Having grown up in South Dakota, not far from Minnesota, I thought Minnesotans hardy, rational people–and then they held a fraudulent election and sent Al Franked to the Senate. Not funny. Since then, Franken has shown himself to be one of the least funny people in America, and easily one of the most hypocritical and corruptly, insanely partisan. The mere idea of Franken as a U.S. Senator is like the end of Animal House, where a montage of character’s futures revealed Bluto as Senator John Blutarsky.

One of the advantages of writing this scruffy little blog, compared with, say, being a “journalist,” is I am not generally off in mad pursuit of deadlines. I can take the time to sample the wares of journalists, do a bit of more in-depth research, actually think, and eventually produce an opinion piece on issues of interest. One recent cogitation regarded the forty-year-old accusations against Judge Roy Moore surfacing in The Washington Post—the scourge of Republicans everywhere—just before an election.

One entered the service academies for a government-paid education only after a rigorous, competitive vetting process designed to identify admit scholar/athletes, the best of the best, young people able, indeed willing, to adopt and live the “duty, honor, country” mindset. But Obama and his minions destroyed all of that. Our military, and the academies, became social justice laboratories with all their deranged pathologies. High-ranking officers with the warrior mindset were purged and replaced by weak men and women willing, perhaps anxious, to swear allegiance to Barack Obama and to the diversity, transgenderism, desertion in combat and treason for which he stood. As a result, our military’s readiness dropped, ships began running into things, Marines scrounge in aircraft boneyards for parts, because their planes can’t fly, and at the Air Force Academy:
