According to Hillary!, Donald Trump has incited violence!!!!!

I agree. You cannot effectively disagree with lefties, it just sets them off.

They’re really just a bunch of angry, violent, petulant children with self-control problems.

I also agree with this, although I’m not sure if she meant to say what she said.

 But I also accept the responsibility, making sure that we do everything we can to try to heal these divides to bring people together,”

As we saw last week, she is trying as hard as she can to heal the divides to keep us divided to help her get elected.

The biggest divide she’s healed is dividing us into people who give her money and vote for her with the rest in the Basket Of Deplorables.  Oh yeah, almost forgot, don’t forget to get a Basket of Deplorables stamp on your VRWC membership card.

Obama has made sure the divide in America is getting stronger and deeper, with the help of Hillary!.

If she meant that she wants to heal the divide and bring us together, well that’s just idiotic from the one who’s put anybody who disagrees with her into a vast conspiracy and a basket of hatisms. You know, a typical Clinton lie that accuses you of being an idiot.


This one I sorta agree with.

What I think is really important about these emails is the chilling fact is that the Russians are continuing to interfere with our elections.


Oh, not the email thing she’s talking about but all the $millions the Russians have given her to spend on campaigning and buying people off and who can forget Obama turning off the country-of-origin deal on credit card transactions to his campaign. That pisses me off.

Blaming Russia for Colin Powell noticing that her husband is a dog is typical Dem playbook. When an email is “hacked” from a Republican the email is the subject, when it’s hacked from a Dem the hacking is the subject.

The former first lady refused to criticize Powell on the show, which has a large African-American audience.

So I also agree that Hillary! is just as transparent as Obama. The way they lie easily and often is absolutely transparent.


I agree with this one too.

There are few easy answers, but one thing is clear: the current trajectory of climatic change presents a strategically-significant risk to U.S. national security

So who said that?

It was signed by more than a dozen former senior military and national security officials,


So in other words,we have Obama, the State Dept, NASA and now our fucking military paying attention to global warmmongering instead of paying attention to the people who are trying to kill us.

That makes us far less safe and represents a huge and strategically significant risk to our national security.


This I don’t agree with, except in a “Let’s watch Hollywood go bankrupt!” way.

They’re ‘remaking’ the Magnificent 7.

Except it’s to the original version as Starship Trooper is to the book.

Sure, there’s 7 guy saving a town from bandits but the bad guys can’t be brown folk so it has to be a rich, white, “industrialist” and they’re hired by a wymyns and it’s all about revenge.

Eh, at least the bad guy’s name isn’t “Trump”, so that’s something. .

The head good guy instead of “Chris” is named “Chisolm”.

Ummm, Chisolm was an entirely different guy. So they’re trying to glom onto another western.

Geez, why not just call it the Magnificent Fistful Of Good, Bad and Ugly 7!


Those idiots will never learn. They could have made a western and called it something else, but they had to try to rape a classic and all they’ll end up with is loss-leader while pissing off their intended audience.

The only people who will make a profit off this movie, besides the actors, will be whoever owns the rights to the original as people watch that again to get the taste of SJW out of their mouths.


Caballero update.

Rebuilt transmission it is. Another week.

There was a loose cable that let the trans know what the carb was doing but even after tightening that the trans slipped. In other words, it was no faster with a brand new, 440 HP, 470 ft-lbls torque 383 stroker engine with a Holley 4bbl than with a burnt out, 1979, 180HP 350 with a poorly installed Carter 4bbl .

The Moroso air cleaner won’t fit under the hood. The old Edelbrock fits, barely, but I might put in a hood scoop. I’m planning on making this into a motorhead car with, eventually, a really nice paint job but that’s in the future.

Another Repost from 2/2013 because of some 30 year old hotassery. Jeez, I try to re-introduce an aging hottie to a new generation and what thanks do I get? Shut down. Sonomabatch.


