California To Regulate Cow Farts?

These fucking people are too stupid to tie their own shoelaces.

California regulates cow farts

GALT, Calif. (AP) — California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm.

The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock.

by Taboola

Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.

Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure.

"If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming," said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report.

Since the passage of its landmark global warming law in 2006, California has been reducing carbon emissions from cars, trucks, homes and factories, while boosting production of renewable energy.

In the nation's largest milk-producing state, the new law aims to reduce methane emissions from dairies and livestock operations to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030, McCarthy said. State officials are developing the regulations, which take effect in 2024.

"We expect that this package ... and everything we're doing on climate, does show an effective model forward for others," McCarthy said.

Sniff sniff, is that a fart or a giant money making opportunity that I smell?

You might want to look into buying some stock in this while you can still afford it......

Are You A Moron?

Odds are in this country, if you aren't, the person next to you is.
We are completely surrounded by morons on a daily basis.

Another Milestone In The Books For Me

Ten thousand hits in one week.

I have been flirting with that high mark for months now, teasing my ass every week but always coming up just shy.
It was finally there this morning.

I started blogging at another site ten fucking years ago last March.

Ten years of Blogging is a long damn time.

Ten thousand hits in one week is a lot of hits for a podunk little outfit like this.

I can't thank you enough for that.

Now excuse me if I do a little excessive celebrating in the end zone for a moment, will ya?

Yep, It's Been One Of Those Days

The kid came home from work at three in the morning last night and informed us that he had hit something in the road where there was some construction going on and it had flattened both tires on the passenger side of the wife's car.

That means he drove home on those flat tires. Even better, it bent both fucking rims on the passenger side of the car.

He was about a half mile from home so I guess at that point he decided to pull a Hillary.
What difference does it make at this point?

So I spent the better part of my day running all over Portland trying to find a couple of rims for the fucking thing.

No dice.

It seems that in 2004, Ford in it's infinite wisdom, decided to upgrade the wheels on the Focus.
Up to that point they had been 14 inch wheels. I found at least twenty of those.
No more.
They went with 15 inch wheels and in true Ford style, put an off beat bolt pattern in them. 4 lug, 4 X 4 1/4" spacing instead of 4 X 4" inch like everyone else.

I also discovered that in the 25 years since I used to haunt virtually every fucking wrecking yard in the Portland/Metro area, that 85% of the ones I remember have gone out of business and the remaining few are closed on Saturday now.

Needless to say this was news to me. Back in the day, Saturdays were the busiest day of the week at most junk yards. All the guys who had to work all week hauled their asses down to get the parts they needed on Saturday morning and then wrenched all day Saturday and Sunday if necessary to keep their daily drivers on the road.
My how times have changed. Not only that, the one outfit that I did find open that wasn't a U- Pull it yard told me they could get the wheels in on Monday from another yard across the fucking state somewhere and when I asked them to get on the Hot Line and see if anyone else had them locally, they guy looked at me like I was from another planet.
Some older gent in the office heard me ask about it and said that the Hot Line was long gone.
Talk about making me feel even more ancient.

I told them I would get back to them if I couldn't find some somewhere else.

Guess what I get to do Monday?

Apparently the very first thing to disappear off a car at the wrecking yard is the wheels and tires.
I did manage to find a doughnut spare to fit the sonofabitch finally.

I came home three and a half hours after leaving and rousted that fucking kid and held a little workshop on changing tires on the side of the road.
His don't give a fuck attitude didn't sit well as you can well imagine.

No hydraulic jack for you then, young assholio. I know how to play the game.

I made him dig the spare out of the car, the scissor jack and the lug wrench and jack the fucking thing up the hard way, twice.

He didn't have a clue how any of it worked but he does now by God.

I made him take the back one off and put the spare that came with the car on, then swap the front one out for the one I bought.
I was going to make him swap the other rear tire to the front but it started raining and I didn't feel like standing there getting soaked while supervising his dumb ass.
I got enough of that yesterday spending three hours cleaning the gutters in the rain.

Then I made him throw the bent wheels and blown out tires in the back of my rig and haul her snow tires out of the shed and put them in the trunk.
I should get the wheels by next Wednesday and then I'll deal with getting it all swapped out and have the front and rear alignment checked at the same time. I'm crossing my fingers he didn't bend a lower control arm or a tie rod end.

