Great Expectations


In the last post, we considered how young women are very prone to feeling that they are special snowflakes; and consequently deserve whatever it is that they desire.  As probably all readers have seen, this leads to much unhappiness, mental issues, disorders, etc.  I almost dare you to give me an example where it did not.

Is there a solution for this problem?  Why, yes there is.  The best way is to prevent it from ever starting; for it is much more work to fix after it takes hold.

What is the solution you may ask?  It is really simple.  It is to realize that the person is not all that.  That everything desired is not necessarily something that they are entitled to.  That life is often hard work and compromises.

For once a person obtains that mentality, then all things that are “above bad” can be enjoyed and appreciated.  There is hardly one more silly than one who through their own entitlement/expectations makes themselves miserable.

    Retired General James Mattis, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of Defense, capped a series of head-turning confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill this week.

    Early in the week, nominees presented a stark contrast to Senate Democrats. On one side, Americans saw well-prepared, highly dignified appointees appear before elected officials from both parties. On the other side, hostile questioners from the left grilled the nominees, almost reflexively manufacturing attacks on character and asserting gaps in knowledge – which, to a casual observer, seemed nonexistent. Half dozen nominees have been nothing – if not meticulously prepared. What does this portend for the coming Trump dministration? . . .

    What does the solid performance of these appointees, against a shaky backdrop, foretell?

    First, these Trump appointees are demonstrating high respect for process and truth, something for which every American should be glad.

    Second, we are learning something intangible about the future of this administration. Whether Democrats continue their stubborn resistance and inglorious slide, or choose to arrest it, is really secondary.

    Primary is what we are learning about the quality of preparation, patience and temperament of those who will soon lead major departments.

    The unspoken message is heartening. The nominees are not newbies. Nor are they misaligned with their assigned missions. They are seasoned professionals. And they are acting that way. They are proving candid and deep, sensible, at times even sage. They know the ropes, their fields, the challenges that lie ahead of them – and respect Congress. Or at least that is the distinct impression they leave.

    Collectively, these early appointees have endured dozens of hours of leading questions, transparent attempts (largely unavailing) at character assassination, and attempts to derail their focus.

    They have weathered the storm. All the while, Heartland Americans have watched the process, including these spasms of senatorial haughtiness, and wondered: Is there more to this team than we thought? Great depth, more decency, honor and hope?

    The tables have somehow begun to turn. Senate Democrats cannot digest reality. Exhaustive witness preparation and performance tells you what lies ahead.

    The left is used to losing political battles. They scream and cry over these but they don’t truly panic, because they know that as long as they maintain their hammerlock on the culture, Republicans can’t really change anything.

    Blue Team Progressivism is a church, offering you moral superiority and a path to spiritual enlightenment. As a church it’s got a lot going for it. It runs religious programming on television, all day every day. Every modern primetime program is like a left-wing Andy Griffith show, reinforcing lessons of inclusion, tolerance, feminism, and anti-racism.

    Watching a 90-pound Sci-Fi heroine beat up a room full of giant evil men is as satisfying to the left as John Wayne westerns were for the right.

    The Blue Church controls the HR department, so even if you don’t go to church, you have to act like a loyal churchgoer in every way that matters while you’re on the clock. And off the clock, on any kind of public social media platform.

    Jon Stewart and John Oliver are basically TV preachers. Watching them gives the same sense of quiet superiority your grandma gets from watching The 700 Club. The messages are constantly reinforced, providing that lovely dopamine hit, like an angel’s voice whispering, “You’re right, you’re better, you’re winning.”

    Hollywood award shows are like church talent shows – the skits and jokes aren’t really funny, but it’s fun to look at the pretty girls, and you’re all on the same team. . . .

    For the first time in decades, voters explicitly rejected the Blue Church, defying hours of daily cultural programming, years of indoctrination from the schools, and dozens of explicit warnings from HR.

    We’ve been trained since childhood to obey the pretty people on TV, but for the first time in decades, that didn’t work.

    Donald Trump won because flyover America wants their culture back, and Blue Team has not been rejected like that before.

    The younger ones have grown up in an environment where Blue Faith assumptions cannot even be questioned, except anonymously by the bad kids on Twitter.

    But now the bad kids are getting bolder, posting funny memes that make you laugh even though John Oliver would not approve, like passing crude dirty pictures under the table in Sunday School.

    Meryl Streep is panicking because for the first time voters have rejected HER, and everything her faith has taught her to believe.

    While they are plotting, it was mentioned that they have a dearth of people supporting this. I hope it fizzles or confines itself to pranks. However, should anyone get hurt, I hope that they prosecute them as terrorists with full vigor.

    bigtexWelcome to the Fried Food Capital of Texas! aka the State Fair of Texas.

    You’ve heard the phrase, “Don’t try this at home.” Well, that warning may also apply to these recipes, but each year it’s hard to not be overcome with a mix of disgust, amusement and even a curious craving at the fried offerings of the Texas State Fair. For some, it’s THE reason to attend year after year.

    “What will they fry next!?” How about baked potatoes and shrimp boils? There’s much more to look forward to, as well.

    Til then, we’ve trolled the sources and made some adjustments, but here are a few recipes for some of the more popular State Fair items over the years.

    What’s your favorite fried State Fair dish? Do you have a similar fried recipe to share? Please do! We’ll be glad to share more.

