What’s with all the cars? I thought the economy was kicking ass?

Monday, May 19th, 2014

What happens to new cars when people don’t have the money to buy them?  Aren’t they still making them?  The answers are Nothing and Yes.   Read the article Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go to Die.  Mind-boggling.  But hey, Recovery!  (h/t ZeroHedge)

When did country music become castrated?

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

– Wiccapundit

If country music is the New Pop™, these lyrics from Blake Shelton’s “Doing What She Likes” are Exhibit “A”:

She likes it when I call in sick to work
Spend the whole day hanging with her
I might get fired but that’s alright
I’m doin’ what she likes

Really?  What kind of Beta Male bullshit is that?  “Gee Honey, would it be OK if I get fired because I let you tell me to stay home with you?”  Where is David Allan Coe or Johnny “Take This Job and Shove It” Paycheck?  Even wearing a rhinestone suit, Porter Wagoner was more manly than this.

Country music, RIP.

Jimmy Carter’s enduring failure.

Monday, February 10th, 2014

– Wiccapundit

How many of us remember a time when the United States did not have a Cabinet-level Department of Energy?  Does anyone remember why it was established?

In 1977, with 40.5 % of U.S. crude oil supplied from foreign sources, Jimmy Carter announced the creation of the DOE with the statement: “Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 – never.”

As of 2014, nearly 37 years after its creation, with 16,000+ employees and an annual budget north of $30 billion, the DOE produces exactly nothing in the way of energy.   More than 61% of U.S. crude oil comes from foreign sources.   The DOE has been a complete and utter failure at the one thing it was created to do –  reduce our reliance on foreign crude oil.

And these are the people that want to be in control of the provision of your health care.

Thanks, Jimmy.

Meat Parade

Friday, November 15th, 2013

– Wiccapundit

Jeez, it appears that every organization established for honoring actual achievement has become what George C. Scott referred to the Oscars™ as: “a meat parade.”

Exhibit 1:

Yep.  Fucking Al Gore.   For that Global Warming Scam that he’s made beaucoup bank off of.

Exhibit # 2:

Some current nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

Yes, Deep Purple, and Link Wray (the inventor of the fuckin’ POWER CHORD, the cornerstone of rock guitar), which means these artists are currently NOT in the Hall of Fame.

Some past inductees:

Ahmet Ertegun (Founder of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.   Ohhh, I get it.)

Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five (I yield to no one in my enjoyment of “The Message,” GF&TFF’s seminal rap hit.  But …, they are a rap groupRap.   Should Led Zeppelin be nominated for a Rap Industry Award?  In 2007, Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner used a technicality on the vote dating procedure to deny induction to The Dave Clark Five, because he felt the Hall couldn’t go another year without inducting a rap act.  Starting to see how things work here?)

Madonna (Oh for fuck’s sake.)

Bill Monroe (I loves me some Bill Monroe, but he was a bluegrass player, not a rock n’ roller, despite being called an “Early Influence”™ by the Hall of Fame panjandrums.)

Jelly Roll Morton (Seriously?  The self-proclaimed inventor of jazz?)

Notables who are NOT in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

Chicago (A rock band with a horn section, with a guitarist  – Terry Kath – that Jimi Hendrix considered way better than himself.  Think about that for a moment.)

Grand Funk Railroad (WTF?  Can you say The Red Album, people?  The group that sold out Shea Stadium quicker than the Beatles did?  You’re killing me here.)

Iron Butterfly (In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baby.  Who didn’t get stoned in the 70’s listening to this?)

Robin Trower (Too Rolling Stoned, Bridge of Sighs, and on and on … .)

I’m done with all this.  Any organization that would give me an award is not one I respect enough to accept an award from.

The Sex Pistols refused to attend when inducted, calling the museum “a piss stain.” That’s the rock n’ roll attitude, my friends.

Madonna. Sheesh.

My Obama criticism: Will I be banned for life?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

– Wiccapundit

A rodeo clown in Missouri who made fun of King Barack the Thin-Skinned has been banned for life from performing in Missouri.

Really?  What was that dusty old First-Something-Or-Other we used to believe in?

Oh yeah.  First Amendment.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Here’s my two cents.  Barack (Barry) Hussein (Soetoro) Obama is a pusillanimous pisspot, a narcissicistic child, a tinpot dictator with delusions of godhood (h/t Star Trek, The Original Series; episode: The Trouble With Tribbles), an incompetent Peter Principle putz, an Affirmative Action asswipe with no discernible talent other than persuading guilty white liberals to feel good about themselves by voting the decline of the United States into actual fact.

Is that enough to get me banned for life?

Damn, it’s hard to get the attention of the Elites™.

Fuck you Barry and the donkey (ass) you rode into town on.

Support Tuffy Gesling!

It’s a new year, and we’re still here.

