In case you didn't know

Basset Hounds snore.  Great dogs, love 'em to death, friendly as all get out, love to hang out on the couch, but holy cow snoring.

We're dog sitting for some friends.  Luckily as I said, he hangs out on the couch and not in the bedroom.  Because I couldn't sleep with this under my bed all night long.

The FBI is now converged and worthless

The organization that refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her many crimes now says that the guy who targeted Republicans, scouted the ball field, worked for Bernie and raged against Trump "didn't have a target in mind".

The FBI literally states that Hodgekinson didn't have any target in mind when he asked whether it was Republicans or Democrats playing ball.  Apparently, the explicit list of targeted Republicans found on Hodgekinson wasn't enough of a clue as to who he was targeting.

I don't know what all is going on at the FBI HQ.  But I do know this - they are fully taken over by the Left, and now should be considered as nothing more than an armed wing of the Democrat Party.  There is no more impartiality at the FBI.  It is nothing more than a pathetic group of government thugs working for one side of the political spectrum.

Democrats love Vote Fraud

It's how they win, time after time.

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. 
As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

Democrats only win elections where they cheat and steal.  I'm willing to bet that the Clinton camp had millions of votes illegally put in to the system by one way or another.  That's why they didn't campaign in Wisconsin; they thought they had it in the bag with voter fraud.  It worked in Minnesota to get Al "The Fuckheaded Clown" Franken elected in 2010.  But they didn't count on people coming out just to vote against Hillary, and they didn't stuff the ballot box enough, so they lost.

If Republicans were actually serious about holding on to their seats, they would make damn sure that voter fraud was greatly reduced all over the country.

As has been pointed out

A woman won the special election in Georgia's 6th district.  And the Democrats have absolutely lost their minds in a howling fit of rage, spite and hatred.

Why are Democrats so misogynist?

Found this at Ace's place

How.....  appropriate.

Last day of vay-cay

Trying to get into the mindset to go back to work.

Yeah, it's old.  Screw you.  Notice anything different from the version that gets played on air?

I'm not a big fan of many things that end in "-cide"

Herbicide being one of those.  That being said, it appears that the Left has done what it will do, and lied its ass off about RoundUp.

Hundreds of cancer patients promptly sued Monsanto, claiming the company had concealed the danger of carcinogenicity, notwithstanding the fact that it would be hard to find a farmer who hadn’t been exposed to glyphosate. The European Union said it would consider IARC’s finding when deciding whether to continue to allow glyphosate to be used in Europe. “Environmentalists” had scored a major coup. 
But the whole thing turned out to be a fraud. Reuters has investigated, aided by access to deposition testimony in one or more of the lawsuits against Monsanto, which evidently was not subject to a protective order. Briefly put, the author of the IARC’s carcinogenicity study, Aaron Blair, an epidemiologist from the U.S. National Cancer Institute, covered up his own research showing that exposure to glyphosate did not lead to a higher incidence of cancer in humans.

As Powerline points out, you cannot trust any "scientific" studies from a Leftist organization anymore.  Their politics win out over truth, reality, and facts.

I didn't look at a single bit of politics yesterday

Up early, went to church.  Heard a good sermon.  Changed clothing, drove down to Colonial Williamsburg.  We have a guest in the house who hasn't been East of Idaho in his life, so we're giving him a tour.  Spent the day walking around, taking tours.  Today will be downtown Richmond, museums, etc.

Kinda nice being unplugged for a bit.

More Obama corruption being shut down

The entire Obama administration was like a nest of termites, eating away at the house of the Republic.  You'll be finding damage for decades to come.  And I don't think we can fix all of it.  But this makes me smile:  AG Sessions ends Obama's illegal payoffs to left-wing groups.

Obama deserves to rot in jail for the rest of his life.

Here's a list that should make you go to the range and start practicing again

A list of attacks against Conservatives by the Left.

You DO go to the range, don't you?

For this alone, the EPA should be dismantled

The Gold King Mine disaster.  I've posted on this before.  It keeps getting worse.

The EPA is, at best, a collection of some of the dumbest, most arrogant, unaccountable people to ever hold power in Washington D.C.  And the EPA is rarely if ever at it's best.

More often than not, it is yet another thuggish arm of a thuggish government determined to strip property rights away from law-abiding Americans.

Reminder: Democrats hate you and want you to die

Shots fired at truck flying Trump flag.

Several shots were fired at a truck flying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on a highway in Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon, Fox 59 reported. Luckily, no one was hurt in the incident, which looks like a possible case of left-wing terrorism.

This shit ain't gonna stop until lots of people are dead.  As Og is fond of saying, we're not voting our way out of this mess.

This is my shocked face

Trump orders government to stop work on Y2K bug, 17 years later.

Now, that little blurb is included in a whole slew of reforms that are going on right now with the Office of Management and Budget.  But how the fucking fuck were we still working on crap for Y2K in 2017?

Oh, right - because as long as someone is getting a paycheck from the government to do it, they'll find endless excuses to do it no matter what.

Folks, every now and then you have to stop and re-assess the systems you have in place.  Get rid of the junk.  See if any improvements can be made.  Naturally, the government sucks at this, because that means you're re-assessing someone's cash cow, and that tends to make the person milking that cash cow grumpy.  But that's even more reason to do it.  I don't care if the person at the Office of Buggy Whips and Carriage Harnesses is grumpy over their cash cow getting slaughtered.  It needs to be slaughtered.

Leftists hate you and want you to die

But of course there's proof.

Take a good, hard look folks.  This is what normal, sane Americans are facing every single day.

Gunman opens fire on Congressional baseball game

Multiple people wounded.

You know how the Democrat Party always claims that conservatives want to run around shooting people?

And yet conservatives never go around shooting people  Democrats are the ones running around shooting people.  What we have here is the wildest fantasies of the Democrat Party come to life.  Some Leftist nutjob tries to take out as my Republicans as he possibly can, and the Democrats now get to scream about "the climate of hate", while never once mentioning that THEY are the ones who created it.  They also get to scream about gun control and about how Republicans deserved to get shot because NRA/Special Interests/Lobbying blah blah blah.

And when it all comes out to it, a Leftist, guided by Leftist principals, fueled by Leftist hatred, blinded by Leftist ideology, tried to kill as many conservatives as he could.  And the Left will use this to attack conservatives, and try to blame conservatives for what they themselves did.

So let me go back - you know how the Democrat Party always claims that conservatives want to run around shooting people?  And have you noticed how it's always Leftists running around shooting people?  This is called PROJECTION.  It's rule number three of the Social Justice Warrior.  SJW's always project.  They always assign their worst traits to their enemies.

Now, keep that in mind, because the SJW's and Leftists also claim that the conservatives and the Right want to put the Left in concentration camps and fill mass graves with the prisoners.

Yeah.  Chew on that.  And we have plenty of proof today that the Left will act out on their desires that they blame on us.

Well, ain't THAT interesting?

More guns, less crime.  Yes, I know I'm preaching to the choir on this, but here's something you can take home to clobber your liberal relatives with.

FBI crime report figures show that Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming–three states that abolished their concealed requirement years ago–have since witnessed a decreased in handgun murders. 
This runs completely counter to the left’s doom and gloom predictions whereby they claim doing away with a government-issued carry permit will mean more bad guys carrying guns, more shootings and violence, etc.

The more you know...  and all that jazz.

