The BMI is a load of shit

And the government wants to use it to monitor how much you weigh?  Figures.  This is the kind of crap that needs to be beaten down hard.  I'll be damned if any government agency that allows Bawney Fwank to waddle his ass to committee leadership positions will be investigating how much I or any of my family weighs.

Can someone tell me

Just why the hell anyone listens to Pat Buchanan?  Anyone?

Sleeping in

Damn, I must be sicker than I thought.  I woke up at around 5:30 to take the dog out, crashed on the couch until eight, then wandered back into the bedroom and slept until half past noon.

I guess my body just said "Yer goin' DOWN, buddy boy!"  I can't remember the last time I slept so much.

Procrastination personified

I finally got around to putting up Day by Day on the sidebar, after how many months?

Meh.  I'm doing this for free, ain't I?  You get what you pay for.

Cough cough hack hack

Gah.  Well, all those allergies that I thought I had weren't allergies, it was a virus taking it's time to make me miserable.

So I'm home, drinking hot beverages, and actually taking a day off.  Which almost never happens.  Which is probably why I got sick in the first place.

Dammit.

What the hell is that?

It's like Frank Sinatra had an illegitimate love child with Yuri Brezmenov and taught it to sing in the 1960's.  Seriously.  And it wears so much makeup that I first thought it was a puppet.

Just....  Damn.  Sad part is, I can see that being reproduced in some college as "high art".

However the cat is cute as hell.

Feel that smart diplomacy!

Obama is now officially Russia's little bitch.

Let me restate that for those who don't quite comprehend it - the President of the United States is Russia's little bitch.

Yeah.  Love that smart diplomacy!  How's it workin' for ya, Lefties?

Gah, sick

My lymph nodes are the size of golfballs, and my voice is shot.

No free ice cream for you today.  Sorry.

Allergy Hell

Did you know that the tree pollen count in Wisconsin is higher this year than it's been in twenty years?

Yeah.  I have what feels like the worst head cold in the world.  Sore throat.  Stuffy nose.  Plugged up ears.  Itchy eyes.

But no fever.  No hacking cough.  No snot in any color.  No signs what so ever that this is an infection, either viral or bacterial.  Just the pain of an infection without the actual infection.  So I guess on one hand, great, I'm not sick.  But on the other hand I still FEEL like crap, and now I don't have any excuse to stay home.  Oh, and we're doing fiscal law training this week.  Joy.  I wish I could tell you just how exciting fiscal law is, but the only real thing I can say is that I want to take Congress and drag them over a mile of broken glass, because over half of all the fucked up law out there exists only because Congress says so.

I have DayQuil somewhere.......

Piling on

The whole Arizona Immigration Law debate - Big Journalism has a clip of a radio interview with the Pinal County Sheriff.  Go clicky.

Last month alone, just in one patrol region, we had sixty-four pursuits.  That means people who were driving a vehicle, failed to yield, took off like a bat out of hell, running red lights, creating traffic wrecks, numerous people were killed in these wrecks over the last several months, and who are these people?  Not one of them was a U.S. citizen.

There ain't a single person who would accept that kind of crime without howling about it to the authorities. So why do so many people tell Arizona to just live with it?

Somebody's going to hell

For stealing the Mojave Desert War Memorial Cross.

Of course, that's if they're lucky and they die before anyone military related gets their hands on them.  Because if a veteran manages to land a hold of them, their trip to hell is going to take a detour onto Painful Hell On Earth Boulevard.  And I'll be more than willing to help.

HolyMoly

Bill Whittle goes at it.  And he doesn't pull any punches.

Nancy Pelosi uses her religion

I say "uses" because she sure doesn't adhere to any tenants of faith from the Catholic Church.  KisP has a video where Granny Rictus talks about how the Catholic Church "needs to speak from the pulpit" regarding illegal immigration.

Hey Nancy - what about speaking from the pulpit against abortion?  Because that's also something the Catholic Church takes a strong opinion about, and you're more than happy to ignore that.

God, that woman makes me sick to my stomach.  The sheer amount of stupidity combined with hypocrisy, multiplied by statist power-grabbing rhetoric leaves you with one huge anti-American piece of shit.

