Flag Day

Our form of government does not enter into rivalry with the institutions of others. Our government does not copy our neighbors’, but is an example to them. It is true that we are called a democracy, for the administration is in the hands of the many and not of the few. But while there exists …

516 Dead

Just saying. 312 in Combat. Not that I’m bitter, I’m not even Canadian. I find it both ironic and ignorant. Sixty Six minutes if you can stand the strain and I only present the entirety so you can note the historical misconceptions. If you desire a shorter and more humorous digest I suggest Trevor Noah. …

Elevator Pitches Are Not Reality

Sigh. If you’re not in the biz which is show you may not know that your elevator pitch is the five minute sales presentation you make to the mover and shaker who can greenlight the project to which you’ve devoted your life of Mary Sue fandom who happens to be momentarily trapped in a small …

Permanent Interests

As Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, said in 1848- “We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.” It is hard for me therefore to ethically condemn a nation for acting in those interests despite them being …

Look. Melania is sick.

I’ve been reading a lot of garbage about why Melania is out of the spotlight recently, ranging from Pod Person Conspiracy Theories to speculation that she’s being held in a 50 Shades of Gray sex dungeon in the old White House Bowling Alley. The truth is likely more mundane and tragic than that. She’s probably …

Reality Bias

Samantha Bee is angry that Trump’s DHS is snatching babies from their mothers and losing them. Roseanne Barr is angry that Valerie Jarett is Black. See the difference? Obama was a horrible President. Speaking of Roseanne. Gotta watch out for that Ambien. Back to stealing babies Surrey With The Fringe On Top War On Music

European Union Dominos

Even the biggest United States of Europe proponent has to admit that the only people who are happy with the current direction in Brussels are German Bankers. Merkel barely survived re-election due to German popular disdain for EU Immigration policy (which I happen to support mind you except I don’t think it goes far enough). …
