    Gettysburg is a small Pennsylvania town with a small school district, a small seminary, and a small college surrounded by apple orchards. It is best known for the most important battle of the American Civil War and the location of Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech. ... Decline It is hard to say exactly when or how, but this community, which was built around a seminary, a Bible college, and then a battle, slowly turned secular. ...While the ghost industry was on the rise and the Christmas nativity was in decline, the seminary was in a nosedive. The Gettysburg Seminary, built...
  • ‘Wokeness’ Used to Be Amusingly Eccentric – Now It’s an Authoritarian Bid to Re-Write the History of Western Civilisation

    The Woke want us to eradicate our culture as we know it and replace it with a simplistic worldview in which everyone is either an Oppressor or the Oppressed. “We reject woke ideology. We will never ever surrender to the woke agenda. Florida is where woke comes to die.” So said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis when he won a thumping majority in the mid-term elections. That political use of the term “woke” still has many Australians puzzled.

    “In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” the group of scientists amidst the ongoing outbreak. “We therefore believe that a nomenclature that is neutral, non-discriminatory and non-stigmitizing [sic] will be more appropriate for the global health community,” continues the paper before proposing “hMPXV” as a placeholder.

    If 2020 renewed calls for racial equality as Black Lives Matter protests exploded throughout Europe, 2021 brought in the backlash as parts of the political establishment waged a so-called "war against woke." Stripped of its original meaning of a person being awake to progressive issues, "woke" has been appropriated from the Black vernacular and turned into a political lightning rod in the West's culture wars. It is now used pejoratively by lawmakers and pundits from both left and right, criticizing the perceived excesses of social and racial justice movements. The politicization of the word, which has seen degrees of success...

    So I find out today I've been cancelled by "neighborly" NextDoor. This is absurd - and perhaps I was "reported" (snitched) by the last jerk I replied to last week. He was telling everyone how there aren't many of us (around here - indeed) and we're just posting alot (not true) and WE SHOULD REPORT THEM AND GET THEM BANNED. I gave him a piece of my mind in public. That goes for ND - and FB, and YT also.

    Vice President Kamala Harris promoted government spending on charging stations for electric vehicles on Monday, demonstrating the use of a car charger herself. The vice president visited a car charging maintenance facility in Prince George’s County, Maryland outside of Washington, DC, to promote the use of electric vehicles. During her visit, she asked if she could plug in one of the electric cars to see how it worked. After plugging it in, she commented on the difference between an electric charger and a gas pump. “There’s no sound or fume,” she said, standing by the car holding the plug into...

    I screwed up. I usually run “Best Christmas Ads” on the Sunday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday but simply forgot this year. Possibly because nobody makes really good Christmas ads anymore. “Woke” and Christmas just doesn’t seem a natural pairing, but still the agencies try; producing such fare as this John Lewis and Partners commercial that morphs the now mandatory inter-racial hook-up into an inter-species encounter where an albino alien meets up with a little earthbound gingerbread man. Screenshot from John Lewis and Partners Christmas 2021 adNow John Lewis is a British company, but even the Brits seem to...

    Universities and corporations are desperate to hire people whose sole job is to tell you how racist you are. In a recent discussion about the "wokeness" situation in American universities, Prof. Kimberly Johnson presented a table showing the salary compensation data for DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) personnel at Michigan State University (MSU) in 2018–2019. It contains 82 full-time positions ranging from a modest $42,000 salary for the administrative assistant to $408,000 for chief diversity officer (that's just above the salary of the POTUS, at $400,000). The total annual compensation for DEI staff at MSU is $10.6 million. Isn't that too...

    Brian May voiced concerns over the cancel culture movement, saying he believed some changes to society were being made “without thinking of the long-term consequences.” The guitarist illustrated his point by imagining a scenario of Queen trying to find success in the modern world. “I’m sure… we would be forced to have people of different colours and different sexes and a trans person – but life doesn't have to be like that,” May told the U.K.’s ITV network (via multiple sources). “We can be separate and different. Our generation made a lot of mistake, but not everybody in our generation...

    I discovered this series titled “What the Progressive Socialist Liberals Have in Store for Conservatives” only yesterday, and I read all six parts in a row non-stop. This is a masters-degree-level course on the history and lessons of government-sponsored genocide. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Some of the many embedded images are gut-wrenching, but this lecture series does not hold back any punches. The hosting website permits you to save these lectures as PDF files, and I recommend that you do so. The powers-that-be in the coming years will not want people to be armed with this knowledge.

    How are we human beings going to be able to kick the butts of COVID creatures infinitesimally smaller than we are? Or are we going to be like Goliath, who fell to the Lilliputian David? It all depends upon whether we embrace science or continue to denigrate it. The powers that be are continually and boringly claiming to be the one side that embraces this discipline, while the other denounces it. Nothing can be further from the truth. What then are the relevant characteristics of the scientific method? First and foremost, we must hear from all sides in any scientific...

    Seinfeld is making waves again because of its arrival on the Netflix streaming platform. The classic ’90s show has spent some time in limbo after being a fixture on Hulu for a few years, but now fans can watch the show about nothing in all its glory.Seinfeld was easily my favorite show as a kid, and while it may have pushed some boundaries as to what topics were suitable for prime time television, it was widely lauded for the clever storylines that often took the mundane and made it funny. One episode, for example, involves the cast waiting for a...

    Actor James Woods rebuked the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for telling Americans what they should, and shouldn’t say, instead of focusing its attention on the coronavirus pandemic. In a tweet on Friday, the CDC asked Americans “Are you using #inclusive language” and directed them to a webpage titled, “Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities.” “You nitwits don’t have better things to do in the middle of a PANDEMIC??!!” actor James Woods replied. The CDC webpage lists words and expressions that it says should not be spoken and provides suggested replacements that “represent an ongoing shift toward...
