federally approved, with better signage

You got it. Another hot and sunny day, so I’m back out on the roads again painting speed bumps.

Oh joy.

I’ve got my big gallon of old school Rustoleum, the old time oil based stuff with extra crispy VOCs. Use it outdoors, preferably on a really windy day, or else. And it comes in OSHA mandated Safety Yellow. Shade 7543-402 to be exact.

I will give OSHA some credit here - this is one brilliant, bleeding eyeballs yellow. I swear it glows in the dark. I also think it’s just about the exact same color as my wife’s Sentra. Just in case I need vast amounts of touch up paint some day.

image




Right. So gather the tools ... plastic bags, mineral spirits, bottled water, hat, roller, signage. Drywall screws. Screwdriver!

Oh yeah, signage. Well, it seems the Derps here can’t understand what “Wet Paint” means, so I had to figure out some additions to help them. Now it will be “Wet Paint ... this side only ... Please drive around --->“ on a big white plasti-board panel. Safety cones? No. We ain’t got no safety cones. That would be too easy.

Remind me to make a sardonic post about safety cones, the plastic rulers of the western world. It’s true!! We obey them without thought or question. They are our little orange angels, sent down to save us from danger, disaster, and minor inconvenience. All hail Safety Cone! Save us! Lead us! Rule us!!

Hmm, absolute obedience huh? And that tapered cone shape. Gives me an idea ...

Joe Biden would have made the best President… According to Joe Biden

Well, I’ve gone through one broken computer, one bed lost, a whole bunch of fidgety password recovery time, and a cold bordering on flu I’m stuck in the middle of. But I’m back.

It’s been too long, but I’m back.

So, how shall we celebrate?

Well, I’ll think I’ll start with a crowd pleaser on one of our favorite scumbags. And since it has been too long in my books since BMEWS has done it, I would like to propose an awarding of the BARKING MOONBAT AWARD, backdated to the appropriate time/week for this.

No, not Hitlery or Obummer sadly enough, but someone who is less powerful and more feckless but Really, REALLY should get more scorn than he has. And who I think needs to have his statements put under a floodlight given the latest report (which I’ll try and cover in a bit) that might make even the DNC think about a Clinton run.


I am talking about Lyin’ Joe Biden. Who earlier this month decided to put THIS lovely article up through some of the usual lap dogs. Read if you’ve got a strong stomach.

Biden: ‘I would have been the best president

... and it totally unrelated news, I’m going to put this here. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/crossexamined/2015/02/the-dunning-kruger-effect-are-the-stupid-too-stupid-to-realize-theyre-stupid/

Because I really, Really don’t think it could fit anywhere better than this. Because the world has been way too kind to someone liek Joe Biden in the ways that matter to the public at large (and arguably given the death of his son a bit too harsh in the other ways, but as a citizen of this republic I have to prioritize what matters to The Public Thing than private grief).

We already Knew Biden was stupid and incompetent. This should not be a controversial thing to say; he was the person BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE joked about being Obama’s living anti-assassination insurance, in the same way that Charles II allegedly told his Catholic, tactless brother James. That much is fairly well known and it should be. But he’s so much worse than that, I just didn’t realize how much worse.


I knew that he was a liar since last - and especially since the absolutely DISGUSTING arse covering for Iran in claiming that their kidnapping of American servicemen and international law-shredding humiliation of them was “Standard Nautical Procedure” (Protip: It’s Not. Just imagine what the Golden Age Royal Navy would have done to somebody trying to claim such rights against their ships). That got cemented by his lies against Ted Cruz (which admittedly was all too common in the campaign). But those things? they “merely” establish that he’s inept, corrupt, and dishonest.

It isn’t until I read this article that I realized that in addition to these things, he is also A Fucking Megalomaniac. But apparently having just ONE in the White House with a job title that includes the word “President” wasn’t enough for Democratic National Party. Instead the sheer ARROGANCE has to jump off the page right at you.

