The Police Were Called for a Social Distancing Mannequin

 The whole fucking world is crazy. A restaurant had a mannequin sitting at a table. Who know why, who cares why. 

What is important is the fact that someone called the goddamn fckin police on the guy! Because they thought he was allowing dine in!!

Presidency, 2024

 Who do you think will be the republicrat nominee for the presidency in 2024?

I predict it will not be our glorious number 45, President Trump. The establishment is turning on him faster than milk in 90° sun. Ole lindsey graham is apparently pushing tim scott for prez.  Cocaine mitch and asshole mike pence don't support him.

Local talk radio today had this subject on. I listened for about 5 minutes, then started hunting for unicorn farts to listen to.

They were saying ole mike pence didn't have the balls to run if Pres. Trump does. I think they are wrong. I think ole pence is planning on it.

Then they were floating Ron DeSantis as a running mate for Pres. Trump. I could probably go along with that. 

But. I think Pres. Trump will better serve himself, his family, and his constituents if he does not run, but instead does his rallys like he does and supports Ron DeSantis for prez. 

I personally won't vote for prez unless Trump or DeSantis is the nominee. All the rest are establishment republicans.

Electrical Work

 Went to my daughters place today to do some electrical troubleshooting.  A plug in the kitchen wasn't working, and a whole string of plugs i installed in 1981 or so wasn't working.

Checked the plug in the kitchen and had about 96 volts on it. Should be 110 or so.

Went to remove the thing to check the connections, and the screws holding it in place were about 2 inches long. Damn those things were long. Anyway, finally got them out and got the plug out and the wire had broken at the screw. What really surprised me though, was the wire is not solid, it is stranded wire. I haven't seen that before. So tomorrow i am going back, hopefully to replace the socket with a ground fault interruptor circuit style socket. This is only a 2 wire system, but i think i can still make it work okay.

The string of plugs that was out is a different story. Those only had about 750 millivolts to the outlet. Went out to the breaker, and even though the breaker is correctly on, it only had about 750 millivolts at the breaker. Reset the breaker and now it has 120 volts as it should. 

So i purchased a new breaker for that. Install it tomorrow. And hopefully everything electrical wise will be okay.

Went over how the electrical panel is setup with my son in law. He is a great guy, but his eyes started glazing over as i explained the intricacies of the panel. I know exactly how he feels, i did the very same thing, at this very same electrical panel, when MY father in law was explaining the intricacies of the electric panel to me.

The circle of life has come around.

Government Need to Stay Out of Our Lives

 The people who say they know better than us want to ban menthol in cigarettes and cigars.

Why is that? Apparently because it is racist and black people can't figure out for themselves if it's good or bad for them.

You know what? The damn Gubbmint is okay with people shoving another person of the same sex genitalia up their ass, why can't they let people shove a cigarette into their mouth if that's what they want to do?

FDA Wants To Ban Menthol Cigarettes And Flavored Cigars…

Chicken Gun

Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity. The idea was to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers.

When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow..
The horrified engineers sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.
Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:
Defrost the chicken..

People Everywhere are Tired of This Mask Bullshit

 Vail AZ. parents got pissed off whent the school board voted to extend mask mandate. So a bunch of them pushed their way into the meeting, the school board took off like a scared rabbit, the parents then held their own meeting and elected a whole new school board and rescinded the mandate.

Looks like the election was illegitimate though. Link below.

A Shortage of Cars? I Don't Think So, Tim.

This Article talks about how there is a shortage of new cars due to the slowdown of manufacture caused by The Covid. I'm not sure i believe that. Every new car lot i drive by here locally is chock full to overflowing. Or at least that is how it appears to me.

It also says there is a shortage of used cars.

I call bullshit on that. Recently i was helping my grandson look for a used vehicle. We finally settled on a 1998 ford expedition with high miles for $3500.  And that was a good buy.

Prices of used cars have risen, apparently caused by the Covid hysteria. I frankly couldn't believe the high prices people wanted for used trucks. Holy hell, trucks of 1988 vintage were priced up around 10 grand.

I am of the opinion that we could cease manufacture of all new vehicles, and this country would have enough cars to last about 300 years. Might not be new, but they could still be driveable.

Hell, look at cuba. Isn't that what they do with their vehicles? Repair them until they can't be repaired anymore, and then repair them again.

Water

 I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in california water is an all consuming item of interest.

