A classic from The Babylon Bee, via @SCReviews.

The left beclowns itself again as it complains that the OG Slasher Michael Meyers of the Halloween franchise is "homophobic" because he killed a gay couple in the newest sequel of the oft-rebooted and very lame franchise. They're not complaining of the large number of straight people he killed.

To be honest, I don't know if these are real complaints or SJW critics trying to make some trouble for #WokeHollywood by using their own rulebook against them.

Biden has finally ordered the government to fund the wall.

The taxpayer-funded wall around his beach house, I mean.

The Department of Homeland Security will spend nearly a half-million dollars for a Delaware construction company to build a fence around President Joe Biden's beach house.

...

Construction of Biden's security fence comes as the president faces a record-high surge of illegal immigrants at the southern border. Border Patrol agents this year detained more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, the highest total ever recorded, according to the Washington Post.

One of Biden's first actions in office was halting construction of former president Donald Trump's border wall. Homeland Security this month canceled remaining contracts for building the wall.

Here's some more of that Fake Outrage Culture War stuff that Obama was complaining about:

Quotes at Twitchy.

Bernie Sanders' wife should worry: AOC puts on the bedroom eyes in talking about her late-night sesh's with her socialist hero.

Wonder no more:

A teacher has been placed on leave for an "offensive" math lesson in which she wore an Indian headdress and performed a mock-Indian dance.

I saw this on Libs of Tik Tok last week.

Do you guys recognize what she's chanting and what she's trying to drill into students' heads?

I have mixed feelings about this because this is exactly how I learned "SOHCAHTOA," the trigonometry mnemonic for remembering how to calculate the Sine, Cosine, and Tangent of an angle. Sine = the side opposite the angle you're solving for divided by the hypotenuse (SOH), Cosine = the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse (CAH), and Tangent = the opposite side over the adjacent side (TOA).

I think two teachers or more used the line about the Great Chief SOHCAHTOA inventing trigonometry. One teacher did a more low-key version of the SOHCAHTOA chant. Not with a headdress or dancing, but doing the SOHCAHTOAH SOHCAHTOA SOHCAHTOA chant.

And here's the thing: It worked. I thought of Sohcahtoa last weekliterally days before this story came out. (I'm slightly psychic in a completely useless way.)

I was trying to think of an Indian place-name and thought "Sohcahtoa," and then realized: Oh wait, that's the trigonometry mnemonic. That's not really an Indian place-name.

And within fifteen seconds I worked out what each letter stood for.

So, it works. And I bet that 99% of the students of the past 100 years have learned SOHCAHTOA as an Indian chant.

This woman went to town on it, but I know why she was doing it. She was trying to give the students a lesson they wouldn't forget. She made herself ridiculous so that the memory would stick in their brains.

And honestly, I don't really understand how parodying a bit of a culture is "offensive." Teachers have been saying "Great Chief Sohcahtoa" for 100 years because it does sound like an Indian word.

But whatever, let's crucify the Math Racist.

If you're going to make something a cancellable offense, is there... zero time allowed before the announcement of the policy and its enforcement?

The SJWs are a bunch of robots who click the "Download and Install" button the moment there's any minor iterative update to their programming, and then expect everyone else to be Good Little Robots like they are.

A more optimistic story: Dads On Duty.

They have two children who are exactly what you'd expect from being raised by their parents in the hoity-toity Silicon Valley moneyed suburbs. Both of these asshats have multiple degrees in Childhood Development and Education. Neither has set foot in a classroom. And both of them work for a well-known and very profitable curriculum publishing company.

These two clowns are the ones feeding your kids the garbage you're trying to un-do as a parent every night.

Delilah got a Group 1 at yesterday's Bell County KC show, her her 20th this year and her 31st lifetime, tying her illustrious grandmother Lacey's mark.

Who's had the better record? I keep detailed spreadsheets of show results for all our specials. At the same age, Lacey had more breed and all-breed points and more group placements. But by then Lacey competed in 80 more shows than Delilah. Looking at the first 211 shows of each one's specials career, it's Lila by a good margin.

Both had a National Specialty BIS (Lacey in her very last show) and a Westminster Best of Breed.

Both great girls who loved to show. Attitude is important to success in the ring.

