A Requested Flare

Galt-in-the-box asked if I was still kicking.

Well, yes, but many things have happened that has kept me completely away from blogging.

Haven't kept up much with the news because right now I've had just about all I can handle.

Wife had cervical cancer(diagnosed Mar 17), then a massive stroke(April 19), then two fractured vetabra while in rehab, where she is still today, able to move only one arm.

Then, I got bit by a brown recluse spider, then contacted a UTI had landed me in the hospital for three days, then caught it a second time. The medicines for all this was so bad it made me constantly sick, so I had to take nausea pills before each dose of medicine.

I had been spending at least 6-8 hours every day with her, making sure her clothes were laundered (I laundered them myself), made certain she ate at least two solid meals a day, and making certain the aides did their job properly when it came to diaper changes and showers. I had to stop the visits when I contacted the infections. This coming Monday I will be tested to see that I am healed. I can then start the visits again.

My computer got wiped out by a nasty Trojan and still isn't fixed, so I'm using wife's computer, which has none of my programs on it.

But what the hell. My problems pale in comparison to my wife's troubles If she were in as good a shape as I am today, we would both be happy - and fortunate - beyond reason.

Wife did beat the cancer, but is still fighting the stroke. As of now, it is not very hopeful she will recover very much.

So... this Christmas she will spend in a Medicaid rest home, seemingly slipping by the day, with little hope of ever coming home.

She was a good woman and a fantastic wife.

She deserves a better end than this.

How's That Again?

The sun always rises... even for those who spent a lifetime with their heads solidly inserted up where the sun never shines:


Well, Dagnabit! Things weren't supposed to turn
 out like this! Must'a been Reagan's fault!
 Or that damned rabbit!


Liberal/Socialist/Progressive//big government champion Jimmy Carter just said:

"The disparity between rich people and poor people in America has increased dramatically since when we started," he said. "The middle class has become more like poor people than they were 30 years ago. So I don't think it's getting any better."

Am I reading that right? That Carter is actually seeing and understanding the results of the policies he championed as president?

Thanks, But No Thanks

Texas state Senator Wendy Davis and her advisers have begun informing influential Democrats that she intends to run for governor in 2014.

Davis made a national splash last June when she mounted an unsuccessful filibuster against new proposed abortion clinic regulations.


Texas state Senator Wendy Davis


The bill banned abortions after 20 weeks - or five months - and required clinics to meet the same standards that hospital surgical centers do, and mandated that a doctor who performs abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

Except for the twenty week ban, the bill requires vastly increased protection for females seeking to terminate their pregnancy. It requires that the "doctor" performing the abortion actually be a doctor. It requires that the "clinic" used meet accepted hospital standards for - among other things - cleanliness, safety and sterilization of equipment.

Sounds pretty reasonable to me.  So what did Wendy Davis object to in the new regulations?

Late-term abortions(abortions after five months) and live birth abortions(after actual birth of a living baby) are now banned. Apparently, this is unacceptable to Ms. Davis, who is a highly vocal and visible supporter of a woman's "right" to terminate her potential children. 

Ms. Davis has received many awards during her political career. Among them:

"Bold Woman Award" from girls, Inc.
"Champion for Children Award" from the Equity Center.

Now that's confusing. A woman who has become the State's new champion for pro-choice received an award declaring her a "Champion for Children". A "Champion for Children" ought to be fighting for their "right" to life, rather than filibustering for their termination. Perhaps an award declaring her a "Champion for Motherless Sex" would have been closer to the mark.

The United States Bill of Rights guarantees all of us the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The issue when it comes to Rights is: When does an developing embryo become of of "us"? That's a never-ending  concept for us all to squabble over, argue for or against, maybe even go to war over..

So what's the real issue here? Today's modern woman wants to enjoy sex without consequence.

Abortions because of rape, incest and medical problems seem reasonable to many people. I - for one - would not be wanting to raise the offspring of some 80 IQ savage, and I definitely would not need to wait 5 months to have the pregnancy terminated. 

I have no dog in this fight other than perhaps the long term survival of our species. It seems to me we should have some sort of safeguards in place to prevent unborn children from being slaughtered by women to whom motherhood would be an inconvenience or burden to their lifestyle..

There are plenty of women who want to be mothers. Let the rest of them get sterilized if they so choose.

So, if I have no dog in this abortion thing, why do I say "no thanks" to Wendy?

Anybody who believes that the termination of developing life should be acceptable for no other reason than personal choice or convenience will easily buy into the notion that terminating life that has been around too long is acceptable also. You know, old people.

That sort of person I don't want making the rules.

The Debt Ceiling



President Obama just stated that raising our debt ceiling does not raise the debt.

Absolutely true. The man has spoken truth.

The debt ceiling is an arbitrary limit on deficit spending as determined by Congress. It is supposed to prevent the federal government from spending us into ruin.

What raises the national debt is the federal government spending money we don't have. And history has proved that the federal government will spend any money it can get its hands on. Always.

When Congress raises the debt ceiling,  the federal government will spend it's way to it quickly.

And  Congress has - over 100 times - raised the debt ceiling, allowing more and more deficit spending. That's why we are in debt almost 18 trillion dollars*.

So, the president - by not explaining the entire situation but only commenting about a small - but correct - part of it, once again sounds presidential and knowledgeable. But only to the non-thinking.

