All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

GFF--Goes Around

My apologies for not getting this up sooner.  I landed a much needed bit of extra work and it has taken up a good deal more time than I anticipated.

Firefighters Pay it Forward Big Time After Waitress With Heart of Gold Picks Up Tab
A waitress who did a good deed for a pair of firefighters was overwhelmed when they returned the favor—for her father.
Instead of a bill for their breakfast, Liz Woodward brought a pair of New Jersey firefighters a thank you note—they’d just spent the night battling a blaze at a warehouse.
“Your breakfast is on me today,” the note read, along with little drawings of a fire ax and helmet. “Thank you for all that you do.”
Firefighter Tim Young posted the story and a photo of the note to Facebook, urging people to eat at the diner where she worked.
Then, he found out the waitress had a GoFundMe page, which she was using to try and raise $17,000 to buy her father a wheelchair accessible van.
“Turns out, the young lady who gave us a free meal is really the one that could use the help,” Young wrote in another post.
The firefighter’s plea spread like wildfire. His posts were shared thousands of times and 1,000 people donated more than $67,000 — $50,000 more than her goal.
After Korean War Monument is Vandalized in NJ, a South Korean Town Donates to Repair it
Sixty-two years after the Korean War ended, residents of a South Korean town reached out to veterans in New Jersey to remind them that their sacrifice in the 1950s will never be forgotten.
A refurbished monument that honors local veterans of the Asian conflict was unveiled Monday in Jersey City, after vandals had defaced the circular memorial in October. When word of the vandalism reached the city of Uijeongbu, folks there decided to send $100,000 to pay for the repairs.
Speaking at Monday’s unveiling ceremony, Hyung Gil Kim, deputy counsel general of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in New York, expressed his deepest gratitude on behalf of all South Koreans.
“The Korean War is not forgotten,” Kim said. “Koreans will never, ever forget the services and sacrifice of your brothers and husbands and your fathers and grandfathers.” 
 Man Who Donated Son’s Organs Years Ago Gets Same Gift From Recipient’s Mom
The gift of life that was given ten years ago is being paid back by a grateful mother to a now-ailing father.
In 2005, Bill Millard and his wife decided to donate their son’s organs when he died in an accident.
That donation saved the life of fellow San Francisco, California resident Janice McKinnon’s son.
Ten years later, she is returning the favor, donating her own kidney to Mr. Millard who is now in need of a kidney transplant.

Thoughts on Sigma

One of the reasons I like reading Vox is because he puts my thoughts into words.  Another reason is that sometimes he puts into words thoughts that I might have had, had I actually taken the time to think about it.  The social-sexual hierarchy is one of those thoughts that I didn't have but after reading about it, makes sense to me.

When you've got a list of categories you want to see where you, and others fit into it.  I saw that going on when he introduced the concept of Sigma.  It seemed like several fellas wanted to paint themselves into that picture.

You almost have to go back to Jr High and High school to come up with a universally recognizable picture of a sigma.  Here's my attempt at a description.  A sigma is the guy that:

Plays sports,
AND
Is in the chess club, or drama, band, etc

Is into typical guy stuff,
AND
Doesn't care who knows that he likes poetry, or classical music etc.

Likes learning,
AND
Hates school/the system.

Loves to read,
AND
Can't be bothered to apply himself.

Is smart,
AND
Lazy.

Will fight black kids
AND
Be friends with the biggest black guy in school
AND
Take out the sister of one of the guys he fought.

Likes having fun, especially when it means taking risks.

Will go to a party at an unpopular kids house because he wants to, even if the rest of the class blows it off.

Will ask out the hottest girl in school
AND
Get turned down,
THEN
Show up with another date that turns heads.

When his date is asked where she goes to school, she will say "I'm a sophomore at State", because she is.

He will care deeply
BUT
Say it doesn't matter
AND
No one will know which is true.

At 17 his date will get carded at the bar
BUT
He will not
BECAUSE
She is 21 and the doorman assumes he is too.

The sigma will drink a beer with the stoners, the jocks, the band geeks, the brothers or his first period teacher because that's who he wants to have a beer with.

He will date a dumb girl and the class Valedictorian, on the same night. 

He will not go along to get along.

He will not snitch.

The sigma is a guy who doesn't fit "in" because he isn't exclusively "in" any group, but he isn't excluded because he's basically cool with everybody.  He's the guy that likes what he likes and does what he wants to do.  Girls go along with it.

Mountains Out of Meadows

I said yesterday that "America would be better as a nation if more men would...take a stand for and speak out plainly about what they believe".  I found it extremely gratifying today to read about someone who is doing just that.

