Diversity is code for chaos...

it's a  benevolent sounding word steeped in virtue signaling which actually causes social strife rather than getting along.

What happens when cultures blend and adapt is that commie/libtards begin screaming "cultural appropriation" to maintain racism and conflict. 

The next time someone spouts off about "diversity", ask them what diversity means to them. I guarantee you that everyone you ask will have a different opinion on what it means.  How's that for diversity?

Or Google "diversity."  I did. Guess what happened?  I made it up to page 20, which equals two hundred articles, and still did not see one article that had anything except positive crapola to say about diversity.  I don't call that very diverse. 

And always remember that diversity never includes white people - in particular white males.

Are conservatives living in their own bubble?...

just a thought for Friday.

Not sure how it got to be Friday already, but it has.  Sigh

Anyhoo, I was out and about yesterday running errands.  I wore my MAGA hat necklace.  Not apparent in this photo is how sparkly and bright this pendant is in real life.  It's a bit like wearing an LED headlight on your chest.

At Home Depot three women commented on it and every one of them asked what "MAGA" meant.  It would be an understatement to say I was rather startled by the question.  When I answered, "Make America great again", they said, "Oh, yeah - that's right."  I went through the same drill at Ross and the beauty supply.

Are you ready?

Every one of those 9 or so people voted for Trump and didn't know what MAGA meant without being reminded.

The peeps I hang with didn't have to be told what it meant, but they're all political junkies and/or conservatives like I am.

It got me to thinking that when we say that most people are not interested in the impeachment hearings, what we're missing is that most people are not interested in any aspect of the politics of this country and are woefully uninformed.

We've formed our own little bubble of interest and have failed to realize that most people don't give a damn. And the commie/libtards who spout off with goofy anti-Trump crap are just parroting what their commie/libtard friends or the fake news tell them without really being all that interested.

So when I see "civil war" being bandied about, it makes me wonder who in hell is going to show up for a war they know nothing about.

Local, local, local: Action Item...

with a big thank you to Ann Corcoran at Refugee Resettlement Watch.

From Ann:

Turn off the damn faux impeachment hearing! And, for goodness sake forget about shopping and whether Prince Andrew did something to a blond girl whenever.

The President heard your concerns about refugees being placed in your towns with no warning and no local approval and did something about it! Are you going to let him down now?

For those of you who spend the day reading news to inform yourself, stop reading for 15 minutes and do something—I’ll tell you what shortly.

The President listened to your concerns about having no role in the decision making process about where refugees are placed in America.

He has gone out on a (another) political limb and created an Executive Order back in September with the lowest determination for the number of refugees to be admitted to the US since the Kennedy/Biden/Jimmy Carter refugee program became law in 1980.

And, in that Executive Order, although imperfect, he directed the US State Department to collect approvals in writing from governors and county/city elected officials saying they will opt-in (and accept refugees) so that the federal contractors can get their funding to move the Africans, Middle Easterners, Asians, etc. to your towns.

The deadline is approaching and…

….those approvals are now coming in!

Open Borders Inc. and the federally-funded refugee resettlement contractors are turning the process into a referendum on the President and the Refugee Program and have pulled out all the stops as I have been reporting here for days.
My analysis:

Every county in America is up for grabs!

Will the Vatican meddle in the 2020 election?...

I'm sure they'll try.

Not only do we Catholics have to deal with the loons in our government, but we also have one of the worst Popes ever.  And, yes, Martha, he is your Pope just as Trump is your president.

All I have to know about Francis is that the majority of my family who are not merely lapsed Catholics, but actually apostates, think he's just so so so very humble and wonderful.

Remember this Catholics and non-Catholics - the teachings of the Church have not changed no matter how many commies the pope hangs out with. 

The Remnant's Michael Matt sums it up quickly and succinctly:

 Pope Francis is a mediocre politician...