To those who can see beyond the endless 30-second sound bites, President Obama has once again demonstrated his skill at using a smidgen of truth to make himself seem the adult in the room, the fearless leader, the wise mentor.

But he is none of those. The sad part of it all is that Congress will continue to allow him to play his wholly destructive game of transformation.

A very willing Congress, I might add.

*America will never manage to pay off this incredible debt.  National bankruptcy is the only course left.

9-11




Federal government protection from terrorist attacks.
Works well, does it not?

I have a tendency to look at things differently.

Every time I see another re-run of ex-president Bush on TV telling us all how he was going to protect us Americans from terrorism, I see the destroyed towers with their thousands of dead and can only conclude that Bush and the government failed miserably and totally to save anybody on 9-11, even with all the billions and billions that had already spent by our government and its supposed legions of agents here and around the world tasked with America's security.

Nobody in our massive government saw  9-11. coming.

Nobody.

Nobody in our massive government saw any danger with Major Hidal Malik Hassan at Fort Hood.

Nobody in our massive government saw a problem with the Boston brothers - the pressure cooker bombers -  even with all manner of warning signs

Nobody in our massive government saw Benghazi as a threat, even with all manner of warnings.

Seems nobody in our massive government sees or hears anything that could result in stopping actual terrorist attacks, although they claim to have stopped dozens and dozens of attacks,  which they can't tell us about... security reasons don't you know.

Based on the government's track record on real terrorist attacks, I tend to laugh at the claims they make on all the ones they can't talk about. If they can't protect us from the big, well organized and well planned attacks like 9-11, tell me how we can believe them about any other attacks.

But everybody in our massive government is sure good at keeping a close watch on us American citizens, most of whom couldn't manage to make a firecracker bomb.

Apparently, our massive government is not afraid of terrorists.

So perhaps this terrorist threat so endlessly drummed on by our massive government is not at all what they claim.

Presidential Metamorphosis Almost Complete

The blossoming Barry: 



Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal (some folks consider humans as just advanced animals) physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Some insects, amphibians, mollusks, crustaceans, Cnidarians, echinoderms and tunicates undergo metamorphosis, which is usually accompanied by a change of habitat ( For example, from Chicago to Washington) or behavior(from bullshit artist to just plain liar).

Scientific usage of the term is exclusive, and is not applied to general aspects of cell growth, including rapid growth spurts. References to "metamorphosis" in mammals are imprecise and only colloquial, but historically idealist ideas (no kidding) of transformation and monadology, as in Gorthe's Metamorphosis of Plants, influenced the development of ideas of evolution  

In Barry's case, forget scientific usage, it is in what he said he would do as candidate Barry, and what he is actually doing as President Barry.

In the entire history of the world, no insect, amphibian, mollusk, crustacean, Cnidarian, echinoderm or tunicate has succeeded in such a massive change in so sort a time.

Remarkable? Not really. His metamorphosis is only in the public eye. He has not changed a whit, it is our perception of him and his agenda that is morphing.

What we are ending up with, no matter what you are - Progressive, Socialist, Liberal, Feminist, Democrat, Republican, conservative, gay, actually smart, whatever -  is a long ways away from what we expected... poor old Barry is nothing more than a malleable lump of clay, a puppet,  a party loving, golf playing and smooth-talking simpleton(with teleprompter and pre-written  script), molded and controlled by those who would rule the world, those who understand that a free America is their greatest enemy.

Give the fool his due credit, he has done his part admirably.

Don't blame him, we let him do it.

Sounds Sorta Right....

 
 


ALERTS TO THREATS
IN 2013 EUROPE

From JOHN CLEESE

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.


The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.


The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France 's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.


Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."


The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."


Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels ..


The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.


Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be right, Mate." Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!" and "The barbie is cancelled." So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.


Regards,
John Cleese ,
British writer, actor and tall person


And as a final thought - Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.

Life is too short...

Once again, thanks to ex-army.

This May Not Work Out Well...

 
 


Muslims who have begun promoting a 9/11 march in Washington that originally was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the U.S.” and then changed to be a “March Against Fear” may have some competition. http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/bikers-to-counter-muslim-march/

Loud competition. Very loud. And lots of it.

Bikers.

Bring your cameras.

And popcorn. Lots of popcorn.
      
 

Homeland Security: Whose Homeland?

 
 
This white-hater and promoter of the mass murder of whites
 is an employee of the Department of Homeland Security.
 Free safer now?


A Department of Homeland Security employee who works on, among other things, the procurement of guns and ammunition for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, spends his nights and weekends preparing for a coming race war and advocating for anti-gay causes, according to a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Meet Ayo Kimathi, a.k.a. “the Irritated Genie," who told his bosses at the DHS that his anti-white, anti-gay site, "War is on the Horizon," was just an entertainment site that sells concert and lecture videos.

But in reality, he is promoting the mass murder of white people. His site says, "warfare is eminent, and in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our christian hearts can possibly count."

Christian hearts? Now that's laughable. This racist lunatic is promoting the mass murder of white men, women and children, more than they can possibly count. To me, that means he envisions millions of bodies laying around unburied and rotting in the noonday sun, white folk slaughtered by his rampaging brothers, feeding the flies and maggots.

