This video of snowflake students at Evergeen State College is some kind of crazy.  And my goodness is Dr. George Bridges, the college president, the opposite of a leader. 

I'd just like to ask the logically challenged snowflakes at Evergreen State what happens when their right to freedom of speech is taken away?
This is a really, really well stated rebuttal to the morons at Evergreen State:

Here's how it's done.



Janus Fund? What's that? Never heard of it!

American Terrorist

I'm not sure I see a difference between this horrible person, a D list failure:

And this horrible person in black:
A failure comic shows OUR president's head cut off and bloody.  Tell you what, Colin Kaepernick kneeling down doesn't seem all that unpatriotic after this.
I encourage Kathy Griffin to leave the country and give up her citizenship.  She's obviously completely un-American. 

And dear Kathy, please don't visit my neck of the wood anytime soon, or ever.  That's Pennsylvania.  We don't take kindly to traitors and terrorist as they do in Hollywood, California, or maybe Van Nuys as your case may be.

"Racist" Gets Fired

5:41 PM 0
I am a huge Formula 1 racing fan. I watch every race and I generally support the drivers that have been put through that mixer. Yesterday ex-Formula 1 driver Takuma Sato won the Indianapolis 500. It's the first Indianapolis 500 that I've watched since Nigel Mansell lost when he didn't realize that rules don't actually mean rules. He came out of a yellow flag according to regulations and he didn't realize he should have come out of the yellow flag as bat out of hell, like everyone else. He was in first, but after that, didn't finish in first.

But yesterday Fernando Alonso and Takuma Sato, from Formula 1, and there were a few others from that parish, both raced in the Indy 500.  Now the pinnacle of the auto racing world is Formula 1.  That is the series where the most amount of money and the most amount of science is applied to make cars win races.   The Formula 1 cars make Indy cars look like commuter vehicles, from a technology standpoint, certainly not a speed standpoint, because it's a lot easier to engineer a car to race around loops than it is to have to turn the steering wheel to the right occasionally.

After Sato won the race, Terry Frei of the Denver Post Tweeted: "Nothing specifically personal, but I am very uncomfortable with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend,".  

Now, we are generations away from that horrible war, as all wars are, and does Mr. Frei think that we should ban Japanese drivers from the race?  I certainly don't think anyone should be banned from the race as long as they are qualified and haven't oppressed other humans.  Takuma Sato won the race and cheers to him.  Sato is world class and deserves the shot to race, and he did the most with it.

But this is where I have a problem, the Sporting News reported what I thought was a very reasonable article about the situation here.  Media idiot inserts foot into mouth; media idiot gets fired.  Yup, sounds right.

My concern is that other mainstream media outlets are reporting OTHER PEOPLES' reaction calling it racist.  When did it become the media's responsibility to report reactions instead of the news?  And I wasn't aware Japanese was a race, and I'm pretty sure it's not.  But that doesn't stop our mainstream propagandists from reporting this sort of tripe.  To be fair, they aren't saying it's racist, they are just reporting that other people are saying he is racist.  Fine lines, but I say at the least unnecessary and more likely, socially inflammatory. I say Mr. Frei isn't a racist; he's a bigot, and if he's a sports reporter he should be fired.  But there is a huge difference in the social implication.  But what do I know?  According to Mr. Panos, maybe they are all just Chinese.....

While the scene is not specifically referenced in this Zerohedge Post, the subtext certainly references it. A great explanation of synthetic CDOs from Selena Gomez and Dr. Richard Thaler:

Racism Has No Place In College Athletics!

5:14 AM 0
Look at this racist report from CBSports:
Oddly, none of them were beat off the dribble possession after possession in the Bruins’ 86-75 Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky. That honor belonged to Lonzo Ball, LaVar’s son, who watched De’Aaron Fox go for 39 points in 36 minutes.
I mean calling out an African American for making a mistake is racist, isn't it???? Here's the article in it's entirety:
LaVar Ball has a new theory for why UCLA didn’t win the national championship he predicted UCLA would win: too many “white guys.” “Realistically you can’t win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow,” he told The Orange County Register. UCLA had three white starters this season -- Bryce Alford, TJ Leaf and Thomas Welsh. Oddly, none of them were beat off the dribble possession after possession in the Bruins’ 86-75 Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky. That honor belonged to Lonzo Ball, LaVar’s son, who watched De’Aaron Fox go for 39 points in 36 minutes. Also worth noting: Duke’s 2010 national championship team had three white starters -- Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler and Brian Zoubek -- and five of the eight Blue Devils who played in the title game that year were, to use Ball’s phrase, “white guys.”
