Hit-And-Run Leftism: A Response to [Redacted]

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Brunette here again. Guess I’m in an uncharacteristically chatty mood lately . . . not to worry, Vin will be back. And I’ll revert to my usual quieter self sooner or later. 😉

Trump: Love The Man, or Loathe Him? (Or, The Art of The Real Deal)

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

(Brunette again.) The fog of war — largely an information war — will eventually clear. We’ve been in the thick of it for some time now. The long dominant left-leaning media has everyone’s heads spinning with more Russia hysteria, spurious rumors based on anonymous sources, breathless speculations about who’s in or out (or at each […]

Trump: Touchstone, or Rorschach Test?

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

(Brunette here.) I’ll admit, initially I wasn’t a big Trump fan. I didn’t take serious interest in the Donald until after the Wikileaks Podesta emails (and Pizzagate/Pedogate) had broken. I’d never had much reason to think about the man, pay attention to him, take him seriously. But I’d always disliked the Clintons, and after watching […]

Kinsey; Crowley; Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll; MK Ultra, and . . . Pedogate?

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Are you old enough to remember when Alfred Kinsey‘s 1948 and 1953 reports on human sexuality came out? I’m not, although I do recall as a kid growing up in the ’60s that those reports were still stirring controversy. Never paid much attention until lately, when I stumbled across a Youtube documentary about […]

Have yourself a merry critter Christmas . . . :-)

Saturday, December 24th, 2016

For several years now, we’ve opted for live trees that we could plant in the spring . . . here’s our little Xena standing guard, after I finished decorating. Had to be careful not to use glass ornaments or other breakables, thanks to our furry little helpers. 😉

Pizzagate: Too evil to be true?

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

No one wants Pizzagate to be true. (Brunette here.) When something’s “too good to be true,” of course, it usually is . . . but what about something that seems too evil — too horrific, disturbing — to be true?

Never watch the TV — haunting Alan Watts wisdom

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Brunette here. Been quiet for a while, have had a lot on my mind lately . . . both to do with this ongoing train wreck of an election, and other more mundane matters. Vin and I have not had a TV for years (I don’t want one in the house, period.) He doesn’t seem […]

Links, for a change . . . (9/06/16)

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

(Brunette here. I’ve been thinking about doing occasional just-links posts — with minimal commentary — for some time, and finally decided to try it. You can encourage or discourage us by clicking away, and/or commenting below.) LEFT-BEHIND LIBERTARIANS

The Right to Bare Arms (Knees Too!)

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Much ado about burkini bans in recent days. On one hand, that sounds a bit silly — women and men should be able to wear what they want, and be comfortable — on the other hand, there are good reasons to oppose burkinis on western beaches and at public pools. Here’s the best commentary I’ve […]

Voices of Compassion, Freedom of Faith

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Brunette here (Trigger warning may apply. Or not. Reader discretion advised.) 😉 Trying to wrap my head around the subject of Islam, and what its increasing presence means to the West, has been daunting. Clearly Muslims are humans first and foremost, and deserve to be seen as individuals like anyone else. It would be a […]
