The Ides of April

A Party in the Worker's Paradise

This was the scene a few years ago as Dear Leader reviewed his troops doing the "river dance". (Who thought that it would have caught on in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea?)


Today is remembered in Nork-land as the birthday of grandpa (the first Dear Leader) Kim Il Sung. Whether or not it will be the last year that it's celebrated is still in doubt. Though April 15 has all but passed and there is no report of a nuclear test in Norkland, it's a very troubled place with exceptionally troubled people. It's essentially a large, encapsulated gulag. It's a stain on humanity.

There is plenty of money for war machines in the worker's paradise to keep the ruling regime in power. Not much money for food.

Girls Lose

In the enlightened, progressive world espoused by your betters, sporting events are changing as boys self-identify as girls for the purpose of sports competition. The reason that track and field were separated by male and female groupings were because it was not fair for men and women to compete head-to-head. Now that in true Bruce Jenner fashion, it's not what courting tackle you have or lack, but how you see yourself at the moment. In high school, you can run a race as a girl, shower and change in the girl's locker room and then go and be a boy for the rest of the day.
Note: The writer of the article with no sense of irony, reality, or shame, refers to the boy as a 'she'. 
Land Wolf

For those of you who follow the White Wolf Mine project, I just purchased some adjoining land. It will remain fallow and pristine. I simply wanted more elbow room. Yes, there are The 1.856-million acres of national forest elbow room adjacent to the property. At the same time, somebody could have thrown up a shack within eyesight of the mine. I didn't think it likely, but now I own it and the point is moot.

It's been bothering me and I'm pleased that it's done. I could have ground the property owners more than I did, but at some point, it's better to leave something for people who apparently needed to sell for their own welfare as much as I wanted to buy privacy and distance.
