Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

It’s been a cold, cold autumn here in the Great Land.  Now, at mid-week, temps have moderated some, but Sunday morning when we woke it was eighteen below.  Typical overnight temps this time of year are about twenty-five degrees warmer than that.  A lot of folks up here wouldn’t mind a little bit of that global warming right now.

Winter in the Great Land.

The reason for this is known, though, and it’s nothing new.  A high-pressure area has been parked over the Alaska Range for a while now, pushing air from north of Broad Pass down into south-central Alaska.  It happened last March and April, too, plunging overnight lows into the upper teens – below.  And that’s OK – as I’ve become fond of saying, it’s not Miami Beach, it’s Alaska.  Soon enough the wheel will turn and spring will come, and then we’ll be in the fullest bloom of another gorgeous Alaska summer.  It’s all expected, and all worth it.

And so…

On To the Links!

No shit, Sherlock.

OK, in holiday seasons past I’ve usually dropped some cash in the Salvation Army buckets as I passed them.  No more.  They can fuck right off.

The ugliest airplane ever made?  I don’t know about ugliest, but I bet it’s in the top ten.

No shit, Sherlock part deux.

From Newt Gingrich:  Mob looting in our major cities should be a wake-up call.  This probably rates another “No shit, Sherlock,” but the pols who run those cities don’t seem to be getting the message.

The Left can’t meme.

Sorry, Wayne, but you’re wrong on this one.

This is known as belaboring the obvious.

Get out of the cities, True Believers.  This kind of shit is going to get worse before it gets better.

Give leftist thugs all the due process they can handle.

Speak for yourselves.

“I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain, and I grew concerned with what I saw. The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from Communist-controlled China.”

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

Country music seems to be in large part a Southern thing, but there are some notable exceptions.  One of those is Aaron Lewis, who’s become a favorite of mine.  I do enjoy that one of his tunes has to do with the fact that rural folks and the rural lifestyle isn’t exclusive to the South; that there are small towns and rural communities all over the North as well.  I’m not sure if he was referring to the Great Land in this tune, but it sure applies.

Anyway.  The song is Northern Redneck, from his album Sinner.  And here it is.  Enjoy.
