Texas suing over Obama Tranny rules

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says the state will become the first to sue the Obama administration over new federal guidance for transgender students in public schools.

Abbott tweeted Wednesday that Texas will sue “to stop Obama’s transgender directive to schools.” The message from his personal Twitter account came hours before a scheduled news conference by state Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Abbott later said at a book signing that the lawsuit will challenge how Obama is “trampling” the Constitution.

Several conservative states have vowed defiance since federal officials this month told U.S. public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms to match their gender identity.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has said the state is willing to forfeit $10 billion in federal education dollars rather than comply.”

How about this?

Texas forfeits $10 billion in federal aid and since that violates the equal protection clause Texas withholds it Federal tax payments



Yeah, Kind of…..


Former Army Explosives tech busted with bunch of goodies


“A break-in at a storage facility in Parkville, Missouri, led to the arrest of a former explosives technician Friday after authorities discovered the man to be in possession of several unlawful explosive devices.

Local authorities received a call Thursday, May 19, about the break-in and upon arriving at Parkville Self Storage facility, found several lockers, trailers and vehicles had been vandalized. Located in and near one of the vandalized trailers was ammunition canisters, rocket fins, blasting caps, C-4 explosive and military grenade simulators, according to a press release from the Justice Department. Investigators learned the trailer was owned by John A. Panchalk, 42, who resided in Overland Park, Kansas, about 20 miles from the storage facility.

Panchalk, who spent a decade as an explosive ordinance disposal technician in the Army, was contacted by investigators, who noted he was “evasive” when questioned about the trailer’s contents. Authorities also noted Panchalk later said that he used the devices, some of which were inert, as training aids. Court documents indicated the grenades were fully functional, but was unclear on the other items.

When a search warrant was executed at Panchalk’s home, authorities found another 38 pounds of C-4 explosive, detonation cord, blasting caps, grenade simulators, incendiary devices and the two M-67 fragmentation grenades, which are required by federal law to be registered with the National Firearms Registration and transfer record”

I mean seriously, can you blame the guy?

You never know when you might need 38 Lbs. of C-4

Really, it’s not like he blew anything up

It’s a dude thing

If I had access I am sure I would have my own treasure trove

You know, just in case

Hillary Clinton pushes for reinstatement of national 55 mph limit — Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, ex-First Lady and likely future presidential candidate threw out an odd legal suggestion to the National Press Club this week: a nationwide return to the double-nickel. According to Clinton, “The 55-mile speed limit really does lower gas usage. And wherever it can be required, and the people will accept it, we […]

Crappy owl pictures

My wife is having a really hard time getting pics

It is actually way darker than it looks in the photos and the auto focus is having a hell of a time finding the right target

The middle pic is probably the best. That is Missus Arty

If you notice she is the gray Morph of the screech owl where Arty is red. The young ones are gray also

I say “Ones” because a new juvenile appeared

He is still fuzzy and a little smaller than the adults

I now have a family of four

Tonight I am bringing frozen mice home for the little guy

They left him in the yard last night when they went out hunting

Screeches do that when they are old enough to be out of the nest

They kick them out and then drop food off to them here and there

Other than that they are on their own

I think that is why Arty brought him back here

He knows there are frozen mice coming out of the wood work

Next appearance we will try for some better pice

Marion county is adjacent to where I live

They are notorious for being highly militarized and abusive

Ocala is the town where cops in an MRAP pulled a guy over for giving them the finger

Have fun Sheriff

Hope you go home safe tonight




You talking to me?

artyThis was Arty shortly before his release

To the novice he probably looks angry, but he is actually chilling

Owls have a remarkable way of communicating displeasure

Like the first time he said “No more petting the F@cking owl!”

Or “No more picking the F@cking owl up!”

Or “Leave the F@cking owl alone!”

Yes, when he does not want you to do something he makes it absolutely clear

Body posture, stance, a slight wing lift, a certain look in the eye

You can tell he is about to pounce on your head

Just back slowly away…
