Happy Feet Friday

So, is this "cultural appropriation"? Two European dudes and an Australian playing a positively stompin' version of "Guitar Boogie"? Who cares, it's some fine pickin'.

Well done, old top!

A Korean War veteran in the UK takes on a passel of young hoodlums.

"Fear is not in my vocabulary."

No, but apparently kickin' ass is. Good work, Mr. Nixon.

Billy Graham, RIP

The Rev. Billy Graham has died at age 99.

I remember watching his television crusades as a small boy, and even then, was much taken with the transparent sincerity of his faith, the passion in his voice and his obvious love for his fellow man. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

Update: Bruce in the comments provides a link to an interesting tribute from Joe Bob Briggs.

Haw!

Eyes opened

A former advocate of Muslim immigration in Germany makes a U-turn based on her own observations and experiences:
I had to admit to myself that when it comes to Muslim refugees, they have grown up with completely different values, into which they have been brainwashed and are indoctrinated by Islam, and have no intention of adopting our values – worse, they look at us, unbelievers with superiority and arrogance.

No minimum IQ level required to run for president

Which means something like this could happen: "Biden telling policy aides 2020 run a real possibility".

Hey, progs, want to repeal the 2nd Amendment?

Then, as Charles C.W. Cooke wrote in 2015, get going:
When Australia took its decision to Do Something, the Australian citizenry owned between 2 and 3 million guns. Despite the compliance of the people and the lack of an entrenched gun culture, the government got maybe three-quarters of a million of them — somewhere between a fifth and a third of the total. That wouldn’t be good enough here, of course. There are around 350 million privately owned guns in America, which means that if you picked up one in three, you’d only be returning the stock to where it was in 1994. Does that sound difficult? Sure! After all, this is a country of 330 million people spread out across 3.8 million square miles, and if we know one thing about the American people, it’s that they do not go quietly into the night.
