      Here’s a postcard for ya, fuzzy; saw this flying today:

      I’ve seen many of them since January, but this is the one of the first decent captures I’ve grabbed.

        There was a home on the way to the store that had a flag expressing similar sentiments for Joe Biden. He took his down.
        However, that Justin is very adept at getting people to be angry with him. I think he has become a liability for the Globalist cause.

    I just saw that Nancy Pelosi, US Speaker of the House, has tendered her resignation. I guess that she will serve out her term. No mention was made of why. Again, I am going to guess that it is something medical and age related, she is 82 years old.

        I don’t think this is what James Madison had in mind.

      Interesting that she did that BEFORE going to Taiwan (I tried to ignore world events on holiday, but that slipped through…)

        The Mainland Chinese were spitting mad, but it did not go anywhere.
        Good to see you back!

        I didn’t think it would.

        Everyone, even the Red Chinese, know Pelosi is a doddering old senile demented bat, just like Brandon.

        Thanks; good to be back.

        What else did I miss? This time of summer, usually nothing happens. I also heard about someone crashing into the Prime Minister’s residence and someone else crashing into the Parliament Hill gate in Ottawa, but that’s not real news.

    Trudeau’s machinations on behalf of his anti oil buddies has backfired. The source is an Indian news service. This will get interesting because these ideological jerks are not going to find a solution before winter.

      Not too far, but far enough. 🙂

      (I went within a long day’s drive away, basically.

      Not far by North American standards, but Europeans would balk. 😉 )

    Happy anniversary! Have a nice and safe trip.

    Best police body cam evah….

    Perhaps you’ve read about or seen videos about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF – a Federal agency) going to the homes of recent gun buyers and asking to see the firearms to verify that the buyer indeed has the weapons. The check the serial numbers to confirm.

    In this instance, the citizen said “sure, I’ll go get it” and closed his front door. He then called the police and said “there’s someone at my front door who wants to see my firearms”. The police body cam video below is the result…..

      Carnivore,
      That is a great video, but it is over a year old. The ATF guy was being a complete jerk to an immigrant wife who brought in the cops.The cops, in turn, were complete jerks to the ATF guy. This was not about the recent practice of asking new purchasers to display their arms. I can’t remember what this was about, but it was fun to watch it happen to a deserving person while the locals made complete asses out of themselves.

        Yeah, I found additional postings of the complete body cam video. What it comes down to is government being government.

      No happy ending? Was hoping for something like locals surround Fed then surrounded by Feds who are surrounded by State troopers. Firing ensues.

    I just saw this. We made it through Covid to have to deal with this? This may be the first time that a depression, that is four quarters of GDP shrinking, that was totally caused by government.

    Landlords are raising rents coming out of Covid and into a recession? Landlords are greedy nuts and worse businessmen.

    Found this post on an advice column. The title says it all:

    “My boyfriend, 68, has almost no ‘mad money’ for fun activities and trips. He lives with his father, 95, and expects to inherit his house. Is it unreasonable to expect him to get a part-time job?”

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/my-boyfriend-68-lives-with-his-father-95-he-has-almost-no-mad-money-to-go-places-and-do-things-is-it-unreasonable-to-expect-him-to-get-a-part-time-job-11659363811

    She’s 65 and retired. His father requires care. Dude is lucky he isn’t married to this nag. Most of the comments are on his side.

      I tripped over a number yesterday. There are forty million unpaid caregivers out there. That is significant. GF wants to go out and play. BF, as a live in caregiver, is going to be consumed by taking care of his Dad as he winds down.
