Instant Karma

The other day I saw a hysterical woman on my TV angrily proclaiming “I don’t want thoughts and prayers I want gun control!”

I didn’t blame her for being hysterical but I do blame her for using her son’s death to dutifully promote the gun grabber’s new favorite talking point in a state that already has severe (nigh on draconian) gun control.

So imagine my schadenfreude when the very same day, her town bursts into flames and now a day later, my fellow fickle, narcissistic  Californios are begging for prayers (and attention) even going so far as creating a special hashtag for it.

Remember The Alamo!

I love this picture! At the time it was taken, it was actually illegal to carry this type of knife in Texas. Bowie knives illegal… in Texas. Let that sink in for a minute.

Now in the photo above, please note the gentleman on the right. Note the absolute glee on his face and today, maybe let’s celebrate people with enough balls to override their brains when the occasion calls for it. Maybe also ponder the role such people play in securing the lofty concepts of freedom and liberty.

And speaking of Texans with balls, have you seen Taylor Sheridan’s 2016 masterpiece Hell Or High Water? Well I couldn’t think of a better day to watch it.

One Equals None

While I won’t loose any sleep over Alex Jones and other nutters getting their content yanked by YouTube censors, it does raise concerns.  You see nowadays, if an event, observation or occurance isn’t on YouTube… in the minds of many, it never happened/doesn’t exist.

Which brings me to InRange TV. Karl Kasarda along with his compadre Ian McCollum of Forgotten Weapons have also had some content pulled by YouTube recently and that is a shame because these are some thoughtful guys coming at things from different angles. They bring a healthy sense of humor along with a bit of soul as well.

I really admire how they have responded to the YouTube censorship issue. Resiliency and redundancy baby!  I have their BitChute link on my Sepulveda Approved blogroll but haven’t figured out how to embed BitChute video into WordPress yet so for now, check them out on YouTube below.

Best Served Cold

Spent a couple hours yesterday whipping up a batch of Sepulveda’s Revenge. I won’t say it’s the finest salsa on earth but it’s close enough. Down in San Diego there’s a little taco shop I frequented, they make the best salsa on earth as far as I know.

I used to pester them for the recipe but always just got a smile and a “no can do boss, top secret.” All I was ever able to finagle out of them was “Serranos” and that was only after I assured them I was moving hundreds of miles north of San Diego County.

Now the San Joaquin Valley has plenty of great Mexican food but no creamy green taco crack so I had to use the google and started messing up the kitchen and viola! Close enough for Rock & Roll.

No I’m not going to share my recipe because it’s not mine and that taco shop down in San Diego? They were just riffing on the original that comes from Austin, Texas!

My advice is to type “creamy green taco crack” into the google and start messing up your own kitchen.
