Cut Slingload, you morons!

Oh, I'm sorry, that's an Army term so the Air Force probably won't get it.

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is the most expensive, and possible the most error ridden, project in the history of the United States military. But DOD has sunk so much money into the F-35 — which is expected to cost $1.5 trillion over the 55-year life of the program  that the Pentagon deemed it "too big to fail" in 2010.

Now, I'm not going to claim to be a strategic expert, but from my foxhole, it seems as if the top brass of the Air Force has been fucking up one thing after another in a string of fuck-ups that goes back for a while now.

I understand the lure of the "do anything" fighter, I really do.  But it doesn't exist.  It never has.  It never will.  The Air Force keeps wanting to kill the A-10 Thunderbolt (aka The Warthog), despite the fact that there is not one single other plane in the Air Force inventory that can perform the mission that the A-10 does.  The F-35 can't do it.  The F-22 Raptor, the best fighter jet we have for air-to-air combat, can't touch what the A-10 does.  So what's the AF's response?  Kill the A-10.

Hell, at this point the F-35 is not an actual program to build and develop a superior plane.  It is a program built and developed to transfer trillions of dollars from the US people to businesses that have connections with Washington D.C. politicians.

More than anything, the shift in strategy is an indictment of the way that the Air Force and the rest of DOD have been doing business for years. The F-35 has come to symbolize all that's wrong with American defense spending: uncontrolled bloat, unaccountable manufacturers (in this case, Lockheed Martin), and an internal Pentagon culture that cannot adequately track taxpayer dollars.
This has been such a cock-up that I would fire anyone and anything associated with the program, cut all ties, and start from scratch.  Re-start the F-22 production in the meantime to cover ourselves while we develop something new.  Realize that in the future, the chances of fighting one super-power's planes with our planes is roughly about the same chance as sending our Infantry division out of fight another super-power's Infantry division:  Those days are long gone.  They're so far gone that we don't even keep a traditional Infantry Division around any more.

We're still fucking around with 2nd Generation warfare concepts while the enemies we're facing are past 3rd Generation and into 4th generation.  Having a plane that blows a Mig out of the sky is nice.  We have those.  They're called the F-22 Raptor, which has been shit-canned in favor of the absolute failure of the F-35.  But we also need planes to support missions much like we currently are fighting.  And I'll take the decades-old Warthog over the new, expensive shiny toy that doesn't work like the F-35.

Bah.  This is all pissing in the wind while that Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure Obama is still infecting the Oval Office.

Are you noticing a trend yet?

MORE muslim pedophilia rings in England, while the police screw things up and do nothing.

I cannot begin to fathom what I would do if I had a daughter being repeatedly raped by muslims while the police did nothing.  I think that by the time I was through, there wouldn't be a muslim alive within 50 miles, and the offices of the authorities would look like the site of a nuke strike.

The supposed Cruz sex scandal

So...  Let me see if I get this straight:

Cruz had multiple affairs over the years.  And the most hated man in Washington D.C., reviled by both the GOP and Democrats managed to cover them up, until a Donald Trump advisor (Roger Stone, who is also former Nixon guy) managed to whisper into the ear of the National Enquirer, who's publisher is ALSO a Trump amigo.

Yeah.  Right.  Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

The question isn't just "Did Cruz do it", because I don't think he did.  The question is how much damage is the allegation going to cause to Cruz in the long term?  Because as we all know from watching the Democrats, whom Trump supporters seem to be emulating, a lie told often enough will stick.

Virginia booze is expensive

I thought California was high priced.  The East Coast outdoes even Kommiefornia by about 25%.  No wonder moonshine is so big over on this side of the country; it's probably the only real affordable booze that some folks around here can afford.

This cannot be stated enougb

Socialism fails.  Every time.

The data never lies.

For example, Mississippi has a higher median income ($23,017) than 18 countries measured here. The Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and the United Kingdom all have median income levels below $23,000 and are thus below every single US state. Not surprisingly, the poorest OECD members (Chile, Mexico, and Turkey) have median incomes far below Mississippi.

Things get even worse once you factor in purchasing power and other factors.

Once purchasing power among the US states is taken into account, we find that Sweden's median income ($27,167) is higher than only six states: Arkansas ($26,804), Louisiana ($25,643), Mississippi ($26,517), New Mexico ($26,762), New York ($26,152) and North Carolina ($26,819).

