    Hey RD, can you explain the Bot count to me? And why does it seem to spike when some of us post or go off on rants? Am I just paranoid?

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    Ah, the bots. There are good bots and there are bad bots. Search engine bots that make sure the Revo is in the big Card Catalog crawl the site. We like them. Then there are the spambots. They suck. There are also creepy, bots of unknown purpose.

    I haven’t noticed that bot activity correlates with our activity, however. I will look into it.

    Language. We all get a kick out of the mistakes made in translating other languages to English. Witness the website Engrish:

    Today I’ll tell you about the Twitter account for Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon. The screen name he chose is ‘@fecal’.

    http://twitter.com/fecal

  8. notamobster says:

    I guess we can expect to see some sh*t from that tweeter, huh? :-)

  9. Jim22 says:

    Yep. And apparently he’s been called that by his opponents for some time.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBTNcOpvwDI&feature=related

    My guess is he’s learned about the slur and is owning it.

    While on the subject; Islamic group dishes out more shit than town can handle.
    ——————————-
    The DuPage (Illinois) County Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday night overwhelmingly rejected a petition by an Islamic group to operate a religious center in unincorporated West Chicago.

    “I believe that it’s too intense a use of the property considering the septic field and the building itself and what they propose,” said board member Barry Ketter, addressing colleagues and a crowd of around 50 persons.

  11. notamobster says:

    The center would produce too much sh*t! I love it.

  12. R.D. Walker says:

    Sweet home, Chicago!

    Someone set fire to a van on the South Side last month and may have destroyed the Christmas hopes of hundreds of children.

    The charity Kidz Korna each Christmas gives away thousands of presents, but vandals last month set fire to the van they used to pick up donated toys.

    “The countdown is on for us,” said Delece Williams, the founder of the charity which helps children who’ve been exposed to violence and child abuse.

    Death, nothing less. I didn’t participate in the death penalty debate a few weeks back but had I, THIS would have been one of my justifications. The thought of this cretin contributing to the gene pool makes me want to throw shit.

  15. R.D. Walker says:

    Locke: Monsters like this make me a hypocrite on the issue.

  16. Locke n Load says:

    Don’t want the state to do the killing? Fine, I WILL.
    That help resolve the hypocrisy?

  17. notamobster says:

    As the father of 5 girls, this has me seeing red! I haven’t been this angry in a long, long time. Had I been there, I would have beat him to death with my bare hands and enjoyed it!

    I hope he gets raped to death with a rusty mop handle in the joint.

  18. Jim22 says:

    There is one of these stores where we shop. Since we carry a handgun when we go to town I would say that this POS would have found out the effectiveness of an armed American. In my county I would have been held overnight but would not have been prosecuted.

    One thing all Americans should do is learn the law about defensive shooting. If you live somewhere where the prosecutor will come after you for doing this dirtbag you should move to a different area.

    anyone wanna guess where mexico city gets its christmas trees?

    Now pick up the spare!

  22. Locke n Load says:

    Amazing, aint it? Almost 3000 miles by truck.

  23. R.D. Walker says:

    I remember when all the Christmas trees turned up in a parking lot on Guam. That was impressive.

  24. Locke n Load says:

    That must have been one hell of a truck!

  25. sortahwitte says:

    I served on a jury this week. It was the first time I have ever been called. The defendant was charged in 3 seperate crimes. Each crime involved a 1st degree burglary and a sex crime. He started with a 10 year old girl.(molestation) Next was a 17 year old girl.(sexual battery) His last was a 23 year old mother of 2.(rape) Through very good detective work, the crimes were solved.

    We found him guilty on 5 of the 6 counts. There wasn’t enough evidence beyond that doubt thing for the sexual battery. Of course after the trial was over, we found out his past history. He is a career criminal and a serial rapist. He was one of the people evacuated from New Orleans during and after the hurricane. After finding him guilty, we got to set the punishment within guidelines. The 1st degree burglary has a 20 year to life. We gave him life times 3. The molestation carries 6 to 10 years. We gave him 10. And so on. We have to wait until the official sentencing next week to see if they run consecutively or concurrently.

    For each life sentence, he will spend at least 38 years and 3 months in the maximum Oklahoma prison at McAlester. Also known as “big mac”. This prison has a reputation for taking care of child molesters.

    I physically hurt while each of these women took the witness stand. All 3 knew what it would take and did it.

    Please renew your promise to take care of your families. They need you so much. The devil is out there like a roaring lion, seeking to kill and maim.

  26. Locke n Load says:

    Our company has this annoying habit of asking us where we are every time we call in. I long ago tired of that nonsense so now, most of the time, they get 1 of 2 stock answers: Honolulu or Nome :)

  27. Locke n Load says:

    Damn Sorta…
    Dont you wish you could have added Castration by Rusty Steak Knife to the sentence?

  28. notamobster says:

    Louisiana has chemical castration for child molestors. It’s up to the judge on the first offense. Mandatory on the second. I think a 1″ hemp rope with a sweet adjustable knot at one end should be mandatory on the first offense.

  29. MadBrad says:

    Dateline: Jacksonville Florida – Brentwood – 1am.

    Some stupid white boys just came down to da Hood and were in the process of breaking into the vehicle I purchased less than 24 hours ago.

    They were unsuccessful as my many sentries that prowl the night ran them off and alerted me right before they came back to try it again. They now know what it is like to run from a man in his boxer shorts wielding a very impressive machete and accompanied by two very protective old dogs.

    Dumbass Crackuhs.

  30. MadBrad says:

    Okay RD, the kitten video is a little freaky. WTF is going on there?

  31. Nobody says:

    The kittens have myotonia congenita, sudden noises cause them to fall over.

    Also, what kind of dumbass white boys go down to Brentwood to break into cars in the middle of the night? That’s a good way to get shot, or cut, or shot and then cut and then shot again. Now they’re going to have to change their underwear.

  32. Locke n Load says:

    Ok, for the record, I WANT those cats! Is it completely irresponible of me to find that hillarious? I mean shoot, we don’t count on them as guard animals, right? I bet they’d be good for hours of entertainment at a stretch! Can you imagine the scene if you threw Scarface in the Blu-Ray player??

  33. R.D. Walker says:

    The kittens have exactly the same condition as these goats.

  34. MadBrad says:

    I had a girlfriend who had that condition.

  35. sortahwitte says:

    LnL and Nota.

    The defendant was a black man. Our jury included a black woman. As we entered the deliberation room, the first thing she said was “let’s hang him up and cut his nuts off.” I almost fell in love. You know how much I love strong women.

    My daughter-in-law is pregnant with my second grandchild. Does it make me sound older to talk about grandchildren as in plural?

    Actually, I am cool with being a grandfather. It does, however, freak me out a bit to be sleeping with a grandmother.

  39. Locke n Load says:

    congrats!! more tiny feet and hands to marvel at!

  40. notamobster says:

    Congratulations, Pappy Walker! Give the young man my best, please.

  41. R.D. Walker says:

    It’s always good to know for certain your kid is doing it right. Mine must be.

    Thank you all.

  42. sortahwitte says:

    Outstanding news, RD. Babies are the coolest people I know. My youngest grandchild is four now. During church, Mrs. Witte and I get to take turns caring for the babies. You all know I’m older than dirt but not as old as rocks. As time goes by however, the partnership and the loving just get better and better. 42 years and it looks like it will last. So, you whippersnappers just keep on loving and supporting each other. There may be snow on the roof, but there’s a hell of a fire in my shorts.

  43. R.D. Walker says:

    “There may be snow on the roof, but there’s a hell of a fire in my shorts.”

    There are four years between my younger son and my granddaughter.

  44. MadBrad says:

    Oh HELL YEAH! I must move to Iowa and find a woman who wants to bear a Battalion of Children for the good of mankind. Congratulations my Vulcan Brother. Pon Far runs strong in your family. Live long and prosper.

  45. R.D. Walker says:

    Iowa is a fertile land. Brad, remember RD Jr’s Basic/AIT graduation at Benning? The mother of my grandchildren was just a kid then…

    Ah, Christmas! The time of year we bring a dead, pine-sap soaked tree into the house, string it with watts and watts of cheap electrical lights and wiring, put a big old kindling pile of tissue paper wrapped gifts beneath it, light candles all over the place and invite people over to get drunk.

