Competence Culture

She absolutely

killed it! I had never really considered her as a candidate, but I was wrong not to.

My response? We aren’t the aggressors in this [the culture war]. We are on defense. We aren’t demanding the overturning of Western culture, the Left is. The Left is pushing male crotches in the faces of kids, encouraging them to visit Grindr, and demanding they be sterilized and mutilated out of “compassion.”

Competence Fighting Back

Well, you know,

that’s true.

It’s time to get serious!

THIS is a big reason to get rid of that barnacle and “post turtle” Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel!

Post turtle:

An old Rancher is talking about politics with a young man from the city. He compares a politician to a “post turtle.” The young man doesn’t understand and asks him what a post turtle is.

The old man says, “When you’re driving down a country road and you see a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle. You know he didn’t get up there by himself. He doesn’t belong there; you wonder who put him there; he can’t get anything done while he’s up there; and you just want to help the poor thing down.”

Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel is a post turtle…

Competence Epic fail

So do we

still trust medical opinion? It seems to be crumbling, a victim of wokeism. That plus the Internet.

And the problem is, this is not the first time medical providers have followed a “trendy” but unscientific and damaging path, and the reservoir of public trust is starting to run dry. I see it all the time as people talk about their medical providers. Some patients will shy like a rearing horse at any sign of “woke.”

Surveying the mad rush of physicians to embrace fads forces one to wonder at the lack of moral grounding in medical education. We need not travel back to the heyday of the eugenics movement in the early 20th century to see how imprudently much of the medical profession has faddishly pursued dangerous conceits: lobotomies for mental illness, “repressed memory” of child abuse, mass estrogen prescriptions for post-menopausal women, opioids for any manner of pain relief, experimentation and over-prescription of psychotropic medicines with serious aftereffects, and, now, “sex change” surgery and administration of puberty-blocking drugs. After all this, should courts ever pay attention to briefs submitted by medical “experts”?

Wokeism has at least hastened the death of trust in experts and expertise. A therapeutic bond must be earned, not merely given as a matter of course out of awe of a medical degree.

I remember having lunch with a bunch of judges and potential court-ordered experts. We were all sitting around a big table in a conference room.

One Psychologist there started spouting off on some cock-and-bull Freudian explanation and how she charges more than double for court work than the rest of us did because she is so dang good.

You could almost see the judges rolling their eyes. I spent a TON of time in court after that, but I never saw that psychologist again! Nor did I ever see, over the next 15 years, any reports by her.

And many of US just roll our eyes when “woke” physicians and other medical experts start talking. Same thing.


I really like

Chip Roy. And I have for some time. I think he is a dark horse for President in 2024.


Oh, and you

can BET that there will be a battle royale!

The way “Biden” and his merry minions have spent gives drunken sailors a bad name! This crap has GOT to stop.

So, we need to ask what the nuts and bolts are of what will happen if the “debt ceiling” is NOT raised. Maybe there are programs that need to be pared back a bit. Ya think?

No doubt this is a painful way to do it. Better would be just to gradually draw down spending, but NO, the Democrats (and RINOs) wouldn’t take that obvious, good-sense measure.

It is the Democrat Harry Reid/Jan. 6 committee problem in spades. Dem thinking is notoriously short-term, and when the inevitable comes, it roars back with a vengeance! Usually, the “easy way” has very bad long-term outcomes. THAT is a lesson Democrats have chronically failed to learn.

Oh, and here’s the other part—within a week. So now we are looking at frantic action to stave off what was very predictable MONTHS ago! It’s not hard to look at trend lines…

You HAVE to do it and do it NOW–there’s no time to talk about it! No time to debate! Yes, they could done it in September and October, but there were elections in November!

Captain Obvious Competence Disgusting!

It’s just infuriating!

It’s not “Holding the party hostage,” it is “Holding firm to what is right.”

THAT kind of language is both utterly demeaning and totally tone-deaf! It seems that McCarthy has FAR from learned anything, here, and has turned to disgusting RINO, Democrat-tinged ad hominem tactics.

I wasn’t adamantly opposed to him before, but now I am! Maybe McCarthy should give good-faith attention to what other, more grounded and conservative people are saying!


See, the problem

is that of real life competence versus a mastery of the low arts of politics. See, Joe Biden has indeed mastered the low arts of politics. And that mastery is primary for him.

But once he reached his goal of the presidency, he was like a dog that chases cars and then doesn’t know what to do when he actually catches one!

The goal of taking an office was always the foundational goal, Biden’s North Star, if you will. Competence was never the actual goal or driving force! He just assumed that he could do it. Well, he was wrong…

Trump, on the other hand, came at it from the opposite direction. Yeah, you may not like him, but likability was never the primary factor–it was competence. Get elected, sure, but personal popularity was never the foundational issue! He was competent first.

A primary weakness of MANY voters is that they mistake “nice” for “competent.” Even higher IQ Democrats founder on the shoals of that weakness. And voters who have never run their own business or been an executive bleatingly go down that path.

But sometimes “nice” and “competent” are two very different things. For example, General Patton in WWII was far from “nice.” BUT, he was extraordinarily competent as a tank commander.

Abraham Lincoln, in the Civil War, said of his alcoholic and unpleasant General U.S. Grant, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

Understand well, people didn’t elect DJT because he was “nice.” They elected him because they deemed him competent.


But the President

just won’t look at the mess he caused!


Well, yeah.

Ut’s just amazing what competent political leadership can do!


Whaling and culling

is what you do when you acquire a business! Only a non-executive “worker bee” drone doesn’t understand that! But any of us who actually are (or have been) executives understand it VERY well!

And it’s not that “worker bees” are not needed or valuable. They are very much so. It’s that their role in an organization–and their skill set–is quite different from an executive.
