Coming Soon: Head Transplants?

See the source image

How many times have you heard someone complain, “I’ve got no head for business”? Ah! But what if that person could have a great CEO’s head transplanted onto his body? Problem solved!

Somewhere in the wilds of Manchuria, a headline-happy Italian surgeon and his Chinese colleagues are working to develop new surgical procedures which could, they say, make human head transplants possible (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2019/03/27/italian-chinese-surgeons-cite-spinal-cord-repair-head-transplant-canavero-xiaoping/3287179002/).

In fairness, what they say they’re working on–note I did not say “actually working on”–is repairing broken or damaged spinal cords, something which medical science has not yet been able to achieve. To be able to repair spinal cord injuries would be truly wonderful, worthy of high praise.

Head transplants, not so much.

In The Master Mind of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote of a brilliant Martian scientist who transplanted the brains of rich, powerful people who were getting old into the bodies of young, healthy, good-looking people. This was routinely abused and John Carter had to make him stop.

Imagine! By the miracle of head transplant surgery, you could have Nancy Pelosi running the House of Representatives for the next 300 years. Just keep transplanting her head on young bodies. Supermodel bodies, if you like. Break out the bikini. [Oops–did I forget to hand out barf bags before I wrote that? Sorry!]

Oh, well–who knows what goes on in China? As Plato once said, when he’d heard stories of the kraken, “Perhaps the stories are not true.”


My Newswithviews Column, March 21 (‘They’re Coming for Your Kids’)

I will always hate it when adults put children in the front lines of their political battles. But of course liberals do that all the time.

Democrats want an end to our republic, and they mean to get it. Currently, Climbit Chainge is their ticket to ride. If something better comes along, they’ll drop Climate Change like a hot potato. But what could be better than the end of the world? Like, we’re all gonna die these horrible deaths unless we give government absolute power over every flamin’ nuance of our lives…


Lower the Voting Age to 16?

See the source image

Generally I try to avoid discussing any politics on Sunday. I try to follow the example of Judas the Maccabee who, although he was fighting for his nation’s life, still wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath except in self-defense.

I’ll make this brief. I mention it because it just might be one of those things they put over on us while we’re looking the other way and then, when it’s too late, we wonder how they did it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (Far Left-California) says she wants to see the voting age lowered to 16 (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6810889/Pelosi-wants-voting-age-lowered-16-capture-kids-high-school.html). She tried to insert the measure into an “anti-corruption bill”–the hypocrisy could actually suffocate you–but couldn’t quite manage it.

In one of those rare moments when a Democrat accidentally says something that is true, Pelosi explained why she wants to do this:

“It’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school.”

“Capture”? Did she say “capture”? Well, public education has already done that!

There is more that needs to be said about this republic-killing proposal, but I’ll save it for tomorrow.


Flash! Joe Collidge Survives the Censor!

See the source image

Those of you who are fans of Joe Collidge–I do hope I’m talking about more than four or five people here–will be delighted to know that this week Joe has survived the Facebook censors and can thus reach another half a dozen readers.

I still don’t know why Facebook chose to stifle him last week. After all, he’s on their side. Joe Collidge is, I dare say, the authentic voice of the Left, whose insights are indispensable to anyone who wishes to understand progressive thinking.

I hear Nancy Pelosi wants to lower the voting age to 16. Don’t you think 14 would be better? Or 12? Joe was going to weigh in on this issue today, but I guess it slipped his mind.


Coming Soon (Maybe): The Human Jellyfish?

See the source image

Hi! I’m your pet jellyfish, and you can call me Farfel!

You think it’s easy, writing headlines? Imagine having to write a headline for this.

“In 2016, a Japanese scientist reported that three months after the death of his pet jellyfish, a sea anemone-like polyp rose out of the degraded body, and then astonishly aged backwards, reverting to a younger state” (https://sg.news.yahoo.com/harvard-university-uncovers-dna-switch-180000109.html).

We’d love to check this story, but there are so many unanswered questions. What was this scientist’s name? Where did he report his findings? How does anybody wind up with a pet jellyfish? I mean, I’m sure they’re nice and all that, but I never heard of anyone keeping a jellyfish for a pet. What would you name it? Oh–and what was this guy doing, hanging on to the “degraded body” of a jellyfish for three months?

But wait, there’s more!

Scientists at Harvard have discovered a “DNA switch that controls genes for whole-body regeneration,” suggesting it might someday lead to people being able to re-grow lost arms or legs. Uh-uh. They have discovered this gene in worms. Worms are great at growing stuff back. It can also be found in human beings, but we’re not so great at growing stuff back. Not so much as a finger.

Even so, regeneration is the great humanist hope of immortality–that, or loading your mind into a robot. Once they work out the details, George Soros and Nancy Pelosi can stick around and screw up our country for another 700 years. No corrupt rich person will ever have to die!

I think Robert Silverberg wrote a science fiction novel about that, back in the 1950s, but I’m running too late to look it up.


My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 10 ( ‘A Seer Foretells America’s Future’)

It’s scary enough just listening to Democrats talk about what they want to do. But what if they actually did it?

“Boy, that’s kind of dark!” my wife said about this column.

But any Democrat can darken any room just by walking into it.


Whom Do Our Representatives Represent?

