3rd Sunday in Advent

nebraskaenergyobserver

Tomorrow is the third Sunday in Advent, and we have been so wrapped up in the world that we have not managed to speak of it. Well, we are hardly alone, although that is no excuse, nor do I believe in them. More to the point, neither does God. So it is time to step back and think about the wonder of what will transpire in just over a week.

For those of us whose churches use the Revised Common Lectionary (most liturgical churches, including Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, and others) this is the first reading tomorrow:

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11
61:1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners;

61:2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s…

Bonfire of the academies: Two professors on how leftist intolerance is killing higher education

PUMABydesign001's Blog

A brilliant post in this morning’s Washington Examiner written by college professors Heather Heying, a professor of biology “in exile” from Evergreen College and Bret Weinstein also removed from Evergreen State College because, as he was informed by the faculty, they did not believe that they could save him from rabid, barking moonbats (my emphasis on the latter).

Weinstein’s cardinal sin was that he vocally “objected to a planned “Day of Absence” in which white people were asked to leave campus on April 12.The response came quickly, was uncivil and evil. How dare this biology professor not behave as demanded, correction ordained by fascists pretending to be freedom fighters and because of Weinstein expressed his concern, in one instant, he instantly became odd man out a pariah. Those who called for a “Day without whitey,” I meant a “Day of Absence ‘aka no white people allowed day’…

Caracas on the Thames

Sunset near Trafalgar Square, London, UK

So there sits Britain, a bit more than half of the population bestirred themselves to extricate themselves from the EU to a fair amount of excitement on both sides of the pond. An excellent move, but now what? Theodore Dalrymple has a view, and it is a bleak one. It’s one I don’t completely agree with, but I see the same signs. I merely hope and pray that the Britain that has been preserved through the centuries will manage to bestir itself one more time. Whether that will happen is very problematical.

And the economic auguries for Britain are indeed poor, though not only, or even principally, because of the European Union’s hostility. The fact is that Britain is unlikely to be able to take any advantage of life outside the European straitjacket because its own political class is itself in favour of…

Reforging American Greatness

nebraskaenergyobserver

We’ve spoken of the things we do here many times, and it’s nice to have another voice. David L. Hunter raises his voice in The American Spectator. He makes his case well, and I agree with his diagnoses. While I see merit in his remedies, they are indeed far better than what we are doing, they are, to me at least, much too government-centric. In my opinion, we need to unleash the beast that built this country, devil take the hindmost, not simply give it a longer leash. The leash itself is a large part of the root problem. Still, this is very worthwhile.

Politically, what’s the definition of insanity? Electing the same types of people doing the same things, but expecting a different outcome.  (Thus, perhaps the main reason Donald Trump was elected president, in 2016, is neatly explained.)  More to the point, on an economic level, what’s the definition of insanity—other than doubling-down on what has been done previously? Thanks to President Trump, and the promise of Republican tax…
