Good Question


Why, exactly, does the IRS have fully-automatic assault weapons?

Because they want to use them.  On you.

The GAO looked at how 20 federal agencies spent money on firearms and ammunition, and how those agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services,  Environmental Protection Agency and the IRS, practiced “inventory control” for their guns and ammunition. But another question raised by the GAO analysis is not answered. Some of those agencies, such as ICE, FBI, US Marshal Service, Secret Service, etc. need to be well armed on the roles of protecting the public. Other agencies such as the IRS and the NIH seem to be over-weaponized, a frightening concept for a government that is supposed to serve the people, not vice versa.

Federal Marshals?  Obviously need guns.  Border Patrol?  I'd give them fully armored vehicles with M2's mounted on a turret to take care of the Coyotes and the cartels.  But the National Institute of Health?

The IRS?  Excuse the hell out of me, but the IRS has already shown it cannot be trusted with any kind of power.  Why the hell does the IRS have fully automatic assault weapons?

Note to grabbers, unlike your false claims about semi-automatic weapons such as AR-15s, what the IRS has are automatic weapons, that’s fifteen machine guns with 56,000 rounds. Who do you think they will be using them on?

This is just another part of the reason why I will never ever ever ever ever give up my guns.  I will not register them.  They all got lost in the Great Canoeing Accident of 2015, so I don't even have them anymore.

The government is force.  Apparently, they want more force.  Just who do you think they'll be applying that force TO? 

This was the soundtrack to my day



Rather lovely, innit?

I'm not looking at the news this morning

I'm making pancakes.  Banana pancakes.  And bacon.

I'd sleep in, if only my body would let me.  But that's about a decade past my abilities, I think.

Yet ANOTHER citizen killed by an illegal alien

This guy was a naturalized citizen.  Came here legally.  Became a cop.  Got killed in the Sanctuary State of Kalifornia.

The suspect sought in connection with the murder of a California cop earlier this week is in the U.S. illegally, authorities revealed on Thursday. 

The unidentified man alleged to be behind the slaying of Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33, “is considered armed and dangerous,” Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said during a news conference on Thursday afternoon, vowing that the manhunt would “relentlessly continue.”

Meanwhile, the Democrats refuse to spend $5 billion for a wall.  Democrats choose illegal aliens over Americans, every single day of the week. 

Heroin and fentanyl pouring over the unsecured border?  Democrats don't care.  They choose illegal aliens over Americans.

Thousands upon thousands of child sex slaves being trafficked over the border, and used to fund the drug cartels?  Democrats don't care.  They choose illegal aliens over Americans.

Gang members, rapists and criminals coming into America thanks to an unsecured border?  Democrats don't care.  They choose illegal aliens over Americans.

Democrats have proven time and time again, by voting against a Wall, by making cities and states into "sanctuary" for illegal aliens, by voting against Kate's Law, by attacking ICE and the Border Patrol, that the Democrat Party and all of its members care more about illegal aliens than they do about American citizens.  The blood of that cop is on the Democrat Party's hands.  The blood of thousands of child sex slaves is on the Democrat Party's hands.  The blood of the women who get raped by the Coyotes in the desert are on the Democrat Party's hands.

And don't think the GOP is free of this either.  If they actually did what their voters wanted this problem would have been taken care of years ago.

I'd call the media a pack of rabid whores, but I don't want to insult whores like that.

First the media was howling about how Trump didn't visit the troops in Iraq.  Unbeknownst to the drooling fuckwits of the media, as they were tweeting out their rage and hatred, he was actually on a plane to Iraq to go visit troops.  And while the media pantsed themselves once again, they decided that it would be a good idea to rage-tweet about how the Troops who got autographs from the President were somehow a bunch of naughty boys and girls who should be punished.  By more rage-tweets from the media.

No, really.

It's not hard to understand why the media is hated and viewed as untrustworthy. There is an unprecedented amount of media labor directed at assaulting the president regarding any trivial issue. President Trump's recent trip to visit Iraq really triggered the crazy to come out. Maybe it was because the media enjoyed wagging their finger at the president because he hadn't visited the troops? Whoops. 
In particular, there was concern that Trump signing MAGA hats for the troops during his visit was some kind of Hatch Act violation or he was tricking the dummies in the military into being part of his political campaign? This is really, really reaching, don't you think?
Missing from CNN's hot take:





CNN is a clown car full of drooling retards being driven into a dumpster fire in the middle of a toxic waste dump.

I'm all for it

Dump the FBI.  We don't need a group of corrupt criminals with the ability to ruin Normal's lives while ignoring the massive criminal undertakings of the politically connected.

Slow Day at Work

But 'tis the season for that, I guess.  That and the government shutdown, which isn't really all that much of a shutdown.  I'd be happy to see it continue for a few weeks months as long as it takes to get a wall.

Happy Boxing Day!

I spent all of yesterday ignoring news and politics.  So no post until later, because I don't have any thing to say.

I know.  Odd.

Merry Christmas

The Feast of the Nativity of our Lord and King, Jesus Christ.

Do yourself a favor - plug this in to your music system, and just turn it up.





And finally, because as much as this season is about joy and hope, it's also about reality:



There's more beauty in these three songs than in all of this year's Grammy winners combined.

I'm glad I left Seattle when I did

When we left in 2004, the "finding used heroin needles" issue was mostly contained on Capitol Hill and First Hill.  Now it's pretty much spread to the entire city, as the socialists run amok with predictable results.


