Customer Service...don't read if you want to hear me bitch

Had a very good experience with customer service the other day and as we all know, no good experience goes unpunished.

My i-phone had the power button get stuck in the down position, while not rendering my phone useless it was a pain in the ass.  So I call in to verizon, go through the obligatory questions (did you turn it off? have you pressed the button? has the phone been run over by a tank?).  They really need a way to verify that you have not gone "full retard" so you can bypass all the trickery they use to find out if you are a 88 yr old woman with an i-phone.

Anyway, pass a few of the tests and I had the replacement on the way in under 20 min.  The dude on the phone was a bit chatty, but other than that it was on the way with little issue.  I received it in 3 days, backed up the phone and I am back in the land of being able to turn off my screen to save the battery.

Thank you Verizon and to Bob the friendly service rep that told me all about his fantasy football team while he was trying to get the warranty information from Apple.

Happy New Year

It is almost 2013, the mayans were wrong and I have been on vacation.  Looks like it is going to be another interesting year for everyone.  Maybe I was just not informed at the time, but I wish we could go back have a year that started out without a fiscal cliff and massive debt.

Sometimes I wish that I could go back and be ignorant, stop watching the news and just get drunk on champagne like half of the world for new years. 

Maybe 2013 will be the year that I win the lottery and can stop working the 9-5!

Mayan apocalypse, gun control, etc....

The title should be enough for everyone on the world wide webs to want to tune in.  I have been mostly silent for the past few weeks with a whimper here or there, I was moving... so eat a dick.  Well this is my 200th post and I refuse to let it be a piece of shit!  Grab on to your asses....Here we go!!!!!!!!

1.  Mayan Apocalypse:
     Fuck yea!  This is one of the best reasons to drink since Easter, the solar eclipse, and breakfast.  There are actually people out there that think someone is going to turn off the lights at some point tomorrow, well I guess you have to believe in something.  I believe that if these Mayan fuckers were so damn smart that they would have made it to the end of the world.  (it is rumored that the original fast and furious started with them)

So grab you a ice cold brew and drink up fuckers!  If you make it to Saturday, keep drinking and celebrate that the Mayans were a bunch of fuckheads. 

2.  Gun Control
      I have be largely silent on the Sandy Hook tragedy.  Partially in respect, but partially to see what the facts of the matter were.  There is no way to describe it other than a tragedy, as a father I can not imagine the anger, fear and sadness that is sweeping through those families.  I keep them in my prayers.  I also pray for the shithead that killed all of those innocent children, I wish he could have received the help he needed which may have been the only preventative measure in this case.

On to the gun grabbing.....Everyone that I follow has pretty much said similar things, I agree with most of them.  I also have heard some views that scare me and some that surprise me.  The scary ones are the typical political talking head douche canoes.  The surprising one was from Ice T, who is the only person I have ever seen on TV take the 2nd amendment and describe its actual purpose, to protect the people of the United States from tyranny (not being able to go hunting).   The bill of rights did not give a flying fuck about people being able to hunt, it was to preserve the liberties of American people, hunting was a given. 

There is all sorts of other shit that I could ramble on about, but I need to hit the fridge for another beer and also need some content for post #201.  Thank you to all the people that have been putting up with my bullshit and to the only person to comment on a consistent  AngryMike!!

To those people that lurk around, throw out a damn comment and I will talk shit back to you!

I am still formulating my opinion on the shooting, until then check out my boy Angrymike.  He has some pretty good points Angrymikes hood

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Its the last time in our lives that the date will repeat!  Holy shit!  Run for the fucking hills!

Who cares! 

What really should worry you is the end of the world next Friday, my boy Angus brought up a good point.  The universe is going to rob us of a weekend!  That should get everyone pretty hyped up!  The Mayan apocalypse is upon us!

Signs of the apocalypse:

Justin Beiber is famous
There is a Honey Boo-boo

Ways to prepare for the apocalypse:

Lots of ammo and beer

So bring it on universe....if I'm going out, I'm going out drunk....

Costas! What a Douche!

I think the title tells the whole story.  Was he quoting someone? Yes.  Did he go full retard by saying what he did? Yes.  That is about the long and short of what I think.

I did love something I heard today about an NFL player not needing a gun to kill someone, I think it may have mentioned OJ Simpson.

I could go on for a few more words about how I think he should be ostracized for his lack of compassion by turning a tragedy into a political shit show.  Or how he was poo-pooing violence while getting ready to watch extremely large athletes run at each other at full speed  and go boom.

