1) Arcade page has some updates, been a busy bee.
2) Working on the 'ol Honda Magna motorcycle this week.. I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling though. Bike has had a rattle when cold the last year and I assumed it needed a valve adjustment which is very involved with a V4 engine. So this weekend I took everything apart.. and found that nothing was greatly amiss in the valve adjustment. Yikes. Well I did the adjustment and when other parts come in this week (fuel pump, filters) I'll fire it back up and see if the noise went away.. I doubt it though. If anything all the valve adjustment were on the tight side. So this does not bode well and once it is running again see if we can zero in on the issue. The bike has only 24,000 miles on it and is considered a baby in Honda Magna circles. Its not unusual to see these bikes with over 100,000 miles and I have seen one with over 250,000. Once the bike is fixed it will be time to start on the GTX upgrades.
3) Doing some house work too, have a bedroom that is going to see some paint work and minor renovation.
4) Had our first real snowstorm of the season! About a foot, maybe a foot and a half of snow. Great thunder and lightning though. I'm thinking that were most of the way through February that this might be the only major snow we see this winter.
5) Someone stopped by my home to pick up a part and remarked that one of the things they enjoyed was the politics on the "whats new page" and remarked the volume had gone down. As I have remarked in the past, if the President and Congress is doing its job.. I have nothing much to say. Trump has been excellent in the last 30 days, Fake News Media to the contrary. The volume of the media freak out as they toss everything and anything on the wall tells you all you need to know..
That being said... lets roll with the updates!
From the Conservative Tree House:
“You know what the best thing about all this is? Trump supporters aren’t starstruck. They’re not there to see a celebrity or a political icon. They’re there to see one of their own, just a man who’s fighting for them. The deplorables enthusiasm & emotional zeal comes from the heart, it comes from the absolute excitement of hearing an actual warrior who fights for them & stands on principle, honor & integrity. Celebrity worship & shallow platitude ingesting is the leftists domain. The brainwashed masses eat up what their handlers feed them But what we see here is actual Americans concerned about their country & how ecstatic they are that a real leader with real leadership capabilities is finally looking out for their interests There’s no ideological global nonsense involved. It’s simply people who want jobs, safe communities & a country with a viable future It’s nothing more than Americans cheering for America. What a concept”
Congratulations to Joy whose album sales have risen some astronomical number on Amazon. She also sucked all the oxygen out of the media room during the Grammy's denying the haters their platform to bash Trump. Hilarious! Other artists have now come out the closet to support Trump now that Joy Villa has made her stand. Bravo!
Obama lackey goes out the door, get rid of all of them Mr. President.
Rioters going to jail edition.
Not 11 million, more like 30 million.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Fake media edition...
Got that right, preach it brother!
Some random humor...
Welcome to Febuary!
1) John Hurt passes away.
You will be missed Mr. Hurt, one of the few actors I respected who brought everything to the table in almost all of the roles he played. He was low key and didn't put on airs and would even poke fun at himself at times (see him reprising his role as Kane in Spaceballs) He seemed to avoid the stereotype of playing the same individual in every movie he was in.
Looking at you Bruce Willis and I like you, but you are the same guy in every movie.
2) Masaya Nakamura, who founded the Japanese video game company NAMCO and came up with the name "PACMAN" passed away at the age of 91. Mr. Nakamura is not the father of PACMAN as reported by the media which was the brain child of designer Toru Iwatani, he simply came up with the name. Nakamura reportedly chose the word “Pac,” or “pakku” in Japanese, to represent the sound of the Pac-Man munching its prey.
3) Speaking of arcade related items...
I do have other hobbies besides cars and politics!
4) Did some weeding on the
left side navigation bar. Just some stuff that did not take off or pages that
point to links offsite that are dead now..
This song made it to number seven on the music charts!
Dick Clark looks baffled as hell, lol.
From the interesting bedfellows department:
Women's March Speaker Kidnapped, Raped & Tortured Man to Death
One speaker at the march, Donna Hylton, is a convicted felon who took part in the kidnapping, torturing, sodomizing and murder of an old man. Hylton, along with three men and three other women, kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and held him for ransom, before eventually killing him. As noted in a 1995 Psychology Today article, when asked about forcibly sodomizing the victim with a three foot steel pole, one of Hylton's accomplices replied: "He was a homo anyway."
Nasty Women indeed, the face of evil.
If women have the same rights as guns, the woman holding that sign will be:
Banned from all federal buildings, including post offices.
Banned from all banks.
Banned from schools.
Banned from most restaurants and shopping.
Banned from flying.
Banned from Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C., and many other cities.
If she’s short or quiet, there is a $200 ($5 for oddities) tax stamp, fingerprint cards, passport photos, and a federal background check.
Some states will require her to travel in the trunk.
Some states will outright ban her if she looks scary or has certain “features.”
Some states require her to be locked in a safe at home or not in use.
Some states controls how much food she can have.
California requires a background check whenever food is bought for her.
She can be bought and sold, with an FBI background check and waiting period.
She will be demonized and attacked for being who she is.
There will be unceasing outcries to outright ban her.
She would have to go to a mandatory training class before use.
Since I’m a caring person like liberals say they are, I sure hope the woman in the protest march has her dream come true!
I'm glad in 2017 we have feminism to protect women from being treated as sex objects..
I like it.
Because they are fake news, a propaganda outlet.
