  • There’s no one less Irish than an expat Republican

    We like to claim Ernesto “Che” Guevara as one of our own. Guevara was an Argentina-born guerrilla fighter who helped Fidel Castro overthrow the American-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959. He had an Irish ancestor, Patrick Lynch, who was born in Galway in 1715. So thrilled are we by this connection that, in 2012, a Che statue was proposed by Galway city council, and a stamp was issued here in his honour five years later. The uncomfortable reality that Guevara killed lots of people does not count against him in Ireland. Revolutionary violence has always had a certain romantic...

    As we drove through Warrenton, Virginia (population 9,913), it struck me and my husband, Scott, at the same time. In a quarter mile stretch of road, there was every major chain that has come to define the American fast-food landscape. We were hungry. We didn’t want to get COVID-19. I had forgotten the frozen pizzas in our rush to get out the door. And neither of us had tried the famous Popeyes’ Chicken Sandwich that had sold out across the country in 2019. We set our minds to our new mission. First, we devised rules: At every venue, we would...

    The Republican weenies in the US Senate got bit on the A$ss. They thought the Democrats would not use fraud in Georgia so they would stay in power. The Dems deal was probably like this - don't make waves and you get to stay in power and the chumps believed it.Now the RINOs and weenies are out of power and are hurting. Call the Waaambulance!

    Scrambled eggs might be a simple dish but it can be surprisingly hard to get right. Everyone wants a fluffy texture and to avoid the eggs going too rubbery. And one chef says the key is his secret ingredient – mayonnaise. Food scientist Alton Brown says the condiment gives the dish a creamier and more delicious texture.

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time since 1983, when Anheuser-Busch used all of its ad time to introduce a beer called Bud Light, the beer giant isn’t advertising its iconic Budweiser brand during the Super Bowl. Instead, it’s donating the money it would have spent on the ad to coronavirus vaccination awareness efforts. Anheuser-Busch still has four minutes of advertising during the game for its other brands including Bud Light, Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade, Michelob Ultra and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer. Those are some of its hottest sellers, particularly among younger viewers. But the decision to not do...
  • Hindsight: Jacques Parizeau, the Elmer Fudd of Quebec

    01/25/2021 8:24:11 AM PST · by Scooter100 · 3 replies
    In 1995, Quebec's Premiere, Jacques Parizeau, called it correctly after losing the Quebec [separatist] referendum to secede from Canada. In an interview the following day, according to Jackie-Poo, he lost because of "big money and the ethnic vote".In the strangest of twists, it was Quebec's leftist French parliamentarians who, for years, had pushed for Multiculturalism's wide-open immigration, a la Pierre Trudeau, that Euro-centric, arch-globalist and China-lover! How delightfully ironic! The massive ethnic influx that diluted the Quebec separatist vote was, in fact, all their own fault! Parizeau and the "Pur Laine" shot themselves in the face, like Elmer Fudd in...

    Both Hank Arron and Larry King took the vaccines right before they passed. I am not saying it was the vaccine that killed them. Nevertheless, it should be noted.Here is a compile of Social Media accounts (see link below) that took the vaccine. This is from the peoeple that the MSM will never show you. Thought you may want to take a look at this long list. For the record, I have had vaccines in the past, and I am not an anti-vaccine. Although this does not automatically mean every vaccine is safe. This was rushed out in 9 months...

    Eleven miners have been rescued in China after a harrowing two weeks trapped some 2,000 feet below ground. The rescue marked a moment of celebration and relief in what has been an arduous and complex effort to bring the men to safety. One miner has already died and another 10 remain missing. The first miner was rescued shortly after 11 a.m. local time on Sunday. Television footage showed rescuers clapping and cheering as the miner was brought to the surface wearing a blindfold to protect his eyes from the light. He was brought to the hospital for treatment, with his...

    Happy Australia Day to all our readers Down Under. The national holiday is, in fact, on Tuesday, but for all I know it's already Tuesday there, or possibly Wednesday, in which case Happy Australia Day for yesterday - or, as the depraved nutters at the nation's state broadcaster say, "Happy Invasion Day". Not being able to visit the Lucky Country is one of the things I've most missed in this last year of lockdown, but I hope to see it once more before I die, if the Vegemite Curtain is ever lifted. As you know, we always like to have...

    A recent survey has determined that over half of Americans are ready to switch to SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service. This was despite only 5% of internet subscribers in the United States being connected via satellite today. The study was conducted by Reviews.org, which asked respondents whether they would consider getting on board with Starlink once the satellite internet service is fully set up. As it turns out, over half of those surveyed stated that they’d be signing up for the Starlink Beta program, despite the $499 cost of the satellite dish and the service’s current $99 per month fee....

    Myrick, 37, had worked with Roxy for four years, inspecting commercial and residential properties, before he was laid off from the company in March. Although the dog had been provided by M&M, which covered her food and veterinary bills, she’s lived with Myrick and his wife, ­Joana, since he fetched Roxy from a dog-training facility in Florida. (M&M paid for her training.) But things turned ruff when, not long after the pandemic started, he chose to be laid off rather than pivot and work for M&M as a COVID cleaner without Roxy. He returned his company vehicle, credit cards and...

    The mess that President Joe Biden inherited from former President Donald Trump is depicted on the new cover of Time. The front page of the magazine’s Feb. 1 / Feb. 8 double issue shows Biden pensively looking out of a trashed Oval Office’s window, which appears to be surrounded by flames. Graffiti is scrawled on a curtain and the Resolute Desk, which is buried under documents and fast food cartons. A telephone lies on the floor, near one of Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” caps and a bullhorn.
