The snow is over and my hand is healing...

it's a good day in Idaho.

I've heard a rumor that we broke some snow records with something like 25" in the first two weeks of February.

I do know that on our windy day, our road was completely drifted over.  Our wonderful snow plow fairy was able to open the road and we are grateful.

Tripping the light fantastic in style
Meantime, I wish I could tell you I suffered a major sprain of my left hand last Monday when I rappelled down the White Cliffs of Dover, but alas - I tripped over my hair dryer cord.  How boring!  Thinking I had disengaged my huge fluffy slippers with the sequined stars adorning the front, I admit to being wrong.  Breaking the resulting tumble caused an ugly sprain to my left hand.  Typing was almost impossible.  Obviously I am on the mend and will even go to the gym later although I may have to do mainly lower body exercises so as to not aggravate my sprain.

I'm reading The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great DepressionbyAmity Shlaes, and what an eyeopener it is.  In particular, her description of a group of the "intelligentsia" making a junket in 1927  to the Soviet Union and how clever and wonderful they thought Stalin and communism was.

The difference between then and now is that back in 1927 these dopes came home and were essentially ignored.  Now we elect them to office where they are hard at work doing their best to destroy America - both the reality of the country and the idea of the country. 

How did this happen?

I'm asking for your input here, because I'm not going to be one teeny bit shy on giving you my opinion, and it's not pretty. 

People of faith, Christians and Jews, have been unable to imagine or understand the minds of the people who have turned their backs on God.  They've been too busy enjoying the fruits of our great county.  They allowed the Godless ones to infiltrate the schools and poison their children's minds. They have elected them to office on the promise of "free stuff."  They have allowed the Godless ones to redefine depravity as good and good as evil.

They have stood back and swallowed the lie that being created equal means we are equal. They have divorced, contracepted, and aborted babies right along with the most Godless in our society.  They jumped on the SJW diversity train to inequality where some pigs are more important than other pigs. They have stood by when Christians, Catholics in particular, are demonized.

Empty Cortex and the Green New Deal is the result of decades of turning the other cheek.  It's the result of not understanding who these people are.

Listen to what one of the men on the junket to the Soviet Union in 1927 said in a letter to his mother:
"Everybody is poor together. There is much discontent, much regulation of life, but not much terrorism or repression except of the old upper classes." The Forgotten Man
This is what the communists of today want for you.  The collective being poor together is a dream for them.  They, however, will not be joining you in poorness.

My time of referring to them as commie/marxist/libtards has come to an end.  From now on they will be called exactly what they are - communists. 

I see a glimmer of hope that the populace is waking up to the threat.  Will enough people wake up in time?

American Thinker's about how to argue with a commie/marxit/libtard article is missing the most important point...

once you argue with a lefty, you've lost.

From American Thinker

4 Liberal Arguments against the Wall and How to Beat Them

After so many waves of propaganda against the wall, many Americans are forgetting why they originally wanted it.  It has therefore become necessary to expose these bad arguments so that the Democrats do not succeed in subverting the great gift President Trump is offering the American people.  There is an answer to all of these objections, that all Americans, non-experts and experts, can understand. 
No, no, no!

The left does not care about facts. If you engage in this kind of arguing, you are wasting your time and will regret on your death bed that you did so.

Now, the author of that article has got his facts all lined up like militant little ducks, but lefties do not care about facts.  It's okay to gather the facts in case you run into a rational lefty.

Living in North Idaho and having a family chock full of commies who no longer recognize my existence, doesn't give me many chances to practice what I'm about to tell you.  However, this rhetorical arrow is so ingrained in my conversational quiver, that it's completely automatic.

Supposing you are part of a family stocked with in-your-face lefties (I'm sorry) and they haven't yet plucked you from the family tree they keep in the Bible they never read, or if you work around lefties who love nothing more than to bait you - listen closely.

Number One - Have an audience

Make sure you have an audience.  It's no darn fun to allow Aunt Bessie to make herself look silly at the Thanksgiving family gathering if there is no one there to witness it.  In fact, for a lefty, it's as though it never happened.

