DAILY BIBLE VERSE
8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.9
Psalm 118:8 KJV
I’m sure you’ll be shocked to hear that a far-left, virtue-signaling law passed by San Francisco’s leaders backfired, didn’t do what was intended, and only ended up costing San Franciscans more money. Yeah, I know: you could say that about virtually every law they pass. But this specific law was their 2016 ordinance barring city employees from traveling to or contracting with any states that banned same sex marriage.
Over the years, they kept adding other “progressive” issues that any other states might dare to disagree with them about, such as abortion and “voting rights” (i.e., voter integrity laws to ensure fair elections.) The list of states they were boycotting grew from eight to 30, more than half the nation, as the bubble they lived in threw thicker and thicker.
Now, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is considering repealing the law after a report found that it’s not only been totally ineffective (surprisingly, no other states changed their values because San Francisco disapproved), but it also made contracting and compliance a complicated mess and severely limited the city’s choice of contractors, raising their costs by up to 20%.
It’s an encouraging sign that even in San Francisco, people are finally starting to wake up to the high cost of being woke. I’m also thankful that this gives me a good segue to Kurt Schlichter’s new column, which is, as usual, brutally hilarious. It’s about the many self-inflicted woes that California is suffering and why so many people are abandoning the “California lifestyle” and moving out (Kurt: “Hobos dropping last night’s boloney sandwich on your lawn is not a ‘lifestyle.’”)
He also echoes something I’ve written about many times, although usually in reference to New York: that once people start realizing they can do the same job via the Internet in a state that doesn’t tax and regulate them to death, where criminals are put in jail and housing costs a fraction as much and people use bathrooms instead of the sidewalk, the leftist politicians’ golden goose will be cooked.
Here’s my response to Biden’s claim that inflation is under control
President Biden continues to claim that inflation is dropping and most Americans just don’t realize how great they have it because the media doesn’t give him friendly enough coverage. (Yes, he actually believes that, and has said as much.)
Here’s my response to his claim that inflation is under control: the food court at Costco in Seattle is now charging $9.99 for an unimpressive roast beef sandwich.
The Washington Post fact checks the Biden White House
You know the Biden White House’s attempt to blame Trump for the East Palestine train derailment is as dead as the many animals “mysteriously” dying in the area when even the Washington Post runs a fact-check shredding it.
Ben Shapiro on the COVID-19 lab leak story and the reasons why national leaders and the World Health Organization tried to bury it (another reason to fight Biden’s insane idea of giving the WHO control over our pandemic responses) and why the media ignored it and mocked and shamed anyone who brought it up. In short, this is what happens when so-called “experts” refuse to look at the evidence and make judgements about claims based on whether or not they like and approve of the people bringing them up.
Fox News has an analysis of how the paper-of-broken-record, The New York Times, helped mislead Americans by aggressively pushing the idea that the lab leak theory was just a wild, rightwing, racist conspiracy theory.
Related: Jon Stewart reacts to news of the Energy Department believing the virus likely leaked from the Wuhan lab and talks about how even his fans on the left turned on him, canceled him and called him a racist when he dared to suggest that possibility to Steven Colbert.
And today’s winner is…
Today’s winner of the coveted Huck’s Hubris Award is “1619 Project” author Nikole Hannah-Jones, who has become a millionaire and a Pulitzer Prize winner with fat book and Hulu contracts, celebrity status and high-paid speaking gigs, all for distorting America’s history and claiming to be a victim of systemic racial oppression. But that’s not why she won the Hubris Award. No, she gets that for lecturing an immigrant who escaped communist China and who appreciates America that she just doesn’t understand what oppression is.
PBS: The game “Monopoly” is racist
Proving that they’re using our tax dollars for only the highest priority issues, PBS produced an episode of the series “American Experience” that goes after the “dark history” of the board game “Monopoly,” declaring it racist and a tool to brainwash youth with “toxic capitalism.”
Funny, considering you get $200 just for passing “Go” and can be handed a “Get Out of Jail Free” card, I assumed it was based on liberalism.
And I love this genius quote: “It’s a cutthroat game. I only win when you lose!” Isn’t that true of EVERY board game?
This show is just the latest argument for why public broadcasting should be kicked off the taxpayer dole and told to go rely on capitalism.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY:
