Happy Kwanzaa!

Plus a Festivus for the Rest of Us:

Frank: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.
Kramer: What happened to the doll?
Frank: It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born. A Festivus for the rest of us.
Kramer: That must have been some kind of doll.
Frank: She was.

Frank: And at the Festivus dinner you gather your family around and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year.
Kramer: And is there a tree?
Frank: No. Instead, there’s a pole. Requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting.

    If they ever do a live-action version, the mayor and her pal could play SpongeBob and Gary.

    Real of Fake?
    When every news item seems like it is parody…
    When every political “leader” is pandering profusely to the perverts…
    When madness is loosed on the world…
    When truth is suppressed and lies are put on a pedestal…
    When violent criminals run free and free thinkers are jailed for telling the truth…

    One must ask, how much longer before this entire thing comes undone?

  • ghostsniper December 30, 2021, 4:50 AM

    That thing on the right in the top vid is the most repulsive looking human I have ever seen.
    It is SO disappointing that so many people could choose that despicable criminal for the position it holds. It should be dragged, today.

      Lori Lightfoot is a perfect representation of the people who voted for her.

    • Jack December 30, 2021, 7:54 AM

      Each of them are awful but Lori Slewfoot is more awfuller. Drag both of them and don’t stop until the truck won’t-go-no-mo.

      And that kwanza candelabra with no white candles and a black candle in the center of a stolen and minor, false representation, of a Menorah…..hahahahaha. Blacks hate Whites and Jews and every other race but they appropriate all they can and steal the rest from every other race on the planet.

      They black, they black

      In a better age and time people would be paying ten cents to watch her bite the head off a chicken in some carnival sideshow.


      • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 1:30 PM

        That would be called a “geek show” in the good old days of carny acts. Chickens, rats, bats: all were fair game. I worked for one year with an ex carny guy. The stories he told about his carny days! Carny folks were—in his worlds—the lowest possible form of humanity. He told me about “Kangaroo Girl”. I wished he had not. She made a good living apparently.

  • Pissoir Dubuque December 30, 2021, 6:00 AM

    “…the mayor and her pal.” That’s the mayor’s wife, if I’m not mistaken.

    • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 6:06 AM

      You are mistaken. Lesbians cannot have wives, unless God is a liar.

    • Tom Hyland December 30, 2021, 8:15 AM

      That’s the mayor’s husband. Obviously “It” portrays itself as the masculine counterpart.

      • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 8:52 AM

        Oops. My bad. But both grotesqueries deserve each other.

        • Snakepit Kansas December 30, 2021, 10:14 AM

          Which one plays the gurl?

          • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 10:30 AM

            Please Snakepit, I beg of you: Let’s not go there.

  • Dirk December 30, 2021, 8:15 AM

    Our history is slowlyyyyyy being erased, a new history is being comically orchestrated. Right out of the communist play book.

    For years my wife would collect a few copies of her schools books, she recognized even back then our three R’s were being manipulated, we recognized even back then that a centralized Fed Dept of Education was headed into the weeds.

    AMASING just how deeply communism has dug into the roots of the “ Freedom Tree”.

    I see a time when education is wrestled away from the state and the feds, comes back to local communities. Local local local, control. The sooner the better.

    Kwanza and Festivus. One of these is comedic writing, and the other was on Seinfeld’s show.

    As if Christianity, and Judaism, and a handful of other ancient religions, haven’t been around for 2 to 4 plus millennia. I’ll speak to Christianity: how many libraries, universities and hospitals are foundation-ally Christian? Scholarship, much less theology, is monumental. Just because you don’t read the scholars, or the theologians, doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful and thorough. I loved studying theology in college; it made my brain – logic and reason – much stronger, I think, than it would’ve been otherwise. Without some foundation, one’s mind trends towards magical thinking. It becomes an echo chamber of random neural firings.

    Who was it that said believe in something, or you’ll believe in anything?

    I’ll just leave it at this. The number of scholarly books on Christianity, and its parent, Judaism, if organized into one building, would fill many libraries to the rafters. No Christianity, no western civilization. No law protecting the individual. No medicine as we enjoyed it up until Obama.

    The man who says: “I’m going to invent a religion”. That is complete hogwash. Worse yet are the hucksters who support the dimly-lit attempt at creating a new religion. Oh, they’re called democrats.

    • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 9:10 AM

      Yep. Western Civilization was carried upon the shoulders of Christianity. Civilization is dissolving today because Christianity has abandoned Christ for the world, the flesh and the devil—and popularity and money and sexual degeneracy and “tolerance”. But there will remain a Remnant, from whom the whole thing will begin again.

  • KCK December 30, 2021, 9:12 AM

    Forgive my mangled analogy. I meant many libraries are filled with Christian scholarship. To call the religion of Christ fantasy or lies is such an ignorant statement. The actual historicity of Christ is fatter in evidence than that of most figures before or leading up until the first 2 or 3 centuries after Christ. A Pharaonic body being an exception, and the history of Alexander. Otherwise you have one or two mentions of the great characters of history and that makes for their place in history. Christ has 4 specific books, other books and letters, and Roman historians, and the legacy of early art all pointing to His life.

