Attention, Washington. Oregon area Vets

It's me, the Ornery Bastard.
 I have a request.

There is a local drive for funds and kitchen appliances here in the Vancouver Washington area.
My heart goes out to the folks in the tornado destruction area and I know funds are tight.

My prayers  go out to those folks.
I don't often get off my soap box but if you are in the Pacific NorthWest, there be a bunch of our youngest and finest that could use a bit of help also.

This is something awefully cheap. some of our boys and gals just want some things like coffee creamer.

Bus tickets?
That's about a buck and a half.

Towels, kitchen appliances, microwaves, pillows and pillow cases, Really?


I don't have shit and I just donated twenty bucks.

Some of these heroes and their families are fucking homeless.

No, that is not acceptable

For the price of a fucking Pepsi, you can stand proud and help one of these families, they are families and they absolutely deserve the help a price of a Pepsi  will give them.

From what I am seeing, just a fucking bus ticket for a vet to  get across town is severely needed.
If you can help one of our own, give this gal a call;
Toni Davis,
Voluntary Service Specialist@
I am sure she would pee down her leg to find out some jerk who calls himself the Ornery Bastard sent ya.

I am not  really flush but I threw twenty bucks at 'em.

One dollar, one unused microwave,anything to help these vets and their families will go a long way.

Tell 'em Busted sent ya.

Where Do They Find These Fucking Idiots?


Congressman Says Trees Are Bad For The Planet.

And no, it isn't that stupid fuck Inhofe this time.

California's Dana Rohrabacher says that if we really want to cool the planet, we should get rid of those harmful trees.

 You know damn good and well this fucktard is a Republican.

You would think that being voted into a very high office in the United States Government in this day and age would involve prospective politicians with some degree of common knowledge, a bit of perspective and some common fucking sense.

Apparently not.

Speaking to the top American climate diplomat, Todd Stern, Rohrabacher asked, "Is there some thought being given to subsidizing the clearing of rainforests in order for some countries to eliminate that production of greenhouse gases?" Rohrabacher went on, asking, “Would people be supportive of cutting down older trees in order to plant younger trees as a means to prevent this disaster from happening?"

Darren Samuelsohn interviewed Jay Gulledge of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, who said that while it is true that 80 to 90 percent of gross greenhouse gases come from nature, Rohrabacher's understanding of the emissions process — and science for that matter — is questionable. "How he's using it is totally off the wall," Gulledge said. "It's beyond the pale. It makes no sense."
Warning, link goes to Politico.

Let me be clear here, this guy is a fucking MORON!

I would bet a hundred bucks that this fucking idiot doesn't know that the Sahara Desert used to be a sub tropical paradise.
Anyone with an IQ over their shoe size knows what happens when you cut down too many trees in a certain environmental zone, the top layer of soil goes away and the local climate changes.
The next thing you have is a desert.

Dude, cutting down trees is the answer to our problems?
Halleluja! We are SAVED!

Fuck me, there must be over a billion trees in this state, let's start here!

Think of the economic boom!

Thousands of out of work lumberjacks, log truck drivers, saw mills and ships to take those pesky fuckers somewhere else, all working 24/7 to cut down all those trees to save the planet!


Then we can all stand around and watch every inch of top soil get washed off the hills and clog up all our rivers and wonder why there is no wildlife in our hills and no fish in our rivers, why we have nothing but mud and dust to eat.

Did he not ever hear of the Dust Bowl back in the 30's?

Holy fucking Christ I am sick of dealing with elected officials who are dumber than a box of rusty hammers.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, there ya are.

One box and one rusty hammer.

It's Worse Than We Thought

That fucking Patriot Act, where our government spies on us illegally and actually collects and stores information about it's own citizens, is up for for reauthorization again.
This time, Senator Ron Wyden (D) (Or), says it is even more nefarious than we thought.

You may think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) says it’s worse than you’ve heard.
Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. But Wyden says that what Congress will renew is a mere fig leaf for a far broader legal interpretation of the Patriot Act that the government keeps to itself — entirely in secret. Worse, there are hints that the government uses this secret interpretation to gather what one Patriot-watcher calls a “dragnet” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.
“We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says,” Wyden tells Danger Room in an interview in his Senate office. “When you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”
What exactly does Wyden mean by that? As a member of the intelligence committee, he laments that he can’t precisely explain without disclosing classified information. But one component of the Patriot Act in particular gives him immense pause: the so-called “business-records provision,” which empowers the FBI to get businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a security investigation.