“I think I would have been the best president,

Ohhoh! Look out Georgie Washington! Sure, you helped secure Virginia’s colonial frontier, endured terrible hardships to defeat THE MOST POWERFUL EMPIRE IN THE WORLD, helped unite the disparate states and factions of the Founders to crate the United States, the Constitution, and the institutions that endure to this day..... but Crazy Joe Biden is pretty sure he can take you.  Seriously… how much of an egotistical PRICK do you have to be to seriously believe this? Almost more importantly: how immensely, gravity-defyingly STUPID do you have to be to declare this belief IN PUBLIC?

While I realize that between two terms of Obama and a race that has seen Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump this is not an election season for the meek, I think that people still realize that on some level that one of the traits that has distinguished many of the greatest American Presidents has been modesty. Whether it’s the (somewhat affected/exaggerated) modesty Washington used even when he was at his most ambitious, to Lincoln making jokes about how ugly his face was, to Cool Caretaker Calvin Coolidge, to Teddy Roosevelt’s troubled childhood and soul-crashing end life. The knowledge of what you are NOT compliments knowledge and confidence in what you are, and some of the smartest things you can say in this life are admitting when you honestly don’t know the truth or aren’t capable of something, and when you ask someone who knows for help.

This is particularly important in a constitutional government, where you are Not the Monarch, you should not be a unilateral lawmaker, you do not have the right to rule unfettered by law, and being the head dog does not mean having a blank check to do whatever you want. It Is also particularly important in command of the most powerful job known because of how high the stakes are. And when you combine the two, well… no prizes for guessing how important this can be.

You are a Public Servant. You are meant to serve the public, and if the Public does not appreciate what you are doing it should retain the right to sack your rear end out the door. And if you try and make yourself more important than the system you damn well SHOULD suffer even harsher penalties. Which is another reason why our system suffers under the control of egotists and megalomaniacs: because they believe that they are the most important thing on the dance floor, and everybody else- hundreds of years of common law, local governance, and the like- can make way. this is also why I do think truly free republics prefer some degree of modesty from Presidents, and absolutely NEED people who will place the common good over their own petty things.

So, how’s crazy Joe on that note? >/br>

but it was the right thing not just for my family but for me,” not to run, Biden said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

I don’t usually dig into peoples’ family or private lives, because I believe that without Extreme circumstances that should be one thing the gasping, gaping maw of government and public rubbernecking should not go into.

But I also don’t usually have to deal with people who have this degree of runaway ego. And no, I do not think that the tragedy the Bidens have suffered- and I can only imagine what the loss of a son is like- can excuse their patriarch behaving like THIS.

So let’s notice one thing he did NOT spend any time focusing on when talking about how right this was for him, and right for his family.. Where in this sorry, hagiographic article does ANYBODY give a livy-livered DAMN about what is the right thing for America? Apparently not Mr. Wonderful the President we deserve but not the one we’ll have.


let’s get this straight.

Biden the shameless liar, incompetent, and proverbial living job insurance for Obama claims that he would have made the best President if he ran- at least among the people in the race but Very Likely of all time- but that he didn’t run because he had to take care of his Family. Oh no America, you could have had Crazy Joe the President who was better than Washington, Lincoln, Adams, Jefferson, Reagan, both Bushes, any Roosevelt, and the like put together…

.. but you can’t, because Crazy Joe decided not to run. And why is that? Because he decided that things like the common good, the state of the union, the survival of the Republic, protection for its’ citizens, and all of that are *Trifles.* As far as his family matters are concerned, the Union can go get SCREWED.

In the context that this is being said by Joe Biden now, I find it deeply repugnant. And I will get into those reasons later, especially given that he is still Vice President. But even on the surface there is something I find wrong here. It’s one thing to care for one’s family, we should know as the family is one of the cornerstones of Conservative values and Civilization itself. it’s one thing to decide to focus on your family to the expense of political office (such as the many millions of homemakers and parents who never even THINK of running for office because they are too busy).

