Memorial Day 2021

We remember.

And we miss you terribly, SSG John.

God bless them, EVERY. ONE.

God bless America.

Suspect in Little Old Asian Lady Beating Nabbed

And in possibly the GREATEST SURPRISE EH-VAH? There’s a twist!

The white supremacist arrested for viciously attacking the elderly Asian lady was out on parole for…wait for itKILLING HIS MUMMY.

In April 2002, Elliot was charged with murder for using a kitchen knife to stab his mother, Bridget Johnson in the chest three times in their East 224th Street home in the Bronx, according to previous reports.

The deadly attack took place in front of Elliot’s 5-year-old sister, sources told The Post. It’s unclear what led to the slaying.

Johnson, 42, died a couple of days later. 

Elliot was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years-to-life in prison and was released on parole in November 2019, state corrections records show.

Hey. Only white people are routinely let out on parole for things like that, you know? So whadda you expect?

Oh Sure, Sign Me Up

So Gergle has “updated” their Nest device so it will now not only listen in on everything you say but also track your movements…to “help” you sleep better.

I’ll pass, thanks.

Today turned into your typical casa de major dad day just about that fast. Part disaster, part seat-of-our-pants luck.

The terrific guys who redid all our ductwork 3 weeks ago or so were back today to blow insulation. We’d debated spending yet another grand+ after the $$$gulps ducting, but, considering we’re losing the hurricane hove-up shade trees in the back/that roof is gonna BAKE this summer, it was a painful-but-easy call. AND…a lucky one.

They got up there to find that RATS had ALREADY eaten through one of the BRAND NEW TRUNK LINES, and they were able to fix it before they started doing the insulation. Holy smokes.? Close call. We would have NEVER known.

Anchor was able to get our buddy Nick out here an hour later, with an armload of traps and glue pads? so we can finally nail those beady-eyed bastards.

Corporate policy change: outside ferals are going to see a kibble/canned food reduction, effective immediately. They are OBVIOUSLY NOT earning their keep, paw our signed agreement.? It’s like everyone wants a handout for subpar effort nowadays.

In other household observations, sometimes it pays to just sit back and wait for life to settle down a tad…

Now.

I’m going to make brownies, and ice the CRAP out of them.

Another Whingy Princess

…gets hoisted on her own MEAN GIRL petard.

Thank God for the few on-air personalities like Tucker who call these beeches out for what they are.

MORE of that, please.

Coalition Book Club

The “disjointed disappointment” was a real slog of an effort called “Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution.” I REALLY had high hopes for it – and, quite honestly, it was filled to the BRIM with good stuff – but, LORD, was it hard to get through, not to mention had some pretty off-the-wall mistakes in it. (And DON’T call us “Pensacolans.” We are “Pensacolians,” ffs.) (Grrrrr.)

Anyways, always willing to give it another go. I will let you all know what I think in a bit, because I’m not yet halfway through THIS…

…and it’s a brick.

But WHAT a READ.

Your Tax Dollars at Work

Paying off mismanaged Blue State deficits.

“Ok. Thanks to @SenSchumer NYS budget deficit for this year is…..Zero, nada, niete, zilch (NY terms),” Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro tweeted.

The American Rescue Plan provides state government coffers with $12.6 billion in unrestricted aid, a measure championed by Schumer, the New York senior senator. The measure passed the Senate in a 50-49 vote and is expected to clear the Democratic-led House of Representatives on Tuesday and delivered to President Biden for approval.

Asked if the geyser of pandemic relief eliminates the needs for tax hikes or spending cuts, Roefaro told The Post, “the statement speaks for itself.”

And all this time you thought it was “COVID relief,” you silly, trusting person.

A “GEYSER” of YOUR MONEY for New York. NEW effing YORK.

Anybody REALLY mad yet?

UPDATE: But WAIT!! THERE’S MORE!!

We get to pay for shithole San Francisco, too!!

RIP Allan McDonald

#hero Courage personified.

McDonald directed the booster rocket project at NASA contractor Morton Thiokol. He was responsible for the two massive rockets, filled with explosive fuel, which lifted space shuttles skyward. He was at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the launch of the Challenger “…to approve or disapprove a launch if something came up,” he told me in 2016, 30 years after Challenger exploded.

His job was to sign and submit an official form. Sign the form, he believed, and he’d risk the lives of the seven astronauts set to board the spacecraft the next morning. Refuse to sign, and he’d risk his job, his career, and the good life he’d built for his wife and four children.

“And I made the smartest decision I ever made in my lifetime,” McDonald told me. “I refused to sign it. I just thought we were taking risks we shouldn’t be taking.”

Rib Tickling

Dinner was, anyway.

Put major dad to work last night. Pecan and hickory smoked Memphis style, dry rub babyback ribs, box macaroni, fennel salad.

DAWG

Hoppy Burfday To The Bestest Sister EVUH

THS!!!

Happy Birthday THS!!!

It’s the Weekend

And it sure looks like we’ve got a #FREEDOM revolt breaking out.

Fridays are great for dumping news they don’t want other people to hear.

#FloridaMan proud to lead the #FREEDOM way.

WHO Are the Haters

NOW?

Biden should have to wear his shame like a scarlet letter on his jammies.

WHO says we’re not inclusive?

If anyone was startled by the sound of a man howling something in the middle of the street last night, I apologize.

