Time for fun..

In keeping with o new policy of retaining sanity and dialing down politics, I am gonna start hanging out over at The Right Hand of Zod.

The into says it best:

..having grown weary of wall-to-wall political blogging as well as the shenanigans perpetrated on the citizenry by asshole Democrats and incompetent, complicit Republicans, I see refuge in another blog.

The purpose of this site will be to document my miscellaneous amateur radio (and related) projects. I also might throw in some commentary on my guns, reloading, and black powder shooting escapades.

I frankly do not care who visits or comments; this is for my enjoyment. If any is of interest to you, feel free to make comments or ask questions.

Otherwise enjoy!

The day has finally arrived!

The day that Albert Einstein feared may have finally arrived.

Having coffee with friends..
..or a day at the beach..
..or having dinner out with your friends..
..or taking in the big game with your friends..
..or out on an intimate date..
..or having a conversation with your best friend..

..or enjoying a day at the museum..
..or driving around with your buds..
..could result in this?

All things considered, this mindless behavior is truly scary. Think about how mnay times you see this going on around you.

More Bill Whittle..

I cannot bring myself to bag on Mitt Romney who I believe is about as honorable a candidate as we could have. However, he lost.

Since the election, I have made the decision (like many, I am sure) to dial out of politics and devote my energies to the survival and prospering of my family. Unless and until a contingent of U. S. citizens (do not want to use the work “political party”) emerges with an inspiring message enunciating the principles of our Constitution, it will continue to be droning, ineffectual blather and cliches.

Mr Whittle emerged on election night with just such a message. His chats on this subject are below -- the first a shorter variant redux of the much longer second talk he did to the Hancock Park Patriots in SoCal. Both are worth pouring a neat dram of whiskey and watching.

Two things in Mr Whittle’s tone and words strike me: (1) his second amendment remarks are eerily reminiscent of those made by Tom Clancy’s President Jack Ryan in Executive Orders and (2) overall, his response to the personal wealth question is refreshingly like Ronald Reagan’s self-assured cockiness.

Unless and until we re-tool to have an inspiring message similar to Mr Whittle’s, we will see a steady parade of entitlement-seeker candidates elected.

If you chafe at the possibility that Mr Whittle's rant may be ineffectual, remember that the Tea Party was essentially by a rant from the trading floor back in February 2009.

Suicide is kind of a drag..

From my old high school buddy, Detective TOm, in Georgia:

Don't find many Heroes like this one!

On January 9th, a group of Pekin, Illinois bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge. So they stopped.

George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper, and says,"What are you doing?" She says, "I'm going to commit suicide."

While he didn't want to appear "sensitive," he didn't want to miss a be-a-legend opportunity either so he asked, "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"

So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that -- and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another one.

After they finished, George gets approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, and says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had Honey! That's a real talent you're wasting Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why are you committing suicide?"

"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl."

It's still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed.

(For Odie..)

What to do while waiting for the revolution..

..pull up a chair, get a libation, and watch this proposal by Bill Whittle:

It is long (over one hour and it rambles a bit and there are some funny embedded commercials) but it is a discussion of a sound idea for getting around government by adhering to all of the laws and without the muss and fuss of a bloody revolution or moving to Idaho and joining one of those survivalist communes.

Oh sure, you can move to Montana, but give this concept some consideration first.




1460 Days Left!

So, if you don't mind, I will be taking a hiatus from this venue and politics in general. I have to preserve, protect, and defend my family and what remnants of this country that will not be eaten away by the 47% of the delusional tit-sucking takers that will burgeon under POTUS RE-ELECT CRAPSACK®.

EXIT QUESTION: Won't it be fun listening to President Shit-for-Brains moan about how -- this term -- he inherited a mess from his predecessor?

Check back here in about 3 years, 11 months, and 29 days.

UPDATE: Shoes beginning to drop, etc. department:
LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

Story also says they will be closing units in California. Thanks, Jerry Brown and the rest of the teeming masses of shit-sucking parasites who want us to carry the burden.

