    Flying SWA today at 5 eastern so got to watch local NYC news and political ads for mayor. Andrew Yang appears to be the Republican in that race. Let that sink in. God what a horrible city it is.

    Trump offered to help. She thumbed her nose. Let it burn.

    This is Liberalism. It's real. It's highly aggressive and it's getting worse. It's metastasizing into all our lives.

    Why the new Velma in Mindy Kaling's 'Scooby-Doo' has so many so upset

    Apparently Velma is a gay icon. It's unbelievable. It's a made-up cartoon!

    And they hate that Asian-Americans are seen as the ones who work hard and are smart.

    What we are dealing with here is this: Liberals have an incredible inferiority complex and are suffering from over the top levels of OCD. And they want their enormous hang-ups and reactions to be the new America.

    NO. THANKS.

    It's getting ridiculous all right. I saw a TV commercial for Fitbit last night. The lead character was a black female. No surprise, 50-60 percent or more of commercials feature lead African-Americans these days. But then they showed her sitting up in bed with a female bed companion. They showed it twice, in case you missed it the first time. Her partner isn't black either, probably Asian or Hispanic. That gets the interracial angle in there too. So having a black female lead isn't enough anymore. Now you need a black, gay female in an interracial relationship lead to make a splash.

    If advertisers really wanted to make a splash these days, they'd show a WASP, straight couple.

    So should commercials be subject to quotas using the absolute % of the population of whites/blacks/Latinos/Other/male/female/trans/hetero (cis)/LGBTQ+/mixed etc?

    Who could track it? We know the quota system would be challenged viciously by the Left.

    So instead we are "agenda'd" by the Liberal media/Hollywood as they ram their overcompensation tools (which is what they are doing; overcompensating to somehow force the pendulum to where? The middle or all the way Left?) down everyone's throats as they watch TV with their children.

    My children can see it a mile away. They know they are being messaged and manipulated. They just roll their eyes and live their lives.

    I suspect you'd be tripping all over the 1st Amendment with that.

    I'm glad your kids can see it a mile away.

    I'll just take the cue that those products aren't for me and will move my business else where.

    Want to know why Republicans are banning CRT? It's because there are too many people like the authors of this piece. They are OCD and sick with hatred. We don't need that emotional over the top obsession in the classroom.

    Much of our slang comes from the Black community. Not acknowledging that perpetuates racism.

    And by the way, slang in g eneral is not elevating the culture AND my children know what's black and what's not. They're not stupid. Do you want them to stop saying it? Maybe the fact that they use black slang honors black people.

    Or maybe not.

    I just don't know anymore.

    But it is interesting that Pete Townsend wrote these words in "My Generation":

    "Don't try and dig what we all say..."

    That was aimed at the older generation and it's nothing new. I guess we're dividing the kids now. They used to be alright. If they speak the same language then maybe that is bringing them together. But, these Liberal writers won't have it. They want to divide us so they can make a name for themselves. Their opinions are a disgrace as far as I'm concerned.

    They aren't elevating the culture either.

    The black community uses the n word all the time in their slang. Should I acknowledge that loudly?

    Doesn't the Black community uses the "N word" to take control over it's functional definition? Far right extremists do the same with "Patriot". These groups are trying to redefine the usage of the term, take ownership of it.

    If we follow the Donald McNeil standard, their intent doesn't matter, and yet most sane adults can see that a few guys dropping the N-bomb as a slang term of endearment, singing along with a rap, or quoting another person isn't the end of the world and isn't remotely offensive compared to someone actually directing it at another person with malice. That's what's stupid about these language pissing matches. They try to disregard motives (which are obviously very important) to try to force offense where it doesn't exist.

    Let the left crap on her and Joe Manchin. Manchin could switch parties and pull a Jim Jeffords. Sinema wouldn't, because she's still generally a liberal, but if she loses in a primary to a more partisan Democrat, her seat would be much easier to flip so long as the Kelli Ward wing of the GOP doesn't throw it away.

    That would be nice if he did right now - it would dethrone Schumer as Majority Leader and restore Mitch McConnell, putting the brakes on the liberal agenda big time.
