OPEC Just Collectively Shit Their Pants

It's the future baby and the Hydrocarbon Barons just got a whiff of it.

Breakthrough solar cell captures CO2 and sunlight, produces burnable fuel

Obama Signs Executive Order That Instantly Criminalizes Millions Of Amateur Gunsmiths.

This is just laughable on it's face. I got news for you Jack, I absolutely will not comply with this bullshit.

Arrogant fucking asshole thinks that he can just whip out his pen and automatically write new regulations that would not only make anyone who merely threads a bolt hole on a gun register with a government agency but make them fork over 2,500 dollars a year for the privilege of having to do so.

You can kiss my ass if you think I'm doing that for one fucking second.

Obama regime targets gunsmiths with new executive order

President Barack Obama just quietly released a new executive order that could subject casual gunsmiths to thousands of dollars in fees and other regulatory burdens if they so much as thread a barrel on a firearm.

The executive order gives new authority to the State Department’s Directorate of Defense trade Controls, which oversees International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the underlying Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

From the State Department: “Any person who engages in the United States in the business of manufacturing or exporting or temporarily importing defense articles, or furnishing defense services, is required to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls … For the purpose of this subchapter, engaging in such a business requires only one occasion of manufacturing or exporting or temporarily importing a defense article or furnishing a defense service. A manufacturer who does not engage in exporting must nevertheless register.”

According to the presidential directive, firearm modifications that do not require “drilling, cutting, or machining” are not affected by the new rules.

But a commercial gunsmith who makes just one modification on the list of activities the government believes improves “the accuracy, caliber, or operation” of a firearm is subject to the new rules.

Examples of included gunsmithing activities include:

Use of any special tooling or equipment upgrading in order to improve the capability of assembled or repaired firearms;
Modifications to a firearm that change round capacity;
The production of firearm parts (including, but not limited to, barrels, stocks, cylinders, breech mechanisms, triggers, silencers, or suppressors);
The systemized production of ammunition, including the automated loading or reloading of ammunition;
The machining or cutting of firearms, e.g., threading of muzzles or muzzle brake installation requiring machining, that results in an enhanced capability;
Rechambering firearms through machining, cutting, or drilling;
Chambering, cutting, or threading barrel blanks; and
Blueprinting firearms by machining the barrel.
Any of those activities would require registration with the government and an annual $2,250 fee.

Let' me make this perfectly clear to you ignorant gun grabbing motherfuckers.

I Will Not Comply With This In Any Way, Shape Or Form.


Do you get that?

I mean, do you really get it? Because I'm getting the impression that you aren't listening anymore. You are just sticking your fingers in your ears, yelling LA LA LA LA and doing whatever you damn well please like 5 year olds.

Another thing I can absolutely guarantee you that I will not be alone in this.
As a matter of fact, I would bet money that there are a couple million other Americans who are going to say EXACTLY the same thing, TOMORROW.

I own my guns you sonsabitches. I own my tools also.


I am really, really having a hard time wrapping my head around what it is about these words that you can't seem to grasp even though they were written down over two hundred years ago and the meaning hasn't changed in that time;

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Since someone has obviously been handing Mr. Obama some seriously bad advice here, let me perhaps clue you and him in.

Technology and innovation are not static things.
There is always someone out there trying to make a better mouse trap as it were and firearm technology is no exception.

Since the Supreme Court ruled in Caetano v. Massachusetts (2016), that "the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding" and that its protection is not limited to "only those weapons useful in warfare".[15] , it would seem to be crystal clear to someone with even average intelligence that maintenance and repair of said firearms is an integral activity relating to the ownership and functionability of said firearms also.

That would indicate to me that gunsmithing is an integral part of gun ownership and should also be part and parcel of what is a Constitutionally protected activity.

Apparently Mr. Obama is under the impression that you can have your guns but can't repair them without government permission, because National Security. The same lame assed strategy they have tried to pull bullshit with before.

All this amounts to is a backhanded, impotent swipe at gun control.

If all of a sudden here in the near future we start hearing about ATF raids on gunsmiths who aren't complying with this over reach either then I have one name I want you all to remember and especially the story behind why that name is so significant.

Vacuum sealing dry goods in jars with a pressure canner

I saw this idea posted over at SurvivalBlog a couple of weeks ago and thought it was pretty brilliant.

Since then I have ordered and received a brand new vacuum pump, one of those Food Saver adapters for Mason Jars and an adapter for the vacuum pump fitting. The vacuum pump is the kind you can buy to fix the air conditioning in your car with and I got a smoking deal on it from Amazon because I applied for their damn credit card and got 50 bucks off my order for it.

I also have had a pressure canner sitting in a box that I bought brand new a few years ago that I have never used.
I was bit disappointed when I finally opened it up and discovered the gauge and little rocker gizmo were missing but I'll be getting those coming here pretty quick now that I know that they weren't there for whatever reason.
I am going to get a little ball valve, a bulkhead type fitting for the hose I need to get and will put the fitting in the hole where the gauge was supposed to go.
I'll also throw a "tee" fitting inline and mount a vacuum gauge on that.
When It's all together, it should be a pretty first class set up for doing this.
Then I need the jars of course but since canning season is here that should be easy.
After that, It's keep an eye out for dry goods that go on sale and have at it.

