Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right


“Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am
Stuck in the middle with you.”

The impeachment trial of former President Trump is becoming a one-act circus. Your ticket to the circus features a clown car, you know the act where a large group of clowns exit the tiny car that drives around the center ring, and then run around the center ring engaging in some slapstick comedy.

My Removal List Of Elected Officials


Cleaning out the Augean Stables seems to be the new clarion call in Washington DC. I suppose it’s not totally beyond the pale in a city that features Greco-Roman architecture.

There’s never a Jewish space laser around when you need one.

I Love This Fence Outside the Capitol


This fence is my photo of the week. Thanks to Architectus for the photo. Unfortunately, it should have been in place on January 5th outside the Capitol building. This fence would have prevented the launching of a thousand posts, media punditry, and stupid comments from Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer. The impeachment word would have disappeared, as well as hundreds of thousands of comments.

One woman and one Capitol police officer might still be alive if this fence had been in place on January 5th. We wouldn’t have been subjected to videos of violent morons trashing the interior of the Capitol. We wouldn’t have had to listen to morons that were silent for months on violence in American cities that were subjected to mostly peaceful protests. There were a lot of rioters that got their Christmas shoplifting done in those summer months.

From The Police Blotter: Charitable Donations


The presumption of innocence principle applies to jurors. Outside the courtroom, a citizen is free to draw their own conclusions on guilt, or innocence before someone is found guilty, or innocent of a crime by the court. Bail is set to ensure that a defendant that is freed before their trial will show up for the trial.

Oregon is a state that does not allow bail bonds companies. A defendant must make their own arrangements to come up with the money they need to make bail. Some defendants will be refused bail; they may be a flight risk, have a history of FTA (Failure to Appear), or a danger to the community. If bail is set at $100,000 then the defendant must provide 10% of that amount. If the defendant fails to appear in court a family member, or friend that provided the $10,000 is liable for the $90,000 balance. The lesson is this: choose carefully who you endow with bail money.

Let Them Eat Butter!


It’s not the cholesterol that will kill you. It’s the hernia from trying to hold up both ends of the conversation with a perpetually aggrieved social justice warrior. I never associated Land O Lakes packaging with genocide, sex trafficking, or Native women as sex objects. Perhaps I’m clueless, but I’ve always associated butter with a baked potato, pancakes, croissants, scones, muffins, and once in awhile a pat of butter on a steak that was cooked on a wood pellet grill.

I’m not a total Neanderthal. I do wheel out my recycle bin containing my gifts to the recycling gods, placed just so on the altar of the curb on a weekly basis. I will admit that I’m having difficulty memorizing 50 or so new gender pronouns.

Member Post


Almost every major, and several minor, candidate for the Democratic nomination to run for President of the United States has called for dragging a U.S. Supreme Court Justice and along with him the entire country through the mess of an impeachment process based on completely unsubstantiated allegations made by a known political enemy. Such an […]

David Hogg – Goodfella


David Hogg is on his way to Harvard. Little did I know there was a Robert De Niro Elocution Scholarship, as well as grants from the Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Hoax Foundation.
