Brilliant Assessment of the Current Pervasive Madness

How Cultural Revolutions Die – Or Not
by Victor David Hanson

They eat their own, unless a cruel dictator rises to unite and control the mob.

Unlike coups or political revolutions, cultural revolutions don’t just change governments or leaders. Instead, they try to redefine entire societies. Their leaders call them “holistic” and “systematic.”

Cultural revolutionaries attack the very referents of our daily lives. The Jacobins’ so-called Reign of Terror during the French Revolution slaughtered Christian clergy, renamed months, and created a new supreme being: Reason. read more

The World According to Lulu: Find Something to Make You Happy. Even on the Bad Days.

Hello. My name is Lulu. I am a dog. Welcome to my world.

I live in a house. With a yard. With two humans. They are mommy human and daddy human. They are my family. They love me.

Even dogs with families who love them have bad days. This story is meant to remind you it is always possible to find something to make you happy. Even on the bad days.

Recently I had a bad day when mommy human took me to The Vet. The car ride to The Vet always makes me anxious. I do not like The Vet. This time they shaved a little patch of fur off one of my legs so they could stick a needle under my skin. Before I knew it I fell asleep and when I woke up my mouth hurt so bad I thought I would never want to eat again. This is a very big deal because as far as I can remember I have never not wanted to eat. The next time one of my humans takes me to The Vet, I will not to get out of the car. I will fight as hard as I can to stay put, but if they somehow get me out, I will not fall asleep. Bad things happen when you fall asleep at The Vet. read more

Just Another Ordinary Day Sheltering in Place 4/16/2020

Sheltering in place has afforded me the time to ponder certain things. Today I am pondering my hair. I suppose it’s because I am sporting a stylish pixie these days and I am way overdue for a haircut (and color). Check it out.  Please note, I don’t normally wear that much makeup… or sparkly stuff.  I was prepped for a ballroom competition. Anyway, for the first ten years of my life I sported a very short, not-so-cute (or at least that’s how if felt back then) pixie haircut. That’s me… top row, second from the right. read more

The World According to Lulu: Lulu’s List of Things To Like About Shelter in Place

Hello. My name is Lulu. I am a dog. Welcome to my world.

I live in a house. With a yard. With two humans. They are mommy human and daddy human. They are my family. They love me. Lately they have been hanging around the house a lot more than normal.

It is what makes me a good the best dog. My humans are obedient. They are good the best humans. I made a list of the things I like about shelter in place. Here it is. read more

Just Another Ordinary Day Sheltering in Place 4/14/2020

Just another ordinary day sheltering in place…just another Coronavirus Task Force briefing at the White House. I watch them everyday and I have decided my favorite White House correspondents are the ones who, when invited by POTUS to ask a question, begin with Thank you, sir or Thank you, Mr. President. I also discovered I really like Vice President Pence and Surgeon General Jerome Adams. How are these things related? Manners. I like people with good manners.

That’s all.

Just another ordinary day sheltering in place. read more
