Another blogger, I respect, recently said , ‘your blog, your rules.’ Unfortunately, seems I need put so of those rules in place.
First, so helpful suggestions:
Unless I specificy reference sothing I’ve previously written, each post should be considered a stand-alone item. Just because I didn't share getting treated for the syphilis I'd ntioned previously doesn't an I've still got it.

Now, the rules I promised:
Comnts are welco, whether you agree or disagree with what I’ve written. I’m always up for a lively debate and not afraid of being proven wrong.

If you think my writing style is crap, feel free share your opinion, along with how you’d improve it.

However, there are comnts that won’t be lerated.

These include:
- Arguntative and pointless diatribes

- Informing what I was ‘rey trying say’ and reference previous posts that I didn’t indicate should be considered in the current one. know, I’m fairly sure I know what point I was attempting convey.

- Debating a pic unrelated my post

- Comnts that are ant be insulting or are an spirited.

So of the above will simply get your comnt deleted, but repeatedly being a jerk will get you banned. However, I reserve the right not delete offensive comnts in order for myself and others make fun of you.

If you can’t be kind, be gone.

Attention - New feature in my blog, effective 9/18/21. From this point forward, sarcasm will be in green font. It should clean up so misunderstandings. Yeah, that'll work.

Also, I guess you could use this send private ssages , if you had nothing better do.

Covid Vaccines & Conspiracy Theories - Food For The Obtuse

Recently, I've been exposed to some of the current wild and fantastical conspiracies associated with the virus and more importantly, vaccination. They've left me completely flabbergasted and provided another reminder of how gullible too many Americans are. In all fairness, much of the medical mumbo jumbo is likely over the heads of those who believe it. The whole mRNA thing is beyond my own span of attention. However, we can still use the tools we all have at our disposal to ferret out bullshit; for example, a suspicious and critical mind. My regular readers know that I rarely take questionable assertions at face value and tend to fact check on my own. For example, one of the fringe outlets claimed that 'CDC data released on July 9th' shows a massive spike in deaths from vaccines. Before I called bullshit, I went to the CDC's website to confirm. Because they're a government entity, they put everything they release on their website. I think we both know what I found; or didn't find. Now, I'm calling bullshit. Something I did find was a direct correlation between vaccination rates and Covid deaths. No surprise the states with higher vaccination rates have fewer cases and deaths.

Another way to utilize your critical mind is to ask the questions 'to what end?' and 'Who profits from this and how?' These questions, and most of this entry, are universal with respect to conspiracy theories in general, but we'll stick with the one at hand. Who would benefit from the successful outcome of the supposed conspiracy and why? Clearly, the pharma companies would receive the greatest benefit by reaping huge profits from government contracts to develop and manufacture the vaccines on an emergency basis. PPE manufacturers also benefitted from a massive spike in demand. Hell, I received some nice upside orders from 3M earlier in the pandemic and it fattened my bonus for the year. Maybe I'm in on the conspiracy. Shit, I've said too much.

What stands out to me is the massive number of 'auxiliary players' required to be complicit in the scheme, but who wouldn't profit. What's in it for them to participate or at least keep their mouths shut? It's not as though the profits pharma took in would be sufficient to buy everyone's silence. Let's look at one of the most important groups of auxiliary players, the media.

Why is it that these conspiracy theories are always 'broken' by fringe media outlets, or bloggers, or some guy in the produce aisle? They're never ever covered by legitimate news outlets. I can hear the cry now - The media's in on it! Sorry to burst your bubble, but simple logic says otherwise. For those who've forgotten, all of these outlets (CNN, NYT, Fox News) are for profit companies. What generates the most revenue for a news outlet? Certainly not suppressing what would be sensational developments. Such reporting would massive ratings / readership, which would make them more money than an entity paying them hush money. The media, all the media, would fight tooth and nail to break such a story and cover it non-stop for as long as that gravy train lasted.

