Un-Bless That Chihuahua !!!

Have you heard about the atheists in New Jersey suing an animal shelter in Bergen County in FEDERAL court  with an eye toward closing it down ?

When one of the local atheists visited the shelter to adopt a Chihuahua, she found a Roman Catholic bishop clad in all vestments  in the process of   "Blessing the Animals"--- a tradition that stems from a daily regimen practiced by St. Francis of  Assissi.

The atheists claim that any entity using any amount of public funds is barred by the first amendment to the I.S. Constitution from entertaining our "influencing" in a religious activity of one "sect or cult over another". 

We don't have the figures on what percentage of the Bergen County shelter budget comes from  local taxpayers and what percentage is supplied by philanthropists. But, if it follows the national trend, we suspect the "governmental" donation to the "kitty" is not exorbitant. 

Animal lovers are notorious "suckers" for a big gift to anyone willing to care for, protect and clean up after various puppy dogs, cats and kittens, exotic birds, turtles and terrapins, snakes and snails and abandoned guppies and gerbils !

We can just see a federal judge issuing an order restraining the Bergen animal shelter from saving an Irish setter... Or a St. Bernard or a Russian wolfhound or an Angel Fish.

One thing is for sure, the Chihuahua-haunted godless lady and most of her confrères will be found to be as relentlessly  void of a sense of humor as they are of empathy for lost and abandoned creatures---including humankind.

We should have a laissee'-faire  peace with people who are unbelievers and scoffers. But making a federal case out of an expression of love (however liturgical) MUST disqualify these hateful people from their license as a teeny bit of humanity.

As Todd Starnes says, there is a strong bulwark of protestant deacons in the South, that bless animals regularly--- even when the animal is drowned in barbecue sauce.

No Such Thing ?

My granddaddy Vick told me at a very young age that I should never hesitate to ask a question, because "there is no such thing as a."Dumb" question. And he followed up by saying that even nutty or incomplete answers CAN be informative, if only about the answerer's sources.

But, I think I've found the exception that nullifies Vick's corollary. Leave a comment at the end of this blog if you disagree.

Up in Newark New Jersey they are trying long time Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez for bribery and corruption in federal court The juror selection completed and they were impaneled Monday.

On Tuesday, one of the jurors sent a query to the federal judge in charge of the trial. The juror  requested a transcript of  the Senator's  defense attorney's opening remarks.
In open court, the judge denied this request, ruling that the jury as a whole should establish a common understanding of attorney statements.

Then the same juror had one more question for the judge.

"What is a Senator ?" was the question.  

You may read the story HERE !)

This must be a record low-point in the history of American trial-by-jury history. It might even be globally unique. It is certainly surprising, if not earth shattering, that a talesman weathered the storms of selection and dismissal to be impaneled with such a dearth of knowledge, sense or proportion. 

Under the circumstances, I would crassly affirm that asking a US District Court judge what a Senator " is".... eclipses, in stupidity or vacuousness just about any query imaginable..... Even Bill Clinton's deadpan musing on the true meaning of  the word  "IS"!

I have been touched in my many years by the deprivations suffered by inner-city children to the extent they were unaware of fruit-bearing trees and bluebirds and honeybees.  

But, be it  nescience  or  ignorance, the view here is that this question is disqualifying or maybe even good basis for mistrial.

It will be a long time before this memory fades.

Aroma of $$$$ or Stench of Race ?

Which matters more... Race or Money ?

We all had  an opportunity to come to some reasonable opinion about this question on Friday when Tiger Woods was sentenced to one year of probation for having been arrested while driving his Mercedes-Benz under the influence of, admittedly,  prescription drugs.

Woods did not plead guilty to DUI, but to a lesser charge of  "reckless driving".

This is a special deal for persons of importance in Palm Beach County, where prosecutors  allow persons with special connections in the posh area to take this route...even if a blood test is positive for drugs.

