Memorial Day 2016 Veteran Style, Rolling Thunder

As we pay tribute today to the missing and fallen veterans this country has sacrificed in the name of Empire, take a moment and remind yourself of just how many veterans there are in this country because it is not a small demographic.
A few hundred thousand of them went to the nations capitol earlier to make that point crystal clear.

Yeah, Trump showed up to weasel in and take advantage of the crowds but he is not the story here and never will be.

These are solid Americans, the kind of people who make this the greatest country on the face of the planet.

Louisiana Lawmaker Calls The Declaration of Independence Racist

Blink Blink.
You have GOT, to be shitting me.



Louisiana lawmaker labels Declaration of Independence racist in debate


The Declaration of Independence came under attack from an unlikely quarter—a state legislator.

Louisiana lawmaker Barbara Norton (D-Shreveport), argued that America’s founding document was racist during debate on a bill requiring public school students in the state to recite the Declaration of Independence daily, Fox & Friends reported Saturday.


“For the Declaration of Independence only Caucasians (were) free,” Norton, who is black, said Wednesday during the debate on the floor of the Louisiana House of Representatives. “And for you to bring a bill to require that our children will recite the Declaration of Independence I think it’s a little bit unfair.”

Rep. Valarie Hodges (R-Denham Springs) shelved the bill before lawmakers could vote on the proposal, which she sponsored. The measure would have required public school students in fourth through sixth grade to recite a passage from the Declaration of Independence.

Norton and Pat Smith (D-Baton Rouge) told Hodges that children shouldn’t have to recite words written at a time when slavery was prevalent, reading the document was used to bar blacks from voting at polling places and equality wasn’t extended to all people.

“Back in 1776 our forefathers who wrote the Declaration of Independence, I don’t believe they had any idea or that they thought for a moment that America would be as diverse as it is today,” Norton told KTAL-TV.





She ain't havin' none of that honey, it was written back when they had slaves and shit so it's a racist document.


Right.
Jump that shark, Lady Democrat.

This woman is so clueless that she doesn't realize she wouldn't even be able to voice her opinion on the matter, let alone have the job she does, without it.







Who Taught You How To Hate?


Disturbed, even the name of the band resonates with me.

I love these guys and have been digging this tune for a while now.
Turn it way the hell up and enjoy it yourself.

Facebook Is Now Tracking You Even If You Don't Have An Account To Target You With Advertising

Because I haven't said it yet today anyway,


Rotten sonsabitches.

Now though, they are really going to piss a LOT of people off.


Facebook will now track you even if you're not a Facebook user


It's official: there's nowhere to hide.
Companies like Facebook and Google are happy to offer you their services for free, but free always has a cost on the internet. Advertising pays the bills, and these big companies separate themselves from the pack by serving up ads that are better targeted than other networks. How do they target so well? By tracking you as you make your way across the web and building a profile that helps determine which ads you're most likely to click.
Some people don't want to be tracked by Facebook, so they don't register an account with the site. But thanks to some major changes rolling out now, on one will be able to hide from Facebook tracking.
Oh yes, there is a way and we will get to that shortly.

As The Wall Street Journal noted on Friday morning, Facebook's off-site ads will now be shown to people who are not registered Facebook users. That also means webgoers without Facebook accounts will now be tracked by Facebook so that the ads they're served will be better targeted to their tastes.
By altering the code websites use to display Facebook widgets such as "Like" buttons, Facebook can track a user across most or even all of the web pages he or she visits. That information is then stored and analyzed by Facebook so that advertisements served by Audience Network partners are more likely to be relevant to these users.
"Our buttons and plugins send over basic information about users' browsing sessions. For non-Facebook members, previously we didn't use it. Now we'll use it to better understand how to target those people," Andrew Bosworth, vice president of Facebook's ads and business platform, told WSJ.

Now then, the article goes on and gives you a link to another article that explains VPN's a bit and has a couple links to some free ones.

The Opera web browser has one built right in.

There is a link there also to get a free, unlimited use VPN, to use for Google's Chrome.

One that I was using with the Pale Moon browser is called Ghostery

Pale Moon is an off shoot of Firefox and works very similar.

I used it for a long time, right up until tonight as a matter of fact.

Something went haywire with it though and it kept going unresponsive on me constantly for the last few weeks so I am using Chrome right at the moment, it was the default browser in this Laptop when I got it.

