Infrastructrure Theft On The Rise Nationwide

What's next?

Pennsylvania State Police said today they are looking for two men who used a bucket truck to steal a half-mile of copper wire strung on utility poles in Beaver County.

The suspects, identified as David C. MacClymont Jr., 43, of Seville, Fla., and Matthew L. Christine, 30, of Punxsutawney, used the truck to remove wire providing electric service along Crooks School Road near Route 151 in Hanover. The theft occurred between 3 and 4 p.m. on Dec. 18.

Let's see here, these two guys stole some copper wire maybe worth 500-600 dollars at the scrap yard. For that paltry sum, they have given up their jobs with the cable company and are now hunted fugitives that will have criminal records for the rest of their lives.

That's stupid.

I used to think this kind of theft was impossible, stealing wire from telephone and power lines, but not anymore. I used to think that scrap yards would not take the chance of buying these large quantities of obviously stolen materials, but it seems they have no problem doing exactly that.

However, idiots like these two stealing copper wire using a cable company truck and bucket brings up the possibility of an all-new problem... Using some company's heavy equipment to steal sections of railroad track on lightly used rail lines.

And then along comes the daily train.

And what happens to trains when some of their track is suddenly missing? (hint: See above photograph)

Remedial Math


The continuing sunset of civilization:

PINEVILLE, NC - Dozens of police officers had to break up fights and restore order at a local mall while shoppers were waiting for an overnight sale of a popular basketball shoe.

All over a pair of shoes - made in China - worth maybe fifteen bucks.

Grown women slugging it out over a pair of shoes. One must wonder what is going through their heads when they start acting like starving animals fighting over a dead carcass.

Barbarian may be too kind a word - At least the barbarians of old had some pretty hard and fast rules of conduct necessary for survival.

Of course, they didn't have an advanced and superior civilization trying to keep the pieces together for them.

When the civilized of this world finally throw in the towel and just walk away, these fine, upstanding examples of humanity are going to be in for a really rough time.

Mind Boggling

They have got to be pulling our leg:

Pentagon officials have told the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee a gallon of fuel costs the military about $400 by the time it arrives in the remote locations in Afghanistan where U.S. troops operate.

“It is a number that we were not aware of and it is worrisome,” Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), the chairman of the House Appropriations Defense panel, said in an interview with The Hill. “When I heard that figure from the Defense Department, we started looking into it.”

$400 a gallon for gas. If a Hummer has a twenty gallon fill up, it costs us $8,000.

Eight thousand dollars for a tank of gas for a vehicle that gets some of the worst mileage on earth.

Now I know that Afghanistan has cars and trucks. You can even see them on Google Earth. Try to tell me that the Afghans pay $400/gal for gas. They manage to get gas for their vehicles at a fiftieth(around $8/gal) of that cost.

I smell the disgusting aroma of the likes of Cheney and Haliburtion in all this.

We taxpayers are getting so screwed.

Eight freaking thousand dollars for a tank of gas. Someboby, actually several somebodies, needs to be horse whipped, hung, drawn and quartered, boiled in oil, shot into the sun, and then severly punished for this sort of thievery.

Not In My Navy

What a bummer.

When I was in the Navy, we used so sit around and BS about how great it would be to have females onboard our ship and who most likely would be able to score, and the best place on the ship for a bit of privacy and romancing.

Today's Navy... A whole different reality.

Now there's women onboard navy vessels, but so what?

That hot little WAVE you kept eyeballing turns out to be a lesbian.

Not only that, but they make a BIG production over your out-of-the-closet shipmate's first public lesbian kiss. That's an intentional slap in the face, an in-your-face "up yours" to all us normals.

I'm still pretty old school... I don't give a damn if some boys or girls have their wires crossed, but the sparkfest should remain very private.

Chicken Little Says The Sky Is Falling In Iowa

How they howl:

Conservatives and Republican elites in the state are divided over who to support for the GOP nomination, but they almost uniformly express concern over the prospect that Ron Paul and his army of activist supporters may capture the state’s 2012 nominating contest — an outcome many fear would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.

I find it hilarious how these "Conservative and Republican elites" are panicking at the possibility of losing control over the masses.

It's about time these "elites" got their butts kicked and dragged through the streets to the stocks. Under their leadership(I use the term loosely) the Republican party has become nothing more than a pale version of the Democrats, who in turn have become Progressives, or Socialists, or Marxists.

These elites would continue to have vast influence over the likes of Romney and Gingrich, better known as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, but would have none over Ron Paul.

I have no idea whatever if Ron Paul is nationally electable or not, but if the rest of America is as fed up with the Washington insiders and the Washington elites as the average Iowa citizen, I can understand why chicken little is panicking.

Since the choices offered by either party in the last few elections has been hardly more than a personality selection from the same bucket of totally controlled robots, I have often threatened to write in Mickey Mouse as my choice for president.

Maybe this election I actually will.

Paul and Bachmann Cross Swords

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential candidates Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann are trading barbs over Iran, with the Texas congressman saying the U.S. has no legitimate claim to block Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and Bachmann calling his position wildly dangerous.

Paul brought up several valid points in the firefight, such as the fact that we faced 30,000 Soviet missiles pointed at us during the cold war and we survived that fine, and that one potential Iranian bomb is just not a threat to us - or Israel.


Iran successfully builds one nuclear bomb. Will they - as Bachmann claims - attack Israel and the United States with it? That is just plain unthinking idiocy. Israel has over 300 nuclear devices to retaliate with and we have over 20,000. The idea that Iran will charge off into the sunset with one lousy UNTESTED bomb is foolish and unrealistic.

As Paul said... The area is already surrounded by nations with nuclear weapons: Russia, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan, North Korea. The idea that Iran will destroy Israel or shift the balance of power with one or two bombs is ludicrous. What they will accomplish with a bomb or two is keep America from attacking them. To many smaller nations, having nuclear capabilities is the only guarantee they can have that will keep the incredibly powerful American war machine at bay.

When North Korea got their weapon, we started leaving them alone, but look what happened to Lybia. We talked them out of a potential weapon... and then destroyed them.

The bottom line is that America is the one invading and/or occupying nation after nation, killing unarmed citizens by the tens of thousands, destroying their towns and infrastructure, sending in predator drones to bomb wedding parties and people we think may be unfriendly. And not just one strike like 911 was, we do this constantly, strike after strike, day after day. We have been doing this 24/7 for years and years.

It's no wonder they hate us so much that they will fly planes into our buildings. It's the only way they have to strike back against an enemy as powerful as the United States.

It is not Ron Paul's world view that is "wildly dangerous". The "wildly dangerous" people on that debate stage were those who hold the view that Iran is the real villain in all this and that another war will solve everything.

Like it or not, the world views America as the playground bully. And one fine day, they will have had enough.

And then - it will be our turn to pay the piper.

Voter Rights

United States Attorney General Eric Holder has come out forcefully on the issue of voter rights.

There is all manner of things off-base with this:

First: Holder has a proven reputation of being basically AWOL when it comes to issues that affect the nation, other than supporting issues near and dear to the man who appointed him to the office, Barack Hussein Obama.

Second: Holder, Being a minority, should do as Supreme Court Justices do and recuse himself on issues that have hot buttons all over them concerning minorities.

Holder himself has stated that he believes a Florida law that will stop early voting on Sundays is racially motivated because blacks like to get together and vote early - en mass - after Sunday church services, many of which looks to me not like gatherings to honor God, but rather hip-swinging and gyrating singalongs at which some permanently angry and upset "Reverend" insults and hammers America.

Please do recall Obama's long-time "Reverend" Jeremiah White, who screamed from his pulpit "Don't God bless America, God damn America" and other such flag-waving niceties for our current president and possible future dictator.

Thirdly: In coming out so forcefully against the Florida law in particular, he positively demonstrates that he is indeed playing the race card over this entire issue.

Holder does not even like the idea of having to show a photo ID when you go vote. However, he is fine with you having to show a photo ID when you want to go fly a plane somewhere. To me, the right to vote is a lot more important to the nation than you flying off to visit Auntie Em.

We have voter fraud right here in Terrel, Texas. How do I know?