James Comey is like a giant pile of rotting shit

The deeper you dig, the more it stinks.

Let’s begin with the case of one Frank Quattrone, a banker who Comey pursued relentlessly on banking related charges without fruition. But while he couldn’t find any wrong-doing on criminal conduct, he went after him for supposed “obstruction of justice” because of a single ambiguous email. Sound familiar? 
Before he was indicted, Comey made false statements about Quattrone and his intent. The first trial ended in a hung jury but the second one got a conviction.  
That conviction was overturned in 2006. Quattrone was so scarred by the harassment, he began funding projects designed to help innocent people who are victims of prosecutorial overreach or other problems. He said his motivation for supporting such projects was that at the very moment he was found guilty in the second trial, he realized there must be innocent people in prisons who lacked the financial resources to fight for justice. He also started the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. 
Quattrone has noted with interest the disparities in how he was treated by Comey for a single email compared to his handling of the Hillary Clinton email server scandal.

James Comey deserves to be in jail for his non-prosecution of Hillary Clinton, because a lot of people have been put in jail for far, far less than she did.  But as I'm finding out, Comey has always been a Clinton dog.

Checklist of things I wanted to do

Five mile run?  Check

Clean up yard from various branches and detritus?  Check

Mow the yard?  Check

Cigar and a Manhattan in my glass?  Check

If I get a blowjob tonight, my day will be complete.  Yep, it's the first day of leave, and I'm already winning.

Another busy day today

But this time I'm catching up on all the stuff I couldn't do when I was busy at work.  So it's kind of a win.

So instead of content from me, here's five essential hacks for Summer.  Make your life better!

I could listen to this all day long

Yeah, I like Brass.

If Democrats didn't cheat, they wouldn't win

More evidence of voter fraud, this time in Indiana.

Twelve employees of a Democrat-linked group focused on mobilizing black voters in Indiana are accused of submitting fake or fraudulent voter registration applications ahead of last year’s general election in order to meet quotas, according to charging documents filed Friday.

And why is it that every time there's evidence of voter fraud, it's connected to the Democrat party?

The Indiana Voter Registration Project’s effort to register primarily black voters was overseen by Patriot Majority USA, which has ties to the Democratic Party, including Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and former President Bill Clinton.

Voter fraud is how Al Franken has his seat.  Voter fraud is how Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck got over 100% of the vote in some districts in Ohio.  It's how Christine Gregoir got elected governor of Washington State in 2004.  Voter fraud exists, and it always, ALWAYS favors the American Communist Democrat Party.  The National Socialist American Workers Party, if you will.

We will never fix the damage that Obama did to this country

There's just too much.

Just when you thought Obama’s disastrous Iran deal couldn’t get any worse, we learn that in order to protect the bad deal, Obama systematically disbanded units investigating Iran’s terror-funding networks.  Not only that, but he also disbanded units investigating the state funding of terrorists by Syria and Venezuela.

Although we shouldn't be shocked.  Obama cared far more about islamic terrorists than he did about their victims, and he cared far more about Hugo Chavez than he does about the victims of socialism who live in Venezuela.

He was the anti-American president.

James Comey exposes the kind of sleazy fuckstick he was, and is.

While writing a novel-length "briefing" that's anything but brief.  I won't re-hash Powerline's summary, you can go read their thoughts at the link.  I will say that Comey was Clinton's dog from the word "Go", and nothing in his written testimony will make you think otherwise.  Trump should have fired him on January 21st.

Updated to add:  Comey has been a Democrat Party Bitch for years.

Is it possible that everything they and their friends are alleging about Comey and Trump is true? Absolutely. Everything they and their associates are anonymously providing to journalists eager to promote their narrative could be true, especially given Trump’s tendency to rhetorically shoot from the hip. 
But given Comey’s history of secretly colluding with Democratic officials to craft a disputed narrative that makes everyone but himself look awful in order to oust a top Republican who didn’t sufficiently kowtow to Comey, there’s little reason to assume events transpired exactly the way Comey and his friends allege, especially given that both Comey and Bharara have rather obvious axes to grind on the matter. After all, Trump is the reason neither of them currently has a job. In light of Comey’s history of twisting private conversations and events, it’s probably a good idea to take anonymous leaks from him and his friends with a grain of salt.

So if you want to know why Hillary Clinton is still free, instead of being locked up in jail awaiting trial like any other American would be, it's because James Comey's loyalty is first and foremost to the Democrat Party.  Which means it's not to America.

Here's a clue for Portland's dipshit mayor

When looking for those who would commit violence, start with the violent, mask wearing fascists and thugs of the Left.

The Left is so far into either A) delusion, B) outright lying or C) both, that they can't look at what side is wearing masks over their faces and determine who is acting in good faith and who is acting in bad.

Here's a hint, just in case you're a "progressive" leftist, which means that you're so stupid you might actually have to be informed of this basic bit of knowledge:  If you look around, and you're surrounded by people who refuse to show their faces, waving bats, sticks and various other weapons, throwing bottles, bricks and rocks, then you are the fascist attempting to shut down free speech.

This is why CNN is Fake News

Fake Fake-ity Fakiness.

As you watch the video, you can see that this is not a bona fide demonstration that CNN observed and reported on. Rather, the entire event–one could say, the pitifully small event–is being stage-directed by CNN for its cameras, to advance CNN’s narrative.

CNN desperately wants you to believe what they're selling you.  And what they're selling you is pure Grade-A Bullshit.  Watch the video at the link.  CNN is crafting their story out of thin air.

CNN is Fake News.  Always has been.  Probably always will be.

A perfect analogy for Leftism

By now you've all heard of the Jill Stein supporter who murdered two people on a train in Portland.  Despite the media's desperate attempts to call him a Trump Supporter, he was a hard core Bernie Bro who voted for Stein in the general election.  And last week he killed two people and wounded another.

Also in Portland, someone stole the backpack and wedding ring of one of the victims.  Stole the ring right off the corpse.  He's been caught now, thank goodness.

But that's the perfect analogy for Leftism.  After you get murdered by some Leftist psychopath, another Leftist robs your corpse and walks away.

Every now and then

I need a reminder that not all modern country artists suck ass.


I'm knackered

And I don't have a day off for at least another week.

I seem to be apologizing quite a bit for missing days.  Gah.

Reagan Airport isn't to bad

But the American Airlines Eagle section?  Blows.  I've never had a problem with American Airlines, but today I felt like a damn cow getting herded into a cattle car.

Meh.  Next time, Dulles.


I never remember how god-awfule CNN truly is, given that I don't own a TV and refuse to turn CNN on at a hotel.  So when I'm in an airport, and it's all CNN every TV, I'm forced to sit and listen to some of the most brainless, inane babbling bullshit.  And quite frankly, it makes me weep for this country that these bubble-living, beltway-inhabiting, never been West of I95 dipshits count as a news source.

Alex Jones, for all of his screaming and hyperbole, is more factually based than CNN.

And Chris Cizilla, who writes like a smarmy, snot-nosed douchebag, looks and sounds just like a smarmy, snot-nosed douchebag.  So at least I pegged that one.  Not like it was hard to do.

Memorial Day

My father has the names of friends on that wall.

Freedom isn't free.  Ever.  Hence the name of this blog.

The New Rules

Well, I for one hope that the Right remembers to keep playing by them.

