Happy Evul Kitteh Wednesday, GN!

Nice to see that at least a few fellow American Jooos are a tich concerned about the growing tolerance for antisemitism in the good ol’ Democrat party:

Perhaps a few of them might even come around on the 2A after awhile. Baby steps…

Me and Mrs Sven made it to the Reagan Library to see Ben Shapiro yesterday. Big crowd for his lecture and book signing, but unfortunately the event was held in the Air Force One pavilion and the acoustics were awful -- hard to hear. He was mostly promoting his new book and with a friendly audience, somewhat less animated than he can be. Entertaining, though.

OK, I agree with this: Beto: ‘The Decision To Run Someone Over Should Be Between A Driver And His Car’

Happy Vernal Equinox Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Sven -- glad you enjoyed your trip to the Reagan Library; sorry the acoustics were so bad.

Fatwa -- let’s hope the Jexodus is real, massive, and already begun.

Hi, Paddy!

Here’s a question to the nation: any preference between Uber and Lyft? I’ve never used either and figure to keep up with the younger folks I should at least give one a try.

I don’t know that there is much, if any, difference between the two.

Speaking of kids, great article on young IT professionals feeling old at age 30. A New Luxury Retreat Caters to Elderly Workers in Tech (Ages 30 and Up) https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/04/technology/modern-elder-resort-silicon-valley-ageism.html

EL PESCADERO, Mexico — At a luxury resort in Baja California Sur, everyone was recovering from a long day sharing how hard it felt to be getting older.

Some of the participants walked pensively along the Pacific Coast at sunset. Others read from the resort bookshelf, choosing from sections labeled: “What can death teach me about life?” and “What are the unexpected pleasures of aging?”

The next day, the group would place stickers with ageist slurs all over their chests, arms and faces, and then hurl the stickers into a fire. Later, there would be healing sessions focused on intergenerational collaboration and accepting mortality.

That some of those on retreat were in their 30s and 40s did not strike them as odd.

I wonder if any of those “old-timers” had enough self-awareness to recall the ageism that they, themselves, had propagated?

Springtime, Mac. Although it’s hardly Spring without kittens. Sniff.

A friend’s company -- a fairly large international corporation -- came out in favor of Pelosi’s Equality Act that adds gender identity and such to the list of protected classes that cannot be discriminated against per the Civil Rights Act. They posted their position on the company’s bulletin board and invited comments from employees. All comments include the commenter’s name -- nothing is anonymous.

So 90% of the comments so far are praising the company and saying how wonderful it is -- a small number have voiced religious and commonsense objections to the Act -- from what my friend said, dissenting opinions have been factual and unoffensive in tone.

I told him this was one of the stupider corporate decisions I’ve ever heard of -- do they really not think that dissenters are not going to be targeted for retaliation either by management or fellow employees for publicly opposing the LGBTQRST movement?

Or perhaps this was the company’s intention all along -- to identify those that won’t get on board with another leftie initiative?

Maybe they’re just trying to identify the group that does not have the common sense to avoid putting their name to a controversial comment.

I know, Paddy, I know. I hate to think that voicing a respectful disagreement gets you on a list, but in today’s environment…

Been listening to these guys today -- wondering how Atlanta thinks of them.
