Libertarian Purity Meme

Saw this test at SnarkyBytes first. 

I got a 72, which falls square in the middle of “51-90 points: You are a medium-core libertarian, probably self-consciously so. Your friends probably encourage you to quit talking about your views so much.”

Yeah… yeah…

Vampire Sighting in My Town!

Here’s something that you don’t hear every day:

Western Slope woman blames vampire for car crash

Good grief.  You know that if there was a real vampire she wouldn’t be alive to talk about this.  Which leaves only two possibilities: 1) She’s been watching too many pop-crap movies, or 2) She isn’t alive and I need to get Larry Correia over here, fast.

Yet another reason why I need a shotgun.

And to any Twightards out there:  the only thing a vampire is good for is as a wooden stake holder.

It’s the Onion.  I’m taking this just as seriously as they are.

Bones Were Poking Out His Leg

This is about a half mile from where I was on Saturday, helping build a Quonset for our neighbors:

Florida man, 63, faces charges after being shot in burglary attempt

He tried to break into a house, the homeowner shot his legs out from under him.  According to the radio, “bones were poking out of his legs.”  Now he gets to think long and hard about what he did while waiting in the hospital.  Too bad the homeowner wasn’t aiming a little higher; JayG could add one to his Dead Goblin Count.

I think there are a few more things that can be taken away from this.  1: Just because you are living up in the hill somewhere doesn’t mean that you are safe from brigands. 2: Just because they look old doesn’t mean that they are good people. 3: I need to get me a shotgun!

All the News that’s Fit to Print

Here’s an attention-grabbing paragraph:

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an investigation into the U.S. Census Bureau office in Grand Junction, which earlier this year was inundated by fumes from a marijuana-growing operation in the same building.

 I guess they don’t call us “Happy Valley” for no reason…

Sunset/Sunrise

We had the coolest sunset last night:

Who knew it would usher in such a momentous day (today)?  We had the Supreme Court, Old KKKers, and Kagan, all in one day.  I can’t say that we’re going forwards, exactly, but we might be going sideways.

I guess we’ll see what happens tomorrow!

KAAAAAAAAAAGAN!!!!

While solving the world’s problems with a friend, we decided that Kagan probably wouldn’t be our first choice for the Supreme Court. The main point of contention was the fact that SHE’S NOT A JUDGE! If the government was a sport, the Supreme Court is the Umpire, and it’s like she hasn’t even played the game before. Oh, sure, she might know the rules, and maybe even is qualified to ump for a different game… but that doesn’t mean she would be a good choice.

I hope she get absolutely grilled during the questioning, at least. But they’re probably just going to ask her if she’s a lesbian…

Supreme Court

5-4, yo. w00t. I’m sure you can find someone else’s commentary that is much more in depth and etc. But I didn’t want it to sneak past me.

But wait, there’s more: Reading the comments in that article reassert my beliefs that the United States is no longer a unified country, culturally, at least.

Care Bears: They’re Back, and Meaner than Ever!

I don’t know how you manipulate the trigger with those mittens on–maybe they’re like Strongbad?

Worked All Day

Helped our neighbors (who are building a new house on 40 acres in the canyons between Grand Junction and Gateway) finish up a Quonset-hut-type building today. We worked for 12 hours straight. I’m sunburnt and tired, and maybe will put up pictures later. Now, to bed.

I wish I could go…

The most politically incorrect event of the year,” and I’m going to be in Montana that week. Of all the rotten luck.

Oh well, it was in Denver, anyway.