But I think an already-elected office holding official standing in front of the world and *gloating* that he would have been the best possible outcome in this presidential election but he simply won’t give us that option is something else entirely. It’s Lyin’ Biden looking down at the Rubes that elected his boss and stating they the PEOPLE are not worth it, but by the way he’s going to guffaw about how he would have been So Good And Great And Wonderful IF he had. It is in effect doing the inverse of what great patriots (see that word? Same root as Patriarch, and Father) have done if they TRULY believed it was for the best. It is not only putting the personal baggage of a handful of people over the possible Lives(and yes, let’s take Crazy Joe at his word about this for a bit) of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS.

And to top it off, this also rubbed me of the kind of “I’m too good for you flyover gits” holier than thou nonsense that has permeated far, far too many people over the ages and in politics today, like every iota of Obama’s miserable Presidency. We Are the Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, we are the Miracle Workers.... but you all just aren’t Worthy of our miracle working compared to things like my personal, precious emotions. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that is the sort of thing that I picked up.


I never thought I’d say it, but Biden managed to insult and offend me in an announcement about how he was NOT running. And it gets worse.

“No one should ever seek the presidency unless they’re able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that.

Finally, something he and I can agree tentatively on. That to be President of the United States is to be the seniormost elected official of the US, the leader of the Free World, and the most powerful person on the Planet. It requires the great holders to be willing to put their petty issues aside and undertake the great task that can sometimes be keeping the system stable and doing nothing (like Coolidge). Let alone bigger conflicts like the Revolution, Civil War, or the global wars against the Central Powers, Axis, and Communists in the 20th century. It may be easy to forget with President Putt-Putt but the office is not always meant to be a golden hog to feast on. It often requires great, terrible sacrifices and it carries even greater responsibility.

So while I am not entirely sure if you truly must devote your whole heart and soul and passion to it (just because you may have to put your family and friends second to the job does not mean not caring about them), I generally appreciate what Biden said here.

But then you realize how this sentence rips a big gash into all of this family posturing, claims that he cannot seek political power, and so on. Because Joe Biden is the one who said it. Vice President Joe Biden.

Now Mr. Vice President, while you were waxing rhapsodical in this whole big long interview did you ever *ONCE* think what YOUR OFFICE TITLE MEANS? It means you the legal successor to the office of President if it is vacant. The Constitution states that if Obama keels over sometime between now and the swearing in of his successor the Vice President would have to step in and carry out all the actions and responsibilities of President until the end of that term. And as things stand, That Would Be You.

So Mr. President, if you truly were saying the truth in this interview, truly believed that you should not seek the Presidency unless you’re able to devote your whole heart and soul and passion ina a way you state you cannot....... WHY THE HECK HAVE YOU NOT TAKEN PAINS TO GET OUT OF THE OFFICE OF VICE PRESIDENT?

And this is not like this is some kind of super recent development that he was still reeling from and he didn’t have the time to file the paperwork over because he was so busy mourning. Beau Biden passed on a year ago. It was just a few weeks scant of being a year when this turd of an interview got dropped. So he cannot in good conscience claim that it was “Too Soon” or he did not have enough opportunities to lay down the burden.  He is still to my Eternal Regret our Vice President. And I REFUSE to accept any given excuse that a year of mourning, disorientation, and sorrow- no matter how bad- is a valid excuse for not doing what someone apparently feels is necessary when people like Lincoln and other great leaders worked through their friends and family DYING. So why on God’s Earth is he still Veep?

Is it because someone so wonderful and Best as you was Reckless or Stupid enough that you never considered this possibility? Is it because you were lying out of your rear end when you said those words and truly are willing to assume the mantle of power? Or were you being honest, but are just willing to stay in for the time even if it meant burdening yourself and the AMERICAN PEOPLE with you in an office You Are Not Up To Assuming Right Now *By Your Own Admission?*

I think I have my own ideas. But which one is it? And perhaps as importantly: how do Any of these possibilities make him good, much less gel with the unreal lauding he gave himself earlier in this very interview?


