Five Instant One Line Time/Greta Thoughts UPDATE Bonus Thought!

If you thought Greta was insufferable before can you imagine how she’ll be now?


This is likely the 1st time in Time’s history that a person who has actually had no impact on the world, nor is likely to, has been chosen as Person of the year.


Presuming she doesn’t know it now, the day she realizes this is all a con will be her 1st chance to actually be worthy of being named person of the year.


Alas I will likely not be alive to interview Greta in thirty years to ask her why we are all still here.


Finally nothing Confirms Impeachment as a bigger Dud than Greta Thunburg being picked by Time as Person of the Year.

UPDATE Bonus Thought:

This is the 2nd time in my life (the 1st being when Obama won the Nobel Prize) that I woke up, saw a news report and thought I was still asleep.

Realities: Voldemort Media Values, Rescorla or Thunberg and Incel dreams Under the Fedora

The fuss about Molly Hemmingway saying aloud on the air what everyone in the room already knows, namely that the so called “Whistleblower”  Eric Ciaramella is a perfect symbol for the culture the left has given us. The inability to speak aloud the truth, particularly truth that everyone knows, is the hallmark of repression. He has become the media’s Voldemort media (he who must not be named).

We have have won the cold war but I’m becoming increasingly convinced that the Communists won the peace.


One of the aspects of the Voldemort media are the choices to be made. The entire Jeffrey Epstein / ABC /CBS coverup and the firing of someone who they thought was an actual whistleblower has become that which must not be talked about. What I find really interesting is the supposed motive:

ABC was exposed this week for killing a story about Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged pedophile ring, which anchor Amy Robach claimed was due to an upcoming interview the network had with the royal family.

emphasis mine

As a practical matter the amount of stories you would get out of exposing Epstein, particularity in 2016 before the metoo movement and the subsequent number of eyeballs online and ratings on the air that such a story would produce would undoubtedly eclipse the value of an interview with the British Royal Family or even future interview that might be denied the network. I would think that Robach would have been able to make that case with ease.

This tells me that even years later Robach doesn’t see the truth, namely that protecting the friends of the Clinton’s who were expected to be back in the White House trumped everything else in that election year, but to acknowledge that truth is more than some can bear.


Speaking of dealing with truth, stumbled onto James Stewart’s long New Yorker piece from 2002 about Rick Rescorla who died getting folks out of the World Trade Center and re-read it. The final paragraph says a lot:

“What she doesn’t understand is that she knew him for four or five years. She knew a sixty-two-year-old man with cancer. I knew him as a hundred-and-eighty-pound, six-foot-one piece of human machinery that would not quit, that did not know defeat, that would not back off one inch. In the middle of the greatest battle of Vietnam, he was singing to the troops, saying we’re going to rip them a new asshole, when everyone else was worrying about dying. If he had come out of that building and someone died who he hadn’t tried to save, he would have had to commit suicide.
“I’ve tried to tell Susan this, in a way, but she’s not ready yet for the truth. In the next weeks or months, I’ll get her down here, and we’ll take a  walk along the ocean, and I’ll explain these things. You see, for Rick Rescorla, this was a natural death. People like Rick, they don’t die old men. They aren’t destined for that and it isn’t right for them to do so. It just isn’t right, by God, for them to become feeble, old, and helpless sons of bitches. There are certain men born in this world, and they’re supposed to die setting an example for the rest of the weak bastards we’re surrounded with.”

There was a time in our country, a time in my memory where every school boy would know who Rick Rescorla was and dream of being him. Thanks to having a father born in 1921 who served in the pacific I was regularly exposed to men like this and taught to revere them. Not anymore Once or twice a year men like this are spoken of fondly but today our schools and the media which shapes society would condemn Rick Rescorla as a man seething with toxic masculinity and white privilege.

God help us those who do when they need such men again, and they will.


In San Francisco a mural of Greta Thunberg is going up so that all can look upon her stern gaze and repent. At Front Page Magazine Jason Hill a Philosophy professor at DePaul has penned an open letter to this media proclaimed hero:

First, we did not rob you of your childhood or of your dreams. You are the legatee of a magnificent technological civilization which my generation and the one before it and several others preceding it all the way to the Industrial Revolution and the Renaissance, bequeathed to you. That growth-driven, capitalist technological civilization has created the conditions for you to harangue us over our betrayal. It is a civilization that eradicated diseases such as small pox from the word, and that lifted millions out of abject poverty in a universe you think is dying and decaying. It assured you a life expectancy that exceeded that of your ancestors. Most likely by focusing on economic growth which you demonize, and scientific advancement, that civilization will further enhance a robust quality of life and health for your descendants.


Here is a hard truth to ponder, Greta: if the great producers of this world whom you excoriate were to withdraw their productivity, wealth and talents—in short—their minds from the world today, your generation would simply perish. Why? Because as children you have done nothing as yet, with your lives besides being born. This is what we expect of children until such time as they can be producers by learning from their elders. You are understandably social and ecological ballast. You are not yet cognitively advanced to replicate the structures of survival of which you are the beneficiaries.

Greta Thunberg is a useful idiot which is why our cultural betters given the choice of her or Rick Rescorla their hero will always go for the former. Men like Rescorla did not play the idiot for others.


I laughed when I saw this story at the Daily Sun:

Sex robot factory ‘looks like Westworld’ after producing ‘hyper-realistic’ dolls
EXCLUSIVE: Silicone Lovers told Daily Star Online it is using a workshop that mirrors fictional HBO hit Westworld to produce sex robots with advanced human-like technology

The mirth comes from three things that instantly came to mind.

  1. Odds are if you can afford such a robot (as opposed to a lower end one that goes for say 2-10 grand) you’re likely rich enough to be able to attract a real woman. But I’m sure the prices will eventually drop so that every incel can have one.
  2. These will never be “hyper-realistic” until they can say no and enforce that statement.
  3. I don’t care how realistic these things are, until they are self cleaning and self disinfecting you couldn’t pay me enough to try one let alone own one.

Some advice for the ladies, if you discover your date has one of these in his apartment or house, run, this guy is a loser.


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.
