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.

Guess what my schedule is like today?

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.

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.

Stefan Molyneux boils down how Climate Change is just a racket

And Gay Patriot points out that it is in essence a religion for those who believe in it.

Molyneux proposes the following thought experiment:
  1. Suppose stockbrokers (or bankers or politicians or oil company CEOs – whomever you view as corruptible) are in charge of calculating some important measure of the world.
  1. Let’s call it the Economy Rate (ER). It could go up or down. The stockbrokers fudge and massage the ER data, as they see fit.
  1. First, the stockbrokers say “The ER is so important! and it’s going DOWN! That’s bad! Give us tens of billions of taxpayer money, and we’ll watch it and figure out what to do.”
  1. But over the years, the ER rises. The stockbrokers say “The ER is so important! and it’s going UP! That’s bad! Give us tens of billions of taxpayer money, and we’ll watch it and figure out what to do.”
  1. But then the ER stops going up. The stockbrokers say “The ER is so important! and it could go UP OR DOWN! With unpredictable pauses! That’s bad! Give us tens of billions of taxpayer money, and we’ll watch it and figure out what to do.”

The same people hysterically screeching about how we're all gonna die are often the same ones buying multi-million dollar beachfront mansions with the money they sucker out of the fools, dupes, and religious converts to Global Changism.  This is why Democrats want to control the language so badly, and why they insist on only being judged by what they say instead of what they do.

When you've lost Politico...

How bad is Obama's Iran deal?  Politico is exposing just how corrupt, stupid and horrible the deal is.  (link goes to Ace of Spades)

By dropping charges against major arms targets, the administration infuriated Justice Department officials -- and undermined its own counterproliferation task forces. 
By JOSH MEYER 04/24/17 05:00 AM EDT 
When President Barack Obama announced the "one-time gesture" of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who "were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses" last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans. 
But Obama, the senior official and other administration representatives weren’t telling the whole story on Jan. 17, 2016, in their highly choreographed rollout of the prisoner swap and simultaneous implementation of the six-party nuclear deal, according to a POLITICO investigation. 
The biggest fish, though, was Seyed Abolfazl Shahab Jamili, who had been charged with being part of a conspiracy that from 2005 to 2012 procured thousands of parts with nuclear applications for Iran via China. That included hundreds of U.S.-made sensors for the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran whose progress had prompted the nuclear deal talks in the first place. 
When federal prosecutors and agents learned the true extent of the releases, many were shocked and angry. Some had spent years, if not decades, working to penetrate the global proliferation networks that allowed Iranian arms traders both to obtain crucial materials for Tehran's illicit nuclear and ballistic missile programs and, in some cases, to provide dangerous materials to other countries.

Basically, Obama handed Iran $150 billion, plus lots of terrorists, arms dealers and other assorted criminals that the prior administrations had worked to put away, and then promised that Iran could do what it wanted.

I'd like to point out that the GOP went along with this debased spectacle, under the Corker maneuver.  The GOP could have stopped it.  They chose not to.  Which is part of the reason why Donald Trump is president today, and not the GOP's anointed child, Jeb.

We won't be able to fix the damage that Obama and the Quisling GOP did.  It will come back to bite us in the ass.

Made me laugh

David over at Musings Over a Pint had this advert up.

I think I need some of those...

Well, this just isn't fair

You want to know why so many musicians are kinda ugly?  It's because that's how we got the chicks way back when.  We weren't football players or jocks, and we most likely weren't rich.  So how can a poor ugly kid get girls?

Rock 'n Roll, man.  Or whatever floated their boat.  You wanna hear some 80's BS that'll make your panties drop?  OK, I'll do that too.  A country song makes your legs go up in the air?  We'll do that as well.

Music was the realm of ugly guys using tunes to get laid.  Hell, it worked for me in spades.  I'm no Brad Pitt, and it wasn't until I joined the Army that I really started putting on muscle.

But what happens when a smoking hot girl learns to rock out on guitar?  Man, that's just not fair.

This here blows right through the "ugly guys" rule in music.

Some folks don't age well

I'm looking up videos of Van Morrison, and that poor guy hasn't aged well.  He hadn't aged well in the 90's either.  He sounded like a mafia guy trying to do beatnik style poetry on "Moondance".

It's jarring to hear, after listening to it from the recordings in the 70's.  I know his voice won't be the same, but dang. 

Jackson Browne (even though he's a massive hippy) still manages to pull off a decent rendition of his hits.  Or at least, he did the last time I saw him, which was a while ago, so as of right now today your mileage may vary.  "Running on Empty" still sounds like the same song, not a spoken-word homage.

