When I teach math I always tell students they need to know what they know. They always think that’s stupid.

Then I ask them 1/4+1/4 and get blank looks. I ask them 3/4+2/4 and get blank looks. I ask them .4+.75 and get blank looks.

Then I ask them what a quarter plus a quarter is. They all know  it’s a 1/2 dollar or $.50. I ask them 3 quarters plus 2 quarters, they know it’s 5 quarters or $1 and a quarter or $1.25. They also all know that 40 cents plus 75 cents is $1.15.

They didn’t know what they knew. If you’re in a car and ask someone how long it’ll take to get where you’re going they’ll look at the speedometer, see 60mph, look at how far, 60 miles, and say 1 hour. If you ask them the same question on a math test you’ll get 60 hours, 1/2 hour, 30 miles and 45mph as answers. True story.

Let’s see what we know that we don’t know we know!

 

Unknown politicians always do better than known politicians!

Stooksbury spent precisely $0 on his campaign and has never been seen in public. Jon Ossoff had the entire national Democratic Party pulling out the stops for him, and flooded Atlanta television with ten million dollars in advertising. Drastically improving on the Stooksbury numbers should be no dazzling feat.(Although, somewhat hilariously, Stooksbury actually got more total votes than Ossoff, 124,917 to Ossoff’s 124,893. Granted, special elections have lower turnout, but good grief.)”

Heh.

 

This one we all knew that we knew but our fine political and media betters are still pretending they didn’t know what we all knew.

The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS:

Yeah, that ain’t so much Blockbuster!!!!! as yawn, we all knew that. But wait, there’s still more!!!!!!! (we all knew)

No surprise there. What is shocking is the FBI’s apparent involvement in the effort to smear Trump with false rumors:

Wait, you mean Hillary’s Bitches were going after her opponents!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, we watched that exact thing happen last November, December, January and stopped talking about it in February because there were so many other lies the FBI was promulgating that old ones were pushed off the headlines.

 

Muslim nations think we’re nitwits and screw with us every chance they get! We all know that but we’re supposed to pretend not, because those nations have lots of oil which means they can afford lots of politicians and ‘journalists’.

A Libyan terror suspect imprisoned in the UK was put in charge of guarding David Cameron on an official visit to Tripoli in 2011, it emerged last night.

That’s the same as Iran constantly putting assholes involved in holding American hostages, making terror war and other murderously asshole actions in charge of negotiations with the west.

 

Let’s Common Sense and Wonder for a minute.

 

Lefties let their politics rule every aspect of their lives and feel that they can ignore every aspect of polite society in furtherance of their politics is something we all know but we’re supposed to ignore.

A southern California high school teacher who served as student body faculty adviser stepped down from that role after allegedly rigging student elections — and apparently against conservative candidates.
Principal Mick Wager emailed parents of students at Vista Murrieta High School on June 16 saying the company that handled the elections confirmed fraudulent votes altered the outcomes of the races for 2019 class president, 2019 secretary and 2018 class president, the Press-Enterprise said.

Fire that asshole. Never allow her in any position of authority ever. Take away her ant farm.

 

Is Vietnam run by less murderously commie dictators?

I knew they were a commie dictatorship but, since they murdered everybody they thought by be against them long ago, I have to wonder if they might have become less murderous.

A Vietnamese dissident blogger with dual French citizenship arrived in Paris on Sunday after he was stripped of his birth nationality by authorities in the one-party state and deported.
Former mathematics lecturer Pham Minh Hoang was put on a plane to Paris late Saturday, weeks after his Vietnamese citizenship was revoked — a rare move that has sparked outrage among critics of the communist government who accuse it of quashing dissent by any means available.

Kicking him out is a lot nicer than actions murderous commie dictatorships usually employ. I mean, they’re not imprisoning him as a mobile “organ-donor” farm or working him to death in some “work-camp” or just putting a bullet in his head and dumping him on his front stoop for his kids to find in the morning on their way to school.

Interesting.

 

Something we all knew but we’re supposed to pretend we don’t, Prince Charles is an ignorant fool!

