The 'educated' liberal females are overflowing in the least competitive, most risk averse jobs...in k-12 'education', the key to entry being indoctrinated by the colleges of education that have been captured by neo-marxist dogma over the past 40+ years.

You can understand why the teachers unions have happily damaged the kids wielding their power to shut schools and groom the kids with all their power -

A teacher in El Paso, Texas, is on administrative leave and facing termination after she told students to call pedophiles "minor attracted persons" in an incident that was captured on video and shared on social media, according to the city's school district.

In an 18-second clip, the Franklin High School teacher can be heard telling students to "stop calling them that. You're not allowed to label people like that."

"We're not gonna call them that," the teacher is heard saying in the video. "We're gonna call them MAPs, minor attracted persons. So don't judge people just because they wanna have sex with a 5-year-old."

The Supreme Court now has 3 ELFs.

Ketanji Brown Jackson (black, with a white husband), Sonia Sotomayor (Hispanic) and Elena Kagan (white and Jewish).

Fortunately, they are counterbalanced by 6 conservatives. Usually 6 anyway; sometimes only 4, and you can't be sure of the other 2.

America Delira

We went mad because we easily could. And we could, not because we were poor and oppressed, but because we were rich and bored.

Might go here…

‘America’s elites are neither bright, competent, nor qualified’

“At the risk of sounding defeatist, I don’t know how to dislodge the present elites. It seems to me that their grip on power is so secure that ordinary political action—organizing, voting, governing—will not suffice, especially when half or more of the regime is beyond government control.

So instead I will make a suggestion to our rulers; it won’t be heeded, but I will make it anyway. Be better tyrants. (I should hear clarify that I use this word in its original meaning: usurper who rules without law. I do believe, as I have already said, that the present rulers usurped our constitutional order, and that they rule without law, or that they make outward shows of respect for the law only when it suits them. I am not equating them with Pol Pot.) Anyway, my advice to them is: treat the country as your estate. When it thrives, you thrive. When it prospers, you prosper. When it’s healthy, you’re healthy. Rule for the common good so that you may better advance your own good. You own the joint. Act like it. Stop looting and start building.

Secure the border and re-shore manufacturing for the good of your subjects. Restore the military’s competence and then use it sparingly. Promote rather than despoil the middle class. Adopt policies that reduce wealth and income inequality and promote home ownership. Get control of your universities. I’m not asking you make them conservative; that would be like bringing democracy to Russia. But at least make them sane. Fight crime. Enforce the law equally. Bring the national security state to heel. Stop calling half the country enemies of the state and cool it with the anti-white racism.”

The day after Joe Biden’s notorious Nuremberg speech, three armed FBI agents visited the home of a New Jersey woman named Lisa Gallagher. Why? The FBI had an anonymous tip that Gallagher had something to do with the January 6 demonstration. She also had a pro-Trump sign on her lawn:

A New Jersey woman who voiced her support for former President Trump on Facebook said Monday that three FBI agents showed up at her home last month claiming to have an anonymous tip connecting her to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, despite her having no involvement.
***
“I was terrified. I’ll be honest with you, when my daughter woke me up telling me there were three armed FBI officers at my door, I thought she was joking. I immediately tried to throw [on] clothes. I called my husband, I was crying, my knees were shaking. And even though I knew I had done nothing wrong, after seeing Joe Biden’s speech the night before, I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is political.’”

She was right, of course.

“I have subsequently called the FBI office in Newark to document or know for sure that it really was FBI agents at my home. It was. They said it was an anonymous tip, but they won’t tell me anything else.”

We should be grateful for Trump. He laid bare the ineptitude, corruption, propaganda and authoritarian leanings of government and corruption in politics, collusion with such things by big tech and the general stupidity, laziness and authoritarian inclination in a large portion of the public.

The scale of the problem was unknown prior to this. We know the score now. We now know we can't rely on any of these institutions and we're better off for it. It's better than thinking you know the score and being dreadfully wrong.

‘Equal Justice, They Said’. VDH

We are now a revolutionary society in decline using the courts, prosecutors, the administrative state, and the law itself to punish enemies, help friends, and declare such asymmetry “social justice.”

‘Biden’s New IRS Agents Should Investigate If This Partisan Teachers Union Is Dodging Its Taxes’
The American Federation of Teachers’ tax returns say it spends zero dollars on politics and does not engage in political activities. The IRS ought to investigate.

E Fox 11:24 - "We now know we can't rely on any of these institutions..."
It's worse than that.
We find now we CAN rely on the arms of the fed govt to be willing tools for the left and the Dems.
And it follows that companies and corps are either 'nudged' or openly coerced into doing what they can to enable policies friendly to the left and the Dems.

mick: noun (often lowercase)Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. a contemptuous term for a person of Irish birth or descent.

Well, we all got a drunken Irishman in the woodshed somewhere, including moi. There is a reason the Irish never conquered anything in their entire history. mick is lower case cause you do not capitalize the W in y-t. Oh, there was one Irishman in the family history that was the tailor for the Queen of England.

All I know is he made something risqué for Her Majesty (or it could have been a wardrobe malfunction)…anyway, as the family story goes, she was so engaged that she ordered his head on a platter. Probably figuratively. So, he skedaddled across the pond to the Colonies or however many States we had at the time, changed his last name, and the Queen must of calmed down after awhile because he drew his pension from Her Majesty’s Treasury until the day he died. Quite progressive of her, all in all. Whether he did the risqué outfit out of malice, mischievousness, got too drunk, or just just seemed like a good idea at the time, we will never know. Boy, his son became rather notorious. American was berry berry good to him. Cornered the wheat market and because of his dastardly deeds, we now have rules on the stock exchange. Probably a century before Nelson Bunker Hunt & Brother cornered the silver market, there was some Irish dude that cornered the wheat market in the 19th Century.

Friggin micks. Always acting like they were slipped a Mickey Finn or downed a couple on purpose.

Did like how once on a Presidential visit to England someone had raised the Union Jack upside down and Tony Blair quipped, “It must of been an Irishman.” Cause a stir, of course.

Not Dilbert too. Well, at least Scott Adams has some long green.

CONSERVATISM IS PROHIBITED

Hmmm. Bed Bath and Beyond stopped carrying My Pillow Guy’s products and now BB&B has announced the closing of 150 stores. I which it was not just a coincidence, but it probably is.

Deliberately hollowing out the forces is the wokesters goal -

The Guard is bleeding out soldiers on multiple fronts. This year, the service component suffered its lowest retention rate since the pandemic began. This comes as the Army as a whole is in the midst of a recruiting slump, with the Guard short roughly 14,500 new soldiers this year, according to internal data reviewed by Military.com. That's in addition to some 40,000 Guardsmen, most from the Army portion of the service, who remain unvaccinated, many of whom will likely be discharged.

This fiscal year, the Army Guard will miss its retention goals by about 14%, or roughly 4,800 soldiers.

New Discourses is the current hangout of James Lindsey, co-author of Cynical Theories, near the top of my reading list.

“Why Orwell matters”
His defence of freedom flies in the face of all that is woke and regressive today.
