I'm Back

I'm also exhausted.

We had a great time.

I knocked a few items off my personal Bucket List of places I wanted to go and see.

Saw an old ship wreck today and then got a double bonus.

The wreck of the Peter Iredale.

There was a Pod of big assed whales about a hundred and fifty yards off the beach cruising past and we could see them spouting and then watch the length of their body as they went by.
That was fucking cool.
Then we slipped on over to Fort Stevens right at the mouth of the Columbia River.

THAT was cool as all get out.

It would take all damn day to even begin to walk around that whole thing but we hit the high spots ,the museum and saw the placements and ....
The Big Gun.

We saw all kinds of shit, spent WAY the fuck too much money and generally did the tourist thing.


Seaside has a permanent carnival like atmosphere downtown and there is sugar filled crap everywhere you turn.
I had a deep fried Three Musketeers bar the other day and washed it down with a genuine bottle of Kickapoo Joy Juice.

There was a place that sold real, old fashioned pop in bottles of stuff I haven't seen in thirty years or more.
We had dinner at one of those fancy restaurants that drizzles shit all over the plate where there isn't any food, just like The Food Channel Chef's.

The Rib Eye was out of this world.

Flew a kite, walked all over the damn place and bought trinkets here and there.
It was long overdue, I'll tell ya.
I couldn't possibly tell you what all we did and where all we went in one Blog Post.
One of the most fun things I did was slam the boy around a few times in one of these,

I was so intent on getting to his ass that I heard one little girl complain to her friends that "Some Old Man Rammed Me!"

Highlight of my afternoon. Heh.

If ya can't play with the big dogs, stay on the porch Missy.

I will post some pictures after we get them put on a disc.
All we had were those disposable cameras.

The last thing we did was to go take pictures of the house where that kids movie,"The Goonies" was made.

The wife about had a fit when she found out about it.

It's a privately owned home but they will let ya walk up the driveway and take pictures.
I was so wore out yesterday I fell down about eight thirty and slept for twelve hours.

I'm not too far behind that tonight either.

Back to the grind tomorrow.

Road Trip

We are heading to the beach for a couple of days.
My wifes 15 year old kid has never seen the ocean so I am going to give him the Big Tour.

We are going to Seaside, Oregon.
The end of the trail for Lewis and Clark way back in 1805.

There were still real live Indians around those parts back then.

I am hoping beyond hope the weather cooperates.
Usually when it is nice and hot here in the Portland area that means it is cool and foggy at the beach but here lately we have had an exceptional run of gorgeous weather.

The map is for the NSA so they can give their boys on the coast a heads up.

Hopefully somewhere around this little Burg I can find some WIFI.

See ya when I see ya.

I Ain't Askeered

This tune has been around a long time, over forty years now.
Lemme tell ya, watch this and enjoy it but towards the end you will see that Buck Darhma has still got it goin' on man.

That dude can rock a fucking geetar, in my opinion he is one of the greatest unsung guitar players out there.

I'm going to double bonus you real Blue Oyster Cult fans and throw up the live version of Astronomy.

That one was so good Metallica covered it.

It starts slow and builds but a bit after half way Buck Darhma flat out cuts loose and starts jamming and if your toes aren't tapping by that point you need to check your fucking pulse.

First things first,
Don't Fear The Reaper.

he has still got it.

Now for some jams.


OK, for you REAL fans, GODZILLA!
The ULTIMATE 80's three day drunk kegger tune.

It's Caturday!

I almost forgot until I stopped by Xenolith's place and he reminded me.

Today's entry is extra special just for him.

When I saw this I busted out laughing.

Yes, I am truly an Evil Bastard.
My wife tells me I'm sick.

I dunno about that but I thought this was fucking hysterical.

That's going to be hard to top.

Just Fred

'Just Fred '
An Arizona Highway Patrol officer stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit, so he asks the biker his name.

'Fred,' he replies.

'Fred what?' the officer asks.

'Just Fred,' the man responds.

The officer is in a good mood, thinks he might just give the biker a break, and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name.

The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it.

The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. 'Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?'

The biker replies, 'It's a long story, so stay with me.' I was born Fred Johnson. I studied hard and got good grades. When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Johnson, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school.

Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through School, got my degree, so then I was
Fred Johnson, MD, DDS. Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD, so now I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS, with VD.

Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS.

Then I was Fred Johnson, MD, with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Johnson with VD.

Then the VD took away my Johnson, so now I am Just Fred.'

The officer walked away in tears, laughing.

Sent to me by my Cuz.

Little Asshole

My fucking cat does this shit too.

Thanks to my good friend Suzanne for sending me that one.

