An Eye For An Eye....

From the Dallas Morning News"

The family of Jabraylon Bables should be out buying Christmas toys for the bright, talkative boy everyone called "Bam Bam."

On Saturday, the 16-month-old toddler died from the massive injuries and the onset of infections he had suffered 36 days earlier after authorities say his mother's boyfriend dropped him into a pot of boiling water.

"From the injuries on the baby, I think he did it intentionally," one of the boy's aunts, Veronica Bables, said Monday. "I feel like he tortured him."

Carlnelus Delaney Simmons, a convicted murderer, remains in the Dallas County Jail accused of first-degree felony injury to a child. Simmons, 37, is also being held on two felony drug delivery charges. His bail totals $80,000.

What the hell was wrong with the mother? Having a drug-dealing convicted murderer as her boyfriend?

Authorities say the burns that covered Jabraylon's legs, feet, hand and buttocks did not match Simmons' account. He told police that he accidentally dropped hot water on the toddler.

I cannot begin to imagine the pain this infant felt while his extremities were being shoved into a pot of boiling water. Want an inkling? Go shove one finger - just for an instant- into a pot of boiling water. You will never forget the pain.

We are playing with real fire when we - as a society - allow two-legged animals like Carlnelus Delaney Simmons to live and walk amongst us. What he did to this baby is more than sufficient proof that he has forfeited his right to remain alive in this world.

This boiled-alive baby may have been the child of a failed family, a failed mother, even a failed race, but he certainly deserved his one chance in this world. This drug-dealing convicted murderer never allowed him that.

This man should be quickly tried and just as quickly executed. There is no reason on this earth to allow him to live, not even in prison.

How Far We Have Fallen

Look at the picture below. Study it in detail.



Now, try to imagine you being one of those two guardians of the gate during the process pictured.

What would be going through your mind?

That you were actually protecting Americans from bomb-toting terrorists by shaking down this white-haired disabled wheel chaired septuagenarian? Or older?

Would you be thinking that you were violating the rights of a citizen only because you were ordered to? Under threat of dismissal?

Would you be thinking that this job is just not worth it?

Or, as it seems to be in many cases, you wouldn't give a damn that you were being one of America's greatest creeps?

Never in the history of the world has a bomb-toting terrorist come even close to resembling this poor victim of gate rape.

How many of the TSA people are about to throw in the towel and walk away? Or are they going to keep on keeping on because they value their jobs more than their freedom?

As for me, I'd just walk off the job and sabotage some equipment as I left. No job is worth being reduced to what these TSA people have been reduced to.

Again I ask, how many terrorists has the entire TSA organization caught since they started all this?

Answer Violence With Violence?

Lordy lordy....

Royal protection officers seconds from drawing their guns on mob' after Camilla was HIT in ribs by thug through car's open window.

These rioters enjoy the protection of the law while they break it. That makes no sense to me.

Maybe we should remove that protection when a person - or a group of persons - willingly step outside the law to create this kind of mayhem. Particularly when they believe the worst that can happen to them is a few hours in jail, something they brag about to each other later.

They throw Molotov cocktails at the cops, a potentially deadly attack. They turn over and burn cars. They smash windows. They steal and plunder from the stores they destroy. All with the attitude that they are untouchable.

Perhaps its time to show them they are not immune from the consequences of their unlawfulness.

Gathering in a public protest is one thing. Doing what these out-of-control animals do is an entirely different matter. A bit of instant justice visited on their heads may just the thing to settle them down.

Of course,they would scream about police brutality and their civil rights. Too damn bad. If they want to spread hatred, fear and violence, lets give them an equal dose in return.

Ahhh, The Holidays

Tulsa Oklahoma is having another Christmas parade, the same Christmas parade they've had for the last seventy (70) years.

But this year, some zit in City government decided to rename the Christmas parade to the "holiday" parade.

Seems that logic - or anything approaching logic - is not something to be found in the Tulsa city government.

Christmas is a holiday. Easter is a holiday. St. Patricks Day is a holiday. Thanksgiving is a holiday.

So a holiday parade should have entries celebrating all the holidays. There should be a float with an Easter bunny. A float with a drunk Irishman clutching a pot of gold. A float with a turkey getting a pardon from Obama.

You get the point.

The good people of Tulsa want their Christmas parade.. It is, after all, a parade celebrating Christmas, not one or more of the other many holidays. but some deskbound zit - who has issues with the idea - wants to change the name. Change the zit.

Only In Washington

See no evil:


WASHINGTON — the Obama administration and the Department of Defense have ordered the hundreds of thousands of federal employees and contractors not to view the secret cables and other classified documents published by Wikileaks and news organizations around the world unless the workers have the required security clearance or authorization.

Somewhere, deep in the bowels of Washington, someone has a real sense of humor.

It gets better:


Classified information, whether or not already posted on public websites or disclosed to the media, remains classified, and must be treated as such by federal employees and contractors, until it is declassified by an appropriate U.S. agency.

Gad. Classified information released to the public by any means, becomes PUBLIC information.

Anybody who thinks otherwise, or thinks that the released information will not be read by any government employee or contractor because they were told not to, seriously needs a reality check.

The government needs a new file cabinet, one labeled:

PREVIOUSLY CLASSIFIED CRAP RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC

Give me a break. My sides are starting to hurt from all the laughing.

A Bit More On The Wikileaks Mess

The soldier who was supposed to have downloaded and copied all those 250,000 files?

They say he downloaded them to a Lady Ga-Ga CD.

????

Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier that has admitted releasing the flies, said:

I would come in with music on a CD-RW labelled with something like 'Lady Gaga' … erase the music … then write a compressed split file. No one suspected a thing ...

Ever try to copy a file to a pre recorded CD? The initial information on the CD - in this case, the Lady Ga-Ga stuff - cannot be "erased" and replaced. It is burned into the disc by a laser.

Says Nate over at Vox Popoli:

... anyone who's ever had any contact with US secrecy knows the official story on the leaks is complete BS. Anyone accessing a file that their name is not directly associated with gets flagged. Clearance be damned. If the system only worked 1% of the time... it still would've thrown up 250 flags on this cat, and the wrath of the prince of darkness himself would've come down.

Remember the modus operandi of the CIA and NSA is to be under-estimated. They want everyone thinking they're stupid and incompetent. It makes their job easier. This wasn't "leaked". It was deliberately given out... either by the US, or a US rival.

So... The official story stinks on ice.

Who really released all those files?

The person most damaged by the leaks is Hillary Clinton, who - shortly after the information was released - announced that her political career would end with her present job. She is certainly correct about that... Her political career is now over.

Who is/was most worried about her running for president?

Good old Barry and his gang of unelected Czars in the White House.

Some Serious Navel Gazing

The Senate Minority Leader goes nuclear:

WASHINGTON – Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is calling the founder of the online site WikiLeaks a "high-tech terrorist" for releasing classified material from the U.S. government.

McConnell says that the online release of secret diplomat exchanges has done "enormous damage" to the country and to its relationship with its allies.

"high-tech terrorist". "enormous damage". Charges like that against anyone by a sitting United States Senator are serious indeed.

Enormous damage has been done. There is no argument about that. But lets step back a bit and look this over.

There are - at least - two kinds of damage to be looked at here. There is the overall damage done to the image and reputation of the United States by the release of these documents, and then there is the actual damage itself that has been done by the actions and activities of the people these documents expose.

Which is worse? The real damage, or the reporting of it?

But this all may be just the beginning. Julius Assange has just threatened the release of 100,000 far more horrid and damaging documents if he is arrested or his site is attacked again. He has released thousands of encrypted files to thousands of sites worldwide containing the documents. These sites need only the password to unlock these files, and more than a few individuals have the password in case Assange is silenced.

It is a no-win situation for us. But is Julius Assange, a man who admittedly hates the United States, responsible for all this?

No. It is the government officials whose conduct these documents expose who are responsible.

Enormous damage has been done to the United States, but to blame the release of documents for it is to condemn the wrong criminal. It is the people whose actions and activities these documents expose who are responsible.

