The Bold, Brave Dog

January 19th, 2017 by G.

Image result for dogs behind fence

When a boy came walking down the alley, a dog ran up to the chain link fence of his backyard and began to bark and vaunt. “I’m just as good as you!” the dog barked. “You’re just a boy!” “You only dare to face me because I am behind chains!” “How dare you imprison me!” The dog went on in like manner.

People who don’t think the Brethren are inspired (ie, receive revelation)…

January 18th, 2017 by Bookslinger

… aren’t receiving revelation themselves.  Otherwise, they would know “how it works.”  (more…)

Symptoms of the Times

January 18th, 2017 by G.

The rich flatter themselves that they are ordinary and the majority pride themselves on their distinctiveness.

The Samaritan in the Age of Obama and Trump

January 18th, 2017 by G.

A certain man fell among thieves, and was robbed and beaten and left for dead.

A Levite walking by took a selfie pic with a concerned face, and posted it to Facebook, with the comment that somebody should do something and it was time to stop the hate. It got lots of likes and re-shares.

And a priest walking by also saw the man, and a took a photo, and tweeted it, #NoMoreRepublicanSpendingCuts. And lo, the hashtag trended, and a celebrity did retweet it. And verily the counter hashtag, #VictimLivesMatter, which shared a clip of a Democratic congressman calling for an end to oppressive policing in the Jerusalem area, also trended.

And a Samaritan passed by, who possessed not even a smart phone, neither did he watch the news. And he had compassion on the man, and bound his wounds, and took care of him.

Who then was this man’s neighbor?

More Practical Mormonism

January 17th, 2017 by G.

Tools are beautiful. Even the words for tools and their parts have a charm to them. Tang, ferrule. They are most beautiful when you know their use because you have used them, such that your hula hoe has some hint of ripe tomato in your mind. (more…)

Who Needs Coffee?

January 16th, 2017 by Patrick Henry

When you have warnings of impending civil war to wake you up?

In North Carolina, the Repub governor lost re-election, so the Repub legislature convened a special session to limit powers of the post.

Democrats nationwide howled w/ justified outrage; as we all know, legislators who dislike a governor should flee state to block quorum…

…facilitate occupation of government buildings by mobs, and have allies execute secret raids on homes on the governor’s supporters.

* * * *
1) cold Civil War
2) targeted political violence, mostly short of murder
3) political violence with murder as the default
4) Civil War II
We’re in Stage 1 now. Stages 2 and 3 are what we’re concerned with: the public getting mobilized. What’d that look like, on Left and Right?

thus David Hines

People forget that the Spanish Civil War didn’t just happen out of the blue. The immediate trigger was quasi-official leftist paramilitaries assassinating Calvo Sotelo, who was the leader of the revolutionary right. And there was much build-up before that.

Arguably Mr. Hines’ own post is itself another omen, however slight.

We fear the demands of children on our charity

January 13th, 2017 by Vader

Julia Yost has an unconventional and sympathetic interpretation of a film I never care to see.

As one whose own children have been a bit problematic, I found this a fascinating insight.

The Past is a Foreign Country, Part [Large Number]

January 12th, 2017 by G.

For those of us who are inclined to believe that the Left is coherent across time and has been winning for many,  many decades, its worth grappling with the Archdruid Report’s latest.
