Russ was my Bestest Friend when I was a teen-ager in Germany.
When I was a kid, my dad was in the Army so we moved around a lot. Made a million friends, forgot a lot of friends, you know.
Russ was one of those friends that I didn't forget. I cannot begin to to tell you how much trouble we got into together. Nothing serious, just kid shit. Like when we got busted heaving boulders into a backyard swimming pool, riding dirt bikes through the officers' club during Happy Hour, and feeding the bucking bulls alcohol-soaked grain a couple of hours before the German-American Friendship Day Rodeo started.
I last talked to Russ when I was stationed in Texas, then I went back to Germany for 3 years.
A few years passed, but I never forgot Russ. When I finally joined the 20th Century and got online, my first thing was trying to find Russ, but I had no luck, none whatsoever no matter how hard I tried.
Until I checked the Social Security Death Index on a whim, looking for his folks. His name popped up and I knew it was him because how many Russell Gregory Simpsons born in El Paso on Groundhogs' Day in 1958 can there be?
It stunned me.
I swear to God I just now made a beer run in my camo bibs and no shirt. How fucking redneck is that shit? Even the Hindu clerk at the Bellmart was laughing.
Okay. I was was stunned. I started making internet searches for his folks and siblings and finally, finally I found his nephew who luckily forwarded my letter to his dad who forwarded to his ex, Russell Simpsons' sister.
Russ Died on July 24th, 1984 from a self inflicted gunshot wound to his head due to depression over a failed marriage according to the Harris County Texas Coroners' report.
I talked to Liz, his sister, and according to her and brother Ed, the evidence didn't add up. Both are convinced that Russ was murdered by his wife and her boyfriend. Now, I know that suicide is hard to accept but given Liz and Eds' accounts and Sheriffs' reports and my recollections of Russells' happy-go-lucky-fuck-life-up-the-ass-let's-get-high-and-laugh attitude....... Russ didn't couldn't wouldn't commit suicide.
But regardless, I lost the one and only friend that I would've saved my pennies for air fare to go see. The friend that knew secrets I wouldn't even tell Yolo and Bella. The friend that I always knew was my friend.
Sorry. This is and always will be his day.
A tough looking group of bikers were riding when they saw a girl about to jump off a bridge so they stop.
The pack leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, "Hey! What the fuck are you doin'?"
"I'm going to commit suicide," she says.
While the biker did not want to appear insensitive, he also didn't want to miss an opportunity, so he asked her, "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"
She gave the dude a long, deep lingering kiss.
After they were finished, the biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had. That's a real talent you're gonna be wastin'. I can only imagine what your blowjobs are like. So why are you wanting to X yourself out?"
"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl......"
So now the peaceful protests have erupted in violence.
I'll be honest, I don't know enough about Egyptian politics to take a side.
On one hand, I support their past practice of supporting Israel, and that's a very big plus for me. Anybody that's ever read my blog more than 2 days in a row knows I support Israel, no matter what.
On the other hand, I think every nation should have a democratic government.
I am against any government that shuts down free speech (the internet and restrictions of the press) for any reason like the current adminstration did. That was just plain chickenshit..
I'm against the Muslim Brotherhood and their Hamas backing.
I admire the Egyptian militarys' restraint.
I completely disagree with that fucking punk Obama telling the Egyptian President what to do.
I agree that there needs to be a US government backed administration in Egypt.
I disagree that it should be our present socialist administration backing it.
See what I'm saying? In my admittedly uninformed opinion, I think that Egypt should become a democratic nation with scheduled free elections as long as radical islam organizations like Hamas stays out of it and that bitch ass punk Obama minds his own business and Israel ain't gonna get attacked again.
You know, in the past year Australia has been hit by devasting forest/brush fires, then massive floods and now a super cyclone.
All the pictures I've seen show a determined nation doing what they have to do, and most of the pictures show them smiling while they do it, the crazy fuckers!
