Agree And Amplify

Self determined, a la carte  identity has become all the rage lately. Can men who claim to be women use women’s bathrooms? Are they in fact women? Does reality matter at all? The answer seems to be no. So, should I become an employer again, I would hire highly qualified straight, white men and have […]

Defining Women

I don’t do twitter, but somebody linked to some funny tweets from PaxDickinson and this one caught my eye: ‘In 2016 we’re focused on protecting “women”, which is currently defined as a group that excludes Sarah Palin but includes Bruce Jenner’

Extending Niemoller

Via Peter Blood’s Comment First they came for the communists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the socialists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then […]

Theory And Practice

A Joke

Found here A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both […]

There Goes The Neighborhood

Apparently, the patriot/militia/III%/Kerodin/etc are now looking at an “Appalachian Redoubt”. They’re planning, scheming, organising and getting ready to create a Republic of Appalachia, they even have a facebook page. I have no respect for these jokers, I just hope they don’t drive property prices up.

Apocalyptic Inconvenience

Ostrander thinks he has a winter story, but I have a tale that will chill his Hoosier heart. Friday  7 march 2014 0500 I awoke with a petulant groan when the fan cut off. Little did I know that this would be the first inconvenience of the most boring  48 hours of my life. I […]

Disclaimer Added To Noah Trailers

I’m shocked! I can’t believe that Noah, the new Russell Crowe movie, is anything other than a literal retelling of the Bibical narrative! Who would have thought hollywood would do that! Seriously, though, who would have thought Hollywood would turn a thousand word story into an epic adventure drama that strictly adhered to the source […]

Africa, Whatcha Gonna Do? Part 2

Ah, Africa, if you didn’t exist, racist comedians would have to invent you. Maybe they did, I don’t know. I once described Africa as cartoonishly violent, I thought it was hyperbole, but then Aimless Gromar mentioned this site. C’mon Africa, its getting hard to take you seriously anymore.      

Treating Everybody Like idiots

So, I went to Arby’s drive-in window today, five roast beef sandwhiches, a curly fry with “cheese” sauce and a cherry turnover. I got my order and checked it quickly. I saw the turnover, I made sure the “cheese” sauce was there, it was right on top. There was a car behind me, so I […]

Apotheosis of Consumerism

My wife is watching some couponing show. The show follows obsessive couponers (mostly fat women) through the grocery store as they load their carts with junk food and laundry detergent and then use coupons to pay next to nothing. To be clear, my wife is watching a show about shopping.

So Its Not Just Me

Via Cracked. the Hathor Legacy On script writing and male leads: “The audience doesn’t want to listen to a bunch of women talking about whatever it is women talk about.” According to Hollywood, if two women came on screen and started talking, the target male audience’s brain would glaze over and assume the women were […]

Jewish Mafia

Recently, a Russian gay activist was barred from participating in some gay conference and had a hissy fit in which he blamed the “Jewish Mafia”. Vox Day made a funny observation about it. “Let me see if I have this straight. It is now observably safer for an activist to criticize Vladimir Putin and the […]

I’m Not The First Idiot

So, I go into the bathroom to brush my teeth. I absent mindedly grab my toothbrush and put some toothepaste on it from the small tube  on the counter. I thought it was odd that we were using a small tube instead of the regular size, but my wife had just cleaned the bathroom, maybe […]

On The Ammo Shortage

Ammo is getting scarce!   This morning I lucked out and was able to buy two boxes of ammo. I placed the boxes on the front seat and headed back home, but stopped at a gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a short skirt was filling up her car at the next pump. […]
