Racsism effectively defeated?

.
The powers that be at the RNC have decided to meet fire with fire. The have elected Michael Steele, an African-American from Maryland / D.C., as the new head of the RNC. In doing so, they have effectively defeated racism. How else could Steele get to such a position?
.
Personally I could care less about the color of his skin. It's his political leanings I'm interested in. He's the direction THEY chose, but is he "right" enough for the party? Steele is fairly moderate in his politics. Probably nip and tuck with McCain.
.
It is, IMHO, not the way to go.
.
I said just the other day, we need a new, better party for conservatives and libertarians in this country. The election of Steele proves that the RNC just doesn't get it!!

Talk About Change

Have you noticed recently how some highly regarded and knowledgeable people are starting to come forward saying (publicly) that global warming is nothing but a massive scam? While it's true that many highly respected scientists have been telling us this for some time now, it's only recently that their views have been allowed to be openly discussed. I've even heard some of the cretins in the MSM actually making fun of the whole GW notion! (and no, it wasn't Fox. They're way too PC for that) Could it be that some minds are starting to be changed by logic and common sense?

Now my question is, how does a fat, greedy, lying, con artist give back a Nobel Prize that he accepted, knowing full-well the whole thing is a fraud? If this fat pig was a Republican, wouldn't everyone be howling for a congressional investigation? But instead of an investigation, congress is giving this con artist BILLIONS of our tax dollars to play with!

"The 'No Shit Sherlock' File"

.
WASHINGTON (AP) - After crushing defeats in back-to-back elections, the top Senate Republican warned Thursday that the GOP risks remaining out of power in the White House and Congress unless it better explains its core principles to woo one-time faithful and new loyalists.

"The results of the two recent elections are real, and so are the obstacles we face as a party," Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told the Republican National Committee on Thursday. "My concern is that unless we do something to adapt, our status as a minority party may become too pronounced for an easy recovery."

"The situation is challenging, but it's far from irreversible," McConnell added, a dash of optimism in an otherwise stark assessment of where the Republican Party went wrong as he provided a road map for how it can right itself.

.
I saw some talking head on Cavuto this afternoon addressing this. He said that 68% of new voters and first time voters, took the Democrats to the White House. (again, one for the Sherlock File) But when Cavuto asked him how to get voters back, he said that the Conservatives needed to be better at things like Facebook, Twitter and Blogging the issues.
.
I was SCREAMING at the TV. (scared poor Turtle to death he asked me if I was mad at that man on TV, but being older, you know the answer)
.
I have already written to my elected worms, and told them going BACK to sound conservative principles would be good way to start. We need to all do this. What we really need is a Bull Moose type party to shake like minded folks together.
.
I'm calmed down now, but this idiocy must cease and we have got to get a strong message to our elected or soon to be elected worms, that we don't want compromise, we want conservatism!!

Words Of Wisdom

What are they buying?
By Thomas Sowell

Everyone is talking about how much money the government is spending, but very little attention is being paid to where they are spending it or what they are buying with it.

The government is putting money into banks, even when the banks don't want it, in hopes that the banks will put it into circulation. But the latest statistics shows that banks are lending even less money now than they were before the government dumped all that cash on them.
Even if it had worked, putting cash into banks, in hopes that they would put it into circulation, seems a rather roundabout way of doing things, especially when the staggering sums of money involved are being justified as an "emergency" measure.

Spending money for infrastructure is another time-consuming way of dealing with what is called an immediate crisis. Infrastructure takes forever to plan, debate, and go through all sorts of hearings and adjudications, before getting approval to build from all the regulatory agencies involved.

Out of $355 billion newly appropriated, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that only $26 billion will be spent this fiscal year and only $110 billion by the end of 2010.
Using long, drawn-out processes to put money into circulation to meet an emergency is like mailing a letter to the fire department to tell them that your house is on fire.

If you cut taxes tomorrow, people would have more money in their next paycheck, and it would probably be spent by the time they got that paycheck, through increased credit card purchases beforehand. If all this sound and fury in Washington was about getting an economic crisis behind us, tax cuts could do that a lot faster. None of this is rocket science. And Washington politicians are not all crazy, even if sometimes it looks that way. Often, what they say makes no sense because what they claim to be doing is not what they are actually doing.

No matter how many times President Barack Obama tells us that these "extraordinary times" call for "swift action," the kind of economic policies he is promoting take effect very slowly, no matter how quickly the legislation is rushed through Congress. It is the old Army game of hurry up and wait. If the Beltway politicians aren't really trying to solve this crisis as quickly as they could, what are they trying to do?

One important clue may be a recent statement by President Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel, that "A crisis is a terrible thing to waste." This is the kind of cynical revelation that sometimes slips out, despite all the political pieties and spin. Crises have long been seen as great opportunities to expand the federal government's power while the people are too scared to object and before any opposition can get organized. That is why there is such haste to do things that will take effect slowly.

What are the Beltway politicians buying with all the hundreds of billions of dollars they are spending? They are buying what politicians are most interested in— power.

In the name of protecting the taxpayers' investment, they are buying the power to tell General Motors how to make cars, banks how to bank and, before it is all over with, all sorts of other people how to do the work they specialize in, and for which members of Congress have no competence, much less expertise.

This administration and Congress are now in a position to do what Franklin D. Roosevelt did during the Great Depression of the 1930s— use a crisis of the times to create new institutions that will last for generations.

To this day, we are still subsidizing millionaires in agriculture because farmers were having a tough time in the 1930s. We have the Federal National Mortgage Association ("Fannie Mae") taking reckless chances in the housing market that have blown up in our faces today, because FDR decided to create a new federal housing agency in 1938.

Who knows what bright ideas this administration will turn into permanent institutions for our children and grandchildren to try to cope with?

