Fun and games at the hospital

Yeah, so I went up and visited Pops today - he had a surgery Thursday and has some other shit going on so he's back in the hospital. Anyways, Mom texted that she wanted me to go up there and shave him so after I got my meat off the smoker I headed into town.
Anyways, I get in there and don the proper attire - facemask, gown and gloves - and wander in. Mom's there along with a couple of my nieces and Pops brother Ed and Cousin Skip, everybody watching the TV really intently. What the fuck's going on, did the arabs blow something up again? Then I walk into the room enough to see they're watching Professional Bull Riding with the sound down. Ahhhhh......

I don't know why I gotta wear all this shit anyways. If they're worried about maybe him being contagious wouldn't they think that his immediate family would've been infected before he was hospitalized? And if they're concerned about me passing something on to him how come they didn't say nothing about the dogshit I tracked through 4 floors of hospital? Somebody besides me had to have smelled it.

I asked him how his pain was and he just grimaced. A little later in the conversation I asked him if there was anything he needed and he said "Yeah, how 'bout my 45? Motherfuckers will listen then when I tell 'em I hurt."
"You bet" I said and bent down to hug him, catching that 'You-better-not-motherfucker' look from Mom, a look so intense that I caught myself before offering Pops to leave mine there with him.

For the first time in my life I managed to find my way out of the hospital without getting lost and having to take on calories at the cafeteria before continuing my quest for an exit, any exit. I walked out of his room and went right out the same door I came in. However I did get lost in the parking garage after finding the car. I swear to God I parked in the second stall when you enter, but instead of flipping around and driving out the entrance (there was absolutely no traffic) I decided to do the things the right way and find the exit. That motherfucker has 4 floors and I drove up and down every one of them going faster and faster, picking up a security escort along the way, finally whipping out onto the road I wanted to be on but going the wrong direction. I nailed it and jammed down this road until I came to a little traffic circle there which I made a few laps around giving the security dudes time to catch up in their little golf cart, then just as they got there I blew out of the circle past them and hit the road laughing my ass off.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to take my truck next time.



III to III

Julie, the nurse that started this whole III to III thing, mentioned that there were quite a few blogs that were flying the button and link. I gotta confess that I haven't been making my regular blog rounds lately - I knew of three or four but that was about it.
So if you're a blogger and you're running this too, drop me an email with your link and I'll add it to a III to III blogroll and I'll give that motherfucker a place of Honor right at the top of my sidebar.

Meanwhile, on the south end of town.....

I'm serious, this picture of future American citizens could've been taken on the south side of Modesto.

Me! It's all about me!

Gray State

David sent this in to me this morning - a concept for a III movie. Check it out, it may become reality.



Synopsis
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance – these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
This is the backdrop to an unfolding story of resistance. American militias prepare for guerilla warfare. There are mass defections from the military as true Patriots attempt to rally around the Constitution and defend liberty, preparing a national insurgency against federal forces, knowing full well this will be the last time in history the oppressed will be capable of organized resistance.
It is a time of transition, of shifting alliance, of mass awakening and mass execution. It is an impending storm, an iron-gray morning that puts into effect decades of over-comfort and complacency, and Americans wake up to an occupied homeland. It is a time of lists – black list, white list, and those still caught in the middle, those who risk physical death for their free will and those who sell their souls to maintain their idle thoughts and easy comforts. It is in this Gray State that the perpetuation of human freedom will be contested, or crushed.
Is it the near future, or is it the present? The Gray State is coming - by consent or conquest. This is battlefield USA.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Analysts expect West Coast gas prices to rise beyond $4 a gallon after a fire knocked out a key section of one of the nation's largest oil refineries.
Meanwhile, the same U.S. Chemical Safety Board team that investigated the oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico was standing by with state and company inspectors waiting for structural and environmental tests to see if it was safe to enter the unit.
In all, five separate investigations will be done to determine the cause and effects of the Monday night blaze at Chevron's Richmond refinery.