    Corn Dogs

    1 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 cup flour
    ¼ tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    ¼ tsp. sugar
    4 tsp. baking powder
    1 egg
    1¼ cup milk
    Vegetable oil for frying
    About 16 beef hot dogs (2 packs)
    16 wooden skewers
    Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add milk and egg to the bowl and whisk well. Insert skewers into hot dogs, then dip into the batter to cover hot dog completely. Cook battered hot dogs in a large pot of vegetable oil until golden brown.

    Fried Butter

    2 ounces cream cheese
    2 sticks butter
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 egg, beaten
    1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    Salt and pepper
    Vegetable oil for frying
    Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, cream cheese, salt and pepper (to taste) until smooth. Form small balls of the mixture and arrange on a parchment-paper lined pan, then freeze them. Coat the frozen balls in flour, egg, and then breadcrumbs and freeze again. Fry (oil at 350 degrees) balls for 10 to 15 seconds until just light golden.

    Fried Coke

    3 eggs
    2 cups cola
    1/4 cup sugar
    3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Vegetable oil for deep frying
    Powdered sugar
    Cola syrup
    In a large bowl, beat the eggs, and then add the cola and sugar. Blend together the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to cola mixture until batter is smooth. Fry (oil at 375 degrees) small dough balls for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Dust hot coke balls with powdered sugar. Drizzle with cola syrup.

    Funnel Cakes

    1 egg
    2/3 cup milk
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1-1/2 cups flour, sifted
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    Vegetable oil
    Confectioners’ sugar
    Combine beaten egg and milk. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, salt and baking powder together. Slowly add the egg/milk mixture and beat until smooth. Pour batter into a funnel, using finger to keep tip closed. Hold funnel over hot oil (375 degrees), remove finger and allow batter to drop into oil (about 1/4 cup of batter at a time). Build a circular funnel cake starting from the center moving outward. Turn once, and remove from oil when golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm. Additional topping suggestions include cinnamon, strawberries, chocolate sauce, etc.

    You can also use the funnel cake batter to make Fried Snickers.

    Fried Snickers

    Snickers candy bars
    Popsicle sticks
    Funnel cake batter (see above)
    Oil
    Insert popsicle sticks into Snickers bar from the bottom about half way up. Freeze Snickers until frozen solid. Dip frozen Snickers in the funnel cake batter. Fry until golden brown. Top with powdered sugar or caramel sauce if desired.

    Fried Twinkies The Twinkie went away in November, but a private equity firm took over the Hostess brand after Hostess filed for bankruptcy. Twinkies are back on shelves. But, just in case, Little Debbie Cloud Cakes are apparently Twinkies’ twin. I personally, don’t like either.

    6 Twinkies (frozen)
    1 cup milk
    2 tablespoons vinegar
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Strawberry Sauce (recipe follows)
    4 cups vegetable oil
    Flour for dusting
    Freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight. Combine milk, vinegar and oil. In a separate mixing bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt. Add wet ingredients into dry mixture and blend until smooth. Dust Twinkie with flour and dip into the batter. Place battered Twinkie into hot oil. Because the Twinkie will float, use a fryer-safe cooking utensil to keep it submerged and cooking evenly. Cook until it reaches a golden brown color.

    Dust with powdered sugar. Optional: Strawberry topping.

    Strawberry topping

    1 pint of strawberries
    1/3 cup sugar
    Clean and cut strawberries in quarters. Combine strawberries and sugar in a saucepan and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

    How can Hostess go bankrupt in the middle of an obesity epidemic? That would require truly inept management.

    In spite of the fact that this behavior lost them the White House and both houses of Congress, the center left of the Democratic Party continues to rely on manufactured outrage based on misleading claims in order to distract the public from its corruption and rally support from its base.

    Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events.

    Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”

    “Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad.

    “We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues. “We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”

    The job offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.

    Yet despite that torrent, those who relied on the Corporation’s coverage could be forgiven for feeling a bit baffled. Before the election it was made pretty clear to us that Trump would lose. The only votes he would get would come from old white men on low incomes who were angry, bitter and twisted. We were assured that he would only get the votes of the sexists and racists.

    When Hillary Clinton called them the “basket of deplorables” it was regarded as a gaffe in the United States but by contrast the BBC seemed to feel the phrase was a pithy and accurate piece of electoral analysis.

    Speaking of Hillary, it would be puzzling for BBC viewers to understand why she should be unpopular. The narrative was of an experienced, decent candidate who was destined to break the glass ceiling. The BBC North America editor Jon Sopel is clearly a fan. So is Jon Snow of Channel 4 News. The same goes for Julie Etchingham of ITV. But then there are so many others among the “expert” pundits of British TV that it would take too long to list them all. The bias was not about specific lapses, it was constant.

    This didn’t just mean that the professional standard of due impartiality was ditched. It also left the chattering classes incapable of explaining the result. So how come Trump persuaded 29 percent of Latinos to vote for him? And 42 percent of women? His share of the black vote was a modest eight per cent – but that was higher than Mitt Romney managed as the Republican Party candidate four years
    earlier.

    It might be good for men to leave social media alone. These women can buy their own goddamn drinks.

    As for George Soros, if he is funding black hate groups knowing they are going to resort to violence, I think he needs to find a new country to live in. Whatever he contributes in taxes is not enough to make up for all the destruction caused. If we are going to deport honest field and kitchen workers, why should we put up with him?
