How Bills are Created and Passed These Days

H/T to Crooks and Liars for the video.

Want to Watch Live Streaming of the Olympics?? You're Shit Out of Luck Unless You Already Have Cable or Satellite!!

Squatlo had been bitching about NBCs coverage of the Olympics and with good reason from what I remember watching the previous Olympics that NBC did.

While talking to The Old Lady about this, she decided to check out to see about live streaming Olympic events. Turns out you need to sign in with your cable or satellite provider in order to watch live streaming. If you have cable or satellite, why in the hell would you want to watch it on a fucking confuser???????????

Below are some FAQs about accessing the live streaming.
These clips are from the page at

It's not enough to have cable or satellite, you have to have CNBC and MSNBC in your subscription package to watch all the events!!

NBC and TNT do the same thing for watching online some of  their shows. Had to find a pirated link to watch "Falling Skies".  Missed the last season of "Chuck" because we no longer had cable. We still aren't able to watch the missed episodes of "Chuck" at or Hulu even tho the series has ended. Why don't they just let people watch online??  That way they get more eyeballs watching their shows and because they usually run commercials during the online shows, what's the difference??

Back when we had cable, we didn't have to go thru network websites to watch shows. We could access them with our cable account. Going to NBC or TNT would have just added a bullshit useless step to the process!!

Duck or Gecko

Sub-Space Communicator

And Now For Something Completely Different

No, this isn't a Monty Python skit, it's a real story from London!!

Just in time for the sporting crowd coming for the Olympics a hotel in London has replaced the bibles in the rooms with "Fifty Shades of Grey". Sounds like a good swap to me. I think the book "Fifty Shades" will be more instructive and provide more interesting reading than the bible. Mind you, I haven't read either book, I'm just going by what I've read about them. But hey, most bible-thumpers know less about their holy book than I do!!
Some images I found on google.

It's interesting what you can find on google. If I had read the book, maybe I'd know whether the main character was male or female!!

Anywho, the main point of this post is the fact that a hotel in London replaced the bible with "Fifty Shades of Grey". They said hardly anyone reads the bible anyway and maybe this would spice things up a bit.

Some would say they are replacing one book of fiction (one with multiple authors written over many centuries) with another work of fiction with only one author and considerably fewer rewrites!! I'll leave that up to you to decide.

Voter Fraud

Just read an article about the dead girlfriend of an Arizona FuckingRepublican county supervisor candidate that voted for five years after she died.  From her death in 2007 until this year.

A Pinal County supervisor candidate has withdrawn from the race in the wake of voter-fraud allegations involving a former companion who, records show, has continued to vote by absentee ballot in the five years since her death.

Read more:

Voter fraud is a Class 6 felony.
She would not enumerate how many ballots issued to Nassar had been filled out and returned since her death. Records showed Nassar continued to be on the active voter rolls until officials received the anonymous note. She has since been removed.

This must be why the FuckingRepublicans are so determined to stop voter fraud. They are very experienced at it and know it's happening because they are the ones doing it!!!!!!

Bad News

Had bad news this morning when we got up. NO INTERNET!! Had a bad thunderstorm this morning and the modem got fried. Called tech support, couldn't fix it over the phone, brought the modem in to tech support at the phone company and they checked it out, it was shot. Got another modem, brought it home, plugged it in and still no intratubes. Called tech support again and explained the modem was working but not thru the router. Finally after rebooting modem, router and resetting modem got the system back up and running. Otherwise wouldn't be using my laptop to post this.

Usually something gets posted on a blog and then the blogger puts it on facebook.  I put this on facebook and then did a copy and paste job to my blog.

"40 seconds a day, how am I going to watch internet porn that way???"

A friend on facebook gave me the link to this video.

Pigs and Chickens

At one time we had pigs and chickens at the same time. If a chicken was stupid enough to get in the pig pen, the pig would eat if it could catch it.

Another Plus

Another plus to doing comment moderation is I can delete spamm before it ever hits the comments. My last post received a comment with spamm, a link to used cars. I marked it as spamm and it never showed up anywhere other than in my e-mail inbox.

They've gotten very sneaky with their spamm, the comment starts off sounding complimentary and ends with a link to whatever they are pushing.

My New Car, MAYBE!!

The other Friday I bought some raffle tickets to win this car. If I win it, it won't have the sign on the door.

Little Brothers, Friends of the Elderly has a raffle every year for a fund raiser. Most years the top prize is a car. It's usually a used car, but one in excellent condition. This year it's a 40th year anniversary edition Mustang, a 2004 model.  The tickets were $3 each or 2 for $5 and I bought $10 worth. They have raffled the same car more than once when the winner donated it back.

I have to wait until the end of Sept. for them to do the drawing.

Ol'Buzzard had a comment on my post announcing comment moderation;
I wondered what had happened. Guess i missed it.
the Ol'Buzzard

Seems there is this old curmudgeon who has a problem with women and has nothing good to say about YellowDogGranny. Thinks she is a crazy old broad in Tejas and leaves nasty comments about her. I know this crazy old broad in Tejas, I've talked to her face-to-face. I like this crazy old broad in Tejas and I don't like when someone comes on my blog and disses her or anyone else for that matter.

The ironic thing is that the old curmudgeon doesn't allow any comments on his blog because someone has been doing to him directly on his blog what he does to other commenters on other people's blogs.

It used to be kids would ask if you had radio and TV when you were a kid. And when you said there was radio but you were Xyrs old before your family got a TV, the kid would call you ancient!!! Now it's cell phones, computers and intratubes.

The Least Interesting Man in the World

It takes awhile but at the end he gets to the least interesting man in the world. He also has some comments on manufactured outrage.

Pre-Existing Condition

H/T to Squatlo for the cartoon


A friend was just over and when he came in I was leaving a comment on another blog. He was sounding a little surprised that I could type. I told him I took typing my senior year in high school.  The Old Lady said I got a better grade in typing(she claims she saw my grades on my school transcript) than she did. I'll take her word for it as I don't even know if I passed the class as it was a filler and not one I needed to graduate and after I got my diploma I never went back to get my final report card.

Who'd a thunk 47yrs ago that typing would come in handy for a guy like me. But in the past 15 or so years it has come in handy and I've become a lot more proficient at typing thanks to confusers and playing around online than I would have ever guessed!!

Sunday Funnies

Come again on the salad or is that the tartar sauce????????

I tried it, thought I was going to die!!(Some old-timers may remember this line.)

For me everyday is Saturday and it's great.

I've had days like this.

What kind of sale got her that excited???? 

Ah, chicken the all-purpose meat.


How much would it be if they put something in the box??????


I don't have to worry about tourists if I were to get naked. Exposing all the skin to biting insects is another matter and the reason it's not a good idea to be a nudist UP on the Tundra!!!

What Obamacare Being Upheld Really Means

The real reason Roberts decided to uphold Obamacare. The above compensations will continue and likely increase for the foreseeable future!!!!!! Pity the poor bastard at Humana, he only makes a measly 20 Grand a Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the real reason why healthcare is not affordable. These are the people in charge of the "DEATH PANELS"!! And this will continue now that Obamacare has been upheld.