Mt wife has been a registered Republican for the forty some years I have known her. Two years ago, we decided to use the absentee voting system presently in place, filled in the voter forms and mailed in our ballots.

Two weeks after the election, she received a notice that her ballot had been rejected because her signature didn't match the one on record.

OK. we were a bit cranked that her right to vote had been violated by some two-bit flunky in the local election office, but that's not the point.

Ever since that time, she has been receiving mail, promotions and requests for money from the DEMOCRATIC party and Obama's people.

Our conclusion: Once her ballot was rejected, somebody at the local election office then used her name and address to vote for the democratic ticket, automatically putting her name of the democratic voter list, triggering all these mail responses she is getting.

Some folks will claim "coincidence" to which I claim "bullshit". Someone, or a group of someones at our local election headquarters was rejecting mail-in ballots and then using the rejected voters names to go vote with.

We will never vote absentee again, guaranteed, and United States Attorney General Eric Holder getting all hot under the collar over voting rights is a joke.

For that matter, so is Holder, as are the Terrell, Texas elections.

There are a whole lot of folks that need to start marking the calendars on their prison cell wall, starting with a few right here where I live.

Rick Santorum: America Second

Rick Santorum, a Republican candidate for the United States presidency, stated to a WND reporter:
The first priority of a candidate for president and president of the U.S. is to be sided with the state of Israel, and I would not be making a statement of that nature that would clearly cause a stir in the Middle East without first working with our allies to determine whether this was something that was helpful or not.
In my view, that by itself should prevent Santorum from holding any public office in the federal government.

For any national office candidate to make the statement that a State created under a dark cloud of illegality by the United Nations and a place run by a religious dictatorship has first priority above the survival and welfare of United States of America is simply unacceptable.

As a non-Jewish American, I naturally hold different views on the necessity of Israel's survival. I consider the survival of America to be far more important than the survival of this modern-day Israel, a place not created by god as so many would love to have us believe, but created by a United Nations resolution against the fierce objections of the large majority of natives already living on the land in question.

If you are capable of ignoring the religious dogma surrounding this issue, you will realize that what was done by the U.N. boggles the mind with it's criminality, and it is no wonder that the Arabs have fought this occupation since it's inception.

I require a president and a Congress that places America and it's people above any other State, nation or peoples, and any State or nation that - through it's conduct - causes harm to America be considered as unfriendly and suspect, and more reasonably... as an enemy.

By it's very existence, modern-day Israel has caused the United States great harm and loss. By supporting this highly contested U. N. created State, the United States has caused the entire Muslim civilization to declare it as an enemy, and every action we have been forced to take in the Middle East, in Iraq, in Iran, in Afghanistan is a consequence of this support.

We have invested a vast amount of our national treasure and thousands of American lives supporting this small State, for no other reason than to satisfy the wants and demands of a religious minority within our borders.

American Christians seem to completely ignore the fact that the Jews do not consider Jesus as anything other than just another minor prophet, definitely not the son of God... or anything resembling that. American Christians seem to be completely unaware that the Jews consider their entire religion to be a false belief, and by ignoring those two little facts, Christians have allowed themselves to support - at great cost - a small group of people who ridicule and despise them and their savior.

Christians have somehow accepted the idea that the location of all this, an unproductive stretch of desert and a few old ruins are the truly important issues in this conflict. They are not. The true issue is who is correct about Jesus.

If Rick Santorum Believes it is the duty of the president of the United states to consider Israel first and foremost in any decision... Well, for me, he's toast.

The Jews claim they are "God's Chosen People". OK, let them demonstrate it.

If they are correct, God will be all the support they will ever need. American Christians can withdraw and walk away without any guilt, satisfied with the understanding that final result will be determined not by group of Jews in Congress and Christians incapable of critical thought, but by God.

No Surprise Here

Predictable as sunrise:
Iran appears to be in possession of one of America's most sophisticated weapons, a super-secret spy plane whose stealth technology is the same as the drone used to monitor the compound during the raid that killed Usama bin Laden, U.S. military sources told Fox News on Monday.

Military sources confirmed that the Iranians have the RQ-170 drone, which is so advanced that the U.S. Air Force has not distributed even a photo of it. However, they did not say that the Iranians shot down the spy plane, as was reported by Iran's official IRNA news agency.

OK, boys and girls, anyone who believed that we would never lose one of our super-secret spy drones over enemy territory, raise your hand. Whether the loss was due to mechanical failure, enemy military activity or a result of leaked information on how to capture an airborne drone matters not... the chances of this happening was 100%, and so it has.

The Iranians claim they "shot it down" while at the same time telling us it was successfully landed with minimal damage. If it was successfully landed, that means they landed it. If they landed it, that means they had full control of it. If they had full control of it, that means our drone operations have been totally compromised.

Anyone who believes that this war prize will not be sold to or given access to the Russians or the Chinese - probably both - go to the end of the line.

It would be no surprise to me if the Iranians had taken control of this drone away from it's American handlers. The knowledge needed and the ability required to takeover a drone in flight would not be all that difficult to a nation or group with sufficient money and intent.

And lord knows there's enough people who have access to the drone piloting and control programs that would sell the knowledge to the highest bidder. Some might give the info away just for political purposes.

Remember Julius and Ethyl Rosenburg... They gave the Russians our atomic bomb secrets for next to nothing. And even if it is politically incorrect to mention it - America does have Arabs, Muslims and Semites of all stripes in every nook and cranny of our military and our government.

Beyond Insane

Yessir... Those ironclad union contracts are really something.

This woman Dr. Arlene Ackerman(below) - with her union-created contract and a worthless college degree - has bilked Philadelphia taxpayers out of $905,000, and now wants more.

Former Philadelphia schools superintendent Arlene Ackerman, who was given a nearly $1-million buyout earlier this year, has now applied for unemployment.

This comes after taxpayers funded a $905,000 buyout when she was shown the door in August.

The furor over Ackerman’s leadership came to a head earlier this year when it was suddenly revealed that the school district faced a deficit of more than $620 million. Some of those involved in those negotiations to help the district deal with this massive deficit became unhappy with Ackerman’s leadership style, including top city officials.

An effort arose to see that she would depart much sooner than at the conclusion of her current contract, which runs through 2014.

How incredibly incompetent must one be that reasonable people are willing to pay a million dollars to shove you out the door?

What the Philadelphia taxpayers should do is contact every school district on the planet and give them this woman's photograph and record, tell them of the shady no-bid contracts she passed out to minority businesses, how she ran up a 600-million-dollar deficit, and how she snookered them into thinking she was actually a smart and intelligent leader, what with the PHD and all.

Philadelphians should make certain this despicable fraud never finds a job in any other school district anywhere... ever. If she is a smart as she pretends, that $905,000 should last her a lifetime.

There's a lesson here for everybody... Just because someone waves around a PHD does not mean they have anything resembling brains or intelligence. It just means that they warmed a seat in some college for a few years.

I suspect that Philadelphia is not finished with this woman. They are looking into that 600-million-dollar deficit and I'll bet they'll find this woman has raked school district cash in more than meets the eye.

I suspect one other thing: That a lot of Philadelphia taxpayers are mad as hell that the powers-that-be in their school district paid this woman a single damned dime.

Cut Away Dudes

From the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A breakdown in high-stakes budget talks in Congress could threaten plans for a missile defense shield in Europe.

While it is not known what military spending would be cut, an expensive program aimed primarily at defending Europe is unlikely to be spared.

Let me clear the air a bit... Europe can defend itself - or not - I do not care.

Why America spends even one thin dime defending a Europe full of citizens that scorn and despise us is beyond my ability to rationalize. If they cannot defend themselves, they deserve to be conquered. If the European Nations wish to be flushed down the sewer pipes of history because they cannot defend themselves from threats like the present assault on them from the Hague or the current Muslim invasion, I'll be glad to stand by and watch.

Speaking of cutting defense spending, let's start with the the V-22 Osprey.

Touted by the military/industrial people as the best of a helicopter and an airplane combined into one, it is not. It is less effective as a helicopter and cannot equal or better the performance of the ones we now have in inventory either as a weapons platform or a troop carrier. And as a troop hauling aircraft? It's a joke.

