New info about Christine Blasey Ford

Interview with the authors of a new book about the Kavanaugh hearings. They claim that Ford was described by a Facebook friend as a “crazy liberal,” and that in high school she was a “heavy drinker” and “very aggressive with boys.”

So a “crazy liberal” would be motivated to make up a story in order to stop Trump. A girl who was a “heavy drinker” and “very aggressive with boys” sounds like someone who would voluntarily participate in the kind of activity she alleges was non-consensual, if it even happened.

For strange unknown reasons, Google is sending a lot of traffic to the post, resulting in a lot of comments from non-readers of the blog.

Stuck in a dark apartment

There’s no power. It’s way too high up to think about walking down the stairs. The downside of Manhattan living.

11:25 update: according to an FM radio station, power is supposed to be restored by midnight. I can see the lights on to the north and south, but I’m still in the dark. Watching the Han Solo movie. So far, it’s way better than the crappy previous movie.

11:40 Power back on! Writing this from my desktop computer. Yahoo.

You never hear about the Silent Generation

You hear all the time about the Baby Boomer generation (those born after the end of World War II), and you sometimes about the Greatest Generation (those old enough to have served in the army in World War II if male) even though the vast majority of that generation is now dead, but you rarely hear about the Silent Generation sandwiched in between those two generations.

I mentioned the Silent Generation in a comment. I think it was the last generation when women weren’t expected to graduate from college unless they were from an upper-class family.

* * *

We have never even had a member of the Silent Generation serve as President. We skipped from Kennedy-Johnson-Nixon-Ford-Carter-Reagan-Bush (Greatest Generation) to Clinton-Bush-Obama-Trump (Baby Boomers).

That will change if Joe Biden (Silent Generation) becomes the next President. Which seems less likely than it did a few weeks ago.

* * *

And for those curious about the generations of previous presidents:

Eisenhower, Truman: Lost Generation
Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt: Missionary Generation
Wilson: Progressive Generation

I smell BO in NJ

Bad odor while walking in the tunnel under the tracks at Metropark. I look around, and sure enough, I see two Indian guys.

Hispanics to become non-minority?

Peter from Long Island, who normally posts off-topic comments about girls shooting guns, writes the following:

This may be a very controversial thing to say, but based on my dealings with people, especially while working at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, it’s my very tentative impression that Hispanics are *not* permanently destined to be minorities and barred from assimilating into the white population. Ones who speak unaccented English and appear to accept mainstream culture just don’t give off a “minority” aura even if they look a bit different from ordinary white people. You more or less stop thinking of them as minorities at all. This is different than with blacks, who regardless of culture and physical appearance do not cease being obvious minorities.

I totally agree with this. My experience working at a corporation is the same. Most of the white collar Hispanics at my company speak perfect unaccented American English (such that you couldn’t detect their race if you only knew them from the telephone) and don’t have any chip on their shoulder about being a minority. I would say the opposite about most blacks. Plus blacks are disproportionately likely to be annoying to work with or incompetent. (Not ALL blacks, but a disproportionate share compared to Hispanics or whites.)

Game of Thrones, S08E03

Of course there are spoilers, but I don’t think that knowing the ending makes the episode that much worse, but if you haven’t watched it yet, then read ahead at your own risk.

Is the seder appropriate for today’s children?

The purpose of the seder is to tell your children the story of Exodus, but is this brutal story something that today’s children should be learning?

It began because a bunch of Jews showed up as refugees in Egypt. A globalist, more liberal, Pharaoh took them in. And the Jew proceeded to multiply in number much faster than the native population, without ever assimilating.

Then a more illiberal and Egyptian-supremacist Pharaoh took over. In order to control these foreigners living amongst the Egyptians, foreigners who refused to accept the truth of the Egyptian religions, this Pharaoh enslaved the Hebrew foreigners, and after they continued to breed like rats even when enslaved, attempted to control their population by ordering that all male children be killed.

It should be pointed out that, while killing infants seems icky to us modern people, it was a lot more common and no big deal back then. No bigger a deal back then than abortion is a big deal today. (According to Wikipedia, describing the practice in ancient Greece: “After a woman had a baby, she would show it to her husband. If the husband accepted it, it would live, but if he refused it, it would die. Babies would often be rejected if they were illegitimate, unhealthy or deformed, the wrong sex, or too great a burden on the family.”) The real sin of the Egyptians is not that they were slavers or baby-killers, their real sin is that they worshiped false gods.

Yahweh’s ultimate solution to this problem was not Egyptians and Hebrews living peacefully together in a Democratic society. No, the solution was complete separation of the two peoples, with the Jews eventually conquering the land of Israel and setting up there (and too darn bad for any non-Jews who happened to be living there).

The lesson of the Book of Exodus is that different nationalities with different religions can’t live peacefully together in the same country. Each nationality should have their own country.

Comment about Christian types

It’s my impression that Christian types seem just a little bit desperate to prove to seculars that they are morally good people. As the mainstream secular media redefines what’s morally good, the Christian types change to please them. The only thing they won’t compromise on is abortion. But on issues like race, immigration, climate change, even gays, they will totally cuck to the fakestream media.

All the MSM does is look for racism everywhere

https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/education/ny-n-word-attack-rocks-manhattan-high-school-20190326-gmrm3ljhjzezbddztauye3tit4-story.html

The girls shouldn’t have done that, but the fact that this story got into the newspaper demonstrates the mainstream media bias. There are never any news stories about the every-day horror if being a white minority at a mostly black high school. But this one-time incident is trumpeted as an example of the massive racism that’s holding back blacks. And a few days later, there will be a story about how we “need” to get more blacks into majority-white schools. But why do we “need” do to that if majority-white schools are full of racism?

Supreme Court supports Trump on immigration (again)

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-administration-notches-victory-in-immigration-battle-with-supreme-court-ruling

It was a 5-4 decision. This is a reminder that if only a single Supreme Court Justice switched from conservative to liberal, we’d have Supreme Court mandated open borders. Which would have been the case if Hillary Clinton became President instead of Trump.

And by the way, our immigration laws are totally screwed up if government can’t just immediately deport an illegal alien as soon as he is let out of prison, and instead another time-consuming legal process is required.
