Bilge — and Happy Canada Day!

This has been a week I have no wish to repeat. I haven’t been sleeping well. Tinnitus is AWFUL. I think my hearing must be getting worse, too. Great combination, eh? My feet hurt because I seem to spend my whole day standing. Granted, it’s a real pleasure to stand in my newly redone kitchen, […]

Military service might not be his calling, but protecting our freedom ought to be the duty of every American. ~Marybeth Hicks

I find a lot of good reading at, and, having read Ms. Hicks columns before, checked into this one. It is, of course, of a Patriotic bent, since that IS the ‘season’ now upon us. Other than the sentence I used as a headline, this will stick with me, I think: On Friday, to […]

Thomas Sowell (why yes, it is Tuesday): “…keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens does not keep guns out of the hands of criminals.”

Dr. Sowell’s column at is written – again – with words better than mine. The ideas and ‘feelings’ and beliefs are exactly in line with my own. Just a tidbit: What all this means is that judges and the voting public have different roles. There is no reason why judges should “consider the basic […]

UPDATED! Longest-serving senator no longer serving – AKA “Senile Old Fool Finally Turns in His Lunch Pail”

Thanks, SoberHorseThief at Bile Offload! SHT has some other headline suggestions, I use here the one I like best. It is said you shouldn’t speak ill of the dead. I wonder why that is, will look into it later. So I’ll let Michelle Malkin speak for me. She writes better than I anyway, it’s why […]

Going-to-the-Sun opens today!

The Great Falls Tribune carries this article, with the headline “Going-to-the-Sun Road to open today.” Here’s the part my hubby reminds me I don’t remember, when I complain about the oppressive, debilitating heat we have this year: Visitors should use caution when in the Logan Pass area because snow banks reach as high as 10 […]

“Memo to the science officer in chief: Having experts advise you on whose ass potentially to kick will not be widely viewed as competent leadership.”

Jonathan Gurwitz at writes about the fawning, panting comparison that was made a couple years back between a certain rather aloof Star Trek character and the Current Occupant. It would be a much funnier column if it was a humorous subject. In case no one has noticed, Spock is a fictional character. Of course, […]
