This Christmas do NOT let this happen to you!

Sweater vests are bad enough, but the Christmas sweater? Dear Lord! Reaganite republican has photographic evidence!

 

Although, even the Christmas sweater rule has some exceptions, like this one which does not bother me for some reason

Bad Christmas sweater 14

 

I wish I had said that

Western Hero has a quote that sums up intellectuals perfectly

Conservativesonfire had a trenchant comment on intellectuals:

Intellectuals should be locked in rooms and only allowed to pass their written ideas under the doors. Smart people with good common sense would then read and discard most of them while implementing the good ideas far better than the intellectual ever could.

I would be more charitable and put them on an island paradise somewhere out of harm’s way where they couldn’t screw up society by trying to run it.

The wisdom of Franklin

Via the LCR!

Benjamin Franklin had it right. Today I think one can safely say that since the great experiment in self government (republican government), whose concepts were born during the Age of Reason and the Enlightenment and came to full fruition with the American Revolution, the nation founded on the principles contained in Franklin’s quote below has strayed far.

“The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy.” –Benjamin Franklin, Emblematical Representations, 1774

The further we have strayed from the founding republican principles on which this nation was built and grew strong staying true to, the greater our problems seem to grow. We are already in the shadows of a declining nation. The choice we have is to continue on the same path or chart a new one.

Franklin had, wisdom, oh if ONLY our leaders today had that

Because we dare not risk offending anyone

A classic work of of American writing is going to be PC’ed! H/T Bluegrass Pundit

(The Australian) – A PUBLISHER is planning to release a new edition of two of Mark Twain’s classic novels that replaces the racial slurs used throughout the books with less offensive language.

NewSouth Books will release a single volume containing both novels, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, overseen by Twain scholar Alan Gribben, Publisher’s Weekly said. In both, the n-word is replaced with the word “slave” and the word “Injun” is removed.

Just go ahead and whitewash everything, we must not risk offending anyone. Sadly, the “Progressives” wish to do this type of thing to our history as well as our novels. We will soon have nothing but sanitized versions of everything if this is not stopped.

Another case of zero-tolerance absurdity

Combine zero-tolerance with zero common sense and you get…………….

Ashley Smithwick said she had never gotten in trouble before and was surprised when the principal opened her lunchbox and found the knife.

The teen was initially given a 10-day suspension, then received notice that she was suspended the rest of the school year.

The knife in question? A very small knife, one you might use to peel an apple.  So, one stupid, gutless principal might ruin this girl’s life, and her chance at college over this? Take common sense out of the equation, and judgment out as well, and this is the type of thing you end up with. A good kid treated like a common thug.

Bob’s Blogging Blues!

Some good stuff from Old Belvedere!

Well I woke up this mornin’
And all my hits were down
Oh, I woke up this mornin’
And all my hits were down
All my friends are missing
I’m the only one who’s posting now

Santy Claus, Santy Claus
What you bringin’ down
Santy Claus, Santy Claus
What you bringin’ down
I need some linky lovin’
Before I shut this old blog thang down

—Ramblin’ Bob Belvedere, Blogger Mood Disorder Blues

I got me some Christmas Blogger Blues.  The only thing that will get me out of this funk is a little help from my Friends [In The Ether] and some blues…

-I always feel better when I head on over to Three Beers Later for some Jingle Bombs.  ‘Cause, if we don’t laugh at them, the terrorists win.

-Leave it to the Reaganite Republican to lift my spirits with some hilarious cartoons for the season.  Here’s my favorite, which I shamelessly swiped:
