Reader Help Requested!

A leftid named B. Davin has given my Bell Mountain a 1-star customer review on amazon.com because he doesn’t like one of my blog posts on the subject of the former president–which has nothing whatsoever to do with the merits of my book.

I was unable to figure out how to give amazon a reason for reporting this review as abuse, but I know that a few of you do know how to do this, and I’d appreciate your help. This person has acted out of pure spite, for a political reason, and I don’t want to see him get away with it.


Showing the Humans Who’s Boss

This is the first blog post made on my repaired computer with a new hard drive. Wish me luck.

Anyway, on to the cat video. What’s with these humans? The lady wants to go to bed and the cat won’t let her. Mr. Man tries a gentle application of force, only to be defeated after a second or two. They don’t seem to get the idea that the bed belongs to the cat–if they’re so tired, who’s stopping them from sleeping on the back porch or the kitchen floor? Clearly further training is in order.

*Sigh* It won’t let me post this on Facebook, demanding a password which I don’t have. Oh, I hate technology!

**I can put it on Facebook if I go over to the laptop. Oh, well, live and learn.


We Want Our History

First the statues, then the books… that’s how they do it

To be ignorant of history is to be condemned to a perpetual childhood. If you really are a child, this is not so bad. But what kind of adult wants to live this way?

The Democrat war on history continues in New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo has asked the Army to remove Confederate street names from Fort Hamilton (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/08/16/fort-hamilton-church-lee-plaques/)–because, he says, men like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson “fought to protect slavery.”

For the record, Jackson never owned a slave in his life; and Lee, before going to war, freed the slaves he’d inherited from his family because he most certainly did not want anyone to say that he, personally, was fighting to protect slavery. But Democrats don’t care about the truth.

New York Mayor Warren Wilhelm, who uses the alias “Bill DeBlasio,” says the city will “conduct a 90-day review of all symbols of hate on city property.” He ought to start by throwing out all the mirrors in Gracie Mansion.

And a church in Brooklyn has removed a plaque from a maple tree planted there by Lee almost 20 years before the Civil War.

Mark Steyn calls this a conscious effort to thoroughly de-legitimize all of U.S. history, an act of willful barbarism. He has called it what it is.

And the question must be asked: Why are we permitting this? Okay, I understand, Democrats and other leftids hate America and want to turn it into something else, with themselves as its rulers. But what about the rest of us? Why do we allow this to go forward? Why do we consent to be governed by scoundrels and cowards who refuse to protect our nation’s history?

The war on the dead continues, and here we are with our hands in our pockets, being very small and quiet.


What is a Nazi?

Leftids these days throw this label around like confetti: everybody they don’t like is a “nazi.” That would be most of us.

But what, in fact, is a Nazi? Do these people know what they’re talking about? (Hint: no)

To set the record straight, a Nazi:

–Is a follower of Adolf Hitler, who has been dead since 1945, which makes him rather difficult to follow.

–Belongs to the Nazi Party. “Nazi,” by the way, is short for “National Socialist Workers Party.” In other words, technically speaking, the Nazis were on the Far Left of the political spectrum, not the Far Right. They were a socialist workers’ party with a nationalist slant. It need hardly be said that they, like Democrats, believed in a highly-centralized, all-powerful central government.

–Believes that his “race,” whatever it may be, is far superior to other races, and that the “inferior races” should be either enslaved or killed off.

Actually, there are really very few people who believe in those things and who fit the above description. Nazis made their mark in German politics by using street violence as their favorite means of discourse. It took them all the way to the top.

Who in America today is using street violence to intimidate the public and to get their way? They may not be true followers of Hitler–that would require them to read Mein Kampf, which would be too much trouble; and all they know about “race” is that they hate white people and all “minorities,” except maybe Asians, are the berries. But in all other respects, in demeanor and in method, the wackos of the Far Left are the closest we come to Nazis in America.


More Festival of Idiocy

Robert Lee and Robert E. Lee. No relation.

ESPN didn’t want to offend anybody, so they yanked one of their regular sportscasters off covering a football game… because his name is Robert Lee (https://www.outkickthecoverage.com/msespn-pulls-asian-announcer-named-robert-lee-off-uva-game-avoid-offending-idiots/) and that would, like, y’know, just freak people out, man! I mean, he’s named after a Confederate general, betcha anything he owns slaves…

Mr. Lee is of Chinese extraction. Lee is a very common Chinese surname.

Uh, Democrats–really, how many new votes do you expect to get out of these shenanigans? Do you really expect to surf back into power on the crest of the Civil War? Didn’t your side lose, the last time we had the Civil War? Who in the world do you think is going to suddenly smack his forehead and cry out, “Oh, I see! I see it now! Oh, I shoulda been a liberal!”

The sooner these people fall off into oblivion, the better for the rest of us.

‘Shall We Gather at the River?’

This was one of my Uncle Bernie’s favorite hymns. Obliged to rush out to the doctor’s this morning, I don’t have time to be very selective. Note the baby sort of taking part with the other two generations: courtesy of Nathan and Lyle from Denton County, Texas, music-folk-play-hymns.com .


The Cat as Seeker of Knowledge

I have no idea what a bubble timer is, or is supposed to do. Maybe I ought to ask the cat in this video. He is making a study of it. You can see he is of a contemplative bent–not the kind of cat who stuffs himself into a fish bowl or going all puffy-tail at his reflection in a mirror.

The road to wisdom starts at the bubble timer. I’m sure I once heard someone say that.


The Porbeagle Shark

Hi, Mr. Nature here, with the shark that has a funny name.

You never hear much about the porbeagle. It looks a lot like the great white, to which it’s very closely related. It’s a really good idea to get out of the water rather than place confidence in your ability to tell the two apart. But the white shark is notorious for attacking human beings, and the porbeagle isn’t. One wonders why.

Apparently God, when He was creating sharks, used pretty much the same template to create two species with very different behavior patterns. And the more you think about that, the more you wonder.


Progress!

Jack climbing the wall of the Palace of Obann–don’t look down, Jack!–had hardly a more difficult time than we’ve been having since our computer’s hard drive died last weekend. But like our hero, we’re making progress.

Tomorrow morning Adam the tech is coming over to re-install our regular computer. Thanks to the old keyboard here, I was able to write and send my Newswithviews column today. And among the many reasons why getting the old hoss back is a very good thing, I’m just about ready to type and submit another set of chapters of The Temptation.

What will Lord Chutt find as he digs up the ruins of Old Obann? Will Lord Orth come back, or will he venture farther into the East to preach to the Heathen? And will Gurun’s brothers finally make it to Lintum Forest, where their sister is?

To those of you who are new to this blog, I hope you’ll soon make acquaintance with my books. All nine of them (so far: more will come) are available for your examination. Just click “Books” and you’ll get the covers, featuring Kirk DouPonce’s glorious artwork, and sample chapters. Or you can look them up on amazon.com and read the Customer Reviews. If this sounds like a commercial, that’s only because it is. But you can’t blame a writer for wanting readers!