I found this video on Youtube that shows how it works and also that you can do it cheap too.

One thing I noticed in this video is that the guy mentions doing this to his wine so it doesn't go bad. I would strongly recommend that you do this with dry goods only.
The reason for the ball valve is that while researching this, I found a guy who said that if you don't apply the vacuum gradually on powdery things like flour is that it will suck it up into the hose.

Not good, you definitely don't want that kind of thing getting into your pump and gumming it all up.

If anyone has any experience with this please let me know your thoughts in the comments, it would be nice to hear if there is anything else I should be aware of.

Everyone Is Watching Everyone

I found it more than a bit interesting yesterday to read on a couple of the blogs that they had noticed a huge bump in their readership stats that they discovered came from...... Russia, of all places.

I have been so damn busy that I haven't been paying attention myself so I just went back through the limited amount of data recorded by my free StatCounter account and didn't see that here but it only captures the last 500 hits and then writes over them.

That's because I am a cheap bastard and don't want to pay to upgrade it though.

I did see the usual U.S. Government entities which I have pretty much gotten used to.
They used to kind of freak me out a long time ago, it can be a bit disconcerting to see the Justice Department, Us Department Of Defense Network along with every branch of the military, The Treasury Department, The Spooks from Langley, and of all places, The Office of the Sergeant at Arms for the United States Senate show up repeatedly but it is what it is and they can come here all they want if they haven't got anything better to do.
I hope I entertain you folks as well because I know you are reading this.

So anyways we have the US government watching us, The Russians, The Chinese and I always get a few hits here and there from the perverts over in the Middle East looking for shit I won't bother telling you about. Sick bastards.

While I am on the subject of international visitors, I would like to give a Shout Out to my readers from Across The Pond and the many I get from Down Under too.

Y'all come back now, y'hear? I just love that.

It warms the cockles of my black little heart to be able to point out that I have readers from all the way around the world.
My Dad was pretty proud of me for that too.

Everyone is watching everyone, some of it is surely politically driven and a type of espionage, I am convinced of that.
There isn't a reason in the world that some Ivan over in Moscow should be traipsing around my joint, same thing for Sum Ting Wong in Canton.
My own government snooping around here stinks of paranoia to High Heaven, to point out the obvious.

Although I must admit I have had some pretty rabid political rants in my day, there may just be a few .Gov fans who are enjoying a good skewering here and there. Who the fuck knows.

I am here to tell you though that they do read the Blogs, so do some of the major "news" providers. I was once linked to by the Wall Street Journal several years back on the blog I started out with clear back in '06.
It would surprise you just who may be reading whatever it is you might have to say.

I would wager that I have readers who have been coming here for years and have never left a comment.

You folks need to get over that shyness.
The government knows you come here anyway.

Gauging The Mood of the Country.

Some recent conversations I have had with people I interact with on a regular basis has opened my eyes a bit to just how many people I am around who seem to share pretty much the same opinions and outlook that I have on the situation we are all facing in this country and what people as individuals can do to prepare for what we all seem to see as the short trip we are all taking, in a hand basket, to someplace very hot that isn't Texas.

The interest in storing food, common interest in firearms and the decidedly right side of the spectrum political opinions pretty much caught me off guard at first but it seems to be more prevalent than I would have imagined.

I was quite surprised to hear one fellow had been canning food for years and actually had chickens when he only lived a couple of miles from where we were sitting.
I heard of another fellow we were all familiar with who also had chickens and other small livestock within a fifteen minute drive.

One has been interested in and around firearms his whole life and has just started expressing an interest in "prepping" for lack of a better word because I have never really liked that one.

Not wild eyed survivalist sentiments, more of a family man who doesn't like what he sees coming and wants to some sort of food storage for at least emergency contingencies.

This was just one conversation.

It is not the only one I have had recently and the common thread seems to be that people are thinking they need to do something because of a nagging feeling that all is not well and may just get worse real quick.

I'm pretty certain that none of these people I have been talking to spend near as much time as I do wallowing in the Doom and Gloom corner of the internet nor have the faintest idea what the Baltic Dry Index is or why it should matter to anyone in the first place.

These are just average working class Americans and they are worried.
Rightfully so I am afraid.

I am pretty sure that these are not isolated sentiments and that conversations like this are happening all over the country every day.

Just for my own information, I am interested in seeing if any of the sixteen people who read this blog every day are hearing conversations like this lately also.

Let 'er rip in the comments please.

They Are Letting John Hinckley Out , The Guy Who Tried To Kill A President.

You gotta be shitting me.

Judge grants John Hinckley Jr. his freedom decades after Reagan assassination attempt

The man who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan is set to go free, after a judge decided Wednesday to allow would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr. to live with his mother in Virginia full-time.

Hinckley is set to begin his "convalescent leave" on Aug. 5, according to U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman's order.

“I’m very glad this happened after Mrs. Reagan passed on,” said Reagan’s 1984 campaign manager Ed Rollins, referencing the death of Nancy Reagan in March. “It would have been a very disturbing thing for her.”

