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.



Liberalism is a Mental Disease by American Elephant

When Al Franken Attacks

Liberalism, progressivism… whatever they’re calling it this week.

Yet more evidence that the Air America/MoveOn.com crowd are stark-raving-lunatics and should not be trusted with sharp objects, let alone national policy.

 Is there anything these people won’t lie about? Well, as it turns out, no:

Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes is temporarily off the air, but cops and her lawyer say reports she was mugged near her Manhattan apartment were bogus.

Fellow host Jon Elliott said on the liberal network that Rhodes was attacked at 39th St. and Park Ave. on Sunday night while walking her dog, Simon.

Elliott, who said Rhodes lost several teeth in the attack, waxed about a possible conspiracy.

“Is this an attempt by the right-wing hate machine to silence one of our own?” he asked on the air, according to the Talking Radio blog. “Are we threatening them?”

A police source said Rhodes never filed a report and never claimed to be the victim of a mugging.

Rhodes’ lawyer Robert Gaulin told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog, but she wasn’t sure exactly what happened. [read more]

I think one of the many psychological issues at play here is known as “projection“. While Republicans aren’t known for instigating violence against political adversaries, the lunatic left has a long track record of it:

Unfortunately, that’s not even scratching the surface.



Nobel Committee Rules: Big Fat Liar Wins Peace Prize by American Elephant

Not two days after the British High Court ruled that Al Gore is a Big Fat Liar, and that his Oscar winning crockumentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” is nothing more than political propaganda bursting with falsehoods, the Nobel Committee has awarded the propagandist the PEACE prize for his work that has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with peace.

Why do liberals hate science so much?

It would be just as appropriate, perhaps even more so, to award the peace prize to Jack LaLanne for his work promoting physical fitness. After all, unlike global warming and cooling cycles, people can actually do something about physical fitness. And unlike Gore, LaLanne isn’t circumnavigating the globe in private jets, limousines, and SUV caravans, spewing millions of pounds of pollutants and “greenhouse gasses” while encouraging governments to force their people to do with less, and then returning to his mega mansion that uses more energy in a month than most of the “little people” use in a lifetime.

But, alas, the truth is not just inconvenient to leftists like the Nobel Prize Committee and Al Gore, its alien. Man-Bear-Pig joins the ranks of such “peace” activists as the terrorist Yassir Arafat; Le Duc Tho who won with Henry Kissinger for signing a “peace with honor” for the Vietnamese people; one of the most disastrous presidents in American history, Jimmy Carter; and the discredited fabulist Rigoberta Menchu.

Meanwhile George Bush who removed Saddam Hussein from power, liberated 50 million Muslims and has done more than any other world leader to address AIDS in Africa, and Ronald Reagan who ended the decades old Cold War without firing a shot — in other words men who actually have advanced peace — are forever blacklisted by the Nobel Committee.

Why do leftists hate peace so much?

Baaaah

…I dont fly with Nepal Airlines any time soon:

KATHMANDU (Reuters) – Officials at Nepal’s state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday. [read more]

Doesn’t really inspire confidence in their tecehnical and mechanical abilities, does it? Poor goats.
