Another year

Popped the top on some honey beer.  Clinked glasses with the Mrs.  Now it's off to bed.

New Year's Nope

Once again, I'm not willing to go out and be surrounded by drunk morons, yahoos, idiots, and various other sundry detritus that tends to collect in bars and clubs and behind the wheel of vehicles on New Year's Eve.

Hell, I doubt I'll even stay up to ring in the New Year.  No point in it.  Not for me, anyways.  It's just another year.

Maybe that makes me old and grumpy, I don't know.  But to be honest with you, I never really enjoyed New Year's parties even when I was in my twenties.  Why spend that much money on crappy alcohol surrounded by people with the manners of water buffalo with a bad temper and a case of hemorrhoids?

The Mrs. and I will be staying home, popping a bottle of bubbly that I bottled a while ago.  And that's perfectly fine with me.

Ronda Rousey lasted 48 seconds before getting knocked out

I'm thinking it's time she retire and go make some movies.

Or find a better coach.  You knew you were going up against a striker, and you looked completely unprepared.  Who the hell is training you?  Fire them.

Something to think about

With all these folks dying.  I had to do my PHA recently, and of course they took my labs.  My cholesterol was 230 or so.  The doc freaked.

I was relating this to my mom, who spent decades as a Registered Nurse Practitioner.  Think of a nurse with a doctorate.

She told me simply that our grandparents, and her grandparents, died with sky-high cholesterol.  In their 90's.

Maybe we should focus less on how much red meat people are eating, and more on what chemicals they're ingesting, either with their food or recreationally.

Why your washing machine sucks

The Foundation for Economic Education has an article about why modern American appliances suck.

And they do.

When I was stationed at Ft. Buchanan, they installed new "efficient" front-load washers into the housing on post.  They were so "efficient" that we had to run the loads TWICE in order to get the soap out of our clothes, doubling our water usage on laundry.

Don't get me started on low-flow toilets.  I'm a bigger than average guy, but not a monster by any means.  And there has never been a low-flow toilet than can flush my morning constitutional in one flush, meaning I have to stand by and do two or three flushes.  Which means lots of extra water.

One of my friends from another post recalled that they used cloth diapers, which required lots of washing.  But they lived in Germany at the time, and the water heaters there actually HEAT THE WATER, which meant that the diapers came out of the wash CLEAN!  Try doing that with an American washer, and an American water heater, which is more like a water warmer, and you'll end up with a bacteria laden lump of crap in your washer.

Why do we put up with this kind of horrible machinery?  Government.  Plain and simple.

It's far past time we said "Fuck the government".

Today on Woot

I normally don't do many product reviews, but I have one of these bad boys I think they're pretty awesome.  I typically use it on my motorcycle.  The pocket on the back comes with what they call a "Universal Holster".  Basically a couple straps of velcro to hold everything in place.  The pocket will fit a full-sized M1911A1 and a spare mag.

It's not the biggest bag in the world, but it's one that I keep using.

Watching a neighbor's dog

Whist they go off on holiday.  Luckily, he's not the type that tries to dominate everything in the house.  However, I can see our dogs having a discussion with him come meal time.

Gonna be a fun couple of days.

Another celebrity died

I don't care.

I really don't care.  Earlier this month I was part of a funeral for a man who lived his life to the fullest.  He raised two wonderful kids who are raising their own kids now.  He retired as a Master Sergeant form the USMC.  He ran rifle competitions for both the USMC and the NRA.

His funeral was attended by maybe twenty people.  And in my opinion, he was eminently more worthy of a send-off than some Hollywood celeb.

Last month, one of the folks at my parish in California died of cancer.  We was younger than I am.  He left behind a beautiful wife and five wonderful children.  His death was exponentially more tragic than any of these Hollywood people who spent their lives doing drugs and being stupid, or in the case of Debbie Reynolds, lived a decent life and died at the ripe old age of 84.

I'm a little tired of seeing people wail and moan and gnash their teeth as these celebrities kick the bucket.  Maybe if George Michael didn't do lines of coke of a male hooker's ass for decades, he would have lived longer.  Maybe if Prince wasn't popping pills like a ten-dollar whore, he wouldn't have died.  Many people have died this year, and I've mourned for many of them but Carrie Fisher isn't one.  Without going to Google or IMDB, can anyone name a movie other than any of the Star Wars franchise that she was a part of?

I didn't think so.

More people are going to die.  We all die.  Let's mourn the folks who deserve it.

And just in case, Dear 2016:  Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham are still alive.  Just so you know.


Found this thread on Twitter.

Started reading down, and going "Holy Hell, I remember that!"  Amazing how far we've come in just my lifetime.

Horry Clap!

Stole it from here.

And Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack

As with George Michael, there's a lesson to be learned here.  And that lesson is this:  Don't do drugs.  Oh sure, you might not die of an overdose in your 20's, but the damage that you'll do will shorten your life dramatically.

The Day After Christmas

The Feast of St. Steven, widely called "The First Martyr".

We had an interesting sermon at Mass yesterday.  Yesterday was not only the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord, but it was the commemoration of St. Anastasia III, another Martyr.  In fact, there are a whole lot of feasts coming up celebrating Martyrs throughout Christianity's existence.  And fittingly, you'll find quite a few saints who were martyred.

As the priest put it, "Martyrdom, martyrdom, martyrdom, Merry Christmas."

So we celebrate the joy of the birth of our Savior, but we also have to keep in mind that Jesus didn't come here to save us on this world.  He came here to save us for the next.

God never promised us Earth.  He promised us Heaven.

Oh, and since the day after Christmas is almost as bad as the day after Thanksgiving, there's not a chance in hell I'm going out today.  Hells to the no.  I've got some bottling to do.  And cider to make. I'm using a lager yeast, since my basement is cold enough that ale yeasts don't seem to be doing much.  It's an experiment.  And then, I've got one batch of gose to make, and from there we're off into experiment territory again.

George Michael is dead

Seems like someone saved me the trouble of hunting him down and killing him for that abomination "Last Christmas" song that I've been forced to listen to over and over and over this year.

OK, OK, that's not nice.  But neither is "Last Christmas".

For unto us a Child is Born

1 And it came to pass that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled. 
2 This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria. 
3 And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city. 
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David. 
5 To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child. 
6 And it came to pass that when they were there, her days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 
7 And she brought forth her first born son and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger: because there was no room for them in the inn. 
8 And there were in the same country shepherds watching and keeping the night watches over their flock. 
9 And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them and the brightness of God shone round about them: and they feared with a great fear. 
10 And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that shall be to all the people: 
11 For, this day is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. 
12 And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. 
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying: 

14 Glory to God in the highest: and on earth peace to men of good will. 

Luke was the Historian of the Gospel writers.  Just so you know.