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Yes, Obama is still a dick.  Yes, the Republicans are still spineless.  Yes, the Free Shit Army™ still thinks the party will go on forever.

However, things will change, because things always change.  Anyone who believes that ANYTHING is static in this life probably still listens to 8-track tapes in their car.

One idea that has been floating around is the possibility of significant restrictions on guns, or worse:

Bringing the War Back Home. “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland”: Getting the military to start preparing for the violent repression of its own citizenry. US Army “deep thinker” creates an “enemy” out of the Tea Parties & “extremist militias.” “Red Teaming” from an Ignorance-Inspired Faulty Premise.

The response to that idea is this bit of fiction:

“What I Saw At The Coup”

Or this bit of non-fiction:

What you’ll see in the rebellion.

Hey Lefties: let’s do the math:

On the one hand –

Number of firearms in the United States: 279 million + (est.).  This number is getting larger, not smaller.

Number of households in the United States owning guns: 43-55 million (est.).  This is based on Gallup polling.  The number is likely larger due to the number of people who would not admit this fact to an anonymous pollster.

Number of hunting licenses issued in the U.S. in 2011: 14,974,534.  This is the number of licenses issued for hunters to take to the field prepared to take the life of a living thing.

Number of deer hunters: 10,000,000+ (est.).  This is the number of hunters intending and prepared to take down targets weighing between 130 and 290 pounds.

Current dues-paying NRA members: 4,300,000 (est.).  There are likely a considerably larger number who agree with the NRA’s positions who are not actual members of the organization.

On the other hand –

Number of law enforcement officers in the United States: 800,000+ (est.).  This includes everything from FBI and U.S. Marshals to county sheriff’s deputies to metropolitan police officers to probation officers to postal inspectors to fish and game wardens.

Number of members of the combined armed forces of the United States: 2,315,958.   This includes both active duty and reserve Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.  It also includes every MOS (military occupational specialty) from combat-trained troops to benefits administrators, personnel clerks, naval radar operators, truck mechanics, OB/GYN doctors, and cooks.  Actual number of combat-ready troops: an estimate of 10-20% are infantry-type troops, which would result in a number of “combat troops” approximately 450,000+ worldwide, including in active combat zones such as Afghanistan as well as non-combat areas like South Korea or Germany.

So Lefties, how does the equation work out?

Let’s assume that your annointed one Barack the First decides to make not just gun restriction or gun registration, but gun confiscation the liberal wet dream of 2013.  With the stroke of a pen signing any such legislation, and assuming that the Supreme Court does not stand in the way, your Precious has immediately turned the most right-wing-nutball, black helicopter, tin-foil-hat conspiracy theory into actual U.S. law.  Not some NRA talking-point fund-raising scare tactic, but actual public policy enforced by Federal law.

If only 10% of the estimated number of gun owners in the country refused to comply with an order to turn in their guns, this would be more than 2.5 million people.  This is less than a quarter of the number of people who hunt deer every year.  The ones likely to resist would  not be the ones who have grandpa’s old bird gun in the closet, but avid hunters and shooting sportsmen who are in possession of semi-automatic, military-caliber rifles, or modern, high-quality, large-caliber, scoped hunting rifles.  These people are familiar with their weapons, they practice with them, and most of them are used to shooting and killing at a distance, albeit game that doesn’t shoot back.  Do you think these people would just roll over and hand in their guns?

Let’s assume that every combat-qualified soldier is returned to the U.S. mainland from every foreign posting in the world,  Added to the number of LEOs, you get a number just over 1,250,000.  (We’re ignoring for the moment this blatant violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits the use of the U.S. military in law enforcement operations.)  Of this number, many are politically conservative, NRA members, or military members who take their oaths to protect the Constitution seriously.  How many of these do you think would be willing to enforce a law disarming the American public, or to shoot any who refused to cooperate, many of whom would be their friends, neighbors, and even family?

In truth, a significant percentage of those tasked with the distasteful job of going door to door to round up weapons would simply refuse.  Those that carried out this thankless task would be literally walking into the musket fire.  And your fantasy that “gun nuts wouldn’t be able to stand up to jets, drones, and tanks, etc.?”  You really believe that anyone in the military would be willing to drop a smart bomb on an American neighborhood, or take out a soccer mom’s van with a Hellfire missile from a drone, or drive a tank up the Main Street of any American city?  How many non-gun-owning Americans would draw the line well before that?  And as far as whether a bunch of rifle-toting patriots could hold the U.S. military at bay, see Afghanistan.  We’ve been there for ten years, and illiterate cave-dwelling goatherds with rifles have been bleeding us white the entire time.   The largest, most modern military in the world has been unsuccessful in pacifying a country about the size of Texas.  Try doing it to the entire continental United States, but with the added complication of shooting not the Taliban, but the guy who works at the local grocery store or car dealer.

