Before last week, I had no idea what a mud room was. But now I passionately want one.
After the CBD fumes cleared out of my head, the feeling of getting back to being myself was absolutely delightful. I like being me. I now feel especially sad for habitual potheads. Have you considered getting psychological health to get to enjoy being you? Pot is like using a tire iron to break open a Faberge egg. There are a lot more delicate ways of carrying the burden of being your self. Why choose such a brutal one?
I obviously support JKRowling but it’s really maddening that she is suddenly a huge feminist cause while the fact that school closures make working impossible for millions of women isn’t.
This is a gigantic loss for female employment, self-determination, financial self-sufficiency, everything. But there’s a deafening silence on this subject.
Enough with JKRowling already. Let’s talk about the women who have been thrown out of the workplace by the neurotic rich ladies who can afford to indulge their anxieties at everybody else’s expense.
Of course, it took about 2 seconds for BLM to turn in the direction of Jew hatred.
Read comments to this tweet (which is one of very many) and remember how the exact same thing happened to the Women’s March that soon enough turned into an Anti-semitic Women’s March.
In Iceland, a stunning percentage of the population was tested for coronavirus, and this is what was found:
This is, of course, one of a dozen sources that say exactly the same: there’s no evidence that children transmit, let alone get seriously ill. There are no studies I’ve seen that show children do transmit, although it should be harder to prove a negative. Yet people go batshit crazy if you mention any of this science. Really unhinged and scary. Question: who got them this way and for what purpose?
To me, the answer is clear. This is a convenient way to get them to beg for their welfare (free schooling) to be taken away. And it works.
My kid had the absolute best time in quarantine for one reason: I didn’t watch or read a single news report on COVID. It doesn’t mean I’m indifferent to the subject. I actually know tons about it. But I didn’t let those vile manipulators mess with my brain.
I’m very glad I figured out they are all liars in time.
It took me 24 hours to get back to normal after the contretemps with the pothead bath salts. Once I recovered, I realized that in my dazed state I had taken advantage of a sale on Israeli history books and purchased a bunch.
I can quit narcotic bath salts any time but book-buying is a different story.
If it’s between e-learning and homeschooling, I’d 100% choose homeschooling. I see absolutely no value in obligatory vegetation in front of a screen.
It’s definitely one of the huge ironies of life that I now seriously consider homeschooling plans because the alternative is so unappetizing. I have accepted that schools don’t teach anything, I accepted that they are anti-health. I accepted that they are extremely ideological. But when it comes to turning kids into little screen addicts, my tolerance has reached its limit. Plus, if the sociability aspect is gone, I fail to see the point altogether.
I can’t even believe I’m writing this.
Schools – and that means the capacity to make a living and practice your career – are held hostage until we give them what they want and vote the right way. As soon as we do that, evidence will appear (or, rather, will be noticed) that there’s no danger in opening schools.
“Cancel culture” sounds catchy and cute (plus, there’s alliteration, which always makes for a good slogan) but it’s confusing and open to endless time-consuming debates. What constitutes canceling? What’s a culture?
Once you call it what it really is, JOB WARS, things become much clearer. Job wars intensify once jobs start evaporating. We are in a recession, so job wars have become vicious.
Similarly, “Resistance” (does anybody even remember it anymore?) is a lot easier to understand if you remember that it’s a class war.
There are many discussions of Marxism yet there’s not a shade of a class-based analysis of anything.
No, not everything is about the economy. But cancel culture, resistance, and #metoo absolutely are.
Here’s Cliff Arroyo’s analysis of Robin DiAngelo’s book as a tool of workplace discipline. Unless you think of the book as a workplace phenomenon, you won’t understand it. And the same goes for microaggressions as a concept.
