California, where insane people come from and go to. Robert wrote about some news from California that’s got “hammer and sickle” all over it:

The state of California is implementing full Marxism before our very eyes under the guise of “equity.” And so now there can be no possible doubt if there ever was for anyone: instituting Communism has been what “equity” initiatives have been about all along. Now three of its most powerful utility companies are saying that they’re going to charge based not on how much of their product was used, but on how much money the user makes.

In simpler times, if you bought something, you paid for it. Rich or poor, tall or short, black or white, female or male, wise or foolish, everyone paid the same amount for a product. But in our more enlightened era, we know how unjust that really is. It deprives the poor of access to vital goods and services, and that injustice must be redressed.

That’s what Communism is all about, at least in theory: leveling out economic differences between people by confiscating earnings from the rich and awarding them to those who have less.

I'm just waiting to see who ends up filing a lawsuit against these companies and in which court.

Friends don't let their friend's children end up in Hollywood, or else they end up saying stupid stuff like this: Harry Potter Thinks We Need to ‘Trust Kids’ When They Say They Want to Change Gender

Emma Watson has been stupid, now Daniel Radcliffe. I haven't seen Rupert Grint say much, although I admit I haven't been looking.

Counting down until the media goes crazy about all the increases in mass shootings:

Brutal Mass Shooting in Alabama, Soon to Be Memory-Holed, Leaves Four Dead, 20 Injured

The article notes, "Gun Violence Archive lists 163 mass shootings thus far this year. What you won’t see from the mainstream media — but you will read here because I post it as often as I can — there have also been at least 306 defensive shootings in the same time frame."

Can anyone explain the following story to me? There are a lot of moving parts, and this is only now starting to bubble up in the news. 

It’s Time to Pay Attention to the Arrest of Miles Guo and the Throngs of Chinese Nationals Who Are Protesting for His Release

It connects to the story a few weeks ago of Leonardo DiCaprio as a witness in a court case.

Okay, this is good news and gives me at least some hope that the youth aren't all braindead:

Glenn Greenwald shows how NYT and WaPo write ‘whatever the (Deep) State wants’ in DAMNING thread

Sundance has said for a long time that each news organization aligns with a particular department in Washington: Pentagon, CIA, FBI, State Department. He hasn't been wrong so far.

Good morning.

Ah, well... SpaceSex (hee hee hee) StarShip launch has been scrubbed for today, due to a "pressurization issue".  Better luck... tomorrow?

At least 48 hours. 

Maybe I'll get to watch it on a large screen at work.

Hearing the delicate coverage on NPR yesterday (yes, I'm a masochist), I could already tell, "this event is going to wind up being classified as DFN (Doesn't Fit the Narrative), and will be dropped quickly".

Yeah, not exactly.  Greenwald does a lot of valuable work, but is stretching quite a lot in his inferences there, IMHO.

From the same article:

It’s all a ruse to take your guns. Leftists will gladly sacrifice thousands of lives to disarm We the People.

From yesterday's thread

Black Lives Matter

Crime Killed a Quarter of a Million Black People.

Black people are disproportionately affected by crime. Pro-crime policies led to the deaths of an additional 2,244 black people in 2020. According to a Johns Hopkins report, “in 2020, one out of every 1,000 young black males (15–34) was shot and killed” and, “more than half of all black teens (15–19) who died in 2020—a staggering 52%—were killed by gun violence.”

Oh, and vehicle collisions are racists.

"It’s something that deserves more attention, which is why I’m working to bring more attention to it. We have a crisis when it comes to roadway fatalities in America. We lose about 40,000 people every year. It’s a level that is comparable to gun violence. And we see a lot of racial disparities. Black and Brown Americans, tribal citizens and rural residents are much more likely to lose their lives whether it’s in a car or as a pedestrian being hit by a car," Buttigieg said.

Since punctuality, work ethic etc... are racist, I am going to assume that obey traffic laws are also racist.

And despite the media's love for anniversaries, not a single story has been written about this one.

It think that's a bit of an overstatement.  Under-covered, perhaps?  Yes.  And in fairness, I did hear NPR referencing it (with no mention of the bombers' motives, of course.)

I know I saw a couple of stories, but in PJM, Jihad Watch, and Frontpagemag. Maybe Fox