I especially hope Mr. Orsm (http://www.orsm.net/) doesn't fucking die because we steal a lot of shit from each other. Okay, I steal from him. My blog would suffer greatly if it weren't for him
The Aussies have yet to cry for international help.
Not only are our friends some tough motherfuckers, but they obviously don't have many liberals there.
Hang tight, boys.
This one is our new NIGHTHUNTER. It is based on your base Ruger® as normal, and can be in any of our hunting calibers. It is a pure working gun, for those that have asked for it. No frills, just solid basic hunting handgun.
The NIGHTHUNTER shown is in 429 GNR and has a 6 inch heavy duty barrel, a long, super strong 5 shot cylinder, all new internals, interchangeable blade system front sight with gold bead, set back trigger, Gunfighter Grip with satin black Micarta grips, full performance package that includes Maxi Throat, Deep Dish crown and action job. The entire gun is satin Vapor Honed with contrasting satin stainless parts. The new NIGHTHUNTER comes sighted in a ready to go. It is the normal $1395 on your base gun.
For those of you that aren't familiar with Gary Reeder Custom Guns, you've got to check his site. Gary takes your base gun (the Ruger SA you send him) and rebuilds it to an outrageous piece of machinery. From what I've heard, he replaces damned near everything to the point that the only original part of your handgun is the part that has the serial number on it. All of the prices I've seen are between $1100 and $1400 (you supply the base gun) with only a 3-4 month turnaround. What is really outstanding about this artist is that recently he's reduced his prices due to the faltering economy. How many other custom smiths have you heard of doing that? For more examples of his work go to: http://www.reedercustomguns.com/
My dream gun is the one above in 41 GNR shooting a 265 grain bulet at 1800 fps. Maybe someday.......
So I scored a couple of boxes of Hornadys' Superformance ammo in 22-250 and burned off 3 rounds to check my zero.
Now with their standard V-Max bullet, I'm zeroed at 1 inch high at 100 yards to hit dead on at 200 yards with an advertised muzzle velocity of about 3800 fps. From a rest with factory ammo from my Savage Model 11, I can get just under 1 inch groups which considering my shooting skills is fanfuckingtastic.
Now the data I've gotten from Hornady says that their Superformance V-Max should shoot dead on at 200 yards when zeroed at 1/2 inch high at 100 yards with an advertised mz of 4000 fps. The 3 rounds that I fired got me 2 inch groups from my truck which is still outstanding considering the contorted position my fat ass was in while trying to support the rifle with a cushion and my Stetson over the side of my truck.
I'll try to get some range time in within the next couple of weeks so I can give a better report, but I can tell you that a 2 inch group at about 100 yards from a semi-rest will still put me in the kill zone of a coyote at 200 yards out.
Just got finished reading Debs' post about snow in Maine and looking at Stevie Foodstamps FB pictures of snow in ABQ and reading emails from my ex-wife about the blizzard in Oklahoma and all I got to say is: Better you than me!
I hate the fucking snow. Growing up in Germany and Washington and Missouri, I had enough of that nasty shit. And if I wasn't real sure about it by then, being stationed in Germany and spending every motherfucking winter month in the field for 3 years damned sure convinced me.
One of the nice things about living in this pinko state is I can travel to the snow if I feel a need to get my truck stuck in a ditch. Seriously, a common saying when asked what's going on this weekend is "Oh, I thought we might go to the snow." And yes, with the crest of the Sierra Nevada only an hour and a half away, I can find snow all year round somewhere.
And I'll admit that going to the snow can be entertaining even if you don't ski, sled or anything else. If you don't believe me, next time I go (in a week or three) I'll take video of CharlieGodammit chasing motherfuckers in snowshoes. It's absolutely hilarious watching them try to run and then try to climb trees with snowshoes on with that dog dead off on their asses.
He does all right on skiers too, although he's yet to actually catch one of them.
Happy Birthday, my friend.
I'll always love you, always miss you, always grieve you. But most of all, I'll always celebrate our friendship.
We had so many good fucking times in front of us, man. Sorry you had to leave me.
