Proof Positive

George W. Bush hopes history will see him as a president who liberated millions of Iraqis and Afghans, who worked towards peace and who never sold his soul for political ends. Said Bush:
I'd like to be a president (known) as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace.
If you ever needed proof that Bush was - and is - out of touch with reality, this is it.

Obama's Latest Selection

Obama has asked Gates to stay on, another man with a vested interest to keep the wars going on and on.

With the collection of Washington insiders and lobbyists he's been selecting to fill his administration with, it's beginning to look like to only changes we will see is the name of the President and a change of the first lady from a smiling trophy bimbo to an angry militant.

Some change. Like all other candidates before him , he promised all things to all people, but now that he's elected, he is "modifying" his promises to align them with the current policies he campaigned against.

Some folks would call that out-an-out lying, but they're old-fashioned.

Really, he represents no change whatever - other than race - just more and more of the same, which is a steady course to socialism.

After that, it's a bit foggy... Marxism, or Fascism?

It's NOT Our Money

A Republican congressman seeking a $25 billion bailout of the troubled U.S. auto industry made a stunning statement about taxpayer funds to benefit Detroit, claiming, "It is not your money."

Rep. Joe Knollenberg, R-Mich., made the remark during a discussion with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto yesterday as the pair debated sending billions of federal dollars to prop up the Big Three carmakers.

Cavuto asked Knollenberg:
When the housing industry CEOs come to you and say, 'You know, [if] we go under and all the ancillary businesses – the dishwasher manufacturers, the washer-and-dryer manufacturers, the Lowe's and the Home Depots that vastly depend on our being alive and vibrant – if we go under, there's hell to pay. And then the textile manufacturer comes to you and says, 'If we go down, there's hell to pay.' And on and on and on we go. Where do you draw the line with our money?
It is not your money," said Knollenberg.

Cavuto screamed back, "It is! It is taxpayers money!"

Ok, enough.

When a pompous jackass like this one develops the attitude that it's not our money they're throwing around like confetti, it's time to toss the idiot out. Cancel his political career. Send him home to sell newspapers, no retirement, no golden parachute, nothing.

It is jackasses like Rep. Joe Knollenberg, R-Mich., that have put us into a debt spiral that will take decades to handle.

Toss the bum out.

And all the rest just like him.

A Trillion More

Ok, no problem:
(Reuters) - The U.S. financial system still needs at least $1 trillion to $1.2 trillion of tangible common equity to restore confidence and improve liquidity in the credit markets, Friedman Billings Ramsey analyst Paul Miller said.
Hell yes, just keep shoveling it out to them... we have an endless supply of paper money.

No help to the everage man on the street, we're on our own. But those guys in the thousand-dollar plus suits that infest Wall street? They desperately need the money. The cleaning bills for those suits must be awesome.

Besides, what's another trillion or so?

Just wait until they start demanding a quadrillion or so. Now that's serious money. That's when we will need to start taking notice.

The End For The Flush Toilet

This will go over good:
AS the world celebrates World Toilet Day today, sanitation experts have called for the end of the flushing dunny to save water and provide fertilizer for crops.
Sanitation experts? More like loons.

A toilet that does not flush. Now where do you suppose all that presently flushed material will go? Right into a container under the seat - smell and all - until you take it out and dump it. That's progress from the experts.

Save all those trips with containers full of poo... install a time-tested spiffy out in your backyard. That will show your neighbors how forward-thinking you are, and should increase your property value.

Short on cash? Below is the "economy" version:

No lingering aroma with this model, but a backyard fence is recommended with this one. Also a lid... to keep the neighbors dog out.

Another First For Women

Oh darn, I lost my bag:
HOUSTON (AP) - Flight controllers were revamping plans Wednesday for the remaining spacewalks planned during space shuttle Endeavour's visit to the international space station, after a crucial tool bag floated out to space during a repair trip.
Gotta love it... Another one of those women with two last names, trophy astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, managed to lose her tool bag on a spacewalk.

