Surber’s take…

leave a comment »

Don Surber has an  interesting take  on the nauseating spectacle which was the 2017 Emmys broadcast.  I didn’t watch it,  and I doubt you did either,  but it serveda useful purpose in letting us see the Left twist itelf inside out being the cool guys.

O’Keefe tease…

leave a comment »

I have no idea what investigative film-maker O’Keefe has up his sleeve, but his saying that media people  will be fired  is enough to make my ears stay pricked.

Drink snobs…

leave a comment »

If you are an alcohol snob or know someone who is,  this is  for you.   I’ve never heard of even half of these things,  though I could pronounce most of them.   Upon further reflection,  why would people want to drink these concoctions?   Some of them sound downright awful,  not merely unappealing.

Thanks,  but I’ll be sticking to a nice cold beer for hot weather,  and a good single-malt Scotch otherwise,  all in moderation,  of course.

Chainsaw nun…

leave a comment »

A nun  uses a chainsaw  to clear a path after Irma passes through,  and it’s a stunner for the world.   In the South,  we just call that doing what you can to help your neighbors.   Where I live there was a lot of rain,  a good bit of wind,  but very little real damage,  so my chainsaw is still in the shed,  awaiting its call to action.

By the way, as with Hurricane Harvey in Texas,  the private sector businesses and invididuals stepped up first to give aid and comfort in the wake of Irma.  We know where the Cajun Navy is.   Where is the Antifa Navy, rescuing stranded people?   Where is the Black Lives Matter Brigade to help anyone?

U.N. misplaces capital…

leave a comment »

Israel is the only country without a capital city,  according to maps published by  the Cartographic Section of the United Nations’ Department of Peacekeeping Operations.   Apparently amateurs like the BBC and His Oneness settle for claiming Israel’s capital city is Tel Aviv instrad of Jerusalem,  but it requires the true professionals of the U.N. to completely erase any notion of  a capital city.

Name game…

leave a comment »

There is a couple celebrating 75 years of wedded bliss in the USA,  and the Washington staters are named Harvey and Irma.   They have been through the Great Depression,  the Second World War,  the John F. Kennedy assassination,  and countless deadly weather events,  though none has ever hit their Spokane home.    They are quite bemused to have a  pair of deadly  hurricanes bearing their rspective names on the loose.