Punishment for driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled drugs is much harsher than Woods received.

So where do the legal elite of Palm Beach County position themselves in the 2017  maelstrom off the equality quest ?

I'm sure that the BLM membership in Ferguson, Missoiri, or Baltimore Maryland would agree that it is obviously not a  RACE deal. 

It's always a MONEY deal.

Inescapable Consequence

Great Britain’s national health service is banning  surgery for smokers and the obese.

The news came to me via The Telegraph, which I read every day because it does not manipulate straight news stories or twist facts to bully or brainwash readers.

The decision was made by executives of the socialized medicine network after a meeting in Hertfordshire.

To support the fiat, NHS managers cited the high mortality rate of obese patients and cigarette smokers during surgery. It has long been accepted knowledge in medical circles worldwide that these two “divisions” of surgical candidates are, after all, the very poorest "pool" in  terms of survival.

In the United States, where it appears that medical patients as well as slavering attorneys are poised in every instance to pounce on any clinician that fails to produce a miracle, we might very well see similar restrictions seep into insurance contracts and healthcare networks’ policies .

The prediction here is that if and when someone in the United States proposes withholding  surgery from smokers and fat people, the first contentious caterwauling from the Uber PC  media will be:

Society's Harvest of Decadence

What does a snot-nosed arrogant conspirator against honesty have in common with a sleazy casting couch bully misogynist ?

They both invaded my consciousness over the weekend and sucked America's social culture to a new, lower status--- today as well as historically.

James O' Keefe, founder of   Project Veritas  disrobed the younger of the two, (Name of  Nicky Dudich),  capturing him on camera boasting of his dirty tricks in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaign, claiming to be "undercover" for ex-FBI director Bob Comey as an "Antifa Punk" as well as Comey's  "Godson" !

Dudich now works for the New York Times  twist-editing videos the same way he did for candidate Obama and  president Obama. AND for  ANTIFA, the conspiracy. This sewer-urchin obviously has no personal truth either. A collection of his forebears told O'Keefe they have no knowledge or acquaintance of Comey.

As an employee of the Old Grey Lady Prevaricator,  Dudich cannot even speak coherently or clearly.

Not foreign, but fifth grade:  "Like I, you know, was, like, really tight with jim. We, like, hung, y' know ?" 

Having honed his expertise as an apparatchik of the Left in its war of disinformation, he now presides over "strategic" videos for the Slimes on  Twitter and Facebook (plus Instagram and Linkedin, one supposes). ALL subversion. And he really knows how to spill the beans on his past and present employers. Check him out HERE!

Dudich  is a long way from Harvey Weinstein (Nicky is still gainfully employed.)  But they are peers in setting a new sub- earthly standard of  tooting the horn of Obloquy  and creating subhuman standards of behavior in the American landscape and social milieu.

No less a source than the New Yorker magazine has come up with a video from the New York Police Department of Harvey Weinstein admitting that he enjoys groping and bullying young starlets as well as seasoned actresses. The New Yorker  called attention to a list of at least 13 women who had stepped out of the shadows to drop a dime on Harvey. Four of his fellow executives and enablers-cum-  accomplices at his companies have resigned and his erstwhile company is hastily changing its name, and probably its stock symbol.

The point here is that there IS and HAS BEEN, for decades a slick, complex, intertwined conspiracy among Big Media, Big Law and Big Hollywood to hide and enable evil bullies above the glass ceilings  and nasty little crooked reporters and editors and the honeycomb  of the mainstream media.

Our playacting ignorance of their essential serial 
 destruction  of the social fabric is a sin for which we will never be forgiven by those who come after us and  face the insuperable task of rebuilding  an honest and trusting society capable of fair and just dialogue.

Whut In The Name Of SAM ?

