The hubris of NYC. They always considered themselves a sovereign nation apart from the rest of us peasants in the U.S.  Glad they got smacked down.

I'd like to step outside the discussion for a moment and thank Peter for being here.  I welcome his point of view and his thoughtful arguments.  Thanks!

Right, because it wasn't an insurrection.  Insurrection require guns, mass murder or genocide, Che Guevara or Pol Pot types, etc. Thus was a bunch of people running around.

  The reason for the misuse of the word insurrection was intentional.  By convincing the useful idiots that this was an insurrection, they could then by law prevent people from running for office or have people removed from office.

  This is why they are still pumping the J6 committee and the show trials.

Still stuck in the 60-70s as far as music is concerned, which is good and one of my pleasures. Still trying to play geetar after these years (started in ‘67, layoff for 50 years for life). 74 in a month or so and still instructing and enjoying helping people to pursue their flying dreams. When I was 72 had another 72 finally get his Private after he had 2-3 failed check rides trying over the years and now owns a late model 182 w/G1000. Still a thrill getting out of the plane for their First Solo. Reading a pleasure, mostly history especially military history. Mowing the lawn 😳 I actually enjoy, although 90+ weather makes it a challenge sometimes. Coffee in the morning with quiet for a couple hours until wife arises (early riser). Few other things but that’s most of it.

“Oddly satisfying” resonates with me. Grinding lemon rinds in the garbage disposal. Draping laundry around outside on a sunny day to dry, using no electricity.

Simple meals. Early morning walks. Reading. Day trips, exploring nearby rural areas.

We live on a bluff overlooking the airport so we watch planes all the time. Especially when we’re chilling on the patio. With wine or margaritas, or our current favorite, the French 75 cocktail. Coffee on the patio is nice too.

Currently a biplane is in the pattern, and my husband says it’s a Stearman, kept by the local aviation museum people.

My friend’s nephew was accepted into the Naval Academy and began his stint as a summer plebe yesterday.

Good, all good.

Well crap.. I think my license might be in jeopardy..
and all just because of a  state trooper...
The conversation went like this, when I got pulled over on my bike:
Trooper: "License and registration, please, I think you are drunk!"
Me: "I assure you, I did not drink anything."
Trooper: "Ok, let's do a little test! Imagine driving in the dark on a highway at night, when you see two lights in the distance. What is this?"
Me: "A car."
Trooper:"Of course! But which one? A Mercedes, an Audi or a Ford?"
Me:"I have no idea!"
Trooper:"So, you're drunk."
Me:"But I didn't drink anything."
Trooper:"Okay, one more test -- Imagine, you drive in the dark on a highway at night, and there is one light coming at you.What is it?
Me:"A motorcycle."
Trooper:"Of course! But which one? A Honda, a Kawasaki or a Harley?"
Me:"I have no idea!"
Trooper:"As I suspected, you're drunk!"
Then I started to get annoyed and asked a counter question.
Me: "So... counter question -- You're driving in the dark on a highway at night and see a woman on the roadside. She wears a mini skirt, fishnet stockings, high heeled shoes and only a bra as a top. What is this?"
Trooper:"A prostitute of course."
Me:"Yes, but which one? Your daughter, your wife or your mother?"
Things went downhill from there and now I have a court date to attend... once I get out of the hospital.

FIFY

Lots of Liberal friends posting about the companies paying $4,000 for travel to get an abortion.  Doesn't dawn on them that is being offered because it is cheaper than the cost of maternity leave, health care, etc should the baby be born.

All these women who are outraged over this are here because their mothers were against abortion. Do they not see the irony or the hypocrisy?

Well kudos for their bravery in the face of terrorist threats from the left but where the hell was that courage in 2020 when all we wanted was an investigation into election fraud?

The Supreme Court just struck down New York's "explain why you need a gun to our satisfaction" law.  The left freaks out.

Dig a little deeper and it's a lack of fathers that's the problem.

Dig deeper to the core, and it's a rejection of Christianity.

But the reasons why that happened is historically complex, partly a legacy of racism, partly a result of attempted fixes of racism with unintended consequences, partly economic changes (such as the disappearance of passenger rail and city industries) and many other things.  Right now, feminism is preventing men of all races from wanting to commit to a female and family. Women have made it clear men aren’t appreciated and respected.

If you keep talking about guns, you’re letting the left control the topic.  You’re playing their game on their field by their rules and they only have to win once.

Remove guns and people will still die from violence.  Remove violence and guns stop being a topic.

I look for gas prices to start falling late summer.

Think midterms.

I suspect that Elon Musk sharing his view will have a lot more power than the pussy leftists running around virtue signaling their ignorance of the difference between a vagina and a penis.

How long before the communist democrat party labels her a white supremist?
