I know it seems like she has been around for a hundred years. But not quite.
Whose that naked girl?
Tired of all the doom and gloom?
Need a little something to make you smile?
I have it right here.
The 538 site ran a request on Twat for abortion stories. As always, the old Greek proverb about getting what you wished applied. They got stories, all right, but not the kind they wanted.
The link here is off the Libertarian American Thinker. It offers a statistic that 1 in 4 women will have an abortion before they're 45.
Maybe in the days before ultrasound. Maybe when you weren't a wxmyn unless you had one..
But not these days. Abortion mills are shutting down all over the country. Some because new state laws are reining them in. More because it just isn't as hip to kill what we have been able to see is a human being, not just a "clump of cells", as the helferinnen told us.
Anywho, real people have their say.
I found myself unexpectedly pregnant at the age of 22 in my last semester of college with my daughter. Her father and I decided to marry, and she is still the most unexpected blessing in our lives. I cannot imagine a world without her joyful presence.
My son was born extremely prematurely to a single mother who lived in the projects. Rather than abort him, she gave him life and allowed us to adopt him. He’s the handsomest and sweetest young man you could ever meet. I thank God for him every day.
The replies run off the page.
Something else to make you smile.
We've all seen how huffy the Lefties get when they come across people who object to the stolen election and the ersatz pResident. They doxxed and threatened the guy who told the lying dogfaced pony soldier, "Let's Go, Brandon". After tring to mollify the Left (no chance of that), Jared Schmeck decided to go full tilt and declared, yes, he voted for Trump, Trump's the real President, and the election was stolen.
What's that they say about a Conservative is a Liberal who's just been mugged?
Uncle Saul's Rules are predicated on us being nice guys, good little ladies and gentlemen. With people like Mr Schmeck, them days is gone forever.
As a corollary, off the Eminent Mr Surber.
The homosexuals aren't the only LGB crowd anymore. Now we are LGB - Let's Go, Brandon. Right along with FJB. We're also the new LGBTQ crowd.
Let's Get Biden To Quit. According to the Lefties, that indicates an insurrection.
I agree. The peasants are certainly revolting.
Everybody's favorite Vulcan was forever describing things as fascinating. He rarely used the word interesting.
This little observation I find interesting, or at least its implications.
Gateway presents this news item telling how Chinese cities are repossessing properties belonging to the bankrupt Evergrande real estate colossus. This would appear to be a flagrant violation of the way we view how things are done in Red China. One would expect permission to be required from Shih and the boys in the Forbidden City.
This vid gives some insight into the Red economy (bear with the presenter's rather strong Indian accent). The Strong 100, as they are known, are the big real estate firms and the ones behind much of Red China's economy. They've built Potemkin cities all over the world as well as apartments and infrastructure, much of it tofu dreg, throughout old Cathay. The Evergrande mess is emblematic of a much more systemic economic problem.
In the immortal words of Linda Richman, discuss : Does the sort of fiscal arrogation in seizing properties in recompense for unpaid revenue signal the beginning of a larger demand for autonomy? We've already seen how a lot of Chinese yoots are dropping out of the 996 (9 to 9, 6 days a week) rat race because they see nothing in it for them. Is this a harbinger of nascent rebellion like Yuri Andropov dropped on us in the late 60s?
Riddle me that one, batfans.
That's what the Euros are calling it.
We in the States are growing bored with the Deep State Dwarf's Chicken Little routine.
But this is really about the Catholic Church. The real one, not the one Frank the Commie is trying to establish.
So, as a little Christmas present to Troop, I bring the words of Archbishop Carlo Vigano
a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance. This coup was made possible by an emergency pandemic that is based on the premise of a virus that has a mortality rate almost analogous to that of any other seasonal flu virus, on the delegitimization and prohibition of effective treatments, and on the distribution of an experimental gene serum which is obviously ineffective, and which also clearly carries with it the danger of serious and even lethal side effects.
The answer is now clear: throughout the world, in the name of a perverted concept of freedom, we have progressively erased God from society and laws.We have denied that there is an eternal and transcendent principle, valid for all men of all times, to which the laws of States must conform. We have replaced this absolute principle with the arbitrariness of individuals, with the principle that everyone is his own legislator. In the name of this insane freedom – which is license and libertinage – we have allowed the Law of God and the law of nature to be violated, legitimizing the killing of children in the womb, even upto the very moment of birth; the killing of the sick and the elderly in hospital wards; the destruction of the natural family and of Marriage; we have recognized rights to vice and sin, putting the deviations of individuals before the good of society. In short, we have subverted the entire moral order that constitutes the indispensable basis of the laws and social life of a people.Already in the fourth century B.C., Plato wrote these things in his last work the Laws and identified the cause of the Athenian political crisis precisely in the breaking of the divine order – the cosmos – between these eternal principles and human laws
We have been here before.
The Church has been here before.
However, as always, good men stand for truth and right, so be of good cheer.
The polls are telling us Brandon is in the same territory as Chlamydia.
Lloyd Bridges and Richard Basehart were never so far underwater. So who do they run in '24?
And then there's the news out of Rome, where we are told Frank won't make it past '22.
Cue the orchestra with the impending music.
I don't expect any of you to like or even finish listening to that video. It radiates raw anger which is what the punk movement was all about back in the day. I had a roommate then who actually threw fits and started throwing things whenever I'd play Husker Du. Seeing you guys turn on each other is heartbreaking and sort of predictable. I'd rather talk about several women who seem to care about me--none romantically--well maybe one--but she's back in California.
Here are the lyrics for "Divide And Conquer." I boldfaced the parts I thought were prescient for 1984 which is when the album came out.
Oh and Spinelli, they were a Minneapolis band.
Lyrics after the jump.