We conservatives have been warning for a long time that liberals are not going to like it when everyone plays by the new rules, and – surprise! – they don’t. But guess what? Most of us don’t like the new rules either. Yet it’s ridiculous to expect human beings to remain in perpetual denial about the situation they face, and to forever live under a double standard that results in their faces getting pressed into the dirt.  
The hypocrisy has become intolerable, and we have stopped tolerating it. This is just the beginning of the reaction, and - make no mistake – this entire situation is a bad thing. 

Dude, if you keep doing that you won't like the result.

(liberal does stupid shit, assaults conservative)

Dude, if you keep doing that, you will not like the result!

(liberal does stupid shit, assaults conservative)

Hey asshole, keep it up and you'll be crying!

(liberal laughs, sneers, does stupid shit, assaults conservative)

(Conservative beats that commie fuckstick like a drum, resulting in loud squealing)

This is the new normal.  I have watched the Left act like spoiled, shitty brats for my entire life.  I have watched them devolve from being spoiled, snotty brats to being spoiled, snotty, physically abusive brats.  I don't have one iota of pity for them, because they have been warned time and time and time again that actions have consequences, and they have ignored it and called the people trying to help them every name in the book.  "OH MY GOD YOU GUYTH!  BEN JACOBTH WATH BODYTHLAMMED BY A REPUBLICAN!"  Oh, really?  Cool.  Is he hospitalized?  No?  Too bad, because THAT would have been cool!  Oh, you expect me to give a shit about some Leftist douchenozzle reporter who hates me?  Nah.  I'm not expending any energy on that shitstain befouling America's underpants, except to note - HAAA HAAA HAAA HAAA HAAAAAAAA!

And spineless, gutless pathetic lumps of shit like David Frum can wring their hands and whimper in despair, and snivel about how I should be better than that.  Fuck that noise.  That's the kind of defective thinking that punishes a bullying victim for finally fighting back, but never punishes the bully.  I don't need Frum's approval.  Hell, I don't want Frum's approval.  I want the bully on his knees with a bloody nose, crying that he'll never lay a hand on me again.

Hypocrisy is poison not because it makes people stop knowing right from wrong, but because it makes its victims stop caring about right and wrong. Ben Jacobs got smacked around, and millions of us just don’t give a damn.
It's not just that we don't give a damn.  It's that we know if the shoe were on the other foot, and it was us getting bodyslammed, the Left would cheer, applaud, justify it, and demand more.  So fuck 'em.  Let them bleed.  Maybe they'll learn that way.

So that's $2.50 for each image of child pornograpny

That's how much Jacob Schwartz, Democrat from New York and son of NY Democrat bigwig Arthur Schwartz, is going to pay in bail money.  Given that his bail was $7,500, can anyone do the math on how many different images of child pornography he was caught with on his computer?

Some of those images involved babies as young as six months old.

Six.  Months.

And this creep, this pervert, this Democrat walks out of jail on just $7,500 bond?

Oh, and take a gander at Daddy Schwartz's photo - talk about a complete and total creep.  Pedos don't just spring up out of nowhere; I'm willing to bet that Jacob was being touched in the no-no place either by daddy or some of daddy's Democrat friends.  You know, the special ones from Greenwich Village.

So I can feel some pity for Jacob Schwartz, but before that pity is the righteous anger for the abused children that fed Jacob Schwartz's sick perverted addiction.

SJWs always Project

How Obama tried to hack the election.  The reason that the Democrats are so certain that Trump and his campaign were doing something unseemly is because that's what they were doing themselves, and they can't imagine that they got beat by someone who wasn't cheating, since they cheat on every election, every time, everywhere.

More Democrat Pedo/Kiddy Porn

Shoot them in the head.  Just shoot them and dump their body into an unmarked grave.

A leading young Democrat and de Blasio administration employee has a secret taste for sickening kiddie porn that involves baby girls as young as 6 months old, court papers revealed Friday.

I'm going to go vomit now.

Going to try my hand at crafting a shelter

My neighbor has a stand of bamboo that he doesn't quite like.  We've got some canes as tall as twenty feet, although most of them are in the 15 foot range.  So I'm going to take some down and see if I can't whip up a frame that I can pull a tarp over, and thus have a nice covered area for my motorcycle.

This should be interesting.

(added)  Turns out the canes were far more than twenty feet, as the three canes I cut all yielded three 12-foot poles.

And so now I have a new car

My old car was dying slowly.  The radio only half worked.  Speedometer was dead.  Odometer was dead.  Rusty, slowly falling apart.  189,000 miles on it, many of those from the upper Midwest, which means body damage.  And it's a Suzuki Sidekick, with a top speed of under 70 mph, which has been driven across the country two and a half times by me.

So, the Mrs and I set about coming up with criteria for a new car some time ago.  Mine were pretty simple.  Manual transmission, good gas mileage, and A/C.  The Suzuki doesn't have A/C, and by the way that as really sucked for the past 5 years with Los Angeles and now Virginia heat.  In short, I needed a runner, not some tricked out ride

So we researched, and we waited, and we saw an advert online for a Ford Fiesta marked down to around ten grand.  It meet my criteria, so off we went to go check it out.  While we were there, we test drove a Focus, which also met my criteria but was a step up, which means also more expensive.

After the test drive, we found out that the Focus was on sale cheaper than the Fiesta was.  Sold.  After all the taxes, fees, licensing, yada yada yada plus floor mats (we live in the country) and wind deflectors (this is a rainy day car) we still came out several thousand dollars below what the original sticker price was listed.

So now I have a new car.

Anybody want a Suzuki Sidekick as a project car?

Greg Gianforte wins the Montana special election

AFTER he body-slammed a member of the Democrat Media Complex.

So, a political candidate is charged with assault after body-slamming a reporter, and he wins by six or seven points.

Got it yet, media?  I'm willing to bet that his attack on the slimy little shit reporter actually helped him at the polls.  And there's been plenty of reports of the media, trying to make hay out of this, being met with voters laughing and saying "FUCK THE MEDIA!" before marching in to vote.

It seems some of us have finally learned the lesson that the media hates good, hard-working honest Americans and wants us to die.  The media hates those redneck, sister-humping, gun-toting, bible-thumping Jesusfreaks who live between I-5 and I-95.

Well, we hate you too.

Call me racist if you want

Why does every incident of riots and beatings that involve "teens" or "youths" always involve one certain ethnic group?

Where are the rampaging groups of Lutherans?  Where are the riots full of Chinese, or Koreans, or Japanese?

Why is it when you read of a riot or a fight, there's a 99% chance that it's black kids or Leftist shitheads? (redundancy alert)

And why is it racist for me to point out that white Methodists don't riot and burn down their cities, but blacks do?

Those who refuse to live by the sword can still die on them

Or, updated, those who refuse to see muslims for what they are can still die in a islamic terrorist bombing.

The "Peaceful Majority" is irrelevant.

Tomorrow I can sleep in

Although after this current 3+ weeks, my body will probably go "IT'S O-DARK-THIRTY, BITCHES!" and I'll be up.

Teenage me would hate current me.

Things that run through my head

Are probably not fit for public consumption, given what I think about after I hear about yet another goat-fucking pedophile blowing up innocent kids.

Firing Comey was the right choice, and the SMART choice

Jerry Pournelle has a post that lays out the case against James Comey.  I've wondered previously if he was just a good guy overwhelmed by events.  I can say that I was wrong.  Comey was a Clinton crony from way back, who enabled the Clinton corruption for decades.  In a just world, he'd be brought up on charges, jailed, and never breathe another particle of air as a free man.

