You can’t spell Democrats without…

Rats.  Those wily little rodents are much in the news lately, after our President took jabs at Maryland Representative Elijah Cummings who represents Baltimore.  It seems that more than one news outlet in that area has done stories, and documentaries describing the rat-infestation problems in Baltimore.  It is well-known that rats follow humans wherever they go, or live, and have been since time immemorial (probably since humans settled down in towns and engaged in agriculture).  Cities with endemic poverty, like Baltimore, have more rats than other places.

New York City has its own rat problem, in various neighborhoods, says a story in Pravda on the Hudson (hat tip, Prof. Paul Rahe of Hillsdale College), better known as the New York Times.

Los Angeles is also home to an excess of rats, who have brought with them ancient diseases like Typhus, that have not been seen in America in over a century.

Even Austin, Texas has its own rat infestation.

Seattle, which has one of the largest homeless populations in the US, is plagued by new infestations of rats, which like the abundant trash they can find in the homeless camps scattered around the formerly-beautiful city.

And what do all the cities mentioned above have in common?  They have been run for decades by, you guessed it, DemocRATS.

‘Nuff Said.

Sometimes I wonder why I read the news at all…Welcome to Seattle and King County WA

The story at the top of the KOMO Web site today is a video of an Army Veteran  who was touring Seattle with his wife and children, describing how a “repeat offender” just released from jail threw coffee on his young son in the stroller.  The offender had served eight months of a 12-month sentence for assaulting a random stranger on the street.  So what does he do when he gets released?  Assault another random stranger!  And the worst part of it is, that 74-time offender (yep, he has a record of 74 previous crimes) is not held on felony charges.  The ever-vigilant King County Attorney reduces the charge to a misdemeanor.

Hey, all you happy Seattleites, are you pleased that this 75-time offender is allowed to walk the streets after yet another release from jail?  Have you already screamed bloody murder about repeat criminals not being punished for their crimes, but released back into society to offend again, and again?  And had your concerns ignored, or been called bigoted and insensitive for not having compassion for the poor, Hispanic, offender?  Funny, local law enforcement seems to value his life more than yours.  You, who are paying the taxes to support the jails, prisons, and wimpy prosecutors of King County.  Why does it seem like the KC prosecutor is trying to reduce his own workload, rather than making Seattle safer for the law-abiding citizens who pay his inflated salary?

Instead, King County is “preparing for rising sea levels on Vashon Island“.  They are spending millions of dollars on a “comprehensive plan” for shoreline development in preparation for rising sea levels in the future.  Nowhere in the article does it mention just where the county got the figures for the amount of sea level rise in Puget Sound.  Just  which source predicts sea level rise?  My guess?  Someone’s “climate model” that can tell 50-100 years in advance that the water level will rise and affect the million-dollar beach houses on Vashon.  They would rather respond to predictions of climate doom than protect their own citizens, today, from assaults by repeat offenders.

Seven years later, Seattle’s Plastic Bag Ban has room to grow.  Only 85% of businesses are “in compliance” with the ordinance enacted years ago.  And the most likely offenders?

Leeching Tran, Vice President of View-Wah Supermarket in Seattle said their grocery store had made the transition but understands why other ethnic grocery stores would struggle, due to language barriers and financial hardships.

The city cares not a whit for the financial hardships of small ethnic grocery stores.  Hmmm, does that sound like a city whose values include “diversity”?

And then, there’s the obligatory story of the two cities suffering from a “homeless crisis”, Seattle and San Francisco.  The author speaks to a “homeless” drug addict in SF.  Interesting perspective he has.  The moral of this story? What you subsidize, you get more of.  Seattle and San Francisco both highly subsidize homelessness, and then complain when they count more homeless!

Just more and more reasons to stay the hell out of Seattle.

Independence Day Salute to America

Independence Day Salute to America

 

The Greatest Country on God’s Green (and getting greener) Earth.  I am proud to be a Citizen of the United States of America.

The United States is the most Prosperous nation in the history of Mankind.  People who come here from elsewhere know that, if they work and save, they can aspire to be wealthy, and their children will do better than they did.

The United States is the most Free Nation on Earth.  Why else would hordes of people from most other parts of the world travel thousands of miles, across oceans and deserts, to come to America?  Why are thousands of Africans, South Americans, Europeans, and Middle-Easterners clamoring to come to America?

The United States has the most polyglot, diverse population on Earth.  People here in America speak hundreds of languages, and our governmental units, from local to national, accommodate them with ballots, signs, and government forms in so many other languages it boggles the mind.

