Aspen is hosting the National Brotherhood of Skiers, which is advertised to be “the largest black ski group in the United States.” That’s nice. Welcome to Aspen, my friends. A hearty welcome was not enough, however, for Mike Kaplan, the liberal white CEO of Aspen Skiing Company. He found it necessary to issue a memo to all employees instructing them how to behave around black people. Kaplan instructed employees to greet the black guests “lovingly and intentionally.” He says employees ordinarily treat all guests this way but instructed them “to make an even greater effort” with the black ones. He goes on to tell employees the reason for this special effort for blacks.

I see, don't discriminate by discriminating. Treat all according to the color of their skin, not by their character. I'll ski elsewhere thank you, somewhere where they don't look at the color of my skin to determine if I'm worthy of their attention.

When are we as individuals going to value just having good manners and being polite to all people which declares who we are in our own characters? What he is asking is obsequious and unnecessary IMO. I’m tired of walking on eggshells over everyone’s ‘lived experience’

This is getting a little over the top, with regards to consumers. According to the 2020 census black population makes up 12.5 %.

This is funny. A racist bunch of bigots show up to have a little fun and the serfs that turn all the screws and hammer all the nails in Aspen are told to bow even deeper. If any of ya'll ever been to Aspen you know the locals WILL do as instructed.

Mike Kaplan believes that the BEST way to eliminate racism is to practice it. What an arrogant ass. He thinks treating blacks as PETS rather than PEOPLE is a good way to make up for past discrimination. This man is still a racist no matter what rose-colored glasses he is wearing. Idiot.

Blacks represent only ~13% of the overall population and they are WAY less than that on the slopes. Are they afraid Soros will pay BLM to travel to ski country and ravage the resorts?

The only reason Laqueesha and D'rayvion would go to Aspen is to steal they fair share of the reparations in the form of watches and purses. I can hardly wait for the blacks only sailing regatta off the coast of Hyannisport. But then, they did invent bungee jumping from jungle trees to prove their manhood, so they've got that going for them. /s

Mike Kaplan may assume, based on his experience, that too many black people believe that any comment by his staff implies racial prejudice, including totally neutral factual statements such as specifying the time a restaurant opens. Why might this be the case? Because far too many blacks have their antenna out and are looking for signs of racial prejudice, and they often find it when it does not exist.

How could Mr. Kaplan possibly believe, let alone openly suggest, that black customers might "interpret" a restaurant having specific operating hours, or parking spaces reserved for hotel guests, as racist? His guests and his employees both deserve an apology for his condescending comments.

The biggest racists in this country are always lie-berals. What else do you expect?!?!?!? I worked at a convention center for a while while I was in college. One time they were having a convention of mentally handicapped people. They gave us special instructions to be extra patient and friendly with them, and to show them extra attention. It sounds like this racist CEO thinks of blacks as being inferior where they have to be treated "special". If I were one of his employees, I would be so angry that he thought we were capable of treating all of our customers with respect.

A verminous, potentially rabid rodent in Pennsylvania crawled out of his hole in the ground this week, saw his shadow and, according to the local vermin whisperers, gloated that he’s entitled to another six weeks of dreamy winter sleep. Everyone clapped. I say shoot him. I have to admit that this creature’s cryptic weather forecasts are more accurate than those of a British climatologist who predicted 22 years ago that snow would become extinct in Britain within a few years. He was dramatically wrong.

No, it’s not about race.” Whatever happened to the leftist trope that there’s no such thing as race? The left has rediscovered race and now it’s everywhere they look, except in the Holocaust. America is racist – systemically! – but the Nazi’s were not. The Germans and Jews certainly thought the Holocaust was about race. When Nazi’s said “we will exterminate the Jewish race” and thereupon murdered over six million of them,

The White House last week leaked word of Justice Stephen Breyer’s imminent retirement. The leak forced Justice Breyer to accelerate his plan to the following day, rather than waiting until the end of the Supreme Court term in June, as typically happens. Accelerating Justice Breyer’s plan was not an incidental outcome of the White House leak. It was the intended outcome. And it worked, for a moment anyway. Attention has been diverted from Joe Biden’s ongoing bungling of Ukraine, the economy, COVID, the border, Afghanistan and his plummeting poll numbers, by a renewed focus on his campaign promise to nominate a black woman for the next Supreme Court opening.

