Seen at the local Big 5 Sporting Goods



My response was unprintable.  This state needs to be flushed out to sea, for the good of the country.

Been writing my congresscritters

Normally I do snail mail, but I shot of a couple of emails.  All original, no form letters.

How do you folks contact your Reps and Senators, and what do you find to be most effective?

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, 2A edition

From an old post at The Smallest Minority:

Being armed goes far beyond simple self-protection against thugs or even tyrants -- it's an unequivocal and unmatched lesson that you are politically and morally sovereign; that you, and not the state, are responsible for your life and your fate. This absolute personal sovereignty is the founding stone of the Republic. "A well-regulated militia" (where the militia is "the whole people") isn't just "necessary to the security of a free state" because it provides a backup to (and defense against) the police and the army. More importantly, keeping and bearing arms trains sovereign citizens in the art of freedom, and accustoms us to our authority and duty.

Emphasis mine.  It's not quite an uber-post.  Go read it all.  But that one paragraph says more than I could put out in an entire essay.

Cigars

Help keep me sane.

Actually, it's the time alone that a cigar gives me that helps keep me sane.  It's not very often I get someone who actually wants to smoke a cigar with me.  So most of the time it's just me, a cigar, and my thoughts, which I can sift through, clean up and store away for a later date.

You'd be amazed at how much that helps.

The past few days

Have been spent in Arizona, with the in-laws, and I have had a good time.

I smoked many a cigar outside next to a firepit.

I have drank way too much bourbon.

I have caroled at a nursing home with the rest of the in-laws.  We managed three-part harmony, or four part if one person wandered off the melody a little too far.

I have enjoyed a feast that most people would give their eyeteeth for.  Crown roast of pork, sweet potatoes, stuffing made from scratch with all kinds of good ingredients, green bean casserole from scratch, asparagus, home-made bread, brandied yam soup, home-made panetone,  and plenty of good wine to wash it down.

I have managed to relax a bit in the past few days, and yet, in the space of less than half a day, I drove back into a state that I loathe, a city I cannot stand, to return to a job that I detest.  And all that relaxation has vanished.

It's going to be a long few years.

Hell yes, prosecute the bastard!

So David Gregory of NBC violated Washington D.C. gun laws when he waved around a 30-round clip for an AR-15.  He probably did not violate any laws intentionally.  He certainly was not threatening anyone's life.  But he broke the law, and people are wondering if he should get prosecuted for what he did.

HELL YES HE SHOULD!

Lock that fuckwit up and throw the book at him!  He is the one saying that there should be MORE gun laws and MORE gun control, isn't he?  Then let's make damn sure that he gets to feel the full effect of the gun laws that are already on the books!  Because if he isn't prosecuted, then he's proving exactly what the 2A people are saying:  More gun laws wouldn't do a thing.  If some fuck-witted asshat like David Gregory can violate the gun laws with impunity, then exactly how will MORE laws change anything?

Let the people screaming for more laws feel just what the law is like NOW.  PROSECUTE DAVID GREGORY FOR VIOLATING THE GUN LAWS OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

Seahawks roll

So, three weeks ago, the Seahawks stomped on Arizona.  And I said 'Yay!  But it's only the Cardinals."

Last week, they laid the hammer down on Buffalo.  And I said "WOO HOO!  But it's only Buffalo."

Last night, the Seahawks punched San Francisco right in the mouth and spit in their faces.  And I said "YEE HAW!  But it's only....  no, wait...  wow!"

See you in the playoffs!  BOOYAH, BABY!

Gee, Dave...

Why do you claim that reporters are nothing more than whores, communists and propaganda agents for the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party?

Well....  Listen to what they say when they think no one is listening.

What I truly think of the Democrat whores isn't fit to be read by anyone with a shred of decency.

A Darn Good Question

Where was the father?

We don't hear about the effects of fatherlessness, especially on young men. We don't hear that the most reliable predictor of crime is neither poverty nor race but growing up fatherless. We don't hear that a large majority of violent criminals were fatherless. We don't even hear that young male elephants go on violent rampages unless they are kept in line by the old bulls.

We know that Adam's parents separated around 2006 and divorced around 2008. We know that his father, Peter Lanza, moved to Stamford, CT, re-married, and is believed to earn about $1 million per year as a General Electric executive -- enough that Adam's mother and he have lived in a big home and that she has not worked.

The Daily Mail reports quotes several of Adam's former classmates to the effect that his problems got much worse after the separation. "He was always weird but the divorce affected him. He was arguing with his mother. He was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode."

But sure, GUNS are the problem, right?

Writing Christmas Cards

I never used to do it.  Now I've got a stack of cards to mail out or put in gift boxes.  It's amazing how your outlook on life changes as you get older.

The Wild Life in Los Angeles

Take a gander at this -


You can click for full size.  See that little four legged thing in the middle?  Coyote.  At the Los Angelese Country Club.  Look up in the hills - that's Beverly Hills.  To the left of this picture is Bel Air.  And right smack dab in the middle of it is a creature that we used to shoot for bounties in Idaho.

"Honey, have you seen Fluffy?  He never came in from his potty time!"

YipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipYIPE!

I was standing on the patio when I saw two ears bouncing up the green.  I kept watching, and sure enough that little bastard came right up on the green next to the clubhouse like he owned the place.  Stood their for a while, yawned, and went back to his hidey-hole.  Cheeky little shit.

Well, Yeah

Of COURSE the New York Times is deliberately lying.

The NYT is not “perpetuating myths,” it is consciously and knowingly lying with malice aforethought in an effort to push through various gun ban and confiscation laws which it greatly desires.

To pretend that they are making errors in good conscience is the myth that needs to be destroyed here. None of the facts Carney so painstakingly lays out here – and this is only the ten thousandth, or ten millionth, time these facts have been carefully, and publicly, pointed out – are hard to come by. In fact, if you are honest, they are impossible to avoid.

The New York Times, just like a majority of the legacy media outlets, are nothing more than Propaganda Organs for their Lord, God and Savior, the Marxist Messiah.  And they've been whores and propaganda spreaders for long before their Communist Christ ever came into their mouths office.  So the NYT doesn't really care about the facts, because the facts are inconvenient to their agenda.

The Endarkenment Cometh

As Kevin Baker likes to say.  America is slipping, and seems to be spiraling downhill with ever increasing speed.

Over the past four years, prosperity has increased around the globe, while it has remained stagnant in the United States, the Legatum Institute reports. As a result, the Institute ranked the United States 12th out of 142 countries on its 2012 Prosperity Index, putting the country outside the top ten for the first time.

 Congratulations, Komrades!  President Jug-ears Hussein Downgrade is taking on further into his glorious five-year plan of productivity!

The only joy I'm ever going to get out of this is using it to flat out HAMMER my socialist relatives to all voted for their lord, god and savior, the Marxist Messiah, the Teleprompter Jesus, the Communist Christ, Barack Hussein Obama.

Who is Mark Shields

And how can someone this brainlessly moronic be allowed on national TV?

And the question about -- is not whether somebody stands for or against this, whether you even bring it up. And the reality is that in the United States of America in 2012, it's easier in many states to rent an automobile -- to buy an automatic weapon than it is to rent an automobile. It's more demanding.

The fact that this idiot was not immediately laughed off the stage is proof of just how far the Prog-Commie rot has spread through our country.  Automatic weapons have been illegal for anyone without a Class III license since 1934.  This lie, and it is a lie, wasn't even questioned by the brain-dead commie fucktards on PBS.  They accepted it without thinking, because that's what kool-aide guzzling douche-tools do.

The conversation that needs to happen

In the wake of the Connecticut shooting, where the shooter was pretty much kookoo for Coco Puffs:

Idiots blame the tool for the misuse of the tool. In so many ways. Yes, involuntary commitment has been used for vile and inappropriate purposes. That is what needed to be addressed. But the “empathy endowed” decided that involuntarily committing anyone was a breech of their civil rights and now people who would have been helped by being in a safe, clean place where people understood what was going on with them are wandering the streets having arguments with mail boxes and sleeping in creeks.

Or they are still living with their families who have absolutely nowhere to turn when their loved one begins talking about the voices and the visions.

 A decent chunk of the homeless population is there because they're mentally sick.  For all the hue and cry about "helping the homeless", I have yet to meet one bleeding heart liberal who can explain just how we can help when a person literally believes that the pills that make him well also put him under the control of alien mind-control beams, and so he stops taking them, and not only forgets where he lives, but also who anyone around him might be, or what city he's in.

Look, I forget to take my vitamins about once a week.  For me, it's no big deal.  But for a paranoid schizophrenic, forgetting to take his medication once could be the difference between being able to take care of himself and wandering the streets muttering about God knows what.

I think one of the reasons this conversation won't happen is because the Democrat Media Propaganda Machine is still working on gun control, and using this story to further gun control is their M.O.

Also, they're probably working on a way to cover up the fact that it was the Democrats who wrote the legislation that pretty much abolished the mental institutions we used to have.

Either way, blaming an inanimate object for the evil done by someone with a mental illness is not going to ever fix the problem.

How the hell did I not know about this group?

Delta Rae....


That's because Warren Buffett is a god-damned hypocrite

Of COURSE he refuses to practice what he preaches!

Anyone who thinks that Warren Buffett is actually saying what he says out of altruism or patriotism needs to check themselves for kool-aide stains.  If he actually gave a shit about paying taxes, he would re-work his money funds to that he paid an actual INCOME TAX instead of investment taxes, which are taxed far lower than income.

But he won't do that.  Because he's a god-damned, gutless hypocrite.  That fucking tool.

Rand Paul lays out the obvious

Let the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party own the tax hikes.  Let them own ALL OF THEIR FAILURE.  

Stop working with the enemy!  Stop allowing the enemy to set the stage!  Stop allowing the enemy to blame conservatives for the enemy's failures!

Stop shooting ourselves in the foot, and let the commies own it all!

Punch Back Twice As Hard

Steven Crowder gets sucker-punched by union goons in Michigan.  Obama yawnsThe Americans For Prosperity tent gets torn down after a Democrat screams "THERE WILL BE BLOOD!" on Twitter.  It's ignored by the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party media and Propaganda Warehouse.

Fuck.  Them.  Up.

The next time some union goon starts beating on people, take a pipe to them so hard and so fast that they're eating their dinners through a straw for the rest of their miserable, pathetic lives.

They bring a knife?  We bring a gun. 

Fuck 'em.  They're enemies of freedom, and pawns of a Marxist regime.  Fuck them to hell, and let them cry when all their violence comes back at them ten-fold.

Master Butcher

As someone who's butchered deer and small game, this guy impresses the HELL out of me!

http://youtu.be/xijmge8_NJw

Deboning a deer in eight minutes...  I think that's a new record.

Air travel

I'd like to thank whoever put out the memo that all women need to travel in skin-tight stretch pants while going to and fro via an airplane.  It always lightens up the drudgery of travel when I can spend time observing whether or not women have a landing strip, full bush or hardwood floors.

Even More Advent Music

Wake, Awake for Night is Flying



This is a bit more upbeat than a lot of various Advent hymns, which is why I picked it for Sunday.  There's longing in the music, but also joy for knowing that our Savior will soon be born.  Which is, of course, the reason for the season.

Musical Interlude

For the Advent Season.  Contrary to modern belief, Christmas music is to be played on Christmas Day and the weeks following.  Advent music is to be played in the weeks before Christmas.



This is possibly the best known Advent song.  "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"

VENI veni, Emmanuel
captivum solve Israel,
qui gemit in exsilio,
privatus Dei Filio.
R: Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,
nascetur pro te Israel!
O COME, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that morns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.
R: Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel,
to thee shall come Emmanuel!
Veni, O Sapientia,
quae hic disponis omnia,
veni, viam prudentiae
ut doceas et gloriae. R.
O come, Thou Wisdom, from on high,
and order all things far and nigh;
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go. R.
Veni, veni, Adonai,
qui populo in Sinai
legem dedisti vertice
in maiestate gloriae. R.
O come, o come, Thou Lord of might,
who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
in ancient times did give the law,
in cloud, and majesty, and awe. R.
Veni, O Iesse virgula,
ex hostis tuos ungula,
de spectu tuos tartari
educ et antro barathri. R.
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse's stem,
from ev'ry foe deliver them
that trust Thy mighty power to save,
and give them vict'ry o'er the grave. R.
Veni, Clavis Davidica,
regna reclude caelica,
fac iter tutum superum,
et claude vias inferum. R.
O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav'nly home,
make safe the way that leads on high,
that we no more have cause to sigh. R.
Veni, veni O Oriens,
solare nos adveniens,
noctis depelle nebulas,
dirasque mortis tenebras. R.
O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
and cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night
and death's dark shadow put to flight. R.
Veni, veni, Rex Gentium,
veni, Redemptor omnium,
ut salvas tuos famulos
peccati sibi conscios. R.
O come, Desire of the nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid every strife and quarrel cease
and fill the world with heaven's peace. R.

50% tax rate in blue states?

Hell yeah!  Fuck them, THEY VOTED FOR THIS! 

Overall, the average top METR on wage income is scheduled to increase by approximately six percentage points (41.8% to 47.8%), while taxes on dividends would increase the greatest (19.0% to 47.9%). The top METRs on wages, dividends, interest, and partnership/sole proprietor income would exceed 50% in California, Hawaii, and New York City.

 Tax the ever-loving SHIT out of them!  Fuck California, fuck Hawaii, and fuck New York City.  Tax them so damn hard that they can't buy a fucking piece of pizza for lunch.  This is what they wanted, this is what they voted for, and dammit, we need to give it to them GOOD AND FUCKING HARD!  Tax them until Manhattan starts looking like Snake Pliskin's old stomping grounds, yaknowwhatI'msaying?

I'm going to call my congresscritters and let them know that if the tax proposals are going to rape the blue states, and fighting against them is a losing battle, then jack those tax rates up, baby.  REPEAL THE HOLLYWOOD TAX CUTS!  Make Hollywood pay it's FAIR SHARE!

Up in the morning, early v1.1

There comes a time, when having woken up at 0300 so that I can be at the office by 0400 so that I can drive and get to where I need to be by 0500, I begin to question my career choice.

