Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove and The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

No one thing in particular jumps out this Monday morning, so let’s have a links compendium with some comments.

In France, yellow-vest protestors continue to protest… well, just about everything.  The gist of their argument seems to be “we want more Free Shit, and we want other people to pay for it.”

Princess Spreading Bull has launched her 2020 Presidential bid.  This is a Quixotic quest if there ever was one; even her fellow Democrats are getting to be embarrassed by her serial dissembling over her background.

Portland, Oregon averages a 911 call every fifteen minutes – about homeless people.  Most of these aren’t really emergencies and should be called in to the regular non-emergency dispatch line, granted.  But Portland has in the past had policies like “no-turnaway” shelters, which has drawn itinerants to that city – and this is the predictable result.

Single-family zoning is now racist.  Who knew?  This is so facepalm-worthy it’s not even funny.  When everything is racist, nothing is racist, but that little truism is lost on these people.

Robert Stacy McCain chronicles the continuing downward slide of our Ivy League schools.  Why are these people so angry?

Our good friend Jillian Becker presents “Prophetess: A Cautionary Tale.”  Well worth the read.  Granted predictions are very difficult, especially when they’re about the future.

On that note, we return you to your Monday, already in progress.
