Thank PETA

Remember going to the circus as a child?

The bright lights, graceful performers in elegant costumes, the clowns and the animals?

Those high flying acts, the jugglers and the booming voice of the ringmaster telling you about the acts?

The tigers and lions, and bears? The elephants?

Yeah, that is gonna be gone. No more. No more wide eyed youngsters watching in rapt fascination, mouths agape at the spectacle.

Since PETA chased the big animals out of the circus, fewer people go. add in the other regulations, and the loss in attendance without the animal shows, and you have the end of the circus.

Ringling Bothers and Barnum and Bailey circus shall be no more as of 7 PM tonight. 

You can watch the live stream of the last show HERE.

Thus ends the Greatest Show on Earth, destroyed by tiny, small, weasely people.

Yep

THis is so true.

I'd post more, but will be busy fundraising for  the NRA classes at my range.

Maybe more later.

Indeed

Read. 

Like Mandarins...

Can't see anyone sayin' it better. 

One thing I've noticed:

I don't know if Comey really has a memo telling us what he thought he heard or not.

If he does, I don't know what it really says, as opposed to what the Press tells us it says.

But the one thing that I haven't seen nor heard is Ex FBI Director COMEY telling me or anyone else that the President asked him to break the law.

Not a peep.

Why is he silent? 

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Question:

If Comey was asked to stop an investigation, effectively to Obstruct Justice.....Wasn't he required to report this?

I mean, he was asked to break the law, according to reports. By the President. Which, according the the DNC  MSM was illegal enough to get Trump impeached.

But Comey chose not to report it. Which would them seem to me that he either didn't think it was important enough to do anything about, or he was willing to conceal the fact that the President had effectively asked him to conspire to break the law.....Obstructing justice by failing to report the illegal actions he now claims happened.

Isn't an officer of the law (and this includes FBI agents) required to report any such actions? Isn't failure to report such actions a violation of their oath and in fact, illegal? I am told this is true by folks who work for the FBI.


Socialism is good for the figure:

The average Venezuelan citizen lost 19 pounds last year.
Lack of food will do that to ya....

Socialism has destroyed a once vibrant, wealthy country.

But Socialsim seems to turn everything it touches to shit.

I'm glad they appointed

a Special Prosecutor regarding the "Russians" and the supposed interference with the elections last November.

I would like to see a demand for a report in not more than 90 days....60 would be better, really.  If they can't find any evidence by then, it isn't there.

Really, what with all the shit that has been bandied about, there should be proof by now.

But let's put an end to this. either prosecute someone or let it go.

Enough of this.

So why do we have Primary elections then?

(not that I think that we SHOULD have primary elections....at least not primary party elections officiated over and paid for by taxpayers...The General election, yes, but the primaries are the responsibility of the Parties)

 " lawyers for the Democratic Party tell Judge Zloch the lawsuit should be thrown out because the Party has the freedom to determine its nominees by “internal rule”, not voter interests,..."


You really should read the whole thing.

"Pot, meet kettle"




"Remove the mote from thine own eye, firstly"

The New Republic is claiming that "The Russians" are sowing thousands of "Fake News" stories to the American Public. (and perhaps they are).

But if they are gonna complain about it, shouldn't the Liberals (and especially the DNC Cheerleaders MSM clean up their own act first? 

So because they don't like how he said it......

Anyone else's travel ban....say, Barry Obama Soetoro Obama, would be OK, because of his thoughts on Islam. (And because they wanted to hobble The Donald....)

"Context matters".

No, it doesn't. Either something is legal, or it isn't. The "Context" or the reason matters not a whit.

Watch the VIDEO for more.....

The judges who issued the stays on Trump's travel ban should be impeached. Disbarred, in fact. Never allowed to judge nor practice law again in their lifetime. 

BLEG:

SO I need to stock the new truck, I got nearly everything I need, but I DO need to find a decent, compact REAL First Aid kit. Something that I can use to treat major stuff, not Band-Aids, and asprins.  I'm talking first aid at an accident or the like....

If I could find one, I'd get something like the kit I got when I took AD's Gunshot Wound class.

Anyone got any suggestions? I can indeed make my own, but it'll be expensive and I would have to buy a lot of stuff that I then would never use (can't buy chest seals by the "each", ferinstance).....Plus there is the hassle of finding a decent small pack to put it all in.


So does anyone have any suggestions for an already put together kit?

And this is what happens

When you have too many of any one cultural group of immigrants on one place.....especially Muslims, but, really, of any group. When the percentage of any one immigrant group becomes too high, you end up with things that go against the "American" way. Which isn't always bad, but undermines the culture and authority of the country.

"Congress shall make no law"

This is, (if you'll pardon the expression) a sticky one.....

What defines a "church"?

Be specific. On the one hand, "Freedom of Religion". Who are you to tell me how and who with I can worship....or when?

On the other hand, "Zoning".....and the outrage of a few citizens.......Who happen to live near the office park where this "Church" conducts it's "services". Who are they to say where such services can be held? These "church services" are behind closed doors, not in public.

I dunno. I doubt that the folks in the neighborhood will win this one.

It is "Slippery Slope".....if you can decide that a community can define how or what a "church" is or how they "worship" then you have a mandated religion. If this were a Mosque of a Synagogue being opposed, the City would lose immediately. But instead, a bunch of bible thumping churchgoers believe they have the right to define other peoples behavior when it has no impact on their own lives......and that they can define what a "Church" and "worship" is.

I foresee this getting ugly. And I see a potential Supreme Court case here. Not my thing, but I really don't want the State to get to decide how anyone's church must conduct itself....

Of course, you can always call the BATF for a ruling....


Innit amazing?

What CAN happen when the city and State are motivated to make something happen rather than impede it?  When they help rather than impede? When inspectors show up on time and plans are approved in a timely fashion rather than languish on some bureaucrat's desk for days or weeks....(and yes there were financial incentives to the construction company too). When there isn't a call for a study for an endangered species or a survey required for drainage or for greenspace impacts or displacing homeless or any of the other bullshit that normally happens....

I-85 bridge reopens 42 days after fire destroys span. 

Here is how it happened:




And someone ate a bat again

Thus, Ebola season starts. 

Luckily, the Feds aren't bringing in folk from the Congo in job lots like they are Syrians, or it would be here. 

Friday, May 12, 2017

Y'know....

The Media is getting irksome.

I tune in for news, not propaganda.

'Tis interesting that every Democrat wanted Comey fired....until he got fired. I sincerely doubt Comey is the lead investigator in the investigation into the "Russians", so how is this a big deal? It's not like he was gonna excuse any behavior like he did Hillary's "mishandling" of Top Secret memos.

Then it must be a coverup. Odd how the media conveniently forgets that, innit?

And no one said anything when Billy Clinton fired Willie Sessions the day before he had Vince Foster killed Vince foster committed "Suicide"...

Because "Democrat", so "ignore improprieties".

Comey should have been fired Day One. If Comey had had any honor, he would have resigned.

And it isn't like there aren't several other investigations concurrent with the FBI investigation.

Why do I have to hear a made up scandal biased story to the exclusion of Real news?