We are told that it combines the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft. What nonsense. It's only advantage over a conventional helicopter is it goes perhaps 50MPH faster - far slower than any turboporp aircraft - and for that, we have squandered billions.

It is - after all these years - still a dangerous and highly unstable craft that has killed over 30 people during its decades-long development period, and is still not reliable enough to join other aircraft in our operational inventory. Downtime and maintenance on this beast is phenomenal, far above any other aircraft or helicopter of similar capability.

It has cost billions of taxpayer dollars, the return on which has been effectively zero.

What it has done is prove that you can make a brick fly if you spend enough money and have an unlimited amount of time to make it so. That is why it fascinates and is supported by so many of our air enthusiasts... the astounding fact that it actually gets off the ground. If the computers on this thing fail, everyone on board has no chance. There is not a pilot on the planet that can keep this thing from crashing without all it's onboard computers.

This is just one program that could be cut with no losses whatever, except for the Bell-Boeing partnership created in 1986 to develop this contraption at an original estimated cost of $1.714 billion, a cost long since doubled and tripled and quadrupled - with no end in sight.

Congress had the opportunity to cancel this money pit in 1989, but the usual arm-twisting and lobbying and campaign donations by the Military/industrial complex saved this project from it's proper fate, the trash can.

The money spent on this boondoggle is not money spent for our national defense. There is a huge difference between money spent on national defense and the money squandered on pipedreams like this thing.

The V-22 is just for starters. There are dozens of programs just like it. The number of jobs lost? Less than a weeks worth of first-time unemployment claims we see week after week after week.

And as for Europes missile defence system? Let them build their own.

Gad, I Hope This Is Fake....

The photo is titled "Obama 1977".

This is beyond my ability to accept as real. At least today it is.

However, tomorrow is another day.

It says "The Daily Squib" near the bottom of his jewel. I don't know who or what the Daily Squib is, and I don't want to find out this soon after eating.

If You Pay Taxes...

... On your next income tax statement where it asks "List all dependents", try lsitng a few of the ones below(It's just a starter list):

42 million unemployable leeches on food stamps:
20 million illegal aliens:
5 million unwed mothers:
3 million crack heads:
2 million criminals in over 243 prisons:
535 self-serving bought-out jackasses in the U.S. House and Senate:
9 out-of-touch oooh-so-smart elitists on the U.S. supreme court:


A White House full of 60's style tree-hugging, dope-loving hippies without a clue.

Yes, they are all - everyone of them - dependent on you the taxpayer.

If you have any kids, you can add them also, just for yuks.

Most of the numbers are estimates. Do like the government does... make up your own.

Sovereignty On The Line?

I have read World Net Daily for several years, primarily to keep up with the latest in propaganda from one side of the combatants in this endless Middle East war. There have been times when that has been – to say the least – difficult.

Aaron Klein, in a recent article in WND, comments about how the Palestinian terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in Lebanon are preparing to retaliate “in the case of Israeli strikes against Tehran's nuclear sites”.

Well, that's just another one of those expected one-sided daily comments in an ongoing war.

However, tucked away in the article is a statement:

“Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as cited by President Obama, is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of "war crimes," "genocide," "crimes against humanity" or "ethnic cleansing."

Now that is worth taking note of.

Based on that little jewel, it would appear that Israel could have its sovereignty revoked by the UN and even the United States if it attacks Iran’s nuclear facilities in a preemptive strike - based on a belief that Iran will someday attack Israel. Such an action would be a clear-cut case of a war crime conducted by one sovereign state against another - if they were at peace - which they are not.

These people are at war, and have been for decades. What one side does. or threatens to do to the other is pretty much "business as usual" with these combatants. Both side are patently guilty of "war crimes," "genocide," "crimes against humanity" and "ethnic cleansing," so to hear another one of these almost daily threats of annihilation, or terrible retaliation, or the interference and/or support of either sides god in this war… is about as usual as sunrise.

What we Americans should be doing in all this is take George Washington’s advice to avoid foreign intrigues and conflicts. Because – and it’s entirely possible with today’s United Nations and New World Order – our unabashed support for Israel’s aggressions could put our own sovereignty at risk. The UN and the NWO at the Hague wouldn't try to charge us with "war crimes", they would more likely try to use the "crimes against humanity" bit to strip us of our rights as a sovereign nation.

And you just know that Obama would go along with it.

To repeat the obvious: These people are at war, have been for centuries, and will be until one side reduces the other to the point they can no longer influence outcomes. The Arabs had successfully done that and kept the Jews subdued until the creation of the United States, an event that gave the Jews the opportunity to regroup, grow in power, wealth and influence, then to finally force themselves on the world as a reborn state, not one recreated by their god, but one created by the United Nations.

Revocation of Israel's sovereignty. It is entirely feasible, since it is in fact the UN that created today’s Jewish state in the first place. Whether or not such an action would be taken by the UN(possible) and the US(doubtful), and even if Israel accepted such a revocation of its sovereignty(no chance in hell), the fact that the Arabs are preparing for a counter strike against another Israeli preemptive strike, is entirely logical.

So what else is new here?

The idea that the UN, acting in concert with the NWO, may soon try to take our national sovereignty away.

There has to be a reason why Obama came up with his “Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as a set of principles" he supports and has submitted to the UN.

If they are itching for a showdown,that would positively guarantee one.

YOU Fill In The Blanks

HR8791… January 5, 2009

Here is a transcript for your benefit of the reading of HR8791 as shown on C-SPAN:

“Congress shall now vote for approval of HR8791 the Homeland terrorism preparedness bill…

Said bill requests emergency response funding up to and including… um I’m sorry this section is CLASSIFIED dollars to prepare for a national level terrorist attack and or attack from CLASSIFIED. Funding for first responder personnel and vehicles would be doubled in the event if said attack leads to more then 80% of national population being effected by a CLASSIFIED. This funding shall commence in conjunction with the first attack on CLASSIFIED or the first large scale out break of CLASSIFIED, dependant on which comes first. Civilian and military units shall be trained in containment and combat of CLASSIFIED, including irradiated CLASSIFIED, with possibility of CLASSIFIED, airborne CLASSIFIED, flesh eating CLASSIFIED, and or all of the above in such event as CLASSIFIED spewing CLASSIFIED escape, are release or otherwise become uncontrollable. Air Force units may also be directed to combat said CLASSIFIED, do to their enormous size and other worldly strengths. Should event occur in urban areas, JESUS... umm that's CLASSIFIED far surpassing our darkest nightmares, should casualties exceed CLASSIFIED, body disposal actions shall be halted and associated resources shall be reallocated to CLASSIFIED underground CLASSIFIED protected birthing centers. A new bill of rights shall be drafted and approved by CLASSIFIED .

Having now reviewed the bill I ask you now to Please cast your vote.”


What the hell are those lunatics in Washington up to now?

"... containment and combat of CLASSIFIED, including irradiated CLASSIFIED, with the possibility of CLASSIFIED, airborne CLASSIFIED, flesh eating CLASSIFIED, and or all of the above in such event as CLASSIFIED spewing CLASSIFIED escape, are release(d) or otherwise become uncontrollable..."

Good lord, he talks of preventing available resources to bury the dead and sending them to CLASSIFIED underground CLASSIFIED birthing shelters. Perhaps "birthing" is actually "berthing". The difference is enormous.

Whatever they think it is that's about to happen, those Washington SOB's have their own asses covered.

Sleep well, citizen, your government has it all under control.

And the Air Force also... Those bombs that just might start falling all around you might be some of the few remaining products manufactured in the good old USA.

And a new Bill of Rights. It won't affect you tho, as your bombed out corpse rots away in some annihilated urban area.

Awareness - Confrontation - Escalation

The "Occupy Someplace" people are - in my view - an interesting study in conflicting ideas and concepts. Mostly children of the boomer generation, they are the incredibly privileged but lazy, self-absorbed products of a lifestyle and education system that taught them nothing but pipe dreams and foolishness. The one thing they are very good at is following the beck and call of any self-anointed "leader" that claims to be anti-Capitalist, or anti-family, or anti-parent, or even anti-Christ.

