Quick Hits: Decrepit Old Man Experiences "Lost Time" as He Babbles About Trains Edition

Idaho bans the "indoctrination" of students in government schools.

Unfortunately, they stripped out specific language banning the indoctrination of Critical Race Theory into students.

I fear that this means that the gesture will be entirely ineffectual.

The left has gotten hysterical again. This time, itís over a bill currently going through the Idaho legislature that would ban schools from "indoctrinating" students. Leftists claim it bans the teaching of critical race theory. It does not. What it does is make it legal to teach all points of view.

You can imagine how thatís going over on the left.

Several earlier versions of the bill did, indeed, ban critical race theory from being taught. But the final version voted on by the Senate on Tuesday took a much more ecumenical view of teaching history.

Senate Education Chairman Steven Thayn, a Republican, said, "There's no topic banned in the bill, thereís no book banned in the bill. It does not censor history, you can talk about anything in history. ... In fact, it does not ban the teaching of critical race theory, it doesnít ban that. It doesn't ban anything. What it says is that you cannot compel students to adopt or adhere" to certain principles.

And that's a problem for the racial propagandists.

But is it? I imagine there are already -- or were already -- injunctions against teaching students forced to be in class political propaganda, and the teachers and bureaucrats ignored that.

Leftwing newspaper Gannett found to be paying blacks and Karens less than white guys.

Demands for diversity and economic fairness apparently stop at the front door of some newspapers in the nationís largest media chain, Gannett.

In an unusual report on 14 Gannett papers by six reporters from some of those same newspapers, the company that is woke on the raging issues of race and fairness overwhelmingly favors whites in pay and job security.

"Our analysis of salaries in 14 newsrooms at Gannett, the largest newspaper company in the U.S., found pay disparities among women and people of color, as well as a dearth of diversity, in nearly every location that participated," said the report from the Newsguild, part of the Communications Workers of America union.

The chain has been a voice for diversity and equity, but some of those interviewed in the new report said the firm operates by a different code inside its offices.

Oh you don't fuckin' say.

Bar owner says he won't show any NBA games until the NBA bans Queen LeBron James, and says his bar has never been busier.

During a pandemic!

Following all the tweets and posts, Linneman told The Cincinnati Enquirer that heís received a flood of comments, both positive and negative.

"The support for the position has been overwhelmingly positive and has far outweighed the negatives," he said.

Via John Sexton at Hot Air, now that the election was rigged -- um, sorry, I mean, now that the election was fortified by Democrat/socialist operatives and leftwing billionaires' money -- people suddenly feel comfortable admitting that the show they pretended to love for three years, A Handmaid's Tale, is a dour, depressing bore, and they're now Empowered Enough to stop watching it.

The Florida House has forbidden any state monies being paid to any corporation, such as the NCAA, that boycotts the state:

Another "How the elites destroyed America" data point. Just reading something about "How the CIA created identity politics".

CIA and Deep State agencies used the Ford and Rockefeller foundations to start this shit in the '70s. For what reason? Oh, it's a good 'un. They started it to destabilize marxist and communist movements to get them to shit away from economic class. They thought this would corrupt them.

If so, then just as the idea to open up trade to China would export liberal democracy to China, but instead imported Chinese authoritarian oligarchy here, then their genius plan to weaken Communism actually gave them to the tools to destabilize the United States.

Geniuses our Top. Men. Are.

35 I have two trustworthy acquaintances who testified to me that the PC shit started earnestly in the schools in roughly 2010.

The one who graduated in 2007 had an experience much closer to someone who graduated in 1990. In terms of speech, bullying, communication, fighting, etc.

Meanwhile someone who graduated in 2015 basically went to a Nazi PC speech and thought control camp that none of us would recognize (until the last couple years anyway).

This is important to know, because it very obviously came from the top. We have been "nudged", "steered" and catapulted into a brave new world - and we can pinpoint the descent.

"Season two (of Handmaid's Tale) premiered with plotlines that echoed the growing authoritarianism of the administration, while season three's story of stolen children came as immigration at the border surged and tales of adoptions of kids of deported parents and disappeared children were in the news."

Akchually that looks like diesel, that is if a green pump means diesel in other parts of the world (guessing from the van this is South America)? Also, I don't think Ford sells any diesel sedans in the US.

If this was in CA I'd be shit out of luck (unless it WAS diesel) because we have those retarded vapor recirculation things on the pump nozzles. So that means it won't pump unless it senses a vacuum. Which it tends to do on occasion, but usually not when you're trying to pump gas.

I think this was South America, in which case you just KNOW if a car/van comes zipping up to you and stops suddenly, and you're the only one around, shits about to get real. If not carrying a gun (which should have been unholstered before those guys came to a stop) this was the next best thing. If it was gas (I guess diesel), that would feel just awesome.

166 Good read about how much CARB cares about the environment:

https://tinyurl.com/famna68

Spoilers: Not at all. It's all about control.

"Board member William Friedman, a UCLA professor of pediatrics in his day job, says, "Progress will be made if we can continue to stick it to you so that you actually do what you need to do to help our constituency, which is the state of California, and all its kids and all its people."

According to the transcript, there was applause.

Weverstad had given the board a clear choice-cleaner air or symbolism-and it made the popular call: symbolism."

I wonder how much gas has been spilled annually using these techniques since the mandates vs how much was dripped incidentally annually before them. My money is on equal or more, at a cost of billions of dollars. For no gain and much more frustration and inconvenience.

Drugs. Drugs administered by experts. But always right afterwards he's crashing hard. Usually calls a lid for at least 24 hours after one of the big doses. At this point, I don't think they're concerned about possible detriment to his health. The babbling idiot we saw talking about trains is probably the way he is all the time.

I'll admit, I'm impressed they've gotten him to an hour, because for a year they demonstrated a 10 minute and 30 minute formula. But that's been it until recently. Maybe they've got a new cocktail figured out, but I'm sure he'll build a tolerance to it in no-time.

I think the average date in the moron "Joe-gone" pool is mid July, and I'd still buy that. I think fall is pushing it.

I just use a manual suction gun for such as that. The good metal kind, not the plastic ones. The ones I have look the main cylinder of a grease gun. You pull the handle out to suck fluid in. It's great for sucking fluid out of stuff like power steering reservoirs and the like with no drain plugs.

In the earlier stages of dementia/alzheimer's, that's pretty typical. My mother had lots of people fooled, because you had to be with her a lot to see when the failure starts, it's hard and fast. Other times she could be spot on. It's also remarkable that the brain really can run on auto pilot. They can just say/repeat things that "fit" and seem perfectly lucid. But after a while I figured out how to trip her up (short the circuit) and most neurologists can do this as well.

With the right combination of drugs, I have no doubt they can get Joe humming along pretty well. But that's also why he simply cannot allow himself to be questioned by the press. Any little thing could short him out, and once that starts, it's a cascade effect.

They've come up with some seriously fucked up nozzles lately. I just had to buy a can a few months ago, and this is seriously the worst yet. There's nothing you could do to this over-engineered piece of shit. The older ones were still somewhat useable. Maybe I just lucked out on the one I bought (Home Despot I think), but I'll definitely start checking garage sales. I don't have a mower any more, so my need is very infrequent. But when I get the Triumph back from the ex, It'd be nice to have one that works again.
