Communism Feminism and the Manosphere

"The feminists/communists are pissed because these naive men were supposed to keep on working to pay the taxes to support their socialist utopia (though I doubt most feminists think that much about budgetary economics and fiscal policy).

Religious types are angry because these men aren't "manning up" and creating more Christians/Muslims/Jews/Etc.

Women are angry because "why can't I find a maaaaaan?"  And "where have all the good men gone!?  Why, I have my triple masters in social work and I'm an independent strong woman!  You know, that's what it is!  Men are sexist pigs who are just intimidated by a strong, independent woman like me!  You probably want one of those hot, long legged, big boobed women!  Well, you know what, you're shallow!  If you don't like me and my muffin top, then you're not good enough for me!"

Halloween Costume

I now have the perfect Halloween Costume.

Depressing news is depressing

so how about some 5.11 Utilikilt and truck problems blogging instead?

Yesterday my 2 youngest daughters went to the regional marching band competition.  I told my daughters I would wear my kilt to the event but they scoffed at the idea.

Haven't they figured out yet a parents job is to embarrass their kids relentlessly?

Me wearing my 5.11 Tactical Utilikilt in black.
This is just before I went over to really embarrass my flautist senior daughter getting her senior band pics.  I had to flash some knee.

Flashing some knee
 You can see in the background my kids band.  They were the only band to march "Military" at the competition.  All the other bands actually pay for a marching program and costumes which can get rather flashy.

My daughter's band on the risers getting their picture taken.
After getting their pics taken the band all loaded up into bus's and head to a local eating establishment to have lunch and play some arcade games.  The lunch and the band's new uniforms were paid for by the Band Booster Club, not the school district, which once again slashed the fine arts budget which includes the band.  But the district paid for the athletics departments new uniforms.  Hmmm which do you think the district supports more?  The athletics teams that always choke at the critical juncture or the fine arts/band program that goes to state competition EVERY year for the last 8 years.

While following the bus's with the kids to the restaurant, one of the bus's pulled off due to a miscommunication, I pulled off as well as they pulled over was a bad place to pull off because off the off ramp.  While sitting there with my hazards on some person in a car driving by decided to throw something out their window.  I now have no back window on my truck.

The now broken back window on my truck

So we ate with the kids.  I used my netbook to watch part of the video that we took of the kids.  And the kids had a good time until it was time to head back.

So my ex-wife and I loaded up in the truck and because of the window being broken we decided to head back home.

That was the plan anyway.

We had just driven on to the harbor bridge when I heard "the sound"  You know the sound you hear right before your tire blows out?  I got into the right hand lane and hit my hazard lights right then the tire blew.  I was already slowing down because I heard the wop wop wop sound, but I was already on the bridge past any on ramp to try to get off and no shoulder.

I was going slow only 10 miles per hour with my hazards on and I was praying. "Please let me get over the bridge safely so I don't tie it up and cause anyone problems.  Several vehicles that were behind me were flashing their lights and honking at me, but I just kept going praying the tire would stay on the rim and not wrap around the axle or tear out the brake lines.  Right then in answer to my prayer a Corpus Christi Police Officer pulled behind me maintaining his distance with his rear flashers going to warn traffic.  and about 20 seconds after that a second officer pulled up behind the first.  By that time I was in the very middle of the bridge and it was all down hill.  I kept praying that the tire would stay on the rim enough to get off the bridge.  The truck  shimmied a bit but I could feel that the tire was still on.  I slowed down to 5 miles per hour and kept on going.  I kept praying as we drove down the other side of the bridge and started looking for a safe place to pull off that wouldn't endanger either myself or anyone else trying to change it and would be well enough off the highway.  At the foot of the bridge there is an exit for the beach and the various restaurants, hotels and the U.S.S. Lexington aircraft carrier.  And there was a shoulder.  A good shoulder about 18 feet wide.  I carefully pulled off onto that should far enough down it so the police officer could pull up behind me without endangering him, as I figured I would be getting a ticket or at least have my information checked out.  I got out of the truck still wearing my kilt, the officer did a double take and asked me if I was ok.  I told him I was.  He then asked if I wanted a wrecker.  I told I didn't think so.  So he and the other officer conferred briefly then asked if I would be ok.   I told them I would be alright and they pulled off back to their jobs.

Then I looked at the tire

The tire that blew
Looking at that tire, I KNOW, that the Lord had a hand in me getting over that bridge.  I KNOW, that the Lord sent those 2 officers to assist me.  I KNOW that the Lord was watching over me.  That tire, the sidewalls are totally separated from the tread.  There is no way I should have been able to get off that bridge without destroying the rim and possibly damaging the truck's brake lines.  The Lord helped me yesterday.

