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.

Absolute masters of their craft

Bela Fleck and Chris Thile



If you're wondering who Chris Thile is, he's the Mandolin Master who was part of Nickel Creek when they first came out.

Just a little warning - this song might make you tear up a bit.



Yeah, I expect I'll be busy for a bit.

Late night, early morning

So, sorry about the lack of posting.

It's peach season here in Utah; all the peach trees have ripened and the fruit is getting picked en mass.  Which means that the people who know and like your humble narrator have given us peaches, because they know we like fresh fruit, and they want to see what we do with it.

Well, exhibit A:  Peach cider.  A friend gave me a gallon and a half of peach juice that he used a steam juicer to obtain.  Couldn't let it sit, so I had to start brewing last night.  Just peach juice and Nottingham Ale yeast, which should give us a good dry cider at around 4.5-5% alcohol by volume.  And that led to exhibit B, which is...

Peach Melomel.  That's mead with peaches, for those who don't speak brewer.  1.25 gallons of peach puree.  12.5 pounds of honey.  Premier Cuvee yeast.  That'll probably end up around 11% ABV, somewhat dry.  And since we already had all the works out, we started exhibit C, a five gallon batch of mead using local Utah honey and a dry mead yeast.

So I got to bed late last night, woke up early, went to work, came back, and now you get this sorry excuse for a blog post.  But hey, I'll let you know how it turns out!

There's a dragonfly the size of a large hummingbird buzzing overhead right now.  I'm always amazed at how much life a desert can support.  We're not actually a desert, but we're close.

Tell me again how "education" is so important?

It's not education, it's indoctrination.

Like growing numbers of public high school students across the country, many California kids are receiving classroom instruction in how race, class, gender, sexuality and citizenship status are tools of oppression, power and privilege. They are taught about colonialism, state violence, racism, intergenerational trauma, heteropatriarchy and the common thread that links them: “whiteness.” Students are then graded on how well they apply these concepts in writing assignments, performances and community organizing projects.

This is why there will be another civil war.  Because instead of educating students, the marxists in charge are stuffing their heads with bullshit, identity politics and grievance studies.  They are deliberately keeping people ignorant and stupid, because ignorant and stupid people are easier to control.  Also, people who are ignorant and stupid, but who think they are smart, are easy to isolate and separate from intelligent people who might end up giving them a clue.

So it's in the Marxists' best interests to keep kids stupid and ignorant while brushing up their ego and telling them how smart and scholarly they are.  By, say, giving them a degree in a "studies" that is absolutely worthless, while tying them down with six figures worth of debt.

“It’s not ethnic studies if it doesn’t challenge whiteness,” said Monteiro, who is also a board member of the Association for Ethnic Studies. He described “whiteness” as a 500-year-old artificial social construct that functions as a God, is perceived as all-powerful and never directly named, so that it can never be talked about and challenged.

I'll take "whiteness" over whatever socialist shithole that Monteiro or his ancestors came from.  That's not racist at all, by the way, because either Monteiro or his ancestors made the same exact choice.

I wonder if these brainwashed drones are ever going to realize how badly they've been brainwashed.  I wonder if they'll ever wake up.  In the meantime, I remain sure that sending your children to a publik skool is child abuse, and will limit their capabilities and possibilities for the rest of their lives.

It's not that I'm shocked about the number of bad sources

But I am shocked at how easily these fly-by-night operations get their bad product into the legal market.

The vapor that Jenkins inhaled didn’t relax him. After two puffs, he ended up in a coma. 
That’s because what he was vaping didn’t have any CBD, the suddenly popular compound extracted from the cannabis plant that marketers say can treat a range of ailments without getting users high. Instead, the oil was spiked with a powerful street drug. 
Some operators are cashing in on the CBD craze by substituting cheap and illegal synthetic marijuana for natural CBD in vapes and edibles such as gummy bears, an Associated Press investigation has found.

This kind of crap is getting out of hand.  The question is, who do the people sue when the supposedly safe vape liquid turns out to have illegal drugs in them?

The results of AP’s lab testing echo what authorities have found, according to a survey of law enforcement agencies in all 50 states. At least 128 samples out of more than 350 tested by government labs in nine states, nearly all in the South, had synthetic marijuana in products marketed as CBD. Gummy bears and other edibles accounted for 36 of the hits, while nearly all others were vape products. Mississippi authorities also found fentanyl, the powerful opioid involved in about 30,000 overdose deaths last year.

Fentanyl.  In a supposed safe vape liquid.  Well, that would help explain the behavior of some folks down there, that's for sure.

But back to my main point - how in the hell are all these "dirty" sources getting their product on to the legal market?  And how the hell are they not getting sued to high heaven?

In the meantime, assume that any CBD oil products sold in convenience stores are snake oil, or something worse.

It appears that higher education is experiencing a problem with enrollment

Good.

Those who saw modest high-school graduation dips by 2020 as surmountable must now absorb the statistical reality: Things are only going to get worse. As Nathan Grawe has shown, a sharp decrease in fertility during the Great Recession will further deepen the high-school graduation trough by 2026. Meanwhile, the cost of attendance for both private and public colleges insists on outpacing inflation, American incomes continue to stagnate, and college-endowment returns or state subsidies can no longer support the discounting of sticker prices. ...

Don't get me wrong.  I strongly support getting an education.  Hell, I've been teaching myself new tricks ever since I left the publik skool sistim.  But what you get at a university these days is not an education, it's an indoctrination, and the end product (i.e. an educated population able to function in an adult world) is so far below the quality of what it supposed to come out of college that employers are now sitting up and taking notice.

Say you're in a business where you don't necessarily need a STEM degree in order to successful.  Would you rather bring someone in and teach them, knowing you'll get an employee who will do the job right, or do you want to hire a college grad that may or may not know the job while bringing an entitled attitude and sneering SJW mindset?  A bachelor's degree used to actually mean that a person was educated, but with colleges dumping the actual education (like Western Civilization) and replacing it with mind-eating bullshit (like gender studies), there's no guarantee that a degree from State University confers any actual knowledge, wisdom, education, or job skills.

