Final Thoughts on 2013

Ahh the meme goodness that has passed my wall since the day after christmas as it regards new years. The Game of Thrones meme "Brace Yourselves, for all the people who say they are going to change and never do"

The more things change the more they stay the same.  Meh onward to final thoughts on a few various subject for THIS year..

Veganism, and this one is precipitated by a post on a friends facebook wall that came up on mine.   Fine you want to be Vegan?  That's YOUR perogative...don't tell me however that it's our natural state.  It's not.  We are the Apex Predator on this planet. The very top of the food chain. We are tool using, THINKING hunting, gathering obligate OMNIVORES. Which means EVERYTHING that lives must and in most cases IS...food for us.  There are somethings that just aren't eaten in various cultures due to social taboos but whatever makes you sick to think of eating...someone else somewhere else...considers food. Dogs, Sharks, etc etc.  "but but, killing animals for food is torture and murder!"  Ahh so because plants don't have cute faces and eyes and can't look at you longingly, therefore they don't make good false guilt inducing commercials, that eating plants makes you better?  Sorry that dog won't hunt. Most everything that lives FEEDS on something else.  Including plants. Hell even plants KILL to survive DEAL WITH IT.

Gun Control: Sorry  gun control folks. Your irrational fear of an inanimate object is NOT my problem. Well not until you are STUPID enough to make it my problem by trying to control and restrict my access to a constitutionally protected human right.  That's right I said human right, because everyone has the right of self defense and the ability to put food on the table.  "But think of the children!"  I am, mine if I ever have any and those of my friends and family.   A gun is tool. Nothing more and nothing less. It doesn't have a will of it's own and it's not, no matter how much you chicken yellow twits project upon them...inherently "EVIL"  See that's the thing a lot of "gun control" and the flat out hysteria that goes along with it is based on unreasoning EMOTIONAL projection instead of logic.  Gun Control advocates say gun owners need to "compromise"  See that's one place where they are way off base. When they say "compromise" they mean "give in to our demands or else"  Compromise means 2 sides having a reasonable, rational discussion and coming to a mutually beneficial and mutually agreed upon decision.  BTW gun owners have been "compromising" since the NF Act of 1934.  So go piss up a rope. Frankly we need to rescind every gun control law that has been passed since then.

Global Warming., no sorry it's Climate Change, now.  Antartic Ice is melting at an unheard of rate?  Look at the arctic you morons...the ice there is GROWING at the exact same rate. Nature is keeping itself in balance. Same as it's always done.  It's the warmest year on record!  Uhmm no if you look at science graphs of ice cuttings and such we STILL haven't approached the warmest temps of back in the dinosaur days before humans  So float that boat by someone else.  Matter of fact this has been the longest running cold streak in my memory here in Texas.  Be that as it may...the climate is always changing, balance and self adjusting. Humans have fuck all to do with it and no control whatsoever. To propose otherwise is...hubris.

Politics in the US.  Hmm my thoughts on politics in the US can be summed up thusly. 
Take off and nuke DC from orbit...repeatedly. It's the only way to be sure.

Healthcare:  Healthcare is a service, not a right.  The US despite some of the problems with the system...is still the best healthcare system in the world.  Although the US government after winning their take over bid for an  industry that is 1/3 the US economy, is doing it's level best to destroy it.

just a few random final stray thoughts for the year closing out at midnight tonight.

Remember TANSTAAFL and..

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.

Gun Control works? It's for the children!


This one is going to be quick, dirty, profane and sans links boys and girls. Don't believe what I'm telling you...then look it up for your goddamned selves.  Because we've HAD this fucking conversation before. Repeatedly and it's making me irritable.  Oh and hat tip to my buddy miguel for the spanish language article on this that set my temper raging again.   http://gunfreezone.net/wordpress/

Okay fucking seriously?  I'm tired of the gun control crowd. I'd like to round them all up, strip them naked, strap chutes on them and then drop them into some of the more...."enlightened" areas of the world. Africa? pick a country on that continent.  Middle of the Arabian Desert?  Any known surviving Al Qeuda camps? China?  Nah if china got to drop them fully clothed and laden with all sorts of goodies, falsified documents, electronic spy gear[bugs and mini cams] etc. Only way to do china frankly.   Such a plethora of choices....mmmm.

Everyone talks about gun control being a good thing. Hmmm don't think so.

Lets talk about Venezuela...AGAIN.  Gun Control Paradise.  Highly restrictive gun laws. only allowed one gun per person or household...forget which at the moment.  That gun is registered with the government. Oh and it can be taken/confiscated with no rhyme or reason,  with no warning what so ever. At any time.

Under beloved leader Hugo Chavez [long may his rotting fucking corpse feed the beetles and worms] they closed the very last gun store in Venezuela in late 2011.