Democrats Launch Anti-Free Speech Campaign
Democrats Against Rush Limbaugh
.
(CNSNews.com) – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail. The petition includes a 19-second sound byte of Limbaugh, saying, “If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to this guy, say ‘okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.’”
On Tuesday, in a note at the top of his Web site , Limbaugh responded to the Democrats' petition: "I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP? "
.
I'm not a huge Limbaugh fan, (he's too full of himself) but I do find him greatly entertaining. He also has good insight due to his hard working research team. But love Rush or hate Rush - you must be absolutely sickened by the democrat's (and Hussein's) responses. If the democrat party doesn't want to hear Rush, all they have to do is turn off their radios. But that's not good enough! They want to regulate what EVERYONE listens to! If they don't want to hear Rush's message, they don't want anyone to hear it. Typical Nazi-like tactics for the liberal hate-machine.
.

Snob Attack!!




B. Hussein 'Mussolini' Obama

.
This is just another typical Obama picture I captured from a "news" story today. Another very typical "snob looking down his nose at his subjects" pose that we've all seen in the past. We saw fewer of them leading up to the election, but now it seems he and the "news" media don't feel they need to hide it any longer. We'll be been seeing this pose more and more. He certainly has taken on the unmistakable 'Mussolini' look, has he not?

.

What a dipshit.

Zombie Attack!


Someone reprogrammed two city construction road signs near the University of Texas early Monday morning in an attempt to warn Austin of an imminent zombie attack.
Messages that typically alert Lamar Boulevard drivers to a detour for Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard splashed several warnings like “Caution! Zombies Ahead!” and “Nazi Zombies! Run!!!”
Well... The "unofficial City motto" IS "Keep Austin Weird." I suppose someone was just doing their part!

Football, Drag Queens and P.F. Changs

.
I know that the slow economy exists because it gets mentioned in EVERY news story. I've seen at least a half-dozen saying that ticket sales, airline costs and hotel prices are down at the Super Bowl, because the economy is down.
.
Economy down, of course, is code for Bush is gone, but keep the blame piled high.
.
But back to the Stupid Bowl coverage. I guess it never occurred to anyone that interest is down because of the teams involved? Pittsburgh? Phoenix? Not exactly power houses in the 21st Century.
.
But to make matters worse, the good folks from the 51st State, Mexico, aren't really in the swing of the seriousness of the event. At Media Day yesterday, Joel Bengoa, from Telemundo, showed up in drag and handed out chocolates to the players.
.
Imagine an American sportscaster, let's say Bob Costas or better still Johnny Bench and Joe Garagiola, showing up at a Mexico vs Argentina, World Cup Finals Match, dressed like Carmen Miranda.
.
There'd be rioting in all, but one, of the worlds nations and sanctions at the U.N.
.
I can't get ramped up over the game either, but I haven't switched to women's skivvies yet. Then again, the players evidently aren't psyched up either. After all, Pittsburgh? Phoenix? Do they care if they beat each other? Frankly, some of them would rather go out for faux Chinese food.

He's Baaaaaaak !

While most of us are freezing our asses off, fat Al (we've only got days to live) Gore is going back before congress to peddle his Twilight Zone weather scam. Fat Al knows that since the govt. is now in the hands of the far-Left, this may be his best shot to get some laws passed and force us to go back to living in the 18th century, so long as he can make a ton of money from it. You know, candles, horse and buggy, etc. What fat Al and his goof-ball, socialist friends would like is for all of us to live like the Amish, while he's flying around visiting all his mansions in his private jet!

Now i have nothing against the Amish. In fact, i think their lifestyle is rather cool, and i love their homemade pies. But that's their choice, not mine. They like a horse and buggy. I like my buggy to have about 400 horses, under the hood that is. If the fat moron finds a willing audience in congress, we're all in big trouble!

How Have We Lasted This Long

With the way things are going lately, i don't think we'll have to wait for Yomama and his Leftist congress to dismantle our intelligence capabilities, since they seem to be self-destructing. The other day, there was a story about a USB Flash Drive, (a portable storage device for your computer) being sold to someone at a thrift shop i believe it was. The device contained a ton of top secret govt. information!

Now it seems, we have another "slip-up" which could cost Americans their lives and seriously endanger the security of our country. Yes kids, it's your government at work. Maybe we should change the national motto from, In God We Trust to FUBAR!

Aww, We're Sorry :(

What do you do when, as the new leader of the "free world", you get your first chance to speak to an enemy who has vowed to erase your entire nation from the gene pool? Why you apologize and tell them we're just dictators! You also make them understand that your foreign policy, (like that of peanut-brain Carter) will be based on weakness, even though, since you are connected to this enemy by blood line, you know the one thing they hate above all else, is weakness.

But, you can remind them of all the wonderful things you're doing, even though you only just started. You promise to continue welfare payments (oops, i mean foreign aid) to the entire planet. You are in the process of gutting America's intelligence agencies, ala the Clintons. You will put a very short leash on America's military. And although Americans are having their homes taken away from them, you will use their tax money to fund abortions all over the world! Nevelle Chamberlan (sp.) would be proud.

He's not just the new president, he's a glaring reminder of just how weak, mindless, and dumb the majority of Americans are. And he's just getting started! But that's just my opinion...

Poetic Justice?

Long is listed in stable condition at Rex Hospital.

Long was outside the office of state Rep. Cary Allred, R-Alamance, at the Legislative Office Building when he collapsed Jan. 21.

Long, 68, served as insurance commissioner for 24 years before choosing not to seek re-election last fall.

Google in control

Google's Rumored GDrive May 'Kill' the PC

The Google drive would shift away from Microsoft Window's operating system, in favor of "cloud computing," where storage and processing is done in data centers. Users would no longer have to rely on their computers' powerful hard drives.

Yeah - right. And users will no longer have control of their personal data, either - Big Google-Brother will have complete control of all data. Sheesh - and liberals were SCREAMING about intercept of terrorist cell phone calls as "trampling of personal rights". You'll not hear a peep from those hypocrites about this.

Who is a fascist?

Fascism is an authoritarian nationalist ideology focused on solving economic, political, and social problems that its supporters see as causing national decline or decadence. Fascist governments typically seek to prepare a nation for armed conflict with other nations, to defend itself or to expand its state to allow for the growth of a nation. Fascists aim to create a single-party state in which the government is led by a dictator who seeks unity by requiring individuals to subordinate self-interest to the collective interest of the nation or a race.