ETA: And now they can't seem to stop using "Watergate" in the same sentence, as if to link the Break-In and subsequent debacle to Trump.

"Rules for Radicals" seems to be the rule of the Media today.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Enough, already!

Scott Pelley just can't stop using the word "Russian" every time he refers to Trump.

At this point, his credibility is beyond repair.

He has noting to point at to LINK Trump to anything Russian, But he can't (or won't) stop using "Russian" in the same sentence. Perhaps this is an attempt to link Trump and "Russians"  in his viewers minds?

Look: I am all for finding out if, as is implied, Trump was under the pay of, or was somehow aided by, the "Russians". Perhaps he really is Putin's lapdog. But this continued innuendo, without accusation and without proof is becoming pedantic, and frankly, irritating....and childish.

For many years the MSM has had little credibility with me,  But they don't have to renew my reasons for doubt daily.... I get the fact that they HATE Trump and they will do anything to delegitimize him as President. But at some point, they have to just stop.

The Left is going NUTS about this alleged Russian thing. The Left (and the Hillary campaign) made it up and the Loretta Lynch's "Justice" department believed them and then the Press ran with it....

Can't say I am sorry to see him go

He was, at the first a political animal.

Then an administrator (and not that good of one, apparently).

Then a leader of FBI agents.

Comey Fired

What with his mealy mouthed dealing with the Hillary Server and all, and then his half assed try to assuage his conscience just before the election, he isn't suited to be the leader of an organization like the FBI. 

"What do you mean, you sold it???"

So I recently took delivery of the Dodge Ram 2500 that I had ordered.

Now, having a new truck, I had no need of my old truck, a 14 year old Dodge diesel 2500.

As the old truck had a bit of rust over the rear wheel wells, the dealer really wasn't interested in it, and, rather than make a crap offer, suggested that I sell it myself. They even did a valuation on it to give me an idea of a fair selling price.

So, I put a sign on the truck and placed it at the end of the driveway. Had several folks stop and look at it in the first week, but no one came ad threw cash at me, so I put it on craigslist on Friday afternoon.

Now, Thursday, a guy had stopped by with his wife (who disapproved) and looked at it, had taken it for a drive, and had even talked a bit about price. Said he'd call me in the morning. Except that I never heard from him, which was why I placed the truck on Craiglist.

I got the usual lowball offers via email, at least 2 scammers, and one guy came and looked at it...all before noon. This guy appeared serious, looked closely at the truck, drove it, crawled underneath it, etc. Asked all the right questions. Told me he'd call me Sunday. Which he did. He then told me he'd take it, and we arranged a time for him to come and pick it up, which happened on Sunday afternoon. Cash on the barrelhead....

Monday, the guy who looked at it THURSDAY BEFORE called and said he had decided to buy my truck.

"Sorry, dude, I sold it on Sunday"

"What?"

"Sold it on Sunday. Guy from Craigslist looked at it and bought it".

"But I went to the Bank and got money and all".

"You never called me".

"I meant to, but I got busy"

"You never told me you wanted it....You were supposed to call on Friday morning. I told you I was gonna put it on Craigslist on Friday....Today is Monday. I sold it Sunday."

"Yeah, but I got busy"...."and I had to go out of town on Saturday".

"Dude, the Truck. Is. Sold."

"But...."

"You. Never .Called......I. Sold. The. Truck......If you wanted it, you should have called and made an arrangement.... not waited 4 days.

"But....I wanted it!"

"Sorry bro, you snooze, you lose. If you wanted it, you should have made it plain. Put down a deposit....."

"But....."

"Gotta go, bro, good luck next time".

And I hung up, shaking my head.

Just FYI:

If you have a Gander Mountain Gift Card or a Credit Card with points....

Us 'em by 5/18/17. They are Going Out of Bisness. Or not?. But until they decide, I'd use up my Gift Cards....

Thassom Nice Shootin' there,

Yeah! The range is back to 100%

And everything works, even the target turners.

See, the guy (or guys) that built it in 1980 or so ran the signal cable(s) for the control for the (homebuilt!) target turners and timers in the same conduit as the power, clean into the breaker box, then out again through a hole drilled in the side of the breaker box (not to code).

Replacement of the (now doubled breakers) box of even older vintage necessitated cutting this wire in order to remove the breaker box.......With zero slack in the control cables.

Which led to a lot of work. Splicing and more splicing. With wires that don't match to colors because I have NO idea where they got the unmarked multiconductor cable with the weird colors. (Pastels? Really?) Blue with gray tracer and brown with red and yellow with white and all sorts of other interesting combinations.

Then, a bad splice led to lots of fun, as there is absolutely ZERO documentation on this thing. And I haven't done relay logic (and an odd mix of 1980's TTL) in like 30 years, since my first job outa tech school. Which made troubleshooting interesting and fun. Especially since the logic appears to be in several widely dispersed relay enclosures.....

It would have been nice to have a diagram, even a wiring diagram, much less a layout of the relays.

But it works, and I have made notes that should have been made 37 years or so ago (and maybe they were, but some dickhead tossed em?) and have placed the documentation inside the control box for the next poor soul who has to work on this.

If you do stuff like that, PLEASE remember the guy in the future who has to work on your stuff. Document.....Place documentation in the main control panel or nearby. Maybe notes as to where everything is?

But hey, it gave my brain a real workout, and the range is up and working the way it was when I started.

So France decided to put their neck in the noose.

They elected Macron.

I said that the US had taken a LARGE step towards the Abyss when we elected Barry the O the first time, and I can say that the French have taken an even greater step towards Oblivion in their choice of leader.

Thing is, this infection will spread, the Rot will get to other countries. Germany is already circling the rim, and now the rest of Europe will follow (with the POSSIBLE exception of the UK).

Bet on it. 5 years or so from now, France as you know it will no longer exist.

TrumpCare vs ObamaCare

Here, from the BBC, is a comparison.

It is still Subsidized, it is still Socialized Medicine.

AND IT ISN'T REPEAL.

Thing is, now Trump owns it.  So when it craters in 3 years or so (and it will, the fail has already begun), it isn't BarryCare anymore, it is DonnieCare......

And this is the end of the chance the GOP had to actually, you know, succeed in regaining its power. (Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.....)

Delta apologizes

Which is good......They paid the dude's costs and offered some compensation.

The question I have, however, is did they fire the flight attendant in the video? You know, the one that lied about "federal law" and "federal regulations" regarding seating of children and/or "Federal Law" when it came to "following orders of a flight crew" (which is only applicable IN Flight (defined as terminal to terminal, and since the plane hadn't left the terminal....))...Did they fire her? If not, then they approve of her antics, and are only apologizing to the passenger and covering his costs and such because there is video evidence.

Unless they have fired her, then I gotta believe that Delta thinks this is good behavior for flight attendants.

Until folks start getting fired for this shit, it won't stop.



I'd not have been as calm and cool and collected. 

Oh, and don't forget:

Today is the Holiday for Mexicans in the US, but nowhere else in the world, not even Mexico, except for the State of Puebla...where it is a tepid holiday, at best...maybe some parades and such.