Only in California

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — The California Fish and Game Commission removed its president on Wednesday, months after he was criticized for killing a mountain lion in Idaho.
Real estate developer Dan Richards was stripped of his leadership role with little discussion during a meeting in Ventura.
Richards said his morning began ominously when he was listening to Nickelback during his workout and heard the song, "If Today Was Your Last Day."
"I was fully aware today would be my last day as the president, but it's not my last day on God's green earth," Richards said after the unanimous vote to replace him with member Jim Kellogg.
Richards, who was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2008, has said he plans to remain on the five-member commission until his term expires in six months.
Conservationists clamored for his ouster after photos surfaced earlier this year of him holding the slain mountain lion.
"Californians have twice voted in a resounding fashion to protect mountain lions in our state, and his flagrant flaunting of his disagreement with the electorate put him out of sync with California," said Jennifer Fearing, state director of the Humane Society of the United States. "We're glad to see the commission take action."
Critics, including animal welfare groups, said the commission chief should uphold the values of the state he represents. Hunting groups defended Richards.
Richards also came under fire for accepting the $7,000 hunting trip without paying any of the cost. He repaid the hunting lodge after an ethics complaint was filed.
In the wake of the controversy, the commission changed rules that give the presidency to the most senior member of the commission and instead chose to have the president selected by majority vote.
He told the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/MwkOvF) during a recent interview that he broke no wildlife laws.
"There's no chance I did anything wrong," Richards said. "I did everything by the book."
Hunting mountain lions is banned in California, though it's legal in Idaho and other states.

*****

Only in California can you be fired for doing something that is legal in other states.
God help me if I were to go to Nevada or Arizona and fire an 'assault' weapon. I could probably be executed.
Notice that USHS got their 2 cents worth in? How much do you want to bet they were behind this whole deal?

That's what happens when you hang with Hank III

Country superstar Randy Travis walked naked into a convenience store to buy cigarettes, touching off a bizarre series of events that ended with him being charged with threatening to shoot a state trooper in North Texas, police and sources said.
According to the Grayson County Sheriff's Department, Travis was arrested Wednesday following a single car crash on Farm-to-Market Road 922 at Clover Road near Tioga.
Sources told NBC 5 that prior to the crash a call was placed to 911 by a store clerk who reported Travis walked into a convenience store without any clothes on asking for cigarettes. When asked how he was going to pay for them, Travis left aggravated and empty-handed.
A short time later, a second call was received by 911 saying a man was found lying in the roadway along FM 922 near Clover Road.
State troopers, responding to the 911 calls, arrived at the scene and found Travis, who refused a blood and breath test, with a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and several other signs of intoxication, police said.
The state trooper that arrested Travis placed him into custody on suspicion of driving while intoxicated -- a Class B misdemeanor.
During the arrest, police said Travis threatened to shoot and kill the troopers working the case. Consequently, Travis was also arrested on a charge of retaliation, a third-degree felony punishable by 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, according to Grayson County District Attorney Joseph Brown.
A search warrant was granted by a judge for a blood specimen, which was later taken at a local hospital. Travis was booked into the Grayson County Jail just before 5 a.m.
Brown added that Travis' February arrest for public intoxication will be taken into consideration when the case goes before the court.
Travis, wearing a UT hat and scrubs was released Wednesday morning after posting bond of $1,500 for the DWI charge and $20,000 for the retaliation charge.

FUCK YOU OBAMA!!!!!

Obama Considering Executive-Branch Action on Cybersecurity

President Barack Obama is considering executive-branch action on U.S. cybersecurity after Congress failed to pass legislation to protect national security assets, a White House aide said.
“If the Congress is not going to act on something like this, then the president wants to make sure that we’re doing everything possible,” John Brennan, Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, said today at an event at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.
Senate Republicans last week blocked a bill backed by Obama that would have set up voluntary cybersecurity standards for operators of infrastructure such as power grids and water-treatment plants that are considered essential to national security.
Republicans, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups said the voluntary standards would be a back door to government regulation of companies. The bill was sponsored by Senators Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, and Susan Collins, a Maine Republican.
Brennan said opponents misrepresented the bill, which he said called for minimum performance standards. He didn’t specify what the White House is planning, or if it would take the form of an executive order.