The sidewall and tread are completely separated.
That tread should have wrapped around the axle, damaging the brake lines and binding the wheel, making it so I couldn't drive.  It didn't.  It stayed around the rim, allowing me to get off the bridge, and it didn't even damage the rim.

Many people, mostly those who don't believe in a higher power will say it's just chance that this happened the way it did.  Just coincidence that two police officers were right there to assist me.  Looking at that tire, looking at how the tread and the sidewall are not connected to each other at all, and yet they still stayed together to let me get off the bridge.  I KNOW the Lord stepped in to help me.

There will be many people who will take what I have written about my beliefs and say I'm stupid and that it's just chance that this happened the way it did.  They will poke fun at me and say I'm stupid or nuts for my beliefs.  All I will say is that the Lord only asks that you believe in him.  And if you believe in him he will extend his hand over you.  He doesn't even require you to believe in him to extend his protection to you.  He only asks you to.  And there will be some who say "What about all the people who are killed each day?"  I don't claim to know the Lords mind, and at the same time I am not privy to his plans.

So I ask, don't disparage my beliefs, and I won't disparage yours.

Simple common courtesy.

Do you have it?

Tannerite Exploding targets question

For years now I see everyone doing videos with BIG explosions and lots of booms.  MY question is this.  I don't want big booms, but I do want positive feedback.  The big booms, even though the local sheriff's office is nice and understanding, will get me in trouble with the neighbors. 

So my question is this.

What is the smallest amount of tannerite/exploding target powder/binary explosives that will properly detonate from being hit by a high velocity .22 LR?

Small pill bottle size?  Medium pill bottle size?  How many ounces are necessary to be reliably detonated by a .22?

I have dozens of empty pill bottles and they make very challenging targets that my kids love to shoot at.  I would like to increase our distance but make it enjoyable for the kids.  If they get a bang they know they hit the target.  And since they want the bang they will pay more attention to their fundamentals to get on target.

Any answers?  Suggestions?

Interestinger and curiouer - UPDATED

The General in charge of AFRICOM read the same e-mail messages requesting assistance in Benghazi.  He orders the response team to get going.  He is immediately ordered to stand down.  He says screw that and lets order stand.  He is then relieved of his command by his second.

"General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command."

If this IS true someone needs their scalp collected.

The Administration is LYING to us about Benghazi

Voting Yesterday

Fake hate crime in Louisiana is fake it's

a hate crime against whites.  And the perpetrator will never be charged for it.

"As the story festered, hundreds of blacks took to social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter and added completely unsupported rumors that Moffitt was wearing an Obama tee shirt, asserting that the attack was not just racial, but political in nature. Others went even further, claiming that Moffitt was even raped as a result of wearing an Obama tee shirt before she was set on fire.

But it wasn’t true.

Sharmeka Moffitt was not raped.

Sharmeka Moffitt was not wearing an Obama tee shirt.

Sharmeka Moffitt was not approached by anyone, her car was not vandalized by anyone else.

Sharmeka Moffitt wrote the slurs on her car in toothpaste, then she set herself on fire:"

Benghazi another Iran-Contra?

Emergency Preparations over at Peter's - Prepping on a Budget

"I've had a few inquiries from readers of earlier articles in this series, commenting that they're on a very limited budget indeed (some have lost their jobs), and don't have spare disposable income to begin building up their emergency supplies.  They ask what can be done by people in their situation.

In this article, I'm going to address a 'bare-bones' approach to putting together your emergency stash.  It won't involve very tasty or varied foods, or high-quality items, because such things are likely to be too expensive on a very limited budget.  Nevertheless, if you can't spend more than an absolute minimum, these suggestions will equip you to survive at a very basic level for a few weeks."

For low cost preps, you need to read Peter's post first.  I can and will expand on his post.


Peter covers it pretty well, however on the Multi-vitamins condiments and can openers.

Buy the largest bottle of multi vitamins as you can, buy several.  In a emergency situation of only a few days to a week if you have a modest pantry they won't really be used, but in a situation such as Katrina or Rita where you have lost most of your pantry, eating just what canned goods you have left, you need supplements

Condiments, many condiments require refrigeration after opening.  In an emergency situation of a day or 2 that's not really a problem.  Longer term situations it does become a problem.  Lack of refrigeration leads to nasties growing in your condiments.  If you have a Sam's Club or Costco Card, buy a box of food service condiments for the condiments you prefer.  Catsup/ketchup packets, mustard packets, the whole gamut.  I even have peanut butter and jam/jelly packets.  As long as they are stored in a cool dry place they will last several months.  In fact at my house we rotate them, buying new as we use the older stuff.  VERY IMPORTANT!  Taco Bell Hot Sauce packets will be worth their weight in PLATINUM in an emergency situation.  trust me.  I have hundreds of packets of them.  Sinuses backed up?  Eat a packet or two of Taco Bell Hot Sauce.  Eating plain dull white rice add a packet of TB Hot Sauce to spice it up if i don't have any packets of sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce.  The advantage of condiments are two-fold first they do improve the taste of food so you are more willing to actually consume the necessary calories to keep your body healthy and second they offer psychological support.  If you have nothing to eat but bland dull food how much enthusiasm would you have for even taking basic steps to ensure yourself and your family even eat or maintain hygiene?

