Who are we???

Are we peons to the elite?

Or are we ‘flyover country’ and only deserve to be denigrated and ignored by our ‘betters’ on the coasts?

We do pickup trucks, boots, and cowboy hats. And we know about oil, cows, and how to raise, butcher, and cook things. And we don’t think the stuff in grocery stores comes from trucks…

Most of us have travelled, not necessarily by choice, since a simple trip to the store can be 20 miles or more, not down the block to the bodega. A lot of us have also served in the military, or were ‘military adjacent’, e.g. military kids/family.

And yes, most of us believe in God, guns, and country. We don’t care about the color of a person’s skin either. It’s what they are inside that counts for us (that military thing again).

We want our children to be educated, to know readin’, writin’, and ‘rithmatic, and civics too! But we also appreciate those who work in the service side of things, as most of us, at one time or another, have been one of those people.

We value family, and the ‘family’ we choose to associate with. We will help folks at the drop of a hat, knowing that there, but for the grace of God, go us.

And we try to live within our means, although as inflation hits, that becomes harder to do each month. Either that, or I’ve grown so strong I can carry $100 worth of groceries with two fingers (well, it WAS only two bags…sigh).

Given the choice, we always prefer to laugh, not cry, and prefer to live our lives quietly, with dignity, and left in peace.

But if we don’t have that option, we do have other capabilities…

Thank you for attending my TED talk…

When MSNBC starts questioning…

The cat is out of the bag…

MSNBC host Katy Tur is questioning the legitimacy of whether the ban against former President Trump’s businesses is “fair.”

Full article, HERE.

And it’s obvious a LOT of business folks are taking a hard look at New York and whether or not their business might be the next one to come to the state’s attention.

I’m betting there will be a quiet exodus in the next couple of years of major corporations to ‘friendlier’ states…

When you say the truth…

People get…uncomfortable…

Ohhh, this could be interesting…

Another ‘issue’ for Disney to deal with in 2024…

The Walt Disney Company board wants to hide key financial data from the public, particularly as it relates to their funding of the transgender movement and donations to political candidates, documents reviewed by the Daily Caller reveal.

The 2024 proxy vote ballot for Disney’s annual shareholder meeting, scheduled for April 2, reveals the board doesn’t want the public, or even their own shareholders, to know how much Disney spends on “gender transition compensation and benefits” for its staff. Despite the board’s suggested vote to shareholders, the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) and National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) are urging the company to release the data.

As if the last couple of years hasn’t been bad enough with the losses in Florida, the Kennedy fiasco(s), their stock is down, and Trian Partners is trying to get people on the board, HERE, to try to straighten out the company to the point it’s actually making money again…

And the cost just keeps going up, and up, and up! My cousins have been taking grandkids to Disney for years, but have decided to quit doing that due to costs, ending a 30 year tradition. I feel for the kids, but when you’re looking at $6000+ for them and five kids for four days, I don’t blame them at all.

And honestly, Disney’s entertainment is in the tank, too!

Sigh…

Why am I NOT surprised…

By this one… So much for DEI in DC…

A plan to integrate two nearby Washington, D.C., schools with vastly different racial backgrounds is sparking fierce debate among parents in the predominantly liberal community.

Nearly 6 in 10 of the 500 children at Maury Elementary School are White. At Miner Elementary School, 80% of the kids are Black, many of whom are in foster care, receive public assistance or are homeless. Enrollment at the school has been declining, according to The Washington Post.

Full article, HERE from Fox News.

I know in the South the schools were integrated in the 60s, with little to no problems. I ‘thought’ DC et al were supposedly the ‘leaders’ in this, knowing that the elites went to the high dollar private schools either in VA or MD.

Guess I was wrong, as usual… sigh…

And it looks like the ‘liberals’ are once again showing their true colors, when actions come at them and they have to put up with what they’ve forced down us peon’s throats for years…

Actually, I think it’s pretty funny to watch what is going on, and I think I need more popcorn for this one!

 

My shocked face…

I have it around here somewhere…

Many leftists have made their allegiances clear in the war between Hamas and Israel. This includes members of the mainstream media who have sought to equivocate between Islamic terrorists and the Jewish state — and sometimes report outright lies.