Need more coffee

Gotta get up on the roof and clean out the gutters today.  I waited until the trees stopped dumping metric butt-loads of leaves every day.  Today's that day.  Gotta do it.


Here's half an hour of good Christmas music

Orchestral, even!

Thursday, December 22, 2016

Wanna go caroling?

Or wassailing.  Have the Wassail after you sing, because you might not be upright enough after a cup or two to continue.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Just plug the speakers in and enjoy

I love old Christmas music.  The newer stuff, not so much.

Busy yesterday

And today.  But today, I have bacon.  Yesterday there was no bacon.  I had a sad.  Today I has a happy, because bacon.

You read blogs on sidebar.  I eat bacon

Well, just.... fuck

Terror attack at Christmas Market in Germany.

A truck rammed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin Monday night, killing at least 12 people and injured 48 others in what witnesses described as a deliberate attack. 
German authorities said they are still investigating whether the crash was an accident, but a statement from the White House National Security Council (NSC) said the incident "appears to have been a terrorist attack."

This is what they do in their countries.  This is what they will do in ours.

It's a classic

The Mrs. and I heard the remake done by that desiccated hag, so I needed some cleanser to clean my brain out.  The original works rather well.

Eartha Kitt.  Mmmmmmm.

Back jacked up again

Just another reminder from Father Time that I can't do a lot of the things I used to do.

The bastard.

What the fucking fuck?

Just when I think I've seen the pinnacle of human stupidity, someone out there has to prove me wrong.

I just can't....  I mean, really....

The sound isn't safe for work.  Just sayin'.

Weather in Virginia is wierd

It was 25 degrees when I woke up this morning.  It's currently 52 degrees at almost 2200 hrs.  It'll be in the sixties tomorrow.

Yeah.  I know.

Bill Whittle

On "Fake News"

The NYT is renting out eight floors

That's a good start.  I can't wait until the NYT building is referenced like the Sears Tower.  Yeah, it used to hold that business, but they went broke and had to leave....

So there'a a video out of Oklahoma U running back Joe Mixon punching a woman.

Horrible, right?  Like, let's lynch the guy, right?

Well, the video shows the woman lunging at Mixon and pushing him in the chest.  Mixon does a little lunge at the girl, and then steps back, whereupon the woman slaps him, and he cold-cocks her.  Twitchy has a link about the Twitter aftermath that includes the actual video.  The action is at 32 seconds.

Ladies and Gents....  here is where Ragin' Dave puts on his cold-hearted thinking hat and pisses people off.

If you put your hands on a man in a violent manner, be prepared for a violent response.  Period.

"OH BUT DAVE, IT'S WRONG TO HIT A WOMAN!"  Incorrect.  It USED to be wrong to hit a woman.  But I'm at the point where I cannot apply old traditions to the new generation.  Women are JUST LIKE MEN, remember?  If I refuse to treat a woman like I would treat a man, that's MISOGYNY!  SEXISM!  ABLEISM!

And let's not forget that chivalry was a code of honor followed by BOTH genders.  It was based on mutual respect for the other.  Please show me where chivalry, or just old-fashioned manners holds sway on a college campus these days?  Modern Feminists are all about how us old white men need to die off, and how they're so much better than us, and how we're a cancer on the world.  And I'm supposed to dip my hat and pretend that they're ladies worthy of respect?  Nah, no thanks.  Not until they prove that they deserve it, and Amelia Molitor has proven the exact opposite.

So I'm just going to lay it out there:  If a woman feels like she's strong enough to assault a man, then she should expect a violent response back.  Mixon didn't stand there and beat her while she was down.  She assaulted Mixon, he took one swing, she went to sleep, and he left.  If I was on the jury, I wouldn't convict him of a damn thing.  It was a justified response.  And maybe the next time little Miss Molitor feels like assaulting someone, she'll think again and keep her hands to herself.

Welcome to EQUALITY, baby.  Welcome to being treated JUST LIKE A MAN would be treated in this situation.  You like that?  No?  Deal with it.

These people claim to be the "smart" ones

Clinton campaign desperately trying to spin their stupidity, incompetence and ignorance into "LOOK AT THE RUSSIANS!"

The story is about the idiocy of falling for phishing! How is that "hard to see coming"? And what's the point of tracing it? Just never fall for it and the problem is solved, wherever the hell it came from. The Russians don't deserve special credit for devious genius. The Clinton campaign deserves to be lambasted for its shocking stupidity. And these are people who wanted to be trusted with the nuclear codes and who relied on the argument that Donald Trump is a dangerous ignoramus.

Look, we shouldn't be shocked that the same corrupt organization that put Above Top Secret classified info on a private email server fell for a phishing scam.  They deserve every bit of scorn and mockery that gets heaped on their heads.  I have to take a cyber-security class every friggin' year as part of my job training, and it's the same damn class, every year.  Same damn things they cover, over and over and over.  If any of these blithering shitstains had bothered to just follow the same basic security protocols that anyone with a security clearance has to follow, they would have been fine.

But Clinton and her team were so stupid, so arrogant, so corrupt, that they couldn't do that.

So now we're treated to round after round of "THE ROOSKIES IS IN MY EMAILS!"

The joys of science!

So the Mrs. and I have been keeping an ale yeast alive for a couple of batches to see what the end result tastes like.  We started with a Nottingham Ale yeast, and made an apple cider with it.  It was good, but dry.  After I bottled the cider, I started a test batch of apple cyser; apple juice and honey instead of just plain juice.  I bottled it up about two weeks ago and did my usual bottle priming.  As of today, it's still not carbonated.

But a-ha, I had forgotten to do my math!  The S.G. was 1.062, and the final gravity was 0.992.  And running through my calculations, that puts the ABV at about...

9.2%, give or take.

From an ale yeast.  Holy crap, no wonder it's not carbonating!  That yeast is at the top end of it's range!  If I keep this up I'll have to invest in a keg and CO2 bottle.

I saved the yeast from that batch and I'll be starting up a blueberry batch.  The temps in the basement are running at around 60 degrees right now, so it'll be a slow batch.  We also got some lager yeast today, and I'll be making more cider and beer with that, since lagers do better in colder temps.  It's all an experiment, right?

And I'd better find some folks to help me drink this stuff, or I'll be pickled before too long.

Oooo, I'll do a blueberry cider....

I can handle the cold

But an hour and a half on the motorcycle and highway speeds when it's 40-50 degrees does chill a man.

Just sayin.

Fake News

You have to wonder - since the Obama Administration didn't give a shit about the Chinese hacking OPM's database (to the tune of 20+ MILLION people having their personal info stolen) and they didn't give a shit about any other hacking by China, Russia, or anyone else, why are they freaking out about it now?  It's not like they didn't have any warning!

Huh.  It's almost as if they're perfectly fine with hacking so long as it hurts America (and thus by extension helps the Democrat party).  Go figure.

