The leftist media has cited “darkness” repeatedly since the election of President Trump. The Washington Post, more leftist even than The New York Times, recently added “Democracy Dies in Darkness” to its online masthead.
The Post says it has nothing to do with Trump.
I don’t want to be associated with leftists and their dark obsessions in any form, so I am abandoning entirely the dark photos I’ve used here for avatars for a long time.
Gone is the black hat and the dark bebop cap in black & white photos. I am out of the cave. The new face to the world is this, which was taken about 12 years ago.
I am enjoying a churro* in the restaurant owned in downtown San Miguel de Allende by Mexican actress Margarita Gralia.
While I added this photo to my comments avatar weeks ago, it was only today that I made it official by adding it to the Felipe Page up thataway.
This change has lifted a darkness from my spirit. I feel more upbeat, happier and fulfilled. Let’s leave the darkness to Democrats and other sourpusses.
Conservatives are happy, colorful people.

HERE’S A FUN quiz, making The Unseen Moon sort of like a ladies’ magazine. They’re often full of quizzes that appeal to the womenfolk, especially when the quizzes have to do with men, sex, apparel and hairdos.
My quiz, not surprisingly, is a political test. It’s very short, and it’s reportedly quite accurate in pinpointing where one sits in the great scheme of political life.
The quiz allegedly has been taken by 23 million people.
I think of myself as very conservative, and left-wing passersby, some of whom had to be eventually blackballed here for lack of class, have been fond of calling me a right-wing nut, fascist, Nazi and, of course, the ever-popular racist!
Fact is I’m just a regular guy who believes in liberty and being left alone and, it turns out, more libertarian than Nazi.
In light of this, I have changed the category line of Right-Wing View that appeared above all headlines here on political issues to Libertarian View, which is more accurate though it does not get the collectivists lathered up as nicely as the right-wing label, and that’s always been such fun.
THE PERCEPTIVE among you might have noticed that I’ve not bashed Barry of late. That’s because I’ve mostly given up on him. He’s beyond redemption and, probably, the United States is beyond it too. Every great nation has its day in the sunshine, and that day has passed for America.
The 20th Century was its moment of glory. Gone now. Poof!
Lame-duck Barry recently asked, hilariously, for higher taxes and more government spending. Of course, the nation is already foundering in bloody red financial seas. And I see that Barry spoke at a “National Prayer Breakfast” yesterday where he said Christians — like Mohammedans — also have a horrific history.
The Crusades, you know. We’re just as nasty as they are.
Of course, the Crusades mostly ended in the 13th Century. The Mohammedans still live in the Middle Ages and, apparently, so does Barry at times.
The world faces murderous Mohammedan fanaticism, something Barry cannot even put into words.
And yet, something like 40 percent of Americans still think he’s doing a swell job.
It all reeks of the last days of Rome.

* Perceptive cartoon was brought to my attention by Tancho.
LEFT-WING television pundit Bill Maher has criticized what he dubs the “gay mafia.”
He was, of course, referring to those who “take offense” at most anything while crouching behind the protective walls of their constant-victim status. Staying with the mafia theme a moment, there is also, of course, a black mafia, a Latino mafia, a feminist mafia and some lesser-known mafias too. All suffer mightily.
Fear them because you could lose your livelihood with an unwise word.
There is also a white mafia. It’s called the Ku Klux Klan, but nobody pays them much attention anymore because of white privilege. You can say whatever you want about them.
And there’s always the real Mafia, the greasy-coifed guys called Big Palooka and Little Jimmy. That was the mafia you wanted to steer clear of — back in the old days — before collectivists and their shrill political-correctness malarky greatly expanded the pool of mafias and their tactics.
So what floats this topic to the top of the pool today? An incident at a military, full-dress, formal ball in New York in which a couple of lesbian Army officers decided it would be great to French-kiss and play grab-ass and then get “offended” when someone asked them to knock it off. Details are here.
The officer who intervened, due to people taking photos and videos he rightly worried might end up on Facebook and Twitter, is now on the verge of being booted out of the military for insensitivity. Yes, him, not the lesbian smootchers and grab-assers at a formal military ball. They remain off limits, touched by God and holy.
He is a lieutenant colonel and decorated combat pilot. But those qualifications count for naught up against “offended” lesbians. This is the American world in which you live. Weep.