Been busy

Got a lot of stuff done, but still, by the time I'm finished all I can do is plop down in my chair and look at the drink I've just made.

I've lived various distances from my place of work before, but this is the first time I've lived an hour away.  Which means that it's roughly two hours of my day spent driving to and from work.  Which eats up a lot of time, that I normally had to do housework, cooking, etc.

I don't think I'll be doing this again.

Add in the fact that I'm convinced most people here in Richmond don't know how to drive.  They just don't.  I think their natural tendency to be polite keeps them out of most trouble (as in "Ooops, let's get back on my side of the road before I hurt someone!") but there's still more people who deserve to be yanked from their jacked-up, shiny, no-dirt-on-the-differential, loud exhaust, SaltLife-stickered, 4x4 penis extensions and beaten until they piss blood, because those assholes seem to be the rudest pieces of shit on the road.

But that's just my observation.

John Brennan is the Domestic Enemy to the Constitution

When you collude with spy agencies of foreign countries in an attempt to get your candidate elected, I don't know what else it can be called.

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. 
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people. 
John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.
In a just world, John Brennan and his flunkies would currently be in jail awaiting trial for their high crimes and misdemeanors.  The fact that they're still out and about, and many of them most certainly still working for the CIA, is a good indicator that the entire concept of America as a country is dead, and the nation is just a shambling corpse waiting for the shooting to start.

This is how it's done

Auburn, AL police tell Antifa shitweasels to take masks off if they want to enter the campus.

I love the little temper tantrum the stupid girl throws after she's forced to unmask.  Nice dropping of the stick there, sweetheart!  It's like "Oh fuck, I can't anonymously beat people now, I'm going home!"

Dear White Men: Democrats want you to die

No.  That's not hyperbole.

The speaker says, maybe I should not say this in public, but when I heard more White men are committing suicide, I almost said “yeah, great!”.  
But he does say it, and the crowd likes it, as he knew they would.
Remember, when a Democrat bemoans the 'loss of civility" in politics today, what they're really wishing for is that you would just shut up while they insult you and verbally abuse you.  It's not that they actually want to be civil.  They just don't want you to fight back.

Antifa Nazis get punched back

About fucking time.

And I'm going to be watching this all day long and giggling:

There's just something about a drugged-out hippy nazi-wanna-be getting knocked the hell out that seems....  satisfying.

Does that make me bad?  Hell no it doesn't.  Go check out where that bat-shit loon was claiming she was going to get "100 nazi scalps".  No, she didn't say that ironically.  She was out there to shut down free speech.  She was out there to assault people who just wanted to have their say.  She's a fascist.  She's a Nazi.  She's a drugged out, totalitarian crack-whore, and she wanted to beat people for disagreeing with her politically.  This thing is the picture perfect definition of anti-American asshole.

And she got knocked the fuck out.  I won't shed one single tear.

I also love that guy's sweatshirt - the one that reads "JESUS will JUDGE YOU!"  Hell yeah.  Punch a hippy for Jesus!

Update - best moniker for that skanky hippy chick I've seen so far:  Moldylocks.  Friggin' brilliant.

Ave Verum Corpus

Holy Saturday.

Today is one of the days that our Lord, Jesus Christ, spent in hell after being tortured and put to death.

Whyinthehell am I up so early on a Saturday?

Well, one, I couldn't sleep for crap last night.  That happens, I guess.  It's been happening a lot lately.  I can't wait to see what my circadian rhythms are like when I'm twice my age.

Two - I'm in the process of taking a class that requires me to first observe a class.  So I have to be up and out early.

So much for a nice relaxing weekend.

Agnus Dei, qui tolis peccata mundi, miserere nobis

I think there can be proof of God that something so horrible to contemplate can be sung with such beauty.

Good Friday.  Might I suggest some prayer?

I think death threats are appropriate in this case

Lois Lerner says she got death threats, wants her testimony sealed forever.

Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court this week that she faces the possibility of death threats if her role in the tax agency’s tea party-targeting becomes public, and asked a judge to forever seal her upcoming deposition in a class-action lawsuit brought by hundreds of groups that were targeted. 
Mr. Lerner and Holly Paz, another figure from the IRS tea party targeting, told the judge they’ve already faced “harassment and death threats” before, and said they fear another media firestorm if their version of events from the tea party targeting were to become public. 
The two women said they are willing to testify, but said they could be putting “their lives in serious jeopardy.”
You used the power of the government against innocent civilians who simply disagreed with you politically.  Your actions gave them no recourse.  You and your bosses made sure you didn't suffer any accountability for your actions, and you skated off scot-free with your six-figure pension, leaving behind the victims of your actions helpless and hopeless.

