  1. What ever became of honouring those who fought for their country, right or wrong? Is it honour to try them a hundred and fifty years later and tear down their monuments out of pure spite? Union soldiers are spinning in their graves.

    1. "Duty, honour, country," has become a motto for suckers and dupes. An ungrateful nation commends your name to oblivion. The immortality you fought for was a mere illusion. When your country calls, go back to work and ignore it.

  2. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1)

    All charity has been drained from pubic discourse, which is why we are now all inmates in a nut house of clanging gongs and smashing cymbals.

    1. When we turn away from God
      Progress slows to a dull plod.
      The more Man tries to make life level
      The closer he gets to the Devil.
      Leftists daily commit libel
      Against the truths found in the Bible.
      The farther we move towards the Left
      The more we find ourselves bereft
      Of Love and Joy and Sanity
      As we are claimed by Vanity.

  3. At this point in our fractured, debased nation's history, if North Korea were to incinerate LA, DC and NYC, we should be much improved.

    2. FT, does that imply you don't sleep well because of North Korea?

      Why was North Korea created in the first place? I believe that it was created to be a clone of Bolshevism and a client of the former Soviet Union. And as the Soviet Union was originally came into existence with the able assistance of the Jewish financial cartel on Wall Street, and seeing the link in that connection, the real cause for you insomnia could likely be located much closer to home than looking for it in North Korea.

      Have you been watching Wolf Blitzer too much and become a creation of the American media?

    4. I think the country has been on a path, in a big way, toward globalism since the early part of the last century. A good staring point would be the election of Woodrow as President in 1912. His handlers had him allow the creation of the Federal system in 1913—the biggest scam ever foisted on a country, create the IRS a system of taxpayer enslavement to the fraud of the FED. Involving the country in the biggest global wars against the common sense wishes of the country's population at the time were also necessary to advance globalism.

      We have certainly "progressed" well along the road to a communist—Bolshevik utopian slave camp, I'd say.

  5. One of the things bothering me these days are the people insisting that everyone else is Ok. They are not. And to not allow people to expresses their opinion that someone else is a dipstick is a disservice to the dipstick.

    1. Kid,
      You're right!

      To believe that everyone else is Ok is another form of moral relativism and, yes, cultural relativism.

      Why do people actually believe what they instinctively know is untrue? Public education, for starters.

      Delete
    2. You can thank Thomas Harris for that, Kid. Are you old enough to remember his book "I'M OK, YOU'RE OK"? It came out in 1969 and was all the rage among the desperately seekig self help set.

      I've thought for uears about writing an antidote to Harris' pop psych book called I'M OK, YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE but somehow the project never got off the grind.

      Maybe it's just as well, eh? ]:^}>

      Delete
    3. AOW, Public education and peer pressure imo. Go hand in hand I guess too.

      FT, I do know that book. That was back in my time of ignorance was bliss when I thought anyone could be rehabilitated. Wow.

      Delete
    4. I ince believed that all could be "redeemed' too, Kid, because Jesus said it.

      NOW, I'm not so sure. Some elements look truly hopeless, I have to admit.

  6. When I read about ALL the violence that has been happening for the past few weeks, concerning the tearing doe of the Statues, and the monuments, as well as the Marches, Protests, and Demonstrations in Our Cities and Streets, you cannot convince me that Obama isn’t looking at all of this and not applauding, grinning, and calling his leftist, Marxist, Socialist, friends and other anti American Maggots , who were part of his “Resistance” and other devious plans that he set in motion, or was part of this plan...Because of the loss of Hillary Rodham Clinton!

    In Charlottesville Virginia last weekend. There were a whole lot of people in Charlottesville Virginia last weekend who didn’t actually live there, but who were Bussed in for the sole purpose of creating Mayhem and Violence. . There were many different groups represented, a vast number of diametrically opposite agendas and plenty of tension including ANTIFA!.

    ANTIFA = A brainless bunch of Thugs, and idiots.

    1. Let's try to improve, refine and enrich our vocabulary, Oswald. These antagonists are NOT "idiots," "morons," or even 'thgus," necessarily. They are MALEVOLENT, spiteful, vicious, and have no healthy, constructive intent, but those who DIRECT this element and others with similar characteristics are VERY smart indeed. I'd go so far as to call them EVIL GENIUSES. They know EXACTLY what they are doing and why. They mean to DESTROY this country by any and every means available to them, and they are DEMONICALLY clever in tthe way they go about it.

      To combat their evil influence effectively "we" must be smarter than they. Learning how to express ourseves with greater precision, exactitude and refinement would be a BIG step in the RIGHT direction.

      I'm doing my best to try to foster an atmosphere of mutual respect that allows for serious disagreement WITHOUT rresorting to mindless name calling, personal insults, irresponsible attacks on anyone's personality and character, or style of communication, etc.

      MOCKERY here is O-U-T.

      CONSTRUCTIVE criticism would be welcome, but only if couched in FRIENDLY terms.

      Unlike most OTHER blog Proprietors, I will NOT put up with snotty, belligerent, "drive by" quips, sneers, jeers, caustic "critiques," or any other form of perverse tomfoolery or out-and-out garbage that too many blogs not only PERMIT, but seem positively to ENCOURAGE.

      If that seems too pomoous, strait-laced, humoress and intolerant, so be it. I DON'T CARE.

      As I have come say routinely after nearly twenty years on "interactive" websites , "I'd rather be alone than in bad company," and I MEAN it.

    If you're in the path of the eclipse please be sure to use proper eye protection. Some of the eclipse glasses sold on line can be fake.
    The only ones that are safe for direct viewing of the sun have a filter that is “Shade 12” or higher. Experts say those with “Shade 13” are best but may be hard to find.

  14. Jerry Lewis, a funny guy that brought lots of joy to lots of people. A good actor and a man who tried to give back and do good things for his fans and especially children. He was phenomenal in so many ways! Especially his fund-raising and charity work! An all around decent human being that was a blessing to society. Died yesterday at the age of 91.

    1. Yes, he was a pretty good guy –– unless you talk to his first ex-wife.

      };-)>.

      Frankly, I had no idea he was still alive. I thought he must have gone years ago. He was very seriously ill about twenty years ago.

      Since slapstick clowning and braying like a very loud jackass is not –– and never has been –– my style, I never cared much for him as an entertainer, but respected his humanitarian efforts to raise money for the treatment of cerebral palsy and other dread diseases. And he WAS very good to children.

      I hope Eternity will be kind to him.

  16. A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.

    The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow the two groups to do exactly what happened.
    Should the Police choose what they were told or doing what was right.
