The Eagles, who were named for the symbol of Roosevelt’s New Deal, are planning a Black Lives Matter Protest tomorrow night.

For me, it has nothing to do with this country or the flag or the anthem in itself,” Jenkins said. “Really, it’s just to continue to push for the conversation about social injustice.

So why are you shitting on our National Anthem?

So what does the coach of the Eagles think about that?

Jenkins said that coach Doug Pederson is aware of the plan, and that he is “OK” with it.

So what does the NFL think about that?

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will encourage players to use their voice to promote social change as the demonstrations during the national anthem started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last month continue to spread to other teams. (emphasis me V)…

“As I’ve said before, I truly respect our players wanting to speak out and change the community,” Goodell said. “We don’t live in a perfect society. We want them to use that voice

Oh. but when someone spoke out, on his own time and not during a football game, how did the NFL feel about free speech?

That would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu,” Williams said…

“While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football,” it said. “We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

Hank Williams decided to defend himself. CNN was On The Job!!!!!

 When one of the Fox News’ interviewers pointed out that Williams invoked “one of the most hated people in all of the world to describe … the president,”…

No remorse was evident in Williams’ latest song, titled “Keep the Change” — an apparent dig at Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to bring change to Washington…

 

Totally not related, from a CNN newsreader

“But while a lookalike showed up with a wad of cash, Mr. Bush did not.”

She referenced the following paper-mache mask of President Bush with a Hitler haircut and mustache:

Free Speech, like inclusion, is only for some people.

 

Eh, I’ll watch some Futurama and I just got the last two books of Stirling’s Change series and the evenings are really cooling off so when the Sun sets, I’ll go outside to read.

Is anybody else reading the Change series?

The first three, Dies the Fire, The Protector’s War and A Meeting at Corvallis, were great.

Then, the next generation took over, where God and gods took a bigger role, and those books were up and down, some were very good some were pretty good. None were bad.

Halfway through The Given Sacrifice, the next generation took over. It was okay. Then, the Golden Princess was very good. That was one of those books you regret ending.

I just got the Desert and the Blade and Prince of Outcasts. If you’re still liking the series, you might not want to read the next part.

I read the Desert and the Blade. Man, what a slog, it took me 3 or 4 days, which is ridiculously long for me to read a fiction book. I’d read it for less than 1/2 hour and put it down, then pick it up later and read it for 1/2 hours then…

I’ll re-read all the other ones in a day or at most two, unless I’m working full time and then it might take me 3 days.

It was 860 or so pages but it could have been about 600 if he hadn’t described every part of every meal and down to maybe 400 if he hadn’t described, in detail, Dunedain flets, the differing ‘garb’ of every community, the fields, railroads and woods, which he had described fully in previous books. At least he made it a whole book without using the word “Bannock”. I totally got sick of that in the previous 6 books. He couldn’t go 4 pages without using it.

Now if we could wean him of “clotted cream” I’d be much happier.

Seriously, it could have been 400+ pages without losing a thing except repeated, 2 or 3 page descriptions of Every. Course. Of. Every. Fucking. Meal and houses and places and people he’s already described, in great detail, in previous books. I found myself skipping whole pages, just skimming to see if he was still describing clotted cream on sweet barley cakes.

I’m about 1/4 through Prince of Outcasts and so far he hasn’t gone crazy over-describing things he’s already over-described, but if this book isn’t darn good I doubt I’ll keep reading. I might jump back in in a few years as I did with Honor Harrington.

I got sick of that series too, but I broke down and got the last two and they were pretty good again.

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.

Via Doug Ross’ site.

 

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,

chalkie-september-16

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.

Read more: Dublin cops want machine guns as brutal gang war kills two

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.

 

Our fine media betters rarely fail to make to me laugh, it’s just that usually it’s tempered by fury at their dishonesty, but this story about LGBT types who are figuring out that they need to take charge of their own protection is just funny.

First, let’s hear from someone who is more trusting of their honesty.

Jonathan Fischer is never sure who’s going to be more surprised when he, as he likes to put it, comes out of the gun closet — the gun aficionados who find out he’s gay or the gay friends who find out he likes shooting guns.

 

Yeah, I bet he was pretty surprised when most gun owners couldn’t care any less where he puts his dick. I also bet many of his, lefty, gay friends were less than tolerant of his deviation from their norm.

An example of an intolerant, reich-wing hater

When the firearms instructor at the range near Piru asked each person in the class why he or she was there, Fischer ticked off several reasons and mentioned the Pink Pistols.

“What is the Pink Pistols group?” a man asked.

There was a pause.

“We’re — a gay gun group,”…

“No, that’s awesome,” the man said, nodding reassuringly….

There was such an outpouring of support from firearms trainers, many of them straight,

Hating haters gonna hate.

Tolerant people gonna tolerate.

The Pink Pistols has received a mostly negative response from the broader LGBT community, she said. Some LGBT centers, she said, have even specifically banned the Pink Pistols from using their facilities.

You’d think the “journalist” would have noticed something there.

That’s your problem. Stop thinking when reading Minitrue “journalists”, just point and laugh.

 

These consecutive paragraphs really made me laugh.

It’s a stark contrast to how the overwhelming majority of LGBT activists and organizations responded to the Orlando massacre, which has sparked calls within the community for gun control.

In the wake of the shooting, some gay bars like the Abbey in West Hollywood beefed up security

They want more gun control so they got people with guns to protect them and this “journalist” did not notice any conflict or humor in that at all.

Further,the “journalist” didn’t note that the Orlando shooter was a security guard.

