Ruminations

Posted: November 8, 2017 by veeshir in PEBKAC, Random Crap

Thank you all for your kind words, it was a tough time.

So I’ve been yelling at the TV a lot lately so I figure I’ll yell at you people. Not sure if I’m back, but if I’m posting, I’m probably going to keep posting.
If I did this for money I’d feel much more obligated to keep posting all the time. That’s probably why I don’t try to make any money at it. I like blogging, if I had to do it I wouldn’t like it as much. No links today, just ruminations.

The reason I was getting burned out even before the week when Kago and my father died, it was the same shit we’ve been going on about for nearly a decade. That’s not the ‘editorial we’, the ‘rhetorical we’ or even the ‘royal we’, but the actual ‘collective we’. That includes the folks here and at pretty much every righty blog that’s not a member in good standing of the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party (Hey Allah! you used to be so cool!)

At least more people are now noticing that Hillary and Obama are lawless, corrupt, possibly-treasonous scumbags. Minitrue is still denying it, but their stranglehold on information is getting more and more tenuous as their lies get more ridiculous. Like the edited koi fish incident. How childish, churlish and stupid do you have to be to try to manufacture something that stupid? CNN childish, churlish and stupid, that’s how.

A visual representation.

I am a little pissed off at the internet today, why do they always leave the low-hanging fruit for me?

A reworking of the old Sexual Assault rifle from years gone by.

Old and busted

New Hotness

Scary, huh?

The funniest/most annoying part is how they’re freaking out about how the murderously crazy gunman’s illegal acquired gun was an AR-15 without noting that the gun that took him out was also an AR-15. They also refuse to admit that the guy went to one of the few places in Texas that’s Gun-Free! (actual results often seem to vary), there’s a reason murderous assholes with guns go to gun free zones.

One thing, if anybody’s interested in an AR, my buddy knows a pawn shop owner and he’s bemoaning the fact that there’s a glut of ARs in his shop. During Obama’s POTUSy ARs were being sold at record rates, now people are selling them so there’s a shitload of them out there as some people unload them. The guy said if you see an AR on the wall for $700, offer half, you’ll probably get it. Start walking out to see how low they’ll go. I see tons of them on the local Armslist.com page, I wonder how many are selling.

What with all the murderous Dems going on killing sprees, I’m actually planning on carrying, I’ve rarely carried but the odds of a Dem killing me are just too high for me to ignore. I don’t own anything that’s really concealable, Even my Sig subcompact is a double-stack .45 so not very concealable in light, AZ clothing.

I’m starting to look for a Ruger LCP or LC9. My subcompact Sig is doublestack .45ACP and that’s harder to ‘conceal’ when you’re carrying, I like the shape and feel of the Ruger. I haven’t fired one, but I do trust Ruger to make a decent weapon,  even if it is a fucking poodle-shooter. I usually have something in my trunk, usually a 1911, but now I want something on my person. Sigh, it’s so 2017 that the people who want to take my guns are the one causing me to want to fucking carry.

WTF is going on in fucking VA? The Dem candidate called them racists and they still elected him? Was Gillespie that much of a fucking tool?

At least I escaped in a balloon during the Obama presidency.

 

So personal stuff.

 

I started my CNC classes last month. The last two weeks have really sucked. I had to take “Computer Essentials”. It was 8 days of ‘learning’ how to use the internet, email, gmail, google, google docs, Word and Excel. Also, how to find and use files on your computer. I did have some problems with Excel, but that was because I hate Excel more than Powerpoint, both are bureaucrats’ tools, but they didn’t make me ‘learn’ PPT.

One guy made the mistake of taking all the tests without doing the work. Sure, he got a 98% or so, but he was done in two days so the teachers gave him extra work. I did all the practice stuff and then took the tests and even going slow I was done with 2 days left. It sucked trying to look busy for two days. The only one I skipped was the “searching” module. I only spent 12 years at the Patent Office searching for prior art for patent applications, I sorta have a grasp on how to do a fucking search. I also used Word every single day of those 12 years.

Another class is Employability Skills For Industry. It teaches people not to pick their nose at job interviews and stuff like that.

The first one was useful for people who didn’t know computers at all,  about 1/3 of the class, that last one is useful for Millenials who don’t have any idea what the real world is like, without safe spaces and with people who expect you to be professional and do your job. I have a pretty good grasp on that stuff. I’m really looking forward to the second to last class that ‘teaches’ you how to interview and make a resume. That’s going to be one long week.

But in between, ahhh, the in between, I’ll be spending a few weeks learning to run a manual lathe, a few weeks on a manual drill press, a couple weeks on a surface grinder, 3 or 4 weeks on a CNC lathe, three or four weeks on a CNC drill press and a couple weeks on CAM systems. Since I have a degree so I know the math and have rudimentary skills on all the machines, the instructors told me they’re going to figure out stuff to challenge me. While they’re teaching basic algebra and trig to the rest of the class, I’ll be doing tutoring some of them but mostly doing other stuff, like more advanced CAM and a bunch of CAD, which I’m very rusty on. I have Autocad 14, from 1997 or so, I’m pretty sure they’ve updated it. They’re also expecting me to be much better on the machine tools as I already know the basics, I just need practice on using them. The CNC machines are all less than 2 years old, they’re still shiny. I get done in late August so in a year I should be working a decent job and looking for my compound in the desert.

 

I went to a wedding in NOVA last week. I flew in Friday evening, went to the wedding on Saturday in Clinton, VA and flew home on Sunday. It was busy. I was going to go to Landmark Mall and get them something crystal, like a sugar bowl and creamer set or something. My friend works near there and would pick me up on his way home, but I found out that Landmark Mall is closed!

So I went to a different mall with a Macy’s, but you have to order crystal at Macy’s and can pick it up when it comes in. Itshay!

