Safety is an illusion

"It is a temporary bubble of psychological security created by loving parents to protect children, until they slowly become adult enough to face the reality of a dangerous world."



Bill Whittle is a National Treasure, y'all.

Remember the movie "Dune"?

Loved the book, by the way.  LOVED IT.  The movie was kinda "meh", but that's what happens when you try to pack a book like Dune into an hour-and-a-half movie.

Anyways, in the movie there's this one mantra from a Mentat where he goes off - "It is by Will alone I set my mind in motion"....

Anyways, I'm not a Mentat, nor to I play one one TV, but I do enjoy some good Sci-Fi drama and I'm a caffeine addict like most geeks are, and well..



It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed
The hands acquire shakes
The shakes become a warning
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion



I'm going to print that out and have it pinned to the wall above my desk.  See who recognizes it.

Rule #3: SJWs always PROJECT

Ain't that right, Syd?  Eh?

Go read Trey Gowdy's letter to Elijah Cummings.  I didn't know Sydney Blumenthal had business interests that would allow him to profit from war in Libya, did you?  Huh.  And he was pushing for Hillary Clinton to go to war in Libya.  Gosh, I wonder why?

Hey, remember all those times Republicans have been accused of wanting to go to war in order to make money?

Yeah.

Some folks CAN find reality

Especially when it's thrust into their faces.  Good on 'em.

A Bradford based charity will now only be helping genuine refugees near Syria after they woke up to the fact that those in the Calais “Jungle” camp are almost exclusively fit young men, who are “happy” to be there and not fleeing danger. 
The charity was tired of unwanted donations being left to spoil by the economic migrants.
All of these men running into Europe looking to live off of the welfare states are not "refugees", just like the Mexicans rushing to live in America for free are not "refugees".  At best, they are illegal immigrants.  At worst, they are invaders, and as much as I hate people coming into the USA illegally, at least I can say they have less of a chance of being terrorists than the muslims currently invading Europe.

Well, if it's good enough for the world's oldest woman....

Apparently I must eat eggs, grits and bacon every day.

Every.  Day.  

The world's oldest woman, Susannah Mushatt Jones, swears that she was able to reach her ripe old age of 116 through a consistent diet of eggs, grits and bacon for breakfast. There is even a sign posted on her kitchen that says, "Bacon makes everything better,"

Seriously.  Bacon.  Every day.  It's for your life!

The Sierra Club is full of shit

And you can literally count the number of boilerplate BS "arguments" that come dropping out of Aaron Mair's  mouth like pies out of a cow's ass.  And Ted Cruz rips him a new one.



Anthropogenic Global Warming is a religion, folks.  There is more evidence of the existence of God, than there is evidence of Anthropogenic Global Warming.  The only way people continue to push AGW is through faith and belief in their prophets and messiahs, and they resort to Hare Krishna like mantras which they repeat over and over and over and over in order to deflect facts, logic, reason, and truth.

The cannot explain how Greenland got green when there were no SUVs to blame it on.  They cannot explain the Little Ice Age.  They cannot explain the pause.  All they can do is turn back to repeatedly debunked falsified studies, and then say "The Science is SETTLED!"

Say, what's science say about cholesterol these days, anyways?

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Have you ever Kippled edition

From a commenter at Vox Popoli.

In the Obama bungle we were promised an end to strifewhich started by taking a toke and calling a man your wifeBut though we had plenty of laws there was nothing our laws could stopand the Gods of the Copybook Headings said "it's a long way down from the top"

Most Congresscritters today either never read Kipling, or they can't understand why he wrote what he did.

It's called "Surrender"

World's first Lesbian Bishop calls for church to remove crosses, point way to Mecca.

I just....  I mean, OK, it's not the Catholic Church, but shouldn't a Christian Bishop defend their flock?

Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”.

Well, I'm certain the muslims in Sweden appreciate her surrender.  Now she just needs to wear a burkha like a good infidel and be stoned to death for her homosexuality, and the muslims will be appeased!

I'm certain that'll work out just fine, right?  Right?  Or maybe not.  Maybe, just maybe, a person who claims to be a leader in a Christian church ought to defend their faith against people who would murder you for daring to not bow to their pedophile prophet.  Although an actively lesbian bishop is about as "Christian" as a goat in a mitre, so anything she does or doesn't do really can't be considered out of bounds.

And in other news, the Vatican has fired a bishop who came out as gay.

"I have to say who I am. I am a gay priest. I am a happy and proud gay priest," 

No, you are not.  You are not a priest, anymore than a man cheating on his wife is a "husband".  Your boyfriend with whom you violate your vows of celibacy on a daily basis is not your "husband" either.

Look folks, if I cheated on my wife, if I was unfaithful, if I broke the vows of chastity that I took when I married her, would you listen to me on any matter of morals?  And yes, when you get married you take a vow of chastity, to be faithful to your wife and your wife only.  A priest, when he is ordained, takes a vow of celibacy, no sexual contact with anyone, period.  He is supposed to be faithful to the church he serves.

A priest who violates those vows, and then stands up and says he is happy and proud, is not any kind of a priest that needs to be followed or listened to.  He should be prayed for.  He should be pitied, for having fallen so deep into sin that he celebrates the perverted and shuns the sacred vows he took.  But he should absolutely be removed and de-frocked.

Look, it's simple.  You can believe in Christianity, and in Christian values.  Or you can believe in modern values that have little to do with Christianity.  But if you hold to the latter, you cannot claim to be a priest of the former.

Nose to the grindstone

Compatriot at work headed off to ALC, formerly called BNCOC.  That leave me to do the work of two folks.  Which normally would be fine, if the idiot in charge didn't already having us do double the work.

I cannot wait to leave this shithole.
