    How to break an anti-woke brain: Author Bethany Mandel wrote a book on the evil woke indoctrination that is going on in this country. During an interview to promote her book, Mandel claimed that "only seven percent of Americans consider themselves very liberal, and probably fewer consider themselves woke." The interviewer then asked a simple question. "What does that mean to you? Would you mind defining 'woke' because this has come up a couple times, and I just want to make sure we are on the same page." Now remember, this is a conservative who wrote a BOOK about woke indoctrination. Her answer: "So . . . I mean . . . woke is . . .sort of . . . the idea that . . .uh . . .I . . .this is going to be one of those moments that goes viral . . .I mean, woke is something that is very hard to define, I spent an entire chapter defining it . . . it is sort of the understanding that we need to retotal . . totally reimagine and rean . . re . . . reduce society in order to create hierarchies of oppression . . . um . . . sorry . . .it's hard to explain in a 15 second soundbite." (At that point she had been trying to define it for 40 seconds.) And there are a few possibilities for this unusual reply. 1) She's a moron, and can't even put basic concepts into words. Unlikely, since she did just write a book. 2) She really has no idea what "woke" means. "Reduce society to create hierarchies of oppression?" That sounds like the word salad that Miss Teen South Carolina might give when asked about educational problems in America. Again unlikely because she did write a book about it, and even a minimally intelligent author is going to have access to a dictionary. 3) (most likely) Because when she started to formulate her answer, the things that came to the front of her mind were things she couldn't say on the air. "Well, it's letting the gays have their own . . . can't say that. Hmm. And it's teaching people that blacks were oppressed in the past . . gonna look like a racist if I say that. It's letting kids watch trans . . . . dang, the last interviewer hammered me on that because I said I liked M*A*S*H. I can't give the real definition, because I'm not going to sell any books that way. I need dog whistles! But I can't think of any! DAMN YOU INTERVIEWER!"

    Republicans seem to be saying "WOKE" with such glee.....like they had been given permission to say the N-word without consequences.

    I suspect the fire may push some Rostov officials out upper story windows as well.

    Well, somehow the FSB building in Rostov on Don caught on fire. This is just east of Ukraine, on the coast of the Sea of Azov. According to the Russians, there was an electrical short that ignited stored fuel (really). https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-64975202 I guess it's nice that they've cracked down on the unauthorized smoking that has cause so many fires & explosions recently.

    That's a Qualcomm chip there - could be the main chip, or at least the cellular modem. You'd need a few million dollars and some pretty stringent NDAs to get any documentation from Qualcomm on how to program it...

    No what the Ds say about Trump's Tax cuts is that they lowered revenues and increased the deficit and that only absolute morons would believe in "trickle down economics."

    So I watched the video. Quick summary - Guy goes to pick up an antique car on a trailer with his electric truck. He is 100% successful and gets the antique car back to his place safe and sound. But the truck lost range faster than he expected. So a successful pickup of an antique car is a "TOTAL DISASTER." (Note all-caps.) I bet that success ruined his weekend too. Thanks for another example of the ridiculous hyperbole of the right wing.