They Are Getting Closer

This is the first printed plastic rifle firing a .22 round.

Although it split the barrel and the receiver, it does have a rifled barrel.
That is something new.

Even the lowly .22LR has a lot of force in it's explosive charge and it will take something more robust than the designs they are currently using but mark my words, someone out there is going to figure this stuff out and make a truly functioning plastic weapon that is reusable.

Then I can foresee one made out of recycled plastic eventually too.

Looks Like Jailbait To Me

'Course then again, I have to keep reminding myself that I am 54 years old now . I look and feel like I am 64 anyway so they are ALL jailbait anymore.

You Can't Make This Shit Up

While I am busy picking my jaw up off the floor after reading what I am going to copy here, I am absolutely beside myself with the realization that this administration seems to think that no one in this country has two working brain cells and cannot put the following statement into perspective.
I am going to highlight what I am talking about.

N.S.A. Director Lobbies House on Eve of Critical Vote

Published: July 23, 2013

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration scrambled on Tuesday to slow Congressional opposition to the National Security Agency’s domestic spying operations as the House of Representatives prepared to vote on legislation that would block the agency’s collection of records about every phone call dialed or received inside the United States.

Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the N.S.A. director, held classified meetings with House members on Tuesday.

Jacquelyn Martin/Associated Press

Senator Ron Wyden, a critic of some National Security Agency’s programs, spoke out about expansive surveillance Tuesday.

Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the N.S.A. director, met with Democrats and Republicans to lobby against a proposed amendment to a military appropriations bill that would stop the financing for its phone data collection program. The Republican-sponsored legislation is one of the first Congressional efforts to curb the agency’s domestic spying efforts since they were leaked by Edward J. Snowden, a former N.S.A. contractor.

Later on Tuesday, the White House issued a statement praising the idea of a debate about surveillance but denouncing “the current effort in the House to hastily dismantle” the call tracking program, urging lawmakers to vote down the legislation and instead conduct a “reasoned review of what tools can best secure the nation.”

“This blunt approach is not the product of an informed, open, or deliberative process,” the White House statement said.

Did you just see what I did?

Are you fucking kidding me?!

These fucking cocksuckers have the motherfucking BALLS to chastise Congress for trying to put the brakes on all this government spying that the weasel sonsabitches got OK'd by going to a SECRET COURT with NO PUBLIC ACCESS and NO OVERSIGHT, USING ONLY GOVERNMENT LAWYERS to CIRCUMVENT THE FOURTH AMENDMENT because THEY KNEW DAMN GOOD AND WELL WHAT THEY WERE DOING IS ILLEGAL!.

The mind boggles that these fucking assholes must think they are above the law and there is absolutely zero possibility that this might just go all the way to the Supreme Court and that there may be profound consequences down the road over this.
But what really frosts my balls is this one way bunch of pig fuckers trying to act all high and mighty and start trying to shame a bunch of shameless fucking politicians while completely ignoring their painfully obvious hypocrisy.

Jesus H. Fucking Christ these people are beyond the pale.

A Letter From A Florida Sheriff To The President Of The NAACP

Finally, someone with enough balls to tell it like it is.

This is a verbatim copy of a letter from Sheriff Mike Scott from Lee County Florida to the President of the NAACP, James Muwakkil.
The original copy is a PDF file that can be seen at the link.

My hat is off to Sheriff Scott for pointing out the hypocrisy of the NAACP without pulling any punches and doing it quite civilly I might add.
I would bet money he received no reply either.

My thanks to a certain sweet little old lady for sending it to me in an Email.

Please feel free to pass it along.

Lee County Branch NAACP

3903 Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard
Fort Myers, FL 33916

Attn. President James Muwakkil

Dear President Muwakkil:

I have been invited to the NAACP Freedom Fund Awards Banquet and
have been asked to sponsor the event financially. I will not be doing
either but wanted to explain my concerns and the reasons for my
decision. Frankly, I believe the NAACP locally and nationally loses
credibility when it picks and chooses which issues it rallies around and
embraces what often appears to be a double standard relative to race and
ethnicity. I am citing two (2) local and recent examples of my concern.

