The Anal Polyp known as Colin Kaepernick is back in the news. %$#@!

Apparently this turd blossom is putting on a work-out.  And predictably, every sports "reporter" has purchased a 55 gallon drum of Astroglide for the amount of masturbating they are going to do over the next week.

I'm in a hotel room right now.  Flipping through channels, there were five different ESPN channels all orgasming over Colin Kaepernick.

Fox Sports?  Not as orgasmic, but still lots of joy-juice on set.

If every sports "reporter" got fired today, I would be popping champagne tonight.

I knew this. You knew this. Anyone with half a brain knew this.

Legal vaping did not cause all the problems that hysterical idiots want to associate with vaping.

Look, e-cigs have been a thing since about what...  2011?  Maybe earlier?  So if vaping and e-cigs were suddenly causing lung damage, we would have seen it in 2012.  But it's 2019.  And I'm willing to bet that the kids who have been showing up with lung damage weren't vaping back in 2011. 

Nope.  This isn't about vaping, really.  It's about black-market THC cartridges, and the vitamin E oil used make them.

I'm willing to bet, right here and now, that not one single legitimate vape or e-cig manufacturer can be linked to the lung damage that people are freaking about today.

So far, investigators have determined that most cases appear to be associated with the use of vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Many of the injured also reported using counterfeit or black-market products containing THC, notably those marketed as "Dank Vapes."

"Most cases".  Try "All cases".  Again, not one single legitimate vape or e-cig manufacturer has had any link to the lung injuries being reported.  And I don't even vape, folks.  I don't use e-cigs.  But I'm a little sick of seeing brainless idiots howling about how vaping is evil when it's not.  Not one single Juul user is keeling over.

But kids getting high on black market crap are doing so.  Go figure.

The FedGov has seminars on "Forest Bathing". They actually spend money on this.

And in the meantime the Commanding General of the USAR has to tell his commands to stop traveling because they don't have the money.  But we gots bills for Forest Bathing?!

Federal employees across the government have been attending “mindfulness” retreats, complete with “forest bathing” and lectures by Soros-funded speakers. These events started during the Obama administration but have continued, even as recently as a United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service “Mindfulness and Resiliency Summit” in August of 2019.

How many military members would that money train?

How many IOUs that the FedGov is printing would that money cover?

Shit like this is why people hate the government.  You're wasting other people's money on FOREST BATHING?  Let hippies pay for that shit on their own.

Veteran's Day

And I'm brain-dead.  I got nothing.  No fancy words, no speech. 



I truly hope and pray that America doesn't squander the blessings provided by the sacrifices of millions of men in uniform.

The entire house smells like Andouille.

Smoked it yesterday for about six hours, with pecan wood.  We have about ten pounds of it sitting in the fridge waiting to be portioned up and put into freezer bags.  It's like ham in a casing, only better.  And it makes the entire house smell wonderful.  We'll cut it into one pound portions, so we can make red beans and rice, and soups, and gumbo.



The Mrs. has two hams that are going to get smoked sometime soon.  They've been salted and aging.  Time to put some smoke on 'em.  Christmas is going to taste awesome this year.

Saturday, November 09, 2019

Got the meat all cut up and seasoned

Gonna grind it up this morning, stuff it into casings, and then smoke it for about six hours with pecan.  While the meat is smoking with pecan wood, I will be smoking with a Padron my brother sent me for my birthday a while ago.

The Mrs will be doing some running around, apparently.  Got things to purchase for the house, like small canning lids.  My extent of going outside the house is to the backyard to feed the smoker.

As for me, other than a shower to make me feel better, I'm not doing a damn thing I don't want to do.



By the way, Epstein didn't kill himself, and modern "journalism" is nothing but socialist propaganda pushed out by the foulest examples of humanity that can be put on air.

I feel like a can of smashed assholes right now

Four weeks in a row caught up to me yesterday.  I'm thinking about a nice hot epsom salt bath today. 

And then off to buy pork to make andouille and brats and Italian sausage.  Because hell with laying around.

The Stupid Party Loses Again

If you don't run a candidate against the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party, how can you expect to win?  Hell, how can you expect that people even know they have a choice?

Republicans slammed Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey A. Kincaid, a Democrat, for ending an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last year but wound up not running anyone against her in Tuesday's election.

When I was stationed in Richmond, I would listen to the political talk radio while I drove to work.  Well, on the days I wasn't riding to work.  And my takeaway about the Virginia GOP then was that they were a bunch of establishment RINOs who cared more about getting into the right cocktail parties than winning elections.

Lotsa never-Trumpers in VA, donchaknow.  Hardly surprising given that Northern Virginia is essentially D.C. suburbs, filled with various parasites, marxists, deep-state workers and other people detrimental to the continuation of the United States of America.

But I recall the 2016 primaries, and the VA GOP hated Trump.  The voters loved him, but the party establishment hated him.

So they haven't recovered from that, it seems.  Nor have they made any improvements.  The Virginia GOP is what happens when blue-bloods from Richmond morph into "Upper Class Twits of the Year".



And now Virginia is fucked.

Why are sports writers such marxist idiots?

In this case, their wistful masturbation about Colin Kaepernick, that Castro-loving, America hating one-trick pony of a quarterback.

Every time you turn around, there's another article being written by a do-nothing, know-nothing idiot who works for some "sports" journal or another, wondering why Kaepernick isn't hired, or blaming racism for Kaepernick not playing, or some other worthless bullshit like that.  None of this makes me think any better of Kaepernick at all.  Instead, I now regard sports reporters as some of the lowest journalistic pond scum.  The same people who howled and screamed at Tim Tebow for being a Christian are the people howling and screaming at the fact that nobody wants to hire a locker-room cancer who defenses figured out years ago.

"Oh, but he's totally a starting QB, Dave!"  Really?  That's why he got benched?  Defenses figured out that he can't throw on the run, and his default action is to run when there's a teeny bit of pressure in the pocket.  So you assign one guy to flush him out, another guy to run him down, and keep your secondary awake to pick up the wounded ducks he would float as he was running.

He was never a great quarterback.  He was just a stupid idiot who could run, and now that he's even older than he was, he can't run as fast as he used to.  But he hates America, and he loves to call this country racist, so sports "writers" slobber all over his afro and wonder why he doesn't have a job.

And no, I'm still not watching the NFL.  I'm just sick of seeing yet another garbage article about this particular dumb-assed piece of shit.

They all knew

They all knew that Jeffery Epstein was a pedo, and his pals were screwing little girls on Pedo Island.



Anytime some walking garbage bag full of shit tries to yak on about how Republicans somehow are at fault for sexual assault, just remember that THEY ALL KNEW.

They knew about Epstein, and Clinton, and all his Democrat pals.

They knew about Harvey Weinstein, and his rapes and sexual assaults. 

They knew about Clinton, and his rapes and sexual assaults.

They all knew.  And they did nothing.  And now they're trying to blame you, and me, and every other decent person for the crimes that they committed, or that they helped cover up and ignore.

THEY ALL KNEW.

Damn, I'm tired.

