some people really and truly should be dead.  i’d even include their lawyers.

Okay … why does the media and even our military accommodate this thieving, traitorous flaming faggot by calling him a her.  HIS name is Bradley damn it and as long as he has male parts I don’t care if he wears a wig and lisps my name is Chelsea.

Now I haven’t a clue as to why he should not have been reading a popular magazine, or what the rules are.  But it’s pretty clear that while being in jail is usually no bed of roses, more and more creeps like this are pushing their “rights” and making a few up as they go along.  And of course they have lawyers. 
In his case ….  one of the rules violated was he had out of date toothpaste.
I have no liking for this bastard whatever but …. what the hell is wrong with having toothpaste that’s out of date?  And maybe he hadn’t even noticed it was.

Oh and btw damn way.  How is it HE is allowed to write for a newspaper?  As reported here, he writes a column for the very left wing Guardian, based here in Britain.  Besides that, how about this. 

Manning has become a transgender rights activist and writer.

How does one become an activist while in prison?  Must have plenty of spare time and not much in the way of KP or work details. 

I guess at some point in time with taxpayer money, he’s already been approved for hormone treatments, he’ll go all the way and have his male part removed and become what he says he is. Well maybe during the operation they might make a mistake and cut the wrong way and he’ll f***ing die.  Seems to me there was a time when the death penalty applied to treason. 
But I guess fucking the country whose uniform you wore just isn’t as serious as once it was.
Too bad that.

As an aside …. with all the damn guns floating around in the USA, with ppl being shot or shot at, with literally millions of guns in private hands, why is it that not once has a patriot taken out a defense lawyer for people like Bradley Manning?
Just asking is all.

I caught this article in a liberal paper, so most of the anti American comments by ass wipe block heads who are all experts on us will not surprise you. But go ahead. Read em anyway.  It’ll reinforce why we’re on the right and conservatives.

The US Traitor, Chelsea Bradley Manning could be placed in solitary confinement for allegedly being in possession of the Caitlyn Jenner issue of a Vanity Fair, her his lawyer said on Wednesday.

Manning is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence after being convicted of espionage for leaking over 700,000 classified documents to Wikileaks while working for the military in Iraq.

Manning, who is transgender, is currently serving her his prison sentence at the Fort Leavenworth men’s military prison, where her his hearing in front of a panel of three people will take place in private, according to her his lawyer Nancy Hollander.


Manning was also allegedly found with other reading material, an expired tube of toothpaste and is accused of disorderly conduct for sweeping food onto the floor and of showing disrespect, according to the Associated Press.

Her his supporters have launched an online petition claiming she he is being punished for “speaking out” and listed the four charges against herhim , which include ‘medicine misuse’ for the expired toothpaste.

Ms Hollander told AP Manning had requested the hearing be held in public.

“This is like prison disciplinary infractions in a civilian prison and there will be a hearing, but frankly it looks to me like harassment,” she added.

Hollander claimed a number of Manning’s books and magazines were confiscated, including a copy of Malala Yousafzai’s autobiography, the book Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy — The Many Faces of Anonymous, an issue of Cosmopolitan featuring an interview with herhim , and a copy of the US Senate report on CIA torture.

Since announcing her his transition in 2013, Manning has become a transgender rights activist and writer. She he is also a columnist for The Guardian.

Manning’s hormone therapy was approved by the US Government in a landmark ruling in February, although she he is not allowed to grow her his hair.

Use Your Brain

The Law Of Intended Consequences

Stupid Idea:

Stupider Idea:

“Excuse me while I whip this out ...”

RCMP Storms Beach After iPhone Case of Mistaken Identity

GRAND BEACH, Man. — A Manitoba man has turned his cellphone case over to police after it caused panic on a crowded public beach.

The black case, shaped like a handgun, was tucked in the waistband of the man’s shorts on Sunday while he was at Grand Beach north of Winnipeg.

RCMP were called and responded with real rifles and Tasers. They found the man sitting on the beach with family members, including children, and quickly determined he was only armed with an iPhone.

