Looking for Free Stuff

5
    It appears as though we're now the United Socialist States. So where do I pick up my free ObamaPhone? Apple is a proud supporter of Joe and Ho. That should mean that the new i-phone 12's will be "free". Right? If it's not forthcoming, I should be within my rights looting the store and taking one. Democrat rules. Headline:...

Where Do You Want to Be?

28
This is an open forum. Express yourself, excoriate whoever you want to, blaggard Joe and Ho, you name it. What am I thinking about right now? You know that can be a complicated question since my brain multi-tasks.  I'd rather be Sailing... really. But I'm working today even though it's the day before Thanksgiving and people are out screwing ...

Thankful?

22
  In Praise of my Betters I feel thankful that there are progressive elites like the Emmy Award Winning Governor Cuomo (D-NY) who guide the "global family". California Governor Newsom (D-CA) has showed the way for the rest of us, because it's difficult to find a person more progressive than Pelosi's nephew. AOC, not to be undone, s...

Things to Consider

    A Sign of the Times   The Dangerous Rise of Populism (zero hedge) Former Senator John (Swiftboat) Kerry made it clear that this "great reset," which is merely a re-branding of the same new world order that has faced stiff resistance for the past two decades, is necessary to extinguish populism. The love betw...

Problem Solving

  Odin's Raven “Oft in the woods is a listener nigh.”  - The Saga of Grettir the Strong       The Great Reset (link) For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt - a new proposal called the "Great Reset" - is the mo...

Welcome to Monday

  Even as attempted illegal border crossings are up 21% as would-be migrants are lured by promises of a free house, free welfare-for-life, free medical care and an ObamaPhone by creepy Joe and Ho, ---- there are other things we can chat about, like neat arcane aircraft.   Ho 229 Germany’s Horten brothers, Reimer and Walter...

Sunday Survey

SCOTUS The recent reassignment of conservative Supreme Court justices to supervise federal circuit courts of appeal is significant. Keep a close eye on that. A circuit justice is primarily responsible for emergency requests (for example, an application to block an execution or to allow it to go forward) from the geographic area covered by his or...

Sunday Sermonette

    Is there such a thing as a spirit animal? Or is it just an albino white tail deer (far more than just a white tail)? That's the sermonette question of the day.   From the Crew --  Of the USS Paul Ignatius DDG 117 "Iggy sends her regards".   Joe and Ho They're still requesting security br...

  The Constitution  Legal commentators on cable TV and elsewhere are regurgitating the line (democrat talking points) that none of the suits brought by the Trump campaign would change enough votes to alter the outcome of the election in Pennsylvania, the Obama-appointed federal judge made exactly the opposite point. The Trump Campaign is...

Submit!

23
  You know that it’s for your own good. Your betters are concerned about your welfare. Don't pay any attention to what they do and don't do.  Just relax and submit. Here, take this pill. It will help. We have plenty more where that one came from.   One of the surprising privileges of intellectuals is that they are free to be scanda...

Clive in India (This Month in History)

Following a telephone discussion with LSP about the value of sepoys (native troops), and because it was a November siege, I settled on this to blog about today NOVEMBER 1751: ROBERT CLIVE WINS A SURPRISING VICTORY AT ARCOT, WHICH HAS LONG RANGE CONSEQUENCES OVER BESIEGING FORCES. Robert Clive, the one-time clerk in the British East India ...

Blue City Blues

  The DC Swamp Beckons In “The Battle of the Century,” Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy’s 1927 comedy classic, the boys inadvertently start a massive pie fight that soon engulfs the entire city of Los Angeles. With chaos in the streets, Stan and Ollie quietly tip-toe out of town as if they had nothing to do with the mess they’ve left behi...

Checking In

  The Old Gray Mare The U.S. Air Force has asked industry to pitch a new engines for the service’s 76 B-52 bombers. With new motors, the B-52s could keep flying into the 2050s. Or longer. The youngest B-52 rolled off Boeing’s Wichita production line in 1962. But it’s not fair to call the B-52 a 59-year-old airplane. Very little of ...

Toilet Paper Shortages

10
    Context and Precedent     On July 1, 1941, a requisition was submitted for 150 rolls of toilet paper by an officer aboard the submarine USS Skipjack (SS-184). As the boat patrolled the Pacific, the requested item never arrived with other supplies. In March 1942, Lieutenant Commander James Coe took command of...

It’s Another Day

  The XB-70  Valkyrie It's one of those aircraft that any of this blog's readers will identify immediately. In 1964, two Valkyries were built - true mach 3 bombers, and they had the Russians worried. Russia's defense community started looking up - and then the US went low and slow(er)  with the cruise missiles and then high and fast ...

The World Around You

  Social Control There are a lot of progressives in the US who admire the sort of social control that the communist Chinese are able to wield. They daydream about how wonderful it would be to have it here. Then they plot to make it happen. Maybe it would be better if we all could be hard-wired into the system sort of like "the Matrix...

The Monday March

20
    Things to Remember This particular article was brought to my attention by Claudio B., a friend from Italy who reads this blog. I think that it's worth your time. As a prisoner, Clark knew that a successful sabotage attack on the shipyard—an “inside job,” as it were—would help the Allied war effort immensely. But he also knew...

Sunday Evening Musing

    From the captioned photo  - Russian: Три Святителя meaning "The Three Holy Hierarchs" (English - Tri Sviatitelia) was a pre-dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Russian Navy during the 1890s. I was casting about for an opener for this blog that would link to the Sunday sermonette and I couldn't come up with anything but...

The Election

14
The only campaigning that Creepy Joe did was to stand in a nearly empty parking lot (the cameras never panned the crowd) and scream into a microphone. But that was enough.   Regime Change I'd like to credit the donkeys with doing something that's unique and clever in this past election when they landed on the idea of rigging votin...