The times we could've had........
Damn, Russ. Damn.
Five South Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require any adult 21 or older to buy a firearm “sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense.”
The bill, which would take effect Jan. 1, 2012, would give people six months to acquire a firearm after turning 21. The provision does not apply to people who are barred from owning a firearm.
Nor does the measure specify what type of firearm. Instead, residents would pick one “suitable to their temperament, physical capacity, and preference.”
The measure is known as an act “to provide for an individual mandate to adult citizens to provide for the self defense of themselves and others.”
Rep. Hal Wick, R-Sioux Falls, is sponsoring the bill and knows it will be killed. But he said he is introducing it to prove a point that the federal health care reform mandate passed last year is unconstitutional.
“Do I or the other cosponsors believe that the State of South Dakota can require citizens to buy firearms? Of course not. But at the same time, we do not believe the federal government can order every citizen to buy health insurance,” he said.
Thanks, MaryAnn. I swear, I would retire there if Al Gore would get his ass moving on this global warming/ Climate change thing he's got going on.
Hey, pull my redneck card if you want but I actually kinda sorta admire Snoop. I don't listen to rap and I've never heard any of his stuff, but he seems like a straight-up motherfucker with a righteous attitude.
I seriously wouldn't mind burning a fattie or two with him even though I ain't into that anymore.
Fuck me running, I lost a follower on my blog today.
Nothing unusual about that - anytime I post something controversial or post my opinion about world happenings I pick up or lose followers. But I had been holding steady for about 3 weeks now, at least until this Egypt shit started.
I don't know if I lost the follower (hereby referred to as Quitter) because of my anti Muslim Brotherhood opinions, my support for Israel or just because all this shit bores Quitter.
CharlieGodammit is try to eat a doggie treat and chew on his rawhide bone at the same time, the greedy fuck.
But anyways, regardless of the title of this post, I could give a fuck less if I have one more or less follower. I have my views and I express them. And I'm grateful for the solid reader base that I do have. Y'all kick ass.
COLUMBIA, Mo. – A monster winter storm took aim at a third of the nation Monday, threatening to lay a potentially deadly path of heavy snow and ice from the Rockies to New England, followed by a wave of bitter, bone-rattling cold that could affect tens of millions of people.
Cities including St. Louis, Kansas City and Milwaukee could be hardest hit, with expected midweek snowfalls of up to 2 feet and drifts piled 5 to 10 feet. Even hardy Chicago could be in for its third-worst blizzard since record-keeping began.
"I wouldn't want to be on the road in open areas tomorrow night," said forecaster Tom Skilling of Chicago television station WGN. "I don't think I'd want to be driving in the city either. The fact is people die in these things. They skid off the road and go wandering around in whiteout conditions."
Warmer areas were not safe, either. The system could spawn tornadoes in parts of the South.
EL PASO, Texas – Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday that U.S. communities on the border with Mexico are safer than most Americans believe, but also warned Mexican drug cartels they'll be "met by an overwhelming response" should they move north.
Napolitano told an audience at the University of Texas at El Paso — just across the Rio Grande from Ciudad Juarez and the unprecedented wave of drug-fueled violence engulfing it — that it's "inaccurate to state, as too many have, that the border is overrun with violence and out of control."
"This statement, often made only to score political points, is just plain wrong," said Napolitano, who was governor of Arizona before being confirmed as Homeland Security secretary in 2009.
Napolitano said violent crime has not spiked in U.S. communities across the roughly 2,000-mile border with Mexico. But the secretary also recognized that guarding against spillover from Mexican drug violence is an ongoing concern.
"Today I say to the cartels: Don't even think about bringing your violence and tactics across this border. You will be met by an overwhelming response," she said. "And we're going to continue to work with our partners in Mexico to dismantle and defeat you."
Oh, my ass, lady. You're so full of shit it isn't funny. And do you honestly thing the cartels are afraid of you and your empty threats? Seriously, go to the Arizona border, the rural border and spout the same bullshit about how safe it is.