I'm real leery about stuff associated with Google anymore though.
As you probably know, Google has been reading all your Emails and watching your web browsing for years now and targeting advertisements at you from their contents.

They are all turning into stalkers but this advertising bullshit has gotten completely out of hand in my opinion.

Let my give you fuckers at Google and Facebook a little perspective from my side of the screen.

I work for a living, hard, physical labor.

When I get online to check the news, maybe watch a couple videos or listen to some music, I DO NOT WANT TO GET BOMBARDED WITH ADVERTISING CONSTANTLY.

I want to relax!

It's gotten so bad that even if you "X" out of some fucking autoplay pop up advertisement so you can see what the hell you went there to see in the first place, another one pops right the fuck up unbidden behind it!

You wind up spending your time dodging advertisements and not seeing what it was you wanted in the first place. And some of these ads these days are a real pain in the ass to figure out how to get rid of  too.

YouTube is really bad about this. Their fucking ads actually block what you are trying to watch at the bottom and when you close the damn thing, another one pops right the fuck back up again!

As with everything else in this world, this overreach is going to have repercussions.
This just might blow up in their facebooks.

People are funny about things and this just may be the thing that starts a counter movement to shut a bunch of this stuff right back off.
It didn't used to be this way but money talks and if there is one thin dime out there gathering dust in someones pocket, these people want it.

Trump Locks Up Enough Delegates For Republican Nomination

WHEEEEEeeee!
Let the fun begin.

It is rumored that upon hearing this news that Post Turtle ran into the nearest closet clutching his pearls and sobbing uncontrollably.


Fucking cunt.

MSM Not Reporting That Anonymous Has Gone After The New York Stock Exchange, World Bank, The Fed, and Vatican

It wasn't just the ones in the headline either, Anonymous has been very, very, busy going after financial institutions world wide with DDOS attacks.

Gee what a fucking surprise, the Lame Stream Media not reporting somebody going after Big Money finally.
What's the matter you pussies?
Someone up the food chain tell you to keep your mouths shut did they?
Journalism and the Free Press can be added to a long list of things that used to be a source of pride in this country that are dead and gone.

Bought and Paid For, every last one of them.

You people suck.

Anonymous Hits New York Stock Exchange, World Bank, The Fed, and Vatican — Total Media Blackout

 

 


By Jay Syrmopoulos
Amidst a global media blackout of Anonymous’ ongoing worldwide attacks on the “corrupt banking cartels,” the hacking collective has now taken down some of the most prestigious institutions in global governance. OpIcarus has recently taken offline the World Bank, the New York Stock Exchange, five U.S. Federal Reserve Banks and the Vatican.



After announcing a global call to arms against the “corrupt global banking cartel,” the hacker collective, known as Anonymous, in conjunction with Ghost Squad Hackers, have taken over 30 central banks offline, including striking many targets at the heart of the Western imperialist empire.

Operation Icarus was relaunched in conjunction with a video release announcing the beginning of a “30-day campaign against central bank sites across the world.” Since that time, the scope and magnitude of the attacks have increased exponentially, with Anonymous, Ghost Squad Hackers, a number of Sec groups and BannedOffline coordinating attacks — each focusing on separate financial institutions in an effort to maximize the number of targets hit.

In a previous interview with the Free Thought Project, an Anonymous representative clarified that the operation is in no way intended to impact individuals’ accounts held within the banks, explaining that OpIcarus is directed solely at the 1% perpetuating injustice:

We would just like to make it very clear that all targets of #OpIcarus have been Rothschild and BIS central owned banks. In fact most of the targets so far such as Guernsey, Cyprus, Panama, Jordan, British Virgin Isles, etc are in the top 10 places of tax havens for the elite. No on-line consumer accounts were harmed, no ATM’s were blocked and no personal client data was leaked. This has been a protest against the Central Banks and the 1% — no innocent or poor people were harmed.
Snip

In the world of high finance, time is money and every minute that a bank is forced offline it is losing potential revenue, which in turn hurts the bottom line of those that support the imperial war machine. Thus far, all targeted banks have refused to comment on the damage inflicted by the continuous cyber attacks.

Make no mistake that this operation has already been extremely effective — evolving and growing rapidly. The fact that global corporate media is refusing to report on these numerous high-profile attacks is indicative of the fear the 1% have of OpIcarus garnering massive public support. The attempt to conceal the scope and breadth of this operation from public purview reveals the visceral fear the elite harbor toward those they prey upon. It seems the only thing the ruling class can do now is attempt to conceal and suppress the information about what’s transpiring in hopes of keeping the populace ignorant
.