On the flip side, what do the conspiracy theorists get in return for their activities? Attention, money, and (misplaced) credibility that they wouldn't have received were they going about their lives. Who wouldn't throw out a ton of bullshit for that payout? Seems the conspiracy freaks might have greater motivation than those allegedly complicit in the conspiracy they're trying to sell.

Touching on the politically motivated, it would be quite the fantasy world to get D's and R's to agree to this sort of thing (or anything else, for that matter). Make no mistake, they'd all have to be complicit. Not happening. The wretched right seems hell bent on their constituents dying from Covid by keeping them from getting vaccinated, even though they've all be vaccinated themselves. There's some serious motivation for them to be driving the shit out of these conspiracies, if there were even the tiniest fragment of truth to them. But you're not hearing a peep from even the more euthanasia worthy lawmakers, like MTG or Louis Gohmert. I'll let you draw your own conclusion, but perhaps it's because such conspiracy theories are too obviously bullshit for even these dipshits to give oxygen to.

The bottom line is that massive 'evil' conspiracies can't exist in secret, period. Somebody always fucks up. There will always be someone who loses the the fortitude to remain evil and caves. Or, someone inadvertently shares too much with that in Dallas. This almost always happens when one party is involved. Dozens of parties all gettin' down on the evil? Hah! Again, pure fantasy. It becomes more of a farce, when you consider governments are involved. Nothing stays secret in governments. Throw in language barriers and differing agendas of the various supposedly involved countries and leaks will occur. Every damned time.

Ultimately, there's no way the conspiracy at hand could be true. It would have been leaked by someone and amplified through every level of media, by those with the incentive to do so, of which there are many.

Vaccination should be mandatory. Those who believe this is a draconian and distasteful measure are idiots. Your have to be vaccinated against various things to attend school, so you've already complied with mandatory vaccinations and given proof to the school system. Oops, didn't think of that, did you? You're not a fucking virologist, so don't pretend to know what is and isn't true on the internet about the virus, particularly when crosschecking facts blows the damned thing up prima facia. You don't have feathers, so stop parroting everything you read that you fall for. Do the right thing for yourself and your family, for a change. Take off the tin foil hat, say goodbye to Q once and for all, and get your fucking family vaccinated.

Also, stop with the idiotic memes comparing mandatory vaccinations with the Holocaust or any other Nazi symbolism. Comparing vaccination with genocide is offensive, because there is no fucking comparison, you moronic snowflake. While I'm typically fine allowing morons to identify themselves in grand fashion, there are too many soft minds in this country who may believe the bullshit. Largely in the same way there are those who believe the election was stolen from the Cheeto faced shit gibbon; but I already covered that one.

Now, really get off my lawn.

No, Bill Gates Did Not Create The Pandemic

While I'm debunking stupid conspiracies, I might as well cover one I did last night, for my dear friends on the precision rifle board. There's a huge hatred for Bill Gates amongst the crazies, which came bubbling up while I online. It began with a random post about how Gates has investments in various Big Pharma companies, to which I replied "so what? The man diversifies his portfolio and drug makers are almost universally winners." This degenerated into a Gates hate fest, including a bunch of other unsubstantiated claims about how he's using insider information to profit from the pandemic. When I asked why the disdain for the guy, I received a "if you don't know why Gates is evil, we're not going to tell you" diatribe. Add another data point confirming these people have zero facts from which to argue. And talk about paranoid! I accused of being a government agent attempting to entrap the crazies. There's a term for that, but I refuse to give it the light of day here. Hell, they even tried their bullshit conspiracy nonsense with two doctors on the board, calling them liars.

In any case, the following picture posted, claiming that Gates' intent to depopulate the planet through vaccines. The actual quote from him , "The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, or percent. But there, we see an increase of about 1.3." He misquoted in the paper. Wonder why?

