World Hijab Day - A Celebration Of Muslim Authorit…

Someone suggested we make WB the come to place for stories the media will not report. The 48 hour rule is a bit on an obstacle to that, but it's not a bad idea. Here we go then.   Today, February 1st is apparently . This is the latest demonstration of the abject stupidity of liberal feminists and inevitably has its very own hashtag: #StrongInHijab. Most of the usual suspects, the self righteous virtue signallers and professional hypocrites, politicians showbiz luvvies and media sheeple are jumping on the bandwagon, in the name of "Womens' right to choose." What makes this a day which ranks as one of the most sickening displays of virtue signalling is that privileged middle-class Western feminists are lining up to display their multicultural credentials by donning a hijab as a fashionable symbol of liberation. In order to be se…

The Second Coming Redux

William Butler Yeats' poem, The Second Coming, is a post-World War One poem depicting the end of times.  I don't view him as another Nostradamus or prophet.  He lived in troubling times like our own and wondered how it could continue.  It applies to any age.  Below is the poem in…

Health Risks of Drug Cocktails

A Pot to Piss In

It's been awhile, but I'd like to address a problem that's bound to resurface in the near future.  Public bathrooms.   Last year North Carolina was forced to water down it’s "bathroom bill" that required transsexuals (everybody really) to use the restroom based on the sex designated …

Who Made the Decision?  And Why?

Who made the decision not to indict Hillary Clinton?  The (left and media) spin is that her actions never rose to a criminal level and/or that her good intentions excused her " " treatment of national security.    Most would say James Comey, FBI director from 2013 to 2017 made that de…

Hey Democrats, want to win next time?

For a long time Democrats did well by bribing poor voters with things, (carrots), free medical care, free food, free money; free free and amnesty too.  Lots of people want free and gladly voted for anyone who promised to give them stuff, even if they know it's being taken from other people and …

The Late Great Planet Earth

In 1980, I was working with a fervent evangelical Christian named  Doug. Two years previously, Doug was living a hard life of alcohol, drugs, and women. Then he found Jesus and straightened his life out pretty quick.   Maybe I should say "trying to work". Doug could not stop talking about …

The Doors of Deception

One of my favorite themes to write about is character, or, lack of it in people. I love the movie “The Caine Mutiny,” which is a great study of character, or the lack of it. The mutineers were saved from conviction when Humphrey Bogart gets on the witness stand, and the more he speaks, t…

Some things are just too funny not to share.  Shortly after the disastrous election of Trump, former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, put out some videos about how Mexico really felt about paying for the, (as of yet non-existent,) wall.  If you only watched the half-ass effort by SNL to p…