Michael Moore is a typical example of one of their "leaders". Moore is a multi-millionaire, got there by being a greedy capitalist, but claims to be one of the 99% being dumped on by the Powers That Be. The Occupy crowd mentality buys into his fork-tongued tripe.


Because they are dumb, but not stupid. They are dumb because they have learned nothing from their schooling(who could with today's education system?), have no concept of critical thinking, never look ahead for potential and unexpected bad consequences, know little or nothing of the world, it's history and it's people. They represent a large group to whom logic is as alien as a Martian landscape.

But they are not stupid. They have brains that have - up to now - been used mostly as sponges for Progressive/Socialist/Marxist idiocy. But if you have a brain, sooner or later, reality starts to seep in.

That's whats happening to the Occupy crowd. They have been saturated their entire lives with the Progressive/Socialist/Marxist siren songs of the far left in school and college, bombarded by brainless pap on TV and inundated by base and crude filth from Hollywood.

These products of intense and lifelong brainwashing are finally sensing that something is very wrong. They are starting to understand that Wall Street and the Banks are not their friends, but like Kahn in Star Trek, keep missing the target.

It's not the institutions of Wall Street or the banks that are evil, it is the people that control them that are evil. They still haven't connected the dots between Congress and the cretins that are destroying America's economy and future. Congress, Wall Street and our banking system are all totally controlled by a small minority of amoral and godless thieves, pillagers and looters. They are the real targets.

Even Kahn in the above mentioned Star trek understood that it was Kirk - not the ship he commanded - that was his enemy.

One can hope that the Occupy crowd will eventually see through the fog they have existed in their entire lives.

When - and if - they do, remember they are the ones amongst us to whom violent protest and confrontation is an acceptable strategy. We may soon see our government facing it's citizens with tanks and advanced weaponry of all sorts, and don't think for an instant that the military will turn against it's masters. Our military will imprison and kill their fellow Americans as readily as they have been imprisoning and killing civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are already trained for it.

And our police? Their growth of power is frightening. There are many, many of them who would relish the idea of utilizing their SWAT training and tactics on innocent civilians trying to exercise their rights to assemble and speak freely.

If things do escalate, it may get very, very nasty.

The neocon puppets on FOX news just announced that Bank of America has decided to "forego their debit card fees"...

... for customers with an average balance of $20,000 or more on a monthly basis..

Twenty thousand dollars or more. Well, that leaves me out, and just about everybody else in America. You know, the 99% those Wall Street protesters claim to be.

So, if you are a part of the 1% (with more than $20,000 in the bank all the time) BOA will not charge you a debit card fee.

In other words, the bankers are giving themselves and their Wall Street buddies a free ride.

And you? Screw you.

1 Israeli = 1,027 Palestinians

Israeli Soldier, 477 Palestinians Freed in Prisoner Swap

There will be another 550 jailed Palestinian to be freed next month under the deal between Israel and Hamas.

We are told that Sgt Shalit, 25, was seized in 2006 by Hamas militants who tunnelled into Israel.

How are we supposed to interpret all this?

Right off, the claim that Hamas "Tunnelled" into Israel sounds more like another Israeli attempt to gloss over anything that might reflect on them poorly. The youngish Sgt. Shalit was most likely snatched when a few Hamas snuck across a poorly guarded section of the border and grabbed the first unaware Jew in sight, that being the unfortunate Sargent, apparently doing something other than guarding his section of the border. There were reports originally(but quickly squelched) that supported this view.

Here are a few possibilities:

-1)That this soldier is so valuable to the Israeli war effort that they would release over a thousand of the enemy to get him back?

-2)That the Jews just got tired of supporting 1,027 Palestinians in their jails?

-3) That the Jews think so little of a Palestinian Arab that a thousand of them are worth less than one Israeli soldier?

-4)That this prisoner swap is a sign that peace is about to bloom in the holy land?

-5)That the Jews have now become such world-class humanitarians that they will use any excuse to free over a thousand erroneously jailed Arabs?

Take your pick.

But, regardless of your choice, a thousand-to-one ratio makes no sense. The Jews may be happy to get their soldier back, but giving up over a thousand prisoners - most of which by now will gladly slit any Jewish throat they can get their hands on - seems a bit foolish and short-sighted.

Political pressure can cause governments to do some really, truly stupid things. This prisoner swap shows that the Israeli government is not immune to this flaw.

They keep this sort of thing up and next thing you know, they'll be competing with the United States Federal government for the title of "Stupidest government on the planet".

Time will tell.

You gotta Be Kidding!

Beyond mind-boggling:

A leading US lawmaker who fears budget cuts could delay modernizing the US nuclear arsenal voiced concern Friday about an extensive tunnel complex designed to house Chinese nuclear missiles.
"This network of tunnels could be in excess of 5,000 kilometers (3,110 miles), and is used to transport nuclear weapons and forces," said Michael Turner, who chairs a House Armed Services Committee panel focusing on strategic weapons and other security programs.

"As we strive to make our nuclear forces more transparent, China is building this underground tunnel system to make its nuclear forces even more opaque," he added, citing an unclassified Department of Defense report.

To hell with their 5,000 kilometers of tunnel. They will end up growing mushrooms in them because all their cities, their ports and industrial centers are wide-open sitting ducks, just like ours are.

What blew me away is what this "leading US lawmaker" said:

As we strive to make our nuclear forces more transparent, China is building this underground tunnel system to make its nuclear forces even more opaque.


We are striving to make our nuclear forces MORE TRANSPARENT?

No wonder we are in such a mess! Total idiots like this moron are in charge. He's even chairs a House Armed Services Committee panel focusing on strategic weapons and other security programs.

Good Godamighty! Get rid of this jackass before he gives the Russians, the Chinese, the North Koreans, and everybody else GPS co-ordinates for every nuclear weapon he have!

You just can't make up this stuff up. Any action writer who tried to sell a story with a plot line like this would be laughed out of town.

Insane. Totally, completely, round-the-bend insane.

The Space Shuttle - Afterthoughts

I consider the United States space shuttle as a high water mark for American genius, technology and innovation.

From Wikapedia:
The Space Shuttle was a manned orbital rocket and spacecraft system operated by NASA on 135 missions from 1981 to 2011. The system combined rocket launch, orbital spacecraft, and re-entry spaceplane with modular add-ons. Major missions included launching numerous satellites and interplanetary probes, conducting space science experiments, and the servicing and construction of space stations.

Major components included the orbiters, recoverable boosters, external tanks, payloads, and supporting infrastructure — orchestrated by thousands of people on the ground and crewed by an elite cadre of astronauts.
Perhaps a bit too elite, but that's for another story.

Some say that Apple Computer products such as the I-phone and the I-pad should be in that spot, but these devices were built in China, not America, giving China's manufacturing empire the edge in technology and innovation.

Wernher Von Braun (shown below standing near the 1st stage rocket engines of the Apollo) was a major force behind our successful moon landings. He was the primary designer of the Apollo series rockets, machines that today most people have no concept of their size and complexity, and how advanced they were for the day.

Wernher Von Braun's Apollo rockets, fantastic pieces of machinery for their time, could be compared - as exploratory vehicles - to the wagon trains of the old west, while the shuttle could be compared to the steam locomotives being used when the continental railroad was completed. Unfortunately, our space program never got its version of the railroads' modern diesel locomotives. NASA has been stuck with the equivalent of the old steam locomotive(good as it was) of yesteryear.

There are many advances in technology that far exceed the technology used in the shuttle. As an example, the shuttle never had an on-board computer that could begin to compare to one of today's desktop models. That- by itself - points out the major flaw in the space shuttle's design: It's extreme inability to be upgraded quickly and inexpensively as technology marched ahead.

But that was anticipated and not considered a stumbling block to our space effort. Newer and more technologically advanced equipment would be designed, manufactured and brought on line as a matter of course.

Problem is... That never happened. There are two basic causes behind our failure to advance. True, all manner of advanced designs Came down the pike. Unfortunately, they all showed the same tendency of American engineers to over-design absolutely everything, to make everything the incredibly expensive Lamborghini version instead of the affordable Chevy pick-up truck version. As a nation, we just couldn't afford to keep buying more Lamborghini's.

