Godey’s Lady’s Book Receipts

There was a very popular American lady’s magazine from 1830 through 1896 called Godey’s Lady’s Book. In addition to household management tips, the issues contain a wonderful collection of recipes. Google has scanned in two books that have compilations of those recipes;

Digital Ultraviolet and Foreign DVDs

I’ve always wondered. You can order a DVD from a region outside of your own. If that DVD has a digital copy, can it be streamed in your country?

No. I have a DVD from amazon.de and I am in the United States. The DVD comes with an Ultraviolet digital copy. The Sony site is very clear about the code begin from a country not covered by the agreement.

Just an interesting piece of trivia. I don’t know anyone, other than myself, who has actually used their Ultraviolet copy anyway.

Harry Reid’s Bloodbath?

Harry Reid’s son has interests in a Chinese Solar Plant deal. A deal that is supposed to use land owned by Cliven Bundy in Nevada. Hundreds of heavily armed BLM thugs are there stealing the cows and threatening protesters.

Some militia groups are showing up. Concerned citizens are starting to show up as well.

Reading through the Twitter feed #BundyRanch makes me think we have an very nasty flashpoint brewing.

Let freedom ring, baby.

Late breaking news. The feds have declared the area a no fly zone.

FDC 4/1687 ZLA NV..AIRSPACE MESQUITE, NV..TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS WITHIN AREA DEFINED AS 3NM RADIUS OF 364624N/1141113W (MMM71 RADIAL AT 4.3NM) SFC-3000FT AGL LAW ENFORCEMENT INVESTIGATION. PURSUANT TO 14 CFR SECTION 91.137(A)(1) TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT. ONLY RELIEF AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS UNDER DIRECTION OF BLM ARE AUTHORIZED IN THE AIRSPACE. BLM TELEPHONE 702-335-3191 IS IN CHARGE OF ON SCENE EMERGENCY RESPONSE ACTIVITY. LOS ANGELES /ZLA/ ARTCC TELEPHONE 661-265-8205 IS THE FAA COORDINATION FACILITY. 1404112140-1405111434

Okaaay. Looks like some one wants to start a bloodbath?

As of 1pm on 4/12/2014, it appears that the BLM is backing down for now. I wouldn’t count on that continuing…

The lack of coverage by many news sources shows anyone with a brain that the news services are in the tank for the government.

In the end, I can’t decide what is the most scary;

  • The press’s lack of reporting.
  • The government’s illegal land grab IN BROAD DAYLIGHT!
  • The backroom deals that made all of this possible.
  • The BLM stormtroopers who would actually carry out such an operation.

The only thing I can take away from this entire clusterfuck of an operation is that this is only the beginning of a very messy disagreement between patriots and a completely out of touch corrupt government. After all, what Harry Reid’s son wants, Harry Reid’s son gets.

B Movies

First of all, to those purists who want to argue about the term “B-movie”. Yes, I understand that “B Movies” is actually a term during the Golden Age of Hollywood that meant:

a film intended for distribution as the less-publicized, bottom half of a double feature

In the context of this blog, it simply means cheap and campy.

If you like low budget movies, you MUST go to http://archive.org.

If you want to see quite a few drive in movie selections, use the following search:

A coworker showed me an interesting site for those looking to purchase rare video gems: http://www.cinema-de-bizarre.com/index.html

I decided to do a little research. I looked through my Roku channels and other internet channels that I think are entertaining and decided to attach the list to this post.

These are all on my personal Roku channel selections;
Crackle.com is wonderful!
Crunchyroll.com has some fun stuff.
Funimation.com, great for anime.
hulu.com, has lots of content.
asian-crush.com, has a great collection of Asian flicks. I love the Korean section.
midnightpulp.com, has some great oldies.
http://www.snagfilms.com/snagxtreme/, has some great oldies.

These are not on Roku, at this time:
http://www.bmovies.com/. I ran into this one while researching for this post!
http://retrovision.tv/, has some great oldies.

It is difficult to believe just how many goodies youtube has;

Idiot Jeb Bush Encourages the Rape of America

In the Washington Post, Jeb Bush made the following statement about illegal immigration:

The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family.

