A New Year

As always, one can only hope that the near future will be an improvement over the past.
I certainly wish you a happy and prosperous New year and thank you for swinging by my little rant hole on occasion.

One thing is as certain as the fact that rust never sleeps,and that is neither does the actions of a tyrannical government. A new year is certain to bring new revelations of abuse being lined up with your name on it.
Keep the pressure on the bastards in the coming year because the clock is ticking down and their pace is accelerating.

Never stop resisting.

Dammit. Another One Bites The Dust

This just sucks.

My Pal See Sea is hanging it up.

Been thinking about this long and hard the last couple weeks. I’ve been at this blogging thing since April of 2008. Met some great folks, beat back trolls, took a lot of heat for my viewpoints…

I am done blogging. In spite of the good it has done me on a spiritual level, it has cost me two jobs. Sorry if the truth hurts, but there is no such thing as freedom of speech for an “employee”. Just too many busybodies out there with nothing better to do than fuck over their fellow man just because they didn’t like something someone said. And far too few “fellow men” willing to back someone up for exercising their rights. Just ask 4th of July Patriot and Adam Kokesh, both of whom are rotting in prison right now for exercising their rights.

I am not willing to join them. The lesson they taught me, same as so many chicken shit co-workers, is that I am alone. I’ll be left to swing in the breeze should I stick my neck out. Roger that, lessons learned. So I will now shut the fuck up and fade back into obscurity. Can’t do shit right now anyway because I’m still nursing a broken heel, but that will soon be a non issue.

Now for those of you who ain't in the know, "Sea See" is the recent incarnation of a guy who, as he says, has been Blogging since 2008 under various Nom De Plume's.
He basically re started from scratch because some asshole neighbor got wind of his old Blog and made life Hell for the guy, ultimately resulting in some really, really, bad shit.

Me and Ol' See Sea go back a long ways on the internet.
I'll be damned if I can remember how I stumbled upon his little rant hole but I know it was when I first really had the Patriot stirrings.

There was just an instant affinity.

We had a ton of things in common and the same Fuck You attitude to go with it. We hit it off right away.

I'm going to miss his point of view and that fiercely independent spirit that is always right there for all to see.

He is a good man.

It's a cryin' shame but I can certainly understand his reasons and respect his decision.

Vaya Con Dios Amigo, mi casa es su casa y siempre habrá una cerveza fría a su disposición.

Is That A Kilt?

Don't Forget To Lead Them A Little

One tracer round every fifth bullet helps.

FAA names 6 sites for testing drones
"Today's announcement by the FAA is an important milestone on the path toward unlocking the potential of unmanned aircraft," said Michael Toscano, the industry group's CEO. "From advancing scientific research and responding to natural disasters to locating missing persons and helping to fight wildfires, (unmanned aircraft) can save time, save money, and, most importantly, save lives. "

FAA will work with all the sites to get at least one operating within the next six months. The sites are:

• University of Alaska, which has diverse climate and a variety of test sites, including in Hawaii and Oregon. The university plans to work on state monitoring, navigation and safety standards.

• State of Nevada, which plans to study standards for operators and certification requirements. The state will also study how air-traffic control procedures will evolve to handle drones.

• New York's Griffiss International Airport near Utica, which plans to research how drones and passenger aircraft will sense and avoid each other, to prevent collisions, particularly in the congested Northeast airspace.

• North Dakota Department of Commerce, which plans to develop airworthiness data and validate the reliability of links between pilots and unmanned aircraft.

• Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, which plans to develop safety systems for drones.

• Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, which has test locations in Virginia and New Jersey, plans to test failure modes and technical risks for drones, to ensure they land safely if they lose connection with a pilot.

"These test sites will give us valuable information about how best to ensure the safe introduction of this advanced technology into our nation's skies," Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said

Comedy Gold

I have a nephiew who is a pretty good kid.
I think he is like 22-23 or so, my brothers kid.
They are very much alike apparently.
The poor bastard just moved back out here from South Carolina, drove clear across the country in a Chevy Blazer.
Him and a buddy.

So when he gets out here he has a job up on MT. Hood and he says the whole way across the country, in the snow and slush and mud flying, his windshield washers didn't work. He wants me to take a look at it before he heads up to even more snow and mud and slush.

Just bring it by before I go to work and I will at least take a look at it I says.

I quit working on cars years ago because they absolutely bury shit and you can't get to the simple things like a fucking washer pump, without dismantling a bunch of shit like inner fender wells or worse, to get to them

So he shows up and it was great to see the kid.
Good looking little hunk of a dude, he must have to beat the wimmins off with a stick.

So I go out and start taking a look to see how buried this washer pump is and was pleasantly surprised that I could get right to them.
Yes, them. That was a new one for me, the damn thing has two washer pumps!

So I have him turn the key on and push the button.


I go back inside and grab a test light and start looking for fuses to see if one is blown.

Another thing about newer cars is that the fucking assholes like to hide the fuse panels all over the place. So as I am checking the ones under the hood I ask him where the one is inside the rig.

He says it's under the back seat!

He is pulling shit out trying to get to the seat and I am standing behind him.

Just for shits and grins, I reach in and hit the washer switch and away they go, squirting fluid all over the damn place.zzzzzzZZZZZZZzzzz! zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzz.!

I says to him, does that work for ya?

He is shocked and says to me, what did you do?

I twisted the knob for the washers, right here.

Ya see that paddle looking thing?
that's the washer switch, you twist that. It's the same one that is on my thirty year old El Camino.

The poor kid. He is definitely my brothers son, no clue about things automotive.
There is a switch out on the end of the stalk for the cruise control or something and he had been pressing on that, all the way across the country.

I was laughing so hard I almost choked.

Burn The Motherfucker To The Ground

Every once in a while someone posts something that makes your neck sore because you are nodding your head in agreement the whole time you are reading it.

This, is one of those times

From a comment left over at WRSA, a link to a lengthy tirade that very emphatically points out that our current system isn't broken, it's working as designed and that there is a club and we ain't in it.

It's a hell of a thing to realize but I agree with that conclusion, which is why I have been saying for quite a while now that The Rule Of Law is dead.

If the very laws on the books can be ignored by the people of the ruling class and the enforcement class yet used punitively against you and I then in my opinion it's all fair game at this point.

Anything that can be gotten away with should be.

Sure it sounds good to burn the system down and start over but in reality we all know that isn't going to happen anytime soon so in the mean time it's pretty much every man for himself.

I know I'm certainly not associated with any group that extends the kind of privileges described by Mr. Clark.

It might not yet happen in my lifetime at this point but it has already started and there is going to be Hell to pay when critical mass gets reached and The Sheeple wake the fuck up enough to see that they have the same rights as a fucking chicken at a processing plant.

Basically they can eat, sleep, shut up and die.

The problem is that even innocent citizens are being caught up in a system run amok and watching their dogs get shot to death for no reason, their doors broken down in the middle of the night and they themselves being killed ,because the system is working.

At this point in time, one would be wise to keep ones head and ass down so as not to stick out and very quietly go about getting prepared for a shooting war, because it is coming.

NSA Can Only Process A Fraction Of The Data It Collects.

Waste your time sorting through stupid Email jokes, Aunt Mabel's Fruit cake recipe's and inane teenagers angst filled babbling all damn day as far as I'm concerned.

NSA drowning in overcollected data, can't do its job properly

Cory Doctorow at 8:00 pm Fri, Dec 27, 2013

NSA whistleblower William Binney warns that the agency collects so much useless information that it can't process it effectively.

"What they are doing is making themselves dysfunctional by taking all this data," Mr. Binney said at a privacy conference here. The agency is drowning in useless data, which harms its ability to conduct legitimate surveillance, claims Mr. Binney, who rose to the civilian equivalent of a general during more than 30 years at the NSA before retiring in 2001. Analysts are swamped with so much information that they can't do their jobs effectively, and the enormous stockpile is an irresistible temptation for misuse...

In a statement through his lawyer, Mr. Snowden says: "When your working process every morning starts with poking around a haystack of seven billion innocent lives, you're going to miss things." He adds: "We're blinding people with data we don't need."

Can't see the stuff they are actually looking for because they are Hoovering EVERYTHING!

It's called "Information Overload" you paranoid control freak cocksuckers and I hope you choke on it.

Piers Morgan Runs His Mouth One Too Many Times

As usual the asshole was talking smack, this time about Cricket players and the challenge was issued.
Hilarity ensues as he gets whacked by multiple 90 mile an hour fast balls.

I'll give him credit for not pussing out but you know damn good and well he felt that shit later.

When CNN's Piers Morgan criticized England's cricket team in November for being "too slow," former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee challenged him to a one-on-one battle so Morgan could get a taste of what the game is really like. But we never actually thought he'd do it.

We were very wrong. On Thursday, in front of the entire stadium at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia, Morgan suited up to face 6 balls from one of the fastest bowlers in the world.

Keep flapping your gums asshole, you will get what you are asking for.

I'm Beat

Putting in overtime again and I will be working all weekend too.

In case you didn't know, I actually work for a living, hard work.
Climbing up and down off machinery and wrenching on all kinds of weird shit in all kinds of stressful positions.
Some of the wrenches I use weigh ten pounds apiece.
I also do a lot of walking back and forth all day.

If it gets a bit quiet for a while around here now you will know why.

In the mean time.....

I Thought He Was Just Off His Meds

This would explain some of those bizarre facial expressions.

That and excessive intestinal gas.

It's Getting Ridiculously Dangerous When Ya Can't Even Go To A Movie Without Six Hundred Idiots Brawling In The Parking Lot

This is why I hate living near a Big City.
I want to move out in the brush so far I can't even see my nearest neighbor but my wife refuses to even consider it.

I grew up in smaller towns and was never more than two or three minutes away from a forest.
I miss that shit, badly. Especially when I see more and more of this kind of insanity.

600 People Involved in Movie Theater Brawl, 5 Arrested

Five teenagers were arrested when a 600-person brawl broke out in a Florida movie theater's parking lot on Christmas night.

Described by police as a "melee," the fight occurred around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday outside the Hollywood River City 14 movie theater in Jacksonville when a group tried to storm the theater's doors without purchasing tickets, police said. Several had rushed an off-duty police officer working as a security guard.

The officer "administered pepper spray to disperse the group, locked the doors and called for backup, following protocol," said Lauri-Ellen Smith, a spokeswoman for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Soon after the pepper spray was used, "upward of 600 people moving throughout a parking lot about the size of a football field began fighting, disrupting and jumping on cars," she said.

Sixty-two police officers were called to the scene to break up the brawl, "sequestering them and separating them," Smith said.

