"Gun control is the idea that it's better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

Stamp Out Degreeism
(The Feature Article)

John Locke: Love of Truth Necessary
John Locke: Love of Truth Necessary

There needs to be a new civil rights movement
of those who have allowed themselves to be
educated by life, but who have been unjustly
barred by inferior intellects from rewarding
themselves for their efforts.


The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama
by Terence James Mason
In 7 parts.

Stamp Out Degreeism
by L. Neil Smith
One of the many interesting facts I learned by reading the splendid Judge Dee murder mysteries by Robert van Gulik, is that, in classical Tang Dynasty China, the authorities serving the Emperor didn’t have a clue how to test candidates for various qualities they regarded as desirable in government office-holders. But they had to test for something, or else what’s bureaucracy for? And so the qualifying tests that young men studied their hearts out for were on literature and poetry. You can’t rely on a magistrate, they believed, unless he can toss off a suitable sonnet or two.

I only have a few things to say about a variety of different issues, but I only have enough to fit a paragraph or two on each issue. So if it seems like I am all over the place on this article, I apologize ahead of time.

Blonde, Cheerful and Dangerous: The Devil Theory of White Guilt
by Jeff Fullerton
An article from Breitbart referring to a prominent German family publication says it all: “Parenting Magazine Warns ‘Blond, Cheerful’ Families Dangerous, Likely Right Wing”, by Virginia Hale

Further Thoughs on Theresa May
by Sean Gabb
I delivered my interim report on Theresa May at the weekend. On Wednesday, I watched her main speech to the Conservative Party Conference. It was a very accomplished speech, perhaps the most accomplished speech of its kind since James Callaghan delivered his sermon on economic reality to the Labour Party Conference in 1976. I also noted one quotation from Vergil (“Parcere subiectis et debellare superbos”), and another from Horace (Carpe diem). Mrs May is no Demosthenes or Burke, but she appears to have good taste in speechwriters. Beyond that, I had nothing to add to what I had already said. However, I have just seen this from the Guido Fawkes blog:.…

Our Mr. Smith has a new novel out, Blade of p”Na You can get it right now Amazon.com:
Blade of p'Na cover

Putting this ish together got a late start since my computer wanted to spend an hour downloading and installing Windows 11—except it was called “Windows 10 Feature Update” for some reason. Sometimes I think Microsoft thinks its customers are a bunch of fucking idiots. (They may be on to something.)

Of course, there is a lot of that going around these days. The Democraticish party thinks Americans are a bunch of fucking idiots. The Republicish party thinks Americans are a bunch of fucking idiots. The Libertarianish party thinks Americans are a bunch of fucking idiots. In fact, it looks like everybody thinks Americans are a bunch of fucking idiots.

Even the Government in Washington thinks so, see: “Washington’s governing elites think we’re all morons, a new study says” by Alex Thompson.

What can I say. I'm an American, and while there do seem to be a lot of fucking idiots around, there are also a lot of non-idiots.

And it looks like those non-idiots are mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore. There are rumblings of a "Big Fork" in which the Socialist/Fascist/Communist People Who Think They Own And Run The World are going to be ignored, shut-out, and left to their own company.

There is a beta going of a Twitter replacement. Twitter has been censoring, disconnecting, and suppressing people with political opinions they dislike. And in comes Gab (https://gab.ai/).

And we've all had experience of Wikipedia going only with the Marxist/Socialist/Communist/Fascist point-of-view for anything controversial. And so in comes Infogalactic (https://infogalactic.com/) which is a copy of Wikipedia that is going to be re-edited to be objective and to clearly distinguish between fact and opinion.

In fact, you can go look at the Infogalactic page on Gab: https://infogalactic.com/info/Gab_(company)

In the world of web browsers, there is Brave (https://infogalactic.com/info/Brave_(web_browser)) which is also beta, but seems to be in a condition to work okay most of the time. It is done by people obsessed with security and privacy.

I'm sure there is a Facebook replacement in the works. One thing for sure is that most people know the Socialist/Fascist/Communist assholes are at the end of their run. About time. (Although there may be a Civil War or three before they are all put in their place, which place is not running things.)

And, we were speaking about fucking idiots weren't we:

Feminist PhD Candidate: Science Is Sexist Because It’s Not Subjective
by Joy Pullmann
Women and minorities cannot understand logic or objective truths, says a graduate student in her dissertation, so science classes should stop using the scientific method.

College science classes are hostile to women and minorities because they use the scientific method, which assumes people can find reliable truths about the natural world through careful and sustained experimentation, concludes a recent dissertation by a doctoral candidate at the University of North Dakota.

Laura Parson, a student in the university’s education department, reviewed eight science class syllabi at a “Midwest public university” and said she discovered in them a hidden hostility to women and minorities....

...Even though the course syllabi contained no “gendered assumptions” about students or other overtly discriminatory implications, Parson writes, they display prejudice against women and minorities because they refuse to entertain the possibility that “scientific knowledge is subjective.”

Mr. Heinlein was right, these are The Crazy Years.

Finally, this ish has a splendid article by Mr. Jeff Fullerton which makes me want to climb up onto the roof of my house and cry out in a loud voice "Who will rid me of these troublesome social justice creeps?!?" Oh…, right, it’s being worked on!
