Britain Out Of EU, PM David Cameron To Step Down Also

Damn, those pesky Globalists really took a couple of shots to the nose yesterday.
Not only does that work for me, I want more please.
This is one area where heartily endorse kicking a bunch of assholes while they are down.

Scotland seems to be less than pleased about the outcome and are already making plans for another referendum, Ireland also didn't seem to want it either but both are part and parcel of Great Britain and the majority of votes cast went towards walking away from the EU.

As expected, the markets all took a massive dump upon hearing the news but that is just a normal knee jerk reaction.

David Cameron bailing out as Prime Minister is also going to be adding insult to injury to the Global Elite and their plans for World Dominance as he was a well trained little puppy who's vote they could count on whenever it came to fucking over the citizens in favor of consolidation with the EU.

The next one in that position may well not be so amenable to such chicanery.
We shall see.

I was just trying to explain some of this to my 17 year old niece and the best analogy I could come up with was that this is going to be a historic event almost on the level of the Berlin Wall coming down.

Brexit: David Cameron to quit after UK votes to leave EU

Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down by October after the UK voted to leave the European Union.
Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, he said "fresh leadership" was needed.
The PM had urged the country to vote Remain but was defeated by 52% to 48% despite London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backing staying in.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed it as the UK's "independence day", while Boris Johnson said the result would not mean "pulling up the drawbridge".
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she was "absolutely determined" to keep Scotland in the EU so a second Scottish independence referendum was now "highly likely".
German chancellor Angela Merkel expressed "great regret" at the outcome, and EU chiefs said they expected the UK to begin negotiations to leave "as soon as possible, however painful that process may be".
But Boris Johnson, the ex-London mayor and public face of Vote Leave who is now a front-runner to be next prime minister, said there was "no need for haste" about severing the UK's ties.
He said voters had "searched in their hearts" and the UK now had a "glorious opportunity" to pass its own laws, set its own taxes and control its own borders.
Another leading Leave campaigner, Labour's Gisela Stuart, said the UK would be a "good neighbour" when it left the EU.
The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.
The slide halted when the Bank of England said it stood ready with £250bn of extra funding to ensure market stability. But the pound remains 8% down against the dollar, and 6% lower against the euro.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who called for the UK to remain in the EU but was accused of a lukewarm campaign, said poorer communities were "fed up" with cuts and felt "marginalised by successive governments".
There have been calls for him to consider his position after some of the strongest votes to leave the EU came from traditional Labour heartlands

This is  , to use a tired cliche from the 90's, a major paradigm shift in world affairs and the scramble to fill the power vacuum created by it has already started.

Pass the popcorn, it is going to be highly entertaining to see how the PTB scramble to consolidate their remaining influence..

Supreme Court Indecision Slams Door Shut On Obama's Immigration Plans

Anything that throws a Fuck into his plans works for me.

Supreme Court deadlock deals defeat to Obama immigration plan

An ideologically-deadlocked Supreme Court dealt a severe blow Thursday to President Obama’s immigration reform plan, casting the November election as a referendum on how to deal with the more than 11 million people living in the country illegally.

The 4-4 vote leaves in place a Texas federal judge’s order that has prevented Obama from granting deportation relief and work permits to more than 4 million immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents.

The tie means it will be left to the next president, the next Congress and possibly a nine-member high court to address what is widely seen as a broken immigration system.

The dispute was one of the major clashes this year before the Supreme Court, and the stalemate demonstrated once again how the current eight-member court – left equally divided since the February death of Justice Antonin Scalia – has been unable to issue definitive rulings in the most contested cases.

The justices issued a one-line decision in United States vs. Texas saying the judgment of the lower court “is affirmed by an equally divided court.”

The split was almost certainly along the familiar ideological lines, though the justices' votes were not revealed.

During oral arguments in April, the conservative justices, all Republican appointees, had voiced support for the lawsuit by Texas and 25 other Republican-led states, which said Obama’s order was illegal.

The four liberal justices, all Democratic appointees, appeared to favor the administration and its claims that the president has broad power under immigration law to set enforcement policies.

In announcing his Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents in 2014, Obama said that deportations should focus on criminals, gang members and people who repeatedly cross the border, but not on immigrant parents of U.S. citizens.

Obama proposed to allow people who fit this category to come forward, undergo a background check and receive a work permit if they qualified. It was similar to a previous program that benefited immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, dubbed “Dreamers.” That program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is unaffected by Thursday's ruling.

Texas state lawyers said Obama's second immigration-reform plan went too far. They sued in a federal court in Brownsville. A judge issued a national order preventing Obama’s plan from going into effect, and the 5th Circuit Court in New Orleans upheld that order.

Obama mourned his defeat Thursday, calling the court’s non-decision “disappointing” and “frustrating.”

I'm sure a few rounds of Golf will take his mind off it.