For those of us with brains, it's clear he's talking about decreasing population growth, via the means quoted. More on that later. I guess if you don't understand the English language, you could interpret that statement as a desire to depopulate, using vaccines. You'd not consider the reproductive health services to be germane to his statement, because that doesn't fit your narrative. That's exactly what the Sovereign Independent, a now defunct newspaper known for spreading baseless conspiracy theories, did in 20.

A side trip. When I asked whether the poster had validated that information, or if anyone enjoyed their subscription to the paper, I received a response that frankly shocked me. It "here is why i believe it...because reuters says it isn' true..", along with a link to where they debunked it. Seriously, what the ever living fuck???

And now, we come to the validation part of our game, where I bring it all home. Slowing population growth and decreasing infant and mortality at the forefront for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as stated in its first annual newsletter, back in 2009. Here's the portion of that letter, that pertains to the discussion:

When Melinda and I first started our giving, in the late 1990s, our focus on reproductive health rather than childhood deaths. We felt that giving mothers the tools to limit their family size to what they wanted would have a catalytic effect by reducing population growth and making it easier to feed, educate, and provide jobs for the who were born.

We were surprised when we saw a newspaper article in 1998 showing that only a few diseases cause most childhood deaths and showing how being invested in creating and providing vaccines for these diseases. A chart in the article showed that a particular type of diarrheal disease—rotavirus— killing over 400,000 per year. How could a disease we had never heard of get so attention and kill this many ? We sent the article to my father and asked him to look into how we could help.

A surprising but critical fact we learned that reducing the number of deaths actually reduces population growth. Chart 3 shows the strong connection between infant mortality rates and fertility rates. Contrary to the Malthusian view that population will grow to the limit of however many can be fed, in fact parents choose to have enough to give them a high chance that several will survive to support them as they grow old. As the number of who survive to adulthood goes up, parents can achieve this goal without having as many .


To summarize, the claim from the rag newspaper is complete bullshit and they knew it. Likewise, anyone with half a brain cell can reach the same conclusion, without a great deal of effort. There's already a number of articles out there that do the legwork for you. Thanks to Snopes for posting the associated links, so I didn't have much legwork to do.

It's a piece of cake to either validate or trash this shit, but some idiots can't be bothered, particularly when said shit aligns with their narrative. Besides, it eats into their conspiracy mongering time. Speaking of validation, while no one on the board admitted I right (shocking!), the anti Gates rhetoric ceased after my post. Oh, and before the loons accuse me of being a Gates fanboy, I don't give two shits about the dude. But I won't hate someone for being that person.

One of the battle cries of the antivax right wing dimwits has been that Big Pharma is suppressing the horrible things the vaccines are doing and preventing acceptance of the animal parasite treatment, Ivermectin. They claim are multiple studies that prove Ivermectin is safe and effective for the treatment of Covid 19, but Big Pharma is keeping a lid on . The debate is raging on the precision rifle board I frequent, so me being me, I decided think this stuff through. I've already covered the horrible side effects (like getting shot) of the vaccine, so let's talk about Ivermectin.

First, let's follow the supposed trail. The three manufacturers of the current Covid vaccines are Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna. The first two both revenue in the $40B range, where Moderna is less than $B. Merck, the maker of Ivermectin, is of similar size the the first two. For the sake of this article, I'll stipulate that talks and buys influence. Moderna isn't large enough more than a few advocates in positions of power. However, the other three are different stories. Considering they're of similar sizes (huge) I can guarantee you that Merck has just as many government shills in their pocket as J&J and Pfizer and thus, a similar level of influence. Therefore, if Merck wanted to board the Covid gravy train, they'd no trouble doing so.

But they don't want . In fact, they don't recommend Ivermectin for use as a treatment or preventative action against Covid. From their website:

Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today affirmed its position regarding use of ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic. Company scientists continue to carefully examine the findings of all available and emerging studies of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 for evidence of efficacy and safety.

It is important to note that, to-date, our analysis has identified:
- No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies;
- No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and;
- A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.

