Welcome back, everybody to Day 17 of the Occupation! Commentary will be relatively light, as the start of the week involved a long weekend trip to Legoland in FL. The unseasonable cold weather was a double edged sword. Where only our first evening there was it warm enough to use the heated pool, it (Along with The Kung Flu Pnemonia and the Boogie Wuhan Flu) kept the crowds down. There is something insanely cool about leaping off of Coastersaurus as the safety gear goes up at the end & hauling a** with your kid back to the ride entrance and getting on the next roller coaster out before it could leave. And on the Ninjago ride we made Master Chen wish that he didn’t exist. Eight times over two days, by my count (but off from our record of 13 times two years ago). Hence this week going a bit light on the commentary. Onward!
1/30 – President Trump’s “The 1776 Report”
Want to see the document that scared Biden* into scrubbing it from the White House’s web site? Thanks to The Schilling Show for posting this.
1/30 – The truth will not set you free. The truth will land you in Twitter jail
This hits close to home. Fellow NJ refugee William Teach (whose web site often links to Flopping Aces) got thrown into Twitter Jail for stating facts.
1/31 – Erasing History.
Firefighters gonna firefight. It’s crucial that we Normals archive the history that The Radical Left is determined to destroy
2/1 – USA Today: You Darned Christians Are Too Threatening To Keep Around
If only there were some historical precedent for bigotry toward certain religons going wrong that we could look back on to see how things turned out
2/2 – Biden Press Office Wants To Pre-Screen Press Briefing Questions
Psaki still would have to circle back with her answer
2/3 – Chuck Schumer Used Violent Rhetoric To Sic A Mob On Two Supreme Court Justices
Would have been nice if Republicans fought back with the same ferocity that Dems use against Conservatives
2/3 – When Centrism Becomes Extremism
While on our vacation I had a chance to read Kurt Schlicter’s latest novel, the 5th book in the, um fictional, series about America splitting apart – “Crisis”. It’s scary how precient he was about what’s happened since.
2/4 – North Carolina’s lt. governor shows how to fight back against a corrupt media
Fair look at his flaws at the end, but make sure that you watch the video. If every Republican had this attitude the Democratic Parry would be over. Or at least the radical wing that’s taken it over would be driven out.
2/4 – KAEPERNICK GETS TAMPA MURAL AND BILLBOARD, THANKS TO BEN & JERRY’S
First off, although I have no memories of the first few years of my life, I can say with total confidence that in my roughly half century on this planet it will definitely be the first that The Super Bowl will be turned off in my house by halftime. Sister Babe wants to watch and wants to see the ads. As for me, what part should I look forward to? Goodell having the Racial Separatist who spoke at Biden’s* Inauguration who will be doing a pregame poetry reading? How about the disrespect to our country during the national anthem? Maybe the stickers on players’ helmets celebrating criminals? Or how about a halftime show glorifying domestic terrorists? Maybe I’ll just tune in for the commercials, and learn which are the latest mega corporations that can’t wait to publicly proclaim how much they hate me. Nah, while I won’t push my boycott onto Sister babe, as soon as she heads up to get ready for bed the game will get turned off.
And my simple response to this post? Please let someone go Cobra Kai on these billboards
2/5 – San Francisco Votes to Rename Schools Named for Founding Fathers
We’ve reached the point where the public school system has officially acknowledged that their main purpose is to leave our children dumber when they leave the system than when they enter.
ICYMI – Yep, even though I’m not watching the NFL anymore, I came up with A Dead Serious Proposal for the Perfect New Name for The Washington Redskins
And of course, in the tweet section I had to give Alexandria Occasio Smollet a shoutout. I’m still not sure if I like this better than Gulag Barbie. And still trying to figure out how to make Gab’s embed in my post. Once I’ve got that nailed down I’ll start migrating off of Twitter as well. Have a great weekend, Comrades!
AOC would probably lie less frequently if she were called out after earlier fibs. Like this one.
Instead, Newsweek leapt to her defense. https://t.co/tYLhYSBF8d

Flashback: Nancy Pelosi praised unionists storming Wisconsin State Capitol
Brother Bob is no longer on Facebook(although you can see his archives there), and is winding down his presence on Twitter, but is ramping up on Minds and Gab, will be there whenever Parler gets back on its feet, and has his biggest presence on MeWe.

So after a modest 6 inches of snow yesterday, its a balmy 8 degrees F (not that commie celsius crap) Sweetie took out the Bobcat and cleared the drive way jiffy quick. Making a pile for the neighbors kid to dig into and sled on.
Some of our kids are now attending real school here, no snowdays they have to zoom, damn they love to make our kids lives suck. In my day we would be headed to a hill with a heavily waxed toboggan to all pile on and head down the steepest hill we could find, then add a snow pile jump so we could be ejected at speed.