Friedman wrote that "all of the experts and treatment providers" who testified during the hearing agreed that Hinckley's issues -- major depression and psychotic disorder -- were "in full and sustained remission and have been for more than twenty years."

"Mr. Hinckley is clinically ready for full-time convalescent leave," Friedman wrote.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute issued a statement disapproving of the judge's decision.
"Contrary to the judge's decision, we believe John Hinckley is still a threat to others and we strongly oppose his release," the statement said.
Hinckley, 61, attempted to kill Reagan outside of the Washington Hilton Hotel on March 30, 1981. He fired six shots, hitting four people, including Reagan, who was wounded when a bullet bounced off his presidential limo. Press Secretary James Brady was shot in the right side of his head, sustaining serious injuries. When he died in August 2014, Brady's death was ruled a homicide.

The same Brady shooting that all the gun control efforts were spawned by.

Stick this fucking guy back in prison and break the key off in the lock.

Sure The Stock Market Is Rigged But Investing The 3 Million You Won Off A Scratch Off Ticket In A Metamphetamine Ring Isn't Such A Smart Move Pal.

Some people kids, I swear.

$3M lottery winner invested money in crystal meth ring

A man who won $3 million on a scratch-off lottery game last year in Waycross, Georgia, invested all of his winnings in a crystal meth trafficking ring, federal prosecutors say.
Ronnie Music, Jr, 45, plead guilty to federal drug trafficking and firearm charges during a plea hearing last week. Evidence presented in the case suggested Music worked with a group to gain access to and distribute methamphetamine throughout Georgia.

The words fucking moron come to mind.

Buy This Man A Beer For Speaking Truth To Power

This genteleman is a little farther North of me but still in my neck of the woods.
I see he addressed this letter to the two female Congress critters that are in this area too.

I know damn good and well they didn't read it and that he got the old form letter reply from a staffer but this pretty much lays it all out there. Take a few minutes and read this.

This is really a great letter. I am most impressed by the fact the gentleman that wrote it signed his name and address to it.

This came from a Democrat much to my surprise! I read it and it certainly hits the nail where it would hurt. Google has the letter posted on their web site. This is well written ....... and should be read by everyone in these United States! It will be well worth the three minutes it requires to read this. It is quite impressive.

You can be Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Independent or Libertarian and I'll bet this will hit a nerve. Our country is in real trouble. This gentleman is obviously quite a bit smarter than the two senators he sent it to. All I can say is amen to everything he said.

Senator Patty Murray
Senator Maria Cantwell
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senators:

I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important - honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.

Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us

Last year, the president spent an estimated $1.4 billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $ millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America's answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the "perfumed princes and princesses" of our country.

In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. "Obamacare," a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.

You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the "one percenters," consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).

You understand very well the only two rules you need to know - (1) How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote ) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called "safety net" has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps - pretty much all Democrat voters - and the program is absolutely rife with fraud and absolutely no congressional oversight?

I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.

As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 -1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." I'm only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?

While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use, and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.

As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me "You'll just have to take a pill," while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.

The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go on line where many others will have the chance to read one person's opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.

I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $19 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.

My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy the country that I deeply love. You have put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power.

For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.

OK, Everybody Pitch In A Dollar

Because Daddy want!!

Hooooooooly sheep shit Batman, that is one bad little motherfucker.


The XM556 Microgun was designed at Empty Shell “one guy over the last two and a half years with no training, no college, just a GED” and it is what every American has dreamed of since he first saw Predator and watched the forest get melted by a minigun.

The XM556 is a new platform system that was designed from scratch by the ground up. The parts are not just a smaller imitation of the larger M134, but were designed on its own. An absolutely all new style of bolt was conceived and designed to eliminate current known issues with the M134. The bolts combined with many other improvements have been made to not only extend the life of the gun but reduce wear and reduce or eliminate stoppages.

H/T SurvivalBlog for the link.

And STAY Gone!

Little Billy Bad Ass squirrel don't want you here.

Gotta love whoever is running the camera, "let's turn back Poppa". Pussy.

On One hand, This Thing Is Pretty Cool And Well Built But.......

For the kind of money they want for it, why not just get a motorcycle?

$3200-$3800 for a motorized "Survival" bicycle?

I mean sure, you can pedal it if you have or want to but it looks heavy and the gear ratio to me looks like you would be pedaling your ass off to get anywhere.
Another thing I can't quite figure out is if there is any kind of clutch to disengage the pedals while you are motoring or are they flailing around like an egg beater from Hell all the time.

Still, it is pretty damn cool looking.

It also looks well built and sturdy.

I'm not seeing any kind of clutch mechanism here.

The rack is big enough to attach a pretty serious load to though..

And a 300 mile fuel range is pretty awesome on it's face but look where all that extra gasoline is sitting.
It's a rolling firebomb.

Wreck it hard enough and I'm pretty sure those saddle tanks will come right the hell off and leak gas all over the place. I don't know if there are isolation valves to shut the lines off.

But hey, if you have money and calories to burn it would be a neat little gizmo to have stashed in the garage.

For Zoomie

He will get this right away.