With our constant drought and the large population we have, water has become our number one problem, at least in my opinion. 

The farmers in our state pay somebody for surface water allotments, but they haven't received those allotments in years. I think this year they only get about 5%?? or so of their allotments.

Then enter Nestle. They have a right to several million gallons of water that they bottle and resell to us. But now they have been sent a cease and desist letter because they are taking several hundred percent more water than allowed.

Sam Meets Leon

 Sam has been in the computer business for 25 years and is finally sick of the stress. He quits his job and buys 50 acres of land in Minnesota as far from humanity as possible. Sam sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise, it's total peace and quiet. After six months or so of almost total isolation, he's just finishing dinner when someone knocks on his door. He opens it and there is a big, bearded man standing there.


"Name's Leon... Your neighbor from four miles away... Having a party Saturday... thought you'd like to come."

"Great," says Sam. "After six months out here I'm ready to meet some local folks.

Thank you." As Leon is leaving he stops, "Gotta warn you there's gonna be some drinkin'."

"Not a problem... after 25 years in the computer business, I can drink with the best of 'em."

Again, as he starts to leave Leon stops. "More 'n' likely gonna be some fightin'too."

Sam says, "Well, I get along with people. I'll be there. Thanks again."

Once again Leon turns from the door. "I've seen some wild sex at these parties, too."

"Now that's not a problem," says Sam, "I've been all alone for six months! I'll definitely be there...by the way, what should I wear?"

Leon stops in the door again and says, "Whatever you want, just gonna be the two of us."

Democrat Logic

 


A dimocrat buys a ticket and wins the lottery. He goes to Austin to claim it where the man verifies his ticket number.

The dimocrat says, "I want my $20 million."

To which the man replied, "No, sir. It doesn't work that way. We give you a million today, and then you'll get the rest spread out for the next 19 years."

The dimocrat said, "Oh, no. I want all my money RIGHT now! I won it, and I want it."

Again the man patiently explains that he would only get a million that day and the rest during the next 19 years.

The dimocrat, furious with the man, screams out, "Look, I WANT MY MONEY!! If you're not going to give me my $20 million right now, THEN I WANT MY DOLLAR BACK!''

When i do a duckduckgo search it comes up 5,280 feet in one mile, and i go, HUH?

Because i remember a mile as being 5,276 feet. But in doing another duckduckgo search i find people who say they were taught that a mile is 5,286 feet.  I don't remember that number.

So, for my curiositys sake, how many feet do you say are in a mile?

Thank you.

Buying a Car

 Apparently Some Car Dealers Think It's OK To Detain Customers Against Their Will

Approximately 40 years ago my wife and I and our young daughter were out one night looking at used cars.

We were at a local dealer and stupidly i had given them the keys to my car for evaluation for trade in.

Anyway, i wound up surrounded by 10 salesman(that's not an exaggeration) in the parking lot about 9:30 at night trying to get my keys back from this sonofabitch asshole car guy. He refused to give my keys back, and every time i would approach him these 10 guys kept getting closer and closer to me. It was quite the standoff.

Finally i told him to give my keys back or i would call the cops. And he said so you didn't intend on buying a car when you came in here? And i yelled at him, NO! give my keys back! 

Finally got them back and left. Man, i detest car dealers.

Water De-Salination

Water is the life blood of humans. Without it we can't live.

Fresh water is in very short supply, at least here in california.

A process called de-salination is starting to be used more to make fresh water from ocean water.

Primarily this involves taking ocean water and pumping it through membranes to remove the salinity and all of the minerals that may be in it. Lots of electricity is required to run the pumps that do this.

Here is a link to an article about this:

As Water Scarcity Increases, Desalination Plants Are on the Rise

The Trials and Tribulations of Buying a Car

 Around a month ago, my grandson was in what we thought was a minor fender bender. He was turning left. The lady on the other side of the street was turning right. 

My grandson turned left and stayed in his lane. The lady turning right did not stay in her lane, she turned into my grandsons lane. His right front fender connected with her left rear fender. Spun her right around. 

After, he drove to work but his right front tire was rubbing the bumper. He had it towed to a repair shop. Insurance found him not at fault.

The repair of his car was more than the value of the car, so they gave him a check for 4 grand, and kept the car.

He is borrowing my truck to get back and forth to work, griping all the while because he doesn't like borrowing a vehicle. And i tell him to return my truck and let insurance rent him one. He shuts up.

