My "Names" List...Didn't Write it...Just Found it!

Hey biden, I don't agree with you. So what? Now you are going to do what? Find another name to call me? 

I wear your insults with pride:
I'm a DENIER for questioning faulty, cherry picked and falsified climate data?
I'm a RACIST because I criticized anyone on the left?
I'm a TERRORIST because I want to practice my Second Amendment rights?
I'm a TEABAGGER for supporting the Constitution?
I'm a NATIONALIST because I love my country?
I'm a NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT because I speak my mind?
I'm an ISLAMAPHOBE because I think sharia law is sedition and should not replace our Constitution.
I'm a HOMOPHOBE because I won't celebrate the gay life style.
I'm a TRAITOR because I want to expose the corruption occurring in my government?
I'm a CONSPIRACY THEORIST because I post facts?
I am UN-AMERICAN for supporting our President Trump?
I am a WARMONGER because I support our troops?
I'm a GREEDY CAPITALIST because I believe I am entitled to keep what I earned?
I'm a SEXIST and MISOGYNIST because I hold doors open for women?
I'm a WHITE SUPREMACIST because I think every life matters?
I'm a DEPLORABLE because I won't back a blatantly corrupt authoritarian.
I'm UNESSENTIAL because my ways of making a living are shut down by an illegal govt. decree.
I'm SELFISH because I want businesses back open.
I am not going to change just because Biden is Butthurt and doesn't agree with me or I with him.

Beer and The Wheel

 From my friend, Pete, who sends me great stuff...

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.        

Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture.         

Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.             
The wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:          
1. Liberals.          
2. Conservatives.     
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.          
Other men who were less skilled at hunting (called'vegetarians’  which was an early human word meaning 'bad hunter’) learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the liberal movement.        
Some of these liberal men “evolved” into women. Others became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided.          

Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass, for obvious reasons.


 Modern Liberals like special-flavored beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine spritzers or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: many liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men.          

Most college professors, social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, film makers in Hollywood, group therapists and community organizers are liberals. Liberals meddled in our national pastime and invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.          
Conservatives drink real beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are members of the military, big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, airline pilots, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living.          
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.          
Here ends today's lesson in world history. It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post.          
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be shared immediately to other true believers and to just piss-off more liberals.

And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self, I'm going to grab a few beers and grill some steaks! Right after I forward this message.

“And what sort of lives do these people, who pose as being moral, lead themselves?

My dear fellow, you forget that we are in the native land of the hypocrite.”

Beverly Hills Blues?
Goodness gracious!
Bona-fide VCAs are invading Beverly Hills and attacking the very smug, leftist progressives who claim to love them (criminals) so much!
Even hard-core, Communist, former SDS, aging leftist radicals from the 1960s, fearful of being attacked in 2021 by the very criminals they enfranchised, supported, protected, and apologized for, are up in arms, literally, about their current plight!
They’re admitting that they’re buying guns and ammunition, the very guns they want to ban from the rest of us!
These brand-new gun-owners are conceited liberals who swore up an down they would “never own a gun!”
Well it would appear, “never” just ended!
Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y?
It seems self-righteous, pseudo-sanctimonious, hypocritical liberals aren’t “anti-gun.” They’re “anti-your-gun”
Apparently, guns they own, and that protect them, are suddenly just fine, because their lives and property are
By contrast, guns owned by us, “the unwashed,” who work for a living, pay taxes, and live in plain-vanilla American neighborhoods, are “bad” and need to be forcibly ripped from our homes and our hands, because we are unimportant, expendable, and our hard-earned private property deserves to be destroyed/stolen
The foregoing has always been at the heart of leftist/Communist dogma!
So, Beverly Hills liberals are now upset, because their precious criminals have turned on them!
I’m fresh out of sympathy!

The Baldwin Shooting

 From a Fellow Firearms Enthusiast:

The issue is not whether Mr. Baldwin is a good person or a bad one. Neither that nor his politics matter. The relevant fact is that he obviously violated three basic safe gun handling rules: 

1. Every gun must be treated as loaded. That has to be the default assumption until the person handling it personally takes every one of the multiple steps necessary to ascertain and confirm that it is not. Being told by any other person or persons that a firearm is unloaded won't cut it or excuse a violation of this rule. 

2. No gun ever should be pointed at any portion of one's own body or at any other person who does not pose an immediate dangerous threat. 

