Random Miscellany in the Middle of the Night

It’s seldom that I manage to sleep through the night. The only thing that keeps me sane is that I can get up, read for a while, and eventually become tired enough to lay down again for a brief return to sleep before my day officially begins. This is a problem that needs to be …

You Can Extend this Thinking, and it Would STILL be True

The Truth About Bums. It’s true of many things. If you think about it, avoidance of realizing that Truth is the Foundation of Progressivism. Most people are responsible for much of what happens to them in life. Now, some events in life are random – being the victim of a crime. Really? Because, although there …

I’m a BIG Fan of Local Groups

As in, block-level organization. The best ones start off as Neighborhood Watch-type. It can be informal (barbeque buddies shooting the bull, and deciding on organizing to keep an eye on the neighborhood. Those who need to walk a dog are likely recruits; they are out there already, and might as well make themselves useful. In …

2nd Day, No Vox Populi

I found his new (perhaps temporary) site – here. Let this be a warning: The Co-opted PTB can take you down anytime they want. There is no appeal or recourse. It will be unexpected and sudden. So, make sure to back up regularly, offline. Have an idea of where you could post, should the hammer …

The Meaning of Blood Feud, and How it Affects You Today

Here – at The ZMan. Now, this puts the WWI-WWII entertwined and extended wars into a different perspective. The reaction of the Allied side – Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Japan (yes, JAPAN!), and the late-entering USA – to assign all blame for the mess, and the entire cost of compensating the Allied side for …

A Matter of Interpretation

I was reading an article/opinion piece on Class and the New Economy. I didn’t disagree with the basic idea that the younger, Elite-educated crowd tends to cluster in a few Way-Left cities. The writer mentions – San Jose, San Francisco, Washington, Austin, L.A., and New York as the most stratified by occupation. “The creative class …

That Leap of Faith

The third Indiana Jones movie (in some ways, the best) focuses on the conflict between a man of faith (Dr. Jones, Sr.) and one of doubt (Indiana). The elder Jones deeply believes in the reality of God and his son’s story, and uses his research to try to find temporal proof. When they have reached …

YAGO – Yet Another Government Overreach

My take, here.

When You Are Ready to Give Up on People…

Some Random Observations About 1/6


A New Post

At my Right As Usual – The New Generation site.

We Did It. We Let This Happen.

I was reading The Bookwormroom – the post was on the old Highlights for Children – and I started thinking about how much everything had changed over my lifetime. In her post, she contrasted the former children’s magazine, that tried to enlighten children about expected behaviors, in the cartoons Goofus and Gallant, that contrasted their …

Gotta Read This Guy’s Work

Here. And, it looks as though we may – finally – have our house in the Cleveland area. Got a good rate on a mortgage, the offer was accepted, and we’re just waiting for the results of the inspection (will be on Monday, results within a few days by email). If you’ve not used Pillar …

Understanding the Process of the Left

The Z Man has an excellent analysis of the inner workings of the Left, focusing on the Hive Mind. It makes sense, and shows why rational attempts to fight it are so futile. You cannot reason them out of their beliefs. The BEST thing you can do is to work towards structure that will not …

The More We Uncover Their Schemes,…

…the craftier they get in finding new ways to cheat. It’s a moving target – and, like Charlie Brown, we fall for it just about every time. The trouble is, we expect most people to be like us – mostly honest. And, that is true – for MOST of us. But, it is not true …

This Needs to Stop

But, given the culture in the Modern Democratic Party, will not – as long as the *Resident, and much of Congress and the Senate, are in thrall to China and other countries. I’ve long been around Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and other Asian groups). It’s pretty much the standard today in STEM fields. Most are …

A Quick Alert

I’m heading out of town for a few days. The Lord of the Manor will be staying behind, this trip. We’re still trying to nail down a house: That we can afford without dipping into our retirement funds, and that will not require a bridge loan. That is big enough to give us some space, …

Some Thoughts on the Activism of Female-Composed Groups

They really do act differently than majority-male groups.

Lest We Forget

I know that recessions are painful – boy, do I know that! I’ve lived through decades with multiple downs to the economy. Sometimes, we would just dig ourselves out of the last downturn, only to get smacked in the face with the next one. What changed? The economy got better. We didn’t use that to …

A Super Great Morning

I got up early, texted a friend who was planning on doing POTA (Parks on the Air) and – after a quick Bojangles breakfast (I am NOT a barbarian!) – joined her at K-2883 – Andrew Jackson State Park, just outside of my city. It was a beautiful morning – not cold, but very comfortable …
