The Bushes Brought Hillary Back To Life – Lunch Alert!

The Bushes Brought Hillary Back To Life – Lunch Alert!


comment:

Yes, and Hillary is still alive with this garbage over Judge Roy Moore. She pretends to be "accountable", or tries to link "accountability" with the Democrats and herself.  This is like Al Capone trying to be the Untouchables.  The Clintons are also like the Houdinis of politics.  Here is another Houdini act being attempted.  She wants to stay in the mix.

Compare this lunch alert with what I wrote about the Bushes before. It isn't just the Bushes.  The entire GOP is infected with this weak mindedness from this tribe.  If Reagan had not have chosen Bush, this stuff would not be happening.

Just exactly what does it mean to be a conservative?  If you cannot preserve the Constitution and insist that the rule of law be followed, the what does it mean?  It is only a word without meaning.  There can be no more conservative thing to do than to defend the constitution as written.

Judge Roy Moore is being accused of something that almost any man can be accused of doing.  With that alone, they are attempting to destroy his candidacy.  Sorry, but there are courts of law.  If someone has a beef, take it to court.  If Moore is convicted, then and only then do you remove your political support.  Otherwise, the left can destroy you at will.  You will never be able to stop the left like that.

The left didn't care that Bill Clinton was caught red handed in a lie.  What credibility do they have?

What credibility does the so called conservatives have when they allow this?


O.J. Simpson Murder Case

That's old news, huh?  Not really.  It could well have been an early warning of what is happening right before our eyes right now.

It struck me just now, that while reading the book Outrage, by Vincent Bugliosi, that there were no eyewitnesses to the murder.  Nor anybody who at least heard a commotion during the murder as it was happening.  You see, how does a murderer kill two people with nobody hearing a single thing nor seeing a single thing?  It wasn't mentioned in the book, that I can recall.

We seem to have plenty of witnesses to "groping", but to a murder there was NOBODY?????

Consider the type of murder it was.  It was quite physical.  Wouldn't there have been a lot of NOISE???????  There wasn't any guns involved.   Just a man with a knife managed to kill two people, one of them a man.  PUHLEEZE.  The very fact that a man was able to kill two people in the second largest city in the nation without WITNESSES seems rather odd to me.  Nobody was willing to come forward at the trial?

Why do you suppose that there are a large number of "witnesses" to "groping" when there is no witness to a brutal murder of two people?

People are afraid to come forward, don't you think?  But they are not afraid to come forward in the case of the "gropings".  I think they both have something in common.  The murder witnesses that didn't come forward were lying by omission.  Those that do come forward now about groping are lying by commission.

I don't believe the women.  They did something to provoke the men, most likely.  Then they run  to the authorities with their complaints, which the authorities are all too willing to believe.  The usual suspects capitulate because they just cannot do anything.

My ass.  Nobody does anything because they are too damn weak to do anything.

Too much power in the office of the Presidency

That may be an argument in favor of the Ten Commandments, and a reason to support the candidacy of Roy Moore.

There is just way too much public attention vested in the politics of the chief executive of this country.  Historically speaking, the one Civil War that this country had was largely started over the election of Abraham Lincoln to the White House.

If there is too much power in one man, it could degenerate into a cult of personality, not unlike what happened in the time of Rome, and in modern times as well.

To offset that, a belief in a Supreme Being could be an anti-dote.

Now, let's look at the objections to the Ten Commandments.  Aside from the first two commandments, the much of the rest isn't even likely to raise an argument.  Most, if not all people will agree that people should not steal, commit murder, cheat on your spouse, nor bear false witness against your neighbor.  Nor should anybody covet other people's possessions, or anything else that your neighbor has.

The one against graven images is one that is of interest here.  It otherwise known as idolatry, and you may get a significant amount of support that this is a bad thing.  That is what a cult of personality is, after all.

So, what is the big problem with the Ten Commandments?  One may argue that this is what modern day society is based upon, anyway.  The one objectionable part would be about a Supreme Being.

Okay, but if you don't serve a Supreme Being, do not you not end up serving a man-made one?  Isn't that what could happen if a megalomaniac gets in charge of this country, or any country for that matter?

Trump may or may not be such a person.  But if he were, Moore would not necessarily be one of his alleged unthinking followers, provided that he is sincere about the Ten Commandments.

The people most susceptible to the kind of thinking that may bring upon this nation a dictatorship are the very people who claim to be against it.  Could it be that they are not against dictators, just the "wrong" kind of dictator--- a dictator that they do not agree with.  But in the end, all dictators become oppressive to just about everybody else.