We're past three weeks in a row and working on four.  I damn near bit the head off of someone in the airport last night just for standing too dang close to the baggage carousel, because I couldn't even see my bags coming around.  Do we need to stand right at the edge of the carousel like cattle at a feed trough, hmm?  Apparently, yes.  And people also need to stand in the aisles, re-assembling their crap that they could have been re-assembling for ten minutes while the plane was taxiing to the gate, but no, that would have been to hard, so let's be mouth-breathers and hold everyone up while you rediscover basic motor control.  It's not like I've been cramped in this fucking sardine can for three and half hours.  I certainly don't need to use the latrine at all, no.  Just go ahead and take your time in the middle of the aisle.  Everybody else appreciates it!

Gah.  I bit my tongue so hard last night, on so many occasions, that I might not be able to talk today.

So....

Columbus, OH is a very nice town.  Other than that university there.

Yeah.  I've been busy.  Sorry!

It was a little cold here in Utah.

Given that this is my first winter here, I wasn't prepared for the sheer amount of hysteria over sub-freezing temperatures.  I mean, it's high desert, folks.  We're just on the other border of IDAHO, which in case you don't know is kinda northern.  Most of this state is above 3000 feet in elevation, with my current patch of land more in the 4000 foot range.

So, it gets cold from time to time.

You'd think they would expect it.

My mom was warning me in August that it was going to be colder than normal.  The horse's coats were already coming in thick back then. 

Anyways, we didn't have many trick-or-treaters because it was "cold".  We even set up coffee and hot cocoa for the adults.  The few that showed up greatly appreciated it.  Maybe we and the Mrs. are just weird, but it really wasn't that cold.  Talk to me in January.

Sure, let's just take one step closer to Civil War

It's not enough that the House voted to do some sort of impeachment thingy (but not real impeachment because then there would be actual rules instead of the Soviet style horse-shit that the Democrats are pulling).  I mean, the Left has been screaming about impeachment ever since that drunk felon Hillary Clinton lost the election they'd spent billions trying to purchase.  No, the Democrats had to prove how much they hate America and the rule of Law by ensuring that their show trials were established in such a way, with "rules" so contrary to fairness, that even Mao would stare in astonishment.

We Normal Americans understand that if the Democrats were given a choice, they would impose that same style of Marxist rule on us as well.  They don't just hate Trump.  Trump is a figurehead, a stand-in.  They hate us.  They hate Normal Americans, patriots, and anyone who actually still believes in the rule of law vs. the rule of man.  They hate YOU, because you refuse to bow down to them.

We shall see how many people wake up to that fact.

Just a quick Linky Love this morning

Two pieces, written by different people, that tie together.

First, the "whistleblower" on Trump's Ukraine call is a DNC hack.  This is why the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party was trying to keep him anonymous, because now that people know who he is and what he's done, what's left of his credibility just got shot down the drains.

And in that spirit, here's the second piece:  A transnational elite racing its way towards revolution.  The people who run Washington D.C. don't know you, and they don't want to know you.  They don't like you.  They hate you.  Which is why every major decision they have made pre-Trump destroyed just a little bit more of America.

Anyways, I'm off.  Go read.

Nancy Pelosi's Illegitimate Sham.

It should come as no surprise that the people who loath the US constitution and hate America, and by extension good, honest Americans, would come up with this kind of Soviet-style circus to try to remove a duly elected President.

What's even more worrisome is the fact that Nancy Pelosi's supporters are either so corrupt they don't care about her anti-American activities, or so stupid they don't know what's going on in the first place.

When good people get punched in the face

Sarah Hoyt describes the moment the Left made her break.

Through more than fifty years of seeing slander perpetrated against anyone who disagreed with the establishment, particularly when the establishment was the result of the long march, I thought — like an idiot — that of course they would attack our taste, our intelligence, our writing. I never thought they’d go political. Much less that they’d accuse us of motives that made absolutely no sense whatsoever.  Which of course they did, in the international press.  (And btw US slander laws suck.) 
And then it all became political.  And the shock — and honestly a shock that broke something in me, because you don’t expect that.  You just don’t — was that people who knew me, people I’d considered friends, people I’d have trusted, people who weren’t political, believed the slander.  I lost friends over it. But more importantly, I lost trust in humanity as a whole.

I don't think I've ever had a moment like that.  Because unlike Sarah, I didn't start out thinking people were good.  People are, as stated by Dr. Cox on the show Scrubs, "Bastard coated Bastards with Bastard filling".  And that's on a good day.

Mankind is fallen.  They have been ever since Eve and Adam ate the apple.  Our whole existence is one big attempt to raise ourselves up from that fallen state, and that's the story of mankind from then to now, to forever.  Mankind is not naturally "good".  That has to be taught.  And America is teaching that less and less these days. 

I don't trust humanity.  I have absolutely no reason to trust humanity.  I have seen what humanity does to itself over and over and over, and it doesn't shock me when one group kills another group, or burns down their section of the city (other than the basic shock of seeing humans act worse than dogs, who instinctively know not to shit in their den).  Civilization is a thin veneer of plaster trying to keep a house together in an earthquake, and it will fail at some point.  It's not if, it's a matter of when.

My mom always told me that if you want to see what people are truly like, watch them playing sports and driving.  That's when the mask comes off, because no one is watching, or so they think.  Take a drive through any major urban area these days, and tell me what you see.  Flip on any sports event on TV, and tell me what you see.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”


Robert Heinlein's quote is true, and everyone recognizes it's truth, because humans don't start out "good", and they don't magically become "good".  That has to be taught, either through the luck of having good parents, or through harsh lessons from reality.

Hard times make hard men.  Hard men make good times.  Good times make soft men.  Soft men make hard times.

Take a glance at the Gen-Xers, the Millennials, and tell me how many hard men you see there.  Hell, the entire Democrat Party Platform is made to appeal to soft men.  Soft men, and those who enjoy the destruction of civilization as we know it.

Buy more ammo.

More good music that you won't find being made today



Yeah, it ain't Mozart.  But it's got a hook, you can sing along to it, and it's not some trashy, auto-tuned crap.

Washington Nationals fans booed President Trump

Fuck those fucking fuckers with a chainsaw.

I suppose it was to be expected. After all, President Trump had ventured right into the heart of enemy territory. 
On Sunday night, the President and First Lady Melania Trump attended Game 5 of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros at Nationals Park. 
When an image of Trump’s box flashed up on the video screen, fans broke into a full-throated round of boos, and followed with a chant of “Lock Him Up.”

I'm not an Astros fan by any means, but I'm rooting for them this year.  Fuck Washington D.C.  Fuck it straight to hell, and fuck all the Deep-State swamp creatures that feast on this country from the bowels of D.C.  Fuck them all.  There really is two Americas, just like Pony-Boy Edwards said back in 2004.  But it's not the vision he laid out.  The two Americas are the greedy socialist parasites who infest places like Washington D.C., and the rest of the country that's trying to pull the parasites off.  It's telling that the people who root for the Nationals are a bunch of small-minded, rage-filled assholes who can't even let Trump enjoy a ballgame, and it shows the character of the people that we Normal Americans are fighting against:  Cheap, petty, overly-credentialed, vastly over-paid, small-minded, anti-American fuckstains on America's bedsheets.

