The Low-Key Oil Boom

low-key oil boom

Right now there is a Low-key oil boom going on in West Texas. Sparsely populated areas such as Winkler county are now slammed with massive amounts of oil field traffic. Believe me, I know.  It took me 45 to drive the 1.5 miles across the wee-little town of Kermit. It was bumper-to-bumper Peterbilts.

The low-key oil boom started the day Donald Trump was elected. No, not the day he took office, the day he was elected. When players in the oilfield knew Hillary Clinton wouldn’t kill their projects, they took them off the back burner and broke ground.

At that time, November 2016, oil was only about $40 to $50 a barrel. Despite the oil price slump from it’s heyday in 2014, when it peaked at $100+, activity started ramping up in the Permian Basin.

Companies found a way to turn a profit by taking advantage of lower costs. Rather than gouge each other as in the full-blown oil boom, they offered discounts commensurate with the lower oil price. Mostly by underpaying guys like me who swing the hammers.

When the Low-key Oil Boom took effect, places went from struggling to keep open to struggling to hire enough help. Add to that various geo-political factors driving oil up to $70 a barrel, and the low-key oil boom started coming on stronger. Hey, I even got a raise!

Other areas of the country such as the Dakotas and South Texas haven’t been revived by this Low-Key Oil Boom. That’s because the industry in Midland and Odessa is so robust that it can sustain itself.

In my own experience it seems that a big driver in the Low-key Oil Boom is construction of infrastructure and midstream facilities. For example, when oil was $100 a barrel, they were drilling like madmen and paying trucks to haul away the produced water.

But now, they’re focused more on efficiency. So rather than send salt water to the disposal by truck, they’re spending the capital on pipelines and pumping it there.

When the Low-Key Oil Boom first kicked off it brought more money but it was locals only. There weren’t too many guys from out-of-town. But that’s starting to change. Today, I got stuck behind a welder with Arkansas plates. Uh-oh. Looks like the Low-Key Oil Boom is going mainstream.

The FBI is run by Baby Boomers

fbi seal

The FBI is run by Baby Boomers. They’d rather protect the public from KNOWING about crime than actually stopping it. The American public wants the truth about the Las Vegas shooting but the FBI is sheltering us from it.

Think about daddy Baby Boomer with his little Millennial boy in his lap. It’s 1995. They’re reading a story about the Big Bad Wolf. But in this version, the Three Little Pigs take the time to talk to the Big Bad Wolf. They discover he’s just a misunderstood monster. So they become friends and the wolf stops huffing and puffing and blowing their house down.

Heart warming, right? Wrong! The Baby boomer sheltered his millennial son from the idea that there are creatures out there so evil in nature that the only solution is to kill them. Baby boomers sheltered millennials from basic survival instincts.

Now the FBI and all law enforcement run by Baby Boomers protects us Americans not from the Big Bad Wolves out there. They shelter us from knowing about them.

Look I saw this first hand in Boston. After the Boston Marathon bombing the Baby Boomers in charge told us all to shelter in place. Stupid idea since it left the streets clear for the terrorist to make more ground in his get-away.

All the military equipment the baby boomers brought in failed to find the guy. It was a retired rock musician smoking a cigarette on his back porch who saw Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Then when the police helicopter hovered above the boat where he was hiding, the Baby Boomer in charge of the man hunt made a daring decision. He dug deep and got the courage to issue a command that would cause controversy. Yes, it was gutsy, but it was the right thing to do. He gave the order to cut the video feed from the helicopter as the swat team moved in on the suspect.

He spared citizens of Boston, Massachusetts, New England, and all America the gruesome sight of pure evil on their televisions. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Now Baby Boomers in government could used sanitized words to describe the incident. Bostonians could say they are Boston Strong and will run marathons like they always have before.

Nobody is going to force Baby Boomers to admit that evil exists. And this is exactly what’s happening in Las Vegas.

I just watched a youtube video where a guy measured the time from when the bullets hit the concert venue to when the gun sounds reach the target. According to him, the discrepancies in time proves there was a second shooter. Big if true.

