This is big

The people of Iran, as in 2009, are rebelling against the Mullahs and the Iranian theocratic leadership.

However, unlike 2009, we actually have a president who supports them, doesn't constantly kiss the ass of the terrorist supporting turds, and might actually help them become free.

I am reminded on a daily basis how happy I am that Trump is president, because Hillary Clinton would have thrown the Iranian people under the bus yet again, just like that jug-eared fucking shitstain Obama did in 2009.

An $18,000,000,000 tax cut

Has already been affected by Donald J Trump, by cutting regulations that cost us money. (link goes to Instapundit, not WaPo)

Last Thursday, Trump announced the first results of this effort: His administration achieved $8.1 billion in lifetime regulatory savings — and is on track to achieve an additional $9.8 billion in savings in fiscal 2018. Since excessive regulations are a hidden tax on American workers and businesses, that amounts to an $18 billion tax cut.” 

All those people who are still NeverTrumpers?  Fuck them.  Fuck them with a baseball bat covered in rusty barbed wire and then they can go play in traffic, while the rest of us get on with the business of trying to prevent the destruction of this country.

I think the EPA should be located in Minot, ND.

Because the cost of living is much lower there than it is in Washington D.C. which means you wouldn't need to pay people over six figures.

We all know military pay isn't high, but bureaucrats don't come cheap. The average benefit package includes 10 federal holidays, 13 sick days and 20 vacation days — that's four weeks — a year. The benefits alone cost taxpayers just under $23 billion a year. 
The report even suggests that the government has an unofficial minimum wage: $100,000 a year. That's the minimum average salary for 78 out of 122 federal departments and agencies, although some individuals make less. Even so, the report notes, "29,852 federal employees out-earned each of the 50 state governors receiving more than $190,823." 
It used to be people went into government to do good. Now, apparently, it's to do well.
Move the Department of Energy to some place in New Mexico.  Or Arizona.  The Department of Education can build their headquarters in Wyoming.  Move some other department to Mississippi, and another to Nebraska.  All of those places are much, much cheaper to live than Washington D.C., and it will do two things:  Allow you to hire people for less money, and de-centralize the bureaucracy that currently infests D.C.  We can see exactly how dedicated these people are to their jobs when they can't hob-knob with fancy lobbyists at all the right bars and clubs.  We'll see how much they love their jobs when it's -30 with a windchill even lower than that, and they still have to report in to the office.  We'll see what kind of "public service" is offered when the nearest five-star restaurant is an hour drive away.

And quite honestly, if that makes a bunch of these pukes retire, so much the better.

No, Jorge. No they are not.

Jorge Bergolio, the anti-pope, claims that Muslim rapefugees are like "Joseph and Mary".  Sorry Jorge, but your logic is as weak and pathetic as your theology.  Joseph and Mary were not part of a blood-thirsty Satanic death cult, dedicated to the subjugation of the civilized world under the heel of sharia law.  Mary and Joseph returned to Nazareth at the first opportunity.  They didn't stay in Egypt demanding welfare for themselves and their multiple wives and kids. 

Every time Jorge Bergolio opens his mouth, he reminds everyone of just how unfit he is to hold the office he currently occupies.

Just a reminder

Following the post about "education" in California below this one, the publik skool sistim in America is a cesspool of Marxist indoctrination.  The publik skool sistim in America is more concerned about making sure kids feel good than actually educated them, which is  how you get scores of supposedly educated morons and savages waving a diploma.  If you want your children to be educated, don't put them in a publik skool.  The publik skool sistim in America is tainted, corrupted and worthless

Homeschool.  Find a parochial school, or a good Christian school.  Most of all, be involved in your children's schooling.  But do not, under any circumstance, simply send your kid off to school and think that everything is going to be OK.  It won't be.  You'd be better off tossing your child into a pit of feral dogs, because at least then they might learn to defend themselves.  And the person you get back will be stunted, corrupted, and indoctrinated.  I think one big issue of "Millennials" stems from the fact that they've come out of the publik skool sistim, and thus do not know HOW to use their brains.  They've only been told what to think and what to do.  Thus you get snowflakes, cry-bullies, and all the various other liberal stereotypes that the Marxist apparatus churns out.

