American BadAss

True American Bad Ass - MSG Roy Benavides

Meet a man who is such a bad ass that it takes President Reagan almost 5 minutes to tell the tale... then listen to the man himself tell you all the bits that got left out! MSG Roy Benavidez passed away in 1998, but his bravery, honor, and sheer fortitude will live forever. Long live Tango Mike Mike - his call sign (That Mean Mexican)

Ball Diamond Ball Nails It.

No I don’t have an alternative Constitution, and to entertain one is to miss the point. We have finished losing battles because we have lost the war. We of the slow-footed conservative trailer park of lost hope are just getting traction with the idea that there may be a fight coming, and it’s already over. This is what defeat looks like. We should be so lucky as to see a boot smashing a human face forever and so forth. Instead we are co-opted into doing it to ourselves for them. We mash our faces into the dirt because that’s the system. Can’t help you at window A, please take a ticket for window B and have a seat. By the time WIndow B tells us to try window A, it’s a different crowd, and they think we’re crazy. Sorry, you don’t have standing. Sorry, you have to win elections. Sorry, the media won’t like it. Sorry, you don’t have standing. This is what defeat tastes like. We will not see a return to the rule of law, a resurgence of a people worthy of self-government, nor the restoration of a country so esteemed in the world that its institutions are aped by even the most tyrannical dictatorships in a bid for legitimacy. I would say kiss it goodbye, plant a tender peck on its cool forehead before the box is closed, but it’s too late for that too. There’s nothing left.

The shindig at Scott's

This evening there was an event to serve as the last hurrah for my friend Scott.  His home is sold to new owners, and his wife will live in the condo she/they closed on the day he passed. 

He is a great guy, and still in my prayers.  High school sweethearts, man... I'll do my best to let her know there are "people" who are more than "people"... we are friends.

May G-d bless your family, Scott.  And please look out for the wonderful friends I made tonight.  Karen and Dave, Devin, Jeff, Jeffrey, your brother Jeff, John, Tim, Rock, all and many more.

Thanks for everything.

Robert Tracinski on The Left

You must-read of the day by the excellent writer Robert Tracinski at The Federalist... how the left defines itself not by what it stands for but by what it stands against.

His argument is damning, and should be read by every thinking person.

Here it is:

But we're supposed to shut the fuck up and take it...

Maetenloch nailed it in tonight's ONT at the Moron HQ...


And when the justice system has failed or become merely a procedural sham what then?

It's a common conceit among lawyers that our legal system is the justice system - which is not fully true: It's a justice system and a pretty good one at that but it's not the only justice system. So there's an assumption that if the legal system is manipulated and even blocked, then there's simply no recourse at all for those on the receiving end of this treatment and so they'll just accept it. Which is clearly what the above people and their allies seem to believe. Well out of the inertia of trust in the system this is true up to a point - but only up to a point.

But when that trust that justice will actually be delivered is finally broken, stoic acceptance of the jiggered results of a broken system can no longer be counted upon either. Instead you will see a reversion to the older, rougher justice delivery firmware that's embedded in our DNA and it will be ugly. But not necessarily unjust.

Given that people have had their lives destroyed for merely making a bad joke on social media, wearing the wrong shirt, answering a hypothetical question about catering incorrectly, and using the wrong ordering of words in a phrase, not to mention threatened with jail for the act of committing politics, I see no reason that Chisholm, Kluka, Lerner, and Machen who have done far worse should be able to walk the streets and go through life comfortably and carefree.

Don't blame me for this - I wasn't the one who deliberately subverted and broke the system of justice that we had."

Please read this whole thing.

And the World Spins Madly On.

Today a new beer was created... "The Ol' Shiteree Barley Wine (Dark)".

My recently-passed friend Scott used the term "Shitteree" often, and I don't know whether I've heard it before... let alone with such frequency.  He liked that word, and I'll use it in his honor.

