feelin' old

so tonight the X-Files is back for a 6 episode event. man we watched that thing RELIGIOUSLY when it was on. really felt betrayed when it ended too. went to see the movie and was disappointed. hopefully what we see tonight will  spark a fire in older and younger viewers, and give us something fun to watch again.

a few years ago some new hires came through while they were still in training, to shadow us for a day.  me, being who i am,  had them stand to introduce themselves.  a tall young man stood to tell us his name , and answered when asked why he was here, because he wanted to be an FBI agent.  short female stands, gives us her name, then says the EXACT SAME THING.

Christ people, you haven't even done a shift and you're ready to bounce?

I asked who wanted to be Mulder and who wanted to be Scully, and they at least got that right. 
ersatz agent mulder is still with us and I have no idea what has become of our aspiring agent scully.

as junior mulder is still present, I refer to him by that name.  another new guy was present recently, and asked why I call demi-mulder mulder.  the story was explained to him by our nicknamed subject employee to the under informed employee this way; "so before we could stay up late and watch tv, there was this show on about a couple of FBI agents who hunted aliens..."
"like illegals?"
me smiling.
"no, like space aliens", and he continues to explain the rest of the show, what happened on his first ride along, and why I refer to him as mulder.

newer guy turns to inform me he never saw the shows.  told him to check it out on hulu or netflix and walked away feeling my age and wondering about this new generation.  if it wasn't for office phones they would probably wonder what scully was holding in the picture at the top.

will we be the turtle or the frog?

many of you are probably familiar with this fable.  it's origins appear to be from the middle ages and Persia of all places.  there seems to be 2 main variations, both involve a  antagonist, the scorpion, and a protagonist, the frog (victim), and the turtle (would be victim).

both stories start out the same, the deadly scorpion wants a free ride across the water (ocean).  both the frog and the turtle are concerned that if, as solicited, they carry the known dangerous scorpion across the blue feature, they will be stung and drown.  the scorpion reminds both that it would be stupid for him to do this, as he too would drown.

allowing  the scorpion to talk them into the risky business of helping him,  both give him a ride and are predictably stung. as he drowns, the frog asks why did you do this, we both die now, to which the scorpion replies, because it is my nature.

the turtle, with his hard shell, delivers the scorpion to the far shore after being stung and tells the scorpion,  "Are you not the most wicked and ungrateful of reptiles? But for me you must either have given up your journey, or have been drowned in that stream, and what is my reward? If it had not been for the armour which God has given me, I should have been stung to death." "Blame me not," said the scorpion, in a supplicatory tone, "it is not my fault; it is that of my nature; it is a constitutional habit I have of stinging. the turtle then drowns the scorpion.

the moral of the story is that fundamental evil can not change.

France and other parts of the EU got to see that this past friday.  AGAIN. STILL.

we got to see it in Beirut, Ft. Hood, New York, the Pentagon, Shanksville, Benghazi, Aden, Nairobi, New York again, Beirut again, Lockerbie, Port Said, Dar es Salaam, Little Rock, Chattanooga, Moore, Boston, Khobar,  Riyadh .  this list is just of the attacks i can think of, off the top of my head, (so to speak), which have occurred in my lifetime, and is probably incomplete.

as we found out, not every german was a nazi, we should believe that not every muslim is a jihadi.
please remember we discovered this after defeating the nazi's.  we also found tons of nazi sympathizers.

ask yourself if we allow the government to continue to let "refugees" into the country, under a highly suspect vetting process, if we will be able to defeat the jihadist's, and find their sympathizers.  or  will we be the frog in the fable.

i'm voting for the turtle.

 this post is dedicated to the memory of those that the politicians, media talking heads, and activists have long forgotten, and hope that you will as well.

the gun control lie rolls on (an obama production)

another sad story for families and friends of students this time at a college in Oregon.

 however i about fell out of the chair watching barry sprint to the cameras as the bodies began to cool and the shell casing stopped spinning to lecture us yet again about gun violence.

now being the son of a highly accomplished bullshiter, i recognize the smell on barry's breath, from across the room, and he was on TV.

We know that states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths.

So the notion that gun laws don't work, or just will make it harder for law-abiding citizens and criminals will still get their guns, is not borne out by the evidence.

now which state does Chicago squat in with it's 396 homicides so far this year?

beastiful Baltimore, with their 250 homicides year to date?  thats 39 more than all of last year.

the District of Columbia?  120 killings so far this year, which is 48% higher than the same time as last year, and 15 more than all of 2014.

two of these municipalities have been sued, had to defend themselves at TAXPAYER expense, in front of the supreme court, and lost.

Maryland consistently ranks near the top  yearly  for gun deaths due to blood in the streets Baltimore.
registering 293 homicides in 2010 as a state, 224 from Baltimore, 171 were attributed to gun violence. that's 76% kids, from 1 shithole town.