The United States needs secrecy in many of its activities. Our diplomats need confidentiality and privacy in their dealings with other nations. But we as American citizens should have the confidence in the government that when a man such as Julius Assange surfaces, what he reveals will not be a national embarrassment and cause enormous damage.

There can be no doubt that those new 100,000 documents will be released sooner or later. Julius Assange and the people behind him are enemies of our Republic, our nation and our way of life. They will not stop their attacks. We can only hold our breath as to what new damage will be caused and what new embarrassments will be revealed.

Mitch McConnell - and others - wants to blame Julis Assange. But Assange is just a flea on the elephants back. We need to take control of the elephant... And the donkey.

The thing these people in Washington and elsewhere fear most is term limits. To be sent home after two terms is their greatest nightmare... The loss of power and influence, the ending of that feeling of superior intelligence, the expulsion from that crowd of Washington elites.

We should get to work - all of us in all 50 States - and get a Constitutional Amendment passed for term limits next election cycle.

What would these limits be? Two two-year terms for House members. Two four-year terms for Senators and presidents. Two six-year terms for ALL Judges, including those on the Supreme Court.

Yes, it is time to put our judges back inside a fence. They have all proven beyond a doubt they cannot maintain their impartiality and are not worthy of lifetime appointments.

That would be an enormous first step to fixing our problems.

Great Find For My Emergency Stash



This is real whole milk that can be stored for months at room temperature.

Provided by Gossner Foods in Utah, this all-American product was founded in 1966 by Edwin Gossner Sr, who had devoted his life to his passion of making fine Swiss cheese. With a combined 120 years of cheese making experience, state of the art equipment, and a team of dedicated employees; Gossner Foods is a leader in the dairy industry.

What began as a strictly Swiss cheese plant has expanded until now over 30 varieties of cheese carry the Gossner name.

Gossner Foods also processes UHT (Ultra High Temperature) shelf stable milk in a variety of flavors. This milk, which is aseptically packaged, can sit on the shelf for months without refrigeration and is ideal for food storage, camping, school lunches, and your emergency stash.

There are no preservatives or growth hormones in this milk, which comes in several varieties and container sizes.

And - other than tasting a bit richer than the milk we usually buy - There is no detectable "this is stored or powdered stuff" taste, even when opened right off the shelf at room temperature. Why? Because its just ordinary liquid milk that has had an additional processing (UHT) step added.

Check out their tab "Frequently Asked Questions about U.H.T. Shelf Stable Milk". Good stuff.

We found this product at our local Dollar Store, which at first made me suspicious of it, but I decided to check it out anyway.

Glad I did.

The World's Bigget Fools... Us

The federal reserve is not our friend:

The financial crisis stretched even farther across the economy than many had realized, as new disclosures show the Federal Reserve rushed trillions of dollars in emergency aid not just to Wall Street but also to motorcycle makers, telecom firms and foreign-owned banks in 2008 and 2009.

My God... How much longer are we going to allow these thieving bastards to plunder our money?

This man is not your friend, he is a dangerous enemy

Men like Bernanke and those of his ilk should be tried as traitors by the American people and then hung. They have taken our money by the trillions and thrown it away like so much sand in the ocean. They are doing damage to our nation that Hitler, or Stalin, or Mao, could have only dreamed of.

And here we sit, solidly on our thumbs, looking forward to the useless junk our next paycheck will allow to buy.

But... But... It's the Christmas season! We all need more stuff!

What we all need is more sense.

The Wikileak Release

Congressman Peter King, the incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, called for WikiLeaks to be reclassified as a terrorist organisation after the latest release of top secret intelligence documents.

He claimed that the data breach was 'worse than a military attack. Said career politician King:

I am calling on the attorney general and supporting his efforts to fully prosecute WikiLeaks and its founder for violating the Espionage Act.

Whats really happening here?

These releases are exposing a level of deception, thievery, illegal activity and outright lies by our government officials that are astounding in their scope, and the measure of damage to us as a nation caused by these people and their actions is yet to be fully realized.

We need to be very careful before declaring any group that exposes these people and their tactics as violating our "Espionage Act", when these leaks are educating the American public about the absolute level of scumbaggery and outright evil being conducted in their name.

Embarrassing? Yes, for the governmental officials that are being exposed. Just listen to them scream.

Eye opening? Yes, for an American public that has been misled and compromised by individuals and groups that have no conscience, no honor, no allegiance to anything or anyone but themselves.

It is sad that this kind of official malfeasance can only be exposed by foreigners, rather than our own investigative agencies who are obviously asleep at the switch.

So... Before we throw the baby out with the bath water, let's just see which is dirtier.

If we've been played by these people, let's man up and handle the situation. But let's not kill the messenger.

Pushing When It's Foolhardy

YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea – A U.S. supercarrier and South Korean destroyer took up position in the tense Yellow Sea on Sunday for joint military exercises that were a united show of force just days after a deadly North Korean artillery attack.

North Korea and China may believe that the United States has its military stretched to the breaking point already and will not able to confront them in a showdown against South Korea, the U.S. having neither the resources nor equipment to engage in yet another military adventure.

This is most likely true. We have bled our military dry these last ten years fighting no-win wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are deep in debt and close to national bankruptcy, and the nation as a whole is sick and tired of these supposed wars against terror, and has had its fill of our youngsters coming back home with missing pieces or in body bags.

This would seem a good time for China and the North Koreans to "re-unite" Korea, force us out of the picture, just as it was done in Viet Nam. This is - and always has been - the ultimate goal for North Korea, a United Korea.

But there is a huge difference in the U.S. military now and the political thinking that directs it. During the Viet Nam conflict we were not stretched beyond our capabilities as fully as we now are, and did not have "tactical nukes" to fall back on as we do today.

We now see in Washington a political mindset that is much more favorable to the idea of "tactical nukes" as a battlefield option. The idea is that using these "tactical nukes" on the battlefield is somehow more acceptable and not the same as blanket bombing an enemy with huge megaton weapons, and that their use will not trigger an all-out nuclear exchange.

The idea of using these weapons is no longer "unthinkable".

Keep in mind that Obama has no military savvy at all. He listens to his advisors who are part of the military-indrustrial complex and his career Generals and Admirals, all of whom prefer endless war.

It is a definite possibility that - if the Chinese and North Koreans launch a full-scale invasion of the South - Those career Generals and Admiral's will see tactical nukes as an only option to "protect" our our 30,000 troops in South Korea.

And this very thin-skinned president that will not allow himself to be pushed around by anybody, may just agree with them.

The Chinese and North Koreans must understand that pushing a maxed-out United States with a president that has a Chicago mobster-style background is far more dangerous than cornering a wounded grizzley.

Much more.

Consider the results if the North Koreans - in response - used a perhaps Chinese-supplied "tactical nuke" on that supercarrier we have steaming up and down their coastline.

All bets would then be off, wouldn't they?

Quietly In His Sleep


Prince Chunk, the 44-pound cat that was found abandoned and then adopted by a New Jersey family, has died quietly in his sleep.

Prince Chunk’s adoptive owner, Vince Damiani of Blackwood, said the white tabby died in his sleep Sunday. He was about 10 years old. Damiani said a veterinarian had diagnosed the cat with heart disease.

Now I know there's a lot of cat haters out there that would say "good riddance", but they just don't matter in the long run.

Behold The God That Bleeds*

Unvetted President Barack Obama needed 12 stitches in his upper lip after taking an elbow to the mouth during a pickup basketball game Friday morning.

12 stitches. That's gotta be a doozy of a fat lip.

The White House identified the elbower Rey Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.

Said Dederega:

I learned today the president is both a tough competitor and a good sport.

That would be on the basketball court of course. Qualities that would be useful in the white House - If he was ever there - Instead of flying around from place to place in Air Force One, jabbering inanely away to very carefully selected audiences filled with adoring zomboids.

Playing games with yet another Mexican politician. That should give you a clue or two about the future of effective border security.

"Not If I Could Avoid It"

How nice for her.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the question, Would she submit to a pat-down?

"Not if I could avoid it," Clinton says. "No. I mean, who would?"

She says she understands "how offensive it must be" for some people to undergo the searches.

