“Oh Bother”, said Pooh, as he chambered another round.

Time for some house keeping here at the JohnJacobH Blog! All the Examiner Columnists are gone and no archive remains of their work! So all the links will be erased with just commemorative screen
shots of The-Way-Things-Used-To-Be! In their place I will post new links as time and schedule allow.

Let me take this opportunity to plug the Glen Beck Radio Serials. Everyone should hear and share these Paul Harveyesque segments about all topics past and present related to the foundation of a Constitutional Representative Republic. Play them in the background while you work!

North Carolina HB2

HB2

Raleigh Constituent files his latest report from North Carolina:

Dear John Jacob,

The only two things I really know about North Carolina House Bill Number 2.

Thing #1: Republican Good Ole Boys in their Smoke Filled Back Rooms believe HB2 to
be
the greatest Legislation since the Magna Carta.

Thing #2: Democrat Good Ole Bolsheviks in their Tofu Filled Back Rooms believe HB2 to
be the worst legal edict since street urchins were executed for treasonous theft of bakery
bread in Dickensian England.

Really. That is all I know.

How this will alter the outcome of November elections is a mystery to me and equally
mysterious (to me) is why Republicans would set land speed records with a special session
to fight this particular battle when SO many other subjects need attention and remedy.

Shut down the Department of Education? Repeal the State Income Tax? Make light bulbs
legal again in North Carolina? How did BATHROOMS move to the top of the list?

Naturally Communist Chatterratti dominate the airwaves and broadsheets
and Internet Tubes with virtually no information beyond the breathless news how
bad, bad, bad this must be and the need for summary and immediate repeal.

To be fair today’s obsession with public restrooms maybe nothing more than
the logical legacy of yesteryear’s obsession with outhouses and privies here in
North Carolina.

In any case to me this seems to be another instance where the Children of Cain
have added complexity to an otherwise easily understood topic.

Just as Urban Yoots need sex education because they never lived in an agrarian
environment surrounded by birds and bees and hogs and horses and even chickens
and dogs in heat, Urban Adults need laws to help them understand why people
need to conduct their private business, uh, privately.

Me? I think I may just follow the example of that Astronaut who drove across
country in Depends to kidnap her lover. Who needs bathrooms?

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

My name is Monroe Mann and I used to have a Facebook Account. Used to? Yeah, I deleted it–and all of my 3000 ‘friends’ (who were not really my friends anyway)–irrevocably. I didn’t deactivate: I DELETED IT. It’s gone. Why? Well, I used to live in China. As much as I love China, and 虽然我觉得中国真是非常棒,I […]

Firewood Burn: Hypocrisy of the Social Elites

Canadian Common Sense

“In other words, even though wood is a renewable resource that could reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, it is being systematically outlawed by the authorities.”

This is the third consecutive winter that I’ve heated my home with firewood. We’ve got two stoves, the big one in the basement and the little one upstairs that takes the edge off when it’s -40°C. We don’t burn oil, propane or natural gas. Nor do we use any heaters powered by electricity.

Not only has this saved my family thousands of dollars for our winter heating bill, this oldest of old technological practice of burning firewood still works even if the lights go dark.  Living in a rural area, we are prone to frequent blackouts and rolling outages.

What we save in dollars does cost us in time; it is a long process to block, split, stack and bring…

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time for reflection and renewal in the company of family and friends. This year I thought my faithful readers (Thanks Mom!) and first time visitors might enjoy something old and something new, something sacred and something, well, a little more profane……in other words, a little something for everyone in this, the annual Christmas compilation post.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

First, the sacred: Chaplain to the RKBA Blogosphere Anthony Martin helps us all focus on the Holy-Day through music:
