Doggie-vous Francais?

Do you like French bulldogs? They’ve got a lot of personality, don’t they?

I hope nobody here mistakes chameleons for French bulldogs. If you do have a lot of trouble telling the difference, there are any number of college courses that can set you straight.

Rejoice in the Lord (‘When the Saints Go Marching In’)

Those last two nooze posts left me spiritually wounded. And then, I don’t know how, I was seized by a desire to hear this: When the Saints Go Marching In, featuring the unforgettable Louis Armstrong.

It reminded me that there are saints out there, and plenty of them, and an all-mighty, all-loving, all-righteous God whose word will not return to Him void.

As Abram came to realize, the Judge of all the earth will do right. And all His saints will rejoice in Him.

Reverse Morality: It’s the Coming Thing

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... (Isaiah 5:20) | Christian  song lyrics, Evil quotes, Bible truth

Somewhere in the dark, wicked evil persons are looking at America’s children and saying, “If the abortionist doesn’t get ’em, the transgender movement will; and if that doesn’t get ’em, and make ’em sterile, LGBTQ will.” The objective is the extinction of the human race (“All them that hate me love death,” Proverbs 8:36).

Okay, it’s a parable. But how else can we explain what’s being done to us?

State Farm, the insurance company, has announced a plan to distribute “LGBTQ-themed books to teachers, community centers, and libraries” explicitly targeting children “Age 5+” (https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/4065606/posts). In other words, as young as kindergarten.

So all the sexual behavior that the Bible–and most of humanity, for thousands of years–considers wrong and sinful… is now not only to be tolerated, but actively promoted by major corporations. Wrong is now right. Isaiah warned us, didn’t he? “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20) What is that but a reverse morality?

Oh, Lord, I’m tired of writing about such things! Who but you can put a stop to it?

If we do everything that leftids say we ought to do–abortion, “sex-change therapy,” and homosexuality–our whole species will die out.

I think some of us need a new insurance company.

They Wanted the Army (?) Called In Against Protesting Parents

U.S. Tanks & Howitzers Passing Through German Town - YouTube

“Yeah, wait’ll they see the tanks come rolling in–that’ll learn ’em!”

This just gets better and better.

Now it’s come out that in early drafts of its infamous “letter” to the, um, president, the National School Boards Assn. “called for National Guard and Military Police to be deployed” against parents objecting to school board policies (https://www.foxnews.com/media/nsba-letter-called-national-guard-military-deployed).

What? They wanted soldiers and MPs deployed to cow parents who don’t like Critical Race Theory being “taught” to children in the public schools–which they pay for?

Apparently so.

One of the drafts said, “We ask that the Army National Guard and its Military Police be deployed to certain school districts and related events where students and school personnel have been subjected to acts and threats of violence.”

Whoa! Where did these “acts and threats of violence” occur? We haven’t been told that, have we? Just take their word for it! Honk if you’re willing to do that.

They also try to deny that they “teach” Critical Race Theory–which they do by changing its name to “Equity Education” or some such bilge as that. Liar, liar, pants on fire.

School Boards Assn. Admits Colluding with White House Against Parents

Parents, pols slam FBI probe into CRT-related harassment in schools

Just so you know…

The National School Boards Assn. has admitted colluding with “senior White House officials” to draft a now-infamous letter to “President” Joe Biden–which the government used to justify sending FBI agents to local school board meeting to spy on parents (https://miamistandard.news/2022/05/21/national-school-boards-association-admits-to-colluding-with-biden-administration-on-domestic-terrorism-letter/).

Why spy on parents? Because the letter accused parents of “threatening” school board members.

How did they “threaten” board members? Mostly, it seems, by speaking out against wildly unpopular and outrageous school board policies: most notably, continued use of face masks, reluctance to open closed schools… and the “teaching” of Critical Race Theory (“All white people are racists”), transgender propaganda, and “queer” studies.

So the NSBA asked the federal government to have parents who didn’t like their policies branded domestic terrorists. And the so-called Justice Dept. was swift to cooperate.

This news did not endear school boards to the communities they supposedly represent. After the story got out, 27 state school board associations seceded from the NSBA.

Now they’re blaming the infamous “Letter” on an interim CEO and saying only a very few of the NSBA’s board of directors knew about it. A new CEO disavowed the whole episode: “The NSBA does not seek or advocate for federal law enforcement intervention at local school board meetings.”

Yeah! It was all that interim guy’s fault! Honest, we didn’t know what he was up to.

Honk if you believe that.

‘But Is It Art?’ (2017)

Image result for images of a pineapple

Remember this? A couple of students buy a pineapple at the supermarket and gull the art museum authorities into displaying it as a work of art.

But Is It Art?

Art has been in trouble for a very long time. Oh, you can still find gifted artists. But all the headlines seem to go to the crapola-meisters. And most of the money, too. I knew a high school art teacher whose art was positively gorgeous–and original, too. She was lucky to have the job she had. No way any of her work was going to make it into a museum.

*Sigh*

Rooster Dominates Man

I know it’s terribly late, but I just couldn’t resist this video.

The man is 25 times the size of the rooster, but guess who’s in charge here.

I’d like to be there when the rooster tells the hens about it.

A Cat Falls in Love

All right, so he fell in love with a coconut. Is that so terrible? And he got music by Mozart to go with it. I can admit that as a single man in my early twenties, I would’ve been better off dating coconuts.
