Star Wars honest insights

I saw this reposted at several sites Why Anakin Skywalker should’ve been removed from the Jedi Order for sexual harassmentThey all criticized it.

I think it is an honest assessment of Liberal Progressivism by someone not realizing what they are saying.

Anakin Skywalker murdered children  (younglings), tortured people, and conspired with a Sith lord against a democratic republic.

Bu the standards of Liberals who supported Chavez, Castro, the Viet Cong, Mao, Stalin, and every other tyrant and mass murdering Communist dictator, that’s a day that ends on “y.”

Praising Castro and Chavez gets you an Oscar.

Sexual harassment gets you fired (now that it’s politically convenient to do so).

Killing children and assisting a tyrant to power was a lot less of a problem for this Liberal than was hooking up with a princess.

This article says more about Liberal values than anything else.

Stop talking about gun control

Chicago (because why not?).

Man charged with shooting Chicago Police officer on Far South Side.

A convicted felon was charged with shooting a Chicago Police officer during a foot pursuit late Wednesday in the Rosemoor neighborhood on the Far South Side.

Anthony Woodridge, 25, was charged with felony counts of attempted first degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated battery by discharge of a firearm, according to Chicago Police.

A convicted felon with a gun in Chicago.  How did that happen?  Aren’t there gun laws in Chicago to prevent that?

The officer was taken to Christ in good condition, police said.

I think they mean Christ Hospital, if not, that is awesome.  If I get shot and he’s available, I want the to be treated by the same guy that healed Lazarus.

Johnson explained Thursday that Woodridge had been arrested 25 times as an adult, and convicted of four felonies. Most recently, he was convicted of possessing a handgun as a felon on parole and sentenced to nearly five years in prison last June.

Convicted of four felonies including felon in possession and only sentenced to five years?

“This guy was sentenced to four and a half years in June of 2016, and we haven’t even completed 2017 and he’s out, back on the streets doing the same things he was convicted of.”

So he gets five, serves maybe one-and-a-half.

“What message does that send? It tells them we’re not serious.”

No fucking shit.

“Well, I’ll tell you this: CPD is serious,” he added.

Johnson stressed the need to pass “more commonsense gun laws” to give police and citizens “the tools to be safe.”

That part about being serious…

That’s what Chicago needs, more gun control.  Not more prison time for multiple felons.  It’s too busy trying to keep out Trump to do that.  Nope, just more gun control.  That will fix… nothing.

These people have lost every right to talk about gun control as national topic ever again.

Don’t waste my time in outrage.

Yesterday, a couple of idiots decided to take me to task on what they considered my support for the outcome in the Daniel Shaver case. I was a bootlicker… no, wait, I could be perceived to be a bootlicker because of that and obviously I was not a good gun guy, etc, etc.

Let’s start with the obvious: If you use what you think are fancy word play to insult me and yet say you did not, the you are a perceived and confirmed mental midget for trying to pull sophomoric shit into an argument.

Now, much of the outrage comes from ignorance: They refuse to acknowledge that Daniel Shaver did participate in the chain of events that created his demise and is now portrayed much like a blameless victim, free from any responsibility. Of course, getting drunk and fucking around with what was seen as a real rifle by witnesses is what started the chain of events.

Next on the fuck up parade were the confusing instructions by the sergeant and a procedure that it sucked chocolate salty balls. I am going with this being 90% of the cause of Shaver’s death. Unfortunately it was not him who went to trial but the trigger-puller, officer Philip Brailsford.

Now, were   Philip Brailsford’s actions against the law? According to what the jury saw, they were not. And truthfully, Shaver reaching around to the small of his back is a huge indicator that a weapon might be about to make its presence know,

So overall it is a shit case. No clear good guys or bad guys, just two sides of stupid and unprofessional…which neither is criminal.  So, rather than run from cyber tree to cyber tree looking for a rope of ignominy to lynch Philip Brailsford, why don’t we figure what went wrong and what needs to change within Mesa PD so this shit has a reduced chance to happen again. It tends to be a wee be more productive and in the end it will avoid other stupid deaths.

By the way, these “outragers” never even gave a thought about the civil lawsuits totally over $100 million against Mesa PD brought by the wife and the parents of Mr. Shaver.  Even if they get half, the county is gonna feel that one and probably somebody will have to pay for that colossal load of crap.

You have to accept that in Life, you get very few chances for perfect justice or what you think it should be. Learn to live with it and stop being a perceived asshole when shit does not go your Barbie and Ken Hawaiian Holiday way.

That is all.

PS: One of the outragers identified hisself as a retired police officer who quit the force after five years because he was sick of the cop shit against civilians. Strangely enough, Mr. Civil Rights Cop did not know the concept of felony Stop.
Good try, Butchy.

