Bracken: When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence

Dark Ages can last for centuries, after sinking civilizations in a vicious, downward vortex. “When the music’s over, turn out the lights,” to quote Jim Morrison of The Doors. Sometimes the lights stay out for a long time. Sometimes civilization itself is lost. Millions of EBT cards flashing zeroes might be the signal event of a terrible transformation.

Horowitz: While Americans are locked up without judicial review, courts grant new rights to criminal aliens!

Let’s review the outcomes from the COVID-19 crisis:

  • Most sweeping restrictions, surveillance, and confinement of Americans indefinitely without due process in the history of America? Check!
  • Endless welfare, debt, and spending? Check!
  • Mass release of criminals? Check!
  • More foreign workers as a time of record unemployment? Check!
  • More rights for illegal aliens to come and remain here? Check!

Why is it that every policy outcome from this crisis is a long-standing liberal priority, even when the several outcomes contradict the rationale underlying some of the others?

New York Will Allow Transgender Minors To Change Sex On Birth Certificate

“It shouldn’t take a minor and his family suing the state to get their rights recognized, but with this announcement, New York state eliminates an outdated and unjust barrier to transgender minors’ ability to be themselves and have accurate, essential identity documents,” Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, senior attorney at Lambda Legal, said in a written statement according to Dallas Voice.

What we have here is a group suing for a minor’s ‘right’ to OFFICIALLY LIE. There is no such thing as a ‘transgender.’ You are born male or female in every cell of your body. Period. Anything else is a mental illness. This will be true until you can change the chromosomes in every cell of your body.

Of course, lying is what the Left does best. Using the police power of the state to assist lying is pure evil.

Federal judge goes nuclear on chief justice and conservatives on U.S. Supreme Court – WND

The face of an idiot

This is Federal ‘judge’ Lynn Adelman who says:

“Rather, the Court’s hard-right majority is actively participating in undermining American democracy,…”

People like this on the courts are dangerous and a threat to the Constitution. This judge is so uneducated and ill-informed that he thinks the United States is a democracy. It isn’t a democracy, for which we should all thank God. It is a representative Republic. A Republic that protects the rights of minorities from the tyranny of the majority.

Go back to law school, ‘judge’ Adelman. Or get a copy of the U.S. Constitution and READ IT!

As for the Supreme Court ‘undermining American democracy’, THAT’S IT’S JOB! SCOTUS is supposed to uphold the Constitution, not some imaginary ‘democracy.’

For Reference Only

Countries that use the Metric System and try to convert their stuff to Standard measurements run into problems with the residual discrepancies in the conversion.

Now I have to check all my measuring tapes.

P.S. From the comments at Bayou Renaissance Man:

We talk and worry about all kinds of technological hijinks – but something as simple as mis-marking measuring tapes could cost another country millions in lost productivity. Partnering with competitors or enemies for ANYTHING is more than a questionable strategy. Lessons learned in the schoolyard still apply.

How to Measure the Temperature of the Earth

If you just look at the thing they are trying to measure and the tools they are using to measure it (including the accuracy of thermometers 100 years ago), you can reasonably presume that this particular science is not very scientific.  On my kitchen wall are three thermometers.  Two use technology vastly superior to what was available 100 years ago.  The third one uses fairly old technology.  They are 17 inches apart.  The room temperature is maintained by a state-of-the-art home heating system.  As I write this, they read 68.0, 70.2, and 73.  (Feel free to try this experiment at home.)
