Under the Fedora: Missing Those Pillows, Blackout Futures, Hot Air Countdown, Formally Common Knowledge and Betting vs Cutting

Posted: August 31, 2022 by datechguy in Uncategorized

Bed Bath and Beyond make a big fuss about cancelling Mike Lindell and his My Pillow company for calling out the left on both the election and Jan 6th.

18 months later Mr. Lindell is still around and unwavering in his assertions, as for Bed Bath and Beyond:

Fast-forward to the present, and the former home goods giant is on the verge of financial collapse. In addition to the layoffs and closures, it was also forced to secure some $375 million in loans through Sixth Street Partners, a retailer-friendly lender. Bed Bath & Beyond also said it was prepared to sell off an undisclosed number of stock shares, which sent the share price straight to the gutter Wednesday in premarket trading.

As Dinesh DiSousa put it

I hope they like the bed they made for themselves.

Yesterday I talked about the California Law concerning selling 100% electric cars by 2035. There seems to be one small complication to this plan:

California’s energy overseer warned of blackouts starting Wednesday and urged residents to “avoid using large appliances and charging electric vehicles, and turn off unnecessary lights.”

Now remember this is taking place 12 years before the state’s mandate kicks in.

This is taking place at the same time they are blasting dams to save fish.

This is not going to end well for the state, but I’m sure that there will be a fair amount of people who get rich off the graft before reality kicks in and asserts itself.

In just a few more days Allahpundit will be leaving Hotair. If I recall correctly he’s been there from the start or if not from nearly the start.

There was a time when he would have been worth reading but like many others he was broken badly by Donald Trump and now when I visit hot air I make it a point to bypass any piece with is byline.

I’m sure he will find a place at the Bulwark or some other NeverTrump site where his current brand of “conservatism” will be welcome.

It will be nice to visit the site again and not have to deal with all the tripe that I avoid the MSM for. If I wanted the left’s line I’d be going there in the first place. As for Allahpundit, like Matt Drudge I wish him the best of luck.

What’s the old saying? What did socialists use for light before can also wants those thermostats set no lower than 78 degrees.

Called a Flex Alert, the California Independent System Operator says households should “reduce energy use from 4-9 p.m. when the system is most stressed because demand for electricity remains high and there is less solar energy available.”

“The power grid operator,” the notice says, “expects to call on Californians for voluntary energy conservation via Flex alerts over the long weekend.”

And not drive anywhere, I suppose, if you’re the owner of one of the nearly half-million plug-in EVs registered in the Golden State.

I had to laugh when I saw this headline:

Nobel Prize-winning German Biologist: Multiple Genders Are “Nonsense” and “Unscientific”

Now not to long ago this would not be a headline but a simple statement of fact unworthy of a story in any journal.

It is in fact still a simple statement of fact, but so many people have for their own reason pretended otherwise that the statement of this fact is practically revolutionary.

I suspect the say will come when we will have to purge the left’s nonsense from our society in the same way that Germany needed Denazification.

I suspect it will not be prety.

Finally I was listening to sports radio when they had an ad for Draft kings, the official betting partner of the NFL. They made it a point to mention that you had to be 18 to place a bet.

Think about that for a second. A young lady must be 18 to bet on an NFL game but you don’t have to be 18 for this doctor to cut our your breasts.

Yup this is the Left’s Post Christian America, enjoy!