And I would particularly ask America's gun owners who are using those guns -- properly, safely, to hunt, for sport, for protecting their families — to think about whether your views are being properly represented by the organization that suggests its speaking for you.

i will tell you without hesitation mr. pRESIDENT that without the NRA, District of Columbia v Heller, and McDonald v Chicago NEVER get heard, and the people who live there would be considered criminals for exercising their 2nd amendment rights.

stop pretending to be worried about my safety barry, be honest just fucking once, and say you hate an armed citizenry.

exercise a right smartly handed down to you by the founders, and support the only group opposing the tyrannical turds on the left.

instead of stop snitching, try STOP LYING

this article is the work of  RICH  LOWRY over  National Review, and cuts directly to the heart of the matter.

now i personally don't want to call the perceived liar dorian johnson a liar, but the grand jury sure as fuck didn't believe the bullshit he was peddling.  the other 2 we know to be liars.  the last one is just an asshole in the company of a liar.


We have heard a lot lately about tensions between the police and the communities that they serve, and the urgent need to reduce them. Here’s an easy first step: Stop lying about the cops.
The “national conversation” about race and policing we’ve been having ever since Michael Brown was shot by Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo., last summer has been based on lies. The lie that Officer Wilson shot Brown while he had his hands up and was pleading “Don’t shoot.” The lie that New York City policemen targeted Eric Garner for a violent arrest because he was black. The lie, peddled especially by the progressive prince of New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio, that the police are racist.

These are the lies that fuel hatred for the police, because if the police routinely execute black men in cold blood and serve a thoroughly racist system, they deserve to be hated. They should be the subject of nightly protests. They should be showered with obloquy. They should be harried by Attorney General Eric Holder. They should be considered a stain on the national conscience to be extricated at all costs.
This is the line of reasoning that leads to protesters chanting: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”
His rote praise of the police notwithstanding, especially now that he is under so much political pressure after the murders of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, Mayor de Blasio is deeply invested in this smear. It is why he has made career anti-police agitator Al Sharpton practically deputy police commissioner. It is why he considers the police a clear and present danger to his biracial son, Dante. It is why he said the tragic death of Eric Garner in police custody was the product of “centuries of racism.”
The logic of the de Blasio view tends toward the conclusion that the police are unbelievably insidious: They recruit people of all races to go into dangerous neighborhoods on the pretense of protecting innocent people there, when in reality the mission is to harass black kids and, should the opportunity arise, kill them. If this were true, it would make the police as a class not just racists, but sociopaths.
It fails the basic standard of common sense, and defies the numbers. As Heather Mac Donald of City Journal writes: “Criminologists have spent decades trying to prove that the overrepresentation of blacks and Hispanics in prison demonstrates that the criminal justice system is racist. And each time they fail. Even the most left-wing academics have been forced to admit that crime, not race, determines criminal justice outcomes.”
Police go where the crime is, and at considerable risk to themselves. Surely, if their own comfort and safety were all that mattered to them, they would spend all their time patrolling the poshest neighborhoods in America.
Police critics have taken Ferguson and Garner and have woven them into a narrative of reckless disregard for the lives of blacks. After the grand jury declined to indict in the Garner case, de Blasio referred to a “profound” crisis. The numbers suggest the opposite: As crime has declined — thanks, in part, to rigorous policing — police interactions with the public have declined and have involved fewer instances of the use of force.
Our national conversation has been a national fever. Now, perhaps it will break. As Jaden Ramos, the 13-year-old son of Rafael Ramos, wrote in a heartbreaking Facebook post about his dad, “Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help.” There is more wisdom in that simple statement than in most of the cable chatter, protest chants, and op-eds written in the wake of Ferguson and the Garner case.
If we really want to reduce tensions between the community and men like Officer Rafael Ramos, it is imperative, first, to stop lying about the police.

where are sarah's critics now?

Drill Baby Drill !!!

remember in 07 and 08 when everyone was calling Sarah Palin nuts for that sentiment?  well due to evil oil companies fracking,  fuel prices here are below $1.80 a gallon here.

oh yeah, she's crazy i forgot.  crazy like a fox.

go ahead and thank her now AMERICA, it's her and not the vacationer in chief you have to credit for cheap gas.

you are welcome ungrateful liberals.

...with your shield, or upon it.

congratulations to Mark Dantonio and the 2014 Michigan State Spartans.  down by 20 points to Baylor in this years Cotton Bowl, entering the 4th quarter, junior Connor Cook shook of earlier mistakes and led a 21 point comeback to win 42-41.  this is cook's 2nd big bowl win, having beat Stadford last year in the Rose Bowl.  the win also caps the Spartan careers of Jeremy Langford,  the probable Cotton Bowl defensive MVP Marcus Rush and coach Pat Narduzzi, under who's tutelage the Spartans beat hated in state rival Michigan 6 out of 7 tries.

it was a thrilling game and should serve as a reminder to all who watched or participated to never, ever, quit.
