Just smoke, no fire…

I could go on forever about the Russia nothing-burger that so absorbs the media and the Democrats, but this digitally  altered cartoon  from TerrellAftermath sums up my feelings on the subject perfectly.

McCain long forgetful…

leave a comment »

John McCain’s best buddy,  Sen. Lindsay Graham,  has furiously walked back his comment that McCain  was forgetful  before his recent surgery.   It’s always amusing to watch a Congress critter panic when they have inadvertently told the truth about something,  but the bottom line is that Sen. McCain has always seemed to forget that he gets elected as a Republican.   The instant he is re-elected,  or that the New York Times flatters him,  he happily goes from moderate to RINO to Democrat light, apparently unable to recall  what they all did to him when he ran for President.

Reebok doesn’t want my money…

leave a comment »

At least not if you’re a conservative,  or anyone else who thinks paying a woman a  great compliment  should not be tolerated.   I’ve never worn the brand  because I’ve never found anything in the  Reebok line  that fit properly and was comfortable out of the box.   Now I need not consider the company in my future footwear purchases.

Berkeley students major in hypocrisy…

leave a comment »

Perhaps transference  as well,  which is when someone accuses someone else of doing what the accuser is himself guilty of.  We have heard a good many such cases involving liberal college students,  none of whom apparently have parental units ever willing to bust their butts for bad behavior.   The major change is that student associations now routinely take the side of the claimant long before any facts are ascertained.

They would say this…

leave a comment »

China is whining that the world,  by which it means Pres. Trump,  must stop saying that  China is responsible  for North Korea.  The problem is that China has not only allowed NoKo to exist,  its has propped it up when necessary and derived great benefit from allowing the rogue state to bedevil and blackmail the West with threats of nuclear and chemical and biological warfare.

Pres. Trump has called the Chinese on it,  and Chinese officials are both furious and worried.  Most of Europe is still hiding under their desks qivering.

CNN face plant…

leave a comment »

CNN spent all last week warning that Trump would not confront Putin over election meddling.    You could hardly turn on the channel without seeing these  chyrons.   And then he did bring it up…..oops,  move along now,  folks…

CNN is moving from the Clinton News Network to the Clown Not News Network at warp speed these days.

Work shrinks food stamp rolls…

leave a comment »

States which have re-instituted work requirements have seen a substantial decrease in  their food stamp programs.     If you can get something for nothing,  you generally take that easy route  — it’s human nature,  because we are generally a lazy lot.   If you have to do something in order to obtain something you want,  you are forced to make judgments.  It takes the average person less than a year to run out of friends and family members willing to allow them to mooch off them,  and at that point they go get a job rather than go hungry.

Liberal government officials claim they want only to help the poor,  but what they really want to do is bribe the poor to vote for Democratic while keeping them poor.   You do the poor no favors by making them comfortable in their situation,  but by driving them out of it.   Make no mistake —  as Ben  Franklin said,   many of them do have to be driven out of it rather than simply led.

My neighbor’s yard man is poor because he is poorly educated and has a five-minute clock.  He can not make himself look down the road to what he might need later,  so his entire existence is in the now.  He used to gamble away what little he had because he likes to drink and he has no head for liquor.   He doesn’t gamble any more,  which is a great testament to his efforts,  but he has had little success in developing a longer clock to run his life by.
