Closer than they know

The Tale of Two Coups, with special emphasis on this paragraph:

It is unclear to me how many of the plotters will end up in the poor house or jail – sadly I suspect most will skate – which means that the distrust of government which fired up the Tea Party and the Trump campaign is not going to dissipate. So far, and so long as some perp walks occur fairly soon, that distrust has not mutated into violence but it could. The wrong person (Comey say) pulling a “don’t you know who I am?” schtick to the wrong crowd could be just the right spark that leads to a broad selection of new lamp post decorations drawn from the senior ranks of the administrative state, congress and the media. I am quite sure that a lot of Trump/Tea Party sorts would not spend a lot of time mourning these lot being shuffled off this mortal coil somewhat prematurely, and that is, in itself, a major cause for alarm. The delporables, the bitter, gun and religion clinging hicks from the sticks, can see how they are being ignored and generally taken for granted (when not being actively insulted) and there’s a limit to how far they can be pushed. I think (fear) we are a lot closer to that limit than most people in Washington DC believe.

I've said this multiple times, and I'll say it again:  The Tea Party was the polite, civil response to the government's abuse of power.  Donald Trump is the impolite, yet still civil response to the government's abuse of power.  If our self-entitled ruling elite continue to refuse to listen, and push this country further into totalitarianism, the next response will be un-civil.

And yes, that point is a lot closer than most people in Washington D.C. could even think of.  If the entire Democrat Party leadership was hung from lamp-posts for their crimes against the Constitution, I would consider it a good start.  I wouldn't shed one tear, and I wouldn't help the authorities figure out who did it, as the "authorities" have proven themselves to be nothing more than DNC goons.

And despite my nom de cyber, I'm actually fairly moderate in how I respond to threats.  Which means there are a whole lot more people writing "PELOSI" and "AOC" on the cases of whatever long-distance rounds they're happy with.

Badlands




I've been to a few national parks in my day.  The Badlands was an experience where every time we rounded a bend in the road, we had to stop and take pictures.

This is what they do in their countres

And this is what they do in ours.

Precinct Minneapolis Crime Watch page said that University of Minnesota (U of M) police were requesting assistance from Minneapolis police (MPD) and Metro Transit police for “a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers” and that some people were injured. A Facebook post a minute later on Minneapolis Scanner page said that the three police departments were responding to “multiple [911] calls” about “10-12 Somali teen males armed with hammers chasing people,” also with “several injuries reported.” Both Facebook pages regularly post summaries of police scanner audio.


Bleeding heart liberal dipshits moved hundreds of thousands of Somalis into our country, claiming that they were "refugees" and needed to live here to be safe.  No one bothered to actually look around and see that it was Somalis butchering other Somalis and anyone else who wasn't from their little tribe.

We don't have magic dirt in this country that transforms people into Americans.  If you bring a bunch of low-IQ, inbred, Islamic barbarian savages into this country, they will do what they have always done because they are a bunch of low-IQ, inbred, Islamic barbarian savages and just moving them to America is NOT GOING TO CHANGE THAT.

So now we have low-IQ, inbred, Islamic barbarian savages going on a rampage in a city that welcomed them and gave them opportunities that they never could have had back in their country.  Do not be surprised if the scorpion you're cuddling stings the ever-living shit out of you.  That is what a scorpion does.  If there is anything that musloids are good at, it is infesting a civilization and destroying it, while being completely incapable of replicating that which they are destroying.

You know you're down South when....

On the description of a Church, there is the phrase "Yankee Army camp" included.



They have a Soldier from the Revolutionary War buried in their cemetery, as well as multiple Civil War vets.

So much for that free press

It'd kind of odd that while I've had access to news channels for the past week, I've heard absolutely zero about this.

Carmody claims he was restrained in handcuffs for nearly six hours as the authorities ransacked his home, seizing “laptops, phones and hard drives — including all the images and documents he had archived from his 29-year career as a reporter and cameraman,” the report adds. 
Law enforcement officials have neither denied nor contradicted the freelancer’s version of events. The San Francisco Police Department has not yet returned Carmody’s equipment. The raid, which was approved by two trial court judges, also included agents from the FBI. 
And all because Carmody refused to give up a confidential source, as is his right. The mayor sees it differently, though, and she is digging in.

If we had a free and independent media in this country, they would probably be raising hell right now.  But since the media in this country is nothing more than the Democrat Party Media Machine, they're not going to say a peep about a journo in deep-blue commie country in their favorite state.

Fuck 'em all.

Finally went to Wall Drug

Plenty of knick-knacks, but the Mrs. needed a Jackalope.  Many moons ago, a Soldier and I convinced another troop from Chicago that Jackalopes existed, and were running rampant over the Mid-West.  She bought that line for about a month, but eventually figured it out.  After she took a drive-about to a couple of Mid-West states, she brought back a little jackalope bobblehead figurine, and the Mrs. kept that in her car for years.  It eventually broke in one move or another, and she's been without a jackalope for a while.  Well, that's been taken care of.

They also have buffalo burgers.  Which are awesome. 

We expected some touristy schlock, and they certainly have that in spades.  But they have lots of cool stuff here.  If we weren't in the middle of a move, we'd have added some clothing and quite a few books to our stuff.

The FBI is a nest of vipers. Backstabbing, anti-American vipers

Don't believe me?  Go read this, and tell me I'm wrong.

I wouldn't trust the FBI any further than I could throw them at this point.  They are a corrupt, unaccountable, anti-American group of thugs for the Left.  They can all go to hell.

Planting season came late

Stopped in to Iowa to visit an old friend.  All the fields are being worked like there's no tomorrow.  My friend does some work for one of his friends who owns several acres, and he says that his friend will be operating the planters 24-7.  The fields would normally be prepped in April, but the ground is so wet that they couldn't get the tractors and machinery onto the land.  He says there's springs popping out of hillsides that never should exist.