Roar? People will forget your temper tantrum next week. You are wearing a god damn pussy hat on your head and you want people to take you serious? You come off as a group of self entitled jack-asses screaming for attention. Just what is it that you are protesting? We live in a serious world where the police are getting gunned down in the streets, cities are burning, states teetering on the edge of insolvency, Iran and North Korea are loading missiles on launchers, the economy is in tatters with half the working population unemployed, invaders streaming unimpeded over the borders, "lone wolf" terror attacks happening on a weekly basis and Washington D.C. getting rich while more and more Americans are being fleeced.
Roar? For every ONE of you fools out in the street, THIRTY WOMEN VOTED FOR TRUMP. Your candidate was a useless, cheating, conniving grifter who did nothing but ride the coattails of her rapist husband the last 30+ years who promised to keep the polices of the last jack-ass in office going while importing more Muslim invader-rapists-terrorists AND starting a war with Russia.
Where are the protests against warmonger Hillary Clinton or serial vagina abuser Bill Clinton? Oh I see. He is YOUR GUY and that is acceptable.
Lets play a game; How would the media report a "million man march" by a bunch of guys wearing "cock hats" on Washington D.C. protesting Hillary Clinton?
I'm sure they would be breathless in their reporting.
What more could you ask for? I suspect he will actually follow through with it too.
This.. concerns some people.
Washington might not be the same for some time.
Thank you for the return of the Churchill bust to the White House.
Britain will always be special to the United States and it was a disgrace when it was removed.
God bless you- Can you even imagine the enormity of what just happened? Trump just spent 60 million of his own money, endured endless attacks on his reputation and family, will take no salary as president of the United States and pledged that any profits from his overseas operations will be given to the US Treasury. Truly an inspiring example and NOT business as usual. Clean house sir, we need it badly.
Just let the stupid sink in for a moment.
I had to put up with Obama for 8 years, as the lady says just deal with it.
Sorry for the lack of personal updates, been fighting an illness the last few weeks that has not left me with a lot of energy.
Blurb of the day: How irresponsible we once were, to allow our children such huge blocks of time to be themselves, outdoors with others of their kind, inventing things to do! Think of the trouble they got themselves into. Sometimes they went fishing. Sometimes they set off firecrackers in garbage cans. Sometimes they hopped trains. Sometimes they hiked through woods and mapped out trails. Sometimes they rode their bicycles to nearby towns. Sometimes they climbed trees. Sometimes they declared war on one another. Sometimes they wandered off to a construction site to look at the backhoes and winches. Sometimes they formed secret societies with passwords and oaths and penalties of death, or worse. […] What all children once did on their own, without adults to manage their movements, now relatively few do, under strict supervision. Parents themselves have taken their cue from the schools, and enlist their young charges in all kinds of drills: for dance or music or gymnastics or martial arts, until the schedule for a typical Tormentarian tot resembles the day’s lineup for the executive of a large corporation. You may not, in Tormentaria, look up at the stars at night because you enjoy doing so; but you’ll be admired and envied if your parents convey you to an Astronomy course, wherein you will do very little looking at stars and a lot of riding in a car, answering “present,” looking at greaseboard drawings, and waiting in line to peer through a telescope. … Indeed, everything you do as a child must be geared — I use the word “geared” deliberately — towards that resumé which will gain you admission to Higher Blunting, followed by Prestigious Work, followed by retirement and death.
[Anthony Esolen, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child, ISI Books, 2010; pp 54-55]
I spent many a fond day utilizing my imagination back in the day... we had a black and white TV with little on.. a rotary phone.. no money.. and the vast outside or local library in which to explore.
Fake News Edition:
Some Hollywood putz worth $75,000,000 (million) is going to lecture me on Trump? She attacks with a thoroughly discredited incident about a reporter? And to further add insult to injury whines about violence and disrespect but has nothing to say about BLM rioters burning cities down, assassinating police and a disabled white man being tortured live on Facebook?
I have no problem boycotting Hollywood for another 8 years if this is the type of tripe they are going to continue to spew.
Go back to your gated community with armed guards with participation awards arrayed on the mantel.
You are not some fountain of intellectual thought but a paid meat puppet who is expected to parrot lines written by someone else and emote on command.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Yes the man is a traitor, textbook definition.
Failing to abide by the law, failing to enforce the laws, undermining the rule of law at every opportunity, conspiring with and giving aid to our enemies and undermining our allies and citizens.
The Irish Times: The alt-right movement: everything you need to know
Splendid article, laughed my butt off. Why is it more often than not the UK papers get things right the US media does not? hmm.
Alt-lite: The more mainstream form of the alternative right, embodied by figures such as Vice founder Gavin McInnes or Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
Alt-right: A young, energetic upstart faction of the Trump coalition heavily active on Twitter and underground forums. Characterised by nationalism, scepticism toward globalism and an irreverent sense of humour.
Blue hair: An aggressive, unpleasant feminist with brightly coloured hair, usually depicted as being overweight.
Cat lady: An older, less aggressive version of a blue hair. Cat ladies prefer MSNBC and Cosmopolitan, whereas a blue hair spends her life on social blogging platform Tumblr.
Go read the rest, well worth the 5 minutes or less of your time.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Three times actually, she lost in 2008 as well.
A medal for those offended.
Life is tough, tougher when you are being stupid.