Can openers, buy several manual can openers not the El-Cheapo one from the dollar store that might partway open 1 can before the teeth are too worn to work ever again.  Buy the good ones, they run from $4.99 to over $12.00, but they are built out of heavier/thicker metal, the gears are wider, the cutting wheel is thicker, and they work much better.  Also go to the military surplus store or mail order place and buy a dozen or so p-38 or p51 can openers.  If you have arthritis they are a bear to use but in the absence of anything better they will get the job done.


Peter writes about using 2 liter soda bottles and they will and do work, they are a bit flimsy.  3 liter soda bottles have a thicker side wall and base making them more resistant to damage, plus they hold an extra liter of water.

Make sure you fully rinse them out, we use diet soda 3 liter bottles as the sugar in regular soda can leave residue which is hard to remove and can feed algae and microbe growth in your water.  After they are rinsed out put a pinch of baking soda in the bottle and 1 cup of HOT water, and cap it.  Shake the bottle thoroughly for a minute or so, then loosen the cap and flip it over allow the water baking soda mix to drain through the loosened cap.  This neutralizes any remaining acids from the soda.  Allow bottle to fully dry before filling.

Treat any water you do store with unscented bleach.  I over bleach my stored water, 1cc of bleach per 3 liter.  Now normally this would be major overkill but it sets up a precedent in my head so if there is an emergency situation I will make sure I treat any water properly.

Filling those bottles.  If you don't have a water filter on your faucet, use a funnel and a disposable coffee filter to fill your bottles.  Add the bleach to the bottle before filling so it mixes properly as the bottle is filled.  Even with tap water there are some small solids in the water so filter it and treat it.  Fill the water up as much full as you can, leave as little air in the bottle as possible.  The presence of air allows for the breakdown of nasties that did survive the filtration and bleaching.  As they breakdown they have byproducts which can make people sick. So try to eliminate as much air in the bottles as possible.


As Peter wrote, in an emergency situation you probably won't have electric or gas to cook with so you need another way to do so.  Peter mentions cooking with wood and while it can be done it also presents a hazard.  Plus if you are in a major flooding situation as New Orleans experienced I doubt you would find much wood which you could safely burn for cooking.  Start hitting garage sales and thrift stores for camping supplies.  I have an old Coleman white gas camp stove I got at a thrift store for $5.00  It was missing it's fuel tank with it attached gas generator.  A quick trip to the sporting goods store and I purchased as propane converter for $14.99 which allows for the use of disposable 1 lb propane tanks, or with another purchase from the sporting goods store of a bulk hose for a Little Buddy Heater I can use any 20lb or larger propane tank to feed it.  And at a garage sale I picked up another Coleman camp stove that uses white gas/coleman fuel or ordinary gasoline for $20.00.  The propane adapter works with it also so I can use it with either stove.  You can also purchase propane only single or dual burner stoves for less than $25.00 and you can refill the smaller tanks from a larger 20lb tanks with an adapter.

I also make, as a hobby of mine, Alcohol stoves, that I can use 91% rubbing alcohol, denatured alcohol, Gas line dryer additive and a few others as fuel. To make these small stoves all you need is a couple of aluminum soda or beer cans, a nail and my pocket knife.  Search out Zen Stoves on google and you can find out how to make them yourself.  A small alcohol stove will run for 20 minutes or so with 91% rubbing alcohol and boil a quart of water in about 4 minutes.  The rubbing alcohol is rather sooty so your pot will be dirty but you can cook.  The other alcohols burn much cleaner and hotter lasting a bit longer per fill and boiling water much quicker.


Peter stresses it and so will I.  DO NOT LIGHT ANY TYPE OF FIRE WITHOUT ADEQUATE VENTILATION!  YOU CAN DIE, YOU CAN KILL YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY!!!  DO NOT DO IT!!!  Even a Catalytic heater can kill you.  It burns fuel and requires oxygen to work, so do you.  So make sure you have a way to get enough air.

