Sanity is overrated

As you probably know already, Tucker Carlson has been targeted for removal by George Soros’ minions. I guess they tried to hold another protest outside Tucker’s home. This one wasn’t scary like the first one, this one was pathetic. They came dressed as bananas.

Bananas. They’re dressing up like bananas, because they’re desperate to get attention. Conclusion? Media Matters isn’t getting the numbers. Nobody, not even average lefties, want to waste time doing protests of a conservative television host when the easier solution is to simply flip the channel.

That’s embarrassing.

What’s happening in the wake of that is that all they are attracting now are crazies, people with a thing for dressing up in banana suits, to do the protests to keep the heat on Carlson. Look how sparse their numbers are, and how wacked out these people seem to be. That’s what the big Media Matters protest campaign is being reduced to.

November 2020 is still a lot of zombies from here. Conserve ammo.

Meanwhile, the son of the former Merced District Attorney was killed in a drive-by this weekend. The father was recently defeated for reelection. A few years ago the son was charged with murder for a drive-by killing. He was exonerated. Then he sued the county and won $500,000. Now he’s dead.

This is an open thread.

    Ann Althouse has changed her commenting policy so all of her comments will be moderated, and she’s only going to post the ones she decides are worthy. She thinks this will improve her blog. Since most of her posts are only links to articles that are behind paywalls at sites I don’t want to contribute to, I only go to her blog for the comments. I’m going to miss some of her followers, and I hope they show up other places. I know if I invited some of them here, it wouldn’t be a comment that would make it through. I guess she’s the kind of teacher who can’t live without her red pen now that she’s retired. I seldom comment there, but I’m not willing to play “please the teacher” when I do. I took her out of my morning rotation. She won’t miss me.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I only went for the comments as well. Will miss I am Laslo.😤

      • Island Girl says:

        Laslo is classic! I too mostly read for the super funny and intelligent commenters. Pretty much what her readers said too as I spent way too much time there last night. She does have some loons. I will still read.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Commented about an hour ago that i visited for the comments and would miss them. Seems that didn’t pass moderation muster. Shame there were some very smart conservative posters.

    • tpcelt says:

      I don’t always agree (but generally do) with Althouse. I think she is a consistently unique and independent advocate platform for differing opinions. She makes clear that she wants thoughtful, non-fluff comments that respond to the content of her posts…analysis and facts, not party talking points. She tries to live up to her motto of ‘cruel neutrality’. I often wonder about, and seek out, her take on current issues.

      Her current approach toward comments is not new. Over the years, she has actually shut down comments altogether when they became to overly hostile to her and Meade or a mish-mash of personal, and to her boring, retorts among commenters about themselves and not the topic at hand. When she thinks a different approach can work better (including reversing her shut down of comments), she has experimented with that.

      If our MSM were as cruelly neutral as Althouse seeks (and often succeeds) to be, our political discourse would be far more constructive.

      Good points, plus maintenance requires more energy especially cleaning them or they won’t spinny spin.

    • DandyTIger says:

      You think that’s bad. Wait until you see the worst pollution based development: solar panels. Heavy metals, horrible chemicals, etc. And best part, panels only last 10-15 years and have to be replaced. So start over, more pollution, etc. Also similar issues as wind for other materials of metal, glass, etc. And finally, storage technology for any of these is even more polluting. Solution: Gen IV Nuclear Fission. And then in the future, fusion, the ultimate clean energy solution.

      • DandyTIger says:

        If nuclear isn’t part of their conversation, then it’s only about politics and power.

        Solyndra went bankrupt with a half billion of our money without producing a single panel. They were super donors to Obama. Wonder what his cut was? 😉

      • John Denney says:

        Solar panels are evil, being deliberately designed to absorb as much energy as possible from the sun, thus contributing to global warming. Instead of panels that absorb the sun’s energy, we should be putting up mirrors to reflect the sun’s energy away, so as to cool the planet.
        If you really believe in global warming, that is.

    Colorado governor signs law that gives state’s electoral votes to national popular vote winner

    • DandyTIger says:

      If that’s the game, then fine, you do campaigns for the popular vote instead. Trump could win the popular vote if that’s how it works. Then blue states would vote for him. Extra funny. But when it’s in-between where some states do that and others don’t, then it might be hard.

    • 1539days says:

      None of that happens until enough states sign on to the Electoral Vote Compact. That will never happen because none of the red states or states with split legislatures will sign on to it. They’re 90 Electoral votes short, even with Colorado.

      I don’t get out much, but when did nationalism get the white moniker? I’ve certainly heard of white supremacist, but until lately I don’t recall it being conflated with patriotism (nationalism). I do recall Bruno labeling a lot of conservative groups and the SPLC has been doing it even longer, but it seems like the Overton Window has been moved even more.

      This is a very good interview. I’m glad I watched. The Covington Catholic Kids are in good hands, and Tucker Carlson should probably hire him. The ad leading into the interview is for an online class at Hillsdale College being taught by Victor Davis Hanson. It’s on World War I. You can follow along for free, but if you want to take the quizzes, participate in the class discussions, and get a certificate of completion, it costs $75. This is how people in the future will get educated. We just have to stop equating being educated with being credentialed.