Turn signals

Apparently, the use of turn signals is a lost art in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Just a random observation.

74 questions

The Department of Energy (gigglesnort) has been handed a questionnaire, 74 questions in total.  Just reading this list reassures me that while Trump might not be the greatest President ever, he'll do quite a bit to ensure this country continues on for a bit.

Go.  Read.  It's awesome.

My wife an I have the ION Job Rocker plus at home, and we love it.  Woot has it for $79 today.

This speaker rocks.  And that's much less than we paid for it retail.

And another thing!




Yeah, I know the record.  But we're actually in a bowl game this year!  We have hope!  A small, faint smidgen of hope, but HOPE NONETHELESS!

Update:  21-17 Army!


Stolen from Twitter

I'm on Gab now, but I still like to go to twitter and try to trigger the liberal drones that infest that website.

Would you support a person who claimed that they should have been born with one arm, and they want to cut their left arm off in order to match up with out they feel?  I didn't think so.  You'd try to get them some help.

Other than actual hermaphrodites, which are less than 1% of the population, there are only two sexes:  Male and Female.  Everything else is a mental disorder.

Long day


Shitty hearing confirmed.  My range of hearing is fine in the vocal ranges, so it's not like I'm going deaf.  I just have some damage caused by, well...  gunfire.  Funny how that happens in the Army, right?

Ah well.  Now I have to find something else to blame my singing on....

December 7th

A day that will live in infamy.

Or, if you're a Pinko Commie Red-Diaper Doper Baby Leftist, the day American got what was coming to it by peace-loving, never-warlike, totally non-aggressive Japan.

I've been to the USS Arizona Memorial.  It's a sobering, solemn place.  There is evil in the world because some people are evil.  There is bad in the world because bad people to bad things.  We can debate about the roots of evil, and what makes people go bad, but the bottom line can be summed up very simple.  There are bad people.  They want to do, will do and have done bad things.  And sometimes, you need hard men with guns to stop those bad people.

The Left in America has spent generations undoing those lessons.  I expect more episodes like December 7th, and September 11th.  

Anyone who clings to the historically untrue -- and -- thoroughly immoral doctrine that violence never solves anything I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler would referee. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor; and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms. 
We paid on December 7th.  We paid on September 11th.  And thanks to the pipedream Marxist culture that's overtaken America, we'll pay again in the future.
Sorry I'm not too happy today.

Growing old

Had my PHA today.  That's "Periodic Health Assessment" for those out of the military.  And they confirmed that my hearing is definitely not what it was.  Specifically in the range of things like explosions and gunfire.

Huh.  Gosh, I wonder what could have caused THAT?

I have to go back tomorrow for a second test, and if that confirmed the fuck-upedness of my hearing, there will be another test to determine the new baseline.

I hate getting old.

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

I could watch this for hours

Rainy Day on the Roads

What is it about rain that makes the people around here take a double dose of professional-grade stupidity before they get behind the wheel of their cars?


It's not like Kalifornia, where almost everyone is a dipshit and it only rains a couple days out of the year.  This is Virginia.  It rains here.  No matter the season.  So it's not like they don't know what rain is, or what it does to the roads.

I'm amazed that these people aren't careening off each other like five year olds on a sugar bender driving bumper cars.

Saturday, December 03, 2016

A nice little round-up

Of exactly how much the Democrat Media hates America and the average American people.  With a bonus of the best of Jonny Gruber, the lying shitweasel who helped write and promote Obamacare.  I enjoy his sneering little snicker when he talks about how stupid the American voter is.

That's only one side, little Jonny Boy.  There was one side of the debate who knew you were lying, could point out the lies, and did so.

Anyways, gotta go.

Long Day

I spent the day dealing with a funeral; no one I knew, but a USMC Master Sergeant who did three tours in Viet Nam.

Sometimes, even if it's not personal, it takes a bit out of you.  The driving both ways doesn't help.  And I get to work through the weekend.  Yay.

Hey look!  I blogroll!  I suggest you hit it for any real content.

Thursday, December 01, 2016

OK, so.....

I got my wife to watch the "Squatty Potty" commercial, because I think it's funny as hell.

I giggle like a fiend every time I see that.  But little did I know that the same company had come out with a new product, and an equally off-the-wall commercial for it:

So, she's watching and giggling because her sense of humor and mine sorta-kinda match up but not really but close enough to mix well.

And now, every time she goes to drop a Duke, her phrase is "I have to go commune with the unicorns!"  Yes, her every scatological phrase now references unicorns in some form or fashion.

She gets me.  So hard.

Nancy Pelosi retained as Minority Leader

Awesome.  Just awesome.  A super-rich limousine liberal married to a rent-seeking San Francisco douchebag, who highlights the absolute hypocrisy of the Left (refusing to use union work in their companies, for example) who has helped lead the most disastrous period in Democrat Party history in terms of seats held nation wide and at the state level, is going to be leading the House Democrats for at least another two years, unless she kicks the bucket.  But given the sheer amount of Botox injected into her face, if she died, would anyone actually notice?  And she's from San Francisco, so the smell of nasty unwashed hippy would cover up the stench of her decaying corpse for at least a month or so.

Ah well.  Never interrupt your enemy when they're making a mistake, right?

Absolutely sick

We live in an age where people who are supposed to protect children are now lobbying for people to be able to molest them.  This is from (formerly Great) Britain.

EVIDENCE has emerged that the views of the Paedophile Information Exchange influenced policy-making at the National Council for Civil Liberties when it was run by former Labour Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt. 
Today we publish extracts from an NCCL report written for the Criminal Law Revision Committee in 1976 when Mrs Hewitt was general secretary. 
It says: “Where both partners are aged 10 or over, but under 14, a consenting sexual act should not be an offence. As the age of consent is arbitrary, we propose an overlap of two years on either side of 14. 
“Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage. 
“The Criminal Law Commission should be prepared to accept the evidence from follow-up research on child ‘victims’ which show there is little subsequent effect after a child has been ‘molested’. 
“The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage. 
“The present legal penalties are too high and reinforce the misinformation and prejudice. The duty of the court should be to inquire into all the relevant circumstances with the intention, not of meting out severe punishment, but of determining the best solution in the interests of both child and paedophile.”
Just stop and take a look at those statements.  These people are arguing FOR paedophilia, and they were lobbying the government of England to allow it.  And they actually had people who were listening to them!  It brings to mind something I posted last year, from someone who's seen it first-hand.

What sets gay culture apart from straight culture is the belief that early sex is good and beneficial, and the sure knowledge (don’t think for a second that they DON’T know) that the only way to produce another homosexual is to provide a boy with sexual experiences BEFORE he can be “ruined” by attraction to a girl.