3. No gun holder ever should place a finger inside the trigger guard unless and until the gun is aimed at a target at which the gun holder has decided to 

Anyone who picks up a gun and fails to comply with each of these fundamental common sense rules must be held accountable -- legally, financially, and morally -- for the consequences of any such failure . . . and this is particularly true when all three rules are violated with fatal consequences.

The Corvette

 The Corvette   

A man named Tom Nicholson posted on his Facebook account the sports car that he had just bought and how a man approached and told him that the money used to buy this car could've fed thousands of less fortunate people. His response to this man  made him famous on the internet:

A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost?"
I replied I'm not sure.

It fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it.

It fed the people who make the tires.

It fed the people who made the components that went into it.
It fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires.
It fed people in at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. 
It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer
and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.
BUT,... I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.
That is the difference between capitalism and the welfare mentality.
When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.
When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self-worth.
Capitalism is freely giving your money  in exchange for something of value. 
Socialism is having the government take your money against your will and give it to someone else for doing nothing.

Email From A Friend

During a DNC dinner, Mrs. Biden leaned over to chat with Chuck Schumer. "I bought Joe a parrot for his birthday. That bird is so smart, Joe has already taught him to say over two hundred words!"

"Very impressive," said Chuck, "but, you do realize he just speaks the words. He doesn't really understand what they mean."

"Oh, I know", replied Mrs. Biden, "but neither does the parrot."

Horse Sense


The "Bottleneck" is California


From an article by Andrea Widberg...

The conventional wisdom from the left is that the VIRUS is the reason for stalled container ships off the California coast.  (NOT THE COMPLETE STORY)

Problem # 1

California's new laws are NOT mentioned.  Trucks with engines built before 2011 are not allowed in the container off load area and drivers must be 21 years of age now, no longer just 18.

To solve the truck problem, California mandated that older trucks be replaced with electric trucks (which don't exist yet).

Half of the nation's truckers are now prohibited from picking up containers in California.  You don't hear about that of course.

In an effort to solve the problem, California compliant trucks have been taking shipments to the state border, where the load is transferred to non-compliant trucks.  This has just built another bottleneck.

Problem # 2

California's new law AB-5 killed the gig economy.  Traditionally ports are served by owner operators. AB-5 BANNED OWNER/OPERATORS WHO ARE NOT UNION.  So, there just aren't nearly enough trucks to handle the job.  Biden's grandstanding about operating the ports 24/7 won't make a difference.

The unions win and the Democrats win, the media punts but the average AMERICAN CITIZEN loses.    Does any of this surprise you ?

Drug-dealer’s axiom

“Don’t spend too much time reading your own press-releases”

Political equivalent
Liberal hypocrites!
Actor, Alec Baldwin, the same Hollywood leftist/elitist who insists, ad nauseam, that we mere peons, we the “unworthy and unwashed,” are too stupid to own guns, inadvertently killed a film-set co-worker with a “prop-pistol” yesterday. Another co-worker was injured, apparently in the same incident.
A subsequent TV interview revealed that whoever was “safety coordinator” on this film-set was utterly unaware of the normal working of firearms, as well as correct gun-handling. No one was able to even begin to explain what went wrong!
The rabidly anti-gun among us (which includes nearly all of Hollywood’s self-righteous, leftist, “elite”) should never be allowed anywhere near others when handling firearms, even as supposed “props.”
They will invariably get it wrong (as we see), because they are willfully, arrogantly ignorant and unaccustomed to anything that resembles correct handling of deadly weapons.
Once again, these are the same people who insist that we “ordinary American citizens” are too stupid to own guns!

Universalist Reincarnation Theology

April 20, 2021

I can’t believe in Christianity if they claim all these are true:

1) God is All-Good
2) God is All-Knowing
3) Eternal Torturous Hell exists

Problem:  Only two of those can be true at the same time:

a) God can be ALL-GOOD and HELL can exist….but then he can’t be ALL-KNOWING…and know in advance of creating some people that they will choose to be bad, and suffer eternal punishment in hell.

b) God can be ALL-KNOWING and HELL can exist…but then he can’t be ALL-GOOD if he chooses to create people he knows will end up in eternal torture in hell.

c) God can be ALL-KNOWING and ALL-GOOD…but then the brutal, eternal, punishing, torturous, burning HELL does not exist.

Now, today I heard a very interesting explanation from a Christian Apologist that seemed to answer my objections. He claimed that when “bad” people die…who have not accepted God and goodness, He does not force them into His presence, and honors their wishes to be separate from Him. He therefore assigns them to a place outside of heaven.

