North Scott School teacher serves oatmeal with liberal lard

An English teacher at North Scott High School implemented a diversity curriculum that included the following loaded topics. By loaded we mean that the formulation of some is biased, and in number they mostly reflect liberal spectrum “concerns”. One might argue that whether or not biased they can still trigger conservative perspectives in response. Yeah,  sell that somewhere else as it is doubtful that there is a history of anything but liberal indoctrination providing the background for students to deal with the various topics. That creates a hostile environment for students with conservative inclinations.

That the lesson involves surveying the students (and not in an unbiased way) regarding the issues presented is troubling. To his credit the school district’s superintendent saw some inappropriateness to it (see excerpted public statement).  We would add that a big part of the problem even if one found inklings of neutrality in the politically charged topics it is doubtful that going beyond or in an alternative mode to Google as a search engine is emphasized.  See links regarding bias in Google searches, which dominate 92% of searches on the Internet.

Thanks to DH and Sf for forwarding the information.  A school board meeting likely to have this matter brought up was scheduled for last night, Tuesday April 13.  We will let you know if we hear or read of any fireworks and readers please advise us any reports you have.

North Scott Schools Superintendent statement in response (excerpt)

Throughout the past several weeks, there have been two instances in which concern was expressed about separate lessons at the Junior and High School. The purpose of this email is to communicate with our families regarding these concerns and clear up any misinformation that may be circulating.

The lesson at the High School was carried out in a college-level composition class for Juniors and Seniors. The lesson, Oatmeal Essay, was designed to meet writing standards and critical thinking skills. Part of the lesson included the students reading through a list of statements that caused them to explore their beliefs on certain topics; beliefs that may get in the way of processing information from sources that do not parallel their own beliefs. The assignment raised concern among some of our families. In looking into this situation further, we found that the list used in the assignment was not appropriate. In hindsight, we should have also provided parent notification proactively before the lesson started. The high school administration has worked with the department to ensure this lesson will meet our expectations in the future.

We doubt there was any misunderstanding about the import of the list or the tenor of education curricula today.

It has been our experience that “Google” searches for a topic near and dear to conservatives, often regardless of specificity, is likely to produce pages of links or a preponderance of links from liberal sources before the most on-point conservative link sources are set forth.

Is Iowa becoming dependent on wind, and inviting Texas size problems?

To answer our leading question — by the implications of the hype from Big Wind, the DM Register and other flacks for an energy production regime that is undependable during key energy demand periods after decades of development, environmentally dirty in its own way,  avifauna/bat killing, UGLY, often opposed by communities, tax subsidized – “makes no sense without it”  boondoggle . . . YES!  (in our humble opinion).

Each of the assertions above we are happy to defend.  They are discernible from investigating links we have provided in our blog roll  Energy and Climate at right and by reading commentaries we have posted, found by using our search tool and entering “wind“.

The headline featured article in the Des Moines Register (DMR) on Friday refers to ~~ “60% of Iowa’s energy comes from wind power. ”  In another DMR article recently it is reported that there are “9000” wind related jobs in Iowa.

What is not often reported and it relates to the “utility” of the above figures is that Iowa produces more energy than it uses.  Nevertheless the wind flacks want to the leave the impression that Iowa gets 60% of its energy from wind as in 60% of what it needs, thus implying that Iowa is dependent on wind for power, generating the concern “how could we ever make it with 60% less energy” . . . “wind power must be critical to our well being” . . . !

In reading about the glories of Iowa wind power, we took note of a Daily Koss article that says “since 2008, Iowa has produced more energy than it uses, and roughly 1/3 of our energy production is actually exported to neighboring states.”  We knew Mid-American Energy was in the game of gaming tax subsidies to buy and erect the monstrous turbines and then sell the energy produced at a profit ( gosh, do you think they were returning the subsidies along with normal taxes on income?).  It is referred to as REC sales and Null Energy in their published reports.  In December of 2012 it was already 18.6% of the energy they produced.

Null energy — what an appropriate name — tax subsidized energy production not needed in Iowa sold to other states wanting to claim a percentage of “green” energy that we bet do not need it either.. We did not have recent or an overall figure but thanks to the Daily Koss for accidentally practicing journalism and letting the wind out of the bag of the “necessity” of wind generation to Iowa’s well being.