We have been searching for a 2000 to 2003 vehicle that doesn't have a metric crapton of miles on it. Jesus H Christ, you would think these vehicles are made out of gold. Trucks with 300,000 miles are going for up to 10 grand! Holy Crap! And some of these trucks were made in 1988.

Cue up yesterday. (Here in california we have a smog program. Cars that are bought and sold have to pass a smog test before the state of california will grant you leave to pay the exorbitant registration theft package so you can drive your vehicle on the roadways. No smog certificate, no registration.)

My grandson finds a 2000 dodge ram 1500, with only 150K miles. Goes to look  at it, it is dirty as hell, has a busted up left rear panel.

Runs and drives okay, so he tells the guy he will take it if it has passed smog. Guy says it has passed smog and he has found the paper certificate. 

This morning he comes gets me so i can drive my truck home after he buys the ram. Get to the guys house, start to do the title transfer, and i ask the guy if i can see the smog certificate. He says no, it hasn't been smogged yet. My grandson stops counting out the money and tells the guy, You told me it passed smog already. The guy comes out with a 12 inch piece of exhaust pipe and says i thought you would just put this on and go get it smogged yourself! Really? WTF?? You actually trying to pull this crap?

Cue up frustration on both our parts, we leave, and start searching used car lots on the way to my house. No joy there. Start searching craigslist and facebook marketplace. Find a few here and there. Then we found a 98 ford expedition with 200k miles for 3500. Pictures show an extremely clean vehicle. Grandson texts back and forth with the kid, who is helping his parents sell it, arrange a time to go see it. They are a 1 hour drive from us.

Drive down, look at it, very clean drives well, some details that need to be sorted out, but nothing major. Talking to the lady that owns it and ask about smog. Oh yes, it has been smogged, but will need to be smogged again when registration is due in nov. Ok, not fun, but it has been smogged, we will take the vehicle.

Her husband is there, very nice guy, we hit it off great. Grandson is counting out the money, husband says, So. You Guys Are Going to Smog It Yourself, Right?

What? You said it was smogged? Yes, back in Nov. Here in calif. the smog has to be within 90 days before registration or you can't register it. Well fuck me runnin! You said it was smogged! Stop the money count for the 2nd time today! Arrangements are made, they will smog it tomorrow, will try for the 3rd time to Git Er Done!

An Old Joke But a Good One

 A woman in a hot air balloon realizes she is lost. She lowers her altitude and spots a man fishing from a boat below. She shouts to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."


The man consults his portable GPS and replies, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolls her eyes and says, "You must be a Republican!"

"I am," replies the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answers the balloonist, "everything you tell me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you're not much help to me."

The man smiles and responds, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am, replies the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault."

I Knew He Would Be Convicted by the Media

BREAKING: Jury Finds Derek Chauvin Guilty

I believe chauvin was probably guilty of something. What the correct charge would be i do not know. 

First degree murder? Not by a long shot. 

Second degree murder? Nope, i don't think so.

After that i don't know where the charges go, but i think he was definitely guilty of something.

But.

I believe he was wrongly convicted in this case, and should have been set free, never to see the inside of a courtroom on this deal ever again.

He was wrongly convicted by maxine waters, black lives matter, shortbus joe biden, kneepads harris, the media in general and democrats everywhere.

He was convicted because RACIST!!! Pure and simple, he was convicted because everybody, the media jurors prosecutors defense judge governor president were afraid of BLACK PEOPLE TEMPER TANTRUMS.

Maybe the riots tonight will be just little bitty affairs.

I Am Confused

 Young white people, expecially females, confuse me. At one blog i saw a video where black people are cussing out white people, saying that they are a guest in blackspace and the white people stand there and take it.

Another video i watched shows a young white girl telling a black officer and a white officer how racist white people are. And that systemic racism is a white only thing.

??? I mean, it is obvious black people hate white people. But yet, white people still believe black people love them if they are antiwhite.

I just don't get it.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
GENERAL COSGROVE:
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.
GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?


The broadcast went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, the interview was over.

