Boy I love a good conversation

I had a chance to talk with Korean War Vet this morning. We discussed several current topics over coffee.

One of the things that almost made me choke as I was taking a swallow of coffee was this:

"The I’D RATHER BE KILLING COMMUNISTS bumper stickers are making a comeback and that's fucking great. There is only one cure for the disease of Communism. It is not a red pill, and it is not a blue pill. It is a lead pill, traveling through their fucking skulls at 2700 feet per second!"

Zero Gravity Day

Planetary Alignment On Jan 4, 2015 Will Decrease Gravity For 5 Minutes Causing Partial Weightlessness.

Strange natural occurrences are happening in the world today. But nothing more magnificent than the one you will experience on January 4, 2015. 

According to British astronomer Patrick Moore, at exactly 9:47 PST AM on January 4th, Pluto will pass directly behind Jupiter, in relation to Earth. This rare alignment will mean that the combined gravitational force of the two planets would exert a stronger tidal pull, temporarily counteracting the Earth’s own gravity and making people virtually weightless. Moore calls this the Jovian-Plutonian Gravitational Effect. 

Moore told scientists that they could experience the phenomenon by jumping in the air at the precise moment the alignment occurred. If they do so, he promised, they would experience a strange floating sensation.

I'm going to try... Who'd miss the chance to feel that rarity without requiring Ketamine? Not me is who.

ISIS has forced 'thousands' of kidnapped girls into sexual slavery in the last five months

Islamic State is kidnapping thousands of women and young girls to be traded in open markets as sex slaves for as little as £16 each, it was revealed today.

A shocking report by Amnesty International lays bare for the first time the true depth of depravity with which IS fighters are treating their female captives, tearing them from their families and subjecting them to sustained and violent rape and domestic enslavement.

Puberty is not requisite to be an IS sex slave, with girls as young as 12 and their mothers being dragged by their hair onto cattle trucks and herded to a 'sorting office' where they are classified by age, education and marital status, The Times reported.

I don't have much want to this week for blogging. 

Enjoy Christmas time and spend time with your family even if they still can't stand to be around your drunk ass.

Have a Merry Christmas to those of you that participate. For those of you that don't, have a Merry whatever too.

This makes me smile

Victory for thousands of Yazidis trapped on Iraqi mountains since August after Kurdish forces claim they have ended ISIS's siege of Mount Sinjar.

Kurdish forces are celebrating their greatest victory over ISIS after claiming they have broken the five-month siege of Mount Sinjar - liberating thousands of trapped Yazidis.

Around 8,000 fighters launched a two-pronged attack which they said had succeeded in opening a wide corridor to allow members of the Yazidi minority to escape.
In the initial phase of the assault they recaptured eight villages - killing 80 ISIS militants in the process - and Peshmerga commanders say the evacuation of those trapped on the mountain will begin today.

The Kurds are the real deal. Peshmerga translates to "those who face death"...

Recipe pass along

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Venison Tenderloin

2 lbs venison tenderloins (a single deer loin) **Also known as Backstrap to people who know the difference. I didn't write this recipe, just sharing and correcting. There are tenderloins inside the ribcage near the pelvis. The backstraps are outside the ribcage straddling the spine from the front shoulder to 3/4's back approximately. The backstraps are huge. The tenderloins... not so huge.**

1/2 lb bacon
3 cups dark brown sugar
2 cups soy sauce (Regular NOT low-sodium)
1/4 cup white sugar (Optional for added Sweetness)


1 - Mix brown Sugar and Soy Sauce (use honey and bbq sauce if you like) together in a bowl. They should combine nicely into a soupy soy liquid.

2 - Put Deer Loin in a cooking tray and pour Brown Sugar/Soy Sauce mixture over loin. Roll tenderloin over in mixture, completely covering it.

3 - Let meat marinate in mixture at least 3 hours or overnight in fridge. It's best to marinate for 8 hours if you have the time. Also GREAT to use a Food Saver or other Vacuum device to Vacuum pack/seal the meat with Marinade. With this method, you can achieve Overnight-level marinade in just a couple hours!

4 - Remove loin from tray, and place on a slotted bake sheet with a drip pan or aluminum foil below to catch dripping. Don't throw away marinade.

5 - Wrap a piece of bacon around the very end of the tenderloin, securing the bacon strip with a toothpick.

6 - Repeat this process until the entire loin is wrapped in ten or so bacon "loops." The tenderloin should look like an arm with a bunch of wrist watches on it, the watches being the bacon strips.

7 - Drizzle remaining marinade over deer loin. You can continue to baste the loin with the marinade throughout the cooking process with either a brush or a turkey baster.

8 - Place on center rack in oven and bake at 350°F for 30-40* minutes. *This should cook the meat to about Medium. For those of you who prefer rare meat (like me), cut the time to 25-30 minutes and then follow with the "OPTION 2" step below regarding searing.

9 - OPTION 1 - with about 10 minutes of cooking time left, you can lightly dust the top of the loin with white sugar. This creates a sweet crust on top of the bacon. Might be too sweet for some. Try doing it on just HALF of the loin to see if you like it!

