Voi Che Sapete

Paraphrasing Glenn Beck:
Liberals love America in the same way a wife-beater loves his wife. "If only she stayed in line, I wouldn't have to bash on her so much!"

Angelic Post That I Disagree With

Angel has a funny post up on her site. For the second time in 11 months of her daily postings, I disagree with her. Making fun of women (or men, depending what sex you are) is part of the fun of male-female relationships. Let's admit it - we don't get each other. Not entirely, at least. What better way to enjoy the opposite sex than through humor?

Angel is right that women are disgustingly oppressed in many parts of the world, but can't we have fun while we work to resolve that horror? Poking fun at women for their weirdness/weaknesses, or men for their equal and opposite weirdness/weaknesses is just plain funny.

I was born Catholic, but not going to a church for 10 years or so made me unable to give confession. So I'm confessing to you, dear reader. This is a disgusting and embarrassing admission, so you must promise never to tell anyone. It's part of the code. Ok, here goes.

I know it's sick, twisted, and probably even perverted in some way, but I like fried Spam. A lot.

Mmmm. Anyway, when figuring out my sentence penance , keep in mind that I only eat it on toast, with eggs. That alone should knock off six or seven Hail Mary's from my payment, right?

Not My Usual Thing

As you probably know, I try to stay away from religion (barring my anti-islam intifada of course) and sex on this blog. I'm stepping out of character for this one. The first half of this video SO accurately describes married life that it deserves viewing. The second half is just funny, and not recommended. Try it if you want, but you won't want to again soon! Trust me :).

Apologies for the nature of this vid. SFW. Watch it with your spouse! If you dare...

There's nothing on tv. Conditions are perfect.

Are Vlaams Belang, Brussels Journal, or Gates of Vienna racist?

Charles at Little Green Footballs seems to think so, and judging from this (one of a dozen or so posts), his followers agree. I used to think I was one of his followers, but now am not so sure. Charles seems to be cutting the legs out from under the very people who might save Europe from Islamification. I started posting comments around #100+, and found no support.

As you hopefully know by now, I couldn't care less what race you are, as long as you don't follow the murderous cult of Islam. I'm starting to think I don't belong at lgf. I don't even have a pony tail! :)

Cooking Blog?

Perhaps I should get better at explaining the 'toss it in and see what happens' method of cooking, since we all know the basics intuitively, but here I go...


I have just discovered the magic of sherry. Try this. Wait! Make a bed of rice. Then try this. Get:

1 lb sirloin tips
1 big ole onion sliced small if you like onions, large if you don't so you can pick them out ('big ole' means 'large')
(other ingredients to appear later: chopped garlic, worcestershire sauce, Harvey's Bristol Cream, rosemary, S&P, and fresh parsely, but only if you've got it.)

Throw 3T to 1/4 cup of oil (NOT olive oil) into a pan. Let it heat to just around smoking (400ish), and toss the meat in. Don't put too much meat in, because the beef absolutely has to brown. If you put too much in, it will kind of boil, and have no taste. You can tell if you messed up because greyish bubbles will start to form if you put too much in.

Anyway, get some tongs to flip them and let them get that great caramelized brownness on all 4 sides (ignore the ends). Remove the meat and put into a bowl to let it rest. Hopefully, your pan is still smokin' hot, so (if not, wait 'till you see the smoke and then) drop the onions in. You aren't 'sweating' them, your 'caramelizing' them, which is a bit trickier, and requires you to watch them the whole time. But if you're reading this, you're a conservative, so I have faith in you!

Scorch, shake and flip those onions until they have an uneven browning that looks vaguely tasty, but make sure they are not reduced to onion paper. I'm guessing 3-5 minutes. Then add as much chopped garlic (from that short jar you get at Wal-Mart or CostCo) as you enjoy.

You're almost done, my friend! Drop, a tablespoon (maybe two. It's your choice) of worcestershire sauce in the pan and then a half of a cup of sherry and a whole sprig of rosemary (dose it with 1t of rosemary flakes if you don't have any growing in your kitchen. But you should. In fact, you should have rosemary, thyme, chives, basil, and even oregano and marjoram in your windowsill (with supplimental light if necessary). Not to mention the spice that goes with everything, PARSLEY! Remember, 'spice is the spice of life'. Sorry about the compound parentheses.) Make sure to blast it (tilt it) on the flames so the alcohol is torched out. Act like it was an accident that it burst into flames:). S&P. Finish with an oz (2 Tablespoons) of butter and parsley 30 seconds before you are going to serve it. If you only have dried parsley, skip that step, or put it in earlier or something... you are on your own and can't blame me.

Cool tasting Beef on Rice - Done. Trust me once. I won't let you down in the kitchen. Bedroom, maybe. Kitchen, never.

Where did 'Breakfast' come from?

After the extremely successful toast rally yesterday, I decided to take a little break and go see the sights. I drove over to Akron, Ohio, home of the famous Catholic cathedral, the Sistine Chapel. There is a pretty cool picture there of God and Adam almost touching on the ceiling. It is very popular. Over in the corner of the chapel is a lesser known ceiling painting called the "Eighth Day".

As we know, on the seventh day, God rested. When he woke up on the 8th day, both he and Adam were famished! Neither had ever even eaten at this point (Eve was on a diet). God showed Adam how to break his fast by zapping some bread and butter with electricity. Yes, that's how the word breakfast was coined. By God, on day 8.

Needless to say, Adam loved the delicate flavoring and it's subtle undertones. He could not understand the concept of electricity though, and for thousands of years had to rely on fire to achieve a similar but less desirable result. Finally in the 1900's, the world finally understood God's concept of electricity well enough to use it in the creation of toast (hat tip Michael Faraday, Ben Franklin).

Both paintings were done by Mike Angelou, an Italian immigrant born in 1932. He is considered to be a pretty good artist.

Hail Satan!

Seriously, I'm not a fan of islam. I think they might actually be worshiping the devil unknowingly. No God that I'd bow to would demand so much death and pain in his name. I can't make it any plainer than that.

Apologies for not posting. Work has been hectic (in a good way. Thanks le's daughter!), and at home we are putting a hydroponics thingamajig in one of the master closets, setting up a small greenhouse outside, and building a 2 acre pond across the street. We're busy, but it's the fun kind of busy. And soon... FISH! I'm already deciding how I'm going to tell the wife that she's married to an unemployed fishing bum.

Don't tell my wife I'm quitting my job when the pond is done if you see her. It's a surprise. I'm sure she'll get as big of a kick out of it as I do!

UPDATE: Here's a good point. Imagine a flipped world where there were a BILLION Jews and only 15 million homicidal muslims. I'm not Jewish, but I'd move to that world in a heartbeat. Jews, like most free people, move the world forward and should be commended for it. muslims, not so much.

Steyn on Too Much TV

"The World Trade Center got taken out? Interesting. Who did it? Mohammed Atta and a gang of Saudi males? Yeah, yeah. But what’s the plot twist? Who really did it? Someone in the government, right?"

Long One, and I Agree

"The Iranians, of course, never cease denying that they intend to build a nuclear arsenal, and yet in the same breath they openly tell us what they intend to do with it."

Listen to our anthem
