And the Oscar goes to . . .
. . .the memory of the late Senator Joe McCarthy, whom history acknowledges was right about communists in Hollywood. Yes, the oldies are mostly dead and gone now, but they had children, and some of their children made friends with a zoo full of the most despicable people in the world.
. . .phony diversity. After last year's hell-raising about the absence of black actors nominated for awards, the worm turned and suddenly, wow, black talent dripped from the walls. That's a good thing, of course, in the spirit of the awards, but the atmosphere just seemed so forced, so incredibly contrived, as if there were guns pointed to Academy heads and horse heads planted in Academy member beds.
. . .Price-Waterhouse-Hoo-ha, or whatever organizational name they go by now. Don't you folks acquire major dollars for assuring continuity and smooth sailing on the awards stage? What the hell, you blew it -- since your reputation is shot to pieces now, next year you may as well insert a card in the stack proclaiming some porn movie winner for best film. Which, by the way, wouldn't necessarily be untrue in Hollywood.
. . .the film, Hillary's America, simultaneously awarded a "worst film of the year" by the "Razzies." Unfortunately, there's no way the progressive Hollywood dunderheads would ever thank a film for exposing the snakes on Medusa's head, nor would they acknowledge the stupidity and evil of their dream queen, who quite possibly put lives in danger all over the globe, simply by selfishly demanding a private computer server.
. . .crazy people and mental health professionals, seemingly indistinguishable from one another in these unsettled times.
. . .decades of monster movies, for the most part reflecting that it is we humans who are the monsters, scared senseless by depictions and reflections of our own disguised selves on the movie screen.
. . .staged street mob "protests" -- malevolent hives infected with brain rot, frankly -- around the country, reportedly often paid for by progressive interests. The inclusion of violence on the streets and the shout-down of conservative or controversial speakers on college campuses counts for high drama, but also points out extreme dangers posed by leftists, anarchists, crazies and outsiders who couldn't find a place to dwell comfortably in rational society if they tried. Street mob growth, like fungal cultures in a Petri dish, hardly qualifies as legitimate protests.
. . .cities insulated almost to the point of unlawful impermeability by Democrat administrations whose enforcers somehow deluded themselves and powerless constituents with various proclamations assuring that "sanctuary cities" actually exist under the U.S. Constitution. Oscars in this situation would best be handed out to mayors and other criminal officials who scream the loudest when faced with overdue arrests and loss of funding.
. . .cops, who strive to show enormous restraint. None signed up for the abuse encountered every day and every night.
. . .the military, whose honorable members serve for one purpose only, and whose abilities to get the job done have been squelched for far too long by weak leadership and decisions made by self-absorbed folk worried about their personal "legacies."
. . .NY Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, currently subjecting state residents to all various sleight-of-hand ideas to help them save money, except the money they save will simply be moved from one taxpayer program to another, giving an illusion of saving. Watch this fool become even more active "for the people" as presidential campaigns appear on the progressive horizon. Not to exclude Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, also heir to an interesting political background.
. . .Mexico's president, angered for the cameras by the very thought of Trump returning living and expensive bodies to the country from which they crossed our borders illegally. Whether of Mexican descent or from Central American and other far-off countries, it is Mexico and only Mexico who allowed and, indeed, assisted a plethora of human detritus and its flyspeck anchor baby intercourse activity into the U.S.
The Democrat Party, since acquiring an abundance of radical elements the same way that magnets attract errant steel filings, serves as its own best undertaker. With the votes in for Tom Perez as DNC chairman and the bonus selection of Keith Ellison as vice-chairman, we have a funny little feeling that a descent into irrelevance will continue. For one thing, Perez is an Obama and Hillary favorite, and the decision to keep familiar home fires burning, fueled by the duo who almost double-handedly destroyed Democrat votes for 1200-plus Dem seats all over the country, seems rather misguided. Ellison's appearance surely adds to the frivolity, as there's no way the GOP and others will not try to make mincemeat out of his extreme views and alleged Muslim Brotherhood connections via C.A.I.R. and the like. Yet, Perez claims that he wants to make the Democrat Party appealing to the "working man," whom, as we presume from watching Trump assume the presidency, are the very people who aren't going to fall for any of this spoon-fed progressive claptrap, the only substance the Democrats have to offer.