10 - OPTION 2 - For a crispier crust and crispier bacon, remove Loin from oven and place the Loin(s) directly on a Grill over medium-high heat to sear the bacon and outer loin. (Thanks to all of you reviewers who taught me this. It's a great step for those of us who like a cooked crust and a pink center).

11- Remove from oven and place on cutting board. Using a knife, cut the loin between each strip of bacon so that you have many pieces of meat, each with their own toothpick.

12 - You can eat these pieces directly from the toothpick or remove the toothpick and eat like steak.

Manhunt continues for gunman who shot Waco meteorologist

WACO, Texas - The manhunt continues in Waco after a meteorologist from KHOU's sister station KCEN, was shot outside his news station. Multiple agencies are investigating as they search for the gunman and try to figure out a motive.

"We heard about six or seven gunshots," explained Jim Hice, KCEN's news director. "One right after the other… bam, bam, bam, bam, bam!" 

The shots rang out just before 9 a.m. Wednesday. Hice said at first everyone was just confused.

"We started to hear on the scanners that there was an active shooter outside of KCEN and that's kind of when all the bells went off."

Question for my fellow craftsmen

Which brands of nail guns do you prefer? Is there really that big of a difference in quality from top manufacturers?

I'm asking because I've rekindled my love for sore hands, splinters, and rough cuts of wood. I will be building something similar to this record rack below soon with enough room for a 70" TV in the middle, record player with speakers, Xbox console (Battlefield is a serious deal at my camp, don't judge) and I don't own a brad or finish nailer. I have a DeWalt Framing nailer that blows the doors off just about any of the others I've used, but for this next project I need something a bit less brutal and scarring. Purchases coming soon... Otherwise, the amount of vinyl in my collection will soon be overflowing out of the compound and out into the street...

 Concept drawing :

I really want to do this one right so I don't end up like this poor bastard who bought a pre-fab one from Ikea....

I know I have some needle junkies that visit here. There has to be. Any of you folks ever built anything like the above to accommodate your love for vinyl?

Tell me about it...

Parenting Win

Pigmen Win Again

“The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.”  - George Carlin

After the disgusting example of politicians of both spineless parties bowing down before Wall Street, the military industrial complex and corporate interests this weekend with the passage of a bloated pig of a spending bill totaling $1.1 trillion, how can anyone not on the payroll of the vested interests not admit there is only one party – and it serves only the needs of the wealthy business interests. Obama, champion of the common folk, signed this putrid example of political corruption and corporate capture of the American political system. For all the believers who voted for the red team in the November mid-terms, this is what you got – a bipartisanship screwing of the American people.

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered... That phrase is meant to be a warning for those tho tend to get too greedy at the wrong time. Those who work hard will get what they deserve, but those who try to gain something for nothing will not get very far unless they've got the "law" on their side. Are you seeing the pattern yet? Do you understand how the shell game keeps going? If you read that article and still believe in political party difference, there's not much else I can do for you and there isn't much you'll ever do for me besides prolong my head scratching and amazement as to why people are so incredibly hard headed when it comes to waking up and seeing the system for what it is. I woke up a long time ago...

Confessions of a US Death Squad Commander

Prior to the public release of the existence of the Presidential "Kill List", Secret units comprised of Military, Ex-Military, Intelligence and Ex-Intelligence officers operated under the control of a secret organization within the Federal Government. These units are referred to in the media as "Death Squads".

death squad is an armed group that conducts extrajudicial killings or forced disappearances of persons for the purposes of political repression, genocide, or revolutionary terror. These killings are often conducted in ways meant to ensure the secrecy of the killers' identities. Death squads are often, but not exclusively, associated with police states, one party states, or military dictatorships. It is not unheard of, however, for democratic governments to form death squads.

House approves $1 trillion spending package

WASHINGTON — In a dramatic vote late Thursday evening, the U.S. House narrowly approved a $1 trillion government spending package despite a rare uprising from House Democrats. The bill passed on a 219-206 vote.

Congress was set to approve a two-day stopgap funding bill to give the U.S. Senate time to pass the package and get it to President Obama's desk. Government funding had been scheduled to run out at midnight.

House Democrats derailed plans Thursday afternoon for a vote on the funding bill after lawmakers rebelled over provisions tucked into the measure to roll back regulations on Wall Street and ease campaign finance laws.

Paul Revere and Sam Adams Time Capsule Found at Massachusetts Statehouse

Crews worked carefully Thursday to remove a time capsule dating back to 1795 from the granite cornerstone of the Massachusetts Statehouse, where historians believe it was originally placed by Revolutionary War luminaries Samuel Adams and Paul Revere among others.

The time capsule is believed to contain items such as old coins and newspapers, but the condition of the contents was not known and Secretary of State William Galvin speculated that some could have deteriorated over time.

Originally made of cowhide, the time capsule was believed to have been embedded in the granite cornerstone of the building when construction on the state Capitol began in 1795. Adams was governor of Massachusetts at the time.

