Radio Time

I thought this radio show went particularly well.

"Join host Gary Wellings and Ed Bonderenka as they discuss the naval collision of the USS Fitzgerald, the FBI's Deputy Rod Rosenstein statement on fake news, James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ties to democrats and whether he should be recused from any investigation, shooting of GOP representatives"

Drain the Swamp

Mr. President, stop tweeting, start doing. Drain the swamp.
Reinstate Sessions, Fire Mueller. Take charge.
What could the consequence be? A media backlash?
How could we tell the difference?

Father's Day

I have many memories of my dad.
A lot of them of him asleep in a chair in the evening after long hours providing for the family.
He and I were never friends or buddies as I was growing up.
Often, he was who my mom spoke of when she'd say:
"Wait til your father gets home.",
something I did not look forward to at those times.
But he transferred to me many of his positive qualities and I hear his voice when I speak.
That's not a bad thing.
I got to know him a lot better in the years before his death when we spent every Saturday together as the six months he was given to live stretched into six years.

I miss him, but I will see him again because of the grace and mercy of our mutual Father.

Self Promotion

What!? This blog has been nominated for the Paul Revere Award this year. Per the sponsoring blog Political Clown Parade, "The Paul Revere Award is dedicated to those bloggers who hold down jobs and raise their families while standing guard over liberty." 

Poll Is Now Open: Begin Voting For The Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award
Thanks, guys, for including me on this prodigious list of blogiliciousness. It truly is an honor. I'd like to thank all of the bots for the fake hit count, and all the good folks who googled "why do my dog's teeth chatter" and regret clicking the link here. You ALL deserve to share in this award. 

This nomination comes at a time when my blogging is becoming more sporadic and infrequent due to the busy schedule of late. This is only my fifth post so far this month, down from a 2017 high in January of 23 total posts. I am left to conclude that the rarer my posts become, the more the need for rewarding this lack of effort. 

That being the case, please head on over to the Political Clown Parade and vote for Not of This World blog. I have no chance of winning (based on the competition), but if my vote total reaches double digits, I vow to blog even more meagerly during the summer months.

You are allowed to vote only once, but for as many blogs as you wish, so vote for my friends who also were nominated. Z at GeeeZ, Kid at Diary of a Right Wing Pussycat, AOW, and Jerry at Chattering Teeth. The list is missing a few of my favorites, but I won't treat you any differently (even though I'm better than you).

Thanks, Jerry. I couldn't have done it without you

Normandy

On this day in 1944, my Dad, Nate Weiser and a lot of other guys visited Europe.
With guns.
To set her free from invaders who had subjugated her.
Today, they invite invaders to subjugate them.
What a shame.

But we'll never have Paris

The most important thing about Trump dumping the Paris Agreement is that it was a restoration of the rule of law.

King Obama signed the agreement without ratification by the Senate because he knew it would never be accepted, ratified, by the representative government of the nation, as required by the Constitution.

Death to the king.

The Rule of Law, not the Law of Rule.