Now, on to our post, which is still relevant. I’m not sure if that makes it fundy or fendy.

I moved the bits around to keep Chicago stuff next to each other. Not sure why I didn’t do that the first go around.


This is totally not a “round the tubes” post. I already did one of those today.


What with the problems in their global warmmongering, Penn State must have moved some global warmmongering ‘scientists’ over to their astronomy dept.

We all know the “Goldilocks Zone” (GZ) in astrogeometristics means the zone that’s ‘just right’ for life. In other words, the distance from a star where a planet could conceivably support life. We only know of one planet, currently, that supports life so we used to base the GZ on Earth’s orbit. That was the ignorant ‘before’, we’re in the glorious ‘now’ so we have super-genius global warmmongers on the job.

the Penn State team suggests… farther away planets into the fold of life-sustaining planets, a… it also kicks some planets out of the hunt for life as too hot — including, oddly enough, our very own Earth,

Brilliant! You’d think one of them might look at that and say, “Uh, guys…..” You’d be wrong.

So why do I say it’s global warmmongers? Besides the obvious I mean.

Clouds are just one factor that neither definition of the zone takes into account,

Neither do any global warmmongering models, and that’s why nothing they do is useful. They just can’t figure out how to model clouds (neither can I, but I admit it), so they just ignore them. It’s Ostrich Science.

Seriously, it always make me laugh to think of going back to 1970 and trying to explain 2013. The crackpots living in the mountains waiting for the Russkies to invade because the US gov’t invited them would think I was  a paranoid loon.

Speaking of which, assuming there are around 250 million adults in America, does anybody really think that there aren’t 249,999,999 people more fit for that job than Hagel? You know who this helps? That’s right, Joe Biden. He’s number 249,999,999. He’s coming up smelling like…not shit!

Updated 9/6/2016 Remember Hagel? Whodathunk his successor would be even more useless? How funny is it that nobody, and I mean nobody, thought that would be possible.

Now, back to 2/2013

FrnakJ would win “Quote of the Day if I let him in the contest, but I won’t cuz he’d win every day.

So lax gun laws in other states than Illinois cause gun violence in Chicago but not in the states with the lax gun laws.

Heh. He’s consistently made me laugh for 9 years. But don’t tell him. He’ll get a big head.

Okay, this is heartening. Chicago and Boston have always been uber-corrupt but well run. They both had the biggest necessity for any, effective, political machine, a top-down hierarchy where the top tries to make sure Teh Peepul are happy. As we’ve seen in Boston, that might crumbling in Chicago . The fall of the Kennedys and the $billions in Big Dig money made insurrection thinkable in Boston.

Now we see something funnier in Chicago.

How, in the city of Chicago where the Democrat Machine is so strong, could there be 17 Democrat candidates vying for one open seat? It could hardly be imagined under the iron rule of former Mayor Daley.

How indeed. What we’re seeing is people who want power, but think power means you tell people what to do and you know more than anybody else. Rahm doesn’t understand what it takes to run a political machine, it’s like a mafia family but with more guns.  Daley was raised and taught by his father who perfected Chicago’s political machine, and that was one of the most vicious but well run in the country.

The candidates run the gamut from completely clueless, yet dangerous in their ignorance to practiced Chicago pols like Alderman Beale and Robin Kelly,

Oh man am I rooting for the ignorantly dangerous. Chicago likes its politics and believes all the stupidities MSNBC spews out, let them actually live in that world. I picture people like Barbra Boxer or Maxine Waters, except even more stupid or they’d be in national politics instead of Chicago-city politics. They can pass a law mandating that all guns sold in Chicago have remote safeties that the police control or that they have smart bullets that don’t shoot people with police badges.

Chaos is the best outcome from stuff like that.

Updated 9/6/16

I’d just like to point out that the chaos I was expecting in Chicago is here and it’s politically driven.

