Damn! No slack at all......

In short, these people, with Barack Obama first among them, are arch-criminals. Obama himself is one of the greatest criminals in all of human history. He has illegally usurped the single most powerful office on the planet. He has illegally and fraudulently insinuated himself into the office of Chief Executive of the largest, most powerful economy in all of human history by orders of magnitude, an economy so large and so powerful that its inevitable collapse will affect nearly every person on the planet in a tangibly negative way. He has also criminally commandeered the most powerful military force the world has ever known – also by orders of magnitude. He has hijacked a military arsenal that has the capacity to kill most of the people on this planet. He has also used his criminally-acquired power to destabilize an entire region and culture and foment what will probably become the first truly nuclear world war, centered on Israel and Iran, in which the death toll will be ultimately counted in the hundreds of millions. The scope of this crime is so large that it is difficult for the human mind to grasp it.

700 arrested after protest on NY's Brooklyn Bridge

NEW YORK (AP) — More than 700 protesters demonstrating against corporate greed, global warming and social inequality, among other grievances, were arrested Saturday after they swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and shut down a lane of traffic for several hours in a tense confrontation with police.
The group Occupy Wall Street has been camped out in a plaza in Manhattan's Financial District for nearly two weeks staging various marches, and had orchestrated an impromptu trek to Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon. They walked in thick rows on the sidewalk up to the bridge, where some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway, police said.
The majority of those arrested were given citations for disorderly conduct and were released, police said.

Movie reviews

I'm falling behind in my reviews so I'm going to do a couple for you real quick.

"We Were Soldiers"
Saw that one last weekend for about the 5th time. Great movie, true story, lots of folks died - good from a theatrical standpoint, not so good in real life - tons of heroics and great acting.
On a personal level, Ia Drang was my Pops' first battle on his first tour in Vietnam, so I've been hearing about his views as a foot soldier all my life. This movie was the first time I saw the battle from a command standpoint, the overall view, you know?
And sadly enough, the battle took place on 14 November, my mothers' birthday and that's fucked up because that day will always be 1965 to Pops, not his wifes' birthday.
Anyways, great movie. I'll watch it again and again.

"Burlesque"
Saw that one earlier this week because Lisa wanted me to hear Christine Aquileras' voice and she knows I won't listen to pop.
Chick flick, starring Christine Aquilera and Cher. Christine plays Allie, a small town girl that runs off to LA to hit the big time. Cher plays Tess, the owner of the burlesque theater that she gets a job at.
There's some story line where Allie is fucking the bartender and Tess is having money problems and may lose the place. There's also a couple of gay dudes in there so I'm sure there was some buggery going on but I don't know, I lost interest about 15 minutes into the movie and got online but could hear what was going on and Lisa wasn't lying - that girl can flat out sing some torch music. Great set of lungs.

"Annie"
Lisa's watching that one right now and I didn't even make it through the opening credits. Thank God for iTunes, ear buds and Willies' "Redheaded Stranger".

Fun and games at the 99 Cent store

Rounding the corner today at the 99 Cent store today loaded down with an armful of rawhide bones for CharlieGodammit (we buy them 10 at a time) I damned near ran into an arab muslim couple with their headgear and arrogant attitude.
"HEY LISA, I SHOULDA WORE MY 'INFIDEL' T-SHIRT!!! WE GOT US SOME MUSLIMS UP IN THIS MOTHERFUCKER TODAY!!!!"
Lisa, 3 aisles over, just smiled and winked. Gotta love a women that can tolerate me, you know?
The muslim dogs weren't nearly as tolerant, though. They shot me a dirty look and started muttering in some foreign tongue. I'll probably be beheaded or have a car bomb go off outside the house tonight.
But no, if I'd been anyplace but the 99 Cent store or Walmart, I wouldn't have used that language that loudly - Walmart because nobody in there speaks enough english to get offended and the 99 Cent store is...... well, the 99 Cent store.

You only love me for my camel toe

I was fucking around today and put up a new gadget - "10 most popular posts" on my sidebar and it proves what I've been telling y'all all along.
And I guarentee you that 90% of those hits came from a "devout" muslim nation, you know countries like Turkey, United Arab Emerates, Lebanon, France, etc.
The one titled "Mohammed sucks pigs"? It was originally titled "She loves her job, the little slut" but I got so many fucking hits on it from muslim countries using the key words "horse fuck woman" (according to sitemeter) that I just changed the title to piss 'em off. Now they have to commit blasphemy or whatever they call it to get their rocks off.
Fuck 'em.

I've got the thing set to All-time favorites for now but I'll change it over to weekly here soon.

