Patrick Buchanan – Still a Visionary

In my expert experience, about 15% of Buchanan’s articles express a notable viewpoint or a pithy observation.  His latest is of the latter type.  Essentially, world leaders must be careful what they wish for, and our Congress is full of crapweasels.

Respect for Megyn Kelly


I watched this interview and I have new found respect for Megyn Kelly. She was able to walk away from things for a year. That is a hard thing for some people to do. For they feel the need to put themselves out there. Often times they have to get even and put out a book to tell their side. Fortunately she seems to not bear a grudge and has enjoyed life with her family. “Spending more time with family” is the lie given for multiple departures but in her case this I think is the truth. If you get a chance watch the interview she had some interesting things to say about NBC and Trump.

Time for Summer Pix!

While at Yosemite, I looked for opportunities to take advantage of unique lighting rather than simply add to the huge catalog of great photos of Half Dome, et al.  Of course, memorializing the trip was important for us.  What no photo reveals are the sheer scope and humbling scale of this park.  Ya gotta be there.  Ten days well spent for us, with many day trips including the Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, upper Toulumne Valley & Hetch Hetchy.    The road to Hetch Hetchy gets so narrow in places that I had to fold the mirrors on my F-350 to squeeze through; yikes!  Our campsite was literally on the bank of the South Fork of the Toulumne River at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort, located about 5 miles from the western park gate on CA 120.  Big fun.

DNN: The Truthiest Name in News

In a move to show how unbiased they are CNN has changed their name to the Democratic News Network.

A person on deep background boldly stated anonymously , “We are tired of living in the closet. We want to express our love.” This comes as a shock to Don Lemon who had no idea the network was in favor of Democrats. Anderson Cooper on the other hand had on his “I (heart) Biden” button to mark the occasion.

College Football 2019 – Week 7

Here we go boys & girls!  Amazingly enough, the College Football Experts (employees of ESPN who have designated themselves Experts) are still able to find what they think are original thoughts about THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF!!! {cue dramatic music}.  There are 130 schools fielding teams in the “FBS” division – considered the highest level.  The buzzing noise generators are convinced that the entire 12 game regular season for all 130 teams, plus conference championships, are completely and totally irrelevant outside of figuring out the 4 teams that are going to play in the final 3 games of the season.

Contrary to what those clowns think, your average college football fan isn’t that stupid.  Watching sports, much like politics, is a much more personal endeavor.  You choose your team and – if you are a REAL fan – you cheer for that team regardless of how well they perform, how many games they win.  Yes, you complain about them vociferously, but you still cheer for them to win.  When I happened to attend college, my college’s team was bad.  I mean in my 4 years on campus their best record was 4-7 bad.  There is a satirical column that’s been around for years called The Bottom Ten.  My school’s team made regular appearances on that list.  The only consolation was that our in-state rival was worse.  In the decades since, however, my boys have climbed into the higher levels, even making it to the National Championship game twice in the past 10 years (lost both times ☹ ).  And I still honestly don’t pay much attention to THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF!!! Unless my boys have a shot at making it.... [Read More]

Greta Says…

Greta Thunberg: “How sate you deny? Ratburger.org rocks!”

Now you can make Greta the Mindless Climate Puppet say anything you want!  A graphic designer has created a new, free typeface called “Greta Grotesk” based upon the lettering of young Miss Thunberg’s signs.  You can download the font from this page.  The font is in OpenType format (.otf), which is compatible with many systems; here is how to install such fonts on Ubuntu Linux....

A reporter defends honest people

USA Today ran this column.  A reporter went to visit his hometown, and wrote a column defending the hillbillies for voting for President Trump.

The column tells us more about the reporter and his journalist friends than it tells about a small town in southeast Ohio.   The tone is sad, as in, the reporter is sad that his hometown people say they will vote for Trump again.  He wrote to rationalize them to his pals.

The hometown is struggling, as all of Appalachia struggles.   But more of them have jobs now, and they rightly attribute this to President Trump.

MAGA

I could say there’s a time for every season…

but that’s too damn darn poetic for the likes of me.

Had to buy a new washing machine tonight. Another Whirlpool, will I ever learn? First Whirlpool lasted 24 years, (with repairs I made). Second one lasted 8 years, with a few minor repairs, but the transmission went, the agitator would only go in one direction, when it was supposed to go the other way it made a horrendous grinding noise. So…... [Read More]

One Championship Down, One to Go

Japan’s F1 race last weekend resulted in the clinching of the manufacturer’s championship by Mercedes – for the sixth year in a row.

The Suzaka track is a technical one, with fairly high speeds and more places to pass than most tracks. It sports decreasing radius high speed turns, esses, several places for out-braking an opponent, and at least two high-speed straights, the back one being connected to a high speed corner which takes little braking. Yet despite all these features, the drama was at the start and in the pits.... [Read More]