Belt Sander Races----Looks Like Fun

Motorcycle vs Squirrel of Death

 

motorcycle vs squirrel

I had been banging around the roads of east Texas on my motorcycle and as I headed back into Dallas, found myself in very heavy, high-speed traffic on the freeways. Normally, this is not a problem, I commute in these conditions daily, but suddenly I was nearly run down by a cage that decided it needed my lane more than I did. This is not normally a big deal either, as it happens around here often, but usually I can accurately predict which drivers are not paying attention and avoid them before we are even close. This one I missed seeing until it was nearly too late, and as I took evasive action I nearly broadsided another car that I was not even aware was there!

Two bad decisions and insufficient situational awareness…all within seconds.. Time to get off the freeway.

I hit the next exit, and as I was in an area I knew pretty well, headed through a few big residential neighborhoods as a new route home. As I turned onto the nearly empty streets I opened the visor on my full-face helmet to help get some air. I figured some slow riding through the quiet surface streets would give me time to relax, think, and regain that “edge” so frequently required when riding.

Little did I suspect…

As I passed an oncoming car, a brown furry missile shot out from under it and tumbled to a stop immediately in front of me. It was a squirrel, and must have been trying to run across the road when it encountered the car. I really was not going very fast, but there was no time to brake or avoid it - it was that close.

I hate to run over animals…and I really hate it on a motorcycle, but a squirrel should pose no danger to me. I barely had time to brace for the impact.

Animal lovers, never fear. Squirrels can take care of themselves!

Inches before impact, the squirrel flipped to his feet. He was standing on his hind legs and facing the oncoming Valkyrie with steadfast resolve in his little beady eyes. His mouth opened, and at the last possible second, he screamed and leapt! I am pretty sure the scream was squirrel for, “Banzai!” or maybe, “Die you gravy-sucking, heathen scum!” as the leap was spectacular and he flew over the windshield and impacted me squarely in the chest.

Instantly he set upon me. If I did not know better I would have sworn he brought twenty of his little buddies along for the attack. Snarling, hissing, and tearing at my clothes, he was a frenzy of activity. As I was dressed only in a light t-shirt, summer riding gloves, and jeans this was a bit of a cause for concern. This furry little tornado was doing some damage!

Picture a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a t-shirt, and leather gloves puttering maybe 25mph down a quiet residential street…and in the fight of his life with a squirrel. And losing.

I grabbed for him with my left hand and managed to snag his tail. With all my strength I flung the evil rodent off the left of the bike, almost running into the right curb as I recoiled from the throw.

That should have done it. The matter should have ended right there. It really should have. The squirrel could have sailed into one of the pristinely kept yards and gone on about his business, and I could have headed home. No one would have been the wiser.

But this was no ordinary squirrel. This was not even an ordinary pissed-off squirrel.

This was an evil attack squirrel of death!

Somehow he caught my gloved finger with one of his little hands, and with the force of the throw swung around and with a resounding thump and an amazing impact he landed square on my back and resumed his rather anti-social and extremely distracting activities. He also managed to take my left glove with him!

The situation was not improved. Not improved at all. His attacks were continuing, and now I could not reach him.

I was startled to say the least. The combination of the force of the throw, only having one hand (the throttle hand) on the handlebars, and my jerking back unfortunately put a healthy twist through my right hand and into the throttle. A healthy twist on the throttle of a Valkyrie can only have one result. Torque. This is what the Valkyrie is made for, and she is very, very good at it.

The engine roared as the front wheel left the pavement. The squirrel screamed in anger. The Valkyrie screamed in ecstasy. I screamed in…well…I just plain screamed.

Now picture a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a slightly squirrel torn t-shirt, and only one leather glove roaring at maybe 70mph and rapidly accelerating down a quiet residential street…on one wheel and with a demonic squirrel on his back. The man and the squirrel are both screaming bloody murder.

With the sudden acceleration I was forced to put my other hand back on the handlebars and try to get control of the bike. This was leaving the mutant squirrel to his own devices, but I really did not want to crash into somebody’s tree, house, or parked car. Also, I had not yet figured out how to release the throttle…my brain was just simply overloaded. I did manage to mash the back brake, but it had little affect against the massive power of the big cruiser.

About this time the squirrel decided that I was not paying sufficient attention to this very serious battle (maybe he is a Scottish attack squirrel of death), and he came around my neck and got IN my full-face helmet with me. As the faceplate closed partway and he began hissing in my face I am quite sure my screaming changed tone and intensity. It seemed to have little affect on the squirrel however.

The rpm’s on The Dragon maxed out (I was not concerned about shifting at the moment) and her front end started to drop.

