Thoughts On A Sunday

Last week I had posted that the local ice fishing derby was likely to be canceled due to the lack of safe ice, but the derby Powers-That-Be decided to go for it and it seems their gamble paid off. While there are a number of places on the big lake where it would be suicidal to go out on the ice, there are a number of coves and bays where the ice is thick enough to support people and bob houses. However, cars and trucks won't fare well so no one has been seen out on the ice with either.

On top of that, the temperatures today are expected be in the 50's, meaning the ice will be melting even as the derby continues.


Hillary won the South Carolina Democrat primary by a huge margin. No real surprise there.

It will be interesting to see how they fare during Super Tuesday.


From the mouths of babes comes the answers we seek, in this case from 16-year old British teen Lexie Hill, who appears to have the answer to the UK's (and perhaps the US's) immigration problem.

I hear the cri de coeur from the SJW's, yet shake my head in disgust and amazement when one compares what the SJW's are 'fighting' compared to what took place during the Civil Rights movement in the 50's and 60's.

I am not the only one to have commented on this, but it seems the SJW's have to make stuff up in order to justify their existence, be it the “rape crisis” or the “inherent racism in our society” or the way overblown “LGBTQ” issues. What's worse is that many of the solutions SJW's propose go in direct opposition of what the people involved in the Civil Rights movement paid for in blood and tears.

Such are the wages of willful ignorance and leftist indoctrination in our education system.

From my observations, the very SJW's looking for “social justice” (whatever that is), tend to be the most intolerant, misinformed, closeminded, and racist people in the room. Then again, when does reality or truth mean anything to these idiots?


At least one Hollywood Social Justice Warrior is finding out that actions have consequences, that being Patricia Arquette. According to Variety, her speaking out about faux gender equality has cost her more than one job. But fear not, she's not suffering as her net worth is still in the double digit millions.

Her present role on CSI: Cyber where she plays the head of the FBI's Cyber division, has run afoul of reality where her character repeated the long discredited 'statistic' about 1 in 4 women on college campuses being sexually assaulted. That the character is in the FBI should have meant she should have known that statistic is bogus, but stated it as if it were gospel. It's one reason I stopped watching the show – embedded SJW propaganda.

One thing that turns me off more than anything else when it comes to entertainment is being preached to by people who are in no way wise and far less informed than I. In regards to Ms. Arquette, I blame that on the isolated bubble that is Hollywood, a place known for make believe and self-congratulatory “people in the know” who don't really know anything and are more than willing to prove it at every opportunity.

Ain't this the truth!

A liberal utopia can't have a reminder of their failed policies.

That certainly explains why San Francisco is moving to remove a tent city under a highway overpass housing numerous homeless denizens. What did the city think would happen when they made it so attractive for homeless people to come to their city? And then one of the tech startup crowd complained about having to “see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people” on his way to work.

So rather than actually solving a problem they helped create, they'll merely hide it away...just like socialist always do.


I decided to pass on the Oscars tonight with the exception of Chris Rock's opening monologue. It was enough for me as I didn't need to hear the bleeding heart liberal politically correct dreck from the mouths of the Hollywood ignorati.


It amazes me how many people can't tell the difference between capitalism and crony capitalism. About the only thing they have in common is the word 'capitalism'. Beyond that they're nothing alike. In cause you're one of those still confused about crony capitalism, here's a little primer courtesy of Prager University.

There, does that explain it good enough for you?


And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where winter weather cannot seem to make up its mind, the warm weather is welcome, and where we eagerly await spring.