          I keep looking for things that will keep Elliesdad’s mind engaged. He’s not losing his ability to remember, think, or reason. He justs finds it easier to sleep. So I bought him a year’s subscription to “The Great Courses Plus”. On his own he chooses courses in physics and chemistry. Together we watch history. After our fun this week with tracking my family history back to the Revolutionary War, we’ve been watching the genealogy course while we have lunch. No homework, no tests, no grades. My favorites so far have been the one about famous legal trials and the one about the history of forensics. Benjamin Franklin was fun, too. I’ve watched some of the life science classes with our grandson. I’d place the difficulty level of the courses at freshman and sophomore in college level, but since there are no tests or grades, you get out of the course what you’re ready for. Our grandson has decided he’s ready to go to college now. (He’s 12.)

      I was wondering if your daughter might know anyone in the Manhattan west side that has a room to rent? My daughter is doing the travelling nurse thing and is looking for a short term arrangement near the A or C train. She only needs it 3 nights a week, but her schedule varies. I believe her contract runs through May, although she might extend it. Thanks.

      • DeniseVB says:

        For 3 nights a week and a variable schedule sounds like a hotel might work better for her? She can reserve a room as needed. Anthony may know someone or someplace? One of my favorite hotels is The Belvedere on W.48th with kitchenettes and a block from the ACE line on 8th Ave. I bet they’d work with her. It’s a very safe neighborhood location with very reasonable rates.

        • dm says:

          Thanks. She has used rooms for rent (then she got transferred to different location), Airbnb’s, and hotels. I told her yesterday she seems to be living a nomadic lifestyle. I never know where she is exactly (drives the mom in me crazy). I will pass along the tip.

          Any other New Yorkers that might have some wisdom to pass along, I’d appreciate it.

            I wasn’t much help, dd’s in Queens now working in Long Island City. She’s still nomadic in that if she’s between jobs, apts, rehab, sober house or homelessness she always finds a couch to sleep on.

    Ted Koppel: Trump’s ‘Not Mistaken’ That Liberal Media Are Blatantly ‘Out to Get Him’

    Wow! This somehow slipped beneath the radar but it is highly significant considering who said it. In fact if you read just what the person said, you might even think that most of it was spoken by someone at NewsBusters. However, what is significant, is the words were uttered by former ABC News star Ted Koppel on March 7 during a discussion with Marvin Kalb at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/18/white-house-pitches-cap-on-plus-student-loans/

    this is not a bad idea. correct me if I am wrong, but from what I can see federal college loans did not really do much to help students. The colleges raised their costs to get more money , the students are in debt for a lot of their working lifetimes. And in today’s colleges they are getting indoctrinated not educated.

    • elliesmom says:

      If someone ever makes me queen, I would turn all high schools into vocational/technical schools so all kids graduate with the prerequisites to go to college and a marketable skill. Then kids would be able make a living wage either while they’re going to college or instead. Colleges would have to compete for students again instead of having 50 applicants for every seat. The quality and value of a college education would go up and the cost would go down. If colleges are still so expensive students need big loans, then colleges should be required to assume some of the risk in lending the money. But I’m only a peasant.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I think student loans should be evaluated like more traditional loans. A nursing degree will likely lead to direct employment and a stable income. Gender studies not so much.
        The young woman during OWS who claimed almost 200,000 in loans getting an MSW? That’s insane. Entry level is 38,000.
        And I agree about the schools sharing the burden.

        • lateblum says:

          I couldn’t have drummed up a loan for $300K getting my MSW had I attended Univ of Chicago. (where I had also accepted) WTH did she go to school? And where did she think she’d be working after graduation that she would take on this size loan?

          • Mothy67 says:

            Who knows what is true from an SJW. I think she claimed the New School or maybe it was NYU. I don’t think a state school would have provided a lesser education.
            The free tuition mob also doesn’t seem to grasp that were it that tuition was free it would apply to public school s and not include room and board. They are degreed but dumb as posts.

          • lateblum says:

            Indeed they are. ❤

          • Jadzia says:

            I totally dodged a bullet when I decided not to apply to the UC MSW program. My friends are probably still paying their loans, if they’re not in default.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Queen Em I bow to you. How about just ending high school at 10th grade? Grades 11 and 12 will be votech or AP/ college courses. As a taxpayer, I’d have no problem paying for it knowing we’re releasing 18 year olds prepared for something. 🙂

        • elliesmom says:

          Most states (I want to say all, but I’m too lazy today to check) administer their graduation requirement standardized test at the end of 10th grade. They do it then to give the kids who fail some time to do remedial work so they can pass the test and get a diploma. Movement forward for those kids pretty much stops until they get a passing score. I think a 3-track plan could work quite well as long as the voc/tech kids still have what we consider the basics needed to succeed in higher ed.

          A lot of kids decide college isn’t for them, but ten years later they want to get their degree. It’s demoralizing to have to go back and take high school math at 30 before you can start. Taking a refresher is different than having to start from never having seen it. I went back to school in my 40s to get my teaching certificate. Pre-calculus is a required course for science teachers, I had 26 credits of college level calculus, but my adviser didn’t recognize course names like “Partial Differential Equations” or “Methematical Methods for Physicists” as being calculus so she made me take an exam to pass out of the course. It was painful watching some of the adult ed students in complete panic because they needed to take an algebra test to get into a history degree program.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I’m sure I’ve shared this before, the grandtwins’ school has pathway programs, they chose health which includes being certified EMTs at graduation.