For the rest of Mexico, it is nothing special. In the US, it  is, somehow, a special day for Mexican Americans and their illegal friends. And an excuse to drink for the rest of us because cheap Mexican beer and tequila is on sale and there are drink specials at bars and such.


But mostly it is an American Mexican holiday, not a Mexican holiday. Sorta like St. Patrick's day only with darker skin and black hair.


Now that'll fix what ails ya.

154 proof Gin. 

Not for the timid. A bit harsh on yer innards....But I bet that it will make great Rheumatism medicine and such.

They want folks to return those bottles, but I bet that none are returned. 

You mis-understand:

This bill wasn't a "Repeal and Replace".

It was a "replace ObamaCare with a "less bad" version of ObamaCare".

Those 20 Representatives who voted against this abomination of a bill are the only ones who stood true to the GOP promise to REPEAL.

All of you who use the words Repeal and Replace are liars. There is no Repeal. There is still Socialized Medicine. There is still the concept that the State owes some people health care insurance based solely on their "reported" income. That the rest of the people should pay their own way. That failing to participate in the shared risk pool can be rewarded when people discover that they need someone to pay for their medical expenses (preexisting conditions) on the backs of the rest of us.

The whole concept of Socialized medicine still exists in this plan. What it has done is to more firmly cement the concept that Health Care insurance is a right as a citizen of the US.

The GOP has greatly failed to meet even my very low opinion and expectations of them.



Influencing presidential elections

Proving once again that Leftists stick together. Liberals. What can you say?

(and, of course, showing the double standards when it comes to influencing elections)

Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in February 2012, will be awarded a bachelor’s degree in aviation from Florida Memorial University (FMU) during commencement ceremonies on May 13.

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Yep

This.

Exactly this.

I want my campaign promises kept.

TheDonald should fire his advisors. Especially Reince Preibus, Since he took him on, Trump's message and strength had gone downhill. Seems his ability to get things done has waned.

Trump is acting like the GOP that we elected him to lead to victories, not to fail and knuckle under.

100 days, and where is the Repeal? Where is the wall (yeah, the GOP negotiated both away) where is anything in the first 100 days?

He shoulda stood firm and let the Dems cause a shutdown.




Wednesday, May 3, 2017

At some point

In the replacement of the 40 year old breaker box, one must just say "FuckIt" and just get the power back on.

This is doubly true when the person who installed the original box had no idea what he was doing in the first place. (and he has passed, so I can't kick him in the ass)

It is now safe (I am amazed that thing didn't burn the whole range down) if not to Code.

It will be to code in a day or two. And the power is back on in almost every place in the range. 

If you like science fiction....

Then you should read J Curtis's recent effort.

Rimworld...Into the Green

I was one of his Beta readers. It is a good epic.

Worth buying for your reading pleasure.


Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Yo, Donnie:

Where is my cuts in government spending? You know, the ones you promised?

Yes, the Democrats have threatened to hold fast and shut down the Government.....How is this a bad thing? Let 'em stall and put the Federal Government into stasis for a while. I DON'T CARE. Blame them. Be loud about it. don't let them set the agenda and the Budget.

I want my "Less Government" I want my spending cuts. I want my Border Wall and my Repeal of ObamaCare.

If Reince Preibus is telling you that you should fold, remember, he was once the opposition, and he was the one pushing Jeb Bush. He was the one that let the Democrats walk all over the Republicans for the 8 years of Obama's reign.

You really need to stand fast here. Say "NO!" and demand the cuts. Demand the start of the border wall. Defund Planned Parenthood and the NEA and all those other useless agencies. Insist on a 20% cut in every 3 letter agency (and 25% in all the rest).

Stand fast. We supported you in the election and we will support you now.

GIVE US WHAT YOU PROMISED.

Yes, I know it is hard. Yes, people will say Bad Things about you. (Hint: They already are saying Bad Things about you) . Let the DNC choose to shut the government down. But stand firm.

We elected you because you weren't More of the Same. You weren't the DNC Light GOP that we had as other choices. Don't prove us wrong here. You have a majority in the House, and in the Senate. Use that Majority. Make the RNC types stand for what they claim they stand for. Kick some butt if you have to.

Stand up, be strong, stand firm, and fight for what we want....for what you promised......Fire Reince Preibus and anyone else who says you need to be conciliatory. Fight for what you promised those of us who got you where you are.

'Cause if you keep folding your cards when the Democrats push back,  then there is gonna be a Democrat majority government running this country 4 years from now, and that ain't gonna be good for any of us or the country.

Get busy and LEAD the milquetoast Republicans away from the idea that they must fold every time when the DNC folks start playing Full Contact. Kick some ass yourself and get them in line and LEAD. It is why we elected you.

ETA: Puerto Rico? Let the island sink....or, let 'em have to sell the island to pay their debts. They aren't even a state, why should we bail them out after all those years of mismanaged finances?
Fuck 'em.

ETA: I aint the onliest one that feels this way.

Well, the good news

Is that the scniffles (Of epic proportion) have ceased, for the most part.

Sadly, it is now in my lungs. I can't walk up a flight of stairs without having to stop.

In fact, the effort put into writing this post my be a bit too much.

More later as I feel less ill.

Read the folks on the left side. They are smarter and more erudite anyway....

This judge

should be impeached.

and barred from legal work for life.

He isn't impartial.

He's a DNC tool.


Anyone notice?

I'm not wantin' to start suggesting that a few (unwilling) people died for a cause or anything....


And yet, one must break a few eggs to make an omelette and all that.....

But have you noticed that ever since the push for Gun Control failed a few years back, there hasn't been any atrocities committed on the National Media by white guys with firearms?

No schools shot up with those terrible mind infecting Black Rifles, nor high capacity magazine "things that go up", nor 30 round pistol "clips" in those terrible GLOCKSs or anything?

Maybe it has been happening, and we just haven't been informed by the media?

Or did all those kids in Connecticut and all those folks in the movie theater in Colorado die and get shot and permanently injured by those whacked out kids on psychotropic drugs for no real good reason. Does Gabby Gifford have a permanent brain injury for nothing....?

Were all those folks just (wasted) sacrifices?

'Cause in case you haven't noticed, there haven't been any big splashy ones since the Left gave up trying to take yer guns away.

(But I bet had Hillary been elected there would have been at least two incidents by now....Just to set the stage ....)

Flip Flip Flip

And Trump Caves Again.

So those ObamaCare subsidies?

The ones that Trump was gonna rescind?

That campaign promise?

Yeah, so much Hot Air.

First the Wall.....

Now this:

Trump Caves On Obamacare Subsidies To Avoid Government Shutdown.

I'm growing ever more unhappy with Trump. He SHOULD go to a Shutdown if that is what it takes to get his budget.....Wall, and Obamacare and all the other promises he made.


We elected him on those promises, after all. He doesn't appear to have the spine to even really try.

Apparently he's gonna approve a bailout of Puerto Rico as well, in order to prevent a standoff with Democrats and a budget shutdown.  I'd like to see that standoff...there is a point wherin one has to take a stand...

