Not really, but there has been some signs of rigor mortis. Well it has been a wild ride this last year, but things are looking up. I’ve completely escaped the Hell Hole of Travis County for residency and work. I’m rebuilding slowly from a life torn asunder by unpleasant (meaning just plain shitty) and unexpected events of my own and some other’s doings. We’re talking losing it all, where one’s entire holdings of those physical items fit nicely into a car. Books and my clothing I had, but no electronics and in my case, a nice DVD library as well g.o.n.e. Yet the good L_rd had other things in mind for my journey through life and it IS good.
What did this poor excuse for a human get one may wonder? An awesome, kind, loving, business owning, MIT educated lady that treats me like a King, 5 acres of land (all entirely paid for mind you) in Hays County, far out in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, where we can shoot our fine collection of boom sticks while sitting on the porch. Employment that doesn’t involve ANY commute on other than two-lane country roads replete with beautiful scenery and wild life, about 25 minutes away. Just horrid eh? By the way she can out-cook the vast majority of those calling themselves “chefs” out there. Truth be told we do have our minor differences, she’s a large “L” libertarian and rather liberal on some social issues, but we’ve agreed to disagree there, in other words a non-issue. G-d has given me a priceless gift, a second chance at a a happy, fulfilling life.
I only need an easy way to resume posting on these pages due to a lack of access to a real keyboard, an iPad just isn’t all that suitable for writing very easy at t’all, but that is being rectified soon.
Life does go on and those changes the Big Guy throws at us, while sometimes painful for awhile can ultimately be a very good thing. I’m living proof of that. Time to feed the chickens, so I’m signing off for now.
May you all be blessed by He who runs this show.
Your humble correspondent, JB.
So here’s the short version, but do go read the full one here:
It’s like this: The absence of heating over the past 17 years has heated up the previously cold surface waters who cooled down because of the previous warming. This newly heated (by the absence of heat) water then sinks beneath the cold water where it hides from our temperature sensors because… Because racist! Or maybe Gaia is just one really awesomely sneaky bitch, hiding warm water away from us by forcing it to ignore the laws of physics (heat rises, cold sinks, but that was probably something we learned because the Koch Bros. used to finance physics, so nevermind, DENIER!) and sink where it should rise.
We herewith Imperially decree that anybody not merely agreeing with, but even expressing doubts as to whether the glowbull wormeners are full of bovine cac, is to be considered too dumb to even talk with. Or to. Or to be in the vicinity of.
The Prozi bird cage liner, Salon (socialist), has a writer (for lack of a more descriptive word) who really loves putting her utter ignorance of history on display. While mocking the knowledge of history of others, of course.
On Wednesday’s edition of “Outnumbered,” the hosts discussed ISIS’ beheading of journalist James Foley, and co-host Andrea Tantaros conflated the small group of extraordinarily violent rebels with all of Islam.
A very, very small group. Minuscule, even. Barely even there! It’s truly a mystery how they got to sit on 1/3 of Iraq and 1/3 of Syria, considering their utter insignificance. Why, there can’t be more than three or four players on Caliph al-Bama’s Junior Varsity Team.
Funny how pretty much every single violent conflict on the planet involves those “small groups of “extraordinarily” (nothing extraordinary about it) violent “rebels”, isn’t it.
“A lonesome cowboy rode into the sunset. Another lonesome cowboy rode into the sunset. And another one, and another one, and pretty soon the sunset was utterly obscured by hundreds of thousands of lonesome cowboys.”
Joanna then goes on to quote the lovely Andrea’s suggestion that the only way to deal with rabid animals is to put them down with a bullet to the head, which is absolutely correct. After which Joanna decides to go all in for the Idiot of the Day prize:
First of all, Andrea, if you’ve studied the history,
First of all, Joanna, if you’d studied grammar, you’d note that “history” does not require a preceding “the”, unless it’s followed immediately by “of [insert topic here].” You’ll note, for instance, that His Imperial Majesty didn’t include a “the” before “grammar”, because that would just be… ignorant. And we might be in danger of scoring a writing gig at your rag if we were to display such utter illiteracy, which would be even worse than merely appearing ignorant.
…you’ll know that Islam has been responsible for some of the most vibrant, productive civilizations for thousands of years.
Second of all, Joanna, if you’d studied math, you’d know that 1,400 does not equal “thousands.” You’d need at least two of said thousands to warrant a plural “s”.