I think it has something to do with the duality of man.

Now show me your war face!!!

So last post I was bitching and moaning about not going shooting in quite a while.  Well guess what?  I still haven't put one round down range.  Shitty!

But on the upside, today is closing day on my house!  The house I have tried to sell for 2 years, it was a great house, but that fucker just wouldn't let go of me.  I finally pried its hands off my wallet and sold it while feeling a bit butthurt about having to pay to sell my house. 

Onward, we have been looking for some great houses just outside of Charlotte and of course need to find one that come equipped with a panic room, walk in cooler, root cellar, gun safe room, secret passages, and a house gnome.  Its harder to find than one may think. 

I'm just going to settle for a garage big enough to house a beer fridge, my toys, and a workbench and defer all other decisions to Mrs. Redneck.  C'mon house!

Ohh yea, going to be doing a lot of 12oz curls in celebration of the closing.  Feel free to drink along with me, I might even try to live blog the beers I will be drinking (hint: they are all domestic and lite)

Lack of things that go boom

I need to get out and go shooting! It has been over a month since I have made anything go boom!  How did I let this happen?  I have been a slack ass!

Solution: IDPA match in the very near future

Ever since I started competitive shooting there has been a part of me that wants to tell normal ranges to fuck off!  I no longer look forward to shooting down a 3 foot wide alley.  It sucks. 

I need to go work on my form nonetheless....

Finally done with moving all of our shit out of casa de redneck! Closing the end of the week.

Ready to get into a new house ASAP with some more room and my very own playroom (read garage). It's going to be on like donkey kong ( yeah, I fucking said that dopey ass shit).

Pack it up

The packing is in full swing in the Redneck household.  We have boxes galore and should be ready to roll this weekend.  Why move the weekend after Thanksgiving?  Cause I like to make things a pain in the ass!

So the interuption in my ranting continues for a short time more.  I know that all my "homies" (to use a Biden gaffe) are chomping at the bit for me to start slinging some content that is worth a shit. 

But until then I will continue to bore you with details of packing and moving!

Crunch time

We are approaching the exodus of our humble abode, therefore we are packing like crazy which has prevented me from posting a whole hell of a lot.  Truthfully, I haven't been a diligent as I should have been in the last month or two. 

Hopefully we will get packed the hell up and get into our new place quickly.  We are moving a bit out of the city limits of Charlotte, but not quite into the country as I would like. 

I will try to update over the next little bit. 

Update #1 - packing sucks a fat one

Side note:  Big thanks for my biggest view day ever at 149 views!  A large part of that was from Ireland, so cheers to the boys across the pond!  Apparently my nonsense is huge with the Irish, probably due to my constant mentions of drinking.

Ignorance is bliss

After the election, I have decided to start an "ignorance is bliss" campaign. 

I am not going to be watching the news in the AM, I am not listening to talk radio, but I am going to be checking Drudge / Fox / Twitter intermittently to keep up to date on the current events.

It has become a part of my life that creates undue stress, I have enough stress in my life, so I have decided to remove it and keep my radio tuned to some smooth jams.  OK, so maybe AC/DC is not smooth but it is fucking badass driving music. 

I am on day 3 and so far my stress level is at a level 3.7 out of 5. 

This is an improvement of code red level 5 on election night.

Veterans Day

I know this is a day late, but THANK YOU to all our veterans.  Your sacrifice allows us to live safely in the greatest country in the world.

Question for the gun nuts

What are your favorite gun / shooting websites? 

I have a few that I frequent, but am always looking for something new to waste time on. 

Hook a brotha up!!!

Back to the Grind

Getting back into packing mode trying to get ready for our move later this month, I have a lot of shit!

Should be relatively uneventful, hopefully.  I will try to keep the bitching to a minimum.  So to entertain you I have included a short video.

Well Shit! Gun Sales edition

Let the gubment hand outs begin.

Just a note for the republicans, get a candidate that is not a fucking moderate.  This is some bullshit.  Every time we worry about the fucking independents!  Just pick an actual conservative and see what happens. 

I know the gun industry is doing back flips thanks to the re-election of the best gun salesman in history.

Gun Post...finally! Pocket Pistol Edition

I know that I began this journey with some badass posts about guns then I went and began ranting about politics and stupid shit like McD's fucking up my order.  Well here you go on the gun tip!

Pocket pistol!

Yea! I said it! What of it! 

