    Just so you know. In the Terminator saga…

    …Sarah Connor is on the run with her son John after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The events take place in an alternate timeline from that of Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines. Skynet was now implemented on April 19, 2011 and will begin its attack against humanity on April 21.

    Enjoy April 20th…

    I’m reading you Lima Charlie Locke & Load. I want to see what you assemble. It will no doubt be very engaging.

    FUCK SKY NET!

    In the meantime… Try not to hurt yourself or otherwise get in trouble with THIS

    Have to rant here.

    I’m pissed, it’s official, I’m an old fart. My ear and nose hair is growing like fucking bamboo.

    I feel like Tim Allen in The Santa Claus.

    This sucks.

    weird. the “revo writers” hyperlinks have vanished….

  11. R.D. Walker says:

    They have been gone since the Great Site Crash of March 31st. Fixing them is on my to-do list.

    maybe if I wasn’t doing 800 mile days for a week and a half I might have noticed earlier. That last trip into canada left me needing to catch up! Still can’t believe the RDM has already bailed on the S&P rating warning already… And to think I asked you guys to keep a lid on shit while I was gone :)

  13. Locke n Load says:

    Btw, this story has me laughing my ass off. I’m guessing you’ve heard an earful about it already.

    http://theiowarepublican.com/home/2011/04/20/university-of-iowa-professor-tells-college-republicans-to-%E2%80%9Cf%E2%80%9D-off/

    I especially like the “you can’t use ‘coming out’” angle. What a bitchy dyke.

  14. R.D. Walker says:

    Locke: If you go down into the comments section of the article in your link, you will see that one “RD Walker” has been commenting on that thread.

  15. sortahwitte says:

    RD, I read the thread of you and the moron. The door stop was unarmed in a battle of wits. Light the bonfire! Victory bash!

  16. Locke n Load says:

    you’re either an incredibly fast typist or you have one hell of a lot more time on your hands than me :) that was a fun read. tough At 75mph but fun.

    i was more than a little embarrassed for most of the commenters. most cant spell their way out of a 3rd grade bee. which of course leads me to believe Amishdude -who could spell- is Van or AW, lol.

  17. notamobster says:

    I have to throw a bullshit flag on the original email:

    “Whose a Conservative anyway”… Really???? These are college edumacated jeenyusses?

    That’s 2nd or 3rd grade English, at best…

  18. notamobster says:

    AmishDude was Locke….

    “bwahahahahaha” gave it away.

    There are only 3 or 4 of us who use that term….. I use it because you got me into it….

  19. notamobster says:

    This entire comment thread was the intellectual equivalent of the WWF challenging the Deep South East Coast Smoky Mountain I Have A Trampoline In My Yard Pro Wrestling Club.

    Mr. “I’ve been in college for 12 years and my toughest classes were Anthropology” is an “R-tard” (pronounced are-tard by my 16 year old, B-average student who will fare better in the real world than he….) needs to spend some of his parent’s cash on a bribe, because the only job he’s getting is a “public service” job.

    That was SUPER-entertaining. Thank you gents.

  20. MadBrad says:

    Nice analogy there Nota, very old school and encyclopedic. You need to come on out of the closet now. I have embraced my inner-kid and I celebrate it.

  21. jacksonsdad says:

    “As for you Brian, be nice to people like my daughter. If you are very, very fortunate she- as your boss’s boss – might deign to offer you a McJob appropriate for your educational credentials.”

    LMFAO! Haiku-like flow coupled with surgical precision… almost makes you feel bad for the recipient of such a poetic beheading. How economical and compact is “McJob” in this context?

    I CAN CHECK THIS DOUCHEBAG INTO THE SMACK-DOWN HOTEL WITH 5 LETTERS!

    Good stuff RD. Assassin efficiency with a mint left on the pillow. Classic.

  22. sortahwitte says:

    I took the beer test. 12/15. and I don’t drink anymore.

    Speaking of spelling, I volunteered to monitor the yearly standardized tests for our jr. high. (or whatever it’s now called) Last week and this I observed 4 different teachers. When I picked up all the paperwork to return it to the office, it was obvious that 2 of them could not spell. They were words that as a 4th grader if I got them wrong, my fingers got the side of a supersonic ruler.