Look, I'm going to college right now, online.  Part of it is that if I want to advance any further in my chosen field, they require a degree.  It doesn't matter what degree, they just want to see a degree.  So I'm getting a degree in business, because I'm hoping to run my own business after I retire.  It's simple, really.  I need a degree, and I need to know how to run a business.  So I'm getting a degree in business. 

But when I first left high sckrewll, I was going to double-major in Music and English.  I sent applications to all the universities.  I got scholarships that would have cut the cost down.  But in the end, I walked away.  One, I was sick of school.  I still am.  I hate sitting in a classroom.  Two, I honestly think the hand of God pushed me back.  What in the hell would I do with a double major in Music and English?  How the hell would I pay that back?  And why in the hell didn't any responsible adult pull me aside and say "Hey, Dave, I get you want to do this, because you like Music and English, but just how much money do you think you'll be making after you graduate?"

I'd like to point out that we're still paying off the Ragin' Mrs. student loans, because after she got her education she couldn't make enough money in her chosen field to actually pay off her student loans.  THAT is how fucked up our education system is.  D

I guess I'm saying that the higher "education" system can collapse, and I wouldn't shed a tear.  The system we have now is broken, pretty much beyond repair.  If this system breaks down, there will be another system to replace it, one that might not be a communist-infested indoctrination camp. 

Or maybe, just maybe, the people running the system we have now might actually learn something.  HA!  Right.

Kurt Schlichter's response to Beto the Furry

When the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party calls for confiscation of guns, banning of guns, "mandatory buybacks", what they are advocating for is violence.  Violence against Americans.

Well, yeah.  They're pretty much yanking the mask off at this point, aren't they?  They're not even trying to hide the fact that they want to take your guns.  Although I'm willing to bet that there's someone at the DNC headquarters having apoplectic fits because Beto the Drunk admitted in public what they were only supposed to say in private.

No, I haven't tracked down the wiring problem on my bike yet

However, as an added bonus, in order to take the rear fender off I had to remove the suspension.  And guess who needs new bushings?

By the time they get here, I may have figured out where the problem is.  I dunno.  At least the bushings are cheap and easy to get.

This weekend went by in about five seconds, I swear.

Black hearted son of a motherless goat!

Got a bunch of stuff done this morning.  Was going through the wiring on the bike, with the sage wisdom of P2 in my email (and he was spot on).  Got to a certain point, and the Ragin' Mrs. comes out...

"Hey Dave?  I think the swamp cooler is broken."

%$#@(*&@!!!!!!

Get the ladder, climb up to the roof, and sure as shit, the pump for the evaporative cooling system is shot.  Which, given the sheer amount of minerals in the water that form white rocks at every opportunity, shouldn't be a shock.  So let me go fix THAT now instead of the bike, because if it's too hot to sleep, it's too hot for married activities, if you know what I mean.  And I enjoy being married.

Anyways...  how's your day going?

I don't care where I am, I'm singing along

To both of these





There's more talent in that one band than in damn near every modern Grammy winner combined.  But since Chris Stapleton is the singer, he counts for about 90% of the talent in modern Grammy winners.

I've been wondering about this

In fact, I've had discussions with the Ragin' Mrs. about this.  The vaping "illness" is more from illegal drugs and crappy vape liquid, not from standard vaping devices.

According to a new report on patients in Illinois and Wisconsin who experienced severe respiratory illnesses after vaping, 83 percent admitted using black-market cannabis products. While 17 percent said they had used nicotine only, some of them may have been reluctant to admit using illegal drugs, and it's not clear that any of them were using standard e-cigarettes.

Vaping has been a thing for about a decade now.  It seems odd that suddenly there's a slew of illnesses linked to it, and not from known vape devices like Juul or any of the other e-cig companies.

Of course, the health nazis would like you to think that ALL vaping devices are evil and will kill you within a month, but sorry, the evidence on the ground shows that's just not so.

It's not clear whether any of the products in the THC-only cases were closed-system devices such as Juul, as opposed to refillable vaporizers. Nor is it clear whether the cartridges or e-liquids used in the devices were legally produced, illegal knockoffs, DIY solutions, or mystery fluids concocted by third-party suppliers.

Let's go with "Illegal devices and mystery fluids", folks.  The bottom line is that if you're a vaper, and you use legal vape devices/liquids, and don't try to get high with a mystery batch that you bought off a street corner, you're not going to come down with the illnesses that have come to the forefront of the American consciousness.

Sometimes the stupid really do take themselves out of the gene pool.

I'm for it





About the only processed carbohydrates we consume at the Ragin' Castle is whiskey.  All other carbs are either unprocessed, or as unprocessed as we can get while still keeping to recipes.  Processed foods are absent, because they are nothing more than empty calories.

Yes, it does cost a bit more.  But it's worth it.

As for adding sun:  Sunlight makes you produce Vitamin D.  Vitamin D is actually a hormone, not a vitamin, but by the time they had discovered the difference it was decided to just keep calling it vitamin D.  Vitamin D does many things:  It helps your body absorb and use calcium, and it helps with your mood.  It literally wards off depression, which is why so many folks up North need UV lights in their house during the winter time.  Get out.  Exercise.  Take Vitamin D if you live up North, and I'm not talking just Alaska.  All the states north of the Mason-Dixon line should be taking vitamin D as a daily thing.

They celebrate murder because they profit from it

The duo who exposed Planned Murder Parenthood and the sale of body parts from murdered babies is on trial again, and the testimony will turn your stomach.

The CEO of StemExpress essentially admitted in court Thursday that her biotech company supplies beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers. 
She also admitted at the preliminary hearing of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress that the baby’s head could be procured attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away.”

So they will rip the head off of a baby, sell it for cash, and defend that as "reproductive rights".

These people are evil.

The commies at YouTube must be in a panic

Every time you see a video rebutting the global warming hoax, they have a little box underneath the video promoting climate change bullshit from...  Wikipedia.



So now the commies at YouTube won't allow their bullshit to be rebutted unless they get to link to a website so laughable for it's accuracy that most educators refuse to allow it as a source.

These people are hopeless.