Fascist governments permanently forbid and suppress all criticism and opposition to the government and the fascist movement. Fascist movements oppose any ideology or political system that gives direct political power to people as individuals rather than as a collective through the state (liberalism, democracy, individualism); is deemed detrimental to national identity and unity (class conflict, communism, internationalism, laissez-faire capitalism); may oppose major changes to government and other institutions that it proposes (conservatism) and that undermine the military strength and military ambitions of the nation (pacifism).

We'll see.

'Giving' is down

Up to 100,000 Nonprofits Could Close in Bad Economy
Saturday, January 24, 2009
***
Today, the U.S. boasts more than one million nonprofits, up from about 774,000 ten years ago. Their biggest donations come from corporations, foundations and the ultra-wealthy. Many have been hit hard by the deepening recession. A drop in charitable contributions could shutter as many as 100,000 nonprofits over the next year, says Paul Light, a professor at New York University's Wagner School of Public Service.

***

My Comments:
And when the Obamunist attack on the rich begins in earnest, these donations will fall further. Of course, the Obamunists will step in (or attempt to step in) with the cash they harvest from those who once supported the Nonprofits. The Nonprofits will then become dependent on government rather that the private sector.

This is exactly the way liberal democrats work, and the way they’ve always worked: Giving government the responsibilities of the individual, and forcefully taking from the individual the funding the free-sector would have given anyway. This way, socialists appear to be saviors.

But the fact is, because the lazy liberals in government are far less efficient (bright) than their counterparts in the free-sector, the waste is abhorrent, and everything collapses due to apathy.

Never forget: Socialism breeds apathy. It has been proven over and over and over again for thousands of years that socialism doesn’t work. But silly liberals (especially Obama/Pelosi/Reed) don’t “do” history – it interferes with their power-greed.

And one last thing – “New York University's Wagner School of Public Service” – just the name sounds like a breeding ground of do-nothing waste meant for people who have never and will never produce or trade a single widget in their leaching lives. Public service (helping your neighbor) is something that comes naturally to a conservative base. But liberals, being the cretins they are, have to actually be taught to serve others. To them, there is nothing 'natural' about it.


Absolutely disgusting.

Artist creates messianic parade as 'adorers' wave palm fronds

DES MOINES, Iowa – Amid the pomp, circumstance and celebration of welcoming a new president, an artist in Iowa created an inaugural parade sure to draw attention, even hundreds of miles from Washington, D.C.: Barack Obama, riding on a donkey, complete with waving palm fronds and "Secret Service" escort.
Liberals are truly mentally deficient to allow themselves to be deceived so easily. As has been said many times; in November 2008 the USA demonstrated to the world that it is, in fact, a nation compiled of a majority of drooling fools.

You're The President? No, I'm The Boss!

Many of us have been complaining about our two-party system of government for a long time. It's a system that's clearly designed to keep new people, fresh minds, and good ideas out of the power structure. Now that the Republicans have been politically banished to some irrelevant status, (thanks to their weakness) we're down to one party. The Demoncrats are in control and they have no qualms about letting everyone know it.

I saw Nancy Botox on TV today, after she was leaving a meeting on this new $850 BILLION welfare handout. She was asked why the Republicans present weren't given a chance to offer their amendments to the bill. She "glared" at the reporter and said, "it's our bill and we have all the votes we need". She said this while Yomama was at the White House telling Republicans that they must get along with Demoncrats, or else! Is it just me, or is "our" new govt. starting to sound a lot like Hugo Chavez's government?

LAGOS (Reuters) – Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery.
Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323.
"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.

Apparently, the EPA along with the Sierra Club is claiming the sky is falling because sea levels are up an inch or 2. They say this is leading to the destruction of the barrier islands, which would allow a Katrina-like hit in NJ adding that the problems with the barrier islands down there are what caused Katrina to flood New Orleans. I though New Orleans flooded because of levy breaks. Its amazing how fast history gets re-written around there.

The producers, produce nothing, they prey on the dreams and hopes of people who are usually more suited to asking if I want to Super Size, than they are to headlining in Vegas or at your local sports / entertainment venue. The judges, HAH, judge people who are often much more talented than they themselves are. Given the panel, that isn't a very high bar. It's sad, sad, sad IMHO.
.
Having said that, Variety Magazine's raw numbers from last night show 'merican Idle drew more watchers than Obama. Is anyone surprised?

'merican Idle is appealing to the same, know nothing, do nothing, what can you do for me, poliutics is confusing, GWB sucks 'cause Paris Hilton said so crowd, that doesn't bother to vote.

A Very Troubling Story

This comes from my home state of NJ. Apparently some boob made a Facebook page for himself with a lot of racist comedy on it. Maybe its in poor taste, but the rest of the story is insane. I mean not only did he lose his job but he is being investigated to see if posting that stuff counts as a hate crime! RIP Freedom of Speech.

Middle East "Peace"?

ARABIC PEACE
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler
Thursday, 08 January 2009

No word is more overused and has less meaning than "peace" regarding any discussion of Arabs and Israel. One primary reason why "peace in the Middle East" (if you Google that phrase you'll get 1.5 million hits) is so elusive is because there is no word in Arabic that means the same thing as the English word "peace," or its equivalent in other European languages. So as Israel is trying to put an end to Hamas terrorism and the world media whimpers for "peace in Gaza," we should get a clear understanding of the Arabic words - there are three of them - translated as "peace."

It's an understanding that Hillary's husband lacked when brokering the Oslo Accords of 1993, that Hillary's predecessor at the State Department lacked in her endlessly pointless efforts, that Hillary's new boss will lack when he instructs her to negotiate an Arab-Israeli "peace treaty." None of the three Arabic words for "peace" mean what we mean - but one of them could come close if nailed down explicitly. They are salaam, hudna, and suhl.