There are many different ways of heating.  Once again hit garage sales, I picked up 2 old Coleman catalytic heaters for $5.00 each.  The require white gas only as fuel which can be expensive but they will heat a 12X12 room if you are careful about maintaining proper ventilation and watch the drafts.  It does have to be lit outside as it gives off about a 3 foot flame when first lit and it is difficult to put out without the snuffer which one of mine didn't have.

Propane heaters, there are several propane heater on the market from Coleman, LittleBuddy and other but they require propane.

I will also tell you to search for the Cooking oil heater, it uses large ceramic flower pots as heat sinks and cooking oil to provide hours of heat.  However it too need to be adequately ventilated and it will only heat a room about 8X10 as it is a radiant heat.


Once again hit garage sales and thrift stores.  You can get oil lanterns, coleman lanterns running either white gas or propane, LED lights and in extreme need candles.  I really don't recommend candles as they have a rather low light output and are a very high fire danger.if you do use them please use votive candles in a glass holder or mason jar and do everything you can to ensure the aren't knocked over.  Even Tea candles can start a fire so be careful.

Other stuff:

Pots and pans to cook with, utensils to eat and cook with.  Sleeping bags and blankets.  All of these things can be purchased at garage sales and thrift stores and stored for an emergency situation.  One thing though I will cover in a separate post.  Sanitation.

Connecting the dots?

When you look at everything it does seem as if something is a little hinky with the situation.

"The General Officer who as a Two Star in charge of Alaska forbade troops from carrying firearms in USARAK, the same GO who in charge of I Corps and Joint Base Lewis McChord wrote a policy letter requiring all personnel assigned to JBLM with weapons stored within 100 miles of JBLM to register those weapons on post. be put in charge of NORTHCOM? I don't know about very many GOs in the Army, but the current NORTHCOM commander is no friend to gun owners. 

I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, but all these data points are making me feel...itchy and uncomfortable."

The College professor can't even do middle school math

and yet he expects us to let him run our country's economic engine for another four years?

"On helping kids with homework and whether he struggles with any subjects, Obama says "the math stuff I was fine with, up until 7th grade."

This explains a lot.  Is he even capable of balancing his own checkbook and reconciling his statement?

Eldest sprog and I voted today

It was her first time to vote in a real not school election.  I picked her up from work as her van is in the shop and together we went and and went to the voting station to cast our ballots.

While waiting our turn to get access to either the voting machine or a cubby with a paper ballot an older gentleman cut it front of me and demanded the attention of one of the poll workers.  I stepped back and let the lady speak to the gentleman first.  From the look she gave him for his rudeness, if he was one of her children he would have gotten a thimble to the crown of the head.  Anywayz (Yes I know it's spelled with an "s"), the gentleman demanded that he be allowed to accompany his wife, who had NEVER EVER voted before to "Help" her cast her ballot.

The lady/poll worker gave him the imperious grandmother look, you know where your grandma would tip her head back and look down her nose at you before pronouncing sentence on you for all of your sins, and informed him that under "Federal Law" that is NOT allowed.  If she needs assistance a Poll Worker would be happy to assist her cast her ballot.  However since "He" is not a sworn Poll Worker he cannot "Assist" her to cast her ballot.

The gentleman was somewhat huffy, but he harrumphed and walked back outside.  Then my daughter and I were allowed to go in and place out ballots. I reminded my daughter again to verify all of her votes before pressing the cast ballot button.  The Poll worker lady just smiled at me and gave me a little nod as my daughter told her this was her first real election to vote in.

I sat down at the machine, carefully read the instruction, they haven't changed since the last election, and proceeded to enter my choices.  After I entered my choices, like I had told my daughter I verified that all of my choices were the ones I had marked, then I hit the "Cast Ballot" button.  It took about 4 seconds, then the screen changed to the note that my ballot had been recorded.

I got up and and informed the Poll Worker I was done and she directed me out of the room.  As I walked out, I heard the gentleman who had interrupted earlier speaking to a woman, telling her that she had BETTER vote for Obama.  I glanced back before I walked out and this gentleman's "wife" was a hispanic woman, maybe about 42 to 45 years old.  The gentleman was easily pushing 60.

You tell me what was going on.

But as I was walking out I did see 3 of the lady poll workers exchanging what looked like to me a "meaningful" look.

So I wonder if the lady actually followed his instructions or even if she was allowed to vote.  I did see a stack of Provisional Ballots on the table next to the standard ballots.  So I'll never know.

But I did vote today.

If you are registered to vote, GO AND VOTE!  It is your civic duty as part of the Representative Democracy and Republic we call the United States of America.  Go out and VOTE!

I wonder who in Seattle doesn't want Republicans in Florida voting?