This basic calculation proves the FBI’s official single shooter narrative incorrect. But the Baby Boomers in journalism don’t want to press for information that proves evil exists. They, like the Baby Boomers in the FBI, want to settle us down like they did to their millennial kids. They want to pacify the anxiety rather than eliminate the cause.

But it gets worse with the FBI. This organization provided cover for organizations in our government to launder money from foreign entities to alter our public policy. This is bribery.

By the way, the Bible says bribery is evil. But baby boomers don’t think so.

When their millennial kids acted up they tried to bribe them into good behavior with Gogurt snacks, trips to Discovery Zone, and Nickelodeon television.  Now we have the FBI covering up the crimes of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family initiative while refusing to expose the evil of the Las Vegas shooter(s). This is what happens with Baby Boomers in charge. Baby Boomers are a morally corrupt, sexually perverse generation. They don’t want to see evil because they may see it in their own souls.

The Failed Christian Response to Charlottesville

Following the events of the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, many Christian leaders grandstanded each other to condemn what they characterized as hatred and racism.

I can’t blame anyone for concluding the Alt-right is terrible after taking a cursory glance at this rally. When the media shows swaztikas, klansmen, and a Dodge Challenger barreling through counter protesters, what other conclusion can you draw?

Guys, I beg you to use some discernment here. The Alt-right is an incredible opportunity for the gospel of Jesus Christ to gain huge ground among the millennial generation. Before you unequivocally denounce them, consider what that same media says about you.

They say you hate gays.

“Oh no, Jim, we don’t hate guys.”

Yes you do. I just saw on CNN pictures of Westboro Baptist Church holding signs that say God Hates Fags.

“They don’t represent all Christians”

Oh, so you support gay marriage?

“No. We believe that homosexuality is wrong. But hate the sin love the sinner.”

Well, according to liberals in the media, if you don’t support gay marriage, then you believe that God hate gays, just like the sign says.

“No, Jim, that’s a mischaracterization! The media shouldn’t associate all Christians with the Westboro Baptist Church.”

Oh, okay. Hold that thought. We can calibrate the media’s slander factor. That same media that’s says you hate gays says that the Alt-right hates black people.

Would my fellow Christians consider for one second that maybe, just maybe, the Alt-right doesn’t hate black people? You say hate the sin love the sinner. The Alt-right says we don’t hate black people we just love white culture.

These guys mustered around General Lee’s statue not to fight against some thing but to fight for something. These young men of the Alt-right took to the streets of Charlottesville to fight for their culture. In other words they are culture warriors. They fight in the culture war.

How long have you heard pastors lament we’re losing the culture war? Well, the Alt-right agrees that our culture is corrupt. So in a way they are our allies.

Hold on. I’m not suggesting that we Christians endorse the Alt-right or compromise our beliefs to make political bedfellows. What I’m saying is that from the common ground we have with the Alt-right, we can segue into discussing how our culture became so corrupt and how we can redeem it.

Look, our culture became rotten when it rejected Jesus Christ. That’s a cold hard fact that typical liberal snowflakes refuse to admit. They insist Christianity is the problem, which is a pure delusion.

Say what you will about the Alt-right. They’re not delusional liberals. They love the cold hard truth, however politically incorrect. Is there anything more truthful or politically incorrect than the gospel of Jesus Christ?

So while you run scared from these racists of the Alt-right, I remember Jesus words. “Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.” – John 4:35

There is no race war.

There is no race war

Too many people are saying that there’s a race war going on right now in America. Guys, open your eyes. There’s no race war.

When white men march in formation against a group of African Americans and people are left dead and wounded in the rubble of city streets, that’s a race war. You know, an actual battle where one side is black and the other white. However, when you look at Charlottesville you’ll see that almost every single person there is white — on both sides!

Of course to see this, you’ll need to zoom out from the narrow frame the media uses to deceive you. When you view as large a sample size as you can, you will be astounded by how few black people are involved in this so called race war.