The "barley wine" was suggested by H-Dogg when he heard the theoretical alcohol concentration of the finished beer will be over 10% ABV.  Stiff stuff. 

We are all going to die, but I hope we all live longer and suffer much less pain than my friend Scott.  One bout with cancer fucks up the whole shitteree.

Scott, may the Creator welcome you.  Cheers, Prosit, and I'm glad you suffer no longer.  Thanks for everything you taught me, and thanks to our Creator for letting me meet you.  I hope we'll meet again.

Rotten news.

My buddy Scott yielded to the cancer.

His wife called this evening to inform of his passing last night. 

He is pain free, and has met our Creator.

Godspeed, Scott.  Rest in peace.

This is all bull fucking shit!!!!!!

This is all bull fucking shit!!!!!!
The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians
Myths, Hypotheses and Facts
The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians
There are some modern myths or more exactly, lies that we can hear everyday through the mass-media as if they were true, of course, hiding the actual truth. For example, whenever the Temple Mount or Jerusalem are mentioned, it is usually remarked that is "the third holy place for muslims”, but why it is never said that is the FIRST Holy Place for Jews? It sounds like an utterly biased information!
Origin and identity of the so-called Palestinians
Palestinians are the newest of all the peoples on the face of the Earth, and began to exist in a single day by a kind of supernatural phenomenon that is unique in the whole history of mankind.

Saved here for posterity.

  1. Rufus T. Firefly Says:

    There are folks much smarter than me here, but I don’t understand why you all don’t see the Congress is as culpable as the President. There are many reasons, but the reasons don’t matter.

    Those with power will almost always try to amass more power and draw it to their sphere of influence. This is why the Founders gave almost all the power to the individual States. Our nation is supposed to be in a continual struggle between the Federal Government trying to centralize power and the States trying to retain it. Because of the XVIIth Amendment and the pool of money created by the XVIth Amendment (and manipulations necessary to win the Civil War and finally remove the scourge of slavery from the Country) (and other reasons) political factions within many of the States have been cooperating with the Federal Government for over a century.

    If a majority of States don’t care enough to get the power they have lost back, why do you assume a majority of Federal Congresspeople will voluntarily choose to relinquish it? It’s completely against human nature. That makes no sense.

    People, if you want to fight a political battle fight it locally. It has to be local. The Federal government is the leviathan. The Legislative branch is even more culpable than the Executive.

    Again, I mean no offense, you are very smart people, but your ideas seem to always revolve around negotiating with the serpent’s tail in hopes it will strangle the serpent’s head.

Time for Islam to Embrace Reality.

Unease about modernity isn’t necessarily problematic in itself; after all, Christianity and Judaism are also pre-modern faiths, which have many critical things to say about contemporary ideals and mores.

Bad news.

Two weeks ago driving home I saw a friend's name calling, and picked it up a couple blocks from home.  My good buddy Scott said "hello" on the other end and we exchange formalities.

I ask what's up... "you need to change our business arrangement" he says.  I ask why... "I have cancer and it's terminal."

I won't speak to the discussion from that point since it's personal and painful and nuanced and too soon. 

It's all over, he's been battling for a year, and it's in his brain as well.  Dear God/ fuck.

Went to visit at his place last weekend and I'm not pulling punches at the door telling him he looks like shit.  He does.  Never ever said a word untrue to him and this is true.

Inside we break out three six packs that I brought... one cold and ready, one warm but ready, and one bottled that afternoon.  I told him he needed to put a note on the "not ready" to save for Christmas. 

He is still Scott, but he can't remember anything.

He's wasted to nothing and he is resigned. 

I guess there's a lesson here... maybe it is better to die unexpectedly.  I don't know.  His Mary is a trouper near as I can tell.  I'm sure she's had the very worst of it.  They've lived in their house for 28 years, and were 25 when they bought it.  He's been sick for a year.  It hurts the hell out of me to see my friend like this, but I can't imagine the way it hurts her.

Pray for a miracle.