He is, I think, getting bad advice from Reince Priebus.....The leader of the previous GOP, who couldn't stop anything the Light Bringer did...that party of accommodation.

And it is showing in Trumps lack of victories.

Stand up and fight, Mr. Trump! 

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Fuk the UN

They claim that repealing ObamaCare is against "International Law"?

Why don't they take some of their bloated salaries and the profits they make off of the decisions they do at the UN and subsidize those folks they want to protect?

(Of course, they could do a lot with that money in other parts of the world also....)

And we need to make one thing clear to the UN.

They don't get a say in the laws or operation of the Government of the US. .

If they don't like that, and cannot understand that, and can't keep their fingers off of our pie, they are welcome to take their headquarters somewhere else and they can do without our contributions to the UN. (They'd lose better than 20% of their income).

Were I Trump, I'd tell em to take a flying fuck at a rolling donut.

I have found that those surplus blue helmets can be penetrated by a .308 NATO round at a bit over 450 yards. (YMMV).
Just sayin'.




HaHaHa


Self justified derangement

See, it isn't the fact that so many have Trump Derangement Syndrome, it is the fact that Trump is just so terrible..

Or something.

It isn't the fact that so many can't be objective in their assessment of Trump's actions (Nor could they be objective in their assessment of the actions of The Light Bringer Barry Soetoro (See also, a Nobel Prize for....doing nothing)....It is on fact the terrible things Trump might someday do when he gets a chance.....

Or something like that.

It isn't the fact that, while conservatives feared Barry Soetoro's wish to "Fundamentally Change America", we all sat there and waited for him to make the attempt and then fought him every step of the way, rather than gnashing our teeth and crying and having to take our anxiety meds and have Drum Circles and Two Minute Hates Support Groups and such.....We dealt with things as they came, in a logical and realistic manner rather than stress out over our imagined fears that we projected onto a powerful leader not of our philosophy.

It's not because their revered Obama didn't have gaffes and miscues and mistakes in his first few months in office (and later).....

No, it is, in this article, just because Trump is who he is. 
And that, my friends, is all the justification that these folks need to have Trump Derangement Syndrome.....in spades
Well,  my new truck FINALLY got to the Dealership.

And it be nice.

Leather, diesel, RamBox, lots and lots of stuff to be happy about.

Last one lived with me for 14 years....and it still has got a few years of life left.

So what's afoot?

Seems the entire Senate is to be briefed about something to do with North Korea.

How is yer prep status?

Just sayin'. 

Well, fuck

Trump caved on the wall.

Now we are told "Maybe Next Year".  Trump "Takes the Wall off the table in Budget negotiations".

I think he ought to sell sponsorships in one foot sections to citizens for $100 each. I bet he could pay for the wall that way.


So now we can add the Wall to the failures and broken promises, along with Repeal. 2 big promises that got him elected are being tossed by the wayside.

Bad boyz, Bad boyz...

Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when we come for MLK?


So they are taking down another set of Confederate memorials today....

Because when we decide MLK was not who you feel he was, when we decide he becomes irrelevant, when we choose to claim he was racist, or this deeds were hate speech, as this originated at...because some asshole wearing a Black Power patch on his jacket kills a white man, or wearing a Malcom X "X" shoots and kills a bunch of white folks...

You gonna dare to stop us from removing a statue or a bust of MLK?

'Cause so far, people have been decent and let you get away with trashing their memorials to their heritage. You claim "racist" but those folks were all a hundred or more years ago.

What you mean is that you want to show how much power you have, as black people.

Symbols mean things to people. Just as you claim that that civil war memorial is "racist" and you revere the Statue of Martin Luther King......so does that "Confederate" statue stand for the heritage of the families that built the south.

No, it wasn't on the backs of the blacks despite what your current version of history might represent....

Learn the truth, deal with the fact that those memorials are there and shut up and find a black person who will do something important enough to be memorialized and then pay for a statue or memorial for that person.....

'Cause otherwise, someone is gonna start finding ways to denigrate MLK and we will begin finding excuse (like every black on white crime) to rename his streets and parks and then eventually pull down his statues (most of which were paid for by whites as taxpayers).

If y'all keep this up, yo won't like how it ends, 

It would seem

That if it weren't for fake hate crimes, there would be none at all:

A Muslim professor at Indiana State University lied about receiving threatening emails and being attacked on campus, police say.

It is odd that seemingly none of the hate crimes that are reported are real, isn't it? I cannot find a single "Hate Crime" that was actually, you know, legitimate.

Odd, that. 

Question for liberals:

And democrats.....(but I repeat myself)




Build that wall!!!

Where are they now?

These are quotes from 1970 Earth Day "scientists".

Where are they now? What have they got to say for themselves? I've lived here on this Earth the entire time...since before there was an Earth Day. I haven't seen these terrible results happen.....

"The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age." — Kenneth Watt

"Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years." — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

"By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate… that there won't be any more crude oil. You'll drive up to the pump and say, ‘Fill 'er up, buddy,' and he'll say, ‘I am very sorry, there isn't any.'" — Ecologist Kenneth Watt

"It is already too late to avoid mass starvation," — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day

"In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution… by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." — Life magazine

These folks made a fair amount of money during their career.... Is anyone asking for a refund?

I'd love to see Scientific American, or Nature, or National Geographic interview these folks if they are still alive....see what they have to say about their dire predictions.

'Cause we have more oil, less pollution, no "Glowbal Cooling" (Now we have passed to "Glowbal Warmering", and since that didn't pan out either, it is now "Climate Change")... More food (where the governments haven't failed their citizens and caused shortages) and better overall living conditions for nearly everyone in the world since 1970.


If you live in Providence

Or if you know anyone who does live there

Or you own property in Providence.......(Rhode Island, that is)....

Then I'd advise you to sell, or tell your friends and/or family to sell their property as soon as possible.

Providence has chosen to become a lawless city.

Look at what happened to crime in Chicago when Mayor Rahm and the feds got through hobbling the police force.

The place will be a shithole in less than 2 years. Maybe less than a year...Bet on it.

Yes, it was heading that way already, but when one is in a car heading for a cliff, it is best to keep your foot off of the gas pedal.

So the French

Begin their elections today (Don't fully understand their method, but it apparently takes some time).

And reports are that the "Far Right" is expected to do well...

Duh.

The current bunch welcomed a bunch of Muslims with no vetting at all into the country.

And like in any group of people, there were good ones and bad ones.

You never hear about the good ones, of course. They just quietly go about their lives. Most refugees are decent...

But the bad ones take a terrible toll. And yes, there are a bunch of bad ones in the "Refugees" that are making their way throughout western Europe.....welcomed by (among others) the French government. And the French are noticing that their crime rate is climbing, and it is nearly all Muslims doing it.

And people are surprised that LePen and others are gonna do well? 

The GOP just doesn't get it....

We don't want a modified Obamacare, nor Obamacare Lite, nor a "somewhat better" Obamacare, nor the current plan that they are "working on".

I want the REPEAL that was promised. Promised during the campaign.

FULL FUCKING REPEAL. Absolute full repeal.

Nothing less will do.

What a great idea!

If you are the guy in control.....

