In a Reversal of Roles, Home Intruder Calls Police for Help

So, what do most burglars do when breaking into a house?  Yes, they start stealing things, right? And if they become aware of the home owner returning home, what do they do?  Hopefully, they leave quickly! But that’s not what happened when a man in Portland, OR, broke into a home there.  Instead of going for the family silver, he went for – the shower!  And in the process of showering, he somehow became aware […]

US Legal Tender – ie Cash – Not Accepted Without ID on FL Turnpike

I don’t know when you last drove on one of the toll roads operated by the Florida Turnpike Authority, but believe you me, it can be an expensive experience.  What do they do – pave the roads with gold? Anyway, so there you are, pulling up to the ticket collector’s box, and you’re due to pay maybe a $7 or greater toll.  The good news is that the Florida Turnpike website says Customers can pay […]

Don’t You Have to Pass an English Test to Become a Citizen?

Don’t You Have to Pass an English Test to Become a Citizen?

Answer me this, if you can. First, only citizens can vote, right?   Okay, so that’s a no-brainer question.  We all know the answer to that.  You have to be a citizen to vote. Second, foreign immigrants have to pass an English language test to become a citizen, don’t they? Yes, they do.  But don’t just take my word for it.  Here’s the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website that states, under eligibility requirements (to become […]

Baa, Baa, Rainbow Sheep - A More Politically Correct Nursery Rhyme

Baa, Baa, Rainbow Sheep – A More Politically Correct Nursery Rhyme

You might remember the nursery rhyme Baa, Baa, Black Sheep Have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, Three bags full. One for the master, One for the dame, And one for the little boy Who lives down the lane. An innocent enough ditty, and one I’d always thought to be related to the fact that black sheep are rare and so have a more valuable wool than normal white sheep – or at least […]

Shameful DE Human Rights Commission Ruling Overturned

Shameful DE Human Rights Commission Ruling Overturned

Time for some straight talking and clear thinking, folks.  Unless you’ve had your head in the sand for a decade or more, you’ll know that any type of ‘Human Rights’ or ‘Race Relations’ or ‘Equality’ commission or board or other quango group is appallingly biased and myopically focused not on free, full, and fair rights for all, but instead obsessed with finding often imaginary slights and affronts that may possibly relate to certain minority pressure […]

Political Correctness Infects the Navy (Old News, but....)

Political Correctness Infects the Navy (Old News, but….)

Okay, sadly there’s nothing particularly new about how all our armed services have shame-facedly capitulated to the overwhelming force of political correctness. After all, the two main reasons the Fort Hood muslim terrorist was so successful (13 killed, 29 wounded) were : (a)  Because soldiers aren’t trusted with firearms.  Yes, read that again slowly – we don’t trust our soldiers with firearms, even on their own base. (b)  Because the terrorist was a muslim terrorist.  […]

What’s Wrong With This Picture – Columbia U vs ROTC

We all go through various phases in our lives.  The terrible twos.  The teens.  Perhaps a mid-life crisis.  Maybe even dementia.  But surely the worst of all stages is as we exit the teens and become fully empowered with all the rights of adulthood that society chooses to bestow upon us, but none of the maturity and sense with which to use our new rights. The picture, taken from this NY Post article, illustrates a […]

News You Don’t See : Swiss Reject Gun Control

I bet you didn’t see a headline in your local newspaper, or a lead story on television news this week about the Swiss rejecting a plan to restrict the ability of their citizens to lawfully own and keep fully automatic weapons in their homes. Amazingly, a French website tells us what our local gun hating media prefer to pretend did not happen, in an article headlined ‘Swiss overwhelmingly reject plan to tighten gun control in […]