The Apologist suggested it was not a great place…as God wasn’t there…but also indicated that it was not a “lake of fire, a burning, torturous, punishing nightmare from which ‘lost’ souls cannot awaken”. He further…without actually verbalizing it…left the assumption that this choice would be made once, and the location the soul went to would be permanent.

But I suddenly had an inspiration about that…one that makes all of the parts of this equation make PERFECT SENSE!

I agree that when the a person dies, and they go before God and he must choose the soul’s destination…if they are saintly and deserving, they will be admitted to Heaven to enjoy all the benefit and joys thereof.

But, if they are not deserving of paradise…or have, in fact, rejected God whether by literal choice or mindless action…God then does send that soul to a place “outside of heaven”, as suggested.

But… that place is EARTH!  The place that unprepared souls return to is a place where he has another chance to get it right.


I think the Apologist was exactly right….about the alternative destination…

I think the Apologist was wrong…about the finality of the journey.

God made us while being All-Good and All-Knowing. He made us for a purpose….not to see us suffer eternal punishment in a burning HELL…but to join Him (and each other) in Paradise, to have a GREAT TIME!

God wants ALL His children to join him in Heaven…but he does demand that we DESERVE it. And He will keep returning us to the school of hard-knocks until we learn the lessons, awaken our mind with understanding, fill our hearts with love, and thus EARN our way into Paradise.

This answers all the objections I have to the original, more “fundamentalist” version of God’s character and demands. And yet, it actually explains those statements of faith:

God loves us.
God is Good.
God is All-Knowing
God makes demands on us to EARN Paradise.
When we fail, He does not condemn us, but He does not give us a pass either.
He gives us as many chances as we need to EARN Paradise.

This gives us gratitude to Him for his patience and love. But it also gives us self-respect, and self-acceptance.

And He (and everyone in Heaven) celebrates every soul when they finally graduate!

July 18, 2021

While the Christian Apologists I’m listening to (Frank Turek, etc) say that if Universalism is true then Jesus died for nothing…and that Reincarnation isn’t true because Salvation is not about “works”, but rather about “faith in Jesus” that gets us into heaven, so we don’t need a bunch of lives to build up enough “good works” to graduate to Paradise.

Both of those arguments (and most of their others) are wrong in my opinion.

First, can I just say they make Christianity REALLY COMPLICATED by all the fancy footwork they need to produce and justify their preferred theology. Like explaining how, if people just live once, do babies who die go to hell because they didn’t “have faith” in Jesus? Turek has the bad-taste to suggest that maybe since God would know that a given baby wouldn’t have “believed” in Jesus even if he had been given the chance to live a full life, so if he goes to HELL that’s God’s justice.  WHAT THE FUCK???!!!

Turek is not saying that’s what happens. Actually he seems to want to believe that all babies who die go to heaven. But can you imagine the required twisted, convoluted thinking it requires to try to live up to the demands of the inflexible “theology” of the what seems to be “protestant” Christianity?

Further, let’s talk about the argument they make that salvation does not depend on and WORKS by man….but only on JESUS’ SACRIFICE as atonement for our sins.

This is a confusing idea, because it seems to suggest that no matter what we do, the sacrificial death of GOD for our sins has, by definition, atoned for any sin we could possibly commit. Yay!

But…wait. While they say that works are not necessary, they DO say that in order to benefit from Jesus’ Atoning Sacrifice, you MUST believe in Him, you MUST Trust Him, you MUST Love Him, your MUST Adore Him…as well as God the Father and God the Holy Ghost.

All of that “MUST DO” sounds like an awful lot of “works” to me. It would be a lot easier to spend my money and time ministering to the poor, homeless, hungry and hopeless than trying to force BELIEF in something that happened over 2000 years ago, to force TRUST in someone I have no experience of,  to LOVE a guy who I have no relationship with, and ADORE Him and his fellows as a GOD I must prostrate myself before, without have any experience of His reality or His greatness or His divinity…

That’s a pretty BIG BUNCH OF WORKS right there—“necessary for salvation”, according to Frank, et al.

So many complications, so many complicated ways of “translating” what the Bible means, what God means, what Jesus means, what Church Fathers mean…

Why don’t we just make it simple?