Now picture the large man on the huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a very ragged torn t-shirt, and wearing one leather glove, roaring at probably 80mph, still on one wheel, with a large puffy squirrel’s tail sticking out his mostly closed full-face helmet. By now the screams are probably getting a little hoarse.

Finally I got the upper hand…I managed to grab his tail again, pulled him out of my helmet, and slung him to the left as hard as I could. This time it worked…sort-of. Spectacularly sort-of, so to speak.

Picture the scene. You are a cop. You and your partner have pulled off on a quiet residential street and parked with your windows down to do some paperwork.

Suddenly a large man on a huge black and chrome cruiser, dressed in jeans, a torn t-shirt flapping in the breeze, and wearing one leather glove, moving at probably 80mph on one wheel, and screaming bloody murder roars by and with all his strength throws a live squirrel grenade directly into your police car.

I heard screams. They weren’t mine…

I managed to get the big motorcycle under directional control and dropped the front wheel to the ground. I then used maximum braking and skidded to a stop in a cloud of tire smoke at the stop sign at a busy cross street.

I would have returned to fess up (and to get my glove back). I really would have. Really. But for two things. First, the cops did not seem interested or the slightest bit concerned about me at the moment. One of them was on his back in the front yard of the house they had been parked in front of and was rapidly crabbing backwards away from the patrol car. The other was standing in the street and was training a riot shotgun on the police cruiser.

So the cops were not interested in me. They often insist to “let the professionals handle it” anyway. That was one thing. The other? Well, I swear I could see the squirrel, standing in the back window of the patrol car among shredded and flying pieces of foam and upholstery, and shaking his little fist at me. I think he was shooting me the finger…

That is one dangerous squirrel. And now he has a patrol car…

I took a deep breath, turned on my turn-signal, made an easy right turn, and sedately left the neighborhood.

As for my easy and slow drive home? Screw it. Faced with a choice of 80mph cars and inattentive drivers, or the evil, demonic, attack squirrel of death…I’ll take my chances with the freeway. Every time.

What is the Legitimate Role of Government?

 I tried to write a short article about what i think the legitimate role of government is. But i wound up erasing every thing i wrote because i came off sounding like an incoherent whiny little bitch. Which i am, but i don't want to display that to the world.

So i did a search and found this article by Walter Williams, written in 2000. I have to admit i did not fully read the article, because i have a very short attention span, and cannot concentrate on articles of this nature. But i did scan it and i hope this articulates what i would like to say.

To answer that question we should turn to the rule book they gave us: the United States Constitution. Most of what they considered legitimate functions of the federal government are found in Article I, Section 8 of our Constitution, which says, in part:

Joke

I stole this joke from Grouchy Old Cripple

A man staggered into a hospital with concussion, multiple bruises, two black eyes, and a five iron wrapped tightly around his throat.

Naturally the doctor asked him ‘What happened to you?’

‘Well, I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when, at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a cow pasture.

We went to look for them and while I was looking around I noticed one of the cows had something white at its rear end. I walked over, lifted its tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife’s Monogram on it stuck right in the middle of the cow’s arse. Still holding the cow’s tail up, I yelled to my wife,

‘Hey, this looks like yours!’

‘I don’t remember much after that…’

An Inappropriate Joke

 A man who’d just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit.The female blonde mortician asks the deceased’s wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the blonde mortician a blank check and says, ‘I don’t care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.’The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly…She says to the mortician, ‘Whatever this cost, I’m very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I’m very grateful. How much did you spend?’To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank check.‘There’s no charge,’ she says.‘No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!’ she says.

‘Honestly, ma’am,’ the blonde says, ‘it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband’s size was brought in shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.’‘So, I just switched the heads.’(BET YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING!!!)

Election Manipulation Much??

 "We also found a smoking gun. This is what the Senators’ letter focuses on. We found that for a period of days before the election, on Google’s home page the company was sending a “go-vote” reminder just to liberals. Not a single one went to conservatives. How do we know this?"

A local radio talk show host named Ray Appleton yesterday was haranguing the callers by saying there has been no evidence of any of the election shenanigans claimed by Mike Lindell and others. He is an arrogant asshole. He berated some 90 year old lady about it. And he is a supposed conservative. A great friend of Devin Nunes, a local congress critter.

He kept saying show me some evidence. 

I wonder if this article would be evidence.

