The big bad wolf and the skinny assed bears.

   So, as I was perusing my favorite news soiurce for all things non-newsworthy (yahoo), I found this little tidbit about wolves making the bears fat in Yellowstone.  First, I thought about some wolf in the forest, cooking Papa Bear some biscuits and gravy, and pork chops and all that other good stuff.  Then, I figured some goober at yahoo had screwed up the headline yet again, so I proceeded to investigate.

   As it turns out, there is a logical flow for the reasoning behind wolves making bears fat.  Stick with this, cuz its really pretty cool.  First off, we start with elk.  Now I know that elk weren't mentioned in the headline, but "bear" with me.  When wolves were taken out of Yellowstone back in the 20's, the elk population lost a primary predator.  Erego, said Elk population exploded like a hellfire on a jihadi.  Now, the elk gotta eat, and they like them some berrys and shrubs and things all good vegans eat.  This just happens to be the same produce that the bears utilize to store fat up for winter.  Now you follow?  Lots of elk=no berries=skinny bears.

   Fast forward to 1996, and the reintroduction of the wolf into Yellowstone.  The pack grows, and they do what wolves normally do and thin out the elk herd a bit.  Less elk means more berries, and more berries means fatter bears.  In addition, other things that the elk normally have been stuffing themselves on are coming back in abundance, and Yellowstone seems to be thriving.

Imagine that; God's ecosystem working better than the man made one.  Whoda thunk it?

   Now, I know that humans are on this planet, and there has to be some intervention by man to make our place on this big rock, so if a wolf is attacking a herd of cattle, he/she/it should be introduced to the business end of a 7mm pronto.  I also understand that a lot of the reason the planet is as jacked up as it is is because the econo-weenies take shit way too far.  Time to start looking for that balance.

PS.  I stole this from Angel, I think, but it fits my story so there.

Bam, just like that, the weekend's over!

Man my weekend flew by.  I got a lot done, and a lot more to take care of in the next day or two.  I know you guys don't know this yet, but one of my "hobbies" includes being an Assistant H.S. football coach.  Two a days start here next Monday, and I am so stoked about the season starting I can't wait.  Anyhow, here's my nine new little amigos and amigas that made my weekend fly by.  All registered Siberians with ass kicking pedigrees.  Later.

I Fucking Told You

   Yesterday, I left this comment over on the Vulgar Curmudgeon, in response to his post about the NSA lobbying the House for votes on their SuperSpyonUS program.

"I don't believe that anyone in the government has any real interest in stopping this shit. I can't belive that anyone actually has the balls to say "if you aint done nothing wrong, you got nothing to hide". Their logic is ass-backward. It is because I have done nothing wrong that the government has no right to be spying on me!"

     Well, here it is, voted down 205 to 217.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/attempt-to-curb-nsa-surveillance-defeated-in-house-2013-07-25?siteid=yhoof2

   Notice the vote against by the illustrious Speaker.

Behind Door #3, the Junior Senator from Texas

   I just took a look at my favorite source for "news", yahoo of course.  I read the following story almost immediately after reading about how Pantsuits is destroying Choo Choo in make believe fairy dust polls.  It talks a little about why the GOP should take a look at Ted Cruz for Prez next go round.


   I know Ted aint perfect, but his flaws seem to be less ridiculously overwhelming than the other options.  In fact, from what I have seen of him, I like him.  I really like the fact that he took time out of his busy schedule to lay a verbal beatdown on Harry Reid.  I could watch this video over and over, because the laughs I get are quite simply adding years to my life.  I think Cruz needs to put stuff out like this every day.


   So, as of today, I'm backing Cruz for Prez, until Ronnie comes back from the grave.

Benghazi, NSA, IRS, F and F....oooh look, a royal baby

   The other day I read a post by a sort of friend of mine on facebook, lambasting everyone that was pissed about the Rolling Stones cover of the terroristic POS.  My friend was greatly indignant, and basically told everybody that if they didn't like it, don't buy it, but shut the fuck up already.  Then, yesterday she types out about a half page novella, congratulaing the royal couple on their new addition to the family, and in essence, oohs and aaahhs about the precious little soon to be figurehead.  Um, scuse me, but we live in Nooo Way Voh Mek-see-koh.

   What this is is simply a microcosm of exactly what is wrong with this country right now.  There are issues...serious issues, that Joe and Jane citizen could give a shit about, but the next little shiny butterfly that passes by gets their undivided attention.  Here is a person that has the balls to lecture others about being offended by something that, in her words, makes absolutely no difference in anybody's life, and yet she spends an equal or greater amount of time singing the praises of a new born babe in a country far away that is the future heir of a title that means absolutely nothing.

   I wonder how the people impacted by the Boston bombing feel about the new little princeling?