Only minor injuries and damage to property were reported. No gunshots were fired, according to Smith.

All five of the people arrested on the scene were charged with crimes related to fighting. Three of those arrested, including one minor, were charged with felonies. Two other juveniles, who have not been named by police, were charged with misdemeanors.

Can you even begin to imagine that?!
600 people fighting in a parking lot over...what?

Over nothing!

They weren't fighting over food, water or even some stupid sale at WalMart.
Just being violent, ignorant, assholes with nothing better to do.

No thanks.
I am still going to seriously start looking for a place at least that isn't at the edge of the local Ghetto.
Which I am in and didn't know about until after I had been here a while.

I am one street away from a different neighborhood zone which means I am one street in to one of the worst neighborhoods in this little burgh.

So far there hasn't been a lot of crime close by because I am up the hill and at the far end away from the worst of it but I see what I have running around the area.It ain't pretty.

I have had the cops blockade my dead end street three times in the middle of the night while they sent two more cars with search lights up and down looking for some creep or other.

I don't like that, one little bit, either.

Nope, too many assholes around here for my taste and when I see news articles like that one it makes me want to get clear the hell out of any city limits.

I have lived and worked in some Big Cities and I can tell you for a fact that I am a country boy trapped in Suburbia.

I do believe San Jose was worse than San Francisco too.
At least I didn't live in San Francisco, I just had to commute close by for a couple of years.
Just South of the main part.
San Jose was real bad. I am surprised I lived through that now that I look back at all the shit I pulled and how trigger happy the cops were even back in the 80's.

It Would Be Just My Luck

H/T my Buddy Ben.

Christmas is over, back to that Naughty List I go pal.

This End Up

At least you will know what to call her when ya tell her to hit the bricks......

I Know What I Am, What Are You?

Go read this article by California Statesman Tim Donnely

I can say that there is no argument to his conclusions from me.

"Yes, there is a second American Revolution. It has already begun. The question is whether the tyrants, who control our government, will surrender peacefully or if, we the people, will have to use force to restore freedom to our land."

Answer the question he asks at the very end, after that quote, honestly.

I know what my answer was.

What's yours?

You Can Just Call Me Clyde Today

Because I made out like a bandit this morning!

My lovely wife, I'll call her Bonnie today, surprised the living shit out of me.
Man oh man, did she surprise me.

Hello Mr. Bushnell!

One gorgeous 3X9 scope for my .30.06 that is in desperate need of one.

Then there was a certain box that I almost dropped on the floor when she handed it to me.
Sheeit was it heavy.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened that one up.

My lovely wife actually went and found a bunch of ammo I have been looking for, at the same damn place I have been going to and they were always out! She must have gotten there mere seconds after they put it on the shelf.
What really surprised me is that she even got all the calibers right!!

The woman never ceases to amaze me.
I have some more sighting in to do in my future.

I also scored some other goodies but these were just exceptional surprises to me.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
I know things are tight all over, has been for six or seven years now.

My wife loves this Christmas business so I am positive she has been squirreling away the money for this stuff all damn year.

I don't have that kind of self control which is why she is in charge of paying the bills and things.

I can't wait for it to start warming up again.

In the mean time I will be heading to the lumber yard for a couple of very expensive boards.

There are a couple of small wood working projects that I want to get done before I tear into that damn Sprite again because that engine is going to get scattered all over every available surface so I can clean and measure stuff before I start ordering parts.

I have been semi patiently waiting for this Christmas bullshit to be over with so I can get her decorations and shit put away before I make the big mess that I know is coming.

So, Like Christmas Light Shows, Do Ya?

Merry Christmas to ya.
One thing you can bet the farm on is that you won't be seeing anything like this in my neighborhood.
It's pretty damn cool though!

My Kind Of Christmas Special

This one's for you.

Merry Christmas to Crazy Uncle Bubba

I found this just a few minutes ago and immediately thought of Bubba.
Stevie Ray Vaughn doing a sound check with his band in 1986, right after he woke up. You can see him yawning trying to get woke up and then it's like someone flipped a switch! About 17 minutes of pure Stevie Ray with no background noise from a crowd. You can really see and hear him hit the licks.

From the Youtube page;

Published on Apr 12, 2013

"Stevie just waking up then warming up. Insane how good can you really be that tired? Turn it up and enjoy. Original Source: This was filmed Jan 1986 by Greg Savage of Savage Guitar Design and is used with permission.

In Case You Thought I Was Joking

You guys are killin' me.
Buncha fucking perverts is all I got comin' around here.

I checked my Blogger Stats briefly and there it was again.


Nothing but boobs too, except one Anti Feinstein query or so. At least someone out there must have already found the boobs.

Look for yourself.

(Click to embigify)

I think what kills me is that if ya want boobs,that's what Google is for. I don't post THAT many pictures of chesty young ladies fer cryin' out loud.
How in the world looking for boobs gives ya a return to this joint flat out mystifies me.

Like I said before though, if that's what y'all want.......

Ya sick puppies.



I got that Christmas shopping bullshit done this afternoon while the wife and her kids watched the Seahawk's game.

The best part of the whole damn thing was that I never stepped foot in a fucking mall.
It's a miracle I'm tellin' ya!

I have news for the stupid fuck that came up with this Demotivational poster,

If you see an old Greybeard in a fucking mall it ain't because he is there to look at jail bait.
He is either on a mission and wants to get in and get out or he is with his wife/girlfriend and just wants out, period.