Why brick and mortar stores are failing:

After doing much research for a better floor wax for my bathrooms, I finally settled on one that I thought would do the job.  So I'm on my local Home Depot site only to be told that, "No, we don't have that at the Coeur d'Alene store, but if you want to drive over to Liberty Lake (15 miles) they have three bottles or..........you can purchase it and we'll bring it over to the Coeur d'Alene store for you.  Well, guess what?  I don't want to drive to Liberty Lake and I'm not in a hurry so I purchased it only to be told that it would be at the store somewhere between Dec 3 to the 6th.

That was over a week ago.  Are you freakin' kidding me?  It's going to take them about 10 days to get a bottle of pre-paid floor wax 15 miles???  I guarantee you that someone who works at the Liberty Lake store lives in either Post Falls or Cd'A.  They couldn't hand it to this employee and say, "How about dropping off this wax at the Cd'A store on your way home?" And, yes, I get it about hours worked, insurance, and all the other pesky things that go along with making that sort of request of an employee. That can all be handled.

These corporate run mega-stores have completely lost the concept of customer service.  They also micro-manage from some headquarters making it impossible for an employee to make a decision (like dragging that wax to Cd'A) that would benefit the company image.

And that, my precious little peaches, is why brick and mortar stores are failing.

It's Monday and you can't fix stupid...

and there's plenty of stupid to go around.

The comment section of this article at American Thinker Hold on There. Civil War Not Necessary has erupted and it's not good for the author.  It's also not a great way to start the week.

The author thinks that all we have to do is vote the miscreants out of office. See, you silly people - it's really simple. No it's not. 

She fails to recognize that the "long march through the institutions" has produced an electorate that is ignorant of history and morally empty.  She also ignores the vast amount of voter fraud due to millions of illegal aliens who are supported by the commie/libtards so they can spout off about "diversity" and call conservatives Nazis.  

This comment stood out for me:


Wow, the title indicates that the author is proposing some novel, clever way to right the ship. But her solution is simply voting in better politicians? Man, none of us ever thought of that (/sarc) 

Seriously? That's her solution? How does that work when the majority of the population comprises foreigners (in spirit), hateful SJWs and brain dead, apathetic know-nothings? Try running for office in my leftist area and see how far you get. 

Voting only works with an informed, moral populace. And ponder that the Founding Fathers didn't rely on a vote of the people to determine if we'd revolt against Britain. They just did it.

Enough!

Let's move on to celebrating Advent.

First a look at the White House decorations for 2019:



I've always been partial to all white/clear lights.  However, in the past few years I've added a few (very few) colored lights with an emphasis on the addition of blue lights.

So - I'm off to write in my journal, make a lovely breakfast, and trim my Christmas tree. 

But first a question:

Lately I've been coming across two words in many of the novels I read.  Suddenly it seems that people are "munching" and "nibbling" their food rather than just "eating."  I guess they're okay kind of words and describe an action separate from actually sitting down to dinner.  I'm starting to like the two words.  How do you feel about "munch" and "nibble."

Let the holiday "fun" begin...

with today's annual stampede to buy more stuff we don't need.

Now if engaging in Black Friday nonsense floats your boat who am I do stand in your way (which would be very dangerous.)

Following closely on today's madness is the annual tradition of hauling out a gazillion totes full of Christmas decorations.  This tradition is universally hated by husbands everywhere.

Many years ago I too had numerous storage boxes stacked in the tool shed and barn.  But something happened that made my life so much better.  I loaded up 90% of that stuff and sent it off to thrift stores.  My rule became "if it didn't fit in the trunk in my bedroom it had to go." Part of that was driven by acquiring a smaller Christmas tree.

That's right. Everything Christmas related, included the vintage nativity figures, tree ornaments, and window decor lives happily in one trunk.  Now I'm not trying to be all scrooge here and suggesting that you erect a bare branch as a Christmas tree, banish gifts, and skip the parties.  But taking some time to think about what's really important may bring some added peace to your life.

So do yourself a favor and when the storage boxes come out get rid of a whole bunch of that stuff.

Advent

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent - a time of preparation for the coming of Our Lord. The epistle for the extraordinary form of the Mass is Romans 13:11-14.
And that, knowing the season, that it is now the hour for us to rise from sleep. For now our salvation is nearer than when we believed. The night is passed And the day is at hand. Let us, therefore cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day: not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ: and make not provision for the flesh in its concupiscences. 
Sounds like pretty good advice to me.

