And more

Man, I gotta get me this album.

Do they still produce albums you can buy?

Why don't you enjoy some music that modern country stations won't play?

When I listen to the depth and breadth of country music out there, I get more and more angry at the absolute bullshit that gets foisted off as "country" on the music stations.

There's more real music there than ten "bro-country" songs.

Here's what the future under Jorge Bergolio looks like

I mean, if you're Catholic and you want to know what the future holds under the Marxist Argentinian homosexual, look no further than the Episcopal Church of the USA.

The headlines coming out of the Episcopal Church’s annual U.S. convention are stunning — endorsement of cross-dressing clergy, blessing same-sex marriage, the sale of their headquarters since they can’t afford to maintain it.
The American branch of the Church of England, founded when the Vatican balked at permitting King Henry VIII to continue annulling marriages to any wife who failed to bear him sons, is in trouble.
Somehow slipping out of the headlines is a harsh reality that the denomination has been deserted in droves by an angry or ambivalent membership. Six prominent bishops are ready to take their large dioceses out of the American church and align with conservative Anglican groups in Africa and South America.

ECUSA has been converged by Progs for decades now, so it's no surprise that it's membership is leaving in droves.  Well, apparently it's a surprise for the Proggies.  But the ECUSA doesn't stand for Christ, and it doesn't stand for God.  It stands for Social Justice, Homosexuality, Trans-genderism, and Marxism.

Which is not how you run a church, in case anyone out there was confused.  But when you have "leadership" like this:

Before being named bishop, Robinson deserted his wife and children to take up with a homosexual lover – 

Who makes statements like this:

“We have allowed the Bible to be taken hostage, and it is being wielded by folks who would use it to hit us over the head,” he said. “The sin of Sodom had nothing to do with homosexual sex but was a failure to care for the poor, the widows and the orphans. Scripture is not as plainspoken as some would have us believe.”

Folks, that's theology straight out of a Cracker Jack box.  This is not mere ignorance, especially from someone as high up in the church.  This is blatant lying about scripture.  This is blatant lying about sin.  This is blatant lying about the word of God, and the fact that the ECUSA chose to make this man a bishop shows just how fallen and corrupt the entire organization is.  

Now to tie this in with Catholics:

Vatican police raided a drug-fueled gay-sex party at an apartment belonging to an aide of one of Pope Francis’ key advisers, according to a new report. 
The Holy Father is “enraged,” since the home, inhabited by Francesco Cardinal Coccopalmerio’s secretary, belongs to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith — the arm charged with tackling clerical sex abuse, the Italian paper Il Fatto Quotidiano reported
Cops raided the apartment in late June after neighbors voiced concern about multiple people acting strangely while streaming in and out of the residence, the newspaper reported Wednesday. 
Once police were inside the apartment, they said they found multiple men engaged in rampant drug use and homosexual activity.

The only reason Jorge Bergolio is "enraged" is because his people got caught.  The upper level of the Catholic church is just as converged as the ECUSA.  However, the various traditional groups have managed to keep the damage down to a minimum, but they might not be able to do that for much longer.

If you don't want to see the Catholic Church follow the ECUSA into ruin, step one is to admit the truth.  Step two is to confront the problems when and where you can.  Ignoring the problem will just be allowing the problem to fester until it cannot be fixed.

Mitch McConnell: Backstabbing Traitor, or Blithering Idiot?

How about "Both"?

In a not-so-subtle chess move late last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., sent a signal to his rank-and-file that the time is coming to capitulate to Democrats on health care reform. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., did not hesitate to exploit the weakness (emphasis mine)

Mitch McConnell, who did his best to stop the Tea Party, who did his best to prevent President Donald Trump, is now faced with having to actually do what he promised the GOP voters he would do.  And he doesn't want to do that.  He wants to allow the Democrats to run things so that he can make a show of Failure Theater while raking in massive amounts of money from lobbyists and other parasites that infest D.C.

If you want to know who is blocking Donald Trump's agenda, you don't have to look any further than Mitch McConnell.  McConnell was Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck's best friend on Capitol Hill, making sure that the jug-eared fuckwit got his way on almost every legislative pile of crap that came through.  The one thing he can be credited for was stopping Obama from putting a liberal on the SCOTUS.  But that had nothing to do with integrity or principles, and everything to do with the fact that the GOP would have lost control of EVERYTHING if McConnell hadn't blocked it.