  52. Uke says:

    Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong!

    • R.D. Walker says:

      When my son completed RIP in December 2003, I drove down to get him and bring him home for Christmas. I drove straight through to Atlanta and MadBrad – who was working there at the time – put me up for the night in his apartment.

      I got to Benning in time to pin his Ranger scroll on my son’s shoulder. When we got home, he stuck it up on the tree. It has had an honored place there every Christmas since. I just took this a minute ago.

  53. notamobster says:

    That’s awesome.

  54. sortahwitte says:

    Outstanding!

  55. notamobster says:

    That’s Ranger-riffic!!!

    (oh yeah, I posted it again!)

  56. R.D. Walker says:

    Chilly this morning. My digital thermometer reads 2.9° F.

  57. notamobster says:

    You know what drives me f-king nuts? The way these democraps frame the tax cut argument. They say that a tax cut is gonna cost the government money. That means they start with the presumption that the money is theirs!

    They f-king suck!

  58. R.D. Walker says:

    Democrats: “If we don’t raise taxes it is going to cost the government umpteenbazillion dollars. We can’t afford that.”

    Mugger: “If I don’t kick your ass and steal your billfold, it is going to cost me the $62 you have on you. I can’t afford that.”

  59. Uke says:

    Chris Matthews actually attesting to our position on this specific matter still makes me wonder if I’d wandered into the twilight zone.

  60. notamobster says:

    I know Uke, I saw that a few different times…twilight zone, indeed.

    Senator John Cornyn just said the same thing I did on FoxNews. He said “…this idea that the money already belongs to the government is flawed and wrong….The Democrats need to cut the lame duck session short and go home.”

    Did you guys see that two congress-whores said “it’s time for the people to take up pitchforks!”

    As always, “bring it on, bedwetters!”
    :-)

  61. 95 FLTC says:

    THAT has been the root of the problem, since the days of Davy Crockett….no, not this one

    and definitely NOT this one

    but THIS one… http://www.lsjunction.com/people/crockett.htm

    His dealing with constituents at that point in time was classic. One of his conversations with a voter…who was not happy with him…stemmed from Congress’s proposed use of government funds to help support the widow of a deceased admiral.

    “while noble, Mr Crockett, the farmer replied, it was never Congresses money to spend…it belongs to the taxpayer”

    Crockett took this back to the assembly, and after much deliberation, the money was NOT appropriated for that purpose. Somehow the widow did receive help…only, she got it from local institutions like her church, friends, and the like. NOT her government.

    And THIS was probably one of the first attempts to socialize the people….thank GOD we had men with common sense back then, AND the moral courage to do something about it!!!

    Revo Safety Tip for the Day:

    If your son is arrested for getting into an armed standoff with the SWAT team, don’t let him back into your house.

    Good God, Van… can you imagine having to make a decision like that? That’s just miserable.

  64. sortahwitte says:

    95, the New Testament is very clear. The job of taking care of the widows and orphans is at the feet of the local church. Once again, our disobedience to Him has far reaching consequences.

    Apparently, having the DRD4 gene means you are less likely to remain faithful to your spouse.

    Damnit! i finally get on Levins show and i couldn’t sneak in a Revo plug!!!!

  69. notamobster says:

    I watched Glenn Beck today:

    He HAS to have folks reading this site. He HAS to! He covered a few topics that we pounded out days ago. He uses terminology which is eerily similar to some of the authors here when describing the stories found here.

    At the very least, we are on the leading edge of issues relevant to the cause! Bravo Revoistas!!! Bravo.

  70. Uke says:

    /pat

    I’m sure you did everything you could, LnL.

  71. Uke says:

    “He uses terminology which is eerily similar to some of the authors here when describing the stories found here.”

    Well shit, that’s just going to make me read all of RD’s posts in GB’s voice now.

  72. Locke n Load says:

    sorry RD, i’ll get it in next time. i’ll use my revo handle, he’ll ask about it for sure

  73. R.D. Walker says:

    I appreciate the effort, Locke!

    Beck says somebody sent it to him but they probably sent the link, right. The picture has our URL on it.
