Featured image Ammo Grrrll has loaded up ONE JUST FOR FUN! She writes: As I say periodically in this column, many of my columns are Tirades of Terror about the headlong race toward the abyss for our beloved country. (Well, truthfully, we do not HAVE a “country” currently, as countries without exception have BORDERS…and we don’t. BUT I’m already headed for another tirade…so, never mind.) While many columns are screams into the »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll wonders: HOW DID YOU KNOW YOUR GENDER? She writes: It is hard not to conclude when listening to leftists discuss “gender” that a mass insanity has befallen our nation. From one loon who speculates that we all “know in the womb” what our “authentic” gender is, we skipped merrily to the notion that all those X and Y chromosomes count for spit and biological sex itself is just »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll considers THE AGE OF AGING. She writes: Whether a friend of America or an enemy, every sentient being in the entire world knows we have a corrupt, degenerate dementia patient in the White House, grifting and grabbing as much as he possibly can for his extensive crime family, before his party can no longer afford to pretend he is FINE. How do we know that that time will »

Cocaine, runnin’ all ’round WH brain

Featured image MSNBC has an update on the location of the cocaine baggie found in the White House over this past weekend. “Multiple officials” are now claiming the cocaine was found near the West Executive entrance “in a much more secure place…near the Situation Room” and next to “where, for example, the vice president’s vehicle is parked.” That is apparently supposed to be a clue and it would explain a lot. However »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll finds the THE RIGHT TO BE SEEN in the penumbras formed by emanations. She writes: I am not a constitutional expert. But my husband, the famous novelist Max Cossack, is. So argue with him at your own peril. And it’ s been a long time since 9th grade Civics Class when we studied the Bill of Rights, among many other things. What I mostly remember about 9th grade »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has SOME THOUGHTS ON PERPETUAL INDULGENCE: She writes: Let me state for the record that I am NOT A FAN of making fun of anybody else’s religion. But I am even less of a fan of our culture’s obsession with “PERPETUAL INDULGENCE.” Which thread I will get to in a minute. But The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence! What a great and accurate name for these obnoxious haters pretending »

A Painter passing through, Senate edition

Featured image University of Minnesota Law School Professor Richard Painter holds himself out as an ethics guru. During the Trump administration, for his numerous appearances on MSNBC, Painter also held himself out as a Republican critic of Trump. When he undertook a campaign for the United States Senate in 2018, however, he challenged incumbent appointee Tina Smith as a Democrat in the DFL primary. Indeed, he ran to Smith’s left. Painter is »

Featured image Father’s Day approaches and Ammo Grrrll is AGAIN WITH THE DADDIES. She writes: Sunday is Father’s Day. In a rush of “premature congratulation,” let me express my profound gratitude to every man I know personally or virtually, who devoted 20, 30, 40 years of his life helping to raise smart, independent-thinking, God-fearing children. They will grow into, or have grown into, law-abiding, tax-paying Americans. And most importantly, young working adults »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll does not need Kantian epistemology to declare I DOUBT IT! She writes: When I arrived at Northwestern University in 1964, it represented the first time in my life that I had ever been away from my parents for longer than a week at Bible Camp. On my first day checking into Willard Hall women’s dorm, I had all my worldly goods with me: a small blonde Samsonite suitcase »

Featured image Having studied Reader’s Digest in her youth, Ammo Grrrll recalls that that IT PAYS TO INCREASE YOUR WORD POWER! (And it pays to save our culture!). She writes: I was raised in a small rural Minnesota town, with two college-educated parents (my mother, two years of Teachers College; my Dad, a Pharmacy Degree on the G.I. Bill). Though my parents were both plenty smart, they were not big recreational readers. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is not telling you to STAY IN YOUR LANE! She writes: Of all the stupid made-up expressions that are meant to shut discussion down and shut people up, “Stay in your lane!” has to be among the most offensive. “Excuse me, Mr. Colbert, or any other robotic loser who says that, but who died and made YOU The Lane Czar?” How ironic that most of the jerks saying »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll recounts A DAY OF LIVING WHITE. She writes: You can’t call me Ishmael, because that is a guy’s name. At least for today. But this is my story. So call me Blanca McPaleface. I am White, okay? I had suspected as much for quite a while. For example, I had to get into college based on my grades and SATs. To my certain knowledge, I have never twerked »

Mongo Santos Maria!

Featured image I can’t say I thought “Mongo Santa Maria” was the funniest line in Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles, but I thought it was funny and it has stuck in my mind for some 50 years. It comes to mind in connection with the indictment of Republican Rep. George Santos on federal charges this week. Mongo Santos Maria! Santos was just elected this past November and his offenses only came to light »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll undermines timeless advice such as LIVE EVERY DAY LIKE IT’S YOUR LAST! She writes: Many things in life do not bear closer scrutiny. For example, the German humorist Otto von Bismarck said long ago something to the effect that “people who love sausage and respect The Law should never watch either being made.” Or, as the Spinal Tap musicians concluded when commenting upon a particularly unlikely and grotesque »

A Dystopian Vision

Featured image Comfortably Smug foresees the future, not so far off, in our blue cities: Imagine living in a liberal city in five years. Cooking a can of bugs over an electric range and drinking bud light. — Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) May 9, 2023 That vision may actually be optimistic, as it doesn’t mention being assaulted if you venture out from your apartment to buy a fresh supply of bugs and Bud »

Featured image Upon further reflection Ammo Grrrll offers A FEW MORE LIFE LESSONS. She writes: One of the sessions I did at Commenter-Con2 was called “30 things I’ve learned so far.” Well, now I have to add a couple.
