IMPEACH OBAMA, YOU SPINELESS BASTARDS!!!

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

When the Attorney General, a person appointed to that position by Barack Obama himself, holds a private meeting with the husband of Hillary Clinton, and Obama does NOTHING, the obvious corruption of our Presidency is too much to bear.

Hillary Clinton is under FBI investigation for using a private email server to send and receive Classified, Secret documents that directly affect our national security, and it is the Attorney General who decides whether or not to prosecute people who violate Federal laws. The fact that the FBI has yet to say whether she has violated laws or not, after all this time, speaks very poorly of the FBI, but the fact that the Attorney General herself is having secret discussions with Bill Clinton is absolutely beyond the pale. At the very least she must recuse herself and appoint a Special Prosecutor to deal with any recommendation from the FBI to prosecute Hillary Clinton, and she’s refused to do this. Therefor, President Obama MUST fire her and appoint a new Attorney General. Yet he’s said and done nothing.

This is Dereliction of Duty, grounds for impeachment. This isn’t the first time he’s been guilty of this, but this is far and away the most blatant, and if our Congress does not move to impeach over this incredibly obscene disregard for law, not one of them deserves to be re-elected.

THE PLAN?

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Nazi is an abbreviation in German for Nationalsozialist, which means National Socialist in English. The National Socialist Party.

Breitbart News reports that “Bernie Sanders supporters have spent months publicly planning events with the expressed purpose of clashing with law enforcement and staging a violent disruption at the Democratic National Convention and more than 1,500 people have accepted invitations to the “9.9 million person march” to “occupy the convention, it would mean a shutdown of the city for 2 days and the most massive protest since the revolutionary war.” with the result that the DNC is going to set up a perimeter “no-climb” wall around the facility. This, of course, is getting some hoots of derision considering the Democrats opposition to Trumps wall.

The real issue here is that Sanders does have millions of young people rallied behind him, they’re violent, they’re getting steadily more violent, they plan on actually attacking the Democratic Convention in far greater numbers than they’ve attacked Trump rallies, and Sanders is a Socialist. A Socialist who can get these people to engage in civil disorder on a large scale just as another National Socialist did back in the 1930′s.

So is that The Plan? That it’s Sanders supporters who will give Obama the excuse to declare Martial Law? Sanders gave Hillary an easy ride to the nomination, he never really attacked her for her criminal behavior as he could have, and should have if he were really serious about wanting to be President. Now that there’s no chance of him being nominated he still won’t drop out, instead he’s fomenting more anger, rage, hostility and trouble for not just Trump and the Republicans but for his own party as well.

This is exactly what Hitler did.

ANN COULTER MAY BE RIGHT

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

Ann Coulter has surmised, using a genuinely brilliant path of logic and assumption, that Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrat nominee for President after all, and neither will that Communist Bernie Sanders. She posits that Joe Biden will end up as the Dem. nominee.

Well, all very interesting as a theory, but not very likely, right? Maybe not right. It’s become very apparent that Bill O’Reilly on Fox News only says what he’s told to say by Rupert Murdoch, and tonight he’s saying that Hillary’s in a lot of trouble over her private email server mess, and may be indicted for her violations of Federal laws. Exactly as Ann Coulter was saying.

It’s dawning on the Democrats that Donald Trump is going to win the coming election, as Hillary’s popularity continues to decline along with her perceived trustworthiness, and they’re looking for someone else who stands a chance of beating Trump. A lot of Democrats are going over to Donald Trump because they dislike Hillary so much, and Trump’s following in his own party is huge.

Right now there’s several documentaries gaining popularity and viewers regarding the Clinton family and their connections to a great deal of suspicious and illegal actions, while Bill Clinton is being exposed as a rapist and very possibly a pedophile because of his close association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his many trips on Epstein’s private jet. The jet was dubbed the “Lolita Express” because Epstein always had it loaded up with underage girls who were there for sex. Epstein, a billionaire, is currently in prison for having sex with a minor and child pornography. Bill Clinton’s been accused by various women of raping them, and he’s a known sex hound.

The ugliness that has overtaken the Presidency of our nation is mind-boggling. Look at the creature we have as President now, a man of dubious national origin, a homosexual with a transsexual man for a “wife”, a person who’s doing his damndest to force us to teach our children to think that gender is “fluid”. He’s insane, the people he’s surrounded himself with are insane, and many of our elected representatives are also.