  23. R.D. Walker says:

    When my older son was in first grade his teacher sent home a note regarding his progress. It contained this gem:

    “Has trouble with sentences.”

    I wasn’t surprised.

  24. TN_Cat says:

    Last week my son came home from school with this gem from his English teacher:

    “ya ain’t gonna get good grades if ya ain’t gonna study”

  25. Locke n Load says:

    2 weeks.
    that is all

  26. Locke n Load says:

    oh, btw.
    hate to break it to ya Nota but I wasn’t Amish dude. If it was any of us I’d guess Van. An amish guy with a computer? Tat’s Vans style of wry satire :)

  28. Jim22 says:

    Just in from the WSJ:

    Nevada Republican John Ensign will resign from the U.S. Senate effective May 3,
    a statement on the politician’s website said Thursday. He will formally submit
    his resignation on Friday.

    Mr. Ensign, who had admitted in 2009 to having an extramarital affair with the
    wife of a former staffer, said he wouldn’t seek re-election in 2012. The
    Senate’s ethics committee has been investigating the affair.

    heres a revolution i could support..
    if this is true it would be a signal of deep fractures in ahmmadickweed’s support. maybe iran doesn’t want to find that hidden Imam?

    • notamobster says:

      Locke (numbers guy): What are the chances (in bizarro world) that CIA foments riots, etc… throughout the middle east… to increase action in Iran? You read stratfor… We’ve been trying forever to gain an inroad into Iran… Is it possible that they have pushed etc, etc, etc…. in conjunction with Iran – trying to make inroads?

  30. notamobster says:

    My Kiersten’s report card…ahem… “Achievement Report” said:

    “Kiersten is doing a great job in language arts. She is also good in math. She is a joy to have in class.”

    A Nota Kid who is performing well in language arts? I can accept that.

    One of same, who is good in math? hmmm…. I begin to question the value of our educational system…

    TN: You’re in Tennessee for chris’sake.

  31. Locke n Load says:

    Ya know Nota, you make an interesting point regarding tipping Irans falafel cart BUT I’d imagine the odds are abysmally low the CIA would attempt such a wide ranging operation in order to spread the ‘democracy’ bug to Persia. I can see them trying in Syria and Iran but to try and set up an African domino reaction? The CIA has had its head jammed up its butt for quite some time now. I’m trying to remember the last revolution they actually anticipated. Or admitted to anticipating.

    Look at it another way. Obama doesn’t really have a beef with Iran, their goals actually run parallel to a point. But I don’t know what Obama actually thinks of the Arabs other than rich dudes whose ass he has to kiss. Yet the house of Saud is the eventual target of the Brotherhood. The rest of the little pieces on the chessboard he probably regards as chattel. Egypt tho.. Egypt I totally see him wanting flipped to the crazies. All the better to get arms to the Palestinian whackos.
    So assuming he wants Israel gone he would want to see Iran stable enough to continue supporting Hamas, right? And all of this speculation assumes Obama is actually more clever than we ever gave him credit for…hard to swallow. My guess would be if the CIA is stirring that Persian Shia pot they’re working a continuing op, something that began long before Obama took over. I’d also bet they’re furious about hanging the Pharoah out to dry. I doubt the CIA wants the Saudi family in any danger so if anything they’ve been fighting the brotherhood AND Iran. Meaning they’re anti-revolution in Africa but pro-Iranian chaos.

  32. Locke n Load says:

    Sorry man, thats the best this skull of mush can accomplish after an accidental 900 mile day. Ugh.

  33. Locke n Load says:

    Ya know, something folks should understand whenever we get into that fucked up chessboard and power structures; as much as the Saudis are a pain in the ass double edged sword they’re a vital ally in our fight to keep the Nukes contained in that region. They take a lot of bad press while still helping us maintain the power balance over there and thats what this is really all about. Tying oil to the dollar is a concession they made for a price. We have mutual enemies and obligations that run deeper than most acknowledge the need for. Everything the world calls modern depends on their stability unless/until we get our sorry asses energy independent again. Whats more, even IF we get energy independent that wouldn’t make the region less important to the world economy. They may only account for 15% of our usage but they provide Europe and China’s lifeblood. One falls, all fall.

    Chris Rock on Donald Trump:

    “I won’t vote for him. I’m afraid he’ll leave us for a younger, prettier country.”

