Saturday. President Trump thwarts activist left wing judge in case of Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Saturday morning.  My wife is watching "Style" with Susan Graver on the satellite television.  I have been outside with our new family member, Rufus the Pomeranian.



Rufus is another transplant from Cincinnati.  I can say the name of the city my kids are in now, because in about 4 weeks, max, they'll be living in Florida.

Rufus is 15 years old.  He lived with an old woman in an apartment for 14 of those years. Then the old lady got to the point where her family moved her into assisted living.  But she couldn't take Rufus.

A lady from her church said she would take him, but in reality she just picked him up and made an appointment to have him euthanized.  Her son works with my daughter.  He told E what was going on, and she took him. But she has a German Shepard who didn't like Rufus, and the feeling was mutual.

So, when the kids came to visit us, Rufus came here to live.  We have never had a small, indoor dog before. He is not fond of the indoor cat, and that complicates things a bit. But he is getting along. He always lets us know when he needs to go out, especially between midnight and 3 a.m.  Then he goes out in the meadow, and wanders around looking for "that perfect spot" while I light things up with the flood. I'm always a little concerned something is going to come roaring out of the tree line and snatch him up. Or snatch me up......



He spends his days on the couch in the living room, and seems pretty content.  I have asked my daughter not to rescue any elephants or hippopotamuses.

This song is one I have posted before, but it's germane to our situation up here right now, so I thought I'd put it up again.  I truly never thought, for a single minute, we'd ever have Moslems in this county, on the dark side of the moon. But they are here......












Things are not good in Texas. Looks like they got hit hard. The storm was a big one. I'm sorry it hit the Texas gulf coast, and not New Orleans. The mayor of New Orleans and his lickspittles deserve a good biblical scale disaster, but the Texas gulf coast doesn't.

 Texas has the same problem Georgia does. The real Texans are good people. But the state has been flooded with immigrants, and they've changed the nature of the cities , particularly in East Texas. Houston spent twenty thousand dollars plus,  on changing the names of their schools from Confederate heroes to politically correct names. When people who have no connection to your culture move in, they will start changing your environment to suit their own values, if they have any. It's the way it works.

But they don't change.  They just bring their own issues from their points of origin. They're all for change, but they want you to make it. Accommodate them, accommodate their beliefs, and you do the changing.





President pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio.






President Trump is a lion, surrounded by jackals.  He shows a lot of moral courage, something missing from the White House for the last eight years.   Sheriff Joe Arpaio is an American hero. It's no wonder he ran afoul of the court system. The Dims tried to use their flunkies in the court system to shut him down, but they hadn't counted on President Trump. 





Got Ammo?






I was at Walmart and they had some .22 LR in.  For awhile, you could buy .22 LR there again pretty regularly, but it has disappeared from the shelves once more.

At our Walmart, the clerk who works at Sporting Goods also has to stock the toy shelves. On top of that, when they go on break, nobody works there and even if you find a clerk who's willing to help you, they don't have the keys to the ammo locker.

$27.00 plus 7% tax here.


So, when I saw there were some 550 round packs of high velocity hollow point Winchester .22 LR, I stopped by the ammo locker and just waited for somebody to show up.  Somebody did, too, but it wasn't Walmart people. By the time the clerk came meandering down the aisle, there were four people waiting .  There were five boxes of ammo.  So each of us bought one box, and then the clerk wrote down a number from 1-20 on a piece of paper, and we all guessed it. I wasn't the closest, some older guy was right on the number so he got the last box.






An interesting point of view from One America News:

  1. We have the same problem with domestic animals - Squeak doesn't like the puppies - thankfully, they give her a wide berth (for now) and our neighbours cat has also adopted us - and Squeak and that cat don't get on. Sigh - it's always something or the other, isn't it...

    3. He'll have to steal the five bucks out of his mommy's purse, Kymber. If I could I'd take a switch to him and teach him some respect for his elders. ;-)

    5. Tewshooz, that's nothing. I can't publish most of the comments from the leftards because they are obscene, and they usually threaten me or my family.

  3. yes, the storm here has been pretty hard on areas farther to my southeast. Just rain here, but more is coming along with high winds. This ain't over by a long shot. They say the rain may last through Wednesday, and they won't be little showers. It went just a bit farther to the east than the first track showed that was coming directly at us. Glad for that but sorry for my fellow Texans.

    Libtardville to the south of me is now over 60% hispanic (not sure of the actual number) I have no issue with them, most are hard working folks, but they all tend to vote way left. There was a time back when I worked for the State there was an effort to have all highway signs have spanish along with the english. It didn't happen, yet. this was 25 years ago and I was surprised it didn't happen as liberal as our capital HQ is. We still had too many of the old guard running things then. Not anymore.

    1. Randy,

      I think the flooding issue down there is going to be rough for awhile. The weather boffins are saying the storm will stall out and just sit there.

      I don't mind the white straw cowboy hat crowd. It's the younger one's that they bring with them that cause the problems. We have a town near here called Pendergrass. It has the "Hispanic Flea Market" . The saying up here is that if you get burglarized on Wednesday, you can go down to the Pendergrass flea market and buy your things back on Saturday.

      In Gainesville Ga, most of the signs on the businesses are in Spanish now. There are lots of brightly colored little taxis with names like "Tijuana Taxi" zipping around. There are also some pretty vicious gang members riding down the middle of the roads in expensive vehicles.

