Last Days of the European Christmas Markets

by baldilocks Mark Steyn on the terror attack at the Christmas Market in Strasbourg, France: [I]t is now taken for granted that Christmas markets across Europe have to be held behind the ugly throttling barriers of "security" - which as we saw yesterday are, ultimately, never secure. Because we [sic] won't put up security barriers … Continue reading Last Days of the European Christmas Markets

Freedom From Religion

On which the Bill of Rights is based by baldilocks My cousin Dyllan and I are very much alike and get along very well. This is interesting, since we are related by marriage (he is the grandson of my American dad’s sister), I’m more than old enough to be his mother, and we had virtually … Continue reading Freedom From Religion

Secret Weapon

by baldilocks Keeping a secret, that is, keeping one's mouth shut about what you are doing and accomplishing -- especially when there are people who would love nothing better than to see you fail -- is nearly a lost art, and there are many who don't understand the value of it, especially in the age … Continue reading Secret Weapon

But Will They Listen?

by baldilocks Public Tells House Dems — Don't Waste Time Investigating Trump: IBD/TIPP Poll The public wants the new Congress to focus on three areas when it convenes next year: health care costs, immigration, and jobs. Few, however, want the Democratically controlled House to make investigating the Trump White House a priority. That's the finding … Continue reading But Will They Listen?

General Locusts

by baldilocks It's the first of the month in the last month of the year and I've got nothing. However, I plan to do some reading on the shutdown of the Government General Motors plants and I will start here. A taste: General Motor’s announcement that it’s cutting thousands of jobs and closing several plants … Continue reading General Locusts

Sea Change: CNN Fires Marc Lamont Hill

Happy 10th Anniversary to DaTechGuy Blog! by baldilocks I'm old enough to remember when Marc Lamont Hill -- formerly of CNN -- used what I've termed as Rapist Logic after Mitt Romney posted a family photo on Twitter back in 2013. On Christmas Eve, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney offered a photo of himself, his … Continue reading Sea Change: CNN Fires Marc Lamont Hill

Make Them Push You Off the Battlefield (UPDATED)

by baldilocks Julie Kelly at American Greatness: If you are someone on the political Right who might quit Twitter because it just banned Jesse Kelly, here’s my plea: Don’t. After the shocking news spread Sunday night that Twitter had deplatormed the conservative influencer for unknown reasons, some conservatives are threatening to leave the social media site. Glenn … Continue reading Make Them Push You Off the Battlefield (UPDATED)

A Tad Rant-ish About Affirmative Action

by baldilocks This morning on Facebook, one of my friends shared a status about Wangari Maathai (1940-2011), who was the first African woman to receive a Nobel (Peace) Prize. I know of her primarily because, along with my father and hundreds of other Kenyans, Tanzanians and Ugandans, she came to American via the Mboya Airlift … Continue reading A Tad Rant-ish About Affirmative Action

Troll-Feeding and You

by baldilocks I was just thinking about trolls; rather fondly, in fact. There are very few on my Facebook page, because I run a tight ship there. I don't want my parents, nieces and nephews rushing in to defend me when some imbecile insults me, so, while my page is set for anyone to read, … Continue reading Troll-Feeding and You

Trump Refuses to Yield

by baldilocks Whatever one thinks of President Trump, he doesn't seem dismayed or chagrined about the flipping of the House to the Democrats or about the dubious and ongoing efforts by Democrat Party in Florida, Georgia and Arizona to change the outcomes of political races lost by Democrat candidates. He keeps on doing what he … Continue reading Trump Refuses to Yield

Not Your Maker’s Mark

by baldilocks I like how this story reads -- as if we haven't read it before. You walk into a grocery store and pick up eggs. No smartphone? No problem. You swipe your hand across a reader, and the amount is deducted from your bank account. If that sounds far-fetched, you obviously haven’t been to … Continue reading Not Your Maker’s Mark

Three More Days

by baldilocks The great Walter E. Williams reminds us of how our system of government works -- or, at least, how it's supposed to work. Democrats are hoping the coming election will give them a majority in the House of Representatives. Republicans and much of our nation dread that prospect. My question is: What would … Continue reading Three More Days

God Was Right

Again by baldilocks The tide is turning in the "Believe Her" Wars. John Doe and Jane Roe met at a fraternity party. The two, both referred to with common legal pseudonyms, danced and drank. Then they went upstairs to John's room, where they had sex. Two days later, Jane filed a sexual misconduct charge against John, … Continue reading God Was Right

Beset But Not Bowed

by baldilocks Yesterday was weird. Today is even weirder and much more horrifying. A fake bomber and a real mass shooter; the former, a huge Trump fan, the latter, rabidly anti-Trump and a hater of Jews. The fake bomber neither killed nor injured, intentionally, it seems. The mass shooter has killed 11 people -- so … Continue reading Beset But Not Bowed

Who Started This Caravan?

by baldilocks Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves. -- Eric Hoffer From Canada Free Press: To see that the 5 to 7 thousand ‘migrants’ aren’t coming to America for a better life only requires doing the math of the caravan,  including its logistics and supplies. It’s a long 1,845 … Continue reading Who Started This Caravan?

That Time When Capitalism Beat Racism’s Butt

R.I.P. Sears by baldilocks A great epitaph for an old friend. Monday’s announcement that Sears would file for bankruptcy and close 142 stores came as little surprise to anyone who has followed the retail giant’s collapse in recent years. Still, the news inspired a wave of nostalgia for a company that sold an ideal of … Continue reading That Time When Capitalism Beat Racism’s Butt

Gates Dreams of an African-less Africa

by baldilocks Every now and then, the Left tells you what its ultimate goal is. I've said for some time that Leftism's success requires the earth's rapid depopulation and that nearly all the Left's advocacy is geared toward that end: radical feminism -- which tends to alienate men and women from each other; homosexual and … Continue reading Gates Dreams of an African-less Africa

Hysterical Females Are Deadly

by baldilocks Chicks on the Right blog documents one of the most pathetic public displays within memory. As new Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being sworn into the Supreme Court, there were protesters outside, pounding on the Supreme Court doors. MSM media covered that they were pounding on the doors. But they didn’t actually cover how … Continue reading Hysterical Females Are Deadly

Resistance and Futility

by baldilocks For fans of the Star Trek franchise, the Borg collective was one of the most terrifying villains: a machine collective that forcibly assimilated individuals and civilizations with the goal of achieving perfection -- with perfection being the full integration of all knowledge, culture, etc., everything that is contained within individuals and within singular … Continue reading Resistance and Futility