This has been perfectly illustrated in case you were unaware.

We do not like malls.

They are full of ignorant, noisy and obnoxious people that we want nothing to do with.Starting at the parking lot.

So now I am going to see an old friend and wait for it to be over.

If You Like Your Santa, You Can Keep Your Santa

I like this Santa.

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Wait, WHAT? It's HOW MUCH?!!

Holy Moly I'm in the wrong business.

I was out Christmas shopping today (strike 1) and had to go to Wally World (strike2) for something on the wife's list.
Some fucking hair curler dealie.
I had The List wadded up in my pocket so I didn't fuck anything up.
She wrote the list knowing full well that if she didn't spell it out for me the odds were good I would fuck it up.

So I have The List and I head over to Wally World not too long after I was in Best Buy to get this hair curler.
Don't ask me what is so special about a hair curler, I have no fucking clue.
It's a round plastic stick looking thing with a long clamp thingie down one side and it gets hot.
That's what I know about hair curlers and that's ALL I ever wanted to know about hair curlers.

So I'm in the Freak Zone, wandering around looking for this thing and sure enough., they have a whole shit load of 'em.

This is why I have The List, so I get the right one.

I'm looking and I'm looking at these things and I'm thinking, these things gotta be cheap, there ain't nothin' to 'em.

Au Contrare Mon Ami, they have a rather wide price selection.
Who knew?

So I find the one I'm after, it's the only fucking one left, and it's got some kind of weird alarm kinda thing wrapped around it.

I'm not talking about some little tag, this thing is big... and round.
Almost as big as a fucking hockey puck and it's wrapped around the box like a love starved octopus.

I'm looking at this thing and wondering What The Fuck?
It's at the very top of the rack too.

What, it's a display model or something?
Fuck it, I'll just find out.

So I snag the damn thing and throw it in the cart and off I go.
Get, the fuck, outta this Freak Show Zone and go kick my feet up, after I throw it in one of those stupid assed fancy bags of course.

Amazingly, I didn't have to wait in some huge line and pretty quick, for Wal Mart anyway, I'm at the register.

I got her a Sea Hawks T shirt too because she is a maniac for that shit.

The lady scans the shirt while we exchange pleasantries and then scans the hair curler.

Did my eyes just deceive me?

Wait, how much was that thing again?
As I stand there with my VISA card in hand.

$98.89 she says.
Would I like the extended warranty for another $20?

Holy Fucking Shit!!

Are You Fucking Kidding Me?
A Hundred bucks for a Hair Curler?!!

Jesus H. Christ!

Hell NO I don't want the warranty.

There better be some FAAAAAAAABULOUS fucking hair dresser come to my house and do it for her for that kinda money!

I didn't know Snap On Tools made one of these things!

So I grab the box and take a closer look.
This don't look like any Hair Curler I've ever laid eyes on.

Great, it ain't Snap On, it's freakin' NASA!!

No wonder!
Were talking serious power tools here.

Now I get it.

The little woman did good, threw me a curve ball.
I'm going to have to pay a little closer attention now.

There Ain't A Damn Thing Wrong With You Honey

Yeah,I know Society can be a bunch of peckerheaded, petty sonsabitches.
Downright cruel at times.
That's when you dig down deep and stand up straight, tell 'em ALL to go Fuck themselves.
Don't let some stupid fucking twit try to make you feel bad about yourself, they are probably twice as fucked up and insecure as you are anyway.

Tell 'em to lick ya where ya pee and move on with your life.

Thats, A Fucking Car.

It sure as hell ain't got no wimpy 318 in it either.

I love it that it sets off car alarms just idling by.
I used to have a 61 Ford 1/2 ton short wide Unibody Pick up with a 351 Windsor in it that would do that too. I used to idle through apartment building parking lots late at night just to see how many drapes got yanked aside by people checking their cars.

Just In Case You Were Wondering

There Is A Special Place In My Heart For 'Em

The very first Fur Burger I got to see when I was a hopelessly ignorant teenager was on a cute little Fire Snatch who's name I can remember to this day even though it was over forty years ago.

Some things just leave a permanent mark.

I Have A Much Better Idea

Can you believe this shit?

Fairfax City to try a new approach to deer: surgical sterilization of does

Yeah, I have a much better idea, EAT THE MOTHERFUCKERS!! That's what they are for you dumb sonsabitches!

I just want to bang my fucking head on an anvil when I see stupid assed shit like this!

As the District and its highly populated suburbs grapple with their expanding deer populations, Fairfax City is planning a new approach: tranquilize and capture all the female deer in the six-square-mile city, take them to a surgical table and sterilize them to keep them from reproducing. The entire process, from “darting” to release, takes about 90 minutes. If Fairfax City receives clearance from the state Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, officials said it will be the first jurisdiction in Virginia to try the sterilization approach.

It’s an approach much preferred by animal rights groups, as opposed to straight deer killing, and Fairfax City Mayor Scott Silverthorne said that the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals connected him with a non-profit group called White Buffalo Inc. White Buffalo is run by Anthony J. DeNicola, a wildlife ecologist who has been actively involved in deer research for 25 years. He said he has studied the possibility of sterilizing deer by vaccine, but said the vaccines just aren’t strong enough to last yet.

