Smile, everybody!

Mother may I?


















Saw this over at Curtis Lowe and had to steal it.

STAY OUT OF MY GARDEN, DAMMIT!!!!!!

Again, he shows he thinks he's above the law.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama decided he could continue the air war in Libya without congressional approval despite rulings to the contrary from Justice Department and Pentagon lawyers, according to published reports.
The president relied instead on the opinions of other senior administration lawyers that continuing U.S. participation in the air operations against the regime of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi did not constitute "hostilities," triggering the need for Congressional permission under the War Powers Resolution, the New York Times reported in its online edition Friday night.
Among those reported to support the president's action were White House counsel Robert Bauer and State Department legal adviser Harold H. Koh, the paper said. Those opposed included Pentagon General Counsel Jeh C. Johnson and acting head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel Caroline D. Krass.
One issue was reported to be whether firing missiles from drones amounted to hostilities.
Presidents can ignore the advice of the Office of Legal Counsel, but rarely do so, the newspaper reported.
The 1973 law prohibits the military from being involved in actions for more than 60 days without congressional authorization, plus a 30-day extension. The 60-day deadline passed last month with the White House saying it is in compliance with the law. The 90-day mark is Sunday.

*****

Yeah, so a lawyer that never practiced law or even wrote a single brief decided that he can over rule our laws on the word of his advisors.
And on the issue of missles being fired from drones being considered hostile? I'd imagine if you were on the recieving end of those missiles you'd consider them to be pretty damned hostile.
The fact of the matter is that when he started this shit he promised that it would last "days, not weeks" and now it's approaching the 90 day mark.
Another promise made, another promise broken.

Michelle Obama aiming to inspire African youth

WASHINGTON -- Michelle Obama is fond of saying there's no magic to her being first lady.
She didn't come from a wealthy or well-connected family. She came from the South Side of Chicago and is a descendant of slaves. But she says it's a passion for an education that she and President Barack Obama shared and a willingness to work hard that helped them become successful.
It's a message that young leaders in Africa soon will hear when Mrs. Obama makes her second solo trip abroad as first lady, visiting South Africa and Botswana this coming week.
"In so many ways, I see myself in you all. And I want you to see yourselves in me," she recently told Washington high school students, hoping to inspire them with her personal story.
The weeklong visit, beginning with the first lady's arrival Monday in Johannesburg, is intended to improve relations between the U.S. and Africa and promote youth engagement, education, health and wellness. In the centerpiece speech of the trip, she will appear Wednesday before a U.S.-sponsored forum of young women leaders from sub-Saharan Africa.

Yeah, I guess none of us expected her to inspire Appalachian WHITE Youth, did we? Not that they'd listen to a fucking thing she had to say.......

Father of the Year

"Daddy, what's that thing in your hand?"
"That's a penis, baby."
"Will I ever have a penis, Daddy?"
"As soon as we get home......."

Just sayin'........

When asked in a recent survey, 90 per cent of American men responded that their most memorable and joyous moment in life was being present at the birth of their first-born child. Obviously none of them have ever seen an illegal alien getting run over crossing the freeway.....

That'll teach you, ya stupid fucker.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A convicted killer who was out on parole is accused of shooting and critically wounding a northern Arkansas mayor who had written a letter in support of his release from prison.
Everton Mayor Bill Gerdes was in critical condition at a hospital in Springfield, Mo., after he was shot in the back and left hand Wednesday night.
Authorities arrested Justin Bates around midnight Wednesday after an hourslong standoff outside his father's home in Everton. Boone County Sheriff Danny Hickman said Bates, 35, faces a count of attempted capital murder and a firearms charge.
He's being held at the county jail on $1 million bond. He does not have an attorney yet, Hickman said.
Nearly five years ago, when Bates became eligible for parole in a second-degree murder case, Gerdes wrote to authorities on Bates' behalf.
"Having visited him during his incarceration from time to time I have noticed his progress and a change of atitude, espepecially the last 2 years," Gerdes wrote in an August 2006 letter obtained by The Associated Press. "I think him and his outlook on life have changed a lot for the better."
Bates was released on parole in September 2010 and had not encountered any problems until the alleged shooting, community correction spokeswoman Rhonda Sharp said. He and the mayor "had a good relationship," Hickman said.
Authorities say they do not let know what led to the Gerdes' shooting. Hickman said Bates was drunk when authorities took him into custody. No one administered a breathalyzer test.
"We're still investigating the motive," Hickman said.

