Paula Revere with the beer

“‘A wild eyed old woman walked into a crowded bar in downtown Washington, D.C. [waving] an un-holstered pistol and yelled out, “I have a .45 caliber Colt 1911, with a seven round magazine, plus one in the chamber. I want to know who’s been sleeping with my husband?” A female voice from the back of the room called out, “You need more ammo, Hillary!”‘

Under Obama, Watergate would get a pass

“Richard Nixon was accused of spying on the DNC, but Nixon never ordered any such spying. In fact, he didn’t know anything about it. He was accused of using the IRS against his political opponents, but he never did. We know for a fact that Obama did both of these things, used the IRS against political opponents and probably more.

“There’s no outrage in the media on this. They think it’s great that Manafort’s lock was picked. The New York Times reports this as though it’s something that happens every day. Yep, the FBI showed up, they picked the lock of Manafort’s front door in Virginia and walked in and woke him up along with his family and then started demanding things and taking things….”

The American Gestapo at work. Without a peep from Congress or the liberal media.

The power of Marlboros

Second-hand smoke health hazards are hysterical, bureaucratic bullsh*t.

“…I found myself thinking of my friend and colleague John Ringo’s signature line which is: We went to the moon on coffee, bourbon and Marlboros. We’re not going to Mars on Evian and tofu.”

So, so sadly true. Read it all.

Mexico City Quake

Today’s temblor comes on the anniversary of the 1985 quake of 8.0:

“The 1985 Mexico City earthquake struck in the early morning of 19 September at 07:17:50 (CST) with a moment magnitude of 8.0 and a Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent). The event caused serious damage to the Greater Mexico City area and the deaths of at least 5,000 people.”

In a city of 8.8 million, to keep it in perspective. Today’s was only a 7.1, so maybe not so bad.

I spent that day in 1985 with a ham radio operator in Rollingwood, a suburb of Austin, listening to emergency calls and later writing a piece on what was learned. Communications were generally down then. Hard to say what it will be like now, with greater computer capacity and cell towers and wifi and generally a greater Internet. Ham radio should not be so necessary or useful.

UT in on volcano forecast
