America, Beyond FUBAR

That title answers the question; "where is America going". Recently, radical gay activists and their lovers and supporters in congress, with help from the MSM, managed to repeal the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. If you know anything about how left-wing radicals in the gay community operate, you should have realized they had no intention of stopping with that major political victory. Simply having gays openly serving in our military was their stated goal, but certainly not their true intention. That, as it turns out, is to turn the military into a circus side show, with all manner of deviants. Males who want to be females. Females who want to be males. Others who want to be both. And still others who can't seem to decided whether they want to pee standing up, sitting down, or perhaps, both.

Radical gays know that while the Marxist-in-Chief and his band of America-haters are still in power, they stand a very good chance of getting this done. They know that Obummer will do anything for a few votes. They also know that no other sitting president would dare disgrace the country in such a way.

Now here's the really scary question. Do you think your fellow Americans will allow this to happen? As you may have guessed, i have my own opinion as to their reaction, and it makes me sick...

WTF !!

Had anyone ever told me that someone like Ron Paul would come to one of NYC's most radical, left-wing neighborhoods and be welcomed, and not hanged, i would not have believed it.

The East Village, (part of famed -or infamous - Greenwich Village) is home to most of the city's left-over 60's hippies, anarchists, communists, socialists, hard-core leftists, and all manner of bleeding-heart liberals. So how does Ron Paul, not only get invited to speak there, but is also welcomed? Is there that much anti-government sentiment coming from the Lefts base?

Personally, i like Ron Paul. I like what he says and how he says it. And, i truly believe he means what he says. That alone (IMO) puts him way above anyone else running. Yes, i know all the things that are said about him, that he's not "presidential looking", whatever that means. I think he looks better than the dumbo-eared Mooselamb we're stuck with now. Then, they say "he's not electable", which is pretty stupid. If enough of us have the courage to vote for him, he's very electable!

Change? I think he's a guy that can really change America. Not into the Marxist State we're becoming, but into the country We The People want. And if We The People don't know what kind of country we really want, then we deserve another four years of the Marxist-in-Chief...

Yet another Call to Arms!!

I told you I was expecting this move. But I NEVER thought MY idiotarian governor would be bold enough to say it aloud first!!

N.C. Gov. Perdue: Suspend elections for Congress

Was North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue joking when she suggested holding off on elections for Congress?

Perdue, a Democrat elected in 2008, caused a stir Tuesday when she told a Rotary Club audience that congressional elections should be suspended for two years so lawmakers can focus on solving the nation's vexing economic problems.

"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that," Perdue is quoted as saying. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."

Her spokeswoman, Chris Mackey, told the News & Observer in Raleigh that Perdue was using "hyperbole" to spotlight the issue of Congress playing politics instead of solving problems.

Not so fast, says a spokesman for the North Carolina Republican Party. Rob Lockwood told the Raleigh newspaper, after it posted the audio, that the governor's tone is unmistakable.

"If it was a joke, what was the setup? What was the punchline? " Lockwood says before calling it "an unconstitutionally bad idea."

OK, here's the low down. She's an old school, well informed, well CONNECTED Southern Democrat who loves Obama and all things D-N-C!!! If she was joking, I'm a butterfly!!!

A Call To Arms?

Is the Marxist-in-Chief sending out a message to blacks? Are the words "march" and "fight" code for other words, such as violence, intimidation, and civil unrest ? He has spent the last three years creating an obvious racial divide in this country. Is this when he hopes it will pay off?

I wonder if his message will be the same when he address's the Congressional White Caucus.

This can't possibly be racial

The MSM has mentioned this slasher, but not the description.

I ain't gwanna be here dis Friday!'s de joking t'ing Mon!

Natural Born Citizen
This just might make your day a little brighter!! You, who worry about democrats versus republicans -- relax, here is our real problem.

In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States . It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age. However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen.

