Insult + Injury

how soon til this hits the F***Y** Pushback?
I grow impatient.

Here’s a Progaganda trend:

“Revenue means taxes, and certainly those who have been blessed the most, who have disproportionately extracted, by whatever skill, more and more from the national wealth, they’re going to have to share more of that,”

— CA .gov Jerry Brown

Here’s another from Obobo the EconKlown:

“What portion of our collective wealth and budget are we willing to invest in those things that allow a poor kid — whether in a rural town, or in Appalachia, or in the inner city — to access what they need both in terms of mentors and social networks, as well as decent books and computers and so forth, in order for them to succeed? …We don’t make those same common investments that we used to, and it’s had an impact.”

That’s an astonishing demonstration of ignorance of basic economics for the “Leader of the Free World” to not even notice he’s making. Talk about walking down Main Street with your dress tucked in your pantyhose.

“And we shouldn’t pretend that somehow we have been making those same investments,… We haven’t been, and there’s been a very specific ideological push not to make those investments.”

So welfare, WoP, WIC, Section8, and all the rest — nuttin?

What is that “specific ideological push not to make those investments” of which you speak? I am unfamiliar with any ideology which advocates that The Poor should be turned into slaves working on shovel-ready projects, fed Green Sustainable Chow at .gov hand-out centers, housed in .gov Sustainable Housing [within walking distance to public transportation], removed from any Individual choice or Freedom. ….except, perhaps, that held by Progressive Gajillionaires like, well, yanno.

Back to Oboboboboo:

I think it’s important, when it comes to dealing with issues of poverty, for us to guard against cynicism and not buy the idea that the poor will always be with us, and there’s nothing we can do ’cause there’s a lot we can do.

ahh. So all of History is worng. Only thing, if some are not to be “poorer” than “others” — by any measure — everyone will have to be limited to being exactly The Same. I cannot think of any other way to address this “problem.” You?

The idea of Poor has been redefined more often than “air pollution” in Kleptofornia [an order of magnitude, 10 times, in 40 years]. Kings and Despots of 100 years ago could not have imagined the wealth and security taken for normal by most of those currently called Poor. Simple antibiotics and regular fresh food, — hell you know as well as I.

I’m not denying the difficulty faced by the majority of the Poor, but most of it is due to the Dependency fostered by the .gov-run “Anti-Poverty” Programs which isolate and alienate people from the idea that they, themselves, can do a single solitary thing about their own fate.

“The top 25 hedge fund managers made more than all of the kindergarten teachers in the country,” Obama stated. “You pretty much have more than you’ll ever be able to use or anyone in your family will ever be able to use. There’s a fairness issue involved here.”

So his thesis is that it is up to Other People to decide how much money a single Individual [or Family] is allowed to have; and the gauge is “how much you can use.” Rather a lot of definition and background work lacking here…

If we can’t ask from society’s lottery winners to just make that modest investment, then really this conversation is for show.

“Lottery winners”

“Ask”

“Investment”

Meanwhile, on the Home Front…

“As summer — and pool weather! — lingers on the horizon, it’s a good time to remind you that BSA policies prohibit pointing simulated firearms at people.” Adding, “Yes, that includes water guns.”

Dangerous and Scary Aquatic Assault Weapon

(The Jackass) explains that this decree comes from the official Scouting Handbook. “You’ll find the relevant sentence on page 99. It reads: ‘Water guns and rubber band guns must only be used to shoot at targets, and eye protection must be worn,’” he writes.

The time has come for common sense regulations on rubber band guns

Water balloons are also under increased limitations by the Scouts. “Water balloons, meanwhile, have a size limit: ‘For water balloons, use small, biodegradable balloons, and fill them no larger than a ping pong ball.’ (Page 100),”

Just about the size of this person’s brain.

Depravity

ISIS again demonstrates that it’s even more depraved than the Kims.
I wonder if it’s contagious.

(What? Yeah, wonder how they’d fare against a biker gang.)

iSlamofascism Rides On

no respect + bulldozers

The historic city of Palmyra has fallen almost entirely under the control of Islamic State, after forces loyal to the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, collapsed under a seven-day siege that has left the magnificent ruins there exposed to near-certain destruction by the terror group.

…The ancient city, once a Silk Road hub and one of the cultural centres of the ancient world that occupies mythological status in Syria, is home to some of the most beautiful and well-preserved ruins of antiquity, including the Temple of Bel, built in the first century.

Isis considers the preservation of such historical ruins a form of idolatry and has destroyed temples and historic artefacts, as well as ancient Assyrian sites in Nineveh in Iraq, after conquering the province in a lightning offensive last year.

…The group has profited from looting historic treasures, in addition to scoring propaganda victories by the wanton destruction of archaeological sites

The loss of the city and its surrounding gas fields, which supply electricity to much of the Assad regime’s strongholds in western Syria…

The UN – who claims Palmyra as a “World Heritage Site”, is making strong, Un-style protestations, “Guys, we really don’t think that’s really a good idea. Guys? Please?”