We've had to deal with McConnell in a leadership position for far too long, and all we've gotten for it was capitulation to the Democrats, and the restraining of our own side when we should be repealing the worst legislation in my lifetime.  McConnell is a pathetic, two-faced political animal.  He needs to go.

Michael Mann fucked up one time too many

The creator of the "hockey stick" graph, who has never allowed any of his data to be inspected, has finally stepped on his dick in a way that's going to hurt him the most.

The inventor of the hockey stick graph, Penn State Professor Michael Mann, is in hot water in Canada over a lawsuit he filed against a climatologist, Dr. Tim Ball, one of his main critics. The results of this lawsuit have wide-ranging implications for everything from the validity of his hockey stick graph as proof of man-made global warming, to the right of free expression. 
Mann is allegedly in contempt of court for refusing discovery to the person he's suing for defamation. Dr. Ball claims he agreed to an adjournment of the court proceedings on the condition that Mann turns over all the data used to create his hockey stick graph that purports to show a spike in global warming in the twentieth century. The discovery of this data is vital to Ball's defense, as he has criticized the methodology used to create the graph. 
Mann's refusal to comply with this aspect of discovery has been hailed by some as proof that the data behind the hockey stick graph doesn't exist, and the graph is a fraud. While it may be premature to make such a sweeping declaration, Mann's purported refusal to cooperate in this legal proceeding is damning.
Michael Mann apparently sues actual scientists who dare to speak out against the blatant fraud and bullshit that he peddles.  This time, someone got pissed off enough that they walked into court and are now putting that pathetic hack Michael Mann in quite a bind:  Either he turns over the information he's refused to allow anyone to look at, or withdraw his lawsuit, at which point the victim can then turn around and sue his pants off.

Michael Mann is a fraud, a huckster, a bullshitter, a snake-oil salesman, a con artist, and quite frankly he deserves to be in jail.  If this is what lands him there, I'm perfectly fine with that.  If it financially ruins him, I'm fine with that as well.  If it hounds him out of any other kind of public affairs, I'm fine with that too.

The name Logan Huysman should be put out there

As a special little snowflake who thinks she can assault a cop and then lie about it on social media.

Burlington, VT – 18-year-old Logan Huysman took to social media after her arrest, claiming that Burlington police sexually assaulted her. She even showed off bruises on her arms as proof. In response, Chief Brandon del Pozo released the bodycam footage which showed an impaired Huysman acting disorderly, assaulting police officers, and more (video below.) 
Not only that, but Chief Brandon del Pozo even responded directly to the girl’s Facebook post, prompting a wave of outrage at the girl’s behavior which resulted in her deleting the post.

Personally I think it was a brilliant move by the Chief, and probably garnered him more loyalty from his cops than anything else he could have done.

But of course, the rancid anal drippings known as the ACLU are upset about it.

The ACLU is not happy that the chief released facts about the case in order to counter lies spread by Logan Huysman, accusing him of using facts to “shut down conversations.”

Here's a clue for the prolapsed hemorrhoids of the ACLU:  You don't "shut down a conversation" with facts.  If facts "shut down conversation", then it wasn't really a conversation to begin with.  It was a SMEAR JOB based on LIES from a triggered little snowflake who thinks she's above the law.

I'm rather sick and tired of the ACLU.

As if we didn't already know the ACLU is a pathetic joke

They don't care about civility or about liberties, and I hesitate to call them "American".  About the only true word in their name is "Union".  But this tweet they sharted out just pins the red nose on their particular clown.

This level of fuckwitted dumbassery cannot be reached without large amounts of drugs, in my opinion.  Linda Sarsour is a terrorist-loving, sharia law pushing musloid who claims to be for women while at the same time pushing for a system of law that makes women into second class citizens.

And the ACLU apparently loves her to pieces.  Which is funny, because Linda Sarsour loves people who blow innocent victims into pieces.

We've entered into a madness period, and I don't know who's coming out the other side.

Got a spare couple of hours?

I've been listening to lectures at work while I sit at my computer; anything to keep the brain occupied.  I've posted a couple of Jordan Peterson videos before.  Here he lays out 12 Principles for 21st Century Conservatism.

