Mandy's Tue Blog: Sanctioned Homeless Camps Are Not the Best Idea

SANCTIONED HOMELESS CAMPS ARE A BAD IDEA And yet the City of Denver is about to embrace this idea and establish sanctioned homeless camps. Christopher Rufo has written extensively on the homeless problem on the west coast and he joins me to talk about where this has been tried. Find some his work here and here and here. Find his recent article on sanctioned homeless camps here. He did an EXCELLENT white paper on Seattle's homeless problem here.

AND SANCTIONED CAMPS WILL BE HERE NEXT WEEK At least according to this article in the Denver Post.

IS THIS PROOF THAT COLLEGES ARE ANTI-AMERICAN? A new survey shows that kids become MUCH less patriotic after they go to college. Hmmm, I wonder why? If there is any hope for our country we have to get people who believe in this great American experiment in the classroom at the college level NOW.

UH-OH, IS HERD IMMUNITY EVEN POSSIBLE WITH CORONAVIRUS? This is very, very bad news if it's accurate. Spanish doctors are saying that in their country where they had a HUGE outbreak, they are not seeing high levels of coronavirus antibodies. This means the antibodies may not last very long. This is very, very bad news indeed.

AND YET I'M NOT SUPER EXCITED ABOUT A RUSHED VACCINE I have to say after the miserable reaction I had to the Shingles vaccine, I am not going to jump in line first for a coronavirus vaccine. Especially because of what I just wrote in the above paragraph. The federal government is throwing $1.6 BILLION behind a vaccine maker who has something in the pipeline and asking them to try and get it ready for next spring. Does anyone else have concerns that this isn't going to end well?

NOW ACTORS CAN ONLY PLAY CHARACTERS EXACTLY LIKE THEMSELVES And Halle Berry is apologizing for CONSIDERING the role of a transgendered man. Too bad she is cancelled now. I don't think these people understand what "acting" means. And that during Shakespeare's time all the roles were played by men.

AND LIN MANUEL-MIRANDA IS APOLOGIZING FOR NOW MAKING HIS HIT MUSICAL ABOUT SLAVERY At least that's how I read this. Let everyone apologize away! Unless and until Lin Manuel-Miranda donates ALL the profits from Hamilton to BLM, he is cancelled too. Oh my goodness, this IS FUN! Cancel everything!

ONE OF THE NATION'S LEADING MINORITY CHARTER SCHOOLS JUST MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE And it seems simple enough. KIPP Academies, whose network of charter schools serves mostly minority students in areas where they lag behind, has decided it's motto since 1994, Work Hard, Be Nice, is a nod to white supremacy. How else could you interpret this statement:

“We are retiring ‘Work hard. Be nice.’ as Kipp’s national slogan; it diminishes the significant effort to dismantle systemic racism, places value on being compliant and submissive, supports the illusion of meritocracy, and does not align with our vision of students being free to create the future they want.”

Got that? Now working hard and being nice "supports the illusion of meritocracy". I'm going to say something unpopular, but if we decide working hard and being nice are somehow only for white people, black people will never really succeed. And it won't be racisms fault, it will be the racist assumption that when tried, they don't work. Because I can assure you they do.

DON'T MESS WITH THIS MAMA CROW

A MAN AND HIS ROOF

THIS DUDE IS SELLING DOG FOOD BY EATING NOTHING BUT FOR 30 DAYS That's it. That's what this guy is doing.

WALT DISNEY IS ALL KINDA WOKE And I'm not one to say that Walt Disney the man is spinning in his grave, but I think he might be. Disney set up his company to bring joy and delight to adults and children. I'm not sure having a woke documentary series on Colin Kaepernick is what he had in mind, but that's what his company is getting ready to roll out. I'm genuinely interested to see it though, and see how well it does.

TREAT MASK SCOFFLAWS LIKE DRUNK DRIVERS? That's what one scientist says we should do. He says we should treat them with the same disdain that we treat drunk drivers. At this point in my life I don't know anyone who still drinks and drives so I'm not sure what to do here. And didn't we have a thing a few weeks ago that said shaming people doesn't work?

AND NOW, A GUY DRESSES UP AS HIS DOG'S FAVORITE DOG TOY

AS IF THINGS ARE BAD ENOUGH IN SPORTS, HOW ABOUT A LITTLE ANTI SEMITISM FOR YOU? And this comes in the form of a quote from Hitler that was retweeted by Eagles Wide Receiver DeSean Jackson. Imagine if another player had tweeted out a quote from George Wallace about black people, Mr. Jackson. It seems he is having trouble understanding why people are upset, as he also tweeted:

“Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way I have no hatred in my heart towards no one!! Equality Equality.”

Got that? You just took HITLER the wrong way.

IS ANYONE ELSE DYING FOR THIS TO BE TRUE? And of course I mean that scumbag child trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has sex tapes from Jeffrey Epstein's house of powerful men? Anyone? Anyone? You lie if you say no. I want to see head's roll. And if that means heads of state, I'm cool with that.