Death threats are appropriate at this time.  This is what happens when you use the government to abuse people and walk away with no consequences.  There WILL be consequences, of one form or another.  Remove the ability for people to hold you responsible through the courts, and they'll find other ways to hold you responsible.

Personally, if Lois Lerner spent the rest of her life in hiding, afraid to go out in the light of day for fear of people hunting her down, it wouldn't bother me one single bit.  Sic semper tyrannis.

MIT publishes children's book glorifying communism

I don't know what else to say...

MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales. 
Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and "queer politics," was released last month. The thesis of the children's book is that communism is "not that hard," but has not been implemented in the right way.
Gosh, how many more hundreds of millions of people have to die before it gets implemented in the right way?

Things like this are why I can no longer take a college education seriously.  When you pop out of that little Marxist indoctrination chamber with a fancy sheepskin saying you know stuff but you regurgitate crap like this, then you really haven't learned anything of worth.

Please tell me, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, exactly how does this advance anything you're working on at MIT?

One more Ray Charles

It's not just Charles himself, it's his backing band.  There's just so much talent there that it's almost painful.  Same with singers like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin; their backing bands blew the doors off of any joint they played in.

I'd just like to point out

That the one and only time I ever heard Seattle Mayor Ed Murray speak, it made my skin crawl.  The guy sounds like "Uncle Badtouch" from the get-go, and his smarmy, lisping delivery made me want to punch him in the face after two seconds of hearing his voice.

So when I find out that multiple people are accusing him of sexual molestation and pedophilia back in the 80's, it doesn't shock me one bit.

An unnamed man filed a child sex abuse lawsuit against the mayor on Thursday, alleging Murray “repeatedly criminally raped and molested” him when he was a homeless 15-year-old in the 1980s. 
The unnamed plaintiff and two other men gave interviews to the Seattle Times — all telling similar stories about a politico in his late 20s and 30s, who befriended street kids, paid them and had his way with them.
I wonder if Murray had been a Catholic Priest, would the paper be so nice to Murray as they are right now?

Oh, and I love this little touch:

The (Seattle) Times explained why it didn't print the accusations until last week, when claims in the public lawsuit echoed their accounts: 
“Murray denied the accusations to reporters and hired an attorney, who worked to discredit the men largely based on their criminal pasts,” the paper reported. “Neither the Seattle Times nor other media publicly reported the allegations, and Murray’s political career continued to rise.”

So this isn't the first time this has been raised!  Nope, in fact, it was raised years ago, and the media dumped it down the memory hole because progressive politics, y'all!  Who cares how many boys Uncle Badtouch was raping, he's a progressive and he's gonna make Seattle progressive, so all those boys can go pound sand while Uncle Badtouch gets elected!

I wonder, if Murray was a Catholic Priest, if the Times would have accepted the weak explanation that they swallowed from Murray.

Ah hell, I don't wonder at all.  We all know the answer to that.  In the eyes of the media, raping little boys is acceptable if you're a Democrat politician!  Just ask Gary Studds!

I'm pretty sure I've posted this before

But it's been a while, so screw it.

There's more groove in this song than in the entire anthology of the Backstreet Boys and Nicki Minaj combined.

Hello Angry Losers

You can make bullets from just about anything

One of the YouTube channels I keep up with is Taufledermaus, who likes to shoot various things out of a shotgun.  One of the rounds he tested recently came from a candy-maker in Israel who made Barley candies, poured them into a mold of a slug, and came out with...  well...  candy slugs for a 12 gauge shotgun.

Things like this are why banning firearms will never work.  Take away my lead, and I'll shoot you with barley.

Obama administration knew Syria still had chemical weapons

Despite that pathological liar Susan Rice's claims to the contrary.

If this strike was arranged to avoid hitting sarin storage facilities, the question arises: did the Obama Administration know that such depots still existed after its “historic” deal that supposedly removed all Syria’s chemical weapons? 
The signs point to yes.
Hey, remember when that pathological liar Susan Rice testified that Obama had convinced Assad to give up his chemical weapons?

Good times, good times.....

So now we're starting a war with Syria?


Just fuck.

Nobody in Syria likes us very much.  There are factions upon factions upon factions who hate each other with the fire of a thousand burning suns, and they only reason they're not trying to kill us is because they're too busy trying to kill each other.  And when we interrupt them from killing each other, they'll all turn around and try to kill us.