Sgt. Bert Paquet says the 34-year-old man was questioned and voluntarily gave officers the case for disposal. He will not face charges.  [ Drew: Open carry in Canada is illegal, eh? ]

“While the individual knew this item to be a fake gun, our officers did not,” said Paquet.

“Some people do not realize the risks associated with openly carrying or displaying these replicas in a public space. Anyone who owns this type or similar devices should safely dispose of them immediately.”

Moar? Sure, why not ...

Last week, Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison of the New York Police Department posted a message on Twitter warning consumers against buying the case.

The New Jersey State Police also recommended that people not buy the case.

“This cell phone case is a terrible idea,” the department said in a Facebook posting. “Officers do not have the luxury of time when making split-second decisions while interacting with the public.”

The prosecutor’s office in Ocean County, N.J., also commented on Facebook.

“Please folks — this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea,” the posting read.
Michael J. Bouchard, a Michigan sheriff, said last week there was too much potential for dangerous misunderstanding if a student walked into a school or a person walked into a bank with one of the cases.

“It looks like literally you have a weapon sticking out of your back pocket,” he said in an interview with WXYZ-TV in Detroit. “We are not a big fan of it on any level.”
Reviews for the cases on Amazon suggest that consumers see the same safety hazard as law enforcement officials — and are even more frank in their derision.

“Wonder if the imbeciles who buy this case will live long enough to enjoy it,” wrote an Amazon user under a listing for one of the cases. “Amazon should remove it from their site.”

“What moron came up with this idea?” wrote another reviewer. “We live in a society where every time there is an incident involving police, people immediately whip out their cell phones to record it.

“Can you imagine the reaction of police in the middle of a tense situation seeing someone pull this device out?”

It doesn’t take more than a millisecond of thought to realize what a monumentally stupid idea this accessory is. Whoever adds it to their shopping cart might as well toss in a Darwin Award too.

Man oh man. Some people are either really really stupid, or just plain confrontational. This one is way beyond passive / aggressive. It’s looking to cause a problem.

Use your brain people. Even if you live in a thug culture environment you’re better off packing real heat than pretending to. A pretend weapon can get you in just as bad a situation as a real one, and then you have no way out.

Want a way out? Here’s what I call using your brain ...

bordering on insanity

Census: 42.1 Immigrants in US, Mostly From Mexico

(in other words, they’re here ILLEGALLY)

Crivens, no wonder I can’t ever find a parking space. This is nearly a 41% increase over the 30 million we had here 15 years ago. You know, the 5 million that the government admitted to, when they couldn’t remember it was the 11 million they spoke about the week before. What is with DC anyway? They all fail math class, or skip Accounting 101 at community college or something? I mean, WTF peeps. You guys can’t count heads, you can’t count weapons, you can’t keep track of billions. Horry Clap already.

A new analysis of legal and illegal immigrant counts by the Census Bureau revealed Thursday that there is a record 42.1 million in the United States, an explosion that is being driven by Mexicans flooding across the border.

In a report provided to Secrets by the Center for Immigration Studies, the total immigrant population surged 1.7 million since 2014. The growth was led in the last year by an additional 740,000 Mexican immigrants.

The 42.1 million tabulated by Census in the second quarter represent over 13 percent of the U.S. population, the biggest percentage in 105 years.

What’s more, the numbers of immigrants coming and going from the U.S. is actually higher since many return home every years, said the report. “For the immigrant population to increase by one million means that significantly more than one million new immigrants must enter the country because some immigrants already here return to their homeland each year and natural mortality totals 250,000 annually,” said the Center.

The stunning growth is sure to pour fuel on the already white-hot immigration debate in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail.

“Illegal immigration came up in the presidential debates, but there has been little discussion of the level of immigration; this at a time when total immigration is surging according to the latest data,” said Steven Camarota, co-author of the report and the Center for Immigration’s director of research.

“The rapid growth in the immigrant population was foreseeable given the cutbacks in enforcement, our expansive legal immigration system, and the improvement in the economy. But the question remains, is it in the nation’s interest?” he added.

