being thankful

Among the things I am thankful for is that the manipulators have not messed up the language and culture of Thanksgiving Day. It remains on Thursday and is still widely celebrated as a day with families coast-to-coast gathering and giving thanks for what they do have. My wife and I have now crested 20 years together and the team is holding up well, giving both of us comfort, joy, peace, support and happiness. Though many have extolled the virtues of unpalatable yams, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie, there is nobody forcing me to gag them down… and so many wonderful things I do enjoy are all readily available. Weather is not unpleasant, our homestead is strong and we are […]

The DC Swamp shuffle step dance is giving Disco a run for its money

There are some people getting all twitterpated over movement among the blathering idiots and sociopaths in The Swamp. I cannot share their enthusiasm. Two pithy sayings come to mind: How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. Left wing and right wing are both parts of the same bird. The DC Swamp’s main and only industry is graft, corruption and power. If you are hoping someone there will ride in on a white charger, wearing his shining armor and save you, I have a super good deal for you on ocean front property in Montana. No. Not even THAT GUY is going to save a lethargic, ignorant public. This story has been played out thousands […]

Little Boxes by Pete Seeger

I was surprised to listen recently and realize how deep this song went. I missed the point when it came out, but at 14 years old was pretty shallow myself. Many years later I saw the tract homes covering the hillside south of San Francisco, was immediately reminded of, and began singing the song to myself. I didn’t realize then it was that very scene inspired the song, but it sure did fit. I embedded the audio track below – essentially the You Tube version without the tracking and advertising. https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/Little-Boxes-by-Pete-Seeger.webm Wikipedia covers the history of it nicely. I excerpt here. Over there you can read a university professor claiming that the conformity Malvina and Pete were against is actually […]

This is so hard to watch

I am almost overwhelmed by the number of people who talk as if the voters were stupid, insane or ignorant. That is not what we just witnessed. Hello vote-tallying fraud on a grand scale. Who could miss this? Yet there is a disappointingly large contingent who believe what the presstitutes spew. NO! You damned fools, the voters did not lose their minds. They merely lost their votes. The voters did not select the OBVIOUSLY INCOMPETENT, CRIMINAL CANDIDATES. The vote talliers did. The voters did not make a darn bit of difference. Get angry. Get violently angry. THAT is the only way to turn this machine off. […]

The clown circus

This barely warrants commentary. What amazes me is that some people who appear in many ways to have normal human cognitive abilities buy what lamestream political presstitutes are selling. Old timey solutions should have been applied long, long ago, but “we” don’t like people such as those any more. Too masculine. Too religious. Too narrow minded. Too-too … or is that spelled tutu? Among the ridiculous stories that light this particular fuse of mine are the goofy gender-bender tales. Anyone tolerating or accepting this insanity is immediately clicked off of my list for having any intelligent conversational potential. Men have penises; women have vaginas. When confusion begins to muddle your head, refer to the above two statements. If your […]

living at peace with our world

Decades ago my best friend encouraged me to let go of the negativity I perceived in our world and that he did not. I couldn’t. He still lives in ‘commyfornia’ and I do not. That amounts to decades where he was at peace with his world, his government, his mainstream media and the people in his neighborhood … and I was not. I do not feel qualified to claim my position as superior. He had an extra 25 years of peace and comfort that I spent preparing for disasters that have not yet happened and distrusting “leaders”, media and darn-near all officials. Not to mention the huge chunk of time and money I spent trying to work on a political […]

The future of transportation

As THEY continue destruction of our lovely world, we have few intelligent choices before us. Of course we could hang our expectations on the hook that what has always been the way of the world will continue to be so. That one only works properly for those whose views span centuries and aren’t limited to the tales published by the victors. Suffice to say that is not common. All of the world’s interlinked fiat currencies are turning to dust. Even less reliable and more controlled e-currencies are waiting in the wings to be trotted out when the masses are deemed ready to accept the change. Food, energy, hardware, and more are about to be nearly unobtainable. On to the […]