So if the Koss figure is correct, thirty-three percent of Iowa’s total energy production, not just thirty-three percent of wind energy produced, is sold to others.  Given the ready availability of “fossil” production available we presume the energy bought is the so called green energy, sold as REC’s mentioned above. No need for other states to come to Iowa for fossil fuel produced energy as Iowa doesn’t have that much of it to sell (it buys what fossil fuels it needs for reliable power) and as a matter of political policy they go for the RECs.

So if  60% of Iowa’s produced energy is from wind (DMR article) and a third of its total production is sold out of state and that third likely to be entirely of the “green” component (wind), that means somewhat more than one half of wind energy produced in Iowa is sold to other states.Those states buy it as a matter of green policy mandates of their own but they seem not as interested in going full Monty with such a boondoggle of their own.

Now the question becomes does Iowa need the wind energy produced that is not sold out of state. We don’t have a figure of actual energy use in Iowa compared to capacity from fossil (coal and gas), and what little hydro generation, there is.  After the closing of Palo nuclear generating station near Cedar Rapids sadly Iowa no longer produces any nuclear derived energy.We presume there is fossil capacity now because there have not been shutdowns on scarce wind days.  However with the scheduled closing of coal fired stations located in Iowa soon, and if they are not replaced with gas fired operations (cheep and clean) or clean coal it would seem that Iowa is becoming more dependent and vulnerable to the vagaries of wind  . . . and Texas type problems are conceivable.

Texas had a perfect storm situation arise this winter mostly comprised of earlier incompetence and perhaps corruption.  View post here.  As many turbines as it has operating, dwarfing Iowa’s numbers, wind production there is at a level of 20% of Texas’ energy needs but it had big time problems coping with a cold and ice situation debilitating enough of its energy infrastructure in enough area to cause cascading problems.  Wind turbines there it was demonstrated had clear vulnerabilities to the experienced weather.  But apparently it wasn’t from the cold snap per se because it didn’t get that cold.  It was the ice that more so affected wind generation in Texas.

And Iowa wind generation “60% of our production” apparently would be no less vulnerable to any possibility of an ice-storm blanketing a large portion of the wind farms — perhaps more so as our weather patterns might have an ensuing longer period of cold to hinder melt.  A cascading problem aggravated  in our case by reduced fossil generation capability shut down in favor of wind generation.

Reading this Cedar Rapids Gazette report, the lack of heaters installed on Texas turbines as used in the upper mid-west to keep wind equipment online was not the main problem, it was ice accumulation on blades and Iowa’s turbine blades s are not immune.  The article also appeared in the publication Wind Watch:

Iowa wind turbines equipped to handle extreme cold. Ice is another matter.

Credit:  Erin Jordan | The Gazette | Fri., February 19, 2021 | www.thegazette.com ~~

Unlike Texas wind turbines that slowed or shut down during the recent winter storm, Iowa’s kept turning.

The main differences?

Texas was hit with ice, whereas Iowa has had extreme cold and snow. And because Iowa’s turbines are installed with heating elements to keep fuel and electrical controls warm, they can operate in temperatures of up to 20 below zero.

“We can get a foot of snow and the turbines continue to run right through that,” said Tony Vaughn, senior operations manager for Alliant Energy, which has about 650 turbines in Iowa. “But you get that mist and sleet, ice can build up. That’ll slow down the RPMs of the blade and it will reduce the output to a point where it will eventually come offline and not produce anything until ice starts to shed off the blades.”

That’s what happened in Texas this week as temperatures in the 20s and 30s caused sleet to freeze on the carbon fiber blades of wind turbines, reducing output and contributing to widespread power outages across the state.

Although Texas has been increasing its use of wind turbines, most of the state’s power comes from natural gas, coal and nuclear energy, the Associated Press reported.

About 25 percent of Texas’ electricity comes from wind energy. In contrast, Iowa is No. 1 in the nation for its share of electricity coming from wind at about 40 percent.

Because subzero temperatures are normal in Iowa winters, companies that develop wind farms here buy turbines equipped with a cold-weather package that include heaters near the gear box, generators and other components in the cell, which is the big box behind the turbine blades and attached to the tower.

“When we design a wind farm and order the equipment, we want to make sure it’s producing energy year-round no matter the weather conditions,” said Geoff Greenwood, a spokeswoman for MidAmerican Energy, which has more than 3,300 wind turbines in Iowa.

