ending the year as we started. seems nothin’ changes but the names. when u can spell them.

Apparently the year will end as it started.
Stupid and moronic and controlled by lawyers who really know better.
They just don’t give a shit. 

In their own way, many of em aren’t any different than Jane Fonda supping with the enemy and having a laff.

Here’s a maddening example.

From the headlines today.

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing “suspect” whose name I can neither spell or pronounce, have asked a judge to delay his trial because they need more time to prepare.  Yeah, like they need to hunt for evidence that the rat bastard who is still a suspect cos even when caught red handed ur innocent till ….. which in this case is bullshit and we all know it is. Anyway, the muzzie pond scum is pleading not guilty to some 30 charges related to the bombing in April of 2013.

And while I’m on the subject.  Articles all read lawyers, as in plural.
No doubt funded by the taxpayers.  Why does the worm need more than one?
Why should he have any?

I guess the folks in Boston can console themselves that at least they won’t have to pay the freight for both killers, as happily one of the brothers died in that police shootout.

Meanwhile back at the ranch.
Americans should be thankful that with whatever problems we have, the USA (so far as anyone knows) is not also plagued by this curse, the border with Mexico aside.

One of our papers report the following.

budget-flight criminals roving Europe on ‘burglary blitzes’

A new breed of travelling criminal gang is exploiting cheap flights and visa-free travel to launch “burglary blitzes” on countries including the UK, according to senior law enforcement officials.

Highly mobile groups of criminals are dodging arrest by flying in and out of European nations on short-term operations, according to the head of the European crime agency Europol. The tactic follows the blueprint of the so-called “Pink Panther” gang, a group of Balkans-based criminals responsible for raids on high-end jewellers in London from the late 1990s.

Senior officers said that groups were increasingly working with community figures already based in Western European nations to plan break-ins and launder the profits. It warned earlier this year that small groups were travelling from Albania to commit crimes across Europe before being rotated with fresh groups to reduce the risks of being caught.

“Old-fashioned crime – burglary and robberies of jewellery stores – are now happening by highly mobile criminal groups operating all round Europe,” Rob Wainwright, the director of Europol told The Independent. “It’s very traditional crime but in the past 95 per cent of housebreakers were committed within half a mile. Now you’re having Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian and Bulgarian gangs and others from across Europe jumping on airlines and knocking off [burglaries] and almost getting back out of the country the next day.

“We have some criminal groups we’ve identified in Europe that are operating literally in every European country over a one or two-year programme, supported by a local infrastructure normally connected with individuals from the expatriate community of that criminal group.”

Scotland Yard said earlier this month that victims of trafficking were being brought over by UK-based gang leaders for weekend crime sprees targeting designer clothes shops in central London. Plane ticket records suggested that the gangs were block-booking seats on budget flights to bring over Eastern Europeans and then sending them back again within a few days.

stuck in the queue

having a small problem with the cable TV. Everything else works fine, but no On Demand. How can I do my binge viewing without my On Demand? I’ve done all their little nonsense steps - unplug the router for a minute, turn off the power for a couple minutes - but to no avail. I have internet, I have telephone, I have all the other parts of the TV, but I have no On Demand!! This is killing me, it’s the end of the world as I know it!!

Good thing I’ve gone from #250 to #187 in just a couple minutes. That means Prijay Vindaloo will be ready to chat at me in maybe half an hour or less!

Oh, the horrible First World problems we suffer, right?

Over Here, Now Over There

Ebola Visits UK



Hey, remember Ebola? Amazing how this horrible disease, in it’s worst outbreak in human history, simply dropped off the radar a couple of months ago, after total news saturation. Poof, gone. As if it never happened.

Well, it’s still with us. And it’s still raging. The death count in Africa is now nearly 7,600 from almost 20,000 reported cases, and several more health care workers have died. Perhaps worse, “somehow” a huge shipment of medical supplies burned up in Guinea.

And now another health care worker has slipped through the safety net. Sort of.

A female healthcare worker who returned to Glasgow from Sierra Leone last night has been confirmed as having Ebola.