Dating back to the Neolithic, Palmyra was first attested in the early second millennium BC, as a caravan stop for travelers crossing the Syrian Desert. The city is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible and in the annals of the Assyrian kings, then it was incorporated into the Seleucid Empire, followed by the Roman Empire which brought great prosperity.

…The Palmyrenes were renowned merchants who established colonies along the Silk Road, and conducted their operations all around the Roman empire.

…Palmyra became a minor city under the rule of the Byzantines, Rashiduns, Ummayads, Abbassids, Mamluks, and their vassals. After being destroyed by the Timurids in 1400, Palmyra remained a small village under the rule of the Ottomans until 1918, then the Syrian kingdom, followed by the French mandate. In 1929 the French started evacuating the villagers into the newly built village of Tadmur. The evacuation was completed in 1932 and the site became abandoned and available for excavations.

So the iSlamoz are first looting the site for antiquities to sell and then will break out the bulldozers.

Because JohnnyJihad knows better than the collected wisdom of all humanity.

Come to think, no wonder there is a resonance between iSlamoz and Proggies…

Grillin’ Season is Comin’!

*droolz*

Here’s the newest tasty treat to sweep teh InnarToobz: I love me a trend. …with bacon. …and ribs.

Shave the pineapple but leave the top and bottom, lay on its side and about an inch in on both sides cut halfway down then with a long blade slice from point to point. Hollow out the desired amount of pineapple.

Season your meat with any of your favorite seasonings. A more course rub is better. Put the cut piece back on. To look like a complete pineapple again. Light dust the pineapple with seasoning.

Fully wrap it with thick cut bacon. Not just lay it on top. I set it on the smoker @ 240 and sprayed it with apple juice about every 20-30 minutes to keep the bacon moist and colorful.

You can change the meat to boneless chicken thighs and get the same results. A lot of people have said the pineapple over tenderized the meat when they tried it. I did not personally have that issue but I would check internal temp about 2 hours into smoking. Once you hit 160 it is up to you of when to pull it.

Oh, now who didn’t see this comin’?

A New York City theatre event intended to address censorship of arts and culture has been reinstated, after critically acclaimed screenwriter and filmmaker Neil LaBute agreed to scrap a performance that was deemed potentially offensive to Muslims. [story]

Yeah, my reaction is pretty much a a cliché.

Calgon, take me away….

hanging on the edge of a cliff

Perhaps some of you have noticed my absence over the last couple few weeks. I started becoming the person I hate…angry bitter anxious and frustrated all the time. Not my personal life, which couldn’t be more perfect. It was the influence I’d allowed from all the external forces. Uncivilization got to me. For a long time we’ve all been witnessing a decline in our society and as hard as I tried I just couldn’t fix it. So I ran screaming to The Grand Canyon. I wanted something that hadn’t changed. I wanted to see and meet people across America that weren’t the nasty passive-aggressive progressives that reside amongst me everywhere in Looney Leftyville. I had to get away from the Lympians. And the news.

I’ve had quite a few emotional years what with the passing of my Rumsfeld and Smurphy…the issues they succumbed to were fraught with much trauma and unknowns and process. Rumsfeld’s tumor caused a lot of problems prior to his diagnosis and there was much stress involved. From the behavior issues that we couldn’t solve to the seizures and subsequent diagnosis was almost 3 years. Then there was the healing. Then my beloved cranky old Smurphy began his decline. He came to us as a rescue at age 4 and carried with him a lot of emotional doggy scars. He required so very much diligence and patience and having him in our lives was challenging. My job was to keep him safe and out of trouble. It was more work than I realized. But his last two years as an only dog changed a lot. He remained untrusting of people and other dogs but he and I developed a bond that was so intense I just haven’t been able to really talk about it until now. We were both quite damaged from the past and carried a lot of baggage. He trusted me implicitly, loved me unconditionally and depended on me and we met each others emotional needs to the end. I miss him so terribly I don’t know how I’ve been able to bear it. He was also the last of the 4 of the original pack and for the fist time sine I was 16 I was without a pet….and for the last 20 years, without a dog.

I decided one afternoon returning from The Asylum that I wanted to go to The Grand Canyon. I don’t know why there specifically, perhaps because it was so Americana and nostalgic, but I think it has a much deeper meaning. I was at the edge of the abyss…but now I’m back.

I have SO MUCH to share about the trip…we rented a mini RV and drove 3500 miles in 14 days. We hardly slept, we saw much and experienced everything mind/body and soul. Then 2 hours after our return Friday, we picked up our Taggart. I am exhausted and quite pre-occupied what with a 9 week old Corgi and getting my life back to routine. Apologies for running away and not telling everyone and leaving you to wonder what happened to me. It’s really not a good idea to broadcast to the world that you are going away on vacation and there was so much planning and preparing to do I just got overwhelmed-er.
But I’m back now. And I think I’m back from the edge. Not physically refreshed by any means ( vacations and puppies are HARD :) but I think my emotional energy is refreshed and I left a lot of baggage in that great big hole.

I even decided that boycotting the plastic shopping sack ban wasn’t fun anymore and bought my first re-useable bag at the Canyon gift shop!

To be continued ( especially when we get the time to go through 860 photographs! :)…………