It’s a mess, and no less of one than the rest of the world is in. Every nation on Earth is in trouble and unrest is everywhere. Stay tuned.

HAPPINESS IS A WARM ROCK

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Today is one of those suckola days when the sky is dark and grey and a wet drizzle defies the dry air, breaking through in bits and pieces, just enough to keep me reminded that it may actually rain and I’d better not stay out too long in it.

I’m a lapidarist, among other traits one can either admire, detest or find totally boring, depending on how inquiring your mind is, from my perspective anyway, and I have a large (relatively speaking compared to someone with a few shiny river rocks) assemblage of agates and jaspers and other types from all over the world.

Among this lot is a box full of nephrite jade that I collected over the years while living on the California coast. Particular to the area I collected in, in the Big Sur range, is a form of jade known as botryoidal, which means “grape-like clusters”. In the Sur we call it Bubble Jade, and I have perhaps 125 or so nice small pieces of it that I mined many years ago. Bubble jade is used as jewelry. It’s very rare, and very attractive.

Then there’s the Shell Mound Rock.

The natives, the Indians, would heat jade rocks to cook their food and keep them warm at night. They’d put the rocks in their campfire and get them really hot, then put them in a leather bag with their food, and the hot rocks would boil or cook as needed. The thing about most rocks is that if you put them in fires they’ll explode from the moisture inside them turning to steam. Jade has no water in it and is incredibly fracture resistant. A hot jade rock wrapped up and in the bed would give off heat for many hours.

These Indians had trash heaps, called middens, where they’d throw stuff they didn’t want, and with them it was the shells of shellfish. There was this very large midden, and as I walked past it one morning I saw a gleam of green in the white of the decomposing calcium shells, reached in and pulled out my largest chunk of jade yet, about 9 inches across and 3 inches thick. Some Indian had hidden it there before following the season North or South with their tribe. They were hunter-gatherers, and this one obviously never lived to return to it. It was probably in there for centuries before I found it, but for one aboriginal man or woman, this was a valued bedwarmer for a long time. Happiness was a warm rock.

FUCK THE JAPS

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

“At a news conference during which he was harshly lectured by the prime minister of Japan, President Barack Obama extended his “sincerest condolences and deepest regrets” for what he termed a “tragedy” in Okinawa, with a former U.S. Marine suspected in the killing of a young Japanese woman.”

The Marine is Kenneth Shinzato, so he’s obviously a Japanese-American. The Japs do have a low crime rate, ours is about 4 times as high. That doesn’t excuse the Jap Prime Minister from giving our President a bunch of crap over the actions of some Marine. The Jap PM went on to claim that this killing was the only thing they discussed, which is a lie, they talked about a wide variety of issues.

The Japs are pissed off too that when Obama visits their memorial of our nuking them, that Obama won’t apologize for our dropping the bombs on those barbaric assholes.

What that yapping from the Jap PM is really about, is that they don’t like us having our troops stationed on Jap territory any more. Well, too bad, they murdered 3000 of us on Oahu, and pulled us into a war with them that cost us and the rest of the world literally MILLIONS of lives and vast destruction. The Japs can apologize forever and it still won’t be enough to make up for their crimes. So if they suffer a little extra crime at the hands of our soldiers once in awhile, I think that’s just a good reminder that they LOST.

The Japs are notoriously arrogant, in fact their most sacred national shrine, the Yasukuni Shrine, venerates the worst of the Japanese war criminals. Their national shame is not in the horrible crimes they committed, but in having lost the war. There’s no guilt for all the misery and devastation that resulted from their insanity, only shame that they failed to conquer the world and had to surrender.

Obama visiting Hiroshima is seen by the Japs as an American apology for World War II and the bombs, as if we started it instead of them. Maybe they want us to apologize for beating them as well. I know that our piece of shit President bowed all the way down to his waist level to the goddam Jap emperor, there’s a picture of it that I’m too disgusted to post here. Looking at it makes me want to vomit.

With all the negative stuff going on, the only real positive note, on a national scale anyway, is that we finally have a decent candidate for President. We all need to find the silver lining in those dark clouds overhead.

APOCOLYPSE NOW, IN MINIATURE.

