Our first serious prepping note is thanks to my darling wife.
While we were on vacation, she was driving and misjudged a turn into the carport where we were staying. No damage to the carport, but a $1,200 ding in the old Lex.
Problem: While the dealership in Ft. Worth could have had the job, they don’t come down and pick up, or drop off, so that’s off the table.
Had to go local.
Well, turns out Panama had a gentle impact with a deer – which ran into his care a while back and the fellow he found is town is great.
Got a good estimate – so now it is a matter of timing.
But hold the phone, this is where we get to the prepping part.
While the office dude was checking the ding ($838 is the new price, I happened to notice the “No-consensual Towing charge” notice on the wall.
“Say, Preston, how does that work, since I’m dumb as a stick?”
“Well,” he began, “Here, if a police officer calls the tow – like if your car is blocking a public street, then it is $318.20. But if it is a tow that YOU order, then ijt might be as little as $65.”
He didn’t know if that applied in other states, but shoot-damn, if I ever need a tow, I will order it myself if the vehicle is not blocking.
Check your local laws and preplan this.
Also, carry three or four accident reports in your glove box.

Your articles have been helpful to me in emergency planning and preparation. I created an application to help manage my Standard Operating Procedures and prioritize my resources. I’m launching a crowd funding campaign to commercialize my app. I would appreciate your consideration to view my (2 minute) campaign video.
Your call on how to respond if at all, but makes sense and would have other applications.
Might not help in an EMP event, though…
We look for lots of specials on Caribbean Cruise ships this fall.
Thank (or blame) Zika. And the hostage payer in chief might figure into this, too.

Off the Hook: Title IX Monetization of Transgender Unicorns [G-Rants]
Unicorn Fecal Debris Discourse is perhaps a better title…but my blood pressure is so high my eyes are bleeding so maybe I better explain.
While the the Obama administration sinks ever lower in its closing days, we notice that the attack dogs of the Lunatic Left have gone Rogue Fiction in order to brainwash our nextgen of little darlings.
Witness the delusional marketing of the transgender monetization efforts of the Ostapo which is discussed in a “Think Progress” piece titled “Conservatives Are Really Scared Of This Purple ‘Gender Unicorn.”
The writing is OK…it’s the thinking that’s horrible.
No…but reasonable people fear this mindless unicorn gender marketing bullshit is it is a SYMPTOM.
Mass insanity is in full outbreak North Carolina. Meantime the liberal left being in denial. Sort of like they’re the Tobacco Companies when the Surgeon General’s report came out..
At the risk of barfing the cornflakes, here’s the drill in a nutshell:
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are promoting an infantile Unicorn to “help kids” and staff understand the grand crime of bullying transgender kids.
I can not make-up shit like this. It’s simply too early for me to be this clever.
From the top, reality works like this:
1. The Feds don’t run local schools. Local ;school boards do.
2. Transgender kids didn’t exist when I went to school (remember, I’m an old fart). Therefore they are a new creation.
3. Swarms of bullied t.g kids have been invented by school lawyers because twerps get beat down in all schools.
Kids are mean and stupid. That’s why we sentd them to school. So when they get out, they are smart and mean. Arkansas law firm material.
4. History means something: Back in the old days, everyone got bullied by everyone else. Those who were bullied got even.
We didn’t have lawyers. But we had fireworks, ice picks, sharp glass…etc. We in fact got street smart at school.
It wasn’t a perfect system but it worked. I got the shit beat out of me, someone’s tires got slashed, and that’s how we rolled. Crime met punishment. We didn’t need to monetize anything.
We didn’t need Title IX Ostapo swinging Fedtimidation around like a club. We didn’t spend as much money to Washington. so we didn’t have the frief.
You know how this works, right? Follow real history for a minute:
We send more money to Washington.
They take out 20-90% and hire people who make up crazy shit. Then they send whatever is left back to us sheep in the home districts with strings attached. Many, many, many strings.
School lawyers have made this a hallelujah issue because schools don’t like getting sued when twerp[s get their faces mashed.
Which means lawyers have been pissing away millions on making up “Who are these playground bullies?”
One day, near as I could figure, a bunch of them drank lunch, roasted several bowls, and then dropped acid.
