Randoland is a Twitter account which details the spending on those gigantic bills they pass out Congress. Example:
The Department of Health and Human Services awarded $1.4 million to Florida State University for a CRT-related program called “TRANSFORMING HEALTH EQUITY RESEARCH IN INTEGRATED PRIMARY CARE: ANTIRACISM AS A DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION”
This is, of course, complete drivel. It is make-work and a complete waste of money – but only from our perspective. From the Left’s perspective, it is money well spent.
You see, what the Left gets out of this is yet more propaganda pushing their views and people with a vested interest in keeping it all going. After all, $1.4 million goes pretty fast. Next year or the year after, the people studying anti-racism as a disruptive innovation will either have to get a grant to provide more anti-racism or they’ll have to get a job. Guess what they’ll choose? And you can rely on it that if people are paid to fight racism they will never run out of racism to fight.
Knock on benefits for the Left here are donations (the people getting these grants will want to keep Democrats in office) and conversion…actual or feigned (and it doesn’t matter to the Democrats which it is: both are just fine): the more this stuff is out there, the more people feel like they have to go along with it. And yet others just decide to get in on the payday and find some racism of their own to fight against.
And this is a huge problem for us – there is so much money flowing out of government and into Leftist hands that we’re a bit overwhelmed. How can we compete with an institution which passes out trillions of dollars, almost entirely un-audited?
The answer is that we can’t. So, we must get in on the act.
It will prove impossible – at least any time soon – to get the Congressional GOP on board with cutting this kind of spending. But I do believe we can get them on board with spending money on us. Sure, I know: long term getting rid of the spending is best. But that’s a pipe dream at present…so, lets stick our hand out. Let’s provide millions of dollars for Conservative studies and programs (which would have the benefit of being something useful). A few million for lesbian poetry reading here, a few million for a laudatory biopic of Pinochet there. See where I’m going? The reason we have gay Superman is because we’re paying for it – so lets pay for a Superman who b*** slaps Commies. Guess which will be more popular, anyway?
That train derailment in Ohio has picked up the hashtag #OhioChernobyl – which does seem a little melodramatic to me. That is, I don’t think its as bad as some are claiming. On the other hand, it is clearly pretty bad. And it is also a tremendously telegenic disaster…it is the sort of thing which would get eyeballs glues to screens. But nobody is covering. Not in any big sense. Some people hadn’t heard about until they saw a social media posts on it. This just shows you that what is in the news is carefully curated. I can only assume that a massive train derailment and chemical spill isn’t in the script right now and so it is just being ignored. And that begs the question: what other big stories are just being ignored because they don’t fit the script? That is, which don’t help Democrats advance their Narrative?
Team Pudding Brain has gotten trigger happy over balloons of late – I guess they got their focus group results on letting the first wander across the country and it wasn’t good. Personally, I just don’t know – I certainly can’t believe the government on it, nor the MSM (which is a mere arm of government). The stories of aliens are probably exaggerated.
The military is having trouble recruiting. The brass says its just because kids are afraid of getting hurt but we all know that’s a lie. Its about the woke stuff. The active strength of the Army is under 500,000. In a nation of 330 million and 4.3 million men coming of military age annually, there there is no possible way we can miss recruitment targets…unless the men just don’t want to serve. And why should anyone? You don’t get to spend nearly enough time getting trained. You have to kowtow to woke garbage all day long – and your career in the military can be ruined if you say something that someone claims offends them. Then, if you go get into a fight, you’re commanded by timeserving cowards who don’t care how many of you die, but who will see to it you’re charged for war crimes if you kill the enemy the wrong way. Screw that! I would never tell a kid to join up these days. And I’m sure plenty of fathers and grandfathers are telling the kids, “its not what is used to be; stay out”.
