  A look at Deaths Mike_C from Yesterday:  I'm "attending" a School of Public Health seminar via Zoom right now. Someone is droning on about "COVID-19", "mask", "training", and "ethics". Needless to say, I'm 90% tuned out, seeing as I've found professional "medical ethicists" to usually have scary and unsupportable positions. (And...

The Coming War with China

  China's Military-Civilian Fusion Mao Zedong (Mousey Tongue) asserted that "to oppose imperialist aggression, we must build a powerful navy." The truth is that ALL civilian projects in China, all civilian fishing boats and cargo ships and nuclear power plants and medical research has two tracks that are inexorably interwoven. The Wuh...

  Four More Years!       Barbarians A lot of different people have fallen under the generic term, "barbarians". Generally the term is fungible, depending on where you're standing. To Ancient Rome, anyone not them was a barbarian to include Hannibal. Eventually, most if not all of Rome's legions were com...

There are a lot of publications, a lot of various authors, and not a little anxiety exists in Asia over the coming war with China. Everyone has a different take on things. With the US selling Taiwan naval mines, anti-shipping missiles and other defensive hardware systems, Red China seethes. They thought that they could bully Taiwan into submission,...

      One thing that America has (may have) learned in 2020 is that voting for the right mayor and governor is just as important as voting for the right president.   Questions Remain Mugshot of Jack Leon Ruby - Dallas nightclub owner who fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald (the man charged with assassinating U.S...

          What are the odds?   I had an argument with an idiot at a gun store and wanted to post a picture. For any of you that think that an M-1 Carbine is just a shortened M-1 Garand. The M1 Garand fires a .30-06 cartridge - a rifle cartridge. The M1 Carbine fires a .30 car...

  A Survey of Religions, Practices and Demographics The source is Pew Research. You can explore their numbers here. These are numbers for the USA. Other nations will differ. Based on Pew Research, there are some metrics that I thought I'd share. I only threw up one chart because they're difficult to read on the blog. I did go through ...

Thoughts for the Weekend

If Pelosi can ram a sham impeachment through the House of Representatives, McConnell sure as heck can ram a legitimate Supreme Court nomination through the Senate before the election. I think that Amy Coney Barrett would make an excellent Supreme Court Justice. The donkeys hate her with a passion because she has seven children and is a d...

So What? It’s Thursday

  There should be a little red circle over Washington DC for the attempted coup against President Trump in 2016. You can call it a "Democrat Insurance Policy" if you'd like, but it was clearly an attempted coup. We need to start calling things what they are. This map was created by the Washington Post, complicit with the attempt to over...

Intentionally Left Blank

  After the "Life in the Country" Quiz I've been trying to work on a "Have you Ever" on a life in the city quiz. So I turned to Jules (from England) and asked her for suggestions. She came up with a few. And I realized that George Bernard Shaw was right. Britain and the US are two people's divided by a common language. I had to ask for c...

    Current US/Mexico Border Wall - Arizona   Stairway Roman Army re-enactors demonstrate how to go over a wall. I realize that the activity isn't being opposed by barbarians, but you don't need scaling ladders to go over many military walls (such as Hadrian's Wall in England). Sure, there were towering fortifi...
