In Tyrie Nichols the MSM/Left has finally found a case of black on black violence that they find newsworthy enough to publicly disapprove of


There are a lot of fine blogs and substack accounts out there worth making a free or cash subscription to, (I humbly suggest considering mine as I have writers to pay) but the best case I’ve seen made by someone to hit the button lately has come from Don Surber this morning with his spectacular piece on the better of the John Kennedys who served in the Senate:

  • “You will never win—never—the uber-woke sweepstakes. I understand that the pressure to run that race is fierce. You will never win it. Nothing you do will ever be enough. The uber-woke people in positions of power in this town think America was evil when it was founded and it’s even more evil today. You’re not going to convince them otherwise.”

He spoke that truth to power at a hearing on September 22, 2017, to Charles W. Scharf of Wells Fargo & Company, Brian Thomas Moynihan of Bank of America, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co., Jane Fraser of Citigroup, William H. Rogers Jr. of Truist Financial Corporation, Andy Cecere of U.S. Bancorp and William S. Demchak of PNC Financial Services Group.

If that line alone doesn’t get you loving Senator Kennedy nothing will and if this piece doesn’t get you to subscribe to Mr. Surber’s substack nothing will


This week Project Veritas put out what was likely the single most important video it ever did, catching a Pfizer exec going on about mutating the COVID etc. It’s the type of expose that can change the narrative.

Within two days Youtube banned the video and gave him a strike. It “violated their guidelines” not because it was false, but because it was true.

This is going to cost people their lives.

One must under the rules of Christianity love your enemies but as Youtube is a corporation and not a person I don’t think I’m violating rules by awaiting the day of the company’s fall with some anticipation.

Remember once upon a time AOL ruled the roost too.


Went to the local comic store today to pick up Groo and Usagi Yojimbo. The only two comics I still read new. Their creators eighty five year old Sergio Argones (Groo) and sixty nine year old Stan Sakai (Usagi) have been doing their respective two comics for over 45 years (Sakai actually got his start lettering Groo and still does). I don’t go there much as there is a large sign on the door nothing CDC mask recommendations and suggesting people wear them (when I went yesterday nobody had one on) which turns me off but there was one thing worth noting.

Back in the 1980’s when I owned a comic store there were a couple of reprint series out there (Marvel Tales immediately comes to mind) but today it seems every third comic featured is a reprint of a comic from the 60’s or 80’s or 90’s.

Comic stores have apparently figured out they need something other than woke to sustain a business.

Still highly recommend both Groo & Usagi


Finally Yesterday I was watching an old Cary Grant Movie Father Goose (1964) a comedy about a drunken coast watcher who gets stuck with a 30 something year old woman and a bunch of kids from a girls school.

It’s a quaint movie but I don’t recommend watching it right after watched Mark Felton’s audio about the treatment of captive women by the Japanese in World War 2.

The movie gets very serious when you consider what happens if they’re caught.

Monopoly & Groo the Crash and Burn version

Does Monopoly look become boring after a while? Want to spice it up. Our gaming group has figured out a way. Combine it with GROO the Cardgame!

What you need to play;

A Standard Monopoly set.
One Groo movement dice from the Groo Game
A Groohead dice from the Groo game
Either a second Groohead dice OR a Groo miniature.

Special Groo Rules:
Groo is the last player who moves. Roll the regular dice, the Groo Dice and the Groohead dice.
Move Groo the number of squares indicated on the dice adjusted by the Groo Movement dice. (Left or right) as shown. Then examine the Groohead dice.
If the result is anything other than Groohead continue to the next player.

If a Groohead comes up Groo being Groo causes destruction as Follows:

If the property contains a Hotel It is reduced to 4 houses
If the property contains houses one house is removed.
If the property contains no houses it MUST be mortgaged. The owner of the property gets no compensation for this.
If the property is mortgaged then it is returned to the bank
If the property is unowned then it is Mortgaged WITHIN the bank. A player who lands on it may purchase it but it must be purchased as a mortgaged property and unmortgaged per regular rules
If groo lands on a unowned mortgaged property that property is permanently removed from the game the set may not be acquired or built upon.

Groo has the following effects non-property squares:

Nobody may collect money from passing GO if Groo is on GO
If Groo lands on Free Parking any money is the middle goes back to the bank.
If Groo lands on chance and/or community chest draw the card shown. If he is moved to a location treat said movement as if he landed there.
If Groo is already on a property owned by a player that contains houses and the player draws the “pay for house or hotel card” ALL houses on that property are removed (Groo attempts to help repair said property with predictable results)


Groo Rampage

If Groo lands on chance or community Chest and draws Pay for each house or Hotel all properties on the board lose one house.
If Groo lands on Just visiting all players in Jail immediately roll one dice and move away from the jail. All players ignore any “Go to Jail” result if Groo is visiting.

Sharing a space with Groo.

If Groo lands on a property that you are on there is no additional effect all damage is to the property.
If you are on a “paying” space (such as Luxury Tax) and Groo lands on it you must pay the price of the property a second time.

If you land on Groo you must pay him to go away. The cost to make him go away is equal to price of the property that you are on. A “Get out of Jail Free” card may be used.
If you land on Groo when he is not on a paying property do not roll the dice for Groo he will move with you with the following effects:

You may not collect any money from any properties you own instead you must pay to the bank any amount you would have collected due to Groo Damage.

If a fray takes place while Groo is traveling with you, lose a turn and all your cash on hand.

These effects continue until Groo is paid off and moves away.

A Fray:

If an attempt to send Groo to Jail takes place due to either a card draw, doubles or the landing on the Go to Jail space a Fray takes place with the following effects:

Any and all buildings on the property Groo is on are destroyed.
If there are no buildings on the property treat it as if Groo just landed there.
Roll one dice, all players within the number of spaces of the dice roll lose one turn due to residual Groo damage.

The victory conditions are the same last surviving player wins, there is a chance that all remaining players will go bankrupt at once, in that case Groo wins.
