I has them.

CNN/ORC poll (I didn’t realize Sauron was polling for Hillary) PDF Warning.

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling:

Government surveillance of U.S. citizens

Approve                       Disapprove            No opinion
May 29-31, 2015* 29%                                 67%                            4%
June 11-13, 2013   35%                                61%                              4%

So most people are against the gov’t spying on us.

But then they get to this question

As you may know, the law allowing the National Security Administration (NSA) to collect and
analyze information on the phone calls of most Americans in order to locate suspected terrorists (emphasis me V) is set to expire on Monday, June 1. Do you think Congress should or should not renew that law and allow the collection of telephone data to continue?
May 29-31 2015
Should renew 61%
Should not renew 36%
No opinion 3%

 

It’s all in the wording.

I’d ask, “Do you want the gov’t to snoop on your phone calls even though they’ve admitted it has not caught any terrorists” and I’d bet I get entirely different answers. Maybe mention how Nidal Hassan was all over the place calling for Death To America!!! (sorta like Obama but less obvious about it) and yet, they didn’t catch him.

Push polls: The cornerstone subversion of democracy.

 

Speaking of misunderstanding democracy, how funny is it that in the birthplace of democracy they have no idea as to what it means?

The Greeks are upset that the people giving them a few billion euros expect Greece to act responsibly, with the Prime Minister saying this.

In other words, this means the complete abolition of democracy in Europe, the end of every pretext of democracy,

 

I’m with him on that, but he seems to be blaming the EUnuchs instead of the Greeks.

Listen, if you’re living on their money you’ll live by their rules.

You don’t get to decide how to spend other people’s money in democracy. That’s an entirely different sort of governing philosophy.

 

My question here is:

Did Paco misspell “En Loco Parentis”?

We’ve all seen the story about the school that had a class trip to a porn store, but I hadn’t seen the name of the school anywhere else

The Gaia Democratic School

Is it a hate crime to send your kids there?

 

My question, is this the first time someone Wins and Loses the Comment of the Day?

First, the losing comment from FrnakJ

At this point it would be easier if you announce if you’re not running for president. BTW, I have no announcement to make.

Sonomabatch, we’ve been waiting 10 years for him to run and now he’s blowing us off? That pisses me off.

Now the winner. Also from FrnakJ in the same post

Reminder: You don’t get to choose whether criminals are armed. Only whether law abiding people are.

Bingo, bango, bongo.

 

Low Carbon?

Posted: June 2, 2015 by veeshir in Ask a Moron, Funniest End of Civilization Evah

Been there, done that.

Scientific American asks

How Would a Low-Carbon Economy Work?

I believe I can answer that in picture form.

low carbon 1

low carbon 2

low carbon 3

 

I’ll tell you what sup.

Life imitates Camus!

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague

 

Ugh.  These are people who have less regard for life than French colonizers, that’s not going to end well.

 

So not only is Tsar Putin I’s state media (they’re like MSNBC  and CNN but they have to be forced to lie for their Dear Leader) lying ridiculously about his Cossacks shooting down a civilian plane, but now he’s sick and tired of Teh Peepul acting all upset and stuff.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed several laws on July 22, increasing liability for separatism and violation of regulations for holding rallies.

 

I just hope Obama does not get any ideas on that.

You have to like the bit about cracking down on “calls for separatism” as he’s fomenting separatism in other countries. That’s a nice touch.

Speaking of evil empires,

Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices… In his talk Zdziarski demonstrates “a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device” and “suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier.”

So what do you think, murderous, commie, Chinese dictators having their slaves put it in or just Apple being Apple?

They’ve both been watching Google pretty closely after all so that’s a tough call.

 

A rare disagreement between Veeshir and Israel.

Israeli envy says country deserves Nobel Prize for “restraint”

Really? You people want to be grouped with the Arafish, Kofi, What-Genocide?, Annan and Obama? I respect Israel far too much to want that to happen.

You’ve seen that commercial about the “Framily Plan” where Gordahn shows up uninvited? Well, in real life his name is J. Effin Kerry.

Michael Oren, who until recently served as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said Monday that US envoy John Kerry was coming to the region despite Sunday’s hot-mic incident making it clear that he had not been invited.

Okay, that’s funny and shows that, despite the faux pas on the Nobel, Israel still has its head on straight.

I wonder if that had something to do with the Obama admin canceling flights to Israel? He’s petty enough for that so…

 

This one is pretty darn funny too.

A conservative of color had the unmitigated gall to show up to a Democratic Front Group’s gathering (NAACP edition) and was rightly attacked in a vicious manner, but that’s just expected and not funny.

This quote from the article is what’s funny.

*Note: FreedomWorks is not funded by the Koch brothers.

Heh. disassociating themselves from an evil empire is kinda funny.

 

Geez, I just want to send the “children”, their parents and gang-banger friends back to their own countries, but Pelosi apparently wants us to crucify them.  She wants us to treat them like Jesus.

Hard core but probably a little overreactive.

 

I don’t get the problem with this.

Stoners in Colorado are using their EBT cards (not food stamps, just regular welfare) at pot dispensaries.

If it’s the Most Evil Thing In The World to drug test welfare recipients and pot is legal, why should anybody have any problem with this?

 

I haven’t seen this link any where for a long time so I’ll post it.

