Will code for food

As of yesterday (2016/11/29), I am unemployed. On the bright side, at least the monkey of having to justify my continued employment by taking those stupid MicroSoft certification tests every few years is off my back.

The volcano gods are angry!

Douglas Wilson: Babylon and the Bolshevik Buttercups
But surrounding the whole thing, there has always been a mysterious bipartisan consensus, one dictated by an imperious zeitgeist, promulgated by the entertainment complex and media, and studiously obeyed by all the politicians. This zeitgeist was enthusiastically pushed by the left and sullenly obeyed by the right, and the whole culture steadily followed after it. When it has made enough of an appearance to be given a name, it has been called political-correctness.

If you want to know what powers this zeitgeist has, look no further than the immediately honored demand—driven by hidden chthonic powers—that a hapless congressman from East Toad Flats (R-AR) be found guilty of a career-ending gaffeous blunder because someone at the state fair barbecue recorded him telling a blonde joke. The cry goes up in the village and into the volcano he goes.

So this brings us to the recent presidential election. A mistake that many are making with regard to all of this is that they are trying to interpret everything in terms of policy. Now as I said at the top, policy matters and the new president will have to institute particular policies. He will have to govern, in other words. ...

But don’t let that distract you from what is really going on. What is really going on is a gigantic collision between the insiders and the outsiders. Nothing is more obvious than that the decree went forth from the zeitgeist that Trump was to be thrown into the volcano, as so many before him had been, and the villagers refused.
In case Gentle Reader is unaware, Wilson was/is a NeverTrumper.

Genetic 'explanations' for human behavior

As I've mentioned in passing, I'm 59 years old. As with most older people, I can no longer focus properly on close work, such as when reading a book; no doubt most of this is due to age, but I expect that part of it is because I have spent most of my life staring at computer screens. Also, I understand that for most people, this inability to focus properly generally becomes a problem at about age 40. In my case, I began noticing it at around age 52 or 53 ... and, to this day, cheap (i.e. $1.50) reading glasses, at the lowest level (1.25) take care of the problem for me.

On the other hand, my mother needed glasses before age 30 and my father not long after. My twin sisters needed glasses from childhood. Our brother is somewhere in between (but closer to my condition that to the girls').

So, two human beings, both of whom had faulty vision from a relatively young age, produced four children (with three genetic profiles), two of whom (having a single genetic profile) had worse vision that either of the parents (*), and two of whom had better vision that either of them, and at least one of those has vision that is at least one or two standard deviations better than average.

So, given how useless looking at peoples' genes would be in telling one physical facts about their children, such as what the children's vision would be like, how does it even begin to make sense to "explain" human behavior in terms of genes, especially when one ignores culture to do so?

(*) My sisters had three children each, and only one of the six needed glasses as a child.

Taqiyya vs Truth

Kathy Shaidle: Two “Muslim headscarf victim” stories, one fake, one real
FAKE: Muslim woman claims Trump supporters pulled off her hijab, later admits she made up the story.

TRUE: Muslim girl takes headscarf off in shopping mall, other Muslims beat her up, send her to hospital.
"The media" will trumpet the first story ... and somehow forget to tell you it was a hoax; and they will never tell you the second story.

Meanwhile .... it's still the same story

Jihad Watch: Bataclan bars Eagles of Death Metal from reopening show at site of jihad massacre
The band Eagles of Death Metal was playing when the jihadis began their mass murder in the Bataclan, where they killed 89 people. But because Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes has suggested that “Muslim staff at the Bataclan were involved in the gun and suicide bomb attack there on November 13, 2015,” he has been barred. “They came, I threw them out — there are things you can’t forgive,” said Bataclan co-director Jules Frutos.
Indeed, "there are things you can’t forgive"; apparently, murdering your patrons isn't among those things.

Make America Slightly Better For At Least A Little While

Criticus Ferox at Rightly Considered: Attack Until We Crack
I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves. But let’s get real now. While Trump’s victory was a tremendous achievement, the situation remains extremely grim. The election results demonstrate that basically half of the current population of America is in the grips of the left, either as zealots or complacent followers. This is the product of years of indoctrination through every major sector of American culture – the institutions of education, the arts and entertainment sectors, and the news media – which are all firmly under the control of the left. This election doesn’t change that one iota. Unless the right figures out a way to take over those institutions – something they have never done and that no one is even seriously talking about – the historic American nation is doomed. Without accomplishing that as well as dealing with the demographic issues that will tip the electorate permanently to the left, it’s far from clear that Trump will even be able to win re-election in four years, let alone put America on some kind of path to greatness. We are not even close to making America great again. The accurate campaign slogan would have instead been: Make America Slightly Better For At Least A Little While. Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, does it? ...
Attack until we crack? No! until they do. And then attack some more.

As for separation, Hell no! This is *our* country; let's not surrender *any* of it to the leftists. They are insane, let them die in the outer darkness of their insanity.

The *reason* that for over the past century the left have been wining their culture war and destroying the historic American Nation is because the right have not been fighting back, but rather constantly retreating. Look: we rightists have been lying to ourselves, albeit with a different lie, just as much as the leftists have been lying to themselves. Their lie is: If we force everyone (except The Leaders, of course) to be slaves of The State (which is to say, The Leaders), then Utopia will arrive and everyone will be free. Our lie is: If we surrender just this one more time, then they will finally leave us alone and free to live as we see fit.

The Utopia the left's useful idiots think they want can never arrive until Christ rules directly. The peace of being left alone by leftist busybodies that we rightists want can never arrive so long as there is even one leftist in a position to impose his vision of himself as The Anointed upon anyone else.

If only there were some way

Every four years, scads of (generally washed-up) celebrities "threaten" us with the promise that if X (you know, the guy with the 'R' after his name) wins the election, they are going to abandon these United States.

And then, when he does, they never do.

If only there were some way to induce them to keep their promise.

Additional thought:

Notice that they *never* promise to flee to Mexico, which is full of Mexicans, but rather to Canada, which is full of white people. I guess they must be racists.
