 NIALL FERGUSON: First, Biden betrayed the Afghans to the Taliban. Now, he’s thrown Ukraine to the wolves

 The Crowded Road to Kyiv

To retain our deterrence abroad, we must tighten our belts at home, pump oil and gas, start to balance our budget, junk wokeism as a nihilist indulgence, and recalibrate our military.

Clinton involved

 This just keeps getting better and better.  Of course, it hasn't made it to the NYTimes yet, or CNN.  Must just be oversight somehow.  But it's all coming out and we can hope for some consequences to those who engaged in this criminal conspiracy.

Random Thoughts


Random Thoughts for February, 2022

Robert A. Hall

Feel free to post or forward.


I was devastated to learn of the death of Ron “Count” Pittenger of a heart attack on January 25 which he suffered on the Sunday before. He was my oldest marine buddy, circa 1964. He was a folk singer both in the Marines and for a few years afterwards. A Vietnam vet, he served with the advisory team to the Korean Marines. He had just sold his house in Massachusetts (1/14), packed his car and headed to a sister’s in Melbourne, FL where he died. My world will be emptier without him.


The White House has developed herd immunity to reality. --NR


Black Lives Matter is the recruiting arm of the KKK and White Supremacists.


Puberty blockers are child abuse.


The Democrat Party is based on the proposition that there is a free lunch and people will vote for you if you provide it. Thus the current inflation.


“Many suffer from the incurable disease of writing, and it becomes chronic in their sick minds.” –Juvenal


For the vast majority of people, ideology trumps reality.


I do not believe that God approves of fanatics.


We are giving billions of your tax dollars to the folks who aided and abetted 9/11.


Coaching and Carping seem to go together.


Trump was elected by Clinton. Biden was elected by Trump.


Tee shirt suggestion for the Military: Only our congress can defeat us.


“We continue to await the day when ethnic heritage is a family treasure not a resume item. -NR


Why is college so expensive? I read that Yale has the same number of non-teaching staff as students.


Make haste slowly. Diligence is the mother of good luck --Ben Franklin


Old age comes at a bad time. –Enrico Banducci


“As late as 1960, 4 billion out of 5 billion souls earned the old $2 a day. Now it’s 1 billion out of almost 8 billion.” --Diedre Nansen McClosky NR. Three cheers or free markets!


We are doomed because we value appearances and feelings more than competence and ability. –George S.


Is there any country that lets Americans vote if they are not citizens?


"It doesn’t help to shy away from difficult issues because you’re stuck with them. They’re not going away. The best you can do is something worthwhile in the face of them." –Jorden Peterson


I was happy with our SS increase. Until I blew it all on gas and groceries in one day.


US Bank sent me an email telling me I could download my 1099s for the tiny interest they paid me from their site. I couldn’t find them, so called customer service. All I got was an ad. Finally got them by email.


“Patriotism, a sense of duty, and a feeling of obligation are the noblest and most necessary quality of any democratic system.” --Dwight D. Eisenhower. And we have mostly lost them. ~Bob


In 2020, Joe Biden carried 51.3 % of the popular vote and 51.3% of the House Districts. So much for the claim that Gerrymandering controls elections. (Data from NR.)


January 22 we got 4+ inches of snow. Or as we say in Wisconsin, a dusting.


One of our important goals should be to make the FBI non-political again.


I stand with MLK against BLM.


The most misused word in English is “Homemade.”


“I have many flaws but you can’t accuse me of maturing.” –Bill Maher


Any logic that results in anything other than racist is racist. –Denny


From a former staff member: “It has been a long time since we’ve been in touch just for the sake of saying it you were my favorite “boss” to date. … I appreciate your integrity, character and  big heart, you seemed tough but if one took the time to really see you they’d see how much you care about things.

Democrat voter

 A long term Democrat, working man, super supporter of Biden and

Kamala.... has taken the red pill.  And appears on Fox to talk about it.
What he says at the end is very significant.