Even at the coldest point of this recent cold snap, temperatures in Iowa never got to 22 degrees below zero, which is where turbines start shutting down to protect themselves from damage.

“Our wind turbines have been running even in this extreme cold,” Greenwood said. And since November through April is peak season for harvesting wind energy in Iowa, companies like MidAmerican and Alliant want to minimize time when the wind is blowing but turbine blades aren’t running.

Ice is another matter.

Because there are few effective ways to keep ice from forming on turbine blades, wind farm operators have to decide whether to power down in anticipation of an ice storm. Doing so reduces ice accumulation on the blades and can shorten the thaw afterward, Vaughn said.

“The downside, you may have to turn them off for a whole 24-hour period and maybe the temperatures never fall low enough and you’ve lost out on 24 hours of time to produce power,” he said.

Although some comparisons are made between de-icing airplane wings and wind turbine blades, the systems are quite different, said Hui Hu, an aerospace engineering professor at Iowa State University.

Aircraft fly through clouds of very small droplets of water, while turbines spin close to the ground where droplets are larger, Hu said. Aircraft wings are metal, which conducts heat better than the polymers of turbine blades.

“Many heating mechanisms that work perfectly for aircraft may not be the best solutions” for wind turbines, Hu said.

More promising is a combination of low heat in certain parts of the turbine blade combined with a coating on the blade that would discourage ice adhesion and strength, according to new research from Hu and his research team.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority in 2019 awarded Hu’s team a $300,000 research grant to further develop these ideas.

It’s part of a long-term state investment in the wind industry, said Brian Selinger, team leader of the Iowa Energy Office within the authority.

“Wind energy has been extremely good to Iowa and to Iowa’s economy,” he said. Iowa’s wind industry employs nearly 10,000 people and has created billions of dollars in capital investments, he said.

“We have vast amounts of wind rippling across our fields,” Selinger said. “To be able to harness that for economic benefits, it checks all the boxes for economic development.”

Another brilliant approach to social equity — eliminate crime DO AWAY WITH LAWS

  • Reminds us of someone’s suggestion that America can immediately eliminate crime in our society…DO AWAY WITH LAWS!,  or . . .
  • Are there ‘enough’ minority doctors? What other critical jobs are there where there is a shortage of ‘minorities’?
  • Climb aboard the airline that lowers its pilot standards???
  • “Color blind” is a concept we should all agree with . . . 
  • “Affirmative action” if it means lowering standards, is not a matter of justice, rather it is dangerous, racist in its own way
  • Mentoring may well be appropriate however lowering final standards to accommodate racial politics only makes achievement suspect and hurts public confidence in professions

This “PowerLine” blog reports on the lowering of standards for would be Black lawyers. You can see from our comments above that it triggered us.

THE DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA: LAWYER EDITION

“From the TaxProf comes the news that a number of states are lowering, or considering lowering, the scores needed to pass the bar exam. Why? So that more minorities will become lawyers”:

“Several states say they could make their bar exams easier to pass as a way to address racial diversity problems and access-to-justice issues entrenched in the legal profession.”

————–

Rest of the article follows:

Their statements coincide with the first data from California, which permanently lowered its “cut score” last summer just incrementally—but saw significant changes in the racial make-up of those passing the test to become its newest lawyers.

Last week, Rhode Island became the first to follow suit in lowering the state’s cut score. Several others say they’ll soon be weighing similar reforms. … Court officials from Texas, Arizona, and Michigan said they’re also monitoring efforts from a national testing group to modify the bar exam, with an eye toward eventual changes in their own states. …

Several other states—including New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, North Carolina, and Utah—said they could consider lowering cut scores based on their own reviews and after studying how the moves play out elsewhere.

California found that when it lowered the score needed to pass the bar exam, the passage rate naturally increased for all ethnic groups. But it increased somewhat more for Asian, black and Hispanic candidates than for whites. 

Obviously, lowering the score needed to pass the bar exam will result in more lawyers in any given state. Is this a good thing? If you think we are a society with too few lawyers, yes. On the other hand, if you think it is important that lawyers licensed by the state demonstrate a minimum level of competence, and the bar exam is an important means of insuring such competence, then no.

