White Mountains

We drove to Franconia New Hampshire and took photos along the way.

(been to long since I’ve done this)

As I said we drove.

Not much color A-Tall until we reached the White Mountain area.

Stopped at the visitor center, did the usual things.  (Marsha, I assume you would rather I didn’t publish your picture?)

Then we headed home, stopped in Salem for dinner.  Sorry to report that Polcaris Italian Restaurant is closed.  First opened in the North End, and famous for it’s food, I liked to stop there for lunch.  Moved to Sagus MA  and still good.  Finally found it in Salem NH, still enjoyable.  Wonder why it closed?

Update and correction: Polcaris in Saugus is still open and I was unaware that Regina Pizzeria is owned by the Polcari family.

Doug: The Americans With No Abilities Act (ANAA)

The Democrat Senators are considering sweeping legislation that would provide new benefits for many more Americans.   The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills and ambition. 

 
“Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,” said California Sen. Barbara Boxer.   “We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over.   With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing.” 
 
In a Capitol Hill press conference, Nancy Pelosi pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance.   At the state government level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons with No Ability (63 percent). 
 
Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance. 
 
Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees.   The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a significant number of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management positions, and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires. 
 
Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory interview questions such as, “Do you have any skills or experience that relate to this job?” 
 
“As a non-abled person, I can’t be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them,” said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich., due to her inability to remember “righty tighty, lefty loosey”.   “This new law should be real good for people like me.   I’ll finally have job security.”   With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. 
 
Said Sen. Dick Durbin, II: “As a senator with no abilities, I believe the same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every American with no abilities.   It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing so.”


This message was approved by Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Maxine (WaWa) Waters & Nancy Pelosi.

PR Mayors investigated. President Trump looking good.

Puerto Rican Mayors Investigated For Hoarding Supplies For “Constituents Who Voted For Them”

And while CNN was all too happy to run with a new narrative essentially accusing the White House of racism for it’s ‘poor’ response in Puerto Rico, a new report from Metro this morning could prove the President was right all along and that it was local mayors hindering disaster recovery efforts on the Caribbean island and not a lack of federal support.

As Metro reports, the U.S. Attorney in San Juan is now opening an investigation into whether or not local mayors around Puerto Rico have been withholding supplies from residents and/or only delivering them to “constituents who had voted for them.”

“This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor,” said Rodríguez, who then indicated that the case is already being investigated.

He added that he also received confidences from another islander whose official was also keeping supplies for “constituents who had voted for that person.”

“This is not the time to do politics … this is the time to help and to be kind to others. This is a tragedy and nobody should take advantage of the aid,” said Rodriguez, adding that if they manage to prove the indications, the accusations will arrive” no matter which party, or whoever.”

And from the Washington Post…sweet!

Trump scores a win in the culture war as NFL seeks to ensure players stand for national anthem

“This is yet another example where President Trump has weighed in on an issue that might not be front and center for every American, but it evokes a lot of emotion for people across the country in a way that many of the media elites never quite get,” said a former Trump campaign aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity because his current employer did not authorize him to speak on the record. “Most folks in Middle America look at this as a no-brainer: ‘Of course we should be standing for the national anthem,’ ” this person said, adding, “Who would have thought the NFL would have caved so quickly?”

October 7: The Feast of Our Lady of Victory

The Battle of Lepanto

For those who know little history, today’s battle with the Islamic State in the Middle East may seem new and unprecedented. It is not. In a.d. 622, Mohammed set out from Medina to conquer the whole Christian world for Allah by force of arms. Within a hundred years, his successors had occupied and pillaged every Christian capital of the Middle East, from Antioch through North Africa (home of Saint Augustine) and Spain. All that remained outside Allah’s reign was the northern arc from Southern France to Constantinople. What we are seeing in 2014 has a history of more than 1,300 years — a very bloody, terror-ridden history. Except that today the struggle is far, far more secular than religious — a war over political institutions and systems of law, with almost no public argument over religious doctrine.

1571, October 7th.

The Battle of Lepanto.  After decades of attacks on coastal cities in Greece, the Balkans, Italy, France and Spain; the great Islamic fleet that was assembled for conquest was brought to battle by a Christian Fleet from many nations and city-states.

The British are justifiably proud of what they did in 1588 and the Battle of Britain.   But if the Christians had lost at Lepanto, very likely it would have been a Muslim Europe in 1940.

1683, September 11-12.

Vienna, The Siege of.  September 11th (funny that?) 1683 the Muslim-Turkish forces outside of an exhausted Vienna were attacked by the Catholic relief armies of Poland and Hungary.

To those who say that violence has never solved anything…Bullshit!  Without the courage, blood and sacrifice of our Christian fore-bearers, we would be slaves to an insane demon cult of slavers.

Doug: Our useless colony.

Good morning All

CULTURAL CAVIAR

Puerto Rico is a test case of whether nationalism is as dispensable as the heightening conventional wisdom assumes.

Puerto Rico possesses many of the attributes assumed to represent the utopian post-national future, such as open borders with the United States, diversity, and a lack of national sovereignty.

Yet, as demonstrated once again by the current post-hurricane crisis of electricity outages, in part caused by the power company failing to trim trees, Puerto Rico is instead a pit of corruption and fecklessness.

Obviously, U.S. taxpayers will wind up paying to turn the electricity back on.   But Puerto Rico is illuminating about the long-run sustainability of any system not based on national sovereignty and accountability. 

Nobody washes a rented car and nobody treats Puerto Rico like it’s his or her own country.
