Daily Chuckle

There is an old saying: Youth and vitality give way to old age and treachery.

-------Before meeting Mr. Corti ----------------After meeting Mr. Corti-------



Have a chuckle... Read the story at the Daily Mail.

A Perfumed Skunk Is Still A Skunk

Bernie Madoff is going to prison for taking people's money by fraudulent representation.

How is that any different than this Cap & Trade scheme, or this so-called Stimulus borrowing. In fact isn't every promise uttered out of our Liar-in-Chief's mouth little more than what Madoff is guilty of?

And Now, Another Useless Fact



The sun is 330,330 times larger than the earth!

To get an idea how big it is... it is about 238,000 miles to the moon. The Sun is 865,000 miles in diameter. So the orbit of the moon is about half the diameter of the sun.

Thankfully this huge nuclear furnace doesn't pose near the danger that a small percentage of CO2 does in heating our planet.

Father's Day

I have heard David Gates wrote this song about losing his father. The video quality isn't that good but the point gets made.

It's been nine years since Dad passed away at about this time of the year. I share the sentiment... what I wouldn't give to have one more 'life update' conversation or a family guitar pickin session.

Wanted: Free Press Exerciser

We have the most imperialistic administration since Nixon whose political machine continues an arrogant disregard for the law. They make Nixon look like an amateur.

In Iran there is a major earthquake occurring in the political equation of that region. If those desiring liberty are able throw off the yoke of islamic repression then a blow will have been struck at the heart of worldwide islamic extremism by muslims themselves. The Islamic Republic of Iran directs and supplies these groups. Cut the root and the vine dwindles.

So while we are seeing what may be an extremely historical event what is our press reporting? Obama swats a fly as they go into a tizzy of 'oh the concentration, the resolve, the delivery'. I image Chris Matthew's leg is now encassed in 'tingle'. We have seen Michelle's miracle garden. Today we were informed of what kind of ice cream the President and daughters had.

The right to a free press is still out there awaiting someone to exercise it. Perhaps they can read some blogs to get caught up on what's happening should they choose to jump back in the fray after they tire of the adventures of a President in a foreign land.

Amazing Grace

Possible hanky alert !

Boxer Throws a Hissy

When Boxer asked the general to call her Senator instead of ma'am she claimed she worked hard for that title. It would have been more accurate for her to have said she paid a lot on money for that title.

An appropriate response from the general would have been "Very well Senator and might you please address me as 'Sir' ? I too have worked hard to be properly addressed.

She is arrogant, petty and undeserving of any respect whatsoever. Senators lost their lofty status as lords when they became directly elected by the people. Now they are merely glorified representatives. Servants to the people.

Pimpin ABC News

ABC News trying to convince people of it journalist integrity after it merges with Team Obama to sell his policy is about as convincing as some woman cuddled up to a pimp wanting you to believe she isn't a hooker.

That's My Senator

Interesting post by M. Malkin:

Tom Colburn would be a Senator from my state. We make good choices. Malkin provides a link to his list of your wasted dollars so the boy wonder can be the next FDR, have statues of himself erected and every black scholl named after him right there on MLK Ave. I have appropriately place the link in the proper category below. The top ten is an interesting read. I did not know about Optima lake in Oklahoma. Looks like the ideal fishing lake.

Stimulating ( as in elevated blood pressure ) PORK

Obamamedia

Drudge has a big headline about ABC News.. Live In the White House

ABC is stepping in a big pile of Fascism.... Willingly.

I'm not one that usually jumps on the boycott wagon but maybe it is time I do. There needs to be pushback... consequences for bowing to this idiot President and his inner circle of this regime. Make ABC pay.

Love this:

In the absence of opposition, I am concerned this event will become a glorified infomercial to promote the Democrat agenda. If that is the case, this primetime infomercial should be paid for out of the DNC coffers. President Obama does not hold a monopoly on health care reform ideas or on free airtime. The President has stated time and time again that he wants a bipartisan debate. Therefore, the Republican Party should be included in this primetime event, or the DNC should pay for your airtime.

Respectfully,

Good Legislation Litmus Test

A good test that would cut through all the spin in the selling of health care is to make the stipulation that all government employees and employees of corporations that took TARP money be required to use the government system. President, Senators, Justices, Representatives, Agencies, Post Office all the way down. If 'WE' want justice, fairness and equity, all those emotional appeals being used to make sell, then they should have to live within the system they design.


Frankly I hope someone in Congress slips that in the bill they want to fast-track over our objections.

Obama's Red-Shirts

ObamACORN muscles the New York Senate Republicans

" Not only was this violence uncalled for, the ACORN crowd shouldn't even have been there in the first place: The Senate lobby is a restricted area, and public protests are explicitly prohibited.

