There are two kinds of writer: those that make you think,

23 Aug

and those that make you wonder…

Here’s the winner…

As he told her that he loved her she gazed into his eyes, wondering, as she noted the infestation of eyelash mites, the tiny deodicids burrowing into his follicles to eat the greasy sebum therein, each female laying up to 25 eggs in a single follicle, causing inflammation, whether the eyes are truly the windows of the soul; and, if so, his soul needed regrouting. — Cathy Bryant, Manchester, England

Go ahead and make your pick…

She slinked through my door wearing a dress that looked like it had been painted on … not with good paint, like Behr or Sherwin-Williams, but with that watered-down stuff that bubbles up right away if you don’t prime the surface before you slap it on, and – just like that cheap paint – the dress needed two more coats to cover her. — Sue Fondrie, Appleton, WI

Til it’s gone…

It’s stunning for an immigrant from a socialist country to hear in the speeches of Democratic Party leaders platitudes taught in socialist countries. Even more stunning is how they resonate with people born in the free world.

At the end of 19th century and the beginning of 20th calls for “equality,” “fairness,” “sacrifices for collective good” and “social justice” aroused communist revolutionaries in Russia and ushered in the U.S.S.R. They demonized and obliterated any religion that interfered with government authority. They erased individualism and entrepreneurship from society. Animosity among ethnic groups was insidiously cultivated.

Here in Canada it’s the Liberals, NDP and the media…

To do the right thing…. after they’ve exhausted all other options…

 

 

Looks as though some are finally getting it.

Why are all the “experts” surprised when economic data comes in at “unexpectedly” worse levels than the experts expected…

…after posting several weeks in a row of “beats”, claims has finally resumed “missing”, as well as rising, posting an increase from last week’s upward revised 368K print to 372K this week, worse than the expected improvement to 365K, and to a one month high. And with continuing claims missing too, the real story continues to be the steep fall off in those on extended benefits and EUC, which declined by a total of 48K in the past week, and down by about half a million in the last few months, and lower by 1.3 million in the past year. This is 1.3 million fewer consumers who can recycle Uncle Sam’s dole back into the economy and iGadgets.

With a Socialist in the White House and Communists at the EU, this should really be no surprise – unless the “experts” are really just useful idiots…

But lets talk about abortion instead…

Springtime in Cairo…

Remember when the CBC and all the liberals were giddy with the “Arab Spring”?  The hipster Twittershpere was atwitter with tweets of peaceful demonstrations, democracy and “rainbow coalitions“.  The Muslim Bro’hood was nothing more than a force force for peace, love and equality…

How’s that working out…

Things are going very badly in Egypt…Contemporaneous with ousting the pro-American Mubarak remnants [of the Egyptian military leadership], President Morsi assumed dictatorial powers. He indicated that he would unilaterally oversee the drafting of a new constitution. There is not much mystery about what it will say: During the campaign, he vowed that Egyptian law would be “the sharia, then the sharia, and finally, the sharia.”

Meanwhile, dissenters and journalists are already being imprisoned and beaten — if not worse. (There are unconfirmed reports that crucifixion is making a comeback.) Terrorist leaders have been sprung from the prisons. The Sinai has become a jihadist haven. Women are attacked in the street if they fail to don the veil. A fatwa that prohibited eating during Ramadan was issued. Christians are fleeing in droves, their churches torched behind them. And the emirs of Hamas are warmly received as brotherly dignitaries.

In other news….Obama backs the Bro’hood…
