Call for Support

Ladies and Gentlemen of the cyber-world.  I am asking for money.  Not for me, but for the victims of both Harvey and Irma.  As you most may know, the American Red Cross is VERY LOW AND DISRESPECTED in the list of charities.  While they collect the lion’s share of donations, less than half of their money actually reaches the field.  What with high-paid central staff, fund raising costs, and just plain graft and incompetence, the stories coming out of Texas show a callous disregard for just about everything and everyone involved. I am a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus.  As … Continue reading

Socialist Party Platform

There have been numerous claims by the left that the Nazis and the Fascists (who are not the same thing despite the leftist mythology) are right-wing, and not socialist at all.  For those persons who have mental abilities beyond those of a kumquat, please take the items listed here below, and compare them with the Manifesto of the Fascist Party and the 25 points of the Nazi Party platform, both posted earlier on this site.  As you can see, deleting the racist krap of the real Nazi Party (and the silly posturing of the know-nothing neo-Nazis), everything in the Nazi … Continue reading

Interesting History of the New World

I came across an interesting piece of early American history today.  Wish I had found it earlier so it could have been posted early this morning rather than late. On September 10 of the year 1570 – Spanish Jesuit missionaries landed in present-day Virginia to establish the short-lived Ajacán Mission and bring Christianity to the Virginia Indians. Early in the 16th century, Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to see the Chesapeake Bay while in search of the fabled Northwest Passage to India. They named the land now known as Virginia, as Ajacán. In 1570, Father Juan Bautista de Segura, … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” ― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

You will do me the justice to remember, that I have always supported the Right of every Man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine.  He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.  The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason.  I have never used any other, and I trust I never shall. Thomas Paine
