For those of you who have reading along for a while now, you’ve probably been able to deduce that I am a proud carnivore.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and insult the vegans and vegetarians who may have stumbled over to my corner of the internet.  I’m a libertarian, and y’all are welcome to whatever dietary restrictions that you would like to impose on yourselves.  Just leave me out of it, and quit disrupting my day with your diatribes.

As an avid meat-eater, I do pride myself on being a bit adventurous.  I’ve run down the wild game gamut more than a time or two, thoroughly enjoying Elk and wild boar, along with rabbit and the like.  Frog legs were a pleasant surprise, I believe, and I know now that it takes an excellent chef to prepare escargot.

But I will also say that there is a uniqueness to the experience of eating an animal that, while alive, could have ended your life.  Bear, alligator, and other killing machines are routinely served around the world, and I will attest to their deliciousness, (bear less so than gator).

Now a YouTube survivalist is taking this sentiment a step further, and injecting a little bit of revenge into his latest dish.

The video, titled “Pan Frying Rattlesnake,” was uploaded in October by Texan Bob Hansler and it has gotten 540,000 video views, along with 2,100 comments from people both intrigued and nauseated at the sight of a sizzling rattlesnake.

“We’re going to show you how we do it down South,” says Hansler, a former biology teacherwho had a severe reaction to a diamondback rattlesnake bite in September.

“This is a western diamondback rattlesnake (that) one of the neighbors dropped off here last night. They ran this over and brought it to me, so fresh snake.”

Now for kicker…

Hansler, who has 175,000 YouTube subscribers, spent three days in intensive care in September, after being bitten by an “angry, aggressive” diamondback rattlesnake. He was with a group hiking at the time, according to GoFundMe campaign that raised $4,300 for medical expenses.

He doesn’t mention the snake bite in the video, but commenters didn’t miss the irony.

“I’m surprised you didn’t throw it on ice after cooking it,” commented viewer Jon M. “After all, revenge is a dish best served cold. I’m sure this particular meal felt extra satisfying after recent events.“

For the record, rattlesnake can be delicious if prepared properly, but don’t expect anything too strange on the tongue:  It really does taste like chicken.

Here is Hansler’s tutorial in full:

Brooklyn Bridge Shut Down by Anti-Vax First Responders’ Protest

Is the liberal left paying attention yet?

Published

on

For many on the left side of the aisle, there appears to be a false yet pervasive stereotype of the anti-vaccine crowd.  They see the un-inoculated as an amalgam of wild, unkempt Americans clutching their guns and gadsden flags, mixed in with a few of the holistic backwoods types who use homemade deodorant as well.

This is because the left can only see the right as inferior to them, and this gross oversimplification of the issue helps them to process the situation at a level of intensity that suits their cognitive capacity.

But they are wrong, and this ugly characterization is one of the most potent reasons for America’s current political divide.

In fact, the anti-vaccine movement is a highly diverse one, embodied by Americans from all walks of life, including a vast number of fist responders and healthcare workers, who are, by definition, some of the folks at the highest risk for coming into contact with COVID-19.

They, along with others, made their voices heard in New York City on Monday.

New York City municipal employees are marching across the Brooklyn Bridge Monday against the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The protest, which is set to end in front of City Hall on the Manhattan side of the bridge, is billed as an anti-mandate protest on behalf of nearly 50,000 NYC employees who have yet to be vaccinated with a deadline just days away.

Traffic is shut down on the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan as of 11:49 a.m., according to police.

The scene was captured by a great many social media users.

How the left is going to spin this is still a mystery, but there is no doubt that they’re going to try.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