We do not believe that the data available support the safety and efficacy of ivermectin beyond the doses and populations indicated in the regulatory agency-approved prescribing information.


In conclusion, Ivermectin could be a recommended treatment, if the manufacturer wanted it to be, but they don't. Tell me again how a bunch of flawed studies and right wing looneys know more than the manufacturer?

Thanks another blogger pointed out the source for some of the anti vax lunacy. I ventured into that quagmire earlier today and suffice to say I'm flabbergasted. 's more anti vax misinformation than you can debunk in a week. They're alongside a raft of other flat out insane conspiracy theories about how Bill Gates is trying curb population growth through vaccines. Of course, was a video of how 5G waves excite graphene oxide, a nod the 'where the did that come from?' claim that the aforementioned substance is an ingredient of the Covid vaccine. Not a specific vaccine, just 'the vaccine'.

Part and parcel these theories is how 'the controllers' keep the populous in the dark from the facts. I tried work my way through one of the more outlandish stories, but was littered with videos from various sources traditional media, government speeches, and celebrity interviews. Most of these were submitted as evidence of something. I'm not sure what that was, because the article was all over the place. My favorite 'aha' video substantiation was a snippet of a five year old interview with Elon Musk, said whoever mastered DNA could rule the world. First, 's clear these idiots still don't understand how messenger RNA works and second, on God's green earth would consider Elon Musk be anything but a nut job, himself. A rich nut job, but a nut job nonetheless.

A tangent, if you'll indulge me. The crazies don't believe anything the vax manufacturers, the CDC, FDA, or any other legitimate source say, but they believed the part where two of the vaccines were based on mRNA. Why believe that? Of course, what the controllers don't want you know is that 's no mRNA...'s aliens. Definitely aliens.

Of course, the site has the following disclaimer: The information contained in posts is not checked. Some information posted is no doubt false or posted in error. Yeah, like all of it, except today's date.

My greatest disappointment is that this particular site is no longer accepting new registrations. Surely, that couldn't be because other non-idiots found the site before me and began poke the crazies, could ?

The site is partially fed from another site, which I'll Youtube for Whack Jobs, which is in turn, fed by numerous other sources. That's the part that really does blow my mind, the sheer quantity of places one can turn for incorrect, dumb, and frankly dangerous "information". One almost wishes the claim that Bill Gates is trying cull the population was true.

Anyway, 's absolutely no way I'll be diving into that cesspool of stupidity. My sanity's hanging by a thread as it is.

Today In Right Wing Media - A Woman Has Her Car Stolen

A story, broken by the crack reporters at Fox News, today made some connections very clear. What those were, I no idea. But in their never ending crusade kill George Soros, they blame everything they can think of on him. In this case, was the theft of a University of New Mexico law professor's car.

It seems that the maroon Hyundai of law professor Mary Pareja was stolen last Tuesday afternoon sometime between 2:00 and 5:30. The story goes on to note that at this time the local district attorney, Raul Torrez, was on campus, giving a speech about crime in Albuquerque. What made this crime particularly egregious was that this DA was a beneficiary of Soros, kind of. Soros had donated $7,000 a political action committee that backed Torrez in the Democratic primary.

The story goes on to babble about how bad crime is in New Mexico and seems to make an attempt to pin that and the stolen car on Soros. , I'm not sure what I just read for the second time. really does know with the right wing media? Except that liberals bad, Biden bad, conservatives ( really aren't conservative, just Biden haters) good, Trump good or we just don't talk about him, depending on the outlet. All I know is feels like my IQ drops a more with every bit of this garbage I read.

