Is this the way it’s gonna go?

  1. I suspect the short answer is yes, this is the way it’s going to go. At least for the near future.

    The way these various (supposedly) high-ranking mucky-mucks are being thrown overboard right now is pretty clear evidence that the deepest of the deep state/media/entertainment power brokers are really, really scared. They’re hearing some big footsteps coming their way, with evidence of stuff that we peons probably can’t even conceive of. And these Satan-serving bastards will do anything, and sacrifice anyone, to save their skins.

    And no, they have never given a damn about either the rule of law or normal human relationships.

  2. I think it’s due to the inherent chaos that comes from the overwhelming presence, these days, of neo-Marxist (the Frankfurt School) “critical theory” where everything previously normal is criticized; nice-sounding demanded alternatives don’t get vetted; and their consequences, no matter how bad, are enforced by “political correctness.”

    I remember the original debates about “sexual harassment in the workplace” legislation (where the FedGov had jurisdiction). It wasn’t about bad manners, it was about the illegitimate use of male power in employment, advancement, and workplace culture to gain sexual favor or suppress female power. It was more about power than perversion or bad manners. [insert long list of other legislation/policy whose sales spiels are long forgotten]

    I wholeheartedly agree that tying employment or advancement on willingness to engage in sex is blatantly wrong and possibly criminal (so is offering sex for consideration, but we’ll leave that for another essay).

    Personally, as far as workplace relationships go, I draw the line between making a play in hopes of future gratification vs words/contact that are themselves gratification. Pass vs perv.

    A fumbled pass is no-harm-no-foul, but grabassery is fifteen yards, and a demand for quid pro quo is either a mild form of rape or prostitution.

    Yeah, the Age of Aquarius is over. It died in mass confusion on contact with competing fantasy world-views as well as with actual reality. The services’ old non-fraternization rules still apply. What’s old is new again.

    If I had a daughter these days?
    Dunno, but it’d probably include lessons on bein’ a lady, how to slap/punch/kick, and a bodycam.
    Oh, and a PowerPoint lecture to all her boyfriends and a nice trip to the range for some watermelon fun.

  3. It wasn’t a 30 hour investigation, it was two days of, ‘Oh shit. Can we keep hiding this or do we have to act?’

  4. And while we’re on the subject of Mr Lauer, can anyone tell me why he or any other television meat puppet is worth $20 mil per year?
