‘‘For decades now, our gatekeepers have been involved in an attempt to forge a people without past (or future) by metaphorically destroying or making inaccessible all the stories that don’t support the narrative they want us to believe.  News, History, Stories, even religion, they’ve tried to deprive us of all of them...’’

‘‘...Every tyranny in history has expressed its tyranny through the law.  Everything Hitler, Stalin, or Mao ever did was perfectly legal under the laws of their countries.

‘‘People who worship at the altar of ‘a nation of laws’ forget about that part.  Don’t worship law - it’s only a tool.

‘‘Worship liberty.’’

Diversity is like a streetcar...

End Of the Line  Dept
Jim Lindgren (via Reynolds):
Now that the important work of race and gender integration has succeeded on law school faculties — with the traditional affirmative action groups now matching or exceeding their percentages in the broader lawyer population — the next step should be to desegregate law schools politically.
Too bad all the progressive educationists got off at the last stop.

‘‘The primary purpose of race-talk in America today is to allow elite whites to silence and shame non-elite whites.  Thus, it’s not surprising that the people pushing it are . . . a bunch of elite whites.’’

Narrative, busted (again)

This Time For Sure!  Dept
The Smoking Gun:
The unarmed Wisconsin teenager who was shot to death last night during a confrontation with a Madison cop...
Yes! Yes!  Go on!
... [had] pleaded guilty last year to armed robbery and [was] serving a three-year probation term for that felony conviction...
Dang.  You can just feel the enthusiasm leak out over at the Democrat-media complex.  And this time it got stomped so fast it didn’t even get started.

Oh, and, once again, a demonstration of how soft on crime -> unnecessary deaths. ’Cause if he’d been in jail, this wouldn’t have happened...

The 545 Problem


Bill Quick found this goody at Mike’s place:

The 545 Problem
By Charley Reese

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices — 545 human beings out of the 235 million — are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country...

When you fully grasp the plain truth that [those] 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.  If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.  If the Marines are in Lebanon, it’s because they want them in Lebanon.

There are no insoluble government problems.  Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take it.

Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exist disembodied mystical forces like ‘‘the economy,’’ ‘‘inflation’’ or ‘‘politics’’ that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do...
This was written in 1988.  You’d think we might have learned.

You’d think we might have done something.

Nancy Pelosi ‘‘womans up’’

Drama Queen Politics  Dept
The Hill:
‘‘I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech — saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the [negotiating] nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation...’’
When you’ve got nothin’ else, cry.