So I strolled around the mall and found a place that looked like a thrift store for rich folks, they had a $3,000 dollar end table and stuff like that. I saw some nice tea sets. I picked out one for $250, it was right next to this gaudy one for $300. When the husband went to get the one I chose the woman told me about the ‘gaudy’ one, it was Versace. Real Versace she said. Since it was a reputable place, I believed her. She even showed me the watermark or whatever. I know selling fakes with the real name is really bad and this didn’t look like that kind of place. It had a tea pot, a sugar bowl, cream pitcher and six cups and saucers. When I realized it was Versace I figured, that’s not Chinese Restaurant gaudy, that’s Versace gaudy! So I got that one. I joked with the lady that I would say it I paid $700, she suggested I go higher. My friend and his wife gushed so much, and my friend berated for spending too much money so I checked to see what the deal was. I figured it probably cost like $500 or $600. The cup and saucer goes for $200, the tea pot for $600 or $700. I’m less sure it’s real but my friend checked and he said it looked real. I told him how much I spent, I didn’t want him thinking I’d spent $3k. He’s probably my best friend, but really, that’s just ridiculous.

The funny part is that if I had realized how much that should have cost I probably wouldn’t have bought it. I didn’t want to buy some show piece, I just wanted to buy a fucking tea set my Korean friend and his wife could use. Now they’re (she’s) looking for china cabinets to display the fucking thing. That’s messed up.

Kago.

I still miss ‘Tard Dog. He wasn’t a good dog, but he was surely entertaining. A perfect 21st century dog. Mostly useless but fun to have around, so long as you didn’t mind him being a dickhead. It was funny watching people around him. After a while, everybody fucked with the puppy. I mean everybody. From people to dogs to cats. They soon realized that even though he looked like a cross between a bear and a wolf he was just Tard Dog, and then they realized he was a dickhead and messed with him. People would do stuff like give him an empty styrofoam take-out box just to see the disappointment as he stuck his nose in it. Or give a bone to another dog just to see the look on his face. Of course, he remembered that and usually had a response. He stayed in my buddy Warren’s RV a lot, he had his spots. When Warren slept on the couch, Kago had a spot on the floor, when Warren slept on the bed, Kago slept on the couch. One time, my buddy had a friend stay over after a night drinking, he slept on the couch. Warren said Kago kept sighing, he was good at sighing when pissed of. In the morning, the guy swung around and went to put on his shoes, When he put his feet on the floor near his shoes he found that Kago had shit next to the shoes. Squish. It’s hard to get pissed off when you’re laughing. That’s the only reason Kago lived so long. Another time Warren had some friends, a married couple, stay in the RV. Warren slept on the couch and they slept in the bedroom and closed the door. Kago’s spot was in the doorway.  So the second or third morning he slept against the door into the bedroom and refused to move. The guy was yelling and pushing at the door but Kago pretended he was asleep and wouldn’t let him open the door to get out. He didn’t move until Warren moved him.

There’s a reason he was called dickhead.

I didn’t realize until the last year or so, but I’m pretty sure he was a Belgian Shepard. Looking at pictures, you can see that he’s almost a perfect copy. He had a spotted tongue which I thought was because he was part Chow, but Belgians have spotted tongues as well. Reading up on Belgians I saw the quote, “Don’t try to impose your will on this dog!”, which fits Kago to a T. He was always trying to raise his standing and took my commands as suggestions. He listened perfectly…until he didn’t.

His full name was Kagogi the Destroyer. He really earned the last name. I still have the full line from the Kagogi signature collection. From hats to books to luggage. The shoes were generally destroyed, as well as some of the hats. I also had to buy more screened doors and window screens than I care to remember, and who can forget the door trim and door knob?

Not me, that’s who not.

My life is much easier, I don’t have to worry about Kago getting into everything, but much more boring.

I’m just not in the mood, but I have a bunch of tabs open so here we go.

Via Doug at my favorite ‘Stan, with this illustration,

we see this.

Republican congressional leaders perched on the couches in the Oval Office froze in mid-smile on Wednesday afternoon when they realized President Trump was bypassing them to cut a short-term spending and debt ceiling deal with Democrats, and not them.

It’s funny that the Dems are so powerful that from their minority status they can do this deal the GOP is against while the GOP cannot do anything the Dems are against.

Why…. it almost seems as if they’re playing us!?!?!??!?!?!??!!??!?

 

The Debt Ceiling!!!!!!! Debate!!!!! is utterly stupid and ‘inside politics’. The only time they pretend to care about debt is when they have to raise the ceiling.

During the Obama years they huffed and puffed and blew the ceiling down each and every time. I saw an NRO article the other day where they said something stupid about how the GOP beat Obama over this and now Trump’s screwing the whole thing up. Of course, during the Obama years the GOP spent more than a $trillion more than they took in each and every year and yet somehow they Won!!!!! all while never passing a budget.

Don Surber sez that the Dems worked with Hitler because of the failure of the fascist Anti-fa fascist, I think this is more likely.

 The reason is the Democrats need this win. August was horrible for them. They revealed what ugly, hateful, mean, spiteful, and nasty people they are through their Antifa henchmen.

Most Americans think little of the Confederate statues. Risking a civil war to tear them down seems unusually dumb even for Democrats.

Their followers are going fucking insane and the rest of America is noticing that and that the Dems don’t do anything, all they do is stop Congress from doing anything. Ironically, they’re not really stopping anything. The GOP doesn’t want to do what they were elected to do but their failure theater requires that we think the Dems are stopping them. That’s pretty funny.

The Dems needed something the media could claim was a victory for them, but it wasn’t. It was just Trump doing what he’s supposed to do, fuck with the Establishment.

I also disagree with this.

It’s over.

The election is finally over.

Democrats finally have accepted the results.

The funny  part is that the GOP has still not accepted them. They’re still pissed off at us for not jubileeing for Jeb!.

