And just because



Waaaaay back when Dave was just a wee sprout, he played the violin for a year before turning to the drums in Jr. High.  Had someone showed little Dave this video, he may have ended up with a cello instead.

Nullification

I can haz it?


Idaho, the first state to sue the federal government over the health care overhaul, has announced plans to resort to an obscure 18th century legal remedy that recognizes a state’s right to nullify any federal law that the state has deemed unconstitutional.
The doctrine, known as nullification, has its roots in the brand of governance practiced by the nation’s founding fathers. 

Now even the bill's sponsors admit that this might not work.  But let's keep throwing roadblocks up before this country is well and truly fucked by Obamacare.

And I'm damn proud to be from Idaho, folks.

New Liberal Media Narrative

All the crimes of the PA Abortion doctor who murdered babies and killed women wasn't really about "abortion".

And as multiple people have pointed out, the Democrat American Communist Party propaganda machine is doing it's best to cover this entire story up.   Don't believe me?  Google "Kermit Gosnell" and you get about 245,000 results.  Google "Sarah Palin Shooting Arizona" and you get 18,100,000 hits.  Gosh, who do you think the media wants to talk about?  Who do you think the media wants to attack?

If I had my way, every newspaper in America would be shut down, every "journalist" fired, every editor sent packing.  And then we would start over, and the only stipulation I would make is that anyone who ever worked for a "news" outlet would not be allowed back in.  Maybe then we would have real reporting instead of propaganda and editorials disguised as news reports.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day

From El Rushbo.

 Now, some of you may not know the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a state dinner last night for Hu Jintao of China.  Hu Jintao is holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison in China.  Not making it up.  The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a dinner for the guy holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison, and the media does not get the irony of this at all.  They're too busy running around chasing Sarah Palin and radio talk show hosts over "civility."

And that is why he gets paid like he does, folks.

Weep for our country

There's a tombstone outside my church, right as you go in the side door, for all the victims of abortion in this country.  Killing a baby just because it isn't born yet is still killing a baby, no matter what you try to convince yourself.  Killing the most helpless among us because they're an inconvenience brought about by sex is just plain wrong.

So when I read this I wanted to throw up......  and if you read all of it, keep a vomit bucket handy.  I normally do hyperbole rather well, but that's not hyperbole, that's a simple fact.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors. …
This entire report shows just how far some people in this country have abandoned morals, integrity, ethics, and anything resembling humanity.  The culture of death is alive and well in America.

Victory Part One!

House repeals Obamacare!  And as Instapundit points out, the repeal passed with a larger margin of victory than the original Obamacare vote.

Part two is the Senate.  We'll see what happens there.  But I want any bastard who votes against repeal to be beaten like a baby harp seal with his vote come next election time.

Pipe bomb in Spokane?

The police got to it and defused it before anything happened, but still....  Adrienne's hubby had a too-close encounter with it.

Anyone from that area remember the pipe-bombing the Aryan Nations did in Coeur d'Alene in the mid-eighties?  They were going after Fr. Bill Wassmuth, who was the priest at St. Pius X church in Coeur d'Alene.  My family was going to that church at the time the attack happened.

I wonder if some of the Neo-Nazi holdovers were trying to relive old times?

Start the cutting!

Little article here about what programs can be cut from the Federal Gummint.  I've had a discussion with people much like this, where I started describing what departments could be cut from the government.  He objected, and said we would have riots in the streets.

I ain't certain that's a bad thing.  I might be pilloried for that, but I really don't know if watching the parasitic class go into full melt-down mode is all that horrible.

Oh, and for the record, I want to cut the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Agriculture, Energy, the EPA, and various other independent programs, as well as most "foreign aid" that amounts to nothing more than handing money over to despots who hate us.

Conserving Energy

Dealing with certain people in my life has become......  challenging, shall we say.  There's always someone who wants to piss on your Wheaties, just to enjoy your misery.  I used to enjoy jumping right back in their face, but these days?  I ain't got the energy for it.

I had one of those assholes try to provoke a reaction out of me tonight.  I ended up just leaving.  I don't have the energy to deal with assholes these days, due to the high number of assholes and pricks that I'm contractually obligated to deal with at work.  I fight all day just to keep my sanity.  I can't fight away from work the same day.  Not if I want to remain human.

It doesn't quell the anger, it just pushes it off for another day.

Why Illinois is broke

Well, one part of the reason anyways.

Work for the State 5 Years, Pay in Zero, Get $130,000 Pension...

Work for Yourself 45 Years, Pay In $260,000 Get $28,000 Social Security

Anybody see a problem here?

This is what happens when you live in a state with no accountability, no transparency and massive political malfeasance. You and I are in effect tax slaves whose purpose in life is to work and pay exorbitant taxes so the elitist politically connected public employees can live in luxury when they retire - on our dime of course.
That last paragraph is how the Professional Left sees all taxpayers by the way.

Seen this yet?

Don Surber's response to the Left about their sudden cry for "civil discourse".  I guess after calling us murder-inciting racists, and that after calling us unintelligent racists, and that after calling us baby-killing warmongers, and that after calling us...   well, everything but a white boy, NOW they want to be civil.

My simple response to that is "fuck you", but Don Surber does it so much better.

Plows

After getting off a plane yesterday and shoveling snow off my sidewalk, I just saw the city plows drive by and dump it right back into my driveway and sidewalk entrances.

Thanks, assholes.  Think ya could have plowed a bit yesterday?  I was working, you should have been too!