Answer: No, it is not in our nation’s interest. Period. Whatever jobs they are doing, aside from picking produce, we need actual Americans to do. Americans who have no jobs.

Extra Credit: White-hot immigration debate? What debate, white-hot or otherwise? The only one with an opinion seems to be Ann Coulter, and her plan seems to be a) give them the boot, and b) stop all immigration for now. I agree. We need to clean house, and we need a 10 year break just so the government can catch up on their paperwork. And greedy capitalist scum corporations? No H1-Bs for you. Hire an American and STFU. They have the skills you need, so stop being cheap fux and complaining how you can’t hire a PHD for $9/hr.

Oh, and if 42.1 is about 13 percent, that means the US population is about 324 million. Take away 42 million, and that puts us around 282 million. Which is still 100 million people higher than the population we had in 1978 when we had the same workforce participation numbers we do now. And it is also very close to the population we had in 2000 ... so nearly all our population growth is from immigration, legal or otherwise??  How about them apples?

Somebody better tell Trump his Great Wall of Mexico needs to also go 100 feet under the ground to stop the tunnelers, and quite a few miles out to sea.

And if I hear one more lefty asshat drop that “we’re a nation of immigrants” dog turd, I’m a gonna hit something. It’s short sighted BS. And it stopped being relevant by 1925. Them as came as immigrants back in the Once Upon A Time ain’t immigrants no more, nor are their offspring. So shaddup already.

Not a good night on the lanes

We went down 2-5 in our last week of round robin bowling. That probably won’t change our 3rd place position in the standings, but it looks to me like the team we played last night will be the team we face for the next 2 weeks in the finals.

The good news is that they can’t bring in any substitutes for those weeks, so the ringers they’ve been using will just have to stay home for once. So maybe we stand a chance.

We stood little chance last night. We got burned in the first game when their anchor threw a 277; 7 strikes in a row, 9/, 3 more strikes and then some pins. Nice game for a 185 average roller. I went 38 over for a 203 but that wasn’t enough, and we lost by 45. Everyone on their team bowled well above average, and everyone else on my team was Teh Suck.

We bowled even worse the second game. I lost my line and dropped to something pathetic like a 145. Our noob, after 15 weeks of learning to bowl, threw 2 0-0 frames. Double gutters. The first on his one and only mark, adding up to something like an 86. Our anchor was 60 under, and we lost that game by about 72.

But we rallied. Mostly. We were even or ahead almost all of the final game. At the end of the 8th frame we were 86 ahead, and felt that with a bit of luck we could close the gap and maybe take wood. I was marking every frame, but with spares and just a few strikes. And then we either faltered, or faltered while we were being managed. Because suddenly the other team started making strikes left and right. I caved to the pressure, or to the black aura miasma emanating from a couple of my teammates. C’mon, lighten up. We’re playing a game here, m’kay? Win or lose, if you can’t have fun, why the hell are you here? Whatever. I blew the 9th with an 8-miss, and I blew the 10th with a 9-miss. So I threw away a possible 220 game and finished with a 189. Sure, still above average, but not what it could’ve been. Noob dude finally stopped bowling from his ass and slanging his arm all over the place, and managed to roll the ball down the middle of the alley for a change, letting him finish with the Great Scott score of 111. ("Great Scott” from Rocky Horror, combined with the old style score sheets you wrote on with a grease pencil; folks would draw a caret “roof” over the 111 and thus it became 1 person in a skinny little building, ie an outhouse, and thus it’s still known as the shithouse score. It wins you a roll of toilet paper at the prize meeting after the season, and a bit of lightweight jeering. ) But WTH, I think we should give him MVP for that, because the “management” we were getting only managed to eat 79 pins of our 86 pin lead, and we actually won that game. By 7. So no wood for us either.

No subs allowed for the finals, so this team will have to say goodbye to it’s 225 average ringers who are running a 189 average in this league, and just get by with their own 85 average noob, who hasn’t even been around in 8 weeks. Hey, 75 is his absentee score.

