Was the 2020 loss

a blessing in disguise?

It certainly unmasked a TON of people, from national RINOs to your local friend that you didn’t know was such a rigid Lefty nutcase.

But it is true that a tie that was ultimately decided by House members would not have been at all ideal.

But I think that in a free and fair election Trump would have won outright. It never would have gotten to the House.

It’s a decent article, though I think the author does indeed make a few egregious errors of basic logic. For example, inflation simply wouldn’t be the monster it now is if Trump were enacting policy–it is Biden and the Democrats’ explosive diarrhea deficit spending that engendered that (though I acknowledge that Trump was a bigger spender than I prefer).

The energy industry would have been fine. Gas would have been $1.90 a gallon not $5-plus. Boy, THAT alone would make a huge difference! Everything would have been cheaper, since trucking costs would not have skyrocketed! Therefore, no inflation crisis…

I think this guy takes the worst-case scenario of Trump’s imaginary actions. He talks about how bad it would’ve been for Trump if Russia had invaded Ukraine on his watch. But Biden was hosing things up well before the Ukraine thing.

But the reality is that Russia may very well have NOT invaded Ukraine at all if Trump had been President. A TON of problems, both foreign and domestic, would almost for sure not have even happened at all under Trump!

So we can’t take the counter-factual just 1 foot when the story goes on for miles… And it would have been a far different story than what we are seeing now.

I personally think that probably the biggest thing was the unmasking of the Left and the malignant (soi-disant) “middle.” Both on the national and the personal level. There really are now fewer illusions, and now we better know who and what people actually are than we did before.

Current Events Pandemic Panic Porn Pimps

As a student of

human beings, I really DO think the masks mandates are over. People are walking around, going out to dinner, going to school, going to church, and flying on airplanes, all without masks.

Can you imagine how people would react if these useless restrictions were again forced on the public? And the mRNA shots have been a colossal failure (and risk). If the Left tried to turn the clock back, it would NOT be pretty.

That dog just won’t never hunt unless there is clear and incontrovertible EVIDENCE that masks and such will help. And when people have been snookered once, they tend to be a bit more skeptical the next time…

The Left cried “wolf!” for fun and profit–they even stole a Presidential election with it. I just don’t think people now will be eager to comply once again without overwhelming hard evidence. The last train to Chumpville departed a few months ago…

The Left has shot its wad. And there is (thankfully) now no going back, no matter how much nostalgia the Left has for 2020 and 2021!

Huh. Yeah,

maybe. But it’s less of a sure thing, IMHO. Maybe…

You see, Elon Musk would be good for Twitter, making it a better, more wholesome place. But set against that is the obvious reality that Twitter has been terrible for the left and its institutions.

Yeah,

no one wants to go back! And wise employers make tele-work possible.

Only about one in five knowledge workers say they want to work in the office full-time, yet 35% are making the five-day-a-week commute, compared to 19% of executives.

… “This effect could be most pronounced among women, people of color, and working parents (especially working mothers), who continue to report the greatest interest in flexible schedules and working locations,” the research pointed out. Employees who say that their employer is not being “transparent about their future of work plans” are nearly four times as likely to say that they will “definitely” seek a new job in the next year.

I was at home working and had computer problems. The IT guy “modemed” in to my computer, fixed it, and we were done. Glorious! It took maybe 10 minutes start to finish. I guarantee you that is was probably 10 times faster than if I had been at the office.

Sure, it’s not possible for surgeons and patient care. THOUGH, at the height of the “pandemic” I had an appointment with my neurologist AND then with my primary care provider. Both were routine follow-up appointments, and both were done via tele-medicine.

And I loved it! As a disabled person, driving to the Dr.’s office and getting my electric scooter out of the car is a total pain in the butt. And it is at least an hour each way for one of the visits (though it IS nearly 45 minutes for the other once you count getting the scooter out). It was luxury for me to sit in my home office and do the routine visit–and then get back to my work.

It’s not always possible or advisable. But when it is…

So it is really no shocker at all that many workers want to continue with tele-work. I certainly don’t blame them.

Sure, if I am a roofer or a mechanic or surgeon or dentist, tele-work is not a great option. But if I am an accountant? If my job is to maintain inventory? If I am a consultant?

And don’t kid yourself–the political climate shifts considerably when you are home all day and NOT influenced so much by break-room chatter and you see your kids all the time!

You might even be able to do homeschooling! And given the crap that is our public schools, you might decide to try it. Besides, you already did it when the schools shut down–there’s no longer any question that you can, and mostly homeschooling is significantly better than public schools, anyway. And if your work is even a little flexible it’s no problem.

You really see and feel what is important.

Leftists hardest hit…

Yes, Leftists are getting hoisted on their own petard, here.

Yes, but I agree

that it’s VERY important for Conservatives not to get over-confident.

Because the Left will cheat. As sure as the sun rises in the east…

The time to put in safeguards is now. The time to be watchful and attentive is now.

IF you are a Conservative that wants to help, get involved NOW. Help do the nitty-gritty of elections. Focus on the local. Donate if you can. Speak up, both formally and informally. Now is NOT the time to sit on your hands!

The record retraced here encourages caution and humility about expectations developed six or seven months ahead of national elections. Such intervals can be simply too wide for accuracy.

Oh yes,

she is awful!

I mean, there really isn’t much question about THAT. You know, Kamala is awful, water is wet, and ice is cold. Not news…

Frankly, things really don’t look good for Kamala if Biden decides not to run for reelection. As we saw in 2020, she’s a lousy campaigner, and as we’ve seen since January 20, 2021, she’s an awful vice president—in fact, she’s so awful that she’s not even well-liked in her home state anymore.

She is a strange concoction of incompetence, ass-hattery, and evil.

Sorry for the login. But the title says it all!

Attributed to

Samuel Johnson:

Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.

This is a warning to wokesters!

It thus looks pretty likely that with accumulated postjudgment interest, Oberlin will have to fork over in excess of $34 million to the Gibson family. This is on top of the millions Oberlin has spent on attorneys fees, and millions more that the negative publicity has and will likely cost Oberlin. The eight-figure disaster should serve as a timely object lesson to universities and administrators: surrendering to wokeism and cancel culture (in Oberlin’s case, embracing and participating in it) can have very real, very expensive repercussions.

Administrators would be wise, indeed, to heed this warning. Focus on EDUCATION, not wokeism!

And for students, suing the school is a great way to pay for your education!