Tragically, record numbers of young, black males have been gunned down
in the streets of Fort Myers in an epidemic of alarming proportions over
the last few years. In virtually every instance the killer was also black
and the majority of those cases remain open. Many more black citizens
have been injured and were lucky to survive similar circumstances. To
date, I am unaware of any appreciable attention or public outcry the
NAACP locally­ or nationally have afforded these issues in our own,
proverbial backyard. '

Conversely, you immediately inserted yourself and the Lee County Branch
in the matter of Trayvon Martin’s tragic death in a city hours from ours
and publically declared that matter to have been mishandled by the police
while expressing your intention to travel to Sanford sporting a “hoodie”

I suspect that when you said that, you had not examined any of the
evidence or specifics of the incident; and I am certain you would not have
reacted that way had George Zimmerman been black or Trayvon Martin

The fact is that Zimmerman is half Latino [Peruvian mother) but was
portrayed early on by media and others as being “white.” That seemed to
fit better for a “white/black” contrast much like the media altering of the
911 recordings helped fan the flames of racism early on. Ironically,
President Obama is half white but is generally referred to as being “black”

and so there appears to be an inclination among some to insert ethnicity
as it fits with their agenda.

Fast forward to the trial and verdict which resulted in Zimmerman’s
acquittal...the same trial, verdict, and in fact justice system that you
would have applauded had it convicted him. A leading cause of death for
young, black males across our nation is murder and an astounding
percentage is being murdered 'by young, black males. The noticeable lack
of involvement and attention given those tragedies by the NAACP begs the
question why in my mind. Black on black and black on white seem to
illicit far less emotion than the proportionately occasional white on black
examples like Zimmerman who as noted earlier is actually only as
“white” as President Obama.

Finally, I find resurrected fixation with the portrait of Robert E. Lee
and the demand for its removal regrettable. The timing so proximate to
the Zimmerman race baiting is certainly suspect. While I am not black, l
continue to be amazed by what is deemed “racially offensive and] or
insensitive” and what is not. For example, the rampant use of the word

“nigger” in the wildly popular hip-hop culture that floods the ears of

youth across this nation and is comprised primarily of black artists

apparently stirs little to no emotion among blacks but the portrait of à
General Lee does? I am fifty (50) years old, and I have heard more black '
people (including top, black comedians being funny] utter the word

“nigger” in my lifetime than I could have ever fathomed. I continue to

wonder why the NAACP does not publicly decry this trend and advocate
its cessation. It is for these reasons that I feel your focus on the Lee
portrait amounts to little more than unrealistic posturing that serves to
further a divide and promote a double standard. After all sir; our county is
named after General Robert E. Lee and his portrait is far from the only
reference to him, so I am left to Wonder where this agenda stops.

I consider you a friend and hope my candor does not ruin that; however, I
simply find myself unable to support your professional agenda, which I
believe actually contradicts the end goal of eliminating double standards.

Warm regards,

Sheriff Mike Scott

Camel Toe My Ass, That's The Whole Hoof!

She Was One Of Us, Dammit!

Rest In Peace, Nicole Morse Morse.

May 27, 1975 ~ June 11, 2013

Nicole Claudio Morse was a much loved wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend,and bacon aficionado. She had a generous, open heart and a smile that could light up a room. She was the kind of person, says her friend Darla Hood, who was happiest when others were happy. Her life ended, much too soon, at the Ray Hickey Hospice House in Vancouver, Washington, on June 11, 2013.

I saw this in the local paper Friday at work.
A tragic loss.

Saturday, July 20, 2013


Oh my poor fucking neighbors,they're in for it now.


I was out in the garage moving shit around (again) after I had gotten rid of some shit taking up too much space last weekend and I was trying to figure out where to put the Kenwood stereo system I have.

I got this thing cheap from my oldest friend a few years ago when he needed some money.
I remember when he bought the thing back in '82, it cost him Two Grand.
When he bought it it was a surround sound system with four humongous fucking tower speakers.
I didn't get the speakers, just the modular set up.
Receiver, CD player, Pre Amp/Equalizer and the Final Amp with the speaker plugs.
He even threw in three different turntables, two of which were high dollar motherfuckers but didn't work.
The last one though was a quartz direct drive beauty.
It even has a fucking remote I gotta find.

I put it in a box and didn't bother hooking it up until about six months ago.
I have SEVERAL boxes of old albums from the late 70', 80's and early nineties I have been lugging around for decades now but didn't have a turntable anymore.

This is all background to what I am gonna lay on ya now.

I have another best buddy I have known for twenty years now.
He used to buy a lot of cars at auctions cheap and turn them.

He gave me this olllld fucking Kenwood receiver that he found in the back of one them about five years ago.
This thing is a fucking MONSTER.
I'm not even kidding.
Twenty four and a half inches long, eight inches high and sixteen inches deep.

Ladies and gentleman, please let me introduce you to the 1979 Kenwood Model Eleven GX.

This thing is one BAAAAAAAAAD Motherfucker.
120 watts per channel and it has hookups for THREE sets of speakers! You can even plug in two turntables, two sets of headphones and of course it has a buttload of functions and jacks for taping and playback.