Prepare for your food bills to go up, folks.  The farmers are working like mad, but I think that the late start combined with crappy conditions is going to make for a short harvest.

So we were staying with friends

Friends who enjoy good food. And the Mrs. and I just came from Cajun country, essentially.  And there was much begging, and quivering of lower lips, and thus the past three dinners have been:

Shrimp and Grits, Bacon-wrapped Gouda-stuffed chicken, with sides of green beans.

Paneed meat with white gravy, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, and banana pudding.

Hoppin John, greens, and buttermilk pie.

I won't have to eat for the next few days.  Back to driving my ass off.

For the record, I'm for it

"It" being the return of the Pinks and Greens to the Army Uniform.



The Blues have a history to them, but they don't resonate as much as the Pinks and Greens, mainly because there isn't photo history of the Blues as a daily uniform.

For those who don't know, the Blues, with their mis-matched pants and coat, date back to the American-Indian wars, where Soldiers would be issued on uniform.  They would pack up their wool coats and wear the pants for daily use.  When it came time for formal inspection, they would unpack their coats and put them on, but because they wore their pants every day, the pants would be bleached to a lighter color than the coats.  Which led to the Blues, a Navy Blue coat and Royal Blue pants.  Today it's called the Army Service Uniform.  The Greens died a well deserved death some years ago. The Army Greens were best looked upon as a 70's polyester suit in a disgusting shade of green.  I cheered when the Army scraped the Greens in favor of the ASU.  I am cheering again as the Blues once again go to being a Dress Uniform, and the Pinks and Greens come in as the daily wear.

There have been plenty of uniforms I didn't like.  I loath the beret.  I couldn't stand the ACUs.  But this, I can support without reservation.

The Narrative Continues

And men are not women, nor women men, no matter what the politically correct narrative pushers insist.





It's simple science.

I really really hope the Democrats push forward with their Contempt Proceedings

And I really really hope the Trump administration continue to tell them to pound sand.  And in my dream world, AG Barr comes in and arrests every Democrat that voted FOR the contempt charge.  Why would they be arrested?  For attempting to coerce AG Barr into committing a crime.

I'm not a legal scholar, and I don't have the time or inclination to look up the relevant statutes as I'm currently on the road and getting ready to head out.  But I'm pretty sure that using government force to coerce someone into committing a crime is in and of itself a crime.  I mean, if he were being told to release the un-redacted report or he would get audited by the IRS, that's a crime, right?  So a contempt vote designed to try to get him to release the un-redacted report, WHICH IS ILLEGAL, is a crime, right?

It'll never happen, of course.  But the thought of it makes me smile.

A piece of sanity

At least one person is willing to speak out regarding the males who claimed to be female in order to compete with the girls.

Selina’s mother, Stanescu, told The Daily Signal that she has done “everything that I thought would be possible to help this and just open a conversation” about what’s happened in Connecticut and what could happen should Congress pass the Equality Act.  
“The doors have been shut over and over again,” Stanescu said. “People are afraid to speak.”
I can write a four-page essay, but a picture is worth a thousand words, right?



I would also point out that the athlete willing to speak out still hasn't quite learned her lesson:

Selina says all this while making clear she supports athletes “being true to themselves.”
“I have friends in school who are transgender and I know when they are struggling to come out or deciding to come out, I was there supporting them,” she said. “And when they were freshly out, I was caring towards them. I was never rude or disrespectful.” 
But the situation in sports has “nothing to do with their gender identity and how they feel,” Selina said. “It has to do with what is right and what is fair in athletics.” 
Looking forward to her senior year, Selina said she hopes to run track in college. She referred to the long jump event as her “safe haven” where “the results were fair no matter what, because it was girls competing against girls.” 
“But now, unfortunately,” she said with a disappointed look on her face, “one of those athletes has started to compete in long jump. So now none of my events are safe.”
As long as she keeps supporting and encouraging people who are mentally ill and mutilate their bodies as they succumb to their mental illness, she will continue to get the same result.  But she's young.  She still has plenty of time to learn.

Buy more ammo

Because Vanderleun is spot on correct.

Kids and adult-adolescents may think it’s about “The Family of Man” and “the greater good,” but it’s really always and eternally about “Who-Whom?” The leadership of the LeftLibProgs knows their Iron Lung Economics right down to the last pile of ash in the ovens of Auschwitz and the last shattered skull in the muck of The Killing Fields. You’re next.


Checked one off the bucket list

The Mrs. and I visited Mount Vernon the other day, to include George Washington's distillery.  I highly recommend them both.

The two top selling semi-auto rifles of 2018 are...

Pistol Caliber Carbines.

I wonder if other gun makers will take notice.

Link should be fixed now.  Sorry.

Oh sweet bags of money, flying away, away, away.....

So the Mrs, who drives our towing vehicle, was dealing with issues that relate to older cars.  Problem is, as we're still in mid-move, we need a towing vehicle. 

So the older Ragin' mobile is traded in, and the Mrs. is now the proud driver of a new-ish Dodge Ram 1500 Bighorn.

We bought it used, which is the only reason I'm not in the hospital recovering from the raping I just took to my budget.  We got a damn good deal on it, and it's far less than a new truck, but it's still a significant outlay of money.  Good grief.  This thing had better last for two decades.

F**k Twitter with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire

Twitter wants to ban more conservatives.  There's no point in being part of a platform that's nothing but blue-checkmark leftists yelling "ORANGE MAN BAD" over and over.

The only real use of Twitter is to see what the enemy is discussing, and I don't need an account to do that.  So I deleted my account.  I had been using Twitter less and less as time went by, and I have no reason to continue to support them by my content.

Whittle Explains Socialism



Watch it all.

