    Beautiful! Serene. Maybe some crickets, the creak of the windmill, and a distant coyote.

  2. Ireland service industry has best expansion in the West. Europe overall stinks.

    You know what I notice about this chart? That Saudi Arabia and UAE have the best economies in the entire world right now. Makes me wonder if it’s a coincidence that the Saudi royal family paid for Obama’s Harvard education. Strange that we don’t seem to be doing so well.

    While not of the Catholic faith, this whole “Black Mass” thing seems way out of whack. Here’s the Harvard prez’s response. Wonder if he’s gonna get any more enlightened when it comes to some crazy right-wing foray.

      Everyone involved in this “re-enactment” has fallen prey to a Mephistophelean delusion of a scale I’ve never read about prior to this.

      You cannot “re-enact” a Black Mass like you can a Civil War Battle. There is no “play” version, no “rehearsal”, no “fake” . . . It doesn’t matter if you mean it– It is. Like reciting the Shahada, it either is or is not.

      If anything . .. I’d say a “re-enactment” where people don’t mean it is worse than one where they do— because if people mean it, then they know, to a small extent at least, what they’re getting into.

      These idiots, though . . . They’re gonna end up in a bad place, and they won’t even know why, much less how to get out of that place. Because they refuse to listen to anyone trying to warn them. . .

      • Exactly. That’s just a dodge. And as for the idiot Harvard pres, since when is a ceremony whose main purpose is mocking and counteracting other faiths “just another” religious expression worthy of 1st Amendment protection? How long would we be allowed to have a public “Burn Mohammad” bonfire “reenactment.” You know, for public awareness.

      Less bad news: It’s been moved off campus. Still a dumb-as-sh*t idea, though.

      • Some people never listened to any type of “authority” or else they would have learned not to play with fire less you get burned! Absolutely no good can come form this. Each of them should be FORCED to read “Hostage To The Devil” and maybe a couple of them would change their minds. But not all! Some may feel right at home!

      Tex you do in fact “get it”. The whole idea is extremely bad and is tied to Satanic Ritual.

  6. Huffpo sets us straight about Boko Haram. Has nothing to do with Islam. Somebody should tell them.

  7. Bill Whittle on it being time to ditch the RINOs. Also some good stuff on Churchill.

    I decided to pop in again. I have been busy on and off, with more things occupying my day.

    This last weeked (Mother’s Day) was an absolute blast because I got to spend time with my grandson and son. We took them to a Railway Museum that is roughly an hour from our place. Needless to say the little lad loved his train trip, and at the end of the trip, as the train pulled into the “station”, “That was good”…. and this came from a little one who is about to turn 3. He then role-played the whole thing, which was hilarious, and the role play included collecting the tickets, being engine driver and…. well, we learned how to rock that little engine πŸ™‚

    There is also a lot of things happening in Australia at the present time. I am waiting to hear about the fireworks from the Royal Commission into Union Corruption and slush funds. There is one person who is in fact under investigation…… The other former Prime Minister is under investigation in relation to a hair-brained scheme involving Pink Batts… ah you say… I seem to remember something about that… but you have the wrong country… KRUDD did a copycat and 4 young men died.