Salaam is the peace of submission. It's the drawn out pronunciation of "slm" in "Islam" (written Arabic has no vowels), the Arabic word for submission and obedience, and in "Moslem" or "Muslim," the Arabic word for "one who submits." There is peace, salaam, among Moslems when they submit to Allah and the teachings of the Koran. There is peace, salaam, between Moslems and kafirs, infidels or unbelievers, only when the latter submit to the rule of the former. In other words, salaam, Moslem peace, is not the absence of violence as it is for us, but the absence of disobedience. Just like it was for the Communists. In Lenin's words: "As long as capitalism and (Soviet) socialism exist, we cannot live in peace. In the end, one or the other will triumph - a funeral dirge will be sung over the Soviet republic or over world capitalism."[1] Or, as the Soviet Military Encyclopedia stated it: "Peace is impossible without Soviet socialism. A truly lasting peace is impossible and cannot be achieved without a proletarian revolution."[2]

Compare Lenin's words to the words of Allah, as dictated to Mohammed in the Koran: "Fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them. Seize them, confine them, lie in wait for them in every place of ambush. (Sura - verse - 9:5) Believers! Do not befriend your fathers or your brothers or your sons if they choose unbelief in preference to belief in Allah. (Sura 9:22) Fight those who do not believe in Allah, those who do not forbid what Allah and his apostle have forbidden, fight them until they pay tribute to the believers and are utterly subdued. (Sura 9:29) Mohammed is Allah's apostle. Those who follow him are merciless towards the unbelievers but kind to each other. (Sura 48:29) O Unbelievers! We renounce you. Enmity and hatred will reign between us until you believe in Allah alone." (Sura 60:4) Just as there could not be peace with the Soviets until we sang a funeral dirge over the Soviet Union, there cannot be peace with Moslems who believe that salaam requires Islam to be a religion of the sword.

Hudna, the second Arabic word translated in English as "peace," means cease-fire, a temporary truce. It is a tactical, temporary break in hostilities, giving Moslems time to re-organize, re-arm, then renew the Jihad against the kafirs when they can be most caught off-guard. Whenever Hamas offers Israel what the media calls a "peace proposal," you can be sure the Arabic word Hamas uses is hudna.

Suhl, the third Arabic term for "peace," is the most interesting, the one we must insist on Arabs using, the one they always avoid and refuse to use. Suhl means reconciliation. The Encyclopedia of Islam describes sulh as a concept of Islamic sharia law: "The purpose of sulh is to end conflict and hostility among believers so that they may conduct their relationships in peace and amity"....In Islamic law, sulh is a form of contract (aqd), legally binding on both the individual and community levels.[3] Note that it applies only between believers. Once again, it's deuces wild with unbelievers. Nonetheless, insistence on using the word sulh in any Arab-Israeli agreement, putting it in writing in the Arabic version of the documents that this agreement is not a hudna and not a salaam, but a sulh, makes it a legally binding aqd, even though one of the signatories is not Moslem.

That these words matter is shown by Arab resistance to signing an agreement that makes it a binding contract using sulh. Anwar Sadat, for example, in signing the Camp David Accords in 1978 insisted on "salaam" and refused to have the word "sulh" in the Arabic version of the document. The absence of reconciliation meant that Egypt could abandon the peace agreement if and when circumstances changed. And salaam it has been, never sulh, in any agreement, attempted or signed, ever since: Oslo 1993, Camp David II 2000, George Bush's "Roadmap for Peace" initiated in 2002, Condi Rice's treadmill "shuttle diplomacy" culminating in the non-accomplishment of the Annapolis Conference in November 2007.

At this moment (1/08), Euroweenies are clamoring for a "cease-fire," a hudna that will prevent Israel from destroying Hamas. What is needed is a sulh imposed upon a defeated Hamas. The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not one between Jews and Arabs. It is one between civilization and barbarism. President George Bush has clearly chosen to be on the side of civilization, and has refused to back down for placing the responsibility of this war in Gaza on Hamas. Yet not even he has insisted his diplomats from Condi on down demand that any mention of "peace" in any negotiation with Arabs regarding Israel be translated as "sulh," with no phony substitutes. This is clearly an opportunity for Mr. Bush's successor - and for Condi's. Will they have the brains to comprehend the opportunity and the fortitude to take advantage of it - to impose what could be called the Test of Sulh on all Middle East peace negotiations from now on? If you believe that, you probably also believe in the Easter Bunny.

Especially now that Obama will name Dennis Ross as his envoy to the Middle East. For his work in this position for Bush I and Clinton, the media calls him "the architect of the peace process." But as you now know, there is no such thing as "the peace process." It might as well be called "the gleendon process," gleendon being a gibberish word I made up. Ross has never in his long career (he's now 60) shown any indication that he understands the difference between the meaning of "peace" in English" and that in Arabic, nor ever imposed the Test of Sulh in his negotiations. So he will waste his time as he has always done.

Thus Israel will remain on its treadmill struggling to survive and denounced for doing so. The only real difference now is the current Arab fantasy that Obama will take their side against Israel once he's in office on January 20 - and that fantasy's rapid crash into bitter disillusionment when he doesn't. Not that he'll stoutly take Israel's side either. Rather, his ineffectuality will make him increasingly irrelevant to both Israel and the Arabs. Which means there's going to be a lot more war between them in 2009 and lot less peace, in Arabic or in English...

So proud of myself

I was reading a bit of CNN during my lunch today, and after reading a story about Obama’s Inauguration, I was silly enough to read the comments section.

One comment started with the very outrageous, almost offensive sentence:

“THIS IS MOST AWESOME THING IN OUR HISTORY"

And yes, it was in all-caps. The entire posting was in all-caps. It went on to describe a process through which this person had written a song to the tune of “Awesome God” (you know, “our God is an awesome God, he reigns from heaven above…”) which was in praise to Barack Obama. As you all know, I am quite perplexed about why everyone is so taken by this guy, as he has yet to do anything, ever, in his entire career. Not just anything GOOD, mind you, but ANYTHING AT ALL. So, I drafted this reply and posted it to the CNN board. I am sure it won’t be posted, as CNN typically won’t post anything “controversial” (in their eyes) on their comments pages, but here it is, in it’s glory:

Surely, you must be joking. You think the inauguration of our next president, something which has occurred 44 times over the past 230 years with almost tedious inevitability, eclipses the winning of our independence against all odds, the freeing of the slaves, our victory over evil in WWII, the fall of the Berlin wall, our landing on the moon, and countless other great things we, as a nation, have done over the years?