So in the last four years, he has launched surgical sterilization programs in four other locations around the country, including one in Baltimore County, with no immediate repercussions. Now, with Fairfax City prepared to join the project, the research database will grow for examining its effectiveness in humanely reducing the herds which destroy vegetation, transport diseased ticks and leap in front of moving vehicles. Silverthorne said the sterilization process will not cost the taxpayers money: White Buffalo is funding it with its own resources.



And when they are all done the little Bambi makers will still be eating everything in sight, wandering around in traffic causing accidents and transporting ticks and fleas around.


If you can dart the fucker you can shoot it.
If they can dart it and spay it in less that 90 minutes, it can be shot, dressed out and cleaned, wrapped and in a freezer in 90.

Cute Overload

I hate to admit it but these little critters are just cute.
Bonus for me, they are Jackass Penguins.

An amusement park in South Korea is invoking the holiday spirit with a festive penguin parade.

A family of nine jackass, also known as African, penguins marched through the Everland amusement park in Yongin Wednesday dressed as Santa Claus, reindeer and Christmas trees.

The parade was led by the penguins' trainers, one dressed as Santa Claus and carrying a fennec fox, also dressed for the occasion.

The jackass penguins, named for the braying sound they make, are found exclusively off the coast of Africa.

It's What They Want Though

Whay I Can't Have A Bazooka

I wouldn't be able to stop myself.

Looking For .22LR Ammo?

Wiki Arms will find it for you.
Go to their page, set up an email alert account and they will start sending you deals right away.
You can specify whether or not you want any steel cased bullets or not and what price range you are looking for.

I had 3 alerts this morning alone for .22LR at .07 a round.
Yesterday I had one for .05 a round.

There is .22LR out there finally but some of it is ridiculously priced so this service they provide for free is a real time and money saver. I see there are some outfits out there still trying to get .36 cents a round,the bastards.

They find other sizes of ammo and gun parts too. The sellers they link to have just about any gun related item you can think of too.

Stripped cheapie AR lowers as cheap as $44.95.

Just trying to pass on a good thing here.


That's going to be expensive though.

NSA's collection of phone data could be unconstitutional, judge rules

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

I don't have time to say much about this except that it's about time.
I have to go to work.

By David G. Savage

December 16, 2013, 12:19 p.m.

WASHINGTON -- For the first time, a federal judge has struck down the National Security Agency’s once-secret policy of collecting the dialing records of all phone calls in the country, ruling that the mass data collection involving innocent Americans appears to violate the Constitution’s ban on unreasonable searches.

U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon, who was appointed to the federal district court in Washington by President George W. Bush, immediately stayed Monday’s ruling to give the government time to appeal. As a result, his ruling will have no immediate impact in stopping the massive data-collection effort.

Still, the ruling marked the government’s first full-on courtroom defeat in the controversy that erupted after former NSA analyst Edward Snowden revealed the scope of the agency’s program.

The ruling broke new legal ground by deciding that today’s computerized gathering of all dialing records represents a new threat to privacy that was not fully recognized in the past.

In 1979, the Supreme Court said that phone records -- unlike the content of phone calls -- were not protected under the 4th Amendment. The justices allowed police detectives to use a much more primitive technology -- a pen register -- to record the numbers a suspect dialed without a search warrant.

Today, by contrast, the NSA's computers can gather, store and sift untold millions of calls, and that changes the constitutional balance, Judge Leon wrote.

“The almost Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone meta-data of every telephone user in the United States is unlike anything that could have been conceived in 1979,” he wrote.

He also questioned whether the phone records were useful in fighting terrorism. “The government does not cite a single instance in which analysis of the NSA’s bulk data collection actually stopped an imminent attack,” Leon said.

Finally! One That Likes Candy.........

Who Is Watching The Watchers?

I consider this a badge of honor.

(Click to see it more clearly)

My fucking government has nothing better to do than monitor Blogs on the tax payer dime taking notes on who is talking about what.

Have some Jefferson, you assholes.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then.

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow too.

Ain't Love Grand?

An elderly couple is enjoying an anniversary dinner together in a small tavern, the husband leans over and asks his wife... "Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind this tavern where you leaned against the fence and I made love to you". "Yes" she says "I remember it well".

"Okay" he says "How about taking a stroll a round there again and we can do it for old times sake". "Oooooooh Henry, you devil, that sounds like a good idea" she answers.

There's a police officer sitting in the next booth listening to all this and having a chuckle to himself. He thinks I've got to see this - two old-timers having sex against a fence... I'll just keep an eye on them so there's no trouble. He follows them...

They walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support, aided by walking sticks. Finally they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence. The old lady lifts her skirt, takes her knickers down and the old man drops his trousers, she turns around and as she hangs on to the fence, the old man moves in, suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the watching policeman has ever seen.

They are bucking and jumping like eighteen-year-olds. This goes on for about forty minutes! She's yelling "Ohhhh, God" He's hanging on to her hips for dear life. This is the most athletic sex imaginable. Finally, they both collapse panting on the ground.

The policeman is amazed, he thinks he has learned something about life that he didn't know. After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on. The policeman, still watching thinks that was truly amazing, he was going like a train. I've got to ask him what his secret is.

As the couple pass, he says "That was something else! You must have been having sex for about forty minutes. How do you manage it? You must have had a fantastic life together... is there some sort of secret?

"No, there's no secret" the old man says "Fifty years ago that damn fence wasn't electric".

