The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Why, it's as if men and women are different!

I am glad that we have very few women working as electricians and tree trimmers and construction workers and a host of other occupations in which physical strength and agility play a role. Denying that is insanity, and endangers everyone.

Think of the 120 pound woman cop who either requires the assistance of larger and stronger men to do her job, or requires deadly force in its absence!

We used to celebrate those differences, but now we must deny biology and traditional culture in service to...what? Of what benefit to society is there if more women go into trades that will get them killed or injured at a rate close to that of men (probably higher)? How does that improve our lot?

If my house catches on fire I want the firemen who respond to be young, fit, strong men who can save me and my family as quickly and as safely as possible. I do not want a woman with less upper-body strength and less athletic ability to try to save us just because of some insane policy of "equality."

Equality of death seems to be a sub-optimal goal.


I guess in a just world, as envisioned by the maniacs on the Left, we will have fathers breastfeeding and changing diapers while mothers go to work digging ditches and repairing power lines during storms and serving warrants on violent criminals and guarding supermax prisons.

Screw you!
NYPD demands that Waze stop including police locations
"Individuals who post the locations of DWI checkpoints may be engaging in criminal conduct since such actions could be intentional attempts to prevent and/or impair the administration of the DWI laws and other relevant criminal and traffic laws," Acting Deputy Commissioner for Legal Matters Ann Prunty wrote in the letter, according to the report. "Accordingly, we demand that Google LLC, upon receipt of this letter, immediately remove this function from the Waze application."
We are a free people, and restricting our ability to thwart the government in its incessant and unending attempts to create a nation of compliant drones will be met with resistance. The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution protects our right to speak freely. The 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution protects our right to change our government if it no longer allows us to speak freely.

Your choice.

This was Twitter's reaction to my suggestion that a hack journalist knew absolutely nothing about American history. She suggested that tariffs were something new for Republicans, rather than one of the main planks of the "American System," which has been around since...oh...men like Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun and John Quincy Adams supported it! I'm no journalist, but that makes it 200+ years old.

What did I say? I suggested that she was too dumb to #LearnToCode....