This is mundane. This is the inauguration of a president, and nothing more. I am afraid that folks who are writing songs for this moment, who are fainting at the mere sight of their almost God-like figure of a president, will be greatly disappointed when President Obama turns out to be exactly what he is:

Just another president.

Even if he is a GREAT president, and for our sakes, I hope that he is (though I have my reservations) so the heck what? He is not a god, and all of the evils and inequities in this world that you may think he will cure will still be there, even after 8 years. I promise.

Relax a bit, stop writing sonnets in His praise, and try cautious optimism on for size. The fall won't be so far when you realize the inevitable truths: that Obama is just a man, and a politician at that.

I thought it was a clever, respectful, and insightful response to such an outrageous and patently offensive claim that the election of Barack Obama as POTUS is the greatest thing we’ve ever done. Tell that to a veteran of the Normandy invasion. My guess is that you’ll receive a much-deserved smack in the head.

I'm confused.......

The Governor of Illinois was actually impeached by the Illinois house because he is under investigation of trying to "sell" Obama's senate seat. Blago was asking for a job in the new administration or cash for his re-election campaign.

Now the Governor of New York has to replace Hillary. The leading contender is Caroline Kennedy. She is promising, that if appointed, she will bring Obama to NY to campaign for the Governor's election and her election in 2010. She is also promising the weight and financial backing of the Kennedy Political machine to help him get elected in 2010.

What is the difference???

what the ????




think Obama will apologize for his Chief of Staff saying goodbye to Bush?

IMHO

20 January, 2009 the day America ceased to exist. At least the America I grew up in.
The America where people took care of themselves and their families rather queue up with their hand out.

The America where as lad I could sling my .22 rifle and ride my bicycle to the rifle range, and no one gave it a seconds thought.

The America where self respect was earned through hard work and setbacks, rather than self esteem being handed out for being politically correct.

The America where one chose their own words, rather than choosing from a menu of approved words.

The America where "everybody" received a pocket knife for his eighth birthday.

The America where EVERYONE stood for the Colors and the National Anthem.

The America where two kids could duke it out and not be expelled from school.

The America where we faced down Russian nukes, rather than negotiate for "peace".

The America where immigrants wanted to be AMERICANS rather than hyphens.

The America where freedom of thought, freedom of speech and freedom of action were paramount, rather than afterthoughts.

For the next four years this country is going to experience a wave of politically correct, leftist assaults on all that makes America great. United we stand, divided we go to the re-education camps.

I'll be cracking a bottle of Bourbon and throwing the cap away to commune with the spirit of America past...

Don't Feed The Trolls

The evolution of the Internet troll was a slow process which began as computer users started to more widely adopt the Internet. At first, the term referred merely to someone who was “trolling” for a response or opinion, in the same way that fishing boats cast out large nets to troll for a catch. Over time, trolls grew more aggressive, and the term began to be used specifically to refer to someone irritating or hurtful. In this sense, a troll could be compared to the nasty creatures of Scandinavian mythology which are also known as trolls.

There are a number of different types of trolls. In the most classic case, a troll harasses an Internet community for a few weeks, posting contradictory opinions or statements on bulletin boards in an attempt to stimulate a response. Internet trolls are differentiated from people who genuinely wish to present a different viewpoint by their attitudes and aggressiveness; their goal is not to discuss a situation, but to frustrate the members of a discussion board. They often use fallacious arguments or attack the users of a site when they attempt to defend themselves from the troll's activities.

Sunset Wars



C-Bug and I have an on-going "battle" - O'ahu sunsets vs. Texas sunsets and we exchange pictures regularly. Alas - all of my sunsets look the same.
Above is 5 minutes ago - 6:10 pm HST. - the view sitting at this very computer - the last sunset in the good old US 0f A. I posted it just to make those of you in places "less hospitable" jealous.

To ALL of my friends and neighbors - EAT ME! :-)

Nostalgia – a Break from the Coronation of 'The One'

Hi Boys & girls, friends & neighbors. Forget the Big Empty Zero for a while.

I was just watching the History Channel (all the other channels are blocked on my TV) and on Modern Marvels they had a short piece on the “resurgence” of vinyl albums. (You know – as in music.) I did a quick internet search, and sure enough, The History Channel isn’t the only one reporting on this phenomenon, as evidenced by this recent Time article.

I still have a working turntable integrated into my stereo system (with a stylus replaced as late as 2003). I commented in another thread that I thought I still had a “Big 10 inch” of Klaatu. I’m certain I also still have ‘Dark Side of the Moon’, ‘Tres Hombres’, ‘Outlaws’, and ‘Led Zeppelin IV’. I have about 100 lbs of albums ranging from Wayland Jennings to the Beatles and everything in between. Deep Purple, Lynard Skynard (pre-crash), and Grand Funk Railroad; not to mention Bad Company, Three Dog Night (Jeremiah was a bullfrog), and a heaping helping of Uriah Heap and the Steve Miller Band.

I think I’ll be breaking those boxes open on my next trip home to Austin. It will be worth every second. I hope my neighbors don’t call the police – my old turntable hooks into a system that will vibrate the entire neighborhood!

Helping those who choose to not help themselves

Evil has overtaken Europe many, many times. Evil has worn many faces over the years, but Europe has never been immune to it. They’ve become accustomed to it through a sort of mass-Stockholm-syndrome, or they’ve become so emasculated and concerned that somebody may not like them, that they would willingly walk into the gas chamber, just so long as it was done peacefully, and without confrontation.

In the end, it all boils down to a mentality of “peace at any cost” (which, as it were, was really what Chamberlain meant when he said “peace in our time."). However, there will come a day in every man’s life time, that he must ask himself:

“Is peace so valuable a prize that I am willing to sacrifice my freedom for it? My property? My country?”

The answer from most of our urban centers (and those of Europe) would be, yes. Peace, to them, is the ultimate prize. Nothing outweighs the value of peace in the eyes of an emasculated, softened urbanite.

Peace to me is not that important when weighed against things more valuable like freedom, self-determination, family, and property. I would fracture even the most enduring peace, and do so willingly and without reserve, if any of the above were placed in peril. I would destroy my enemy at the very peril of my immortal soul to protect my family and their freedom, and would gladly give up my freedom to protect theirs.