I can't wait to get this kid his own car so I can sit and laugh at him when he fucks his own shit up because I been there and done that so many times I lost count.
Back in the 80's I went through 29 cars in 10 years. Wrecked every fucking one of them at least once and for almost all of them, once was enough.
As in totalled.

I literally can not remember just how many cars I have owned anymore and the reason I became a mechanic in the first place was because I couldn't afford to pay anyone to fix the shit I fucked up so I had to learn to do it myself.

Sonny boy is in for a steep learning curve at this rate.
Newer cars are a motherfucker to work on compared to the ones I learned on.

Fidel Castro Is Dead

Damn, that guy was around a long fucking time.

Maybe his brother will see the light and try something different now.

Fidel Castro dead: Cuban television

Fidel Castro, the Cuban revolutionary leader who built a communist state on the doorstep of the United States and for five decades defied U.S. efforts to topple him, has died, Cuban television said on Saturday. He was 90.

(Reporting by Marc Frank; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)

The MSM still isn't reporting on this.

They ought to be ashamed of themselves when a fucking Blogger scoops them.
They use Reuters too and that's where I got it from.

Finally, ten minutes later the news starts trickling out.

The Real Reason We Eat Turkeys On Thanksgiving

Self defense!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving.

That's What I'm Talking About

I have mentioned a few times how much I miss my Grandmother's cooking. My Mom's Mom.
That woman cook cook up a storm I'm tellin' ya and it seems that's what she did all day off and on in between washing dishes by hand and doing other chores.

This picture is not too far from the truth.

Home made biscuits with home made gravy, every freakin' day. Eggs how ya wanted 'em, by the carton.
Bacon, sausage, ham, toast, Fried potatoes, coffee, milk, orange juice or Tang, sometimes even pork chops. You want Cream of Wheat or Oatmeal?
Sit down there and butter the toast.
She whipped up a five course meal for breakfast damn near every day for years.
I have always been skinnier than a toothpick and sometimes I used to think Granny took it as a personal challenge to try and fatten me up.

You would be surprised at how many groceries I can get around and stay so skinny. I have sharp elbows too.

She would completely cover the table with food and everyone would dig in.
She used to tell me all the time, "Boy, if you're bashful around here, you're going to be hungry".

I'll never forget the time there was only one pork chop left on the plate and I could see my Uncle eyeballing it at the same time I was.
I reached over and snatched that sucker up with my hand at the same time he came in from above with his fork to spear it.
I got there first but got the fork right to the back of the hand.

That was an especially delicious pork chop.

She made pinto beans like I have only ever had one time since she died thirty five years ago and that was in a little Mom and Pop restaurant in a podunk little town in Tennessee that we went to when my Grandfather died back in 1999.
A little burg called Trezevant.
I have looked all over for years to find that recipe and have never duplicated it.

Those were the most delicious beans you ever had in your life.
Almost soupy. It was some combination of spices she put in it that I have never been able to duplicate and trust me, I have tried.
I've come close before but I'm still missing something.
It's a damn secret that no one seems to know and like I said, I have looked for years.
It appears to be specific to that region of Tennessee because that's where they came from.

Damn, I miss that woman.


That just looks nasty.

Maybe if you put some onions and jalapenos on it though.....

Trump Not Going After Clinton Doesn't Surprise Me In The Least

I don't why anyone else should be either.

Trump is finding out that he isn't the one who runs the joint.
He is just another front man and will do as he is told just like all the rest.

Anyone who expects anything different needs to wake the fuck up.

Trump will not pursue charges against Clinton, aide says

President-elect Donald Trump will not pursue charges against Hillary Clinton relating to the Clinton foundation or the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Conway said that while Clinton “has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest and trustworthy,” it would be a good thing if Trump can “help her heal.”

"I think when the President-elect, who's also the head of your party…tells you before he's even inaugurated he doesn't wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content,” she said.

The move is a significant break from Trump’s campaign rhetoric, which included a warning that if he were president he’d get his attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate her behavior. In the second presidential debate he quipped to Clinton that if he was president: “you’d be in jail.”

