Rest of the DNC Open Thread

26 07 2016


While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968.  Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.

My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.

Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school.  These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection.  Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD.  They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them.  They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.

No Walls, Except When There Are

Like I’ve been saying, the borderless world still has borders.

“Unduly Burdensome and Not Necessary”

Yeah, so? You think Jesse and Al care about that?

It’s also unduly burdensome and not necessary to fire departments, yet many Federal judges could care less.

If AAPL is going to give lots of money to Democrats and its employees are going to vote heavily Democrat, then it should have to do what it implicitly expects everyone else to do.  Or did you think that all your money would buy you a permanent escape hatch?

Do As I Say

Mark Zuckerberg wants no borders and mass immigration for the whole country.

Mark Zuckerberg protects his own house with fences and walls, quite stridently, and he’s not about to use cheap labor Hispanic women to help with his own children.

He Should Have Said He’s a Syrian

In search of a better life, fences don’t work, it’s not who we are, skills gap, remember the M.S. St. Louis.

Really, I’m in no mood to give the aspie nutbar any more publicity than he already has, so this is why I did not put a hyperlink in the image.

But I will quote from it:

The Secret Service added a second layer of steel spikes to the top of the fence in May following to a series of security breaches.

Have they no humanity?  Think of the children and the economy!

David Brooks’s Excellent Adventure

14 11 2015

New York

David Brooks experiences how those on the wrong side of the tracks within the one percent universe make holiday.

Does seem like a pretty nice environment.  Especially since that Brooks himself has told us recently that a responsible version of Donald Trump would be doing whatever Chetty Chetty Bang Bang wants.  And since he’s all about moving ghetto blacks to better environments to help their income mobility, I’m just sitting here wondering why Brooks didn’t take a few Brooklyn or Bronx black ghetto kids with him on that round the world cruise.  It would have been a much better environment for them than where they live, and surely it would have helped them earn bigger incomes in FY 2040 than they will because they didn’t get to go.