So what else is there? Well, of course he is confidently pulling for Hillary .... at least in public, considering how the DNC party machine works, the possible dirt Hitlery may have on him, and his urge to stay on the favored side of both. And there is the massive, shit eating quote here at the end where he says.

“My one regret is my Beau’s not here,” Biden said in the ABC interview. “I don’t have any other regrets.”

Like a lot of things coming out of this administration, superficially this looks heartening, feeling-driven, and all that fluffy stuff. While in actuality.... what kind of person on this world does NOT Regret the “reset” with Putin leading to invasion, the ineffectual withdrawal from Iraq, the kidnapping of American servicepeople in the Persian Gulf, colossal inability of the US to win or even break even on things as far afield as the Iranian Sanctions deal, Freedom for Cuba, or stopping the great migrant invasion in this position of power? Because whatever the answer to that question is, it is NOT A good thing. Not in any sense of the word.

Conclusion underneath the Cut. Because while this article is important in a number of ways, it’s not just about Biden. It’s also about us.

another log in the woodpile

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones fatally shot

New Orleans Pelicans player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot to death early Saturday in Dallas, with his agent saying it happened because the player mistakenly entered the wrong apartment.
A Dallas resident told police he heard someone enter his apartment by kicking open the front door, police spokesman DeMarquis Black said in a statement. The resident said “he called out to the individual, but was not answered,” and when the resident’s bedroom door was kicked open, the resident fired his gun, police said

Dejean-Jones collapsed in the breezeway, police said. He was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries, Black said.
The basketball player’s agent, Scott Nichols, said Dejean-Jones was in Dallas to visit his girlfriend for his daughter’s first birthday.
This was the first time Dejean-Jones visited her new apartment, Nichols said. Later that night Dejean-Jones came back to the apartment complex but went to the wrong unit on the third floor, just below his girlfriend’s fourth-floor apartment, Nichols said.

Sure, right, because kicking open the front door, and then kicking down the bedroom door is the preferred method for paying a visit to your brood-sow to celebrate your child’s birthday.

doing a bit better now

Crivens, is it Sunday already??

And I haven’t posted all week!

Well, that’s what you get for being sick. Beats me what I’ve got. The blahs, the wilts, the allergies ... OMG, everything outside is crusted with this sticky yellow pollen dust. It’s on everything, everywhere! It’s like looking at the world through shooting glasses. And no rain in the immediate forecast, when we need a big hard soaker to give a us Rinse Cycle.

I’d set out a huge list of stuff to do this weekend, seeing as I’m here by myself with nothing else to do until some point Monday. And you know what I did? I slept. All day Saturday. Got up a couple of times and ate off of this pile of Chinese take out I got Friday night. Fed the cats. Took a shower. Emptied the drier. Went back to sleep. I didn’t even watch any TV, or read a book, or even surf the net. Just went back to bed. Ok, at 5:30 Saturday morning I went out and collected all my Wet Paint signs from the main road here where I’d been painting the speed bumps. That took 10 minutes.

Up at 5 again today. It’s like a habit! Fed the cats, took out the garbage, went back to bed. Twice. For some reason I’ve got a toothache, so I remember having some aspirin and flossing and using the water pick to see if the soreness was caused by something stuck between the teeth. More sleep. Now it’s quarter after 1 and I’m sort of awake. It’s hot out, somewhere in the mid 90’s. And the kitchen is a Category 4 disaster, dirty dishes and recycling piled from one end of the counter tops to the other. Where did they come from? Looks like time to run the dishwasher ... 3 cycles, maybe 4. And [sniff sniff] Oh GAWD, it’s time for fresh cat litter. Phooweee!!

Mr Painty

That’s me. Have roller, will travel.

Painting down at the clubhouse today, got all the doors and trim done. With the new fence, the new paved walkway, new umbrellas and a fresh coat of paint on everything, the pool is going to look really good this year.

Tomorrow is going to be almost hot, with lots of sun. Perfect day to slap some paint on the speed bumps. That yellow stuff is slow drying, so a nice bright day is just what’s needed. And I’ll take the extra hours, thank you.

