Thoughts On a Sunday

It seems the whole nation is focused on the upcoming solar eclipse, with some sections of ther country being inundated with eclipse tourists who want to experience totality.

While we will only see a partial eclipse here in New Hampshire, there are still plenty of people who will take time to watch it as it progresses.

Frankly, this kind of news is far more refreshing than the garbage we've been hearing from the MSM over the past 10 years or so.


Jerry Lewis has died at the age of 91.

He was always a part of my childhood, between his movies, TV appearances, and the Muscular Dystrophy telethon he hosted every Labor Day weekend.

Yet another part of my childhood and teen years has vanished.


So, violence committed by the far Left cannon fodder like Antifa is okay? So says the New York Times.

As Glenn Reynolds writes:

The press is happy to have people hurt, so long as it’s the right people. Remember this when they start their “have you no decency?” routine.



If this isn't a sign of the Apocalypse, it comes pretty damned close.

A new bill in the California legislature would imprison health care workers for using the incorrect pronouns for patients.

If it becomes law I expect it would be struck down, even by the Ninth Circus Court.

This is how far California has decayed. The lunatics are running state government.

I think from this point on, anyone leaving California for greener pastures should be screened for mental health. We don't need this kind of lunacy spreading any farther than it already has.


“We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”

While the above is an allusion to a classic phrase from the days of the Vietnam War, it still applies. The ctrl-left seem to have no problems using violence to get their way. Of course one has to wonder what will happen if they escalate the violence and the rest of us decide we're not going to take it anymore. I expect they'll need “a large supply of body bags”. (Yet another classical reference.)


What's really the reason more girls aren't drawn to STEM fields of study?

Could it be because men prefer working with things while women prefer working with people?

Some studies cited in the post linked to above seem to suggest that might indeed be the case and not gender bias, intentional or otherwise.


Colin Kaepernick is the gift that keeps on giving, in this case his disrespect for the national anthem has helped fuel an 8% drop in NFL game TV viewership. That the NFL got involved in politics by taking a position in opposition to a bill in Georgia that would protect religious liberty certainly didn't help things either.

Roger Goodell has got to go. He should have suspended Kaepernick. He should have kept out of politics, particularly the politics within the Bible Belt. He was a wuss when it came to Inflategate.

If the NFL wants to see its fans returning it should fire Goodell. That will show the fans that the NFL is serious about getting back to the business of football.


Daniel Greefield describes how civilizations fall. That he's seeing the evidence of moral decay here in the West, something that usually leads to civilizations falling, should worry everyone.

The ctrl-left and their cannon fodder – the college student robots and so-called 'Antifa' stormtroopers – are perfect examples of those working very hard to destroy the moral fabric of our civilization. Once that moral fabric is gone, the new barbarians will take over and everything that was once good will disappear. Western Civilization will fall. Anarchy will reign. We will enter a new Dark Age.


And that's the abbreviated news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where we're all getting ready for an Eclipse Party, some schools are opening, and where summer is passing by all too quickly.