Say what you want about the Daleys (really, say it. They were just less obvious about their feloniosity than Capone), but they knew how to run the crime family that is the Chicago-Dem Party, Rahm does not.


9/6/2016 Deleted part about funemployment that didn’t make sense at the time and really doesn’t make sense and I don’t feel like trying to make it make sense. Just more Minitrue nonsense to make their God-President look not like shit.

Now, back to 2/2013

This needs to be posted again, not because I like it, but because it’s so scarily true.

Just Fixin' It

Just Fixin’ It

9/6/2016 Not sure why they left Article V alone. It’s all obsolete and shit, now they just ignore it, the Dept. of “Justice” then ignores any court orders and then Obama gets John Roberts to say it’s OK. I guess Roberts answered Obama’s plea

Mr. Roberts! Tear Down This Wall!

Mr. Roberts! Tear Down This Wall!

Now, back to 2/2013

No links, just some uselessly late movie reviews.

9/6/2016 I took out most of the movies for the repost and added Hercules.

Hercules with The Rock. I love that movie. It actually could be the most historically correct Hercules movie ever. Seriously. I’d bet a dollar that this is how the legend started.

Bubba Ho Tep, one of Bruce Campbell’s finest. Elvis got sick of performing, traded with an impersonator but kept the right to take it back then lost the papers so now he’s in a cheap nursing home about to be killed by a mummy. If you need any other endorsement, Lemur King doesn’t like it.

And last but not least, the hockey strike was over like 2 weeks ago, why didn’t anybody tell me? Are the Islanders mathematically eliminated yet?

9/6/2016 again, sigh. Now the Islanders make it to the playoffs and revert to suckage when they get there. Not sure which is worse.


Deleted the Hottasery, so it’s Slim Pickens below.


Sweet: Global Warmmongers go to the Arctic in August to highlight the lack of ice (August-September being when there is the least ice cuz it’s the end of the warminging of summer) and get stuck in the ice.

Already the expedition is around 4 to 6 weeks behind schedule having been held up in the Laptev Sea by the kind of ice which experts like Cambridge University’s Peter Wadhams – of whom more in a moment – assure us will soon disappear permanently from the Arctic in summer.

Global warmmongers, not just science-proof but irony-proof.


Sour: You have to run a gauntlet of ‘youths’ to drive around Fortress Calais (the end of the Chunnel and a big port in France)

On Wednesday in the early hours masked men wielding sticks felled a tree across the road outside the port. It’s a driver’s worst nightmare to be stationary. Left sitting vulnerable to the migrant hordes, vulnerable to being loaded with a new cargo for trade: humans. 

One of the drivers caught up in the nightmare filmed by the BBC tells me of his ordeal: ‘They all had clubs, baseball bats or lengths of wood – and they meant business. The ringleader told me to wait. In clear English. Five minutes. While he organised his load….

…Before Fortress Calais. You’ve seen pictures of the fences on the news. Been told it is okay. It’s all fine now. Look how high this fence is!

But it’s not okay. The problem has just been moved on a bit. Illegal migrants are everywhere in the darkness

So we have that to look forward to.


Sweet: This story by the Wash Post celebrating…errrr….just totally dispassionately discussing former VA Gov McDonnell (R) and how the “Justice” Dept, after the case was dropped by a reasonable judge, is going to go after him again. Cuz of the “Justice”!

Why is that sweet?  For once, I seriously say read the comments at the Wash Post. Used to be, and usually, commenters at the Wash Post are reliably leftist, those comments are all about the different way they treat an (R) and Hillary! and are not favorable to the “Justice” Dept.

Democrats attacking Republicans.
Democrats covering up for Hillary.

There are a lot like that.


Sour: As we discuss all the terrorists killing Americans in America, let’s recall when the DO”J” pointed out the real enemy of our nation!

There are, in increasingly frightening numbers, cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal.

They’re not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.

