Wouldn't want to miss the cartoons. Never a dull moment.





It happens that my county was on the eclipse line.  My wife and I sat out by the meadow, at our little table under a tree. We didn't look at the sky, because I don't trust those glasses that were supposed to make it "ok."   But it was very strange.  It did get dark, and on the cement parking pad next to where we were sitting , we saw shimmering lines, like the heat waves you see over your vehicles engine compartment on a hot day.  We also saw half moon shapes all over the vehicles, on the white cement, and elsewhere. I don't know what caused either of these phenomenon.

We have Moslems here now.  I am very sorry we do.  I don't want them here.  Some of them are probably nice people, but I still don't want them here.  I've lived in their environment, and I never wanted to see it again. It's been hard enough being inundated with Hispanics for twenty years, but if the same thing happens with "Islam", this place will be a wasteland.

I go to subway to get a sandwich, and there the burka crowd is. Bad memories.  I go to Walmart, and there are three 20 something "refugees" or whatever the hell they are.  They have a big buggy of stuff, and once the clerk rings it up, they say they want it separated into individual piles, and they each want to pay for their own items. Two of them speak no English, and one of them does all the talking with a French accent. They giggle and act the fool.  Then the arch-typical Moslem , short hair, short beard, picks up a broom out of the buggy, pretends it's a rifle, points it at all the rest of us in the check out line, and goes "boom, boom, boom!"  giggles hysterically.  It made me so angry I had to sit out in the car for awhile.

Where the hell are these individuals coming from? Why are they coming here? I don't know.

I've been reading. A lot.  When you want to blot out the times you live in, you look to the glories of the past.  I'm reading a book about the U.S. Navy at Guadalcanal right now, and another about the Peloponnesian War.  I go to the library frequently.  It's cool, it's quiet. I have a  truce with the lady that runs it. We've had run in's before, but these days I just get my books, and leave.



I miss reading the blogs I used to read.  I have found that if you don't write your own blog, you tend to not go on the internet and look at other blogs. I need to get back in the swing of things.  I had decided to just delete it. But I couldn't back it up, the program wouldn't work for me, and the only way I could get it off the internet was to go to the setting and choose "authors only" for access. If you do that, it hits people who try to see the blog and says "you do not have access to this blog." I didn't want anyone thinking that I dropped them off some kind of list.

Putting the verification thing on the blog has gotten rid of the massive amount of spam I was getting every day, and that's good.

I am not sure where I'm going with the blog in the end, or what I want to change. But I'm working on it.


Sulking in his tent didn't work out for Achilles, either.


I don't share this complete idiot's point of view. But his side is winning.

  1. Glad to see you are back, missed you. I was hoping nothing was wrong with life on your end. I haven't been posting either. Busy with work, looking after ailing dad, mending broken cars and other broken things and life in general. Hope you don't shut down your blog. It is nice to see an update once in a while. I'll try to get one up soon.

    1. Nothing is really wrong, except a severe case of frustration with how things are going overall, and specifically, with a sudden influx of middle eastern gutter snipes into my own county. I'm not the only one here who is wondering what the hell is going on. The Governors office in Atlanta denies the state has anything to do with it. But they didn't all just materialize. Seeing these cretins here is particularly galling to me.

      You've got a lot going on. I figure once summer is over and Fall sets in, we can all settle down a bit and have a little more time. My wife and I have been getting out a great deal, but we are about surfeited with short trips for now. We don't plan on going anywhere until next Wednesday, which gives us five days of resting up here at the house.

    2. I know what you said about the imports. It's the same here. The other day I was at Wallyworld and every single cashier was a mahometan. All the girls wearing head cover of some sort and all the guys were Muhamed, Mustafa and Ali. They had them in at least two flavors, the middle-eastern variety and the east African/Sudanese/Etheopian. Out of fifteen cashiers not a single one was anything else. Ten years ago you would have never seen one here, now you can't go anywhere without coming across a pile of them. Sudanese have taken over all the taxi cab services. Certainly seems like an invasion from where I stand. Assimilation is clearly contrary to their culture.