He believes a race war is coming. He is promoting a race war. But he needs to be very careful. He may actually get what he's praying for. Such a conflict will leave very little of modern society behind for the unfortunate survivors. Let's hope the survivors of his dreamed of race war won't miss things like cars, TV's, cell phones, running water, grocery stores, modern medicine -  you know - stuff that requires a civilization run by people with brains to create and maintain.

Refuse to believe? Go check out his site. It's all there.

The man is lost in his own rantings.  The most vicious - and progressive - race to ever walk the face of this earth is the white race, and they absolutely will not stand by and be mowed down like so many ducks in a row.

Believe that.

Who Is She?


The young girl in the following posters - with various captions - has been used countless times to demonstrate the attitudes of the modern Progressive American female.







 

                                            


There is now a blog post attempting to find out:

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/college-liberal

That blog defines her as :

College Liberal (also known as “Female College Liberal” and “Bad Argument Hippie”) is an advise animal image macro series featuring a photo of a young Caucasian female with dreadlocks wearing a knitted cap. The captions typically portray the character as a naive and hypocritical left-wing political activist, referencing various clich├ęs associated with the “hippie” subculture.

Go read the blog. It has a lot more samples of the posters.

Obligatory Post On Zimmerman/Martin

The Real Story of St. Trayvon's Martyrdom


Eighth Grader Honor Student and born-genius Trayvon Martin is walking home in his graduation cap and gown, after spending the day tutoring disadvantaged red, yellow, black and white children, because they are precious in his sight.

Short, fat, stupid, ugly, blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan Nation member and Neo-Nazi George Zimmerman is driving around in his Confederate Flag draped pickup while sporting a monocle and a paste-on dueling scar.

Zimmerman spots Trayvon through the night by the near-blinding glow of his halo.

Cackling evilly, the white supremacist Klansman takes chase.

The football star nearly outruns him, but he is trapped by a "Do Not Enter" sign.

Faced with certain death or disobeying the law, Trayvon makes his stand.

Trayvon attempts to reason with his attacker using by the degrees in Philosophy and Theology he earned at five years old, but the illiterate racist will have none of it.

Zimmerman takes a swing of "Lean" (made from Skittles, Arizona sweet tea and Robitussion) and snarls, "Any last words, nigra?"

Trayvon looks his executioner in the eye and replies, "Truth, Justice and the American Way."

"WHITE POWER FOREVER!" shrieks Zimmerman as he unloads with his fully-automatic assault rifle.

If not for the Republican party Trayvon might have survived, but the skinhead's extended magazine, unfettered by their legislation, unloads hundreds of .50 caliber rounds into the future Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Zimmerman then bashes his own head into the curb repeatedly, while screaming in his girlish voice, "Help me!"

When he is finished, Hitler himself steps back into his gas-guzzling vehicle and peels away, seeking kittens and puppies to run over.

As Trayvon lay dying, the last thing he sees is the "Bush Cheney 2004" bumper sticker disappear into the night.

A nanosecond later, he grew his angel's wings and fluttered to heaven, to sit forever at the right hand of God.

Running Of The Fools

It's that time again...

The running of the bulls in the streets of Pamplona.

Only this time we have a young and very stupid girl thinking she can handle a bull as easily as she handles her wussified boyfriend.


Here is the part where she starts to think that
 challenging a half-ton of angry bull may not
have been her best move to date.
 
This shows when the "Oh Crap!" part of her day started.
If the bull didn't ruin those shorts, I'm certain she did.
 
 
One could almost believe she is an American girl fresh out of her Women's Studies class at college. She shows the exact same total lack of common sense.

I have just got to wonder if there was a third photo in the sequence.



Napolitano Bailing

Janet Napolitano said Friday she will resign as DHS secretary, a departure of a key cabinet member that - it is being claimed - could complicate immigration politics in Congress.
 
 
Getting out while the getting is good, and still able
 to claim... "It wasn't me!"
 

An administration Obot said  Napolitano plans to leave her post in early September. Her announcement comes as Congress wrestles with legislation that would overhaul the nation's immigration laws.
 
Congress, immigration, complicating politics... all balderdash.
 
Napolitano, faithful to her record and thinking of her legacy, is distancing herself - making an early departure - from the DHS before those MPAV's and heavily armed and armored O-troops(the civilian army Obama wanted) hit the streets in the upcoming unrest. 
 
It's pretty simple:  She wants the credit and kudos for building up the DHS into the massive administratively controlled armed force it now is, but wants to be free and clear of all responsibility and consequences when it starts rounding up, imprisoning and shooting down America citizens.
 
After all, she did learn her lessons well... at Waco.

Immigrants Have Gotten All the New Jobs Since 2000

Great news from the Washington times. A new study reveals that immigrants account for all of the new job creation in the United States since the year 2000. At the same time, employment for Americans born here has fallen. But sure, let’s encourage even more immigration.

Immigrants — both legal and illegal — have accounted for all of the job gains in the U.S. labor market since 2000, according to a report that highlights the stiff competition for jobs in a tight economy as Congress debates adding more workers to the mix.

 http://lonelyconservative.com/2013/07/immigrants-account-for-all-new-job-creation-in-us/


Someone tell me how this can be a good trend for a nation
 already divided beyond coping.


I suppose that explains what I have been seeing these last few months while involved with Dallas hospitals and skilled nursing centers.