If I could lift up all the monuments from D.C. and move them to somewhere else, I'd build a wall around the rest of the city and let it drown in the Potomac. 

One more goat-fucker down

So Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is now mincemeat, by his own hand.  As President Trump said, he died whimpering and crying like a coward and a dog.

I object.  Dogs are wonderful creatures, and I would never reference any goat-fucker to a dog, as dogs have more loyalty, strength, and intelligence than any goat-fucker could possess.

Oh, and the Washington Post is flaming garbage.  Link goes to Power Line, so you don't sully your computer with Washington Post exposure.

Power is out in California.  Again.  With more wildfires.  Look, I feel sorry for the actually good people of California.  I don't know what to do when some guy in the Central Valley has to live in the socialist shithole created by Lost Angeles and California.  Same way I feel about the farmers in Ellensburg who have to live under the bootheel of the Pugetropolis in Washington.  But when I hear about homes burned in Los Angeles, or people dodging poop piles in San Francisco, my only real response is "You fuckers voted for this, and you got it."

There is actually one more thought in my head:  "STAY THERE!  DON'T COME HERE AND FUCK THIS PLACE UP TOO!"  Although for much of the western side of the country it's too late.  Salt Lake City is thoroughly Kalifornicated, although the outlying areas seem to be resisting it for a bit. 

Speaking of Kalifornication, noted pot-smoking bisexual polyamorist Katie Hill is resigning from Congress.  Personally, I don't think she's resigning because of the nude photos, or the multiple ethics violations she's committed.  She's a democrat, so she has no real morals other than whatever gets her the most power, and she's not ashamed of anything she's done so far.  No, I think she's got some bigger skeletons in her closet, and she's leaving before more people start digging around and finding them.

OK, I need to get stepping here, so that's all the random brain droppings you're getting for now.

I've never been to East Kentucky

But this song makes me want to go there.

Rank hath is privileges, and responsibilities. Also, PEW PEW PEW.

So when you get to a certain rank, there's things that are expected of you.  Such as, performing duties to run a range.

So it's long hours, and everybody shows up after you, and leaves before you.  But it's a range, and I get to shoot on the Army's dime.  You win some, you lose some.

Although I would like to know when the Army thought I'd turned in to a responsible adult.

The blogroll is over to the right.

When the band struggles to keep up with the banjo player

Folks, playing the banjo is hard.  Take whatever preconceptions you had about gap-toothed hillbillies and throw them out the window.  The banjo takes talent to play, and finger-picking is even harder.

So when a guy shows up and sets a tempo that the rest of the guys are visibly struggling to keep up with?  Hoooooo-boy!



Of course, it's Bela Fleck.

The failed state of Mexico

The Drug Cartels are firmly in control of the Northern half of the country.

Armed with military-grade weapons and driving custom-built armored vehicles, cartel henchmen targeted security forces throughout Culiacan, launching more than one dozen separate attacks on Mexican security forces. They captured and held hostage eight soldiers, then kidnapped their families. Amid the fighting, an unknown number of inmates escaped from a nearby prison. At least eight people were killed and more than a dozen were injured. 
The eight-hour battle ended when government forces, outgunned and surrounded, without reinforcements or a way to retreat, received an order directly from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to release their prisoner and surrender. Lopez Obrador later defended this decision, insisting that his security strategy is working and saying, “Many people were at risk and it was decided to protect people’s lives. I agreed with that, because we don’t do massacres, that’s over.”

Remember, every time the Left cries about allowing those poor widdle migrants across the border, they're putting money directly into the Cartels' pockets, because nobody just crosses our Southern border without paying one cartel or another to smuggle them across.

Oh, and this is also the same border that the Democrats want to abolish.  Because allowing drug cartels to control vast swaths of Mexico isn't enough, the Democrats want them to control vast swaths of America as well.

Read the whole thing.

Well, and there it is

The Left, who for three years has told us there is no Deep State, is now saying there IS a Deep State but it's for our own good.

In short, it's a load of bullshit, as usual, from the usual suspects.

You could believe the whole “protect[ing] the interests… of the American people” shtick if after all this time and the incalculable amount of energy and effort expended on bringing down the President, all those patriotic public servants have been able to show something – anything – for it. So instead of disinterested paragons of civic virtue, it increasingly looks like the federal bureaucracy is full of hard core progressives and liberals who can’t stomach a non-Democrat usurper who doesn’t share their values, ideas and objectives.

It doesn't take much to see that there IS a Deep State, and that it's hostile to Normal Americans.  All you have to do is keep your eyes open and not delude yourself.  In short, you have to be honest and face the facts.  These are two qualities that the Left couldn't do in their wildest dreams, because it would destroy their imaginary world that they've built up, and it would force them to face the fact that the ideology they follow is responsible for the murder of over 100,000,000 people in the last century, the destruction of multiple countries, and untold suffering world wide.

The Leftist Deep State tyrants-in-waiting think they're more intelligent than you, more educated than you, more deserving than you, and they want to make sure they rule you just as tyrants have ruled over subjects for centuries in the past because you just don't get it, you see?  Time and time again they've proven through their actions that they're nothing but a bunch of narcissistic, ignorant, grabasstic idiots who couldn't tell their ass from their elbow, and their vaunted evaluation of their performance and capabilities is nothing but a pipe dream reinforced through mass group-think.

I have a hard time trying to come up with one single thing, one single action, that was made better through government interference.  I guess the military, as most municipalities couldn't afford an Abrahams tank on their own.  But even in things like space travel, civilian companies are doing what the government has tried, and failed to do.  Under the government's "leadership", NASA went from putting a man on the moon, to sending men into space, to scrapping the Space Shuttle without any viable replacement, to doing weather reports and propagating the Climate Change hoax.

That right there is pretty much a good summation of the Government in action, isn't it?

There's no reason what so ever to allow those people to be in charge of anything, much less your life or your country.

This might be my last riding day for a while

Which makes me kind of sad.  As much as I'm not a Southern man, and suffered in the heat of the South, one of the benefits of living there is that you don't winterize your bike.  I rode all year round there.

But in Utah?  Not so much.  I'll ride today, and maybe more this week, but after this the temps drop even more, and the bike will stay in the garage until it warms up enough to take it back out again.

Although I've been told that there are riding days all throughout the year in Salt Lake City, just not once you leave the valley.  So we'll see.

Oh, just STFU already, you pathetic loser

So the NYT published an op-ed by retired admiral William H. McRaven (link goes to Instapundit, so it's safe).

But, if we don’t care about our values, if we don’t care about duty and honor, if we don’t help the weak and stand up against oppression and injustice — what will happen to the Kurds, the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Syrians, the Rohingyas, the South Sudanese and the millions of people under the boot of tyranny or left abandoned by their failing states?

