Thoughts Rising From a Grocery Trip

I happened to stop at a Walmart yesterday (needed a lot of diverse things – shower rod, hardware, and garden). I didn’t find as much in the store that I had on the list, so I decided to pick up a few things I’d been meaning to get at a grocery. Guys, I haven’t been …

Interdependency of a GOOD Kind

Horizontal Relationships, and how they contribute to self-sufficiency. Many on the Right talk of self-sufficient families; some broaden that to the extended family, as well. The Left prefers to think of “The Global Village”, and have a preference for a top-down approach (i.e., “the Government” should run things”). Click on the link to get a …

Where You Might Place Your Biggest Efforts

I was perusing random sites, and found this one, referred by Instapundit.https://commodity.com/blog/us-local-debt/. If you look at the breakdowns, it appears that LOCAL debt is a bigger problem than state debt, for many states. That actually makes some sense, as: State governments usually have a balanced budget as part of their constitution, limiting the amount of …

Idea for Affirmative Agreement to Increased Debt

How about we add a line to the tax forms? “By signing below, this taxpayer authorizes the government of the United States to raise the debt limit to spend more money we haven’t got. I realize that this means I will pay MORE in taxes over the following years.” My guess is that fewer than …

We Are In the Final Stages Before the End

They are waving the “Bloody Shirt”.

I’m BACK!

After a very frustrating week of: Closing on our new home (signed papers in SC, found that the vital parts weren’t signed/transmitted), traveled to OH to deal with the issue in person (husband traveled all night), and finally got the keys and started moving stuff in. We had electricity, but not gas, water, or internet. …

Rationing Liquor – Who Will That Affect

From the list of brands affected, it looks like women and the men that are trying to impress them, Black people, and Rednecks with taste (the Rye). Frankly, any man who spends as much as Dom Perignon costs (it can run over $200 a bottle!), is either trying to score with a woman who is …

What Belief Can Teach Science

I found this on Wired. Perhaps not surprisingly, those Tech Nerds are flabbergasted at the idea that religions’ practices have practical application for modern people. As a Catholic, I come from a long heritage of scientists with strong religious convictions – Pascal, Descartes, Copernicus, Lemaitre, Mendel, Mercalli, Lavoisier, Doppler, to just name a few. Check …

They Want to ‘Pretty Over’ the Wounds

The memorials – flowing water, ‘pretty speeches’ (well, if you don’t consider the politicized speech of the former president slamming the NLD (Non-Leftist Dissidents) as Domestic Terrorists), and and fervent undercurrent of “Let’s Forget”. That’s the Democratic Legacy of 9/11. It was Terribly Inconvenient of the Taliban not to cooperate in a quick and “victorious” …

Post 20th Year Ceremonies – What Remains of the Republic?

It was said to have been uttered by Ben Franklin. It may have been, he was apparently quick with pithy sayings (not always his own). At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787,  Franklin was queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, …

Watching the 20th Remembrance of 9/11 Victims

Every year, I watch this – either the televised services, or the ceremonies that were held at the schools I taught at. The Southern schools do this well. Most of the schools have an active JROTC program, and the students take their participation very seriously. School leaders, community members – both present and past serving, …

Note the Exempted Groups – Those That Colluded with the Steal

Postal Workers – whose facilitation of the movement of the fake ballots – through the postmarks that were backdated, enabled a veneer of respectability to cover the shenigans. Teachers – another group that is largely exempt from forced vaccination. NGOs are generally under the number of employees (100), and should be exempt from the mandatory …

Looking at Some Maps of the World

I was reading some stories about the aggressive moves of China in the world – their attempts to impose cultural hegemony in the West, their moves to take over the waterways near them, how they use their market share like a club to get concessions from Western firms – and I realized that I needed …

Why Your Facebook Friends are not Responding to You

It’s not complicated. They fully recognize that the entire basis for their self-image of themselves – that they were rational, fair, and not partisan – is a lie. They twist into pretzels, trying to justify applying different standards to similar actions. Every time that they think they’ve escaped a logic trap, OOOPS, Biden does it …

Nice to Know that ALL State Leaders Haven’t Lost Their Mind

Why do I write that? Because 20 of the states, including 3 I have connections to (OH, WV, and SC), are part of a lawsuit of the Biden Administration to stop them from mandating Men in Women’s facilities. It’s time for Americans to agree on at least ONE thing – that if an individual hold …

Saturday Miscellany

Political Donations by State. I happened to find a link to Open Secrets, a site that tracks political donations by individual, party, political organization, and state. That last interested me, as I was wondering about the connection between money and voting patterns. As you can see below, the outcomes in GA and MI appear to …

If Strong Language Upsets You,…

DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK. I’ve noticed the same sudden silence of the “You are so STUPID to back Trump!” crowd. After months of haranguing me and the rest of their social feed, it’s like they had been Raptured. Gone. MIA. Quieter than a kidnap victim with a K-Bar to her throat. Gee, I wonder …

What’s Up With Scott Adams?

I have enjoyed the Dilbert cartoons over the years. The cartoons have appealed to all of us who have been in the bowels of large companies/organizations, whether public or private, nonprofit or – allegedly – for profit. They are quirky, absurdist, and strangely appealing to the Everyman that lives with arbitrary rules, unfair employment practices, …

The Elite Have Thrown Down the Hammer

Kah-mah-la has delivered a smackdown to the proles that infest the Non-Elites in the Not-the-Coast. “Christmas has come early for Washington’s enemies. Literally. Kackling Kamala Harris was dispatched to Singapore to assure our allies that the hyperpower was not a complete laughingstock. Instead, she told her hosts that it’s beginning to look a lot like …