There is absolutely no good reason for an adult to be having sex with a kid.  None.  There is no good reason for people to advocate child/adult sexual activities.  None.  Period, full stop.  If there is someone out there advocating for adults to be able to have sex with children, it's because they either WANT to do so, or are already doing so.

I'm guessing the latter, based on what I've seen in this modern age.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Don't Pick Romney Edition

From the Z Man...

The fact is, the meritocratic system that supports the managerial class is ruthlessly authoritarian. If you don’t check the right boxes, you cannot advance. This system is by design intended to boil off anything resembling dissent or innovation. It is why the Buckley Right locked shields with the Left in opposition to Trump. Their loyalty is to a system that has bestowed credentials and honors on them, along with a lifestyle they could never achieve outside in the dreaded private sector. Political ideology is just a decoration.

Read the whole thing.  We have a chance to actually have a real person in office, not some Establishment politician feeding us more lies while they go about looting the country for their own political gain.  DON'T FUCK IT UP BY GIVING PLUM JOBS TO ESTABLISHMENT POLITICIANS!

Keith Ellison is a racist

Don't be shocked.  You know it.  You all knew it.  He's a black muslim; you knew he was a racist from the moment he took the national stage.

Democratic Minnesota Representative and Democratic National Committee chairman candidate Keith Ellisononce called for slavery reparations and a separate country for black Americans in a university newspaper column. 
Ellison’s writings while a student at the University of Minnesota law school– under the name “Keith Hakim”– raised eyebrows when he announced his first congressional run in 2006. The Weekly Standardnoted that “Ellison refers to ‘Minister Louis Farrakhan,’ defends Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and speaks in the voice of a Nation of Islam advocate… ‘Hakim’ demands reparations for slavery and throws in a demand for an optional separate homeland for American blacks.”

This is why I don't get upset at white racists calling for segregation; you could take both the white racists and the black racists, and after changing a few names here and there, they would sound almost exactly alike.

The only real difference here is that Keith Ellison wants Whitey to pay money for something that happened a century and a half ago, while I presume the KKK and the Skinheads do not.  Other than that, what's the real difference?

More movies I don't have to waste money on

"Star Wars: Rogue One writers get political"

When I hear that some empty-headed dipshits out in Hollywood are "getting political", I automatically know that some leftist bullshit is getting thrown.  Since these Red Diaper Doper Babies have put their diaper pin through the Rebel Alliance symbol to show...  something or other....  I'm going to treat them as they deserve to be treated and not spend a single dime on their movie, on their merchandise, or anything related that would put my coin in their pocket.

Fuck 'em and feed 'em fishheads.

Racist White Cubans!

Racist White Cubans everywhere!

Remember when George Zimmerman, after the Left accused him of being a racist hater and THEN found out that he was Hispanic, called him a "White Hispanic"?

Race Obsessed Idiot:  Welcome, my brown Cuban brothers!



You can't make this shit up.  If you wrote a book of Leftist blatherings, you'd be accused of stretching the suspension of disbelief way too far for anyone to take you seriously.

So, imagine this

Trump has a "bundler", a political operative who's job it is to collect lots of cash for his politician.

Now, imagine if the bundler, we'll call him "Mr. Smith", was 66 years old and had a 25 year old girl friend.

Sketchy?  Maybe kinda sorta make you think he had a few screws loose?

Now let's say that Mr. Smith has been arrested for having sex with a 15 year old girl.  Think it would be in the news?  Front page, A1, above the fold?  You're damn right it would be.

So when Obama's homosexual bundler, a 66 year old gay man with a 25 year old boyfriend who was arrested for having sex with a 15 year old boy gets arrested, why is it not news?

Remember, the very same people who are screaming about "fake news" are refusing to report on Obama's homosexual bundler getting arrested for molesting a 15 year old boy.

Hanging is too good for them.

Fidel Castro is DEAD!

That bastard is finally getting his eternal reward - roasting in Hell.  I only hope they place his grave somewhere I can eventually get to so I can piss on it.

Thursday, November 24, 2016

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, and especially right now.  Lots of personal stuff that I don't want to put out on the internet, but I can honestly say that prayers have been answered.  Sometimes it doesn't look like it.  Sometimes, you have to take a step back and learn that despite the crap that life has thrown at you, you've been spared a lot of grief.

I'm upright, I'm breathing, and the Ragin' Family is ready to take on all comers.

Black Friday Nope

Had to go to the store today for some medical supplies for the Mrs.  Stores around here are already gearing up for Black Friday.

I refuse to leave the boundaries of my yard tomorrow.  Screw that noise.  You couldn't pay me to go to a store.

Maybe I'll venture out on Saturday and see if sanity has returned to the country.

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

This is Obama's America

Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck, who never met a black racist that he didn't love (as he's a racist himself) pushed the Black Lives Matter racists into larger fits of violence, until we now have crap like this on the streets.



Keep your powder dry, folks.  The damage that Barack Hussein Obama has done to this country cannot be repaired.  You can't close Pandora's Box.  We have been "FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED", and it's going to lead to bloodshed.

There's no debating with people who are running around screaming for cops to be murdered.  There's no dialog you can have with that kind of mindless hatred.

I wish this were an Onion article

Loyola University Maryland was going to have an "America" party.  This was decided well before the election of Donald Trump.  Now that the Donald is the Pres-elect?

According to The Daily Caller, one female student told Loyola's Student Government Association that she felt like "a victim of horrible hate words," and expected to be re-traumatized at the party. The university administration intervened as well, pressuring SGA to change course.
"None of it is positive and it sounds very alienating, divisive and harmful," said Executive Vice President Susan Donovan in an email. "We have made progress in providing a welcoming climate on campus and do we want to reverse that progress with a theme that divides us?" 
Dean of Students Sheilah Horton fretted that the America-themed party "provides an opportunity for students to dress or behave in a way that offends or oppresses others." She noted that even one negative event could cause the entire community to feel unsafe.

These special little snowflakes need to GROW THE FUCK UP.  A party that celebrates the country you live in is not divisive, unless you just happen to hate the entire idea of America.  And if that's the case, then pack your bags and GET THE FUCK OUT.

There is no nice way to say it:  These people are intellectual children, shitting on the country that allows them to live in their protective little bubble.  And like all naughty children, they need to be spanked.

Who the hell is Gigi Hadid?

Is she famous for anything other than having tits and ass?


Then I don't give two shits about her opinion.

Pray for the Police

The Commie Agitator in Chief has done his job well.  Three cops ambushed last night.  One dead, two still kicking even though one was shot in the face.  Twice.

Maybe if President Faily McWorsethanCarter hadn't spent the past eight years stirring up racial hatred as a way to gain political power, we wouldn't be seeing this level of violence right now.  But since that jug-eared example of what happens when you mix Shit with Failure has done nothing productive in his life, he needed that racial hatred.  Without that racial hatred, he's nothing.

