Small sanity in Clown World

This ought to be common sense:

A Vermont Christian high school forfeited a girls basketball game because the opposing team had a transgender player, the head of school said.

Vicky Fogg, head of Mid Vermont Christian School, said the team decided not to participate "because we believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players."

Absolutely.


The Boomer is oblivious

The average annual income in my city is $40,000. After tax, that's $35,000.

The average house price is $750,000. Assuming that the average guy saves up $100,000 and then gets a $650,000 mortgage today, his monthly payment will be $4,000! Yeah, the mortgage is 137% of his monthly income.


Clown World will kill you

Discriminating against White or Asian applicants to increase the numbers of colored nurses and doctors? BRAVE! PROGRESSIVE! SO INCLUSIVE!

Parents discriminating against likely mediocre colored nurses and doctors and seeking out competent Whites or Asians for their health questions? LAYSISM! BIGOTED! CANCEL!


A very bad idea

And what happens when the stock price tanks? Amazon is already down ~50% from its all-time high. Amazon was down 90% after the dot com crash.

Will low wage employees of Amazon have to put up additional collateral or extra cash in a future downturn to keep their house? Combine that with inflation and high interest rates and you've got severe financial fragility.


Extremely inferior

Funny, the same applies to the oil-rich countries in the Middle East. The rulers have acquired insane amounts of wealth over the past century but if the Americans were to leave then the Arabs would be back to sand and camels.


Is this transitory?

Someone I know got a very sad McDonald's chicken burger combo late last year. Price? $15! That's now the baseline here in Canada. A dinner date at a restaurant can easily top $100.

The bizarre thing is that one doesn't even have to cook at home to save money. Rotisserie chicken at my local grocery store is often on sale for $8 and it tastes much better than expensive and atrocious fast food.


Kiwis make history

I was a little surprised when Ben Stokes enforced the follow on. Giving the bowlers a little rest and setting a mammoth target of 500 runs in the fourth innings would have been safer. Regardless, the Kiwis fought hard and flipped the result of the 2019 World Cup final.

1 Margin of New Zealand's win by runs in Wellington, the joint-narrowest win recorded in Test cricket. West Indies also won by one run against Australia in the 1993 Adelaide Test while defending a target of 186.

4 Instances of a team winning after following on in a Test match, including New Zealand's win against England in Wellington. All the previous instances came against Australia - twice by England (Sydney 1894 and Leeds 1981) and India in Kolkata in 2001.

Ben Stokes certainly didn't make a foolish decision.

0 Number of times England lost a Test match out of the 177 instances where they took a 200-plus runs first-innings lead before their defeat at the Basin Reserve. The previous highest first-innings lead resulting in a loss for England was 177 runs against Australia in 1961 at Old Trafford.

What a incredible game for Kane Williamson. He becomes the #1 scoring batsman from his country, beats England, and wins the Man of the Match award!


Know your place!

That famous system of White Supremacy in action:

Scott Adams looked at a poll of blacks and finally realized that too many of them are assholes. So, it's better to stay away from them. You see, the problem isn't that these blacks are assholes. The problem is that Adams pointed that out and reached the logical conclusion to simply not associate with them. Of course, the MSM doesn't have a concrete, logical rebuttal of this horrible LAAAYSISM!

So, they do what they've always done: CANCEL THE VERY BAD MAN!

Also, praise for the hyena:


Are you against love?

How about that slippery slope?

We went from gay tolerance, acceptance, and promotion to trans kids tolerance, acceptance, and promotion to now pedophile tolerance. Let's see how long it takes for the acceptance and promotion aspects.