TSA Lead Agent Arrested For Taking Upskirt Video At SeaTac Airport.

He must have been taking a break from stealing peoples shit for a minute.

TSA agent suspended, arrested for upskirt video at Sea-Tac

SEA-TAC AIRPORT -- A Transportation Security Administration agent at Sea-Tac Airport has been arrested for taking upskirt video at the airport.

The 29-year-old man, described as a lead agent, was under surveillance on Tuesday after authorities got information that the agent was taking photos of female passengers' skirts.

The agent was on a break Tuesday morning and went down the escalators to the north train level, court documents say. A special agent with the TSA followed him.

The 29-year-old man walked to the baggage claim escalator and got behind a woman. The special agent saw the flashlight illumination on the man's phone, then saw the phone placed under the woman's skirt, according to court documents.

The agent saw the screen of the phone, which appeared to be videotaping under the woman's skirt, according to court documents.

He was arrested for voyeurism and booked into the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

His bail was set at $7,500.

In a statement the TSA said:

"TSA does not tolerate illegal, unethical or immoral conduct. When such conduct is alleged, TSA investigates it thoroughly. When appropriate, TSA requests that it be investigated by a law enforcement authority. When an investigation finds that misconduct has occurred, the appropriate action is taken."

The TSA has suspended the man without pay, and the case has been referred to the King County Prosecutor's Office.

Turkey's Erdogan Is Trying To Stop The Signal

He has some pretty smart people working for him, I'll give him that.
Shutting down the legal Ham Radio Network is a brilliant tactical move by this jerk of a Tyrant but I'm sure there will be a few, ahem, ahh, resistors who will find a way to pirate out what's going on over there anyway.

You can't stop the signal.

Turkey gouvernement revokes 3213 ham radio licenses


Turkey gouvernement revokes 3213 ham radio licenses
It has been confirmed by Supreme Council of radio and television of Turkey (RTUK) the news that Mr. Erdogan – the president of Turkey has revoked 3213 national ham radio licenses. The HF radio in Turkey is now silent. No transmissions are allowed.


Following the coup d’etat – of July 5th – many things are changing in Turkey. TV , Radio licenses have been cancelled and this involved also our colleagues : ham radio amateurs. The number of amateur radio operators in Turkey is not too much, but according to the site it looks like that around 3000 licenses have been revoked. Who’s transmitting outside turkey without licence should be considered a pirate – said Mr Erdogan.

The Supreme Council of radio and television of Turkey (RTUK) has cancelled the licenses of over 20 radio and television broadcasters as well ham radio operators.

The Telsiz ve Radyo Amatörleri Cemiyeti (TRAC) is the national non-profit organization for amateur radio enthusiasts in turkey. The TRAC was founded in 1962 as the Türkiye Radyo Amatörleri Cemiyeti, adopting its current name in 1980. It’s located in Istanbul, with branches in 44 locations across Turkey. TRAC is the national member society representing Turkey in the IARU. Now, it has been closed down.

We look forward to have news from Turkey ham radio league.

Turkey’s coup in numbers

21,000 private teachers have licences removed
15,000 suspended from education ministry
8,000 police officers detained or suspended
6,000 soldiers detained
1,500 staff at Ministry of Finance dismissed
3213 ham radio operators with license revoked.
2745 judges dismissed
1,577 deans – Education board demands resignation
492 sacked from Religious Affairs Directorate
399 from Ministry of Family and Social Policies stripped of responsibilities
257 fired from the prime minister’s office
100 intelligence officials sacked
47 district governors dismissed
30 provincial governors dismissed
20 news websites blocked

Looks like Erdogan is going all in on his bid to become the worlds newest dictator.

Shutting down a lot of communications avenues is his way of trying to control the narrative and shut off the flow of news of what is going on over there.
He also declared a state of emergency for the next three months.

It looks to me like he has gathered most of the ingredients to bake a full sized insurgency.
People don't like it when you pull shit like that.

On one hand, it's the smart move for a dick tater in the short run. In the long run, you can't stop the signal, ever.
Information will still be moved around, it will just take some imagination on some peoples part.

I'm sure it won't be long before there is an underground network set up complete with live feeds and video.

Foolish man.

Busy As Usual

I didn't get home from work until 3 O'Fuck in the morning last night.
Basically passed out in the recliner and then got woke up by the phone at 9:30. The dentist wants me to come in tomorrow and get an impression done, this is after I tried to get another appointment scheduled yesterday and they told me they didn't have any openings.
Funny how that works.....
I went back to sleep, woke up about 12:30 and had a cup of coffee.

Then I went out and helped the wife and kids load up about eight bags of rotten apples they had scraped up and threw them in the back of my rig and hauled ass to the dump. There is at least that much more going to be waiting for me tonight.

I just got back from the dump and now I am going to stuff some groceries down my throat and go to work again in about ten minutes.

Hit the blogroll, I ain't got time for this shit today obviously.

Thanks for stopping by though.

Right After I Get Some Teeth Fixed

Got a dentist appointment for the first time in a while. I had a previously fucked up tooth towards the front on top break off at the gumline. It's going to be expensive because it had a pin in it and I think the pin broke off too. That means oral surgery. I'll find out tomorrow what they say.