I could never figure out how to get sound out of it, until tonight.
It has a separate Pre Amp and Final Amp inside.

I finally got to dicking around with this and the components to the other one.
First I got the Final Amp to work using the other receiver/ Amp.
All the controlls had to come from the other unit but the sound came out of the Big Mutha.
Then I fucked around and plugged the Pre Amp from BM, hooked it into the INPUT to the other one then sent the OUTPUT back to the BM and HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!

I almost blew both of my speakers, thank God I had BM turned way the fuck down!

Turning up the other one, I can only turn BM to about 1 and it is loud.
Three would just blow the fucking speakers.

Remember this?

Yeah, just like that.

Come to find out this fucking monster wasn't available to the general public.
You had to be in the military to get one and then you had to order the fucking thing from the factory in Japan.

$700 in 1979 dollars.

I read a comment in a forum thread from a guy who had one while he was still in the military and he said the M.P.'s came banging on his door to tell him to turn the damn thing down once.
He asked them who called about it and they said nobody.
They could hear it when they walked out the door A MILE AND A HALF AWAY.

I have been researching this thing and people who are seriously into audio start creaming their jeans when they show up for sale.

I have been wanting a stereo system like this since forever. I finally get one now that I'm deaf in one ear and can't hear out the other of course.

Now there is only one thing that must be done.

It's pronounced KLIPSCH.

It's Caturday!

I'll help celebrate it by giving away a Free Cat.

There is no warranty though.

Obama Now Trashing Tenth Amendment Too

What's with this fucking guy who is supposed to be some kind of Constitutional scholar?
Does he not remember the Tenth Amendment too?

Have a double helping of FAIL asshole.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is calling for a review of the controversial Stand Your Ground laws that were at the heart of the killing of Trayvon Martin.

"I think it would be useful for us to examine some state and local laws to see if it -- if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than defuse potential altercations," Obama told reporters in a surprise press conference at the White House on Friday.

Let me refresh your memory Dickhead, all these "Stand Your Ground" laws are STATE LAWS,not Federal laws.
The Tenth Amendment was put in place for EXACTLY these kinds of situations, where the Federal Government tries to stick their nose in where it doesn't belong.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
I have a better idea.
Why don't you review this?

They Should Already Be In Jail

Theiving sonsabitches. The statute of limitations is running out for prosecuting all those Wall Street motherfuckers who crippled the entire world economy clear back in 2007 .The effects of that are STILL reverberating around the planet to this day and there is no end to it in sight.

That means every single one of them not currently under indictment will walk away scott free,unless.....

Federal Prosecutors May Charge Wall Street Bankers Who Sold Bad Loans Under An Obscure 1984 Law

....."federal authorities are finding new evidence they say indicates intent to commit fraud over the packaging and sale of mortgage bonds backed by subprime home loans in some of the civil lawsuits plaintiffs' lawyers have filed against large banks.

And they are exploring whether they can build criminal cases against bankers by using a 1984 law intended to punish individuals for scamming commercial banks."

"The strategy involves a shift away from the more widely used securities fraud charge to a less common offense: bank fraud. The advantage is that perpetrators of bank fraud can be charged up to 10 years after their crimes, compared with the five-year statute of limitations on securities fraud, which has already run out on most events leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. A bank fraud conviction carries up to $1 million in fines and a maximum prison sentence of 30 years.

Rita Glavin, a partner at Seward & Kissel in New York who specializes in white-collar, criminal defense, said she thought the statute's broad scope gave prosecutors an opportunity to use it, and adding a conspiracy charge could help."

I sure as shit ain't a lawyer but I would dearly love to see some of this fall under the RICO Act.

The fact that there hasn't been one high level banker charged in any of this stinks to high heaven.

Two Can Play Those Games

Let this be a lesson to you fascist motherfuckers, not everyone is on board with your self proclaimed "special powers".

ROME -- The Italian justice ministry says a former CIA station chief who was convicted in the 2003 abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect from a street of Milan has been detained in Panama.

Robert Seldon Lady, the former Milan station chief, was sentenced by an Italian appeals court earlier this year in the extraordinary rendition case to nine years in prison after being tried in absentia in Italy.

The ministry said it didn't immediately have details on when or where in the Central American country Lady was detained.

This is why you don't see George W. Bush and Dick Fucking Cheney gallivanting all over the globe.

There are people out there just waiting to snatch their asses up and try them for War Crimes.

Now I Gotta Find A New One Dammit

I saw that on a bumper sticker once and about died laughing.
I told my Dad's cousin about it a few years later and about six months after that I got the plate frame in the mail.
It immediately went on my little Sprite.
Ohhh, the grief I get from people with no fucking sense of humor, I tell ya.
I've got four fucking cats running around this joint, give me a fucking break.