The trend toward dumbing down bar exams is part of a broader phenomenon that Paul has written about many times–a decline in standards across many sectors of our economy and our culture, allegedly in service of racial equity. If members of a particular ethnic group are statistically less likely to get over any particular bar, one solution is to lower the bar. Whether this helps in the long run is of course another matter.

The racial quota system that is becoming ever more pervasive in industry, the academy and government can only undermine the quality of work done in all of those environments. If, to take just one recent example, United Air Lines establishes a quota system for pilots rather than hiring the most qualified pilots possible, a decline in pilot quality follows inexorably. Maybe it doesn’t matter, at least not catastrophically. Maybe no airplanes crash as a result of a less skilled pilot pool. 

But it would be ridiculous to suggest that meritocracy doesn’t improve quality in any human endeavor, leading to a better life for all of us. For almost all of our history, America has been a beacon of meritocracy, compared with the rest of the world. That largely explains our economic and cultural success. But today, individual achievement is being subordinated to group politics. 

Meanwhile, China–ostensibly ruled by a Communist Party in which all are equal–has become a ruthless meritocracy. If you are trying to get ahead in China, whether in science, engineering, business or government, you need the best scores, qualifications and experience. Being from an “under-represented” ethnic group gets you nowhere, although family relationship to the powerful is still a plus, if a rare one. It appears that China is now more a meritocracy than the U.S. The implications for our economic, cultural and military future are dire.

Its Dr Pepper Time

  • Below some fun facts about Coke’s willingness to support and profit from Nazi propaganda

I am making an effort to avoid anything Coke or Pepsi and any of their owned brands and products whether or not manufactured by licensed independent bottlers or producers.  You know why.

The main point is to send a message to them that sales of their flagship products will go down even if substitute competing companies are not politically neutral as long as they are not high-profile in their insults to legions of customers.

We should isolate and focus boycott efforts and make the target feel the burn of reduced sales.  Don’t try to do all the bad guys at once.  The idea is to make an example of one or a few and have that fertilize the thinking of the targets’ key investors and governing boards and like-minded competitors.

It is also important to directly contact partisan leftist consumer goods corporations  –  contact them through their corporate customer communication venues.  Let them know how you are avoiding their products and are encouraging others to do so . . . that you are not serving their products in your home and that you are avoiding them elsewhere.   Maybe informed investors will cause change in corporate behavior (along with the effect of sales figures).

Regarding the reference to Dr Pepper, it is true I like it anyway, so it is no sacrifice.  I am not sure of the political neutrality if the Dr Pepper soft-drink corporate owners’ Kuerig-Dr Peppert or Dr Pepper Snapple Group, or whoever the hell owns them. But that is not an issue as much as making the target (Coke) take notice of their harmful ways and the beneficiary (Dr Pepper) and other competitors becoming aware of the benefits of being at least politically neutral. Now if there is a competing company that makes it a policy to support the integrity of the vote, we should beat a path to its door.  This is not about us being neutral.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know Coke has a history with Nazi Germany?

“One people, one country, one drink, Coke is it” 1936 Olympic Games advertisement

Coke had a well established presence in Hitler’s Germany, and we doubt that happened without paying tribute, directly or indirectly. Above was part of the advertising for Coca-Cola’s enthusiastic presence at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, a Nazi propaganda stage. Coke  also profited from the Nazi war effort.

Did you know Fanta was the German answer to Coke having to pull out of Germany and Fascist Italy ~~ 1940. Fanta was the offshoot.  Some might say that was not Coke’s doing.  But what was Coke’s doing was their successful effort to repatriate the profits Fanta made from supplying beverages to Hitler’s Germany during the war years. We wonder, were any reparation made with those profits?

Coke maybe feels right at home with current wokesters, the wannabe ruling class and their inclination to be Nazi-like  — insisting on maintaining mechanisms to cheat in elections.

Surprise! Media distorts Sidney Powell assertion of a legal opinion

  • When you make a charge in court and as a lawyer represent such claims in public –  it is called a legal opinion and as such the truth is to be adjudicated. That does not mean it is not without foundation, a fantasy

Sidney Powell posted this yesterday on her Web site

“The #FakeNews is lying to everyone about our filing in the Dominion case. My position has not changed. We will be taking them to the mat”. – Sidney

Dominion v. FREE SPEECH

This lawsuit is yet another attempt to silence critics and citizens who want to investigate voter fraud. The statements Dominion claims are defamatory are actually protected speech under the First Amendment because they deal with matters of public concern, i.e., election integrity. The Fake News media and their allies are spinning meritless claims because their arguments have neither the facts nor the law needed to hold up in a courtroom.