Population...ie demographic.  Venezuela is a COUNTRY with a population density on par with a US STATE. One state in particular..MINE.  Their population depending on which website you track with is between 27-28 million right now.    Their murder rate is between 18-21000 a year EVERY year for years and years...more than a decade.  This year according to a spanish language article I ran across, and an NGO that tracks violence in Venezuela...they will have a BANNER RECORD year for murders come the close of 2013.  According to that NGO if the murder rate stays stable they will finish out THIS year with 24,763 murders.  That is fully just a gnats ass shy of a full ONE PERCENT of their population.That is anywhere between 3-6 THOUSAND more murders than the last decade or better's stats.   Now by comparison. The Great State of Texas in which I live, whom according to the gun grabbing, hanky stomping pussies that want your guns; our states gun laws are pretty lax. What is our murder rate? Meh we average between 1050-1150 give or take a few dozen either way.   That means boys and girls that our "gun law lax" STATE has 20  times LESS murders than the gun control paradise of Venezuela, this year.  Hell! Venezuela's murder rate this year is going to be around half and a again, or 10000 or more than the murder stats for the ENTIRE United States! This in a country with 13 times LESS the population of the US!  Wrap your empty skulls around THAT statistic and CHOKE on it you gun grabbing fucktards.   By comparison the murder rate for the US, in terms of population murdered hasn't changed much in the last 60yrs or better.  Our percentage of dead is almost invariably between .004-.009%.  For those of you who don't remember your basic math, slept through the class or you young folk that probably didn't get this basic part of math learning in the last decade or so...what that is is 4-9 THOUSANDTHS of ONE PERCENT.  That's practically infitesimal!    Oh and before anyone brings up England...Guess what the numbers for England are skewed. Because in England unless it's investigated as, tried as and convicted as a murder...it doesn't go in the books as a murder.  Put it another similar way for you. Unless you get an actual CONVICTION then it doesn't go in the official government stats as a murder.  Hell I read an official government document from their Dept of Justice once  that states in the preface that the numbers are off on everything because, especially for most petty crimes...most victims don't even bother to report crimes! Why? because the people tend to feel, rightly, that their  justice system is as useless tits on a boar hog.

And as I've also pointed out before.
Brazil? Whom the Olympics Committee was STUPID enough to give the forthcoming summer olympics to?   Their average murder rate, before that was between 45-50000 a year. And THAT in a country with half the population of the US. That's taken a drop for two reasons. Brazil and their law enforcement declared open season on gangs and criminals and started killing them in job lots. I'd also put good money on the idea that the Brazilian gov't made some back room deals with some of the bigger crime syndicates.

Africa?  Don't even get me fucking started. However for your edification outside of tribal driven genocide and warfare...Africa averages 150000 per year. Add in the numbers from genocide and warfare and the numbers will really make you puke. It's why I've always maintained that the continent is nothing but a black hole for blood, money, and tears.

That is all.

Why do people REFUSE to understand?

I just. Don't. Get. It.    Every day government on all levels is encroaching further and further into our lives.  Story  in Houston today..
people think this is a good thing?

I just don't get it. Various writers have been writing tales of warning about too much government encroachment, or the pitfalls of falling under a totalitarian/communist/socialist government.  some of these stories were even required reading in school. 1984 by George Orwell

Animal Farm by George Orwell. 

Farenheit 451. Ray Bradbury...

These and others. Even today we have warnings in writing  of the future under the "benevolent" rule of these dystopian utopias.  Now I don't like most of these stories.  Many of them are just too much angsty teenage crap in them  with the dystopic fucked up world as  nothing but a backdrop instead of the real story..but.. 
Hunger Games in which your kids are taken and put into a 'last man standing, to the death' gladiatorial games that is broadcast all over the place for the amusement of those in power and the brain washed and CONTROLLED masses. 

Divergent in which you have to at a certain time decide what BOX you want to fit in, or will fit in via some test. If you don't fit any of those boxes? You're hosed. 

There are other stories those are just two you'll recognize though due to them being made into movies. Hell! One of my favorite movies is about a dystopian liberal/progressive/democrat utopia.  Demolition Man. Ring a bell?  A world in which every facet of your life is controlled by a central authority. Everyone is brainwashed. Well most everyone except those who live, quite literally, underground..  Salt, caffeine, cigarettes, fat? Hell..MEAT?!  Unhealthy therefore illegal. Hell there's only ONE restaurant and that's Taco Bell.  Although not the Taco Hell many of us know and love, or know and hate as the case may be.  Sex? Forget it, sex leads to disease and chaos; and as noted in the movie...for a cigarette, a beer or a desire to raid the fridge.  Can't have that.  So you have to go to a licensed doctor who'll determine whether you're compatible, extract your semen[or in the case of the ladies the eggs] genetically purify them, then combine them in a lab..  I honestly don't remember at the moment whether the ladies were artificially  inseminated at that point or whether the zygote was put in a test tube to be popped out of an incubator 9 months later. Either way...beam me  up scotty.