I don't even get to shoot anybody when I finally get to where I need to go, unlike my previous MOS.  And trust me, after waking up at 0300 and driving through LA, shooting people needs to be a viable option in order to keep my job satisfaction up.

Did that make sense?  Hell, who knows.  It's almost 0330, and I don't have enough coffee in my system to type properly.

California Oyster Farmer being shut down

By the Nanny Government, who is telling the slaves and subjects what they are allowed to do.

People losing jobs?  Check.  People out of work and losing their homes?  Check.  A business that brought millions of dollars into the area being closed?  Check.

Sob, sob sob....  it's a heart-breaking article, yes, but...





THIS IS WHAT CALIFORNIA VOTED FOR.




Before you shed any tears, you need to keep that in mind.  This is what California voted for, and now they're going to get it.  How many of those farmers voted for Obama?  We-he-he-hELL now, them CHICKENS have come home to ROOST, haven't they?  Drakes Bay, right outside of Looney-ville CA, home to every leftist shibboleth that could ever exist or be dreamed of.  I don't think Mitt Romney got 25% of the vote from that area.  It's bluer-than-blue country, full of "progressives" who hate America and everything it stands for, until they demand their "right" to free healthcare and state-funded abortion held on alters where gays get married en masse

So to the people who are crying.  FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS!  To the people who are upset at losing their jobs.  FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS!  To the folks who are upset that the government is breaking it's pledge to the oyster farmers.  FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS!  People are going to lose their homes, and the economy is going to lose millions of dollars.  FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS!

FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS!!!!!  You wanted it, and NOW YOU WILL GET IT GOOD AND HARD!

NOTHING is this country is going to change until you hammer that phrase into the heads of liberals and other sycophants of the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party.  Boo-hoo, cry and whine?

FUCK YOU, YOU VOTED FOR THIS.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day


Capitalism is not an ideology. It is what people do when the government leaves them alone. 

Steve in Greensboro from the comments here.

Write that bad boy down and tattoo it on the heads of liberals everywhere.

When I was a kid

I wanted to be a truck driver.

My parents laughed, and my friends thought I was nuts.  But back when you're twelve, you don't have a concept of log books and delivery schedules.  You just know that men get into big trucks and travel all across the country doing whatever they're doing, and that appealed to me.  Greatly.  It still does.  There's still some part of me that wants to buy a truck, throw a camper on the back of it, and just drive.  Yellowstone?  Sure, let's go.  And when we're done we'll go to St. Louis for some ribs, and when we're done with that we'll take all the backroads of New York State and go get some Maine Lobster out of the waters in Maine, and then we'll go where ever the hell we want to go.

That appeals to me.  Greatly.



"We'll live out of my old van,
Travel all across this land,
Me and You."

The Culture of Death

Buck up, little campers - this is coming to America once Obamacare is fully implemented.


One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone. 

Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a  baby becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’. 

The LCP – on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year – is now the subject of an independent inquiry ordered by ministers.

(.....)

The use of end of life care methods on disabled newborn babies was revealed in the doctors’ bible, the British Medical Journal.  

Earlier this month, an un-named doctor wrote of the agony of watching the protracted deaths of babies. The doctor described one case of a baby born with ‘a lengthy list of unexpected congenital anomalies’, whose parents agreed to put it on the pathway.

Parents and care teams are unprepared for the sometimes severe changes that they will witness in the child’s physical appearance as severe dehydration ensues.
‘I know, as they cannot, the unique horror of witnessing a child become smaller and shrunken, as the only route out of a life that has become excruciating to the patient or to the parents who love their baby.’

  Once Obamacare and it's death panels take over, you'd be better off taking your relatives out back and putting a bullet into their brain, rather than entrusting them to the tender care of government-mandated death panels.

Luckily, most progressives don't own guns, which means that they'll get to feel the full effect of Obamacare.  Since they voted for it, I can only hope they experience every last flaw, and have that experience drawn out for as long as possible.

!!!!!

Free Ice Cream Machine is down

I slept in today, loved it.  Took the dogs running.  Now I'm about to have a kick-ass brunch of home-make waffles, home-made bacon and eggs.

After that, I'm going outside to smoke a cigar and read the news.

I really don't have much to blog about other than that.

Up in the morning, early

C'mon all you military folks, sing along!

"I don't like it, no way!"

So, since I'm up long before I want to be, here's a picture the Ragin' Mrs. snapped of me a while ago.  I was catching up on sleep on the couch, and the dogs decided they would join me.



The little one will take any opportunity he can to crawl on me and go to sleep, while the big one can go from ferocious guard dog to "Let's cuddle!" in 0.5 seconds.

Yeah, I know.  We're all real cute ain't we?

Fitting

That corrupt, mentally diseased Jesse Jackson, who won re-election in Chicago despite being locked up in a nuthouse for half a year and not campaigning, will be replaced by the person he bumped in the first place, who is not only corrupt but a kiddy-diddler.

Oh, yeah, I know there's supposedly an "election" to be held before the pre-selected choice takes his seat, but give me a fucking break here.  It's Chicago.  The choice has already been made, and Reynolds will be in Congress. 

Considering how the Chicago Machine's choice just spent the past four years raping the future generations of this country in order to fund his Marxist pipedreams, I think it's a rather fitting choice.

Why I would never get married in this age

Because the "modern" woman, as evidenced by modern culture here and here, point to a woman that is an immature, harpy-ish, self-entitled, arrogant, ignorant whore.

Lena Dunham and Sandra Fluke are nothing more than cheap whores, demanding that men pay for their free goodies.  And neither of them have the kind of personality that would make me want to be around them for more than five seconds.

Can you think of anyone who better represents the America of 2012 than Ms. Fluke? I can’t.

She’s got it all: The “Generation Cupcake” inadequacy (“So what if she didn’t earn the award — give it to her, anyway!); the “Occupod” sense of entitlement (“Somebody should be buying my condoms, and it ain’t gonna be me!”); and, of course, the liberal detachment from reality (“There’s a war on women! We’re being oppressed! Just ask Hillary Clinton, Condi Rice and Oprah!”).

Then there’s the economic angle. One could argue that the icon of the failing Obama economy is the college grad with a worthless degree under his arm and a bed in his mom’s basement.

Time magazine gives us Sandra Fluke, with a bachelor’s degree in (no joke) Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, no marketable skills, and still on the academic track, living on the largess of others.

 If I were an unmarried man in this day and age, I would run away from "modern" women as fast as I could.

Runner's Hankerchief

You know, where you plug one nostril and blow out the other?  I have it down to an art form.  I can do it and not miss a stride.

But when you can feel the snotball exit your nose, and hear it splat on the ground, you have to stop and see what the hell just came out of your sinuses.  It was almost the size of a kitten, I swear, and I think I saw it move under it's own power at least once.

I hate LA air.  Smog, dust, and pollen.  I have black boogers half the time.

Bacon

Cooked up some bacon this morning.  The house smells awesome.  The dogs are vibrating.  And I'ma gonna eat me some bacon.