New Tires

Got a set of new tires on the Ragin' Car.  The old ones were the ones that came with it when I bought it new, but they had issues.  They kept springing small leaks.  I would have to air one up at least once a month, and it always changed.  They weren't bad, just kinda problematic, and had 25,000 miles on them.  That's not their wear out range, but I figured I'd gotten the good years out of them anyways.  That won't do on a country-wide tour.  I can't have a flat tire in the middle of the MidWest.  So we went to the preferred tire place and got a new set. 

The Mrs. has Michelin Defender tires on her car, which she got at my insistence.  Good tires are key to good performance, since they are the only things connecting the car to the road.  Once she got the good tires on, she was blown away.  Better performance.  Quiet ride.  Shorter stopping distance.  Good handling on wet roads.

So we got a set of the same for my car.  It's a world of difference.  And now I can continue my trip without worrying about what's going to happen in the middle of Ohio or South Dakota.

Good tires.  Buy them.  They are worth it.

The Catholic Church used to have martial orders

We need to bring them back.

CNN covered the January controversy surrounding Nick Sandmann and his fellow Covington Catholic School students 23 times, yet thus far hasn’t covered footage of children at a Philadelphia Islamic center reading poetry about chopping off heads. 
Video from last month of kids at the Philadelphia Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center showed them reading about chopping off heads and subjecting the enemies of Allah to “eternal torture.”

This is what happens when you allow a Satanic 7th Century death cult into your country.  This is what they do in their countries, and this is what they will do in ours.

I know that Jorge Bergolio is too busy having sex with his boyfriend and enjoying the power of the papal seat to bother with such things as a Satanic death cult that wants to wipe out all Catholics.  But don't think that the laity are just sitting around and doing nothing.  Bergolio will be dead one day, and the Church he's trying to destroy will live on.  It'll just be smaller, and more willing to defend itself.

Every place has its own smell

Vicksburg smelled like mold.  With the surrounding forests, the swamp climate and the fact that things never really got cold, there was a constant state of decay surrounding the place, which meant that the leaf mold never stopped.

Ever.

Virginia smells....  fresh.

If it weren't for the gawd-awful taxes here, I'd consider moving here when I retire.  But I won't give that much of my income to the government, and the business climate here is, well, crappy outside of the major urban areas.  There are lots of things I love about Virginia, but in my opinion it's outweighed by the high taxes and the control of the state by liberal bat-shit crazy NoVa and VA Beach.

Still, I do love to visit my friends here.

Crap I'm doing while I don't have to do anything

Can you believe I've never actually sat down and watched one of these all the way through?

The Natchez Trace

So, the Mrs. and I have now driven the Natchez Trace Parkway from bottom to top.  It's a gorgeous drive.  On day one, we were going to try to make it to Andrew Jackson's Hermitage, but we had to chose between interstate driving and seeing the Hermitage, or taking the Trace.  We chose the trace, and we both feel like we made the right choice.

Had some thunderstorms.  Saw on the news that the Upper Peninsula of Michigan actually got some snow.  In May.  So much for that Glo-bull Warming, eh?

Since I'm setting this post up on a schedule, I'll keep away from the news, because anything I type might be out of date by the time you're reading this.  Of course, I could write about how the Democrats are shitting themselves on a national scale over the Mueller report, and that will be the same no matter what day it is.  Listening to the news on the radio, I could only shake my head as I heard the Democrats ramble on and on about this perceived crime, or that perceived illegality, all while Attorney General Barr put up with them and showing more patience than I could ever imagine.  Especially with that walking pile of shit Nadler. 

Anyways, more driving.  And then, hanging with friends for a bit.  And then more driving.

Crap like this makes me want to hang people from lamp-posts

Especially EPA bureaucrats and 9th Circus judges.

The Obama Justice Department prosecuted U.S. Navy veteran Joe Robertson for digging ponds on his Montana property to fight forest fires, resulting in the then-78-year-old going to federal prison for 18 months starting in 2016 and being fined $130,000, The Daily Signal reported. 
The 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals affirmed the ruling the following year, including the jail time and a requirement that the $130,000 be deducted from Robertson’s Social Security checks.

They punished him for releasing dredge into "navigable waters".  He was digging pits to hold water for fire-fighting trucks because he lives in the woods, far away from any river that you can navigate.

The 9th Circuit, in its decision, said, “In the process of creating these ponds, Robertson discharged dredged and fill material into the surrounding wetlands and an adjacent tributary, which flows to Cataract Creek. Cataract Creek is a tributary of the Boulder River, which in turn is a tributary of the Jefferson River — a traditionally navigable water of the United States.”

At this point, the 9th Circus is stretching so hard to make their case that I'm amazed they don't snap in half.  But this is the San Francisco representative court, so I'm certain they find themselves in all kinds of odd positions. 

If the 9th Circus issues a ruling that allows a crack-head to walk free, and that crack-head buys some crack from his dealer, and his dealer shoots a rival, is the 9th Circus now held liable for the death of the drug-dealer's rival?  Why not?  How many layers of separation are required for those black-robed fucktards, as opposed to us Normal Americans?

You want a shooting war?  Idiotic bullshit like this that ruins Normal Americans is how you get a shooting war.  I guarantee you that nobody in that man's family will ever trust the US Government again.  And sadly, they have no reason to do so.

Turning in the internet router

And our cell phone service sucks out here, so don't expect much of a post from me for some time.

Hittin' the road, y'all!

And YouTube is prepping the battlefield for 2020.  They're not going to allow conservatives to communicate the way they did in 2015 and 2016.

We must nuke the publik skool sistim from orbit

It's the only way to be sure.

Government school officials in California think it is “really important” to teach children about pedophilia and pederasty in the classroom because it is a “sexual orientation.” That is according to a top official for California's Brea Olinda School District, who admitted to parents that it was being done — and that it would continue, despite the outrage. The implications are mind-blowing.  

