Looking at that “thermometer” – it’s not climbing very fast, is this going to have to be another three-donation year for some of us?
No; do not do that. It will be up to those who decide to join in and keep the fun for another year! We’re just slightly behind last year at this time. Figure with no PayPal, a tough year, and banks that are picky with everyone now, not bad. 🙂
Doubling down otoh, is welcome and likely critical to get where our host needs to be to keep on keepin’ on…join me on Sat 7/30 and let’s git ‘er done!
Nice scenery but where’s the boat?
Boat? What boat?
The little man in the boat….
I went to yale once. they have a really good natural history museum. other than that, Cthulhu could stomp it flat and I wouldn’t shed a tear.
I feel the same about Washington District of Criminals,
The Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, a few other places of historical artifacts.
Other then that, I wish the Brits would invade again (War of 1812) and nuke/burn the entire city to the ground, then plow and salt the ground (Punic Wars?).
Ever notice that the most “successful” crooks have Ivy League degrees? You can steal a lot more with $2000 suit, a lawyer and a pen than a ski mask and a gun.
“A man who has never gone to school may steal a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
I’ve been noticing lately that news reports of long-term embezzlement of funds by employees in higher education and government have become almost exclusively due to women these days. FWIW, take notice next time you read of one.
Mostly the Yale graduates i’ve Known would need extensive post-graduate work to qualify as a lawn dart.
The location and exquisite scenery of today’s strip brings to mind the old Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” ads and “here’s to you Mr. Nudist Colony Activities Director,” as well as “Lawn darts? Completely out of the question!”
In the history of arts and sciences, it is overwhelmingly those who have NOT received Ivy League so-called “educations” who’ve made the greatest advances and discoveries.
Think harder, Mari.
Very scenic, indeed.
I’ll get off my nalgas and send this year’s contribution this weekend. Lots of distractions these days, and not the lovely ones featured here.
Yale? These young ladies would thrive at Hillsdale.
Or merely Hills and Dales 😉
Certainly worth hitting the dusty trails to catch a glimpse. 🙂
Chris, I feel compelled to send addition funds to show my appreciation for the current story line and, especially, the art!
Hey! You got a Yalie here… Well, it was full-time but only ONE subject. All day, every day. Mandarin.
So, dzemma yang, tsau-muchin ren?
Um, are we witness here to early intimations of a next-generation Jan/Skye pair-up of contrasting political/world views? Gulp. Say it isn’t so. We’ll see…In the meantime, all I can say is “game, set, match…”
Stanley and Chris,
Please do not let Mari go progressive on us. She is far too intelligent for that.
Besides, it would break Zed’s (and our) hearts.
Progressivism is in large part a social disease, with a foundational premise that human nature can be changed. It is particularly common among people of the female persuasion who actually need that tendency to educate the very young. And as we know there are many mothers who will not allow their children to grow up.
Sadly, there are those among us who never advance beyond the stage of childhood that allows them to become self-fulfilling adults, who wish to remain dependent, and simply cannot imagine others wanting anything else.
We call them Socialists.
The ones who lead them, knowing better, should rightly be labeled Criminals.
Sigh, I remember when the girls were just wee babes in arms, how time flies….
The wit is as sharp as the other “pointy things”.
And just who do you think fills all of those gender and diversity positions now spread across the land by government demands. Every corporation, foundation, school, government, and everything must have been mandated several people either in their own organization or outside hires to explain and implement the new mandates of control devised by the reptiles who have alter society intentionally over these many decades.
Green means faux green.
Any gains are lost by the ecological and genetic damage from the pollution the green products have required. That it is an arsenic dump in Chile from a Swedish corporation buying a “safe” dump for their pollution that really poisons a town and that town’s children and citizens are poisoned. Then the case is lost by applying Chilean law, then lost by applying Swedish law for yet another reason on appeal, and the corporation only pays legal fees.
The huge lake in china that is toxic remains of producing the electricity generators for the wind turbines. The toxic lakes are huge.
The existing profitable and efficient power generating infrastructure that is shut down, thus increasing our dependence on a sworn enemy for our power. The shutting down of jobs that disperse wealth to our people for good hard work. Closing the XL pipeline added massive expenses to the society while adding nothing. The pipeline could have possibly avoided the watershed, but what would the next complaint have been? Many high paying union jobs were eliminated by Mr regular guy union bag man Joe.
Could our infrastructure handle all of the electrical demand planned if EVs become as numerous as laws demand they become. we are not Europe that has its populations in a small area (Into which the ptb demand double the number of economically non viable people be stuffed into. Camp of the Saints on pdf online, has been in progress by design).
Green is the color of the bile we will and have been expelling at the disgusting damage done in the name of good. But it is control (and elimination of the people) that the know it alls want.
The evil ones know how to create the crisis they want to get the results that they want. The Arab Spring was a manipulation that resulted in damage across North Africa and the Middle East that brought massive Muslim outflow into a stable Europe that had been taught to limit its birth rates for the benefit of the world. Now they have the replacement mostly incompatible people now in Europe, an area that is smaller in size by magnitudes, than where the replacement people came from.
We are now suffering the attack. The food supply was disrupted before such as the Arab Spring, and food prices rose. The lass of money purchasing power by inflation and fewer jobs causes turmoil. We have less economic production in the USA now. We have less ability to adapt. We have an unconstitutionally elected Joe. We must enjoy our lives, such as at a swimming hole, and maintain opposition when we believe it is appropriate. Never listen to the Epps type feds that love to destroy people. Count on them to be there to turn things bad.
Green is BILE. It is the disease of the system manifesting.
Sustainable is good when possible.
survival is better until such time as other options don’t produce poison to the environment and society (people).
We are better than that. They use any means necessary to tear down and Build Back their new and better world. In reality all that is ever produced is a build back bile in a build back biden type scenario.
In the meantime, build back better swimming holes, and enjoy life as prepared as you can be. we are responsible, unlike our current government and the insurrection the cult produced. Nothing is real easy. But enjoying yourself is a great thing to do. Especially with others. There are so many beautiful things and people in this world. Supporting them how you can is a beautiful thing also.
“Every corporation, foundation, school, government…”
You forgot the “military”.
Now that the military is ‘woke’ citizens don’t need to know what they do:
No clue what if anything she studied, ‘Oligarch Wannabe’ maybe?
This actually made my stomach turn.
There is no reason for anyone looking for an actual education to go to Yale. Or Harvard, or any of the rest of the Ivy League. The value in those institutions is only for the children of the elites who have the system under their control. For those kids, a Yale or Harvard degree is entry to the lower level of the elite ranks, and a start on the ladder. For others? You’re not going to be accepted into the ranks of those who came before.
And since I forgot, yes, the scenery is superb. Not that a dirty old man like me should be noticing such.
As my grandfather (then 81) once told me “I still look, but I don’t always remember why!”
At 75, I’m beginning to understand.
