Error-riddled letter from Virginia teachers union about lack of COVID testing in school district is mocked as parent spots roughly 20 blunders in just FIVE paragraphs and posts revised version to Twitter

Via David

  This error-riddled letter from the Arlington Education Association calling for increased coronavirus protection for public school students was mocked relentlessly on Twitter Thursday after an appalled parent edited the piece and posted a revised version online

The poorly written letter was mocked online Thursday after an appalled parent took a pen to the piece and posted a now-viral revised version to social media.

 Hey @VEA4Kids, are you going to send out more of these grammar worksheets over break?' parent Ellen Gallery wrote Thursday morning.

My kids and I had a great time spotting errors! Did we find them all?' she wrote.

 Despite only being five paragraphs long, the peeved parent spotted - and corrected - roughly 20 errors in the piece, many of them extremely glaring

Gilboa Snake: Twice as Deadly as the AR-15 platform: 1,000 shots per minute


A new twist on an old weapon has produced a very deadly gun used by Britain’s elite SAS forces.

Everyone knows about the double-barrel shotgun, a standby on farms across America for generations.

The Gilboa Snake is a very advanced upgrade of the two-muzzle concept that can fire 1,000 shots per minute, according to the U.K.’s Daily Star.

It reported that two SAS soldiers used the Snake when they killed up to 12 Islamic State fighters in less than a minute in northern Syria.

Institutional Hoaxing – Brilliant Video Shows How Media, Joe Biden and Govt Health Officials Drove the Omicron Fear Narrative

Via  sw44magnumman Brown


The already low credibility of media and the political health establishment has collapsed more in the final week of this year than most months preceding it.   Why?

The main cause of this specific moment, an inflection point in the arc of COVID history, was the Omicron “winter of death” narrative pushed by Joe Biden, the COVID taskforce, government health officials, left-wing politicians and media.   The Omicron doom and fear narrative became a parody of itself.   One brilliant videographer has put together a mashup showing what took place in the past ten days

Barbarians IN the gates.


The Yankee Problem In America, By Clyde Wilson

"By Yankee I do not mean everybody from north of the Potomac and Ohio......I am using the term historically to designate that peculiar ethnic group descended from New Englanders, who can be easily recognized by their arrogance, hypocrisy, greed, lack of congeniality, and penchant for ordering other people around. Puritans long ago abandoned anything that might be good in their religion but have never given up the notion that they are the chosen saints whose mission is to make America, and the world, into the perfection of their own image."

Dear Friends of the Abbeville Institute:

The barbarians have broken through the gates and are now running rampant through the streets.

The opening of the Lee Monument "time capsule"--with one preservationist admitting it wasn't really a time capsule because it was never intended to be opened--and the decision to hand over every Richmond Confederate Monument to groups determined to destroy them are just examples of the depravity of the woke mob.

History only matters if they agree with the historical actors.

The media will classify these actions as evidence of "racial justice," but this misses the point. America does not have a race problem. It has a Yankee problem.

The Yankee is a curious specimen, a peculiar creation of secular Puritanism and American geography. He is a self-righteous cancer determined to remake American society to fit his Utopian vision for a "just" world. He is the ideologue, the revolutionary, the reformer.

He can be found anywhere in the United States. He is Ralph Northam and Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, George W. Bush and Allen Guelzo, David Blight and Victor Davis Hanson. Not all Northerners are Yankees nor are all Southerners, "Southern."

The Southern tradition offers the only real counterweight to this disease.

It has always been the flywheel in American society. America would not exist without the South.

This is why the Abbeville Institute is essential for our future. We are the only organization dedicated to exploring what is true and valuable in the Southern tradition, a tradition that could keep America from committing suicide.

Requiem for Grandma

Growing up on ‘Holt Hill’ in Vendor, Arkansas, I was truly blessed. I had a touch of the ‘Old South’ that I now have oft read of; a true, closed community of my own people who endured hardship, drought and war, and came out stronger as a result.

Of the many giants who walked through my childhood, there is one I feel I have neglected to mention in my past scribblings, one who held the family together through loss and gain, through thick and thin, through hardship and privation and good times and excellent years: my great-grandmother. But I just always called her grandma.