Republicans Ignore Attention Whore Democrat Publicity Stunt Sit In, Adjourn Until After July 4th.

Of course the Democrats are calling it a win even though they got Bupkiss for their troubles.

Democrats' calls for gun control vote ignored as House adjourns until after July 4

Democrat leaders attempted to force a vote on gun control legislation by carrying out an hours-long sit-in on the House floor, but Republican leaders ignored the calls and the chants and carried on with legislative business late Wednesday into early Thursday.

The House adjourned around 3:15 a.m. ET Thursday, and even as Republicans left the buildings, Democrats stayed on the House floor repeating their chant “No bill no break!” and waving papers with the names of gun victims written in black. Rep. Maxine Waters of California said she was ready to stay “until Hell freezes over.”

As the sit-in extended into the early dawn, Democrats began to wind down the protest. However, a core group still lingered on the House floor wrapped in blankets and resting on pillows. A crowd cheered them on from outside the Capitol and many more following the theatrics on social media.

Democrats declared success in dramatizing the arguments for action to stem gun violence, despite the failure to conjure a vote.

"Just because they cut and run in the dark of night, just because they have left doesn't mean we are taking no for an answer," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"We won't stop until the job is done," the Californian declared to fellow Democrats camped out in the well of the House in the early hours of the morning, saying the party had changed "the dynamic of what happens" concerning guns.

My emphasis.

That says in plain English that they went full Drama Queen when they didn't get their way and are trying to save face in their failure by calling a loss a win by saying they "changed the dynamic"

Whatever the fuck that is supposed to mean.

What a bunch of pud pullers.

Impotent Democratic Representatives Throw Hissy Fit And Stage Sit In On House Floor To Demand Gun Control

The Sargeant Of Arms should have them dragged out into the street by their ankles.

House Democrats stage protest to demand gun control bill

Several dozen U.S. House Democrats pushing for action on gun control protested on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, chanting "no bill, no break!" and demanding that the chamber put off an upcoming recess until legislation is debated.

The protest was the latest bold move by Democrats to persuade the Republican majority in Congress to consider gun control legislation in response to last week's mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, which was the deadliest in modern U.S. history.

The Democrats stood or sat at the front of the chamber, where such disruptive tactics are relatively rare. When the presiding House officer, Republican Representative Ted Poe, entered the chamber, he declared the House not in order. After banging the gavel several times in an attempt to clear the protesters, he announced the chamber would be in recess and left.

The Democrats remained on the House floor, calling for action before a vacation recess scheduled to start at the end of the week and run through July 5.

Shortly before that, Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn, likened the push for gun control action to the civil rights movement of the 1960s when sit-ins and other civil disobedience prodded Washington to act on new protections for African-Americans.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for the sit-in, saying, "This is what real leadership looks like.

Gotta love the media cheerleading in this piece.

"Bold Move" my achin' ass. What would they write if these pukes actually started stamping their little feets and holding their breath?

And Clinton, give me a fucking break. This isn't leadership, it's a group tantrum, go fuck yourself bitch and quit encouraging them.

You just had 4, count 'em, 4, attempts at your idea of Gun Control get shot down in flames a couple days ago.

Face it you idiots, we are tired of your shit.

Your Feel Good legislation does abso-fucking-lutely nothing to prevent crime.
It has been proven over and over and over again to the point that you are quite questionably retarded to keep bringing it up.

I have no idea who you think you are impressing with this little stunt because it sure as shit in't going to be any full grown adults that I know.
They would send you into the corner for a time out or send you to bed to take a nap.

Kuntsman. Good Name For A Pussy

I'm sure you have all heard about the lamest fucking pussy bastard in recent memory who wrote an article for the New York Daily News about his horrifying experience shooting an AR-15 by now.

Published on Jun 16, 2016
Gersh Kuntzman of the New York Daily News wrote:

"What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very, very loud. It felt to me like a bazooka — and sounded like a cannon. ... I’ve shot pistols before, but never something like an AR-15. Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection). The recoil bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don't know what you're doing. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable." - An adult man

Well Mr. Kunstman, because you are a sackless waste of testosterone, this is for you.

When Men Were Men And Women Were Nervous

Check it, no life jackets and I'll bet the guy is looking down to make sure he doesn't spill his beer.

Try that shit these days and you would have every motherfucker on the lake squealing to the cops on their cell phone and you would be arrested the second you hit the dock.

Oh Yeah, Daddy Scored Big Time Yesterday

It was a very, very good day for me.

The Wifely Unit went above and beyond and then I treated myself to a couple of items I have been wanting for a long time.

First she got up and make French Toast, sausage and bacon for breakfast. That was much appreciated because I woke up hungry.