I guess I'm still a kid at heart

The Air Force has been doing their thing lately, and every time one of those jets goes screaming overhead, I have to stop what I'm doing and look up.  It makes me smile every time.

Holy hell, I crashed

Ten hours straight in bed, waking up with a puddle of drool under my face when my bladder wouldn't allow me to sleep any more.

Lemme go check my emails here...

I feel like I got run over by a bus

But I have a day "off" tomorrow, if working like hell to catch up on all the things I couldn't get to while I was gone/working.

Here's a video about the "Jesus was copied from pagan myths!" line that atheists like to spring on you.



I will post more, later, but for right now I'm just catching up.

Back home, and back out the door

Got home at oh-dark-30 last night.  Woke up this morning to do a mission just a little North of here (driving distance).  Drinking coffee.  See ya later.

Attention (former) WalMart Shoppers!

Ammo.com still sells all the ammo you need, and they're giving you a discount.





Just sayin'.

Oh goodie

Guess where the Army sent me this week?

Ft. Bragg.

Guess what's coming down the pike?

So if you don't see anything for a few days, don't panic.  It's just the weather.

Wednesday, September 04, 2019

Well, crap

Out for a ride with the Mrs. on Monday.  Heading up Highway 39, almost to the pass, and then....

Fizzle.  Power out.  Blown fuse, apparently the same short that plagued me in the past, that I thought I had fixed by redoing all the ground wires. 

So now, once I'm done with this trip, and working all weekend, and working all next week, I'll get to tear the bike apart and see what I can do.

I hate electrical problems.

When the Law becomes Tyranny, Resistance becomes Duty

A guy married a woman who lied to him, and who was already married to another man.  Now he has to pay her "spousal support" of $3,000 a month.

And the judge who signed off on this needs to be tarred and feathered.

The couple was married in August 2017 and divorced two months later, in October. The final divorce settlement, according to KTRK, required Athans to pay his ex $3,000 a month in spousal support. He told the outlet that “the appeals process would take up to two years, which is going to be $70 to $80,000." 
Meanwhile, his ex has been criminally charged with bigamy and appears to have been married to at least one other man while she was married to Athans. KTRK reported that court records show Parchem has been married three times before she was married to Athans, but only divorced once.
I don't know how long they dated prior to getting hitched, but that shouldn't matter.  The judge refused to allow his guy to even bring up the bigamy during the divorce proceedings. 

You can file this under "Guy lets little head rule big head", but the biggest takeaway for guys here is "DON'T GET MARRIED BECAUSE YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING."

Crap like this just makes MGTOW look rational.

Real Oppression vs. Imagined Oppression

Also, why we will never give up our guns.

Dear Lefties and idiot journalists,  
Everybody has been going wild about how Trump is a fascist, and how Trump voters are racist terrorists, and how tyranny is here and America is a hellhole. Oh, and there needs to be a ban on guns right away, because crazy White racists are going to kill everybody! 
Let me show you a place where the government can do every single thing you say you want.

To quote the movie meme that has made the rounds on a yearly basis:  I remember seeing a movie where only the government had guns.  It was called "Schindler's List".

By their fruits you shall know them

So in a normal world, when you get run out of town on a rail by the people you supposedly work for, you don't get promoted.  Makes sense, right?  If I screw up so badly that my troops mutiny, chances are I'm not getting another step up.

But when a Bishop, a Catholic Bishop, commits flagrant sodomy and sacrilege to the point where the faithful in his diocese chase him out, Jorge Bergolio promotes him to Cardinal.  If you were married, would you take relationship advice from an adulterer?  Of course not.  So why does Jorge Bergolio want his closest advisors to be people who have violated their oaths of celibacy over and over and over, and who continue to do so to this day?

Ask yourself what kind of man brings those unrepentant oath-breakers into his inner circle.  The answer is not pretty.  And the key word is UNREPENTANT

I would also point out, for those non-Catholics reading this, that if I as a Catholic receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist while in a state of mortal sin, I damn myself even further.  But a priest, and a Cardinal is first supposed to be a priest, must consume the Eucharist every time they offer Mass.  Which means that Jorge Bergolio has elevated men who willingly damn themselves to hell on a daily basis.

It has taken decades for Satan to work this far up the Church.  It'll take decades more to root him out.

As a guy who has worked a lot of holidays...



Yep.

Granted, I'm going to enjoy the fact that I have the day off today.  Going riding, in fact.  I don't know if that makes me a hypocrite or not.

Lessee here, where's my checklist?

School assignments:  Completed

Mass:  Attended.

Lawn:  Mowed.

When I read this, all I can think of is......

via GIPHY



#MeToo has ruined Burning Man's orgy dome.  One guy likened it to a dental cleaning.  The Revolution ALWAYS eats its own, Comrade!

Mentally ill man rages that shelter for female rape victims won't let him in

Gee, I wonder why they would want to keep him out?

This week, staff of the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter (VRRWS) in British Columbia found messages such as "Kill TERFS," "F*** TERFS," and -- what else? -- "Trans women are women" scrawled across their windows and walls. ("TERF," for "trans-exclusionary radical feminist," is a generally derogatory term for feminists who do not believe certain things about transgenderism.) This is not the first time something like this has happened. Three weeks ago, a woman seeking the shelter’s services was alarmed to find a dead rat nailed to the front door.

Trans-women are NOT women.  Trans women are MEN.  Mentally ill, but still MEN.  They have a PENIS, unless they've cut it off, but even if you cut it off you are still a MAN, just a man without genitalia.

A harsh truth, but true nonetheless

From here.

TRUTH #1: If there were a magic wand to wave to make every single white person in America erase even the slightest shadow of a penumbra of an unconscious racist thought, prejudice, or microaggression, not a single thing would change in the black communities.

There are six more.  Go read.

Compare and contrast

Army Major gives Joe Biden a metaphorical blowjob while in uniform.  The media swoons.

But when a Corporal shows up in uniform to a 2012 Ron Paul event, the media brought out the long knives.

Remember folks, the media is nothing more than Democrat operatives feeding you a narrative, and if you try to bust that narrative, they will do everything they can to destroy you.