And just what have I been seeing?

At a place as steeped in American tradition and culture as the Presbyterian Hospital complex in Dallas, one sees a substantial number of foreign doctors and nurses nowadays from places like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other equally far-off places.

At the skilled nursing center where my wife is recovering from her stroke, the great majority of nurses and nurses aides come from places like Nigeria, Nairobi, Ethiopia and other African nations.

The maintenance and cleanup crews appear to - and do - come from Cuba, Puerto Rico, South American countries like Mexico, Guatemala,  Bolivia, Brazil and Venezuela.

I'm positive that these immigrants - both legal and illegal -who have less than optimal training and work for less money than your typical American doctor, nurse, nurses aide, maintenance man or janitor, are not being hired in by these American institutions and their never greedy, bottom-line managers simply because they cost less to employ. It's probably that American high school and college graduates all want to be lawyers or bankers. or politicians,  and have no desire to pursue a career that might possibly require real work.

As in many stores and restaurants across America, hearing spoken English in these places is becoming a rarity as these immigrants revert to their more comfortable native tongues to communicate, and when many of them to attempt English, it is often difficult to understand.

Well, at least now I know why. The federal government, in all its wisdom, is - and has been - providing transportation, financial support, housing and jobs to millions of foreigners, while encouraging us Americans to tolerate all this, continue to pay our increasing tax burden, and fend for ourselves

We Americans should be proud. As we shoot ourselves in the head, we are at least providing a modern, healthy and safe nation(at least for now) for the worlds less fortunate to flock to.

Yay us.

We Don' need no steenking green card!


Old depiction of a Mexican criminal:


"The Bandito", as portrayed in the Humphrey Bogart Movie.,
"The Treasure of Sierra Madre"


The Bandito is dirty and unkempt, usually displaying an unshaven face, missing teeth, perhaps a gold tooth, and disheveled, oily hair. The face is scared and scowling to complete the easily recognizable stereotype. He is vicious, cruel, treacherous, shifty, and dishonest; psychologically he is irrational, overly emotional, and quick to resort to violence. His inability to speak English or his English with a very heavy Spanish accent is Hollywood's way of signaling his feeble intellect, a lack of brainpower that makes it impossible for him to plan or strategize successfully.

The bandito lives on in American film as Latino drug runners, Puerto Rican toughs in New York, and East LA homeboy gang-bangers.

No no no.....

Today's Mexican bandit is the typical illegal described below, and has done far more damage to the United States than any stereotype character Hollywood could ever dream up.


The True Tale Of Joe and Jose:

 
You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families
have two parents, two children, and live in the USA .
 
Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
 
Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number,
and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".
 
Ready? Now pay attention...
 
Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year.
Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has
$31,231.00.
 
Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or
$31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has
$31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for
his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now
has $24,031.00.
 
Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and
local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has
$31,200.00.
 
Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or
welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per
year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.
 
Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps
and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
 
Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe
Legal now has $9,631.00.
 
Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose
Illegal pays $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal
still has $ 31,200.00.
 
Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal
now has $7,231.00.
 
Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has
$31,200.00.
 
Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.
 
Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities,
gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
 
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
work.
 
Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
 
Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe
Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get
a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after
school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.
 
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services,
but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
 
Do you get it, now?

Thanks to Galt-in the box for this little jewel. 

One other thought:

When Jose's buddy Pedro gets across the border, he will join Jose on that construction job and replace Joe.

And what about Joe?

He just lost his job. He'll soon lose his home, all his assets and go bankrupt. He, his wife and two kids will have to survive on the kindness of friends and relatives... if any.

And Pedro? He will get all the perks Jose gets, and will soon be driving around in his brand new Ford F350 heavy-duty pickup truck, no license or insurance. You can do that when you pay cash.

"Creepy-Ass Cracker" Trial Blovates Onward

I'm certain all of us are aware of the three-ring circus amusingly referred to as the Zimmerman murder trial currently polluting the airwaves from every possible direction.

The prosecution's star witness, Rachael Jeantel, has been most impressive with her testimony, particularly with the multiple versions of her story, generously giving the jurors a menu of multiple choice versions of truth and reality to select from, depending upon their particular mindsets.

By golly, that's the way it should be in an nation overcrowded with educated,  responsible and freedom-loving adults!  We gotta have choices, and it's all relative anyway.    


Rachael Jeantel.  She said Travon called Zimmerman a "Creepy-Ass Cracker".
 
She may not be getting her story(s) exactly straight, but we can all be grateful that race has not become a factor in this sad, sad tale of  lost youth and innocence.

I look forward to justice being served up in this trial without race, sex, national origin, religion, political preference  candor, bias, mistruth or lies ever having even been the tiniest of factors.

I need to go look under my pillow now. Perhaps the tooth fairy visited last night.

Where Are You going To Run??


When all these peace-loving Muslims come knocking on your door? Unlike you, they are no longer being watched.

Thanks to the Obama Administration, they can now sit around in their mosques and safely plot how and when they will confront you, demanding you accept Allah as the only god - or behead you on the spot,  require that your wife wear a burkah and a full-length black sack of a dress at all times and everywhere, then grab your daughters and cut their clits off with a straight razor. All in the name of Allah, of course.

How can this be possible?

Simple.

