‘Idiot: Nancy Drew Will Be “Diverse”‘ (2016)

See the source image

When something ain’t broken, don’t fix it!

The good news is that this wretched little scheme fell through before it could be imposed on us. The bad news, of course, is that it was ever thought of in the first place.

I looked it up. You wanna know why the “new Nancy Drew” never made it to the airwaves. According to TV bigwigs, it was because Nancy Drew was… “too female”!

Give me strength.

How badly did we need another TV s**tcom about hard-bitten New York cops?

And what in the world did that mental Lilliputian mean by promising that Nancy Drew herself would be “diverse”? Clearly he does not know what the word means.

There’s a lot of that going around.

 


Gasp! Study Shows ‘Free Money’ Doesn’t Work

Just when you thought Universal Basic Income’s time had come, when everyone would get paid by the government just for existing… along comes a study that shows it simply doesn’t work (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/06/universal-basic-income-public-realm-poverty-inequality).

Public Services International, a “global trade union federation” (whatever that is), researched UBI “free money” schemes in several places around the world where they’ve been tried–India, Alaska, Finland, Kenya, et al. Not only does it not work; why, it doesn’t do anything to “prevent widening income inequalities”!

If I may interject a question here: Why should incomes be “equal”? Why should diligent, competent, honest people’s incomes be “equal” to those of lazy, incompetent, dishonest people? Why should something really good cost the same as something lousy?

“Income inequality” is a very, very silly thing to be concerned about.

Oh! And the research also discovered–surprise, surprise!–that money paid out to people just for occupying space was no longer available for other purposes, having already been spent as UBI. “Gawrsh, Mickey! Who would’ve expected that?” Goofy wonders. Forsooth, money that’s already been spent can’t be spent on other things!

But if you still think it’s a good idea to pay bone-idle drones to loll on the couch playing video games and watch TV all day and night–well, you’ll always have a place in liberalism.


‘Idiocy on Steroids’ (2014)

Image result for images of mugging

Did you know it’s immoral to resist a mugger? Like, if he “asks” you for your money and you don’t give it to him, that makes you, like, a bad Christian?

Go ahead–tell me that in the four years since I published it, this kind of idiocy has evaporated. Betcha it would take you all of five minutes to find it alive and well in Congress. On the Democrat side of the aisle.

And if you can’t find it there, look in California.
