One of the things I have noticed on social media

 is the woman's march the day after Trump got inaugurated.

The women left the place in a pig sty. Here's a picture. What a disgusting mess. 


Here's a picture of the mess the TEA party left behind a few years ago.




One of the things I have heard often from janitors is the way woman leave the so-called ladies room. For what it is worth, I have had a number of women comment on the subject saying that a lot of women are a bunch of pigs.

I think that a lot of it is that the people that leave a mess behind for someone else to clean up are of the same mentality that government is there to take care of them.

It is not just a man/woman thing, but some of it is a conservative/liberal thing. Conservatives take care of themselves, liberals expect someone else to take care of them.

One of the things I rememer about Woodstock back in '69 was the amount of trash the people attending left behind.

I will give credit to the small handful that stayed behind. Incidentally, the mess here was created by my generation.

Note that there are generally a small handful of people that did stay behind. I read that it took them over two weeks to clean that pig sty up.

FWIW the following summer I spent a couple of weeks at a couple of rock festivals working behind the scenes as part of the medic contingent. Much of what I dealt with was a boatload of bad LSD trips. I saw every sunrise and sunset and slept a coupleof daylight hours per day.

To my credit I cleaned up after myself and my pack contained pretty much all of my trash. Still, the Powder Ridge ski slope and Mosport Raceway were total dumps when the party was over.

One of the things that always seems to happen at my house when I invite people over is that I never have a whole lot to clean up after. It never fails. Generally all I have to do is empty the dish washer the following morning, if that.

Incidentally, several years ago I wandered around DC on foot with a day pack full of a couple day's rations. When I left everything I brought with me I brought out and disposed of later on. I smoked at the time and remember emptying a pocketful of cigarette butts into a trash can at a rest stop.

An open letter to General Mattis.



Sir,

I am getting a little long in the tooth to be going out on combat patrols. The back aches a bit in the morning. Old age has set in and I now use wire cutters to cut my toenails. You are no spring chicken, either so you likely know the drill.

A couple of years ago I made a mistake that makes me ineligible for military service. I got my birthday back and got old overnight.

Back in the day I got into some non-trouble with a pissed off major. I had done nothing wrong but I got reported anyway. My First Sergeant, a man short on formal schooling but having immense native wisdom decided the way to handle the situation was to punish me and report I had been punished.

He took away my birthday.

That left me in the odd situation where I was going to remain 23 years old forever.

As time passed and everyone else around me aged I realized I would never become eligible for any retirement as nobody is going to pay retirement benefits to a 23 year old man.

I called my old army unit and argued with the quite amused First Sergeant for about 45 minutes until he finally gave in and gave me my birthday back.

Right now I wish I had not done this because I am now too old to serve under you.

For the record, if you can use my services feel free to ask. I will drop what I am doing and dig out my old uniform. Incidentally it still fits.

Actually I may be more useful then you think. As I got older I find I only think about sex 98% of the time. This give me twice as much time to think about the mission as the younger guys have.

Secondly, I am not as impulsive as a younger man. I am far more likely to remember that the most important six inches on the battlefield is between my ears. I am far more apt to stop and think before I act.

I am also a lot less likely to cause disciplinary problems because although I occasionally imbibe, I have years of experience on how to without causing any trouble. Perhaps I could use this to set an example to the younger guys that could use a little adult supervision.

While I am probably too old to go on combat patrol, I still shoot CMP matches regularly. I know my way around a service rifle. I can probably be useful fixing things or even simply keeping the line in front of the whorehouse straight and orderly.

It would be quite an honor to go back into uniform and serve under you.

Your for the asking,
Piccolo.

The racism of low expectations.



One of the things that a lot of people seem to miss is that liberals have a very overlooked, demeaning and underhanded form of racism. It's called lower expectations.

It is an insult to anyone of any race, creed, color or whatever that is on the receiving end of it. On the other hand, many people that actuallly are on the receiving end of it often do not realize it.

A classic example of ths is government set-asides for various things like contracts that are 'set aside' for minority owned companies.

These set asides are often explained as 'leveling the playing field' and in my opinion are quite an insult to the minority community. This also enters the field of hiring. Government often hires based on minority status instead of competence and merit.