Obama and his army of anti-American Progressives are ensuring the bad guys never get found out by not monitoring any of their conversations, e-mails, cell phones calls, etc.

The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.
That's right, the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.
Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.
Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.

On top of all that, every federally supported armed and deadly force will make certain you do not resist when the Muslims rise to conquer America. They have armored vehicles, attack helicopters,  fighter aircraft, main battle tanks, armed drones, advanced automatic weapons, night vision goggles, FLIR, billions of rounds of hollow point ammo,  the worlds most advanced sniper rifles, highly effective body armor, gas of all kinds and gobs of other stuff you haven't even heard about. They want to make certain that when a Muslim bombs your local grocery store that you do nothing more than watch the TV news about it. They want to make certain no Muslims are offended by some out-of-control No-account American protecting his rights and family.

I suppose it's only fair. After all, those 12th century barbarians need kid glove handling to help them into the 21st century, so they can use technology to destroy everything they don't like.

I will make a bet tho - I'll bet that the Chairman, members  and staff of that Secret Sensitive Operations Review Committee are all anti-American non-Americans.

Self-Destruct


Marco Rubio goes over the edge with afterburners blazing:

Why is it necessary to legalize the roughly 11 million currently-illegal immigrants in the U.S. before newly enhanced border security and internal enforcement measures are in place? Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Senate’s Gang of Eight, says part of the reason is that the federal government can’t afford to secure the border on its own and needs financial help from the immigrants themselves, in the form of fines paid when they are legalized.

Why do these idiots think they can spout drivel to one group of voters without anybody else finding out?

Send this dude back to wherever he came from... He's is not pro-America by any measure.

The Wisdon Of The Court Is Impressive

  Well, maybe not :


A quick- thinking Federal judge realizes he has discovered something. 


PHOENIX — A federal judge ruled Friday that the office of America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff systematically singled out Latinos in its trademark immigration patrols, marking the first finding by a court that the agency racially profiles people.
The 142-page decision by U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in Phoenix backs up allegations that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's critics have made for years that his officers rely on race in their immigration enforcement.

Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/05/judge-arizona-sheriff-joe-arpaio-office-profiles-latinos-91887.html#ixzz2UGzYiZ8M

Well now. Give that judge a cigar. He has - in only 142-pages - managed to discover the obvious: That it's mostly Mexicans sneaking into the country and that the Sheriff has already figured that out.

Myself, I would have never figured that out. All this time I thought it was Martian aliens swarming across our southern border and would never have thought to single out Mexicans hiding in the bushes along the Rio Grande that couldn't speak a word of English.

Both Mexican and Martian starts with "M".  Maybe that's where all the confusion comes from.

'We'll Never Stop Fighting You...

... Until you leave us alone."




So said the killer of the British soldier in a video. Sadly, the part about leaving them alone is being edited out of just about every video you can find.

In other words, the implied idea that maybe we should try leaving them alone will vanish in the morning mist. Doesn't fit the mantra of a worldwide terrorism threat.

What did he mean by "leave us alone"?

I can only hazard a guess, but maybe he means we need to get the hell out of their nations, stop bombing and killing them by the tens of thousands and quit using drone strikes that has killed more innocent women and children than supposed terrorists.

Maybe if we quit killing them, they'll quit killing us. After all, we are so much better at it than they are. They kill a few of us, we kill a thousand of them. They must be very poor at math.

Nah. What fun is that?

Weiner For Mayor




I've been having a slew of tough weeks in a row, so something like this really helps to put a smile on my face:

Anthony Weiner makes it official: He's running for mayor

After months of speculation, Weiner released a YouTube video around midnight Wednesday announcing his candidacy for mayor in an already packed field.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/anthony-weiner-finally-official-running-mayor-article-1.1351265

We should have a rule that requires all politicians give us a good laugh like this before we run them out of town on a rail.

Goes to show just how irresistible that hunger, that lust for power and prestige can really be.

The Cavalry Comes Through

 


Just imagine that the above picture is of my son, his wife and friends for the last few weeks. They have been relentless in the search for proper treatment, something I would have never had a clue how to do. I would have never found out the ways around the massive bureaucracy that is health care to find to options and ways the government does provide... but is not required to inform anyone about.

Thanks to their incredible efforts,  the way is now clear for Jan to get both skilled nursing treatment for her stroke and the radiation treatments for her cancer. She re-starts her radiation treatments tomorrow, and the nursing home will provide transportation to the hospital cancer center and back.

Co-pay for the skilled nursing center is jumping up to around 28% of the total cost, but that appears do-able, another area where our son is stepping up to the plate.

Jan's' stroke recovery is slow but steady. We are hoping that the progress is sufficient enough that the board of deciders - or whatever they are called - will see fit to continue her treatments.

At least the cancer will now be beaten back.

And that's a major win, believe me.

Not So Good Times



The day after my last previous post wife was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 2B, so blog posts went to the bottom of the list of priorities.

She was going to Dallas Presbyterian Hospital for chemo and radiation treatments and was halfway through the process when she had a stroke, paralyzing her left side. After four days in ICU and five days in recovery, she's in a skilled nursing facility as she recovers from the stroke.

After she regains sufficient mobility, she will finish of the cancer treatments. This type of cancer has a 99% cure rate, so no real worries on that front. After that, doctors will decide whether or not to remove the problem pluming, so we may still have a few more hills to climb.