Yeah.

Yeah, let's open those borders

So your neighborhood will look like this:

Hang on Sloopy

Man, it's been a hell of a week.
I cannot believe how fucking tired I am when I get home but it seems like the older I get the more often it happens.
Every time I get home and start remembering what a fucked up day I had, I have to remind myself that it could be worse - I ain't bleeding, I'm still breathing and I ain't locked up.
One more day, one more day, one more day.......

To my visitor from Hanoi, Vietnam:

Hey, give us back our MIAs, you sorry motherfuckers!

Packs and shit

I never have been a survivalist per se and never saw the need to become a prepper until the past few months but being into the hunting, shooting, reloading and camping shit I was brought up with, I've had all the gear necessary to survive for a week or three or four but I really never kept it together in one place ready to grab and run.
But with politics and the economy being what they are nowadays (not to mention natural or man-made disasters) I got to thinking about things and have been buying a little at a time and put together a "git kit", something that will keep my fat Okie ass going for a while.
I've scored a medium ALICE pack, an Austrian (I think) ruck and of course I had my civilian backpack that I got 25 years ago. But each has their drawbacks. The Austrian ruck is made of canvas and is fairly quiet in the brush and very durable but it's just a bit too small for the shit I want to carry and there's no frame. The ALICE has a frame and is large enough, but I broke my back in my 20s and never found out for years and there's a small hump below my shoulder blades that the frame rubs against. My civilian pack has a frame but is way too lightweight to last. Besides, it's a bright blue.
The other day I was prowling through my garage and ran across a pack that I bought to carry for overnight coyote hunts and tossed aside when I realized it was way bigger than what I bought it for.
The motherfucker is perfect. It has 4 outside pockets for shit I need in a hurry, a roomy interior, an interior frame, is camouflaged (Realtree), rugged, sits well on my back, waterproof, and best of all cost me about 30 bucks at Big 5 Sporting Goods.
No shit.

Oh, HELL YEAH!!!!!

Yeah, you got a point there, Duckman.

I was talking with Duckman at work today about ordering shit online and telling him I realized I had a problen when I had my credit card number, security code and expiration date memorized.
He just laughed and said "Wait until you come home one day and find the Fedex and UPS drivers fighting over a parking spot in front of your house because your packages are too heavy to walk to your porch."
Fuuuuuck, I ain't THAT far gone yet.

Yeah. So?

Why I prefer a monopod over a bipod

This video is from Todd "Dogbreath" Sullivan, somebody that puts out some outstanding coyote calls, but on his site you'll also find a free downloadable guide to hunting coyotes for beginners and he'll also send along videos with tips occasionally. This is one of them:

http://www.dogbreathcoyotecalls.com/dogbreath-recommends/

I own one of the Primos monopods he's got there and prefer it 9 times out of 10 over my Harris bipod for the reasons he mentions and demonstrates.
The only clear advantage the bipod has is that you don't have to lay your rifle across your lap if you're digging out another call or glassing an area.
What you can't do with a bipod that you can with a Triggerstick is use it as a walking and wading stick - the one I have extends to about 5' 9" and is perfectly suited for those purposes.

Anyways, watch the short video and as long as you're on his site, buy something and tell him I sent you. He won't give you a discount (although I think he's offering free shipping at the moment) but he might give me one for kicking some business his way.
Seriously, he does put out some outrageous coyote calls and he's a hell of a nice guy.

Oh yeah. Every mans' Dream Woman.

To quote The Dutchman - "An MBA grad from Villanova?"