Of course, you don't have to have the Ten Commandments to achieve a measure of protection against a cult of personality.  Our Constitution does a fair job of that.  But our Constitution may not be enough.  If people do not honor it, it could also fall by the wayside.  Isn't that what so-called conservatives were saying about Barak Hussein Obama?  Isn't that what Trump's critics are saying about him now? 

Anything built by man can be overcome.  That is a paraphrasing of General George Patton from the movie Patton..  He was criticizing the West Wall that the Nazis built against an invasion from the west during the second world war.  If walls can be overcome, so can Constitutions.  If there are those who wish to overcome that organizing document, they have already come a long way toward that goal.  Meanwhile, they have used the Constitution as an argument in order to overcome the much older document known as the Ten Commandments.

Nobody can be too sure about the works of human beings.  It may well be fallible as we all are.

So-called conservatives are crazy, or they are lying


Update:

14:37:

Yes, the reason that an explanation is necessary is that too many people take these people at face value.  For example, McConnell and co.  say they want to save the seat for the GOP.  But actually, they want to lose it.

By withdrawing support, they are increasing the likelihood of defeat.  If that cannot be achieved, they may try one of these ridiculous tactics in an effort to "win".  But such nonsense will only convict them in the eyes of the public.  The public will likely not vote for who the GOP says they want to win.

Meanwhile, Judge Roy Moore has no defenders amongst these clowns.  He cannot because they are not serious people.

In any case, why not let the people of Alabama decide?  That is what they are really afraid of.


11:03 :

If crazy, then it must mean that they are delusional.  By delusional, they believe in something that is categorically false.

An example is this Ace of Spades post.  So, he believes he can keep the Alabama senate seat by confirming what the leftists say?  If the GOP refuses to seat Moore, why would that keep the seat?  Because they confirmed that the voters cannot be trusted when they voted for Moore?  What's the guarantee of a positive reaction to having your vote nullified by a bunch a limp wristed wimps?  Does anybody believe these guys?  Their credibility is continually being tested, and they are found wanting.  Then he says to go with a write in campaign.  Uh-huh.  Split the vote, that's the ticket.

He says both options are hard.  By why only those two options?

Could it be that the lack of a fight from his own party is what may doom Moore?  What if they rose up in full support of the guy like the Democrats usually do?

Finally, this kind of opinion seems to rely on the belief that they are "protecting the brand".  What friggin' brand?  The kind of brand that always folds like a cheap accordion every time the left utters a discouraging word?

If the left can win by simply denouncing the opposition with unproven and unprovable charges, then we may as well stop having elections.  Hell, they did that stuff in the Soviet Union and every other tyrant regime since the beginning of man.  The USA was supposed to be different.

THE MAN SHOULD BE TRIED IF HE BROKE THE LAW.  GIVE THE GUY HIS DAY IN COURT OR STFU.  IF HE IS CONVICTED, THEN AND ONLY THEN REMOVE YOUR SUPPORT.

You'll never keep anything by running around in a panic every time the left makes a controversy out of one of your people.   Doing what Ace suggests is a near guarantee of defeat.  If you fight back, you may have a chance of winning.

Jeez.  Why does this have to explained?



How do you write women so well?

It's supposed to be a joke, but what makes it funny is that there is truth in it.  Just like Limbaugh says about humor.

But what isn't so funny is when there is no accountability in an entire society, like we have now.  Now, tell me.  Who is responsible for that?  The ones who aren't responsible in the first place---women.

You cannot hold women responsible because they will fall back into their femininity, which they use so well to avoid responsibility.

Of course, if women were more reasonable, they would understand this and get a grip on themselves.  But that would end their fun, now wouldn't it?

I may be tough on the gals, but you have to admit there is some truth in it.  Laugh it up, if you can.

Keyboard Warrior

9:30 am

It seems that arguments like this may be persuasive to some people.  It is not persuasive to me.  As I wrote before, even if he was guilty of this, if it is not illegal, then I think it should be ignored.  The important thing to me is that he defends without reservation, the Ten Commandments.

As for the "rule of law", the people shouting it the loudest in this case, care about it the least.  They don't care about the girls, they don't care about the rule of law.  This is just a political prop for them.

A bunch of judges in robes do not make the law themselves.  They should not legislate from the bench.  Our judicial system is out of whack as well as the rest of our society.

