American Elephants


Strange Times and Getting Stranger and Stranger by The Elephant's Child

It is getting remarkably weird out there. Have you noticed? College students are deciding what speakers will be allowed on campus, what professors are allowed to say in the classroom. When I was in college, students were often sent on home to get their heads around the fact that they were there to study and learn, not to run the school, but perhaps I date myself.

It seems that the workers at Amazon have told management that Amazon should boycott the Big Oil companies, I guess to save the environment, but the environment is not disturbed by the oil companies, and the products that Amazon sells, arrive on transportation powered by the oil companies, and a significant number of the products they sell are made from petroleum products. Besides, the globe has warmed all of about 2.2° F. in the last 40 years. But somehow “climate change” has become the world’s most serious problem. Must poll well.

I suspect this is a matter of what polls well for the Democrats. Victor Davis Hanson’s column today pointed out that the sudden appearance of the “reparations” for slavery theme seems to be related to a fear by Democrats of a movement of blacks towards Trump in response to the decrease in black unemployment and the FIRST STEP act to cut back on the numbers of blacks in prison. Obviously the better approach would be to give black citizens free money because their great grandparents (or great-great) were slaves? Do people really think that way? Well, free money is always popular.

It seems that Alexa and her compatriots are always listening and recording what you say. No privacy any more. Siri is Apple, and I don’t know who all the sisters are. Seems like the Chinese control of their citizens may presage our future.
