WOW! What a ride

We had some rain last night.
And some wind.

I don't remember hearing anyhting about thunderstorms befor I went to work, but it was probably one of those Texas storms that come out of nowhere.

I was heading back from San ANtonio on my second trip and saw how BLACK the sky was over Castroville, and then started the lightning. It was all over the place, it looked like I was driving in a strobe light theater. At least it wasn't raining. Until I got to the other side of Castroville, then it let loose.

I had pull over because I couln't see anything. at. all.
We were sitting (three semis) still and rain and hail was hitting the windshield like we were going 60 MPH. The Mexicans people evacuation San Antonio -for some reason- couldn't be bothered to stop, they just slowed down.

Hondo creek- where we go shooting- was almost bank deep the last I saw before it got dark.
Just passed that, there was a dry van pushed sidways off the road, and all the road construction barrels and signage was scattered all over HWY 90.

I had to keep the differential lock in all night, just to keep the truck straight- because of the wide drive tires. They're called floaters- and they do. I know that the footprint is the same as two regular duals, but maybe it's over a foot wide, and the water can't escape that it wants to hydroplane faster. Even with 48,000pounds of sugar in the tank.

Oh, well. It's over, nothing I know was broken. I haven't been to the paddoc yet to see the remains of the garden, though. Well, if anything survived I'll be glad- Darwanism and all. The best plants survive.

Abu Graib !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Did I get your attention, or did your eyes automatically glaze over?

I'll mention it in passing, along with the ignorant, inbred, boyish c*nt holding the leash in the pictures. That was bad. It wasn't torture.
It may have been a violation of the Geneva convection- IF they were members of a STANDING(legal) military organization.

Are you tired of hearing about the supposed "rights" the islamo-terrorists have under the Geneva Convention?

The Left can't stop crying about the "rights" of irregulars involved on terrorism.
There is a vast difference between Resistance fighters who target only military targets, and terrorists who target (mostly) innocent civilians.
The Left conveniently forgets this, while crying about "rights".

The Left says we have to go overboard in extending "rights" and privileges to our captives- because if we don't then Micheal Moors "Minute Men" will have an excuse to treat our troops badly.

Guess what Libs, it doesn't work that way. The terrorists look at the Geneva convention as another one sided weapon to use against us.
Forced confessions.
Standard fare for the Mullahcrastocracy.

The Geneva convention prohibits Military prisoners of a LEGAL military force from being paraded around for propaganda purposes.
You aren't raising your voices about the kidnapped Brits?

For the same reason you held your tongue about the torture of our POWs held in Viet Nam? Who, I might add, were ALSO signers of the Geneva convention.

No wonder your credibility is in the sewer for anyone with an IQ of more than a Gerbil.

I just remembered, those "tortured and abused" prisoners in Abu Graib petitioned to be tranferd to OUR (American) prisons when Abu Graib was turned over the the Iraqis.
Not that you heard about that from the MSM- did you?

Does this remind you of anyone?

I don't have anyone specific in mind, I just found this while looking for my "Pretty little red rivi-air head".

You-tube doesn't have it.

BUT,,,, I do know some people that THIS song would fit:

Some like it wet

This is like the third week in a row that it's either been raining, or is wet from the rain.
Everything here is frigging green, and growing.
You can't tell we just mowed the lawn last weekend.

The front yard

It's too wet and humid to do any kind of fine (furniture grade) woodworking because of the 100% humidity here.
I'd guess that we had somewhere around a foot of rain in the last seceral weeks- counting the 7" we had to start it off.

Karen loves it because it reminds her of Old Blighty.
I don't because I can't really do anything outside.

Where we live is supposed to be semi arid (the begginings of the southwest desert- if you want). I walk outside and it feels like I'm in the middle of Puert Rico's El Yunque rainforest. I would say Guam, but it's not that hot and the rain isn't comming down in sheets.

El Capitain!

I have found your unknown missing son!

He was arrested for piratical acts, and believes in the Flying Spagetti Monster. (Ok, not 'arrested", but it sounded good)

“I feel like my First Amendment was violated,” Killian, 16, said. “Freedom of religion and freedom of expression. That’s what I tried to do, and I got shot down.”