We have just interrupted our enemy in the middle of them making huge mistake after huge mistake.  What the fuck, Trump?  What the fuck, McMaster?  What the fuck, JCS?  Were you people so itching for a fight you had to jump into the middle of the biggest shit show in the Middle East?  When did "The Art of War" go out of style?  Do people not read it anymore?

There is no victory in Syria.  There is no "winning".  We can't "win so big" with Assad, because beating Assad means that Terrorist Group A comes to power, assuming that Terrorist Group B doesn't kill them off first and take the throne.  There is not a single group of people in Syria who are our pals.  Any of them in control of the country is a bad idea.  Helping one over the other will only mean that one group hates us slightly less, but they'll still send terrorists over to blow up Americans when they can.  And the other groups will probably swear blood feud because we didn't give their terrorists priority over Terrorist Group A's terrorists.

You want to help Syria?  You build refugee camps outside of the country and make sure that the insanity of Syria stays in Syria.  Other than that, you build a wall around the country, seal it up and wait for the various terrorists, dictator-wanna-be assholes and the actual dictator to kill each other.  And when there's only one or two people left you tell them "If any of this shit show makes it to our shores, we will bomb your country until it's nothing but rubble from one side to the other.  And then we'll bomb it to make the rubble bounce."

Nice to see someone fighting back

Fauxcahontas Warren (aka Lie-a-watha) goes silent after reports show she only pays women 71% of what she pays men.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to acknowledge Equal Pay Day for the first time in her Senate career after it was reported on Tuesday that women working in her Senate office earned just 71 percent of what was earned by men. 
Warren has used Equal Pay Day, which fell on April 4 this year, in years past as an opportunity to speak out on the gender pay gap. Last year she took to the Senate floor to call Equal Pay Day a "national day of embarrassment" and pledged to continue her "fight" until the pay gap was erased. She gave similar statements on Equal Pay Day in 20152014, and 2013, her first year in the Senate. 
This year, Warren was the only female Democratic senator who ignored Equal Pay Day entirely, and it was not due to a lack of opportunity.

The fight against ProgNazis and other Left Fascists isn't going to be like sniping them from afar and walking away.  It's a knife fight.  Get dirty.  Expect to get cut.  Get in, get close, and stab them until they stop moving.

It only takes one mouth-breathing asshat to screw up traffic

So what do you get when every other car on the road is being driven by a drooling fuckwit with a phone implanted to the side of their face?

You get Richmond, VA and the surrounding areas, apparently.  At least, that's what I see from the seat of my motorcycle.

Working today

Actually, working all week.  Today is the day when I didn't have time to load anything last night, and don't have time this morning.

Blogroll is to the right.

Sent to me by a buddy

Who happens to know a whole load of people named "Dave", so they all have some superlative (or explicative) attached to their name.  There's the guy he calls "Fucking Dave", and I have earned the moniker of "Jesus Dave".

It's a long story.  One that I might tell later if I'm plied with enough whiskey.

But anyway, last night he shoots this to me on my phone:

It made me giggle.  Just a bit.

My wife is making radish kimchee

I say "making" instead of "made" because apparently it's a process that involves several days of fermentation.

This ought to be interesting.  I do love Korean food.

The damage will never be undone

And one of the reasons is that the Marxist press, aka the Obama Sluts and Stenographer Pool, don't want the damage undone.

What’s striking about the Times story is the spin it took. Trump had previously claimed he had been “wire tapped” (quotation marks in his original Tweet), leading to media screams that he prove it. The Times’ own reporting proves that President Trump and his associates were spied on. 
The Times, rather than admit Trump had been vindicated, instead focused its attention on the question of who leaked the reports to Nunes:

There have been multiple admissions from Obama admin officials that they spied on Trump and his team.  From some reports, that spying was going on before Trump won the nomination, and continued up until January 20th.

And the media, Obama's Praetorian Guard, his lapdogs and boot-lickers, the craven, sniveling know-nothing anal warts who spent eight years kissing Obama's ass, are now in full damage control mode for their God, their King and their Emperor, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck.

This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.
Huh.  Go figure.

Gotta add this from Powerline:

When Donald Trump succeeded Barack Obama as president, they went from a gaggle of slobbering groupies to a pack of baying hyenas. Some people approve of the head-snapping, 180-degree reversal, while others don’t. But everyone knows it happened.
I think the description "a gaggle of slobbering groupies" is incredibly kind to the media.