Cries of “lock her up” were a common feature at Trump’s campaign rallies.

Conway also indicated that there were a number of things Trump was looking at as president-elect that may differ from his campaign rhetoric.

“Look, I think he's thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the President of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign aren’t among them," she added.

Trump's decision not to pursue charges against Clinton would not prevent congressional Republicans from opening investigations and referring them to the Justice Department for charges.

Trump expanded on his decision at a meeting with reporters at the New York Times Tuesday afternoon, telling them "I think it would be very very divisive for the country" to prosecute the Clintons, although he hadn't taken it off the table entirely.

So what should you take from this?

It's business as usual in Washington D.C..

The honeymoon is over before it got started, deal with it and go right back to the reality that this is a deeply divided country and that you are on your own Jack.

Just be thankful like I am that that psychotic bitch isn't the President elect and won't be pulling the levers of power in an official context anytime soon. We dodged a bullet with that and for that I am grateful. There is a lull in the fighting so take advantage of it.
She is free to continue on her little way to plunder whomever she can and gets to keep her Clinton Foundation racket for the time being.

As for me, I voted for Trump as a Fuck You to the system but that was the only expectation I had from the get go.
It is back to my regular scheduled programming of Beans, Band Aids and Bullets like none of this ever happened.

I treat the political shenanigans in this country as the fucking Soap Opera that it is.

The doe eyed innocent believer in justice that I was as a child died a horrible death a long time ago.

Before I hit puberty as a matter of fact.

It's been a battle for survival ever since and seeings how I am closer to sixty than I am fifty anymore all I can say is that it is still my number one priority and these reindeer games back in Mordor on the Potomac mean very little to me in my day to day struggles in the first place.

7.3 Earthquake in Japan Again, Fukushima Residents Urged To Get The Fuck Out

My question is why is anyone still living around that nuclear shit storm nightmare in the first place?

7.3 magnitude quake hits Japan, Fukushima residents urged to flee

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 hit northern Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, issuing tsunami advisories for much of the nation's northern Pacific coast.

The epicenter of the earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km, the agency said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

They Must Be Ice Skating In Hell Today

Because I actually had to go inside one of these today.

Oh no no no no, not for me mind you, for my Sister In Law.

This is the second time I have had to go down there and haul some shit she wanted from that place but this time the crap was fucking heavy so I had to go in that hive of yuppie scum and hipster douchebags and help her get it on the cart and then into my rig.
Then it was the forty mile round trip to her place to haul it upstairs.
Well, she got it. Some kind of massive damned entertainment center that is six feet long.

I have put that kind of shit together and I can honestly say that I don't care for it. It will give her something to do and her and her kid can get it slid into place once it's together, hopefully.

Metric fucking screws with Allen heads made out of Pot Metal. They strip out if you just look at them sideways.
God forbid you ever use a fucking cordless drill on that shit.
You will be down at the hardware store before you can say God dammit.
Most of that crap even says right in the directions not to use power tools putting them together.
Instead, they oh so thoughtfully give you some childs toy of a short handled Allen Wrench to do it with.
Not only are the fasteners made out of butter, everything is made out of pressboard.
You know, sawdust and glue, poured into a mold and then pressed to a fare thee well.
That shit chips out if you cough on it, let alone try to move some heavy assed contraption bolted together with tinker toy parts.

My wife buys that kind of furniture too and it drives me nuts.

It's modern and all that shit.

Fuck that.
I want real furniture. Shit that was made with real, solid wood by people who knew what the fuck they were doing and was made to last generations.
I don't give a rats ass if it is "trendy".

My favorite kind of furniture is Mission Style or Craftsman style.

Those pieces were made to be functional and are of an aesthetically pleasing design.
They are also heavy but that is because they are made out of solid wood and it ain't spindly from the get go.

You want an entertainment center?

is an entertainment center.

It will involve spending enough money to buy a cheap used car and also require three full grown men and a boy to move and install it.

You get that sucker where you want it on the first shot because it is fucking staying there.

This is just my personal opinion of course, everybody has their own idea of style.
Mine just involves a more practical flavor.

The Key Words Here, "Heavily Modified".....