My bold.
There is more at this link.

Electronic torches and pitchforks?
Why not.

The world wide plundering spree that these financial institutions have been on for the last few centuries can not go on forever. Even with the blessings of every major government in the world, nothing lasts forever and when it does come time for it to stop, it is going to be spectacular and horrifying at the same time to watch.

Google's Paris headquarters Raided In Tax Evason Inquiry

I'm sure Google has absolutely nothing to hide from the government., /s.

Investigators raid Google Paris HQ in tax evasion inquiry


Dozens of French police raided Google's (GOOGL.O) Paris headquarters on Tuesday, escalating an investigation into the digital giant on suspicion of tax evasion.

Google, which said it was fully complying with French law, is under pressure across Europe from public opinion and governments angry at the way multinationals exploit their presence around the world to minimize the tax they pay.

Investigators from the financial prosecutors office and France's central office against corruption and tax fraud, accompanied by 25 IT specialists, took part in the raid.

"The investigation aims to verify whether Google Ireland Ltd has a permanent base in France and if, by not declaring parts of its activities carried out in France, it failed its fiscal obligations, including on corporate tax and value added tax," the prosecutor's office said in statement.

Google, now part of Alphabet Inc, pays little tax in most European countries because it reports almost all sales in Ireland. This is possible thanks to a loophole in international tax law but it hinges on staff in Dublin concluding all sales contracts.

If staff in countries like France finalize contracts with local clients, then the company would be obliged to report the revenues nationally and pay taxes in each country.

Al Verney, a spokesman for Google in Europe, said in an email: "We are cooperating with the authorities to answer their questions. We comply fully with French law."

It isn't like Google doesn't have enough revenue to buy their way out of this even if they are found guilty.
Their yearly profits are as much as the GDP of a small country anyway.

I've Seen One Even Better


Yep, I saw one that beat that once.
Driving down a 4 lane highway with those concrete barriers down the middle, at the end of a straightaway over half a mile long just outside of Camas Washington, there sat a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo with all 4 wheels off the ground, straddling one of those barriers, lengthwise!!
It was perfectly centered and balanced like someone had picked it up and set it there.

I have absolutely no idea how the idiot managed to do it but there it was. There were two cop cars and a wrecker sitting there too with everybody standing around looking at the damn thing.

I often wonder how in the hell they ever got that thing down without tearing the shit out of it.

It's All About Teamwork

This took a lot of planning, coordination and balls.

Lots of balls.

Convenience store ATM heist sees ¥1.4 billion stolen in two hours across Japan

Kyodo
A total of ¥1.4 billion in cash was stolen from some 1,400 convenience store ATMs across the nation in the space of two hours earlier this month, investigative sources said Sunday.
Police suspect the cash was withdrawn simultaneously using counterfeit credit cards containing account information leaked from a South African bank.
Investigators now suspect a large-scale international crime organization was involved. Police investigators will work with South African authorities through Interpol to probe the incident, including how credit card information was leaked, the sources said.
The theft took place on the morning of May 15 in Tokyo and 16 other prefectures, and police believe more than 100 people might have worked together to execute the grand theft.
In each of the approximately 14,000 transactions, the maximum amount of ¥100,000 was withdrawn from Seven Bank ATMs using the fake credit cards, according to the sources.
ATM transaction data suggests that information from 1,600 credit cards issued by a South African bank was used, the sources said.
Police are now checking images taken by security cameras in the stores to identify those who withdrew the money.
In 2012 and 2013, a total of ¥4.5 billion was withdrawn with forged credit cards from financial institutions in more than 20 countries, including Japan.
Japanese police have put suspects belonging to a Malaysian group on an international wanted list.

Killaz!

Fucking cats are, these two in particular, they work as a team.


They are sisters. the two from the last batch born under the house at the old place that the wife just haaaaaad to keep.

Little assholes is what they are.

The black one is a pretty little cat but they are both spoiled fucking rotten and whine incessantly to either come in the house or go outside,or both, at the same damn time.
They throw a fit if you don't jump right the fuck up too. Loudly.

