Rape, Liars, and the Left

Lying Lena
I hope "Barry One" sues Lena into oblivion.

Rolling Stone UVA
I hope the Fraternity sues Rolling Stone, the author of the piece, and "Jackie" into oblivion.

False rape claims are heinous.  They do an injustice to the falsely accused and to real rape victims.   Yet they are forgiven and excused by the feminists and the left (yes I repeat myself) time after time.
I would suggest they also sue the publishers.  For RS and the publisher of Dunham's book to not fact check the stories before publishing is completely irresponsible but then journalists and editors lost their credibility years ago.  They all want to be Bradley, Woodward and Bernstein.

The Bond Girls

Monica Belluci (below) is being touted as the oldest Bond girl yet.  She just turned 50 (picture is not recent.)

But I say Judi Dench is the oldest - after all she is M and therefore a Bond girl.  Again, picture is not recent.

Both women are still very sexy

Happy Thanksgiving


Over the river, and through the wood,
To Grandmother's house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river, and through the wood -
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
As over the ground we go.
Over the river, and through the wood,
To have a first-rate play.
Hear the bells ring, "Ting-a-ling-ding",
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!
Over the river, and through the wood
Trot fast, my dapple-gray!
Spring over the ground like a hunting-hound,
For this is Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river, and through the wood -
And straight through the barnyard gate,
We seem to go extremely slow,
It is so hard to wait!
Over the river, and through the wood -
Now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Good News for me

At last!

I start a job on Monday.  A real job, full time with benefits.  We will see how it goes.  One hundred and fifty four weeks later.....

Sorry, comrades, but when it comes to the bedroom I’ll have to vote Tory.

But then I belong to that small, deviant group of liberal-lefty-pro-feminist men who find conservative/right-wing women super sexy. In an age when anything goes — at least in terms of sexual pleasure — ours is a lust that dare not speak its name.
and -

Right-wing women have always had a bad press when it comes to sex. They are usually portrayed in novels, sitcoms and films as sexually uptight, prudish and repressed by Victorian values or religious faith. Sex for them, goes the stereotype, is something one does for purposes of procreation. By contrast, women of the left are seen as sexually liberated and thus more open-minded when it comes to sexual experimentation.
That may have been true in the 1970s, but nowadays it’s more likely to be women of the left who are uptight and repressed — and that’s due to a sexual correctness that has come in the wake of third-wave feminism. Don’t get me wrong. Feminism has done a lot of good for women — and men — but it aims to take all the dirt and dark stuff out of sex. Consequently, the bedroom has become a minefield where you have to take care what you say, lest you cause an explosion of feminist wrath.
There is so much more.  I found the entire article amusing.  Especially the second to last sentence.

Too bad right wing women don't feel the same about "liberal-lefty-pro-feminist men".  Too bad for them, that is.

Sexual Harassment?

the Other McCain  2014

Found at Maggie's Farm  1951

Two very different articles.   Sixty-three years in between the two incidents and much has changed.  I feel pity for the troubled women of today.  So much for the state education promoting self-esteem.

I have been verbally noticed by men on the streets.  Not so much now.  The first time was when I had just turned 13.  It made me uncomfortable and I blamed it on the slacks my mother thought looked great on me.  I never wore them again.  Who knows?  As I grew older, I noticed that my hair was the topic of conversation from the guys.  When I worked in an office building on Hollywood Blvd, I was verbally noticed every day.
I never felt harassed or threatened.  In fact I smiled inside.  It was nice my efforts to look attractive were appreciated.  At the same time I did not look or acknowledge the loquacious gentlemen.  Since I did not look at them, for the most part I have no idea of their race and what they were wearing.  Hollywood Blvd was at the time (and probably still is) teeming with all manner of folk, up and down the food chain.
I was comfortable with my power.

ps:   Miss Manners has something to say on the subject!

and do these ladies look unhappy?

Child Abuse


Seriously?

More of the incredibly stupid ideas some people think will endear others to their cause.  I went to the fckh8 website so you don't have to.  It's an lgbt organization.
Yes, this is what lesbians think of little girls.

Because... Shoes

Questions:  Why is Obama fundraising?  Where is the money going?
Ok now over to shoes:

Over at PJ Media - Lifestyle, Paula writes about the 10 essential women's shoes of the 70s.  I only had two of them, #9 and #1.
I also had these shoes, which she neglects to mention.
They came in just about every colour and were made of canvas.  My favourites were black and tan.  I don't think I had the floral ones.  They were bought at Woolworth's for about $5.  I wish they were still available, but then we don't have Woolys in this country anymore.

A Very Prudent Policy

"I understand that not all Muslims are terrorists," she said. "I also believe there are as many Muslims who do not know what is in their Koran as there are Christians who do not know what is in their Bible.
"Since I have no way of discerning which Muslims will or will not kill in the name of their religion and the commands in their Koran... I choose to err on the side of caution for the safety of my patrons".