  35. R.D. Walker says:

    Yet another Supersized McBeating…

    The manager encourages the attackers to flee before the police arrive. He can certainly defend this advice as simply a way to remove the dangerous individuals from the scene. However, it would have been more convincing if it was combined with a modicum of concern for the victim.

  36. SemperFi says:

    In regards to the McD’s video…

    Let this kind of shit happen any where I am around and they would be burying at least three worthless fucks.

    After some further thought on the subject I wonder if we shouldn’t be funding Planned Parenthood with more tax dollars…

  39. BaconNeggs says:

    Just looking at the McBeating Video and the old lady have more stones than that f–ked up McD. coward who did nothing to protect the victim of that 3 miniute plus attack inside of McD.

    No doubt about it, the “guy” in blue is a POS.

  40. Locke n Load says:

    Just when you think you could never hit a girl.. Just imagine how good it would feel planting a bone crushing first in either of those animals faces

  41. jacksonsdad says:

    Just ran across this … foolin’ around during a tropical storm a few years ago.

  42. jacksonsdad says:

    crap. sorry for messin’ it up RD. I suck. I know.

    Feel free to delete that post (and this one).

    Thanks bro.

    Hey… two weeks from today I hope to be rolling into Memphis right around this time of day. I’m hopin’ they’ll let me check in a lil’ early so I can get my nap on.

  43. R.D. Walker says:

    Fixed.

  44. notamobster says:

    I have no issue with hitting an animal…regardless of gender.

  45. TN_Cat says:

    Video takes me back to high school. The only difference is the white girl would have been suspended for getting her hair tangled up the other two girls fists.

  46. Mark says:

    Agreed TN_Cat,

    The video reminds me of Elementary, Middle and High School growing up in Savannah. The libs had a brillant idea of busing the suburban kids to the inner city schools as part of force integration. As a result, the racial violence; all one way (Black on White) was very prevalent. I was mostly spared (thank you Jesus), but did have a few run-ins that were all unprovoked. The school was not interested in correcting the problem the forced integration created. This reminds me of the axiom: Diversity + Proximity = War.

    I have forgiven; as that is what is required of me from my Lord. However, I have never forgot, and am always wise to avoid placing myself in situations where this is a potential.

  47. notamobster says:

    I learned a few years back, to not put myself into situations where shit like that happens.

  48. TN_Cat says:

    When your a kid, you don’t have a choice in avoiding the situation at school. Late 70, our school was one of the gloriously diverse schools. The school would never discipline a black student so they knew they could get away with anything. (like our DOJ today). One of my buddies was bullied for a week straight in gym class by a group. Come Friday, the rest of us met them in the locker room to even up the numbers and went to work.
    We got suspended for two weeks (they didnt of course) but it was worth it. They never bothered us again.

    Sad to say, that’s what it’s going to take to stop this madness today.

  49. R.D. Walker says:

    I was deprived of diversity as a child. We had no diversity at all unless you mean we had both Catholics and Lutherans. We had fights and bullying of course, it just never rose to the level of anybody getting really hurt.

  50. R.D. Walker says:

    I can find NOTHING about where that beating took place. Why? Is it fake? I am wondering. Was the victim a man in drag getting his ass kicked for using the lady’s room? WTF?

  51. TN_Cat says:

    I don’t see diversity as the problem. It’s the discriminate application of the rules. I blame the school district for the racial tension and the way they would or would not enforce the rules based on color. I don’t blame the black kids, like any kid they pushed the limits of rules. Smoking dope in class, beating up other kids and teachers. If the school would have done the job they were supposed to, it would have made for a better environment.

  52. Mark says:

    The following is not hyperbole.

    I learned very little attending public schools in Savannah, as my main goal was survival. All of my pre-college education was in schools that were majory black population. You learn quickly to either fade into the background (my method mostly) or go along with the dominate culture (my other strategy). I devoted very little time to educational pursuits (I failed the 9th grade).
    The focus of my prayers at night was for protection the next day.
    Once in college (barely met criteria for admission to a local college), I flourished because my attention was no longer occupied by survival. I subsequently went to medical school, completed residency and am in my 9 year of private practice.

    I sometimes think of all the wasted potential out there in our public schools.

