Gift ideas for Christmas

Since President Trump declared it is fine to say “Merry Christmas” again we here at Loon Watch thought it is time to get a jump of some gift ideas for those Snowflakes on your special list.

Everyone likes a pet and one that you don’t have to get up at zero dark thirty on a chilly rainy morning and take out to do their business is a great idea. Cats shed and the males spray. Why put up with that. Birds are noisy and have to be kept warm. Phooey! Now fish require none of the aforementioned bothers. They stay put in their tank don’t need to be fed at certain times and can be fun to watch.

With some careful though, they can be of historical value as well as a decorative asset to your domicile.

Or have it delivered to her or his dorm room so that all their SJW buds can enjoy the soothing companionship of the pets.

Meet your Representatives!

If this doesn’t convince you that you need to vote new people into office, then there is no hope for change.

Peccable reflections

With all the ongoing Oh yeah!-Yeah! shouting between the Norks and the U.S., it might behoove us to take a hard look at the relationship twixt the NFL and the Military.
Those knee-bending mushwits can show the troops how to step back and let those clowns take the lead; they’re all fired up over someone pushing them around OFF the field.

It is easier to use a picture than a thousand words so…

Peccable reflections

Perhaps some of the readers can hearken back to their days when they gamboled in their fields of wild oats in rather loose behavior. Some of the comments below might being back some memories which dance very close to the edge of reality.

Some anamnesis from your salad days.

  • You’re not sure when Mary Ann sneaked out your apartment last night, but you figure it was about the same time Mrs. Howell sneaked in.
  • You resolve to call your local councilman and complain about the city’s ill-advised policy of putting lampposts in the middle of the road.
  • Falling into the ocean from the shore, hen waking up staring at an oil soaked railroad embankment and a heavily overdrawn bank account are truly elements of “the most awesome weekend.”
  • You call an ex-friend at 3am to ask what he meant by that remark last July.
  • You receive divorce papers from your liver and it wants full custody of the kidneys.
  • You were genuinely excited about an ad promising “More bars in more places” until you found out they were talking about cell phones.
  • You don’t have to imagine what a spilled gin and tonic sucked from a shag rug tastes like.
  • You holler out,”Beerkeep, more bar” and wonder why you’re outside.
  • You drank so much beer last night you single-highhandedly wore out a fresh urinal cake.

Kasich: If GOP “can’t be fixed,” I can’t support it

“If the party can’t be fixed … I’m not going to be able to support the party. Period. That’s the end of it … But have I given up? No,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said to CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday.

The bottom line: Kasich has been one of President Trump’s most vocal opponents within the party, and some point to him as a likely primary challenger in 2020. But Kasich seems to be toying with the idea of leaving the GOP entirely — though he said for now he remains committed to trying to change it from within.

We thought you already quit! All the noise Kasich makes sounds like something Hillary wrote anyway. DOOR-ASS-BANG! Goodbye.

Have you ever wondered what happened at Equifax? How did this happen? Who was in charge?

Here’s one part of the answer:

Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

“Social justice warfare at Oberlin has been more intense and sustained over a longer period of time than at most schools, and has come to define Oberlin in the media,” Mr. Jacobson said. “The resulting mockery and derision, even in liberal publications, has damaged the Oberlin brand.”

Surveys support the notion that, in the era of Trump, conservatives have become more skeptical about the value of a college degree.  [snip]

A study published by the Washington-based Pew Research Center in July found that just 36 percent of Republicans believe colleges and universities have a positive effect on the country, down from 54 percent two years ago.

Gallup released a poll in August that found just 33 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents had a “great deal or quite a lot of confidence in higher education.” Sixty-seven percent said they have “some or very little” confidence in academia. [snip]

In February 2013, mass hysteria ensued after racist and anti-Semitic flyers and graffiti began to appear all over campus. Classes were canceled, meetings were held and students began to see racism around every corner, including when someone reported seeing a member of the Ku Klux Klan on campus. It turned out to be a woman walking around wrapped in a blanket to keep warm.

Not only that, the perpetrators behind the racist paraphernalia turned out to be two progressive students, one of whom was confirmed to be an Obama supporter, trying to get a reaction out of their classmates and the administration.

Rather than admit the whole thing was a hoax and move on, the Oberlin administration doubled down on a social justice agenda, including the implementation of a privilege and oppression “reorientation” for first-year students.

In the ensuing years, Oberlin students would go on to make frequent demands of the university, ranging from the end of culturally appropriated meals at the dining hall, such as General Tso’s chicken and sushi, to the elimination of grades below a C. [snip]

These aren’t colleges; they’re expensive day care centers for very immature and spoiled snowflakes.

Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, said that drop-off is more serious than it may appear.

“That doesn’t sound like an astonishing number of people not coming, but weighed on a percentage basis, that’s a huge drop in just one year,” Mr. Wood said. “And Oberlin has for some time been struggling to make its classes. This wasn’t just some negligence: ‘Oh, we didn’t realize that we had to try harder to get students.’ They’ve been trying really hard to get students, and students just aren’t coming.”

He said Oberlin can easily recoup the $5 million deficit by cutting the “apparatus of political correctness” that has swelled in the past several years. When that happens, he said, it will be a sign that the school is serious about reform.

“The signal that I would look for is when they begin to divest from the large number of personnel who are employed wholly because of their political orientations,” he said. “When that happens, I think we will have seen a college that has decided to reposition itself in the market. Until then, it’s all just show.”

You’re better off learning to weld than wasting money on a college education.
