Finger Pointing Hot Links

DARVO.

Stuff like this disgusts me.

The longest word in the universe.

Dude got punked by his buddy [via].

THIS democrat candidate for POTUS points out a truth.


Witness: “…during a class discussion, another student asked the girl if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be? In response, the girl allegedly pointed her finger pistol.”

The 12 year old was handcuffed and arrested, charged with a felony for possessing an unloaded index finger.

[Story here, with links. Meanwhile, two students who brought REAL guns to school in the same school district were merely reprimanded.]


From the “I Was Just Holding Them For A Friend” Department:

A 27-year-old Florida woman who’d built more than 24 pipe bombs was arrested Thursday, after her parents stumbled across the incendiary devices and called police.

[Story found here, via here.]

Yeah, we had the big black bomb SWAT disposal truck in our neighborhood once. Officer said it was more than just homemade fire works.


A Humble Request. Thanks to all who contribute – every little bit helps.


From the Archives: 1 year ago. 5 years ago. 10 years ago.

Happy Labor Day!

Monday, 2 September 2019

I’m not an historian, but here’s the gist.


In 1894 there was a recession in the US, and Chicago engineer, industrialist and developer George Pullman had to lay off a large chunk of his workforce (yet he kept about 2/3rds on the payroll).

Some of those laid off were anarchists, socialists and Marxists (the Progressive Movement was on the march) and they organized a strike, not only for the layoffs, but because Pullman wouldn’t reduce the rent for the housing he built and owned. But they did more than protest. They turned to violence and arson.

They burned the buildings and product of their employer (The Pullman Car Company) and others. The damage affected the rail commerce of 27 states, the US Postal Service, and thousands of workers and their families not directly affected by the layoffs. Dozens were killed during the riots.

Note that the arson and violence didn’t affect Pullman nearly as much as it did to the thousands of people who benefited from Pullman’s brilliance, including engineering underground sewage systems for the city of Chicago.

In that year, democrats controlled the House, the Senate AND the Presidency. What did President Cleveland do? He gave the “strikers” an Official Holiday. Then a few days later, he sent in the U.S. Military to kick ass on his own constituents.

Even as Pullman Company and railroad workers were striking, Congress passed legislation in June 1894 making the first Monday in September a federal legal holiday to recognize and celebrate labor. President Grover Cleveland signed the bill into law June 28, 1894, a few days before sending federal troops to Chicago.

“It was a way of being supportive of labor. Labor unions were a constituency of the Democrat Party at the time, and it didn’t look good for Cleveland, who was a Democrat, to be putting down this strike.”
[Richard Schneirov, professor of history, founder of the local chapter of the SDS, 1966, Grinnel University.]

Federal troops were recalled from Chicago on July 20, and the Pullman strike was declared over in early August. Eugene V. Debs, arrested at the height of the violence along with several other ARU leaders, was charged with violating the injunction and served six months in jail. Though the ARU disbanded, Debs would emerge as the leader of the nation’s growing socialist movement, running for president five times on the Socialist Party ticket.

And Karl Marx smiled.

Seven too many clowns at this party.

Thursday, 27 July 2017

On 26 July 2017 the US Senate voted to keep ObamaCare in effect forever.

On Wednesday, 26 July 2017, all 48 Democrats plus 7 Republicans in the Senate voted to destroy the most efficient and successful private healthcare system in the world.

Nice move, idiots.

Every totalitarian government in modern history that nationalized medical care for their constituents did it for reasons having nothing to do with medical care or economics, and everything to do with purging the population that remembers oppression and the obvious causes.

ObamaCare is no different.

Welcome to fascism, folks. They’re gonna shove it down our throats despite majority public opinion to the contrary.

Saturday Matinee – Laws and Statutes: Words Have Meaning.

Saturday, 27 June 2015

John Mayall, 1970. Yeah, John, I agree, up until the point where the SCOTUS decides to rewrite them by fiat, then all bets are off and you’re left to figure out what happened. No more Room To Move.

Terry Gilliam‘s 1985 movie Brazil was prescient. It was originally promoted as farce, but too much of it has come true. It’s a must see IMO, especially in light of the recent judgments handed down by the presumed last bastion of logic, The United State Supreme Court. Once the Supreme Court fails to uphold Constitutional Law (as it did again this past week) the whole system of law collapses.

When the very people we elected to office to combat the corruption and cronyism refuse to do so and participate in the same, we are lost.

When the clear and precise words of The U.S. Constitution may be interpreted with alternative and convoluted meanings that have no foundation in the English Language by appointed (and supposed apolitical) jurists, we have no more recourse.

The majority of U.S. news outlets have become the equivalent of PRAVDA, and Washington D.C. might as well be renamed Obamagrad.

