Welcome back! So… anything interesting happen this week? I hope that you all had a great holiday season, whether you celebrated Chanukah, Christmas, or in Kamala Harris’ case, Kwanwaa. I appreciate all of your patience with me during the last two weeks’ short posts, and we’re back to normal now. I can’t promise I won’t cheat again on my Friday link by using a story from Australia so I can wrap up coding on Thursday afternoon, but you’ll see it a lot less often. This has been another crazy week in Bobville, with big changes for both Sister Babe’s and my job situations (both good but busy), combined with all of the fun of getting to be Little Bob’s unpaid school proctors on his first week back from Christmas Break. But it’s a new year and no more excuses – time to get back to our regularly scheduled TWIRL:
12/29 – Shot: Thousands of Sex Offenders Now Eligible for Early Release Thanks to CA Supreme Court
Chaser: Los Angeles “Superspreader Task Force” Arrest Hundreds At New Year’s Parties
The true tragedy of this is that the same idiots who are fleeing California will turn around and vote for this same garbage to ruin the well-run red or purple states to which they’re fleeing
1/1 – Fighting to close schools so she can vacation in a covid hotspot
This post only has one pic, but other stories that have more from her Twitter feed remind me of the sagelike wisdom of Robert Palmer: “A pretty face don’t make no pretty heart”. And if you’re wondering why the song at the link sounds slightly different than the version you’re used to, it’s the update that Palmer made for his Greatest Hits album
1/2 – Nancy Pelosi’s House Vandalized
In an all too sad personal trend, just a few years ago I would not have hesitated to condemn this. Now I just shrug – if feeling pain personally is the only thing that will get Democrats to condemn bad behavior then so be it. The article also mentions that Cocaine Mitch got the same treatment.
1/3 – Stupid City, Stupid Mayor: Homicide Increases 55% in Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago
We say this a lot, but seriously people – stop voting for this (excrement). Getting people killed isn’t cute or funny.
1/4 – Here’s Proof the Pentagon Must Get Out of the ‘Climate Change’ Racket
I thought that separation of Church and State would be enough?
1/4 – The Exorcism of John McCain – A Rant (Video)
Razorfist gives a seven minute tribute to the family that might have done more to flip Arizona to the Democrats that the Democrats themselves
1/5 – Senator Josh Hawley Blasts Washington Post For “Printing outright lies” About Protesters That Threatened His Young Family In Their DC Home Last Night
I keep saying this, but I sincerely mean this as freindly advice to Lefties: You m ight want to give some serious thought as to where this may lead. Hawley’s wwife & neighbors were nice. You’re not going to like what happens when you harass a family that is not so nice.
1/6 – Dennis Prager’s profound and disturbing meditation about “good Germans”
Not the happiest topic, but you’ll also want to click through and read all of Prager’s article.
1/7 – Perhaps what happened yesterday wasn’t so surprising
Oddly enough, legitimate requests to investigate voter irregularities getting met with sneers of “Shut up, conspiracy theorist!” don’t get received with meek submission. Except from the Vichy Republicans, of course.
1/8 – The Left Slanderously Accuses Trump of Inciting the Capitol Riot
I believe it was Ace who one quipped, “Projection ain’t just a river in Egypt”
Closing out with two from the archives, I remember two of my departed cousins. One died about a month ago. I think he was about fifteen years older than me and we weren’t close, but it’s always sad to lose family. Although the post isn’t about him, it was a gesture by him eleven years ago (and just a few months before I’d meet Sister Babe) that became the inspiration for one of my first long pieces, How a Mix of 70’s Music Helped Me Appreciate Where We Are Today As a Society.
And I don’t know if you follow pro wrestling, but Chris Candido was my cousin (or more accurately, 2nd or 3rd cousin), and he died back in 2005. Chris is probably best remembered as having Sunny (arguably the most popular popular woman in wrestling in the 90s, but hasn’t fared so well herself) accompanying him to ringside, but he made a name for himself as a wrestler, mainly in ECW. I just wrote this post on Christmas Day, and for obvious reasons this only appeared on my own blog & not Flopping Aces. And on that day I shared a story of the coolest Christmas gift I ever got in the short post, Remembering Chris Candido.
Have a great weekend!

I have experienced my first 7 days of 2021 and would like to cancel my subscription.
Linn Wood was highly entertaining so much so he earned the permanent Tweet boot.
When will they begin awarding a golden straight jacket award for members of Congress? Some damn heavy competition for that.