Sock mystery solved, Sasquatch next

Let me start this off by explaining that I don't wear bargain flea market socks. My work socks run anywhere from $4-$8 a pair. Seriously, I got no problem wearing a raggedy-ass pair of Wranglers and a $2 thrift store t-shirt to work (see the picture in the post from last night) but I need- want- gotta have my soft socks. I work on my feet all day and that's the one creature comfort (aside from my Camouflage Bass Pro Easy Chair) that I insist on. Comfort for my feet during the day and comfort for my back in the evening.
Anyways, I had a fucking pile of work socks when Lisa moved in but the other day I noticed that I had about half of what I used to have. Now there's normal attrition from them wearing out or CharlieGodammit occasionally snatching one for his entertainment, but this was ridiculous. I must be missing 10 or 12 pairs and I know I ain't wearing them out that fast and I'm not finding them in CGDs' yard. Lisa does laundry every couple of days, so they're not sitting in the hamper, so what in the fuck is that woman doing with them? Is she putting them in a different spot without telling me?
Then last night I took my boots and socks off when I came in from work and headed back to the mud porch to put them in the hamper while carrying on a conversation with my sweetie. I walked back, opened up the garbage can lid and flipped them inside and got 2 steps away before I realized what I did.
Aha!
Now I'm wondering how many homeless people are wandering around wearing socks that are more expensive than everything else they have on..........

That hound's not too smart, is he?

In an unusual role reversal, a fox was spotted trailing a beagle in a forest near Montreal, Canada. The odd fox behavior was an effort to protect four newborn fox cubs nearby.

Rpm2day

While your friend's out there taking care of the pig problem, have him inquire about damage to the irrigation lines. If there is any, let them know they probably have a coyote problem - coyotes will chew them to get water - and offer to "help" out, for free of course.
Vineyard hunting is like orchard hunting - your field of fire is extremely limited, mostly shotgun work for sure. For something like that, do some preliminary scouting using Google Earth and find the access and maintenance roads, pump stations, shit like that, then maybe plan your shoot on those instead of actually inside the vineyard. Google Earth will also help you locate any outbuildings so you don't pepper them by mistake.

CharlieGodammit gettin' a nut-rubbin'

Well, it would be a nut-rubbin' if he had gonads instead of nonads.
He does look like he's thoroughly enjoying himself, doesn't he?
He burns through one of those rawhide bones in a couple of hours, so he's got about a 10 bone-a-week monkey on his back. But when he's got a chew in his mouth, my arm's getting a break.

Up close coyote hunting

While a coyote is not a grizzly or dangerous game, it definitely gets the hunter’s heart rate up when those yellow eyes appear at 20 yards.

by Kevin Tate
close coyote huntingHunting close to the cover and close to the breeze, watching downwind while listening for telltale footsteps from behind, a coyote hunter east of the Mississippi is likely to find himself playing this game very close to the vest indeed. No matter what the terrain or locale, calling to a predator creates an interactive element, and gives the hunter the definite sense that it’s him who is being hunted. While a coyote is not a grizzly or dangerous game, it definitely gets the hunter’s heart rate up when those yellow eyes appear at 20 yards, looking for the source of those sounds with a meal on its mind. It’s not always a long-distance game.
The added measure of challenge found in working smaller spaces can mean far more in the way of benefits than difficulties. Since you’re calling to coyotes that may well be within a couple hundred yards at the outset, a quiet approach to your setup and the direction of the wind become vitally important. Your choice of firearm and optics may be impacted, and your likely time spent calling effectively per setup may be shortened. On the other hand, the number and variety of set ups available to you within a given area may well be greatly increased. This benefit alone is well worth the added difficulty.
One of the happy consequences of hunting tight places is the opportunity to change calling locations without changing zip codes. It’s still necessary to move a mile or so, but in a tight places hunt, it’s very possible to have several choices of terrain and set up within a mile. Among those choices will be those best hunted on a south wind, a north wind, a swirling wind, some early, some late and so on.

