Bachelor’s Corner on Memorial Day Sunday

On Sundays, for over three years after my separation, I walked about a quarter of mile down the street to a Christian Church, in part because I liked the preacher, the son of an Army chaplain. And I liked the church itself. It was stranger-friendly. It was a rotunda, and the sanctuary was designed like ... Read More

From My CP: Rednecks, White Socks and Uncle Lucius

I'm still busy as hell, more work to do than there are hours in the day but I had to make a post today in honor of President Trump's Budget Proposal.  What a perfect time to begin "The Era of the Taxpayer!"  There is nothing I would find more attractive than actually paying attention to ...

What Will this Next Civil War Look Like? A Prelude

PRELUDE Make no doubt about it, in much the same way that Abraham Lincoln's election in 1860 prompted the first Civil War, the election of Donald Trump in 2016 has prompted this second one. While ostensibly over slavery, what the election of the Republicans in 1860 signaled was the end of an era, that era ... Read More

From My CP: Hello Mrs Pelosi, You Self Righteous Woman…

I apologize for disappearing from the face of the earth but it is "Winter's Coming" here.  Between work, the garden (oh gods help me), the damnable grass and just life I haven't had enough ambition for the interwebs.  I miss y'all but I know y'all can feel what I'm talking about.  I'm tired, rode hard ...

Chasing the Source of Trump’s Russian Intelligence Leak

To understand the leftwing Media's suicidal obsession with destroying Donald Trump, an observation on the Washington Post's "blockbuster" report about the serious security infraction by Donald Trump with the Russians is still more instructive than the New York Times-Comey memo story, which still needs to develop more legs in order to mean anything other than a rumor. Maybe it ... Read More

One-Liners From the Front, 2011-2016 by Vassar Bushmills

Donald Trump Most of the things said about Donald Trump are not really about Donald Trump, but about something else. I can list a hundred negative things to say about Trump, only to find many of them not to be substantiated by fact, and the misstatements of fact I’m finding are often sourced back to the Left. Ironic ... Read More

Two Simple Answers to the Timing of the James Comey Firing

No 1: The first is a simple equation of process, doing things by the book, for which Donald Trump would have been double-damned had he violated in the manner of how, and when he fired FBI Director James Comey. In two days, I've listened to and read at least 50,000 words trying to explain politically what can ... Read More

From My CP: Cold Lonesome Wind, Springtime Takes a Boot to the Balls

Springtime got over confident, he was sure he owned this and Old Man Winter just walked up and kicked Springtime square in the balls.  The long range forecast is for Spring to be bent over struggling to breathe for the next month.  Colder and wetter than average.  That'll make it harder on the farmers, more ...

After Hitler: Is Europe Returning to Type?

"After Hitler" is a 2-part video documentary series about Europe in the five years immediately following World War II, 1945-1949. Each episode is roughly 43 minutes and was produced in 2016 but has the unmistakable feel of a 1940s news reel, although theatres rarely showed newsreels in color. This is a MUST-SEE, for every generation since it will show you things ... Read More

Major university: fracking doesn’t contaminate ground water

We all know about the angst the Left and environmental groups have had about fracking. And please include our last president, Barack Obama as a major cause as well. Even so-called Hollyweird has gotten involved against fracking as a cause celeb because of their washed-up careers (mostly) they have nothing else to do but cause trouble. We have ... Read More

Mobilizing the People’s Wing of the Republican Party, to Make Voters Relevant Again

For years we've been talking about the conservative wing and Establishment wing of the Republican Party. I don't want to minimize conservatism here, but conservatism is actually undergoing some redefinition right now, and that redefinition is caused by the impact of the election of Donald Trump, splitting some intellectual conservatives away until they can reassess just where ...

Lenny, Squiggy and Sexual Harassment at Fox

As the old loyalty oaths during the Red Scare used to begin, "I am not now, nor ever have been..." a fan of Bill O'Reilly or his nightly show, "The Factor". I've never watched a single full hour. Some people just take themselves too damned seriously. That said, I'd like to state for the record ... Read More

From My CP: Springtime, Life is Hard and the World is Mean

Spring isn't a season here, Spring is the end of "Winter's Here" and the beginning of "Winter's Coming."  Winter's Here is miserable, too cold to be outside, too long to spend that much time in the house.  Winter's Comin' is a furious rush to get everything done in an 85 to 110 day growing season, ...
