The Inconsistencies of Leftist Arguments

And, here is a prime example: AOC is bloviating about the Dobbs decision, saying that it will kill women, and that too many children live in poverty. Really? Because maternal deaths have plummeted since the mid-20th century. With prenatal health care, delivery is often safer than abortion for the mother, and certainly safer for the …

A Tough Day

My daughter was visiting, and it had been good, after a rough start. She’d been in an accident just a short distance from our house. No injuries, but her car was damaged. Fortunately, it can be repaired, and her insurance company is on the job of getting it back in operation. But, no, the problem …

What 6 Cents Of Every Dollar Looks Like

Take someone like me, who gets around $900 (gross) Social Security each month. If we shaved off 6 cents for every dollar spent, I would receive $5.40 less. Every month, meaning that, over the course of a year, I would receive just a smidge under $65 less. Correction: that number should be $54. 00. I …

What the News is Ignoring

Pretty much everything. If you’re looking for breaking stories, you’re wasting your time watching the well-paid establishment. Nice racket. Collect Big Bucks for parroting Dem press releases and talking points. Interview with a gentle touch tired old Dems, from their flunkies, to long-out-of-office has-beens and never-weres, and – occasionally – get a carefully edited interview …

The Dobbs Decision

Late in coming, but welcome – I wrote about it (and other related topics) here.

My Health, Post-Covid

I’m not fully recovered. Still have diminished sense of smell, still easily tired (I nap a lot), and haven’t been able to fully resume my walking regime. So, overall, maybe 75% better. I DID, as it happens, have the original 2-shot Moderna injections, in April 2021. I wasn’t forced by work, but by relentless nagging …

Let’s Transform Labor Day

And, in the process, honor those laborers who have specialized knowledge that is worth something in the labor market. Now, this story is one that points out the special value to America of some very highly qualified craftsmen. But, many types of knowledge need to be honored: Those that learned how to do their job …

Nixon’s Revenge

I’d been a hard-core Democrat in in the early 1970’s. At that point, I was working lunches and cocktail hour as a bartender, and had time to watch the Watergate hearings in the afternoon. It’s hard for people today to imagine just how addictive they were. The coverage was everywhere – newspapers (at that point, …

Illusion and Reality

I’ve been binging on Perception, as how about a professor of neuropsychology who is also a paranoid schizophrenic. Trust me, it’s good. Today’s episode (season 2, episode 2), is one that centers on how unreliable our perceptions are in showing what actually happened, rather than what we perceived. So, how does that relate to 1/6 …

Why the Trendy Thing is Seldom the Right Thing

Let’s take plastic bags, for example. The so-called single use plastic bag (which often isn’t) is LESS disruptive in the environment than many of the alternatives that are pushed by the fervently pro-Green advocates. City Journal has an article about it that neatly skewers the Meant-to-be-Holier-Than-Thou Crowd, and explains, in simple terms, why their arguments …

Reminder of Some Old Tactics

I was reading (OK, I was avoiding housework and other necessary stuff), and I happened to see a few disturbing stories: This one, that referenced a poll commissioned by the SPLC, that found a disturbingly high number of Leftists were in favor of KILLING their ideological enemies. And, this story, that has a Leftist politician …

The Phrase “Just How Stupid Can a Person Get?”

…was a question, not a challenge. The generation of Feminists that dominated the Democratic Party (and GOP Lite) have been both a major embarassment, and a potent argument for taking back Female Suffrage. Those of us who at least ATTEMPT to use reason as a means of making decisions, and take responsibility for our bonehead …

Wellness Update

I added Nyquil (a generic version) to the mix, and Zicam, and – WOW! I slept like a log. When I woke a few minutes ago, I was clear, not coughing, and feeling almost human. Kudos to the companies that make it, the meds really work like it says. What woke me was not my …

Covid Positive

I tested today, and it confirmed what I had suspected. My son called this morning, asking how I was feeling (I had told him I was sick, and he suggested NyQuil and Mucinex, along with plenty of water. He had been battling Covid the previous week).I teased him that he was just afraid he was …

My Head Hurts

No, not booze. I’ve not been able to indulge in almost 3 years, due to incapatibilities with my meds. But, I have a hellacious head cold. EVERYTHING hurts. Now, it is possible that I have the C-word. My son tested positive, with symptoms. So, no get-togethers this weekend. Doesn’t matter much. The regime of care …

It’s a Pattern

First, there were periodic shortages of toilet paper, and a few random foodstuffs. The Officially Smart People (OSPs) blamed the shipping crisis – which was TOTES Trump’s fault, and not, in any way, related to anything that had happened since the Biden administration had taken over. Especially, it was NOT the New Gay Father (of …

RUFKM?

The notification just under the Search bar says it all – this is the WARNING to beat ALL OTHER WARNINGS! It’s on the website of the National Archives. Ya’ know, every time I think we’ve hit Peak Stupid, something like this comes along. Is there no limit to human stupidity? Apparently not. I’d been having …

Don’t Look to the Past

Focus on the Future. We know what the Supreme Court Justices have done in the past. But, the past is not always a good way to predict future actions. Alito, up until this current abortion case, had been a relatively quiet presence on the bench. However, he was the deciding vote in several 5-4 decisions …

Peak WTF

This is from Not the Bee. Which, I trust a LOT more than most of the long-established media outlets. Right. Because, just what EVERY Normal parent wants their kid to use in imaginative play. People who are NOT women, pretending to be women. Assuming that those people understand what a woman is, given that they …

Just ONE Example…

…of how far the Left will go to achieve their goals. These were individuals working at the local level to express their concerns in a public forum, about the direction that the school system was taking in a variety of issues – CRT, curriculum, parental input into school board decisions, etc. For that effort, they …
