The Morning Report - 1/18/22

maumaumaomeow.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and with all the tyranny, crime, immiseration and threats from within and without our nearly non-existent borders ready to wipe us out, one item this morning just caused me to laugh for an instant, before collapsing into paroxysms of despair.

"I'm a [substitute teacher], and the most important thing we do is take roll, so the school gets paid" the teacher rants. "So, I'm looking at the seating chart as I'm going up and down the rows and marking who's here and who's not. I get to the third row and I hear this 'meow.' Uhhh, excuse me?"

The woman goes on to say that a little girl told her that the teacher needs to meow back because the boy identifies as a cat. The substitute jokingly asked if there was a litterbox in the classroom. The boy then stormed off, and the teacher barked at him.

She ends the video by stating that, when she went to the main office to check out for the day, she was told, "We no longer need your services if you can't identify with all the children in the classroom."

"I told the lady, I said, 'I didn't know cats were considered people. I thought they were pets."

Let me step off of the ledge for a second, take a breath and ponder. Am I being played? Is this complete bullshit/clickbait? Let us assume, for the sake of all of our sanity that it is. The fact that I had my initial reaction to it just underscores the fact that our society and culture have degenerated to such a degree that something I would have dismissed out of hand a few years ago is now within the realm of possibility. And not remotely either.

Two or three generations of children - and counting - year by year have been force fed higher and higher dosages of abject poison, until their brains and their souls were lost to us. Beyond the government, the courts and the bureaucracy, we find ourselves surrounded by far too many people who, as children, guzzled this Kool Aid brewed by fiends from Howard Zinn and Edward Said to Nikole Krylon Klown Hair and Ibram X. Krement. You'll find them behind a cash register, a Fryolator, the operating theater, an airliner cockpit and the C suite -- from Wall Street to Main Street (the bits that were not mostly peacefully looted and burned over the past 18 months) to even the pulpits of our houses of worship, and everywhere in between. Worse than useless pod people, they will denounce you as evil for not wearing a face diaper or getting shot up with Dr. Fauci's Gene-Altering Laudanum, to claiming that there are only two genders.

Meh, too many of these people evidently aren't even working at all.

They say you have to work hard to get ahead, but some are finding that you can work very little and still do pretty well.

On Reddit, the "antiwork" subreddit is now one of the social network's most active and engaged pages, after seeing explosive growth during the [Chinese] COVID-19 pandemic. It currently has more than 1.6 million users, up from 180,000 in October 2020. People post epic text and e-mail screenshots of quitting their jobs, but the real heroes are so-called "idlers" -- those who stay in jobs doing the absolute minimum to get by while still collecting a paycheck.

"Those who stay in jobs doing the absolute minimum to get by while still collecting a paycheck" are otherwise known as government employees, usually found at the DMV or Postal Service. If only they did the barest of bare minimums at say the IRS or EPA.

She noted that the general idea behind the anti-work movement "is to reduce the coercive element of labor as much as possible by subverting capitalism," and said that those active on the page are mainly far leftists who support Bernie Sanders and AOC, and, often also identify as socialists, communists and/or anarchists. . .

. . . Some fear anti-workers could have far-reaching consequences for the economy. The Financial Times recently reported that Goldman Sachs was fretting that the movement posed a "long-run risk" to labor force participation.

It comes at a time where a record number of workers are quitting, a phenomenon that's been dubbed the Great Resignation. In November, 4.5 million Americans voluntarily left their jobs, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.

So, what does the sub getting fired for refusing to meow back at a student have to do with this? Everything. The work ethic, that is, earning a living via hard work - whatever that work may be - is one of the pillars of of our nation and society. It is in many ways an essential component of freedom and independence. NB the reference to Sandersnista and Titty Caca and you'll see what I'm driving at. To them, self-reliance is like showing the cross to Dracula. Remember during the halcyon (by comparison) days of "recovery summer" when Malig-Nancy Pelosi crowed about how being unemployed liberated you from "job lock," so you can be free to pursue your dream to be a poet, painter, toe-dancer or whatever -- while being financed with free money from Uncle Sugar?

Of course, there is no free money. It is a Faustian quid pro quo. Eventually, when you're on the dole, you'll have to pay them back, especially when you waste so much time on your ass that you become unemployable. And then, they own you. Worse still is when corporatist cronies (for a multitude of reasons too extensive to go into right now) ship almost our entire manufacturing sector overseas leaving millions unemployed. Even more "worser-er" still is that as decades pass, skills like welding, carpentry, tool and die making, foundry work, etc. etc. are not taught because those with that priceless knowledge retire and die off and there is no job market to support those skills in the first place.

But work, money, a home and family, upward mobility and individual freedom are damned as evil by the acorns that fell from the poisoned tree of Bill Ayers and his acolytes. If we vest our hopes in just elections, or in a few people like Trump, DeSantis, MTG and a couple others, we've already lost. The rot is so pervasive, dark and deep and goes way beyond just government. There are positive signs out there such as the parents in Virginia, which I should think (and pray) is just the tip of the iceberg. That is where the battle is going to be won or lost. We are going to have to do everything we can to protect the hearts and minds of our children not yet poisoned by the Communists, and try as best we can to reach and win back the hearts and minds of those already in their clutches.

If we don't, you better learn to meow and put your heart into it.