Image result for images of corrupt politics and money

Let me put on my cap and gown and be Mr. Political Science for a few minutes.

It used to be a truism that all politics is ultimately local. Only now it looks like all local politics is ultimately national.

Originally U.S. Senators were appointed by the legislatures of their respective states, to represent their states in Congress. But when the 17th Amendment changed that, making senators elected by direct popular vote, it opened the door for the whole nature of the Senate to change.

Senators no longer represent their states. They represent the nationwide special interests–like teachers’ unions, for instance–whose contributions finance their election. Besides securing pork barrel projects for their states from time to time, U.S. Senators have very little to do with the people who voted for them.

What we see today is national political organizations pouring cascades of money into states to elect their favorite candidates. This money comes from out of state: the nearly $30 million, for instance, that Nancy Pelosi–from California–funneled into the West Virginia Senate race. To Joe Manchin, the Democrat. Who will, if elected, continue to represent the national interests of the Democrat Party.

When they’re not pouring out-of-state money into an election, the special interests are providing, free of charge, consultants and “volunteers.” Often they provide those along with the boxcar-loads of money.

They finally made it illegal to accept campaign contributions from foreign donors. Duh–why did they even have to discuss that? Now something ought to be done about deciding state elections with out-of-state money.

Because, you see, it’s undermining our federal republic. Our elected representatives aren’t representing us anymore. They represent the big fat cats who pay their bills and get them into office. Political parties, unions, foundations–our representatives don’t have time for us, whom they are supposed to represent. Only around election time do they remember we exist.

We need to find some ways to jog their memories.


Dems’ Teen Wiz Kid Bashes Old Folks

Image result for images of david hogg obnoxious

Democrats are great at creating monsters that go on to ravage our society. Our only comfort is that sometimes the monsters turn on their masters and bite them in the ass.

David Hogg, the obnoxious 18-year-old anti-Second Amendment jihadi, raised to national prominence by opportunistic Dems seeking to take advantage of the Parkland school shooting, has turned on his creators. His quote for the day: “Older Democrats just won’t move the f*** off the plate” (https://www.newsweek.com/parkland-survivor-david-hogg-calls-politician-age-limits-older-democrats-just-1082296). Young Hogg finds it challenging to construct a sentence without an f-bomb.

The little prig went on to abuse Democrat grande dame Nancy Pelosi for being “old” (she’s 78, but if she was any brighter at 18 than she is now, that would be astounding). He has called for laws putting an age limit on serving politicians and political candidates.

He’s too young to remember what happened to Cindy Sheehan after she bashed the Democrat establishment: headfirst into oblivion.

How long will they let him bite the hand that raised him up?

Prediction: Octavio-Cortez will be the next to chomp that hand. And I don’t need a crystal ball to see that coming.


Jobs Up; Dems Down

Image result for images of  weeping Democrats

You couldn’t quite believe it when, er, “comedian” Bill Maher said he was “rooting for a recession… to bring down Trump”?

Well, the Labor Department reports that our national economy added 213,000 new jobs in June–and Democrats are, predictably, singing the blues over it. They hate it when anything goes well for America. A booming economy? Say it ain’t so!

Nancy Pelosi said “the economy is being hollowed out”–what?–“to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1%.” She’s probably in that 1%, and she doesn’t want it getting crowded.

The high job growth, said the jidrool who chairs the Democrat National Committee, “is hurting millions of hardworking families.” By giving them jobs.

They want their recession back.

Don’t worry, guys. When the Blue Wave sweeps you back into power in November, your having won America’s hearts and minds, you can get to work wiping out all that dreadful prosperity with oodles more crazy job-killing regulations and erasing our country’s borders to bring in hordes of cheap labor to compete with those 213,000 Americans who just got new jobs and will surely thank you for putting them back on unemployment.

What’s good for America is bad for Democrats.

And what’s good for them is very, very bad for you.


Right Before Our Eyes, a Lie is Born

Never mind Nancy Pelosi’s gift for annoying normal people and appearing to be one step short of going loopy. You don’t have to watch all 11 minutes of this video to see where she’s coming from.

What matters here is that the Democrat Party, right before our very eyes, even as we watch, is creating yet another vast, towering lie.

First Pelosi asserts that “Trumpcare”–any Republican legislation designed to replace the disaster that anyone but brain-dead liberals calls Obamacare–will visit “devastation on the lives of American families.” Don’t you love it when liberals pretend to care about families? Calling any effort to replace Obamacare “a catastrophe,” she predicts “heart-stopping premium increases”–which was, in truth, one of the major features of Obamacare–and foretells doom for “millions of families…” And so on.

It really is amazing to watch this unfold. Aided by the lock-step nooze media, Democrats are trying to create a gigantic lie and embed it in the mind of America. And the lie, a true whopper, is this:

Obamacare has been a fantastic success (untrue), everybody loves it (untrue), there was no down-side to it (those tens of thousands of jobs lost, and even more full-time jobs cut down to part-time–like, that never happened!), and without Obamacare, no one but the super-rich will ever get basic health care in America again.

This is a lie of truly Brobdingnagian proportions. It takes one’s breath away.

Can they possibly make it stick? Can they really, truly, get anyone but college putz-heads to  believe it?

God help us if they can. Because that will mean that we, as a nation, have lost all power of discernment and can no longer see through even the most preposterous lies.
