Governor Brown is Funny

with 5 comments

Short and to the point here today. Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown is quoted at The Hill rebuking POTUS Trump for “not fearing the wrath of God” (in regard to climate change)

Now, I happen to live in California and I have followed Brown since his first run at ruining this state so very many years ago.

Brown’s most recent moronic statement seems especially egregious to me because:

a) Brown was semi-educated in a Jesuit University, and

b) Brown is the leader of the Democrat majority in a state which has gone whole hog, and all in (no pun intended sort of) for every sexual depravity known to exist and then some. On top of which Brown is now overseeing the ‘Enlightened’ use of weed as a recreational drug being sold to any and all who care to get high, hang out, kick back, relax and do nothing.

This isn’t all that unexpected, since Trump took another shot at the sacred cow of the Cult of Climate Change, but it sure is funny to hear Brown go down that road and try to appear so sanctimonious.

Anti-Tax Cut / “Never Drill” Crowd

with 5 comments

In Courthouse Park in Sonora, a group got together to ‘protest’ the proposed tax cut and tax reform bill being worked on by My Man Trump.

I saw a photo in an article the Union Democrat newspaper  and had to share a snippet of it. Mostly because it highlights rather unflatteringly, the ignorance of those who oppose everything simply for the sake of opposing everything any Republican does in office.


I would have thought it would be possible for one of the protesters cohorts to have gotten the person some help in spelling the word ‘arctic’, but that seems to have not been the case.

The overwhelming argument appears to be boiled down to: The rich are getting a .4% larger tax cut than the Middle Class!

When a Libtard wants to make a point, there is no time or reason to let a few facts get in the way of demonizing the folks who believe we all pay too much in taxes. And it goes without saying that every tax cut must be accompanied by giving a “Tax Break” to the poorest of the poor who pay ZERO taxes in the first place.

And… I considered leaving alone how the premise of a tax cut for Americans is going to affect Arctic drilling, but I can’t, I just can’t do it. Somewhere a village is missing their idiot.

The highly convoluted machinations and conspiracy theories of the mentally ill are placed in the forefront on a regular basis for all of America to revel in, while it also causes some of us to despair for the Nation and where it is headed with those same folks still breeding.

McCain’s Affair with the Girl (or boy)

with 2 comments

I just saw it on FaceBook:

From – “Primary Challenge Paul Ryan‘s page”

A quote from Joe Walsh:

“Someone just told me that 30 years ago, John McCain had an improper sexual relationship with a 16 year-old girl. I don’t know if it’s true, but based on the allegation alone, I think John McCain should resign,

I agree, it’s not the facts which matter, but the seriousness of the charge.

One person made a comment suggesting it may have been a 16 year-old boy, although not certain if that was a fact either. But the second suggestion of impropriety obviously doubles the imperative for McCain to resign immediately.

Americans in Mexico are Illegal Immigrants?

with 2 comments

How can it be that 26 Illegal Immigrants are being extradited back to the Estados Unido from Mexico (Mehiiico for all the Hispanic Agitators out there)

I seem to remember every Mexican El Presidente for the last gazillion years telling America it was inhumane to send our own unwanted Illegal Immigrants (i.e. Hispanic Economic Invaders) back to Mexico.

The diatribes, accusations, ad hominem attacks from Mexico and the Useful Idiot Democrats all consistently blamed everyone from Ronald Reagan to Bush 43 to Gov. Rick Perry to Rush Limbaugh to… all of the Conservative Americans who opposed unbridled immigration (invasion).

Yet, here it is, the BBC reports the Mexican government (such as it is) is extraditing 26 Americans from Chihuahua State in Northern Mehiiiico back to the United States, along with their cult leader, 56 year-old Orson William Black Jr,  being arrested for some petty crimes of murdering three other Americans in Mexico.

An excerpt from the BBC article:

The prosecutor’s office said the 26 people detained on Mr Black’s properties would be extradited to the US as they had entered the country illegally.

To be fair about the whole mess, it is possible the Mexicans were upset because a bunch of animals were slaughtered in the same area near the “Colony” where the people were arrested, detained and about to be extradited.

