So, I don't have a TV...

I don't have a facebook account, and I deleted my Twitter account.  So it wasn't until I had logged on to the intartubes today that I found out that Chiquita Kruschev had oped up her ignorant pie-hole and blurted out yet another bushel of stupidity.  While I had a bunch of words to say about that, I'll let Steven Crowder do that instead.

You know what?  I take it back.  I have no words for what kind of stupidity it takes to compare American border security to Nazi Germany.

Last I checked, people were crossing the border to get IN to this country.

Changing of my schedule

I used to blog in the morning, because I had a short commute and there wasn't much traffic, so I could sip coffee, blog and get to work on time.

Yeah, that's right out the window.  I have an hour commute right now, and that's if I leave the front door at 0700.  That gives me 15 minutes for the Rosary, an hour for PT and 45 minutes of prep before I had better be out the door, because at 0715 the roads lock up.

So I'm either going to start posting things at night for the next day, or I'm going to just post at night.

I can't wait to retire.

Went to Trader Joe's yesterday

They have plenty of things that the wife can have without causing any of her food issues to flare up.  So we go in, do a little shopping, and as we're going up and down the isles, I see a girl.

Black yoga pants so darn tight that each ass-cheek moved independently.  Purple crop top, black bra, and just a flat out rockin' body  Had I been my young, foolish self I would have been drooling.  But me being my older self, I looked at her face.

Full make-up, to include fake eyelashes.  Foundation, blush, eyeliner, the works.  And a French braid to boot.

The woman who puts on an entire face of make-up, and then dresses in clothing that leaves little to the imagination while shopping at Trader Joe's has got too many issues to even contemplate.  I don't care how rockin' that body was.  I wouldn't dip my wick in that for love or money.

No matter how good a woman looks, there's some guy out there who's sick of her shit.  And I'm willing to bet that girl has a trail of men who are sick of her.

The Smoking Nazis have won in Utah

Went to order cigars yesterday.  Guess what I found out?  You can't order cigars online and have them delivered to Utah.

No, that's not a joke or a typo. 

Also went to Beehive Cigars (best cigar shop in SLC)  They had their usual great selection.  But their private lounge, where one used to be able to enjoy a stogie?  Closed.  Permanently.  By the Utah Clean Air act.

The loss of a cigar lounge is rather upsetting.  The inability to order cigars online is flat out infuriating.  The Mrs. and I are appropriately outraged.

However, there's a little town just across the Utah/Wyoming border that has a post office, and where I can obtain a post office box.  And given that the Mrs. and I will be visiting this town about once a month (much cheaper prices on alcohol, food, ammunition....  hell, everything) I will be getting said PO box, and I'll have my cigars shipped there.  It'll increase the cost of my cigars by about $120 a year, but I figure that's worth it.

I'll not be told that I can't engage in a legal activity by the various nanny-state twatwaffles.

How many American lives have been lost because Democrats won't allow them to fight to win?

Seriously, how many?

Truman, after convening the National Security Council, also chose not to answer MacArthur’s request for orders. “This present telegram is not to be taken in any sense as a directive. Its purpose is to give you something of what is in our minds.” U.S. troops’ successful resistance would demonstrate that aggression does not pay and would encourage others to believe in America’s pledges of assistance. “We recognize, of course, that continued resistance might not be militarily possible with the limited forces with which you are being called upon to meet large Chinese armies…if we must withdraw from Korea, it [must] be clear to the world that that course is forced upon us by military necessity.” Translated from bureaucratese, the message was: hold on with the forces and restrictions you’ve got, regardless of how many American lives it costs. 
And cost it did. Some three fourths of the Americans killed in Korea died after the U.S. government stopped trying to win the war. Since Truman’s decision taught the world that no-win wars were now the American ruling class’s modus operandi, the cost of three later generations’ wars, including the incalculable toll of domestic decay resulting from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, should also be added in.

Truman screwed Korea.  Lyin' Bastard Johnson got us into Viet Nam, but wouldn't let us fight to win.  Jimmuh Carter fucked up Iran.  Blow-Job Clinton got Americans massacred in Somalia.  The death count went up in Afghanistan under Obama, and of course he pretty much assured ISIS that it could kill at will and he wouldn't do anything about it.  That doesn't even begin to touch Obama's "red line" in Syria that ended up with untold millions dead.

I am afraid to recommend that anyone join the military, because at some point in the future we will have a Democrat president again, and a Democrat as Commander-in-Chief seems intent on sacrificing American lives in order to impress his globalist buddies, not to actually win a war.


So there's an app store that you can use to avoid giving Google or Apple your money.  It's called Aptoide.

I'm giving it a try.  Because fuck Google.

Happy 244th!

To the greatest fighting force in the world, the US Army!

Yeah, gotta toot my own horn a bit.

If you want to know what Democrats think of you, just listen to their own words.

Like this:

While speaking from the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, did her bit to foment hate and possible violence against Trump supporters by reading a constituent letter calling Trump supporters dumb, ignorant racists.

The person who wrote that letter calling us all dumb, ignorant racists is, get this, a "Christian" pastor.  Yeah.

Additionally, the letter Fudge read called the Republican Party a Trump cult and Democrats are apparently not being violent enough in their opposition.

Jump if you're feeling froggy, you Marxist shitstain.  You'll see just how quickly the switch gets flipped.

There's no talking with these people.  As many others have pointed out time and time again, you cannot have a debate with someone who thinks you are evil incarnate.  You can't compromise with someone who thinks you have no right to exist.

New House Blues

The internet is supposed to get set up today.  Hopefully by the time the day is over, I'll be able to connect at home.

And then I can get back to blogging without having to schedule posts.

Sound Advice

And it's not even political.

I think that what makes a Soldier a Soldier, and it's both a crowning achievement and the greatest liability, is that they can keep going through unbelievable amounts of damage.  The phrase "Suck it up and drive on!" has been yelled at more troops than can be counted.  And we do.  Until we can't.  And typically by that time, it's too late to prevent the damage from being permanent.

I'm currently sitting here with a jacked-up lower back and a sesamoid bone that's split in half.  And I'm not combat arms anymore.  Those days are long gone, but the Army does what the Army does and you get beat up.  I've had two different doctors warn me that I'll have to stop running.  Do I listen?

Take a guess.

Infantry guys are even worse.  Tankers?  Ever notice how tankers all seem to limp as they get into their thirties?  AIRBORNE!  DEATH FROM ABOVE!  With not a single vertebrae left intact.

I'm thinking we should all take Bill's advice right about now.
