Ben Garrison – America’s Far Left Future

I don’t always agree with Ben Garrison politically, but his cartoon from three years ago sure nailed it. The following is from today’s newsletter… WELCOME TO YOUR PROGRESSIVE UTOPIA This cartoon was published nearly three years ago. It predicted our future, which has now arrived in full, ugly bloom. Actually, I’m not much of a …

Lowering the Speed Limit to Save Lives

It is known that the motor vehicle fatality rate in this country would be massively reduced by lowering the national speed limit to 35 MPH and eliminating all personal travel. Still, some people resist this, and that really burns me up. What about human life? What about the danger they pose to others by their …

The Most Important Sentence

I have always loved language and languages. “He who does not know another language does not know his own,” said Goethe, and it is so true. Nothing else expands our minds the same way. The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis claims in fact that the language we use to speak (and think) actually affects the way we perceive …

Eaten by Bears

The Apostate Prophet talks about how cringeworthy – and stupid – it is when those caught up in their own virtue-signalling try to show Muslims how supportive they are of them during Ramadan. There is a German word that comes to my own mind when I see stuff like this: Fremdschämen (definition below). I thought …

A Friendly Reminder from Tommy Toilet

Who would have thought that nearly 50 years after this was first published the nation would once again take this to heart. I suspect this is the real reason for the recent toilet paper panic.

Mother’s Day Quote for Rahm Emanuel

Wow, what a neat guy… “Mother’s Day is a tough holiday for Rahm Emanuel because he’s not used to saying the word ‘day’ after ‘mother’.” — President Barack Obama, 2009 White House Correspondents’ Dinner For those who do not know, I love gutter humor. I post this simply to note the holier-than-thou hypocrisy of the …

Pachelbel: Canon in D

Written in the late 1600’s for three violins and one cello, Pachelbel’s Canon in D has certainly withstood the test of time. This rendition from Australia, a String Quartet, with three women and one man. Beautiful, on so many levels, if you are able to see and hear it… imbibe it even, while you still …

Off the Plantation…

Bette Midler recently tweeted out a picture of a Trump rally, saying: “Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be “blackground”?” Cute wordplay, but apparently Bette Midler believes that black people are unable to think for themselves. “Sambo, get back over here!” More than that, she …

Sharpton sets the record straight

“White folks was in the caves while we (blacks) was building empires. … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was. … We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” — Reverend Al Sharpton +2

a time when humor was actually funny

A liberal-leaning friend chastised me recently for something I said on spacebook. I joked in passing (in the comments of one of my own posts) that I had had a friend in the early 1990’s who had made a real nuisance of himself, calling every night and talking at length about how bad his life …

Making Oneself a Disagreeable Companion

RULES, by the Observation of which a Man of Wit and Learning may nonetheless make himself a disagreeable Companion. Your Business is to shine, therefore you must by all means prevent the shining of others, for their Brightness may make yours the less distinguished. To this End: If possible engross the whole Discourse; and when other Matter fails, talk much …

Lincoln on Gender

Abraham Lincoln loved telling jokes. He believed that a humorous story was often the best way of teaching something. This was a favorite joke he was known to have told his sons… “How many legs would a dog have if you called its tail a leg?” “Five!” his sons would answer. “No, it would have …