If you’re so inclined, these guys deliver pizzas to IDF soldiers on the frontline. Pizza for the IDF you can attach a message if you’re so inclined. .

So dat’s what sup.

Okay, that’s awesome.

A question, is this very cool or extremely lame?

The commander of the U.S. Navy’s sleek new guided-missile destroyer, which launched late last week in Maine, has a name to match its space-age look: Captain Kirk.

Seriously, I can’t decide.

 

Fast Food Furor A Fucking Freaky Frenzy

Posted: August 29, 2013 by veeshir in Ask a Moron, Nanny State

As a former Fast Food Worker(tm)  I’d like to put in my $.02. (Before it’s go’vt mandated to be $.04).

Fast food jobs are the lowest rung on the employment ladder, that’s just a fact.

They’re the jobs that anybody who has at least one finger and a thumb can do.

Except for baking and finishing (putting on the frosting and stuff), everything in Dunkin’ Donuts was done with one finger and only occasionally was the thumb needed.

The cash register had the name of the product on the keys, they were switching to pictures when I last worked there in the 90s.

To make coffee you have to remember to put the basket under the coffee grinder thingy (and remember to fill the grinder thingy. You can tell it needs more beans when nothing comes out, it’s funny how many people you have to explain that to, and push the button. Then, you have to remember to put the basket back on the coffee maker and push a button. For cream, you have to push a little weight up for “a little cream”, up twice for “regular” and more than two for “extra”. You have to be able to follow where people are pointing or maybe even know the names of the products. You have to be able to read numbers for change.

Burger King is similarly set up, or at least it was 33 years ago, I doubt it’s done anything but get more automated, you just need someone to push the right button, ditto KFC.

I’m not saying that all fast food workers are booger eating morons, I’m saying that they do a lot to make sure that type of person can work there. That’s how they keep costs down.

So quite often people who work at fast food are workally challenged or, decreasingly, teenagers needing some $$.

Now who eats fast food? Sure everybody eats it once in a while, but when I have money, I don’t go to McD’s for anything except I feel like eating something quick, undisgusting and very close to food “food”. If I have more than 15 minutes and more than $10 I’ll go to a diner or a real restaurant, not that crap,

I’d think most people are that way, if you have money you usually don’t spend a lot of time at fast food. . So poor people eat there more, relatively writing.

So in other words, they’re working to make the costs of stuff that poor people eat higher to pay poor people more money.

So increasing taxes on both food and payroll, and possibly (I’d like to see some stats) moving people who work in fast food into tax-paying status from tax-receiving status.

Hmmmm, I’m going to have to think about that one.

For the record, I didn’t start writing this so undecided about it, I was pretty agin it, I meant to go to McD’s today, but I done fergitted.

Where the fuck have I been?

At first I was pissed off at bad stuff happening to me, then I just realized the world was stuck, like a record skipping.

It’s all the same shit over and over, I’m waiting for the next turn of the wheel before I get back into blogging. I mean, it’s all just the same shit over and over again. AQ (Saudi Arabia) V Hezbollah (Iran) in Syria, Obama flouting the law with the GOP fecklessly whining about it, the economy fucked, allies pissed at us, enemies laughing, what’s more to say?

I want to post this in reply to DPUD’s post about the LCP, I wrote it in the comments but I figured I should include a picture and I need the dashboard here to figure out how to do that.

So here goes

it took many shots to get the pic exactly as the bullet was coming out.

(It took a bunch of takes to get the pic just as the bullet was leaving the barrel)

I got a Sig SC (sub-compact) 250, it’s fucking awesome.It cost mid-$400s with deluxe-type, tritium night sights.

It’s somewhat bigger than the LCP and the rest of the .380s or even 9mm pocket stuff, but .45ACP.

It’s just about the size of my hand, so still pretty small.

With a Blackhawk, inside the belt, holster, you can’t even see I’m carrying. I even put it in the cargo pocket on my cargo shorts occasionally.

The grip is small, my pinky hangs off, but that’s the classy way to drink tea so I figure, it’s the classy way to shoot. I’m sure I could get mag-extenders to fit my pinky, but it fires so smoothly so two  fingers are enough.

I’m not used to double-action only, I always fire handguns in single-action mode, so that took some practice, but not much. I also should have done that (practiced double-action firing) long ago, so it’s actually helpful.

I almost bought one of those LCPs or maybe an LC9, I like the Ruger best for pocket .380s and 9s. Notice the rounded edges on it, if you’re sticking a gun in your pocket you don’t want sharp edges catching on stuff, but I kept delaying it until I saw the 250SC and you can’t argue with .45ACP.
Well you can, but you’ll lose.

It’s also convertible to 9mm and .40 S&W, I don’t know if I’ll get he conversions, but it’s there. You can buy it in any of the three calibers, but if you can get .45ACP, why would you get 9mm? It’s not as if the cost is all that different right now. $38 for 50 vs $32.

I’m pretty well disgusted with Beretta.
I got the Storm pistol and hated it. I mean, I took it shooting once and never again, I ended up selling it.
It was sloppy.
The sights sucked and the action was loose. I liked the 14 round mags (.40 S&W), but that’s about it.

I’ve become a Sig guy, of course, I don’t see any more black, scary pistols in my future so it’s moot,
but that’s my advice for people asking.

Now, since I notice there’s been a decided lack of hottasery since I’ve posted, hottassery.