Seattle is under siege. Over the past five years, the Emerald City has seen an explosion of homelessness, crime, and addiction. In its 2017 point-in-time count of the homeless, King County social-services agency All Home found 11,643 people sleeping in tents, cars, and emergency shelters. Property crime has risen to a rate two and a half times higher than Los Angeles’s and four times higher than New York City’s. Cleanup crews pick up tens of thousands of dirty needles from city streets and parks every year.


When you subsidize something, you get more of it.  It really is that simple.  When you make it easy for drug addicts and homeless people to congregate in an area, and give them money and food and all the things they want, you end up with more drug addicts and homeless people.

At the same time, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal, the Seattle metro area spends more than $1 billion fighting homelessness every year. That’s nearly $100,000 for every homeless man, woman, and child in King County, yet the crisis seems only to have deepened, with more addiction, more crime, and more tent encampments in residential neighborhoods. By any measure, the city’s efforts are not working.

Whoa, whoa whoa....  let's not just skip over that ONE BILLIONS DOLLARS.  If they're spending $100,000 per homeless person to "fight homelessness", where the hell is that money going?  I'm willing to bet it's going into the same place that it goes in every socialist-run location:  Into the pockets of the politically connected.

Read the entire piece.  Seattle is a laboratory for what occurs when leftists/socialists/marxists take control of a city and begin to operate based on their ideology instead of reality.  Running a city on unearned moral superiority using other people's money to fund your ego never works.

My body is defeating the virus

And it is now in the "expel all the collected gunk" phase of this particular illness.  Which is an improvement over the "feel like you're suffocating" phase of Thursday and Friday.  Although it's rather gross.  Luckily, we're somewhat rural out here, so when I walk out the back door and expectorate a lung-biscuit into the bushes there aren't any neighbors to complain about it.

We're doing some pet-sitting for friends who are Christmas-ing in Texas.  They have a tortoise.  I've never owned a tortoise, so this was rather new for me.  Apparently they like heat, humidity, and lots of greens.  He's got us trained rather well at this point.  He comes out, perches on his food dish, and he gets tasty greens to nom on.  It's a rather small tortoise for now, so it's not much of an issue.  And cleaning up after him is easy. 

He really likes spinach. 

Off I go to hack up another hairball.

Uncomfortable truths

Yes, IQ does matter.  Now think of this in relation to the Islamic world, where marrying your 1st cousin is an accepted practice, which brings along with it a whole host of genetic issues as well as lowered IQ.

The link goes to an article on why IQ matters to an economy.  Read it all.  And then ask yourself why bringing in millions of people from lower IQ nations, who are relatively uneducated and unable to assimilate into our culture, is a good thing.

On Trump removing troops from Syria

At this point, any time Americans are deployed overseas, two questions need to be asked:

1 - What is the objective?
2 - What are the markers by which we can see we have achieved that objective?

If you cannot answer both questions, don't send the troops.  Period.

And I am not the first person to notice that many of the people who howled about illegal wars are now howling about Trump pulling troops out from a country that we never declared war on.

Well, it looks like it'll be antibiotics

When I went to the Doc on Wednesday, he gave me a prescription for antibiotics and said "If you're not improving by Saturday, start taking them."

Based on how I feel today, I will be taking them.  We'll find out tomorrow.

I am ready to leave the South.  I've never had as many issues with illness as I have below the Mason-Dixon line.  I used to go down for a few days, pop back up and be good to go.  Nowadays it's weeks of respiratory problems.  I attribute that to an allergy season that never ends.  My body never fully recovers, it just switches to another fight.  Grass pollen, tree pollen, weed pollen, leaf mold, rinse your sinuses and repeat.  This cannot go on forever without things starting to break down.

I guarantee you that kid has already been used as a sex toy.

AKA, the Homo End Game in One Photo.

The Gay Movement is really good at demanding that we accept them, and by "accept them" they mean also accepting every kind of perversion as good and natural, and if we don't then we're homophobic.

Which means, you must accept this.

No.  Just no.  This is the end game.  This is the cult of the orgasm, where anything is excused so long as it gets you off and makes you ejaculate.  It is wrong.  It is evil.

No, I will not accept it.  And that makes me a good man.

Yeah, pretty much

Rush Limbaugh rips into the GOP.  And they deserve it.  The GOP is a bunch of sniveling, crying, back-stabbing ahitstains on the underwear of America, and they just proved it once again.

In Dante's Inferno, the 9th circle of hell is reserved for traitors, and you have Judas, Brutus, and Cicero constantly being chewed upon in Satan's three mouths.  Paul Ryan needs to join them.  John Boehnor sold his soul to Satan years ago, so he'll be down there as well.  Jeff Flake?  What a pathetic Democrat. 

The more I see of the GOP, the more I realize that this country might just be well and truly fucked.  The Democrats hate this country.  That hate the constitution.  They hate all the rights we have.  And the GOP is too weak and pathetic to stop them.

Allergies lead to mucous.  Mucous leads to virus breeding grounds.  And that leads to Dave sitting his ass on the couch with a roll of tissue to try to stem the stream of shot currently exiting his nose.

I am ready to head back north.

Radical Communist and Antifa soi-boy Joseph "Jose" Alcoff deserves to have a light shined upon him

Because cockroaches don't do so well in the light.

