If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

At it again...all for you.

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., or Snoop Dogg, is a rapper, singer, record producer, television personality, entrepreneur, father, actor, and social justice warrior turned whiny-butt.

He was born in 1971 which, when one looks back, was the apex of Free Love and Make Peace Not War and taking trips around the bay with Timothy Leary. 

In any case, as I wrote about here in November of 2017, Calvin needed help with his lyrics. His album at the time was called "Make America Crip Again", or MACA, which cover featured white feet sticking out from a sheet-covered body laying on a gurney in a morgue. Those white feet had a toe tag marked TRUMP. A music video at the time also sported Snoop Dogg shooting dead a man dressed to look like a clown Trump. [You will also remember Kathy "I Ain't Getting Booked No More" Griffin holding the bloody severed head of Trump in what she called an artsy photo shoot. Lots of things like that were going around at the time.]

Back to Snoop. His album was hailed as brilliant and masterfully topical and brave and an awesome freedom of expression of the outrage of Da Black Man. 

Yes, that album came out one year after the election of Donald J. Trump to the presidency and Snoop was still complaining about it. But here it is two and a half years after the election and what do we have? We have Snoop (and a few other tough rapper types including tattoo-covered druggie Justin Bieber) turning into a whiny-butt when he called for the firing of Laura Ingraham, a Fox Channel show host because...


Because Laura was insensitive about her reporting on the death of Nipsey Hussle, son of an Eritrean immigrant who somehow managed to have gunfire around him too often. How was Laura insensitive? She made fun of a song he had something to do with. 

Did Laura Ingraham make a video showing herself shooting a clown Nipsey?


Did Laura have herself pictured with Nipsey's body covered in a white sheet with a toe tag hanging off his foot saying HUSSLE?


Did Laura pull out a bloody severed head that looked like Nipsey and wave it around?


That's right. No. She did something far worse: She giggled at the lyrics of a song. 

The P-HWPCLDRSFCs* went mad and FLOTSAM** echoed the outrage. How dare the white witch-with-a-b insult their newest Black savior? 

Well, Snoo...I mean, Calvin...down here in the South we have a saying and it goes like this: 

If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Dear NRA: Compromise does not look good on you.

Dear NRA,

Received today in my mailbox was your envelope marked “Time Sensitive — For Addressee Only, REGISTERED DOCUMENTS.” I was intrigued as I’d never before received such from you. The letter opened with a bang, if you’ll pardon the pun:

And right now, hundreds of gun-hating politicians, judges, and media elites are doing everything in their power to destroy your freedoms.

I read further and found the 2019 National Gun Owner’s Action Survey which moved me along nicely to send money to join your association. However, I’ve never been one to simply be led without thinking things through and investigating. Those natural tendencies have come in handy in my self-appointed profession as Citizen Journalist.

Therefore, let me take a few moments to cover a few points that may be beneficial to the NRA, an organization, by the way, that I had a good opinion of until I got this packet. The points are here, order not to determine importance.

The survey. Whoever wrote it really screwed over your intent with the very first question. Let’s review: Do you agree that the Second Amendment guarantees your individual right to own a firearm? I quickly marked Yes on the survey, but then took a closer look at the language, namely, “a firearm”. “A” implies one firearm. So, naturally, I would have to mark No because I do not want my quantity to be limited by government.

The survey. The sixth question. To wit: Do you support legislation that would compel law-abiding gun owners to undergo a federal background check every single time they purchase a box of ammunition? On its face the question seems logical and supportive of freedom, when in actual fact it invites more government control. Let’s think it through, shall we? Who determines who is a law-abiding gun owner? What database will be built, kept, and accessed by whom and when in order to say “You, sir, are law abiding and may now purchase ammo”? My answer had to change from Yes to No. So, because of unclear language, the NRA has screwed over citizens.

The Survey. The tenth question. Thusly: Will you authorize NRA to use your survey answers to fight for your fundamental right to own a firearm for shooting, hunting and personal protection? Never mind that the question is missing a comma that made it read incomplete; don’t even think about that. The worst part of the question is you want responders to authorize NRA to use their survey answers, but you never say how the NRA will use them nor do you define the limits on how you will use those. For instance, if I had answered Yes, I could be signing away the right to use my name in settings or manners I may not agree with because, truly, what does “fight for your fundamental right” mean to the NRA?

