Okay, now this here’s funny

Here’s a slow-Friday post as I walk out the door for a little range therapy. Some wag clearly put a lot of effort into this. ~ vid ~ Dick (I assume it’s dick, nqdwg) And now, it’s a slow Saturday, so here are a couple’a more yucks: • Gregg Gutfeld is a national treasure. • [...]

WW-I champs on the Champs

Bastille Day’s military parade Nice gesture, having American troops lead the parade on the centenary year of America’s entry into WW-I Yep, very fitting. After all, the American Revolution owed it’s ultimate success, in large part, to Louis XVI’s funding, de Grasse’s fleet, Beaumarchais’ gun-running, and Lafayette’s advocacy which helped* secure France’s backing against Britain, [...]

Watching CNN is like [...]

Who ya got?

Maxine Waters’ brain vs Ben Carson’s ass Sounds like a fair fight, though. Sometimes, I get confused between (D) talkin’ points and punchlines. On Saturday, Rep.
