Buckeye, May June 5th arrive so fast you don’t notice, your surgery be uneventful, and your recovery be carefree.
Thanks, Jimmyk!
What is the best way from Penn station to JFK nowadays. Over the last several months we have had difficulty with American Airlines, Jet Blue, and Delta. Flying ain’t what it used to be. This time, flights cancelled from SYR to JFK. Fortunately, we were going down a day early and stay overnight because we don’t trust 'em anymore. We'll catch an early Amtrak, horse ourselves from Penn Station to JFK and catch our flight to Amsterdam tomorrow night. Will see the 350th anniversary All the Rembrandts show at the Rijksmuseum Monday morning.
the firemen from Fahrenheit 451 Yup, Narc, I’ve spoken about that, too.
In an email response to panelists I wrote: Ours is not a call to arms, but a call to attention — 1930’s Italian communist Antonio Gramsci’s cultural hegemony wanted to propagate its own values as norms to take control. Gramsci’s revolution, according to German radical Rudi Dutschke in 1968, would require a long march through the institutions. The march across the last century has been insidious: 1) pursue state capture, 2) take control, 3) defend their new power structure, 4) fleece people of their resources, and 5) destroy cultural foundations. When you have no ethical framework – or worse have a defective one – one’s personal wants subvert principles in action. Defending against that requires us to diffuse power, encourage competition, and celebrate the individuality necessary for society with others. The study of character has deteriorated across history to the point today it has been cast aside. When character goes missing, Gramscian collectivism threatens. To find the courage to defend against the parasitic co-opting of culture, discover character and why it matters. Each generation is privileged to revalidate institutions, principles, our Constitution, laws, and discover how individual excellence fits into society. Ignorance leads to hubris. Hubris leads to nemesis. And the cycle repeats until humility, knowledge, and insight give us the courage to stand up for ourselves.
If someone isn't doing ... I’d be embarrassed to wear stuff on my sleeve, but next week at my 50th college anniversary I’m on a panel that will discuss what thugocracy is -- from an excellent paper by Prof. Nancy Ries -- who has yet to stretch the scope of her work to see that, rather than a thug, Trump is a response to thuggery.
I think it’s time to put pressure on local Dem representatives. We editorialized at the last election that the vote was not about the candidate, but about their leadership. We need to recall how we were right, and that, regardless of the capabilities of the representative, we can’t afford the warped Democrat leadership circus.
This proves Trump correct to hold his classified document fire. Imagine those in danger -- in agencies, in Congress, and in the media -- in the field of fire.
I think Pelosi and Schumer have enabled a retribution they just can’t envision. Each time they extend the arsenal of tools to go after Trump and his family, they set themselves up to have it used on them. Imagine how Pelosi’s relatives are sweating along side Biden’s son. Or in their hubris do they not see Nemesis. [recycling the perfect analogy]
Omar: ‘Ignorance really is pervasive in many parts of this country’ And mendacity in certain other parts.
Departing Minot. JiB, I think I saw parts of Hoyden’s plane stuck on one of the B-52 tires as it passed by.
wisconsin-democrats-push-automatic-voter-registration So if you accept the registration, but are not eligible because you are an illegal resident, can you be deported if you are caught and identified?
PPS: Mrs. sbw would be a great addition to JOM but she is is at ground zero dealing with nippers and their dysfunctional families and doesn’t have the patience for the noise.

P.S. Mrs. sbw insists, quite correctly, that I point out that CC has three elements: the standards, the curriculum, and the assessments. The New York State adopted curriculum sucks. And like magicians, the deflected attention from companies inserting curricula by focusing attention on standards and assessments. Standards were okay. Assessments are another subject.

I cannot recommend Victor Davis Hanson’s column on Satyricon enough. It absolutely nails the critical failure of Common Core -- David Coleman’s emasculation of history from History -- and pillories the everyday ignorance of today’s pseudo-intellectuals. If you do not delve into the patterns of history it will bite you in the *ss. Hubris is a dangerous fault.

I am so very tired of the media finding Trump supporters who say they don't like his demeanor. James D., I’m tired of the media misrepresenting Trump’s demeanor. The Associated Press sandbags him in almost every paragraph. Just yesterday:Trump's tweet comes after he seemingly sought to soften his tone on Iran following days of heightened tension sparked by his administration's sudden deployment of bombers and an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf over still-unspecified threats.We wrote:The tweet from Trump early on Monday came just hours after a Katyusha rocket fell in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone near the statue of the Unknown Soldier, less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy, causing no injuries. Iraqi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasoul told The Associated Press that the rocket was believed to have been fired from east Baghdad. The area is home to Iran-backed Shiite militias.They don’t try to hide it anymore.

the racial wealth gap: Candidates are regularly bringing up the fact that the typical black family has only one-tenth the assets of the typical white family — a divide that has grown larger than it was 35 years ago. Instead of race, isn’t this damning a welfare system that provides little incentive to work, a concentration of poverty without opportunity in urban ghettos, and the school systems they find there that have been pillaged of useful content?

Sleep helps. After sleep you are one day closer to resolving an issue ... one way or another. Why not sleep?
Buckeye, a gentleman tips his hat but never tips his hand. Open season for coyotes in New York from Oct 1 to March 31, but I’m sure threat to life and limb opens the other months.
Properly prepared, I'd go after multiple coyotes attacking a dog or person.
googling: Although they do communicate verbally and the doe will try to come back for the fawn, sometimes they don't reconnect particularly when there has been human intervention. I would go back to the site and look for the fawn. A rule of thumb is that if the doe hasn't connected with the fawn in 12 hours it's time to step in and call a rehabber. The fawn would be in the general area it was last seen. Instinct will guide it to stay put to avoid detection by a predator so it shouldn't be hard to find if it is still there. If it isn't in the general area, you can breathe easier. and Newborns can move about even on their first day. Typically, however, fawns will not venture forth to graze until they reach between two weeks and a month old. While the mother leaves her fawns alone for periods of time, these baby deer rest safely and should not be disturbed. The mother never ventures far afield, and she will move her fawn when she returns. The spots on the fawns begin to fade at around three to four months old. Fawns wean by the end of summer.
sending immigrants who illegally cross the border, to Florida. Hmmm. Someone leaked a fake plan to the press? Who knew that plan?