Mass surveillance masquerading as public safety in Oklahoma

Rekor uses video doorbells to create neighborhood vehicle surveillance networks 

"As I wrote about last year, Rekor is using video doorbells like Ring to create a 68 million neighborhood vehicle surveillance network."

“Rekor is going to great lengths to turn smart homes into neighborhood vehicle surveillance networks. To entice suburban residents, it’s offering a steep price drop — from the $50 a month it charges businesses and law enforcement agencies to $5 a month, less than the price of a newspaper subscription. Rekor also allows your neighbor to identify a limited number of vehicles for $99, $395 or $1995 a month.”

The Tea Party rebellion started on a lot less than what states like Oklahoma are doing.

This is The Best Reason I Have Ever Heard to Shut Down All Nuclear Reactors on the Planet

 I worked in the naval nuclear power part of the navy in 1970 to 1976. At the time, i thought it was a good way to generate power. Never thought much about the  ramifications of getting rid of the stuff when we are done with it.

Then Chernobyl came along. Didn't think too much of it. Then 3 Mile Island came along, my eyebrows got raised a couple of feet when a guy i knew who was still in the industry explained to me what had happened. Don't ask me now, i don't remember any of it. And then Fukushima happened about 10 years ago.

They always say the 3rd times the charm. This is the 3rd time. Right now Fukushima is set to dump about 1,000,000 tons of treated radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.  That is about a metric shitton of gallons.Can you say bad idea?

We used to do that on the ship, dump about 10,000 gallons or so of radioactive water into the ocean, on a fairly regular basis. What do you suppose all that does to the life in the ocean? And now about 1M tons will be discharged. 

I say it is time to shut down all nuclear reactors on the planet. I guess that makes me a greeniee. I want to Save The Planet!

Cigarettes

 I am not aware if any of my readers here smoke. I have not smoked a cigarette since Dec. 1, 1991, Saturday night, 6:30 pm. Or maybe 6:31 pm.

As young children are wont to do, my youngest daughter decided she didn't want me to die from smoking, so somehow she got up enough money to buy for me a filter kit which was designed to help you stop smoking. I suspect my wife fronted the money, but no proof of that.

Well, crap. I can't disappoint my daughter now can I? So, I start in on the first of the filters. You place your smoke of choice into the filter, which resembled the plastic end of a tiparillo cigar, and away you smoke for a week or so, until you graduate to the next filter up. These filters slowly decrease your intake so that you gradually get weaned off of the nicotine. Those things were nasty if you ever bothered to look at one after use.

If I remember correctly, there were four filters, and by the end of the fourth one, your desire for smoking was supposed to be gone. And by golly, that is what happened for me. I think each filter was 2 weeks, and around the 7th week on that saturday night, i simply stopped.

Today I was in Hanford calif and i was eating a lunch of fritos scoops and frito bean dip with an unsweetened bottle of Pure Leaf black tea, when I observed this sign on the fence in front of me.



I thought that was pretty damn expensive for a pack of cigarettes. Hell, a 2 pack a day habit is $15? You kiddin me? I remember  in the 70's paying $0.50 pack, and being pissed off about the high price. Hell on the ship overseas old packs of camels no filter were $0.05 pack. 
So i went on down the road to my next customer. I am only working about 4 days a month right now. Anyway, after i am done and on the way home i stop in Traver calif to pee and get another drink. At checkout i saw the packs of smokes and I ask the clerk how much marlboros are. That was my smoke of choice. $10.75 pack!!

$21.50 a day for a 2 pack a day habit, which is what i was up to. That is $7,847.50 for the year. Ho Lee Shit!

Gasoline

 Many people, myself included, store gasoline away for future use. I have often asked myself how long i should store this before use. Especially now that i don't drive over 100 miles per day anymore, which helped me rotate my stored gas.

In my perusal of the net today, I ran across this article about storing gasoline, and thought you might find it interesting.

Feds Seize 1,000 Safe Deposit Boxes w/One Warrant - Ep. 7.412---Is the 4th Amendment as Dead as the 1st and 2nd?

The 4th amendment in our bill of rights: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Is the 4th amendment to our constitution dead? Seems like everyday you hear about no knock warrantless entries, people getting their cellphones searched without warrants. And now this video i saw on youtube about 1000 or so safedeposit boxes getting seized. How can our government do this legally?? What happened to particularly describe?