Return of the Never Really Gone: Hillary and Obama, back again to comment on everything except their own screw-ups. The Dems are actually drugged out enough to keep those who destroyed their party out in front? It figures. Were I a party boss, I'd be nailing up signs on poles begging for blue dog Democrats, because what remains on the radical side won't be helpful.
We must come together and unite the country -- he said, she said, it said: With hardened factions sprouting up and robotics poised to take over a litany of jobs Americans WILL do but won't be needed for anymore, this is not going to make us warm and fuzzy -- especially toward the robot makers, whose robots will then go on to make robots, with no need for human robot makers anymore. And on it will go. . .no wonder some can't wait to escape to Martian landscapes in hope of carving out privacy, even without amenities.

Sweden's fake news: President Trump's comment about Sweden, though off the cuff and in need of clarification, did focus upon a horror story. If Trump was wrong about something terrible happening the previous day in Sweden, it was the president of Sweden himself who basically said, feigning outrage, that there's nothing to see here -- substantially lying his ass off. Could Sweden's prez be that much out of the loop, or is he, more likely, putting a happy face on a culture-murdering Muslim infestation affecting his once proud country? Anybody and everybody, including visiting journalists on the scene, know there are indeed "no go" refugee zones (Islamic refugees mainly, but not exclusively) where police are prohibited (and fearful about) entering. Rapes by Islamic youth gangs of Sweden's young women are well-documented, and few among the innocent dare to shop or go outside when darkness falls because murder walks the streets. Yes, let's focus on Sweden, because as Sweden goes, so goes the rest of the world if swift and Herculean actions aren't put into force against the radical Islamic plague. Sweden's nevertheless socialist leadership apparently continues to wear blinders while innocent citizens and police cower in fear.
Oh, how some love our movie and TV celebrities, especially the star-studded big mouths currently throwing a Donald Trump and Republican-hating tantrum before the cameras. Maybe the joke here is that these glamorized dog-and-pony show actors and actresses -- not to leave out the usual rock star music icons, of course -- comprise the very elite which their supportive fans despise and rail against. Lights! Cameras! Faction! Unfortunately, drawing a picture for extreme leftist celebs never seems to help because of their 24 / 7 insulation from the grit of public life. The Hollywood bunch live lives of utter fantasy, while swooning fans still must pin their daily existence on various obstacles.
Whatever toxic fungus infiltrated the Democrat Party in recent years, causing spellbound followers to do or say things which should rightfully horrify rational minds, any detoxification process would appear doomed. Maybe a vaccination with the money of, it is said, George Soros and other, um, concerned associates wasn't exactly the solution. If the best Dems can do to reinvigorate their party of the future is to throw Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer before the news cameras to cry, complain and take a subtle approach to initiate panic in the streets rather than offer solutions, relevance might experience a very difficult curtain call.
Isn't it interesting how the major TV news shows, night after night, begin with a veritable list of concerns putting the Trump administration in a bad or questionable light, yet while Obama was President there's no way this approach was sanctioned? Obama could do no wrong in the eyes of a complicit media. No surprise, either, that Saturday Night Live has, through Trump, been gifted with reams of ever-evolving comedy material -- and, to reiterate from previous blog entries, it's a shame Obama's myriad of deficiencies were excused routinely on SNL. One would almost think SNL and the mainstream media grew from the same roots. The bright spot: The Trump admin staff depictions, funny at first, are quickly becoming as stale as month-old bread.
An additional word about the mainstream media which the President might do well to heed: Author E.A. Poe aside, the fourth estate's advantage in politics is its role as the "conqueror worm," semantically chewing, digesting and then voiding its prey as a predetermined substance. There is no escape from the press, but when fairness abounds that's not a bad thing. Tweet away, Mr. Trump, but the media will always be the last step in the digestive process, prior to public opinion.
The Democrats are not merely angry, they're pissed. I need to use that word because it exemplifies their depths of rage. And they aren't just immersed in anger -- they despise the very American people who, some twisted minds would suggest, let them down by voting for Trump, soundly rejecting their ideas, intentions which history shows have failed over and over again all over the planet.
