Who’s up for Beyond Veggies?

Filed under: Humor, Life — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 11:37 PM (23:37)

Sunday afternoon, I picked up burger at Carl’s Jr, and noticed that they’re making a significant push in marketing their plant-based “Beyond Burger.” [1]

Same goes for Burger King and their “Impossible Burger.” [1]

Speaking for myself, I’m up for some Beyond Broccoli

Have a craving for a food with the disgusting taste and texture of broccoli but the nutritional value of bacon? Well say hello to Beyond Broccoli, the only vegetable made from 100% real pork!

“Every one of our pigs is fed a diet consisting entirely of wholesome, organic broccoli,” said company spokesman Brad Weimaraner. “So each bite of its flesh tastes like a crisp, delicious floret picked fresh from the vine, or whatever it is that broccoli grows on.”

Weimaraner says Beyond Broccoli is currently available in bacon, pork chop, and ham varieties. But they’re considering adding kielbasa and Canadian bacon options to break into the international market.

I’m sure that any residents of the Alpha Lyrae system wouldn’t appreciate the screechy asswipes who have co-opted the name “vegan.”

What I’d really like to see is Beyond Asparagus, Beyond Cauliflower, and most especially Beyond Brussel Sprouts.

The 2020 DNC Presidential “Debates”

Filed under: entertainment, Humor, Media, Politics — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 3:28 PM (15:28)

For those of you who have been carefully watching the DNC-sponsored “debates” between various “presidential candidates,” trying to figure out which of them has the most “innovative” “solutions” to America’s “problems,” let me sum them all up for you with a picture —

The DNC and its affiliates, as they’ve been since 1970. [Image H/T Stephen Carville]

As far as any of these . . . individuals . . . is concerned, your life, liberty, money, property, and pursuit(s) of happiness don’t belong to you at all.

NONE of these . . . persons . . . displays any evidence of caring about your individual rights, privileges or immunities in the slightest.

Rather, in their minds, your life, liberty, money, property, and pursuit(s) of happiness are theirs, to take away, to give to others, to use as they see fit, or to destroy, at their arbitrary and capricious whim.

In their minds, your individual rights, privileges or immunities aren’t yours at all in any way, but theirs, to be granted to you or taken away from you at their discretion.

In the end, tuning in to these cretins and idiots is a total waste of time, electricity, and bandwidth, in my opinion.

Cash In With “Gun Control” AND Support the Second Amendment

Filed under: Events, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Resistance, Self-Defense, Technology — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:20 PM (17:20)

Every gun should be a happy and wanted gun, adopted by loving owners who will care for it and feed it and make sure that there are plenty of other guns nearby to keep it company.

Still, most of the Political Classholes, along with their flunkies among law enforcement and the media, are working to part you from your firearms by hook, crook, or any other means available to them.

For example, this event in Albuquerque currently scheduled for Saturday, 13 July 2019, as advertised covered by KOB

APD to hold gun buyback event

The event in question isn’t a “buyback” at all, unless the City of Albuquerque or Bernalillo County were at some point in the business of providing firearms to private citizens — the people didn’t get them from the City or County in the first place, so the event organizers are not buying any guns back from anyone.

This is nothing more than a publicly-funded turn-in-your-guns-now-for-a-pittance-so-we-don’t-have-to-red-flag-you-and-maybe-kill-you-later scheme.

Most people don’t realize that this could be a way to make some easy cash at the expense of the victim disarmers and hoplophobes.

Simply shop the plumbing sections of Home Depot or Lowes. A hundred bucks worth of pipe and end-caps can be made into 400-500 worth of 12-gauge zip guns. I doubt that APD will be test-firing them before handing over the cash.

And making those zip guns is completely legal under New Mexico law. Selling them to anyone other than a federally-licensed dealer might put you afoul of federal victim disarmament statutes. Just remember to make sure that the barrel length is at least 18 inches (more like 26 inches, as the overall length of your hypothetical zip gun needs to be 26 inches), per the National Firearms Act of 1934.

(Will the Albuquerque Police Department or the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office be conducting background checks on anyone turning in their guns for pennies on the FRN? Signs point to “no.”)

What else does this bit of do-it-yourself “gunsmithing” do besides add some potential cash to your wallet?

It allows you to illustrate the utter futility and stupidity of victim disarmament statues.

When anyone who paid a bit of attention in high-school shop class (do they still have that in the taxpayer-subsidized, government-owned-and-operated indoctrination and daycare centers public schools any more?) can build themselves a serviceable shotgun for under 50 in about an hour, what does that do to the victim disarmament schemes of the Political Classholes?

Simple — it ensures that at least some segment of the population will almost always be armed, despite what the Classwipes want.

Once Upon a Time, I Proposed a Skit . . . .

Filed under: Dark Side, entertainment, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:54 AM (08:54)

Back in the 1990s, a few of us Old Drunken Old Irrvelivent types were talking about potential skits for our public-access television presence (The Weekly Sedition, New Mexico’s Consumer Advocate, etc.).

One of the ideas that I came up with was to have two people sitting side by side at a table or desk, wearing black BDU-type shirts, black balaclava-type face masks, and black K-pot-type helmets. Something like this (minus the embroidery, web gear, weapons and chest plate) —

On the front of one of the helmets, there would be painted a rather conspicuous donkey. On the other, an elephant.

While sitting there on camera, our two TV stars would crack jokes and reminisce about how much fun it was to go after church groups, people wanting to be left alone, gun show promoters, and other “undesirables,” using lethal force, explosives, armored vehicles, and airstrikes, etc.

Such a skit might be considered “tasteless” (especially by the “You can’t say that!” crowd), but seriously, folks? How can signing off on such behavior, even implicitly, in the most roundabout fashion, be considered “tasteful” ?
