Who was that woman on The Flintstones?

My favorite cartoon when I was a kid was The Flintstones (Jonny Quest was a close second).

Many celebrities appeared lending their voices to characters: Ann-Margret, Tony Curtis, Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York, Hoagy Carmichael, Jimmy O’Neill, James Darren. Others didn’t get behind the mic but were parodied: Gary Granite (Cary Grant),  Alvin Brickrock (Alfred Hitchcock), Perry Masonary (Perry Mason), Ed Sulleystone (Ed Sullivan), James Bondrock, The Cartrocks (the stone age version of the Cartrights, from Bonanza).

I’m happy to see reruns are back on MeTV. This week the “Fred El Terrifico” episode was aired. Fred, Wilma, Betty, and Barney take a trip to Rockapulco where jewel thieves pretend to befriend Fred in order to have him unknowingly smuggle jewels from Mexico back to the states.  Here’s a photo from the episode.

Our hero is on a plane to Rockapulco. Note the woman in the green dress.

Let’s get a better look. How about a close-up?

Much better.

Say…she looks kinda familiar, doesn’t she?

I see it. Don’t you?

Isn’t that…

Nah. She’s no international jewel thief.

 

 

As the impeachment hearings drag on, keep the following in mind

All reporters sometimes bend a rule, or go out on a limb or get something wrong. But the important thing is that they usually do this in aid of getting truth to the public. What has defined the media breakdown that started in 2016 was the press’ abandonment of standards in aid of peddling a narrative — rather than reality. This abandonment has had terrible consequences for the industry and for the country. A Monmouth University poll in early 2018 found that a whopping 77 percent of Americans believe traditional TV and newspaper outlets report “fake news.” And 42 percent of respondents said they believed outlets did this specifically to promote a political agenda. These kinds of numbers are alarming for civil society. The more Americans are turned off from traditional news, the more they turn to dubious sources and read and listen only to things with which they agree. For those worried about our increasingly polarized society, the media is feeding that divide.

Today’s highly interesting read (11/21/19): Foiled by Fall Foliage

Today’s read is from Jase Graves, an award-winning humor columnist from East Texas. Here’s a brief excerpt.

War has come to my yard! But this battle doesn’t involve modern conventional weapons with individual rounds of ammunition that cost almost as much as my eldest and most expensive daughter’s wardrobe. Instead, this is a battle against one of the most annoying forces of nature known to man – the scourge of autumn leaves.

UPDATE: New bright shining star in Congress for the GOP

Previously on This Just In…

The update: I received this e-mail.

Kevin,

The “war on women” is real, but this time it’s coming from Democrats – who have trained ALL their ammo on me. Why? For attempting to speak during the impeachment hearings about Rep Schiff’s partisan “hearing”.

Now, in just the last few days:

  • ABC News’ Matthew Dowd tweeted that I was only elected because I was a woman and a millennial – like that was a bad thing. Of course, he’d praise me if I was a left-wing Democrat.
  • I was called “lying trash” by George Conway, who then urged Democrats to give to my opponent.
  • Those left-wing donors answered – and generated $600k for my opponent in just 3 days.

I have to be honest. That money will overwhelm my campaign if it can’t be matched immediately. Can I count on you?

I will need at least 1,000 donors to do it. That’s why I need your support right now.

For the last three years the Democrats have called every Republican a sexist. They’ve said we hate women.

Well I’m a woman, and a proud conservative. In fact, I was the youngest woman ever elected to Congress when I won my first race.

Last week, I exposed Adam Schiff using his own words. But the “Impeacher in Chief” silenced me.

He silenced me because he’s afraid of me. He doesn’t want America to see a young conservative woman standing with the President.

Well, he couldn’t get rid of me. And I won’t back down. EVER.

That’s why the Democrats are attacking me now with all they’ve got.

Fortunately, a group of conservative leaders are standing with me and they’ve agreed to match every dollar I raise online for the next 24 hours.

That’s why I need your support right now.

They tried hard to defeat me last year, with my opponent raising $1.5 million for the effort. And now they’re desperate to make an example of me.