Maybe that can be fixed, maybe not.  In my opinion, Judge Moore would be a great Majority Leader of the Senate.  Take that McConnell.


8:30 am

Everybody is taking a shot at explaining what the deal is about Roy Moore.  It is about the Ten Commandments and taking an unswerving fidelity to it.  That is what Roy Moore has done, and the people of Alabama supported him in that.  However, the people in the government do not.  Hence, the conflict.

Our government will abide by the rule of law, or it won't.  When it doesn't, it will become a law unto themselves.  Is that not what is happening here?

The ruling class only defers to democracy when it agrees with them.  That's what makes the Russian collusion allegations absurd on its face.

Likewise with the young women accusing Judge Moore.  If they really cared anything about young women being raped, then there would be an insistence upon chaperones.  It used to be so.  But the ruling class really don't care about that now, if they ever did.  It is merely a prop for their politics.  An excuse, if you will.


11.13.17:

A blast from the past...  Reading this makes me understand that I have made real progress in my fight against cancer.  I no longer need nearly as much pain medication.  I suppose I could do without it if I wanted to.  The pain is not so bad anymore.

What brought me to this post is what I do on this blog.  Yes, I am a Keyboard Warrior.  I don't do real fighting.  But nobody does that anymore in our society.  Everything is metaphorical.  You have "revolutions" that aren't literal revolutions, for example.  The Reagan Revolution, it has been called.  But no blood was shed.  No dead bodies in the streets.  Real revolutions have those kinds of things.

Even though I am a Keyboard Warrior, I like to keep things real as possible.  Indeed, I would like to actually DO things that may make a difference.  So, to back up what I say, I have committed considerable amount of time, expense, and yes effort-- to my off-the-grid project.

Yet, it is still more idea than substance.  Nothing is out there, but the broken remains of what I attempted before.

As for the bigger picture, the broken society in which we live, I can only be a Keyboard Warrior.  I can only write about things.  I cannot literally fight in the streets, but if the time comes, I will defend myself and what matters to me.  I will defend it with everything I have got, including my own life, if it comes to that.

We need warriors in our society.  Words are not enough.  Being right is not enough.  You have to back up what you believe by actually doing something about it.

The GOP wants Roy Moore to resign.  Really?  For what purpose would that serve?  Does that advance the things that the GOP claims to support?  Or does it enable what you oppose?  I think the RINO faction are only enablers of that which is damaging the future of this society.

So, to do something significant: try asking yourself this: do you support the Ten Commandments or not?  Ask the RINOS that, and see what their response is.

I would support Moore even if he is guilty of what they say he is.  That is because he supports the Ten Commandments, and that is more important to me than Moore's alleged lack of moral perfection in this case.

Let's not have the RINOS, like the McCain's and Bushes, fool us into thinking that they are with us.

We need warriors, and those guys won't fight.  They'd fight US before they would fight the left.

Just tryin' to keep it real, ya'll.


The original post follows:

Hey, yeah.  That is what I am.  Hey, I cannot even keep my eyes open half the time.  I am so doped up on meds that I am sleepy all the time.

So, if I write something like the GOP going on offense, I certainly don't mean ME.  I couldn't fight my way out of a wet paper bag right now.

Keyboard warriors are just words in cyberspace.  Not that I don't want to be taken seriously.  On the other hand, I am basically an ideas guy.  Ideas guys vs. Action guys.

When I am not half asleep, I'm at my brother's repair shop.  He does real stuff.  Fixing a car is real.  Buying one not so much.  I am more inclined to buy one.

What's that you say?  It just seems to me that if you know how to get one running right, it is a lot better than buying something.  You don't always have the option of buying one.  Buying one is a big step away from making one or fixing one.

I started in the auto repair biz when I was young.  I didn't stick with it.  There's the difference between him and me.  Not that I don't stick with things.  But fixing cars requires something that I seem to lack.  He says it is persistence.  But I don't think I lack persistence.  Maybe it is persistence combined with audacity.  You have to be audacious to do some of the things he does.  He does stuff I would never do.  It seems rather chancy, I would say.  Like putting a junk car on to a trailer. 

He spent an entire morning doing that.  The junk car had no wheels, as he took the axles off and  used them for another project.  No place to put the wheels.  Try to imagine getting a junk car on to a trailer without the benefit of wheels.  That's just the beginning.  You have to get the trailer there, which was tricky in itself.  There's not that much room.