Really? The only thing she understands is how offensive it is to her.

And the new House Majority leader bypasses the entire security setup. He is given the kid glove treatment and escorted around the TSA agents, right past their blue gloved zombies, and all that radiation-producing, horrendously expensive "hi-tech" machinery.

At least the old House majority leader Pelosi avoided the issue by flying privately on taxpayer-owned aircraft.

Boehner could have instantly collected millions of more supporters nationwide by simply enduring one televised public pat-down.

But what does he do? He flips his permanently tanned middle finger at us and plays his "I'm special" card.

What an IDIOT. But then again, he's part of the Republican elite. How could one expect anything else?

Note:
I was once a Republican, but when the Republican party served up that dopehead idiot Bush the Younger for president, I jumped ship... Forever. Did I then go vote Democratic? Get serious. Just look at the narcissistic (but smooth-talking) simpleton they gave us.

And now... And now... The Republicans are serving up that "Let's fight all of Israel's wars" Zionist puppet "Momma grizzly" Palin, and the Democrats - bless their unionized and corrupted progressive souls - are having second thoughts about their unvetted hero, and whoever they replace him with will be even worse... guaranteed.

The Republic's chances without a full scale and incredibly bloodly revolt?

Zero.

Body Scans Et Al

Get exposed to radiation, large doses of it, or get their titties twisted and their clits pinched. Now there's a great choice for our women if they want to fly anywhere.

A growing number of airline passengers, labor unions, and advocacy groups say the new procedures--a choice of full-body scans or what the TSA delicately calls "enhanced pat-downs"--go too far.

Yup... Way too far.

Ever wonder how many terrorist bombers have been caught at American airports since we started putting up with all this idiocy imposed on us all by pervs with badges? How many terrorists have been caught trying to fly from say - Denver to Chicago? 1000? 10? 1? Zero?

Americans flying from one American destination to another shouldn't have to put up with any of this foolishness.

For all the money we have thrown down the rathole on all this airport security, did it stop the Christmas underpants bomber?

Quite a few of these TSA terrorist hunters that fondle our women with their supposed "pat-down" need to have the shit kicked out of them... More than once if necessary.

But this being modern America, there may not be any men left with the balls to do it.

Hello Terrorist

Beyond sanity:

A former leader of a '70s protest group responsible for bombing the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, police stations and other targets is worried that "racist, armed, hostile, crazy-making" tea parties pose an "unspeakable" threat to America.

Bernardine Dohrn, who with her husband William Ayers were leaders of the communist revolutionary Weather Underground, had been tied to so many acts of protest violence in the '70s that she was placed on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List.

It seems to me that a society that wishes to protect itself and survive would quickly remove lunatics like Bernardine and William from circulation and not allow them any influence whatever over the general public.

But... America today is not such a society. America is on a suicidal path to oblivion and so allows psychopaths like these two free rein everywhere.

When the Ayers - and their ilk - get the world they have bombed and destroyed for, I am certain it won't be anything like what they discussed in the day when their drug-induced euphoria led them down their path to a unbelievable state of intellectual-sounding insanity.

All of us who have paid little or no attention to the Ayers of the world need to pay attention now. They are nothing more than a thorn in our side that has caused a festering wound. However, if we do nothing, the wound will eventually be fatal.

So... Yank them out, get rid of them. The world will not long mourn their passing.

Hi Ho Silver!

Silver and gold rushed to new highs as the fed announced it will print 600 billion more dollars to buy a bit more of the federal government debt.

How many realize that when Obama took office, that there was only 800 billion dollars in circulation? Worldwide? Now, with this additional 600 billion, the fed will have printed over 2.6 TRILLION new dollars to add to that 800 billion already in circulation.

There is now three times as many dollars chasing the available goods and services that there was just two years ago.

How do you spell I N F L A T I O N?

Coming soon to a wallet near you...

H Y P E R - I N F L A T I O N.

Wowzers, folks.

The very minute China quits buying our debt, the game's over, and then a wheel barrel full of cash won't buy you a decent meal.

You're gonna love it... Ask the Germans.

But Obama and his buddies will have the solution... A new world currency!

You're gonna really love that.

Step One

Nancy Pelosi is on the way out.

Once considered as one of the most powerful women in America, she is now being returned to her ho-hum position as just another debt-loving big government tax-and-spend Progressive in the house. Look for her to retire... If she can even consider - for an instant - leaving those halls of power and influence. Probably not.

It's a good sign... At least one of the lunatics that have been running the asylum has been put back into her cell.

Remember what she said when appointed House speaker? "No more deficit spending!" Five trillion dollars worth of additional deficit spending later, we finally boot her out of the drivers seat.

But it's just a start. There's still plenty of her fellow lunatics running around the halls of Congress that need to be reined in... Barbara Boxer, Barney Franks. Harry Reid... It's a long list.

But round two, the 2012 elections, is just around the corner, and there's a much bigger target than Nancy or Harry this time.

No slacking off now, the job is far from finished.

Bare-Knuckled Fistfight For All The Marbles

The gloves are off, no doubt about it. Watch this.

Great music.

Only in America can you go to jail for taking a eagle's egg out of its nest - But get paid for crushing a human infant in its mothers womb, yanking it out, and tossing it into the garbage.

But... If you think this type of political ad is as bad as it gets, just watch whats coming in these last two weeks.

Bank Holiday

hmmmm.

If this mortgage fraud thing gets much bigger, it's going to take down a bag full of banks, and we can be expecting the banks to shut their doors for a week or two - or three.

Best to have a bit of cash around the house (in small bills) for groceries and gas while the banks reboot.

Thanks to DC for this heads up.

Yes, That Was An Alarm Bell I Was Ringing...

Here's yer sign Bubba.....

Democrats in the Senate on Thursday held a recess hearing covering a taxpayer bailout of union pensions and a plan to seize private 401(k) plans to more "fairly" distribute taxpayer-funded pensions to everyone.

They are going to take a substantial portion of your retirement funds and give them to the unions who promised the moon to their members.

And they call this being "fair".

End of facts, start of opinion

I'll just bet you didn't realize that now a substantial portion of your work effort - and the money you earned - will be going to provide some union member with his $50,000/year retirement pension, and that's its already happening, compliments of the Stimulus Bill.

What more proof do Americans need to finally understand that this Congress and this Administration are nothing but a gang of looters?

Seizing your 401K - any part of it - is just plain theft. Giving it to someone who hasn't earned it is just plain evil.

Our only reasonable response is to relieve them of all those law-making burdens and return them to whence they came.

The only way to do that is to get off your butts and go vote. Vote these thieves out of office. Vote for somebody: Democrat, Republican, Independent, who cares what they are, that will look after your interests - instead of looting you endlessly.

It's your future. Make of it what you will.

Emergency Supplies

I purchased the below MRE's just to see what they are, what their shelf life is and what sort of meal they would make.



These are paks offered by Emergency Essentials out of Utah. Each pak contains:

Main entree
Side dish
Dessert
Drink mix
Cracker or bread
Peanut butter
Jam or jelly
Two pieces of hard candy
wet wipe & napkin
Plastic spork (spoon/fork)

There was also a salt and a pepper in each pak.

The main entrees in these four paks were: Chicken with tomatoes and feta cheese; Marinara sauce with meatballs; Cheese Tortellini in tomato sauce; Spaghetti with meat sauce.

The side dishes were: Cornbread stuffing; Refried beans; Refried black beans; Garlic mashed potatoes.

The desserts were: Fig bar; Fig bar;
Chocolate covered chocolate chip ranger bar; Apple-cinnamon flavor energy bar.

The drinks mixes were: Sugar-free Raspberry; Pink lemonade; Sugar-free raspberry; Another sugar-free raspberry.

The cracker/bread option in all four was wheat snack bread, great for the peanut butter and jelly.



Pretty fancy eating for somebody in a survival situation.

Whether these were actual military MRE's I do not know, and I couldn't find a use by/expiration date anywhere. Perhaps the sealed pouches in the cardboard boxes have them.

Each pak had an MRE heater to heat up your main entree which required a bit of water to activate, but no cooking was required for any of the items.

