Featured image Ammo Grrrll recounts MY WOKE WEEKEND. She writes: I have been so impressed with the wondrous advice of Saint Anthony of Fauci – “don’t get masks, they will do no good and, besides, the medical folks need them; DO get masks, now they are essential; wear TWO masks; in a restaurant, wear your mask from the door to your table; then, when your food arrives, take a bite and then »

Deep meaning of Chris Cuomo

Featured image It is somehow big news that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo advised his brother (f/k/a the luv guv) on how to stay afloat amid the flood of sexual harassment allegations that brought him down. AP covers the story with two reporters on the case here this morning. The actions taken by CNN’s Cuomo threaten CNN’s reputation as a legitimate source of news! The AP reporters extract this hilarious quote from our »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll knows the supply chain has not made even the slightest dent in the surplus of DELIBERATE, WILLFUL IGNORANCE. She writes: There is no shame in ignorance per se. If you don’t know something, you can ask elders, mentors, parents, teachers, older siblings, pastors, or a librarian and find a variety of answers sufficient to come to a conclusion, make a decision, or do further research. But as I »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll remembers: THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS – March 2020 to April 2021. She writes: When you have lived for 75 years upon this planet, you think you have not only SEEN everything, but have had enough experience to ANTICIPATE what might come next. But I have to just straight-up confess that I did not, no how, no way, anticipate the fact that a good 20-30 percent of »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll waves BYE BYE, BONNETS. She writes: You can only imagine the vast experiential knowledge a short, elderly woman raised in the ’50s in a small Minnesota town has of street gangs. I do know from West Side Story that “when you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way, from your first cigarette to your last dying day.” Those lyrics alone should suggest just how vicious the gangs »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll draws on her professional experience in NO COUNTRY FOR SMART WHITE MEN. She writes: C’mon, MAN! I JUST got my decorations for National Pronoun Day taken down when along comes TGWMCGAAD – Thank God White Men Can’t Get Awards Anymore Day. Make it stop, make it stop, PLEASE, GOD, make it stop! So before I quote, recap (okay, crib) from a very good article in Daily Wire by »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll reflects that everybody must get credited in GIMME CREDIT. She writes: Something there is in the human spirit that really hates failing to get credit for a minor good deed or accomplishment. Remember the classic Seinfeld episode where Elaine gets credit for a “Big Salad” that George actually paid for? Things like that do not only upset self-absorbed neurotics! Let’s face it – it rankles to have someone »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll laments THESE THINGS WON’T COME THIS WAY AGAIN. She writes: I got to thinking about this topic when I proposed an outing to my bestie here that involved several different stops. (No, absolutely NOT the kind of outing in which it is revealed that Superman now has switched teams, or at least plays for both. I would have thought the flamboyant skin-tight outfit – WITH a cape, no »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is inspired by a number of faith traditions in FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST…She writes: The Patriarchy took one right in the crotch recently when the brave bold lunatic of a governor of California took a break from his maskless dining at fancy restaurants to sign a bill into law that mandated that in stores with over 500 employees, children’s toy aisles may NOT be segregated by »

Shamala: The real thing

Featured image I want to add a few notes to my comments in “Fakin’ it: Shamala edition.” Herewith, as William Buckley might have said, 10 additional notes and queries: • “The most important thing is honesty. Once you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” The quote is attributed to various wits. It gets at an eternal aspect of democratic politics. Kamala cannot fake honesty. She cannot fake sincerity. Her fakery is »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll declares HOLY, UH, COW!! IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I AM 75. And she has not arrived at this milestone without lessons learned. She writes: I had a wacky friend some time ago who kind of freaked out when he turned 25. He went into a deep depression because, he explained, “my youth is over.” I tried to convince him that he had YEARS yet, if not decades, to be »

A classic Kinsley gaffe

Featured image I think John Kerry committed a classic Kinsley gaffe in an interview with French broadcaster BFMTV. Seeking to reassure the French audience about President Biden’s intentions in light of the new AUKUS submarine deal, Kerry explained that Biden “literally had not been aware of what had transpired.” That is an explanation that might be more broadly applied to much of what Biden himself says and does. John Kerry admits in »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has noticed W GONE DAFT. You know who she’s talking about. She writes. First of all, I want to thank every single person who comforted me last week with such kind words on the loss of my father. It meant more than you will ever know. I had been busy with the anticipation of that event for weeks and missed some important issues. To wit: Every conservative commenter »

Don’t fake cry for me… [with comment by Paul]

You talkin’ to me?

Featured image Does it matter that Joe Biden is operating at some fraction of his original mental capacity? That he has half a mind to be president? We might be more confident in assigning blame for the fiascos and catastrophes over which he presides, but even if he were firing on all cylinders we’d still be in trouble. His minders in the White House daycare operation know what he would have wanted. »

At the Justice for J6 rally

Featured image I believe that Vice News reporter Tess Owen snapped the classic “There’s a bunch of bros here” photo of a few faces in the crowd among the dozens attending the supposedly fearsome “Justice for J6” demonstration in Washington on Saturday. Byron York provides the larger context in his Examiner column “Insurrection hype.” There’s a bunch of bros here. They declined an interview and said they were “just tourists”🧐 pic.twitter.com/ZsIImTXsFn — »