  • The Daily Caller News Foundation has determined that an influential Antifa leader uses aliases to spread radical and often violent rhetoric while concealing his actual identity.
  • Joseph “Jose” Alcoff works with congressional Democrats as part of his day job as a manager with a DC-based advocacy group. But he spreads socialist and communist propaganda when going by the name “Jose Martin.” 
  • Identifying as “Chepe,” Alcoff advocates for the violent overthrow of the government and for the murder of the rich. He has relished the mainstreaming of Antifa’s militant tactics in the Trump era.
  • A 2017 book identified Chepe as an organizer behind Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group that mobbed Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home in November and ran Ted Cruz out of a restaurant in September. 

I have an idea....

This "man" is an admitted Domestic Enemy of the Constitution of the United States.  How appropriate that he's also part of the Democrat Party Machine, since they are also Domestic Enemies of the Constitution of the United States.

Let the rat-bastards burn in hell.

And yes, this Antifa soi-boy looks just like you would expect him to look.

That's a pretty good summation





In short, it's corrupt Democrats breaking the law to be more corrupt.

I'm ready to leave the South

Allergies.  Allergies, allergies, allergies.  I'm on medication, I do a sinus rinse every day, and right now my throat feels like razor blades and my nose is dripping.  Because the leaves are falling, it's been raining, and there's leaf mold everywhere.

Hell, there's just plan mold everywhere.  We have to clean our deck off a couple times a year to keep the mold from making things too slick, and oh by the way this deck sits in the sun.  It's not exactly shaded.  And it gets mold.  Everywhere.

I'm surrounded by trees.  Those trees are dropping leaves.  The leaves are molding.  And that mold is trying to have sex with my mucus membranes via its spores, causing me to cough, sneeze and wheeze.

Send me back up North, please.  Give me my pine trees and my mountains.  I'm done with this Southern experiment.  I'll take snow over allergies any day of the week.

The bifurcated rule of law

Like I said before - we no longer live under the rule of law.  Not really.

This painful to admit it, but we need to grow up. There are two sets of law in America today, meaning there is no rule of law in America today. Oh, there are statutes, and there are courts, and there are agencies full of people with guns willing to enforce the will of aspiring tyrants, but there is not rule of law. There is only power, theirs and ours. Time to get woke to the undeniable fact that the Fredocons deny up and down. Justice is no longer blind. Her blindfold is off and she’s picking favorites. 
You are not one of her favorites.

Someone out there has said that Trump's greatest power is the ability to make his enemies reveal themselves.  The DOJ has revealed themselves, alright.

If you change your own oil, check this out

There are really only three companies in the world that produce oil filters, and then other companies buy them and put their name on them.  My mechanic buddies would always tell me to avoid Fram and buy a Wix filter.  In their words, the Fram filters were cardboard crap.  This video explains oil filters better than my buddies could.  After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.



I've been putting Wix filters on the bike.  Since the car is under warrantee, it gets whatever filters the dealership puts in.  But once I start changing that oil as well, it'll be getting a Wix.

Most college degrees out there aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

Or parchment, if you prefer.  Take the writer of that piece, for example.  This woman was lied to, over and over, by people who told her that a college degree was some sort of magic bullet.  So she got two degrees.  A Bachelor's in English, and a Master's in "Creative Writing".

WTF is "Creative Writing", and exactly how many creative writing jobs are floating around out there?

So now she's working as a waitress.  Because her degrees are worthless, and probably will be for the rest of her life as she pays off her student debt.

In October of 2017, the stress and calls from unpaid creditors forced me to finally give in and file for personal bankruptcy. By January, I had lost my car and cleared my nonacademic debts. I defended my thesis the same month and graduated—happy to have finally attained my life jacket of a degree. 
I searched for teaching opportunities that would give me the income and flexibility needed to keep my business going. I applied for jobs in every market in my area. Teaching jobs, specifically for creative writing or English, were virtually nonexistent in my city, and the other positions required Ph.D.s and prior teaching experience. Awesome, I thoughtTeaching was out of the question for now. I decided to look for acting jobs or writing jobs in the area. The closest one was in Austin, 30 miles away from me. Without a car, that didn’t seem possible.

So she had to declare bankruptcy, which by the way doesn't clear the student loans that she took out to get a degree that didn't qualify her to be a fry cook at McDonalds.

I think that the people pushing college should be forced to sit down and show what jobs are available to that particular field, and how much they pay, and how many (or how few) jobs actually exist.  When I got out of high school, I was set up to go for a double major in Music and English.  Since I hated school at that point with the burning fury of a thousand stars, I passed on the college experience.  And while I'm now in the process of getting a degree, one class at a time, I think that skipping college was probably one of the smartest moves I could have made in my life.  Exactly what the hell was I going to do with a double major in Music and English?  How many Music/English jobs are out there that would pay me enough to afford a house and a car?  No, I got my priorities in order, and the bottom line is that without a degree I'm far more employable with my skills than a college grad and their English/Creative Writing/Social Justice/Gender Studies degree.  With the added bonus that I can be trusted to show up on time.

This guy sums it up rather well:

So how do you make money? 
Well, depends on your degree.  If you’re getting a degree that’s not directly tied to a career, often you emerge from college well suited to be a retail clerk.  Oops!  You were qualified for that before you went to school.  Hmm. 
Degrees matter.  Science.  Engineering.  Accounting.  Finance.  Economics.  Computers.  Construction Management. 
Those are good.  They pay well, and there are often more jobs than graduates. 
Sociology.  Anything with “Studies” in the target.  Exercise Science.  Music.  Art History.  Anthropology (over 12,000 grads, 700 jobs).  Art. 
These are a waste of your time and effort, if you expect to work in those fields and/or be able to afford to eat anything more than ramen.