The Federal Police?!

Federal Judge Rules California's 10 Day Waiting Period "UnConstitutional".

That sound you just heard was Wirecutter cheering his head off.

This is big.
It's a huge win over the patently Anti Gun bastards in Kalifornia, especially that no good AG Kamala Harris.

The fact that a federal judge saw these laws for what they are -- baseless restraints on the exercise of a fundamental civil right -- is monumental," explained Gene Hoffman, Chairman of The Calguns Foundation. "California's waiting period laws for those who own guns is not Constitutional and this order really underlines the point."

In his order, Judge Ishii said that Harris has "not presented sufficient evidence to show that the [10-day waiting period laws] passes either intermediate or strict scrutiny."

About the laws being challenged in the case, named plaintiff Jeff Silvester of Hanford, California, said, "I have a license to carry a loaded firearm across the State. It is ridiculous that I have to wait another 10 days to pick up a new firearm when I'm standing there in the gun store lawfully carrying one the whole time."

"This is certainly an exciting development in Second Amendment case law," noted Brandon Combs, an individual plaintiff in the case and the Executive Director of The Calguns Foundation. "If our Constitution means what it says, then California's gun waiting period laws have to be overturned and law-abiding people must be allowed to exercise their rights without irrational infringements."

Regardless of the final decision at the district court, the case is virtually certain to end up at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and possibly even the United States Supreme Court.

It Shouldn't BE Normal, That's The Fucking Problem

Went with The Wife and one of her sisters to the Mall tonight to watch the new Hobbit movie.
Great movie in 3D, awesome visual effects, yadda yadda yadda.
Whilst circling the parking lot, during Christmas season no less, what do I see but one of these.

Right in the middle of the parking lot.

Pissed me off, of course.

I started bitching about living in a police state when my wife pipes up in a condescending tone and says, "it's just normal".

THAT pissed me off even more!
I told her, that's the fucking problem, it shouldn't BE normal!
It's like living in a fucking prison yard!
That is exactly how I felt too.
Like I was walking across a prison yard full of parked cars.


Then her sister pipes up with the old, "well what if a guy in a hockey mask carrying a gun is walking around?"

A true face palm moment.

There it is, conditioned to believe elevated armed police posts in public are "normal".

Not where I come from sister.

That's pretty much it for me.
I have been putting it off but if it's to the point I see armed police guard posts in the fucking parking lots around here, I'm gettin' a concealed carry permit or finding out why not.

This supposed to be a "Shall Issue" state.
I am going to find out.

Just A Little Push Please?

I Just Couldn't Pull The Trigger

My Email box is over flowing with goodies today.

H/T to Ben for this one.

Wouldn't Surprise Me

Sure it's parody but it wouldn't surprise me a bit to see they have found another way to give our hard earned tax money away.

More volunteers for the Free Shit Army.

President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping
legislation that will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans
With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by
advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition.

"Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive
necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said
California Sen. Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and allow People
of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation,
employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of
workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing."

In a Capitol Hill press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal
Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without
regard to performance. At the state government level, the Department of
Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons with No
Ability (63 percent).

Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level
positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real
responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.
Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to
guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The
legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a
significant number of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management
positions, and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that
agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to
make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for
example, discriminatory interview questions such as, "Do you have any skills
or experience that relate to this job?"

"As a non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have
something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a
lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich., due to her inability to
remember righty tighty, lefty loosey. "This new law should be real good for
people like me. I'll finally have job security." With the passage of this
bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a
light at the end of the tunnel.
Said Sen. Dick Durbin: "As a senator with no abilities, I believe the same
privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every
American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and
every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort
of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing so."

She Must Have Really Big Tits

On a bitterly cold winters morning a husband and wife were listening to the radio during breakfast.

They heard the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the Snow plows can get through."

So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through."

The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park." Then the electricity went out.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow plow can get through?"

Then with the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied, "Why don't you just leave the car in the garage this time."

I Love My Wife

Even when she starts to resemble this lady very strongly at times.

Of course, she gets that way because I share more than a few characteristics with this fellow.

Did I mention that I hate being sick yet?

Those Wonderful Christmas Traditions


If you've ever wondered where Traditions start, here's one for you.

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'

And thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Not very many people know this.

Getting Sick

I felt it hit about two hours before I got off work, all at once.
Burning sensation in my nose/sinus/ roof of my mouth. Roof of my mouth felt dry too.

By quitting time my ears felt like they were plugging up and I could feel the start of a sore throat.
Now, three hours later I can feel the lymph nodes along side my throat are swollen up, it's hard to swallow and painful, oh yeah, it's coming.

Fuck me, just what I need.

Without fail, every time I get a head cold the motherfucker heads straight to my chest and lingers for weeks.


I'm going to bed.
It may be a bit quiet tomorrow, depends on how hard my ass is getting kicked by an invisible bug and his buddies.

Update/Next day.

Ah, yeah.

I woke up a few minutes ago, fifteen minutes before I was supposed to leave for work.

That ain't gonna happen today.

Called the boss already.

I have a splitting headache, sore throat, stuffed up sinuses and feel like I have been through a cycle in a tumble dryer.
My lovely wife sprang into Mommy/Nurse mode and started running around gathering her concoctions and forcing them on me by the handful.

