Good Morning Campers,
Tuesday night, during the minor elections … well, I shouldn’t say minor, because they were quite important to the states that were running them … the leftist pundits on the MSNBC were practically in tears with the Republican wins that were going on. They were making ALL kinds of excuses, from what I understand, I say from what I understand because I was quite busy throwing darts at the time and picked up what I saw next from video taped copies just a little while ago.
Anyway, the clip that I saw showed Joy Reid from MSNBC who was blaming one of the loses on and I’m quoting here because I had to replay the video several times to get the wording exactly right: “It was ‘education’ (and she used air quotes around the word education) … let me start again, so you get the full impact of her bullshit … “It was ‘education’, which is code for white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race.” No, “Ms. Reid”, which is code for intelligent people who think you are a blathering idiot, it has nothing to do with teaching about race and everything to do with teaching our children reading, writing, and arithmetic and NOT teaching them that they are inherently evil because they were born a certain color. Isn’t that the same racism that you are so adamantly against? Yup. You insufferable, disgusting racist. Telling parents that they do not have the right to tell school boards what they should be teaching their children is WRONG! And parents, School boards are elected positions, you don’t like who’s on the school boards, get rid of their asses and elect someone else!
“Education” is code for white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race! Have you ever heard anything so asinine in your entire life! I don’t watch MSNBC or CNN because I think it’s a load of horse crap served up by people who should be ashamed of themselves for spewing such lies and self-serving non-sense, but we used to have laws put in place by the FCC. Shouldn’t they put stations like that off the air for hazardous communication or fouling the airwaves or indecency or something? Come on!
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for this morning that’s stuck in my craw. I think we ought to get on with the laughs at this point.
I see a lot of really good and scary stuff on China that I can’t share with you, so when someone sends me something that’s open source (that means out in the public) that’s good and worth reading, I have to pass it on. This is well worth reading and you guys should really take heed. I don’t know that there’s anything that can be done about it … but it’s still worth reading. Especially since we all know who’s in bed with China. Thanks to Sasquatch for passing this along.
A very sobering message, especially to politicians. Real Time” host Bill Maher closed his show Friday night by sounding the alarm on China’s growing dominance over the United States.
“You’re not going to win the battle for the 21st century if you are a silly people. And Americans are a silly people,” Maher began the monologue, alluding to a “Lawrence of Arabia” quote.
Do you know who doesn’t care that there’s a stereotype of a Chinese man in a Dr. Seuss book? China,” he said. “All 1.4 billion of them couldn’t give a crouching tiger flying f— because they’re not a silly people. If anything, they are as serious as a prison fight.”
Maher acknowledged that China does “bad stuff” from the concentration camps of Uyghur Muslims to its treatment of Hong Kong. But he stressed, “There’s got to be something between an Authoritarian Government that tells everyone what to do and a representative Government that can’t do anything at all.”
“In two generations, China has built 500 entire cities from scratch, moved the majority of their huge population from poverty to the middle class, and mostly cornered the market in 5G and pharmaceuticals. Oh, and they bought Africa,” Maher said, pointing to China’s global Silk Road infrastructure initiative. He continued: “In China alone, they have 40,000 kilometers of high-speed rail. America has none. … We’ve been having Infrastructure Week every week since 2009 but we never do anything. Half the country is having a never-ending woke competition deciding whether Mr. Potato Head has a d— and the other half believes we have to stop the lizard people because they’re eating babies. We are a silly people.
“Nothing ever moves in this impacted colon of a country. We see a problem and we ignore it, lie about it, fight about it, endlessly litigate it, Sunset Clause it, kick it down the road, and then write a Bill where a half-assed solution doesn’t kick in for 10 years,” Maher explained.
“China sees a problem and they fix it. They build a dam. We debate what to rename it.”
Then he cited how it took “ten years” for a bus line in San Francisco to pass its environmental review and how it took “16 years” to build the Big Dig tunnel in Boston, comparing that to a 57-story skyscraper that China built in “19 days” and Beijing’s Sanyuan Bridge, which was demolished and rebuilt in “43 hours.”
“We binge-watch, they binge-build. When COVID hit Wuhan, the city built a quarantine center with 4,000 rooms in 10 days and they barely had to use it because they quickly arrested the rest of the disease,” Maher said. “They were back to throwing raves in swimming pools while we were stuck at home surfing the dark web for black market Charmin.
We’re not losing to China, we lost. The returns just haven’t all come in yet. They’ve made robots that check a kid’s temperature and got their asses back in school. Most of our kids are still pretending to take Zoom classes while they watch TikTok and their brain cells fully commit ritual suicide.”
Maher then blasted Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, accusing him of degrading school standards by eliminating merit and substituting a lottery system for admittance to schools for advanced learners.
“Do you think China’s doing that, letting political correctness get in the way of nurturing their best and brightest?” Maher continued. “Do you think Chinese colleges are offering courses in ‘The Philosophy of Star Trek, ‘The Sociology of Seinfeld,’ and ‘Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse’? Those are real and so is China. And they are eating our lunch. And believe me, in an hour, they’ll be hungry again.”