Anybody who thinks the Constitution is meant to be a check on our gov’t is obviously the real terrorist!


Sweet: This blog by a dude in Canadia who just goes around taking pictures of stuff.

Like this one “Highway 36 south of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan August 20, 2016.”

let er rip

That gets my accelerator foot tingling. You would hear my “Yeeeeeee-haaaaaaa” in Vancouver.


Sour: This poor lady has to deal with Hillary! getting away with leaving her son to die.


Sweet: Civilization!

While GMOs may involve splicing genes from other organisms (such as bacteria) to give plants desired traits – like resistance to pests, selective breeding is a slower process whereby farmers select and grow crops with those traits over time.

From bananas to eggplant, here are some of the foods that looked totally different before humans first started growing them for food.

That’s what I try to tell my family who watch Dr. Oz and think GMO is GONNA KILL US ALL!!!!!!!, we’ve just gotten better at choosing how we want food to look and act. It’s a difference in scale, not kind.


Sweet and Sour:

I dare you to watch this trailer and not tear up.


I don’t tear up easily, but that got me.

Dogs deserve better but they’re stuck with us.

I’m not sure what happened with this post, I thought I had posted it a week or more ago.

So, while it’s old, it’s still relevant.

Why? Cuz I fucking said so.


How many people die because of the lies and distortions promulgated by our fine media betters?


The most visible lately are the cops shot by people egged on by the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot!” and other BLM bullshits, but they aren’t the only ones.

Like this woman who was going to hitch-hike across the Middle East to prove to unhelpful types like me that Islam is Peace (instead of the real translation which is Submission), and that all the folks in the Middle East are just friends she hasn’t met yet.

Needless to say, it didn’t end well.

The naked body of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the northern city of Gebze on Friday.

The worst part? That’s as “well duh” a moment as there could be but I’m a racist hater for noticing it and in EUnuchstan, I’d be arrested for saying that.


Via Paco (I didn’t use his link because they wouldn’t let me cut n paste any text from their article. Way to go!!!! You idjits stopped me from quoting you!!!!!!! You won!!!!!! I won’t link you!!!!!! That’s a better way to cut circulation than anything I do here.)

Two unrelated, awesome, things.

Bride walks down aisle with man who has her father’s heart. (No, he didn’t rip it out and show it to her while it was still beating and no, not her father’s gay lover, her father was an organ donor who was murdered. Sheesh)

That’s surprising and heart warming. (*smack*)

Sorry, but it is awesome.

Actually, now I’m not sure if this is awesome. I thought so at first but then I started thinking it was evil.


Needs more Hypnotoad.

All glory to the Hypnotoad!


The reason I’m leaning toward “evil” is because it’s just fanfiction so there’s no movie, just a com-tease.

Of course, if Hollywood made it they’d screw it up so I should be happy. They’d probably make Bender a fembot and the movie would be about fighting Nixon’s head and Trump’s head who are all racist against illegal mutant immigration.

But is that Key or Peele playing Hermes at the end? It surely looks like it.

If so, maybe they will make it! And maybe they will not screw it up! And maybe the RNC won’t cum in my mouth!


Important Update!!!!!!

An even worse tease of  a fake movie!!!







And they aren’t even hiding it anymore.

State spokestool should really practice keeping a straight face if he’s going to keep that job.



Unrelated except in that all  segments of the Dem political/media/entertainment complex are becoming increasingly transparent.

This wymyn is all over teh world records and I’m sure you’ve all heard all about her in glowing tribute after hagiography. She’s

…broken some pretty unique Olympic records during her years of competing. She’s the only American to win individual medals in five straight Olympics – only American at all, …. Her presence in Rio also makes her the only American Olympian to compete on 5 continents. Beyond American records, she is the only woman to win three Olympic golds in…

In addition to holding records, she’s overcome challenges that many Olympians would find it hard to overcome – like having her specialized sport discontinued and being forced to take up a new one. Her prized equipment was stolen at one point.