The stunning admission came after a parent-information meeting last month for the Brea Olinda Unified School District (BOUSD). Stephanie Yates, founder of Informed Parents of California, asked school officials why they were “teaching pedophilia in school to 9th graders.” But instead of a denial that such an atrocity was taking place, a top school official confirmed it was happening and acted like there was nothing wrong with it. 

The goal of the publik skool sistim is not to educate your child.  The goal of the publik skool sistim is to indoctrinate your child into an amoral Leftist.

And they're doing a damn good job of that.  Destroy it, burn the remains, and then salt the earth where it stood as a warning to others.

This is the sound of blubbery horse shit

The problem isn't with society, the problem is that this fat cow cannot put the fork down.

“We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable...is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?" Rashatwar asked. She then connected the science suggesting that obesity is unhealthy to Nazism, saying that "fatphobic" science is “often actually eugenic science....eugenic science is Nazi science.”

There's a photo of this grossly obese woman at the link, so you can just take a gander if you wish.  She's giving a speech titled "Radical Fat Liberation".  Yes, it's as stupid as it sounds.

Look folks, I'm not a skinny man.  When I was riding my bike to town and back every day, I was a skinny kid, but that was decades ago and my life has changed somewhat.  I fight the urge to eat unhealthy food on a daily basis.  I make sure I don't gorge myself.  I watch what I eat and exercise as much as I can, given my job and my physical problems.  So what I'm saying is that I am not some guy blessed with a metabolism that burns up the calories, I have to work at it.  I know it's work.  I know it's not the easiest thing in the world.  But if you don't want to be a disgusting blob of blubber wiggling and jiggling around your life, then PUT THE FUCKING FORK DOWN.

Do you know what you CANNOT do?  You cannot force me to say or think that your grossly obese body is sexy.  Or appealing.  Or healthy.  Because it's not.

Body positivity is a crock of shit.  You're not "healthy at any size", that's a complete lie.  There are sizes that are healthy, and then there are sizes where you have to hire out the local pro football team to carry your casket after you've died an early death due to your bloated body being unable to maintain itself.

Of course, she gave this speech at a university.  Where else can you peddle absolute bullshit and have it accepted without fail?

Pack, pack, pack it up

The truth is refreshing

And I'm glad someone is saying this:

Pete, rather than accepting responsibility for willingly living a homosexual lifestyle, tried to blame his sexual choice on God.  He said to Pence, "Your quarrel is with my Creator."  No, it is not the Creator's fault, because Christ said in Matthew 19:4–5, "Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?"  Obviously, Pete chose not to obey his Creator's command and plan for the human race.  The mayor has that legal right, but it is folly for him to suggest that his lifestyle choice is moral or to suggest that it is wrong for decent people to question his wisdom or to even bring up the issue.

Pete Buttigieg desperately needs Mike Pence to be enemy #1, because if he's not, then Pete Buttigieg is just another failing Democrat mayor of a sinking city.

Growing Up Straight, a book recommended by the National Institute of Mental Health, reveals that "[s]cientific consensus holds that homosexuality is very largely conditioned by the environment and childhood and most particularly by parental influence in the home."  No gay gene, so no excuse. 
Two researchers, Bearrman and Bruckner, in the March 2002 American Journal of Sociology, concluded, "[O]ur results support the hypothesis that less gendered socialization in early childhood and preadolescence shapes subsequent same-sex romantic preferences."  The Yale-Columbia professors are saying DNA does not determine same-sex preferences.  It is life experience that shapes sexual preferences.  No one is born gay.  No one.

There is no gay gene.  Nobody is born gay.  And is it any shock that when homosexuality is encouraged in a society, while traditional families are discouraged, that there will be a rise in homosexuality?  Let me close out with this quote from the article, because like I said, the truth is refreshing:

"I'm a Christian.  I don't agree with homosexuality.  I think it's a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is.  If you're openly living in unrepentant sin ... that's walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ."  

Do I think homosexual acts are a sin?  Yes.  Do I think cheating on your wife is a sin?  Yes.  Both are legal.  There's no judicial punishment for adultery, is there?  And yet, legal and moral are not the same.

Pete Buttigieg is in the national news because he's a gay man running for president, and the Democrat Media Complex is masturbating furiously about the possibility of being able to scream "HOMOPHOBIA!" even louder on the national stage.  But what has he done that's noteworthy?  He's the mayor of a city, right?  He's got a performance record.  What, exactly, has he done?

Not much.  He's just another Democrat, running a failing city.  Bravo.

Don't slow down

If you slow down, you lose.

It's that time again

The movers show up way too early.



I'm getting a little tired of moving so often.  I know it's all part of the Army life, but I think my Army life will be coming to a close rather soon.  Looking at all the times I've moved in the past decade..  2008, 2012, 2016 (a pretty good string of four year tours) then 2017 and 2019 back to back.

Time to retire, and let some young buck step up.  Ah well.  One more station, and then I can hang it up.

Just.... Mississippi

So I'm sitting out on the porch, finishing up my cigar, when I hear a vehicle approaching.  It's loud.  Like, a dozen washing machines falling down a flight of stairs loud.  And it crests the hill about 100 yards away from my house, and the noise gets exponentially louder.

And then it comes into view, or at least as much view as can be seen at night in the rural areas around here.  It's a truck, pulling a trailer.  Or dragging a trailer, as the case may be.  I don't know if there were just flat tires making the rear of the trailer drag, or if some part of the trailer had come unscrewed and was dragging.  But there were sparks flying from the entire rear end of the trailer as the truck dragged it along the pavement.  And again, it was loud, like one continuous car wreck in progress.

