Going riding today

 Followed by dinner at the American Legion.  It'll be a nice day, although in typical Utah fashion we'll be bundled up when we leave, and stripped down to summer-weight gloves and jackets at the end of the day.  

My wife found a perfect example of why we can't have a conversation about guns with Leftists.  Because they say shit like this:  

This is like saying that you shouldn't own a banjo, because cats can hold one thousand spoons per tennis racquet.  It's gobbledygook.  Word vomit from people who think they're smart but don't have the first clue about the subject on which they're pushing forward their opinion.  You can't argue against make-believe FEEEEEEEEELINGS presented as rational arguments.

 Not only is everything Biden said a lie, but he exposed his handler's hatred of the Constitution and laid it open for everyone to see.

While Biden insisted that none of his gun control measures impinged on the Second Amendment, he also insisted that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”

“Nothing, nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment. They’re phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake for what we’re talking about,” he argued.

Then came the key statement: “But no amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”

Because see, if the Constitution was like...  the LAW or something, then the entire Democrat Party platform wouldn't be possible, so you just have to do away with that pesky relic!

Biden is laying the groundwork for carving out exceptions to key constitutional rights. It’s not just gun control: Biden supports the Obamacare contraception mandate and would remove religious freedom exemptions for Catholic nuns like the Little Sisters of the Poor. Biden also supports the Equality Act, which explicitly undermines the First Amendment’s guarantee of the free exercise of religion and the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Biden supports H.R. 1, the Democrats’ election boondoggle that, among other things, eviscerates free speech in politics by mandating donor disclosure.

When Biden says “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” he isn’t just talking about the Second Amendment.

The question is not if American can be saved.  The question is where are people going to land once we break apart.

Yep. It's pretty much what we expected from Biden and the Left.

The Left is desperate for another Civil War.  They show it through their actions.

Taking the hound to the vet

 No, not a euphemism.  He's got something wrong with his right rear leg.  Maybe foot.  Don't know.  But he's gimping around, and has been for the past couple of days, so it's time to take him to the doggie doc and see what's what.

Hell, at this point he's an old man.  Lots of grey hair everywhere.  Could just be wear and tear, because he was my running buddy in Lost Angeles, and we did 20-25 miles a week.  Kept me from getting jumped by druggies and dealers more than once.

So, maybe more from me tonight.

UPDATE:  It's some sort of soft tissue damage.  No bone damage, nothing wrong with the joints, so it's anti-inflammatories and no strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks.  Really, it's the best case situation given that he's an old hound.

Went to the ear doc yesterday

 They confirmed that the ringing in my ears is not in fact the bells of angels constantly pealing for me. 

 Also, I've lost quite a bit of hearing in the 4000 hertz range.  That's the hearing range for explosions and other sudden loud noises.  Huh.  Wonder what could have caused that?

The young Air Force guy running the lab handed me my paperwork with an appropriately sad face.  "Well Sir, it looks like your hearing is a bit damaged."  I don't know if it was trained to be sad about that, or if he's found a way to respond to people in a sorrowful manner.  Hell, maybe they teach that crap at audiology school, I don't know.  All I could do is point at the "US Army" on my uniform and say "Well, yeah.  Army".  That actually cracked him up.  He's used to dealing with Zoomies.  Maybe they're more sensitive?  That would explain the long face as he delivered the news.  Gotta be delicate with delicate folks.  Army guys just shrug and go "Yeah, figures".  Either that or we cup our hand to our ears and go "Whaaaa?"

In other news, that demented fucking clown Fauci is still wrong.

Last month, when Texas Governor Greg Abbott axed the state’s mask mandate and other COVID-related restrictions on businesses and people, Dr. Anthony Fauci called it “risky” and “potentially dangerous.”

“When you pull back on all mitigation methods on all public health guidelines, that’s when you get into trouble and history has proven that,” Fauci told Chris Wallace of Fox News. “This isn’t just some kind of a theoretical, a point that I’m trying to make. It’s not theoretical. It actually happens.”

But, there’s been no surge. In fact, cases have continued to decline.

This half-pint dictator has been wrong on everything.  He's been on every side of every issue, and he's managed to be wrong every single time.  Only in the government can you be that incompetent and still have a job.  I would say that I could do a better job than him, but that's a really low bar to clear, given that a retarded monkey on cocaine throwing darts at a wall with choices on post-it notes could pick out a better solution that Dr. Demento there.

They don't write 'em like this anymore

When was the last time you heard something on the radio in 7/4 time?  That's not just talent, that's skill.  I don't really miss the 90's, but I miss the music.  Compared to the crap coming out today?  99% of the so-called artists today aren't worthy to hold Layne Staley's jockstrap.

Apparently, being the worst House Speaker in GOP history wasn't enough

 Granted, with John Boehner, Denny Hastert and Paul Ryan, that might be a three-way tie, but still...

Amid this horrendous maelstrom of misinformation, out comes John Boehner (R-Betrayal) with a full-throated condemnation of his own party. Boehner took to Politico, publishing an excerpt of his forthcoming book. In the article, “Panic Rooms, Birth Certificates and the Birth of GOP Paranoia,” the former House speaker blasts the emergence of the Republican Party’s “Crazytown,” while the Democratic Party’s Crazytown gaslights America.

John Fucking Boehner did whatever the DNC told him to do while he was Speaker, so why should that change now?  Fuck that fucking backstabbing piece of fucking shit, and fuck anyone who associates with him.  Fuck the fucking fuckers straight to hell, where they'll sit in the ninth circle.  For those who read Dante, you know exactly why.

In reference to the post below...

If you'd like to see Jerry Douglas before he looked like me, here's a video from a decade ago (more or less)  Also, unbelievable good music.  Aspiring musicians should look to this group for inspiration.

John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band - "Mississippi Phone Booth" [Offi...

Crap, I feel so old..... 

You can find videos of Jerry Douglas playing with Allison Krauss where he's all brown hair and brown beard and young and enjoying life.  Now he looks like I look.  Well, I don't have a beard, but you get the point.  Still got the chops though.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to contemplate my life.

Yep. Add in the NBA and MLB
