About two Christmases ago, wife kitteh bought me a meat grinder / sausage stuffer. And then life happened and it sat out in the garage until today. I finally had some time to play with it, so I made Cajun Boudin.Making sausages is all about technique. The grinding and the stuffing is not like anything else I'd done, so the first trials were messy failures. I finally figured things out and ended up with a decent amount of sausage. The filling tasted good, fried up in a pan, so I figure the sausages will be good, too.First, you boil pork butt,pork liver and some other odds and ends. Those get ground up.Then you add rice and spices to the ground mix and turn it over real good.Threading the hog casing on the stuffing nozzle took[...]
K T Cat 5/25/2019 2:40:25 PM ... where will you be? Can you reliably predict your social life? What kind of friends you'll have? What will happen in your career?How about if you will be a woman or a man?I've blogged in the past about my friend who is a young woman who has decided she is a man. Transitioning is an expensive process. An insurance company that agrees to the procedure is committing to a lifetime of hormone therapy. Not many will make that decision. Planned Parenthood, vultures that they are, will give you hormone therapy without a prescription, provided you pay them. Anything for a buck, no matter who is ruined or killed in the process.CompassionIn any case, my friend has now been approved for hormone therapy. Testosterone is poisonous to[...]
Silvio Canto, Jr. Sunday, May 26, 2019 1:28 PM "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
We remember Bart Starr who was born in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1934. We learned of his death today.Our family landed in "Packer crazy" Wisconsin in the fall of 1964. My brother and I had never seen a football game. We were raised playing and thinking baseball 24/7. However, it didn't take us long to fall in love with the Packers and the game of football. My first football hero was Bart Starr, the legendary Packers' QB: "5x NFL champion (1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967) 2x Super Bowl champion (I, II) 2x Super Bowl MVP (I,[...]
We learned again that The Food Network is outdrawing CNN. This is from Tammy Bruce: CNN, the chief co-conspirators behind the Russia Collusion Hoax, has fallen to 15th place in primetime with fewer than 750,000 average viewers. Throughout all of cable TV, during the week of April 1, Fox News grabbed the most primetime viewers with 2.3 million, MSNBC came in second with 1.6 million, and way below them, way below number one and number two, way below HGTV, the Food Network, Investigative Discovery, and the Hallmark Channel, sits the far-left CNN in 15th place, with only 745,000 primetime viewers. Throughout the entire broadcast day last week, CNN[...]

Investigators found nine shell casings and eight bullet fragments near her body and said one of the shots entered through the back of her head and exited through her eye.Woolweaver, according to testimony, had loaned Burrus a total of $176,000 and was calling in those loans. A week before her death, Woolweaver text messaged a friend, saying she was not going to[...]

Leftist ViolenceComes toAmerica, a Historical Perspective(To read previous installment, go here; to start with Part One, go here)19th century Europe was marked by growing leftists movements, which attempted several short-lived revolutions throughout the continent. While these leftist risings failed, a new left-wing extremist movement, theanarcho-communists, grew out of them.The word itself comes from a Greek word, anarkos, which means without a chief. Anarcho-communist believe that all government should be abolished along with private property, and thatcommon ownershipof themeans of productionin combination with astateless societies should be the organizing principle. To bring about such change, anarchists argued that violent[...]
PART THREE: UTOPIAN VISIONS LEAD TO BLOODY REVOLUTIONS(To read the previous installment, go here)In 1792 the French liberal intelligentsia, imbibing the heady wine of Rousseaus theories, inflamed the urban mobs against the upper classes.

B-Daddy 6/18/2017 4:30:05 PM As a Bible following Christian, I am often confronted with accusations of hate, along with accusing questions along the lines of what would you do if your child ______________? Father's Day is a great day to answer with the love God grants me through Jesus Christ. I have two adult sons, and both my wife and made their upbringing our number one purpose. Our love them is well-known and shown, so I have skin in the game to discuss this topic. So on to the accusations. What if your son came out as gay? I would still love him of course. Further, I would have good advice for him, remain celibate. This advice is given out of my love. The gay promiscuous lifestyle isn't known for its[...]
Going Hugo Chavez one better, the Democrat controlled California legislator is taking action to ensure that one of their own who voted for the hated gas tax won't get recalled. The legislator is rigging the system to make it harder and longer to recall State Senator Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) whose support for the increase made him a recall target. From the Sacramento Bee:Democrats are pushing late-blooming bills to significantly improve state Sen. Josh Newmans odds of surviving an effort by the state GOP and others to recall him from office.The proposed changes, which became public Monday morning, would add months to the existing timeline of certifying a recall election for the ballot. The measure would virtually[...]
A Kinder and Nicer NFL?Are any of you buying the new crisis management public relations campaign by the NFL, Together We Make Football? The NFL has been pushing commercials that make them look like AT&T or Hallmark. Problem is, I dont think many are falling for the new kinder and gentler NFL. The whole reason they have to clean up their act is that there have been so many bad actors in NFL with behavior stretching from bad to criminal that they had no choice but to look like they cared. And rather than really take a look at the behavior and get rid of bad players, they have them do the classic mea culpa like Ray Rice after he beat his fiance unconscious, they go away for a little while either by due process or the NFL[...]
Doo Doo Econ Tuesday, January 19, 2016 6:08 PM Doo Doo Economics are the policies of overspending, printing money, neglecting the key economics issues, bad science and promoting entitlement programs which all add up to higher taxes during a recession and economic unsustainablility.
Once again Americans are facing questions about the definition of a Natural Born Citizen (NBC).This is the simple and indisputable definition: Two citizens who have a child, naturally create a new citizen. This is a Natural Born Citizen.There is absolutely no expert either legal or historical who will argue to the contrary. They may argue to include additional citizens, but this is the core of the definition.Two people who have a child in a location, have a citizen who is native to that land. This is a Native Born Citizen. Thus, terms like "Native American" which imply a location and not an allegiance to a country.A person can be both Natural Born and Native Born, or in the United States we also have Naturalized[...]
Do you remember the headlines when Obama apparently declared America a Muslim country on French television? Taken from an Islamic perspective this statement is dangerous. It sounds as if the President of the United States sees America is a Muslim nation. When you consider translations, this may presented to the masses as exactly that, American President Hussein (an exclusively Islamic name) Obama declares America to be Islamic. Thus America would be "al-Islam", or territory which may never be ceded to non-Muslims.Semantics, right? Over-reaction, right?Except, this is a long standing meme from not only the President, but also his staffers. [...]
Dean 11/11/2015 9:22:09 AM Over the weekend, Salon writer, DAVID MASCIOTRA, caused quite a dust-up on social media with his own salute to the troops ahead of Veterans Day . Here is the headline, followed by the sub-headline and then followed by the first paragraph of the piece:You dont protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracyIt's been 70 years since we fought a war about freedom. Forced troop worship and compulsory patriotism must endPut a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as heroes.If you desire, you can read it[...]
Theres no denying that over the last few decades most all on-field rules changes made by the NFL have been exercises in increasing offense and scoring. This has created an arms race in a sense where the pendulum swings back and forth between the NFL offenses and NFL defenses whereby the offenses get aided by rules changes and the defenses counter with a combination of innovative schemes and superior athletes. To wit, for years, its been conventional wisdom that the best athletes in the world were in the NBA. Now days, we would add NFL defensive backs and possibly outside linebackers/rush ends into that mix (you dont think dudes like Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and J.J. Watt can ball a little?).But[...]
