Unlamented

Ginsburg: Unlamented
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Unlamented

I’m not going to sugarcoat anything. I’m glad Justice Ginsburg is gone. While I don’t rejoice in her death – She was never that bad of a person – I’m very glad she’s no longer poisoning the SCOTUS with her well-written but piss-poor, agenda-driven opinions.

Frankly, Justice Ginsburg was, proper jurisprudence-wise, the worst judge in the current SCOTUS. Only her counterpart, the late Justice Scalia came close to matching her failings to place the law above personal opinion. Hence, her passing is a boon to America in my opinion.

And no, none of this detracts from Ginsburg’s historical significance. She was the 2nd woman appointed to the Court and the first Jewish woman – and only the 2nd Jew – to be so appointed. Yet, that significance is solely identity-based and, thus suspect.

So no; I don’t in any way lament Ginsburg passing since it was the only way she’d leave the Court.

NOTE: To those sorts who would attack me over this post: I have a solid background the law, some of which was in a professional capacity, and actually regularly read SCOTUS and Appellate Court opinions. If you can’t argue in that arena, best you just shut up and move along.

If you can do so, however, bring it on! A robust, even vitriolic, debate upon the specifics, nature, purpose, and fundamental basis of law in America is part and parcel to this “Grand Experiment” which is our nation.

Coronavirus In Context

Coronavirus In Context
Coronavirus In Context

Yes! Let’s put COVID-19 and the Coronavirus in a purely objective context, paired against our more normal and largely here in the West ignored lethal diseases. COVID-19 daily kills 1.85% of what tuberculosis kills and, more significantly here in the West, COVID-19 kills only 5.45% of the seasonal flu kills each and every day during flu season.

Now, I’m not saying to take no precautions whatsoever, I wasn’t even against a short-term lock-down in heavily infected areas, e.g., my own New York City. The lasting panic and resultant “protective measures” enacted by some in government seem ridiculous though – worse than ridiculous, dangerous.

Think of the precedent that’s we’ve allowed being set in that same purely objective context. Does anyone really believe that these same government bodies won’t expand their actions to “combating” the ever-so more lethal seasonal flu, especially if a coronavirus vaccine isn’t in widespread use before flu season starts in approx. 4 months?

Set An Extra Place

Set an extra place at the table this memorial day

Well, it’s Memorial Day once, though most people seem to confuse it with Veterans Day these days.

So please, do enjoy your BBQ – I will – because it’s the right thing to do. It’s good to celebrate the life, freedom, and prosperity that those rough men and women died to protect.

But maybe, just maybe, you might want to set an extra place at the table for their shades. They did, after all, pay for that fine meal.

That’s all. Just a thought that maybe you might want to spare a thought and a little table space for our fallen soldiers and the ones they left behind.

Tyson’s Oddly Apt

Tyson's Oddly Apt When It Comes To Deaths And Attention
Tyson’s Oddly Apt When It Comes To Deaths And Attention

I’m not a particular proponent of Neil deGrass Tyson as either a scientist or a valid authority on sociopolitical issues, but Tyson’s oddly apt in the case of his recent tweet about mass shootings, deaths in general, and the mass market response to such things.

There’s too many people – sheeple really – who go into hysterics over the ever-hyped by the Democrats’ Lamestream Media occurrences like “mass shootings” but are apathetic towards so many other avoidable ways in which people die on daily basis. They just dutifully bleat about what they’re told to bleat about so that the grifters of the Left can profiteer off of this tragedies.

So, kudos to Mr. Tyson for actually applying reason and facts to the situation and putting in a more rational perspective.

Borders More Secure & Safer

Certain sorts, all of which are either Democrat politicians or likely Democrat voters, have been stridently, cruelly, and insanely attacking President Trump and the American people over the Border Crisis and its resultant deaths among those trying to illegally enter our country.

Of course, these sorts are not attached to the truth, especially when any truth is contrary to their dystopian, anti-American and anti-White fantasies. The truth is that our nations borders are more secure and safer, even for illegal aliens, now than at any time in decades. Under President Trump’s oversight there’s been an approximately 22% decline in fatalities involving border crossings compared to those under Obama’s watch. This,despite the unheard of increase in illegal crossing attempts, most of which occurred in huge waves.

And, as a side note, The Trump Administration has also so far not made a habit of giving unaccompanied minors caught at the border to human traffickers, something the Obama Regime cannot claim.

But then, this false narrative created by the demagoguery of leftist and racist politicians and their dutiful media shills is just an extension of the similar lies about “children in cages” – yet another legacy of the Obama Regime. It’s just that Obama was a Black and the sort incessantly attacking President Trump would never say anything against him due to that. That’d be racist!

But hey! It’s not as if facts, truth, or the reality on the ground is going to dissuade Americans’ domestic enemies. Honestly, we need to put that fantasy aside along with our compunctions and do what’s needed to preserve our nation… After all, that’s one part of what the 2nd Amendment was crafted for.
