Pic Of the Year - "Bike Girl"

My Best Posted Picture of 2013

Last year I posted 1,875 pictures on this blog; that's an average of  5+ per day.  Before Christmas I scanned through them all, and picked about 200 that grabbed me.  This was the winner.  The reason I didn't announce the award on New Years Eve, like I planned, was I didn't want this to be the winner.  But it is. 

But Why?

I think a good photograph, or painting, should be evocative.  Should immediately take you someplace you didn't expect to go.  This 60s era photo did that.  I owned that exact sport coat, and my High School gf, the first time I ever went "steady" (and the last),  is a spitting image of bike girl ,  from the waist up anyway. Her name was Cheryl.  That's where it took me.  Your destination will be different, but just as pleasant I hope.

Getting touched in bad places


Won't be able to do much stuff for awhile.  First thing Monday morning I'll be under the knife.  One-eye monster surgery.  No exercise or lifting for more than a week. I have to tell you that I am already nervous as hell, because I don't let anybody touch it ever; it's a phobia.  MoSup has been putting pre-op drops (of three meds)  into my eye, 4 td, for three days now.  She needs a crowbar to keep my eye open, so how the hell am I going to react when having to stare at a light on the ceiling while they cut the lens out of my eye?  The answer is they clamp it open.  That's like being in a state of paralysis while the medical examiner saws open your skull.   Worst thing I've ever had to do, but I can't even see the target at 25 yards anymore.  My left eye isn't as bad, but gets worse by the month, so that one gets done next month. 

If you've been through cataract surgery, you know that you
basically have 2 choices of replacement lenses.  The $1000 lens comes in either far-sighted or near-sighted.  The $3000 lens supposedly focuses much like natural vision, so you don't need glasses at all.  Insurance pays for option A, the other comes out of my pocket,  so I've chosen to be near-sighted since most of my time is spent reading or the computer.  I'll wear glasses for driving. 

Pray for me. That I don't cry like a baby tomorrow,  and have to be restrained. 

Barn Army News - Where Are they Now?

Samurai Attorney General, TFV

Received correspondence from Barn Army Samurai A/G Teresa from Virginia. She's been on indefinite leave for a few years.  She says hi to y'all,  and is having a wonderful time in her semi-retirement.  Truth is, after  co-producing this  Barn Army recruiting film a few years ago, she became something of media  darling; cult following and all.  She requested indefinite leave to explore her opportunities. Also, she promised to look for  several hundred feet of outtakes that included classified footage of a very high ranking officer  choreographing the jump scene.  

Of course, as a senior B.A. officer, TFV is accorded a 24/7 guard of BA secret commando body guards,  as shown in her photo.  Have fun T;  miss you; hope you'll end this silliness and get back to passing judgment on the bad guys. .  Have you found the lost film yet?

"Dumb" doesn't begin ...

"A huge translation of hypocrisy, vilely compiled, profound simplicity" -Will S.

This would be very appealing to all those self-centered, over-educated millennials, who are under-employed, awash in Student Debt, and living in their parents' basements.  It is that group that is also a very vocal voice in the curbing on individual gun ownership rights......I wonder why? - cuzzin ricky

It's a new year, but one thing hasn't changed: The economy still blows.

1. Guaranteed Work for Everybody - Unemployment blows
2. Universal basic income   Because as much as unemployment blows, so do jobs. What if people didn't have to work to survive? 
3. Take Back The Land Ever noticed how much landlords blow? They don't really do anything to earn their money. They just claim ownership of buildings and charge people  ...
4. Make Everything Owned by Everybody - Hoarders blow. Take, for instance, the infamous one percent, whose ownership of the capital stock of this country leads to such horrific inequality.
5. A Public Bank in Every State  You know what else really blows? Wall Street. The whole point of a finance sector is supposed to be collecting the surplus that the whole economy has worked to produce, and channeling that surplus wealth toward its most socially valuable uses.

You stupid fucking moron

My first thought was that Jesse A Myerson was another example of the schooled but uneducated nitwits who've been given crayons and paper by various media today.  While he certainly fits that description, there's more. 
  1. Jesse Myerson, Occupy 'Leader' Turned Far-Left Rolling Stone 'Journalist,' Explains It All
  2. Rolling Stone: ( and obama for that matter)  America Should Replace Capitalism With Socialism
  3. OccuList: Protest leader excludes white ally to gain union (SEIU) support
Saved me the trouble.
