    Okay, as promised another 50 in the jar. That makes a buck and a half for me and while I know others have done more and so have I in the past, semi-retirement and Social Security put the brakes on a bit.

    Still, with just two percent to go I am confident we can all kick in a bit in the next twenty three hours so that the girls can have their Sunday Fun Day, and play and display without any financial concerns. Two percent…we can do this.

    Donate just one dollar to Marianne Williamson. She needs more unique donors to stay in the debates until the DNC “gets serious” and Bernies her. Plus it will screw up the algorithms to see you’ve donated to a national-level Democrat, you could get sorted into an Independent classification and the parties may actually care about your vote.

    “No”. One of the more powerful little words in the English language.
    A parent’s powerful weapon when judiciously applied.
    Unfortunately, it’s not used often enough.

    Anyone want to place a bet on whether the new diverse 007 isn’t just a loud & proud black womyn… but is also revealed to be either a lesbian OR transgendered? So stunning… so brave…

    Hollyweird ran out of new ideas decades ago. Most of what is supposed to pass as entertainment is old stuff recycled with an almost fresh coat of diverse paint… and the harder they try, the worse it looks.

    • Henry

      Her predecessors got their pick of Bond Girls… why shouldn’t she?

      I’m betting on a shock ending where we discover that she’s really a cross-dresser. That will make everybody so happy.

        She’ll have to fit in to a long tradition of charming amoral psychopaths (sociopaths are the loners, psychopaths blend in). So the opening will be her strategically picking up a woman, many silhouettes and sweaty noises, then afterwards she’ll get a phone call, turn around and kill the woman, and say “Sorry luv, orders.” Maybe they’ll soften it a la Hitchcock with a weapon dropping from the woman’s hand, she was ready to fight so she had it coming.

        Equality!

    And here I sit, watching my DVDs of Firefly and Babalon 5….

    • MikeS

      Me too brother, me too…

      “Shiny! Let’s be bad guys!”

  • Halley

    Bodyguard on Netflix was actually quite good.

  • Tom

    African-American? I thought she was British.

    I don’t really care if James Bond is a man or woman, so long as they go with the old idea of ‘James Bond’ as a code name.

    Anyway, I don’t think she can possibly be as bad as Roger Moore.

    • kadaka

      Skyfall established James Bond was his real name, tied to a real family estate, thus not a code name.

      So at some point it’ll be revealed her mother named her after the father she never knew until now.

  • Calvin

    If you’re not a subscriber currently, Netflix is having a special for ONLINE viewing; $4.99 a month. Tempting but I still have to say NO!

    • PaulS

      Good on you.
      Just say No!

  • Jerseygirl Angie

    She’s a Brit , not American at all ( African or otherwise) .

    A perfect example of the insidious nature of the PC culture – not all blacks are African-“American” .

    • Wood

      Additionally, very few are “African” American. Can I start demanding people refer to me as Swiss American? Or Prussian? No I just get lumped into white deplorables. Most black folks are just black Americans. Let’s just go with Americans and abandon all the special modifiers.

      • MasterDiver

        Old TR put it quite succinctly:
        “There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

        Zar Belk, Theodore!

      • John D. Egbert

        Check out the John Wayne monologue “The Hyphen.” He had it exactly correct.

  • PaulS

    Send them back to the flixhole that they came from!

  • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman

    Skye,
    If NetFlux is so cheap, why aren’t YOU paying for it?
    And if you’re so broke that you can’t even afford to pay for a month or NetFlux, then you need to get up off your pretty (but spreading) ass and do some work to earn that money.
    The bank is closed.

  • Shonkin

    Jerseygirl Angie is right. That’s the first thing that struck me — Bond is a Scot, dammit! Not (anyhyphen)-American!
    I moved to Montana 28 years ago. I remember my aunt back in California commenting on what she saw as a lack of diversity here compared to northern California. I asked her how many Salish, Kootenai, Blackfeet, Norwegians, Finns, Crees, Ojibways, Serbs, or Slovenians she knew in Modesto. Being honest, she conceded the point.

