‘Memory Lane: Shoe Stores’ (2017)

See the source image

Back when you could make sure they fit before you bought ’em…

A few of you live in states where they still have shoe stores. Count your blessings! My little home town used to have two shoe stores right here on Main Street. Now we have none.

Memory Lane: Shoe Stores

Somehow all the “progress” we’ve made in our town consists of losing things we’d rather not lose–bookstore, shoe stores, pet shop, stationery stores, and (heaven help us!) both our hardware stores–and replacing them with trendy little boutiques and dance studios that go belly-up in just a few weeks.

You’d think that people living in such a prosperous country as ours could at least buy shoes that fit.

But then it remains to be seen whether our prosperity can come back from the Chinese Wuhan Death Virus. Maybe the Democrats and socialists have finally got their wish, and America’s great days are over.

Gone the way of the shoe store.

 


Robo-Harassment

If your ex-boyfriend phones you every day, long after you’ve told him, many times, that you don’t want to hear from him again, you can take his butt to court–right? I mean, that’s harassment, isn’t it? Like, it’s stalking!

So how come it’s okay for the same fly-by-night businesses to phone you every single day no matter how often you curse them, razz them, hang up on them, or scream? “This is your final notice…” for the ten thousandth time. “This is an apology call…” “This is an important message…” Yeah, right. That’s why it’s being delivered by a robot?

They call you every day. You’d think, after the thousandth time or so, that it’d dawn on them that you don’t want what they’re selling. But it doesn’t, because it’s not possible for anything to dawn on a robot.

The persons responsible for these calls should be prosecuted for harassment. They should be treated like stalkers, because that’s what they are. And I’m dashed if I can see how they get away with it.


‘Some Thoughts on Memorial Day’ (2014)

Not this year

Welcome to our locked-down, 50 degrees of Global Warming, parade-less Memorial Day of 2020. My family always had a backyard barbecue after the parade. Man, it’s cold this morning!

Some Thoughts on Memorial Day

Let’s keep the holiday in our hearts, and keep it in our minds, and resolve never again to shame our ancestors’ sacrifices by trashing the country they died to protect.

May God grant we come out of this pandemic tribulation a better and wiser nation than we were, going in.

I won’t blame you if you don’t click the link embedded in the original post.

Devil Wannabe Convicted of Triple Murder; or, Why I Read Tolkien

There’s a plastic surgeon out there who needs his license taken away, and probably a public flogging, too. Some people really will do anything for money.

So much of our culture resembles a freak show anymore. We have to seek God’s Word and be nourished by it.

We only note these aberrations in the nooze because as servants of Christ’s Kingdom, we need to know the nature of the enemy.


‘An Invitation to Yoga’ (2017)

Special yoga pants!

My viewership has cratered, these last few days, my computer’s acting up, it’s too cold outside to write–I might as well do yoga. Get my ankle stuck on the back of my neck. Quick, call Rutgers.

An Invitation to Yoga

Yes: while China is dead serious about teaching its college students how to master the sciences–and how to cheat–our colleges are into… yoga. And Beyonce studies. Our professors turn up as guests on NPR babbling about how “white people own time.”

But if we don’t stop doing stupid stuff, it’s Red China who’s going to own time. Red China’s going to own us.

Liberals are happy with all that Chairman Mao stuff. But we are in a race with China, economically and technologically… and the loser will lose big.

Do we still have time for yoga pants and trigger warnings?


‘Those Who Can’t Do…?’ (2012)

Remember that commercial? For expert advice in dealing with your rotten kid, you’re supposed to go to this character whose own teen snarls “I hate you!” and slams the door in her face.

Those Who Can’t Do…?

Next up, the Davy Jones Boat Repair Co.

It used to be “Those who can’t do, teach.” But we have learned it’s also very much a matter of “Those who can’t do anything useful at all enter our professional political class.” Will we ever be wise enough to stop electing career politicians to run the country?


Just a Few Thoughts

Watching the Thinker | Science of Being

From the alacrity with which Democrat governors and mayors took to controlling and restricting people, you’d think they’d been waiting for it all their lives. But they have, haven’t they?

They’re whispering behind fans, these days, of mandatory universal vaccination. This engenders some questions. 1. Who in the world would any sane person trust to do this? I mean, really–! 2. What if the vaccine is rushed into production before certain problems can be discovered and solved? 3. Where in heaven’s name does anybody get the authority to do this?  4. Wouldn’t this be a positively peachy-keen way to lay the groundwork for even more controls on people? 5. Are we all mad, that we would even consider such a thing?

How many families are going to discover that they can actually do without college?

Throughout history, the punishment for sedition and treason was usually death. But our Deep State swamp creatures, who conspired and acted to overthrow our president, look like they’re not going to be punished at all–unless you call working as a highly-paid “consultant” to a fake nooze network a punishment.

Why are former government officials allowed to lobby for foreign governments?

You have to be a genuine 100-proof idiot to believe in the perfectibility of man–even with the aid of “artificial intelligence” created by persons whose actual intelligence is highly questionable.


‘Racer Begs Forgiveness for Saying Boys Don’t Wear Dresses’ (2017)

This he’s not afraid of?

Why does a man whose job calls for him literally to risk his life, or a severe injury, crumple into a wet soggy ball when he’s accused to being a Hater?

Racer Begs Forgiveness for Saying Boys Don’t Wear Dresses

Y’know, in the social media, it’s not hard for three or four people to appear to be three or four thousand, if they’re willing to work at it. Getting scared off by social media trolls indicates not only a want of spirit, but a want to judgment. That wasn’t a lynch mob out there, sunshine: it was two Far Left Crazy morons banging on a couple pots and pans.

Have we learned by now that the transgender movement must be utterly destroyed… because it is not sane?


A Glimpse of Total Moral Chaos

A Conversation with Dr. Rachel Levine - Erie Reader

If you think this guy really is a woman, you’re as daft as he is.

This story would be funny if it was in a Peter Sellers movie; but in that it involves questions of life and death, it isn’t funny at all. It’s just horrible.

You probably know by now that a nursing home is the worse place to be if there are COVID germs around. Nevertheless, Democrat government officials enjoy forcing nursing homes to take COVID patients, resulting in thousands of avoidable deaths.

So the “physician general of the state of Pennsylvania” ordered the state’s nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to take COVID patients–and then pulled his own mother out of her nursing home (https://dailycaller.com/2020/05/13/coronavirus-pennsylvania-rachel-levine-mother-nursing-home/).

Wow! Breath-taking hypocrisy! We are not told where he moved his mother to: only that he sought to preserve her safety while endangering so many others.

But wait, there’s more!

You’ll note that I’ve been saying “his” and “he” while all the other free & independent noozies have been using “hers” and “she” and referring to this man as if he were a woman. He is not. He is a “trans woman”–a man who says he is a woman. If a man says he is Napoleon Bonaparte, we are not expected to address him as “Emperor” or “General.” But if he says he’s a woman, we’d all better dance to his tune or else.

This is stupid, this is perverted, this is morally wrong and it has to stop. People who go along with it are either fools, cowards, or villains.

But this is what happens wherever Democrats are in charge. Stuff like this, engendered by the Democrats’ bizarre and anti-human ideology, cannot not happen with Democrats in charge.

We aren’t we ashamed of this?


‘Emory Students Freak Out Over “Trump 2016” Scrawled on Sidewalk’ (2016)

We had to suck up eight years of that socialist waste of space in the White House–and college students had nervous breakdowns in 2016 because some unknown person supported Donald Trump for president?

Emory Students Freak Out Over “Trump 2016” Scrawled on Sidewalk

If this is the product that comes out of our colleges, then those colleges need to be scrapped.

But the post from 2016 is also dear to me because it marks one of the last comments made by our sweet and wise friend, Dorothy Robbins, of California.

We remember you, Dorothy–and we miss you.