What Jeb calls an act of love, I call a violation of the public trust in the most disgusting manner possible. I do not call the rape of America an act of love, I call it a violation of national Sovereignty. Sovereignty in this case should be defined as “an autonomous state”. You know, that thing we had before Democrats started getting votes by stuffing various polling areas with illegals who will always vote for a free handout. You know, that thing we had before Republicans started maximizing corporate campaign funding by encouraging the import of cheap illegal labor.

I wonder if Jeb considers stealing someone’s identity an act of love? When an Illegal fraudulently declares several dependents on his or her federal taxes, dependents that they do NOT have to prove exist, dependents who do not have to reside in the United States nor have U.S. social security numbers, is that an act of love? Gee Jeb, you are into some really kinky types of love!

I hate to break it to the out of touch rich boy Bush scion, but I am sick and tired of paying the bills for every damned illegal. I am tired of a government-corporate axis of evil that is doing everything it can to destroy wages in this nation and eliminate the educated middle-class. I am tired of politicians whose loyalty is not to this country. Put simply, I tired of the Bushes, the Clintons, and all of the other fucking family dynasties.

I feel sorry for the student who can’t get an in-state tuition to go to the college in another state even though many illegals can. I feel sorry for the guy who used to be able to feed his family with the earnings from his landscaping business, but can’t compete with illegals. I feel sorry for the scientists, technicians, engineers, and medical (STEM) professionals who can’t find jobs because of the H-1B visa scam that allows corporations to cry about the lack of STEM workers, lay off thousands of American STEM workers, and then import temporary foreign H-1B visa workers to work cheaper. I feel sorry for the neighborhoods that are filled violent illegals who were supposed to be deported but the government decided to let the poor illegals go, again. I feel sorry for the communities that have lost their hospitals because of illegals coming over the border and bankrupting them. I feel sorry for the taxpayers who have to pay for ballets in multiple languages because the government won’t declare English our national language. I feel sorry for the future Americans who will never see a middle-class. I feel sorry for the black voting block that will one day realize who was screwed the most by this game…

See Jeb, I have feelings too! Can’t call me unfeeling! Thing is, Jeb, my concern is for Americans. You know, that guys that pay the bills? You know, those people? The ones outside of the Washington D.C. beltway.

Let me make this simple for the idiots who don’t get it. If neither the constitution nor national boundaries mean anything, then we have anarchy. If we have anarchy, no one needs to follow any laws. If laws don’t need to be followed, we don’t need any political hacks feeding at the public trough making new laws…

Maybe Jeb is right, maybe we need to burn the constitution and make some adjustments, with love of course. Hey, it isn’t my idea, it’s Jeb’s.

Brenden Eich steped down as Mozilla CEO

In 2008, Brenden made a $1,000 donation to support California Proposition 8, which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. In the final vote, Prop 8 was supported by 52% of the voters.

Now, six years after the fact, the liberal fascist militant homosexual pressure groups did everything they could to force the man to resign. They got their wish. They also helped to further poison and divide the country. The gaystapo may find things aren’t going to be quite so easy from this point forward.

I don’t personally give a damned one way or the other when it comes to gay marriage. I do give a damned about the polarization of the country that is getting worse by the day. It is moments like this that I believe less and less that there can be any accommodation. It is moments like this that I remember the words of a friend of mine, “let freedom ring baby”. Most people don’t truly understand just how dangerous that sentiment can be.

There was once a time in the United States when people of strong opinion would say, and really mean: “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Nowadays, most people of strong opinion wouldn’t piss on opposition believers if they were on fire…

Make no mistake about it, I don’t claim to be any different than the rest. I can no longer say that I have much respect for so called liberals that are really progressives. I can not in good conscience respect those who attempt to reduce my rights and freedoms each and every day. I have no respect for those statists who give more and more control to a central government that grows ever more distant from the constitution and from any beliefs I have.

America, it was great while it lasted…

Vegetarians – Those unhealthy wretches!

Medical University of Graz in Austria did a study that shows things look bad for vegetarians. To quote CBS Atlanta’s take of the study, vegetarians have: “…generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care…”

http://atlanta.cbslocal.com/2014/04/01/study-vegetarians-less-healthy-lower-quality-of-life-than-meat-eaters/

But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products — carries elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health disorders.
Vegetarians were twice as likely to have allergies, a 50 percent increase in heart attacks and a 50 percent increase in incidences of cancer.

My take is eat meat, it’s what makes the body feel good!