"Local 6 first reported the bogus letter scam on Monday, which claim to be from county supervisors of elections but are postmarked from Seattle. They raise questions about the voter's citizenship and appear intended to intimidate people."

I mean just who wouldn't want Republican voters to vote in Florida?

Obama Administration knew Benghazi was terrorist attack 2 HOURS after it started.

Three E-mails, which were obtained by Fox News, show that the Obama Administration knew 2 hours after the attack on the Benghazi Consulate was being claimed by an Al Qaeda sub group.

"The third email came at 6:07 pm and was sent to a different email list, but still includes the White House Situation room address.

This email contains the key subject line that reads “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU).”

So just when is the Obama Administration going to admit that they LIED to the American public?

The page now comes up as 404.  I was reading the comments when the page reloaded and went to 404 File Not Found.  Hmmmm what is going on?

Computer Maintenance and Security and YOU

About once a month my Ex-wife asks me to "Fix" her computer, at the same time my mother asks me to "Fix" her computer about 3 sometimes 4 times a year.  They are always concerned because their computers have gotten slower and are acting weird.

On my Ex-wife's computer, it is usually a combination of factors almost always related to the fact she lets our kids use her computer whenever they want and we have 4 boys who LOOOOOOOOOOVE  computer games.  And downloading patches and cracks.  Yes, most of the time her computer is Virused up with so many Virii I just pull her hard drive out of her computer and hook it up to one of my external drive enclosures and start letting my various A/V, Anti-Malware and drive maintenance programs go to work on it.  The full scans usually take 2 days.  Seriously, for a 320GB hard drive it takes 2 days to run all the scans I do on it.  The last time I pulled full maintenance on my computer I was on the laptop for a full week, 3.4 TB spread out over 5 drives takes a long time to scan fully.

My mothers computer isn't usually as bad but some of the Virii and other Malware she has gotten have been rather bad.  I actually had to do a wipe and full re-install once on her laptop it was so bad.

Both my Ex and my mom try to keep up with their computer maintenance, but with me just a phone call away they don't really stay up on it like they should.

However it does get old after the 7th or 8th time.

This isn't directed at my mother or my Ex, but to everyone in general.

The following are the list of programs I use.  And the schedule I follow for my personal computer systems.

CCleaner  I run this program every time I close my browser

Registry Mechanic  This is run once a day, I have a subscription that covers my two desktops and my netbook, which all run different versions of Windows, Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit, and Windows 7 Business.

Malwarebytes Which is run every Saturday after being updated, and run in Chameleon Mode once a month.

Spybot Search and Destroy  Is also run every Saturday after updating and run in detail full scan mode once a month as well.  Be sure to re-immunize your system after every update.

Advanced System Care  This is run once a week after update, usually Sunday morning.

 AVG Anti Virus This is my main AntiVirii Program  They also have a Free version for home/Student use at  This is also a decent program.

There are other Free and low cost Anti Virus Programs but I don't use them as I have had problems with them in the past, usually related to browser setting they didn't like and kept trying to change and I didn't want them changed.  So the programs got changed.

Also, I reboot my computers once a day, normally after it finishes it's daily virus scan.

File Back up - I use the built in Windows Back for my Vista desktop and the Win7 Netbook, for the Win XP Pro I use Filefort File back u.  And all of my computers are backed up twice a week, on Tuesday and Saturday.

Defrag I use the built in Defrag program for the XP and Vista systems once a month.  Still haven't found a Defrag I like for the Win7 yet.

Now those are just the scans I do offline to protect my system.  Lets get into what add on I use to protect myself when I am on line.

First my browser.

Firefox  is the browser I use  and I use several add-ons/plugins to protect my system.

Adblock Plus to block ads

Adblock Plus Pop up Addon to help adblock block pop ups

Better Privacy which removes pesky Flash Cookies that track your browsing

Do Not Track Plus which blocks even more tracking cookies and such

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus hides pesky page elements I don't want to see and can load malicious code on your computer through Javascript.

Ghostery add on blocks even more cookies and trackers.

No-Script Blocks scripts from running until you authorize them.

install and configure those addons to make it a LOT harder for malicious and rogue code to get loaded on your computer.  Of course they can all be undone by clicking on the wrong thing.  But I can't sit over your shoulder to tell you what to not click on.

With a little effort and some commonsense you can protect your computer from virii and other assorted nasties, however the best program or add on in the world won't protect you from your own stupidity.

So be sure what you click on, and remember.

If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

or TANSTAAFL  There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

Politics - Chicago Style... In Florida?

"ORLANDO, Fla. - Officials in Florida have issued a warning about a new trick trying to prevent voters from going to the polls.

Voters are getting letters that look like they are from local elections offices, questioning their citizenship. But Local 6 has learned the letters are fake, and they are going out across Central Florida and other parts of the state.