The statements complained of are also protected because Dominion is a public figure and must prove that Ms. Powell acted with malice.  This is impossible, as Ms. Powell’s lawyer has explained, because Ms. Powell’s statements were based on sworn affidavits, declarations, expert reports and documentary evidence.  She presented this evidence for all to see in four court filings and on her website. 

FAKE NEWS v. Reality

  • Contrary to what the Fake News is pushing, Sidney did NOT claim in court that ‘no reasonable person would believe her claims’. The press is using twisted legalese and manipulating the legal standard to confuse the issue, as they have done before in other high-profile cases. Ms. Powell’s statements were legal opinions that she stands behind, as they were based on sworn affidavits, declarations, expert reports and documentary evidence.
  • Dominion claims that the evidence Ms. Powell relied upon to assert her claims concerning the lack of election integrity is incredible and not believable. Ms. Powell responded by pointing out that her assertions were her legal opinions based on the evidence she presented to four different courts. Accordingly, her statements are not subject to challenge under defamation law.

Official Statement from Sidney’s Lawyer

HOWARD KLEINHENDLER, ATTORNEY FOR SIDNEY POWELL, RESPONDS TO MEDIA ALLEGATIONS CONCERNING MOTION TO DISMISS FILED AGAINST DOMINION COMPLAINT 

New York, New York March 23, 2021 

Yesterday, several news media outlets cut and paste out of context portions of our motion to dismiss the Dominion complaint to “spin” a message that the election fraud allegations that Ms. Powell presented to various courts and to the public were not credible. I’d like to clarify what actually was presented to the court. First, let me be clear: any suggestion that “no reasonable person” would believe Ms. Powell or her comments on the election is false. The language these reports referred to is a legal standard adopted by the courts to determine whether statements qualify as opinions which are exempt from defamation liability. 

As the DC Circuit reaffirmed just last week, there is no claim for defamation when the alleged “defamatory” statement is a legal opinion. Ms. Powell’s statements fall precisely into this category. Ms. Powell reviewed sworn affidavits, declarations, expert testimony, and other highly corroborated evidence concerning the election which Ms. Powell filed with the courts and shared publicly. She continues to stand by those opinions today. Our motion, in part, argues that the Dominion case should be dismissed because legal opinions are not grounds for defamation. 

In sum, the legal standard of a technical legal defense crafted by the courts has been improperly manipulated by the media to tell a false narrative. Ms. Powell is not backing down or retracting her previous statements concerning Dominion. Dominion’s case lacks legal merit and should be dismissed in its entirety.

Canadian Pastor performs exorcism on his local health gestapo

Armed trespassers

A video to inspire. Pastor lets them know in no uncertain terms — no warrant  — get out and ~~ we don’t have to listen to your BS one second ~~ get out now.  And yet the dolt  can’t comprehend the message.  Eventually they slink away. Not sure the Calgary Police was happy to be there.

Below they admit to being partners with the health gestapo

STATEMENT: Police Defend Decision To ‘Intimidate’ Polish Pastor Who Called Them ‘Gestapo Nazis’, Demanded They ‘Get Out’ 

Calgary police were recorded on video as they stormed into a church run by a Polish immigrant to Canada, who promptly and forcefully demanded they leave the premises and ordered them not to return unless they obtained a warrant. Today they released a statement acknowledging and excusing their presence at the church.

“One uniformed member of the Calgary Police Service attended a call to assist our partner agencies, Alberta Health Services and City of Calgary Bylaw Services, in relation to a religious gathering” the statement began.

“The concern was that the people in attendance were not adhering to the government’s COVID-19 public health orders,” they admitted. They then referred to the Polish immigrant who is head pastor of the church, Artur Pawlowski, as “The organizer of the gathering” and claimed he was “uncooperative with the health inspector, and repeatedly raised his voice asking all parties to leave the premises.”

“No tickets were issued at the time and it will be up to our partner agencies to determine subsequent enforcement activity in response to the situation,” the police seemingly threatened.

