Say hi to God, and tell him Joel sends his regards.

Don’t worry about Michael Bloomberg. He’s okay. “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s … Continue reading

Reading National Review and listening to NPR while filing the ignition points on an AK that lacks a serial number…

No, I’ve got nothing to say about it. It just sounded like a cool title. Also, I’ve actually done that. Or…something like that. Because I’m all bipartisan and stuff. Or maybe I’m just a partisan, I forget which. Did I … Continue reading

Millions of chastened New york gun owners rush to comply with Apr 15 AW registration deadline

Or wait… No, my bad. They did the other thing instead.

Feel like I got a gold star in elementary school.

Next appointment in six months. I passed the course, and walked out with a prescription for a shiny new pair of glasses. Yay! Then I crossed the street to Wal-Mart and found out I can’t order said glasses till I … Continue reading

And it’s that time again.

Happy tax day, guys. I’m off to get my eyes examined. Again. Here are funny pictures.

I hate it when I’m right…

Yesterday afternoon the weather turned nasty. Extremely windy, among other things, and in the midst of it my internet connection got v-e-r-r-y s-l-o-o-o-w. Regular readers will recall that the same thing happened last Monsoon, and that I spent months – … Continue reading

The Taser Shot Heard ‘Round the World…

Probably most people do this. I tend to get my news and commentary exclusively from a few bookmarked sites, chosen because they don’t often pressure-test my cerebral arteries. Because I’m an anarchist whackjob and am capable of becoming enraged by … Continue reading

Ever notice that all these crises tend to be caused by the people supposedly responsible for resolving crises?

I sure wish more people noticed that. It seems the Bundy Ranch crisis, at least, ended on a positive note. The Bundy Ranch Affair, of course, is not over. ‘After 20 years and multiple court orders to remove the trespass … Continue reading

Incremental improvements…

The forecast still insists we’ll have thunderstorms by eleven, a bit more than an hour from now. A glance at the sky tempts one to laugh… …But experience says that when it dawns this windy, one shouldn’t try to predict … Continue reading

“But what will I wear?”

Got invited over to Landlady’s for a chicken dinner. S&L are meeting us before dinner for beers. I always clean up for such things, I’m not a complete jerk, but in the past year or two my standards of grooming … Continue reading

In regard to that Bundy ranch thing, get a load of this.

I don’t think I ever heard of the Bundy Ranch thing before the current standoff, my bad, and I haven’t commented because I don’t know enough to rate an opinion. From everything I’ve read in the past few days, it’s … Continue reading

Prediction: As a trial balloon, “The IRS is the real victim here” will not be a keeper

“The IRS are the ones (sic) who have been actually targeted.” Seriously? Who is this broad? And why do her writers hate her so? Also: While Joseph McCarthy may indeed be a stain on American history and I’m not at … Continue reading

Y’know…when you see it all together like that, it’s kinda creepy.

Sounds like love. Which would creep me right the hell out if that were my name he kept wheezing. “This restraining order by the KOCH BROTHERS KOCH BROTHERS KOCH BROTHERS KOCH BROTHERS KOCH BROTHERS demands that I get off their … Continue reading

See Joel. See Joel Finish Projects. Finish, Joel, Finish!

I love Spring! It occurred to me the other day as I planned how I was going to mount this solar panel that I have never actually installed a panel in a working system in my life. I’ve assisted several … Continue reading

In answer to Weer’d's anti-gun image of the day…

In answer to this… ETA: This naturally got me thinking about one of my all-time favorite movie scenes. The moment you accept your opponent’s premise, you lose the battle of wits. Everything else is just talk.

Boy, I got boned.

I got the social ineptitude, but not the knack. After the massive class-action lawsuit against all parents on behalf of all socially inept non-engineer children, I’m thinking we’ll need a huge government aid program. Hopefully I can pitch it by … Continue reading

What kind of sad, sick, masochistic little turd would you need to be…

To ever want to be Jay Carney? I wonder: Does the administrative branch run an R&R sanitarium for retiring WH press secretaries? That really ought to be in the contract.

So, okay…

This is just the world we live in these days. That’s all right, I guess. It means we’re still talking. When I was younger I expected we’d be shooting long before now.

73! Fahrenheit!

It was a mild winter, no complaints, but it sure has been a slow, cool spring. Windy, too, for the past several days. But today couldn’t have been improved on. I was in a t-shirt by 10, and by my … Continue reading

Oh, Eric! You’re so masterful!

Kinda sounded like a threat to me. I’ll go ahead and confess I commit Contempt of Congress six times before breakfast every day, but I refuse to say anything nice about Holder so he probably shouldn’t be doing it.
