Stuffed beef

Some time in the past I wandered over a blog post at CMBlake's joint that showed a gent with a beard stuffing ground beef with all kinds of goodies like onions and mushrooms and topping it with cheese, and then grilling them for an hour till they were done.

"Self" I said to myself, "You can do that."

So I did.  And it was good.  This particular dinner was ground beef filled with onions, mushrooms, pastrami, topped with smoked mozzarella and wrapped with bacon.  I had it in the grill, off-set from the coals at about 325 for an hour.

And then the Ragin' Mrs looks at me and says "Hey....  what if we tried this with a few different concepts?  Like maybe spaghetti and meatballs?"

"Self", I said to myself, "You can do that too!"  And so I did.

I made the bowls out of ground beef and our home-made Italian sausage (hot).  I made a red sauce with onions, garlic, and various Italian herbs.  I cooked up some whole-wheat pasta.  Whole wheat pasta seems to hold firmer than most other kinds, and since this was going to be cooked twice I wanted to make sure the pasta held up.  I filled the bowls with sauce and pasta, then topped it with finally shredded pecorino-romano cheese.  Here's the pre-grilled pic:

And here it is on my plate, along with a small loaf of bread:

Once it came off the grill I topped it with a bit more sauce.

Yes.  It was good.

Now go forth, and GRILL!

Yet another illegal alien

killing folks in the USA.

Gustavo Castillo Gutierrez, a 26 year old illegal alien previous deported three times has been charged with the death of sports journalist Bob Barry Jr. According to police, Gutierrez who was under the influence of cocaine at the time made an illegal u-turn from the right turn lane in front of Barry causing the crash.

I've heard the argument "Well, we have Americans that do that too!"  Yep.  So that means we don't need to IMPORT any criminal shitheads and allow them to live here, doesn't it?

How is this not child abuse?

Allowing 15 year old kids to get sex change operations without their parent's consent?  And having it paid for with TAX DOLLARS????

So, you cannot smoke at 15.
You cannot drink at 15
You cannot drive a car at 15.

But somehow the dope-smoking morons in Oregon think it's OK for you to cut off your penis when you're 15, and they'll make the state pay for it, and they won't tell your parents.

Ho.  Lee.  Shit.

Add this to the Christian bakers who are getting hammered to the tune of $135,000 for not baking a Big Gay Wedding cake, and you can safely say that Oregon hasn't just turned the asylum patients loose, they've installed them as the leadership of the state.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, HAI! edition.

 Giant robots are as Japanese as flower arrangement, haiku poetry, bushido warrior-code, and schoolgirls in sailor suits fighting tank battles while singing Soviet Anthems!


Those who forget history

Are doomed to repeat it.  And the reason for Leftist control of education is to make sure their students forget history.  And by making the students forget history, they can then control those students who don't have any basis to object to what they see going on.  That's if they object at all, since they're so ignorant they buy in to failed leftist ideas without understanding the failure, pain and misery those ideas have brought.

Well....  ignorance mission complete, I'd say.

it’s very hard to grasp that the person you’re talking to, who is bright, articulate, advisable, interested, and doesn’t know who Beethoven is. Had no view looking back at the history of the 20th century – just sees a fog. A blank. Has the vaguest idea of who Winston Churchill was or why he mattered. And maybe has no image of Teddy Roosevelt, let’s say, at all. I mean, these are people who – We have failed.

By sending our kids to government schools we have raised generations of ignorant people who have no clue where they came from or where they're going.

That explains why Obama got elected twice, doesn't it?

I can only hope they thought he wasn't serious

Or, maybe they really just love chocolate that much.  But damn...

Oh my...

So, the illegal alien who killed the woman in San Francisco did so with a gun that belonged to a Federal Agent.

The gun used in the seemingly random slaying of a woman on a San Francisco pier belonged to a federal agent, a law enforcement official briefed on the matter said Tuesday. 
The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity, said a police check of the weapon’s serial number shows it belonged to a federal agent. The official declined to elaborate further.

Way to go there, jack-wagons!  It's not bad enough that you worthless assholes refuse to seal the border, but now you have to give the criminals guns?

(Yes, that's hyperbole.)

Oh look -

Yet another spoiled little bitch who hates the country that made her rich.

The worker is then seen in the video placing a fresh batch of donuts on the counter. Grande wasn’t too pleased, however. 
“What the f*** is that?” she said. “I hate Americans. I hate America.”

I don't know who Ariana Grande is, but all I can say is "Show me your tits, girlie, because that's all you're good for".

Heh:  High Profile Hillary Clinton Supporter:  "I Hate Americans.  I Hate America."

And here's another one

Illegal alien deported multiple times comes back to American and murders his wife with a hammer.

Man, it's like people who cross the border illegally don't care about the law or something!

Another multiple deportee felon hurting Americans

Yet another illegal alien committing more criminal activity in America.

A six-time-deported illegal immigrant is charged in the felony hit-and-run of an Arizona mother and her two young children. The man allegedly admitted to being high on marijuana while causing the severe lacerations to a five-year-old boy. The five-year-old and a two-year-old were both taken to an area hospital.

But Donald Trump is crazy for mentioning the criminals coming across our border.  Yeah.  Right.

Michelle Malkin used to have this regular post

Where she would simply link to a news article of yet another American killed by an illegal alien.

Seems like other folks are restarting that trend.

An illegal alien from Mexico who was deported last year is accused of fatally shooting and burning a Washington woman and her son. 
According to the Tri-City Herald, Fragos-Ramirez was last deported in 2014 but had re-entered the country illegally. He has a rap sheet that includes charges for DUI and driving with a suspended license.

So, yet another illegal alien who was already deported previously comes back to commit more crime in America.

But don't mention the border, because otherwise you might upset the heavily socialist latinos who are flooding across our border.  That makes sense, right?  Seems legit?  Yeah, I didn't think so either.

So, how 'bout the US National Women's Team, eh?

Granted, I don't follow soccer and I didn't watch the game.  But I did catch this shot online.

Dayum!  From mid-field, over the goalie, for the hat trick.

Even if you're not a soccer fan, you have to admit that's an impressive shot.

Other than the whole "Dogs vs. Fireworks" thing...

It was a pretty mellow 4th of July here at the Ragin' household.  And after a bit, the dogs settled down and just looked at us every time some firework went off, as if to say "Hey, should I be alarmed right now?  No?  OK, I'll just lay here then."

Had seafood for dinner.  Not the stereotypical burgers and hot dogs, but the wife really, really REALLY wanted crab.  So we found a place that had live Dungeness crab for $10 a pound, grabbed a pound of shrimp to go with it, and had us a cholesterol-laden seafood dinner.  With butter.  And lemon juice.

Maybe when we're out of this shithole we'll go back to being wild party animals on the 4th.  But I don't want to be out and about on any major holiday in LA.  The people here can't drive on a good day.  Get them liquored up and hopped up on cordite, and I refuse to be on the same roads as they are.