My plan would be to take each main entree and use it as a "sauce" on a bowl of rice. This would flavor the rice and double the mileage out of each entree.

I am looking at cheaper options for longer term periods, since paks like these would be in our BOB's. Buying a bunch of the MRE Main entrees would be much cheaper and go further, especially with the added rice option.

At any rate, these food paks seem to be pretty neat items to have around in case of a unexpected emergency.

My next step to to try a couple using my emergency charcoal/wood stove to prepare the rice and see how good these things are. If they're edible, great! I'm not looking for world-class taste sensations here, just nutritional food that you can swallow without puking, although good taste is somewhat of a priority.

Let you know how this turns out.

Who Am I?

I was born in one country, raised in another.
My father was born in another country. I was
Not his only child. He fathered several
Children with numerous women.

I became very close to my mother, as my
Father showed no interest in me. My mother
Died at an early age from cancer. I became
Close with my grandmother.

Later in life, questions arose over my real
Name.

My birth records were sketchy and no one was
Able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth
Certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted
To Christianity, as it was widely accepted in
My country, but I practiced non-traditional
Beliefs & didn't follow Christianity, except
In the public eye under scrutiny.

I worked and lived among lower-class people
As a young adult, disguising myself as
Someone who really cared about them..

That was before I decided it was time to get
Serious about my life and I embarked on a new
Career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing
Up. It was clear to those who read my
Memoirs that I had difficulties accepting
That my father abandoned me as a child.

I became active in local politics in my 30's
Then with help behind the scenes, I literally
Burst onto the scene as a candidate for
National office in my 40s. They said I had a
Golden tongue and could talk anyone into
Anything. That reinforced my conceit.

I had a virtually non-existent resume,
Little work history, and no experience in
Leading a single organization. Yet I was a
Powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to
Me as though I was a magnet and they were
Small roofing tacks.

I drew incredibly large crowds during my
Public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on
My country's foreign policy. I was very
Critical of my country in the last war and
Seized every opportunity to bash my country.

But what launched my rise to national
Prominence were my views on the country's
Economy. I pretended to have a really good
Plan on how we could do better and every poor
Person would be fed & housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for
Getting us into this mess. It was the free
Market, banks & corporations. I decided to
Start making citizens hate them and if they
Were envious of others who did well, the plan
Was clinched tight.

I called mine "A People's Campaign" and that
Sounded good to all people.

I was the surprise candidate because I
Emerged from outside the traditional path of
Politics & was able to gain widespread
Popular support.

I knew that, if I merely offered the people
'hope', together we could change our country
And the world.

So, I started to make my speeches sound like
They were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor,
Ignorant to include "persecuted minorities"
Like the Jews. My true views were not
Widely known & I needed to keep them unknown,
Until after I became my nation's leader.

I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody
Could have easily found out what I really
Believed, if they had simply read my writings
And examined those people I associated with.

I'm glad they didn't. Then, I became the
Most powerful man in the world. And the world
Learned the truth.

Who am I?


I am Adolf Hitler.

Is that who you were thinking of?

Surprise

Something big is about to happen.

The smart money boys are running for the safest hidey-hole they can find for their money, and nation after nation is posting their "look out!" flags.

What we are witnessing in the worldwide financial arena is a pattern of actions that has happened before - Several times - followed by a major world-changing event.

The people who really know whats going on are running for cover.

Hold on to your seats... The ride is about to start.

Water for The Big City

We live out in the boondocks with the usual dirt road and overhead power lines, accompanied by the not-unexpected benign disregard from county and State, not an ungood thing... generally.

Nothing much happens out here. Sometimes a kid in his souped-up truck races by, stirring up clouds of dust and exceeding the speed limit by double on our unpatrolled road. The mailgirl (mail girl?) will make her way down the road, lurching from mailbox to mailbox, always in such a hurry that she never manages to close the boxes - after she's finished stuffing them with unwanted advertising fliers that meet their deserved fate in garbage cans all along the road.

So it's quite an event when lots of semi trucks start lining up on the road loaded with 40" water pipes.


(click on photos to enlarge)

Turns out the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex needs more water for their expanding bedroom communities, so they are reaching out into the countryside looking for those rural reservoirs that service the smaller towns.




Soon, those big 40" pipes will be buried and forgotten, until the water wars start. Then, all those little-town citizens will discover that their water rights were sold by their mayors and city councils, signing contracts whose fine print will state that the big city always has priority on the water.

Of course, all those little-town Mayors and council members are not so stupid as not to know about the fine print, but they are banking on the hope that another drought big enough to stop the reservoir-filling rains will never happen again.

And besides, all those under-the-table back-pocket "considerations" they got from the big city movers and shakers were too good to pass up.

And, what the hay, all they have to worry about is a few countrified buttcrack bubbas that they can out-talk any ole' day of the week.

Piece of cake, Mayor, piece of cake.

Cooler Weather

Finally.

Those 100 degree days are over for the year, giving me the chance to do a lot of needed outside work on the fence, weatherproofing and caulking all those little cracks that show up every year or so.

I backed out the John Deere in preparation to mow the acre and when I came back with some gas, Mr. Tufters had laid claim to the mowers seat.



Yes, that look is one that says, "Just try to get me off this seat!"

However, Mr. Tufters is easy prey to an offered kitty treat - problem solved.

A True Racist Bites The Dust

The sun always rises:

CNN anchor Rick Sanchez was fired Friday by the news network after he went on a tirade during a radio interview calling Jon Stewart a “bigot” and accusing the "elite, Northeast establishment liberals” of labeling him as “second-tier” because of his Cuban-American background..."

Rick Sanches was one reason I quit watching CNN. His blatant anti-white, pro-Mexican attitude was obvious in every story he pursued, and it just got tiresome, his endless racist spittle hidden under a thin veneer of "reporting".

His kind of attitude, parroted by so many minorities, that they can be a biased and arrogant racist loudmouth because they're a minority has run it's course.

Many of the most racist people today in America are the minorities themselves, supported by white liberal guilt... And unchallenged for the same reason.

Rick Sanchez rode his "blame/hate whitey" horse right into the ground, so hard that even the liberal guilt peddlers at CNN had to act.

That, all by itself, is amazing.

Don't look now, but Soledad O'Brien may be the next to hit the bricks. She is so loaded with liberal guilt that her excessive fawning over minorities is just plain embarrassing.

Duck And Cover

The signs... They are everywhere.

Not the billboards and posters littering our highways and streets, begging us to buy, buy, buy.

Not those kinds of signs.

I'm talking of the signs, signposts and indicators pointing to the unmentionable and unacceptable but undeniable approach of our collapse.

As the majority of Americans forge onward through their self-created fog of plausible deniability, I get a morbid kind of satisfaction watching as the very foundation of society slowly washes away beneath their feet.

Sign: Unemployment is not going down.

They have offshored our factories, our manufacturing capability - our jobs - to third world nations where workers make $2.00/day. These jobs will not be replaced or recovered in our lifetimes. We have no jobs to offer, no factories to offer jobs, because we cannot compete with the people that today are creating the things we used to create in the very factories we gave them, for a tenth of what we made them for.

Those highly touted stimulus-created jobs will vanish when the money dries up, then watch unemployment figure rise even further.

Sign: The debt continues to climb.

The Obama administration loves to blame Bush for the debt. Well, its true. Bush - a Progressive tri-lateralist and dedicated one-worlder - did create the first stimulus, get us into two disastrous wars, promoted the Progressive policies that Obama champions today. Obama and Bush are two peas in the same pod, but Obama buys a bit of time - and wiggle room - by blaming his predecessor.

But... Obama is increasing our debt at a rate four times faster than Bush, with no plans to start slowing down.

I could do this for pages and pages, but those of you reading this already know this, it's just preaching to the choir.

How about the housing market? It's about to implode.

How about rising costs? Of everything? That's being caused by the continuing loss of value of the dollar. What's causing that? They're printing more money - billions and billions - to buy back our debt. That's NEVER worked, never will. But it does destroy our money.(it's called inflation... That leads to hyper-inflation)

We won't wake up tomorrow to face the greatest collapse of a nation in the history of man. It takes time to slide down the slope from the very top to the very bottom.

