CCCP Officials Order Removal Of Controversial Flag

flag

Did I say CCCP? Oops. I meant NCAA officials.

A leader of the North Dakota Republican Party says his group was forced to take down their Sioux banner by the NCAA.

Jim Poolman, Vice Chairman of the NDGOP, was in Philadelphia attending the University of North Dakota/Univerity of Minnesota game last night. According to his Twitter account, his group was asked to take down their Fighting Sioux banner by the NCAA:

Security just came into the suite to say that the NCAA called to say take down the Sioux flag in the suite! #freespeechhaters #gosioux9:55 PM – 10 Apr 2014

If you are not familiar with the contoversy, a few years ago the NCAA forced the University of North Dakota to change the “hostile and abusive” nickname. After a long legal battle, UND caved and dropped the name. They currently do not have a new nickname, (nor should they adopt one in my opinion). Fans still wear Sioux jerseys, shirts, hats, pants, etc to games. The people in this post brought a flag to hang up in their suite during the game. Apparently, some NCAA jackass saw it and told security that they must take it down.

Someday, NCAA officials will start monitoring what fan’s at sporting events are wearing, and if they don’t approve of an individuals clothing, they can demand that he be kicked out. Sorry kids. Either turn those jerseys inside out, or get the hell out!

Cirque du Idiots

Cirque du Retards

Protesters — dressed in one-piece clown suits, doing acrobatics and bouncing exercise balls — blocked a Google Bus Tuesday morning in San Francisco’s Mission District to protest the tech shuttles’ use of Muni stops.

At the first Google Bus protest, back in December, protesters held signs. This time, they formed human pyramids, did the can-can and tried to board the bus. One protester dressed up as a surveillance camera walked around on four stilts.

Protesters chose Tuesday because the Board of Supervisors is set to vote in the afternoon on an environmental appeal against a Municipal Transportation Agency pilot program that would allow private shuttle buses to use Muni stops for a fee.

…“The first bus protest led to a public conversation that needed to be had,” said Amanda Ream, who helped organize the protest. “Muni’s in crisis, in debt. We want to see an effort to protect economic diversity in San Francisco, and that means a well-funded Muni.”

“We want to see an effort to protect economic diversity in San Francisco…”

Protect economic diversity? By squelching competition? By limiting choices? Only allowing gubbmint to participate? Doesn’t sound very diverse, does it…

Bman’s Friday Night Top 10 Movie Scenes

I miss the Friday Night Hit Parade sponsored by RD Walker and The Real Revo. It seems like it’s been a while since we’ve had some cool tunes to rock to while we all drink our Pabst Blue Ribbon’s. Our fellow Revoista, MadBrad, came to the rescue with his weekly Friday Night at the Movies posts to help us unwind and forget about all the minutia that seems to happen every week. Heck, the superb movies he selects for us every Friday night are more real than any news report we get anymore from the MSN. I don’t mean to tread on his discipline of movie genre’s, but I meant to post this as a prelude to his weekly show. As for me, I have a 7-pack of Pabst, and plan to watch his publication of The Warriors now. I will also give a PBR rating of the film in the comments section.

As for now, gunga, la gunga.

Veruca Salt Goes To Court

veruca

A northern New Jersey honor student who says her parents kicked her out of the house when she turned 18 is now suing them, asking a court to make them support her and pay for her college tuition.

A judge in Morristown Tuesday ruled against immediately forcing Rachel Canning’s parents — her father a retired police chief — to pay her $650 weekly child support and pay for her remaining year of high school tuition, as she requested in a lawsuit filed last week. Judge Peter Bogaard scheduled a hearing for next month to decide whether to require her parents to pay for Canning’s college tuition.

A spoiled child will always believe,
Lieing has its benefits.
Even when they age,
To mask their insecurities…
A spoiled child will always believe,
Lieing has its benefits.
Only to ruin,
All of their relationships.

The Family That Slays Together, Stays Together

Daddy and Grand Pappi must be so proud.

His grandfather sits on California’s death row, and his father avoided a death sentence by pleading guilty to killing two Oregon girls.

Now Francis Weaver, 31, is one of three men charged with murder in what Canby, Ore., police describe as a drug deal gone bad.

Police allege Weaver and co-conspirators sought to steal drugs last weekend from a Grants Pass man whose car contained 15 pounds of marijuana. The victim, 43-year-old Edward Spangler, was shot in the face and shoulder.

That’s 3 consecutive generations. That’s what I call consistency. I’ll give them that. Talk about 50 shades of fucked up.

