Government Health Care doesn't work

You want proof?  Just go to your local county clinic.  They still have those, don't they?  Public clinics?  Yeah?

Go get your healthcare there.

Or just watch Steven Crowder demolish Bernie Sanders' vapid arguments.



Probably just watch the video. You'll be happier.

"OMG DAVE, WHY DO YOU HATE COUNTY CLINICS?!?!"

I don't.  I've used them before.  And right now, depending on where you live, they look like a bus stop in rural Mexico or Nigeria, and you'll be the only English speaking person there other than the medical staff.

Yeah.  Call me racist if you want, but if you've ever used one you'll know I'm telling the truth.

More and more, Vox Day is being proven right


I have a problem when Vox Day says that other people can't come over and effectively become American.  I know a lot of immigrants who are more American than some native born people.  But when I read crap like this, I pretty much go on board with his plan to just send them all back.  Here's the quote that got me steamed:  

Owners say they have been accused of betraying their community. Some say they have had to swallow their own qualms about Trump’s contentious immigration policies. 
“A lot of people are saying, ‘You’re Latino. How can you build a wall to keep other Latinos out?’ 
Missing from this discussion:  The fact that as legal business owners, they have a responsibility to follow the law and not aid and abet other people in breaking the law.

So if the Latino community in America cares more about people of their tribe rather than in following the law, then I can't really say that they're American.  They're not.  They're Mexican, or Panamanian, or something else other than a law-abiding American.

So fuck 'em.  Luckily, this guy gets it:

Evangelista-Ysasaga, whose grandparents emigrated from Mexico, said he fielded five death threats one morning alone this week from “random people calling into the office and just screaming.” 
Every sovereign nation has a duty to defend its borders, he told callers. Unfortunately, he said, a “certain segment” of American Latinos have cast supporters of the border wall as “racist.”

If by "certain segment" he means "majority of Latinos in America", then yes, he's correct.  And what infuriates me the most is the fact that the very same people who insist that we have to let anybody cross our southern border are coming from countries where they shoot people trying to cross their southern border.

Go ahead.  Check out Mexico's immigration policy.  I'd love to adopt Mexico's immigration policy here in America.  

Border security work has always been contentious, Anderson said. He recounted Mexicans harassing his workers in profanity-laced Spanish and chucking rocks over a sliver of fencing as they installed lighting. One of his employees donned a bulletproof vest at work every day. 
“It was a rough environment, and I expect it to be more charged now than it has been in the history of working along the border,” Anderson said. “Not only are Mexicans infuriated with the United States, but people in the United States are also infuriated.”

Mexicans are infuriated because we want to close and lock the door.  Americans are infuriated because we're tired of border-hopping wetbacks breaking our laws and then demanding that they be allowed to come into our country, shit all over the place and be supported by our tax dollars.

Every thief, crook and parasite is infuriated when their honey-pot gets cut off.  Too fucking bad.  They had no right to it in the first place.  Mexico can go piss right the hell off.

Yep once again


You know how much I'd pay to view modern art?


That's a trick question.  You have to pay me to view modern art.


Modern art is a bunch of crap.  There's very few "artists" in modern art who actually have any real talent.  Hell, lots of modern music sucks as well.  If the National Endowment for the Arts actually gets pulled, I'll celebrate.

"But Dave, what about community theater and all those types of art!"

I've worked in theater.  I've done small and big.  The amount of money they got from the NEA couldn't have paid for my services as a percussionist.  I know.  I saw their books.  I did a lot of volunteer work for them, shall we say.  If the NEA was supporting local theaters in Lincoln, Nebraska, in their production of "South Pacific", I might be more supportive.  But no, it goes to some brainless SJW in Brooklyn who shits in a corner and calls it art.

Let's not even go into the fact that most "modern art" delves into SJW delusions or repressed sexuality as brought forth by drug-addled lesbians.  "Oh look, I added a glittery purple dildo to a sculpture of a unicorn!  That represents the patriarchy and women's struggle to achieve equality through orgasms!"

No.  It represents a lazy lesbian with daddy issues using a dildo to try to shock people and calling it art.  

And again, you'd have to pay me to view it.  Because it's crap.

Well, yep




Vid.me is live, y'all.  It's not as slick as YouTube, but a whole lot less evil.

Eventually, the Left eats its own

White SJW dies at the hand of a black killer.

Dig this name: El Hadji Alpha Madiou Toure.  That's the name of a good, honest trustworthy young man right there!  Yep!