And yes, the Ragin' household has a can in the fridge for bacon drippings.  Of COURSE we do!  What kind of barbarians would willingly throw away bacon drippings?

This is a bookmark for me

Because I don't have time tonight to listen and watch, but tomorrow I'm marking out a block of time to watch this.  And I'm posting this on Tuesday.



You should do the same.

When I said it, I meant it as satire

But you can't do satire these days.

“Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama ‘our lord and savior,” Noel Sheppard writes at Newsbusters, adding that this moment of Hollywood hilarity “occurred at the previously recorded Soul Train Awards broadcast on BET Sunday.”
Their Lord, God, Savior and King.  The Marxist Messiah.  The Teleprompter Jesus.

And then they scream about the separation of church and state, the fucking kool-aide guzzling tools.  

Education ≠ Intelligence

Or for that matter, it doesn't equal experience either.  Ever heard the phrase "Book Smart, Street Stupid"?

For my money, I agree with Bookworm:

These high earning, upper echelon people didn’t embrace Leftism because their intellectual analysis inexorably led them to it.  Instead, they embraced Leftism because their smarts mean they’ve been steeped in the Leftist stew for infinitely longer than the average American who didn’t go on to a higher degree.

These same people also remind me that academic smarts do not correlate with real life intelligence.  I have no doubt that these people are good lawyers, doctors, CEOs, ambassadors, etc.  What they’re trained to do, they do well.  Outside of their sphere of expertise, however, they’re remarkably naive and intellectually incurious.

Here’s my example for today:  In the wake of the election, I’ve heard five Obama supporters — all of whom also voted for all the California Democrats and for all the California taxes — complain that their taxes are going up next year.  The cognitive dissonance is almost painful.  All of them consistently embrace big spending — and, therefore Obama and his fellow Democrats — because they’ve been trained to believe that the spending on welfare, entitlements, and “select” businesses is a “good thing.”  This is a knee jerk belief.  They will always vote for these “good things,” and for the candidate who promises them.  And they will ignore the rhetoric about higher taxes (Obama was not shy about targeting them as the next big source of funding), and they will ignore fiscal cliffs, and they will ignore plain old common sense that says that someone must pay the piper.

 A while ago I had a raging debate with a lawyer who was also a Socialist.  Hard core, progressive Socialist, and for all his education he consistently refused to look at the historical record of socialism.  And this was while Greece was rioting and sliding further into debt, and all he could say was "Oh, that won't happen here". 

Really?  Ever been to Watts?  South Central?  Compton?

The common thread between all the Obama-bots, both rich and poor, is their economic illiteracy.  They literally cannot fathom economic reality, and so they vote according to the pipe-dreams fed to them by the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party, who continues to buy their votes with the money of the productive half of America.

That ought to scare the hell out of you.  And it's part of the reason that I think this country is doomed.  You cannot fix an economic problem when a majority of people think the economy can be fixed with unicorn farts and money trees.

Getting what I asked for

So last week I ordered my monthly supply of cigars, and included it that was a bundle of A.J. Fernandez "over-runs".  They're seconds, or perhaps they are over-runs, but they're unlabeled and you don't know which particular line of cigars they're from.

However, they're from A.J. Fernandez.  So, they're ManOWar, or Diesel, or La Herencia Cubana or any other number of cigars.  All of them good, and most of them powerful.  If you don't like a strong cigar, these things will blow your head off.  I happen to like strong cigars from time to time, so I ordered a bundle of toros.

So they came in the mail on Friday.  Into the humidor to get happy.  Lit one up just a minute or two ago, and this thing has to be from one of his stronger lines.  This is what I imagine a pre-Castro Cuban cigar to be; not just a palate pleaser, but you can feel it in your belly.

Damn good cigars.

What is wrong with our military....

....Can easily be encapsulated by reading what the "Leaders" think and do.  If the leadership of the Army is rotten, then the action of the Army, following those "Leader's" orders, will also be rotten.

Sure, just violate General Order #1!  Yeah!  Gosh, how could sex EVER cause problems in a war zone?  Let's just do away with that silly rule!

I think this writer just demonstrated in one brief bit of writing why men and women should not, ever, EVAR be in a combat unit together. 

Tis the Season

I heard this song over the speakers at a place we visited yesterday, and I was about to get upset until I realized that yes, it IS past Thanksgiving, and yes, it IS into the Christmas season.



You lose track of the Seasons when you live in Southern Cali.  More's the pity.  I miss my snow and frost on the ground.

Listening to the radio

And hearing all the brain-dead liberal retards react to the Israel/paloswinian situation, I just want to ask them:

What would they do if a group of people who's charter goal in life is to murder Americans started firing rockets over the border and killing Americans?

How many dead Americans would it take to get a reaction from these fucking douche-tools?

Were I the Israeli Prime Minister, I would carpet-bomb Gaza until it was nothing but rubble.  Then I would bomb it again.  Then I would fire-bomb it to burn anything that might still be living into ash.  And then I would order artillery strikes for seven days in a row, just to watch the rubble bounce.

And THEN, I would move in, secure the position, and let Egypt know that we really don't like to be messed with, so here is their ONE warning not to fuck with us.

Boo Friggin' Hoo.

Life in a Blue State after Hurricane Sandy.

As Sotelo tells it, when it became clear that the residents were less than enamored with their new accommodations Wednesday night and were letting the outside world know about it, officials tried to stop them from taking pictures, turned off the WiFi and said they couldn’t charge their smart phones because there wasn’t enough power.

“My 6-year-old daughter Angie was a premie and has a problem regulating her body temperature,” Sotelo noted. “Until 11 (Wednesday) night they had no medical personnel at all here, not even a nurse. After everyone started complaining and they found out we were contacting the press, they brought people in. Every time we plugged in an iPhone or something, the cops would come and unplug them. Yet when they moved us in they laid out cable on the table and the electricians told us they were setting up charging stations. But suddenly there wasn’t enough power.”

I don't know what these people are bitching about.  THIS IS WHAT THEY VOTED FOR.  I think it's only right that they get what they voted for good and hard.

!!!!!

Day of Rest

I spent all of yesterday in my jammies, not doing a damn thing other than dishes. 

It was a rather nice day.

Rainy Day

Make it feel almost like Seattle.  It's a nice change from the dry heat.

Spitting nails

Libertarians provided the margin of victory for Obama.

You want to know why I'm not a "Big L" libertarian?  When provided with an opportunity to get rid of the worst president in history, a Marxist, anti-American douche-tool, they chose their ideology over their country.

I ain't that fucking dumb.  Small steps forward are better than huge steps backwards.  And if I piss anyone off with that comment, please see Larry Correia's rant in the post directly below this one.  Yes, he's writing that to a guy who voted for Obama, but it holds just as true in the big picture to those who avoided Romney because of ideological purity.

MHI rocks

And the reason behind that is most likely because the writer also writes things like this:

So you say that you’re not a moocher, Bob? I don’t think I ever said that every single person that voted for Obama was a moocher… I actually think the democrats have built a winning combination of idealists who despite all evidence to the contrary think the government can actually make problems better, Marxist assholes, people who believe whatever the narrative is on TV, people who can’t think about anything more complex than a Facebook meme, dead and imaginary voters, and moochers.

