America In A Race To The Bottom?

How dumb can we get? This dumb:

As the far-left continues to push for various American institutions or locations to change their historic names, the governor of Rhode Island is taking steps to rename her entire state, according to the New York Post. 
Governor Gina Raimondo (D-R.I.), signed an order aimed at changing Rhode Island’s full official name, which is “The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.” 
The little-known but official portion of “Providence Plantations” has come under fire in recent days, with some falsely claiming that it carries connotations of slavery. As such, Raimondo’s directive, Executive Order 20-48, directs that the name be simply changed to “Rhode Island.”

Will the American people lash back against PC enforced stupidity? We're about to find out.

In the meantime, come August the Dems will hold their convention in Milwaukee. I'm very curious to see just what kind of a freak show it can turn into.

Many Americans aren't waiting to see any more of the Left Freak Show in the major cities. The news is full of stories of booming real estate markets outside major metro areas, including for second homes. Normals are voting with their feet, having given up on Dem "governance."

Emailer Todd sent me this story, which we both noticed last night. Well played Mayor Jenny!
Due to Seattle’s unrest, billion-dollar investment firm moving to Phoenix
PHOENIX — Coronavirus pandemic or not, an investment advisory company is leaving the cultural unrest in Seattle and moving its headquarters to Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor. 
” … The unrest that has taken place in the city of Seattle … there is really is not a downtown business community today,” Smead Capital Management, President and CEO Cole Smead told KTAR News 92.3 FM. 
Smead said that although taxes in Seattle are lower, candidate recruitment is harder and the cost of living within the city is more expensive than Phoenix. 
“We’re hearing rumors of 40-story buildings that will be only 20-percent occupied by October,” Smead said. 
“My biggest concern for Seattle was what the business community is going to come back to, and what kind of businesses are going to come back for customers.” 
He found that metro Phoenix offers a better quality of life. 
“My colleagues can pick the socio-economic rung of life that they want … live their lives, build their households and have a family if they’d like,” Smead said.
“Where we’re coming from just wasn’t like that.”

Build their lives, have a family ... Wow! Sounds, like, very normal! But Gorsuch and Roberts will be tracking them down to inflict "future cases" on them. Can't have normality breaking out like this.

Sounds like a great campaign slogan. Make America Normal Again.


  1. The most important part of returning this nation to its roots would be trimming the feathers of the Supreme Court. One of the planks of the Republican party should be to restore the court to its true constitutional role and remove its legislating from the bench power grab. Trump should campaign on this; it would be easy to explain to the American people how the court is causing much of the divisiveness the country is enduring today through its meritless rulings based on feelings and animosity toward those they do not associate with. Go after the root of the problem - a judiciary that hides behind being neutral when the glaring facts are quite to the contrary.


    1. While I agree, it's a complex problem. First of all, the GOP needs to regain the House. Nothing can be done without that, simply because it's a measure of public support. The other side of the equation is that we have to restore the teaching of actual history and civics to our schools, high schools, and colleges. Representative government with a proper balance of powers will never work with an ignorant electorate.

      Finally, and the most difficult of all, America needs to undergo a moral and religious renewal.