Ever hear of a Congress Critter by the name of Mark Meadows?  Me either, that is until today.

Ever hear of John Benedict Boehner?  You may  know him by his Secret Service code name, "Obama's Bitch".  He's the guy pushing Obamas agenda in the US Congress.  He's supposed to be a Republican.  Benedict Boehner is the single most zealous persecutor of anyone representing a conservative constituency in the House of Representatives.

John Boehner coup: Mark Meadows files motion to oust House Speaker
Mr. Meadows, North Carolina Republican, filed a motion to “vacate the chair,” which could force a no-confidence vote by the full chamber and result in the removal of Mr. Boehner as speaker.
In the resolution, Mr. Meadows says Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.”
He accused the speaker of limiting debate, pushing legislation to the brink to compel votes in a state of crisis, and moving to “punish Members who vote according to their conscience” instead of how he wants.
The Meadows resolution says Mr. Boehner has caused the Congress to “atrophy,” making it “subservient” to the executive and judicial branches. 
The above quote represents most of what I know about Mark Meadows.  What he is doing, fighting institutional corruption and the Obama wing of the Republican Party, is so grand that it over comes his greatest personal failing, being elected to congress.

Who Said...?

Who said the following:
 “Abortion is genocide. Anything growing is living…If you got the thrill to set the baby in motion and you don’t have the will to protect it, you’re dishonest…You try to avoid reproducing sickness. You try to avoid reproducing deformities. But you don’t try to stop reproducing and procreating human life at its best. For who knows the cure for cancer won’t come out of some mind of some Black child?” (Jet Magazine Mar 22, 1973; p. 15)
This is from a different person.  Do you know who said it?
"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses...I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." 
Same person as above different quote:
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
What do both of these people have in common?  If you guessed active involvement with Planned Parenthood, you'd be right.  The first quote is from Jesse Jackson.  From the early 1970's until 1984 Jesse Jackson worked against abortion in the US.  Starting in 1984 Jackson flip flopped on the issue.   About the same time Jackson received an endorsement from PP for his presidential campaign.  I wasn't able to find out how much money they contributed to him and has organizations.

The last two quotes are from Margret Sanger, a key founder of Planned Parenthood.  It looks like they found a house negro willing to do their bidding.

Trump and Joe

I like what Donald Trump is doing politically.

I like what Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing in Arizona.

I'll even go farther than saying I like them.  America would be better as a nation if more men would do what they are doing and take a stand for and speak out plainly about what they believe.

There seems to be an effort in the MSM to lump Don and Joe in the same boat.  I think that its meant to discredit Trump by association.  The two issues they have in common is illegal migration and the other is the birther issue. 

On illegals Joe is facing a different problem than Don.  Don gets to talk about big picture policy stuff.  Joe has illegals running around that he is responsible to round up and enforce various laws against.  For Don the problem is theoretical.  For Joe its immediate in its application.  Donald isn't going to have federal officers pointing guns at him and raiding his office in retaliation for his opinions.  Joe had that happen last week.

I find it disturbing that federal law enforcement is more concerned with cops who are enforcing immigration law than they are with cops who do more aggrieves things against civil rights, like no-knock warrants on non-violent suspects, SWATTING etc.  You'd think a black president would be more sensitive to the civil rights of Afro-Americans (heck any Americans) than illegals.  Not this one.

Joe has done more to legally investigate the birther stuff than anyone else I've heard about.  Yet he's never had the whole case presented in a court.  I doubt he ever will.  The MSM wants to paint him as some sort of kook for even considering that there may be evidence that Obama isn't legit.

Some time ago Trump said that he didn't know if O was qualified to be president.  That doesn't make Don a nut job.  It makes him honest.  Nobody knows beyond a reasonable doubt if O constitutionally qualified to be president.  Nobody.*

So why even bring it up?

Its about trying to smear, in some way or fashion a man who is doing well politically.  The only reason Donald is doing as well as he is, is because he is questioning the narrative that the MSM and both political parties are pushing. 

Americans know they are being sold a bill of goods.  The people doing the selling hate anyone drawing attention to the con job that is going down.  We are going to see more efforts to paint Trump as out of touch or kooky as time goes on.  They did the same thing to Regan.

If the Donald can do the same thing Regan did, and keep the tone light hearted while keeping the truth in the spot light, he'll get himself elected.



*If Frank Marshall Davis is Obama's biological father, then BHO is not constitutionally disqualified as a natural born citizen.  In that case, the other birther issues become moot.