If both sides of the battle line are white, then the battle lines aren’t drawn along racial lines. Where are the battle lines drawn then? Along ideological lines.

The war against ideas

The media obfuscates the underlying ideological battle. They post a headline that says “Counter-protesters Clash with White Supremacists” and they show footage of violent altercations.

They do this to deceive your aunt, who isn’t well informed about the situation. She just hears white supremacists and sees a scuffle on the street and cannot discern one side from the other. Aghast, she clutches her necklace and says, “Oh, dear heavens,” and blames the white supremacists for all the violence she observes.

After all white supremacists are by definition the most vile creatures on the planet. And without actually seeing any black people your aunt assumes those nasty white supremacists beat them to the back of the bus.

But let’s take away these manipulative labels so we can get a more informed understanding.

Alt-right vs. Antifa

These supposed white supremacists are actually a group identified as the Alt-right, which stands for alternative right. That’s how they self-identify, but the media refuses to use that title. Alt-right doesn’t cause the same visceral revulsion as the term white supremacist does.

The Alt-right’s main point is that white people are vilified and mistreated in their own society. The fact the media won’t call them the Alt-right proves their point!

The Alt-right faces off against a sinister group called Antifa which stands for anti-facist. Their goal? To punch nazis in the face. And they decide who’s a nazi. Yes, they use violence to fight violence. The act like they’re doing gods work, yet they completely mask their identities with black clothes, masks, and glasses. So it’s actually easy to identify Antifa. Look for the unibombers.

This is what I want everyone to see about Antifa. There are no black people. They are not a racially diverse group. By liberal standards that makes them racists.

Antifa are racists fighting racism– violently.

Ok, I know that someone will find some black guys in Antifa. Well, I can find a blacker guy in the altright. Introducing Alt-right Aaron. A black dude with dreads and a Nazi hat. Here’s his twitter.

alt-right aaron
alt-right Aaron

Yes, the Alt-right and the Antifa are at war. Despite how prominently the issue of race plays into that ideological battle, it’s not a race war. Both groups are predominantly white millennial men.

And what about the Black Lives Matter protesters? I don’t even think they were in Charlottesville. They were in Boston though. But they didn’t fight white people. They attacked the black cops.

Antifa’s next move. The black pawn.

black pawn

I’m going to make a bold prediction right here. If the Alt-right and Antifa have another showdown, the Antifa will recruit black thugs as mercenaries to fight the good ol’ boys of the Alt-right.

That is if they even have another showdown. I’m not sure if the Alt-right is motivated to take the streets again.

The Antifa enjoys withering cover fire from the media. They rarely face the consequences for their actions. But anyone merely associating with the Alt-right risks getting doxxed and losing his job.

The advantage goes to Antifa in the court of public opinion, inasmuch as liberals on social media and the mainstream media can censor it. But on the mean streets of reality, the Alt-right kicks ass.

Why would the faggots of the Antifa think they can fight the Alt-right? Antifa includes doughy fat chumps wearing dresses and hair permed like a middle aged women. I’m talking about the men! You think I’m exaggerating?! These guys literally fit their man boobs into the women’s dresses they wear, see here.

Then you have the Alt-right who include combat veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with tattoos all over their cannonball shoulders. I don’t care about the tough talking Antifa with their black hoodies and masks. The only punches they’ve ever thrown was by pressing the x button on their PlayStation 2.

No contest!

On top of their pathetic firepower, the Antifa employ suicidal tactics. Think about it. They take to the streets and block traffic!

Look, if you thought there were evil, Neo-nazi, KKK fascists at large, why would stand in front of their cars? Especially if you’re an overweight woman and they’re driving a high horsepower Dodge Challenger.

Now, I get the premise. They want to poke the bear. Then when they get the claw, the media will run stories about how terrible the bear is. Sounds great on paper. But their goal is to win by losing. And that’s what their doing. Loosing.

