I love Walter Williams, and he’s on target today. Check out his brilliant townhall.com column, “Can We Trust the Experts?”
Dr. Williams has collected a little treasure chest full of some of the most tomfool things “the experts” have ever said about a variety of subjects. I think my favorite is the prediction that “the horse is here to stay” and automobiles are just a fad.
If you turn to Robert Knight’s column on townhall.com today (https://townhall.com/columnists/robertknight/2018/02/13/free-money-and-pigeons-n2448155), you will find Yours Truly being quoted–in the national media, no less.
The column is about the Stockton, California, mayor’s lunatic scheme to give “the poor” a Universal Basic Income–free money, just for… well, nothing. And its likely effects on the poor devils who will have to keep working to pay for this.
UBI is a favorite fantasy of Democrats and other leftids, and deserves every brickbat we can throw at it.
Here’s a link to my original blog post from a few days ago (https://leeduigon.com/2018/02/05/city-to-embark-on-mad-experiment/).
Thank you, Bob, for helping me to be heard.
I’ve long admired Walter Williams and enjoyed his commentaries, and I want to draw your attention to the Townhall.com column he published on July 5 (https://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2017/07/05/colleges-islands-of-intolerance-n2349890)
This is a bulls-eye for Dr. Williams: “The primary blame for the incivility and downright stupidly we see on university campuses lies with the university’s trustees… who are little more than yes men for the university president and provost.”
The trustees control the universities’ purse strings, and they’ve been letting faculty and students get away with overt barbarism. This is because, says Williams, they’re busy with other things and just “not interested” in taking an active part in how their universities behave.
Well, they’d better get interested, and soon. This has gone more than far enough.
If you’ve had occasion lately to visit townhall.com or National Review Online, you may have noticed supposedly conservative columnists, when they aren’t actually curled up in a posture of total and abject submission, frantically trotting out an army of unnamed “gay friends.” What does that mean? Let me translate:
“I have lots and lots of gay friends! That means it’s okay for me to advocate for just a reasonable little bitty amount of religious freedom without being publicly roasted as a Hater and stripped of my livelihood.” As long as you have gay friends, I guess it means you’re allowed to take very cautiously conservative stands on social issues.
Only trouble is, gays being such a micro-minority, there just ain’t enough of ’em to go around! Apparently everybody needs at least one gay friend these days, to show the world his heart’s in the right place and to avoid being dragged before one of those “human rights” agencies and stomped on.
Recognizing the demand, our friends at American Stunata Corp. have recruited hundreds of gay men, lesbians, and trans-whatsits to be rented out as “Gay Friends at Need.” Try our special introductory offer! For a low monthly fee of $250, a certified Gay Person will testify–any time, anywhere–that he or she is your friend! That way, maybe the news media and the human rights agencies don’t force you to sell your house…