To be fair though, the republican party is divided up between big government goons, democrats who think they are republicans, people who want the government to be our dad, people who think the government makes everything it touches turn to crap and who just want to be left alone, and libertarians who are smart enough to know that the most effective libertarian candidates in history have all been republicans.

You are probably a pretty well-meaning guy that doesn’t mind pulling the cart, but you voted for the moocher party. You voted for the party of bail outs, handouts, welfare, food stamps, government controlled healthcare, the Life of Julia, voting with your lady bits, racial quotas, Occupying Stuff, gun control, Obamaphones, and voter fraud, so I’m fresh out of pity if that hurts your feelings.

I'm friggin tired

And I can't wait for Thanksgiving to roll around, if only for the extra rest I'm going to get.

Because I love movie quotes

and I love "The Princess Bride".



INCONCEIVABLE!

Bike down

Electrical system is shorting out somewhere, and I lack both the technical manuals to help me fix it, and the money to actually get it fixed.

This.

Fucking.

Sucks.

Donkeyballs.

Sorry

I'm in a "Fuck it to hell" sort of mood.  Were I ten years younger, I'd be tying on a bender the likes of which would be whispered about for decades to come by college males and young Privates in the Army.

But those days are gone.  So now I'm just in a mood to see if I can get anyone to take a swing at me, so that I can punch them in the face until they're drinking their dinners through a straw for the next six months.

Monday, November 12, 2012

The Day Off

Going to work on the bike.  Clean out the carburetor, put new spark plugs in it, grease up the chain and take it for a spin.  This is going to be another sucky week, but I should have some decent time off for the holidays.

A Democrat states the truth

And there's really not a part that I can disagree with:

What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.

The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.

Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”

If there's not a better explanation of the Democrat American Communist Party, I don't know what is.

!!!!!

Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps

Fucking shit up for centuries and still going strong.  Ooo-rah.

Sure, why not?

Tax the ever living fuck out of Hollywood and sports stars.  All of those rich fuckers who voted for Obama?  Tax it all.  Fuck it - all those movie stars making $25 million dollars a film?

TAX IT AT 90%.  MAKE THEM PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE.  They'll still walk home with $2.5 million, right?  That's a hell of a lot more than I make.  FUCKING TAX IT ALL.

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Well...

It's apparent that America wanted a corrupt, narccissistc, incompotent Marxist as their lord, god, king and savior.


So they got him.

It was a beautiful country while it lasted.

VEGAS, baby! VEGAS!

Except I don't gamble at casinos, and I don't do titty bars.  So what else is there to do in the evenings while I'm at a training event all week?

Did you fall back?

I didn't.  Oops.  At least it gave me an extra hour, instead of taking one from me.

Deactivated my facebook account yesterday.  I realized that I spent more time arguing politics with my psycho liberal relatives than I did connecting with friends.  That's not relaxing, fun, or enjoyable.  So, good-bye.  And my relatives, none of which I like very much anyways, can all go fuck off.

I know that's not the greatest sentiment to offer on a Sunday.  But there is only so many lies you can stomach hearing before you simply say enough.  I don't have the time or the energy to constantly correct an old hippy who still thinks I'm a 13 year old kid.

Instapundit asks:

After talking about the New Jersey Senator who stiffed two Dominican hookers....

"And what is it about corrupt members of Congress and the Dominican Republic?"

Well, let's see here.  It's a beautiful place.  Really.  The people can be very friendly.  You can get most of what you want dirt cheap, when you're not on the exclusive resorts.

And the locals will do damn near anything for you when you drive out of Casa de Campo and start waving cash around.

And the girls either look like they fell out of the ugly tree, or they're absolute goddesses.  There's not too many in-between.

Lack of time

You had me at the byline.

Which would be:

Prez shows utter lack of integrity, leadership


That the Obama administration views the murders in Benghazi through the prism of crime rather than the prism of war should come as no surprise. After all, this is the same administration that coined the euphemism “man-made disasters” to refer to acts of terrorism; it is the same administration that characterized the Fort Hood massacre not as an example of ideologically motivated Islamic jihad but as just another incidence of “workplace violence.” Those events provided important clues as to this president’s guiding philosophy. But Benghazi demonstrates the dangerous geo-political consequences of such a world-view.

Benghazi raises serious questions about the president’s competence, integrity, and honesty. And it reveals more clearly than ever before Obama’s reflexive impulse to blame, rather than defend, America.

This is what they think



Taken from an acquaintance's facebook post.  This is what they think, this is who they are.  You cannot reason with people who are so fucking ignorant and desperate to believe the worst about you.

You cannot debate with someone who thinks like this.  Their brains are shut down, and running on auto-pilot, fueled by the Obama Kool-Aide and sustained by the sheer hatred they have for anyone who dares blaspheme their God, Lord and Savior.








Horry Clap v2.0

My local paper endorsed Mitt Romney today.  In the heart of the San Fernando Valley, aka "Obama's Pocketbook".

Wow.

Horry Clap

This is just a brutal take-down of the Lena Dumham commercial:



Heh!  Also, Ouch!

The NHL is cancelling games

Morons.

Outta sight, outta mind.  The longer the games stay off TV and out of the papers, the less people will care. And as much as I love hockey, it's only the 4th most watched sport in the USA.

So guess what's going to happen when people turn on their TV and don't see any games on except Gangsterball Thugball basketball during the winter?

Yeah.  Good luck getting your audience back, you morons.

Friday, October 26, 2012

OK, this is funny!

I laughed out loud at this one:



Crowder, you magnificent bastard!  I saw your video!

"This is about Honor, Integrity and Justice"

Three things that Obama shits on daily, by the way.


If the video doesn't post, as it doesn't seem to be doing, you can follow this link.

What do you use YOUR bayonet for?

Got started in a discussion on Facebook about the Marxist Messiah's comment about bayonets and horses.

So, what do you use YOUR bayonet for?  Or what have you used it for?  I've used it as a tent-stake, a marshmallow roasting stick and a stake-carving knife.  Well, and I've practiced killing people with it. 

What about you?

Blerg

Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday.  14 hour days are a bear.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I didn't watch the debate last night

I had other things to do that took up my time.  But I sat down after I got home, and started pulling up the reviews, and watching whatever clips of video were already out.

All I can say is that Obama came across as a snotty, whiny, petulant bitch.

Monday, October 22, 2012

Stayed up way to late last night

Not much sleep at all.  But we were sending a fellow off; a well-liked and respected fellow, so the lack of sleep and the late bedtime were in order.

I'm paying for it right now though.

I has a goodie

Picked up a Roland electric drum kit today.  Now I can practice without blasting the Ragin' Mrs. and the Ragin' mutts out of the house.

Best part - got it used, in good condition, and about half of what it cost brand new.

My office-mates make a paranoid schizophrenic look calm and stable.

Can't Find My Way Home

There's been too many times recently when I've had this song running through my head. 



Today wasn't one of those days, which makes it a rarity right now.

Oh, this is awesome!

Iron worker hangs Romney banner on the Sears Tower.

That.  Friggin'.  Rocks.

Hello, Chicago!

