Comeuppance…

I think Jorge Ramos is an uppity,  snide,  anti-American elitist.   He has been Univision’s star anchor for years,  an apologist for some of the most awful people in the world.   Did he think Venezuela’s Maduro would tolerate any truth being shown during the big interview?  Jorge was treated quite  gently —  merely jailed, robbed of all his expensive equipment,  and deported.   The question is:  will he admit to his own blindness, or will he manufacture some more excuses?

Still honored…

A British man has faithfully tended the memorial to the crew of the B-17 nicknamed “Mi Amigo,”  which crashed in the woods rather than land in  a Sheffield park where children were playing.

Tony Foulds was one of the children saved by the deliberate sacrifice of the U.S. crew  —  thus his devotion,  which is now  being recognized,  Thank you,  Mr. Foulds.

Oscar week…

leave a comment »

I didn’t waste more than three seconds contemplating the  dwindling in importance Oscars,  but I found  this piece on Jimmy the Raven quite interesting and well-worth a couple of minutes to read it.  I will henceforth refer to the hollywood snots,  not as bird-brained,  which is an insult to a very intelligent avian actor,  but as just plain stupid and unaware.

As it turned out,  sore losers  were featured,  along with  category winners.   Even the  critics were displeased.  Would it have seemed better with  a host?  Aren’t you glad you watched something else last night?

How expected…

I’ve been waiting several days for  this excuse to come out,  but I’m curious as to why it took Smollett so long to think of it.   Now I want to hear what drug(s) made him a bald-faced liar and fantasist,  yet allowed him to keep a job which required at least a modicum of acting skills.   Perhaps he’ll come up with an answer after he throws his enabler buddies under the bus.

Plowing for God…

This teen  took advantage of the socialist haven of Seattle and its inability to deal with snowstorms.   Her took his plow to the city and worked like a dog in frigid temperatures making driveways and parking lots navigable,  He’s giving 20% of the money he made in a short time to his church.  That is what I call a smart and righteous young man who should do very well in life.

Progressive intolerance…

leave a comment »

Here we have an Ohio music  store owner who asks Trump supporters to shop elsewhere and thus avoid making him “feel unclean and dirty accepting money”  from them.   This is the perfect illustration of the lack of tolerance habitually displayed by progressives towards any individual or group which fails to slavishly follow their lead.   The owner has claimed he’d rather starve than sell to Trump supporters.  I hope he gets the opportunity to prove it.

Navratilova spoke the truth…

leave a comment »

…which is that people born biologically male retain an advantage over those born biologically female.   For that bit of wisdom the lesbian tennis champion has been kicked off  Athlete Ally’s  LGBTQ transgender board and talked bad about everywhere else in the transgender world.   The truth may set you free,  but it can also get you in a hell of a lot of trouble.

UPDATE:  Thanks to Selwyn Duke,  I have some historical background, and it is only just that he lay the  transgender crap squarely on the doorstep of the rabid feminists.   Transgenderism is indeed feminism’s demon child,  and while they richly deserve to have that nasty offspring chew on them,  the rest of us do not.