Right now the last group of people I want to take any advice from is Naval leadership.  The headshed of the Navy haven't been covering themselves in glory anytime in recent history, and idiotic bullshit like this is just one reason why.  Admiral McRaven is all up in arms about the plight of just about every oppressed group in the world, but since when does the oath of enlistment, or the oath of commissioning, reference the rest of the world?

Hint:  It doesn't.  However, there is a little something that goes like this -

I swear to support and defend the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Oh, and given that the Navy just tried to hang a SEAL out to dry for the horrible crimes of doing the job his superior officers ordered that he do, and that said hanging out was prevented in large part because President Trump took an interest in the sham of a trial where the prosecutorial misconduct was on display for all to see, just who do you think really cares about the troops right now, hmmmmm?

And don't think for one minute that we boots on the ground don't fucking know it.

Home again, home again, jiggity jig

Aaaaaaand it's a Monday.  Yep.  Says so right there on my computer thingy that calculates the date for me.

By the by, Kansas City has a World War One memorial and museum that is flat out awesome.  No, I don't have any pictures.  I didn't take my camera with me, as this was a work trip.

More to follow, later, once I've had my coffee and done the things.

We know this, they know this. That's what makes them evil.

Life begins at conception

As discussed in more detail below, I reported that both a majority of pro-choice Americans (53%) and a majority of pro-life Americans (54%) would support a comprehensive policy compromise that provides entitlements to pregnant women, improves the adoption process for parents, permits abortion in extreme circumstances, and restricts elective abortion after the first trimester. However, members of the media were mostly interested in my finding that 96% of the 5,577 biologists who responded to me affirmed the view that a human life begins at fertilization. 
It was the reporting of this view—that human zygotes, embryos, and fetuses are biological humans—that created such a strong backlash. 
As long as people can convince themselves that babies aren't really babies, and we can just get rid of them, then those same people can go about using women as living cum dumpsters without any guilt.  Let that sink in for a moment.

Elijah Cummings is dead

I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the dead.  But what else is there to do when faced with the death of a man who was a corrupt, racist, lying, poverty pimp?

Elijah Cummings, who got rich from government "service" while the district he represented, the city of Baltimore, descended into case and poverty.

Elijah Cummings, who used every tool at his disposal to protect the corrupt politicians around him.

I could go on.  The list of crimes against this country would be pages long.  But instead, I'll just keep it simple:

Elijah Cummings is dead.  And other than a few people around him who profited off of his wrongdoings, he won't be missed.


America first means America FIRST

Can't say I disagree with it.

Personal note:  I thought we were right to go into Afghanistan in 2001.  I thought we were right to take out Saddam Hussein afterwards.  But that should have been it.  The fact that we're still in Afghanistan in 2019 and still dealing with the same people trying to kill us is an embarrassment.  And a big part of that embarrassment was Barack Hussein Obama's policy of sucking up to terrorists at every opportunity for eight fucking years.  Just think of what we could have done if we had a president who wanted to actually win a war?

But right now?  Fuck it.

Obama surrendered and ran away from Iraq like the scared little pathetic bitch that he was, and so now Iraq is pretty much a lost cause.  No need to go back, there's nothing that could be accomplished.

Afghanistan is a festering shithole of stupidity and evil.  The Taliban was beaten back.  We should have left while the leaving was good, but we didn't, and quite frankly after two decades I don't know if Afghanistan is ever going to rise above the level of being a festering shithole.  I wouldn't mind if we carpetbombed every Taliban location and left right afterwards.  Trump might just do that, as he's of a mind to pull our boys back home.  But the usual suspects in D.C. are getting upset about that.

It’s particularly galling to see people you know would screech if Trump used force (like against NATO ally Turkey) screeching because he won’t. President Trump ought to throw this back in their pouty faces and tell them that if the members of the House and Senate are so eager for war, they should avail themselves of the Constitution’s War Powers Clause at Article I, Section 8, Clause 11, and declare one. Let them sign on the line that is dotted if they’re so psyched to rumble in Whocaresistan.

And that right there is probably the best suggestion I've heard on the subject.  Hey, Congress!  You want our troops put somewhere to fight someone?  Then you fucking put that shit on paper, and you sign it.  Otherwise, fuck off, you pathetic sacks of dick drippings.

Bah.  I'm in week #1 of four weeks straight, so forgive me if I'm a little aggravated.  Just wait until week #4!

Cokehead Biden's interview

I got to listen to a little bit of it yesterday as I was driving home from work.  Look folks, if there is ANYONE out there who thinks that Cokehead Biden just happened to give an interview just to clear up the mess, they're smoking crack.  This was planned and coordinated between the DNC and their media puppets, and Cokehead Biden still couldn't pull it off all the way.  Oh, he gave a good interview for some of it.  But I don't think he managed to change anyone's mind.  This was just another coordinated job that the media did for their DNC masters.

And CNN is the result of sadness copulating with leeches.  I just wanted to throw that out there. 

Also - as Cokehead Biden was listing off all his "accomplishments", there wasn't a single thing on that list that wasn't a direct result of being Creepy Joe Biden's son.  Oh, you were on the board of Amtrak?  Gosh, I wonder how you managed to get on the board of a government-ran transportation system?  Wow, it's a mystery!

Oh, you were a lawyer?  WERE a lawyer Navy, until your positive drug test got you kicked out.

Donald Trump Jr. runs multiple successful businesses, Cokehead Biden ran Amtrak and got kicked out of the Navy.  Compare and contrast.


I might be able to afford this...

I love sailing.  Dad caught the sailing bug when he was stationed in Hawaii, and he passed it on to me on Lake Coeur d'Alene years ago.  But sailing is expensive, my friends.  One of Dad's favorite quotes is "A boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by wood and fiberglass, into which you pour all of your money."  And that's no joke.  As expensive as it is to keep working on my motorcycle, a boat would be exponentially more expensive.  And so I've not done much sailing, because I didn't have the money.

But this, now....  Put a sail on a canoe?  I can see myself tacking around whatever body of water happens to be nearby, and I can pull everything on my trailer which I already own.....

There might be a new hobby in my future.  We'll see.  I still have to spend money on other things first, but damn, to be able to go sailing again...

Screw the NBA, not that I ever watched it to begin with

I don't want to hear one damn word out of any NBA player about "rights" or their problems with the USA.



The NBA has chosen to suck China's dick over standing up for freedom in Hong Kong.  They'e chosen their side.  They'll burn in hell for it.

Crap like this is why I bailed on Twitter

When you get rid of the interesting people because Orange Man Bad, you end up with bitter screeching Leftist scolds all yelling at each other.

So fuck Twitter, get on Gab, and may Silicon Valley enjoy the desert they created.

It's not education, it's indoctrination

College graduates simply don't know very much.

College graduates are responsible, in part, for a “knowledge crisis” regarding basic civic literacy in the United States, according to a recent survey that revealed “alarming results.” For example, less than half of college graduates surveys knew the term lengths of U.S. Senators and Representatives.

So, they go through sixteen years of "education" and come out without a basic grasp of how our government works?  Yep.  Sounds perfect.

Higher "education" is one of the biggest rip-offs inflicted on my generation, and the subsequent generations after mine.