Yep





I got nuthin' to top that.

There is no "gay" gene

There never was.  And they are not "born that way".

The twin study conducted at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, finds that homosexuality may be triggered by environmental factors after birth. The research uses an algorithm covering epigenetic markers from several genomic sites of 37 sets of identical male twins to predict homosexuality in males, with 70 percent accuracy, as presented at the American Society of Human Genetics 2015 Annual Meeting in Baltimore. 
“The finding is highly controversial because it suggests that some men are not born gay, but are turned homosexual by their surroundings,” Sarah Knapton of Telegraphsuggested.
And yet again, let me post this quote from The Last Closet

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.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Hey, here's a thought

If you are opposed to banning pedophiles from being around children, what you are in support of is pedophiles having access to children.

I mean, if you're fighting to allow pedophiles to be around children, then what exactly are you supporting?

A library board in Kansas finds itself divided on a proposal to automatically bar registered sex offenders from participating in presentations at public libraries following outcry over the records of some Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) performers. 
After an event last year in which drag queens read pro-LGBT stories to children at Wichita’s Advanced Learning Library, the community’s library board is currently debating a proposal to automatically disqualify convicted sex offenders from presenting at libraries in the area.  
Past DQSH events have come under fire for putting convicted pedophiles and prostitutes in close proximity to children, yet the proposal has been met with some resistance.

How many Drag Queen Story Time events have allowed pedophiles to have access to children, anyway?

The answer, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, is all of them.

Among these examples of “inappropriate contact” are drag queens teaching kids to twerk and soliciting their email addresseshaving children lay on them, and promoting homosexuality and gender fluidity. Some events have also come under fire for featuring performers behind X-rated skits involving children’s characters, and for attracting radical transgender protesters. 
The San Francisco-based Drag Queen Story Hour program describes its express purpose as capturing the “imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood” and giving children “unabashedly queer role models.” Louisiana drag queen Dylan Pontiff admits the events are about “the grooming of the next generation.”

Is anyone shocked that the practitioners of the Cult of the Almighty Orgasm would use these events to try to get laid?  Let's remind ourselves of the hard truth behind the Cult of the Almighty Orgasm, courtesy of The Last Closet:

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.

Anyone else wonder why a drag queen wants little children to come lay on him in public?  Because apparently that's still a question out in Wichita.

I am not a traffic scientist

I can make some generalized observations, like "I say, if you put your cell phone down you wouldn't drive like a fucking moron", or "Maybe rushing to cut in front of me, only to slam on your brakes because there's no room in front of me, makes you a retarded shitstain"

So, basically, the observations that anyone with an IQ over room temperature could observe.  Which, unfortunately, disqualifies at least 50% of the people who drive in America.

But anyways, like I said, I'm not a traffic scientist.  So is there anyone out there who can explain to me why, when traffic in the three right lines is moving, be it ever so slowly, that the far left lane, the lane where people are supposed to be passing, the lane that is for the people who don't need to get off the freeway for a couple of miles, the lane with a GIANT ASS DIAMOND MARKING TO INDICATE IT IS AN HOV LANE, why does that lane come to a screeching halt?

There are no exits to the left.  There are no merging lanes.  You have the median, which has no traffic, and then a lane to the right.  WHY THE FUCK DID YOU JUST COME TO A STOP?

The more I am around people, the more I hate people and want to be left alone.

I have discovered my spirit animal.  It is a porcupine.  All I want to do is to live in the woods and be left alone, and if you fuck with me I will ruin your day, week, and month as you try to pull my quills out of your ass.

Just a few more years.  Just a few more years.  Just a few more years.

Is college worth it?

Well, that depends, but I'm willing to say that 75% of all degrees being churned out in this day and age aren't worth the paper they're printed on.



Given that most universities are nothing more than marxist indoctrination centers these days, I would think twice before I would encourage any child of mine to attend one.  And if they go, they go for a real degree, not Gender Studies or Manchurian Underwater Basket Weaving, or other bullshit.

Actually, the underwater basket weaving might just provide you with income, so that's ranked higher than Gender Studies.

Michael Mann is a fraud

And his "Hockey Stick" graph of glow-bull warming is fake bullshit "science".  Every Warmista screeching about how the world is gonna die and stuff if we don't stop cows from farting is either a gullible idiot who is regurgitating bullshit, or a deliberate liar.

There really is no middle ground.  Not anymore.

Guilty Pleasures

OK, so Tulsi Gabbard is getting the Bernie 2016 treatment for daring to strike the Queen of Kneepads down.  I'm enjoying the shitshow, because:

1)  It pisses off the Democrats who liked Gabbard, and who are now suspicious of the DNC.  At last.

2)  Gabbard might actually have had a chance against Trump.  Senator Kneepads?  Not even close.  She can't even beat out the old white people of the DNC.  Comrade Bernie and Lie-a-watha are now ahead of Creep Joe, while Senator Kneepads can't break into double digits anymore.  Gabbard was young, fresh, and had the military credentials to go up against Trump.  And the DNC goons knee-capped her campaign and sent her packing.

3)  Gabbard was a far-left loon, but compared to who's left on the debate stage she sounded like the soul of moderation.  With Gabbard essentially forced out, the jackasses still running will be barking at the moon and rubbing themselves down with mud soon enough, and there won't be one single person on the stage to step up and say "Look, I'm not crazy like these guys, so vote for me."

4)  Because this is who the Democrats are and what they do.  They are a top-down driven Marxist bloc, and anyone who steps out of line gets beaten until they are back in line, or destroyed.  Gabbard pointed out that Senator Kneepads had some issues.  That cannot be allowed by the Commissars of the DNC.  This is Red-on-Red action here, and I'm enjoying it greatly.  It's like watching a couple of goat-buggering Islamic nutjobs blow themselves up.

Anyways, that's some random crap from my head.

Tulsi, Tulsi, Tulsi...

You killed the queen, but the Palace Guards are now furious with you.

Now, through the miracle of rule-rigging, the Democratic establishment has maneuvered to exact a price from her: No appearance at the next Democratic debate. No more taking down the next favorite.