I really wish I could afford to join a highly competitive league by myself. I’ve got the competition bug really bad. Shame is, I can’t bowl anywhere near good enough to stand up in that kind of league. Maybe someday. Mostly.

Liberal Follies Round 1911: Tax The Bullets!

Seattle “Gun Violence” Tax: A Nickle A Bullet, $25 Per Gun


Wilson Combat’s Tactical Supergrade: 46 ounces, $4300

Guns like this are stuffed in the underpants of every gang-banger, right?

No wonder their pants are always falling down!

Seattle is ready to tax guns and bullets. The City Council unanimously passed a special tax on Monday, and Mayor Ed Murray signaled his support for the measure.

The new law will impose a $25 tax on guns and a 5-cent tax on bullets sold within the city limits. Lawmakers called it a “gun violence tax” because proceeds would be used for prevention and research programs to reduce gun violence in Seattle.

The law is based on a similar $25 gun tax that passed in Cook County, Illinois, in 2013. The Seattle budget office estimates the law will raise $300,000 to $500,000 a year.

Seattle estimates that direct medical costs from gunshot wounds totaled $17 million last year, with taxpayers picking up $12 million of the costs. The Urban Institute estimated that gun violence costs U.S. taxpayers $500 million a year.
The gun industry group, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, also opposes the law. It said it is toothless, since many criminals do not purchase guns legally.

“It’s misguided because it will only harm law abiding businesses,” said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president and general counsel for the NSSF. “It’s like imposing a tax on a pharmacy to address a heroin epidemic.”

He also said the city isn’t going to raise much tax revenue, because buyers will go elsewhere.

“The economic model they used is a fallacy,” he said.

The economic model is a phallusy? Does that mean it was thought up by some dick?

I like the line though. Tax the pharmacies to address a heroin epidemic. Gotta remember that one.

One more instance of the loonie left making laws and taxes to screw the hard working and law abiding, while doing absolutely nothing to prevent crime.

Is It Grant Proposal Time Again Already?

Secret Tomb of Nefertiti Found At Last?


Nefertiti, the original babe

This story is all over the online news to a greater or lesser extent. Like those famous Russian nesting dolls, called matryoshka, the latest theory based on ultra-high resolution topographic photography, is that her tomb lies hidden inside Tut’s tomb. A few nearly invisible lines in the plaster on the walls may be hiding secret doorways, and his being buried there (she may have been his mother??) explains why this one pharaoh was entombed in a shrine merely good enough for a queen. Basically, they just tossed him in the ante-room with a pile of stuff and a few buckets of beer and said good enough.

The answer to one of Egyptology’s most enduring mysteries may have been lying in plain view the whole time, an archaeologist has claimed.

According to new research, the long-sought final resting place of Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti may lie beyond two hidden doorways inside the tomb of King Tutankhamun.

The discovery was made by Nicholas Reeves, an English archaeologist at the University of Arizona, after poring over high-resolution digital scans of the walls of Tutankhamun’s grave complex in the Valley of the Kings.

In a research paper published online, Dr Reeves claims to have found a bricked-up and hitherto unnoticed portal leading out of the celebrated king’s burial chamber.

“The implications are extraordinary, if digital appearance translates into physical reality,” he wrote. “Within these uncharted depths an earlier royal interment – that of Nefertiti herself.”

Archaeologists have long searched for the lost burial place of the slender-necked queen, who was the chief consort of the pharaoh Akhenaten in the 14th Century BC. The apparent gravity of the new research underscores the role that modern technology can play in bringing new discoveries to light.

In the research paper, Dr Reeves praises the work of Factum Arte, the Madrid-based group whose open source mapping of the site made the discovery of Nefertiti’s apparent “ghosts” possible.

“Conservators anywhere in the world are now able with ease to scrutinise and consider the paintings: every crack, blemish, and technical feature,” he wrote.