Happy Columbus Day!

Yep.  Screw this Indigenous People's Day.  As far as I'm concerned, that's not a thing.  Yeah, let's roll the Apache and the Navaho into one group.  I'm sure they won't mind that at all.

Happy Columbus Day, people!

Leftists gonna do what Leftists always do

Including spitting on people.

We all remember what happened when Trump tried to hold a rally in Chicago. We should expect more unhinged liberals assaulting and attacking those with whom they disagree because that’s the Left in 2020. You will fall in line. And people look at me sideways when I tell them I’m a Republican. This right here is why. We don’t spit on people. We win elections. And I have a feeling 2020 is going to usher in another four years of Trump. And yes, spitting on someone's face is a crime for all you triggered losers who are just horrified that everyone is not a total communist. 

These are the same type of people who spit on our troops as they came home from Viet Nam.  These are the same people who call cops "pigs" or racist mass murderers.  These are the same people who simply make shit up in an attempt to impeach a president.

These are the childish temper-tantrum throwing pieces of shit that would destroy this country in their attempt to turn this country into Venezuela.

I hope their heads explode when Trump is re-elected.

STD's are Nature's way of telling you how stupid you are

Stop sticking your dick there, you morons.

A worrying trend in the US shows no signs of stopping: rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) continue to rise, with combined cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia hitting a record high in 2018. 
That's according to new figures published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It reported more than 115,000 cases of syphilis, 580,000 cases of gonorrhea, and 1.7 million cases of chlamydia over the course of last year.

Way back when SPC Ragin' Dave was in the MP battalion at Ft. Riley, I had a platoon mate who caught the clap from the same woman, TWICE.  He stuck his dick back in a woman who gave him chlamydia, and got it again.

That's stupidity.  And STD's are nature's way of telling you that you're a moron.

Maybe if people didn't succumb to the Cult of the Almighty Orgasm, they wouldn't be screwing every dirty shitbag and catching Satan's little gift that keeps on giving.  But that this point I feel like an old man yelling at clouds, for all the good I do.  All I can really do in real life is point and laugh.

Home on the Range

Lots of open range out near Arches National Park.  The Ragin' Mrs. snapped this photo as we were driving through the La Sal National Forest.


And of course we finished up at a few more arches.  This is the Double Arch, for obvious reasons.




You can see some people climbing the rocks in the bottom of the photo, so that gives you a little sense of scale.

A rare picture of a Ragin' Dave in the wild



That's me and my mom under the Delicate Arch.  I should have had the Ragin' Mrs. get closer, but hey, I know who it is, and that's all that matters

Why are so many "experts" dumpster fires of stupidity and arrogance?

Like Kyle Frese.  We, the Normal People of the USA, pay this garbage employee a shitpot full of money every month to do what, exactly?  Apparently, we pay him a lot of money to travel around the world and bad-mouth this country.

Every time you hold up a government "expert" to the light, what is revealed is a shallow, vapid shell of a human, probably corrupt, definitely incompetent, who holds we Normal Americans in contempt and who never fails to show it.

Power corrupts, but the already corrupt are attracted to power.  The more power that gets concentrated in the shitty cesspool known as Washington D.C., the more corrupt, soul-less assholes flock there in the hope that they get to wield power against Normal Americans.

Kyle Frese is a garbage employee, and I hope he enjoys jail.  It's about damn time that a government employee actually be held to the standards to which they hold us Normal Americans on a regular basis.

I'm not sure I mentioned this or not, so.....

If I have mentioned it before, please forgive my failing memory.

My grandfather was in the Navy in World War II.  I knew he had brothers, but I didn't know much more than that.  My dad never really talked about his aunts and uncles, and the one story he told me about his grandfather (my great-grandfather) is remarkable in its singularity.

There were four boys in my grandfather's family.  At the start of World War II, three of them joined the Navy (not uncommon for farm boys from South Dakota), and one joined the Army.  The Navy boys made it home.  The Army boy was thought to have been killed in action in 1944 in Germany, his body was never recovered.

However, the Army has always kept searching for it's missing Soldiers, and bringing their remains home.  For example, this Soldier who died in the Pacific was returned home to Florida.  There's a mortuary unit who's sole job is to identify the discovered remains of US service-members and get them back home.

A little while back, they found an unmarked grave with thirteen bodies laid to rest, outside of a small German town.  The mortuary unit was sent.  Identification was performed.  And my great-uncle will finally be laid to rest near my grandparents later this month.

I don't know what hell he went through before he died.  I have had the great honor and privilege to speak to combat veterans of a few WWII campaigns, and what combat situations these men described to me sounded like hell, or at least a trek to Hell's doorstep.

So as you either go to or return from your place of worship today, please say a prayer for the soul of PFC Donald Mangan.

I went to a funeral yesterday

A fellow Soldier.  I didn't know him too well, as I've only been here a couple of months.  But in any case, a funeral is not for the dead.  It's for the living.  The dead don't care any more.  The living care.  And when the widow looked up and saw her family in the middle of the churched, flanked by rows of Soldiers on either side, it did her good.

The guy died of cancer.  He was diagnosed in early September, and died two and a half weeks later.  He was healthy as a horse.  Didn't do stupid crap to his body.  Worked out religiously.  One year away from retirement.  Gone.  Less than a month from "Hey, I don't feel too well." to pushing up daisies.

Folks, love the people you're with every single day.  Love them as if you won't get a chance to love them tomorrow.  Because life is funny.  You can do everything right and end up dead before 60.  Winston Churchill drank like a fish, smoked cigars all day long, and lived into his 80's.  It's a crap shoot. 

Every time I leave the house, I tell the wife that I love her.  That way, should lighting strike me on my way down the road, the very last words my wife will have ever heard from my mouth are "I love you."  I don't think I'm going to die today, but God might have other plans, and I don't want the last words my wife to hear from me to be a grocery list or some trivial stuff.

I had no clue about the Viper "Militia"

But chalk this up as another reason to never trust the Feds.  Especially when a Democrat is in the Oval Office.

Americans pay more in taxes than on food, clothing and medical care combined

Things that cannot go on forever will not.  Buy more ammo.

In 2018, according to Table R-1, American consumer units spent an average of $9,031.93 on federal income taxes; $5,023.73 on Social Security taxes (which the table calls "deductions"); $2,284.62 on state and local income taxes; $2,199.80 on property taxes; and $77.85 on what BLS calls "other taxes." 
The combined payments the average American consumer unit made for these five categories of taxes was $18,617.93. 
At the same time the average American consumer unit was paying these taxes, it was spending $7,923.19 on food; $4,968.44 on health care; and $1,866.48 on "apparel and services." 
These combined expenditures equaled $14,758.11. 
So, the $14,758.11 that the average American consumer unit paid for food, clothing and health care was $3,859.82 less than the $18,617.93 it paid in federal, state and local income taxes, property taxes, Social Security taxes and "other taxes."

Everybody feeling all warm and happy yet?  While Schiff for brains and the rest of the Democrat Party use our government to destroy the rule of law and make a mockery out of the justice system?

