embrace “political correctness” with an increasingly lunatic fervor.

The state-run media outlet cited the recent decision to exclude author J.K.

“If Hollywood continues down this road, it will dig its own grave and destroy its reputation one day,” the Global Times predicted.

So Yellen says she's really, really upset about IRS files being stolen and then she says this:
“Just to be clear: we do not know the ProPublica information came from the IRS. That hasn’t been established.”

Could some one please ask her where else IRS files would come from?
Oh yeah - Project Veritas wants to know when was the FBI raid on the folks running ProPublica?

Of course in the salons of the rich socialists and the coastal lamestream lapdogs its the little red books truth -

Democrat policies are meant to make things more difficult for the average American: Skyrocketing energy prices are a feature, not a bug, in Biden world. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg himself said that high gas prices will make more Americans buy more electric vehicles. Jen Psaki hinted that higher prices on all products will make American consumers consume less. Biden's chief of staff retweeted affirmatively an assertion that inflation was a high-class problem. Democrats used to look out for working-class voters. Now, they despise them. That contempt has not gone unnoticed.

Democrats don't care about fighting crime: Murders are up in almost every major city. Looting is common-place in both high-end boutiques and low-brow Home Depots. Shoplifting is no longer a criminal offense in many big cities. The Democrats, stuck between the defund-the-police crowd and the American people, have largely ignored the issue. When they talk about it at all, most on the left blame the 2nd Amendment for the uptick in homicides and talk about white privilege as the underlying cause of the uptick in petty crime. Some leading lights of the left even cheer on crime as striking a blow against the white patriarchy.

"Democrats used to look out for working-class voters. Now, they despise them. "

I'll put forth an alternative theory.

'Democrats', by that I mean Blue Mob activists, dream of everyone living in solar-powered cities filled with bike paths, cradle-to-grave housing,food,medical regardless of lifestyle choices by everyone. The rest of the world is a beautiful wildlife park with no untoward changes in weather. Top o' the heap Democrats want safe beachfront mansions (who doesn't, really?).

So how do you achieve the dream? Even if you remove policy choices from the hoi polloi's wishes by more centralizing there doesn't appear to be much motion in the desired direction.

Answer? Destroy existing systems and use the chaos and degradation as a tool to rebuild in a desired direction. If you remove nuclear, natgas, coal, oil from energy production, hopefully you arrive at the 'right' answer. Beautiful government-sponsored housing not available for everyone? Put so many homeless people on the street that we are forced to build the 'right' answer. Don't favor all of the special ethnic groups? Decriminalize crime until you cede the public sphere and commerce to them.

There's probably a word for it in Russian, from the Revolution, for the idea. Destruction is a helluva lot easier than building, and once you are upset or destitute enough, you can be guided to a naturally occurring 'correct' answer.

The working class isn't despised, it just needs to get it's mind right.

‘How The FBI Raid On Project Veritas Helped Protect The New York Times’

France on the Verge of Civil War
The rise of Éric Zemmour.

——————
Dovetail:

“Today Zemmour released a video declaring his candidacy for president, and I’ve heard comparisons (including from a French student in my political science class this semester) comparing it to Charles de Gaulle’s famous July 18, 1940 radio broadcast pronouncing the cause of Free France amidst the nation’s collapse before the German army. For our readers who understand French, the video is at the bottom—but even if you don’t speak French I recommend watching it for a few minutes to take in how powerful it is.

“Just to be clear: we do not know the ProPublica information came from the IRS. That hasn’t been established.”

So now you have two hyper-political groups with access to those records. The IRS and ProPublica.

Really, is that worse than just the IRS holding them? (assuming that the weren't purposefully given out in order to attack certain individuals).

In both cases, the organization is allowed to target particular people for punishment. It isn't like the leaked records were in turn made public (so far as I know), the guy who was known for that is named Assange and is carefully kept in the subdungeon of a secret policeman's lair. Information is power and ProPublica wants it as much as the IRS. The short term goal of taxing wealth in addition to income is besides the point.

