Thoughts On A Sunday

It was a long weekend for me, between taking Friday off to deal with the cord wood delivered to The Manse that morning (it took all day to get it moved and stacked away and part of Saturday to clean up the detritus left behind), prepping the Official Weekend Pundit Lake Winnipesaukee Runabout (aka The Boat) for winterizing, and getting ready to take delivery of a new refrigerator to replace the lightning damaged fridge that has recently stopped keeping food on the refrigerator side cold in a reliable manner (the freezer still works except for the icemaker, which stopped working the day of the lightning strike two summers ago).

The firewood is all stacked inside the garage and ready for use in the Official Weekend Pundit Woodstove once it's needed. The Boat will be hauled down to one of the local boat shops to be winterized and shrink-wrapped now that I have emptied out all of the gear and accessories from their storage lockers. The old fridge was emptied of all of the food and stored in coolers just prior the the new one being delivered.

Then there were my regular weekend chores to attend to as well.

And so it goes here in central New Hampshire.


I still find it amazing that many leading Democrats can't understand why Obamacare is imploding at an accelerating rate.

If they had actually paid attention to congressional Republican's warnings, they never would have voted for such a obviously flawed (and doomed) P. O. S. legislation. A large majority of the American people certainly understood what a crap sandwich Obamacare was, didn't like it then and like it even less now. But our 'betters' knew better and it passed through a legislative sleight of hand. But it turns out our 'betters' didn't know better and have helped dismantle one of the best health care systems in the world all in the name of 'fairness'. (Whenever I hear Democrats use that term, I know to hold on to my wallet because it means they want to take even more money from me and everyone else.)


You know it's gone too far when know-nothing leftist college students say “science is racist”.

As best as I've been able to determine, science knows no race, color, creed, or political affiliation...and I'm not talking about soft sciences like Political Science, Sociology, or any field of study ending in the word “Studies”. No matter what, the speed of light is the same as is Avogadro's Number and Planck's Constant and pi and a whole host of other scientific concepts and discoveries, race not withstanding.

These kids have got to get an effin' clue.


You know it's even worse when an institution of higher learning, the University of Florida in this instance, is offering counseling to those poor fragile snowflakes because someone's Halloween costume might cause them some kind of discomfort or might offend them.

Here's a clue, U of Florida administrators: everything offends them, including you. If you're going to offer them counseling, I suggest you move them to a different institution, preferable one where they can get the psychological help they so desperately need in order to become mature functioning adults and not the perpetual spoiled children they are.


The New England Patriots played the Cincinnati Bengals in Foxborough today, beating them 35-17. It was Tom Brady's first home game after his 4 game suspension.


There is one issue where I do agree wholeheartedly with Hillary Clinton, that being her disdain for extremist environmentalists who demand we keep all of our natural resources, specifically oil, natural gas, and coal in the ground.

I find that many of them are willing to talk the talk, but not walk the walk. I also find they have no real grasp on reality – specifically things like energy and the environment – and make all kinds of demands that are in no way realistic or doable, at least not without plunging most of the world into abject poverty. Then again, they really don't care because they feel they shouldn't have to make the sacrifice because, after all, they are our betters and the deserve to live in the 21st century and not the 18th.

What a bunch of hypocrites.


Members of the Party Of Tolerance showed just how tolerant they are of opposing points of view by firebombing a GOP headquarters in North Carolina.

A swastika and “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building.

Gee, it sounds like the miscreants did not understand that significance of Kristallnacht, using the same tactics the Nazis used in Germany back in 1938. So who are the real Nazis here?


David Starr has some nice fall foliage pictures he took up in Franconia Notch in northern New Hampshire. Swing by a and take a look.


And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where summer temps are returning for a few days, the gear has been emptied from my boat, and where I've gotten my winter firewood all stacked away.