Democrats gonna Democrat.  They did it to Bernie in 2016, they're doing it to Gabbard in 2020.

Light blogging alert

Sorry folks, I'm in a place where my internet hook-up is almost dial-up slow.  I can barely keep up with reading my news feeds.  So, for a couple of days, please entertain yourself with the blogs on the sidebar.  Regular blogging should resume Sunday, when I have a normal connection.

Had I planned ahead, I would have a bunch of posts scheduled.  But, I didn't.  Sorry!

Shoulda posted this earlier

How to make a high-quality 9mm barrel in your kitchen.

Even if the gun-grabbers never win, the ability to thwart their plans is good.  Plus, it's also cool as hell.  I would love to take a gun I built out to the range.  But first, I have to learn how to build one.

What they said

With regard to Red Flag Laws...  I don't trust the gummint any further than I can throw their bloated asses.

From Old NFO:  So much for "due process" with those Red Flag Laws.

From LawDog:  An Open Letter to Representative Crenshaw

There is not a single law that the government will not abuse.  That's been proven time and time again.  Give them an inch, they take a mile.  Give them permission to do anything, you will find them doing whatever the hell they want, and your rights will be tossed out the window.

It's a violation of the 2nd Amendment, the 4th Amendment, and lord knows how many other laws.  And any politician who supports Red Flag Laws are just trying to "do something". 

Not just no, but "Fuck No With Cheese".

Credo en Unum Deum

In almost every Catholic mass, there is the Credo.  For you non-trads out there, it's the "Confession of Faith".  For those of us blessed to go to a Latin Mass, it is the Credo, and this is one of the most beautiful renditions I have ever heard.

Liberal Projection

Don Lemon is one of the first nutjobs on TV to accuse Republicans of being a bunch of sexual assaulters, rapists, etc.  Maybe because that's what he does, so he thinks everyone else does it and he can just accuse anybody of doing what he himself does.

Gounelas' version of the story is the same as Hice's: Hice offered to buy Lemon a drink, and Lemon declined. A few minutes later, Lemon came up to Hice, put his hand down his own shorts and rubbed his fingers on his genitals, and then shoved his fingers under Hice's nose and uttered that now-immortal phrase: "Do you like pu*sy or di*k?"

April Ryan, who is nothing more than a fat stupid cow with a microphone, bleating out DNC talking points, likes to accuse Trump of clamping down on the free press.  Maybe that's because she does it, and so she'll project her anti-media actions on the President.

An odd story has circulated on social media the past couple of days about an incident involving CNN contributor and White House correspondent April Ryan and a member of the press. She gave the nod and her bodyguard tossed the reporter out of an event in New Jersey.

I know I'm not the only one who has said this, but if you are being accused of some action by a Democrat, you can be damn sure that the Donk is doing it themselves and accusing you in order to draw attention away from themselves.

Oh, and if you scroll down that story, you'll see that the Fat Very Stupid Cow April D. Ryan is now blocking anyone on twatter who dares to repost the story, with footage, of Ryan's bodyguard tossing the media from her speech.

Anyone who depends on that Fat Very Stupid Cow April D. Ryan for news deserves to be ignorant.  Because they will be ignorant, given that the Fat Very Stupid Cow April D. Ryan doesn't actually report any factual news.

Here's another example:  Democrat bashes Republican for not believing in public schools, while at the same time sending his kids to a private school.

The hypocrisy inherent in the Democrat Party is staggering.

In a just world...

There would be a hand-print shaped welt forming on Fredo Cuomo's face after being slapped that hard.

Well, look at who's funding Rancid Tlaib and "Bro-Fo" Omar

It's a group that claims Jews use the blood of Christians to make Matzah for Passover.  No, really.

Can you imagine how great this country could be if we had an actual free and objective media, rather than the credentialed DNC puppets currently infesting CNN/MSNBC/ABC/CBS/NBC/Headline News/NYT/WaPost/any media company not named FOX or One America?

The Democrat Media complex couldn't be bothered to actually find out what was going on with Bro-Fo an Rancid, so they just acted as stenographer pools for the DNC, which is their default position.

Loud-mouthed angry lesbian demands that US women's soccer team hire someone else

Equal pay can only happen if you draw an equal number of eyeballs, and that ain't happening.  So Megan dear, why don't you STFU and shuffle off, eh?  (Link goes to Huffington-Puffington Post, so click at your own risk)

The members of the U.S. women’s national soccer team know their worth ― and they’re not backing down from the ongoing equal pay fight against the U.S. Soccer Federation. 
“We won’t accept anything less than equal pay,” star midfielder Megan Rapinoe said Thursday during an interview on “Good Morning America.” “We show up for a game. If we win the game, if we lose the game, if we tie the game, we want to be paid equally, period.”

On top of being an American-hating cunt who kneels for our National Anthem, Megan Rapinoe now wants the US to pay her team more, even though they A) don't bring in as much revenue as the men's team, and B) already receive a higher percentage of revenue than the men's team does. 

Quite frankly, were I inclined to watch women's soccer to begin with, having that loud-mouthed cow screeching about how horrible America is would turn me off of it pretty damn quickly.  I don't know why they're so stringent about playing for a country they despise, and I really don't give a twinkly damn about what they get paid.  I hope they DON'T get paid.  I hope they all get pissed off and walk away and we get new people to play for the National team, so that we can get a team that isn't just a bunch of angry lesbians screaming about how horrible this country is for paying them to play a game.

Now that I have the dielectric grease out from under my fingernails...

Of course, most of it was washed off when I pulled the tank off the bike and tilted it to the left instead of the right, which meant that the fuel return nozzle was suddenly turned into the fuel pour spout.  But hey, a little petrol to get rid of grease seemed to do the trick just right.  And then I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be after I took the throttle control off and had the wife hold it out of the way while I turned the bolts.

