12:55 P.M. The Thot Plickens !!! …

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who claims ( without any evidence ) that Kavanaugh inappropriately touched her at a drunken party while in high school, turns out to have ties to an abortion pill pharmaceutical company called Corcept Therapeutics ( produces an abortion pill called “ mifepristone ” also referred to as RU-486 ) …

This discovery brings to light an obvious conflict of interest in Blasey’s story , revealing that she works for a pharmaceutical company that manufacturers an abortion pill drug , whose profits could be strongly impacted by future Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights.

MORBNOTE ; HUUUUGE Politics and money involved in pharmaceuticals !!! …

9:32 A.M. A good read from …

Are Short Skirts and Thug-Wear Conducive To Learning ? …

I’ve never worn a school uniform.  My burgherly public high school didn’t require pressed slack s, liveried sweaters, solid-colored ties , button-ups , or polished Oxfords.  The only proscribed apparel items were shorts for boys and overly short skirts for girls.  Spaghetti-strap tops , I believe, were forbidden as well. That was it.  

We didn’t need regimented ensembles to maintain a sense of order and authority like soldiers huddled in a billet.  A rule of modest discernment applied sparingly sufficed.But even that paucity of constraints is still too much for other schools , which are loosening dress codes at the behest of an oppressed student body.  Schools in California and Illinois are allowing short shorts and tank tops.  Bans on hoodies , previously seen as standard delinquent wear , are being lifted.  Boys in Alvin , Texas will soon be allowed to wear makeup. These developments can be waved away with a simple Who cares ?  And , no doub t, the prevailing American attitude of individual expressionism is in favor of more lax dress standards.

But is such a stance wise ?  Does making the classroom resemble a casual Saturday at Walmart really imbue students with a sense of purpose ? It seems not.  A general slackening of mores for attire follows the anomie that has long seeped into American life.  It is also yet another indication of how muddled the collective message is we’re sending our kids. Children in America get too many mixed signals about their roles in world.  The social pressures they face in school have changed dramatically, even in the past decade.  And I’m not talking about the eternal adolescent struggles of bullying; status-seeking ; athletic competition ; studying ; and , worst of all , teenage courtship.  In school , those are all precursors to real-world challenges and responsibility.

What I’m referring to are new adversities , the kind no child ( let alone adult ) should have to contend with.  School shootings are depicted as a constant threat.  Transgenderism and its concomitant perversion of language are inserted into the elementary school curriculum.  The ubiquity of smartphone technology gives every child and his immediate friends access to vast stores of violence ; pornography ; and humanity’s darkest, most macabre desires. Worse , children are increasingly used as political props by people who think five-year-olds holding ” Impeach Trump ! ” signs are , in some way , endearing.  Political rallies , especially those of the left , are dotted with dewy-eyed kids who appeared confused as to their own attendance.  They hold paint-stirrers with poster board taped to them and mouth platitudes they can’t begin to comprehend. Helpless youngsters have their minds filled with the uninformed ramblings of parents too obsessed with politics to be proper stewards of their minds.  

These are absentee parents , just of a different nature.  They are present , but as companions , not guardians.

” My impression is that our children have become increasingly like children who have been to madrassas , except that what they have been taught is not the Koran , but a vulgate of political correctness ” writes Theodore Dalrymple. ” We treat children like adults as they come of age , then coddle them upon reaching college.  Institutions of higher education are risk-averse to the point of parody.  Rather than explore heterodox ideas , today’s university student is more likely to join in a groupthink cult of progressive identity.  If , Heaven forbid , they’re challenged on the typical leftist shibboleths by an outside speaker , they’ll cry foul and demand that no platform be given.  Should the speaker insist , petulant outrage is not regarded as a rash response “.

