Destroying women’s sports

There are millions of dollars in scholarships to be won by athletes. Men who are not fast enough to win as men are identifying and competing as women. Biological women are being beaten by these men.

 I’ve lost four women’s state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to male runners. I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two male runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again.

That’s a devastating experience. It tells me that I’m not good enough; that my body isn’t good enough; and that no matter how hard I work, I am unlikely to succeed, because I’m a woman.

How can the Democrats claim to be feminists while they are busy destroying women’s sports? Soon, there will be no women’s sports. It will be men, and men who claim to be women that are winning everything. Women will once again be relegated to the kitchen.

How does THAT make the left pro-woman?

Faking climate change

There are stories everywhere about subtropical storm Ana. Each of these stories mentions that this is an early storm, that this is the seventh consecutive year that a named storm occurred prior to the start of the storm season, and that there have been more storms than “normal.”

and it is misleading.

Why it’s misleading is that “subtropical” storms were not included in named storms until 2002. What does this mean? In the 19 hurricane seasons that subtropical storms have been added to the naming system, there have been an average of 16 named storms per year, with only 4 of those seasons seeing fewer than 12 storms. In the 19 seasons prior to 2002, there were an average of 11 named storms per year, with ten of those seasons having fewer than 12 storms.

So why did the criteria for naming storms change? If you look at the statistics for named storms, something jumps out at you. The number of storms drastically increases, beginning in 1995. What changed in 1995? Was it global warming?

Nope. The director of the National Hurricane Center, Doctor Bob Sheets, retired in 1995. The director of the NHC sets the criteria by which storms are classified. Politics, or science?

You decide.

The Big Guy

Remember when the left said that Trump was Putin’s stooge? Remember when Biden cancelled the Keystone pipeline in order to save the environment? Do you also recall how Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukranian energy company, even though he has no experience with oil, doesn’t even speak the language, and is completely unqualified for the job?

So explain to me how it is that Biden waives sanctions so that a Russian oil company owned by Vladimir Putin can build a pipeline. Was this because Trump was a Russian stooge, or was it to save the environment, or perhaps it was because ten percent goes to the big guy?


The story is that honey is contaminated with nuclear radiation. OMG! Panic. The press loves them a scare story. Radiation is scary because most people don’t understand it, can’t sense it, and know it can kill. Look at the facts, and understand them. Then you can see how ridiculous it is:

The highest level of contamination was detected to be 19.1 becquerels per kilogram. A becquerel is one decaying atom per second. So in this case, there were 19.1 atoms decaying per second in each kilogram of honey. The average American eats half a kilogram of honey per year.

The atom that is responsible for this detected radiation is Radiocesium, or Cesium-137, which has a half life of 30.17 years. Nearly all of it decays by Beta emission (emitting an electron) into Barium-137m, which itself decays 153 seconds later by emitting a fast photon in the form of a gamma ray.

How much Cesium-137 is 19 becquerels? The average human contains 100 Becquerels of radioactive materials per kilogram, mainly due to Potassium 40 and Carbon 14. These are natural, background radiation sources, and are always around. In fact, there are a host of things in your home that are far more radioactive than this honey (source– PDF warning):

  • Coffee 1000 Bq/kg
  • Phosphate fertilizer 5000 Bq/kg
  • Ionization Smoke detector 3000 Bq

Anything that has Potassium and Carbon in it will contain radioactive isotopes of those two elements. Even the air itself. In short, 1 kg of honey is far more likely to present a danger of diabetes than it is a danger of radiation. This is just another example of sensationalist journalism.

But science! In this case, the press is using ignorance to scare people into reading their pseudoscientific nonsense.

Woke whore

The New York Times published a piece by a prostitute who complains that she has been consenting to sexual and nonsexual contact against her will. She gave a handjob to a boy when she was 12- because he asked her to. Then she made money for three years while in her early 20’s, working as a dominatrix prostitute, saying that she did it because it paid more than food service. She even admits that she chose that line of work of her own free will.

She complains that human touch now repulses her. I just don’t feel sorry for you- you CHOSE to be a whore.

Global Warning?

In 1959, the US Government drilled some ice cores in search of a location to put a missile base in Greenland. They found plants frozen into the ice, which indicates that Greenland was ice free recently, in climate terms. At some point within the last million years, possibly only several hundred thousand years ago, Greenland was ice free.

Now, to humans, a million years seems like a long time, but that is relatively recent in climate and geological terms. In fact, atmospheric CO2 was lower a million years ago than it is now. This indicates to me that climate is cyclical, and has little to do with humans adding CO2 to the atmosphere.

Argument from authority

So I was at work, when one of the staff doctors came into the unit to ask about a patient. Now, the rule in the hospital is that masks are required at all times. That rule is really only obeyed in the patient areas of the hospital, and everyone in our work center was maskless. Except this doctor.

He came in wearing TWO masks (which no one in the entire hospital really does). He approaches me and asks, “Do you have a mask?”

As I am putting it on, I told him, “Just so you know, I am fully vaccinated.”

He begins chewing me out in front of my subordinates, tells me that he is a virologist, and being vaccinated doesn’t matter, yada yada. Now, I am open to new information, and I really wanted to know why the vaccine didn’t work to prevent transmission, but I also knew that he would take any inquiry as an argument. Arguing with a doctor while standing in the hospital where you are employed is the fast track to getting fired even if you are right and the doctor is wrong, and knowing that the easiest way to disarm someone trying to argue with you is to agree with them, I replied with: “Really? I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks for letting me know. I really thought the vaccine was the solution.”

Mollified, the doctor left after presenting his argumentum ab auctoritate. As soon as he left, I looked up his license and his CV. It turns out that none of his education involved any more virology than any other med school students, and his medical school education was 12 years old. Not only that, his specialty is interventional cardiology. It wasn’t enough to make him feel important that he is a surgeon- he has to lie to make himself feel more impressive.

He lied in order to present himself as an authority on a subject that he didn’t really know a lot about. I was in medical school more recently than he was, and my classes on infectious disease was more current than his. Now that I know him to be a liar, I will struggle to believe him if he even tries to give me the correct time. Asshat.

My subordinates told me that he routinely abuses the staff- especially the males. He seems to enjoy using his power in the hospital to embarrass and belittle the staff, who have to take it if they want to keep their jobs. He is largely disliked throughout the hospital by the nurses, techs, and other medical personnel.

He is just an over educated blowhard that was probably bullied as a kid, and is now taking it out on everyone.
