Monday roundup

There was a moment of giddiness last November when Squirrel-Hair, with outgoing Indiana governor Pence in tow, struck a deal at Carrier's Indianapolis plant to save 800 jobs set to be transferred to Mexico. Well, pink slips are starting to be issued in a 338-job layoff there. Different reason - the jobs are being automated rather than sent to Mexico -  but the six-month bit of breathing room for middle-aged workers was somewhat, shall we say, briefer than they'd been led to believe when S-H pulled his grandstanding stunt. This is what you get when you elect a president who has never given a microsecond's thought to how the free market works.

Peter Heck at The Resurgent reports on the latest developments on the cultural-rot front:

If anyone is looking for clarification on just how stupid we have allowed ourselves to become, an actual conversation that took place between supposed American adults and that is now making its way around social media, pretty well provides it.
Fair warning, though I have substituted for some terminology in the conversation, it’s nature is raw and rather explicit:
  • Sean McManus: Isn’t trans sex inherently queer? If I were having sex with a transwoman that had a penis, and I stimulated that penis [orally] and [rectally], it would fall under [queer].
  • Shay Serenity: Nope. If you’re a cishet (cisgender heterosexual) man having sex with a woman you are having straight sex.
  • Sean McManus: Something about {orally stimulating a penis] just feels queer to me though
  • Sasha Tourk: Well, it’s not. It’s a woman’s penis. It would only define as gay if you were a woman as well.
As a father of three young children, I shutter to think all of the various versions of “the talk” I’m going to have to have with my kids. The days of an evening chat or a sitting-on-the-end-of-the-bed conversation about the birds and the bees are long past. I’m fully anticipating needing to prepare an entire lecture series that spans a couple months.
The first two weeks will be spent breaking down new vocabulary – stupid words society has recently concocted and pretends are real things when they’re not. Things like “cisgender,” “heteronormativity,” and “androgyne non-binary.”
Then we’ll have to spend a few days on what is offensive and what is not offensive terminology. When I grew up, “queer” was a derogatory term that demeaned effeminate boys. And while I think it can still be used that way, it is also employed intentionally by some as their self-professed sexual identity.
And for the love of Pete, I’m going to have to make sure I include a thorough explanation of the new pretend-reality that says sexual attractions are innate, inborn, and unchanging (and how it should be illegal and regarded as child abuse to attempt to change them through counseling), while sex (or gender) is a mere social construct that can be fluid and change daily depending on mood.
Mayonnaise-Hair's IT guy's hard drive is now in FBI hands:

FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.
Tech millionaire and homosexual activist Tim Gill is the point man in the faith-haters' push to stamp out the religious-freedom-legislation movement, saying he intends to "punish the wicked."

Memo to Palestinians: If you don't want metal detectors at the Temple Mount, then don't be shooting Israeli soldiers stationed there.