Should we really be surprised that young men and women , having spent years prior being unmoored from traditional adult authority , regress to infantilism once leaving the safe feathered nest of home ? It’s not their fault , after all .  A child’s problems can usually be traced back to his progenitors.  Parents have been derelict in their duty to rear their children properly.  In the name of openness and tolerance , we’ve unfettered them from the constraints of old , only to abandon them to the world’s harsh and fluid vagaries. It’s no shock , then , that teenagers are reporting higher levels of depression. Being a parent doesn’t mean transforming into a martinet , drilling your children in strict codes of conduct.  

There’s a balance between being a disciplinarian and being a friend.  As F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in Tender Is the Night , ” the forcing of children and the fear of forcing them were inadequate substitutes for the long , careful watchfulness , the checking and balancing and reckoning of accounts , to the end that there should be no slip below a certain level of duty “…

School uniforms are not a necessity , but a fashion free-for-all isn’t helpful , either .  Kids don’t learn faster by encountering adult tribulations sooner.  They still need and crave direction.”

Be your child ‘s , not their ‘ best friend ‘.

11:38 A.M. Right on Doug !!! … Keep goin’ !!! …

Ontario’s highest court has paved the way for a considerable cut to the size of Toronto’s city council just weeks from a municipal election …

This morning , a panel of three Court of Appeal justices stayed a lower court’s Sept. 10 ruling that struck down a provincial bill that would cut the council from 47 to 25 members. The decision … Which basically freezes the lower court’s decision … Means city staff will immediately begin preparing for a 25-ward election Oct / 22 …

In its arguments earlier this week , the province’s legal team said the stay was necessary to provide certainty to the city clerk , who is responsible for upholding a fair election. The timing and circumstances of the election were thrown into chaos when the Progressive Conservatives unexpectedly introduced the council-cutting legislation , Bill 5 , after the campaign period had already begun …

MORBNOTE ; What’s with this ‘ unexpectedly ‘ adverb ?!! … Doug and his party campaigned on this issue  as a major policy point … And it’s a very large portion of the reason many people voted for his party … And the turncoat ‘ conservative ‘ who is now Mayor of Toronto , a lifelong mediocre politician , John Tory , KNEW his attempts to stop or stall it would fail in the courts … But chose to waste taxpayer’s time and money attempting it anyway !!! …

JohnTory1

The city challenged it in Ontario Superior Court , and Judge Edward Belobaba ruled against the province , saying the legislation was unconstitutional because it violated freedom of expression rights for candidates and voters. The Court of Appeal , however , disagreed with his assessment of the legislation , calling it a ” dubious ruling that invalidates legislation duly passed by the legislature … Unfairness alone does not establish a charter breach “…

” Unquestionably , Ontario’s announcement of its intention to introduce Bill 5 disrupted the campaigns that were already underway. However , Bill 5 does not limit or restrict any message the candidates wish to convey to voters,” the ruling said.” While the change brought about by Bill 5 is undoubtedly frustrating for candidates who started campaigning in May 2018 , we are not persuaded that their frustration amounts to a substantial interference with their freedom of expression”… it continued …” Candidates had a reasonable expectation that they would be operating under a 47-ward platform …. However , neither that platform nor that expectation was constitutionally guaranteed. Unfairness alone does not establish a charter breach “…

MORBNOTE II ; Typical ‘ legalese ‘ bullshit … The ‘ candidates ‘ had a ‘ reasonable expectation ‘ of vying for a 47 ward platform … But were ‘ aware ‘ of the intention of Doug’s party in this regard had it won the election … So they should have been prudent to ‘ expect ‘ that possible change also !…

Doug’s party DID indeed win !! … So they should have immediately ‘ expected ‘ the reduction …

Enjoy your first attempts at getting the Premier to facilitate you on all the things on your ‘ wish ‘ list John … Old Dougie’s not the type of guy you want to piss off !!! …

5:31 P.M. This is the best ( and ONLY ) entertainment on any screen these days !!! …

Although this comes from the arena of ‘ politics ‘ … I find it far more fitting to have in this category !!! …