Tonight's Debate

Candy Crowley should have been wearing an "Obama For America" t-shirt on stage.  At least it would have been an honest representation of what a shameless whore she is for him.  I think the memo went out to SAVE OBAMA, and she, being the good little kool-aide guzzling myrmidon that she is, obeyed perfectly.

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Interesting theory

Did Clinton screw Obama by taking responsibility for Benghazi?

I think there's a case to be made that no matter what Clinton did, Obama had fucked up so badly that it was going to look bad for him.

And from Protein Wisdom, here's Something To Chew On.

According to her, Barack Obama, wanting an “October Surprise,” had secretly arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood for a kidnapping of our ambassador.  Then sometime in October before the election Obama was to orchestrate some great military action to rescue Ambassador Stevens, causing all of America to cheer Obama’s strong foreign policy and bravery and making him look like a hero. After all, his supposed killing of Osama Bin Laden bounce had long since faded. Thus, sweeping him to victory in November. Imagine the headlines and talking points. The election would be a lock.

The Muslim Brotherhood has every reason to want Obama re-elected in November and have an American President sympathetic to their causes. Not to mention an administration filled with Muslim appeasers. Therefore, they agreed to aid in these theatrics.

Unfortunately for Ambassador Stevens and three others, the Brotherhood could not control the “hired thugs” that were to perform the kidnapping and things escalated and four American lives were lost.
Apparently the two former Navy SEALs who were in Benghazi threw a monkey wrench into the gig.

And how sad is it, that even if this is completely false, the "leadership" of this country is so pathetic, twisted, and evil that this kind of talk is even plausible?

October is the Month of the Rosary

Officially the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  So, in that vein....



Those folks who want to know how to pray the Rosary, as many modern Catholics are sadly unaccustomed to the Rosary, or praying in general try here:  How to pray the Rosary.

The Rosary isn't just a string of beads.  It's a weapon against evil.  And it doesn't take much time to use it.

What have I here?


I have two coins.  They both have the Gadsden motto on the front and "Enemy of the State" on the back.

I only really NEED one of them.

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Oh my....

Gaffetastic Joe Biden, the dumbest piece of shit to ever come out of Delaware, just challenged Paul Ryan on economics.

This oughta be good!

OH DAMN!  "I think the Vice President knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the way you mean."

BOOM!

18:44 - Biden is desperate - he keeps interrupting Ryan with every sentence.  Ryan can't get a statement out without Biden interrupting him.

Biden acts pissed off.  His handlers obviously told him to get "aggressive".

1902 - I don't think that Paul Ryan was ready for the two minute limit.  Although, it would be fair to say that the two minutes would be a lot longer if Biden the fuckstick didn't keep interrupting.

1907 - this debate moderator would go under the table and give Joe Biden a blow-job if the cameras weren't running.  Hell, she still might.

19:11 -  One phrase that Ryan could use to just destroy Biden's outbursts:  "So how's that working out for you?"

19:16 - Biden just announced that "you don't go through the UN"  What world is he living in?  I'm crocked right now, by the way.  If it weren't for spellcheck, I'd be hosed.

19:21 - Biden says that his religion defines who he is.  What a fucking CROCK OF SHIT!

I'm going to have to call this debate a draw - Biden had his talking points well rehearsed, and they were the progressive, anti-American left talking points.  Ryan spent more time trying to debate policy, and Biden kept interrupting him.  Biden stuck with his strong points - brainless, bumper-sticker logo bullshit.    Ryan kept trying to bring it back to policy, and Biden "D-O-G spells Dog!" avoided anything that might require complex thought.

I wish Ryan would have done better.  But when Obama lays out the gutless fucking performance, Biden only has to be half-competent to salvage the day.  I wish the Paul Ryan to eviscerated Obama in the Obamacare debates had shown up.

UPDATE:  Seems I might have been a bit pessimistic.

Fiscal Policy Report Card

For the various States.

For what it's worth, no Donk got an "A", and no Republican got an "F".  But anyone who's been paying attention knows that Democrat policies are not fiscally responsible.

My home state, Idaho, got a B.  So did Wisconsin.  Governor Moonbeam of California only got a "D", and considering how FUCKED UP California is you really have to question how bad all the "F" cards are, which include the Selected-not-Elected Governor of Washington, Christine Gregoire.

The Seven Habits of Highly Frugal People

News you can use.

The Ragin' Mrs. and I follow most of these rules.  Our problem was that before we started following these rules, we got ourselves into quite a bit of debt, and we're working our asses off to get rid of that debt.  It's a long, slow grind, but we're working our way out of that debt.

The pay cut we took when I went active duty didn't help either.  Still, there are things we can look at and say "Yes, we're doing what we need to do."  The ten acres of land that's free and paid off was a huge step for us.

Know what I did yesterday?

Not a damn thing.  And it felt good.

Photo Time!

So, I had some spare time on my hands, inbetween going to Mass, church picnic (the Ragin' Mrs. made her pulled pork), picking out the newest member of the Ragin' household and trying out a new cigar.  So, what to do, what to do.....

!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howzabout a political rally of Conservative thought?  In Los Angeles?  HELL YES!  The Ragin' Mrs. and I drove down, where we were greeted by a line of Gadsden Flags, Old Glory in all her various iterations, and plenty of patriots to go around.  I snapped a few shots of signs I liked.  Click on the photos to get the bigger versions, although I had to size them down for the blog:

When I drove by this lady I honked like mad, with my $5.00 per gallon expenditure.  


There was a decent crowd on hand.  I don't guess numbers very well, but there were at least a thousand people either sitting, standing or walking around.


We got there a little late, and Alphonzo Rachel was already speaking:



 He's just as inspiring live as he is recorded.  There were a quite a few local speakers, and then Ben Shapiro got on stage:


 I loved this woman's shirt so much I had to ask to take a photo of it:


 Finally, the man I had come to see speak:  BILL WHITTLE!




The last speaker of the afternoon was Dennis Prager:



Alphonzo Rachel waiting for Madison Rising:


The Mrs. and I had to retire home, in part because we had our new addition with us and he was getting a bit tuckered out from all the people.  But it was a good event.  I met a few folks who I will be contacting later, and it was nice to see that all of California ain't brain dead.  Hopefully I'll be able to go to a few more of events like this.

Woke up at 0430

To take a piss.  Let the dog out.  Went back to bed, laid awake for an hour, and decided "Fuck it, I'm up."

That's kind of been the story of my life here in SoCal.  I don't think I've slept through the night more than a handful of times.  It's starting to piss me off.

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Hey, you know that song....

California Girls?

I wish they all could be California Giiiiiiiiiiiiiiirls.......

Yeah, not so much.  Stretched out skin and a crappy facelift on a middle-aged jogging woman isn't attractive at all.

Gonna go visit some family today

If I manage not to get thrown out of their house, I'll be doing good.  Liberals, ya see.  Obama voters.  The Ragin' Mrs. has specifically forbidden me to talk politics.  I was going to avoid the subject anyways, but the Queen has now issued her decree, and that makes it twice as important.

Friday, October 05, 2012

Post like this

Make me miss home so badly it hurts.

