Tyson's Oddly Apt When It Comes To Deaths And Attention
Tyson’s Oddly Apt When It Comes To Deaths And Attention

I’m not a particular proponent of Neil deGrass Tyson as either a scientist or a valid authority on sociopolitical issues, but Tyson’s oddly apt in the case of his recent tweet about mass shootings, deaths in general, and the mass market response to such things.

There’s too many people – sheeple really – who go into hysterics over the ever-hyped by the Democrats’ Lamestream Media occurrences like “mass shootings” but are apathetic towards so many other avoidable ways in which people die on daily basis. They just dutifully bleat about what they’re told to bleat about so that the grifters of the Left can profiteer off of this tragedies.

So, kudos to Mr. Tyson for actually applying reason and facts to the situation and putting in a more rational perspective.

Borders More Secure & Safer

Certain sorts, all of which are either Democrat politicians or likely Democrat voters, have been stridently, cruelly, and insanely attacking President Trump and the American people over the Border Crisis and its resultant deaths among those trying to illegally enter our country.

Of course, these sorts are not attached to the truth, especially when any truth is contrary to their dystopian, anti-American and anti-White fantasies. The truth is that our nations borders are more secure and safer, even for illegal aliens, now than at any time in decades. Under President Trump’s oversight there’s been an approximately 22% decline in fatalities involving border crossings compared to those under Obama’s watch. This,despite the unheard of increase in illegal crossing attempts, most of which occurred in huge waves.

And, as a side note, The Trump Administration has also so far not made a habit of giving unaccompanied minors caught at the border to human traffickers, something the Obama Regime cannot claim.

But then, this false narrative created by the demagoguery of leftist and racist politicians and their dutiful media shills is just an extension of the similar lies about “children in cages” – yet another legacy of the Obama Regime. It’s just that Obama was a Black and the sort incessantly attacking President Trump would never say anything against him due to that. That’d be racist!

But hey! It’s not as if facts, truth, or the reality on the ground is going to dissuade Americans’ domestic enemies. Honestly, we need to put that fantasy aside along with our compunctions and do what’s needed to preserve our nation… After all, that’s one part of what the 2nd Amendment was crafted for.

Requiem Ultra Repris

Requiem Ultra Repris
(Click to Enlarge)

It’s past the centennial of the Armistice that ended WW1, but I feel that the dead of that long ago war deserve a reprise of their requiem. And, thanks to the calligraphic skills and efforts of Satwinder Sehmi, this is easy to do. On top of that, his rendering of Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s iconic poem as a poppy is brilliant.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Indeed, by way of a history lesson, In Flanders Fields is cited as the reason that the poppy is the symbol of remembrance for those who died in service and in war.

Remembrance

Remembrance

It eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month exactly a century ago that the armistice that ended World War I was signed at Compiègne, France.  Yes, it was exactly 100 years ago that the surviving men of that generation from 32 countries could breathe a sigh of relief and think of going home.

Yet, many millions never went home, save as corpses to be buried or as mere tokens used to keep count.  And, as the years and decades past time in perfect order and “The War To End All Wars” was supplanted by later, more romantic conflicts, even the count became something of import only to some few scholars, those men long gone having passed from remembrance, with the last of their surviving fellows having died on May 5, 2011 at the age of 110.

‘Tis to our shame I think that we spare no time to either review or remember those brave souls nor the war they died in.

Dems On McCain's Death

Dems On McCain’s Death

Sen. John McCain died… as expected, given his medical condition.  And, almost equally expected, the Dems  and many of the Leftists who employ them came out to laud him in requiem.

At first this might seem odd. After all, they had consistently a viciously attacked him in 2008 and never really quit doing so since he was so obviously among the “rightfully hated,” i.e., an “Old White Man.” It is not, however, that odd. McCain redeemed himself in the eyes of the Dems and the Left with his open and shameless hatred of President Trump.
