For nothing says “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community” like segregated dinners?

by Skip September 19, 2017

My almost two year old grandson LOVES blowing bubbles (he’s learned how).  But this snippet shows adults all wrapped up in their own smug self-justified bubble to where, once again, they couldn’t find their own self-induced irony even if you gave them a magnet (reformatted, emphasis mine): University will host dinners as part of ‘racial […]

The Obligatory Emmy post: I guess they’re not getting the picture yet

by Skip September 19, 2017

And is there any wonder why the headline exists? Total Irrelevance: Trump-Hating Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low …Instead of being the lowest-watched Emmys in its 69-year history, Sunday night’s telecast might be able to squeak into the second-lowest. As of now, though, it looks as though all that promised Trump-hating resulted in a record low, […]

It is Stompy Feet time when the LBGTQRSTUV* militants find out that we Normals don’t want to play the game

by Skip September 19, 2017

Standing question of Progressive Totalitarians everywhere: “Whaddya mean that you won’t do what I tell you to?!?!?!” (emphasis mine, reformatted): Columbia University students recently voted against a proposal that would make all restrooms on a dorm-floor “gender inclusive.” Yeah, right.  Inclusive – anything that rebels against traditional American norms. Trust me, even as they preach […]

by Skip September 19, 2017

I haven’t watched the speech yet but from reading the Rightosphere’s reaction to it, it seems to have been a doozy.  Then I came across this transcript and now my reaction is WOW – I can’t believe that finally someone said and hit all the right notes in front of all those tinpot and retrograde […]

“Which wolf wins?” – “The one that you feed.”

by Steve MacDonald September 19, 2017

  This comes From “The King’s Traitor,” the third book in the Kingfountain Series by Jeff Wheeler. Duke Horwath raised Owen, and at one point they talked about different sides of human motivation using wolves as a metaphor. “One (wolf) was full of evil, jealousy, anger, resentment. The other wolf was kind, benevolent, generous, and dutiful. Owen […]

Londonderry Flag Flap Revisited

by Steve MacDonald September 19, 2017

The lead story in today’s Union Leader is about the Londonderry Flag Flap. The reporting is measured and comforting with a Gee Wally, Leave it to Beaver feel. And that’s fine. It covers the bases, gives the nice folks at Londonderry High and company an opportunity to say shucks, that wasn’t what we meant, but […]

No nonsense female judge levels 3rd wave feminism

by Skip September 19, 2017

On the rare occasion that I channel surf and Judge Judy pops up, I stop.  No nonsense, takes no BS from those in front of her – I just love her verbal putdowns of those trying to use pomposity and double-speaking to get around her judgements.  That she will not stand and it is clear […]

Hurricane Jose is forecast to slowly weaken to a tropical storm as it tracks about 100 miles south of Nantucket on Wednesday. The main impact of Jose will be felt on Cape Cod and the Islands and will be similar to that of a strong nor`easter, with coastal flooding, beach erosion, locally heavy rainfall, and […]
