A-B-C, 1-2-3, O-N-T!

Long day today, so I'm warning you...


Q Anon

Several people have asked me to explain this whole Q Anon thing. Folks, I don't have that type of time or typing stamina, so I'm just going to link Zero Hedge:

An Introduction To 'Q'

So, Ummm. There ya go. Stop asking.

You Know. The Thing.

Something Happened On The Way To Heaven

Horrifying 22-foot statue of baby Jesus looks just like Phil Collins(with pics). I'm quite proud of that section title, BTW.


He's wrong about one thing. These aren't economic migrants, at least not entirely. They are committed to spreading their religion VIA Hijrah, a term originally applied to Muhammad fleeing from Mecca to Medina, where he converted the locals to Islam and established the power base from which Islam spread. I say that they aren't entirely economic migrants because while I'm sure they are happy to accept the largess of the foolish Europeans (and justify it religiously as a kind of in-advance Jizyah), the largely secular Europeans have a great deal of difficulty in recognizing that non-secular people can and will go to extremes that are completely natural to, and even demanded by, their religion, extremes that are utterly baffling to the secular.


Sorry If You’re Offended, but Socialism Leads to Misery and Destitution

You know what doesn't? Market based systems.

When Boris Yeltsin went grocery shopping in Clear Lake

Yeltsin, then 58, "roamed the aisles of Randall's nodding his head in amazement," wrote Asin. He told his fellow Russians in his entourage that if their people, who often must wait in line for most goods, saw the conditions of U.S. supermarkets, "there would be a revolution.”

Shoppers and employees stopped him to shake his hand and say hello. In 1989, not everyone was carrying a smart phone in their pocket so Yeltsin "selfies" weren't a thing yet.

Yeltsin asked customers about what they were buying and how much it cost, later asking the store manager if one needed a special education to manage a store. In the Chronicle photos, you can see him marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.

"Even the Politburo doesn't have this choice. Not even Mr. Gorbachev," he said. When he was told through his interpreter that there were thousands of items in the store for sale he didn't believe it. He had even thought that the store was staged, a show for him. Little did he know there countless stores just like it all over the country, some with even more things than the Randall's he visited.

The fact that stores like these were on nearly every street corner in America amazed him. They even offered him free cheese samples.


About a year after the Russian leader left office, a Yeltsin biographer later wrote that on the plane ride to Yeltsin's next destination, Miami, he was despondent. He couldn't stop thinking about the plentiful food at the grocery store and what his countrymen had to subsist on in Russia.
