My laugh for the day

After sitting out all day hunting Bambi and getting skunked, I needed this laugh:

At the scene Thursday night, Flynn told reporters that officers wouldn't help protesters fulfill their "martyrdom fantasies" and they could stay "and freeze their butts off."
The bridge "cleared itself," as protesters left about 40 minutes after his announcement that there would be no mass arrest, Flynn recalled Friday.

 Flea party temper tantrum getting ignored?  Well.....  yeah, check.  Flea Party walking off with pouty face firmly in place?  CHECK!  Yeah, you go ahead and "occupy" a bridge in Wisconsin in mid-November there, genius.  Tell me how that works out for you, after you get out of the hospital for your frostbite and hypothermia.

On their butts.


Hat tip to the Headmistress.

This isn't a shock -

Nancy Pelosi is corrupt as hell.  Naw, really?  Tell me another one!  I'm stunned!  This is my stunned face!

Going hunting

Although the last two times I went out, I got skunked.  But what the hell, hope springs eternal or something like that.

Maybe this year, I can make Bambi my bitch.

On a Dime

Just random thoughts here - I went to pull out of my parking space at work yesterday, and did what I would normally do in my truck - crank the wheel hard to the right and slowing ease on out.

I damn near backed right into the side of the vehicle next to me.

My truck, while not a full-size, still had a decent turning radius.  I could pull a U-turn in the road if I went all the way to one side and then turned the wheels.  My little runner could pull a U-turn in my friggin' driveway.  The turning radius on that thing is so small that I swear I could do a circle and it would pivot, not turn.

That'll be handy in the summertime!

Winter Wind

Went running this morning - took a route that passes by the local VFW.  They've got the US flag up high, and ten other flags on a lower set of poles; all the Armed services flags, the POW/MIA flag, Wisconsin Flag, etc.

Every last one of their flags was sticking straight out in the wind.

Yep.  It's winter.  And it's getting colder by the day, although we've been blessed with a beautiful Indian Summer here.

Nose to the grindstone

I've been too busy to do much news browsing, but what I've seen just makes me sick.  By the way, when are the riots over Elena Kagan going to break out when she refuses to recuse herself after working in favor of Obamacare?

Just asking.

Three Hundred Bitchslaps

And I do mean Bitchslaps.

The “Occupy” movement, whether displaying itself on Wall Street or in the streets of Oakland (which has, with unspeakable cowardice, embraced it) is anything but an exercise of our blessed First Amendment. “Occupy” is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.

“Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” – HAH! Some “movement”, except if the word “bowel” is attached - is anything more than an ugly fashion statement by a bunch of iPhone, iPad wielding spoiled brats who should stop getting in the way of working people and find jobs for themselves.

That there is a backhand that will loosen teeth.  And I loved the ending:

In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.

Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape.

They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though. Try to soldier on.

Home again

Was out on business.  Home now, and waiting for dinner.  Later, a walk with the puppy and a good cigar.

Tired.  Brain not working.
