Hypocrisy, much?

The so-called “Extinction Rebellion” protests that have swept Europe in recent months came to Germany’s capital, Berlin, on Monday.  A camp was set up in a park to accommodate hundreds of protesters. Unfortunately for the holier-than-thou, “pure” Extinction Rebellion activists, who (among other things) are protesting the use of fossil fuels such as gasoline or diesel, the camp needed electricity.  Did they use batteries?  Like hell they did!  A Twitter user caught their hypocrisy on video, for all the world to see. Yes, that’s a generator!  They came to protest fossil fuels, among other things, and then proceeded to burn such fuels themselves so

Suicide??? YGTBSM!!!

So, according to news reports, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide last night . . . while on suicide watch in prison. Yeah.  Right. Folks, I served as a Federal prison chaplain.  I was trained in exactly the same way as a corrections officer, alongside them in the same training institution, because there would be times when I’d have to function as one.  I know more than a little about suicide watches, and I’ve been exposed to my fair share of them.  You can read a little about them in this Slate article, but there’s a lot more to them than that. Basically, on suicide watch, everything and anything that

Doofus Of The Day #1,048

Today’s award goes to some red-faced Green protesters in England.  A tip o’ the hat to reader Snoggeramus for the link. Bungling climate change activists chanted slogans and banged drums outside a London office block today, only to discover the energy company they thought was based there has long moved on. Protesters from a group called ‘Reclaim the Power’ picketed what they thought was the office of gas plant firm Drax in London’s Moorgate this morning, closing the usually busy road for hours and causing fury among local workers. But their chants aimed at upsetting Drax’s bosses were in vain after

I smell a rat (and a cheese)

I note that a new record has been set for the world’s most expensive cheese. An artisan blue cheese sold for over $16,000 at an auction in Spain, shattering the Guinness world record for the most “expensive cheese in history.” In August 2018, 15 different restaurateurs from across the country met for an auction of 5.78 pounds of Cabrales cheese from the Valfríu cheese factory — one of the strongest blue cheeses in the world, Guinness said in a Thursday press release. Attendees kept raising their bids during the seemingly endless gathering — until no one topped the $16,223.99 offer proposed by Iván Suárez,

I resemble that . .

How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.

I’m not surprised that no-one in the mainstream media seems to be commenting on former Vice-President Joe Biden’s latest excuses . . . but I am very disappointed.  You may be sure that if a Republican candidate had used the same words, about the same actions, he’d be flayed up one side and down the other for evading the issue.  (Let me repeat what I’ve said many times in these pages:  I’m neither Democrat nor Republican.  I vote for the person, not the party.  As far as I’m concerned, a good person who has the strengths I look for in