That's reason one.

Reason two is generally unmentionable and stirs up hurricanes of of anger and pushback when mentioned, but still remains a fact.

Women. Women wanted to get involved in the space program. And with the feminist movement happening all across in America at the time, they got a real stranglehold on NASA. Women - by their very nature - are far more safety conscious than men. Men are the risk takers, women are not, and when they gained position and influence in NASA, safety - above all else - became the number one concern.

The space shuttle was originally designed for a two-week turnaround between flights, but that's before the safety experts got involved. Any failure, or potential failure, had to be engineered out of the system. As excessively heightened safety concerns became more and more onerous, delays and cancellations became the order of the day. Turn around times stretched from weeks to months... And the original advantages of the shuttle vanished in the mountains of paperwork, rework, and makework. Costs soared. That's when the shuttle program ground to an almost dead stop.

Consider the two-year delay created when the Challenger exploded. It exploded because an O-ring on one of the booster rocket sections failed and allowed a jet of flame to penetrate the main fuel tank. Why did it fail? Because NASA was pressured to launch in unacceptable weather conditions, while ice sickles were still hanging off the shuttle and the launch structure. The O-rings were frozen solid. Frozen O-rings cannot do their job, so we lost the shuttle.

Space Shuttle Challenger Exploding

Rather than admit that frozen O-rings were the cause, NASA re-designed the booster O-ring joints to a three-O-ring configuration that was far harder to install without damage(nicking the O-ring became a common cause for additional delay), and took lots more time to assemble. The original 2 O-ring design was fine and always worked as expected. But a two-year delay in the shuttle program and a more failure prone O-ring joint was the result of NASA's inability to stand up to the national pressure to get the "Teacher-in space" boondoggle off the ground. After all, there were thousands of little kiddies in school rooms all across America glued to their TV's, waiting to see the "Teacher In Space" give her first lessons from orbit.

The result? Thousands of little kiddies that grew up believing that the manned space program should be cancelled... Way too dangerous.

How did the second shuttle get destroyed? A large piece of insulating foam detached from the main fuel tank and hit the shuttle wing's leading edge, punching a hole in it, sealing the shuttle's fate. Why did a big chunk of insulating foam fall off? Because some braindead nitwit demanded that the glue used to attach the foam be replaced with a more "environmentally friendly" glue. The glue originally used was deemed to be environmentally hazardous. Problem was, the new glue had less "holding power" than the old glue. Result? A big chunk of insulation fell off.

One must assume that an exploding shuttle smashing into the ground over a three state area had been considered as the lesser of two environmental hazards. Nope... No one ever thought far enough ahead to see the real danger of using an inferior glue.

Columbia returns to earth in pieces because of inferior glue

Safety. Must have more safety. there must be no risk involved, no one can ever ever die. This mantra permeated the entire manned space effort and - of course - greatly helped to doom it.

The Apollo and the original shuttle program represented a NASA that was squarely focused on it's mission, willing to accept reasonable levels of risk to get the job done, and as a result, got the job done. We lost three astronauts in the Apollo 1 Capsule fire because a pure oxygen environment - although risky - became a disaster.

Did you ever hear that a metal hand tool - left by a careless assembly worker - in the wiring harness of the capsule may have caused an electrical short, creating a spark, and was the probable cause of the fire?

We lost two shuttles and their crews to stupidity and Political Correctness. That in turn - cost us the entire program.

The surviving shuttles are in museums across America, mute monuments to a fantastic program that was destroyed by second-string incompetents and sheer stupidity.

3 crew members lost due to a careless worker.
7 crew members lost to a bad decision.
7 crew members lost because of lousy glue.

Goes to show you just can't engineer out all the risks, no matter how much time and money you spend.

We Americans have spent a lot - billions - of national treasure on our space effort... Only to see it end up sending those "elite" astronauts to space in the $60 million seats of a Russian rocket.

The Drums Of War... They Sound Again... At FOX

This from FOX News:

U.S. lawmakers call alleged Iranian-backed plot to kill Saudi diplomat an 'act of war' and State Department issues travel warning for Americans to watch for attacks connected with plot as tensions flare between Washington and Tehran.

The FOX news team, all of them, are vigorously stirring the pot for another middle East war, this time with Iran.

In a campaign quite similar to their Weapons of Mass Destruction mantra that helped Bush to attack Iraq, they are beating the drums over what they call "Alleged" ties of a terror plot and the Iranian government in what they are calling "an act or WAR".

That's pretty damned irresponsible, even for FOX news.

Bleach Brawl At Wal-Mart

Two females got into a brawl Saturday at a Wal-Mart in Baltimore, sending 18 people to the hospital because of the toxic fumes created when the bleach and other chemicals they were tossing at each other got mixed in the fray.

The original news releases made no mention of the two females backgrounds, etc., but I made a bet with myself that they were members of a minority.

Sure enough, they are.

A Saturday morning of shopping turned into an emergency hazmat situation at a Baltimore Walmart where two patrons threw bleach and disinfectant at one another, officials said.

Baltimore County Police responded to a call at about 10:48 a.m. Saturday and found two women fighting inside the store.

The bleach and disinfectant created toxic fumes, forcing the immediate evacuation of the entire Arbutus store, officials told ABC News affiliate ABC 2. It closed for several hours.

Fire, EMS and hazardous materials units were dispatched to the scene, as well as 10 medics.

The instigator is shown below:

This sterling example of civilized behavior at its best is Theresa Monique Jefferson, 33.

Cause of the fight? Jefferson is the unwed mother of her ex-boyfriends bastard baby, and the boyfriend is presently dating the other girl involved, no doubt working on expanding his fatherless family.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Wasn't it Reagan that talked of a "shining city on the hill"? And didn't Bush Sr. talk about his "thousand points of light"? All I am seeing is a growing pit with civilization sinking into it and the expanding darkness, and those thousand points of light? Gun flashes and bonfires of burning cities.

I see no escape from the barbarianism engulfing our nation. It seems it will have to run its course, whatever the cost.

Being prepared - being ready for the expected worst - may not be enough at the end.

It's like Japans nuclear reactors. They had thirty-foot-high walls around them to protect them for the ocean. But the tsunami was higher.

Heroes, Past And Present

Superman Yesterday... Turdman Today

There are disgusting scenes that show the Occupy Wall Street protesters creating and living in unsanitary and filthy conditions.

Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.

No doubt he has acquaintances that think his conduct is top drawer, cool, hip, really rad. Hey, That's OK, it's a free country, but the rest of us - those of us with a bit of civilized conduct still guiding our public activities - Are free to escort him and his pals into the nearest sewer where they can crap away to their hearts content.

They claim to be protesting the thieves and crooks on Wall Street. They say they are sick and tired of being plundered by corrupt government and the money handlers in the big banks and the Fed. I can certainly agree with all of them on that.


They are also demanding debt forgiveness, free college, free food, free housing. Did I miss anything? Oh yes, free sex. 24/7 free sex.

OK, they can file bankruptcy(that's debt forgiveness), and then go find free housing and free food at the city dump. They can burrow into the mountains of trash and create really nifty little burrows to play house in. They can: -1) compete with the seagulls for food, or: -2) eat the seagulls. Or - as mentioned above - they can go live in the sewers, where another pile of crap wouldn't even be noticed.

But it's doubtful... guys like the one in the photo too far gone to be salvageable - just to damned ignorant to ever be anything but what he is... A stupid fool, getting his 15 minutes of fame by publicly crapping on a police car.

Pity any non-thinking simpleton that admires this guy.

Oh yes...

The free sex? Hardly worth mentioning. America has millions of witless youngish females with incredibly high opinions of themselves(and incredibly empty heads), who will spread wide at the drop of a pin. Get pregnant? No prob, there's pills for that. And coat hangers. Get VD? No prob, there's pills for that. Get used up and thrown away? Maybe Big Sis is working on a pill for that also.

Let Me Count The Ways...

Read the below closely, it's a sympathy-grabbing lament from a 33 year-old female that followed the Yellow Brick Road and now is disappointed that the mighty Oz isn't jumping in to save her:

She has two degrees. She fails to mention in what. But I'll bet serious money neither one is a degree that is useful in today's business climate.

