    This is what “prepared” looks like.

  2. Shawn says:

    That’s only half of it. Position, defenses, food/water/oil…

    That’s a hell of a good start though. :)

  3. slaphappypap says:

    I Need more of that.

  4. slinger says:

    How did a picture of my gun safe get on the intertubes? Kidding … that’s what it looks like in my dreams though!

  5. notamobster says:

    I’ve got way more bullets than that, though not nearly as many magazines!

  6. Cincinnatus says:

    That’s how you get shit done!

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    “Cincinnatus…” that is a great handle. Welcome to the Revo.

  8. sortahwitte says:

    I hope this is his “small” safe. Seriously, I too can only dream of a stash that large. Are his rifle rounds in stripper clips?

  9. R.D. Walker says:

    Guess who is in my neck of the woods today ringing in the cowbell? When you want to sell a socialist plan, you go to the People’s Republic of Iowa City.

  10. Locke n Load says:

    I saw that, will be driving thru your area Saturday myself. Wanna bet O-jerkwad isn’t quite so welcomed this time?

  11. R.D. Walker says:

    Iowa City is the home of the University of Iowa and in the most liberal county in the state. It is like Madison, WI or Durham, NC. They will line up to tongue slather his messianic ass.

  12. R.D. Walker says:

    Saturday, huh? I assume you will be cruising down Interstate 80. Email me when you think you will be passing through and I will come to where you are and buy you a cup of joe. Anywhere around Iowa City is good.

  13. Locke n Load says:

    I’ll let you know if/when the route timing becomes clear. Hell, I’ll work on it now. And the coffee’s on me if I can make it through.

  14. R.D. Walker says:

    Praise for Obamacare…

    Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform “a miracle” and a major victory for Obama’s presidency, but couldn’t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

    “We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”

    Sweet!

  18. R.D. Walker says:

    Damn, what was Sarah wearing yesterday?!

  19. BaconNeggs says:

    Just heard Obama has paid a surprise visit to Afghanistan.

    Maybe he has gone to tell the troops why he was sitting with both his thumbs up his ass for almost a year, or why he was playing golf or holidaying, or insisting on dumb ROE, when they need manpower and resources which ended up costing lives.

    It should be intresting to see how the MSM spins this one.

  20. notamobster says:

    Maybe he went to pray at the mosque with some of his radical friends…

  21. Jim22 says:

    Sarah. That’s an interesting photo. The leather and the dark, hungry eyes are quite a contrast to McMain’s doofus grin. She instills hope in those of us who are Conservative, God loving people.

    I think I understand why she campaigned for McC. Little John introduced her to the national stage. For that she believes she owes him something.

    What does that mean? It means that she still has some things to learn about national politics. As Brad has so well said, the political arena is filled with liars, cheats and thieves.

    But this is something that was important to her. Now, however, she has repaid him and with minimal damage to her image.

    Yesterday I went to our county R convention here in Washington. We had several speakers but the most impressive was Clint Didier. He is a farmer from the eastern part of the state – but he has a history. He was an NFL player and has two super-bowl rings. He’s running for the US senate seat currently held by Democrat Patty Murray.

    The reason I bring him up is that he spoke of his faith in God and how ‘A voice’ told him to get off his tractor and oppose Murray.

    It is interesting that there are suddenly people like Palin and Didier are politicking and being unashamed of their faith.

    Palin has been working on her image. She came from a small town and showed it. Didier needs to work on his. He spoke for about fifteen minutes with a farmer’s tan and a toothpick behind his right ear. He wore a nice dark suit and a pair of white ostrich-skin boots.

    It remains to be seen whether either will prevail on the national scene. Palin has a head start and learns fast.

    The opposition is ruthless and unprincipled. Is there still a place for principled candidates? It is up to the people to decide; and the people are scared.

  22. Shawn says:

    Anyone else make the association about the RNC event at the “bondage-themed club” and Sarah’s current look?

  23. R.D. Walker says:

    Yer killing me here Shawn.

  24. Greg says:

    hahaha… Shawn the Slayer! Them dumb mother fxxkers dont ever learn… we need to whip all thier asses in the november elections on both sides! Tear up some ass and then start changing benefit plans and pulling back power from the feds…

    And, I just dont know for sure if I belive all this big sis raids on christian malitias… for me it is a sense of forebodding.

    Peace

  25. R.D. Walker says:

    Get your official President Barack Obama Commemorative Health Care Certificate here.

    It actually praises people “who believed people who love this country can change it.”