Thankful...

for so many things.

A happy little doggie - not a glamour shot 
Most of all I'm thankful for our wonderful emergency vet clinic just minutes from our home.  Our Frankie doggie erupted in screams of pain about 11:00 pm last night.  After many tests, xrays, and such, it was determined that he had a raging case of pancreatitis.

He's been on IV fluids and pain meds during the night.  I just delivered his home made food and if he keeps a little of it down we may be able to bring him home later today.

I'm exhausted after getting home after 2 am, so I'm also thankful I did 99% of my cooking yesterday.

Breaking:

11:39 am PST - Frankie's coming home!!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

And, of course:

The day before...

Thanksgiving.

There will be many people darting about doing last minute food shopping, whipping up side dishes, and cleaning the bathroom. 


Since we keep holidays very, very simple, I'll spend the day watering, trimming, and washing my houseplants - a job I find very relaxing. I'll also look over the daily journal prompts for December at Quo Vadismake a few side dishes, and do some reading.  Oh - and I'll clean the bathroom.

We're expecting some sort of horrific wind storm that hasn't materialized yet, but since I had the huge trees cut down on the east of the house and the roof replaced, I couldn't care less. Power outage?  Fire already blazing away in the wood stove, Kindle charged, and candles at the ready. (Update: wind ramping up)

If you're traveling please be safe and watch out for the other guy.  Spokane made Daily Mail and Fox News with its 60/70 car pile up on I-90.  This was not caused by some sort of huge snow storm. It was caused by one person who wasn't paying attention and probably driving too fast for the conditions. Word is that a whole bunch of insurance adjusters had to lie down with cold rags on their foreheads.

Over at Ammo.com is a great article on Thanksgiving.  You may want to print it out and read it at dinner.

Is Black Friday Still a Big Deal With People?...

or have they finally gotten wise?

And other random pre-Thanksgiving thoughts.

Participation in a Black Friday event happened only once in my life. It was at Target. It was awful.  It was not worth the effort. It never happened again!

I may check out some deals on Amazon, but that's the extent of my participation in this yearly ode to silliness.

Winter

Daily Mail headline news:  Holidays Hell  Really? Around here we call it winter.  Daily Mail has gone all hard core on ad blocker.  If you want to see their pictures or read any of their goofy stories you must disable your ad blocker. The result is a slowed down glitchy site that flashes and bangs so much it could invoke an epileptic seizure in a susceptible person.  A decision that's sure to cost them many page views.

 The 5 Beep Question

How come our kitchen appliances (coffee maker, microwave, convection oven, et al) beep 5 times when they're finished doing whatever you want them to do?  Why not 3, 4, or 6 beeps?


Finding Good Books

No - not the Good Book, but fun light reading that doesn't contain the "f" word every two sentences and a bunch of graphic sex. So I happen upon the Joe Dillard series by Scott Pratt and loved the characters and the writing.  Then I discover that his wife, Kristy, died of breast cancer at age 55 in early 2018 after 12 years of treatments failed.  After reading a letter posted by his son, I found out that Scott, aged 61, died about 5 months after his wife in a diving accident.
RIP Scott and Kristy

Obviously, I don't know Scott except through his books.  Many of his characters suffer from the same things he and his family have endured over the past decade. But, I was still so very sad and touched by his story. If you like good books check out the Joe Dillard series. Scott also has a bunch of other books that look good too.


A Wheat Free Thanksgiving

Since going wheat/grain free, which isn't really all that hard, a few Thanksgiving adjustments are needed.  My famous herb dressing made with the addition of sausage will be the same except instead of bread I'll be using cauliflower florets. I've made it before and it's delicious. We will be having carbolicious mashed potatoes and corn casserole (a family recipe.)  Since they have no wheat I'm willing to do some extra carbs in a hat tip to Thanksgiving.

A Note About Shadow Banning and the Silencing of Conservatives

Robbery in the first degree...

is what the commie/libtards are doing.

No - I'm not talking about taxation without representation.