I was out in the garage the other day working on the miserable little sonofabitch when I noticed that my beloved plate frame is broken!

Oh the humanity!
I've had that fucking thing for almost twenty years! It was the very first thing I put back on that car after I had it painted.

I will probably have to find some outfit on the internet and have one made.
Dang it, that just pisses me off, I have no idea how that fucker got broke.

I will have another.

Was That A Barn Door Slamming Shut That I Just Heard?

Cue the phony outrage.

NSA spying under fire: 'You've got a problem'

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a heated confrontation over domestic spying, members of Congress said Wednesday they never intended to allow the National Security Agency to build a database of every phone call in America. And they threatened to curtail the government's surveillance authority.

Top Obama administration officials countered that the once-secret program was legal and necessary to keep America safe. And they left open the possibility that they could build similar databases of people's credit card transactions, hotel records and Internet searches.

The clash on Capitol Hill undercut President Barack Obama's assurances that Congress had fully understood the dramatic expansion of government power it authorized repeatedly over the past decade.

The House Judiciary Committee hearing also represented perhaps the most public, substantive congressional debate on surveillance powers since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Previous debates have been largely theoretical and legalistic, with officials in the Bush and Obama administrations keeping the details hidden behind the cloak of classified information.

This Dog and Pony show is getting old.

Call me when they actually do something about this.

There Has To Be A Dusty Road Around Here Somewhere

I took my rig through the car wash the other day,there is a fucking sour cherry tree behind the garage and the cherries fall on the roof of the garage.
Some of them bounce pretty good and tend to land on the hood of my car where they proceed to leave a juicy mess.

My car wash experience needs an upgrade like this.

That's the ticket, Wax On, Wax Off.

Just in case there was any doubt, I am a Red Blooded American Male.

In other words, a complete Horn Dog.

I'm Having Dinner Over At Irish's Place

I'll bring the French bread, you bring the wine.

Someone Finally Articulates What Is Really Wrong With Our Government

It isn't what you have been pointing at either.
Pretty brilliant and Claire Wolfe says it hasn't really coalesced into what she was trying to say.

Here is the money quote;

What if you could sit Aunt Lyda and Uncle William and all the other members of the Average family down and point out to them that a government that’s ridden with enormous secret agencies operating under secret law interpreted by secret courts is not, cannot be, and will never be, a democracy or a republic or whatever form you’ve been taught all these years to salute?

I seriously urge you to go read the whole thing.

Ms. Wolfe is most definitely not your average Blogger and she has been pretty far seeing for a long damn time when it comes to picking apart and working around the system.

Needs More Bacon

In less strategic places dammit!

Somehow It's Different Now?

Trust me, just because they made it "legal", our news media has been sucking government dick for a long time now.
Investigative reporting has been dead for twenty years . Anything they "report" of any substance has to have previous Whitehouse blessings.

U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News To Americans

For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?


The restriction of these broadcasts was due to the Smith-Mundt Act, a long standing piece of legislation that has been amended numerous times over the years, perhaps most consequentially by Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. In the 70s, Fulbright was no friend of VOA and Radio Free Europe, and moved to restrict them from domestic distribution, saying they "should be given the opportunity to take their rightful place in the graveyard of Cold War relics." Fulbright's amendment to Smith-Mundt was bolstered in 1985 by Nebraska Senator Edward Zorinsky who argued that such "propaganda" should be kept out of America as to distinguish the U.S. "from the Soviet Union where domestic propaganda is a principal government activity."

Registration required.

H/T Fark.

Trayvon Martin protesters blocks freeway, streets; LAPD moves in.

The Los Angeles Police Department was tracking several protests Sunday related to the Trayvon Martin verdict, including one that turned violent with police firing bean bag rounds.

Police emphasized that most of the protesters were peaceful. But there have been several splinter groups from the main protest that have been more aggressive, officials said.

LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith said some demonstrators threw rocks and D-cell batteries at police near the corner of Washington Boulevard and 10th Avenue. Police responded by firing less-than-lethal rounds at the demonstrators.

Police are also monitoring about 150 protesters who are marching north on Western Avenue into Hollywood. So far only one arrest has been made.

Garcetti urges calm as Trayvon Martin protests block traffic.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called for peace Sunday night as the Los Angeles Police Department dealt with scattered protests in the wake of the Trayvon Martin verdict.

Moving on to New York;

Trayvon Martin demonstration moves into Times Square in New York.

Demonstrators protesting Trayvon Martin's death amassed in New York City's Times Square on Sunday night after marching about two miles from an earlier rally at Union Square.

