Once again

Proving that Sarah Palin was and is still more qualified to be President than Barack Obama.

After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.

We have three more years of the Obama Horror Show, watching the world burn while Obama fiddles.

25 Signs You've Grown Up

Stolen from here.  List is below, with my comments.

1. Your potted plants are alive. And you can’t smoke a one of them.  (Never did smoke my potted plants)
2. Having sex in a twin-sized bed is absurd.  (Posh.  Have sex where ever you can)
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.  (Crap)
4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to sleep.  (Crap!)
5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.  (Crap crap!)
6. You carry an umbrella. You watch the Weather Channel.  (Nope.  I look outside)
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hookup and breakup.  (CRAP!)
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 7.  (Um.....  crap.)
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as ‘dressed up.’  (Nope, they still do!)
10. You’re the one calling the police because those darn kids next door don’t know how to turn down the stereo.  (CRAPPITY CRAP!)

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.  (Ewwwwww......  crap.)
12. You don’t know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.  (Taco Bell closes?)
13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.  (Yeeeeaaaaah....  crap.)
14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald’s.  (Blue Wilderness, actually.  Wait.  Crap.)
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.  (Nope, I have a rockin' couch.)
16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 p.m.  (Zzzzzz....  CRAP!)
17. Dinner and a movie = The whole date instead of the beginning of one.  (Dinner AND a movie?  Crap!)
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 a.m. would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.  (Cra...  *ralph*  ap.)
19. You go to the drugstore for Ibuprofen and antacids, not condoms and pregnancy test kits.  (And Tiger Balm.  CRAP!)
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer ‘pretty good stuff.’  (I do home vinting.  HA!)
21. You actually eat breakfast foods at breakfast time.  (Define "breakfast", because Bacon is for every meal....)
22. “I just can’t drink the way I used to,” replaces “I’m never going to drink that much again.”  (Hell, I said that back in my 20's.  Aww, crap)
23. Over 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.  (CRAAAAAAP!)
24. You don’t drink at home to save money before going to a bar.  (I don't really go to bars.  Never did.  Just my thing.)
25. You read this entire list looking for one sign that doesn’t apply to you! 

I guess I'm not all the way grown up yet!  Yay me!

Bill Whittle time



As an aside, I'd really, REALLY love a chance to visit the PJTV studios, given that I'm actually in the area.

When I first heard...

...the audio of Dingy Harry Reid standing on the Senate Floor and claiming that all the bad stories about Obamacare were a bunch of lies made up by the Koch, I almost drove off the road.



I just really don't know what to say in the face of that kind of evil.

Yes, I said it.  Evil.  Smearing the victims of the legislation that you passed by a legislative loophole as "liars" is evil.  Disregarding the claims of the people who have been damaged by the legislation you have passed through trickery and deceit as "liars" is evil.  Lying to get a massive bill passed, and then calling all the people injured by that bill "liars" is EVIL.

Harry Reid is a perfect spokeshole for the Democrats; vain, petty, corrupt, greedy, lying, and evil.

And those are his good qualities.


I'd meant to post this yesterday.  Got caught up in stuff.

The M4/M16 debate rears it's ugly head again

I can't say I like the M4 or the M16.  I don't.  There are a lot of reasons for that.  Many of those reasons are detailed here.  However, the one huge problem that the gun has, and I've gone over this multiple times, is that it's a gas-operated system.  The gasses from the expended round are fed back into the bolt to push it back and cycle the feeding operation.

The gun shits where it eats.

That's bad.

What's good is that you can fix that problem without having to buy a whole new weapons system.  Replace the gas tube with a gas piston, which keeps all the carbon and crap and heat out of the chamber.  Will it cost a bunch to refit all the rifles and carbines in the US military?  Yes.  But not nearly as much as buying all new guns.

So, let me state once again...

If X is an unknown quantity, and a spurt is a drip of water under pressure, then an expert is an unknown drip under pressure.

Read this list of seven foods that used to be bad for you.

1.  Coconut oil:  never really used it, and to be blunt, I never really heard anything about it until now, but let's just lay out for the point of argument that the "experts" were wrong about it. 

2.  Coffee.  "It'll stunt your growth!  Blah blahblahblah!"  Yeah, whatever.  I've been drinking the stuff since I was 14, and I'm taller than everyone in my family except my brother.  And I won't get into what he did to stunt his growth.

3.  Whole Milk:  At this point, if you're still afraid of a normal amount of fat in your diet, you've been brainwashed by the FDA and various other government entities.

4.  Salt:  The great heart killer, right?  Sodium!  OOOOooooOOOOOOooooooo!  Except that if you exercise regularly, you know you need salt.  When I went to my first Estrella War, the snacks for the fighters involved pickles, pretzels and orange slices.  We wanted to get salt into them, because they've been sweating so much that without the salt they would go into various forms of heat injury, no matter how much water they drank.  You need salt to survive, folks. 

5.  Chocolate:  Dude, if chocolate were that bad for you, entire generations of women would have died off by now.  They did not.  Point made.

6.  Popcorn:  Because the death rate for Americans increased when popcorn was invented?  No it didn't.....  so why consider it bad?

7.  Eggs:  I've spoken about this before.  Eggs are a wonderful source of protein, not to mention that they perform so many different roles in the kitchen that modern cuisine probably wouldn't exist without them.  Let me give you just one example:  Mayonnaise. 

So many government experts have been wrong about food for so long that I'm amazed that anyone actually listens to the crap that spews out of their mouths.  You want to know what foods to eat?  Take a gander at what folks have been doing for centuries.  What did they eat?  You want to know what happened if they didn't eat the foods they needed?  THEY DIED.  You don't see too many vegans in Colonial America, m'kay?

The neighbor's orange tree is in bloom

My entire backyard smells like perfume.  It's a delightful change from the nasty smell this place normally has.  Too bad it can't last all year.

The Publik Skool Sistim

Folks, I wasn't a big fan of the publik skool sistim to begin with.  Common Core just made my distaste for publik skool even worse.  Do please follow that link and watch the video to see examples of how badly our children are being screwed with in their supposed education.

The Publik Skool Sistim in this country is not educating our kids.  The Publik Skool Sistim is teaching our children to be uneducated and ignorant drones.  I honestly believe that the Publik Skool Sistim is designed to provide a permanent slave class to the elites who go to private schools or some other schools that actually teach and educate the children.  A slave class that is incapable of learning anything beyond what they've been fed for twelve years in publik skool.

So, to wit:  After undergoing the indoctrination sessions in your local Publik Skool Sistim, your children will not be able to do math, but they'll know how to masturbate by the fourth grade.  Isn't that all just progressive and stuff?

Imagine a stranger came up to your son on the playground and said: “Hey little boy, if you touch yourself it’ll feel good and tingly. I drew some cartoons of kids masturbating. Wanna see?” What would you do? Would you shake his hand and thank him for the helpful sex ed lesson? Or would you call the cops and see to it that this sicko has to alert the neighbors every time he changes his address?

There is no discernible distinction to be drawn between the creep on the playground and the public school official who approves this kind of material for children. This is child abuse, plain as day.
I would destroy the Department of Education faster than my dog jumps on a dropped piece of steak if I could.
