Again.

I did something I was loathe loath to do, I figured out what it was going to cost me to get a new body for that engine.

I was going to have to spend probably $8-10k more to own two cars, a running El Camino and an albatross around my neck in the guise of a Caballero with an engine in the bed. Or… I could spend yet another couple grand, I’d hope but probably more knowing that fucking thing, and have a running Caballero worth maybe 3 or 4 grand. So for the low cost of $10-$12k on top of the nearly $10k I’ve already spent I’d have a car and an albatross and a lot less money to buy a house next year. I also have to spend another $1,500 to get the seats reupholstered in my Mustang and fix the BBK throttle body that’s 8 or 9 years old and acting up, I was going to have to put off the seats on the Mustang.

So I decided to keep the albatro….Caballero and, try (wish me luck on this shit) to go the classic car plates route so I don’t have to get emissions. I start school next month and it’ll take a year so next year I’ll move somewhere with no emissions.

I went to the DMV, they said I need Collector Car insurance. My insurance company needs pictures so tomorrow my plan is to register the thing and start driving it. Caballero plans tend to not work, so we’ll see.

The guy who was trying to get it emissioned did a bunch of work on it and it’s finally right. He adjusted the carb and timing, which none of the other people seemed to know how to do correctly, which the first asshole made sure was necessary by taking them off a tuned engine for some inexplicable reason and the 4th or 5th guys screwed up the timing trying to make a top-end car (power band at 5,000+ rpm) into an off-the-line car.

They’re the ones who wanted me to change the carb, I have a brand new Holley 750 4bbl that Blueprint said was right, and distributor, I have new HEI distributor again that Blueprint said was right, to make it faster off the line, which every other mechanic said was not going to work. A bigger, differently geared, rear-end and a manual transmission would be the way to do that according to my buddy in VA.

I might still do that, but if I do then I’d have to relive my teen years and take up power-sliding again… I mean, take up drifting.

I will say that in 1982-84 I did far more exciting ‘drifting’ in my 72 Cutlass Supreme with an Olds 350 4bbl. It was my specialty. I used to give rides. Hell, when I was  16-18 and learning that shit in my 72 Dart with the 196 straight six I did 360s far better than that, on snow and ice cuz a 196 can’t make the tires spin on pavement, but still. I used an egg-timer to track my 0-60 on that Dart.

So my plan is to put the Mustang under a cover and drive the Caballero for the summer and then contrariwise when I can put the top down. I am not looking forward to dealing with the Caballero again, but I hope I found a mechanic HeyZeus has not gotten to. The bastid.

 

Let’s tube!

It’s funny how many outlets said that This Poll Showing GOP Voters Are More Motivated Should Scare Democrats!!!!!! and yet, if you read the comments on righty blogs, it’s the establishment pricks in the GOP who should be worried.

Given the GOP’s campaign against ObamaCare and their failure to repeal it, I would find this encouraging if I were a Democrat…

What is already energizing the Republican vote for 2018 is the prospect for ousting more establishment RINOs in the primaries than at any time in history…

This is what morons like Rags, the MFM and liberals in particular cannot fathom…that people are P1SSED at THIS lot of Republican Democrats!

Get these road blocks to progressed removed and people put in place who will carry out what they said they would!…

 

Primary season is going to be even more interesting than when Tea Partiers were trying to get rid of them. Tea Partiers were still polite and respectful. Today, those people are sick and tired of being called vicious names by all our fine betters in DC and minitrue, they’re not going to be so polite. Remember when they primaried Murkowski and the GOP closed ranks to get her elected anyway? I do not see that shit working next year. If they pull that shit expect the Dem to win and the GOP to blame their voters.

 

The difference between what is important to Americans and what the media is trying to get us to care about.

Bloomberg released a poll Monday in which they gauged Americans’ mood six months into the new presidency. While Trump didn’t fare too well, Americans are quite optimistic about the economy in general and their personal financial health. As part of the study, Bloomberg asked respondents what they think is the top issue facing the country. Here are the results:

Not surprisingly, health care tops the list of concerns, followed by jobs and security issues. These findings are pretty typical, though the collapse of Obamacare and the GOP bills to fix it have caused health care to surge higher than usual. But look toward the center of the list. Russia, the issue that has dominated press coverage since the November election, scores a paltry 6 percent on Americans’ top concerns.

Notice where “taxes” is on that graph. They keep pushing that as if it was a big deal in the election but it was the lawlessness of the former admin, Obamacare and illegal immigration that Trump rode to victory. That stuff is not important to our fine media betters though so they ram their priorities down our throats.

 

Coup Coup

Mueller’s Fishing Expedition appears to be rolling right along.

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

They really don’t want to know what happens if they lawlessly ‘fix’ the election we screwed up last year.

Notice that the people who put their money, instead of ours, where their mouths are are worried.

Major U.S. stock indices, which had been trading higher in the morning, fell as traders worried that the probe could derail Trump’s growth agenda.

Yup. Putting Pence and therefore the establishment pricks in the GOP in charge would fuck the whole thing up.

 

Speaking of which,

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

We finally have someone ready to push back against the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue and some people seem to think he’s too confrontational. When Mitt fucking Romney is the Next Hitler!!!!!! you know it’s time to start fighting back using their rules.

Something the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party and the vicious liars in Minitrue refuse to allow to even be said

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

Exactly. RTWT, it’s very smart. You can tell cuz it agrees with stuff I’ve written.

 

Lest we forget that lefties aren’t just vicious, they’re fascists who refuse to accept that alternate viewpoints are valid and should not be aired.