As for the Dems, as FrnakJ explained long ago, there are two classes of Dems. The smelly footsoldiers, who are getting more and more violently mostly-peaceful and the Alphas who come up with shit to rile them up.

I’ve come to believe that the leadership does not believe the stuff they spew at all. I used to think they did, but now I’m pretty sure they do not so what matters is what they  can get Minitrue to spew and Minitrue is the tail trying to wag the dog. Should be interesting.

 

And lest we forget all the GOP ‘Victories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ in the Obama years when they FOUGHT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! over the budget.

Ryan, McConnell Offer Obama-Era Spending Bill With No Border Wall Funding – Updated

Updated with Trump saying he’s fer it. Yeah, he’s still a northeast liberal, you take the bad with the fucking with our betters.

 

Eh, you’ve probably seen this elsewhere but it does make me laugh.

NBC News has published an article incorrectly claiming that New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who is on trial for corruption — is a Republican.

And people think I’m paranoid when I call them Minitrue.

 

The rest of Minitrue were more subtle, they couldn’t find time to cover the corruption trial of a sitting United States Senator.

All three major network newscasts ignored the first day of Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez’s (N.J.) corruption trial during their Wednesday night airings.

Assholes.

 

An Idea Whose Time Has Come!

What America needs is a “New Party,” that would be dedicated to “returning America to the rule of law under the Constitution,” says Angelo Codevilla, professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University.

We can let the GOP have their Inclusive party without the people who’ve been voting for them and giving them money.

The other day I saw a similar idea over at Ace’s, but he figured there’d be 4 parties.

I figure it’ll be three, the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party filled with the Elitest!!!! of the Elite!!!!!!!!!! who Elite!!!!!!, another party fulll of disaffected GOP and Dem Americans who like the America of the end of the 20th and early 21st centuries and would like to get it back, and the last one with crazed leftists of all stripes. At least, they’ll try to start their Reality Based Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but they’re short on planning skills and seem overheated. These people may want to check out the review guide for some ACs to get their temperature down! Seriously though they do not have any sense of discipline and only know how to do what they’re told to do (see, FrnakJ above) so I’d expect that one to fizzle out pretty quickly and violently.

 

More substance to Trump’s Unsubstantiated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! comment about illegal voting padding Hillary’s totals.

More than 5,000 out-of-state voters may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle…

 

News We All Knew But Minitrue and Never-Trumpers (Hey NY Post!) Would Like To Have Us Ignore!

So how surprising is this Totally New Information!!!!!?

“We’ve known for months that more voters cast ballots without any proof of actually living in New Hampshire than the differentials for either federal contest there in 2016,” he said.

That new and surprising.

 

Wow. This is both pathetic and scary. So endy and uhhhh…. lamey.

College Activists March on the Cafeteria: What Do We Want? Hydroponic Cilantro!
Students across the U.S. are making some very precise demands of school chefs and dining halls, including a churrascaria, a gelateria and a sushi bar

 

Students returning to the University of Texas at Austin this fall will have twice as much help wrestling with some of the big questions that college presents.

For instance, does water contain gluten? And, is all food genetically modified?

When I went to college in 1981 people were  upset when they ran out of PB&J, how times have changed.

 

In Elgin Marble News, this pisses me off.

600 iconic movie props memorabilia on sale in London including Indiana Jones’ whip and Star Wars Y-wing

WTF are they doing selling them in fucking London? Those are American treasures! Bring them back!

Although maybe it was a package deal.

Also up for grabs is the original costume worn by Will Ferrell in the classic Christmas film Elf.

Not sure if 600 other movie props are worth getting rid of that, there’s a  dumpster right over there (points right).

 

From the Barrel of a Gun we see this.

A different, simpler time.

 

I really like Sig, my SigPro 2340 is a sweet piece. I also like Sig because they really make some cool shit, they used to make a rifle barrel that could be made into a silencer with just a sleeve (or some other simple part) that freaked out the ATF and now this.

I don’t own a Glock (I’m prejudiced against them for some reason) or a High Point but I’ve always liked the idea of a ‘pistol into a carbine’ kit, I might have to get one of those now.

 

What’s bigger than yer anus?

Jupiter!

 

There are some awesome shots of Jupiter there, mostly much closer than that.

Look at the band across the upper part with what looks, to me, like evenly spaced hurricanes, you can see them in a bunch of different shots. Weird. It looks like a belt I saw on a guy in a western once.

 

Let’s end on street art.

Unless, is that a Maine license plate?

Fucking Tard Dog.

His 14th birthday is coming up and he’s been acting very old, he doesn’t even try to chase cats or get up to bark at passers by anymore. He pretty much stopped eating for a few days, not even McD’s cheeseburgers by Wed. I took him to the vet and he pretty much told me to put him to sleep (Kago, not the vet), he found a ‘growth’ in his abdomen.

So I spent a few days just waiting for him to die. It wasn’t a happy time.  Then….. he started eating again last night and even crapped and now he’s back to what he was last week. I was ready for him to die, that sucked, and then he didn’t. Fucking Dickhead, he even fucks with me about death. I still think he’s close, he won’t even eat cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets until evening and he won’t finish what I give him, but for now he’s acting okay.

 

I still tubed but I didn’t feel like posting.

Now that I’ve depressed you too, let’s tube!

If it’s California so you know they’re denying reality!

 In November 2014, California voters approved Proposition 47, which downgraded drug possession and many property crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. As Debra Saunders reminds us, proponents argued that lesser punishment for low-level offenders would enhance public safety.

But wait, reality makes a comeback!

theft from cars is up 47 percent this year over the same period in 2014. Auto theft is up by 17 percent. Robberies are up 23 percent. And aggravated assaults are up 2 percent. (To be fair, burglaries are down 5 percent).

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

Burglaries are probably down because it’s much easier to rob someone on the street, less travel.