And tomorrow night is bowling league. Ya know, I really ought to spare a little time and try and clean my ball. It hasn’t been cleaned in at least 50 games. Just saying.

GoT rip off

Game of Thrones … spoiler alert, sort of ...

“Hold the door”? Seriously? Hold the door? Three Eyed Raven Bran uses his super power to time jump inside his own head, and implants this one simple command in the head of “Willis”, fries his mind for the rest of his life, only to have him sacrifice himself 20 years later. And that bought Raven Bran what, about 30 seconds? Big help, seeing as he can’t walk and has to have skinny little Meera drag him around now. What a waste. What a let down. What a smarmy way to tie up loose ends and write out extra characters when you’re a burnt out author and you’re under the gun from the TV studio to finish telling the story in 6 more episodes that you couldn’t manage to tell with 5 books, 7,000 pages, 5 million words, and 20 years. Way to go, GRR Martin. And you killed the dire wolf too, ya bastard.

I would have had Raisin Raven Bran command him to bar the door with skinny bitch Meera. But then we’d be calling Hodor “Skibbige” instead. But at least he’d get away, and Bran would still have his body slave.

I hate having to defend Hillary

I gather there was a bit of a stink on Tweeter the other day, because Team Hillary put up some pro-gun control graphic that used a Venn diagram. I’ll admit, I haven’t used one of these things a single time since 5th grade, and that was about 4,000 years ago. So I may be a tad rusty.

But the intertoobs were going boinkers over this:

And how stupid and terrible and unknowledgeable her people are, blah blah blah. Fine. Can somebody draw me the proper diagram and point out her error? Thanks. Because the way I see it ...

Hillary In A Twist, Oh Boo Hoo

“a perfect storm of legal misery”



image

Sometimes just one look says it all. But a hashtag can help



The bad legal news for Hillary Clinton continued to cascade upon her presidential hopes during the past week in what has amounted to a perfect storm of legal misery. Here is what happened.

Last week, Mrs. Clinton’s five closest advisers when she was Secretary of State, four of whom remain close to her and have significant positions in her presidential campaign, were interrogated by the FBI. These interrogations were voluntary, not under oath, and done in the presence of the same legal team which represented all five aides.

Looks like the FBI is subpoenaing everyone around her and under her. And the IT guy that did the illegal server transfer got himself an immunity card. Yeah right, like that will stop him from accidentally committing suicide 3 or 4 times in a row. And now all of his emails are missing. Geez, what kind of circus act BS festival is this? It’s a damn mockery. Lock her up and the 60 people closest to her, go get a warrant and then have at it. Bring it all out in the sunshine for disinfecting, and if they can make a case then do it. This whole thing is a playground penis pulling party. Get it done. Indict, or STFU and go away.

It is almost inconceivable that all of his emails have been lost. Surely this will intrigue the FBI, which has reportedly been able to retrieve the emails Mrs. Clinton attempted to wipe from her server.

While all of this has been going on, intelligence community sources have reported about a below the radar screen, yet largely known debate in the Kremlin between the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Russian Intelligence Services. They are trying to come to a meeting of the minds to determine whether the Russian government should release some 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that it obtained either by hacking her directly or by hacking into the email of her confidante, Sid Blumenthal.

Oh, Sidney got hacked too? The man for whom Hillary started a war with Libya? Well how about that. And it might be Putin who puts the real nail in her coffin, or stays silent and thus saves her ass? Beholden much? “Reset” much? Ach, crivens, ya blaggart scunners, all a yea.

Finally, The Morning After

Oooh! Arrggh!! Curses!! Crivens!! We got destroyed! Aaaah!

Our new teammate Raf opened the summer season like a man on fire, trying for a perfect 300 game. He threw eight strikes in a row before bobbling in the 9th and leaving an open, then he made at least one more strike in the 10th and finished with a 255. Outstanding. We won that game with ease, even though we were giving away 83 pins with the summer league’s 90% handicap. Yay Raf!