The woman, possibly a nurse, returned to Scotland via Casablanca and London Heathrow, arriving into Glasgow Airport on a British Airways flight at around 11.30pm.

The patient - understood to have been working for Save The Children - was admitted to hospital early this morning after feeling unwell and was placed into isolation at 7.50am. She is in a stable condition.

She has been isolated and is receiving treatment in the specialist Brownlee Unit for Infectious Diseases on the Gartnavel Hospital campus, but will be taken to the Royal Free Hospital in London.

Their infectious diseases unit is run by a dedicated team of doctors and laboratory staff and access is restricted to trained medical staff.

Anyone who is at risk through contact with the patient in transit is to be contacted and closely monitored.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has chaired a meeting of the Scottish Government Resilience Committee and has also spoken to Prime Minister David Cameron.

She said: “Our first thoughts at this time must be with the patient diagnosed with Ebola and their friends and family. I wish them a speedy recovery.



Right then. She did the right thing, but the going-home process is such that she took an all-day flight and then a goodly drive AND THEN realized she wasn’t feeling well. Maybe, maybe, maybe they ought to keep them in Africa just a tad longer?

just another day in the world of words no longer in favor

Well, what can you say about this bit of stupidity aside from, what else might we expect from the pc left?

As for the word “daft” which I think is more Brit than American English, it’s a perfect description of anyone not quite nuts but a loon anyway. Or a bad idea. And many women are “sexy” as exemplified by super models and Hollywood leading ladies.  And why is “blonde” a word to be avoided?

And as for “naked females”, good grief.  That’s one of the natural and beautiful wonders of the world. Erm .... um .... depending on whose naked body one is lucky enuff to view. 

Take a look at this.

Modern men rein in the sexist language: Analysis finds terms like sexy or blonde have disappeared from vocabulary when women are referred to

Analysis of 2.5m spoken or written words found terms almost vanished

Demeaning terms like daft and stupid seen a sharp decline in last 20 years

While terms like ‘girly girls’ describing overly feminine qualities has risen

By Mario Ledwith for the Daily Mail

Fewer men are using sexist language to describe women, according to a study of conversational habits.

The analysis of 2.5million spoken or written words found that terms like sexy and blonde have all but vanished from our vocabulary when women are referred to.

Other demeaning terms such as daft and stupid have also seen a sharp decline over the past 20 years, as has the association between females and the word naked.

Research into the UK’s conversations reveals a significant change in social attitudes over the last 20 years.

Rather than describing women by their appearance in a misogynistic manner, new terms such as ‘girly girls’ that describe overly feminine qualities have risen in popularity.

But the findings of the research jar with suggestions from equal rights groups that sexism is becoming a more prevalent issue, fuelled by the internet.

Campaigners suggest that sexist attitudes have become prevalent on social networks and that a new form of sexism is manifesting itself on Britain’s streets.

The Spoken British National Corpus 2014 study analysed 2.5million words of conversation, which it compared to similar studies from the 1990s.

That decade saw the rise of ‘lad culture’, the phenomenon that gave birth to ‘lads mags’ and was embodied by TV sitcoms such as Men Behaving Badly.

Tony McEnery, joint head of the study, said the research showed ‘negative descriptions of women have fallen away since the early 1990s’.

He told the Sunday Times: ‘Women are being described more in their own right and less in terms of their appearance.

McEnery said that the research was particularly insightful into the psyche of the nation as people struggle to hide their true thoughts when speaking.

here for unedited version

In the end .... misogyny and things sexist are for the most part, whatever feminazis of the left want them to be.
I am not saying those two things do not exist.
But I do not think they always exist in the places where the thought and speech police insist they do.

Holiday Survivors

I get most of today off I think. Got a chance to sleep late, and then we can kick back a little and do a bit of laundry and cleaning here. Then it’s time to run over to Allentown Pennsylvania to go to a AHL hockey game. Which means my Saturday cleaning work will get pushed back to Sunday, so Sunday will be pretty busy. And then by Monday it ought to be business as usual once again.

