“We have encountered a technical problem,” simpers the evil computer. “Please try again later.” And again, and again, and again…
I knocked myself out yesterday to write a Newswithviews column, and then the unspeakable devil of a computer refused to send it. This morning we tried for going on 90 minutes to get the thing to work. I even typed the freakin’ column all over again so I could send it on the other machine—with exactly the same result!
I admit I screamed and pounded on the floor.
And of course we couldn’t buy all our regular groceries yesterday, although I was in the store for twice as long as normally, so we had to go back out today and try Whole Foods. It’s not my kind of store. I want regular working-class food, not this hoity-toity past lives stuff. Well, at least I was able to get wax paper, lettuce, and eggs.
I don’t know about you, but for both Patty and me, this Chinese Death Monster Virus scare has begun to take on an air of unreality. Like, are we stuck in some stupid movie somewhere? Is Kevin Kostner going to turn up in our parking lot?
And it’s kind of like being poor, only you have money… but what good is money if there’s nothing you can buy with it? I am too old to take up a whole new way of life, that of being poverty-stricken.
And still I can’t send the flippin’ email. The computer says no, not allowed.
I hate technology.
Somebody must have wondered yesterday, “What happened to Lee’s Newswithviews piece? Where did it go?” Please tell me somebody, somewhere, noticed.
Well, it fell through the cracks–I wonder if that ever happened to William F. Buckley–but here it is now.
An Interview with Western Civilization
Yes, it started life as one of last week’s blog posts. Don’t blame me. It was “TheWhiteRabbit’s” idea. I just thought it was a good one. And my wife thinks this is one of the best things I’ve written, so there.
Leftism is a mortal threat to any civilization.
They’re not shy about their communism; but then why should they be? They own us.
Public education is the all-time dirty deal, a deal that makes suckers of us all: and shame on us for submitting to it.
The All-Time Dirty Deal
We don’t even have an estimate of how much this monstrosity of public school costs America per year. Back in Ronald Reagan’s time, they estimated it was at least half a trillion dollars a year. No one even dares to guess what it is now.
And for all that money we get… gender fluid! Communist teachers’ unions! America the racist hell-hole! All that money, every cent of it worked for and paid out in taxes by us–and we don’t have a nickel’s worth of ownership! No say in anything. Just shut up and pay.
How did we ever get to be so servile?
What piece of the government is this one in charge of?
The nooze we hear every day is getting to be hard to believe. Really! We don’t want to believe that powerful people who run our institutions are as crazy as bedbugs. But that may be unfair to bedbugs.
The News You Won’t Believe
So here are three of the most bizarre stories that the nooze cycle spat up last week; and they’re only a sample. You can surely think of more.
Democrats have totally flipped their lids; and if they can win the next election, it won’t be funny.
Here’s some evidence that they’re crazy.
That Crazy Party
And I didn’t even mention the Green New Deal! Or the appointment of judges who believe the accusation is the evidence and don’t need no stinkin’ trial to reach a verdict.
No, it won’t be funny at all.
There’s no excuse for not knowing what Democrats have in store for us, if they ever get back in power. They’ve made it quite clear.
A Cornucopia of Tyranny
See, you won’t be allowed to disbelieve in The Climate Crisis, or transgender, or a lot of other things, anymore. At least, you certainly won’t be allowed to say you disbelieve in it.
If liberals ever discover how to get inside your brain and weed out all Bad Thoughts, they’ll do it in a New York minute.
I wonder who they’ve got lined up to be the third stooge…
How do they get away with it–hardship and austerity for us, and wallowing in luxury for them? Why does anyone ever listen to them?
More Climate Change Hypocrisy
I haven’t yet found a historical parallel for this weirdness that stands, today, as an existential threat to our liberty and our prosperity–“a mad teenager fronting for a criminal enterprise of global proportions.”
Why are these hypocrites in power?
Prince Charles and Greta–someone ought to strike a “Useful Idiots” commemorative coin.