And the big subject today is location.
Just where are all them fucking coyotes, you ask?
Damned if I know. I’m still trying figure that one out myself but I can tell you what I look for, what I do, and who I ask when I’m scouting.
Again, keep in mind my location. This may or may not apply to mid-west or eastern coyotes, I really don’t know. But these tips are worth keeping in the back of your head.
Okay, we’ve established that coyotes eat anything and everything but their main diet is mice, rabbits bugs and other assorted field critters. I see coyotes every day (if I get off before dark) in farmers’ fields hunting mice. But the thing is, I don’t see them in every field, only certain ones and these are fields that have lain fallow for a cycle, fields that have been freshly (and I emphasize freshly) harvested or cut, and fields that have just been plowed. Why? Because that’s where the mice are easiest to catch. If there’s a thick crop of alfalfa or rye, it’s harder for the coyote to pin the li’l bastard down.
Look for other food sources as well. At the dairy that I hunted last week, the woman was complaining about her chickens being killed. Some dairies and farms have a location where they put dead stock while waiting for the rendering plant to come pick them up.
In eastern California where I hunt when I have the time and gas money, they run a lot of sheep on BLM land and I’m talking huge flocks. My best set ever was shooting near a spring that had just had a flock travel through. A half dozen coyotes in less than 3 hours under a full moon. Pure luck on the timing but I had the location in mind already.
Water. Every living creature, even muslims, need water. And like muslims, coyotes know where it’s at or how to find it. If there is no water in the area, there ain’t no coyotes either. Find water and you’ll find coyotes. Something along that subject: A friend of mine lives in the foothills where there’s a few wineries and he was telling me that the wineries have a big problem with coyotes. I puzzled on that for a few seconds until he told me that during the summer the coyotes chew up the drip irrigation lines to drink. Wanna guess where I’m headed this summer after it gets good and hot? You guessed it, I’m going to be talking to winery managers. So don’t think just natural water sources, think irrigation canals, lines, stock tanks, etc.
Coyotes need cover as well where they can lay up during the day. Contrary to popular belief they don’t have dens that they return to every night. The only time they den up is when a female has pups and they’re the only ones you’ll see in the den. Other pack members lay up in the same area, but not in the den. During the winter look for an area that has a south-facing slope so they can catch some of the suns’ warmth. During the heat of the summer look for a north-facing slope where they escape it. Always think slope when scouting. They’re like any other animal and want a place where they can see you before you see them. If it’s flatland where you’re at, look for a brush line or something like that where they can hear you approaching.
So they need food, water and cover. Sounds easy enough…..
When I go to a strange area I do several things. The very first thing I do is check it out using a detailed map. My favorite is my De Lorme road atlas because it shows topographical details, it shows roads, trails and 4WD roads. It shows springs, water tanks and even seasonal streams. Then I go to (get ready, this is my ace in the hole) Google Earth and check it out in living color. Granted, you can’t always get the clarity you want but you would be fucking surprised at how much detail you can see. My atlas doesn’t show stands of trees but G.E. does.
Then I go ask around. I talk to anybody that comes in contact with hunters, fisherman, ranchers, etc, and ask them what they know. That means clerks at the mini-mart, the girl at the hamburger stand, the desk clerk at the motel you’re staying at and the madam at the local whorehouse. Folks like to be asked questions, it makes them feel important especially if they can help. I ask everybody I come in contact with in a new area.
Absolutely for sure ask the guy at the local gun or bait & tackle shop as well as the local ranger if you’re on BLM or Nat’l Forest land.
Once I do my homework and arrive on site, I go in the middle of the day to where I want to hunt and start poking around. I stay near the edges of the area and start looking for sign. I’m looking for tracks and coyote shit and I’m looking for them specifically on trails. Why trails? Because animals are like humans - they’re not going to bust brush if there’s a trail to saunter on down. I look for fresh shit, something shiny, brown and smelly. If all I see is white piles of crap I start thinking of moving on. I look for areas of concealment and depending on the season, the location. If it’s dead in the middle of summer and there’s a slope facing south, I move to the other side where it’s cooler. Remember, if you’re comfortable, so is the coyote.