I think part of my problem is the fact that the Army has plopped me right in the middle of a city.  I can live in the city.  Hell, I met the Ragin' Mrs. while I lived in downtown Seattle.  But I go to bed with the noise of cars and sirens and all the other assorted noise that a city makes, and I wake up to it.  I work in it.  I drive in it, and I'm sitting here in my back yard smoking a cigar and typing while thousands of people drive by on the road just on the other side of my fence.

And meanwhile, I know that there's ten acres of land in Idaho just waiting for me to build a porch on a house, and sit there while I listen to the owls hoot at night.  Smoking my cigar, of course. 

You want to know what it was like at my childhood home?  Go look at the photos in the link.  We didn't have chickens or cows, but I did raise pigs, and we had our own garden.  And once I retire from this life, I'll have it again.

My new phrase for the Liberal Media

They Butt-Chug the Obama Kool-Aide.

Mmmmmm, Obama-Aide!  Straight up the ass, so it doesn't get filtered by their stomachs or anything unnecessary like that!

To the Fat Ass on the Crotch-Rocket

I applaud your decision to wear a full-face helmet, and I'd like to congratulate you for being so mindful about your head.  Unfortunately, the fact that you were wearing nothing but a t-shirt, shorts and tennis shoes means that when the slack-jawed fuckwit Hyundai driver sideswipes you, the rest of your body is going to look more like ground meat rather than anything remotely human after your skin has been removed by the pavement.  Luckily for your family, your use of a full-face helmet means that they can still have an open casket funeral for you. 

Again, congratulations for using a helmet!

To the Hyundai driver

on 210, who decided that not only are turn signals not necessary, but that looking to see if the road is clear doesn't need to happen either:

Had I been driving my old truck instead of riding my motorcycle, I wouldn't have yielded the road.  I would have let you hit me, spun you into the wall, and drove away laughing at your dumb ass.  As it is, I do hope you could lip-read what I was saying in your rear-view mirror, because I meant every word of it, especially the part about you having a tiny dick and an even smaller brain.  Maybe if you pulled your head out of your ass you'd be able to drive like a normal human being instead of a slack-jawed fuckwit.

How many lies

Will Obama spew out in tonight's debate?

Just about every fucking line he utters, I'd say.

UPDATE:  Wow....  Romney has laid into Obama a couple of times, and damn hard.  Thank goodness.  I was afraid he wouldn't swing when he had the chance.

Update 2:  Obama must think that only teachers are unemployed, because that's all he's mentioning.

Update to the Update:  I feel a hell of a lot better about Mitt Romney after tonight.  He took Obama to the woodshed and exposed him for the empty, pathetic piece of brainless shit that he is.  Obama was physically begging for his TelePromTer after about twenty minutes.  "Uh, uh, uh, well, Mitt Romney wants to kill uh, uh, old women and uh, uh, uh, children!"

I hope the next two debates are like this.

Long Day

And I'm friggin' wiped.  I think this is going to be a re-occurring theme for the next few years.  It's not that the work is hard, is that I'm fighting HQ just do be able to do my job.  Dysfunctional would be the BEST that I can hope for.  The political backstabbing that goes on at the upper levels is unbelievable, and it paralyzes a lot of people from doing more than covering their own asses.

And here I come, pissed off from the start, and not really willing to deal with the bullshit that people are spewing.  I've already pissed folks off.  Too bad, I've stuck by the regulation, and I've kept my integrity.  There's not a damn thing they can do to me, and I have the support of plenty of other people.  I could get fired from this job, and I'll have plenty of places to go.

I might come out of this bloody, but by god, I'm sure as hell going to make sure that my harriers get it worse than I do.  And I just might improve the Army by doing so.

Had a weird dream last night

I was swimming from Wisconsin to New York.  No, I can't remember why.  Most the times I don't even dream, and if I do dream then I can't remember it, so the fact that I actually remember this dream means it was stuck in my mind for some reason.

So anyways, there I was, swimming from Wisconsin to New York, when I decide to get out of the water at this one boat dock/general store place.  And I go in to get something to eat, and maybe hitch a ride up a river, when I realize that I don't have any money because my wallet is soaked.  So I see these old ladies hunting for a piece of a lamp or some wire-made thing, and I find the piece they're looking for, and tell 'em that they can have it if they give me a ride because I've been swimming for a thousand miles and would like a brief rest.  And they look at me like I'm lying to them, and say "We don't want it that bad" and walk off.  So I go back into the water and start swimming again.

Maybe the little test of homebrew I sampled while I was bottling is more potent than I thought.

Homebrew

The first batch of honey and orange cyser is primed and bottled.  Given the way this stuff started fermenting quickly, I'm willing to bet that it'll be carbonated within a week.  We'll see how it tastes next Friday.

Yes, it was a terrorist attack

The Obama administration, to include Obama himself, have lied for days on end before they were forced to tell the truth:  Libya was a terrorist attack.

And the media knows that line is harmful to Obama, so it's doing it's best to bury it:



Don't let the anti-American bastards get away with their silence.

Toxic leadership

Can take many forms.  I worked under an abusive, toxic bully for three years, and he was the absolute worst leader I can say I have ever worked with or for.  Not a single person on the team ever wanted to even speak with him again.  People in our building didn't want to deal with him.  He was the worst.

This this current crop is running second.

Games

I hate office games.

I hate office politics.

I hate people at HQ who play office political games.

Guess who's coming to visit tomorrow?





FUCK!

My heart pumps purple piss for him

Goat-fucking terrorist Nidal Hasan is hospitalized.

You know what this means, don't you?

That means there isn't much time for the Army to take me up on my offer for me to fly down to San Antonio, on my own dime, and shoot that fucking pedophile worshiping traitor right between the eyes.  I'll use my gun and my ammo.  The Army wouldn't have to pay for a thing.  Just let me look that fucker in the eyes, tell him "Enjoy being ass-fucked by Satan, you worthless piece of shit" and blow his fucking brains out against the wall.  Then I'd stuff the empty cavity with lard and ham, right before I dumped his body at a pig farm and let his entire corpse be turned into stinking pig shit.

It can only be an improvement over his current state.

Earworm

I've had this song kicking through my head the past couple of weeks:

Obama Voters



These people vote.  Weep for our country.

If Obama was a Republican

He'd have been impeached by now, with the media rolling out story after story about his incompetence, arrogance, lawlessness and complete disregard for the Constitution of the United States.

But he's a Democrat, so the media is on his side.  Duh.

And see what LA has to offer.  There's a market down there that should be rather nice.

Worldview: changed

The step-son no longer resides in the Ragin' household.

The bottom line is that I refuse to subsidize anyone's poor behavior, especially when they have every opportunity to succeed handed to them on a platter and they instead choose to lay flat on their ass 24/7 and then verbally assault the people who allow him to live his nice comfortable lifestyle.

He thought he was untouchable, and he thought he could get away with his sheer disrespect and abuse.  Now he knows differently.  And as he sits in his train seat, headed to yet another family member's house, I hope he figures out exactly why he has been removed from my home.  But in the end he has to accept his flaws in order to correct them, and I don't see that happening any time soon. 