It’s like the Indianapolis colts raising a banner saying AFC Finalist. No matter what you say about the moral victory, you’ve lost the actual battle. And that’s demoralizing.

How can you fundraise and recruit members when you’re asking them to get injured or possibly die just to make racists look bad? You’re asking them to be pawns. White liberal pawns who believe in gun-control facing-off against the Alt-right armed to the teeth.

Sorry, white people don’t play pawns.

So right now, this week, as the Antifa nurse their injuries from Charlottesville and Phoenix, they will realize that in their violent battle against violent racists, they will need to call in the black cavalry.

Yes, I predict Antifa will use black people like pawns to take and deliver the brunt of the violence in the skirmish. Antifa will recruit blacks to do their dirty work.

It makes perfect sense. If Antifa resorts to violence to fight violence, then they get racist to fight racism. Bold prediction, right? Well, when you see it happen come back to to let me know.

And let me conclude with this. The Alt-right versus Antifa is really a battle between whites. There’s almost as many minorities in the Alt-right as in Antifa, in either case it’s very little. The liberal media needs the black faces fighting the white Alt-right to really stoke the race war they lust for oh, so bad.

The Boston Free Speech Rally was a total dud.

boston free speech rally

The Boston free speech rally was a total dud. As a former Boston resident, I predicted exactly what happened.

First, nothing in Boston lives up to the hype. Every massive snow storm forecasted by meteorologists fizzles out. Every time they trumpet traffic Armageddon because of an event such as the Tall Ships or the DNC, you end up breezing downtown to plentiful parking spots. Every spring training that they say this is the year the Red Sox will win it all, why, that’s the year the Yankees take the American League.

So when mayor Marty Walsh prepared for massive unrest because of hordes of violent white supremacists, I knew to bet against the hype.

Sure enough, there were zero white supremacists. None. They can crunch the numbers at MIT. The number of racist white supremacists adds up to zero.

Instead, there were hordes of counter-protesters all thinking of themselves as bold anti-racist warriors. And they looked as pathetic as a toddler in pajamas fighting a boogeyman under the bed with a flashlight.

You gotta understand that Boston is hokey. It’s the littlest big city. Everyone there is an over educated, off-the-charts nerd. I call them hyper-rational. That’s to say they’re totally gullible.

So you have the media galloping through Boston shouting, “The racists are coming, the racists are coming!”

And all these chicks thought back to college when their sociology professor Ms. Rubenfieldstien warned them about white supremacists in the south. You know, the south? It’s everywhere outside of New York and New England.

With images of the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally fresh in their minds, they slam down their soy latte and say, “No, racists. Not in my city.”

Then they became the heroes in the African-American themed novels they had to read again and again in school. Seriously, how many times do you have to read Their Eyes Were Watching God before you get a bachelors’ degree?

Boston is their chance, their shining moment, to relive the civil rights protests of hippies idolized in pop history.

Thousands of counter protestors drove all the way into Boston from the Cape, the Berkshires, and the White Mountains. (Wow. What a waste of a perfectly good Saturday.) They marched to the common from the black part of town, glorying in the thought of Martin Luther King taking the same route.

As they approached the Common, they gulped and got ready for the hellish fury of racists.

Amassed against the barricades erected by the Boston Police, they looked out on the middle of Common. There, a gazebo sat like a lonely island in a sea of grass. A dozen or so speakers stood in that gazebo looking out to the crowds that felt miles away.

These conservatives addressed the crowd. Their first words? A ringing condemnation of racism.

Whoops. I guess you can’t fight racists if there are no racists. Except reality never stops the delusions of a liberal.

The scene that played out next,  I could best liken to a group of kids playing make-believe. But one group is playing war while the others are playing zoo. Let me explain.

Muppet Baby Antifa

Remember when you were a kid and you played make believe? There were set make believe tropes.  There was war, cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, zoo, and doctor. So you’d be like hey let’s play war, and all the kids there would know exactly what to do. Or the creepy kid would shut the door and be like hey, let’s play doctor.

