How to be a Leader for Climate Justice

(TED) Join the global conversation by hosting your own TEDx Countdown event and sharing the inspiring work taking place in your community. You can also find existing events near you, where you’ll have opportunities to engage with climate leaders who are working towards a cleaner, greener future for all.

As I scroll through the web pages, I get the impression that I’d be more accepted at a TED event if I was African. That is easily remedied by simple self-identification. I may look like an old white guy, but I’m actually a 25-year-old negro who further identifies as female to check yet another critical box in the never-ending search for equity.

 

Bullet Points:

** If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in five years. – Milton Friedman

** Government Stores – However, rising taxes and crime had led many to leave, particularly businesses.  This includes grocery chains. Walmart, Walgreens, and Aldi are just some of the companies closing stores.

Johnson’s solution is telling. Rather than address the underlying conditions, he is suggesting a solution that has failed historically — government-run stores. Indeed, the failure to deal with crime and hostile business environments has allowed socialist activists to realize a major new socialist agenda item.

** Conundrum – “If a politician does a ‘favor’ for a crime boss, and the crime boss pays the politician’s wife, it’s still bribery. If the crime boss pays the politician’s crackhead son on account of the favor, it’s still bribery.” — Jeff Childers, the Coffee & Covid blog

** Many of us recall when the IRS seized the Mustang Ranch, a whorehouse in Nevada, for back taxes. The IRS took over the prostitution operation and somehow ran it at a loss. Eventually, they turned over management to reputed mobsters who were able to turn it around and run it at a profit. The IRS only cared about the money.

** The IRS suspected a fishing boat owner wasn’t paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him.

IRS AUDITOR: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”

BOAT OWNER: “Well, there’s Clarence, my deckhand, he’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board. Then there’s the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bacardi rum and a dozen beers every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally.”

IRS AUDITOR: “That’s The guy I’m here here to talk to, the mentally challenged one.”

BOAT OWNER: “That would be me. What would you like to know?”

** California Legislation – California just passed its 28th Amendment proposal through its state legislature. The viability of such a scheme is less important than what they think of us, our rights, and what they really want to do.

It only existed on the drawing board, but I’m still throwing it down for an ID.

      1. Corsairs on the far side with their wings folded. I dunno what model.

        My daddy was there at the time, turning wrenches on those contraptions.

  1. Identify the Aircraft:
    1. Grumman F4F Wildcat
    2. Albatros C.XIV
    3. Arado Ar E.555
    4. Mikoyan MiG-31 Foxhound

  2. Government run grocery stores. I am sure they will be successful, especially with the proposed federal assistance. Gee, we could have long lines for the few loaves of bread just like some other countries.

    TED talks, I used to watch them but haven’t for a few years. The available subject matter just didn’t appeal to me. Perusing the lists of talks it doesn’t look like I have missed all that much.

    28th amendment. That is the amendment where to promote gun safety we have to watch a 20 minute NRA video before we get our federally issued pistol, long gun, or shotgun correct with 1000 rounds of ammunition correct? All of it funded by the savings generated by deporting illegal aliens.

    The Arrado looks cool, with an airframe ahead of the propulsion technology available maybe with a pair of F110 engines.

  3. Government store. I can see it now. Only companies to be purchased from must be minority/female run businesses. Deliveries by only minority/female run businesses. Only minority/female employees allowed.

    Okay, I’m going to stick my neck out there and say, ahem, this is a good idea. If, and only if the politicians, bureaucrats, government employees (including teachers, hwack-ptooie) are served absolutely dead last each day before the refill trucks come, and the said politicians, bureaucrats, government employees (including teachers, hwack-ptooie) can only buy from said store, exclusively, them and their families.

    Otherwise no. I abhor National and International Socialism in all their varied and glorified ways.

    On the other hand, you can damn sure bet these will be the only grocery stores that are actually protected by the police

    1. You know that there will be “special stores” at taxpayer-subsidized prices for party apparatchiks.

      1. If I were you, WSF, I wouldn’t worry about a high credit score. It just has to be high enough to get you a bunk next to the stove at the FEMA reeducation camp.

  4. As to the planes, the Grumman product was too easy to identify, as they look like Grumman products.

    The Mig? Eh, it’s a trumped up Mig-25. Whatever the badge says. Like my Ram is just a Fiat, no matter what you call it.

    And the Arado? Yeah, it would have worked. Good thing the Krauts didn’t have something like that in ’41 instead of all their schnellbombers that weren’t ‘schnell’ in comparison to the fighters that met them.

  5. ** If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in five years. – Milton Friedman
    The Biden crime enterprise would do it faster while raising taxes and printing money to ‘save the sand’.

    1. You know there is only so much sand at the seashore. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and we will all die.

      1. Plenty of sand at the bottom of the ocean, maybe we could entice officials to look there first, save us all a lot of headache.

  6. Saw the beginning of an infotainment news brief, revealing the pro-Trump bias in the FBI. Shut that one down quick, as I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or barf.
