Insanity in an Otherwise Mad World

From the looks of it, today is going to be a scorcher. It’s not even noon and one of my many thermometers is reading 91 degrees. It’s a good day to stay inside and contemplate what appears to be the news. It ain’t pretty.

London is reeling from a van “attack” on the London bridge, as if vans can pull this off all by themselves. Then, as if this weren’t enough, the guys in the van drove to a market and began to stab people indiscriminately. Theresa May, Britain’s brain dead PM, then blamed the interwebtubes for the attacks.  Some one, some where else, as I recall, then blamed the attacks on global warming and Trump for pulling out of a treaty that hasn’t been ratified and commits the United States to sending billions of dollars ’round the world to, well, I’m not sure what all that money will do to change the climate except to make people like Al Gore filthy rich. What? People from near the equator are going on a rampage because summer is coming?

Then there are the students at Evergreen State College who are demanding a whites leave campus and are particularly pissed at one professor who has called these mental midget students on their incoherent twaddle. These SJWs are puking out the left’s usual talking points, you know, white privilege, hostility towards people who identify as transsexual, gender confused, sheep loving, xi/xe of mostly brown hued patches on their legs, the ugly but constant presence of the patriarchy, and we’re not sure exactly what Rachael Maddow is, but we believe every word she utters rhetoric that passes as thoughtful debate these days. Where’s my copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking when I need it? I need mushrooms in cream sauce, my stomach is aching.

I’ve always suspected my species was capable of some pretty crazy stuff, you know, looking back on our history, but this is right up there with the inquisition. We don’t like the way you think because it threatens all the “progress” we have made, so now it’s time to crack down on all of you heathens out there in flyover country, and Hell, even on those we thought were on our side, TRAITORS! Any one else care to disagree?

There’s more, but I’m not sure my stomach can take it. We seem to have steered the ship of Man into the Bermuda triangle where compasses don’t work and shoes come in eighth sizes. I’d like the Opera Pumps in a 9 7/8 please. Here, in “the Triangle,” up is down, grass is blue, the sky is green and Archie Bunker agrees with everything Michael Stivic has to say. Eric has his foot up Red’s ass and can it be true? Is it even possible in this upside down world?  Kathy Griffin actually said something funny? Oh Lordy, Lordy, pass the Tums.

The only thing I can think to do is to wander out to the garden (later, when it’s cooler) and pull some weeds. In the garden, at least, I can actually do something about those pesky, unwelcome thistles in the salad bowl.

 

 

Sovereignty

Let’s talk about sovereignty. God created Man and gave him dominion over earth and all its creatures. Now, maybe you don’t believe that, but you must admit Man has certainly taken over much of the earth. That is not to say Nature doesn’t have the last word every now and again. God gave Man a grant of sovereignty over matters Earth. Since there is no such thing as the “collective” without individuals to comprise it, that means God gave each one of us a grant of sovereignty in matters Earth. The only terms for this are do not harm your fellow Man or his property. Otherwise, live your lives. Continue reading “Sovereignty”

Dandelions

Dandelions, lots and lots of dandelions. This may be the worst year for them I’ve seen. Our large yard looks like an industrial cotton candy spill. A forest of dandelions. Of course, on the other side of the fence is a horse pasture smothered in dandelions.

The neighbor across the road is fond of dumping chemicals on his very large lawn. He thinks dandelions are little lawn demons in need of an exorcism. But his holy water is poison. It’s poison to us and to our animals. He doesn’t care. The label says it’s safe. They wouldn’t sell us something that wasn’t safe, would they?

So I don’t use chemicals to eradicate the invaders. I just wait them out. They will show their little yellow flowers which turn to white balls of fluff and then retreat back into the lawn. Three weeks tops. But in those three weeks lies madness among men of pure lawn. They will go to any length, resort to all manner of machination and hover over a cauldron of witches brew, stirring as directed, to rid their lawn of the evil dandelion. It’s an obsession of wasted time and effort. As someone once said to me, “if that stuff actually worked, why are there still dandelions?”

‘Nuff said.

Bribed By Free Stuff

I have been ruminating for the last few weeks. Gathering information and running it through my little pea brain trying to make sense of it all. I keep pounding away at the the same themes trying to provide my readers with a little insight into why things seem so weird. But, alas and alack, no one is reading anyway or those that are, all 2 of you, seem to think I’m nuts, so I’ll just say a few words for myself. Continue reading “Bribed By Free Stuff”

Our Proper Standing

I have puked out a lot of words describing how men of power have enslaved humanity. You know, the machinations by which they have convinced us that we are something that we are not. Words like “citizen,” “person,” “driver,” “operator,” republican, democrat, voter, etc. etc. have all been employed to divert our attention away from who and what we are: living souls created by God. It’s been said that real magic is the clever use of words to deceive. Words that lead us into a direction that we would not have chosen for ourselves. We have all, regardless of culture, nationality,or any other category, been given a narrative that directs our focus away from that simple truth and toward something that is false. Continue reading “Our Proper Standing”

Winter to Spring, Or Not

Spring is on its way in the Rockies. For the next few weeks it will snow, then warm, then snow, then blow, a lot of blowing. It’s a time of weather turmoil as Winter gives way to Spring. When it comes to weather, we know it will eventually change. I not so sure about the affairs of Men. We do the same dance over and over again. We have times of peace and then some crazy guy decides he wants to rule the world and the next thing you know, it’s chaos time again. Why is it we are always caught off guard when events turn ugly? I repeat, it’s the same ole same ole over and over again. Continue reading “Winter to Spring, Or Not”

The Madness of Globalism

Give me more! Give me more, HA HA HA HA! No wait, Give me more AND let’s bomb some more countries so the world is safe for democracy! Let’s throw people in jail for using a plant! Let’s demand papers from everyone so we can be safe. That folks, is the left right paradigm at work. The left as a group is hopelessly stupid and arrogant, the right is hopelessly arrogant and stupid.

We are all marching to the tune of the owners. They want all this turmoil. They want everyone dependent on government for everything. So you thought you were paying for retirement insurance when you contributed to Social Security? HA! joke’s on you! You were paying a tax on your labor that was then used by your trustworthy representatives to fund more programs designed to make you dependent. There is no SS trust fund, it doesn’t exist. Too bad. Maybe you’ll get some of that back, maybe not, HA! Continue reading “The Madness of Globalism”