The reason for the animal slaughter remains unclear at this time, but was reported to include a lion, and zebras. No mention is made of a PETA protest regarding the treatment of the critters.

Most of this information is irrelevant though, the true crux of the problem is the deportation of these poor, downtrodden, misunderstood, long suffering polygamists trying to eke out a living on a couple of ranches in the midst of a Mennonite Colony established in 1922.

It is a travesty of gigantic proportions that these poor, benighted, hard working folks are being sent back to an ungrateful nation (America) who doesn’t really care about them and certainly doesn’t want them back.

Mexico should consider building a wall to keep the desparate Americans out of their country so this doesn’t continue to occur.

Boycotting the NFL Sponsors

with 6 comments

Since the beginning of the 2016 football Season and the anal orofice Colon Kaepernick’s moronic Snowflake Kneeling behavior, I’e been boycotting the NFL sponsors.

I started a Boycott NFL Sponsors page at Facebook to focus a bit of light on the issue and I urge all Americans to join the fight against the Anti-American NFL Leftist Marxist Buffoons.

Anyone with a news item which fits the narrative of hurting the NFL sponsors or reporting on how hurt they’re getting is welcome to join and post those articles, links etc. etc….


Long live America, the land of the free, becuase it’s the land of the brave.

Has Monsanto Dug Too Deep A Hole??

with 3 comments

An old saying is: If you find yourself in a hole. Stop digging.

I’m going to take a while to lay out my case here, so please be patient, there is a method to my madness.

My question is whether or not Monsanto Company has dug themselves into such a deep hole, they have no recourse but to continue digging until they come out on the other side of the planet?

Specifically, in relation to the glyphosate based herbicidal product Roundup (the name patented by Monsanto for their glyphosate based herbicide)). Various studies have been pandered by all of the parties concerned, those who believe Roundup is the agri-savior of humanity and those who believe Roundup is the root cause of all evil and current spikes in cancer, autism, Colony Collapse Disorder and I suppose acne in pre-pubescent goats.

To be clear here and as a full disclaimer; I do  not have a degree in biochemistry, chemistry in general, mathematics, statistics or even a degree of any kind! Also, I do use Roundup in specific and very limited areas around my property.

What I do have is a long term general knowledge of growing living things based on growing gardens since I was old enough to walk in my parents garden when I was six or seven. That being the case, I now have six decades of experience at growing a garden.

Some studies have indicated Colony Collapse Disorder is being caused by or exacerbated by Roundup. Such as at Natural News and Mother Earth News Those who are proposing the connection are those who advocate a return to fully organic farming methods across the planet. The folks advocating that process never quite get around to explaining how the worlds current population would be fed if we all go back to fully organic farming, but I suppose that is just a detail, not a problem.

The other side of that coin are the various entities with a major stake in promoting herbicide use in general, and specifically Monsanto who makes Roundup.

One thing both sides of the argument have in common is ideology. Extreme ideological differences which of course drive conclusions which may or may not have any basis in real science.

The greater the ideological inclination, the more rabid the response to dissenting opinion becomes. And of course the objectivity which would drive an honest assessment of the evidence is lost, and is never missed by either side.

So, then back to the basic question proposed by this written muse. Has Monsanto dug so deep a hole in supporting Roundup that they simply can’t give in to any findings which would support an opposing view that Roundup is harmful to the surroundings?

That does seem likely, despite Monsanto’s well earned profits, those would vanish in a heartbeat if Roundup was found to cause any or even one of the multitude of maladies so may “Earth Conscious” groups suggest are based on their “scientific studies”

Should Roundup be banned? That seems unlikely based on available science at this point. Is it a good idea to spray the weeds in your garden with Roundup? My personal opinion is: Hell NO!

Will I continue to use Roundup along the street and fence lines to keep the weeds under control and to reduce the fire danger in this rural California foothill area? Of course I will. Will I spray the herbicide where it might have any chance of entering the aquifer? Not until the CEO of Monsanto is willing to drink a Roundup cocktail.

Lets be real, poisons are poisons because they kill things.

Will Monsanto become the 21st Century version of USRC (United States Radium Company) and the Radium Dial company who offered young women good jobs in 1917 to paint clock and watch dials with radium?