 

Yellowcake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An Al Qaeda affiliate has seized control of uranium mines in Africa with the intent of supplying the material to Iran, according to a diplomatic letter from a top Somali official appealing to the U.S. for “immediate military assistance.”

al Quaeda is mining uranium.

So I guess now we know where they were On The Run!!!!!!!!!!! to.

Why…. it’s almost as if they weren’t actually on the run at all!?!?!?!?!?!!!!??!!!!

 

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOP voters device

Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children

Who says they’re “conservative”? Besides themselves, their staff and Minitrue I mean. Certainly not this spitting in my face.

Little bit of idiotic editorializing

offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.

No, really.

That’s a Life-Raft to Save Trump from Making A Huge Mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that much of the country wants him to make.

Well, much of the non-Elite!!!!!!!!!!! part of the country.

So that’s the legislative agenda that Trump is stopping them from achieving I guess.

 

 

The other day I wrote that I was leaning toward 2+2=5, now I see that 5+5+5 does not equal 15.

I’ve seen people blaming that on Common Core but I disagree.

Don’t get me wrong, both the ways they show to teach math are idiotic and don’t work (trust me on that, I’ve tried to teach algebra to kids who do multiplication that way).

The whole point of multiplication is to not need to fucking add after all, why the hell would you want them to count lines when they’re supposed to be multiplying? Why would you spend so much time teaching them to add when you’re trying to teach them multiplication? Getting them to memorize the multiplication table is how you teach that shit, that idiocy is going backward.

But the point is that I figure it’s an unqualified bureaucrat who only has the answer key and it said “3+3+3+3+3” so that’s the only answer.

I bet a dollar I could get this teacher to agree with Abbot and Costello if I could edit “Common Core Multiplication” into the beginning of this vid.

 

Taking a break from That’s Funny! (and endy), let’s look at That’s Not Funny!

For those who are trying to defend Trump as not being a Tool of Russia, this ain’t gonna help.

The State Department on Thursday announced that “in the spirit of parity” it would force Moscow to close its Consulate General office in San Francisco

Previous admins forced them to stay in that insane asylum and Trump is letting them leave? Now I have to wonder if they really Hacked The Election for him.

 

After a few months of this number going down but that seems to have stalled.

Tthe (sic, and not my sic!) number of Americans over age 16 who are not in the labor force – for whatever reason – remained stubbornly high in August, at 94,785,000

That sucks.

 

This one made me laugh.

A Georgia police officer who told a woman during a traffic stop not to worry because police “only kill black people”…

But since he made fun of Black Lives Matter, I’ve seen local news assholes calling it a ‘racist remark’, it’s not racist, it’s fucking hilarious, but…

No matter how funny, he made fun of a Protected Group so…. That’s Not Funny!!!!!!!!!!! and he Must Be Punished!

Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register told a news conference: “I’ve already said that in no context can I tolerate this kind of language. And so I don’t really think that we can sit here and justify any type of language when the verbage is what we heard on that video.”

You can even see a clip of Reverend Al talking about the Racism Inherent In The System if you’re so inclined.

 

This is funny, I do wish I had seen the incident(s) that required this sign.

 

Baltimore is wondering what to do to hide it’s slave-owning, Confederate-sympathies past.

(Baltimore Mayor) Pugh has appointed a task force of city workers to decide where the statues should go and what “creative ideas” should replace them.

It’s funny but Bulgaria’s already solved the problem of trying to hide monuments to Democrats’ heroes.

 

Someone should send this to all the Democrats wondering what to do about troublesome examples of Democrats’ past.

Too bad they’re not worried about commie statues here.

 

 

 

 

But I’m leaning toward 2+2=5.

Yeah, 1984 has been on Comet, they’re taking a break from Made For MST 3000 Movies.

Speaking of 1984, Minitrue! LA Times edition

In writing about violent fascistAnti-fa fascists, they have to write this

The clashes came despite widespread calls from activists and elected officials across the Bay Area for peaceful civil disobedience and underscore Berkeley’s growing reputation for violent reaction by the far left. Other protests earlier this year in the city turned ugly, with far-left and far-right forces fighting in the streets.

No, it wasn’t “Far Right”, it was Milo Yiannpoulis (sp?) and some people who went to listen to him, Milo is not Far Right, he’s a provocateur but he’s not Far Right. He’s a gay man who says stuff that people aren’t allowed to say.

But the LA Times has to lie about him and his supporters because the Tea Party stopped doing protests, they didn’t accomplish shit, and that leaves a Lie About People We Disagree With vacuum in their lives.

 

 

I didn’t know this.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave an unscripted pep talk last week to a group of servicemen on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State.

Mattis was in Iraq on Tuesday for a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi, Task and Purpose reports. But he later stopped off to deliver a pep talk to American troops stationed in Jordan, on the front lines of Operation Inherent Resolve.

Why do we have troops in Jordan? I can understand the Arabian peninsula, but Jordan? There doesn’t seem to be an upside to that. It puts them on a hit list and puts us too close to Palestinian terrorists. Next to ISIS, they’re the mad dogs of the Islamic jihadi world.

 

I love casual ways to say, “WTF did you expect?”

I saw this article about federal flood ‘insurance’ going broke in a big way and I thought, “Of course. There’s a reason regular, need-to-make-a-profit insurance companies charge so much for flood insurance.” I was wondering if the article was going to be all, “We don’t know why this happened!” and “Needs more money tax money!”.

Well, I was wrong. They do actually, in passing, mention that it was meant to fail. I wasn’t wrong about more tax money. That would just be ridiculous.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the singular source of flood insurance for most Americans, is already $23 billion in debt after servicing prior natural disasters, including Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina

Katrina. They still owe money from fucking Katrina.

I mean, it’s bad enough they ‘owe’ money from Sandy (2012) but from fucking Katrina (200fucking5)?!?!?!?!?!

As for “owe”, that’s a load of rich, creamery, fromunda-lokbox sweat. That’s just more part of the federal debt* we’re buried under.  The article does mention that, kudos to them.