I could go on, but you should be able to figure it out.  Keyboard warriors don't put junk cars on trailers.  It is the real deal to do stuff that is real.  Let's not kid oneself.

The truth be told, I never did like Hannity

Now it's Hannity turning on Moore.

Move over Judas, Hannity is the big dog of betrayal now.

It's about the money.  Better to lose sponsors than to lose your soul.

Also, better to tax corporations for no other better reason than this.  Tell them where they shove their money.   At least, one can be hopeful that the people will say no to the money changers.

For the longest time, there was something about Hannity that rubbed me the wrong way.



The (real ) Rat (s) In Alabama

Dick Morris

comment:

Update: ( 11.14.17, originally posted 11.12.17 )

The GOP does not impress me with their willingness to cave in to this.  You have Menendez in the Senate while on trial.  Moore is not even allowed a trial before you run him off?

Even Cruz, who has previously criticized what he calls the "Surrender Caucus", is surrendering.

This does not impress me, but Cruz has never impressed me.  That's why I call them "so-called conservatives".  They do not accomplish a doggone thing, but they sure like to posture like they are really, really rockribbed conservatives.  It is all bravo sierra.

I probably will think long and hard about voting for Cruz in the next election.  I probably should not have forgiven him for the way he treated Trump, but this reminds me why I don't like him.  Nor Cornyn for that matter.


the original post follows:

Hmm.  Morris says something questionable.  Personally, I think the thing is all made up as a last ditch attempt to stop Judge Roy Moore from being elected Senator from Alabama.  Why even consider removing him from the ballot, or even implying that such was a desirable course of action?  If somebody gets desperate enough, as I believe these people have become, then they may well be capable of making things up.  They are certainly doing it with the allegations regarding Russian collusion against Trump.

Voters should disregard this latest gambit.

I read a bit about Moore on Wikipedia.  I like the dude.  I do not believe the accusations.  He may go far in politics, believe it or not.  This kind of guy may well be what the doctor ordered for this country.  It all depends upon sincerity.  There is a risk of insincerity every time you deal with politicians.

Just consider the craziness that has become so pervasive in Western society.  Moore could be a good remedy for that if he is sincere.  If not, he will be a disaster.

Update:

There seems to be some doubt about the accuracy of the allegations.  No links being cited, though.  One of the accusers is a Democrat operative, or something to that effect.  This allegation is most likely politically motivated.

Polls conflict.  Well, one thing is certain: some people are going to believe it, so it most likely will hurt. 

My hope is that it will backfire bigtime.  One way to stop this kind of crap is to burn it big time.  Once this type of thing is burned, the motivation to avail oneself of the tactic will be diminished.


Homemade and designed solar water distiller

Prev    Next

Another post in the water sub series in the main off the grid series of posts.


Originally posted 10.06.17, updated on,

11.14.17:

A few ideas have sprung up in my mind.  I want to do this as cheaply as possible, right?  Okay, then why use studs and plywood?  I could use fencing planks and cardboard.

However, it must be waterproofed.  For that, I could use something a bit more expensive.

So, two fence planks, with a third one used for the two sides.  The bottom will be cardboard.  The third one can also reinforce the cardboard so that it can hold the weight of the water.  The dimensions would be about five feet by one feet by about six inches deep.

On second thought, it could be shallower, so that means cutting the planks in half lengthwise.  It could still hold plenty of water.

The reason for shallow water is that the heat will evaporate it faster that way.

Not to mention that the wood will go further.  Three planks may make two of these.


10.15.17:

I am considering adding some copper tubing as a condenser.  How much would be necessary, and how can I make this as simple as possible?

I hate complications.  Especially when I have to execute them.  Simplicity is tough enough.

It comes in coils, so if I leave it in a coil while gradually let it rise higher.  It would have to be supported somehow.  Also, any condensation must drain back where it is supposed to go, not back into the water that I want to clean up.

Can put a separator at the end, with gravity sending the condensate into a collection bottle.  It can be like a gutter that runs from the top part of the distiller, down to where I want to separate the dirty water from the area where the condensate drains into it.  About a foot long piece of metal bent in half will do the trick.

10.13.17:

An idea sprang up in my mind.  Why use plywood?  I can use 2x4x8' studs.  Cut them down to the size needed, and enclose an area that will hold about nine gallons of water.

I think the idea could work, so now I can think of how to optimize it.  What I mean is to add a condensation chamber to it, like the linked youtube presentation below.

Would it be worth it to circulate cold water through a tube, and let the hot moist air condense around that tube, thus increasing the output?  No.  Actually, you don't need to circulate water at all.  Just the air.