I still want to see the radar guns calibration paperwork because I find it hard to believe any Ford product can go over 200 miles an hour without a full crew of NASCAR engineers nearby.

Oklahoma speeder caught at 208 mph

An Oklahoma man was arrested on Saturday, Nov. 12, after leading police on a 208 mph chase.

Nineteen-year-old Hector Fraire first tripped a radar gun doing 84 mph on the Kilpatrick Turnpike in Oklahoma City, before speeding away as police tried to pull him over.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Fraire’s heavily modified 2011 Ford Mustang was then clocked doing 176 mph and 208 mph, and he tried to elude the chase vehicle by turning off his headlights and brake lights.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman tells that as the pursuing officer lost contact with the vehicle, he radioed ahead to any units in the area. A Canadian County Deputy sitting in a parking lot spotted the car and was able to intercept it. The driver then pulled over, dropped his keys out of the window, and was arrested and later charged with reckless driving and felony eluding.

With a helpful picture of what a 19 year old Hector with WAY too much money looks like.

It makes me wonder just what it cost the young man to get his car back out of impound and just how many miles had been added to the odometer.

Thousands Of Americans Pledge To Side With Muslims On Website Amid Talks Of Registry

Worded another way, thousands of Americans have absolutely no idea what Islam is really all about, are too stupid to breathe without being reminded.
Fucking morons.

On website, thousands of Americans pledge to side with Muslims amid talk of registry

By Sebastien Malo
NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Thousands of Americans have pledged online to stand in solidarity with Muslims in the United States amid suggestions from President-elect Donald Trump's camp that he is mulling a national registry for immigrants from Muslim countries.

On Friday, more than 13,000 people had signed a pledge on website Register US, promising to register as Muslims in the event of a national Muslim database being rolled out, so as "to stand together with Muslims across the country."

The online movement reflects a divided nation in the aftermath of Trump's presidential election win, that followed a campaign marked by hardline rhetoric on immigration.

In a Reuters interview this week, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who media reports say is a key member of Trump's transition team, said a group advising Trump on immigration could recommend the reinstatement of a national registry of some Muslim immigrants and visitors who enter the United States on visas from countries where extremist organizations are active.

However, Jason Miller, communications director of Trump's transition team, said in an emailed statement to the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Friday that "President-elect Trump has never advocated for any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion, and to imply otherwise is completely false."

Many among those who took the pledge on Register US's website posted on Twitter a message, prepared by the group, detailing their intentions.

"If Trump requires Muslims to register with the government, I pledge to register as Muslim too," the message said.

Twitter user Sam Martin, from Florida, was among thousands who voiced his support for the initiative.

"If anyone'(s) name is entered into a database driven by GOP/Trump bigotry, this is how I say, 'It's wrong to do this!'," he wrote in a comment on Twitter.

Registering Muslims in the United States has been likened to the U.S. government's internment of Japanese-Americans in camps during World War Two - for which an official apology was later issued - and with Nazi Germany's laws that required Jews to register with authorities.


Register US co-founder, Rebecca Green, who works in brand marketing in New York City, said she was encouraged by the public's response since launching the website with two friends earlier this week.

"We see this effort as a plea to American values to not become the kind of country that keeps lists based on religion," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in an email.

"Nothing is more anti-American than a registry based on religion."

2,065 American citizens were unavailable for comment.

Yeah It's Friday Baby!!

Long time coming this week.

Trump Administration Appointees To Be Barred From Lobbying For 5 Years After Leaving Government Service

It's a start.
I'm not holding my breath for Trump to perform any miracles once he gets into office but there are a few things I would like to see and this is one of them. Quit allowing these fucking people to not only get rich from the revolving door bullshit but also stop them from being able to influence policy while they are doing it.
You work for the government for the betterment of the country, not to line your pockets selling favors to lobbyists.

Trump transition team announces five-year lobbying ban for appointees

Appointees to President-elect Donald Trump's administration will be asked to sign a form barring them from being a registered lobbyist for five years after they leave government service, officials announced Wednesday -- following up on the D.C. outsider's pledge to "drain the swamp."

Republican National Committee chief strategist Sean Spicer said on a conference call with reporters that the prohibition would help to ensure people won't be able to use government service "to enrich themselves."

