Mulching mowers rock

Lots of leaves falling down around the house.  It's that time of year, you just have to deal with it.  Lots of folks out raking leaves today.  I saw them as I was going for my morning run.  Me?  Heh.

Mulching mower, baby.  Grind those leaves up.  Put them right back into the ground and let them feed the yard for the next year.

There will come a time when I have to rake, just because of the sheer amount of leaves that are going to drop.  If you had my address (and you don't) and you looked at my house on Google Maps, you couldn't see my roof.  I've got so many trees around that you literally can't see my house or my yard.  If I actually owned this house instead of renting it, I'd be clearing trees for at least fifty feet in every direction.

But it's not my house.  I've made the suggestion.  It's been ignored.  I'm not about to bust my ass on a piece of property that I don't own.  I'll do maintenance, but if they want me to do improvements they can pay me.

Looking at chainsaws, probably going to purchase on in the next couple of months.  There's a place close to me that has Stihl saws for a decent price.  Dad got a Stihl when he moved to the country in 1985, and it's still running.  He's still cutting up 6-8 cords of wood a year with it.  That's good enough for me.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day

From Mostly Cajun in the comments to the below post:

It's a difficult shift to go from 'Designing For Sasquatch' to dealing with an actual woman that you don't need to hide.

Moochelle's face just got a handprint-shaped welt on it, and she doesn't know why.  Well, THIS time.....

So, the designer who dressed Moochelle Obama refuses to dress Melania Trump

No, really, she wrote a letter and everything.

Here's my thought:  Having seen what Moochelle has worn over the past eight years, why in the name of all that's holy would Melania Trump want to wear that crap?  I'd say Mrs. Trump dodged a bullet right there!

It's not even THANKSGIVING yet!

And every damn store around here has Christmas stuff up already!  I wouldn't mind if it were actual religious goods, but no, it's the cheap, "Buy lots of things!" kind of crap that has turned Christ's Mass into one gigantic bankruptcy hearing.

Advent doesn't start for weeks.  But of course, most Americans today don't even know what Advent is.  They just know Santa Klaus.  Old Saint Nick.

Saint Nicholas was a bad-ass, by the way.  Read up on him.  As in, punch heretics in the mouth kind of bad-ass.  Yeah.

I love Christmas, but I'm starting to hate the whole "Christmas Season".

I'd like to say I can't believe we're talking about his crap again

But I'm not shocked at all.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday convinced Republicans to postpone votes on bringing back legislative earmarks until 2017 after reminding members of Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington. 
House Republicans were set to hold a secret ballot on changes to their internal conference rules that would have allowed lawmakers to direct spending to projects in their districts, under certain circumstances. 
Based on what lawmakers were saying in the meeting, “it was likely that an earmark amendment would have passed,” according to a source in the room. 
“Ultimately, the Speaker stepped in and urged that we not make this decision today,” the source said.

If Republicans want to exile themselves back to the dustbin of history on the national level, they should go right ahead and bring back earmarks.  Yay, business as usual!  Which is the reason THEY GOT DONALD FUCKING TRUMP as the GOP nominee!

Apparently, the only way we're going to be rid of these fucking big-government assholes is to literally drag them from the Capitol building by their hair, curb-stomp their heads into fucking pulp and throw them down the steps.  And I for one volunteer to do the dragging, curb-stomping and throwing.  I'll do it on my dime.  I'll pay for the gas to drive up there.  I'll pay for a hotel to rest up from all the dragging, stomping and throwing.  And I'll pay for the fucking champagne to celebrate ridding the country of these fucking shitweasels for good.

If the GOP brings back earmarks, they'll lose their majority in the very next election as disgusted Americans run away from the corrupt party of earmarking porky bastards.

Amazon

Just ordered some LED bulbs for my bike's light bar.  Had two halogen bulbs burn out already.  Could be from the roads I ride on, could just be what happens.  But I'm tired of replacing bulbs on a regular basis, so we'll see how the LED ones do.  It's only $20, which is just a little more than what I was paying for normal bulbs.

And now, breakfast.

Overheard tonight

Kellyann Conway, Trump's campaign manager, is the kind of woman that Hillary Clinton billed herself as being.

Accurate.

I consume very little from Hollywood

I don't have a TV in the house, we don't go to movies at the theater, and I mostly avoid the crap that comes out from the Left Coast.  So when Joss Whedon goes on an epic rant about how Trump shouldn't be allowed to be president, well...  that kinda makes me sad, because Whedon is one of the few directors in Hollywood that makes movies I like.

Oh well.  Fuck Joss Whedon and his movies.

I think I understand now why Firefly only made it one season.  Whedon didn't know what he had.  He literally had no idea what he held in his hands, because the very concepts that drew people to the show were foreign to him.

Friggin' Epic

Tom Kratman just posted my mental rant.  How he managed to get into my head and pry it out of my brain, I'm not sure.


