Whoa, Valerie- lets back the soul train up

So Valerie Jarrett writes a piece of propaganda for the White House and her puppet who signed that Executive Order about a black education bureaucracy.

The President has made it a top priority to provide a complete and competitive education for all Americans – from cradle to career.  The White House bureaucracy Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans, created by this Executive Order, will work across Federal bureaucracies agencies and with partners and communities nationwide to produce a more effective continuum of education bureaucracies programs for African American students.  The initiative aims to ensure that all African American students receive an education that fully prepares them for high school graduation, college completion, and productive careers.
Just like we've been telling you we're going to do for the last 50 years.

In the nearly 60 years since the Brown v.Board of Education decision put America on a path toward equal educational opportunity, America’s educational system has undergone a remarkable transformation.  Many African American children who attended substandard, segregated schools in the 1950s have grown up to see their children attend integrated and effective elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities.
(and those blacks in segregated schools could read and do higher math as well as understand the scientific method)
Nonetheless, substantial obstacles to equal educational opportunity still remain in America’s school systems.  Disproportionately, students of color, including African Americans, lag in equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes.  And they experience school discipline and referrals to special education at higher rates than their peers.
Umm- Ok Val you got us there.
Is this new  bureaucracy of yours going to try to do anything about that whole "Acting white" thing when black kids actually TRY to learn anything?
What about that whole single mother,welfare dependency, gangbanging attitude? Or is that another Presidential Order to start another Federal bureaucracy?

That's Jeff Vader that is....

Sorry, had this running through my head today.

Unrelated thoughts

  • The TX electrical reliability council  has warned that with the Obama EPA coal fired powerplant chopping ax happening next year and the increase in population- that there would probably be (even more) rolling black-outs in the future..........there are suddenly no generators or motor-driven arc welders available in the SA craigslist.
  • I've always had a very low tolerance for stupidity. I see Agirls husband does, too. I was going to leave this on my FB page, but decided to let you in on a part of my life at that sekrit AFB in San Antonio.
As part of the reworking of the electrical distribution system, we're burying 6" and 4" PVC conduit encased in cement for the primary. This includes setting transformers, switch gear and vaults (big concrete pull boxes- basically). I've been having to try to get Larry, Daryl and Daryl to actually....work since they hired on.

Last Weds they were told to clean off the ends of the pipe that got buried by the last rain- there were four ends going to two different trenches. On one of them, I was digging a 12'x12'x12' hole for a vault.

I had to tell them four times to go work on the other ones while I had that hole open-
Can you believe I had to tell those stupid f*cks to move the ladder?
  • We had to get rid of some matting on the house-tribbles chest and pits with a petclippers. In the process I noticed we ended up cutting some of her whiskers. She doesn't seem to mind, but I'm wondering if they grow back?
UPDATE-
Thanks to BFH for the IOtW-lanch.

So I took off Thursday to vote

It was a runoff election between a Tea Party Conservative and the RINO David Dewhurst.

After voting I had to take this picture showing what was prohibited from the polling place in Medina County, TX less than a week after the Aurora shootings.



Ya, cell phones!

Eat it hoplophobes.

So, for a quarter of a Million Dollars a year from the Taxpayers- we get less than sixteen hours of non-fundraising work out of the Chicago Jeezus....

I took off yesterday to vote and still got 56 hours, but I guess digging a trench is more important than presidenting.

Too accurate not to share

I just can't remember where I lifted it from...


Davit Dewhurst can't even make a good attack ad

Listening to that middle school script attacking Ted Cruz for US Senator yesterday morning decided me to take off today so I could be sure to vote against him and David Wentworth.

Badly written and read attack ads work- but they work the wrong way with me.

The NCAA hammered Penn State

I'm hearing two things about it.
It was wayyy to hard-
and
Tough, F-them they deserve it.

The ones that are saying it was way to harsh, and is punishing the innocent students- Hey the NCAA is a bunch of Liberal academics who believe the punishment should fit the crime political ideals of the current PC protected class.

What I'm not hearing is the same cries of "it hurts the people not involved...who didn't have anything to do with it!" when the PO-Po come breaking down the wrong door at 3AM shooting the dogs and the homeowner...then having the taxpayers picking up the tab.

Or am I off base there?

35 hours on the clock since Sunday

I could take off about 11:30 tomorrow, but they authorized OT for this last week.
I don't know how much I want, because right now five days off sound good-
But so does lots of extra cash...