Reflections on Manchester

Britain has been importing muslims en masse for years now, and where ever muslims go, terrorism follows.  Dystopic nails my feelings on this:

I don’t know about you, folks, but I’ve no more patience with this. These people believe that hugs, tears, candles, and symbols chalked onto the streets will somehow banish murderous extremists like ISIS. Together, the power of the Care Bear rainbows will banish all badthink to another dimension, or something. I feel like I’m surrounded by emotional toddlers, unable to separate magical fantasy from grounded reality. 
Peace with the Islamic world is most assuredly possible, but it won’t come from hearts drawn in the streets, it will come with a price tag in blood and treasure. Islam, after all, has always had bloody borders. And the weakness of the West has only emboldened them.

Let me just post this right here, once again:  The "Peaceful Majority" is irrelevant.

The fireworks start at around 4:02.

The Manchester bomber was the son of Libyan refugees who was born and raised in Britain.  And was still a muslim, so he blew up little girls.  "But Dave, not all muslims blah blah blah" and go watch the video again if you still regurgitate that line.  15-25% of all muslims worldwide can be classified as "extremist".  That means a population the size of the USA wants to destroy Western civilization.  That doesn't count all the other muslims who might not want to kill us, but support and empathize with those who do.

Letting muslims into your country is suicide.

Bombings in Manchester, UK

Where ever muslims go, violence is sure to follow.  We can pray for the victims, but what we truly need to pray for is that formerly "Great" Britain wakes up and stops importing their own murderers.

Islam is a satanic cult of pedophile, goat-fucking, moon-god worshipping idiots, retards, and psychopaths.  Always has been.  Always will be.

Too Good To Check

Harvard senior submits rap album as thesis, gets an A.

But Dave, why do you think college today is a bullshit debt bomb that does nothing but churn out Marxist-indoctrinated drones with no useable skills?  Huh.  I dunno.

B-b-b-but it's been PUBLISHED! In a PUBLICATION!

I salute these people.  I truly do.

NYU physicist Alan Sokal thought very little of the research performed by his colleagues in the social sciences. To prove his point, he wrote a paper that used plenty of trendy buzz words but made absolutely no sense. As he later explained, Dr. Sokal wanted to find out if a humanities journal would "publish an article liberally salted with nonsense if (a) it sounded good and (b) it flattered the editors' ideological preconceptions." 
It would. His paper, "Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity," was published in the journal Social Text in 1996, and his hoax has earned him a place in scientific history.

And the newest entry:

In their tell-all article in Skeptic, the authors admit they jammed the paper full of jargon and made it purposefully incoherent. They said, "After completing the paper, we read it carefully to ensure it didn't say anything meaningful, and as neither one of us could determine what it is actually about, we deemed it a success." Finally, they made this particularly damning observation: 
We assumed that if we were merely clear in our moral implications that maleness is intrinsically bad and that the penis is somehow at the root of it, we could get the paper published in a respectable journal. 
It worked. That's the state of social science in 2017.

That's science today, folks.  THERE IS A CONSENSUS!  Or something.  It's becoming perfectly clear that "peer reviewed" and "published in a science journal" has become the newest cargo cult mentality.  It's "SCIENCE!" because it's been peer reviewed, but the reviewers have absolutely no idea what actually constitutes science, and so we get junk.  Flat out junk, as proven by the people in the article.

The Catholic Church is in deep doo-doo

Jorge Bergolio, who claims to be pope, is nothing more than a Marxist agitator who is appointing more Marxist agitators in high church positions.

Ann Barnhardt has some of the best write-ups on why Bergolio is the Anti-pope.  As for me, all I can see is a man who cares more for this world than for the next, who is actively attempting to destroy church doctrine and replace it with Modernist bullshit, and who does't actually believe a damn bit of what the Church teaches.

I didn't like him when he first was selected.  I like him even less now, and my dislike for him grows every day.  I can only hope that we are able to repair the damage he's doing.

Imagine if Republicans held a rally and screamed "FUCK BARACK OBAMA!"

I mean, I know I've said that plenty of times.  But I'm not a Republican, and I have never, ever been to a Republican rally where the people leading the rally held up two middle fingers and led the crowd in a chant like this:

Sen. Kamala Harris told the crowd that the president is putting “Russia first, America second.” 
“The world, literally the world, is counting on all of you, counting on California to reject Trump’s deception and destructiveness,” Gavin Newsom, the California Lieutenant Governor, said. 
But it was Burton who took it to the classless extreme. 
“All together now,” he told the crowd, encouraging them to chant as he raised his two middle fingers. “F**k Donald Trump.”

They've lost what little sanity they had left.  Keep it up, Democrats.  This is how you got Trump, and this is how he'll win in 2020.

Dear Amazon

I've owned a Kindle Paperwhite for years.  Loved it.  My old one died after years of use, and I picked up a new Kindle Paperwhite, because why change what works, right?

Only it doesn't work.  Well, it kinda does, but not nearly as well as it used to.

Apparently, when you synch your Kindle, and download a book, you don't really download a book.  No, you "queue" it up.  So the book I purchased, and supposedly downloaded in my hotel room, is "queued" up.  But when I go to open it, it's not downloaded.  Nope, that would be too easy!  And guess where I can't download it?  At the fucking Louisville airport, where I'm wanting to read a book.  And thanks to your experimental browser, I can't connect to the airport wi-fi.  Which means I don't have my book for my flight.

So Amazon, fuck you, you brainless fucking fucktards.  You took a simple one-step process and fucked it up, you bastard coated bastards with bastard filling.  You took a good thing, a simple, good thing that did what you wanted it to do, and you fucked it up.

Your new Kindle Paperwhite is kinda like New Coke.  Had I known that you added a bunch of gee-whiz shiny doo-dads, but made the damn thing harder to use, I would have purchased a Barnes and Noble Nook.  As it is, I'm about to go shell out the cash to buy one and toss your fucking Kindle into the trash.

I'm a simple guy.  I want objects that are supposed to do their job to do their fucking job.  You have failed in that regard, Amazon.  And what makes it even worse is your prior Kindle was a masterpiece of simplicity, that did its job flawlessly every time with minimal prompting.  All your fancy gizmos don't change the fact that you fucked up a perfectly good product, and as a result I'm reading fewer books now, because why the fuck am I going to spend good money when I can't even download the fucking book, EVEN THOUGH THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I TOLD YOUR FUCKING KINDLE TO DO IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Amazon just got too smart for it's own good.  I don't need a bunch of flashy bullshit on a piece of technology that doesn't work.  The new Kindle Paperwhite is like a chromed dog turd.  Oh, look, it's all shiny!  Yeah.  And it's still a dog turd.

I can't believe I spent good money on this.

I need more sleep.

Russian Collusion!

Obama gave Russia the number and location of ballistic missiles we sold to Britain.

Here, let me say that again:

Obama gave Russia the number of missiles that we sold to Britain, and also THEIR LOCATION.

Confirming Rule #3:  SJWs always PROJECT.  The reason the Left is so insistent that Trump is colluding with the Russians is because they've been bent over, sucking Putin's cock for the entire Obama tenure.  The concept of Trump not being pathetic, filthy whores for Putin the way they are is unthinkable to them.

I've said it before:  We will never fix the damage that Obama did to this country.  Now we find out we may never fix the damage he did to other countries as well.

