Things Are Getting Really, Really Creepy…

 

I had to fly to Boston this weekend to help my sister fix up her new house.  I almost didn’t make it back to work on Monday, because my flight was canceled at the last minute, and I had to buy another ticket on another airline, which was canceled, and so on.  I made it home eventually, and was less than amused to hear Pete Buttigieg’s statement about the rash of flight cancellations.  He said that if the airlines couldn’t fix this problem quickly, then government would be forced to step in.

Ok, so let’s see here.  So the government said that a pilot would not be allowed to work unless he had the COVID vaccine.  Many pilots chose not to do so, and were fired.  Which was fine, as long as nobody was traveling.  But once people started to travel again, the airlines couldn’t handle the passenger load because they had fewer pilots available.  Because they had fired them last year.  Because the government told them to.  And now, the government blames the airlines.

What’s most distressing about this is that it’s not even remarkable.  This is how leftism works.  Take a private industry that works.  Destroy it with regulations & taxes & accusations of improper behavior.  Then point out to the people that the government will take over this industry because, sadly, it doesn’t work for the people, the way our government does.  Joe Biden is doing that to the oil industry now:

The president also said that the U.S. has a chance to transition into using electric vehicles and renewable energy. He said his team would be sitting down with the CEOs of oil companies this week to find out “how they justify making $35 billion in the first quarter.”

Biden and Buttigieg are very openly saying to the oil and airline industries, “Gosh, that’s a nice business you got there.  It’d sure be a shame if something were to happen to it.”  And then the leftists who accused Trump of being a tyrant read about what Biden is doing and they yell, “Go get ’em, Joe!  Yeah!!!”

Meanwhile, the FBI just arrested a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Michigan.  And searched his home.  Very publicly.

Meanwhile, a show trial is being broadcast by all the major networks, to help Democrats right before the mid-terms.

Meanwhile, even suspicion that one might not support Democrats can get people fined or fired from their jobs.  Even football coaches.

Meanwhile, questioning a very questionable election can get one removed from social media platforms.  The limits to free speech are growing rapidly, although only in one direction.

Meanwhile, government agencies that used to have very specific jobs, like the FBI and the CDC, are now clearly simply leftist organizations tasked with promoting the Democrat party.  But they’re still officially government agencies.

Meanwhile, our news media has completely abandoned any pretense of objectivity, saying “Fairness is over-rated“.  Our news media now openly acknowledges that their job is to destroy the Republican Party and to promote the policies of the Democrat party.

Add all this up.  Read all that again, if you can stand it.  Think of it all together, for just a moment.  You don’t have to connect the dots.  The dots connect themselves.

This is getting creepy.  Really, really creepy.

Holy crap.

Leftists tend to gain power through subtle attacks on society.  Once they have power, they tend to abandon subtlety.  I suspect that Leon Trotsky would suggest that we take these open threats as, well, as threats.

I’m really trying not to panic here.  But things are getting really, really creepy.

Holy crap…

    My daughter, husband, and granddaughter spent the other night in a Dallas airport hotel because their connection cancelled.

    We are well into a Marxist cultural revolution. Why do you think they want our “military style” guns taken away first?

    I just had a long conversation with a gun grabber that actually had a detailed framework of what he wanted to do. This was on Twitter. They want to regulate guns based on wattage output. So it’s like the caliber, the velocity, and the rate of fire. Then you have levels like flying levels of airplanes. It’s obviously disingenuous. Then you throw in that stuff like you have to have insurance on each kind. RINOs that don’t study gun policy are a menace.

    I totally recommend the latest interview by Lisa Boothe of John Lott. She does a really good job on every podcast.

    Rifles are a red herring. They aren’t involved in that many homicides. Mass shootings using the loosest definition by the FBI are 1% of homicides. 87% are drug gang fights. The most of the rest are robberies that got out of control. Regulating magazines is a complete waste of time because they are so easy to manufacture. Iwas surprised to learn that children dying in gun accidents is only 3% of all homicides.

    New laws are stupid. They just need to resource the ones we have.

    Regulating magazine size is foolish, too, and serves no purpose other than to make many guns unusable since existing handgun mags would be illegal. They would then regulate all new ones which wouldn’t be around until manufacturers could redesign and retool to make functional legal ones. That would not be a good investment because the banners would deter that with the promise of lawsuits. Since size is irrelevant for offensive purposes and mags can be swapped in 2-3 seconds, and since this doesn’t impact how many rounds a killer could carry, and since the government would still field whatever size it wants, they only address mag size for nefarious reasons.

    For every banner I engage in debate, there are at least ten I block. Rarely do I find one interested in facts.I believe most are the sock-puppets of Everytown radicals.

    I don’t know many Democrats but none of them would vote for any Republican. We won’t know until after the next election. If they hold the congress is there a fix?

    That is why I am content to tolerate high energy costs and bare shelves for a while. They will only change their thinking by feeling results in the economics lab, not by reading economics theory. If they never learn then your next idea will happen.👇

    Are we capable of taking Republican states and pieces of Democrat states and just leaving? I doubt it.

    It would be a nasty mess that none should want as the solution. But if suffering continues, people would be more inclined to do so, and more bitter towards the other side. The thought scares me. I do not want it but what Democrats promise scares me, too.

    Jan 6 was a missed opportunity to warn them that they had crossed the red line the last five years and better moderate their intentions. The protesters were a milder form of Democrat kinetic tactics, a language they understood. Sadly, the only message the Democrats received was do whatever you want and our only acceptable response will be to condemn those who push back. Breaking into the capitol on live TV shocked us, but we should be more shocked at what has happened since. As individuals, we can do nothing and we will be destroyed by the federal government. As united states, led by a strong governor, we can push back. DeSantis has shown us the peaceful way to push back. We need that model in every red state. However, he would be neutered by the deep state DC cesspool as President. We saw under Trump that winning the White House really does nothing lasting.

