Friday Follies

Should you VOTE for Warren?


We've all seen her on stage. Yes, it's a rain dance.

And if she makes it rain, does that mean that she should be president because she can (by doing that idiotic dance that she does) stop global warming and reverse climate change!! All she has to do is wait for a favorable weather report and do her pookie dance. Think about it. The progressive lemmings would run into the sea in ecstasy at the thought of President Rain Cloud Warren fixing climate change.

Should the Police carry Guns?

It's an old argument. Black Lives Matter feel that one armed police officer is one too many. The wealthier progressive community feel that somebody out there needs to protect them from the great unwashed. And then there are the Constitutionalists who maintain that everyone who wants to carry a firearm should be able to do so, subject to the law and accountable for their conduct.

There are also the communists who feel that "only my friends should have guns."

An Homage to Jim and Kansas

Kansas dust-up
This may be the first twister forming in the history of Kansas and the Midwest. It's due to to President Trump, global warming or climate change. But we're all going to be dead in 10 years, so why worry? (survival kit contents check)

Kansas is cool (when the T-5 isn't behaving like the 'finger of God', rooting out the just and unjust). The people are genuine. They are a bit obsessive about their BBQ though and you need to stand back when an argument on that topic is brewing. Intervening won't help anything.

I've seen that first hand. Both people go to the same church, their families lived in the same town since the War of Northern Aggression and both of their great great grandads rode with Bloody Bill Anderson -- but on the issue of BBQ, they disagree. And it's not pretty. No, not in the least bit.

Cultural Appropriation

Yes, it happened again. Yesterday was "Talk Like a Pirate Day". It's the day with people whose ancestors were not pirates take it on themselves to pretend that they have some affiliation with genuine pirate people - and yes, that would be me.


My ancestors sailed on Queen Anne's Revenge, and now the world, particularly in the Caribbean littorals, wants to appropriate my culture.  It's disgusting. Women dressing up like wenches and drinking too much in the hopes of being picked up by men dressed up like pirates. This has to stop. No fun is allowed until reparations have been paid as set forth below:

I demand reparations - Danegeld if you want to call it that. Once I have enough, I will back down and un-denounce you all.

In the meantime, you can excoriate your shame by starting early and sending money to this blog. You're welcome. No Chinese Hell money or Confederate currency - real coin of the realm, or gold or silver bullion, or gold doubloons and pieces of eight. Something that nobody can appreciate quite the way that a pirate does.

P. S. - I have relatives who still won't talk to me after I proved on paper that our ancestors were English, not Irish, and that there's not a drop of Native American blood in us, but lots of Pirate Blood. Maybe that makes sense because I've been known to shout, "Surrender the Booty!" I don't think that American Indians normally say that in quite the same way as pirates do.

The Mail - Observations

WSF - Wonder who will foot the pending, very expensive, lawyer bills for Comey and company?
I don't follow this as closely as I should, but doesn't he have a 'go-fund-me' page up to pay for his woes. That may be his deputy, McAbe. He sold a lot of books, they talk about how pure and honorable he is. I'm sure that bit of honey will tide him over until he goes to prison.
LindaG - Beto will just get someone else to buy his gun for him.
His wife is worth at least half a billion dollars. They can afford to hire politically correct armed people who protect the elites. And I'm sure that it's a defense in depth with walls.
Jim - As long as that comet's not Lucifer's Hammer, we're good to go.
Maybe THAT is why the end is near. The interstellar comet will arc around the Sun and come back and hit us. I'm not predicting that in my role as 'Cassandra' - but we could be gone like the Dinos before next summer!
Old NFO - Re interstellar stuff, we don't have a CLUE what is really out there. Our lens, if you will, is so small it isn't funny.
If I need to know what's going on out there, I read your books. (shameless plug)
LSP - You beat me to the comet! But yes, if it slows down... let's see. In the meanwhile, the Navy's getting close to "disclosure." Interesting.
There is a reason why we have a big, beautiful Space Force.

  1. Many a girl has heard "surrender the booty!".
    In not so piratey tones.

  2. What you say about the BBQ is true. The Kansas City style is what flies around here, and I don't have to travel far get world class food. Maybe I'll do that for lunch today.
    My neighborhood, Miami County, is in the heart of what was known as Bleeding Kansas back in the ante bellum period. At one time both John Brown and William Quantrill lived here. Interesting times.
    I won't claim to have pirates in my ancestry. Possible, I suppose, but there's no mention of it in a family history that goes back to 1750s. No telling what happened before then.

    1. Did a quick google search and did find one possible, a Scottish pirate. My family did have a Scottish branch. Maybe.

  3. How do such documented losers end up with wealthy wives/husbands? Do they drug them? Play mind control games? Have assistance from others? There is a book waiting to be written here.

    Does setting the Captain of your whaling ship adrift in a whale boat in the middle of the Pacific count as piracy? The rest of the crew apparently thought it was a good idea also...
    I am striving to join the IAPA (International Association of Pirate Ancestors) so the pieces of eight will start flooding in. I can fabricate more evidence if needed.

  4. Careful what you wish for. Many a pirate ended up on the end of a rope.

  5. See, I have "real" Irish ancestors - Scots Irish, that is. Ha!

    My Mom, being a psychopathic ironclad bitch, used to dress us up in Orange for St. Patrick's day. Thankfully, it was an Italian town, so none of us got strung up.

    Took me until my teenage years before I figured out why all my Irish ancestors were named things like Fitzgibbon... fun times!

  7. In regard to special days, like the pirate one just mentioned that I will come back to shortly, next month recognises Black Dog Day. Do #BlackDogsMatter ?
    You have relatives who don’t talk to you because they have English in them? They should be thanking you! Them’s be the proper pirates, me hearties! I don’t understand the fascination with Americans wanting to be part Irish unless it’s about heart attack potatoes or vodka. There’s probably about as much Irish content in the blood as there is wolf in your pet chihuahua.

  8. I like the way this post started with an Indian and seamlessly worked its way to piracy and the Irish, via Kansas.

    What do you call Justin Trudeau without blackface? Shaun King.

    Hahahahahaha

  9. If you ask me, my Viking ancestors were way nastier than your milque-toast pirates. They took way more slaves, killed way more people, looted ways more booty, pilaged on a much grander scale and in general were superior in every evil way.

    Not that this is something to be proud of. Then again...