"A gun for every militiaman!" 


Except that the "Militiamen" are those who support Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro. 

Of course, regular citizens can't own guns, there have been confications. 

So only the military, the "Militia" (not what you and I would consider militia, but supporters of Maduro) and "private Security Companies" can purchase or own firearms. 

Maduro hopes to keep control over the country from what he labels "imperialist aggression."

Kinda like what the British had in mind, lo that many years ago....

The events

242 years ago show WHY we need a second amendment.

Men, free citizens with firearms and other weapons EQUAL to those of the "authorities", were able to fight back and to make sure that their voices were heard and that they were able to determine their destiny.

Things are the same today..... If that were the choice chosen.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed citizen is, of course, a serf.

That is being demonstrated today in Venezuela. 

Not much changed

Via Old NFO I bring you this:

So really, not much has changed over the years, has it???


'Twas also on this day in 1993

That the FBI proved that they were no longer the premiere law enforcement agency, but merely a puppet of the Clinton administration.

They attacked the compound (or what was left of it) with teargas at approximately 6 AM.
This led to a significant fire about 11:30, which killed 80 adults and 22 children.

To be fair, the FBI was handed a really rotten job, cleaning up after the mess that the ATF had made earlier in the year.
But the FBI, in an attempt to make a statement, in an operation cobbled together by Street agents with no knowledge of how to assault such a compound, really screwed the pooch, leading to the fire and subsequent deaths.

Remember them. The died at the hands of your benevolent government for the simple fact of wanting to live away from others, in the manner they wished, and worship as they wish. And the ATF, in an attempt to gain funding, caused such a debacle that the Government couldn't back down until the victims were dead.

Remember also that not ONE of the agents....Not ONE, refused their orders, even knowing that the service they worked for was in the wrong.

And remember that we, as a nation, stood by and watched it happen. 

Patriot's day

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -- Mark Twain


At what point do you say "NO!"?

In all Revolutions, really in all conflicts, there is a spark, a beginning. Thus is the story of the American Revolution. The tinder was there, the unhappiness with the Rule of the King had led to pressures and the ground was dry and ready for  a conflagration to spark.....

The Colonists chose to say "NO!" 242 years ago today.

They chose to stand and fight the legally appointed soldiers of the King of England, carrying out legal orders.

They chose to refuse to be disarmed.

Today, 242 years ago, warned by Paul Revere and William Dawes that "the British are coming!", they chose to stand and fight. To say "NO!"....To do battle with seasoned soldiers in order to keep their way of life and to have their freedom from a King who gave them no representation and who ruled from thousands of miles away.

They chose to keep their guns, and to keep their ammo, in order that they would have a say in what their future would be, rather than be a disarmed serf to be ordered at the whim of the King's men.

'Twas on Lexington Green that early in the morning Captain Parker is said to have ordered his men: "Stand your ground; don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.".

Whatever the legend, we do know that several colonist men were shot, and 8 men killed in the exchange of gunfire and the subsequent rush with bayonets.

The bloodshed was to be repaid later that afternoon.

The British marched to Concord, searched the town for arms and powder and shot, finding none, but did find cannon secreted in several places. These cannon were disabled.

The British were foolish enough to fire a shot, beginning the battle of Concord.

The British, after the first skirmish, assembled and took their time before marching back to Lexington on their way to Boston.

The Militia took advantage of the terrain and their familiarity with it, and began sniping and ambushing the column of British Regulars:

"Chasing the red-coats down the lane / Then crossing the fields to emerge again / Under the trees at the turn of the road, / And only pausing to fire and load."

In Lexington, the British were met with reinforcements, nearly doubling their number.
They rested their men, and began the long march back to Boston.

The Militia, whose numbers grew throughout the day, would stop, shoot, mount their horses, dash ahead, and repeat their depredations of the British. The closer to Boston they got, the more the British suffered at the hands of the growing numbers of Militia.  Menotomy and Cambridge were particularly bloody for the British.

The Revolutionary war had begun in earnest.

Remember those men. They, with their blood, and sweat, and their bravery made the country you have today possible.

Intelligence on the enemy's actions

Tonight is the 242nd anniversary of Paul Revere's famous ride to warn the colonists that the "British are Coming!"

Wadsworth chronicled it later:

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
He said to his friend, "If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
Of the North Church tower as a signal light,--
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country folk to be up and to arm."

(click the link to see the rest of the poem)

There were, actually TWO men giving the warning (and later, a third), although William Dawes got screwed and wasn't mentioned in Wadsworth's poem.  Both took to horse and rode to Lexington via different routes to warn the colonists along the way as well as the residents of Lexington that the British Regulars, under orders of General Gage were to march  on Concord that evening and confiscate the powder and shot cached there as well as any weapons they could find. (without weapons, the colonists could not effectively fight back!)

Revere risked arrest by crossing the river (in a rowboat) at a time when it was against the rules to do so. He did so anyway risking arrest and imprisonment and waited for the signal from the North Church. One lantern if the British were to travel via land two Lanterns if they were going to travel by sea....

Across the river, Revere (and Dawes) saw two lanterns, and took to horse to warn the colonists. They warned everyone along the way, and Dawes met him in Lexington where they warned Adams and Hancock.. They continued in their travels (accompanied by Samuel Prescott) in an attempt to alert the folks at Concord, but ran into a British Patrol. Prescott got away, Dawes and Revere were detained. Prescott continued to Concord to warn the colonists there.

All in all, the warning carried by Dawes and Revere (and then Prescott) may well have made the difference between there being a successful American Revolution and the leaders of the Revolution being arrested and the colonists weapons and powder and shot with which to fight being confiscated.

Paul Revere, William Dawes (and Sam Prescott) were heroes who realistically saved the Revolution.

Revere got credited by Wadsworth. The others got an honorable mention in the history books. Their   warning led to a victory at Lexington and then at the Colonist were prepared for the British.

Then, as now, timely intelligence on the enemy is vital for planning.

Remember those men, and the others you will read about tomorrow. Without them, we might not have the republic we have today.

Tax day

Anyone, no matter who you are, that tells me that I don't pay my "Fair Share" is gonna get punched in the face.

A violent Easter

So, on Chicago's South Side, there were 40 (FORTY) people shot on Easter weekend. Forty people.

'Twasn't good Lutherans that did it, nor those rambunctious Amish Yoots. Probably not European ancestry folks either.

The press has studiously avoided telling us the race or giving descriptions of either the victims or the perpetrators, which should tell you something.

Until we can discuss the problem truthfully, we can't fix the problem.

Yep, I know, I'm a racist.
Truth hurts sometimes though.




Interesting:

Seems that since Trump was elected, there is a rise in citizenship applications.

Some of the spin is that because green card holders now want to be able to vote...So they want to be citizens.

There is also a large group that lived here for years illegally, but never bothered to gain citizenship or any legal status like a green card....

Now, of course, that has changed.

Interesting that once the DNC and their ignoring of immigration laws (and outright violating them in some cases) people wanting to live and work here in the US are bothering to do the right thing.

Funny, that. 

Indeed:

Not so easy when the other side plays by your rules, izzit? 