We gave ourselves a nice Christmas present at Fun League last night. Once again we had the bye, playing against ourselves. So instead of carefully throwing just minimum scoring games to win points and temper our averages, we relaxed and just bowled really well. Seriously, the hardest part of bowling is not letting it eat up your head from inside. Everybody threw at least one Deuce (200+ game). I threw a 638 series, bracketing a careless 169 with 2 games in the 230s. Definitely my best series so far this year. We beat our team average by at least 100 pins in each game, so we took all 7 points with ease.

I think all the Christmas goodies have been eaten up at this point, other than the cheese and crackers. We took the sushi, the sea scallops, the wine, the soup, the deserts, the artisan breads, and even another tri-tip steak to my mom’s, where we ate like princes for 2 straight days. I guess we really did buy too much food.

Christmas Repast Repeat

Christmas begins in just a few short minutes here. We got the last Christmas Eve reveler out of here maybe half an hour ago.

I’ve been going all day; breakfast this morning was a free coffee and half a bagel, under the canopy outside the fish market, waiting for them to open, along with a half a hundred others. At 7 o’clock in the morning. We were 2nd in line so we got our stuff and hightailed it. 17 hours later and I’m just about run down.

Everything was a success. The sea scallops with pancetta and avocado were great. The sushi we made was great; tuna, salmon, hamachi sashimi, Inside Out rolls, California rolls, and a roll for each kind of fish.  The cold shrimp plate, awesome. There were clams on the half-shell, yum! And squash! My brother’s recipe for cream of celery soup worked out, but only after I stopped halfway through and got as much carrot out of it as I could. Too overwhelming. After that it was fine. And when we finally got around to making the tri-tip beef, all the “oh God, I’m so full I couldn’t eat a thing” people suddenly had an appetite again. And ... bang, zoom ... the whole big steak was gone, just like that.

But the biggest hit of the night was really the sort-of crab dip. Go figure. They were fighting over who got to take some of the extra home.

Sort-Of Crab Dip

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 c. sour cream
1 very large handful shredded Mozzarella cheese (most of a 6oz package)
A dozen big shakes Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped, or about 1/3 of a medium yellow onion
1 - 1 1/2 c. chopped sealegs, seasticks, crabmeat or shrimp (250gm, or half the package)

Unwrap a dozen sealegs and chop the heck out of them. Mix all ingredients as best as you can by hand with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees, uncovered for 10 minutes. Now everything is warmed up and soft, so mix it properly now with a fork. Back in the oven for another 25-30 minutes, at which point the onion will fade into the background. Serve with crackers or thin slices of bread.
You could EASILY get by just making half this recipe.



I see that Christmas snuck up on me while I was writing this, so I’ll sign off now.


Merry Christmas To All, And To All A Goodnight




And tomorrow we pack up all the extra food and take it to my mom’s, so they can get a fancy holiday meal in too. And presents!

Good For America, So Obama’s Probably Against It

Indian agitator and anti mine protestor Terry Rambler with his pal B.H.O.



Jobs For Everybody, Copper For All, History In The Making

Finally, after trading this land for that land, Arizona mining companies have the go-ahead to extract billions of tons of copper from the bottom of their MILE AND A QUARTER DEEP mine shaft. Billions. Of. Tons.

Of the #1 strategic element needed by the military and by industry. The stuff that’s been in such short supply that peelers have been stealing pipes out of houses and wires off of phone poles. Copper is our lifeblood mineral. And after that other giant mine caved in a year or so ago ... well, this is what we need. We really, really need to get new copper flowing again.

So naturally, some bullshit Indian claims it’s all sacred ground and musn’t be touched. Oh yeah? Well fuck you. It wasn’t sacred shit until you thought you could either make a buck off of it, or stick it to YT.

In Arizona’s Copper Triangle, 1.6 billion tons of copper ore has been trapped beneath 7,000 feet of rock for billions of years and under a pile of paperwork for a few more, but a development last week has finally put the motherlode of precious metal within reach.