Why I Don't Like The Obamas

There is an excellent piece written by a black man on why he doesn't like the Obamas.  The only reason I mention race is obvious.
I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority. Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

Free Is A Relative Term

The lies and the spin and the political indoctrination of the left have all conspired to set up an alternate reality for about half of the voters. No longer do the facts stand on their own, the facts now have an independent meaning depending on your political orientation. Words no longer mean the same thing to people because a word may have different meanings to different people. While we may be speaking English, your English and mine may be two very different languages. As Confucius once said, how can you solve a problem when you cannot even communicate? And that's right where they want us.

Another Reason....

.....Scotland does not deserve independence.  Boycott Israel
Apart from the fact that all those who want independence plan to turn it into a socialist state.
I love Scotland.  I went to school there and the moment my foot first touched land I knew I was at home in my soul.  I love the Scots.  They are generous, welcoming and loyal to a fault.
But this need the yes voters have for "social justice" and socialism will only ruin their country.  They do not understand that the muslim is not their friend, and opening their borders to them is committing genocide for them.  They are not so much pro-Palestinian as they are anti-Israel.  They think that they will be able to care for their population "for free" from cradle to grave.
I do understand their desire for an independent country.  I share that with them.  But not the way the SNP has been proposing it.
But then the Scots have never been too bright in picking their leaders.  Had they been, there would have been no need for William Wallace.

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?"

The Border Solution

Taxicab Depressions (a great blog, by the way) has a wonderful solution to the border problem our great leaders have created.  Read it all here.
I have been reading a lot of thoughtful and interesting posts and articles about the current situation on our southern border and I am sure my readers (yes you- over there in the corner.  Yes I am talking to you) are reading the same.  I chose this post to share mainly because he says exactly everything I believe.  Except he left out the crocs and gators in the Rio Grande.

Come On People. Make Up Your Minds.

When I shop for food, I like to get "paper inside plastic."  It gives me the stability of paper and the handles of plastic.  The six bag combination (yes, my weekly shopping fills three bags) is a lot less than what I would use given only the plastic bag option.  Baggers tend to put two-three items in each plastic bag.  The combination also makes for the perfect bin-liner.   Occasionally, I use the PC re-usable bags.  I don't always  have them with me.
The other week I was told by a cashier that they are discontinuing the paper bag option.  So naturally I wrote to corporate protesting this move, citing all kinds of environmental crap.  They wrote back assuring me that there was no intention of discontinuing the paper.  They lied.  I went to the store a few days ago and was told they had discontinued the paper bags.  I loudly lamented, crying that Corporate had assured me this would not happen (implying that it was the store decision and not the big guys) .  The manager said she would look into it for me.  Yeah. Right.

Happy Independence Day, USA

image from Stormbringer (I think)


From Maggies Farm

It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.

I have been meaning to share the post below from Stormbringer for days.  Well, things happen in life and, with one thing or another, I am just getting around to it.  Because I waited, I am also able to share a video I am stealing from Kae.   What are friends about, eh?   Oops, I found another one from Stormbringer.

Out and About

I saw this sticker on a car today.  I love it.
But then again, the car also had this sticker:
I also had to yell at some eejit today, who for no reason I can think of, decided to cut me off and then slow down in front of me.   He gave me the finger when I honked my horn and he yelled back.  Haha
Eejit.  It is fun to travel about town in a car.

The Fine Art of Insulting

Laura at The Thinking Housewife takes exception to the crude insult uttered by a police commissioner in public.  I agree.  We must raise the level of our insults.  Base profanity is so common it hardly registers.   It is time to stand out above the crowd!

So, as a public service, I present to all of us the following alternatives:


 “A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”   All’s Well That Ends Well

 “Thy tongue outvenoms all the worms of Nile.”   Cymbeline

 “Thou clay-brained guts, thou knotty-pated fool, thou whoreson obscene greasy tallow-catch!”   Henry IV Part 1

Sing Along Friday Night

Another disappointment, another day.  So just sing along with Glenn and the boys.


I'm sorry for myself
I'm sorry for myself
So sorry for myself
Someone I love said good-bye
And no one's sorry for me that's why
I'm so sorry for myself

I'm blue as I can be
My man walked out on me
I'd go home and end it all
But fourteen stories is an awful fall
I'm so sorry for myself

I'm feeling mighty sad
I never looked so bad
I have lost my appetite
Couldn't eat my second steak last night
I'm so sorry for myself

So very blue am I
I wish I could die
Wish I had a nasty cough
I'd buy a gun but then it might go off
I'm so sorry for myself

I soon could end my woes
Down where the river flows
I would jump right in the sea
But no one may be there to rescue me
I'm so sorry for myself
