Mope gets points for being the first to send news.
I have to admit, I am really enjoying the Occupy-Wall-Street-But-Over-At-Zucotti-Park protests. I am happy about them for two main reasons. First, they have every right to exercise their freedom of assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. I find it hialrious that they are addressing Wall Street instead of Pennsylvania Avenue, but it’s their right. Second, by protesting, they reveal their true colors. For instance, take a look at this video:
Calling for a violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie. That’s just one clip. Now take what happened to our blogger friend, Snarky Basterd. Snarky has a Twitter account, and this is what he got as a response from an OWS protester:
If you had doubts about the so-called peaceful protest, they should be gone now. This is a threat of physical harm to any and all people of not just a certain “race”, but those who actually differ in opinion from the protester. Stalin talked this way. Mao talked this way. Hitler probably didn’t. He let his minions do the talking. But the really psychopathic thing of it all, is the protester himself. Not long after Snarky spread the tweet around, @MrHortonscycles changed his moniker. Like any female, I was overcome with curiosity, so I traced him to his new moniker, and found this:
Yes, he misspelled the “socialist” part. He claims that Twitter didn’t allow for that many characters, oblivious to the fact that he did use all the letters in the word, just in the wrong order. I laughed at first, because he has threats posted to pretty much everyone who calls him out. But then I sobered up to the fact that this guy actually believes he doesn’t say threatening things. That is far more dangerous, because he has no morals to guide his reasoning. His ilk will be happy to lay waste to anyone who gets in his way, as long as he gets his way. What he doesn’t understand is, he is the fodder the Left will use to get their way. He is nothing but a useful, idiotic, sacrificial sheep to the altar of Marxism.
He doesn’t seem to grasp that we are getting ready. We will not back down. And our version of “gun control” is to hit center mass.
Thanks also to Conservative Hideout 2.0 for the call to arms, as it were
Fall is in the air! Well, not really around here, though the summertime temperatures of over 100* F have gone the way of the dodo. Still, it’s autumn regardless of the burning ball in the sky. And with autumn comes a change in girlie drinks and BOOZE** at Casa de Aggie. I move from “light and refreshing” to “warm and comforting”. By “warm” I mean syrupy and thick, not necessarily warm in temperature. I’m in Texas, not Wisconsin. So, I give you the Girlie Drink of the Week, by way of a Time Machine*:
- 1 ½ oz. Brandy
- 1 oz. Dark Creme de Cacao
- 1 oz. Half-n-Half
- ¼ tsp Grated Nutmeg
In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the brandy, creme de cacao, and half-and-half. Shake well. Strain into a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass and garnish with the nutmeg. You can also use grated allspice. I like using a combination of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg for a very autumn-y flavor. Brings to mind pumpkin pie, only with BOOZE**.
* According to Bako, this is a Grandma drink. According to me, Grandma had it going on if she was getting sloshed to this.
** Still G0000000gling for hits.