    Here are some corollaries.

    People who love classical music can change it.

    People who love New Orleans cooking can change it.

    People who love Coca Cola can change it.

    People who love their wives can change them.

    You get the dumb ass idea.

  26. Bman says:

    Did you see this on the certificate?

    “High quality affordable healthcare is no longer a privlege for a few, but a right to all”

    Since when is a “few” considered 85%? Even at the current numbers of 47 million without healthcare (which we all know is bogus) that leaves 253 million who are covered. Lets see…simple math here….Pardon me, the “few” is only 84% covered. My bad.

  27. MadBrad says:

    A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one battle, the French captured an English colonel. They took him to their headquarters, and the French general began to question him. Finally, as an afterthought, the French general asked, Why do you English officers all wear red coats? Don’t you know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at.

    In his bland English way, the officer informed the general that the reason English officers wear red coats is so that if they are shot, the blood won’t show, and the men they are leading won’t panic.

    And that is why, from that day to this, all French Army officers wear brown trousers.

  28. Shawn says:

    omg, I’m laughing so frickin hard now. Thanks MB!

  29. Locke n Load says:

    hey brad, i’m in j-ville tomorrow nite. call RD, get my number and call me

  30. slaphappypap says:

    BMAN, You forgot draftdodging

  31. MadBrad says:

    Elwood, you be safe out there tonight. There will be plenty of Beer left when you get here.

    After speaking to Mr. L&L I am imagining a guy wearing a dark mens dress hat, white shirt with tie, dark suit with blacked-out wayfarers on while driving at night, with a big loudspeaker on top of his rig announcing the upcoming Blues Brothers Show. I find the Chicago dialect to be among the most enjoyable of all American dialects. Good golly Miss Molly this could get serious tomorrow night. Two professional talkers and Beer. I’m already hating Friday morning.

  32. Locke n Load says:

    cant wait man, friday be damned

  33. notamobster says:

    I feel left out… when are you coming my way?

  34. MadBrad says:

    As if on cue…

    For some reason a friend of mine felt compelled to call me just now to let me hear what it sounds like when he shoots out the street lights within sight of his house. Interesting. Jacksonville is its usual freaky self tonight.

  35. Locke n Load says:

    Full moon Brad…full moon

  36. R.D. Walker says:

    Apparently Iowa has nice rest stops. Who knew? I tell you what, if you live in a great tourist destination like Iowa, you just never take advantage of the benefits.

  37. MadBrad says:

    I am thoroughly satsified with the fact that all of you folks think that I’M the CRAZY ONE here. I KNOW CRAZY, and I just met one CRAZY MFer, without a doubt. NO, I MEAN IT… (crazy).

    Eye yuss keeding, Locke & Load is one hell of a guy. He’s a TRUE Revoista. He’s got a look in his eye that I am ALL TOO familiar with. Like me he is carries the yoke and struggles under the burden of unmitigated GENIUS. It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it.

    If he actually had the time to really do some writing here we could start selling tickets at the door.

  38. notamobster says:

    I can’t wait to meet him in Louisiana or Michigan… I will travel to meet him… I love good conversation and craziness….

  39. MadBrad says:

    If he can figure out where you are at during a given time period he will be there, but half the time he doesn’t know where HE’S going to be next. We spent a good bit of time discussing the freaky people of Michigan this evening. There was a guy who used to live in Mount Pleasant in attendance.

  40. notamobster says:

    I live about 15-20 miles from Mt. Pleasant…

  41. Locke n Load says:

    Well that about explains everything, doesn’t it Nota :)

  42. Locke n Load says:

    Brad, that was too damned fun. Now that I’ve met the twisted minds behind the revo I have a much better understanding of why this place will ALWAYS be relevant. As for what we talked about before we finally left that den of iniquity, please, forward your interpretation to RD. I’ll explain it to him if he’s remotely interested.
    And that cab driver…man, I bet he hasn’t felt so damned proud of his home country in a long time sir. You do indeed have a charm about you, just as RD said you would. Even if you weren’t wearing enough camo for the occasion!

  43. Locke n Load says:

    As for the tickets at the door Brad, I think we both know who regularly packs the house. Thanks for finding the time buddy, thoroughly educational and enjoyable. But my pizza is still better.

  44. notamobster says:

    Oh… the crazy trolls below the bridge got nothin on us Yoopers! (Sure, I’me a transplant, but I’d rather be associated with Yoopers than Detroiters I grew up with!!!!