I pity you younger folks who have been indoctrinated into accepting this insidious propaganda and for the precedents that have been set. I hope that, as you grow older and wiser, you read history (real history, with all its warts, moles, lesions and scabs, and not the rewritten kind) and understand what’s coming down on you, your children and grandchildren, and try to repair the damage before those of us who know what’s happening are all gone. If you don’t figure it out soon, it’ll be too late, and I guarantee you’ll regret it.

For those of you who know what’s coming down, find a safe place to hide your reference books and eyeglasses, learn something about farming so you have a cover occupation, and remember that government-sponsored atrocities also happen in modern times.

2014 Midterm Elections – Bunk’s Voting Guide

Tuesday, 4 November 2014

VOTE BUNK

This 2014 Midterm Election is easy. Vote the socialists/fascists out, and if you’re confused or undecided about the Propositions, vote NO by default. If you haven’t done your homework by now, abstain, because you’ll only be betting on the color of the jockey’s tunic and not the horse the jockey rides, and that’s a poor way to voice your opinion.

On the other hand, this is very important stuff. If you don’t vote, you have no reason to complain when you find out that you’ve been screwed by the very same people you trusted, and that’s what voting is all about.

P.S. If you don’t know what fascism is, Google “Mussolini” and decide for yourself whether or not the Obama Administration is practicing the same damnable policies. [Hint: They are.]

P.P.S. Oh, and here’s ShaNaNa’s 1972 classic do-wop The Vote Song from back before they morphed into Weenieville: “Oh, dahlin’, I promise, that if ah am elected, yes, I would do anathang thatchawant, anathang thatcha hot might desire, I would give to you. Yes, yes…”

May Day 2014 – It CAN Happen Here.

Russia May Day

And it IS happening here.

Fight communism, socialism, fascism and other forms of liberalism wherever you find it – if not for yourselves, then do it for your children,  grandchildren and future generations who don’t deserve to live a life of serfdom beholden to government wonks of any political party that aims to control every aspect of your life, including, but not limited to, rescinding the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Always remember that the 2nd Amendment was written to protect the 1st.

Stand up for your principles and speak your mind before it’s too late. The clock is ticking…

How ObamaCare Works

ObamaCare Illustration 110

The warm water is not for you. It’s only for members of Congress, their employees and Union Workers who’ve been exempted by fiat.

Obamacare is the most destructive economic policy I’ve seen implemented in my lifetime, and its reach goes far beyond healthcare.

If you haven’t been paying attention, ObamaCare forces employers to reduce their workforce by government fiat. It prevents employers from hiring full-time workers, and it cripples the insurance industry by mandating coverage without allowing it to compete nationwide in order to balance risks. That’s how the insurance industry works – spreading risk, spreading payments,  balancing it all and adjusting it all the time. It’s a game about odds.

Obamacare changes all of that. This should be a logic issue, not a political one.

However, once a federal program like ObamaCare competes with the private sector and has the power to arbitrarily dictate unreasonable rules, existing medical insurance companies are doomed, neighborhood medical facilities close and Hospitals go bankrupt. Hell, it’s already happening.

Tell me where such a system has ever succeeded. I’ll save you the trouble. It hasn’t succeeded anywhere in the history of the world, without killing off those who needed medical treatment the most – The Poor and The Elderly.

In the United States, The Elderly, the so-called “BabyBoomers.” are the largest population who understand the seductive evils of Socialism/Communism, which makes them a target. They are the same people that Socialists and Communists abhor, i.e.,  People Who Remember. For socialism to prevail, these ancients need to be squelched, and in that respect, ObamaCare is a very useful tool.

I’m not unconvinced that this is part of the intent. The signs are all there, and and it’s been done before.

THIS is the stuff of fascism. Mussolini rejected socialism, and was hanged by his own people for his alternative,

Chicks Dig Guys Who Vote

Tuesday, 6 November 2012

This election is going to determine the fate of Our Nation. Are we going to emulate failed European-style socialism, or are we going to stand up, get bureaucracy out of the way and let the free-market engine of prosperity take us and the rest of the civilized world out of the doldrums that we’ve experienced for the past four years? In sailing terms, the US economy is in irons, and it shouldn’t have to be this way.

The very people who caused this geopolitical financial mess claim that people like me who oppose the economic self-destruction of this Great Country are racist homophobic women-haters, anti-science, knuckle-dragging drooling cavemen who want to destroy the environment and eat your babies in front of your God Denying Eyes. If you believe any of that crap you have no credible reason to vote.

By definition I’m a liberal. I want to change things. I want to elect officials who are fiscally conservative, morally sound, and who will protect our nation and allies from danger, both here and abroad, regardless of party affiliation. The Democrat Party offers none of that today, only lies, smears, cheap shots and half-truths. Throw the bastards out tomorrow.

The Chicks will dig you.
