    Things are clearly getting out of hand in Ottawa:Trucks, trucks, everywhere!The peaceful protests against government overreach is growing and spreading to other Canadian cities as well, that can’t be good. Eventually freedom loving Canadians will realize that there’s more of them than there are of their autocrat oppressors - that’s when things get really interesting. In order to avoid that eventuality the mayor of Ottawa declared a state of emergency over the trucker protest yesterday,hoping to force their dispersal. Strange, the mayor of Ottawa had no problem when BLM came to protest. But people who come with bouncy houses to...

    Enlightenment: the moment the wave realizes it is the oceanEnlightenment: a blessing…and a curse“The fair breeze blew, The white foam flew, And the forrow followed free. We were the first to ever burst into the silent sea.” Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner**If you are one who prays you might pray for our Francine, who finds herself in a very dark place in need of strength and faith.Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    Doug Ross runs a Top 20 Tweets from BadBlue Tonight feature: last night this came in at #16. Not something you often see. Route of the Tour de France temporarily blocked by llamas in fog. Photo from TdF Race Radio. pic.twitter.com/RSC5abj6I0 — John O'Connell (@jdpoc) July 15, 2021It turns out the photo is actually from the Tour de France a few years ago but since it got retweeted it qualifies and I think it deserves a much higher ranking than 16, based solely on the responses it engendered. While many observed that “Llamas in the Fog” would make an exceptionally...

    There could be a verdict in the Rittenhouse trial as early as today. Closing arguments (and antics, in the case of the prosecutor, see picture below) were made yesterday.Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger argued that Rittenhouse provoked the attack, thereby forfeiting his right to self-defense. Rittenhouse instigated the first shooting by pointing his weapon at people, and caused the subsequent encounters by creating an “active shooter” situation in which protesters felt an urgency to disarm him.While making that claim Binger demonstrated by picking up Kyle’s rifle and aiming it at the spectator section of the courtroom, with his finger on...

At first they are replaced by autumn’s radiant display of hues. This season of ever shortening days and longer nights requires a sorting down, a retention of bare essentials.

    We sure went from “love, is love, regardless of your gender” to “gender doesn’t exist” pretty quickly. For those who think that the “slippery slope” argument is always fallacious, this could serve as a useful example of when it is not.It seems like only yesterday that we were still living in First-Term-Obama’s colonial-imperialist-patriarchal America. Then suddenly, but expectedly, The Won “evolved” completely and came out in support of same-sex marriage, chastising anyone who hadn’t manage to “circle back” quite as quickly as he had.Now look at us: just 8 years later and we have fully transformed!“Designating sex on birth certificates...

    I’ve got a busy morning so I leave you with a few reading assignments. It struck me how many people are of-a-sudden beginning to view what’s happening in a broader perspective than petty politics. From Evelyn Markus’ piece that draws painfully accurate comparisons of 21st century America to the totalitarianism of Nazi Germany, to Simon Black’s article that traces the trajectory of a failed culture all the way back to the Romans, to Stacy McCain, who examines societal breakdown through one man’s lens – all focus on a civilization in retrograde.America Playing With Fire- Evelyn Markus notes the many similarities...

    It was relatively warm yesterday so I took the opportunity to prune the Quickfire and Little Limelight hydrangeas scattered around the front of the house. They were all still wearing their tan winter mopheads from last season that needed to be snipped in anticipation of a new season’s growth.Against the backdrop of muffled kids’ voices playing basketball down the street the quietude allowed me to reflect on how perfect these hydrangea varieties are. They bloom early, provide numerous large flowers well into the fall. Starting out pure white they first turn a light blush growing into a deeper pink until...

    And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    Democ­ra­cy is like that too, with corporate media providing the wolf’s fodderAn independent press that facilitates free and fair elections and shines a spotlight on corruption has long been considered the 4th estate, an essential leg of democracy. But America’s free-to-lie-and-suppress-the-truth-media makes a mockery of the term “independent press.” When the media has clearly and demonstrably abandoned truth in pursuit of an agenda they have advanced well beyond being Fake News and are deeply embedded in the 5th Column known as the Deep State. They serve to undermine our election as well as our duly elected President and his administration....

Black is technically not a color but the absorption of all colors and the reflection of none I anticipate that, as usual, they will not disappoint. Don’t worry troops, our President will find a way to beat this and turn it to his advantage. And let’s face it, better to happen now than the week before the election....

    Following the death of George Floyd we’ve had months of rioting, looting, thuggery and terrorism. In over a dozen cities around the country police chiefs have been fired, retired or resigned. Look at all these racist police chiefs; shocking! Abolish the racist pigs! And so the demands to defund police continue, only one problem: real “folks” are having none of it – not even Al Sharpton (“Latte Liberals” want to defund NYPD, “but people living on the ground need proper policing”). The only people going along with the shuck and jive of the BLM these days are the usual suspects:...

But it’s the latest non-controversy #FakeNews that will not die so here goes.President Trump at a ceremony honoring the Native American veterans and the WWII Code Talkers in particular: “You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her ‘Pocahontas,’” he said with a chuckle. Here’s Senator Warren’s response, in that seething-with-rage-between-clenched-teeth way that only angry progressive...

Need an “Inaugural Survival Guide?” Then I’ve got just the place for you; come to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City! I promise you’ll feel at home and will be entertained with all the politically correct and anti-American movies you can stomach. The inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump is January 20, 2017 — which is also the first full day of the Sundance Film Festival. That’s already inspired multiple festival attendees to discuss how they might arrange marches or protests, and now the festival has gone...

    I’m hitting the road today, so this officially begins the Christmas celebration of 2016. I’m kicking it off with Joni’s accidental Christmas song that was a big hit last year: It was originally released in 1971 on the appropriately named album, Blue, and never really intended as a Christmas song. It's become a staple because nearly everyone of a certain age is apt to "feel a little blue around the holidays," as my Mother used to put it in her understated way. Even if you otherwise love Christmas and all its attendant traditions the march of time and circumstance inevitably...