But the signs are there... That we are sliding by the last exit.

So I will be spending more time and effort to dig in, to create something I can duck behind.

And besides, you do realize that this Administration and this Congress has passed laws that make it illegal to criticize the government in times of a national emergency?

Wouldn't want to break any new laws, now would we?

The Ultimate Snub

I just watched Obama address the UN. Durned if he didn't sound like Reagan with all his references to freedom and opportunity. His lofty oration on such things made me wonder if I was watching a confused stand-in instead of the real man.

FOX news (after Obama's speech) mentioned that Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be speaking shortly after Obama, and mentioned that our UN delegation was not present at Ahmadinejad's last speech to the UN. They had walked out, leaving only a lowly note-taker present. This is considered as the ultimate snub by one Nation to another.

The FOX talking heads wondered if our UN delegation would do the same thing today or remain in the chamber.

Which brings me to my main point today:

While Obama was speaking to the UN, cameras continually panned to the Israeli delegation section, showing that the Israeli delegation was not present. Their seats were empty. Apparently not even a note-taker.

So. Before the entire world, today at the UN, Israel delivered the ultimate snub to the United States, a Nation without who's total support Israel would cease to exist.

OK. If they want to embarrass the United States, spit in our faces with the entire world watching, fine by me. But let them experience the real world consequences of such actions.

Actions DO have consequences, and it's about time we started to give Israel the opportunity to learn this fact.

Remove our support. Apply the same sanctions to Israel as we have applied to Iran. Level the playing field.

I'm no fan of either side in this insane war and am constantly amazed how America let itself be trapped into propping up one side in this endless war over property rights.

And by the way FOX news fans, although FOX news talked of our delegation walking out on Iran's president recently, they made NO mention about Israels' disgusting show of contempt for the President of the United States today, even if it was Obama.

Maybe FOX should practice what it preaches... Fair and balanced reporting.

Don't hold your breath.

Who Came First?

Reading Fred's latest offers nothing to help stop the insanity, but it does point to the roots of all this mayhem.

Fred mentions some possible reasons why Moslems are trying to bury us. says Fred:

I find Buchanan, of the American Conservative, proclaiming that Islam is a Culture of Jihad, and most militant. No doubt. Very. Would it be poltroonish of me to note that just now Christian armies are busily annexing and wrecking Afghanistan and Iraq, having recently bombed Somalia? That they use robotic aircraft to murder Yemenis... encourage Israel to ruin Lebanon and to run a concentration camp for Moslems in Gaza, enthusiastically murder Pakistanis from the sky, and threaten Syria and Iran?

Those are real armies we are using, well armed and incredibly powerful armies, not a few buffoons armed with dated equipment and no proper training.

Fred continues:

The Islamic countries listed above are only those currently attacked by America. Let us look at the matter in another way. I append here a list of all Christian countries conquered by militant Moslems since 1529:

- - - - -

Next, a partial list of Moslem countries conquered by Christians:

Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Iraq (the first time), Iraq (again), Iran, Pakistan, East Pakistan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Dubai…

This list does not include such minor Christian conquests as North, South, and Central America, India, China, Southeast Asia, black Africa, and such.

So there you are, Christians... The pendulum is swinging back the other way. Your days of romping though nation after nation, backed by massive and unbeatable armies planting crosses everywhere - including places where they were not wanted - has reached its pinnacle. Your armies are no longer winning, not because they can't win, but because they are not allowed to win... By your own leaders that want them - and you - to lose.

Time for a few generations of "Their turn" to keep the kettle boiling.

Your heroes, such as Limbaugh and Beck, promote peaceful and lawful response. Yup... That's going to work out well against a horde of radical religious fanatics who will stone your wife or daughter to death for wearing a pair of jeans in public.

Our Muslim educated president is helping. Our Socialist/Progressive Congress is helping. Our uninformed and disinterested majority is helping.

The sun is setting on the Judeo-Christian religion, which is to say the Jewish religion. Christians can no longer pray in public or in schools. The ten Commandments cannot be publicly displayed. Children displaying Christian or Jewish symbols are expelled. Christian practices everywhere in America are under attack by government at every level.

Not that it matters.

There will be another day, another sunrise one day for Christan's in this endless and millennia-old conflict, so it matters not who came first... The Jew or the Arab.

But for the foreseeable future, invest in a Burkah factory. Your descendants will be grateful.

"There Are No More Good Men Left Here"

A predictable result of an endless and winless war:

A dozen US soldiers are facing trail accused of being part of a 'kill team' that allegedly killed Afghan civilians in an arbitrary fashion - and they even collected their victims' fingers as trophies of war.

Five soldiers have been charged with the killing three Afghan men 'for sport'. And seven more are accused of covering up the murders.

Our troops are not fighting an identifiable army in either Iraq or Afghanistan. They are fighting civilians whose only effective methods of combat are blowing up convoys or sniping from cover.

It is inevitable that soldiers under those conditions will start to see all civilians as the enemy and start treating them as such.

This kind of conduct marks the the point where an army starts to disintegrate.

I will not be at all surprised if incidents such as this continue to rise in number. I will not be at all surprised to learn that this sort of thing is already far more common than admitted by anyone in the military or the government.

Those soldiers that have lost whatever moral footing they had because of these wars? The ones that now kill for fun?

How do we handle them when they return home?

99 Lashes

Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, has also been sentenced to 99 lashes for a photo published of her without a headscarf, according to her son.

99 lashes.

Maybe these lunatic judges who sentence any human to 99 lashes need a taste of what they are inflicting on others.

Let's say... Any judge that imposes 99 lashes on someone has to endure just ten lashes of the same intensity, before they pass sentence, or be tossed from the bench.

My money says that those camel jockeys would never see another woman being lashed for any reason, and would have to get their sick jollies some other way.

99 lashes for a photo without a headscarf.

How sick and demented can a society get?

Get Real

Give me a freaking break:

KABUL—The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.

Put our troops in danger? what the hell does this spit-and polish chair polisher think the troops are in now? I would love to hear him explain how burning a book that foments violence will "damage" the war effort. What will it do, make the war more warlike?

We watch almost daily as spittle-dribbling ragheads burn American flags everywhere in the Muslim world. OK, for every flag they burn, we burn a Quran. Insult for insult. Senseless, but something they may understand.

Gen. David Petraeus also said:

The Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.

Protecting Afghan civilians is their mission?

What a crock of mealy-mouthed BS. Their mission was to get Osama. If that is no longer their mission in Afghanistan, then get them the hell out, and then we won't have to worry about a bunch of 12th century throwbacks foaming at the mouth.

The Arabs, the Muslims, the Semites... they don't want us on their "sacred" soil. OK, let's get off it. Leave them to their own devices. Leave them alone to go their merry goat-humping ways. But let them know that if they keep messing with us, we will blow them back to the stone age.

Tell Me A story

From the Army Times:

7 Advise and Assist Brigades, made up of troops from BCTs, still in Iraq.

As the final convoy of the Army’s 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Lewis, Wash., entered Kuwait early Thursday, a different Stryker brigade remained in Iraq.

Soldiers from the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division are {being} deployed in Iraq as members of an Advise and Assist Brigade, the Army’s designation for brigades selected to conduct security force assistance.

So while the “last full U.S. combat brigade” have left Iraq, just under 50,000 soldiers from specially trained heavy, infantry and Stryker brigades will stay, as well as two combat aviation brigades.

You can't believe a thing Obama says. If he's on TV, or a stage somewhere with his teleprompters, if his mouth is moving, he's lying.

What about all those roughly 120,000 "for hire" mercenaries we have over there? They're not going anywhere and are estimated to double in number now that "real" soldiers are pulling out.

50,000 troops still in Korea.
Tens of thousands still in Japan.
Thousands more in Germany.
And now, 50,000 more in Iraq, also intended to remain there forever.

We have something like 180,000 American troops on foreign soil. Doing what? Keeping the peace? Yeah, that's working out real well. They will do nothing to prevent Israel from attacking Iran, WW3's estimated trigger point.