Location, Location, Location

Consider possible locations for a tight-spaces coyote hunt from the same perspective you’d use in choosing a deer stand location. Depending on the wind, you’ll first need to know the direction from which you can best approach. Next, consider the location of the cover where the coyotes are most likely holding in relation to the planned field of fire and to the cover in which you plan to hide and call.
East of the Mississippi, most coyote hunts are conducted in and around evidence of man’s impact on the environment. Fence rows, pastures and power lines surround woodlots and croplands. Abandoned barns, derelict farmhouses, stands of young planted pine and land in the crop rotation program or CRP all hold rabbits, mice and countless other forms of coyote food. They also offer shelter for dens and cover.
Here again, the lay of the land offers both punishment and reward. When the coyotes you intend to call may be bedded within a hundred yards of where you intend to set up, a quiet approach unimpeded by wind direction is essential.
Upon arriving at your spot, getting squared away quietly is a must. While you still want to be adequately hidden, cracking and popping limbs to make a quick blind isn’t a good choice. That’s where excellent camouflage patterns like Mossy Oak Break-Up, Mossy Oak Obsession or Mossy Oak Brush come in handy. These let a hunter disappear into virtually any background, allowing him to focus on choosing a spot where he can 1) see the area he’s calling, 2) be comfortable and 3) make any shot likely to be presented.

Don’t Play It Again, Sam

close coyote huntingEven with the easy availability and quick access afforded by a variety of handy hunting locations, working the same spots over and over again is a problem. Coyotes are quick learners and easily become call shy or call wise. By taking care to keep your calling volumes to a minimum, your sequence lengths to a reasonable level and your calling variety spread to a maximum, you’ll keep your best hunting spots fresher longer. For Charles McLean, who has pursued coyotes as many as 100 days per year in the past, that variety is a big part of the attraction of the hunt. “I try to keep track of what calls I’ve used in what locations, so that when I go back I’ll be prepared to use something different, “he said.
On any given day at any given time, coyotes well within earshot of your calls may simply be unwilling to play the game. They may be thoroughly fed, thoroughly tired or just thoroughly uninterested. If you don’t educate them to your intent with a serenade that is too long or too loud though, you may well be able to bring them to the dance next time around. By being able to reproduce a wide variety of sounds a wide variety of ways, you’ll find you’re able to interest and bring in more coyotes.
As far as call quality goes, McLean says he’s killed as many coyotes with curiosity as anything else. “I’ve had lots of success with a lot of different kinds of calls,” he said. “I think they’re inquisitive a lot of times and if they hear something in distress they’ll come to see what it is, no matter what the calling sounds exactly like.”

Lock And Load

Just like the other techniques specific to the game, the choice of firearm can be affected by the close quarters common in a tight spaces coyote hunt. For McLean, it boils down to a choice of optics. For other veterans of the game, it involves a more complex strategy.“I usually like to have at least 50 or 100 yards or better to see and call in,” McLean said, “but pretty often I’ve worked with a lot less. They can come out running wide open and you need to have some room to get on them. My favorite rifle has a 6.5x20 Leupold on it and even that’s too much some times.”
An avid shooter, hunter and handloader, McLean stresses an individual shooter’s comfort with the firearm of choice, rather than that firearm’s specific caliber, is the more important consideration. On an often-close, likely-running target that is more about shooting than aiming, a tight-spaces coyote hunter’s firearm needs to be one with which he’s very familiar.
“I’ve shot them with everything from a .223 to a .300 Remington UltraMag with ballistic tip bullets,” McLean said. “Anything from a .22 magnum up is sufficient. I would not go with a 7mm magnum intentionally, but if that were all I had to go with, I wouldn’t let that keep me from going. Whatever you’re confident with that’s sufficient to do the job is the best thing to use.”
For Mossy Oak VP Carsie Young, a multi-shooter strategy has proven to work best. “Normally what we would do is, somebody would have a .22-250 or a .220 Swift, something that could reliably be shot 300 yards with a big scope,” Young said. “Then the next rifle would be a .223 with a mid-range scope, then the third would be a shotgunner with No. 2s or BBs. In that set-up, the shotgun is probably going to get about 50% of the shots, and the two rifles split the other half.”
For Young and his hunting companions, that’s a strategy that’s paid off surprisingly often. “I remember one hunt in particular,” Young said. “I had a .220 Swift and I was looking out over a 70-acre field that was cut low enough that I would see anything coming. My partner was on a shotgun looking over a two-acre field that had grass maybe knee high. We called a while and the first indication I had that a coyote was anywhere around was when my partner shot one that appeared 20 feet off the end of his gun barrel. They’re bad sneaky, and they know how to use every tool to their advantage.”
Ultimately, like any outdoor sport, the game is what you make of it. When the urge to hit the woods strikes, the who, what, where and how become secondary concerns for McLean, Young and other veterans. “When I want to go I’m going to go,” McLean said.
By always being responsible hunters and by keeping the particulars of the game in mind, we all have plenty of opportunities to find coyotes in tight spaces.

