Under the Fedora Thoughts not on Twitter for 12/6/18

Every time I see a blog com­ment gen­er­ated via face­book which starts I am mak­ing a real GOOD MONEY I get a slightly smug feel­ing of sat­is­fac­tion know­ing that.

I’m not on facebook

I still approve com­ments by hand

Yeah it short­ens the con­ver­sa­tion and likely costs me hits as you don’t get the instant back and forth but at least the site isn’t crowded by that kind of nonsense.


As I’m busy pat­ting myself on the back I’d like to trum­pet the theme I’ve finally set­tled on, I’ve got a minor tweak or two to make to the columns but it looks like a a real win­ner and I really like the top photo from an early CPAC back at the hotel in DC proper with Smithy, Stacy and me in the front and Nice Deb in the back­ground on the right.

That was a great day with peo­ple I really like and That photo makes me smile every time I see it


I’m not pat­ting on the back the peo­ple in Nevada who sud­denly find them­selves with a gov­er­nor who is push­ing gun con­trol:

There’s noth­ing Sisolak’s propos­ing that would have a pos­i­tive impact on any­thing except the feel­ings of left-​leaning anti-​gunner. That’s it.

But then again, it’s what Democ­rats do.

If you give your votes to a party that wants to take away your rights, but for a few months every four years pre­tends oth­er­wise you have no busi­ness com­plain­ing when they do.


One might argue that the whole “bal­lot har­vest­ing” busi­ness in Cal­i­for­nia is not “steal­ing an elec­tion” as the law per­mits it but if you want to put it in proper per­spec­tive, it’s as if the Daley machine passed a law allow­ing rel­a­tives to sub­mit bal­lots on the behalf of rel­a­tives long dead on the grounds that they knew how they would have voted if they were still alive.

When you pass a law that enables and encour­ages fraud it’s not for the sake of fair elec­tions, it’s for the sake of a desired result.


I feel bad for Tony Dok­oupil. Imag­ine being wed less that a year to a beau­ti­ful suc­cess­ful woman and then hear­ing said woman pub­licly pro­claim how point­less her life is due to cli­mate change.

What kind of per­son in gen­eral thinks or talks like that, par­tic­u­larly in public.

Though I’m rather dis­tressed that nei­ther of my sons have found a young lady yet it’s moments like this that remind me that find­ing “A” woman is worse than find­ing the wrong woman who will raise your grand­chil­dren. As it says in the book of Sir­ach:

Desire not a brood of worth­less chil­dren, nor rejoice in wicked off­spring. Many though they be, exult not in them if they have not the fear of the LORD. Count not on their length of life, have no hope in their future. For one can be bet­ter than a thou­sand; rather die child­less than have god­less children!

Sir­ach 16:13


FYI I’m on day 13 of at least a 14 straight day stretch at work, I hope to get a lit­tle more blog­ging in when I get a tad more rest but I have a new wash­ing machine to pay for.

Every time I see a blog comment generated via facebook which starts I am making a real GOOD MONEY… I get a slightly smug feeling of satisfaction knowing that.

One might argue that the whole “ballot harvesting” business in California is not “stealing an election” as the law permits it but if you want to put it in proper perspective, it’s as if the Daley machine passed a law allowing relatives to submit ballots on the behalf of relatives long dead on the grounds that they knew how they would have voted if they were still alive.

When you pass a law that enables and encourages fraud it’s not for the sake of fair elections, it’s for the sake of a desired result.


I feel bad for Tony Dokoupil.  Imagine being wed less that a year to a beautiful successful woman and then hearing said woman publicly proclaim how pointless her life is due to climate change.

What kind of person in general thinks or talks like that, particularly in public.

Though I’m rather distressed that neither of my sons have found a young lady yet it’s moments like this that remind me that finding “A” woman is worse than finding the wrong woman who will raise your grandchildren. As it says in the book of Sirach:

Desire not a brood of worthless children, nor rejoice in wicked offspring. Many though they be, exult not in them if they have not the fear of the LORD. Count not on their length of life, have no hope in their future. For one can be better than a thousand; rather die childless than have godless children!

Sirach 16:1-3