(Note: This viciously run, unjust, new world is brought to you exclusively by those who favor the NDP — the New Democratic Party. Ironically, Maher, who seems to be growing a bit brighter with age, this week blamed the recent NDP drubbing in the midterms in part on the NDP’s getting “lost in the weeds of political correctness.”)
THE AMERICAN elites’ politically correct obsession with putting women into military infantry and other front-line combat positions soldiers on.
Because women can do anything a man can do. There is absolutely no difference, aside from plumbing and what dangles where, between the capabilities and talents of the two. It’s about fairness, you know.
Arrant nonsense, of course.
It appears that President Barry is poised to order women into direct-combat positions by January 2016. A military that does this has a death wish, no matter how much you gussy up the gals in camo.
Women do have a long history with fighting forces. Camp prostitutes, of course, and in certain periods of European history — when wars were a more gentlemanly affair than they are today — many soldiers brought their wives along on campaigns to sew and cook and love.
The ladies got to watch battles from a nearby hill, but no safe hills exist these days.
And the great American experiment that began in 1776 continues its disintegration into nuttiness, mostly brought to you by clueless, dreamy-eyed collectivists.
These notions invariably spring from the NDP, not Republicans. Keep that in mind the next time you’re inclined to say the two parties are the same, so why bother to vote?
We are engaged in a religious war with Mohammedans. The Mohammedans do not bring women to their battles, and Mohammedans react nastily when they encounter women opposing them.
You’ll end up with sand between your butt cheeks as a camp prostitute for the other side. It won’t resemble what you were led to expect during “empowering” Women’s Studies at Bryn Mawr. Not by a long shot.
“THE OBAMA ERA is over.” So opined one of the collectivist mouthpieces Tuesday night on the basement-rated Bolshevik television network called MSNBC.
I was somewhat surprised at the election results. I was not as optimistic as many on our — the clearer thinking — side of the political spectrum. I mean, after Barry was re-elected against all common sense in 2012, who would have thought the American voter would come to his senses? Not me.
Here’s my prediction for the two years left in Barry’s term: The Republicans will try to legislatively set the national ship back on a straight course … and Barry will veto it, repeatedly. Simultaneously, Barry (wonderfully dubbed “The Precious” by a wag on Breitbart News) will attempt to further his left-wing dreams by edict.
International visits to other nations by the president will mostly end.* What would be the point? There will be an exception to this. Queen Michelle and the little princesses will continue taxpayer-funded vacations.
And the Queen will still accept all invites to fawning talk shows and celebrity parties. However, I imagine those invitations will be coming far less often than before, don’t you?
Upshots: Hillary (Barry in panties) now has the proverbial ice cube’s chance in Hell of being the next president. The NDP* has some serious and rapid thinking to do.
This morning, Ben Carson, an actual black dude, officially changed his party affiliation from Independent to Republican. Obviously, he has a presidential campaign in mind. I hope so.
Carson quote: “I believe in reasonable sized government. I believe in personal responsibility. I believe in individual freedom. And I believe in creating an environment to let free markets grow our economy. And all of that is very consistent with being a Republican.” Amen, brother.
I like Carson, but there will be other contenders to replace The Precious. Time will tell. For now, let us celebrate.
Oh yes, almost forgot, Mia Love will become the first black Republican woman in the House of Representatives. You see, contrary to what the NDP endlessly drills into your noggins, Republicans have nothing against blacks. We just prefer the sharp ones, those who are not race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Pastor Jeremiah Wright.**

THE STUPIDITY emanating from the summit of U.S. government continues to astound.
On one side, we have ObamaCare with its labyrinthine rules that complicate rather than simplify. There also is MichelleCare. It too aims to “help” from on high.
And as ObamaCare has caused many to lose medical coverage, MichelleCare, we now learn, is causing many public school pupils to lose their lunches. Or at least stop eating them.
Turns out that kids don’t want to be force-fed whole grain-rich products and vegetables like beans and peas. What a surprise! But mostly it’s a question of complex rules for school cafeterias. Like ObamaCare, MichelleCare has backfired badly.
After MichelleCare went into effect in the 2012-2013 school year, 1,086,000 students stopped buying school lunches after participation had increased steadily over a decade.
Is there no stopping these sanctimonious, Democrat, destructive do-gooders?
Kids want their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I ate peanut butter and jelly, and I’ll bet you did too. I turned out fine, and so did you. Read the details and weep.