In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating,

"What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"

Yep, these are the same kinds of 18-year-olds that are now voting in our elections!

If I find out who did this...

Someone, some friend with a twisted sense of humor, put MY name is as Supporter of Barack Obama!!! Read this crap from my e-mail this morning!!
Friend --

You're in for 2012: Welcome, and thanks.

Now forget everything you know about politics.

Because I can tell you that the next 14 months will be like nothing you've seen from a campaign. If we're going to win, we have to be tougher, smarter, and more innovative than ever before.

The President has a job to do, so he's asking each of us to take the lead in shaping this effort.

That work begins now in your community.

Sign up to volunteer today.


Your leadership today will help shape what kind of campaign we can run over the next few months, and what kind of campaign we can run when the election heats up next year.

You may be asked to recruit other volunteers, register voters, or talk to your friends and neighbors about what they hope to see from this campaign. You may sign up to volunteer today and end up leading a canvass next summer.

I got my start empowering residents in mobile home communities in Missoula, Montana -- a long way from Washington, D.C. As an organizer, I know it all starts in our own backyards. Committing to a campaign at the beginning is a huge first step, but it's often the decisions we make from that point on that determine success.

Whether you're a first-time supporter or a veteran volunteer, this campaign belongs to you. You own it, and you power it.

This is an exciting time to get involved -- sign up to be a volunteer today:

Let's go,


Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America
I hope whoever did this gets abducted by aliens with a severe and rabid anal probing fetish!!! Ya' rotten bastard(s)!.
Schteveo is not amused!

Even Jon Stewart is Bailing

Is Carville right?

Hell yes he's right!! But let's hope The One, Mr. Perfect, the holder of all the Universe's knowledge doesn't listen.
Carville to Obama: Time to panic!
People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things. Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic.

We are far past sending out talking points. (I thought they denied doing this? Over and over they've denied it. Talking Points have no 'gravitas' after all) Do not attempt to dumb it down. We cannot stand any more explanations. Have you talked to any Democratic senators lately? I have. It's pretty damn clear they are not happy campers.

This is what I would say to President Barack Obama: The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed.

I don't know how else to break this down. Simply put:

1. Fire somebody. No -- fire a lot of people.

2. Indict people. There are certain people in American finance who haven't been held responsible for utterly ruining the economic fabric of our country.

(I agree with that one, but INCLUDE certain members of Congress who have HUGE ties to Fanny and Freddie)

3. Make a case like a Democrat. While we are going along with the Republican austerity garbage, who is making the case against it? It's not the Democrats!

4. Hold fast to an explanation. Stick to your rationale for what has happened and what is going to happen under your leadership. You must carry this through until the election (never say that things are improving because evidently they are not).

(Evidently? Seriously? I think the word he needed to use is ABSOLUTELY) No happy Democrat Senators? I canm't find anyone, except the Obama Family, including all his illegal aunts and uncles, who are happy!
I'm no Carville fan, never have been. But I agree with his analysis. This WH is THE sucking hole of do nothing, know nothing, hand-wringing, lying in our nations history! BHO has eclipsed Jimmy Carter as the poorest example of the American Presidency. Here's to hoping that he does NOT take Carville's advice. I doubt he'll listen. After all, Carville is / was a Clinton guy. And no one in THIS current WH is taking advice from ANYONE from Clinton advisor.
They're too smart to listen to Carville. (I hope) Read the entire article HERE.

It's, "No Shit Sherlock", Time

The Census Bureau says the term "poverty" no longer MEANS what it used to "mean". I'll buy that, if poverty in the Depression meant they had a car, a house phone, three Philco radios, an ice box full of food and lots and lots of name brand clothing for that era. Because the bottom line NOW is that very thing, but updated to cell phones, flat screen TV, etc, etc, etc.
We learned Tuesday that a record number of Americans are living in poverty, and that the poverty rate--15.1 percent--rose for the fourth straight year.