Submit For Your Consideration  

 This has got to stop. I'm talking about the criticism based upon them not adhering to real science. Stop expecting them to adhere to scientific method or principals thereof; this entire bamboozle was never founded upon science. It has bred purely political since the beginning. Just because they ramble on about science this, science that should not conjure the expectation that it is anything to do with science.

They have created an illusion which has played to the perception of anyone who had thought or, especially, those who still cling to the perception that the perpetrators do practice science although wrongly.

To reiterate, this scheme has nothing to do with science. It is the art of the manufactured lie. And you're hooked into it by believing and hoping 'if they would only turn back to science/the truth/admit their errors. Stop it!

They have made no such error. Sure, there have been mistakes but not as you think. Their error is they have lost the chance to hoodwink all the people.

(Perhaps their greatest error was to think they could. Yet why wouldn't they, have you looked at society lately? How wayward must we get.)

However, the single greatest error is of those who have thought the perps have simply strayed, therefore let us show them their error. Again, they have made no such error. 

It is the bonehead who thinks good fruit can be gotten from the corrupt tree. Worse, such thinking marks one as a cultural illiterate patsy.


God Bless you Rick.

Nailed it.

This is Orwell writ large. The perversion of language and marking of the 'intellectual battlespace', kills us every time - you get sucked into a non-sensical debate about the effectiveness of a mitigation strategy instead of arguing that the atrategy isn't needed in the first place!

That's right, argue about masks in public, not whether they're needed at all.

Argue about 'the current definition of vaccinated' instead of the disturbing fact that they do not work as a 'vaccine' in the first place (see how they did that there?).. the jab isn't a vaccine, its mRNA gene therapy adopted from cancer treatments, but you use their word when arguing about it don't you? Guess who's NOT going to win that debate?

Despicable as the Lee family continues to run scared.

 City and state officials have reached an agreement to transfer ownership of the statue and pedestal of Gen. Robert E. Lee to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, which has also agreed to take possession of all the other Confederate memorials removed from Richmond since last year.

Under this arrangement, Richmond’s Black History Museum would work in partnership with the Valentine museum — which has chronicled the city’s history for more than a century — and local community members to determine the fates of the stone and bronze symbols of the Confederacy.

Southern Patriotism and Foreign Military Interventions


Is it un-patriotic for Southerners to question American military intervention? This is a perplexing question for those raised during the Cold War. For us, it was a battle to defeat atheistic communism—an evil power attempting to force its will upon the world. We were raised and educated by the World War II generation for whom patriotism was intricately linked to America’s military power. “America! Love it or leave it,” was our motto. But is Cold War “patriotism” appropriate today?

Joe Martin's Ghost

We now come to the close of the second year of what I like to call "The Great Pandemonium." (TGP) A year marked particularly by irrational behavior brought about by irrational and, more often than not, contradictory public policy as a reaction to, again what I like to call the "Sino-Lung-Rot." (SLR)

But there's this question that is increasing nagging me. As the "Social-Fascists" (Stalin's term not mine) ramp up their hate campaign against the unvaccinated it's rational becomes less tenable by the day. (Seriously legislation was proposed in New York to confine the unvaccinated to camps.) 

Consider the following.

1. After two years the unvaccinated are just that unvaccinated and to this point for all intents and purposes healthy. They can be broken down as follows.

(a) The infected and recovered with natural immunity. (b) The "New Hermit Class"(NHC) that cowers in their basement and have everything delivered. (c) Those who were never susceptible to the SLR in the first place.

2. Even the CDC and the "poisonous dwarf" (Hitler's staff's unspoken nickname for Dr. Goebbels) Fauci admit that the vaccines don't prevent either infection or retransmission of the virus. In spite of this painful exercise in cognitive dissonance we are told "but they are milder infections". Excuse me but isn't the survival rate for those under 80 something like 99.93% And the younger you are the higher the survival rate.

3. Increasing the numbers of active cases of the newest attenuation of the virus in many areas contain more vaccinated than unvaccinated.