“Hey! What if we make up transgender children and protect them by pretending they’re all Unicorns?”
“Shit…that sounds great. Let’s hire a graphics firm, run out some big budget collateral and lesson plans, put it in curriculum and maybe we can all be famous in the Pimps of CommonCore Annual this year!! We might even get a job officer as Title IX Enforcers!!!!”
“Great…hey. Hold that thought…I got an uncle who’s a plumbing contractor…let me call him and tell him what we’ve cooked up. Why, we can get his business up another 50%. You want in?”
Und zo, Verily, verily, Brothers and Sisters I tell you straight up shit this morning:
There is something in the water that has caused people to lose their minds.
50 years ago, we had kids. They fought. They battled, they got bloody noses. But they coped, invented printed circuits, went to the moon and generally kicked it. We would have won Vietnam, too, but for piss poor management at the top.
Fast forward to President Useless and the Court Packer to Come:
“Honor thy twerps.”
“It’s not their fault they can’t figure out their own plumbing.”
“Listen to what the Unicorn teaches…”
(Are you freaking kidding me?)
No, it is NOT :”conservatives” who are “worried about the darling little unicorn.
It’s any rational person who sees bullshit in 10-foot letters.
And about Think Progress? Big cluje: Making up gender marketing scams to lay on unwilling Taxpayers ain;t happ’nin out here in flyover Land.
Why isn’t the left covering the blow up of Obamacare, by the way? Why roll with purple cartoon shit? Where the outrage at Aetna for calling a turd a turd? Reality check on this one: When ins. co’s lose money they roll up or move on. When the Feds block market efficiency, they lack the power to litigate private firms into losing money. Duh. Yeah, not supposed to work that way of Planet Left, but that’s Planet Real for you.
Meantime, back on Earth…
If the feminization and mass neutering and spaying of America is the best this cast of woeful losers in the Direct of Corruption can come up with, can we hold the election tomorrow, please?
I mean, if that’d be OK with the darling little Unicorn and its pussless and dickless wonders…
(Ure finds no closed season on unicorns in the Texas Game Regs…)
To Recap (as the blood pressure drops back into the safe zone):
1. Elaine can’t remember a single transgender from here school.
2. I can’t remember a single one from mine.
3. Beat downs is how twerps like me got their bloody noses and figured out how the real natural order of the world works: There are only two rules:
A. They with the best lawyers win, and stuff like that.
B. Money matters more than gender, race, IQ, honesty, etc. It’s a crooked planet. Teach the real shit in school. Might mention there are no unicorns, too…but I know…that’s a National Science Foundation Grant to come figuring out how to unwind the lies we tell ‘em young. God, are made up business models awesome, or what?
4. I couldn’t help but note that unicorn agitprop has “Gender Assigned at Birth: Female, Male, Other.”
WHJAT?>???? There is ANOTHER GENDERAL in North Carolina? OMG…call the FDA quick!
Tell me the names of 25 doctor in North Carolina who haven’t had their licenses yanked for writing “I can’t figure this one out…” in the gender space on the Birth Certificate..
One in what, 50,000 to 200,000? (Give it up for the n in statistical c lass!)
Maybe this could start a new trend: Be the dumbest member of the AMA…being unable to sex babies. (Even Ure can sex chicken now, lol)( Hey, think the AMA would be in for a unicorn co-sponsorship?
Who are these crazy people and what are they doing on OUR planet?
This is MAKE UP A BUSINESS MODEL as we have devolved from a country which has gone from PayBoy to PlayGirl and on now to just PlayThings.
Naw, I don’t need rehab. I just need to smoke some of this shit everyone else seems to be getting high on. Cuz this planet is making less sense by the day.
On Earth, that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger and yeah, I’m the only airplane owner that I’m aware of in my High School Class. Overcoming conflict has its merits. Cash and toys come to mind.
but I suppose the agenda isn’t to make us stronger, then , is it?
Peoplenomics this weekend: The fun continues with a nonpolitical view of “Monetizing Your Butt.” No fair saying the topic stinks. The little unicorn says “Don’t prejudge dickweed.”
I have to go check the clock now. It’s gotta be 4 PM somewhere.
