November Begins

Halloween Corner

GHOST SEX... A professor at the University was giving a lecture on Paranormal Studies. To get a feel for his audience, he asks, 'How many people here believe in ghosts?' About 90 students raise their hands. Well, that's a good start. Out of those who believe in ghosts, do any of you think you have seen a ghost?' About 40 students raise their hands. That's really good. I'm really glad you take this seriously. Has anyone here ever talked to a ghost?' About 15 students raise their hand. Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?' Three students raise their hands. That's fantastic. Now let me ask you one question further...Have any of you ever made love to a ghost?' 

Way in the back, a young Middle Eastern student raises his hand. The professor takes off his glasses and says 'Son, all the years I've been giving this lecture, no one has ever claimed to have made love to a ghost. You've got to come up here and tell us about your experience.' The Middle Eastern student replied with a nod and a grin, and began to make his way up to the podium. When he reached the front of the room, the professor asks, 'So, dear, tell us what it's like to have sex with a ghost?' The Middle Eastern student replied, "Wallah Habibi, from back there I thought you said "Goats."

Christmas Shopping

I haven't started. Christmas displays have been up in Costco since August and the serious marketing will begin today. Retailers make their year in the next 60 days and I get it. But the social demand of the Season is burdensome to me. I feel like writing a couple dozen checks and dropping them in the mail to make everyone happy -- but it wouldn't be enough and they wouldn't be happy. They're always more content when I buy something that costs thrice what it should and is sure to end up in landfill by Spring. (bah, humbug)

Thanksgiving is another thing all together. What's not to like about football games, a nice turkey/ham dinner and pumpkin pie with real whipped cream on it?

Travel Schedule

busy travel schedule in November
This also begins the final travel/work push before things get too insane (worldwide) and I will be wrapping things up before the end of the month, which means there's not going to be much blogging on my part in December. At the moment, I don't know that I will have time to get to the White Wolf Mine this month, so you know that it's nuts. Anyway, if I don't surface that often, you know why.

I need to pay the bills and I must amass enough scratch to cover Phase 2 at the building project. I'd be surprised if Phase 2 is complete next year, but work now, play later.

In my consulting work, there is a constant push-pull regarding work for USGOV. I prefer not to work for them. Knowing who to call in the White House is one thing. Taking their shilling is another thing all together. My partners are conspiring to "convince LL to take USGOV work". They haven't been very convincing at all. Corporate money is far richer, they pay on time, and they're grateful. USGOV is the opposite in all respects. I admit that it was worse under Barack/Hillary and crooks than it is now - but government is government, my friends.

Muslims

A friend asked my reaction to the recent Muslim attack in New York City. I replied that a nation that tolerates Muslim immigration (a political system, far more than a faith) to any significant degree needs to expect that they will kill people for fun and profit on a regular basis as a tribute to their savage faith.

Said friend asked if I'd get in an Uber with a beard like that driving. I explained that I'd done it before but I had the Ruger Super Redhawk with heavy penetration loads (454 Casull) in hand when I did. Being able to punch through the plexiglass (safety screen) and through the skull of the beard (break glass in the event of an emergency) gave me a measure of confidence. 

Sometimes I arrive in a city by air and the local only has a .45 ACP to hand me while I'm in town. In that case, I don't drive in a car/limo operated by a beard. The formula is simple. Any culture that extols the value of having sex with a goat, camel or other animal and glorifies in sexually mutilating its young girls as a cultural standard needs to be displaced back home as far as I'm concerned.

I am tolerant of all religions (including the odious ones), but we know Muslims by their works. Where is Charles Martel when we need him?

Nuclear Weapons

Iran is crowing that it will soon have a nuclear weapon and missile delivery system to hit any US base in the Middle East.  President Trump needs to remind the beards that we can hit their shit-pot sand hole from anywhere on the globe with the push of a button. 

The North Koreans plan to test their nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, spreading fall-out. That should be interesting. China has recently reversed its policy toward South Korea's THAAD (missile defense) system. That's something I didn't think that we'd see.

I don't know what the trip wire is currently in regard North Korea but I still expect things to happen this winter to resolve the situation by kinetic means.