And now from me - How much you wanna bet she fucked for grades?
I wonder how she'd react if she saw me run over that cat last week?
I used to have an Evil Cat named Winchester who's favorite thing to do was fight racoons. Motherfucker was so badass that I couldn't get within 10 feet of it, had to carry pepper spray anytime I went out into the pasture nearest the house.
I wish this girl would've tried to hug him......

OBAMA SCREAMS AT STAFF: “What the F**k Was That?” After Netanyahu Meeting

Now we know the rest of the story… Obama went into a rage after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectured him on his suicide plan for Israel.
NewsFavor reported, via Doug Ross:
Shortly after the photo-op meeting and “working lunch” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the one that saw President Obama openly chastised by the Prime Minister for Obama’s earlier public comments regarding wanting to see Israel return to its 1967 borders, the president verbally “went off” on Richard Daley in the private study area that adjoins the Oval Office. President Obama’s verbal attack was clearly heard by numerous staff up and down the West Wing hallways.
The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly, “What the f-ck was that!?” That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again! Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.
Daley was soon after seen walking slowly down the hallway back toward his own office. He appeared “unconcerned” and was walking alone. His mood was apparently good enough that he took the time to speak briefly with some junior staffers before continuing down the hall. There was no sign of the president, though Valerie Jarrett did make an appearance on her way into the Oval Office. This was viewed as somewhat of a rare thing as Jarrett has apparently not been seen much on the lower levels of the West Wing for the last month or so. Neither she nor the president was seen for some time after that.

BEIJING -- More than 600 people, including 103 children, have been sickened in China's latest case of mass lead poisoning, state media reported Sunday.
China has suffered widespread problems in recent years from heavy metal contamination, with thousands of children affected by lead poisoning in several provinces in 2009 and 2010 because they lived near metal smelters or battery factories.
The victims in the latest case were workers and their children in 25 family-run tinfoil processing workshops in Yangxunqiao town in Zhejiang province in eastern China, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. 

You know not of which you speak

RENO, Nev. -- Critics of Nevada's first black bear hunt are worried that with hunters and hikers near Lake Tahoe sharing the same woods, it won't only be bears that get shot.
"Someone could be out hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail with their family and along comes a pack of dogs running across the trail, followed by a guy who comes along with a gun. It's a whole different atmosphere," said Madonna Dunbar, resource conservationist for the Incline Village General Improvement District on the lake's north shore.
"People are really concerned there will be an accident and someone will get killed," she said in an interview with The Associated Press.
State wildlife officials have issued 45 licenses and say hunters will be trained so they know where it is safe to shoot, but opponents worried for the safety of tourists and residents have taken their concerns to court.

Ummm, Miss Dunbar? May I say something?
A pack of hounds, for the most part, are making a lot of noise when they're trailing something - you know, baying, crashing through brush, that sort of thing.
How about you and your tourists stay the hell out of the way when you hear that sort of thing and not interfere with or obstruct a legal and lawful hunt, which by the way is illegal in Nevada.
And folks that are commited enough to a sport to own a pack of hounds generally are very experienced hunters and know enough to not shoot tourists.
Oh wait, I almost forgot - anybody that lives within 500 miles of Tahoe have read about your huge overpopulation of bears that wander through residential areas raiding trash cans and generally being a pain in the ass because they have no fear of Man or dogs. I guarantee you that hunting will cure that shit real quick.

DON'T TAZE ME, BRO!

PELHAM, N.H. (CBS) - Pelham police say they were justified in using a Taser several times on a cow, despite a complaint from its owner.
Last Saturday, one of Wendy Bordeleau’s two cows got loose from her 30-acre farm.

About a dozen people were trying to coral 800-pound Houdini across busy Mammoth Road when police showed up with their tasers.

"They said ‘We’re going to tase her, we’re going to taser it,’ and the group was pleading with them. Everyone was kinda yelling, ‘Please don’t taser the cow, it’s only going to make it worse,” she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.
Houdini was zapped at least four times.

*****

Okay, seeing as the cows' name was Houdini I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this wasn't her first escape. In that case, police were justified in using a taser, then calling in SWAT for backup for a spray-n-pray takedown if the taser didn't work.
Jeez, hasn't anybody up there heard of a rope?