There's Obama's legacy for ya - a country more racially divided, and cops being ambushed and shot in the face.  Way to go, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck!

I literally cannot wait for that monumentally stupid, completely narcissistic, thin-skinned, ball-less little bitch to leave D.C.

Mulching mowers rock

Lots of leaves falling down around the house.  It's that time of year, you just have to deal with it.  Lots of folks out raking leaves today.  I saw them as I was going for my morning run.  Me?  Heh.

Mulching mower, baby.  Grind those leaves up.  Put them right back into the ground and let them feed the yard for the next year.

There will come a time when I have to rake, just because of the sheer amount of leaves that are going to drop.  If you had my address (and you don't) and you looked at my house on Google Maps, you couldn't see my roof.  I've got so many trees around that you literally can't see my house or my yard.  If I actually owned this house instead of renting it, I'd be clearing trees for at least fifty feet in every direction.

But it's not my house.  I've made the suggestion.  It's been ignored.  I'm not about to bust my ass on a piece of property that I don't own.  I'll do maintenance, but if they want me to do improvements they can pay me.

Looking at chainsaws, probably going to purchase on in the next couple of months.  There's a place close to me that has Stihl saws for a decent price.  Dad got a Stihl when he moved to the country in 1985, and it's still running.  He's still cutting up 6-8 cords of wood a year with it.  That's good enough for me.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day

From Mostly Cajun in the comments to the below post:

It's a difficult shift to go from 'Designing For Sasquatch' to dealing with an actual woman that you don't need to hide.

Moochelle's face just got a handprint-shaped welt on it, and she doesn't know why.  Well, THIS time.....

Friday, November 18, 2016

So, the designer who dressed Moochelle Obama refuses to dress Melania Trump

No, really, she wrote a letter and everything.

Here's my thought:  Having seen what Moochelle has worn over the past eight years, why in the name of all that's holy would Melania Trump want to wear that crap?  I'd say Mrs. Trump dodged a bullet right there!

It's not even THANKSGIVING yet!

And every damn store around here has Christmas stuff up already!  I wouldn't mind if it were actual religious goods, but no, it's the cheap, "Buy lots of things!" kind of crap that has turned Christ's Mass into one gigantic bankruptcy hearing.

Advent doesn't start for weeks.  But of course, most Americans today don't even know what Advent is.  They just know Santa Klaus.  Old Saint Nick.

Saint Nicholas was a bad-ass, by the way.  Read up on him.  As in, punch heretics in the mouth kind of bad-ass.  Yeah.

I love Christmas, but I'm starting to hate the whole "Christmas Season".

I'd like to say I can't believe we're talking about his crap again

But I'm not shocked at all.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday convinced Republicans to postpone votes on bringing back legislative earmarks until 2017 after reminding members of Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington. 
House Republicans were set to hold a secret ballot on changes to their internal conference rules that would have allowed lawmakers to direct spending to projects in their districts, under certain circumstances. 
Based on what lawmakers were saying in the meeting, “it was likely that an earmark amendment would have passed,” according to a source in the room. 
“Ultimately, the Speaker stepped in and urged that we not make this decision today,” the source said.

If Republicans want to exile themselves back to the dustbin of history on the national level, they should go right ahead and bring back earmarks.  Yay, business as usual!  Which is the reason THEY GOT DONALD FUCKING TRUMP as the GOP nominee!

Apparently, the only way we're going to be rid of these fucking big-government assholes is to literally drag them from the Capitol building by their hair, curb-stomp their heads into fucking pulp and throw them down the steps.  And I for one volunteer to do the dragging, curb-stomping and throwing.  I'll do it on my dime.  I'll pay for the gas to drive up there.  I'll pay for a hotel to rest up from all the dragging, stomping and throwing.  And I'll pay for the fucking champagne to celebrate ridding the country of these fucking shitweasels for good.

If the GOP brings back earmarks, they'll lose their majority in the very next election as disgusted Americans run away from the corrupt party of earmarking porky bastards.


Just ordered some LED bulbs for my bike's light bar.  Had two halogen bulbs burn out already.  Could be from the roads I ride on, could just be what happens.  But I'm tired of replacing bulbs on a regular basis, so we'll see how the LED ones do.  It's only $20, which is just a little more than what I was paying for normal bulbs.

And now, breakfast.

Overheard tonight

Kellyann Conway, Trump's campaign manager, is the kind of woman that Hillary Clinton billed herself as being.


Answering Day by Day

And it's NSFW, just like his current strip

I consume very little from Hollywood

I don't have a TV in the house, we don't go to movies at the theater, and I mostly avoid the crap that comes out from the Left Coast.  So when Joss Whedon goes on an epic rant about how Trump shouldn't be allowed to be president, well...  that kinda makes me sad, because Whedon is one of the few directors in Hollywood that makes movies I like.

Oh well.  Fuck Joss Whedon and his movies.

I think I understand now why Firefly only made it one season.  Whedon didn't know what he had.  He literally had no idea what he held in his hands, because the very concepts that drew people to the show were foreign to him.

Friggin' Epic

Tom Kratman just posted my mental rant.  How he managed to get into my head and pry it out of my brain, I'm not sure.

Modern, young, metrosexual, multicultural, social justice mongering lefties are idiots. They are idiots wherever found, all over the world. They are spoiled children; ill-mannered, ill-bred, weak, ignorant, and stupid. They are historically illiterate. They have no idea of how the world really works. The only ideas they have outside of the fever swamps contained within their neutronium-dense skulls, filled to the brim with professorial sewage, are the kind of ideas that can only survive inside the echo chamber of a safe space.2 They are, frankly, disgusting, and the similarities between them and actual human beings are minimal. Morally, intellectually, spiritually, they are cockroaches. Were it not that some of them are possibly larval stage human beings, creatures who may eventually grow up to be actual human beings, there would be little or no moral component to gassing them.3

It just gets better.  Read the whole thing.

There is a reason

There's a reason why, when viewing accounts of Leftists suffering terribly under the lash of the EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL RIECH WINGERS, we must turn a jaundiced eye at the accounts in questions.

Because of Rule #1:  SJW's ALWAYS LIE.

Every time you hear yet another hysterical account by a Leftist about how they were treated so horribly, you can most likely brush it off as just another lie being foisted by an ideology that has a pathological aversion to the truth.

Oh, I'm stealing that for my lexicon

From the incomparable brain of John C Wright:

Throw your scabbards away, gentlemen. The sword will not sleep in your hand, not for many long and bloody winters of war.

By the by, if anyone out there enjoys good fiction, check Mr. Wright out.  His "Swan Knight's Son" is an excellent book in the fashion of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, albeit in a much shorter tome.

But that phrase...  "Throw your scabbards away, gentlemen".  Does that not encapsulate exactly what needs to be said and done?

Casualties, you say?

