Global Skywatch

the land of fruits and nuts

California lawmakers just accomplished the impossible: They came up with a law stupider than their prior chart toppers. It is now illegal to take a shower and do laundry on the same day. If they were not attached to the USofA it would be a lot more fun to watch. Unfortunately they share crazy things like Pelosi and Feinstein with us. Unsurprisingly, in the decade between 2004 and 2013 about five million Californians left the state. In that same time period, less than four million entered. It is a pretty safe bet that the departures were producers tired of carrying the socialist burden and the arrivals were people flocking to the fountain of free stuff. Venezuela here we come. […]

Democrats, “lots of free stuff”

The race to give away the most stuff Why sweat and toil when our gracious politicians can give you whatever you want? It is as simple as picking the right ones while we are in the voting booths. Well, you kind-of have to want what they have to offer. That usually turns out to be plenty for a while, but kind-of tapers off in unfortunate short order. I share another meme-based post from my topical collection. Their sales pitch is not new except to the indoctrinated and ignorant. Expect traditional results if they win. Speaking of the indoctrinated, the controllers of the secondary school system have abandoned higher education in exchange for molding minds to their liking. Early escape is […]

Merry Christmas

It is too easy to treat every day just like every other, but I do like to change it up once in a while with a special occasion. This is one I have been around all my life. No longer believing in the Little Town Of Bethlehem story has not diminished it much for me. I like everyone saying, “Merry Christmas”, sharing smiles and goodwill towards all of us. I enjoy sharing a widely understood non-work-day with friends and family. We KNOW nobody is working today. We are not supposed to be productive. Just relax and enjoy the companionship… unless you are the one who feeds the tribe. Hopefully we all do make sure she is having a wonderful day. […]

LGBT clubs are okay; Christian ones banished

You have entered The Twilight Zone when stuff like this becomes normal. I am neither Christian nor LGBT. Theoretically that would mean I have no dog in this fight. However, banning the Christians or any other group of peaceful individuals who are happy to cooperate and get along within a civil society is a very bad idea. The radical anti-normies refuse to settle for acceptance. They relentlessly strive for dominance. I am old enough to remember a few brave gays “coming out of the closet”. Now they DEMAND we embrace gender-benders, pedophilia and bestiality. C’mon. We don’t need to move into the pig slop just because it suits you. Some adults better show up in these communities before they […]

echo chamber failure

Normies, conservatives, traditionalists, right, producers, workers, or whatever label you want to put on us are very much aware of the loonies, progressives, left, Democrats, antifas and such. Lamestream media bans all normal stories, choosing instead to feature 100% nutcase junk. The big tech dirty dozen do the same darn thing. The result of this is that WE know exactly what THEY are thinking and doing… I mean painfully aware of it all. THEY, on the other hand have no idea what we are thinking and doing because their information sources banished all data coming from our side. The famous military tactician Sun Tzu would call that assured victory for our side in the coming conflict. As they back […]

Tuba Christmas Friday in Missoula

and many, many other cities throughout the USofA. This Friday, Dec 13th, 2019 at 7:00 pm in Southgate Mall Lucky’s Court Brooks St Missoula a platoon of musicians gather to make joyous noise with their tubas. They are open-minded enough to embrace players of euphoniums, baritones and Sousaphones as well, which makes for a marvelous combination of voices. Speaking of voices, they highly encourage the audience to join them by singing the Christmas Carols that are so familiar to those of us who grew up in this country. They typically play the first time through to the appreciative audience, then a second verse joined by hundreds of happy voices. As proof of this event’s popularity, it has been going on […]