The kids are not alright

The kids are being indoctrinated into unthinking social justice drones.

Millions of K-12 students across the country believe that mathematics is a sadistic discipline—(I should know, I was one of them)—but a new "social justice" training module aims to persuade teachers that maybe the kids are on to something. 
The course was designed by Teach for America and is offered through EdX, according to Campus Reform.It presupposes that math could be made more interesting for students if it was infused with socially relevant themes. 

This is nothing more than indoctrination to Leftist group-think.  Period.

But Teach for America thinks that language is "social justice," and has designed a course that makes some startling claims about math. 
"In western mathematics, our ways of knowing include formalized reasoning or proof, decontextualization, and algorithmic thinking, leaving little room for those having non-western mathematical skills and thinking processes," the training course claims.

I want to find this fucker who makes this shit up and drag him behind a car until there's nothing left but a bloody rope.  Math doesn't have an "East" or "West".  2+2=4 no matter where you live.  It's universal.  If  c, then b will always equal a.  It doesn't matter what culture this takes place in, and people who claim to have a different understanding of math are fucking liars trying to sell you bullshit.

And then people wonder why kids these days can't even count back change.  Maybe because they've been taught that 1 + 2 = indigenous people weeping while white oppressors steal their land and rape their women.

This is disturbing

This is the Times Square asshole running people over.  This is what evil looks like.  You've been warned.

I volunteer to be on the firing squad that splits his melon in half.

I have heard this before

The Army is getting a new rifle!  And a new caliber boolit to go in that rifle!

Uh huh.  That tune has been played about four different times since I first enlisted, and I have yet to see anything other than an M16/M4 poodle-shooter.

I'll believe it when I'm at the range qualifying with the new rifle.  Not a second sooner.

Yee Haw

So we're renting a house that's on an acre and a half.  Most of that, damn near all of it, is trees.  Massively overgrown stands of trees that make all but a quarter of an acre unusable.

Did I mention that Davey-boy got hisself a chainsaw?  Yes, yes he did!  A nice Stihl chainsaw!

There's a bit more usable space now, with more to come.  I'm leaving all the big trees to provide shade, but I'm clearing out the small, stunted trees, the deadwood, and various other things that are in the way of using the property.  It'll be like my own private park.  With a table just for smoking cigars.  Yep.

The Lunatics are in charge in some parts up North

Dude's last name is Grabher.  He's of German descent, and I don't know how it's pronounced.  I assume it's "Grab-er", or at least that's how I would say it.  Anyways, he has his last name on his plate.  Had it there for years.  Decades.  And now some precious snowflake up in Canada just pulled it.

Lorne Grabher’s plight went international after the license plate was banned following the leak of Donald Trump’s 2005 “grab her by the pussy” comment. during the 2016 presidential election. 
Speaking for Grabher, Canada’s Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms argues that the removal of the plate violates his right to free expression. At least one person complained about it, per the Toronto Sun.

Apparently, if Mr. Grabher wanted to actually grab a pussy, he just has to take hold of the Nova Scotia Registrar for Motor Vehicles.

My wife found a dog

He's a nice old dog; seems friendly, walks on a leash just fine, not starving so he's at least been taken care of recently.  She's online right now trying to find a "Lost Dog" website.  I'm figuring that we'll just call animal control tomorrow.

He didn't have a collar or a tag on him.  If he'd had a tag, we could have just called the owner.  Keep your ID on your dogs, folks.  Sad to see a good old dog like that limping around on a road and nobody has a way to get him home.

The Leftist destruction of institutions

Marvel comics has fallen into the SJW trap, pushing the Leftist narrative while losing bucketloads of money.  But apparently, the Black Lies Matter comics are losing so much money that they're being pulled after two editions.

No one is buying Marvel’s lineup of social justice-themed comics. It’s no surprise, given that few readers want politics to be forced down their throats. Thus liberal darling Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey’s Black Panther & The Crew is getting the axe after poor sales, just two issues after its launch. Its cancellation comes just weeks after a Marvel VP revealed that comics with forced messages of “diversity” were responsible for the publisher’s sales slump. 
Joined by Luke Cage, Manifold, Misty Knight, and Storm, the titular superhero who entered the limelight with Captain America: Civil War gathers his all-black crew of superheroes to investigate the death of a civil rights activist who died in police custody. 
Good.  And then fire anyone associated with bringing this pile of crap to the market, because they certainly don't have your business' best interests in mind.

Why we have President Trump

Because an average person can reasonably conclude that nobody in Washington D.C. would follow the law, treat people equally, and do what needs to be done.

Because the rule of law has been supplanted by the Rule of Man, and we who are still subjected to an increasingly tyrannical law are tired of watching the people who claim to rule us ignore the very laws they make.

Bill Whittle is a National Treasure

But we don't want him locked up in a museum, because, well, then he wouldn't make videos like this one.

Leftists care more about criminals than law abiding citizens

Green card holder, admitted to robbing a bank TWICE, was allowed to plead down to a charge that got him less than a year in jail, and now he's murdered two doctors.

So they had this guy on charges of robbing the same bank twice (I guess you stick with what works…) and his attorney knew that it could get him booted out of the country. So rather than fight it out in a jury trial he worked out a plea deal with the prosecutors where they would take 364 days in jail for his crimes. Had it been a year or more Teixeira would have been eligible for deportation. Also, he could have been kicked out of the country if he’d been convicted of bank robbery, but despite the fact that he admitted to robbing the bank twice he was given a deal to plead guilty to “larceny from a person.” 
Because of that, after serving only a pitifully short portion of his sentence, a few months later Teixeira was fleeing the apartment of Richard Field and Lina Bolanos, their bloody bodies left on the floor and a bunch of their jewelry in his backpack.

So two law abiding doctors are dead, and this piece of human garbage...  this parasite....  this oxygen thief, this anal wart on America's ass is still wasting perfectly good air.

Our immigration system is broken, but it's broken because the people in charge want it broken.  And the people in charge do not care about you.  They don't care if you're murdered by some immigrant.  They don't care if you get plowed into by some border-hopping, illegal alien who's been deported FIFTEEN TIMES before crashing into a family car and almost killing a child.

You are not important to them.  But these illegal aliens, these parasites who burrow into our country and suck the life out of it, those people are important to Leftists.  Because diversity.  And tolerance.

I'm so fucking sick of seeing shit like this every day...

B-b-b-but, there's a CONSENSUS!!!!

Or some stupid bullshit like that.  I got yer consensus right friggen here, folks.

Arctic waters absorbed vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, creating a cooling effect that’s 230 times greater than the warming from methane emitted from underwater seeps, according to a new study. 
The findings are a complete reversal of what scientists previously believed — that methane seeps in the Arctic Ocean were contributing to global warming.

Anyone who actually blathers the words "WE HAVE A CONSENSUS!" when it comes to the Global Warming hoax is either an idiot, a liar, or both.  We don't do science by consensus.  We do science by data and fact, and both of those have never, ever once supported the global cooling global warming climate change fucktards.

You want to know why climate changes on Earth?  Take a good hard look at that gigantic thermonuclear explosion currently ongoing in the middle of our solar system.

Oh, and just in case you hadn't noticed, the people who went screaming on about how we were entering an ice age were wrong, and they're they're the same people who went screaming on about how we're all going to burn to death and they were wrong then as well, and they're still wrong now.  And at each and every turn, their claim was that if we just gave up our money and our freedom to the high priests of the Church of Global Warming, they would save us from ourselves.

