Dang, I Hate the New WordPress!

So much so, I’ve returned to Blogger for my longer stuff. Life has settled down. PT is continuing (causing me to feel like a domestic violence victim twice a week), the tax information has been entered in a sheet, just waiting for DH to do his part, and I’m gradually getting back on track with …

Some Common-Sense Thinking on Privilege…

…and Deprivation. I’m as guilty of stereotyping as anyone. I have carelessly and automatically characterized badly-behaved children – or, even, adults – as the product of Single Parents. Such a judgement doesn’t account for the many terrific people who were raised in such households. But, that really is unfair – it’s not the Marriage/Not status …

Clearly a Violation, But…

…given the likely loss under the currently constituted Supreme Court, not a good time to sue, and risk a loss that would brick in a precedent. That would give the Left a victory that might well outlast their dominance. Yes, this is – for all but the Stupid and Leftist (but, I repeat myself) – …

Dear God! WHEN Will This End?

I’ve been tired of this COVID Theatre for some time (Yes, the British spelling was intentional – this is a High Theatre Production). So are many, and the numbers in favor of ending it are growing. “For countless unremarkable people, being a COVID hall monitor has provided a sense of superiority and importance. They will …

Yet Another Bridges & Roads Project

Well, by now, we should know that that means. Forget the fact that this is Yet Another Bridges & Roads Project (YABARP). Forget that, even for a Make-Work project, this contains a LOT of unrelated pork – the link above has a short list of SOME of them. Remember back just a few years ago? …

Why Dwell on Past Issues?

Because the Past is Never Truly Dead. https://www.facebook.com/lindaf3/posts/10158208599059542 I lived through that era. My feeling about the more violent protesters, at that ignorant age, was “Well, sure, they committed crimes, but…” Like many, I tried to justify much of the early protests as being driven by ‘good intentions’ (and, we all know where that leads, …

The Gulag “Thing”

Now, that term – meant originally to refer to the concentration camps run by the Soviet Union, that imprisoned huge numbers of dissidents, wrong-thinkers, schlubs, and others caught up in the madness of a Fully-Leftist-Society-Run-by-Ideologues – was popularized in The Gulag Archipelago, written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. (I had to check my spelling multiple times to …

It’s Not Just About Freedom

Mask-wearing practices in the United States, at this point, are slowly killing me. Yes, KILLING. Over the last year, I’ve become more and more socially isolated. I’ve lost those easy interactions that added so much to my day – with clerks, fellow shoppers, the people in restaurants, at church. I’m what is called HOH – …

Having Trouble Understanding This

The idea of a “Mandatory Buy-Back” for guns held in private hands (what the Founders called American citizens). These guns – erroneously labeled “assault weapons” were legal to buy when they were purchased. They STILL are legal to own – so far. But, that phrase ‘mandatory buy-back’. Let’s break it apart. First, buy-back implies that …

Gotta Love South Carolina!

There is a bill to make EVERY citizen over the age of 17 eligible to be a state militia member – hence, able to own any gun that is legal to use, regardless of federal law.

CWII – How the Same Problems Persist

I actually studied American History in college – BEFORE it became Woke. One of the themes of history is how a problem that is not decisively dealt with will recur, again and again. Truly, you cannot put off for the future, a problem of today. Make a decision. Live with the consequences. End of story. …

Getting the ‘Woke’ Out

Woke can destroy your company. At the very least, it is a non-productive activity, that is destructive to the bottom line. Read here of how some companies got their Woke out.

Something New for a Birthday Gift

My ‘baby’ brother Ron, turns 60 today. I wanted to do something special for him, but really find it difficult. Like me, he’s reached an age where he can afford whatever he wants – and, like me, generally his tastes are simple, and he is disinclined to stockpile cr@p. So, when I found that today …

What is wrong with this video?

I was watching Biden’s speech about the COVID vaccination progress. The video is like watching an animatron in ‘action’. But, what I finally noticed was the periodic interruptions in the video – an interruption, with lines of color in the middle of the screen – that came up in the middle of the speech. Are …

Anyone Here Live Near the Border?

Or, know someone who does, and is willing to spend some time. Cuz, since AOC is no longer able willing to pose near it, to bring media attention to the “plight” of people who made their own choice to commit an illegal act – crossing the border without the permission of the target country – …

Should They Stay, or Go?

Migrants, that is. For a long time, there have been several classes of migrants: Those looking for opportunities – mostly economic in nature Those looking to escape poverty, crime, and horrific governments in their home countries Those hoping to be reunited with their families in the USA, some of whom may not necessarily have legal …

Google’s Avoidance of St. Patrick is NOT New

I saw this post on American Thinker – pointing out that this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Google Doodle ignores the saint almost completely. It got me thinking, and I found that almost ALL of the saint’s day’s doodles were secular, or near enough. The closet thing to a recognition of the religious aspect of the …

Movies to Watch – Prime Video – 1st Film

I’m watching No Safe Spaces, with Adam Carolla and Denis Prager, among others. As long as you have the Prime account for the shipping, you might as well use it to both educate yourself, as well as to F*** with Amazon. You have to work to find some of the videos, and a few are …

American Stasi

It’s been here for some time. Those people who will ‘pile on’ when they detect the slightest disagreement with their views. Or, when someone who is an easy target says or does ANYTHING. Doesn’t matter what they say. Or DON’T say. Or if they apologize for clumsy wording, if it might be taken in an …
