I’ve Seen This Movie

Bedtime Biden is suddenly postulating that it would be a terrific idea to quarantine the entire state of Florida. Just restrict the whole lot of us to our alligator and pestilence infested borders: pesky, popular governor, whole lot less dead people overall, vastly more grannies still breathing than Killer Cuomo, no leather dominatrix vibes like Michigan’s soul crushing Whitler, people WORKING, EATING, SUPERBOWLING. Just wants to box the whole mess up, for God’s sake, and get it over with.

Not surprisingly, that same popular-because-he’s-competent governor has a problem with Bedtime’s approach to virus management:

As vaccinations in the state continue, Gov. Ron DeSantis rebuffed domestic travel restrictions, to or from Florida, that the Biden administration is considering because of concerns the COVID variants are threatening to exacerbate the pandemic.

“I think it would be unconstitutional. I think it would be unwise and it would be unjust,” DeSantis said Thursday during a news briefing in Port Charlotte. “Any attempt to restrict or lock down Florida would be an attack on our state done particularly for political purposes. We will not back down. If anyone tries to target us, we will respond swiftly.”

Governor DeSantis (MY governor) also pointed out a glaring inconsistency in Sleepy Joe’s erstwhile edict fever dreams (happy emphasis mine):

The governor said he opposes restricting the right of Americans to travel freely throughout the country while allowing illegal immigrants to pour across the southern border “unmolested,” adding that it would be a “ridiculous and damaging farce.” 

And WHY do we love this guy?

HE FIGHTS.

I would expect that the geniuses running Joe Biden (meant as written) will shortly stand upon their pandemic porn soapy boxes to scream as emotionally as they are able that this transcends “constitutional” liberties, because…HUMANITY! HOW DARE YOU! HITLER! FOR THE CHILDREN!!!

And, well…you know…their autocratic, auto- default. They’re already practicing, I KNOW it.

Google “Best Governor”

Bet it comes up RON DESANTIS.

Who would be my governor, here in the great state of Florida.

What’s he done now? Besides letting us LIVE OUR LIVES in the age of Pandemic Porn and Democratic Dictatorial Darkness?

Just issued some recommendations that may be setting the Lords of the Valley back on their censorial heels a bit, that’s all. They’re going to call it the “Transparency in Technology Act,” and it’s being characterized as “Ron DeSantis declares war on ‘big tech cartel’.” I like the sound of that.

The Governor, addressing reporters at the State Capitol after Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting, blasted the “monopoly of communications platforms” that “monitor and control” Floridians.

Among the proposals the Governor outlined were the following: requiring notice of change of terms of services; preventing platforms from rapidly changing standards; allowing people to opt out of content algorithms; $100,000 daily fines for “deplatforming” candidates for office; and creating a “cause of action” pathway for legal action, either from the Attorney General or private citizens under the guise of deceptive and unfair practices.

The moves to “protect privacy” from the expanding powers of Big Tech are necessary because the system is rigged, the Governor asserted.

Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms have “changed from neutral platforms to enforcers of preferred narratives,” DeSantis said.

Gotta start somewhere, right? And it’s particularly delicious that the Left’s favorite governor is going to be the one to throw the first gauntlet down.

Governor DeSantis explained his thinking on Tucker Carlson’s last night. It was GREAT.

Not like they don’t already have the pitchfork and torches out for this guy, so have at it. We love him.

UPDATE: ERMAGERD, loving him even MORE after watching THIS:

Gimme a break. Don’t whiz on my leg, and try to tell me it’s raining.

“But We Didn’t Think You MEANT It!”

In the continuing saga of “Go woke, go broke,” Democratic Blue New Mexico leaders are shockedSHOCKED?, mind you- to find out old daft Joe wasn’t pulling their finger about fracking.

“…Some New Mexico officials are now trying to defend themselves by saying they didn’t anticipate the new President would issue such a ban, but such protests ring rather hollow given that they most assuredly did understand that Biden plans to move ahead with his fracking ban, which would for all intents and purposes have the same effect….”

“…[T]he reality is that [New Mexico’s Democratic Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham] and her administration can strive to “diversify” the state’s energy portfolio all they want, but the state will still lose hundreds of millions of dollars every year should the Biden administration succeed in shutting down her state’s oil and gas business.

To be clear: Neither the state nor the federal government collects any royalties on solar installations or wind farms. There is no severance tax to be collected from those alternative forms of energy with which to fund the state’s schools or hospitals, or to sustain the free in-state college tuition program Lujan herself established in 2019 thanks to New Mexico’s new Permian/Delaware Basin windfall….”

Paging Capt Renault!

SHOCKED!!!

Damn if I don’t feel a derisive snicker coming on.

I suppose that would make it a “snort.”

An Evening for Scotsmen

A happy Robert Burns Night to my fellow Scots (Clan MacEwan, Barony of Otter here), and those who wish they could be!

In a bit of a quandary, as I’d like to celebrate in more than spirit, BUT. I’m nae a Scotch drinker, and, perusing traditional, haggis-free Scottish side dish recipes, I find they’re all just as loathsome and bland as the food was when I spent ten days rambling around the homeland of my ancestors and my own heart.

God help me, I love it all, but they can’t cook for shit.

However YOU celebrate, a wonderful evening to you, and lang may yer lum reek!

