Marconi Beach in Wellfleet

October 2, 2015; 4:04 PM ET

While Hurricane Joaquin is no longer expected to make landfall in the United States, coastal flooding, gusty winds and rounds of rain will occur in part of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Making it a lovely day to drive to Cape Cod and Marconi Beach in Wellfleet MA.   After going all that way I left the Nikon in the trunk, so much wind driven rain I couldn’t risk it.

It also meant that I had a lovely time with my handkerchief trying to keep the lens on the expendable Cannon pocket digital clear (clearish?).

Go away,  I'm a turtle.

Go away, I’m a turtle.

Beats my first choice, “I just flew in from the coast and are my arms tired”.

Smoking Gun?

13 Dead In Shooting At Oregon Community College

I have and still maintain that no information you hear on the National News is to be believed and that that truth will come out in bits and pieces over the passage of time, several days at least.


Kortney Moore told The News-Review that she was in Snyder Hall when her teacher got shot in the head. The 18-year-old student said the gunman told people to get down on the ground. He then started to ask people to stand up to state their religion and then started shooting, according to Moore. She said she was lying on the ground with people who were shot.

That sound like the Islamist killers in Paris? In the Kenyan Mall?   Who asks about the victims religion before their murder?

Yup, another Mormon terrorist attack!

Oh! Almost forgot, the College was another “Gun-Free Zone”.   That’s working out great, isn’t it?

Organic reasoning

20 Reasons Not To Feed Your Family Organic

Recently, Mommy-bloggers paid by the organic industry have been hitting the scientific and corporate communities quite hard, with fear campaigns and ‘if you love your children’ guilt trips. Even Hollywood stars are reading from the “Organic is what good mothers do” script.

Ordinarily, eco-religious feel-good pulp from the privileged classes is better left ignored … until mainstream media pick up on them and the marketing managers at large food and restaurant corporations begin to bow to FoodBabeArmy email campaigns.

When I read a rather weak, low-ball piece in Mamavation (“Changing Lives One Mom at a Time”) called “The top 10 reasons to feed your family organic”, I thought: “This is nonsense (albeit, made to make people feel good about themselves).” It challenged me to come up with some reasons not to feed your family organic and to make the point further I used the pro-organic campaigner’s approach – like emotional blackmail, such as “Are you a good mother?”

Here are the Top 20 Reasons Not to Feed your Family Organic:

The way I feel about Organic produce is the same way I feel about the State Lottery.  If some other idiots (who can’t do math) want to waste their money on it then more power to them.   However though I can get along quite nicely without buying a Lottery ticket, I can’t live without food and all that I can grow for myself is tomatoes and herbs.   Unfortunately Organic Foods raise the prices of all produce at the market.  First; what reason does a conventional farmer have to shave their prices if some idiot is willing to pay a 200% markup for an organic head of lettuce?   Then there is the argument that Organic is a religion and their religion is being forced on me (and you).

7. Research shows no difference, at all, in taste, health or safety
This one gets to the organi-gurus the most, especially as taste is an emotional sentiment and thus based on purely anecdotal perception. But in blind taste-tests, time and time again, people could not spot the difference. As far as health and safety issues are concerned, people will believe what they want to believe, but any studies not done by the organic industry lobby simply cannot ground that in evidence.As religion, it is fine to believe that, but don’t call it science.

Also when dealing with SJW, Progressives or the Liberal Elites, anything that starts out as a ‘preferred’ option for the ‘Righteous Gian’s’ soon is made mandatory for everyone.

Over my dead body.

I knew that.

Why is this a surprise?

 These people have never made a secret of their intentions, goals or method by which they work towards their domination of the world.

Hitler lied, “I have no more territorial ambitions in Europe…”.   Ask a Muslim and he’s tell you that in his eyes anywhere Islam has been or can be is Muslim territory, forever.   Why?  Because that’s his religion.   Born of a desert raiding, slave trading psychotic with an imaginary friend.  Did I leave out pedophile?

Don’t tell Barry.