Calling the incident a "little hiccup", she bragged about how she still managed to spend seven hours on her spacewalk.

Bottom line? She didn't tether the tool bag properly, or forget to.

With half the tools for this mission lost - and regardless what NASA will claim while trying to cover this major screw-up - it will be impossible to complete the needed repair and maintenance work scheduled for this space shuttle mission, one of our last.

So, thanks to Mis Stefie-pip, needed maintenance will not be done, and we now have the largest piece of space junk ever lost orbiting around somewhere near the international space station, a real hazard to future missions. It will have to be constantly tracked and monitored so future flights to the space station won't run into it and cause a real disaster. You all recall just how fragile those leading edges are on the wings of the space shuttle.

You go girl!

Senility Rules!

Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), 84 years old, is becoming the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee chairmanship — one of the most powerful positions in the upper chamber.

He is replacing Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), 91 years old, who earlier this month stepped down as chairman because of his failing health.

Failing health? No kidding. If you have had the opportunity to watch this way over-the-hill candidate for a retirement home on C-Span, you would have noted his slow and slurred speech, his stuttering and stumbling vocalizing, his trembling hands, his bent and worn-out frame.

Another classic example is Ted Kennedy. Old and worn out, he now has an incurable - and fatal - brain cancer eating away and destroying his mental facilities. But regardless of this calamity, he wants stay in the Senate so he can - he says - vote on important national issues. With his deteriorating brain, no less.

Or how about Ruth Bader Ginzberg(born March 1933) on the Supreme Court? She makes your average Halloween witch look positively juvenile by comparison.

True, with experience, knowledge and age comes wisdom, but with too much age, it all goes out the window.

We need an upper age limit on people like this who simply refuse to step down, doddering old fools that just can't let go the reins of power. In a case like Kennedy's, we need medical restrictions that clearly describe what conditions would disqualify any office holder.

And now we have another 84-year-old coot clutching the reins of great power with his trembling hands.

We should deserve better.

Air Power

Once again, Fred manages to just about say it all.

The above photo shows our newest endangered species, and no wonder. His supersonic playtoy costs around fifty million dollars a copy, and these guys crash them like they were hobby shop plastic models.

That would be fifty million dollars of taxpayer money. His replacement?

Yup... Some white haired old coot sitting at a console that controls a predator drone.

Heck, I bet I could even do that... Even be more fun than WoW.

Another Sign Of The Times

Spam... the other edible meat:
AUSTIN, Minn. — The economy is in tatters and, for millions of people, the future is uncertain. But for some employees at the Hormel Foods Corporation plant here, times have never been better. They are working at a furious pace and piling up all the overtime they want.
What's after Spam? Dog food? Then dumpster diving?

Here's a page that details how to get to most out of your can of Spam.

I wonder what it's going to take to wake up Americans to the fact that we are in serious trouble, that there is no short-term solution, and that the silver-tongued Obama cannot do anything to change the coming course of events.

Seriously rainy days are ahead, but I suppose most Americans - being used to forever sunny skies - will continue doing nothing until the roof caves in before they finally realize that the rafters are rotten.

First Four-Star Woman General

Ann E. Dunwoody, after 33 years in the Army, ascended Friday to a peak never before reached by a woman in the U.S. military: four-star general.

Let me be one of the first to congratulate Ann on a truly outstanding military career. But I am curious about one thing... What do all those medals she sports indicate?

In my day, you got a medal for bravery in battle, for performance beyond the call of duty in battle, for being wounded in battle. With very few exceptions, medals were awarded for performance far above expectations on the field of battle.

No doubt this general has never seen a single battelfield, much less fight on one, or get shot on one, or do some heroic thing on one. So just what are all those medals for? And do medals really mean very much anymore? Other than the Medal of Honor, or the Purple Heart?

What sort of military do we now have when someone - man or woman - who spends 33 years behind a desk pushing paper gets to be a four-star general?

