Defacing and debasing the currency, but in a way that is not expected.

This action to limit short selling of certain stocks by the SEC is a sign of desperation. Historically, such moves have been followed by a violent downward movement by the stock market.

For all you outdoor types, next time you go wandering off in the woods, keep in mind that this is the kind of predator that is out there with you. Here in California, it has been illegal to hunt them for decades, so they have lost their fear and respect for people. There are so many that every year the "teenagers," so to speak, wander down into the agricultural and urban areas seeking new territory, since all the good areas in the mountains are already taken. To them, you are just a slow deer, a tasty turtle burger. Think about that as the fire burns low and you fall asleep in your tent way out in the backcountry.

New, at McDonalds, the bacon cheese turtleburger. Crispy, a little crunchy, just like a turtle burger should be. yum.

World's tallest dog .... George.

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle,the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our president.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is just a Post Turtle."

Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, "What's a 'Post Turtle?'"

The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he sure as heck ain't goin' anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place."

Sunday cozy cabin ... now, back to work!

That blizzard that shut down the east coast? Some people, like the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier, made it to work, snow or no snow. Hoo rah!

Data manipulation by global warming "scientists" seems to be quite necessary everywhere, if what you want to see is evidence that there is warming. This article illustrates a case in point. The money quote:

"Thus, the two oldest and most reliable raw thermometer records in the world are telling us there is not a shred of real world evidence to show any significant global warming. Rather, it is the homogenized or faked data created artificially by climatologists in their laboratories that is consistently being shown as the source of such 'warming.' "

It's a pick em up truck kind of evening. Here's mine, and some music appropriate to the subject.

Next, the Canuck version with Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans.

The mountain of the holy cross. It's real, and in the Rockies.
More environmental madness:

2009 - Global warming causes more foggy days in San Francisco

2010 - Global warming reduces foggy days in San Francisco

But it doesn't matter, either way the enviro-nutballs think it spells doom for the north coast ecosystem.
Who was the biggest mass murderer in the twentieth century?
Pol Pot?

Try Rachel Carson, whose book Silent Spring, based on fraudulent environmental science, resulted in the ban of the pesticide DDT, and the subsequent death by Malaria of upwards of 60 million people.

Will we ever learn?

SNOWPOCALYPSE!! There's a whole lot of global warming going on!

My favorite valentines. Lup dup!

This is actually kind of funny, and from Maureen Dowd no less.
Top scientists now say the world may not be warming after all. No sh!t, Sherlock. Can we start the prosecutions now?
When I was a kid, they told us that styrofoam cups would last in the environment for over 100 years. Even though this wisdom was announced on TV with the ultimate seriousness, anyone who has had the pleasure of crushing one in your hand (while bellowing like some kind of barbarian ... it was the sort of thing pre teens liked to do for entertainment) knew that statement was unmitigated bull. I guess we have finally, after decades, come to see what shysters liberal environmentalists are. I hope we have learned something from this .... and from the acid rain scam, from the alar scam, from the Y2K scare, from everything like this over the years. Whatever the hysteria of the moment that someone is selling has to be backed up with honest, reproducible science that is not paid for by money that would benefit from the scare itself.

Meanwhile, the green police get nasty .... with your money and freedoms .... right here and now.

This series of pictures was posted on a outdoor forum recently but without explanation. From the looks of it, that brand new truck was driven into a farm gate, and darn near (from the lack of blood on the seat ... just speculating) separated someone's junk from their moorings. Just thinking about that made mine nearly suck up and disappear. Yikes!

Nothing like burning a little powder in the desert for a fun time.

This is a picture taken from the space station of a volcanic eruption on the Kuril Islands in the Pacific. Very cool.

Hahahahaha!! This is an excellent idea! If only I had the money.

How did British shipping protect itself from German U boat in WWI and coin the phrase, "razzle dazzle" at the same time? Read and learn another bit of interesting but pretty useless history.
Here's another outstanding Michael Yon article about your friends, neighbors and countrymen doing hero's work in Afghanistan everyday, like it was nothing more than a drive to the supermarket. Simply awesome.
Stoner boy ingests way too much medical marijuana, gets on a plane and picks a fight with a stewardess who is a black belt. Natural result is he gets face planted on the floor with his arms bent behind his back, and now faces up to 20 years in the can and/or a 250,000 fine! Loser.
Definitely my favorite Super Bowl commercial, but how far away were we from this
Being reality before the implosion of the Global Warming scam?

Here is a little bit of spring that has sprung here at the homestead. Taken today by the younger daughter.

You all have so much time on this rainy/snowy Saturday that I thought you should have a required reading assignment. Excellent food for thought.

Indonesian government decides that they will remove a statue of the boy Obama from a public park. Apparently there was a bit of a to do about it because he isn't an Indonesian. Odd, didn't he have an Indonesian last name (Soetero) for years?

Hey Samuel, what did I tell you about government waste. One million dollars spent on signs telling us the government is spending our money.

Hat tip Ace of Spades.
The newest taste sensation in the Persian Gulf is the camel burger. Low fat, and healthy, it appears to be popular with both tourists and locals. Be careful, though, they spit.

Another practical use for absurdly high voltage. The Tesla coil anti car theft device. Shocking, I tell you!

See more good stuff that anyone can do with electricity and an incredible indifference to risk at the link.

A Pakistani diplomat can't buy a job in the Arab world because his name in Arabic means, ... ahem, cough ... "big Johnson!" This is, incredibly, his third rejection. I suspect that the Pakistani diplomatic corp (or is it corpse?!) is engaging in a bit of humor with their erstwhile friends, the Arabs. If its so obvious his name is offensive to them, why keep trying to place him in an Arab country? Besides, Sweden or perhaps Italy would be so much more attractive than a wind whipped, tumbleweed infested desert land for a diplomatic posting.,2933,584807,00.html

Well, Mr. Akbar Zeb, this tune is for you.

Since it appears that every public school is now indoctrinating/teaching kids about Islam, here is great site that allows us to fight back against this hateful religion with their own words and teachings. Bookmark it, because you will probably need it sooner than you think.
The NBC cafeteria decides to celebrate Black history month by putting such "black" food on the menu as collard green, black eyed peas and fried chicken. At least they didn't have watermelon for dessert. There is certainly the argument to be made that too much PC thinking results in blindness to this sort of silly insensitivity. I wonder what the opposite would be for Caucasians? PBJ on white bread?

Observe the face of pure evil. The mouth is smiling, but the eyes are the window into the soul.

This is the face of the huckster that wanted to get rich (or richer) himself by selling the now debunked global warming scam. Don't even think of the money that he was encouraging governments to take from folks like us to enforce the warming fable. Don't even think of the freedoms he and his elitist pals were planning on subverting using their imaginary global warming hysteria.

We should have learned when he claimed to have invented the internet.

How about a list of lies he told back in 2000!

Or perhaps you prefer something a bit fresher from his lying mouth?