Well-versed as I am in tracking down ghosts, gremlins and imps, let me share my discovery of a new barely discernible invader.
A few of my friends who are fond of the English language, have joined me in recommending that before a graduate of a journalism college be given a job-- particularly if he or she is 35 or younger-- such prospective employee in the communications industry should successfully complete a rigid course in English grammar and be given a free copy of  Strunk & White's  Elements of  Style !
Just now I shared a "breaking"  story with a very cultured professional artist (NOT a rapper) and she could not for the life of  her grasp whether the subject of the story was in sympathy with a group when he resigned his position---OR if  he had quit because he disagreed with them.
The reporting was that bad. The writing (or exposition if you will) was worse than the reporting. I realized that I had reacted to message board comment on the story rather than to the story as it was presented.
Here we have a situation where the weight and value of the report lay in the person's reason for his resignation. That WAS the story, and THAT was missing.
*(It was about a man who had always wanted to have a trained voice so that he could sing the Star-Spangled Banner before a large audience. That was his heart's desire and he realized it two years ago when he was hired by the
Baltimore Ravens to sing the Anthem at every home game.  The explosion of the big social justice war mixing anti-police bias with anti-patriotic fervor tore this man's heart--- and his dream-- to shreds.)* 
Only an awkward  writer without a vestige of sensitivity or sentiment would not understand the singer's  reaction.
But I stumbled on another scary hypothesis.  If the K-12 government skools are dumbing down our children, is it possible that part of the educationooid agenda is to produce high school graduates more poorly equipped than
GED-earners ? Are they so deaf to  language that even my old city editor Sam Cox couldn't scare Ned's First Reader literacy into them ??
If this is the case, then that explains  why so many of the younger   "centrist" and so-called "conservative" writers and TV anchors were reportedly tutored or home schooled.
They don't have space  or  time for garbage and slanted conspiracies.
It is a horrible thing to think. But I'm stuck with it until some trustworthy soul disabuses me.
Sam Cox didn't go to Harvard or Princeton. But he could quote Strunk and White until your eyes rolled.

Always the HIDDEN

BREAKING NEWS:  The Australian, on Tuesday reported a primary group of Global Warming scientists have announced their "former" calculations are WRONG! They now say that warming is slower and "we may be able to stop it..."

When "Medidiots" raise hell about the United States pulling out of the "Paris Accord" on  man-made global warming, have you ever known them to mention money ?

Have you ever known them to quantify the "gas-emissions" restrictions imposed on the different countries under the  "Accords ?

Me, neither.

As this is written, empty-headed and clueless punditoids  scream about the present administration's  "contradictory" attitude as regards "Paris".

Just putting aside for the moment the fact that the previous administration illegally "agreed" to the international money pledge and emission controls without the advice and consent of the Congress, it is vital to remember that under the agreement the United States would be required to limit GG admissions to a level nearly four orders lower than China, where the GG admissions are more than three times those in the USA.

Obama also agreed to exorbitant payment of trillions of tax dollars over a period of years to come. This similarly, a monumentally exorbitant number compared to Chinese and Russian  penalties.

But the sly and cute feature of the Paris  Two-Step really lies in the amount of money American businesses as well as taxpayers would be required to expend to meet the unreasonable (and one could add unnecessary) "emission" restrictions..

THIS  punishing bloodletting would clearly give all the other nations (especially China) on the planet a huge advantage  in trade cosmetics and balance.

That is why the Dealmaker-in-Cief  has threatened to leave the accord (along with the fact that he is probably personally skeptical of the GW / CC  hoax,

Then, of course there is the looming Sausage Factory  "approval" by Congress. For you can be sure that unlike his predecessor, this president will submit whatever "accord"  comes our way with alacrity. It always comes down to a subversive conspiracy of  "Cherchez L'Agent" doesn't it ?

THIS JUST IN !!!   Charlie Daniels just  Tweeted that he would make a deal with Al Gore !!!  If Al will give up his swanky personal jet (bought with "warming" hoax money), Charlie will "talk to his cows about cutting down on their  flatulence !