Call me a racist all you want, but the only time I'm going into an inner city is when I'm carrying a gun and wearing body armor.

HackCoughWheeze

So, I have allergies.  I know this.  They drove me nuts in LA, with all the pollution.  As I was leaving California, part of my joyous celebrating was the fact that I was leaving behind my allergy hell.

And then Virginia said "Hold my beer...."

I did my PT test yesterday, and I was hacking out lung biscuits the entire run.  I was passing pools of water where the edges were yellow from all the pollen they'd collected.  I got on my bike yesterday, ready to go home, and had to dust off the layer of pollen that had collected on it during the day.

I practically gurgle when I try to talk in the morning.  This is getting ridiculous.  Some people asked why I want to move back to North Idaho when I retire.  Because allergy season is two or three weeks of pine trees blowing pollen in the air, and then it's DONE.

Why I hate working on engines

So I'm changing out the spark plugs on my bike.  I get the spark plugs.  I go to the store.  I find the right spark plug socket that fits on the spark plugs (18 millimeter!)  I take everything home, and go to pull the old spark plugs.

The FUCKING SOCKET does not fit into the FUCKING CYLINDER enough for me to FUCKING PULL the FUCKING PLUGS.

This is why I hate working on engines.  You can do everything right and shit still won't work out.  Oh, and not a single fucking store where I live has any 18mm spark plug sockets.  I know.  I've wasted time and gasoline checking.

Guess what I'm looking for online now?

A damn good question

Why aren't Republican bills on infrastructure, tax reform, and free speech lined up like airplanes on a runway?  Because the GOPe leadership doesn't want reform.  They like things the way they are, which is why they were such a shitshow under Obama's administration.  Mitch McConnell doesn't want Obamacare to go away.  Hell, I'm amazed he stopped Merrick Garland's nomination process, but I think that's because he understood that if he didn't, the GOP would be completely finished before the election.

Nonetheless, the Republican inability to deliver a bill that could get a majority in the GOP-led House is a colossal failure, and pretty much undercuts its entire reason for being. For years the congressional GOP leadership failed to deliver on promises to constituents, and offered the excuse that it couldn’t do anything without control of the White House. Well, they’ve got that, so what’s their excuse now? And where are the bills on infrastructure, on tax reform, on free speech?
The congressional GOP’s failure to deliver on its promises is one of the things that led to the election of President Trump. Now they’re still failing. What comes next?

John Fucking Boehner was the epitome of liberal RINO-hood.  He fought against the conservatives in his own party tooth-and-nail, and managed to give Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck just about everything he wanted.  Mitch McConnell did the same in the Senate.  And then here comes Paul Ryan, who just a few years before had been Mitten's VP pick, and what's the first thing he does?  He gives Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck everything he wanted with the CRomnibus bill.

And then they sit around wondering how the hell Trump could have ever won the GOP nomination.

All those Republicans out there shrieking in horror over Trump's budget proposal?  Hey, guess how many budgets they passed under Bathhouse Barry?  ZERO.  Actually, let's make that even simpler.  Guess how many budgets they created and sent to the White House?

FUCKING ZERO!

Maybe if they had been doing their job in the FIRST FUCKING PLACE instead of licking the sweat off of Bathhouse Barry's taint behind closed doors, having an actual budget proposal handed to them wouldn't have been such a shock.

The House Freedom Caucus shot down RyanCare, or RINOCare, or whatever other epithet you want to call it.  Good.  That means the HFC actually understands why the fuck they were voted in and who the fuck voted for them.  Every other squishy GOPe shitbag who made his fucking paycheck by opposing Obamacare and now can't find the fucking BALLS to actually deep-six the damn thing can take a long walk off a short pier while wearing concrete shoes.

The GOP is proving that as a party, they are incapable of actually keeping the promises that they have repeatedly made over the past eight years.  The House Freedom Caucus forced them to actually hold to the values they claim to have, and they're losing their shit about it.  Ryan needs to be removed as Speaker; Mitch McConnell needs to be removed as Senate Majority Leader.  They are better associated with Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck than they are with any actual conservative voter.  And Trump had better get his shit in one sock and realize that the House Freedom Caucus are not his employees.  They're not people he can dictate to.  They are the small group who is actually representing their voters instead of the special interest groups that infest Washington D.C. like genital warts, and if he pisses them off he'll be pissing off the people who voted for him once, but won't do so twice.