Geologists estimate Resolution Mine could supply the country with 25 percent of its copper needs for the next 40 years, for everything from home and building construction, car manufacturing, power connectivity and wind turbines to medical supplies, appliances and money. Resolution Mining Company, a joint project of two of the world’s biggest mining firms, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton, has already spent $1.2 billion to dig a 28-foot-in-diameter shaft some 1.3 miles down, but until just days ago, environmental concerns and the complaints of Native Americans left it uncertain whether the mine would become an engine of Arizona’s economy, or remain merely an impressive hole in the ground.

“Environmentalist extremist groups have done everything they can to kill it,” said Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz. “However, the environmental impact is incredibly minimal. The project has been studied for a decade. Detractors are taking extreme positions that are not based on sound science.”

Read the rest to find out how the Native American greenies want to shut it down. Honestly, screw them. Copper is our #1 vital resource. Period. No planes, no guns, no motorcars without it. Not a single luxury. Like Robinson Caruso, life without copper (and zinc!!) is primitive as can be.

Me? I’m simply amazed that they’ve dug a tunnel nearly 7,000 feet deep. And even more amazed that there’s a cubic mile or more of copper down there, just waiting for them.

Almost 7000 feet isn’t even a record depth, not even for a “base metal mine” like this one. It’s deep, but the Kidd Creek copper mine up in Timmins OT is half a mile deeper. And those gold mines in South Africa can be nearly twice as deep.

They did a good job

Mom looked like … Mom. Just like every time I’d visit. Kept thinking if I call her name she’d wake up.

Mom’s funeral went off without a hitch Sunday. Oldest sister gave a great eulogy. Baby sister’s husband gave even better comments when the Bishop opened the floor to personal remembrances.

As pallbearer I’m glad the funeral home had guys to instruct us. As her oldest (and only) son I was lead pallbearer. Always the pallbearer, never the pall!

Even with eight guys that casket was heavy.

Oldest sis kept asking if I was okay. Guess I wasn’t showing the emotion they expected. I was never as close to Mom as they were. I’m also on anti-depressants. Plus I’d been expecting this so I’d made my peace with Mom quietly during my visits this year.

Been pretty much a recluse for the last few years. I surprised myself at how easy it was to hobnob with old church friends and distant family that I hadn’t seen in decades. Should come out of my shell?

She is the mother of three beautiful children

Still didn’t get to meet them! grin I said as much in my comments at the memorial service. But here’s me and my sisters.

Hey! That wasn’t a laugh line! grin

Here’s a laugh line: Both of my nephews hamming it up!

Waiting For Malcom X

The very essence of the United States relies on the social implications of race in which black bodies are deemed as sub-human with little to no access of the rights that are so called applicable to every American citizen.

The American police forces of today descend from a legacy of slave captives and overseers whose job was to protect the property (enslaved black bodies) of rich, slave owning capitalists.

We must understand that we are not that far removed from this country’s legacy of slavery and that most of our laws are shaped to uphold a system of white supremacy.

...

the fact that black people have not burned this country down is beyond me

...

ya’ll out here waiting for a white messiah, im waiting for Malcolm X to return.

...

I am in riot mode. Fuck this fucking country



Poor, poor put upon miss Khadijah Lynch, a junior in the African and Afro-American Studies Department at Brandeis University.

Right now she is enjoying a bit of the limelight, for her Twitter statement that she could give a shit less that NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were murdered by fellow muslim Ismaaiyl Brinsley.

Here’s a link. There are others. But you might enjoy reading the rest of her hate saturated tweets and twits. And her photo is so   baby phat Aunt Esta  adorable.

Just thought you should know what kind of product comes out of teh African Studies department at even a top ranked college like Brandeis: Black Liberation Theology soaked, anti-capitalist, anti-Semitic, anarchist Marxists. Just like our pResident.

And Miss ‘tude is a student leader! She’s a UDR - doncha love it, the loud mouthed cow is an udder - a spokes-freak, um I mean an Undergraduate Department Representative for the Department of African and Afro-American studies.



Oh, by the way, just so you know ... this poor mistreated sub-human with no access to rights ... this one not far removed from slavery ... is attending a college that costs SIXTY ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR.    seriously!
