Get married or else

Just a photo off the internet. Seemed appropriate.

A news story that’s making the rounds in Mexico this week is that of a girl of 14 years who lives in some distant indigenous community — the mountains, the desert, somewhere off the beaten track — where arranged marriages still occur.

A deal had been struck between her parents and the parents of the boy, which is how it’s done there, and money had been exchanged, perhaps cows and burros too, all of which were paid by the boy’s family to the parents of the girl.

A positive aspect of this is that the girl was not being wed to some lascivious old goat as happens in some spots — India comes to mind — but to a lad little older than her. So there’s that.

But the girl had other ideas, so she went on the run. Alas, she was caught and jailed, yes, jailed until some accord was reached between the two families because the girl’s parents had received the payoffs, which had to be refunded or something or other. Refunds are not something many Mexicans are fond of.*

Meanwhile, the girl is — or was — still in the slammer so she can’t hit the road again.

I don’t know if this has been resolved, but that’s not the point, which is that it happened in the first place. Arranged marriages still occur in this world of ours, and even some wives find positives to it, I have read, but not all, obviously, especially 14-year-old girls.

I bet she has a boyfriend on the other end of the village.

(Update: She has been released from jail. Her parents were ordered to return what they received from the boy’s parents. And she did have a boyfriend.)

Nadia and Simon

I watch YouTube a lot because it contains an incredible amount of interesting stuff, and included in that are excellent, smart people. I prefer short videos because I’ve developed a USA Today attitude, which is to say hop to it, and get to the point.

Above is New York Nadia whom I just recently discovered. She gets directly to the point, and her points are first-rate. In this video, she tells feminists not to be horses’ butts, but in nicer words.

And, as regulars here know, I am also a big fan of Simon Webb, a brilliant, English historian and author with a delightfully bushy, British mustache. I wish I could grow a Limey mustache like that, but I don’t have the upper lip for it.

Webb looks here at the sad situation in which the politically correct British government has allowed Speaker’s Corner in London, a place where anyone could speak his mind about anything, to be gagged so as not to offend the sensibilities of Mohammedans, whom the Brits have stupidly permitted to enter their once-peaceful nation in droves.

Speaker’s Corner has existed since the 19th century. Free speech reigned. Multiculturalism now reigns, and the most menacing new cultures determine what can be said, who can open his mouth. Simon’s not quite as succinct as Nadia. His videos usually last about six minutes compared to Nadia’s two or three.

In closing, here’s another of Nadia’s in which she takes to task Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot who is a black, race-obsessed lesbian in a biracial relationship, which is the PC Trifecta and therefore immune from criticism, but not to Nadia. Lightfoot is, of course, a Democrat mayor, one of the worst, which is saying something.

The leftist thugs who run YouTube regularly censor Simon Webb. I haven’t been following Nadia long enough to know if her pinpoint observations receive the same treatment.

Screaming, ugly women

Your Democrat Party on a normal workday.

RECENTLY I CAME upon a perceptive, if blatantly obvious, quote from a fellow named Robert Stacy Mccain:

Once the party of the Working Man, Democrats have become the party of the Screaming Woman.

I like the quote so much that I have added it up high to the other perceptive quotes listed in the right-side column here. One might alter the quote to make it more apt: “… the party of the (Unattractive) Screaming Woman.”

This is not being snarky. It is being accurate, and I think the fact that most of the screamers range from mildly unattractive to butt-ugly is relevant. The screamers are an unhappy lot, unhappy with their deranged, feminist lives.

The Screaming Women were front and center during the recent confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But this aspect of the corrupt Democrat Party has been appallingly visible for years now.

And I leave you with the following:

My favorite lesbian

YOU WON’T FIND many lesbian atheists like Camille Paglia. Likely, she is the one and only. I’ve been a fan for decades.

Unlike most all lesbian atheists these days, she scorns political correctness. Most embrace it with a vengeance. Here she provides a great take-down of contemporary feminism. Not the original version of decades past — equal pay for equal work, etc. — but the new, man-hating, storm-trooper version.

I continue to cringe at what’s going on above the Rio Bravo, censorship has markedly escalated in recent months after the de-personing of the buffoon Alex Jones by most internet entities because they disagree with his opinions.

No banking for you!

A relatively new censorship tactic by the American Bolsheviks (Democrat Party) that has received far less attention than it deserves comes from payment processors who are deleting conservative accounts. You can no longer contribute to Jones’ InfoWars via PayPal.

The Twitter alternative that is devoted to free speech, Gab.ai, has been threatened with the same action by its two payment processors, PayPal and Stripe.

This is akin to getting a letter from your bank that tells you it’s closing your checking account because your opinions differ from the bank’s.

Don’t think this is trivial. The Bolsheviks have moved their battle beyond social media. They’re coming after your wallets. You may be next.
