The enemy of my enemy?

Richard Dawkins kicks the hornet's nest




Here's the rub - he's correct, and despite the usual hyperventilation from the Religion of Perpetual Outrage, facts are not racist or bigoted.

I enjoy watching heads pop over this, I admit.

Each and every one...

of these idiots ought to have their voting rights repealed forever.

Period.

Stupid f*ckers.

I wonder if...

... all of these pro-illegal immigration advocates would mind if the illegals they are championing were to come and live in their living rooms. Eating their food, drinking their water, using their utilities, all the rest. No rent, no explanation, maybe chip in the occasional $20 (while sending anything they actually earn back to their families in whichever country they came from)...

They'd be okay with that, right? No choice in the matter, and someone to call them "racist" when they so much as sighed in frustration.

That's what they are demanding of the rest of us, after all.

No one I have ever spoken with on the matter has EVER been for "no immigration at all". Our country was founded on the concept of "Give us your huddled masses, yearning to breath free", and there is room enough for everyone who wants to share in the dream of creating a better future for their kids. But that does not mean we don't have the right - not to mention the duty and responsibility - to make sure we know who is visiting, and who is planning on staying. And the bias of the government MUST be towards those who are living within the rules, with increasing levels of disincentive for those who choose to violate them as a condition of entering.

Just sign the damned guest book on the way in the front door, instead of breaking in through the basement window and leeching off the rest of us. And learn the damned language, just as I would have to do if I were to move to whichever shithole you are deserting.

Calling an illegal immigrant an "undocumented resident" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

Bug Out Bags

I just read some damn good advice regarding a bug-out bag.  Given that this country is so huge, and I doubt there's two people who read this blog that face the same conditions in an emergency or natural disaster, this person's comment over at Rural Revolution made me want to repost it, both for it's insight and it's simplicity.

In the past, I heard a wilderness survivalist refer to what he call the "Five Cs" for basic survival.
They are:
1. A cutter. Some sort of a bladed instrument or multi tool.
2. A container. Something to hold your survival equipment and also serve as a water container and cooking implement.
3. A combustible. Some instrument that can be used to start fires.
4. A cover. Small tarp or poncho to provide shelter.
5. Cordage. A ball of heavy twine or 550 cord covers more uses than can be covered in just a few sentences.
You can pack these few very useful items with minimal weight and then expand your B.O.B. as circumstances dictate.

That's good advice right there.

Obama is Putin's Bitch

So I see in the news that the Great Marxist Messiah, he of the "Smart Diplomacy", isn't going to have a face-to-face meeting with Russia's Putin.  That's probably a good idea, given that any photo of the two of them together simply reinforces the point that Obama is nothing more than Putin's bitch on the international stage.  Hell, even before Obama basically told the Russian President over a hot mic that once he got re-elected he'd get America bent over and spread-eagle for a good ass-raping, Putin knew that Obama was nothing but a spineless little bitch and acted accordingly.  So when Edward Snowden hauled ass to Moscow, do you think for one moment that Putin was going to turn him over to America?

Fuck no.  Obama the sniveling pussy is Putin's bitch, everybody knows it, and everybody knew what would happen:  Putin would make Obama twist in the wind, and then tell him to piss up a rope.  And yep, that's pretty much what happened.

Congratulations, Democrats.  Your Lord, God and Savior is every bit the craven piece of shit we said he was, and now America is the international laughingstock.  I hope you're happy.

I came home from work

with my stomach twisted in knots and wanting to vomit.  I don't think this unit could be more fucked up if it actually tried to self-implode.

The worst part?  I'm one of the lowest ranking people in the unit.  My sphere of influence is tiny, and my hands only go up so high.

This is why God invented Whiskey.  I only hope I can finish out my tour without strangling someone.

Playing catch-up

This weekend was overtaken by homework.  After a week and a half away from home and office, there's a crapload of work to be done, and I'm not half through with it yet.

In the meantime, I see that Jimmeh Cah-duh the Second has flushed American influence down the shitter in Egypt

Actually, I take that back.  Calling Obama Jimmy Carter the Second does a great disservice to Jimmy Carter.

I honestly think the first thing I would do to an Egyptian if I could would be to apologize, and let them know that I didn't vote for that simpering, spineless, weak-minded fucking jackass shithead currently infecting the Oval Office.