They’re doing all they can turn that $1.5 million dollars into $3 million dollars, or more… this weekend, my 2020 Democrat opponent raised more than $600,000, with radical Democrats across America pouring in donations because I stood against Schiff and these phony impeachment hearings.

That money will now flow into my district to buy TV ads, radio ads, digital ads, and fund every dishonest attack and dirty trick in the Democrat arsenal.

After last week, I’m their number one target. 

But I’m not afraid of them, because I know I have two things they don’t have – the truth, and the support of proud conservatives like you.

Kevin, I’m going to keep fighting Schiff, I’m never going to back down. Will you support my efforts by donating $15, $35, or even $50 today? Remember, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

My entire life I’ve been a proud conservative. That means, on top of believing in God & country, I also believe in facts and reason. I know the Democrats don’t.

That’s why they’re trying to impeach the President. And its why Adam Schiff attacked me, and why he’s trying to silence my voice.

This is why I must (and will) keep fighting this impeachment insanity. But I can’t do it alone.

We can’t waste this opportunity. For the next 24 hours, every dollar we raise online will be doubled. Please, help me keep fighting by donating anything. Even as little as $15 will be a huge help.

Thank you so much for your support.

Together, we can Make America Even Greater.

Steve Taylor reacts to Deanna Alexander’s latest announcement

By Guest Blogger, Franklin Alderman Steve Taylor
Former Milwaukee County Supervisor

Deanna Alexander announced that she wasn’t running for re-election to the Milwaukee County Board via Facebook and a press release.  It has been awhile since I laughed this hard.  Her reasoning is complete and utter bullshit.  At no time have I or anyone I know involved in politics ever heard her say that she “promised” self-imposed term limits.  What is funny is that she can’t even get her story straight.

First, she states that she would serve no more than eight consecutive years.  Then she changed her story saying she would serve no more than three terms.  Here is what is hilarious about these two statements.  She says her “promise” came when she first ran in 2012.  At that time three terms would have meant twelve years; she has served eight.  State law changed in 2013 reducing the length of supervisor’s terms from four years to two years.  Deanna didn’t know this was going to occur when she made this “promise” and any reasonable person wouldn’t fault her if she wanted to run again.

The reality is that she isn’t running again because she knows she would lose.  The reason is simple.  Not only did she file a bogus lawsuit against me, but she also sued former Governor Walker 5 days before his election.  I know for a fact that there are many Republicans who are still very upset about her stunt.  If you read the lawsuit you would understand why these prominent Republicans want nothing to do with her.  So, her rationale about some “promise” being the reason for not running is an outright lie.

Lastly, she didn’t run as a conservative.  She ran and looked for support wherever she could get it.  I met her at a Republican Reagan Day Dinner in February of 2012.  She introduced herself as independent and told me that she recently had been to a Democratic Party function looking for support.  When I think about Deanna all I think about is tofu.  You see, tofu has little to no taste itself but when combined with something else it takes on that flavor.  This is who Deanna truly is.  She morphed into whatever suited her best.  She is a “conservative” without conviction and finally that fact caught up to her.

Today’s highly interesting read (11/20/19): Dealing with Anti-Hunters

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, outdoor and nature

The annual deer hunting season in Wisconsin begins Saturday. I’m not a hunter but a strong supporter for lots of reasons.

Here’s a previous post worth repeating.

Today’s read is from one of my all-time favorite columnists. Doug Giles is also a minister and avid hunter.

“…if you believe that hunting and providing for yourself and others high protein, low fat, yumminess; and you’re ok with being hands on via hunting with your conservation of land and animals, then according to the Daily Mail you’re a “poaching, murderous mook who’s culpable for the mass eradication of lions and elephants all because you sport a small male appendage,” or something to that effect.

Sadly, this is our reality here in the United States of Whiners.

So … how do we, the hunters, traverse this tricky milieu of political correctness that has been foisted upon us who hunt this 3rd rock from the sun?

Herewith are My 10 Commandments for Dealing With Anti-Hunting, Doe-Eyed, Tree-Humpers.
