End of the week, and it's been a looong day

Therefore, something to take the mind off the stresses

Californicated is run by fools

As if we didn't already know that.
This dialogue was punctuated by a pithy tweet from Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, who describes herself as a progressive Democrat, “F*ck Elon Musk.”

At that time, we had no idea how much that tweet, and attitude, would cost us.
No, a lot of people knew what it would cost; people like you didn't listen or didn't believe it.
Nine months later, Elon Musk is gone. He is selling all his personal real estate in the state. He is now a resident of the state of Texas. He has moved his philanthropic foundation to Texas, too.

Consider the unfathomable irony of progressive Democrats forcing Elon Musk to give up on California.

When Rush Limbaugh moved out of New Effing York, the idiot currently Mayor said "If I'd known that was all it took to get rid of Limbaugh, I'd have raised taxes years ago."  Someone at one of the papers did a piece pointing out what an idiot the Mayor was, including "You know how much he paid to the city last year, counting up all the taxes and fees?  Now it's all gone, and you think it's funny."  Then, when lots of rich people started getting out of the city and state because of the raising taxes and the idiot Wuhan rules ruining the restaurant/theater/museum/social reasons they'd kept living there, Comrade Mayor said 'good riddance'.  Now they're losing all that tax income, and anyone in city/state government with a brain is wondering how much they can raise taxes on everyone else before the mobs start hanging politicians and bureaucrats('not nearly soon enough', I'd say).

They never effing learn.

Yes, it's the first evening of the weekend,



It started raining, was still just rain when I went to bed,

then some freezing rain and then snow.  A few inches worth, the streets are either packed or- where there's been traffic- slushy.  Supposed to hit 37 for the high, so a lot of that will be gone by evening.

Now I must fortify myself to go out in it.  This should be fun.

It appears that public schools truly often are child abuse

because your kids are under the control of idiots like these.
Gurdon highlighted that in 2018, a Seattle English teacher tweeted that he would rather die than teach the “The Scarlet Letter” under the hashtag #disruptexts. The biography of Twitter account @DisruptTexts, says it is “a movement to rebuild the literary canon using an antibias, antiracist critical literacy lens.”

Shea Martin on her Twitter account, that has now been restricted to those who do not follow her already, said in June:
“Be like Odysseus and embrace the long haul to liberation (and then take the Odyssey out of your curriculum because it’s trash).”

Heather Levine, a ninth-grade English teacher at Lawrence High School in Massachusetts, replied:
“Hahaha …. Very proud to say we got the Odyssey removed from the curriculum this year!”

And the administration is too chickenshit to handle questions:
Gurdon contacted Levine to confirm that the school removed the Odyssey from the curriculum, but was told her inquiry was “invasive.”

The English Department chairman of Lawrence Public Schools did not return Gurdon’s multiple requests for comment.

These people are assholes, control freaks and fools.

Since this has been a somewhat sucky year,

I'm going to close it with someone very pleasant: Kelly Brook

And below the fold,

And some more
