Joe’s Comment – Middle grandson starts kindergarten this coming week. My prayers are for the lovely innocent kindergarten teachers who think they know what is coming……
Let the civilization begin!
Quote o’ the Week
“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.” – John Adams

Nigel the Giant
Nigel Farage spoke at a Trump rally in Jackson, Mississippi last week.
He is a master politician who has a real and direct rapport with We the People, no matter which country he is addressing:
Speak Engrish Damit
Joe and I think the language you speak has an incredible influence on your weltanschauung – indeed, it forms the culture around you. We think it no coincidence that the industrial revolution and the rise of technology are hand in hand with the English language. The following video confirms that language is ever shifting and changing:
Black Lives Redux
Joe and I are hugely skeptical about the authenticity of BLM.
OK, gloves off. It is an extreme left wing apparatus of racism, violence, dis and mis information, and a political weapon to keep people, especially “black” people (whatever the hell that means / implies) on the “Democrat political plantation”. How else could you view the burning of neighborhoods, threats and violence against the police, destruction of property, and antagonism against anyone not “black”? So self destructive…..
Bill Whittle lays out the facts as reported by the government agencies of record. You be the judge:
The video is an analysis of government provided data. Not much argument or wiggle room for misinterpretation. Why is it that the data is not known by the average citizen? Not broadcast by the main stream media? Not published in journals, papers, Internet outlets, but rather in blogs and podcasts by concerned citizens. Where is the “official” media in this fight? What happened to the 4th Estate? Why are the real journalists in the 5th Estate?
Here is a telling quote from the comments found under the above YouTube video –
“Of Coarse Black lives matter! WHAT IF ALL THE BLACK PEOPLE SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION: The prison population would go down by 37%, There would be 53% less gang members, Average IQ would go up 7.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan, Average SAT scores would go up almost 100 points, Average ACT scores would go up 5.5 points. AIDS & HIV would go down by 65%, Clamydia cases would go down 54%, Gonorrhea would go down 69%, Syphilis would go down 58%. The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year, Amount of people in poverty would drop 34%, Homelessness would go down 57%, Welfare recipients would go down by 42%, DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!! Many prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys, and prison guards would have to find another line of work! Yes, Black lives DO matter!”
Spelling and grammar aside, We the People are getting riled up. The general tone of the comments is one of exasperation, frustration, and growing anger.
The asshole in the White House has a lot to answer for – the worst domestic policy president since independence.
He is winning the race with Jimmah Carter for the worst foreign policy president evah! Joe says he beats Carter by a nuclear mile…..
POLITICS, POLITICIANS, WACKJOBBERY, HUMOROUS, STUPID
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AMAZING STUFF
Who would imagine that crystal clear mountain stream that tastes so refreshing is inhabited by inventors?
One specific inventor is the caddis fly, which has invented a tape-like material that works under water. Humans don’t have that tape yet…. From a most awesome website:
THE RELIGION OF PEACE (ALL OVER US)
Dennis Prager wrote a book titled “Happiness Is a Serious Business”.
The gist of his argument is happiness is a moral obligation.
His logic is irrefutable.
This lecture should be mandatory viewing for everyone over the age of 12 years.
When you reflect on yourself, and the people in your life, his points are reinforced over and over:
WEATHER (OR NOT)
This week in Vernon has been the knell of the end of summer.
Rain, wind, cloud, cool nights.
The calendar says three more weeks of summer.
The feeling is more like this –