While she was doing that I was browsing through my Email and saw a Fathers Day special from my little friends a Horror Freight.
They had a coupon for a little welding cart I have been wanting for over a year now but I wasn't paying fifty bucks for.

$29.99 I can do though.

There must have been thirty little bolts to put this thing together but I got it slammed together and put my little Wire Feed on it, the helmet, gloves, extra spool of wire and can of Anti Splatter all fit nicely too.I bought a used wire feed from some guy at work last year and it has a regulator on it so I can use gas to shield the arc instead of having to use flux core wire. That shit spatters all over the place.

I had it on a modified hand cart and every time I went to move it the damn thing would slide off and the cover come off. No way to hang the cables either. A real PITA. Now I can get rid of that cobbled together little thing and this will roll right out of the way. I still need to get a bottle of Argon but that's a hundred bucks and down the road a bit.

So after breakfast she hands me a fairly thick envelope.
It had the newest Disturbed CD in It that I have been listening the shit out of on Youtube for the last month.

Oh yeah, I'm liking that.

The card inside had a Daddy To Do list and some tickets.
This is where it got good.

Not only am I going to see one iconic Rock and Roll show by someone I have never seen before and always wanted to,

I am going to two.

Holy shit on a shingle, when I saw those Black Sabbath tickets the hair stood up on my arms.
I have never seen them because they never really came anywhere near here and now they are practically going to be in my back yard!!

I told her a couple of months ago that I wanted to see both of these shows before either one of them or I fall over and croak.

Apparently she does listen to me some times.

After all that excitement died down, her and the crew went to see her Dad and I had my boy come over for some quality time. Like everyone else these days we hardly ever get to see each other because life keeps us busy.
He was here Saturday at the party and I asked whay he was doing for Fathers day and he said nothing. His GF and little boy are in Chicago visiting relatives so I told him to come over and we would Barbeque some steaks or something.
He said that would be great.

The only problem with that is I had no Grill. I tossed the old one when we moved.

I jumped in The Rat and took off to Lowes and scored yet again.
The wife said she didn't want another propane grill and I was pretty much resigned to the fact that I was going to wind up with one of these,

I mean, they work and all that but I have never been a big fan.

Imagine my surprise when I get there and see they have one of these for the same price as the Weber kettle grille.

Yeah, that's more like it!
I snagged one of those in the box and a cover for it too.

It was fun getting that 75 pound box into the Sprite but there is no passenger seat and it fit perfectly. I just hoisted it over the door and plopped it onto the floor.
Back to the house, wrestle the fucker back out, grabbed a hand cart to roll it into the garage and more bolts and screws to put together.
They must have thrown some generic fucking hardware package in it because I wound up being short several bolts and had a bunch left over that did not go on this unit.

Being the Pack Rat that I am though, I dug into my little bins and came up with some Stainless Steel stuff and me and the boy finally got it put together.

The really nice thing about this grill is that not only does it have cast iron grills inside, you can buy a side burner set up that bolts right on and use it as a smoker!

The cover I bought was made specifically for this unit and will cover them both and so that little option is going to be a done deal here shortly.

It works great and the kid and I had steaks, baked potatoes, corn on the cob and some grilled Aneheim peppers for dinner last night while we watched the Cavaliers win the basketball championship.

I had a very, very good Fathers day and I hope all you Dad's out there did too.

Taking A Closer Look At The Slur Of Being Called Islamophobic

Just out of curiosity I decided to look up a couple of definitions.
First, lets start with the root word of the term Islamophobia, the word phobia.

Merriam-Webster defines a phobia as "an extremely strong dislike or fear of someone or something".

OK, moving on, lets see the definition of the word Islam from the same source :" the religion which teaches that there is only one God and that Muhammad is God's prophet : the religion of Muslims".

So to take this term Islamophobia literally, it means the strong dislike or fear of the religion of Muslims.
There are other ways to take this of course but for this discussion I'm going with this one.

After getting these definitions I Google searched Islamophobia and went directly to that bastion of Liberalism, U.C. Berkeley to get their take on it.

Defining "Islamophobia"

The term "Islamophobia" was first introduced as a concept in a 1991 Runnymede Trust Report and defined as "unfounded hostility towards Muslims, and therefore fear or dislike of all or most Muslims." The term was coined in the context of Muslims in the UK in particular and Europe in general, and formulated based on the more common "xenophobia" framework.

The report pointed to prevailing attitudes that incorporate the following beliefs:

Islam is monolithic and cannot adapt to new realities
Islam does not share common values with other major faiths
Islam as a religion is inferior to the West.
It is archaic, barbaric, and irrational.
Islam is a religion of violence and supports terrorism.
Islam is a violent political ideology.
For the purposes of anchoring the current research and documentation project, we provide the following working definition:

Islamophobia is a contrived fear or prejudice fomented by the existing Eurocentric and Orientalist global power structure. It is directed at a perceived or real Muslim threat through the maintenance and extension of existing disparities in economic, political, social and cultural relations, while rationalizing the necessity to deploy violence as a tool to achieve "civilizational rehab" of the target communities (Muslim or otherwise). Islamophobia reintroduces and reaffirms a global racial structure through which resource distribution disparities are maintained and extended.