Here is the link to the WIRED article.

There is much more there.

Basically, Wyden and Udahl filed an amendment wanting the Fed.Gov to disclose the reasons why it thinks it can secretly reinterpret the provisions of the Patriot Act and not tell anyone.
The point here is that Wyden isn't upset so much that they are doing it, he want's them to explain where they get this authority.

From the article;

The amendment, first reported by Marcy Wheeler, blasts the administration for “secretly reinterpret[ing] public laws and statutes.” It would compel the Attorney General to “publicly disclose the United States Government’s official interpretation of the USA Patriot Act.” And, intriguingly, it refers to “intelligence-collection authorities” embedded in the Patriot Act that the administration briefed the Senate about in February.

Wyden says he “can’t answer” any specific questions about how the government thinks it can use the Patriot Act. That would risk revealing classified information — something Wyden considers an abuse of government secrecy. He believes the techniques themselves should stay secret, but the rationale for using their legal use under Patriot ought to be disclosed.
My emphasis.

First off, let me say that Marcy Wheeler amazes me beyond words. I adore that lady.
She digs through the stuff our government doesn't want us to know every. damn. day.
Has for years.
I would nominate that lady for Attorney General in a heart beat, she is fucking AWESOME!

Secondly, I admire Wyden, he is actually one of the good guys.
I have followed him for more than two decades, maybe three at this point.
I moved to Washington from Oregon in 91 and he was in office then as a Representative.

This must be his way of putting some sunshine on some seriously nasty practices being employed while at the same time covering his ass.

What ever the reasons, it must be really fucking nasty what these assclowns are doing.

The Patriot Act should be allowed to die an undignified death.
It goes against our Fourth Amendment rights, word for word.

Believe this though, I got the link to Wired from Fark, the word is out and nobody and I mean nobody, in the government, is going to ignore Marcy Wheeler.
She is a force to be reckoned with and they fucking know it.
She has scooped the NYT, WAPO and every other major newspaper in this country before and I predict she will do it again.
She deserves a Pulitzer for investigative journalism.

Good on ya honey.

What Day Is It?

Holy fuck, I'm still alive, barely.
Twelve and thirteen hour days all last week and just for fun, on Friday, I worked from six A.M. to seven P.M., went to the portable domicile and ate something, laid down and finally fell asleep about nine thirty.
Got woke up at Midnight, was on the jobsite at Twelve thirty and worked straight through until I finally couldn't go anymore at eight fucking thirty Saturday night.
I drove over six hundred miles  last week to boot.
My crazy assed little brother worked thirty four hours straight finishing the job.
I couldn't do it.
Fuuuuuck me, am I tired and sore.
Now I get to drive for three and a half hours today so I can go whine and snivel in the arms of my sweetie.

Now ya know why it has been so quiet around here.
I get off work, have a few shots, eat something and fall the fuck down, rinse and repeat.

It might be a day or so before I start feeling human again so keep stopping by, I'm sure there will be something or other that I need to pound the keyboard about.

Whupped V2.0


A whole nuther adventure tomorrow.

There is something to be said for having work but I am really looking forward to next week.
I have picked up, moved, put on a truck, driven sixty five miles one way and unloaded, three thousand fucking pounds of cardboard in two days.
That is as much as your car weighs.

Three hundred and fifty miles back and forth.


Pain is my friend.

It might be a day or so.....

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


I am very much looking forward to seeing my sweetie.
I think she is going to need to help me out of my truck when I get there.
It could be a few days until I can come up with a coherent post.

Leave Us The Account Numbers

Because, ya know, ya can't take it with ya.
According to some, who need that special recipe for Kool aid that Jim Jones left behind, next Saturday is the Rapture.
For those non Christians, it is the day that Only God knows when, he will take into Heaven, his chosen few.
Something like a hundred and forty four thousand believers.
That leaves out  a few million Newt Gingrich's and sinners like me..
According to my very fucked up memory of the doings of the Catholic church, you can be forgiven for every mortal sin ever described by either going to confession or getting your last rights given to you you by a priest just before you die. They also aren't shy about twisting your arm for a few bucks.