Officials said the voters who have received the letters thus far are white, registered Republicans who consistently vote in elections."

I wonder just what other scams the DNC and Obama are going to do in an attempt to get Obama the Dhimmi another term.

Things our Military does you don't know

"One Mig was VERY aggressive in his 'push', so we decided to fix his butt...We were at the Southern end of our track and getting close to our offsta time, so we called the F-4 (who conveniently was off the oppositewing) and told him we were going to slow down.  We dropped to 180 kts, the F-4 dropped flaps, leading edge, etc. and was basically hanging on the engines, and we noted the Mig was starting to wallow a bit. We kept coming back on the power, down to 160, then 150, then 140.  All the while we were gradually descending from 5000 to 3000 feet.  Finally at about 140 kts, the Mig departed and stalled/pitched over..."

Cuban Missile Crisis- War Avoided - Backstory

From Old NFO we find about a US Air Force B-52 Crew doing their job.

"On that breezy, sunny October  day, I was one of the pilots in the lead B-52 of the two aircraft formation which had received the command message while on alert to launch our aircraft, proceed to our airborne orbit points off the boundary of the Soviet Union, and wait for the execution message to strike the heartland of Russia.  We were not the only strike aircraft launching.  Alert aircraft in pairs from almost every SAC combat base in the United States were scrambling to get airborne and to precede to their strike orbit points.  Our mission was somewhat different because our course would take us in the vicinity of Cuba.  We were directed to vector our course so as to fly over the Russian ships off the coast of Cuba and to report our sightings to SAC headquarters."


"A California businessman chartered a fishing boat in July, loaded it with 100 tons of iron dust and cruised through Pacific waters off western Canada, spewing his cargo into the sea in an ecological experiment that has outraged scientists and government officials. 

 The entrepreneur, whose foray came to light only this week, even duped the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the United States into lending him ocean-monitoring buoys for the project." 

Many scientists are angered over this experiment and are raising the hue and cry,  

"Marine scientists and other experts have assailed the experiment as unscientific, irresponsible and probably in violation of those agreements, which are intended to prevent tampering with ocean ecosystems under the guise of trying to fight the effects of climate change."

As Glenn Reynold aka Insty says:

"I’m inclined to agree, but I’d be more inclined if climate scientists had demonstrated more professional responsiblity themselves.

Meanwhile, we’ve learned at least that iron fertilization does in fact stimulate plankton growth on a large scale, haven’t we?"

Richard Pryor's take the first black President of the United States

A German's View on Islam sent to me from a Kiwi friend (some folks are awake) - from the inbox

A German's View on Islam - worth reading. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist? A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians, most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda , which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on!
Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on before it's too late.

Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario , and yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in. And we are silent...

Pre-emptive Lawfare

Insty has a good idea here for the Romney Ryan campaign.

"They’re desperate, so they’ll try anything. And — as with the bogus McCain-affair story from the New York Times, the press will do its best to hype anything, however weak. If I were Romney, I’d have lawyers quietly informing outlets that false stories before the election will be met with libel suits — and expensive, embarrassing discovery — after the election. Whether I win or lose, guys, you’ll have my lawyers trolling through your emails for years. And we both know there’s a lot of stuff there you don’t want anyone to see."

11th hour voting

While reading a comment to a post about moonbats acting moonbattish when Obummer loses the election, I remembered something.  The comment particularly mentioned the idea of democrats stealing elections.  And it reminded me of actually seeing that when I lived in Missouri. Jim over at Gateway Pundit can probably back me up on this, but on every election of a hotly contested statewide or federal issue, St. Louis City and Kansas City were ALWAYS the last to tun in their vote totals.  It seemed like they had to wait to find out the way the rest of the state had voted before they turned in their totals for some reason.  And I noticed the same thing about Cook County :ie Chicago, in Illinois always being the last to report it's totals as well.  In particularly I remember during the first vote for Concealed Carry in Missouri, St. Louis City and Kansas City didn't even START to report their totals until several hours after the polls had closed.  Whereas St. Louis County with a larger population of registered voters posted it's totals in time for the 10:00 O'clock news.  And both St. Louis City and Kansas City always had almost 100% voter turn out, every time., but they wouldn't report vote totals until after midnight. 

So watch out for these same shenanigans in your neck of the woods.  If a particular area is always late turning in their totals on election night, the fix might be in.

