Somewhat belatedly. Born Eric Arthur Blair, in India, on June 25th, 1903.
It is hardly the man’s fault that his seminal work, written as a chilling dystopian warning regarding the destruction of liberty, has become an instruction manual for the far-Left “Liberal” Secular-Progressive Statists who now hold the levers of power in our once-great Republic.
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”
“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.”
“They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.”
If you refuse to agree that 2 + 2 = 5, you are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-child, and probably watch Fox News.

I almost spit out my coffee. Carol is awesome. Just awesome. These days, she makes Shane look like Stuart Smalley.

Another excellent Christmas gift from our gracious host. I have been remiss in not posting this earlier. Thanks, XBRAD. Your gift will let me stay warm inside when the wind chill is -30 (like today), or when forced to contemplate our invertebrate Chief Executive, or our eroding liberties, or our lemming-like voter base….

From the Daily Mail:
Bill Clinton identified in lawsuit against his former friend and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had ‘regular’ orgies at his Caribbean compound that the former president visited multiple times
I am sure we will be told that Bill knew nothing of this activity, and was horrified when he found out. Just like when Bath House Barry suddenly discovered Revven’ Jeremiah Wright was a hateful race-baiting anti-Semite after twenty years of listening to his “sermons”.
Flight logs pinpoint Clinton’s trips on Epstein’s jet between the years 2002 and 2005, while he was working on his philanthropic post-presidential career and while his wife Hillary was a Senator for their adopted state of New York.
‘I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind fo thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me a favor,’ one unidentified woman said in the lawsuit, which was filed in Palm Beach Circuit Court.
The woman went on to say how orgies were a regular occurrence and she recalled two young girls from New York who were always seen around the five-house compound but their personal backstories were never revealed.
At least one woman on the compound was there unwillingly, as the suit identifies a woman as Jane Doe 102.
She ‘was forced to live as one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves for years and was forced to have sex with… politicians, businessmen, royalty, academicians, etc,’ the lawsuit says according to The Enquirer.
Epstein’s sexual exploits have been documented since 2005, when a woman in Palm Beach contacted police saying that her 14-year-old daughter had been paid $300 to massage him and then have sex.
I would wager that Hillary will claim it is all a vast right-wing conspiracy. And here I was thinking the War on Women was all about Georgetown not paying for Sandra Fluke’s birth control…
Still my favorite.
Happy Birthday, Marines! Semper Fidelis!
Oh good Lordy. From our laugh-till-you-cry funny friends at The Duffel Blog.
BEIJING, China — According to Chinese news agencies, the head of a People’s Liberation Army unit of military hackers is planning to file a formal complaint today with the United States Department of Defense after a number of what were called “disturbing” conversations with “American military perverts.”
Senior Colonel Bo Wang of the People’s Glorious Facebook Battalion is one of thousands of Chinese military personnel who spend all-day attempting to infiltrate the social media profiles of US military and intelligence personnel with fake accounts.
Once a target is identified, the hacker will create a false profile, usually of an attractive member of the opposite sex, and ‘friend’ the target. Over time, a successful hacker can friend almost an entire unit and learn valuable information about military or intelligence plans.
The problem, as Colonel Wang soon found out, is that the majority of his targets are young American servicemen, most of whom only agree to friend requests because they expect sexual favors at some point.
The rest is definitely not safe for work. Or most anything else. But jee-ZUS is it funny!