The survey. Last question. Will you fight for your freedom by renewing your commitment to NRA today? This implies I am not fighting for freedom. It also implies the only way to fight for freedom is by letting the NRA fight the battle for me. And, since I am not a member of the NRA, how can I renew a commitment I don’t have?

The letter states NRA is the one organization dedicated to defending your Right to Keep and Bear Arms at the federal level and in your state’s legislature. Says you; but how do I know this?

The letter states Now is the time to DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND… Well, thank you, NRA, but I prefer to chip a hard line in cement instead of a soft line in a movable soft object. Honestly, whoever wrote this part should be fired. It made the NRA look weak.

The packet, letter, survey. Every one of them was trackable. So, my question is this: How do you know I am a gun owner? From whom did you get this information? The government?!? I want to know.

I’ve returned your survey along with this letter, but I’m not joining the NRA. Your efforts are not unappreciated, but your methods are a bit wonky for me. Let me be clearer. Compromise does not look good on you.


You’ve got my information already.

Quit Endorsing Banning Farting Cows and Airplanes


Ted Lieu Picked the Wrong Person About Which to Push Fake News

F$*$ Free Stuff

by Kim D.

I know someone told me at a young age, "Baby there ain't nothing for free that's worth a damn." Probably my grandmother - sounds just like something she would have said.  I must have listened because I've typically found this advice golden.  Or maybe as I get older the more cynical I become. S0 f
uck (or G-rated "fudge") free - it simply isn't worth a damn  (daggum) is what I'll pass along to my son and hope he listens as well.

Free healthcare! Free college! Free jobs! Free rent!  It's the Progressive mantra:  Free shit for everyone! To accept this notion first we would have to acknowledge that services like these are not free.  To pay for free stuff, government would have to confiscate funds via taxes to take a stab at covering the cost. For people who aren't used to paying a lot of tax, this doesn't seem to be a big deal. Or it won't until it hits their pocketbooks as it absolutely must to generate the money needed to fund all things "free."

Per National Review, 

Taking all of these proposals together, Democrats would increase federal spending by around $40 trillion over the next ten years. To put that in perspective, the federal government will take in approximately $3.3 trillion in taxes this year [2018] and spend $4.1 trillion.
But there's an even larger problem with this than wealth confiscation - once we agree to let government handle all costs for us, it becomes the purchaser of our free shit. Freedom to make healthcare, college, job, or living choices becomes even more limited with only the most wealthiest among us escaping the majority of restrictions.  Presumably they still will have some funds leftover to afford the doctor they want to see and the private schools they want their children to attend.  They would have no need for a guaranteed government job paying a living wage and most likely can keep at least one mansion.

For the young Socialists who have been groomed to aggressively push for that Utopian society where we all collectively contribute for everyone's needs (and save the Earth in the next 12 years), gather all your friends and try this simple test.  Sit in a circle and then look to the friend on the left and then to the one on the right.  Do you completely trust both with your health and economic well being?  Do you trust them with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Do you trust them not to drink the last sip of milk in your fridge?  If you can't answer unquestionably yes to all of these questions, then wake up. Human nature has never allowed such "you can trust me" behavior and it never will.

Don't think for a second that you will actually like the benefits of your free stuff nor will this Utopian society make you a more productive and happier adult. Take the case of Joe who touts the benefits of his free tuition:

Human nature strikes again - not "working" or having skin in the game doesn't make one better. On the contrary, free things aren't worth a damn and walks one down a dangerous road. What makes Joe think he can reap the reward as a doctor, who will essentially be working for the government, for a living wage?

Be Careful at The Canyon

by Kim D.

According to Global News, in the last couple of weeks, three people have fallen to their deaths at the Grand Canyon. Hopping rocks and posing for photographs are the most common ways such deaths occur but in a typical year the park only sees on average two to three of these.  Most deaths that occur at this American landmark are due to extreme heat or dehydration.

So, three "falling" deaths in the last two weeks is out of the ordinary.  Last Thursday a man fell over the edge and 400 feet to his death. Prior to that a body was uncovered in a more remote part of the park, raising suspicion of suicide alongside the assumption of another falling accident. Two days later a Hong Kong tourist stumbled and fell while taking pictures. He landed about 1000 feet from the Canyon's rim.

Now the good news - according to park statistics, over 6 million people visit each year. So to put things into perspective, accidental falling deaths are still considered rare at the Grand Canyon National Park. 

But how, exactly, do these falls occur? Mainly by not adhering to basic common sense that the park emphasizes to tourists:

Richard North Patterson delivers a beaut of a whine: It's all Trump's fault!

At it again...all for you.

by Angela K. Durden
The Most Brilliant Woman in the World

In the March 31, 2019, issue on, a novelist, attorney, and political commentator blamed the dismal state of his writing career on the president. That's right, folks. The Donald's insistence on standing firm for his beliefs and what is right and proper has made it nigh on impossible to write a novel anymore.

Therefore, Richard North Patterson turned his full-time attention to political commentary because — and here I quote him verbatim from his own article — "The aim of the novelist is to enlist others in his fantasies, immersing them in an alternative reality so emotionally compelling that they willingly suspend disbelief. Trump has dangerously conflated this sort of storytelling with real-life presidential leadership, casting himself in the role of the archetypal savior-hero, battling the forces of evil. He’s our first novelist in chief."

What RNP isn't tell you is that...

...the bottom fell out of the publishing biz good and proper, and nobody is buying enough of his books anymore to make the time spent writing one worth his while. I bet you ten dollars his publisher did not renew his contract and he realized self-publishing was damn hard work, so he went into commenting upon all things political. He did not turn to political commentary because Trump became novelist in chief, though reading the column he wrote would lead one to believe that. 

That's called branding spin. 

Nope. RNP turned to commentating in 2015, getting spots on various #CrunkNewsNetwork shows and placing his words in blatantly Liberal publications, all of whom mention he is a novelist with 20 published books to his name and he's an attorney, too, so he's really, really smart, you should listen to him because he agrees with us. 

That is called soft advertising married to delusion.

That Patterson is jumping in now with this negative spin on Trump should come as no surprise.

Hilariously, RNP complained that Trump got $3 billion worth of media coverage for free and said that made him unique amongst all candidates. Geez, I guess RNP forgot all about the first "social media president" who got that ball started. Frankly, Trump was simply the recipient of Obama's failed presidencies. Had Obama not done such a terrible job so openly, not as many people would've cared about Trump. 

Conveniently, RNP does not mention the dollar amount of the decades-long fawning and doting of Barack and Hillary and Nancy & Co. et alia by what has been called Mainstream Media. We know them as the three-letter networks and their morning and evening news shows, cable "news" shows, late night comedians on networks, and print media, too, all featuring a staggering rotation of politicians, pundits, and pinheads delivering anti-American FLOTSAM* talking points 24/7/365-and-a-¼.

Truthfully, not as many would've needed Trump — or as I call him: The Hammer — if there was not The Enemy Within, a fifth column, operating so blatantly. The Hammer is a man uniquely suited for the time. All the things Patterson cited as negatives in Trump, are the very things that make a great leader out of a flawed man in a tough situation. Things like: 

  • Speaking against Evil and
  • Firing back at Black Hats while
  • Not backing down from Desperadoes so the 
  • Little Guy is protected, and being
  • Willing to suffer for what is Right and Good and 
  • Able to see trouble coming from the horizon,
  • In effect practicing The Art of War, which brings back 
  • respect for Law and Order so the
  • Community can now move forward magnificently.

A hard man has always been needed when times are hard and the enemy has no conscience. 

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. And when the tough get going, good people will be heartened and the fight will be on. Because, while claiming otherwise, one thing RNP fails to understand is real life battle. While one man can make a difference, he can only do it alone in novels and movies. 

So, Richard North Patterson, maybe you should get your head out of your fictional world and join the real world. See what is really happening and why. It's for your own good I tell you this, sir, because writers are the first ones dictators come after when they get in power. You may believe you curry favor with the Deep State by agreeing with them and writing so pretty about it, but you would be wrong. You are not in the protected class. You are an expendable minion when it becomes necessary for them to consolidate power and your services are no longer required.