Before I could really comprehend what I was seeing, it took the curve and disappeared from view, but the racket went on for a good thirty seconds more as it crested another hill and dipped out of auditory range.

Things happen in Mississippi that the Mrs. and I normally don't talk about to our friends and families, because they don't believe half of what we describe.  You have to live here to really comprehend what it's like. 

Oh, and I've also been told that anyone who lives north of I-10 is a damn Yankee.  I asked if it were possible, since the state I claim as residence was founded after the Civil War AND is on the other side of the country, that I escape Yankee status.  All I got was a one-eyed glare, and a lot of muttering about foolishness and nonsense.  But they did like the bread pudding the Mrs. made, so there's that.

Oh crap

Want to see people die en masse?

A public health official in Laredo, Texas, said 20 Congolese migrants are being monitored for Ebola in shelters in his city and across the Mexican border in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. 
Shortly after his announcement during a Laredo City Council meeting, the World Health Organization (WHO) considered declaring a “global emergency” in response to a massive outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

You want to know how bad an ebola outbreak in American could be?  Go read this guy's take on it.  Ebola is scary shit, and if we allow it into this country because of our wide open borders, we won't have to worry about a civil war.  Huge chunks of cities will die.  Just...  die.  Horribly.

This ain't happy news.

Holy Saturday

We wait...

Diversity + Proximity = War

That's why E Pluribus Unum was so damned important, and it's why the Left is going to burn in hell for all eternity for destroying it.

For history's rare multiracial and multiethnic republics, an "e pluribus unum" cohesion is essential. Each particular tribe must owe greater allegiance to the commonwealth than to those who superficially look or worship alike. 
Yet over the last 20 years we have deprecated "unity" and championed "diversity." Americans are being urged by popular culture, universities, schools and government to emphasize their innate differences rather than their common similarities. 
Sometimes the strained effort turns comical. Some hyphenate or add accents or foreign pronunciations to their names. Others fabricate phony ethnic pedigrees in hopes of gaining an edge in job-seeking or admissions. 
The common theme is to be anything other than just normal Americans for whom race, gender and ethnicity are incidental rather than essential to their character.


Identity politics will be just one of the many knives that stab this country to death.  I don't see any way of turning the clock back on this one; we already have people entrenched in the belief that their skin color or country of origin are more important than being American.  Anyone who puts a nation and a hyphen in front of "American" is proudly proclaiming that they are not American.  And if they're not American, they don't share the same values that Americans share, that have allowed us to live in close proximity with each other for the past 242 years.

Why Illegal Aliens are ready-made Democrats

Scary shit, amigo.

It's not that its people are poorly educated, though that's a major issue, actually.  It's that a good look at that system shows that pretty much the only education they receive at all is Marxist indoctrination.  Combine that with sub-literacy, and the people who are the products of this system are as malleable as clay in the hands of leftist demagogues. 
How very convenient for the leftist political parties there that produce such people.  And how even more convenient for Democrats up north, waiting to welcome them as they flee.


Please go read just what kind of Marxist shitholes the schools in Central America are, and then realize that the Left in America wants the very same thing for this country.

During a recent teachers strike in this Zapotec Indian town in the poor southern state of Oaxaca, parents who brought in replacement instructors discovered that the children hadn't been taught the words to Mexico's national anthem.  Instead, they had been trained to sing a popular leftist song which acts as an unofficial anthem to a local chapter of the teachers union. 
"We don't know the words to the Mexican anthem," said Leticia Diego, a student, apologizing to a visitor one recent morning.  About a dozen seventh-graders then shyly sang the leftist anthem, "The People United Will Never Be Defeated."

Public Education is a scourge on this earth, a disease that infects whole societies and destroys them from within.

Ghosts of Mississippi

For the past week or so, I've been waking up at 0300.  Just destroying my REM sleep.  Don't know why.  Can't figure it out.  But it's playing hell on my workout schedule, when I can't drag myself out of bed in the morning.


Yep

This is why I don't give a shit about your college degree

Also, we are so screwed....




A free Republic requires moral, educated people to sustain it.  We do not have moral or educated people coming from our colleges and universities.

This is deliberate.  The Left, which controls academia, do not want educated, moral people.  They want amoral, easily controlled drones, and that's what they produce.

Deeds, not words

Why do I call the Left in America anti-American?  Because they show it through their actions.

Is there a classier lady anywhere than Shannon Slutman, widow of FDNY firefighter Christopher Slutman — killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistanwhile serving as a US Marine Corps reservist? 
No, there is not. 
Meanwhile, is there a bigger dope than Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, the pandering jerk from Greenwich Village who was hard-pressed to find a few bucks to help send Gold Star kids to college — while lavishing millions on scholarships for the offspring of New York’s legion of illegal, um, ­arrivers? 
Alas, probably.

My parents were big on telling us that in order to find out what people are like, watch what they do when they think nobody is looking.  My mom was fond of saying that the real person comes through when they're driving or playing sports.  In today's age, you have to look at what they say when they think that only their allies are listening.

Or blathering to their friends on twitter.

The Left in America hates America.  They hate our freedom, they hate our individualism, they hate our Western Civilization, they hate our Christian religion.  THEY HATE US.  THEY HATE YOU.

Vote accordingly.  But more importantly, buy ammo.  Buy guns.  Because this country will not live forever, and the rule of law doesn't matter to the Left.  They WILL come for you, sooner or later.  They always do, once they gain power.  And the GOP is so weak and spineless that they won't stand in the way of the Left once the Left gains power once again.

I would be willing to bet that the Notre Dame fire wasn't an accident.

Because it's not the first church fire of the year.  Or the month.  Or even the week.

A dozen Catholic churches have been desecrated across France over the period of one week in an egregious case of anti-Christian vandalism. 
The recent spate of church profanations has puzzled both police and ecclesiastical leaders, who have mostly remained silent as the violations have spread up and down France. 
Last Sunday, marauders set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice — one of Paris’ largest and most important churches — shortly after the twelve-o’clock Mass.

