    Ain’t it the truth.

      To paraphrase Animal Farm, all Americans are equal but some Americans are more equal than others…

        Or remember the song that ends ” eat the bacon”

      • August 15, 2016 at 11:48 pm

        In its own way, I think Animal Farm is more terrifying than 1984.

        But the movie was a lousy adaptation of the book, especially the ending

    Skye still doesn’t have a clue. With all the money in the world at her fingertips (shudder. . . .. ), she still wouldn’t have a clue on buying a clue.

    damn walls better be pretty thick; .50BMG APIT will cut right through filled concrete blocks, heh, heh.

  • August 15, 2016 at 11:22 pm

    In my fondest hopes and dreams, their compound walls that keep the riff raff (us) out, will become prison walls that keep the riff raff (them) in.

    And their diversity will be in there with them.


    • August 16, 2016 at 12:28 am

      Have to put a cage over to prevent helicopter rescue attempts.

      Add a moat filled with piranha in case they have their ‘help’ scale the walls….

    • August 16, 2016 at 6:33 am

      The big problem that they face is that when chaos hits, their servants will be inside the walls with them, with their families on the outside. And all of those wonderful supplies right there, which could feed their families for a while… If the owners weren’t around to interfere.
      You know, the “little people” with gardening tools… kitchen implements… guns. Who prepare their food…

      • August 16, 2016 at 10:18 am

        Yep. Their “diversity”…the servants that were bought and paid with the wages of graft and government theft, will be in there with them.

        And without the largesse to keep them mollified the only thing they’ll be helping is themselves, with the elite ones left to fend for themselves, and since they don’t know how they should last about five minutes. Like I said, poetic.

        And the “little people” with their tools will be left to fend for themselves too, to again build a self-sufficient and self-sustaining Republic.

        Lord, let my dream come true.

    Pamela, from yesterday: Susan as in the granddaughter of Death from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. And finish his rounds as in she needs to go pick up the recently-deceased (this sort of thing has happened before in the books – causes all kinds of logistical problems).

    • August 16, 2016 at 8:05 am

      H_B- Never read the Discworld series. Something for the list.
      Fluffy bunnies are cool. Thank you

    Oh, no, we cannot have the peasantry intruding into the spaces set aside for the elites, now, can we?
    Wasn’t it Sleazy Harry that complained about the odor given off by the crowds touring His halls of Congress?

    • August 16, 2016 at 6:58 am

      Yes, and it was Hillary (in 1993) who demanded that Penn’a Ave. be closed to motor traffic and made a pedestrian mall.

      Her logic? “Every other ruler has a mall in front of their residence and I want mine!”

      Her “entitlement” is at the heart of everything she does. Along with her intense hatred of the “unenlightened”.

    Why Skye shame on you! You automatically assumed the riffraff were the Hispanic men on the street. Really.

    Now are they checking out the truck or the cab’s occupants?

      “Now are they checking out the truck or the cab’s occupants?”

      Bit of both I expect.

      • August 16, 2016 at 11:26 am

        I trust a man whose interests lay in restored old trucks and cars than the person(s) driving it. Hmm, Sam will have tools stashed just in case.

        Wonder how many body bags Tucker keeps on hand?

  • August 16, 2016 at 8:22 am

    I live in one of the most conservative counties in Texas, and even WE are being overrun with illegals. I no longer believe that old “11 Million illegals” number. If it is this bad here where I live, then I suspect the number of illegals in the USA is closer to 30-40 million. I became convinced of this when I read somewhere that New Jersey has a problem with illegals. Wait… New Jersey???

    • August 16, 2016 at 7:31 pm

      That’s why you’re being overrun. You don’t think Liberals want illegals in their own neighborhoods, do you?

  • August 16, 2016 at 8:50 am

    “Diverse” ? Since when has diversity meant an almost overwhelming number of one group? Or does “diverse” in lib-speak mean “Wow, there’s a lot of them here!”

    • August 16, 2016 at 9:50 am

      I was thing along the same lines.
      On the ranch, you have Caucasian, Black, Irish/Japanese, Jewish (genetic, not religion, in this case), whatever Anatoly’s background might be, and mixes of many of those. But NO, that’s not ‘DIVERSE’

      • August 16, 2016 at 7:32 pm

        Anatoly is Russian.

    • August 16, 2016 at 6:14 pm

      “Diversity” is liberal dog whistle for “non-white.”

    Jose can you see the screwing your getting by the dawns early light? You swapped economic slavery in your own country for economic slavery in a foreign one.


  • August 16, 2016 at 11:58 am

    Funny—-I don’t feel particularly raffish.

  • August 16, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    “Elites hate Ameri(k)ans.”

    True words. Have you noticed how there are laws against betraying the government, but not the amerikan people?

    • August 16, 2016 at 2:11 pm

      And note that the Oath of Office (required of all officers of the gov’t both Federal and State) clearly states “defend and support the Constitution” NOT a President or a political group/’ism.

      OT – I lost my internet at the homestead (long story) so my attendance will be spotty. In case you wondered.

      • August 16, 2016 at 3:07 pm

        capn, while I’m pretty Luddie at heart (as I suspect many here are), the info exchange that the intertubes is made me a sellout to some degree (as I know many here are or we wouldn’t, you know, be here).

        And I drank a little deeper of the poison koolaid when wifey and I went with iphones. That is due mostly to three features; (1) voice texting my young’uns which is about the only way they communicate and my fatass fingers can’t/won’t do it manually, (2) the voice GPS is extremely accurate and up to date which my car-based and portable units are not, and (3) the wi-fi hotspot feature rivals home-based in speed and dependability and allows me to surf with the laptop when out in the wilds and/or when the home-based service is out.

        Worth considering as an alternative if you can get past the (justifiable) Big Brother paranoia.

    Texas border towns have been mostly Hispanic for a LONG time.
