Reparations?

And last… “There’s another possible reparations issue completely ignored: Blacks as well as whites live on land taken, sometimes brutally, from American Indians. Do blacks and whites owe American Indians anything?” —Walter E. Williams

“White House Asked McGahn to Declare Trump Never Obstructed Justice.” — The New York Times, 5/10/19

Buried: “Reading the report, the President’s lawyers saw that Mr. Mueller left out that Mr. McGahn had told investigators that he believed the President never obstructed justice.”

Do electric cars cause ...

The Tesla was once championed as a zero-emission vehicle, the green dream car of the future. But now investors are looking green around the gills. The Ifo Institute for Economic Research, a German think tank, revealed that when battery production is included, co2 emissions from Tesla and other electric cars exceed those of diesel-powered cars. Driving a Tesla Model 3, for example, produces 156 to 181 grams of co2 per kilometer, versus 141 grams per kilometer for a Mercedes C-Class. You have to lay down some serious green to buy a Tesla ($76,000+) — yet the U.S. continues to green light tax breaks of up to $7,500 per vehicle to Tesla and other electric car makers, according to The Daily Caller.

Let’s face it, you have to be more than a little green to have believed this green fairy tale in the first place. Smug leftist elitists championed the Tesla because Elon Musk was heralded as the savior of the green tech industry, and they wanted to make others green with envy while they pretended to care about the planet. A Wall Street Journal editorial compared the study’s findings to the “false promises about corn and cellulosic ethanol.” So why on God’s green earth are we still subsidizing all this horse excrement?

Spud dud

The chips are down in the uk, literally. According to “Recipe for Disaster” from London’s left-wing Climate Coalition, 2018’s hot and dry weather “cut more than one inch off the size of the average chip.” (For those of you in Rio Linda, fries are known as “chips” in the uk; potato chips are called “crisps.”) The report’s author, who clearly has a chip on his shoulder, warns that “British-grown potatoes, vegetables, and fruit are at risk” as “growers struggle to cope with extreme and unpredictable weather.” Because farmers have never before in history had to cope with heat or drought, apparently.

The Climate Coalition’s bargaining chip? Guilt. They want every Brit subject to chip in to chip away at global warming by cutting their carbon emissions. Otherwise, Great Britain might as well cash in their chips and admit that uk spuds are duds and their taters are tots. I say, let the chips fall where they may.

Education gone wild

A high school in Shepherdsville, KY tried to fill the knowledge gap for the selfie generation. As reported by Wave 3 News, Bullitt Central High School seniors had an Adulting Day, to learn practical skills for real life. The school’s Family Resource & Youth Services Center organized the event, which brought in people from the community. Real-world adults taught the senior class how to change a tire, manage a credit card, cook in a dorm room, and handle finances. Police explained how to behave during traffic stops. And because these kids are, well, snowflakes, there was a speaker on how to deal with homesickness at college.

What’s sad about this, folks, is that before liberals took over education, practical-life instruction was normal fare in every school across the fruited plain. Now schools are more invested in indoctrinating kids on the politically correct pronouns for all 63 genders.

Wacky

peta is up to its eggsasperating tactics again. As reported by The San Francisco Chronicle, a San Jose, CA peta billboard of an egg-faced woman included a message eggsclaiming: “Face it — you can’t claim to be a feminist and eat eggs. Eggs and dairy are a product of the abuse of females.” Apparently, eating eggs eggsploits chickens that self-identify as hens.

peta spokeschick Marissa Price eggsplained, “In this ad, we’re asking people to go vegan in solidarity with female animals who are being sexually abused.” (Which makes absolutely no sense; chickens lay eggs with or without a rooster.) In this #MeToo (#BeakToo?) era, peta says it picked San Jose because it is a city full of “strong women.” For this, eggsceptional brains not required.

Border security

“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!” — President Trump, on Twitter, 7/29/18

“At the beating heart of this election is border security. We have to have it.” — President Trump, at West Virginia rally, c-span, 8/21/18

 

The sound you hear is the political class quaking with fear and fury. We’ve been told that “the third rail of politics” for elected officials is anything to do with Social Security reform — touch it, and you die, supposedly. The truth is, the real third rail of modern American politics is any attempt to stop illegal immigration. The establishment — of both parties — has no interest in that. Zip, zero, nada.

Dumbing down continues

According to People, schools in the UK are removing analog clocks from classrooms — because kids can’t read them. So, do they teach the students how to tell time the old-fashioned way? No. They give up. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” explains Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders in England. According to The [UK] Telegraph, many high school students “were only able to tell time on digital devices.” What are they going to do next, take down Big Ben?

This is nuts. Analog clocks are still in use all over the world. Instead of using taxpayer money to replace clocks, it’s high time high school students learned how to give someone the time of day. First it was millennials unable to add or subtract without a calculator, then it was banning cursive writing, and now it’s removing clocks. School administrators should have their clocks cleaned. Teachers need to lay off the 64 genders lesson plans, and start in with “when the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 1…” What would it take, 15 minutes? Time’s up for stupid.