I was living in Oregon when Ward Weaver, (the dad) was being investigated for the disappearance of Miranda Gadis, 13, and Ashley Pond, 12. They were later found burried under concrete in Weaver’s backyard.

As they say, the apple doesn’t rot far from the tree.

The 97 Percent Are 95 Percent Wrong

Environmentalists and Democrats often cite a “97 percent” consensus among climate scientists about global warming. But they never cite estimates that 95 percent of climate models predicting global temperature rises have been wrong.

Former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says that climate models used by government agencies to create policies “have failed miserably.” Spencer analyzed 90 climate models against surface temperature and satellite temperature data, and found that more than 95 percent of the models “have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979, whether we use their own surface temperature dataset (HadCRUT4), or our satellite dataset of lower tropospheric temperatures (UAH).”

Let’s Play: Is It Racissssst!!

Plans to celebrate Black History Month with a lunch of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon did not go over well at a private high school in Concord.

Administrators at Carondelet High School, an all-girl Catholic school, are apologizing to students and parents this week for proposing a menu that some complained perpetuated racial stereotypes, NBC Bay Area reported.

In a letter sent to the homes of students, Principal Nancy Libby wrote, “I’d like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members. Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetuate racial stereotypes.

“Please know also that I have looked into this matter, determined how this happened and have already taken steps to ensure this does not occur again,” Libby wrote.

Administrators agreed to remove watermelon from the celebration, scheduled for Friday. They were expected to remove the chicken and cornbread, too.

Al Sharpton stated that his favorite meal is fried chicken and waffles. I love both, but never occurred to me to have them combined. I may be missing out on something awesome! Perhaps the school decided to have the combination of corn bread, fried chicken and watermelon to introduce more diversity to the students’ meal experience?

So, is it racist?

Communism Key To Combat Climate Change Says Chief UN Climate Official

China

China is the world largest emitter of greenhouse gases, but according to the United Nations chief climate official, Christiana Figueres, they are “doing it right” on climate change.

But what is the secret for “doing it right?” Apparently, according to Figueres, it is the lack of civil liberties.

China is also able to implement policies because its political system avoids some of the legislative hurdles seen in countries including the U.S., Figueres said.

Key policies, reforms and appointments are decided at plenums, or meeting of the governing Communist Party’s more than 200-strong Central Committee. The National People’s Congress, China’s unicameral legislature, largely enforces decisions made by the party and other executive organs.

The political divide in the U.S. Congress has slowed efforts to pass climate legislation and is “very detrimental” to the fight against global warming, she said.

So there you go. In order to successfully combat climate change and adopt super awesome climate legislation, the people simply need to forfeit their freedoms an go full Commie.

That is the plan no doubt, and it has nothing to do with “climate change.” “Climate change” is just the vehicle needed for total control of a populace.

It Always Starts Out As Voluntary

More loss of liberty on the horizon I would guess

The Energy Department on Tuesday is rolling out new, improved software to help Americans measure the energy efficiency of their homes.

DOE says its energy-scoring software — called the Home Energy Scoring Tool — is like a vehicle’s mile-per-gallon rating because it allows homeowners to compare the energy performance of their homes to other homes nationwide. It also provides homeowners with suggestions for improving their homes’ efficiency. The software is part of the government’s effort to reduce the nation’s energy consumption; but it’s also billed as a way to keep home-retrofitting going, at a time when stimulus funds for weather-proofing have run out.

The Home Energy Scoring Tool “can be a powerful motivator in getting homeowners to make energy efficiency improvements,” DOE says.

Know what is a powerful motivator for me to be more energy efficient? When I see my electric bill every month. How long will it be would you figure, that when selling your home, it will be a federal law requiring an assessment by a specialist, for a fee of course, who will then score your homes energy rating.

Right now, getting your home scored is voluntary.

Oh. Voluntary. How does it go again? Voluntary. Suggested. Persuaded. Required. Coerced. You know how it goes.

A RealRevo Scientific Study: What Freezes Faster? Cold or Hot Water?

Lately, many here have been debating in the “off topic” section on whether cold or hot water freezes faster in chilled temperatures. The science claims, that under most conditions, warmer water freezes faster than cold water. It’s a phenomenon that has no real clear cut explanation. However, Revoista R.D. Walker pointed out that years ago for his son’s school science project, the cold water froze first every single time. We can only speculate why this would happen and go against the scientific claim. Perhaps he did the experiment where conditions were not optimal? Perhaps the humidity was too high at the time? We can only speculate at this point. To put the matter to rest, I decided to perform the experiment here at the Revo Compound- Tundra District.