One journalist has taken his bias toward Hamas to an extreme, and it won’t shock you when you find out what outlet he works for.

Especially since this is NOT the first one that has been ‘outed’ so to speak.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since this has been going on for a while. Fifth and Sixth Columns go back to the Spanish Civil War in the mid-1930s.

And usually the ‘media’ was involved in one way or the other, but I don’t think it’s been as blatant as we’ve seen it in the last ten years or so.

What say you?

Bread and circuses???

Welp, the House tried again for Mayorkas.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been impeached by the House of Representatives.

A Cabinet secretary has not been impeached by the U.S. Congress since 1876.

The office of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Mayorkas’ impeachment trial will begin later this month. 

Full article, HERE from Fox News.

So, this will play out over the next month or so, with…predictable results in the Senate, with the Dems refusing to kick him to the curb. Meanwhile, crap that NEEDS to be done will be pushed to the side…

Again…

And there is still no action on the border, the Senate has still refused to take up HR2 which was passed last year, the administration has now decided that the VA should be treating illegals, there is no budget passed, and we are effectively in a 2 front war with Russia/Ukraine and Israel/Gaza/Hezbollah and the Iranian proxies…

And in California’s senate debate, one of the candidates said Commie…er Californians ‘deserve’ $50/hr as a minimum wage to ‘survive’ in that state.

The loonies truly ARE running the asylum…

 

Learn something new…

Every time I turn around…

I truly wasn’t aware of this one, but I don’t play in the market, so I never thought about it.

A long-running battle over the Securities and Exchange Commission’s policy of muzzling defendants in enforcement cases is gaining new momentum in the courts, thanks to one of the biggest critics of federal regulatory power.

The New Civil Liberties Alliance, a conservative legal group that has been at the forefront in the clash over regulatory reach, is leading a pair of long-shot challenges looking to knock down the SEC’s half-century-old policy of barring most defendants who settle with the agency from speaking out against the charges.

Kinda sounds like a violation of the 1st Amendment to me, but what do I know?

I always ‘thought’ that once the trials/etc. were over, people were free to speak.

I know there is an ongoing move afoot to silence anyone who doesn’t toe the line on the left’s agenda/utopian dreams as spewed by the MSM, but that is one of the benefits of the Intarwebz, there are plenty of choices out there to listen to.

The problem I see, is that few actually DO any real research, tending to go with whatever the sound bite from whatever side they believe is the only answer. And people are no longer willing or able to actually engage in dialog where both sides get their chance to speak.

That really bothers me, because I’ve always believed in/been willing to exchange ideas freely without being ‘forced’ to accept things I do not believe in.

Wow…

I don’t care which team you were rooting for last night, that was one helluva game!

And it became obvious that they didn’t ‘fill’ all the ad slots! They were replaying ads in the OT.

I”m sleeping in this morning, y’all go read the folks on the sidebar!

Interesting…

Before I get to the post, we got through the BBQ okay, with 33 teams competing! Good food was enjoyed by all, and congrats to the winners! And my butt is draggin…

Now the news- Denver v. illegals…

As Denver cuts funding for American citizens’ jobs and programs to keep supporting illegal aliens who shouldn’t be in the country at all, the city’s Democrat mayor is whining about Congressional Republicans.

PJ Media’s Rick Moran reported that Denver was among the cities cutting costs to deal with the flood of illegal immigrants who continue to invade this country with minimal to no vetting under Joe Biden. The Epoch Times also noted that Democrat Denver Mayor Mike Johnston blames Republicans in Congress for the cutbacks, since GOP congressmen (at least temporarily) killed the disastrous border deal. In other words, Johnston refuses to admit that his city is wrongly welcoming and prioritizing illegals with taxpayer money; instead, he demands more taxpayer money to cover for his Party’s financial foolishness.

Full article, HERE.

Sooooo, just like NYC, Chicago, and California, they are cutting services to actual CITIZENS to pay for the illegals in their ‘sanctuary city’. Meanwhile, it’s all the Pub’s fault…

Talk about not washing worth .02 cents…

And I wonder how many of them will vote in 24 for the dems so they can keep sucking at the US tit and sending most of the money they get back to their home countries?