Wind. I pay hard attention to the godammed wind. And I know that in the mountains and high desert, that shit swirls and swaps direction like a womans’ mind but I try to put the odds in my favor.
Okay. Everything looks good. I’ve done my homework. I’ve talked to people and I’ve listened to what they’ve had to say - where they’ve seen and heard coyotes. I’ve gone to the area and poked around a little looking for sign and found it. What’s next?
Nothing. For the moment, anyways. I go back to my house, motel room or camp and fucking wait until after dark. Take a nap, go over my gear, put fresh batteries in what needs batteries, eat, whatever.
After dark I head back to the area, turn off my motor and sit quiet for a few minutes listening. Then I haul out the best thing since Astro-glide lubricant - a fucking siren. No shit, a siren that I ordered from Fur Harvesters Trading Post. It’s a box about 4”x4” with 2 different pitches of 1964 Mayberry RFD siren that wails out at over 100 decibels. That motherfucker is LOUD.
I turn it on for about 30 seconds (after putting on hearing protection) and then turn it off and listen. I move around the area in several locations until I hear the coyotes howling back to it, and believe me, they do with a vengeance. That’s where I’ll be before first light on my first set of the day.
So, keep in mind food, water, cover, and comfort. Watch the wind. Always watch the fucking wind. Scout the area with your eyes on the ground and your head out of your ass. But most importantly do your homework. If you just drive to an area and jump out and commence to hunting, you may get lucky. If you do your homework and some planning, luck won’t have shit to do with it.
My next post (probably next weekend) is going to concern coyote calling. Maybe. I ain’t made up my mind yet.
PENSACOLA, Fla. – A federal judge declared the Obama administration's health care overhaul unconstitutional Monday, siding with 26 states that sued to block it, saying that people can't be required to buy health insurance.
U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson agreed with the states that the new law violates people's rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties. He went a step further than a previous ruling against the law, declaring the entire thing unconstitutional if the insurance requirement does not hold up.
Suddenly, Washington is consumed with a question too long ignored: Can we safely do business with the Muslim Brotherhood?
The reason this question has taken on such urgency is, of course, because the Muslim Brotherhood (or MB, also known by its Arabic name, the Ikhwan) is poised to emerge as the big winner from the chaos now sweeping North Africa and increasingly likely to bring down the government of the aging Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak.
In the wake of growing turmoil in Egypt, a retinue of pundits, professors and former government officials has publicly insisted that we have nothing to fear from the Ikhwan since it has eschewed violence and embraced democracy.
One reason we might be misperceiving the MB as no threat is because a prime source of information about such matters is the Muslim Brotherhood itself. As the Center for Security Policy’s new, best-selling Team B II report entitled, Shariah: The Threat to America found: “It is now public knowledge that nearly every major Muslim organization in the United States is actually controlled by the MB or a derivative organization. Consequently, most of the Muslim-American groups of any prominence in America are now known to be, as a matter of fact, hostile to the United States and its Constitution.”
JERUSALEM – Israel's prime minister said Monday his country's primary concern in Egypt is that the current crisis could create a void in which Islamic militants step in and endanger decades of peaceful relations between the two countries.
Speaking at a joint news conference with visiting German chancellor Angela Merkel, Benjamin Netanyahu gave his most detailed assessment yet of the Egyptian unrest that threatens to topple President Hosni Mubarak, Israel's strongest ally in the Arab world.
"In a state of chaos, an organized Islamic group can take over a country. It has happened. It happened in Iran," Netanyahu said. "A takeover of oppressive regimes of extreme Islam violates human rights, grinds them to dust ... and in parallel also pose a terrible danger to peace and stability."
