Quote ‘O the Week
“I don’t want the past back. I just think we chose the wrong future” – Peter Hitchens
This rant has a large amount of content on “the culture” (as Andrew Klavan is wont to say). Below the fold you will find many comments from many sources. As I grow older the noises I hear from the citizenry around me are becoming foreign and somewhat unsettling. I’m not talking about “invasions from foreign lands”, minorities, special interest groups, whatever. I’m talking about how my set of values, morals, ethics, honour, duty, compassion, empathy, charity no longer seem mainstream. Joe is similar minded. We have become strangers in our own land…..
In the words of Mike Rowe, the demographic has changed. Is it a thinly veiled plot by the “Leftists”? Is it the natural precipitate of a culture that wants for little and has lost it’s sense of pride? Is it animal, mineral, vegetable?
Today, Sunday, is Father’s Day, and the summer solstice. Life doesn’t get any better!
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Looking at the candidates for the big job in next year’s election is bewildering. On the Democrat ticket, Joe and I are amazed that Hilarious Clitman is not behind bars for life, let alone the favoured anointed one. On the Republican ticket, after completely f**ing up the last two presidential elections, there is a cornucopia of candidates of varied ethnicity and background, some new some re-runs, but only one woman. What a woman she is! Here is Carly Fiorina interviewed by Katie Couric on Yahoo somethingorother:
After listening to Carly exquisitely present her points, rebuke Wanda Krupnick III (Katie Couric), and demonstrate her poise, charm, humility, knowledge, and versatility, the following is absolutely true –
POLITICS, POLITICIANS, WACKJOBBERY, HUMOROUS, STUPID
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, SMART STUFF
THE CULTURE (THERE IS ONLY ONE)
Bill Whittle talks to the gap obvious in many media pogroms, that being the gap between the facts and what the left wants to believe:
How to Speak Leftese
Andrew Klavan initiates a discussion on what the multitudes of the left (progressives, liberals, moonbats) actually mean when they speak. A two part seminar:
These ladies have an interesting point. Per the UN / International guidelines of the definition of genocide, the “white race” is being eliminated. Watch:
Andrew Klavan chimes in with a brief thank you to Christian white men of yore:
Andrew Klavan explains the fundamental battle being waged by gamers in the name of freedom. Or whatever:
Bill Whittle reviews the Disney “epic” Tomorrowland. Walt Disney would agree! The progressive brain trust (we use the term “brain” for want of a better descriptor) doesn’t see anything wrong with fascism:
Andrew Klavan asks the current prurient question, “What Gender Are You?”. What cultural times we live in my dear friends:
PHILOSOPHY, PHILOSOPHERS, SMART THINKING
GUNS, GUNNERS, GUNNERY
THE RELIGION OF PEACE (ON ALL OF US)
Louder with Crowder nails it:
A perfect day and time for Terry Jones to present the third instalment of Barbarians – S1Ep3 – The Brainy Barbarians:
WEATHER (OR NOT)
Another damn near perfect week in Vernon. Summer is officially here today, but we have had a number of spectacular sunny warm windless days of late. Some rain and wind to be sure, but only enough to catch your attention then gone again. Here’s to 2015 and “Global Warming”!
Please Sir, I want some more….
