Heading into an Early Weekend

The Back Yard

I was up at the White Wolf Mine and they're still not finished with it, but they should be, once I'm back from Hawaii. The photo (right) is a panoramic view taken from the deck. The evergreens are ever-green even in winter while the brush and grass has lost its vibrant colors. 

Things happen in the larger world while the Arizona Highlands let it pass without comment. One change in the world is set forth below:

The Rise of the Mangina

Eastern Michigan University’s Women’s Resource Center (WRC) has decided to stop hosting The Vagina Monologues because it excludes some women…such as females who don’t have vaginas. Since copyright laws won’t allow them to change the dialogue, the school has chosen to get rid of it.

Bruce Jenner became woman of the year, with his courting tackle intact, demonstrating that you can be a famous women while retaining your male parts. Now the Vagina Monologues, a program where women stand in front of a group of people and discuss their lady parts - is ending. As it should. Suggesting that women have female genitalia is inherently sexist.

Ok, enough of that. Who cares about lady boys really?

Other things popped up for the weekend.

The Crisis

I received a telephone call from a friend while I was on the road yesterday. "LL, I need your help with a problem:"

LL - Your problem or somebody else's?

R - Somebody else's.

LL - It is Thanksgiving week.

R - I know.

LL - I don't do anything illegal.

R - I know.

LL - What's the problem?

R - A lady is in custody in Tijuana, Mexico, and we need her out.

LL - Why is that my problem.....(tick tock)..... What are the charges? You realize that the border is a mess with the caravans arriving from the interior, and the US has temporarily closed some border crossings.

R - It's an illegal immigration issue - into Mexico. She's in custody and the Mexican officials are trying to extort cash, slapping her in the face and denying soap. It's what they do.

(I don't do immigration issues, but this thing is a can of worms) I can get her made a Mexican permanent resident quickly if that's what it takes, but this situation transcends that.

LL - How much are they willing to pay me?

R - (Quotes a ridiculously high fee + expenses) And they want her out before Thanksgiving. 

LL - For that much, I'm in.

A person is flying into San Diego tonight on a Gulfstream with cash. I get paid up front. So much for the holiday weekend coming up - and maybe Hawaii, following. You see, cash is the universal lubricant. Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Mexico and this problem is a big old mess, that stretches ACROSS the border. I'll be working on the long weekend before I leave for Hawaii.

  1. Just be safe with that big ol' Bag-O-Cash that's getting dropped off.....

    1. I do things that have an inherent risk, DRJIM. But I am also the heavily armed soul of caution.

    2. I have no doubt of that, LL.

      Just keep your head on a swivel.....

    3. I would write a book, but nobody would believe it.

  2. The view at the WWM is beautiful. Manginas? Oh, dear Lord, what in the world are these sorry deviants going to come up with next. As to the "crisis," watch your back and keep it in the ten spot.

    1. I'd be broke if it wasn't for crisis situations. The rule is: Money up front.

    2. Good rule, but just be around to spend it is also a good rule. Stay safe.

  3. Eastern is roughly three miles from where I reside.
    I love Ypsilanti and it's history, but it is a liberal flake town these days. City Council has a BLM flag on it's walls.

    1. Better than a PLO Flag (popular in San Francisco and Austin).

      Delete
    2. In today's topsy-turvy world, a BLM flag is worse than a PLO flag. You can fire a PLO operative.

      Delete
    3. You can also garrote a PLO operative if you're outside of the US and not subject to the laws of the US of A. BLM are usually US citizens and are protected by law even outside of the US.

      But if we get another justice on the Supreme Court (replacement for RBG), we might get hunting licenses for BLM...open season and no bag limit.

  4. Nice view. Beautiful country.
    Manginas? Good gawd!
    Watch your six.

    1. The mangina problem is significant in university towns, and it's an epidemic in liberal enclaves. I'm thrilled that I'm not a young man out on the prowl these days, needing a DNA test from a date to insure that she was born a woman...

  5. So. That is why they do, in fact, pay you the big bucks.

    "There is always someone willing to pay".

    Not to imply that that is your line of work.

    That view at WWM looks it would surely wash away the cares of the world.

  6. I looked out on your lead infographic and it filled me with peace, the tranquility of God's order, if you like. But there was a small cloud on the horizon, I thought SINEMA.

    Then BOOM, Mangina and the satanic insanity of the Left came crashing in.

    Well, we fight against principalities and powers.

    Careful with that cash, Mr. Wolf.

    1. The situation in TJ is worse than I thought. I never take money down - always the full amount. But in this case, because the whole thing is very fishy, I told the client to pay me 20% non-refundable to look into the whole matter further. That's me being a chump, I guess, but I try to be honest. 20% is still a lot of money.

    1. It's not my talent. I just am well referenced and know a lot of people.

  8. If I read this right, an American woman illegally crossed into Mexico? Not too smart, perhaps she needs to stay there... but there is the cash incentive. Just be safe.

    1. Oh, it's more than that, the cartels are involved and if things go as indicated, it will be fuerzas de Marinas vs cartels. But it's a can of worms.

  9. EMU: I am glad to see that the vipers are fanging one another. (Nothing personal against EMU; they'd have been considered a perfectly good university were they not literally next door to the University of Michigan.)

    Mexico: you clearly lead a MUCH more interesting life than I do. Me, in between my "real work" I'm sitting here reviewing manuscripts submitted to various cardiology and medical imaging journals. There are more submissions from Mainland China these days (mostly of poor quality, scientifically speaking; tortured Engrish is pretty much a given). But I am having fun in that I have managed to legitimately work the term "baizuo" into two "Comments to Authors" sections so far. It's not as if one gets paid for doing peer reviews (it is a sort of "academic service" for which the "payoff" is being "in the club" and hopefully keeping on the good side of the journal Editors-in-Chief, who DO get paid something) so I might as well have fun with it, and if I get kicked out by the EiC then it's less work for me.

    Stay safe -- as possible under the circumstances.

    1. I think that you're living the life that you want to live, Mike C. That's no small thing. Stay in the club, representing those of us who are clearly not in it.

  10. Hey, when you get here (Hawaii) drop me a line. I'll buy you a good cup of coffee.

  11. Latin America in general seems to be declining with Mexico doing better than its neighbors. Nicaragua is close to revolution. The narcos are the only thing that's keeping the economies of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala going, Coca Cola Co. owns Belize (most of the land) and they seem to be keeping "British Honduras" limping along. Panama is Panama, and laundering keeps a lot of the investments there vibrant (as vibrant as it can be in Latin America). As you know, I've done demo-fire work on the rigs and have been there off and on. No more. Too much trouble these days.

    Good luck Scary Larry,
