Fortunately, the “benefit” was not lasting (cue wild applause).  Gentle readers, in writing this series, I’ve discovered my biggest dilemma is deciding which stupid makes the cut.  There is just so much, every day…  Anyway, on to the stupid that is destroying the nation, such as this from Brietbart.com:

After the U.S. women’s soccer team lost 1-0 to Canada on Monday at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, forward Megan Rapinoe told reporters, ‘Obviously, we never want to lose to Canada. I don’t think I’ve ever lost to Canada. … this sucks. It sucks.’

Ah yes.  Sportsmanship.  Or Sportswomanship, or sportslesbianship, or sportspurplehairship or whatever…  Because the non-thinking behind having a “Chief of Violence Prevention” is so incredibly stupid, this is delightfully ironic:

Wow.  I would have done it for a million, tops:

$3 Million Government Study Finds Link Between Excessive Drinking and Aggressive Nightclub Behavior

By Craig Eyermann

Perhaps unaware of centuries of evidencethat suggests some kind of connection between excessive alcohol consumption and aggressive behavior on the part of revelers, including its own, the U.S. government launched a series of studies to learn more in 2014. Since then, the cumulative tab for the ongoing studies into the behavior of alcohol-consuming nightclub customers has cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $3 million.

Thomas Phippen of the Daily Caller dredged up the details of this not-quite-so-cutting edge research:

The government has spent nearly $3 million studying people who drink and become aggressive at nightclubs since 2014, and found, among other things, that heavy drinking is linked to aggressive behavior.

Wait a minute: “freedom” is “anti-government?”  Which government?

Oh.  Right.  The Harris/Biden/Whoever Government, Joe Biden, Temporary President.

And speaking of that government:

Why did ‘Vogue’ call Dr. Jill Biden a ‘goddess in stilettos?’ – opinion

And then he picked it off is chin and ate it.  No kidding: 

Was this on one of his note cards?

President Biden struck an odd tone near the site of the Florida building collapse Thursday as he talked about finding a ‘good’ side to the disaster that left at least 18 dead and nearly 150 missing.

‘You know what’s good about this?’ Biden said at a briefing with local leaders. ‘We’re letting the nation know we can cooperate — and when it’s really important.’

Well sure.  And all the dead folks won’t have to spend so much on toothpaste, deodorant, clothing, rent and other stuff anymore.

Shark advocates?  Is that anything like serial killer advocates, ill-tempered rattlesnake advocates or perhaps genocidal dictator advocates?

Where would we be without an AOC entry?  Oh, the humanity!

“Party Time”?!  Was ABC actually trying to be cute about a regime that has murdered no less than 80 million people?  That’s some party.

I was going to ask what could possibly be going on in his head, but there’s no point, really…

With Republicans like this, Normal Americans don’t need enemies…

What could possibly go wrong?

Sobriety for dollars: California lawmakers move to pay meth addicts to stay clean

Who coulda thunk it?

The U.S. Army’s transition to a genderless fitness test appears to have backfired. We can file this one under ‘extremely predictable.’

According to a Military.com report, “early data shows nearly half of female soldiers can’t pass the test and might face being removed from service once it becomes official next year.”

The Army is now considering a return to gender-specific fitness standards.

Oh sure, because there can only be one person doing this sort of thing on the Internet…

In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court said 303 Creative founder Lorie Smith must design graphics and websites that ‘celebrate same-sex marriages’ because Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act ‘permissibly compels’ her to do so if she also is going to create websites that celebrate heterosexual marriages.

Writing for the majority, Judge Mary Beck Briscoe said that Colorado has a ‘compelling interest in protecting both the dignity interests of members of marginalized groups and their material interests in accessing the commercial marketplace.’ She ruled that while CADA’s protections are ‘not narrowly tailored to preventing dignitary harms,’ the law requires Colorado to ensure ‘equal access to publicly available goods and services.’

The fact that same-sex couples can obtain web design services from other businesses, not just 303 Creative, does not mean that homosexuals have ‘equal access,’ according to Briscoe.

Permitting Smith to honor her religious convictions by refusing to celebrate same-sex marriages ‘would necessarily relegate LGBT consumers to an inferior market,’ Briscoe wrote, ‘because Appellants’ unique services are, by definition, unavailable elsewhere.’