The hardnuts reality:

American troops in Iraq is not the real problem... The Jews in Palestine are. That a few million Jewish Americans and a few million more Old Testament Christians think differently will - in the end - make no difference.

In case you haven't noticed - the Muslims are taking over Western Civilization everywhere. They will eventually nullify the present massive support for Israel at its source, and then move to remove the Jews from Palestinian soil. Isreal will - of course - do whatever is possible to try to survive.

In the end, Israel will use its hidden stock of nukes in a final attempt to play out it's biblical stage show, taking countless millions of innocents with them.

An unintended positive in all this... It will eliminate all the nuclear weapon stockpiles around the world. That they will be used is a only a minor inconvenience. The few surviving cavemen will be totally free of fear from nuclear attack.

Quietly Waiting...

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Friday brushed aside a key piece of evidence in the ethics case against her as "staff chatter."

Staff chatter.

It will be a fine day indeed when this disgusting example of an out-of-control ego, this example of unbounded arrogance and chicanery gets convicted and tossed out of office.

Oh, for the good old days, when they used to toss rotten vegetables at this kind of human chaff and then ride them out of town - tarred and feathered - on a rail.

I'm patient, I'll wait as long as necessary.

Maddogs And Congresswomen In The Noonday Sun

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the Ground Zero Mosque. Said this madwoman:

There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.

How typical of her... She thinks that the opposition must be "funded" by someone, some group or another. It can't possibly be a spontaneous upwelling of anger by ordinary Americans to an obvious slap in the face by our oh-so-touchy Muslim "friends".

We are told we must be totally responsive to all those Muslim sensitivities, allow them to practice Sharia law in the United States, let their women hide behind veils and masks, cut the noses and ears off defiant women(typical Muslim activity) stone them to death or kill them in the name of family "honor", etc., etc., etc.

The poor little dears get all excited if they don't have their way.

But it's a two-way street. If they demand all that kid-glove treatment, we can demand the same from them... Go build your mosque somewhere else.

Otherwise, those guys can all go screw themselves.

But then, they already do that. That must be why San Francisco - Based Pelosi likes them so much... all that man-on-man sex. (None of them will ever attack her)

Abraham Lincoln wanted to ship every black in America back to Africa. No sense trying to deny it, it's all in the official records.

He shared the conviction of most Americans of his time, that blacks could not be assimilated into white society. He rejected the notion of social equality of the races, and held to the view that blacks should be resettled abroad.

Turns out he was right. But he never imagined that in a hundred years, whites would be assimilating into a black society.

Maybe we can get Barry Sotero to conclude that Muslims are no different - that they will not assimilate - and should be shipped back to wherever they came from.

You know... Like the twenty million Mexican illegals we have busily non-assimilating in America today.

White Christians are rapidly losing this nation to both the Muslims and the Mexicans. The only question remaining is: Which of those two will win?

And crazy madwoman Pelosi is helping both.

Gotta wonder what she thinks her reward will be.

The American of the future: A dark-skinned religious fanatic that quotes sharia law with a Mexican dialect that occasionally slips into Ebonics whenever a (by then) rare white woman bimbos by.

... With a Chinese overlord.

Go team.

The Closet Muslim Speaks

Said our Muslim-in-Chief Friday:

Let me be clear: As a citizen and as President I believe that Muslims have the same right ... to build a place of worship and a community centre on private property in Lower Manhattan.

This was not a slip of the tongue, or a poor choice of words. The man was raised a Muslim. He has Muslim ideas, Muslim beliefs and Muslim sensitivities. That he presently claims to be a Christian means nothing... That's only necessary cover. Just look at his twenty years with that America- hating radical,"Reverend" Wright, who's "church" he spent his Sundays in.

Now, he has backtracked over his support for plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero, not because of a change of heart, but because of the huge uproar over his comments.

But Obama will not change his position. He will just waffle a bit until the uproar settles down. This man is no American. This latest gaff only further supports that statement.

I'll bet one thing:

If this Mosque gets built - or maybe even started - it's going to be burned down.

So How Old Was The Airplane?


One passenger was killed when an airplane crashed in bad weather and split into two when landing early Monday on the island of San Andres, Colombia, officials said.

Actually, it broke apart into three pieces.

This plane broke apart just forward of the wings and just aft of the wings, points where the most stress and strain is placed on the fuselage. I'll bet serious money that if proper inspections had been conducted, they would have found stress cracks and fractures at those points.

A point to ponder... Airlines like this one buy used planes from major carriers, after those carriers determine the airframe has reached a point where they are no longer considered safe - without expending an excessive amount of money on maintenance. So they peddle them to overseas carriers that have little or no concern about the age or the number of takeoff/landing cycles of the plane, carriers that may consider a proper inspection consists of signing off on a few pieces of paperwork.

This particular plane was a Boeing 737-700. Just how old? I was riding 737's a quarter-century ago.

131 people gambled their lives on this typical south-of-the-border airline operator.

130 were incredibly lucky.

Want to go to Columbia? Take the Titanic... Your chances of getting there alive will be better.

Surprise, Surprise

Liar is as liar does:
President Obama has abolished the position in his White House dedicated to transparency and shunted those duties into the portfolio of a partisan ex-lobbyist who is openly antagonistic to the notion of disclosure by government and politicians.

Don't be shocked... This progressive dirt bag has reversed positions on just about everything he promised as a candidate.

As a child, I used to get whipped for lying. To my parents then - and to me now - lying was one of the worst things I could do. It broke the bonds of trust between us and made anything I said suspect. My parents would not tolerate lying, and taught me the same virtue.

Now we have presidents and politicans of all stripes everywhere lying to us about everything. We can't trust them. To me, they are all lying scum, unworthy of any postion of public service.

Lying repeatedly like they do should be an impeachable offense.

Toss the bums out. All of them.

The Sun Is Setting In The West

1,426 posts.

That's just about enough.

Right? Wrong.


A job is not a "right". It is something you prove you deserve by demonstrating your experience and education for whatever a particular job requires.

We gotta get off this "rights" bandwagon. No one has a "right" to a job, or to own a home, or a car, or anything else.

We have a "Right" to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but no guarantee whatever on any of them.

Nothing about a job. You gotta earn that for yourself.

Somebody needs to tell that witless fool that sitting on her butt holding a sign declaring that a job is a "right" will absolutely guarantee that no employer will give her a seconds notice, or a job either.

Newsweek Magazine Bought for $1.00

Hmmm, didn't think it was worth that much...

91-year-old audio magnate, Sidney Harman, purchased Newsweek for $1.00, plus the assumption of liabilities for the magazine.

I guess it was like going to an auction or a garage sale and seeing something you just had to have, the cost being no object.

Gee. I wish I had enough resources to be able to toss money around like that.

Excuses, Excuses

A Sydney woman jailed for stabbing her 18-year-old younger sister to death following a fight over internet access and a hair straightener was found dead in her prison cell yesterday.

The 22-year-old woman suffered from the mood-altering condition congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which leads to excess production of testosterone, and by August 2008 had the testosterone levels of an adult male.

Justice Elizabeth Fullerton found her mental state compromised her perceptions and her capacity to control herself or distinguish right from wrong.

Wait a minute... Having the testosterone levels of an adult male leads to the inability to control ones self or to distinguish right from wrong?

If so, why hasn't every adult male on earth gone over the cliff?

What a bunch of nonsense. We are supposed to believe in the absolute ability of women to act more mature and reasonable than men, that girls mature earlier, yadda yadda, but if they have to contend with a man's normal level of testosterone, it all goes out the window?

Justice Elizabeth Fullerton. Following her reasoning, us guys should have all stabbed our younger brothers to death and been dead by suicide by age 22.

That, or women - things being truly equal - can't handle situations and emotions nearly as well as we have been led to believe.

But you already knew that. It's just been unacceptable to discuss it.

The Walrus Came from Washington

Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff Paul Babeu:

Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help."

Mind-boggling. The federal government is siding with the likes of the ACLU, La Raza and other wholly racist groups.

So says the Sheriff. What did the founders say?

