Goodies from Ol' Remus

1940s. Women's Army Corps recruitment photo

art-remus-ident-04.jpg A publicity photo, no date or location, but too good a photo to stay in my files. It's probably from 1943 when the WACs were put on active duty status in the US Army. 150,000 volunteers served in the WAC during WWII.
Although they served with uncomplaining distinction, it was far short of the hoped-for replacement of a million men for reassignment to front line duty. The WAC was folded into the regular Army in 1978.

  Taxicab Depressions - What Happens If Nothing Happens? ... the elites prove once again that they are just too big to jail

  Mirror - Britain's 'worst ever' child grooming scandal exposed: Hundreds of young girls raped, beaten, sold for sex and some even killed ... many as 1,000 white children, girls as young as 11, kidnapped by Moslem perverts and torturers in Telford since the 1980s (Worst ever, that's saying something)

  Reply to WaPo, Cold Fury - You miserable elitist tapeworms in your exorbitantly-priced urban ratholes, quivering in terror at the nascent American renaissance? You surely can’t be talking about normal Americans, who are in the main living contentedly in quiet, peaceful homes surrounded by loving families; perhaps competitive but by no means viciously so; suspicious not of each other but of YOU and your ilk, their would-be masters, and quite rightly too; comforted and enriched by the Christian faith you deride and mock from the depths of your mindless ignorance—while you yourselves provide a near-comical example of true spiritual shallowness by mindlessly chasing after every fad guru, shaman, mystic, quack, crackpot, or plain charlatan who knows an easy mark when he sees a city full of them.

Zero Hedge - Baltimore Mayor Pledges 60 Taxpayer-Funded Buses To Drive Students To D.C. Gun Protest ... she's a Black Lives Matter mayor

art-remus-ident-04.jpg In 13 out of 19 Baltimore high schools, not one kid passed minimum proficiency tests, the school system has a deficit so bad teachers are being laid off and the city says they can't heat the schools, yet they're going to take 3,000 school kids to DC so "their voices are heard" at a gun control rally. With lunch and a free t-shirt. Projected bill to taxpayers: $100,000.
Meanwhile, Baltimore ranks just below Juarez for most violent cities in the world . Keeping them company on the list are St Louis, New Orleans and Detroit. These four have something in common, and it isn't the NRA.

The city of Baltimore has an astounding murder rate of 55.48 people per hundred thousand. Last year's murder rate was nearly as high as the year that the riots erupted over the killing of Freddie Gray by city police officers.  There's a murder nearly every day of the year in Baltimore and the police force there is widely considered to be one of the most corrupt – if not the most corrupt – in the nation.


  1. During the Second World War, when the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps (i.e., the "W.A.A.C."), which later became the Women's Army Corps (i.e., the "W.A.C."), was initially organized, my stepmother, Alma Capps (now deceased), of Rockfish, North Carolina, was the 104th woman to enlist, and after completing her Basic Training at Des Moines, Iowa, spent the war on the beaches of Florida watching for enemy aircraft.

    1. Thanks and I remember posting her story before.