ShitLib Fascists protesting and screaming that people are going to die for their revolution.

The only thing that's died around this dumb fucking bitch is a double cheeseburger with bacon.  I pray that if the Second Civil War comes around, worthless cunts like that are the ones fighting on the Marxist side, because that would be the shortest fucking battle ever.


Yep.  Difference is, YOUR casualties will be full of bullet holes, and OUR casualties will be a hernia from laughing our asses off at the expressions on the faces of your corpses..  Try that on for size, you Most Special Snowflake.  Now go waddle your fat, herpes-riddled ass back to your safe space and shut the fuck up while the adults try to fix the damage that you and your communist pals have made, m'kay?

71 mentally deranged freaks arrested in Portland, OR

And you can see their mug shots here.  There's not a single person in those mug shots you would ever invite into your house.  Their mental disease has progressed to the point that it's reflected on their faces.  Go take a gander, seriously.  These lunatics range in appearance from "barks at moon and finger-paints with own feces" to "Uncle Badtouch, never allow near children".

Their mental debilitation is written on their faces.  You don't even have to hear them say anything to know these people are seriously fucked in the head.

It's indoctrination, not education

So this little post-mortem right here starts with:

1. How easily the college-educated go barking mad.

At this point, I would say that with the exception of the hard sciences, the entire point of a college education is to make you go barking mad.  If the Marxist echo chambers of academia don't drive you into mental breakdown, the coming out of a university and realizing you've spent the cost of an entire house on a degree that qualifies you to flip burgers at McDonald's has to be a huge mental stressor.

"But my Masters degree in Feminist and Womyn's Studies!!!!"

Makes you un-employable.  Seriously.  Who wants to hire THAT?  That's a walking HR nightmare - someone with delusions of grandeur who probably isn't even up to adequate in their job skills, walking around with one gigantic 3rd-wave feminist chip on their shoulder.  Oh, gosh, yeah, that's exactly who I want working with me, or for me!

ShitLib Fascists are having melt-down over melt-down on campuses all over the country, from the special little snowflakes at Yale who can't handle Halloween costumes, to the brainless fucking retards all over the country who need a safe space because Donald Trump got elected.

That's JUST THE KIND OF PERSON I want in my business!  Yep!  Gosh!

For the sarcasm impaired - I don't want that kind of person to be within a hundred yards of me.  These loony ShitLibs need to be quarantined until we can figure out which ones can be de-programmed, and which ones are a lost cause

Wanda Sykes is still a thing?

So un-funny woman Wanda Sykes got booed in Boston when she went on a political tear at a comedy charity event.

I think people are tired of being yelled at.  I think people are tired of Liberals ruining literally everything by injecting their toxic political views into everything they touch.  It can't just be a charity event where they raise money, no, it has to be a five minute rant by the aforementioned un-funny woman.  And quite frankly, if I had paid a lot of money for charity to sit there, I'd be booing her as well.

Tell jokes, you un-funny woman.  Your political lectures are boring and stupid.  They highlight your ignorance and banality.  Tell jokes, or shut the fuck up and go away.

Makin' me happy here, boyo!

Donald Trump has selected one of the best-known climate skeptics to lead his U.S. EPA transition team, according to two sources close to the campaign. 
Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, is spearheading Trump’s transition plans for EPA, the sources said.

We can't kill the Church of Climate Change in one term.  But we can certainly do it some damage.  FUCK YEAH!

Shoot them in the fucking face

Black feral thugs drag a white man out of his car and beat him while screaming "YOU VOTED TRUMP!"

Shoot them in the fucking face.  Oh wait, it's Chicago, the shithole where they don't allow you to protect yourself from the violent felons they've grown.


Milo goes looking for media people, and finds none.


Oh joy

Came home from work.  Went downstairs.  Heard water.  FUCK!  Found leak.  Went out and bought some shit.  Came home.  Fixed leak, except not.  FUCK!  2nd attempt worked.  It's now two minutes till midnight and I'm finally having my drink.

Bill Whittle on the election

Oh thank God

We have a chance.  A fighting chance to pull this country back from the brink of destruction and war.

Donald Trump fought the Democrats, the media, the GOP establishment, and he won.  He won because he actually fought back, something the GOP has refused to do for decades.  If there's a lesson to be learned, it's one that should have been plain as day - fight back.  Don't just accept the lies, the smears, the attacks, the libel, the slander that the Democrats hurl every single day.  Fight back, push back, and you can win.

Now the hard work begins.  But at least we have a chance.

Now I need to go look up some videos on YouTube and drink the tears of the Democrat Media Complex.

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

Yes, the system is rigged

And the Democrats are pulling out all the stops in order to keep it rigged.  And that includes millions of dollars from George Soros.

The documents reveal that the Soros campaign fueled litigation attacking election integrity measures, such as citizenship verification and voter ID. It funded long-term efforts to fundamentally transform election administration -- including the creation of databases that were marketed to state governments for use in voter verification. It propped up left-leaning media to attack reports of voter fraud, and conducted racially and ideologically targeted voter registration drives. 
The racially targeted voter registration drives were executed at the same time Soros dollars were funding other public relations efforts to polarize racial minority groups by scaring them about the loss of voting rights and the dangers of police officers. 
The Soros documents reveal hundreds of millions of dollars being poured into the effort to transform the legal and media environment touching on elections. One document notes that poverty-alleviation programs are being de-emphasized for this new effort. It states: "George Soros has authorized U.S. Programs to propose a budget of $320 million over two years, with the understanding that the annual budget for U.S. Programs will be $150 million beginning in 2013."

Black Lies Matter wouldn't exist without Soros money.  Hell, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck wouldn't exist without Soros money.  He is the god-honest actual globalist who wants to destroy America, and he's succeeding.  Hell, what would you expect from a Jew who helped turn other Jews in to the Nazis during WWII?

Today we see just how fucked we are as a country

Trump wins, we have a chance for a somewhat peaceful reset.

Clinton wins, and it moves gunfire and bloodshed that much closer.

And if Clinton wins, the GOP is essentially finished as a party.  The #NeverTrumpers have ensured that.

Janet Reno is dead

This was the fabulously corrupt and stupid woman who headed the DoJ when Ruby Ridge went down, the Branch Davidians went up in flames, and Elian Gonzales was literally ripped out of his family's arms at gunpoint and sent back to Cuba.

And that's just the highlights of her "service".

The best thing she ever did for this country was fade into obscurity and just go away.

Bill Clinton appointed her because she was so stupid, and because VAGINA.  She was a controllable woman.  So she got the job.  And we got a federal agent shooting an unarmed woman in the head while that woman held her infant son.  Congratulations, Democrats!  Everyone involved in that decision should be burning in hell.

Wasn't it just a few days ago

That Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck was out trying to excoriate Trump for daring to hang out with celebrities?