But those raw numbers leave out some key details that can help us understand the fuller implications of how poverty affects individual Americans. For instance, how is poverty defined? What specific hardships do the poor suffer? And what does it mean to be poor in America today?

So from the outset, we lack a fully accurate way of gauging Americans' true economic well-being. That's why the Census Bureau said in its report that it plans to unveil preliminary findings next month, derived from a new measurement that addresses some of the shortcomings in the current system.

Some argue that even if poor Americans are doing OK by some standards, that's no reason not to be concerned by a rising poverty rate. "If you compare the U.S. with people in the developing world, even Americans living in poverty are well off," said Isabel Sawhill, also of Brookings. "But I think the standards of your country matter."

He thinks the standard of the country matter. Seriously? So poor people SHOULD have cell phones, Nikes, low riders, Lakers gear, blah, blah, blah?! Or am I too HARD hearted?

It's definitely me!! I simply do not think you can call people 'poor' when they own what, or better stuff than, the average citizens own!! Websters defines "poverty" this way,
a : the state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions

b : renunciation as a member of a religious order of the right as an individual to own property
So the very definition goes to money AND POSSESSIONS. We have, in fact like we do everything in our PCascist states, redefined poverty. It's all about number of heads vs income. But if that income is augmented by Food Stamps, Rent Assistance, Medicade, et al, the 'poor' wind up with more disposable income than some daily working, lower level, no-eligible, NON-poor people. I can tell you it works that way because a few years ago I was in that group.
After the Dot.Com bubble burst, and I could no longer work, Mrs Schteveo and I literally lost everything we owned save the (worthless to anyone but us) contents of our home. We had no car. home, MONEY, or anything worth selling. But we made too much 3 years ago to qualify for ANY assistance.
But people who had never worked, had cars, cell phones, big TVs, Lakers / UNC clothing, etc. I know it happened because we lived in my wife's family home for a while, and the house was near some State / Federal Housing Units and Section 8 Housing. The instance that always comes to mind was a family we called, 'The Queen Family ". This was two older ladies, in a Cadillac, with one of their grandsons in tow. The grandson was a wide open, flouncing, flamer. Ergo, two older ladies, gay grandson, The Queens.
The women were always well dressed, "Sonny" was always dressed too. Oddly, usually in team sports wear. But when they paid for their groceries, out came THREE EBT Cards!!
Just how damned poor are you if you can afford new cars, new clothes and all the stuff that goes with it?. No, we've redefined poor as,
" anyone with enough balls to convincingly lie to the gub'ment so they can get $$$$$"
It has nothing to do with need or right and wrong. It's about creating government jobs, it's about number crunching to get a desired set of answers and it's about buying votes on one hand and creating a constant new set of under-class of voters on the other.

The Virus Is Spreading

The virus i'm referring to is an insidious one, one that is eating away at the very heart of our society. It is not only changing the way we live, but how we act, think, socialize, and yes, even the way we speak. The virus i speak of is, political correctness. It was created by the social engineers of the Left, who deeply believe that they, and only they, know how we all "must" live.

For years now, this destructive virus has quietly worked it's way into our daily lives, almost without notice. It has become an unwritten law throughout the govt. and in many places of business. It has clearly infected almost every TV personality, especially in the MSM. And yes, Fox is especially included. We have reached the point where most Americans no longer pay attention to it, mindlessly accept it, or worse, are completely unaware of it. Below is yet another example of what it's doing to us as a society...

(Elizabethton, Tennessee) "Could you be arrested for allowing your 5'th grade child to ride her bike one mile to school? That certainly seems crazy as we try to encourage active life styles for our kids. That certainly seems crazy as we try to promote safe routes to school programs. That certainly seems crazy as we talk of an obesity epidemic amongst our children. But that is what police in Elizabethton Tennessee are threatening.

