Biden Got His Second Shot in Early January before He Was Inaugurated. ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Politics | Tags: , , )

The American people heard that Facebook had decided to ban Australia, and ,unsurprisingly, decided that it was becoming obvious that Big-Tech was in need of some federal regulation. The Trump-haters, of course, celebrated when Twitter banned Trump, but banning the President of the United States was really going way too far, whether you liked what […]

President Joe Biden’s ‘Climate Envoy’ John Kerry spoke out Thursday to push back against the opposition to President Joe Biden’s climate agenda. He said on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that he does not understand the opposition because Biden’s agenda creates a better “standard of living” and “quality of life”. The 60,000 people who just lost […]

What is it about Liberals? Why do they want us all to feel guilty? We are not supposed to be thankful on Thanksgiving, because we should feel guilty about the Native Americans. We should feel guilty if we call them Indians rather than “Native Americans”. Some, “Antifa” or something else, have been out rioting and […]

History is What Happened in the Past. ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Bureaucracy, Capitalism, Coronavirus, Crime, Domestic Policy, Economics, Economy, Education, History, Humor, Police, The United States | Tags: , , )

Former Vice President Joe Biden has clarified matters. Donald Trump caused the Corona virus, didn’t act on it promptly enough, didn’t do the right things when he finally did act, and thus caused all the deaths and misery and unemployment that have resulted. He has also caused all the riots and protests, is a thoroughly […]

A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury… ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Crime, Democrat Corruption, Domestic Policy, History, National Security, Police, Politics, Regulation, Terrorism, The United States | Tags: , , )

Is there some kind of cause here? The media has lots of stirring film of demonstrations and protests in Portland and Seattle to tuck away for the next appropriate moment. Does it mean anything? The police officer who had his knee on George Floyd’s neck has been charged with murder, and will face the courts. […]

Statues Cannot Defend Themselves, Perhaps That’s the Attraction ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Crime, Domestic Policy, Freedom, History, Law, Police, Politics, Regulation, The United States | Tags: , , )

All this attacking our history by removing any evidence of past heroes on the wrong side of the Civil War, led me to some imaginary conversations, which were interesting. I tried to imagine a conversation with someone who was attempting to destroy or damage a statue of George Washington. Naturally, I asked “why?” The interesting […]

And suddenly we are in the midst of some sort of revolution. Protests, riots, looting, secession (here in Seattle, but over) Mass attacks on statues! Everything […]

  There are times when you look out upon the passing scene — and think if you could just give them all a spanking and send them to bed without any dinner, it might settle them down a bit.  These attacks on our national history and the statues there to remind us, are so ignorant […]

Recommended Reading. Not Just Should Read, but You’ll Be Glad you Did. ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Capitalism, Domestic Policy, Economy, Freedom, History, Politics, The United States | Tags: , , )

Here are some books I highly recommend. Your public library should have them, Amazon will, and they’ll have used books if you don’t want to spend much. If you have kids, you will want to have them around the house. David McCullough’s 1776, a gripping narrative of the year of independence, tells the story of […]

“Erasing American History” Why Would Anyone Want To? ( By: The Elephant's Child | Filed under: Crime, Democrat Corruption, Domestic Policy, Election 2020, History, Intelligence, Politics, Progressivism, Seattle WA | Tags: , , )

The brave people who are out fiercely attacking helpless statues are at it again. Not every city has handy statues of former Confederate generals, so they have to go after the lesser figures, who may or may not have owned slaves, which seems to be the latest charge. George Washington? Francis Scott Key? The Star […]

Every time you think you have seen it all, something else pops up. In this case, it is protesters in Portland, Oregon who last night dismantled a statue of George Washington, after they wrapped Washington’s head in an American flag and set it all on fire. George Washington? The statue was created by an Italian-American […]