Family members arranged for an apartment for me just three blocks away from the hospital and skilled nursing center, so my daily visits are just a short drive. We hauled one of the computers up to this place, so I can now post/read, etc. in the evenings.

Right at this time I could give a damn what's happening on the national level, so don't expect much from me for the next few weeks.

The 900 lb. gorilla we are facing is her  insurance  coverage, since she has been refused coverage on both the cancer and the stroke at the same time, giving us an either/or choice on treatments. The doctors decided that the stoke recovery was the more critical of the two, so she is at the skilled nursing home receiving treatment for the stroke.

Medical insurance has become a minefield in which tippy-toeing through the tulips  has become a vital skill and probably our biggest worry. Our son is handling most of this situation, something I am not currently able to cope with.

Good times... bad times. We all get both.

Reliable Granny

Whenever I want to find something from the lefties to shred, I can always go to  Granny: Her blog is a target rich environment for such items.

Here's a beaut she just posted:




The above graphic shows that military spending topped both health care and education. It does not include government pensions and social security. That's  sort of a huge omission.

Below is a chart based on actual spending, not one made by some wing nut that doesn't know about social security and government pensions:


 
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/

Health care and pensions totaled 44%, way more than national defense.

For anyone wanting to check out these figures, it will take maybe two minutes on the net.  I often find myself wishing these lefties would take those two minutes and actually verify what they post.

I also wish I would win the lottery.

McDonald's Faces Facts

Reality rearing its ugly head:



From the article:

"With colleges producing more graduates, and youth unemployment at a sky-high 11.5 percent, even landing a job selling Big Macs is getting competitive.
Consider: A job opening at a Massachusetts McDonald's for a full-time cashier requires one to two years experience and a bachelor's degree."

http://washingtonexaminer.com/mcdonalds-want-ad-demands-bachelors-degree-two-years-experience-for-cashier/article/2526145

Total Bull. It has nothing to do with "competition" but everything to do employees that can actually do the job.

We've known for years that the vast majority high school graduates can't do math, read,  or fill out a job application, and that's been the pool of labor McDonald's has been getting it's workforce from.

It now appears that even McDonald's has finally giving up on this ignorant mass of unskilled idiots and turned to the hallowed halls of higher education to find workers.

However, I'm positive that McDonald bigwigs know that hiring college grads for any position is counterproductive(pun intended) because they will spend their waking hours looking for better work, and will be gone the instant something better shows up.

BUT... and it's a big but... MacDonald's is finding out that it takes a college degree with maybe two years experience to run a cash register, because someone with a degree and just one year of experience may not yet have mastered reading and math.

That's how bad the liberals and socialists have ruined our education system.

It's now to the point that even a college degree may not be enough to get a job where once upon a time a clown was one of the higher paid employees, a place where the cash registers have pictures of their products instead of words and numbers.

About all we can do nowadays is shake our heads and walk away.

Of Unicoms And Rainbows

No kidding...

The new Pope seems as far from reality as Pollyanna. Said he:

"Christians must respond to evil with good, taking the cross upon themselves as Jesus did,"

Christians today have forgotten that in the past they were fighters and warriors. They fought as viciously as anyone to survive, defend their church and their beliefs.

Today's Christians have this "turn the other check" and "respond to evil with good" mindset. That can be a good strategy when your enemy has some degree of morals, ethics and honor.

Problem is, those who are in the advanced process of destroying Christianity today have none of those qualities. Every time they attack another foundation of Christianity, they then laugh... as Christians respond with their  "meek as sheep" tactic, mildly protest, retreat from the battle... and lose.

Since Christians today have no stomach for confrontation or conflict and have no real concept of the enemy they face, they lose at every turn, every skirmish, every battle.  They instead sit in their pews on Sunday, mutter a few insincere prayers... and wait for their newly-created "Rapture", which - they now believe -  will save them. Sit on their butts, do nothing.... and then be saved. What's the term? LOLZ.

The Ten Commandments have been stripped from public buildings everywhere.
Nativity scenes during the Christmas holidays have been banned.
Christmas is no longer called Christmas. It's now the Holidays.
No Christan prayers are allowed in schools.
Christan organizations and groups on collage campuses everywhere are scorned and banned.
Easter is no longer a celebration of the Resurrection. It is a chocolate bunny and colored eggs party.

That's just a partial list of lost battles, battles lost by Christians too cowardly - or mislead - to stand up and fight.

What they really needed in a Pope was a man who sees today's world as it really is: A place where you fight tooth and nail for what you believe in, for your family, your heritage, your culture, your race, your nation, your future.  They needed a man who would have come out swinging against those who are leading - or prodding -  the Christians to self-destruction and suicide.

What they got in a Pope is another pacifist that will further the "turn the other cheek" philosophy and perhaps be the final leader of a dying religion.  Lordy lordy... They don't even realize who their real enemy is today.

Christians of all stripes are on the way to going into dustbin of history as the ultimate losers in the game of life, remembered only as a people who would not fight for their own survival.

As for myself, I am not a Christian, I am an agnostic. But I can easily see the value to civilization that a strong religious belief system brings. Admit it or not, Christianity has protected and nurtured western civilization for centuries. I mourn the loss of Christianity to the world for one simple reason:

The coming new world will not be a blue-skied green paradise full of wondrous things and marvelous equality for all people and all things. It  will be a cruel and brutal one, overseen by atheists, ruled by an uncaring and vicious elite,  protected by a massive amoral, unethical military, driving the masses to slavery and poverty.