  4. Ever notice how brave people are when they don't have to give their name. I think the other name for that kind of courage is cowardice.

    1. Some pimply faced kid in mommy's basement, no doubt. I always get a kick out of that kind of comment, because it means I'm aggravating the white trash. Whoever sent that one was bush league, though. Some of the negative comments I get are pretty funny, not just obscene. ;-)

  5. Look out you are getting the trolls all riled up again LOL.
    Last week I bought a 325 count box of Federal 22LR, for 17$ at the local Cabelas. A few days later they had the Mexican made Aguila 500 count brick down to 25$. That's 5 cents pop, I figure that's about as got as its going to get. That's pre-obumer price. They seem quite well stocked on multiple flavors of the caliber. Not so much at the local Wallyworld.

    1. I'm afraid that weird English guy with multiple personality syndrome may not get the word I am back. I miss his agitprop comments, especially when he is pretending to be a woman. Adds some variety to the run of the mill "we're gonna kill you" junk most of these types leave.

      Who would ever have thought we'd be paying five cents a round for .22 LR. Dat jus ain' rite.

    2. Wretched Mia made a brief appearance on Cro's page within the last three weeks. He seemed to let is slip. About a week ago she also let it rip on Rachel's blog, one of Cro's regular commenters.

    3. The proverbial bad penny. That's one sick individual. I can see letting an obnoxious comment go through if it's not too obscene and is amusing, but why Cro let's that psychopath through the filter I do not know.

  6. I feel bad for the Texans who got hammered by the hurricane. We were very lucky way south of them (Rio Grande Valley), the mass going just East of us.

    Saw quite a bit of rimfire ammunition (except .22 Magnum) at our local Academy this morning. Might try there if you have one nearby.

    1. My wife and I were watching the news from Texas this morning. There was an interview with the Governor, and I was impressed with him. He seemed very competent and was not panicking. It also seems like the federal government is doing a better job than they have in the past in terms of helping out.

      I have never heard of a store called Academy. I don't think we have them in Georgia but it sounds like we should. We have Bass Pro Shop and Cabello's, and that's about it as far as I know in terms of big sporting goods stores.

  7. So glad to hear that the kids decided to move to Florida. We are getting rain in my part of Texas, but nothing like they are getting in Houston. It sounds as though Rufus has a wonderful place to live out the rest of his life. I am so glad that you took him in. Jana

    1. Jana,

      I'm going up there and rent a panel truck to help them move. I'll drive it down to the new place. They are choosing a place in early October, but won't have to be out of the old apartment til the end of November so we have plenty of time to do it right.

      We are having E's horse brought down to a stable a few miles from the house. I offered to keep Seamus in the meadow here. We had horses here with no trouble when E was a little girl. But she wants Seamus at this outfit because they have big barns and lots of horses, and a huge pasture. They have close to 50 horses there, and she thinks he will be happier there.

      I am really glad the kids chose Florida. Nashville is going the way Cincinnati went, and they would just be fleeing one collapsing city for another. Florida has some nice places to live. The kids can work in Jacksonville, Miami, Daytona, or Tampa/Clearwater. Those are places where their company will let them transfer to. I am rooting for Daytona as my family has a condominium at Palm Coast, and we haven't been able to go there in some time. It would be nice if the kids could run up there when they wanted a break, too.

      Rufus is doing fine, considering his age. He gets royal treatment and he's hardly every alone as my wife spends most of her day in the living room with him, either watching tv or reading.

  8. Hmm. Next time some yahoo issues a threat, tell em to pick a day..I reckon you'd have a pretty good turn out of supporters. Remind them to come armed, as he/she/it can bet we will...The comment above sounds like an Englishman, by the wording... Rule Britannia!!! Wonder how he /she/it likes living under Sharia law? And having no rights at all? Heck that situation would make me cranky too... Guess he is too chicken to take it up with his Council... After all, they might arrest him for having a bad attitude... Ha ha ha ha...

    1. I usually just delete that kind of thing . All the comments are on "moderate." Sometimes though, one of them will amuse me and it's not so filled with obscenity that I can post it.

      Could have been British. I have a lot of "not fans" all over Europe. But then again, I have some good friends from over there too. It's like here, there are good folks and then there are the culls.

      It's a strange world, J. No doubt about that. I used to be able to say that there were no leftards or wingnuts living up here where I am, but that's not true anymore. >:-(

  9. $24.97 for a 525 count box of Remington Thunderbolt at local Wal-Mart, and $2.47 per 50 Federal...lead coated...used to be the "Lightning" stuff, now "Champion," maybe? + 7.6 percent sales tax. Plenty of both a few days ago, will check when I leave work in an hour or so... KB

  10. Just checked WalMart has Winchester 222 count .22 LR for $10.97, several boxes, maybe ten ans about the same number of boxes of Federal bulk pack 550 count .22 LR for $22.73 - plus 7.6% sales tax. This in SWMO. KB

    1. KB, for several weeks, we had ammo at our Walmart. Still three boxes to a customer limit, and little selection, but now it's just gone. If you see it, you better buy it.

      I have been looking at Sportsmans Guide, but they have gotten stingy with free shipping and I'm not going to pay for freight on ammo.

      Thanks for the info. I like to see how ammo availability for other people in other areas of the country is working out.
