Prime Minister James Hacker: When Cholera killed 30,000 in 1833 we got the Public Health act. When Smog killed 2,500 people in 1952 we got the Clean Air Act., When a commercial drug kills half a dozen people we get it withdrawn from sale. Smoking kills 100,000 people a year and what do we get?

Sir Humphry Appleby: Four Billion Pounds a year, 25,000 jobs in the tobacco industry, a flourishing cigarette export business helping our balance of trade, 250,000 jobs related to tobacco, Newsagents, packaging, transport…

Prediction: If You Think the Cigarette Lawsuits & Settlements Were Something Wait Till the Transgender Suits Against Children’s Hospitals Start Coming

Instapundit Today:

Gov. Bill Lee Calls For Investigation Of Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Transgender Clinic Following Matt Walsh Revelation.

Some details from the Daily wire story:

Lee’s comments follow a detailed thread from Daily Wire host and author Matt Walsh on the medical center. In one of the video’s shared by Walsh, VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health’s Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor admitted, “These surgeries are labor intensive, they require  a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money,” she emphasized. “They make money for the hospital.”

And some of the tweets

All I can think of is the Godfather where Don Corleone gives his objections to his own family entering the drug trade:

Don Corleone: I said that I would see you because I had heard that you were a serious man, to be treated with respect. But I must say no to you and let me give you my reasons. It’s true I have a lot of friends in politics, but they wouldn’t be so friendly if they knew my business was drugs instead of gambling which they consider a harmless vice. But drugs, that’s a dirty business.

Sollozzo: No, Don Corleone…

Don Corleone: It makes no difference, it don’t make any difference to me what a man does for a living, you understand. But your business is a little dangerous.

The Godfather 1972

It was because of this decision not to play along that Don Corleone was shot and that the compromise than ended the ensuing gang war was imposed that allowed the drug trade:

Emilio Barzini: A refusal is not the act of a friend. If Don Corleone had all the judges, and the politicians in New York, then he must share them, or let us others use them. He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly he can present a bill for such services; after all… we are not Communists.

In Vanderbilt’s remake of the Godfather Dr. Ellen Clayton plays the role of Barzini

I suspect this production is and has been played out at many pediatric medical centers all across the country with an army of Sollozzos ready to come down on any who objected to this new revenue stream supported by an army of Barzinis ready to insist that for the good of all those who will profit financially from the Transgender push those medical professional who took their vow to “Do no harm” seriously compromise their souls.

Update (Via Hotair) speaking of Fast:

If you’re old enough you might remember the cigarette lawsuits which ended in a giant settlement that allowed the companies to keep functioning while the states pocketed a bunch of money while claiming the high moral ground.

Well right now spaying kids has become all the rage and a profit center for drug companies, Children’s Hospitals and various medical professionals.

However there is a clue that while people are busy taking the money they know what it actually is. It seems every single time Libs of Tictok highlights the care these hospitals are so proud of :

Within a day or two all that care they are so proud of disappear from the web:

This is a pattern that has been repeated more than once

As reality doesn’t care how woke people feel the time will come when all those five year olds, and six year old and even 14 year olds will be 30 years olds with their lives ruined and long before that the next batch of potential customers will start figuring out that this has been a bad idea and the bottom will drop out of the business, and when the left sees there is no profit in it and that they are a drag rather than a benefit they will as they are wont to do drop them like a hot potato and particularly on the state level rush to not only jump on the bandwagon of the right moves against them but jump to the front of the line to condemn all the harm they did to so many.

When that day comes the medical community along with the insurance industry will have a crisis and when that happens that will be when the settlement talks begin to stop the bleeding that will come from it.

I think I will live long enough to see it, and when it does this old man won’t be smiling because I know that while there will be lawyers making a buck and perhaps even states dishing out settlement money to those who haven’t killed themselves but will spend their life mutilated I also understand that the settlement that comes will insure that those who destroyed those lives for fun and profit all the time promising with a smile a happy life will just walk.

At least in this life.

While Don Surber is right to hit General Miley both on his destruction of the morale, discouraging recruitment and getting Afghanistan wrong I have to give him a little bit of a mulligan in terms of Kiev.

To my knowledge while very few people were cheering for Russia to conquer Ukraine to my knowledge very few outside observers anticipated a successful defense of Kiev. In fact I think the only public figure that had any confidence in Ukraine resisting Russia was Zelenskyy.

It is of course still early and the Russian Bear might return in force or even bearing battlefield nukes but right now it looks like Ukraine will still exist as a nation and the person who deserves the credit for it is Zelenskyy who shocked everyone by deciding to stay and fight rather than take the money and run.

Corruption and patriotism are apparently not mutually exclusive.


Between Catholic Cardinals and Bishops in Germany saying we need to rethink the catechism on Sodomy in Germany and Pope Francis excluding the crucifix from an event in Malta in Lent so as to not offend Muslim migrants who might attend it’s a very interesting time to be a Catholic of faith.

A great way to get though this is to remember that while people and cultures may change neither God, nor the message of Christ nor truth has and Truth is always pastoral and that this isn’t the first time we’re run into this kind of thing (remember when there were multiple Popes all claiming the chair of St. Peter?)

