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.

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.