End of the road?

War Planner's Humpbot:


November 6th, 2012..

Many of us have been waiting for this day since November 4th, 2008 and it is finally at hand. No matter the outcome of this day, we are still in this fight to the end. We will soldier on and we will triumph.

But let this day be our Battle of Agincourt, our Crispian’s day.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
Let’s get this done!

Tangential rant..

I posted the verbiage below over at Hot Air in response to a series of comments about poll, etc. It's my memories of 1980.
By the way, I gotta tangential rant on Dark Star's observation.

Raise your hand if you are an old codger like me and remember VOTING in 1980 to flush that drooling goober farmer! The rest of you gather 'round while the ol' War Planner regales you with his rapidly fading memories.

It was back in the Fall of ought-80 that we were saddled with that drooler but there warn't no interwebs or nothing. All we had was the Alphbets and a few polls. That bravo sierra that The Gummed Faerie was proliferating was absolute rubbish -- as was his goddam scatter chart showing reagan up mightily in the polls over Carter.


All we proles knew was (1) we hated Carter and (2) we woulda voted for Beelzebub instead of that road pie. We were all groveling for our Victory Gin and thin stew and chocolate ration and we were at war with Eastaisa (at the time) and them bastages had held our embassy folks for 444 days. WE HAD NO FREAKING IDEA WHO WAS AHEAD OR BEHIND. WE JUST WANTED CARTER GONE!

I stepped into the polling booth at about 1715 PST on that first Tuesday and pulled the chain. I had no freaking idea it was going to be a landslide.


No freaking idea!

When I got home at 1730 PST, my father-in-law told me Carter capitulated! So, this over-the-weekend movement towards Ronald Reagan may have gone on, but it was a well-kept secret from the average Joe like myself.

So, here's what I think: what you're seeing with all of the last-minute polling shenanigans may be partly these idjits trying to preserve their little A-2 bomber-jacket-wearing fruitball POTUS but it's probably partly the sausage being made that you can now see because of the intertoobes or something.

What's that HG commenter say?

Clear ether!

..thanks for listening. We will now resume our regularly scheduled programming.

..just wanted to preserve this. I think Tuesday, our nightmare will come to an end. Hope I am correct.


Idiot wind..

Another sawdust-brained hawtie for The Sack-o-Crap® POTUS.

..rumor has it that Ms Perry is so-o-o-o-o dumb, that they had to put "Backward" on the back of the dress so she'd know how to wear it correctly.

Exit question: what's with the back-up dancers wearing knee pads (see lower left corner of pic above or hunt up the vid on You Tube or something)  -- or is that too impolite to ask?

Two more days until The Big Flush.

November 6th, 2012..


Voter fraud? Nawwwww?

Just sayin'..

..the lady's comments about her mere presence being enough to tone down the Dem strongarm tactics. There's a lesson here, I think.

By the way, Alicia has a lovely smile, don't you think?

You want revenge, Crapsack™?

..I got your revenge right here.

POTUS Sack-o-Shit™ asked his voters to "take revenge" on election day:
During a speech in Springfield, Ohio, Obama talked about the Clinton administration and its economic plan that "asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more." Then he mentioned Mitt Romney, drawing boos from the crowd.

"No, no, no -- don't boo, vote," Obama said. "Vote. Voting is the best revenge."

It was a slight riff on the president's usual interjection when members of the audience start booing.
Romney was quick to pounce on that:

..and followed it up with this:
"I think it's a terrible message to be sending," Romney senior adviser Kevin Madden said. "The contrast could not be more stark. Governor Romney is out campaigning on a positive message of change while the president is talking about revenge."
Of course, one of Obama's minions wee-weed out something about Romney scaring people with his talk of Jeeps being made in China, but the whole conversation sure is indicative of who's winning and who is a nervous little man strutting around the country in his little POTUS USAF A-2 bomber jacket, afraid of losing his precious title and perks.

What a nutless frump!


De plane! De plane!

With any sort of luck, we shall be leaving their Fantasy Island next Tuesday..
