Some Random Thoughts

I’m home sick today. This is what happens when you work in an enclosed environment with folks who have kids. Kids are kind of like little vats of infectious disease. I found that out when my own kids were in school and would bring home all sorts of germs. But now that both my kids are gone, I miss the little disease-carrying petri dishes of crud!

Speaking of which…

I took my son to start his freshman year at UNC Charlotte three weeks ago. I didn’t cry. I swear! I was actually quite relaxed for a parent who has delivered her firstborn into something resembling adulthood! He immediately got involved in a fraternity, which he plans to rush this semester. He’s now involved with the College Republicans, and he’s doing ROTC. Oh, and that’s in addition to his part-time job, which he works to pay for his car and auto insurance. To say I’m proud would be an understatement.

Oh, and he turns 18 tomorrow.

The house still hasn’t sold. What the child molester Cooper and his scummy hag of a wife did to me is indescribable. In addition to having caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to my property, they also ruined my chances of selling this house at the peak of when I could sell it. Now, the house is beautiful, but the season for selling a home has passed. I’m paying 80 percent of my take-home pay for my rent and the mortgage on the house. I’m turning to my parents for help, which I hate to do, but don’t have much of a choice. I hope to pay my parents back after I sell the house, but at this point, I’m just hoping I can sell it and not lose my shirt. The Coopers are the lowest form of scum.

My friend Evelyn is shuttering her crochet business. It’s too bad, because she’s a phenomenal talent! But she is having a sale on her Etsy page, so if you want something beautiful for a Christmas gift, or just for yourself, check it out.

Speaking of Christmas… I saw a Christmas commercial. The day after Labor Day. While we’re going through a heat wave here in DC. What. The. Fuck.

Here’s something I’m beyond belief excited about. Two of my favorite authors are collaborating on a novel. Sarah Hoyt and Larry Correia are writing a Monster Hunter International novel “Guardian.” Together. Actually, “excited” is sort of an understatement. I’m losing my shit thrilled!

No, I’m not blogging about that hypocritical twat Kim Davis. No way. But for those who want me to say something…


Donald Trump once again stuck his foot in his mouth. Seriously, how Trump supporters can take that fucking buffoon seriously, I can’t even imagine! He may be a good businessman, but he’s borderline retarded when it comes to anything else related to foreign policy, diplomacy, and being a decent human being.

“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?” Trump said to [Rolling Stone writer Paul] Solotaroff. “Can you imagine that, the face of our next president.”

This coming from someone who looks like this:


Can you imagine something that looks like this being our President? Why would anyone vote for that?

Of course now, the cock slurper is backing off and claiming he meant Fiorina’s personality. No, REALLY!

Survey says…


Oh, and by the way, my buddy Mike Williamson won an award for his short story “Soft Casualty.” I’ve often told him this is one of the best stories he’s ever written, and seems I was right, as I told him in a text recently.


If you haven’t read it yet, you should. It’s free, and it’s here. Enjoy!

I agree with another friend of mine, who says that this Baen award is much more interesting than the Hugos have become.

Another friend commented that “one side benefit of this whole Hugo kerfuffle has been the introduction of many new and wonderful books and authors…”

I think at least one Sad Puppies goal has been accomplished. Kudos to Larry Correia, Brad Torgersen, and others for making that a success!

  1. As you know, I am also a big fan of Michael Williamson’s work. Good to see that he’s recognized in this fashion.

    I must disagree with your attitude towards Ms Davis, however. Regardless of how the media is portraying her opposition to gay marriage, the fact is, she’s upholding her oath of office which pledges to uphold the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and that takes precedence over ANY federal law to the contrary because no “power or duty” is delegated to the federal government in the matter of marriage (or abortion, for that matter) so, according to the 10th Amendment, such power and duty devolve to the STATES, or to the people themselves, and THAT State has prohibited “gay marriage” in its Constitution.


    1. I don’t want to argue legal issues while I’m sick, but you’re wrong. She herself stated in her legal brief that her job was “upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws.” I repeat: UPHOLDING THE FEDERAL AND STATE CONSTITUTIONS AND LAWS.”

      This was her job. She refused to do it. That is all.