Range Day

For some reason, I can't hit the broad side of a barn with my Walther P-22.  But I'm wondering if it's the ammo.  So I picked up a variety of ammo, and I'm taking it to the range.  Fifty rounds of five different ammunition should give me an idea if it's me, the gun, or the ammo.

My last range session, I got so irritated at my "groupings" with the P-22 that I grabbed my Taurus and dumped a mag into the target at a fairly high rate of speed, and got a grouping I could cover with the palm of my hand.  So if I can shoot twelve rounds of 9mm into a three inch circle at seven yards, why does twenty rounds of .22LR look like the spread from birdshot?

We'll see what happens.  I've got CCI, Blazer, Remington Golden Bullet (in 36 and 40 grain) and Aguila.  I'm hoping that I can figure out what the heck is going on.

Corrupt as all hell, and infecting everything it touches

Mueller's team wiped the cell phones of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page before handing them over to investigators.

Let me repeat that - Robert Mueller's team, which at one point included Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, until both Strzok and Page were FIRED FOR CAUSE, wiped the cell phones of the two fired individuals before investigators could access the text messages that led to Strzok and Page being fired in the first place.

Cover-up.  This is a cover-up, and it's being run by the man who's supposedly investigating a collusion incident but who is instead working with the Democrats to undo the results of the 2016 election.

They are all corrupt.  None of them can be trusted.

The DOJ morphed into the KGB so slowly I didn't notice it happening

This is approaching Soviet-levels of corruption, and Michael Flynn was railroaded by the same people who didn't lift a finger at Hillary Clinton's multiple felonies.

I truly, truly hope that the Flynn case gets tossed on its ear.  And then I hope that Flynn turns around and sues the ever-loving fuck out of every communist shitweasel who tried to railroad him.  I want the people who have turned the DOJ into their personal bullyboys to suffer.  If we can't send them to jail for the rest of their lives, then I want them homeless and destitute.

And let this be a lesson to you - the United States Department of Justice is no longer a non-partisan agency.  They are the thugs for the Democrat Party.  They're the goon squad for the Marxists and various other petty tyrants who have taken over the US government.  Treat them as such, until it can be proven that the taint and stench of the Democrats has been removed.  Do not trust them, because they cannot be trusted.  This isn't some low-level moron screwing up.  This is corruption at the very top, and you can be damn sure it has infected every department on the way down, like gangrene taking over a body.

Get out of Patreon now, before they cut you off at the knees

They're purging folks on the Right, while allowing folks on the Left to radicalize and raise money for things like "insurrection".

Patreon is back in the news following another round of what appears to be an ideological purge from their platform. In the last few days the accounts for Milo Yiannopoulos, Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), and James Allsup were all terminated. These individuals all have different belief systems and principals and have been vocal critics of each other but their common denominator is a very vocal and effective critique of the far-left and their creeping authoritarianism 
Following the termination of these accounts, many people speculated that Patreon was selectively enforcing their Community Guidelines in order to target right-of-center influencers.  What better way to test this theory then to see if left-of-center Patreon users are being dinged for their “manifest observable behavior”. 
Here is what we found. 
There are several far-left users who appear to be blatantly violating Pareon’s Community Guidelines. These users are raising thousands of dollars each month and are actively using that money to organize and advocate for violent and often illegal criminal activity.
It seems that all the tech platforms, being run out of the Bay Area, have adopted the Leftist fascism as their political mantra.  I wish I had answers.  I don't.  Hell, I'm just a little fish in a big pond, but I keep waiting for google to find this little blog and end it for badthink.

Take a look at who Patreon proudly allows to use their website to collect funds.  People who identify as Communists who want to violently end the "owning class".  But Sargon of Akkad gets cut off?

These people on the Left actually want a civil war.  They're hoping for it, because they think they'll be in charge when the smoke clears.  Because they're fucking morons.

Repeating the message until it sinks home

Modern feminism will make women miserable, lonely and alone.

Refusing to learn from history and experience only hardens people against the feedback from reality they need to make their lives better through smarter decisions. Thinking that the experience and wisdom of humans across time has a claim on our present behavior allows a form of troubleshooting and decisionmaking using billions of accumulated datapoints. Yes, it requires humility to consider whether your presuppositions and behavior are wrong, but what you may lose in feminist scorekeeping you reap a hundredfold in a richly happy life. How do I know? It’s happened to me.

Men and women are supposed to exist together in a complementary state.  Feminism keeps women apart and refuses to allow women to be complementary to men. 



Feminism turns women into men with vaginas.  Under feminism, a woman's value is the sum total of the sexual pleasure she can bring a man, because under feminism, a woman has never been taught to do what makes her special and unique.  The end result of a woman steeped in feminism is:  No family, no kids, no home, just another paycheck and access to vaginas.  Which men can get anywhere, and we can get it pretty much at any age depending on our success at making money.  Which makes a feminist woman valueless. 

Feminism destroys civilization. 

Trump Cancelled the White House Press Christmas Party

Good.  Let the fucking fuckers go fuck off somewhere else.

President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. 
The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

Oh, so the people who routinely shit all over Trump, insult him, and denigrate his family would be coming to party?  Well gosh, why don't we roll out the red carpet?

I've said multiple times that folks like me have waited decades for someone to treat the mainstream media with the disrespect it deserves.  Half of the joy that I get from Trump being in office is watching him overturn the apple-carts of the pompous jackasses who infest D.C.  So the media don't get their Christmas party?  GOOD!  Let them go waste someone else's money.

They think they're special.  And they are, but not in any way that could be considered good.