It was my husband.

The neighbors had moved out, and left their ghastly birdbath – which I had LONG coveted – ON. THE. CURB.???

I saw it sitting there, in pieces, forlornly gracing the side of the road just a smidge after 9 as we were walking Maggie.

“Puta madre! I MUST HAVE IT!?

major dad. ?“Oh, HELL, no.”

On the way back, I snatched up the top piece – a lifelike sculptural representation of two doves, cooing lovingly at each other (Kinda like me and him, no? Okay, no.), and hoofed it home, ALL THE WHILE listening to “WE’RE NOT TAKING THAT.”? I was prepared to go it alone, as always.? “I’ll get the dolly. Never you mind.”

So, well, he gets the car (??), we pop down the street, and hoist the remaining two (what seem like 70 lbs a piece?) sections into the trunk. And, before closing said lid, he throws his arms to the sky and wails.

I MARRIED FRED SANDFORD!!!!?

Like I said, sorry.????

Man. That birdbath is SO ugly, it’s bitchin’. #score

UPDATE: Since certain people in the comments can’t leave well enough alone…

Coo Coo Kachoo

Dinner Last Night

For dinner last night, grilled herb pork chops, box stuffing and avocado salad.

major dad has got the pork chop perfection thing NAILED, lemme tell you.

Dessert was a choice of sour orange pie, or toasted sourdough maple walnut bread, LOTS of buddah.?

ROLL me over, Beethoven!

Honestly – it’s the only way I got off the couch last night. #PuercaGorda

When You Shoot Yourself in the Foot

Democrats have passed a complete abomination, and Leftists are rushing to defend it.

Although the concept and rhetoric is earnest and high flown, they’re not really thinking it through when they do…

It seems to…”circle back,” shall we say…and bite them.

UPDATE: *sigh*

I’m going to call this “A Progressive Tragedy in Three Movements.”

*cue sad music

Kittehs

Pirate kittehs.

How Bad Off Is Joe Biden?

We used to call THIS

…”getting the YANK.”

Confidence inspiring, no?

No.

Oh Somehow I Don’t Think This Is The First Time

Hillary has written quite a lot of fiction before.

But, hey, at this point what does it matter?

And, JUST LIKE THAT?

They’re not cruel, Trump “CAGES” anymore.

CAGES?! Why, no. No, they’re not.”

In fact, it’s pretty magical, if you ask me.

You know. How the #rulez change.

And then we all pretend they didn’t.

Naomi Wolf on Tucker Carlson

Gads. Did I really write that?

I did, indeed.

We couldn’t believe it when he said who the next guest was, and then could NOT believe what came out of her mouth. Wow. She is dead on.

Tucker is one of the two shows we still watch on Fox (the other being Mark Levin on Sunday), and THIS is precisely why. You won’t hear these people, or these words, anywhere else.

And they need to be heard.

Truer Words

Rush Limbaugh Has Died

What a loss, but I am grateful his suffering is at an end.

I have never once heard even a minute of his radio show, although one of the highlights of our early Swilling was having one of our scoops featured on it (Folks were kind enough to send us the transcripts.). But these past few years – especially during the latter days of the Obama administration, and Hillary Clinton’s run – I came to look forward to his appearances on shows, and read guest columns.

What an intellect. And, oh, how he loved this great country of ours.

And the folks in it. The “you”s, “me”s, and “us”s – all of US regular types.

He told us we weren’t crazy. We WERE seeing what we WERE seeing, and he laid it all out on the table time and again, in clear, concise, take-no-prisoners language that gave voice to the frustration, and resentment felt by a neglected, massive swath of this great land’s hardworking citizens.

He heard, he saw, and he gave such vociferous voice. There was, at last, a true people’s champion speaking. An America first champion.

Rest well, dear sir. God bless you.

ADDENDUM: Here’s the transcript of his speech at the 2009 CPAC. A thing of beauty.

…Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. [Applause] When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don’t see groups. We don’t see victims. We don’t see people we want to exploit. What we see — what we see is potential. We do not look out across the country and see the average American, the person that makes this country work. We do not see that person with contempt. We don’t think that person doesn’t have what it takes. We believe that person can be the best he or she wants to be if certain things are just removed from their path like onerous taxes, regulations and too much government. [Applause]

We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause] We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause] Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you.

We don’t want to tell anybody how to live. That’s up to you. If you want to make the best of yourself, feel free. If you want to ruin your life, we’ll try to stop it, but it’s a waste. We look over the country as it is today, we see so much waste, human potential that’s been destroyed by 50 years of a welfare state. By a failed war on poverty. [Applause]

We love the people of this country. And we want this to be the greatest country it can be, but we do understand, as people created and endowed by our creator, we’re all individuals. We resist the effort to group us. We resist the effort to make us feel that we’re all the same, that we’re no different than anybody else. We’re all different. There are no two things or people in this world who are created in a way that they end up with equal outcomes. That’s up to them. They are created equal, given the chance – -[Applause]

We don’t hate anybody. We don’t — I mean, the racism in this country, if you ask me, I know many people in this audience — let me deal with this head on. You know what the cliche is, a conservative: racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe. Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen of America, if you were paying attention, I know you were, the racism in our culture was exclusively and fully on display in the Democrat primary last year. [Applause]…
