Government as welfare

Government used to be about laying down the rules for a civil society. We found the rules for getting on with each other. In the West we made it so the rules covered how we produce and sold things to each other. But they were the rules which we amended from time to time.

We didn’t prescribe what each was owed by each other. That is now changed. We now have governments which decide what each must give to others to be “fair”. And since wealth is what we create better than anyone else, what we must give to each other.

The wealthy have ordained what the middle class must give to those with less, but while leaving the wealthy more or less alone.

Why climate models work like a charm

I saw this post on Powerline, Why climate models don’t work. Absurd. Of course they work, just not in telling you what the temperature will be some time in the future. What they are for is to give the patina of legitimacy to the forecasts of doom (I won’t say “impending” doom since it is always years into the future).

The pretence that we are avoiding some doomsday scenario is their entire intent. Just because nothing is ever accurately predicted is nothing since it is always in the future that these forecasts are made and no one ever looks at past predictions.

Look at Watts Up with That to see a bit of reality:

There are even people who believe that the American election results were legit!!

Paul Pelosi and Brittany Higgins in the news

These are my two favourite stories of the moment mostly because you cannot get a story written that presents the “truth’, only what the left wants you to believe. Every story is told from the political perspective of the writer and the publication in which it appears. For example:

“After a ‘knock and announce,’ the front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi. The 82-year-old did not immediately declare an emergency or try to leave his home,” the NBC “Today Show” report explains. Instead, Mr. Pelosi “began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police.”

Maybe. Same with Brittany. I know what I prefer to believe but you don’t find it it the news but you can find it in places.
