UPDATE 4/12/24: This WEEDS IN THE AMERICAN GARDEN OF FREEDOM post proves a very handy drop-off spot when determining where to put those special Michelle-Antoinette folk who have not really earned a regular fulltime post and presence of their own. Such a special almost-human confection is the incomparable Sheila Jackson Lee, here revived and celebrated once again (thanks to recent astronomical musings on The Sun and The Moon) for living up to that unmatchable assessment of her intellectual assets: “dumber than a bunch of rocks caught in the hubcaps of a slow bus going the wrong way on a one- way street in the middle of a flood.”

Her authoritative grasp of astronomy has not been limited to just the sun and the moon. 

UPDATE 4/6/24; Joe Rogan admiringly terms “The View” a “rabies-infested henhouse.”



UPDATE 12/18/23: Paul Krugman continues to demonstrate how a Nobel Prize, a secure pulpit at the NY Times and general acclaim by Leftists as an economics genius amount to less than nothing when the man opens his mouth and routinely spouts meaningless nonsense and outright fables. 

UPDATE 11/24/23: Show biz MENSA member and comedy legend Kathy Griffin meows like a cat and moos like a cow to deal with her Trump-induced PTSD. Whatever. Imagine when he gets to be POTUS again.

UPDATE 10/29/23: Bill Maher, previously referred to in these pages as an “ugly, almost-human life form” (which accurately describes him most of the time), seriously soiled himself this week, equating new Speaker (and devout Christian) Mike Johnson with the Maine psycho-killer. Like the occasionally correct smashed timepiece he is, here is Maher a few years back in a sane moment, contradicting his own present insanity, calling out a fanatic Lib for making precisely the same equivalency between Christianity and Islamic terrorists.


UPDATE 6/15/23: A longtime toiler in the hallowed halls of Race Grievance, Inc, Keith Ellison remains the quintessential establishment  termite and fraud acquiring and exercising legal power to undermine the police and the laws they (and he) are sworn to uphold. 

UPDATE 6/1/23: Hanoi Jane withered and ugly, desperate to be Greta, has morphed into the vengeful, bitter harridan that always lurked under that stylish Hollywood brat veneer.

Now just a silly, old thing.

UPDATE 4/7/23: Philadelphia Mayor Kenney continues to be just one more typical big city political machine drone highly selective in what gets his attention…and funding.

UPDATE 2/28/23: One (a Chinese Cultural Revolution survivor) is telling the truth as she actually lived and witnessed it with her own eyes. The other (a multimillionaire race hustler) is a conniving “intellectual” crafting a fake reality to take advantage of the burgeoning opportunities for celebrity, power and money in the race industry.

UPDATE 2/27/23: Angela Davis, high-earning ($20-50K a pop) star of  the Black Marxist lecture circuit, has suffered the shock of her profiteering race-baiting career to learn she had a White ancestor on the Mayflower. The big question has arisen: will she be paying herself reparations and how much from all those million$ accrued toiling busily in the plush vineyards of Marxism, Inc?


UPDATE 2/14/23: The obvious incapacity of both Biden and Fetterman did not matter to millions of vacuum-brain voters and has certainly never mattered to their wives who had the chance to take their ailing husbands out of the spotlight. Instead, fully cognizant of their spouses’ cognitive infirmities, both opted for what they were sure would be the reflected glory and power of having partners in prominent positions. To eyes that see clearly, the only reflected image of both is heartless ambition and astounding irresponsibility. 

UPDATE 1/25/23: The greatest threat to America comes from within, from those Americans who hate freedom and think nothing of transforming us into a monolithic, totalitarian slave state. Is this not treason, a betrayal of all those- present, past and future-grateful or longing to live as free individuals? Sadly, the word traitor now accurately applies to millions of malcontents, ordinary folk wholly dedicated to a totalitarian future, not just Benedict Arnold or that stray spook in government selling military secrets for money and/or glory. 


UPDATE 12/27/22: Charlatan “scientist” Neil DeGrasse Tyson already has his own MA Hall of Shame post and, now with his child-hating Tweets ruining Christmas for any youngsters unfortunate enough to read him, has attained Ugly Grinch Weed Status in America’s Garden of Freedom. He joins all those who make a self-aggrandizing point of hating Christmas and Santa Claus.

UPDATE 11/12/22: Although his End Of The World prediction hasn’t quite panned out, it is instructive to hear everything the mercurial Bill Maher fears about conservative Republicans.  God willing we soon see the day when things are really as “bad” (GREAT actually) as he fears.

UPDATED 8/19/22:


ORIGINAL POST 12/20/15: With America, mankind has proven it can create an almost perfect society, a workable, vital version of Eden. Live and Let Live. The complications always arise with the inevitable weeds in this and every other Garden.

Harsh weeds choking out healthy, desirable vegetation.
Harsh weeds choking out healthy, desirable vegetation.

In our case, the weeds are those Eden inhabitants who for a complicated number of psychological reasons feel impelled to seek and exert absolute, corrupt power over others. And there are those who seek power (or at least security) vicariously through their chosen figureheads. How else do you explain greedy mediocrities like Hillary or Barack and the deluded, privileged millions who insist on turning their (and everyone else’s) lives over to them? The swallowing whole of fictions like “Climate Change” as an excuse for One World government?

The alternative remains the principle of the individual soul and his responsibility to take on the world however it’s handed to him and make the most of it without interfering in or obstructing other lives. Every law, every decent political theory should exist solely to protect the individual’s desire to thrive and bloom. Destructive mass movements are all rooted in the destruction of that individualism, usually starting with fostering dependency on the State. Crisis! Big Brother will save you! Think Obamacare, Climate Change legislation.

 There’s a good reason why “Atlas Shrugged” remains the second most popular book of our times behind only the Bible.
