Last Tuesday was sure an… interesting day. Over the last couple of days I’ve been reviewing all that happened while I was away in pursuit of hoofed ungulates, and boy howdy is there some entertaining stuff there. See the “This Week’s Idiots” section for some examples.
I had two primary takeaways from all this: First, the VA elections in particular were all about education. Parents (rightly) feel they should have some say on how their kids are educated. Second, the Democrats have taken all the wrong messages from this, and the primary reaction seems to be “…we need to prog harder.” Yeah, let us all know how that works out for you.
It’s going to be an interesting year coming up, True Believers.
On To the Links!
Remarkable: A NJ truck driver, spending less than $200 on his campaign, unseats the long-standing NJ state Senate President.
He really has no idea what’s going on, does he?
I will watch this lady’s career with great interest. Shes the kind of person that makes one proud to be an American.
This makes sense, so it will never happen.
Joe Manchin angers leftists – again.
Build Back Better is (hopefully) dead.
The best meltdowns from last Tuesday.
Dems fear 2022 will be a wipeout. I’m guessing they are right.
When your enemy is committing suicide – let him!
Trump is spoiling for a rematch.
Remington, the country’s oldest gun manufacturer and in fact the country’s oldest corporation that is still in the primary business for which if was incorporated, is moving from Ilion, NY to Georgia. Way overdue.
Why is the FBI investigating the theft of a girl’s diary?

This Week’s Cultural Edification:
In 2011 we lost a performer whose career spanned a wide variety of musical styles, including country, soul, pop and theater. I’m speaking of Dobie Gray, and he was a remarkable musician. Born into a family of Texas sharecroppers in 1940, Gray quickly moved into music and saw great success. His 1973 hit Drift Away is still a staple of classic-rock radio.
Here, then, is that song. Enjoy.