Current conditions as well as having a shitload of extra shooting gear has me evaluating what I've got that can be turned into cash. One item's value shocked the shit out of me and I decided to share. As with most shooters, I a supply of ammunition of various kinds on my shelf. Recently, I saw some of the one type I sell for a fairly outrageous sum, which caused me investigate market value. The ammo in question is what the military refers as Mk262. 's made by Black Hills Ammunition and is some of the most accurate ammo of its particular caliber. It's also been unobtanium through normal channels since the pandemic began. I bought two boxes of 0 rounds for just under $60 each at the end of 2019, shooting one and holding on the other. A box of the exact stuff just sold for $505 on a gun auction site, yesterday! I just about fell off my chair!
So, $5 per trigger pull. 's more expensive ammunition out ; the stuff for hunting water buffalo is $20 each. But garden variety combat ammo isn't anywhere near what this stuff's going for. Needless say, I'll be putting this sucker up for sale this week!

Picture below, so you can say you've seen a $500 box of ammo.

VAERS And The Anti-Vaxxers

Apparently, I can't seem not at the train wreck that is the anti vax / anti mandate movement. As a result, this morning, I read yet another mass of right wing extremist bullshit from another blogger. His entries are more than copy paste from one right wing outlet or another, along with his own regurgitation of other talking points. Lots of exclamation points as well. In any case, one item that these dip shits keep using support their idiotic claims is VAERS data. Because I don't feel like summarizing, below is a blurb from the VAERS website.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system detect possible safety problems in U.S. licensed vaccines. VAERS is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VAERS accepts and analyzes reports of adverse events (possible side effects) following vaccination.

The VAERS data includes information such as vaccine type, manufacturer, adverse reaction observed a vaccine, and whether the patient died. And seems that most of the propaganda includes cries of " at the data!! See how many people died as a result of getting a Covid vaccine!" The claim the aforementioned blogger copy pasted almost ten thousand people died from getting a Covid shot and scores more had significant adverse reactions. If you've read my blog before, you know what I did; I downloaded all six hundred megabytes of this year's data and went through .

At first glance, the data does appear be quite damning, with over seven thousand five hundred deaths reported as a result of receiving a Covid vaccine. Of the 600k+ reported issues, over 97% resulted from one of the Covid vaccines.

However, if you dive a bit deeper into the data, which includes a description field for each report, it becomes a bit questionable. For example, fourteen of those deaths were due to gunshot wound! While I'm not a doctor, I'd say getting shot, or shooting yourself, isn't a potential side effect of any vaccine. I found more than one instance where someone received the vaccine after contracting Covid, then died. Yeah, pretty sure it the Covid that killed them and not the vaccine. As for the others, most of what I read indicated comorbidity and other circumstances that would either preclude the death being a result of the vaccine or not be able to exclude other factors. The average age of those died seventy four, which should give you an indication of the landscape.

Many of the reportable conditions I found suffered by those didn't die weren't exactly horrific. Things like headaches were the most common. were a I read where they seemed be okay until a week or more after being vaccinated, then began suffer something completely unrelated, like carpal tunnel syndrome.

But can you ignore the sheer of reported issues with the Covid vaccines? In a word, yes. Because what I haven't shared is that anyone can make a report the VAERS system. Yes, some reports come from medical professionals, but literally anyone else can complete the input form and their issue, real or not, included in the database. Indeed, the majority of the records I looked at either had a first person narrative of symptoms or the narrative one or two words. Surely, I'm not suggesting that the anti vax crowd loading the database up with as many false claims as they could? Yeah, I'm suggesting that. In fact, anyone thinks otherwise is more than a naive. Consider this as a sanity ; how many of you were aware VAERS even existed until recently? Clearly one or more entities has been exhorting their fellow anti vaxxers upload reports .

If you a further indication as how patently unreliable and indefensible this data is, consider that not even the traditional right wing outlets, like Fox, OAN, and Newsmax mentioned in several months. Even they know 's garbage and would get rightfully blasted for basing any conclusions on .

The CDC has said they do their best remove patently false or fraudulent records, but the fourteen people with gun shot wounds speaks volumes about their success.