Naysayers poo-poo this theory because, as Akhenaten’s queen (Amenhotep IV, “the abomination” who invented monotheism and nearly caused a civil war by tossing out all the other gods) she lived in his new capital city of Amarna, and thus was cut off from Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. But her face and name have been found on stelae and grave inscriptions all over this very Egypt.


Alas, the mystery is likely to continue for a good while yet. The sensitivity of the site and its cramped conditions make examining the tomb in situ especially challenging.

“I think by using modern seismic X-ray technology it should be possible to look through the walls and see if there are significant anomalies or indeed gaps in the bedrock behind those walls,” says Wilkinson.

“That sort of ground penetration radar is well developed. It’s been used in the Valley of the Kings and other places in Egypt,” he says.

Even if this portal is found to exist and leads to a hidden chamber inside Tut’s tomb, Wilkinson maintains such a discovery would lead to an even longer debate about how best to excavate the site without causing damage to the existing monument.

“We may get to the point within a few years of knowing whether there is a chamber behind (those walls), but I think it will be quite a while before we can peek inside any chamber that might be there,” he says.

“But it’s very tantalizing and it would be nice to think that in a few years’ time we might have the final answer.”

Tutankamun’s tomb is no longer open to the public because all the visitors and their moist breath were aging the frescoes. Instead, a tremendously accurate facsimile tomb has been built nearby for visitors. In size, shape, depth, condition, and detail it is accurate to the very millimeter, scratch, and paint shade.  Even the story of making the fake one is pretty interesting, so here’s a link to it.


Keep this picture in mind when you click over to the super high resolution photographs that were the cause of this ruckus. The display tool takes a minute to figure out, but by clicking at the grey edges when not in super zoom mode it will switch between the artwork around Tut’s sarcophagus and the 3-D topography of the plastered wall beneath the paintings. See if you can find your own hidden doorways and secret bits. This is a fantastic link. I really encourage you to click and have a visit. Click on the main sign (#62) to get things started, then click again to access the controls.

when mommy and daddy are both the same sex and other stuff

I doubt I’d find too many if anyone at bmews, that would argue against the proposition that there is no longer anything that would surprise us any longer.

When most of us here were growing up, mom and dad were males and females.  We knew who and what mom and dad were. You know, boys and girls. Right?

But no longer.  Now, boys can marry other boys and girls can marry other girls, and one of em if children are involved, will be called; what?  On the one hand (no puns here, Rich excepted cos he can’t resist ) how can a kid call a guy daddy when his partner refers to him as his “wife”?  It gets confusing.

I once heard that cow Rosie O. refer to her, “wife”, which when ya look at her yeah, you can see a male. But you know she isn’t.  I don’t care anyway. I’m just saying that things I once took for granted I now find are upside down.

I heard a panel show had nothing to do with that subject, but one female panelist continually referred to her ‘wife’ so often, it sounded like she was just itching to be offended or challenged.  But nobody said anything to her, which must have been a great disappointment.

Queers are no longer odd, they’re gay. They’re now mainstream, they would have us believe and it might be true.  Who among us would have thought that remotely possible even ten years ago?

The letters “ism” are added to things I had never heard before recent times.

Age-ism.  Ageism?  It sounds so stupid to read or hear.

I can accept consumerism.  I understand that and it’s been around a long time.
Altruism, I know that word too. No probs.
No problems with capitalism either.  It’s all the recent politically correct ism’s I have problems with.  There are so damn many isms recently introduced one can not keep track ovem all.  Well, some have actually and I was surprised how far back it goes.
This is from 1991 and my opening remark about not being surprised has already been shot full of holes by this.  Really folks. Take a look at what some ppl were serious about.

Would you believe, thighism ? And how about this?

The University of Connecticut contributed ``laughism,`` which goes far beyond gaffawing at verboten ethnic jokes and includes all kinds of social and personal snickering.

Oh well. Ct.  Why am I not surprised about that. If pc didn’t exist already, the state of CT. would have invented it.  And some of you are critical of CA. calling it the land of fruits and nuts.  Well okay you do have a point but it’s a bit harsh since it had become my adopted home state for most of my life.  How I wish I could return to Palm Desert. 

