Nooze-Free 4th of July!

Pictures of the Declaration of Independence

There are millions of public-schooled noddies out there, potential Democrat voters all, who could look at that document up there all day and couldn’t tell you what it is if their lives depended on it.

It’s the Declaration of Independence; and it needs to be proclaimed and reaffirmed.

No, I’m not doing any nooze today. Our country’s birth, that’s the news! “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…” That’s the news.

What? We annihilated Hitler and Tojo, only to be conquered by the New York Times? We watched the Soviet Union slide into oblivion–and Nancy Pelosi’s gonna push us after them?

Be faithful to God, and He will be faithful to us.

The dangers we are in today are all of our own making; but only repent, and God will deliver us.

To this very day our fallen, sinful, deluded world rejects and fights against the whole idea of there even being a Creator, much less a Creator who endows His created beings with inalienable rights. It’s poison to them; but salvation to us. They would swallow us whole; but He has redeemed us with the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son.

For our sins we have the New York Times, the teachers’ unions, and transgender.

But our hope is in the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Is it really that hard a choice to make?

 


Psalm 37

This was the psalm, Psalm 37, that came up for me in today’s daily Bible reading: “Fret not thyself because of evildoers.” Did that psalm speak to me? Oh, yeah–loud and clear.

The ungodly just now are running wild, having a grand time as they pursue the destruction of our country.

Their end is destruction in this world–anybody seen the Soviet Union around lately?–and judgment in the next.

Never, never, never, never give in.


What’s the Next Contest?

50 Quokka Facts: Smiling, Baby-Flinging, Selfie Kings ...

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, happy to report that the prizes for the last two comment contests have gotten to where they were going and it would be okay to start a new comment contest if it wasn’t still too soon to do it.

Y’know, we’re trying to start a world-class university here, aren’t we? They don’t just spring into existence out of nowhere, do they? Like Athena from the forehead of Sherlock Holmes. No, fellow mammals–it takes a lot of work, meticulous planning, and constant care. Otherwise these college types show up and turn it into Stupidville. That is not on the program for Quokka U.!

But what does Lee want me to do? Run more contests! Like I’ve got all this time on my paws! Can I help it if the blog’s month of July fell flat on its face coming out of the starting gate? Who do I look like–Walt Disney? (Actually we have a quokka who’s a dead ringer for Walt Disney: you couldn’t tell them apart.)

Yeah, I remember, we had the Bell Mountain Movie contest that everybody wanted to read about but only three readers ever entered. There was something wrong with that contest, but I don’t know what: it was before my time. Maybe if he had a quokka running it… But I am not going to volunteer to run a second movie contest!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m trying to get Flora Fauna, the creator of The Smallpox Twins, to come here as a guest lecturer.

 

 


‘Centaur Sighting: Bunion, NJ’ (2017)

See the source image

It was three years ago that a centaur snatched a woman’s purse on the outskirts of Bunion, New Jersey.

Centaur Sighting: Bunion, NJ

They still haven’t solved the crime, although they did arrest a centaur last week for not wearing a face mask.

People are now afraid to take shortcuts through the woods around Bunion.


‘Holy, Holy, Holy’

This was the first hymn that popped into my head last night, so I’m going with it this morning: Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty, sung by Neil Rondina. A staple in our churches since 1826.


Dogs & Babies: The Showdown

Why do babies laugh so hard when they play with dogs and cats? And then it makes me laugh! I just can’t help it.

Somebody once told me they had an iguana that played peek-a-boo with their toddler. I was a newspaper man at the time, so the story must have been true.

We Need Our National Mythology

You know what? We need our national mythology! In fact, with all these varmints on the left trying to tear it down, we need it more than ever.

Paladin, played by Richard Boone in Have Gun Will Travel, was “a knight without armor in a savage land.” So we had a whole passel of westerns on TV–all about moral and physical courage, standing up for what is right, thinking independently, and doing what needed to be done to tame the savage land. Maybe they were no more strictly historical than the King Arthur legends; but they pointed us in a good direction.

And I remember one time, going into the bookstore in the mall, hearing this theme song sung with incredible sweetness by a guy stacking the bottom shelves. I thank you for that memory, whoever you are.

We need our heroes back. It was an act of cultural suicide to get rid of them.


NFL to Play ‘Black National Anthem’: Illegals Object

NFL protest proves Americans stuck on stupid - San Antonio Express ...

You mean this league hasn’t gone backrupt yet?

The suppurating mass of culture rot that is the National Football League has announced its plan to play “the Black [suddenly it requires a capital B] national anthem” before each and every game when the season opens Sept. 10 (https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29401000/nfl-plans-play-black-national-anthem-week-1-games). And other Minorities are already complaining.

“How come they get their own national anthem, and we don’t?” said Jose Antonio Schmo, president of Undocumented Immigrants Waiting for Free Stuff. “What’s so special about blacks? We demand they play our national anthem, too!”

“What? No Gay and Lesbian national anthem?” cried Smarty Marty Zilch, last year’s director of “Bottoms Up.” He was answered by a spokes-whatever from the Transgender Activist Coalition: “If your national anthem gets played, ours gets played, too!

Similar remarks have been made by groups representing Native Americans, fat people, vegans, convicted felons, and the dead. They all want their own national anthems played before the football game.

But the biggest minority group of all has not only not been represented, but hasn’t even asked to be represented, much less demanded it.

“We just do what we’re told,” said an unidentified spokesjellyfish for Spineless Cowardly Americans Inc. “Don’t even bother to tell us what you want–we’ve already surrendered.”
