You Lie Down With Dogs, You Get Up With Fleas

Ft. Sumter: No Federal Right To Occupy having neither been completed not garrisoned according to the contract, either within the three years specified time, or,  for that matter, by 1861, Major Anderson occupied a piece of property that the United States had not the vestige of a right to occupy, and which was under the ownership, jurisdiction, and sovereignty of the State of South Carolina exclusively.

Sometime back in the early sixties—climaxed in 1964 with Barry Goldwater’s efforts—the South with its conservative measure, almost En Masse wanted (and needed) a place to go other than the old Democrat bastion of “Solid South.”

The SS political vector had been in unofficial direction and vogue since the dastardly and corrupt destruction and “reconstruction” of the South; post-War-Between-the-States (the uncivil war). It was a result of the phony Republican party which had never had anything in mind in its creation but a national government to replace the (how ironic) republican one. And most of all, high tariffs were paid by the South for internal improvements in the North. After beginning a war and ravaging the South for its comparable 1776 secession movements, the Republican party, and its political narcissists, bankers and railroad tycoon-thieves kept its boot on the neck of the South. (Yes, the Yankees started the war as they attempted to occupy a Southern fort—Sumpter. It was South Carolina’s fort, not the Union’s.)

As Texas deep freeze subsides, some households now face electricity bills as high as $10,000

 “The last thing an awful lot of people need right now is a higher electric bill — and that’s unfortunately something a lot of people will get stuck with."

As the Texas power grid collapsed under a historic winter storm, Jose Del Rio of Haltom City, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, saw the electricity bill on a vacant two-bedroom home he is trying to sell slowly creep up over the past two weeks. Typically, the bill is around $125 to $150 a month, he said. But his account has already been charged about $630 this month — and he still owes another $2,600.

“If worse comes to worst, I have the ability to put it on a credit card or figure something out," Del Rio said. ”There is no one living in that house. All the lights are off. But I have the air at 60 because I don’t want the pipes to freeze.”

When he contacted Griddy, his electric company, they advised him to switch providers, Del Rio said.

Nearly three-quarters of Republican voters believe the GOP should be “more like former President Trump” moving forward, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday indicated.

Debate has continued to rage among Republicans about the direction the party should go in following Trump’s presidency. This week, Trump blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who is among politicians attempting to walk the line between appeasing the pro-Trump GOP base and resuming business as usual in establishment circles.

Democrats’ ‘No Glory For Hate Act’ Seeks To Ban Trump Namesake, Restrict Burial

 Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., speaks as members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus hold a news conference to speak out against the House Republican budget and its impact on the Latino community on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.


 ‘They Don’t Love This Country’: Congresswoman Linda Sanchez

 (Represents Little Saigon unfortunately)

This is from 'racist' Sanchez. Remember her comments about Vietnamese and Republicans in the last election? She showed up in Little Saigon once in a Vietnamese Ao Dai and looked like a pig.


Democratic lawmakers introduced a bill last month seeking to ban former President Donald Trump from having federally funded statues, monuments, street names, or even park benches named after him or dedicated to commemorating his presidency. The legislation, dubbed “No Glory for Hate” would also bar Trump from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Democrat Rep. Linda Sanchez of California introduced the bill, which has amassed 13 Democrat co-sponsors.

South Carolina Governor Bans Abortion After Heartbeat Is Detected

McMaster signed a bill called the “South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act,” which prevents abortions if a baby’s heartbeat can be detected.

Most times a baby’s heartbeat can be found at 6 to 8 weeks so the lives that will be saved from this new bill will be countless.

Michigan Ammunition Company Refuses to Sell to Biden Voters

An ammunition company in Michigan is refusing to sell to customers who voted for Joe Biden, according to a recent announcement on its website.

Fenix Ammunition, which began asking customers about their political leanings following the 2020 election, defended its decision on Twitter.

“Are we serious? Yes, we are serious. Joe Biden ran on a campaign built on the most radical gun control platform a major party candidate has ever had, including banning the online sale of ammunition. Essentially, a plan to bankrupt our company,” the company said.

Texas & MSM

Please disregard the MSM; things in Texas are not as bad as they make out.  Been a tough ten days but it's winter. Our winter always comes around February.  There are ALWAYS idiots totally unprepared for cold weather, I don't care where you are.

Yes, power was out.  Yes roads iced up. The nature of the storm made that inevitable.  Freezing sleet fell for half a day, then snow fell on top of that then hard single digit freezes crusted that snow with more ice.  Literally, once in a lifetime storm. Weather service gave plenty of warning, people ignored it.  Our water lines are not as deep as Minnesota or Maine. Our overhead power lines ice up just like Buffalo, NY.  Nothing unusual, except the deep and extended freeze. Minneapolis weather in the sunbelt, so it was unusual.  Some people suffered more than others.  So it is every year.

Texas is like everywhere else. People will piss away money on foolishness and ignore the possibilities of hard times. Lotta bitchers aren't from here, they come expecting sub tropical pleasures and easy living, with no idea of what a Blue Norther means.  It is a truth, that the only thing between Texas and the North Pole is barb wire fence. You won't hear much from Amarillo, they get this stuff every year.  San Antonio and Houston panic at anything. Austin is silly cone valley east.  Damn few responsible adults there.  Stoners and Gothix, mostly.

Back around 1886-87 there was a Great Blizzard, killed millions of beef cattle.  Literally millions.  Froze ém to death standing.  Lot of ém got caught by the then new fences and died in great drifts.   This was our turn.  Kinda fun.

The power companies are for profit enterprises.  There's no economic sense in building here, for Alberta conditions. Bandera is not Bangor . . . so you build to suit our normal conditions, which is hot, and provide for emergency situations when its not.  We're eighty years old, haven't missed a meal, or failed to wash up through the whole show, in our own house. 8' this morning, 6-8" of frozen snow on the ground, and the dogs went out to play in it.  Rowdy loves cold weather.