*****

Notice the first list where it mentions Modesto, Stockton, and Merced Kalifornia?
I live in Modesto and Stockton is 30 miles north, Merced 30 miles south and I'm here to tell you that 16-17% unemployment is flat out bullshit. It's closer to 25%. Motherfuckers don't count how many peoples' unemployment checks have run out or how many folks took an early retirement becasue they couldn't find work. All they acknowledge is the amount of people that are drawing unemployment or welfare checks.

What's sad is those three cities are right in the middle of one of the richest agricultural lands in the country. Work has always been fairly seasonal but when I was dick high to a hound dog, the canneries ran 8-9 months out of the year, canning peaches, cots, cherries, pears, tomatoes, beans and asparagus, among others. You could always tell what month it was by the wonderful smells all over town and the colors of the stains on your ma or grannys' work smock. There was Spreckles Sugar in Manteca that turned a huge amount of sugar beets into sugar.
Melons. Fuck, you name the variety, it was grown here in the valley.
And we can't forget the almonds and walnuts here. The almond harvest here is measured in the millions of pounds here, but nuts really take a miminum of people to harvest and process.
Then there's the dairies - thousands of dairies up and down the valley. Maybe that's why this place is so fucking hot - all them cow farts melted the ozone layer.
Corn here is harvested 3 times a year and alfalfa gets 7 cuttings a year. That's a lot of fucking silage, man.
The canneries employed a huge amount of this areas' population for the majority of the year as did Spreckles and Merced had Castle AFB which was Merceds' main reason for hanging on as long as it did. That air base employed damned near everybody in Merced at one time or the other.
So what's up with all that unemployment?
The main problem in my eyes was the water went away and with the water went the crops.
The fucking hippies had the irrigation water cut so that some fish (probably a little bitty fucker, too) native to Kalifornia wouldn't go extinct.
There are entire corporate farms of thousands of acres on the west side of the valley that have been fallow and idle for several years now because they can't get the water to that fertile soil. The Green fuckers turned the place back into the fucking desert it was 100 years ago all over some damned fish.
No water, no crops, no canneries. When I was a kid, there were about a million of those fuckers running 24 hours a day in the summer and fall, a short run in the spring and closed in the winter. People would work 9 months a year (60+ hours a week) and draw unemployment for 3 or 4 months. It was a good life, I don't ever anybody every doing without. But now, I can think of 4 canneries in the area now and they only work maybe 3 or 4 months a year and they only can tomatoes and peaches. Maybe some cots, I can't remember for sure.
In Manteca, Spreckles shut down and would've really fucked that place up if it hadn't turned into a bedroom community for the Fucking Bay Area, 70 miles to the west.
Merced took a serious buttfucking when Billary cut defense spending and closed Castle AFB down along with a shitload of other vital military bases and posts. That place nearly fucking died. The Feds built a prison there but it doesn't employ but a small fraction that Castle did.
And finally Stockton...... Stockton has always been a shithole, overrun with gangs and welfare families. A 16% unemployment rate for Stockton isn't a bit unusual even when the economy is booming.

If I decide to vote for Cain, will I still be a racist?

The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.
“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”

If God didn't intend for us to eat animals, why did he make them to taste like meat?
















(Daily Mail) — They are well known for their shocking adverts with some of the world’s most famous people posing naked to help boost their animal rights message.
But this time PETA may have gone too far with its latest campaign, which suggests those who swim or fish in waters containing sharks are attacked or killed as ‘payback’.
The new poster shows a shark eating a severed human leg and the blood-stained slogan ‘Payback is Hell’, which aims to shock people into turning vegan.
PETA say that in particular they hope it will make people rethink fishing, suggesting if people inflict pain on sealife they deserve it themselves.
This could be considered particularly offensive as a British man was yesterday left fighting for his life after he was attacked by a great white shark while swimming in the sea near Cape Town, South Africa. He has been named as Michael Cohen, who had lived in the country for a long time and had a number of his family members living nearby.

Associated Press transcription of Obama’s CBC speech ‘racist’?

Here's a man that wants to act like he's a homeboy, tries to talk like he's one, but when he's quoted that way, he brings up the race accusations again.
Well, here's some racist shit for you:
You don't want to be treated like a nigger, then don't act or talk like one. Tell Mooch-elle that, too.