NSA replaces Rockwell. I always feel like, somebody's watchin meeeeeeeeeee.

   The more of my posts you read, the more you will come to realize exactly how much I love yahoo.  Seriously, if it weren't for yahoo, half of the stupid shit I make fun of would disappear from the interwebs.  I scour yahoo daily, because I know, deep in my heart of hearts, if I want something amazingly stoopid (with two O's), yahoo will have it.

   With that being said, I have found today's gem, although it actually led me to a cohesive thought instead of the mind numbing blather normally associated with yahoo.  I just read a story about how every day people are taking another look at exactly what they do on the internet, specifically when it comes to social media.

   I have to admit that for the longest time, I refused to have anything to do with social media, like facebook, because I was firmly convinced that the government was spying on us.  Guess I get the last laugh on that one.  After a time though, I started using facebook as a free means of advertisement for my business.   I have been, for quite some, an avid reader of conservative blogs, but I didn't leave  a lot of comments, again because of the fear of government spying.  Now here I am.

   Why the sudden change?  I have the exact opposite view as the people that I just read about.  A view that is shared, I believe, by pretty much every other blogger out there, regardless of which side of the fence they are on.  Instead of letting the government push us into hiding, we need to let them know that we will not be cowed.  Instead of being afraid that the government MIGHT spy on me because of who I friend on facebook, I will proudly stand next to the III percent, because I KNOW the government is going to spy regardless.

   In other words, you are being watched.  You are being tracked.  It doesn't make a tinkers damn if you follow the herd of sheeple or not, you are still being spied upon, and the Super Secret court just approved NSA to continue, even in the face of the enormous public outcry.  Might as well show your spine and stand against them.  If you don't now, when?

   A Denver District Court Judge has shot down (no pun intended) State Senate President John Morse' and State Senator Angela Giron's claim of an improper recall petition, opening the door for the recall elections on September 10.  Morse (Colorado Springs) and Giron (Pueblo) both supported the gun control measures that recently passed, much to the apparent chagrin of their constituents.  Both gun grabbing bottom feeders have said they will not appeal.

   Come on Coloradoanitians, you have the opportunity right in front of you to kick their sorry asses out of power and stand up for 2A.  Time to put a couple of violators of the Constitution on the unemployment line.

WTF? Season is open already?

   Just yesterday I posted about Drone Hunting Licenses, and today I read where a drone crashed down in Flo-Ree-Duh, shutting down a stretch of highway near Tyndall AFB.  I wonder how much it costs to get one of them bad boys mounted, and how much wall space does the mount take up?

Man I gott get one of these

The Town of Deer Trail, Colorado is considering selling "Drone Hunting Licenses", and even offering a reward to the sportsman(woman) lucky enough to bag one.

"The Town of Deer Trail shall issue a reward of $100 to any shooter who presents a valid hunting license and the following identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government."

Licenses are expected to sell like hotcakes.  I know I want one.

Better late than never, I suppose

Sometimes I sit back and wonder if I'm a little late to the game.

   I really didn't start watching what was happening in politics until just a couple of years ago, and even then I read with a fairly high degree of cautious optimism.  What I mean is, I looked at people like Breitbart as being a little over the top when it comes to Big Guvurnmint Paranoia.  Fortunately, I continued reading and researching, and stumbled my way into a lot of blogs that provided a lot of information, and I am now a believer that we are living in a country that is more like another Bourne movie than I like. 

   My point here is this;  If we are right, and the fecal matter is approaching contact with a rotary cooling device, where do I fit in?  I suffer from no illusion about physically holding my own against 20 something MMA fighters.  That aint happening.  I know I can drop a mule deer at 500 yards with a single shot without hesitation, but I aint a match for a hellfire missile or a drone strike.  Heck, I probably don't even have enough food to last more than a couple of months.  Did I wait too long to figure this out, or is there a place at the table for all?

I guess that when the time comes, that question will answer itself.  Until then, it's time to start taking care of the issues I can.

Gotta start somewhere

   I have been standing on the sidelines long enough.  I have been posting some comments on my facebook page, but I think its time to jump in to the deeper end of the pool (besides, my facebook page was for business and my boss/wife thinks its probably a better idea not to get too political on the business site).

   I am a conservative, non-guilty white male, living in the Land of Enchantment.  I own my own business, and am a proud supporter of the 2nd Amendment.  The business that I own is a coffee shop, which is where the name of the blog, as well as my screen name come from.  I have been reading conservative blogs for quite some time now, and I have decided to throw my hat in the ring, so to speak.  On a pretty much daily basis, I read Zip, Pissed, Angel and Wirecutter just to name a few.

   This being my first post, I doubt highly that anyone will read it, but like the title says:  "You gotta start somewhere".  See you tomorrow.