In addition, Spicer announced that Trump transition team members would be barred from lobbying about the issues they had worked on for six months after their departure. He did not immediately explain how either ban would be enforced.

The new Trump transition policy is one of several aimed at curbing the influence of lobbyists. During the presidential campaign, Trump vowed to institute a five-year lobbying ban for all departing members of Congress and their staff, in addition to executive branch officials.

His White House predecessors have made similar promises.

Muslim Loving Race Baiter "Barack Obama warns of rise of 'crude nationalism'"

This from the clown who has been deliberately doing his level best for the past eight years to "fundamentally" destroy this country from within.
Fuck off Barry. There is a tidal wave of resentment washing up on your front doorstep and the writing is on the wall at the high water mark.

This is just one more reason Donald Trump blew the SS Clinton out of the water.
The same thing is going to happen in France and Germany, you watch.

Barack Obama has warned of a "rise in a crude sort of nationalism" following the Brexit and US presidential votes.
Speaking in Greece on his final foreign trip, he said: "We have to guard against... tribalism built around an 'us' or a 'them'."
He said the US was painfully aware of the danger of divisions "along lines of race or religion or ethnicity".

I'll just let his past actions speak for themselves.

Im' Gonna Be All Fucked Up

Starting in on the 12 hour shifts today.
As if that isn't bad enough, they are fucking up my daily schedule in a big way to do it. Normally Swing shift is 3 PM to 11 PM.
Now I am going in at 6 PM and working until 6 AM.
That pretty much throws my 24 hour schedule off by one third.
I am going to be dragging ass and useless, some genius thinks this is a great idea too.
On top of that we get some NFG ( New Fucking Guy ) who is very young and has no idea of what is going on we are going to have to watch.

My Inner HillBilly Will Not Be Denied

I'm tellin' ya, the older I get, the more it comes clawing to the surface and the more it manifests its self.

I did have real, live, Ozark Mountain HillBilly's in my family tree, I met some of 'em once.
My Mother and her side of the family were all from down South. Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Georgia, all over the damn place back there.
My Grandfather was from Tennessee and moved back there after my Grandmother died. He is buried back there somewhere now.
He is where I get this Tinkering gene from.

The man was a mechanical genius, natural born.
He built a portable Gold shaker once from scratch after seeing a picture of one in a magazine. It had a water pump on it and a motor driven shaking platform on it with two wheels and handles on it to roll it down by the creeks he used to work.
He was a Mill Wright by trade but he built houses from the dirt lot to the roof by himself in his spare time and then flipped them. I don't think there wasn't anything that man could not fix or get to run if it was supposed to.
I will never forget the time he drug home this old nasty and moss covered tractor that had been sitting out in field on the Oregon coast for years and years.
I mean this thing had an inch of moss on the engine cover, what was left of it.

He messed with that thing and messed with it for weeks. Tore the carburator off and rebuilt it and got the engine all cleaned up and ready to go but he just couldn't get any spark out of the magneto.
The man was the epitome of stubborn though.

One day he was working on that thing after Grandma had made one of her six course breakfasts she was so famous for and had cleaned up the kitchen. She had about an hour or so before she started in on Supper.
Ol' Grandpa yanked the magneto off that tractor and snuck in the kitchen with it when she was watching her soap operas or something because she most certainly didn't see him do it.
He turned the oven on low and stuck that magneto in there and run back outside real quick.

All was quiet for about an hour , he was out wrenching on the damn thing and Granny was watching her General Hospital or whatever it was.
Pretty soon she gets up and heads into the kitchen to start in again and notices the oven was on.

I was sitting at the table with my thumb up my ass as usual and she asks me why the oven is on.
I may be a lot of things but stupid aint one of 'em.
I told her I had no idea.

So she grabs an oven mitt and yanks the oven door open and The Shit, Hit The Fan.

She didin't know what it was but it damn sure didn't belong in her oven and she instinctively knew it had to be something off that tractor.
Now neither of my Grandparents EVER, cussed. They were Old School and that was just something you didn't do.
Except this day.


I'm sure even the neighbors heard that one.

Oh she was hot man.
She is cussing and slamming shit down on the counters and pretty soon here comes Grandpa, like two seconds later.
He grabs her oven mitts and yanks that magneto out of the oven and takes off running before she even knew what had happened almost. That REALLY pissed her off, taking the oven mitts.