If Jesus died for my sins, so that what I have to do is know and trust in Him and accept his sacrifice of love in order for me to go to paradise…

…how about He make it possible for me—and everybody else…to do that….including those who lived (their ONLY ONE LIFE) before Jesus showed up, and who lived/live in other countries, in different religious cultures, and those who die without ever having the chance to know/love/accept/trust Jesus, and those whose life experience or personality make it difficult or impossible for them to accept any such idea?

How about we make a straightforward path to PARADISE for everyone….no matter how long it takes. After all, God doesn’t have time limits, right? You know, “ETERNITY”…

So…According to Christianity as taught today: You LIVE, you DIE, you are JUDGED, and then you go to Heaven or Hell…

Let’s be clear, this mean that after one measly little life of just a few years, you are consigned to either Paradise or Torture FOREVER, based on what you did or didn’t do.

But no! Stop! Wait!

That is not what a good God would do!

But it IS something that a man-made Church would say to get people scared to death, easy to manipulate, control…to get them to behave….to get them to be dependent on the Church…and its Leaders—giving them allegiance, obedience and support!

(Does “Covid” ring a bell?)

NO! Here’s what a good, compassionate, but JUST God would do:  You LIVE, you DIE, you are JUDGED. If you fulfilled the requirements, you go to HEAVEN. If you didn’t…you go to HELL: translation…another life on Earth. You know the expression, “hell on earth”…???

And if the requirement is that you accept and appreciate the sacrifice of Jesus, trust in His atonement, love him and adore Him…you have another chance to do so…

And you keep repeating the cycle until you finally “get it”…

God wants ALL of his Children with Him in Paradise. But he has His requirements. And until you fulfill them, you’re on the Merry-Go-Round of incarnations until you meet them.

And that’s just such a simple explanation to it all. Occam’s razor, Christians!

1) God send His Son to redeem His sinning children.

2) All He requires is that those sinning children acknowledge the redemption, accept it, be grateful for it, and thereafter behave in a way that is evidence of their “redemption”, by loving God, each other and God’s beautiful created world.

3) Each person has the personal responsibility to fulfill #2. And he will be repeatedly reincarnated until he does! (That’s Hell enough for anyone!)

4) Ultimately ALL people will be personally redeemed and reach Paradise, by their “WORK” of acceptance, love, and trust in God and Jesus…

5) And we will ALL live happily ever after in Paradise!

(That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!)

This is what happens when you disarm the population, and the police!

The folly of the unarmed!
Both the UK and Norway last week saw wanton murders of the unarmed.
In the UK, it was a lone, knife-wielding attacker who murdered a Member of Parliament as the MP was holding an informal meeting with constituents. The MP died at the scene of multiple stab wounds.
The attacker was arrested shortly thereafter.
In Norway, several police officers responded to a report of a man with a bow and arrows shooting arrows in the direction of pedestrians at a supermarket.
When officers arrived (all unarmed, by edict), the suspect started shooting arrows at them!
Being unarmed, all they could do was retreat and take cover. No officers were injured.
However, as officers took cover, the suspect continued shooting arrows and subsequently invaded several local apartments and, over the next half-hour, murdered five innocent citizens and wounded several more!
Of course, unarmed police were helpless to prevent any of these murders!
The suspect was eventually arrested.
The suspect was known by police to be “criminally insane,” and was also a “recent convert to Islam”
Comment: It was a bad week for the unarmed. Most weeks are!
In the UK, in Norway, and in most of Western Europe, police officers, even MPs, are considered too stupid to own guns!
Accordingly, “criminally insane” suspects, even ones well-known to police and on “watch-lists,” roam freely and, when they decide to attack, always have plenty of time (sometimes hours) to murder their hapless and unarmed victims before anything substantive is done to subdue them.
Unarmed police, even when on the scene, can do little other than remain at a safe distance as the carnage transpires, unhindered in any meaningful way, as we see!
It happens over and over, and all European politicians do is respond by bolstering their own security!
Over here, double-faced Democrat politicians call for our police (who currently go armed routinely) to be disarmed, defunded, and disbanded, all while quietly increasing their own heavily-armed security staffs.
In such a debased world, the unarmed (by choice, and by decree) will continue to be casually murdered, and politicians whom they voted for will continue to care not a whit!
“To be led by a coward, is to be controlled by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool, is to be led by opportunists who control the fool.
To be led by a thief, is to offer-up your most precious treasures to be stolen.
To be led by a liar, is to ask to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant, is to sell yourself into slavery.”