Meanwhile, they party with Leo DeCaprio on his private yacht after flying halfway around the world on private jets and hang out on beachfront resorts that anyone who's not a millionaire can't even begin to look at.  So take that for what it's worth.

Facebook now censoring anti-communist memes

What's that old phrase?  If you want to know who's in power, look at who you're not allowed to mock....

Oh, and May is now Communism Awareness Month, dedicated to all the victims of communism around the globe.  Take that, you filthy commies.

Don't be shocked. They've been showing you that they hate you for decades how.

California commie cunt calls other states "Podunk, USA".

A Democratic lawmaker from California referred to Middle America as "Podunk, USA," during a committee meeting last week, several sources inside the meeting told the Washington Free Beacon. 
Remarks by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.) during a closed-door Energy and Commerce Committee meeting with Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai raised eyebrows from those present.

Democrats, and especially Kalifornians, have been expressing their contempt and disgust with the rest of America for decades.  Hell, Kalifornians have been expressing their disgust with anyone who doesn't live in LA or San Fran for even longer.

So yes, this Commie Cunt called other parts of America "podunk".  I'm not shocked.  I've seen this for years and years and years.  The only real difference is that those podunk people have gained just as much contempt for that communist cunt as she has had for them.

I call it "Dave's Law"

The easiest way to have a team eliminated in the post-season is to have me root for them.

Witness last night in the race for Lord Stanley's Cup.

Dammit.  Now I have to put up with all my neighbors from Pittsburg (it's the pits!) going on and on and on about their stinking team.

With Republicans like Ron Johnson, who needs Democrats?

After all, it's not like the GOPe actually respects or listens to their voting base, eh?

On Thursday, Senator Ron Johnson (WI) introduced a brand-new approach to adding vast numbers of new foreign workers: state sponsored visas. 
Under the State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017, states (or compacts of states) would apply for an initial pool of 500,000 “W” temporary guestworker visas for whatever skill-level of workers they want, regardless of their potential impact on American workers. Each state (plus D.C.) would receive 5,000 visas, then an additional 245,000 would be distributed proportionately based on the state’s population. If some states chose not to participate, their unused visas would be given to those that do participate the following year, ensuring that all the visas are handed out. Critically, unlike even the most flawed of existing guestworker programs, this new program establishes no uniform rules to offer even nominal protections for American workers.

And those big-government, anti-American shitheads still wonder how they got President Trump.  They still wonder why the top two people running for the White House were Trump and Ted Cruz, both of whom the GOPe hate with a burning passion.

What they fail to understand is that I hate them back.  I cannot stand them.  The GOP leadership disgusts me, in the same way that a rotting rat carcass that has been vomited out by a vulture would disgust me.  They are the lesser of two evils, but they are still evil, because in their actions they are really not much different from the Democrats, who are against everything that American supposedly stands for.

You couldn't make this crap up.

Some dipshit professor in California is now claiming that Squirrels are subject to "gendered, racialized and speciesist" media bias.

Teresa Lloro-Bidart, an associate professor of liberal studies at Cal Poly, argues in a recently published postmodernist research paper that eastern fox squirrels are on the receiving end of racially-charged media bias. Lloro-Bidart claims that she worked towards such a conclusion by analyzing the coverage of eastern fox squirrels through “feminist posthumanist,” and “feminist food studies” lenses. 
Lloro-Bidart contends that eastern fox squirrels, which is the most populous species of tree squirrel in North America, are on the receiving end of such bigotry due to several factors, most notably, the “western, modernist,” framework by which humans interpret their behaviors and actions.

If any one of my college professors came at me with this kind of idiotic blather, I would immediately march to the Registrar's office and demand my money back.  This kind of bullshit isn't science, scholastic activity, or even research.  This is the kind of snarky crap formerly made up by the writers of National Lampoon.  I kept going through this hoping it was taken from The Onion or some other ironic rag like that.

Nope.  This is actual real, grade-A bullshit.

At this point, I would be OK with just abolishing the VA.

Just fire everybody at the same time and shutter the entire agency.

On Tuesday, the Appeals Court for the Federal Circuit ruled that the firing of former Phoenix Veterans Affairs (VA) Director Sharon Helman, a convicted felon, was unconstitutional. While this does not mean Helman will return to work, the ruling may strike a powerful blow against VA accountability reform.

So this felon, this convicted felon, who presided over Veterans dying while on a waiting list and covering it up, falsifying documents, just basically making shit up to cover her criminal ass, didn't even get fired for the dead Veterans who piled up under her watch.  Nope.  She got fired for accepting gifts she shouldn't have taken, and even that has been overturned.

In other words, Helman got off scot free from the scandal, but was fired because she accepted $50,000 in gifts without reporting them. The gifts came from Dennis "Max" Lewis, a former VA executive who had mentored Helman before going into private business as a lobbyist with a company that secured millions of dollars in VA contracts. The gifts included a $11,000 family vacation to Disneyland, spa and resort visits, air fare, and concert tickets. Helman was sentenced to two years probation in 2016.

I had to take a fiscal law class before I was allowed to approve DTS authorizations way back in 2008.  If you don't know what DTS is, consider yourself lucky.  But the salient point is that even some guy just approving someone else's travel authorizations had to be taught that you DO NOT TAKE GIFTS.  YOU DO NOT ACCEPT BRIBES.  There are laws that cover what you can and cannot accept, and I couldn't even accept a cold beer from a hotel that I was doing business with.

So this criminal bitch allows Veterans to die while on a waiting list, covers it up, accepts 50K in bribes, and the government insists that she should be set free?

Destroy it all.  It's corrupt.  Rotten to the core.  Unsalvageable.  Blow it to hell and salt the earth it stood on.

It's health care is a joke.  It's administration is criminal.  It's internal processes are that of parasites looking to continue feeding from a host.  Kill it.  Kill it with fire.  

So just in case you hadn't heard

FBI Directory James Comey was fired by President Trump.

About fucking time.  He pretty much destroyed the rule of law in this country, and made damn sure everybody knew that Hillary Clinton was a criminal but that he wasn't going to prosecute her.

Any normal person would have been locked up in Ft. Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks for committing a tiny fraction of the crimes that Hillary Clinton committed.  And yet she's out walking around a free woman still trying to find someone to blame for her electoral loss.  That's due to James Comey.  And quite frankly, if he was getting pressured from above to not prosecute, then he damn well should have come out and said it on the record.  "I didn't prosecute Clinton for her breathtaking amount of criminal activity because that fat cow AG Lynch refused to let me do so, and wouldn't give me any support."  But this waffling and half-truths and maybe-but-maybe-not just damaged the one last part of the government that people had any respect for, and put the entire FBI under the same partisan umbrella that the CIA has been living in for years.

Maybe he was just too small to handle the wave of events.  Maybe he was pressured by the corrupt criminal gang of the Obama administration.  Maybe he couldn't figure out what to do.  In any case, he was the wrong man for the job.

Maybe it's just me

But I'm going out on a limb and saying that the reason there aren't more gay conservatives is because the mindset for gay behavior kind of goes against what makes people conservative.  Much like the mindset for Christian behavior tends to favor conservative behavior.  So when a gay gets upset and starts screaming at kids for advocating Jesus, it's not a big shock to me.  Of course, when it's also the vice-principal of a school, there's probably some deeper issues.

