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.