Like I said, little assholes. They are also prolific little hunters.
The front porch had two dead shrews on it yesterday, I just got woke up by yet another one of these yowling motherfucking cats around here and went out back to have a smoke and here they are, fucking with a mouse that ain't dead yet.
The yowling was coming from another serious asshole cat because that is his gimmick. He is a very loud asshole also, loud enough to wake you up in the bedroom from across the house at night.
He could see these other two murderous felines right out the sliding door fucking with the mouse and couldn't stand it.

I couldn't see what the hell was going on when I first went out there because the other two were hunched over the poor fucking thing at the moment.

The second I opened the door, the big black yowling sonofabitch dived past me and snatched up the mouse and started to turn around and head back in the house with it!

Fuuuuck, YOU Kitty!

I yelled at the sonofabitch and he dropped it, that also startled the the two and they all three rocketed past me back into the house and the food bowl.

I don't know how bad the little mouse is but I'm not seeing a bunch of blood, his tail is looking a little ragged though.

He ran into the corner of the cement pad and the foundation shivering convulsively, you can see that black and white one with it's nose buried in the corner after I got a stick and made the mouse crawl up on it . I carried him over and let him go underneath the wooden deck.It was quite near scared to death.

Them two cats were all over that corner for a while after I let them back out hunting for the fucking thing. Both of those pictures were taken while they were going back and forth looking for that mouse again.

They stay out all night killing shit, pretty much every night lately.

That would be small furry critter number six here in the last week and a half as far as I know.

The little bastards don't stand a chance around here with these two teaming up like that.

It's good they are keeping the rodent population in check, I just wish they would find someplace else to leave the little corpses instead of right in front of the doors.

Updated;
Instead of going back to sleep like I should have, I made some coffee. There is a bunch of activity going on around here later.
After I got a cup I went back outside to enjoy it and have another smoke while there is still some peace and quiet around here.
Bigger than shit, here's those two cats hunched over the edge of the concrete, pawing at something again.
The little fuckers went back out there and found that damn mouse again!

I gave up, not your day mouse.
Jeeze,them two cats have amazing sniffers on them,and they are relentless.

Gun Concealment Furniture Goes Main Stream.

Remember this guy?
Michigan inventor Frank Marshall built a headboard that enables anyone lying on the bed to go from dream to draw in one quick motion - provided the built-in safety latch is unlocked.

Dubbed The Gun Bed, Marshall's creation hides a 12-gauge shotgun behind a spring-loaded panel that, when pressed, drops the gun in the owner's hands.

“It has no place to go but your hands,” Marshall said.


People liked that so much entire businesses have sprung up building customized furniture to hide weapons in plain sight.

Furniture firepower: Gun sales drive specialty 'concealment' craze


Rising gun sales have triggered a new trend in furniture fashion -- coffee tables, cabinets, headboards and hutches with secret compartments for firearms.

'Gun concealment furniture' sales, once the province of solitary craftsmen making custom goods have gone mainstream, allowing firearms owners to maintain easy in-home access to hidden handguns and rifles.

“There are a lot of people who don’t want a big iron safe,” said Dan Ingram, owner of NJ Concealment Furniture, based in Hampton, N.J. “There are a lot of people who don’t even have room for one, but they still need someplace to safely store their guns.”

Ingram, a longtime cabinet maker, started building the special furniture four years ago after getting inspiration from the online gun community.

“At the time, I was on a lot of online gun forums and there was a constant complaint,” he said. “People wanted something with quick access when they needed their weapons to keep their homes safe which is why they bought the guns in the first place.


Furniture maker Dan Ingram says more people are looking for alternatives for storing firearms in the home. (NJconceal.com)

Ingram’s first design was a simple nightstand with a side compartment to hold a pistol. From there, he began designing and fabricating other items, such as wall shelves, coat racks, desks and hutches. Soon the specialty line became the company mission.

“I eventually closed my main cabinetry business,” he said, adding that he has seen more and more interest in his products as gun sales have gone up.
Major outdoor outfitters including Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops sell ottomans, benches and other furniture with built-in, locking gun compartments. Smaller furniture companies including Stealth Furniture, Secret Compartment Furniture and Heracles Research also specialize in gun concealment furniture.

Chicago Is A War Zone But You Won't Hear About It From The MSM.



There are more shootings in Chicago in a week than on some battle fields around the world.

This headline doesn't tell the whole story, this toll they are reporting are the results from twenty four hours!!