Robert Colvile’s excellent article on Prince Charles’s misunderstanding of the causes of African poverty provides a good opportunity to take a closer look at Africa’s economic history.

African poverty was not caused by colonialism, capitalism or free trade

Yeah, Africa’s problems stem from many things.

I’d say one of the biggest was creating countries full of enemies. Rwanda is the most extreme example of that, but look at Kenya. One tribe is in charge of the army, another is in charge of the air force. The Masai, who were the baddest asses around before the Europeans showed up, are out of power and treated poorly. The rest of the tribes hate them and have hated them for centuries.

Another cause is that we give $billions to countries that go to the rulers who use it to buy palaces, Mercedes and tanks, not wells or adequate roads or power distribution.  Vicious, murderous warlords masquerading as gov’ts are what keeps Africa down along with cynical assholes who pay them off to get at the natural resources like diamonds, gold and all the other things Africa has in abundance. It’s cheaper to buy an African warlord than to do the same thing in Europe or the Americas or even Asia in many cases.

 

This one bothers me. We all know that Che was a horrible racist and he was Fidel’s buddy, but everybody pretends Cuba is not very racist as well as murderously commie.

Castrogonia is one of the most profoundly racist countries on earth, but rarely does this issue surface in the world’s press.

According to Castro regime census figures, somewhere around 60 percent of Cubans today self-identify as “white.”  But that percentage is probably much lower.  The discrepancy between facts and the Castro census is widely acknowledged…

So, the real truth is the majority of Cubans today are blacks or mulattoes.  Yet, despite the high percentage of Afro-Cubans in the population, nearly all of the top posts in Cuba’s oligarchy and in the Castro economic monopoly are held by whites.

A disproportionate number of Afro-Cubans live in the most dilapidated neighborhoods and in the worst housing…

A racist comment often used by Castro oligarchs to describe any machinery that works well is: “esto debe haberlo inventado un blanco.” (This must have been invented by a white person)

 

That’s one of the reasons I refuse to watch Danny Glover movies. Not only did he make $millions in movies glorifying guns as he’s all “Only the gov’t should have guns!”, he thinks Fidel, whose gov’t uses their monopoly on guns to be murderously commie, is a good guy. Fidel is a murderously horrible racist and fucking Glover acts as though I’m a racist.

I can take all the idiocy from every other Hollywood idiot, but Glover goes above and beyond the usual idiocy to agitate for a man who would kill him without a qualm or second thought if Glover were a resident of Cuba. Instead, he lives a life-style that 99.9999999999999999% of every human who ever lived could not even understand. Augustus called and said, “I wish I could live like Glover!”

 

Since China owns much of our Democratic media/entertainment political complex, we have to pretend that we don’t know that China is an empire that wants to expand. They do that by bribing local gov’ts (Like Obama’s for instance) to move in their own people and that pisses off Teh Peepul affected.

Pakistan has deployed a 15,000-strong military force to protect Chinese nationals working on energy and infrastructure projects in the country, President Mamnoon Hussain said on Sunday, after the abduction of a Chinese couple raised safety concerns.

China sends people all over the place to change the ethnography, much as Muslims are doing in Europe. China’s been doing it in Tibet and in the Vladivostok area most notably, but they’re also doing it in Panama and places in Africa. What happens when China sends a few million people to a country of 10 million? China will not even notice the loss but places like Panama are swamped.

 

Even though all of our fine political, social, moral and intellectual betters pretend otherwise, a good guy with a gun often beats a bad guy with a gun.

 

There’s a difference between some thug with a gun and someone who’s thought about what it means and is mentally prepared.

 

This one doesn’t fit, it’s what we all wish we could see.

Department of Veterans Affairs Phone Outreach Assistance Specialist Janice Edlers has been on hold with Comcast since 10 a.m., sources report.

“This is not just incredibly frustrating, it’s disrespectful and demoralizing,” said Edlers, who routinely leaves her phone off the hook in her cubicle in a Department of Veterans Affairs Call Center while she makes coffee, gets a snack, or texts with her boyfriend.

 

It would be better if it was an Obamacare hotline, but we all know our fine governmental betters don’t have to deal with that shit.