I mean, my irony meter just blew up typing that sentence, since Bathhouse Barry has done nothing but surround himself with the rich and famous since he was elected.  But there he was, doing his shuck and jive routine, lying his ass off like usual, claiming that Trump wasn't like "you people" because he dared to hang out with some celebrities.

And not one weekend later, there's Hive Queen Hillary at a concert with Jay-Z and Beyonce, the Pimp and the Skank of New York City, begging people for their votes.  And then a concert with Katy Perry, once again begging for votes.

The Democrat Party gets away with this kind of blatant hypocrisy because the Democrat voters are dumb, ignorant, sheep-like morons.  Or they know that the Donks are corrupt and they approve of it.  Either isn't a good look.

Oh, and as for Katy Perry, if you want to see her judgment and decision making abilities, just take a look at her ex-husband.  She married a guy who looked like a heroin-addicted Wookie with mange, who is dumb as a mud stump, and who's only real claim to fame was bashing GWB at some awards ceremony.

Yeah.  That's who she chose to marry.  So we can pretty much ignore any recommendations she makes.

Can someone smarter than me please....

Explain to me how The Stuttering Clusterfuck of Miserable Failure, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck, running around the country campaigning for Felonia Cankles McPantsuit is not a violation of the Hatch Act?

Rolling Stone found liable

Here's what I think should happen - the actual magazine should be turned over to the University of Virginia, and UV can turn it into whatever the hell they want.  I mean, even if some frat house took it over and turned it into the Southern version of National Lampoon, it can't be any worse than what it is now.

Clinton News Network

I don't have a TV at home, so I'm not constantly bombarded with the sheer amount of SJW propaganda that folks who allow that crap into their house experience.

So when I travel, and have to watch CNN on airport TVs, and CNN on the TV in the dining room of my hotel, and MSNBC on another TV somewhere else....

Ho.  Lee.  Crap.

I think that there's a lot of folks out there who simply cannot see what they're being fed.  And CNN shovels out grade-A bullshit.  A constant stream of Democrat-friendly, Hillary-loving, Marxist-shilling bullshit.

Hell, even the biases on TV shows is apparent, once you remove yourself from the cesspool that TV brings into your home.  If all you watched was CNN, you would never know that Hillary Clinton had committed multiple felonies with regard to her email server.  If all you watched was CNN, you would never know that the Labor Force Participation Rate was near historic lows.  If all you watched was CNN...

Oh fuck, Geraldo Rivera is on Fox News?  And he's just as much of a fucking moron now as he was thirty years ago?

What.  The.  FUCK?!?!?!?!?!?!

If this is true, this is sickening.

We all know Bill is a perv.  Bill also confided in one of this affairs that Hillary has eaten more pussy than he has.  And now it's coming out that apparently Hillary likes little girls just as much as Bill does.

Anonymous 11/03/16 00:09:46 No.95833807 

The new leaks being released this week will provide documents in the form of emails, pictures, and videos. Within these will be evidence of Bill Clinton, as well as at least 6 other Government officials, taking part in sexual acts with minors. As well as evidence of Human trafficking that also included minors. 
We believe these pictures and videos were taken for the purpose of political manipulation. In order to make sure all participants followed through on a previously agreed agenda. 
These documents were given to us by an American Governement official when he had come to learn that this crime had been covered up by Hilary and her staff through methods including bribery and blackmail. He also told us that due to the restricted access to these documents, they would soon know he was the one who released him to us.

Sickening.  Our entire government is run by people who need to be tarred, feathered, and possibly hung from a tree for their crimes.

Sorry 'bout yesterday

I'm busy as a one-armed paper hanger.  And going to get busier this weekend.  And then back to normal busy come Monday.

My wife just called one of the fish in our tank a "moody bitch".  I didn't know fish had moods, other than "hungry".

Oh Great

ANOTHER blog I'm going waste way too much time reading:  Men of the West.

The 100 most damaging WikiLeaks so far...

As others have pointed out, if you've been paying attention, this isn't really news.  But for the cattle and sheep who make up the vast majority of Democrat voters, and the people in the middle who don't bother to keep up with events, this is huge.  Here's a taste:

6.  Hillary wants "unaware" and "compliant" citizens.  Sheeple, in other words.  Democrats, to be blunt.

10.  State Department tried to bribe the FBI to "un-classify" emails in order to save Hillary's ass.

16.  Rigging the primaries against Bernie Sanders.

27.  Hillary took foreign money for her campaign.  Which is illegal.  And she knew it.  Of course, Obama was doing the same in both of his elections, so this is once again Democrats being Democrats.

31.  The list of reporters that Hillary wined and dined.  Off the Record.  CNN, NBC, ABC, New York Times, and lots more.  They're all acting as her propaganda organ, and they know it.  She knows it.

Go check it out.

Winning the Culture

Heh.  Heheheh.  BWAAA HAAA HAAA!

"stacks of resignation letters"

Once again, the press from across the pond are the ones breaking the stories about American politics. Here's another possible motive for why Comey re-opened the investigation.

'Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,' said the source. 'They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.' 
According to the source, Comey fretted over the problem for months and discussed it at great length with his wife, Patrice.  
He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents. The letters reminded him every day that morale in the FBI had hit rock bottom.

The FBI was one of the few agencies in the entire US government that still had some shreds of integrity left after Obama and Clinton turned the government into their own private gangster group.  Comey tossed that integrity out the window when he refused to prosecute Clinton for her multiple felonies.  And the rank and file of the FBI were furious.  ARE furious.

And it's amazing how much you can learn when you read a newspaper that isn't staffed with Democrats all desperate to get Hillary Clinton elected.

Saturday, October 29, 2016

I wonder

We all know that Obama, Lynch and Clinton pulled James Comey into a room and put the screws to him, in order to ensure that he understand that Hillary Clinton would not be persecuted for her multiple felonies that she committed.  We don't know how he was threatened, but only an idiot would think that he wasn't given a talking to like some mob flunkie that the boss needed to "chat" with.

So he goes out, and for all intents and purposes flushes the FBI's reputation and integrity down the shitter, so that Hillary can keep campaigning.

I wonder if this re-opening of the case is James Comey's revenge?  I wonder if Comey saw his chance to hit back, and took it?

Boston Butt in the smoker

Five and a half pounds.  It's been sitting in there, bathing in smoke from cherry wood since 1100 this morning.

Finished casing and packaging the bratwurst.  Eighteen pounds, or thereabouts.  It's grilling season again!

Tomorrow after church - more bottling and brewing.  The cider we bottled and primed last weekend is ready to drink right now, and the Mrs. loves it.  It's more of an Irish cider than an English cider; somewhat sweet (but not sugary sweet) and full mouthfeel.  She's in love.  I might just get a little extra "thanks" tonight!  Depends on how much she drinks....