Number Two - Do not accept their premise and always ask questions

Never accept their premise and pepper them (respectfully) with questions.  Suppose they say to you that building a wall is immoral.  Your response should be something along these lines:
"I'm really interested in hearing your point of view, but first I want to make certain we're having the same conversation.  Perhaps you can take a moment to define what you mean by morality?"
In most cases that will be the end of the conversation.  Now if they happen to come up with some half-baked definition for "moral" you continue with:
"How do you propose we fix the immigration problem?" 
You continue to narrow the focus of your questions until the lefty has backed himself into a corner.

Never, never, defend yourself against a slur against you.  If they call you a "racist" and you defend yourself by spluttering about all the ways you're not a racist you've automatically accepted their premise that you are a racist.

Some debaters might not like this particular approach, but I always answer any accusation with a question like this:
"What makes you say that?  What exactly have I done for you to call me an ugly name?" 
Make them defend their position! 

The left's only real argument for anything is that you are stupid, mean, or immoral. They have no other arguments other than to smear you in order to feel better about themselves.  They cannot be "good" until you've been proven to be "bad."

Remember dear Aunt Bessie at the Thanksgiving dinner?  Force her, through careful questions, to call you mean and stupid.  If you have maneuvered her to do this while you've remained pleasant and respectful, poor Aunt Bessie will look like the bully she actually is.

Practice the Tucker Carlson eyebrow wrinkle  

I love to watch Tucker lead people to their own rhetorical demise.  Ben Shapiro also has the gift.  They always ask question after question after question ad infinitum.

And remember that lefties lie.

They either lie on purpose or they are so uninformed and stuck in their own bias that they actually believe what dribbles out of their pie hole.

In the following clip watch lefty Columbia professor Robert Hockett continue to assert over and over that Empty Cortex never, ever said those unwilling to work would be supported by the taxpayers.  This is classic gaslighting.  And this dweeb actually believes if he says it often enough it will become the truth.  Unfortunately, when it concerns his fellow lefties, he's right.

I have two questions about this clip.  What the hell is that thing perched on top of his head, and what parent would allow their progeny to attend Columbia if this is the quality of professorship on the campus?   Wait - one more question: what kind of drugs is this twitchy dude ingesting?

If you're laughing at AOC - you need to stop and lets make crustless breakfast quiche...

one has nothing to do with the other, but we're going there anyway.

If you are a member of the citizenship of this country who is laughing hysterically over Empty Cortex's green deal, listen up.  Listen closely.

The commie/marxist/libtards are not laughing.  Not even so much as a chuckle. Spy on a few of your libtard friends on Facecrap.  After witnessing them praising socialism, head over to Huff and Puff and read some of the comments.

These morons think the head moron, Empty Cortex, is the future of this country.  Now, considering my age, I really don't give a crap.  I'll be long gone before the left has totally destroyed this country. But you younger people had better get off your duffs and do something to put a stop to this insanity.

Let's not leave out the people cheering post-birth abortion - what we deplorable dirt people call murder. It is not often I am left almost speechless, but the goings on of the past few weeks have managed to almost silence me.

Empty is a having her puppet strings pulled by someone of wealth, power, and influence to further their agenda of power resulting in the destruction of the finest country to ever grace this planet - just as Odumbo was and is.

And, if you don't trust my creds, both Rush and Sean are agreeing with my assessment.

I repeat - do not underestimate the virtue signalling stupidity of the left.  


Keto Friendly Breakfast Quiche

Moving on to a much more enjoyable subject: to wit - saving money and making a nutritiously good convenient breakfast for the freezer.

I grabbed a package of the frozen Kellogg's Breakfast Quiche at Costco because they had a coupon and I thought they sounded good.  They were okay, but I immediately knew I could do way better for way less $$.

Last night I made stuffed mushrooms and knew the one pound package of ground beef I used for the stuffing would be too much. But I also knew the extra would be perfect to make breakfast quiche.

