Let’s make Kylie a billionaire

Kylie Jenner was recently featured on the cover of Forbes as a self-made multi-millionaire on her way to become the youngest billionaire.  I dispute the statement that she’s “self-made.”Kylie Jenner on the cover of Forbes

Now someone who calls himself “FAT JEW” has started a GoFundMe campaign to help Kylie become a billionaire.

Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don’t want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

As of July 19, 2018, 155 people raised $2,029 of $100.0M goal in the last 7 days,  mostly in small contributions of five dollars.

#WalkAway

#Walkaway is a media campaign in which Americans post videos about why they walked away from the Democratic Party.  What’s cool about #WalkAway is that it attracts African-Americans, whites, Hispanics, immigrants, gays, straights, women, men, etc.  It goes to show you that the Democratic Party doesn’t own women and minorities.

Not surprisingly, people who align themselves with the Democratic Party claim that Russian bots are behind #WalkAway.  It’s amusing that people who were soft on the Soviet Union and communism now regard Russia as Public Enemy #1.  Hey, Hillary, how did the Russian reset work out for you? 🙂

Here’s the video that started it all:

Here are 5 articles about beauty that I found on the Web:

#MusicMonday Keely Smith “When Day is Done”

Three months ago, I promised a feature on Keely Smith, who died on December 16, 2017.

This video is taken from the Frank Sinatra show in 1958. It starts with wise-cracking between Sinatra and Keely Smith’s then husband Louis Prima. Keely sings “When Day is Done.”

 

While she put away the crinolines, she wore the same haircut throughout her life. 🙂

Activist teachers and the #March4OurLives

Certain events really rile me. One is Hillary Clinton’s trashing much of the U.S. electorate while overseas in India. The other is last Sunday’s March for Our Lives.

I’m a conservative, and I don’t want to make common cause with the so-called “progressive” groups and individuals who bankrolled the campaign. I am sick and tired of the Parkland kids who seem to be enjoying their celebrity too much. In this post, I will focus on the role of activist teachers.

Judy Gunlock (what a name!) asks:

Considering that many public schools are helping to rally more kids to the cause and are even supplying school resources and personnel time to the effort, tax payers should ask: Is this an acceptable use of school funds? More importantly, why is a publicly funded school supporting one side of a very contentious and complex constitutional matter?

A taxpayer-funded school shouldn’t take sides on this issue.

The article The Parkland Teens Fighting For Gun Control Have The Backing Of These Huge Organizing Groups notes that the American Federation of Teachers is organizing students:

The American Federation of Teachers, which helped bus students and parents to Tallahassee multiple times last week, are now assisting with the March for Our Lives rally. The federation’s president told BuzzFeed News that they are also helping support next month’s march as well as helping to shape the vision and mission for the group once the rally is over.

“There are a lot of people who know how to put on a march in Washington and we are here to help support the teens with that experience in terms of logistics and strategy but it’s still early and they have some time to figure that out,” AFT President Randi Weingarten told BuzzFeed News. “We will be here for that ‘oh sh** moment’ when they realize they need things like permits.”

After that, she says the goal is to carry that momentum until November — with some of the students already using the hashtag #VoteThemOut.

“We are also marching towards midterms,” she said, adding that the activists intend for gun control and student safety to be a major platform and key issue for voters in the midterm elections.

I’m a product of public schools and support public schools. I’m not into union-busting. The AFT’s activism, however, could be read as damned good justification for private schools or homeschooling. It’s not the role of teachers, particularly in taxpayer-funded public schools, to organize on behalf of one point of view.

So why is an ostensible fashion and beauty blogger writing about current events?  Most women’s fashion and beauty magazines support only liberal to leftist positions.  I subscribed to Allure and InStyle, as they had been apolitical, but didn’t renew once these magazines became political.  In my humble way, I’m trying to provide a counterweight to women’s fashion and beauty magazines.

20 Ultimate Things to Do in #Montreal #Quebec #Canada

Parks, food, and more. I missed all this when I was in Montreal last spring. So there’s more to Montreal than Leonard Cohen and Pharmaprix and Jean Coutu.

Montreal is a city of old beauty, charm, and multi-cultural influences—not just French and Anglo, but Italian, Indian, Portuguese, Jewish, and Vietnamese (just to name a few).
