Sunday Funnies: Varsity Blues

While we’re still keeping our sense of humor (mostly) the Brits are feeling rather overwhelmed. It’s not easy finding memes applying to them, but we keep looking.

 

 

Think I’ll go fishing!

Not to mention that the only reason Mexico exists is that we chose, in 1848, not to make the whole place part of the US, while we were discussing peace terms, in Mexico City, occupied by the US Army.

Troll level: Grand Master of the Universe

If you laughed at that, this may be you!

And of course

Mostly from The Usual Suspects.

Sunday Funnies: Late but Hating Hate

Well, I refused to give up an hours sleep last night, so I’m rather late this morning, since they changed the clocks anyway. But a busy week.

In other news: Turkeys vote for Christmas

Or not replacing it!

 

And, of course, and still more double trouble

 

The Eagle and the Dragon

David Runciman wants you to know that the 21st Century will be China’s just as the 20th was America’s. Isn’t that special! Maybe, but frankly, I doubt it. So does Steven W. Mosher, who writes about that in American Greatness.

Let’s take a look.

America’s best days are behind it, says David Runciman, in his book, How Democracy Ends.

Runciman sounds for all the world like a big “D” Democrat—a member of the political party that, at least since the time of Jimmy Carter, has specialized in “malaise.” The Democrat “two-step” goes like this. First, they cause “malaise” by hamstringing the economy, then they highlight it as an excuse to enact government programs that make even more people dependent upon the welfare state they control.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, specializes in “robust good health.” His booming optimism is reminiscent of Teddy Roosevelt’s. You can almost imagine him charging up San Juan Hill. How invigorating and refreshing to see energy, rather than excuses, in the Oval Office.

Like Roosevelt and Reagan, Trump believes that America’s best days are ahead of it.

Mosher goes on to note that it is China that has started to decline since the American people decided to turn our back on despair and dependency by electing Trump. He says, and I agree, it might have been true if we had elected Clinton.

But we didn’t. We elected Trump, a proven fighter who fights to win and is already doing so, as we see China and the EU start to slip into recession. Mind you, trade is not a strictly a win-lose game. Done properly it is a win-win thing. But the US has been playing a sucker’s bet since 1945, first intended to help the world to recover, and then out of habit until it was starting to really hurt America. To every thing, there is a time, wrote the Teacher, and the time to hurt ourselves to help others is no more.

While the Brits may not have caught on to the fact that America’s best days are ahead of it, the Democrats have. Witness the increasingly panicky calls for impeachment.

When their chief initiative is to carry out a political coup to remove their political opponent from office they are truly out of ideas.

Read his article (linked above) for his observations on China. I agree, from what I see. But he’s an expert, I’m not, but I do have eyes.

Business Insider is also reporting on troubles in China.

According to a paper published in January by Hurun Report, a Shanghai-based research firm, just over one-third of the superrich Chinese citizens in a survey described themselves as “very confident” about the future of the Chinese economy.

On the surface, that seems like a solid number, but it is startling when compared with the same survey two years ago, which showed that nearly two-thirds were very confident in China’s economic future. It is also the lowest number in the 15 years the survey has been produced, Hurun said.

The same survey from Hurun also found that the number of wealthy Chinese who had “no confidence at all” in China’s economic future had doubled from last year’s survey to 14%.

Hurun’s survey of 465 superrich Chinese citizens also found that almost half were considering emigrating or had already made moves to emigrate from China.

Heh! Funny how that happens when you feel you know better than your people. Here it is, more people saying the US will win again.

Why?

You know why!

Because Hillary will never be President.

Always amazing what freedom, politically, and in markets can do.

CPAC 2019

So, the annual post of the CPAC videos, the ones I liked best anyway, for various reasons. We showed you the President’s the other day, you can find it here, well worth watching again. Enjoy

So let’s get started with Nigel Farage

Perhaps Candace Owens has something to teach us.

Common sense from the young ones, what’s not to like love.

Mark Levin put it together faster than any of us. He tells us about it.

So does Senator Cruz

Dr. Sebastian Gorka is pretty good, as well

And here is Charlie Kirk. Yes, I love these kids from Turning Point USA, and the fact that more than half of CPAC attendees that are of their generation. They mean that whatever we’ve screwed up, and it’s a lot, the message of freedom still rings across the land.

Michelle Malkin, who is one of my heroes, brings it and brings it hot and unvarnished. And she is spot on correct.

Here is one of the ways that they will try to impose totalitarianism on us. From Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.

Then there is, of course, my fellow Hoosier, the Vice President, Mike Pence.

There’s quite a few more, and you can find them on the internet. None are bad, these are just my favorites.

And you know, this has become one of those festivals of freedom that celebrate America and all we have done for the world, not to mention keeping us on track. And showing the world how, as well.

The Day Late and Dollar Short Sunday Funnies

And so, a bit late, but another strange week.

 

Always break for Gingers

Bring your own toaster

And, of course

PowerLine, of course, and Bookworm and PA Pundits as well, and maybe a few others.

CPAC: Trump

I’m going to delay the Sunday Funnies, this week. Because I want you to watch America’s best comedian, America’s best cheerleader, and best of all America’s president, at CPAC, for a bit over 2 hours.

 

One of my British friends commented:

The CPAC speech today, by Donald Trump, is a must watch, much of it off script. Everything you would want from a speech. I cannot imagine any of the lamebrains in this country ever being able to do anything like this.

Well, he’s correct, but I can’t imagine many people anywhere who could do this. We got very lucky when Donald Trump decided to run.

And yes, there is an executive order coming that will deny federal funding and research to universities that do not protect free speech. Good.

And more and more, decent honest people all around the world, are seeing through the globalist and media (redundancy alert) deceit, and recognizing what we saw in 2016, a good basically decent man who loves America, and knows that generally what is good for Americans is good for the common people everywhere.
