Just look at those starving and suffering poor crippled souls who are so impoverished that they had to leave their families, girlfriends, wives, children, parents and grandparents behind to fight and die for the countries they escaped from.
Via Executive Order, President Trump suspended immigration from 7 countries that support violent jihad: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria & Yemen. There are 50 muslim-majority countries (Pew Research Center, 2010) so…
86% of all muslim-majority countries are NOT affected by the immigration suspension.
For those who think this edict is outrageous, un-Constitutional and unprecedented, please read Article 1. Read the rest of the U.S. Constitution while you’re at it, including the Amendments. Sure beats watching “The View” for American history and practical math.

On 24 January, Mozilla disabled the popular “Web Of Trust” (WOT) add-on to the Firefox browser due to security / privacy breaches. Other browsers that allow the add-on (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) are affected as well. The problem was verified by a German team last November, and has yet to be remedied by the WOT engineers.

That video reminds me of this classic:
Which reminds me of this one:
Which reminds me of something entirely unrelated:
That TV theme song was sappy, annoying and cloying as hell, but everyone had a crush on Mary (including me) once she tossed her hat in the air for some unexplained reason. She did it every week, so I guess she had a lot of hats. RIP MTM.
Then there’s these guys. Kinda Kinks, kinda Doors, kinda Byrds, kinda stuff I kinda like. [h/t Bunkessa. She says they’re a “look at your shoes” band.]
Have a great weekend, folks.
Tet 2017 – The Year of the Rooster.
My late Papa Strutts always referred to it by its original descriptive, The Year of the Cock. Both he and I were born in those years, so go figger.
The photos above were taken during a Tet Parade in Little Saigon, California, the largest Vietnamese community outside of Vietnam. The pretty girls in the bottom photo are waving the flag of the vanquished Republic of Vietnam, not the communist state.
Years ago I made friends with a local Vietnamese shopkeeper and gave her my copy of the current issue of National Geographic that had a lot of photos of the country. She and her non-English speaking husband were amazed, recognized a lot of the places pictured, and I asked her where she was from, expecting the name of a city or province in South Viet Nam. She replied, “Kansas.”
