Jesus Christ but democrats have such delusions

 I got a question. Who the hell has the right to make decisions about what children are being taught in school? 

Obviously the parents do. Am I right?

But democrats, one democrat in particular named Terry McAuliffe a candidate for virginia governor, says parents should not tell schools what to teach. 

I mean jesus christ the ?????skankiness??? of this guy! I can't think of the word I want to say, but this guy is nothing but pure asshole.

"I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach," McAuliffe, who previously served as governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018, said during the debate in Alexandria, Virginia.


Dictaters Gonna Dicktate

And to all the other health care workers who are vaccinated, they also deserve to know that the people they’re working with will not get them sick.” 

Looks like new york is firing unvaccinated health workers and replacing with national guard???

Question: If the vaccine works why are you afraid of unvaccinated people? Aren't you immune now?

If the vaccine doesn't work why are you injecting yourself with it? And why are you forcing others to be injected?

This Plandemic is not an Epidemic. Thousands of people are NOT dying in the streets no matter what media tells you. The numbers of people sick are inflated by, in my opinion, probably greater than 1000%. How do I know this? I haven't done any research, I don't need to. I know how these people think. I know they have to have control and power and are willing to lie cheat and steal to get it and if they have to kill you to get, well so be it. Screw you and your freedom.

Firewood

Firewood BTU Ratings Charts for Common Tree Species 

A friend of mine and his wife, Jorge and Karina, delivered a cord of wood to me today. I didn't really need it, but I decided what the heck.

I have the money now, and the way our government is going they might shut my social security off if I refuse the jab. Which my wife and I have both refused.

So, that brings me up to about 3 cords or so of wood, and with the mild winter I am expecting, I doubt if  we burn much over a cord this year.



It is almond wood. I have tried other woods in the past, and I have decided I prefer the almond wood. I paid $250 delivered and stacked, which is about the going price around here. 

Plus, I get to help a friend out, and visit with them for a while. All in all I thought it was worth it. 

That rubbermaid shed in the background, on the other hand, was not worth the money I paid for it. The entire shed has lasted okay, but the doors started coming off the second year I had it.





Our Descent Quickens

 Our slide into 3rd world status recently has accelerated. And this article with video attached shows part of it.

Now don't get me wrong, it is about time our side started yelling back at these assholes. And I would have loved to see them start throwing punches. In order to get better, punches on the floor of congress need to be thrown.

But I would love to see a return to some semblance of civility mixed with compromise.

A Good Joke

Got a good joke in the email. I thought I would share it:

An elderly gentleman was giving a newlywed some advice.

"We have been married for seventy-four years and we never fight" he informed the young man.

"The key is to take your bride to a romantic location on your landmark honeymoons. In fact, I took the Mrs to Paris for our fiftieth anniversary."

His curiosity pricked, the young man asked "What are you going to do for your seventy-fifth anniversary?"

"Well, I am considering going back and getting her."

Grocery Prices Today

 My wife and I dropped in to the local State Foods grocery store, which we lovingly call the High Dollar Store.

She wanted to get some green beans, and I decided to click a few pics.

I can get food cheaper at other places, but I have to drive a minimum of ten miles in either direction to get there. My wifes foot is still problematic after breaking her big toe last friday. She tripped on a cord I had strung out from the garage to outside so I could use a drill motor.

We have a fridge and a freezer out there and she was accessing the fridge, and didn't lift over the cord well enough.

The color of her toe and foot was kind of a mixture of black, blue and purple. Ugly color.

I somehow deleted a pic of a loaf of Oroweat 100% whole wheat bread at $5.39 loaf. And on a display on the way out of the store was scotts paper towels. They were the choose a size. You know how on the pack it will say 6 rolls equals 12 rolls? This pack said 6 rolls equals 11 rolls. Funny strange.

Anyway, here are the pics.

A Ready Made Army, Just Waiting

 Most were military aged males between the ages of 18-35

Is the biden company willfully stupid or is this intentional?

We have a ready made army sitting at the border. And maybe 2 or 3 more armies already inside the US. 

The mexican cartels are right there, they have enough weapons to arm all of these military age males. All of the weapons are probably from obama and black attorney general whose name escapes me at the moment. 

And biden and harris go to football games and the beach.

Sunday Morning Jokes

Joe Biden buys a lottery ticket and wins the lottery. He goes to D.C. to claim it where the man verifies his ticket number.

Joe 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."

Joe says "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.

Joe, 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!''


Two generals were given a special test to meet their admission requirements to the pentagon. Soon after the test began the first general turns to the second general and asks, "Old MacDonald had a what?"

