26 July 22   “Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied”   Otto Von Bismarck   The invariable method used by socialists (Democrats) when confronting bad news is abject denial, then self-justification.   After continuously denying rapidly-escalating inflation, the JRB Administration now assures us that inflation is a good thing, because […]

Live From The Field

2 July 22   “Wrong does not cease to be wrong, just because the majority share in it.” Leo Tolstoy   There is scant doubt that the PRC manufactured and launched COVID as a “biological artillery barrage,” designed specifically to stress and weaken the existing economic and social fabric of the Western world.   That […]

Meeting lions!

17 June 22   “Naivety doesn’t excuse poor choices, Deary!   You and I both know life is unforgiving.   I can’t rescue every drowning pup that is stupid enough to peer too deeply down a well.”   Richelle E Goodrich   Modern Democrats arrogantly insist that “all wisdom began with them!”   Yet, multiple […]

Privileged Class!

15 June 22   The Privileged Class!   When leftist politicians say ARs are the ‘preferred weapon of criminals,” so therefore must be banned from private possession by “ordinary citizens” (the very politicians who propose such things predictably, and quietly, make an exception for themselves, of course), it is akin to saying:   “Fords, the […]
