Nits and Wits

Posted: July 16, 2014 by veeshir in Mideast Madness, Obama's Fault, PEBKAC, Random Crap

Sometimes combined!

First, we have a nitwit and an uninterested party

US Secretary of State John Kerry will brief President Barack Obama on Iran nuclear talks

Neither understands the stakes or the opposition, one thinks pretending to care will get him the White House.

A helpful timeline of ‘negotiations’ with the Mullarchy.  replete with parts like this

Iran responds by refusing to suspend enrichment-related activities as it had previously pledged.

 

Too bad our intellectual, moral, political and social betters don’t realize that. They should also realize that countries even more afraid of a nukularized Iran than Israel are every country on the Arabian peninsula, Kuwait and many more Muslim countries.

File this story under “secondary explosions”

The sound of a blast cut through the air on Gaza’s beach, drawing people out of seafront buildings to see a crowd of terrified children sprinting along the sand….

And then another blast hit the site,

Yeah, about that second explosion….

Obama admin getting tough in defense of their allies!

Washington warned its Israeli ally Monday against any ground invasion of Gaza

Assholes.

Speaking of nitwits, I give you Shep! “Israel is killing children!!!!”, he never seems to think about the fact that Israel warns the Terrorstanians and then they go out to get some children to get blown up so tolerant nitwits like good old Shep can get upset.

 

Two witty ones from my favorite ‘stan, SondraKi

First, this is useful for getting nitwits’ heads to explode.

Life expectancy was much higher in the U.S. and the slave population began to reproduce; enslaved peoples’ numbers grew rapidly, reaching 4 million by the 1860 Census. From 1770 until 1860, the rate of natural growth of North American enslaved people was much greater than for the population of any nation in Europe, and was nearly twice as rapid as that of England.

Okay, that’s funny.

Not defending slavery, I think there is no worse scourge in the world, all other problems flow from that whether commie slavery or Islamic terrorist slavery, but that right there is pretty darn funny.

 

 

And last, the wittiest. in response to that Stoners on a Roll article,
From Commenter David Ritenour at Knowledge Is Power

Top Five Kids Who Eat Hot Dogs
1) big kids
2) little kids
3) kids who climb on rocks
4) tough kids
5) sissy kids
and the bonus kid with chicken pox

Hmmmm.

A businessman is selling his small, southeastern South Dakota town for $400,000.

….

Now, the town is just a bar, workshop, three trailers and a house.

 

It’s in S. Dakota, I think they have civilized laws on guns and alcohol so it has that going for it.

The winter thing sucks, but it’s better than buying part of Detroit.

Update!!!!! (not all that important)

The more I think about it the more I like it.

The town would need a sheriff and he’d need SWAT gear for a team of 20, a gov’t-provided MRAP, a few HMMMMMMVVVVVVVs some M-4s, some M-249 SAWs, a few Barrett M-107s, a quad mount for the 4 Ma Deuces , some H&K M-40 grenade launchers, maybe a recoiless rifle, a Carl Gurstav just cuz I like the name, or two and a battery of 105s. You know, because of the law and order.

I hereby declare my intent to run for sheriff and, if elected, promise that all the police weaponry and vehicles will be available for the citizenry to practice on, for a suitable fee so the sheriff’s dept. will not be a drag on the economy, with the MRAP being a free bar-taxi service on weekends and holidays.

 

 

 

I Did Not See That Coming

Posted: March 28, 2014 by veeshir in Random Crap

Wait, yes I did (warning, annoying fucking link that continually reloads and slows down your computer to a fucking crawl), and so did anybody who’s paying any attention at all to the Hollywood. They just cannot allow anything but lefty ‘values’ be shown in a good light.

A recap of Noah (The way it should have been done!!!!!) full of spoilers.

Now if you read this blog you’d know I used to be Catholic but now I’m not but I don’t hate religion, I just don’t believe.

But, as you’d also know if you read this blog, I’m sick of people taking shots at religion, that annoys the crap out of me and reflects poorly on me as an atheist-leaning-agnostic.

This movie is one long shot at religion and the Bible. Rebooting it into an allegory for how man sucks, all the prophets are worse than the dead, white, slave-owning, so-called “Founding Fathers” and really, the fallen angels were not all that bad.

You know a movie is bad when the reviewer has to repeatedly say, “I am not kidding”.

It’s full of rock monsters, glowing aliens (Adam and Eve) and how Mankind needs to die, I am not kidding.

Just rent The Greatest Story Ever Told if you need a Bible fix.

 

Northwestern University football players can unionize.

The National Labor Relations Board in Chicago has ruled that football players at Northwestern University are employees and can unionize,

What The Fucking Fuck?