Then there are words normal to us all with no isms, that were okay yesterday but today are racist, nationalist, dehumanizing and just bad language.
To make matters even worse, now some UN idiot has stepped into the fray, well in reality there wasn’t one till he made it so.

A week or so ago the Prime Minister of this country described the migrants flooding the borders and doing their best to enter the UK illegally, as a “swarm”.
He was referring to the refugees at Calais as, “A swarm threatening to come to Britain.” Well don’t ya know the left in its usual disingenuous bleating said the use of swarm hinted at insects and was racist, blah, blah and more blah. 
Thankfully, this time the PM did not follow the usual sorry and bad Brit habit of saying sorry. 

So last week Britain’s foreign secretary described the migrants in Calais as,
“A marauding threat to Europe”.  He went on to state that in Calais, “there are large numbers of desperate migrants marauding around the area and that African arrivals in Europe were undermining its “standard of living”.

One only has to turn to the net or TV news to see the truth in that.

Enter a spokesman for the schmucks at the UN who said that Britain’s approach to the Calais migrant crises has an element of …. “racism and being a nationalist populist reaction to migration”.  This from the UN special rep. on “The Human Rights of Migrants”.  The UN has a special office for them?
Guess so.

The secretary was roundly condemned for using …. “dehumanising language” in the use of that one word, marauding.

So in conclusion, the words swarm and marauding should now also be accepted as race terms. So then ….  Shall we soon be seeing, Swarm-ism and Maraud-ism?

It would not surprise me at all.

Karmic Bucket List

Bucket List Item #43, Lifetime N.2.01

I want to dance in a meadow to the beat of the season
Gyrate and spin and prance without reason
Whip my hair ‘round me with unbridled pleasure
While it bounces behind in counter time measure


The Wheel of Karma will have to land on an equivalent “Big Money” space for this to happen. Were I to do such a thing in this lifetime, children watching would ask their parents if the old bald guy going crazy in the grass was being attacked by bees.

it’s official, I’m sick

Why am I making a blog post at 2:20 in the morning? Because I’m up. Coughing. Because I am officially sick.

I thought I was on the mend, having had the worst ever waterfall sinus condition for the past week. But things got even worse and I finally gave up the foolish male stubbornness and made an appointment. Hey, now that I’ve got my legally required insurance, I may as well use it.

The doctor was so impressed by my coughing that she immediately sat me down and made me partake in a session with their nebulizer. I had no idea what that was, but it sounded like some weapon system from Star Treck. Phasers, photon torpedos, galactic nebulizer. Nope, it’s the medical version of a “Vape”; an electronic cigarette. Just what my bronchitis needs! Actually, it’s a gizmo rather like the air pump from a fish tank hooked up to widened perfume spray venturi attached to what could be a paint cup from an air brush. A gentle breeze turns a spoonful of liquid medicine into a cold steam, which you breathe in through the mouthpiece on the plastic venturi tube. I have no idea what the medicine was, but my chest felt relaxed afterwards.  I never even got around to telling her about my “deep coughing” technique wherein I cough and cough and cough and cough and then cough harder, sometimes having to squeeze the sides of my head against the muscle spasm, and cough hard until some “lungfish” of sticky mucus breaks loose. It’s harsh, but it works, and it’s got me through the past couple of days.

So I’ve got a major sinus infection going, and bronchitis, and a nice middle ear infection. Actually, I think I’ve been keeping the middle ear infection on slow simmer for years now. I think it’s the cause of my almost-always moderate hearing loss, because my Eustachian tubes never open. Must’ve been at least 5 years ago when I saw an ENT who gave me a small dose of steroids, which just barely started to work and then the ‘scrip ran out. No, sorry, you just tapered off, you can’t have any more.  Gee, thanks. And it was a couple years before that, that I tried the drainplug grommet inserted through my eardrum, which was supposed to eliminate inner ear pressure and get things draining. Didn’t work for beans. So I’ve lived with the ear thing, and the deafness that comes and  goes  gets even worse in the winter ... but I knew the inner ear thing was acting up this time when I got up a couple of mornings and found myself bent over to the side walking in tight arcs to the right, because that was what my brain was feeling was up. Middle ear messes with your balance. But I could overcome that with a few good nasal blasts of saline spray and some magnum nose blowing. So I only felt that way for a minute or two each time.