Teresa Tryon said, "On August 25th my 10 year daughter arrived home via police officer, requested to speak to me on the front porch of my home. The officer informed me that in his 'judgement' it was unsafe for my daughter to ride her bike to school."
Ms Tryon called the mayor's office and the chief of police office in order to determine what laws she was breaking by allowing her daughter to ride her bike to school. Her daughter's route to school was reasonably safe.

Major Verran of the police department returned Ms Tryon's call. She said he told me, "He had spoke with the District Attorney's office who advised that until the officer can speak with Child Protective Services that if I allow my daughter to ride/walk to school I will be breaking the law and treated accordingly.

She asked, "What law she would be breaking to which the answer was 'child neglect'".

Ms Tryon confirmed with Major Verran that her daughter was indeed breaking no laws at any level, but it was Ms Tryon who was breaking the law by allowing her daughter to ride/walk to school. Even though it only takes her daughter 7 - 9 minutes to bicycle to school, she is expected to ride the bus..."

(Borrowed from the patriotic minds at PIG)

Crime Does Pay

Well, actually, that should read, "Crime does pay, but only if your nephew (?) is the president".

It seems the Marxist-in-Chief's uncle has received a "quiet" release from the MA. jail where he was being held for DUI, (maybe he's a Kennedy?) and for being in this country, illegally. In fact, this same guy has a sister also living in this country, and also, illegally. But instead of being deported, Obummer's people quietly got her set up in some nice condo. I know this will shock you, but take a guess at who's paying her bills? That's right, it's the "worker ants" of America. (a.k.a. the taxpayers)

Here in NYC today, we're on something called a "terror alert". It seems some info came in somewhere saying three highly-trained Al-Qaeda terrorists were coming her to detonate a car bomb. There are thousands of cops all over the city. Well, Manhattan anyway. The rest of us don't seem to matter. The subways are filled with cops armed with automatic weapons, which i can assure you are not loaded. If a cop actually fired one of those things in a crowded subway, getting fired, sued, and arrested, would be the least of his worries. It's all a show meant to keep the sheep quiet. Anyone with the least bit of knowledge about terrorism knows there's no real defense against it.

But here's the real questions.
1) If this info is correct, how are three trained terrorists getting into the country? Are they also related to Obummer, and will they also receive "get-out-of-jail-free" cards?

2) Which is a greater threat to America, Al-Qaeda, or our immigration policy?

I'll just keep my Wrangler jeans, work boots and boxer style skivvies, but thanks anyway!

More proof that what they, the lefty media, really want is for men to cease being men.Link

The fashion industry has its knickers in a twist over "manties."

A contraction of "man" and "panties," the wordplay is meant to describe certain undergarments for males.

It's part of a special lexicon that has emerged, over the past decade, as a sort of shorthand for men's fashion. Men can also wear "mandals" (male sandals), "murses" (purses), "mantyhose" (pantyhose) and "mankinis" (swimsuit variants)—though not necessarily all at the same time.

At first, the neologisms were a kind of secret language among the fashion industry, etymologists say. Yet they're going mainstream. Now, editors of the prestigious Oxford English Dictionary are tracking them for possible inclusion.

The men's collection shows at New York Fashion Week, which kicks off Thursday, could give rise to more neologisms. Fashion editors often lack the words to describe wacky runway concoctions.

At Herm├Ęs' women's fashion collection in March, for example, "poots" was coined to identify a pair of leather pants that segue into boots.

But not everyone is thrilled about the emerging vocabulary. Some fashion types complain that it's emasculating.

"Manties is pretty high on the repellent meter," says Glenn O'Brien, author of "How To Be A Man" and a style advice columnist at GQ magazine.

The very fact that there IS a "GQ" for this uber-boob to be 'advising' for shows how far we've slipped. Seque? The leather pants, 'seque' into the boots? Men do not wear clothes that include the word 'seque'. Unless they are gay men, that is.

