Myopic Diversity



Bestselling Author Fired For Mocking Publisher’s Diversity Policy

FTA: Publishing giant Penguin Random House has announced that its authors are no longer to be chosen on literary merit but according to a politically correct quota system “taking into account ethnicity, gender, sexuality, social mobility and disability”.

Yes, you read it correctly, no longer will new books be chosen on literary merit. No writing skills required, just diversity.

Author Lionel Shriver (pictured above) was fired as a literary judge because she brought up the farcicality of this position.

Gird your loins, people, because that kind of foolishness will be ramping up here in the U.S.A.

Banned Keychains



I was surprised to read this:

Popular Self-defense Keychains Could Land You In Jail

A case if nanny state or wise legislation?

I quickly emailed the article to my youngest daughter.

Bag Designer



I never heard of this woman until today.

Kate Spade, Whose Handbags Carried Women Into Adulthood, Is Dead At 55

If you listen to the press, Kate Spade designed handbags for a generation of women.

We all carried her bags, didn't we?

Um, I didn't. Did you?

All I know is that she had more money than God, yet she chose to end her life at age 55, leaving behind a 13 year old daughter.

And I'm the stupid one?

The Amazing Salp



A Fisherman Caught This Bizarre Creature In New Zealand, You Should See What It Turned Out To Be.

A salp (Salpa fusiformis) is a planktonic tunicate that travels through the ocean by funnelling water through its clear body.

Wow.

No secrets in this little guy's life.

No Joy Here



MSNBC Stands By Joy Reid After New Apology For Controversial Blog Posts

Joy Reid just keeps stepping into the big poop pile, but her employers just keep on keepin' on saving her butt from losing her job. Sometimes it pays to be a minority.

Nix Netflix



Netflix Exec: Productions From The Obamas Will Not Have A ‘Political Slant’"

Of course not and that's why my cancellation of Netflix this last weekend should not be seen in any way as a political stance against Netflix's lib/prog programming.

My New Little Frog Friend



Thanks to Subtropical Storm Alberto (when did we start naming sub-storms?), there's been frog/toad-song in the air in my back yard.

Anyway, we've had sporadic rain over the long weekend and I spotted a large toad. He evaded capture, but he looked very much like this previous tenant.

Gosh, it may be his grandfather.

Either the toadies are getting faster or I'm getting slower ;)

Unmaskings By Clarice



From "Dilbert," creator Scott Adams:

Four things to understand about SPYGATE:
1) There was no spy in the Trump campaign.
2) The spying that did NOT happen was totally justified.
3) It would be bad for national security to identify the spy who doesn't exist.
4) His name is Stefan.


But this article by Clarice Feldman is about more than that...

The Great Unmasking

Feldman writes, "I'm talking about a different series of unmaskings: Heroes and Knaves, Allies and Foes, Pundits and Nincompoops, Friends and Enemies of Israel, all unmasked by the genius of President Trump."

The article includes a salute for retiring NSA director, Admiral Mike Rogers, the hero who blew the whistle on the intelligence shenanigans. We would never have known of the spying and FISA violations without him.

Clarice's Pieces never fail to impress.

Remember And Honor



The freedoms we enjoy wouldn’t be possible without the sacrifice of America's heroes.

We remember and honor them today.

Spygate: The Prequel



A stroll down memory lane when in 1964 then-President Lyndon Baines Johnson [D] used the FBI and the CIA to spy on his political opponent, then-Senator Barry Goldwater [R].

I Spy: The Media And President Lyndon Baines....Obama?

What do ex-presidents LBJ and 0bama have in common?

Jug ears, yes, but more importantly they're both democrats who received lots of protection from a servile press.

2018 Newsflash: the liberal media isn't the only media in town anymore.

Fake Snake

Remember when Rachel Dolezal was fired from her job as leader of the NAACP when it was discovered that she was just pretending to be black:



Donezal, now legally known as Nkechi Diallo, is being accused of welfare fraud:



Race-faker Rachel Dolezal 'Illegally Received More Than $8,000 In Food Assistance And $100 For Child Care Despite Depositing Nearly $84,000 Into Her Bank Account After She Released Her Autobiography'

I was shocked, shocked I tell you, that a lying snake in the grass was caught lying again.[end sarcasm]

Last Train To Loserville



Judge Praises 30-year-old Son's Legal Research, Boots Him From Parents' House Anyway

[Cut to the 2:36 minute mark on video to see the narcissistic attention to his hair while speaking to the press after court]

The parents of this 30-year-old moocher had to go to the New York Supreme Court to have him evicted from their home. Michael Rotondo didn't pay rent or help out and his parents even offered him money to leave, but he refused.

I find this situation absurd on so many levels, yet there are people who defend this shiftless azzhat's position.

I would say a pox on both their ... er, sides. These obsequious parents are only now realizing the depth of indolence of their slacker son who, by the way, has a child of his own that he doesn't support.

I'm curious to hear what you think of this case. Please opine.