Freedom of religion?

Yes, Killian says, his “pirate regalia” is part of his faith — the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I just KNOW that this will interest most of my faithful readers

All three of them.

Because I know just how cutting edge you are fashion-wise.

Hold on to your credit card and hope you aren't on this list of people who got their onfo stolen from the T.J. Maxx and Marshalls clothing chains.

Just putting this out for the benefit of the public.

This would drive the Left absolutely bananas

I know, I said I wasn't going to do any presidential stuff, but after reading this, I just HAVE to endorse Fred Thompson.
He has links to Watergate!

Cool, one of the biggest made-up scandals of modern times.
They'll be rolling on the ground chewing on the carpet over that.
...I mean a "real" carpet, on the floor- not their girlfr......ohhh- sorry-

Can you imagine how they'd act if Fred Thompson and Tom Trancredo ran together?
WOW, we could power the country on the hissy-fit the Lbs would throw!

Oh, and probably undo alot of the Conservative distrust of the Republican party---
So we KNOW that will never happen.

I mean, WHY do what's best for the country when you can rake in all those cash donations from your "cheap labor" buddies?

After reading this post I want to do business with them

I'd like to buy one for Karen. Probably some kind of youth/ladies model.
Except that we want an octagonal barrel.

We went to look at some over at Sportsmans' Warehouse the other day, in preperation for BaG day. She hefted a round barrel carbine and then an octoganal rifle, and could see how much steadier it was.

Ok, all we need now is to find a .22 mag with a short stock,,, and do something with her un-winkable left eye. OR teach her how to shoot lefty.

Is it a co-incidence?

Or am I putting WAYYyyyyyy too much Hollywood .....ummmmmmm..imagery into this?

Does this "Maveric"

Kinda remind you of

THIS 'Maveric"?

or am I just giving too much credit to the Left?

OHhhhh, and just for gratutous "sixiness"...

Can you see it?

It's a 3-D cube!

They're called stereograms.
They came and went in the late 90's -early 2000's.
I haven't really seen them since.

If you don't know how to *see* it, follow these steps.
  1. Click on the image to make it full size.
  2. Focus your eyes about a foot BEHIND the screen. (Try looking at the wall behind your moniter and sloooowly sliding youe eyes sideways)
  3. You'll start to see some kind of change in the picture, DON'T change your focus.
  4. Soon you'll get a better image, try slooowwwwly moving your head back and forth a little bit.
  5. When your eyes 'recognize" the image, you can start to look AT it, instead of through it.

Try some more:

This is a hollow cube with rings. (it's kinda hard to see the sides until you get used to it- this could be stereograph 3.0)

Now that you've got the hang of it, try a moving picture!

If you have trouble, try and give it a break- then come back. It took a while before I could just look and *see*.

Ok, one more for Easter! It's bigger, so it might be easier to see.

Ok, one more- how about a naked cowgirl...floating across the ceiling?

Friday night

AND what are you doing?

Friday, March 23, 2007

Wanna bet?

Geoge Bush sent one of his cunyaus down here to San Antonio to talk to some construction bigwigs.

Among other ummmmmm........policy statements, he said:
In a comment aimed directly at conservative critics, Gutierrez warned that 'the American people ill not tolerate a one sided bill.'
Wrong Mr. Gutierrez, I'd bet that someone with a "one sided" plan would walk away with any election they ran in.

He also went on to state that:
Gutierrez, who was born in Cuba and educated in Mexico, said the United States desperately requires a policy which welcomes immigrants to feed the country's growing economy, saying immigration 'will give this nation the economic edge over the coming century.'

"The reality is that there are thousands of jobs that aren't getting filled, because we don't have enough workers," Gutierrez said. "Immigration is crucial for our economy to grow in the years ahead. This is something we all need to recognize, and it's part of facing our reality."

Ya know, I'm really getting tired of theses PC types acting like we need to encourage these lawbreakers. That they're no different than the LEGAL immigants that are welcomed here.

Let me say again- Mr. Gutierrez, and tell your Jeffe- The reason AMERICANS aren't doing the work is because the pay isn't worth it.