I'm also not talking about being waylaid in an alleyway and having your wallet stolen.

I'm talking about having your peace of mind threatened on a daily basis by the vile maggots who call themselves politicians.  And that includes the people who follow and support these awful people.

Gallons of cyber ink is being spilled by main stream media in defense of the indefensible.

Can they be defeated?

Yes.

They can and will be defeated.

As to your peace of mind?

Elizabeth Warren on Abortion Rights...

which she believes are "human rights"

This is chilling.

It's also in complete agreement with the UN declaration on abortion.

What's she's saying is it's a human right to kill another human.

And every single democrat standing on that stage with her is in complete agreement.

Must I remind you that if you are a Christian of any stripe you may not vote for a candidate that supports the killing of babies?

Is Vindman the Whistleblower?...

it seems likely from what little I've seen of this clown show in DC.

It appears that Rush agrees with me:
"Well, that’s the whistleblower. Eric Ciaramella, is CIA. So in my humble opinion – and it's just my opinion and it's only my assumption – and, of course, I could be called as a witness based on this because that’s what these witnesses have. It is my opinion based on learned knowledge following these hearings that Vindman is the original leaker and that Vindman told Ciaramella (who is the whistleblower) who then went over and set all of this up with Adam Schiff," Limbaugh said Tuesday. (Take the time to read Rush's transcript - it's excellent!)
As for me and my opinion I'm appalled at these know-nothing do-nothing unelected government functionaries doing everything they possibly can to protect their own positions. 

This morning, Ambassador Sondland is blathering away about his "feelings"  -furthering my conviction that watching any of this Kubuki theater would turn my brain cells to mush.

You can't legislate morality and who are you to judge...

are these oft bandied about phrases true?

Does believing this lead to repressed, and often not repressed, anger and hatred?

Does hatred and anger lead to unspeakable acts of violence?

Humans are born with an innate sense of right and wrong - a sort of moral common sense. When someone says, "Who are you to judge", what they're really saying is, "Leave me alone to do whatever I wish to do."

They fail to realize that by saying "Who are you to judge", they've just made a judgement against someone.  Their statement is self-refuting.

People today have been steeped, stewed, and marinated in a morose of relativism. Objective truth has been buried alive and is breathing through a straw stuck in it's grave.

I actually had someone declare to me that you can't legislate morality. Anyone with two functioning brain cells knows this is utter nonsense. For instance our laws have made it quite clear that killing another person without just cause is morally wrong and could be punishable from a lengthy jail sentence up to taking the life of the offender by the state. And yet the anti-death penalty peeps call that "immoral." If you can't legislate morality, then if follows there is no morality at all, and all avenues are open to do as you please.

What's really going on is they want their morals, or lack of, to be the impetus behind laws and not yours.  Hence we have a ruling like Roe v Wade which says it's okay to kill a baby. Roe simply corresponds to what the commie/libtards think is moral.

The time to shrug and walk away from such statements is over. It's easy to get these people tangled up in their own web.  Ask questions. 

If someone says to you,
 "You shouldn't force your morality on me", simply say, "Why not?"
Or you could say,
"I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that statement. Do I not have a right to my opinion?"
Invariably they'll counter with, "You have a right to your opinion, but no right to force it on me."
"Is that your opinion?"
"Yes."
"Then why are you forcing your opinion on me? If you're saying only your opinion is right wasn't that your objection to begin with?"

Is living life as a relativist (no truth, but my truth) crazy making?

Can it lead to hatred, anger, and violence?

Yes. (That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it)

Witness what happened at Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Oct. 10th.  I present this with no comment.  You'll have to form your very own opinion.



Which brings me to our Monday thought for the week

If you're engaged in thinking your way to a better life - stop.  Yes, positive thoughts are nice, but sitting around chanting positive mantras will get you absolutely nowhere.

Thoughts follow action.  If you want certain improvements in your life then you must act as though it's already happened.  If you want to be healthier, sitting around and chanting, "I am healthy", won't work.  The act of going to gym or cooking a healthy meal will.  Act as though it was already true.

