We had hoped to find a smaller place that was move in ready and a lot less expensive than The Manse, but after months of looking at homes that were the right size but way over market price or priced right but needing a lot of work, I realized the only way to find the right fit was to build. In the meantime a new residence was needed and the WP Mom offered her place until a new home was built.
I had hoped to have everything moved out by yesterday, but some things took longer than expected and moving is still not completed. But it’s almost done.
Listening to the LSM, they are licking their chops at the prospect of President Trump’s impeachment. They rate the chance of it happening as 100% and they expect him to be convicted. But there is still little but innuendo, illegally obtained surveillance warrants, conviction over so-called ‘process’ crimes that have nothing to do with the actual investigation about Russian collusion during the 2016 election. But they see it all as a ‘smoking gun’ that will sink Trump.
Where were these LSM motherf**kers during the Obama Administration? He pulled far more illegal and unconstitutional stunts during his 8 years in office, was divisive, racist, uncompromising, willfully ignorant, and arrogant, yet we heard nothing from the MSM. Then again, the MSM has devolved into the propaganda wing of the DNC and facts, evidence, and truth mean nothing if it doesn’t push forth the Progressive narrative.
The InstaProf has published yet another paper that delves into the machinations of the above mentioned DNC and their minions. Titled “Crime Follies: Overcriminalization, Independent Prosecutors, and the Rule of Law”, it is well worth downloading and reading.
You the Progressives have gone too damn far when they start trying to destroy our Christmas holiday classics.
This week the principal of LaGuardia, the performing-arts high school in Manhattan, decreed that all Nazi paraphernalia be removed from the set and production of “The Sound of Music” — an anti-Nazi show (duh) set in Austria just as it’s being taken over by the Nazis.It’s getting to the point of being terminally ridiculous.
Another case in point: ABC’s 1973 classic “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” was recently attacked because its only black character, Franklin, was seated alone on one side of the dinner table while his white friends sat on the other side.
Meanwhile, the Huffington Post noted that the 1964 TV show “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was “seriously problematic” because many viewers said they were disturbed by its themes of sexism and bullying.
Then there’s the song “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” In 1944, the songwriter Frank Loesser began performing a skit in song form at the parties he attended in Hollywood with his then-wife, Lynn. He was “the wolf,” she the “mouse,” and they were together at his home when she decided to take her leave.
Almost anyone can be offended by something in just about anything if one looks hard enough. Then again, Progressives are offended by everything all the time, particularly if it doesn’t fit in with the Progressive narrative. They profess to not want to offend anyone, but in the process they offend everyone, even themselves. It gets to the point that no one wants to deal with them in any way, shape, or form because they are major buzzkills about damn near everything.
I have been saying this for years.
It appears the warmists have been purposely ignoring factors that likely have a far greater effect on the climate than CO2, specifically water vapor and the Urban Heat Island effect.
The warmists need CO2 to be the culprit because it is something that is quantifiable even if it only a minor factor affecting climate. Water vapor is almost impossible to control, mitigate, or tax. The Urban Heat Island effect is something that would require more research to quantify, can likely be mitigated without spending trillions and destroying national economies, and something that doesn’t lend itself to being exploited by the warmists or being taxed to death.
It’s time to call a spade a spade and slam ‘em up side the head with reality.
And that’s the delayed and slightly abbreviated news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where the below normal temperatures have made it seem more like January, the Christmas shopping frenzy has not abated since Black Friday, and Christmas is fast approaching.
