Victim Of Aragorn

Gondor and all of the West are bloody well lucky that they didn’t have anything even close to being similar to modern Liberals and Progressives. If they had, Gondor would have fallen and there would have been the equivalent of the cover depicted above.

They’d have been rioting all over Minas Tirith, screaming, “#OrclivesMatter! End Numenorian Privilege! Rohirrim are Racist!” It’d have been a mess and would likely have ended with Sauron ruling Middle Earth.

Kiss The Cook!

Posted in Food & Drink, Humor, Society on November 24th, 2016

It’s Thanksgiving and, if you and your woman are hosting tonight’s feast, that means she’s likely going to be working hard in the kitchen most of the day. One, that is itself something to be grateful for. Two, kiss the cook – often and with intent.

Kiss The Cook!

You might also want to consider that pie – nudge, nudge, wink, wink – isn’t just an after dinner treat and won’t spoil your dinner. 😉

Separately, you might just ask yourself why you’re not in the kitchen too, helping make Thanksgiving dinner. C’mon, Gentlemen! Cooking is a basic life skill, not merely something controlled by gender roles.

Thanksgiving Dinner Origins

Posted in Food & Drink, Society on November 23rd, 2016

In America, we’re about ready for Thanksgiving, our particular riff on the age-old harvest festival. Tomorrow the majority of us will be enjoying some variety of variants of our Thanksgiving dinner. Hopefully, most of us will enjoy our feasts and the company, be it family, friends, or both, that we are surrounded by while doing so.

Thanksgiving Dinner

One thing though – Thanksgiving, despite America’s spin upon it, is still at its heart a harvest celebration. Hence, I believe that we should spare a moment or more to consider our Thanksgiving dinner’s origin. And by that I do not mean the well-known legendry of Thanksgiving or the murkier and more complex history thereof; No, I mean the origins of the delicious food upon our tables.

Spare some time this Thanksgiving to think about and be grateful for the efforts of all those “rural folk” – the farmers, ranchers, and such along with the men and women who get those crops from the farms across the land to the stores you buy it at.

Yeah, it would be good and very likely pleasant to pause and consider the farm workers and such in those so easily dismissible fly-over districts, counties, and states. Instead of repeating the urbanites’ and suburanites’ mistake of considering the America’s rural population as forgettable but unforgivable, deplorable, uneducated hicks and rubes, consider that there’s a reason why they make up the heartland of America.
