Living in south-central North Carolina.

Open your eyes A New Zealand man of Asian descent had his passport photograph rejected when facial recognition software mistakenly registered his eyes as being closed. Richard Lee’s attempt to renew his passport was blocked after he submitted the picture to an online passport photo checker …. The automated system told [him] the photo was [...]

a date that shall live

Seventy-five years ago. Not much we can do, now, but honor the victims and the heroes of that day; the Americans who toiled, fought, bled, and died as a result; and their why.

You have to read the rag…

…to find out what’s in it (unlike some editors I can think of). I’m addin’ this to the file: Greatest Wedgies of 2016. Okay, let’s debunk the “M” insult conspiracy theory right now: Hillary to have Jill Stein request recount for Time’s Person Of The Year. *snick* Runner-Up of the Year *bwahahahahaha*

today’s caricature

Lib’s ascot owned (Y’might wanna set yer coffee down for this’n.) For the liberal elites, it’s come to this. We’ve been reduced to this. We are all Duncan Lloyd, an assistant city solicitor in Philadelphia. Lloyd was busted by surveillance cameras videoing a buddy spraying “Fuck Trump” on the side of a newly opened Fresh [...]

It's time we all #SpreadLoveEndHate#EndHateOSU #BuckeyeStrong — EndHateOSU (@EndHateOSU) November 30, 2016 Well, that’s a very nice message. And now I have a message of my own for these students. Stabbing a bunch of people for not [...]

Keep diggin’, jackasses

Pelosi re-elected as House Minority Leader (What? Dang right this applies to the GOPe, too!)

Ouroboros and the memory hole

I suspect that the left’s feeding-frenzy (see: purge) will get even more interesting. The halls of power will be crawling with wandering hordes of aimless, no-longer-adored, zombie-like unpersons in search of validation. Chaos reigns in the liberal/left alt universe following its defeat in the presidential elections with members turning on each other. While Green Party [...]

Add one to “people I want to punch in the nose”…

…but won’t, because that’s not how we deal with things like this. Besides, the real target is never the nose but the jackass wearin’ it. The Ohio State University assistant director of residence life allegedly expressed sympathy for Somali stabber Abdul Razak Ali Artan in a bizarre Facebook post Monday that has since gone viral. [...]