And, Mr. O'Brien also wrote, "How to be a Man"? Seriously? But t be fair, to the authir and to show that he's 'in the know' of all things concerning hetero dudism, here's another article by Mr. Obrien, from 2001.

Ten Things That Look Too Gay

Gay is good. Gay is great. But isn't sexual orientation so much more fun when you have to guess a little?

No Mr. O'Brien, it isn't, UNLESS you ARE gay. Only gay men would play this game. And contrary to popular belief, there is NOT a gay man inside all of us, wanting to get inside YOU.

Personally, I had no idea there were levels of gay. Did you? As there are no levels of straight, the 'fact' that there are levels of gay kinda got by me. Levels of gay? He actually wrote that? Yeah, this is THE guy to go to for help being a manly man. I'm betting he's a good source for "How to hide a Salami" too and I'm so sick of this whole concerted, media love of role line blurring, pro-anything BUT hetero-sexualty I could puke.

But a good honest man puke, not a metro-sexual upchuck, or cookie blow.


At last, PROOF that the U.S. sucks!

Not really, and quite the opposite as a matter of fact! We not only don't suck, people STILL want to come here on purpose! Why don't we ever hear THAT from our MSM? HUH? Huh? HUH? The bastards!
Chinese millionaire Su builds skyscrapers in Beijing and is one of the people powering China's economy on its path to becoming the world's biggest.

He sits at the top of a country - economy booming, influence spreading, military swelling - expected to dominate the 21st century. Yet the property developer shares something surprising with many newly rich in China: He's looking forward to the day he can leave.

Su's reasons: He wants to protect his assets, he has to watch what he says in China, and he wants a second child, something against the law for many Chinese. His wife is already in the U.S. The millionaire spoke on condition that only his surname was used because of fears of government reprisals that could damage his business.

China's richest are increasingly investing abroad to get a foreign passport, to make international business easier but also to give them a way out of China.

The United States is the most popular destination for Chinese emigrants, with rich Chinese praising its education and health care systems. Last year, nearly 68,000 Chinese-born people became legal permanent residents of the U.S., 7 percent of the total and second only to those born in Mexico.

It is a bothersome trend for China's communist leaders who have pinned the legitimacy of one-party rule on delivering economic growth and a rising standard of living.

OK, so what can we surmise from this? One of two things is afoot as Mr. Holmes would say!
A.) Chinese millionaires are really NOT very smart, and not good at looking at the best place to protect their assets, and raise their families.

B.) American MSM (and the left in general) is (are) dead ass wrong about how evil, rotten and screwed up we are as a nation!
Damned clever these Chinese, there Watson, wouldn't you say?! I gotta tell ya', I feel better about our chances right now.
The Chinese as a nation and as individuals take the LONG 'look' when they make 'prans'. It is NOT unusual for Chinese families to take "X" action as a large and combined group to ensure that ONE of their Grandsons MIGHT get "Y" opportunity. They do it so that the family comes out better in the end.
If Chinese millionaires are jumping to come here, they've either, done their homework, or they see our Communist / Dictatorial leaders as better for business than their ChiCom / Dictatorial leaders.
Rets arr hope dat dey'r prans wolk out!

(I'm gonna get e-mails for THAT racist crap, ain't I?) (Poots, no offense intended)

Sunday, September 4, 2011


I'm trying to figure this out. And since the liberal mind doesn't resonate with mine, I can't even begin to wrap my brain around this.

So let me try to give you the elements that just don't come together, even in the simplest of terms.

1- They are about to increase the minimum wage from $7 and change to just under $10/ hr
2- There are no jobs even at $7 or so, not even at McDonald's
3- Happy meals are now being composed of apple slices with no toys
4- Medical and other benefits plus payroll taxes, insurance, etc, will cost $20-30/hr/employee.
5- apple pickers will receive amnesty so they won't pick apples below minimum wage and likely just add even more rolls to the free cheese crew.
6- So no one will even pick the apples, which instead of going to McDonald's you can still buy for about 1/2 buck or so in NYC (not much longer) soon to be $3-5 for an apple.

so my question is, once again:


Belated Friday Funny

I was down near the Texas/Mexico border visiting a friend when I saw a fundamentalist Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River one morning. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs that he was carrying.