I have always figured that if you think you need to hide your face, then you feel that your actions are contemptible and something to be ashamed of.

Notice, at Berkely, who wore masks to hide their faces?

And, this is Berkely....As the author says, try this in Texas, or Iowa, or  Kansas or Indiana or pretty much anywhere in the Midwest.

I've always found that a protest sign is most effective if it is stapled to a Louisville Slugger or an axe handle...(YMMV, check local laws, etc.). Especially when gripped tightly in both hands.  ("Ain't nothing like a nice piece of hickory" and all that)

Someone, soon, is gonna get seriously hurt or killed. But hey, they set the rules. Live or die by 'em.

Didja notice in the YouTube, the Trump folks all had First Aid supplies and appeared to know how to use 'em? Planned on taking damage, it appears. I can respect that.

And they ain't hiding their faces, either.

I Laughed and laughed

@calebWilde 11/16 2013:As a mortician, I always tie the shoelaces together of the dead. 'Cause if there is ever a Zombie Apocalypse, It will be HILARIOUS."

Via a friend who saw it on a facebook page.


2 weeks ago.....

The dealership called to tell me that the truck that I had ordered would be arriving in a week or 10 days...2 weeks at the outside......

Today (Saturday), they told me that it should be here in....2 weeks, maybe a week, ten days...two weeks at the outside.

I am beginning to see a pattern here.... 

Saturday, April 15, 2017

Maybe I will go....

Nah, the Secret Service will likely make me take off my gun(s) and knives and other pocket implements of destruction and mayhem. I hate that.

I dunno. I mean, "Victim Disarmament Zone". I tend to avoid those. I have known 3 Secret Service Agents in my life. One I respect greatly (talking about you, Lee). The other two were Polish and Irish Drunks, with the IQ of a bar piano in a whorehouse.....and that might be insulting the piano.
(In case you didn't get it, I don't trust the SS very much.....Certainly not with MY personal security) ...plus there is the To and From the event where I would be disarmed....in Atlanta. 

WALL

Now that is what a border wall should be.
Of course, then one needs a minefield to make things even less encouraging for those who would try to cross.

And the company the company that has proposed it is being threatened by the SJW's....

I think they ought to let people sponsor a section.




(I especially l ike his offer to those who would oppose the wall....He will come and remove the fence around their house....for free....Since after all they oppose walls and all...

Lack of posting

Dental issues are taking up most of my meager intellect. Therefore the cogitation needed for blogging is lacking.

Sorry 'bout that.

One wonders how the police officers

Were able to leave the plane unharmed.

Officers beat man unconscious and drag him off plane in bloody mess. 

One would think, in a post 9-11 world, that the attacking officers would be beaten by passengers. One wonders why this did not occur.

I see several things:

1. The officer doing the beating should be sued...no "professional immunity".

2. The officers that were with him, who stood by and did nothing, should be fired for failing to stop a crime in progress....specifically battery and/or assault.

3. Once I am issued a boarding pass and seated. That is my seat. You can deny me a boarding pass and therefore a seat, and rebook me on another flight...but once I am seated, the contract (ticket) is in force. (yeah I know, Obeying the "legal orders of a flight crew"...but that is valid only once the airplane has left the terminal, so not valid here) United owes this guy BIG compensation for their actions. If not forthcoming voluntarily, then through the court system.


But, again, why did the passengers allow some guy with a badge to beat a man unconscious for refusing to vacate a seat he had paid for and been assigned? Why was the man with a badge not stopped...with force, if necessary? There were plenty of passengers who could have, at least, blocked the aisles and called for State police or other law enforcement.

Allowing such behavior, cop or not, is wrong.

Seems to me

That TheDonald would be better served if he found another person to replace Reince Priebus.

Dude is not giving Trump good advice and he is subtly twisting the Donald towards the (failed) GOP philosophy.

A nice warm evening last night

So 9 people were shot on the south and near west sides of Chicago.

Yes, there is an ethnic correlation here.

No one may want to admit it, but there is. Same same the "victims".  'Twasn't Amish folks that do this in the evening. Nor others that look like them. Nor were the victims Amish. Odd, that.
As the population increases in the West sides, so do the shootings.

Yeah, I'm a racist for noticing the correlation. 

Saturday, April 8, 2017

Well, that doesn't look good...

Man shoot self at NRA training AT NRA RANGE.

As an NRA instructor, I haveta ask just how lax were they? I mean, there are rules for the range in an NRA class......


Rumor has it

That Chuck Schumer was threatened with more "Workout bands" if he got in the way of the Gorsuch Confirmation.

Seems that there were several groups threatening to send him "Workout Bands" if he didn't just shut up.

I hear a lot of rumors, so this may or may not be true. But I notice that his eyes aren't blackened and he has no bruises, so....

Friday, April 7, 2017

For those interested:

The Never-Seize won.

I believe it can get under anything, and that you can spread 0.01 ounces over a square mile.

The Loctite tried valiantly, but lost.

I'm gonna have to use a couple of cans of BrakeClean to get all the mess off of my tools.


Ayup

I find it hard to feel sorry for him

He didn't ever try to become a citizen because it was too much trouble (And likely because he never thought he needed to because of our laxness of previous presidents).

So for 20 years he has been illegal.

Raised a family here in the US. Married a woman (A US citizen) who voted for Trump (like that matters).

Owned a business here in Indiana.

Got deported.

Family is upset. CNN even interviewed him...in Mexico.

No one is happy.....Except the rest of us legal US citizens.

Undocumented husband of Indiana Trump supporter deported to Mexico


Question:

Was firing Tomahawk missiles indiscriminately at the airport in Syria really the best way to remove the threat of further attacks of Sarin gas on the population? How about those folks who live downwind of the airport? Were they safe? I'm asking 'cause I don't know.

If the gas was even there...

As a former business owner,

I approve of this court decision.

The issue with Yelp and other sorts of review sites is that there is no way to verify any of the information, nor (until now) was there a method of determining who the commentor was....Nor verifying the truth of the comment.


IIRC, the Democrats SJWs liked to trash businesses whose policy they disapproved of in comments.

Huh.

Whoda thought?

Barry Manilow is gay? Who knew?
Who even suspected?
Besides everybody, I mean.

More importantly, who really gives a shit one way or another?

Yes, this is indeed my shocked face.

In further news: Water is wet. 

I think I will just let 'em fight it out

Well, Shit.

So about an ounce and half of Never-Seize got loose in my truck's toolbox.

At some point, there was a partial tube of Loctite Red that broke open as well.

So an ounce and a half of Never-Seize is fighting it out with about a third of an ounce of LocTite.

The carnage should be epic.

I just closed the lid and figured I'd let 'em finish fighting and clean up the mess sometime later.

We shall see who wins.

A "compromise"

Nope. screw that. FULL REPEAL.

The issue is that the concept that the State is responsible for someone's health care....that  as a citizen, they are "owed" some sort of free health insurance is, at best, faulty.

Until we get past that, there is no "compromise" ...No Deal.

Full Repeal. Then we can talk. It is what was promised, and what we want.

