Menu disclaimer shows how stupid they think we are…

...and also shows how litigious our society has become.  What should be immediately obvious is that this dish contains two potential allergens.  Anyone reading the menu can see what its two main ingredients are.  Did they really need the disclaimer?  My bet is their legal team required it.  I will spare the restaurant by not …

The Left really does inhabit an alternate Universe

In the last couple of days, the Left has amply demonstrated that their Universe greatly differs from obvious Reality.  These stories really have me shaking my head in disbelief.  First, here's an excellent article dealing with the Left's alternate Universe.

Thinking back on the past three years, it occurs to me that we have pretty much stayed out of big cities, both at home and on vacations.  In the last three years of Covid madness, I have only been to Seattle once, for a private concert at the new Center for Chamber Music, which Hubby …

Does this sound like America today?

I read Ayn Rand's huge novel, Atlas Shrugged, in high school, and I liked it then.  And it seems pretty pertinent now.  Here is a quote from that book.  To me, it sounds like what is going on in our country today. In my opinion, Americans need to wake up and resist the not-so-gradual enslavement …

I say, “Let them burn”

I saw a news story today about firefighters in Seattle.  It seems that, sometimes when the Seattle Fire Department responds to a fire, people at the site attack them.  Yes, people are attacking city firefighters! If you know anything about the modern city of Seattle, you know that it is riddled with homeless encampments all …