This morning I grabbed my muffin tin and filled each cup half way with the left over seasoned meat from last night.  I added chopped up left over steamed broccoli, added a bit of shredded cheddar, mixed it up, added eggs, and baked. Simple.

Now these quiches are quite large since I no longer own a regular muffin tin (ala Marie Kondo) and this is the one I use for Yorkshire Pudding.  However, each one is only about one and a half eggs, plus about 4 or 5 tablespoons of ground beef, and a smattering of cheddar cheese, so they're perfect for an adult. If you're making these for kiddos, use a regular muffin tin, give them some ketchup, and breakfast is served.

I won't be giving you a slew of exact instructions.  It all depends on what you use and how big the tins.  You can use anything you have on hand - sausage, bacon, different types of cheese, veggies, and on and on.  Don't eat meat? Fine. Just use veggies and cheese.  These are your breakfast quiches so make them anyway you want to.

No muffin tin?  No problem.  Just make them in a pan, cut into squares, and freeze.

The Kellogg quiches cost about $1.44 each.  These homemade quiches log in at about $ .40 each.  Ones made in a regular muffin tin clock in at about $ .33 each.  That's quite a savings for healthy and convenient food. 

In process:


Adding some cheese:


Whipping up some eggs:


After a quick stir they're ready for the oven. I baked them at 350° for about 25 minutes:


Finished:



Cooling before wrapping in plastic wrap for freezer. I added the fork so you could judge the size.


When ready to eat, pop in microwave for about 2 minutes. 



Happy little cherubs
Now - I have wallpaper border to take down in preparation to repaint a room.  Someone (who shall remain nameless) decided it would be a splendid idea to put up a border with fat little cherubs flapping about under a garland of flowers. You can click on the pic to enlarge, but I don't recommend it if you've recently eaten.  It sort of fit the shabby chic style I this person thought was just oh-so-cool.  What I this person was thinking (many years ago) is beyond me. What makes it worse is this used to be my this person's office, but is now my this person's husband's office.  No man should have to work under the auspicious of a bunch of fat dancing angels.

Gov. Northam must resign? Brandon Straka visits the Women's March. Super Bowl Sunday...

lets start with that evil little squid, Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam.

So this guy declares it A-okay to kill a baby after it's born  and not one commie/marxist/libtard bats an eyelash.  But let him dress up in either black face or a KKK costume and suddenly it's, "Off with his head."

Do you not see the weirdness in all of that?

For someone who has endured a lifetime of people dressing up as pregnant nuns on Halloween (some of whom were Catholics) my answer is, "Who gives a sh*t?"

The "Some, But Not All, Women's March"

Brandon Straka, founder of the Walk Away Campaign, did some interviews at the Women's March and did a very good job.

Witnessing the complete lack of logic of the participants is staggering.

I wonder how many of these people (my guess is quite a few) would consider themselves Christians?  All humans are born with Natural Law engraved on their heart.  They don't even have to call themselves a "christian" to know that killing a human being is wrong. Yet these women howl like wild animals for the right to kill their own progeny.



Annual Day of Gluttony otherwise known as Super Bowl Sunday

First off - I'm not at all knocking the gluttony part.  Buried in the Natural Law is, "All chicken wings, jalapeno poppers, guacamole, and hot Parmesan spinach dip are good."

And I'm not knocking the Super Bowl.  If you like to watch, well - good for you.  I may, or may not, watch.
For me, not thee...

If you're one of the peeps who spent an exorbitant amount of money (cheap seats start at almost 3K) to attend, you'd best get there early since only the VIP's get to use the 27 million dollar pedestrian bridge built especially for the Super Bowl. The bridge has been deemed a security risk.  It's been reported that the tax-payers chipped in an extra 10 mil to make sure it would be ready for the Super Bowl.

If you care, I'm rooting for the Patriots.  Just because...

Jussie Smollett's "hate crime" getting way more attention than it deserves...

go home and get on with your life, you wuss!

