96 years young.

Unlike the current crop of televangelists, Billy Graham has walked the walk that he preaches. Happy Birthday Bro. Graham. Hope for a few more…

Another Huge Government Lie Bubbles To The Surface Of The Swamp

Filed under “No Shit, Sherlock” because We Teh Sheeple had already figured this out. And were told, as always, that we were wrong.  I am so G-D sick of the lying bastards in DC.


HALF A MILLION BORDER JUMPERS SNAGGED SO FAR THIS YEAR

And not even half of them were Mexican. Yet they all snuck in through Mexico, which has a closed, armed, vigilant southern border. Smells a bit, yes??



Staggering statistics that show nearly a half-million people were caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally—and more than half were not Mexican, a number far higher than in 2013—reportedly were posted on a U.S. government website for just a few hours last month before being taken down.

According to the Center for Investigative Reporting, the numbers were posted on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website on Oct. 10 for roughly five hours. The dramatic numbers raised questions over whether they were yanked to protect the administration before key midterm elections.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told the Center he’s worried “they may have been taken down for purely political reasons.”

“If the information is ready it should be made available. The idea that it was and then yanked down for political reasons is outrageous,” he said.

The numbers could have become a political football less than a month before the elections. They emphasize the challenge still facing U.S. border agents—the reported number of apprehensions is larger than the population of major U.S. cities including Atlanta, Miami and New Orleans. The number has dropped from even higher levels a decade ago, but the flow is staying strong, even as a virtual army of border agents numbering close to 20,000 remains posted, to catch them.

Outrageous and dishonest are the watchwords of this regime. As I’m sure you’ve noticed for years now.

My question is, given how porous the border is, and how the border guards have been nearly forced to NOT do their jobs, my question is, how many of these wetback beaner bastards got through? Two million? Five? Ten?

When the fuck can we get out the bayonets and the cattle cars and send this INVADING ARMY the hell home?



But setting that tirade aside for a moment, can you imagine the election results if a) this information hadn’t been hidden, and b) that this national disgrace was actually reported on by the major news networks?

Villagers with torches much??


Oh, and speaking of national disgraces and hidden information, weren’t we supposed to get the full details of that Bergdahl deserter-traitor after the elections? Well, it’s after now, ain’t it?

LITTLEJOHN ON AMERICA AND THE TEA PARTY. A GOOD READ AND SEE THE LINK FOR ALL

I won’t post it all as not all will relate to an American reader.
But the following MUST be posted and I think many perhaps all will find favour in Littlejohn’s take on America and the Tea Party.

I hope you will visit the site at the link. Some interesting photos and video explain much re. the good Brits.
Trust me, they aren’t all like that unwashed looking foul mouthed anti capitalist who also owns a million dollar home in Calif. And why the druggie bastard is ever allowed in our country is beyond my understanding I will never see my country again, as my wife can’t come over even if her health allowed.  So yes. I’m bitter on more than one level.

Read on.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN on the magnificent millions paying silent tribute at the Tower of London - while selfish anarchists bring chaos to the heart of the capital

By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail

Crowds at the Tower have exceeded all expectations and, despite long queues, visitors have behaved with great dignity and decorum. Even though thousands of people file slowly past the moat at any given time, they deliver their tribute silently, becoming almost as integral to the occasion as the poppies themselves.

The huge attendance is also a powerful rebuke to the sneering Guardian newspaper, which contemptuously dismissed this poignant tribute as a ‘Ukip-style’ memorial.  It was a reminder that the vanishing values and traditions I wrote about in my recent book, Littlejohn’s Lost World, are still out there if you care to look.

Britain remains a small ‘c’ conservative nation. Most of us are quietly patriotic, have reverence for those who serve in our armed forces and respect for others, even when we disagree.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for elements of our political class. We are ruled by out-of-touch careerists who hold the opinions of the people who pay their salaries in utter contempt.

The BBC, which is supposed to serve the nation as a whole, delights in giving a megaphone to extremists, Left-wing bigots and pseudo revolutionaries.

Increasingly, it seems we live in two Britains. One, which contains the quiet majority, is solid, self-sufficient, intent on maintaining decent standards and doing the right thing.

The other, which is small but more voluble, is selfish, intolerant, attention-seeking and determined to rip up the old order.

While millions have been paying a silent tribute at the Tower, a rabble of attention-seeking soi-disant anarchists brought chaos to Westminster, a few miles along the Thames.

Demonstrators clashed with riot police, lobbed missiles, daubed graffiti and chanted: ‘One solution, revolution!’

Oh, for heaven’s sake, grow up.

Inevitably, the repulsive Russell Brand, darling of the BBC, turned up at the demo in Trafalgar Square on the latest leg of his rolling book tour. Needless to say, he wasn’t wearing the obligatory Guy Fawkes mask adopted by the protest group, Anonymous. Brand wasn’t looking for anonymity.

Perhaps he was hoping to get arrested, which would add to his street cred and shift a few more copies of his incoherent, semi-literate ‘manifesto’ to gullible students who see him as some kind of messiah.

