2014 – Then This Post – Then 2015

Resolutions I have but one New Year’s resolution: EFFING WRITE MORE!  I have been remiss, especially in the last month or so.   Review 2014 saw the launch of one of the most riveting and influential blogs in all of Thornburg, Va.  This one, Pedestrian Politics and Economics far outstrips the local competing blog Lawnmower Engines […]

What People Really, Really Want.

Isn’t organized religion a handy contrivance?  There isn’t anything that you can say, not a single phrase you can mutter that can’t be tied into a phrase or idea in any grand holy book.  At the end of this article is a link.  For those entrepreneurs studying for the religion business, this link is a […]

The Weird Shit Humans Do – Part I (Kissing)

The best thing about hosting a political blog is that when I grow weary of covering the political zoo, when I despair of ever finding an actual statesmen in this intellectual wasteland, I can occasionally avert my attention and just have fun.  To wit: Let’s Play Smashy Face! Have you ever sat back and taken […]

Our Tradition

July 1st On our lawn in Thornburg, Virginia. July 4th Same lawn, same flag pole. Every year between July 1st and July 4th, Lyn and I (she is still Canadian and loyal subject of the Crown) stand on the lawn in period costume and beat the tar out of each other.  We call it a […]

Living on a River

A post moved from my other blog. I moved this one here because the wusssies that run my other blog felt it was too commercialized for their taste.  Meanwhile they provide all manner of ways to monitize your blog site as it grows.  If I wasn’t so heavily published there, I’d start a new one […]

See?!?! This is Why I Can't Have Nice Things!

It’s been reported that there is, yet again, an activity and some tools that people are employing for pleasure which have the added benefit of helping them end an unhealthy relationship with something harmful.  And here’s the worst part; they are doing it on their own without supervision and taxation, beyond sales tax, of the […]

Toes in the Water

3 Mar 14 I have been reading The Economist quite a bit lately.  One might think with a name like that you’d find clear-eyed, conservative content; not at all.  It is a product from across the pond and is chock full of some of the most well-worn liberal drivel in print.  Last year they ran […]

Irrational Panic

Read More
“Irrational Panic” is actually an older article.  I have been wrestling with my website for a few days. How do you create irrational panic? Simple. You employ irrational propaganda. I’ll begin with a statement that will be most ignored. I know COVID-19 is a real illness and that for some people it can be deadly. […]

Why the Swedes are doing better than we are?

By Street Politics | May 20, 2020

Because of a fully indoctrinated mindset, many knuckleheads will respond to this article by saying, “You just want people to DIE!” Ironically, it is probably these very same people who need to take what I say for action. Question 1: How is Sweden doing these days vis-a-vis the ChiComm virus? Answer: Quite well, actually. They […]

Are We at WAR? Then Develop Some COURAGE!

By Street Politics | April 20, 2020

How in the name of all that’s holy (if you go in for that sort of thing) did we become the people we now are?  We’ve become so gullible, malleable.  How does a people win a war when these are the qualities of the soldier? The Fronts In this war there are  5 basic fronts.  […]

Are we at War? Then FIGHT!

By Street Politics | April 20, 2020

In his inaugural address, FDR bellowed the phrase, “…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself!” Viewed critically, it was a nonsensical utterance. But everyone knew what he meant so it went over well. And there was validity in the point.  Sadly, Roosevelt would spent the next 9 years exploiting that same fear […]

Caveats for the NOW…and the Chinese Crud.

By Street Politics | March 24, 2020

They say if you live long enough you get to see everything. Well, this Xi TB event has brought about some really mind-blowing revelations about just how stupid people can be. I’m not talking about you [looking askance]. You’re here with me right now so you are brilliant. But just in case you might be […]

HOUSTON ROCKETS – POLITICAL PIGGIES.

By Street Politics | October 9, 2019

Houston Rockets GM Apologizes for Being Right! Just When You Think You’ve Seen It All… Have you read Animal Farm yet? You should. If it’s been a while, reread it and think of today. But while saying that, I will throw out a spoiler at the same time. The pigs in the story are socialist […]

The United States on the World Stage: Slow-Motion Train Wreck

By Street Politics | October 8, 2019

7 October 2019 The Slow-Motion Train Wreck. Today’s foreign affairs headline reflects, in microcosm, our status as the “world super power.” We are no longer that, of course. We are an international train wreck. Specifically, what your are about to read is why I put chapter 16 in Street Politics: It Ain’t Your Daddy’s GOP […]

Don’t Be A Political Pansy…on Election Day.

By Street Politics | November 4, 2018

The tag line I use to promote my book is “Don’t be a Political Pansy!” That is tongue-in-cheek advertising, and as much a joke as it is a challenge. But there really is a breed of political pansy out there. I normally serve up red meat on this site. There is so much we can […]

Ford vs Kavanaugh: #I Don’t Believe Her!

By Street Politics | September 18, 2018

When you don’t have an argument… …have a contrived scandal in your pocket ready to spring on your opponent.  There is no honor in it, but you might just get the worthless win anyway.  When you are without scruples taking the highroad has no appeal. Bottom Line Up Front. I have looked at the Ford […]

Vanity Fair Ought To Be More Careful

By Street Politics | August 26, 2018

One of my future books is going to deal with just how wrong so many people can be about so many things. The reasons for such wrong-headedness are simple: One is immature or unprofessional writers, either out of ignorance or agenda, splashing stupid all over the web. The second is that we, as information consumers, […]
