Wednesday [1]

7.  Moore of the same

6. Towards Wokeness

Even we dissidents, who consider ourselves fully aware of the Left’s insanity, can use the occasional refresher — not least because we unconsciously assume that the Left’s real weirdos are Internet People, or academics. But they’re not. Unplug completely over the weekend, then turn on prime time tv. It’s the Star Wars cantina scene, and it’s everywhere.

5.  Satirical site Babylon Bee

4. Use the left’s own tactics?

I’m going to suggest that the remainder of January be dedicated to Nike, that Oh-So-Woke company that decided to make the Betsy Ross flag a Hate Symbol. So, for the rest of the month, every day, wear something with the Nike symbol on it, and post a picture of yourself on social media, referencing this post.

2. World stage

A Polish man asked me yesterday about Donnie hitting Gen. Salami and as expected, his reality was MSM, he was in high dudgeon.

I asked what was wrong with taking out a mass murderer, esp. of small children and he said … but still.  But still what?  Anyway, it’s not about Iran, it’s about finding the excuse to bring the troops home, which mollifies a voting sector, plus it lures Putin into the open.

I don’t like politics, he said.

Meanwhile, these bushfires:

    My wife’s favourite is to ask me something from the next room so that I hear e.g. “mumble mumble mumble mumble tomorrow?”
    When I ask her what she said she repeats the last word: “tomorrow”.
    Then we spend about five minutes going back and forth with her saying “tomorrow” and me saying “yes, I heard “tomorrow”, it was the bit before that I missed. Just say the whole sentence again.” And she says “go there tomorrow” and I say “Where?” and she says “I told you” and I say “I DIDN’T HEAR YOU” and she says…

    Well, you get the idea. 🙂

      Love it.

      My variation is the supermart barn – walk in to the strains, through the tannoys, of some girl adenoidal-howling, then varying the pitch of the howl upwards [supposedly called music], then sideways and if I complained, you know exactly what they’d say about ‘we’ve never …’ and then some woman from the office upstairs comes through:

      “Sonymumble Mumblesoftlywhispernumber irmitfallaffle.” Then the tone alters: “Customers are reminded that on errrwhirr a djangory, ifftriueddich mumble mumble …” ding from the till “take advantage today. Don’t miss out.”

      I nearly asked a fellow customer: “Should we identify where these speakers are and take em out one by one?” But in the current climate …..

        I can never understand voices when amplified. Often even when not amplified.

        Talking to fellow shoppers. Yeah, it’s imperative upon us to engage in such ways. Scare the kecks off em. Be that person who sits next to someone on the bus and dares to speak. Smile while commenting ever so very slightly inadvertently. Most folk are quite open to a chat, unless they need to remove their ear bud. That’s when you don’t bother. It’s an age thing. I thought that 65 is the new fifty, which was the new forty… you get my drift.