Liberals: would you be willing to strap on the body armor, pick up a weapon, and knock on the door of someone who just might shoot you in the head for your trouble?  Would you be willing to countenance the utter repudiation of the Second and Fourth Amendments, and watch (much less participate in) the cops search houses from top to bottom looking for contraband guns?  What ever happened to “keep your laws off my body?”  Or does that only apply to laws preventing you from rooting out a living thing from your uterus?

Face it, Lefties – those of you who constantly mewl that you are part of the “reality-based community” – the math does not favor you.   If you try this, if you take it to its ultimate conclusion, you will lose badly.

Here’s the deal: you leave us alone and we’ll leave you alone.  You don’t try to disarm us and we won’t shoot you for trying to disarm us.

If you don’t?

We will be disappointed.

4th Amendment Over: Public Buses Adding Microphones To Record Conversations

 Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that would give them the ability to record and store private conversations, according to documents obtained by a news outlet.

The systems are being installed in San Francisco, Baltimore, and other cities with funding from the Department of Homeland Security in some cases, according to the Daily, which obtained copies of contracts, procurement requests, specs and other documents.

The systems use cables or WiFi to pair audio conversations with camera images in order to produce synchronous recordings. Audio and video can be monitored in real-time.

Right.  Because the greatest threat to the safety the citizens of the United States is some blue-collar, transit-dependent schlub trying to get by in the Obama economy, bitching about his life while riding the bus.  As if Mahmoud and Muhammed and all the other good little jihadis are planning the world takeover by islam in their secret planning sessions while riding the Local.  Have these bureaucrats even ridden the bus lately?  Don’t they know that nobody talks to anybody else on the bus?  Sheesh.  And if some islamic wackjob IS plotting something, who’s going to translate the recorded conversations from Farsi?

My suggestion?  Everyone riding the bus should get on, look up at the camera, flip the bird, and say “Fuck Homeland Security.”  Just like George Carlin talked about in the ’70s when he thought the FBI was tapping his phone.  He would answer the phone: “Fuck Hoover.  Hello?”

“PSY” is Korean for “jackass”

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

– Wiccapundit

The seemingly soft and unthreatening Korean K-pop rapper PSY, who has gotten millions of people to dance in a stupid fashion to his catchy “song” Gangnam Style, is actually virulently anti-American, as evidenced by the lyrics to a song by South Korean rock band N.E.X.T. that he sang in a 2004 concert:

Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives

Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture

Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers

Kill them all slowly and painfully

He is, of course, trying to sanitize his past history in order to enjoy the fruits of his current world adulation.  One sign of the impending Apocalypse?  That over 900,000,000 million views of his video have been recorded on YouTube.  Compare: the 1958 performance of Beethoven’s masterful Ninth Symphony, performed by the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Herbert von Karajan (the gold standard for this piece) and including an in-her-prime Leontyne Price singing soprano: 59,000 views.  Seriously? WTF?

Hey PSY, here’s a little statistic for you: over 33,000 “fucking Yankee” soldiers died to prevent the country you were born in from becoming the same Marxist “People’s” shithole that North Korea has become.  This happened before you were even a randy gleam in your daddy’s eye, which you seem not to know as apparently you have never studied Korean history.  Had Americans not died to protect the sovereignty of South Korea, you would have grown up in a regime that has created such widespread starvation among its people that malnutrition has caused the average North Korean to be between 1 and 3 inches shorter than the average South Korean.  In the late 1990’s, North Korea experienced a famine that caused upwards of 3,500,000 people to die of starvation, out of a population of about 22 million.  When 15% of your population dies from state-induced lack of food, what do you do?  Why, you give it a pithy name: “the Arduous March.”  Man, those Commies have a catchy phrase for everything.

If you had grown up under conditions like those that exist today in North Korea, you would not be “rapping” for a high-bling living, you would be laboring in a prison camp and eating your stolen pork raw so the guards wouldn’t catch you cooking it and beat the crap out of you.  Your fame consists entirely of creating a catchy song paired with a silly dance, which makes you something of a one-hit wonder.   Even the Hokey Pokey (which by the way was written in 1857) is a catchy song with a silly dance.  People are still singing and performing that song and dance today.  Do you think anyone will be doing the Gangnam Style dance in six months?  Can you say “Hey, Macarena?”

Bonus add-on:  President Obama and Michelle, despite the controversy over PSY’s ugly past, will nonetheless still attend his Christmas performance.  The President had a great opportunity to engage in a Clintonesque “Sister Souljah” moment, demonstrating his leadership qualities and racking up some props even from conservative commentators, who would have undoubtedly (if grudgingly) given him a thumbs-up for doing the right thing and distancing himself from anti-American sentiment.  That was a high-hanging PR curveball and the President completely whiffed it.  But he is, after all, The Smartest President EVAH.™