Game 2 and Game 3 we ran into a wall, and I think the wall was the back panel to a porta-potty, because we all fell right into the shitter. We’re talking 50, 25, 75 under average. Ouch. Hurting! Our opponents weren’t much better, or much worse, but we couldn’t pull past that handicap and lost both games and the wood, so we finished 2-5 for the night.

Very few familiar faces in the group this summer. Good! Gives me a chance to meet new people and an opportunity to pimp my regular league, in hopes of getting new teams on board.

I have got to clean my ball and then have it resurfaced and baked. It’s probably time for a new ball, but for a $20 visit to the shop I can get it revitalized enough to get me through the summer.

No talk at all at the opening meeting about sanctioning this league. USBC has pushed away the regular members, and I guess we’re all “going Trump”. Good. Eff ‘em with a big sharp rock.

Finally

Summer League starts tonight! Woo hoo!!!

And we even have a third teammate already lined up, a fun guy who can bowl real well.

I’m heading up there right now for dinner at the restaurant, and then the typical first night chaos of summer league.

Gosh, I haven’t thrown a ball in two whole weeks!! It’s been forever!

Miracle of Miracles

I made telephone contact with Peiper’s wife!

And as usual we had the most wonderful conversation. She is the most charming lady and so easy to talk to.

Sadly, things are not going super great for our expat buddy.

Our Peiper is still “in hospital”, forced to wear some kind of harness on his upper body to restrain his movements to protect the work the doctors have done on him. He is slowly leaking blood into his lungs and the doctors have not been able to find out where it’s coming from. He is able to get up and walk around a bit, but he tires easily and sleeps most of the time. He is mentally alert, rather grumpy, and bored to death. He watches the Travel Channel on the room’s telly. Sounds to me like his condition is “guarded” at this point, a half step better than “critical”, but I’m no doctor. He’s been in hospital since Easter.

Wardmama, his wife Jen says your card arrived, thank you so much.

I am pretty certain he does not have access to any kind of computer or cell phone, so emails and text messages are out. I’m going to have to beat myself into submission and locate a pen and a stamp and sit down and actually write him a letter.

You could write him as well if you want. I’ll put his address up below the fold here, although it is online and not at all hard to locate in at least 4 ways if you know his real name. So send him a cheerful card and a kind word.

leftist dog shit

From the Sacramento Bee :

A lot of Democrats don’t want to admit it, but Donald Trump isn’t the only presidential candidate playing with fire and recklessly courting an angry mob.

For the latest round of curse-word hurling, chair throwing, social-media stalking and conspiracy-theory swapping, look no further than the supporters of Bernie Sanders.

Over the weekend, dozens of Sanders devotees lost their minds after the Nevada Democratic Party, meeting for its convention in Las Vegas, awarded a majority of delegates to front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Convinced that the establishment had rigged the rules and that Sanders delegates had been excluded for unfair reasons, they booed and traded barbs with people on stage, including Clinton surrogate and keynote speaker U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer.

The convention ended abruptly, descending into chaos that was captured for the world to relive on Facebook and YouTube.

Death threats and vandalism followed, prompting Nevada Democratic Party offices to close on Monday and its chairwoman, Roberta Lange, to release some downright disgusting voicemails and text messages she had received from Sanders supporters. She also reported threats against her grandchildren.

The episode had the reek of Trump rallies, where threats, insults and sucker punches to defend the presumptive Republican nominee have been common. Yet looking back at the hundreds of Sanders supporters who descended on a Clinton rally in East Los Angeles earlier this month to intimidate her supporters, making one little girl cry, it now seems inevitable that the same kind of violent eruption would afflict those “feeling the Bern.”

Yeah, those evil Trumpsters. The ones getting punched, kicked, shouted down, and kept from even having their own rallies ... by Bernie supporters. And the Hitlerites. Um, I mean Hillaryites.

But did you think the commies were going to try to take over completely peacefully? Oh hella no.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
