Impending Doom



Carukia barnesi is a venomous jellyfish found near Australia. Stings can result in Irukandji syndrome, characterized by a feeling of “impeding doom.” Patients have been reported as being so sure they are going to die that they beg their doctors to kill them to get it over with.

I get that feeling from some people, mostly democrats 😉

France Not France?



“FRANCE DOES NOT BELONG TO THE FRENCH!"

The gall of these invaders makes me sick.

How long before unlimited immigration will make America not the America we know and love?"

Debunk The Bunk



In these post-Mueller report times, the democrat-laden media is in a petulant frenzy of creating anti-Trump news...

Nolte: Debunking The Media’s Seven Latest Hysteria Hoaxes

Free speech applies to speech you like and to speech you despise. The MSM has not held up their journalistic duty of presenting "just the facts" and Americans have to hold them accountable for lies.

Archie, It Is



Archie Harrison: The Meaning Behind The Royal Baby's Name

I suspected these two chuckle-heads would come up with something weird, and they did, but I'm grateful that they didn't chose Mohammed, in honor of their moslem UK overlords.

USF Bull$**t

The University of South Florida, my alma mater, decided the school needed a re-branding and the old logo had to go...



So they decided to commission a new logo...



The new logo didn't turn out well so they commissioned some improvements which didn't turn out well either. Can you spot the differences between the two designs?

‘We Still Hate It.’ USF Students And Alumni Respond To Final Logo Design

It was announced yesterday that the new and not improved logo has been killed.

USF Abandons Unpopular New Logo, Adopts 'Bull U' Design Used By Athletic Department

So at a cost of close to a million dollars, USF has reverted back to its old design:

Socialism On Display



These is what the Venezuelan government is doing to Venezuelans today.

I haven't heard a word out of the usually highly vocal proponents of socialism today, have you?

E pluribus unum



An excellent piece by Ryan P. Williams of the Claremont Institute:

Defend America—Defeat Multiculturalism

FTA: "Through identity politics and political correctness, today's multiculturalist enforcers seek to erase and replace America. Together, we must save the Union once again."

Out of many, one.

Obstruction Of Coup?



I recently tweeted: "Were we reading the same report or did I fall into Bizarro world?"

The left promptly forgot about collusion and started up with the new buzzword: obstruction.

Slimy Group Therapy For The Trump Haters

FTA: "If you are looking for a high crime and misdemeanor to justify impeachment, there is no such crime as “obstruction of coup”. As a matter of fact, obstruction of coup would seem to be a patriotic act for which the president should be praised not impeached."

Hear. Hear.

Throwback Thursday



This is where I went to 6th grade, the Holy Name of Jesus school in Manhattan, a very humbling structure.

After lunch we'd play on the sidewalk and sniper nuns would watch us from the parapets.

One day a bunch of us got in BIG trouble for holding hands and spinning in a circle.

We had to bring notes home for our parents to sign absolving the school from liability in case we cracked our skulls performing daredevil acts.😱

Those were the days...

Deadly Bird



Giant Bird, Cassowary Claws Owner To Death In Florida



Think of it as death by modern day velociraptor*. The cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) is a large bird (~6') that sports 5-inch claws and runs very fast (~31 mph). It is considered the world's most dangerous bird. Why in the world would you keep one in your yard?

🙄

Leave it to one Florida man who found out the hard way that a cassowary doesn't make a good pet.




* [The Blog note: I use the term velociraptor loosely and only because it is highly recognizable as opposed to the actual fierce dinosaur bird, Deinonychus, which few are familiar with. Thanks for perpetuating the lie, Jurassic Park franchise.]