"Woke" Math in Seattle

At this point, it's pretty obvious to me that the publik skool sistim has blown right past failure and flew into the malignant point of it's existence.  It's not there to educate your kids.  It is there to ensure your kids never get an education so they can be ignorant drones and slaves to the "elite" of the world.

The publik skool sistim is child abuse.  Government-mandated child abuse.

Dear Brits who care: I'm sorry about Meghan Markle

I truly am.  But I wasn't in any position to give advice, otherwise I would have grabbed Harry by the ear, pulled him into a dark ally and told him to run away from the 2nd-rate Hollywood Whore as fast as possible.

No, what Meghan has done is drag with her, across the Atlantic, a garbage truck full of the most emetic US wokeness and deposited it on our front lawns. She has brought with her the infantile identity politics of Hollywood and US campuses, with all its non sequiturs, its bizarre obsessions, its mutual contradictions and its self-evident hypocrisies. The politics of Taylor Swift and Robert Downey Jr. The sort of stuff which, in the end, convinced your people to vote for Donald Trump, as a kind of blessed relief, a form of deliverance.

I was told by a traveler of my acquaintance that Meghan Markle was somewhat popular across the pond, but that was some time ago and things may have changed.  Nevertheless, should Harry tire of schtupping a washed-up actress with all the morals and principles that Hollywood is famous for, I can only say "Sorry, you bought it, you keep it."

We don't want her back.

This was correct, but not vituperative enough for me

Apparently, there are squishy little FredoCons who are tired of fighting.  And since they're squishy little FredoCons, they just want Orange Man to go away so they can stop fighting and be loved again.

To which I say, what drugs are these fucking morons smoking?  What color is the sky in their world?

My entire political life has been one long assault by the Left on America, Patriots, and anyone else to gets in the way of their Marxist dream of subjugating every single free person in the world to their tyrannical desires.  At exactly what point do whiners like Erickson, and yes, I think that FredoCon Never-Trump whiner is describing himself, wake up to the fact that the war will never be over because our enemies don't want it to be over, and they have a vote on how long it goes?

The Democrats and other enemies of America will never stop attacking America until it's destroyed and they can build their socialist utopia on the rubble.  So unless you want to live in an American gulag, suck it up, you whiny piece of shit.  Or shut the fuck up and go over to the other side, the way so many GOP establishment losers want to do.  Oh, but then you'd lose your cushy gig pretending to oppose the Marxist traitors of the Democrat party, and what would you do then?  Gosh, do you know how much arugula costs these days?  Gotta pay them bills, right?  But you still need to hang out in the right circles, so maybe some token resistance will do?  Gosh, you're just so TIRED and all.

I'm rapidly finding out how many "conservative" media figures I don't need to read, listen to or watch.  What the hell have they actually conserved? 

Let the tired whiners go somewhere else.  If they don't want to fight, I don't need them at my side.  But don't think I won't remember their names.

So, the hike on Saturday....

Zion National Park is actually a canyon and the surrounding lands.  The canyon goes up several miles, and then you get to a part where it's just the river, coming straight out of a cliff.  That's still part of the park.  It's called "The Narrows", for obvious reasons.

And you can still hike it.

There's no trails, there's no road, there's 17 miles of river and cliffs on either side.  Wear good shoes.  Make sure that they won't be affected by the water.  The very beginning of the hike was quite popular.



But as you got further into the canyon, the number of hikers dwindled.  And if you zoom in on this next picture, you can see a group of hikers on the left side of the river, just to get a sense of scale.  The hardest part of taking photos is the understanding that there's no way a single photo is going to give you the SCALE of this place.  It's massive.  And it's breath-taking in every positive aspect of the words.


It's also the reason why my knees still hurt yesterday.  Still did a work-out.  We'll see what happens today, and how I feel.

The To-Do list never stops

I had managed to knock huge chunks off the to-do list.  The bike is up and running.  School work completed for the month.  Got my re-certification work done for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.  Peaches canned.  Brewing started!  And then my neighbor gave me a five-gallon bucket full of grapes.

I'll be juicing those tonight.  We'll see if they make it into brewing, or if we just drink it.  There's no way I can eat that many grapes before they go bad, so I have to juice them to be able to use them down the road.

This first photo is the view from the top of Angel's Landing, Zion National Park.  And yes, I hiked up there.  No, there's not an elevator, escalator, motorized lift or any mechanical transport.  It's a trail.  With chains attached to the rocks so there's something to keep from falling two thousand feet to your death.



Did I mention the thousands of feet to the ground? I did?  Good.  This next photo is of the saddle that you traverse to get to the chains.  I can't embed the full sized photo, and I can't put the photo up as full sized because it would cause this website to have fits.  However, you should be able to zoom in enough to see the people, which gives you an idea of the sheer scale of the cliff.



Yes, I have more photos.  Later.

Going through photos now

I have to pare them down from the multitude I took, to a few that people will want to print out.

Thank god for digital.  I can remember coming back from vacation and having to process over twenty 35mm film canisters.  Cost me a fortune.

What fresh hell is this?

Folks, if the best dish from Idaho doesn't start with "Huckelberry", then you can assume that any list of the best dish from every state is nothing but clickbait.

And yes, this is clickbait.

Ice Cream Potato. Only in your fevered pipe dreams, you crack smoking morons.

Miserere Mei, Deus

Have mercy on me, Lord.  Some days I feel like that's the only prayer I should be saying, repeated until I don't have a voice left.

I'm blessed that people have managed to put it in much more beautiful terms.

Have you ever...

Started a hike thinking "Oh, I got this!" and ended a hike with "I think my kneecap might be missing..."

Yeah.

I have pictures.  Once they're downloaded, you see it too.

Here's my post for the day

Hopefully by the time you listen to this, the Ragin' Mrs and I will be somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

Stupid loser aide to pathetic loser exposes just what losers the GOP are.

This is why I can't bring myself to join the Republican Party.  Because they're a group of two-faced, mealy-mouthed, back-stabbing traitorous pieces of shit.

Mike Murphy, a former adviser to Mitt Romney's losing 2012 presidential campaign, told NBC's Andrea Mitchell that a Republican senator told him that there were 30 GOP Senators who would vote to convict Donald Trump in a Senate trial if it were a secret vote.

All I can say is thank god Mitt Romney didn't win.  Between him and Paul Ryan I can't imagine who would have been the first to run over and suck Nancy Pelosi's flop-sweat off of her ass.  America would have been much worse off, and Trump might not have ever decided to run and expose the whole corrupt charade.

And the Republicans who are NOT back-stabbing two-faced shitbags are too weak to do anything about the ones who are.  Remember when they tried to oust John Boehner?  A few stalwart Representatives actually trying to do what their voters wanted them to do instead of kissing Democrat ass, and what happened?

A big fat nada, and the actual conservative representatives got shoved into a hole until Boehner left.  The GOP had a chance to show that they both heard and understood what their voters wanted, and they planted knives in our back while making sure that Nancy Pelosi got everything she wanted.