Despite what detractors say, America has the best, most-advanced medical care system in the world.  Our scientists and medical professionals bring to market more new, life-saving drugs and procedures than any other country.  Americans earn more Nobel Prizes than any other country.  America has non-profit organizations that, with donations from private American individuals, fund vital research on all sorts of genetic and communicable diseases, improving the lives of millions of people, both Americans and foreigners.

The US Military literally protects the World from Tyranny.  After World War II, and the Marshall Plan, America rebuilt Europe, and allowed their countries to spend less on their own defense and more on their vaunted social programs.  And We Protected Them, and still do.  NATO is still predominantly funded by the United States of America.  Would Germany be quite so prosperous today if it had had to fund its own defense?  Probably not.

And the US Military is the largest benefactor in the world, when natural disasters happen.  Any time there’s a bad earthquake, a tsunami, a devastating hurricane or tropical storm, the US is there, with food, infrastructure, and other supplies to help the suffering.  Some people like to say that they don’t want America to be the world’s policeman, but just hear them scream if the US is not there within 24 hours after a disaster somewhere.

Americans are the most generous people on Earth.  Americans give a higher percentage of their incomes to various charitable organizations than anyone else.  So-called “social democracies” nurture Government as the source of all good works.  In America, it’s the People who do most good works.  Disasters here bring out the donors in minutes-the Red Cross and United Way rake in the donations when there is an appeal.  Americans volunteer more of their precious time too, working at soup kitchens, shelters, and offices to help their fellows.  Personally, I saw how generous Americans are.  One of my Ricochet friends had some very bad family problems, and was in need of support.  I started a GoFundMe campaign, and within a few days, our Ricochet Members donated over $7.500.00.

I get very angry when I hear Americans tear down their country, calling it “racist, sexist, greedy, and mean”.  There are many Americans who grew up in the relative lap of luxury, and now, from their ivory towers and suburban homes, denigrate America.  I believe every single American should appreciate how fortunate they are to be an American.

Speaking of ivory towers, most of the worst America-haters are found on US college campuses these days.  Instead of being seats of learning and exploration, they have become nests of vipers, despising and spreading lies about their own country, the country that allows them this kind of free speech (become mere liberal propaganda).  There is, however, an antidote to the modern “progressive” college campus.  That antidote is Hillsdale College, in Hillsdale, Michigan.  Named one of the best private colleges in the United States, Hillsdale accepts not one penny of government money in any form, and they have been Pursuing Truth and Defending Liberty since 1844.  RushBabe and Hubby are endowing a music scholarship at Hillsdale, and we urge followers and friends to learn about the school, and support it.  Here’s a production of the Hillsdale music department, just for Independence Day.  I have to admit that, while watching this, tears came to my eyes.  Maybe it’s the Music.  Maybe it’s the Truth.

 

 

Next, here’s a taste of my favorite march for Independence Day.  The Stars and Stripes Forever, played by the President’s Own Marine Band.

 

And here are some of the comments on that performance.  Get a feeling for how people in other countries feel about America.

Man, that’s amazing. I’m from Brazil and it’s impossible to be a patriot here. I wish there was something like this here. But this… this is awesome. Glad many of you enjoy it. The 284 dislikes are from heartless bitches. God bless America!

My deepest respects and regards to the culture and values of the american people, my neighbours. I am from a city called Monterrey in north east Mexico and I have nothing but praise for what the US has done in a short amount of time as an independent nation. Hopefully in the near future we can solve our differences and bring our nations to the level of mutual respect and dignity. Only then we can make this part of the world the most prosperous, peaceful and free, but In the meantime i’ll still enjoy what your culture has to offer. 

So, on this Independence Day, cheer for America!  It deserves all our praise.  And fireworks.

God Bless America.  God Bless our President Donald Trump.

Sorry, I just could not let this go…Celebrating Perverts Month…

On my dashboard, the back-end of Calling-all-RushBabes today there is a link that says “Celebrate Pride Month with WordPress”.

Needless to say, I won’t be clicking on that particular link!

For some reason, I can’t imagine anyone being proud of being a pervert (homosexual); essentially a mistake of nature.  And no, the homosexual lobby will never get me to admit that homosexuality is not a perversion of Nature, a denial of what humans should be.  Humans are designed by their Maker to reproduce, one man and one woman joining to produce little descendants, to carry the Human Race forward into the future.  The Lavender Mafia would try to make normal, heterosexual people, admit that they are the wrong to think of themselves as normal.  Try as they might, the Homosexual Lobby will not succeed in making their behavior normal, or “defining deviancy down”.

This site will never, ever celebrate “Perverts Month”.

