I'm glad I don't have cable

Because I probably would have shot my TV by now by watching the news. The very same people who ruined our economy are pushing to sent it straight to hell. Two RINOs might be what the American Communist Party needs to foist this economic disaster on America.

We had a chance to get rid of Specter. We missed that chance, and now it's coming back to bite us in the ass.

I wonder...... when the country breaks down, the next Great Depression hits, and Left finishes turning this country into a socialist hellhole, ya think people might finally start to fight for their freedoms instead of handing them over to statist fuckheads?

You know what depresses me? I only see half of this country fighting for it's freedoms. The other half gave them away, and are happy about it. I should remember this little scale...

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.
Too many people are either complacent or apathetic. And a large number of people in this country are dependent on the FedGov for their daily bread. They don't want anything to change. They'll happily sit in their government given seat on the government funded bus as it drives over the cliff, probably bitching that they "deserve" more of something or other.

*sigh*

Yeah, I'm not really in a good mood. Seeing your country commit suicide does that to a person.

Cooking today

The Ragin' Mrs. and I (well, mostly the Mrs.) are cooking a feast today for about 80 people. She's going to be the kitchen Goddess, and I'll be manning the grill.

(Michael, that's what all the rolls are for)

I've got 12 pork roasts and 12 chickens to grill. The pork is already seasoned with our spice rub, and I've got a mix of applewood and black walunt that I'll be using to smoke it. I figure that a six-hour smoke will make the meat just fall apart.

So once again, I'm going to be busy today.

Someone tell me

If the S-CHIP bill signed by Kommisar Obama uses taxes on tobacco to fund the Democrat American Communist Party's socialist healthcare plans, doesn't that mean that they need MORE smokers to pay for everything?

Of course, if they don't get enough money off of THOSE taxes, then they'll just have to dip into the FedGov honeypot, right? I mean, it's for the CHILDREN!

Gah.

Let me throw this link to the New Hampshire House Concurrent Resolution up again. I printed off three copies and sent them to my legislators at the State level. I strongly urge everyone else to do so.

Baking bread

Don't ask me why, but I've got to bake a gross of sourdough rolls before Saturday.

Yeah. I'm busy.

Could Manas AFB be history?

Could this be what was meant when Biden told us that Obama would be tested by the world?

My Past Follows Me

Even after I left Seattle, the worthless, corrupt idiots and shitheels are still going to end up screwing up this country.

Ron Sims, the man who made damn sure that Governor Select Gregoire got "elected" by counting ineligible ballots, and then blocking the investigation into the recount of those ineligible ballots, who has gotten his ass fined off and still faces lawsuits for his criminal action, is going to be #2 at HUD.

THE MOST! CORRUPT! ADMINISTRATION! EVER!

Yes people...

This dumber than a sack of wet hammers idiot is the speaker of the house:



You want to know HOW I know that the people of San Francisco are so mentally retarded that they should all be institutionalized and subjected to years of electroshock therapy? Because they keep electing that woman, who isn't fit to walk the halls of Congress, much less hold any kind of position there.

Global Poverty Act-brought to you by none other than Obama

I ran across this article on the "Global Poverty Act". It is a beautiful little piece of work that give .7% of our Gross National Product to "starving 3rd world countries via the UN. It is quite an interesting read.

Improving on a quote

BabyTrollBlog has a quote up from Walter Williams:

A visual representation of the stimulus package is: Imagine you see a person at work taking buckets of water from the deep end of a swimming pool and dumping them into the shallow end in an attempt to make it deeper. You would deem him stupid. That scenario is equivalent to what Congress and the new president proposes for the economy.

--Walter E. Williams


If I may..... (ahem).

While this visual representation is mostly accurate, it is missing a rather integral part. You see, the person isn't quite taking water from one end, then trudging to the other end and dumping the bucket. No, that person is taking water from one end, then handing that bucket off to a government official standing at the side of the pool to checks it to ensure that there is the proper amount of water in the bucket. THAT person hands it off to anther government drone who tests it to make sure that there are no EPA violating levels of arsenic or lead in it. THAT drone hands it off to another drone who labels it something like Bucket #1, lot 001, sample A. THAT drone hands it off to a tax collector who ensures that the government gets their progressively deduced portion of water in the bucket. THAT worker hands it off to a properly licensed union worker who has the government qualifications necessary to properly empty a bucket into a body of water, even though anyone can do the job.

All the government drones and workers are surrounded by hordes of screaming idiots telling them to do it THIS way, or THAT way, or saying that they know a better way to measure/test/label/dump the bucket.

And you can bet that each and every worthless bastard standing on the sidelines is dipping THEIR cup into the bucket to make sure that they get their fair share out of someone else's bucket, so when that union certified bucket dumper finally empties the bucket into the water, instead of five gallons of water you have one or two pints actually emptied into the pool.

The government is NOT the solution. The solution is for the government to get their greedy, filthy claws off of our economy and let Americans do what we do best - SUCCEED. Which we probably would be doing right now, if it weren't for the parasites in Congress sucking the life out of this country bit by bit.

Tom Daschle withdraws his name

From consideration for Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Nancy Killefer does the same for consideration for Chief Performance Officer.

I say audit everybody. And I mean EVERYBODY. Every member of Congress for the past twenty years. Every administration official from the same timeframe. Friggin' EVERYONE gets audited. Because I'll bet my entire paycheck that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

The high and mighty elitist bastards think they don't have to follow the laws that they themselves create. It's tar and feathers time, people.

Holy....

Moly.

That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America.
I'm printing this out, sending it to my State representatives, and suggesting that they do something similar.

(D)emocrat Immigration Bill a "Piece Of Sh*t"

How bady are the (D)emocrat's going to F**k this country?
Legal Status after 24 hours even without a complete background check

Tax-payers to pay the bills for all the lawyers including the (D)emocrat constituents representing the illegal aliens

Temporary Visas could be renewed indefinately making them in effect Permanent

Amnesty for illegal alien gang members, welcome MS-13.

Tax-payer money to the corrupt officials of Mexico for healthcare & education for the Mexicans to provide incentives to Mexicans to stay in Mexico.

No back taxes

Tax credits, like the 'low income' Earned Income Credit, would be immediately available to illegal aliens

No English required

Amnesty for 'Absconders', those who are living here in violation of a judicial order to leave

These provisions would allow all immigration courts to simply close as there would be no laws to enforce

Free Tuition for illegal aliens, but not for citizens, of course

Illegal aliens passed to front of line for processing ahead of legal applicants for immigration.

Fast track for SPP, the "North American Union" that everyone says doesn't exist gets billions in US tax-payer dollars

No mention of Border Security at all...

Border Border Fence funding to be cut
A "Piece Of Shit" -- John Boehner(R)

Someone please tell me

Just how much are the Steelers paying the refs these days, anyways? It wasn't as bad as 2005, but the 3rd quarter was as horrible as I've seen in a while. There was one roughing the passer call that should have been intentional grounding, and one un-necessary roughness call that was flat out bullshit, and both calls saved the Steelers.

It must be nice to have the zebras just hand you a game. Especially the Super Bowl.

Photo Time

This time it's not one of mine - it's a photo taken at Camp Dodge, Iowa, with about 18,000 troops.



I'd seen this in a book somewhere, and a buddy of mine just emailed it to me. One of the interesting things about it is that in order to get the right perspective on this photo, they had to use most of the people at the top, from about the torch on down to her shoulder. You can count seventeen across at the very base of the photo, but once you get to the torch it's far more than that.
