Buying votes is a felony under Florida law, but what the heck? Just try to chuck the former New York mayor and current multi-billionaire into jail.
Y’know, he wouldn’t have tolerated any such shenanigans in New York while he was mayor. But his hatred of President Donald Trump has overthrown his reason. You may remember he blew off hundreds of millions of dollars on his own embarrassingly futile bid for the Democrat presidential nomination. His performance in the debates was eye-poppingly ineffectual.
Oh! And did we mention that Bloomberg’s bribes are only being offered to black ex-convicts? So what are white jailbirds–chopped liver? But it’s getting so a Democrat can hardly brush his teeth at night without bringing racism into it.
Democrats honestly don’t care how much damage they do to our country, as long as they get back in power.
“The aim of social justice,” he declared, “is the establishment of the millenium–without God.” This has been true from the beginning, when the serpent said to Eve, “Ye shall be as gods.”
Now, 32 years later, America is convulsed with riots in her streets, all in the name of Social Justice. But as Mr. Sauer points out, the only relevant consideration, to Social Justice Warriors, is the utopian end: any means to get there are permissible.
This morning I have no Facebook connection at all. When I try to reconnect, WordPress tells me it’s “not allowed.” What?
Is this all to force me to use their shiny new “block editing”? Well, I can’t use it! And I don’t want to use it! I’m here to write, not sod around with computers.
WordPress acts more like an adversary than the provider of a service. But of course if I leave I’ll lost an archive numbering thousands of posts.
No wonder I’m down 120 views a day.
P.S.–Jill has found other Facebook buttons I can use, so at least I can go back to sharing my blog posts on my wife’s Facebook page. The only drawback is that the new buttons don’t tell me how many readers have shared the post. Maybe it’s a WordPress glitch that’ll go away. I don’t know.
I think of the British martyrs, going all the way back to Saints Aaron and Julius, and St. Alban, in Roman times–and if grieves me to see the state of our mother country. Not that we’re exactly swimming in holiness on this side of the Atlantic.
A professor of politics at Converse College, South Carolina, has kept his job after refusing to take “mandatory diversity training.”
Associate Professor Jeff Poelvoorde called the mandatory indoctrination “an assault to the dignity and intelligence of the professoriate, in fact, an insult to anyone’s intelligence and dignity” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15739).
The college had threatened him with termination if he didn’t take the so-called course; but when he stood up to them, they backed down. They must’ve known they couldn’t possibly win an inevitable lawsuit, and didn’t want to shell out for damages.
Could we have a lot more of this, please! Here’s a brave man who’s shown the way–follow him through the breach. “Diversity training” is garbage that has to be scooped up and thrown away forever.
Was this a hit when I was eight years old, or what? Walt Disney’s Zorro–and you can bet there was a whole lot of swordfightin’ goin’ on in our neighborhood!
Now hardly anybody had color TV back then, but we knew from Zorro bubblegum cards that the show was filmed in color. And of course Zorro had a lot of adventures at night, wearing a black mask and cape and riding a black horse–so how much color did you need?
This show generated pulse-pounding excitement among us kids. I don’t think TV shows can generate that kind of excitement anymore. Maybe because there are so many of them. Maybe because Walt Disney’s dead and the company he founded has gone over to the dark side.
Anyhow, Zorro was way cool–and so was his alter ego, Don Diego–and we all wanted to grow up to be like him. And how was that bad?
Ragnar the Happy Puppy, once a business associate of Byron the Quokka, has found that the “301 Whatsit Permanently Moved” message that used to scuttle my Facebook posts is now gone as mysteriously as it came; and also the little “share” buttons now have numbers in them again (WordPress blames that glitch on Facebook).
I would like to know, now, if my readers are able to share my posts with others on Facebook. I’m sure some of you have given up trying. But the only way I’ll know if it’s working is for readers to share my posts. The more it gets shared, the higher the little number in the button. Sorry, but that’s about as hi-tech as my language gets.
For that matter, yes, I do know that many of us have learned to despise Facebook, and for good reason. But for the time being, that’s what I have and that’s what I must use.
Meanwhile, I’m short 100 views a day, or more–still haven’t solved that mystery. But if a bunch of you each share two or three posts, at least I’ll know it.
P.S.–Since I wrote this, all the little numbers in the blue buttons have disappeared again. You could just scream.
Meanwhile, Re-Farmer has reported that she was able to share my posts on Facebook if she visited the blog through Google Chrome instead of Firefox.
When can we stop wearing the stupid face masks? When the Chinese Communist Doomsday Virus pandemic is over? And when would that be?
Oh, but Far Left Crazy has a great idea! Wear the face masks forever! For the rest of your life! ‘Cause even if COVID-19 goes away (which it won’t!), there’s always gonna be one or two other diseases out there that all-wise, all-powerful Government MUST prevent from making people sick!
It’s ideology, stupid. It goes like this. A. There is no God. B. That’s no problem, because the state can do everything God would do, or should do, if He really existed. Just think of Sammy Davis Jr. singing “The government can!” C. The more power Government gets, and the bigger it grows, the more it can do for us. D. If we keep on feeding it and growing it, the state will eventually be God (or good as) and nothing bad will ever be allowed to happen to anyone ever again.
But, see, for all that wonderful stuff to happen, the state has to control people’s behavior–at least until Science can find a way to control people’s thoughts as well.
This is Satanic ideology. A seduction brewed up in Hell. The devil’s rather proud of it: with it he’s ensnared whole nations.
