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.