My Attorney Bernie

I recently shared a Dave Frishberg song I really like. Here is another gem, “My Attorney Bernie”. https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/My-Attorney-Bernie-Vocal-1.mp3 Recent events are conspiring to place us in their world, that is, the legal morass designed to transfer wealth from those who deserve it to the less deserving. Suffice to say I do not like it. Dave’s little ditty does a good job describing the situation. My little group of loyal readers have undoubtedly noticed a shortfall in my postings. Meanwhile, our homestead is a whole lot better prepared for winter than it was a couple months ago. Also unaffected by my absence, the trajectory of cultural, economic and political decline remains as solidly negative as it has been at anytime in […]

rolling roadblocks

I am teasing my way through Leanings 2 by Peter Egan. This evening I came across a gem describing as I wish I could the massive barrier to free movement when a large group of motorcyclists, or specialized car gang decide to CRUISE roadways that the vast majority of travelers use for actual travel. I have come across small-to-medium-sized batches of them from time to time. If there aren’t too many, or the roadway is favorable, I typically put them behind me … thus disappearing from their lives forever … which should not be any bother at all to them, but often is a major insult in some weird way … if you don’t want to crawl down the […]

chatting up a bicycle gang

In a rare trip to our friends’ restaurant, I noticed a fleet of bicycles parked outside. We sat across from a similar number of gentlemen all wearing High-Visibility vests. I opened a conversation with something like, “You brilliant-looking men must be related to the bicycles parked outside”. That elicited chuckles all around, earning us camaraderie and their fascinating story. The first major surprise was in response to “Where are you all from?” Only two started off on their epic bucket-list coast-to-coast tour together. They met up on the road, found compatibility and have been riding together ever since. Their personal journeys varied from two months to one month on the road with a ways yet to go. A nicer […]

Hospice is far more than I thought

Without any experience, we think of hospice as someone who will hold the patient’s hands in their last few days of life on Earth. We just learned how much more our local hospice service is, and how wonderful the providers are. I suspect it is much like that everywhere. The quality, knowledge, skills and nature of people who go into that line of work is likely quite similar – that is to say incredibly caring, helpful and considerate. They have tremendous experience with the final phases of life as it effects the main person and all those around them. In our case they helped us understand what Mom was likely feeling and what we could do to make her last […]

June 28th is chocolate cake for breakfast day

Here is a holiday you don’t want to miss. It is every bit as valid as darn-near all others. I might have to do some baking on the 27th. … not sure I can get my wife on-board with this one. However, the odds are a whole lot better than the Soros/BLM Community Destroyer holiday that just passed us by. We would have missed it altogether except that our credit union was closed.

inside every silver lining is a dark cloud

https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Dont-Worry-Be-Happy-Bobby-McFerrin.mp3 I do not know why some people choose to go through life finding the darkness in their world. Life presents us with infinite bright spots. We merely choose to inhabit one or the other. One of my good, young friends is like that. I believe he spends time with me in part because I continually ridicule his tenacious grip on the dark cloud of the moment. He is a logical person and knows I am right when I am. This morning I retold the tale to him of the old hound dog laying on the porch whining and howling because a nail was digging into his side. Getting up to solve the problem was not on the agenda. On […]

Tennis tales from the only guy the coach couldn’t beat

My Dad loved tennis and gave me excellent private lessons. The skills and techniques he taught me were a great foundation. Tennis is a very fast-moving strategy and technique game that I was uniquely well suited for. In a graduating class of 1,000 and a school of almost 3,000 students, I was not only among the smallest boys there, I was the third best tennis player in the school … including the tennis coach in that pool. Among the more important bits in tennis are hitting the ball where your opponent is not, making it as difficult as possible for him to return the ball, striving to keep him off balance, doing the unexpected… an undercut short shot just […]
