Hoop's officiating is erratic, ahem

When Democrats Lie


The BIG LIE gambit

Holder's Mustache                           

Outrage # 2,754


President Obama, at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning, said:

Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

This is banal. 

The problem with all such high-horse declarations by Obama is his continual omission of historical context and, in this case, his conflation of the frequent with the rare. The Crusades began in 1095, almost a millennium ago; the Inquisition in 1478, now over 500 years past. When the president says “people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” he should remember that all religions at the time committed terrible deeds that shock the modern sense of morality — given the savage wars between Christendom and Islam, and the religious purifications and civil discord common to all the religious factional strife that played out, violently, in accord with the ethos of the times.  [continued]

The string of invective that invariably floods my brainal zone if I even see a picture of this dickweed poseur, let alone hear what he says, has again left me senseless .  I need a shot of red whiskey.

Look! Buffalo!


When The Red Red Robin
Comes Bob Bob Bobbin Along

A friend who'd just moved to MD from New York in the 60's once exclaimed, as we drove past a herd of cows in the Maryland countryside, "Look! Buffalo!"  Tom Mann grew up in the Washington D.C. area.  He evidently saw his Buffalo, LOL.

The Robin's song still carries me back to my Chicago yoot, even to the point of sensing our neighborhood's  springtime smell and, for some god-only-knows reason, the Jewel Tea grocery store??

Every time the temp here plunges below 32ยบ, as it has now,  we are plagued with Robins.  I say plagued because they dominate our heated watering hole and are the poopiest birds I've ever seen. The railing only looks clean here because I'd just doused it with a bucket of hot water to clean the black and white gobs of birdshit they deposit.  And they're not singing.