I've got some other ones that are fucked up too, I think I have had three split on me in the last year or so. This is going to be a lengthy and expensive kind of deal.

Remind me to tell you the horror stories some time, I have a dentist's playground in my mouth and I hate those fuckers with a passion.

A Quote That Is Especially Relevant Right Now

"War" is a condition in which your government tells you who the enemy is; "revolution" is when you figure it out for yourself.

Ed Watts

I certainly hope you have "figured it out" by now.

If you haven't then you will soon my friend.

In case you haven't noticed, things have gotten decidedly kinetic lately.

It's Monday, I'm Tired And I'm Grouchy

3 Police Officers Ambushed And Killed In Baton Rouge La., More Wounded

This seems to be breaking news as there aren't a lot of details in this article.

Three police officers shot dead in Baton Rouge, mayor says


Three police officers were shot to death and several others wounded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Sunday, the city's mayor said, as the country remained on edge in the wake of police shootings of black men and the killings of five Dallas officers.

The officers in Baton Rouge were responding to a call of shots fired when they were ambushed by at least one gunman, Mayor Kip Holden told NBC News. A gunman was shot but his condition was not clear, a Louisiana State Police official told NBC.

A spokesman for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office said police and sheriff's deputies were involved in the shooting incident. "Multiple officers from both agencies sustained injuries and were transported to local hospitals," he said in an email. He said there were no firm numbers on the number hurt or the extent of injuries.

While the scene of the shootings was contained, police warned residents to stay away from the area, near Airline Highway, which is a mile from the Baton Rouge Police Department headquarters, where dozens of protesters were arrested earlier this month..

Two nearby hospitals were on lockdown, CBS reported. Efforts to confirm the report were not immediately successful.

It seems this "War On Cops" has escalated.

Anybody reading this as surprised as I am?

I thought so.

One thing I haven't seen yet in any of these recent attacks is the police breaking out the vaunted MRAP's, yet.

Yes, Kids These Days Are THAT Fucking Stupid.

It's by design too.

If you are over forty this will probably amaze you unless you have kids that are this uneducated.

I stumbled on this Buzzfeed article that shows how 21 fruits and vegetables grow and I was like, kind of stunned that people don't know some of this stuff,

Our Grandparents would be laughing their asses off but it just goes to show how far away from the land modern civilization has strayed and it has ominous implications for the future of humanity in general.

If our descendants don't even know where their food comes from or what it looks like in it's natural state then they are at the mercy of the government who controls the growing and distribution of the food in this country.

There are people who think meat comes from the grocery store in neat little packages magically and that have no idea where fruit and vegetables come from either.

For example,

1. Asparagus grows STRAIGHT OUT OF THE GROUND and it’s kinda creepy.

And this one,

17. Celery grows straight out of the ground, too.

People these days literally do not know this stuff.

God forbid kids these days don't have a cell phone glued to their face but ask them where the food they eat comes from and all you get is a confused look.

Why, the grocery store of course.

I would bet a hundred dollars that you couldn't find me a city kid who would know what a rendering plant is and you could also be assured they would freak the fuck out when they found out what they do.

I briefly worked at a horse slaughtering plant once and there was a rendering plant right next door. On hot Summer days that fucker would gag you from a half mile away.

That's what all the cities in this country are going to smell like when the lights go out.

Still Trust The Media?


Former Fox News 


sentenced to prison 


 faking CIA ties

WASHINGTON - A man who has appeared on Fox News as a guest "terrorism analyst" was sentenced to 33 months in prison on Friday on charges that he fraudulently claimed to have been a CIA agent for decades, U.S. prosecutors said.

Wayne Simmons, 62, of Annapolis, Maryland, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement.

"Wayne Simmons is a fraud. Simmons has no military or intelligence background, or any skills relevant to the positions he attained through his fraud," said Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III also sentenced Simmons to serve three years of supervised release, to forfeit two firearms and $176,000 in criminal proceeds, and to pay restitution.

Simmons had appeared on Fox News, a unit of 21st Century Fox and the top-ranked U.S. cable television news network, as an unpaid guest analyst on terrorism since 2002.

Oh there's more, this guy was a busy fellow

So I guess you could say a bullshitter bullshitted a whole bunch of bullshitters.

And then they wonder why no one believes a fucking thing they say anymore....

For The Shit Talker

Of course it got back to me, this isn't a large community and yes, I do know exactly who I am talking to.

Can't say I'm not disappointed though, I tried to stay out of it.

If you have anything else to say, you know how to get in touch with me.

I'm sure I'll live without your approval of what I think or do either way.

The One Thing You Should Learn From The Coup Attempt In Turkey

Did you notice that the minute Erdogan heard what was going on that the first thing he did was get in his private jet and get the hell out of the country?

Do you think for one second that the politicians in this country won't do the same thing if they get the slightest wiff of personal danger?

You are SO on your own, citizen.

They don't give a fuck about you or anyone else.

Never forget that.

Now It's Art !

That Kind Of Stupid Is The Stuff Legends Are Made Of !