My job is in a slowdown right now, I'm looking at other jobs, but refuse to even consider applying for any that say bi-lingual-BECAUSE I know that the wages and benefits will suck.
I like construction work, but refuse to work for $8 - $12 per hour.
That's what the pevailing wage is in San Antonio because of George Bush's "compassionate" immigration policy, and his continued @ss-kissing on that third world country to the south.

Yeah, I know- it's capitolism. It made America great, but you still get what you pay for. You pay for someone with a thrird grade education who broke the law to work here- you get someone you can't trust to do the work you hired them for.
Without constant supervision.

Keep talking like that Mr. Gutierrez, and watch your popular support sink even lower than it is now.
But that's ok, the big contributors are happy.

I've been meaning to do a post on this

Kinda tying the Liberal Democratic/MSM 'outrage' over the firing of 8 prosecutors, and their search for 'answers'.
If they *really* want to know about firing prosecutors, why not ask Janet Reno?
She has more experience in firing a lot more - for less reason than the Bush 'regime'.
At least they were only fired, and didn't have the FBI sikked on them.

Bush mentioned it the other day, when he proved my post wrong (so far) about throwing Alberto Gonzales under the bus.
Ok, I freely admit I was wrong- so far.

That's a sign of maturity there, you politicians.
Instead of laying blame and pointing fingers at everyone you can, man up and take it. People will respect you more, and trust you, even.

Where was I?
Sorry been having computer problems again. Don't know if it's a bad disc, or a trojan I can't find.

Oh, yea- the witch hunt.
I thought it was only supposed to be evil Conservative Rethuglicans that went after people for ideological purposes. But doesn't it seem that the Bolshevik/Soviet/Socialist mask is slipping alot more now?
It's like they think they have a lock on power and aren't afraid to let the little people see their true face.

The face of Fascist intolerance.
The reason there is a big push to get ill educated kids into college is for socialist indoctrination.
The MSM is full of thought police attacking everyone who isn't in lockstep with their view of the world.
Hollywood actors are sending themselves to re-education spas because they spoke wrongly.
Major newspapers who toe the party line cam headline top secret information, and get praise from the Left, but talking about a glorified secretary is a criminal offense- if you're a Republican.

Just keep going Libs, hopefully it'll sink in to the voters just how bad you are for America.
We survived eight years of Bill Clinton, I hope we can survive 2 years of you.

You just can't get away from it, can you?

I'm going to close my Bank of America account because of their wooing Illegals.
I won't open an account at Wells-Fargo (I'd get my mortgage out, too- if I could).
HSBC eagerly accepts bogus Mexican ID cards, too.
CiTI, nope- I replied to one of their junkmails and told them no to send me anymore until they quit lending to criminals. That stopped it (junkmail)considerably.

SO I went to Woodforest Bank at Walmart, asked about their policies of requireing ID, and what type. She told me that they only accepted official, legal documents accompanied by a SocSec number.
Cool, I'm not supporting Illegals, right?
I went to log-on and set up my account for bill paying and was asked which ID from I'd be using and the number:
  • DL
  • SocSec
  • Tx ID
  • Military ID
  • a f*cking MATRICULA card.
Ok, I guess ALL major banks can't stop drooling over "the bank accounts that Americans won't open", or something.

I guess it's going to be the international Bank of Hondo next.
Hunny, you'll need to change your direct deposit.

You're bored, what do you do?

Hey, how about robbing someones house!

Typical idiotic teenage mentality.
The last line pretty well sums up the attitude of MY favorite 18 year-old.

.....And the picture shows she's defiantly NOT related to Elizabeth.

Snopes takes the axe to another set of "facts"

This one about the 'too good to be true' cellphone meme.

You know,
  • The one about dialing 112 for any avilable carrier?
  • Unlock your car door with a remote?
  • *3370# to unlock hidden battery reserves (so you can continue being a road menace).
  • The Cell phone serial # code, and it's automatic shut-dowm of said phone.
  • The 800-FREE-411, which was the only one that was realistic.
If you're interested in the truth about cell phones, here's the link.
I would have mailed the auther of the blogpost, but they don't have a contact anywhere on their blog that I could find.

I'm going to be the first one to say this

At least I haven't heard anyone else say it yet...