    If you don’t fall into the liberal trap of the past couple of centuries, you see the monumental historic figure of the God Man, Jesus Christ. You may or may not place faith in Him, but to say He didn’t walk the earth is to be a completely ignoramus, and a victim of magical thinking.

    I need more coffee if I’m going to write this much.

  • Tom Hyland December 30, 2021, 9:40 AM

    Off-topic but this one came across my desk and is worth sharing for its bat-shit crazy implications pointing to a world no longer recognized by anyone with a memory. JP Sears is an Austin-based comic delivering a smarmy kinda naïve shtick of double-speak cheerfulness but he’s delivered a powerful alarm here regarding what the New York legislature is about to vote upon. Scary stuff. https://tinyurl.com/2cj86bda

    • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 9:58 AM

      What, me worry? New Yorkers voted for those little Stalins to rule over them. How is that a concern of mine? So this new law will give the government of New York permission to toss the unvaccinated in prison? Hell, to my way of thinking New York City is already a prison. Let them eat cake.

      What happens in New York is as interesting as what happens in Ghana—which New York is well on its way of resembling.

      • Tom Hyland December 30, 2021, 10:48 AM

        What happens in New York and other large states spreads rapidly. Democrat strongholds get envious of one state’s frisky policies and work to implement the same at their locale. You ought to know that. The recently booted Cuomo was replaced with a Karen o’ Evil and she’ll sign anything the legislature okays. This isn’t just NYC but the whole state. Borders are porous, as are politicians’ brains. Just watching the freak show. Just watching and interacting with the Karens in my face. I am not shy telling them where to get off.

        • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 11:07 AM

          “What happens in New York and other large states spreads rapidly.” Sure, to other large Democrat cities. They share the same disease vectors, the same empty souls, the same spiritual voids.

          Oklahoma and like states are vaccinated against such spiritual illness. You ought to know that.

          • Tom Hyland December 30, 2021, 1:43 PM

            Oklahoma is not guaranteed, my dear. The flight from the Democrat cities is a huge exodus to Florida, Texas, Montana, Wyoming, Oklahoma… you know the places? Well, there’s a large uptick in that these recently displaced “conservatives” and progressives are aching to vote again for the same shit they left behind. Discussions of this abound on the inner webs. A drop kick of your Republican governor could result with… what else… a bat-shit crazy Democrat at the state house. Nothing is permanent… all is change… and stuff’s changing faster than ever lately.

            • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 2:33 PM

              “A drop kick of your Republican governor could result with… what else… a bat-shit crazy Democrat at the state house.”

              Really? Tom, you clearly know very little about Oklahoma—and very probably the rest of conservative America. Your statement is quite amazing. Incredible, really. Did you think it through? You actually think that is possible?

              As far as moonbats moving into Red States and still voting progressive: That is not what’s happening. That’s what the media wants you to think is happening. A clearer picture is provided when one looks at gun sales. Who is buying them?

              What is happening is a massive re-alignment, of like minded peoples choosing to live around—wait for it—like minded peoples. And that is also why solid progressives are staying in Blue States. Why would they even think about coming to Oklahoma? There is no one here like them, in spite of what your fantasies claim.

              Your writing reveals that you believe that the Progressive Borg is unstoppable, that it will infect even Red States, that what happens in open sewers like New York and San Francisco will somehow, mirabile dictu, leach into states like Oklahoma and control all that we see and hear. This is like saying that banana growing will spread to Minnesota, that banana growers in Honduras will plant their crop in the northern US and it will turn out just as it was in Honduras. This view of yours is a rather crude form of Marxism, cut-rate and irrational.

              You boast about getting your information from “the inner webs”. That explains a lot.

              • Tom Hyland December 30, 2021, 4:35 PM

                Mike, you’re an emotional wreck. Get off your knees. Get off your pulpit. This isn’t an AA meeting. Stop confessing. Nobody wants to witness your embarrassing testimonials nor read your scolding. There’s plenty of evidence that the crazies are relocating across America but they are going to vote for the same shit that capsized their previous location. Inner webs upsets you? That’s a nickname for the internet and you ought to know that.

              • SLM December 30, 2021, 10:41 PM

                Alan West supports your idea that individuals who leave their blue state as individuals are typically conservative types anxious to leave the idiocy behind them. But he expresses concern that people coming in on a corporate transfer as businesses relocate will bring the idiocy along with them.

          • ghostsniper December 30, 2021, 1:45 PM

            I used to think that way. Then I started noticing the shift in one of the redest states in the country. None are immune. You ought to know that!

      • nunnya bidnez, jr December 30, 2021, 11:50 AM

        “What happens in New York is as interesting as what happens in Ghana”
        Interesting that you mention Ghana; that country was the first place our new mayor-elect Eric Adams went to a few days after being elected. Hmmm.
        There are some Americans who have moved to Ghana, notably Stevie Wonder, and also US Olympic Medalist Vincent Matthews (1968 400 meter relay).

        • Mike Austin December 30, 2021, 12:03 PM

          In my younger—as in much younger—days I wanted to travel the African coast from Morocco to Ghana. I never made it there as I decided that south of the Rio Grande was more my style.