The Best way to get though it however is to keep the basics

  1. Go to mass
  2. Pray (particularly the Rosary)
  3. Have faith in the Holy Spirit and Christ words that the gates of Hell will not prevail against his church

And never forget love is being willing to say the truth to a person who might not want to hear it, but needs to hear it.


The most interesting thing about the pushback on the Florida law not allowing teachers to push sex on kids eight years old and younger and younger is the absolute apoplexy of teachers, particularly gay and transgender teachers at the thought of not be able to do so.

By any objective standard this should be the golden age for such people in the west. In three generations this stuff has gone from being illegal to being celebrated and affirmed to the point where if you don’t completely embrace the LGBTQ ETC ETC ETC agenda you risk your livelihood, your reputation and angry mobs harassing you.

So why are such folks, during the easiest time in the last 1000 years to be gay or lesbian or transgender in western civilization so insecure about their identifies and proclivities that they can’t function without pushing it on kids?

My own theory is that reality doesn’t care about such false cultural trappings. I think a creature that is made in the image of God can’t run from the internal, even instinctual feeling that something about them is wrong, so no amount of affirmation is enough to get them though the day.

That’s what happens when you take God out of society and replace it with an idol.

Having my own sins to deal and per the command of Christ I can’t judge such people but I do pity them.


The latest inflation numbers are out and are the worst that Americans under 40 have ever seen. and the worst since the days of Carter.

That Brings up an interesting thing about both the Biden and Trump administrations, I had very low expectations for both of them.

The degree of success he had both at home and domestically of those years was astounding. Repeatedly the good economic news was reported as “better than expected” by a press flummoxed by said success. The Trump years were the most prosperous years of my life since the early days of the George W. Bush Administration.

Trump not only exceeded my low expectation but did so beyond my wildest expectations.

As for Biden my expectations were even lower given the theft of the election. I expected a tough time.

We now have war in Europe, Inflation at Carter Admin levels, Oil and gas prices through the roof, Supreme Court Justices who don’t know what a woman is and don’t believe in natural rights and food shortages. FOOD SHORTAGES!

As I said I had very low expectation for the Biden administration but even these failures were beyond my wildest dreams.

If you told me in 1997 that twenty five years later I’d consider Bill Clinton would the most competent Democrat to hold the Whitehouse since Johnson and the Least Corrupt since Carter I wouldn’t have believed you.


Finally apparently we’re reached the point in Seattle where if you’re the victim of a sexual assault as far as the city is concerned you’re on your own:

So here we are in 2022 and as predicted the public safety situation has become untenable. The city lacks enough officers to investigate sexual assault cases. Maybe no one predicted this specific outcome but many warnings were given multiple times over the past 20 months that public safety was going to suffer because of the lack of staffing. That’s what happened. The predictions were correct. The defund the police supporters on the city council put the city in this position. They should be the ones answering for this mess.

This would be bad news for the woman of Seattle but as neither the mayor’s office nor the police are staffed by biologists apparently the city won’t come to that conclusion.

I find myself completely unable to muster any outrage over it as the people, like many others in blue cities are getting exactly the government they deserve.

It really amazes me that the same people in the media who take no offense with American Olympic Athletes running down our country that they supposedly represent taking great offense at me choosing not to support them for that reason.


The people who are rushing to say the failure of the “transgender woman” weightlifter to place proves there is no advantage for men claiming to be ladies might have a better argument if the weightlifter in question was not in his mid 40’s.

The fact that a mid forty’s guy was able to beat out any women from his country to represent it in the Olympics speaks volumes concerning this reality.


If you really want to understand how crazy this all is go to a venue that requires masks and tell them you are in fact masked and define yourself as masked while at the same time insisting that you in fact the opposite sex of what you are.

Watching them slobber to call you by the sex you desire while insisting that the evidence of their own eyes is enough to determine if you’re wearing a mask will speak volumes.


I’m really torn on the Simone Biles business, particularly after she came back to compete in a singles event. A player who knows they are a drag on the team should not jeopardize their position on the other had at this level does a person owe it to their team to go forward if at all possible.

Can you imagine how the person who was the last cut from the squad must have felt knowing that they were bumped for someone who backed out of the competition?

It’s unfortunate that Biles will likely be remembered more for this moment then her previous successes, I wonder if she considered that before making the call?


Finally we once again had an Arab athlete in judo pull out because they drew an Israeli opponent in the competition.

This is constantly spun as being done in support of the Palestinians but in my eyes he is simply terrified at being beaten by a Jew on an international stage.

Given the record of Arab nation in warfare against Israel this fear is a lot less irrational than it sounds.


Finally China seems to be hypersensitive as to how their athletes are being portrayed, particularly in losses to Japan.

As I’ve written before I believe China as a nation still hasn’t gotten over what Japan did to them in WW 2 and I suspect defeat at their hands, really rubs them the wrong way.

My gut tells me that China is doing what it’s doing these days because they know the demographic clock is against them and figure their time to flex their international muscle is now.