I truly hope it is still far enough away that I will not live to see it. But the signs are ominous... it's very close.

"Good Luck, Francis."

More like an epitaph than anything else.

Rand Paul On A Stupid Pill Diet


Yes. Absolutely. Beyond a shadow of a doubt.


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has emerged as the key advocate for secure borders, keeping to the rules and an organized handling of the millions of illegal aliens now inside the United States says there is a clear goal that Americans should have for the newcomers: Make them taxpayers.
“What I’m saying is let’s get them work visas, normalize them, tax them, make them taxpayers,”

Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/rand-paul-wants-illegals-turned-into-taxpayers/#3osLYwl3oqK4fkuG.99

11 million taxpayers? Paul is out of his tree here. Those 11 million are ignorant, uneducated, low-wage grunts that will never pay a penny in taxes, citizens or not. They are from the bottom rung of Mexican society. They can't even get jobs in Mexico. So making them citizens will not change a thing when it comes to tax revenue.

I'm positive Paul knows this. So what's his game here?

Do they sneak stupid pills into a Republicans food and drink there in Congress?

Nobody in Congress can actually believe that those 11 million fence jumpers will ever pay a damned cent in taxes.

So... either Rand Paul is indeed on a stupid pill diet, or he is up to something.

And that something can't be good.




Obama's Civilian Army Continues To Grow



Perhaps a vehicle soon to be in your near future?
Bis Sis is sending them somewhere...

Footage of hundreds of armored trucks, similar to ones reportedly purchased recently by the Department Of Homeland Security has appeared online, raising more questions over their intended use.
The video was uploaded to YouTube last week by a user who stated that it was shot in the middle of the desert between Hackberry and Peach Springs, Arizona.
It shows hundreds of military style trucks loaded on to a train, presumably in the process of being delivered domestically for law enforcement or military purposes.

Watch the video:

http://www.infowars.com/video-hundreds-of-dhs-armored-trucks-on-the-move/

Why do I conclude these vehicles are for the civilian army Obama called for? The one he said needed to be as large and as well equipped as the United States Army?

Because they are not headed for Iraq or Afghanistan. Obama is removing our forces from both places. They are not headed for Israel.  Israel gets Abrams tanks and supersonic jet fighters, not MPAV's with gun ports meant for crowd control.

The train in the video was in the middle of the Arizona desert.

Just another bit of data to add to the growing pile of evidence that we are headed for somewhere we won't like being.

Even the brainwashed, blindered non-questioning liberal has got to start wondering what the real end game is, what all this massive government internal buildup really means... and who the intended targets are.

To me, it looks like brutal and deadly crowd control events are being anticipated by our government in the near future.

Avoid the big cities.They may soon be death traps for the unprepared.

A point:

The article I pointed to above was listed today on the DRUDGE Report. That means it will be seen my millions, far more readers than any of us could reach.

That's a good thing. Knowledge about what our government is doing is always a good thing.

Granny - Round Three


Dear Ole Granny - bless her leftist-loving heart - never at a loss for words, also never has a problem posting anything deceptive, misleading, or outright wrong.  Peruse the following:


Impressive. Too bad it's not true.

Maybe Granny got her numbers from this place that calls itself "Clean Technica":

http://cleantechnica.com/2012/05/25/2224-gw-pvsolar-output-germany-new-record/

Typical of your average tree-hugging propagandist,  the author of this site managed to move the decimal point a few zeros to the right. ( I know, math is hard)

The charts and and the article shows and says the actual output was  22.240MW in one hour.  MW means MegaWatt, or a million watts.. A gigawatt - a billion Watts - is orders of magnitude larger than a megawatt. The claimed 22 gigawatts  in one hour is wildly inaccurate, and false.

From Wikipedia:

Germany is the world's top photovoltiacs (PV) installer, with a solar PV capacity as of December 2012 of more than 32.3 gigawatts (GW) The German new solar PV installations increased by about 7.6 GW in 2012, and solar PV provided 18 TWh (billion kilowatt houts) of electricity in 2011, about 3% of total electricity.

Now, how much power would 20 nuclear plants generate?

Big plant? Small plant? How many reactors? Efficient American plant?  Or piece- of crap Iranian plant?

Let's ask somebody that actually knows the answers,  The U. S. Energy Information Administration:

http://www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.cfm?id=104&t=3

Aww, come on Bob, don't be such a party pooper! Quit trying to use facts! That's not fair!

Quoting:

"In 2011, the "average" nuclear power plant in the United States generated about 12.2 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh). There were 65 nuclear power plants with 104 operating nuclear reactors that generated a total of 790 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh), or slightly more than 19% of the nation's electricity."

Hmmm....

Twenty of those would then produce 244 billion kilowatt hours/year. That's 244TWh, or 244 TerraWatt hours.  Germany's solar plants produced 18TWh, or 18 TerraWatt hours, the equivalent of one and a half nuke plants, not twenty.

Point of interest: Germany used 544.5 billion kilowatt hours in 2012. America's 64 nuke plants - which provided 19% our our electrical needs - would have provided around 45% of Germany's needs. (That's almost 99% to you liberals)

Germany's  total solar output - which provided about 3% of their needs - would have provided America with less than 2% of our needs.