Most illuminating use of “Some Believe” EVER!

The government has already said it would be impossible for the flood program to repay such a staggering amount of dues, causing some to believe the program needs a major overhaul to prevent structural debt accumulations every time there is a disaster situation.

The “some” do not include such luminaries as McCain, McConnell, Ryan, Flake, Lyndsey Graham  and the rest of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party.

For the record, I wrote that before I read this passage near the end.

However, the urgency and gravity of the situations in Texas and Louisiana could pressure lawmakers into pushing through a quick reauthorization before the program before its September 30 expiration

But of course.

Now, the casual, “Well, duh.”

“Since the program offers rates that do not fully reflect the risk of flooding, NFIP’s overall rate-setting structure was not designed to be actuarially sound in the aggregate, nor was it intended to generate sufficient funds to fully cover all losses.”

The names people were called for noticing that when they first started that program. “There’s a reason insurance companies charge so much for flood insurance. ” Insurance companies are heartless bloodsuckers! What, do you hate flood victims? You heartless fascist!”

If the media wants to Get Trump!!! (by that I mean piss his followers off), they should focus on that.

But they’re such insular fools that they don’t understand how anybody could be against that. It’s What Jesus Would Do after all. He was all about taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor. Sort of a hippy Robin Hood.

 

*I checked the Debt Clock and they’re still at just under $20 trillion. We blew by that long ago, remember 2 years ago when the debt clock stopped for months?

In June, I linked this story that noted that the official US debt hadn’t increased in months.

90 Days: Treasury Says Debt Has Been Frozen at $18,112,975,000,000

So where’s the debt clock now?

$18,4 trillion

In other words, instead of the around $20 trillion where it should be considering the way it’s moved in the Age of Obama, we’re a $trillion and a half lower.

The rule of law, she is dead. The gov’t lying to us is just normal, operation procedure.

 

Related,

Although historically, the IRS chose tax returns to audit based on internal mathematical mistakes or mismatches with third party reports (such as W-2s), the IRS is now engaging in data mining of public and commercial data pools (including social media) and creating highly detailed profiles of taxpayers upon which to run data analytics. This Article argues that current IRS practices, mostly unknown to the general public are violating fair information practices. This lack of transparency and accountability not only violates federal law regarding the government’s data collection activities and use of predictive algorithms…

The IRS has been telling judges to suck their balls for years now, they’re above the law and they know it.

Understatement of the day!

…but may also result in discrimination.

A whole bunch of Tea Party organizations were unavailable for comment. Because the IRS is busy shutting them up.

The rule of law, she is dead.

 

Nother way the media could Get Trump!!!! is talk about his reversing the ban on selling military equipment to the police. I’d bet the media thinks that I’d be for that cuz I support Blue Lives Matter (cuz I hate black folks), but what they don’t understand is that the reason we have Trump is because so many people don’t trust the fucking gov’t. It’s not whatever hate-crime they think it is, or any of them really, it’s about telling our betters to go fuck themselves.

 

Eh, let’s go to They’re All Gonna Die!!!, it’s so much less stressful. Hell, I look fondly back on We’re All Gonna Die!!!, we’re at We’re All Gonna Be Subjects if our fine betters get their way.

India said on Monday it had agreed with China to end a months-long military standoff at a strategically important disputed area in the Himalayas and troops had begun disengaging.

India’s foreign ministry said it had reached an “understanding” after talks with Beijing about the tense confrontation in an area near the Indian border that is claimed by both China and Bhutan.

Oh crap, you know what it means when murderous, expansionist, commie dictators say there’s an ‘understanding’?

Its statement suggested that both sides had agreed to pull back, although the Chinese foreign ministry said only that Indian troops were withdrawing.

Yeah, that.

 

I never liked Joel Osteen, I’ve never watched him much but I thought he was Jim Bakker with less make-up.

Fractal cuttin n pastin cuz the linked NY Post article put cause after effect.

The multimillionaire televangelist came under enormous criticism for refusing to take in evacuees at his 16,800-seat, tax-exempt house of worship. Instead, he tweeted Monday about how “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding. That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”…

We have never closed our doors,” a Lakewood Church spokesman said in a statement to CNN. “We will continue to be a distribution center to those in need. We are prepared to house people once shelters reach capacity. Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm.”

What. Ever.

There are televangelists I have respected, but not him.

 

This leads to us to one question.

 after a dispute with her roommate.

Troopers say at around 12:02 p.m. Saturday, Melissa Lena Odomin, 34, drove an ATV into the residence, broke the windows of a truck then drove that truck into the home.

Two vehicles, and no, the question doesn’t relate to alcohol.

Troopers also say alcohol played a role in the incident.

No!

The question I wondered was if the roommate was her boyfriend, because I think I dated that girl. She was great except she didn’t take vodka well and wouldn’t accept that before she started drinking it.

 

Speaking of which.

ISIS suicide bomber actually hoping for 72 experienced sluts 

A recent honor graduate of the Islamic State Suicide Bomber School of Excellence has publicly voiced concerns over the sexual experience of the 72 women awaiting him in the afterlife, sources confirmed today…

According to sources, Hussein asked his instructors if perhaps the virginity of his eternal harem was negotiable.

There does seem to be a flaw in that belief.

 

Watched Dick Cavett who spent an hour with Kirk Douglas, it was pretty good.

He told a story about getting on an elevator at a hotel where he was appearing.

There was something else going on at the hotel and all the people had name tags with their home towns on their chests. One guy says, “Hey, you’re Kirk Douglas!” and he responds, “Hey Joe!” Joe asks how he knows his name, Kirk goes, “Joe Tyne, right? From Tulsa?”, now Joe’s freaking out. “How do you know that?” As the elevator doors opened Kirk says, “I can’t believe you don’t remember!” and walks away.

That’s hilarious.