2 dead, 18 wounded in Chicago shootings 

 

 


Two men have been killed and at least 18 other people, including boys ages 12 and 15, have been wounded in shootings in Chicago since midmorning Wednesday, police said.

In the latest fatal shooting, two people were shot on the 5800 block of West Augusta Boulevard in the Austin neighborhood, said Officer Thomas Sweeney, a police spokesman.

In that 5:28 p.m. attack, a 22-year-old man was shot in the wrist and in the chest and was taken to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, said Sweeney. A 21-year-old man who also was hurt in the shooting managed to get himself to West Suburban Medical Center, where he was in good condition with a gunshot wound to his finger and arm, said Sweeney.

The two men were outside when a vehicle pulled up and shot at them, said Sweeney.


Remember hearing how bad the Mobsters were back in the 1930's ?

The numbers we are seeing here and now makes them look like school children.
Just to pound the point home again and again, Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and has been run by the Democrat leaning side of the scale for decades.

What should really stand out here is that you never, and I mean never, hear one syllable about all these deaths and violence in Chicago from the MSM.

They go out of their way to ignore this.

The MSM will find the lamest puff piece on the wire and do a full piece on it if it is a slow news day before they even mention anything happening in Chicago.

How much do you want to bet that as soon as there isn't a Democratic President in office that there will be an avalanche of outrage 24/7 all at once about all these shootings and demands that something be done?

Whooooooooo Are You, WhoWho, WhoWho?

The Wifely Unit and I got to go see a bit of history be made last night.
The Who came to Portland as part of their 50 year tour and we got to go see them.
You can pretty much guarantee that will be the last time they ever play here.


I saw them here back in 82 but that was when I was drunk, stoned and fucked up in a big way.
My Brothers and cousins and I were off to the far right of the stage and up just a couple rows for that one. I couldn't see Pete Townsend for shit because there was a giant stack of amplifiers blocking my view of him but we were close enough to smell the weed he was smoking.
I came within a whisker of getting thrown out of that concert for being a rowdy fucker because I was pretty much blasted and that's what you did at Who concerts back then.

This time around I was as sober as a Church Mouse so I might well be able to remember it better plus we got some half way decent video from my wife's phone camera. Mine turned out like shit.

I spent a bit too much money on the souvenir T shirts but this was the last chance for the real deal concert stuff that will be a part of history someday.
I even bought a poster with the schedule on it. It's printed on pretty thick paper and I am going to frame it so it doesn't get fucked up. There was also some dude there in the front row who was there for his 100th Who concert.

That's a fan, boys.

It was, to put it mildly, way better than I expected it to be, you have to remember that Pete Townsend is going to be 71 years old here real quick. It was an excellent show and I only wish it could have went on longer.

Watch this clip from the same tour late last year in Texas, though keep an eye on these two old dudes towards the end, then remember how old they are.
I'd say they are doing pretty well.

Something Tells Me It's Quick


When I saw this picture it reminded me of a guy back when I was in High school who stuffed a High Performance Porsche engine in a Bug and went Camaro hunting.

Back in my last year of High school, these were the Bad Boy Toys,


I knew a guy who lived down the street and he bought one of them. The thing was pretty mean right out of the box but he ordered his with the optional Small Block 350 and it came with a 4 speed stick.

Back then there were all kinds of quick Bolt On goodies you could throw on a Chevy 305 to quickly make more Horsepower that didn't cost an arm and a leg. That's not a typo, the majority of those old Chevy's of that era came with a 305 CID V-8 and some aftermarket 350 goodies were Bolt Ons for the 305 too. Stuff like 4 barrel carbs, intake manifolds, headers and High Performance ignition systems.The 305 had a different block and pistons but most of the parts would theoretically swap. The 305 heads didn't breathe well though and the 350 heads weren't a viable quick swap.


Across the Bay from North Bend Oregon is a dike road that goes across the North side of the bay that leads to the Sand Dunes and there used to be a Paper Mill out on what they called HorsFall Road on the North side of the bay. My Paternal Grandfather actually worked there for a while, it's been torn down since. The road that went past the mill was pretty much straight as an arrow for a good quarter mile and that was the local Dragstrip for many, many years because it was so straight and it was well out of town with only one way in or out , that being the dike road.


