CMMC: Midweek Madness. Letter “H”

In my life, the most important thing that starts with the letter "H" is Hillsdale.  Ever since we found out about the College in Michigan, which teaches Classical values, Western Civilization, and the Liberal Arts, my husband and I have been big supporters of the small school which accepts NOT ONE PENNY of government money, …

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 …

Is Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail a rolling drug den or a rolling homeless shelter?

Sound Transit is the Western Washington “light rail” project, for which people in a large area of the Puget Sound (much of it out of reach of the choo-choo train for decades) pay a property tax, a sales tax, and a car-registration tax every year.  The first leg of the train ran from downtown Seattle …

The biggest reason to reject both electric cars, and a “cashless” society

Think about it. What obvious characteristic do both electric cars and a "cashless" society (payments only allowed in digital format) possess? Here's another question. Who provides the electricity you use to power your home appliances, heating and air-conditioning, and all your electronics? Think about that, and it will lead you to the answer to my …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 192: Earth

I have a bit of a problem with today's topic.  It sounds to me a bit like "earth worship".  I have always appreciated how God put us on the most beautiful planet known in the Universe.  I appreciate how wonderful our planet is, and the fact that we humans are at the top of the …

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 …

Masking Children is Child Abuse

Much of the detrimental effects of wearing a mask around others is social.  This is much more harmful to children, since their social development depends in large part on seeing and interpreting facial expressions of their parents and other adults; and of their friends and schoolmates.  The past two years of Covid madness have adversely …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #187: Water, Water, Everywhere

I live in Western Washington, basically surrounded by water on every side.  Silver Lake is our local watery spot. I really wish there were a walking path all the way around, but much of the lake shore is in private hands, so the path only goes around the east and north sides of the lake. …

How the mighty have fallen. Rogue cruise ships?

Hubby and I have been on two cruises, on the luxury line Crystal Cruises.  Both were Hillsdale College cruises, one to Alaska and one to Hawaii.  The fact that both cruises left from the West Coast was a deciding factor.  We took the Crystal Serenity to Alaska in 2016, and the Crystal Symphony to Hawaii …

Dystopia in the Seattle area, Chapter Two (Chapter One can be found on the Ricochet.com Main Feed)

Dystopia is moving in on Seattle and its suburbs quite rapidly this year.  Crime is increasing, the homeless are literally taking over the sidewalks in downtown Seattle, and businesses are leaving due to the onerous Covid diktats of the Dictator in Olympia and his henchmen the Health Nazis.  Headline stories today: Seattle sidewalks overrun by …
