I am happy to say that I know nothing about all of the subjects mentioned today. One of the wonderfull things about being old is that not much is important and it's all small stuff.

Idk if the comment about Nellie is serious, but the gun range is hella fun and it's comforting to know I can defend myself because my government cannot.

Very sad to hear that so many of the FP folks are spending their time watching TV.

GO OUTSIDE. Go for a walk. Go fishing or get some cider. Go for a drive. Do anything other than watch that god damned TV!

(I sound like my mother)

I am perplexed by the power that progressive white women have on our culture. Beckham is a British Soccer star and has a beautiful wife, kids, and success. In the past, we needed people to emulate and admire. Then they came along with their rage and joined with the wacky POC progressive crowd and the weak weasel men who loved them. We have modern culture—the battle over "toxic" masculinity and even we have to acknowledge this stupidity. From BLM, the trans movement, to the speech codes on campus, all of this runs back to paying attention to a fringe group of people who somehow have become the clergy of modern society. Is this due to the loss of power of faith and the void in these people's hearts, and their proximity to power gave them actual power? For me, I will never watch Beckham, but I will cheer on success and allow men to be men. I always love that the group at the Free Press are proud warriors against the Woke White Women (W3?) and give a place for the majority to push back. P.S. No Flip for me, but it's good to know what the youngsters are doing.

Fathers, teach your daughters how to shoot because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.

You go, Nellie!

Nothing like popping some caps and tearing shit up to unwind!

Too bad California has a ton of idiotic gun laws. It’ll take you months to get a carry permit, as compared to a week or two for most of the free states.

Well, Miss N, you know the old saw: God made men and women; Sam Colt made 'em equal. Just remember, though - if you ever have to pull it in anger, pull it blazing.

Nellie, armed and dangerous. What is our world coming to?

I had carpel tunnel surgery on Wednesday, so I've been at forced leisure. Watching The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett (which was far better than I anticipated). Also reading a rather long and boring fantasy novel that I can't quite bring myself to DNF.

Although I have ZERO interest in either article, it is still nice to get a break from the depressing news abroad.

Dear TFP: You were built for this moment. We thank you. Carry on.

I've been watching all versions of Pride and Prejudice, then moved on to North and South (the Elizabeth Gaskell novel) and now am immersed in the 1983 version of Mansfield Park. Are we detecting a pattern here??