We find something similar when we look at Germany, but in Germany's case, every single US state shows a higher median income than Germany. Germany's median income is $25,528. Things look even worse for the United Kingdom which has a median income of $21,033, compared to $26,517 in Mississippi. 
Sweden is held up as the perfect example of socialism that works.  Bernie Sanders supporters everywhere practically have the name "Sweden" tattooed on their foreheads.  "B-b-b-but SWEDEN!" they shriek, as if the mere name of the country will ward off reality.

But reality will always win, even if that means it wins over our dead bodies.  Or impoverished bodies.

Anyways, the next time you encounter a Leftist spouting off about how great European Socialism is, nail 'em with the truth.  And let's face it:  The reason so many of these ProgTards want socialism is so that they don't have to work, and they can let someone else take care of them.  The removal of everybody's freedoms is incidental to their comfort and security.

Brussels go boom

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp "Why?" 
Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

This is what they do, folks.  This is what they do in their countries, and this is what they are doing in ours.  Europe embraced the scorpion and held it close to it's breast.  Now they're getting stung.

Does that sound heartless?  Does it?  How many times do you have to tell a little child to not touch a stove?  Apparently, Europe has the mind of a little child when it comes to Islam.  No matter how much evidence there is of mass muslim immigration being a bad idea, they just have to touch that stove.

The problem is, once the invaders are through the gates, it's a hell of a lot harder if not impossible to get them out.

Europe flung open it's gates and allowed the invaders to come en masse.  This is not the last bombing that Europe will deal with.  Not by a long shot.  There will be rivers of blood on European streets before this is over.  And there's no guarantee that Europe will win.  Hell, I don't think that most of Europe has the will to win.  Europeans have shown that they're going to cower and cringe and die weeping and sniveling in the streets while muslim boots crush them to death.

I don't even know if America is far behind.

On Obama going to Cuba

Others have said what I want to say, only better.

What else can I say?  It's two communist leaders greeting each other.  The only difference is that the Castro brothers are doing what Obama wants to do.  And Obama considers Cuba to be his ideological brethren, where as we bible-thumping, one-toothed, sister-humping Jesus freaks in fly-over country are his ideological enemies.  Obama has far more in common with Raul Castro than he does with an actual American.

Apparently, there's this crap called Saw Greenbriar

And it likes to grow everywhere on the property.

Nasty, nasty stuff.  Grows up, grows sideways, grows along the ground.  Thorns all over the place.  It's like concertina wire, only green.  And I've been yanking it out of the ground in my off time.  I hope to have a nice spot of land free of the crap so we can actually use the area we have, rather than just a small yard.

Did I mention that I'm putting in an archery range?  I'm putting in an archery range.

Rules for relationships

I had thought, as a guy, that there were certain rules that guys had to follow in order to keep a good relationship going.  Rules that were so crystal clear that they didn't need to be written down.  Hell, rules that are pretty much ingrained in anyone with a functioning brain, in big flashing neon letters that say "DON'T DO THIS OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS DONE AND OVER!"

For example, this rule:  You do not ever ever ever EVER stick your dick in a crack whore.

An acquaintance of mine apparently never learned that rule.  It was an interesting night last night.

I'm starting to think that people in this country are too nice

This crap right here?  This giant temper tantrum of spoiled, shitty little cry-bullies who interrupt everyone else's life so they can publicly shit their pants in the middle of an interstate?  I swear to you, if anyone does that kind of crap and holds me up, me and Mr. Tire Iron will make sure there's not a single piece of solid glass left on the cars they parked in the middle of the interstate so they can hold their public display of infantilism.

But people in this country are too nice.  They'll get upset, they'll get mad, they'll say nasty things, but they won't do what needs to be done, which is to punch these cry-bullies so hard in the fucking face that they're shitting out their teeth for the next few days.

Break every window of their car.  Make them drink their dinners through a straw for a bit, and see how many of their public temper tantrums they do in the future.

These slimy, mentally diseased Marxist shock troops have never been punched.  They've been coddled, they've been cocooned, they've lived their entire lives in a hermetically sealed bubble of Leftist, Marxist ideological toxic stew.  They have spent their entire lives assaulting other people verbally or physically, and not once have they ever had someone throw their crap right back in their face.

That has to change.  Bullies, especially cry-bullies, never stop until they are punched by the people they're bullying.  People need to stop being nice.

Stop.

Being.

Nice.

The cry-bullies do not deserve nice treatment.  They should never expect nice treatment.  And they will never stop until the people they're bullying STOP BEING NICE.
