Clicking my ruby shoes together to return to Kansas.


Haven’t been blogging because there’s nothing much to say.  The “West” is doomed.  Fragments of it should survive, and I certainly hope to end up in one of those fragments.  But the hope I had after the rise of the Tea Parties has been entirely extinguished.

Anyway, am leaving tomorrow for an outage job at Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station.  Hopefully about nine weeks.  We (me, brother, sister-in-law) are sharing a rental trailer which probably won’t have wi-fi.  I don’t know the plant policy on accessing the internet from work, and we’ll probably be too busy to do it much anyway.  We’ll be working 4 12-hour days, then one day off.

So, in addition to not having the will to blog much, I may not have the way for a while.  Any of you die-hards are welcome to blog here to your heart’s content.  If you don’t currently have the means, leave a comment and hopefully I’ll see it shortly.

I do feel as if I’ve let you all down.  At the height of my blogging, I felt a closer kinship to many commenters than I ever did to most people I know.  But it seems clear to me that sharing my recent thoughts would not be a blessing to anyone.

Gotta go.  Hopefully most of my analyses are wrong, but…honestly, I can’t remember when that’s ever been true.  God bless you all.

And here’s a pic I just saw a few minutes ago.  It’s pretty darn accurate.

Happy post-holidays!

So yeah, obviously haven’t had anything to say.  Hope your holidays were good.

And apparently the President was just in my county, perhaps Oak Ridge itself.

North Korea!

Beware. He’s everywhere.


It kind of had to be done. I guess North Korea is now going to threaten Mr W, sorry about that.

Sorry for the holiday non-cheer.

Obviously, still apathetic and depressed.  Given that…Happy Holidays!

Also, saw something so true I had to share.  Thanks for IMAO for the assist.

All is proceeding as planned.

My master plan is almost complete.  Soon, my minions.  Soon my transmogrification will come!

And on that day there will be many other changes…

I dare call it.

Last night the President of the United States took the law into his own hands.  Previously he has said that the President has no authority to supersede Congress.  This is true.  He then proceeded to supersede Congress.

Thus Barack Obama has, beyond any doubt, betrayed his oath of office to faithfully uphold the law.  We even have a technical term for that:  traitor.

He has not betrayed America “beyond a reasonable doubt”.  He is a traitor beyond any and all doubt.  His act of treason is proved by his own words.  And the harm from his treachery will exceed any other betrayal of the U.S.  So if anyone has ever deserved to be executed for treason–and they have–Barack Hussein Obama does as well.

He will not, of course, be charged, convicted, and executed for his Capital crime.  His worshippers and allies celebrate his treason.  And his political foes?  They mutter and growl.   The boldest of them are even bringing out the I-word.  Impeach him?  Gasp!  Do we dare go so far?

There are three hundred million Americans and only one of us seems to have the proper perspective.  So, once again:

The President of the United States has…by his own admission…betrayed his oath of office and seized imperial power.

There’s your perspective.

Oh wait, there is something else to add:  he’s also laughing at all of us and daring you to do something about it.  Isn’t that great?  America’s first Caesar is Gloatius Maximus.

In the constitutional republic that used to be the United States of America, there could only have been one response to a would-be Imperator:  immediate arrest for treason, an immediate trial proving treason, and then immediate execution.

For treason.

So am I publicly calling for his death?  Don’t be ridiculous.  I’m just saying that if our only two choices were to let Barack get away with this or execute him for treason, I’d throw the switch myself.

And please don’t pretend that I’m a threat to the President’s life and should be reported to the Secret Service.  Barack is in absolutely no danger from me.  I’m not taking the law into my own hands (though I’ve never sworn an oath to uphold it).  Unlike Barack Hussein Obama, I believe in the rule of law.  And of course I’m also not a traitor.

Unlike Barack Hussein Obama.

P.S.–I should also note that I am a Christian.  Thus, I would stay Barack’s execution long enough to let him ponder his ludicrous claim of Christianity.  While it is theoretically possible, I’ve never seen nor heard of anything indicating that he’s ever tried to emulate Christ.

In fact, his self-admitted treason?  Gleefully doing something he knows is wrong?  There’s a familiar ring to it.

Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.

As an executioner, I would give Barack–or anyone else–one chance to avoid that fate.

Feminists create a shirtstorm because they hate astronomy.

So.  We, meaning the human race, just landed a probe on a comet.  This is the first time evah, making it the biggest deal in space and rocketry in…heck, I dunno, decades.

You heard about it yet?

If you have, then you’ve probably already heard the latest hissy fit.  One of the lead scientists was wearing a shirt during the interviews.  Outrageous!  How dare he wear a shirt?!


Let’s be honest:  that thing is not what you would call classy.  And you can buy it here!  I’d kind of like to buy one, just to cheese off the wimps, but it would be wasted money.  I don’t wear clothes that my mother would shudder to see.  My parents don’t get honored mearly as much as they should, but that’s one small contribution.

Anyway, obviously this was a golden chance for attention-whoring feminists to take a transcendent accomplishment and make it all about them.

“I don’t care what scientists wear. But a shirt featuring women in lingerie isn’t appropriate for a broadcast if you care about women in science.”

Er…those shirt babes are wearing lingerie?  Holy crap that’s scary.  What’s their fetish wear, depleted uranium?  Or perhaps Dr. Katie Mack has the fashion sense of an astrophysicist.  But give her mad props anyway, for a pretty level-headed reaction.

Anyway, Dr. Matt Taylor swiftly apologized.  Tearfully, sniff.  Oh, Matt, you sweet little moron.  For an encore, why not cut your legs shaving and then wade out into the piranha-infested Amazon River?

Had all the objections been like Dr. Mack’s, “that shirt wasn’t appropriate to this situation, and an apology would be in order”…well, that would make the objectors civilized.  And some, like Dr. Mack, certainly are  But of course a million times more heat than light was generated by this mistake.

“No no women are toooootally welcome in our community, just ask the dude in this shirt,”

And that’s still one of the temperate reactions.  Here’s a few more.  They’re still not nearly as bad as the GamerGate hatred, but then the gamers are fighting back.

But c’mon, whiners.  Your every action proclaims your belief that women are weaker than men.  When men point out that it’s unwise for women to dress provocatively when getting publicly drunk or going through bad neighborhoods, OUTRAGE!  “Damn your Patriarchy!  Women should be able to wear whatever they want, anywhere they want, without fear of consequence!”


Admittedly, in a Perfect World™, that would be true.  Every male would be a strong and moral man, and evil would not exist.  No doubt the progressive State will someday get us there.

And yet…these Social Justice Warriors, those who believe they can purge wickedness from the human heart, keep growing more and more…well, the only correct word is “pathetic”.  They blame a crass shirt for keeping women out of Science!



P.S.:  Since astronomy is the study of Heavenly Bodies, I think that shirt might have been appropriate after all.