I want to know who drove this girl to suicide

A fourth-grade girl committed suicide because of racist bullying.  My heart goes out to the family, of both the girl and the boy she was friends with.  But I want to know, and maybe I'm being a bit touchy here because of personal reasons, but who, exactly, was doing the bullying?

“She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘you think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘you ugly,’ ‘black b-tch,’ ‘just die’,” she said.

If you want to see true racism, take a look at the violent hatred expressed towards blacks who walk off the Democrat plantation.  And what makes my hackles rise here is that if it were a majority white school, that would be front and center.  But going through the news report, there's no indication what so ever of the race of her bullies.

I don't like thinking in racial terms, but the Left has forced that mindset on this country.  So I want to know - what is the racial make-up of her school?  What is the racial make-up of her bullies? 

I look at blacks who have escaped the Democrat plantation, and the violent hatred they experience every single day.  Candice Owens comes to mind.  I think of the blacks who might not even be really conservative, but they're not liberal.  Condi Rice.  Walter Williams.  Thomas Sowell.  The sheer amount of hatred that is directed at them by other blacks

So here's this story that's supposed to tug at our heart-strings.  But thanks to the Left, and their absolute hatred of blacks who don't "act black", I want to know:  WHAT IS THE RACE THAT BULLIED THIS POOR GIRL TO SUICIDE?

I'm willing to bet that a huge bunch of them are black.  And the reason they bullied her is because they are racist against whites, and blacks that are friendly to whites.

And it breaks my heart.

And if it happens to be a classical case of racism, where whites were attacking her for being friends with a white boy, I hope that the families of those kids who taught them racism in the crib burn in hell.

It's stuff like this that makes me want to burn down every government office

The US Government doesn't work for you.  Do you think it works for you?  Nah, it works for the unaccountable elitists who want to replace you with people who are more controllable.  Which is why shit like this keeps happening.

The retired assistant case manager, Craig McNees, was in charge of vetting food-stamp applicants in north Florida and Indiana in the ’80s and says the program was infested with fraud and corruption that was perpetually ignored by management. “Illegals would come in by the vanload and we were told to give them their stuff,” McNees said. “Management knew very well they were illegal. It was so rampant that some employees would tell their illegal relatives to come get food stamps.” 

McNees contacted Judicial Watch after reading documents obtained by JW from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) detailing how the agency is working with the Mexican government to promote participation by illegal aliens in the U.S. food stamp program. The effort includes a Spanish-language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA ensuring that Mexicans in the U.S. don’t need to declare their immigration status to get financial assistance from Uncle Sam.
Can anybody give me ONE GOOD REASON why the US Government should be printing a pamphlet in Spanish instructing illegal aliens on how to get more money from a country they invaded illegally?  Anyone?  Anyone?

The retired case worker who contacted JW says in the three years he worked in a Sarasota food-stamp office, he found more than 500 cases of fraud but management ignored them all instead pushing a yearly quota. “They just said that if we don’t give out as many as last year, we don’t get our money,” McNees said. “It was crazy, like a three-ring circus; like the inmates were running the asylum.” 
Decades later it seems little has changed as Obama promotes the program like there’s no tomorrow. In fact, last summer a federal audit revealed that many who don’t qualify for food stamps receive them under a special “broad-based” eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. That means American taxpayers are getting stuck with a multi-million-dollar tab to feed hundreds of thousands who can well afford to feed themselves. 
Adding insult to injury, last spring the USDA Inspector General revealed that many food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. Some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash, the USDA watchdog told Congress, disclosing that the fraud has cost taxpayers nearly $200 million. None of this surprises McNees, who claims he witnessed so much fraud as a food-stamp case worker that he “could write a book.”
It's long past time to stop handing out money to people.  It doesn't work.  It hasn't done a damn thing to lift people out of poverty.  The "War On Poverty" started decades ago and has cost billions upon billions of dollars, but we still have the same problems with poverty that we've always had - some people are going to remain in poverty no matter what you give them, no matter how much money you hand them, no matter how many free goodies they receive, they will remain in poverty because they refuse to do anything to lift themselves out of poverty.

By the by, I got to that link from this one, which lists out why Illegal Aliens are committing crimes every day that they're in the country.  Go read it.  Read it all, and get pissed off.  More. 

Illegal Aliens cost society far more than any government agency is going to admit.  Why then won't they do the slightest thing to prevent illegal aliens from coming into the country?  Ponder on that question for a bit.

The unending hypocrisy of the Left

California is one of the most anti-gun states in the USA.  San Francisco is THE hotbed of leftist Marxist idiocy and evil in California.

So that's why the San Francisco DA was carrying a gun, ILLEGALLY, on public flights, and then firing the people who blew the whistle on him.

A former senior investigator says he was fired for blowing the whistle on his boss, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón, who he alleged carried a gun while flying — in violation of federal law. 
Gascón reacted with a “pattern of retaliation and harassment” that culminated in the termination of senior investigator Henry G. McKenzie on Oct. 30, 2017, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

We no longer really have the rule of law in this country.  We have one law that we the Normal Americans have to follow, and one law that the the un-touchable politically connected elites follow, where they can violate the laws with impunity and skate away from any charges for doing things that would land us Normal Americans in jail.  Does anyone who reads this blog think that if they took their gun with them through the San Francisco airport that they'd just be allowed to waltz on through?  Hell no, we'd be in jail.  For a loooooooong, long time.