Don’t forget that this sexually-incontinent ‘anti-capitalist’ hypocrite with a multi-million-dollar home in Hollywood and a history of serious illegal substance abuse was consulted as an ‘expert’ witness by MPs on the Commons Home Affairs Committee looking into the legalisation of drugs.

Also gracing the demo with her presence was that mad old bat Vivienne Westwood, who has amassed a fortune making daft frocks for women with more money than brains.

Observing this country from abroad might lead some to conclude that the likes of Brand and Westwood and their gormless band of acolytes are truly representative of modern Britain.

That would be as false an impression as dismissing all Americans as selfish, gun-toting, God-bothering crazies.

Sometimes that’s the conclusion Hollywood’s limousine liberals and the Left-leaning political class who dominate Washington would prefer you to form. Like our political class, they try to impose their own prejudices and agenda on an unwilling electorate.

Every few years, the voters bite back. When Barack Obama was elected, even many of those on the Right wished him well, as America’s first black President, who could unite the nation. But they have come to realise he’s just another aloof, Leftist elitist with barely disguised disdain for ordinary people.

This week, the U.S. voted in droves for conservative candidates. Republicans reaped the benefit of the revolt and now control both houses of Congress.

But there’s no great love for the Republican leadership, either. They’re seen in Middle America as part of the problem, not the solution. It is why younger politicians such as Florida’s Marco Rubio, Texan Ted Cruz and Kentucky’s Rand Paul are now being talked up as potential presidential candidates.

All are original thinkers who enjoy the support of the Tea Party, the popular grassroots movement which arose in disgust at the antics of the political establishment.

Like Ukip, the Tea Party is caricatured as a bunch of racists hankering for the past.

On a visit to the U.S. a couple of years ago, I went to a Tea Party rally out of curiosity to hear Rubio speak. There were 5,000 people in the audience. They weren’t the mythical, cousin-marrying, cross-burning hillbillies portrayed by the mainstream media both here and in the U.S.

I met lawyers, small businessmen, teachers and stay-at-home mums, all concerned about the impact spendthrift policies pushed by professional politicians was having on their families and their future prosperity.

In Britain, they’d all be Daily Mail readers: the decent type who would once have been the backbone of the Conservative Party.

Afterburner with Bill Whittle: My Top 5 Conservative principles

Bill Whittle hits another one out of the park.  He’s released some unusually good videos lately and this is one of the best.

I’ll add one little change to the wealth ideas though. No matter which economic system you favor, there are only 3 sources for generating, not gathering, wealth.

They are:

1) Mining – extract or gather raw materials.
2) Farming – growing food. (I’ll let someone else decide which category fishing belongs in.)
3) Manufacturing – Adding value by forming or combining raw materials into products of greater value than the raw materials.

Things, like banking and transportation, are parasitic, but necessary functions. They have a symbiotic relationship with the primary sources. As a parasite, the banker or truck driver takes a portion of the wealth being financed or transported. As a necessary symbiot, The finance and transportation are necessary to get the products of the wealth producers to market.

You can generate real wealth just by promoting farming, mining or manufacturing. Anything else gathers wealth to you, but doesn’t actually generate new wealth.

One Million Pounds-Feet




Test firing a reproduction bronze 24 pounder cannon, modeled on the guns found on the famous 1628 sunken Swedish ship Vasa.

A 24 pounder fires an iron ball 5 1/2 inches in diameter. A full charge of 16 pounds of black powder propels the cannon ball out the muzzle of this 9 1/2 foot long gun at 1650 feet per second.

Mass (in grains, of which 7000=1lb) times velocity (fps) times velocity (fps) divided by 450240 = pounds-feet of kinetic energy.

1,015,858.209 lb-ft, to be exact.

Given that the surface area of a hemisphere is 2πr2, a 24lb cannonball has 47.5 square inches of impacting surface to distribute that force. That’s over 21,379 pounds-feet of energy per square inch, which compares quite well with heavy rifles, whose bullets generate about 24,500 lb-ft/in2. But this is 24 pounds, versus 9/10 ounce. Momentum to spare. No wonder the ball blasts right through 2 6 inch thick oak planks without hardly slowing down.

Churning Milk Into Gold

(It’s only a coincidence that Chris just did a cows post as well).

I needed to get a few things to eat, so I took a trip to the local grocery store. I filled the top of my cart - the kiddie seat area - with things on sale, milk, bread, and meat for 3 nights. The bill came to $71. Horry Clap!!!

Toast: The New Luxury Food

We don’t eat a whole lot of butter. And while we prefer the taste of the Plugra brand, or the yummy stuff imported from Ireland, we’re more than willing to get by with Land O Lakes or the store brand stuff. Lucky us, we have a big freezer, so around this time each year I go butter shopping. November is Thanksgiving, and everybody cooks and bakes, and that means this is the time of year when butter really goes on sale. I got 6 lb - our annual supply - last year for $1.50/lb, and froze them all. November is also when Philadelphia cream cheese gets the big discounts, especially if you can find the 6 bar bulk box. ( Don’t ever freeze cream cheese, but that bulk box is good for several decadent cheese cakes).  So I noticed we were just about out of butter, so I figured I’d get a pound, or maybe stock up for next year.

