More Proof

That the "Main-Stream" media isn't worth a puddle of cat piss.

If your blood isn't boiling by the time you're done reading, you don't have much blood at all.

Woe is Germany -- jobless rate at new record. 12.6%




Howard Dean:


"This is a struggle of good and evil. And we're the good."





And, oh Irony: A Springfield woman who began lobbying against gun violence after her son was shot to death in 2002 was arrested last week when police allegedly found an illegal gun and drugs in her home. Of course, the "Million" Moms didn't crusade against gun violence, they crusaded against gun ownership.

More proof

...that the "Arab street" hates Americans.

UN sex abuse

Ya know, I've always said that if you want to introduce crime, corruption, pedophelia, sex trafficing and illegal drugs into a country, all you need to do is bring in the UN.

And DANEgerus has proof.

Everywhere the UN goes, it's filth and sickness follow.

You think your Social Security is yours?

Nuh uh.

"Your estimated benefits are based on current law. Congress has made changes to the law in the past and can do so at any time. The law governing benefit amounts may change because, by 2042, the payroll taxes collected will be enough to pay only about 73% of the scheduled benefits."


Folks, once the government gets that money supposedly earmarked for Social Security, any claim you have on it is over.

Done. Finite. Finished, destroyed, gone.

And remember, the government isn't just getting that 7.5% that you see on your paycheck. Your employer also pays 7.5% of your pay to the government in Social Security payments. Which means that for those folks out there who are self employed? Yep, they get to pay the whole 15%. And not only are you NOT entitled to any benifits beyond what Congress deems fit to give you, the Social Security administration admits that time is running out on the program! THEY PRINT THAT FACT ON THE BACK OF THE STATEMENT!!!!!!

I don't know why more people in the 20-30 year age bracket aren't howling about Social Security right now, because they are getting RIPPED OFF! Hell, I'M getting ripped off! Anyone who pays into this ponzi scheme is getting ripped off, because you have no claim to that money once the government has it in it's grubby, corrupt little fingers! And the return you get on that money is so small it's not even laughable.

Right now you would get a better return by just sticking your money into a savings account and letting it sit for forty years. Abolish Social Security.

It might just be me....

But I didn't watch the Oscars yet again, and I really don't give two hoots about who won or who gave what speech, or who wore what designer dress. I don't care. In fact, I don't care to the extent that I have avoided any and all Oscar news.

Well, maybe "don't care" is too light. I feel that the entire Oscar celibration USED to mean something, but in recent years has decended to nothing but one big massive circle jerk amongst the glitterati, not of which means anything to anyone outside of their small, politically correct circle. We already know that the people who choose Oscars do so without any rules or standards to guide them, and it seems more like some big political convention mixed with massive bouts of masturbation rather than a night to celebrate actual art. And let's be frank, the number of movies that can fall into the catagory of "actual art" are few and far between these days. I'm still waiting for a beheading of whoever thought "White Chicks" would be a great idea.

Anyways, that's my opinion.

This is from outside my friend's house in Maryland.



That's actual color too -- the sun was low and the sky was clear on the horizon but this squal swept in. Eerie, it was.