    3. I honestly never thought we'd have them showing up here. There is NO WAY to make a living here. All our young people have to leave. So how are these "refugees" managing to maintain themselves here? And why did they just suddenly "appear" out of nowhere? We've already been screwed over once by the State letting in thousands of Mexicans to work in the chicken plants back in the late 80's when there was a strike. That changed the whole complexion of life here in the mountains, and for the worse. Now we have to have these Islamist cockroaches dumped on us? God knows what that will do to the remnants of our way of life up here. It makes me sick.

    4. They can do it because as "refugees" they get subsidized housing, food, transportation and healthcare. So the 10 bucks an hour they make at Wallyworld is all pocket money for them. They have never had it so god. Back in Shitholistan they could only dream of this. But they have no desire to assimilate and it is clear when you read the weekly police blotter in the local rag. 85% of the cases cited are Ali, Mustafa, and Achmed... same clowns I saw at the cash register at Wallyworld.

    5. My kids work themselves ragged to make a living, and the federal government takes their money, imports these walking diseases, and gives them my kids money.

      I've been hearing ugly rumors that new apartment complex way outside town is in reality a "low income subsidized housing project". If that's true, we're done here. I won't even be safe up on the mountain top, because Atlanta will have dumped all it's trash, foreign and domestic, up here in the mountains.

    1. Hey, Scooney. Not sure exactly what, if anything, I want to do differently but I'm puzzling it out. Are you still doing your blog? When I click on your name on the comment, instead of taking me to your blog it just goes to your profile.

  3. I enjoy your cartoons, and am glad you are back...however you choose to come back. Thank you for the reading recommendations, I'm always looking for a new good book.

    1. Suz, I like those Branco cartoons myself. Hard to believe the guy is a college professor. Seems like the pin heads in the ivory towers would have fired him by now.

      I used to buy all my books, then I started buying the digital books, because they didn't take up space. Now I get them from the library. I seem to be able to get whatever I need from the library via the Georgia interlibrary loan system, so it works out well.

  4. As I see more muslims around, I'm beginning to like the Mexicans.

    1. Every new ethnic group that gets dumped on us, degrades our quality of life here. Before the Mexicans, nobody locked their doors. After the Mexicans began flooding in, housebreaking and burglary became routine. I hear it on the scanner almost every afternoon. Some woman will come home from work, her house has been broken into, and she wants the Sheriff's Deputy to come out and be sure the house breakers are gone. The only thing that changes is the location. The impact of Hispanics on our social services, health care, and educational systems here has been dramatic and negative. But Moslems? The less you have in common with a new ethnic group, the more friction. These aren't American converts I'm seeing here now. It's old granny in her black burka, with her toothless face glaring out of the little open space on the head. It's these giggling, unpredictable, obnoxious young men. There's going to be some real trouble here when the ragheads start hitting on the local women. This is not Sweden.

  5. Harry, it's good to see you back on here again. I do hope you decide and stay with your blog. Hope you had some relaxation and peace too.

    We were also in the path of the eclipse. 300,000 poured into our rural area. It was a mess after the fact. I had 21 family members here for it, and it was nice to see them for a few days,but I am now assessing all the damage to my place.

    Good job keeping your cool with that moslem. That ticks me off just hearing about it. I think I would have gone straight back to the meat department for some bacon. Imagine what I would have done with it. That SOB. --Troy

    1. Troy, the whole of North Georgia was completely overrun. People were just parking their vehicles alongside the road and setting up tents. There is a big resort here, and a group from Australia had rented the entire facility. Our newspaper has been harping for weeks, saying the population would double overnight here for two days. They said to be sure you had a full gas tank and didn't need to go into town for groceries. That was good advice. I listened to the scanners most of that day and it was pure, unadulterated chaos. Idiots fist fighting over "you took my spot" and asinine behavior along those lines.