Funny it doesn't say if any of them were blonde, one just kind of assumes with ignorance this epic I guess.

Muskegon River tubing trip turns into overnight nightmare for three women

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – They left for what they thought would be an easy float down Muskegon River Tuesday afternoon – but ended up spending the night on the river bank, scared and yelling for help.

The trio of young women were rescued 20 hours later after a fisherman eventually heard their cries, said Muskegon Township Deputy Fire Chief Bob Grabinski.

The women, all in their 20s, had never been tubing before and decided it would be a fun thing to do, Grabinski said. So they bought some tubes and headed to the popular launch site at the Maple Island Road bridge, Grabinski said.

"They were informed by somebody at the bridge that the river goes in a circle and if they put in there they would come back to their car," he said. "Not knowing anything, they set off on their little adventure."

My emphasis.

20 something years old and don't know rivers don't run in circles.

Are you fucking kidding me.

Where in the fuck was Darwin is what I want to know.
He missed one hell of a good opportunity to pour some bleach in the gene pool here.

This reminds me of a stupid blonde joke I read somewhere years ago.

A blonde chick is walking across a big field and runs up against a fence. About forty feet away is another blonde sitting in a row boat in the middle of another field just rowing away.

The first one asks how she got out there and the one in the boat said it was a lot of work and that she should come join her to help out. The first blonde says she would love to but can't swim.....

Not All People Are Fooled By The Narrative

I'm going to post a couple of lengthy videos here that I would like you to take the time to watch and really listen to what these people are saying.

They are both videos posted by ladies.

Ladies who are pissed off at the very same things a lot of Americans are pissed off about.

Ladies who happen to be black, and who see the wrongness happening in our culture.

They are informed and they see through the narrative and the race baiters.

They see the MSM twisting the facts to suit the narrative of the Powers that Be.

They see the Divide and Conquer tactics that the race baiters are using to divide this country and they are pissed off too.

They hold people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the members of Black Lives Matter and Barack Obama's feet to the fire.

I applaud these ladies for having the courage to speak out and say what other people only think or are too afraid of Political Correctness to say out loud.

They aren't afraid and they want you to hear what they have to say.

So do I.

These two ladies are a hoot man, I would love to party with them for a while.

Boy, Do I Know That Feeling

I'm pretty much working five 10's lately, plus being on call and they aren't shy about calling me at two in the fucking morning either.

We are short handed, over worked and under paid.


I can't even remember the last time I got off work on time and there is no sign of them getting someone for the maintenance Graveyard shift that has been non existent for a year and a half now.

They would have to hire four people to fill all the positions enough to make a full crew.

I just got home and I am fucking tired man, Friday can't get here soon enough.
Even better, I think it's next week I start pulling twelves for a week.

Oh boy......

More Of This Please

I Love My Wife

She is a good woman, puts up with my ornery ass and makes me lunch every day too.

Sometimes I ask her to put something different in my lunch bag just to break up the monotony.
She usually makes me a couple of sandwiches, throws in a couple little bags of chips, some cookies and some of those little candy bars you get in a bag.
I also have here throw in one of those Cup'O'Soup things because every once in a while I like to have that with the sandwiches.
For that I have her throw in a plastic fork because of the noodles.
This is pretty much an every day thing and I don't eat it all usually because I am so busy. Stuff gets down in the bottom and stays there after a while like the candy bars and the plastic forks.

I have a buddy at work who also brings a lunch and I saw him bringing some pudding cups and decided that sounded pretty good so I had the wife get some of those to throw in.

She must have been in a hurry or something yesterday because when I got to work and started to get stuff out of lunchbox to eat, this is what I found.

Have I mentioned she is a blonde?

The Body Count Continues To Climb

Anyone else starting to see a trend here?

Police officer,

others shot outside

Michigan courthouse

Several people, including a police officer, were shot outside the Berrien County courthouse in the town of St. Joseph in southwest Michigan on Monday, according to reports on NBC and CNN, citing law enforcement.

Michigan State Police and the Berrien County Sheriff's Department, reached by telephone, confirmed there had been a shooting, but declined to give any details. No one answered the phone at the City of St. Joseph Public Safety Department.

The Summer of Our Discontent

Most people don't know it but there has been a revolution brewing in this country for the last several years.
It has gone unnoticed  because the MSM refuses to acknowledge it and our government has been lying it's ass off trying to make people believe that everything is normal.

Readers of this and all of the Blogs listed to the right here have been watching and preparing for it for years now, mentally, physically or both.

We have documented the abuses.
We have warned as many as we could.
We have spread as much useful information as possible.
We have prayed that it would never come to this.

Yet here it is.

All one has to do is read the headlines from this last week and start adding up just how many people were involved and I believe a reasonable person will come to the conclusion that we have reached a tipping point where the public has had enough and are demanding change, violently in some cases.

The genie is out of the bottle at this point with the assassination of those police officers down in Dallas Texas, the deliberate baiting and killing of another cop and the roadside shooting of yet another one all in the space of a few days.

The mounting number of people being killed and maimed by the police in this country has finally brought things to a head. Now it's eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth time.
The only thing surprising about that is that it took so long.

