Tuesday Links - 6 February

Chicago Contrarian is up first with Who Will Raise Chicago’s Children? A story of how Chicago Public Schools want to implement Huxley's dystopia, Brave New World.

Now it appears that the Chicago Public Schools (CPS), being prodded on by a radical leftist arm of the Chicago Teachers Union, the CORE caucus, has taken Huxley’s warning as an instruction manual. In CORE’s dystopian future — which is now — your children do not belong to you; every child is a ward of the state.

Tam at View from the Porch - King of the K-frame Carry Magnums

One of the most sought-after postwar K-frame variants, from back in the earliest days of the Smith & Wesson Performance Center.

The Other McCain - Alvin Bragg and the Biden Agenda

What Bragg cannot do is tell the truth: All of this — the turn-em-loose policy toward criminals, the flood of illegal immigrants — is part of Joe Biden’s agenda, the Democratic Party’s plan to destroy America. They’re importing “asylum seekers” to create a new constituency who will terrorize law-abiding citizens (and vote Democrat).

Legal Insurrection - Today in “Science”: American Psychological Association Study Asserts ‘Hiring Most Qualified Candidate’ may be ‘Unfair’

We now live in the era of the ideological capture of science. The only science that is permitted is the science that supports political narratives and agendas.

As “Diversity-Equity-Inclusion” permeates our institutions of higher learning, those who promote this rebranded racism seek “scientific” support for ignoring job candidates that may have more talent and fewer instances of plagiarizing work.

Granite Grok - Concord OBGYN: Patient Choice Is a Really, Really Bad Thing

Earlier this week, Representative Leah Cushman introduced HB 1010 “relative to expanding maternity options and midwifery access.” Fortunately, representatives of the “we know what’s best for you” crowd were there to explain why patient choice is a very, very bad thing.

Again from The Other McCain - No Bond for Rapist in North Carolina

The passing reference to Allen’s “criminal history” omits the interesting details of that history. Fortunately, being named Santerius Qwayshawn made his past crimes rather easy to find with a Google search.

Pixy Misa at Ambient Irony - Daily News Stuff 3 February 2024: Down And Out In Zuckerland Edition

Google is officially killing its cached pages feature in search results - about five years after it stopped working. (Tom's Hardware)

It's a bit like Ford announcing it is planning to stop selling the Edsel. In 2024.

Meep at Stump - RIP, Adele Groyer: A Tribute to an Actuary

I knew her only from afar... but she told me what a Colin was ;)

Wombat-socho - FMJRA 2.0: F*** Snow

I blame California for all the wretched white stuff that fell out of the sky and made the commute from Carson City out to Dayton & Back absolutely miserable.

Adaptive Curmudgeon - Project Daily Driver: Heat. I swear he makes his own life difficult...

My 4×4 truck has no heat. No worries. Heat’s not rocket science and I was far more concerned with complex stuff like locking differentials and shit. Also, I’m open to unusual solutions…

Again from Wombat-socho - Rule 5 Monday: The Master Race Strikes Again

We’re all familiar by now with the Japanese tendency to seize on some aspect of American culture and go nuts over it, but I never dreamed that Texaboos existed, and certainly not in enough numbers to support Western bars in Japan. Yet, there they are, and as we can see from today’s appetizer, Japanese girls look downright cute in their Daisy Dukes & tied-off shirts.