Anything that keeps State mandated, State controlled, State paid paid healthcare is unacceptable.

Trump Administration Floats Compromise on Health Care

I want what you promised me....FULL REPEAL. 

The most dangerous place to be

Watching the Chicago Morning News stations:

Seems that in the South Side of Chicago, the most dangerous place to be is where everybody gets killed....or shot at by SumDood.

The Corner.

And the most dangerous thing to be doin' on that Corner is "Minin' my own Bidness".

'Cause a lot of folks are shot just "Stannin' onna Corner minin' my own Bidness" when "SumDood came and shot at us"

Odd, that.

Credit goes to Ambulance Driver for introducing me to the evil deeds of SumDood. You should read his book

And now you know.....

I remember it. No other antiseptic burned/hurt as much as Mercurochrome. I don't know if it was any more or less effective, but it sure felt that way.

What ever happened to Mercurochrome?

Typical FDA, really.

Sadly, not an April Fool joke

Democrats want to keep ICE from arresting people in "Sensitive" locations.

Church, schools, DMV, etc.

“Members of our community deserve to feel safe and to be safe when they are accessing justice, when they are seeking education or healthcare or when they are practicing their faith,” she said."

No, if they want that, then they shouldn't come here illegally. But that is just me, you know, a law abiding citizen. Son and grandson of immigrants. I'm odd about these things. 

Give 'em a fair and speedy trial

Then, if found guilty, publish their names and likenesses. Chain 'em to a spot and publish where that spot will be. Allow commuters to drive by.....

You won't have to feed the perpetrators nor even give 'em water.

They won't last long enough.

3 men arrested in conjunction with fiery Atlanta highway blaze. Arson suspected. 

To be fair, if they believed what they were told, fire can't melt steel or damage concrete, or so we are told by the 9-11 conspiracy folks.

'Member this?

I do.

Odd that we didn't hear much about this 5 years ago, the Russians cooperating to help change the perceptions of  Barry Obama...(and the President ASKING them to change policies until "After the Election").

But then again, there is that double standard in reporting and in behavior expected of Democrats vs Republicans.




ETA: And then then is THIS to consider....

Put down the coffee first

Then watch this:



Ain't it the truth? 

"tis what you all voted for:

Large Burly Man in ladies restroom at Disney is disturbing.

WTF did y'all think was gonna happen?

We separate women from men, not for the men's protection or comfort....Y'all felt sorry for some chick or dude with mental problems "Gender identity issues" and couldn't resist being PC.

Ya got what ya paid for, ladies. And if you didn't vote FOR this, you chose to stay silent and not smack your activist sisters down, and this is what your silence bought you.

There is really nothing new..The next leftist riot

we need to deploy several of these and pen the little bastards in so we can arrest 'em.

Or, we can, of course, go "Old School" and use this method of riot control.



Either way, we gotta do something to discourage the rioters. 

Somethin' ta think about

HERE.

California went from drought to too much water in one single winter season.

I just can't work up any sympathy:

I tried real hard, but I just can't seem to find any sympathy at all.....

Mr. President Trump:

Instead of blaming the Freedom Caucus for the failure of your "replacement bill" (RyanCare) that couldn't muster enough votes...

Instead of blaming the Democrats for the failure of that stinking turd of a bill....

You might think about a couple of points:

We don't want ObamaCare, ObamaCare lite, RyanCare, RommenyCare. etc
We don't want socialized medicine, period.

You have a great advantage here. You have the sort of advantage that the Democrats had in 2010 when they chose to RUSH a bill through the legislature...leaving us with the pile of shit that we call ObamaCare. You are squandering that by offering a bill that is, essentially, the same thing. We didn't elect you as President and our Senators and Congressemen to give us Democrat Lite, Nor Socialized Medicine 2.0 (the light version), nor any of the shit we have been forced to eat for the past 8 years. You enjoy a great deal of support from the People and the Republican legislators.....But you couldn't muster enough support to get this stinking pig of a bill to even come up for a vote.....Blame only yourself and the authors of this crappy bit of legislation.

Repeal. Put it forth and you will win. Not a lesser/bad and evil version of today's law. Repeal. Yes, some folks will be unhappy. Some might even lose their insurance. Yes, you will need to give the insurance companies time to redo their plans. Build that time into the bill.  Go back to the insurance legislation and laws we had in 2008. Move from there if you wish.

But get rid of the stinking turd that is Socialized Medicine.

Democrats are smart

At least the leadership appears to be.

Someone asked yesterday at the gunshow where the Democrats were regarding Obamacare and Reform?.

'Twas pointed out that Napoleon once said "Never interrupt yer enemy when he is engaged is doing something really, really, stupid". Which answered the question pretty clearly.

Sheep

Overheard just before I abandoned a cart full of food and walked out of the store:

"I wish they'd bring back the Self Checkout lines.....They never have enough cashiers and there is always a long wait"

It's folks like this that keep the DNC alive.


"Yer poisoning us

and our kids!.

You MUST fix this....We want you to do something about our free housing being contaminated with lead......Our children are at risk! There is no safe amount of exposure to lead!

What?

You want to MOVE us?

NONONONONONONO!"
East Chicago section 8  families to protest forced move

So they want, exactly, what?

Christ-on-a-pogo-stick....

Some folks, if you gave 'em the keys and title to a new Caddy, would bitch about the color.




Friday, March 24, 2017

Looks like we STILL have BarryCare

'Cause the friggin Republicans can't do what they promised and REPEAL ObamaCare.

Instead they have given up (for now) on trying to shove more crap RyanCare onto us. C'mon folks.... REPEAL. Just fucking REPEAL...give us what we want, not a shit sandwich with a different kind of mustard.


And you think you are having a bad day....

The folks in Ukraine would think your day is one that they would trade for....

So.... the more things come to light.....

the more it looks like Comey perjured himself about that domestic spying on Now-President Trump.

We knew he was sleazy. We knew he was in the tank for Hillary. We knew the DNC gave him some of his marching orders.

So now....when does he go to jail for Lying to Congress? For disseminating classified information (oh, if you area  democrat, that charge never applies).....

Seriously. When does he go to jail? 

Don't mess with the bull....

You'll get the horn.
(warning, the video at at the link isn't pretty)
Jesus, that had to hurt.
That could ruin your whole day

That pig with the makeup?

Yeah, now they gave her some heels.

She's still a pig though. FULL REPEAL folks.
It is what was promised.
Now deliver on that promise. Nothing else will do.




It is terrible

That 4 people are dead and 28+ are injured in London.

The thing is, the attacker was apparently "known to police" and "had been previously investigated for terrorist ties".

"Raids were conducted around London and other cities in England" means that the police KNEW who was a threat. Knew that there were people who were a danger (otherwise how else would they know who/where to raid. Which means they knew who were the rattlesnakes living in the midst of the citizenry.....and allowed those dangers to fester until 4 were killed and other injured.

Why allow these folks to live in the country when they know they are dangerous?

(As an aside, 50 cycle per second like they use in Europe hurts worse than the 60 hz we use here in North America....I know this for a fact)

That pig I mentioned earlier?

yeah, now he's rolled in some shit.

