3:36 pm - Just for the record....
I get asked this question a lot....

Why do you NEED an AK47?

The answer is: I don't. However, if I wanted to live in a country where I only got what I needed, I'd move to China. Got it?


I should probably post-date this entry a couple of years so that it stays at the top of my journal.

3:25 pm - Tech Shit
I'm posting this everywhere just so that CenturyStink gets the egg on their face that they deserve. For those of you "in the know" about telecom circuits you should probably know that CenturyLink is both the NSP and the LEC for this circuit.

Background: We have a DS3 circuit in Jacksonville, NC that we've been having intermittent problems with for the past year. Every time the trouble starts again, I call them and open a ticket, and every time they send some dumbass kid out with a loopback plug who always says that it's my router and CenturyLink refuses to do anything further with it until we moan and fuss a lot. They will do this even when we replace several thousand dollars worth of our equipment right before their very eyes.

So was the case this time. We have our account manager escalate the ticket, and on Wed 4/16, the following annotation was put in the ticket:

"Called T3 group to escalate ticket., spoke to Duane, demarc has been proven by LEC, CPE trouble is the RFO."

Bullshit. We replaced the CPE. So after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, we finally get them to agree to a vendor meet, so that all parties involved in this circuit can hash it out until the problem is resolved. CenturyLink shows up again, and guess what? They find out that THEIR equipment is fried. Ticket note from 4/23/2014:

"Hello
The local carrier reported inside wiring issue while onsite and will be redispatching to investigate further and repair."


Now what was that about MY equipment being faulty?

Fuck you, CenturyLink.

After they fixed their shit, my expensive DS3 now works again.

current mood: foul

6:25 pm - This makes me sick
So unless you've been living in a cave, you've all heard about the whole controversy with Wikileaks. You've probably also seen all of the news reports about the group known as Anonymous[1] who have been attacking web sites operated by corporations that have done whatever they can to make Wikileaks life difficult. You probably also know that it's against U.S. Federal law to attack a web site and disrupt its operation, or to assist others in doing so.

But... did you know that there's another group of individuals that have launched the same kind of attack against Wikileaks? Did you know that this same group has launched similar attacks against sites that they (and corporate American interests) think are bad for you? Sites such as The Pirate Bay?

I read a news article today where the FBI served 40 search warrants in its investigation into Anonymous[2]. This is in addition to the FBI raiding an ISP in Texas last week to steal a computer used as a chat server to coordinate the denial of service attacks[3]. What I haven't read, however, is anything where the FBI has served search warrants or raided anybody with regards to the attacks against Wikileaks and the other sites, in spite of it being the EXACT SAME CRIME. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that there's something sinister going on here. The FBI is only selectively enforcing the law. The law that is supposed to protect me and you is only being used to try to cover the government's ass and protect corporations.

Arson is illegal. It's just as illegal for me to go set fire to a known drug dealer's house as what it would be for me to go set fire to my boss' house.

Furthermore, the FBI is devoting limited resources to investigating something that is relatively benign and is being perpetrated mostly by teenagers. They could take these same resources and go after some real criminals, but of course that would be too hard, and most Federal agents really don't know how to do their jobs that well, so they cherry pick.

IT IS TIME FOR THIS TO STOP.

If you haven't already figured it out. The White House, Capitol Hill, the FBI, CIA, IRS, DHS, TSA, and every other governmental agency out there is too busy trying to cover its ass, fight two pointless wars, and protecting megacorporations to give a rat's ass about me and you.

IT IS TIME FOR THIS TO STOP.

Even if you disagree with what Julian Assange and Wikileaks has done, even if you think that internet piracy is a really bad thing, surely you can see what is going on here and how this is not a good thing.

IT IS TIME FOR THIS TO STOP.

Our government does not give a shit about us. It's time to take to the streets and let people know what is going on with this country before it's too late. THIS MEANS YOU.

I'm sure the FBI is going to be showing up at my door now because of this post. But I don't care. I'm not advocating violence. I'm not telling people to park Ryder trucks filled with explosives in front of Federal buildings. I'm not telling people to hijack airplanes and crash them into skyscrapers. But what I am telling you is that it is time that we sent our government a clear message that they can not ignore that we are sick of this shit and we are not going to tolerate it anymore.

Did you ever wonder what happened to the America that we learned about in elementary school? The land of the free, home of the brave, et cetera? I have never known that America. Let's make it happen.

Also, if you read this and you think to yourself "I don't see what the big deal is" then most likely you're part of the problem.

Take this message, fax it, Xerox it, email it, post it to your blog... get the word out there. The only thing I ask is that if you leave my name on it that you do not change ANYTHING in this.

I will be posting this to all of my "online presences" so apologies in advance if you see this more than once.

1:21 pm - Terrorist threats, seriously?