    Democrats have been invading capitols since at least Scott Walker was governor of Wisconsin in 2011, turning it into a game.  I guess it’s different now.  They also destroy cities and neighborhoods.

    Don’t be naïve about gun policy. Republicans that are naïve about gun policy are a menace. They just need to resource the laws we have. The only place that gun control can work is New York City, and if the management of the city isn’t motivated to do it right, that is not going to work.

    And the airlines can’t quickly hire new pilots because in 2009 – after a horrific plane crash – government had to “do something!” So they increased the hours of flight time to get a commercial license from 250 hrs to 1,500. Now, the pilots in the 2009 crash had lots of flight time… over 2200 each. But never mind … “do something!”

    In 2009, after a Colgan Air crash near Buffalo killed 50 people, Congress decided that airlines could only hire aspiring commercial pilots who already had lots of flight time. Instead of 250 hours, now they have to have 1,500 hours.

    …The sixfold increase wouldn’t have prevented the Colgan crash. Those pilots had many more than 1,500 hours of flight time. The pilot had 3,379 — the co-pilot, 2,244. That didn’t matter to the politicians. “We need to improve pilot training, address flight crew hours and service,” said Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).

    Yet the co-pilot in that crash, who was flying the plane, mentioned in almost her last words that she had never flown in such a storm before. 

    “22:12:05.0 HOT-2 I’ve never seen icing conditions. I’ve never deiced. I’ve never seen any-I’ve never experienced any of that. I don’t want to have to experience that and make those kinds of calls. you know I’dve freaked out. I’dve have like seen this much ice and thought oh my gosh we were going to crash.”

    She did not need more flight time.  She needed more simulator time in ice storms. https://tailstrike.com/database/12-february-2009-colgan-air-3407/

    I am not trying to be overly optimistic, but there are democrats and there are Democrats. 

    I know a number of people in their 20s, a significant percent are Hispanic, who voted for Biden and the Democrats. Gas prices, inflation ect have them willing to vote Republican. These are the soft democrats, just read some headlines and get that Democrats are good and Republicans are evil racists. Now they are seeing that Democrats are not good for them. 

    Not sure how many would just reflexively vote for anyone with R behind their name, candidate quality still matters but there are people who vote democrat, without being fully knowlegible about Democrat goals/policies, that may vote Republican next or at least stay home.

Not just him but many others who have been rather dormant for some time are now emerging from their long slumber and applying their craft with much gusto. I’m guessing the secret signal was hidden between the lines in the Ashley Biden diary and they all got it loud and clear.

    Yes and no.  There are newbies (maybe student subscriptions) and old resubscribers.  The newbies seem to have something to say, the resubscribers not so much in my view.  But it’s a matter of taste, I guess.

    A number of resubscribers say they’ve only reactivated their memberships as a charitable act for the financially encumbered company.

    That’s my experience – even the ones with buyer’s remorse over Biden. I have a friend with generally reasonable views on most topics who still believes that Trump was worse in every way than Hillary could possibly be and that even though Pres. Brandon is a disaster, it’s because the wrong people are in charge. And it doesn’t matter because – at least he’s not Trump. He sees the Jan 6  TV show as justification for his attitude. His idea is fixed in concrete and no possible alternate view is acceptable. So we skip discussing politics…

    It hasn’t escaped me that my attitude towards Hillary vs Trump was a virtual mirror image of his but of course I felt that her record as a crook made her far worse in my mind. My friend believes that Trump was even more crooked as a businessman. 

    For me, my vote for Trump was a combination of hope and a needed cauterization against the malevolent corruption of the Clintons. I think many others were similarly motivated and somewhat pleasantly surprised by the good things that occurred during his four years, despite him fighting massive political tsunami winds hurled at him by the Dems. I didn’t like everything he said or did. I hoped the office would moderate his presentation into something more statesmanlike. That was probably a foolish hope.   

    Our system was designed to require many compromises to govern but one of the weaknesses of this design is that they likely expected the “middle” around which those compromises bounced, to be closer to the traditional Western Christian traditions and morals of the time.  If the GOP promotes someone perceived as “in the middle” today, will it feel like a betrayal to many in conservatives who see the current “middle” as too far left by a long shot?? Probably. I agree that the key is having a Newt Gingrich-style Contract – a plan that both the conservatives and the middle independents can embrace. The GOP can’t just run on “heh – we’re more competent that the current Dems.” There must be a concrete plan to which they can be held accountable. IMHO…. :-)

    Case in point:

    California lawmakers promise relief with probe into ‘gas price gouging’

    Democratic lawmakers in the State Assembly announced a probe into California’s oil and gas market on Monday, saying profiteering in the industry is partially behind the state’s record high gas prices that are hovering around $6.40 a gallon.

    The oil industry has a “foot on our necks and a hand in our pockets,” Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon said during a news conference announcing a committee to investigate the industry’s pricing practices.

    “These are companies that are obviously ripping off California consumers, and we need to ask tough questions about them and their business practices,” he said.

    “As legislators, we owe it to our constituents to answer the question on everybody’s mind: Why do gas prices continue to rise?” said Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin of Thousand Oaks, the committee chair.

    Gee, I wonder why our gas prices are so high?  It’s obviously not the state legislature’s fault, and clearly it’s not the Biden Administration’s fault, so who can we blame?  I know, let’s pin it on greedy corporations!
