Anybody tried these NeoMags?

A magnetic magazine holder that lets you carry a spare mag in your front pocket.  I have one friend back home who uses it, but he dresses in slacks or business clothing.  I need to know if this thing will keep the magazine in my jeans pocket as I drive around either in a car or on a bike.

Anyone out there tried it?

And this is why Granny Rictus wanted to be Speaker so badly

So that she and her family can go take vacations on the government's dime.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world.
Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

That's one hell of a bill, eh?

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.

As usual with Socialists, they demand that we pay more money in taxes so that they can steal it and live a life of luxury.

Overall, Pelosi’s European excursion cost the Air Force about the same amount of money it would take to send a student to Harvard University for four years. Judicial Watch compared the trip to Republican Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner’s CODEL trip with multiple stops in east Asia in August 2015. The trip led by Gardner, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, cost at least $26,009.03 for commercial flights and per diems, according to records cited by Judicial Watch.

There's more in the article.  Go read it all, and understand that this vile, evil, Marxist hag has been living large off of you and I for over thirty years at this point.  I'm glad Trump cancelled her European Vacation, which by the way she was taking her family with YET AGAIN.

At this point I'm glad that Hell exists, because I know that Nancy Pelosi will be burning in hell for all of eternity.

When National Review goes under, I'll shed a tear for what might have been.

But as for right now, fuck the fucking fuckers.  In case you were actually out enjoying your life instead of watching news this weekend, the Liberal Democrat Media Complex was dog-piling on a bunch of Catholic high school kids for daring to smile while they were being abused after the March for Life.

Apparently, the few remaining non-pedophile Democrats have been feeling left out and needed a way that they, too, could ruin children’s lives. This weekend they found it. A Native American hate crime hoax targeted children from a Christian school, Covington Catholic, wrongly claiming that its students were hateful bigots taunting a defenseless old Native American elder. The truth? They’d been called “faggots” by black Muslim protesters and were deliberately provoked by the indigenous rights activist, a longtime Democrat political operative called Nathan Phillips whose “Vietnam vet” credentials are now being called into question. Far from being smug bullies as reported, Covington students were smiling so as not to get angry at being provoked by black protesters and then by a Native American elder who approached them to taunt them—in other words, they were remaining good-natured out of Christian charity. 
This is what the progressive Left in America does now: Destroy children’s lives for political gain.

We all know that the Democrat Media is the enemy of the people, and they prove it on a daily basis.  But what is sticking in the craw of so many people is how quickly and willingly the supposed "conservative" media jumped on board with the bashing.

That’s all predictable enough. Less predictable was National Review rushing out a now-deleted op-ed accusing the wrongly-accused Covington students of “evil” behavior and claiming they “might as well have just spit on the cross. Or a virtue-signalling Ross Douthat going in on Twitter without having a clue about the facts. You will recall that these are the same people constantly lecturing the rest of us about propriety, manners and restraint.
Deleted, yes, but not a single hint of remorse at publicly excoriating kids who had done nothing wrong, who's lives are now turned upside down as the Leftist hate-mob, aided and abetted by supposed "conservatives", have doxed the kids and their family members over a story that was a complete and utter lie from the very first second it crested on Twitter.

Let’s please remember all this the next time journalists, professors and talking heads on TV tell improbable tales of bigotry and hatred. Aggressive public displays of virtue are where the morally deplorable hide, which is how you know all politicians are scumbags, why social justice warriors always turn out to be perverts and felons, and why you can be confident assuming the majority of journalists are repellent, ethically sickening people. Especially the ones who claim to be Right-wing. I can take people who declare themselves my enemy. What I can’t abide is snakes, opportunists, backstabbers and liars on my own side.

National Review went full NeverTrump in 2016, to include insulting and smearing quite a few of their own readers, and they're suffering the predictable result.  Hell, both my father and I ended our subscriptions over it, as we get insulted and heckled enough by Leftists that we don't need it from people who were supposedly on our side.  Now it seems that their hatred of Trump and his supporters have allowed them to essentially jump on the Liberal Left train at every opportunity.