 

And that’s the funniest part.  The fool who wrote that would have no idea why I find it funny. None whatsoever.

 

I can’t, I quit last week. It’s not that hard since I smoke cigars exclusively outside and it’s 100+ out there.

It’s official, I can never go to North Korea.

the diminutive(sic) dictator banned North Koreans from making sarcastic comments

They’d love me there!

Let’s drudgetapose

Geert Wilders, Dutch politician

the far-right politician who was acquitted five years ago of making anti-Islam remarks, has gone on trial again for allegedly inciting hatred against the Dutch Moroccan minority.

 

with this Dutch pol who will not face any hate-crimes trials.

Anti-Racist Dutch MP Refuses to Shake Netanyahu’s Hand

Calling him “anti-racist” is a nice touch.

 

What the hell is Obama doing going around the world telling them Trump sucks?

President Obama urged the media and voters Thursday to challenge Donald Trump’s “wacky” proposals, and he reiterated that the Republican nominee isn’t qualified to be president.

In Laos. By calling him “wacky”.

That’s wack.

Comey defending his Friday (hide the) news dump in a memo to the rest of the FBI is very interesting.

He’s trying to defend the indefensible and I’m sure it’s because the non-political-appointees are furious at all the shit Obama’s “Justice” Dept has been doing to them.

The FBI used to pride itself on its professionalism and most people respected them.

Now? Nobody respects them.

People who like rule of law because the FBI is destroying it.

People who don’t like the rule of law because they know the FBI are a bunch of pussies and partisan hacks who will do what they’re told.

 

Should the Republican Party Be Saved if Hillary! Wins?

The better question would be, “Can it be saved?” as we would spend the next 4 years with them calling their base a bunch of assholes instead of trying to figure out why the people who used to vote for them and send them money are telling them to fuck off.

An even better question would be, “Can the GOP be saved if Trump wins?” as we spend the next 4 years with them calling their base a bunch of assholes instead of trying to figure out why the people who used to vote for them and send them money are telling them to fuck off.

 

Holy Fucking Shit.  In relation to her obvious, and admitted (I can’t remember because of head-trauma!!!!) health woes:

Clinton campaign warns media to tread carefully

The former aide also agreed that the Clinton campaign wants to put pressure on the press.

No, really. Holy Fucking Shit!

That’s from a media outlet and nowhere in that story is any intimation that maybe, just maybe, a politician telling the media what to cover and how to cover is totally out of fucking bounds and as un-American and anti-American as you can get.

It’s right there in the First Fucking Amendment.

They do get this howler

More recently, both campaigns have sought to improve their relationships with the press.

Right after telling us Hillary! told them to watch their fucking step they say she’s sought to improve their relationship.

We’re living some bizarre future that would have made Aristophanes say, “Dude, that’s messed up.”

 

People are acting all surprised by this idiocy

Yet every time a transgender man gets pregnant, has a baby, or breastfeeds, the media breathlessly report this “dog bites man” story as if it’s news.

So what you’re saying is that people who continually pretend that reality is what they say it is are shocked when actual reality intrudes?

The deuce you say!

 

 

You know, some people just piss me off.

A Swedish model-turned-medical student shelled out $1,500 for an Airbnb share in Queens — only to find out the place was a secret brothel while the renters were away,

 

What with all the complaining he got it shut down.

Yeah see, you keep your mouth shut about stuff like that.

Have you no decency?

Also, the “Swedish model” was a dude. That doubly pisses me off.

Me tubin’ Too.

First, something I can’t decide if it’s funny or endy or just pathetically terrifying.

When I played that, it had a Trump ad across the middle. I’ll call that a win.

Which leads to a comment I posted at Paco’s that made me laugh. I’m posting it here to make me laugh again.

RebeccaH, good point.

Starting with the ’96 election, the candidates have become progressively (pun intended) worse and worse.

If you plot the trajectory on a graph, you find that by 2024 the candidates will be a Papa John’s pizza running against Wednesday.

 

Next, some gunny stuff.

I must have been about 5 years too young for this awesomeness.

I still want one.

 

So, anybody up for a game of pool?

I’d need to borrow a 9mm, my stuff just blows the shit out of the table.

Important Update Below!!!!!!

Important Update Here!!!!!!

mcmahon 2

I’ve disliked the 49ers for a long time, but this is over the top.

Their QB, obviously the target of racial profiling (he’s a black, millionaire QB):

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem — he has done this in at least one other preseason game — came before the 49ers preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night….

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick

In case you don’t speak idjit, he’s saying he’s an idiot who knows absolutely nothing about the world he hasn’t learned from ESPN or their sister station, MSNBC.

 

Some editorializing from a “journalist”

By taking a stand for civil rights,…….

No, by shitting on the country that’s allowed him to live a lifestyle that 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the people who have ever lived could not even imagine.

 

So what’s the NFL going to do about it? Notice the URL, it’s from the NFL, they’re the ones who editorialized about “civil rights”.

I love football but I hate the NFL.

IMPORTANT UPDATE HERE!!!!!!!

I’ve seen people calling him ‘mixed-race’ today, but I thought today’s totally tolerant lefties and SJWs were all into the one-drop rule? Confusing.

The NFL’s statement

Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem,” NFL spokesman Brian

 

49ers statement

freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

It’s all about Free Speech!!!!!!

You know, except when a white man says something about a lefty shibboleth.

In a statement Monday, ESPN said that while Williams “is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to “Monday Night Football.” We are extremely disappointed with his comments and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

 

Fuck you NFL. Not a fucking penny from me for a long time. I usually go to at least one game a year. Not this year.