In short, we have a Marxist system of law in this country now.  Much like in the old USSR, where the political elite would live in luxurious dachas while the common folk starved, in the USSA the politically connected can violate any number of laws without consequence, while we Normal Americans are forced to suffer under an increasing number of often incomprehensible laws and regulations imposed on us against our will.

What cannot go on forever, won't.  And this two-tiered system of laws in America will eventually lead to we Normal Americans just shrugging our shoulders and deciding that this game is rigged and we're not going to play anymore.

It is telling that the most Marxist areas of the country are the places where the most corrupt, vile, foul hypocrites live.  It's almost as if Marxist ideologies and corruption go hand in hand.....

On that note, the Marxist half-wit elected to represent parts of NYC, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wasted no time in threatening a private citizen with the full power of the state.  Commies gonna commie, folks.  There is not a single Marxist out there who uses the power of the state benevolently.  Ever.  This googly-eyed, unbelievably stupid woman is just as evil and corrupt as any other Marxist.  And it didn't take her long to prove that fact.

Yeak, **** Nike.

Fuck them good and hard with a barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat.

With Kaepernick, Nike took a risk, but a safely calculated one: he was just edgy enough to seem countercultural, but mainstream enough to suit their bottom line. In the current anti-Trump climate, he was about as safe a bet as you could make. 
The decision to sign Kaepernick obviously had nothing to do with his sporting profile. He has not played in the NFL since 2016, as he has been unable to find a new team. And yet he was given a contract with Nike that was said to be on par with top-end NFL players. 
Kanter, on the other hand, is in the prime of his sporting career, making millions pursuing his passion. What’s more, his decision to put everything on the line to continue speaking out against the Turkish regime, which has detained over 170,000 of his fellow citizens in recent years, showed precisely the kind of bravery Nike is claiming to champion. 
While the trend for using social-justice issues to promote products is nothing new, there has certainly been a wave recently of preachy politically charged commercials. In this age of virtue-signalling, companies are trying to imbue their products with a sense of moral superiority. But Kanter’s story shows that campaigns like Kaepernick’s have nothing to do with principle.

Nike's politics are like their shoes - flashy, with little substance and no support.

It's been a week

So let's be blunt.  George HW Bush might have been a Navy Hero, and a decent man.  But he was a horrible president.

Not only did he—read my lips—betray the legacy of Ronald Reagan in his electorally fatal decision to welsh on his “no new taxes” pledge, not only did he cut the legs out from under the Reagan Revolution by calling for a “kinder, gentler America,” but he also egregiously mishandled the Gipper’s most important legacy: the defeat of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

Years ago I did a list of America's ten worst Presidents.  I put Bush Sr. at #9.  He was the perfect model of the Republican establishment.  Read the whole article.  I can't argue with a bit of it.

Yep

Dunno if I've thrown this one against the wall yet....

Here's something to piss off the SJW NPCs



It's a wintertime classic.  Always will be.


Light Blogging Ahead

This weekend is going to be busy.  So I might through up a couple of posts but nothing serious. 

Talk amongst yourselves.

A corrupt, Soros-funded Democrat from Michigan?

And she worships a pedophile prophet?  Business as usual, I guess.

I do believe this is the same thoroughly corrupt woman who ran away from Laura Loomer.

And we all knew it

GOP "leadership" (that would be the backstabbing twatwaffle known as Paul Ryan) blocked Trump's reform bill last summer.

The GOP leadership let the House immigration reform die in June by allowing a critical bloc of GOP legislators to split their votes between two rival reform bills, said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the retiring chairman of the House committee on the judiciary. 
“The strategy of having two options really let people have an off-ramp — they could vote for the more conservative bill and against the other, or vote for the second bill and not the first,” Goodlatte said, adding: 
That is just not a good strategy and I complained about it at the time. I said ‘You’ve got to narrow this down to one bill and then work really hard to get the members to vote for that one bill.’ 
Goodlatte’s statement matches the June statement by Rep. Jim Jordan, who said: “If our leadership had put the same whip effort behind that immigration legislation, Chairman Goodlatte’s legislation, it would have passed.” 

Tell me again about how Trump is the reason the GOP lost the House.  Go ahead.  Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan made the decision to create the rival bill that blocked Goodlatte’s bill. 
On November 30, Ryan told an interviewer that he preferred the second bill, which he credited to Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo. 
The Curbelo bill was drafted when Ryan exploited a pro-amnesty push by Curbelo and other business-first GOP legislators to push an amnesty for younger “DACA” illegals. Ryan blocked the amnesty push by crafting a pro-business “Goodlatte II” bill to sink Goodlatte’s bill.

If the GOP actually followed the principles it claims to have, we would control both Congress and the White House, forever.  But voters are faced with a choice - do they want to vote for a bunch of Anti-American National Socialist shitheels who are trying to destroy America (Democrats), or do they want to vote for a bunch of big-government Democrats-in-everything-but-name who lie about their intentions every single day in order to get elected (Republicans)?  Most folks are going to go with the people who are open about their intentions, because it's easier to resist someone who's frank about their hatred for this country.  GOP voters were tired of pulling knives out of their back, and they were sick and tired of Paul Fucking Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment putting them there.

I hate the Democrat Party for being anti-American marxists, and I hate the Republican Party for being a bunch of backstabbing traitors.  That's why I voted for Donald Trump.  That's why I'll vote for him in 2020 if he runs.  And if he doesn't run, I'll vote for someone else who will make the GOP scream in anger.  Because then maybe they'll begin to have a small taste of the absolute rage I feel every time I see the GOP betray it's base.  Which is a daily occurrence, at this point.