Many Europeans would not. Maybe it is time for them to be naturally selected against, as nature intended, if that is the path that they so choose.

Consider what Mark Steyn had to say in America Alone:
On the night of September 11, Muslim youths in northern England rampaged through the streets cheering Islam's glorious victory over the Great Satan. They pounded on the hoods -- or, to use the quaintly bucolic locution of British English, the "bonnets" -- of the cars, hammered the doors, and demanded that the drivers join them in their chants of "Osama bin Laden is a great man."
Try that in Texas, and the guy will reach into his glove box and blow your head off. Even in Vermont it's an ill-advised tactic. But in Britain you're not allowed to own a gun or even (to all intents and purposes) resist assault. So the unfortunate burghers of Bradford went home cowed and terrified, and the Muslim gangs went swaggering off with their self-esteem enormously enhanced. The bullying, intimidating side of Muslim immigration in Europe seems to be largely absent in America, in part at least because the assertiveness of the average American citizen makes it a riskier undertaking.


Every time we let them get away with things like this, every time, we set ourselves up for it to be a bit worse next time, and the time after that. Proof is in the pudding. Watch this video for the pro-HAMAS protests in England a few days back. Note the police, the police, running away. The police! If the law enforcement of Europe is owned and controlled by the whims of the hateful mob, then who is there to stand between them and the people? Who is there to protect them if they will not protect themselves???

It is trickier this time, though, isn’t it? When we faced Nazi Germany, we faced down a powerful, strong, and well organized nation-state whom we could unabashedly brand as evil and without reservation, beat into submission. This isn’t a nation-state, though, is it? This isn’t even a force that is really all that powerful, at all, is it? It is hard to see the great threat in a rag-tag group of 3rd world thugs with a horrid ideology and the will to do something about it. It is easier to just appease them for now. We have become so adverse to that festering tick of the human condition that we call racism, that we fear that any attempt to stand up to a class of people, rather than a nation-state, will be branded just that; racism. Would we be any better than Nazi Germany, itself, if we declared war on a class of people, instead of a nation-state? But this, gentle reader, is a class of people who took to the streets in LA mere days ago shouting that Hitler had not done a good enough job, and we need bigger ovens (an obvious reference to the mass crematoria used by the Nazis to get rid of the dead Jews after they were executed).*

These are the questions people worry over. The Europeans are too afraid of being hated by someone; of being branded a vile racist, so they will continue to appease, like Chamberlain and his failed policies.

But are we Americans so aligned? Time will tell, but I can not picture American police in a US city running away from rioters because they are so afraid of using force that retreat is the only option. A temporary fall-back, maybe, but only until they can regroup, and then wade back in to bust some heads.

I fear that the time is coming, friends, that we shall all have to ask ourselves, “what price, peace?” Violence can be avoided if we all stop hiding from the problem, and confront the schoolyard bully to expose him for the hateful coward that he is. Stop fearing the name-calling, and being branded a racist, because it does no one any good to run away from these thugs who would celebrate your death. Now is the hour in which we must assert ourselves as a people not to be trifled with. When they call for our death on our own streets, call back for theirs as loudly. Do not be cowed and bullied as those in Europe. Be strong enough to help yourself.

*As an aside, can you IMAGINE the Muslim outrage if I were to take to the streets advocating mass cremation of Muslims? My God!

How much water could a sea sponge soak if a sea sponge could soak water?

Sorry, Goober’s had a rough day, and that means bad hyperbole and inane rambling. I’ll keep it short. Promise.

Think of the banking industry as a big sponge. Lets pretend that money is like water to this sponge. If a person were to pour a bunch of water (and by water, I mean money) into this sponge, the theory would be that the sponge would soak up the water, to a point, and then start to trickle the water down to other seas creatures (sorry, this is where the already bad hyperbole really breaks down) in the form of the common folk.

What if that sponge just kept absorbing water, and never saturated? How much more water do you pour into the sponge before you stop and reconsider the plan?

Another $350 billion?

The entire idea was that by giving money to the banks, it would free up credit and loans, and end up helping main street America. Nothing so far.

Any claims that the “investments” are making any money are totally bogus, as it seems that no one even knows where the money is, or what it was spent on. How, if that is the case, could you claim that it was “making money?” I’ll believe it when I see it.

So, after 350 billion dollars, no freeing-up of the credit market, and no relief for the common man, as was promised, do we proceed forward and give them the other 350 billion?

What if the sponge just absorbs that 350 billion, too?

I say we cannot even begin to proceed until we get guarantees that we will be getting something for our money, otherwise, we could be giving an expensive gift to the banking industry, and not get anything in return. What say you?

Warren praises Obama for inviting homosexual bishop

Rick Warren is applauding Barack Obama's decision to invite homosexual Episcopal bishop V. Gene Robinson to pray at an inauguration event next week in Washington, DC.

And if that's not bad enough....

Robinson has said he will not use the Bible when praying, and states "I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer."

Obviously some Episcopals don't believe in the Bible. Why don't they just label themselves what they are: atheist gods (thanx Missy).

...this just in....Duke University employing Romulans...

.
WASHINGTON (AP) — They can't match Harry Potter yet, but scientists are moving closer to creating a real cloak of invisibility.

Researchers at Duke University, who developed a material that can "cloak" an item from detection by microwaves, report that they have expanded the number of wavelengths they can block.

In 2006 the team reported they had developed so-called metamaterials that could deflect microwaves around a three-dimensional object, essentially making it invisible to the waves.

The system works like a mirage, where heat causes the bending of light rays and cloaks the road ahead behind an image of the sky.