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Venezuela is experiencing an apocalypse. In just two years their poverty rate has gone from a very high 25% to an astronomical 75%. The food stores are empty, as are the drug stores. There’s no food and no medicine to be bought, and people are eating their pets now.

The value of their money has decreased to only a fifth of what it was in just this past year, and is expected to decrease to a fifteenth by next year. Their money is worthless to other nations for trade, so they can’t import food and medicine. They’ve been going through a severe drought, so they haven’t been able to grow enough food to feed themselves, either. They’re starving and it’s going to get drastically worse, extremely fast.

Venezuela sits on top of one of the largest oil reserves in the world, yet they still use water power for electricity, and because of the drought there’s a shortage of power and blackouts. Because oil prices are low, money to run the country and pay government wages is scarce. Meanwhile, unemployment is rapidly increasing.

This is what Socialism brings to the people who embrace it, and it does it every single time. There’s not one single case anywhere, ever, that socialism was successful in making peoples lives better and their nation stronger. It’s always had the opposite result. Look at England, where Socialism has resulted in high prices for virtually everything, and high taxes to support their welfare state. Socialism creates welfare states, which then collapse under steadily increasing tax burdens if inflation and unwanted immigration don’t do it first. Socialist states usually become dictatorships, as Venezuela has done, and now it’s Venezuela’s turn to collapse under Socialism.

After the panicked migrations to neighboring nations, after the civil war ends, the riots die out, there’s no discernible form of government left and the famine and disease have left Venezuela nearly uninhabited, watch Russia and China compete to take over the country. I give it about a year.

PEOPLE ARE STRANGE, WHEN YOU’RE A STRANGER,

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Faces look ugly when you’re alone. When you’re strange, faces come out of the rain, when you’re strange….

Being an avid rock hound, aka a lapidarist, someone who hunts for agates and jaspers and so forth in the forests and deserts and cuts them into finished stones, for jewelry and all that, I naturally joined the little local rockhound club out here and proceeded to make friends among the members, or at least am trying to. The effort is sketchy and ongoing at this point but I’ve only been a member for a few months, so we’ll see how it goes.

There’s this young guy, I’d guess around 28 years old, and his wife who looks to be about 60 years old, yes, I’m not kidding, who invited me out to see his place this last Sunday, which was incidentally Mother’s Day. So I went, and was given the grand tour. It’s a little under an acre and all the land hereabouts is semi-arid, but they apparently have good groundwater where he’s at, about 15 miles away from my place, and the whole parcel is covered with plants, bushes and trees.

He right away took credit for the presence of all the trees, even though the trunks of them indicated at least 20 years of age and he and his wife had been there only a year and a half, but I said nothing, just let him rave. At the end of this little tour in which he told me the names of each and every single plant on the place, we went inside the house where he then read to me a sales presentation he’d written, seeking financing for his invention.

Ah. THIS is why he invited me out. Not to be friendly, not because he liked me and wanted to encourage a friendship, Noooo, he invited me out to solicit funds from me for his invention, which is nothing more than a solar-powered dew trap to catch water from the air. His sales premise was presented first, his reason why his invention would revitalize the poor economy in our area. Get this:

Free water. He’s proposing that out here in this semi-desert, we could squeeze so much water out of the air that we could all have free water, all the water we wanted. In the first place, NO, you might be able to do that in Florida in the summer when the humidity goes off the charts, but out here? In this dry air? Not a chance, but that’s only part of it. He claims that free water would free up so much money otherwise paid for water bills that all the meth addicts out here would stop using meth and go back to work because all that extra money would cause lots of new businesses to open up and lots of new jobs to be available and Prosperity Would Return And Yappa Yappa Yappa.

You can offer jobs to meth addicts all day long, and they’ll work long enough to get paid, spend it all on meth, and not show back up for work the next day, or week, or month….. Our water bills out here in some areas can be pretty high, up to $150 a month, which is a lot. But many of us have wells and the only cost is well maintenance and electricity to power the pump.

Bottom line, the guy is nuts, and it was rude as hell to con me into thinking I was invited there out of friendship and interest in me, so I drove all the way out, only to be hit up for money. What an asshole, huh? It became apparent early on to me that neither one of them was showing any interest in me at all. They didn’t ask me a single question about myself, it was all about him, mostly, what he did, what he knew, yappa yappa yappa.

