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…

Geez…

I need to go through the links on the right side of the page. Lots of stuff has changed over the last couple of years.

Merry Christmas.

I have a sister-in-law at the house right now. She’s lucky that we don’t live in Florida.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade… sorta… I have the tv on without the sound and look up once in a while.

Came across this at Mashable.

They used to just let the balloons go at the end of the parade!

Shoot… The show just ended and I missed the Rockettes.

Tonight’s Debate

I guess this is true!

Heh…

Hillary…

In regard to her fainting spell today: Hillary should come to her senses Andropov the ticket.

That line was stolen, without any shame from the comments over at Sailer’s place.

In an article about local breweries suing for the right to sell distribution rights…

We have this gem of a quote:

Assistant Attorney General Karen Watkins noted that “everything that these brewers are allowed to do is the result of having obtained a privilege from the state.” She said state law was previously silent on payments for distribution rights, meaning it wasn’t clear they were ever legal.

Look at that! She says we need to get permission from the state to do anything. She also implies a Napoleonic legal system. Ms. Watkins, that’s next door in Louisiana where there is a Napoleonic legal system. We don’t have that in Texas. Not yet, anyway…
