Oh My


Two things are worth bringing up today. First. Today Rush discussed some idiot’s article blaming racism for RG3’s injury, singling out the supposedly anti-Native American name, Washington Redskins. Now I ask you, how can it be racist to name the Washington Redskins after a potato?

Second, and probably more seriously, Iran has evacuated the city of Isfahan, a city of one and a half million people. They claim it’s because of pollution. However, there is a nuclear facility there. It may have a major leak. Have you heard about it?


I'm a Democrat

I loot the Treasury

Thank you for your support


Oh My

What's that zzzzzz noise?

Rad Gadgets

There's been several times when I was sorry I didn't have a Geiger counter, like whenever a Democrat took the presidency, but then everybody seemed of the same mindset and  prices were astronomical.  I guess most of that lot have theirs, and- the others are too young to recognize any threat to their well-being, save for climate change. 

Last week I went looking and found this on on E-Bay.  Bought it straightaway for $35 + shipping, and here it is.  This gummint surplus Geiger is in  pristine condition.  Put a "D" battery in at, did a circuit check and voila! 

I know what MoSup will say (because she already did).  "So what what good is it to know that you're being zapped by a million Islamo dirty bomb rads?" (not quite in those terms).  There are a hundred things which I won't bore you with because you'll figure them out. 

By the by - do any of you remember Missy Kelley? She recommended that I buy Nuclear War Survival & Skills in 1999, and I did.  It was a revelation, and I heartily recommend it to everyone as a guide.  Whoa, I just noticed that I mentioned this before - as one of my very first blog-spot posts in 2002.

Tuna on Whole Wheat Please

Whole Wheat Bread

I used to make bread a lot when the kiddies were non-existent, or still young. Then it became too time consuming.  Awhile back, after buying a bread machine (re-con Cuisinart from Woot - one of my bet buys ever), I started again.  But the whole wheat bread recipes sucked big time, and rye bread wasn't even an option in their cook book.  Recently I watched this video from COOKs, and was intrigued. 

It seems the reason home made whole wheat breads are, at best, white bread with wheat  color is chemical.  Whole wheat granules have razor blades growing out of them, which slice the gluten to shreds and inhibit the ability of yeast to do it's thing.  The solution—melt the razor blades in a milk bath!

This is a 24 hour deal, although it can probably be cut to 8 hours.  I screwed up because after making the Biga and putting it to rest, I decided to watch some movies.  The next day I discovered that I was also to have made the "soaker" at the same time, so I was behind.  I made the soaker and put it in the fridge, and after 8 hours continued with step three.

Res Ipsa LoquitorLet me tell you something, combing two clumps of yeast risen sticky dough by hand is a sumbitch.  While I own damned near every cooking device known to man, I do not own a Cuisinart mixer—because MoSup put her foot down and said she would not have yet another gadget cluttering her counter top.  But wait. Bingo!  I set the Cuisinart bread maker to "Dough" and plopped the two clumps in with  the honey, salt and yeast, etc. Voila!

But wait.

I evidently had screwed around with it so much that I punctured magic yeast membrane, and it wouldn't rise.  Of course I only discovered this after waiting 45 minutes and finding it flat. 

"I know, the marble counter was too cold!"
  So I opened the oven door (I had it preheated to 400°) and put the loaf pans on the open door.  Nope.  Still didn't rise. S@&*## F*!#! 

I was about to throw the whole mess away, but what the heck.  I ripped all the dough into little pieces and put them back into the bread machine, with more honey and more yeast.  This time it worked.

Of course the truest test any of my cooking must pass is MoSup's palate.  She freaking wet her pants!  USA USA USA.  I toasted two slices and made me a tuna sandwich, and YES.  This bread is so nutritious that you will actually lose weight and restore your boner.

If you want the written recipe- here. You're welcome.

PS- Here's my next adventure

GAWKER- I have in my pocket a list ...

"..And I have in my pocket a list of names....."

Gawker, the favorite smear blog of the left in general and NBC evening news anchor Brian Williams specifically, put up an item using the same arguments in defense of ... Front Page

Front Page's Daniel Greenfield thusly described Gawker in another piece.  It's so danged accurate that I've soldered it. 
In "Here Is a List of All the Assholes Handsome Law-Abiding Citizens Who Own Guns Some People in New York City," Gawker John Cook demonstrates the depth of the chasm separating them from us.  For instance, I would be outraged at being left off of any list of  American gun owners.  It's a badge of honor. And a proclamation that I am willing to defend nation and family against its enemies. In fact, in today's climate, where the stench of law and order decay is palatable, not being included is an invitation to home invasion. The Left are more horrified  of being publicly outed as being a gun owner than of not owning a Prius.

That said, The Journal news not only published names, but included home addresses in their "expose."  That's a bigger social  media sin than posting comments in ALL CAPS!  Simply not done.  What's next?  A list of where the children this lot don't like go to school?  If they think it's useful, yes.  Click-click.

So bad that Pravda is now more reliable than the New York Times

What better way to staunch protests at worsening economic and life conditions than to make it feel like an honourable job/duty of the people to save "Gia". At the same time, they used this "science" as new pagan religion to further push out the Christianity they hate and despise and most of all, fear? Gia worship, the earth "mother", has been pushed in popular culture oozing out of the West for a better part of the past 1.5 decades. This is a religion replete with an army of priests, called Government Grant Scientists.

Various groups have fought back. This is including Russian hackers, who published a huge database of UK government, scientific and university emails depicting the fixing of data to sell Global Warming, er Climate Change (as if it never changed on its own). And while taking hit after hit, the beast, like Al Qaida, will not die. As a matter of fact, the beast is on a steady come back, as it is quite useful during the down times recession. The US alone spends $7 billion each year on warming "studies", which is, in truth, nothing but a huge money laundering operation, as no real science is conducted and vapid alarmist reports the only product generated.

This is not the first time this erstwhile Soviet propaganda rag has scored a direct hit (How galling is rhis?)  Heads up from Skoonj

Terminal lance is a guy that got out of the Marines and now makes cartoons. He is featured in the military times.

This one was funny. Well, they all are. Crass, what you would expect from a grunt.
