Agreeing With The Times

Posted: October 4, 2015 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah

First, I’m not linking that hatebait article (as Ace called it) about what it means to be a modern man, but I will agree with it.

That’s what modern men are. pantywaist metrosexuals whose hearts flutter at actually have to act like a man.

As Ace said long ago, a symptom is how supposed adults do not drink adult drinks, they drink sweet crap. Coffee has become mocha, caramel, candy-ccino. Adults no longer drink brown liquor, unless it’s Fireball. Cocktails are now sickly-sweet appletinis, something made with UV candy-flavored vodka or sweet rum.

There are men left, but they’re the minority anymore when most of the ‘men’ are raised in a culture where being a boy is a mental-disorder. Or at least, that’s the way it looks to me after living in mostly lefty areas. In AZ, I’ve seen more men. Except where I live. Apache Junction is the joke of the greater Phoenix metropolitan area. I drove a taxi at night here and I saw a lot of coyotes and tweakers. 30 year old ‘men’ with multiple kids not working, just doing drugs. My neighbor, whose parents pay his rent, whores out his wife to the local meth dealer for their fix. She’s the one who was having a kid because she doesn’t collect social security anymore, they took the kid as soon as it was born. She was tweaking while pregnant. So sad.

That’s the reasons why so many millenials are still living at home, they’re either drug addicts or they’re too busy with X-box, fantasy-football and making sure they go out drinking Friday and Saturday night to actually get a job that might cut into World of Warcraft time.


The second thing I agree with the NY Times, if not its readership, is this article on recycling. linked by John Tierney at the Puppy Blender’s.

In 1996, I wrote a long article for The New York Times Magazine arguing that the recycling process as we carried it out was wasteful. I presented plenty of evidence that recycling was costly and ineffectual, but its defenders said that it was unfair to rush to judgment. Noting that the modern recycling movement had really just begun just a few years earlier, they predicted it would flourish as the industry matured and the public learned how to recycle properly.

So, what’s happened since then? While it’s true that the recycling message has reached more people than ever, when it comes to the bottom line, both economically and environmentally, not much has changed at all.


Most recycling costs more in energy than making the thing new would. Plastic bags are not bad and paper is a renewable resource. Paper companies have been in business for a century or more, they know they have to plant as many trees as they use or they’ll be out of business.

Oh well, we are in a time when actually knowing anything is bad, believing the currently popular fad is much more important and  a social good.

Like when Stephen Den Beste tried to explain why alternative energy crap was a scam, as soon as someone declares they’re saving the planet you must believe them, support them and even lie for them.

They’re saving the planet after all.

So… Veeshir wholeheartedly agreeing with the NY Times Funniest End of Civilation Ever! material?

You bet, but even if not, I’d practice keeping a straight face while you give your “Repenting Your Sins” speech just in case. It won’t work if you burst out laughing or even smile as you reminisce.


For The Boss

Via Say Uncle, we have the most tacticool pistol of all time: The Bren Ten.


From the article

Unfortunately, a combination of production quality problems, inadequate magazine design, preorders, and other issues led to the company quickly falling into tough financial straights. The guns were only manufactured for about 2 years before bankruptcy ended production. Some had been shipped without magazines, and Bren Ten magazines remain a sought-after commodity today.

Shaving is, of course, optional.

Ed Driscoll coblogging at the Puppy Blender‘s (he’s up and down, I usually don’t agree with much he writes) links this Telegraph article by Daniel Hannan (who I often agree with, so he’s smart) from last year

The greatest cultural victory of the Left has been to disregard the Nazi-Soviet Pact

I’ve had more people call me a liar for noting that the vicious, murderous commies of the Soviet Union invaded Poland a few weeks after the vicious, murderous Nazis did. They met in Poland and had a good old time talking about the invading, murdering and raping.

Stalin was selling the Nazis all manner of war materiel as Churchill was begging him not to.

It’s been pretty depressing watching youngsters talk about communism as if it’s not a murderous ideology whose adherents murdered, enslaved and just plain fucked with more people than the Nazis ever did (partially because the Nazis burned out so quickly).

EUnuchstan has two basic exports and has for a long time, war and murderous, governmental ideologies with side-lines in slavery, racism and colonialism.

