It is ten degrees where I live right now.

And normally, I wouldn't think twice of it.  Because if I were in Idaho, or Wisconsin, or even Washington state, ten degrees is normal.

I'm in Mississippi.  Holy hell, people, where is that Global Warming I was promised, huh?  There is snow, ice, and near-record low temps down South right now.  As the Mrs. says, "I don't know where we are, but this can't be Mississippi, because that's too far South for this crap!"

Ten degrees and snow on the ground.  Huh.  We're burning through propane in our furnace like it's going out of style.  These houses aren't made for this kind of cold, and it shows.

Dolores O'Riordan died recently

I don't think I can describe just how much, way back when I was a singing and playing long haired hippy, that I wanted to take dear Dolores and bed her until she warbled in a higher octave.

Ah well.  Another crush of mine, gone.

Simple things

So the Mrs. and I like to make our own sausage.  The grinder doubles as a stuffer, which can get somewhat frustrating.  Or at least it was, because we ordered a vertical sausage stuffer and it showed up yesterday.

I get a little giddy over simple things.  Yeah, it's a kitchen gadget, but it makes my life much easier.  So tonight, we make andouille and hot Italian.  Plus work on the jalapeño-cheddar recipe.

Make Mine Freedom

I've posted this multiple times previously.  It's worth posting again.

This is something that kids need to watch, over and over.

The Mrs. and I make our own sausage.  We started with Italian back when we were stationed in Puerto Rico.  We added bratwurst when we couldn't find any sausage that didn't have some form of soy or sugar added to it in Wisconsin.  We have a bunch of different types we make, and in Virginia we encountered Cheddar and Jalapeño sausage at various BBQ joints.  Now down here in the South, where we live, we haven't found any C&J sausage.  So.......

We made three different test batches.  And then we smoked them.

We found the recipe that we want to play with.  Maybe I'll post more updates later.

Teenagers are eating Tide Pods?

Folks, this is called "cleaning the gene pool"

"I cannot believe I'm about to do what I'm gonna do," YouTuber Marc Pagan said before sinking his teeth into a Tide Pod. "I'm just bored, so I'm doing something right now that is completely stupid."

Why can't he jack off to internet porn like a normal teenager?  Feh.  Let these dumb ones die off. 

In your life, you WILL be an example.  You will either be an example of what to do, or what NOT to do, but you will be an example.  Every species has those individuals who are too dumb to continue living.  Normally they self-select themselves right out of the genetic lottery.  Let.  That.  Happen.

Liberalism is a mental disorder

This bundle of gobbledygook and nonsense is the perfect example.

Why are the pink pussyhats on the outs?
The reason: Apart from the vulgarity of it all, the colorful head apparel excludes transgender women and gender nonbinary individuals who lack female genitalia — as well as women of color since their genitals are more likely to be darker colors than pink, the Detroit Free Press reported. 
“I personally won’t wear one because if it hurts even a few people’s feelings, then I don’t feel like it’s unifying,” Phoebe Hopps, founder and president of Women’s March Michigan and organizer of anniversary marches Jan. 21 in Lansing and Marquette, told the Free Press.

A)  If your feelings are hurt because the hat someone else is wearing doesn't exactly match the color of your genitalia, you are mentally ill.
B)  "Transgender women" are not women.  They are men, with a mental illness.  If you are upset because the hat someone else is wearing is representative of genitalia that you do not possess no matter how hard you try, you are mentally ill.
C)  If you are wearing symbolic genitalia on your head as a political statement, you are mentally ill.

And trust me, all you precious butthurt snowflakes - all women are pink on the inside.  If you classify women by the color of their outer labia, you are mentally ill.

Haiti is a shithole. That is not the story.

Ask any of the US Soldiers who were sent there for hurricane relief.  It's a shithole.  That's just what it is.  The Dominican Republic, which is ON THE SAME ISLAND, is not a shithole.  It's not where I would want to live, but people go there on vacation all the time.  Don't drink the water, and be careful of the food, but the people are very nice.  A little crazy, but nice.

Africa, in general, is a shithole.  That continent will attempt to kill you in multiple different ways every single day.  Bugs.  Disease.  Animals.  Other people.  They all try to kill you in Africa.  Not only do I not want to live in Africa, I don't want to visit any more of Africa than I've already seen.  My life isn't going to go on forever, and if I'm going to visit some other country it's going to be one where I don't have to constantly watch my back.

