The Shady Bunch

By Angela Durden

In order not to run afoul of any copyright infringement issue, I have chosen not to include The Brady Bunch theme song music itself by way of a reminder of what that tune sounds like. You know the tune and there is no law against you humming that tune in your head as you read the lyrics below. An easy YouTube search will bring up many samples of it should your memory need refreshing. 


Here's a story of a hostile lady
who was scheming up lots of evil plots,
all of them ending in murder;
four of whom were shot.
Here's a story of a man named Billy
who was busy with raping all the girls.
The hostile lady who was his wifey
badmouthed them, twiddled her pearls.
Till the one day when the lady ran for office
and her Billy did all that he could
to pretend he wanted to be First Husband, but
did all he could to make it an unlikelihood.
So the hostile lady’s daughter and her Billy
watched as she stumbled often and fell
and the bad body double waved to the crowd
while the Media Elite crowed “All is well.”

The Shady Bunch.
The Shady Bunch.
Everybody knows they are the Shady Bunch.

NAACP Says Black Cops Are Not Real Black People

hat tip G

One of the craziest things to come out of the Keith Scott shooting in Charleston, NC is the idea that it is racist for a black police officer to use deadly force on an armed black man. The NAACP, in its infinite wisdom, has come up with a foolproof way around this little problem. According to the organization, black cops are not real black people so therefore it is racist when they shoot actual black people.

The NAACP is not convinced the Scott shooting was justified, despite multiple videos showing that he was armed. Even the facts that a gun was recovered from the scene and that Scott was illegally carrying a weapon when police shot him has done nothing to persuade them.

On Tuesday the NAACP made a list of demands to the Charlotte police department to ensure black police officers never again shoot and kill threatening armed black men. As reported by WCNC, the organization that supposedly represents black people dropped this bomb:

“Many black people who become police officers become blue, not black. In order for you to survive in a police department, you take on the police department’s ideology, ways of life, and culture,” said an NAACP representative...  READ MORE

Whom Will Clock Boy Sue Next?

by Kim D.

Disclaimer - just asking and reporting. I love clocks and boys (wink, wink).

According to the Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro is being sued by none other than Mohamed Mohamed, father of Ahmed (aka Clock Boy):
The lawsuit demands an apology from Shapiro, Fox News, and other commentators.
This is not the Mohamed family’s only ongoing lawsuit; they’ve also sued the city of Irving and the school district for some $15 million and apologies. 

WTF? My Social Security number may have been stolen?

by Kim D.

This warning just landed in my email inbox from the Tea Party Patriots:
The news broke a few days ago that illegal immigrants have stolen the Social Security numbers of 1.1 million Americans... 

... the IRS has known about it for FIVE YEARS... 

... and they’ve done NOTHING to stop it. 
This information appears to be backed by an article in the Washington Post:
Wait . . . there's more . . . 
Happy Wednesday :-( 

The IRS claims an important scalp

It’s stupid to lose more than a few insignificant bucks at any casino, especially if said casino is operated by the 250 or so Indian tribes in that business. Some answer to state gaming commissions; others don’t. Sometimes patchwork federal and state laws leave gray areas.

In other words, your $1 million slot jackpot is more likely to be deemed a “mechanical malfunction” at an Indian casino than in Nevada or New Jersey.

I take no joy in much of the news I present, but this story is an exception: The tax scofflaws of the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida owe the IRS approximately $1 billion. Nick Sortal reports for the Miami Herald:

(I just got a vision of an Indian holding a bomb in the kind of cartoon long banished by the PC crowd.) Mr. Sortal continues: 

The Miccosukees have sneered at paying federal tax since opening their first bingo hall in 1990. When a tribal leader was ousted and replaced with a reformer who ordered taxes withheld from distributions, members reversed their decision. More from Mr. Sortal:

Of course, the feds should shut this criminal operation down, but they won’t. In fact, the Miccosukees don’t even have an agreement with the state of Florida, which should have done the same long ago.

Shadowban Over but Can I Still Speak Freely and Gab?

by Kim D.

Do you have the gift of Gab?  If you haven't gotten it yet, read this then hurry and sign up to speak freely! 
Last Tuesday I was tweeting out some links to Twitchy articles and posts on our blog when all of a sudden my account was locked due to suspicious activity.  I was forced to change my password to regain access and then was locked out several more times that day until I provided a Twitter code received via cellphone text. This was more than annoying; it was weird.  I had been tweeting just like I've been doing for the past two years.

I had done nothing different; however, Twitter algorithms obviously had changed and were targeting my account. Since I am a conservative and tend to have political tweets, this harassment was suspicious until I learned it was happening to many other accounts I follow. 

By the next day I noticed that my notifications were bare.  Each time I log onto Twitter I will see at least a handful of mentions, but now that feed was empty.  It took some investigation, but I finally realized that I was shadowbanned, meaning that my followers could not see my tweets unless they visited my timeline. Even when someone interacted with one of my tweets, it did no good for me to reply because I wouldn't show up in the person's mentions.  