Some people have to hit rock bottom before they ever figure it out.  Maybe that's him.  Maybe he'll hit rock bottom and stay there, I don't know.  But he will never yell at my wife in my house ever again.  Buh bye there, Spanky.  Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

Remember, you subject you - it's not the United States of America anymore, it's the Obama States of Obama.

Gawd, what a narcissistic prick.

The 47%



I don't have to worry about putting gas in my car!  I don't have to worry about paying my mortgage!



The 47%!!!!!  Yay!

Change comin'

On the home front.  Lots of crap going on right now.  Hopefully things will settle down by tomorrow night.

SQUIRREL!

You know that scene from the movie "Up", where they're fighting on the blimp, and the dogs are in bi-planes shooting everything in sight, and the kid yells "SQUIRREL!" and the dogs spaz out and end up dropping like rocks?



This is my office.  My co-workers are the dogs.  HQ and various other sundry people are the kid yelling the distraction.  And I'm trying to figure out just how the hell I'm going to sort everything and everyONE out, without killing someone of higher rank and thus voiding my career, while at the same time fulfilling my mission.

Dammit.

Cyser

The neighbor's tree is loaded with oranges.  He told me, and I quote, "Take 'em all down if you want 'em.  Better than them rotting on the tree."

So I did.  And since I can't drink a gallon and a half of fresh-squeezed OJ all at once, I decided to brew with it.  Orange-honey Cyser, with cardamom and star anise.  It's bubbling away in the carboy right now.  I should have tasty brewed goodness around All Hallow's Eve, if everything goes well.

Who's team won yesterday?

MY team won yesterday!

GO SEAHAWKS!

Hey, I gotta get them bragging rights in while I can, alright?  Whaddya want?  Decorum?  Have you read my blog?

The Best and Worst part

about posting conservative links on facebook is how my extended family reacts to them.  My extremely liberal extended family.  My Obama-loving, openly socialist extended family.

This morning isn't any different.

Balls the size of church bells

Lessee here...

Bookmarking the Koran with raw bacon?  Check.

Burning the pages after you read them and tear them out?  Check.

Telling the anti-Free Speech government to suck it?  Check.

That's.  Friggin'.  Awesome.



By the way, for those who think Miss Barnhardt is using a tad too much hyperbole, take a gander at "Tea Boys" in Islamic culture.  NAMBLA is trying to find a way right now to copy what Islam does on a daily basis.

Enjoy your drive!

Just don't ask how you're going to pay for it!

I can remember when the Democrats were screaming about how Bush the fat-cat oil man was making his Big Oil buddies rich.  What's their excuse now that Obama is in office?  Oh, right, they're too busy slurping at Obama's crotch to care.

More Obama Failure

Protesters storm the US Embassy in Yemen.

Looks like plenty of targets of opportunity to me.  And it's just another highlight of how badly Obama has fucked up our foreign policy, and how badly he's fucked over our friends while groveling before our enemies.

The weak horse, and all that rot.

Another Obama Failure

Been watching the news about the attacks in Libya and Egypt.  My immediate solution?  Pull all friendly forces out of those countries now and carpet bomb them back to the Stone Age.

Well, farther back anyways.

But as usual, the Democrat Propaganda Organ known as the national media is more concerned about a statement made by Mitt Romney than with the actual attacks and the causes leading up to them.  They're more concerned about covering up Obama's foreign policy failure than actually reporting what happened.

Yet another reason why I wouldn't cry one single tear if every media branch ceased to exist tomorrow.

Destroy the Publik Skool Sistim

Exhibit A:  The Chicago Publik Skool Sistim teechers walked out today.  The average Chicago Publik Skool Teecher makes 161% of what the average Chicagoan makes in a year.  AND, the Publik Skool Teechers rejected a 16% raise.  Not "enough", you see.

Fuck them all.  Fuck them all to hell.  Fire.  Them.  All.  Fire them and replace them with real teachers, who actually give a shit about the students in their classrooms.

Moar Whittle!




Your daily depressing post

Of combat deaths in Afghanistan.  Let me boil it down for you:

Eight years of war-mongering Chimpy McHitlerBurton:  631.

Four years of peace-loving Lightworker, the Glorious Leader Obama:  1484.

Yes Virginia, experience DOES count, no matter what the Democrat press told you.

Update and Question:  My uncle seems to think that this post is over the top, "disrespectful to my fallen comrades" and needs to be deleted.  What say you?

Crash

We just had a motorcycle t-bone a car outside our house.  The motorcycle was going straight, while the car was attempting to make a left-hand turn into a busy intersection.

The car is at fault for attempting the turn, which required him to cut across three lanes of oncoming traffic and make a sharp left into his lane.  But who's a fault doesn't help the rider, who is currently on the way to the hospital.  Luckily, he was wearing full protective gear so he should make it out OK, but his bike is toast and he's got a hefty hospital bill coming up.

Folks, if you ride, and yes I ride as well, you have to ride as if everyone else on the road is trying to kill youAll it takes is one guy not paying attention and trying to take a short cut for you to be in big trouble.  Do not assume anything.  Do not think that someone will see you.  Do not ride as if people on the road give a shit about you.  They are trying to kill you, period, that's all you need to remember. 

That's how you stay alive on a motorcycle.

Fumble fingers

I'm blogging from my tablet right now, which means my typing is less than perfect.  Please forgive any mistakes.

Speed demon

My rental car is a Nissan Versa.  If the previous renters had not beat the hell out of it, it would be a hot little ride.

Be Still


Every now and then, when you're lost in thought....  say, while driving through a thunderstorm in the middle of South Dakota in what SHOULD be mid-day light, and your little Suzuki is straining to keep up with your wife's much larger, stronger vehicle, and you're worried about the move, and how much it costs, and the new position, and, and, and.....

You hear that voice, and it simply says "Be Still, and know that I am God."

Followed by one of my favorites - "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

 And yes, that's the Ragin' Mrs' vehicle ahead of me.  Her beast was pulling more weight than my vehicle weighs in total and she could still outpace me any time she wanted to.  But my scoot is a rag-top, which we love here in CA.  And I get about twice the gas mileage.  There's a price to be had for that power.

Blog stuff

Updated the blogroll a bit.  Got rid of some who hadn't posted for a while, added a few that I had in my personal blog folder.  There will be more coming as I see fit.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Outbound edition

"It’s interesting what happens when everyone begins to realize that a tyrant is on his way out. There’s a sense permission to stop pretending that everything is okay."

 !!!!

From my personal experience, the Military troops who support Obama are the same kool-aide guzzling, skin-color fixated idiots who would support him even if he was caught killing kittens while having sex with four year old boys.  You're never going to reach those folks.  But the sane people?  We're looking forward to November as the end of a huge error, and hoping we can undo the damage before it's too late.

Another day of unpacking

We're down to the slow part now, where we open up boxes, look inside and say "Well crap, where does this go?"  Add in the fact that we've gone from our own house with plenty of storage and a basement to a house with no basement, no porches, less storage and a much smaller yard.  We downsized before we left, and we'll be downsizing again before we make everything fit.

On the other hand, we have a pool.  Which rocks when the temps are in the triple digits, and all you want to do is cool off.