This guy and his Porsche powered Bug would go out there on Saturday nights after cruising the Gut downtown, which was actually Highway 101 that went through town. He would cruise the Gut trying to goad these guys with Camaro's into heading out and racing Title for Title, called Pink Slip racing.

The last I ever heard about that guy was that he had amassed a stable of five of those Camaro's before everyone wised up and refused to race him anymore.Coos Bay/North Bend isn't that big of a community.

It just goes to show that looks can be deceiving, that Bug he had clocked in at 114 MPH in the quarter mile way the hell back in 1979. It was fast.

The Pussification Of America Through Language Has Been Going On For Years.

How long has my hero been gone now, 8 years?

George Carlin was warning us about the pussification of this country over a decade ago at least.
It started with language.
Words you couldn't say anymore in "polite society".

Look at how far down the drain we have gone since then.
"Trigger Warnings", "Safe Spaces", "Micro Aggression". The Feminization of our young men.
This country is full of full on fucking pussies now.

We were warned, God I miss this guy.

They Were Testing The New Prototype Camaro Z-28

Until they hit a guard rail.
Skip to 1:48 for that.


It's not a bad looking rig but I'm not overly impressed with the looks of it.
The new fad of all these cars having this huge phony assed off color grille in them just doesn't work for me and that spoiler could use some serious help.
I would like to think the thing hauls ass though if they seriously want to live up to the name.

The Realities Of Economic Collapse Happening In Venezuela Right Now.

People think this could never happen here in the land of plenty.

Sure it can,when the trucks stop rolling, this is what you can look forward to.

Hungry Venezuelans Hunt Dogs, Cats, Pigeons as Food Runs Out


Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.

Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger.

Don't miss that bit of irony there, they have Twitter but no food.

The crisis in Venezuela is worsening everyday due in part to shortages reaching 70 percent. This to go along with the world’s highest level of inflation.

The population’s desperation has begun to show, with looting and robberies for food increasing all the time. This Sunday, May 1, six Venezuelan military officials were arrested for stealing goats to ease their hunger, as there was no food at the Fort Manaure military base.



The week before, various regions of the country saw widespread looting of shopping malls, pharmacies, supermarkets and food trucks, all while people chanted “we are hungry.”

The Venezuelan Chamber of Food (Cavidea) said many businesses only have 15 days worth of inventory. Production has been effected as a result of a shortage of raw materials, as well as exhausted national and international supply resources.

This is the result of Socialism and the a government wholly dependent on oil for it's income, when the price of oil has dropped like a hot rock in the last year.

There is no light at the end of the tunnel here and you can start looking any day now for calls for the international community to start calling it a crisis and asking to send aid by the boat load.


You can also start expecting calls for the overthrow of their government any day now.

The Barnhardt Axiom Applies To All Politicians


I had heard of Ann Bernhardt a few times, read some of her stuff and have to say the lady is pretty damn sharp.

I found mention of The Bernhardt Axiom over at WRSA a while back and had kind of let it sink to the back of my mind. I knew what it was , it's just something that seems so damn obvious once it's been pointed out to you because your gut has been telling it to you for years without it ever having come to the front of your mind so that you kind of go, OH YEAH!
Well, now you have a name for that gut feeling.

THE BARNHARDT AXIOM:

The fact that a given person is holding or seeking high-level public office is, in and of itself, proof that said person is morally and/or psychologically UNFIT to hold public office.



Think about some of these clowns we have seen running for office the last few elections and then nod your head.
Painfully obvious now, isn't it?

Well, she had a post clear back in December addressing this concerning Paul Ryan and the Rogue Force personified himself, Mr. Donald Trump that I must have missed earlier but she nailed it.

Yeeaah. You know how you coulda seen YEARS IN ADVANCE the fact that Paul Ryan is a lying psychopath who would gleefully assrape his own grandmother, or an entire planet of grandmothers, for a nickel?
The Barnhardt Axiom.
You realize this applies every bit as strongly to Trump too, right?  Tell me you are not so stupid as to believe for one second that Trump would actually do ANY of the things he is talking about. He’s just smart enough to know what y’all want to hear, and is saying it.  You know how I know that Trump will never follow through on anything he is saying?
BECAUSE. HE. IS. RUNNING. FOR. POLITICAL. OFFICE. IN. A. NATION. THAT NO. LONGER. EXISTS.
Remember, the only thing that actually WANTS to be in a cesspit is a PIECE OF SHIT.

So everybody that's all excited about Trump and what is falling out of his mouth?

