Progressives: Recycling Crap Since Karl Marx

earth-moss-ball100% recycled dingle berries

I’m so old I remember being lectured about all of us having “more in common than we have differences” and “why don’t we all just learn to get along.” That is apparently now considered old school thinking; new school is “let’s celebrate our differences instead of our sameness!” Honestly, I can’t keep up but it seems that this year many universities will be holding separate graduations based on whatever identity makes you feel special: race, sexuality, country of origin, and even socioeconomic status. But for the rhetorical nature of the question I would ask “who’s being regressive now?”

So, separate graduation ceremonies it will be: lavender…pink, green, blue, red, purple, gold, black and brown. Find the group identity that makes you feel special. Apparently we’ve been transported back to the future and using the really, really old school standard of ‘separate but equal.’ Progressives affinity for recycling is why this old (published 30 years ago) Doonesbury comic is not only classic but, as long as there are progressives afoot, will be evergreen:

“I don’t get it, Campbell. The Black students now have separate dorms, fraternities, cafeteria tables, student center, studies program and graduation. After 25 years of intensive, progressive action in pursuit of racial justice at this college, we’ve managed to produce a fully segregated campus. *sigh* What a legacy I’ve created. And to think I marched with Dr. King in Selma.”

“So what is it now?”

“Um…the kids want their own water fountains.”

Oh, and Happy Earth Day from the people who’ve been recycling crap since, well, Karl Marx. Here’s all you need to know to participate in the latest National Holy Day of Obligation:

P.S.Not one single disastrous environmental prediction has come true in the last 50 years. Recycle that.

Feather Day Special

A new slant on feather day (is that a racist comment?)

AKA “How It Started”

How it’s going:


“Relax all you narrow minded religious bigots. It’s not like we’re coming into classrooms to talk your children into being gay/transexuals.”

We’re thinking more along the lines of a drag queen satanic goddesses. Any more questions about that slippery slope “fallacy”?

NOTE: gradually regaining strength. Had my first cup of coffee in over a week this morning, so that’s a good sign!