It was cool even though Cavett sucks at interviewing, all he does is ask questions like. “What made you decide to become an actor?” and other questions that basically ask for anecdotes, the same questions every interviewer asks every actor. but he had such cool people that their anecdotes are cool. Like that one with Kirk Douglas or when Groucho was messing with Truman Capote. Cavett loses control of the show fairly often.

 

Took the Caballero to get the a/c fixed. When I got it back the antenna was gone. Since it was some half-assed aftermarket job like much of what the previous owner did, the mount is gone. Uckfay. How the hell did HeyZeus find this guy in freaking Gilbert? Sonomabatch.

What The Hell?

Posted: August 28, 2017 by veeshir in Uncategorized

What the hell is going on out there? Our betters are upping their attacks on us and the GOP is all in on those attacks.

In Berkely, that bastion of Free Speech, Love, Tolerance and Mostly-Peace we have mobs of organized anarchists attacking anybody and everybody for the sin of not being Loving, Tolerant and Mostly-Peaceful and even worse sin of not being violently opposed to freedom as the police stand back and let them get their violence on.

How can they justify that? Why isn’t the media talking about the violence inherent in the system or talking about how the cops are letting these vicious, violent thuggles to be viciously and violently thuggish? I can understand hiding corruption and lies spewing from their side but to ignore vicious, violent repression of anything and anyone they deem unworthy of freedom is a despicableness too fucking far.

And the most fucked up part is how they violently attack anybody not of their brand of leftism, that makes them basically the same, if currently less murderous, as any jihadi group who kills everybody who doesn’t believe in their brand of Islam.

 

Meanwhile, Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of enforcing the law as the people who elected him wanted, and the GOP is all in on bashing Trump for that.

Weasels gotta weasel.  Jeff Flake, John McCain and now House Speaker Paul Ryan all stand in opposition to President Trump pardoning Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The same fucking members of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party were okay with Obama pardoning all manner of drug dealers, traitors and actual terrorists but they’re pissed off about everything Trump does because Trump is a doody-head and is the symbol of the threat to their oligarchy.

Because Arpaio was charged only with a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of six-months in jail, the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee him a right to trial by a jury of his peers. Arpaio and his attorneys repeatedly petitioned for a jury, only to be denied by Judge Bolton in March and again in May. Sources familiar with the proceedings have told Breitbart News the decision to charge only the misdemeanor was likely a ploy by federal prosecutors to avoid a jury trial in the community where Arpaio served as sheriff for more than 20 years…

Using the power of the state to put their loafers in the face of all who disagree with their fuckheadedness.

Fuck the GOP. I will vote for them locally because there’s not even a viable protest vote and we need people to stand up for us, but many of them are going the way of the national GOP so pretty soon we’ll be all alone. Except for Trump. If people against the rule of oligarchs do not stand behind Trump we’re gonna be really fucked.

 

Meanwhile, they didn’t even try to stop Obama from giving $billions to Iran until after he did it. Iran used some $hundred of millions to upgrade their navy and this.

A new United Nations report detailing chemical arms-related shipments from North Korea to Syria raises one big unanswered question: Who finances such illegal weapons deals?…

Iran’s military involvement supporting the Assad regime in Syria, as well the growing military presence of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and Iranian proxy militias in Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, and all the way to Afghanistan, has worried rival Sunni regimes in the region, as well as Israel and, increasingly, the United States.

So did the Iranians finance the chemical shipment described in the UN report?

I think we know the answer to that. We financed it second-hand thanks to Obama giving them $billions.

Obama, the gift that keeps on fucking the world and country as the national GOP attacks Trump in a vicious, dishonest and unhinged manner. .

 

Get your squeezy bulbs ready!

GOP voters device

Funny question.

Why Is Congress Not Investigating Obama’s Unprecedented Political Espionage? [VIDEO]

First, I’m glad they’re not “investigating” that shit, I already stink of fish, my fins hurt and my squeezy bulb horn is getting a new squeezy bulb (the last one wore out).

Second, they don’t want to look into that because, despite their constant lies and posturing to the contrary, they were obviously all in on it.

 

It’s sad that this has to be written.

ANALYSIS: TRUE. Our Debt Problem Is Really a Spending Problem. Economic Growth Won’t Fix It.

All debt problems are spending problems, that’s just axiomatic. You go into debt because you spent more than you took in, how else can you get a debt problem except for excessive spending? You don’t go into debt if you spend less or as much as you make.

Or are we pretending that gov’t ‘spending’ is actually an investment? Cuz that’s too stupid and insane to even comment on. That’s Nancy Pelosi insanely stupid.

 

So what else has Congress been doing instead of what they were elected to do? You really don’t want to know. Seriously.

“Whereas the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, an interstate compact agency of the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the State of Maryland, provides transportation services to millions of people each year, the safety of whom is paramount; Whereas an effective and safe Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system is essential to the commerce and prosperity of the National Capital region; Whereas the Tri-State Oversight Committee, created by a memorandum of understanding amongst these 3 jurisdictions, has provided safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority

“In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may:Enter upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice and a finding by the chief executive officer that a need exists, upon any lands, waters, and premises adjacent to the WMATA Rail System, including, without limitation, property owned or occupied by the federal government, for the purpose of making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing as the Commission may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of this MSC Compact, and such entry shall not be deemed a trespass.

Warrantless searches are now the law of the land near the DC Metro.

Now, I’m not against that in MD and DC, they like that shit, but Virginia? WTF VA? It’s sad watching a formerly decent state descend into leftist totalitarianism.

 

Which leads us to some good paranoia.

Have you noticed the multiple calls recently for increased gun control, despite the fact that all of the harm being done presently at leftist riots does not (yet) involve guns?…

What if they know something we don’t?  This sounds a little “out there,” but we live in a time when what is going on beneath the surface dwarfs what we see as the end result of someone’s planning.  So what if the discordant calls for gun control are because those politicians, anarchists, and activists (though I repeat myself) have foreknowledge of some kind of planned escalation of their brand of “protest” and are setting the stage for disingenuous “I told you sos’?  What if they have something of a timeline along which they either believe that things will happen or will make things happen, to escalate the blitzkrieg of media and hysteria by which they effect “change” – meaning a coup?