She says she has had no income for two years. What she fails to mention is that a job at Wal-Mart or McDonald's - however temporary - is beneath her. She also fails to mention that she has - no doubt - been collecting unemployment, and can use the Medicaid program and the local emergency rooms for her health concerns, which at 33, are minimal.

She claims she is "no slacker". Congratulations. You go girl. But if you've been hard at work pushing a car with no engine down the road believing you would get to ride later, and now you have discovered all your sweat equity has amounted to zero? Tough. Bad choices. Happens to the best of us.

She says she has to walk now to the library every day to look for work. The library? That should be a clue as to what her two degrees are in. How about the want ads?(no way... those jobs are for the bottom feeders)

33 years old... and a poster child for how to make all the wrong choices following the feminist dream.

Now she wants to blame Wall Street for her bad luck, a direct result of her personal choices.(the Occupy Wall street.Org at the bottom)

Go flip hamburgers. Or stock shelves. There are plenty of jobs out there that will help pay the bills, even if you may have to occasionally co-mingle with the unwashed in flyover country. Get two jobs if you must. Learn to speak Spanish, so you can compete with those 12-20 million Mexican Nationals that have invaded the United States.

And then learn to live with what those jobs pay.

That's what the rest of us are doing.

Worse Than Family Ties - Much Worse

New photographs obtained exclusively by reveal that Barack Obama appeared and marched with members of the New Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Alabama in March 2007.

Well, well, well. Looks like the cat is out of the bag. It also looks like we actually have an enemy of the State as president.

The photographs, captured from a Flickr photo-sharing account before it was scrubbed, are the latest evidence of the mainstream media’s failure to examine Obama’s extremist ties and radical roots.

"Extremist ties and radical roots". Just like every Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Communist traitor he has surrounded himself with in the White House.

If the tea party keeps the House and wins the Senate, there will be a slew of rats hung up by their ears that just might face the firing squad.

Never forget what Bernadine Dorhn (Bill Ayers wife) said in an interview:

I asked, "Well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" And the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."

Dohrn and Ayers are close friends of Barack Obama.
Read the above highlighted interview. It will show you what those "friends" of Obama really are...beasts. Even the Nazi plans to handle their "Jewish problem" did not include the slaughter of 25 million people, whose only crime would be that they disagreed with the political views of these animals.

Dorhn, Ayers, Pliven and others of their ilk are all examples of the modern Socialist. And remember, NAZI stood for National Socialist Party. The term Nazi is German and stems from "Nationalsozialist", in case you are wondering how the "Z" got in there.

It's getting down to the choice of them or us. Because they will sure as hell kill us if we let them.

Family Ties

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – President Barack Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama, is expected to appear in a Massachusetts court on a drunken driving charge.
Onyango blew a 0.14 on his blood-alcohol breath test, so - of course - he is pleading not guilty.

Onyango Obama... Illegal alien, accused drunk driver, Uncle to the President of the United States

It is so reassuring to me that the president's family members demonstrate such responsibility, strength of character and citizenship. It reflects so well on the president.

So why is my stomach rumbling?

Cops With SAMs?

NEW YORK (AP) -- The chief of the New York Police Department says city police could take down a plane if necessary.

Well now. There are two ways for New York City to take down a plane in flight... One is to have its very own a jet fighters to shoot it down, the other is a SAM (Surface-to-Air Missile),fired skyward by one of New York's best and brightest.

Oh hell yes. Let's think this through. A cop looks up into the sky and sees a jet liner headed for the Chrysler building at 500MPH. Since New York City doesn't have its own Air Force equipped with modern jet fighters armed with air-to-air missiles(which would be sitting out on the tarmac somewhere unfueled, unmanned, unarmed and unprepared), our cop will no doubt radio somebody somewhere who has the SAMs under lock and key, tells them of the incoming aircraft, who in turn tells him him they need confirmation before they authorize their perhaps military-trained rocketeers to start filling the New York sky with missiles.

By now - of course - that aircraft has already hit the building. When our hawkeyed cop spotted it, it was just seconds away from its target.

Hmmm. Who are the NYPD rocketeers to shoot at now?

But wait, you say. New york has its National Guard. Give me a freaking break. Like every other National Guard, they have obsolete and poorly maintained equipment, useless in any emergency requiring a fast response. And... Their on-site personnel consists mostly of overweight pot-bellied retired military and youngish, underpaid office jockeys who joined the National Guard for the few bucks a month they get. Besides, 99% of their personnel are in Iraq or Afghanistan anyway.

Oh wait... Maybe New York City is constructing a radar system that will spot a suspicious aircraft out a bit further than the Hudson River, to be manned by more of New York's finest 24-7, no doubt extensively trained by the FAA to be competent Air Controllers, and under rigid Union control.


RADAR DUDE :Mr. bigshot union boss, we have an aircraft headed for the Chrylser building! We need to shoot it down!

MR. BIGSHOT UNION BOSS: No no no... This is an ideal time to squeeze the city for more pay and benefits!

Hmmmmmm. So a NYC Air Controller manning NYC's non-existent all new and modern (spelled expensive) radar system spots an incoming aircraft - one of hundreds daily - and decides that this particular one is going to hit the Chrysler building. Sound the alarm. Inform the superiors, who - of course - are going to need verification.

Now suppose - just suppose - some total idiot in the NYC hierarchy of bosses (of which there are many) decides to authorize the NYC rocketeers to shoot down the approaching aircraft.

Where in hell did New York get the authority to shoot down anything? Much less a commercial airliner full of citizens? Who gave NYC the authority to do such a thing? That fool Obama, or one of his idiot flunkies at the White House?

Bottom line... If the NYC government has taken steps to provide itself with the ability to shoot down what they may believe to be a suspicious aircraft, they have gone far over the line and should be tossed out of office.... NOW, before they do something really really stupid.

Could New york's leaders actually convince themselve to do such an insane thing?

A Letter To My Representitive In Congress

So you have introduced another bill to do another fine-sounding something. Tell me: Exactly how will this bill - like so many others before it - even survive to do anything?

If history is a guide, it won't go anywhere and won't accomplish anything. It will simply die its anticipated slow death after having served it's true purpose: To make it sound is if something is actually being done.

Introducing an endless stream of fine-sounding bills for back-home consumption, bills that actually do nothing and go nowhere, represents a tactic that has run its course... It will no longer work.

You can not possibly realize how sick and tired I am of all of those in Washington who promise great things, but deliver only more regulations, more red tape, more taxes, more unbelievably massive and totally insane levels of debt, more lies and more despair.

I have unsubscribed from your e-mail newsletter since it serves no useful purpose other than as a propaganda piece.

You are failures, the lot of you. You have failed to support and champion the citizens of America. It is time for all of you to go.


Go back to Texas. Open a business. Then let's all see how well you will do in this fatally hostile business environment created by the lunatic fringe in Washington, in this educational environment where whomever you hire will be too uneducated, too clueless, too stupid to do the work you need them to do.

Try being force fed your own medicine for a change. You will not like it.

Some Sobering Thoughts For An American Male

This guy does indeed touch a few nerves:
I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.
This is from a blog called BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN .

No doubt this guy has had a bit of a problem with a few - or more - American females that fit his description. But if you read his blog, you will go away thinking, "Hey, I know a gal(probably several, perhaps many) just like that".

Western Civilization women - including American women - are living in the greatest era for females in the history of the world. Just look at a average American female and what she has: Her own job, her own car, her own apartment, a closet full of designer clothes, the finest of food and entertainment. she has the freedom to do whatever, to go wherever, whenever. And yet, you see a stream of TV ads promoting products specifically for these females because they are "depressed".

You have all seen the above ad on TV at one time or another. It promotes the idea that women cannot be happy - or even "feel better" - without a doctor and a bottle of pills. But why is she depressed?" Shame on you, you racist, sexist, homophobic Neanderthal... for even asking. She just IS.

My Dad used to say that when I started feeling low, take a piece of paper, write down my assets and liabilities and compare. It wouldn't take long to start feeling better about myself. No expensive pills, no psychiatrist, no fancy new toy or plaything to make me feel better. Turns out he was 100% correct.

