Capital nincompoop

This is a fun one. You’re gonna like it.

Nincompoop and ignoramus are about the only verbal put-downs I rely on. Stronger stuff runs rampant on the internet, but not here where decorum reigns. But I love my two put-downs, and it’s a pleasure when I see others use them, especially the first one. And it’s even more enjoyable when it’s my favorite news channel, Sky News Australia.

This brief video has Rita Panahi, a delightful broadcaster, taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez behind the proverbial shed for a really good and much-deserved whupping. AOC is a textbook example of the downside of universal suffrage. Nincompoop hardly touches the level of her, well, you know. She’s a Democrat, of course. The party should be quite proud.

One cannot watch AOC and not think of Bill Maher’s recent observation that America is now a nation of silly people. And you would be hard-pressed to find a sillier one than AOC.

BBC’s gobbledygook

I really should put Simon Webb on the payroll here. He’s like the Limey Felipe Zapata, the perception, the intelligence, the calm, the courtesy, the way with words. It’s like I’m looking at myself in a mirror but with a big goofy mustache.

As smart people already know, Western Civilization is committing suicide with its nincompoop cultural fixations on sexual issues and skin color while China sits back grinning and rolling its eyeballs at the stupidity of it all. China is thinking: All I have to do is exercise patience and wait, then move in.

The smart language to study these days is Mandarin.

In the United States, of course, the cultural fixations and the heavy-handed manner in which they are enforced come almost exclusively from those who identify with the Democrat Socialist Party. With the exception of a handful of air-headed Republicans, the culprits are the Democrats.

But before turning to Simon’s sharp take on the BBC’s “Diversity and Inclusion Plan,” I wish to mention that recently I heard Piers Morgan say with a straight face that the BBC is an even-handed purveyor of news, very little bias, mind you. (Insert laugh track here.)

Listen to the short video. If you’re smart, you’ll roll your eyeballs like China. If you’re not too bright, vote the Democrat Socialist line, you’ll get angry. Then you’ll notify someone to see if something cannot be done to shut him up in whatever manner necessary.

The Idaho potatoes

The two taters I scored today on the plaza.

Every Thursday, a street market appears on the neighborhood plaza. And we circle it six times because we circle that plaza six times afoot every weekday, our exercise routine. The walk is more interesting on Thursdays due to the market and the people. The rest of the week, the plaza is abandoned, still and quiet.

Today I spotted something special: Idaho potatoes, which are not common hereabouts. Other, less noble, potatoes are easy to find, but not Idahos which make the best baked potatoes. I bought two, which I will bake on Sunday and serve with broiled salmon.

Freeze-zapped bougainvilleas.

The weather has improved spectacularly the last couple of days, and we’ve doffed the heavy duds for lighter attire. With luck the recent freeze was the winter’s last, but one cannot count on that. Once in March we had snow on the mountaintops that are visible from the Hacienda. Mama Nature is fickle.

But it’s about time to call Abel the Deadpan Yardman to come and trim the detritus and tote it away. Normally, I call him earlier but I’ve been lazy this year.

And speaking of potatoes:


I’m emotionally damaged due to what’s happening above the Rio Bravo. Unlike my frequent political posts during the Golden Era of President Trump, I’ve stepped away from it to a great extent. Why bother? It’s a lost cause, and fraud and imbecility reign. As the Blond Bomber would say: Sad.

But, just for fun, let us address some points:

  1. As I accurately predicted here on the morning of Election Day, the Democrat Socialists stole the vote. There are numerous ways to do this. One is that you actually stuff ballot boxes. There are videos of that being done. Two, you initiate mail-in voting, which is tailor-made for cheating. Three, you spout “news” for four years that consists of lies and misrepresentations, which influences the huge voter pool of dimwits. A combination of these tactics works best, obviously.
  2. No sooner did Sleepy Joe, who is a senile front man for radicals, enter the Oval Office than he began killing jobs and opening the border to illegals. He’s ending energy independence. And there are moves afoot to legislate stupidities like men and women are the same. He’s making kissy-face to Iran and China. If you’re unaware of this, you should stop reading The New York Times and The Washington Post.

The most important part of the entire disaster is that the Democrat Socialist Party got away with stealing the election. The significance of that one element cannot be overstated. It’s simply unprecedented, and takes the United States down a very dark path, and the entire world with it.

Diversity at work.

But enough of that. I’m in Mexico, and darn glad of it. We also have a dreadful president, but since Mexico does not affect global events like America does, it matters little except to us Mexicans. And I found Idaho potatoes today!

Thank the Goddess for small blessings.

Crochet and craziness

We have many crucial topics to cover today, from crocheting to transgendering to the praise of diversity (again!) and on to beauty pageants, so let’s hop right into it.

People cope with the Kung Flu nuttiness in various ways. My child bride flipped from pastry sales on the downtown plaza to staying home and crocheting. Above is her latest creation, a unicorn. She taught herself to do this with the help of YouTube.

Never let a pandemic go to waste.


Now let’s address matters being pushed by leftists, those who think it’s great that Sleepy Joe and Hoor Harris occupy the White House and the man who scored five Nobel Peace Prize nominations, who didn’t start wars, who engineered various Mideast Peace Accords, who crushed ISIS, who accomplished U.S. energy independence, who lowered taxes and reduced economically crippling regulations, boosted border security and the military, etc., has been tossed out the White House door.

By fraudulent means.

First, there is the transgender nonsense, the notion that there are endless sexes, and you’re free to pick one. And then you have the right to compete in sports in the gender of your choice with others who were born to that gender, who had Mother Nature do the picking for them. It’s the Democrat Socialist Party that supports this nincompoopery and we conservatives who oppose it, who embrace the “actual science.”

The race clip shown at the start of this brief video says it all. Plus it demonstrates why even many feminists, in spite of their normally cockeyed stances, see the nuttiness of it.


Moving onto one of my favorite topics, one that I’ve embraced for many years. Yes, way back, over a decade ago, when few people were saying it, I was hollering it out loud. Encouraging multiculturalism is disastrous. And here we are today with almost everyone, all organizations, all businesses, all schools, having it written in their mission statements that they are all about diversity and the promotion of it. It’s a given.

Our buddy Simon Webb addresses the issue brilliantly, as usual.

“Diversity is our strength.” Is it really?


Here in Mexico, federal legislators — undoubtedly ugly female ones — have proposed the outlawing of beauty pageants because “it degrades women.” I pray this American nuttiness does not get a foothold here. Mexicans love beauty pageants and their weather girls. And if Mexico cancels beauty pageants, where will narco bosses get their girlfriends?


Have a nice Valentine’s Day. Hug someone you love or someone you just like.

Any port in a storm.