I can only conclude then with questions. Why then should the unvaccinated be considered as some lurking, "Typhoid Mary" like repository of pestilence and death? Isn't the vaccinated that are the victims here? Especially given that they remain just as suspectable to infection and unwitting vectors of spreading the infection to others? Isn't that the definition of what the infamous Typhoid Mary was?

Science has never been advanced by a one size fits all, not decent or contrary opinion allowed approach, never. Scientific progress only comes through open, honest debate and most importantly experimentation that explores alternative possible explanation and solutions to problems. The likes of Fauci and the leftist medical and political mafia are no different than the Papacy that "cancelled" and imprisoned the likes of Galileo and Tycho because their theories (based on actual observation and rigorous calculation) exposed the fallacy of the Aristotelian universe.

Unless and until we reject the idea that the scientific and medical universe revolves around the so-called experts like Fauci et al there are dark days ahead.

Biden Admin Sparks Uproar with Plan to Rip Emergency Aid from Rural Areas, Funnel Toward Cities

Rural areas are about to be hit by a Biden administration policy that puts the wants of major cities over the needs of small towns.

Rental assistance that was part of the coronavirus aid package has been spent in an uneven fashion, according to Politico. The Biden administration is planning to take what has not been spent — about half of the $46.5 billion allocated — and give it to areas that have spent the most money, which effectively means major cities.

Every year on my birthday, I re-evaluate what I’m doing and whether that’s working or not. It’s the only notice I give my birthday, because it seems completely irrelevant, except in this one area. This blog will remain, though probably more sporadically than before, because I was forced to recognize that writing these posts and relying on the support of the many readers was not having the effect I wanted to have. In a lot of ways, I consider myself a failure, because I’ve been working diligently on opening minds and providing those who are already awake something to share with friends and family, to help explain their points of view on certain issues, but here we are, I’ve had no effect, it seems. Okay, I’m not a stranger to failure, it doesn’t hurt like the first few, before I realized that hard work and diligence are not a failproof recipe for success. I would suggest that it’s very difficult to succeed without those ingredients, but even with them, one can fail. But far from distancing myself from the eternal struggle for freedom, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are better ways.

Did you have an Omicron Christmas this year?

We sure didn't. We spent a glorious weekend enjoying family, roasting meat, and roasting Joe Biden. But we did have a very China Christmas. Sadly in the midst of the global pandemic and supply chain shortage largely due to fallout from the Chinese virus, it has become more clear than ever that in a Judeo-Christian nation like the United States, we are still somewhat dependent on the massive Communist nation to get all of our stuff. And those of us with children are constantly getting gifted stuff, whether we need it or not.

But China isn't merely exerting its influence on us through plastic toys: enter TikTok, the viral short video platform that seems to be designed almost perfectly to get ADD-minded young people hooked. It has overtaken Google as the most popular global web domain. So, as America's big tech companies have become more international, China's quintessential media brand is taking over the world and with Beijing in control. The TikTok addiction is real; many parents have reported horror stories. But we are most concerned with what this could mean for our values and our productivity if young Americans continue to waste countless millions of hours because we've been enslaved by Chinese tech.

And we know which nation benefits the most if we raise generations of social-media crack heads.

Checking in on the Omicron hysteria: global messaging on the virus is hitting a new level of schizophrenia. President Joey Biden has now abandoned the "shut down the virus" rhetoric and is passing the buck to individual states. Dr. Fauci wants vax mandates on planes, despite the fact that planes have been a remarkably safe place to be during the pandemic due to their state-of-the-art ventilation systems. Bernie Sanders wants mass distribution of N95 masks. If that strategy is going to work, why are we just hearing about it now? We knew about N95 masks 21 months ago when we began lockdowns. The CDC has also shortened the COVID-19 isolation time to five days, but thousands upon thousands of flights have been canceled. More transport workers are expected to quit, which will likely strain the supply chain even more. All of this is leaving Americans either confused or checked out. We are increasingly of the mind that a bifurcated America with some areas free and other areas in a semi-permanent state of "light" lockdown might be the new normal for a while. At least the chaos could benefit markets because any clear pandemic policy that harms Wall Street has not emerged.

