No.1) I actually like my crank-your-own windows in my longtime, and current, every day driver, a '96 Nissan Hardbody (Note No.9 on the list).

No.2) My ride also has a cassette deck (inoperable), which was supplanted about the time of its manufacture with the CD player, which has since, it seems, been replaced by the MP3-type plug-ins. I'm seriously behind the times.

No.8) This kinda threw me a bit. Which effing dinosaur is still sporting a three-speed auto in this day and age? Jeezis, Ford has had an overdriven slushbox in their stable of cars since at least the early eighties, fer Chrissakes! Who, damnit?! Inquiring minds want to know!

No.9) As mentioned, the truly compact pickup is about to pull the Dodo routine, much to my chagrin. I'd buy another similar to the one I have, and may still, if I can get it with a stick and A/C. I'm easy to please.

No.10) Not surprising, but much lamented, by me at least. Color me sympathetic to the old ways, but I actually like the idea of keeping the damned cop-caresque CV/GM series going. It's American!

Strangely, nothing was mentioned about hubcaps (which manufacturer puts those on anymore, anyway?), nor the death of the manual transmission, which I'm still positive to see, and before I die.

No mention of the internal combustion engine being entirely supplanted with Unicorn farts, or even hydrogen fuel cells, in the near future, so I guess us gearhead types can take that to heart.

Simply must get on that Falcon wagon project car I've been drawing on.

Possibly the funniest post I've ever read

The comments aren't too bad either, as some of the suggestions are pure gold.

How's that bailout working for ya, GM?

First, you shuttered the Oldsmobile brand.

Saturn has been in the red since day one, and looks to be on it's way out.

Hummer has always been a joke.

And now that you've taken the Government cheese, it seems the idiots on Capitol Hill are probably pushing you into dissolving Pontiac.

Not much longer for the General, I think, and life support isn't doing him any good.

Rising tides

That was the thought in my head after reading this;

"Stop the pretense: This is a civil war...His election has taken the cold civil war that has gone on beneath the surface in the U.S. for a long time into a phase that is far more emphatic and out in the open. Continuing the pretense that this is merely a shift from a Republican to a Democratic administration will cause this dramatic assault on American values to come out worse in the long run, catastrophically so, in my opinion..."
via Billy Beck.

What made the whole of it clinch for me was in reflection of something that I wrote in the comments section over at the Smallest Minority, a few days ago;
'"While he may be "right", he has no hope of success"Presumably, you are referencing Billy Beck, and I agree, wholeheartedly, there is no hope of success with his position. The concrete versus the abstract tends to refute this; in this case, the dolts keep harping on and on with how much "authority" they have after they "win" at the ballot box, convinced that the "other side" must now, somehow, be their servile little bitches, or something similar.We have no hope of EVER converting these robots (that's all they are) into thinking humans. It's NOT a matter of education. They simply can NOT learn these simple lessons of freedom, either by outside influences, nor self-reflection. It's inconsistent with their personal philosophy of serving the collective, so individual freedom must be wrong (Kevin says this same thing, at least 2 or 3 times per week) The only way to counter this aggression (let's not mince words, that IS what it is) is the one thing the collectivists understand, brute force.Them's the breaks, gents.We all have much at stake in this, personally as well as (hopefully) seeing the continuation of Western Civilization, but our prospects do not look good.If any of you have ideas about what to do, specifically, I'm greatly interested in reading them.'(Emphasis - Ed.)

It appears that I'm not the only one seeing these things from anything close to a unique perspective.

"What will this country look like in three more months? Six more months? Another year?"

That's how long, three months, almost to the day, that Barry's been in the Whore House.

It seems much longer, and that's what got my attention after reading that title quote; What will it all look like in another three to six months?

There isn't anything about what's happened thus far that inspires much confidence in me for the prospects of any meaningful future.