It was Netanyahu's most direct comment about the crisis in Egypt, which has triggered concerns about stability there and elsewhere in the region. Before, Netanyahu said only that he is "anxiously following" the situation, while stressing Israel's commitment to peace with Cairo.
Egypt became the first Arab nation to sign a peace accord with Israel in 1979 and has strictly honored it. Mubarak has close ties to Israeli leaders and has acted as a bridge between Israel and the Palestinians to the broader Arab world.
NEW YORK -- Officials say a New York City undercover investigation at an Arizona gun show found that private sellers didn't always require background checks of buyers.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg's sting operation came weeks after a Tucson shooting that killed six people and injured 13 others.
Officials told The New York Times that undercover investigators were able to buy guns even after telling sellers they probably couldn't pass background checks.
Bloomberg is scheduled to show an undercover video on Monday of illegal firearms sales at the Phoenix gun show last week.
The sting was part of the Bloomberg administration's effort to crack down on illegal gun sales nationwide.
Bloomberg last week urged Congress to make sure the system for background checks on firearms purchases includes the names of everyone prohibited from buying weapons.
What in the fuck are NYPD officers doing in Arizona conducting an investigation about guns? Isn't that federal jurisdiction? Wasn't Bloomberg one of the idiots that condemned Arizona for the immigration law saying that it was a federal problem, not a state issue? Is it possible that what violated New York City's draconian guns laws was perfectly legal in Arizona? And how much to you want to bet that the video will show curios/relics being sold or the video will be of such bad quaility that somebody will have to narrate it to show what's supposedly going on?
On Saturdays the local paper prints the mugshots of all the car thieves that were arrested the previous week.
I get a kick out them - there's some seriously tweeked out people there.
Here's my favorite one this week.
I'm curious though as to who delivered that ass-whipping? Was it the owner of the car that caught him in the act or the police that arrested him?
Not that it makes much difference - he's regretting that more than the 6 months probabtion he'll get for car thrft.
Eric sent me a copy of his letterhead and information about his organization that helps ill children to realize a dream. I tried to convert the letterhead to download here but I must be doing something wrong because I can't post the picture to save my life.

Spam Text Message Likely Blew Up Suicide Bomber In Her Moscow Apartment
A suicide bomber planning an attack in Moscow on New Year's Eve was killed in her apartment when her bomb was prematurely detonated by an unexpected text message.
According to Russian security sources, the text message -- a remote trigger for a cell phone belt bomb -- wished her a happy new year, accidentally setting off the blast. The accident may have saved hundreds of lives, these officials believe, as the woman intended to use the bomb in a suicide attack near Red Square later that night.
The woman is believed to be part of the same group that struck Moscow's Domodedovo airport on Monday, killing at least 35 people and wounding another 100. Officials haven't directly said who they believe is behind the terrorist attacks, but anonymous sources have pointed to Islamic North Caucasus rebels, which have been in conflict with the Russian state for over a decade.
Cell phones have become a remote detonator of choice for terrorist groups the world over.
So I'm having a few beers tonight and I run a little short so me and CharlieGodammit wander down to the local 7-11 to score another six pack.
Okay. I can deal with homeless folks spending their canning and panhandling cash on lottery tickets hoping to win it big. I can deal with drunks (like me) that are a few cents short and arguing with the hardworking Sikh clerk. I can even deal with the tweeker that thinks he's god and deserves a break on refried beans, but what I have a hard time dealing with is the well dressed lady driving a Lexus that is arguing with Mr. Singh over the price of a single motherfucking banana at 11 PM.
I mean, who in the fuck buys a banana at a 7-11 at 11 PM? Especially when Suzie's Sex Shop is only 2 blocks down the road? Or when you can buy a cucumber with bumps on it (for your pleasure) at the Savemart only 4 blocks down the road?
Are you serious? You're lucky CharlieGodammit didn't bite your stupid ass on the way out.
For the best hands down no bullshit fucking A weather report for your area go to: http://www.conlinsupply.biz/
Click on the weather link, enter your zip code and there you have it.
