Government Structural Failure

Not only are the roads, bridges and ancient municipal water supply lines in major cities crumbling, but so is the structure of the federal government. Let’s recall the history of the so-called “dreamers.”

The legislature, in its wisdom, did not enact a proposed law which would have allowed minor children (now adults) of illegal immigrants to remain, legally in the US. Obama then made a rare, truthful statement: he said he lacked the executive power under the Constitution to implement such a measure. Then, he went ahead and did it anyway. Not only did the fawning MSM not point out the contradiction, they applauded the action.... [Read More]

Walls of Shame and Silence: Mental Illness in loved ones

This article was published in the local newspaper in Cobb County, The Bright Side’s February 18th issue. )

This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. ... [Read More]

It all started in Kobe.

As we all know the Morozoff Ltd is from Kobe so Kobe started Valentine’s Day.  For the doubters I have put an excerpt from Wikipedia.   If you have any questions, let me know in the comments.

… Morozoff Ltd. introduced the holiday for the first time in 1936, when it ran an advertisement aimed at foreigners. Later in 1953, it began promoting the giving of heart-shaped chocolates; other Japanese confectionery companies followed suit thereafter. In 1958, the Isetandepartment store ran a “Valentine sale”. Further campaigns during the 1960s popularized the custom.... [Read More]

Today’s Kipling – Troopin’

Troopin’

(Our Army in the East)

Rudyard Kipling

Troopin’, troopin’, troopin’ to the sea:
‘Ere’s September come again — the six-year men are free.
O leave the dead be’ind us, for they cannot come away
To where the ship’s a-coalin’ up that takes us ‘ome to-day.
We’re goin’ ‘ome, we’re goin’ ‘ome,
Our ship is at the shore,
An’ you must pack your ‘aversack,
For we won’t come back no more.
Ho, don’t you grieve for me,
My lovely Mary-Ann,
For I’ll marry you yit on a fourp’ny bit
As a time-expired man.... [Read More]

Kurt, The Hammer, Schlichter

Kurt is always a smart and fun read, but today he was coffee-spitting fabulous!  Here’s three quotes and a link to the whole thing.  It’s ironic to have this much fun over such a sad and Satanic episode involving our betters, I know.

(This is a welcome side show to the unraveling of ObamaGate; Rice, Priestap, et. al.)... [Read More]

TOTD Feb 13, 2018: Celebrating Mardi Gras?

Mardi Gras — literally “Tuesday, Fat” — is simply the day before Ash Wednesday, when us Roman Catholics and a few relations begin a period of self-deprivation and critical self-reflection.

The idea is that one must get in a good dose of revelry (and maybe even some debauchery) to tide one through the 40-day drought.  And it is more than just tacitly endorsed by the church hierarchy, as many parishes host a varieties of parties.  Well, they endorse the revelry, at least....

TOTD 2-12-2018: How Myths Arise

You have probably heard the story about Polish lancers making a cavalry charge against a German panzer battalion in the opening days of the Nazi invasion of Poland. Men on horses armed with spears attacking tanks. Often the one telling the story will claim they saw a newsreel of it.

You might also have heard it never happened. That is true. It is a great story, but Polish lancers never charged that Panzer unit. It was a myth. The Poles had horse cavalry in 1939 (so did every other nation, including the United States) and actually did launch 17 cavalry charges during the Polish Campaign, fifteen of which were successful. They never charged tanks though. When Polish cavalry encountered German Panzers they dismounted and attacked the tanks with the anti-tank guns organic to Polish cavalry regiments and Molotov cocktails. The only mounted charge around German tanks was an attempt to escape encirclement – and it succeeded.... [Read More]

The Deep State and its Machinations

I cannot get this business out of my mind.  Probably it is because I never in a long life have seen anything like it before.  This “Deep State” business (I first learnt the term from something Mr. William Kristol wrote)is frightening and appalling.  Although this effort apparently is failing, I am uneasy that it will prompt other such attempts from far out groups, of which the Left is most suspect, in my view.

At any rate, here is an article by Andrew McCarthy that is worth reading, I believe.  I shall be interested in anything any of the rest of y’all think about the subject.... [Read More]
