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."
