And That Reminds me Of A Song…

Twitter just got caught suppressing the accounts of U.S. lawmakers they don’t agree with, i.e. Republicans.

What’s the big deal? Democrats have been doing everything in their power (and a few things beyond their powers) to suppress the policies of a politician they don’t agree with, with complete impunity.

democrats occupy resist obstruct

Apparently Twitter changed their definition of “shadow banning” in order to be able to deny that they did it. Unlike Democrats who proudly continue with their obstructionism, some of which is beginning to look deranged if not illegal.maxine waters

But that’s okay, if the Dems keep pushing their neo-socialist platform President Trump’s observation from 2016 will be even more true in 2020:

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters."1

And that reminds me of a song:

But I shot a man in Reno, Just to watch him die

1For the benefit of Democrats and others with no sense of humor, he was JOKING.

#FLOTUSFriday - “Prepare to be amazed. After all, that is what I do.”

FLOTUS in Nashville:


She was visiting a children’s hospital that treats babies born with Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) - a group of conditions caused when a baby withdraws from opioids they were exposed to in the womb – i.e. mom was a drug addict.

Of course the haters immediately unloaded on Melania because, you know, her husband is TEARING CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS ARMS!

Meantime her husband, VSGDJT, just continues to MAGA, renegotiating trade deals around the world that will put the U.S. back on what the Left likes to call a “level playing field.” All while managing to keep the great economic engine that is America roaring along. June numbers out due out in an hour and by all accounts you should prepare to be amazed! Beyond all expectations. And unlike Obama, who did it with mirrors, President Trump does it the old fashioned way.

Throwback Thursday

When drsarabi posted her towns’s (Alton, Illinois) excellent response to a lip-synch challenge yesterday it reminded me of an old post I did on my hometown’s lip dub. It was filmed on May 22nd, 2011 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and by all accounts its 5000 participants set a new lip-synch world record.

“This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a ‘dying city.’ We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean's ‘American Pie,’ a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope." - Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer

Since I have to  take my car in this  morning for an IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL - and if I don’t we’re ALL GOING TO DIE or something - I’m reposting it again hoping it gets your day off to a good start.

So grab your coffee and take a tour of my hometown’s downtown…

By the way, USA TODAY named Grand Rapids the Best Beer Town in America in 2014. So once again it would seem that Newsweek is fake news: GR’s demise was greatly exaggerated.

P.S. Around the 5:00 mark you can see my old high school’s cheer squad. Go CC Cougars!!

LIVE! From New York!

The immediate and unhinged blowback from CRTV’s hysterical mashup interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demonstrates that somebody hit a nerve.

The Verge went so far as to say “a million Facebook users watched a video that blurs the line between bad satire and ‘fake news’.” Seriously? If you can watch this video and not realize that it’s satire:

One of two things is at play: 1) You have no sense of humor, 2) the content is so close to the truth as to make it indistinguishable.

Still, the winking emoji  at the end should have provided a clue to even the clueless. Alternative explanation, as opined by Johnny Philistine:

"good satire" = lampooning Republicans
"bad satire" = exposing Democrats
"blurs the line" = our followers are too stupid to differentiate

Either way, if the hysterically funny Left believes CRTV needs to label their video as “satire” I think it only fair that the Democrats should be required to label their neo-socialist candidate as “satire” as well.

Wave of Murder Sweeps Over Toronto: Guns Blamed

Granted, Toronto’s 58 homicides YTD can’t hold a candle to Detroit’s, but still, that’s a distressingly high count for a nation said to have common-sense gun control™ and very few murders.

Following Saturday’s fatal shooting spree by Faisal Hussain in the city’s Greektown area, Toronto’s mayor thinks the common sense solution lies in a total disarmament of the city:

“Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?” he said.

I don’t know: maybe for self-defense? Due to the rapidly rising wave of violent crime in the city on the lake?

And remember kids, just like in America, in Canada when seconds count the police are only minutes away.

riptide costa ricaMy, that’s a really big wave on Lake Ontario!

Hillary in the Land of OZY: Still Not President

Hillary went to the NY OZY Music/Tech-Talk/Food Fest and she didn’t even get a lousy tee-shirt.

2018 OZY Fest NYC

What she got instead was some type of wrapper that can only be compared, unkindly, to a circus tent,


or possibly a toilet paper cover:


blue toilet paper doll

But everyone loved her shoes!


which I tracked down for you on Amazon in case you want a pair of your own:

I’m not sure why Hillary was invited to a Fest that claims to feature “today's hottest entertainers, innovators and thought leaders who are ahead of their time.” Not only is old Over-the-Hilz not hot, there are times when she’s barely room temperature. But then…

None really, because - thanks be to God - Hillary is still not President.

Chill: It’s Not Time To Get All Wee-weed Up Yet

Maybe it’s because it was the third of three weddings since May; maybe it’s just because we’re getting old. The night was a whirl of deafening music, wild little children chasing laser lights on the dance floor like a herd of cats while young adults and near-adults danced to the oldies (it’s amazing how many really old songs, recycled by new artists, make their way into the modern wedding repertoire) well into the wee hours.

Of course it was lovely, all weddings are: the bride was radiantly gorgeous, the parents understandably misty-eyed (she is their first, he is their last) and nary a word of politics uttered the entire evening. But given this was just the 9th wedding of our 24 nieces and nephews I decided I’d best sleep in this morning and gather energy for the upcoming years.

As such I wish you all a wonderful Sunday. So here’s to fair weather, reasonable temperatures and low humidity – we have none of the above – as you enjoy the day. I’d recommend that you all chill as we’re quickly headed into the dog days of August when, as our former most-eloquent-President-ever liked to tell us, Washington “gets all wee-weed up” .