And let's be clear - I watched the video.  The kids did nothing wrong.  The black idiots screaming "FAGGOT!" at the kids were the problem.  The liar known as Nathan Phillips, who attempted to intimidate the kids and who provoked this entire episode, he did something wrong.  And every so-called conservative who jumped on the Liberal hate train should hang their head in shame for the rest of their lives as they enabled a Leftist mob who is now in the process of attempting to destroy the lives of those kids and their families.

The families of those kids are now publicly talking about suing.  Good sue the fucking bastards into bankruptcy.  Make the Leftist hate mob, of which the media is the ringleader, cheerleader and instigator, pay for their lies.  Fucking ruin every virtue-signaling asshole, starting with whoever the fuck is shipping that lying liar Nathan Phillips around the country so he can protest and start shit.

Make.  Them.  Pay.

For you motorcycle riders

Here's a little photo of my Airhawk seat cushion after 15,000 miles.  This thing has doubled my riding time.  Given my *ahem* age related physical issues, anything more than a couple of hours on the bike left me feeling rather beaten.  This cushion has allowed me to ride all day.  I can honestly say this is the best accessory I've purchased for my motorcycle, hands down.


The inner cushion is still good.  I only had to replace the cover. 

Y'all know I don't do product placement unless I really like it.  I'm not getting any money or even any notoriety from Airhawk.  They just work that damn well.  If you're a rider, look at their seat cushions.  They also made cushions for passenger seats.  They're worth every penny.

Things I learned from nature shows

A male salmon's "O" face looks pretty much like a human's.

https://youtu.be/rZWiWh5acbE

Yep.

Thunder

Literally.  We had storms blow through last night, and I still don't know how we didn't lose power.  Lightning was hitting close enough that the thunder was shaking me off the bed.  I felt like I was at Ft. Riley again watching the artillery fire off.

And of course, with every "KA-FUCKING-WHAM!" there was the dog letting off his "THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG OUTSIDE!" bark, which is like a mix of Chewbacca screaming and some demon from the depths of hell announcing his presence at your bedside.

I'm running on little sleep.  Don't ask me to do math right now.

This. Is. GLORIOUS!

Granny Rictus just got Trumped.

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!





I don't think I can express in words just how happy this makes me.  The Democrats have been vacationing in Hawaii, going on junkets to Puerto Rico to meet with lobbyists, and now were going on a European vacation on OUR DIME with the flimsy excuse of "going to visit the troops".  Horseshit.  Absolute horseshit, and I'm glad it got shut down.  But I'm even happier that it got shut down in such a publicly humiliating way for the Democrats.  It's ABOUT DAMN TIME.

Well, I've just found my new theme song

Now I need to find sheet music.

Democrats refuse to meet with Angel Moms, cry about furloughed federal workers instead

No, really.  Granny Rictus actually ran away from the Angel Moms so that she could pull her crocodile tears out on the capitol steps.

This rally came a day after a group of Angel Moms (mothers of those killed by illegal immigrants) wielded giant photos of their murdered children at the offices of Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 
The Angel Moms have attempted in vain all month to meet with Democrat leaders to discuss legislation to fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall. 
Angel Mom Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was killed by an illegal alien in 2012, reacted to Schumer's rally on Twitter, saying: "Really? They can still hug their children, many of us Angel moms will never b able to do that. I would give up everything to just have my son for 1 hour."

Just a reminder, the cost of illegal aliens to the USA is upwards of $135 BILLION A YEAR.  Trump wants $5.7 Billion for the wall.  That's 4% of what the USA spends on illegal aliens.  It would pay for itself in a year.

But Democrats don't care about that.  They care about importing more voters so that they can win elections with a more pliable electorate.  Democrats certainly don't care about the hard-working Americans who are affected by the tens of millions of illegal aliens who are here in this country, committing crime (to include rape, murder and drug running), driving down wages, and turning parts of this country into miniature versions of the shitholes they came from.
