Featured image Ammo Grrrll continues her post-election series in GET A GRIP! Part 3 – VIRTUE SIGNALING WITHOUT THE VIRTUE. She writes: One of the most unnerving aspects of the Great Democrat Freakout has been the astonishing level of nastiness unleashed. Like lynch mobs everywhere, the larger the audience, the more unhinged the behavior of individuals in the crowd. An aging, has-been singer shrieks her fantasy of blowing up the White House. »

Back to the future with Nancy Pelosi

Featured image House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has served in Congress a long time. She has served long enough to oppose Republican presidents going back to Ronald Reagan. In the modern era she has missed only Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon, but she opposed them too! Make no mistake about that. She has served in Congress long enough to oppose both Presidents Bush, father and son, over a period of twelve years. It »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll thinks she may have more in store after GET A GRIP: A SERIES! Part I – Plumberphobia. She writes: With the nationwide leftist psychotic break, my “GET A GRIP” Series could run through at least 2018. Today’s topic, which does not come from The Onion, has attracted quite a bit of comment on the Internet, but even though I am late to the party, I don’t feel anyone »

The Dutch do Trump

Featured image Visiting Amsterdam in 2013, we found the native Dutch to be uniformly friendly and good-humored. I wrote about our visit to Amsterdam in the Power Line posts “Nazi chess,” “The Anne Frank Museum,” and “Impressions.” The Dutch reminded me of Minnesotans. We wanted to blend in, but we were routinely greeted in English. I asked, how did you know I’m American? They just smiled. We didn’t cover a large cross »

She writes: First of all, on this amazing day, congratulations to the entire Trump team.

It was a thing of »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll looks back on a life of AWARDS GALORE!! She writes: Inspired, as I have been so often, by Barack Hussein Obama, I have decided that I have no choice but to give myself some awards.

Featured image Ammo Grrrll invites someone to NAME THAT HORSE! She writes Every Tuesday night, Mr. AG and I play poker with a group of other gun nuts. (Def of gun nut according to leftists: someone who owns a gun. Owning more than one gun elevates that gun owner from “nut” to full certifiable lunatic. Also having more than 10 rounds of ammo.) Poker night includes the tradition of a light meal, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a MEDITATION ON MEDITATING. She writes: Well, New Year’s has come around again in a startlingly short time. About the time I get used to writing 2016 on my checks, it’s time to get it wrong again for a few weeks. So it’s time for some resolutions for self-improvement. Jews also get Rosh Hashanah (literally, the head of the year) in September or October or whenever it »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is thinking about CONFESSIONS (not her own). She writes: Well, thanks to the spectacular results of our recent election, coupled with outrageous premium hikes for something that was going to “bend the cost curve” so far downward that each family would save $2500 a year – Disney World here we come! – Obamacare is front and center once again. Let’s revisit the genius architects of that disaster. We »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll gets in the spirit of the (political) season in MANY HACKS A-HACKING: And a Partridge In a Pear Tree! She writes: If you live long enough, you will see everything again. The last “hack alert” I recall most vividly came from Hillary’s galpal’s husband-like substance, the estimable Mr. Carlos Danger. When his enchanting photographic art (The Pecs and Crotch Period) came to light, he first Tweeted that he »

She writes: After more than two and a half years of writing this column, I believe I know my readers and commenters pretty well.

Featured image Ammo Grrrll notes that they are at it AGAIN WITH THE NAZIS! She writes: In May of 1970 I had helped organize a very large antiwar rally at the University of Minnesota to plan an even larger march to the State Capitol protesting the invasion of Cambodia and the killing of four Kent State students. Suddenly, a crazed-looking fellow rushed the stage and took over the microphone. Nobody on campus »

Liberals Are Losing Their Minds

Featured image A couple days ago I wandered into the Berkeley Bowl Market, which is where upscale hippiedom of Berkeley shops for its fair-trade kale and such. Oh, my! The experience does not disappoint. The people watching was even better than the Whole Foods in Boulder, which was the size of a Home Depot. One of these days I’ll take a hidden video camera for some candid shots. Maybe I’ll wear a »