 

EPSN…

ESPN  is going broke.  It is no wonder when sports writer Molly Knight decide to throw up the Virtue Signal on Twitter like this.

I have only one word in response to this: Baltimore.

There is nothing, be is a business or a city, that this sort of radical progressivism touches that it doesn’t leave broken and bankrupt.

 

Fiefdom of Chicago

Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared Chicago a “Trump Free Zone” live on NBC.

Before that, Rahm Emanuel made a big show about making Chicago a sanctuary city and in the face of criticism by AG Sessions.

This is secessionism lite.  These mayors get it into their heads that they are kings of their own little fiefdoms and are not really part of the US anymore.

What else makes a mayor think it is a good idea, let alone within his authority, to keep about the President?

They operate more like Roman city states than cities in a republic.

Forget Sessions, what Trump needs to do is lay of Mar-a-Lago and get a condo on Michigan avenue and spend his time there for a while.

Winter advice

I caught this video over at The Feral Irishman.

The comments about this video were interesting but wrong.

Ladies and gentlemen, that is called being “high centered.”

It happens when you pack so much snow under a vehicle that the frame and/or undercarriage is resting on the snow and carrying the weight of the vehicle.

There is no set of snow tires in the world on a 4WD vehicle that will get you out of this.  The tires are not supporting the weight of the vehicle, without weight there is no pressure, without pressure this is no traction.

This dumb ass drove onto the mound of snow packed up by the plow.  That’s how he got high centered.

There is one one thing you can do in this situation: DIG.

You get out of the vehicle and start digging.  You have to clear the snow out from under the body until your drive wheels make contact with the road with sufficient pressure to gain traction.

This is your best friend in the world at this point.

It is a short handled garden spade.

Do no buy one of these.

That is a fuck-ass piece of plastic garbage for clearing driveways.  It is not for digging.  It will break on you and leave you more pissed than before.

This is an emergency car snow shovel.  Don’t even glance at one of these in the store.

It is an even worse piece of fuck-ass plastic garbage with a telescoping handle so it has more potential points of failure.

If someone gives you one of these for Christmas, they want you to die in a snow drift and are not your friend.

A garden spade will fit in your car.  If it doesn’t in the trunk, put it on the floor of the back seat.  Trust me.  If you don’t have enough room in your car for a garden spade, you should not be driving that car in the snow.

If for some reason you have to have a tiny little folding shovel that packs away into a neat little bag in your trunk all fancy like, this is called an entrenching tool.

It is made of solid steel.  It is meant to save soldiers lives by digging defensive fortifications in war.  It is tough enough to handle wet, sloppy snow.

You do not need to spend $60 on a name brand one at a fancy-ass camping store.  The local army surplus store or eBay will be just fine.  If it isn’t all steel construction,  it’s garbage.

If you drive a pickup or large SUV, get more than one shovel.

A spade is great for digging under your vehicle.  To clear the mound of snow in front of it, you may want something bigger.

The best snow shovel in the world for clearing lots of snow is a gravel scoop.

These come in two styles, aluminum (shown above) and plastic.

Ladies and gentlemen, repeat after me “a plastic shove is bullshit.”

Get yourself an aluminum gravel scoop.  It moves a lot of snow fast.

At the very minimum, during the winter, you should have a good, metal shovel in your car.  It goes up with with a knife/multi-tool, flashlight, and glass breaker (there is no particular order here, those are the holy trinity of car must haves) in critical equipment.

When you are high sided a $14 shovel is more valuable to you than a $1,400 set of snow tires.

And one more time for good measure “a plastic shovel is bullshit.”

That is all.

 

 

Why we need California the way it is right now.

Because it best exemplifies what will go wrong with Liberal Democrats in full control.

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — California is moving closer to charging drivers for every mile they drive.The state says it needs more money for road repairs, and the gas tax just isn’t bringing in enough revenue.

Source: California Considers Placing A Mileage Tax On Drivers « CBS San Francisco

But wait! That’s not all!

But it’s not just a question about money, it’s also a question about fairness.
State Senator Scott Wiener and others are saying that when it comes to road taxes, it’s time to start looking at charging you by the mile rather than by the gallon.
“If you own an older vehicle that is fueled by gas, you’re paying gas tax to maintain the roads. Someone who has an electric vehicle or a dramatically more fuel efficient vehicle is paying much less than you are. But they are still using the roads,” Wiener said.

OUCH! Remember all that money you thought you were saving by having a fuel-efficient/hybrid/electric vehicle? Well, you also have to pay the California Tax Piper, bitch. Wait, you really thought it was about the Environment and clean air?
