#1 Librarians are an anachronism in the internet age.

My local library is where poor people go to access the internet.

Apart from young children, hardly anyone borrows books.

#2 I'm getting fatigued by the phrase "people of color". Or at least the nonsense that seems to tag along with it.

#4 Well, when a state like Pee Aye raises its gas tax, it's microseconds before the money that was supposed to be spent on fixing roads gets re-purposed to "libraries and Pre-K..."

#9 I notice that she (presuming she identifies as female...) classifies everybody by race (or rather skin color) *FIRST* and everything else is secondary.

#10 "I have a dream 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."

Apparently, that statement is no longer operative.

One of the great things about America is we built a country that transcended tribes, blood and soil. Call it a meta-tribe if you want. But anyone could join by putting up their hand and saying, "I believe in the Constitution and will defend it from all enemies, foreign and bureaucratic".

But the Democrats and the Left (redundancy alert!) have spent the last few decades playing identity politics where your skin color, genitals, religion or sexual preferences matter more than being an American. Sadly, they have been quite successful which leads to the social chaos and stupidity we see today. Nice work, guys!