When a protester said Jesus can "set you free from your sin," the principal shot back, "I'm as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don't give a f**k what Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing."

One of the overwhelming characteristics of gay culture is the promiscuity.  I can remember seeing flyers in Seattle for "Bareback Night" at gay clubs.  For those who don't know, that means anal sex without a condom.  And this is in 2001, when STDs and AIDS are well known, not some secret thing that nobody knew about, and gay clubs are advertising sex with random anonymous men in order to bring in customers..  And gay men have been one of the drivers for the AIDS epidemic, due precisely to that promiscuous behavior.

Christianity, on the other hand, preaches against promiscuous behavior.  That whole "Don't have sex before marriage" thing kind of cuts down on bath-houses full of gay men spreading whatever diseases they might have to one another.  Yeah.  I know that seems harsh.  But AIDS was going to be called GIDS before the PC police threw a hissy-fit.  Guess what the "G" stands for?

So you have one culture dedicated to the concept of sexual gratification any place, any time, anyone, and another culture dedicated to the concept of celibacy outside of marriage.

Not too many folks are going to meet in the middle there.  And those that do are the exception to the rule that proves the rule.

Just my random brain droppings.

Stealing my Quote of the Day from Ace's Place

It's Quote #5 in the post.

“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer.”Benjamin Franklin

As Glenn Reynolds likes to say, when you subsidize something, you get more of it.  Subsidize the behavior that makes people poor, and you'll get more poor people.

Calendar lining up

Finally got signed up for a course I should have had years ago.  Lots of things going on in the Summer, because that's when Reservists have time to actually do things.  So basically, from now until next January, I'm going to be hopping around like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.

Expect a lot of linkage from YouTube.  I'd make my own videos, but I hate the way my voice sounds.

Sorry 'bout yesterday

Out of the house by six.  Back by nine.  PM.

Finally changed the *&^%$# spark plugs

I love Honda motorcycles, I really do.  They're damn near impossible to kill, run smooth, get great gas mileage, and last forever.

And two of the four spark plugs are absolute bitches to replace.  But I finally got 'em today.  I think next time I'll just take it to the shop and tell the guys who do it for a living to have at 'em and call me when it's done.

Thursday, May 04, 2017

There's so much wrong here...

"Stealthing"  As in, guys pulling the condoms off mid-sex without telling their partners.

First....  I have to admit that when it comes to hook-up apps, I'm clueless.  I've been happily married since before apps even existed, so when I hear about "Tinder" and "Bumble" I pretty much have no idea what they're talking about.  Until now, thanks to the news reports, and I have to say that I'm a bit less happy with the world.

Second, for the "OMG DAVE!  Sex is COMPLETELY NATURAL!  What is your PROBLEM?!?!?!" cohort that I know exists in the world.  Hey, want to guess what else is completely natural?  Childbirth.

Third, if your sole desire is to hook up with random strangers for a night of anonymous sex, then you're going to run into people as morally depraved as you are, and they might want to do something like take the condom off.  Because at that point the only focus is sexual gratification, not the well-being of your partner.  Do you really think you're going to find Mr. Right on Tinder?  Really?

We've now come to a point in society where people can and do randomly hook up and screw like barnyard animals, and the biggest problem in people's minds is "Oh he took the condom off".  Yeah, just brush off the moral degradation, brush off the mental and emotional issues that random sex with strangers both entails and brings with it.  Naw man, the problem is he took the condom off!

Ladies, if you're having sex with a guy who you only met on Tinder, you have much bigger problems than that.

The GOP once again does what the Democrats want

Rush asks the question "Why are we voting Republican if this is what we get?"

Excellent question, Sir.

Paul Ryan, who's turning out even worse than John Boehner at advancing Republican interests, just gave the Democrats EVERYTHING THEY WANTED in this budget extension.  No, I can't even all it that because we haven't had a budget in close to a decade now.  We've had a series of bills that keep stringing the government along bit by bit.  But the Democrats got everything they wanted, including funding of Obamacare, while they put explicit wording in the bill that they will not fund a fucking wall on our Southern border.

So, to recap - the one single thing that pushed Trump over the top in the election is now explicitly being denied, while everything the Democrats want is good to go.  THAT is the GOP's idea of a good bill?

Republicans have the House, Senate and White House, historic majorities in the states, and they still quiver like little bitches and do what the Democrats tell them to do.

Once Paul Ryan has removed his mouth from Chuck Schumer's cock, I'd like to have a word with him.  In private.  Somewhere nobody can hear him scream.

I feel like a can of smashed assholes

So enjoy some Bill Whittle.

I've had a fruitless argument with a communist who, after declaring that corporations aren't people, refused to even accept the fact that they're made up of people.  But he was a communist, so by definition, he had to real capability of logical thought.  As I said, it was fruitless.

Ragin' Dave's quote of the day, TRUTH edition

From Peter Grant.

Those addicted to illicit narcotics have to come to the same place.  They have to decide that something - life itself, or a partner, or a job, or whatever - is better, and more important to them, than their addiction.  Persuasion, courses, propaganda . . . none of them will work without that elementary, life-changing decision on the part of the addict.  I fear that with the advent of carfentanil, many of them won't have time to make it before the consequences of their addiction catch up with them . . . but it's their choice, no-one else's.  Those knocking themselves out to save them from the consequences of their choice need to bear that in mind.  Death is just as much a correction to the problem of addiction as is deciding to stop.

Emphasis mine.

Throwing money at an addict who doesn't want to change is wasting that money.  A person has to want to quit, and if they don't, then they're not going to.  Like Grant, I'm a former cigarette smoker.  I've also worked in a hospital that had an addiction recovery unit.  The rate of success for that unit was less than 10%, and most of the people in there were court ordered.  Which means that the moment they got out, they went right back to using.

Sometimes, the kind thing to do is just put them in a room with the drugs of their choice and let them go.  Think of the millions of dollars that could go to helping people who actually needed it: car accident victims, cancer patients, trauma victims, rather than pissing those dollars away on the crackhead who continues to use Emergency Rooms as their own private hospital and pharmacy.

You can call me cruel if you want.  You can say that I don't care about people.  But I do care about people.  I care about the people who get less care and help than they need, because the medical care was used on a person who has no interest in getting healthy.  They just want to be able to get the next high.

Garden work

We're downsizing our garden this year.  Too many things won't grow out where we are.  If this were my house instead of a rental, I'd be clearing trees away and making room for the garden to get more light, but I don't own the house.  So we garden on a small patch of ground that gets light.  We tried lots of different plants last year.  Most of it didn't grow, or didn't produce.  Our squash plants were flowering like gangbusters, and we didn't get a single squash from them.

So we shrank the size of the garden, which means pulling up fence posts and re-stringing the fence we use to keep deer out.  I'll be pulling the weedblock off the squash mounds and raking the dirt out across the lawn tomorrow, as well as cutting down a few small trees to open up our back yard a bit.  I'm keeping the larger trees so we have a canopy overhead.

It's been a busy day.  It'll be a busy day tomorrow.  But at least we're getting things done.

Leftist protesters are bought and paid for

Rush lays it out.  Gotta run now, so maybe I'll expound on this later.

Saw this at Ace of Spades

And had to share it:  ESPN demographics switched from Conservative to Liberal before they laid off 100 people.