anti-gun juggernaut shot down in Virginia

Big money and political tricksters turned Virginia from conservative to fascist. They couldn’t help themselves from doing a happy dance on the vanquished freedom lovers. Not so fast, Bucko. Your political trick did not bury the human spirit that quite apparently remains alive and well in the seat of the American Revolution. The victorious Virginia Democrat majority eagerly announced their state-wide gun confiscation scheme before they even took office. The Virginians fought back before the bewildered political snakes could even blink. Lovely show. Way-to-go-Jeffersonians. With a bit of luck mixed with good karma and strong human spirit, there will be repeats of this across the USofA.   Excerpts below. Click the links for the full Monty. This is the […]

keep your head on straight

Don’t bother reading this post until your head is in a mellow, contemplative state. Amazing to me is that the movie MATRIX was produced at all. It told the truth in many ways I would think were not acceptable to the rulers. Even more amazing was the allowance of two follow-up movies along the same line. If you have not watched the first one, DO. Realize it is very close to reality. If it resonates with you, watch the series. Few of us spend much time in the philosophical state. Bookmark this post and come back to it when you are in a deliberative mood. – Ted – Humans Are Free The matrix. It signifies seeing beyond the invisible prison […]

language barrier in movies

In discussing our viewing theDen of Thieves DVD, we agree it was a B-movie, at most. Moreover, the writers and producers were unable to assemble more than a sentence or two without the inappropriate, undescriptive, sub-grammar F word. As I mentioned earlier this month in The Wisdom of Daffy Duck: I am primarily referring to his superior vocabulary and wit when compared to moderns who have replaced every adverb, adjective and oftentimes other English language fundamentals with a single word that carries no information or meaning in their application thereof. Daffy’s exclamations were colorful. Such as Sufferin’ Succotash. Who in his audience even knew succotash as a corn and bean dish? We didn’t, but we full well understood his exasperation […]

modern slang definition: The Boogaloo

I have seen this word and understood it by context. Here is an entire article devoted to explaining the origin of the term and its modern useage. Not earthshaking, but interesting. – Ted –     The Boogaloo: Extremists’ New Slang Term for A Coming Civil War It’s not often an old joke evolves into a catchphrase for mass violence, but that’s just what’s happened this past year when a variety of extremist and fringe movements and subcultures adopted the word “boogaloo” as shorthand for a future civil war.  From militia groups to white supremacists, extremists on a range of online platforms talk about—and sometimes even anticipate—the “boogaloo.” The rise of “boogaloo,” and its casual acceptance of future mass violence, […]

Thanksgiving

I almost let today slide by as merely another one out of 365. Then I received a nice, thoughtful, philosophical e-mail entitled “Thankfulness”. Yeah. That concept should not be missed. He says it better than I, so take it away Elias… Love’s Thought System Thankfulness A Special Note From Elias As Thanksgiving approaches, I have been reflecting on many things in my life for which I am grateful. Being grateful is a blessing which uplifts the soul naturally, and leads the soul to a true realization of thankfulness. I am both grateful and thankful for a wonderful life on this earth, a life filled with colorful adventures,  creative endeavors, occupational shifts, inspiring milestones along life’s highway, and Friends like you […]

being comfortable in your own company

This is a very nice little video by a novelist who explains the power of being alone, more importantly being confident in solitude.  Being alone is not the same as being lonely. This is somewhat an updated version of Thoreau’s  Walden Pond. Strong, thoughtful people are not troubled by being away from the herd. Universally, creative people are not working from within a flock, but by themselves. Build a comfortable world around yourself. Do not allow yourself to be dependent on approval of a gang, group, or crowd.

finger felonies in middle school

Parents are increasingly pulling their children out of public schools. Homeschooling is blossoming. Private and religious schools are growing. Ridiculous stories from the government schools are exploding. I share a smattering of them here, starting with a current book on the subject, though John Taylor Gatto was warning us about government raising our young over 25 years ago with his activism and book “Dumbing US Down“. – Ted – Get Out Now Should we stay or should we go? Millions of parents with children in public schools can’t believe they’re asking this question. But they are. And you should be asking it too. Almost overnight, America’s public schools have become morally toxic. And they are especially poisonous for the hearts […]
