… I remember seeing pretty women on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue.
The Daily Mail reports a child sex abuse center at Johns Hopkins University has hired a trans professor, who was forced to resign from Virginia school for defending pedophiles as “minor attracted persons.” Allyn Walker will start work as a postdoctoral fellow for the school later this month at a center aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.

No government has the right to decide on the truth of scientific principles, nor to prescribe in any way the character of the questions investigated. Neither may a government determine the aesthetic value of artistic creations, nor limit the forms of literacy or artistic expression. Nor should it pronounce on the validity of economic, historic, religious, or philosophical doctrines. Instead it has a duty to its citizens to maintain the freedom, to let those citizens contribute to the further adventure and the development of the human race.
Как наука является разумом мира, так искусство — сердце его. Just as science is the intellect of the world, art is its soul.
Modern history is like a deaf person who is in the habit of answering questions that no one has put to him.
I don’t find it the least bit ironic during Women’s History Month that a man (Rachel Levine) has been named Woman of the Year by USA Today or that a man (Lia Thomas) has beaten a woman olympic medalist at an NCAA swim meet.
Irony stems from a disconnect between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result. We’re getting what we (allegedly) voted for. What should we expect when, for example, we allow cowardly men to bully women at sporting events?
This is disgusting but not ironic.
That was Harding’s successful campaign slogan in 1920. He was running in a country turned upside-down by the Wilson’s wartime proto-Fascist government. Wilson, who was no friend of the Constitution, had stuck the government’s nose into too many corners of American life, and the people pushed back against his overreach.
I’ve been writing about the overreach the Democrats have been engaging in since the 2020 election. They’ve sought to impose abnormality on the public, and the public is starting to push back. And the trigger seems to have been what is happening to kids while they are in school.
Forced cosmetic masking and coverups of crimes against students were issues that swayed the election in Virginia last year. Racist propaganda in the form of so-called Critical Race Theory, inappropriate sexual topics in kindergarten, and hidden efforts to promote and enable “gender” transitions have sent parent lobbying at state legislatures this year.
For the most part, it seems their pushback is winning. Several states have outlawed teaching racism. This week, Florida passed a ban on inappropriate class related to sexuality.
Of course, the media and the Democrats (BIRM) are howling, and it looks as if many of them are willing to go into this November’s elections without letting go of their overreach.
Meanwhile, the public is beginning to notice that inflation is at its highest in over 40 years, that the world is tending toward WW3, and that they can’t afford to buy $55k EVs. Things are about to get uglier.
… I remember when the dictionary definition of this word looked like this—
gay adj. \ˈgā\ 1. merry.
2. happy, joyful, and lively.
3. quick, fast.
4. festive, bright, or colorful.
Perhaps we should begin referring to those elite folks who want to change Spanish to fit their political whims as gringx.
Shortly after Joe Xiden took office, I suggested that we were in for a couple of years of overreach by the Left—and that they would wind up going a bridge too far. It looks as if schools have been the flash point for a rebellion by normal people.
The rest of 2022 will be … um … interesting.

It is no exaggeration to say that the central aim of socialism is to discredit those traditional morals which keep us alive.
Matt Margolis has a post over at PJ Media about the results of a Rasmussen survey that shows that 75% of Americans believe that there are only two genders. Well, if they’re French speakers, they’re correct. If they are English speakers, they are wrong.
In the English language there are four genders: masculine/he, feminine/she, neuter/it, and indefinite/he (informal)/one (formal). In English, gender follows biological sex for animate beings.
There are only two sexes, and sex is not the same thing as gender—not even in the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak Dictionary.

High school is closer to the core of the American experience than anything else I can think of.
Transgenderism is immoral because it is dishonest—a deception, an attempt to substitute make-believe for biological reality.

Too many of the wrong people have been caught up in the Afghanistan fiasco for The Media to quietly go along with the Xiden Administration’s attempts to edit the news. During the long war, reporters who spent time in Afghanistan made friends among the Afghan people. Other reporters have college friends or family members working with NGOs in the country. These personal connections to real people in real distress are The Media them to challenge Xiden’s spin.
Here are a couple of examples.
The Guardian has reported in a significant difference between the American and French governments’ version of the minutes of a phone call between Joe Xiden and French President Macron. A British newspaper is reporting on the French lecturing us on moral behavior.
The White House’s readout of a call between Joe Biden and Emmanuel Macron on the crisis in Afghanistan leaves out an impassioned plea from the French president that the US and its allies have a “moral responsibility” to evacuate Afghan allies.
ABC has now published the entire transcript of the Xiden interview conducted by George Stephanopoulos, including about 1,000 words that were edited from the broadcast version. The full version simply makes Xiden look even less prepared to handle the crisis.
People who haven’t been to Room 101 yet tend to be supportive of friends and family, even over the demands of the Inner Party.
Ahh. You seek meaning. Then listen to the music, not the song.
