Good morning horde

2 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, December 26, 2015. On this day in 1846 while trapped in snow in the Sierra Nevadas and without food, some members of the Donner Party resorted to cannibalism. The location of that act became known as Donner Pass and if you are driving from the Bay Area to Reno Nevada you will go right through there.

3 New year coming up with new laws going into effect. Note that a number of States are raising their minimum wage (bluer than blue States). A very stupid activist is quoted here saying that raising the minimum wage creates jobs. Some people are too stupid to breath.

9 BB takes note of the rise of third world diseases in the US that had been eradicated. The last time I reported on this I included a quote from the CDC who said it had nothing to do with all the illegals pouring from those third world shitholes. Like everyone else in the corrupt Obama regime, they lied.

Thought of something regarding the AG in Virginia re: CCW reciprocity.

Could other states refuse to reciprocate recognizing Virginia driver's licenses or vehicle registrations?

32 Wonder why, Vic? Notice I used could instead of would.

I've been told for years, driving is a privilege not a right.

Posted by: Golfman - Xenophobe Extrodinaire at December 26, 2015 06:43 AM (bPXBn)

33 Because the Consitution says other States must recognize such things as licenses etc. But they have never applied that to gun control laws because nearly every State had different laws and it wasn't until Heller that the second amendment was incorporated, and even then it was only half-ass incorporated.

Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at December 26, 2015 06:46 AM (t2KH5)

34 VA's AG's rationale was that some states CCW requirements weren't as stringent as other states. That's why 5 states' reciprocity remains.

Using the AG's rationale, we could slide down many favorable slippery slopes. Some states license illegal drivers.

Posted by: Golfman - Xenophobe Extrodinaire at December 26, 2015 06:47 AM (bPXBn)

In the States that refuse to license illegals there is already movement by illegals to force them to give them licenses. Because States like CA have licensed them. But that whole driver's license kerfunckle is about to explode because the requirement to have licenses that conform to the federal regulations put in place by the 9-11 commission is about to actually go into effect.
And not all States meet those requirements.

58 I was supposed to go home for Christmas a couple of weeks ago, but I ran into Visa issues, so I wasn't able to leave Saudi Arabia. In fact, I had to drive to the King Fahd causeway twice in a week to get it straightened out. This is a 5 hour one way trip from Riyadh, where I live. That is, it is 5 hours if I don't go under 75 the entire way (and the Saudis rarely go that slow).

The issue wasn't my fault as the Saudis hadn't stamped my passport when I left the kingdom, nor did they stamp it when I reentered, though the Bahrainis did - both ways. Anyway it is now fixed. However, I did learn that come 2016, they will no longer check visas at security when leaving Saudia.

However, I am returning home for three weeks starting early January, so it isn't all bad news...

No. More like waking up at oh-three-hundred with a sense of deep, abiding dread of the future, and being unable to get back to sleep.

Those utter assholes of the GOP establishment with their thoroughly compromised and thoroughly corrupt omnibus budget deal right before the holidays made for one giant turd in the punchbowl -- or, if you will, in the Christmas eggnog. An especially redolent and nasty turd.

So what woke me up was the realization that our country is going into the pivotal 2016 election, coupled to the parallel realization that whichever of the two parties wins in November, the country loses. I have no one at all to look forward to pulling the lever for. Shitweasels or shitweasels. What a lovely prospect.

Here's your daily dose of EZ Dog.


Dec 26, 1943 - The EZ Dog Journals
Cold and windy. SSF continuing attack. Little other action.


Attack continues along the ridges of Mount Sambucaro (Sammucro)
(As we learned earlier this week, the SSF is the Special Service Force, a joint American-Canadian special warfare unit that trained in Helena, MT. They would later be known to the Germans as the "Schwarzeteufeln" or "Black Devils". In the U.S. they are more commonly recognized as the "Devil's Brigade".)
The SSF left flyers or patches with their insignia and the phrase "Das dicke Ende kommt noch" on the bodies of killed German soldiers at Anzio to instill fear in the enemy.

"The worst is yet to come!"

91 So, someone help me out here.

I keep hearing and seeing articles about "Giving back to the community".

The "back" part is bothering me, as it strikes me as another way to imply that success for one has come at the expense of others. In other words, just another way to say that success is evil, and others are owed for your success.

I would feel linguistically better if it were just "Giving to the community".

Kevin Williamson is still worth reading much of the time. Or would be worth reading, if it weren't necessary to wade through the reeking swamp of RINO excrement which that outfit has become.

David French wrote one absolutely brilliant piece for them about the similarities of G.W. Bush and B.H. Obama which I quote to this day.

If only it were possible to have the occasional good bits of _National Review_ without the rancid nonsense of Richard Lowr(ent)y and Jonah Goldbrick and their lot.

127 "stupid activist is quoted here saying that raising the minimum wage creates jobs."

Forced "giving back to the community". It builds the commie ideas, that everyone deserves a higher paying job, even if they don't work efficiently enough to earn it. Then they act like the guy that works so efficiently he can manage to build a factory, he is taking.

It is the divide a pie, or make a lot of pies idea of capitalism. The "you didn't build that" nuts don't realize capitalism and individual sacrifice DID indeed build that. Much they built directly, other parts they built by being so industrious they generated wealth that government could then take (tax).

But I do like the concept of building "community", as opposed to all this top down command and control. Putting money in a local bank, investing locally where you can see what is being done, for the people around you ... all that is being short circuited as NY/DC confiscate all power. Big banks are encouraged to get even bigger, most of our assets flow through the big brokerages and banks.

130 I completely agree (as usual) with the comments regarding the 'giving back' BS. I am retired CS (I know, i know...) and am back as a contractor with a three-letter agency (i know, i know...), in a training capacity. The 'giving back' sentiment is rife at work, not just with contractors but staff CS as well. Usually our clueless senior management expresses it. We all collect paychecks, so i'm not clear as to the giving part.

174 Elijah told Ahab that Israel would be punished with drought because of his evil ways.

179 Well, if we are going to re-write the birth of Jesus, it shouldn't be too hard to re-write the life of Mohammed, right?
