Monday afternoon mish mash

“Monday morning mish mash” would have been more alliterative, but we do what we can.

How corrupt is Lois Lerner and the swamp-like federal system from which she emerged?  This corrupt.

How crazy has the gender obsession at America’s institutions of higher education gotten?  This crazy.

How horrible was the misbegotten Obamacare launch?  This horrible.

Could it be that some Europeans are realizing that socialism is a societal dead-end?  Why, yes it is possible that they are.

Is it possible for you — not “you” collectively, but “you,” the individual reading these words — to change our political culture?  Yes, but it requires some organization and work.

And finally, not a question, but a promise:  If you go into your marriage knowing that marriage isn’t for you, you will be happy.

If there are any questions you’d like to ask, or answers you’d like to give, here’s your Open Thread.

    Huh, so Cornell’s Big Red Bear mascot has to have a gender identity? Worse, the article quoted members from three separate campus LGBT organizations who took offense to its “heterosexual male” identity. It’s a wonder they have any time to study.
    The perfect bookend to it is the marriage post. Wonderful advice: “Marriage isn’t for you. It’s not about you. Marriage is about the person you married.” A sentiment those Cornell students who are insisting that their gender identity be present, acknowledged and respected in something so trivial as a mascot will likely never understand.

    I read the article about Naimi, the petulant, gender-obsessed student who likes to be referred to as “they.” What does it think it is, a king/queen or the three persons of the Trinity? (It would have no idea what I’m talking about.)

    Ran across this on the internet. VERY interesting reading from a personal perspective of soldier as he fought in WW2, until his eventual death in combat. If you are interested in WW2, as I am, you will enjoy.
     
    Also below is an Army history of the occupation of Germany post WW2, an era about which most know little, due to lack of coverage. Everyone so glad war was over, they just wanted to forget about it and get on with interrupted lives. Although a teenager at the time, an era about which I know very little.
