Bits & Bytes

ANNIVERSARY: Thanks to all y’all too! A blog isn’t worth much without readers. 🙂

CATHOLIC: Because of low Mass attendance, this New York priest stood outside a grocery store. Afterwards, Mass attendance increased “exponentially.”

MARK STEYN: CLICK [3:57] to watch an epic, satirical rant about a sad, lonely man who gets paid to bitch about conservatives on the internet.

MERRICK GARLAND: FAUXTUS’ nominee for Attorney General was once Obama’s nominee for SCOTUS. During his nomination hearing, he was asked if he believes that illegally crossing our borders should remain a crime. He hemmed and hawed and said he didn’t know, because he’d never thought about it.

Then, he was asked if he would prosecute people who enter the country illegally and replied, “This is again, ah, uh, a question of allocation of resources. We will uh, the department, will um ah um, I don’t know.”

When asked if he considers Antifa and Black Lives Matter attacks on the courthouse in Portland to be “domestic terrorism,” Garland said his personal definition of domestic terrorism is the use of violence or threats of violence to interrupt the democratic process, therefore, attacks on buildings at night probably don’t count.

Comment: “Of course, the goal of the attacks is likely to stop the function of the people working in the buildings during the day — but that doesn’t seem to have crossed the potential Attorney General’s mind.”

Comment: “Seems like he’s less concerned with our ‘democratic institutions’ and more concerned about ‘Democratic Party institutions.’”

Comment: “What a LOSS we had when this articulate, insightful, far-seeing speaker was not sent to the Supreme Court!

NATIONAL DEBT: Only $825 billion goes to actual COVID-related items. $1 trillion is for pork and pet projects.

I’ve given up hope that the national debt won’t destroy us. If Trump had had 4 more years, maybe he could’ve brought it under control. Now I’m just waiting for China to foreclose.

OBAMA’S 3d TERM: CLICK to see Benny Johnson’s February 7 commentary on Democrat leadership so far. [11:44] – It makes you wonder why people who claim to value diversity keep electing really old white people.

PRAVDA: Democrats on the House subcommittee on Communications and Technology (part of the Committee on Energy and Commerce) are waging war on the first amendment. They plan to hold a hearing on disinformation and extremism in media,but their targets are limited to Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN. Their “crimes against truth” include airing information about COVID-19, the 2020 election, and the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6 that doesn’t toe the Democratic Party line.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: Posted by Teresa Headley: “I witnessed this sanitation employee return a trash can to the side door of an elderly ladys home this morning. After speaking with her I learned that her mobility is limited and this man does this for her every week. It may seem so insignificant to you or me, but to her it’s greatly appreciated! Small acts of kindness, such as this, will not the world, but it changes her world. I didn’t get you name sir, but you are awesome!

SCOTUS: The Supreme Court today decided against hearing election fraud cases. Justice Clarence Thomas slammed the decision saying, “One wonders what this Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. … By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more from us.”

TRUMPERS: A recent USA Today poll found that 73% of Trump voters believe Joe Biden was not legitimately elected.

GRAMMY NOTES: Mama Buzz called to tell me a story she had heard on the radio. I haven’t found it on the ‘net, but it’s too cool not to share.

Some good folks who wanted to help Texans decided to donate as much clean, bottled water as they could afford to purchase and transport. It filled a tractor trailer.

As they were traveling to deliver it, three tires blew out. They called the agency they were headed for and said they didn’t think they would make it. They were told that area had enough water, but the town where they broke down really needed it! Even better, when they delivered it, they were told, “Our church prayed for water this morning.”

Who knew angels would blow out tires to get the job done! LOL
