Hard to let ‘‘em grow up Zed, but in this case it’s better she doesn’t know who finally had Overwatch duty.
You can NEVER tell her you killed to keep her safe… the Mark of Caine is real, even if he was a cockroach and desperately needed killing.. Duty.
Is “He needed killing” still a valid defense in Texas?
Technically, yes, you *are* still allowed to try to make the argument that “the SOB *needed* killin’!” here — but I’m not sure when was the last time that anyone actually *tried* it, or successfully convinced the judge and jury to buy it…
According to my senior felony prosecutor daughter working out of Huntsville, TX, it depends.
Sometimes the prosecution makes that case when they prove motive. An honest prosecutor lays out the facts and lets the jury decide. An evil one tries to limit what the jury learns to keep a balance between the jury seeing that the accused had a reason to kill and seeing that he had a _good_ reason.
The paws…. the paws take us to faraway places.
A little surprising, considering her background, to hear her needing to be “protected”; is she just stroking Jack’s ego along with his almost-a-manhood? Trying to make Daddy feel better?
Because she does know how to use her own tools, of both the clank-clank and Bang-Bang varieties…and she knows because Dad has taught her that he won’t always be there to protect his little girl, and she knows the time may come when she must exterminate a roach herself…because Dad taught her that too.
This election is as corrupt as 2020. Every delayed counting ALWAYS favors the Democrat. They just called Arizona for Kelly in the Senate. Meanwhile, Nevada is quickly stacking votes against Laxalt. If that goes down, who needs Georgia? And to top it off, we are watching seat after seat go for the Democrats in the Congressional districts that are left. Can we say “Coup”. We are feeling quite deluded that our votes mean anything anymore.
I’m in a relatively good place right now. My county re-elected our conservative, constitutional sheriff, state assemblymen and senator, US senator (Ron Johnson) and flipped a congressional seat that had been solid blue for 26 years by bringing in Derrick Van Orden. A solid republican state legislature should hold governor pencil neck in check. The next fight will be to keep activist judges from getting on the state supreme court.
And it’s increasingly looking like they did it to Bolsonaro and the Brazilians, too. When the media is lightning quick to “certify” a socialist “victory” while pointing their verbals guns in dissenters faces, you know something seriously sinister is going on.
National ‘elections’ are a mug’s game-but still vote to make the cheaters have to spend their money
So… is that Kiko gracing the white lens-polisher?
Yes, we are all getting older. But some of us are still in good shape and can still run for POTUS. The new wave of TDS running through the GOP is most suspicious and seems intimately linked with pre-planned election fraud denial.

I’m having trouble distinguishing that piece and that writer from all the other “Never DeSantis” types and the Trump apologists, and more critically the “let’s fix the elections” dreamers who push that in one breath and say defeatedly that there will never be another fair election or conservative president (they said republican but I wouldn’t put it past the D&R consortium to run one of their own to placate the stupids in the stupid party.
No. You can take much of what was said there to reinforce what we all know in our hearts is true…the old republic is dead and those that killed it will not stop until we are all dead too.
And the only way to avoid all of that is with a system and a New Republic of our own, one where The Donald is the Wise Father figure and muse, the firebrand DeSantis leads charge against any infiltrators, any and all who identify as Constitutional Americans, our own judicial process, and last but not least the HALF of active duty military who hate what has become of it and would FIGHT to rebuild it.
We’ve known it for some time now. Call it secession, or separation, or just call it what it will be…an autonomous, free, freestanding, independent, self-governed, self-ruling, separate, SOVEREIGN REPUBLIC, but what is needed, what is absolutely critical…
The Constitutional Republic of America, the CRA.
Yes it’s been done before but it couldn’t hold…ill-prepared, ill-equipped, and absolutely powerless in the battle for public opinion against the fully-owned media and most of the corporate money which was so successful in twisting, lying, defining, and pushing the false narrative to justify the all-out genocidal war against what they claimed was its “own” people but was of course really a declared and defacto war against an independent nation. The destruction of the Confederate States of America and the historical revision of the facts surrounding it, as taught for over a century in our schools, was so successful that most citizens even on the conservative side believe the false historical narrative. Sound familiar? It worked for them once, and they have no reason to believe it won’t continue to work as we do seem always willing to just shut up and accept the narrative and go along to get along.
The difference this time, a difference that terrifies them and gives them pause against enacting their full final frontal assault against us, is right there in the name of the CRA, “Constitutional” whereby we use the First Amendment to define and state our case, and the Second Amendment to enforce it. Yes, it means war. Yes, we can win it. But only if we fight it. CRA Now!
My family doesn’t know what I have done and continue to do for their safety. If I do my job well, they never will. Provide, protect and preside is every fathers duty.
Thanks for the peek inside the World of Muir…
Was going to say ‘off topic’, but maybe it isn’t ~
Not OT at all, just another attack to silence any opposition or factual information, creating an envirionment of fear and silence by attrition…they will be (already are) going after Musk and the thing they fear most; the dissemination of the truth and the real opinions of real Americans.
