Quick Thoughts Under the Fedora Everything's Hate, Adding ACT, HoustonJim Brown

We men­tioned Act for Amer­ica feel­ing com­pelled to can­cel their nation­wide events Sept 9th. I’ve invited Dianne Ploss of Boston’s ACT chap­ter to join us for the Stacy McCain Buf­fet Books and Blather event in Leomin­ster. She has gra­ciously accepted and we look for­ward to see­ing her on our round­table panel. You can get tick­ets here.

Speak­ing of Stacy McCain he has noted that this ten­dency to embrace the vio­lent, the kooks the freaks and dis­avow any­one who cri­tiques them will have one result or as he put it: “Try­ing to win elec­tions by claim­ing that peo­ple who don’t vote for you are racist sex­ist homo­phobes is a good way to lose an elec­tion.

The Hous­ton dis­as­ter con­tin­ues and demon­strates some­thing impor­tant. That while we can make good sci­en­tific guesses our abil­ity to pre­dict the cycles of weather and cli­mate are lim­ited by the amount of years we’ve actu­ally been mea­sur­ing thus when it comes to any storm cycle that repeats over a period of 300 years or more, we haven’t got a clue.

The con­trast between those try­ing to help in Hous­ton and those who are riot­ing in Berke­ley or call­ing for the removal of mon­u­ments has been a dis­as­ter to the left and the media’s memes, or to put it another way, I’ve seen pic­tures of boats with Con­fed­er­ate flags sav­ing folks in Texas, I’ve not seen pic­tures of boats full of peo­ple in black wear­ing masks doing so.

Mean­while some things con­tinue as usual in places like Michi­gan: MICHI­GAN: TER­ROR INVES­TI­GA­TION NABS MUS­LIM WITH CACHE OF UNREG­IS­TERED WEAPONS IN YPSI­LANTI. Just because the MSM leaves this stuff to Pam Geller and oth­ers doesn’t mean it isn’t going on.

I was called back to work this week from the com­pany that laid me off, I started on Tues­day which is the 3rd work­day of this new shift I’m on. While I was out of work my read­ers pro­vided me with a pay­check every week I was out plus the equiv­a­lent of two more days worth of pay, I’ll leave you to decide it that is coin­ci­dence or providence.

Yes­ter­day on the radio I heard there was a march of min­is­ters against Trump which gave few details. One of the detals they left out was that it was orga­nized and led by Al Sharp­ton, pre­sum­ably because such info would defeat the MSM goal of por­tray­ing the march as an actual moral crusade.

When I was young the NAACP was known for stand­ing up to police dogs and angry Klans­men for the rights of aver­age peo­ple to go to school, sit at a lunch counter and live where they will. Now they are known for protest­ing on behalf of a mil­lion­aire foot­ball player unsigned after a 210 record and peo­ple won­der why they aren’t as respected as they once were.

All last week in Cleve­land while bas­ket­ball fans talked the big trade with the Celtics and Base­ball fans talked Indi­ans excit­ing divi­sion run, Foot­ball fans were talk­ing a dozen Browns play­ers includ­ing one white player, kneel­ing for the anthem and the fall­out from a judge, a VFW and a widow of a slain offi­cer. Lucky for Cleve­land the great­est Brown, Jim Brown got involved say­ing how he would never dis­re­spect the flag and the Browns decided to con­cen­trate on Foot­ball instead of protests this week and won.

To close on a foot­ball story actu­ally involv­ing foot­ball the New Eng­land Patri­ots has lost Julian Edel­man for the sea­son thanks to an injury in their 3rd pre­sea­son game. Despite what you are hear­ing from sites like this as long the offen­sive line and Tom Brady remain unin­jured Edelman’s absence from the Patriot lineup this year will have only a slightly greater effect on their play­off run than my own.

We mentioned Act for America feeling compelled to cancel their nationwide events Sept 9th.  I’ve invited Dianne Ploss of Boston’s ACT chapter to join us for the Stacy McCain Buffet Books and Blather event in Leominster.  She has graciously accepted and we look forward to seeing her on our roundtable panel.  You can get tickets here.

Speaking of Stacy McCain he has noted that this tendency to embrace the violent, the kooks the freaks and disavow anyone who critiques them will have one result or as he put it:  “Trying to win elections by claiming that people who don’t vote for you are racist sexist homophobes is a good way to lose an election. ” 

The Houston disaster continues and demonstrates something important. That while we can make good scientific guesses our ability to predict the cycles of weather and climate are limited by the amount of years we’ve actually been measuring thus when it comes to any storm cycle that repeats over a period of 300 years or more, we haven’t got a clue.

The contrast between those trying to help in Houston and those who are rioting in Berkeley or calling for the removal of monuments has been a disaster to the left and the media’s memes, or to put it another way, I’ve seen pictures of boats with Confederate flags saving folks in Texas, I’ve not seen pictures of boats full of people in black wearing masks doing so.

Meanwhile some things continue as usual in places like Michigan: MICHIGAN: TERROR INVESTIGATION NABS MUSLIM WITH CACHE OF UNREGISTERED WEAPONS IN YPSILANTI. Just because the MSM leaves this stuff to Pam Geller and others doesn’t mean it isn’t going on.

I was called back to work this week from the company that laid me off, I started on Tuesday which is the 3rd workday of this new shift I’m on. While I was out of work my readers provided me with a paycheck every week I was out plus the equivalent of two more days worth of pay, I’ll leave you to decide it that is coincidence or providence.

Yesterday on the radio I heard there was a march of ministers against Trump which gave few details. One of the detals they left out was that it was organized and led by Al Sharpton, presumably because such info would defeat the MSM goal of portraying the march as an actual moral crusade.

When I was young the NAACP was known for standing up to police dogs and angry Klansmen for the rights of average people to go to school, sit at a lunch counter and live where they will.  Now they are known for protesting on behalf of a millionaire football player unsigned after a 2-10 record and people wonder why they aren’t as respected as they once were.

All last week in Cleveland while basketball fans talked the big trade with the Celtics and Baseball fans talked Indians exciting division run, Football fans were talking a dozen Browns players including one white player, kneeling for the anthem and the fallout from a judge, a VFW and a widow of a slain officer. Lucky for Cleveland the greatest Brown, Jim Brown got involved saying how he would never disrespect the flag and the Browns decided to concentrate on Football instead of protests this week and won.

To close on a football story actually involving football the New England Patriots has lost Julian Edelman for the season thanks to an injury in their 3rd preseason game. Despite what you are hearing from sites like this as long the offensive line and Tom Brady remain uninjured Edelman’s absence from the Patriot lineup this year will have only a slightly greater effect on their playoff run than my own.