Now she is after his ass boy.

She has her rolling pin in her hand and is out the door after him.
He is busy juggling that hot magneto back and forth in his hands and here she comes.
He run around the back side of the tractor and she is out there yelling at him and waving that rolling pin around trying to get a shot at him.

He took off out back towards the shed but she was satisfied that he got the message and grabbed up her oven mitts, turned around and give a good glare in the direction he had fled and stormed back into the kitchen.

I was laughing so hard my sides hurt but I was well out of swinging distance too.

Pretty soon Grandpa pokes his head out of the shed to see if the coast is clear and runs over to the tractor and starts throwing that magneto back on.
I went back in the house and Granny was still fuming and banging the cookware around when all of a sudden I hear that tractor engine turning over and it fired up.

The old guy was pretty cagey about the whole thing but that did the trick.
It had gotten moisture in it from sitting out in the weather for all those years and he got it hot enough to dry it out.

I'll never forget that scene as long as I live.

So now you know, I was born and raised out here on the West Coast but I have HillBilly in my blood and it won't be denied.
So in Grandfathers honor, I went out and bought a piece of shit Walking Tractor, just like one of the several he had back in the day.

Know what?
It's been sitting for so many years the damn wheels have rusted clear through and....
it has a magneto on it.

Now you know why that memory came flooding back after all these years.

Goin' To See A Man About A Mule

Don't ask me why.
Maybe because I remember my Grandfather fucking with them and then me getting to play with them out in the garden, maybe because I am an idiot. It's about a 25/75 combo more than likely. My memory ain't that good and I can damn sure be an idiot sometimes.

I saw it on Craigslist for $50 and it's just a few miles away.
These things are getting pretty hard to find anymore that don't cost ya an arm and a leg.
It's in rough shape, I do know that already, the wheels are rusted through for one thing but the motor ain't froze up and it's an old Wisconsin.
I bet it's been twenty years at least since I worked on one of those.
I'm supposed to go pick it up in the morning.

We Got A Glimpse Into Societal Breakdown Behavior Yesterday,This Is Why You Do Not Have Enough Preps.

Tens of thousands of Butthurt Liberals protested in 25 cities yesterday, most of of them peaceful but some not so much.

In Portland they took to an increasingly popular tactic of shutting down two major freeways and the Light Rail commuter lines.

They shut down a freeway in LA also.

In Oakland they got violent right away.

Over a hundred and twenty five people were arrested across the country in these demonstrations, there was vandalism and lots of general assholery.

Because they don't like Trump.

Talking with the wife last night, neither of us could remember running downtown to light shit on fire and block traffic after Obama won the second time around.

TENS OF THOUSANDS, shutting down freeways and blocking traffic, because they were unhappy about an election.

I can get that to a certain point but not on the scale that I am seeing here.

Now lets do a little thought exercise.

Take a minute and imagine what these same peoples reaction would be if say, the delivery trucks stopped running to a certain city because they have the freeways shut down. It would take a couple of days but they would notice the effects soon enough.

Or the electricity went off for a week.

Or a major earthquake hit.

You get the idea.

How are these people going to react when it is a life or death situation?

If this is any indication then I am telling you that you aren't and can't be prepared enough for it unless you don't live anywhere near a major population center and have a very deep larder.

These Americans are one step away from being savages and there is your evidence.

Shut down the EBT system in this country for a week and you will be able to see the cities burning from space.

No Caption Needed

Oh yeah, it's everywhere this morning.

Certain Disaster Averted In Historic Election

I just got done watching Donald Trumps acceptance speech as President Elect.

The House and the Senate are also in Republican hands after this election.

All night long I was sneaking outside to catch enough signal on my phone to stay up with the election results.

Once again I have witnessed the political pendulum make a full circuit back and forth.

I won't mince words here, it's not my style to begin with. If Hillary Clinton had won that election it would have been the end of America as we know it.
It's already almost unrecognizable for people my age and older from how it was when we were born and raised.
She would have finished it off.

I'm also a realist.
Donald Trump is in no way the second coming or the cavalry riding to the rescue.