Along with him was an illegal Mexican drug cartel member who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back.

I knew if they didn't get help soon, they'd surely drown.

Being a responsible person, and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed both the El Paso County Sheriff's Office and Homeland Security.

It is now 4 pm, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I'm starting to think I wasted two stamps.

Protecting His "Brothers"?

An unprecedented collaboration between the Obama administration and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC, formerly called the Organization of the Islamic Conference) to combat "Islamophobia" may soon result in the delegitimization of freedom of expression as a human right.

The administration is taking the lead in an international effort to "implement" a U.N. resolution against religious "stereotyping," specifically as applied to Islam. To be sure, it argues that the effort should not result in free-speech curbs. However, its partners in the collaboration, the 56 member states of the OIC, have no such qualms. Many of them police private speech through Islamic blasphemy laws and the OIC has long worked to see such codes applied universally. Under Muslim pressure, Western Europe now has laws against religious hate speech that serve as proxies for Islamic blasphemy codes.

Last March, U.S. diplomats maneuvered the adoption of Resolution 16/18 within the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC). Non-binding, this resolution, inter alia, expresses concern about religious "stereotyping" and "negative profiling" but does not limit free speech. It was intended to — and did — replace the OIC's decidedly dangerous resolution against "defamation of religions," which protected religious institutions instead of individual freedoms. But thanks to a puzzling U.S. diplomatic initiative that was unveiled in July, Resolution 16/18 is poised to become a springboard for a greatly reinvigorated international effort to criminalize speech against Islam, the very thing it was designed to quash.

Citing a need to "move to implementation" of Resolution 16/18, the Obama administration has inexplicably decided to launch a major international effort against Islamophobia in partnership with the Saudi-based OIC. This is being voluntarily assumed at American expense, outside the U.N. framework, and is not required by the resolution itself.

On July 15, a few days after the Norway massacre, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton co-chaired an OIC session in Istanbul on religious intolerance. It was there that she announced the initiative, inviting the OIC member-states' foreign ministers and representatives to the inaugural meeting of the effort that the U.S. government would host this fall in Washington. She envisions it as the first in a series of meetings to decide how best to implement Resolution 16/18.
In making the announcement, Clinton was firm in asserting that the U.S. does not want to see speech restrictions: "The resolution calls upon states to 'counter offensive expression through education, interfaith dialogue, and public debate . . . but not to criminalize speech unless there is an incitement to imminent violence.'" (This is the First Amendment standard set forth in the 1969 Supreme Court case of Brandenburg v. Ohio.)

With the United States providing this new world stage for presenting grievances of "Islamophobia" against the West, the OIC rallied around the initiative as the propaganda windfall that it is. It promptly reasserted its demands for global blasphemy laws, once again sounding the call of its failed U.N. campaign for international laws against the so-called defamation of Islam. It has made plain its aim to use the upcoming conference to further pressure Western governments to regulate speech on behalf of Islam...

Hard to see on this boat just taken with my blackberry: On the stern are both an American flag and the Gadsen flag (don't tread on me) and both the port and starboard have banners saying: "No Agenda 21"

When In Doubt, Surrender

Apparently, the Brits have learned nothing from Neville Chamberlain, who, at the start of WWII, became known around the world as, "Mr. Appeasement". The one thing old Neville managed to accomplish was to convince Hitler that Britain would be a push-over. And if not for us, he would have been right.