Always double-check

So, I went to go get some ammo.  Among the boxes I purchased was a box of .38 Spc for the Mrs.

Or so I thought.  Because when I got it home, I found out it was a box of 38 SUPER, not 38 SPECIAL.

Anyone in the Richmond area, or close to it, shoot 38 Special?

I'm dying laughing here, boss!

It's NSFW.  It's not safe for polite company.  It's not safe around women, children, and people who heave never been in the military.

And I'm just about crying from laughing so hard, and my wife can only shake her head...

Thursday, October 27, 2016

Well, yes!

If the Media investigated Hillary like they did Nixon, we wouldn't need WikiLeaks.

It has now been more than four decades since the Washington Post and New York Times led the charge to bring down Richard Nixon and his administration’s massive web of corruption and political subterfuge schemes. They did so by aggressively and tirelessly seeking out the truth, and reporting back to the American people clearly and comprehensively. 
Today, both publications have become willing accomplices in suppressing the same type of information they worked so tenaciously to expose all those years ago. By openly and unapologetically acting as institutional surrogates for the Clinton campaign, these same institutions, and nearly every other mainstream media outlet in America, have gone hands-off in exposing what may very well turn out to be the most explosive and damaging corruption scandal in American politics since “Tricky Dick” was reelected back in ’72. 
Not by coincidence, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have stepped in to fill the void. And boy, are the “truth seekers” mad about that!

If you create a vacuum, something will come to fill the void.  Since the media in this country is now nothing more than the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, other parties have come forward to fill the vacuum left by the media abandoning all principles and integrity.  Don't be shocked if they're a bit less than savory.  They're doing the job the media refuses to do.

That said, a paradox exists that cannot be ignored. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the mainstream media are all telling us that Putin and Assange are the bad guys. Bad guys they might be, but in effect they are providing information to the American people that Clinton and Obama do not want them to have, because if the American people have this information, they would not approve of what Clinton and President Obama have done. 
Color me reactionary, but I don’t think Putin and Assange are the folks we should be most concerned about right now. They are only influencing the election based upon larger disclosure of the facts. Clinton, Obama, and the media are influencing the election based on attempts to suppress and distort the facts.

I'll take the lesser of two evils right now, and that's WikiLeaks.  As Clinton and Obama have proven over and over and over,. they are domestic enemies to the US Constitution, and they are a greater evil than WikiLeaks could ever possibly be.

The Political Left are thugs, plain and simple

From the start of Marxism to now, the Left is thuggery, over and over and over.

Yes, the man running a direct confrontation street thug operation on behalf of the Democratic Party had direct, personal and apparently unrestricted access to the highest levels of the Democratic Party which right now are the highest levels of the U.S. government.

We cannot let them win.  Because if they do, this will be our political future from now until I die, which will probably be on a pile of brass behind a wall of American Brownshirt corpses.

Huh. Random "youths" go on a rampage

Anyone want to peruse this and tell me the color of their skin?

A slew of vicious, “flash mob”-style attacks at Temple University left at least six students beaten and bloodied over the weekend, along with a cop and a police horse. 
More than 150 teens, spread out in groups of 20 or 30, descended upon the campus at around 8:30 p.m. on Friday — wreaking havoc for nearly two hours before eventually dispersing, according to NBC 10.

If these kids had been white, or Oriental, I'm pretty sure we would have read about it.

The horde seemed to be targeting people at random during the attacks — pummeling them, destroying their personal items and even robbing them in some instances. 
In one incident, a female student named Christina Laulette was beaten to a bloody pulp and hospitalized after a group of youths ganged up on her and two others.

Beaten to a bloody pulp.  And young Miss Laulette's father lets the cat out of the bag:

“Her and her 2 male friends where badly beaten by a group of 30-40 black teenagers on their way home from the Temple football game,” her father, Joe Lauletta, recalled in a Facebook post on Saturday night.

It's hard for me, when I work with people from all over this country, to shift into a "me-vs-them" mindset just based on skin color.  But do you EVER see mobs of white kids issuing beat downs?  Do you see Korean kids running down Wilshire Boulevard playing the Knock-Out Game?  Do we have gangs of Scandinavian kids running wild through Minneapolis-St. Paul?

No.  We don't.  What do we see?  Black mobs attacking people at random.  Mexican thugs assaulting people at Trump rallies in California.  Every liberal "favored" group, destroying the civilization that other people have built.  And quite frankly I'm getting tired of it.

I love my black co-workers, and I'd defend them to the death.  But I wouldn't go into their neighborhood, and for good reasons.  Hell, even some of them don't go back to the neighborhoods they grew up in!  I worked with a guy who had to deal with "He ain't a real niggah!" every time he went home!

A country cannot live like this.  You cannot have one group of people consistently committing violence against another group, while simultaneously calling the group being attacked "racist" and telling them that they have "privilege".

Yes, the system is rigged

Kurt Schlichter lays it out, and does it well.  He also points out that when the game is rigged, we have no obligation to honor the system that's rigged against us.

The system is manifestly rigged – even Heap Big Chief Warren used to say so until a memo informed her that this meme is now inconvenient – so spare me your sanctimonious crap about our sacred system. Our loyalty is properly only to the Constitution, not a perversion of it. Just because you hold office under Article I, II, or III doesn’t mean we still owe you respect or deference when you treat your obligations to the People like a teenage Thai boy at one of Raymond Burr’s Halloween parties. 

We owe the system nothing. Nada. Zip. Instead, the system owes usfairness and honesty, and without them it has no right to our default acceptance of its results. That acceptance must be earned. This means that the system must aggressively police its own integrity, and this year it has utterly failed to do so.

And that's about the most succinct assessment I've heard in a while.  How many times have I pointed out that the law is the replacement for violence, and if the law no longer functions, or if the law itself is used against the law-abiding, we have the right to return to the violence we gave up?

I only give up my right of retribution if the law appropriately punishes the criminals.  This is no longer the case, as proven by the fact that Hillary Clinton would be in jail if it weren't for her political connections.

Is this dangerous talk? Hell yes – but the danger doesn’t come from us pointing out the corruption. The danger is the corruption. I walked through wrecked villages in the aftermath of a civil war, so I sure as hell don’t need your lessons about what lies at the bottom of the slippery slope your ruling class is tobogganing down. I know – and as my new book predicts, it’s really bad. But the solution isn’t to try to shut us up when we dare point out the truth – nor will it work. As the hep kids say, we are now hella woke. The solution is to demand the system do its damn job and root out corruption and earn back the default acceptance we would love nothing more than to be able to offer again, confident that the system is unrigged. Too bad if our refusal to simply acquiesce to your scam is inconvenient.

The establishment wants to rule us.  The Democrat voters want to be ruled.  We conservatives refuse to be ruled.  And we have most the guns.
