In Memory, PumaByDesign, RIP, June 30, 2019

Posted by:

 

At this very time one year today our dear friend, Puma, who none of us ever met, spoke to or ever saw in a photograph, was preparing to take herself to the hospital for surgery, a surgery she knew she might not survive.

Sometime in the next 24 hours, she didn’t. We were never able to find out for sure.

A Christian and conservative, and absolutely tireless worker for our Cause, she was also a captive in a hostile household, hostile neighborhood and ...

God Bless America, and the Way They Looked, Why it Matters Now

Posted by:

On this Memorial Day, add this short piece to your Great Awakening file, for it gives you some idea how words and mere looks can scare the bejeezus out of America’s enemies, just in the knowledge that the fight they have started with us will not be over until one of the other side is destroyed. Japan miscalculated. Germany miscalculated.

And now has the American Left. We will be looking at how we can best convey to that, so that they ...

Covid-19, a Report from Bulgaria from an Old Friend

Posted by:

Her name is Maria Georgieva, and I have known her for over 20 years. I last saw Mimi in 2008 just after I began writing at RedState. Their baby, Georgi, was only two or three then. Now her children are 20,18 and 14. For Many Easters I would send them Peeps, those little packages of 100% sugar candy baby ducklings that are guaranteed to rot kids’ teeth out.

Mimi had a prominent sales location at the very prestigious open air market ...

Remember the Hong Kong flu? -AmericanThinker/Carol Brown

Posted by:

Below is a piece by Carol Brown and published by American Thinker, Apr 29, 2020.

I add an editorial comment here, for it is not just an historical comparison of deadly viruses, but both are within living memory for our Vietnam Generation… and for those of us in our 60s-and-70s today, for some reason the ’68 flu sort of slipped our minds even though we had lived through it…perhaps because we were in our 20s then, when we saw things ...

A Sense of Honor the Left Cannot Fathom

Posted by:

“Long Black Veil” was written in 1959 by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin. I first heard it on a Kingston Trio LP around 1963. We had a folk group in those days, and in our neck of the woods, deep mountain Appalachia this sort of song touched a central theme of life in the mountains, a dark fatalism.

It’s a dark story of a man who was with his best friend’s wife when a murder took place in the town and ...

Savo Sound, 1942, and Our Place on the Current Learning Curve

Posted by:

When you get your butt kicked all sorts of lessons from history come to mind. But when that butt-kicking is self-inflicted the analogies narrow

The lessons most learned from the Republicans’ self-immolation in the failure of their Obamacare repeal (sic) in 2017, then hand-over of the House in 2018, are that our own history proves these are sometimes unavoidable, but necessary, losses to point out weaknesses in our old thinking about things, and how we have to change all that if ...
