De Blasio tells wife Chirlane decide fate of NYC statues of Washington, Jefferson

 

This should work out. Recall just last year Chirlane was determining the look of the city with new statutes. See, they wanted to “equalize” the number of male statutes. Last year the sex of the statute was at issue. This year we have moved on. Anything to destroy our culture. I will include a bit of last years post:

First lady Chirlane McCray will put statues and structures honoring historic figures tainted by slavery — including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — under the microscope as part of a new “Commission on Racial Justice and Reconciliation,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday.

Hizzoner’s move comes a day after five city lawmakers — including City Council Speaker Corey Johnson — sent a letter requesting the statue of Jefferson be removed from the council’s chamber, as leaders across the city and nation struggle to respond to weeks of protests over racism that followed the death of George Floyd….

De Blasio said that would include examining City Hall’s statue of Washington and the name of the mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion, which was built and owned by a slave owner, Archibald Gracie.

When pressed by reporters, de Blasio acknowledged he was not sure how far the review should go, but said it was time to examine the “profound contradictions” of the city and nation’s forefathers. More at  New York Post

Flashback… just last year….

NYC Mayor’s wife choses ‘Drag Queens’ for Statues over Saints

The real heroines for de Blasio’s wife are drag queens and abortion rights activists. How many tax payer bucks are going to supposedly ‘equalize’ the number of male statues to female statues in the city? Who is going to create these statues since the mayor’s wife doesn’t have exactly a good track record. De Blasio’s wife and the case of missing 850 million in taxpayers money

Francesca Xavier Cabrini and other female icons were denied honorary statues after a group controlled by First Lady Chirlane McCray tossed out the revered Catholic sister in favor of more women of color and a drag queen-turned-LGBTQ activist.

Cabrini was America’s first saint, a tireless advocate who founded an upstate orphanage, a school for girls in Washington Heights and 67 organizations for the needy in the late 1880s.
But she wasn’t good enough to be named one of New York’s seven most important women.

This despite Cabrini getting the most votes in a poll of New Yorkers on who should be included.

Also denied were poll leaders Emily Warren Roebling, who led the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, and Manhattan Music School founder Janet Schenck. Instead, they selected abortion rights activist Dr. Helen Rodriguez Trías and drag queens Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, among others, making clear what their criteria were.

Everything swell in the swamp. A-OK.

 

Eggnog Gestapo rides again!

While looking for something to get us in the Holiday spirit, what should I come upon but this grand news. Ah, the dreaded Eggnog. What could go wrong. So let us harken back to the days of yore, and following the post, I have a video of making Eggnog, which soon no doubt will be a thing of the past.

Would George Washington’s recipe for Eggnog meet government standards?  Here is George’s recipe CD Kitchen. Sure would put hair on one’s chest.

From National Review: Against the Eggnog Gestapo

Here is a sentence that makes me want to burn my passport and move into a fortified rural compound:

The FDA dictates that U.S. nog have at least 6 percent milk fat.

The subject is Southern Comfort eggnog, dissected in Wired magazine’s always-interesting “What’s Inside” series. (Spoiler: Southern Comfort eggnog contains no Southern Comfort.)

Somewhere in the vast array of federal rules and regulations — the 10,000 Commandments — is one specifying the minimum of milk fat that eggnog shall contain. Did the men who fought at Lexington and Concord do so in order to set up a new regime that would manage their lives on this level? King George III would never have dreamed of such imperious behavior. Is there nothing too trivial for the federal government to micromanage?

I do not think for a second that SamBarbieri, purveyor of the Sam’s Serious Eggnog that has enriched more than one National Review holiday party, would poison us all if not for the nog police, and I do not think that American children, much less American adults, require a federal intermediary to monitor milk-fat levels. I do not see how this sort of thing can possibly be defended, or why Americans put up with it.

UPDATE: And then there is this:

Annatto and turmeric (for color) The use of these two natural food colorings—which add a yellow tone—is technically forbidden in eggnogs under federal regulation (it might make revelers think the drink contains more egg than it really does). But eggnog makers pushed back, and that rule has been stayed—pending a public hearing—for the past 30 years! The FDA is now looking into it.

I shall now set something on fire.