It'll give all the detailed (serious fucking details, too) weather information anybody needs to know be you rancher, farmer, hunter or city boy.
And oh yeah, see if they have a feed-n-seed near you.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama issued a plea for restraint in Egypt after meeting with national security aides Saturday to assess the Cairo government's response to widespread protests threatening the stability of the country.
A White House statement said Obama "reiterated our focus on opposing violence and calling for restraint, supporting universal rights, andsupporting concrete steps that advance political reform within Egypt."
Supporting political reform in Egypt? Hey Fuckhead, Egypt is the only arab ally that Israel has had since Anwar Sadat implemented the treaty and you're supporting political reform? You do know that the party that's likely to come to power is a branch of Hamas, right? What about our ally and friend, Israel? You're showing your true muslim colors, motherfucker.
Like most men, one of my least favorite things to do is shop unless it's at the BassPro or someplace like that.
When I go to the store I go with list in hand and a plan of attack so I will spend the absolute least amount of time in there that I can.
This thing I hear about grocery stores being a great place to pick up women? Uh-uh. Not me. Not usually, anyways. But today...... Today I'm in the store to buy fruit to dry and I'm standing there looking at 4 (no shit, four) different kinds of pears, all the same price, when I realize that somebody is next to me. Being the polite motherfucker I am, I say "Sorry 'bout that, I didn't mean to be in your way." Then I turn to see this very attractive woman standing there who says, "Oh! You're not in my way. I'm having the same problem you seem to be having."
Bam! The fruit decisions go out the window but to keep the conversation going I keep talking about it and mention that I'm drying the fruit because it's a healthy snack blah blah blah, all the while thinking she's awful damned cute AND friendly and she ain't wearing a ring or a bra and she looks to be just a little younger than me and and and and then she says "Well, pears are a good choice because they're full of fiber and at your age......"
Fucking bitch, I hope you get run over in the parking lot.
So I'm coming home the other day and I get a phone call from a Portagee lady with a real heavy accent saying her dairy is overrun with kayates, they've been scarfing her chickens, she was pissed as hell and that she needed a wolfer to come clear them out.
Okay, it's the first time I've ever been called a wolfer, but she has 300 acres with coyotes so she can call me her li'l bitch if she wants.
I drive the 40 miles north and get there about 10 this morning to check her property out. It's dairy up front and fields in the back. 275 motherfucking acres of field that has just been cut for silage.
After she shows me around and I make friends with the resident dogs, I grab my shotgun and rifle and wander around looking at the tracks in the mud and fields. She wasn't lying. Tracks were everywhere and at least one of the kayates was huge - I swear, its' track was as long as my index finger. None of her dogs was that big, so either it was a monster kayate or she has a feral dog running with the pack.
Anyways, I made a couple of sets with no luck (middle of the day kayate hunting sucks) and then her husband Manual pulls up and tells me to choot dem dam kayates, he's tired of hearing Rosa bitch about her chickens. Told me to come early in the morning, they sit up on his silage pile and watch him work.
Okay, I went home and took care of some shit, then got bored and drove back out there around dusk. I parked near the truck scales because that was the only lit area around, grabbed my shotgun and headed out to do a couple of sets on a brushline, leaving my rifle in the open gun case in the back of the truck. I didn't see or hear shit - no big thing, Manuel told me it was an early morning trip.
After it got so fucking dark and foggy I couldn't see, I headed back up to the truck. Okay. It doesn't bother me a bit to get skunked, it happens all the time. And I've been in a slump anyways. No big deal. But what pisses me the fuck off is when I got within sight of the truck, I look up and there's a motherfucking kayate in the back of the truck taking a piss on my kayate rifle. IN THE BACK OF MY TRUCK!!!!!!
And what makes it worse is that I'm loaded with buckshot so dropping him there wasn't an option. Then the little bastard flipped me a bird, jumped out keeping himself between me and the herd and then wandered nonchalantly through the corral, laughing his ass off.
And they wonder why nobody has any faith in the judicial system anymore.
