Everything’s Under Control; No Need To Call For Batman

Joe Lockhart: CNN Political Analyst and former WH press secretary under William J.Clinton:

Salute to Biden for restoring American leadership before taking a nap:

But don’t worry, Joey’s got this. He’s sending Putin a harsh letter. Next week. After he rests up.

Be Careful What You Wish For

I am aware that Kiev is falling to the Russians. I’m also aware that our global elites have determined that we are now to pronounce it ‘Keeve’ and spell it ‘Kyiv.’ Modern day elites always tend to focus on the most superficial facets of a situation, especially when they’ve no clue what else to do.

john kerryJean CarrĂ©, the muzzle-wearing “special presidential envoy for climate” – whatever the hell that is.

Case in point:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry appeared for an interview to express his regret that the war between Ukraine and Russia is distracting people from climate change.

Kerry, the special presidential envoy for climate, appeared on camera Monday to speak with BBC Arabic, where he decried the "massive emissions consequences to the war," adding, "But equally importantly, you're going to lose people's focus. You're going to lose certainly big country attention because they will be diverted. I think it could have a damaging impact."

"I hope President Putin will help us to stay on track with respect of what we need to do for the climate." – Washington Examiner

Gosh Jean, I hate to dash your hopes, but both Putin and Xi have their own plan for world domination and don’t give the proverbial rat’s rear-end about your NWO Great Reset via the imposition of climate control laws and mandates. Although if Russia and China, in their mad quest for world control, manage to launch an effective cyber World War and shut down power grids in the West, you might indeed see a significant reduction in carbon emissions.

Throwback Thursday: Romp ‘em, Stomp ‘em Edition

Throwback Thursday: Remembering the Good Old Days.

Remember when Romper Room was a children’s TV show, not the seat of power in Washington D.C.?


President Biden’s response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine (paraphrased): “Romper, stomper, bomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do.”

We are past the rhetoric and reasonable negotiation stage and headed south fast. It might be time to break out the old Obama Hashtag Diplomacy, demonstrated in 2014 by his State Department Spokesmouth Hashtag Girls:

hashtag harfJen and Marie: State Department tag team Twits

Maybe we can just tweet our way through this latest Russia! Russia! Russia! crisis as well.

I’m guessing that “the promise of hashtag” last time around was Crimea. But Putin seems hungrier this time.

Now might be a good time for a President known for his mean tweets.

Hope Has Two Beautiful Daughters…

For Wing and Feather Day:

"Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all."

~ Emily Dickinson~

As we watch in real time what looks like either the start of WW III or Cold War II (or both), remember this:

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

We’ve felt the Anger, and seen the Courage and pray that they are triumphant.

Did you know that this year February has 10 palindrome dates? Beginning with Groundhog Day - 2/2/22 – and ending with the last day of the month - 2/28/22. Some people however are more impressed with what they call the “222 days” than the palindromes.

The month kicked off with a New Moon in Aquarius ushering in the energy of new beginnings and change, and just one day later, we got to experience what some called the first of the last three 222 days of the century, which occur on February 2, 2022, February 20, 2022 and February 22, 2022.

Here we are: the last of the “222 dates” of the century! As an added bonus it also happens to be a palindrome. Clearly two-day is the best of this month’s numeric offerings.


Don’t waste it. What a great date for a wedding! Or an invasion…whatever.

Regardless of how you feel about today’s numeric offering let’s face it: it is still the dead of winter. Turning one’s face to the sun is not that easy

But still: it is Taco 2’s-day!


Not only that, it’s just so happens that it’s also National Margarita Day!

Tell me that’s not kismet.

President’s Day, 2022 Edition

It’s Presidents’ Day in the USA, which doesn’t mean much anymore other than your USPS mail will be later than normal. Our current president is busy saber-rattling about securing the sovereign borders of other countries while our own remain as porous as a crocheted face mask.

crochet face mask 

 “Our position is very clear in respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states.” (except ours)

Meanwhile in Canada, the man Rolling Stone pined for and wished could be our president


has characterized the most polite government protestors in history as terrorists and white supremacists. He deployed riot police to break it up, impound their trucks and froze their bank accounts. Indeed, why can’t he be our president? Aside from the fact he’s Canadian.

“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” Orwell, 1984

The Canadian sheeple speak (of one mind):

“Why should a govt deal with terrorists? They didn't want a conversation; they wanted to overthrow the government.”

“They aren’t peaceful protestors. They are illegal occupiers.”

You’d think they were talking about the January 6th “insurrectionists.” That’s the beauty of One World Government: they can deploy their “good guys” wherever and whenever necessary. Unfortunately for the OWG, so can the protestors. And they can also just choose to stay home. And not deliver any of the goods you’re accustomed to having.

“Never in my life would I believe anyone if they told me that our Prime Minister would refuse dialogue & choose violence against peaceful protesters.”

Buckle up Buttercup, this year is going to be another rough ride.

Sunday And This Old World Keeps On Turning

Would you look at that, it’s Sunday again - already. I’m planning to spend the day catching up on long-overdue correspondence,


making a pie,

pie somebody has too much time on their handsPie for people with too much time on their hands and who are also OCD

pie crustsPie for the rest of us

Or if you’re really short on time because you plan to watch the entire Daytona 500:

pumpkin pie truck peel outCostco’s ‘peel-out’ pumpkin pie

and going for a walk,

although not necessarily in that order.

It’s the beginning of a new week and I want to remind myself to enjoy these simple things because this old world - it will keep on turning. Whether I obsess over it or not.

For the Good Times

So many artists have recorded this 1968 Kris Kristofferson classic but Ray Price owns it.
