War in Ukraine. It’s Closer Than You Think.

Ukraine has become a three-ring circus. I just watched FOX News criticize, negatively, the comparison of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to Hitler’s aggression pre-WWII. This is pathetic ignorance on the part of FOX. They clearly do not have a firm grasp on history. The fact is that every move the little Russian jerkoff has made […]

The Fed owns you. F**k the Fed!

So far, I’ve been plucking the low-hanging fruit. The truth of each post is painfully obvious. And there is plenty more of that be had. I’ll get to all of it before Election Day. But there are one or two BIG, somewhat complex issues that will require you, if you’re a responsible adult, to do […]

How Pipelines Will Save America…And the World

Before we move on, let’s fix the problems in the previous post. GOP (and state governors and AGs): The first thing you do on behalf of the 401K and IRA holders in your state is to write a simple and straightforward law that bans the consideration of social issues (or ESG or whatever new name […]

Why can’t I play nice with the other kids? For my FB buddy.

A friend penned very important comment at PPPP today. I decided it deserved a full post in reply. I have not used her name as I did not get permission to do so. S: I have read what you have posted along with the links and admire your devotion but…the twice impeached former president is […]

Uh-Oh! Polio! Where did that come from?

Welcome Back Polio! Did you know Polio has been detected in New York? Polio, f**king POLIO! But, we eradicated that generations ago, right? So where might it be coming from? Hmmmm. Wait a moment! Could it be coming in with the millions of illegal aliens invading our country, encouraged by the Democrat Party? Is that […]

Dump Miguel Cardona and His Entire department

This one isn’t high on the list, but it’s an easy out.  Pack your bags, Miguel Cardona.  We’re sending you down. The time has come to end the most expensive and sophisticated organization ever dedicated to the art of mental masturbation in the history of mankind.  No, I’m not talking about the EPA…not yet.  There […]

It’s from Nature.com EDITORIAL 26 November 2018, How some wind turbines hog the breeze The nature.com article brings some interesting points we’ll get into a bit later.

Dump McConnell and McCarthy

In short, killing the goose that lays the golden egg is a viable political strategy, so long as the goose does not die before the next election and no one traces the politicians’ fingerprints on the murder weapon.                                                                                     Thomas Sowell Take a good look at that quote. I said in a previous post we […]

GOP: Do You Want To Win In November? Seriously?

The first quality that is needed is audacity.                                                 Winston Churchill To voters and the GOP, I’ll ask again. Do you want to win in November? Do you want to keep winning? DO YOU?!?! Then THIS time, pay attention to what the hell I am saying. During the 2016 presidential campaign I wrote a book […]

Ethanol: TRY TO WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THIS

Ethanol: It was never a good idea! Some years ago, a pack of virtue signalers, shysters and political whores came together over a truly stupid idea; put food in our gas tanks.  They decided to take our tax money, or to print money depending on what month the checks go out, and give it to […]

The New Mask Mandate: Obey Bitches!

Okay, kids, let’s get something straight.  There is nothing coming from the Joe Duh Regime that is on the level. The most recent misdirection is the new mask mandate. There is no science behind it.  The truth of this is in their defense of it.  The Regime says we need masks back because of the […]

Are You Woke, Woker or Wokest? [eye-roll]

Am I the only one who smirks when supposedly grown adults use the term “woke”? Granted, slang is slang. In that regard who cares if people slouch to the use of a weak term on occasion. But in present discourse people discuss, straight-faced who’s “woke”, who’s “woker” and who still needs to “get woke”. Then […]

It’s a question of the GOP and their testicles.

If the GOP establishment could find one brain cell and one gonad among themselves, this woman would be the party poster child by tomorrow. The party tends to miss so many opportunities. I an effort to appear clever and sophisticated they usually end up as neither and miss the down-to-earth goldmines all around them. Kim […]

Kamala Harris? Historical? I didn’t get the memo.

In what way is Kamala Harris a(n) historical figure?  I didn’t get the memo. Oh, but MJ, you may whine, Kamala is the first woman of color (no one seems to know exactly what color) to be a candidate for Vice President! So? Why should I be impressed? We’ve already had a black president.  We’ve […]

Mask Hysteria: Moving the Goal Posts

It would be swell if the politicians would stop moving the goal posts.  But they can’t.  They haven’t gotten Trump out of office yet.  And Congress keeps announcing more and more money is to be doled out.  So, too bad for you.  We need to keep everything screwed up at least through November. Part 7 […]

Mask Hysteria: Celebrity Trumps Science

In the previous segment we were getting into the mask, celebrity and more phony “science”. Part 6 Then you have people who wear a mask the way my brother (a medical professional) does.  They wear them loose or under the nose. The masks are constantly falling down. So the wearer is constantly fidgeting with the […]

Mask Hysteria: The New Burka

Read Part 4 here. I was hinting that there might be some comfort and encouragement in the realities of COVID-19. Part 5 But, no! You are not to be permitted comfort. If anyone within 100 miles has COVID you must live like a neurotic germaphobe. We must create the same or greater level of distress […]

Mask Hysteria: Politicians and Moral Hazard

Read Part 3 here Moral Hazard is where you incentivize people with the means to do the wrong thing with the rewards for doing it. Politic1ans will always choose the easier, less moral path.  That’s what I meant by politics and money earlier. Bigger COVID numbers mean more money and a chance to beat up […]

Just When You Thought You'd Seen It All…Stupid is Redefined!

By Street Politics | October 27, 2015

TV’s Most Dangerous Night EVER! That’s the tag line for the stupidest thing TV producers have created since Jersey Shore…and it’s aimed at the same audience. I have always tried to avoid being too abrupt discussing religion. I have no attachment to the spirit world, but I know some folks get a little touchy when […]

Is the Bikini the Burka of Western Culture?

By Street Politics | May 28, 2015

NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK BECA– USE YOU AND YOUR COWORKERS PRETEND TO BE OFFENDED BY BODY PARTS WHEN, IN REALITY, YOU’RE NOT. In the civilized West, Americans are hands down the most prudish about the silliest things. It seems hard to believe, but we are so squeamish about the female breast it’s almost embarrassing to […]

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)

By Street Politics | September 30, 2014

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 […]

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!

By Street Politics | March 4, 2014

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

By Street Politics | March 3, 2014

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 […]
