[ Newest ]Masks? Naaah.

Many of us have wondered why the Commissar and his Regime are so dedicated to the Mask and Jab, a chance comment I read this morning cleared the fog, and gave me a solution. If you title the mask properly it all falls in line. No longer shall I call the piece of fabric that promotes lung problems, infections and bad breath a “mask” now it is the “FACE BURKA.”
Tammy Wynette Rides Again

History does in fact repeat itself, no surprise, but here in America, it is once again the “elites” of New England and the Northeast dictating to the country, the Cesspool City on the Potomac is naught but New England South, more Ivy league elitists there than in Boston. It has been that way since George Washington tasked John Adams of Massachusetts to form the administrative wing of the government, then in NYC. Adams filled the cabinet and government with New Englanders and Northeasters, and they have never left.
The Face of Fascism

Every time you think you have heard it all, the Commissar and his regime show you another face of Fascism, show another step in their plan to destroy the American Republic.

Today is John Denver’s birthday, I wrote this a few days after his untimely death, I was at a conference in Colorado Springs, with the Rocky Mountains he so loved framed in my window, and a “Wildlife Concert” on the TV. I will return to politics and events tomorrow, thanks for humoring a man and his memories.

I know that many folks are just reveling in the absence of the “Terrible Tweets” of President Trump, that were so offensive, that for them it is worth the long litany of personal decisions by Joe Biden that have already caused irreparable harm to these United States

Is the maniacal dedication of the Regime to getting everyone “jabbed” because the next variant of the ChiCom BioWeapon is stuck on one of the ships stuck off the coast. If folks start to get well, will the hoax fall apart?

I was asked an interesting question yesterday, “Do the Democrats know there are elections coming?” My first attempt at a glib rejoinder, was “Nah, they have already started their ‘cheat’ machine;”

I found John Tobin was banned on Facebook for a month, I thought that after five years of posting daily, a month off would be welcome, giving me an extra hour or three to enjoy retirement, then I realized that that would be surrender, that would be quitting, so here I go again, so look for Mike Force, send him a Friend request, it is the one with University of Pineland below the name.

One of my few regrets about migrating south at seventeen for college, is my children never got to go into the ethnic "neighborhoods" of Conshohocken, PA. There were some great neighborhoods, though in the late 40s and early 50s they were starting to breakup. My Grandfather Harry Thwaites, a man proud of his Irish ancestors but an American, no hyphen for him, would take me to the various neighborhoods to meet friends at the clubs or halls.