The more I read about Elena Kagan

The less I like her.

Hard core leftist?  Well, that goes without saying.  She was nominated by the Marxist Messiah, who's goal is to fundamentally change America from a prosperous, capitalist country to a socialist/communist oligarchy.

She's never actually....  ya know.....  BEEN A JUDGE?  And now we expect her to perform that function in the highest court in the land?

Oh hell no.

She was instrumental in getting ROTC recruiters kicked off the Harvard campus?  It's about that point where I started writing my Congressmen and said "Not just no but HELL NO."

And she's fifty.  She could have decades of destroying this country on the bench.

The Common Thread

Can someone tell me, is there ANYONE Obama has picked to be in his cabinet, or be one of his "czars", or whatever, who hasn't worked for or with Goldman Sachs?  Because for the amount of hate the Marxist Messiah throws at Wall Street, he's sure got a jones for Goldman Sachs people, like his nominee to the Supreme Court.

Dude..... where's my life?

Sure as shit, along with all the suggestions regarding what to do about the border between the USA and Mexico, there's someone talking about legalizing drugs.  This time it's DJ Allyn from the Rott.  Halfway down his post:


Legalize marijuana, and decriminalize cocaine and most other Schedule II narcotics. Okay, I know that this one is probably going to be a bit tough to swallow, but listen it out and think about it before jumping out against it.
Our “War on Drugs” has been a costly and complete failure. It has done nothing to curb our appetite for drugs. Because of this, we’ve created Capone-like groups that prey on American society — a lot of them being illegal aliens and drug cartels that only exist because illegal drugs means big money to those that provide them.

Now, I used to jump up and down about the failure of the War on (some) Drugs, about how it wasn't worth it, etc., etc., etc.  But I wonder just how many of the people who are advocating for the legalization of drugs have spent much time around the end result of the drug culture.  Anybody willing to admit that?  Because let me tell you what I've been around, both from my employment and from my personal life - the people who use illegal drugs on a regular basis are NOT the kinds of folks who you want to have living next to you, or working with you.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you were to legalize every drug tomorrow you would have a crime wave.  Because people who are addicted to drugs by and large do not hold down jobs adequate enough to pay for their drug habits.

Now, me being who I am, I don't like to dwell in theory all that much.  Oh sure, theories might be fine to sit around and discuss and debate, but if you're going to talk about real-world actions, I want real world data.  Like, say, Mexico, as discussed in a rebuttal post at the Rott by Subotal Bahadur:


It is not widely known [and I suspect because it would upset a lot of political applecarts] but MEXICO legalized personal possession and use of ‘harmless drugs’ as marijuana, LSD, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and crystal meth almost a year ago.
In the last few years, 23,000 people have died in drug related killings in Mexico.

The only place I know of where legalization of (some) drugs has worked is Amsterdam, under tightly controlled conditions.  Conditions that I know wouldn't be accepted by the people currently screaming for the legalization of drugs in America.

Let me ask you this - let's say I open a business.  America legalizes drugs.  Am I allowed to discriminate against a pothead?  Or would I face a lawsuit for violating someone's "civil rights"?  Because after my past dealings with potheads, I wouldn't want one working for me, period.  I wouldn't trust one with a bankroll.  I wouldn't trust one with the keys to my business.  But if we legalize drugs in America, I'll bet my business (and I bet that I would!) that I won't be allowed to show a pothead the door.

Now look at Mexico, where they've legalized quite a bit, and far from drugs being a tax-revenue bonanza, the drug cartels have taken over.  Would anyone like to show me some hard evidence that this wouldn't happen in America if we legalize drugs here?  Hell, is there any evidence that would show ANY kind of different reaction?

Anyone?

That's funny

I got a hit from the New York Slimes.  One.  Hit.  The visit length was a whole whopping 0 seconds.

I still don't see where they linked to me.  But I think that's funny as hell.  Because I get more hits from Kim du Toit's old blogroll, and he's been retired from blogging for damn near two years now.

And for any New York Times editors and writers - I hope your worthless bird-cage liner sinks like a lead balloon, and you all get laid off.

Now kiss my ass.

I know, I know, not very Christian of me to say on a Sunday.  I'll try to do better.
