Good

I feel really good. It feels abnormal. Because by good I mean really, really good. I’m not on anything, I’m not doing anything unusual but I feel extremely good.

I’ve started to fear I’ve got an inoperable brain tumor. Because this level of good can’t be normal.

Kamala vs White Supremacy

A real tweet from a real person:

Kamala Harris officially ended her campaign today, which means that all of the candidates who currently qualify for the December Democratic debate are white (Sanders, Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer).

White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks.

I’m very scared of people like this Lauren Duca. They seem completely sincere but that’s what’s so scary. It’s impossible for anybody with a functioning brain honestly to think that the Harris campaign was brought down by “white supremacy.” But these LaurenDucas have abdicated their capacity to think rationally. All they want is to denounce imaginary ideological crimes.

These are very, very scary people. And before you tell me that this LaurenDuca is an isolated dweeb, go on Twitter or FB. This is the #1 most trending reaction to the end of the Harris campaign. I can flood you with examples.

Ukrainian Scripts

I’m on the jury of movie scripts for the Ukrainian film industry. The scripts are in Russian or Ukrainian. We don’t discriminate on language grounds because nobody does that in Ukraine.

Half of the scripts we get feature pedophilia. The rest are based on saccharine WWII stories.

I was hoping things would be better in terms of mental health in Ukraine but judging by the scripts people are in a very bad place mentally.

No Buts

N is telling Klara a story.

“Bunny was going to tell the secret to his friend Bear but then he realized…”

“Daddy!” Klara interrupts indignantly. “You can’t say ‘but.’ It’s a private word!”

Of course, N used this as an opportunity for a spelling lesson but the list of words we aren’t allowed to use is growing. I’ve already had to give up “stupid, dumb, and idiot.”

College Affordability Act

Regardless of whether CAA has a chance of passing, it’s important because it gives us an understanding of the direction in which our ideological and economic superiors want to take higher ed. If this is too long and boring to read, skip to the last sentence.

Here are some of the provisions of the bill:

1. A federally mandated diversity officer on top of one million and five diversity officers we already have. The job of a diversity officer is to correct ideological infractions and implant the correct ideology. There are no thought crimes on campuses because ideological conformity is of the kind Soviet apparatchiks couldn’t imagine in their wildest dreams. So diversity officers manufacture thought crimes to justify their jobs.

2. In addition to the Title IX officers we’ve been saddled with, there is also going to be a Title VI officer. More administrative bloat, more time-wasting trainings and seminars about the value of diversity, more hysterical searches for thought crimes.

3. Colleges’ funding is tied to how many completely unprepared students they take and how much remediation they offer. Public colleges should emphasize remediation and student services above all to get funding. Colleges would have to “develop and implement evidence-based programs that boost degree completion through academic and financial advising and other student supports.” If you don’t know what this means, you are not in the higher ed system.

4. The funding of college studies is structured in a way that discourages students from working while they go to school. This would mean a skyrocketing rate of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, etc. Which will, in turn, necessitate another crowd of idiot bureaucrats on campus to address the manufactured crisis.

I truly hope nobody tries to share how they went to college in 1934 and didn’t have a job but that didn’t cause mental illness. In 1934, an alternative to a job was absolutely anything whatsoever except for staring at a darn smartphone for 20 hours a day. Students who don’t work don’t head to the library, to the gym, or to a party. They head to their dorm room to sit alone staring at a screen and feeling like losers.

5. Pell Grant eligibility is increased to 7 years. Again, for the completely clueless, this means retaining in college people who don’t need college and who are wasting their lives doing something that’s not for them. But that’s the whole problem behind this bill. Its guiding principle is that everybody absolutely needs college as a time in their lives when they are completely separated from any normal life and do absolutely nothing but get indoctrinated. If it takes 6, 7, 10 years, so be it.
