Well, Kalifornikans, You Made Your Bed…

As a fourth year of drought continues to drain aquifers and reservoirs, …but the delta smelt is still swimming happily around in water that absolutely, totally, under no circumstances can be used for humans, lest the darling garbage fish be discomfited. Sooooo…. California water managers and environmentalists are urging adoption of

Great Moments in Applied Socialism

…in which we, once again, observe the blatant hypocrisy of socialists. Remember the L.A. $15/hr minimum wage law? The Labor leaders in the Peepul’s Republik of Socialistifornia certainly do, since they were some of its most strident supporters. Except now that the shit is about to hit the fan, they aren’t so much in favor

Well, It’s About Freaking Time

The Great Republic of Texas, long considered a bastion of Second Amendment rights, has outlawed the open carry of handguns since the post-Civil War days. 44 other states permit it, either unrestricted or with a permit. 44! But that just changed. Our state Congress Critters just finally decided to get in line with the rest

Memorial Day 2015

Don’t thank me for my service. Today is not our, the living’s, day. And don’t wish me a “happy” Memorial Day. Today is not a celebration, it is a solemn remembrance of those who should be sitting in the empty chair. But it is only held in reverence by the few who understand. The rest

The proof really is in the pudding. Click on the photo below to see it full size. It’s a parking receipt from the Seattle-Tacoma Airport Valet Parking Area.

While The Band Plays On

Does anyone with an IQ greater than a paramecium really think The Mad Mullahs in Tehran are ever, ever, EVAH going to let anyone in on their nuclear program’s ambitions ??? (H/T Times of Israel) Let’s just start with this reasonably clear statement: Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday ruled out allowing nuclear

A Study In Contrasts

Paging through my daily reading, I came across an excellent piece over at Townhall by Michelle Malkin. I chased down the hyperlinks that sharply contrasted two commencement speeches, one by the First Wookie and another by Denzel Washington. Denzel, a Pentecostal Christian, repeatedly emphasized that we all owe our existence to G-d. Our talents and

Armed Forces Day 2015

We here in the Empire would be sadly remiss should we fail to recognize that today is Armed Forces Day. In spite of the feckless *spit* administration that’s diminished our standing in the world, America remains free because of her Citizen Soldiers. Old George summed it up much, much better than I ever could. “When

Alive and Semi-Well, But Behind Enemy Lines…. Again

Welcome to Hell

It seems to me that NBC has it’s collectivist panties in a knot about the treatment of various scumbags amongst us. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the Boston Marathon bomber,  should he avoid the death penalty, is destined to wind up at a Super-Max facility in Colorado called the Administrative Maximum Facility — aka ADX, or “supermax”. First

Just a brief word

Wanted to let you all know I am well, and just taking things one day at a time. The service was packed, testament to the wonderful and loving lady I had the joy of calling my wife for 23 years. I am told that you never stop grieving, but that each day becomes a little

Welcome to the race comrade!!

Bernie Sanders – S-VT has declared his candidacy for President. That “S” in his qualifier is for Socialist. That’s me being 100% honest. He’s admitted it freely. The NYT and other MSM lemmings  can call Bernie Sanders an “Independent” until the very depths of hell freeze, it doesn’t make this particular leopard change it’s spots.