Yup, I’m sure her name is on the tip of your tongue.

Oh, I notice I missed some stuff in my cuttn n pastn, there should be the word, “shooting” in there a few times.

Can’t make that sort of woman a role model.

So…. minitrue much?

To make it funnier, as I was writing this the “Do you think I can’t do this because I’m a wymyns?”  commercial came on.


Via Uncle

I published this then unpublished it because I meant to write about this.

I watched the original version of Walking Tall last night, I’m not sure if I’m happy about that. I haven’t seen it in probably 15-20 years. I remember it was good, but not how good.

You see, I like the version with the Rock (I like most the Rock movies)but I think I can say without hyperbole that the original was 10 trillions times better.

For those who don’t know, it was based on a real story, the movie showed about what you’d expect of deepest Tennessee in the 60s, the women weren’t all models, the men looked and talked like rednecks, the casino was a couple tables in a bar somewhere on a dirt road. It was also filmed in 73, I would give just about anything to go have my pick of cars…drooooool. Big blocks shoving 2 1/2 tons of Detroit steel down the road gives me a chubby.

His wife was murdered in a hit attempt on him, the funeral scene was very powerful. As he was lying in the hospital after the hit, his 8 or so year old son walked in with a pump shotgun and box of shells to stand guard. nobody said squat.

He also made a black man a deputy, there’s actually a darn funny scene when he tells the black man to arrest a bunch of good ole boy rednecks bothering the ‘black’ bar.

Now that I’ve seen the old one, I realize the Rock’s remake was barely better a representation than Starship Troopers, it did little more than mine the original for some names and the gist of the plot, I just don’t think I’ll be able to watch it anymore.

It’s been leached of all its heart.

I jinxed it

Posted: September 4, 2013 by socklessjoe in Brevity etc., FAIL, The Big Screen

Christina Hendricks no longer to play a stripper, but to have “more important” part.


Two totally different movies, both just happening to revolve around some apocalyptic scenario.

“This is the End” was very disappointing.  I mean, I knew it was going to be dumb — that was the premise.  But it was idiotic, and not particularly funny, unless you find the consumption of copious amounts of drugs to be inherently funny.

I mean, there are stoner flicks, where people get high and do dumb things have wacky adventures, and there are movies where drugs are part of the main plot, and there are movies where there is incidental drug use that’s about setting and character development, and of course, some overlap among those three categories. But the first, I dunno, twenty minutes or so of this film is basically and ode to recreational drugs, first and foremost weed, to little apparent cinematic end.  Ok, coked-out Michael Cera was mildly amusing.

Seth Rogen smokes weed? You don’t say…

Anyway, the movie has its moments, but most of those were in the trailer.  I give it a 3 on a 10-scale.

“World War Z” was about a 6.5 on a 10-scale.  Disclaimer: I have had no exposure to the source material.  As a basic horror film it was a little light on the gore.  There is very little character development of anybody other than Brad Pitt, and not much there either.

The IDF chick is sorta cute despite the GI-Jane haircut.  She sticks with Pitt longer than anybody else during his adventures, but we never really learn anything about her either.

Zombie films need to be either about (1) the interaction of the survivors, (2) the development of some sort of Christ-figure capable of saving everybody, or (3) pure gore and terror.  WW-Z was light on all three.

To the extent that WW-Z was at all terrifying, it was through the use of not just fast-zombies, but crystal-meth fast zombies in the opening scene.  I mean, it was practically a river of zekes flowing through the streets of Philadelphia.  When you start questioning the plausibility of the zombie apocalypse scenario in a zombie film, that’s not exactly starting out on the right foot.

The end was anticlimactic.  I suppose in this sense they were probably bound by the source material, but I really couldn’t know that for sure.  If you like zombie movies, go see it, but if you’re on the fence about this one, just go ahead and skip it.

Anybody see Man of Steel?
