About Me

Retired 3x, living comfortably on the Gulf Coast, biking, beachwalking, lifting free weights, eating mostly properly, keeping my mind active, in my seventh decade, intending to give Methuselah a run for the record...

Journal Archives

I kinda thought these were ''acid rock'' back then, but I guess it's more ''folk pop?''...

Anyway, they made an impression...


Black civil rights activist Najee Ali is calling for the arrest and prosecution of actor Jussie Smollett for allegedly lying about being the victim of a hate crime, saying Smollett could have unintentionally triggered a “race war”.

During a press conference yesterday, Ali, who is the director of Project Islamic HOPE, said Smollett’s actions were an insult to real victims of hate crime.

“It’s a slap in the face. We have many members of the black community and the LGBTQ community who have been the victims of racism and hate crimes, so for Smollett to say that he was a victim…and we believe is a lie…certainly is an injustice to those true victims…,” Ali said. “Jussie Smollett must be brought to justice for lying.”

Dont expect apologies from the left over Jussie Smollett attack fraud

A lot of explosive material can get defused with nine little letters: “I was wrong.” It works wonders with your significant other. Try it. Frequently. This week, now that the Chicago Police Department has “shifted the trajectory of the investigation” and now believes Jussie Smollett may have faked his own bias attack, we’ll be hearing apologies from a lot of progressive activists, celebrities and politicians.

With three simple words, they’ll disarm their detractors, pour oil on troubled waters. They’ll help to reunify a culture by admitting that sometimes their ideological opponents are correct.

Just kidding. Don’t hold your breath waiting for mea culpas from Cory Booker, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris, or (throwback time!) Al Sharpton, who opined that if Donald Trump simply remained silent on the Smollett matter, it would be sinister. The formerly successful actress Ellen Page blamed the nonexistent assault on … Mike Pence.

People said to be super-smart, and also Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, fell all over themselves to announce that they not only believed the woke 21st-century version of a 1980s abducted-by-aliens story but that they were in anguish about it. And they were not only in anguish but had detected an urgent sociological message about the nefariousness of the hateful right in America today.

Just to grease their path as they were skiing off the cliff, Trump pulled off one of his subtlest trolls yet when he publicly agreed with them, so they couldn’t accuse him of being insensitive. As an old military saying goes, never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.

Nancy Pelosi has taken down some internet blather, but that's not an actual apology, that's a slither back under a rock...

So he replied to a scam e-mail...

Patrick Caddell, pollster to Jimmy Carter, dies at 68

Patrick Caddell, the pollster who helped propel Jimmy Carter in his longshot bid to win the presidency and later distanced himself from Democrats, has died, a colleague said Saturday night. He was 68. Caddell died Saturday in Charleston, South Carolina, after suffering a stroke. That’s according to Professor Kendra Stewart of the College of Charleston, who confirmed the death to The Associated Press.

After working with Democrats in the 1970s and 1980s, Caddell eventually drifted away from the Democratic Party and began advising supporters of Republican Donald Trump and was a contributor to Fox News for a time.

In explaining his break from Democrats, Caddell said he thought the party was no longer “a party of the people” but had been hijacked by elites, the well-educated, Wall Street and interest groups.

He noted in a 2016 speech to students at Michigan’s Hillsdale College that he was offended when the Democrats at their national convention would not allow Pennsylvania Gov. Bob Casey Sr., who was against abortion, to deliver a convention speech. Caddell considered the Democrats to be guilty of “the stifling of dissent.”
And he commended Trump for reaching out to people the Democrats were not effective in reaching, and his willingness to take on “the political class.”

Don't move to Florida! Pleeeeease...

When I moved here, twenty years ago, from Texas, I saw a few signs, "TEXANS! Enjoy your visit...
and then GO HOME!" I smiled (sneered) and put down roots. I became accustomed to half-empty Public grocery store parking lots, wide aisles with two or three other shoppers, checkout clerks waving you into their available vacant line.

I became accustomed to traffic lights on two-lane each way roadways, where if you were stopped, you might have a dozen or so other drivers waiting with you. I learned about "the season" when the "snow birds" would be arriving in Florida, escaping the northern cold as they occupied their Winter Florida home or condo. THEN the Publix markets and the roadways would become unusually crowded, thirty or so cars at a red light, having to park maybe ten spaces back from the market doors, maneuvering through twelve or more people in the shopping aisle.

STILL, come the warmer months (most months), the snow birds would fly back to where the ice and snow had melted, leaving Florida to bask in air-conditioned semi-solitude.

That's the way it WAS.

NOW, even with an extra lane each way added to the local main roads, so many people have moved to Florida that, on the occasion, I'll sit in my car looking way ahead where the light just turned green, and I KNOW I won't arrive there until the light has cycled back to red. And it's like a two minute cycle! I went shopping at Publix a couple of weeks ago and there were no shopping carts available in the vestibule. I mentioned that at Customer Service and she waved her arm and said, "They're all in use in here!"

On the five acre field next to me, one developer bought half of it and is turning it into a seven-home gated community with its own series of intracoastal waterway docks, each house a different design, so long as they're all white with blue trim. One is a freaking' 3-story with 10-foot ceilings throughout. A different developer will be building on a lot adjoining my property, a house immediately west of mine (bye-bye my water views) and two homes on the intracoastal.

Up and down my one mile street, once-vacant lots are being built on, some cottages (commonly known as tear-downs) are being torn down with a variety of new homes being built. Both builders have approached me about my interest in selling. I've informed them that I'm a highly UNmotivated seller.

I'm 300' from the intracoastal, 1/3rd of a mile from the Gulf of Mexico, and 6/10ths of a mile to the boardwalk fronting the public beach, I LIKE it here!

So, going back to the thread title.. never mind, it's already too late...

Binge-watching TV with my new Comcast Xfinity installation...

... and 6-channel DVR. Now up to the current episode of "60 Days In" and beginning the "Arial America" series from the beginning. Also up to day seven of a nasty flu episode, gradually clearing my lungs of crap...

DOJ Plane, Loading Boxes Of Evidence, Spotted Next To Clinton Foundation

A DOJ plane was spotted next to the Clinton Foundation in Little Rock, Arkansas, loading boxes of documents on Wednesday.

Employees from the Justice Department were seen loading boxes of documents into a DOJ-owned Boeing 757-223 jumbo jet.

According to experts, the flight path of the plane indicted that it was travelling from Clinton’s hometown of Little Rock back to the DC Area.

Gucci pulls polo neck after 'blackface' claims

Gucci pulled a black polo neck sweater from its shops Thursday after it sparked comparisons with racially offensive golliwog and "blackface" imagery.

The "balaclava jumper" can be pulled up to the eyes with the mouth visible through large red lips.
"Happy Black History Month y'all," one African American fashionista tweeted ironically, with others pointing out the resemblance to a golliwog.

It actually DOES look golliwog-ish, that was my first thought!...

..a musical interlude...

Meet the Republican Who Could Take over Virginia in Doomsday Scenario for Democrats

Virginia Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirk Cox could become the first Republican governor in nearly a decade if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, and Attorney General Mark Herring resign amidst their political scandals.

Herring faced controversy as Virginia Attorney General Herring admitted that he wore blackface at a college party in 1980 on Wednesday. In a statement Herring said he and two friends dressed up to look like rappers.
Herring was among the many politicians and public figures who called on Gov. Northam to resign, as he admitted to recently wearing blackface and his medical school yearbook featured two men– one in blackface and the other in Ku Klux Klan attire– in the photo.