A former Duluth police officer received a 60-year sentence Tuesday for shooting another officer and attacking a woman while drunk, according to WSB-TV.

Jay Dailey, 44, was convicted in June on three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and one count of battery and terroristic threats.

Dailey's attorney, Jeff Sliz told WSB-TV he plans to appeal. According to testimony, Dailey was drunk when the Feb. 1 incident occurred, resulting in him firing shots at Paul Phillips, an off-duty Fulton County police officer.

The incident began when Dailey chased down a female motorist, faked an injury and proceeded to pepper spray the woman when she attempted to call 911.

Authorities also claim Dailey told her she was ruining his life and threatened to kill her.

As anybody who knows me will tell you, I am certainly not one to defend a police officer when he fucks up. I fucking hate cops and love reading about when they fuck up. In fact, I think I am going to start printing out these news articles and keeping them with me so that when some dickwad police officer tries to tell me that I should trust the police, I will have a whole stack of reasons to counter his argument. HOWEVER...... terroristic threats? Are you fucking kidding me? I think this whole "terrorism" thing is way overblown nowadays. It seems that I can threaten to hand out a good old-fashioned asswhipping to somebody and suddenly I am an OMGTERRORIST. What a fucking joke. What's an even bigger joke is that the sheeple in this country eat this shit up hook, line, and sinker, because they're so scared that there might be another 9-11-2001. Sorry, America, but you've already let the terrorists win. Have a nice day.

12:06 am - A Dream and an update
I have some really, really trippy dreams sometimes. I would love to document some of the shit that I dream about, but the problem is that I can never remember enough details after I wake up. Last night's dream wasn't nearly as trippy as a lot of them (you will see the irony in this in a minute) but since I actually remember most of it, I will write it down here.

I was somewhere... I'm not sure where, and I was talking to this chick. She was a relatively attractive chick, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and was wearing a white shirt. I think we were talking about music. In the middle of the conversation, she pulls out two joints and a vial of PCP and proceeds to make herself some sherm sticks. She offers one to me which I decline. She gets upset at me over this. She then proceeds to try to dose me with the PCP by putting some of it on my skin. This freaks me out, for I have watched way too many videos on TV and read too many stories of how fucked up people get on angel dust. So I go find an ER, and tell them what happened and explain to them that I am scared shitless and that I need some help because I have no idea what is going to happen to me while I'm under the influence of this stuff. The last thing I remember before waking up was sitting in the ER lobby watching TV, and I think I was starting to get some color visuals from the PCP.

I don't even know if PCP can be absorbed through the skin like LSD or not, but in Jeff's Dream Land it apparently can be.

In other news.. went to The Masquerade tonight and saw Audra Mae. I'm in love. This chick has wicked, wicked talent. I can't say much for the other bands that she's touring with, but if you can catch her show, DO IT.

Also... I bought a new toy last month. A 1979 Jeep CJ5.





I knew it was going to need some work, but I didn't quite realize exactly how much work I was going to have to put into it right away. So... guess what I spent Father's Day doing? Here let me illustrate...





Now...I used to HATE working on cars. In fact, I haven't done any serious work on a vehicle since I was in my early 20's (and I'm now 37) so this is a pretty serious endeavor for me. Strangely enough, however, it's been enjoyable. Of course once I start putting Humpty Dumpty back together again I might be singing a completely different tune.

So, Livejournal. What have you been up to lately? Tell me a story.

8:46 pm - Hayley Williams' tiny titties
So last night the big topic on Twitter was a leaked picture of Hayley Williams' (lead singer of Paramore for those of you living in caves) tits. While it can't be proven for sure, but what seems to have happened was that she got a new Blackberry and decided to christen it by taking a topless shot that she then probably attempted to text to her boyfriend Chad Gilbert. Instead of sending it to him, it inadvertently made it's way to her Twitpic account where it was deleted only seconds later. However, it wasn't deleted soon enough. Within hours the rather bland shot was posted all over the various corners of the internet, and Haley became Queen of teh Intardnets, or something.

Now here's where the lulz begin. Hayley tries to dowplay the incident on her Twitter, claiming that she was hacked. However this makes no sense, though, because somebody had to have taken the picture in the first place, right? Further inspection of the EXIF data reveals that the picture was likely to have come from Hayley's Blackberry, not to mention the fact that the girl in the picture not only looks exactly like her, but is also wearing the exact same necklace that Hayley is wearing in a good number of the 592,000 pictures of her that are on the internet. Why she couldn't have just 'fessed up to a misdirected text instead of lying about it is beyond me, but I guess Gregory House is once again proven correct in that Everybody Lies(tm).

On top of that, the drooling hordes of Parawhores (as they so classily label themselves) converge upon Twitter comforting our poor topless princess as if she has lost a dear family member or something.