The 2008 Presidential election is going to have one of the worst turn-outs in modern history.

Can you guess why?
Because everyone who is not completely ignoring it will be soooo burnt out with it BEFORE the "NEW and IMPROVED" , "BETTER than EVER" primaries cycle in the first two months of the year.

They're doing it for the chance to rake in HUGE amounts of cash you! So you think you have a say in the election process!

By the time the January, February and (if there are any) March state primaries roll around, voters are already going to have "name fatigue". Come on, do you really think anyone that pays attention to our political process (besides the ones directly involved) CARE about hearing the absolute same cr@p for two years?
I'm already getting tired of it, and it's only March of 2007- a year and a half away from the election.

Can you people give me a break for six months at least?

At one time, I thought -W- had a pair

I guess I was wrong.

Or should I have titled this;
Republicans- caving to Dems since 1994?

Anyway, after having the MSM make nasty faces at him- George Bush is fixing to throw Alberto Gonzalas under the train.

I wonder what kind of masochist is going to volunteer next?
Knowing that the first time a Lib points a finger, his time starts running out, wouldn't make for long-term work for anyone with convictions. Are there anyone with a strong moral compass in D.C.?

I said something about this just a little while ago-
The Dems close ranks and defy any outsider to try to bring any of their party to justice.
The Repubs fall all over themselves trying to be the first to start pulling the offender toward the railing.

Too bad Fred Tompson is a Republican, I'd vote for him. EXCEPT that he'd never make it to the R.N.C. as a candidate because he'd never make it passed the metal detectors with all the knives in his back.

GAWD, I wish we had a Conservative party with some intestinal fortitude.

Just curious

Look at these pictures carefully.

What do you notice?




No! Not her boobs.

She salutes better than alot of Dems who were in 'Nam.

I have the TV on as backgound noise

I'm surfing my blogroll, and I hear- again the young, concerned childeren asking about their future.

You know- the ones asking where their SocSec will be? the ones wondering about their healthcare, etc,,,
All bought and paid for by AARP.

The fact that AARP have been fundemental in foiling ANYTHING that might have minimised their goodies just dues -SocSec reform, Bush's Perscription Drug boondogle, more bennies no matter what, "If you change anything, seniorsa will be eating dogfood!"

Now they're putting out TV ads
*to help the childeren*
is kinda like cr@pping in the foyer and telling the guests that they need to clean it up, because they stepped in it.

She said, "You put coffee in that?"

The recipe for tonite was pan fried round steaks, about 3/4" thick- and Cottage fries.

The steaks came from a round roast @ $4.27/lb.
Salted and peppered on both sides and left to mull their fate.

The potatoes were sliced on the thin side (around 1/16"), and the onions at about 1/4".
The lard was just right on medium high heat, and in went the taters and onions with a dash of garlic powder and salt.

The steaks went on the lard at a high medium heat, just to get that charring taste---ummm burnt flesh!

The fries and steaks finished at about the same time (for once), and they were introduced to each other for the next step.

Using the steak pan with the good stuff stuck to the bottom, add a good splash of coffee, enough flour to make a gravy, add to taste garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Mix until the stuff on the bottom mixes well with everything else.

Let a Brit taste and see her expression that those ingredients taste so good.
I would call it Red eye gravy, but I think that's reserved for ham.

I also got most of the lawn mowed today.
Maybe the wood will be dried out enough from all this rain to finish the new entertainment tomorrow.

I hate to do this

But, some people need a refresher


Mole Hill

Now, about those seven prosecutors who got fired for not doing their jobs
(of looking into voter fraud by Dems).
I have two things to say:
  1. Genralissimo Reno fires ALL federal prosecutor's when the Clinton's started running the White House. The First Liar calmed the minor stir by telling his MSM pals that, "Hey- everyone does it!" 'Nuff said.
  2. They should have fire the Prostituter that railroaded the ONLY people who are actually doing something to protect the border. But then again, that would have p*ssed off the smugglers who are running Bush's immigration policy.

More "Clues from Kurt"

This little gem is for the pendejo in Hondo who decided that (s)he'd waited long enough and was going to cross the road anyway.

