Mexico City, 1942

Until I began my latest sojourn in Vancouver, Canada I had lived in Mexico City as long as any other city-- outside my original hometown. Looking at the following video of Mex. D.F. brings to mind any number of happy memories, of nights at the opera, of a drunken climb to the lap of Juarez, to having sex atop the heights of the Zocalo's Grand Hotel, and of the National Palace, which is reportedly built to designs meant for a penitentiary in Peru, the prison there looking like the Palace as it was supposed to be.

I have endless personal memories of Mexico City, many of them good. For those who have never been, the idea of showing this video is to allow one the idea of how different, and in many ways better, was Modernity over post-modernity. I'll leave it for now for the viewer to decide, if only on the face of a short travelogue, to decide if we have given up a major good in favor of an effete and self-indulgent destruction of Progress.

Mothers, let your babies to grow up to be cowboys

A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

'Have you ever done anything of particular merit?' St. Peter asked.

'Well, I can think of one thing,' the cowboy offered. 'On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota , I came upon a gang of bikers, who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen.

So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face ... Kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off or I'll kick the s--- out of all of you!'

St. Peter was impressed, 'When did this happen?'

'Couple of minutes ago.'

What makes that joke so funny is it's probable. What makes so funny those who don't think it's funny is their probability.

The West is so effeminate I could puke. "That's so typical of 'cowboys.' The first thing they do is resort to violence. Look where that got him. And it didn't do the girl any good either. If the cowboy has called 911 he might have had the police come and save the girl. If he'd hidden, he could have tracked down the gang and dealt with them in court, and justice would have been served. And look at what cowboys did to the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Cowboys are all racists. Cowboys are stupid, like Sarah Palin...."

I'm taking a musical break here. Hope you'll join me.

Euro-video: Smart and Stylish

Here's a video I hope you'll like, from Die Realitaet.

Lots of good work coming from Europe, in spite of what we're led to believe by the MSM.

All Hail the MSM!

New Obama theme song hits the airwaves

Now that the British Conservative Party has found a new theme song for its up-coming election campaign, President Obama has informed his White House aides that he too must find a new campaign theme song; and this is it:

Go, Barry. We're behind you all the way. Hey, he's no Sarah Palin. It's a matter of trust.

British Conservative Party's New Campaign Theme Song

David Cameron, leader of Britain's Conservative Party, has officially announced the party's theme song for the up-coming campaign, this designed especially to appeal to our Muslim voters. Said Cameron, "Ours is no longer the party of dinosaurs and reactionary Englishmen; ours is a progressive party; and our new theme song is designed to show all British voters our new and vibrant approach to multi-culturalism and our sensitivity to all British peoples. Because each of us is, in his or her own way, special."

We are progressive Conservatives. Our goal is a fairer, safer, greener country where opportunity is more equal. It's because we are progressives that we will protect the NHS. We recognise its special place in our society so we will improve it for everyone.

More here.

I could make up this stuff, but why bother when reality is so cruel? Look for yourself:
