Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time — Question: Is the Left stupid or evil? Answer: Yes.
First, a little mood music:
Funny how it is the Left who think of non-Whites, specifically Blacks, as… dogs.
“Academics recently applauded a Social Psychology Quarterly study purporting to show a disparity in the time dogs were adopted based on racial associations with the animals’ names.
“‘White’ names, according to the study, resulted in shorter adoption times compared to ‘Black’ names.
“The correlations were largely concentrated around pit bulls, ‘a breed that is stereotyped as dangerous and racialized as Black,’ according to the study.”

Nothing quite like sorting out the Nomenklatura from the excess peasants like mass starvation!
“The world is facing the prospect of a dramatic shortfall in food production as rising energy prices cascade through global agriculture, the CEO of Norwegian fertilizer giant Yara International says.
“‘I want to say this loud and clear right now, that we risk a very low crop in the next harvest,’ said Svein Tore Holsether, the CEO and president of the Oslo-based company. ‘I’m afraid we’re going to have a food crisis.’
“Speaking to Fortune on the sidelines of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Holsether said that the sharp rise in energy prices this summer and autumn had already resulted in fertilizer prices roughly tripling.
“In Europe, the natural-gas benchmark hit an all-time high in September, with the price more than tripling from June to October alone. Yara is a major producer of ammonia, a key ingredient in synthetic fertilizer, which increases crop yields. The process of creating ammonia currently relies on hydropower or natural gas.”