    2. Actually, it doesn’t MATTER what her “brief” says. The fact is, the feds have NOTHING to say about “marriage” as an institution so the ONLY law pertaining to this issue is Kentucky law. Of course, some federal judge declared that law “unconstitutional” but it demonstrably IS NOT. The 10th Amendment makes it abundantly clear.
      Sorry you’re sick. Get well quick.


    3. I am going to have to agree with pappad here, as it is technically suppose to be a state reserved power IAW the Constitution/Bill of Rights. There for she is still “upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws.”

      That being said, she is still a Fat A** Hole and her only legal leg to stand on is the fact that it is against the state constitution. The religious excuse is bulls***, and if KY changed their constitution tomorrow to legalize it, she have no legal argument not to issue marriage licenses.


    4. Sorry, but no-one in ANY government, and no voter anywhere, gets to impose a religious restriction of ‘marriage’ on ME. First Amendment. Which yes, does over-ride the state.


    5. Pavepusher – What has the 1st Amendment to do with “marriage?” What’s at stake here is that the Federal Government (including SCOTUS) has no CONSTITUTIONAL authority to involve itself in “marriage” issues–assuming, of course, that you believe in ALL of the Constitution, including the 10th Amendment which CLEARLY leaves marriage issues up to the STATES and not the feds.


      1. And the 14th amendment clearly states:

        nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; NOR DENY TO ANY PERSON WITHIN ITS JURISDICTION THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS. (emphasis mine)

        I have a longer post on this coming with the caveat that I’m not an attorney, and I’m pretty sure neither are you. That said… to me this is more of an ethical/moral issue.

        More later.


  2. I read the short story. How ‘Twilight Zone’ can you get? It is probably inappropriate to do so, but at the end, I burst out laughing at the twist in it. He had me fooled up to the end. I love that kind of surprise. Quite well done!

    I hope your house finds its market. It’s tough right now. My sister’s house (which I thought she paid too much for) is now officially underwater. If I thought it would do any good, I’d put a circle of frozen baby limas on the front steps (no mung beans, unfortunately) and play some drum music over them. As it is, I’ll think positive thoughts on your behalf. Words just as well.

    I love that shot of The Donald. It’s just as well he did show up. I don’t know how serious he is about the job, but he does have a recurring case of foot-in-mouth disease. As much as he loves the attention he gets from hogging the spotlight,
    I wonder if he’s just doing the political hack because he can. He’s not said a word about preventing a looming recession. His diplomatic skills are non-existent. He has no proposal for any ME refugees who may come here. He seems to be mostly about ‘hey, LOOK at me!’ and not much else. If he somehow got the nod and picked a more reasonable soul for veep, OK. But he needs to have someone face him down over issues he refuses to address, or else addresses with blather and balderdash instead of something solid. It’s early days yet. I’m waiting to see what really happens.

    1. My prediction is that Trump will lose the nomination and run as a 3rd Party candidate–self-financed–just as Perot did in ’92 and ’96, hoping to split the conservative vote and give the nod to the Democrat candidate…even if it’s NOT Hillary. I know he’s “pledged” not to do that, but such a pledge is immaterial to him, primarily because it contains no down-side for him. What’s the RNC gonna do?” Sue? He’ll simply claim that the GOP was “unfair” to him and his campaign and further claim that negates his “pledge.”


      1. Can’t disagree with this. He’s a narcissistic piece of detritus.


  3. Technically speaking the Amish do not have a problem with technology. They believe in being completely self sufficient, and they don’t want to rely on anything that they can’t maintain within their villages. That is why they shun modern technology since it requires things from the outside world to fix. Basically in a sense they are just a bunch of very dedicated doomsday prepers.

    1. LOL – the meme just made the post funny. I could have used the Muslim wanting to deny a woman a drivers license because of his faith one too. Just chose this one, because she looks so damn stern!


  4. Well Muslims have a point, everyone knows women are horrible drivers.

    Hope you feel better.

    1. LMAO! Fucker! 😉

      Yeah, I’m better. Still coughing and a bit congested, but I think I staved off the worst of it with Thai food that was so spicy, it brought tears to my eyes!
