The Dingbat Post

A deadly strain....
This isn’t about reporting or solving problems or even knowing what the truth is. The modern left is virtually indistinguishable from a Socialist propaganda machine. They invent problems so they can rail against the rich white males and when rich white males solve them, they become apoplectic. The problem with this kind of behavior is it ends up hurting everyone, no matter where they are on the political spectrum.

Shame On You, Scotland

Edinburgh Fringe and Free Speech
“The demands for censorship speak to the illiberal tendencies of much of the art world and their self-important overestimation of the impact of cultural boycotts. They are the kind of artists who call for artistic freedom for themselves, and for those whose opinions they approve of, but deny it to those who they disapprove of, or, in this case, those whose countries they disapprove of.”
Shame, Shame, Shame
And you want independence?  You do not deserve it.

Public Service

Gerry Tosh, Highland Park
The first time I had Lagavulin, I could not stop at 1,2,3 nosing.  I drew it slowly in many times, enjoying the exquisite aroma.   When I eventually got around to tasting it the sensuality of the peat almost overwhelmed me.  It is still my whisky of choice.  Ardbeg Uigeadail is my second choice, although I haven't found it locally yet.
Not that I don't enjoy the "mainland" whiskies.  They do have their own qualities I appreciate.   I have even been known to have a blended or two and am still living to tell the tale.
I just prefer the island single malts.  I also enjoy going to the small town of Luss on Loch Lomond.  All homes are heated with peat.  My love affair with peat must be in my genes.
I do love his accent and my favourite line:
"Please don't get led down a garden path by somebody who says I can smell you know winter berries picked on a Wednesday by left handed people! it is not important, that is not how it works."
That could be said for the wine snobs as well.

Joke of the Day

A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. 
 He grew up big, 6' 2", strong as a longhorn, and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. 
 When he finally came of age, he applied to where he had only dreamed of working: the West Texas Sheriff's Department.
 After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man's last interview. 
 The Chief Deputy said, "You're a big strong kid and you can really shoot. So far your qualifications all look good, but we have, what you might call, an "Attitude Suitability Test", that you must take before you can be accepted. We just don't let anyone carry our badge, son."
 Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief said, "Take this pistol and go out and shoot: 
 six illegal aliens, 
 six lawyers, 
 six meth dealers, 
 six Muslim extremists, 
 six Democrats, 
 and a rabbit."
 "Why the rabbit?" queried the applicant.
 "You pass," said the Chief Deputy. "When can you start?"

Strange Bedfellows

From On the North River

Maybe not so strange.  The Clintons are despicable, to put it mildly.