I was basically reduced to DM interactions as tweeting was unproductive by Twitter design. Adding insult to injury, our blog Righting on the Wall was also being censored.  If followers click on a link to the blog, Twitter issued an ominous warning, accusing our site of being malware which was complete bulls*&t because we are a non-profit, educational site. We collect no user information nor do we do anything nefarious. 

The simple solution to the blog censoring was to start over and change the blog site address. Unfortunately, fixing the shadowban issue was harder.  In fact, there is no way to do this. Other Twitter users reported the ban lasted about 24 hours.  For me it was one week. 

While I am glad that the ban has been lifted, it leaves me wondering. Can I truly speak freely on Twitter?  I am not a troll (unless Sally Kohn or Deray say something exceedingly stupid) and am no threat to anyone shivering in a safe space.

Over the weekend, out of frustration, I visited Gab and requested access.  This is a new social media platform that promises users can speak freely (unless spreading porn or terroristic threats).  Currently the site is in beta testing and is allowing users to join sparingly as the platform works out any kinks.  

It works similarly to Twitter which cuts down on the learning curve when joining a new social media site. To help those who are more sensitive to certain sentiments and questionable language, Gab offers a self censoring tool.  Users can mute accounts they don't wish to see in their timeline and flag words that they'd prefer not see.  Basically, Gab allows you to create a safe space (#SeeNoEvil), should you need one, letting all users speak freely without the threat of site-imposed censorship which is definitely opposite from what Twitter is currently doing.

I know change is hard and most will prefer to stick with Twitter, but I would strongly suggest you consider signing up for Gab just in case you tweet something the Twitter algorithms see as suspicious or if the SJWs decide to pile on and flag you as spam.  You might find yourself shadowbanned for a period of time and may want an alternative site to chat with followers. 

Currently, if you sign up for access you will receive an email telling you that the site isn't fully up and running and there is a waiting period.  Last night many were reporting the wait time was very short - only a couple of hours.  Keep checking your email for account creation access and find and follow @jbaileysmom and @ecklebobchiselfritz on Gab.

Fun With Kidney Stones

Roller coasters are known for their ability to make us laugh, scream, and occasionally ralph, but new research suggests they may soon make the rounds as a way to treat a seriously painful medical condition, too.

Published today in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, the report reveals that riding a moderate-intensity roller coaster can facilitate the passage of small kidney stones, which are often excruciating to pass the larger they grow. The study was developed in response to reports from patients that they’d spontaneously passed kidney stones after riding a particular roller coaster at Disney World. In one case, a patient even reported passing one kidney stone after each of three consecutive rides on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad...  Read More

God Bless Texas and the Flag Pole

by Kim D.

As I hugged and kissed my son last night at bedtime, he said "Remember to wake me early Mom. It's 'Meet at the Flag Pole' tomorrow." I had seen the event in the school newsletter but didn't mention it to him. He heard about it at school and was excited to go, so this morning I got him up at 6:30 and we were out of the door by 6:55, headed to school.

We were meeting with other teachers, moms, dads, and students at the flag pole to pray this morning. 60 to 70 of us gathered together to say simple, yet meaningful, prayers for our country, community, families, teachers, and students. I'm pretty sure at least one mentioned world peace to cover all bases. We concluded by singing "How Great Is Our God."

While this is a public school, it's nice to know that programs exist to promote faith, kindness, and reverence to God, as this nurtures our children just as much as reading, writing, and arithmetic. God bless Texas and it's flag pole.

Al Sharpton’s daughter admits prancing around on hurt ankle she wants $5M for

The Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter admitted in a damning legal deposition that she danced, pranced and jetted around to romance her beau after supposedly suffering permanent damage to her ankle when she stumbled in a city pothole.

Dominique Sharpton gave the deposition, a transcript of which was obtained by The Post, in her $5 million lawsuit against the city — and it reveals startling new details about her escapades following the injury.
She admitted that she changed into party clothes and attended a two-hour gospel concert in honor of her father’s 60th birthday just hours after the incident at Broome Street and Broadway on Oct. 2, 2014.

“I was walking to cross the street, and my foot went into something and caused me to fall,” Dominque Sharpton, 30, testified during her July deposition, according to documents obtained this week through a Freedom of Information request.

“I heard a snap,” recalled Sharpton, who said she was wearing flat boots at the time...   READ MORE

It's the Size of the Message not the Podium

by Kim D.
Will a bigger podium really be better for Hillary Clinton? According to The Daily Caller, Hillary may think so: 
Trump is a towering 6’2″ and Clinton is only 5’4″. To even the height field, Clinton’s podium now has plywood placed in the middle, according to WABC Radio Host Rita Cosby. The WABC journalist gained exclusive access to the podiums, which not only show Clinton’s is now a bit larger than Trump’s, but that there is also a small box Clinton might stand on.
Hillary should stop worrying about the optics and concentrate on the message.  Keeping all the lies straight takes concentration.
