Best line in a story this past week:
Children can go to California to have their bodies irrevocably altered by surgery and be pumped full of drugs that could cause health issues in the immediate and distant future that could ruin their lives. Crime is rampant and the streets are full of homeless encampments, needles, and human waste. The term “Golden State” could soon refer to the fact that everyone there has contracted hepatitis. BUT the kids will be safe because they can’t get a bag of Skittles.
Read Lincoln Brown’s take on this stupidity here. ‘Nuff said.

How about no bail-outs for anything or anyone, ever?
There is no danger of default.
RIP, Ray Stevenson. I’ll always remember him as Titus Pullo in HBO’s amazing series Rome.
Can California be turned red again? Color me skeptical, but still…
The Supreme Court makes a 9-0 ruling (Sackett v. EPA) and Democrats immediately start lying about it. Hey, you jackasses, look up the difference between “concurring” and “dissent.”
This will be interesting to watch. Full disclosure: I’m on Team DeSantis, but if Trump gets the nomination, I’ll vote for him. The alternative is unthinkable.
And Trump might not have as tight of a lock on things as he thinks.
Debate is not allowed at debates.
Arguing with someone on Twitter is like competing in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you’re still a retard.
My blogger pal Robert Stacy McCain has a neat piece on the Golden Age of Hollywood.
I remember when sitzpinkler was an insult. Hell, I live out in the woods. I pee outside more than in the house. Kind of hard for a dude to sit for that.
Natural Gas Forecast – not good news.
State Farm gives up on California.
Our illiterate college students.
My friend Brandon Morse has an excellent piece on Memorial Day. Yes, that’s me in the comments.
This is what happens when you de-criminalize theft.
More signs of the Biden family’s breathtaking corruption.
Equal treatment under the law a dead letter in the US, Exhibit #211,293.
This Week’s Idiots:
The Atlantic’s Charlie Warzel is an idiot.
The Nation’s Jennifer C. Berkshire is an idiot.
Vox’s Ian Millhiser is an idiot.
The LA Times editorial staff are all idiots.
MSNBC’s Hayes Brown (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.
The people who run Lululemon (whatever that is) are all idiots.
The Nation’s Jeet Heer (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.
Robert Reich (Repeat Offender Alert) remains a sawed-off runt, and an idiot.
The Nation’s D.D. Guttenplan & John Nichols (Repeat Offender Alert) are both idiots. Biden doesn’t need to remake his candidacy – he needs to resign, for the good of the republic.
If this little idiot tried this in Alaska, he’d likely become shot.
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Back in the day – and still today, in fact – one of the most powerful male singers was the Welsh master Tom Jones. He projected his voice like few today can, and he also combined style and class with talent.
One of his best-known tunes is actually a cover of Paul Anka’s 1970 tune She’s a Lady, but Jones, in 1971, recorded what would be far and away the most popular take on this song. Here, then, is that tune. Oh, and as a bonus, take a look at Tom Jones on the Ed Sullivan show in 1968, with his signature song It’s Not Unusual. Enjoy!