The other replies, "He had a farm."

The first asks, "How do you spell it?"

To which the second replied, "E-I-E-I-O."


Two rednecks met in a bar and decided that they weren't going anywhere in life so thought they should go to college to get ahead. They hop in a pickup and drive to the nearest college. While the second one waits out in the hall, the first goes in to one of the rooms and finds a professor who advises him to take Math, History, and Logic. 'What's Logic?' asked the first redneck.

The professor replied, 'Let me give you an example: Do you own a weedeater?' 'I sure do,' grinned the redneck. 'Then I can assume, using logic, that you have a yard,' replied the professor. 'That's real good,' the redneck responded in awe. The professor continued: 'Logic will also tell me that since you have a yard, you also have a house.' Impressed, the redneck shouts 'AMAZIN'!' 'And since you own a house, logic dictates that you have a wife.' 'Betty Mae... this is incredible!' (The redneck is catching on.) Finally, since you have a wife, logically I can assume that you are heterosexual,' says the professor. 'You're absolutely right! Why that's the most fascinatin' thing I ever heard of. I cain't wait to take this here logic class.'

The first redneck, grinning ear to ear with pride at the new world opening up to him, walked back into the hallway where his friend is waiting. 'So what classes are ya takin'?' The friend asked. 'Math, History, and Logic,' replies the first redneck. 'What in tarnation is Logic?' asked his new friend. 'Let me give you an example. Do ya own a weedeater?' 'No,' his friend replied. You're queer, ain't ya?

China Could Take Us Over With an EMP

EMP Attack: What Would Actually Happen? 

Do you think one of the large nations are orchestrating all the bullshit going on in our world?

Here in the (former)united states we have lockdowns, divisiveness, animosity, hatred, bitterness. No one wants to compromise with anyone else. Therefore, no unity.

China wants to dominate us. Seems to me now would be a good time for china to detonate an emp over the continental (former)united states.  Hell, with maobiden in charge they may have one up there right now just waiting on what they consider the right moment. 

If they did that, with our weak military and weak command structure we have,  they could run right over us in a matter of weeks. Even with a gun behind every blade of grass. 

For all those guns to be effective, there has to be some leadership. And right now we don't have it.

And if they have been coordinating all the refugees coming up and have a plan to get them some weapons, they have a readymade army sitting right here already in our country.

Think about that for a second. If china were to have a metric crap ton of special forces types in mexico coordinating with the terrorists coming in, what better way to bring a country down?

Something to think about.

Asshole newsom is still the governor

 Asshole newsom wins

"We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines. We said yes to ending this pandemic," Newsom told reporters early Wednesday morning. "We said yes to people's right to vote without fear of fake fraud and voter suppression. We said yes to women's fundamental constitutional right to decide for herself what she does with her body, her faith, her future. We said yes to diversity."

Uh, no, you did not. You did not one single time address those issues. You didn't address the fires you caused, you didn't address the rolling blackouts your kind has caused.

You didn't address your hypocrisy about mask wearing and social distancing when you spent a few grand at your private restaurant soiree.

What you did was play to people that hate President Trump. You didn't play to anyones like of you, no one does. The reason people voted not to recall you is because they don't like President Trump. If you hadn't invoked him, the results would be much closer.

The mail in voting didn't hurt you either. Post office workers found with several hundred ballots not delivered didn't hurt you either. The fact that republican voters were told they had already voted didn't hurt you either.  

The only thing you said yes to was more tyranny. That's why I call you asshole. You asshole.

It's only fair don't ya know. Maybe we should get some BLM types dressed up in weird outfits to do us a rain dance or something.

This summer here locally, we have apparently had 64 days of over 100°F. I cannot confirm that number, but that is what a neighbor told me. And I believe it, we have been hotter than hell this summer, and no rain, except for a 3 minute downpour last wednesday.

 

Assassins


Two assassins are hired to kill a dictator in South America. They follow his every move for months, and find out that every day at noon he goes outside and does his stretching exercises.

So the assassins set up shop right across the street, get all of their sights set, load the guns, and have everything ready to go.

Noon comes, no dictator... 10 minutes longer... no dictator.

One assassin turns to the other and says, "Gee, I hope nothing happened to him."



Federal Agencies 
 Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire a private investigator - Alan Pinkerton - for protection. And that was the beginning of the Secret Service. Since that time, federal police authority has grown in depth, scope, and to a large number of multi-letter agencies - CID, OSI, NIS, FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, etc. Now we have the "Federal Air Transportation Airport Security Service." Can't you see them now, these highly trained men and women in their black outfits with their initials in large white letters across their backs: "FATASS" - I feel safer already, don't you?

