  • ROCKETS ARE LANDING ON THE GREEN ZONE IN BAGHDAD NEAR THE US EMBASSY. NOW [Jan 5th]

    USA will respond at our time, place, and choosing not theirs. Sucks to be an Iranian leader with a Wiley Coyote mindset.

    Media (and the SWAMP) are so f**ked they don’t know which way to SPIN things except it must have been Trump’s fault for defending the roadrunner.

    MEEP MEEP! Meet the new Sheriff. Now, ain’t that deployable?

  • Bloomberg: We Can’t Just Let “Average” Americans Have Guns

    Armed with a gospel gun: I'm reminded of the following:

    The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. (Proverbs 12:18)

    Our words can fatally wound – they can stab, pierce and slash those around us. They can destroy friendships, kill marriages, bring down companies, ruin churches and start wars.

    Bloomberg - lay down your sword, bend a knee in prayer, and give thanks to GOD that we are One Nation under GOD.

    GOD, not he, is in control of our destiny as a nation and HE alone will judge us. Until then I'm sticking to my guns.

    I’m convinced she’s a person of bad attitude that will keep on giving to the bitter end. I judge the fruits of her tree to be bitter, not good. The rest I leave to a higher authority if you know what I mean.

    As an retired activist living undercover in Bum F***. TX. I’m too old to give a two Schitts what she thinks.

    Have a Merry Christmas Jane...

    Nothing is more precious to me than the promise of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, especially at this time of year. For without him I have no hope.

    I woke up one day and I was old and elderly. Looking through the back pages of my life, I discovered he had blessed and guided me in ways I could not understand at the time.

    So when lifes’ burdens become too heavy and you can’t shoulder them anymore, give them to HIM. He will comfort you in times of trouble.

  • What is the secret of Hillary Clinton's strangely plumped-up-cheeks? (Mega-Barf Alert)

    That December 2019 photo looks like the latest doppleganger ol’ Bill could find for her. After the SS threw her a** in the cargo van and hauled a** to the New York apartment she was back on the street in record time.

    Unfortunately, time has taken it’s toll on the real Hillary and she is no longer as swift and pristine as she used to be. If she runs it will be to the bathroom. If elected, she will pardon her convicted friends and retire leaving whomever is the VP at the time to assume the role of POTUS.

    If course, President Trump is reelected all bets are off.

    Venezuela is a prime example of where we are headed.

    Yes and No.

    Out here in rural Bumf*ck Texas and within most suburban areas, patriots are prepped, armed and loaded to some degree, and ready to respond should we become like Venezuela. If our government fails to honor it's Constitutional contract with the people, we will stand and defend our rights. That includes the right to form a new government by and for the people.

    Yes, our nation could be headed that way. But if we can drain the swamp NOW and stop the corruption within our different levels of government, our nation will prevail for another generation of patriots to enjoy the freedoms our founding fathers gave us.

    No, patriots will never give up their guns, knives, baseball bats, or whatever else they can use to defend their rights and secure their freedoms against a tyrannical government at any level (local, state, or federal).

    BTW Check out the Venezuelan form of government and its Constitutional history.

  • Trump, Congress challenged to go further after backing limited (12 weeks) paid family leave

    Isn’t China where the women are free for 15 minutes to have the baby and then it’s back to the rice paddy. Does China really restrict couples to two children?

    I’m so old, I can remember things like employer health insurance benefits covered most of the cost for my two kids and any time off was paid using my unused vacation days or paid sick days. We did alright at the time.

    Isn’t 12 weeks a bit excessive. How about 2 weeks?

    Out here in rural BumF*ck Texas, we still have babies at home and some prefer home schooling them until they are accepted into U.T. So send us a check that we can cash down at the gas station and we will put it to good use.

    Being self-employed (cattle/goat rustlers, METH lab technicians, Wine/Beer/Moonshine distillers, bootleggers, hemp farmers, landscapers, etc.) we generate cash under table and pay little or no taxes compared to our Urban counterparts. We could always use the extra government cash to upgrade or replace the equipment used in our operations. The F-150 is getting old and the lab equipment is worn or obsolete. /s

    Our motto is “In GOD we trust, everybody else pays cash”. But if you need a loan, that can be arranged too. /s

    Maybe he had an awakening that the Jig is Up.

    Used in the context above, this expression is typically used when someone has been lying about something or deceiving others in some way. This expression is used to let that person know that they have been caught.

    NOT to be confused with any of various lively dances in triple time. OTOH, I’m dancing around a bit here...

    That’ll p*ss-off some w*tbacks and Califonicators who are arriving daily for sure.

    Oh well, who am I to criticize. My great granddad borrowed a wagon and some horses in Tennessee before quieting leaving in the night for Texas. An oversight we don’t discuss at family gettogethers anymore.

    I love Texas and all things Texican and that includes Sam Houston.

