I wonder why drag queens never want to read to people in old age homes?

Whistle-blower multiplier over $524,000 as of this morning. Way to go! Hopefully it gets picked up and goes over the top. 🥰

I'm just loving Montana and Nebraska right now! I have already decided to move to Montana because Florida is too hot - I am always hot.

This is totally random, but it's on my mind because Memorial Day is coming up. It infuriates me that illegal, invading aliens are in 5 star hotels and some of our veterans are still on the streets. Disgusting!

No society that allows the "gender affirming" mutilation of children is a moral society. If someone came to you and told you he or she identified as a one-legged pirate, you would never cut their leg off. The doctors that do this are knowingly violating their Hippocratic oath, and they will answer for this evil in another life.

The most important thing to take away from DeSantis twitter announcement is that it bypassed msm/legacy media. Good.

Just now had time to read yesterday’s post. Wow.

Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens,

Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;

Your judgments are like a great deep.

O Lord, You preserve man and beast.

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!

And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;

And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.

For with You is the fountain of life;

In Your light we see light.

O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You,

And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.

Let not the foot of pride come upon me,

And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.

— Psalm 36:5-11 NASB1995

C&C Multipliers remind me of a proposal some years ago: the gist was that whenever the government tries to pick on the little guy, rich conservatives should swoop in and fund his legal challenge or defense. The person who came up with this called it the "Madison Fund" (as in James Madison), although it turns out that name's already taken by an investment firm). The C&C Multipliers basically do the same thing, but with lots of small donations instead of a few rich people.

Not that a few rich people swooping in wouldn't be helpful too...

“Landscapers busy maintaining and beautifying the plant life somehow chopped right through our internet cable late yesterday...” Are you sure it wasn’t the FBI doing the maintaining and beautifying?

As we meander further down the “post-covid” path in the rose garden even the most ardent fence sitters take not.

This heard recently: “There really DO seem to be a lot of people dying all of a sudden”

....hunnie dont get me started ...

Convince me that the fine people of Nebraska DULY elected that screeching meemie to represent them? On the other hand, Rep. Mitchell from Montana seems to represent what most Americans stand for. Ban the machines! Paper ballots. Same day voting. Voter ID. No mail in voting.

"Landscapers busy maintaining and beautifying the plant life somehow chopped right through our internet cable late yesterday, so I’m working valiantly with something approaching dial-up speeds using my cell phone as a hotspot."

Were the landscapers clean-cut, fit, mostly white guys wearing Ray-Bans? (Big E beat me to it).

"Yes, we get that she “needs” trans people — but for WHAT?"

That video was surreal. I suffer from occasional PTSD-related insomnia and my troubled psyche managed to engage in a playful bit of self-torture by looping this video while I was in a semi-somnolent state.

I haven't gone to a restaurant since 2020, and am happier, healthier, and a better chef for it.

Regarding Griffin - there's no way you can have cancer and not look sick right up to when you mysteriously die. At least no way I'm aware of.

I like DeSantis' message (especially getting rid of Wray!), but I think he would be better off staying in Florida where he can "set the bar" and be an example for turning the country around. And I know none of us is perfect, but when I listen to DeSantis, he seems "preachy" to me--not the conversationalist Trump is (though Trump's random syntax can be maddening too).

For those of you who follow the Highwire show, today Jefferey Jaxen might be talking about Bill Gates’s new concoction “Apeel” that’s being sprayed on our produce, and does not wash off. No transparency, no labeling. I contacted them to see if they have researched it yet and they got back to me saying Jeffrey should be covering it today (2pm EST)

I was at a car dealership yesterday. While waiting for my car to be serviced, I was sitting next to a guy who works for the government and deals with labeling (poultry and meat). I asked him about Apeel and he didn’t know anything about it. He was going to research it. I asked him if he finds anything shady what will he do? He said he would contact Washington DC.

This stuff is potentially being sprayed on everything including organic produce. It’s supposed to preserve the produce, but It’s all being done under the radar.

Also, Did you know that organic farmers are allowed to spray nicotine on organic produce? Sometimes I can smell it on apples.

I love Ron DeSantis! I prefer most of his policies to Trump’s. What he has done for Florida and freedom embody great statesmanship, patriotism, and conservative values.

That said, I wish DeSantis would postpone his presidential aspirations to preserve the Free State of Florida, to show other governors in “red” states how to be real governors with backbone, to avoid dividing the conservative movement, and to prevent wasting precious donations needed for a Republican win against a well-funded Democratic machine.

He’s young! He has time. With a solid track record as a successful governor and national figure, DeSantis could win the 2028 presidential nomination and election by a landslide.

Trump is a flawed candidate, but he inspires conservative voters to do two important things: Donate and Vote. Trump absolutely can beat Joe Biden if he doesn’t also have to mud wrestle people in his own party. (On the other hand, if Democrats have their way, Trump will again be distracted by trumped up charges or in custody, which could strengthen the argument for candidate DeSantis.)

Just my two-cent donation’s worth.

I immediately stopped reading at skoch. Skoch. That's a word i hadn't heard in decades. Which took my mind to smidgen. Then I needed to google the difference between sketch and smidgen to see how short of an article it was going to be. Okay, back to reading.
