20200707 02:05 trailing wife Seeking cure, has the Burg returned to its normal colour, or do we need to check if Fred is playing under the hood again?

Frank, here is Instapundi’s take is even worse, half an hour later:

SO ON THE ONE HAND, YOU DON’T NEED TO BE HERE ON A STUDENT VISA IF YOU CAN ATTEND ONLINE FROM HOME: ICE Says Foreign Students Can’t Attend Online-Only College This Fall, Despite Pandemic. On the other, this is a big financial blow to the many universities that depend on a lot of full-freight-paying foreign students to make their nut. Then on the gripping hand, there’s this email from a friend: “Trump has just kicked out all Chinese University students by hiding it in a sea of ejected international students. . . . Universities can either help Trump get re-elected by returning to in-person classes or going bankrupt and cutting off money from the Democratic Party.”

Trump’s usual strategy is to bluster against his enemies on Twitter, than do something subtle that leaves them facing economic wreckage.

20200707 01:40 SCFI Wow! Everything turned blue in the Rant.

20200706 20:44 Frank G No need for your presence if they're online. Can you smell the death of Marxist Academia - ironically, or not, by finances?

robin:"NEW: ICE just put down a notice to students in the US on student visas that they must leave the United States if their classes are going to be only online this fall. If they want to stay, ICE says they must transfer to a school with in person instruction."

This is all over my FB feed, with the locals FREAKING OUT about students returning, but also FREAKING OUT about international students being told to leave (they never left as they weren't sure they would get back in.

It looks like checkmate to me by the Administration. Want to hold online classes only? Fine, your students don't need their visas so send them home. Hahahaha - I love it.

I think Trump is giving states until the end of the month to decide what to do about k-12 in person classes and then he'll drop the federal $$ bombshell. So many parents, many of them active voters, want/need their kids in school. This is stepping up to become a huge election issue and I don't think the teachers' unions have figured that out yet. They think they have the cards stacked in their favor and the goodwill of parents. Think again.
20200706 00:28 JohnQC T.W. I wondered if search engines such Giggle were not promoting the Burg in searches.
20200706 00:14 JohnQC Yup, it's me T.W. Thanks for info.
20200705 14:04 trailing wife JohnQC, go ahead and type your nym in the Posted by box, then we’ll know it’s you. ;-)

She has won several awards in the state in which she lives and was just hired by a newspaper for their editorial board. The headline in the paper was "Award-winning Weed Hired for Editorial Staff". She said she is neveer changing her last name.

20200629 16:13 trailing wife The opening is promising, Dron dear. I suspect you have a good deal of experience writing in that mode — it flows smoothly from your keyboard. :-)

49 Pan: The thing of mine that you posted for your people in the break room — is comment #2 here it? I am going through an old laptop and found this saved Rantburg link.

Dave D: Also on that old laptop, I found a copy of your Options post. The google cache address of the 2006 Comcast post that worked for me in 2011, according to my notes, now yields a 404 error. :-( But If I can figure out how to print the thing, Mr. Wife can scan it for me, suitable for emailing if you would like it.
20200629 11:45 Dron Hiya, all.

I hope you're all safe and happy (as much as can be right now). But here's something to help with that. Another short. Sci-Fi ? Horror ? You decide. It's not done yet, but... here it is.

20200624 12:41 Alaska Paul So was this noosegate bruhaha an indignant ignorant reaction on the part of Bubba or taking advantage of a situation for BLM? Even the paint job on Bubba’s car costs thousands to do. I smell a setup.
20200623 20:19 Frank G It always was. Adjacent garages had the same loop handpull. All it took was to take your virtue-signalling head outta yer ass and look around. Shame on NASCAR and Bubba
20200623 18:09 Deacon Blues NASCAR just announced that the "noose" is a rope that is used to close the garage door. It apparently came off several months ago and has been there the whole time. It was just coincidence that garage was assigned to Bubba Wallace.
20200623 17:56 Deacon Blues What do you call a national story about a noose that weirdly includes no photo of the noose?

Fake noose.
20200623 17:54 Deacon Blues The "noose" found in the garage of NASCAR'a only black driver turns out to be the rope used to close the garage door. Every garage has one.

20200622 11:01 Deacon Blues My Granddaughter and I have been having a discussion. Here is what she said to me, "Race is a social construct to enforce the thought of white supremacy". She couldn't give me a coherent explanation of what that actually means.
20200622 10:55 Deacon Blues P.S. I smoked some beef brisket, chicken, and beef ribs. Have corn on the cob, grilled okra, potato salad, and baked beans left over. Help yourself.
20200622 10:53 Deacon Blues Thanks, tw. I spent Father's Day mowing and trying out my new smoker. Father's Day is great!
20200621 22:48 trailing wife I made banana chocolate chip muffins this evening in honour of Father’s Day. so please help yourselves to a bit of healthy goodness. Tomorrow it will be zucchini bread muffins with chocolate chips and possibly almond or rum raisins. This is how Mr. Wife knows he is loved, and so should all who come here. :-)
20200616 15:53 Frank G Request comment to roll this over to tomorrow
20200616 00:44 trailing wife They’re like jihadi groups, splitting, renaming, rejoining and renaming again as the mood takes or the need arises — all very Toad The Wet Sprocket of Monty Python fame. We could make a new category for Commie-Anarchists, but at this point Fifth Column will do. Also, there is some level of connection with the actual jihadis, like the NYC lawyer who trained with Hamas on a George Soros Open Society scholarship.

20200607 10:55 Skidmark Not a lot of riot news this morning.
