Hoovervilles of the Great Depression

Hooverville: A crudely built camp put up usually on the edge of a town to house the many poverty-stricken people who had lost their homes during the Depression of the 1930s.

Many of the shanty towns that sprung up all over the nation during the Depression were facetiously called Hoovervilles because so many people at the time blamed President Herbert Hoover for letting the nation slide into the Great Depression. Coined by Charles Michelson, the Publicity Chief of the Democratic National Committee, it was first used in print media in 1930 when The New York Times published an article about a shantytown in Chicago, Illinois. The term caught on quickly and was soon used throughout the country.

Oughta make for some interesting family dinners

The great tragedy of our time is that liberals vote left. 

Virtually every value liberals have held for a century is now held by conservatives and scorned by leftists. Therefore, America, in serious jeopardy of being lost, will be saved when people convince the liberals in their life that the left, not the conservative, is their enemy. 

This process begins by establishing whether a friend or relative is a liberal or a leftist. If it turns out that he or she is a liberal, it is worth engaging in respectful dialogue on the issues of the day. If the friend or relative is a leftist, you can probably only talk about innocuous subjects such as the weather (though not about global warming) or sports (though not about players taking a knee during the national anthem). If you talk about the great issues of the day with a left-wing friend or relative, that could be the last time you talk to each other. He or she is likely to unfriend you not only on social media but also in life. Leftists generally do not dialogue; they dismiss.

"babies start to become racist at just three months of age"

The Arizona Department of Education has crafted an "equity" toolkit designed to teach critical race theory to children, offering a number of recommended readings on the topic. 

The toolkit teaches, among other things, that babies start to become racist at just three months of age. The toolkit insists that babies must be spoken to about race, as "letting children draw their own conclusions based on what they see" leads to racism. It is unclear how allowing children to think for themselves leads to racism.

Some retailers leave mask requirements in place after States lift restrictions

Texas and Mississippi followed Florida’s lead this week and announced they would lift key business restrictions and end statewide mask mandates, but many popular retailers plan to continue requiring customers to wear face coverings in their stores.

I'm with Doc on this one. If a store or business requires a mask to shop there, more power to them. I can take my business elsewhere if I don't agree with it.
And just for the record, while Walmart has a big sign on their windows saying masks are required for staff and customers, I've never been denied entry at the Lafayette store for not wearing one. And as far as Walgreens goes, I've never even seen a sign saying masks were required at this store. Matter of fact, we just switched Lisa prescriptions over to Walgreens last month and when I went in to pick them up, none of the staff were wearing masks either.

New Orleans Archdiocese Asks Catholics to Avoid Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccine

The Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is asking Catholics to avoid the recently-approved Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which it says is “morally compromised” by its “extensive use of abortion-derived cell lines.” 

A gun for The Woman On The Go

The four-inch .22 caliber firearm--fully loaded with five rounds--was discovered yesterday by personnel at the Boone County Jail. The weapon was found among the personal belongings of Amy Natasha Wilhite, 39, who was booked into the facility on February 14 following her arrest by the Columbia Police Department.

They're lagging on this, but better late than never

Drivers who unintentionally hit protestors blocking roads illegally may receive immunity, and protestors may face more severe charges for violent and obstructive behavior. State Representative Ron Gant (R-Rossville) discussed this “anti-riot” legislation on Wednesday in a press release. 

The bill would raise the penalty level for obstructing roads to a Class E felony, with a mandatory fine of $3,000 and the loss of voting powers. Those that unintentionally kill or injure protestors or rioters blocking roads would be immune from criminal charges. Additionally, those who throw objects at others or intentionally intimidates or harasses others may receive nearly a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. If someone throws an object and injures another, they may receive up to six years’ prison time.

US politics have now become a war for survival - for both sides

I've written several articles pointing out that we can't vote our way out of this mess. When the November 2020 elections were stolen - literally, through electoral fraud - the conservative side of US politics was (rightly) furious; but they're talking in terms of winning the next election, and undoing the damage. That's not going to happen. The electoral legislation that the Democratic Party is right now ramming through Congress is designed to ensure that it alone wins elections from now on. Anyone else won't get a look-in unless the powers that be decide to throw the other side a bone or two, to satisfy those they consider dangerous or obsessive. 

This has led several commenters to talk (in so many words) in terms of civil war, armed resistance, and the like. I've said on more than one occasion that I've seen it happen too often in other parts of the world, and it doesn't solve the problem. It merely compounds the misery for the survivors. However, I fear greatly that it'll be inevitable sooner or later, because those who've seized power are adamant that they'll never give it up.

LGBT Propaganda Targets Toddlers

They won’t let your kids read Dr Seuss books, because he has been sentenced to cancelation. No worries; a few books for children meet with liberal approval — like The GayBCs, by M. L. Webb.

The Imaginary Government

We have long been in a post-constitutional democracy, one that recognizes no individual rights, but simply who has the most votes, or, more accurately, the most ballots. It is as destructive to the United States as it was to France, minus the guillotines, for now. 

Driving home the fact of the stolen election is pointless. Everyone knows it was stolen, especially those who benefitted from the steal. They also understand the value of keeping up the illusion of legitimacy. Equal to that value is the importance of never conceding that point. To put a cap on it, two states that were NOT swing states in the 2020 election have had some very interesting findings, Mississippi and New Hampshire.

That boy ain't hooked up right

COFFEE COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man charged with animal cruelty told detectives he cut out a dog’s heart as part of a ritual to remove demons from his Tennessee home, according to an arrest warrant.

Coffee County deputies responded Feb. 12 to a disturbance involving a dog in the Hillsboro area, the warrant states. When they arrived, deputies said they saw a man, identified as Brandon Lankford, who told them he was busy and needed to bury his dog.

‘For The People Act’ confirms it: Our Democracy has officially replaced the American Republic

If there were any doubts that a civil war had in fact been waged in the US, and that the side that “fortified” the 2020 election and redefined the republic as “Our Democracy” triumphed, HR1 should dispel the last vestiges of them. 

he bill, also named “For The People Act” of 2021, passed in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in a 220-210 vote on Wednesday. Only one Democrat was opposed. 

The 800-page bill basically codifies all the problematic practices of the 2020 election into law. There’s an expansion of mail-in ballots and extended deadlines to count them, but also automatic voter registration, a waiver for voter IDs, and nationwide ballot-harvesting, California-style. It also shifts the authority to draw congressional districts from states, criminalizes broadly defined “interference” in elections, and so much more.
