Kneel on This

I'm aghast at our President.  His speech and tweets are not helpful, and instead of focusing on things like a promised tax cut, he's wading into popular media food fights.  He's proving himself a buffoon and mental lightweight. And he seems to revel in it, which is downright scary.

That being said, I'm more aghast at the NFL players that can't bring themselves to respect the country via behaving properly during the national anthem.  Poor, spoiled, sheltered, ignorant, selfish pigs.  They live lives that are better than 99.9999% of all of historical humanity, and the exceptional country that is the United States provided it to them.  Yet, we're not perfect, so instead of being grateful for what is here, they choose to "protest."

Here are some real protests, jackasses:

  • If this country is so vile, how in the world could you pay millions in taxes to it?  Hell, your funding this racist hell-hole.  I suggest you stop immediately.
  • Speaking of money, our economy was based on rape of the earth, subjugation of native peoples, and slavery.  How in the world can you accept legal tender from such a vile entity?  
  • When Pat Tillman believed in something, he quit and put his money where his mouth was.  I'm sure Black Lives Matter could use your help a hell of a lot more than your teammates could.  How about you quit?  Like right freaking now. 
Of all the bullshit on display yesterday, here's the one guy that went out there and did the right thing:

Another Duck Opener

Tomorrow arrives yet another duck hunting opener; something I've participated in for at least 45 years straight.  It's hard to believe it has been that long, and it is hard to believe that so many are etched into my head.

This year will be a different one.  We'll be besieged by thunderstorms, which is not at all conducive to duck hunting, especially when one considers that I'll be sitting in a metal boat, holding onto a steel gun.  Thus, safety will rule the day, and at the first sign of lightening, I'll be off the lake.

It doesn't help that I'm also suffering from a doozy of a cold, which makes sitting in the cold rain all the much worse.  

While it is shaping up to be one of my worst openers ever, it is still the opener, and that means you will find me in the swamp.

Good luck, Minnesota duck hunters.

Walmart's "Many Chairs"

In attempt to replicate Coke's "Teach the World to Sing" campaign, the biggest brick and mortar retailer is cramming a "let's all get along" message down consumers' throats:

It was complete with all the stereotypes you'd think, and all of the trendy political groups got dutifully checked off.  

Except one, of course.

There was no representation of Antifa.  If there was, that white guy in the office chair would have totally been getting his ass kicked by some masked punk carrying a black flag.

Swing and a miss, Walmart.

Being Bald Pays Off

Recently the University of Florida published a report that stated that bald men were perceived to be more attractive, dominant, and intelligent.  

I could kind of guess the latter two, but the attractive part is a nice find.  

You can check out a story on the research here.

All you full head of hair guys can read it and weep!

Ben Shapiro Drops the Mic on Abortion Debate

The older I get, the more abortion really rubs me the wrong way.  I think it is because of what I've learned, which is definitely a factor of age.  I've learned a lot of human biology and what constitutes viability.  I've learned a lot about how abjectly racist the practice of abortion is.  I've learned that this "simple procedure" can lead to mental and emotional issues that can manifest for decades, if not lifetimes.  I've also learned that I have a number of friends that were adopted, and how my life would be far poorer had their biological mothers chosen to abort them.

A lot was written about Ben Shapiro's speech at Berkley, given Antifa's desire to shut it down.  Antifa claims that Shapiro spreads hate, but I think that the real reason they want him silenced that he can mop the floor with core liberal ideology.  

Here's a great example:  

Quick, logical, reasoned, consistent, smart, steadfast.  I so have a man-crush on Shapiro, based primarily on his debate skills.  Just for that reason alone I'd love to see him run for higher office.