Gah.  I need more coffee.

Corrupting History

California would rather you know the Baron Von Stuben may have been gay.  How does this help learn the cause and scope of the Revolutionary War?  It doesn't.  But California doesn't really care if you know or understand history, so long as you're OK with a man fucking another man in the ass.

California has become the first state in the union to mandate the use of LGBT-inclusive textbooks in elementary schools and have given parents no way to opt out. The choice has been made for them. It’s the law. 
That law requires a “fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful” treatment of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and lesbian Americans despite the historical insignificance. 
Hey, this historical figure is in this book because they totally liked to go down on the guy next to them!  And this person was a tranny!

“We’re not trying to make anybody gay; we’re not saying there’s an agenda; we’re not saying that these people are better than other people; what we’re saying is this is another group of Americans and they face certain prejudices,” said state publisher Mark Jarrett,
It's not that they faced "certain prejudices", is it?  Because EVERY group in America at some time has faced certain prejudices, but only the current political favorites get the special treatment.  And more importantly, by injecting sexual connotations into every aspect of education, it helps sexualize younger and younger children, which is one of the goals of the Left.  There's a reason the Left defends the pedophiles in Hollywood so vociferously.  So this is a two-fer:  They get to claim historical victim status for their preferred group, and they get to sexualize eight-graders even more than they already are.

This is the same state going bankrupt but still spending hundreds of billions of dollars on a "high-speed" rail that isn't high speed, doesn't go anywhere, and won't be ridden by almost anyone.

I'd say their priorities are fucked.

A mellow Christmas

The Mrs. and I, still having boxes unpacked around the house, and having little to no time for any kind of shopping that isn't house related, went without presents this year.  And quite frankly, it was nice to not have to spend hours shopping.  We sent Christmas cards to friends and family, and that was about the extent of our efforts. 

We went to a Latin Mass in Louisiana on Christmas morning, and then spent the day on the couch doing just about nothing until dinner.  Dinner was bacon-wrapped steaks with asparagus.  Breakfast today was donut french toast with bananas foster instead of syrup.  And bacon.  Of course, there must be bacon.  We're going to do some more shopping for storage containers today, and then finally clean the rest of the boxes out of the car port.  My car has a decent dent in it, from where one of the trees around the house dropped a branch onto the roof.  I was less than pleased.  That tree might just be coming down.

Gloria in Excelsis Deo

[6] And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. [7] And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. [8] And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. [9] And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. [10] And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:
[11] For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. [12] And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. [13] And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: [14] Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. 

Merry Christmas

First, the Coventry Carol.

This song is one of the saddest Christmas Carols I've ever heard.  We should be happy, right?  Jesus is born!

Well, yes.  Born to die, horribly, for us.  And the world attacked him from the moment he was born, as referenced in the second verse.  Not very happy, that.

But as a refresher, quite possibly the most beautiful carol of all time.  Turn the volume up as high as it can go:

Trump called military units around the world to wish them Merry Christmas

Have I mentioned how happy I am that Hillary Clinton is not president?  She would never do anything like this, and you know it.

Donald Trump is spending Christmas at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, or as he calls it, “The Winter White House.” 
Being in sunny Florida did not stop Trump from reaching out to hundreds of members of the armed service around the globe, some in active war zones. Trump spoke via video teleconference to rooms packed full of service members stationed in Qatar, Kuwait, Guantanamo Bay and the USS Sampson in 5th Fleet OPS Underway, according to the pool report.

I want every Clinton voter to kiss my ass.

Running Capitalist Pig-Dog!

So, over on the Sidebar, you'll see a new doo-hicky thingy for  Use my link to buy ammo, I get a small pittance, which I will then use to buy my own ammo.  Unfortunately, I cannot refer myself.  So if you're of a mind to purchase ammo, here's your opportunity!  Hey, you gotta spend that Christmas money somehow, right?

Christmas Eve