Many of today's women need to take a long look at their situation... And perhaps they would finally be grateful they are living today, here, now.

It's Just Like I Said, Only Worse

Back on March 13, 2009, I wrote a blog about NASA's big plans to replace the space shuttle.

Well, I was right on target. I had predicted complete and total disaster. Today, the shuttle is gone, and its planned "replacement", The Orion, is history. We have no way to send our astronauts back into space... unless we pay the Russians millions and millions of dollars to buy a ride in one of their obsolete, but still functional, Soyuz bottle rockets. Even our space station is under threat of abandonment as the aging Soyuz fleet starts to fail.

The most expensive, most highly trained and most under-utilized group of men and woman on planet earth, our astronaut corps, are now - for all practical purposes - seat warmers. We will no doubt send a few men back into space with a seat purchased on that Russian Soyuz because, well, you know, just because, and perhaps we will send one last woman back into space as a tribute to the tremendous success of feminism in America.

What I didn't see back in March 2009 is that our multi-billion-dollar space station would be a candidate for shut down and re-entry burnup just months after it was finally completed. I figured they would keep manning and womanning it for at least a few years, or until all that fancy test equipment wore out, but when push comes to shove, I guess its just not that useful.

Hell, even the Chinese don't want it... they are working on their own space station even as NASA's boys and girls work away at keeping those seats warm.

NASA got way too politically correct, forgot what their real mission was, and now are discovering the cost of their dalliance.

I will be quite surprised if NASA survives the next presidency and the next Congress.

But don't despair. We Americans will be able to watch the continued exploration of space and our neighboring planets through the eyes and ears of other nations... once we translate their reports into English.

And The Bells Toll....

The night closes in. Read the surveys of what children know, what students in universities know. Approximately nothing. We have become wanton morons. As the intellectual shadows fall again, as literacy declines and minds grow dim in the new twilight, who will copy the parchments this time?

No longer are we a schooled people. Brash new peasants grin and peck at their iPods. Unknowing, incurious, they gaze at their screens and twiddle, twiddle. They will not preserve the works of five millenia. They cannot. They do not even know why.

Twilight really does come. Sales of books fall. Attention spans shorten. Music gives way to angry urban grunting. The young count on their fingers when they do not have a calculator, know less by the year. We have already seen the frist American generations less educated than their parents. College graduates do not know when World War One happened, or what the Raj was. They have read nothing except the nothing that they read, and little of that. Democracy was an interesting thought.

Ours will be a stranger Dark Age than the old one. Our peasants brush their teeth and wash, imagine themselves of the middle class, but their heads are empty.

And they rule. We have achieved the dictatorship of the proletariat. Hod-carriers in designer jeans, they do not quite burn books but simply ignore them. Their college degrees amount to high-school diplomas, if that, but they neither know nor care.

The things that have forever constituted civilization—respect for learning whether one had it or not, wide reading, careful use of language, manners, such notions as “lady” and “gentleman”--these are held in contempt.

The above is Fred Reed at his best. If you are interested in what he had to say in the rest of this post, go to Fred On Everything. Its quite damning, but it is also quite true.

Push Enough Buttons...

Comments are OK ow.


Can't seem to get the comments to work....

I'll just keep pushing buttons until something gives...

Power Outage

Millions of people were affected in southern California and Arizona by a massive power outage yesterday.

"Officials" said it was not deliberate, but an action caused by some employee somewhere.

Color me dubious. I have realized for some time that those who hate us enough to fly our planes into our buildings surely understand that knocking out large sections of our power grid would be far more effective, devastating and long term than destroying another building or two full of paper shufflers.

Photo of a soft target(out in the middle of nowhere)

That's what I am expecting... A few terrorists with a few sticks of dynamite stolen from a construction site go out into the desert almost anywhere sporting a major power transmission line, wrap some explosive around a few legs on a few towers, set a timer, and bang!

Not a cop anywhere. Not a single Homeland Security dude in his three-piece suit from Washington. Not a single gung-ho SWAT loony within a hundred miles. All the terrorists walk away scot free, and the U.S. suffers a major setback.

That's what I thought when I first heard the news. It's so obvious and so simple. And the way our "officials" endlessly lie to us all, the story about some employee - somewhere - flipping the wrong switch may not be what happened at all.

But... Our "officials" are going to investigate. Golly gee, that makes me feel so much better.

The War On Who?

Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa had some profane, combative words for Republicans while warming up the crowd for President Obama in Detroit, Michigan on Monday.

"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war," Jimmy Hoffa said to a heavily union crowd.
"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added.
ROFL.... some army. A bunch of mal-educated buffoons that happen to belong to his "guild".

Well now. I'm not a Republican, a Democrat, or a Tea party dude. But I am one of those anti-modern-day-union "sons of bitches" he wants to take out.

However, I don't believe its a real war that this clown wants. He and his assembly-line crowd of loudmouthed bullies, muggers and hoods would lose in thirty minutes, and he knows it. For one thing, the real Americans he and his boys would run into in a real war are far better armed and trained in things like hunting and shooting noisy moving targets than they are .... What with their little Pop-bang toys they sling in under their armpits. More than fifty yards away they're just overweight targets making all that noise and shooting at shadows.

He's doing all this rabble-rousing trashmouthery to impress those seditious fools in Congress (the swamp critters) that take his money. They are the people you need to worry about in all this - they make the rules - based on the impressions they receive from gangstas like Hoffa, whose real job is to steer all those compromised Congressional sellouts in their direction.

Seems he is either getting very desperate... Or very confident. But it seems there is one lesson people like Hoffa and his ilk never learn:

When folks finally get completely fed up with all the skullduggery and scumbaggery, they roll over the bastards like steamrollers. Ordinary folks have always had the innate ability to put aside the rules of society long enough to truly "take out the sons of bitches".

It's happened many times before, it will happen again.

That's why they should go back to teaching history. But it seems every generation has to learn the hard way.

"Nazi" Town

There's a big ruckus going on in a teenie little Arizona town where the local police got a bit out of hand and are now running for cover:

The Arizona town that's become a YouTube sensation for its police department hauling away a woman speaking at a town-hall meeting allegedly declared a state of emergency this afternoon, leaving many local residents in fear of what officers dressed in full riot gear might do.

The putz that started it all was Local Councilman Joe Winslow, who decided that a citizen didn't have the right to speak at a public meeting. The Mayor disagreed.

The below photo is of Mr. "silence-the-opposition" himself.

I'm not posting the photo because this guy deserves it in any way. What I'm curious about is the flag he is standing in front of.

What, who or where does that flag/banner/sign represent?

"A Lying, No Good Slut"

"But not a killer".


During the summation being made by the defense in the Casey Anthony trial, the defense attorney made a statement to the jury in which he said "Casey Anthony may be a lying, no good slut", but not a killer.

I almost fell out of my chair. It's hard to imagine the defense vocalizing such a statement and putting it into the collective heads of the jury, particularly at the very end of the the trial.

"Lying, no good slut" will echo through the jurors heads while they deliberate, but the tag line "but not a killer" will be lost.

It may have been a defense maneuver to have a mistrial declared at a future date.


The verdict is in, and the jury agreed with the defense attorney... A lying no good slut, but not a murderer.

Why All The Hate?

Sarah Palin says celebrity critics are 'full of hate'

Film-maker Stephen K Bannon's hagiographical portrayal of Sarah Palin opens with several minutes of footage in which various well-known figures in film and US television offer scathing, often expletive-ridden verdicts on the former Alaska governor and darling of the American right, who is said to be weighing up a tilt at the US presidency next year. Their angry comments are interspersed with news footage of an effigy of Palin being hanged. Among those to be represented are Matt Damon (who likens Palin to "a really bad Disney movie"), Madonna, comic Bill Maher and talk-show hosts David Letterman and Howard Stern.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter following the screening at a historic opera house in the small town of Pella, Iowa, Palin said it was the first time she had seen the footage. "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, 'What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?'" she said. "What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"

What's their problem?

These "Celebrities" she asks about are - off camera - liars, cheats, adulterers, drunks, druggies, pedophiles, thieves, lowlifes of all stripes who fear anyone that may shine a light on them and expose them for what they really are... very very sick people.

