Of All the Cotton-Picking Stupidities!

I do apologize for those that were inadvertantly triggered! /sarc A teacher takes the time to get actual cotton bolls, bring them in, and teach about one of the jobs that was widely done by slaves. She makes a point of showing how difficult the job was, and all some Twit came come up with …

And, the Answer to This is:

Regionalize. A fire in a Russian chemical plant has taken out a major global supplier for many important substances necessary for manufacturing and energy production. This is getting to be common. Whether due to extreme weather, political instability, or enemy action (or carelessness, which Russia has a long history with), centralizing the manufacture or production …

I Could Have SWORN I’d Posted About This

I’ve been fussing on social media and with friends, so I thought I’d put it down somewhere on a blog. If I did, I can’t find it now. Here is the reality that I’d been asking for. Life is GOOD.

Parental Rights, From the Perspective of a Parent

You’ve likely heard about the Dread “Don’t Say Gay” bill. That’s the name bestowed on the bill by its vehement opponents. Other than some organizations that are explicitly Christian – and, of a traditional Christian POV – you’ve likely heard little. That’s because the media is going out of its way to find the most …

Life Has Been Eventful

Mostly good, but sometimes stressful. My dog has recovered. He is elderly, though, and likely won’t live for more than 3-5 years more. He is, however, a wonderful addition to my life. He gives me a reason to get up in the morning (something that I’m not always thrilled with – temps in Lorain, OH …

Prep for This Year’s Elections

The FIRST task: Let your party know, in clear and unmistakable terms, that NO Representative will be returned who voted to impeach Trump for Jan. 6th events. NONE. Specifically, wave a check in front of them, and inform them that you will NOT be handing it over, should they nominate one of those Quislings. Further, …

Is This a New Thing?

I had need to consult with senate.gov about a committee membership. I noted that many of the Senate biographical information does NOT provide information on party membership, other than listing the members of sub-committees as Majority/Minority. Is this something new? I seem to remember several years ago, it was common to find party affiliation.

Synonym for Leftist

Clueless Elitist. I saw this, and had to respond directly. My answer:

How to Reform Education

As a retired teacher, who experienced a variety of working situations, from very good to unbelievably bad, I developed some ideas about how to both reform the delivered product to American citizens, and how to reduce that cost. Let’s start with the level that is perhaps the most debased from what any sane person would …

News of the Weird-o

Me. My strange ways of interacting with fellow humanoids caused me no end of torture in childhood. Strange men and boys are tolerated – a little – because of the reputation of scientists of being able to invent something massively profitable (a reputation almost completely undeserved, BTW). But, Nerdy Girls? Nerdy Women? Please! It makes …

What Does Putin Gain From the Damage his Economy is Taking?

If you think about it, he may be clearing out a lot of the Financial Thugs that have stood as a Challenge to his control of Russia. By crashing the money system, and leaving them with little financial reserve, he is clearing the board. Russia is rich in resources; Putin can use them to re-boot …

Disinformation, or Good Intelligence?

I’m leaning towards Disinformation from the Deep State. One of the problems of a generally educated citizenry is that they might just remember prior acts, and make some reasonable deductions from that history. Spreading rumors is often seen by risk-averse Deep Staters as a safe mechanism to achieve their aims, without having to engage militarily. …

This is HUGE

If there had not be the pushback – the outrage, the sharing of memes and stories, the mocking of Trudeau’s ridiculous claims – Canada would still be under Emergency Rules. There are times when I have doubts about how I spend my time. Keeping a hawkeye on the politicians, not only of our country, but …

The Song for the Fall

And, by Fall, I mean – Autumn, not the end of civilization.

The Answer is “Shrink the Government”

The Question is: “How can we get out of this mess we’re in?” A Constitutional Convention is absolutely the WRONG action. State need to take back control of the country from the Feds. Any Convention would be infiltrated by the Left, subverted by special interests, and make it very difficult to get out of this …

One Gutsy Woman

It’s quite a rarity for someone to stand up for their right to speak their mind. It’s even rarer in the elevated locations in the corporate world. That this woman – on the verge of being selected to head the corporation – did so, and also turned down a substantial exit package, all to keep …

A Little More on Earn It

I downloaded the bill’s text (don’t forget, Thomas.gov is now Congress.gov – the old links don’t work). Some of the provisions are very interesting: 4 Members of the Commission “shall be survivors of online child sexual exploitation, or have current experience in providing services for victims of online child sexual exploitation in a nongovernmental capacity; …

Just Woke Up a Short Time Ago

It’s really NOT like me to sleep in. I generally beat the birds out of bed. But, my sleep has been strewed with woke-in-the-night moments for the last several days (NO idea why), so, I didn’t get up until around 8:30. I checked the fridge (most of the things I planned to make were held …

Some Random Links and Observations

I’ve been largely at home for the last few days. The winter storms have left me disinclined to venture out of the heated house without a REALLY good reason. I’m in OH, and, for many of us, NOT venturing out is more the norm. It’s for that reason that we stock up in our pantries …