Best Ice cream is Cedar Crest, the dark chocolate is heaven in a wafflecone.
So a Crackhead has written a book and rumor has it he got a 2 million dollar advance, any doubt this is money laundering? The only thing this guy did that he was semi-qualified for was fetch bagels I bet the Big Guy counted the change.
AOC is AOC and she will continue to do and say AOC stuff.
@kitt: Not letting kids enjoy snow days is child abuse. I hope that the parents have been responsible enough to report their kids “sick” for the day
Can’t be accurately citing history. Verboten.
Sometime back, on a NYT article about transgenders competing in sports, I offered the opinion that they shouldn’t be allowed to. That was it; nothing more. Three days in Facebook jail.
Even the historic alterations Stalinist Soviet Union committed can be shown. My 74 year old brother come down with COVID. He was prescribed…. you guessed it… hydroxychloroquine. And, he’s all better.
The Nazis were pretty good at vilifying their political enemies and eliminating them, too.
I think they already have been, especially when the idiot Biden is “answering” questions. What we have here is just a few of the pool objecting to the practice. “The White House contended that it has tried to foster a better relationship with the press corps than the previous administration.” Perhaps the media not entering the press room with the sole intention of getting in the “gotcha” question of the day is the key. The Demediacrats in the press corps during the last duly elected President (as in LAST) weren’t there to gather information; they were there to impress their cohorts and destroy Trump. Now they are there to cover up the fact that the idiot Biden is an idiot.
You know Republicans can’t fight back. The Demediacrats simply band together and deny the facts. Democrats, who routinely accuse everyone else of “inciting violence” do it constantly out of sheer instinct. Democrats WORSHIP violence.
Democrats simply seek to destroy everything traditional and replace it with leftism.
:”So, as I said, that speech was the springboard to a successful political career that saw Mark Robinson go from private citizen to North Carolina lieutenant governor in just two years.” It is a shame the Republican elite (or even Democrats) can’t see how hungry Americans are for someone that will stand up to leftist demagoguery. Trump did a great job at it, but the power of a corrupt media combined with massive election fraud is simply too much to withstand. But people that stand up to the liberal media become the leaders because underneath it all, the corrupt, lying media IS the enemy of the people. Hopefully this guy keeps going and going and going.
I never realized being a crybaby millionaire was a right.
Still waiting on the first bit of liberal attention paid to the namesake of Yale University. When will Woodrow Wilson be disappeared? Oh, and Clinton used the Stars and Bars in his gubernatorial campaign. Anything, leftists?
You’ve never had Blue Bell.
Don’t forget, 50% goes to Pops. Those “book deals” are nothing but underhanded ways to make huge campaign contributions to Democrats.
@Brother Bob: Oh no this is run by city liberals that have no fond memories of snowdays their parents bought those cheap blowup inner tubes with handles that blew out 1/2 way down the first bunny hill.
The surrounding area schools had to prove to them that all the teachers were not going to drop dead by in class learning, since August. The Dick tater saying he wants the kids back in school just a co inkadinky.
Not sure one way or the other. It would be nice to do a side by side comparison. Just twist my arm to be judge in an icecream contest, then I twist your arm to judge bbq ribs.
Ah, ah ah. We don’t use the other N-word on my posts. As I like to point out to Lefties who claim that Hitler was somehow right wing, you can’s spell “National Socialist Workers’ Party” without “Socialist”.
@kitt: Out here in VA, Gov. Coonman is saying the right things. That said, I’m sure that Arlington’s Teachers’ Union will continue to find ways to keep our kids from learning in class. I’m at wits end with them. Come fall, Little Bob will be going to Catholic school (assuming he can get in). barring that, if they try going virtual he’ll become a home schooler. Every Monday when he’s “asynchronous” we’re for all intents and purposes his teachers anyway
What I don’t understand is why these teachers that refuse to return to their classes are still being paid. Are their union contracts so locked solid that they can just refuse to teach for any reason?
The teachers in my state personally sign contracts with the school district. Any teacher that would refuse to come back to school when the science shows that children are not particular carriers of the Chinese flu would violate their contract and could be terminated.
And what about states that have school taxes levied on property? Why should anyone be required to pay those taxes for empty buildings, no teachers and no students? There needs to be a mass uprising (peaceable, of course) against paying those taxes.
@Brother Bob: Here there is open enrollment, the schools that are in person can and do accept any student. Those that do not open lose the state portion of school funding for each child that goes to another district.
My Grandkids have always been out of district using my moms address for a better rated school. Still nice to see the lil ones from the elementary school 1/2 block away back on the playground. Oh its GS cookie time again got the shakedown today.
Keep in mind, the idiot Biden signed an EO saying that anyone who fears going to work because of COVID can stay home and draw unemployment. So, even if the union decided all teachers should go back to work, they still have that moron’s EO to hide behind.