Donald Trump didn't lose the House.  The GOP lost the House by shitting all over their voters ONCE AGAIN.  And they might lose the Senate next time too.

And they wonder why they lost the House

Because they sell out the base while rolling over for the Democrats.  Because they are, at heart, Democrats, who only mouth conservative platitudes in order to get elected, while returning to their native state once they get to D.C.

Sadly, President Bush’s passing provided Republicans with the perfect subterfuge with which to sell us out, even though they were already looking for an avenue to cave. They are planning to pass a two-week continuing resolution that will expire right before Christmas on December 21, knowing full well there will be no appetite for a border fight right before everyone leaves town for the holiday. 
There is no reason we can’t deal with the ultimate government shutdown – the suspension of law and order at our border – while we hold a funeral for President Bush. Republicans know this as well as we do, but they never had any intention of fighting.

If all we're going to get out of the House is Democrat bills, then it should be the Democrats pushing them, eh?

And speaking of priorities, while our immigration priorities are not in the bill, the priorities of cheap labor will eventually be in the omnibus. Congress plans to double the number of H-2B non-agricultural, unskilled seasonal workers that will continue to be a public charge on America. Also, even before legislators pass the omnibus prior to Christmas, they are slipping in extensions of the flood insurance programs and the Violence Against Woman Act (VAWA) even in the two-week stopgap bill. 
Evidently, we can afford to go without border security but we can’t have any lapse in this broken flood insurance program or a special-interest program that uses an important issue to subvert due process.

Paul Ryan was such an utter, feckless failure that I really can't properly describe him in the English language.  Someone recently suggested that there ought to be another layer of hell in Dante's Inferno, for the people who are not only traitors but nation-wreckers.  I agree.  I say that you make the 10th circle of hell the area where Satan shits out the traitors that he's chewed upon; the shat-out traitors spend all of eternity trying to crawl back up Satan's ass to escape the hell, but they keep getting pushed down by more nation-wrecking traitors getting shat out, as well as being pulled back down by their companions, much as they pulled down the good, hard-working Americans with their Marxist idiocy, backstabbing, and lies.  Paul Ryan needs to be the first one shat out, followed by John Boehner, although Boehner is no longer infecting the GOP actively.  He's like shingles; caused by a virus that lays dormant until the wrong time, when it pops out and causes massive pain.

Sadly, it appears that the House will pass a new stopgap bill on Thursday without a recorded vote, so the public won’t even be treated to a debate. What a sad way to end an eight-year run of GOP House control.

I think it's the perfect way to end the eight year GOP run - gutless pathetic fucking backstabbers flipping the bird to their voting base one last time.

Fuck the GOP establishment.  Fuck them all to hell.

Google is Evil. It's Big Brother and Napoleon all wrapped into one.

Yes, I know blogger is part of Google.  Yes, I hope they're logging just how much I hate them because of shit like this.

Eighty-seven individuals searched for the same terms as part of Measuring the Filter Bubble: How Google Is Influencing What You Click, a study conducted by DuckDuckGo, a search engine that aims to protect users’ privacy. Participants searched Google for “gun control,” “immigration,” and “vaccinations,” but despite the identical search terms, the results varied, even when controlling the time and location, according to the study. 
DuckDuckGo also found that logging out of Google or searching in private browsing did not change this variation in Google search results, perhaps suggesting that such tactics don’t actually provide anonymity. 
Regardless of whether the users were logged in, logged out, or using the incognito mode feature, variation remained constant—in some cases, different news sources appeared in the results, while in others, the placement of a result differed drastically between searches, according to the study. The variation was also true of the results that appeared in the Google news and video boxes.

Read it all.  To the vast majority of my readers, this won't be any kind of a shock, it'll be more confirmation of what we already knew:  Google is evil, and it's trying to push you into thinking how it wants you to think.

I never use Google to search.  Ever.  I use DuckDuckGo on my home computer.  I won't ever use Google to do a damn thing, because I don't need Big Brother knowing everything about me.

We don't need any more Welfare leeches

But that's what we're getting.

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation. 
In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it. 

That means that those people aren't here to "improve their life", unless that means sucking off of the productive citizens of this country like fat ticks on a dog.

“Concern over immigrant welfare use is justified, as households headed by non-citizens use means-tested welfare at high rates. Non-citizens in the data include illegal immigrants, long-term temporary visitors like guest workers, and permanent residents who have not naturalized. While barriers to welfare use exist for these groups, it has not prevented them from making extensive use of the welfare system, often receiving benefits on behalf of U.S.-born children,” added the Washington-based immigration think tank. 
The numbers are huge. The report said that there are 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare.
There is absolutely no reason in the world why we should bring people to this country and then pay them to stay here.  Now many vets are refused treatment at the VA?  How many people in this country are homeless because they can't get the psychiatric help they need?  This is insanity.  We need to cut this flow of Welfare leeches off, and we need to do it now. 

Send them back if need be.  But not one more fucking dime should go to people who weren't born here, and came here of their own volition.

I'm finding myself spending less time on Twitter

And on Gab.  Gab is fine if you want to have a general discussion.  Twitter I only use for the express purpose of finding the anti-American socialists and poking them with a stick.

I think this pretty much sums it up well.



I don't do facebook, I don't do Instagram, I delete any email from LinkedIn the moment it comes across the transom, I've never even contemplated Tinder.  Netflix is for specific shows, and even then it's getting less and less interesting to me.  I do Yelp, because I travel enough that I can't always ask the locals where the best place to eat is located.  And twitter is getting to be nothing more than a Leftist echo chamber.  I will admit that I enjoy triggering Leftists, but even that loses it's appeal

George H.W. Bush dead at 94

94 is a good long time.