    I’m anticipating some extremely far left democratic asshole city government official will suggest tearing down the Alamo, replacing it with a parking lot, and erecting a statue of el Presidente Antonio López de Santa Anna in the middle. Maybe a flagpole with a Mexican flag flying in the breeze would add a special touch or two.

    Simple: As long as one cannot sustain their current “level of living” they need to lower it to live within their means. I’ve been there, done that! It worked for me.

    In the USSA there are no poor and homeless - only statistical extremes (outliers). The lowest level being composed of individuals ranging from unemployed millionaires to unemployable grunts with no skills or experience and (dare I say it) possessors of useless college degrees. The highest levels are those who have benefited the most. Throw in a few mentality retarded, drug addicted, sexually confused, or whatever else to make it sadder. Add the lack of a desire to “do better” and viola, we have the “poor and homeless” of humanity and at the other extreme, the “rich” elite.

    But somewhere in the middle are you and I. Call us the rest of humanity, maybe even “the majority”. We are struggling to survive and stay afloat. We are being pulled under by the raging river of change happening in our society today. True, we have chosen poorly in many ways to get to this point in our lives, but we are not sh*tting on the streets of San Francisco and poking needles in our arms. Despite our (deplorable) condition, we still have respect in ourselves and hope that we can improve our human condition. As so, we are the “survivors” of an ever changing society.

    We acknowledge (historically) the tree of politics, religion, and economics to be ever changing, we know “bad” fruit happens. When we see it, we evaluate its affect upon our lives and care enough to react in our own best interests. We are being deceived with the lie “we are not to judge anyone, let alone ourselves”. Instead we should rely on our “superiors” to judge for us and direct our lives. Knowing everyone (to some degree) is a victim of the society in which they live, many are ready to blame their condition on something or someone else. Many have become sheeple afraid to face reality and so easy to let others do their thinking and make their decisions for them. We are becoming followers, not leaders. We are set to be replaced by robots and AI.

    Historically, the humanly poor have been and will always remain with us. The best we can hope for is not to become one of them. In the meantime, wake up, face reality (we are not all equal and entitled as many would believe) and adjust to living within your means until you can improve your condition.

    It is written: Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. Good advise I believe.

  • Brutal mass brawl breaks out in Soldier Field concourse as Bears and Cowboys fans trade blows after Chicago win

    Texas (and several other states who still follow Friday night high school football seriously) are probably laughing their asses off at this public display of sportsmanship and mutual respect between high paid political entertainers who represent the best todays NFL has to offer.

    But once upon a time such was viewed as a minor difference of opinion and wasn’t taken seriously until grandma left the stands and joined the melee. Then you knew someone was going to get their ass kicked (or caned) in the worst way. /s

    I’m so old I can remember when the Cowboys used to be called “GOD’s team” and grandma was not to be ***ked with. But Jerry Jones, Howdy Doody Garrett, and Pajama boy have fixed that. Oh, the brutality...

    About brutality. I remember the Ditka Bears and Green Bay Packer teams of yesteryear. I expected each team to be very physical and they didn’t disappoint or bore me.

    It was a manly sport back then.

    So it’s just like working in IT...

    Amen, been there, done that. I couldn't take a **** in peace, without being beeped. In fact I carried a second one in case I did not respond to first one. After I retired, the mere sight of a beeper unnerved me.

    In the twilight years of career, I switched to a cell phone that took a message and responded with a get back to you message. Since my geological coordinates were not trackable on the early models, I could play hide and seek.

    But not be outdone, executives sent runners to the those of us trapped in the men's room to announce and inform us "The Boss is having a meeting in 15 minutes - Get your *** in gear".

    Finally I'd like to get my hands on the guy who invented posted notes. Upon to returning my cubicle space I found a multitude of them stuck to everything in sight.

    Homeschoolers will have to make that decision when the time comes.

    My wife and I found a Christian school with a staff we trusted and watched closely until the children became of age and could make their own decisions. We allowed them to attend public schools and eventually go on to colleges and careers of their choice.

    If the family spiritual bonds are strong enough and the children are raised in the admonition of the Lord, they will have the amour they need to survive the temptations of the world when they become adults.

    Spend time with your family, share meals, and answer their questions. Always teach them where two or more are gathered in HIS name, HE is there among them.

    Introduce them to the Lord and his teachings and why you believe as you do. Don't force them to make decisions they are unprepared to make at an early age.

    Ask them about their friends outside the family. Pay attention to who is influencing them and in what way.

    Yes, we would have liked to have home schooled them, but this is where the Lord led us and we followed. Your beliefs may be different.

    As long as there are families and mamas cook in America, nobody is going to starve. He should know this. We’re suffering from obesity, not starvation.

    Castro is full of bull**** and a idiot to boot. I guess his mama didn’t cook so well or his personal cook didn’t add that special ingredient - love.

    Even our pets are beginning to show signs of obesity.
