Let’s Review 89: Of the Beauty of Frou-Frou vs the Ugly Feckless Fools

Le Frou-Frou. 1900. Weiluc. One of the greatest, most alluring posters in the world: those sly cat eyes, those sumptuous cushions, that seductive plume of cigarette smoke, and most breathtaking: the white negative space of the petticoats, on which to dream. Le Frou-Frou was a light-hearted, satirical publication that ran from 1900 to the beginning of World War I; its pages contained pictures of can-can dancers, cartoons, humorous anecdotes of Parisian life, and more risqué elements like some of the first advertisements for condoms.

The critical fraction of American gun owners that would have to be hard-core enough to resist confiscation with lethal violence in order to stop the attempt is lower than 1 in 317. Probably much lower. Especially if we responded by killing not merely the doorknockers but the bureaucrats and politicians who gave them their orders. Which would be more efficient, more just, and certain to follow.

Laws are neglected and a full-court press of propaganda from education to television endlessly clobbers Westerners from every conceivable angle that this is good for them, when it very obviously is not. A substantial minority have bought this fiction hook, line, and sinker, unshakably convinced that it is their moral imperative to be dispossessed and, in extreme cases, exterminated. The Anatomically Correct Banana

Well, @kathygriffin thinks the First Lady’s name is “Melanie. So do all of Kathy’s followers. Here’s what’s even funnier: “Feckless” means exactly the opposite of complicit. Neither Kathy nor Samantha Bee actually knows that feckless is used to describe those with no power, no strength, and no ability. A feckless person CAN’T do anything. But these harridans are too stupid to know that.

I guess I should just be quiet and let the liberal establishment continue to attack President Trump for refusing to submit to the demands of a bunch of foreigners. As Napoleon warned, perhaps apocryphally but accurately, never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. And it is crazy to think that the American people are going to punish a president who sides with them over that schnitzel-snarfing frau, Monsieur Les Eyebrows, and the rest of the globalist twits. Oh, and let’s not even get started on how they can’t help but manufacture reasons why Trump shouldn’t take a chance on avoiding a war that would lead to thousands of Normal American families burying sons and daughters. Yeah, shaking Rocket Man’s hand is pretty much Munich 2: The EnNorkening.

Or a genius who called the universe as he saw it. Einstein’s travel diaries reveal ‘shocking’ xenophobia Written between October 1922 and March 1923, the diaries see the scientist musing on his travels, science, philosophy, and art. In China, the man who famously once described racism as “a disease of white people” describes the “industrious, filthy, obtuse people” he observes. He notes how the “Chinese don’t sit on benches while eating but squat like Europeans do when they relieve themselves out in the leafy woods. All this occurs quietly and demurely. Even the children are spiritless and look obtuse.” After earlier writing of the “abundance of offspring” and the “fecundity” of the Chinese, he goes on to say: “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

“Everything in our age conspires to turn the writer, and every other kind of artist as well, into a minor official, working on themes handed down from above and never telling what seems to him the whole of the truth.” —George Orwell

Furthermore, men tend to be more motivated than women to achieve at the highest level. There are simply a lot more male workaholics than female ones. There are two straightforward reasons for this difference. Most women want to have children, who, as everybody knows, take up an enormous amount of time and energy. And more than women, men feel a need to attain high status, or anyway, sufficient status to be appealing to women and to provide for them and their children.

So every time Jimmy Conway opines, Kathy Griffin spouts, and Samantha Bee nauseates the vast majority of the United States, it is a small caliber mortar round aimed at their idea of the hoi polloi. The misaimed projectile is lobbed high into the vastness of pop culture, coming down with a Trump vote-increasing hiss in locales like West Virginia and Wyoming, places that the president won with 68 percent of the vote. Are they going for 80 percent? Seems so.

I’m gay, but I’ll pass on Pride Month The sinister side effects of the modern Pride movement don’t stop there. It’s understandable that after decades of oppression and discrimination, gay people might want to let loose and celebrate their sexuality — but too often, these marches devolve into the same stereotypes of sexual deviancy that they’re supposed to be dispelling.

The majority of politicians experiencing the threats appear to republican. Which just goes to show that liberals intend to use violence and theft to get people to conform to their ideas rather than use peace and voluntary interaction.

Never Yet Melted サ Bring the Grizzly Back to California? Grizzly bears and self-entitled hipsters in t shirts and Bermuda shorts sharing the wilderness a hop, skip, and a jump from densely populated suburbs? Old Ephraim traveling down the arroyos in the dry three-quarters of the year from the Santa Cruz Mountains right into Palo Alto and Atherton? Big, hungry bears munching cyclists and joggers in the San Gabriels bordering LA? The tree-hugging California environmental whackos want those bears back, and the bears will want breakfast. I call that a win/win.

