Dinner at Casa Bingley.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:40 pm

This past week was one for the books in which the only things more crazy than the Tucson shooter himself were the wild and irresponsible charges being hurled around by the jackasses on the Left and their friends in the media. It was positively infuriating, which is why having been invited to have dinner at Casa Bingley was just what the doctor ordered.

The drinks and food were fabulous, as was the hospitality of Mr. Bingley and his family. Ol’ Bingley is quite the chef. Other blogger guests included Fausta, Gregor and Suzette (with the oft-mentioned and most excellent Sammi). Also in attendance was blog reader and commenter, Real JeffS, who was in town from Washington State. One of the major bonuses of blogging is having the opportunity to meet and hang with the fascinating people who make the words happen in the blogosphere. We had a wonderful time.

Again, thanks to Mr. Bingley and family for providing an evening of fun to cap off a dreadful week. I needed that.

The Tucson “Memorial”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:26 pm

I wrote five paragraphs about my impressions of the “Memorial” in Tucson and the President’s speech, which seemed to give lots of people, including some conservatives, a case of the vapors. I deleted the paragraphs, when I realized that I couldn’t call “Bullshit” better than Tammy Bruce did.

Machiavelli would be proud of the mileage the Left has gotten out of this horrible, horrible tragedy.

Paging Dorian Gray.

Lately, when I look in the mirror I see my father looking back at me.

We all like to think that we are aging gracefully, and some people do, but some surely don’t. This is a universal truth with which we all must contend. It applies even to rich and famous rock stars. Take a look.

Speaking of “Vitriol” ….

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:27 pm

Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane. (Language Warning)

And then there is this, which, at warp speed, followed the shootings in Tucson. (Strong Language Warning)

Somehow this stuff has managed to escape the attention of the Mainstream Media.

A Few Post-Tucson Thoughts.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 3:24 pm

After having watched countless hours of television coverage of the event and reading numerous articles written about the horrible shootings in Tucson, I am sadly convinced that the democrat left has used this event to develop its latest talking point. That conclusion is inescapable when virtually scores of democrat pols, pundits and alleged journalists have all suddenly begun using the words “vitriol” (or similar words) and “rhetoric” in the same sentence, clearly aimed at conservatives in the media, in politics and at conservatives in general.

Apparently, the “Racist!” charge against anyone who opposes the rogues in the present administration has lost its usefulness and the new meme is to screech that vocal opposition to the present administration necessarily results in supermarket shooting sprees. Indeed, one of my idiot senators from New Jersey said that “America must not tolerate violence or [wait … for … it…] inflammatory rhetoric that incites political violence.” (emphasis mine)

Oh, wait. I just referred to a United States Senator as an “idiot.” I presume that such words will still be “tolerated” and that I’m still allowed to voice such an opinion without being accused of being complicit in the commission of multiple murders.

Two final thoughts:

1. All civilized people certainly agree that what took place in Tucson was unspeakably horrible and cannot, under any circumstances, be excused or tolerated.

2. All people who can, for one second, put their politics aside and examine the facts that have emerged so far about the killer must agree that we are dealing with someone with a rich history of mental and behavioral abnormalities (i.e. a nutbar).

That is all.

Note: It was pointed out to me by Ed that I have been spelling Tucson incorrectly. I’d like to blame my nasty cold, but it is one of those words that I believe I have been spelling incorrectly until today. Thanks, Ed.

Update to Note: I just noticed that the online version of the New Jersey Law Journal misspelled Tucson the same way I did. “Among the six dead in the aftermath of a gunman’s rampage in Tuscon that seriously injured U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was Judge John Roll, 63, chief judge …”. Maybe it’s a lawyer thing.

Current events are toxic.

Television “news” (all of it) is toxic.

The blogosphere is toxic.

I have a rotten cold, and I’m toxic.

I’m not playing today.

I may not play tomorrow.

That is all.

Tragedy in Tucson.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:25 pm

No snark here today in view of the horrific shootings in Tucson, which resulted in Representative Gabrielle Giffords being critically wounded and the death of several others, including a federal district court judge and a nine-year old child.

My thoughts are with the victims and their families.