No, seriously. What The Everloving Fucking Fuck?

 

Words fail me.

A Do Over?

Posted: March 18, 2014 by veeshir in Hotassery, PEBKAC, Random Crap

Romney

That’s full of obvious stuff, he doesn’t mention Obama’s hostility to democrats the world over, but the rest is pretty blatantly, “Well duh.”

A large part of the answer is our leader’s terrible timing. In virtually every foreign-affairs crisis we have faced these past five years, there was a point when America had good choices and good options

 

So why do Romney and our fine establishment assholes in the GOP keep telling us “Mitt was right” and stuff like this?

Able leaders anticipate events, prepare for them, and act in time to shape them. My career in business and politics has exposed me to scores of people in leadership positions, only a few of whom actually have these qualities.

Romney’s trying to give America a Do-Over. We should have elected him in 2012 so he’s going to magnanimously give us a chance for a  do-over.

I have a different two work phrase for that idea:

Fuck That.

Below the fold, some stuff that’s necessary in these troubling times (more…)

The More Things Change

Posted: February 14, 2014 by veeshir in PEBKAC, Random Crap, Uncategorized

The more they stay the same.

I always see people who act as if the sequel/remake/TV-show-to-movies is new, or that we’re doing it more today than yesteryear.

I’ve always figured that it hasn’t changed so I decided to pick a year at random and check. I thought, not too recent but well into talkies, it’s hard to argue it’s a remake when the year before they were shining a torch through thin paper, so I went with 1938.

I’m only counting US films, I avoid furrin films, mostly because if I want to read I’ll read a book. Geez, do what the rest of the world does and dub them.

They list 79 films. Or so I guess, I might have missed one or counted a furrin film, but it’s close enough.

I’m counting remakes, sequels or based on books, short stories or plays. I’m including books and short stories because, to quote Grandpa, “When I was your age, TV was called books.”

I got 44 out of 79  based on something from popular culture. I’m a little depressed there was no remake of Beau Geste.

Below the fold, it gets long. (more…)

I’m Not A Rabbit!

I need some reeeeeh…..eeeehhhh…..est.

 

I’ve seen people say that they couldn’t make Blazing Saddles today and others argue and say it could.

That pretty much sidesteps the real issues.

First, nobody would make it, all the people who make offensive movies only offend Christians and conservatives, they don’t have any desire to upset any leftist apple carts.

And of course, the real issue.

You can’t even show it these days.

IFC shows it uncut, that’s it. Everybody else butchers it. What makes me laugh is that AMC used to edit out the fart/campfire scene, but now they’ve put it back in and take out all the “racist” stuff, that’s not racist but exactly the opposite.

So the only scenes that could be made are the fart scene and the above one.

Which ain’t all bad. Madelaine Kahn is all about teh awesome.

Unrelated link.

I’ve seen people linking that poll to show Hillary! is kicking sloe-Joe’s ass, but check this out.

  • U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky gets 47 percent to Clinton’s 43 percent;

  • Clinton is at 44 percent with 43 percent for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;

  • U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin leads her 48 – 43 percent.

Cruz, Rand Paul and Paul Ryan are always attacked by Minitrue as far-right idealogues who want to kill Teh Children, with establishment GOPers attacking the first two and yet, Paul and Ryan are beating Hillary! and Ted Cruz is well within the margin of error.

Not as often as years ago, but some days America makes me proud.

An Excruciating End

Posted: February 3, 2014 by veeshir in Random Crap

to an excruciating season. This was one pitiful season.

Crappy teams still had a chance in December. The Giants still, theoretically, had a chance in December.

I only have one more thing to say about yesterday’s game.

Former New York Jets quarterback Namath performs the official coin toss prior to the start of the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII football game in East Rutherford

That’s not a man wearing a fur coat.

Now that’s a man wearing a fur coat!

Important Update!

Awesome fur coat pic via nINME.  Still not sure what a nINME is, but I do know you don’t capitalize the first letter.

Somebody’s Watching Me

The plant in front of my porch always has flowers, they’re usually kind of nice, they look like paper roses.

The other night this one creeped me out the whole night as I tried to read.

PLANTFACE

I kept expecting it to climb through like some desert El Seed.

And since I’m putting pics into the post, some art.

Update, watch that gif while you’re playing the song, it’s hypnotic.

Okay, I might want a Smart Car

But only if it has a Hayabusa motor dropped in it.

Yeah, I know, it’s old enough that Numa Numa Guy was like holy FUCK that is old!  But still, that is awesome, it’s like a little go-kart on crack.  I wish they’d kept it stock looking, I love a good sleeper car.