Specifically, in 2015, the ESPN audience on average skewed Republican across all dayparts, ranging from 12% more Republican (Early News, Late Fringe, Overnight) to 21% more Republican than Democratic (Early Morning). 
In 2016, every daypart on ESPN became less conservative, with Daytime being only 2% more Republican than Democratic, while Late Fringe and Overnight programming became 10% and 12% more Democratic than Republican – a 22 and 28 point shift, respectively. 
The same is true across other ESPN properties. ESPN2 skewed Republican across most dayparts in 2015; in 2016 all dayparts skewed Democratic. Every daypart also switched on ESPN News from 2015 to 2016. 
ESPNU was the only network that retained its mostly Republican audience. ESPN Deportes – the network’s Spanish language channel – became even more Democratic in 2016 than it already was in 2015.

Maybe shitting all over half your prospective audience isn't a good idea, eh?  I know that I've watched less football last year than in any year previous, thanks to the NFL allowing that shithead in San Fran to disrespect the flag while threatening a O-line from Tennessee if he wore cleats commemorating September 11th.

Oh wait, Kaepernick isn't in San Fran anymore, is he?  In fact, he doesn't have a job at all, does he?  You want to know why?  Because no owner and GM wants that kind of bullshit and the negative attention that goes with it on their team.  Because most folks in the NFL understand just how fucking lucky they are to live in a country that makes them fantastically rich while playing a fucking game.  But this is still the NFL, which seems to love pushing Leftist causes while threatening players who dare put their dad's name on their eyeblack.  So, really, screw 'em.

On top of me not watching sports, if I do go find some sports news I refuse to get it from ESPN.  I'll listen to the local ESPN channel here in Richmond in the morning, because that's the local guy doing the local sports thing.  Any of their syndicated shows get turned off, because fuck ESPN for being a proggie shitstain on America's underwear.

So yes, ESPN's viewership became far more Leftist.  But that's not because Leftist viewers were flocking to ESPN while the Right cut their cable.  The Right stopped watching ESPN, and nobody filled that void.  Which means ESPN laid off 100 people this week.  Oh well.  The only one I recognized was Trent Dilfer, because he used to QB the Seahawks.  All the rest?  Don't know 'em.  Because I don't watch ESPN.


Salt ain't bad for ya, folks.

Consuming fewer than 2,500 milligrams of sodium daily is actually associated with higher blood pressure, according to the Framingham Offspring Study report, given today. The American Heart Association recommends consuming no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily, equal to a teaspoon of ordinary iodized table salt. 

High blood pressure is a known risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Hence, lowering salt intake is supposed to lower blood pressure and thus reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. But the study found that supposition to be unfounded. 
Moreover, the lowest blood pressure was recorded by those who consumed 4,000 milligrams or more a day — amounts considered dangerously high by medical authorities such as the American Heart Association.

I eat a lot of salt.  I don't sprinkle it on my foods, but I eat bacon.  I snack on salted peanuts and sunflower seeds.  I eat cheese, which has quite a bit of salt in in.  I add some to every dish that I'm cooking, depending on what flavor I'm looking for.  I have never once worried about my salt intake.  In fact, I've worried that I'm eating too little salt, given how much I sweat in the summertime.

But chalk this up in the category of "Things about which you have not been told the truth."  It can go up there along with "EGGS ARE BAD FOR YOU!" and "EAT MORE CARBS!"  And once again, the next time someone demands that you respect whatever bullshit their pushing " because SCIENCE and stuff!" just remember this.

This is how you get President Trump

ACLU sues a private Catholic hospital for refusing to mutilate a mentally ill woman who thinks that she's a man.  The woman wants her vagina removed.  The hospital rightly refused to accommodate her illness and need for mutilation.  The ACLU stepped in because Stupidity.

This is how you get President Trump.  A woman is not a man.  And a man is not a woman.  You cannot turn one sex into another, no matter how hard you wish and try and click your heels together and pray to the Tranny Fairy.  And normal, sane people are tired of being assaulted and abused for understanding those basic facts.

This is what Marxism always devolves into:

Fascists, commie, Marxist thugs using force to shut people down.  This is why allowing commies and other various flavors of Marxist into government always results in tyranny.

One of the staples of Portland, Oregon —”Portlandia” to TV viewers— is the annual Rose Festival, now in its 82nd year, and it has for several years now featured a kickoff parade, akin to the Rose Parade in Pasadena on January 1 every year. But this year’s parade, scheduled for this weekend, has been cancelled. The reason: It was going to include—gasp—Republicans!And this is too much for the hardened left, which threatens to shutdown the parade by violent means if it includes Republicans. And the city of Portland has caved.

I think the Multnomah County Republicans should still do the parade.  With guns.  Lots of guns.  Guns on their hips, guns in their hands.  And tell the Leftist fascists that they had better bring plenty of body bags, because the GOP ain't gonna pay to bury the Marxists out of their own pockets.

Just a reminder

That Planned Parenthood rips babies apart ion the womb and sells their body parts for cash.

The costs of baby organs increased dramatically in the last ten years, a Planned Parenthood executive said in video released by the Center for Medical Progress on Wednesday 
In 2014, undercover videographers posing as organ procurers captured Planned Parenthood executive Dr. Mary Gatter discussing the cost of "specimens" obtained following abortion. When the pro-life activists mention $50 as the going rate for each specimen, Gatter informs them that costs have jumped over the last decade. 
"You know, you have to pay a little money to use the space," Gatter says.

This is the same evil ghoul who was caught on camera saying that she wanted a Lamborghini from the body parts she was selling.  This video pre-dates the Lambo video.

In order to deny that a baby is in fact a baby while you sell off it's liver, it's lungs, it's skull, you have to not have an actual soul left, what with the selling it to Satan and all that.  Or maybe you do have a soul, and it resembles the sludge at the bottom of a septic tank.  Just foul.

Criminals and Thugs

We just barely missed being ruled by the Clinton Crime Cartel and Clown Show

A Bangladesh government commission was investigating multiple charges of financial mismanagement at Grameen Bank, beginning in May 2012. Muhammad Yunus, a major Clinton Foundation donor, served as managing director of the bank. 
Sajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and permanent U.S. resident, recalled the account of the threatened IRS audit to TheDCNF. The allegations mark the first known instance in the U.S. that Clinton’s Department of State used IRS power to intimidate a close relative of a friendly nation’s head of state on behalf of a Clinton Foundation donor. 
Joy told TheDCNF it was “astounding and mind boggling” that senior State Department officials between 2010 and 2012 repeatedly pressured him to influence his mother to drop the commission investigation.

All socialists are corrupt.  All socialists will use the power of the government to get their way if they can.  And the Clintons are some of the most corrupt socialists you will ever find in America.  

The Prime Minister originally disclosed in general terms the pressure exerted on her son at a February reception in Munich. Sources such as the Dhaka Tribune carried the news throughout the country.
“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said her son Sajeeb Wazed Joy had to face pressure from the US State Department to keep Muhammad Yunus as the Grameen Bank managing director,” the Tribune reported. 
“Hillary Clinton phoned me and exerted the same pressure. Even the U.S. State Department summoned my son Joy three times and told him that we would face trouble,” Hasina added. 
Hasina said State Department officials told Joy that Clinton would not take the matter lightly. 
“Convince your mother,” she recalled Joy quoting officials.

We were thisclose to our country being run by that shitshow.
