Things We Can Live Without

It must be pleasant to be a liberal. Every political principle fits on a bumper sticker. All problems can be chalked up to (1) racism, (2) capitalism, (3) global warming, or (4) Donald Trump. Liberals soak in a fragrant bubble bath of their own worldview. They need never hear a conservative message, but they won't shut up themselves. Like that obnoxious guy at the town meeting, they grabbed the microphone and won't put it down. The left can't resist the impulse to abuse those on the right at every opportunity. They don't even imagine us in the room; if we happen to be,


We can live without a lot of these obnoxious political pukes who use their various paid for platforms to lecture us, pushing leftist, anti-white, antiAmerican ideas.
Since they are choices, I know I choose not to give them any of my money or time.

I would like to think that living without leftists and democrats (but I repeat myself ) would be the next best thing to nirvana one could get on this earth. I can only hope that the return of Jesus will be soon and they all face their judgement.

I dropped the government in 1966. I dropped cable tv in 1990. Movies and music soon after. Baseball and basketball same time frame. Quit flying in 2000. Dropped the WSJ in 2009. Dropped the NFL in 2017. I dropped Fox when they dropped Lou Dobbs. I dropped AM radio when Rush died. The list of businesses I have dropped is a long one. The businesses I must do business with I do not like. I have no idea why businesses bother to advertise for customers they despise. I would like to secede from the U.S., from Austin, Tx, and Harris County, Tx. I still enjoy good food, but I will not go to a restaurant for it. I never joined FB, don't use Twitter, and despise Google and Amazon. I don't have a smart phone. Just another device to spy on me.

There's an advantage to being 75 years old. You have learned that there is a whole LOT you can live without. And you can truly enjoy the things you cannot live without.

Since discovering Lucianne years ago, I haven't watched an evening newscast for more than 5 minutes. With the range of news posted here and the often astute observations and added information from posters, I find I am much better informed about the facts of any headlines. I don't miss the obvious bias, the cutesy edits, the rumors and the stories ignored on purpose.

The headline reminded me of a funny incident that occurred a week ago. My son and I were having dinner at the Tampa Hard Rock Cafe when the Tears for Fears song "Shout" came on. I started singing along, but changed the lyrics to: Shout, shout Let it all out Biden's bulls--- I can do without Come on, man I'm talking to you Come on, man Sometimes it's just too easy!

FTA: "Liberals soak in a fragrant bubble bath of their own worldview. They need never hear a conservative message, but they won't shut up themselves." In the middle of Holy Week I sent out an email featuring a letter from Archbishop Vigano summarizing the issues surrounding Covid and the Great Reset. I have an old college friend that went more Left as I went Right. I always delete him from political and religious emails, which means I don't send him much. I thought that was getting pretty silly and sent it to him reasoning he could always delete it. How wrong I was! It started a chain of eleven response/counter response emails that became "progressively" nasty. Twice I tried for a graceful exit with "agree to disagree", but each time he came back harder. The emails were full of disdain, dismissive and disrespectful. Then he complained that I had "blown off his birthday and not for the first time" which I then followed up with a political hit. I had forgotten his birthday was two weeks before and didn't remember until his accusation. I explained the situation, apologized and promised to never again send him offending information. His response was the worst of the bunch. I followed that with another apology and its been blessed silence for two days. I see it as a gift from the Holy Spirit. Our birthday phone calls had become shorter and more restrained in the Trump years. I think I forgot his birthday because I really didn't want to talk to him, and I decided to send him that email because I subconsciously wanted a show down. Recognizing each other's birthday had grown into an empty ritual, glossed over with a cool politeness, that I felt no need to continue if he could not "agree to disagree". I got my answer, but even I was not prepared for the veracity and the vitriol. He can crow to his "progressive" friends how he bested a conservative, practicing Catholic, stalwart Trump supporter, climate denier and Covid skeptic. I am finally free of an obligation that ceased to have meaning. Now I know why friend turned against friend in the first Civil War. Cancel Culture works both ways. MAGA - Never give up. Never give in.

I'd just add that in addition to all that he noted, shopping must be easier when you're a leftist. Gave up Fairlife milk this past weekend when I learned it was owned by Coke. My boycott list, products and stores, has become ridiculously long but I'll stick to it the best I can.

The other night, I left the TV on Turner Classic Movies and went to walk the dogs. I came back to find my usually cellphone-centric 14-year-old niece Peilin watching The Heiress, a classic 1949 anti-romantic drama with the elegant language of the Henry James source novel, Washington Square. We watched the rest of the film together, Peilin spellbound by its fundamental mystery. Does handsome suitor Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift) truly love plain spinster Catherine Sloper (Best Actress Oscar winner Olivia de Havilland), or is he only after her fortune? I observed Peilin’s engrossment with renewed hope for the next generation of American women. It lasted till I saw Kung Fu.

