Laughter is the Best Medicine

(D., Lower Slobbovia)

Featured image Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has unfettered John Fetterman. Undoing the Senate’s sumptuary code, Schumer disclosed that staff for the chamber’s Sergeant-at-Arms will no longer enforce a dress code on the Senate floor. Schumer left the neck of the Democratic Party unmentioned, but everyone understands that Fetterman is the inspiration for Schumer’s initiative. Now Fetterman can freely wander the Senate in his accustomed attire of hooded sweatshirt and shorts. Cartoonist »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll memorializes A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SUZANNE DENISE-OVITCH (With apologies and kudos to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn). She writes: First, a Chag Sameach – a Happy Rosh Hashanah – to all our Jewish readers. We Jews celebrate “New Year” twice and it’s awesome that we get TWO official chances a year to resolve to do better. Of course, we can resolve to do better any second of any day. »

Mostly For Laughs

Featured image So here are two short videos that I ran across today, and that I find entertaining. In this one, a woman suggests a possible technical breakthrough in the world of telephones: Who wants to tell her? — aka (@akafacehots) September 7, 2023 Many commenters seem to think she is serious. I think it is obviously a joke that she pulls off very well. This video is a song about »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll contemplates what might be THE NATIONAL DIVORCE. She writes: A few weeks ago, John H posted a hilarious video of the amazing and heroic Riley Gaines calmly eating cereal and not saying a word. Meanwhile, the ninny juxtaposed next to her listed all of her pronouns and neuroses in a sad attempt to be “interesting” instead of just tedious and self-obsessed. It did make one wonder, hardly for »

Featured image You know what Ms. Grrrll is talking about: I AM WOMAN! – AND YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT! She writes: Okay, ladies, and the men who love us – enough is enough. You know, conservatives in general are very nice people. Probably a majority are Christians or religious Jews – undoubtedly with a few Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus thrown in — who try to live by ethical standards including include The Golden »

Phronkly speaking

Featured image Is it something I said? A faithful reader drew my attention to the effusions of former frequent Power Line commenter Phronk Burrito: Perhaps you’ve seen these comments by Phronk Burrito and are just overlooking them: 1. He calls commenters here and other conservatives “filth” — a word search turned up 18 instances within the last month. – You know what filth, you have this in reverse. It doesn’t matter who »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll recalls A FAMILY VACATION TO REMEMBER. She writes: One of the greatest things about my late, great Mama was that she had zero ability to be jaded. She grew up with nothing, achieved a modest middle-class life with some nice cruises and wintering in Florida, but she never lost that “gee whiz” sense of wonder – or of gratitude. I have prayed to emulate that. I have been »

“Poor Cat”

Featured image This video made me laugh. Riley Gaines munches on breakfast cereal with a deadpan expression while watching a lib’s self-absorbed TikTok video. The funny thing, as Riley notes, is that TikTok banned the video even though Riley does not utter a single word. Her only commentary is “poor cat,” which you will understand if you watch the lib woman’s litany: This video just got removed from my tik tok for »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Like a Bergman (almost), Ammo Grrrll offers SCENES FROM A MEDITATION ON MARRIAGE (A mostly-true Spoof and a Parody wrapped in a Satire, some parts made up!). She writes: If you ever had the notion to apply to run an NIH grant experiment in which two cranky, eccentric, married Geezer-American writers were trapped for weeks on end in a 2400 square foot house located in a desert where the morning »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has found them: Offers I CAN Refuse! She writes: Every day, dozens of times a day, my Email In-Box is filled with an infinite number of ways to separate me from my money. I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of a particular brand of jeans called NYDJ. That is an acronym for “Not Your Daughter’s Jeans.” They USED to be made in the U.S. »

Donovan’s brain revisited

Featured image Matt Taibbi formulates a thought for the day on campaign 2024 so far: This race is turning into a parodic repeat of 2016, the difference being the shock waves that rippled across Washington on Election Day that year are already here, with all conceivable counter-measures already deployed. Instead of starting up a Russia investigation leaders hope will end in indictment, this time the guy is already indicted many times over, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll bears GOOD NEWS FOR ELDERLY DADDIES! She writes: You just never know when a piece of good news will bob to the surface in the Sea of Sludge and Despond in which we have been immersed for several years now. It has come to my attention that elements of the Federal Government have come up with a program to raise the self-esteem of retirees. And who is the »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll’s creative juices have been triggered by news of BARBIE, THE MOVIE – You’ve GOT to be kidding, right? She writes: When I first heard about the emergence of a movie called Barbie, I thought it had to be another White Supremacist QAnon Debunked Conspiracy. First of all, who on Earth could play Barbie except Dolly Parton? Blessed by Nature with her Barbie bosom proportions and SOMEHOW simultaneously having »

Argus Hamilton reports

Featured image Binyamin Jolkovsky is editor of the invaluable Jewish World Review. JWR is a little like the Holy Roman Empire. According to Voltaire, it wasn’t holy, or Roman, or an empire. Binyamin is Jewish, but the site isn’t really Jewish or a world review. Binyamin writes at Linkedin: “We warmly welcome everybody.” It’s like the old weekly Conservative Review. I subscribed to Conservative Review for the entirety of its existence. I »

Videos: Skewering “Tolerance” and Leftist Logic

Featured image I don’t keep up with South Park, which is a primary pop culture source for lampooning wokery. Here’s “Tolerance Camp” from 20 years ago (but only posted to YouTube a few months ago) that is right on target (3 min long): The black and white rendering of the classroom is a nice touch. And we also haven’t been keeping up with J.P. Sears enough, who has just released this seven-minute »

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 »
