Teh Squeaky Wheel
Humpy Hap Day, GN!
Wonder if that parking enforcement beastie has qualified immunity…
I’m stunned to read that Dr. Seuss is being cancelled. SackO’SugarK noticed last night that the price of his newly-banned books are already going up. How long until “Green Eggs & Ham” is construed as discriminatory to Muslims and rewritten as “Green Eggs & Lamb”?

Maaaan…what would they be doing to that racist, sexist sumbitch Captain Kangaroo if he were still on the air?
I have to keep reminding myself that other people are the ones taking crazy pills, not me. (That’s not working too well.)
There’s a lot more crazy people out there than we ever imagined, Fatwa.
As I recall, Captain Kangaroo had Blond hair, blue eyes, and even a mustache. That’s pretty racist by today’s standards.
Also, as much as I love Dr. Seuss, he was kind of a moonbat. So the left eating its own again. Pretty much the normal state of things.
Good morning, GN -- happy Wednesday, Fatwa.
Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
The Babylon Bee had a good take-down of the Cancel Seuss movement. I read a comment yesterday that the effort really began when the former First Lady donated a carp-tonne of Dr. Seuss books to schools ahead of Read Across America day in 2019.
The logic is confusing. Hollywood and others proclaim that violent movies or violent video games do not lead to increases in violent actions, per science, but somehow unflattering or even overtly racist books and words are problematic. At least when they come from white people.
It’s a puzzler.
Hi, Sven and Paddy!
Ain’t that the truth?
Read a couple of days ago that some moron in Chicago thinks the way to solve their huge uptick in carjackings is to ban the sale of Grand Theft Auto to minors. It’s gotten so bad that many gas stations are promoting hours where they have armed security on their premises.
I hate what’s happened to my birth city. Not to mention my former homes of S.F. and L.A. And even Cleveland Heights. I wonder if there’s a common link?
Did they finish the electrical work on your street yesterday?
They did. Are they done with it? Don’t know. One of the guys said they are only replacing the poles that they are told to replace even if some others ought to be replaced. He commented that some of the poles are hollowed out at the top due to weather and bugs, but they are only replacing the crossbeam. And that the oak trees need to be trimmed, but they don’t have permission to do that.
Not much of a warm and fuzzy feeling.
I wonder if there’s a common link?
Could that link be that you left?
I wonder if they should make teachers do this as well?
“The “show me your papers” program, “developed with support from Microsoft, generates a unique QR code for each student and staff member that authorizes entry to a specific Los Angeles Unified location for that day only, as long as the individual receives a negative test result for COVID, shows no symptoms and has a temperature under 100 degrees,” LAUSD said. “Upon an individual’s arrival to a campus, their QR code is scanned by a Los Angeles Unified school site leader who takes the individual’s temperature.”
I wonder if they should make teachers do this as well?
As it stands, teachers will be required to go through this program.
Oh, and students who refuse to participate won’t be allowed to return to school and will have to continue online learning.
If I had read the article more thoroughly, I would have picked up on the “staff members” mention. Sheesh.
How do you run two separate teaching methodologies, remote and onsite, at the same time?
Saw some of Cuomo’s press conference. He’s quite contrite but was unaware that his sexual harassment was actually sexually harassment -- that’s just the way he’s been, meant nothing by it, but now he knows it’s wrong. And no, he isn’t resigning, and probably no, he didn’t kill anybody.
It’s amazing that for the last 20 years or so, politicians and leftists like him have been passing, lecturing, and promoting legislation to stop the scourge of sexual harassment and yet have no idea 1) what their new rules are, and 2) that it applies to them as well.

Ya know, the last time I stuck my hand down some woman’s blouse, I didn’t mean anything by it either. I got yer back, Andy. Say, do you know who’s running Epstein’s travel service these days?

I think I’m pretty boring compared to you guys. Especially lately.
I got through the route fairly early. Didn’t dilly-dally (much.) Went right to sleep. Woke up at about 9:30am (because I drink so much diet coke that I always wake up about every three hours)
Well, since I was awake, I decided to drive to Cottonwood and get my medical tests and then make a Dr.’s appointment. Which I did. The only lab I can use had its Sedona location close, so I have to go to Cottonwood.
Anyway, once that was done, I went shopping for a few things, bought a bunch of chicken strips, and me and a friend had lunch and hung out for an hour or so.
Then I went home. Then I started writing this. Now, I’m just finishing this up.
Hold my beer, Dv8.
My excitement for the day was writing copying a bit of VBA code into an Excel spreadsheet to copy some data from one sheet of a workbook to another. I found a youtube video where the guy did what I needed and modified to suit. I didn’t have the time to look up all of the commands and syntax to figure out why he did what he did -- which bothers me -- but there it is.
If we want to look for excitement, it’s on Mac and Fatwa’s shoulders.
Excitement? I am the Prig. Excitement is not in the thuktun of the Prig Fithp.
I heard that Biden has pushed Texans even lower on the Americn scale of goodness from “deplorables” to “Neanderthals.” Nicely done.
I do hope that Texas has pulled back all its National Guardsman from around DC especially since the local seem intent on poisoning them.
I saw some pictures of that raw chicken they were serving the Guardsmen, and heard the boxes of “hot” meals were labeled “good for 4 hours”. Yeah, I want my raw chicken sitting in the food safety danger zone for multiple hours.