Crivens. And crivens on the half shell!

Store brand butter was ON SALE for $2.99/lb. Save $1 !! Land O Lakes is selling for $6. Holy sheep dip. SIX DOLLARS for one single pound of butter!!

Bread has gone through the roof too. One loaf of one of these multi-grain healthy bread things, it was either Arnold brand or Pepperidge Farms, was $3.99. SAY WHAT?? FOUR BUCKS for a loaf of bread!!

I wasn’t brave enough to look at the Philly. To heck with that. I got my quart of milk - $2 ( wasn’t milk $2.49/gal last year?? ) and got the heck out of Dodge.

Bread and butter. $10.

Like every other Fiat, our fiat money is worthless, rusted out and with a bad electrical system.

My head is spinning.

$6 for a pound of butter. OMG. OMG.

[ From JULY ] Butter Surges to 16-Year High as U.S. Exports Cut Reserve “There’s a shortage of butter,” Jon Spainhour, a broker and partner at Chicago-based Rice Dairy LLC, said in a telephone interview July 3. “This spring, instead of building inventories, we just shipped it out of the country. We’ve hauled a lot of product out of the market.”

Even as rising global milk output signals a slowdown in U.S. exports, tight domestic butter supplies are contributing to higher costs that buyers including Panera Bread Co. expect will last through 2014. Retail-food prices are rising at the fastest pace in three years, fueled by meat, dairy, eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables, government data show.

The spot price of butter has surged 71 percent this year, after yesterday reaching the highest close since September 1998, and butter futures on the CME jumped 58 percent, touching a record $2.50 today before dropping. The Bloomberg Commodity Index of 22 raw materials gained 2.7 percent this year, while the MSCI All-Country World Index of equities rose 6 percent. The Bloomberg Treasury Bond Index gained 3.6 percent.
Export Surge

U.S. butter exports got a boost after a two-year slump in prices that reached a 15-month low in August. Shipments in the first five months of 2014 totaled 38,897 metric tons, up 64 percent from a year earlier, and are on pace to exceed the full-year record of 92,300 tons in 1993, U.S. Department of Agriculture data show. Domestic production through May this year dropped 3.6 percent to 842,127 tons, while demand through April, the most-recent data available, is up 9.9 percent.

Domestic stockpiles that in May 2013 were the highest in 20 years have slumped with a surge in shipments to buyers including Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt and Iran, government data show. Inventories as of June are down 42 percent from a year earlier to 186 million pounds (84,426 tons).
Emerging Markets

Rising incomes in emerging markets are driving demand for dairy products and other higher-cost foods, including meat, and the U.S. has become the world’s second-largest exporter of milk products after New Zealand.

Ah, that explains it. Those wonderful farmers, who are supported decade after decade by taxpayer funded subsidies, price supports, and every other dad-gummed program known to man, are saying Thank You by selling their wares overseas, and we can take a big flying fuck. I see.

But the dairyman isn’t alone. Meat, fish, eggs, fruit are way up too. So is sugar. So is flour. So is everything.

Scary memories

Can’t believe how scary that was. I lost internet AND landline phone for over two hours! Wasn’t a local problem—an area problem at one of ATT’s hubs. Told me over my cellphone “24 hours”. Last time they told me ‘24 hours’ it was three days. They did give me a credit on my bill that time.

I said ‘scary’ because I can’t believe how much I depend on internet now. Not just for news, entertainment, refilling my prescriptions, etc. I do my banking and bill paying online. To think 20 years ago I bought my first decent computer and joined both AOL and CompuServe. Didn’t do any of that online. Didn’t know the difference between a ‘browser’ and a ‘web crawler’. AOL had both then.

Memories, of 14.4K modems…
5 and a quarter inch floppy discs…
That hold 800k…

Hey! think I’m on to a hit song!

Thankfully I’d paid the monthly bills this morning before my VA appointment so they won’t be late.

What are your memories?

The goats were busy!

There’s a reason they are sometimes called ‘moo-slims’

Taliban militants caught having sex with cow in Badakhshan

A group of Taliban militants were captured by local residents in northeastern Badakhshan province while they were having sex with a cow.

The Koran must approve of bestiality. I’ve read a couple of translations and I can’t recall such acts being prohibited. I don’t really recall moo-slims as having anything like our Ten Commandments. Guess they violated the 10th Commandment:

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Didn’t mention cows you say? That comes under

… nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

The officials furhter added that the militants were initially disarmed by villagers and were then beaten.

Deputy provincial governor Gul Mohammad Bidar said they are aware of the incident involving a number of Taliban militants sexually abusing cows.

He said the local residents have launched a demonstration agains the Taliban militants for committing such a shameful act.

No doubt. These are Hindus. Cows are sacred. This is worse than dumping a Koran down the toilet (I’d like to see how to do that! Guess it’s possible if you have an outhouse handy.) Still, it’s gutsy to launch demonstrations against the Taliban.

H/T to Howie at The Jawa Report who got the final word in on this:

I guess all the goats were busy.

That’s tooo baa-a-a-a-d!
