Here's how the dialog went

Me:  I'm not a Southern man.  Too hot.  Want to move up North.

US Army:  LOLROFL HOLD MY BEER!

Me:  What?

Sergeant Major:  Dave, we need you to move.

Me:  What?

Sergeant Major:  We have a position in a command coming empty, and you have to fill it.

Me:  What?

Sergeant Major:  It's in Mississippi.

US Army:  HAHAHAHAHAHAMOVEUPNORTHHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Me:  ^%$#^&*!!!!  %$#@*(^%!!!!!  ^&%^$%#$@#!!!!!!

Dammit, I haven't even gotten around to all the good things about Richmond yet!

Ah well, this is the life I signed up for.

The End Of Prayer Shaming from East Catholic High School on Vimeo.

I think I've posted this before.  Still seems appropriate.

I am not a southern man

So when the mercury is topping 100, with heat indexes of 110-115, it doesn't do me much good.  I'm friggin' wiped out right now.  Went for a short run yesterday morning and couldn't stop sweating for half an hour after I came back.  Woke up this morning, looked at the weather outside and said "Screw it, it's an off day".

I know some folks love this weather.  Bully for them.  I hope they enjoy it.  As for me, I sweat buckets all day.  I want to move back up North.....

Food Stamps + work requirements = WINNING

Guess what happens when you require people to actually DO stuff?


Alabama began 2017 by requiring able-bodied adults without children in 13 counties to either find a job or participate in work training as a condition for continuing to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. 
(....) 
In October 2014, LePage announced that able-bodied adults would have to find work, spend 20 hours per week in a work program, or perform community service for six hours a week. 
Food stamp participation declined 14.5 percent from 235,771 in January 2014 to 201,557 in January 2015, according to the state.

And I can't add anything to this:

The left will never admit it, but there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that many of the people receiving welfare benefits are able bodied, and fully capable of finding a job. We know this, because when they’re given the choice between losing a couple hundred dollars per month in benefits, and finding a job that will earn them enough money to not need benefits, they choose to find work. We’re subsiding millions of people who just don’t want to work. 
And the other detail that the left will conveniently overlook, is that these people are basically siphoning off money from folks who are genuinely in a bad financial place. There would be more money for people who are actually poor.

The "War on Poverty" has been going for decades, and it was wasted over a trillion dollars since it was implemented.  In that time we have yet to make a single dent in poverty.  Maybe it's time to try something else other than massive wealth redistribution, hmmmm?

Women's March embraces cop killer and domestic terrorist

But that NRA ad was causing violence!  Unlike the people Women's March is celebrating who actually killed cops in a violent manner.  See, it wasn't violence-violence, got it?

"Happy birthday to the revolutionary #AssataShakur!" the verified Twitter account for the Women's March tweeted. "Today's #SignOfResistance, in Assata's honor, is by @Meloniousfunk." 
The tweet included a painting of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, with the slogan "A woman's place is in the struggle."

Chesimard is a member of the Black Liberation Party, a racist, anti-American organization.  She's committed multiple felonies, and was finally busted for killing a New Jersey State Trooper.  She escaped from jail and has been hiding out in Cuba since 1979.
So to recap:  NRA ad talking about fighting back with "the fist of truth" - BAD.
Killing cops, committing multiple felonies, hiding in Cuba:  GOOD.
Or at least that's the way the Women's March sees it.

John McCain has brain cancer

And I don't care.

I'm not going to sit around talking about how awful it is.  In fact, the moment I heard the news I was a bit relieved, because that means John McCain isn't going to be sitting in the Senate for some time, fucking things up, shitting on Conservatives, screwing with Trump's agenda, and making back-door deals with Democrats that stab the GOP faithful in the back.

I never truly wanted him dead, but I sure as hell wanted him out of the Senate, where he's been ensconced for so long that he's grown barnacles.  And the entire time he's been a two-faced, greedy, corrupt lying piece of shit.  Some of the worst attacks against the Tea Party came from John McCain, because anything that might disrupt his gravy train couldn't be allowed to exist.

It sucks he has brain cancer.  It sucks that anyone has brain cancer.  I didn't want him to get brain cancer, unlike most Democrats.  But I'm not going to sit around weeping and crying.  Sometimes in this world you have to suffer because God requires you to do penance for your sins.  If that's the case, then this suffering is just one small, tiny amount of penance for John McCain.

Flipping through radio stations yesterday

As I went on my rounds of various things I had to accomplish, and came across a sports station.

Turns out it was ESPN.

I found that out after two minutes when, after listening to some worthless wanking asscannon go on and on about Colin Kaepernick, I shouted "Oh, FUCK YOU, you dumb-ass fucking fucker!" and changed the channel.  Looked up the station numbers after I got home and found out what station it was.  I had not listened to the ESPN in so long that I didn't have it programmed into my new car; just hitting the "scan" button got me there.  And it reminded me of why I no longer have ESPN programmed into my car.  I do not want or need to be lectured on politics by some brain-dead fuckwit who couldn't find Idaho on a map.

ESPN can just hurry up and die.

If the GOP loses control of congress in 2018, this is why


They refuse to do what they promised to do for seven years.

You know, I think the longer the bill is out there, the more conservative Republicans are going to discover that it's not repeal, and the more that everybody is going to discover that it keeps the fundamental flaw of Obamacare. 
It keeps the insurance mandates that cause the prices to rise, which chase young, healthy people out of the marketplace, and leads to what people call adverse selection, where you have a sicker and sicker insurance pool, and the premiums keep rising through the roof.

When the GOP dies, they will have nobody but themselves to blame.

Hmmmm



I say "Yep".

More news the Democrat Media Complex won't talk about


Haiti Official who exposed Clinton Foundation corruption found dead of "suicide".

Why is it that so many people around the Clintons seem to commit suicide?  I mean, the wire diagram of suicide folks that surround the clintons looks more like a labyrinth than anything else.

Eberwein was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years. “The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year. Eberwein was due to appear on Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors. But this “suicide” gets even more disturbing… 
Eberwein was only 50-years-old and reportedly told acquaintances he feared for his life because of his fierce criticism of the Clinton Foundation.  His close friends and business partners were taken aback by the idea he may have committed suicide. “It’s really shocking,” said friend Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.” 
During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds. Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of the shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.  But, according to Eberwein, it was the Clinton Foundation who was deeply in the wrong – and he intended to testify and prove it on Tuesday.

Kinda hard to testify with a bullet in your skull, innit?

MemeWars

Since CNN, and the Left in general, seem to freak out at every little meme that comes at them...

Just saw a red fox trot across my yard

I don't have chickens or other outdoor type animals here, so I don't have to worry.  But now I know why the dog keeps peeing on the same spot over and over and over.
