So let me get this straight. It takes between 21 to 35 days for a Russian oil tanker to get to US ports to be offloaded. 
It takes between 35 and 60 days for a tanker from the Middle East to make the same trek. 
It takes about 10 hours to load the tanker and up to 24 hours to unload. If it has to wait in port to get to an unloading dock, it can take up to 3 days. 
The average tanker burns 2,625 gallons of diesel fuel per hour. 22.38 pounds of CO2 are created from burning 1 gallon of diesel fuel. 
So, in one hour, a  tanker ship hauling oil to a refinery in the US creates 58,757.5 pounds of CO2 per hour. Averaging the travel time of the tankers, that's 27.67 million tons of CO2 per trip. 
In comparison, your car creates between 6 and 9 tons per year. 
Without going into all the equations of how many tankers come to the US per year, let alone our exports, will someone please explain to me how drilling our own oil and moving it through pipelines, along with importing oil from Canada via pipeline will not be more environmentally "green" for the world.
Please explain to me why buying oil from another country is good for the environment?? 
Or better yet how buying oil from another country is better than pumping our own oil??
There’s nothing green about this other than these elites are lining their pockets with green.

Great Big Brass Ones on This Lady

Biden’s Interior Secretary Completely Clueless When Confronted with Memo From Her Department Calling for Shut Down of New Oil Leases (VIDEO) 

I swear, these people. Watch this video, and watch the guy sitting behind this person haaland. Watch his reaction when manchin tells her that her memo is shutting down oil drilling.

And listen to her stutter.

Sen. Hawley Blasts Sec. Granholm for Claiming Biden Policies Had No Effe...

Energy Secretary Granholm is a flatout bitch.

Hangman's Noose

 Well, I wanted to make a post about how to tie a hangman's noose. 

So I went to utube and found a short 1 minute video and I shared it here on the blog. 

Well, utube didn't like that and wouldn't allow it to be played here, you could only watch it on their tube. So, if you want to watch the video on how to tie a hangman knot, here is the link: Hangman's Noose.

The knot is relatively simple to tie, and has an infinite number of uses other than hanging someone.

To be a true hangmans noose I have always thought the knot had to contain 13 turns of the rope. But, doing an internet search to verify that proved futile. I only found one site out of about 20 that referenced turns of rope, and they said 9 to 13 were required.

I have practiced tying knots, but my memory is such that unless I do it several times daily every day I cannot remember the steps. Hopefully your memory is better than mine.

This is absolutely stunning.


If you want to know who this female person is, go here. 

I have problems expressing myself at the best of times. But what this lady said has me scratching my head and shaking my butt trying to figure out how to say what I want to say.

They always say follow the science. Obviously not here.

I mean, this is absolutely ridiculous.

Here is the you tube video that excerpt came from: 

This man knows everyone who is famous #lol #joke

Ministry of Truth has been put on hold for now. Plus my whine for today.

 DHS pauses disinformation board; director will resign

The article says the board is not completely gone, but some other board will review this board, and then I guess decide the fate of it.

Looks to me like whoever first called this the Ministry of Truth struck a nerve with these arrogant assholes.

Jeez louise I get tired of this political crap. But damn, if you don't pay attention to it these people will just keep overrunning you and the ones we love.

And voting. We can't vote our way out of this. My primary for selecting the candidates is june 7th I think. I told my wife I'm not gonna vote. She asked me why, and I told her there was no one on the ballot I can vote for. 

To me everyone is democrat or democrat lite. We don't have a Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis on the ballot out here. We have people who say whatever they think you want to hear.

My congressional district has been redrawn so I no longer have asshole jim costa. But now I am getting inundated with political mailings about vote for me. I had one guy come by and he sure talked a good game. But I don't know him from adam so why would I vote for him?

There goes my retirement.

 Dow drops 1,100 points for its biggest decline since 2020 as the sell-off this year on Wall Street intensifies

If this decline continues, what is left in my retirement fund will not last until I die.

Well, shit.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the time is NOW to stock up and prepare.

 Report, JP Morgan Predicts National Average Gasoline Prices Over $6 Gallon by August

Ladies and gentlemen, lend me your ears.