Yet, I'm reading that bit over at Mike's, and the MIAC report, and the bullshit hit piece that was issued by SPLC that led to it, and something else struck me much harder;
"these panicked partisans fulfill their own prophecy. They take law-abiding people who are already suspicious of the government's competence and motives and provide evidence that convinces the citizenry that their suspicions are fully justified." (emphasis - Ed.)
Jeezis he's right. There is historical precedent on this. A certain leftist political group has done exactly that before, and under frighteningly similar economic times.

It would seem from the talking heads in the libelous MSM, the current Donk Admin, the Donk Congress and for the majority of the populous, anything that one who dares speak out against even a brain-fart of what the Lightworker has decreed, (that is how these people react to him, a Messiah of some sort) to be anything other than sedition. This is coming from the same bunch who so openly cried about how dissent was the highest form a patriotism. This kind of behaviour makes those folks nothing more than pure, partisan, Leftist hacks, with nothing other than blind faith and ambition, playing follow-the-leader.

Dissent doesn't seem to be so patriotic, now, does it? Instead, the Left has taken on their typical colors and changed the language of the argument to suit their agenda. And I think Mike concurs;
"...we must ask how it is that the threshold for "threats" is so low as to incorporate traditional forms of American political speech?"
Indeed. There's no standard that they will not move in order to vilify those they commit to "the other side."

Fuck 'em.

His brain needs it's own pipe cleaner

This is why;
"Civil wars are messy, but ours enshrined the concept that secession wasn't allowed, regardless of what previous agreements or understandings had stated or implied."
Whenever I see these kinds of suppositions, I just usually have to admit that I'm dealing with the mind of a 5-year old, or something. It's always important to remember that the concept, here, is that there is nothing more than law dictating the situation that he is describing, and those, as WE ALL SHOULD WELL KNOW, can, and are, routinely ignored.

It's nothing more than an honor system with onorous consequences, carried out by a bunch of thugs who are more than willing to take their "authority" from nothing more than thin air.

What can be done by something as arcane as law can be undone, Mr. Brindle, and in more than one way. That is that.

Add this to the list of reasons we're fucked

The direct implications of this, in principle, could be restated thusly,
"Your production is not your own, your government will take from it what it wants, up to, and including all of it."
And you can bet your ass that a bunch of the stumblefucks who voted for the Lightworker last November feel exactly that way.

I also note that today, over at Survivalblog, George Celente got a link in the Economic and Investing category, and rather openly calls for revolt. The only problem with his thinking is his suggestion that it be free from "Brute Force", to wit;
"I am calling for an 'Intellectual Revolution'. I ask American citizens to free their minds from the tyranny of 'Dumb Think.' This is a revolution about thinking - not manning the barricades. It's about brain power - not brute force."
Sorry, but that's not likely.

Revolutions, even those sparked by intellectual examination of grievances, almost never get traction that way. With little exception, there is violence of some sort, whether by the entrenched power structure attempting to thwart the coup and keep power, or the slaying of the Mad Man by the righteous, or even simple bystander collateral accidents, violence happens.

I'm still quite hopeful that the citizenry of this country will somehow wake up out of its stupor, put the government in its rightful role, that'd be as servant, and begin to produce, like she once did. The recent actions by the Stumblefuck-in-Chief and lackeys of his "economic team" have me considering the rather expedited schedule of the collapse of the Western World. It may actually be working, just not in they way they think it is.

The whole thing is beginning to simmer at the bottom quite nicely, now.

As the Sith say, "Patience, my young apprentice."

While considering the situation of piracy on the high seas...

...over at Tam's, it seems that I may have spoken too soon.

I simply can't believe this shit;
"It "could escalate violence in this part of the world, no question about it,"said Vice Adm. Bill Gortney, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command."
Honest to God, why keep that quisling pussy on the fucking payroll, if he's going to say shit like that after a successful piece of seamanship. Why don't you come on in with the rest of your team for the big win, bitch?

