Laughing at the Left

Sure, "comedy" in our pop culture these days is little more than snide comments made by rich commies attacking right minded people but, that doesn't mean we can't still have some laughs at the expense of our self declared enemies!

Mike Pence has “avoiding the proximate occasions of sin” Nailed

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and … Continue reading Mike Pence has “avoiding the proximate occasions of sin” Nailed

C’mon, Bob Seger, We Want To Buy Your Old Time Rock And Roll Records

Creative people, regardless of their chosen vessel, almost unanimously share two common traits. They are to some degree unbalanced (more on that in a future post), and they are inept at judging their own work. A prime example is Robert Plant's unshakable belief that Physical Graffiti was Led Zeppelin's best album. Um, sure. Another trap … Continue reading C’mon, Bob Seger, We Want To Buy Your Old Time Rock And Roll Records

Focus on the enemy, Mr. President

The failure of the American Health Care Act was a major setback for Paul Ryan's agenda. It may or may not have been a setback for President Trump's agenda. That remains to be seen.

Disney would like this story to go away

but I suspect even though the MSM will avoid it like the plague it will spread all over social media. But over the past few years, I'd say 4-5 that I noticed. Men...who were in some stage of transition and making every attempt to be a woman from mascara to heels. Transgenders who certainly felt … Continue reading Disney would like this story to go away

Z gives concerning this priest in particular is spot on. Whether this priest struggles with doubts of faith, laziness, pride – or he was appallingly poorly trained … Continue reading The Next Time you Critique your Parish Priest…

BOHICA For Him, But Not For Them

by baldilocks The little guys have to follow the rules; the Big Guys and Girls, not so much.

It’s the Supreme Court Stupid!

If you asked Republicans the most important reason they voted for Donald Trump, a significant number would answer the U.S. Supreme Court. The nomination of Neil Gorsuch is more important that Obamacare, the wall or anything else. It is conceivable that Trump may appoint at least two other justices during his tenure as Justices Ginsburg … Continue reading It’s the Supreme Court Stupid!

Defund Planned Parenthood immediately. No need to attach it to any other bills.

One of the strategies Speaker Paul Ryan used in attempting to sell the American Health Care Act was to include defunding Planned Parenthood as part of the deal. It was a good attempt to sugarcoat "Obamacarelite" with some conservative honey for positive press and leverage against right-wing opposition to the bill, but it obviously didn't … Continue reading Defund Planned Parenthood immediately. No need to attach it to any other bills.

In this BBC 2 television show, Peaky Blinders, set in Birmingham, England beginning in 1919, World War I casts its shadow over the lead characters. Three seasons have been … Continue reading Review: Peaky Blinders so far

Will the Obamacare repeal failure be Donald Trump’s Monck at Gabbard Moment?

He still held to the all out attack as the key to victory. But there were others in the fleet who knew more that he about exactly how to press home that attack on the water. He summoned Penn, Lawson and the other experienced seamen among his officers to his ripped and patched flagship.
