What If it was a LGBTQ Banner? Running from Beto, Chick Fil A does Matt 6:33, Skipping school and Nevertrump for Biden under the Fedora

You might remember the cheerleaders who were in trouble for unfurling a Trump banner at a game. That caused some fuss and with word that parents were planning to attend with American flags, what does the district do cancel the next game:

Ask yourself one question.  If the banner had been a global warming banner, or a LGBTQ banner or an Obama banner how would the media have reacted?  Would there be any other story in the news?


Beto O’Rourke’s “we’re going to take your guns” comments are causing a lot of fear and grief, among Democrats who privately would love to say what he said but knows that it would destroy them. In fact I would wager that there are several house seats and senate seats that are going to go GOP this year thanks to that statement.

Oh and while we’re on the subject, how can you buy back what you don’t own? This is Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce


Many years ago I covered a protest against Chick-Fil-A back in the days when there was only one location in the state. Ten years after the left decided to make them public enemy number one they are now the #3 restaurant chain in the US and have more than doubled sales.

I guess their foes didn’t realize that when Christ said… ” But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. ” he meant it


Just for the record if I was in school and it was made clear that the school, the news media and the whole world would celebrate me if I skipped for a day, I’d jump on that bandwagon laughing my ass off…until my parents found out and then I’d get off in a hurry.

So let’s not pretend that this climate protest was anything but a stunt


The latest verse in the “I’m the MSM I am song” is apparently bad news for Never Trump republicans as it has the potential to hurt Joe Biden by opening him up to scrutiny that he can’t handle and put them in the position of having to either support a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or stay home.

I don’t see the confusion for them, while there are a few Nevertrumpers like Allahpundit for whom any democrat is beyond the pale apparently for the other “true conservatives” Obamacare, abortion and open borders are all fine as long as it comes from old Joe.

That tells me all I needed to know about how conservative they ever were.

Quick Thoughts Under the Fedora, Quarterbacks, Portland Antifa, Yes Minister, Stacy Women and Math is hard for Greta

If you are a Patriot’s fan you probably like what you see after two games in the new rookie quarterback Jarrett Stidham so far after two games. I predict that if he continues to do well we are going to hear the same nonsense about trading Tom Brady as we did in the past about Jimmy G. Let me remind everyone of two things:

  1. These games don’t count.
  2. The Patriots QB job is Brady’s as long as he wants and can do it.

Nothing else matters.


Every time I see Antifa beating up people in Portland and the police sitting back and letting them do it I’m reminded of three things.

  1. The people thereof voted for the government that is letting them do it.
  2. There are a lot of liberals nationwide, particularly in my opinion journalists who would like to beat their political opponents in the same way.
  3. I’m damn lucky I didn’t move to Portland when I had the chance 30 years ago.

As John Wayne’s Rooster Cogburn said in the original True Grit “You can’t serve papers on a rat,baby sister, you have to kill them or let them be. ”  It’s the same with Antifa, you have to go in with force to arrest them and defeat them or let them rule the streets.  Portland has chosen the latter.  Although in fairness it’s still my opinion that the left wants one or more of these Antifa guys to get shot and killed to try and Kent State Trump.


The most amazing thing about the television series Yes Minister / yes Prime Minister is how timeless they are. When you watch episodes of them you realize that the very same debates on the very same subjects with the very same dynamics are still going on both in England the United States. Most importantly the division in the show isn’t by party it’s the pols vs the bureaucrats which has always been the division in government.


I was Reading Stacy McCain’s latest who even when he’s listening to the radio on a drive with his wife can’t escape crazy feminists:

 She is a clichéd stereotype of the neurotic liberal woman: “In all honesty, I never even imagined myself becoming a mother. My teen years and early 20s were spent just trying to get my act together. I had an anxiety disorder, depression and was married and divorced from my first husband by the time I was 23 years old.” Her sex life? Also a cliché: “Before I met my husband, I dated a bunch of not-nice guys. I peppered in a few nice guys here and there, but I think I was so insecure and unhappy at that time that I either drove those good guys away or grew bored of their niceness.” 

While I’m always happy to hear about these people added to the list of who I refer to as “Stacy’s Women” as I have a standing prayer intention for them, I’ve noticed that invariably these people have mental illness, admit they have mental illness, yet the left is rushing to embrace the ideas of such people as a model for their lives.

It’s a good thing the left doesn’t hire mechanics to fix their brakes using this standard or there would be bodies all over the highway.


Finally this story demonstrates why it’s a bad idea to leave decisions on how to run your government or business to children:

Climate activist Greta Thunberg causes more greenhouse gas emissions from her sailing trip from the United Kingdom to the United States than if she had flown. About five employees would sail the yacht back to Europe, said Andreas Kling, spokesman for Thunberg skipper Boris Herrmann, on Thursday the taz.
“Of course, they fly over there, that’s no different,” says Kling. Herrmann will also take the plane for the return journey. The sailing trip triggers at least six climate-damaging air travel across the Atlantic. If Thunberg had flown with her father, only two would have been necessary to come to New York.

I know that math is hard but I would have thought young Miss Thunberg could figure out that 6  > 2 .  Moreover if she really cared about her “carbon footprint” why didn’t she just attend the conference via Skype without leaving her house.

Can you imagine what’s going to happen once she hits 21 and the novelty of being the child prophet of climate change is gone?  Let’s hope that in 12 years I’m not reading about her on Stacy’s blog talking about her problems adjusting.