How about saying something like this, in the truest spirit of Col. Jeff Cooper;
"The will to survive is not as important as the will to prevail... the answer to criminal aggression is retaliation"
"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure—and in some cases I have—that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."
Seriously, it's a dangerous world, and more so over off of the horn of the Dark Continent. All ships should be armed to deal with these pirates, and that includes the mentality to prevail, as Cooper clearly stated. Shoot to kill, and quit worrying about escalation. If you don't the pirates surely will escalate their activities, and in a rather ambivalent sort of way.

Gee, I thought everyone already knew

Karl Rove sez;
"Biden a 'blowhard' and 'liar"
Yes, I already knew that.

Doesn't everyone?

Oh, that's right, the overwhelming majority of this country (that be anyone who votes Democrat), is already caught up with the whole 'lying to thyself' thing. It's called cognitive dissonance, and it's a direct result of not being able to fully integrate fact with philosophy.

It's all our fault

I'm waiting for the typical hand-wringers to come out and say that this school shooting can somehow be laid at the feet of the NRA, the powerful, Eeeeeevil gun lobby and the 'lax' U.S. gun laws.


I'm sure it has nothing to do with the concerned party (that'd be the shooter) being a stranger in a strange land, or that he was feeling a bit disenfranchised and prospects for work were scarce. Instead, the whole thing will invariably be blamed on the usual, touchy-feely canards.

Then shit like this gets pushed in the fucking godawful UN.

My Mantra

Long has it been that I have uttered a similar phrase, out loud, and in almost any setting one could think of, irrespective of the argument at hand;

"All I have ever learned has me convinced that the principal crisis of our times is that most of them simply do not think...They don't know what it is (essentially: cognitive integration of facts), let alone how to do it."

The idiots just don't know how to think, and that has been clear to me for years.

I am forced to consider this point whenever I deal with...pretty much everyone around me, every single day.

No wonder our culture is doomed.

Pravda on the Hudson, where stupidity and collectivists rule

I'm not much of one to sit here and argue the finer points of who actually affected the various economies more or less than those described in that link, but what I'd like to suggest is that someone, anyone, with a conscience, step up to that interminable moron, and stick their fist straight in his face.

Then, when they've got him stunned, wrestle him to the ground, and beat him about the head until he can only manage to slobber on himself while taking his food via catheter for the rest of his life.


Because of moronic platitudes like this;
"Here in the United States, many people are understandably wondering whether the $800 billion stimulus program will make much of a difference. They want to know: Does stimulus work? Fortunately, this is one economic question that’s been answered pretty clearly in the last century.

Yes, stimulus works.

When governments have taken aggressive steps to soften an economic decline, they have succeeded. The Germans did it in the 1930s. Franklin D. Roosevelt did so more haltingly, and had more halting results. Even the limp Japanese recovery plan of the 1990s makes the case..."
Excuse me, but it works?!? At what, prolonging the agony and suffering? Keeping the bad shit from being excised from the economy, like the weak getting offed from the strong, in Darwin's modeling?

Obviously, this guy has failed either his education in Econ 101 (or, more likely, education has failed him), or is in the tank for der Zauberer (I'm guessing here, but I'm thinking it's BOTH!).

The time has come to cut out this kind of cancer, folks. And we can just as well start with these kinds of assholes.

Gummint Cheese

So, I was doing my usual morning reading over at Tam's place, and while reading her piece on the perpetually clueless professional victims in London preaching class warfare, I was reminded of a song from years past that was rather apropos.

My high school cross country coach was a huge fan of The Rainmakers, so the team was often subjected to various tunes by same on Saturday mornings while making the drive to the area meet. "Government Cheese" always stuck with me, and was a fitting song to hear on those trips, as it served as metaphor for the upcoming race, I'd always think; "Nobody's going to be out there on the course helping your sorry ass win, so don't be looking for no Gummint Cheese."

Bunches of folks seem to expect to get just that, and concurrently complain about the supposed inequities of their life.

Maybe we free market types with jobs should use this as our own anti-demonstration anthem.

Play it loud.
