The baffling reason many millennials don’t eat cereal
Almost 40 percent of the millennials surveyed by Mintel for its 2015 report said cereal was an inconvenient breakfast choice because they had to clean up after eating it.

What's all this la razor stuff?


People at the Liquor Store are Always asking ..
What's all this razor stuff and suing Trump about?

  • What is La Raza (The Race) in U.S politics?
 La Raza = Mexican political activism.  Many La Razaistos subscribe to the notion that California, Texas, and New Mexico are property stolen by the United States, and advocate  repossessing that land by force, if necessary.

"Imagine the outcry if white attorneys from Mississippi  started a a legal association 'The Race'  with the stated mission to promote the interest of white, Southern communities.
  • Justice Sotomayor has given several speeches about the importance of diversity. But her 2001 remarks at Berkeley, which were published by the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal, went further, asserting that judges’ identities will affect legal outcomes. A Judge’s View of Judging Is on the Record
  • What is the complaint filed against Trump U? Harvard Business School (Read Between the Lines)
A handful of students sued Trump U Harvard Business School in 2010, alleging  his Trump  the  school  was a sham full of misleading promises. The students said in a class-action lawsuit that they had paid as much as $35,000 to learn secrets to real estate success getting rich.

According to the complaint filed in San Diego federal court, they were encouraged to sign up for more expensive levels of instruction, which were to include personal mentoring by experts “handpicked” by Trump U Harvard. But instead, they say, the seminars were more like infomercials.

The lawsuit alleges that the for-profit university’s promises that advanced students could make tens of thousands of dollars each month were bogus, and that the school instead left many in debt.  Harvard disagreed with allegations that the program was worthless.

So, basically, Democrats and the Republican elite are sacred to death that Trump will become president and:  enforce legislated  immigration law; deport illegals, stop Muslem immigration, name constitutionalists  to the courts, and wish people a Merry Christmas. Which says it all.



Bill Nye: Liar? Or Idiot?

GREEN NAZIS                                    

There is a saying in the world of science that if scientific facts do not support your arguments then stop shouting. It is thus a waste of time to appeal to “scientism” or to rely on popular spokespersons like Al Gore or Bill Nye to make it look otherwise. (WUWT)

Bill Nye is rallying a "small minority" group of Americans to get out and vote — the fraction of society he says embraces "critical thinking over baseless anecdotes."

Nye, who became a household name in the 1990s with his popular show "Bill Nye the Science Guy," has been active this election season criticizing Republican presidential candidates who doubt the dangers of global warming. Most scientists blame carbon emissions, largely from burning fossil fuels, for driving manmade climate change.

Nye has antagonized Republicans in recent years by allying himself with President Obama and dismissing those who have questions about man's contributions to global warming as "deniers."

Speaking to a gathering of non-religious believers on the Mall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Nye stressed the importance of taking the environment and climate into account at the ballot box in November. [Full Story]

S'like if the Left used (the late) Mr. Rogers' celebrity with kids  to endorse pedophilia.  Here, courtesy of Anthony Watts, your rebuttal.

George Will on the Perpetually Offened

Beating Dead Horses Because
They Aren't Really Dead
should be, but they ain't


How indignant can progressives make themselves? There’s a real competition going on. And it’s sweeping the nation: progressive vs. progressive competing to see who can most flamboyantly claim to be offended; to proclaim that their feelings have been hurt; or that their sensitivities have been rubbed raw; or their serenity disturbed; or their composure discombobulated, by something that someone has said. Or by something they have seen. Such as a Confederate flag or a building named after Woodrow Wilson.

But, actually, I think progressives are not sufficiently imaginative. There are many more things they could be indignant about. Starting with where I live—Washington, D.C.

The Washington Post newspaper is -- if it will pardon the expression -- on the warpath against the name of the Washington Redskins football team. The paper says the name is racist, insulting, demeaning, insensitive, and so on. But the Washington Post takes its name from its city…which is named for George Washington, who was not only a slave owner; he was a tobacco farmer, which some progressives probably think is almost as awful.

Surely the Post should change its name--and should demand that the nation's capital be renamed. Perhaps as Eleanor Roosevelt City. Obviously it cannot be named for her husband -- he who ordered the internment in concentration camps of 117,000 persons of Japanese descent, two-thirds of whom were native-born American citizens.

And there are hundreds of other towns, counties, parks, and schools named for Washington. Such as Washington and Lee University. Good grief: The name is double hate speech: Robert E. Lee actually commanded the Confederate Army.

Washington is not the only name progressives should scrutinize. The word "Oklahoma" is a compound of two words from the Choctaw language—words meaning "red" and "people." If it is intolerable to have a football team named "Redskins," it must be worse to have a state named "Red People.” But let's get back to cleansing America of all mentions of historic figures who were less than perfect progressives.

On the Tidal Basin in Washington there is a memorial for the slave-owning Thomas Jefferson. This memorial should have a "trigger warning" carved into its marble.

Jacksonville, Florida, and Jackson, Mississippi, and many other places and things, are named for Andrew Jackson, the tormentor of Native Americans. All must be renamed for someone who was saintly, as progressives understand saintliness.

And speaking of saints:

Surely good progressives are traumatized by the names of St. Louis, St. Petersburg, San Diego, San Antonio—not to mention Corpus Christie.

Progressives like it when courts rule that non-denominational prayers at high school graduations violate the separation of church and state. Why, then, don't they consider it a constitutional outrage that there are cities named for religious figures? Including Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco. That city is—if progressives will pardon the expression—the Vatican of American progressivism.

Progressives should demand that all such cities be renamed for progressive saints. Tony Bennett could sing, "I left my heart in Nancy Pelosi City." Or we could give these places names that give no offense because they have no meaning. 

Joseph Knippenberg is an American rarity—a sensible professor. His droll suggestion is that we spare progressives from discomfort by giving cities and buildings the kind of meaningless names that are given to car models—names such as Acura and Elantra and Sentra.

And what about the state flag of hyper-progressive Massachusetts? Its flag depicts a Native American holding—brace yourself—a bow and arrow. A weapon. Surely progressivism's sensitivity police cannot permit this depiction. It reinforces the hurtful stereotype of Native Americans as less than perfectly peaceful people.

Minnesota, too, should hang its head in shame. Its state seal depicts a pioneer tilling a field, and a Native American riding away -- and carrying a spear. Any progressive can see that this seal conveys multiple racial slurs. The spear—another weapon, another stereotype of Native Americans as violent. The Native American, riding away, is stigmatized as nomadic, hence unproductive. Whereas the farmer, who is white, is industrious. So, the seal communicates subliminal slander—the coded message of white superiority. Who knew that Minnesotans, who have voted Democratic in ten consecutive elections since 1972, embrace white supremacy?

I could go on, but you get the picture. Still, you should feel sorry for the progressive sensitivity enforcers. Those who constantly find reason to take offense are rarely happy people.

The problem, however, is that such people make almost everyone else miserable, too.

I’m George Will for Prager University.

It's been a long time since I saw George Will be George Will, and not an accommodating, too polite for words panel member on Sunday morning.  Of course, I stopped watching ... what's that?  He left This Week With George Stephanopoulos and went to FOX?  Maybe I'll tune in. Hey, I can't watch everything, only comment on it.

Today's Fun Idea .. If you're not 85.
