How do progressives rationalize the destruction brought by their diversity? How a progressive dies: Delusion of Dignity in Death by Diversity.I have encounters with Muslim people, and it seems they have strict rules to be observed; but not a discernment about what is behind the rules. For instance, in Christianity many don’t listen to rock music; but it’s not a rule about a speed of tempo, or a list of approved instruments. It’s having an ear for what is proud and rebellious, what is sensual or aggressive.I’m not sure Islam has that.
In the Christian bible, it says husbands love your wives. It appears that in Islam, you don’t have to win a woman’s favor, just take what you want. I’m wondering if there will come a time when young western guys realize that in Islam, there are some rules to be strictly observed, but lots of leeway elsewhere.
On to Donald Trump. Well, actually not about him, but he’s involved. I don’t have the wording verbatim, but NPR was airing an interview with a famous guy; I think he was a guest on Saturday Night Live, when Donald Trump was hosting. Don’t expect me to remember famous star names, because I haven’t had a TV in about 27 years; and man am I glad. Anyway, the parties in the interview were quite glib about wanting to know which era Donald Trump would like to go back to. Was it Jim Crow? Some other oppressive era?
Easy to get caught of guard by that I suppose; but a few seconds of thought will produce the answer…how about a time when the country wasn’t 19 trillion dollars in debt that it couldn’t repay? How about a time when Americans had the sense to avoid foreign wars if possible? how about a time when a man that wanted to work could get a job at a factory and support his family? Now most of the factories are gone. What factories and construction jobs are here are filled by ‘recent immigrants’. That’s just the beginning of the answer.
Do these people actually think minority communities are better off now than then? Look at the unemployment rate, look at the crime rate. Look at the way young Black people dress, and the music they listen to. The lyrics treat the young women like a piece of meat, not a lovely young lady (which she could be). It’s self destruction; but I guess as long as Whitey’s not doing it, well, they’re so much better off. It’s that 4 D’s thing again, Black version. The progressives are using racial diversity to bring behavioral diversity.
As usual, there’s a lot going on. I might have mentioned it already, but I bought a 1987 Toyota pickup. Man, does it run sweet. It was in the salt of New York State for 6 years, so it has some problems, but it fits the debt free program. I’ve started a blog called The Restoration; it covers a number of my restoration projects. It can be seen > HERE.Now, some random pictures. I’ve probably seen blue clouds before, but they didn’t stand out the way this one did. It’s not the sky showing through. My son got a plastic snow sliding board majiggy for Christmas. We had no snow at the time, so on a rather frosty morning, he took it down a steep hill in the pasture. One must always remember the changes in physical properties that temperature can bring. Frozen Moo-doo is apparently pretty solid.My wife’s nephew drives a semi, which he just about owns. He said that some companies help a guy get financing for a big rig, and send hims lots of work for awhile. But later, the work trickles off, and ownership of the truck reverts to the company, because the driver can’t afford it. Watch for that one. Anyway, we were working on an outdoor project, and he backed up his tractor to shine his new LED lights on our work. There were some neat (weird?) pictures to be had, if one got the camera and tripod. One of those pictures is looking up at the bottom of a tree’s branches.