Now comes the former head of MI-5, Britain's equivalent to our FBI. She says the best way to deal with the murderous terrorists of Al-Qaeda is to, (you guessed it) "negotiate with them"! You would think that someone in a position to know all the details of what Al-Q has done, is doing, and perhaps plans to do, would not be so stupid as to show the terrorists how truly weak they are by making such a statement. But, let's not forget, this is Britain, a nation that has allowed hundreds-of-thousands of radical Mooselambs to enter and settle in their country. A nation that tolerated violent riots conducted by the same radical Mooselambs they welcomed with open arms, if not empty heads. This is the government, along with the Church of England, that has "officially" recognized and permitted the use of Sharia Law in it's country.

Let's hope this kind of insanity doesn't make it's way across the pond...

Redneck, racing, racist, @$$holes!!!

President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony on Wednesday – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won't be there.

NASCAR said Thursday that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to "schedule conflicts."

(I wonder if it's the same kind of scheduling 'conflict' that makes the President schedule a TV speech at the SAME time that there is a Republican Debate occurring?)
They must be very busy people. Regardless of one's political views, the president is still the president – and an opportunity to speak with the leader of the free world is a rare and special one.

You'd think whatever photo shoots or sponsor appearances these drivers have lined up on Wednesday afternoon – if that's indeed the reason – could be rescheduled. After all, this is the President of the United States we're talking about here.

You've just gotta go read the Comments over there. It's quite funny.
But for those not in the know, it's half way through THIS current season. The 2010 Season ended last November and the 2010 Official NASCAR Awards Banquet was in January. I don't remember him waiting 8 or 9 months to congratulate NCAA or NBA b'ball champs. Do you?

...we'll always have Pittsburgh.

Frankly my Dear, I don't give a rats ass!
..and your big fat cat too!!
I'm gonna make him an offer and he can take it or leave it.
What we have here, is a simple problem of communication.
I could do this ALL day, but I won't.
Actually, do you get WHAT I'm doing? I'm changing, ever so slightly, some of the most famous quotes from classic movies. Now I'll admit, I'm a nut for old flicks, I spend WAY more time watching TCM than I do seeing new movies. And not because I'm cheap.
Now I'm not a complete nut, I like some new movies. I simply don't believe that "Saw XXXIV", or "He knows what you did on Elm Street: Freddie gets Potty Trained by Michael Myers, the Redux", is as scary as "The Birds" or "The Exorcist". "Bridget Jones (thick ass) Diary III" is NOT as good as "You can't take it with you" or "It Happened One Night" for boy meets girls kinda stuff.
Likewise, younger actors ain't got the chops of the old guys either. Brad Pitt ain't no Cary Grant, Clooney ain't Bogie, and no one born after 1950 is better than anyone born before as far as movie making goes.

So throw out the new "Oceans 11", "12" and "19" too! No one was cooler than the Rat Pack. Hell most of the women in pre-1980 movies would STARVE in Hollywood today. Too' fat'. But that's a different topic. I could do this ALL day, but I won't. We were discussing classics and changes. Old versus new.
I have no idea what kind of movies you like. But most people, regardless of their likes, do NOT want that like monkeyed with! CGI cannot make up for talent. It also cannot make up for shit the writer(s) / director(s) / producer(s) didn't consider earlier. It can't even, in the minds of the viewers, make up for stuff they just couldn't do when the original was made!
Yeah, you're asking, "...Schteveo, WTF are you rambling about! Spit it out you fat, rambling bastard!"
Bite me, my parents were too married!.
Here's what set me off this AM. George freakin' Lucas has changed Star Wars.
This time, he's changed things for the Blu-Ray release. Or in the case of the original three flicks, the re-re-re-release.
Now I understand that these movies are not everyone's cup of tea. But after 40 odd years, 6 movies, TV shows, a ton of books and 2 1/2 generations of rabid fans, these movies ARE classics! You should not keep changing them!! And I have the perfect solution for Mr. Lucas & ILM,
"I love the smell of hydrogen bombs in the morning!"
I really could keep doing this ALL day.