Unfortunately for the police, they are just pawns in the greater scheme of things and are expendable cannon fodder to the political elites in this country.
Oh, there will be the usual glorifying of the dead police officers but at the end of the day nothing will have changed. More are being trained as I type and the heavy weaponry is being dispersed.

This however, is just one aspect of what is going to prove to be a very bloody conflict.

Open hostilities and violence are just the beginning

To put in terms that no one can misunderstand, the shooting war has already started.

It's on baby.

 After the idiots in our government do what idiots in governments throughout history have done in these situations, crack down even harder to show the people just who the boss is, expect it all to blow up in everyone's face.
The elected officials in this country have proven themselves to be completely incompetent and so short sighted that looking into the future for them is not an option. Everything they do is a reaction to something.
They are also quite predictable.

The cherry on top of all this is of course the recent official acknowledgement that there are indeed two layers of law in this country by the Director of the FBI when he spelled out the case against Hillary Clinton in very clear terms showing a preponderance of guilt in her handling of top secret classified information and then telling us that there would be no charges filed.

In other words, as we have all long suspected, the law only applies to us dirt people and not to those with money and power.

There will be repercussions to that for generations to come.

So if this outbreak of civil disobedience and outright homicidal activity seems to have come out of nowhere and surprised you all I can say is that is is way past time that you started paying attention to what is going on in this country of ours.This has been coming for years now.

Start expecting the unexpected.
Stay away from crowds.
Stay armed at all times if possible and make sure you have a get Home Bag in your car for crying out loud.

Protesters completely blocked major highways in two different cities clear across the country from each other recently .
Expect more of that along with more protests in more cities.

Expect that Law Enforcement types are going to be as nervous as long tailed cats in a room full of rocking chairs with respect to their perceived threat level and there will be more people killed by the police in this country as they over react to every situation with deadly force.

An ill wind has been blowing for decades and now the perfect storm is upon us.

This is the Summer of Our Discontent and Summer just got started.

So has The Revolution.

Something To Really Think About, Hard

Karl Denninger's site is going dark, go read why and see if you don't find yourself nodding in agreement the whole time you are reading it.

I can distill it for you.

The Rule of Law is dead in this country.

That leaves only the Law of the Jungle.

Your teeth aren't big enough nor your claws sharp enough.

It is time to take care of you and your own like no one has seen in this country for 250 years.

I'm Beat, It's Caturday Edition

Fuck. I worked from 3 to 1:15 in the morning this morning, got home at about 1:35, collapsed into my recliner and twenty minutes later got called back in again.
I just got home, again, and am just flat tired.
That means there won't be a post tomorrow unless I do it now because I am going to be sleeping, hard.
Why a Caturday post?

Because when I walked up to the front door a few minutes ago I found a nice big dead rat sitting right in front of the door.
It wasn't there when I left.
Those two murderous felines have been busy again.
Last night, it was a dead bird they had drug in the house and deposited under my wife's chair in the computer room.
I didn't even get a chance to sit down before I had to go dispose of the little body. She was all grossed out.

Those two cats are something else man.
If it moves, it must die.
So here's a little something to show just how focused the little bastards can get when they are after something.
Go near the end to see it in Slow Mo,

I haven't seen any dead rabbits yet but there is a huge field a block and a half away from here so I imagine it's only a matter of time.

It's like Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom around here 24/7 with those fucking cats.

I can't believe there are that many damn rodents around here.

The MSM Seems To Be Stumped

Because the guy who shot a bunch of cops from a sniper position wasn't a white bitter clinger redneck they don't know what the fuck to say.

Fucked up their preferred narrative six ways from breakfast it did.

Snipers In Dallas Target Police At Anti Police Protest, Kill 5, Wound 5 More Plus One Civilian

I really don't know what I want to say about this.

I think I'm just going to link to the news articles I saw for the moment and wait for more details to emerge as I don't trust the MSM for shit anymore.

As it is, I just got home from work, I saw this story break while I was AT work and in the five minutes or so since I sat down here to see what's going on, I have seen 5 different headline updates and the story change three out of those 5.

It happens every time a major story like this breaks. They give you the basic idea of what has happened and then the speculation starts and then an agenda starts getting played.

If you trust any major news outlet in this country to give you the truth, you are an idiot.

This the latest update as of this moment, I fully expect this to change before I get up tomorrow.

BREAKING NEWS: SNIPERS OPEN FIRE ON DALLAS POLICE, KILLING AT LEAST 5 COPS AND WOUNDING AS MANY AS 6 MORE OFFICERS Suspected attacker reportedly dies from self-inflicted gunshot wound

DEVELOPING: A suspected sniper who was in a standoff with Dallas Police early Friday reportedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound hours after five officers were killed and several others were wounded in an attack targeting law enforcement officers during a protest march.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown said the suspect that was holed up in a downtown parking garage had exchanged gunfire with officers for 45 minutes and claimed "the end is coming", as well as saying that he had planted bombs across Dallas and wanted to hurt more officers.

KDFW-TV reported the suspect shot himself at around 2:15 a.m. local time.

