The good Sally

Back when I was a police reporter I covered fires and crime scenes at which the Salvation Army invariably showed up and dispensed coffee and donuts free of charge. Even to reporters. With no religious talk whatsoever.

I like to donate stuff to them instead of Goodwill with its high-paid executives, and will double-down on the commitment now that the Sally is under assault from the Left. Who isn’t?

“We believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population,” The Salvation Army said in a statement after Chick-fil-A announced its decision [to stop contributing to them for their alleged discrimination]. As the Wall Street Journal concluded, “Considering it serves nearly 25 million people every year, that’s likely true.”

Leader of the Coup

“Although many people believe that the FBI launched the Trump-Russia conspiracy probe, it was actually John Brennan who relentlessly pushed it on the Bureau. Note that he did this while the CIA is not supposed to intrude on domestic politics. That didn’t matter to him. He was anti-Trump, and so he made sure the FBI would do something against the man who’d end up winning the 2016 presidential election.”

Brennan even hired and placed in the White House the Schiff impeachment charade’s CIA whistleblowerleaker. Cozy, eh?

UPDATE: VDH: Public coup talk is now permissable in the deep state.

Little Spectrum problem fixed

Been offline for almost three days. Back on after Spectrum replaced the modem. Hurrah. Being without Internet is a lot like going cold-turkey off an addictive drug.

Stop talking about racism

“…it’s the only way to end racism—stop talking about it. We already have laws against it, for a long time now, as we should. And they should be strictly enforced. But the rest of the blah-blah has got to go. It only makes people hate each other. It creates racism rather than solves it.”—Roger L. Simon

India goes for Luna

Blast off of an Indian orbiter, a 1.4-ton moon lander and a 56-pound robot mobile rover on the far side of the moon is today, seven months after the Chinese put a lander on the far side of the moon.

These landers are preparation for manned explorations, including establishment of moon bases, however small at first. Trump reportedly is (take that for what it’s worth) angry that NASA isn’t moving faster on putting Americans back on the moon by 2024.

NASA is a biiiggg bureaucracy—with lots of paperwork—which moves at a snail’s pace. I’m betting on the first base being Chinese.

Our first third-world state

It’s Mexifornia, of course. Where historian Victor Davis Hanson sees:

“We have the highest income tax rates,” said Hanson of California. “We have the highest gas tax rates. We have among the highest sales tax. Our schools [and] our infrastructure is in the bottom ten percent. I don’t remember one out of every three people being admitted to a hospital suffering from diabetes in California. When I was growing up we didn’t have two or three dialysis clinics in every single little town. We have an epidemic of health problems and yet the money to address that is such that we can’t spend it on infrastructure.”

What happens in California stays in California. Let’s hope.

Montana glaciers refuse to melt

Climate scientists have been revising their predictions of Montana glacier disappearance regularly since 1941. They have to. The damn thing refuses to pay attention to global warming/climate change. They’ve revised it recently to 2044, “which is almost a century later than the original forecast,” says Tony Heller of realclimatesciences.com.

It’s like the supposed death of the polar bears. Which also hasn’t happened no matter how fat Al Gore’s bank account continues to grow.