An Alabama Christmas



 Each stocking was bulging with oranges, apples, clusters of big raisins, hard candy, nuts"

I have one of my framed letters to Santa Claus and I mainly wanted fruit.

Christmas can be both a wonderful and awful time of the year for many of us.  The holiday has become one associated with worries over holiday debt, sadness from loss, concerns over gatherings, and add into that the calamities of the last few years: the pandemic, politics around the dinner table, and now, worries over the supply chain.  Contrary to the limited horizon of many in this modern age, the holiday is not simply a chance to get out of classes, engage in gluttony, and play video games.

We must remember the joys and losses of our shared family and cultural histories, and part of that is sharing the memories of Christmases past.  The following was written to me by my much beloved great aunt, Mrs. Mary Paul [Pittman] Smyrl, 1899-2006.  She was one of many who sparked my interest in our family history, and I have taken up that task gladly. The following is a letter that she wrote to me in the 1980s after I asked her about her memories of Christmas in northwest Alabama.  Let this be a reminder that we share with one another the bonds of heritage, family, and tradition and it is up to each of us to shoulder the burden to preserve the bonds which our ancestors gifted to us.

The picture is so beautiful that makes people listen, admire and believe that the struggle of the Myanmar people will succeed, because of the full people's protest against the tyranny and because the conscience is still in the police security team, not lost as inhumane as the Chinese army and police in Thien An Mon 4/6/1989. 
The woman kneels down the road, asks the security forces not to suppress the people, a respectable expression of humanity. 
The image of two policemen kneeling down shows the respect for the nun who is no less human. 
Such a humane country will surely triumph over tyranny.

Judge Jeanine: I am ‘stunned’ by this: Former Officer Kim Potter

If you are feeling charitable this Christmas & Prognosis of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Dear Friends of the Abbeville Institute:

James McClellan was a founding father of the Abbeville Institute. He had a law degree and a doctorate in political science. He was a fountain of knowledge on constitutional law and was an authority on the states rights tradition. He was an advisor to Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina.

I am writing because his daughter in law Annie, who is married to Jim's son Angus, has an aggressive form of Triple Negative breast cancer. They have health insurance through his small graduate fellowship at Princeton University. And their families are trying to cover the excess billings and other increased living expenses they now face. But they have had to hire a nanny to watch their three-year-old and a 11-month-old for the next year.

They are facing a $1,000 a week bill for most of the coming year.

If you would like to help them, Annie's sister, Grace, has set up a GoFundMe site.:
Jim passed away before his time. He was a great blessing to the Institute, and your gift, however small, will be a tribute to him.


Don Livingston, President, Abbeville Institute 

GOP Rep. Tom Rice Regrets Jan. 6 Objection Vote, Says Trump ‘Responsible’ for Incident (Being Primaried, by 10 Republicans)


Barbara Arthur

Insurance agent and Christian speaker Arthur, 57, has run very clearly on her opposition to communism as a Cuban-native whose family fled the island in the late 1960s.

“The Biden administration wants to create an America that looks very much like Castro’s Communist Cuba. I will not submit,” she said. “I will be a powerful advocate for the legal citizens of District 7, South Carolina, and America.”

If elected, Barbara said she’d protect constitutional values and oppose what she calls Marxist/socialists in Congress but did not provide specific policy points.

Arthur said she also was inspired to run for Rice’s seat after his vote to impeach Trump, saying he joined the “communist-loving Democrats” and that was the last straw for her.

West Virginia Coal Miner Hits Back: We Contribute More to America than Bette Midler

A West Virginia coal miner reacted to left-wing Hollywood star Bette Midler insulting the people of his state, pointing out that West Virginians contribute far more to the United States than the actress.

“I think my first reaction was, ‘Bette Who?’ I don’t really recall anything that she’s done too significant here in the last little bit,” coal miner Bo Copley told Fox & Friends First on Wednesday.

Copley added that West Virginians aren’t losing any sleep over Midler’s insult, especially given that her career has been at a standstill for a while. “I don’t think a lot of West Virginians are losing sleep over it,” he said. “The only thing to lose sleep over is getting up early and heading out and going to work.”