If you do not have 6 months to a  year of food and related necessities stored at your home, you goddamn well better go out and get a loan of money if necessary, but get your ass to the damn store now!!

The democrat assholes are succeeding in wrecking this country and all of us are going to suffer for it. 

The price of gasoline hits 6 bucks what do you think the price of diesel will be? And based on some stuff I have seen on the net, will there even be any diesel to buy?

How many truckers are going to be able to fill their tanks and drive to deliver to us the food we need to live? 

How much will that food cost after a truck delivers it? How much of that food will sit in trucks waiting to be delivered by a trucker who can't afford the fuel??

I said 6 months to a year, but even that may not be enough. We got 3 more years of this shit to go thru with dementia joe and  babblin kammy. They are doing great at screwing this country in the first 16 months, they may finish the job in the next 3 years. 


Good Morning


Holy crap gas is going up quick.

 The lovely Mrs. and I were down in fresno today.  On the way back home I was looking at gas prices at the various stations. 

For 87 octane, cash price, here are some of the prices we saw.

Sinclair    5.49 gallon

Valero      5.79 gallo.

Shell        6.15 gallon

Chevron   6.69 gallon

There is a 1.20 per gallon difference there.

For 14 gallons thats a difference of 16.80. Who in their right mind would go to chevron for that price?

Listening to the radio, the average gas price here in california is 6.02 per gallon. I believe that is the first time in history for that. 

Stupid joe and the ho.

Now is the time for you to consider what your energy needs are.

 The U.S. power grid is strained as-is, with disruption and outages becoming more frequent in many regions.

Do you know what your energy requirements at home are? If not, now is the time to look into that.

The fed gov is trying harder and harder to push people into using "renewable" electricity rather than fossil fuel or nuke. Because of that our nations energy grid is aging into disrepair and needs replacement in some areas. 

Supplying yourself with electricity is not very easy. But it can be done. Think to yourself what you would do if you have an extended energy blackout for some reason. Hurricane, tornado, earthquake, terrorist event or a grid operator just pissed because he didn't get the day off he wanted and decided to cause a problem.

Now is the time to do this for your family, Before you need to do this for your family.


Did you Texans survive the weekend okay?

 Texas Grid Operator Tells Residents to Conserve Energy After Six Generators Fail Amid Sweltering Temps

I am wondering what is going on in my home state of Texas. You would think after the problems during the winter of 21 that the energy grid would be all better by now.

How in the hell do six generators fail at the same time? 

Answer: Sabotage. In my opinion.

You've got a blue million illegal aliens coming into this country, and about 99 percent of those hate our guts. What could possibly go wrong?

Some foreign asshole who wears rags on his head could be sending infiltrators. Get a job in the software they say. Cause some mayhem they say. Looks like some of them may have landed jobs at the energy producers.

Twenty-Five Dollar Haircut

A balding man went into a barber’s shop and asked how much it would be for a haircut.
“Twenty-five dollars,” said the barber.
“Twenty-five dollars, that’s crazy!” exclaimed the man. “I’ve hardly got any hair. How can it be that expensive?”
The barber explained, “It’s $5 for the actual cut and $20 for the search fee.”

NEW CRISIS That Will Affect EVERYONE In 1 to 2 WEEKS | Prep Now | Shtf

Have any of you heard about a looming shortage of diesel? This is news to me.

A shortage of diesel will be a pretty bad thing. The guy in the video says Love's and Pilots had  a prediction about 25% of their stores would be bone dry.

I don't know if this is an actual thing coming up, but I sure hope not.

Rotating My Gasoline Cans

 The last few weeks I have been doing a lot more driving than normal. Thus, I have occasion to rotate out my supply of gasoline I have stored.

I have seven 5 gallon cans I keep full. I add a product called Stabil which keeps the gas usable for a long time. I add 3 ounces per 5 gallons. 

I have another product I bought years ago that has enzymes in it to do the same job as stabil. But I have always been reluctant to use it.

The first can I rotated out was from sometime in 2019. I added that to my truck and then filled it up and had no problems with it at all. 

I have one more can to go, which is dated November of 2021. Then I will relax until about this time next year and start over again.

That is assuming I am still around next year. The way things are going around here I may take a drive to the Rockies and jump off a cliff.

Do I Have Enough Paper?