Untold amount of money and the full force and resources of the Chicago police department is being thrown at the sketchy case of a homosexual comedienne who is claiming a hate crime.  Of course the "hate crime" was, in his account, perpetrated by Trump supporters. But, of course!

This is bullshit!

 Let me tell you why.

I was violently mugged by a black man many years ago.  It never occurred to me to consider it a "hate crime" since the mook was black and I was white.  I was mugged not because I was white, but because I was there at the opportune time.  Not one investigation was ever opened.  Instead the police patted me nicely on the back and sympathized with my plight.  Considering the cuteness factor of the cops, that was A-okay with me.

Judging by the pictures of the wounds Mr. Smollett suffered, I was hurt way worse.  If we didn't live in such an upside down world, the Chicago police should have commiserated with Mr. Smollett and sent him home with a lesson on prudence to wit:  don't go strolling about the mean streets at 2 am. 

For your convenience, I've re-posted a previous account of my mugging which includes some important warnings for women:

In 1977, while living in Houston, I decided to move back to my native Minnesota.  I ended up in a very fun town home converted to apartments in the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis.  The area was in the first flush of being "gentrified", and while I had to put up with hookers walking around at night, the hardwood floors, high ceilings, and original gas fixtures converted to electric, far outweighed a minor inconvenience like prostitutes gathering across the street at night. 

One day at around dusk I decided to take a walk downtown to visit a newsstand and pick up some magazines and paperbacks to enjoy over the weekend.  I stuck some money in my pocket and off I went.

As I was walking down the street, which was fairly empty at that time of day, I saw a man approaching from the opposite direction.  There was nothing particularly alarming about him.  He was dressed in a dazzling white T-shirt and clean jeans.  He was black and he was nice looking.

But something bothered me and I felt alarm bells going off.  That is when I made a serious mistake.  I didn't heed my intuition and cross to the other side of the street, which is really what I wanted to do.  Why?  Because I thought it might "offend" some guy I didn't even know.

Ladies - this is the first lesson to be learned:  Heed your instincts and your intuition because it may save your life.

As he passed me on my left side, he threw his arm out and wrapped it around my throat, knocking me to the ground.  My airflow was instantly cut off and I was unable to scream.  He dragged me across the street and behind a large apartment building.  The parking area was gravel, and I was dragged through the rocks cutting my legs and arms. 

By the time he got me behind the building, I was almost at the point of passing out from lack of air.  Somehow, he stood me up and keeping the pressure on my neck from behind, proceeded to suggest all sorts of fun things he was going to do, up to and including rape.

My windpipe was so bruised by this time I could barely speak let alone scream, so I did the thing any good Italian woman is capable of doing.  I started to talk (as best I could).  And I talked and I talked and I talked until I'm sure this guy thought, "Holy crap, of all the women I could have picked, why did I end up with this motor mouth."  I had a good answer for every suggestion of his, and told him if he let me go I wouldn't call the police - blah, blah, blah. 

At that point, I was certain he probably had a knife and at any moment, he was going to jam it into my side.  I didn't see a knife, but, listen carefully, I didn't know if he was armed.  

After about thirty minutes he agreed to let me go.  As I ran, with my back to him, I was pretty sure at any moment I would feel a bullet strike me.  Surely , this mook wasn't going to just let me go?  He did, and I lived to tell the tale.

Lesson two:  If I had been armed,  I would not have hesitated one nano-second to have used it.  I would have shot to kill because I didn't know if he was armed, and that should be your response in such a situation. 

So when George Zimmerman says, "I didn't know if he was armed", I'm going to believe him, because I was in a similar situation and "I didn't know if he was armed."  part of a post originally published Monday, April, 2012

Ennui...

as relating to the "news" - which isn't really news, but an attempt to keep us all upset and in a dither.

Definition of ennui



a feeling of weariness and dissatisfaction BOREDOM

Synonyms for ennui

blahs, boredom, doldrums, listlessness, restlessness, tedium, weariness

Did You Know?

