Meaningful Dialogues with Cats

Our cat Henry used to sit up on the table with me when I played Strat-O-Matic Baseball. Not because he wanted to see how the 1927 American League season turned out, but because he wanted to grab the little plastic pegs that served for baserunners.  He waited till I had to get up for something. Once I came to realize what he was waiting for, I would tell him, very sternly, “You leave those little plastic men alone!” And he would argue with me–quite emphatically, in fact. He wanted to snatch them up in his mouth and run off with them, and lose them. It’s the cat idea of a good time. He even looked cross when he argued. “Yaaah! Myaaah!” And so forth.


Bonus Video: Elephant Calf Plays in the Snow

Well, we’ve got our first snowfall here in New Jersey today–it’s really coming down. The forecast called for flurries. Wrong!

Anyhow, here’s something we don’t often get to see–an elephant calf (at the Toledo Zoo) playing in the snow and genuinely digging it.

What do you want to bet he’s making believe he’s a mammoth?


More on (Moron) ‘Open Borders’

There are now a lot of Democrats in the House of Representatives who believe in what it says on that banner, above; so consider it well. No Borders. No Nations. Consider it while Central Americans from a “caravan” are invading us across the border at San Diego.

Have you ever–really, ever–heard any liberal explain how “no borders, no nations” would actually work? If there were “no nations”–and if there are no borders, there can be no nations–how would laws be enforced? Who would decide what the law was, or wasn’t? Mexican drug gangs? How would public policy be administered, and by whom? Most importantly, who would write the welfare checks? And collect the taxes to pay for all the welfare?

The answer to all of the above would be “the most skilled at amassing power for themselves, the most ruthless, the most violent, the best liars, and the biggest sinners.”

We could totally forget about the Constitution, or the republican form of government in general. No republican government could possibly survive the stresses of “no borders.” You’d have to have a government that was bigger, stronger, and meaner than any national government (with the possible exceptions of Mao’s Red China, Stalin’s Russia, and Hitler’s Germany–the three great humanist triumphs of the accursed 20th century). Globalists who wish to rule the world understand this very well. We don’t need no stinkin’ Bill of Rights. The only freedom that counts is the freedom to fornicate, anyway.

Make no mistake about it: “open borders” can only result in the destruction of nations, including our own, and their replacement by a “government” more vast and monstrous than anything humanity has ever seen.

The Democrat Party, which sponsors “open borders” in America, must be thoroughly and for all time destroyed.


Woman Murdered in London–with Crossbow

The victim

This really is a sad story.  In the East London suburb of Ilford, a woman, eight months pregnant by her second husband, is innocently washing dishes while her crazy first husband sneaks into the backyard toolshed with a–a crossbow! And with it he shoots her dead (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7746015/man-appears-in-court-accused-of-shooting-heavily-pregnant-ex-wife-dead-with-a-crossbow/). They’re now trying to save the baby.

London, where having a gun for self-defense is against the law, recently overtook New York City in the murder rate sweepstakes. A lot of people getting stabbed, these days: they’re seriously pondering knife control.

Are they gonna need crossbow control, too?

Here is what humanists and other leftids simply refuse to understand. The will to murder comes not from the outside, but from within. Gun control, knife control, yatta-yatta–when it comes to murder, where there’s a will, there’s a way. If they can’t shoot you, they’ll stab you, and if they can’t stab you, there’s strangulation, poison, the old blunt instrument a la “Mrs. Peacock in the Conservatory with the Lead Pipe”… or a crossbow.

The problem is not insufficient government, improperly written laws, or Science that just hasn’t found The Answer yet (but surely will, someday soon). The problem is sin; and the only solution is personal regeneration through belief in Jesus Christ. 

They can pass laws till they’re blue in the face; but as long as they demand a culture that rejects salvation, there will be no salvation available. Only more murders.

 

 


Mr. Nature: Wolf Spider and Her Babies

Kreeg-ah, mangani, Mr. Nature here! We usually think of parental care as something mammals and birds do: but there are bugs and fish that provide it, too.

The mother wolf spider first carries her egg-case with her wherever she goes, and then the babies–dozens of them. The babies in this video look like they’re just about ready to head out on their own. But until they are, the mother will carry them: and if one happens to fall off, she will find it and retrieve it. You would have seen her do that in this video, if only the human would get out of the way.

God’s stuff–He has thought of everything.


‘Jules Verne vs. Stephen King’ (2013)

I know some of you don’t like Jules Verne, but I do. His 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea captivated me as a little boy and continues to be one of my all-time favorite novels.

I thought Stephen King was great, too, back in the 1970s. But I find it a trial to read him now. What’s the difference between these two authors?

https://leeduigon.com/2013/09/07/jules-verne-vs-stephen-king/

I do get awful tired of Stephen King’s “the college guy is the real man–not those blue-collar oafs” schtick. Whatever made him put that into every book he ever wrote, like, dude–I don’t care.


‘Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah’

This traditional Welsh melody, “Cwm Rhondda,” has found its way into many hymns world-wide. Here it powers Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah, sung to beat the band at the Tabernacle Welsh Baptist Church.


My Newswithviews Column, Nov. 15 (‘What We Voted For’)

It is inexplicable to me how anyone but a rock-solid Far Left dunderhead could have voted for any Democrat, anywhere. But they did, and the ensuing mischief is off to a roaring start.

Look for things to get very much worse before they get better.

If they ever get better.


Wahoo! Critters in the Snow!

They’re all here–cows and horses, cats and dogs, even a fox–all grooving on their first snow. Go ahead, tell me some of these dogs and horses aren’t having the time of their lives. Especially the dog with the snow shovel. You didn’t know you could do that with a snow shovel, did you?

There’s snow in our forecast for tomorrow, by the way: so I hope this video will get us in the mood.


Hello? Hello?

See the source image

I’ve been working hard to type up the chapters of His Mercy Endureth Forever for Susan to edit. One legal pad down, three more to go. Huff-puff.

Looking back to last week, it seems I finished writing the book on the very last day I could have written it, before bad weather kicked in till next April. Providential!

Pausing from these labors, visiting the old blog, I find myself asking, “Where is everybody?” There were even spaces available in our town’s last parking lot today, and an empty waiting room at the doctor’s: what gives?

Well, I’ll wait till after supper (meat loaf tonight) and then post a cat video, hoping that will draw readership. (“That’ll fetch ’em!” he thought…)