Nevertheless, the beat goes on, or, rather, the beat-down goes on, because when street protesters become street mobs erupting in violence, one remembers less than lovingly the era of Obama, when everything the community organizer did or said led up to the current state of affairs in the streets here and abroad, Trump notwithstanding. Taxpayers paid handsomely for eight years of Obama's nonsense and what did we get? Math and science high school students ranking somewhere around 25th in the world. Great job, O.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren: Should'a let her read Mrs. King's letter, Senator Mitch. Now she might sprout wings and fly right into the 2020 presidential elections. After all, what other viable candidates are cooking up as "well done" in leftists' political kitchens lately?
"Illegal" apparently becomes the "N" word when the designation "immigrant" pops up. Amazing how everybody is just an immigrant to the media, no crime to see folks, move on. We sympathize with Trump when his enforcement people must deal with lawless crowds and lawyers and judges who appear to condone acts of illegality. Don't you love the smell of activist judges in the morning?
Quick, put his star on Washington's sidewalk: Stephen Miller, senior policy advisor to President Trump -- wow, this guy makes K. Conway's retorts look like child's play. Interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, he complimented a taken-aback Wallace at one point, calling Wallace "fabulous." Hmm. Really -- fabulous?
Trump's no-no-no from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals regarding his temporary immigrant ban: Intriguing that decisions wielded by this notorious clown court have allegedly been reversed about 87% of the time. A courtroom presided over by the Marx Brothers could have performed better.
Ashton Kutcher Visits the Senate: He appears to be in a lather about human trafficking, admirably pointing out its scope and depth around the world. The real question is, what's going to happen from country to country as robotics take over former human jobs in a big way, thereby freeing masses of aimless people to come up with ways to entertain themselves, or to merely survive? Somehow, we doubt that all the displaced and unneeded will just sit around, harmlessly watching the flowers grow. Because robots will be building more robots themselves, leaving even more humans out of the picture, what's a civilization of purposeless folk to do, if not engaging in various crimes -- including human trafficking as a sport? Just. . . like. . . in. . . the. . . movies.
Otherwise in The Land of Predictable: Performer Kid Rock may run for the U.S. Senate, did I hear that right? I guess he leans Republican, as opposed to bat-poop progressive nuts, but it remains a little creepy how celebrities with either too much money or too much time truly believe they can somehow use their entertainment talents as the key to running a nation -- and all the more creepy to sit back and realize how some people easily vote only for a highly recognizable name.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos goes to school -- and gets bullied just like the students, except the muscle is administered by leftist mobs, educated somewhere along the way by the Radical Leftist Thug Academy. We can't wait to see if kids return to learning about real American history, not America-hating fiction. And good grief, lose that "new math" poop tied up with "Common Core." We trust that reading and writing skills will supplant the importance of high school sports? Or is that my sick fantasy?
President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hold a joint news conference in Washington: I waited and waited, but nobody offered a peep about things way down in Fukushima -- and we do mean way down. How's the Fukushima fish industry glowing these days? When will sunken reactor number whatever it was reach the other side of the planet? How long can the Japanese government hide the truth from its own people, not to mention the rest of the world? Will the next street drug of choice become iodine? Will Love Potion No. 9 be replaced with Atomic Number 53?
NBC News reported about "ghost guns," essentially guns boxed in pieces that anybody can order on the Internet. In a couple of hours and with a little know-how, anonymous customers can assemble powerful semi-automatic firearms, as real as the usual store-bought variety, containing no telltale serial numbers. And to think I was amazed when we learned that 3-D printers could accomplish the instant gun task, though locating the right metal parts to accommodate the finished plastic product might present a bit of a dilemma to some. But the pieces-in-a-box option, wow, particularly useful for those of nefarious desires who can, it seems, pretty much carry out their activities without leaving definitive evidence. While the NRA had no immediate comments, Sen. Chuck Schumer suggested that some sort of legislation should be passed. Then again, if legislators would simply respect the Second Amendment, there might have been no desire for "ghost guns" to fill a hole which, once upon a time, did not exist in the USA. Convicted felons, say thank you.