It's a dog's and cat's life apparently... Yeah right, they've got it better than I do.

I pulled the spread back this morning as I rose from my slumber to see this at my feet...

That's Bootsy B and Loco. Bootsy B is a Maine Coon, aka Man Coon. Dudes, if you're going to have a feline companion, that's the breed I recommend, as they are famously known for their superior harbinger of death like mousing skills. No shit, nothing moves in The Backyard without his stamp on the permission slip. That size there don't get no bigger. Well maybe, but he's up there in the size category for a domesticated cat. He's THE MAN. His philosophy is simple : If you vermin knock on death's door long enough, I will answer it.

I still get sacrificial offerings to the Altar of Stackz from him in mornings, bodies limp and still warm, laid upon my shower mat that I step out on. And, he just sits there and looks at me as if I'm supposed to take part in his kill. I pretend to sometimes. It's the little things, you know? He's rewarded for his perimeter security skills with fresh heavy cream several times a week. I'm pretty sure he'd walk through hell for me and mine. That lazy fat ass dog of the Smokin' Hot Little Barefoot Gardening Squaw's though, not so much. That's a king size bed just to give you guys a scale reference on how big he is.

Loco is 12. He was a Jack Russell / Border Collie mix pound rescue that took sick with Parvo just two days after we bought him sick from the county shelter. No refunds, by the way. Yeah fuck you too County, he's still kicking. We just shared a Birthday and he even got a piece of cake, as usual. Like his fat ass needed it. He's not much on party hats though. He's a cantankerous old fart who is obsessed with snatching your food off your plate when you're not looking or are out of the room. Yeah, that's a low down dirty bastard right there ain't it? One time in our young partying lives, we were so broke that we only had enough money to buy 4 double cheeseburgers for the entire day's meals. I got up to go get a glass of water and come back to a missing cheeseburger and this motherfucker was behind the couch eating the paper too and in a hurry, for he knew the storm he'd just created was about to come crashing down upon his shores. From that moment on I've never trusted him around my food. I've even gone as far as to eat in the bathroom and blow my food breath through the door so he could not see or hear me eating it, only smelling the goodness wafting through the door crack. In dog psychology, I've learned a few things over the years. If you take away one of their primary senses, it drives them fucking crazy, especially if they are hell bent on shooting laser eyes through you as you eat and as soon as you look at them they turn their heads like they weren't looking at you. Yeah bitch, I'll play your games... Try me. 

Two things in my life I'm dead serious about. 

1 - Don't touch or fuck with a man's hat. 

2 - Don't touch or fuck with a man's plate. 

Have a great afternoon.

Senate report: CIA misled public on torture

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The CIA's harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees during the Bush era didn't work, were more brutal than previously revealed and delivered no "ticking time bomb" information that prevented an attack, according to an explosive Senate report released Tuesday.

The majority report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee is a damning condemnation of the tactics -- branded by critics as torture -- the George W. Bush administration deployed in the fear-laden days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The techniques, according to the report, were "deeply flawed" and often resulted in "fabricated" information.

The report is reigniting the partisan divide over combating terrorism that dominated Washington a decade ago. Democrats argue the tactics conflict with American values while leading members of the Bush administration insist they were vital to preventing another attack.

From the minds of babes

So I had a birthday yesterday... Yay, another year older and even more arthritis!

I get home to the compound and the kiddos run up, grab my paws, and drag me into the kitchen for presents and a few laughs as we eat dinner. 

They hand over the box and I start admiring their art work. Then, the question of "who put the banana on daddy?" pops into my mind.

I had to seriously contain my laughter as to not make them think they did something bad. I swear they don't script better comedy than that. They are truly of my DNA, there is no denying that.

What do you guys think?

Here's what was inside...

They truly know me, I swear. Freakin' sweet right?

Police: Man assaulted wife with McChicken sandwich

DES MOINES, Iowa — A picky eater was jailed Tuesday for reportedly using a McDonald's McChicken sandwich as a weapon against his pregnant wife, according to a police report.

Marvin Tramaine Hill II, 21, admitted to police that he threw the sandwich at his wife "because he doesn't like them." Hill was arrested for simple domestic assault and taken to the Polk County Jail.

Des Moines police met with Hill at the couple's home and Hill told them it was actually his wife who assaulted him.

Hill said his wife woke him up around 1 p.m. with a McChicken in hand. He admitted to police that he became upset and threw the sandwich at her, then picked up some of the bun, throwing it at her again.

Kalashnikovs get new look to boost sales as Russian sanctions bite

Here's another ripple effect of Western sanctions on Russia and the country's troubled economy: Gun maker Kalashnikov is giving its famed weapons and brand a makeover.

Its sales suffering, Kalashnikov on Tuesday unveiled new-look combat weapons. It also said it will introduce clothing and accessory lines.

The launch, which came complete with girls in tight fitting dresses brandishing machine guns, was designed to whet the world's appetite for assault rifles.