In conclusion, you may see references this blog elsewhere, because I plan on making fun of anyone continues use the VAERS data substantiate anything beyond how easy is sway even a government run database support your own stupid ideals.

A quick addendum, because I thought this worth sharing. I had the data file open, trying decide whether save my analysis, when I happened on another data skewing trend. Almost 2,000 incidents listed "none" as the symptoms. Sure, that data should be used as a basis for arguing how unsafe the vaccines are.

While I'm sure 's copious fodder remaining support further editions of my Old Man Ranting series, I've decided start another one. Today In Right Wing Media will tackle the hard hitting news promulgated that day by such fine outlets OAN, Newsmax, and Conservative Daily, which doesn't really post anything daily at all. More like Conservative Whenever We Feel Like It. Being completely transparent, that's about how frequently I'll post in the series. Wasn't my blog much more interesting when I was regularly getting laid?

Being a thorough person, my intent is read the articles that are posted. However, in an indication of the right wing crazies' reading skill, many of the stories are video . I reserve the right not sit through five minutes of stupidity and commentary solely for the fifteen seconds of what they consider a salient fact. I'm neither a masochist nor desiring any of the crazy rub off on me!

It's one of these video stories that struck me this morning. The title is Attorney McBride: Treatment Of Jan. 6 Protesters Is Historic Hypocrisy. 's a that indicates the hypocrisy in question is relative the treatment of BLM protesters. Fleshing out, seems the attorney representing a few of the January 6th insurrectionists is calling out how his are being treated more harshly than those arrested during Black Lives Matter protests.

My take on this: Of fucking course they're being treated more harshly. They tried to overthrow the fucking government, you disingenuous fuck!!! Furthermore, they continued to plan additional seditious actions right up to when they were arrested. If their treatment was commensurate with their actions, they'd be dead, having been mowed down the second they breached the doors of the Capitol. Do not claim equivalence or I'll sign you up for some gay porn newsletter, asshole.

Thanks for tuning in to Today in Right Wing Media.

p.s. - Feel free to send me links to made up right wing stories that you'd like to see me defecate upon. Either pm or my sticky post.

The latest James Bond film finally being released has, as expected, brought with it the various pundits and their perpetual complaints of how Bond is a misogynist and a symbol of wealthy, white male privilege. On the former, they point to instances such as Connery's Bond shooing a woman away, by slapping her bum and saying 'man talk'. , this happened in a movie released before I was born, so it's really fucking old. If I cared enough to look, I'm willing to bet I could find a dozen equivocal vignettes in other contemporary films. His boss is a woman, who he treats with respect, even if he breaks into her house occasionally. The critics also point to how Bond would remove (several different) women's clothing, acting in an almost predatory or coercive manner, and have sex with them. As Bond's promiscuity, that's been gone for decades. They decided to have only one sexual partner in a film back when Pierce Brosnan played Bond. The predation argument is bullshit, as well. Bond oozed charisma and danger, such that women wanted to sleep with him. In many instances, there was an imminent threat of death to both parties; might as well fuck. Not to mention it's not as though he walked up to women on the street and disrobed them.

On to the potentially touchy topic of wealthy white male privilege. Actually, there's not much to say about this beyond, have you looked around at who's running things? In the western world, it's wealthy white males. The first two people on private flights to space were wealthy white males. To be clear, I'm very much in favor of giving more work to talented non white male actors. However, I'm not in favor of modifying the foundation of an icon to do so. I read the new 007 is an African American woman. (the movie is set five years after Bond retires) Great that new talent is getting cast in important roles, and women are being portrayed as strong characters, but you can't pretend the franchise won't radically change with it.