I knew he had to be kind of odd, being married to a woman at least twice his age, but I thought the guy was a serious rock hound like myself, and he’s not. He’s into finding stuff he can sell. Yet, he doesn’t have an Internet connection and no means of selling anything out there in the middle of the sticks like he is. The community he lives in is known to be really heavily populated with meth addicts, and when I said something unkind to them about meth addicts I noticed they didn’t take that real kindly. So there you go. People are strange when you’re a stranger and even when you aren’t.

EBAY SUCKS, PAYPAL SUCKS, CHEAP STINGY BASTARDS

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Both the above companies are raking in $BILLIONS$ in profits, but call up someone representing either company and you get a person, always a woman, who has a hideous, incomprehensible Spanish or oriental accent and who talks so fast you can’t understand a god damned word.

These CHEAP BASTARDS will not hire Americans WHO SPEAK ENGLISH, nor will they train the poor peasants they hire in third-world countries to communicate over the Internet in the least expensive way possible, to have any level of competence at all. Those women don’t have a clue.

I had a bunch of sale notices on my ebay seller page, all saying the items were waiting on payment, and all the items were Buy It Now. So I knew something was wrong, and it sure was. Even though I’d updated both paypal and ebay with my new email address, some of my listings still said to have payment go to the old, dead email address which was no longer listed on my paypal account. Why that wasn’t automatically updated I don’t know, someone at ebay has their head up their ass. Some of us have hundreds of items listed, surely they can’t be expected to have to manually go through every single one and to the update one by one. Can they? That’s what I had to do. Damn glad there were only six.

After spending a full hour and a half dealing with the incompetents on paypal, and half of that time was waiting on hold “Due to the high volume today of…” that same tired old bullshit excuse for not having enough people to do the job, it was finally determined that yes, paypal had the money, the payments were actually made like I thought, and NO, no one was competent enough to put that money on my account where it belonged. All four of these useless people insisted that I provide them with the email addresses of the buyers. It is paypal that sends this information to me along with buyer’s addresses when someone buys, so I can contact them and ship to them, yet these people didn’t know that. I had to explain this to the last person I spoke with, four times and then she asked me for the email addresses again!. At that point I gave up, I knew the only way left to me was to just cancel the sales.

So I ended up cancelling all the sales and manually fixing all the problems at my end since neither ebay nor paypal was capable of doing their own job, emailing all the people to tell them what happened, and waited for them to cancel their payments and choose whether to buy the stuff again or not. So far, 4 of the 6 payments to nowhere have been taken care of, and I’m still waiting to hear from the last 2.

Ebay and paypal are both constantly changing everything, which no doubt is of great benefit to them, but it’s a constant pain in the ass to those of us who helped make these arrogant, inconsiderate assholes into the monopolies they’ve become. I guess they’re too busy enjoying all those billions of dollars to remember to give us customers a little consideration, but you know, nothing lasts forever, someday they’ll fall into ruin because of some new tech advance, and I’ll be laughing as loud as anyone.

THERE’S ONLY ONE FAT MAN IN NORTH KOREA

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

There’s a series of photos on CNN (yes, I do actually check out CNN from time to time, it’s always good to know what the enemy is doing) that show what life is supposedly like in N. Korea. Of course, none of the poverty and misery, the labor camps and mass imprisonment and the poor living conditions of most N. Koreans is shown.

What CNN presents to us is propaganda, a picture of success, of a prosperous people with beautiful buildings and nice homes, instead of the reality. But one thing stands out that can’t be prevented from standing out, which is that of all the thousands of adults and children shown in these pictures, not one of them is even slightly overweight. Every single person is either skinny or slender.

These people are so totally controlled that all housing is owned by the government. Living space is free and assigned and if you want to move, you have to find someone who will trade places with you and then get the move approved by some local official.

In a photo of the N. Korea Science and Technology Center, people are at computers connected to the Internet, according to the caption. But no mention is made to explain why everyone in the photo is wearing very heavy clothing. Obviously, this “Sciences and Technology Center” is totally unheated and it’s COLD.

No food, no heat. No wonder tens of thousands of them die every winter. These people all live on a thin edge, with their survival depending entirely on the whim of one fat man, Kim Jong Un and their own strict adherence to whatever is politically correct.