Since I’m pissing people off, I’ll say one more thing that pisses people off, the major differences between Apartheid South Africa and the rest of sub-Saharan Africa was that the ruling tribe was white, the standard of living was much higher for all residents and many/most of the black (African-American-Africans as I hilariously saw some tool during the Olympics call them) inhabitants were immigrants who chose to live there because there was a higher standard of living and fewer people with machetes hacking them to death.


To quote Ronnie Raygun, it’s not that my liberal friends are ignorant, it’s that they know so much that isn’t so.

This is my gun.

Jamie Lee Bracey said he was in a Walmart in Florence, Alabama, last week at the gun counter and happened upon a product that piqued his interest — “Gun Oil H2O.”….

Bracey figures the water in the product would cause rust, so he reads further.

“Let’s see here. ‘Long-lasting lubrication with easy cleanup. Glycerin and paraben free. Wetter, lighter feel than silicone,’” he recited. “Oh that sounds good. That sounds really good. I think my gun would work really good, wetter and lighter.”…


Wait for it….wait for it…..

Reading further, he discovered this “Gun Oil” is “for topical use” and user is to “apply desired amount to genital areas.”



Somewhere, a bunch of DIs are laughing their asses off and they have no idea why.

We’ll know if we can trust the next asshole by whether or not they go after Obamacare and/or the immigration crap. i.e. the reasons they won the last election.

When I asked my magic 8-ball what to expect, it said “All signs point to you’re an idiot for even asking that fucking question. Of course they won’t do shit. Moron.”


Since I’m not posting much, my new job is kicking my ass, I’ll leave you with a horrible pun (It was that or a mime. You’re welcome.)

I talk about math to groups of people, my left eye was blinded 33 years ago so it doesn’t track very well with the other one anymore, the blind one is wide open while the good one squints.

What that means is that if I’m talking to someone more than 5 feet away, he or she looks over her or his shoulder because they can’t tell where I’m looking.

It’s annoying to me and that person. It’s not anybody’s fault (except the guy who hit me with the ski pole), but it’s still very annoying.

So now I wear an eye patch.

Since I teach math, I figured I’d go with a bad pun.

i patch


I’m mostly hoping I don’t run into a mathematician who slaps me in the face for that.


Obama I mean.

As we all know, he’s on the side of whoever hates America the most and here we see some of that flexibility he was talking about with Tsar Putin I before the election.

Case in point.

Reports indicate the (Russian V) military buildup in Syria could consist of combat aircraft that are capable of striking ground targets, providing close air support and intercepting aircraft, and small numbers of main battle tanks and armored personnel carriers to transport troops to the battlefield.

So what did the US have to say about that?

In a “constructive conversation,” both Carter and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu agreed to “further discuss mechanisms for deconfliction in Syria



I assume the discussions included something about a certain, shitty-little-country and how all the problems in the area are their fault.

This bit is kinda funny.

However, with U.S. aircraft also operating in the country as America roots out ISIS, it is important that the two powers coordinate their military presence to avoid accidental encounters.

Yeah, our “airstrikes” that occasionally blow up a piece of our equipment that Obama supplied to ISIS.

I wonder if the ‘coordination’ will involve bombing Israel.

I have to admit, I’m looking fondly back on the old Obama, the one who fought both sides of any war, now he’s just fighting against the US’ interests.

I’ve been avoiding news lately, work has been kicking my ass, so all day yesterday whenever I flipped by CNN, they had something along the bottom about how Trump said he doesn’t have to defend Obama, I was wondering why he was supposed to defend Obama.

I found out why,  someone called Obama a Muslim and apparently it’s Trump’s job to defend Obama, at least according to Minitrue, but Trump doesn’t feel that’s the case.

How do you talk to idiots like that?

Why the hell is it anybody but Minitrue’s or John Boehner’s job to defend Obama?

Especially as Obama is not Christian either, he’s a radical socialist and that’s the closest thing to religion he believes in.

I still see people on TV talking about whether the Iran deal is good or bad, is that still a question? I thought we had figured that out at least a few weeks ago.

There will be mushroom clouds rising over Riyadh and Minitrue will be demanding that W Bush defend Obama’s deal.
