  1. At 11am it’s 29f here in the Charlotte area, and that feels warm compared to yesterday morning when we were near 10F.

    1. Duke were talking about possible rolling blackouts. Our cable/home internet have been down for three days now. I’m convinced they took it down purposefully to keep people from using too many electronic devices/TV.

      Almost above freezing now. Yesterday was same as you at around 10F at this time yesterday.

      1. I’ve had no power interruptions. In fact, I moved to this area in 1990, and I’ve never been without power for more than 30 minutes to an hour, even through the ice storms etc.

        It’s criminal what’s being done now. And it’s the government that are the criminals.

          1. Merry Christmas Jaybo!
            Get help for your mental illness.

            And by the way, I’ve never owned a silverado, green, red, blue, purple, or any other color.

            Just say the word and I’ll get directions in your hands. I know who you are.

  2. Jim Crow Is Back: UNC Introduces New Segregated Research FellowshipThe cutting edge of contemporary leftist culture.December 26, 2022 by Robert Spencer 5 Comments
    14×420.jpgThe more things change, the more they stay the same. Before he became the hero of the Watergate hearings, Sen. Sam Ervin (D-N.C.) was best known as a staunch segregationist, so staunch that it would warm his chilly old heart were he able to see that, 37 years after his death, segregation is back in North Carolina.
    The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), a far-Left stronghold in a generally more conservative state, is introducing a new research fellowship that is open only to students of the preferred races. Those whose skin color is the wrong shade need not apply. How ol’ Senator Sam, who helped organize resistance to Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the 1954 Supreme Court decision that desegrated the schools, would be chuckling over his beer!
    Ibram X. Kendi and Nicole Hannah-Jones should be enraged, but they won’t be. In fact, they probably think this is a fine and positive development: the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday that UNC, “whose affirmative action program, along with that of Harvard University, is under review by the Supreme Court—sponsors the Fellowship for Exploring Research in Nutrition, which accepts applications exclusively from students who are ‘Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC).’”
    That’s right: No Irish Need Apply, just as in the bad old early days of the republic, and no one else, either, if your melanin content is insufficient. Segregation is back in the Tar Heel State, and back with a vengeance.
    The website for “FERN: Fellowship for Exploring Research in Nutrition” explains that this is necessary because bad nutrition is racist: “Among the most pressing public health problems today are childhood and adulthood obesity, which contribute to chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes, and can lead to early death.”
    You guessed it: racial minorities are hardest hit: “Obesity disproportionately impacts Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and other historically marginalized communities.”
    However, little to nothing has been done, which UNC apparently believes is because the researchers are not generally members of these racial minority groups: “Yet people from these communities are traditionally underrepresented among researchers working to develop, research, and evaluate food and nutrition policies to address obesity.”
    White researchers apparently don’t care about black people with poor nutrition: “Increased representation in food policy research is critical for developing effective, equitable, comprehensive, and culturally competent policies that address nutrition-related health disparities.”
    The Free Beacon notes that this racist, exclusionary program, “which UNC Chapel Hill announced last week on its website, comes as UNC Chapel Hill and Harvard await a verdict from the Supreme Court over a lawsuit from Students for Fair Admissions, a nonprofit opposed to affirmative action. The group argues that both schools are violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans racial discrimination by the recipients of federal funds, and that UNC Chapel Hill, as a public university, is also violating the 14th Amendment, which bans racial discrimination by the government.”
    The case seems clear-cut. But since it’s easy to find judges who believe that this sort of racial discrimination is altogether justified and necessary, it’s not at all clear that the verdict will be sane.
    Edward Blum of Students for Fair Admissions enunciated the obvious: “It is indisputable this UNC student research program is racially exclusive and therefore is in violation of our nation’s civil rights laws.” Yes, but will anyone in power care? I have a dream that one day they will.
    “I have a dream,” a man once said, “that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” He didn’t say anything in this famous speech about North Carolina, but clearly, we are not there yet. “I have a dream,” the same man said, “that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
    How quaint. Come on, man! A dream like that is so 1963. This is 2022, and we have awakened. The UNC course is the cutting edge of contemporary American culture. Watch for imitators.×200.jpg

    1. Perhaps there will be unwritten requirements, but the links in the story to the website that the writer states exclude whites is not accurate. From the website linked:

      Students who wish to apply to FERN must meet all the following criteria:

      Undergraduate students with 2nd– or 3rd-year academic standing in Spring 2023, who will graduate later than June 2023The successful applicant will demonstrate how their participation in FERN will increase diversity along all dimensions in the field of nutrition. We particularly encourage first-generation college students and other students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to apply.Expressed interest in food and nutrition researchExpressed interest in pursuing further education following completion of undergraduate degree. Applicants should be interested in pursuing advanced degrees or credentials in public health or nutrition — e.g., Master of Public Health (MPH), Master of Science (MS), Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Public Health (DrPH). This opportunity is specifically for applicants interested in graduate school, not medical school or other health professional schools.”

      No mention of whites only anywhere on that webpage. Not one place. Just a declaration that minorities are underrepresented in the nutrition fields, and an encouragement that they should apply.

Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."

David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."

Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