Bufferin, echinachia, Halls sore throat lozenges, Vitamin C, some other Horse pill sized fucking thing called Cold Ease and there is a bottle of generic Nyquil, my personal favorite, sitting here next to the bed.

I told her that when she goes to the store that I want some good old Plop Plop, Fizz Fizz Alka Seltzer Plus, some real aspirin and a small drum of real Nyquil.

That Nyquil is the shit man.
The little shot glass cup they have on the top goes flying immediately and I tip it up and take a couple of large swallows.

Blessed uninterrupted sleep follows along shortly after that.

I hate being sick, it sucks donkey balls.

Navel Gazing

Someone sent this to me in an Email.
I'm sure you can think of some other things like this.
You know, like why do they sell hot dogs in packages of 8 and the buns in packages of 10?

Can you cry under water?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to ‘put your two cents in’… but it’s only a ‘penny for your thoughts’? Where’s that extra penny going to?

Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change?
They’re going to see you naked anyway…

Why is ‘bra’ singular and ‘panties’ plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours?
They’re both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Why, Why, Why

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on ‘insufficient funds’ when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an ‘S’ in the word ‘lisp’?

If people evolved from apes,
why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses
are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that’s falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVORITE………
The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons are suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends — if they’re okay, then it’s you.

7 L.A. County sheriff's officials indicted in jails probe.
Los Angeles Times | December 9, 2013 | 11:32 AM

Seven Los Angeles County sheriff's officials have been indicted on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and giving false statements as part of the FBI's long-running investigation into misconduct in the county's jails, according to a court document obtained by the Los Angeles Times.

Federal authorities allege, according to the document, that the sheriff’s officials hampered the federal probe after the Sheriff's Department discovered that an inmate was working as a federal informant.

The officials moved the inmate -- identified only as AB in the indictment -- and changed his name, even altering the department's internal inmate database to falsely say he had been released, according to the indictment.

Next on the docket;

Los Angeles County Deputies accused of improper force expected in federal court.

Several Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies who have been the subject of excessive force accusations have been charged with criminal civil-rights violations, according to the federal court's website.

Among the deputies who are listed as being in custody and scheduled to appear in court are deputies Fernando Luviano and Pantamitr Zunggeemoge, who allegedly took part in a controversial force incident involving a jail visitor, Gabriel Carrillo.

Carrillo alleged he was beaten while handcuffed while visiting his brother at the Men's Central Jail in February 2011. Carrillo was initially charged with battery against the deputies following the incident but prosecutors abruptly dropped the case, telling a judge they were awaiting more reports from the Sheriff's Department.

Both Luviano and Zunggeemoge are charged with conspiracy against rights and deprivation of rights under color of law, according to the website.

Bryan Brunsting, a supervisor in the department's training unit, was also listed on the website as having been charged with civil-rights violations.

Now hark back to what happened last year when Chris Dorner went on his little walk about, when the LAPD was shooting everything and anything that moved.

I am seeing a pattern here.

This is breaking news so there is no link but apparently I'm not the only one who is seeing a pattern here.

18 Department officials indicted in jail misconduct probe.
Los Angeles Times | December 9, 2013 | 1:26 PM

Eighteen current or former Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials have been indicted in five separate criminal cases in connection with a wide-ranging investigation into allegations of abuse and misconduct inside the county's jails.

"Our investigation also found that these incidents did not take place in a vacuum - in fact, they demonstrated behavior that had become institutionalized," U.S. Atty. Andre Birotte Jr. said in a statement.

"The pattern of activity alleged in the obstruction of justice case shows how some members of the Sheriff's Department considered themselves to be above the law," he said. "Instead of cooperating with the federal investigation to ensure that corrupt law enforcement officers would be brought to justice, the defendants in this case are accused of taking affirmative steps designed to ensure that light would not shine on illegal conduct that violated basic constitutional rights."

The Gun Market Is Getting Back To Normal, Finally

After the insanity last Spring and Summer, the prices of firearms are finally coming back to reality.

I saw an ad yesterday at Big 5 for a Mosin Nagant that they were only asking $169.00 and a scope kit was another $65.00.

Last April at a gun show they were asking $650.00.

AR-15's that were almost impossible to find and were going upwards of $2,000 dollars?

Bushmaster C-15 223 16-inch Red Dot 30rd .

Braztech/Rossi Wizard 223REM 23 inch BL W


I have even seen ammo being advertised by the thousand round lot finally.

I actually found a hundred rounds of .22LR at Bi Mart the other day, on the shelf!

That poor lady that stocks the ammo down there has been getting almost assaulted by groups of guys with their hands sticking out in her face the minute she rolls out a case of .22 LR.

I jokingly told her she should throw out some pork chops as a distraction so she could actually get behind the counter with it for some self protection.

Now would be a very good time to take advantage of some of the deals going on out there because you know damn good and well that the gun grabbers have shit lined up in the pipe waiting to spring on us gun enthusiasts.

Dirty sonsabitches anyway.

That's Got Trouble Written All Over It

Trouble is my middle name, how convenient.

Obama Wants Corporations To Have The Same Powers As Sovereign Nations

The Supreme Court ruling that corporations are people too didn't go far enough apparently.

Go read this Huffpo piece saying that the US government is demanding extraordinary concessions for corporations on a wide range of issues around the world.

It is a jaw dropping list of demands that affect everything from oil drilling, the banking rules around the world and the pharmaceutical companies wanting to be able to charge whatever they want with basically no limits on their "intellectual properties".