Daytime TV: I generally avoid it, though I marvel at the soaps, chock full of actors and actresses whom, if not for soap land opportunities, might otherwise be lending their names to straight-to-video movies destined to be unseen by almost anybody, or they might be shaking hands in front of corn chip supermarket displays. Anyway, my channel surfing landed upon The Young and the Restless, which should replace "Restless" with "Listless," and there before me was a mother scolding her literate 15-year-old son (obviously played by somebody far older, and I know this because few 15-year-old boys can speak a series of coherent sentences, let alone be bothered to converse with their parents). Apparently, she was angered because he used her credit card to view pornography online. What? That's the theme on the soaps these days? Hey lady, that stuff's been going on for at least 10 years, so what's your problem? In 2017, update that so the soaps show 15-year-old Mo checking out radical Islam sites on the Net. And -- bonus! -- you don't need mom's credit card! It's free! Not to mention all those afterlife virgins -- and again I emphasize that your reward after death might actually be a tent-load of 37 elderly reclining virgin men, so be careful what you wish for, kids.
In the News: The Catholic Church offers "sanctuary" for a mother of four somewhere. Great, let's make that a trend, except the Church gets to pay for the whole bunch from cradle to grave. After all, the charitable religious folk whose "charity" toward the sanctioned comes big time from taxpayers who have no say in the matter. This mom allegedly made her way with a phony Social Security number, so by rights should be judged and punished by Social Security recipients.
2/16/2017: "A Day Without Immigrants." Oops, once again those brilliant street rodents forgot to display the word, "Illegal." Must be an oversight. Otherwise, yawn, yawn, yawn. . .
Immigration "sweeps" by the Trump administration continue: Good. Are those like sweepstakes, where you win something? Not quite sure -- but I think the rest of us actually do win something. If only so many immigration lawyers hadn't chosen to walk the dark side after college, lawful initiatives could forge full steam ahead. And let's not forget "anchor babies," whose instant citizenships must be banned forever. Anchor babies: Cute, cuddly, hungry, deadly and sucking the life out of a nation whose own youth teeter on the abyss. Will we smarten up?
Crack the egg: How to break up the so-called Establishment in Washington? Composed solidly of Republicans, Democrats and more special interests and lobbyists than one can easily count, Trump as a force of a different color must surely be viewed as a threat to the hive. Will he possess enough leadership ammo to break up the D.C. cartel and bureaucratic safe houses?
Senator John McCain: Even military heroes eventually labor under the same 24-hour clock affecting all of us, and the ravages of time dictate when one really should retire and pursue other options. I believe I just heard the clock strike a new hour.
Islamic roulette: Just my crazy notions acting up, but I wonder, with the depletion of Middle East oil reserves over time, will North America see an equal increase of Muslims fleeing their economically doomed homeland? Central American countries alone currently threaten our national viability as the hordes escape northward Whatever steps the Trump folk develop regarding immigration, they absolutely must prepare to deny access to a never-ending flood of masses with nothing to lose as they keep, particularly, America in their sights. An influx of destruction by the numbers does NOT a "melting pot" make.
Milo Yiannopoulos: Oopsie, he dared say something about pedophilia, and zap! There goes his book deal with Simon and Schuster. Shouldn't a publisher be attuned to the First Amendment business? Milo, don'tcha know that in the current atmosphere of hysteria and rage encompassing positively everything that supposedly decent folks would prefer to see young, unwanted boys die in the streets, rather than be taken in by adult men who might just provide them a better life, maybe their only life? This is nothing new in a world where people face good and bad every day, and sometimes unusual choices are the only options to assure one's survival, whatever form it takes. Show me a perfect world of nurturing bedtime stories and happy homes and I'll show you the darkest of fiction, and I'm not sure that conquering missionaries traversing the globe are the answer, either, for solving an age-old issue.
AND one last word about the press today: News reports are one thing, but to focus ad nauseam on videos and photos of children and mothers, mothers and children, children who look like mothers and mothers who look like children in foreign lands begs the question -- why is "the media" in the position of selectively focusing on these particular groups -- with close-ups -- every time they do a story from the Third World? It's as if they're working for Catholic relief organizations and other "charitable" groups and trying to pep up the old generous American heartstrings to import even more people into the country -- the side-effect being, of course, that said organizations make lots of money off stupid U.S. taxpayers who stay asleep while shelling out welfare benefits forever. If, instead, world press cameras lingered primarily upon adult faces and panoramic scenes to tell a story, sans the "if we could save just one" (which can lead to hundreds of thousands or millions more at our own peril) message, journalism might triumph over cheesy tear-jerkers. There appear to be a fair number of media practitioners intent upon blaming America for every international ill, and our punishment is to clog our borders with a quantity of human detritus sufficient to change, if not obliterate, our culture. At what juncture, we often wonder, does the fourth estate lean uncomfortably toward perfidy? Keeping a free press free and responsible can drive one mad.