That 3% translates as "almost all" in the mind the civilization-hating treehugger, because, well, 22 gigawatts is such a big, hard to understand number, but surely must be almost all the electricity in the world!

Liberals and Progressives just can't seen to grasp the scale of such things, or get the math right. But what the hell, they've never used facts as a weapon. They can't.

The facts would destroy their silly little world of unicorns, pink ponies and imaginary goddesses like Gaia.

It's like Mark Twain once said:

It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them they have been fooled.

Today's Liberals and leftists prove that beyond a shadow of a doubt. They may be college trained, college educated and/or college brainwashed. They may have IQ's several standard deviations above the norm. But they were never taught to think, so they don't. They just parrot the stuff they've been trained to like.

Never look for truth or accuracy from these folks. They never check their claims, which means you should - always.

Then remember what Mark Twain said, so don't waste the effort.

Cyprus



And the winner is....

We've all heard about it, the EU demanding that Cyprus bank accounts be plundered, raided, taxed - whatever you wish to call it - to help save the bankers.

Reality check: Who really gives a damn about Cyprus other than some Russian criminals?

Nobody.

The real goal in this little exercise on Cyprus is to study the American reaction to the idea, because the real target is plundering the 50 trillion in assets of the American retirement funds.

Raiding bank accounts is small potatoes by comparison.

If Americans sit idly by while the EU plunders Europe, the next target is the real plum, our retirement accounts, your 401K. You can't just run to the bank and pull it out like the money in your checking/savings accounts.

The retirement assets are sitting ducks... Multi-trillion dollar sitting ducks.

Another reason why the DHS has bought 1.5 billion rounds of ammo, those 2,700 MPAV's, built all those camps and bought all those coffins... to make sure they can get away with it.

One may ask - if they end up destroying the value of world's currencies, won't they end up with mountains of toilet paper? They would - if they kept the paper money. Who do you think is buying up all the worlds gold? In multi-ton quantities? They don't give a rats hind end about the paper stuff... They are using it to buy GOLD, silver, diamonds, land, developed properties, you know... real assets

Duh.

There's only a few of those despicable cretins worldwide. They will, given the chance, plunder and destroy everything. Compared to them, Al Quaeda is less than a buzzing gnat. Why can't Obama  use a few of our drones on them?

The fool could save the world. but he won't. As they say- He's their bitch.

The Coming Confrontation

Take a look at the below real-life photo:

This is not a  made for TV drama. But it is a preview.. and a warning.

The photo shows a really angry man - an ordinary civilian - facing the reality of a governments only solution to a disastrous mess it has created: A line of men protected by body armor, face shields, assault weapons, night sticks, tear gas,  even tanks, and a shiny, pretty badge that allows them to do anything - legal or illegal - it matters not.

And yet, these "honorable" government agents are afraid to show their faces. They hide behind their black masks. They live in fear for themselves from the very people they are pretending to protect and serve. They will gas you, beat you, shoot you, knock your teeth out, kick you when you're down, and will later laugh and joke about it all with their fellow black-clad "men of pride and honor" about how they served it up big time to the "perps".

You know this to be true, you have seen it on the news countless times.

But they haven't the courage to show you who they are. They know - deep down inside - if the public knows who they are: Knows their face, knows their name, knows where they live - their power will be gone... and the fear they try to instill will turn to great anger.

This sort of thing is indeed coming to a city near you... and soon.

Read the following:

http://investmentwatchblog.com/mark-levin-government-is-simulating-the-collapse-of-our-financial-system-the-collapse-of-our-society-and-the-potential-for-widespread-violence/

The government is preparing for this very thing.

In the photo above, it's one man against a line of heavily-armed and armored pawns of an out-of-control rogue government. It could have been taken  anywhere in the world today - Greece, France, Italy, England, America - anyplace where the government has ruined their respective nation, pillaged their people's money, destroyed their assets, and are now terrified of the inevitable consequences: The coming day of reckoning.

When that day arrives, that same line of of G-men protected by body armor, face shields, assault weapons, night sticks, tear gas, even tanks, all with a shiny, pretty badge given them by a politician that claims they can do anything - legal or illegal - will be there, ready to do what they have been trained to do - beat, kill, main - whatever it takes to protect not the people, not the nation, but the politician who empowered them..

But when that moment comes, they won't be facing one lone, unarmed angry man. They will be facing hundreds of thousands of angry men, men who will no longer back down one inch, men who will no longer confront that line of black-clad and black facemasked G-men unarmed.

Do I want this to happen? No freaking way. The civilization we have built, everything we have worked for, will be gone in an instant. But do I see it coming? Yes. The rule of law will vanish because, when push comes to shove, the government does not have the manpower to maintain order... not even close. Every street in every major city will become a no mans land, every small hamlet and town a death trap for outsiders.

How long will it last?

Not hours, not days. It will last weeks. Months. Perhaps years.

Have your camera handy. The photos you take will be epic.

Take one last look at the above photo. I would not be a bit surprised if that G-man on the left was about to mess up his black britches... He's facing a real man who isn't a bit afraid of him. But if Mr. G-man was thinking he was too tough and too well trained to be afraid, then he's a fool.
