I remember back in the 90s a couple people--I think Park Service or Forest Service--were killed in Arizona. Last I heard they still didn't know who. There is a serious segment of the population that doesn't trust government and who think that guns are the best remedy.

Somebody get Fishy a blanket.

Powdered alcohol is now a thing
And active voice isn't
The US has approved 'Palcohol' - powdered alcohol that could make boozing much more discrete.

Forget trying to sneak a hip flask into a venue, spiking your drink could soon be as simple as adding powder (if you're in the US that is).

Researchers have invented powdered alcohol, which can even be sprinkled on food or snorted, according to the Palcohol website:

"Let’s talk about the elephant in the room… snorting Palcohol. Yes, you can snort it. And you’ll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose. Good idea? No. It will mess you up. Use Palcohol responsibly."

It sounds like a pretty reckless idea, but the US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has now approved the product and it's expected to hit liquor stores within months.

Thanks science...we think.

1--So, is it something smooth and wonderful like an aged single-malt, or is it gross and disgusting like a bathtub gin?
2--I guess we can expect it to show up as something slipped in drinks as step one in rape.
3--I guess we can expect it to be a factor in alcohol related deaths.

Weeeeeeeeeeee!

Pathfinders from the 173rd Airborne and " force multipliers " are now in place.

Putin may invade Latvia, Lithuania, and Belarus anyway after the " Ukraine referendum ". In the Crimea , and in the Ukraine the Russian Feds are consolidating positions and placing " force multipliers " of their own. It is getting scary.

“I can announce today that a company-size contingent of paratroopers from the U.S. Army Europe's 173rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team airborne, which is based in Vicenza, Italy, will arrive in Poland tomorrow to begin exercises with Polish troops,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters at his daily briefing.

Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will get 150 American troops each. The full deployment will be complete “by the end of this weekend, maybe Monday,” Kirby said.

Even when those U.S. forces rotate back, new ones will take their place for new exercises throughout the rest of 2014, “but beyond that, it could go beyond the end of this year," Kirby said. "We just don't know. We're just going to have to see how it goes.”

And the exercises “very well could” expand to other NATO allies, Kirby said. “But right now it's going to start with those four countries.”

"Rochester, N.Y., takes the top when it comes to happy workers. Why? Well, workers there have nice short commutes - which counts for a lot in our book - and the unemployment rate is better than many places in the United States. Good wages and good bosses are plusses. And then there are the hots - you haven’t lived until you’ve had one.

Did you know?
Hots are a regional type of hotdog made most often with a natural casing and more flavor than a typical hotdog. The most common ones are red or white."

Of course, as Mr. Lau writes, there can be a different point of view as well.


“THEY’LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE”
“The Only E-Zine You Should Ever Bother To Read”
DISCUSSION 41: Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Patriot Of The Year

You want to know what really makes my Goddamned blood boil? I’ll tell you what: the fucking ACLU, cocksucking liberals, and the leftist weenies that would send our great country straight to hell. These spineless bastards are the bane of civil society. They would let criminals run free by trying to close down the jails, let fucking beaners and wetbacks cross our border with impunity, and mollycoddle rapists and child molesters to the extent that no one is safe any longer. These useless degenerates have no place in my world view. Happily I am not alone in my thinking, for there is one man who is a shining beacon in the field of law enforcement: Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the greatest lawman of his era. It is his unwavering eye with regards to the modern penal system that this month’s enlightening discussion will thoroughly address.

You know Sheriff Joe has to be doing something right when he is openly criticized by such faggot groups such as Amnesty International, the ACLU, the American Jewish Committee (whatever the fuck that might be), and the Arizona chapter of the Anti-Defamation League. The good sheriff came to the attention of the American people when he did several things that should be emulated around the country. He decided that fucking criminals should not be housed in comfortable air-conditioned cells but rather be crammed into tents in the Arizona heat where, according to various news reports, the daytime temperatures reached 140 degrees inside. He then decided that, having excellent fashion sense, all inmates should be made to wear pink underwear. This way if they tried to escape they could easily be identified, unless of course they fled to San Francisco. He then had the brilliant idea that prisoners could be fed for, and I swear I am not making this up, 30 cents a day. How, you might ask? By feeding this scum green bologna that was unfit for normal human consumption; eliminating coffee, salt, and pepper; and reducing the number of meals to only two a day. His inmates made the prisoners at Auschwitz look like Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. And for this he has been criticized. What a bunch of fucking douche bags.

But it gets better. Having put up with a bunch of lazy spics crossing the border into his state long enough, and realizing that as long as liberals remained in Washington nothing would change, he took matters into his own hands. He not only made criminals of the people, known as “coyotes”, who smuggled these taco benders into his state, but also the people who were being smuggled. Since it was only a matter of time before they themselves broke the law, which by its very nature defines what an “illegal immigrant” does, he just rounded the whole lot of them up and shipped them off to a camp somewhere. He wasn’t about to return them to Mexico where they would simply come back across the border. Sure a lot of them died due to “exposure” and “malnutrition”, but in the overall scheme of things isn’t that better than having them sell hard narcotics to your children? Sheriff Joe thought so as well.

And as if that weren’t enough, then Sheriff Joe got a truly enlightened idea and brought back the age-old custom of the chain gang. And what did these chain gangs do as part of their penance to society? He had them burying dead “indigents” in a large pit that doubled as a cemetery. Grave markers? Whatever for? Just another fucking waste of taxpayer money. At least in his chain gangs he had the good sense to segregate the blacks from the whites, but even this caused a backlash when he was accused of calling them “just your everyday niggers”. What the hell else would he have called them, dignitaries? If you can’t throw around exacting terminology such as lazy nigger, worthless spic, or red-skinned injun, then what words would likely be banned next, meth-crazed cracker perhaps? Not on Sheriff Joe’s watch.

But sadly, you can guess what happened next. A bunch of Jew activist ACLU types took umbrage at what was happening in the Arizona desert and decided that Sheriff Joe had gone too far. Fuck you, Goddamned miserable kikes. Jesus, I swear. Anyway, they brought a lawsuit against this fine guardian of the people, accusing him of “torture”, mental and physical “abuse”, and denying these cocksuckers their “Constitutional rights”. Give me a fucking break. Since when did we start, literally, letting the inmates run the asylum? But Sheriff Joe stood tall and pretty much told them to go fuck themselves in the ass. The lawsuit is still pending and Sheriff Joe is still in charge. Thank God. How we ever allowed liberals and shit to take over the court system is a mystery to me. I wish it were them who were thrown into a camp someplace. Someplace really unpleasant, someplace like Arizona.

The point is made: We need more Sheriff Joe Arpaios, not fewer. In fact, the recidivism rate would plummet to nearly zero if all the courts modeled themselves after what Sheriff Joe has wrought. And if a few criminals turn up mysteriously “missing”, so much the better. Think of all the money we could save on pink underwear, spoiled bologna, and the high-cost of chains. Here’s to you Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, American patriot and my personal hero.
