Back Home

Head Still Spinning...

Oh...I don't know...where do I start after reading the newspaper and watching the news this evening?

Tonight I find that we live in a world where a Zillon ton steel ship with an all American crew (something I thought didn't exist any more except in the US Navy) is conquered by a bunch of skinny Negros in a wooden boat powered by an outboard motor.

It apparently happens all the time for years now.

It's repeatedly been on the news so no one should be surprised of their intent or past history in these waters, so my jaw drops when I hear of the reason for their success.

You know...don't you?

Polite society, lawyers, insurance companies, and the @#$% idiot Steamship Company owners WON'T ALLOW ANYONE TO HAVE A GUN ON A MERCHANT SHIP because somebody might shoot somebody.

After all...guns are E V I L.

All I know is that one 50 calibre machine gun would have prevented this current situation...but instead we have a brave man--the Ship's Captain--still facing his own mortality in the hands of savages.

Heck, one 45 revolver and a case of bullets would have dispatched these idiots to heaven or hell or off to meet Allah and the crowd of virgins...but noooooooOOOOOOOO.

Can't have a gun on board the boat, so the crew sits around and watches these black bastards THROW A GRAPPLING HOOK OVER THE SIDE OF THE BOAT AND THEN CLIMB ABOARD?

Give me a break...

If I was on board and these SOB's pulled up to the side of the boat the first thing I'd do was start dropping the contents of my tool box over the side onto their flea and lice infested heads.

A Craftsman crescent wrench and a dozen screwdrivers moving at 100 MPH would at least slow down their progress I think.

Next would come the empty toolbox, then I'd move on to larger things like fire extinguishers and propane tanks and anything else not bolted or welded down to the deck.

And what about taking something as simple as a KNIFE and cutting the rope before the shitheads climb to the top and drop over the railing?

I guess that like the TSA rules for boarding an airliner today that anything larger than a toenail clipper is also against the rules. The crew of these vessels are probably having to resort to cutting crappy, tough, company pork and beef steaks with butter knives or just gnawing their way through the slabs of meat with their teeth.

Is this where we all really are today?

A group of "law abiding citizens" are prevented from defending themselves by politically influenced Corporate rules or the "government" and placed in a position where animals with no regard for civility or the "the law" inflict injury or death upon them in pursuit of wealth and pirated private property?

Yeah...that's the ticket...all you sniveling, booger eating, tree hugging kumbaya singing liberal and progressive MEN just keep on voting these gun hating idiots into political office for another 20 years... and keep cutting the Military funding and keep relying on dialing 911 to protect your miserable asses and that of your wives and mothers and children.

Since you and your Politicians will have taken my guns by then, I'm just likely to turn my head, ignore your screams for help, and wait to read the headlines of how your beloved "Government Officials" arrested the "suspects" after they found your families' dead, dismembered raped bodies in your basement.

I have to go now because my head hurts...

Words From The Wise

I Wish I Wrote That...

"The poisonous harvest of our most toxic decade, the Sixties, is a bizarre notion that the young are smart. In truth, the young are generally fools. I certainly was. But back in the Sixties, the left managed to seize on one or two things the old had been wrong about–things like racism and reckless pollution–and convince the young that the old were wrong about EVERYTHING. Since then we have been producing insolent, unprincipled, overconfident, weak children who think their tiny brains hold the keys to a bright and happy future where everyone eats tofu and and smokes free dope and has sex with no consequences."

Quote O' The Day

If I Had Just Thought Of These Things First...

"Everywhere is walking distance if you just have the time."

"It doesn't make a difference what room temperature's always room temperature."

"It's a small world but I wouldn't want to paint it..."

"There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot."

"You can't have everything...Where would you put it?"

Pizza & Meetings...

After a last minute meeting cancellation and a day spent sitting around the Prince Engineering Condo yesterday, I cooked not one...but TWO of my soon to be famous pizzas for dinner last night for an appreciative audience.

Today's schedule is a little more aggressive with morning and afternoon convocations with various persons bearing the titles of PE and MBA and CPA and me along as "chief cook and bottle washer" just plain old working injuneer.

Hopefully some cash will flow as a result of my independent economic "stimulus" efforts.

Stay tuned for film at eleven....

The Turbo Pup's On The Road (Yet) Again

Through The Appalachians...

What a glorious day we had Sunday.

Five plus hours spent making what could be a three hour drive, with a late lunch/dinner at Sidestreet Pizza in Tryon, NC on the way, and the trees blooming and sprouting and the light traffic of a spring Sunday afternoon on I-40 and get the picture.

This week the light Blogging will be caused by me being busy in South Carolina trying to make a living.

You'll have to excuse me if I appear to be "Profit motivated"