Cruising at something far more than "warp speed," imagine an extraterrestrial scout ship arriving and then hovering above New York City just in time to witness the horror of 9/11. Believing us murderous, destructive savages, the crew depart immediately, wanting nothing to do with what appears for all the universe as a brutal species.
Yet, the concept of time means little to such an advanced space-faring civilization, so they wait a few years, hoping to witness something rational upon their return to Earth.
Instead, they discover something even more ominous -- a bowl-like structure containing thousands of apparent captives forced to watch strangely-attired, animated entities running and jumping on one another during instances of brief frenzy. This display of pure insanity, exceeding the limits and concepts of all intellectual extraterrestrial boundaries, forces our alien visitors to retreat back to the depths of the known or unknown universe, perhaps never to return.
We are reminded of Stephen Hawking's warning that we humans should not send signals into space, attempting to contact inhabited planets, because their residents may, in turn, do us harm. Yet, what of ancient civilizations sending out their own signals announcing a distant presence? Would they not someday be jeopardized themselves by an Earth-based expedition composed simply of us and what we appear to be? Let us not give ourselves too much credit.
President Donald Trump does, by nature, say stupid things, his words often spewing forth like semantic bulls in a lexicon china shop. We just dispensed with, by comparison, eight years of a world-class orator, a politician every step of the way, who expertly spoke volumes of pure, unadulterated bull crap and much of America fell for it lovingly.
We hope Trump continues to speak out boldly about all the right things, but despite whatever positive steps he takes in the Oval Office, we wish he would choose some words a little more carefully. For instance, his finest moment surely did not come when he questioned last weekend whether America, among the world's killers, may not be innocent. Trump's enemies will rejoice, of course, but when I consider our innocence or lack of it I have to consider such instances as the military's drug experiments on its own people without their knowledge, that sort of thing. Yes, we have our sore points, but in comparison with the homicidal thug Putin, we can't hold a candle to his expanding reputation and bodies buried.
Nor are we partying currently with a GOP slobber fest. The @#$#@%$# Republicans sat there for eight years and gave Barack Obama pretty much everything he wanted, and for that we eternally condemn their willing participants, all of whom should no longer be in office. Once again, we watch them pulling the apron strings tighter, pushing conservative values and Tea Party Americans aside as The Usual Suspects in the GOP attempt to have their way. Concurrently, ain't it funny how the Democrats suddenly discovered that the USA has a Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence? Maybe it just took the exit of a Marxist President -- and, unfortunately, a proliferation of mobs cloaked in dark garb who learned how to use American values against the rest of us by hook or by crook -- or by explosives.
Additionally, celebrity morons who lord over us and pretend to be relevant just because their names appear on a marquee, lecturing to us brainlessly about any manner of topics, betray only themselves. Good God, how stupid many of these folks truly are when they aren't reading from a script.
Only 109 refugees detained temporarily, and look how the press and other socialist loudmouths have emptied their ammo on Trump, who only appears to be concerned about national security. Yet, should a mass murder orchestrated by the usual radical Islam joy boys occur in the USA tomorrow, the same cretins will attack the Trump admin for not "doing something" to prevent it.
Give me that old-time religion, but don't give me the Catholic Church and officials of other denominations who stuff every "refugee" they can into this country so they can make Big Money at our expense -- and figures seem to indicate that a single immigrant delivered per the Church can eventually cost up to six figures just to make them comfy. How are these churchy folk not human traffickers in their own way? It's interesting merely to ponder that many of the world's "refugees" are products of one religion fighting with another. One can believe in God or believe in anything one desires, but once religions become organized the game changes and the predatory blood-sucking begins. Just look at history. Human suffering? Thank religious components for a lot of it -- and now the USA is expected to take in every unfortunate on the planet until we wallow in our own destruction, courtesy of The Church and other enemies.
Yes, we provide a dumping ground for the world, and don't we love how TV news shows sprinkle immigration stories with close-ups of kids' faces to immerse us in feelings of guilt? The United States cannot accommodate every human tragedy on the planet, but organized and financially lucrative religious organizations will continue pushing that game while our mass stupidity as a society overwhelms reason.