Except, like I told the boss- the more you make, the more they take out (which is why I wish they'd let us bank hours)

Anyway this is what I had running through my mind today:

Sunday, July 22, 2012

DoOooBie!

No It's not Dobie Gillis.
I'm working again, so have a dobie VS kitteh video-

Saturday, July 21, 2012

No ice cream today

I'm working.

Go let the .GOV help you build something.

UPDATE-
I'm getting to old to be working 10 1/2 hour days in this heat.
i finished off a half gallon of Sunny-D in the 20 minutes it took to get home from the Wally-World I had to stop at for iguana chow.
We're working tomorrow because we hit a mis-marked gas line and we lost about two hours for the Lackland finest to find us (on one of the main streets) and shut off the gas so we could keep working.

Tomorrow we're going to try finishing what we didn't today.

Your choice

Truth to power.
Biting the hand that feeds you.

More realistic battle scenes than we get nowadays.

The Battle of Culloden  on Netflix.

And the way our British overlords helped to ensure a free America...because we didn't want the benevolent attentions of the Crown going after our families.

AND how lucky we are that we had our military leader based on ability than royalty.

UPDATE:
"Braveheart:" it's not.


UPDATE II...
Wow, Bonnie Prince Charlie lead the Scots rebels like  someone else I can think of  once he was defeated...

Umm..haven't I heard that before that 'Bonnie Prince  Charles Bravely runs away"?

Fun with cats

Get one fat house-tribble.

Rile her up by playing with her feet and back toes until she's growling.

Set her on the desk near the edge.

Let the stoopid puppy from hell start wanting to play with her.

Watch and laugh as stoopid puppy from hell gets repeatedly swatted with vengeance.

There's always hope, Ms. Social worker

Because your little thug was the only one who didn't run away when caught, and actually came at you afterwards-

Don't you think he's had enough "second chances"?

The USS Jerry Ford (CVN)

That's a thought, isn't it?

Now, who reading this didn't just a little- think, gawd how does an Aircaft Carrier trip?

But this is special because it's the first naval ship designed with a mixed sex crew.
Which means No Urinals!

Yes, we have broken the gender barrier
Now instead of urinals,  women will have to put up with seats left up or some dickhead pissing all over the seat because he couldn't raise it.

Haven't flown in quite a while

And never since the iWON started ramping-up the Fourth Amendment assaults in the airports.

I was catching up on Tams posts and one of them made me wonder about how hard they look at what's in your basket?

So, who can spot the dangerous object that could bring down a 747...or something:

So, being as generous as possible- I'll give him about 15 hours worth of President'n this week.
We had two rain days and I got in 35 1/2 hours...

A little perspective here people, please

Everyone is getting all jacked-up about those new Polo uniforms that Ralph Lauren dreamed up for the Olympic team.

It's really either that or some kind of fake western wear.
And that would be outsourced to some third-world sweatshop, too. Because why waste that extra Dollar on clothes when you can sent it to your Chicago Jeezus for stealing this next election?
Anyway, the beret ..ehhh, it's only the Olympics. Just another leftist PC bunch who thinks style is more than substance.

At least they don't have yacht hats on-

Micro-stamping and you

So I read around thee intra-toobz how the forces of evil are trying to get micro-stamping as some kind of de-facto standard on new fire arms.

I was at Tx Thunder last week before going home on a rain day. I had about $350 in gift vouchers to spend, so I looked at a .357 in nickle (don't know the model) that I didn't like because
  1. I didn't like the slop in the cylinder lock-up
  2. It turned backwards to what I'm used to.
It also had a spur used for the firing pin.
An exposed spur that anyone with a piece of Emory cloth could have wiped out that micro-stamp in less than five minutes.

So I traded in my credits on a scoped .22 Henry...Which I could also jimmy the Micro-stamp with a judicious touch of JB weld.

I'm sure you've all seen the video of how to make a double-headed 16d form nail into a firing pin of an AR15/M-16 with almost no advanced machining required- right?


So you anti-freedom Libs who want to disarm honest citizens with your Barbara Streisand gun prohibitions can't win.

JB Weld
A file
A lathe
A nail
....you can't win.

So, the majik is back?

After three years of hearing the same thing read off the TelePrompter, people are starting to faint again?