You CAN teach old ladies new tricks-the joy of giving!

This past week, I did something I’ve never attempted before…since until now I had no need to do it.  Over at Ricochet.com, one of our most beloved members did a post about her unfortunate situation.  She is elderly, and living alone.  She lives in Montana, and we met her in 2017 at the big Montana meetup.  Everyone just loved her, and she was the life of the party.  Well, last week she was essentially cast out by her family.

Since this is the 21st Century, the obvious response was : Someone should set up a GoFundMe for her.  Since no one else volunteered, the task fell to me.  I had already done a post over at Ratburger, for the many Rico Refugees over there, so I had two big groups of “friends you haven’t met yet” as possible donors.  She gave permission, and her post was copied over.

So last Saturday, I sat down at my trusty iMac, found the GoFundMe Web site, and initiated a campaign for her.  I found the site pretty easy to use, and it only took me about 30 minutes to get the campaign set up.  Then, I put up posts on both Ricochet and Ratburger, with links to the site, and an initial goal of $5,000.  I had a pretty good idea that the members of both sites would give generously to help our friend, and I was right, big-time!  Before the end of the day, we had reached the initial goal.  I was just flabbergasted that it took so little time!  That was helped by large donations from a couple of people, and many smaller donations.

The campaign is still open, with a new goal of $7,500.  We are almost there, and I am leaving it open until we reach the new goal.  When the initial posts got buried, I posted updates, and more donations came in.

I have always believed, since I was a psychology grad student, that giving to others not only benefits the recipient, but the donor.  We humans are programmed to get a thrill from helping someone else, and this campaign proves it.  My heart is just bursting with joy, at being able to succeed at a first effort to corral that many donors to reach a goal that would help someone we all know deserves it.  I have this big grin on, whenever I see a new donation drop in!  I get a text message on my new iPhone whenever a new donation is registered, and the site makes it easy to say “thank you”.  I remembered a few years ago, when a Rico member who was wheelchair-bound needed a handicapped van to get around, and the Ricochet family pulled together, and funded it.

I learned that if I want to help someone, I can do it.  I am glad that GoFundMe is there, and their people should be proud that they are able to help so many.  Try it, you’ll like it, and you’ll benefit almost as much as the beneficiary does.

Trudeau Cabinet Member Steps Down…What does this say about Liberals (and the Wall Street Journal)?

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in the midst of a rather interesting scandal.  It involves a Cabinet member who was demoted, and charged that it was because she resisted political pressure from the Prime Minister’s office in a criminal case involving a big Quebec company.  That Cabinet member just happens to be female, and the only “Indigenous” member of Trudeau’s Administration (from a protected class, of course).

But it wasn’t the Indigenous cabinet member who stepped down, but a different female minister.  Her name is Jane Philpott.  This is what the Wall Street Journal had to say about Ms. Philpott:

The family physician had earned a reputation as a trusted hand in the nearly four-year-old Liberal government for helping settle Syrian refugees, crafting policies that legalized marijuana and doctor-assisted suicide, and improving indigenous services.

For some strange reason, that one sentence just jumped out at me while reading this article.  It’s a pretty matter-of-fact description of a Family Physician who has been involved in the legalization of a dangerous drug, and the legalization of Doctor-Assisted Suicide.  Don’t those two things sound like a doctor doing harm?  Personally, if I were a doctor, I would in no way be proud of either of those two accomplishments.  I was also taken aback at the Journal’s almost offhand way of listing what she has been doing in the Canadian government.  The article did not say so, but I’m betting that the good doctor has no qualms about performing abortions either.  Doctors participating in murder and suicide have become pretty commonplace in today’s society.  It’s a shame.

The Senior Senator from my State Advocates Infanticide.

A big story today covers the proposal in the Senate by Senator Ben Sasse proposed a bill offering protection for a live baby who survives a botched abortion (just thinking about that in itself is horrible-that a last-second “abortion” could “fail” and leave the baby alive).  Senator Sasse proposed to pass this bill by acclamation-who could NOT support a bill like this?

Well, I’ll just tell you who.  That would be the Senior Senator from Washington State, otherwise known as the “Mom in Tennis Shoes”, Sleazebag ,oops, Senator Patty Murray.  She is a sorry excuse for a senator, and is mocked as the most stupid person in Congress. So, now she adds “advocate of infanticide” to her many recommendations.

This is the logical conclusion to the Feminazi sacramentalizing of Abortion above all.

Local KIRO Radio personality Dori Monson talked about this on his show today.  Like him, I am ashamed to have that piece of horse turd “representing” me in the other Washington.  May she rot in hell.