It is simply saying that minorities are not as capable as everyone else so they need a little extra help along the way so they can overcome their inherent inabilities.

Colleges do this with admission policies. They have for years. Actually many schools penalize Asians because they often have a higher academic success rate. Asians often have to score higher than blacks and whites.

It is an insult and a serious form of racism. It is telling minorities that less is expected of them.

This also leads to discrediting minorities that are successful in their own right. 

The simple solution is to really level the playing field and hold everyone regardless of race, creed, color, sex, or whatever to the same standard of excellence.

Of course, in this day and age I will be labeled as a racist for saying this but I have been called a lot of things so I'm not too worried about it.

Still, there are two things that will overcome racism. Holding everyone to the same standard is one.

The other isn't going to be as easy to overcome. I won't cover it here except to say that while there is money to be made on racism people like Al Sharpton and David Duke will continue to profit and the practice will continue.

Inauguration Day.



I am posting this at approximately 0100 today, Inauguration day. Hopefully everything goes through all right. 

Obama will be gone, and Trump will be POTUS barring any treachery and the makings of a civil war.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

One of the things I am watching is that Trump is fighting back at the mainstream media and I love it.

A lot of the big guns like CNN act like they have a God-given right to come and go in the White House and it looks like the new sheriff in town is going to bring them up short.

I am thinking of issuing myself a press pass declaring me to be the Editor-in-Cief of Piccolo's Hash and applying for the credentials to cover the WHite House.

Maybe President Trump will decide that Piccolo's Hash is a bona-fide honest outlet and decide that he is worthy of entry into the White House.

While I doubt that this is going to happen, it would be hilarious to find out that I was offered the slot normally held by CNN.

If I were offered the slot I would make it a point not to wear my bridgework and to be sure to smell like bourbon when I pass the CNN reporter just to add to his disgust and humiliation.

I can see the press secretary really irking the living daylights out of the CNN reporter by sticking it to him with the old liberal line.

"He doesn't have a media conglomerate behind him so we're 'Just going to level the playing field.' "

The look of outrage would be a true sight to behold.

If by some flaky chance, anyone can pass this post on to the White House press secretary, feel free to. I would gladly take a trip to Washington DC to help President Trump embarrass the fake news people.
*********************
I was reading a forum where the media said they were going to tell Trump who was boss.
Someone else pointed out that he could in fact keep the people in touch with what he is doing with the various forms of social media out there.
I have read that Trump's twitter acount is more popular than ABC, CSNBC, FOX and CNN combined. Someone else suggested that Twitter close his account.

Enter HAM RADIO! 

Ham radio gets through where nothing else can.

I suppose it Trump went on the air there would be a demand for shortwave receivers which would mean more jobs and more win.

It would also leave all the media stammering and stuttering.

read where they found guns and stashed ammunition in the general

Washington DC area.

I am getting pretty sick and tired of the attitude of the left.

Over the past 24 years I have tolerated 16 years of Clinton and Obama. To those on the left shut the hell up and take your medicine.

I am sick and tired of the threats of violence coming from the left. 

If these people want a civil war then they are on the right track because that is how you start a civil war. A lot of you on the left have big mouths and few of you have strong stomachs. You do not have a clue as to what you are asking to get into.

I see where the Secret Service has made a few arrests and I wish they would make more and really slam the people hard as an example to others.

Today is the last day of the Obama presidency.

Thank God for small miracles.

It is Oh-Dark thirty and I am up.

My sleep pattern is getting sloshed around and it sucks.

I have a lot to do tonight so I may/may not finish this post.

I think  mentioned picking up a tablet, a Kindle. I did that because there are a boatload of free books I can read. Besides it's a pretty goof WiFi tablet and I can also stream movies when I am at home.

If I didn't need a full sized keyboard to write on I'd chuck most of my laptops. 

My wife does not write very much, she answers emails and such. She gets by very nicely with a flip phone and a tablet she has a data program with that is supplied by one of the cell companies for pretty short money.


If they made a bigger blue tooth keyboard I'd likely go that route.