As tourists looked on, the protesters chanted: “What do we want?” “Justice!” “When do we want it?” “Now!”

The demonstration was one of many in major U.S. cities Sunday after George Zimmerman was acquitted Saturday night of murdering Trayvon Martin in Florida.

After a protest Saturday night in Oakland turned violent, Sunday's protests were peaceful.

Lines of police occasionally attempted to redirect the New York march as it moved through Manhattan, with cabs and trucks sometimes honking in support.

"We are all Trayvon Martin!" a speaker with a megaphone told the demonstrators in Times Square, with the rally broadcast on a live feed over the Web. "Justice for Trayvon Martin!"

So far I haven't seen any reports of looting or any actual riots but give 'em a little time to get worked up into a proper frenzy, will ya?

Waiting For The Damage Reports Now

Looks like Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Glad I don't live anywhere near that area.

The Little Voices Can Be Very Persuasive!

So much so that you will throw caution to the wind and do something crazy like start a Blog.

Our Den Mother Angel just gave us a heads up that a certain Co conspirator who goes by the name Xenolith just started his own Blog.

You poor bastard.

You have no idea what you just got yourself into, do ya?

It's like having a very demanding child who keeps you up at night thinking about shit to post later.
Saving pictures because, ya never know, that might come in handy, figuring out how to link to people, figuring out a Blogroll, reading things that make you crazy, looking for the inspiration to write that one Blogpost that will put ya on the map.

Running full blast face first into that brick wall known as writers block.
Then we have the ultimate ego killer known as the Stat Counter.
Did anybody actually read my Blog today?
Why don't I have any comments?!
Oh, and lets not forget those pesky Spammer's now.

Oh yeah buddy, it's all coming.

Even with all that, I wish you the best of luck and I am giving ya a little encouragement anyway.
Look for him on the side bar, the name of the joint is The Voices In My Head.

Swing by and say Howdy.
Let him know Busted sent ya too.

Listen To The Action Plan.

Anonymous is saying they are going to start leaking the personal information of one politician each week who slandered Edward Snowden as a criminal and were involved with supporting the NSA and Prism and then they will expose just how much money it took for the low life's to turn their back on us and show them just how it feels to have their private information mined and disseminated.

This could get very interesting.
You gotta know there are some skeletons buried deep with some of these assholes.

I do believe the term I am looking for is called "Dirty Pool".

I guess sometimes the only way to get some peoples attention is to use the 2X4 of enlightenment upside their heads.
In the mean time, there is still this,

Found at Boing Boing.

Janet Napolitano to head UC system

Before anyone starts cheering, let's wait to see who gets nominated to replace her fucking ass at DHS.
We could very easily go from bad to worse.

“While some may consider her to be an unconventional choice, Secretary Napolitano is without a doubt the right person at the right time to lead this incredible university," Sherry Lansing, the regent and former film industry executive who headed the search committee, said in a statement being released Friday. "She will bring fresh eyes and a new sensibility -- not only to UC, but to all of California. She will stand as a vigorous advocate for faculty, students and staff at a time when great changes in our state, and across the globe, are presenting as many opportunities as challenges.”

Yadda yadda yadda.
The bookstore is going to lay in a large stock of thumb screws and students will be required to submit to full body cavity searches every other Wednesday.

A source close to Napolitano, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Napolitano deliberated for a long time after the executive search firm hired by UC quietly contacted her.

“I think she loves working for President Obama and serving the American people, but at the same time, this is a unique opportunity,” he said. Napolitano knows “UC is probably the premier institution in the country. She is motivated by the fact that being a part of UC, she will be a part of educating future leaders of tomorrow and be part of a state that sets so much of the agenda nationally.”

Creative Thinking

A guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a lamp partially
buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. A genie appears
and tells him he has been granted one wish.

The guy thinks for a moment and says, "I want to live forever."

"Sorry," said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life."

"OK, then, I want to die after the Democrats balance the budget and eliminate
the debt.

"You crafty little bastard," said the genie.

Sent to me by a nice little old lady, seriously.

Oregon: 2013 Legislative Session Adjourns with Victories for Gun Owners

Posted on July 11, 2013

The 2013 legislative session wrapped up in Salem this week after a contentious session filled with several anti-gun bills. These bills were a direct attack on the Second Amendment, aimed at law-abiding citizens – not criminals. These bills ranged from outright bans and registries of commonly owned firearms in House Bill 3200 to legislation aimed at restricting CHL holders with Senate Bills 347, 699 and 796, and criminalization of private firearm transfers without a background check in Senate Bill 700. With your help, all of these bills aimed at restricting the Second Amendment were defeated.

My emphasis.