Well anyways, imagine for a second a room full of little kids. Let’s say there’s 12 of them. Ten of them are like, “Let’s play war. Pew! Pew! Pew!”

But one of them is like “Let’s play zoo. I’m a lion. Roar!”

And his buddy is like, “Yea, I’m a llama…” and he stops to think what sound a llama makes.

But the ten kids playing war are like “Kill the bad guys, pew pew pew!”

And they make finger guns at the two kids playing zoo. But those two kids just crawl around the living room on all fours, one roaring, the other bleating because he’s not sure what noise a llama makes.

The ten other kids are like “Oh, no. Here comes the bad guys! Throw bombs!”

And they lob imaginary bombs making explosion sounds. Ten kids, vocally simulating the sounds of war while two make the noises of a zoo.

The kid who’s a lion gets fed up. He yells “Guys, guys, guys, stop! We’re not playing war. We’re playing zoo. I’m a lion!”

The ten other kids just play war harder. One of them pretends to get hit. “Ahh! He shot me with his laser eyes! Laser eyes, everyone, hide behind the couch. The bad guy’s a robot!”

The kids keep shooting him so he pretends to be a lion even harder. You know like roaring and stuff. But the kids pretending to play war just keep going pew pew pew. The kid who was the llama gets bored so he watches the Bagel Bites warm in the oven. 

Ok. Story over.

That’s what Boston was like, kids playing different pretend games concurrently. All these liberals are playing this imaginary game where they are fighting hate-filled racist bigots. But the conservative speakers played this pretend game that if they play by the rules and make a well crafted, rational argument then not only the crowd, but the American public and the media will change their opinions about the right.

Haha. Didn’t happen.

The love-trumps-hate liberals were there to fight racists. And when they couldn’t find them, they attacked the cops who were there to protect them from those evil white supremacists. Like I said, the whole event was a dud. No minds were changed. On top of all that, there were no good fights! Who’s kidding who? Everyone wanted carnage. I guess we’ll have to wait for the Bruins to take the ice to see a good fight in Boston.

In defense of United Airlines. The cops were black.

Black Cops beat United passenger

A lot of people came out against United Airlines after they forced a passenger off a plane. They said United beat the guy. They said that United was incompetent and they would boycott United.

You know what? I’m coming out in support of United. They didn’t beat that doctor. The black cops did.

A lot of people right now are like, “Jim, why you got to bring race into this?”

Because you do!

I used to live in a post-racial America where skin color was as inconsequential as hair color. That was when George Bush was president.

But now we’re in a post-post-racial America. We transitioned there when we elected Obama as president because he’s black to prove to ourselves that being black doesn’t matter. Since then, skin color has become all that matters.

In Obama’s post-post-racial America, when a cop shoots and kills a criminal, there’s no commendation for that officer’s heroics. Instead, there is a slander campaign against him. It’s a foregone conclusion that a white cop would only shoot a black man because he hates blacks.

So liberals set the precedent that we must observe and analyze race in all police matters where force is used. Ok, let’s bring race into the United Airlines situation.

A Chinese passenger refuses to give up his seat on a United Airlines Flight 3411, so the airline calls the cops at Chicago O’Hare Airport.

These huge black dudes show up. I don’t know if they’re full fledged police officers or what. Maybe they were just security. But is the Chinese guy even a real doctor?

Anyways, you know how white cops have the motto “To Serve and Protect?” Black cops motto is “Well, that escalated quickly.”

I’m not saying it’s a totally bad thing. White cops too often use passive aggressive commands and weasel words. That’s good for diffusing a tense situation, talking someone off a bridge, or hostage negotiation.

But there are times when we need black cops to show up and just beat the tar out of a bad guy before he makes a break for it.

Unfortunately, this United flight was not one of those times.

We had an irrational Chinese doctor throwing a tantrum like a Chinese toddler and when the black cops showed up it was like, okay, time for some Chinese takeout.

