Holy Moley!


That’s a video of the streets of Dhaka in Bangladesh where the sacrificing for Eid is in full swing.

Huge swathes of animal sacrifices marking the Islamic festival Eid al-Adha turned the streets of Bangladesh’s capital into rivers of blood.

Authorities in Dhaka had designated areas in the city where residents could slaughter animals, but heavy downpours Tuesday rendered them out of action.

Instead, Muslims took to car parks, garages and alleyways to traditionally mark Eid al-Adha – or the Feast of Sacrifice – by slaughtering livestock and when the blood flowed into the streets, it turned them red.

That’s a lot of blood in that water. What gets me is people walking through it. Check out the pics at the link.

Think of it as a preview of the upcoming Battle For Mosul where the streets will run with blood too.

The United States has increased its forces in Iraq by almost 500 troops in the last week to support the operation to take Mosul from the Islamic State group, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday.

ISIS are a bunch of murderous/suicidal, evil bastards who would think nothing of destroying the city as they fight. They’re planning on it.

Recall, they’re the ones who split off from al Quaeda because they’re a bunch of pussies and we know how al Quaeda acted in Fallujah.  And that’s when we got most of the non-jihadi folks to leave the city. The people in Mosul do not have that option.

Of course, with Obama in charge, you know it’s going to be needlessly bloody.

Some U.S. officers in Baghdad believe the Obama administration is rushing plans for a Mosul offensive so it takes place before the November presidential election, a retired general says.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael D. Barbero said his contacts in Baghdad have relayed the concerns to him, fearing there is now an “artificial timeline” for what promises to be by far the toughest battle in the war against the Islamic State inIraq.


Nothing like telling your enemy when you’re going to attack.

Excerpt from a speech by Roosevelt, June 2, 1944.

…we shall be invading the coast of France, not at the Pas de Calais as the Nazis expect but at Normandy to surprise the Nazis!!! And we shall be invading in a few days!!! Beginning our task of driving the Nazis from their conquests on the European continent!!!!

Well, that would have been the speech if he was an idiot like Obama.

As I’m Writing The Post Update!!!!!!

Hannity is on talking about Trump’s rising poll numbers and I’m pretty sure he’s beating off under the desk as he talks about it.

Now, back to the post as it’s in progress!


Australia had their big gun-grab where it’s very difficult to own any guns anymore, so how’s that working out for them?

Crimes associated with firearm possession have also more than doubled, driven by the easy availability of handguns, semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and, increasingly, machine guns, that are smuggled into the country or stolen from licensed owners.”

The machine gun are almost definitely smuggled in as you cannot own a machine gun in Australia.

So gun-grabbing didn’t work, what to do, what to do?

Gun-controlled Australia is witnessing gun crime at such high levels that state and federal officials are pushing new controls that will do everything from enact a second national gun buyback to increase sentences for gun crime and illegal gun possession.

Make it more illegaler!!!!!!

Huh, I can’t figure that out.  Gun control has worked so well in places in America that have tried it, like Chicago,


Britain banned evil guns, how’s that worked out for them?

The West Midlands is STILL the nation’s gun crime capital – and it’s getting worse…

These were all cases where firearms were actually used (emphasis me, V) rather than just possessed, including firing them, threatening others with them or using them as a club-like weapon.

It means that there were 20 offences for every 100,000 people in the region last year, or one for every 5,000 residents.

Not far behind was London with 19.4 per 100,000.

Greater Manchester had the third-highest rate in the country with 16.0 gun crimes per 100,000.

When you ban guns, only criminals will have guns.

That’s win/win for our fine political betters. They turn generally law-abiding people into either criminals or disarmed victims, both leading to reduced freedom as cops need to ignore other Constitutional amendments because of the rise in crime. Like “Stop and Frisk” where cops in NY were just stopping random folks for no reason except they felt like it and it was necessary because of all the gun crime. Cuz guns are illegal so the criminals know their victims are unarmed.


I’m trying to figure out what is up with this story.

She was in for a rude awakening when she realized her 5-year-old kindergarten student had brought 30 packets of heroin to school Monday, officials said.

He brought enough for everybody so I don’t get the problem.


Caballero update!

I finally got it back today! It runs freaking great, sounds great, the transmission slips like mad so I can’t get on it!

Sonomogun. The first idiot I thought was a good mechanic 4 months ago told me I had a 4L60 transmission.

I just found out that a 4L60 has lots of electronics hanging off it for computer control. Mine has one (1) wire on it. Apparently something to do with kickdown.

The guy who put it together told me I have a 700r4 transmission, so I have to replace the torque converter.

Son of a bitch.

At least now I have a guy I can trust who can get that done in one day once I get the right torque converter.
The worst part is that I knew this guy but he has a muffler place. He’s done exhaust and brake work for me but I didn’t think of him as an engine guy. His father is a big motorhead who has a shop in Globe but he came to Mesa to work on my car.

I should have known, he has a Toyota Corolla he took the body off and replaced it with a body that looks like a huge muffler. It’s pretty cool, if you’re a muffler guy I guess.

Which actually works out, I’m supposed to drive like a grandma for 500 miles to break in the engine and I surely can’t stomp on it as it sits.

I cannot drive like a grandma, it goes against everything I stand for. When I was 16 I had a hitch-hiker refuse to get in my car, he had heard about me. If I hadn’t had a ’72 Dart with a 198 cubic inch engine with a whopping 100 HP I would have been wrapped around a tree by the time I was 16 3/4.

As it was, when driving on mountain roads with “no speed limit”, which meant 55 at the time, I would get the car to 60 (0-60 measured by sundial) and keep it there no matter what the road did.

Gila Muffler in Mesa did a great job, taking a car that had two people work on it before him and figuring out what was done, what needed to be done and what needed to be redone.

I actually paid him more than he asked as I thought he was undercharging me and I wanted him thinking happy thoughts about me when I need more work.

If you’re in the East Valley near Phoenix, I suggest you use Gila Muffler. Good, honest mechanics are hard to find.

On the east coast, I have a few friends who are mechanics so I haven’t had to worry about being ripped off since the 80s.

    Glad to hear you finally got your Caballero running, even if it still needs a torque converter.

  2. veeshir says:

    When I called Summit to find out about the torque converter, they said it’s the same one so it’s not that.
    The trans is slipping badly.
    Oh man, this car just keeps getting more and more expensive.

  3. HayZeus says:

    Ouch, that sucks. Good luck getting that new tranny then!

  4. Imadenier says:

    It is worth paying them extra if they’re good…like tipping your bartender…
    I’ve seen some funny mechanics signs…

    Regular Labor Rate: $50

    If you fixed it first: $200
