Al Gore has warned us that "once in a thousand year events are occurring more frequently" and that holds true for weather as it does for everything else. Since I have a daughter living in Charleston, SC and many old friends in the Palmetto State I have been following the deluge that drowned the low country over the weekend with great interest. We were discussing the flooding over dinner tonight when grandmother said it reminded her of the Great Ohio River flood of 1937. Oh yeah, 1 million people washed out of their homes and hundreds of millions of dollars (something like $10 Billion in todays money) in damages. She lived in a railroad car for a few months while they repaired her parents home in the Kentucky town where she lived. So I guess Al Gore is... right? Who the hell knows, floods happen with or without the internal combustion engine and a modern energy grid - if anything we handle them better today than we did yesterday.

The Fear
Of course, things could have been much worse for the South Carolinians had Hurricane Joaquin actually made landfall as a CAT 4 apocalypse the way it was supposed to. But it didn't, so continues the long string of none events that have shaken the eastern seaboard to its foundation for nothing. The hurricanes happen, to be sure, but they don't make landfall, so they really don't happen in any meaningful "climate change" kind of way - "if a tree falls in the woods..." - meaning that while they churn out in the Atlantic no one can "politicize" them. Thank God!

The Mercy
And I do thank god for his mercy, for it looked to all the world that Joaquin was headed for our Nation's Capital to drown the rats and topple monuments. Had it happened I certainly would have been one of the first to claim divine wrath and righteous judgment on the wicked. But Gods love is infinite and I hope the puny people pushing paper in the District of Colombia consider that reality in their daily grind - writing regulations and scolding We the People with their sanctimonious preaching. The Lord could wipe their city off the face of the earth with a small (by his measure) storm, but at the last minute he sheathed His terrible sword and lifted the hand of fate. Just another day in a world we humans can barely understand and rarely appreciate.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