Detroit is a shithole.  It's quite honestly the most depressing American city I have ever been in.  Boarded up houses, boarded up businesses, the place just LOOKS depressed from the moment you set foot on the sidewalk.  The military center I went to was dilapidated and depressing.  Trying to find recruits in Detroit is almost a lost cause.  It's a shithole.  Thanks, Democrats!

If Donald Trump named some countries as shitholes, he's only speaking the truth.  And the Democrat Media Complex is going full steam ahead in their hysterics, because that means they don't have to talk about how indictments are finally coming down in the Clinton Uranium scandal.  No, Clinton herself isn't indicted yet, but it's one more step in taking that felonious hag down.

An 11-count indictment was handed out on Friday connected to the alleged Russian bribery scheme involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration, and Uranium One. 
The charges are against Mark Lambert, who is the "former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad." Lambert 54, of Maryland, was charged with "one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering," the DOJ said in a statement.

So now the hysterical wailing and gnashing of teeth about the word "shithole" kind of makes sense, doesn't it?

So, Mississippi.  Rather a poor state, all things considered.  Lots of trailer parks around here, and I drive by several of them on my way home.

And many of those dilapidated trailers have shiny cars with 22-inch rims and custom paint jobs parked in front of them.

Folks, 22 inch rims are not cheap.  Tires for those rims are not cheap.  Custom paint jobs are not cheap.  If you've sunk $10k or more of glitzy crap into a 1990's Lincoln Towncar, and you're living in a trailer, you have no one to blame but yourself for your living conditions.

A car will never be as valuable as it is today.  Cars depreciate.  They are not investments.  They don't make you money, unless you're buying junkers and fixing them up.  But driving your pimp-mobile around while living in a trailer doesn't make you cool.  It makes you a moron.

I wonder where they would be living if they took the money they've wasted on pimping their ride and put it into a house somewhere.  I spent less on my car than they spent on all the shiny bullshit and crap they put on their cars.  But I'm living in a rather nice house, and they're living in a rusty tin can in a park on the side of the highway.

Oh, and by the way, 22-inch rims on any car makes you a moron.  You're destroying the most important aspects of your car's performance:  THE TIRES and their connection to the road.  Cars are designed to have a certain amount of rubber between the road and the suspension.  When you screw with that, you screw with your ride.  When you screw with your ride, you shorten the life of your suspension and make the ride that much worse.  Whenever I see 22 inch rims, I see a person who has absolutely no clue what the mechanics of driving actually are.

A damn good question

When I lived in Seattle, getting from Seattle to Tacoma to Olympia on I-5 was a chore.  Not horrible, but a chore.  Lots of traffic.

Last time I went to the Puget Sound area, I-5 was locked up tighter than the 101 in Los Angeles, and the 405 around Renton was just as bad if not worse.  

Waaaaaaay back when I was a yoot, we would visit relatives in Seattle.  Back then, if you wanted to "get out of the city", you drove to Tucwila, which is just a little bit south of Seattle.  Now you can drive from Seattle to down past Tacoma and it's concrete buildings all the way.  The open areas are gone.  They've been built over and up in order to accommodate the large amount of people moving to that area.

So, how many immigrants are enough?  How many more people do we need to add to this country?  When is enough, enough?  Ask that to the next people screaming that we need to allow the Dreamers, a huge portion of whom cannot even speak English after being in this country for a decade or more, to stay and continue to suckle off the government teat while voting for Democrats.

Went to Greenville a couple weeks back

to check out a brewing shop.  Drove by lots and lots of cotton fields.  All fallow right now of course, but here and there were clumps of cotton plants that hadn't been harvested, so you could tell what crop had been grown.

So this made me chuckle.

That is all.

Poison Tree, Poison Fruit

All games last weekend saw double-digit viewership losses.

As for me, I haven't watched a single game after the temper tantrum the NFL threw back in September.  And I won't be watching any more games, period.

Fuck the NFL.  I can't wait to see how much TV revenue drops off next year.   Let them enjoy the fruits of the tree they planted.

But, but but... UNPOSSIBLE!

I am told by Progressives EVERY SINGLE DAY about how easy it is to buy a gun!