Over 100 MILLION people sucking the gov't teat



A new chart set to be released later today by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee details a startling statistic: “Over 100 Million People in U.S. Now Receiving Some Form Of Federal Welfare.”
“The federal government administers nearly 80 different overlapping federal means-tested welfare programs,” the Senate Budget Committee notes. However, the committee states, the figures used in the chart do not include those who are only benefiting from Social Security and/or Medicare.
Food stamps and Medicaid make up a large–and growing–chunk of the more than 100 million recipients. “Among the major means tested welfare programs, since 2000 Medicaid has increased from 34 million people to 54 million in 2011 and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps) from 17 million to 45 million in 2011,” says the Senate Budget Committee. “Spending on food stamps alone is projected to reach $800 billion over the next decade.”

Gotta be California (again)

Dealing with Doc

Man, my lower back has been giving me fits lately, most of it muscle pain running the from hip to hip, almost like when my sciatica starts to kick in but on both sides.
So I went to see Doc about it this morning wanting him to work his magic. "Hi Kenny, what's up with you?'
"My fucking back is kicking my ass again. Do something, man. But I don't have time for physical therapy, I don't want any painkillers and I ain't wearing a back brace. Fuck that."
"So just what in the hell do you want me to do?" he asks tossing my records in the trash can. He does that a lot.
"How the fuck do I know, man? You're the smart one in the room."
We glare at each other for a minute until he finally comes up with a solution. "You want some samples of hard-on pills?"
"Yeah, that might work."
So by the time it was all said and done I ended up with an injection in my hip, a fist full of flexoril, a prescription of anti-inflammatories for my git kit, a referral for PT and a back brace which I'll never use and a couple samples of happy pills. Not a bad haul, you know?
Let me tell you what, though. By the time I got home my back felt better but my left hip was fucking throbbing. It's almost like all that pain just moved over to one area.
So I mowed the yards - probably not the brightest idea now that I'm looking back on it. I'm laid up in my Camouflaged Bass Pro Easy Chair and can't hardly move.
Getting old is a bitch.

It's what you're all here for - Milfy Mondays!!!

Big Fucking Deal

Me and a buddy were talking the other day at work and he started talking about Aurora shooting, then started bitching and moaning about all the new gun laws that were sure to result from it. I let him go on and on talking about how the world was gonna end and all that good shit and finally he noticed I wasn't getting all worked up with him. "What the fuck, man? Am I right or wrong?"
"Hey, you may be right about a lot of it but the simple fact is, I don't give a fuck."
Seriously, I do not give a fuck about any new gun laws because I'm not going to obey them anyways. The only thing that might slightly affect me is internet ammo sales and that is a very slight inconvenience. Now I have to leave the house to buy ammo. Big fucking deal.
New restrictions on being able to buy a firearm won't apply because I'll find them 'elsewhere' if I need another one.
Restrictions on types or amounts of ammo an individual can own? Good luck with that one..... and you'll make me and a bunch of other folks rich running underground reloading factories - free enterprise, The American Way.
Limiting magazines capacities won't work either. There's a 10 round limit already here in California and I do not know a single magazine fed firearm owner that doesn't have at least a couple illegal magazines for his weapon.
So fuck no, I am not worried about any new restrictions.

How to Survive Anywhere - free Kindle download RIGHT HERE.
Just downloaded it myself so I can't give my rave review and there damned sure ain't enough books out to teach a Greener how to survive, but if you can gain one little nugget of useful information then it's worth the time to read.
Thanks to Woody for the link.

And as long as I'm talking about e-books, there are a shitload of free and damned near free books that every Patriot should have in his library. Maybe you couldn't afford them before but at 99 cents.......
I picked up The Constitution of The United States, The Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, Speeches of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine Compilation, The Federalist Papers, The Anti Federalist Papers, The Founding Fathers, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, The War of Independence, and Recollections and Letters of General Robert E Lee just to name a few plus a shitload of American Classics all for the price of a hardback at B&N.

Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future

..........Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed. In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection. Citing the precedents of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and Dwight D. Eisenhower sending troops to Little Rock in 1957, the president mobilizes the military and the Department of Homeland Security, to regain control of the city. This scenario requires us to consider how domestic intelligence is gathered and shared, the role of local law enforcement (to the extent that it supports the operation), the scope and limits of the Insurrection Act--for example maintaining a military chain of command but in support of the Attorney General as the Department of Justice is the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) under the conditions of the Act--and the roles of the local, national, and international media...........