Scientists are still debating whether we should try to “flatten” the COVID curve. The curve is a plot of deaths on the vertical axis versus time on the horizontal axis. The graph above is an example, showing daily deaths worldwide from COVID since the advent of the pandemic. If you add up the daily deaths, you of course wind up with the total deaths – currently over 800,000 in the U.S. This is the “area under the curve.” (Calculus, anyone?) “Flattening the curve” means lowering the peaks – lowering the daily deaths. Scientists on one side of the “flattening” debate – call them the Flatteners – say that we can accomplish that

Let’s be clear what the issue is here. The issue before the court is not whether vaccination is good or bad. All nine of the Justices have been fully vaccinated and have also received boosters (as I have). It’s fair to conclude that the Justices all think vaccinations are good, at least for people of their demographic. Nor is the issue whether state or federal government can impose vaccine mandates on the population. They indisputably can, and frequently have. In oral argument yesterday, Justice Gorsuch noted in passing that he recently rejected a challenge to a vaccine mandate imposed by the state government of New Mexico. Similarly,

New York Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio Cortez can’t get enough of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. She harps obsessively on his purported mismanagement of COVID, including his refusal to mandate masks against the will of the people in the state he was elected to govern. And so it was interesting that AOC was recently photographed in Florida. Did she come to stalk DeSantis? If so, she might have stalked in the wrong place. The photograph of her was taken in a drag bar, which is probably not the type of place DeSantis frequents. Upon hearing the news, DeSantis good naturedly welcomed AOC to his state.

I remember 9/11 well. People were shocked and angry, but also brave and compassionate. Police and firefighters ran into the burning World Trade Towers to save office workers. Many of those police and firefighters were still there trying to save lives when the buildings collapsed over and under them. On a hijacked flight over Pennsylvania, passengers heard by telephone of the collapse of the Trade Towers and surmised that their hijackers planned a similar strike. Some of the passengers huddled, plotted and made a pact to overcome the terrorists. The terrorists had already murdered the pilots, and so the passengers knew their actions would crash the plane and end their own lives.
What is "obscene" wealth? 19 replies
Posted by Big Bopper 12/27/2021 12:30:06 PM Post Reply
According to a friend at a Christmas party, “obscene” wealth is the kind that’s unneeded. His example was a 100-foot yacht. “Nobody needs a 100-foot yacht,” he intoned. I agreed that nobody needs a 100-foot yacht. But nobody needs a glass of expensive chardonnay either. I kindly offered to relieve him of the one he was holding. The only things that are truly needed by humans are food, shelter, simple clothing and occasional medical treatment. Everything beyond that is unneeded and, therefore, under my friend’s definition, obscene. So “obscene” wealth must mean something other than the unneeded kind. But what? For guidance in defining obscenity, let’s look at sex

Two thousand years ago, a carpenter lived a conventional life for 30 years in a tiny village in the Middle East. Then he somehow became as they might say today, “radicalized.” Historians agree that Jesus did exist. There are reliable ancient records of him. But most of what we know are opaque and contradictory accounts written decades after his death in what we now call the Gospel of the New Testament. In one sense, those Gospel accounts are profoundly simple. They say Jesus was the Messiah prophesized in the Hebrew Bible. As such, he performed miracles to save those needing saving. He came back from the dead. That’s the word.

Several Dem Senators have reservations about BBB behind the scenes, but the one with the guts to stand up to it publicly is Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Manchin publicly objected to the bill on the grounds that it pumps too much money into the economy at a time when inflation is rocketing, that it contains numerous provisions unrelated to the budget process

They are a versatile fashion accessory and a staple in every woman's wardrobe. But now researchers say wearing ladies tights on your face could slash your risk of getting Covid. One of the criticisms aimed at commonly worn face coverings is that they do not fit tightly enough to significantly block viral particles from being inhaled or exhaled. As part of a new study, Cambridge University experts reviewed a variety of DIY hacks people have used to make masks fit better, including using rubber bands or tape. Curiously, they found the most effective tactic was to wrap pantyhose around the bottom half of the face—on top of a mask.

The Biden administration is set to fund the distribution of crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its plan to advance "racial equity." The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for "smoking kits/supplies." A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and "any illicit substance."