  45. Locke n Load says:

    Hehehe. Tell ya what Nota, if we can ever synchronize schedules I’ll glady buy you a few drinks as well, Yooper or not. And since Brad begged off the Italian Beef sandwich or Stufffed Pizza this time you get first shot at a chicago specialty. but lets be clear, I call texas home now. Chicago was a dreary dream, Texas is all my bright tomorrows. I may carry the best of chicago with me
    in the kitchen but don’t expect much else out of me to reflect it. Ok, maybe a lot of me reflects it but not my politics. Damn, I’ll never shake that town…

  46. MadBrad says:

    L & L, if you aren’t packing heat up in that cab you should find a more secure campground than where I left you last night. I’m sorry that Jennifer got out of there last night without showing you her titties. She planned on doing it, it’s one of her specialties.

    You be safe out there. I hope that you finally got some sleep last night. Roll on 18-Wheeler, rool on.

  47. MadBrad says:

    I have had to cancel any postings that start out with “Freaky Friday” because it is Good Friday. I can’t call THAT freaky.

  48. notamobster says:

    I don’t recall where the pic is, but it turns out the billboard of W with the words “Miss me Yet?” is real… It’s in Minnesota!

    Very good video/song about Zero from two college kids:

  51. MadBrad says:

    I am dimly aware of having posted something about burning Atlanta down last night. Can anybody help me out here?

  52. R.D. Walker says:

    Here is some stupidity from my neck of the woods. We might have nice rest stops, but Iowans are damned out of touch when it comes to the military. Both the cops involved and the news outlet reporting this are clueless.

    Police gave a warning to an Iowa National Guardsman who caused a stir Thursday by running along a road in full combat gear carrying what looked like a real rifle.

    Police caught up to the soldier around 11 a.m. near Wright Brothers Boulevard SW after multiple citizen reports. Apparently, the rifle was a mostly-rubber replica, referred to by Guardsman as a “rubber duck.”

    Police Lt. Kelly Fitzpatrick said the soldier was from the base nearby and went for a training run. The officers who responded to the area advised him that it wasn’t very smart.

    “He certainly didn’t use the amount of moxie and common sense that you would expect people to exhibit in present day,” Fitzpatrick said. “I mean, Prairie (High School) is only a stone’s throw from there.”

    The soldier was not arrested, and his name was not released by police or the National Guard.

    By the way, the guardsman was stopped about a mile way and across Interstate 380 from the high school.

  53. R.D. Walker says:

    The guardsman replies….

    OK,so here is the real/true story…from the SOLDIER himself: I have been conducting these Road Marches for the last 2 years. I will address this story from beggining to end.

    1. I never ran through a farm field, I was on the side of the road the whole time. My “combat gear” consisted of my marked uniform, cap, ruck-sack and “Rubber-Duck” weapon (made of rubber). Used to simulate weight.

    2. I was stopped at approximately 1100, not 2 p.m..

    3. the “multiple officers” that arrived was 1 (one).

    4. Registered sex offenders can get closer to a school than I was. We were about 100 yards south of 6th ST and Wright Brothers when the officer was out with me.

    5. I do this to prepare my body for the strain of combat. I have been deployed twice and as we prepare for our third deployment to a combat zone, I feel it is important to be both physically and mentally prepared.

    Those are the facts. I hope, in the furture, that this news agency would check them before issuing a damaging and false story like this.

    For the record, when I was in the Iowa Guard back in the late 80s and early 90s, we did this stuff all the time and we had real weapons, not rubber ducks. My how times have changed.

  54. R.D. Walker says:

    He didn’t fall. He was stealing the hubcaps.

  55. Locke n Load says:

    Oh man RD, thats low. So low in fact I’m stealin it :)

  56. Locke n Load says:

    Hey Brad, that tune that was playing when we left the bar last night…
    Here it is. I think you’ll like the chorus. The band is actually a bunch of Libertarians but since they’re European I’m not sure if that actually means anything.

    This is a linc to the studio version..
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8KQmps-Sog&playnext_from=TL&videos=MPSOG8t9gmk&feature=rec-LGOUT-exp_fresh%2Bdiv-1r-2-HM

    However this one is SO much more rediculous. The Brits can be an odd lot, can’t they?
    B&E might be able to explain this for us…
    What the helll the song needed Dancing hottie fem-santas for is anybody’s guess.

  57. Locke n Load says:

    Hows that head feelin today Brad? I know I woke up dizzy.. btw, I had a police patrol watching me all night. He came by about every 15 minutes.