Think about how the Chinese guy feels to be sitting on a flight and told he had to get off after being offered $800 to voluntarily reschedule. Not only is he angry at the delay, he at least wants the money. So he starts a protest. But then these black dudes show up their heads are scraping the ceiling.

“Cmon get up.”

He throws a little more of a fit and bam he’s on the ground.

A white cop would have tried talking a little, building rapport, or negotiating. A white cop would have taken a few more hits and scratches from the Chinese before he resorted to physical force.

But not the black cops. They ain’t got time for that.

And so the video of the Chinese doctor being unceremoniously dragged from the plane went viral. And America was mistakenly lead to believe there was a huge beat down and United airlines was responsible.

I’m sorry, you can excuse my language, but that’s a bunch of malarkey.

The black cop grabbed the Chinese doctor and gave him a big heave ho. There wasn’t fists, and clubs, and tazers. You’re falling for the ancient Chinese art of shameful exaggeration. That’s how they cap off a good tantrum.

And how do you blame United Airlines for all this? Did you blame the convenience store Michael Brown robbed before white police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot him?

So rather than cheering bad publicity for a major corporation whose stock is certainly in your 401k, let’s have a talk about race. Black cops hate the Chinese. There I said it.

Transgender Wrestler a Typical Girl


If you can pick your gender why does it have to be just male or female?

When I wrestled in high school I should have chosen a third gender. A hyper-masculine gender. I mean even more masculine than I actually was (if you can imagine that). And to achieve this ideal of hypermasculinity, I would require doctor prescribed shots of trenbolone, a powerful anabolic steroid.

Of course, I would complain to the Boston Globe that the Massachusetts Wrestling Association did not accommodate us hypermasculine gendered wrestlers with our own state championship tournament. But I would reluctantly enter in the boy’s bracket where, thanks to the tren, I would advance farther than I actually did in high school wrestling.

That’s what I thought after hearing about Mack Beggs, the transgender boy (i.e mentally ill girl) wrestling in the girls’ tournament. Turns out she’s taking testosterone to “transition.” But USA Today tells us not to make a big deal of that:

Despite Beggs wanting to compete as a male, UIL regulations bar anyone from competing in a gender that doesn’t match their birth certificate. For his part, Beggs and his grandmother have continued to provide testosterone testing results to ensure that Beggs is legally within the range required to compete in the girls category.

-USA Today, Transgender boy wins controversial girls high school state title

Oh, okay. So she’s taking enough testosterone to become a boy. But not enough to disqualify her from competing as a girl. That contradiction makes perfect sense to liberals who believe gender stereotypes are meaningless social constructs until a female wants to be a male. Then liberals celebrate all those crude masculine behaviors they hitherto denounced.

You know what? Mack Beggs is a typical girl. She wants it both ways. She’s girl enough when it comes to her eligibility to wrestle as a girl. But she’s boy enough that the Texas regulators should have broken her free from the shackles of her female birth certificate.

Chick on Steroids Wins Texas Girls Wrestling Title

Perhaps you read the headline Transgender Boy Wins Girls’ High School Wrestling Title Amid Controversy and you thought, ah, yes, liberals have crashed into their own brick wall. A boy claiming to be a girl easily overpowered all the hapless chicks to win the girls state title.

Well, you’re wrong. It’s not what you think. It’s not a boy pretending to be a girl. It’s a girl pretending to be a boy.  The term “transgender boy” describes a mentally ill girl. And liberals, also mentally ill, want you to share in their gender delusions.

So you may be wondering really what’s the big deal. The girl is wrestling in the girl’s tournament. Well, read the Deadspin article:

Texas high school wrestler Mack Beggs wanted to compete as a boy this year. A transgender 17-year-old who began testosterone treatments in 2015, he hoped to join the boys’ wrestling team at his public high school in suburban Fort Worth. Because he was born female, however, the state’s University Interscholastic League required him to compete as a girl.

Ok, so the headline should read Chick on Steroids Wins Texas Girls Wrestling Title. Mack Beggs is taking testosterone. That’s  cheating!