Some hae meat and canna eat,

And some wad eat that want it,

But we hae meat and we can eat,

And sae the Lord be thankit.”

Busy Weekend

The Squid Terrorist decided we needed to get going installing the fortress battlements between the houses (also known as: new, IMPROVED, ‘try knocking THIS down, you hurricanes, you‘ fence?????).

Then major dad worked his magic over an oak fire for a perfect Santa Maria tri-tip Sunday supper.

NOW it can it rain.

A Gathering of Intellectual Titans is Imminent

The signs are everywhere.

I can feel it. I can hear it coming.

Can you?

With slobbering sycophants, who hyperbolize every mundane, done-a-million-times-before, was-even-evil-when-the-previous-administration-did-it occurrence, turning them into fantabulous portents of greatness, wisdom, and light.

God almighty.

It’s fucking fireworks, dude.

#ThanksBidenVoters

#NeverMind

Let the HEALING and UNITY Begin

They’ve almost got the camps ready for us YOU (not me, I didn’t do anything…).

It seems to me that we’ve got to be grateful for the naked aggression and vindictive proscriptions planned in these pronouncements, as it belies the burbling bullshit of the past four years, re: accusations of Trump voters (and Trump himself) as NAZIS/racists/dictators/fascists/brown shirts. The only ones ever talking about such actions were these guys. And now the ones seriously contemplating how to stomp their fellow citizens…well, no, wait. They don’t consider them/us/you/me “fellow” anything, do they? Lemme rephrase.

Now, the only ones seriously contemplating how to stomp the heathen occupiers in the wilderness outside the Sacred Circle of Wokeness and Light into submission/proper subjugation to the myriad constituencies comprising the New Order are, yet again, these guys. I’m beginning to think the tortured calls of NAZI/RACIST/FASCIST/BROWNSHIRT/DICTATOR were projection. RIGHT?!

They were just practicing the lingo until they could actually act. Ergo the old truism:

Scratch a Leftie, reveal a Fascist.

As Heather MacDonald just put it

It’s an odd way to seek national unity: call a significant portion of the American public white supremacists, racists, and nativists. Welcome to the Biden presidency.

Joe Biden’s inaugural speech as 46th president is predictably being hailed for its “unifying” message. And just as predictably, his invocations of the divisive bromides of the identitarian Left are being swept under the rug.

According to Biden, we are a “great nation” and a “good people.” But we also oppress minorities with an ever-rising fervor. “Growing inequity” is among the greatest challenges facing the country, according to Biden, along with the “sting of systemic racism” and encroaching “white supremacy.” Only now are we confronting “a cry for racial justice, some four hundred years in the making.”

GAWD, we ARE awful, aren’t we? Who knew?

I hadn’t realized. Guess I’ll wait for the wait for the “camp” train with you guys. Somebody bring snacks, okay?

This FAWKING Hack

Dr. “Rachel” Levine, who condemned everyone ELSE’S mother/father/grandparents, to brutal, LONELY DEATHS in Pennsylvania nursing homes, while “her” mother got YANKED OUT to safety?

Is gonna be your new assistant Health and HUMAN Services Secretary.

Let me offer up a little trip back through COVID Memory Lane. Dr. Levine is a proponent of the “Cuomo Theory of Elderly Care During Pandemics” better known as “Killing Your Grandparents Softly.”

Sen. Doug Mastriano, a first-term Republican representing Franklin, Adams and a part of York counties, said Levine has committed the equivalent of policy malpractice in her handling of the coronavirus pandemic, specifically in her handling of the virus’s spread through nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Mastriano specifically targeted Levine for a policy which called for nursing home and long-term care patients who had been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19 to be returned to their homes when they were ready for release from hospitals. Mastriano said that contributed to major outbreaks in numerous nursing homes around the state.

“Our secretary of health, Dr. Levine, decided that it would be good to allow COVID-positive patients to be returned to elder-care facitlies. And as a result of that, it broke out like fire,” Mastriano said during a rally with constituents at the base of the Capitol steps Monday.

“The very same people our secretary of health said were going to be vulnerable… It unleashed heck upon our dearly beloved fathers, mothers, grandparents, aunts and uncles. I think that’s unconscionable, unacceptable, and that secretary needs to be held accountable for that awful decision,” Mastriano said.

The good doctor’s mom? Oh, she got HER the HELL outta HER nursing home, no worries.

Do I CARE if he/she’s the FIRST anything?

No.

Do I CARE if he/she’s a DECENT HUMAN BEING/COMPETENT MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL/HAS THE BEST INTEREST OF EVERY BREATHING SOUL IN THIS COUNTRY at his/her miserable, shrunken heart?

Well. Yeah. And demonstrably doesn’t.

Trump’s “blistering” Mt Rushmore speech…

…and the transcript:

When in the Course of Human Events

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

God bless, GOD BLESS America.

Memorial Day 2020

There might not be tiny little American flags at Barrancas National Cemetery, but that’s just window dressing anyway.

We remember. Our John Perry. Capt Nathan Nylander.

All of them.

And thank them all from the bottom of our grateful hearts.

A Lifetime Ago

A lifetime for those there in the horror, and, for so precious many, the final days of their young lives.

Uncommon valor was a common virtue.
