Bill Whittle: Does the gun-loving USA lead the world in murders?...

not by a long shot.  

From Youtube:
The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we're not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world.
The top US cities for murder have something in common.  I'm sure you can figure it out.

National Handwriting Day

is today.

January 23rd has been designated National Handwriting Day by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA)

I'm very fussy about my pens and penmanship. Since spending so much time on a computer, I've noticed a decline in my ability to think while writing by hand.  I tend to get lost in the middle of sentences, or even words, so it messes up my penmanship.  Not acceptable.

To counter the problem, I've started to type my letters in Word, print them out, and copy by hand so I can concentrate on my penmanship.

Spelling?  My spelling has become so atrocious since spell-check entered my life that I'm truly ashamed. We won't get into commas here.  I'm sure my mother was stalked and terrorized by a comma when she was pregnant with moi.


To make matters worse, it seems schools will no longer teach cursive to students.  Really?  Aren't they dumb enough yet?   The elites think "keyboarding" is more important.  We used to call that typing class.

I was taught Palmer Method handwriting.  I still think it's one of the most lovely for everyday writing.

Obama Schedule || Friday, January 23, 2014

All times eastern

Live stream of White House briefing at noon

Mychal Massie tells us what he really thinks of Obama and his wife...

epic!

Visit Mychal at The Daily Rant
But for all of Obama’s lies told in his speech and as infuriating as his openly declaring he would neither honor nor be constrained by the Constitution, the single most infuriating act of shameful disregard for America was his loathsome wife throwing excrement in the face America’s military families.

I was angered to the point of feeling the veins bulge in my neck. As I sat in my study not only did my anger not dissipate but it grew in intensity.

That Obama would allow his miserable, contumacious, America-hating wife to display such blatant disrespect for the families of those he allowed to be murdered in Benghazi and those he allowed to be murdered in Fast and Furious is unforgivable.

So I did the following video. I made a promise to the wife of Tyrone Woods that I would never let America forget his sacrifice and the sacrifice of those who were murdered with September 11, 2012.
Everyone who views this video should be as angry and appalled as I was and am by the Obama woman’s moral opprobriousness.

The accompanying video is not presented with my usual reserve. I do not apologize for being angry when a wanton infidel who gives new meaning to usufruct and throws excrement in the face of our military families who have suffered lost.
(I had to look up usufruct.)

Palate cleanser needed...

after watching just a portion of Odumbo meeting with YouTube "stars."









Live Feed: Odumbo being interviewed by YouTubers Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green...w/Update

because nothing says class like green lipstick.

By the way - I heard President Ribbon Cutter will not meet with Netenyahu in March

Update:  

Forgive me.  I can't watch anymore of this.

WTHell? Muslim Call to Prayer Broadcast at UCLA?...

how about broadcasting a rosary, too.

This is nauseating.

Posted by Jim Hoft on YouTube:
This video was taken in front of the student activities center on the north side of the UCLA campus near the athletic field off Sunset Boulevard. Frida's Islamic call to prayer.
Hat Tip Avi
Yeah, I know.  Something else I can't do anything about.  Down girl...

Kerry plays the fool in France...

and brings along washed up James Taylor to sing "You've Got a Friend" to Hollande.

People died violently at the hands of Islamic crazies, and we offer up James Taylor? It just doesn't get anymore trite and moronic than this.

Here's some pics that could use captions.

You can see more (if you dare) at The Daily Mail.

Bill Whittle: Multiculturalism Caused the Paris Attacks...

indeed it did.





Here's a whole bunch of stuff we can't control...

as my friend Larry, over at Acts of the Apostasy, says, "Not my circus, not my monkeys."

I can't do anything about Pope Francis (bless his heart), saying really stupid stuff.  Should I be worried about the possibility of him possibly leading souls to hell?  Nope.  Because my motto is:  "Let God sort it out."

How about the dopes in Boston chaining themselves to barrels of cement in the middle of a Boston freeway?

 Another no. I do feel sympathy for those stranded and inconvenienced by the dopes, though.

Call to Islamic prayer being broadcast at Duke University?  (Are they experiencing some form of Stockholm syndrome?)   I don't go to Duke and if I did, I would be leaving.

Do I advocate sticking your head in the sand and avoiding all news?  Absolutely not.  It is imperative for you to know what is going on and view it through the lens of history in order for you to make rational orderly decisions about your future.

So today, I will do at least one thing that will bring more order to my life.  This month's challenge is to bring order to all important papers in my life. 

Do you need to do the same?

Here's a handy guide to get you started:

Organize Your Important Household Papers:

Trust me when I tell  you that if you bring order to your life, you will be better prepared to understand our turbulent world.

What do we truly control?...

my recent thinking on this is - not much.

Everyday we are assaulted through news sources, both mainstream and alternative,  about all the goings on in the world. I would contend that close to 100% of what is going on is stuff we have absolutely no control over.

And yet many of us (you may call me guilty) spend untold hours perusing all these sources as though our lives depended on knowing everything, down to and including what our favorite entertainers had for breakfast. 

If the news is leaving you feeling out of control, it may be time to cut back on what you suck into your head.  

As part of my ongoing plans to declutter and simplify, I'm going to declutter and simplify my writing.  That means fewer words and fewer posts.

You see - the only things we can really control is ourselves, and our immediate surroundings. 

I suggest as an antidote to make this the year you take control of the things you can truly control.  A life that is humming along in an orderly fashion is a lot less likely to be overwhelmed by an increasingly out-of-control world.

Think of ways you can simplify your life. 

I'd say more, but I'm already over my word limit.  More tomorrow.