When the civil war comes, you can blame the GOP right along with the Democrats.  With some exceptions, they're pretty much the same thing.  The only thing that keeps the Stupid Party in power is the fact that while there's a 50/50 chance that the Stupid Party will destroy America, there's a 100% chance that the Democrats will do so.  So I'm not voting for the Stupid Party, I'm voting against the Democrats.  I've read my Heinlein, dammit.

OK, bear with me here

Guy has a sign on national TV asking for beer money, has his Venmo account on the sign.  People see sign, and start sending him beer money.  Dude starts racking up serious coin.  Over a $1 million, to be exact.  Dude looks at his newfound riches, and says "Hmmmm....  I think I shall donate this to charity!"  And then he does.  Iowa Children's Hospital, where little kids with cancer go to be treated.  Feel good story, right?

Until the hot mess of flaming garbage known as the Des Moines Register got involved.

Apparently, beer money guy, Carson King, had some tweets from seven years ago that were inappropriate.  Shit happens.  But the DM Register dug them up and were about to expose them to the world, which caused the companies who had suddenly partnered with Carson King (to raise more money for charity) to drop those partnerships.

And then the internet got involved.....

And that would have been the end of it right there – another feel-good internet story ruined by social media history.  But Aaron Calvin forgot one very important part of Twitter: the “routine social media checks” go both ways. 
And GUESS what @AaronPCalvin had in the archives?

I know that people are blaming the internet for the death of newspapers.  But if the media was more than just the Democrat Party propaganda mill, maybe more people would buy newspapers?    The Des Moines Register is a flaming dumpster fire in the middle of a cess pool from a toxic waste dump, and their decision to attack a guy based on tweets from when he was sixteen has pissed off a whole lot of people, considering that the guy was donating all the money he got to a children's hospital.

You praise that, because you want to see more of that.  You highlight the good, because you want to encourage people to be good.  You do not dig through the past to bring up some unrelated garbage in an effort to cash in on "cancel culture" and revel in filth and degeneracy.

So, Aaron P. Calvin, you feckless cunt, I hope you get fired, because thanks to your bullshit, a lot more money that could have been raised for children with cancer will not be raised.  I hope that Aaron P. Calvin has to spend the rest of his life cleaning out pig stys in the Iowa farmland just to make ends meet.  Because the shit he'll be shoveling out of those pig stys will still be better smelling and contain more substance than the shit he's shoveling at the Des Moines Register.

Our garbage media

At this point, they're just flat out lying in their efforts to get Trump impeached.

Every time you think the media has sunk to a new low, they demonstrate they can go lower.

BWAAA HAAA HAAAAAA!

While I do love how vituperative my fellow Americans can be, I don't think anybody can give a good dressing down like a Brit.

Just go watch the video.

When it doubt, assume the Feds are lying

Feds shut down a school that trained veterans, and for two years has sat on everything involved.

Now, I don't like the way this story smells.  The primordial cop in me says there's a hell of a lot going on that isn't being reported, and that there might not be anybody trustworthy here.  But if the Fed had enough evidence to seize this school and shut it down, then they need to show it.  They don't get to sit there for two years and do nothing, hoping the story will go away.  That's tyranny.  So while I might not trust everybody involved, I really REALLY don't trust the people who have repeatedly lied to the American people year after year, and who refuse to show their work.

Anybody remember Ted Stevens?  Senator from Alaska?  Got brought up on charges right around 2008 election time, and after a couple of years, a judge threw the entire case out and berated the persecution for their abuse of the law.

Remember the Bundy case?  Ranchers out of Nevada?  One of them was actually shot and killed by the feds.  Whole thing went to court.  Feds marching around, law and order, blah blah blah.  Judge threw that case out as well, with prejudice, for the prosecutorial abuse that happened.  The Feds had abused the law, in some cases just making shit up, that the judge tossed the case out and made sure it couldn't be brought back in.

So when I see the Feds sitting on a case for two years?  I might not trust everybody, but I really don't trust the Feds, and sitting on a case for two years, not moving, not allowing anything to happen, not releasing evidence....  well.....  That means the Feds know they haven't got a damn thing except for brute force, and they're using the brute force.

I hope they get taken to the cleaners.  In a just world, the people who do this kind of shit would end up in jail for the rest of their lives.

I do not know how I missed this

Greta Thunberg has Asperger's Syndrome.

Holy crap, what her parents have done to her is child abuse of the highest order.  And what the Left has done in canonizing her is to tie their ship to a rock that's going to sink beneath the waves when the sea rises. Metaphorically speaking.

Trump trolls the Scandi girl who made a big deal about sailing across the Atlantic to lecture us

Lecture us about what?  The environment, of course.  which is why her crew all flew back on evil jet planes instead of sailing back in their zero-emission boat.  And that means another crew will have to fly from Europe to New York to sail the boat back.  Five people fly East, and five people fly West, all so that this ill-tempered brat can lecture us about how we're killing the planet using fossil fuels.

What.  The.  Actual.  Fuck.

That's ten flights across the ocean so this foul-tempered brat can be used like a meat puppet by the Left in their attempts to kill our economy.

So anyway, Trump did what Trump does, only with a bit softer touch because this petulant brat is still a kid.  And as the writer of the article points out at the end:

Thunberg did not endorse nuclear power — a zero-emissions technology — or any other solutions.

Or ANY OTHER SOLUTIONS.  That's because she has none.  She might be a smart talented kid, but she's still a kid, and she's no Albert Einstein.  She doesn't know what she doesn't know.  She's just something to be used by the Left.  The Left is big on using children as shields for their crusades, actually.  Remember the kids from Parkland?  They were on the news every single damn night talking about gun control, and if anyone responded to them the usual suspects of the left would be screaming "HOW DARE YOU ATTACK CHILDREN!"  Because the Left's ideas are so pathetic and weak that they can't actually defend them, and so they have to find other ways to negate your response.  And the best way to negate you response is to make sure you don't actually respond my presenting your little meat puppet as a po' widdle child and how DARE you say anything back to the toxic Leftist politics pouring out of its mouth!

Oh, and the Useless Nations are now allowing themselves to be lectured by a child, and they're clapping and begging for more.  Bravo, you pathetic sacks of crap.  You're even more of a drain on society than you were five minutes ago.  Trust me, the last thing the US wants to do is take advice from a group of countries who couldn't even built the very technology they use in their attempt to tear down America.  When I see that pack of trained monkeys clapping and hooting, the only thing I can think of is "Just what the hell have you done for the world lately, other than make it worse?"  Bah.  Had I the power, I would tell the UN that they have fifteen minutes to un-ass the building before I blew the demo charges, and all diplomatic immunity for any UN staff is hereby revoked.  Then I would blast that building down to rubble, and LEAVE IT AS RUBBLE with a couple of plaques around to remind people passing by that we used to host an assortment of criminals, thugs, perverts, slugs, leeches, parasites and other scum, but that we finally woke up and kicked them the hell out.

That's my dream, anyway.

So back to the little Scandi girl and her speech.  She's being taught the most toxic ideology, and she's being trained to use it as a weapon.  She did nothing but blame everyone else for her supposed problems.  Hey, guess what all those Scandinavian countries use in order to provide their citizens with a 1st-world living?