Donald Trump is not our savior, Donald Trump is the biggest blunt instrument we could get our hands on to bludgeon some serious assholes with.

We are sick and fucking tired of getting the same shit sandwiches every damn day like we have been getting for the last decade or so and now here's a couple of lumps on the head to get your attention.
Enough is enough.

The talking heads on the television were all stunned into silence last night. You could see the uncertainty and distaste on their faces.
After all the dirty tricks, biased media hit jobs and everything but the kitchen sink they threw at Trump, he won anyway.

I hope that someone in the Trump administration was keeping track of all of that.
You can bet your ass that the MSM who were so rabidly Anti Trump just yesterday will be talking out the other side of their mouths tomorrow.

We certainly live in interesting times, we all just witnessed history being made last night.
I'm betting it is going to get even more interesting in the next few months.
There is still plenty of time for Obama and his wrecking crew to throw a few fucks into the works but at least we don't have to worry about Hillary and her version of hell on earth being crammed down our throats anymore.
I can't tell you what a relief that is.

Because Fuck That Bitch, That's Why

Not only should Hillary Fucking Clinton not be running for president, she should damn well be in jail and everyone including the fucking Director of the FBI knows it.

If they install that woman in the highest office we have then as far as I'm concerned this Republic is dead, stinking and buried.
Either way after tonight, it's game on for the fact that we are even in this position shows without question our government is rotten to the core.

What they don't seem to comprehend is that all this lawlessness is not their exclusive domain.

Man Overboard!

Hope that chainsaw sucked up a bunch of water and died right away.

It's Still Funny After All These Years

You can almost guarantee the girl has a brother. I can remember pulling that shit on my little brother back in the day.

Well That Made My Ass Pucker Up

Went back to the dentist again this morning to have the rest of my teeth cleaned.
It's such a joy.
Multiple shots of novacane just for starters and then the pretty little thing got serious.
An hour later and my gums are still bleeding.
So far I haven't dribbled coffee down the front of my shirt but that's only because I am taking baby sips.
I can't feel half my face.

After this final round of torture I got to talk to the dentist , they call it a "consultation", it's more like negotiating with a car salesman in my opinion.
To see just how fucked up my teeth are, take a gander at this mess.

That be a dentists playground there my friends.

Needless to say these are not my favorite people to begin with.
So I had what I thought was a fairly close estimate of what this guy wants to fix all my teeth in the back of my mind when he hands me an itemized list of all the shit he wants to do along with the price for each item.

From past experience with these guys I figured about $8,000 easy.
Oh no no no no.
I was waaaay off.
Two thirds off.


That's when my ass puckered up.
It's a good thing I was sitting down.

I took a glance at this long list of wants and laughed right in his face. I'm sure he was expecting it too.
Dude, this is a down payment on a house.
There is no way I am doing all this.

He is talking bone grafts and implants and crowns and all kinds of happy shit.

Yeah right.
I have two teeth that need to be pulled because they are shot, one in front that is broken off at the gum line that needs to be pulled and an implant hammered in and a couple of teeth that had root canals done on them and just stuffed with fillings instead of having crowns put on because of cost. Those are bad because they are cracking. No support in the middle, the crowns are actually functional for support.
One of the teeth that needs pulling is on the bottom right side in the back and it is sensitive as hell. I can't chew anything even remotely solid on it or it lights up like a neon sign.

He only wants $160 to yank a tooth

After looking at the list and running some numbers in my head I told him that I will live with the sensitive tooth for now and if it gets so bad I can't stand it anymore that I will just pay out of pocket to get it yanked out. It's been bad for a couple of years already and I have learned what not to do with it. Then we will do one crown in the back on top on the other side so that I at least have two teeth that I can grind on and then we will go from there.
None of this is going to happen until after the first of the year anyway, just the deep cleaning of all my teeth went over the total cost of what my insurance will pay FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.

I am kicking myself for not staying on top of this but there was a period of about three years when I didn't have dental insurance and my hatred of these people just caused me to ignore the mounting problems after I did get some.
So now I get to pay.
Some here and some there.
I will do what the insurance covers and as little as possible on top of that.
As long as I have a couple three functional chompers I am good with it.
It ain't like I was ever a pretty boy anyways.