I conclude that - deep down inside - the individuals that launch these kinds of attacks know they are leading lives of depravity and perversion and cannot tolerate anyone that may expose them to the public, potentially destroying their reputations and careers.

It is easy to understand why any of Hollywood's cavorting and drunken blond bimbos do not want to be compared to someone like Michelle Bachmann.

Generally decent people like Palin and Bachmann really scare these scumbags. That's why all this hatred and vitriol are tossed at them every minute of the day.

Consider the sources of these attacks. Study the lives they lead, and then decide who the losers are.

Nationwide News Blackout

Here's a massive wreck that is almost impossible to get details on:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Two truck drivers and a train engineer watched helplessly as a semitrailer slammed into an Amtrak passenger train at a Nevada highway crossing, skidding the length of a football field before it smashed through the warning gates and into a pair of double-decker cars.

They say his brakes must have failed.

When an eighteen-wheeler is involved in a serious accident out in the southwest and the news is buried, you can pretty much be certain that the truck driver was a Mexican National driving a Mexican truck, one of the trucks that have been allowed to enter the United States without any sort of proper safety inspection or oversight, part of the administrations pilot program to allow unlimited access across our borders for Mexican freight haulers.

I imagine we will never know for sure, particularly if the driver was indeed a Mexican national... Bad press for the pilot program.

Peoria, Illinois

Insanity in Peoria:

... around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill all the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

Those young "African American" fools have no idea how close to the edge they are.

I can promise you one thing: One fine night they will pick the wrong neighborhood in the wrong town... and none of them will live to tell the story.

They are begging for open warfare in the streets. They may actually believe they are ready for it. But being a big mouth with a pistol in the middle of a screaming mob doesn't make one ready for a 30.06 slug between the eyes.

Like I've said before, It's gonna be a long, hot summer... this one, or the next... latest.

Whose Side?

Drawing a line in the sand:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is questioning the priorities of lawmakers criticizing the U.S. intervention in Libya.

She's asking bluntly, "Whose side are you on?"

Seems we have two choices for an answer:

-1) I'm on the side of the Constitution that requires the president to get Congressional approval before committing this nation to War, or to an Act of War.

-2) I'm on the side of a president who believes he has no limits to his powers.

Answer (1) means you also agree that the War Powers Act is Unconstitutional and thus illegal, that Congress cannot abrogate it's Constitutional responsibilities by pawning them off on to the president.

The real question is:

Whose side is Hillary on?

Ron Paul Beats Romney Big Time

Ron Paul captured the presidential straw poll at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, easily besting his nearest competitor, Jon Huntsman.

Paul won 612 votes to Huntsman's 382. Michele Bachmann came in third with 191 votes and Herman Cain finished behind her, taking 104 votes.

Paul was edged by one vote at this same event last year, but this straw poll success has become de rigeur at such gatherings. And, just as they have at recent CPACs, Paul's backers in the crowd here let out loud cheers when the results were announced from the stage while the regular Republicans in the audience booed the Libertarian-leaning Texas congressman's success.

Romney got a rip-roaring 74 votes, Tim Pawlenty, 18 votes.

Regular Republicans in the audience booed the Libertarian-leaning Texas congressman's success.

I used to be one of those "regular Republicans" but got tired of trying to tippy-toe around in a pit of Boa Constrictors.

Never was a democrat... Didn't like the pond scum sticking to my ankles.

Now I just sit back and throw rocks at both their houses.

Actually it's not two separate houses, it's more like a duplex that shares the same garage, yard and roof.

6,000 Megawatts Gone Forever

And that's just for starters.

Utility giant American Electric Power said Thursday that it will shut down five coal-fired power plants and spend billions of dollars to comply with a series of pending Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

In a statement outlining its plan to comply with EPA's regulations, AEP said it would need to retire 6,000 megawatts of coal-fired power generation in the coming years.

Does anyone understand just how much power that is? How many cities could go dark if we lost these 6,000 Megawatts?

One thing for certain, brownouts and selective power shut downs will increase dramatically.

Show me how this administration intends to replace this 6,000 Megawatts. With solar? Wind? Don't make me laugh.

Demand from these lunatics the plans on exactly now they will replace this lost energy: What kind of generation source, where it will be, how much it will cost, how long it will take to construct.

Demand that they provide replacement energy, watt for watt, before they close down any plant, anywhere.

Those who believe or think solar or wind will supply us with our energy needs are nothing more than day-dreaming fools. They just haven't done the math. At the same time, they refuse to allow nuclear plants to be built, or hydro-electric plants along our rivers, or gas-fired plants anywhere.

These Renaissance Fair simpletons think we should all scale back to the lifestyles of our forefathers in the 17th century: Mud shacks, tallow candles, outhouses, all of us raising chickens and sheep and planting wheat every year.

They intend to do this by not only making power too expensive for us, but making sure there is no power to be had at any price.

This is war people, and it's time to stop these lunatics. Who the hell does the EPA think it is to impose such draconian policies on America? By what authority are they doing this?

Congress better get off it's fat butt and put a short leash on the EPA before they do irreparable damage to our society and our nation.

Stanley Anne Dunham

Much has been written about Barack Obama's mother. The Internet is packed with views and opinions from every angle. Very little of what has been written can be truly established as fact since Stanley Ann is dead and gone... And that so many records about her are missing or destroyed.

For me, a picture has emerged about this woman - created by the many articles I have read - and the picture is not a pretty one.

Some say this woman hated her father because of her name: Stanley. They say she believed she was named for a son her father wanted but never had. Because of this hatred of her father - who represented all things white to her - she intentionally searched out the blackest of men who would have her.

It would seem that her "marriage" to Obama Senior was one of those "marriages of convenience", wherein a foreign student marries a citizen in order to remain in the United States, in this case for Obama Sr., it was so he could finish his American education. Records indicate that they never lived together, reinforcing this assumption.

She then married an Indonesian and moved to Indonesia. However, no record of a divorce from Obama Sr. has been found.

The available data and records on Stanley Ann suggest she could have been a huge embarrassment (at the very least) to a President Obama.

Obama came out of nowhere to become president. His short and unnotable bit as an Illinois Senator is/was not sufficient to elevate him into the national spotlight, into the role of a presidential candidate.

There are powerful individuals and groups that have managed and steered this man in to what he is today: A tool trained to transform America into something it was never intended to be.

For that reason, I suspect that those who molded Obama for the position he holds today, those who supported him and paid for his expensive education and livelihood, the people in the shadows behind this American president, arranged for his mother to be removed from the scene.

Consider: His mother was still reasonably young (52) and in apparent good health, but contacts cancer and dies. In 1995 she was examined at the Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and diagnosed with uterine cancer that had spread to her ovaries.

Said Obama of his mothers death:

I remember my mother. She was 52 years old when she died of ovarian cancer, and you know what she was thinking about in the last months of her life? She wasn’t thinking about getting well. She wasn't thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality. She had been diagnosed just as she was transitioning between jobs. And she wasn’t sure whether insurance was going to cover the medical expenses because they might consider this a preexisting condition. I remember just being heartbroken, seeing her struggle through the paperwork and the medical bills and the insurance forms. So, I have seen what it's like when somebody you love is suffering because of a broken health care system.

Sounds like a campaign speech.

There was money enough for an education at two of Americas most expensive universities, but not enough available to save his mother?

Obama had the money to be able to graduate magna cum laude from the Harvard Law School in 1991, and we are to believe that a Harvard graduated lawyer couldn't figure out how to get some cash for his Momma's operation in 1995?

Now, hundreds of thousands of women have had those particular innards removed without issue. It's a form of birth control. One must ask why Stanley Ann's diseased organs were not simply removed? Or if they were removed(in what is considered a ho-hum operation), why did she die, when many thousands of women did not?

The whole story about the death of Stanley Ann stinks.

People powerful enough to create an American president out of thin air would certainly have no problem or qualms about removing a potential embarrassment, even if it was his mother.

One thing... What the records do show is that Stanley Ann was indeed a good mother, and all the sadder the story if she was killed for political convenience.

One must wonder if Obama has ever given this a moment's thought.
