An Example to Young Girls

 

My daughter is a high school freshman who is hard-working and ambitious. She is growing up at a time where some of her teachers will point to women in power as an example of what she can achieve. Evidently, my little girl is looking to these women and taking notice.

This brings me to this morning. Ninth graders had state testing and there were a few questions on the test regarding topics her teachers never went over. That led to this text exchange:

 

She is a good kid but I am not sure where this wiseguy attitude comes from . . . I mean, her Mom isn’t like that.

    Maybe it is because Kamala is so bad (or so good at word salad, if one prefers) that the wiseguy attitude erupts when there is no other avenue available.

    Yeah, we’ll go with that. I was afraid someone might try to say she gets it from her father.

    I love her complaint about non-existent math instruction and her answer really gets to the point, not very wiseguy at all.

    An isosceles triangle is one where Kamela Harris and someone just as tall as Kamela Harris start falling forward at the same moment. At the exact moment they bump their heads, they form an isosceles triangle. After they form an isosceles triangle, they both begin to kackle and fall down. Moral of the story: Never do anything with Kamela Harris and expect it to work out.

    Getting the wrong answer is exactly where Madame Veep excels.  And besides, math is just what math means when we mean for it to mean something that we mean. Together.

    That is hilarious.

    I can’t remember who discussed things like this, it might have been Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell, but they noted that back when Jackie Robinson was getting his shot at the big leagues he and those promoting him knew he had to be the best of the best or no one would be convinced that blacks could play on the same teams as whites. Of course he more than proved himself, and thus he opened the door for others.

    The problem nowadays is that the Left chooses without merit or skill, only for those who look like they fit the bill and who can generally be counted on to support the Left’s agenda. The result is that we get politicians that leave doubts when there really should be none.

    Is it possible that Miss Teen South Carolina grew up to be VP?

    Thanks. On the one hand I want her to respect her elders, but on the other hand, her elders have to pick up their game a bit.

    Harris isn’t a real person, is she?  She’s a robot whose chip has malfunctioned.

    You gotta wonder how she could ever articulate a case in court . . .

    Ladies and, um, gentleman of the jury, the defendant’s guilt is the reason for a guilty verdict. Guilty people are guilty so you should come back with a verdict of guilty based on the guilt.

    Maybe that explains why it makes that weird annoying cackling noise every time you ask it a question. You kinda can’t get it to stop.

    Maybe if you turn it off then back on, let it reboot?

    The cackle is a feature, not a bug . . .

    Listening to Kamala speak is like listening to a freshman English major read See Spot Run. Painful.