Modern, young, metrosexual, multicultural, social justice mongering lefties are idiots. They are idiots wherever found, all over the world. They are spoiled children; ill-mannered, ill-bred, weak, ignorant, and stupid. They are historically illiterate. They have no idea of how the world really works. The only ideas they have outside of the fever swamps contained within their neutronium-dense skulls, filled to the brim with professorial sewage, are the kind of ideas that can only survive inside the echo chamber of a safe space.2 They are, frankly, disgusting, and the similarities between them and actual human beings are minimal. Morally, intellectually, spiritually, they are cockroaches. Were it not that some of them are possibly larval stage human beings, creatures who may eventually grow up to be actual human beings, there would be little or no moral component to gassing them.3



It just gets better.  Read the whole thing.

There is a reason

There's a reason why, when viewing accounts of Leftists suffering terribly under the lash of the EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL RIECH WINGERS, we must turn a jaundiced eye at the accounts in questions.

Because of Rule #1:  SJW's ALWAYS LIE.

Every time you hear yet another hysterical account by a Leftist about how they were treated so horribly, you can most likely brush it off as just another lie being foisted by an ideology that has a pathological aversion to the truth.

Oh, I'm stealing that for my lexicon

From the incomparable brain of John C Wright:

Throw your scabbards away, gentlemen. The sword will not sleep in your hand, not for many long and bloody winters of war.

By the by, if anyone out there enjoys good fiction, check Mr. Wright out.  His "Swan Knight's Son" is an excellent book in the fashion of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, albeit in a much shorter tome.

But that phrase...  "Throw your scabbards away, gentlemen".  Does that not encapsulate exactly what needs to be said and done?

Casualties, you say?

ShitLib Fascists protesting and screaming that people are going to die for their revolution.



The only thing that's died around this dumb fucking bitch is a double cheeseburger with bacon.  I pray that if the Second Civil War comes around, worthless cunts like that are the ones fighting on the Marxist side, because that would be the shortest fucking battle ever.

"THERE WILL BE CASUALTIES ON BOTH SIDES!!!!"

Yep.  Difference is, YOUR casualties will be full of bullet holes, and OUR casualties will be a hernia from laughing our asses off at the expressions on the faces of your corpses..  Try that on for size, you Most Special Snowflake.  Now go waddle your fat, herpes-riddled ass back to your safe space and shut the fuck up while the adults try to fix the damage that you and your communist pals have made, m'kay?

71 mentally deranged freaks arrested in Portland, OR


And you can see their mug shots here.  There's not a single person in those mug shots you would ever invite into your house.  Their mental disease has progressed to the point that it's reflected on their faces.  Go take a gander, seriously.  These lunatics range in appearance from "barks at moon and finger-paints with own feces" to "Uncle Badtouch, never allow near children".

Their mental debilitation is written on their faces.  You don't even have to hear them say anything to know these people are seriously fucked in the head.

It's indoctrination, not education

So this little post-mortem right here starts with:

1. How easily the college-educated go barking mad.

At this point, I would say that with the exception of the hard sciences, the entire point of a college education is to make you go barking mad.  If the Marxist echo chambers of academia don't drive you into mental breakdown, the coming out of a university and realizing you've spent the cost of an entire house on a degree that qualifies you to flip burgers at McDonald's has to be a huge mental stressor.

"But my Masters degree in Feminist and Womyn's Studies!!!!"

Makes you un-employable.  Seriously.  Who wants to hire THAT?  That's a walking HR nightmare - someone with delusions of grandeur who probably isn't even up to adequate in their job skills, walking around with one gigantic 3rd-wave feminist chip on their shoulder.  Oh, gosh, yeah, that's exactly who I want working with me, or for me!

ShitLib Fascists are having melt-down over melt-down on campuses all over the country, from the special little snowflakes at Yale who can't handle Halloween costumes, to the brainless fucking retards all over the country who need a safe space because Donald Trump got elected.

That's JUST THE KIND OF PERSON I want in my business!  Yep!  Gosh!

For the sarcasm impaired - I don't want that kind of person to be within a hundred yards of me.  These loony ShitLibs need to be quarantined until we can figure out which ones can be de-programmed, and which ones are a lost cause

Wanda Sykes is still a thing?

So un-funny woman Wanda Sykes got booed in Boston when she went on a political tear at a comedy charity event.

I think people are tired of being yelled at.  I think people are tired of Liberals ruining literally everything by injecting their toxic political views into everything they touch.  It can't just be a charity event where they raise money, no, it has to be a five minute rant by the aforementioned un-funny woman.  And quite frankly, if I had paid a lot of money for charity to sit there, I'd be booing her as well.

Tell jokes, you un-funny woman.  Your political lectures are boring and stupid.  They highlight your ignorance and banality.  Tell jokes, or shut the fuck up and go away.

If you're the praying sort

You might want to utter a prayer for the folks in New Zealand right now.  7.4 earthquake.  Ouch.

And tsunamis on the coastal areas.  Double ouch.