I suppose it's like the beret thing... it used to mean the wearer was special. Not anymore, it's just a hat.

That would include me, of course, I have an over sized waist I would love to get rid of.

But why are sooo many Americans nowadays struggling with too much fat?

Turns out is just might be corn fructose.
Fructose is a monosaccharide (simple sugar), which the body can use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar [to] rise tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it was once thought that fructose was a good substitute for sucrose (table sugar). However, the American Diabetes Association and nutritional experts have changed their minds about this.

High blood triglycerides are a risk factor for heart disease.
Fructose ends up circumventing the normal appetite signaling system, so appetite-regulating hormones aren't triggered--and you're left feeling unsatisfied. This is probably at least part of the reason why excess fructose consumption is associated with weight gain.
What are the major sources of fructose?
Fruits and vegetables have relatively small, "normal" amounts of fructose that most bodies can handle quite well. The problem comes with added sugars in the modern diet, the volume of which has grown rapidly in recent decades. The blame has often been pinned to high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

High fructose corn syrup has become incredibly inexpensive and abundant, partially due to corn subsidies in the United States. So, really, the problem is more that it has become so cheap that it has crept its way into a great number of the foods we eat every day.
The whole key to this thing is the bit about fructose ending up circumventing the normal appetite signaling system, so appetite-regulating hormones aren't triggered--and you're left feeling unsatisfied... so you keep eating: More than you needed, more than necessary.

My wife and I have been experimenting with this fructose thing. We have been checking labels on foodstuffs to see which contain this additive. A whole lot of our food does. Just about every soft drink does... gobs of it as a less expensive sweetener.

One amazing result: When we prepare and eat a meal with little or no fructose, we eat less and stay satisfied (That not hungry feeling) much longer.

Want to lose weight?

Take a few seconds and read the labels. Avoid products where fructose, corn fructose, high fructose - however it's identified - are way up near the top of the ingredients list.
The higher up the list it is, the more in quantity it represents.
Quit sucking up those fast food soft drinks. They are perhaps the biggest culprits, including their canned and bottled versions in the store.

An unintended consequence of using vast amounts of corn for ethanol and the resulting steep rise in the cost of corn may be the return to more traditional sugar by food and drink manufacturers, bringing about a national weight-loss program not intended by anybody.

Maybe all those 24-inch waists are recoverable after all.

The Totally Insane

A group known as the Shabaab, operating in Somalia, imposed a death sentence on a 13-year-old rape victim.

A 13-year-old girl, described as "little more than a pretty child," was sentenced to be stoned to death by the all-male court.

The girl, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow. had complained to the local Shariah court that she had been gang-raped by, among others, her cousins.

So this court - packed full of world-class religious nut jobs - found her guilty of adultery and sentenced her to death by stoning.

She was taken from the courthouse to a local stadium, where she was buried up to her neck in sand and then stoned to death in front of a 1,000-plus strong crowd.

Groups like this batch of lunatics have sprung up and taken power everywhere during the last eight years, in part encouraged by Osama Bin Laden's seemingly miraculous ability to escape the Great Satan's(America) grasp.

As just how has Bin Laden been able to elude us for eight years? He's been hiding out in an area well known to our intel and military, protected and defended by perhaps few hundred rag-rag devotees, hanging out in caves and mud shacks. Osama has no money, no supplies, no backing, other than the few local chieftians who admire his hatred of all things American. By himself, he is not a threat of any kind, just an old man hiding out from justice.

But so long as he remains free to promote his ambitions to groups like this child-stoning one in Somolia, he is a real and deadly threat. He should have been removed years ago.

However, the Bush administration has consistently claimed their inability to nab this guy is because of our relationship with the government of Pakistan, a supposed "ally". Don't want to cause an international incident, don't want to be seen as aggressors, don't want to rock the political boat, don't want to upset the Pakistani power structure.

Personally, I find that hard to swallow.