Third of all, Joanna, if those “civilizations” were so “vibrant and productive”, then where are they now? Did their vibrancy and productiveness not include basic survival skills, or were they just too darn busy productively vibrating in perfect harmony to be bothered with such minor details? Also, Joanna, kindly explain to us how it is that whatever remains of those pillars of civilization is still stuck in the century that Islam was founded? Indoor plumbing? The Roman Empire had that, and they beat the “vibrant and productive civilizations (just how many of them were there, anyway?) of Islam by almost a millennium. Considering how great Islam was at stealing the accomplishments of other civilizations and claim the credit for themselves (see “math” and “astronomy”, to name two), one might be forgiven for assuming that they’d at least have picked up that much.
What, exactly, was the nature of said “vibrancy” and “productiveness” anyway? The sack of Constantinople? The Gates of Vienna? Tours? Have they made any achievements outside of the realms of military conquest (or ignominious defeat), sacking of truly civilized cities and putting the inhabitants to the sword? Is “convert or die” a symbol of their clear superiority over everybody? Clitoridectomies? Stoning rape victims for “adultery?” Stoning homosexuals? They still do that, you know, with the enthusiastic approval of their fellow Muslims.
You might want to look that word up in a dictionary not written by Noam Chimpsky.
Just where in the name of Pluto’s cock did you “study” history, Joanna? Did you play “Assassin’s Creed” for a whole entire weekend or something?
Tell us, Joanna, did your family spend the last umpteen generations breeding for ignorance, or is it just a talent that comes naturally to you?
Did it ever occur to you that after tens of thousands of Islamic atrocities your “tiny extremist minority” pablum might be wearing a little thin, that maybe it would have been helpful to your doe-eyed theory if just once the rest of the Islamic world were to have stood up as one and said “enough already, not in our fucking names!”?
If Christians, for instance, were to suddenly erupt into outbreaks of beheadings, infanticide, rape and vandalism, do you really think that Christians the world over would just sit down and say “ho-hum” and, more importantly, would the likes of you accept that and excuse all of Christendom with a “but those are just a tiny minority of extraordinarily violent Christians?”
No, you wouldn’t. And you’d be damn right not to, were the rest of Christendom to not utter a peep in protest, but we all know that wouldn’t happen, don’t we?
Those hypothetical murderous Christian extremists would be hunted down by other Christians, hunted down and executed and set on fire faster than you blinkered idiots could word a stern diplomatic missive of disapproval.
So kindly shut up, Joanna. Just go away. Stick your fingers in your ears and go play with your transgendered, inclusive Barbie dolls until the grownups have finished patching up the security blanket under which you sleep every night. At which point a simple “thank you” would be nice but, to tell you the truth, we wouldn’t hold our breaths waiting for it.
Oddly enough, the media has been busy scrubbing all trace of the video of the koranimals’ brutal murder away. Wouldn’t want the unwashed masses to get the “wrong ideas” about those poor, misunderstood, oppressed representatives of the “religion of peace”, would we?

Again. Tom DeLay, also not guilty of anything, was the last time the communist cunts in Austin tried to nail an Evil Republican. This will turn out no differently. But it’s a huge compliment to Governor Perry, because the only times the commies on the socialist reservation that is Austin pull this stunt is when

LC & IB Angrywebmaster has a post up about the whole St Louis Mess™. Not about who did what to whom and why, the subject of endless and, in many cases (looking at you, Lame Stream Media) unsubstantiated speculation across the Internet, but about the whole militarization of our police departments.

You’d have to put your brain in a box – lock it with chains and a padlock – and send it into orbit for the next year to actually take anything Eric Holder says seriously anymore.

Allahpundit is getting all queasy just thinking about what the ISIS types might be doing with the Yazidi women and children that they’re capturing, and we honestly can’t blame him. About the getting queasy part, that is. Although our reaction is more along the lines of projectile vomiting and an oath to kill every last

Everything old is new again, and Europe is rapidly returning to its anti-Semitic roots: In totally unrelated news, the British government revealed on Tuesday that they are suffering from a terminal case of moral equivalency and are prepared to cut off military aid to Israel if “significant hostilities” resume in Gaza. Secretary of State for