I went a long long time without health insurance, and got by most of the time by going to the local health clinic. You don’t usually get to see a doctor, you see a PA, and that’s usually good enough. Two years ago the last one decided I had COPD, gave me several long term prescriptions to asthma pills, steroidal sinus sprays, and a rescue inhaler, and sent me on my way.  Oh, and here’s a shit ton of low power generic cholesterol lowering pills. I milked those ‘scrips for all they were worth, and finally ran out of the last sinus spray and inhaler about 2 months ago. I figured this iteration of the sinus thing - generally I get 2 a year, almost like clockwork, and have for at least 20 years - was because my meds were used up. But then it hit me worse than it has in a long long time. And for all I knew, it could be a Lyme Disease flare up. I had a real case of Lyme last year, and I got a couple of tick bites this Spring, although they weren’t the “right” kind of tick and I didn’t get any of the symptoms like last time. Which can also be one of the symptoms. Like Lupus, Lyme is a sneaky little bastard. And what happens the second time? Can there be a second time?

Right. So off to see the real doctor. And tell my story, going back most of a decade. She looks at her tablet computer and names the ENT who did the minimal steroid treatment. Damn doc, you’re good; I know I didn’t mention her name because I never knew it. Yes, but our whole county is wired in to a shared medical database run out of the hospital. EMR at its finest, and it works. Sign that HIPPA form and they share everything within their medical circle.

And after all of this, I come home with 5 ‘scrips, including a much heftier regimen for the Prednisone steroid. Giant anti-cough pills. Antibiotic pills big enough to use as pillows, of a kind I’d never heard of. Even new sprays for the old schnoz. Oh baby. So I’ll be popping pills left and right for the next couple of weeks. And who knows, I may actually get well. And perhaps even be able to hear! Horry Clap! And they want to see me again ... not in a few weeks or months, but this very Friday. You know, maybe the clinic isn’t such a great solution after all. They were there when I needed them, they were cheap, and they got me well enough to continue muddling through. I think I want to do more than just muddle this time.  I had the first round of pills with lunch, then took a nap for an hour. I think I feel better already.

illegal migrants swarm greek island , make demands and riot.

Europe’s migrant crisis boils over: Kos police break up refugee protest with batons and fire extinguishers after 1,500 migrants stage sit-in at football stadium chanting ‘we want to eat’

· Migrants started pushing and shoving in a queue during a registration procedure at a stadium of Kos town
· There were only a handful of police officers left to control a crowd of approximately 1,500 jostling migrants
· Officers used were left trying to impose order on the crowd by hitting the fighting migrants with their batons
· When that didn’t work the police resorted to blasting the migrants with foam, causing hundreds to flee in panic

migrants swarm Greeks

There are already 7,000 illegals on this island of 30,000.

Oh joy. Just what the Greeks need about now.  Thousands of illegal immigrants storming ashore, blocking roads and then making demands.
At least the Greek police shown here seem to act tougher than the French or Brits, whose hands are usually tied by silly legalities and red tape that only protects the illegals.  But what an opportunity lost by Greek cops.  There are some 26 photos to see plus video.  Look at how many are packed into a small looking space.
It would have been sooooooo easy and commendable if those cops used real weapons on the mob and eliminated every single one.  No exceptions made.
Betcha when word got out, Greece would become a no go area for migrants.

Killer and victim and no death penalty.

Thank the bed wetting weepy hearted hand wringers for years, for this version of justice. 

Wouldn’t any reasonable person, even those who oppose the death penalty for fear of deleting the wrong person in error, wouldn’t even they recognize that there are extreme exceptions?  Like this one.  I guess not. And they have been calling the shots on the subject for years.
In cases like this, I would not make any exception, not even for the old insanity BS.  Justice, real and honest justice, is doing to the bad guy, exactly what he did to his victim. 