Mel Brooks ? …Don Rickles ? … Robin Williams ? … The ‘ prime ‘ Saturday night live ‘ cast and writers ?!! …The best comedy writers in the history of the world couldn’t top this shit !!! …

A California woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were in high school has come forward , alleging in an interview that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a Maryland house party and clumsily tried to remove her clothing …

MORBNOTE ; If you’re anything like me … Upon reading ‘ … when they were in high school … ) … I immediately thought to myself … ‘ How long ago was this ?! ‘… I digress … Carry on reading …

Christine Blasey Ford said in the interview with The Washington Post that Kavanaugh and a friend , both ‘ stumbling drunk ‘ ( she says ! ) … Corralled her into a bedroom during the party in the early 1980s …

MORBNOTE II ; OK … Now at this point … I can do the math and quickly ascertain that both parties are at least several years older than my son is now ( Just shy of 30 ) … And approaching their 40 ‘s …

She says Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes , grinded his body against hers and tried to take off her one-piece swimsuit and the outfit she wore over it. Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream , she says …

Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh ‘ unequivocally ‘ denies this sexual misconduct allegation …

” I thought he might inadvertently kill me ” says Ford , 51 , a professor at Palo Alto University in California …

MORBNOTE III ; AHAAA !!! There it is !!! … She is NOW 51 … She was in high school … AFTER me ( at goin’ on 59 ) … Which means she’s grade nine material !!! … Possibly grade 8 ( I’m not privy to exactly how it works in the States ) … So we’re talkin’ 14 to 16 years old MAX !! …

” He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing “… She says she was able to get away after Kavanaugh’s friend jumped on top of them and everyone tumbled …

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and repeated that denial again Sunday through the White House …

” I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time ” Kavanaugh said …

Ford says in the interview that she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012 , when she and her husband sought couples therapy …

MORBNOTE IV ; So she managed to live with this for over 30 odd years !!! and now , at the time when other issues are at work against her current relationship , it becomes a MAJOR issue for us all to have to hear about !!! …

Portions of her therapist’s notes , which Ford provided to the Post , do not mention Kavanaugh by name but say Ford reported being attacked by students ‘ from an elitist boys’ school ‘ who went on to become ‘ highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington ‘…

Kavanaugh , 53 , is a federal appeals judge in Washington … President Donald Trump nominated him in July to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court …

The therapist’s notes say four boys were involved , but Ford says that was an error by the therapist. Ford says four boys were at the party , but only two boys were in the room at the time …

MORBNOTE ; ( Summary ) Note how even Mrs. Ford refers to the two as ‘ boys ‘ …

‘ Course we all know what that means … Democrats are reaching and clawing for ANYTHING and all to avert ANYTHING The Donald tries to do while in duly elected office !!! …

Feinstein calls for FBI investigation !!! …

( AHHHH !!! … Imagine wakin’ up to that in the early hours of the morning ?!!! … YIKKKKKES !!! …

Pelosi2

 

Have Pelosi pop her face in thru the bedroom door at the same time and one’s heart would burst out of your chest , smash thru the bedroom window and splatter on the driveway !!! …

 

 

I mean really folks … If it actually WAS something … Why are you bringing it up now … You should have informed authorities then and pressed charges … I know I’m gettin’ old … But I remember my adolescence quite well … We ALL were pressing the limits in an attempt to explore … ( And that INCLUDES the girls ) … I’m sure we’d all like to rewind and save ourselves from some ‘ awkward ‘ memories … But it’s all part of a wee adage that is commonly known as … GROWING THE FUCK UP !!! …

You’re in your 50’s now !!! … Why did ya have the bikini on under your loose clothing at the party in the first place Chris ? … HUH ? … Eh ? … How ’bout fillin’ us in on that aspect of it … You’ve been to one therapist already about your failing relationship … You might want to check out an expert on suppressed childhood memories of guilt next …

This is politically motivated and nothing else.