Seeings how I wasn't Baptized until I was a ten year old, I am holding out for the last minute. I know damn good and well I am going to be broke anyway.
Twenty thousand Hail Mary's, really? I have been a very naughty boy. I haven't been to Confession in over forty years, something about the separation between church and state, I plead the fifth.
 Just fer shits and grins, I was actually an Altar Boy in a Catholic school/church, in the third and fourth grade.
You have heard stories about Catholic Girls, they were mostly chaste, except the ones who weren't. God love ya, ya little honies, it made it worth going to school. I fondly remember getting caught with another guy and six, almost chaste, little girls under the stage in the gym.
The beatings commenced for me and that guy, the girls had their own nightmares to deal with, those Nuns were some mean sonsabitches.

Any way, I hear such that we are about to be entertained by Newt Gingrich and his run for the Presidency. 

I hear he converted to Catholicism.
If there is even one of those Nuns still alive where I went to school at, I am going to do a fund drive to send her to find him and I will hand carve a stick for her to beat him with.

While You Have Your Pen Out...

Most of the Bush 43 administration should be penned in for an invitation.

From here to there and back again every week or two.
Lot's and lot's of driving involved.
I have some long days ahead of me so blogging might get a bit scarce around here.
You can always find something interesting on the old blogroll though, that's what it is for.

Thanks fer stopping by.

One Guy Named George I Actually Like.

So should you.

Torture Apologists Should Go Directly To Jail

They should have already been there for years.

That they aren't speaks volumes to me.

Assholes like John Yoo and Alberto Gonzalez who were directly responsible for wringing  the Constitution and The Geneva Conventions into wore out dish rags should be at the head of the line.

David Addington, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfield and Condoleeza Rice should be next.
One very special cell should be reserved for G.W.Bush, who is ultimately responsible for letting it happen in the first place, should be readied immediately.
Let us not forget Mr. Jose Rodriguez Jr, who was responsible for the destruction of the tapes made while the torture was happening, against orders by Congress to preserve them and also walked away scott free.

Jose Rodriguez Jr. was the leader of counterterrorism for the C.I.A. from 2002-2005 when Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other Al Qaeda leaders were captured. He told Time magazine that the recent events show that President Obama should not have banned so-called enhanced interrogation techniques. (Mr. Rodriguez, you may remember, ordered the destruction of interrogation videos.)

I keep seeing these fiendish bastards in the headlines, defending the indefencible and trying to give credit to Bush for the death of Bin Ladin.
I remember what he said, and what he did back then.
Shit like "Bring It On", " Dead Or Alive", yadda yadda yadda.

Give me a fucking break, will ya?

Even The NYT slammed their positions.

No, these people are criminals and should not even been given the opportunity to continue spouting their lies in nationally syndicated news sources.
They should be having daylight pumped into their cells from a long ways away.

They have repeatedly been discredited and should have no say in what is being done to clean up the World Wide Catastrophe they left behind when they finally got their sick fucking presence thrown out of office and the full extend of that disaster started coming to light.

They should be shunned from the public discourse at the very least.

"US Personell Involved",

The talking heads  on tee vee have had a collective orgasm and are currently trying to make  GW a fucking hero.

Anyway, this chapter of American History is over.


Bonus round, My sister in law, what a sweetie, caught this screen grab from Fox Fucking News and sent it to me;


Bonus round, I told my brother that the fucking media was going to blow this up to equate the end of World War two and I will be damned if they didn't do exactly that.

Brian Fucking Williams @ NBC, did exactly that.

Excuse the fuck out of me,  One dead mother fucker is equal to four years of world wide war and hundreds of thousands of human beings being killed in horrific ways?

BTW, Fuck you Cheney, Fuck you Rumsfield and fuck all of you sonsabitches that lied to our faces.
 RIP Pat Tillman and all the other American servicemen and women who have been killed for their lies and Please take away the pain and suffering of the wounded.
 From all sides.
The Collateral damages.
These cocksuckers are guilty of ordering the death and suffering of over a half a million people, because of one guy.

Never, ever, forget that.