Look,  when the hell are the sheep among you going to wake up and realize that instead of putting sheep dogs into the various government positions; you've by and large  put the WOLVES in power over you? You keep reelecting the same assholes. Over and over again. Note there are some sheepdogs in the power structure but the wolves are winning.  Taking more control over your lives with nary a "baa aaa aaaaa" of discontent out of most of you.  Me? I'm not exactly a sheep dog, not sheep either. I'm barking and growling in the hopes of getting your attention and making you think, come out of your complacency.  Frankly with all the ignorant, unschooled, flat out ILLITERATE comments I witness on posts on face book...I sometimes wonder why I bother.  Because those of you who support this shit are willful participants in your own enslavement and slaughter. Why? Why? WHY Goddammit?!!!

Do you people crave the slave chains?!  Is it fear?   Okay...fear, I can understand that.  Fear can be crippling. It can also be a powerful motivator in making yourself smarter, faster and more dangerous than those that would make slaves out of you,  or sheep fit only for slaughter.  Is it an unwillingness to take responsibility for your own lives and decisions?   Hmmm that one right there I think is many of you among the sheep.

Bah! I'm done ranting for the moment about this. I've said most of this shit repeatedly over the years.

Duck Dynasty brouhaha

 You know..I keep getting into arguments with addlepated assholes over this so figured I'd put it down here. Besides I'm long overdue for a new post.
[*shrug* sorry lads and lasses] 
Note...there WILL be foul languange. So if your an easily offended idiot...don't bother reading any further. OTOH feel free...maybe the outrage you feel will spike your blood pressure and cause your head to explode and splatter skull fragments everywhere.

Okay seriously? All you morons getting driven into a foaming at the mouth frenzy by this manufactured faux outrage...need to go back to school and learn reading comprehension. Right now I'd give most of you a big fucking F for failure.  Hell! I doubt most of you bothered to read the damn article that has your titties in a twist.

The question Phil was ASKED, mind you ASKED; meaning he didn't just all the sudden go off on a rambling rampage; the question ol Phil was asked was "What in your mind is sinful?"  Phil answered honestly

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

 He didn't say Homosexuality leads to bestiality, as some of the progressive propaganda spin doctors are saying.  He's saying that he believes all those ARE sins. Guess what? They are, they are in the bible as such,  you overly indulgent self absorbed bloviating bitches.  Whether YOU believe in the bible is irrelevant , you witless twats.  Phil however DOES believe the 'good book' and therefore those are all sins.  Homosexuality for instance...

From Leviticus in the King James edition of the bible...which is what a great many people read
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."

To wit...

21'You shall not give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the LORD. 22'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. 23'Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion.…

These are all perversions and abominations in the eyes of God. Therefore they are sins and particularly heinous ones.   These sins, these excesses and a litany of others are WHY God destroyed the cities of Soddom and Gomorah.  

"“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”

Phil would most likely be the first person to jump into the middle of a fracas where a person or persons are beating upon someone just for being gay. First to start throwing punches and kick to get those useless fuckers off the poor soul, help that gay person up off the ground where they lay beaten and bruised and offer to help clean them up.  Phil's opinion is not homophobic. He like god doesn't hate the sinner. He loves the sinner irregardless but does NOT love the sin itself.   

Seriously...why is holding a dissenting opinion about someone else lifestyle choice "hateful", but only if you're a conservative or a libertarian. According to the progressives  if you don't agree with the LGBT lifestyle you're homophobic.  If you don't agree with popular black culture [rap, popular TV, gangsta/thug life images] you hate blacks and are racist.  If you don't want people coming over the border and want our border security tighter and people who cross it illegally to be punished and expelled, those people mostly being from mexico but not only from mexico, you hate the latino community and are racist.  By the way people...racism doesn't exist. What you ignorant folks are griping about is called.. tribalism.   Yet those same progressives can say the most heinous things and what they say ISN'T hateful?  Fuck that shit and fuck them!

The ones really spewing the hate tend to be those on the left, be they politicians, media mavens or just the willfully ignorant among the proletariat, ie every day citizens who espouse liberal/progressive beliefs.

I've said my piece. feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.


it seems boys and girls that the Curly Wolf is losing an online friend. One of my favorite bloggers and Texas boy Robbie has said his goodbyes to blogging. He made his last post on Tuesday. The site goes dark two days after christmas because it'll just cost him too much to keep the site live and archived because it's such a massive amount of data. Oh well.

I'm gonna miss him but he's leaving to keep a promise. He promised his wife 10yrs ago when he started it, he'd quit after 10 years. He's got a new born son now and is keeping his promise to his wife.
 He's quitting so he can be the best husband and father he can be. I wish him nothing but the best. God keep his hand over you and yours my friend. Gonna miss ya.

I now leave you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.

ow! ouch! ow! fuck me that hurts! owie!   we regret to inform you that the rant you were going to see is temporarily postponed while we whimper  a bit, because we tried to seperate skin from bone of our finger from first knuckle to nail cuticle while dicing the vegetable mix to go with our chicken fajitas.

ow goddammit!