Apparently the FPR is a problem on that model year, so I'll be keeping an eye on it.  But the bike runs, and it'll run like a cat on fire if I twist the throttle.  I now know more about motorcycles than I did three weeks ago.  I have to admit, I never had much of a problem with my Shadows.  The most I had to do was replace the tank on one after it sat for too long and developed rust.  The Shadow that I traded in to get the VTX was newer, and didn't have a single problem in 22,000 miles.  Maybe they just got the kinks worked out.  If they still made an 1100cc Shadow, I would have snagged one of them in a heartbeat.  But they're out of production, and more importantly, you damn near never see anyone selling theirs.  I was lucky to find the VTX - they have a cult following, and nobody really gives them up too easily.  I think mine was a case of a guy just not being able to ride anymore, or at least not that big a bike.  I figure I'll ride this beast until the wheels come off or until they stop making replacement parts for it.  Hopefully at that point I'll be so old that I'll transition to a geezer glide type of bike.  Honda Goldwing or something like that.  A touring model that doesn't shake you too hard, but is great on the road, and has a cushion for your hemorrhoids built in to the seat.

Still...  VTX, baby.  Yesterday I had to get out of the way of a herd of stupid people, so I twisted the throttle, did my maneuvers, then looked down at the speedometer to find out I was doing 90, and the bike wanted to go faster.  I will be taking a nice road trip on it next year.  Hells to the yes.  Maybe get my Iron Butt patch.

Anyways....  off to the salt mines.

Rancid Tlaib and Ilhan "Bro-Fo" Omar not allowed to enter Israel.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

It has been confirmed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will block the entrance of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel due to “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS” reports Channel 12 New’s Dana Weiss.

Good.  Israel has no need for these two loud-mouthed, anti-American, anti-Israel shit-for-brains cows to come in and stir up any more hatred.  A nice public rebuking is just the very start of what they should expect from a country that they slander and verbally attack at every opportunity.

UPDATE:  Check out what Rancid Tlaib and "Bro-Fo" Omar wrote on their itinerary!  Gosh, why would Israel ever tell them to step off and take a walk?  It's a mystery!

Scratch a Democrat, find a Dictator

And dictators do what dictators will always do: threaten and destroy the rule of law to get their way.

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future. 
The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.
What's really happening is that the Democrat's near-absolute hold on America's courts is getting loosened, and that means they cannot inflict their illegal, unconstitutional laws on America like they could in the past.  So, of course, they threaten the court to attempt to get the court to do what they want it to do. 

I swear, it's like the Democrats are screaming full throttle towards a brick wall labeled "civil war" and demanding that we all need to go faster.

Sadly, this is just Karma

California introduces anti-Semitic curriculum.

The California Department of Education is facing backlash after permitting a host of anti-Israel activists to build a statewide educational curriculum that demonizes the Jewish state and is said to be fostering hatred of Jewish and Israeli-American students, sources said. 
Already, 83 pro-Israel and anti-discrimination organizations have petitioned the state's education department to reform its Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) to remove multiple instances of what they say is anti-Semitic and anti-Israel bias.

Back when I was forced to live in the San Fernando Valley (Obama's pocketbook), I was surrounded by Jewish communities.  You could see them walking to their temples on Saturday, dressed in their best.  The cigar shops I went to were heavily frequented by Jewish men.

And the vast majority of them, 90% or so, voted Democrat.  They donated to Democrats.  They funded Democrat campaigns, they spouted Democrat slogans.

And now, the Democrats have decided that they are evil Nazis, and since California is essentially run by the Democrats, then Democrat Party is going to do what they do, which is toss one ally overboard in favor of another.

So, California wants to use anti-Semitic schoolbooks?  Gosh, who could have seen that coming?  I mean, besides everybody with a functioning brain who has been observing the Democrat party for the past two decades.

Multiple sources involved in the fight have described to the Washington Free Beacon anti-Semitic courses that they say are fostering an unsafe environment for Jewish and Israeli-American students. Further information obtained by the Free Beacon reveals that several of the educators involved in pushing the new curriculum have a history of anti-Israel activism that has often spilled into anti-Semitic territory.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD for short), an organization completely controlled by the Democrat Party, has a long history of Leftist activism, protecting child-predator teachers, and oh yeah blaming Jews for all the world's problems.  Where do you think all those BDS protesters at UCLA come from?

Jews in California have voted for the Democrats to put a noose around their neck, and now that the Democrats have the muslims to back them up, they're giving the Jews what they voted for.  Good and hard.

That's Karma right there.

I have a proposal

All the Democrats who hate this country and want to live under socialism can go to Hong Kong, and enjoy the fruits of their Marxist labor.

Meanwhile, we bring these guys over here and let them enjoy the freedom they desire.



I'm willing to do a 2-1 or even 50-1 swap.  Hell, I'd trade all of Hollywood for those four guys.

Construction

Normally, the road repairs don't bother me at all.  Sure, it screws up traffic for a bit, but the roads have to get fixed, and summertime is when they can get to them, so I typically just roll with it.

But today, the machines are actually close enough to shake my house.  I was a bit jumpy earlier this morning. 

Don't like that at all.

Epstein's death reveals quite a bit

And none of it good.

Was he murdered in his cell?  Plenty of people believe that.

Was it flat out incompetence by the Feds?  Plenty other people believe that as well.

The one common thread is that nobody believes the official line about what happened, and nobody trusts the Feds to tell them the truth.

Which brings me to this quote I just saw this morning, from a comment at Chicago Boyz:

There are other much more important fall outs here. 
If there is no public justice, people will settle for the private type. Otherwise known as vengeance. 
And when, not if, we get there. No one will talk to the Feds. They’ve shown themselves to be too corrupt and too cheap at the price because they don’t know the real price of their corrupt acts. 
They will be deaf, dumb and blind in the middle of chaos. 
And the elites will suffer as well. As everyone who is not an elite will assume every elite out there are all just Epstein clients. 
Please see “private justice” again for the implications of that. 
This process will happen slowly…then all at once.
Personally, I don't think Epstein committed suicide.  I think he was killed by people who he had dirt on.  I mean c'mon, a camera malfunction on his cell, just at the time he was supposedly hanging himself?

And at the time when his victims were coming forward and naming names?

Nope.  This one's a murder, and given how badly the US Government has destroyed their credibility, I don't know if you'd be able to convince me otherwise.