The BLM website tells us that in 2013 “three radical Black organizers — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi — created a Black-centered political will and movement building project called #BlackLivesMatter.” On the website, to this day, the organizers proudly share the inspiration for the group’s creation: “It was in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman.” The critical word here is “murderer.” An all-female jury believed rightly that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense and acquitted him of all charges, including murder. Their judgment simply did not matter to the three women who founded BLM. In the ongoing Minneapolis trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, BLM

I think that few would deny that, in 2020, Anthony Fauci, the highest-paid federal bureaucrat in America, also managed to leverage himself into the position of the most consequential person in America. He had only to express a whim about the behavioral changes necessary to defend America against the dreaded Wuhan virus, and America bowed down. In 2021, even though he's proven to be consistently wrong, the all too powerful mainstream media still promote him as an oracle. It's doubtful that even Fauci's latest muddled statements about Texas will change that point of view.

Now that King Kong is back in action in a new blockbuster, the super-hyped Godzilla vs Kong, with a mammoth budget matching the scale of the two protagonists (some $160 to $200 million), patriots should note who the real hero of the Kong saga is. It’s not the fictional monster pitted against the rapacious, prehistoric reptile. No, it’s the man who created Kong: aviator, explorer, and film producer Merian C. Cooper. Cooper (1893-1973) was a bomber pilot in the First World War. He invented a unique artillery-spotting technique—flying close to ground level to draw enemy fire. Shot down in flames behind enemy lines, he greeted the armistice in a prison hospital.

Now that the Department of Justice and FBI are using the 1/6/21 Capitol incursion to demonize all who attended the massive rally that day, imputing “insurrection,” “white supremacy,” and “extremism” to them, massive political repression may be coming. Consider this from Politico: The Department of Homeland Security is considering monitoring the travel of domestic extremists and expanding its use of the No Fly List, law enforcement sources told POLITICO. The discussions are part of the Biden administration’s strategy of treating domestic terror as a national security threat, and not just a law enforcement problem.

Let me be honest from the start of this. I’m not religious. I’m an agnostic. That is, I cannot say with any degree of certainty whether God exists or not. That would be any God, Christian, Muslim, or take your pick. My belief is much like a coin, flipped into the air to land, improbably, on edge and stand there. Perhaps wobbling and teetering a bit, but not ready to take that leap of faith one way or the other. To me, it seems that deciding to believe that God’s there or not, has to be done without the benefit of convincing evidence for or against
Taming the Chinese Rare-Earth Tiger 3 replies
Posted by DVC 3/18/2021 1:06:38 PM Post Reply
Much is made of China's dominance in the rare earth elements (REE). Currently, China controls over 90% of the refined or processed market for REEs. Most advanced technologies, including weapon systems, depend on REEs, and adequate substitutes do not exist. On the surface, China's monopolistic control over refined REEs induces a severe case of the vapors among U.S. national security analysts. But how extensive and stable is China's control of the REE market? If China's market control is neither extensive nor stable, perhaps doing nothing or policies that target China's Achilles heel would be the U.S.'s best course of action.
The Case for Closing Public Schools…

For the past year, parents and students across the county, mostly in Democrat-run municipalities, have been experiencing excessive levels of stress due to unending school closures. Red states like Florida, Texas, and South Dakota have been open for months. Meanwhile, the teacher’s unions have a stranglehold on the public schools in Democrat states, refusing to open for a litany of absurd reasons. Part of me sympathizes with the conservative parents who are struggling to cope with working from home and the online curriculum management of their children. (Though that sympathy does not extend to liberal parents who knowingly voted for this lunacy.) But I am struggling to understand why

For instance, 60% of Republicans think the ARP, the American Rescue Plan, the most comprehensive progressive piece of legislation we passed in decades, is a good thing. How many Republican Senators voted for it? Zero. Why? It’s because Trump still controls them. They’re still afraid of him.

The NCAA reaffirmed its decision to refuse to hold college championships in states where laws “discriminate” against male athletes who identify as female. The board of governors issued a statement that “firmly and unequivocally” supports the inclusion of transgender athletes in college sports. The statement comes after several states have passed laws preventing biological males from competing in girls’ athletics. Apparently, the NCAA, which governs rules on competition in college sports, thinks it’s OK for biological males to compete against biological females. The only way they can allow this is if they ignore the biology in favor of being fashionable. In truth, the NCAA isn’t doing anything differently than

The Pentagon is attempting to develop a coronavirus vaccine that would protect recipients from all variants and add implantable microchip technology that can detect the virus in the body.

The words “epic” or “magnificent” are becoming cliched because they’re constantly used as clickbait headlines for things that are anything but “epic” or “magnificent.” That’s a shame because both words apply with their original force to Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue on Monday night. He brought both logic and passion to explaining that the Democrat party’s open borders policy is deliberately intended to import people who will vote for Democrats. In hindsight, what he said is completely obvious but too few people think about illegal immigration in the terms Tucker did. More must if we are to preserve our liberty-oriented, merit-based, constitutional republic.