I've got to chew on these.  As usual, there are a couple I look at and say "Well duh!"  But there's some that require me to ponder them a bit.

Tenets of a viable 21st century conservatism
1. The fundamental assumptions of Western civilization are valid. 
2. Peaceful social being is preferable to isolation and to war. In consequence, it justly and rightly demands some sacrifice of individual impulse and idiosyncrasy. 
3. Hierarchies of competence are desirable and should be promoted. 
4. Borders are reasonable. Likewise, limits on immigration are reasonable. Furthermore, it should not be assumed that citizens of societies that have not evolved functional individual-rights predicated polities will hold values in keeping with such polities.
5. People should be paid so that they are able and willing to perform socially useful and desirable duties. 
6. Citizens have the inalienable right to benefit from the result of their own honest labor.
7. It is more noble to teach young people about responsibilities than about rights. 
8. It is better to do what everyone has always done, unless you have some extraordinarily valid reason to do otherwise.
9. Radical change should be viewed with suspicion, particularly in a time of radical change.
10. The government, local and distal, should leave people to their own devices as much as possible.
11. Intact heterosexual two-parent families constitute the necessary bedrock for a stable polity. 
12. We should judge our political system in comparison to other actual political systems and not to hypothetical utopias.

I doubt Comey is this fucking dumb

So that means he's just so fucking arrogant that he thought he could break the law, blatantly lie about it, and nothing would be done because that's how government works in D.C.

Comey insisted in his testimony he believed his personal memos were unclassified, though he hinted one or two documents he created might have been contained classified information. 
But when the seven memos Comey wrote regarding his nine conversations with Trump about Russia earlier this year were shown to Congress in recent days, the FBI claimed all were, in fact, deemed to be government documents. 
While the Comey memos have been previously reported, this is the first time there has been a number connected to the amount of the memos the ex-FBI chief wrote. 
Four of the memos had markings making clear they contained information classified at the “secret” or “confidential” level, according to officials directly familiar with the matter.

I want his ass in jail.  He's a liar and a crook who broke the law for his Democrat Party masters.

Weddings have become insanely expensive

A certain fellow at work is paying for his daughter's wedding next month.  He's already shelled out quite a bit of cash, with more to go.

His other daughter worked at a wedding place here in the Richmond area where the minimum she saw spent on a wedding was $25,000.

Twenty.  Five.  THOUSAND.  Dollars.  MINIMUM!  And I'm willing to bet that you, my dear readers, have seen far worse.  Everybody seems to want to go out and top the last guy who blew the cost of a house on one day.

So when I read this, I went "Yup".

Ridiculous as a “wedding loan” for young people carrying record levels of debt is, a “party loan” is even more absurd.  But that’s what a wedding is, once you’ve dispensed with the sacred parts of the service. 
How did we get here? It’s easy to point fingers at bridezillas and their mothers for creating a culture in which a $35,000 wedding is the norm, but that lets other guilty people off the hook, such as the folks who throw elaborate themed parties for one-year-olds, or those who turn dignified, purposeful old barns into “party barns“.
The Mrs. and I deliberately kept our wedding as dirt cheap as possible, because as we married later in our 20's, we expected that we would be footing the bill for everything.  Over our objections, my family stepped in and said "Uh, Dave, we'll be taking this from here."  I think they were a bit afraid of what the reception dinner might have looked like.  But even after that, the total cost of our wedding, including transportation for guests for several days, was less than the cost for other people's reception dinners.  We managed to keep it under five grand.

$25,000 is a downpayment on a house.  It's the cost of a new vehicle.  It's a top-of-the-line Indian motorcycle, dammit.  And that's low for a wedding today?  There's no way in hell I would recommend that anybody go into debt for their weddings, and I certainly wouldn't tell anyone to blow twenty-five large on one.

To the “earlymoon” couple from South Carolina, let me respectfully suggest: If you need to leave the country to gain perspective on your wedding, perhaps, just perhaps, you shouldn’t be getting married just yet. And if it’s not marriage, but the wedding itself that’s stressing you out, perhaps you could dispense with the party and the party loan, and the pre-party loan, and just go off on a boat and exchange vows like Pam and Jim did on The Office.

Or maybe just elope.
