Unless this….

Dick Clark

… involves this…


I’m not interested.

I’m a Little Happier This Morning

After all, someone makes this.


The most flabbergasting aspect of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 isn’t that it exists, but that it’s a production vehicle. As in, you can buy one….

A $half million+ 6X6 Mercedes.
Holy Endymobile Batman!

Forgot to post the other reason I’m happy.
I forgot because I’m kind of ambivalent on this one.
It’s freaking hilarious that the Cowboy’s season ended on an INT for like the 10th year in a row, it’s just too bad the Eagles were the beneficiaries.
Also, the Giants have totally soured me on football this season. I’m not even looking forward to next year. That was the worst year for a Giants team not QBed by Dave Brown or Joe Pisarcik.

Little help here from the lawyery types…

In philosophy, there’s a moral principle that “ought implies can“.  Put otherwise, it means that in order for some action to be obligatory, it must be possible for the agent to perform that act.

Is there a similar principle in law?  If the Congress enacted a law requiring the executive to provide a free unicorn to each citizen (or some non-zero subset of citizens), could that law be considered Constitutional?  Clearly it is impossible.  Wouldn’t impossibility imply unconstitutionality?

Similarly, Obama’s defense of his endless improvisations that substantially alter the law seems to be that the law is impossible to implement.

I hope you can see where I’m going with this.

Any such principle, law nerds?

Give and Take

Posted: December 29, 2013 by veeshir in GOP FAIL, Notes on the Revolution

So Paul Ryan wants veterans to ‘give’ after he ‘took’ and at least one veteran is less than thrilled.

I’m still mulling this Paul Ryan budget deal that stole money from every military retiree (past, present and future). This morning, upon opening my email, I noticed I had a letter from Congressman Paul Ryan…and it was begging me for an “emergency end of the year donation.”

Then he gets all intemperate and shit,

Your ability to look us in the eye, take money from us (apparently there was ZERO, other source of waste within the federal government that you could have recovered this money…

The nerve of him.

Doesn’t he know that the GOP establishment pooh-bahs are more important than we and that they deserve our money to Fight The Democrats?!?!?!?!

I mean, otherwise the Dems will gut our military and show disrespect to our veterans!!!!!

Related, apparently people are upset that there’s a fat Barbie. I don’t get why.

I know my Gi Joes would have loved a fat chick to bang. Hot Barbie always snubbed them for that metrosexual loser Ken.

Lessons Not Learned

Posted: December 23, 2013 by veeshir in Random Crap

So when last we saw the National Review in a free speech controversy, we had Derbyshire trying to start that dialogue on race we always hear about.

Derbyshire was fired of course. Can’t have a dialogue on race where unpalatable truths are uttered, where whitey does not apologize for being all white and shit.

Steyn had a Corner comment about how the lynching of Derb was a bad idea. Of course, he was attacked for that, he should have learned his lesson.

So here we have Mark Steyn opining on the Duck Dynasty guy Who Must Be Shunned By All Right Thinking People.

So his editor felt the need to explain to Steyn how he needs to shut his pie hole, some things are just beyond the pale. Sure we have free speech and shit, but not if it offends someone important.

Steyn replies.

Geez, I usually respect Steyn, but he should have learned from the Derbyshire dustup that the National Review is not willing to support the wrong speech any more than they are to support non-establishment GOPers, those things keep you from getting all the good invites to all the right parties.

Gotta love it when they update old movies for modern tech.

Since it’s the intertubes, I need to point out that Ralphie needs to work on his trigger discipline.

The dust-up over a certain reality TV personality’s recent comments about sexual mores reminded me of something that has irritated me for some time about the Celebrate Diversity crowd, and a minor revelation I once had while watching a Will and Grace re-run.

But first, a minor detour. Back in 2002, not too long after college, I was living in the DC area working in what I would consider my first “real” job — something that didn’t involve bussing restaurant tables or making inordinate amounts of photocopies. Rather suddenly, I found myself in need of a new place to live. I ended up finding an ad for a cheap, metro-accessible place. The ad said “gay friendly”. Hmmm, not my ideal choice. But I needed new digs pronto, and it was cheap! As it turns out, it was three gay dudes living in a house, and I was the odd straight guy. Little wonder that I ended up watching a re-run of Will and Grace.


The shooter at Arapahoe High School (not going to name him, he doesn’t deserve the recognition) came armed for massacre, including extra ammunition, a machete, and Molotov cocktails. It’s fairly obvious from the amount of weaponry carried that the shooter had no intentions of simply killing his debate coach. Few news outlets are reporting on why the attack was cut short, though. It wasn’t because the targeted debate coach had left the school, and it wasn’t because the shooter suddenly had an attack of conscience.

The reason the shooter suddenly stopped his attack and killed himself was because Arapahoe High School had an armed school resource officer who confronted him. The shooter felt he was cornered and killed himself.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson had this to say:

We believe that the response from the  school resource officer … was absolutely critical to the fact that we did not have additional injury and/or death in this particular matter.

I think we have our proof of concept for armed school officers saving lives.

She’s baaaaaaaaack…

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I give you Anna Semenovich’s triumphant return:


Wow,  I had heard about this but didn’t think it would go anywhere, another part of Spain is basqueing in the bright, Iberian sunshine.

Separatist parties have agreed a date and two questions to put to Catalonians on independence for the region.


I certainly didn’t think it would go in this direction

“The government guarantees there won’t be any illegal action in Spain. The realisation of a referendum of this nature will be against the constitution, against the statute of autonomy of Catalonia. The president of the Catalonian government is the state representative in Catalonia and therefore he is bound to comply with the law,” stressed Spanish Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon.


Hmmmm, three sided civil war? Maybe 2 with Catalonia and Basquelonia allying and going against Spain minor.

Which brings us something I had no idea was happening.

The Interior Minister Angelino Alfano warned parliament the unrest could “lead to a spiral of rebellion against national and European institutions.”

…“Our university isn’t a catwalk for those who peddle austerity” read a banner.

Marches, sit-ins and demos took place in other cities including Milan and Turin.

Fourteen policemen have been injured…

The “pitchfork” movement began as a loosely organised group of farmers from Sicily and their aims remain vague beyond demanding the government be replaced and parliament dissolved.

Larger demonstrations are planned in the capital next week.

I’m not sure if that requires a “Wow”, but I do know I’m jealous as hell.

First they have the “Vaffanculo Day” protest election where a comedian won a fairly big election on the explicit promise to gum up the works and now they have a freaking Pitchfork Movement.

Sonomabatch, they’re making us look like slackers.

Also, think about that, the two countries that were generally lumped in with Greece are having these problems.

There’s crazy stuff gong on everywhere these days.