Given the upcoming lack of privacy, and it isn't like it's listed in the Bill of Rights, you can imagine the machine put together at the IRS. The aim is to track *all* financial transactions, no matter how small, and that can be pasted together from private and public sources. For all I know they have a direct line to that Alexa device in your house and keep track of your physical location via modern wifi devices. There's likely no turning back on this one, especially given the newfound ability to parse the data.

So what do you do? Maybe one answer is some kind of radical transparency. The power doesn't come from the information so much as the control and centralization of it. Musk should simply post his tax returns every year and not care about blowback.

Either that or a cabin in the woods.

Mr. Михаил Горбачёв liked to use the term 'perestroika' (перестройка = restructuring). Sounds way more genteel than 'destroy'.

That policy has been tied, on and off, to the break-up of the Soviet Union. Maybe try a different term for use in the U.S.

How about "like duckpins"? I believe that was the term shouted by that evil red SUV that, on its own, plowed through those folks at the Christmas parade in Waukesha recently.

Notable quotables from Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz, Eric Swalwell, and more.

Insight: “I can scarcely contemplate a greater calamity that could befall this country, than be loaded with a debt exceeding their ability ever to discharge. If this be a just remark, it is unwise and improvident to vest in the general government a power to borrow at discretion, without any limitation or restriction.” —Robert Yates (1738-1801)

“Prosecutors knew that [Darrell Brooks] had a lifetime of violence and bail-jumping and disregarding the law, but Wisconsin prosecutors recommended a $1,000 bond. … And now, six body bags later, prosecutors finally concede that bond was too low. We already know that. $1,000 was too low when you set it. Now, after six people are dead, and dozens more injured, you set the bond at $5 million. So what’s different now? He was a career criminal before he killed six people at a Christmas parade. We don’t need prosecutors to react after there are six bodies laying on a parade route; we need prosecutors and politicians who prioritize public safety beforehand.” —Trey Gowdy

“[Darrell Brooks] should not have even been on the street. [He] had clear, anti-white animus. And this was an intentional act. And it seems like, you know, for corporate press, they’re more apt to characterize a parent who goes to a school board meeting to protest bad policies as a domestic terrorist than somebody who intentionally rams an SUV into a crowd of innocent people.” —Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

Friendly fire I: “Let me be clear, Oakland needs more police. We have been interrupted by staffing reductions, COVID interrupted our recruitment and training processes, and the defund rhetoric is challenging our ability to attract and retain recruits.” —Oakland, California, Democrat Mayor Libby Schaaf

Friendly fire II: “I don’t know that the travel ban makes sense. I don’t know that it’s that different because he’s banning people from African countries and we know that this variant is not only in South Africa, and South Africa has some of the world’s best scientists and epidemiologists and I think that’s why they found the variant there. This variant was found in Israel, it was found in Belgium, it was found in other European countries. Why aren’t there bans from those countries? Why just Africa? I think that has to be called out.” —"The View’s" Sunny Hostin

“Dr. Fauci, I think, is the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of the country. You know, he talks … about hurting science. I don’t think anyone has hurt science, has hurt the credibility of the CDC, has hurt the credibility of doctors more than Dr. Fauci because throughout this pandemic, he’s been dishonest. He’s been political. He’s been partisan. And and the American people know it.” —Senator Ted Cruz

Non compos mentis: “I’m losing my Covid patience. I’ve tried to reason with the unvaxxed. I’ve directed some to medical pros. I don’t judge but hear them out and steer them to facts. The unvaxxed love to say it’s about choice. But you know who doesn’t have a choice? My 3 kids under 5. … The looney carnival barkers at the school board meetings DO NOT reflect where most parents are. Your unvaxxed status is creating new variants. So get your damn shot. Or, stay inside your house. But don’t mess with my kids.” —Congressman Eric Swalwell

What could possibly go wrong? “It’s time to admit that we have to go to war against COVID. Require vaccination universally. Have the military run it. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, you better be ready to prove your conscientious objector status in court." —CNBC’s Jim Cramer