And your other comment as to stupid? Read Halley’s link to PJ Media (and the unfortunately wrong advice of the writer) just above, and my comments in reference to it.
A few of points:
1) Nice Man Cave/Office.
2) Needs more guns and kitties.
3) Sorry about not contributing this year, still looking for engineering work.
4) The solution to our problem is actually prosecuting the criminals once evidence is discovered. This might not require a courthouse but only a tree with stout limbs and a jury of their peers.
5) BCE still needs assistance to get the GranBebe. He took y’alls advice to get a pitbull female lawyer but the family court system is designed to jack families around so lawfare is the order of the day.
6) Keep on Keeping on!
That’s the shipper’s office and cats, not mine.
Speaking of OT but not really, it’s been a little dusty around here this morning too. We lost one of our cats overnight (we usually have three; 16 year old Felix left us a few months ago so we were down to two…now one). Sky (no, not Skye) was only about 12 and a totally healthy and a big boy, an all-white shorthair, very gentle, and very playful. Wife got up in the middle of the night and he was laying on the rug beside her bed as usual. She spoke to him, went to the bathroom, and went to caress him when she was climbing back into bed…and realized he was gone. He was normal at bedtime and she heard no crying or commotion, and there was no sign of injury. Just went to sleep and stayed asleep I guess, about the best that any of us can hope for when the time comes to go Home.
RIP Sky, I just laid him to rest in the landscape mound/pet cemetery in the side yard along with a few others of the heart-hurting four legged crew that is no longer with us. So we are down to one kittie, a big Red Maine Coon that we rescued from a lady who had to go into a nursing home; what an all-around wonderful cat she is, very gentle and aloof; she is the boss of the chihuahuas, and at only 10 yo now, hopefully quite a few years to go.
She and the old Dachshund just quietly tolerate each other; Ozzy ignores everything and everybody but is stuck like glue to me, laying up under me right now on the patio sofa… he is healthy too to be 17, but of course on borrowed time, that is going to be rough when he has to leave, and that of course is the hardest part about household critters. 🙁
Yeah, remember that what-if exercise we ran a while back that had Braindead resigning and Kumala installing a veep then resigning herself? We discussed The Beast (if it is still actually alive), or maybe even Moochelle in that scenario. But here’s their plan to go full-on Commiefornistan for the whole nation…
Seems way too White, and way too ostensibly male for their tastes, but there you have it, we might as well go out in a blaze of…something.
Shit, wrong link, although both do have similar bankrupting results…but here’s your Gold (State) Boy, ready to run the Big Show…
Yah but… DeSantis is now on the GOPe machine, so that is both sides of the same coin. So then the machine people will be happy and the rest of us can take a shot at the ‘rolling donut’. Besides, the nasties will rage against DeSantis as badly as they do against President Trump. Or any GOP candidate. They will also hate any female GOP as if She was President Trump in spite of them being ‘all in’ for wyhmn.
this seems spot on https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/11/what_really_happened_in_the_midterms_and_why.html
Will be interesting on tuesday – the announcement of a third party would be the most welcome words…
Except the GOP has a number of DemonRats that Will Not vote with the Repugs when it comes to stopping Dem proposals. We Lose!
Note Manchin talked big until he got what he wanted and then sold us and his coal state down the proverbial creek. One or two Repugs will do the exact same thing.
DT ain’t the only one with a big announcement Tuesday…
And theirs seems to be aimed straight at his.
Never Trumpers never really changed their minds, they just held off the attack until they had all the D’s and all the R’s arrayed against him.
And BTW, DJT *is* a third party, the MAGA party. *Time now to make it real.
But that’s not enough. As outlined above, a separation of these disunited states is necessary, critical, and needs to happen sooner than later while we still have the ability to do it.
this may amuse you. vicious sarcasm!
You may need a week’s worth before deciding, but it’s pretty funny sarcastic comment on the culture wars.
Put the beer down if the electronics are not spill proof.
@kirk, maybe you cleared it with CM but as for myself I come here for the “culture” of the DBD world, its environs, its inhabitants, and its audience. Please refrain from using it as a platform for linking other commercial work.
It’s fxxxin’ magic I tell ya ~
Ghosts are voting… and we all know the dead vote Dem…
Say it ain’t so, bro ~
I had linked to that crypto crash earlier but did not make the Dim connection…
So, all these billions that “disappeared” are safe in their accounts?
And, contrary to the statement that the paste eater burned his own company and his own ass, there was no actual company anyway and you can bet that with all that disappearing dough he no doubt took care of his own ass while taking care of all the other thieves and grifters in gov.
Never Trumpers never really changed their minds, they just went along as long as it benefitted them, and this round they held off on the attack until they had all the D’s and all the R’s arrayed against him.