The judge’s reasoning is that LGBT customers would be denied equal access to Smith’s specific services, which constitutes a violation of Colorado’s discrimination protections.

‘To be sure, LGBT consumers may be able to obtain wedding-website design services from other businesses; yet, LGBT consumers will never be able to obtain wedding-related services of the same quality and nature as those that Appellants offer,’ Briscoe wrote. ‘Thus, there are no less intrusive means of providing equal access to those types of services.’

Oh, right!  It’s not about religious liberty, it’s about quality, not equality.

Briscoe asserted that Smith has something ‘similar to a monopoly’ over her own creative talents.

‘The product at issue is not merely ‘custom-made wedding websites,’ but rather ‘custom-made wedding websites of the same quality and nature as those made by Appellants.’ In that market, only Appellants exist,’ she argued.

Who knew getting a law school education could make one so blindingly stupid?  Uh, I don’t think you’re qualified to judge that sort of thing, Joe…

You expected the CDC and NIH to actually have evidence?

Wait a minute: you’re saying these people would actually resort to trickery?!

Oh yeah, Texans are going to just love this…

If you were absolutely confident the election was honest, wouldn’t you want an audit to prove it?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, or everything I’ve ever said…

House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., has expressed strong opposition to voter identification requirements in the past, but now that Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is pushing for it in an effort to reach a voting reform compromise, he claims he has ‘always’ been a fan.

Yeah, that that’s different because shut up you white supremacist, insurrectionist, domestic terrorist, racist, you…

The only thing stupid about this is it would probably be the FBI…

Oh, of course.  There could be no other cause for crime but racism.  That’s why so many Black people commit crimes against so many Black people…

A senior official in the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office linked fears of a crime surge to racism in a tweet that raised eyebrows Sunday evening.

Kate Chatfield, a senior director in far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s office, downplayed safety concerns amid a nationwide crime spike.

Well, they said they’re trained Marxists…

As always, minorities, women, hardest hit…

National Geographic has suggested that holiday fireworks are racist because the smoke pollution ‘disproportionately’ hurts minorities — sparking a firestorm of criticism from readers.

The famed conservation institution tweeted out the assertion on the Fourth of July, based on a recent study assessing the impact of Independence Day fireworks on communities.

‘Scientists found that vulnerable people and communities of color are disproportionately exposed to air pollution from firework celebrations,’ the nonprofit wrote on Twitter above a photo of a lights display over North Hollywood, Calif.

But I want to see pictures of the pyramids and stuff!  What happened to that?  But they always catch their man on TV…  

 Senior FBI officials failed on several fronts to properly handle claims of sexual abuse made against disgraced Olympic doctor Larry Nassar, according to a report released Wednesday by the Department of Justice’s inspector general.

FBI officials in Indianapolis first learned of allegations against Nassar in July 2015. Agents waited five weeks to conduct any interviews on the matter and then failed to follow protocol in sharing information with others in the bureau and other law enforcement agencies. Nassar, who later pleaded guilty to sexually abusing gymnasts under the guise of medical treatment, continued to see patients for more than a year until a separate complaint made to police in Michigan resulted in his arrest. More than 70 women and girls claim in civil lawsuits that Nassar sexually assaulted them during that yearlong period after the FBI received complaints about him.

The report said FBI officials on the case did not respond with the ‘seriousness and urgency’ required by serious allegations. The investigators also found the supervisory special agent in Indianapolis failed to properly document complaints, mishandled evidence and made false statements about the case. A now-retired FBI agent made false statements under oath, as well, leading two U.S. senators to call for criminal charges.

The FBI, not serious, committing perjury, neglecting their duty?  Hard to believe…  This, however, is not hard to believe…

And this is the kind of clarity we’ve come to expect from our temporary president:  

President Joe Biden said he is ‘checking’ on if his presidential powers could give him the ability to intervene in states banning mask mandates.

‘I don’t believe that I do thus far. We’re checking that,’ Biden said Tuesday when asked if he could intervene in states such as Texas and Florida that have banned mask mandates. ‘But there are — federal workforce, I can.’

I can help with that Joe: read the 10th Amendment.

Too stupid to survive.