What it is, is a naked power grab that the US Chamber of Commerce is backing and the Obama administration isn't taking NO for an answer.

One more play in The End Game.

The documents that Huffpo got their grubby mitts on were redacted and they didn't come from a source in the U.S., which means that no one here wants this information to be made public. Even Congress has been told to keep their mouths shut about it.

Never a good sign.

Mind boggling Mob tactics backed by the full faith and power of the United States Government.

This makes NAFTA look like an afternoon social.

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration appears to have almost no international support for controversial new trade standards that would grant radical new political powers to corporations, increase the cost of prescription medications and restrict bank regulation, according to two internal memos obtained by The Huffington Post.


The Obama administration has been leading negotiations on the international trade accord since 2010. The countries involved in the talks include Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.

One of the most controversial provisions in the talks includes new corporate empowerment language insisted upon by the U.S. government, which would allow foreign companies to challenge laws or regulations in a privately run international court. Under World Trade Organization treaties, this political power to contest government law is reserved for sovereign nations. The U.S. has endorsed some corporate political powers in prior trade agreements, including the North American Free Trade Agreement, but the scope of what laws can be challenged appears to be much broader in TPP negotiations.

Under NAFTA, companies including Exxon Mobil, Dow Chemical and Eli Lilly have attempted to overrule Canadian regulations on offshore oil drilling, fracking, pesticides, drug patents and other issues. Companies could challenge an even broader array of rules under the TPP language.

My emphasis.
Make the time , go read the rest of this bullshit.

State Of Mind

Stand up, you know what it means
Wake up, time to live your dreams

Down by,
Law and they can't hold you
Dictate and control you
Hold onto your ideas
Down by,
Law and no one owns you
And all the shit they've thrown you
Pay back is a real bitch.

Be All, End All, with lyrics.

By Anthrax.

There ain't no screaming, you can hear and understand the words and this is a great fuckin' tune! It's almost out of character for these guys, I've never heard anything else like this from them. I bought the album way the hell back when just for this one song.

Death Of The Old Cow

A big limo is driving down a dark country road late at night when suddenly a very old cow appears in the middle of the road on a curve.

The driver doesn't have time to stop and slams into the cow, killing it instantly.

The woman in the back seat - in her usual abrasive manner, says to the chauffeur,

"You get out and check on that poor cow since you were driving."

So the chauffeur gets out, checks, and reports that the animal is dead but it appeared to be very old.

Well, says the woman, "You were driving, so you go and tell the farmer in that lighted farmhouse over there"

Two hours later the chauffeur returns totally inebriated, a full belly, his hair ruffled, with a big grin on his face.

"My God, What Happened to You?" asks the woman.

The chauffeur replies, "When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of single malt scotch, the wife gave me a meal fit for a king, and the daughter made love to me."

"What on earth did you say?" asks the woman.

Well, I just knocked on the door..........and when it opened I said to them,

"I'm Dianne Feinstein's chauffeur, and I've just killed the old cow."

The ACLU Is Trying Back Door Pressure To Get Telecoms To Release NSA Spying Info

Which while a good idea in my playbook, is already facing opposition from those Government lackeys at AT&T.

Someone needs a good slap upside the head here.

BTW, this isn't something you are going to hear about in the media.

This is from a Email blast that I got.

BIG NEWS: We just did something that we’ve rarely done in nearly a century of ACLU history—to ramp up our efforts against massive NSA spying, we took the fight for civil liberties into the corporate boardroom.

The ACLU office in San Francisco, along with a coalition of major investors, filed shareholder proposals with AT&T and Verizon calling on both companies to reveal what customer information they hand over to U.S. or foreign governments and how often.

But we just got word that AT&T is trying to dodge the shareholder proposal by filing an objection with SEC regulators—so we need to act fast to add consumer pressure to all this heat from investors.

We’re working with our friends at SumOfUs to rally thousands of AT&T and Verizon customers and potential customers and prove to these giant telcos that their silence is putting their public image and bottom line at risk.

Let’s stand with AT&T and Verizon shareholders: Sign the petition calling on the telcos to come clean about how they share our private data.

Other companies, like Google, Apple and Microsoft, have issued transparency reports about government demands for our data and have called on Congress to lift gag orders so they can be even more transparent. But our telephone companies have been downright defiant about telling us what they’re doing with our private information.

Recently, Verizon executive John Stratton dismissed our legitimate privacy concerns and mocked other companies’ efforts to improve transparency, saying those companies wanted to “grandstand a bit, and wave their arms and protest loudly so as not to offend the sensibilities of their customers.”

Well Mr. Stratton, we happen to think it’s about time the telcos get more concerned about the ‘sensibilities’ of customers. In case you haven’t noticed, many of us aren’t too happy with our private data being handed over in secret to the government.

Let’s make sure Verizon and AT&T executives hear us loud and clear: Sign the petition calling on telcos to issue transparency reports now.

Every day, more and more details emerge about how massive the government surveillance state has become. In the fight to roll it back, we’ve made progress in Congress and we just made oral arguments in federal court for our case ACLU v. Clapper.

But we can't fight what we don't know about, which is why we need our phone companies to come clean.

Corporations care about one thing—their bottom line. With this action, now's our chance to let AT&T and Verizon know that if they don't step up, it's going to cost them investors and customers in a big way.