Federal agents posing as criminals were unable to purchase any firearms from legitimate online marketplaces despite dozens of attempts over a two-year period. 
Between July 2015 and November 2017 investigators from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), following up on a congressional request, tried to make the illegal private gun purchases through a number of online forums and market places. They made 72 attempts over that time but couldn't complete a single sale using legitimate sites.

Then again, given that most Progressives have the brain function of a tape-worm, it doesn't shock me that they're wrong.

This is what success looks like.

Regulations at lowest count since records began being kept in 1970's.

The next time to meet a NeverTrump "conservative", ask them who else other than maybe Ted Cruz would have done this.  Donald Trump isn't a politician.  And that's what they hate about him.

Still not tired of Winning.

Fuck you, Apple

My Apple MacBook Pro has managed to do something that every other computer I have owned never did - have a malfunctioning CD drive.

Yep.  The expensive computer with a METAL SHELL has managed to break a piece of hardware that the cheapest, plastic HP computer never did.  So much for that construction, you fucking asswipes.  I paid good money for a good computer.  What I got was....

Well, hell if I know.  Parts of it are good.  Parts of it suck.  Like the CD drive.  Which has functioned flawlessly in every other computer I've ever had. 

After Steve Jobs died, Apple's quality has gone to shit.  They've slowed down older iPhones.  Their products have taken a steep nose-dive.  This computer has outlived it's warrantee, so there's that, but I didn't pay a lot of money to have a computer outlive it's warrantee, I spent a lot of money to have a computer that wouldn't have BASIC FUCKING COMPONENTS BREAK.  And that's on top of the issues of trying to make it play nice with anything that isn't another Apple product.

My next computer won't be an Apple.  I was never an Apple fanboi, I just hated Microsoft Vista with a burning passion and refused to play Microsoft's little games with their operating systems.  There's enough variety out there now that I don't need to piss around with either Microsoft OR Apple, and they can both go fuck themselves with a hot poker for all I care.

Administrative duties

It's pretty much a rule that the higher up you go in any large organization, the more administrative your job will be.  In the Army, this rule applies double.  I want to be out running through the woods with a weapon in my hands, but instead I have to sit at a desk and do all the administrative crap that makes it possible for all the young bucks to do the job I want to do. 

This month, it seems that admin workload got doubled. 

So enjoy some more music from my mis-spent youth.  This band made it big with a couple of songs but never seemed to do much after that.

Well, YEAH.

Republicans care about voter fraud no matter the circumstance.  Democrats only care about voter fraud if it hurts Republicans.

That's because Democrats only win the elections they can steal.

As Kane told the Washington Times, "There’s different concerns in both camps. Republicans really do appear to be super-concerned about fraud and Democrats not so much. Democrats really appear to be concerned about the electoral implications, not so much fraud."

There's a reason we can't vote our way out of the mess we're in.  Because that assumes that the people on the other side of the aisle care as much about integrity and morals as we do.  And as has been shown time and time again, the Democrats don't give one single fuck about integrity or morals.  They only care about power, and using it against their enemies, the conservative patriots who still live in this country.

What, you think that might be too much?  It's not even close.  The Left in this country hates you.  It hates you and wants you to die.  Don't take my word for it, just go listen to them yourself.  They hate you because you refuse to be controlled.  They hate you because you think for yourself, instead of imbibing their poisonous groupthink.  They hate you because you do not bow down to their God, the Government.  And they want to do to you what Leftist groups have done to their enemies all over the past 150 years or more - round you up and exterminate you.

Don't take my word for it.  Just go listen to them for yourself.

The article ends with this: 

If you believe in a nation led with the consent of the governed, then you believe in crushing voter fraud no matter what. Yet the Left does not.
The Left has absolutely no interest in the rule of law at all, unless they can use that to attack conservatives.  Just look at how the Left treats multiple felon Hillary Clinton and her pack of criminal deviants.  They love them.  Because Hillary and Co., which includes that jug-eared shitstain Obama, used their power in the government to attack Conservatives in America.  Who gives a shit if they broke the law, right?  They got POWER! 

This is why there will be a civil war in this country.  Because one side cares about the Constitution and the Rule of Law.  That's us.  The Left doesn't.  In fact, the Left considers the Constitution and the Rule of Law to be an impediment to their ruling this country.  Buy more ammo.

Happy New Year

Let's see how much WINNING we can pack into 2018, shall we?
