Yep. There is only one way to combat racism, and that is to quit participating in it and judge each individual by their behavior / character. EVERY time one group is given favor based solely on the melanin content of their skin or their group identity, racism occurs. I understand the inclination to try and right past wrongs by favoring one group over another, but as our mothers tried to teach us, two wrongs don't make a right.

I must admit I'm eager to see what you might write that could keep me from continuing to read your work?

Really excellent. Thanks.

I'm not planning of flying ever again, if I can help it. I will not die due to DIE. Nor will I die from them having a heart attack while flying due to the clot shot.

I was looking through job postings for technical program management positions ( requiring domain training and experience) on LinkedIn the other day and what struck me was after the job position description paragraph there was an equal length paragraph stating (paraphrasing for brevity) “studies have shown that certain minorities and other groups do not apply if they do not meet every qualification requirement. You are encouraged to apply anyway. “ This was followed by a paragraph twice as long about (paraphrasing again) “we don’t discriminate against (fill in the blank) and hire based on merit. “ This for a $150K+ job.

We are so fucked.

The Good Citizen knows his constituents, but only kinda sorta: As regards being insulted/offended/etc., I want the other point of view and to not visit an echo chamber where my comfy zone isn't threatened. I'll still peruse Drudge just to ascertain that my arteries are pressurized and for a cheap laugh as well; NYT for a max dosage.

I used to fly a lot, primarily on business. No mas. I'd rather drive my Accord over a thousand miles of broken glass without a working jack than put up with the horrors of TSA mouth-breathers plus the general discomfort of the entire airline/airport experience.

You keep writing and I'll keep on reading.

Deal?

They want normal people to stop traveling, in general. "15 minute cities" and all that. What better way than to make flying so dangerous that you'll be too afraid to risk it?

It gives a second meaning to the phrase "They have a screw loose"... This would be funny if it wasn't so damn serious. And uhm, it will be a cold day in hell before you can offend me. Then again, I am a heterosexual white male. This would be funny...

And fren Elon is not right. Soon as an airplane hits the ground nose first they'll blame it on an unsuspecting ghuwait passenger. Ideology before reasoning, that's what it is.

Peregrin Axiom of Life #1: Progs f@<k up everything they touch.

I have to say when I first saw that fat Ashleigh human, my eyeballs about exploded. I just thank the Lord I will never have to pretend to kow-tow to a woke POS like her/xir. If I did, security would escort me to the door.

The only personal solution is to not live anywhere these "people", and not frequent establishments that wear DEI/ESG on their sleve.

Spot on. We too have been ostracised by family and friends for daring to even question the narrative. Don't despair!

Be the truth seeker.

When will we just go back to being people (human beings) and judged upon our merit?

Love this!!! I'll walk, if it takes me a year to get there. I don't know how well this plan is working to get people to stop flying. So bazar the various methods they concoct to kill people. But they gotta make money doing it no matter what. Fear --if they even feel it-- doesn't seem to stop anyone from risking their life just to take a trip somewhere --I know, I know people have "jobs" that compel them too. I quit flying many years ago because of invasion of my person and property (the radiation wands, which were a joke) and so much "ugly". I had to get a card from my dr. to show I had artificial hips to stop them. After that I quit.

I have no plans to stop reading your essays. I was getting ready to close my computer until I saw your entry in my email, couldn't wait to read it. Foo Fighter video so realistic!

Shuck-a-roonies...I thought DEI was a new 3 letter government agency. I don't know what the letters stand for just like ESG or GSE or EGS or even LQBTIOU or whatever. I couldn't care less. WOKE = DEATH. Therefore, I avoid all wokeness.

One can never be offended by anyone or anything else if they are grounded by awareness and presence of thought. If you are offended by something, then that means you have allowed your silly ego and arrogance to preclude the real self.

You are never what any wokie says you are or what any government wonkers claim you to be. These are people lost to their true selves and therefore offer no validity for defining anyone.

Woke Supremacy is the enemy of Reason. Woke is a psychological condition that gives rise to the politics of Woke Supremacy. DEI is a cudgel to enforce compliance with a disruptive ideology that is being used to emasculate the populace in preparation for authoritarian rule. “The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all.”
