Nice speech:


And here’s the thing:



None of those other “Pillars” will stand without a BORDER WALL>

A COMPLETED wall. Built from the Pacific to the Gulf.

Then start the rest. As for the other proposals? Yep, I gotta say I like ’em. Especially the proposal wherein bad Government workers can be fired. (I doubt he can circumvent Civil Service laws, but lets  see)

Well, that was interesting

First time at a class C airport.

Lots more to the workload: radios and frequencies, and figuring out what to repeat back and what not to is gonna take some experience.  I hope the controllers weren’t laughing too hard….

So far, up ’til now, I have done all my work at untowered (pilot controlled) airports, with one class D once as a touch and go.

I’m thinking it woulda been easier to start at a class C and go down to untowered places, rather than work up.

I’ll get it, just more to learn.

Onward and upwards, as they say.

“Be Worthy”

The best part of the message.

Be worthy of the citizens who you serve.

Damned skippy.

I think most of Washington has forgotten that.


I thought it was childish when Republicans boycotted Barry’s State of the Union speech.

I think it is even more petty, childish, and immature today. They can’t even articulate why beside “Trump!”.

14 Democrats boycott Trump’s first State of the Union speech.

Surely, at some point they have to act like adults, don’t they? Weren’t they taught how to behave? Or will they always act like immature 12 year old girls? 

Don’t trust ’em, Donnie:

Ronnie Reagan trusted the rest of his Government when he went for Immigration Amnesty in 1986….And he got screwed. So did the American people.

There was no border security implemented (as promised)…none.  Few of the “legalized” illegals paid any fines, and few ever met any of the other requirements of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

There were 4 million illegals when the act was signed.

Now we have 25 million illegals. No border security to speak of, and the Left (and some of the Right) has done their best to keep us from getting a border wall for the past 32 years. We have a greater problem with illegal immigrants now than we did then. And remember: 4 million or more got amnesty in 1986. So those 25 million (or more) are all new.

Mr Trump: DON’T TRUST ’em. Demand a COMPLETED wall before ANY other actions take place regarding immigration or Amnesty for ANY illegals. A wall must be completed as a precondition for all the other legislation to become law.


Don’t trust anything else. Don’t trust the congressmen (and women) on the Right, and SURE AS HELL don’t trust the congresscritters from the Left.

They want the illegals so they get cheap labor (right) and more voters (left). More people to exploit.

Make ’em ante up first. Wall.

What does this tell you?

A paper published in the journal Royal Society Open Science reports that a group of researchers directed by James Barrett of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge, has radiocarbon dated 153 new finds, including arrows, tools, skis, rags, horse gear and “scaring sticks” (poles used in the hunting of reindeer).

According to Cosmos magazine , the objects were all unearthed from melting ice patches in the region of Jotunheimen and the surrounding mountain areas of Oppland in Norway. According to the experts, the dates shed new light on the occupation of the region, with the researchers concluding that the population and hunting practices in the area increased and decreased drastically in combination with the climate changes there. During periods of extreme cold for example, signs of human presence decrease, while they appear to return again in the warmer periods.

This find tells me that it was longa go, warm enough that people lived there, and worked there, and hunted there and grew crops there. Then it got cold enough that they all left and went somewhere else.

Then it warmed enough that someone else went and found all the stuff that they left behind that, until now, was covered with ice.

Therefore it has been both significantly colder there (In Norway), and significantly warmer. (Much like the rest of the earth).

“Global Warming” is bullshit, so is “Global Cooling”, “Climate Change” is also a bunch of bushwah.

These cycles happened over and over in the past. The changes we see today are normal variations in climate.

All thse climate scientists should be shot for stealing money from governments and false reporting. 

Who is writing the script?

Seems that all of the DNC types, and a goodly percentage of the RNC types keep repeating the Mantra:

“A Border Wall isn’t a good solution, we have Technology that is more effective”

“We have technical solutions which do a better job of keeping our border safe”

WTF? Cameras don’t deter anyone. Nor do motion detectors. A physical barrier that is difficult to climb or go around, that is imposing and is hard to scale is a Great Solution. It may not stop everyone, but it WILL stop most.

The only technological solution  that is a deterrent is a minefield (which is also a barrier). The downside is the maintenance (and the fact that it kills people rather than just deterring them).

Spycams and motion detectors don’t do anything unless you have the manpower to back it up and apprehend what/who the devices detect. We don’t have that much manpower in Customs and Border Patrol.

But seriously: Who is writing the script that these congressweasels keep repeating? Someone is telling ’em what to say. They’ve been saying it for the past 30 years or so, (and fighting against a wall for all that time) and so far, I can’t see that we have a better solution than a wall. Oddly, walls and fences work where we put ’em along the border near California and in some places in Texas….People have to go to other locations to cross.

Who is putting words in the mouths of our Senators? Who’s paying ’em to repeat back that bullshit?  

Spent a some bucks today

Turning left: Like NASCAR only in a 172S. 2 hours of flight time isn’t cheap

2.1 and 14 landings.

Wind was calm, or nearly so. Temps were upper 30’s. I had actually been hoping for the forecast winds for some crosswind practice, but it stayed calm.

I did 14 touch and go’s.

Expensive practice.

Civil War

Via WRSA we get THIS: (And you really should , as they say, Read the Whole Thing)

It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win, won.

We’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and leftist professional government.

The pros have made it clear that they’re not going to accept election results anymore. They’re just going to make us do whatever they want. They’re in charge and we better do what they say.

That’s the war we’re in. And it’s important that we understand that.

(see, that’s how you give fair credit for an article, or a website, or even a photo that you found on someone else’s website Not sure how they do it in Texas, but that’s the way the rest of us do it)

From the Pacific to the Gulf

Only then, when the wall is COMPLETED, will I support any legalization of the Dreamers and/or other action to legalize them.

Not “funded”.
Not “Started”.
Not “Materially complete”.


No more lies nor broken promises, no more “drones” nor “Passive Sensors”.

A. Fucking. WALL.

Only then can you ask me to support any other legislation which, in any way, legalizes even one single person who is here illegally.

Stop the influx. Stop the Chain Migration, the Diversity lottery and all the other shit that brings people in who aren’t gonna make this their home….their nation….who won’t fly the Flag of the United States as THEIR flag.

Then we can talk about the rest….When the Wall is COMPLETE.

And anyone who is legalized after that needs to pay a fairly hefty fine for being here illegally and can’t vote for at least 10 years or 2 presidential election cycle, whichever comes first.

Make that happen, and I will give you my support.