The Code of the American Cowboy

The Code of the American Cowboy
Wayne's westerns were full of action but usually not excessively violent. "Fights with too much violence are dull," claimed Wayne, insisting that the straight-shooting, two-fisted violence in his movies have been "sort of tongue-in-cheek." He described the violence in his films as "lusty and a little humorous," based on his belief that "humor nullifies violence." His conservative taste deplored the increasing latitude given to violence and sex in Hollywood. In the 1960s he launched a campaign against what he termed "Hollywood's bloodstream polluted with perversion and immoral and amoral nuances." Most of his westerns steered clear of graphic violence.
  1. A cowboy does not judge color of skin, but by character within.
  2. A cowboy always respects a lady and tips his hat to all that pass him by.
  3. A cowboy stands strong for what the American frontier is all about: Freedom, Truth, Justice and the American way.
  4. A cowboy will not be wronged, nor wrongs another. The justice he deems out depends on that.
  5. A cowboy is loyal, and hard working and maintains a high ethic.
  6. A cowboy loves his country, and will fight for it's principles and sovereignty.
  7. A cowboy respects his animals and the earth they roam upon.
  8. A cowboy is faithful to what is entrusted to him.
  9. A cowboy is bound by duty, honor, and gratitude for what God has given him, which includes his friends and family.
  10. A cowboy maintains a hidden code in his heart, for all to see.

I think that says it all

Obama Administration fails to report Stimulus

information it is REQUIRED to report for almost the entire year.

BZ has the story.

"This is purposeful. This is an abrogation. But for close to the fiftieth time in the history of my blog, I write: this information is intentionally not covered by the DEM/MSM.

And, again, were this a Republican administration, this story would have covered for the next month, daily and nightly, plastered on front pages nationally, with the concomitant political shrieks for pogroms and criminal investigations."

Failed "Green" energy companies that Obama gave $$ to

We had a song back in Boot Camp

A Brain Drizzle of mine tell me what you think...

I have an idea for a poll of likely voters with almost immediate feedback.  Not something that will take days or weeks to get results from.

Take a bunch of poker chips,

Red=Republican Party

Blue=Democrat Party

Yellow=Libertarian Party (No it is not a slam it is the color used to represent Libertarians on polling data that I could access)

Green=Green Party


White/Red=Independent leaning Republican

White/Blue=Independent leaning Democrat

White/Yellow=Independent leaning Libertarian

White/Green=Independent leaning Green

Have an enclosed voting booth with 5 labled ballot boxes:

Box#1 Romney/Ryan

Box#2 Obama/Biden

Box#3 Johnson/Gray

Box#4 Stein/Honkala

Box#5 Other

Ask the person being polled if they voted in the last election, if they reply in the affirmative ask them if they plan to vote in the current election.  If they reply in the affirmative ask them to choose the chip which best reflects thier political belief.

After they choose the chip direct them to the booth to place their vote in the appropriate ballot box.

I would like to get at least 100 people to take part, the ideal would be around 250.

But each person would take the colored chip which identifies their political beliefs closest and vote for the candidates they believe is best.

One chip one vote, since no one but them knows who they are voting for they should be able to vote their conscious, instead of a political party line.

If I can get it together, I would actually like to try to do this next week in downtown Corpus Christi and video the whole thing from start to finish including the tallying of the "votes" and post it to You tube and embed it here.

I think this might be an interesting "Poll" if you will.

"In medicine there is a need to manage your resources, time, material, even who responds because your ability to respond and treat are finite. An ER in even a metropolitan area can get overwhelmed with 5 critical casualties. Imagine if a bus were to crash and 30-35 critical casualties were reported. That can stress a whole COUNTY. Every doctor that works in an ER must be a master of multitasking, and must be a leader of first order. When someone comes in that can quite frankly wait, they can and do because your job is not to do the best for a few patients, but to do the most good for the most number of people."

Terrorists have container capable of hiding Enriched Uranium

from detectors.  Now I have said in the past, the terrorists don't need to build an atomic bomb, all they need to do is to build several "Dirty" bombs.  And depending on the top of material they use, they don't really need that much of it to affect large cities.  A few hundred pounds of material sitting on top of an ANFO device in a truck delivered bomb as was used in the first World Trade Center Bombing, or the Murrah Building Bombing in Oklahoma City, if placed properly, could irradiate dozens of square miles of a city and cause hundreds if not thousands of deaths.  Not immediate deaths, but prolonged painful deaths from radiation poisoning.  Of men, women and children.

And now the terrorists have the specialized containers which block the emissions from radioactive materials.  Which means the detectors that the DHS have installed all over the US are now useless to detect this terrorist weapon.

"Terrorist groups have acquired a "container" to smuggle uranium undetected past the global network of sensors to prevent a dirty bomb, the head of the UN's nuclear watchdog has warned.

 Speaking in London, Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said groups' efforts to build a dirty bomb were becoming "more professional". 

Does anyone else think Obama is a petulant child?