 

Some former, absolutely paranoid and crazy things are oh so thinkable anymore as we watch our betters freaking out over a threat to their power and corrupt-prestige.

We’re at the point in history where I will say that I will not allow anybody to take my guns. No way, no how. I’m a fucking American not some fucking EUnuch or commie serf, I’m a free man and intend to stay free. I’m mostly hoping that AZ will not allow that shit. I’m looking at Utah or Texas if that shit gets some steam here.

 

This is some fucked up Never-Trumper shit from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party.

Republicans brace for September chaos as Trump puts himself before party

Perhaps Trump is putting himself (and us) ahead Of Party!!!!, but the fucking party has put itself ahead of its voters so fuck them.

 Congressional Republicans are bracing for another round of name-calling and criticism from President Trump before returning to Washington next month, fearing his outbursts will complicate their legislative agenda as such behavior becomes a defining feature of his presidency.

What legislative agenda? Because they’re surely not legislatively agendaing what they’ve been elected to legislatively agendize.

Primary all of them. Get rid of every incumbent in every office in the nation, get rid of the dog-catcher of New Paltz, NY.

 

This should be interesting.

The appointment is for September 1st. On that day Muslims will invade the Colosseum  transforming it into an open-air mosque. “Il Tempo” reports that the Islamic community of Rome will gather under the Flavian Amphitheatre, as they did last October. For the Muslims the occasion is a prime feast: ‘Eid Al Adha, the  Sacrifice of Abraham.  The  Bengalese Association Dhuumcatu  organizing it, has decided to transform Via San Gregorio, under the Arch of Constantine, into a mosque,

Rome is the 9th holiest site in Islam, starting with Augustus all emperors were Muslim who had to hide their faith due to Roman Islamophobia!

Helpfully illustrated

Italians are pissed off, their betters have always treated them like crap (that’s why so many Italians are Americans now), but they at least pretended to respect their faith, now that mask is off.

 

You know who lies nearly as much as Clintons? Global Warmmongers, but then, you already knew that.

In the first graph, the blue is based on raw data from weather stations in each state since 1990. The red is the adjusted data, which it is alleged was changed to force the data to show warming instead of cooling. The original data, in blue, shows cooling, rather than warming…

According to Real Climate Science, the researchers say that “our algorithm works exactly as designed” — meaning that any potential tampering would be intentional. They also reported that “50% of USHCN adjusted data is now fake, but they have only lost 25% of their data.” The idea, Real Climate Science says, is to throw out the data they don’t want and replace it with fake data.

Think of it as a form of taquiyya, lying for your religion is not a sin!

 

This is interesting, but I’d guess oversold. The problem is that journalists are idiots so when they try to report on what actual scientists and mathematicians tell them it’s like a game of “telephone” with particularly stupid people.

3,700-year-old clay tablet has proven that the Babylonians developed trigonometry 1,500 years before the Greeks and were using a sophisticated method of mathematics which could change how we calculate today.

I’m not sure if it will “change how we calculate!!!!!!!!!”, we’re pretty good at calculating after all, but it’s pretty interesting.

 

Troll Level: Grand Master! Or is it Trump-Level Trolling?

But, but, but….Hate!!!!! Racism!!!!!! I’m sure someone on the left is saying they’re just trying to get black folk out of their neighborhoods.

 

Attica!!!!!

Heh.

 

We’ve really pissed off reality what with all the ignoring and denying we’ve been doing.

Let’s see what it has to say about the matter!

 

As we’ve discussed here, journalists in Mexico are being killed for the crime of doing actual journalism.

The 57-year-old, who was enrolled in a government program to protect journalists after years chronicling corruption in one of the deadliest countries for reporters, was one of three people killed in Tuesday’s shooting in Veracruz state…

Rios was at least the ninth journalist killed in Mexico so far this year. The spate of killings, which have targeted some of the country’s most prominent and respected reporters,

Since our fine media betters can’t be assed to notice that or else it might give ammo to Racist Haters Who Hate Them Some Brown Folk, what sort of result do we have in Mexico?

The despair and frustration he’s facing are familiar to dozens of vacationers who have been victimized at upscale, all-inclusive Mexican resorts.

Following blackouts, robberies, assaults, even the death of a loved one, they have experienced indifferent — if not hostile — treatment from resort staffers, local police, and doctors, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation has found…

And that the U.S. Department of State does little or nothing to help them.

“The laws in Mexico make it very, very difficult to hold anyone accountable,” said Nancy Winkler, a Philadelphia attorney who represented a family whose 22-year-old son drowned in a Mexican resort pool in 2007. “It’s a nightmare.”…

As much as 36% of the alcohol consumed in the country is sold or produced illegally, and potentially dangerous, according to a 2017 industry and government report

Nice. So what happens when a Mexican police officer decides to do his job?

…said the police chief overseeing her case seemed genuinely concerned and determined to help her.

Mario Gomez Frias was his name. He was chief of police for tourists. The chief tried to get the Iberostar Paraiso Maya resort to cooperate with the investigation and to provide photos of security staff.

Frias was shot dead in his squad car months later.

The worst part, for our fine betters, is that the State Dept has been forced to notice reality.

For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, see our state-by-state assessments below. U.S. government personnel and their families are prohibited from personal travel to all areas to which the Department recommends “defer non-essential travel” in this Travel Warning. As a result of security precautions that U.S. government personnel must take while traveling to parts of Mexico, our response time to emergencies involving U.S. citizens may be hampered or delayed.

They try to pretend that the Mexican gov’t is Doing Something!!!, but I really don’t like fish tacos and, as we all know, the gov’t of Mexico is a criminal enterprise and they cede control to murderous drug cartels in return for getting money and being allowed to keep living.