SOCIAL MEDIA GIANT FACEBOOK BLOCKED MORE THAN TWO DOZEN CONSERVATIVE CATHOLIC PAGES IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD, SOME WITH MILLIONS OF FOLLOWERS, SAYING ONLY THEY WERE “SUSPECTED OF SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES.”

Faceblock knows which side of the current war they’re on, and it’s the side of fascist censors.

 

Oh yay!

The head of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned the U.S. that it better move its forces away from his country if Washington imposes new sanctions on his paramilitary group.

Good luck with that. Somehow I don’t think Mattis uses the adjective “powerful” when discussing the Revolutionary Guard. He probably uses words like “target”, “killing field” and “pig-skin coffins”.

 

Do you think that Akbar Britain noticed that Benny Hill and Monty Python are the most popular things about their nation and they’re trying to out-ridiculous them?

Home Secretary Amber Rudd will today propose to make possessing them illegal everywhere, whether in public or at home.

A long list of dangerous weapons that glamorise violence will also be included in the total ban, putting them on the same legal footing as unlicensed firearms.

They include sword sticks, butterfly knives and blowpipes, as well as a range of martial arts weapons such as deathstars (deathstars? throwing stars you arseholes) and handclaws.

Only people having the weapons for bonified ceremonial or religious reasons will be exempt from the ban.

Ms Rudd is also looking at making it compulsory to buy all knives in person rather than ordering for delivery to keep them out of children’s hands.

A new offence could be created of delivering them to private property.

Or are their oligarchs really that stupid? Blowpipes? Are they going to then outlaw copper pipes when people use that?

Banning normal items is what you do When Something Must Be Done!!!!!!! but you’re out of ideas.

The scariest, most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time.

But the police are still powerless to confiscate or arrest suspects who keep the large blades with serrated edges at home.

No really. They’re upset it’s legal to have a bread knife in your house.

Have they outlawed the longbow yet? I know most of their flags are haram, but I’m just wondering how much of their history they’re going to erase.

Up next? Neville Chamberlain’s brilliant foreign policy made it possible for the next Prime Minister, Winston someone or other, to fight WWII.

 

See, now this guy is doing something useful.

Sergei Paylian was only 14 years old when he was horrified by the death of his young, attractive neighbor in Tbilisi, Georgia. As was the local Soviet custom at the time, her open coffin was carried through the street to the sound of music as a shocked teenage Sergei looked on, confronted for the first time with the issue of his own mortality.

It sparked a lifelong obsession with aging – and how to reverse it.

Now, standing in his neat Florida laboratory that looks more like a dentist’s office, the 66-year-old scientist is explaining how a lifetime of research has culminated in a purified extract he calls bioquantines, ‘combinatorial biologics’ incorporating other species such as frogs and, in the future, sharks that he believes is the key to curing diseases – and even death.

When injected into humans, he claims, the bioquantines find their way to diseased or damaged cells and help restore them to a healthier state.

The name is far better than Umbrella Corp

The company Dr Paylian founded, Bioquark, is part of a broader project called ReAnima

A zombie-apocalypse, like an asteroid strike, would be a great sorting device.

When you have no practical skills a fall of civilization pretty much ensures you’re not going to do well. What happens when Domino’s stops delivering and even Amazon Prime can’t get you your quinoa from Whole Foods?

 

Sorta short on content so let’s Pic Post at the end.

Et #2 Brute?

 

 

I don’t really like this one but

 

The rest are keeping their mouths shut so we don’t know the percentages but there are obviously enough of those types to kill lots of people.

Although I’d say the caption should read, ” If you are not a Muslim or a sufficiently similar Muslim…”

 

I don’t look like this, my tits are hairy for instance, but it’s my philosophy.

That’s one thing that many people cannot understand, I treat you the way you treat me. I start nice and polite, but if you call me names I’m all outta fucks so I make sure you know I think you’re a little too dim and full of hate to be taken seriously. It doesn’t accomplish anything but give me a laugh and get fools to leave me alone.

But my favorite part is the end. I can not give a fuck very fucking hard. That was a hard lesson but a useful one.

 

Can I get a Heh?

 

 

Now, while computers and technology hate me (as well as mechanics and GMC’s apparently), that doesn’t mean I’m a luddite but…

Sometimes progress isn’t a good thing.

How awesome would it be if CA was still 3 1/2 months away?

    EXTREMELY awesome.

    My plan is to cut the transcontinental railroad at the CA border first, then work on border control, keeping them out of America. Putting San Fran 105 days away seems like it would be worth it, so long as we can make Sacramento even farther away.

    So..your son wants to terrorize London?
    Good for him. Since Obama tried to lose every war we’ve ever won it makes sense to make sure we don’t lose the Revolution and the War of 1812.

    Heh. Indeed.™

    Seriously, I plan on going to the primaries next year just to vote for whomever is the most popular alternative to my current RINO congresscritter. He’s pander to Hollywood and good heavens, impeaching Koskinen is madness levels of RINO. Hell, assuming he still wins the primary I’ll probably vote against him in ’18 as well, given that my area is deep Red State enough that it won’t make a difference? And if by some miracle we do end up electing a D, it’ll be because the rest of the constituents in my neck of the woods are as fed up with the kayfabe as I am.

    I am not looking forward to dealing with the Caballero again, but I hope I found a mechanic HeyZeus has not gotten to. The bastid.

    NO idea what you’re on about here. None.

    *Whistles innocently*

      I’m voting for Flake’s most popular opponent in the primary.
      I’m lazy so I just won’t vote if it’s Flake.
      I am bummed, I live in Maricopa County but Arpaio isn’t running.
