Till your own patch, dammit.
Why do important people with GENUINE and MEANINGFUL accomplishments suddenly turn their efforts in guaranteed useless directions?

Dmitry Orlov, who gave us the ONLY clear thinking about the Cold War and the transfer of Sovietism, is now selling a nice school-reform effort that won't go anywhere. Outside the unsalvageable big cities, schools are FINALLY AND AMAZINGLY beginning to move in correct directions. Community colleges are pushing vocational training focused on manufacturing. Public and charter schools are developing excellent job-based science and tech programs. Common Core will increase this positive movement. These schools don't need an external push, and the NYC schools won't change no matter what happens. Even Giuliani couldn't fix them.

Which brings us to Giuliani. He should be the ideal D candidate by any objective standard. You say "black lives matter"? Giuliani's revolutionary changes in policing ACTUALLY saved thousands of ACTUAL black lives, which current D politicians are trying to KILL by undoing Giuliani's policing reforms and destroying civilization. Culturally, Rudy is also perfectly aligned with D tendencies. He seems to be a fag; he hates religion and worships Gaia; he loves every sort of avant-garde coooooool shit.
So what's he doing now? Defending his GENUINE AND HEROIC police reforms against Sharpton and Holder and other lethal enemies of black people? No. He's neglecting all of his own GENUINE work and all of his own GENUINE tastes and opinions. Instead, he's unconvincingly quoting
Sean Hannity's fantastically stupid and pointless OPINION about Obama's OPINION, in a vain effort to gain support from a party that he firmly opposes on all imaginable points.

**Footnote on fantastically pointless: SOME harsh comments about Obama would be valid and objective criticisms IF we were still in the 2012 election. In 2012 you could validly and objectively call Obama incompetent and indecisive. Those are meaningful judgments about any executive, and they are objectively true about Obama. Commenting on his "love for America" or his "Christianity" is neither objective nor relevant. We have no way of seeing inside a man's soul, and those qualities have nothing to do with an executive unless he's leading a church or the America-Lovers Club. But Obama is not on the ballot in 2016, so NO opinion about him is worth discussing AT ALL.
