From the pages of gapingvoidart:

Put it in overdrive says me. Not much time left on my clock…….


The “free” health care system in Canada is not perfect (my personal experience in March was very good, but didn’t analyze the $$$ – no $$$ are listed / presented / discussed). Laura Rosen Cohen proposes a 25 cent solution:

President Barack Obama Democrats Democrat Democratic Party healthcare health-care health care takeover Canada Newfoundland Labrador Premier Danny Williams

The Indian Industry® is an abysmal mess. How in the world can people not return to their “tribal land” 2 years after a flood? WTF is going on? Get a job you ungrateful leaches:

I heard some crap on the CBC radio station in Vernon interviewing a “professor” who writes books “exposing” the raw deal the Indians have received in North America. So tell me….. if there is no difference why the special treatment?

Zimmerman / Martin verdict is eminent. Before I know what the verdict will be, the following article has summed up the state of culture in which both “boys” were immersed:

Two males, no men. 4 words. Big meaning.

Meanwhile, the odd voice of reason. This (black) man says “Before You Negroes Go Out and Riot…… Remember This….”:

Travon Martin wasn’t a Skittles eating virginal youth. Far from it:

Totally new perspective. How does it sit now?

The Obambi administration has heard the “not guilty” verdict in the Zimmerman / Martin trial. Didn’t take them 2 DAYS to announce an “investigation” of whether the “white Latino” Zimmerman violated someone’s “civil rights”:

And the angels wept. What will it take for the progressive / lefty / liberal cabal to see how corrupt this administration is? Forwarded by Bernie M. (from his network of friends) is the following:


This says it all concerning what we need to know about ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN!

Do you know who this is?
It is Little Trayvon Martin…! At 17 years of age.

Don’t know how much coverage this story has had in your area, but, if it has, here’s a new look at it!

For those of us who thought we were well informed and weren’t…..quite the reality check.
That old adage applies here: “there are two sides to every story.” We don’t always get the truth from the media. One of my favorite rants – the
liberal controlled media, television news, newspapers, magazines, radio; all continue to show 12 year old Trayvon; NOT 17 year old Trayvon.

They continue to show the 5 year old picture BECAUSE it helps to cement in your mind the cute, little, hoodie-wearing youngster who was
stalked by this monster.

In reality “little Trayvon” at the time of his death stood almost 6’2″ tall and weighed 175 muscular pounds. He had numerous run ins with authorities (both at school and local police), had been stopped and almost arrested two days before his death for smacking a bus driver in the face, because the driver refused to let him ride for free. He was released because the driver was told not to press charges by the bus company and to continue on his route.

When “little Trayvon” was suspended at school it was not only because he tried to bring a little marijuana in with him, he was in possession of
wedding rings and other jewelry, watches, etc. that he said he “found” along with a large screwdriver while on the way to school that day. The
jewelry was turned over to the Police by the school.

I am not trying to say this was a good shooting. I am not trying to say this kid deserved to die. I am saying the media in the USA is controlled by liberals who twist and distort what you see and hear in order for you to see things their way.

Not a single paper has printed RECENT photos of this kid, because it would not keep your interest in this case.

Not a single paper will admit that this kid was a marijuana dealer. His friends on Facebook all said he had the “best plants.” Not a single paper will show you any of his recent photos where he shows off a mouthful of gold teeth and all of his tattoos.

Not a single newspaper will tell the news like it really is…and NOT how they want you to think it is.

President King Obama looked at the FIVE year old photo the media chose to show the Nation and said, “If I had a son…he would look like Trayvon.” So from that comment should I assume you did not bother to look for the facts in this shooting or should I assume you want a son who is a 17 year old drug dealing, gold teethed, tattooed thug whose name on one of his Facebook profiles was “Wild Nigga” who ‘finds” jewelry and burglary tools on the way to school?

And as Paul Harvey used to say: And now you know the rest of the story.

A fair and impartial news media in the USA ? One that does not follow the liberal agenda? Is NOT looking to further divide this already fractured Nation?

I didn’t compose this. I’m only passing it on.

Never trust the news media for anything.

Trayvon at 12 years of age.


Victor Davis Hanson enumerates the transgressions of the Obambi gang in this short essay, “Nemesis, After All”:

What will it take? Turning the military against the citizenry? “Nationalizing” more industry / services? What will it take for the sycophants to realize their God is nothing but a community organizer, and not a very good one…….

Need I point out that (percentage wise) blacks are over represented and Asians are under represented? Bell Curve, anyone?