But hey, it could always be worse… "You can now see family and friends again in their homes, and use the bathroom, inside. Luxury.” —New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

Judicial intimidation: “I hope the Supreme Court is listening to the people of the United States because … I think if you want to see a revolution go ahead, outlaw Roe v. Wade and see what the response is of the public, particularly young people.” —Senator Jeanne Shaheen

Thanks, Captain Obvious: “We tend to use [the word transitory] to mean that it won’t leave a permanent mark in the form of higher inflation. I think it’s probably a good time to retire that word.” —Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell

The BIG Lie: “Right now, sending your kid to preschool in the United States costs around $8,600 per year. Under my Build Back Better Act it will cost $0.” —Joe Biden

Grand delusions: “Thanksgiving is about gratitude. In 2021 it’s Biden supporters and liberals who seem grateful for America, for American institutions and ideals, for the American way of life. It’s Trumpists and today’s conservative movement who seem to be bitterly lacking in gratitude to America.” —Bill Kristol

Hardly in better hands: “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation. The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” —new Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal last year

Belly laugh of the week: “It’s time to stop demonizing ‘invasive’ species: Climate change is forcing some animals to move. Don’t call them ‘invasives.’” —Vox’s Marina Bolotnikova

And last… “It’s not hard to imagine that the day will soon come when the radical left begins touting abortion as a tool for managing population growth as the Chinese Communist Party has done for decades.” —Mike Pence

Scott O

"But don’t mess with my kids.” —Congressman Eric Swalwell

If you were wondering why the name Omicron sounded familiar, perhaps it's because you've heardit before on the hit series 'Futurama' created by Matt Groening. That's right, the new COVID variant was named Omicron, which is the 14th letter in the Greek alphabet and initially didn't sound threatening at all. However, those who have seen Futurama are fully aware that the main antagonist comes from a planet named Omicron Persei 8. His name is Lrrr but it's really pronounced 'Lurrr'. Twitter users went crazy as soon as the World Health Organization made this name public. There are all type of reactions to this new name that all 'Futurama' fans find familiar.

Creepy grampa joe and the socialists have taken hispancics for granted to long and their policies have driven them to team R -

The now-former spokesman for District of Columbia Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser told Fox News on Wednesday that President Biden's tenure in office has led him to change party affiliation and also to vote for GOP businessman Glenn Youngkin in the off-year gubernatorial election in Virginia, where he resides.

Victor Jimenez told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that his political shift was not a small decision, adding that he was until recently the "lead public information officer at [Bowser's] office for community affairs" and previously in a similar role for Latino outreach.

Jimenez, who is an Afro-Dominican immigrant according to a tweet from the DC Office of Latino Affairs, previously told Spanish-language network Telemundo that "Biden turned me into a Republican" and that the president has "destroyed the economy."

The reason I switched parties is because of everything that’s going on in the country right now. We see immigration through the roof right now and that is affecting a lot of Hispanic families in my home state of Virginia," Jimenez said. "And those are people who are already struggling with making ends meet."

we also have bad people coming into the country with bad intentions. People with illegal guns and drugs and people who are running from their law enforcement in their own country."

Carlson replied that, in the Democratic Party's strict categorical hierarchy, the assumption would be that Jimenez would both continue to be a Democrat and additionally be supportive of illegal immigration.

"Being Hispanic and Black, I should be Democrat by default," Jimenez replied. "But I am going against their narrative and I feel like right now everything is crumbling for the Democrats."

He referenced Youngkin's defeat of former Gov. Terry McAuliffe as "the beginning of the end" for the party and a potential precursor to a GOP landslide in 2022.

“I went out to say hi to my protesters and give them a chance to answer my ‘what is a woman’ question. They declined, it seems,” Walsh posted on Twitter with video of the confrontation.

Topic, no links. The fertilizer shortage outside of the US. Fertilizer means food....and bio fuels.

