This should tell you all you need to know about Windoze.

And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.

The No Fuckingballs League announced the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2014 class last night.

Now, it’s bad enough that widdle Mikey “Gap Toof” Strahan gets in.  He owns a “record” for sacks that Brett “Hey, Jenn, lookit my balls” Favre laid down – literally – to give him.  No respect for players like that at all.

But, when Aeneas Effing Williams  of the Phoeniz Cardinals (yeah – that  piss-poor excuse-for-a-football-team) gets in, with zero Super Bowl rings, while Charles Haley (only player in NFL history with (ahem) five) gets snubbed again

Fuck you, NFL writers.  You pissweasels are as irrelevant as the bastards who dish out the Nobel Peace Prize.

General, has the Southern Command weathered Leon in acceptable form? Did things get bad enough to remind you of your time in the Dakotas?

Darth, how is winter treating the Realm?

It seems that the price people are willing to pay for tickets to the Super bowl have been going down, the current price being just under $1800 a head. Even this *low* price is out of reach to most Americans.  In addition, it seems that the lowest price tickets for regular season tickets are about a hundred dollars. With the average player salary being about $1.9 million dollars, pro football is most assuredly not a poor man’s game.

While I personally would not be caught dead paying these prices to be entertained, I have no quarrel with those who do. However I do have a question. Professional athletes and other top rank entertainers make a tremendous amount of money working in a vocation which really contributes very little to our society, and the left has no problem; Let a man who runs a company which provides jobs to tens of thousands of people make the same money, and the left screams bloody murder. Where is the logic here?

This mainly will concern those Denizens in Texas, but still….should this surprise ANYONE when it concerns the party of the arse??!!

Seems the Demonscum candidate for Texas governor, Wendy Davis, used their typical modus operandi party line thinking SHE wouldn’t get discovered.

Guess what Wendy, we knew you were a habitual liar. Most Texans are not the bleating sheep (and we have a hell of a lot more common sense too!) that the MSM you so heavily rely on to spew the lies coming from your lying piehole thinks we are. You are so finished as a political candidate. BUH BYE. SO SAD. SO LONG. PLEASE do let the door hit your a$$ on the way OUT OF THE STATE!

Greg Abbott is clearly a better gubernatorial choice. And he’s also the choice that the Generalette and myself support to boot.

ThatIsAll™

Here we have yet another example of the State punishing those who choose to do things their own way! Depending on how the morning goes, I will have comments later.

Anyone here?

Bueller. Bueller.

Anyone. {crickets chirp loudly}

SG RAYEGUN: Airman, didn’t you pass my order for the ALL CLEAR back on the first of the month? {turns to Airman Wazowski standing at the console nearby, and promptly has to look down due to the airman’s diminutive stature}

AIRMAN WAZOWSKI:{cringing and in a sheepish voice, adjusting his glasses} Yes General Rayegun. We actually issued it twice an hour until 0900. We are still looking into possible reasons for the lack of chatter.

SG RAYEGUN: Hmmm, keep me informed with the routine updates. {turns to open the door and starts to walk out}

SG RAYEGUN:{in the doorframe, turns back around} And get someone in here from Environmental Control ASAP, sounds like Jiminy and the whole clan are having a concert again!

AIRMAN WAZOWSKI: Yessir! {salutes semi-crisply and immediately grabs the phone}

SG RAYEGUN:{mumbling to himself} I swear the new recruits coming out of Basic Training are getting more and more one-eyed myoptic. And why can’t they salute properly anymore????

_____________________________________________________





Yes, that time of year once again rolls around.

MEH.

No big plans or anything, just going to quietly hang out with the Generalette today. Oh yeah, and “GUNS UP”. Tech wrecked ‘em in the Holiday Bowl!!

Darth, Vicar, if you need me please leave word at the front gate and the Security Forces personnel will relay your message.

ThatIsAll™

(May you all enjoy the new year!

During this year, may you always be strong enough to overcome your challenges, and may you never lack for challenges to keep you strong.)

KORRIOTH:  And with a tolerable accent, too.  You honor us, Admiral.

VENOMOUS:  I try.

Happy New Year, Denizens.

Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child.

While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger.

When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.

The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.

—Luke 2:1-20 (NASB)

And may God add His blessings to the reading of His holy Word.

Merry Christmas, Denizens.  This season, more than any other – remember why.

This is an example of Federal government logic, do we really want them managing our health care?

Those were the words of our President on this day in 1941. Today most folks seem to have forgotten what happened shortly after 0700 at Pearl Harbor on this day in 1941. While I could rant and rave about how we so quickly forget, such a rant would be misplaced and wrong headed. The Japanese attack happened 72 years ago, and it is fitting and proper that while we should not forget, we should also move on. We best honor those who gave their lived in our nation’s defense by working to make something of ourselves, our community and our nation, not by continual mourning.

As I understand history, this has been the nature of Humanity for most of our existence. Our ancestors would honor and mourn their dead, but they would quickly move on. The nature of life and death in the past demanded this. In times gone by death was a part of daily life. Accident and disease killed people every day and the grind of daily life left little time for grieving or for dwelling on memorials.

Today our success in extending human life, and in making that life easier and more disease free has given us an odd desire to dwell on those who have died. In doing this we help no one, the living or the dead. Yes, we should remember and grieve for those who are taken from us, especially those who are taken by tragedies such as Pearl Harbor, Oklahoma city and Sandy Hook, but if you would truly honor them, move on, do not dwell on the tragedy, but look forward to the life yet to come.
