Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

There are days for sunny morning walks in the garden, where dew-bejeweled roses release their fragrance on the light breeze.
These are not those days. These are days of harsh realities demanding sharp answers. This is now … time for thorns.

Slut walk…

leave a comment »

Christine Sisto has penned a first-class  slam of  the Slut Walk,  a now-annual performance displaying all the ills of militant feminism.   Chief amongst them in my book,  is the notion that a female should be able to dress like a hooker,  act like a hooker,  yet still expect to be treated with the respect one should accord to the Queen of England.   When you have distilled your essence down to sheer insanity,  how much respect do you deserve?   Not much.   If you apparently have no respect for yourself,  how much should others have for you?  Very little.

A garage as thanks…

leave a comment »

The Amish are justly famous for their barn-raisings,  but now they are going to  build a garage  for the Stinson family,  who returned two kidnapped sisters to their home this month.   The Stinson’s garage had burned down while they were on vacation.

Fashion as defense…

leave a comment »

Three cheers to the  four male students  at North Carolina State University who have developed a prototype for a new nail polish line that changes color when it comes into contact with date rape drugs.   Let’s all hope that Undercover Colors not only does good,  but is well-compensated for its brilliant notion.

Of course,  the eternally aggrieved  feminist response  is that this invention somehow encourages the rape culture.   That’s about the same reaction that group has to suggestions of self-defense courses or firearms.   Why do feminists find so  offensive the notion that women should  take care  of themselves?

Once in a blue moon…

…you find a  blue lobster.   This lucky crustacean will join three others of the same hue, and an orange one,  at the Maine State Aquarium.

Korean photographer,  O Chul Kwon,  journeyed to Yellowknife,  Canada,  and shot these stunning images.   Mother Nature rewards the prepared as well as the patient.

A memorial you don’t know…

leave a comment »

This October 5th,  the  American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial  will open,  as a tribute to those disabled by their injuries.   Like some service members,  I’m not overly fond of the name,  but it serves a purpose,  especially with the ongoing failures of the Veterans Administration.   If I ever lose my mind and visit the District of Columbia again,  I will definitely see this.