I want you to remember three fucking words here.

HOPE AND CHANGE.......

I'll be honest here, I think Hillary Clinton would finish this country. I really do.
It's already just a marketing instrument, the country we were born in doesn't exist anymore but she would destroy even the illusion that they find so useful.

America, Land Of The Free......shit.

So you pretty much have the same choice we get every four years, two evils.

The only difference this time is one of those evils is not the vetted, tamed and properly restrained career politician candidate that the political elites in this country want so badly.

This time we have a Free Agent with self control issues who is not yet beholden to the political masters tending to the business of those who really do run this country.

That scares the shit out of the PTB.

It should scare the shit out of you too.

I have heard exactly Jack Fucking Shit from this guy that I won't be able to point to in a year and ask, what happened with that?

Gonna build a wall, gonna Make America Great Again.

Seriously?

There are 320,000,000 million people in this country, give or take a few million illegals,not to mention we control a MASSIVE empire that wraps all the way around the planet, have treaties, vendettas and general fuckery going on 24/7/365.
The biggest military the world has ever seen and thousands of interests to protect. One third of the population doesn't have a fucking job and the rest of us are getting worked to death and getting paid stagnant wages for it that they take a third of right off the top to keep the fucking doors open on this enterprise.

Now think about all that and then take a serious fucking look at what we have for a choice of who we want to run this whole show.

Grandma Cankles, the lyingest career politician/criminal mastermind you could possibly imagine,


or....


Bubba Trump.


We are so fucked.

Happy Mothers Day Ladies

It's kind of hard to believe but I do know of a couple of ladies at least who do read this blog because of the comments they leave.

They are intelligent too.
It kind of surprises me because I can be a bit crude to put it mildly but I'm not stupid either.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank them and all the Moms out there, without whom none of us would be here.

So just this once I'll post a little Beefcake in their honor.

Have some Clint Walker ladies and I thank you for stopping by my humble little corner of the web.

She's Old EnoughTo Vote Now!

This is Bitsy, she used to be my Parents cat and we wound up with her.
She recently turned 18 years old as near as anyone can tell. They got her after she was full grown, she just wandered into the yard one day and stayed.


I caught her out back soaking up some sun, she's a good cat, loves to lay across my legs when I am sitting in the recliner and will actually use her front paw to try and pry my legs apart if I happen to have my ankles crossed so she can get comfortable.

She was de-clawed long ago and is as mellow as you could ever want a cat to be.

Is Hillary Going To Skate On The Email Investigation?

Would anyone be surprised if she did?
I sure as hell wouldn't be.


Officials: Scant evidence that Clinton had malicious intent in handling of emails

 



By Matt Zapotosky May 5 at 3:36 PM

Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

FBI agents on the case have been joined by federal prosecutors from the same office that successfully prosecuted 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui — and who would handle any Edward Snowden case, should he ever return to the country, according to the U.S. officials familiar with the matter. And in recent weeks, prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Virginia and their FBI counterparts have been interviewing top Clinton aides as they seek to bring the case to a close.

CNN reported Thursday that longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin was among those interviewed. A lawyer for Abedin did not immediately return an email seeking comment.

[How Clinton’s email scandal took root]

The involvement of the U.S. Attorney’s Office is not indicative that charges are imminent or even likely. One official said prosecutors are wrestling with the question of whether Clinton intended to violate the rules, and so far, the evidence seemed to indicate she did not.

How many times have I seen in the last three or four months that there were multiple instances of Classified, Top Secret and Beyond Top Secret emails found on her server?

But there's no intent there so she is free to go?

That's exactly what this article is trying to say.

There's just that little part in there saying that Federal Prosecutors have now joined the FBI in this investigation.

That doesn't sound to me like anyone is just going to skate.

So what's it gonna be here fellas?

You know damn good and well I would love to see that woman squirming in her chair under cross examination.

A nice Frog March out of the courtroom in handcuffs would be the cherry on top.

It's hard to say at this point, the FEEBs have their asses on the line here and they know it.

They are holding their cards pretty close to their vest at this point because like someone recently said, You only get one shot at The Queen.

I hope they make that shot count.