Amazon has announced plans to buy MGM, who owns the Bond franchise. There have already been suggestions to the effect that new business daddy may want to improve the profitability of the franchise by expanding it beyond standalone Bond films. My fear is that Amazon will do to Bond what Disney did to another iconic film empire, Star Wars. Perhaps I'm old and grumpy, but there have been so many ancillary Star Wars vehicles launched, that I've stopped paying attention. The last Star Wars movie was crap, so why would I think the raft of new shit would be different? At least I think it was the last movie, because who cares, it was crap? The movie about Lando was also lukewarm on a good day, only not being crap because I had low expectations going in. Anyway, that was the last bit of the franchise that I consumed and have no plans to change that. Fuckers.

As for Amazon, they've already pissed me off mightily with their movie, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse. Of course, Tom Clancy had nothing to do with it because he's been dead for eight years. Those who are Clancy fans likely recall his book, Without Remorse, which is the origin story of John Clark, a recurring CIA operative character, in Clancy's original works. It was brutal, gritty, and full of very ugly deeds. The movie is ostensibly the same, yet has a completely different plotline. Being old and grumpy, my position on that is WTF?? While they were fucking it up, Amazon sugar coated the whole damned thing. Without Remorse was not a feel good book!!! A Tom Clancy work, titled Without Remorse, already exists. You can't choose the same title and make it something completely fucking different!

If fucking up iconography is suddenly okay, you may as well get started on Bond films. Our hero now utilizes collaboration, inclusiveness, and mediation to negotiate with the baddies in order to create a win win scenario for all parties involved. Same outcome, after all. The James Bond character was brutal, violent, and liberally exercised his license to kill. How long before he's a dude with patches on his elbow talking about feelings? Is that where we're headed?

A recent exchange with someone on another blog left me with a new data point support my unoriginal assertion that those who are anti vax / anti mandate / anti everything that isn't a cheeto faced shit gibbon are getting their news from sources that don't just manipulate facts, but ignore them altogether. I've decided to take a stroll through one of these outlets and blow some shit up, so you don't have to.

In this instance, I was encouraged to read a story on Conservative-daily's website. This particular bit of news was how a leaked Department of Defense document stated that hospitalizations doubled after the vaccine was introduced. Scary, except it being bullshit. First, DOD doesn't track that shit, because they're the DOD and not the CDC NIH. Second, the supposedly leaked doc was nowhere be found on the site validate the story. My theory is said document only exists in the minds of those who publish the site. What I discovered to be a recurring theme was the use of this self-admitted inexperienced and non-expert attorney as an expert mouthpiece to give various claims more weight. This dude is all over the sight and I can't figure out why.

The lead story today is a standard whistle topic - the alleged migrant caravan heading the US border. Apparently, there's a leader of that caravan and he's 'declared war' on something. the record, this is the same caravan on which the dumb right's been sounding alarm bells about since cheeto face took office. Either that caravan doesn't exist of it's the slowest fucking thing ever. And in case one caravan doesn't sufficiently scare you, there's a story about a caravan of migrants from Africa now. Two fucking caravans heading our way. Yeah, sure there are.

Another awesome story covers how the left is casting aspersions and calling into question the outcome of the election audit in Arizona, performed by the brilliant folks of Cyberninjas. Not they're fucking not, because the audit found that not only did Biden win there, but by a larger margin than previously reported.

Of course, there's a story about how Mark Milley committed treason by having the same conversations with the Chinese that every damned one of his predecessors had.

Finally, there are a few stories near and dear to my heart, relating to guns. First is how Dems are trying to push Biden's ATF nominee through, despite objections from Republicans. Only problem with said story is the president withdrew that gun grabber from consideration several weeks ago.

The story on there is the one about the Biden administration banning imports of Russian ammunition and how horrible it is. First, it's not a complete ban, rather a halt on granting new licenses to import. Existing licenses will be left alone, preventing an interruption in supply. Second, the REAL conservative position on the subject would be to absolutely make it more difficult to buy ammo from our enemy, likely through higher tariffs, and engage with domestic suppliers to find out why they can't be competitive. To me, this dramatically illuminates these morons' agenda of not really being conservative, but doing everything they can to torpedo Biden and the Democrats. Ultimately, they give zero shits about conservative ideology.