Poor Nancy sounds like she might be about to lose a bet.
So This weeks selection
Some where the squad is playing this backwards
@kitt: 20201 is going to make 2020 look like 2019
Just a pre-emptive effort to eliminate many of the possible causes to impeach Biden by decriminalizing sex crimes. Yeah, they will be fleeing California, Oregon, Washington and New York but will infect the greener pastures with their liberal disease.
I thinks she should be sitting in one of the desks instead of teaching.
It should be condemned, but when it happens to the very people that encourage it to happen to others… well, shit happens. Shouldn’t the report have said “one of Nancy’s homes”? HER home (where she lives) is behind one of those restrictive walls that are so terrible when they are erected on our border.
Did they ever catch those scurrilous villains that terrorized poor Jussie Smollet? Chicago is the only city that can out-murder Chicago.
At least the Pentagon is smart enough to give themselves 20 years before they look like idiots. AOC and Gore think everyone will forget 10 years ago.
Maybe if I had gone into an insane, hate-filled rage over Obama getting elected (not his policies or his agenda, but just about him) maybe I could understand these moral collapses better. As it is, they just look infantile.
Yeah, that was just a peaceful vigil at the Capital Wednesday. In fact, it was mostly peaceful, didn’t happen and was just an idea. BUT, it was righteous. Of course, the WaPo could have done a little investigative work, like watch the terrorists’ own videos… but that would be in violation of left wing journalistic integrity, wouldn’t it?
We have “good Germans” that see the massive violence across the nation and, like those who saw or smelled the extermination camps, just deny it, as if anyone believes they could actually have missed it. Like many of the “good Germans”, who were still committed anti-Semites because that was the imbedded culture, still hate us non-Germans because we won’t think like them.
You know, in all possible seriousness, if we could get liberals to read that one article and do a bit of introspection (even compare the assertions made with non-liberal propaganda information), I feel maybe half of those would learn to understand how others think and feel and maybe not be so full of hatred.
This is the image of the vindictive, hateful left once they get their absolute power. When they focus on an enemy of their ideology, they will relentlessly seek to utterly destroy them. Of course, this is a common characteristic of totalitarian police state regimes.
How did you leave out the “Amen and Awomen” closing to the House prayer?
@Brother Bob: Aside from the typo thanks for the encouragement.
@kitt: He might have been talking WAAAAAAY in the future. Or, even better, YOU took him “out of context.”
@Deplorable Me: Its called sarcasm on my part, there is no way I want to live that long by then they will be digging up this era , who the hell could know what they will make of us. Worship of entertainment hatred of knowledge and skills.
Hey, this may be the first time we’ve trult disagreed! Two big differences: Obama never pretended to be on te side of Conservatives before stabbing us from the front, and 2) the angry tirade is his schtick – he talks about every subject this way. Just roll with it =8^)
@Brother Bob: What I am saying is that McCain turned on Trump because Trump was not a part of the political elite, not a “club” member, not due to his policies. The “hate filled rage” was the reaction of all those who turned on Trump before he had done a damned thing, good or bad.
Of course one can object to Trump if you disagree with growing the economy, strengthening the military and securing the border; not exactly “American” but at least a point of view other than “Orange man bad”.
Believe it or not, I looked for a reason to support Obama. In the end, I determined he was an empty suit and supported McCain. I was extremely disappointed with his turning on Trump and the Republican party. Keep in mind the choice we had; a bombastic ego-monster that claimed to be all-in for America or a proven incompetent, criminal, corrupt liar that has sold this country out every opportunity she got. For any actual American citizen, Trump was the ONLY choice.
Anyway, if in brevity I failed to make my point clear, that was it.
@Deplorable Me: Heh – I thought you were dissing on Fist, not McCain. We’re on teh same page =8^)
Whoever translated the Mayan calendar made a transposition error. They didn’t predict that the world would end in 2012, they predicted it for 2021.
How considerate of the vandals to mask off the bricks before spray-painting Pelosi’s garage door. They must have known how difficult it is to remove paint from bricks.
Something stinks, and it ain’t wet paint.
@Petercat: I will just save the planet again by sending them a 2022 Avon calendar 😉
In order to get an audience for Bidens installation ceremony • Up to 15,000 National Guard Troops Could Be Deployed Around DC on Inauguration Day, also
Thousands of Sex Offenders Now Eligible for Early Release Thanks to CA Supreme Court so they can attend.
@kitt: Will Grampa Groper be in handcuffs so he’s not handling all the little girls?