Or is it more to do with something else? Over packed H.S. gyms or maybe the Screen Actors gild is planting these people to ad ...excitement to an otherwise boring and worn out play?

Why should 0bama show up?

The bro-s at the NAACP are kind of getting their collective noses out of joint because the second first black president sent his cracker Veep to their meeting instead of wasting his time fist-bumping the homies in Houston.

Really, Romney wasted his time talking to people who would never in a thousand years vote for him- why should the Chocolate Jeezus bother with people who are going to vote for him no mater what?

Just throwing this out for discussion

If anyone ever did find a way to make a real perpetual motion machine- it would be totally useless except for a viewing oddity.

Because it would have to be positioned somewhere in space where all gravity was neutralized and there was nothing touching it, much less being driven by it.

So we have the newest scam for the gullable

Basically it's from the well known fact that president Everyman has a secret stash that he uses to help the poor and downtrodden.
All you have to do is type in the red numbers on the back of your SocSec card, or in another scam- give the hustler your identifiers and they give you a routing number to pay your mortgage, electric bill ...or even buy your gas.

I wonder where people got the idea that Barack would pay for their shit?

...And will this "emergency" happen befor or after Nov. 6?

Inquiring minds are curious, but know it'll  be before January 2013.

When you bring this Executive Order (that doesn't even have a number) into operation and take over the nations communications?

Do you notice that it's always been the Democrats who put people in detention camps, and(except for Lincoln) deny Constitutional guarantees?

Changyness and me

In the last 3  1/2 years I'll tell you how our Wally-world visits have changed.

Back in Jan. '09 we had:
Store brand bread for $.74
Meat that wasn't the best, but affordable
Shredded cheese bags for about $6.25
Miracle Whip for about $2.25
A head of iceberg lettuce for about $.50
Green bell peppers for about $.33
A pound can of coffee for about $4.50

Now, in July `12
Store brand bread for $1.25
Meat that cost like a good cut and leaves 2 cups of water when you cook it
Shredded cheese bags for almost $9.00
Miracle Whip for about $3.75 (on sale)
A head of iceberg lettuce for about $1.00
Green bell peppers for about $.88
A pound can of coffee for about $7.50

I'd *really* hate to see much more change....

It's been over 20 years

Since I was in uniform.

Even now when I talk to a military Officer, I have to stop myself from throwing a salute.

The Jeezus rests

On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd  days of July- the Chicago Jezzus rests.
---Because flying around in taxpayer supplied luxury is hard work--
On the fourth, he had a photo-op with the military before partying like a king.

On the fifth and sixth, he had two Canadian made buses flown to Ohio to campaign about jobs in America...or something.





In four working days, I got in 37 hours- because if I don't work,,,I don't get paid.

An Independence Day message

From someone who really appreciates American ideals:




No wonder 0bama hates him so much.

So....

Which national symbol is 0bama going to close down all day for a photo-op?

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Three good reasons to hire a vet

I've nicknamed them Larry, Daryl and Daryl.

All can probably remember what their *under 21* drivers license looks like, but can't hold more than one idea in their heads at one time; much less think ahead.

I've told them over and over that the fastest way to get something f*cked-up here is to just *drop* it on the ground when I'm on the backhoe, or they're driving around.
I've told them that the next time they just drop something and I end up putting it in the dirt pile- they'll find out just how easy it is to take three steps to lean it on a tree instead of having to dig it out of that dirt pile...with broken shovels, because they just *drop* them too.

I've had it. the Super has had it, and we had a talk with them this morning and not one word made it through their self...whatever. You could see it in their eyes just how we were wasting their time trying to get them to think ahead.

I should have sent them all home this morning, but we needed to get some pot-holing done.
We finally got a number on an ex-AF guy who was in Red Horse- who boss and I can relate to, I just wish we could find more vets wanting work in San Antonio- we'd have a kick-ass crew!

Then, after we get three blocks worth of rocks picked up by hand- Larry, Daryl and Daryl can sit home and not listen to "the man" as long as their UI lasts.

The securty forces

Of Casa Trainwreck

2- dogs
1- puppy (who is ONLY alive because he's going back to Camp Pendelton in Aug.)
1- small black cat
1- house tribble

Looks like there was a hot reaction to the SCOTUS ruling Thursday

It was so hot that it melted my neighborhoods amp and I've been without internet until just a while ago.

Yeah, lets get someone in that'll replace those Alzheimer patients with  people who understand what the Constitution means.