France has imported millions of muslims over the past couple of decades, and surprising nobody with a brain, they've refused to assimilate.  Part of that is because European countries don't assimilate people into their nation very well at all, and part of it is because Islam is a backwards, 7th-century death cult who have spent centuries inbreeding their IQ down to retardation levels.

But we've had islamic sub-humans murdering priests, attacking Jews and vandalizing churches and jewish temples for years now.  We've had churches desecrated all over France.  We have Jews leaving France for fear of their lives.  We've had musloids rioting and burning cars in Paris on an annual basis. 

Do I have any proof that the Notre Dame fire was caused by musloids committing arson?  No, I don't.  But I wouldn't put it past them.  This is the same religion that blew up thousand-year-old carvings of Buddha in the name of their religion.  They've destroyed churches and Christian cemeteries all over the Middle East.  Does anyone think that they wouldn't burn down one of the most iconic cathedrals if they had a chance?

You know they would.  Everybody knows they would.

I personally do not believe that the Notre Dame fire was an accident.  And I certainly am not alone in this.  YMMV.

Notre Dame is burning

It saddens my heart. 

It's also a good metaphor for the Catholic Church in Europe.  Irreplaceable treasures going up in smoke.

Got a day at home today

That's what happens when an oak tree that's four feet across comes down on your building, knocking a hole in the roof, tearing a gash down the side of the building, and knocking out power.

Also - the work computer doesn't like civilian networks very much.  Go figure.

Tornado hit close to home

Luckily, all it took was the roof off of a store. 

We didn't even lose power.  Thank you, linesmen!

Ho-Lee-Crap Thunderstorms

We got a gully-washer kicking off right now.  I wonder if it'll keep the pollen down for a bit.

When I say "gully-washer", I mean the drainage ditch in front of our house, which is about 18 inches by 30 inches, is full, and more is coming in.  That ought to be interesting tomorrow morning, checking to see what roadways have been moved a tad.

The Allergy Season that Never Ends

Apparently, this is a really bad year for allergies in Mississippi.

I can't breathe.



Even the dog is having allergy problems right now.

A little more Mean Mary



Way back when I was a young buck, I helped play the "drums" for a recital.  I might just tell that later.

Got a big boss man showing up today

So I get to lead him around and make sure that he gets taken care of.  Because I don't trust a damn senior person in that building to do it themselves. 

There's no ass-kissing, but I have to make sure he's in-processed, to include the money people and the computer people.  So I'm going to be rather busy today.

Apropos of nothing, if the people of East Lansing are so horrified about Catholics not celebrating teh gays, I can't wait to see what they think of their Muslim neighbors in Dearbornistan.  But it's almost like all the hatred only goes one way.  Huh.  Go figure.

Five Reasons to Build The Wall



I'm now at the point where I think that the wall will never truly get built, because the people in D.C. don't want it built.  At some point, the bloodshed that is occurring will make it to T.V., and then god knows what's going to happen.  As it is, I'm absolutely certain that there is a huge amount of "Shoot, Shovel, Shut Up" going on that never makes the nightly news.  If I had drug traffickers destroying my ranch land?  A night scope and a 30-06 takes care of quite a bit of problematic people.

Candice Owens just whipped Nadler and Lieu in person

Couldn't have happened to a worse couple of pathetic shitstains.





Nadler is a turd.  Lieu is a turd.  They are both a symptom of just how far down the drain America has gone. And of course, they're both Democrats.

And Ted Lieu deserves to be punched in the face on a daily basis for being such an unmitigated asshole.

Hack hack cough

It was a yellow alert day yesterday thanks to all the pollen in the air.  It'll be another yellow day today.  And that means that your humble narrator is hacking up chunks of lung-butter.

It's disgusting.  What's worse is that all this congestion eventually turns into an illness that puts me flat on my ass for a few days.

Grrrrrr.

I'll be the guy swigging Airborne like it's whiskey and I'm an old cowboy from the 1880's.

It's sad that this even needs to be said, but this is the world we live in

Being a Fatty McFatCakes is NOT a service related disability.  Senior officers/NCOs in the USAR and ARNG hardest hit.

Obesity cannot be considered a service-connected disability, according to a new ruling by the Department of Veterans Affairs General Counsel expected to be published in the April 8, 2019, edition of the Federal Register. The new ruling, among several precedent opinions set to be included, reinforces the VA's long-standing opinion that obesity isn't a disease or injury according to the law for wartime or peacetime compensation and can't be considered directly related to military service for compensation purposes. 

The number of people I've seen waddling up to the door of my unit, with their uniform stretched to the breaking point, makes me rather angry.  I actively work to either get the people I am responsible for to be A) in shape, or B) out of the Army if they can't put the fork down.

If you have an injury that prevents you from working out, then you should be getting compensation for that injury.  But if you're a fat-ass, and you can't be bothered to do a minimum of exercise, that's on YOU, not the Army.  I've been unable to run for the past six months thanks to a fractured sesamoid bone in my foot, but I've found other ways to exercise so that I don't get fat.  Getting fat is bad, m'kay?  Especially when the Army will kick you out for being fat, and I rather enjoy being able to see Mr. Happy when I look down.  Which is a total non sequitur, but it's still rather important to the Mrs.

While the VA treats obesity as a disease for which treatment is warranted, the distinction is in the words "service-connected." The VA simply does not see it as a condition that was a result of military service, and therefore for which compensation is payable. 

Oh yes, obesity is treatable.  Stop drinking beer.  Stop eating fried everything with fried sauces on top. 

