Macaron is softer then Le Pen

The French know a thing or two about cooking. Their cuisine is first tier and there's nothing better than walking into a Parisian pastry shop and sampling the goods. I think the government subsidizes these places to keep the prices low and scarfing them down with a strong espresso or creamy cafe latte is an epicurean dream come true. And if you have to put up with French people to experience it then so what, it's worth the aggravation because, to the best of my knowledge, they're the only people on earth capable of creating a proper macaron and so you really don't have a choice in the matter. French voters face the same existential conundrum in their presidential elections - to enjoy the finer things in life (which they do) they have to put up with themselves. And so today the Macaron won in a landslide over the Pen which was a foregone conclusion once the either/or choice was put on the table. Who in France would pick up the pen and start working when the delectable cream filled meringue sat on the plate just begging to be eaten. It turns out that 1/3 of the French citizens actually chose Le Pen which is an astonishingly high number based on my empirical study of these fine people and their politics - I would have predicted a 20% ceiling for the girl - and I'm heartened to learn that there are so many great Frenchmen in country. This is exciting news - France is slowly coming back to national greatness, but for the next 5 years these noble souls will be eating fluff.

Americans have trouble understanding the French elections but it's just a matter of poor translation. We take a delicate pastry and turn it into a lump of coconut. How could we have any idea what the French might do with their elections and government. Vive la France - the macaron will not kill you.

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

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

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