A Recycled Joke, But a Goodie

 

Bronze Sculpture of a Rat


A tourist wanders into a back-alley antique shop somewhere in Washington DC. Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is so interesting and unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs. "Twelve dollars for the rat, sir," says the shop owner, "and a thousand dollars more for the story behind it." "You can keep the story, old man," he replies, "but I'll take the rat."

The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store,two live rats emerge from a sewer drain and fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another sewer drain, more rats come out and follow him. By the time he's walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels, and people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster, and soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant lots, and abandoned cars.

Rats by the thousands are at his heels, and as he sees the waterfront at the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run full tilt. No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the water's edge a trail of rats twelve city blocks long is behind him.

Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a light post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into the Potomac Tidal Basin with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging to the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the breakwater into the Basin, where they drown.

Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop."So, you've come back for the rest of the story," says the owner. "No," says the tourist, "I was wondering if you have a bronze congressman. "

G.W. Bush is an Asshole

Not so with GW Bush. When I voted for him, I thought he would take things the conservative way, but boy was I wrong. And not once did he ever do anything about illegal aliens. Not once.

Why are these assholes exempt from this unconstitutional vaccine mandate?

If this socalled vaccine is so great why do they think they have to order it taken?

If they order it taken why doesn't everyone have to take it??

Congress and staff are exempt. Why? Are they immune from the coof?

USPS workers are exempt. Why? Are they immune from the coof?

Expensive Stuff

 The lovely wife and I went to Target store this morning. Don't hate on me for that.

 At this particular target store everything today was well stocked. I did not see any empty shelves.

What I did see is prices gotta be going up.


I got one bag of dog food, one case of aqua fina bottled water, one pack of those damn pickasize paper towels(they apparently do not sell a full size towel anymore), one pack of toilet paper, and 2 grocery bags of medical stuff, some clothes, general stuff. 

In other words, not one heck of a lot of stuff.

$262.00 for all of that. Holy Smokes.

Up at 3:36 AM Again

 Looks like I am on the wake up damn early part of my week. I usually sleep okay except for getting up nightly 4 or 5 times to go pee.

At least one time weekly I wake up at various times of the morning, today it was 3:36 and simply cannot go back to sleep. So I peruse the internet. 

And bother you guys with my posts. 

Not much going on right now, still blacker than a mother in laws heart outside, no moon that I can see.

Perusing the net I see the same old stuff. Found an article I read about small solar power systems.

This last weekend we lost power for about 4 hours. Actually, about 1500 homes lost power is what the website said. So I got out some extension cords and hooked my big inverter to 2 refrigerators and 1 freezer.  Everything runs good during daylight hours while we have plenty of sunshine, but the battery system won't run all night long.

So I have recently purchased another big inverter and eight more batteries, so I can run 1 refrigerator and 1 freezer on this one, and 1 refrigerator on the bigger one. That way I am hoping the batteries will last all night.

Not to be I am afraid. My daughter and I hooked up the new inverter to the old 10 battery system. When I plugged in the extension cord to the fridge, the whole thing went crazy and wouldn't power up because all of the voltage from the batteries had went to almost nothing. Tried the other fridge and same problem. That is extremely frustrating, these batteries are only 3 years old. 

Got a brand new cord yesterday, after we had all power back of course, and hooked it up and everything ran perfectly. Thought my issue might be resolved, but again, not to be. 

While sitting at my desk the fridge or freezer tried to kick on and the new inverter went crazy again, but finally started up. I plugged the fridge and freezer into the bigger inverter and it was pulling 1,630 watts which is one hell of a lot for the fridge and freezer, so I have to investigate why that is.

So I am thinking my old set of batteries may be bad. Gonna have to get out this week and do some investigating on that. 

My grandson is going to come up this morning, and i will help him install a transmission solenoid pack in his 98 ford expedition. It has been setting a transmission code, P1747. We did some troubleshooting on this, and I believe his computer for the car is bad, but he thinks the solenoid pack is bad. We are  doing it his way, and hopefully that will fix the issue. 

Wherever you folks are at today, enjoy yourselves, hug your wife and kids, sisters brothers and/or goats if you have them. Bring some joy into someone's life by doing stupid shit and making them smile and shake their heads at you. Remember, if joe biden can do it, so can you. 


No Credible Threats? Does This Guy Have ANY Clue What He is Talking About?