Recently, a 14 year old went to school with the express purpose of stabbing a teacher, which he did.  He gut stabbed him, went on Facebook and bragged about it, and got 60 plus likes back from other sick F***s.  It would be a good thing if those ass wipes were found and took a knife in the gut, so they could know what they approved of felt like. And same for the yoot who did it.  He’ll spend three years in some kind of youth jail and then be put in a program of some kind that authorities think will make him a reformed and decent member of society.  Or, so he will convince them as so many others have.

There’s the link if you want all of it. I’ve nothing more to say. The photos and headline and same story over and over again just with different victims of all ages and gender.


And what do ya make of this bit of nonsense?

Prices Going Up

Coast Guard seizes 119,000 pounds of cocaine, about 14% of USA’s annual supply

Street value of moer than $1.8 billion.

The U.S. Coast Guard unloaded more than $1 billion worth of cocaine Monday at San Diego Naval Base – its largest delivery ever – as federal officials announced a record-breaking year for seizures of illegal drugs intercepted far offshore of Latin America.

Over the last 10 months, the U.S. Coast Guard and partners from the Navy, federal law enforcement and allied nations worked together to apprehend 215 suspected smugglers in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and more than 119,000 pounds of cocaine. The drugs have an estimated street value of about $1.8 billion.

The haul so far this fiscal year is already the largest since 2009, with more drugs interdicted near Central and South America than the three previous years combined.

The crackdown coincided with a surge since September of U.S. Coast Guard vessels patrolling near the world’s cocaine-growing region of Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. Tighter coordination among international stakeholders in the counter-drug campaign is another factor, as well as competition between cartels in Latin America and the Caribbean vying for control of seaborne trafficking routes.

The power struggle has contributed to rising instability, record-high homicide rates in Central and South America and the flow of unaccompanied children heading north of the border, federal officials said.

Crew members of the Alameda-based Stratton (WMSL-752), a new high-tech, long-range 418-foot Legend-class National Security Cutter commissioned in 2012, stopped at the San Diego base after a 4-month operation to unload wooden pallets strapped with more than 30 tons of pure cocaine. The load of more than 66,000 pounds is equal to about 33 million lines of cocaine or 336 million hits of crack, according to Drug Enforcement Agency estimates.

The drugs were seized by personnel on Coast Guard and U.S. Navy vessels during dozens of interdictions off the coast of Central and South America that involved a variety of vessels, including fishing boats, pangas, and two drug-running submarines.

It’s a start. If they could also seize this much in the Gulf, and at the border, and at the airports, then half the supply would be gone, and the rising price of crack would set off a new crime wave you couldn’t imagine the scope of.

Obama Built It

We just finished watching the new season of True Detective. What a dark, confused, mumbled, morose mess, dragged along with half a dozen of the worst plot devices and several rancid McGuffins. Come on. The bird head, the exploding Caddy, the giant shootout with the cartel. Occasionally gay biker cop Paul - the possible Black Mountain war criminal and all around ultra-bad gunslinging cat-eyed ninja - survives a 30:1 shootout in the dark tunnels under the city, sensing the bad guys in the dark and blasting them ... runs for miles in the twisted maze of tunnels, finally comes out some exit door at total random and doesn’t see Lt. Burris standing there 3 feet away in broad daylight, who then casually shoots him from behind. Twice. And there were plenty of others. Cheap effects and dead ends. Really poor writing and characters you can’t really like or hardly even care about. And it just got more depressing every episode.

But in the end ... I think the theme was that in the end, nobody wins when the evil criminal conspiracy is the government itself.  Makes me think of Obama. Yeah, he built that.

Saving grace? Kelly Reilly as Jordan Semyon, a good woman of a comfortable age married to a not-so-good guy. Smart, tough, realistic. And bless her minimal costume wardrobe, which consisted of 2 little black dresses and a cream cardigan.

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.
