My State < Your State

The Mayor of Honolulu noticed a real problem.  The people had adapted to all of his intrusive and un-necessary restrictions on daily life in these days of Chinese SupaDupaAIDS.  To make matters worse, those numbers did what he said they would if everyone adapted to his intrusive and un-necessary...

Hello, Not Helping Department?

We’ve got a call from the USPS on line one: That is roughly 100 million more ballots than there are eligible voters in these United States of America.  If you’re delivering that many ballots in October and November, then we’ve got bigger issues than your delivering capactiy. This is...

Always an Alternative

No entertainment product is indispensable. There is always an alternative, even if it’s just reading bible stories around the living room.  The powerborkers – spelling intentional – forgot that the artificial little tribes they built around jerseys and colors mean a lot less to the public than the organic...

You Get Nothing

We have to shut everything down because it’s all about staying healthy, you see. Which explains why you can’t host a running race on city streets, outside, with tons of spacing and in the bright antiseptic sunlight. Let me walk you through this one.  Locally, the parks are open...

Circumspection And The OTHER You Know Who

Things are getting a little hot out there in internet land, and in the interests of self-preservation, I have adopted a policy of speaking circumspectly.  If you read my last post, you’ll notice that it never directly references the ‘Vid Nineteen.  Nor does this one.  It doesn’t need to. ...

Shoving Corona Brand Toothpaste Back in the Tube

The Power of “Domestic Terrorists”

Not going to lie: there were a few days there when Milwaukee was still burning that things got real tense.  The anti-bad people had their run of things, and even successfully declared independence from these United States.  (At least a few square blocks of them did.)  Mayors huddled in...

The Clumsy, Big-Headed Front in the Culture War

Pundits of all stripes are falling all over each other trying to be the firstest or the loudest decrying the Redskins finally caving in to the demands of the Woke Mob to end their nearly 90-year tradition.  The clever-clever crowd ha also started taking bets on which mascot they...

Viva Le Roi!

Over the last decade the internet has collectively decided that any holiday celebrated by Christians or Americans should be marked with lots of snarky condescension and derision of the celebration.  In that spirit, let’s take this Bastille Day to remember that the birth of the French Republic was accompanied...

The Absolute Madman

If your soul could use a little chicken soup, give A Man For All Seasons, a watch.  When Robert Bolt used the words All Seasons  in the title, he meant it.  And thoughtful modern viewers will find themselves sympathizing and understanding the plight of Saint Thomas More as he stands...
