Fifteen years ago there were virtually no wind turbines dotting the Texas landscape, but now a quarter of the state’s electricity is generated by those big fans … which have frozen solid in the current cold snap.
What were they thinking?
Texas is chockablock with energy sources from oil to natural gas. As some wag wrote this week, going without energy in Texas is akin to starving to death in a grocery store. You can only do it on purpose.
I heard from my second ex-wife yesterday. She lives in Houston, and there is no power in her house. She is hunkering down with a ski parka and cap. She put the contents of her fridge in her sun room, which is essentially putting it outdoors but where the possums and squirrels cannot get to it.
Meanwhile, Sleepy Joe has canceled the Keystone Pipeline.
What is the moral of all this? Stick to what works and avoid fads.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a dumber and more inaccurate, stylish phrase than the above. Not only is diversity not our strength. It is the cause of uproar and divisiveness.
Anyone with a moderate grasp of history knows this. Of course, few people possess even a middling grasp of history. They are ignoramuses.
And yet almost everyone spouts the phrase, not just individuals but corporations which, almost without exception, now include the pursuit of diversity in their list of principles. This means they mainly choose their employees not by skills but skin color and gender. This is really dumb.
That embracing diversity causes problems is obvious. Just look at the United States now. That not embracing it avoids problems of a similar nature is demonstrated by unicultural nations such as Mexico, Japan, Russia, China and so on. These sorts of nations do not crow that diversity is their strength. They know better.
This diversity-embracing nonsense is not pushed by conservatives. It is pushed by leftists. In the United States that means the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party. Diversity is not the sole bad idea of these people, though it is a primary one that drives other ill-conceived initiatives.
Deep down, the Democrat Socialists know that diversity is not our strength at all, which is why they are so intent on muzzling anyone who disagrees. Truth speaks for itself. Lies must be forced upon us. Diversity is a road to destruction, a Highway to Hell.