      One of the most unpleasant things for me is seeing these people here and knowing what they are really like. As far as I can tell, they haven't changed one iota since 1982/1984. Still arrogant, pushy, rude, and still don't take a bath more than once a month if they can avoid it.

  6. Stand your ground laws in Ga? SOB should have been going crosseyed trying to look down the barrel of a 45. Why are they continuing to bring them here?
    Glad to see you checking in, hope you don't pull the plug. I enjoy this place.

    1. J, one of our problems is that people bend over backwards here to avoid giving offense. So someone like this horses ass can pull a stunt like that and just walk out the door laughing. He didn't represent a threat so there wasn't much anyone could do about his sense of humor. At that time of day, the vast majority of people in Walmart were older people. If some of the younger local men had been in there, it's possible the three stooges would have gotten their asses kicked out in the parking lot, but the octogenarian crowd isn't very active.

      I'm not going to pull the blog, just don't know what I'm going to do with it in the long term..

  7. Welcome back, Harry!

    I've got Hornfischer's book "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" about the Battle Off Samar. One of my Iowa shipmates was on the USS Hoel, and he signed my book last year.

    1. I've read that book. It's about the Taffy Jeep Carriers and their escorts during the Marianas's Turkey Shoot, isn't it? Have I got the right one in mind.

      Delete
    2. You're close, but have the wrong battle. The Battle Off Samar is also called the Battle Of Leyte Gulf. It was the last major Naval action of WWII.

      The Mariana's Turkey Shoot was at the end of June, and the Battle Off Samar was at the end of October. Some people called it "The Battle of Bull's Run" because Halsey took off to the North with all the big ships to go after the Japanese carriers, leaving Leyte Gulf pretty much undefended.

      It's the battle where the "padding" on the radio message was left on the message when Halsey got it, and the last words "The World Wonders", which were supposed to have been removed before he read it, sent Halsey into a crying fit....

      Delete
    3. I remember that. I thought that particular episode was part and parcel of the Mariana's Turkey shoot. I remember the destroyers ran in against the Japanese battle line, which included battleships. There's a famous paint of it somewhere or other, with the great spouts of colored water coming up from the Japanese shells. Didn't realize the two incidents were separated in time.

    4. "Small Boys Attack!" was th4e order Admiral Sprague gave, even though Commander Evans on the USS Johnston had taken it on himself to break away from their little fleet, and head right at the huge Japanese ships on his own.

      We sit back and marvel at the courage and bravery these men showed that day. And yet my friend who was there just says "We were just doing our jobs".

      "Just doing our jobs"....today's youngsters could learn a thing or two from that statement.

  8. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    great to see you leave a post.

    Next time you see some muslim midget in Walmart acting stupid.
    Tell them this joke.

    There was a cowboy, muslim and indian on a plane. The indian looked out the window at the vast open land and said. Once we were many. Now we are few.
    The muslim looked out the window at the open land and said. Once we were few. Now we are many.

    the cowboy sitting in the airline seat seemed unimpressed and the cowboy tilted up hat and said. 'We ain't started playing 'Cowboys and Muslims yet'

    1. Looks like things may be a little lively down your way weather wise. I hope it doesn't do you any damage.

      There is a lot of truth to that joke. I'm waiting to see what happens here in a Bible Belt county when the Moslems start making demands and getting in everyone's face.

  9. Sadly, the eclipse didn't figure in our part of the world. And, the next time one will be visible here will be in 2050. I'll be long departed from this mortal coil by then...

    Looked amazing on Sky News though.

  10. You were missed here as well. You are certainly not alone in growing frustration, our country is changing and not for the good. Ignoring MSM has helped me quite a bit - I look at OAN for more balanced stories and it seems to have helped some.