I wouldn't get too excited about it, we all know that just like rust, these fucking Anti- Gun bastards never sleep.

They will be back next year.

I Agree, Do You?

Nowhere in the Constitution or The Bill Of Rights does it say a damn thing about guaranteeing safety.

In the last twenty to thirty years, people have been trying to legislate it though, at a breakneck pace.

I have news for you panty waist motherfuckers, you are going to fail and fail big in your efforts to legislate safety.
It's impossible.
Even Common Sense isn't common anymore because you won't let people learn from their own mistakes.
It's just, you can't do that, we passed a law against it.

There is always going to be that one extraordinarily stupid bastard out there who is going to come up with some shit you never dreamed of though.

As for the rest of us who have managed to live well beyond our wildest expectations, we don't appreciate you punk ass bitches outlawing our fun.
Yes, some of the things we call fun can be dangerous.
We are old and wise enough to respect that and we sure as fuck don't need you to step outside your boundaries and into our personal space because you have no imagination and are afraid of your own shadows.

There are so many laws on the books as of this writing that no human being could possibly know them all and for damn sure, it would take weeks just to find and read them.
That doesn't seem to be good enough for some people though, they want more and more laws.
Restricting our personal liberties all in the name of safety.
Think of the children is their battle cry.

Here is a hint for ya, your children right now couldn't cook for themselves, couldn't find their way home by themselves, can't carry on a conversation with the least amount of intelligence, have absolutely zero knowledge of the true history of this country and if the fucking electricity were to go out and stay out for a month would probably be dead in three weeks because THEY CAN'T THINK FOR THEMSELVES!

This is your legacy you Nanny Motherfuckers!

Children unable to interact with the world around them.

Go ahead, pass all the laws you want, the damage is done.
You have a couple of generations of dysfunctional and helpless kids out there already that you have doomed.

Fucking around with the education system and turning out millions of functionally illiterate citizens that don't even know what a manual can opener is.

I grew up the hard way and I am here to tell you that 85% of the kids I see these days would not have survived what I did.
Call it bravado or bullshit, it's the truth and here I am.
I was cooking and taking care of my little brother basically by myself when I was nine years old.Laundry,personal hygiene,getting him ready for school, the works.

Kids these days don't have the coping skills nor the survival skills that were taught to us by our parents and Grandparents who lived through the Depression.
It's a fact.
As for me, I'm with Thomas Jefferson.

You pussy sonsabitches can go fuck yourselves and if you think for one minute that I am paying attention to all these new fucking laws, you are seriously mistaken.

The Confusion Concerning The Gun Blog Black List Revised Edition

Somehow the old one disappeared but it is back now.

Check it, here is the link.
If you are a Second Amendment Blogger, you should be on that list.

If you aren't get in touch,the info is at the Blog.
Unfortunately, his extensive Bloglist did not magically reappear and he is still trying to piece it back together.
If you are on that list or are planning on it, you should also be kind enough to do a little reciprocity and proudly put his Logo on your own Blog somewhere.


As of this morning, there is now a new development.

I originally found out about the GBBL being deleted here.
I left a comment and then saw this in the comment section.

The New Gun Blog Black List Is Here:

I tried with no success to find the original site, so this is where I linked to and put up the graphic to link to also.
Then this morning, I see this comment has been added;

North said...

The GBBL is run by someone else. All that was done was that someone made a copy and worked to get people to link to them.

Do not use my graphics to point to any blog other than

My bold.

OOOOOKay then!
I am cornfused as they say.

I can certainly respect Mr. North's objections and have removed the graphic with the link to the other site.

The ORIGINAL Gun Blog Black List is back, HERE.

Where it went and how it came back is beyond me.

The NEW GBBL has been renamed and is called Great Gun Blogs.

Keep up with me here because this is a fucking mess.
I am half tempted to delete this whole fucking post.

Who Says The Economy Is Bad?

You certainly couldn't tell people are broke by listening to all the fucking shit going off in this neighborhood and it ain't even fucking dark yet!

There is some serious ass money going up in smoke around here already!

Fuck that noise.
I didn't spend a fucking nickel on fireworks.
I blew about two hundred bucks at the fucking hardware store this morning though.

Jesus H. Fucking Christ stainless steel fasteners are expensive!
I bought a bunch of little bolts of varying lengths, they are almost all 1/4 X28 fine threaded shit for my little car.
I got some other shit while I was there that I couldn't find anywhere else.
A skinny little 3/16ths rod 3 feet long in Stainless was FOURTEEN FUCKING DOLLARS!

I am talking skinnier than a fucking drinking straw!

Bastards seen my narrow ass comin', I'm tellin' ya. I have been working on that little money sink all day.