  53. R.D. Walker says:

    One of the guys says “That’s a man!” in the video (1:25). I am starting to think that a guy in drag was using the women’s room and the two black girls beat his ass for doing it. It would also explain why the men stand around and laugh.

    If I am right, the two attackers are in real trouble now. They have a hate crime on their hands.

    It is still fucked up.

    Or it still could be a hoax. Something is making my bullshit sensor go off.

  54. Mark says:

    That is interesting RD; I need to look at the video again.

    However, the body frame, voice (when protesting) and hair suggest a female.

  55. R.D. Walker says:

    I could be wrong, but something about this seems weird. What’s with the wig? When do young white girls wear wigs? At right around 1:00 it seems like the victim says, “Where am I supposed to go?”

  56. notamobster says:

    I grew up in the same fucked up shithole you did, TN. When my mother (the crackhead) went to prison in Ypsilanti, we went to foster care. When she got out, we lived in some of the nastiest, low-rent shitholes I’ve ever seen.

    I was lucky enough to go to high school in the U.P. in a tiny town full of working folks.

    I spent a few years being conflicted about my identity as a man (trying to be gangsta)…but managed to sort things out by following the guidance of men better than myself (my Dad and Grandpa) once I had kids.

    I’ve fought for every inch of my white skin and regardless of what anyone thinks about the correctness of my statement – I AM PROUD TO BE WHITE.

    I don’t subscribe to any supremacist beliefs or ideals, but there is nothing wrong with being proud of who you are, either.

    My comment inre: situations was in reference to my need to hit an animal nowadays, and regarding my better judgment now. I should’ve been more clear.

  57. notamobster says:

    Why is the past tense of pay, paid…while the past tense of pray, prayed?

  58. BaconNeggs says:

    >>I AM PROUD TO BE WHITE. <<

    And not a damn thing wrong that or the need to justify your racial pride either Nota.

    Just checking out the extremes people have gone to show their devotion to Christ today.

    I remember going to little Italy a couple times and seeing the Good Friday parades, "Christ" bearing a cross and "Roman soldiers" but some off these "Passion" events today, with being aniled to the cross is taking it to the extreme and look more like "Shite".

  59. R.D. Walker says:

    Well, the McBeatdown is now being covered in the local media in Baltimore. It looks like my BS sensor was giving me false readings. It would appear that the victim is a woman and the assault is real.

    Sick, sick, sick. I guess I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

  60. Jim22 says:

    Anybody had any experience with the new Ruger LC9? Looks like a carry piece.

  61. TN_Cat says:

    RD
    That was chunks of hair torn from the scalp, not a wig. Pretty discusting shit.

    Nota
    I understood completely your post. No need to justify it. We all do exactly what you say. We stay away from areas we are not welcome. So the shit holes remain shit holes and ghettos remain ghettos because those with means to pay fear for their lives to go anywhere near these places.

  62. sortahwitte says:

    Jim.
    I have a friend with a FFL. He recently bought one(LC9) for himself and one for his wife. His thinking is in a firefight, they could toss mags to each other. Not kidding. He really likes his, but I have not got to try it. He does say it is the easiest pistol he’s ever owned to conceal. Just light enough, just small enough. Others might drag out the old 9mm argument, but I have several and 9s work for me.

  63. BaconNeggs says:

    Today is St Georges Day, the patron Saint of England.

    I didnt even realise it at first when I saw English Red and white bunting across a pub while I was driving in my small town, and thought perhaps they started early with the Royal weeding hype. But later on, walking through the Abbey where Capt. James Cook got married I saw more yet Easter decorations and finally heard it mentioned… Ah ha, St Georges day!

    But I find the strangeness of History rather amusing, after all if Irelands Patron St Patrick is actually English then the very English Patron Saint George must surely be …Syrian/Palestinian.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George

  64. Jim22 says:

    Sorta,

    Thanks. Don’t quite understand the ‘toss magazines to each other’ justification. The LC9 only comes with one seven-round magazine. If I was worried about ammo supply I’d get something with higher capacity.

    Better still, practice so you can hit what you want to hit. 7+1 is a lot of shooting.

    Even better would be a shotgun.

  65. slinger says:

    I have the LCP, which I carry every single day. It is not the stopper that my 3″ 45 is, but it is a heck of a lot easier to carry and conceal. I was looking pretty strongly at the LC9 because I really like my LCP, and 9 would be an improvement over 380.