Best Benghazi comment I’ve seen to date –


Detroit gets it’s own segment. I remember traveling to Detroit many years ago. Seemed like an exciting big city. Now its a graveyard of civilization. What happened? Mark Steyn tells all:

More about the “Royal Newfoundland Regiment (Fencibles)” here:

A short quote from the above article –
Elements of the Royal Newfoundlanders soon became involved in action around Detroit, as the Americans attempted to mount an attack on Upper Canada. The detachment under Captain Mockler, serving as seamen aboard the General Hunter and the Queen Charlotte, were brought ashore in August to form a core of regulars hr the militia force attacking Detroit. The Newfoundlanders won a special commendation from General Brock on the fall of Detroit.

Maybe Windsor ON will be a gateway for a new wave of “undocumented Canadians”…… wait…… we have unions too –


The “Religion of Peace” is making it’s displeasure known in Germany. As of this writing (July 14) there have been 3 nights of rioting in Hamburg-Altona:

The Main Stream Media seems neutered when it comes to telling ANY story about Muslim misadventure and criminal activity. What, pray tell, is their agenda? Words from the German police union:

As close to an admission of a failed immigration policy as you will hear from a political body.


Somehow, this article makes sense in “India-speak”:

Predict the wind a day in advance or else……. What a hoot! Can’t wait ’til this baffling political babble is imported to the West…. for wind farms everywhere, your day of reckoning.


The last commercial telegraph has been sent. Samuel Morris can smile – 167 years is a good long run and an amazing run in technology:

I show an excerpt from a Jay Leno show to workshops when discussing technology. Here is the challenge – technology vs training. Text messaging relies heavily on a complex network; texting itself is easy to learn. Morse code is difficult to learn but relies on simple technology – you can use flags, tones, light, smoke signals, whatever. The result is not surprising. Morse code experts can meet or exceed the speed of message transmission despite the difference in technological complexity and ease of learning. Couldn’t find the video on YouTube anymore, so I’ve attached the clip to this note.

I haven’t been close to lightning, let alone been struck by lightning. Here’s an interesting picture –

Ford History Lesson: I am a Ford fan. Are Fords the best? Not by my reckoning. Here is a picture of one of the failings of Ford design (or any other manufacturer) – what happens when the start solenoid doesn’t release? The following photos are of Marcel G.’s starter motor (from a small block V8 in a ’72 Maverick) after the engine started and the solenoid stuck on, the starter motor attained rotational speed it was never designed to withstand. It came apart in a spectacular manner. Good thing the steel field case is very thick material –

This old style wiring won’t allow the engine to be turned off with the key after starting, because the ignition back feeds through the start solenoid circuit – it uses a points / coil / distributor. The start circuit feeds the solenoid AND the coil during engine cranking (to circumvent low voltage to the coil). The thing to do is disconnect the battery as soon as safely possible. On newer Ford wiring harnesses, the solenoid circuit is independent of the ignition circuit, either by diode isolation or computer control.



Matthew Vadum writes a book review and in doing so, reveals the dirty little secrets of the Muslim world:

Matthew does an excellent job. If you invoke “Occam’s Razor” parameters to the argument, the distillation is that the quest for totalitarian domination of other cultures is the bottom line. Tying your tongue and political concepts into Gordian knots doesn’t advance understanding. Understanding is 90% of solving a problem……

The majority of slavery in today’s world is in Muslim countries –




The spectre of Bhopal remains in old minds that were young when it happened in 1984 (George Orwell not withstanding). I was 25 years old, and ready to blame anyone, anything, anywhere other than myself for my situation (which wasn’t bad at all). In later years I read up on the disaster. I couldn’t believe that a corporation would consciously put thousands of people at peril of their lives for a handful of coins. Even later, I read about the extremes the Union Carbide company executives went to in order to help those who suffered. Today I read an article by Peter Cresswell which neatly sums up the elements of the situation which never sat well with me, but I couldn’t put a finger on:

A quote from the article –
“…..There really is no greater force for corruption than an equation that puts together a big corporate desperate to escape justice, and a politician in pursuit of power and campaign funds. As PJ O’Rourke once observed, “when buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first thing to be bought and sold are legislators”—some of whom, like Al Gore, take that relationship with them even when they retire from the legislature.
Just one reason that a complete separation of state and economics is called for, lest the poisoners and the parasites make common cause. As they have done all too frequently.”
My (and Joe Mekanic’s) sentiment precisely. Keep the government out of business. Keep the business out of government. Let capitalists (not corporations) find a way.

Speaking of George Orwell, Amazon secretly invoked the “Indian giver” clause – they removed the novel “1984” from countless Kindle subscriber’s devices. They DID refund $$$, but that is not the issue. Read more:

“Big Brother” takes many forms. An electronic shift shaper. The Navajo Nation® will be proud.

Vernon weather has been fantastic this week. I actually broke a sweat on Saturday. Had to wear long pants and a shirt to do it, but sweat I did. Cold beer is the antidote –
