THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

WHAT'S A NICE GUY LIKE ME DOING IN A PLACE LIKE THIS? (Or, HOME, SWEET HOME!)

.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN 

and TO WHOEVER DON'T GIVE A CRAP:

I am currently working on an E-Ticket blog bit...

.
.
...about Communism and Communists. In other words, a blog bit about at least half of your neighbors. Unfortunately, it's taking longer than anticipated primarily due to the medication that my doctor has prescribed for me: 355 CC's of Mad Dog 20/20 administered twice hourly.
.
Still, I hope to have it completed and published here soon. ...Or at least before the Second Coming of The Heavenly Gardener who will water the flowers and uproot the weeds.

In the meantime, I'm posting this bit o' fluff to tide your impatient self over.

Below are, word-for-word, some texts I sent to a couple o' blokes yesterday:

Rode my bike to Walmart for a blood pressure tester. Decided to stop in at Dilligas Saloon for the Breakfast of Champions: Whiskey,
Icky, and popcorn.
.
Coolest 5-Star Dive (with a capital D) bar I've seen in a long time! Right in the middle of Reno's ghetto: 4th Street. ("Negatively 4th Street", to twist Dylan.)
.
They've got "A Country Boy Can Survive" by Bocephus playing on the jukebox right now.

Unnamed Friend: I'd say that's a perfect way to lower that blood pressure.

I've been in Reno 2 years now and rode and drove by this place countless times. I always had the same thought: That looks like a dangerous place.
.
.
And it's only half a stone's throw from the now-closed and totally infamous "Ruben's Cantina".
.
.
Today, knowing I'd be riding my bike near Dilligas Saloon to get to Walmart, I decided to check it out. So, I put on a "Deplorables" T-shirt.
.
"Proud Member Of The Basket Of Deplorables"
.
And of all the rotten luck, they're playing Bocephus on the jukebox. Not a Hellary voter in the dive!!
.
.
So I bought a round of drinks for the bar. Gotta reward that shit!
[:^)}


Unnamed Friend: Ha! That sounds like a damn good time. Us Trumpers, we're good folk (even if we're women-hating racists).

Yeah, for being the scum of the world, we ain't half bad.

Phuqin' Reno! Can't find a fight even when u look for one. Reno Sux!

I went looking for Dilligas Saloon photos on the Internet today to post on this blog bit but I couldn't find hardly any at all. It's probably Al Gore's fault.

What I did find though, was the official Dilligas Saloon website and something somewhat shocking. Apparently, by day, Dilligas is just a funky dive bar. But by night, it turns into [link:) THIS! Who-da thunk it?!

  1. I don't know why you didn't think I'd like this. I think it is funny as hell!

    I think you should drop by the "dangerous bar" some evening in your fishnets and lace and get ready to PAR- TAY!

    I think that bar is dangerous in ways you did not expect from lookin'.

    Are you sure they were playing Bocephus and not John Anderson when you walked in??

    1. Hot Damn! I needs me some "Charlotte Johnson"!

      Country musik with B-3 -- who-da thunk it? You could put B-3 on Green Day and I would love it. (Well... maybe not hate it, anyway. Ha!)

      SHEBOYGANBRO, I figgered you'd like the Leon Cobarde bit. But I thought you might not like this post because it seems to be endorsing whiskey, beer, and popcorn. And I know how your religion condemns the eating of popcorn.
      [:^)}

      And, yes, I shamefacedly confess that I was sort of... "not consciously avoiding a physical confrontation with voters of the opposite persuasion" by wearing that particular T-shirt. HA! And I thought you might disapprove o' dat.

      I wouldn't have engaged in a barroom brawl though. I merely would have had a reply... and a "leftply"... for anyone who got too uppity with me about the T-shirt.

      Truthfully, in real life, the place looks way more rundown and dangerous than the above photo indicates. That photo is obviously very old. The sign now looks ancient. I think that entire section that mentions "lunch" and "dinner" is gone now. And, no, they don't serve lunch or dinner. Unless your idea of lunch is "Lay's" potato chips, and your idea of dinner is getting "Laid".

      Alright, I'm outta here. Over & Out.

  2. High blood pressure? You? No way! You're the happiest, most optimistic, most unopinionated guy I know!

    Thank God you have such smart friends to keep you calm.

    1. BEER BROTHER, just think how high my blood pressure would be if not for the daily meditation sessions!

      I keep my blood's ABV high so that everything is BALANCED in a very healthy way.

      Hmmm.... Come to think of it, if I meditated LESS, I'd have to drink MORE.

      Hmmm... Hmmm...., I say.

    1. I know. I was really surprised to find that out because the place is a dive in a dive-y part of town. Not exactly the place or area where I might think to go looking for a "hook-up". But I guess if "class" is irrelevant to a person...

      I did notice the bar had, like, red velvet curtains, some paintings of nudes, a fish tank, and a small dance floor. Not the sort of thing one normally sees in a gin mill. And THAT'S the reason I thought it was the "Coolest 5-Star Dive bar I've seen in a long time!"

      Afterwards, when I found out what the place REALLY was by night, that stuff seemed to make a bit more sense.