From another source;

2 Snipers Ambush, Kill 5 Officers, Injure 6 in Dallas Following Peaceful Protest

Five officers are dead – four Dallas police officers and one DART transit officer – after two snipers ambushed and opened fire on police at the end of a peaceful protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings Thursday night, officials say.
One suspect is dead, a Dallas police detective tells NBC 5 early Friday morning, and three other suspects were in custody in connection with the shooting.

Yet another, beware the video autoplay.

11 Officers Shot, 5 Fatally, by Snipers Amid Dallas Protest; Standoff Underway

Eleven police officers were shot ambush-style, including five fatally, in Dallas Thursday night by at least two snipers, amid a protest against the recent police shootings of two black men, Alton Sterling in Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Minnesota, according to the Dallas Police.

The condition of the six wounded officers remains unknown. One civilian was also injured.

Officials said the gunmen aimed to kill as many officers as possible.

Among the officers killed, at least one was a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) officer. DART tweeted it was "grieving the loss" of Officer Brent Thompson, 43. Three other DART officers were injured: Omar Cannon, 44; Misty McBride, 32; Jesus Retana, 39. A DART spokesman said "they are expected to recover from their injuries."

I'm sure I will have formed some kind of opinion on this by tomorrow, I just want to see how this story morphs over the next 24 hours.

Now they are saying there might be some bombs involved also.

Let me update my thoughts here after a moment of thought after I hit the post button.

You will see and hear a complete shit storm from the Left starting by the time you read this calling for more gun control.

Count on it.

Quote of The Day

From my favorite cranky old hermit out in the desert, Joel.

This picture is priceless.

"We need to stop waiting for somebody on high to make us more free, and work on building our own individual freedom in a deliberately unfree world".

I think more people need to realize that the cavalry ain't coming and we are all on our own here.

FBI Recommends No Charges For Obvious Felony Criminal Clinton Email Scandal

The Rule of Law is OFFICIALLY dead.

If you had any last doubts about that you can lay them to rest.

It's time to get serious if you are a gun owner, time to get whatever it is you have been wanting all these years, before that woman gets handed the presidency.
 Because make no mistake, that's what this signals.

FBI recommends no prosecution in Hillary Clinton email case

The FBI is recommending that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton in connection with her email use while secretary of State, FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday.

“No reasonable prosecutor” would bring such a case, Comey said.

Although the FBI is not recommending charges, the FBI director did strongly criticize Clinton’s handling of classified information in her email, calling it “extremely careless.”

Comey’s statement removes the most serious threat that had hung over Clinton’s presidential campaign – the possibility of a criminal indictment – although his judgment of carelessness will surely resound from now until November.

Fuck Yeah

A Declaration of Independence for today

Bob Livingston says it better than I ever could, it's time for a new Declaration of Independence and he has whipped out his pen and done it for us.

About the only thing I can think of to add to it is this,

Enjoy your 4th of July holiday but don't ever forget that you are not free and never have been.

Reprinted with permission;

From my office, July 4, 2016.
My unanimous Declaration for the united States of America, (use of lowercase intentional; see original document)
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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these united States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of recent presidents, congresses and federal courts is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
  • They have created a host of  Laws, regulations, ordinances and statutes that are most unwholesome and contrary to the public good. Presidents have created laws with the stroke of a pen, congresses have ceded their authority under the Constitution to make law and declare war to both the president and bureaucrats, and the courts have created law from whole cloth and stricken down laws passed by the people, all contrary to the established Constitution.
  • They have forbidden Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation, till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
  • They have refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
  • They have labeled freedom-loving people as dissidents and enemies of the state and sought to have them disarmed.
  • They have endeavoured to prevent the population of these States, for that purpose establishing Laws for Admittance of Foreigners to act on their own behalf; refusing also to pass others to discourage their migrations hither, and raising the limits of foreigners imported.
  • They have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing to restrain the bureaucrats and by granting the Judiciary powers it does not possess.
  • They have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out our substance and spy on us, rifle through our bank accounts, scan our electronic correspondence, raid our homes and places of business, prevent the self-determination of land use, inspect our gardens and livestock pens, prevent us from determining what is good and proper for consumption and to steal our property.
  • They have kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies in the form of militarized and federalized police officers who steal our possessions in the name of the “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror,” who torture us and shoot us in order ensure their own safety; and have militarized a host government alphabet soup agencies with huge stockpiles of weapons and ammunition.
  • They have affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
  • They have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
    • For establishing crony Trade pacts with all parts of the world:
    • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
      For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
    • For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
  • For suspending laws passed by our own Legislatures and voted on by the people, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
  • They have abdicated Government here, by declaring illegal immigrants in his Protection and waging War against us through an intentional invasion of foreigners.
  • They are at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation, making war on other nations that have not attacked us and do not threaten us.
  • They and their minions have excited domestic insurrections amongst us.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have we been wanting in attentions to representatives in Congress. We have warned them from time to time about their attempts to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation from the federal leviathan, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
I, therefore, as a Representative of the people of the united States of America and the readers of Personal Liberty,  appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these states, solemnly publish and declare, That we are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the unlawful U.S. government, and that all political connection between them and the people, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Who will join me?
