If this doesn't creep you out, please don't vote

The Democrats keep saying they don't want to take your guns, but they keep trying to take your guns. This is way fucking worse. They want to take your children:

I think it is helpful when they admit out loud what they actually want to do. At least then we know who the enemy is and what their objectives are.

Meet the world's biggest pussy

A 27-year-old reporter for Politico has put in his entry in the "World's Biggest Pussy" contest. He apparently did not participate in any athletics in high school. Golf, maybe. Whatever. In any event, he recently wrote a story about how he tried to do the workout that 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg does, and that it "nearly broke me:"
I’m no athlete, but I’m young and reasonably fit. I thought the workout would be pattycake, but it was much harder than I expected. Ginsburg’s personal trainer, it turns out, is no joke.
The article is not as bad as the headline, at least when it comes to making the reporter sound like a complete bowl of jello, but it isn't much better. The guy is clearly a fanboy of liberal activism on the Supreme Court and wrote the article to give hope to libtards everywhere that the oldest member of the court is in great shape because she does a workout that damn near killed a 27-year-old and thus will clearly outlive the Trump administration. Dream on, wimpoid.

When Cpl. Wolves was 27, he was leaving the Marine Corps after his deployment to Afghanistan where he walked around carrying more than 70 pounds while people shot at him. I doubt he would be impressed by an octagenarian's workout routine.

And I know exactly what he would think of a 27-year-old who had trouble completing that workout routine.

The Su-57 is so good Russia isn't going to build it

I've talked about this shit a lot. China and Russia both are trying to field a fifth-generation fighter, while we are busy fielding our second (the F-35, the follow-up to the F-22). They're failing miserably. Russia has decided that the fifth-generation fighter it's been working on for years, the Su-57, just isn't worth the money:
Russia announced earlier this month that the Su-57, its proposed entry into the world of fifth-generation stealth-fighter aircraft, would not see mass production.
"The plane has proven to be very good, including in Syria, where it confirmed its performance and combat capabilities," Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said on Russian TV on July 2, as reported by The Diplomat.
But despite Russia's nonstop praise for the plane and dubious claims about its abilities, Borisov said, per The Diplomat: "The Su-57 is considered to be one of the best aircrafts produced in the world. Consequently, it does not make sense to speed up work on mass-producing the fifth-generation aircraft."
Oh, I'm sorry, they said the airplane is so fucking good that it would be stupid to put it into the field. Basically, that means it sucks. I've written a lot about the SU-57 (formerly known as the PAK-50 -- just search the blog for "Russian fifth-generation fighter" for all the posts) and I've never been impressed. Apparently, the Russians aren't, either. And they should know.

Document review haiku number whatever

This project is winding down. There is a lot of work out there, but not much overtime, so I have only been applying to overtime projects. No luck so far. Is this the right approach? I feel a haiku coming on:

Projects keep posting
Am I wrong to ignore them?
Only time will tell.

Or maybe two:

Project nearing end
Should I take shitty project?
I don't fucking know.

Thanks, I'll be here all week.

Totally not astroturf opposition to Trump Supreme Court nominee

I mean, totally.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors
At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person.
The left can't even get real people to oppose a reasonable court choice, so they make shit up. Seriously, this is what they call grass roots opposition?

A little dessert food porn for you

Mrs. Wolves gives me recipes. I make them. Especially when they are dessert recipes. So here we are, with something called cherry clafoutis. It's French, and sounds like "clah-fu-tee." Anyway, it's more like a flan than cake, so get ready for that. Flan or cake, it's pretty fricking good.

You will need the following:

  • 2 cups of fresh cherries, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons of slivered almonds
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour.
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3/4 tsp of almond extract
  • 1-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • A little powdered sugar to dust the finished product

So scatter your slivered almonds all over the bottom of a greased 9x9 baking dish:

Slap those cherries all over that:

By the way, I'm not going to tell you how to pit your cherries. There is such a thing as a cherry pitter. I don't own one, so I had to do it with a knife and my fingers. I hope you own a cherry pitter. I have to believe it is easier.

In any event, whisk the eggs, sugar, and brown sugar until smooth:

Then whisk in the flour and salt:

Toss in the milk, almond extract, and vanilla extract and mix it up right:

Pour all that shit over the almonds and cherries in your baking dish:

Bake at 350 F for 35-45 minutes -- I hit it for 40 minutes and it worked great - and pull that sucker out.

Let it cool, then dust with powdered sugar.

Bon appetit, bitches.