When I was stationed in Wisconsin, I worked with another Soldier from Georgia who was so fat even his fingers were plump.  He did enjoy his fried chicken.  He retired sometime in 2012, and was dead from a massive heart attack by 2014.  He had probably gained another 50-100 pounds from his rather hefty retirement weight. 

I think he was 51 or so.

Put the fork down.  Eat an apple instead of a donut.  Cut down on the beer, like I did.  And I love beer, folks.  I really, really do like beer, but it makes me fat so out it went.  My diet has had to change multiple times depending on what it was doing to my body, and I figure that it'll change a couple more times once I retire and grow a beard and put up signs around my house saying "Trespassers will be shot; Survivors will be shot again".  But don't ever blame anyone else for you being fat.  If you're fat, it's because YOU made the choices that made you fat.  The VA shouldn't have to pay for that.

You want reparations?

Reparations for what?  I've never owned slaves, and there ain't a black man alive in America today who was forced to pick cotton.

Tell ya what - how's about we make a deal with this whole "reparations" thing.  Any black person who wants reparations can have them.  And they can get them just as soon as they give up their American citizenship, step on a plane, and go to any African country of their choice.  Go back to their motherland, if they're so caught up in their blackness and all that entails.  Hell, I'd be willing to put them on a boat just so they can carry more of their personal belongings, and drop them off on any country in Western Africa.  They get the cash, they get on the boat (a cargo boat, not a cruise ship), they leave and NEVER COME BACK.

Then, and only then, will I consider the possibility of reparations of acts that occurred prior to anyone in my family arriving on these shores.  Until then, they can all kiss my ass.

Stupid vile woman proves her stupidity and vileness (A post on Dr. Charlotte Riley)

So I go for this quote

During the twentieth century, Britain sank from being the world’s foremost power to a marginal colony of Brussels where you can go to jail over a Facebook post. The empire that ruled the seas is now an emasculated political basket case that seemingly cannot import invaders fast enough to satisfy its thirst for virtue signaling.  

And end up reading crap like this:

A few days ago, I was having a bad morning: my train tickets were expensive, my train was delayed, and my coffee was cold. But I cheered myself up by playing a game on my commute. The game is called Patriarchy Chicken, and the rules are simple: do not move out of the way for men.
(.......)
The point of Patriarchy Chicken is not just that you get where you’re going marginally faster (although you do) or that you irritate a number of men (which you also do). The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to occupy space takes precedent over anyone else’s right to be there. They spread their legs on tubes and trains, they bellow across coffee shops and guffaw in pubs, and they never, ever give way. 

Now, if you're reading that and thinking to yourself "My, it seems that this author is a Leftist douche-canoe who lives in order to make everything around her more miserable and more evil", you'd be correct.  She's a academic.  And "intellectual", even.

The fact that this stupid cow goes out of her way to ignore the basic norms for general civility ought to tell you all you need to know about her.  But it also shows that this academic turd blossom it absolutely full of shit as she rages about the men who keep her civilization running.  Men do not go out of their way to annoy people.  That's a good way to get a fist to the face.  The reason so many men get perplexed at this woman is that if it were another man, they would react accordingly.  But men are conditioned to treat women with respect, and when we see a female walking genital wart acting in such a fashion it throws us for a loop.  We can't punch her in the face, AND SHE KNOWS IT.

That's the rub, right there.  This is why this blithering sack of maggot vomit needs to be publicly humiliated:  Because she's protected by her vagina, and she knows it.  If she jabs her elbow into a man's ribs, she wins.  If he reacts in any way other than to mumble an apology and move on, she wins again.  And she knows it.  She rages about the patriarchy while simultaneously being protected by the same patriarchal rules she's raging against.

Dr. Charlotte Riley is the end result of a society that has decided to end it all and just slit its wrists open.  The corpse of formerly "Great" Britain is still twitching, but it's dead, Jim.  She's a human AIDS virus, destroying the body by destroying the immune system so that any small little virus will kill it off.

Huh. A good hard look at "social costs".

A long but interesting and very informative read, right here.

And this brings me back to the question of cost/benefit analyses and the idea of the “social benefit of carbon”. As noted above, people put the “social cost of carbon” (actually carbon dioxide) at “roughly $40 per ton”. 
Now, remember that corresponding to the “social cost of carbon”, the “social benefit of carbon” is: 
… the dollar value of the total benefits from emitting one ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 
As Figure 6 shows, the benefit that we get from emitting that additional tonne of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is an increase in goods and services of $4,380 … which dwarfs the assumed social cost of carbon of $40. When we do an actual cost/benefit analysis, the result is almost all benefit.

I'm a big fan of CO2.  Plants can't exist without it.  If you freeze it and drop it into root beer, you have an awesome holiday drink for kids that makes them all think you're a genius.  But mostly the plant food thing, because my food eats plants, and without plants, my food couldn't be turned into, well, MY FOOD.

Also, asparagus.  I do eat asparagus.  Which also cannot grow without CO2.

And I still want to kick every eco-freak I meet straight in the twig and berries, in the hope that they won't reproduce and spread their stupidity genes.

One of the little joys of living in central Mississippi

Is that I don't know if I'm coming down with some sort of upper respiratory infection, or if it's just my allergies fighting against whatever the hell is blooming now.

I am not a Southern man, no matter how often the Army tries to turn me into one.

Saturday, April 06, 2019

Busy day today

Got lots to do.  Quite a bit of plans coming up for the future that need preparation now.  And of course, the ever-present need for socialization, lest I revert back to banging women on the head with clubs and dragging them back to my cave.  I'm much like a dog in that regard.  If I'm not socialized on a regular basis, I tend to be even less sociable in the future, and since the Mrs. likes to be around people, well....  She doesn't need me snapping and growling at them.  I told her that other people are highly over-rated, but she still likes to be around them, so....

So, off I go.  Enjoy some old-timey music.