UPDATE 11:30 EDT, here's a link, courtesy of friend Anonymous.
.
I looked for the video or story but really can't find a link anywhere. I saw a clip on FOX several times this morning of one Earl Simmons, aka rapper DMX. Mr. Simmons is upset that Joe Arpaio is making him wear pink under wear.
.
In the clip, he said, and this is NOT a direct quote, "...you used to be able to go to jail, do your time, be a clown from da' block, it whudn't too bad, but THIS [tugging at his pink t-shirt] what does THIS mean?"
.
FOX also interviewed Sheriff Joe and guess what? Joe really could not care any less about Earl's sartorial opinion. He dyed the skivvies so DMX and the other criminals would quit stealing the stuff on their way out the do'. It worked, DMX clearly won't be taking his.
.
Arpaio also said that DMX, as well as many others, say they'll leave Arizona when their time in his facility is complete, so as not to be sent back.
.
Oddly, he sees that passing on trouble to other states as a good thing. (tongue in cheek) They were convicted, they did NON-fun [non-clown] time in Joe's jail, he made them hot, sweaty and miserable, he made them eat cold scrambled eggs, PB&J and bologna sandwiches, and they don't want to go back.
.
Isn't that the point of jail? It's not a spa!!
.
Just for the tally books, DMX was arrested 6 or 7 times LAST YEAR ALONE, in 3 different states, on charges ranging from animal cruelty to ID theft to drugs / guns by a felon and while on probation. He is then, by entertainment industry standards, a stand up, but misunderstood fellow.
.
I expect he'll move to L.A. or NYC when released. Any bets?

What, Me Worry? YES!

During his campaign, Yomama Bahama has made more promises than a used car salesman, and apparently, with about as much sincerity. In other words, promise them anything so long as you close the deal. But with each passing day leading up to his coronation, the Anointed One has already started changing and/or ignoring many of those promises. And, with the congress and the MSM firmly in the hands of the Left, there's no one to call him on anything.

One promise in particular was, "i will not take your guns away". In fact, he's repeated it many times, for the cameras of course. Yet everything about him, about his history, as vague, mysterious, and "manipulated" as it is, his beliefs, his associations, points to something VERY different than what we're being told. This story is about one of his cabinet picks, someone who will have great power, and someone who CAN take your guns away, leaving the Anointed One with the ability to say, see, it wasn't me! Don't bother waking-up now America. It's too late!

Eradication of white culture



Alabama NAACP criticizes use of Trail Maids in Inaugural Parade

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- They're part of a long standing tradition that will soon become a part of Presidential history.

The head of the Alabama NAACP, however, wants Mobile's Azalea Trail Maids to stay home on Inauguration Day, claiming the group reminds him of slavery.

"These are not just regular costumes. These are the costumes that remind someone of the plantation in Gone with the Wind," Edward Vaughn said in a phone interview.

I suppose, given the trend of the last 10-20 years, this story shouldn’t get me so upset. Alas, I must be “whitewashed”. In the words of the Office of the President Elect, I must be a ‘typical white person’. In this story I see the continued attempt to wipe white culture from history and memory – and I read into it not just the wish to wipe out a culture, but underlying wishes to wipe out a race.

I don’t wish any ill on Mr. Edward Vaughn of the Alabama NAACP. But I do wish he would seek treatment with a qualified psychiatrist. If he is “reminded of slavery” he must be well over 150 years old. If he’s not that old, he must suffer from delusions. Either that or he is so full of hate he can’t keep his mouth shut.

In a nutshell; I am amazed at the depth of hate inspired by the new president’s skin color – from those who elected him. And it won’t go away. Anyone who believes the election of B. Hussein Obama was a coup on racism and hate didn’t take into account the racism and hate of Obama’s electorate.

To non-white racists white people are the enemy. Now, with their new feelings of empowerment, white people are an enemy that may be dealt with – NOT an enemy that may be reconciled. Obamunists are willing to sit at the table and discuss terms with Hamas; but not with Joe the Plumber.

On the morning of 9-11 my brother called me and told me things would never be the same. He was right – each time I get on a plane I’m treated like a murdering terrorist. When Obama was elected my brother called me and told me things would never be the same. He was right – but I’ve always sat in the back of the bus, regardless.

You know – I truly feel like I’m getting too old for this crap. It’s time for 5 acres, a vegetable garden, a few goats, a few chickens, and lots and lots of bullets – let the liberal bastards fend for themselves.

Your friend and neighbor,
Jimbo

Very interesting. It appears as though Scripps is up to some pretty heavy stuff:

The researchers, at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., created molecules that self-replicate and even evolve and compete to win or lose. If that sounds exactly like life, read on to learn the controversial and thin distinction.

Read this article. It is very interesting. It seems that they have gotten RNA, a molecule that was the primitive precursor to DNA, to replicate, breed, and evolve on its own; that is, without help from added proteins or external assistance. They argue that this could be the precursor to life as we know it, and in fact, some scientists argue that it is, indeed, life.

I truly never thought I would see the day that humans spontaneously created life, but it seems that, depending on with whom you speak, we have either already done it, or we are very close to doing it.
I will be interested to see the response to this. I suspect that you will have evangelical atheists parading this around as “proof” that there is no God (which it is not, by any stretch of the imagination. As I have said before, it is impossible to prove or disprove God’s existence, barring His revealing himself to all of us). I also suspect that this is a big feather in the cap of evolutionary theory (or it will be once it is replicated, and even more so once (if?) life is created), which means that there will be a big push by Creationists to either refute the data with further testing, or to consider the experiment to be novel and interesting, but anything but proof of how life was created. Once thing is certain. There will be a lot of talk about this is years to come. Mark my words

back to important stuff

but is she still a virgin?
if so, she could make a couple of million.......

click my bride

It's OK, though, its for the child... er, the BEARS

We’ve all heard it before. Heartstring-tugging entreaties and pleas to give a little more money, or time, or whatever, to some charity because, after all, it’s for the CHILDREN!

Or politicians asking for more tax money with similar justifications. After all, how many of you hate children so much that you cannot spare an extra cent or two to help the poor, helpless waifs get a refill on their bowl of porridge?

It is good business for organizations that rely on charitable donations in order to exist, to render heart strings tugged, and to convince you that, if you don’t give your money to them, that horrible, horrible things will happen to innocent children.

Or to polar bears.

Yes, polar bears. Cute, cuddly-wuddly polar bears. Yeah, those would be the same ones that would disembowel you so quickly that you wouldn’t even know it had happened until he had eaten a good half of your leg.