After reading how he will Veto a bill which will block Taxmageddon and the Fiscal Cliff his policies have brought us to, I now believe that I have him all wrong.  He isn't some socialistic mastermind.  He is just a petulant child who is threatening to hold his breath until he gets what he wants.

"President Obama is prepared to veto legislation to block year-end tax hikes and spending cuts, collectively known as the “fiscal cliff,” unless Republicans bow to his demand to raise tax rates for the wealthy, administration officials said.

 Freed from the political and economic constraints that have tied his hands in the past, Obama is ready to play hardball with Republicans, who have so far successfully resisted a deal to tame the debt that includes higher taxes, Obama’s allies say."

The republicans in the house have voted for responsible budgets, Harry Reid refuses to allow them to come to a vote.  Instead he calls the House "Obstructionist".  Just who is obstructing what?

And President Obama?  He is over in the corner not even engaged as the leader of his own party.  He is letting his pawns do what they want to the detriment of the country.  Where is his leadership?  Where is his authority?

All I see and hear him doing is bleating and threatening veto's if he doesn't get his way.

Kinf of like his comment almost four years ago, "I won"

Well I'm sorry President Obama, just because you "Won" doesn't mean you can't actually DO your job.

Needs to be posted

As far as I am concerned Government should have no business in marriage.  NONE.  As far as I'm concerned people marry themselves in front of their own Deity or they don't.  The Government has no say in it one way or the other.

So I come in for an Oil Change every 3 months?

Researchers have found that a transfusion of "Younger" blood helps older individuals with cognitive functions and help regrow neural connections.  In mice....

"Changes in the composition of our blood as we age may cause the deterioration of memory and other brain functions by damaging connections in the brain. 

Filtering younger blood into an older body could combat the problem by rejuvenating old tissue and keeping nerve cells in good working order, according to a new study." 

So if an old fart like me or Peter goes in for a transfusion a few times a year, our brains could heal themselves and help with disorders of the brain.  Aiding our memory functions and improving our quality of life.

Is that what you get from the article?

And WHERE is the Secret Service?

Virulent Obama supporters threaten to assassinate Mitt Romney if he wins the election.

"BHO’s free candy brigade is calling for Mitt’s murder if Obama gets tossed from the Oval Office come November.  Yep, they fear their food stamp days are done under Romney.  Therefore, the death Romney is their only recourse."

And why are we not hearing about people being arrested and charged for these threats? Isn't that what the Secret Service is there for?  To investigate any threats against the President and Presidential candidates?  And yet I see nothing on the news about people being brought in and interrogated for making threats.

And we pay them for what exactly?

Bush's Fault... 

Small Ball Campaigning

explained by Bob Owens.

"Small ball is a strategy used by baseball managers in an attempt to generate offense when they don’t have any heavy hitters in their lineup (notice how the analogy is coming together nicely already). Instead of relying on players that can knock the ball out of the park and hoping to generate a lot of runs, small ball managers encourage players to get on base by any means necessary, including taking a walk, a balk, or getting hit by a pitch. Once the team gets a player on based, they advance him any way they can, including hit-and-run, bunting, or stealing. The objective is to methodically move men around the bases, hope that over the course of a game, you can get one or two of them home. It will never produce a lot of runs, but it can generate enough if the other team can’t put runs on the board."

Ten Important Things You Might Have Missed in the Second Presidential Debate

ETA There is one particular comment that bears thinking on.

A description of 0bama - From the inbox

Dr. Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of Reagan's strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union with the star wars race and expose their inner weakness. For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was extremely interesting and well structured and informative. He consults(ed) with several mega corporations on global trends and the future, etc. He is in semi-retirement now. He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything. He is also a somewhat well-known mountain climber and adventurer.
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

His candidacy is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

THE COW AND THE ICE CREAM - From the inbox

A repeat but worth re-reading…

THE COW AND THE ICE CREAM ONE OF THE BEST THEORIES OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION  -- From a teacher in the Nashville area -- "We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had waswhile teaching 3rd grade.  The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.  We got many nominations and from those,Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot. The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia's mother. The day arrived when they were to make their speeches. Jamie went first. He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place.He ended by promising to do his very best. Everyone applauded and he sat down. Now is was Olivia's turn to speak. Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down. The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream." She surely would say more. She did not have to. A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word.  Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it...She didn't know. The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream... Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide. Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream. The other 48.6% percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."  Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone that they have not first taken away from someone else. Did you vote for the ice cream?  THAT, MY FRIEND, IS HOW OBAMA GOT ELECTED,  BY THOSE WHO WANT EVERYTHING FOR FREE!For a man who didn't give a damn about who paid for it.CLASS DISMISSED...
