Should I go to the post office?

The 22nd is the Enthronement Ceremony in Japan and I have not got my invitation in the mail. Clearly the post office has messed up, right? Maybe I should just show up so as not to embarazada the new emperor.

What does one wear to an enthronement? A megalomaniac would know I bet. I’ll ask DocLor or Haakon.

What would you do if you woke up with Superman’s powers?

“What would you do if you woke up with Superman’s powers?”

I saw this question on facebook in my City of Heroes chat group. It is sort of a fun exercise, but the more I think about it, the more I am sure I would, in short order, be seen as one of the world’s greatest monsters. Lord Acton call your office.... [Read More]

Live: Brexit Debate and Vote

In its first Saturday session in 37 years, the British parliament is debating and voting on the Brexit deal proposed by Boris Johnson.  At this writing (13:20 UTC), debate is concluding on a “poison pill” amendment which would rule out the “no deal” option which many pro-Brexit supporters believe essential in subsequent dealings with the European Union.  After this is resolved, the main deal will come onto the agenda.

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.

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....

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]

The Conservative Landscape

Where do you see the conservative movement going? Which conservative institution will survive and which will be superseded by newer conservative institutions? I sense that some people are leaving “sinking ships” but I don’t know if they are going to something better are something worse.

Nothing lasts forever. If society and technology changes one must not cry, “Stop!” and expect to be relevant. What is that definition of insanity again? ... [Read More]

Conservative Happiness

(I could have used “traditional” instead of “conservative” in the title.)

The problem with the Meddlers/Liberals is they are basically unhappy and need to change the world. They didn’t win so they think changing the rules of the game is there way to success. Unhappy people get comfort in bringing others down. Or failure is when others succeed. Life is unfair when they face consequences. Institutional Whateverism is keeping them down not there poor choices.... [Read More]
