Nincompoopery

  1. Speaking of nincompoopery, what about CPACs ban of Pamela Geller.

  3. FJ,
    I spent most of today so far getting my tax papers in order, so I was unaware that Pamela had been disinvited from CPAC. Thanks for letting me know!

  4. There is so much "nincompoopery" and so much bad temper and poor sportsmanship around these days one wonders if there are any fully sane, mature, good-natured adults left anymore?

    Incessant complaints, taking offense, taking exception to innocuous remarks, intolerance of petty trifles and trying always to make an "issue" or a "federal case" out of every little thing that comes down the pike is turning this world into something that may not be hell, but certainly must resemble purgatory very closely.

    What happened to HUMOR? It seems as though no one can take -- or even RECOGNIZE -- a joke anymore.

    You can tell just by the descriptions of contemporary movies that we're in trouble. EVERYTHING is about drug addiction, rape, incest, murder, child abuse, "recovery" from addition, Sadism. Masochism, monsters that can't be beaten, devil worship -- everything, sick, sinful, depressing and rotten to the core.

    I think we're making a self-fulfilling prophecy of our own Doom by putting up with this poisonous garbage disguised as "entertainment."

    I am not "with it." I have not "kept up." And for that I thank God every day. But still it feels awfully strange and lonely to go to sleep in one world like Rip Van Winkle, and wake up in an alien place out of one's own time. And that is EXACTLY what it has felt like to me since the Sick-sties.

    To "adjust" to today's reality would be tantamount to selling my soul to the devil. No thanks!

  5. FT,
    For the reasons you've cited above, I'm not spending as much time on the web these days.

    Instead, I'm reading All Creatures Great and Small. What joy to ready the writings of James Herriott!

  6. "police coming in once a year just to look around"

    Not around here, not without a warrant for something specific. But the Obama administration would love it. Think of all the new jobs they could create and all the guns they could confiscate.

  7. I wonder if 'affirming" transgendered students means that dating them will soon be mandatory.

    Take a Tranny to the Prom or Face Expulsion.

    Oh the glorious times in which we live!

  8. Scenes from the Future:

    "Mother, I'd like you to meet my fiance, Barbara. Her name used to be Bob back when she was still a man, but she's all woman now. Isn't she lovely?"

    GAWD!!!