Anyways. enjoy your evening and I hope you don't have any high strung pets.

The Nanny bitches around here have been trying to outright ban fireworks in this town for years and every year the motherfuckers get just a little more shrill.

Bite me ya sonsabitches.


Man, it's like somebody flipped a switch.
It went from Gonzo War Zone to Dead Quiet in about fifteen minutes, right after Midnight.

All those Big Boomer's and Mortars and anything that flies through the air are illegal here and I heard lot's of sirens and a helicopter flying around about Eleven.
I'm thinking the local PO-lice decided that everyone had enough fun and threw the anchor out.

Ain't breakin' my heart.

We hold these truths to be self-evident,

It seems certain individuals have willfully chosen to ignore the history of why this country was founded in the first place.
It also seems that these same people believe that they have unchecked power and can ignore the laws that govern this country without fear of accountability.

I would remind them that the flavor of accountability is most bitter and unpleasant which is why the majority of citizens tend to stay within the lawful framework provided to us all those years ago.

I would also remind them that certain individuals way back then also felt that they could rule on a whim without retribution.

I think we can all agree that their notions were forcibly and very publicly ,shall I say, Shot Down.

Word to the wise motherfuckers, entropy will fuck up the best laid plans.

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Shortly after this famous passage there was a list of "repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States"

This list is sounding more and more familiar, as if history is repeating its self.

On this, the anniversary of our Declaration of Independence, I would urge all American citizens to stop and think about how this country came about in the first place and to realize it is up to us to hold those elected representatives in government accountable for their actions.

It is well past time to start ladling out bitter and unpleasant doses of accountability by the bucket full.

Stay safe.

Why Can't We Live In Peace?

Because there are way too many fucking assholes on this planet for one thing.

This is an excellent fucking tune by The Firm back in '84. Paul Rogers of Bad Company fame and everyones favorite Led Zeppelin character, Jimmy Page.
For the life of me I could never figure out why they didn't release this one. It was never played on the radio at the time. I stumbled on it way back when they played it for a broadcasted concert, may have been Live Aid or something like that.

I never forgot it.
I hope you never do either.

It's A Rebel Yell

Not the Billy Idol kind either.

Here is a video of real live Veterans of the Civil War from the 1930's giving us a taste of what the original Rebel Yell sounded like.
First in a group and then individually.

This may surprise the hell out of ya, it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.

Now imagine several thousand wild eyed Southern boys all fired up for battle yelling all at once.

I do believe I can hear my ancestors quietly urging me to stand up on my hind legs and cut loose with a full throated Rebel Yell.

I had quite a few ancestors fight in that war,most of them of Southern heritage, thank you very much.
I have ancestors that fought in the original Revolutionary War too. Ornery bunch, I'm pretty sure none of them were ever in the fertilizer business, not a one of 'em took any shit from what I'm told.

My Mothers side of the family was 100% Southern stock from Farmers to real live Ozark Mountain Hillbillies and then some.

I actually met my Great Aunt who lived in the Tennessee Ozarks back in 1976.
Fox Fire material in the flesh. Even then I thought that was a very special opportunity that not a lot of people got to experience.
No running water, no indoor plumbing but she did have at least one electric light bulb in the front room.
She was in her eighties then and lived alone.
She and her brother had inherited the family farm, eighty acres of gorgeous Ozark Mountain farmland. Beautiful meadows, the ancient barn, the whole works.

She was the nicest lady you would ever want to meet.

I often wondered what ever happened to that land after she passed.

So it just might surprise y'all if I slip up and start talking like a Southern boy occasionally.

I kid you not, if I am around anyone from Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri or anywhere near that area for a few hours, my speech starts morphing and pretty soon I start talking like I lived there my whole life.
It's freaky.

I was born, raised and have lived my entire life on the West Coast but I was raised quite a bit by my Grandparents and have visited back there a few times.I come by it naturally.
My Grand parents were Old School Depression era survivors.Grandma's clan was from Missouri and Grandpa's clan was from Tennessee. My Mother was born in Missouri.
I have literally been accused of being from the South several times by people who don't believe me when I tell them I am a West Coast native.

I can tell you one thing about myself that is one hundred percent accurate.
I have been a Rebel my whole fucking life and I damn sure ain't gonna quit now.

Half Pints Are Half Price

It's amazing what you will find on Google Images when you are looking for car parts.

I found this picture while looking to see how the clutch line was originally routed on my Sprite.

Austin Healey Sprites (starting in '62) and MG Midgets were identical cars except for the grills and the serial numbers basically.

This is what I was originally looking for.

Yeah, it's the same thing. Sure.
