Pearls of expression.

Because my grandmother was not a pleasant woman. Cold, vain, cheap, fussy and tactless, far fonder of her friends — of which she had, to me, a shockingly high number; my mother regularly mused about selling tickets to her funeral — than her own family. To whom she could be, frankly, a bitch. ~ Kathy …

Don’t Get TOO Excited

Many of the NLDs are seeing the Chief Justice, John Roberts, declining to preside over the 2nd attempt to Get Rid of Trump, 4Evah, as an indication that the Justice recognizes the legislative lack of standing to try a FORMER President in an Impeachment Trial. That brings to mind TWO possible answers to the persecution: …

Once Again, The Culprit is Bacteria!

Crohn’s Disease, a debilitating digestive disease, has been found to be associated with a strain of E. Coli that is unusually good at adhering to the gut walls, and causing inflammation. Not surprisingly, the research will be looking at ways of interrupting the bacteria’s life cycle, in an effort to heal the gut. So, following …

Stock markets with no foundation in reality.

And now for a glimpse of America’s investment world: We’ve, thus, [reached the] market’s end time I said we would soon reach if stocks continued to rise above such basic fundamentals [sic] during the COVID era as sales and revenue. At first corporations and their investors agreed upon tricked-up earnings from fancy accounting to lay …

The Creeping Pace of Propaganda…

…is accelerating. When will the Official Loyalty Oaths commence? From the Victory Girls blog. Some of that – hell, a LOT of that – is driven by fear. Fear that the Progressive March Through the Institutions is not a Sure Thing. Fear that the Left’s hold on the Gears of Power is tenuous. Fear that …

The Scary Thing About This…

…is that the Jeffrey Tambour character doesn’t seem all that crazy anymore.

Learning To Live With It

The following snippet is from Robert A. Heinlein’s early novel The Puppet Masters:      I dialed for him, and told him about the success of the experiments with the apes.      He nodded. “Yes, I had heard. Sounds good.”      ” ‘Good’, the man says! Colonel, we are on the one yard line and goal …

Watching Some Videos

I’m generally a reader. I read fast (over 1,000 words/minute, unless it’s very technical or containing unfamiliar concepts), which makes it my preferred way to get information. But, most people – particularly those in the 40 and under crowd – are not like that. They prefer to get their information through video. So, I decided …

The Calculus of Genocide

This is an edited and updated version of an article I posted in January of 2013 at my website. It seems timely. It is rare for those who commit evil acts to openly acknowledge that their actions are evil, even to themselves. Very often the evil-doer will justify his actions to himself and others by …

The Importance of Having a Wide Net

I read pretty much everything I run across. Even, at times, the Leftist stuff. I may get into a few paragraphs, think “Holy Sh**, this guy is WACK!” and back out, erasing any breadcrumbs I left. Other times, I will use a clearly erroneous or partisan essay as a springboard to a blog post. And, …

Hard Truth

     I’ve long been an admirer of Ace of Spades HQ and its eponymous proprietor. Ace has a gift for the penetrating phrase, the ultimately concise expression of an important truth. Just yesterday, he fired off one that’s probably his best ever. No, I’m not going to present it baldly; it must be contextualized for …

Newsmax joins the ranks of the toads.

Newsmax had Mike Lindell on recently and Lindell wanted to talk about election fraud. Newsmax’s Bob Sellers pulled out all the stops to shut him down with determined, relentless talking over him and revealing that Newsmax, quote unquote, has checked into this and found that there was no fraud. Yes, and the courts have all …

Taking the Government Out of Militias

Militias have gotten a bad name in recent years. The very mention of them seems to trigger a horror of their supposed intentions to revolt against the government. Why? Is it because the government has declared a monopoly on citizens organizing to defend themselves and their communities? Brought heavy criminal action against anyone working with …

Execrable peasants.

The peasants had a go at one of the hedge funds in the GameStop spasmatron last week and this was not good at all.  Shorting a stock can be a legitimate move based on analysis of market and/or company realities.  Make it a big enough short, however, and other investors might sit up and take …

A Surprising Turn of Life for a Former Star

Kim Novak, who has just published a book about her life, also has a website with her art. The originals have been made into prints for sale to the general public. I was mildly interested, and happened to click on the link. Boy, I was surprised! She really is quite an artist. Her techniques are …

Funny, How Allegations of Voter Fraud are Always “Unfounded”

I have little personal knowledge of Myanmar (formerly called Burma), or its politics. What I do know of it is concerning its Woke-Beloved, now deposed leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, who is the putative head of National League for Democracy (NLD). Here’s what CNN has to say about it (and we all know how reliable …

Monday, Monday…

I’m torn when it comes to playing The Mamas and The Papas songs. On one hand, the sleaziness of John Phillips is almost beyond belief – even for a Rock & Roll group leader. I won’t go into a discussion of the details, suffice to say that it’s a very sordid and – for Mackenzie …

I Like Technology, But…

…The more that tech tries to do more, the more likely it is to fail. Think about it. A relatively simple technology, such as a Raspberry Pi (can be assembled with cheap plug & play elements), still fails at times. I had to return my first Pi4, as it would crash when stressed. When I …

These Are Not the Actions of a Victorious Government

VoxDay has a point – why the worry about dissident thought/speech? Why are they cracking down, harder and harder? Well, we KNOW why. It’s because the Reality is not the Leftist Message. They are working overtime on forcing the Leftist ‘Pravda’ to be the ONLY permitted ‘Truth’. So, that does mean that we are winning …