92 I think the big place for stealth inflation is services. Go to a store and check out yourself, or go to a hotel and your room doesn't get cleaned. Go to a restaurant and you don't get a menu and the service is slow.

An economist recently made the point that normally we see quality improvements that help balance out higher prices. E.g., new or better products. But with COVID and the employment shortage, we're seeing reductions in quality. This means that inflation, high as they're saying it is, is being badly underestimated an the real inflation rate is much higher. F. Joe Biden!

105 Yep, "fake outrage" is exactly the term for parents learning and then objecting to their kids being fed idiotic racist hate propaganda by stupid over-paid public "education" drones.

But the outrage is about 30 years too late, and of course needed to happen in reaction to the far more subtle but equally poisonous vandalism that has taken over the system.

Meanwhile, the tag line from the op-ed is a candidate for unintentional self-parody of all time: students need to "think for themselves". Yep, that really sums up the approach of most American "education" for decades now. Jeebus.

"Here's a right triangle. The long side is the hypotenuse. This is an acute angle. The side that touches this angle is 'adjacent', the side opposite is 'opposite'. Cosine, (think co-pilot) is adjacent over hypotenuse. Sin, the opposite of cosine is opposite over hypotenuse. Tangent is opposite over adjacent. The test is on Friday."

190 "mnemonic"? My teachers had yardsticks."

We had blackboards, good texts, fairly competent teachers, and students who paid attention and did drill homework. Cripes, that was soooo long ago! 1960s, when America really cared about STEM, and the boys loved STEM. We all wanted to be scientists and astronauts.

Now the kids just watch cartoons and teachers who act like cartoon characters, and the students pass no matter how badly they do.

It's a useful thing, because if you need to derive an angle, say if you're designing a porch or something, you can split the angle into rights no matter what, and use a basic scientific calculator to figure it out by pressing tan-1 or cos-1 or sin-1 (x/y).

Every teacher on the planet tells them to put away their phones when they see them. If the kid is being blatant about it, the phone goes into the teacher's desk.

The fact that a kid video recorded a teacher isn't proof the teacher isn't doing this. It's proof kids are sneaky little shits who will pull out their phone at the drop of a hat and that policing phones in class is a constant battle.

Anyone who claims they have a simple answer for this is only proving they have no idea what they're talking about. Oh, and if you confiscate a phone, you'd better look after that thing like it's your child. If it goes missing, you're buying that kid a new $800 phone.

my son's school some of the teachers have a single big bag they all go in, but some have slots for each guy. and the phones go in there.

that said, they are allowed to take notes on a laptop so you can still kind of screw around with that if you really want to

She did it because she doesn't know math. She probably would score under tenth percentile on the math GRE. In my shithole school district, some geometry classes do not teach proofs. What is geometry without proofs? It's garbage.

"How do you feel about parallel lines? Do they have enough equity?"

284 my son's school some of the teachers have a single big bag they all go in, but some have slots for each guy. and the phones go in there.

The bag sounds unworkable. The first time some little shit grabs someone else's phone at the end of class, you're buying someone a new phone.

but no I don't think it's all that hard to disallow phones during class

Oh, no. It's easy-peasy. All you have to do is say, "no phones."

The hard part isn't having a rule. The hard part is how much of your time you're willing to devote to policing the rule. In schools where most of the kids are obeying the rules and Admin backs up the teachers, it's probably not a big deal. In schools where kids end up with in lunchtime detention for laying hands on a teacher, you're up shit creek.

The best you can do is tell the kids no phones, take the phones from the kids who are being blatant about it, and if the kid is willing to fight you over keeping his phone, hope that Admin will show up to help kick the kid out of class.

289 Aunt Fritzi was pretty hot, ya gotta admit.

Nancy
started out in the 1920s as a comic called Fritzi Ritz about a young woman trying to break into the movies. Bushmiller later took over the strip, but it wasn't until several years later that Nancy herself came along and eventually sidelined Fritzi to the point where the strip was called Nancy.

Trivia: Bushmiller based his version of Fritzi and her boyfriend Phil Fumble on himself and his wife Abby.

Here's what she looked like in the 20s:

Goddamn right they're political. You know what else is political? Ejecting moonbats from our social contract.
