Weekend Movie Review

22
  I know that there is a lot of anxiety floating around. It may be time to turn off the news and watch an old movie this weekend. Here are a few that you might have missed and at the same time might enjoy. They are offered in no particular order, but I enjoyed them all. You may too. I did not recommend films that were previously recommended...

This and That

Protest Opportunity     Kids are Cruel From the Westmount High, in Montreal, Canada, where Kamala Harris attended, we learn that she had a nickname in school: Camel Toe Harris...

Combating Voting Fraud

  There has been an ongoing concern about "National Identification Cards". I get it. Nobody trusts big brother - including me. However a driver's license is not really identification, but we treat it like that because nobody trusts the Feds. A driver's license identifies the operator as one who has the 'privilege' to operate a specific clas...

Pelosi’s Pork

13
Let me take you back - perhaps back to the future, when the Democrats led by Nasty Nancy Pelosi were trying to get a two trillion dollar plague relief bill passed. Speaker Pelosi is an 80 year old career politician who is one of the wealthiest people in the House of Representatives, currently serving as Speaker of the House, and repres...

  “The side that knows when to fight and when not will take the victory. There are roadways not to be traveled, armies not to be attacked, walled cities not to be assaulted.” —Sun-Tzu   We live in dangerous times, when a new kind of leadership is required. Visionary and ruthlessly strategic. New leaders who are faced with the complex...

A Goat Rodeo

Election 2020 has turned out in much the same way as the rest of 2020 has. There won't be any conclusive indication as to who won the national election until the democrats have found the votes necessary to have won. It may take a week. Meanwhile, this blog offers an open forum for you to express yourself today.

Outcome

  It's all about Donald Trump. The Democrat Party boasted that it was the party of the little guy and they're not. They are the party of American elites, of big tech, big pharma, Hollywood, the mainstream media, special interests and of Wall Street.  Corrupt Joe Biden would have stolen a hot stove (Lincoln used the metaphor) if he could ...

Mish-Mash

  At the White Wolf Mine It's election day and high drama is unfolding nationally, deciding whether we are to be a republic or not. There was high drama during the night at the White Wolf Mine as well. Sometime around 11 pm I was in my office, finishing up on some paperwork when the security light flooded the front yard and I heard so...

Passing Thoughts

  He wouldn't go a Sawbuck A friend of mine (retired USAF Eagle driver) who is a Republican, was over at the mine for dinner last night. He told me that he thought that creepy, corrupt, senile old Joe Biden would win the presidency. He bet me $5. I took Trump, he took Slow Joe. He wouldn't do $10.00. He doesn't like President Trump's "Ne...

Tomorrow – Will be Interesting

  The plague will end day after tomorrow, or it will continue for four more miserable years. It's a bit like groundhog day.   Identify the Aircraft And if you can't, because this one is easy, designed by Clarence Leonard "Kelly" Johnson, then you really need to change your glasses. Black aircraft matter.   A Proverb...

Science Sunday

  Fun with Genetics Chicken/Dinosaur/Chicken/Dinosaur - scientists wondered how a toothed dinosaur might have looked, so they made one. More here... Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid is believed to have crashed into Earth. The impact wiped out huge numbers of species, including almost all of the dinosaurs. One group of ...

  Thanksgiving The People's Republic of Kalifornia has banned Thanksgiving but it's now official and I will be going there. Don't worry, we're calling it a protest, so it will be legal. The police will be there, eating with us - secretly monitoring the consumption of Turkey.  The holiday will be only one of at least two Thanksgiving dinn...

Weekend Update

    Sir Sean Connery died today at age 90. He did well for a lad from Fountainbridge (Edinburgh, Scotland), which was a lot more run down then than it is now in its present state of gentrification. Connery seemed to have lived life on his own terms, and he certainly entertained us all. He will live on through his art and his legend....

Happy Halloween 2020

18
  I hope that you're ready... If you're celebrating Halloween, some on the left consider you to be a super-spreader.  Here on Arizona's Mogollon Rim, there aren't many kids anyway, so no decorations and no anticipated trick-or-treaters. There aren't any Halloween parties, either, and that's a shame, because I enjoy them - ...

Historical Tidbits

  Elephants Some think of elephants as merely totems of free people in America. But historically, there is a different story. Hannibal lost most of his war elephants crossing the alps. However, Pyrrhus of Epirus had 20 elephants in his campaign against the Romans. They were decisive at Heraclea, and helped win Asculum. At his fina...

Lore and Legends

Early Irish immigrants to the U.S. brought the tradition of making a jack-o'-lantern at Halloween. According to Irish folklore, Jack was a blacksmith who had tricked the devil on several occasions. As the story goes, when Jack died, he was denied entrance into both heaven and hell. When the devil turned him away, he gave Jack a burning ember. ...

A Slaughter in the Mud On October 25, 1415, English King Henry V led his small army on chevauchée through France, and met the might of France at Agincourt. "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in En...

Integrity?

23
  Does Kamala Harris reflect traditional American values? Who is she, really, down deep? You know that senile old Joe won't last out the first sixty days in office. There is a large take-away from the past four years. The US Government has become unbelievably corrupt to include an attempted coup by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Wh...

A Few Thoughts

  Make a Choice     Leopards with and without Spots   Amy! The Left was not amused that Amy Barrett was sworn is an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Maybe one day she'll be Chief Justice? During the next four years, President Trump may have two more appointments. Justice ...
