Right As Usual

We're all Born Stupid. What many have failed to realize is that we're not obligated to stay there.

Ya' Gotta Know When to Leave the Stage


And, apparently, the Obamas don't have that knowledge. They are in negotiations to produce a Netflix show/channel. We've had them before in American politics, guys who were so mesmerized by their time in office, that they couldn't bear to leave after their term(s) were over. Jimmy Carter Interfered internationally - a violation of the Logan Act. Criticized the American government that still

Are the Trump Team Experiencing Unusual Security Clearance Problems?


Short answer: No Longer answer: Hell, No In 2008, Ben Rhodes (brother of CBS News President), was denied either a clearance or interim clearance from the FBI (probably in the days when they actually took their mission seriously). That didn't stop him from accessing high-level secret papers. Today's White House has problems, in great part due to the need to staff their offices, but - those

A Liberal's Journey to the Right


I found Red Pill Jew today - he commented on a post on Liberty's Torch, and I looked him up. What a Treat! I spent WAY too much time on his site, but, I just couldn't help myself - he's both a terrific writer with a fresh viewpoint, but also has multiple links to other sites (you know how it is when you start down the Berry Path). I wanted to link to the story of his pathway from Birth Liberal

What Should Be Done with Democratic Felons?


In this case, I do mean the Clintons - there is a forum going on at Watcher of Weasels, and the discussion is lively. Share

But...The Founding Fathers Were Young, So...


This post was prompted by the meme below: The idea being that we should listen, and take counsel from, those anti-gun activists in Broward Co. Keep in mind, they had all finished school long prior to those experiences, and had taken on the responsibilities of grown men.- Lafayette - commissioned an officer at 13. Even though he was accepted as a soldier in the Colonial Army (major general)

"Bright Normal" - Yeah, That's Probably What I Am


I've never been what'cha call an intellectual. I do think fast - I seldom was that kid who walked out of class in a fuzz, totally bewildered by the content, no matter what the class. But, I was never the one who dazzled by the poignant insight, the deft explanation of the philosophical underpinnings of a theory, or could back up my thinking with a bewildering maze of mathematical scribblings.

SUCH a Lot of Interesting Stories!


[UPDATE] From Rotten Chestnuts: By the way, did you know that the collective noun for a group of liberals is “shriek”?  A murder of crows, a shriek of liberals. I've only recently returned to town after a prolonged vacation. When I first woke up, I had all kinds of ambition to straighten out the house and bills, and re-boot my life. That was, until I went online - just to check ONE thing.

Prying Dark Money Out of the Hands of Politicians & Activist Groups


What is "Dark Money"? Here's how one group used it to conceal donors, defeat Roy Moore, and bypass the rules about political contributions. This story was originally published by The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative news organization in Washington, D.C. WASHINGTON — Democrats love decrying "dark money" — political contributions for which the source of funds

Helping Younger Liberals to Reach Their Own Conclusions


Have you ever found that, when you try to use facts and logic to help someone understand a cultural/political situation, you are: Faced with resistance - they just question your facts, saying "WHERE did you hear that?" (the implication is that you had stumbled upon a quasi-Nazi/Alt-Right conspiracy site, and bought the nonsense, hook-line-and-sinker. When you take the time to find the source of

Despite the News...


...most of America is in good shape. I'm at my daughter's house in Cleveland. She lives right in the city, on the West Side (a very nice area called West Park). It's a major change from my house, which is located on an acre of land, and heavily wooded. From her dining room (I'm supervising my granddaughter's homework), I can see the street traffic. The view from my front yard looks like this:

A Long Day, Filled with Maintenance


I got up early, and dealt with paperwork and such for a short while. Then, off to the dentist - turns out I have periodontal disease, necessitating an expensive procedure called Planing & Scaling. I needed a local anesthetic for that - fortunately, only on one side this time. The process was not as painful as the bill. Sticker Shock!!! Take that as a warning - get your teeth in shape BEFORE

This is What a Coup Looks Like


No guns. No armed men surrounding the President, forcing him to sign a resignation letter. No declaration of intent in the open. But, this. Use of government agencies to put forth rumors, feed secret information - verified or not - to compliant media stooges. Refusal to comply with the boss's orders. Refusal to comply with the LAW. Collusion with non-governmental allies, to try to remove

Jamie Gorelick


I remember her from the EPA, but not some of the rest of this. I'm disgusted that so many of the women in powerful positions used that access for such low purposes. Share

The Drum Major Speech


MLK's speech was referenced in the Super Bowl ads. It's a good one - see it here. But, in addition to civil rights, it talks about some of the forces keeping BOTH White and Black people from having the kind of life they would find fulfilling. And, those forces weren't all governmental or societal. Some of them were personal. I'm enclosing a screen shot of someone responding to the ad. Share

Thinking Back on Abortion Decision


I read this post by Frederica Mathewes-Green in National Review. Her thinking parallels much of mine. We expected that abortion would be rare. What we didn’t realize was that, once abortion becomes available, it becomes the most attractive option for everyone around the pregnant woman. If she has an abortion, it’s like the pregnancy never existed. No one is inconvenienced. It doesn’t cause

This is a CULTURE War, Not a Political One


At The Caller, this guy says it MUCH better than I have. Analysis: Leftism is a status machine. A very, very successful status machine. Conservatives have lost status battle after status battle, often because they fought it as a policy battle. It rarely is. More at the link - read it, Share it, spread it around. [NOTE] I've added to this since I posted it - I keep finding other relevant link.

What is Hell?


I'd never seen this quote (Quote II) before, but it's quite apt for our times. Share

A Really Cool Experience


I was given a task this morning - to proofread my grandson's story by Thursday. It was interesting - good dialogue and fast paced. If he continues writing, he could develop into a good writer. Kind of nice to pass on the tradition. Here's some graphics from My Favorite Things by Laughing Dad - if you haven't bookmarked it, do. Share

Assuming You Have No Other Life,...

2018-01-10T09:27:44.427-05:00's a link to a pdf of the Google lawsuit - it's lengthy, but very detailed, and seems to have LOTS of proof of the illegal bias. It seems a delicious sort of irony. The CA law Damore is suing under was originally designed to protect Socialists and Communists from being fired. The SJWs probably never thought that it would be applied to THEIR actions. Share

Now This Picture CLEARLY Says We're Not Just Busty Bimbos!


Frazer Harrison/Getty Images This photo says it ALL: Boobs Side-boobs V-neck boobs Square-neck with an extra v-cut boob (I really can't believe nothing popped out - "accidentally" Leaning in to show the boobs, with a side of Leg and Thigh! Nothing, just nothing says "we're serious, intelligent actresses" like all that BOOB! Share

My New Post Day


I'm going to set Wednesday as the day I post, from now until I have my life under better control. I didn't set resolutions this year. Instead, I contemplated where I had been, and where I wanted to be at the end of this year. Some things I'll be focusing on: Household - I'll continue the house re-organizing (or, in some parts, initial organizing). My goal is to begin hitting the maintenance

Late for Christmas, But...



A Sea Change


The phrase in the title has the connotation of a radical change in a situation. It comes from The Tempest: Full fathom five thy father lies, Of his bones are coral made,Those are pearls that were his eyes,Nothing of him that doth fade,But doth suffer a sea-change,into something rich and strange,Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell,Ding-dong. Hark! now I hear them, ding-dong, bell. I've been

I found an especially thoughtful interview with Bp. Barron on Evangelizing Millennials.  Share

Ungrateful A$$holes


I responded to a Tweet from a French official about WWII. Share