The opioid crisis

From a rural prosecutor's perspective.

We don’t have crack houses all over the place anymore because we took the people who ran the crack houses and we put them in prison for so long that not only would the crack crisis have passed before they got out of prison, but everyone else was forced to stand up and take note of their sentence. Economics is economics. If you are actually going to attempt to ban a substance that has high demand, you must make the risk/reward calculus obvious and simple. The risk of apprehension multiplied by the likely punishment must exceed in value by orders of magnitude the anticipated reward in light of the alternative opportunities. And in order to make that message heard by all, a multiplication factor must be applied. 
Basically, the punishment for selling drugs needs to seem unfair, draconian, and very scary to those likely to deal drugs. It must be sufficient to cause them to forego easy money and choose a life either of legal hard work or, as is the sad reality of our nation, government-funded dependency. In the United States, we did that once, and we won the crack epidemic with a combination of punishment and economic opportunity. 
In contrast, today federal lawmakers bicker over palace intrigue and leave the barn doors open while Mexico and China flood our streets with dirt-cheap poison. 

This guy makes a lot of good points.  However, there is such a thing as compassion fatigue, and it's certainly applicable in this case.  If these people want to shove poison into their bodies, and resist all attempts to help them get clean, they they need to be allowed to die.

Risk/Reward works for more than just a prison sentence.  Strip any and all government benefits from people who are on drugs.  "OH BUT WHAT IF THEY HAVE KIDS?"  Take the kids away as well.  Let them overdose and then Let.  Them.  Die

There's your risk/reward right there.  Sure, you could get high.  And you could die in the gutter of an OD while people who don't do extremely stupid shit walk around your twitching corpse.

A person can only get clean if they want to get clean.  When I quit smoking cigarettes, nothing worked to help me quit until I wanted to quit.  Until an addict makes the choice to get clean, they will not get clean no matter what you do.  And unless you're willing to institutionalize those people, then they will be getting high whenever and where ever they can do so, including your city parks where they leave their used needles behind for kids to step on.

You get more of what you subsidize.  Stop subsidizing drug addiction.  Stop paying people who just turn around and buy dope with your money.  Remove all benefits from drug addicts.  Take away the safety net for people who destroy society in their quest to get high.

Is that cruel?  No, funding a drug addict who destroys the life of everyone around them is cruel.  Prolonging a child's abuse by a drug addicted parent is cruel.  Forcing Joe Taxpayer to fund the drug addict who's shitting in his driveway and leaving trash and used syringes in his yard is cruel.

The real victims here are the people who are forced to deal with rampant homelessness and addiction, and who have to clean up the mess left behind.  It's the addicts who are the criminals, victimizing everyone else who has to deal with them.

Ammo.com has a write up on gun laws

So if you're curious about just what laws are out there that can affect you, go thee hither and read.

As for "Red Flag" laws, all I can say is that the people who want to shut you up, get you fired, dox your family, assault you, and who threaten to wipe you off the face of the earth are just salivating at the chance to call the cops on you and feed them an absolute lie so that they cops can come take your guns.

Under a Red Flag law, it doesn't matter if the claim is a lie from top to bottom.  The cops come and take your guns.  That makes it so much easier for Leftists to do what they want to do with you. 

As the meme says - The very same people who want to ban you on Facebook are dying for the chance to take your guns with just a phone call.


Blaming video games is just as stupid as blaming guns

"Oh, but video games are so VIOLENT!"

Yeah, you know what's worse?  When Sally dumps her husband because she found someone who made her pink parts quiver, and spends a couple of years bouncing on the cock carousel, while little Jonny grows up without a father, watching mommy act like a whore, and ends up on anti-depressants, being raised by socialist indoctrinators of the government while mommy keeps trying to find a guy who will marry her stretched-out vagina that has been used more than a public bathroom in downtown Los Angeles.

Or maybe mommy and daddy are junkies on welfare, because who in society can judge them, amirite?

Or maybe mommy never bothered to figure out who daddy was, because "I don't need a man!" or some bullshit like that, and little Tommy grew up with a rotating cast of male characters, some of whom took a too-strong interest in the little child's sexual development, if you know what I mean.

Or maybe mommy and daddy just have to own the big house and the Mercedes and BMW and so they both are corporate power-players and little Mikey goes from waking up to being dumped in daycare to going to school and from the time he wakes up and the time he goes to bed, he sees his parents for maybe one or two hours.  The rest of the time he's being raised by society, and gosh doesn't THAT just work out well.

And so they're all on anti-depressants, or they get diagnosed with ADD or ADHD and get doped up to the gills on Ritalin or Adderall or whatever the pill de jour happens to be.  And they're bombarded with messages about "Toxic Masculinity" and how horrible they are for being men. 

It ain't the video games.  Millions upon millions of people play video games.  If video games turned people into killers, we'd know.  Trust me.

Come see the violence inherent in the Leftism

Not one single Democrat running for President will condemn Antifa.

They want to see you beaten and rounded up into boxcars.  You can guess what comes after that.

I think I need to look for a new blogging platform

Google is banning blogs.

YouTube (a Google company) is memory-holing any video that might make the Left look bad:



Google is evil, and blogger is run by Google.

Anyone have any cheap and easy suggestions?  I figure I don't want to wait until Google bans me as well, although I'm such a small fish that it might not happen.

Yep. Pretty much

Kurt Schlichter lays it out fairly simply:

Everything the left says or does is designed to make them more powerful by making you less free. You can never give enough of your money or freedom away to make them stop hating you, so don’t try. 

Donald Trump isn't a racist.  His supporters aren't racists.  His voters aren't racist.  Does that stop the Left from calling all of us racists?

No.

There's nothing you can do or say that will make them hate you any less, and giving up your freedoms just makes it easier for them to load you into the cattle cars on the way to the gas chamber.

Joaquin Castro is a shit-swizzling Marxist

And don't think he wouldn't ship you off to a Gulag in a hot minute if he had the opportunity.

Huh, look at that.  A shit-swizzling Marxist outing donors to the opposing political party, putting their names and address and businesses on notice, in the same timeframe that Klantifa is going to be rolling through Texas on their way to El Paso.