Sen. George Winner (R-Elmira) accused Senate Secretary Angelo Aponte -- the Malcolm Smith ally who earlier had locked the entire Senate out of the chambers -- of having "clearly sanctioned" the riot."
They are just doing what their master told them to do.


Just for fun.

I was looking for a pic of Biden for the previous post and googled 'Biden Idiot'. Then I got curious how many responses I would get on an 'Obama Idiot' search.

Check out the number. For it is the number of a man....



Mere coincidence ? Ummmm...mmmaaaayyybe. ?

Era of Epic Fail

Biden Says 'Everyone Guessed Wrong' on Unemployment Numbers.

No Joe, how about 'We' guessed wrong ? Remember... Yes We Can, We are the ones... ?

Almost half of us could see it coming. That's why we didn't vote for your ineptness. Got a feeling next year, right before the midterms I might add' I am guessing we'll be hearing about rising inflation. Did your little circle of 'everyone' happen to make any guesses about that?

Weekend Tune



I have the DVD of this. It is enjoyable to watch. I believe it is called Animusic.

Obamabortion

Newborn Baby Boy Abandoned in Bushes in Illinois

What did this person do that is different than how Obama support the idea that if a new US citizen survives an abortion it can be left to die ?

Neither mother wanted the child, both want to kill a defenseless human by just letting it die. The only difference is one mother pays someone to do it for her while the other mother does it herself.

There can be only one truth. It either is or is not a human. If so then he/she is entitled to human rights like the rest of us having been 'Created Equal'.

A call for compromise on the abortion issue does not recognize truth nor is it interested in contemplating it.

Obama was right, truth is above his pay grade.

Obamacare

He did a town hall thing today. I Could hear his sermon about the quality of care in his plan. Did notice a tepid applause. I got to wondering about something he said. If you already have health care you can keep it or you can sign onto his plan.

So if that's the case and I choose to stay private I will still have to pay for his plan. I will be paying for two plans. One directly out of my pocket and another through tax withholding that I cannot use.

The a plan I would like is to allow me to deduct health care costs directly from the bottom line.

Taxes Owed - HC Costs. I could deal with that.

Liberal Big Wig Meets The Real World

Phil Spector is wigging out. He also reminds me of my observation of a difference between liberal and conservative.

The liberal view sees the world as it ought to be.


The conservative view sees the world the way it is.



They are going to really love ya Phil. Be making all new kinds of sweet music.

Socialism or Fascism ?


From my own experience living in Norway I sort of have a view of what Americans mean when they say we are heading towards socialism and we may indeed head that way. I however seeing it as being more aptly described as a fascist state.

In a socialist state government, under the guise of 'the people', owns and controls the essential industries like energy, public transportation and health care. People vote and have a say in how affairs are handled and quite frankly they can be very democratic. The essential difference I found was the degree of interference in the way people lived. They tell you when and what color to paint our house. We were taxed ever year for the possession in the house; our television, our stove, other devices, our pool table and many even smaller ideas.

We Americans had a game of shuffling the 120V power converter before the tax man came since they were illegal. When we arrived and unpacked the Encyclopedia Britannica many articled were taped over or blackened out and in a few cases entire pages removed. Britain is currently suffering through outrageous problems of this nature.

There was much freedom of conscious, a free press and freedom of assembly. There was even a communist newspaper. So socialism is a political party lording not over your beliefs, just over your property.

Fascism has a few different aspects. One is the degree of liberty the people posses. They can vote as long as it is for the state approved candidate often under social peer pressure. Second, is that a dictatorial type leader that the elites of the power structure erects a person as a facade and focus of power and demand allegiance to; essentially an embodiment of a narcissistic state. The power structure is a coalition of like minded individuals in academia, media and unionized industry wanting to retain power by using the means to justify the ends.

The key element of fascism is the control of information. Schools teach only the virtue of the party and state, the press prints only that which is supportive of the state and industry is privately owned but controlled by the government. A quid pro quo arrangement for power sharing But the government is figuratively bought and paid for by these interests with a natural desire to stick together to advance their own interests at the expense of the people. People are just fodder that feeds their system. Mere horses to pull their wagons.

I just think it is more appropriate to describe what is happening as fascism-lite.

Couple of quick 'for instances' we have seen recently.