Gimme a week, for propriety's sake.

The corrupt FBI, part of the corrupt DOJ, just raided a whistleblower

Yes, raided someone who was helping expose corruption and criminal activity.  But....  wait...  he was exposing the Clintons.  And since the Clintons managed to turn the DOJ and FBI into their own private goon squads, guess what happened to him?

FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney. 
The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges. 
The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges. 

There are two sets of rules for this country - one for the normal, law-abiding people and one for the thoroughly corrupt elitists who have managed to seize power.  In any sane world, Hillary Clinton would already be in jail.  Instead, her goon squad at the FBI are still harassing the people who are exposing her evil and how far it reaches.

Anybody out there think we're still going to be voting our way out of this?  Marxists don't ever, EVER let go of power peacefully.

Range day! Range day!

Party Time!  Excellent!

How to be a shitty parent, forever

Start by naming your daughter "Abcde".  Apparently it's pronounced "Ab-City".  But you know what?  If you cannot give your child a name that doesn't need to be explained every single time it's used, then you're the problem.

If you have to say "It's pronounced....." after every time you introduce your child, you're a failure as a parent. 

Reminds me of a story I heard from someone who was working in a hospital.  This medical professional took one look at the name, said "Nope, can't say that", and used his last name to call him in the ER.  "Mr. Williams?"  Only "Mr. Williams" was a teenager, and his mother was there.  And his mother didn't like this lady using his last name.  Nope.  Took umbrage with it, in fact.  Got all pissy, because the first name wasn't being used.  So mama stands up, looks at this medical professional, and spits out "It's Sha-THEED!"  Yeah.  Shatheed.  Only it wasn't spelled Shatheed, it was spelled Shithead.

This dumb ass woman named her son Shithead.  Pronounced ShaTHEED.  I'm betting her name was LaQuantia or something moronic like that.

Go read this instead, and pass it out do your daughters before they get old too.

They are not asylum seekers, and the media is pushing a fake narrative

Fakeity-fake-fake-fake news.

The photograph that will represent the caravan storming the border right now has been chosen by the shadowy figures gathered around alphabet-channel boardrooms. It was carefully chosen and then disseminated through all the major networks to elicit the most outrage and sympathy from the American public. It is nauseating in its transparency. It was covered by the Washington Post YahooCNNReutersTMZThe Daily Mail and NBC, among others.

Huh.  All the usual suspects, all using the same photograph, all pushing the same narrative.  Who woulda thunk it?

I'm looking around at the rest of the surging crowd and they're all wearing pants. In fact, a lot of them have accessories and headbands and scarves and bags. None of the adults are running around without pants. Why are these two children naked from the waist down and in diapers when they both appear to be at least 5 or 6 years old? This is a glaring red flag.

If you enlarge the photograph, you can see at least TWO other staged photo shoots going on in the background.  The entire photograph is one huge exercise in making up bullshit and selling it as news.  It's fake.  It's faker than the American media's integrity.





Push back against the anti-American media.  Push back against the liars and the fakers.  Let them know that we know they are full of bullshit.  We know they are fake news.

Ooooo!  Found a good summation of the photograph right here!

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Don't Flip The Switch Edition

From Larry Correia:

A friend of mine who is a political activist said something interesting the other day, and that was for most people on the left political violence is a knob, and they can turn the heat up and down, with things like protests, and riots, all the way up to destruction of property, and sometimes murder… But for the vast majority of folks on the right, it’s an off and on switch. And the settings are Vote or Shoot Fucking Everybody.  And believe me, you really don’t want that switch to get flipped, because Civil War 2.0 would make Bosnia look like a trip to Disneyworld.

Got some thoughts percolating in my brain.  May or may not post them tomorrow.

I didn't do a damn bit of shopping yesterday

Why would I want to be out in crowds like this?



More importantly, why would I want to follow up a day of gratitude, a day when we thank the Lord for the blessings that we have, to turn around and be consumed by greed and envy?



Is this what we really want?  To beat our fellow man over a cheap TV or some other household item than you can buy on every other single day of the year?  "But Dave, it's half-off!"  So is that other person's dignity, or yours, worth a couple hundred bucks?  Is that how cheap dignity is these days?

I refuse.  I refuse to participate in an event that makes a mockery of a day dedicated to gratitude, and also a mockery of the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord and King Jesus Christ, also known as Christ's Mass, which people now call Christmas.  "Let's all celebrate our Redeemer by beating the shit out of each other for a half-priced jacket!"  Nope.

There might be dozens or hundreds of reasons why you would come to blows with another person.  A good deal on children's toys does not fall into any of those reasons.

I think I'm still full from last night....

Dear Lord, that was a lot of food.  An embarrassment of riches, even.  We had ham, and turkey, and candied yams, and stuffed butternut squash, and mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole, and stuffing, and gravy.  The wife made a pumpkin pie CHEESECAKE.  I made four loaves of bread.  We had friends over.  My pal and I ended the evening sipping bourbon on the back porch, smoking a Perdomo bourbon-barrel aged toro, and wondering how we were going to get to sleep with our stomachs protruding out like a pregnant whale.

So yes, it was a successful Thanksgiving.  For which I'm thankful.

A Proclamation

A Proclamation.
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.
By the President: Abraham Lincoln
William H. Seward,
Secretary of State
