Pluses of the plague

500px-Plus_symbol.svgALL IS NOT bad in these days of the plague. There are pluses.

 

  1. We’re spending less money. Yes, staying at home means not going out to eat, something we usually do a lot, but rarely now. So, more cash in the bank.
  2. No more roadblocks on the highway between here and the capital city. There is a teachers college* in a small burg between here and there, and the students — radical, ignorant nincompoops one and all — regularly put roadblocks on the highway to solicit money to further the Revolution. I never give them a peso. But the CCP Virus has chased them away. Ha! Irony.
  3. Lower gasoline prices. Apparently, this has squat to do with the plague, but it happened almost simultaneously, so it seems connected. Gas prices in Mexico have plunged from about 20 pesos a liter to 14, a sizable savings. I think we can thank the Russkies and the Mohammedans for this.
  4. More together time with my child bride and her with me. This is mostly a plus, but we are getting on one another’s nerves now and then. In our 18 years we’ve never been together so often. She is cute, however.
  5. More posts on The Unseen Moon. This is a plus more for you than for me, but it’s a plus for me too in that it gives me something to do aside from watch YouTube videos and read books on my Kindle. I  also garden now and then. Weeds.
  6. A cleaner house. We have no domestics aside from Abel the Deadpan Yardman, but that’s just the yard. Inside the house, milady is the Queen of Cleaning. It’s not her best talent, but she does a decent job when she finds time free from her pastry business, which is kaput for now. So housecleaning is getting more attention. I do some too. I am very un-Mexican in that regard. Pass the broom.
  7. I’ve ceased to shave.

* These are called “Normal” schools, but there’s nothing normal about them. It’s a chain of “teacher colleges” around the country, which has existed for decades. In reality, they are communist training camps replete with murals of Ché, which explains the radicalism of teacher unions in Mexico and also the appallingly low education level. Sad.

Limeys get liberated!

THE UNSEEN MOON sends heartfelt congratulations this morning to the Brits who have thrown off — as of 11 p.m. last night — the yoke of the European Union.

acfede1733495afc76812f0988826c8bSince Great Britain was one of the principals of the EU, there is hope of a domino effect and that other nations will come to their senses, embrace their nationalities and culture, and get the devil out of that nefarious, globalist organization.

Like open borders in North America, open borders in Europe has been a disaster, allowing millions of people, especially Mohammedans, from less successful nations to easily invade the countries of Western Europe where they set up their little caliphates, grab taxpayer money and incite violence.

But one wonders if it’s not too late for the British. A malevolent  Mohammedan mayor rules London, and the favorite name for newborn boys in the United Kingdom last year was Mohammed. Not Cecil or Nigel.

This doesn’t bode well for British culture.

On a related note, President Trump has reduced substantially the contributions of U.S. taxpayers to the United Nations, another dreadful, globalist, plus anti-American organization. Perhaps after his re-election this year, he will do the right thing and toss the entire U.N. into the Atlantic Ocean, letting it paddle on its own.

Let us pray so.

In the meantime, let us cheer Great Britain and wish it well.

Now pass the fish and chips.

Or perhaps falafel and hummus would be more fitting.

Let’s laugh at leftists!

This would be funnier if it weren’t so true.

A CLEAR-THINKING amiga sends me this sort of stuff on occasion. Here are two you will — or won’t if you vote for Democrats — find entertaining.

People who still vote Democrat (I long did!) are always entertaining and worrisome at the same time due to the growing prevalence and danger of their nutty notions.

The above illustration focuses on Democrats’ loony love of Mohammedans, a religion that runs completely counter to the gods of diversity, equality, women’s rights, gay rights and all that other stuff Democrats crow about every day.

Go figger.

Bonus issue: Democrats also weep about the “oppression” of Palestinians, a totally bogus oppression, which they attribute mostly to the beastly nation of Israel, the only spot in the Middle East where women walk free and democracy reigns.

If you want to be knowledgeable about this faux oppression, watch this.

Now to the photo below. Perhaps you don’t know — if you read the New York Times, Huffpost, Slate, etc. — but there’s been lots of questioning about whether Michelle Obama is a transvestite. It seems some photos of her appear to show a crotch bulge.

I do not subscribe to that belief, nor do I think Weepy Barry was born in Kenya. There are — and continue to be — lots of reasons to dislike those two, but their gender and birthplace are not among them. You may disagree. Feel free.

What the Devil?

Hordes of Hondurans trying to invade Mexico — and then to the United States.

WELL, IF THIS isn’t a fine how-do-you-do.

At top is a bridge this week at the Mexico-Guatemala border. Mobs of Hondurans hit the border on their mostly unobstructed journey to the United States.

Just below are mobs of Mohammedans invading Europe, mostly with the naive permission of the European Union, all in the name of fellowship and love, an abundance of which was left over from the stoned 1960s.

You can see from the second photo that the mob is mostly young men. I’m guessing most of the Honduran mob is young men too. Quite a few, no doubt, if history indicates anything, have youngsters in tow, related or not, to tug on the heartstrings of the clueless above the Rio Bravo.

Who is to blame in this hemisphere? That would be the U.S. government of both Republican and Democrat administrations going back decades, and their de facto open-border policies that have amounted to invitations to millions down south to just come on up. We’ll take you in.

Who is to blame in Europe? That would be the politically correct European Union that has embraced diversity and multiculturalism with a vengeance. The aftermath of the stoned 1960s also plays a large role in that situation.

Am I unsympathetic to these “migrants” as a whole? I am not. They come from parts of the world with defective, poorly functioning cultures going back centuries. They want a better life, sensibly, and they are hoofing it to better functioning, superior cultures, also going back centuries.

What is likely to be the end result? Will the invaded cultures be uplifted with these inundations of people with drastically different mindsets? Or will things go in the contrary direction? Put your money on the contrary direction, which is already blatantly obvious in much of Europe and the United States.

Some cultures function well. Others do precisely the opposite.

Well-functioning nations need to mind their borders effectively. The fact that well-functioning nations are the minority makes this even more essential.