* You cannot mention God in a public forum ( there can be only one.. the state )
* One cable pundit gets tingling in his leg over his man-love of Obama.
* Another pundit stated Obama is like God. why would we need the old one
* Many noted pundits dream of sex with him. Not all are of the opposite sex.
* Obama snaps his finger and Congress passes through unprecedented spending.
* People adore his image in their homes, their rear-view mirror or call it art.
* The press is trying to rebuild the JFK myth of Camelot; emphasis on myth.
* The government muscling into private enterprise through loans like the Mafia.
* The government wants to pass laws to 'Hush Rush'.
* The schools can teach Islam, Hinduism, Native American spiritualism, Wiica.
* They cannot even mention Christianity in a historical context.
* The courts have assumed the power to legislate by proxy.
* The executive branch buys control of private businesses without any constitutional authority.
* The party apparatchik use intimidation against their opponents.
* The government uses public funds to finance groups to support their agenda by coercion.
* The Justice Dept drops charges against two NBP members clearly using intimidation.
* The press fails to challenge the actions of government.
* The press actively suppresses anything that casts a negative light on their agenda.

These are things you typically do not find in socialism. But that's just my opinion.

I await the 3:00am knock on the door.

Obamanomics

It's the Employers Stupid

Hey, I am all for the government spending money to maintain our infrastructure. That is the job of government. Keep in mind the interstate system was to move military equipment across the country. I have actually seen documentation that there has to be so many miles of straight highway so aircraft can land. In the end it the initial outlay was recovered in taxation of commerce using the system. It also served a far greater function for growth of the nation. In fact, it changed the nation for the better.

But those jobs Obama proposes are just patchwork and not a solution to the problem. The idea isn't job creation, it is employer creation. With that jobs are just a logical outcome and these types of jobs can last many decades. Liberals, being quite adept at inverted thinking, cannot for some unfathomable reason understand how reducing the tax burden on those that employ promotes employment growth. It is an actual investment because the future return is worth it. It is as simple as the old saying 'a caged bird cannot fly'.

Image Is Everything ?

One of my favorite commercials. But look at it in the aspect of a statement how the left swoons over the perceived brilliance of Obama who, after vehemently ridiculing George Bush, is in fact swooning over Bush/Cheney ideas but in the personage of someone that fits their ready-for-prime-time false image. Symbolism over substance.

Walk It Like You Talk It

Obama has returned from Europe but the family stays behind for bit of shopping.

I have a couple of questions about the article.

1. How much is this costing for travel and security ?
2. From one of the pictures, where is the Michelle's hair?

What kind of burns me about this is how oblivious the Obamas are to their blatant hypocrisy. Now it is understandable that special consideration for the two girl's schooling is a necessity because we do live in a society where all kinds of nut jobs might endanger these two innocent children. Additionally I am glad these two bright girls have such a wonderful opportunity that I have myself had thanks to those evil petroleum companies when Exxon transferred Dad to Norway.

But I am sure these exceptional children are equally deserving of similar educational opportunities:



Obama and his Democrat servants in Congress tell us how important educating American children is and I agree. In fact, it is of the highest priority. If we are going to bailout anything it should be our schools. Now if they could just walk it like they talk it. I doubt though Obama or Michelle would be willing to give up this shopping spree to help those two little kids have the same opportunity their children have.

This is not change. This is not hope.

Government Motors


We the people bought them,
We the people own them,
I want to trade my stock.
For Ford stock.

A Test For Algorites

A quick quiz for the global warming folks.

Read this article and then:

1. Calculate how many tons of CO2 emissions it would take to melt 2 miles of compressed ice in a subzero environment. Please give your answer in tons per year and further express the human population required to do so in the five years Algore has predicted our polar caps will be gone.

2. Explain why past heating epochs, far warmer than the current supposed heating, were unable to prevent the accumulation of ice two miles thick.

3. Explain how the Arctic sea ice, having already displaced an equal volume of water, will cause our sea levels to rise. Hint: Take a glass of water and drop in some ice cubes then mark the level of water. Allow the ice to melt and note the level of water.

The Obama Doctrine

MS Dumbass ver 1.0

Remember how liberals recited the mantra in 2004 that a vote for Bush was a vote against ones own interest and how baffled they were why someone would do so? I have a feeling that a conservative at Microsoft is as rare as integrity in Washington D.C. Apparently Microsoft wasted a lot of campaign contribution money.

Ballmer Says Tax Would Move Microsoft Jobs Offshore

Welcome to the world of grownups MS Dumbasses.

A normal person with common sense does not want to pay anymore than they have to for anything. This goes for taxes too. Apparently the liberal mind just hasn't reached this level of understanding.

So Much For Healing Our Image

I recall it wasn't all that long ago that the Obamamedia and his leftist minions made a great deal of world leaders not shaking hands with George Bush as they gathered for a group photo. As it turned out they didn't shake his hand because they had already done so.

To the left this showed how much hatred for our country Bush had created.

So is that the case here with the Great Healer, The One, He who causes the seas to no longer rise ?