 

Trump’s fucking with murderous dictators, both Commie and Tsarist!

The U.S. sanctions list on North Korea just grew a little longer, as the Treasury Department turns up the heat on Pyongyang’s enablers in China and Russia.

I would quibble with this

The new sanctions on Chinese firms are sure to irk Beijing, since China has so far enforced this month’s new UN sanctions more strictly than usual.

That should read, “China has attempted to appear to enforce UN “sanctions” more strictly than usual.”

 

I’ve been worried about China needing to get frisky because of the huge imbalance in genders there, I see I didn’t take into account the Internet.

A rising number of young Chinese people are failing fitness tests required to join the army because they are too fat and masturbate too much,

We need to send more Ho-Hos, energy drinks and Hot Pockets, Stat!

 

Let’s take a break from reality and look in on Reality!!!!!, specifically, some book about Hillary.
I’m not gonna quote any, but their point is that Hillary “Put up with Bill’s sexual predation.

It’s funny, the names I’ve been called for noticing that from back in the early-mid 90s until just last year but now it’s Breaking News!!!!!!!!!!

Next you’ll tell me the media are a bunch of lying fakenewsers!

Something ugly is happening in America. Something dangerous, divisive, and destructive. And every day, the leftwing media help fan the flames of division, hatred and strife…

What’s the essence of the media’s false narrative? It says that Donald Trump got elected by running an overtly racist campaign. One that appealed to the basest elements of our society, now summed up as the alt-right. These are the people who voted for him, and these are the people who stand by him today.

They hate all Hispanics (and Mexicans in particular). They want all Muslims banished from our country (if not killed). And of course, they loathe blacks, wanting to subjugate them once again.

No! I’ve been assured that I hate me some black, brown and wymynz folk cuz I voted Trump, surely CNN wouldn’t lie to me?!?!?!?!?!

 

It seems others are noticing reality, even at CNN.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota got steamrolled by a panel of 6 people brought on to discuss Trump’s reaction to the Charlottesville tragedy.  You could tell the panel segment wasn’t going to play out the way Camerota envisioned it from the very start when she asked who was “troubled” by the President’s response to the violence in Charlottesville and precisely no one raised their hand. Meanwhile one panelist gave this response regarding Trump’s controversial “blame on both sides” comment:

 “I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I mean he addressed the problem. Let’s face reality, there are problems on both sides.”

“I think it’s ridiculous to have me choose between Hitler and Stalin which is what I consider both groups are.”

“The Antifa group to me is totally a very Stalin-ish kind of group.  If you’re willing to set fires and burn places to the ground, that doesn’t seem like a very peaceful group to me.”

Now that’s news! I will say it’s hilarious that Alisyn Camerota went full leftist after trying to pretend to be ‘fair and balanced’ for years. I wonder if she’s sincere or just realized the way to CNN stardom is dishonest fakenewsing.

 

Speaking of Tolerance, Love and Mostly-Peace, the violence at Gays for Trump events!

When called KKK I responded that I was not the KKK , but a Gay man with a Black Husband and the President of  Gays for Trump. They claimed that Milo was a Nazi,” Boykin said.

“Then someone got angry.  I was threatened by someone from Black Lives Matter. Twice I was assaulted.  I reported this to the police,” Boykin said.

With video of the assault.

Authorities are uninterested, you know, cuz the clintonista at the state level and the lefties at the local level have decided to use gov’t to put us in our place.

Gov’t over the people, on the people and fuck the people!

 

Italians might not be very warlike, but they can go all bloodbath just like any other good Europeans.

that mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro…

peaking at a conference in Rimini, north east Italy, he further revealed the extraordinary order he has given to armed police at one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe…

“If anyone runs into St Mark’s Square shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’, we will take him down,” he continued.

“A year ago I said within four paces, now within three. I will say it in Venetian: ‘Ghe Sparemo’ (We will shoot him).”

They’ve been throwing bodies in those canals for centuries, what’s a few more? I would guess it’s been a few hundred years since it was Muslims, but still.

This guy could be Mitch McConnell for his blatant disregard of his voters

Video has subsequently emerged of the left-wing mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, rushing up to Brugnaro after the speech shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and laughing.

The media called Beppe Grillo a fascist for the sin of being elected and refusing to work with anybody (the opposite of fascism), they called Berlusconi a fascist for the sin of disliking socialism, now they’re looking at real hating, nationalist types but they’ve already turned it up to 11, there’s nowhere to go.

Nobody likes the EU anymore except the oligarchs. The Brits tried voting the get out but that isn’t working very well for them, I figure the rest of Europe will figure out a different way.

 

I saw the hilarity of ESPN pulling a guy from a broadcast because he had some of the same name as Robert E. Lee, but I didn’t see this bit.

No really, Roto-Reuters called him a “doppleganger.” I didn’t think anything could be funnier than ESPN’s reason for firing the poor guy.

I really should remember that now matter how foolish our fine betters can be they can be counted on to build a better fool.

 

The Fruits of Gender Fluidity!

The Boy Scouts are allegedly trying to get girls to sign up with them instead of their female counterpart.

The Girls Scouts of America accused the Boy Scouts of a “covert campaign to recruit girls

You think that’s ridiculous?

Now that’s ridiculous!

I will say that I’m confused, what’s the difference between “queer” and “gay”?

Are you queer if you lisp and flounce?

What’s the difference between “bisexual” and “polyamorous”?

Are you bisexual if you’ll sleep with men or women but polyamorous because you’ll bang any of the made-up genders out there?

I know I shouldn’t try to figure that stuff out, but I get curious.

Wait…is this the same Chuck Adkins?

Posted: August 23, 2017 by aliceaitch in Uncategorized

Attacking Mike Rowe? 

Chuck Adkins the asshat?
