Yes, We’re Still Alive

And if nobody really wonders or cares, we blame all of that on ourselves.

But we at least owe to to whomever still checks out this site to see if anything’s happening, and G-d bless you for it, we are truly not deserving of you, to let you know that we’re not dead.

We, oh bugger, I am just extremely tired. My life right now basically consists of eating, sleeping and working as much as I can possibly get away with in order to keep my family fed. No, I don’t ask for pity, a lot of people have it a lot worse that I do, I’m just trying, inadequately I’m sure, to explain why I just can’t find the energy or time to do much other than that.

It is what it is. Priorities.

Also, after almost two decades of this, of trying to sound the alarm, knowing what I do from what I learned growing up where I did, and noticing that the majority of my fellow Americans are too pignorant and just plain uneducated to ever want to listen to actual experience (and I’m not talking about you, dear readers, but all of you and myself don’t exactly constitute a majority), I’m just getting worn out.

You can lead a parched, dying horse to water, but you can’t make the imbecilic, dumb, ready for the glue factory animal drink. Apparently. When I was young and naive, I thought that maybe people would listen to other people with actual real life experience of the dumb ideas rattling about their brain group housings. I was young and naive. People don’t listen to facts, they listen to what they want to hear and ignore everything else if it even mildly contradicts their masturbatory fantasies.

It doesn’t mean that I’ve given up. I’m not, unlike the majority of our fellow citizens, blind to what is inevitably going to happen. What can’t go on, won’t. And the shit is going to hit the fan when it can’t go on any longer. And when that happens, as it is becoming ever more depressingly obvious that it will, that no amount of common horse sense and basic understanding of history (which is no longer taught in this once great country) will be able to avert it, then I’ll be where I’m needed, doing what needs to be done.

I’ve just gotten intensely tired of shouting and pissing into the wind. And with that, and the sheer amount of other issues in the lives of myself and my beloved family needing my immediate attention, I’ve become lazy in writing. After all, after two decades, what can I possibly say that I haven’t already said? And if it didn’t take after all that time, what is the likelihood of it taking if I keep repeating myself for another two decades (if G-d wills it that I should be punished with watching mankind’s incurable stupidity and ignorance for that much longer)?

I apologize for that. This site, originally just a place for me to vent to myself and the two people who might want to read it became, faster than I could have imagined, so much more than that. I cannot count the number of wonderful, caring, passionate American patriots and just plain troublemakers aiming to misbehave just like myself that I’ve met thanks to this site. I have been truly blessed and every minute I’ve invested in it has been worth it with interest. I wouldn’t do a damn thing different, because it might mean that even just one of you awesome people would have never crossed my path and made my life so much richer because of it.

You, to me, are all family. The times we’ve shared, the parties some of us have met at, the stories we’ve told, the things we’ve all gone through together. That’s all valuable beyond compare. And that’s why I can’t just pull the plug. Maybe I should, but I just can’t. This site isn’t about me, it’s about you. All of you. This site wouldn’t be what it is without you, so to pull the plug would not be just dropping a “hobby”, it would be burying something that, it is obvious to me, I didn’t really build. At least I didn’t build it alone. I couldn’t have.

So yes, I’m still here, for those who care. And as to those who don’t, I don’t blame you. I blame me.

Thatisall.

As an old dog with a bone in this forum, I have had three decades of lean sprinkled with many enriching moments and coming here was sanctuary from the lies and frustrations of the world set on fire. Learning how to use the intertubes to find fact to oppose the fiction, is something I have learned here. Oh yeah, the… Read more »

Won’t be Rahmboland for much longer. He’s getting out while he still can. And with Emperor Mike apparently coming under FBI scrutiny, there may be hope. Even with Fat Bastard now in the governor’s mansion.
BTW, where in Chiraq do you hail from? I grew up on the west side (in Bartlett now-on the DuPage side).

Sorry about the late reply, I didn’t get the Read More feature. I live in the city on the southside, Morgan Park. 111th & Longwood Dr. Accept for a four year hitch in the Navy and some Californicating, I’ve been dodging Dem LLL’s and raising a family of Anti-Idiotarian pups and pupettes to their great consternation. I have over two… Read more »

A Belarusian model, who said she had proof that President Trump’s campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election, has now backtracked and says she made up the claims.

Glad to hear from you Emperor. Relying on Sundance to keep me up to date on the evil goings on in DC. At 100 miles away, I’m way, way too close to the stench. Hope all is well with you and God Bless.

FWIW, I’m still watching. G*D is still watching. Even Dave is still watching. The country may wobble around a bit between leftist asshattery and right wing “Oh, HELL no!” but I think we can keep the wheels rolling for a bit.

Hold the line! Don’t Yield to what you know is wrong!

My blog has a minuscule following. I don’t care. I write because it’s better than the alternative. If someone agrees with me, fine. if not. also fine. I also try to break things up and not do nothing but politics all the time. My counterpart, the Angry Systems Administrator wrote about switching to a new mobile phone service. Right now,… Read more »

I’ve pretty much stopped blogging altogether. I limit myself to about twenty minutes a day twisting nipples on FaceCrack, and check in here every now and then to make sure the electrons are still flowing, but other than that? Not so much. On January 1st, I sold my Galaxy S9+ on Craigslist for $150. I’ve been limiting my Internet time… Read more »

I’ve actually got a really tasty topic to explore, when I’m not prepping for a theater audition. I’m not sure that I’d come in quite where everyone else would, but I think it’d be fun. Specifically: there’s a study out (would have to re-find the link) that suggests that people with conservative mindsets perceive threats much more than do those… Read more »

We were about ready to hold an Imperial Game Room sale and auction off the DVDs o’ Doom to the sickest highest bidder. Keep the home fries burning and your powder wet, Mein Imperator. We really need to get the old gang together for a Rott Fest. Oh the wails of laughter that would be had….

Don’t burn the home fries. They’re nasty when burnt.

Not if they’re burnt just enough to get that crispy crunch and a little bit of smoky flavor. It’s how real home fries are made, unlike those mushy piles of shit that most restaurants try to pass off these days. ?

Not for me. Don’t like mush, but I like my carbon combined with oxygen and hydrogen.

Glad you’re still kicking, Emperor!

These days, blogging is about joining the attention economy. I write for myself because I like refining my ideas on various items. My ideas are a bit left of many here, but they still lean right, and quite frankly, I come here because it’s nice to hang out with responsible, intelligent adults.

My watch on this Hadrian’s Wall of sense and reason has lapsed too. For now, I’m back. Helps that I’m cooling my heels with a 30-day ban on Facebook for antagonizing weak-livered Californians.

I still exist. Howdy to Carl, Jay, Bill, Chris, Bren, Michael, DJ, Mike, Terra, Azy, Vulcan and any other “old timers” from back in the day.

Life goes on, my Son is 19 now, and I’m gearing him (and his friends) up for the inevitable. AR’s are fun to build and more fun to shoot. Take Care all.
