It occurs to me that we could actually destroy our country, bring it to an end, by continuing to do what we’re doing and allowing idiots, fools, thieves, and psychopaths to run the government. Meanwhile, they’re doing a helluva job on our cities. For instance, Asheville, North Carolina.
“Human Relations Commission,” whose stated purpose is “to promote and improve human relations and achieve equity among all citizens by carrying out the city’s human relations programs.”
Aw, yoosh! Carry it out to the curb, willya–so the garbage truck can pick it up.
They’ve got all these racial and sociological boxes to check, so when regular people apply for seats on the board, they’re told to get lost. What they want–to achieve equity–is six Blacks (with a capital B), two Latinx (with the x), two persons aged 18-25, two living in public housing, two sexual deviants… blah-blah=blah. So now they’re being sued by one of those regular persons who was told to hit the road because he couldn’t be used to check off any boxes.
That’s what blithering drooling numbskulls call “equity.”
So all any of us is, is the sum of our externals? This is hopelessly bad. This is how you bring down a civilization. Our cities are failing. Careful not to step in anything as you walk down the sidewalk. And do try to avoid getting stabbed in a vital spot when they mug you.
When the government grows so overlarge that no job is too small, too trivial, too silly, or just plain impossible… well, kimosabe, looks like we’re headed for the end of the road.