The biggest lulz was @JaceyBBY's attempt to start a #boobsforhayley trending topic by posting a rather nice topless shot of herself but failing to get anybody else other than a bunch of ugly guys to follow suit.

Other gems:

pika_pika_rawr: @yelyahwilliams , i miss your tweets. hope you're okay darlin. we're all here whenever you wanna talk. <3 x (:

ibleedcolours: @yelyahwilliams You're right, we'll all support you no matter what.. Keep your head high, you're an amazing person, nothing can change that.

MacBNE: @yelyahwilliams geez Hayley! this is insane, i'm feeling so down and all i need is you :'( i wish i knew you so you could come over & hug me

..ad nauseum

On the other hand we have people like @ohcuts who apparently think that a single misdirected topless shot of somebody automatically makes them a slut. Way to get up on your moral high-horse, eh?


I think I'm getting too effin' old for the internet.

-J

4:54 pm - Is Robert Mueller the new McCarthy?
Twice this week I've seen news articles where the FBI is wanting to invade the privacy of Americans more than it's already doing.

First up:

The FBI wants ISPs to keep records of every web site you visit. That's right. EVERY web site, for every American internet user. While it's unclear how detailed they want this information to be, you can bet you that they'll be wanting access to this information WITHOUT A WARRANT OR PROBABLE CAUSE.


Next:

The FBI also wants access to location tracking information about your cell phone, again WITHOUT A WARRANT OR PROBABLE CAUSE.

This is frightening. I already see far too often where cops have gotten really creative with circumventing the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. For example, if they pull you over for a traffic stop, and decide they want to search your car and you don't give them consent to a warrantless search, they will arrest you (thus giving them "probable cause") or they will bring out a drug dog and if the dog "indicates" then that's also "probable cause."

I want to know what's so fucking hard about getting a warrant. Seriously, man. If you want the information that bad, or want to make the search that bad, then certainly you've got a good enough reason that you can present it to a judge and GET A GODDAMN WARRANT, right? If you can't get a goddamn warrant then apparently you don't have a good enough reason to be nosey.

Fuck cops, man, and FUCK THE FBI, and fuck anybody else that wants to trample all over my country's Constitution.

9:59 pm - Look, people...
If I go beat up a black person just because they're black, it's racism.

If a black person comes and beats me up just because I'm white, it's racism.


It's a fucking two way street. You political correctness weenies need to fucking understand this.

A lot of the situations where dumb white people have claimed "racism" has been pretty stupid. But also a lot of the situations where black people (and other minorities) have claimed "racism" have been pretty stupid. This does not make the real claims any less real.

I'm so fucking sick and tired of this shit. I'm in favor of gay rights. However, I will STRONGLY oppose giving gay people MORE rights than straight people. I'm also in favor of minority rights. However, I will STRONGLY oppose, and fight til the death, against giving minorities MORE rights than white people.

Call me a homophobe or a redneck or a racist or any of your other stupid labels because of this. I don't care. It doesn't make it any less true.

If you disagree, you can kindly go fuck yourselves.

1:03 pm - There's no shortage of douchebaggery in this world....
So we went to the free Skeletonwitch show last night. They're one of my favorite newer bands, and as usual we managed to get right up front against the rail, and as anticipated, we had a great time. Except...

Throughout most of the show, there was some douchebag right behind us who kept pretty much climbing up on our backs, pressing right up against us, not watching where his hands were going, and just being a general nuisance. There was a few times where I wasn't sure if he was just really getting into the show or if he was trying to fuck me in the ass right there in front of everybody. I've always been one to preach "if you have problems with being touched and bumped around by strangers then you really have no business being up front at a metal show" so I tried to keep my cool and just focus on the show. However this guy was just too much, and the more I tried to give him the hint to knock it off, the worse he got. He was doing the same shit to see_me_burn and getting on her nerves too, and she was trying to give him the hint as well. I ended up having to turn around and give him a shove that would've knocked him to the ground if it hadn't been for the crowd behind him. Of course then, he starts shit with Jen, because apparently he was too big of a pussy to directly start shit with me.

This didn't go over very well with the other people that were in our immediate vicinity, so somebody ended up dragging him out of there. It probably saved him a lot of embarassment because he was either going to get his ass beat by me...or BY A GIRL.

Anyhow, moving on to the next douchebag...

I found myself reading this article about what it's like to be poor that seems to have been written right after Hurricane Katrina. So I'm looking through the comments and I see this asshole named "Derek" make this comment:

Being in a “socialist” country makes some of those look really weird, sometimes in one direction, sometimes in the other. They fall into three categories:

- the ones that are still spot on, whichever country you’re from
- the ones where the phrase “being poor” coexists with the phrase “your car”. People who own cars, hell, people who have someone in the family who ever learned to drive, can’t be poor!
- on the other hand, there are the ones where being poor means good hospitals and good schools aren’t for you. We were poor, not *animals*.