    Right now, we are keeping a watch on the Gulf, Hurricane Harold is right next to us, but is tip-toeing past our upper right shoulder. We are lucky to escape the worst such as Corpus Christi and other adjacent locales. Prayers - positive thoughts - smoke should be sent their way, its going to be tough for a while for them.

    Hope things improve on your side - Thank you for not going completely dark, many blogs I read have chosen that course.

    1. MSM is one of my biggest frustrations. They are an obnoxious group of liars, and they seem to be able to say anything they want to. They're a big part of the overall problem, lionizing the gutter trash and denigrating good people.

      I know a lot of people are shutting down their blogs. I sure did think about it. Trying to write a good blog is hard, and it subjects you to a lot of aggravation because you can't just limit the access to it in such a manner that only your friends read it. So you have to put up with a daily drum beat of nastiness. It can wear you down.

      Hope the Hurricane doesn't do you any harm. I was crossing my fingers it would turn into a cat 5 and go right to New Orleans, where it would do the most good.

  11. You're back!! Yay!! So glad to see you post again. Thanks for the great cartoons. I was angered just by reading your story about the moslem guy with the broom. Of course, if you had done that, you would have been arrested and charged with terroristic threat or something else. Stay safe. Jana

    1. Jana, you have put your finger right on the problem. What can anyone do when some pig does something like that? Walmart has cameras in the building and the parking lot. There's no shortage of left wing lawyers and rabble rousers just praying someone will beat some raghead senseless, or shoot one. So they can act like fools and everybody, myself included, just has to watch their act.

      My one real hope is that they will find the environment here so uncongenial they'll leave. Nobody is standing around holding "welcome refugee" signs here. I called the Governor's office and they said they are not moving "refugees" here, and have no plans to. But if that's so, why did they show up suddenly, and how are they living here? There's no work here for the locals, let alone arrogant, obnoxious, pushy Moslems. There aren't many of them yet, and at first I thought maybe they were just passing through, but I know now they are not leaving. Not yet, anyway.

      I missed my pals, and most people won't write emails so I was losing touch with a lot of people. I didn't want that to happen.

  13. Harry - you know that you just can't go away - yer Harry Flashman fer the love of gawd! we need you! a funny story that you will love - me and jam went into town on tuesday - on the drive back he said " i saw two aboriginal people" - (and that was at the store that we get the cheapest gas at - it's on the reservation and for the most part the Mi'kmaq people just blend in and cause no trouble - except for a bit of drinking) - then he said "and i saw two black people" - both of whom were working in the pharmacy at our walmart where we buy our catfood. it's the first time he's ever said anything like that. and me and my friend W call him a libtard regularly - bahahaha! but he's really started noticing the difference between living in the city and living with a bunch of different races, when there are more of them than you, and living here. he's noticing it, Harry!

    sending you much love! hoping you and M will come for a visit.

    1. Kymber, J is having the same experiences a lot of decent people who just want to live their lives and be left alone are having. Things here are changing with horrific speed, and all for the worse. There just doesn't seem to be any way for the people who want to obey the law and live quiet lives to have any influence , but the trash that wants to be violent and force their will on everybody seems to have been given free rein to do just that. It's making us all more conscious of what's going on around us.

      I'd like to come up there and see you two some day. It's a long , long way from here though, and right now just driving out a day from here, staying overnight, and coming back is proving more tiring than I thought it would. Be who knows. Nobody can tell the future.

    1. I'm not so fussed about people running their mouths. I don't care a damn what Chucky , or Maxine, or Nancy or any of their minions say. But I care a lot about having a bunch of Islamists showing up in my town, and I care a lot about gutter trash tearing down monuments associated with a heritage I am very proud of. I'm also infuriated that the garbage from the gutters seems to be able to beat up who they want, destroy what they want and there is no penalty. But people like me, who won't act that barbarians, are limited to writing letters that some underling at some politicians office throws in the trash unopened. What I would really like to do would wind me up in prison.