In Case The Facts Have Escaped You, The Electoral College Votes For Who Gets To Be President

The Electoral College is populated by these so called Delegates you keep hearing about. These Delegates are who you vote for.
The procedure for electing the President and Vice President are laid out in the Twelfth Amendment.
Selection

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution requires each state legislature to determine how electors for the state are to be chosen, but it disqualifies any person holding a federal office, either elected or appointed, from being an elector.[25] Under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment, any person who has sworn an oath to support the United States Constitution in order to hold either a state or federal office, and later rebelled against the United States, is disqualified from being an elector. However, the Congress may remove this disqualification by a two-thirds vote in each House.

Candidates for elector are nominated by their state political parties
in the months prior to Election Day. In some states, the electors are nominated in primaries, the same way that other candidates are nominated. In some states, such as Oklahoma, Virginia and North Carolina, electors are nominated in party conventions. In Pennsylvania, the campaign committee of each candidate names their candidates for elector (an attempt to discourage faithless electors).[26]

Since the Civil War, all states have chosen presidential electors by popular vote. This process has been normalized to the point that the names of the electors appear on the ballot only in a handful of states.[4][27]


The Tuesday following the first Monday in November has been fixed as the day for holding federal elections, called the Election Day.[28] Forty eight states and Washington, D.C., employ the "winner-takes-all method", each awarding its electors as a single bloc. Maine and Nebraska use the "congressional district method", selecting one elector within each congressional district by popular vote and selecting the remaining two electors by a statewide popular vote. This method has been used in Maine since 1972 and in Nebraska since 1996.[3]

The current system of choosing electors is called the "short ballot". In most states, voters choose a slate of electors, and only a few states list on the ballot the names of proposed electors. In some states, if a voter wants to write in a candidate for president, the voter is also required to write in the names of proposed electors.[26]

After the election each state prepares seven Certificates of Ascertainment, each listing the candidates for president and vice president, their pledged electors, and the total votes each candidacy received.[29] One certificate is sent, as soon after Election Day as practicable, to the National Archivist in Washington D.C. The Certificates of Ascertainment are mandated to carry the State Seal, and the signature of the Governor (in the case of the District of Columbia, the Certificate is signed by the Mayor of the District of Columbia[30]).

My Bold.

This is why the Republicans were so very hard behind Cruz, they had someone who they could use as a pretty face to Rat Fuck Trump with by having someone the delegates could throw their votes at regardless of the popular vote.

I have been asked who I am voting for in this Presidential Election.

I'm not going to bother with it.

The system is rigged to begin with and neither of the two most popular candidates represent my beliefs anyway.

Trump is a Carpetbagger with no specific platform and Hillary is a proven criminal enterprise.

The country we grew up in is dead and we are all just Free Range prisoners wasting time on the charade of electing the warden.

I have better things to do.

The only reason I pay attention to this farce is from a sense of morbid curiosity and the entertainment value I get from observing much ado about nothing.

It's very much like watching a Soap Opera.
A very expensive and elaborate one.

A Brief Message To The GOP Elite Strategists

Ya fucked around and found out, didn't ya?

Your dreams of Rat Fucking Trump with a contested convention just went up in smoke.


My message?

Eat a bag of dicks on your way out.

The Fishing Trip AAR

It was gorgeous yesterday after he wind died down in the morning. Sunny, downright hot in the afternoon. At one point I pretty much had a five mile stretch of the Columbia river all to myself it seemed. No one on the dock, not a tug boat, speed boat, fishing boat or water ski to be seen. If it wasn't for the fact that Highway 14 was a couple hundred yards away it would have been perfect.

The fish must have had other things to do though. I caught one tiny little dude all day.


Doesn't matter, it was the peace and quiet I was after.
I finished up the paperback, had some Chicken On A Stick for lunch and just relaxed all damn day.

It was great. I'll be doing that again here real soon.

Gone Fishing

I went yesterday afternoon, didn't even get a nibble.

It was great.

Going again today, taking the Rat.
It's supposed to get up to 85 degrees.
I don't give a damn if I catch a fish or not, it's nice to get away for a bit.
I took these with my cell phone,this is on the dock at Washougal, my old stomping grounds.




Hopefully I will get some of the wildlife today, more than likely going to get sunburned too.
I was talking to someone the other day that knows me really well and I was lamenting the fact that I hadn't been doing anything but work for a long time.
They told me I needed to get the hell off the internet, go fishing and take a book to read.
I used to be a voracious reader and can't even remember the last time I read a book.

Like I said, this person knows me well.

As you can see, I am taking their advice.