Saturday Night Live: Funny at last! Steve Bannon portrayed as Death itself and Sean Spicer's image reflected by Melissa McCarthy worked well. You don't need to be hanging on a political hook to appreciate good humor and satirical references. The downside -- much of the rest of SNL, true to form, sucked out loud, as if just filler to pass time.
A friendly reminder: Please, please, somebody, please arrest, try and convict Obama. Don't let the perpetrator-in-chief escape (not social) justice, and don't forget Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and a stable of other helpers. Is this not still America, oaths and agreements betrayed?
Former Sen. Harry Reid's "nuclear option:" This freaked-out old dolt who somehow enhanced himself tremendously during his years of, um, public service gave Trump a weapon hotter than a sunken Fukushima nuclear reactor, and when push comes to hard shoving with Supreme Court nominations, Prez Trump should use it if necessary. As if Democrat office-holders in the future won't? Thanks Harry, this is the result of your meddling with established procedures.
Full Measure this week with Sharyl Attkisson was, as always, the greatest half hour of revelations on TV. Her focus upon the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra allegedly causing blindness -- maybe a great deal of vision loss -- in men provided an important alert for males who tend not to "see" beyond their cherished organs at opportune times, anyway. It's also one more example of a pharmaceutical industry gone mad and a preponderance of humans willing to swallow any damned thing out of a container adorned with a pleasingly authoritative label.
The program's headline presentation regarding Citi Group and the crimes perpetrated on us all by large banks -- whose officers remain un-indicted to this very day, thanks in no small part to government sweep-away options -- is disgusting. Maybe Trump's comment about America's innocence should have mentioned the criminality of banking crimes covered up by government efforts, the effects of which "killed" the American dream for thousands.
Isn't it peculiar how anything, even over-the-counter products, go up, up, up in price just because they dwell in the medical realm? Put the word, medical on anything and you may as well hold the consumer up at the point of a gun. Not everything is more costly to manufacture simply because it advertises bodily uses. Of course, the same applies for both humans and veterinary use.

Eight years of rule by a soft-spoken, two-bit dictator masquerading as President of the United States brought us far more than a bill for some 85 million dollars of family vacation excursions. Obama, subconsciously or not, gifted a new attitude to the mini-masses, affirming for them ever so meticulously that any protest is a good protest, even if it's pre-paid by special interests, violent, stupid, misguided or just fun because instantaneous electronic messaging can gather the worst, trashy elements of society at a moment's notice. Even better, accommodating TV "news" media attend faithfully to lend authenticity via sound bites and animated scenes reminiscent of activity at a lunatic asylum. Yes, this is Obama's America -- apparently an America he has no intention of allowing Donald Trump to fundamentally un-transform, as Obama's silhouette has re-emerged to attempt rule from the sidelines. To stay in the game. Obama, the one man most responsible for the destruction of what remains of a tattered Democrat Party. Between Obama and a new DNC accumulation who says she'll seemingly not listen to people of white (formerly known as white people), we expect a Democrat survival circus like no other as time goes on, because all the DNC have "left" in the pantry is loud voices, violent supporters, promises to tax and spend, and a magnetic attraction to lunatics and political misfits of no value to any functioning mind.
Yes, eight pathetic years, and all Obama gave his supporters were golf games, vacations, panic over conservative values, ignorance and human detritus in the streets, community organizing for the mini-masses. Uninformed, sign-wielding rabble won't even take time to read (or care about) Trump's immigration order, and surely they're mostly too young to remember the horrors of 9/11 and why there must be sober concern about those to enter the country. But there can seldom be reasoning with the unreasonable.
Quotes: Just a word about the quotations visualized with each of my blog entries. You probably noticed that almost all come from long ago, offered by people dead for years. Some of the folks quoted are familiar to you, while others are long gone and forgotten. Often, even I don't know who they were. However, if they had something worth quoting I'll put it up. Funny how voices from the past make so much more sense than contemporary "gee whiz" celebrities. My sources, by the way, usually constitute any of a number of books featuring interesting quotes. Surely, these oldies frequently have more to say than I do (thus today's visual poking fun at myself -- I, who really longed, unsuccessfully, to never take anything seriously again after working the military medical shift for four years). Hint: Even the worst visual can save a lackluster blog entry. Hmm -- maybe that's why you keep returning?
