Too bad Washington realized too late that Benedict Arnold was bad company. But I've seen the suggestion made that the difference between the two, in essence, is that Washington married Martha Custis and Arnold married Peggy Shippen. The latter definitely proved to be bad company.

I wasn't defending the homeless in general, merely one harmless soul -- and not exactly defending him, either. Of course, who knows what he would have done if you hadn't confronted him? But we shouldn't assume him guilty without evidence, and looking for coins that fell onto the ground isn't evidence of guilt. It's too bad you can't get the ones who are guilty, regardless of the charges.

For that matter, while I was living in an apartment complex some decades back, someone stole my battery twice (the first was old, and no doubt when it ran out he knew where to look for a much fresher one) as well as a tire (though he did leave the hub cap with the lug nuts on it next to the car). Oh, would I have liked to see him undergone some nice suitable punishment. Squassation would have made a good start.

Timothy, we live here in the land of subtlety and distinctions. Sadly, there are many “homeless” who need to be defended….many from Democrats who threw them out of their needed institutions where they got care. Nearly all need defending from the “do-gooders.”

The great tragedy of our time is how “nice” has been defined without subtlety and distinction. Some people need a swift kick in the ass and others need a softer touch. Nearly all don’t need to be made easy in their vagrant way of life. “Nice,” to me, is helping them out of their degraded vagrancy, not making me feel a virtue-buzz for making their way of life easier for them to remain in.

I won't disagree with you there. I read once that removing the mentally defective from institutions happened partly because the federal government would pay them welfare if they were on the street or in homeless shelters, whereas the states would pay for them if they were in institutions. The states made the decision, and as usual they followed the money. Then, too, the American Criminal Liberties Union was pushing to kick them out for reasons that make no sense to normal people. Unfortunately, the ACLU wasn't (and isn't) run by normal people.

Michael Brown has a nice article today on Town Hall which deals with the lunacy of Planet Fitness. The company has a considerable history of kicking out women who don't appreciate sharing their locker room and other facilities with sexually dysphoric "men". Brown discusses a spectacular recent case that could lead to a legal dispute, since the Planet Fitness contract specifies separate locker rooms for men and women. The link is:

While watching a program about Australia on PBS, I heard the narrator say something about the "original owners." This seemed a strange thing to say until it hit me what was happening. The Aussies have gone so politically correct that they now call the aborigines "original owners", much like PC Americans call Indians "native Americans."

I find "original owners" even more nonsensical than "native Americans" so perhaps we should be thankful for small favors.

Mr. Kung, wake me when all these posing liberals actually start returning territory to "the original owners." First, I'd do a title search on any tribes that predated the aborigines.

Well, the Tasmanian Aussies are safe. There aren't any "original owners" there because they were exterminated long ago. I would suggest that those who use such terminology should put their land where the big mouths are by giving their real property back to the abos.

Well, it appears that the leftist newsliars have decided on how to cover violence against them: by ignoring it. Even NBC, which had reporters targeted both in Charlottesville and DC, covered the violence up. Vox was critical, perhaps realizing where this will lead (and I hope next time Antifa does start killing newsliars, if nothing else to see what tactic the synoptic media use to hide what happened, as they certainly would), but other leftists denounced them for telling the truth about Antifa violence. So the next time narcissistic newsliars whine about conservatives saying Mean Things about them, someone needs to remind them that if they have no objection to Antifa violence against newsliars, then why are they so upset about verbal catcalls from conservatives.

The only good Antifa is a dead Antifa. And the only good newsliar is a dead newsliar.

The country has come to a sad state where the left will win no matter what happens.

On the one hand, if normal citizens do not call out the left for what it is, the left will continue to rot out the culture of America and expand their hold on government, media and academia. America will be America no more.

On the other hand, if normal citizens do decide it is time to stand up and push back against the left, the situation is so dire that I believe only violence on a fairly large scale will cow the left. In this case, every leftist could be disposed of but the country will have been badly weakened and if they (leftists) are still around the country will be badly split. Our position vis-a-vis the rest of the world will be much more precarious.

In such ways does the left work. Push until one takes over peacefully or until one causes violence and a revolution. Either way they win unless their plans and actions are recognized and stopped early on.

Quite so. That's why Candace Owens didn't press charges against the Antifa who assaulted her. She didn't want to create martyrs. But when you don't punish crimes you get more of them. In the end, I think that counts more. That ultimately worked against the 60s radicals, and it will probably work now.
