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:

Joe Biden a Victim of Democrat-Style Elder Abuse

Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious.

“Democrats’ uncompromising lust for power and residual rage from their 2016 election loss is on full display through the cruel and immoral exploitation of President Joe Biden.” At the rate Joe Biden is declining, as evidenced by his recent spate of monumental gaffes on CNN and other video footage, along with his daily rambles, mumbles, non-sequiturs, and outright psychobabble, it’s anyone guess as to how much longer his handlers, his wife and family, and the sycophantic press can continue to provide cover for him.  Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious. Even nine-year olds know. Wait, you say! Each day for a couple of hours, he gets to play ‘president of the USA.’ How can that be elder abuse?  Causing Harm to An Elderly Adult “Elder abuse is an intentional act or failure to act that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult,” based on guidelines from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “An older adult is someone age 60 or older. The abuse often occurs at the hands of a care giver or a person the elder trusts.” Are you listening Jill Biden? “Victims often have to decide whether to tell someone they are being hurt or continue being abused by someone they depend upon or care for deeply,” the CDC states. “Elder abuse is common. Abuse, including neglect and exploitation, are experienced by about 1 in 10 people aged 60 and older who live at home.” Home can include the White House. What are the harmful effects of elder abuse? The National Council on Aging reports that elders who have been abused have a 300% higher risk of death when compared to those who have not been mistreated.  To Exploit and Rule…

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Published

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.