The French loanword ennui comes from the very same Late Latin word that gave us annoy  inodiare ("to make loathsome"). We borrowed ennui several centuries after absorbing annoy into the language. Ennui deals more with boredom than irritation - and a somewhat specific sort of boredom at that. It generally refers to the feeling of jadedness that can result from living a life of too much ease. The poet Charles Lloyd described it well in his 1823 Stanzas to Ennui when he referred to that world-weary sensation as a "soul-destroying fiend" which visits with its "pale unrest / The chambers of the human breast / Where too much happiness hath fixed its home."

Hmmmmm - the commie/marxist/libtards are certainly annoying and loathsome.


While the commie/marxist/libtards were busy hating me, I painted and put down  flooring in two closets. Much better use of my time.

High dungeon over the SOTU address...

and does anyone really care?

I would guess that 95% of the peeps in the country have little or no idea of what's going on and couldn't care less.  Nancy Pelosi is waving her little gavel around and thinking she's put one over on Trump. She hasn't.

Meanwhile, the Covington High School kids continue to be savaged while the Indian is shown to be a liar. 

And New York lit up the World Trade Center's spire in pink to celebrate the killing of babies.  They call it the Reproductive Health Act.  There's nothing healthy in the bill for the babies that will continue to be slaughtered.

States are rushing in to strengthen their abortion laws in anticipation of the possibility of Roe v Wade being overturned.  So, fear not, pink pussy hat wearing savages - your right to kill your kids will continue on.

When did our country devolve into such barbarism?

Am I worried?  Oh, hell noes - since the world is going to end in 12 years anyways...

A Catholic Perspective: The Covington Catholic Diocese hides; Trump speaks out...

I'm not ashamed of the Diocese of Covington's behavior, but they should be.
 15 hours ago15 hours agoMoreLooking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American”


 5 hours ago5 hours agoMoreNick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!
The Diocese has failed to support their students and have taken down both the diocese website and the high school website.  They closed the school today due to threats of violence by the commie/marxist/libtards.

Really?

Why?

Why are they hiding?

In 2004, the Diocese of Covington, a very small diocese by church standards, held the honor of agreeing to the largest settlement (120 million) for alleged abuse cases as part of a settlement on a class action lawsuit.  It's evident that the diocese had no problem covering for the homosexuals - until they couldn't.

Decades ago, the Catholic Church was invaded by massive numbers of chicken-hawk homosexuals.  Was it a plan?  It certainly looks to be the case. Is it still going on?  It would appear so according to this disgusting report by Church Militant. 

The students of Covington Catholic High School have had their innocence ripped from them.  And to have the school and diocese essentially throw these kids to the wolves is unconscionable.

I'm trying to see both sides of this issue.  Is the Diocese erring on the side of safety for their students?  Possibly. They no doubt have their attorneys and advisers on speed dial. At some point in life, the difficult choices must be made. The students, and that includes the entire school, the  alumni, and future students should not be put in harm's way.  But, how about the archbishop and priests show up at that school and prove that they stand for truth and honor?  How about they emulate the martyrs of the Church who died for their faith?

A Note to Catholics and Non-Catholics

I'm Catholic.

I'm proud to be Catholic.

The doctrine of the Church has not changed one tittle or jot.

The ravings of a lunatic Pope, the homosexulists who are still lurking about, and the happy-clappy liturgy that was foisted on the faithful in the 60's, does not change one single truth as taught by the Church.  You may have to dig a bit to find it but trust me, it's still there.

Ask yourself this question:  Why is the Catholic Church under such constant attack by evil forces?  If it was just a bunch of statue-worshiping whores of Babylon misfits, would the commie/marxist/libtards even care?  Take your time.  I'll wait for you to figure it out. 

I attend an FSSP parish which exclusively celebrates the Mass according to the pre-Vatican II liturgy - what is often referred to as the "Latin Mass."  For that I'm often derided and mocked by other "Catholics."  Do I care?  Nope.  Dopes will be dopes.  Do I think this makes be better than other Catholics?  That's would be another nope.

Matthew 5:18-20

For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. [19] He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. [20] For I tell you, that unless your justice abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