You could have a Styrofoam cooler attached to the distiller.  Hot moist air will be conducted into the cooler, but enclosed, as the moist air would be inside a tube that connects the distiller and the cooler.  The tube would be submerged inside the cooler, and the air would be circulated through the tube and back into the distiller to be reheated by the sun.  As the hot moist air cools, it will condense inside the tube, and can be collected.

This setup would require but a small amount of electricity to run the fan that circulates the air.




10.08.17:

11:30 am:

Here is a professional looking application of this idea.  This version is demonstrated in a four part series on youtube.   Frankly, I do not want the kinds of complications he has, but some of his ideas are worth a try on my own system.

For example, he has a condensation chamber.  It is made of metal and attaches to the back of the basin.  There is also a mirror that will concentrate solar energy into the water, thus heating it up.


9 am:

More thinking on this has produced an upgrade upon the design.  The amount of air inside of the distiller is too high, meaning the performance is likely to be disappointing.  Consequently the design now is for the triangle to be cut down to a few inches instead of a foot high.

If I keep this up, it might get built before Christmas.  Hmm.  That was joke, but Christmas is just a couple months away now.








the original post follows :


This idea has been floating around in my mind for a few weeks now.  Time maybe to give it a shot?  Here is a preliminary design.  It is simple, but hopefully not too simple that it overlooks some important points.

I want to use the sun's energy and the earth's gravity in order to purify water, so it can be used over and over again.  Pardon the crudity of the drawing.  Perhaps there is a prettier way of doing it, but I don't care about such details.

I should add that the smaller enclosure should be tilted so that the condensed water will drain towards a small hole at one end.

This will require another inch piece be cut lengthwise so that it will fit inside the enclosure.  This will provide the tilt necessary so that the distilled water can drain out.

The enclosed area should hold 7 square feet  times 7/8 inch, which is about a 1/2 cubic foot, which in turn is about 7 and a half gallons divided by two.  Since the materials can make two of these, it can process up to 7.5 gallons of water at a time.

Mitch McConnell really is an A-hole

Hey, it's not just my opinion.  I saw this on Ace, and it is replicated in many ways on many sites.

Here are some examples:

  • November 10, 2010:  "Election is a mandate for me to be a gigantic A-hole" ( not a word-for-word quote, btw )
  • April 23, 2014:  Makes Asshole of the Day "status" at Crooks and Liars
I decided to stop there because they are mostly leftist sites that hate conservatives.  Yet McConnell has somehow managed to offend conservatives as well.

So, it could well be a case that he really is a big freakin' A-hole just like he said he was.

When nobody likes you, could you be in some trouble?



Rethinking the Quonset idea

Prev  Next


This post will go into the Construction sub-series of the off-the-grid main series of posts.  These posts can be accessed from a table of contents and watched individually or in series from beginning to end.


The Quonset idea may have to be reconsidered.  The reason is that I will have to put an outside wall on it anyway.  Having it doesn't seem to offer any advantage if I have to do that.

Instead, there could be the outer wall and an inner wall.  Between the two can be insulation.  It may be a simpler idea to execute.  The Quonset didn't work because tarps I used did not work out there.  Too fragile.

Now that I think about it, perhaps a canvas top instead?  Will a canvas top work?  You see, the problem here is that there needs to be something that is durable enough to last, and is waterproof.

Okay, I looked up a tarp that is said to be strong enough for roofing purposes.  In order to make the Quonset the size I want to make, I would need two 10x18 foot tarps.  This will cover a structure that will be 7x16.5 feet when finished.

Now, if this tarp is truly strong enough, I won't need an outer wall.  That is the original idea.  Make it simple and make it relatively small.

One thing to remember was in the difficulty in getting the tarps in place.  I will need a plan for that.

German decline pervasive in the West

So-called "transgender" officer in Germany is an example of systemized insanity.   How so?

It is delusional to believe something false in the face of incontrovertible truth.  The truth is that a man can never be female, and vice versa.  To believe otherwise is prima facie evidence of delusion.  It used to be that such a statement was taken for granted.  But no more.  You now have to argue with an insane culture that accepts this insanity as sane, and thus fit for command.  It is now okay for insane people to run German institutions.

The Washington Post says this insanity is something to celebrate.  Have they gone mad themselves?

The decline must invariably result in collapse in due time.  It may come fast or it may take awhile, but such things cannot be sustained over time.