Nabbing Osama would have effectively ended the terrorist threat around the globe. It would have removed the snakes head. But Osama has been left completely alone and unharmed. No predator strikes on him and his henchmen. No Delta force strike team slipping in under cover of night to send him to his seventy virgins. Strikes on Wedding parties yes, Osama no.

If Osama had not been allowed to escape the caves of Tora Bora, this would have been all over years ago. These "Sharia Law" bands of insane lunatics would never have got a leg up.

To put it bluntly, we have lost thousands of American military in this insane Iraqi war because there has never been an order to just take Osama out.

After Obama takes office, every key person in this present administration and the Pentagon - from top to bottom - involved in promoting this unjust war in Iraq - using terrorism as an excuse - should be taken before a court of law and tried for a host of crimes, starting with lying and ending up with murder and treason.

I have concluded a lot of this based on what I have read and heard. So, right or wrong, a nationally publicized trail would get to the truth of it all.

I again remind you that there were no WMD's found in Iraq, that Bush - in his desire to correct his father's mistakes - and exposed to the extreme pressure of influential Israeli supporters to remove Iraq as a serious threat to the continued existence of their nation/state in Palestine - ignored intel that pointed to the reality that those weapons no longer existed, and that Saddam had been telling the truth about having destroyed them all as ordered. Why? Because he did not want the armies of the world storming in and destroying what was left of his empire.

True, the United States had been keeping this "war" on the back burner with our "no fly zone" policy to continually bomb Iraqi for ten years after the Gulf war concluded. To this day, many Americans do not realize that we bombed and strafed Iraq positions for an entire decade after the conflict supposedly ended, allowing Bush to claim he was just expanding the already present military operations in the area, and then ordering the invasion and occupation of a nation no longer at war with us, a nation that had been complying with the U.N. ordered disarmament.

What will Obama do about this travesty?

An Omen Of Things To Come?

A young blogger and a writer who disguised an attack on the country’s dictator in the form of a love poem have received heavy jail sentences, in the latest blow to opponents of Burma’s military dictatorship.

How come is it I have the feeling that our free speech blogging will in America soon be drawing to a close?

The Final Free Election?

Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship.

A Marxist/Fascist dictatorship. That's incredibly heavy duty stuff about a new president.

It is astounding that a sitting congressman would make these statements:

It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force. I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism.
That could be a "problem" alright. Brown continued:
That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did. When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist.
Maybe this Congressman knows a few things we peons don't, him being a Washington insider and all that.

What with all the Marxist and Socialist educators we have had for the last two generations in our schools and colleges, it was inevitable the nation would slip away from a Constitutional Republic to some form of recognizable Marxist/Socialist/Communist style dictatorship, and Obama may be the man trained and primed for the job.

The great irony is that we have tens of thousands of troops fighting in foreign nations to bring Democracy to the world, and when they finally do return home, it will be to a Marxist/Socialist nation, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama and his army of dedicated Obots.

One thing we can all bet on... President Obama is going to take your guns. It will be interesting to see how many - if any - Americans will decide to use their guns... rather than give them up to the government.

Stay tuned.

Arrogance beyond the pale:
The Federal Reserve is refusing to identify the recipients of almost $2 trillion of emergency loans from American taxpayers or the troubled assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.
Refusing to tell America what they are doing with two trillion dollars of our money.

I'm beginning to think it's time to take the likes of Bernanke and Paulson out to the woodshed... or worse... much worse.

Your 401K Well Be Just Fine...

Want to keep growing your 401K? Then read this:
RALEIGH — Democrats in the U.S. House have been conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers’ personal retirement accounts — including 401(k)s and IRAs — and convert them to accounts managed by the Social Security Administration.
Hey, there's some good news for your future retirement plans... you should sleep much better knowing the Social Security Administration will be in charge of your money.

As we all have learned, bureaucrats are much better at handling our financial resources than we are.