The refugee ban: I'm sick to death of all the bitching about use of the word, "ban." So call it a ban! Anything to give the phony street trash protestors and university faculty communists something to chew on while they wait either for their (the former) welfare checks or (the second) books of revelations from Chairman Mao.
Senator Charles Schumer surrounds himself with refugee children and cries for the cameras. Come to think of it, I need add nothing more to this paragraph. Nothing new here -- though I wonder if he cried big tears when American heads were being disarticulated via knife by ISIS geniuses, or when The Wrong People admitted to this country thanks to his Democrat Party went on killing sprees.
A new study warns that anxiety and depression among college students is rampant. Surprised? These young folk spent eight years raised on total and utter "educational" bullcrap in schools lorded over by progressive brain manipulators. By the time "higher education" ruled by this bunch finishes off young brain tissue, frightening and twisting developing thought processes into something alien, producing "snowflakes" ill-equipped to think beyond their own hair follicles as even the basic challenges of life arise, what do we expect to happen? No wonder they medicate themselves into insensitivity (and this can easily be accomplished with over-the-counter drugs provided by pushers known professionally as pharmaceutical companies). Good grief, I want to shoot up just writing this paragraph. . .
Boy Scouts transgender themselves: Gays in the military, yes. Transgendered folk in the military or the scouts? Uhhhhhhh. . .sorry, there are just so many psychological issues, the suicidal urges and profound depression high among them. I think the world is filled with far more psychiatrists, psychologists and other "mental health" workers crazier than bedbugs than with people in need of transgendered self-image alteration via surgery. I guess for some surgeons it helps assure a good living, but in most cases the best course may involve abandoning the urge to pick up the ol' scalpel and instead get a deep understanding of the person himself or herself. The overwhelming need for various groups to gain acceptance and somehow be considered "normal" is a real brain-teaser in our already fragmented society. Me, I'd rather start a chapter of "The Transgendered Scouts of America" and avoid the controversy and misbegotten begging for acceptance as "normal." Whatever normal is.
LGBTQIA: What happens when you run out of alphabet?
The "You're fired" former Acting Attorney General and Obama holdover Sally Yates: Have a nice ride, Ms. Yates? By calculation, I'm sure, she worked to enhance her status with the progressives, thereby assuring a firm place in the Democrat Party. The fact that she did it by ignoring a lawful presidential order, however, doesn't say much about her integrity. We trust the lady herself will turn up very soon as hot stuff in waiting for the next Democrat National Convention. The next nominee for female president in the Democrat universe? Need to get Queen Hil's permission?
Epidemics: It's scary enough that illegal aliens are bringing in mumps and a host of other diseases once diminished or conquered in the USA (it's rather obvious), but I've become painfully aware of the epidemic which never ends -- TV reporters at both local and national levels who use the term, "completely destroyed" when referencing a house fire, car wreck or any number of events. Baby, if something is destroyed, the damage is already complete. Enhancement only wastes words and portrays the source as a joke to their own profession. Is one completely finished once a task is done? Is one completely exhausted when tired after a day of work? Is a marriage completely over once divorce papers are signed? Am I completely terminating this theme now?
Naples, Italy: There seems to be a rather heated concern about a big ol' volcano in the vicinity possessing the ability to kill millions and throw the world into economic chaos, should it blow as it did way, way back. It has been known to dwarf the effects of Vesuvius, the volcano which killed an entire town (including Pliny the Elder) in 79 A.D. and last erupted with less rage in 1944. Should an eruption devastate Italy once again, will the United Nations arrive on the scene to arrest and fine the volcano for environmental indiscretions? Toxins emitted by an active volcano make coal-fired energy plant emissions look like child's play.
The organization, Act for America sent me some information regarding its function, which I already knew about. Founder and president Brigitte Gabriel, interviewed often on various radio and TV shows, heads up this important watchdog group intent upon putting an end to radical Islam's horrors, and flushing its influence out of the USA and other countries where invade-and-conquer constitute its irrevocable plans. You may check the organization out at: actforamerica.org
Black History Month: Okay, but why still? If schools were doing their job -- and we hope that changes soon -- history classes would educate regarding such matters, and it wouldn't take a month to do it. Me, I'm intent upon spending the next 28 days screaming at the TV because it's really time to move on.