They said it all our Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

The Walrus and The Carpenter
Lewis Carroll, Thru the Looking Glass

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright--
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.


The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done--
"It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"


The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead--
There were no birds to fly.


The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
"If this were only cleared away,"
They said, "it would be grand!"


"If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.


"O Oysters, come and walk with us!"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each."


The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head--
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.


But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat--
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.


Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
And more, and more, and more--
All hopping through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.


The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.


"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."


"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried,
"Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.


"A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed--
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."


"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said.
"Do you admire the view?


"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf--
I've had to ask you twice!"


"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"


"I weep for you," the Walrus said:
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.


"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none--
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.

All us little fat little oysters have arrived... Except for this old oyster.

With What?

President Barack Obama says it's time for the embattled 80-year-old former Ways and Means Chairman to end his career "with dignity."

This classic congressional con artist has been charged with 13 ethics violations. It's not just 13 instances, but hundreds of instances lumped into 13 categories.

If Obama thinks that resigning under a cloud like this is ending a career "with dignity", what must his standards of ethics be?

My vote says he has none. But you already knew that.

Wildly Successful

Al Qaeda's second in command Ayman Al-Zawahiri has surfaced again, this time threatening more attacks against the U.S. and the West.

A lesson in strategy here...

Osama said early on his goal was to destroy America's economy, the engine that supports all our incursions into foreign nations. After his attack on the Twin Towers, the results have been successful beyond his wildest imagination.

That attack resulted in hundreds of billions wasted on massive new layers of supposed enhanced security, huge new bureaucracies and thousands of freedom-robbing new laws. The spending and the bureaucracy continues to grow, the laws get more onerous by the day, and all Al-Qaeda needs to do is send some stumblebum idiot over every now and again to botch a gasoline bombing attempt - right past all this massive and incredibly expensive new security we have - to keep us forever in a state of national panic and fear.

And the occasional threat, as stated above. Al-Qaeda has learned that a nation full of creampuffs who will give up everything to be "safe", will respond to another vocal threat just like Pavlov's dogs did to a ringing dinner bell.

The latest message, which cost Al-Qaeda no money and no lives, will have the same effect here as before. Billions more dollars thrown down the rabbit hole on more of that supposed security, and more of our freedoms lost.

Osama's real goal, but far better than he ever dreamed of.

Amazing what a few dozen foreign malcontents - with nothing more than a video camera - can do to a nation led and controlled by gutless cowards.

Will there ever be another attack as horrible as the 911 attack?

No.

Al-Qaeda knows that such an attack could easily result in the United States finally taking the gloves off and literally wiping them from the face of the earth.

So, expect a few more stumblebum amateurs, sacrificial lambs as it were, and the occasional new threat from Al-Qaeda's leaders.

That's all its taking to destroy us, along with the insane policies of a government that has no clue.

The End Of The Track Is Just Ahead

From Neithercorp Press - 07/18/2010,(thanks to DC):

"THE FINAL PHASE OF THE ECOMONIC MELTDOWN IS ABOUT TO COMMENCE".


In the financial life of every culture built upon faulty monetary policy, there are points at which the thin thread of economic faith; the thread that ties the entire failing system together, the thread made tangible by the hopes (and sometimes ignorance) of the general populace, finally snaps. From Ancient Rome, to Weimar Germany, to Argentina, to modern day America, no society fueled by unsustainable debt and fiat inflation can duck the ‘Fiscal Reaper’ for very long. The U.S. alone has survived since the early 1970’s (after Nixon removed the last vestiges of the gold standard) on nothing but questionable credit practices and baseless optimism, but there is a limit to the power of fantasy. This is a fact that most mainstream financial analysts and some in the American public refuse to grasp. Mere belief in the enduring nature of the marketplace is not enough; the fundamentals must also support that belief.

Today, we face an atmosphere in which the fundamentals are fiercely opposed to the publicly promoted perception of the economy, and it is moments in history like this that present a clear primer for total collapse. Financial disaster is bad enough when it is at least partially anticipated. When the masses are caught completely unaware and unprepared in the midst of misguided conviction, this leads to the worst kind of tragedy: the ironic and Shakespearian kind. To avoid this brand of tragedy is one of the primary reasons why we in the Liberty Movement do what we do. We may not be able to stop the current crisis from developing, but we can create awareness, and through this we can lessen the cultural shock, and thereby lessen the impact.

Mainstream economists crowed about the “invincible” rise of globalism and the unstoppable U.S. financial juggernaut for years while more level headed and intelligent men tried to warn the public of danger. The initial derivatives collapse in 2007 / 2008 should have put all of these pathetic establishment cheerleaders to shame, not to mention out of work. Yet three years later, amazingly, we are asked, even expected, to continue to look to such sad and useless people for predictions on market stability that always turn out absolutely inaccurate, and advice on savings and investment that they are not equipped to give.

I suppose we should not be surprised by the continued lifespan of MSM parrots and puppets. They may not be helpful to the average American, but they are very helpful to international banks and the globalist companies that pay their salaries. They distract and confuse us. They comfort when they should caution, and contradict when they should pay heed. Our financial house is burning from the bottom floor up, and they assure us that the warm orange glow is just the dawning of a new and beautiful day. We are told to “look to the future”, a return to normalcy is “just around the corner”. Never would they dare to weigh the cold hard factors of the present, or the ruse would be up. Whether they are aware of it or not the lies media pundits perpetuate set the stage for even greater upheaval, to the detriment of most, and the benefit of only a handful.

In this article, as we have in so many others, we will examine those lies, as well as the truths they are meant to hide. The most important truth of all being, that not only are we not in the middle of a recovery, but that the final phase of the economic meltdown is about to commence…

Go read the article if you believe we can learn from history. And then start getting prepared. This won't happen overnight. There is still some time left for the forewarned.

It's not an easy read, what with all the references you have to check out, but it's past time you took the time and effort to get informed.

Otherwise, just keep on keeping on with whatever it is you are doing, and when it all hits, don't whine, take it like a man.

Trying To Re-ignite Another War


North Korea inflamed tensions over the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship by threatening the United States and South Korea on Friday with a "physical response" if they carry out naval maneuvers this weekend. The U.S. refused to back down.

Makes sense.

It looks like the typical United States citizen is fed up with and just about finished supporting our military/industrial complex incursion into Iraq and Afghanistan, so it's time to put Korea on the front burner once again.

Over in that part of the world where women are supposed to be silent and go do the housework, Obama sends bigmouthed Hillary to go stomping through the tulips. She is tossing veiled threats around like candy, dishing out exactly the kind of insults those boys will start wars over.

One must wonder why we couldn't get it on with Pakistan, where Osama is being protected by the people and the government. Maybe it's because they have nukes... And no compunctions about using them.

So, I guess it's back to Korea.

Unlike Viet Nam, we haven't totally lost there yet.

If you think I'm kidding, you haven't been paying any attention at all.

$604,000 Water Bill

Us taxpayers forked over $604,000 for bottled water for those putzes in Congress last year. And that's not all, just read about some of the rest of the crap we pay for so these overpaid jackasses can stuff their mouths.

$604,000 for bottled water.

At the salaries these thieves are paid, let them buy their own freaking water, or drink the chemically-laden junk coming out of Washington's public water supply system.

And if they want a damned Quizno's sandwich(they ate over $160,000 worth of them on our tab), they can buy it themselves, or go hungry.

What a bunch of cheap, chiseling deadbeat crooks.

Hi Ho Silver, Or, A Word To The Wise

The Obama Administration's new requirement that demands a paper trail for any transaction over $600 has the nation up in arms over the massive paper load and extra time, manpower and expense these new rules are going to require.

Consider. Why in the world would the government have a need to know if you bought a $1,000 garden tractor, or a pair of earrimgs for your GF, or a new suit from The Men's Warehouse, or anything else you wanted sporting a price tag over $600?

The answer is, they don't. For the most part, the government doesn't give a damn what you spend your money on, so long as you keep spending.

Ahhh, but then there's gold. Real wealth. Real wealth that survives and maintains its value through thick or thin, through whatever financial disasters a stupidly run government can come up with.