Peace In Our Time? Hardly

Ahmed Qurei, the Palestinian Authority official leading all peace talks with the Jewish state just stated:
The Jewish Temples never existed and Israel has been working to "invent" a Jewish historical connection to Jerusalem.
According to the Jewish version of history, the First Jewish Temple was built on the so-called temple mount by King Solomon in the 10th century B.C., and was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. The Second Temple was supposedly built in 515 B.C. and was destroyed by the Roman Empire in A.D. 70.

So both Jewish temples - if they existed - have been lost to history, though they are claimed today to have been the center of religious Jewish worship. These temples are said to have housed what was called the "Holy of Holies", or the Ark of the Covenant, also lost.

According to the Muslim version of history, the world was created from the foundation stone of the Temple Mount. The site is believed by the Muslims to be the biblical Mount Moriah, the location where Abraham was supposedly ordered by God to sacrifice his son Isaac.

Jewish tradition holds Mashiach, or the Jewish Messiah, will return and rebuild the third and final Temple on the Mount in Jerusalem.

The Kotel, or Western Wall, is supposed to be the only remaining part the Second Temple, but there is really no evidence for that. What is today called the Western Wall is actually a part of the foundation of the platform structure itself.

Since the recent discovery of incredibly massive stones in the foundation of the structure that are almost identical in size and weight to the trilithon stones in Balbek, stones so huge as to be far beyond the ability of either the Jews of Arabs of the day to carve, move or place, it appears now that both sides are now arguing over a structure that neither side created nor owned, but just occupied from time to time, perhaps building a few comparably trivial structures on the platform more realistically scaled to their abilities of the day, structures that - unlike the platform - have not survived the rigors of time.

Regardless, it does seem there will be no resolution over this massive platform built long before either the Jews or the Arabs appeared on the scene, just more animosity and eventually more war.

Over Reacting?

Just look at this photograph:

This is just one of the vehicles in a caravan taking Obama to his gym.

The guy has an automatic rifle with laser pointer and sniper scope, aiming out the back window of his SUV, down an American street in the direction of the automobiles following behind. He may be impressing a few easy-to-scare bystanders, but a serious assassin would only be amused at this grandstanding.

It's more than a bit scary, this overreaction to a possible assassination attempt. Any real attempt would simply bypass these already compromised and highly visible "guards" and take out Obama just like Kennedy was taken out, who was also surrounded by the same sort of heavily-armed, steely eyed, serious-looking young dudes who believed they were actually protecting the president. We all know how that worked out.

Same with Reagan, except Reagan was lucky. His shooter was armed with a puny little .22 pistol, not a 50 caliber sniper scoped rifle with a 3 mile plus range. Keep in mind, that it was James Brady - not any of those highly trained and heavily armed bodyguards - that saved Reagan, by shielding him with his own body. Brady paid a very heavy price for doing someone else's job.

These guys are just like the police... They can only respond after something has happened, so what's with the automatic weapon aimed out the window?

Big question... why do they feel it necessary to act this way? Is Obama really is serious danger?

They must think so. And if they really do think that, they should have Obama in a Bradley armored personnel carrier, not just another lightly armored but cool black SUV. After all, just one RPG into that really cool black paint job and it's all over.

These guys - and their predecessors - never saved a single president. So why do we see them driving around with automatic weapons shoved out the windows?

They must think that are "preventing" any attempt. Sounds good, a nice TV sound bite sort of thing. But try to prove you prevented something that didn't happen.

When push comes to shove, these guys have failed 100% of the time when a president really needed them. Not a good track record at all.

So let's keep the damned assault rifles down on the floor until you actually need to use them.

New Sport... Wheel Watching

It's going to be interesting to watch the wheels come off the Obama band wagon over the next few months.

Already I see and read stuff that shows president-elect Obama will not get even a one-day honeymoon after assuming the presidency.

I'll bet a lot of you have already figured out that the Repubs did not want any kind of control in Washington for the next few years... as all the horribly bad decisions made by those beltline insiders come home to roost... with a vengeance. That's why they gave McCain - a worn out over-the-hill has-been his shot - it couldn't hurt anything, he was certain to lose.