I may have signed up to comment on that story...completely by accident, of course.

Oh wait, this thing is like herpes...it keeps on giving. The absolute story on there is about how the FDA is going to force vaccinations and use blow darts to carry them out. Until I hit that story, there was a part of me that wanted to give the ignorant some benefit of the doubt. But damn, you have to be a bit of a moron to buy that one. Blow darts!!!

Another in the Old Man Ranting Series.

Perhaps my motives are more base than those of other users of this site, although I doubt it, but I consider the videos said other users post be amateur porn. Real sex, if you will, published by exhibitionists. And some of those posted on this site are excellent in that respect and very . However, nothing disappoints me more than clicking on a promising video, be blasted with some stupid music (typically hip hop) that they've mixed in at ear bleed levels. Even worse is when they've run the video through some free editing software and incorporated EVERY fucking special effect in the package.

As stated in my previous rant on filters, it's not 'creative' at all the effects options on a piece of software and say 'yes'. 's incredibly unoriginal, dumb and, makes your content unwatchable. No one cares about anything beyond watching you have sex, unless you're boring or ugly, in which case, no one wants see your videos, period. The worst are the ones that build on abysmal video; dark, shaky, with no indication of what the 's going on.

Obviously, the above doesn't apply those edit in order conceal their identities. 's also one video I've come across that has a Motley Crue soundtrack, that remains the sole exception my assertions above. 's quite entertaining.

While we're on the subject of videos, perhaps someone could help with a quandary that has me vexed. The mods of this fantastic, well run website, free of fakes and good value for , denied a video I posted of a charming woman blissfully riding me orgasm. Their rationale was that I was not in the video. In reality, a part of me is present, but concealed. However, when I peruse those videos posted by others, I see hours upon hours of content that not doesn't contain the owner of the profile, but is copyrighted by someone else. This includes professional porn. The powers that be appear be perfectly fine supporting piracy and copyright violations, but won't allow my video that belongs me, be on their site. In my best Tucker Carlson voice (I hate that fucker), I wonder why that is?

While I tend gravitate toward Top Gun as a timeless story that helps me to understand and address any situation, 's another tale I find particularly useful, from a relationship perspective. While would have been more helpful post this while I was writing about my relationships and encounters, better late than never.

was once a man discovered a alligator in his back yard. Being an animal lover, he was afraid the poor thing would perish, being separated from its , so he took in and raised as a pet, naming Ricky. This man loved Ricky unconditionally and lavished him with attention. He gave Ricky and fed him the best alligator chow. In order for Ricky to feel like he was in its natural habitat, he had an enclosed lagoon built in his back yard, with a tub for when the gator was stressed. He was positive his love and these gestures got through to the now full grown alligator, suppressing the beast's natural predatory instinct.

One day, he was teaching Ricky how to fetch, when Ricky decided fetch him and mauled him death.

When the man awoke at the pearly gates, face face with Saint Peter, he was dumbfounded and heartbroken.

"I don't understand how this happened! I loved Ricky with all my heart and did everything I could demonstrate my affection. Yet, he mauled me death!"

Saint Peter responded, "What do you expect? He was an alligator and that's what alligators do, you dumb shit!"

The moral of the story is that regardless of how sincere and earnest your actions, you can't change the nature of another and can lose your head over it. Literally.

Perhaps some context would be of value here. This post has nothing to do with illegal aliens r1ping and pillaging. Not sure how anyone would make that leap, but that's a subject for another day. The first time I shared this story was during my divorce. True to her word, my borderline ex wife was pulling every underhanded trick she could to punish me for abandoning her. A couple of friends couldn't understand why I wasn't livid over her nasty stunts. My answer was that a borderline was like an alligator. Her brain was wired to hate me, so why get angry over something she couldn't control? have been other instances where this story has applied (e. others with abandonment issues) as well.