Don't be confused about prayer...

it's not that hard

Venerable Francis Xavier Nguyên Văn Thuân:
A Simple Way to Pray Always
After my liberation many people said to me: “Father, in prison you must have had a lot of time to pray.” It was not as simple as one might think. The Lord permitted me to experience all my weakness, my physical and mental fragility. Time passes slowly in prison, particularly in solitary confinement. Imagine a week, a month, two months of silence…. There were days when I was so worn out by exhaustion and illness that I could not manage to say a single prayer! This reminds me of a story.

There was an older man named Jim who would go to church every day at noon for just a few minutes, and then he would leave. The sacristan was very curious about Jim’s daily routine, and one day he stopped him to ask: “Why do you come here every day?” “I come to pray,” Jim answered.

“That’s impossible! What prayer can you say in two minutes?”

“I am an old, ignorant man. I pray to God in my own way.”

“But what do you say?”

“I say: ‘Jesus, here I am, it’s Jim.’ And then I leave.” After some years, Jim became ill and had to go to the hospital, where he was admitted to the ward for the poor. When it seemed that Jim was dying, a priest and a nurse, a religious sister, stood near his bed. The priest asked, “Jim, tell us how it is that from the day you came to this ward everything changed for the better? How is it that the patients have become happier, more content, and friendlier?”

“I don’t know. When I could walk around, I would try to visit everyone. I greeted them, talked a bit with them. When I couldn’t get out of bed I called everyone over to me to make them laugh, to make them happy. With Jim they are always happy!”

“But why are you happy?”

“Well aren’t you happy when you receive a visitor?” asked Jim.

“Of course, but we have never seen anyone come to visit you.”

“When I came here I asked you for two chairs. One was for you, Father, and one was reserved for my guest.” “But what guest?” the priest asked.

“I used to go to church to visit Jesus every day at noon. But when I couldn’t do that anymore, Jesus came here.”

“Jesus comes to visit you? What does he say?”

“He says: ‘Jim, here I am, it’s Jesus!’” Before dying, Jim smiled and gestured with his hand toward the chair next to his bed, as if inviting someone to sit down. He smiled for the last time and closed his eyes.

When my strength failed and I could not even pray, I repeated: “Jesus, here I am, it’s Francis.” Joy and consolation would come to me and I experienced Jesus ­responding: “Francis, here I am, it’s Jesus.”

Slogging through the Trump "impeachment hearings"...

does anyone care?

I'm not referring to the never Trumper media cabal who actually think they're relevant.  They're never going to miss a chance to pretend to be intellectuals.  And the people who buy into the whole "Trump followers are Nazis" shtick are just as useless (as in idiot.)

So what's a normal everyday person to do?

You're going to live your life to the best of your ability.  You're going to start your day with prayer, instruct your children,  read a good book, create some art, visit the gym, and cook a lovely dinner. You're going to be kind to the people you encounter during the day - even the crabby cashier at the grocery store.  You're going to stand up for this great republic we call our home and ignore the foolish bleating of the commie/libtards. In short - you're going to be an American!

And to get your weekend started off with a happy allow me to introduce you to 17 year old Nick who was interviewed by Right Side Broadcasting before the Bossier, LA Trump rally yesterday.  I've set the video to start at 2:36, but if it doesn't work right just forward to that time.

This bright and erudite young man may have a future in politics and he'd get my vote.  I might add that everyone Right Side Broadcasting interviewed before the rally was intelligent and well spoken.  They breed them smart in Louisiana. Must be all the Cajun food!

Is Tucker right? The real reason for the impeachment...

maybe.

But, IMO, only partially.

This is really about making sure Donald J. Trump will not be re-elected president of the United States next year - which he will.  And, yes, Martha - he is your president.

The face of the democrat party
A major democrat supporter showed up at the hearings yesterday.  He took time off from flashing his junk at unsuspecting children at some library while pretending to be a journalist to honor "diversity."

Do I need to remind any of you that these commie/libtard maggots are sucking up a very nice salary - including gold plated bennies and insider trading info provided by you the taxpayer to oust a duly elected president??  I didn't think so.