Case-in-point, the WWF commercial I saw last night right after I got finished re-wiring my master bathroom so that it actually had functioning outlets that would fire up a hair dryer without popping a breaker. A handsome, baby-faced young actor (no clue who) narrates the heart-rending tale of the desperate polar bear’s plight. “There are only 25,000 polar bears left in the world today,” the young narrator tells you, as if that number is supposed to be critically low enough to spring you to action, grab your checkbook, and start writing (HOLY SHIT Martha! That’s only one per day for the next 70 years, assuming that they don’t reproduce at all!). The video clip accompanying this stark narration is a mother and baby polar bear (phew, I guess they are reproducing, then. I’m so relieved!), laying on a smallish piece of ice, drifting in the ocean. Eventually, the mother takes to the water, leaving her baby stranded on the ice behind her! (oh, the INHUMANITY of these polar bears!) Fortunately, the baby seems to learn to swim in enough time to take to the water after his mother (whew!), so that he is not abandoned on the ice flow. They swim about 50 yards to the pack ice, and the entire saga is over (rather anticlimactically, I might add. Even I can swim 50 yards!) However, the whole scene is accompanied by sad music, so one can only assume that their plight has only just begun (what next? Killer whale attack?).

Several things occur to me at this point.

1.) 25,000 is not a small number. That’s a lot of bears. More so, than, say, anytime since we’ve been keeping track of their numbers, and a lot more than in the (much colder) 1970’s, when only 5,000 bears were thought to be left in the world. So, over the past 30 years, which are the years that global warming has been the worst, they’ve quintupled their population (go figure). It is estimated that the artic couldn’t support a whole lot more bears than are there now. This isn’t the California Condor, with only a few breeding pairs left, or the North American Bison, who’s numbers dropped into the hundreds. This is 25,000 animals.
2.) The idea that polar bears now become stranded on ice flows now, and did not in the past is ridiculous. The bear’s name, Ursus Maritimus should lend a bit of a clue to it’s natural habitat. Some even consider them to be marine mammals. They can swim huge distances, and do so regularly. The mother and baby in the video in this commercial are doing what they do, every day. This was not some precarious, dangerous situation for the bears. This was probably something that they did on purpose in the course of a typical day of seal hunting.

So what does it mean for a “cause” that has taken up the polar bear as it’s raison d’etre when the polar bear isn’t in any measurable peril in any world other than the virtual world of computer modeling that says that they are? Sea ice extent in the Arctic is already back to 1979 levels, after a record low (since we started tracking levels in about, well… 1979. Hmmm) in 2007. Of the 19 distinct polar bear populations, somewhere between 2 to 5 of them are declining (depending on who you talk to, but if there is argument, the decline must be pretty slow for at least three of them, right?), 3 are increasing in population, and the remainder are stable. So do we get to stop worrying about polar bears yet?

No? Why the hell not?!

I think that if this is going to be the cause that the WWF wants to hang their hats on, it is THEY who are endangered, because me thinks that this global warming thing is going to dry up right quickly in the next ten years, just like the predictions that we would have an ice-free North Pole this year (guffaw). Tell me that there are not better things for the WWF to be spending their time on. African rhinos are in big trouble. How about Asiatic Leopards? The Mekong Catfishes? You can’t tell me that there aren’t any other critters in more need than frigging polar bears, of which there have never been more since we started keeping track. Oh, you say that they aren’t as cuddly-wuddly as polar bears? Go snuggle up to one and see just how snuggly it really is. I’ll bet you don’t do it again, either, whether it be through painful education, or total eradication. Once you’ve been digested, maybe you can tell us how SOFT his frigging fur was…

More money than sense or Betcha their parents are SO proud

Natalie Dylan, 22, claims her offer of a one-night stand has persuaded 10,000 men to bid for sex with her.

Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to £162,000 ($243,000) but since then interest in her has rocketed.

The student who has a degree in Women's Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself.

Miss Dylan, from San Diego, California, USA, said she was persuaded to offer herself to the highest bidder after her sister Avia, 23, paid for her own degree after working as a prostitute for three weeks.

She said she had had a lot of attention from a wide range of men, including "weirdos", "those who get really graphically sexual about what they want to do to me" and "lots of polite requests from rich businessmen"

A&M to base bonuses on student input

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The chancellor of the Texas A&M University System wants to give bonuses worth up to $10,000 to some instructors, but so far, many aren't interested.
"I've never had so much trouble giving away a million dollars," Chancellor Mike McKinney said, laughing.
The voluntary pilot program being done at Texas A&M University along with the campuses in Prairie View and Kingsville will award bonuses from $2,500 to $10,000 to instructors based on end-of-the-semester critiques by students. The first awards go out in February, the Bryan-College Station Eagle reported in its online editions on Sunday.
But faculty members have voiced concern about the program's fairness, worried that it relies on a single evaluation method and could become a popularity contest that wouldn't serve students. Many instructors haven't signed up to participate; the faculty senate passed a resolution opposing the program.

Isn't this a little like the enlisted men selecting officers, or voting a girl off the island because she has little boobs, or determining nutrition by taste?

Are "paki" and "raghead" offensive and racist language?

I don't know about you but I could come up with language far worse than that. Let's get Prince Harry out of trouble and give 'em some suggestions.

Residents and pirates in the Somali port of Haradhere told the Associated Press that the boat, which was carrying eight men, overturned in a storm after dozens of pirates left the Sirius Star following a two-month standoff in the Gulf of Aden.

Three of the eight pirates managed to swim to shore but five were believed to have drowned.

Too important for just a cut and dry Yes or No

.
I was just watching Glen Beck on Bill O'Reilly's show. O'Reilly is SURPRISED that Beck hopes Obama does well as President.
.
Beck, certainly, gave the caveat that if Obama does poorly, the country will suffer. If he does well then it follows that the country will do well. I agree with Beck, O'Reilly doesn't buy the sentiment. O'Reilly even said he had a Poll going, "...go out to billoreilly.com, and take the poll."
.
I went out and looked at the poll. It's says,
.
.
"Do you support Barack Obama?"
.
.
There are two buttons there, a YES button, and a NO button. But is it that cut and dry? If we, the non-Obama voters, spend as much time, money and energy screaming and yelling and rolling our eyes, doesn't that make us, exactly like them?
.
I think he's going to get himself tied in knots quickly. But I hope not, for all our sakes.