I began the experiment on 12/30/2013 @ 8:20PM CST, where the temperature was -27f with 41% humidity. I took 2 identical plastic containers, filling one with cold tap water and the other with boiling water, (CAUTION: make sure you have adult supervision and that all safety equipment is properly used, ie, helmet, safety goggles, mouth guard, and a protective smock). Precisely 2 cups of water was measured out, and poured hot and cold water into their respective containers. I chose a spot outside of my house that I could easily access the experiment, which just happened to be right outside my front door. Now it was time to wait and closely monitor.

Continue on for the shocking results. More below the fold…

Think Of Your Fellow Man And Lend Him A Helping Hand

…Put a little love in your heart.

Around this time of year, I always start thinking about Teddy Stallard. Now, his name may be fictional, but his story isn’t. Teddy’s story is about more than kindness; it is about the essence and the power that compassion offers all humanity. We can all make a difference in someone’s life. Reach out to those who need you.

Yule Yetta: The Christmas Goat

.yule yetta

So be good for goodness sake.
Ohhhh, you better watch out, you better not cry,
you better not pout I’m telling you why,
‘Cause Yule Yetta will come to your house.

One of the biggest strategeries parents have over their children to correct undesirable behaviors is the art of threats. Some threats are more affective than others of course. Parents often make the mistake of open-ended threats that simply are not affective and often just leave the child confused. If you don’t stop crying, I’ll give you something to cry about! If you don’t shape up, why, you’ll be sorry! These are examples of open-ended threats. They don’t really work. Sure, maybe the first couple times used by parents they may move to be affective, but as the child learns and becomes more bold in his more experienced age, he learns to ignore them, and continue with the undesirable behavior. These are threats of the lazy parent. The threats are easy to say, but the parent, like the child, have no idea of the planned actions that the parent will take that would lead to appropriate consequences. The parents are just winging it, trying to bluff their child into appropriate behavior. It’s just a matter of time when the child calls the bluff.

My parents used threats towards my brother and I to correct undesirable behaviors. They never used the open-ended approach. They had 3 threats in their arsenal, all quite powerful:

1) Sending me to Diaper School, (I didn’t actually know if any school existed, but I didn’t want to take the chance to find out).
2) Whipping out my broken Fat Albert paddleball game, which replaced the wooded spoon, when the threat of a swat was needed,(this was quite cruel. How sick is it that my parents would use one of my beloved cartoon characters to inflict pain and suffering on me?)
3) Calling Yule Yetta.

Number 3, was by far, the scariest, most powerful, straighten-up-right-quick threat ever used. Yule Yetta, as explained to me at a very young age, was the Christmas goat. Yule Yetta didn’t just work around Christmastime, but all year long. Apparently, Yule Yetta was a female goat who walked on her hind legs.

Now, we all know Santa Claus tours the world at Christmas with his great big sack upon his back, delivering presents and goodies to children. Well, Yule Yetta carries a great big sack as well….except she doesn’t bring presents to children. No, she goes to the homes of bad, naughty, misbehaved children, snatches them up, and stuffs them into her big, black sack, and takes them away. Where to I don’t know. I didn’t even ask. I didn’t want to know. All I knew is that I sure as shit didn’t want Yule Yetta coming to my house…for me. The phrase in my house, “I’m CALLING YULE YETTA!”, was a staple and worked every time to change behaviors and attitudes of my brother and I. It never failed to correct me. That phrase always corrected me. I tried to be a good boy because of it. I was scared to death of ever meeting Yule Yetta. I took those threats very seriously.

Sometimes though, a parent may make a threat for no other reason than for their own entertainment….

Why Chicks Dig North Dakotans

FARGO – Oil production isn’t the only thing growing in North Dakota.

An online condom seller has named North Dakota king of the oversized condom, with a study showing the Roughrider state is No. 1 in the nation in buying larger-sized condoms.

Minnesotans may have a bone to pick with the latest Condomania.com study, which the website released Tuesday. Minnesota ranked a mere 39th.

States that bought a higher-than-average amount of larger-sized condoms

1. North Dakota
2. Rhode Island
3. South Dakota
4. District of Columbia (makes sense)
5. Massachusetts
6. Ohio
7. Arizona
8. Alabama
9. New York
10. South Carolina

Free Rocks For Libyans! Libya Implements Sharia Law

They’re going to party like it’s A.D. 632! Sharia Law is here to stay! So get your throwing arms in shape, be sure to warm up properly, work on your accuracy, and get ready to peg anyone in violation of Sharia Law upside the head with your favorite rock. The great tradition of stoning is here!