And the Catholic Church continues to eat bullet after bullet

Because Jorge Bergolio, the Anti-Pope, continues to stick the barrel down our throat and pull the trigger.

Reports that Pope Francis is planning to appoint the very liberal Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta to serve as the next archbishop of Washington, D.C., are giving many conservative Catholics heartburn. 
Gregory, who would become the seventh archbishop of Washington, is expected to succeed Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who resigned in disgrace last October in the wake of last year’s Pennsylvania grand jury report on sexual abuse in the clergy. In the grand jury's report, Wuerl was accused of helping to cover up the crimes of predatory priests while serving as the bishop of Pittsburgh.

Wilton Gregory is a liberal politician in shepherd's clothing.  He's the fruit of the poison tree.  The fruit that he produces will likewise be poisonous. 

Gregory also worked closely with McCarrick when he was president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops from 2001–2004. During the presidential election year of 2004, McCarrick and Gregory withheld a powerful memorandum that was sent to the U.S. bishops by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The memo was intended to be read at an upcoming bishops' conference in the United States.

That would be known sodomite predator McCarrick. 

In the memo -- which was leaked to the Italian magazine EsspressOnline a week after the conference -- the future Pope Benedict XVI clearly and precisely instructed the bishops to deny Eucharistic Communion to politicians who publicly support and campaign for abortion. Some of the passages appeared to have been drafted specifically with then-Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry in mind. Throughout his long senatorial career, Kerry had always vocally supported and voted in favor of abortion rights.

But McCarrick and Gregory decided to toss that memo in the circular file, because they care more about liberal politics than the souls of church members.  They also care a lot more about having gay sex than about saving souls, but that's par for the course these days with the crowd of bishops who came into seminary in the 70's.

The Catholic Church will continue to disintegrate until these heretics and sodomites are dead and out of power.  That could take decades, because once Gregory is Cardinal of Washington D.C., he gets to appoint bishops all over America.  And again, his fruit will be poisonous. 

St. Thomas Aquinas, pray for us.

Miguel Estrada's Revenge

I really do like this guy.  And Chuck Schumer is a walking piece of dog shit dressed in a cheap suit.




And that's raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacis!



You can't tell generations of white men that they are everything that's wrong in the world, and expect that they won't group up to defend themselves.  To the left, White Men are evilracisthomophobichaternazis, and they've been preaching that sermon for just about my entire adult life.

Hell, the Left has come up with their own hierarchy of who they love the most based on skin color or race or religion or sexuality.  It's called INTERSECTIONALITY.  Muslims rate higher than blacks.  Black muslims rate higher than white muslims.  There's some confusion about whether gays rate higher than muslims, but they'll figure that out once they can determine how many votes each particular side can bring to the table.

But no matter what, white men are at the bottom of their scale. 

You think that doesn't affect how people act?  How people vote?  How people choose to live?

White ethno-nationalist groups exist because we're told that every other nation in the world can choose who gets to live there.  Apparently, the message of "except you white nations" has fallen on deaf ears. Or it that message has just been rejected out of hand.

It's not just that white racism has been growing.  It's that white racism has been growing as a result of whites being increasingly marginalized, and told that we don't deserve to exist.  I grew up in a military household.  I'm still reflexively anti-racist.  But how many of my generation can say that they grew up the way I did?  Very, very few.  The Left has made identity politics their life-blood.  They shouldn't be surprised when the Right decides to play their game.

Say what you will about the most rabid of Trump fans...

They're not worshipping the guy.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke officially launched his candidacy for the Democratic nomination by declaring to Vanity Fair he is "just born to be in it." And his supporters seem to have picked up on the "chosen one" undertones already, with a sign at a Saturday night rally in Austin glorying, "BETO IS OUR CHRIST."

How in the hell can you debate what amounts to these people's RELIGION?

They did the same thing to Obama.  They worshipped the ground he walked on.  Every mumbling stutter that dribbled from his lips like the limp dicks he used to suck for cocaine was treated as if it were the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Maybe there are people out there calling Trump their "Christ".  I haven't seen them.  Trump isn't a religious figure to the people who voted for him.  I've said this before:  Trump is one gigantic middle finger, from the Normal Americans to the Deep State swamp dwellers.  He's not a God, he's a weapon.

Expect a whole shit ton of stupidity in the 2020 race.  Good Lord, will there be stupidity from the Left.  We can see it now.  It's going to get worse.

Need more proof?

Amid her zeal to save the world with the Green New Deal, Rep. ­Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ­ignored residents in her own Bronx back yard. 
“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district

"I thought AOC would be our savior"  Imagine just how dumb, how stupid, how utterly ignorant and out of touch you have to be, to think that a know-nothing socialist is going to be your savior.  It's slack-jawed retards voting in googly-eyed retards, and the entire country is worse off as a result.

The arrogance of these people....

"Why are Christians so afraid of Subjective Moral Reasoning?"

That's not the arrogance.  That's a question that deserves a good answer, and it gets one at the link.  No, the arrogance in that snotty little brat's statement was when he asked if we were afraid that people would just start raping and pillaging if they didn't have a book to tell them what to do.  He says "I'm not afraid of that, because it's not going to happen."

Say what?  Just how historically illiterate do you have to be to say that?  And the arrogance to say "That's not going to happen" when not only can it happen, it has happened, all over the world, and in our country.

In any case, go watch the video to hear the response to that question.  The person who gives the response is far nicer than I am.

Why I don't give two shits about your college "education"

This utterly clueless bimbo has a degree from Boston University.  A rather well-regarded institution, although with the raging stupidity flowing out of Chaqita Guevera's mouth, that regard has taken a well-deserved hit.




I bet the guy in the background nodding in agreement has a Master's Degree from some Ivy-League place.  And they're both too stupid to add two plus two and come up with four.
