Egads the stupid is deep with this one
Comedian Sarah Silverman got an earful from her social media followers on Sunday after appearing to mistake a pair of bright orange construction markings for swastikas painted by neo-Nazis.
The 46-year-old comedian wrote that she was on her way to get coffee when she noticed the markings on the sidewalk.
Of course, Silverman’s followers were quick to point out that the markings were, in fact, innocuous markings used in construction, often to designate a spot for which there is a pipe or a wire underneath.
So much more amusing because she mocks the intellect of Conservatives all the time. Smooth move Sarah!
The Left has been screaming that President-Elect Trump is picking people to lead federal agencies they are critical of. Of course picking people who are critical is a positive, or could be anyway. These people might actually bring some positive changes, like, less regulations, lower budgets, and yes, common sense! Take the EPA for example
But alas, now comes the federal government to tell the inhabitants of Alaska’s interior that, really, they should not be building fires to keep themselves warm during the winter. The New York Timesreports the Environmental Protection Agency could soon declare the Alaskan cities of Fairbanks and North Pole, which have a combined population of about 100,000, in “serious” noncompliance of the Clean Air Act early next year.
Like most people in Alaska, the residents of those frozen cities are burning wood to keep themselves warm this winter. Smoke from wood-burning stoves increases small-particle pollution, which settles in low-lying areas and can be breathed in. The EPA thinks this is a big problem. Eight years ago, the agency ruled that wide swaths of the most densely populated parts of the region were in “non-attainment” of federal air quality standards.
That prompted state and local authorities to look for ways to cut down on pollution from wood-burning stoves, including the possibility of fining residents who burn wood. After all, a declaration of noncompliance from the EPA would have enormous economic implications for the region, like the loss of federal transportation funding.
The problem is, there’s no replacement for wood-burning stoves in Alaska’s interior. Heating oil is too expensive for a lot of people, and natural gas isn’t available. So they’ve got to burn something. The average low temperature in Fairbanks in December is 13 degrees below zero. In January, it’s 17 below. During the coldest days of winter, the high temperature averages -2 degrees, and it can get as cold as -60. This is not a place where you play games with the cold. If you don’t keep the fire lit, you die. For people of modest means, and especially for the poor, that means you burn wood in a stove—and you keep that fire lit around the clock.
Of course the reality is that heat is as valuable as food or water. Extreme cold will kill you, but that is reality. central planners do not deal in reality. They deal in idealsim, and idealism is winless when pitted against reality, but that will never dissuade the central planning morons. The EPA, of course, is not alone in its well intended idiocy, pojt put any federal agency, or department, and you can find waste, over regulation, and policies that hurt real people and often make issues the agency is supposed to help worse rather than better.
That rumbling sound you hear is George Washington rolling in the ground Dave Blount sums it up
This is what happens when children reach physical if not mental adulthood without ever receiving needed spankings or even hearing the word “no”:
I would argue that this is also a glaring sign of how detached from reality and critical thinking these students are
Protesting students at George Washington University say forcing them to be protected by campus police is akin to an “act of violence” — because police officers support Donald Trump.
So, all police voted from Trump? And because an officer supported Trump they are likely to hurt people? This is what happens when you teach kids that hating people who vote or think differently than they do is acceptable.
The students have demanded campus leaders direct money to several diversity programs to rectify the situation, one of several demands lodged with administrators recently as left-leaning students at the private, Washington D.C.-based university reel from Trump’s election.
Ah yes, these little Stalinist starter kits have “demands”. Let’s have a peek at said demands
“The university must re-channel its resources and money to its fundamental requirement: to protect its students,” the demand letter reads. “This safety must not depend on the University’s police. The Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the United States, has formally endorsed President-Elect Donald Trump. The FOP includes over 10,000 members in Washington D.C., many of which have jurisdiction over GW’s campus. Placing us in these officers’ care is an act of violence, especially for Black students.”
I wonder what would happen if one of these miscreants little snots were to call police and the police said “hey, tough luck. We do not want to victimize you.” Wanna bet the students would be irate that the police did not do their job? Of course, 99% of these officers would respond and help the endangered student no matter of their politics. In other words, the police would be what these students are not. TOLERANT! And speaking of being intolerant bigots, which is what these students are, look at some of their other demands.
The school must always assert itself on the side of students of color
Is this not racist? To assume guilt for students who are “not of color”. Would this not mean no legal resource or any ability for a redress of grievances for White students?
GWU cannot harbor “structural Islamophobia”or interfere with Muslim students’ attire.
In other words Muslims would get special privileges to scream Islamophobia at the drop of a hat, a hat they would most likely be dropping
GWU must “increase the acceptance of Palestinian international students to prevent their genocide at the hands of Israel”
Sure, because Israel, which actually practices honoring freedom of religion and actual tolerance, and which treats women as equals is evil to the Left
Sexual assault claims must always be believed
Oops, there goes innocent until proven guilty, another American value trashed by the Left.
Just wait till you listen to this. PC kills folks. Willful blindness indeed!