Becoming even slightly overweight is seen as an act of treason against the state. It’s a sign that the person is taking more than their fair share of food and people who look too prosperous are sent to forced labor camps as a means of terrorizing everyone else into consuming as little as possible. The purpose of this, of course, is to make sure that what little there is, is spread around evenly.

This is why Kim Jong Un is the only fat man in all of North Korea. It shows that he is the Number One top man, the only one who can get away with being fat, the one no one can punish for eating too much. Now you know.

HIGH CLASS WHITE HOUSE DINNER

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

The dignity and decorum of the single most respected residence in our nation was brought to a new low last night by our President, who threw a party for the people of the press, a traditional affair known as the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. For moderator of the speeches to be given he chose black (of course) comedian Larry Wilmore, who proceeded to conduct what’s know as a “roast” of the more famous attendees, and spewing highly insulting jokes about those who oppose Obama.

He did give out some praise, all directed at black journalists only, and mentioned that black CNN host Don Lemon was in the crowd. Don Lemon responded by laughing and giving him the finger. How very classy a thing to do in the White House, huh?

At the end of his litany of supposedly humorous verbal attacks, he said of President Obama, “Yo, Barry, you did it, my nigga!”

I will be so happy when this racist Marxist, this incredibly horrible and evil man, is long gone from our Presidential House.

FNARR CONTINUED

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Got the cable Internet hooked up yesterday morning after 4 days without any connectivity. Then called the satellite internet company, Exede, told them to discontinue their service and got a long, bitter sounding harangue from the bitch there about how I just paid a month ahead automatically via my credit card and they weren’t going to pro-rate a farking dime back to me, and I have 30 days to return their crappy equipment or I’d be charged $300 and blah blah blah. I knew in my heart the greedy bastards weren’t going to refund me the money for the 26 days I overpaid, but their greed is a big part of why I dumped them. That and the really crappy service from day one. We didn’t have cable out here when I moved here and it was a choice of which of two high-priced satellite services we picked, and both were bad.

Within about 30 seconds of my hanging up on the nasty bitch, my email through them was disconnected. I expected that too, after listening to that whip-cracking voice, and of course there was no way I could find to save my email. So I said Screw it, worse things have happened, and deleted the whole thing. I did save the email files to a separate folder first and I’m still trying to figure out a way to open them or associate them with a new email address. But it will all come together. I did discover that the address of every email I ever sent is stored in some inner sanctum of the program, and if I start a New Message and type in one letter, all the emails that start with that letter appear in a drop-down box. So content may be lost but the basic contact info is all still there.

With Exede/ViaSat, I paid about $60 a month and got 10 gigs of in/out a month, with a download speed of around 1 meg a sec or so. I now pay cable $25 a month, get 300 gigs in/out a month and a download speed of up to 50 megs a sec. Exede has always given me problems. The service would go out on perfectly clear days and of course it always went out during really bad weather. Connectivity was variable at best, and would change from hour to hour. There’s a $95 service charge to have someone make it work again if they had to come to the house, or you could pay $5.99 a month insurance against breakdowns of their equipment that you were already being charged rent for.

So BUYER BEWARE, as far as I’m concerned, Exede/ViaSat totally SUCKS.

DEFACING OUR CURRENCY

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

It’s against the law in the U.S. to deface coinage. People do it without thinking much about it, and most of us are unaware that it’s illegal to damage a coin, but it is. Unfortunately, there is no such law regarding paper currency. I say unfortunately because Obama wants to uglify our $20 bills by removing President Andrew Jackson’s face and replacing it with Harriet Tubman’s.

Harriet Tubman was a black woman, a slave back in the Civil War days, who escaped and went back to guide other slaves to freedom. Slavery was a very unfortunate chapter of the history of some of our states – just some, not all – and when those states tried to secede from our Union in order to continue to base their economies on slavery, the rest of the states, our national government, went to war, ended slavery and united the country. So while slavery was allowed in parts of our country during it’s early history, the fortunate side of our history is that most of us found this to be unacceptable and a huge number of Americans died to end it. Nearly all of them were White Americans.

Andrew Jackson was a great president who added Florida to the United States, among many other achievements, and while Ms. Tubman was a hero to black people, she didn’t remotely compare to President Jackson. She compares a lot more to World War heroes like Sgt. York and Audie Murphy. So why not put a war hero’s face on the $20? Have you seen a picture of Ms. Tubman? Talk about UGLY. I hope that if this actually comes to pass, that all $20′s ever handed to me after that are done so face down. This woman was hideous.

