·        Anyone willing to do a little reading can quickly see through the unadulterated bull feces as people like Bernie and Lieawatha try to hold out the Nordic nations as bastions of successful socialist practices. Paul Mirengoff does a thorough job in pointing out their errors. It’s worth reading so you can quickly debunk the argument of anyone who tries to use the dopeler effect on you. Unfortunately, most of the practitioners of using the Dopeler Effect are surrounded by an impenetrable Bozone Layer, e.g. AOC.

·        In one of the more ridiculous protests I’ve ever seen, some employees at Wayfair are staging a walk-out over the fact that the company sold $200,000 worth of mattresses to Baptist Children’s Family Services to furnish a detention center for illegal immigrants. My advice is to fire every one of them and move their operations to Tennessee or Texas.

·        “Urban Love” as a defense for rape. The suspect told the judge that he wouldn’t understand it. Don’t think anyone else will, either. He’s looking at some Urban Jail Time.

·        Herbert Meyer, RIP. You may not know his name, but he wrote a prescient memo in 1983 laying out how we were going to win the Cold War. He made sure it would get to Reagan by sending it to his boss William Casey, knowing Casey would pass it on. Some of the deep state denizens were very upset and subsequently tried to get Herb fired from the CIA.

·        Wow! A new chapter in the annals of stupidity and poor government. In case you have any doubt that California is on its way, if not already there, to third world status, you need to see this video from their governor, which could almost be satire. He’s put out a video on how to obstruct ICE from deporting illegal aliens. I feel sorry for my California friends. There are apparently just not enough intelligent voters to keep idiots like this from getting elected.

·        The Democratic Presidential Clown Car debates start tonight. Here’s the lineup for the first debate.   

Wednesday: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.); former HUD Secretary Julián Castro; former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.); Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii); Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.); Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.); former Rep. Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke (D-Texas); Rep. Tim Ryan (R-Ohio); and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

·        A 17-year old Scottish teen was kicked out of class for stating that there are only two genders and suspended for three weeks. He was called back in by his teacher for a discussion of his transgression and taped the exchange.

·        Do we really want to fund an organization whose aim is to indoctrinate children with their liberal point of view on climate change and gender? I would argue not. Anyone who listens NPR or PBS is well aware of their bias. PBS recently aired an episode of the children’s show Arthur featuring, and celebrating, same-sex marriage. Adults are capable of making up their own minds, but indoctrinating children at an early age is not something I condone.

·        This woman is quite obviously unbalanced, but that didn’t keep CNN from trying to milk her for some anti-Trump footage. It might have backfired on them, as they quickly cut to an ad break when she called rape “sexy’. Upon closer examination, the TDS crowd seems to be having second thoughts. She is also on record as saying that women love the idea of a man with a big club dragging them into a cave. You just can’t make this stuff up.

·        I remember when Al Gore told us snow was a thing of the past. Colorado’s snowpack is 40 times normal after a rare summer solstice dump.

·        I’ve commented on this before. Doctors are terrified of being targeted by authorities for prescribing opiods and pharmacies are arbitrarily restricting prescriptions. It’s at the point where those who actually need and have a legitimate reason for taking them are being affected. I experienced this when I had surgery and the pharmacy would only fill a three-day supply.

·        Good, very good! More Americans than ever are saying illegal immigration is our most important problem. Inaction should cost some politicians their jobs in 2020. I vote for “Border Crisis Denier” to replace global warming denier as the choice pejorative. Here is a list. Remember it in 2020.

·        I’ll end today’s edition with this faux commencement address. Neal Boortz always wished he had been invited to give a commencement address to a group of graduating college students. The last straw was when a Northeast college invited Kermit the Frog to speak at a commencement. Neal wrote this address that he had never been invited to deliver. I wish he could give it for real. You don’t see highly successful people clocking out of the office every afternoon at five. The losers are the ones caught up in that afternoon rush hour. The winners drive home in the dark.