Instapundit MY TAKE ON THE OIG REPORT: It’s 500 pages long, it’s got some serious dirt in it, but overall it’s a modified limited hangout. There’s much worse stuff still waiting to be reported. Or not reported.

Don’t Eat Before Reading This | Good food, good eating, is all about blood and organs, cruelty and decay. It’s about sodium-loaded pork fat, stinky triple-cream cheeses, the tender thymus glands and distended livers of young animals. It’s about danger—risking the dark, bacterial forces of beef, chicken, cheese, and shellfish. Your first two hundred and seven Wellfleet oysters may transport you to a state of rapture, but your two hundred and eighth may send you to bed with the sweats, chills, and vomits.

Gastronomy is the science of pain. Professional cooks belong to a secret society whose ancient rituals derive from the principles of stoicism in the face of humiliation, injury, fatigue, and the threat of illness. The members of a tight, well-greased kitchen staff are a lot like a submarine crew. Confined for most of their waking hours in hot, airless spaces, and ruled by despotic leaders, they often acquire the characteristics of the poor saps who were press-ganged into the royal navies of Napoleonic times—superstition, a contempt for outsiders, and a loyalty to no flag but their own.

The Best Way to Wipe Your Butt, According to the Experts “It’s called perianal dermatitis,” Asbury tells Mental Floss, describing the kind of topical irritation that afflicts people who are wiping poorly, infrequently, or overzealously. In an attempt to clean their rear end, some people scrub so violently that the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons has given a name to the resulting tenderness: Polished Anus Syndrome, or PAS.

    We made the switch to a bidet years ago. As for Asbury’s bidet counsel, “It’s cold at first, but you get used to it” . . . nonsense! Get a Hot & Cold bidet (like us), adjust the temperature to your liking, Voilà! Problem solved.

    Dr. Jay – my wife has fancied bidets since our first overseas trip back in the mid ’60s. She had a bidet put in when we built this place in ’77, and it’s had a lot of use, by her, for whatever women use them for. If she ever caught me cleaning my butt on it, she’d soon be a do-it-yourself widow.

    My wife and were once inconvenienced by the NYC Pride Parade. We couldn’t cross the street as we’d planned, so we watched. It was fine, but when it came to the parade participants wearing diapers, I was glad we were out-of-towners and would never have to deal with them on a personal basis. Wear a diaper in public if you want, but don’t expect me to take you seriously the next day.

    Gun confiscation will occur the cowardly gov’t way.

    Phase 1
    Everybody will receive a letter in the mail stipulating that all such-n-such guns must be turned into the local law enforcement center within 90 days and anyone possessing such guns after that period will be considered felons and susceptible to immediate arrest and incarceration.

    After 90 days phase 2 will kick in.

    Phase 2
    When any person attempts to register their children or selves in any school, access any form of medical facility, renew or start any form of insurance or license, they must sign a form that stipulates they posses none of the such-n-such guns and if those guns are found in their possession at any time immediate arrest and incarceration for a period of not less than 10 years will be the sentence.

    Phase 3
    When any person attempts to register their children or selves in any school, access any form of medical facility, renew or start any form of insurance or license, they must first show proof that their home(s) have been inspected by law enforcement proving that they are in compliance with the law.

    Phase 4
    Income tax refunds will be withheld until the recipient provides proof that his home(s) have been inspected by the local law enforcement as being free of the prohibited guns.

    Phases 5-25 take it farther down the rabbit hole than you care to imagine.
    No one does administrative like the gov’t, they win by attrition – they wear you out with paperwork and regulations and repeated exposure to surly female minorities with knotted hair and 3″ purple fingernails.

    Go Galt!

    Regarding all that ass wiping stuff, if you ain’t taking a shower immediately afterward there’s something wrong inside your head and you weren’t raised properly.

    buh-buh nuclear family, hello modern progressive extended clan

    But, but, ghost, what about mid-day forays?

    Well then you have bigger issues that can be addressed here.

    Suffice to say, you should spend some quality time with your favoritest person in the whole world, YOU!, and figure out a routine that gets you on track and stay there.

    What goes in comes out and if you attention the former and neglect the latter you’ll suffer yourself and others. shunning and slamming are the cures

    I cannot remember EVER shitting in a public place and cannot imagine doing so and not walking around afterward feeling nasty.

    One more reason to stay out of eating establishments – seems there’s always someone in one of the stalls evacuating their bowels.

    Probably a disgusting fag suffering from a rectal prolapse.

    “…according to the experts?”
    Tell me. Who becomes an expert ass wiper? Is there training? A license? Maybe a union? I didn’t even know it was a thing.