Immigration provision cut from Obamacare rollback

So what we have offered to us is Obamacare Lite without fixing any of the issues that make it so objectionable.


Lipstick and eye shadow

The GOP is making changes to their proposal for the RyanCare replacement for ObamaCare.

Lipstick on a pig (and some mascara)

REPEAL the Damned Thing.

You can't fix it, it sucks, and no matter how pretty a dress you put on it, it still won't get any dances at the ball. 

Discrimination against Muslims?

I mean, now folks flying from 10 (Predominantly Muslim) airports are now not permitted to (basically) carry onboard anything larger than a smartphone...

Isn't this discrimination? Where are the activist Judges? Why aren't they claiming that this is Unconstitutional (it isn't, but they don't know from Constitutional anyway) and discriminatory and causes great harm to someone and all the other arguments they used against the Travel Ban earlier? This is is aimed at predominantly Muslim points of origin and all...

Indeed:

"The biggest problem with the AHCA is it leaves in place the concept that it is the responsibility of the federal government to provide health insurance for Americans who don’t have employer-provided coverage."

And that, right there, is why I oppose it.

THIS caliber.


According to sources, the military is testing 'em too.

I'm kinda skeptical about the claim of 1200 FT range though.

So the Democrats, in the Sunday Talk shows, have conceded that Obamacare needed some Tweaking....Just not the Tweaks that RyanCare is tweaking.....

My question to them, however, is just where have you been for the past 7.5 or so years?

Why didn't you tweak it to make it better during any of those those years? Especially the past 4 years?


Public funding

of Private Enterprises:


I dislike the Federal funding of private enterprises via block grants to states.

I dislike the method of funding Meals on Wheels....which is a really good program.

It gets about 35% of it's funding via Federal money.

I dislike the same method of funding for Planned Parenthood.....for the same reasons:

These are PRIVATE organizations. The Federal money they get has, effectively, no controls on how it is spent.....

Does Meals on Wheels do good work? Yes.
Does Planned Parenthood? Depends on your view.

Either way, and for the same reasons, I  am glad to see that Trump is trying to cut out this practice.

More is needed. But it is a start.






Like one of Pavlov's dogs

So I am in line at Menards to purchase some (Ozone killing) spay paint and primer.

2 behind me is a guy in a "Bernie 2016" hat with a "Bernie" button still on his jacket.

I couldn't resist.

As my turn to pay came up, I looked back at the "Bernie" guy 2 behind me.

Caught his eye and gave him a Thumbs Up.

"Y'know, Bernie was Robbed" I said, casually.

Dude directly behind me rolled his eyes and shook his head.

Guy with the "Bernie" accoutrement started in telling everyone who could hear him on how the system was rigged and the DNC was foul with people who perverted the election process and was still winding up about Trump after I had paid and was on my way to the door.

Damn, these folks are easy.

I wonder who he voted for?

ETA: I found this a few minutes ago:

(HT Common Cents)
(Warning: Video may not be SFW)

Actionable?

So Rachel Maddow and her cohorts at MSNBC revealed Trumps tax returns for 2005 against his wishes (or at leaset without his consent).
Which is a Federal Crime punishable by 5 years in prison and $5000 in fines.
Plus, since they left his Social Security number visible would seem to open up a whole lot more civil damages. President Trump ought a sue 'em for about $250 million and then donate that damage award to a worthy cause.....like Meals on Wheels.












How to save money at the Gunshow:

Went to the bank yesterday, got some cash for the gunshow.

Got up this morning, picked up the backpack and drove 2 hours to the Indy 1500.

Where I realized that I had left the envelope with cash back on the desk......

Luckily I did not see any deals that I could not do without.



'Twas a good gunshow. Less "white"..... lots of black dudes with the kids... Not just white dudes with their kids. (lots more of both, actually) Either they are getting more family oriented or they are just going places where they used to not. Either way, a good thing. The more we get people interested (and participating) in second Amendment issues the better.

Amalgamation:

Writ LARGE.

So I am in the grocery line checking out yesterday....

Ahead of me is a dude of obvious Chinese descent buying Corn Tortillas, Swiss Cheese, and Corned beef.
I commented on the mix.
He smiled and said the Russians he worked with had given him the recipe for  "Irish Tacos".

Think on it.......
This is supposed to be how America works.

Not enclaves where they don't speak English at all.

Incompetence....

Approaching BATF(E) level of incompetence.

One would have thought that the Secret Service might have some standards.

Apparently not.


Nothing like it....

On a cold spring day, 36 degrees and drizzle, after being outside, there is nothing better than the heat given off by a hot woodstove to warm you up.

Some shit technology just can't improve.

A Good Idea

A "Snowflake" test for new applicants:

Job applicants for a Connecticut-based marketing company have a unique “snowflake” test to pass before being hired.

Of course, it is likely that the liberals in the Justice Department will get with the weenies in the Department of Labor....and sue them for this test...Discrimination and/or something like Civil Rights or something. Having had to hire millenials, I gotta tell you that finding good ones can be a challenge.

Didja notice?

So since the "Russians hacked the elections" meme didn't fly even though the news media pushed it HARD (even Democrats Hillary voters Liberals aren't that stupid), the Media and the DNC types have finally stopped bleating about it  every 5 minutes?

Then they tried the "Trump is Anti-Semitic" (which fails on any examination of the facts) and "Trumpers are doing terrible things to Jews because Trump" But that didn't fly because reality kept smacking them in the face.....The Jewish cemetery's that were trashed.....were just neglect by JEWS......The bomb threats were called in by other Jews or Democrats Hillary voters.

So what will the next meme be? The "Taxes" meme? Rachel Maddow's minion got sent Trump's return (from 2005?) "anonymously" via mail....."Appeared in my mailbox!".. and it showed that he paid taxes. Quite substantial taxes.

Now what will they try?

Someone who wasn't paying attention (or unconscious) might think that what with ABC/CNN/NBC/CBS/NPR and the major east and west coast papers all playing the same song at the same time...that someone was coordinating this......

Kinda like Barry and his anti gun agenda and all those mass shootings.......

And without any Federal "Help"

 (Angel already posted on this)

Give Texas farmers and ranchers 48 hours and they’ll answer a call from anywhere.
Even from way up in the Panhandle.

'Course, that is the midwest....Conservatives and all that.

Do what they think needs to be done without 'Government" deciding or telling 'em what to do. That is what happens in "Flyover Country".

In the East or West coast, they'd still be waiting on someone from the "government" to show up....While the Midwest has done fixed the problem already.


I don't want TrumpCare

any more than I want ObamaCare.

I want full repeal.

No federal healthcare requirements. Just like we had in the beginning of 2010...Before Barry Fucked everyone that had employer provided insurance or bought their own insurance.

CBO says we'd be better off with FULL Repeal.

And isn't that what the Republicans (and TheDonald) promised us they would do once elected? Once the Republicans had control of both houses?

Well, boys and girls, you got it. House, Senate, and the white house.

None of this Mamby-Pamby "incremental" bullshit that Ryan is all for. FULL REPEAL.

Do what you promised.
