The Power Of A Dog

For Sondra.

The Power of the Dog
by
Rudyard Kipling


There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passsion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart to a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-term loan is as bad as a long--
So why in--Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear? 


I stole the idea from Og.  It seems fitting.

Meh?

Sleeping.  Maybe blog later.

Dear Smokers

If you voted for Romney, then I'm very sorry that you'll have to now deal with Obamacare and it's ever-expanding costs.

If you're a smoker who voted for Obama, then FUCK YOU and PAY UP, BITCHES

Raining

No running for me this morning.

Oh, it's not the rain that keeps me indoors.  It's the fact that I'm in the middle of an urban area where the drivers may or may not have a clue as to how to drive in the first place (guess which side I'm taking on that!), and the sound of tires sliding on wet pavement going on outside my door makes me NOT want to go jogging when some texting dipshit decides to leave his hands off the wheel long enough to hop out of the road and turn the sidewalk I'm running on into a bumper-cars pavilion.

Rain doesn't scare me.  Getting smooshed while Pedro the texting jackass sends out his 100th "LOL!!!11!" of the day would really, REALLY put a crimp into my plans for the weekend.

Dave Want

New stock for the Mosin-Nagant.

DAVE WANT!

Of course, it costs more than the rifle cost me originally, but still.....

Women in Combat?

I was at work when I heard this load of crap:

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is ending the military’s ban on women serving in combat.

The move could open up more than 230,000 jobs that had been previously closed to women by overturning a 1994 ban on female servicemembers in small combat units.
This pretty much confirms that Leon Panetta is nothing more than a Leftist douche-tool who's main goal has been to allow the beginning of the destruction of the military.

Here's an idea!  Open up every single job in the military to women, but do away with the female standards for the Army Physical Fitness Test.  See how that flies, eh?

Look, men and women are different physically, alright?  There's no denying it.  When I did my short tour in Afghanistan, I wore a total of 62 pounds of gear, weapon and ammo.  And I had one of the lightest loads by far.  Most Infantry carry 100+ pounds of gear and ammo.  It is not uncommon for folks in the combat arms to carry 130 to 150 pounds of gear, ammo and weapons systems.  Do you really think the average woman is going to be able to do that?  Without seriously degrading the combat effectiveness of the unit?

Hell, I saw it in action when I was an MP.  "Dave, you need to carry the gun.  PVT Female can't carry it.  Dave, you need to load the fuel and water.  PVT Female can't carry the weight.  Dave, you need to get the ammo to the truck.  PVT Female can't carry the weight."

I have seen what the military is going to, and IT DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!

DOES!  NOT!  WORK!

I really can't wait until I can retire.

You wanna know what they think of you?

Watch this entire clip, but pay attention to the last five seconds.

Fucking god-damned fascists.

If a picture is worth a thousand words

Then what, exactly, is video worth?  Because I can't think of anything that shows just what a classless fucking cunt Moochell Obama is.

Yeah, I said it.  Classless.  Fucking.  Cunt.  Welcome to four more years!

So here it is

The second coronation of the Marxist Messiah, the Communist Christ, the Teleprompter Jesus, the Left's Lord, God, Savior and King, Barack Hussein Obama the Nazi.

Four more years of Obama the Nazi and his fascist regime.  The damage that will be done to this country will be impossible to correct or fix.  We are essentially watching the downfall of our Weimar Republic and the raising of our Adolph Hitler.  And as pissed off as I am that Obama the pissy-pants tyrant is once again going to infest the Oval Office for another four years (at least), I'm even more pissed off at the country who elected him.

That's right, I'm furious that this country is so full of whiny, sniveling, spineless, gutless parasites.  The Parasite class is now firmly in control, and the productive class is in decline.  And sorry, but there's no way to reverse that.  We've passed the event horizon.  The only thing we have to look forward to is further decline into a failed socialist state.  And I'm pissed.

Right now, my only goal is to make sure that 'Me and Mine" are taken care of.  My answer to every beg for charity is going to be a question:  "Who did you vote for?".  Voted for that god-damned Nazi piece of shit Obama?  Then FUCK YOU, die screaming.  If you voted for that god-damned Nazi Obama, then I wouldn't piss in your mouth if your teeth were on fire.  Fuck off and die screaming.

This country has decided to pay for all their "free" bullshit by making my generation pay.  And the next generation.  And the next.  And the next.  And the next.  There is no way that any one generation can wipe out the debt that this country has just voted for.  There is no way they can pay for it all.  And so they've enslaved countless numbers of unborn children who will spend their lives paying for the socialist pipedreams of this country.

Ask Greece how that's working out.  Ask Spain.

I'm going to spend the day making various foodstuffs and drinking booze, and keeping myself away from polite company, because every time I see or hear that god-damned Nazi fuckhead's voice I'm going to mutter things that are best kept away from women and small children.

A nation of Beta males has re-elected the ultimate Beta male to lead rule them.  (fixed by Gerry N.)