Hell, he probably doesn't need Klantifa, since El Paso is quite a ways away from San Antonio, and I'm certain there's plenty of home-grown Marxist thugs in San Antone, since that's the city that keeps voting for the shit-swizzling Marxist and his brother.

Not only is that shit-swizzling Marxist Joaquin Castro doubling down on his political terrorism, but there are people in the media who are defending it.  No, I'm not joking.  And it only gets worse.

While the press continues to blame Republicans for their “rhetoric,” there’s no question that the vitriol we’ve seen from the left this week dwarfs anything anyone on the mainstream right has ever said or done in a political setting. Period. Calling entire voting blocks white supremacists, doxxing donors, yelling for the death of a Senator, asserting Republicans want mass shootings to occur, threatening people for their political activities, asserting the President wants to exterminate a race – these are not the rantings of sane people looking for de-escalation of rhetoric. They are the drivers of escalation in our rhetoric and it’s reaching dangerous levels.

I need to buy more ammo.

I think I have the grounding problem fixed

I spent Tuesday morning in the garage with the bike torn apart while I pulled out all the various brackets and wires and shovel grommets and then cleaned and polished and scraped and greased and reassembled.

And it works.  Yay!

Now I have to change the fuel pressure regulator.  FPR, for short.  Apparently, the FPR goes bad on the VTX 1800, and that leads to fuel in the oil, which is what we like to call A BAD THING as that reduces the viscosity of the oil and leads to damage.  If it's really bad, your miles per gallon goes to hell, bike runs like crap, and you can smell gasoline in your engine oil.

Well, my bike is getting good mpg, and it's not running rough, but I can smell the gasoline in the oil.  Which means I caught it in time, and I don't have to tear the entire engine apart, I just have to replace the FPR and change the oil.  The FPR was shipped yesterday, should get here tomorrow, and then I can do the work on Saturday.

I swear, if you want to learn to be a mechanic, just buy an old vehicle and start fixing it up.  You'll learn more than you ever wanted to learn.

Connor Betts = Antifa member

The Democrat's shock troops are doing what Democrat shock troops do.

While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies. 
Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement. 
“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.

You've got to read the whole thing.  Read it.

Honestly, the blue is the give-away

It's bad enough that anti-Pope Jorge Bergolio is wearing vestments that feature a symbol of pedophilia.  But having it in blue is a huge screaming tell.

"But Dave, why is blue such a tell?"  I'm so glad you asked!

There are certain colors that can be used for vestments, and they MUST.... that's MUST IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS correspond with the liturgical calendar.

So, there is:

Green (for time after Epiphany and after Pentecost)
Red (Various feasts, Palm Sunday, Pentecost)
Purple/Violet (Advent and Lent plus some other holy days)
White (Christmas, Easter, various other feasts)
Black (Masses for the Dead, with a few exceptions)
Rose (two specific days)
Gold (can replace red, white or green)

Notice any color that's missing?  Yeah.  Blue.  Now, in certain dioceses, such as Los Angeles, the priests are authorized to wear blue on feasts honoring the Virgin Mary.  If anyone wonders why L.A. gets to do this, it's because Los Angeles is not the full name of the city.  It's La Ciudad de la Reina de Los Angeles.  The City of the Queen of The Angeles.  In other terms, the city is consecrated to the Virgin Mary, which is why priests in L.A. can wear blue on specific Marian feast days, and ONLY ON THOSE DAYS.  In fact, blue is such a rare color to use that it's not included in the list of liturgical colors, because for 99.9999999999% of all priests, they'll never wear it. 

Now, in the extremely rare case that a priest may have blue vestments, they will be the on the Alb, Cincture, Stole or Chasuble.  In the photos of the anti-Pope Jorge Bergolio, the blue is on a Cope.  Did I mention a cope in the list of vestments that would be blue?  No, because the cope is used for for specific purposes and not worn as a vestment for mass. 

Therefore, what we see is the anti-Pope wearing a cope that is covered in symbols and colors that practically scream out pedophilia, and there is not a single liturgical reason for the cope to have those symbols or use those colors.

Let me repeat - there is not a single reason for a priest to have a cope with that symbol or in that color.  Not one.  And there is a reason behind every single garment the priest wears during mass.  Therefore, if there is NOT a reason for those symbols or colors in the Catholic mass, then those colors and symbols are coming from some other place.

Like when you're a pedo who uses the Church to obtain pleasure and power and money, and you want to signal to all the other pedos that you're in their corner.

Pray for Pope Benedict, the true pope, that God may care for him and protect him in this time of turmoil.

Single moms make the best mass shooters

Yes, that's a deliberately twisted headline, but it's also the truth:  There is a link between mass shooters and absent fathers.

Gun control activists are quick to blame mass shootings on the proliferation of firearms, but are less likely to point to the proliferation of fatherless households. 
Yet research shows that school shooters tend to come from broken homes, where one or more parent is absent, addicted or abusive.

Blaming guns is easy.  It's an inanimate object.  Kinda like how Rosie O'Donnell's fork made her fat, right?  But actually doing something to reverse the trend of boys being raised by only their mothers might actually be HARD, and force people to actually DO SOMETHING, so that's ignored while people cry about guns in a country that has always had guns, but not always had mass shootings.

There were shooting clubs in high schools all over this country in the 50's and 60's.  Kids brought their shotguns to school with them so that they could go hunting after school, and they didn't shoot the school up.  What changed? 

Well, I'm one of the few people I know who was raised by parents who never got a divorce.  Try that on for size.

Maybe start reversing the culture that says it's OK to pump and dump a girl.  Start reversing the culture that says it's OK to rip a kid away from their father because mommy found a newer, richer guy that made her lady-bits quiver.  Start reversing the culture that says it's OK to raise a kid in a single parent house. 

But that would be hard.  So they blame the gun.

A good rant

As he points out, America has ALWAYS had guns.  Guns used to be a mail-order item.  But we didn't have mass shootings.

I'd also like to point out that the total number of deaths is still less than a monthly count from Gun-Free Chicago.
