Bye…

Farewell to Baroness Thatcher (1925-2013).

You know what was really fun? After Reagan (PBUH) died, all the journalists pretending they’d had the utmost respect for him, always (subtext: “not like this current crop of pickled wingnuts”). That’s why we need to keep old people around; they know when the bastards are lying to us about the past.

I don’t think journalists here can QUITE manage pretend they for Maggie, but it’s instructive to watch them struggle not to smile and fist-pump the air today. Most of the obits have headlines that include “divisive” and “controversial” — words that generally mean “hated by the left.”

Oh, well. G’bye, MagOn, and thanks.

I mean, besides sounding badass, what is a Baroness? I always thought it was just some birthright title.

@Bob Mulroy, There ought to be more bloodhounds. Very useful if properly trained.

We used to have Irish wolfhounds on the ranch and these were wonderful workers.
The decline of mankind is such that nowadays one takes a plump Weasel, gives it a blowdry and a perm and sells it as a toy poodle. And there is a market for it.

As I was saying, the mankind is in decline when we yearn for return of an actor who starred in “Hellcats of the Navy” to play a senior federal official. As astonishing as it sounds, it seems like an improvement over Choom Gangster with thin resume.

For our Britisher cousins, the situation is eerily similar: Blair, Brown and Cameron would make just about anyone yearn for The Baroness.

@Gromulin, The Baroness is a fine remote perforation machine devised by Blaser. Class, precision and value. It just comes alive in your hands.

Baron/Baroness began, in the U.K., way back with William the First, aka William The Conqueror – there’s a pretty good layout on it here, in Wikipedia. (When you Google-search “baron baroness u.k.”, there’s another much-more-direct one via UK.Answers.Yahoo.com, but I didn’t link to that one – I try to avoid that spam-trap, it’s spooky down there)

Essentially a mostly-honorary peerage in Maggie Thatcher’s case, barons/baronesses are the bottom rank of the U.K. peerage, below earls and viscounts. William, back in the day, had a pretty big kingdom to defend (having recently wrested much of it away from those Saxon “barbarians” by force of arms) and was short of earls to defend it, both on the outer reaches militarily and in what became the House Of Lords – thus, he created baronies/barons, somewhat-lesser ranks and smaller estates, to fill out the peerage. Barons were men-at-arms who pledged fealty to the Crown – William – and received lands and a title, with a lower-level peer’s rank at Court, in return. Baronesses, originally, came about as barons died off, and, sometimes, their widows took over control. Later, barons and baronesses came to be (as in Margaret Thatcher’s case) appointments made as honorariums, for “service to the Kingdom”, making the recipient a peer, but generally without the obligation of military assistance or the granting of land or an estate.

You can look it up -

Ave atque vale, Baroness Thatcher – you were, truly, one of the best and brightest, and a highly-effective scourge to the Left at a time when your nation clearly needed such.

Sad that the scourging effects mostly did not endure – but, that’s another mess altogether.

One of my favorite illustrations from the magazine National Review (circa 1982) was a drawing of Thatcher dragging the (emblematic) Lion of Britain backwards by the tail, and the lion was smiling and radiating little “heart” bubbles. I saved it, but I’ve misplaced it. When I find again, I plan on framing it.

I’m not usually this tacky, but I did a little drawing of Maggie (yes, Mrs C, it’s your dick award) and the more I read quotes from her, the more I wanted to put them on t-shirts. So I did.

Maggie wouldn’t begrudge me a little capitalism.

Ha! I am not doing a picture of Maggie playing the banjo. Blasphemy.

I once had a dream about sharing a rowboat with her, though. We were off the coast of Panama and it was on fire. I remember the fire gleamed in her shiny hairspray.

When I woke up, turns out the news was on TV and we’d invaded Panama. I can only assume they were quoting her earlier.

While getting my second degree as an older woman and mother, I took a women’s studies class in college (hey, it was an easy A) and we all had to do a semester project, it could be anything, a paper, a speech, a film. I chose to do a water color painting. I called it the 3 Margarets. It was a picture of Margaret Atwood, Margaret Sanger (she was probably screaming for joy at this point) then I discussed the last person… Margaret Thatcher. You could literally see the muscles tense up in her face. I went on to discuss their contributions in literature, eugenics and politics. It was deeeeeeeelicious! Surprised I even passed that class. Maybe she blamed my pregnancy hormones, I was 8 months at that point and hard to miss!

One coffee cup coming up. If you can’t read the quotes, by the way, I repeat them in the description (they’d be readable on a shirt, just not so much in the small reproduction on-screen). She said some simply awesome things, which is what got my motor running.

I like one of Thatcher’s campaign slogans: don’t just hope for a better future, vote for one.

Of course the left crapped all over the future she’d started to build.

Stoaty, the drawing of Baroness Thatcher is perfection. And for those thinking about getting a mug—especially if you are man with large hands—get the 15oz mug. It is heavy and handsome, and keeps coffee hot for a long time.

Together, she and Ronald Reagan dismantled the Soviet Union, and ended the cold war, without firing a shot.