“We do not wish to disrupt anyone’s holidays or religious or spiritual events,” the Calgary police claimed, before admitting they did exactly that. “However, we must support our partner agencies when called upon to help ensure everyone can safely celebrate these occasions.”

As National File reported, Pawlowski, who immigrated to Canada from “Knurów, Poland, angrily forced police officers out of his church when they came to “intimidate” him and his congregants into calling off their Passover service.”

“Can you imagine those psychopaths? Passover? The holiest Christian festival in a year, and they’re coming to intimidate Christians during the holiest festival? Unbelievable. What is wrong with those sick psychopaths? It’s beyond me,” said Pawlowski. On Facebook, he wrote,“Police came to disrupt Church gathering! Gestapo came again to intimidate the Church parishioners during the Passover Celebration!!! Unbelievable.”

Since Pawlowski posted the video to Facebook, it went viral across social media as it outraged Christians and was viewed millions of times.

I’m a (not so) humble hero.

I’m a (not so) humble hero.

That doesn’t make me special. It appears there are thousands of us around.

How would I know? Well while I’m driving around, living life, I see these yard signs reading, a “humble hero lives here.” They seem to be everywhere.

But I digress. Let me describe my heroic actions

Yesterday, as I entered a local big-box store, a terrorist threw a grenade. Instinctively, I threw my body on that grenade, sacrificing myself to save dozens. Well, not exactly

Yesterday, I saw a vehicle speeding out of control towards a group of children. Acting swiftly, I pushed the kids to safety, but the car hit me straight on. Maybe not.

There was no grenade, there was no speeding car.

My heroic act?

Upon arriving at the door of said big-box store, I pulled my neck gaiter up over my mouth and nose. Since I do not have COVID-19, that mask did nothing. It filtered out exactly zero viruses, and protected absolutely nobody.

Yep, I’m a hero. Feel free to deliver my sign at your convenience.

‘Christ is risen, and life is freed.’

Enter Into the Joy of Your Lord’: An Easter Homily From St. John Chrysostom  (excerpt)

‘Christ is risen, and life is freed.’

. . .

Come you all: Enter into the joy of your Lord. You the first and you the last, receive alike your reward; you rich and you poor, dance together; you sober and you weaklings, celebrate the day; you who have kept the fast and you who have not, rejoice today. The table is richly loaded: Enjoy its royal banquet. The calf is a fatted one: Let no one go away hungry. All of you enjoy the banquet of faith; all of you receive the riches of his goodness. Let no one grieve over his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed; let no one weep over his sins, for pardon has shone from the grave; let no one fear death, for the death of our Savior has set us free: He has destroyed it by enduring it. He has despoiled Hades by going down into its kingdom. He has angered it by allowing it to taste of his flesh.

. . .

O death, where is your sting?

O Hades, where is your victory?

Christ is risen, and you are abolished.

Christ is risen, and the demons are cast down.

Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice.

Christ is risen, and life is freed.

Christ is risen, and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep.

To Him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.

Boycotts by conservatives: Isolate an opponent, pick them off, and thereby scare the others straight

Corporate America is rife with “wokeness” — anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-constitution, one world government promoters, liberal activism. We need to go all Saul Alinsky on them.

More than one target of influence can be engaged.  Pick several, make it easy on yourself as the message can be “received” when a few are demonstrably made examples of through reduced sales, counter shaming, and pointing out hypocrisy.  Let their corporate offices know how they have insulted you.

Forgo — substitute alternatives within sub-industries (rowing machine instead of weight machine) —  buy direct competitors and competing brands not offensively engaged  (goods and services and let them know why).  Let retailers know as well.  At least commit to reducing expenditures benefiting them and let them know why. Definitively cut out a few and do so as part of an organized campaign for a few so as to send the message on a timely basis. Reducing and communicating works.

The purpose is to put profit making corporations in their place. Kind of like it used to be when they didn’t find it useful to insult half the country and use the profits  that half supplied to do the insulting.

Corporate Major League Baseball and each of its teams represent a good and easy place to start.  No purchases directly related to it (maybe pick an advertiser in their network similarly woke and boycott them as well) .  Do not watch it or show an interest via internet searches for game reports.  If you are brave ask the restaurant-bar to change channels if that is all they have on