Oil.  Black Gold, baby.  Thunberg is from Sweden, which exports OIL in order to make money.  So little Scandi Girl sailed across the ocean from a country that sells a shit-ton of oil to lecture the USA on using oil, all while using even more oil to fly crews back and forth from Sweden in order to make her virtue-signaling trip in a sailboat possible.

She wants to be treated seriously, like an adult?  The best response would be for an actual grown-up to tell her to shut up, learn something before she lectures us, and go the fuck back home.  Given how Sweden is turning into the rape capitol of the world, thanks to their unchecked influx of musloid migrants, there's a whole host of problems she can solve back home before she tries to solve anything over on this side of the pond.

Gah. Busy. Need coffee

Here's another offering from my latest musical crush.

He died from smoking weed

He was just a kid.  Yes, a stupid kid.  But his mother was beyond stupid, passing into idiotic.

The doctors told Regina Denney and her son Brian Smith Jr. what was causing his severe vomiting and abdominal pain. 
Neither the teenager nor his mother believed what they said: smoking weed. 
Smoking marijuana, the two knew, was recommended to cancer patients to spur the appetite. How could it lead to Brian's condition?  
As the months went by and the pounds slipped off Brian’s once healthy frame, it was clear that whatever was causing his stomach troubles had just the opposite effect. 
Brian kept smoking. The symptoms continued on and off. 
Last October, after another severe bout of vomiting, the teenager died. He was 17 years old.  

So this kid is taken to the hospital BY HIS MOTHER, and they are told that his problems are due to SMOKING MARIJUANA, and his mother doesn't try to beat the stupid out of that boy?

Denney didn’t like the fact that her teen son started smoking at 13, but she figured the situation could be worse. Brian and she had a strong relationship, and he always had been honest with her about his use of marijuana.

 Nope, nope, nope.  Folks, if your kid starts smoking weed at the age of 13, YOU DO YOUR DAMNED BEST TO PUT A STOP TO IT!  Holy hell!

This kid is dead because his parents failed to do their job.  They didn't even try to do their job.  They wanted a "good relationship", which probably would have been a hell of a lot better if Daddy Dearest were still in the picture, but that's a tangent I'm not willing to follow right now.

This kid didn't have to die.  All it might have taken is one adult in his life to put their foot down.  But that didn't happen.

Oh, for pete's sake....

I'm re-assembling the fender of my bike.  Checked all the wires.  Got rescue tape for any bare wire (splices and other joinings)  All I need now is some shrink wrap to put around the wires so I can put everything back together.

Except that nobody around here sells shrink wrap in anything more than two or three inch pieces.  Which is fine if you just want to cover a splice, but doesn't do a damn thing for me and my three feet of wiring that has to be run along-side the support strut of the fender.

I found one roll of shrink wrap that was an actual length, not just a snippet.  I brought it home, hoping against hope that it was wide enough for three wires to fit through.  It was not.

I found a small piece of flex tubing, much as you would see in your car, in a four foot length.  Ran the wires through it.  Tried to re-assemble the fender, but the flex tubing was too thick for the fender strut to lay against the fender, and therefore, threw the whole assembly off.

And so now I'm off for another TDY, which means that bike is going to remain unassembled until the shrink wrap I order online and I both get to the house in the same time frame.  Dammit, I'm missing good riding weather.  Grrrrrrrr......

Apparently, there are a lot of muslims seeing Jesus

And converting.  Theologically, this makes sense, in a way.  Stick with me here.

God isn't trying to trick you into going to hell.  He wants you in heaven.

Most muslims live in areas where Christians are killed, or driven out.  Therefore, many muslims haven't been exposed to Christianity in any form other than through what their satanic imams tell them.

Recall that one of the great saints, Saint Paul, was first Saul, who persecuted Christians all over the Middle East.  It was on the way to Damascus that the Lord spoke to him.  In short, God spoke to the person to hated Him, while that person was in the middle of a campaign against Him.

Could Jesus be speaking directly to the muslims who he wants redeemed?  I see no reason why it could not happen.

It could also possibly be just another lie from people who are allowed to lie if it benefits them, so take everything with a grain of salt.  Just because it's possible doesn't mean it is so.

The problem with modern music

Is that there are far too many auto-tuned pop princesses, and not enough of this:





Taylor Swift couldn't even sing in the room next door to these people.

People now "confessing" their sins to plants?

Tell me how the church of glowbull warming isn't a cult, again?

And Union Seminary is a cesspool of derangement.  It might as well be a diploma mill, but instead of getting a degree for your money, you also come out dumber and less prepared to face the real world.

Remember, using any facebook owned technology means the godless commies control you

In this case, Instagram, which is owned by facebook, is removing and banning photos of women at the range, saying they "promote violence".

Facebook-owned Instagram banned and removed the image, claiming it violated their policy on violence or dangerous organizations. 
The image depicts two independent women at a shooting range legally and lawfully exercising their 2nd amendment rights.

Screw facebook.  The Ragin' Mrs. has an account for business reasons, but once I retire it's going straight into the trash.  Piss on facebook, and every facebook owned company out there.  Facebook is evil and it's run by evil people.

Get off facebook.  Get your kids off facebook.  It's not worth it.

This is the sort of music I love, but it drives the Mrs. nuts.

She's an EDM kinda gal.  How the hell she ever shacked up with me I have no idea.



I could listen to this all day.

How the hell are they NOT bad kids?

So these five "kids" beat a dude, cut his head open, stomp on his head, and steal his wallet.  They get busted.  And the parents claim they're not "bad kids".  No, they actually try to make that claim.

A Brooklyn mom, after her son surrendered to police for the savage stomping of a helpless pedestrian, insisted Tuesday the five accused teen attackers are “not bad kids.”
Yanika Williams, 41, spoke at the 75th Precinct stationhouse after her 15-year-old son turned himself in for the ambush that left the victim with a deep head wound requiring 35 stitches and 16 staples. The badly outnumbered Kenneth Wong, 35, also suffered a broken nose in Friday’s caught-on-video attack.

The fuck they're NOT bad kids!  Not only are they bad kids, they're violent criminal thugs who are a danger to every civilized person around them.  I don't know what made them violent criminal thugs and bad kids, but I don't really care at this point.  I want them locked up where they can no longer be a threat to everyone else.

The youths left the woozy Wong bloodied and battered after stealing his wallet — and then used his credit card to ring up $200 in food purchases, including a blowout dinner at a nearby McDonald’s, the victim said.

Good kids don't do this.  Good people don't do this.  I did my fair share of stupid shit as a kid, but I didn't beat someone up and steal their wallet.  Ever.  My friends didn't beat people up and steal wallets either.  Ever.  Because they were good kids, not a violent group of feral criminal thugs.  Throw those criminals in jail.  For a good long time.

"Good kids" my ass.  Maybe they started out as good kids, but by the time they're slashing a dude, stomping on his face and stealing his wallet they are no longer good anything, or good FOR anything.