Even so, Obama is so bad McCain almost pulled it out. That scared the hell out of those behind-the-scenes Republican string-pullers.

It's the democrats who will be in charge as this house of cards collapses, and it will be the democrats who get the blame, ensuring republican control of the federal government for the next quarter-century.

Doesn't matter how many wheels that bandwagon has... They're all going to end up flat in the dust.


Before you start hollering at me, remember that disastrous events are now unfolding that no man - Obama or McCain - could or would be able to control. It just turns out that Obama will be in the drivers seat - along with all those currently gleeful democrats - when we go over the edge... Too bad.

The thing that will make it worse for us all is that Obama - being the first black president - will really try to make things better in a situation that cannot be made better, so he will make terribly wrong decisions with historically bad consequences - even worse than Bush - especially bad for the next black who wants to try for the brass ring.

He would have been smart to wait four more years, but impatience and over-confidence has torpedoed many a career.

The Fuzzy Trail... And Upcoming Conspiracy Theories

Now that Obama is the president-elect, we can start looking into just how he got to where he is. His path to the presidency is as incredible as it is unlikely.

Forget Race. Just try to imagine Obama as an average kid starting out in life... no money, no connections, no fat cat sponsor... just an ordinary Joe with a silvery tongue as his only apparent asset.

Obama, who at the time was a complete and total nobody without connections, a man with no family background like a Rockefeller or a Kennedy, no political tailcoat or history of politics like Bush or Gore, is accepted into Columbia, an Ivy League University, a place well known for it's exclusive pickiness.

After graduating without any outstanding or notable accomplishment from Columbia, he worked at the Business International Corporation and the New York Public Interest Research Group, neither job being particularly well paying or prestigious. He then moved to Chicago to "organize" the community, but by his own admission... Failed.

Then he suddenly gets accepted into the Harvard School of Law, an even pickier and more exclusive place than Columbia. No one can explain just how a still relative nobody got accepted into what is arguably the best - and most exclusive - law school in the country.

Both Columbia and Harvard are very expensive places. Who picked up Obama's tab for the tuition's?

At Harvard, he becomes president of the Harvard Law Review, for which he writes no articles at all. He is offered a book deal for his memoirs before he even passed the bar, a book deal with a very large cash advance.

The list doesn't end there. He also got a sinecure as a lecturer at University of Chicago Law School. That’s astounding for a still wet-behind-the-ears attorney who wasn’t even practicing law yet.

Obama did not start practicing law until 1993, yet in 1994 he was on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago and The Joyce Foundation. What in the world qualified him for either post? Then, In 1995, he was appointed as the as founding president and chairman of the board of directors of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Amazing. Appointments like that just don’t go to a lawyer who hasn’t even made junior partner yet.

Just by looking at his record it's pretty obvious that the man has had some very powerful, well-funded and incredibly influential individuals backing and directing his rise to power. Who might they be? And what has Obama promised them in return?

In my view, it takes more than just political pressure to do the things that has been done for Obama. Those in high enough positions to grant all these highly unlikely favors to a then unaccomplished nobody like Obama generally have a few skeletons in their closets most probably known to our intelligence community, skeletons they would prefer to remain undiscovered by anybody else. That by itself would open many doors normally considered impossible to breach.

A clue or two may be found in Obama's own words. A very disturbing clue is his statement about the United States needing a national civilian security force to operate within our borders... As powerful as the military... As well-funded as the military, and as well equipped as the military. To do what? That's pretty scary stuff.

Could that be a vastly expanded FBI or CIA? Both organizations have the money and the influence to accomplish was has been done for Obama, particularly the "skeletons in the closet" angle.

One thing for certain... Obama's rise to power is as unlikely as a train wreck at an airport.

Obama certainly did not get where he is today on his own merits, which by any yardstick, are nominal at best.