*****

By most accounts, President Obama gave a fiery speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual awards dinner in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, telling blacks to "quit crying and complaining" and support him in the fight for jobs, according to the Associated Press. But was the AP transcription of Obama's remarks racist?
That's the subject currently being debated after the issue was raised on Chris Hayes' MSNBC show on Sunday.
On MSNBC, the African-American author Karen Hunter complained the news service transcribed Obama's speech without cleaning it up as other outlets did--specifically including the "dropped g's."
Via the AP version:
"Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes," he said, his voice rising as applause and cheers mounted. "Shake it off. Stop complainin'. Stop grumblin'. Stop cryin'. We are going to press on. We have work to do."
Hunter called the AP's version "inherently racist," sparring with New Republic contributing editor and noted linguistics expert John McWhorter, who argued the g-less version "is actually the correct one," noting that the president's victory in the 2008 election was due, in part, to how effortlessly "he can switch into that [black] dialect."

They're desperate when they're hitting ME up for cash

A piece of an email I got today from BarackObama.com:

Friend --
Here's something you don't have in common with 117,552 other supporters of this movement who tell us they live in California.
  That many of your neighbors have decided to own a piece of this campaign by making a donation of whatever they could afford. For some, that meant just $5. For others, it meant $100 or more. But each had their own personal reason for giving.
  Our records show that you aren't one of the 117,552 people in your state who have stepped up for 2012. Now's your chance to change that.
Make a donation of $3 or more today to support the campaign before the critical September 30th deadline.



My reply:
You've only got 117,552 Obamessiah supporters in Kalifornia, the most liberal state in the Union?
That's fucked up.
Maybe you should tell that POS president to step up to the plate and do his damned job.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A year ago, dozens marched to protest the Confederate flag a white woman flew from her porch in a historically black Southern neighborhood. After someone threw a rock at her porch, she put up a wooden lattice. That was just the start of the building.
Earlier this year, two solid 8-foot high wooden fences were built on either side of Annie Chambers Caddell's modest brick house to shield the Southern banner from view.
Late this summer, Caddell raised a flagpole higher than the fences to display the flag. Then a similar pole with an American flag was placed across the fence in the yard of neighbor Patterson James, who is black.
One hundred and fifty years after the Civil War began about 20 miles away in Charleston Harbor, fights continue over the meaning of the Confederate flag. Some see it as a symbol of slavery and racism; others like Caddell say it's part of their Southern heritage.
"I'm here to stay. I didn't back down and because I didn't cower the neighbors say I'm the lady who loves her flag and loves her heritage," said the 51-year old Caddell who moved into the historically black Brownsville neighborhood in the summer of 2010. Her ancestors fought for the Confederacy.
Last October, about 70 people marched in the street and sang civil rights songs to protest the flag, while about 30 others stood in Caddell's yard waving the Confederate flag.
Opponents of the flag earlier gathered 200 names on a protest petition and took their case to a town council meeting where Caddell tearfully testified that she's not a racist. Local officials have said she has the right to fly the flag, while her neighbors have the right to protest. And build fences.
"Things seemed to quiet down and then the fences started," Caddell said. "I didn't know anything about it until they were putting down the postholes and threw it together in less than a day."
Aaron Brown, the town councilman whose district includes Brownsville, said neighbors raised money for the fences.
"The community met and talked about the situation," he said. "Somebody suggested that what we should do is just go ahead and put the fences up and that way somebody would have to stand directly in front of the house to see the flag and that would mediate the flag's influence."
Caddell isn't bothered by the fences and said they even seem to draw more attention to her house.
"People driving by here because of the privacy fences, they tend to slow down," she said. "If the objective was to block my house from view, they didn't succeed very well."
The Confederate flag remains a sensitive issue in South Carolina.
The battle emblem of the Confederacy had flown on the dome of the Statehouse in Columbia since the Civil War centennial in the 1960s when state lawmakers voted in 2000 to move it to a Confederate monument in front of the building. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has waged a tourism boycott on the state since then as it seeks to have the flag removed from the Statehouse grounds.
Caddell, Brown and James all say things have been quiet in Brownsville in recent months.
"She's got a right to do what she wants to do," James said. "That's all I really have to say. She can do what she wants to do in her yard, but I don't share her beliefs."

The koran where it belongs

Obama ain't touching this one

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said Sunday that the U.S. should consider military action against Pakistan if it continues to support terrorist attacks against American troops in Afghanistan.
"The sovereign nation of Pakistan is engaging in hostile acts against the United States and our ally Afghanistan that must cease, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told "Fox News Sunday."
He said if experts decided that the U.S. needs to "elevate its response," he was confident there would be strong bipartisan support in Congress for such action.
Graham did not call for military action but said "all options" should be considered. He said assistance to Pakistan should be reconfigured and that the U.S. should no longer designate an amount of aid for Pakistan but have a more "transactional relationship" with the country.
"They're killing American soldiers," he said. "If they continue to embrace terrorism as a part of their national strategy, we're going to have to put all options on the table, including defending our troops."