As to the last, I’m thankful to have grown up a civilised first-world country.



Then he makes a second post to make sure that everybody knows that he's from the UK.

People like this make me want to start punching British babies. Seriously? Do you really think your country is some kind of fucking utopia or something? Seriously? The UK is pretty much a dump, with it's own unique social problems (chavs anyone?) and some pretty unchecked violent crime. So what makes your country so much more "civilised" than the US, Derek? If you think it's because you have stricter gun control, or socialized medicine, then you're a fucking tool. I would love for some cocky Brit to go on about shit like this while he's within arm's reach of me, because things would get really exciting in a hurry, and he'd find out just how "uncivilised" some of us Americans are.

The same goes for some of you Canadian assholes that think that your country is so much better. The only time anybody gives a shit about Canada is during hockey season.

It's not that I think that the US is a perfect place. It definitely could use some improvement, but don't act like Canada and the UK are so much better, because they're not.

Shame on you!

I was thinking about switching my wireless internet service over to you from Sprint when my contract with them expires, because they're a bunch of hillbillies, but if this is how you treat your customers, then you can go fuck yourselves.

Net neutrality, people. Do it NOW.

Which language(s) do you currently speak? If you could learn only one other language, what would you choose, and why?


English and Hick

Spanish, because it would be the most useful language to have as a second language in the US.

3:10 pm - Fuck Homeowner's Associations
A veteran of three wars who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor is now facing an unlikely enemy — his neighbors.

Source: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,579147,00.html

This whole HoA thing has gotten completely out of control. I can understand the necessity of them to keep Billy Bob from leaving his rusty '68 Fairlane propped up on blocks out in public view in his driveway while his grass grows 2 feet tall, but now, subdivisions that have Homeowner's Associations are so encumbered by bullshit regulations that they really negatively affect the quality of life of...the HOMEOWNERS.

I remember reading about a decade ago about a subdivision in Charlotte, NC that prohibited you from parking any sort of pickup truck out in public view. This includes shiny, brand spanking new trucks that look much nicer than some yuppie douchebag's Volvo. What the fuck, man?

Anyhow, back to the situation at hand. From the article...

Barfoot is one of the country's last living World War II veterans who received the Medal of Honor. He also served in the Korean War and the Vietnam War and earned a Purple Heart. In WWII, Barfoot showed his mettle in Carano, Italy, where he single-handedly destroyed a set of German machine gun nests, killed eight enemy soldiers, took 17 prisoners and stared down a tank before destroying it and killing its crew — all in a single day. Exhausted by his herculean efforts, he still managed to move two of his wounded men 1,700 yards to safety.

Ya know... I think when you've fought in THREE wars and won a Congressional Medal of Honor, you should be pretty much given free reign to do whatever the hell you want. I mean look at this shit, that's some straight up Audie Murphy style heroism right there. Hell, if this man wants to walk right up to Barack Obama, punch him in the dick, and say "Take that, darkie!" he should be able to do so. After all, this man has done more for his country than Obama will ever do, judging from his abysmal performance so far.

The members of this Homeowner's Association, and the law firm that represents them, should be ashamed of themselves. I love how they claim that it's not the US Flag itself that's being condemned, but the flagpole. This is a convenient way of circumventing the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005.

I would like to see some Veterans groups organize a protest against this law firm and this Homeowner's Association. I also encourage acts of vandalism and violence toward the law firm and it's employees. :)

What kind of country do we live in where we are not allowed to display our country's colors? Does anybody know of any other countries where this happens? THIS IS AMERICAN SOIL, AND WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DISPLAY THE AMERICAN FLAG ANYWHERE ON IT.

All you crybabies that get offended when you see Old Glory can all eat shit and die.

-Jeff

UPDATE:

The Homeowner's Association has dropped their request to take down the flagpole:

10:22 pm - N.C. Parade Organizers Ban Mrs. Claus From Holiday March
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,576172,00.html?test=latestnews

Organizers of the Raleigh parade told The News & Observer of Raleigh that they are just following policy and children would be confused if there were two people in the Saturday parade in Santa suits.

Seriously? Seriously?!?

Wow. I'm just a dumb ol' Hillbilly that grew up in West Virginia and I don't remember any of us kids being confused by Mrs. Claus. I thought you highfalutin' people down there in Raleigh were fancier and smarter than that?

Lately I've been finding myself feeling pretty dumb at times. I can't seem to keep the simplest shit straight in my head and I forget everything. I'm starting to think that it was the 12 years I spent in North Carolina that did this to me. Gods, your children are retarded if seeing Santa with Mrs. Claus "confuses" them.