Did anyone one suggest to Brakk Obastard that maybe we should have one of the great Native Americans on that bill? Squanto? Sitting Bull? Red Cloud? Cochise? Geronimo? How about Pocahantas? There’s a lot of them who were all far more accomplished and certainly as courageous as Ms. Tubman.

This racist asshole President of ours wants to deface our money by taking off the faces of white people and replacing them with portraits of blacks. If we’re going to change the appearance so drastically of our paper money, then let’s be fair. Blacks have done more to harm this country than to help it, and it was only when they were slaves that they controlled themselves. Once they were freed, they became a constant source of crime.

It’s the Native Americans who are owed a debt by this country if any racial group is, so put a great Chief or other Native American on the $10 and put Tubman’s face on the $2 bill and leave the $20 as it is. That would be fair and equitable.

CONGRATULATIONS, CITIZENS OF BRAZIL

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Hearty congratulations to the people of Brazil in finally getting that Leftist mess, Dilma Rousseff, out of office. While the job isn’t done yet and it will take a few more months to see her out of office and into prison, it looks very solid that this will happen. NOW PLEASE DON’T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN. That’s what Americans need to do, clean out the bad politicians, by force if necessary, and put in people who work for the people instead of their rich cronies.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Our Constitution says that we have the right to say anything we want, with exceptions. People don’t seem to understand this.

You can’t use speech to cause riots, panic, or other harm. For instance, you can’t leap up and scream “FIRE, FIRE” in a crowded theater. It could cause a panic run for the exits that would get people trampled to death. You can’t go creating public disturbances, it’s against the law everywhere to disturb the peace. You can’t verbally threaten the lives of people.

You can lie about others and slander their names without being jailed for it, but you can be sued for slander in civil court, so slandering speech is only free until someone sues you for doing it.

The issue of Free Speech has been coming up frequently lately in our politics, especially regarding social media sites which appear to be doing some censoring of postings on the candidates. Social media sites are private companies and they can censor anything they like, anytime, just as I do here on Newsbleat when someone posts some comment that I think is patent bullshit or otherwise not to my liking. People have bitched at me, saying that I’m violating Freedom of Speech. I am not, Newsbleat is MY freedom of speech, not anyone elses. It goes back to the old saying that if you want a free press you need to own one.

Protesters disrupting speakers, drowning them out with noise, is not protected Free Speech. It’s Disturbing the Peace. Although they’re usually allowed to get away with it, they are violating the law. If it happens on private property the protester can be removed for trespassing. This is why Trump was in his legal rights to call for the removal of various protesters at some of his rallies. It’s simple. If I pay to rent an auditorium, I get to say who comes in the doors and who has to leave.

The protesters at these events seem to think that they can say and do anything as long as they don’t commit assault, under the shield of Free Speech, and they’re wrong. The people they’re harassing have a Constitutional Right as well and it’s called Freedom of Assembly, which also has certain limitations, the most important being PEACEFUL assembly. Even in a public place, if the assembly is peaceful and protesters are noisy and disruptive, the police have the right and obligation to remove the protesters and charge them with Disturbing the Peace.

People need to remember that our Constitution’s laws are designed to maintain a peaceful society, not allow one that is disruptive under some misconception that everyone gets to freely annoy everyone else if they feel like it. That’s not how it is.

I’M INSULATED

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

According to our national census, about 81% of all Americans live in cities. The other 19% live in rural areas and I’m one of them. The little tiny town where I live can hardly be called a city, or even much of a town. It has a post office and a little tiny grocery store and that’s it. It is butted up against a larger town, which is still of no great shakes. I think our total population between the two might be around 3500 people scattered out and around, with lots of bare land in between.

It’s the cities that catch all the hell, because that’s where the people are concentrated, and it’s the terror groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM) that only focus their efforts there. BLM actually doesn’t seem to be correctly described as a group. They have leaders, who mostly seem to rely on the readiness of young blacks to riot and raise hell simply for the fun of it, to raise a mob of demonstrators when they want to stage a protest. Ferguson, Missouri is a perfect example. The BLM thugs went in there and started a protest over the death of a big, husky young black who stole a carton of cigarets at a store. The store owner reported the theft to police, a patrol officer spotted the thief and tried to arrest him. The thief attacked the officer and tried to take his gun from him, the officer shot the thief in self-defense. That’s when the BLM people came in and got a riot going that tore up the city of Ferguson for weeks before it ended, then the officer was found to have acted properly by a grand jury and the black riots started all over again.