(CNN) -- The Illinois Supreme Court ruled Thursday that former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel met residency requirements and that his name will stay on the mayoral ballot in Chicago.
The justices said Emanuel's opponents did not prove that he had given up residency when he served in the Obama administration in Washington.
"Given the record before us, it is simply not possible to find clearly erroneous the (Chicago Board of Elections') determination that the objectors failed to prove that the candidate had abandoned his Chicago residence," the court ruled in a unanimous decision.
.....the objectors failed to prove that the candidate had abandoned his Chicago residence.....
How about the fact that the motherfucker DIDN'T LIVE THERE FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS?????
His opponents couldn't prove that? All they had to do was produce 1 fucking utilty bill in his name in DC or wherever he was living. Did he have a privately owned vehicle that was registered in the DC area? Could they not come up with a neighbor that could testify that he spent the majority of his nights in the DC area?
Fuck, maybe they should've hired me to prove that he wasn't a Shitcago resident.
WASHINGTON -- It's a striking statistic.
Without President Barack Obama's health care law, as many as 129 million Americans - half of those under age 65 - could be denied coverage or charged more because of a pre-existing medical condition.
The new estimate by the Health and Human Services Department is more than twice as high as a figure that supporters of the law were using last year.

The new estimate by the HHS Department is more than twice as high as a figure that supporters of the law were using last year.
It just might need an asterisk.
Most of those millions of people are covered by health insurance at work and don't face any immediate risk of being denied care for their pre-existing medical problems. And as a rule, those who take a new job and sign up in their employer's health plan are already protected by a 1990s law.
"It's a hypothetical situation, not an actual situation," said economist Paul Ginsburg, president of the Center for Studying Health System Change. "Most of these people don't have a problem, with or without health reform, because they get their coverage through their employment, and employer coverage takes everybody." The center is a nonpartisan research organization.
He's a Muslim extremist. Witness his disastrous Cairo speech, in which he toadied to the worst elements of Islam—and betrayed the moderate elements—a) by referring to the 9/11 killers not as "terrorists," but as "violent extremists"; b) by pandering to the notion that there is an Islamic global community ("Ummah") set apart from the rest of the world; c) by apologizing on the West's behalf for the (defensive) Crusades; and d) by announcing that it wasn't the business of the United States to decide which countries can and can't have nuclear weapons (so go right ahead, Mister Ahmadinejad).... Oh—did anyone mention this before?—and his middle name is Hussein, and he made one of NASA's top priorities an outreach program to make Muslims feel good about Islam's alleged contributions to science.
So tonight I tried something new.
I tried taking CharlieGodammits' rawhide chew toy away while sticking my finger up his ass.
Guess which one he objected to the most?
Okay, either you're a bunch of sick motherfuckers or you don't know mean-ass dogs that well.
But damn, how many of you actually read down far enough to read the answer?
I'm sorely disappointed that y'all don't know dogs........
The counter-terror force, rarely seen on the streets, took up positions in strategic locations, including central Tahrir Square, site of the biggest demonstrations this week.
Facebook and Twitter have helped drive this week's protests. But by Thursday evening, those sites were disrupted, along with cell phone text messaging and BlackBerry Messenger services. Then the Internet went down.
I can honestly see this happening here soon, especially after that fucking punk Obama mentioned something about "investing" in the telecommunications industry, a not-so-gentle hint that he's trying to take the internet over. You know what? Maybe we should listen to the folks with ham radio blogs. Seriously, let's give them a read. Maybe we should all invest in an inexpensive pair of 2 way radios to stay in touch with your loved ones when all of a sudden you can't dial out. Lets get our Go-Bags and shit together. Better to have and not need than to need and not have. Fuck Obama.
We may have been worrying about the muslim threat to our way of life for nothing.
First the government in Tunisia is overthrown, then there's "unrest" in Egypt and now there's been protests in the streets in Yemen.
Maybe with a little luck the entire arab mid-East will implode.