    IIRC, the KelTec PF-9 is actually smaller, lighter, and cheaper than the LC9. I have heard it said that the PF-9 is actually “too light” for the 9mm, which makes it harder to control. If that’s the case, perhaps the LC9 weight is an improvement.

    I do like the fit and finish better on a Ruger than KelTec. I really wish my LCP came in stainless because spending every day in my pocket sweat is taking its toll on the finish.

  66. Jim22 says:

    I, too, have an LCP. Loaded with Buffalo Bore hollow points it’s pretty potent for a .380. It’s the same thing with the LCP, though. Full power ammo makes it a little hard to handle. The finger rest on later magazines helps, though.

    Both the LCP and the LC9 come with one magazine and extra ones are about $30 each.

    The 9mm is not much more powerful than what I have. I think all handguns are underpowered but better than knuckles.

  67. notamobster says:

    Might I suggest (again) this marvel of American ingenuity:

    http://www.serbu.com/top/superShorty.php

    Where there’s a law, there’s a loophole.

  68. sortahwitte says:

    Jim,
    my friend is the type that feels one magazine is a way to get killed. He always purchases 4 or 5 with any new weapon.

  69. R.D. Walker says:

    I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

    Never, ever question the razor sharp instinct of the Revo blogmaster! NEVER.

    The attack was believed to have been sparked after an argument over using a bathroom in the restaurant.

    ‘It does appear that the victim was a transgender woman, and she was brutalised while people stood by and watched,’ Lisa Polyak, vice president of the board of directors for Equality Maryland, told the Baltimore Sun.

    The LGBT group is now calling on police to investigate the attack as a hate crime.

    I see all, Revoistas. I see all.

    Behold, Ginger Tina Louise.

    You know me by now. Either or both.

    Why can’t I have both? Its a modern world and all…

    “bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!”

  78. Locke n Load says:

    Fuck it, they both look great for 100. or whatever

  79. R.D. Walker says:

    Bwahahahaha! \
    Um, did I miss some must watch TV in my self imposed boycott?

  81. notamobster says:

    “The Vulcan” misses nothing, Sir.

    Nothing.

  82. notamobster says:

    heeheehee…

    Okay, so Ginger still looks cute being 115 yrs old… I’ll give you that.

  83. jacksonsdad says:

    Mary Ann 100% every time. I hate those high maintenance beauty queens. Most of the time, once you get all the fake shit off ‘em, they look like a warmed over turd.

    The true test is what she looks like when she wakes up first thing in the AM. You should never allow your brain-power to ‘rose-color’ that image. Many a man has willfully deceived himself with fake hair and fake eyelashes and high heels and make-up… and those things are all wonderful when used appropriately… but there’s no escaping the morning light.

    Of course, if you can GTF out before dawn then, by all means (any means necessary), make a run at Ginger.

  84. Locke n Load says:

    That link is hilarious RD. I got one of those eggs a few weeks back for the hell of it and they aren’t half bad. Best quote from the gallery:

    Son, we live in a world that has borders. And those borders have to be guarded by men with clipboards. Who’s gonna do it? You, Mr Steyn? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for lost kinder eggs and you curse the Border Patrol. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that the loss of the kinder eggs, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives…You don’t want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that border. You need me on that border.

    We use words like confectionery, embedded, non-nutritive…we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use ‘em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very anti-choking safeguards I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide them! I’d rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a clipboard and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a daamn what you think you’re entitled to!

  85. notamobster says:

    Oh, that’s an instant classic, Locke.

  88. Locke n Load says:

    RD, your instincts were amazing in this one but i have to ask. Is a guy who had a peterectomy and hormone treatment really a guy?

  89. R.D. Walker says:

    The morality of the situation is unchanged. I am not in anyway justifying it. I just thought the men standing around were acting exactly like I would expect them to act if females were beating up a male.

    Again, nothing changes. It was still animalistic.

  90. Locke n Load says:

    No Q its a barbaric display. Just amazed you were tuned into the reason the employees and bystanders watched instead of intervening. Me, I wouldn’t give a shit if they were wailing on a tranny, i’d have still put those 2 animals thru a window.

  91. R.D. Walker says:

    I agree.

  92. notamobster says:

    Yep. Two people beating someone down is wrong, no matter who or what the reason.
