March 2019 Shows
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 – $ailing Into College
A mere twenty-four hours ago I had no clue – none – as to the question: “Who are Felicity Huffman or Lori Laughlin? I still don’t know anything about them, other than they are actresses (people who pretend to be other people) and both in big trouble for cheating to get their kids into “elite” colleges.
Tuesday, March 12, 2019 – The Infusion of Myth
The problem with myths is that we believe them more than we believe the truth. Like Daylight Savings Time, which many, many people on my Social Media hate, there is the myth that we don’t need to do this and there is the truth that the reasons for doing it made sense originally and still do. Unless you just hate it and buy into the myth that “only the government would think that cutting a foot off the top of a blanket (whatever that is) and sewing it to the bottom and having a longer blanket” myth.
If you don’t, then you already know that there are certain advantages of Daylight Savings Time, which have changed over the century that we’ve been doing it.
Monday, March 11, 2019 – 1850 or 2019?
I got a message from a friend who wants to break up California because it is “too liberal” for his tastes. The problem is, of course, that solution will not result in one “Liberal California and one “Conservative” California, but in two Blue California’s. The dynamics should be apparent, but in case they are not, it a matter of relativity. What is “conservative” in the Central Valley of California is considered “liberal” in the heartland of Texas. Admitting a new State at this point in our political journey would become an exercise in balancing the power of two political forces which are more allied than divided and yet like to draw lines of distinction. Any new State that changes that balance is going to face a quick death in the operational details of Article IV.
We’ve been here before, as a Nation.
Friday, March 8, 2019 – The President & The Constitution 1 – The Worst (James Buchanan)
James Buchanan interferes with the Supreme Courts worst decision of all time, the Dred Scott Case, with predictable and long-lasting effects…
Thursday, March 7, 2019 – CT – The 1st Pillar of Liberty
A Maryland high school student (actually her Dad) says that a Social Studies course lesson on Islam violated her 1st Amendment rights by establishing a religion and denigrating her faith.
Wednesday, Mar 6, 2019 – The Devil Is a Good Communist
Reminding ourselves that Joseph Stalin was a very, very, very bad person…
Monday, March 4, 2019 – Another Application of Dave’s 3rd Law
Turns out we’re really mad. Well… not really, but the people who make a lot – a lot – of money of fake anger are doing everything they can to make sure that you pretend to stay angry. Even if you don’t know why.
Friday, March 1, 2019 – CT – Double Trouble
When a fellow named Gamble, who was a convicted felon, was pulled over for a bad headlight, nobody was thinking to themselves, “Hey, would this have any effect on the Paul Manafort case?” Now they are, but the general feeling is that it won’t have any effect. Why not? Because no matter how hard you try, English Common Law prior to 1868 is not US Law after 1868.