Over the years I have seen a plethora of people for/against pocket carry.  If you listen to the argument they range from people not wanting anything less that a full size 1911 (who would carry anything less?); to people that would rather not carry anything, than carry a puny little .32 cal pocket pistol.  Well guess what?  I am a huge fan of pocket pistols! 

Would you like to know why?

Cause they are fucking easy to hide! 

I am not one fortunate enough to be able to wear my Blackhawk pants with my tactical boots, tactical socks, riggers belt, tanto blade SOG and douche vest to hide the 20" bull barreled AR-15 that is my EDC weapon.  I forgot to mention the full size Limited Edition Tactical Kimber 1911 with light that I carry SOB loaded to the gills with 4 back up "clips".  

If you actually EDC an AR-15 due to being an armed service member, THANK YOU!  Please disregard the rest of the nonsense. 

Well guess what?  I have to wear slacks and at a minimum a golf shirt daily.  This fashion choice prohibits me from carrying anything other than a pocket pistol, which is my little Kel-tec .32 (originally bought during the .380 shortage).  It is comfortable, it fucking works, and it is small enough that I actually carry the damn thing on a daily basis.  So I guess you could put me in the group of people who believe the gun that you carry is the best kind of gun.

Do I think that a .32 is the most effective round?  Fuck NO!  Do I think that anyone would want to get shot by one?  Fuck NO!

If you can find a way to squeeze a .50 into a pocket (must fit in a normal pocket) pistol that can shoot without ripping off my hand, I will by 2 tomorrow. 

Would I rather have a .32 than just my knife?  Any fucking day of the week!  At worst case I can really piss someone off before I subject them to my back up .22 derringer that I keep in my handy dandy taint holster!  Remember 2 is 1, 1 is in my taint. (don't worry! I keep it in condition 3) 

So in summation, if you want to carry a gun, buy a gun you will actually carry.  Then carry the damn thing!

So you wanted a gun post?  I hope I didn't disappoint.  

There will be an election post! Just you wait!

It's for your safety

Well, it sounds like Baltimore has officially gone down the shitter along with the rest of the north east.

The gubment is going to start recording all conversations on their buses. But that's fine, it going to keep you safe!

What do you think about this one? I find it funny how if you mention "big brother" you're a nut job. But when it happens are you still nuts?

Let the Boo-hooing begin! Douche Canoe edtion

It doesn't matter who wins, the other side will be bitching and moaning for the next 2 months.  Hopefully DOG 2012 will pull this one out.  She has mentioned that pooping in the neighbor's yard is the best revenge.  On the upside, those shitty ads will (hopefully) be off my TV.

I am a fan of the commercials sometimes, just for the hyperbole.  You get some not far from  " (insert GOP candidate here) forces old people to cook meth in their bathtub, if you vote for (insert democrat here) I will not make old people cook meth in their bathtub.  This message paid for by the"

Speaking of TV, does anyone else loathe the Geico commercials with the two douches (douche canoe) playing the guitar and mandolin?  Hey I have a question for Geico.  How fucking annoying are your commercials? More annoying than a political ad...go fuck yourself. 

Got our home inspection for the sale this morning, wish us luck!  Hopefully we will be good to go for the closing on our hacienda.

Gotta go to work!

Cock punching...old people edition

This is funny / disturbing...commentary below

Does anyone else feel the excuses coming?  How many times did they reference "stealing the election"? 

Think they are trying to start the narrative?  Let me break it down for you!  This is the best way to go into the election.  The commies win they can say, "see even with you trying to fix the election, we still won!"  If the commies lose they can say, " you stole the election, so you didn't really win!" 

Its like playing ro-sham-bo with a eunuch! 

I am a most irreverent person, however this is a bit over the line during election season.  Politically, I want to say "if a republican did this, the media would shit a brick".  However, the measuring stick is slanted in the commies direction.

I really hope 'ol Mitt wins...then Fox News should run an ad that says "Nanny nanny boo boo- stick your head in doo doo!

Victory! Townhome living edition

We finally got an offer on our house.  It had been for sale for a while and I had given up hope of it actually selling.  This is some of the best news I have had in a while.  Looks like the rednecks are going to be moving on to a, hopefully, bigger domicile and town home living will be in our rear view. 

For those of you that have never lived in a townhome, I do not reccomend it.  Especially if you are planning on having a family of any size!  The lack of outdoor space is a huge drawback!  Finally we get to start looking at bringing our stuff out of storage.
