Turkeys in Turkey

Are invading Iraq.  Great, first Al Qaeda, now Turkey.  Who is next, Iran?  Turkey better get their act together.  They have been pretty decent allies, but this bites.  Plus they rogered T.E. Lawrence, so we have to watch for them trying to screw us.

Mr. Fu Likes Montana

They have their heads on straight up there (well, most of them).  And they don’t want any crap from the Federal government (damn Yankees).  Who can blame them, especially after that Ruby Ridge crap?

Being From Nebraska

Mr. Fu welcomes our new frozen, slow moving ice overlords.  Finally, the slide into global cooling that was promised during Mr. Fu’s youth.  Hopefully everyone around the world will enjoy making snowmen and learning to work to store up food for a real winter.  Not the accursed mud season that inhabits some places.

This Will Make Dear Hunting A Lot Easier

Wonder if they use double-ought buckshot or something?  That could ruin you whole day if you were even just close to the wrong end….

Economies Of Scale That Do Not Work

Government is the only thing that increases in per unit cost as the supply of it increases.

Pythons in America!

Citizens of the Southern United States, this could happen to you! Pythons to attack the South?!?!?!?!

Mr. Fu did not even bother to go to the article, the Digg comments were too hilarious. Highlights:

I, for one, welcome our new python overlords.

by nirav72 49 minutes agoYou won’t be welcoming them once you find one or two crawling in your backyard one morning. Seriously, the thought of them out in the wild here in north america makes me shiver. Why does it have to be snakes?

Well, that is if they don’t get driven out by all the killer bees.
Let me know when they adapt to being smacked with a machete. Until then this “Pythons could over run the country” story is nonsense.
Or not!
The southern part of th country has too many natural preditors!

Highly adaptable means you come home to the kitchen one day and see python getting ready to load up a stew

I want these m*f*ing snakes off my m*f*ing plains.
In other news, today monkeys are flying out of Al Gores butt. Both are equally liable to happen.

Don’t Need A Doctor To Know They’re Crazy

Just like Dylan doesn’t need a Weatherman to tell him which way the wind blows.

SLAPSHOT continues to spoon feed us information. This time a clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, has diagnosed the liberals as suffering from a mental disorder.

“Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

In a summary drawn from his book:

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

  • creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
  • satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
  • augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
  • rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

Hmmm, sounds like a familiar historical movement. 1) Jews control all the money and are to blame for the situation. 2) We were victimized by the rest of Europe. 3) Jews!  4) Service to the state.

Hayek well summed up the appeals to the least common denominator in order to consolidate power.  This is nothing new, the politics of envy and emotion.

Nebraskans Will Be Warm

While some of you Californians and Floridians will freeze to death in the New World Order (of the coming Ice Age). Well, perhaps not, but it is nice to hear some one talk about how wacky the man-made global warming crowd is to claim that a little extra summer is not the end of the world.  Thanks to our pal SLAPSHOT for sending this in to Mr. Fu.

Mass Shootings and the Coddled Generation

Interesting thoughts. Even in a culture where “everybody wins,” some people still know they have lost on many fronts, and it confuses them. They have not learned to deal with the curve balls that life throws because no one has let them or expected them to learn.

Mr. Fu doubts this is a new phenomenon though, it goes back a ways.  Charles Whitman and Lee Harvey Oswald were certainly not the product of our current “everybody wins” culture.  Technology has just improved and increased the body count, but running amok is an old thing, and just as fatal to those killed with a knife as with a firearm.

Contrast

This versus that.  Mr. Fu is going with this.  Though Tom Jones sings, “I’ve had enough, of this and that.  And this and that is no good.”

Dihydrogen Monoxide, Dihydrogen Monoxide Everywhere

And nor a drop to drink.  The Fu Family experienced a massive accidental dihydrogen monoxide release from the pressurized dihydrogen monoxide solvent / coolant system.  As a result we had approximately 1,100 square feet of the first floor covered in some amount of the potentially fatal substance.  Resultant losses were small number of household items, 170 square feet of carpeting and carpet backing (that stuff absorbs fluids like crazy), 190 or so square feet of engineered hardwood flooring, and a lot of time.

Mr. Fu highly recommends the Shop-Vac series of Wet/Dry vacuum cleaners.  Mr. Fu’s four gallon model tackled most of the flood, with numerous dumpings out the back door.

So now it is on to installation of ceramic tile, and perhaps some sort of sump or drain system.  Mr. Fu painted the master bedroom as most everything was removed and we were going to paint anyway.  Might as well paint while there is no floor covering to ruin with paint.

That was Mr. Fu’s weekend.  He is happy to return to his day job for a well deserved rest.

Freakin’ Commies

Mad Rocket Scientist posts a link to this garbage.  Mr. Fu is surprised that one of  teachers was not Mrs. Glampers.