You're at a minor crossroad on a state highway. If a semi is coming at you at 40 MPH, he CAN'T stop for your dumb @ss no matter how empty he is. The truck and trailer STILL weigh over 15 tons.

Todays driving lesson:
If you're not sure if you have the room to go......DON'T!
Because you most likely don't.

I'll have to ask my boss to look for tire marks tomorrow, I know the trailer was hopping.

Some Ideas for the latest D.C. anti-war march

I got to do a full workload last night! Yeahh!
Our main customer has all it's lines back up and reprogrammed!

Be sure to buy lots of Sams (Walmart) and H.E.B. sodapop!

I was listning to talk radio as I was driving, and thought of some other slogans for the anti-war marchers , , , That I'd use if I were protesting.

Like the Libertards are going to do while defacing "The Wall" to show how much they 'Support the Troops (but not the mission)'.


Get us out of KOSOVO!

Where is the EXIT STRATIGY for KOSOVO?

The REAL unilateral war


Iraq, not like Viet Nam
There are no steps on top of the embassy.

Loosing wars since 1975

Feel free to use them at your next anti-war rally.

Because we KNOW it isn't all about Bu$HitlerHaliburntonMcChimpy.

Uncle Jimbo is back!

No, not that one,

UNCLE Jimbo!
He's giving good advice for y'all heading up to the "Gathering of Eagles" in D.C.

Sounds good, except for maybe Pelosi's Capitol Police.
I mean, are they the ones she ordered to let those the peacful anti-war protesters deface her steps?

Anyway, that "rate the show" sounds good for ANY hippy Socialist/Marxist Bush hating anti-war rally.

H/T the Good eL T.

Blogroll and stuff

I was going to add links to my blogroll today, but lost most of them when I installed a new (older version 1.5 Beta 1) version of Firefox, because the other one lept crashing.

I don't know, maybe it's this computer? since I had F/F 2.0 (the Latest and Best!!!) it's been running like cr@p. I even enabled IE 7 yesterday just to get online. And yes, I had a full cache of spyware when I ran adaware.

All my computers have been slow today, I don't know if the hail did something to the transiver on the dish, or it's ovecast, or itt's just spring break I'm paying for a faster service, I want my faster loading!

The plants finally decided that it's spring. I don't know if it's a coincidence, or that it took a 7" rainfall to decide them, but everything is green or budding.

Cr@p, now I HAVE to fix the lawnmowers carb.

Did I mention AlGores' internet is really, really slow?
Kinda like fast dial-up.

I have the History Channel on

The just got done with "The History of Bullets".

Ok, they got to talking about the new stuff coming out, and 'smart' bullets that can go through body armor and then act like hollow points.
They brought up the L.A. machine gun bank robbers and how out-gunned the L.A.P.D. was.

I got to thinking. Yeah, that's Cali- anyone with a rifle that could have taken care of those two would have been afraid to loan them out for fear of prosecution.

We had a thing in Austin - the U.T. tower sniper of about twenty years ago. After several shots out, he was pinned down by citizens and their rifles until the P.D. finally got an officer up there to finish the job. No citizens were arrested for using their firearms- because the Texas police understood that not ALL firearms owners are trying to kill them, and need their weapons taken away.

Hi, my name is Kurt and I own a gun

I own several as a matter of fact. My wife owns two also.

I just thought I'd throw that out so certain Anti-Gun Liberals wouldn't have to kill more trees to let you know.

I'm also letting you know, because now, we can officially shoot your criminal @ss if you break into our house!

The Texas Fair Defense Act [SB 159] (PDF- sorry) was voted on and overwhelmingly approved by both sides of the aisle to be voted on tomorrow. I think. The website is kinda ... really not easily navigable.

Anyway, if you crooks wanna come over and play; just let me know your flavor:
We have rifles- a 30-06 (1903-A3 where I can take you out at the top of the hill, and your engine block, too). A .22 semi-auto that Karen wants target practice with, she hasn't tried a moving target yet.

We also have 4 pistols in different calibers and actions ranging from .22 to .50 cal and revolvers and auto loading pistols to muzzle loaders (makes a nice hole that shatters bone).

Sorry Hammer, I forgot to credit you for directing me to Misha.
