Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #201: Three of a Kind

In our yard, we have some Japanese Maple trees.  The one that came first, when I bought my house in June of 2000, started out small.  When we got married and my husband moved in with me in 2003, he dubbed it "Fluffy".  Here is Fluffy in three seasons. In Spring and Summer, its leaves …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …

Unintended (?) consequences of the Left’s environmental movement

The Leftists of the world think that humans are destroying the planet.  They firmly believe that human-generated "greenhouse gases" have been causing the climate to get warmer for decades, and they believe that, unless the world essentially ceases to emit such gases from activities such as driving cars and trucks fueled by gasoline, and heating …

About Hillary Clinton…

This week, Special Counsel John Durham dropped some very interesting information about the activities of the Clinton presidential campaign of 2016.  It turns out that the Clinton campaign, beyond paying for the notorious "Steele Dossier", was outright spying on the Trump Campaign, and even on the President in the White House.  Clinton's minions paid hackers …

I don’t understand this. Perhaps readers can help me.

Recently, Rumble.com, where I have a presence to post my videos, changed the way they display creator videos.  In the past, they would show the number of "views", and the number of "rumbles", or "likes".  Now, they not only show you those two measures, they show "dislikes", as in "thumbs down".  Aside from my "RushBabe's …

[Better late than never] Last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal had the biggest bunch of crap I have ever seen in one issue.

Last week's Weekend Edition of the Wall Street Journal had a number of articles that I just could not believe.  See if you don't agree that they all add up a big pile of excrement. Starting in the Review section, the cover story was about "The Once and Future Drug War", by James Marson, Julie …

Put yourself in Donald Trump’s shoes. Might you feel a bit angry?

Back in 2020, Rush Limbaugh stated that "We don't go after our former Presidents".  He elaborated, describing those presidents who had all sorts of problems while in office, offending various and sundry political opponents.  President Richard Nixon resigned from office, rather than face impeachment for the Watergate fiasco.  After he left office, no one pursued …

I reject the Metaverse

Big Tech has deemed that the future is in the so-called "metaverse".  This is a virtual world, where people are supposed to be living and interacting with others, as avatars.  In fact, the biggest of "big tech", formerly known as Facebook, has gone so far as to change its corporate identity to Meta Platforms.  This …