Now to dissect this a bit.

"Islamophobia is a contrived fear or prejudice fomented by the existing Eurocentric and Orientalist global power structure."

In other words, don't believe your lying eyes, there is a conspiracy to smear these people by some amorphous group of people in the world who apparently have a lot of power, somewhere over yonder.
We are back to this irrational fear and aversion thing.

I don't know about you, but I believe I have a very rational reason to be averse to things like this,

I could go on here for days but I'm quite sure you get what I am trying to say.
Back to the list,

"Islam is monolithic and cannot adapt to new realities".

Devout Islamic Muslims study the Quran and the lesser known to Western Culture, The Sunna.

The Sunna

“The Sunna” in Arabic literally means, “a clear or well trodden path”. It refers to whatever Muhammad said, did, condoned, or condemned. It is the record of Muhammad’s sayings, customs, teachings, or the example that he left for all Muslims to follow. Muslims view Muhammad as being the perfect example for all human beings.

They take the teachings in this literature to heart and follow their directives without question.
The charge of being monolithic and unable or unwilling to adapt to new realities is pretty much undeniable.
Take one hard look at how the adherents to ISIS take these works literally and I think you will agree.

"Islam does not share common values with other major faiths."

Most of the religions I know about don't call for mandatory conversion or death, although there was that whole Inquisition thing. enough said there.

"Islam as a religion is inferior to the West."

Who am I to rate anyone's religion and how does one go about that anyway?

"It is archaic, barbaric, and irrational."

I would have to say that other than the Pastafarian's referenced above, most all religions would have to be considered "archaic".
Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, all are pretty much long in the tooth and have been around a while without any real changes to their principles set down at inception.


Most definitely, see the photos above in case you need any reminders.

As for irrational, ask any Atheist and they will tell you all religions are irrational.

"Islam is a religion of violence and supports terrorism."

Take a quick gander at a very short list and make up your own mind.

"Islam is a violent political ideology."

Google the words Islam violent ideology.

The number two search result, right behind a Wikipedea link is this,

Research: Islam really is the world’s most violent religion

Together with a number of research assistants, the Danish linguist Tina Magaard spent three years examining the texts of the ten largest religions. The purpose was to investigate whether any of the religions incite violence.

The conclusion was clear: “The texts of Islam are clearly distinct from the other religions texts as they, to a higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror. … Moreover, in the Qur’an there are hundreds of invitations to fight against people of other faiths.”

The verses are in black and white and without mitigating context. One of the verses that deal with non-Muslims is: “So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them.” (Qur’an 47: 4).

In conclusion, after fisking the Islamic apologist dogma and their attempt to slur people who have a very justifiable aversion to the religion of Islam and it's more zealous followers I can answer this question;

Am I Islamophobic?

If You Want Me, I'll Be In The Garage

Good Lord.

The wife decided she (meaning we) needed to throw some kind of shindig to celebrate the fact the kid actually graduated from high school.
Oh the fuckery.

She has been running around in full Momma Chicken/panicked housewife mode all damn day. Cleaning and decorating and bossing people around left and right trying to get shit done.

I ain't no dummy, I been to Grandma's house before.
I figured this would be an excellent time to go pressure wash the moss off the siding on the front of the house, the gutters and the front sidewalk.

Out of sight, out of mind.

That boy would be wise to grasp this concept.

So after I got done with that shit, I stuck my nose in the house and see she has worked herself into a true frenzy while I was busy.

Fuuuuuuuuck this noise!

Off into the garage I slunk.

I made busy with some stupid stuff but got caught. She opened the door from the house to hang up a broom and dustpan.

You've heard of the Deer In The Headlights Look before?
Yeah, that was me looking for somewhere else to be in a hurry.

She must have had something else pressing to do and just gave me a hard look before turning back and going into the house again.

Time for Plan B, escape to the store.
I snuck back out and ran down t the store to pick up some Coke and a six pack of Hefewizen for my kid. This should give me about twenty minutes of relaxation.

But no.
Damn cell phones anyway.
I no more than paid for the stuff when the phone goes off and there she is asking me where in the hell I am at.

So I tell her and she is all panicked again because she needs to go pick up the food and I need to be at home to watch the oldest boy.

Of course she never mentioned this trivial piece of information to me beforehand.

I'll be back in 5 minutes dear, hold your water.
So I just got back and off she went.

This gives me just a few precious moments of peace to write this before she gets back and a bunch of people start showing up.

Oh joy, I just can't wait for this little Fandango to start.