So who is behind this man's incredible - and unbelievable - rise to power?

Clue two: Just suppose Biden, a career insider and dedicated Zionist - who has tried and failed to become president - is actually the chosen one? Imagine that Obama is actually a disposable puppet who was ordered by his hidden benefactors to select Biden as his VP?

Ah yes... fun times ahead. The conspiracy theories will blossom everywhere, primarily because Obama was - and is - so unbelievably unqualified to be where he is today.

The silvery-tonged Obama will not be able to talk us out of all our upcoming disasters, and America will soon discover that little fact. The Media will "discover" that he lied and misrepresented many things. They will turn like a rabid pack of dogs on him. Impeachment and removal will be demanded.

Go Biden.

Obama May Have Blown It

Looking at the very latest numbers tonight, just a few hours before the polls open, it looks like McCain may pull this one out, with a lot of help from Obama and his habit of saying whatever the group he is talking to wants to hear.

Obama's comment to a gaggle of California greens about taxing coal-fired power plants into bankruptcy may just be the feather that broke the camels back.

Maybe, maybe not.

Regardless of the outcome, tomorrow evenings TV watch will be most interesting. I think I'll even go get a sixpac of suds and a sack of chips to keep the evening properly fueled and lubricated.

Get Ready for A Lot Of This

Pelosi, Reid, the new president, Congress members, the Wall Street gang of thieves... all will be smiling BIG smiles after the election. They will ALL stay in power, make more and more money, and continue their present course of ignoring America and It's citizens completely.

Power and money... power and money. And we will pay for it all.

Look forward to it.

Election Eve

Tomorrow is election day, which has become as scary as Halloween would like to be.

We have Obama the socialist, who wants a civilian army as well funded and equipped as the United States military, wants to tax our coal-fired energy plants out of existence, will re-instate the "Fairness Doctrine", and will create an affirmative action atmosphere that is beyond your worst nightmare.

And we have McCain, the Zionist controlled over-the-hill war horse, who will allow Israel to continue running the United States government, will keep the drums of war beating for... forever... a man who wants to open our borders to any uneducated, diseased and untrained loser who wants in... Along with his dirt poor and non english-speaking extended family... And will also sign the "Fairness Doctrine" into law.

We've already voted. My wife and I were sent mail-in ballots, so we sat down in front of the computer, went to the website of every name on the ballot to see who and what they were, and ended up voting against almost every incumbent listed.

You know by now that we did not vote for either of the two totally unqualified second-stringers wanting to be president. The "lesser of two evils" idea just did not wash this election.

I will watch the returns tomorrow night, because I really am interested to see how long it will take for the Blogosphere to be shut down, slower with McCain, really, really fast with Obama.

I have no desire to have a screaming gang of Obama's civilian police force knocking on my door some dark and dreary day, particularly since I do not speak Eubonics, nor do I want to experience the thrill of having one of McCains chosen to send me an official notice that I have violated some new federal fairness doctrine law and will be subject to heavy fines and/or imprisonment, and that the state is about to confiscate all my computers and files to be held as evidence.

Guess I'll find a new hobby.

Goodbye Coal? So Says Obama

Barak Obama statement on a audio interview:
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It's just that it will bankrupt them.
Those of you out there that get their electricity from a a coal-fired plant had better pay attention... Obama intends - by his own admission - to destroy any coal-fired electrical plant by bankrupting it through the excessive use of the "carbon tax". The man is crazy.

Half the United States gets it's electricity from coal-fired plants. If you are part of that half, you'd better go buy your kerosene lanterns and Coleman camp stoves before there's a run on them.

If you think I'm full fo it, go listen to the tape.

A Civilian National Security Force

What is Obama alluding to when he says we need a civilian national security force just as powerful and well-funded as the military?

Surely not the police, or the National Guard.

Perhaps a powerful and well-funded private police force which gets their orders from the president? Like a President Obama?

Hitler called his version the SS.