Libya’s National Assembly has voted to make Sharia, Islamic law, the foundation of all legislation and state institutions in the country.

The immediate scope of the General National Congress”s (GNC) decision on Wednesday was not clear, but a special committee will review all existing laws to guarantee they comply with Islamic law.

“Islamic law is the source of legislation in Libya,” the GNC said in a statement after the vote. “All state institutions need to comply with this.”

The decision may impact banking, criminal and financial laws. One specific reform might include a shift to Islamic finance regulations that avoid interest and pure speculation.

The President’s Plan To Increase ACA Enrollment? Get Potential Customers Shitfaced

Drunk-Man-with-Empty-Shot-Glasses460x300

President Obama wants young bartenders to give their customers a tip — sign up for health insurance under Obamacare.

Speaking at a White House Youth Summit on Wednesday, the president continued to enlist Americans from all walks to life to join in the effort to sell health care reform.

“No matter how much I care, the truth is, for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. It’s going to be you,” the president said. “If you’re a student body president, set up a conference on campus. If you work at a nonprofit, open your doors and use your email list to help people learn the facts. If you’ve got a radio show, spread the word on air. If you’re a bartender, have a happy hour — and also probably get health insurance because a lot of bartenders don’t have it.”

Many of you know I’m a bartender. I’ve done it for years. It’s good money and non-stressful. About 70% of my compensation comes in the forms of monetary gifts from customers. These gifts, otherwise know as tips, reflects upon my performance and customer service. Shitty service equals shitty tips. Good service; Good tips. I generally receive pretty good tips.

I can’t think of a better way than turning a pleasant Happy Hour into a dreadful Zero Hour for my customers, (named for both Obama and the amount of tips I would receive), than encouraging customers to sign up for Obamacare. My tips would drop faster than the panties of a bar slut after several shots of tequila.

Someone Cut The Power In Venezuela?

cord

Apparently, Venezuela has one huge extension cord from it’s power plant and those blasted right-winger fascists cut it, leaving millions in the dark. By the way, since when did facsism become right-wing?

CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Tuesday he had proof that a massive power outage was caused by saboteurs aiming to throw the country into chaos before municipal elections this weekend.

The blackout on Monday night was the second major power outage the year, plunging much of the country into darkness and prompting accusations of government incompetence from the opposition.

Speaking on state TV alongside Electricity Minister Jesse Chacon and other officials, Maduro briefly showed a photo of what appeared to be a cut conductor cable lying on the floor.

“What motive could there be for leaving a whole country without electricity?” he said, adding that Chacon had brought him the evidence and more details would be unveiled on Wednesday.

“We always face these attacks by the right-wing fascists … they wanted to make me, as president of the republic, decree a state of emergency and suspend the elections.”

Critics of the government say lack of maintenance was likely to blame for the outage.

I would guess it was that damned Snowball who did it.

Jingle Balls

Is this Christmas shopping holiday shopping ad offensive to you?

As for me, I don’t find it offensive per se. It’s juvenile and mildly humorous in the least, but I’m an adult. i’m not offended. I won’t advocate for a ban on shopping at Kmart because of it. it’s just a stupid TV commercial.

At the same time, I ask myself where class has gone in our society. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed us being bombarded by more and more classless acts on TV and movies, from chronic flatulence to sexual innuendo, and more. Again, I’m not offended by this stuff, but I still ask where modesty and class has gone. I mean, did you happen to see that episode of “Leave It To Beaver”, when Wally woke up in the middle of the night and farted in the face of a sleeping Beaver, only to get applause and a response from the laugh track? Didn’t think so. Although, I do happen to remember June telling Ward that she thought he was a little hard on the Beaver last night….

Anyway, share your thoughts on the ad if you like.

Buffalo Jump

A buffalo jump is a cliff formation which North American Indians historically used in order to hunt and kill plains bison in mass quantities. The bison would fall over the cliff and break their legs, leaving them helpless.

buffalo jump

This is a different kind of Buffalo Jump. Watch the upper left hand corner. A full-blown feeb is enjoying his Sunday afternoon, being a moron and sliding down the protective rail on the upper deck at a Buffalo Bills football game. Weeeeeeeeee!!! Oh Sh#t!!

The man the feeb fell on is expected to make a full recovery. As for the feeb? He will walk away from the hospital still a dipshit.

It won’t surprise me at all if the feeb hires a bunch of ambulance chasing lawyers, and sues the stadium for not having the warning sign, “No Sliding Down Rail”.