Islamic terrorists target the most densely populated places they can find, for maximum effect, just like racist terrorists and homosexual (LGBT) terrorists. The only thing I can say for the queers is that at least they don’t kill people, they just make a huge pain in the ass out of themselves, and yes, the pun is intended. I haven’t heard of any Gay Pride parades in awhile now, probably because it’s been too cold in most places for them to parade naked. Sudden thought: What an appropriate place for Muslims wearing bomb vests to blow themselves up at. Homosexual behavior is an Islamic crime.

But it’s like living on one planet and reading about things going on, on another planet. None of that protest and terror stuff happens out here in the boondocks of America. Cities are exciting places to live but they’re also dangerous and always have been. Most crimes and the worst crimes happen in the cities. The air is dirtier, everything is dirtier, there’s more disease spread around, and faster, traffic is much worse, anger and frustration levels are way higher for city people than country people, the cost of living is much higher.

It’s true that there’s not much social life in the country, and jobs are scarcer, but people live longer in rural areas and are closer to Nature. Everything in life is a trade-off. The great thing about living in the country is that you can visit the city any time you want, and then go back to your rural home with your dogs and cats, horses and chickens. You can have both and not worry about a gang of black thugs flash-mobbing the local stores or some crazy Muslim exploding himself at your Memorial Day parade.

LIFE AT L4

Living off the grid planet is becoming increasingly attractive. There are 5 Lagrange Points out there, between Earth and Sun, and even more if you include the other planets in our system, although it starts getting pretty inhospitable when you move closer in or farther out, for us organic critters. Lagrange Points are positions in an orbital configuration of two large bodies where a small object affected only by gravity can maintain a stable position relative to the two large bodies. In other words, if your orbital speed is right, you stay in the same place permanently.

Lagrange Points have been a tool in science fiction stories for decades, as they’re great places to put self-sustaining satellite cities. We peeps have some satellites at Lagrange Points now. Anyway, given that the Earth looks to be winding down, so to speak, in it’s ability to sustain our burgeoning masses, let alone find room for us all, moving out into space is looking more and more like the thing to do for the mega-rich among us. Just think, no illegal alien problems, no China threatening to invade everyone, no North Korean 300 pound ball of pig fat ordering everyone to eat plant roots. By the time it’s possible to build places like this, billionaires will be doing it, creating their own private islands in space. Of course, one Lagrange Point can accommodate more than one space island, and no doubt one or two of the five will become the most fashionable and there will be squabbles over who has the right to build there, and who isn’t welcome in the neighborhood.

I can see it now, Carlos Slim’s descendants trying to move in next door to some Chinese billionaire and the Mexicans and Chinese both fighting over the Interstellar drug trade or the most coveted position, or installing nuclear missiles, or declaring the entire area to be the property of China or Mexico. Yeah, even in space they’d fight with each other. Can you imagine how the Saudi oil sheiks would act out there? They’d claim all the sun energy as their own, setting up huge solar grids that blocked out the other space islands, and then offering to sell them solar energy.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I think that cave living right here on Earth may be the best bet.

BATTLING BUNGHOLES?

Saturday, March 12th, 2016

Fox News has been running commentary after commentary attacking Donald Trump and blaming the organized protest against him in Chicago last night on him instead of the assholes who attacked him, while CNN has been steadily saying things in support of him and attacking those who violated his right to Freedom of Speech.

What the hell? CNN is supportive of Trump? Can this simply be CNN seizing the advantage here, to make Fox look bad? If so, it’s sure working. CNN is looking more “Fair and Balanced” these days than Fox has in quite a while. I never imagined I’d ever say that. They still give Hitlery and Bernie the Red plenty of air time, but their message is steadily moderating toward the middle and away from the Left. Does this mean there’s still hope that pigs will some day fly?

DIE, BITCH

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

There’s a lot of talk in the media lately about the death of the Republican Party, or possible death, caused by the election of Donald Trump and the resultant ousting of the Old Elite Guard.

