DYSPEPSIA GENERATION

We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Uncivil Religion

20th November 2017

ZMan digs a little deeper.

It seems that the calls for “unity” have coincided with the spread of the American civic nationalism stuff. Thirty years ago, no public figure talked about “who we are” or made grand claims about a unified America culture. In fact, the lack of conformity was the gold standard of intellectual rigor. Democrats used to claim they had so much internal debate, it was like herding cats. Republicans used to crow about being the party of ideas, meaning that they had the bulk of free thinkers and dissident chattering skulls.

It’s not a coincidence that the flowering of the civic religion stuff has coincided with increasing calls for unity and now the un-personing panics. Religions, particularly in their growth phase, are highly intolerant of competing religions. It’s why the Left, even today, attacks Christianity. They see it as competition. In order to have a civic religion, it means stamping out ideas and movements that contradict it, even if those ideas are rooted in observable reality. In the name of unity, dissent must be crushed, along with the dissenter.

The Left is full of trendy little sects these days. Eco-Nazism is certainly a religion; just listen to the way they talk. Diversitaranism is certainly a religion; anyone who believes that adjusting a workforce so that the percentages of each ethnic group matches those in the general population automatically guarantees success is searching for the Promised Land.

Donald Trump’s attempt to control the US Justice System is alarmingly similar to Hitler’s strategy in Nazi Germany  Except that it’s no different from any other President’s ‘attempt to control the judicial system’, including Obama’s and Clinton’s.

House Republicans pass $1.5 trillion tax bill that would benefit Trump  NOTHING ELSE is so important as whether or not it would benefit Trump.

Twirling

17th November 2017

Read it.

I half-watched Laura Ingraham’s show Thursday night. One of her guests was a woman who said she was sexually harassed by a politician 10 or 15 years ago. This woman said that the politician told her that she looked great, and asked her to twirl. She said that this made her feel like a piece of meat. She did it anyway, and nothing else ever happened. She says that she is still friends with the politician who asked her to twirl.

Am I wrong to not take this woman seriously? Am I wrong to consider this woman a snowflake? Laura Ingraham seemed to be horrified by the woman’s account of being asked to twirl. That scares me; it scares me that even among some conservatives, this sort of thing apparently is considered sexual harassment.

We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Told ya so.

The Alleged Tax Cut

17th November 2017

You will notice, in all this talk of a ‘tax cuts’, that the underlying theme is that any ‘tax cuts’ be ‘paid for’.

What this means is, that any changes result in no net decrease in tax revenues for the government.

How is this a ‘tax cut’? IT ISN’T.

If taxes are changed, but at the end of the process the government still has the same amount of tax revenue, then IT IS NOT A TAX CUT. It is a tax re-arrangement. In a tax re-arrangement, some people wind up paying less tax, and other people wind up paying more.

In other words, this is an attempt to shift the tax burden from some favored people to some unfavored people. Once again, the government is picking winners and losers, using taxpayers’ own money as the carrot and stick.

This is a cornerstone of proglodyte politics. No matter what happens, the amount of money that government takes from the people who earn it cannot be allowed to go down. The contest then becomes a fight over who gets to be winners and who losers in the subsequent re-arrangement. That’s the sort of fight that lobbyists for special interests live for (and get paid big bucks for), and how proglodytes make their living (and accrue their power).

Somebody ought to point out to Republican legislators that they ought to be deeply embarrassed by participating in this charade.

Facts, Factoids, Feelings and Naught

16th November 2017

Freeberg sorts through the trash.

Someone’s been hitting Snopes a bit too hard. And I seek to criticize them for it, not for any hard-linkage to the now thoroughly discredited lefty-leaning “debunking” website, but for their borrowing of the flawed methodology. And the rest of us should pay attention, for this is an object lesson in “How, and why, liberals are to blame for most of, in fact nearly all, of the pointless arguing.”

Here is the problem with debunking things with feelings. The unstated but unavoidable conclusion Darrell seeks to prove, that there is no institutional anti-Trump pro-Obama bias at work, is patently absurd. But, you’ll notice, all the facts he puts out are technically true. This isn’t because his point has merit overall, it’s because there is so little fact in what he says, and so much feeling. It’s like opening a large Amazon package and finding eighty to ninety percent of the volume is taken up by those cushy air pillows, and you got half as much toothpaste as you thought you were getting.

This is why persons today of sane mind, don’t want liberals running anything, anywhere. Modern liberalism is all about, among other things: My feelings are all-important; yours don’t count for squat.

Environmentalism’s Worsening Anti-Human Infection

Congress Has a Pervert Problem

16th November 2017

Read it.

It would be nice to think that I was not the only person who watched Tuesday’s congressional hearing regarding sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill and felt pronouncedly stupider afterwards. But apart from a headline in The Washington Post suggesting that “Training is ‘first step’ in stopping sexual harassment in the House, lawmakers say,” there is little evidence so far that any other sentient human beings saw it. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was talking about Russia on the other C-SPAN at roughly the same time, so maybe no one did.

Your tax dollars at work.

She then proceeded to explain why putting up posters full of legalese written in tiny print is the surest way of making it absolutely clear to Rep. BlueBlazer McEntrepreneurship that he should not under any circumstances be showing his penis to members of his staff or his fellow representatives. Adults, especially those with college degrees, proud service in our nation’s Armed Forces, decades of experience getting things done in the private sector, and the other sorts of things that you generally find on the CVs of congressmen, learn these things from posters when they are 40 or 50 years old. Who would know otherwise?

Amazon Pins Blame on USPS for Grocery Delivery Mess, Says Report

15th November 2017

Read it.

Amazon is blaming the U.S. Postal Service for having to shut down its grocery delivery service in portions of the country, according to Recode.

USPS was responsible for delivering orders from the tech conglomerate’s eponymous service Amazon Fresh for a large majority of intended destinations, but allegedly failed to do so in a timely manner, or at all, in certain instances. Amazon cites this, as well as an overall imperfect relationship with USPS, as the primary reasoning behind its decision to limit its delivery feature, which included cutting it off in parts of nine states.

They expected the Postal Service to deliver stuff in a timely manner? Really? Really?

Socialism’s Obsession With Race

14th November 2017

Read it.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times last August, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors, stated that BLM would not sit at the table with President Trump, because he “is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country – be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia”.

Trump’s views and actions aside, calling capitalism evil and conflating it with racism is noteworthy. The same goes for the increasing tendency among racial justice advocates to embrace the left-wing economic agenda.

Pure Trump Derangement Syndrome.

On the other side of the Atlantic, Natalie Jeffers, who cofounded BLM in the United Kingdom, urged her followers to: “Fight racism with solidarity. Fight capitalism with socialism. We must organize – dedicate ourselves to revolutionary politic power.”

So it’s Just Another Left Wing Victim Group. *yawn*