 Homeland Security chief says there are no credible 9/11 threats

No credible threats? My ass, I got your credible hangin right here you miserable sonofabitch.

The article says 46,000 afghan refugees here, but only about a dozen are on the watch list. Only a dozen? Isn't that about a dozen too many??

And get this. This sonofabitch isn't concerned about terrorists entering our country, this is what he is concerned with: He said that DHS has seen a shift, where once they may have been more concerned about a foreign terrorist entering the U.S., “now what we consider the most serious terrorism-related threat on our homeland, which is the domestic violent extremist.”

So let's not mention the hundreds of thousands of unvetted migrants who have come over the border from Mexico. None of whom have been checked for covid and all of them flown to red states to infect the population to prove redstates bad for not wearing masks and not getting vaccinated.

You know, I have said before I could bring this country to its knees in the space of one day, possibly might take two days. But no longer. All it would take is about 50 crazy ragheads with will to kill infidels, about 50 good used AK47's, and about 25,000 rounds of 7.62 x39, about 500 per raghead.  And all of them willing to die, be a martyr, see 74 virgins. Send them all on the same day, same time, same bat plan. Send them to small towns of 10,000 or less, find a local shopping center, mcdonalds, grocery store, wal mart what have you. Have everyone of them start in at noon PST and start killing people. 

By the time it is all said and done, every road, bridge, highway, train plane and automobile would be shutdown. For a very long time. 

And, you know, a dozen on the terrorist watch list would be plenty to accomplish this also. 

Are Prices Going up Dramatically Before Christmas? Get Your Food Stuffs Now.

 I hope I am just being a chicken little crying the sky is falling and nothing will happen. But a few bloggers I visit daily appear to be of the same mind as I am. 

I think prices for just about everything is going to rise soon. I have noticed both INflation and SHRINKflation here locally. 

Due to the covid coof and lockdowns and just plain lazy people, our supply chain is slowly tightening. Quite a few places appear to be getting slow delivery of their orders. A part I have had on order since June 1 has been getting delayed. Last projection is I will have it on 20 Sept. 

Which this year will be my 46th wedding anniversary. Damn time flies don't it?

Have Some Jokes Instead of Bad News

 There is absolutely so much bad news out that it is difficult to pick a crisis to talk about.

So piss on it, have a few jokes instead.

Yesterday my spouse was berating me for checking my email all day as I work from home.
"You know," she complained, "I think that work rules your life."
"No dear," I replied, "you rule my life... I just prefer work."


Two men staggered into the pub, dragging their extremely drunk mate with them. When they reached the bar, they let him go and he collapsed in a drunken heap on the floor. "We'll have two beers," one of them slurred to the bartender.
"What about him?" asked the barkeep, pointing to the unconscious chap.
"No more for him - he's driving," his pal replied.

How To Save Money!

Three engineers and three accountants are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single ticket.

"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks an accountant.

"Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.

They all board the train. The accountants take their respective seats but all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "Ticket, please."

The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

The accountants saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all.

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed accountant.

"Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.

When they board the train the three accountants cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby. The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the accountants are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, Ticket, please."

Here locally, I have not noticed a shortage of stuff. But I know nationally things appear to be different. For instance, Whirlpool appears to be having issues filling orders. The ice dispenser I ordered the beginning of June has been shuffled back to Sept. 20, and I expect it to be shuffled back even longer when that day arrives. 

Both Ford and Chevy appear to be stopping production at some places due to lack of computer chips. Maybe some other lack I am not aware of. 

Container ships aren't being unloaded in L.A. and many others are in limbo somewhere around the world.

So maybe now is a good time to purchase, if you can find it in stock, whatever you have been thinking of purchasing but putting off. Or maybe just purchasing little things, like pencils, pens, paper, plastic containers, etc. 

Just in case.

Nopales and Prickly Pear

Have you ever eaten cactus? I have not, but I have been told by several people that nopales and prickly pears are excellent to eat. Frankly, I have never been hungry enough to try them.

However, I have a fence full of the doggone things. So one of these days I will have to give them a go. 

The nopales are the flat leaves. Remove the spines, cube them up, and sautee them like bell peppers. The prickly pear, remove the spines, cut the ends off, peel the skin and eat. Or juice it up I guess.

But notice I said remove the spines. I have to be very careful when I am out by them as I have, on several occasions, backed into them. And I can say without a shadow of a doubt, my shirt is not thick enough to protect me. 

Here are a couple of links about preparing them:

This looks like it is fun as all get out. But as clumsy as I am I would wind up breaking six of my toes and fourteen of my fingers trying to get up off the floor.