I really don’t care what kills the Republican Party, I just know, as most of us do, that it deserves to die and rot in the ground. It’s been run for decades by the mega-rich, whose only goal has been to gain more and more power and wealth at the expense of all the rest of us. This is exactly why George Bush father and son both promised to build a wall to protect our border with Mexico and have not, lying to us instead while spending billions of dollars APPEARING to do it, and making a fortune in kickbacks from the builders who were paid far more than they should have been, just like the famous $800 hammers for NASA, the bail-outs of Wall Street and the banks and on and on ad nauseum.

Both parties have done their best to destroy our Constitution and take away our rights and if they don’t crash and die, then I’m for anarchy. We need a revolution in this country. In fact we need a revolution on the whole planet, we need to wipe all government off the face of the Earth. But right now I’ll settle for one here, that would at least be a start.

And it needs to be said that if the Republican Party dies it won’t be Trump that killed it, it’s already dying member by member through suicide. When scumsucking, corporate pirate, job-destroying assholes like Mitt Romney creep back out from under their slimy rocks, paid, aided and abetted by the Elitists to smear their own leading candidate, they take knives to their own throats and deserve to be buried in political oblivion.

LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD

Monday, March 7th, 2016

A friend from Washington state called the other day and as usual, the conversation drifted over a wide variety of subjects. One of them was hippies and what being a hippie was all about. My friend is convinced that hippies were unwashed, long-haired, drug-using bums and nothing I could say did anything to dissuade her from that view.

The truth is that hippies were all about love, ending war, getting along with each other. That’s what love-ins were about. Love, simple as that. So what happened is that the hippies were attacked by the media and the lie spread that all hippies were dirty mooching bums. Most hippies, and I was one of them, were clean people who held down jobs like anyone else. We were just tired of our leaders sending us off to die in strange lands so they could get richer and have more power. We were tired of being treated as cannon fodder in our daily lives, and we wanted it to stop. We wanted to stop all the hate.

Nothing lasts, and now there’s more hatred in the world than there’s ever been before in my lifetime, or since the Second World War ended, anyway. I read in this morning’s news that the Islamic State fanatics chopped off the head of a 16 year old boy for failing to show up for Friday prayers. There’s a photo of it on Breitbart News, right before his head was lopped off, and in the background is a big crowd of men all gawking for a look, some standing on objects to give them a higher, better view. What kind of mentality would want to see a boy being brutally murdered? That’s an amazing amount of hatred and a massive lack of love.

Love seems to be going out of the world. What we see now that’s supposed to be demonstrations of love, is sex. But sex isn’t love. It can be an expression of love, one of many different ways to express love, but we call having sex “making love”, when it very seldom really is.

Love is expressed by giving and sharing, helping each other, being kind to each other and respecting each other. There’s none of that in Islam, certainly none in Islamic State, where acts expressing love are seen as weakness and possibly even heresy that deserves death.

I’m reminded so much of the Nazis, the utter lack of leniency, sympathy, kindness. You follow the rules exactly or you die, mistakes are not allowed. And I wonder, is humanity going to allow this cancer to continue to spread? It wouldn’t be a first, Nazism was allowed to spread until it threatened to engulf the world, only then did people unite against it and by then, the cost in human life to defeat it was in the millions of people. Now here we go again.

MORE POLITICAL OUTGASSING

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Just a few remarks about Trump et al. The general public doesn’t give a crap about the CPAC or even knows what it is. Certainly they don’t attend it or pay attention to all the speeches made there. They hear about some of it on the news and quickly forget every word.

For candidates for office and those who aspire to some office, attending the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) affair is important, to see and be seen by their peers. For the rest of us, it means nothing. We don’t care.

At this latest one, presidential hopeful John Kasich was harshly attacked in a speech by Michelle Malkin, Carly Fiorina attacked the attackers and Cruz and Rubio attacked Trump. Sounds like a fun event, all that negativity, huh?

Trump said to hell with CPAC and went off to campaign in Kansas instead, no doubt the smarter move. For one thing, his absence took all the air out of all those who planned to attack him, leaving Fox News and others with nothing to report about who said what to Trump and what Trump responded with, or how Trump may have phrased something, or stumbled over a word, or whatever. He gave them nothing to report while telling the people of Kansas that he thinks they’re a lot more important than any CPAC meeting.

I have my own concerns about the sort of president Donald Trump will make, but out of the entire field, he’s really the only choice.
