The Confederate War Flag is a piece of history.
I repeat –
A flag is a symbol. Period.
History is the data warehouse of human experience.
Data is essential for countless human endeavours, not the least of which is understanding what in the world happened.
Erasing legitimate data counterfeits any precipitation of data analysis wherein the body of data has been altered.
I never wanted to own a Confederate flag, but the desire is now overwhelming.
So, it seems, is the desire of countless people in the confederate states to own a piece of their own history before the political elite erase the evidence of what was.
George Orwell must be laughing his ass off. So too H.L. Mencken. who had a disdain for the ability of the political class which was only eclipsed by his disdain for the hoi polloi.
Joe and I just shake our heads and look for some humour to slough off this nasty taste of illogic run a muck….
The Dukes of Hazard? If you asked my friend Daryl about that show (he watched it religiously), it was entirely “General Lee”, a 1969 Doge Charger. Daryl was a gearhead and Chrysler fan – only the Chrysler engineering team knew more about the car than Daryl. The man who was responsible for keeping the many General Lees running has a book soon to be released. You can read a bit about Tom Sarmento, and his behind the scenes work with the cars and the cast here.
If you asked me in the day, I never watched the show, but if Daryl and I were up to something, for sure we had to watch the show before setting out. If you asked Joe, he was totally mesmerized by Daisy Duke…. (Catherine Bach) –
Joe is a Ford man. Go figure….
In the future world (PC express), this is what the show will be re-written to be:
Ladies, gentlemen, and pig farmers, I refer all y’all to the quote at the top of this rant.
The progressive mindset cannot tell the difference between real and imaginary – shit from shinola…..
Much turmoil and misery to follow that is unwarranted, unnecessary, uninvited, unneeded.
Joe says get rid of the big cities. Clean out the vermin.
Hard to argue………
Summer. (What Else Can You Say?)
Joe and I have been busy. Oh, so busy with normal everyday goings on in a record breaking summer of warm weather.
Consequently, all the bitching, ranting, venting, spewing, and general vituperate commenting is on hold.
Plenty of time for that when the super fine weather abandons the Okanagan.
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Thomas Sowell is one of my and Joe’s most admired and respected living economists, polemicists, and philosophers. Here is some of his prognosis about America’s future from his book “Dismantling America”, interviewed by Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution:
The combination of Dr. Sowell’s experience, wisdom, plus his knowledge makes this book one of the alarms warning of the demise of America. This short video is worth your time, as is the book.
In Thomas Sowell’s words, “It doesn’t matter how smart you are unless you stop and think”.

THE CULTURE (THERE IS ONLY ONE)
Pat Condell has a few words for those of us who grow ever weary of the kumbaya unicorn bleating of the progressive hoards, ever promoting a fantasy world that is beyond reality:
White (Male) Self-Loathing
Gavin McInnes has tongue firmly planted in cheek with this quick fix for the world’s “problems”:
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, SMART STUFF
Where is the analysis of DNA leading us? Who is bugling the charge? The citizens of Iceland have made a major contribution, thanks to the efforts of Kari Stefansson and his company, DeCode, the science AND technology of genetic research is making real progress. Read the history here.
GUNS, GUNNERS, GUNNERY
THE RELIGION OF PEACE (ALL OVER US)
For the record, the number of known deadly terror attacks by the “religion of peace” since 9/11 is 26,384 (and rising).
When it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, why not give it the benefit of the doubt?
Delivering his version of a fireless and brimstone-free sermon from the non pulpit, Daniel C. Dennett discusses what should replace religions. An oldie but goldie (Montreal, 2010):
