Quick Reactions (Weekend Sermonette)

The LSP Manse – 

I felt compelled to post a picture of LSP’s headquarters back in Jolly old England. This is the Weekend Sermonette edition of Virtual Mirage and the band of heathen readers need some religion at least once a week. When LSP returns to the UK to take charge, this is where he’ll be living.

The date of the return of Archbishop LSP is still not firmed up but the triumphal entrance into the palace is only a matter of time. Hillary Clinton could speed the process along…

The Blaze – Glenn Beck left Fox News six years ago to forge his own media empire. While he’s personally made a lot of money from the effort, I was surprised to learn that it still exists. Beck is known for not being right much of the time, and in that he has a lot of company from people like Dan Rather, Jeb! Bush, and Hillary Clinton (who is trying to make a political comeback and run for the presidency again).

The Blaze has been struggling to attract a TV audience due to virtually no distribution deals with major cable companies, the Hill reported.

Do any of you actually watch “The Blaze”? Don’t be embarrassed to speak out.

Fish and Chips/Greasy Lips – The Scots have better fish and chips than the English. Glasgow is better than Edinburgh. Northern England (Lake District) is better than Southern England. This is not a scientific study. It’s based on eating (primarily cod) for three weeks and coming to a conclusion. Your results may vary. I think that it has a lot to do with the freshness of the catch.
The North Koreans – They will keep shooting missiles to remind the world that they’re still there. If they didn’t, nobody would care. 
The Chinese and Russians are urging the US to succumb to blackmail from the weird little creature who runs the place, but it’s unlikely under President Trump. One day in the near future they will launch missiles at Guam and that will be that.

A Discussion of ImmigrationCheck this out – George Borjas presents a remarkably clear and balanced discussion of the weight and problems caused (with limited returns) by open borders and unrestrained immigration. (h/t JD) In short hand, we’re back to BUILD-THAT-WALL (and lock-her-up while you’re at it).
James Comey is back in the news with reports that the fix was in for an exoneration of the infinitely corrupt Hillary Clinton almost from the beginning. Allow me to pick myself up and dust myself off from shock (no, not really). I’ve worked with the FBI a lot over the years and even though there is the assertion that they’re not corrupt at the top — it’s still Hoover’s outfit and the institution remains the same. Comey was crooked as a dog’s rear leg, and history will show that more and more as details are revealed.

The Chino Air Show – is a must see, but not at 105 degrees ambient (about 120 there on the tarmac). Oh how the mighty (me) has fallen, but it would just cook me. And it’s too hot to take the grandkids. The Planes of Fame will have to go it without me.

The heat wave (proof positive of global warming – we’re all gonna die) is unfair because in California they’re merciless in collecting the weather tax.

Business Question“What would it take for you to relocate to India for three years?” Answer – All of the whiskey in Texas. Every drop including the stuff that’s underwater in Houston and Beaumont. “No, I’m serious.” So am I. There are parts of the world that I like and parts that I don’t like. I don’t like India and not just because it smells like crap – because people just squat in the gutters – but also because you’re guaranteed diarrhea for – in this case – three years. “So that’s a firm ‘no’?”

  1. How on earth did Glenn Beck get some VM coverage? He has been wrong on everything at all times, a batting average that rivals Joe Biden, and that's saying something.

    Never been to India, but it makes sense that when people just squat and dump anywhere they feel like it, the place will smell like crap. Every Latin country I've been to is the same: Italy, Mexico and New Orleans. The odor is unmistakable as to what causes it – poverty.

    PS- lock her up.

  2. I remember seeing Beck cry on TV all the time about the end of the world – timing coincided with Al Gore's prediction. I was only shocked to see that he was still around and that he had a company. Not for long it seems.

    Korea smells like garlic when you get off the airplane. Thailand smells a lot like India. I like the smell of Switzerland and Norway a lot better.

  3. I haven't heard the name Glenn Beck in a long time. I had to take a minute to remember who he is. So, NO, I don't watch The Blaze. I haven't been there, but India seems like the most crowded, dirtiest place in the world. And Lock Her Up in a cell next to Comey.

  4. Pakistan is a close second to India but the bottom of the punch bowl is clearly Bangladesh. A US based company was sending a number of its people to Dacca and then to Chitagong and hired me to pre-brief those people a few months ago. I haven't been to Myanmar since the name switched from Burma, but have a more positive view of that place than Bangladesh. Hillary Clinton an James Comey could be exiled to Bangladesh. It would be worse than locking them up.

  5. I remember Beck from the long ago machine before he lost his mind. His shows were often very informative and well put together. Then the body snatchers got a grip on him and It all came crashing down.

    As for LSP? He's not leaving Texas. Ever…

  6. Relocate? Far too provincial. I've been in every state except Hawaii and most of Europe. Haven't found anyplace better than the Rockies. Find Canada to be a pain in the ….. on many levels. Back to Mexico? Not only no, but hell no.

  7. I'm looking forward to taking up residence in London and the Palace. But the Mantis People who occupoed it some time back need to be driven out.

    Blue Fang will make short work of tbat task.

    Good F&C survey. I think you're right.

  8. Beck-the-drunk was humble because the world kicked his butt. Then he became famous and hubris overtook him and he started believing his own press. From what I gather, he still has a following of some sort that pays the bills. He's rich now. He can go off and hang with whoever (sort of like Jeb!) and hope that they listen to his drivel.

  9. Heavy is the head that wears the crown. When you're Archbishop you need to beware the poison in your evening tea…served by a mantis in a skin suit.

  10. Hahahahaha. Sorry. The addition about India amused me.

    The Blaze. Internet only. No, only go when a link in some blog post might take me there.

    All this talk of climate change. I hope people realize it is going to keep changing no matter what puny humans do.
    I did read a short article that none of the countries that committed to the… greenhouse gas thing or whatever it was; none of them have done anything to cut emissions.

    Be safe and God bless.

  11. The whole climate change scam was a dodge to try and extract a trillion dollars from gullible Americans. That's all that it ever was.

  12. Hawaii is a liberal paradise, extremely expensive, and the only good thing about it Pearl Harbor.

  13. I used to listen to Beck on the Patriot Channel on Sirius/XM, but only because he was on when I was driving to work. I never cared for his condescending tone, and all the little "inside" jokes he'd make with his co-host. He sounded like a bad 1970's DJ on an AM radio station.

    Our FiOS network carries him, but I haven't listened to him since he got booted off Sirius/XM for some reason I forget.

    Seems like half his "show" was him shilling for some company selling gold coins, survival food, or his own books….

  14. The sad part is how well it worked (works). Freon, florescent light bulbs, carbon tax, on and on.

  15. Yes, he flogged gold and silver coins, dried food and his books, and he made a personal fortune. Is he relevant? I think not. Sad clown.

  16. We could argue the merits of the different levels of Dante's Inferno. Is Pakistan a 6 or a 7? Is India a 7 or an 8? How many devils can dance on the head of a pin? Pakistan is horrible, so is India. Texas is good, and I'm glad that you're up in the dry part.
