Heh…

 

Made me laugh out loud.

Nice stuff. I don’t really even remember how I found them, but a new favorite.

The Coming Boomercide – Z Man

The Coming Boomercide – The Z Blog

I believe we are headed to what I like to call “The Great Reset.”

Pensions, Social Security, Student Loans, Entitlements, Medicare, Obamacare, Military Adventures Abroad, the list goes on… and on… and, well, it’s obvious no one really knows how long the list is.

It is a simple fact that not all of this can be paid for or paid off. Something has to give?

My current leading expected method by which the establishment will try to fix these problems is with several years of runaway inflation. But the Z Man may be correct. Maybe the youngsters won’t want to share the pain of the inflation with the Boomers (I’m a late stage boomer that didn’t vote for any of this crap. I’m a late stage boomer more worried about his children’s future than whether or not I get a few years of boating in Florida before I slip into dementia). Maybe the younguns will push us boomers off a cliff. Maybe they will have the stones to just stop payment.

I better be nice to the kids.

Ski bum: A job that Americans just won’t do – Sailer

The “Ski Industry” doesn’t want to raise wages so they are looking for foreigners

Go read the whole thing. I do like Sailer’s comment section. Lots of good info there.

Tucker Carlson is Attracting Attention

I’ve seen this in a number of places the last few days. I think it good and generally correct:

Look, it’s really simple,” Carlson says. “The SAT 50 years ago pulled a lot of smart people out of every little town in America and funneled them into a small number of elite institutions, where they married each other, had kids, and moved to an even smaller number of elite neighborhoods. We created the most effective meritocracy ever.

But the problem with the meritocracy,” he continues, is that it “leeches all the empathy out of your society … The second you think that all your good fortune is a product of your virtue, you become highly judgmental, lacking empathy, totally without self-awareness, arrogant, stupid—I mean all the stuff that our ruling class is.

That is Tucker Carlson. Here.

Another Fond Memory

I was working on the Space Shuttle program at Vandenberg AFB in ’86. I was living in Lompoc. There was some silly parade and some group with a wagon and a boom box came down the main drag. They were dressed as the Flintstones. They implored you to “Come Dance with the Flintstones” while playing this song on the boom box.

It struck me as hysterical…

A-ha

I always have liked this song. A great version:

Enjoy.