      Seax=knife

      Saxon approx = “people with knives”

      Two precision ground knives attached with a hinge point = scissors

    “You need de-programming.”

    She does, but not just of her teevee; she thinks the Squad are real superheros too.

    “Today’s media is so empowering.”

    Just a matter of time before they are depicted in capes and masks and shit.

    Now we will have REAL power. Still have to beg for nine bucks (and apparently everything else) from her sister of course, to keep the revolution going.

  • JAK

    Bond. Shaquilnama Bond. Shake thatmuthafu** dont be stirrin it Jak

    ???

    I read Friday, then I read today…

    Four days to go 6% to go.

    Two days to go 2% to go…

    What happened to ‘Three days to go? Am I missing a strip somewhere? 🙂

    007 as a woman? What’s her name? ‘Bond, Vega Bond’?

    • I always cut it early Monday morning, and then realized that’s 2 days, not 3.

      • JTC

        Which is to say, if you’re reading this…

  • Pamela

    Skye ~ You need to get some jeans, boots, hat and gloves on, then haul your sorry ass outside and fix fence in the south 40. That will help you to deprogram.

  • Gary S

    Woke, Jane Woke.
    Licensed to go broke.
    Well 60 years almost it was a good run and on the plus side George Lazenby finally gets to move up to the second worst slot in the Bond pantheon.

    • LOL!!!

  • kadaka

    Just a reminder of what they think of us.

    ‘Hope Dems run on this’! Ca. Dem Party regional director says rural white Americans are just ‘not grateful enough’; UPDATED

    This uproar started with this glorious David Atkins tweet:

    You know who is not grateful enough? Rural white Americans.

    They are heavily subsidized, drowning in federal largesse, blessed with political affirmative action & overrepresentation, have all their bills paid by cities and blue states, but they whine and yell constantly.

    • John

      And never mind the blood sweat and tears those “ingrates” shed to feed clothe and shelter your lazy ass while having to remove themselves from timely access to law enforcement and medical care.
      I can’t express the bittersweet frustration I feel when confronted with attitudes like Atkins’ clueless posturing from within the Blue Bubble.

        T. Jefferson on cities:

        “I think our governments will remain virtuous for many centuries as long as they are chiefly agricultural; and this will be as long as there shall be vacant lands in any part of America. When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
        “I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health and the liberties of man. True, they nourish some of the elegant arts; but the useful ones can thrive elsewhere; and less perfection in the others, with more health, virtue and freedom, would be my choice.”
        “The mobs of great cities add just so much to support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body,”

      The idiot doesn’t realize where most of their food, booze, electricity and fuel come from. It ain’t the transgender fairy.

    • NotYetInACamp

      They must follow the feudal belief about ungrateful slaves.
      The slaves must follow the rulers’ rules.
      That is what their collective demands. Who’s da rulah? Bernie believes that is according to his abilities and needs.

      And a Leftist sourced take on gratitude. It may have value to look at, or not.
      https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/how_cultural_differences_shape_your_gratitude

      Considering that most of the Democrat supporters and voters are no longer American in their thinking, this passage may explain some of that.
      – “Americans tend to be very individualistic, in contrast with collectivist cultures that put much more emphasis on the social group. This is an important distinction, because (despite their underrepresentation in gratitude research) 85 percent of the world’s population lives in cultures that researchers deem as more collectivist. ” –

      As Dhimini presidential candidate NYC Mayor DeBlasio has said: “We own you…” or something close.

    I go to the movies about once a year. Mostly I view DVDs from my collection, Christmas gifts and Redbox. Really used to love the whole going to the movies experience. One more pleasure the left has destroyed.

  • NotYetInACamp

    What’s a Netflix? Never seen it.

    Nor have I ever seen Washington D.C.
    Would that they both weren’t really there like they are.
    And she also must not be paying what is required to raise her possible spawn.
    Irresponsible. She must be a Democrat.
