#6388: What a lovely day

Not only was the weather ridiculously nice, but we got a couple errands done and had a good time doing it.

After my errands were done we took Mrs. Fungus' car over to the dealership to get an airbag recall done. It had a Takata airbag in it, and we've been bombarded with mailings about it, and today was Der Tag. Now perhaps we can get on with our lives.

We then went to take her to a doctor appointment, and arrived an hour early. This doc was near a local historical museum, so we spent our hour there, looking around. Very pleasant.

Doc done, we had a nice late lunch at a sit-down restaurant, picked up her car, and came home.

Lovely day.

So, lets start with the transgender insanity, shall we?

So, this:
On Sunday, two women competing in the women's sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles wound up finishing second and third, losing to a biologically male Canadian professor who identifies as a woman.
And this is how it will be. Denninger nicely sums up the issue, saying, "You gals like this horsecrap? Fine with me. If you were born with a vagina you'll never win another competitive sporting event."

It's true. The male physique is more athletically capable than the female physique is. Men are stronger, faster, and more able to take physical abuse than women are. That is why men's and women's sports have always been separate.

But if you let "biological men who identify as women" participate in female sporting events, the biological women will lose, every time.

And holy shit this person belongs in an asylum.

This is a "biological woman who identifies as a man", who takes it a step further and identifies as a dog. She's wearing a dog mask in nearly all the pictures, but there are pictures where you can see her breasts, and one where it's obvious that she's wearing a codpiece.

You know what? I want the culture I was promised when I was growing up, the one where all this lunacy is entirely out of the question and society is still polite. Shit.

Apparently the Roseanne re-reboot is very meh. Sounds like a real keeper, and YES THAT IS SARCASM.

All we have to do to eliminate the "problem" of nuclear waste is to recycle the stuff.

Look at all the NPCs!

Considering that Democrats are who benefit from vote fraud, this isn't surprising. Which is why Democrats always stand against eliminating it. You need a photo ID to buy Sudafed, but not to vote.

I wish voting had the same requirements as gun ownership.

Bruce Rauner got a "B" even though Illinois is a shithole. Reason: he tried to reform things, but of course Mike Madigan stopped it.

* * *

Rauner's opponent wants to do away with Illinois' flat tax and replace it with a "progressive" tax system. That's where you're taxed at a higher rate if you make more money. Like the federal system, with tax brackets.

This is, of course, going to hit the middle class the hardest. The super-rich won't notice the difference, and the poor already don't pay taxes, but "...the typical family in Illinois making just over $79,000 would pay an additional $2,500 to $3,500 in income taxes." $79,000 is right smack dab in the middle of the middle class. Right now, the tax rate is something like 4.5%; with Pritzger's scheme, of course it'll be much higher.

Pritzker is the guy who had all the toilets removed from his house so that he could avoid paying property tax on it. And by the way, the guy had plenty of non-union laborers working on renovations to that house, even though--as a Democrat--he naturally schmoozes the unions. After all, when it comes to his own home, it's his own money he's spending, and he doesn't want to pay more just to employ union labor!

Like all Democrats, Pritzker is a hypocrite, so that's not surprising. But his tax scheme will result in the wholesale devastation of the state's finances.

Anyway, that's a day. Tomorrow's another one. Could be worse.
