The Day After Thanksgiving with Christine



Going Home for Christmas

 May be an image of road, mountain, tree and text that says 'Going Home for Christmas'
I’m going home for Christmas,
Six hundred miles away,
My trunk is full of presents,
I will, give on Christmas Day.
I know that Mama’s waiting,
She’ll be there by the door,
Her arms outstretched, to hug me tight,
That’s what she’s waiting for.
Daddy cut a Christmas tree,
It’s up, with colored lights,
With ornaments, we’ve had for years,
It truly is a sight.
My sister put on tinsel strands,
And things, she made in school,
Mama’s baking cakes and pies,
I know will make me drool.
I’m going home for Christmas,
I’ll see my Uncle John,
I’ll enjoy his tales of yore,
As he goes on and on.
Granny, Grandpa will be there,
At each end of the table,
Cousin Betty might be there,
But only, if she’s able.
I’m going home for Christmas,
I know it will be fun,
I’ll get to share, my love and care,
With each and every one.
When dinner time is over,
Then gifts, beneath the tree,
I bought some for everyone,
And they’ll have some for me.
Alas, my Granny, Grandpa too,
And Betty, Uncle John,
Mama, Daddy, sister too,
Each one, has all gone on.
I’m going home for Christmas,
In memory and smiles,
As I sit in my easy chair,
And go six hundred miles.

A Country Store

 May be an image of outdoors
A small sign on the windowpane,
Said “Closed”, they’ve moved away,
They closed the store, seems years before,
It’s seen its better day.
An “open” sign, rest on the ground,
No longer has a use,
Time and neglect, so obvious,
It suffers from abuse.
Was once a thriving, country store,
Now stands, dilapidated,
That times have changed, things rearranged,
Cannot be understated.
The main highway, six miles away,
Sells gas that’s ten cents less,
Stocks items at a lower price,
Which speaks of our progress.
But is it really progress when,
You can’t get local news,
A place to sit and chat a bit,
And hear your neighbor’s views.
Where you can charge, till payday comes,
And play a game of checkers,
Where you can buy, hand dipped Ice cream,
Perhaps a double decker.
Warm yourself, a cast iron stove,
On cold, wet, rainy days,
Tell a joke or brag a bit,
In friendly, sorts of ways.
No, once they’re gone, and they’ve moved on,
Then there won’t be no more,
Nothing else, can ‘ere replace,
That good, old, country store.

Scenes Unseen from the Racial Landscape

 Fred Reed

“A country deserves what it tolerates, and will assuredly get more of it,” said my favorite political commentator (me).

He has also asked, “This is supposed to help blacks?”

Across the country the rabble rampage, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and mobs sacking stores. They are by no means all black. Whites participate in the vandalism, blacks do the looting and beatings of whites. Both are out of control. Anger over this quietly grows. A spring is being wound, methinks, a hammer cocked, the scene set for a grisly outbreak of racial bloodshed.

The backdrop will be the hatred between Elites and Deplorables, exacerbated by a declining economy, financial anxiety for the future, anger over immigration, the epidemic, and so on. Yet it is race that will provide the spark.

Does this sound like unbalanced raving? If I had told you the day before the Floyd incident that in a few days cities across the country would be if flames with looting and vandalism, would you have thought me unbalanced?

For whatever reason, catastrophic racial realities exist, disguised and hidden by the White House and the media. Maybe these think they are preventing, or postponing, and explosion that might occur if people knew what was happening. Maybe they are stroking their voters. This video, of actual events, catches the straits in which America finds itself. The degree to which it shocks you is a measure of the effectiveness of the journalistic suppression.

The political landscape is of course complex. In a curious twist the white Elites use blacks against their Deplorable enemies, claiming and perhaps sometimes believing that they are opposing racism. To this end they eliminate bail, defund the police, hide crime by blacks, order the police not to use tear gas and rubber bullets.  Police resign in droves, not wanting to be the next Chauvin. Homicide rises sharply. Looting flourishes.

Crime by blacks is now barely restricted, and reported as little as the big media can manage.    For example, Thirty-two Black on White Homicides, for October. These typically appear for a couple of days in local papers but are never picked up by the majors     

The results of the unpolicy?

Seattle has become so dangerous that police have to walk the city’s employees to transportation after work.

The great majority of blacks do not do these things, but the great majority of those who do these things are black. The white and Asian victims will notice this. People remember who did, not who didn’t. Anger will grow, grows. This is a very bad thing.

We now see stores selling expensive goods attacked by organized flash packs, windows smashed and wares stolen, in minutes. The looters are not Japanese school girls. In San Francisco, where shoplifting is virtually legal, store after store leaves for friendlier climes, unable to withstand the losses. Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, a region of stores selling prestige goods, now has many empty stores because of looting. Goodbye tax base. Shortly, goodbye middle class. There is no reason for these robberies to end since they are profitable and almost free of risk.

How can the spreading lawlessness be stopped? Easily, but not nicely. Throwing a brick at a policeman is at least ADW, assault with a deadly weapon, and arguably attempted murder, twenty to life. Apply it. Lighting buildings or cars is arson. So charge it and throw the book. Allow store owners to shoot looters. But this we will not do, or at least not yet, and nothing else will work.

The brighter among the woke worry that if ever whites develop a racial consciousness like that of blacks, things will get very, very ugly. Thus the hysteria over White Supremacy. Unfortunately, the best way to promote white consciousness is exactly what the woke are doing--to encourage crime by blacks, allow the beatings, and endlessly pummel whites for racism. The woke are working hard at getting exactly what they don’t want. They are not doing blacks a favor. If an explosion comes, it will be bad for whites but worse by far for blacks who, whether they like to admit it or not, depend on whites for much. The country would never recover.

