Too paralyzed to act

There’s an old saying about certain people’s problems, that “it would take a heart of stone not to laugh.” That sprang to mind when I read this account of how many leftist activist groups are too paralyzed to act because their own members are such delicate snowflakes that they’re preventing people from concentrating on accomplishing their mission by claiming to be triggered over countless grievances and focusing only on themselves. I thought that WAS the mission of these groups?

Oh, and Heaven forbid anyone complain about all their distracting whining, because that makes them REALLY triggered!


Mind-boggling stupidity

I’m not a betting man, but if I were, I would definitely bet the farm that none of my readers stayed up late last night to watch AOC on the Steven Colbert show. Fortunately, to coin a phrase, Nick Arama watched it so you won’t have to, and summarized the many blasts of mind-boggling stupidity spewing from both sides of that conversation like lawn sprinklers.

Woody Williams RIP

I am sad to have to report the passing of a genuine American hero, The last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient, Hershel “Woody” Williams, died this morning at 98. All of us here extend our prayers and sympathies to his two daughters and their families, and our gratitude to this remarkable Marine who was honored for his outstanding heroism in the Battle of Iwo Jima. You can read more about him here:

Better yet, click on this link to see the salute we produced to him and fellow Marine Charles “Bert” Mulligan on “Huckabee” and the interview that I was honored to have with Hershel “Woody” Williams.

Welcome to the club

NATO is formally inviting Sweden and Finland to join the alliance after Turkey dropped its objection.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/nato-invites-sweden-finland-become-members-wake-russia-ukraine-war

Everyone will now be watching for Vladimir Putin’s reaction. He’s been threatening retaliation if any nations like Finland that border Russia join NATO. That was part of his rationale for invading Ukraine. Will he move Russian troops and equipment to the border with Finland? And does he have any to spare at this point? More details at the link.


Risk

Thanks to the Biden Administration destroying border security, law enforcement is dealing with a flood of deadly fentanyl coming into the US. But you can’t put all the blame on idiotic leftist policies from Washington. You can also put it on idiotic leftist policies in certain states like California, where two suspects who were caught with 150,000 fentanyl pills in their vehicle were ordered released on their own recognizance just 18 hours later.

https://www.westernjournal.com/california-sheriff-infuriated-suspects-department-arrested-150000-fentanyl-pills-promptly-released/

Apparently, they were given a “risk assessment” and found not to pose enough of a risk to the public to hold them. Want to hear about “risk?” According to a Fox News report, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, and has become the leading cause of death for Americans age 18 to 45, killing more people in that group between 2020 and 2021 than COVID-19, car accidents and suicide. Is that not risky enough to hold them in jail, even for California prosecutors?

Ruined

Anyone who had “Fourth of July fireworks shows” in a betting pool on what great thing about America the Biden Administration will ruin next can collect his money now.

Not everyone is happy at Disney

It’s good to know that not all Disney employees are happy with the leftward, “woke” drift of the company. In fact, it’s likely the board is yielding to the demands of a small minority running roughshod over the majority. Many have complained anonymously for fear of losing their jobs, but one Disney employee is bravely speaking out publicly, and in a big way.

https://pjmedia.com/culture/chris-queen/2022/06/28/disney-cast-member-speaks-out-publicly-about-the-companys-woke-direction-n1608898

Jose Castillo is a resort duty manager at Walt Disney World. He believes that “We need to let kids be kids,” and “Our children should not be subjected to indoctrination by special interest groups.” He also told the New York Post that Disney’s decision to pay for abortions for employees is just the latest political stance that will alienate customers and a breach of fiduciary duty to stockholders. He also said, “We must protect and defend those that cannot yet fight for themselves.”

But isn’t he risking losing his job? Yes, but he has his eye on another one. He’s one of six candidates for Congress in the August 23rd GOP primary. His campaign site reads, “I’m not afraid of losing my job. I’m afraid of losing my country.”

He sounds like the kind of stand-up, moral, everyday hero that Disney used to make movies about, back before they went into the LGBTQ+ message service business.


Gas Sale

Here’s a term I’ll bet you haven’t heard in a long time: “Gas sale!”

https://www.westernjournal.com/major-gas-station-chain-announces-huge-sale-gas-effective-immediately/

Kudos to this convenience store chain for giving drivers a break this Fourth of July. Let’s hope it sparks the return of another term we haven’t heard in years: “Gas price war!”


I JUST WANTED TO SAY:

    Mike
    we want to thank Nick Arama for suffering through the AOC crap, so we didn't have to - he certainly earned his vacation!
    Regarding Swede and Finland - they should hurry through the NATO membership so fast that Putin's asleep while it happens - then tell him, and dare him to lift a finger; it will simply show him how he can commit political suicide - via his own countrymen.
    Gas Sale ???
    Newsome, getting ready for the CA economy hit, signed the 3 cent INCREASE in CA gas tax (51 cents now), effective July 1.

    Are people that voted for biden and harris alive and are they clear minded as Joe and harris? Can a clear minded person understand or believe the two, the policies biden has put in and the work ethic harris has put in on the border? Is the economy really getting better? If one can believe biden has an American Can Do philosophy WHY is biden going to foreign countries to increase oil production when oil is in the United States and American workers are at the ready to get it into our refineries, at record pace, the country and world is in desperate need today. Clear minded people would like an answer Not the response of a cloudy unstable mind like biden has, his answers are AGG Umm Aue #! ?* and so ha ha well roe v wade hehe answers that don't answer the question, when his answer should be I don't know what I am doing I am destroying the country a day at a time and making the world a miserable place. Yes biden is stupid but his best trait is he is EVIL. Ask the corpses in the Trailer on the Southern border or maybe the relatives of the dead migrants smuggling their way into the United States either side of the border corrupt and criminal the Biden only way to do business. Taking notes harris your next.

    Do you know of a cell phone company that is good?
    I have been with TMobil for 20 yrs.
    Today I went to the TMobil store. First I was invited to sit on a sofa with a BIG young man. The problem being he kept time with the music being played in the store. This shook me too. We were using a small serving try like table to look and
    work on my tablet
    There were several screens displaying Gay Pride.
    The young man helping me was downloading agreements and agreeing for me. I called him on agreeing on the agreements that said I had read them and agreed to their terms and conditions.
    I have a couple of Yahoo accounts. One was hacked after TMobil was hacked. I have yet to get it straightened out. I have another Yahoo account. Each time I check im there is a message asking me to stay signed in. I say NO.
    Then Yahoo tries to get me to sign their terms and conditions. The terms spell out they can KEEP ALL OF MY INFO.
    I have written business contracts. There contracts say they get to do what they want. If I try and sue them all of the terms and conditions are in their favor.
    It is It is harassment.
    So do you know of a cell phone company and an internet company?
    Regards,
    Evelyn Clark

    I saw this hilarious quote on a T-shirt ad recently:
    "Instead of Build Back Better, how about just Put it Back the Way You Found It."