So, this new law is actually intended to keep track of gold sales. Now, when anybody buys as little as one ounce of gold, there will be paperwork recording the transaction and sent to Uncle Sam.

Why?

Today we Americans are allowed to buy or sell our gold as we see fit, but there was a time when this was not so.

During the Great Depression era, Roosevelt - by presidential executive order - ordered all Americans to turn in their gold. If they did not, there was a fine of $10,000 and up to ten years in jail. Roosevelt had all manner of fine-sounding reasons for his criminal confiscation of private property, from it was an "emergency", to it's "good" for all of us.

It took another administration and another Congress to reverse this unconstitutional and criminal act.

Obama, or whoever takes his place, will do exactly the same thing Roosevelt did... Demand we turn in our gold - real wealth - and exchange it for whatever paper currency the Fed may be issuing at the time, paper backed by nothing and representing zero wealth, but exclusively controlled by institutions and groups mostly unknown by the average citizen. Roosevelt and the Progressives could not allow Americans to possess real wealth, such possession took the total control of finances away from a central authority and put it in the hands of individuals. You cannot redistribute what you cannot control.

Obama is going down the exact same path, a plan for total control outlined by Progressives in the 20's and 30's and being forced on us today. The Progressives long-held dream is total control of everything by a central authority... In this case, the federal government, which they presently control. Americans must not be allowed to have access to a source of real wealth, independent of - and untouchable by - any controlling agency or group.

So, when the president(Obama or the next one) issues an executive order demanding the turning in of all privately held gold, the government will already know where it all is.

That brings us to silver, the other precious metal. Historically, gold was worth around twenty times more than silver, meaning it took much less space to hold and store real wealth using gold, making gold the obvious choice for individuals wise enough to protect their assets from the obvious perils of paper currencies.

This very moment gold is trading for $1,203/oz. and silver for $18.28/oz., not the historical ratio of twenty-to-one, but closer to a ratio of sixty-six-to-one. Should silver return to it's historical ratio of value to gold, it will rise to a value of around $60.00/oz.

The true value of silver has been intentionally suppressed because of it's extreme value to all manner of industrial processes that need the metal, particularly in this electronic age. However, last year annual silver demand exceeded the annual supply for the first time in history. Up went the price... silver has recently doubled in value.

What could cause the value of silver to explode? The process is already happening. First, track gold transactions to know where it is being held, and then confiscate it by presidential executive order.

Can't happen? It already has happened... At the hands of the Progressive president Roosevelt, and now we have Progressive president Obama following in Roosevelt's footsteps.

This new requirement to create a paper trail of gold transactions will create a surge in the silver market when folks who have the desire to protect their assets with real wealth (and at the same time wish to remain under the governmental radar), switch to silver.

Watch the price of silver go up and up.

Once it becomes apparent that Obama is going to call in all privately held gold, the silver rush will begin in earnest.

Watch the price of silver - to coin a phrase - necessarily skyrocket.

I do not like this kind of hope.
I do not like it. nope, nope, nope!

Couldn't agreee more.

No More Air-Conditioning?

Can you believe it? Just read this crap:

Saying goodbye to A.C. means saying hello to the world. With more people spending more time outdoors -- particularly in the late afternoon and evening, when temperatures fall more quickly outside than they do inside -- neighborhoods see a boom in spontaneous summertime socializing.

Rather than cowering alone in chilly home-entertainment rooms, neighbors get to know one another. Because there are more people outside, streets in high-crime areas become safer. As a result of all this, a strange thing happens: Deaths from heat decline. Elderly people no longer die alone inside sweltering apartments, too afraid to venture outside for help and too isolated to be noticed. Instead, people look out for one another during heat waves, checking in on their most vulnerable neighbors.

You get a bunch of people sweating their balls off in a heat wave and what you get is not all that idiocy quoted above, but a bunch of people with very short tempers and short fuses ready to bring the hammer down at a seconds notice.

Gad... the stuff PollyAnna wrote above is as idealistic as one could ever imagine, but based on reality? Not a chance.

Come down here, you babbling idiot, where the temperature - right now - is 99 and the humidity is 85. Let's see how long you last outside communing with Mother Nature.

Golf Instead Of Chess

In golf, basically one hits a ball and then watches where it lands. The art of hitting that ball and making it go where you want has filled volumes, and the inability to do that skillfully has tormented millions since day one of the game.

On the opposite end of the scale is chess. Chess is definitely not a game where one takes a swing to see what happens, it's a game of strategy, intelligence and logic. In chess, moving a piece just because a clock is ticking - and then waiting for some sort of response - is a sure-fire way to lose.

That's why Obama plays golf. And that's why the Obama administration keeps stumbling into one minefield after another. Obama and the gaggle of Progressives surrounding him are running the government like it's just another golf game. They think the chess game is over.

The six-month moratorium of drilling in the gulf is just one example. The problems facing Obama and his cohorts because of this knee-jerk reaction continue to mount and take time away from other fires that need attention. Conventional thinking opines that had they thought it through, they would have realized a 30-day moratorium was sufficient for the stated purpose, to review the drilling procedures presently in place.

But... Conventional thinking cannot work here. Everything this administration does has dual purpose - The publicly stated one - and the true purpose... To advance the Progressive agenda, to "transform" America into something it was never intended to be.

The people surrounding Obama are not stupid. They may be dead wrong, but not stupid. The moratorium was not for review, but a maneuver to leverage the possibilities for passage of the upcoming Cap and Trade bill.

The reality that we will lose all the drilling rigs in the gulf today because of this moratorium is of no consequence to these people. It helps to serve their goal of green everything: Oil, gas and coal nothing.

Now comes the Attorney General(another empty suit) swinging at his ball, the lawsuits against Arizona. Had the administration looked just the teeniest bit ahead, they would have realized what a "toxic" hot potato this would become, as it has.

BOSTON — In a private meeting with White House officials this weekend, Democratic governors voiced deep anxiety about the Obama administration’s suit against Arizona’s new immigration law, worrying that it could cost a vulnerable Democratic Party in the fall elections.

Well, DUH.


“Universally the governors are saying, ‘We’ve got to talk about jobs,’ ” Gov. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee, a Democrat, said in an interview. “And all of a sudden we have immigration going on.”

He added, “It is such a toxic subject, such an important time for Democrats.”

Nice job there, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Keep your eye on the ball... not the chessboard.

God Save Us From These Fools

I can't stand any more:

Attorney General Eric Holder, just days after filing a federal lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law, on Sunday floated the possibility of filing another suit on racial profiling grounds.

Eric Holder has got to be way up there on the list of idiots who look intelligent, sound intelligent, wear nice clothes and all that civilized stuff... but are still complete idiots.

It's the same with Obama... A fine looking and fine sounding empty suit. His knee-jerk reaction to the first rupture in over 60,000 wells by stopping all the drilling in the golf has resulted in the first of many drilling rigs to sail off. This administrations total lack of foresight will result in us losing all those gulf drilling rigs, and like so many of our jobs that have sailed away, will never come back. The problems we will face due to oil stortages in our future because of this idiocy cannot be measured, but every predictor on the planet indicates nothing but bad, bad things.

WASHINGTON — Diamond Offshore announced Friday that its Ocean Endeavor drilling rig will leave the Gulf of Mexico and move to Egyptian waters immediately — making it the first to abandon the United States in the wake of the BP oil spill and a ban on deep-water drilling.

The stupidity of this administration has reached the point I can hardly stand to hear the next ulcer-generating stunt these supposedly intellectually enlightened buffoons come up with.

This "transformation of America" Obama has bragged so long and hard on is nothing less than a national trainwreck, but those intellectual idiots he has surrounded himself with - all those progressives - can't see the forest for the tress, can't tell between a hole in the ground and their rearends. They think they are taking over everything and creating a totally organized and structured fairyland world of peace, light and rainbows, when in fact they are destroying the very system that gave them the opportunity be be the blindered, witless Pollyannas they truly are.

As I've said before, I'm an agnostic, but asking whatever Gods there may be to save us may not be such a bad idea, since it seems we are not going to put a stop to these unbelievable clowns ourselves.