Journalists, perhaps lacking the wit to understand what they are doing, labor to intensify racial hostility. In particular, they relentlessly tell blacks that they are victims of whites, that they are being killed in large numbers by white police, while suppressing the fact that far more whites are killed by blacks. This understandably enrages blacks who, emotional, less educated than whites, reading little, believe it.

Having worked in the scrivener’s trade, I partly blame the joy of shared indignation and a diminishment of the former belief in fact-checking. (It used to be said, “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” No more.) Wild partisanship adds to the problem. The journalists of Washington read each other, write for each other, talk to each other and, finding that they all think the same things, assume that they must be right, because they all think the same things.

Further, networks run by people of a particular view hire people who agree with them. Reporters too seem gripped by the free-floating anger that afflicts America as a whole. Bingo.

Remember that the strongest human proclivity, stronger than the sex drive, is to avoid information working against ardently held beliefs. Liberals do not, will not, read Fox News or American Renaissance, and conservatives avoid Salon and NPR. It is curious that reporters, whose job is to know what goes on in America, largely don’t.

Remember also that that the networks have limited news-gathering ability compared to freelance websites. During the Floyd riots, hundreds, maybe thousands, of people with smartphones recorded video of looting, vandalism, and beatings. These were posted, and circulated, freely on the net, but not on CNN. They showed the looters to be almost entirely black.  The vandals no, but the looters, yes. In my (now limited) acquaintance with the media in Washington, they really don’t know what is happening.

The upshot? It would be a very good idea to stop the lawlessness, the racial attacks, and the mob robberies before those targeted decide to take things into their own hands.

For the literarily inclined, perhaps worth contemplation:


by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Comment on "LA Firefighter Accused of Wiping Butt With Vaccine Mandate Letter That Was Handed to Him & NY Emergency Room Shuts Down After Workers Forced Out By Vaccine Mandate":

 "LA Firefighter Accused of Wiping Butt With Vaccine Mandate Letter That Was Handed to Him & NY
LargeMarge has left a new comment on the post "LA Firefighter Accused of Wiping Butt With Vaccine Mandate Letter That Was Handed to Him & NY Emergency Room Shuts Down After Workers Forced Out By Vaccine Mandate":

Free North Carolina: LA Firefighter Accused of Wiping Butt ...

Heart-breaker story:
Yesterday at the pharmacy, a masked grandmother and masked mother were 'working over-time' convincing a ten-year old young man to take the trendy 'influenza' inoculation.
He struggled against their physical restraints while crying and yelling "NO! IT'S POISON! I DON'T WANT TO!"

The masked pharmacist, a mid-thirties Caucasian male, repeatedly offered to not inoculate the child, but the two female guardians were adamant... "HE NEEDS IT! HE HAS TO HAVE IT!".

My stomach flopped at the realization this scenario is playing at nearly every physician, almost every job, every clinic and hospital, every government school nurse.
* What is the difference between inserting something foreign into an unwilling weaker person... and rape?
* At what point is that abuse?
* With the government agents aligned against Pure Bloods, who protects the children?

An aside:
University Of Idaho associate-professor teresa loar physically assaulted an attendee at a meeting... because her victim questioned the sanity of requiring university students to wear masks at all times while on-campus.
The associate-professor raged "HOW AM I GOING TO MANDATE ALL MY STUDENTS TO WEAR MASKS IN MY CLASS IF THE UNIVERSITY DOESN'T REQUIRE THEM TO!" (she said, somewhat illiterately).
The associate-professor teaches biology.
Now, it seems to me, a biologist ought to understand research and statistics, and have some grasp of encouraging open discussion.
Coeur d'Alene LawEnforcementOfficials charged her with misdemeanor assault.
At what point is the pharmacist guilty of assault, inflicting grievous bodily harm?
At what point are the two female guardians guilty of abuse?

New Jan. 6 Footage: Retired General Says BLM, Antifa Both at Capitol Break-In

In the aftermath of Jan. 6, the FBI suggested there was no evidence of Black Lives Matter or antifa members participating in the events. However, many Americans with knowledge of the events questioned this suggestion.

In “Capitol Punishment,” Jan. 6 attendees tell the true story of that day instead of the narratives pushed by the establishment media. The film premieres today — Thanksgiving Day — and you can get your copy now.

Sheriff Sued for Reporting Illegal Alien Criminals to ICE

 In a distressing sign of the times, the official elected to enforce the law in a major U.S. County is being sued for transferring illegal immigrant criminals to federal authorities. Collaborating with the feds—rather than releasing illegal alien offenders back into the community—compounds racial disparities in the policing, immigration, and criminal justice systems, in which black and Latinx communities are disproportionately targeted for arrest, detention, and deportation. At least that is what the leftist civil rights group that filed the lawsuit this week claims. The scary part is that the local law enforcement agency will probably lose the legal battle because the entire state is a sanctuary for illegal immigrants and official measures have been enacted to protect the undocumented from deportation.

The Indian Bar Association is reporting that murder charges have been filed in India’s High Court against two billionaires responsible for the AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, Covishield, for the murder of a 23-year-old man who was injected with the shot.

The two named defendants are Bill Gates, and Adar Poonawalla, the CEO of Serum Institute of India (SII), reportedly the world’s largest vaccine maker. According to corporate news sources, Adar Poonawalla’s company produces not only the COVID-19 vaccine Covishield, but also over 50% of the world’s vaccines that are injected into babies.