China has stopped exporting its fertilizers (nitrogen, potash, phosphates) to take care of their domestic needs first. Same with the former USSR, aka, Russia. Europe needs fertilizers to go food. In the Western Developed countries of Europe, some countries rely on imported fertilizers to grow their food to feed the masses. “Three missed meals leads to Revolution.”—author unknown.

In the USA, a massive country, some of the fertilizer shortages are due to factories being shut down during the China Virus from Wuhan. Some face labor shortages. About 18% goes into the bio-gasoline mix grown in the farm belt, as required by law. All these food staples need fertilizers. Sure, one can skip the fertilizers for a year, maybe two, but the yields will be smaller and thus lead to more food shortages. But, the real story is happening in Europe, Eurasia, Vietnam, etc.

The Biden Administration got on its high horse and banned exports from Belarus, along with Canada and the UK. Belarus two main products that give it access to foreign currency is oil and potash. The UK for some reason exempted potash from the Belarus sanctions, lol. The UK has been importing potash from America since the early Colonial times; once the biggest export from from the New World to the Crown.

Not surprisingly, the EU has weakened its sanctions on Belarus to exclude potash and/or just knock down the percentages they receive (imports from Belarus) a
some. Belarus cut off Poland. Oh my. Each individual EU country must make sure they have enough fertilizer to take care of their own...first.

I wonder if Europe and other countries feel ‘food insecure’ yet?

The left and the Dems must be pretty pleased a white kid shot up a high school. No more need to explain an SUV carelessly harming some people out in the street.
The gun nuts (the folks that are insane and want to pass laws about guns) wasted no time in climbing on top of the bodies to appear to be of higher stature:
"He went on to call the footage “absolutely terrifying to watch”, adding, “All of those kids who fled that violence, all of those kids who now don’t think of school as a safe place, they are going through trauma and will go through trauma that will take a lifetime to address.”"
No, Virginia - he's not talking about Chicago or Philly or any other large metro run by Dems - shootings in those places are just part of life we need to get used to. We're talking here about white children in a mostly white suburban mid-western town.
But.
He has the answer - actually - no, he doesn't.
"Murphy acknowledged that the expansion of background checks would not have necessarily prevented the school shooting..."
Actually, it wouldn't have at all.
“I don’t claim that this proposal nor any other proposal to change the nation’s gun laws will have an effect on every single shooting” but argued that expanded background checks “saves lives, decreases gun violence, [and] decreases violent crime”.
So - it doesn't work on any actual circumstance they can name, but by god, by some pixie magic it will work! Quick question - what's the tally on school shootings where the various presidents had their kids attend? Oh, that's different. OK.

You really just have to laugh sometimes at how tribal humans are. In-group favoritism is a thing and physical differences (followed by things like culture and speech) make a lot of evolutionary sense. We are seeing the opposite of that right now in a few quarters, but it's a passing phase. There's some deep mental circuitry being tapped here.

I wish I had a long enough lifespan to see how the destruction of color-blindness as public policy plays out (it's racist after all). I can guess how the prison rec yard part forms up (ie. just regular people), but not sure how their lords and masters, the metastasized version of prison administration called government and business executives, will clique up.

Two central questions (to me).
. Does diversity always lead to competing teams? What is the social glue in states with diversity?
. Will the issue of the day move from blacks plus allies vs. everyone else to an all against all fight for status and resources?

I honestly enjoy this sort of thing as it shows the sheer craziness of the Blue Mob while avoiding arson by the Party of Mostly Peaceful. Transsexual sports seems like an underserved non-profit profit opportunity in Nevada County. I need to hie me up to Truckee to get some business advice for setting up a 501 to handle this matter.

Hold the phone. Brilliant idea time.

Someone needs to set up a US Women's National Soccer Team made up purely of men-in-dresses. World championship should be a shoo-in.

The movie rights should be worth a fortune.

Of course, given the money involved, golf and tennis are the low hanging fruit.

Didn't Monty Python do this in the 70's?

Once again the majority is commanded to submit to a minority and thus creating an elevated aristocratic class of the minority to lord over us. The real one half percenters. Ok, the 0.3 %ers
