Really? yer mouth!

I can understand that there are some phrases that become universally anethema.  They become so over used in our language that regardless of what the term actually meant at one time in history, the new-speak definition makes it a no-no in polite company.

At the same time, there are phrases that have been used for hundreds of years that people are now looking to find the origin in order to find a reason to be offended.  I some times wonder if the modern understanding of the meaning is true, just because it sounds good to make it offensive.  Ironically, the educated Id10t who wrote the initial memo even states that these are only "possible origins" of the phrases.  That kind of hints that he was looking for offense.

The phrases in the article include:

Rule of thumb
Going Dutch
Hold down the fort

as an adult I have since learned that many words that were not considered offensive in polite society in my formative years (60's & 70's) are now almost blasphemous.  words such as "squaw".....which by the way, no feathered indian language that I have heard of uses that that combination of sounds to denote a woman who conducts nocturnal gymnastics with a variety of men in exchange for monetary gain.

It is going to be a very boring day when every piece of audible or written communication has to be vetted for potential offense to another living person, regardless of their national origin, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation..... unless of course the speaker is non-white and American.

As a side note, ask a Thai speaker how they would translate the words green beans or pumpkin...but be leary of asking them what the word "yet" means if they were to translate it into english.

Are The Natives Getting Restless?

"What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure..." -- Thomas Jefferson
Obviously, Thomas Jefferson felt we might have need for those words someday. Is that day coming?

This article is about a group of young American soldiers. I'm sure some will call them fools, while others may call them traitors, and still others might call them patriots. This is usually the case when military men decide their government is no longer working for them and/or their country, and in fact, because of it's policies, may actually be a danger to that country. There isn't much info out yet about this story. And, with the kind of govt. that we have in place right now, we may never hear a lot of those facts. How many people are involved? Who's actually involved? How high up does it go? How far did they get?

There's a great old movie called, "Seven Days In May", staring Burt Lancaster, with Kirk Douglas as his #2. It was about a four-star General, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and his plan to overthrow the US govt., with the help of several Generals, Admirals and members of congress, because they saw the president as a liberal weakling. And no, the plan didn't work, thanks to Kirk Douglas, and Commiewood...

Are we seeing a case of life imitating art?

The Face Of Weakness

Today, (8/27) while having my morning coffee, i tuned into the “Morning Joe” show on msnbc. (i like to keep tabs on the enemy) The panel of guests included Chris (tingles) Matthews, Tom (mr. elitist) Brokow, Mika (the elitist socialist) Brezinski, and of course, the very pro-Obama progressive RINO, Joe Scarborough. Also on the panel was the head of the RNC, Reince Priebus. (i swear that name came from a Star Trek episode)

What followed was “the most” despicable display of weakness and cowardice that i’ve ever seen. And it was on the part of the RNC head. Matthews launched into a tirade aimed directly at Priebus about how Romney is a racist because of Romney’s remark the other day saying, “no one needs to ask me for my birth certificate“. Matthews continued to rant wildly, so much so that he actually started to foam at the mouth. The RNC head just sat there, totally overwhelmed and blown away. He looked like someone who just walked into 200 mph gail-force winds. I have never seen anyone so humiliated, insulted, degraded, and scolded on national TV. And the only words the RNC head was able to get out were, “oh, stop it! In fact, it got so bad that the other Obamunists on the panel had to intervene and tell Matthews to calm down.

People like Mr. Priebus, John (the cryer) Boehner, and Mitch (mumbles) McConnell, are the reason why, IMO, the Republican party has become the national symbol of weakness, and why, even when they win, they’re still taking orders from the Demoncrats. Pathetic.

So, Where Are They?

My question refers to the Tea Party, those large and loud groups, (albeit lawful and non-violent ) of We The People who were totally responsible for the Republicans being able to take control of the House in 2010. They were also responsible for scaring the hell out of the Demoncrats, the MSM, and the Left in general. They were not used to seeing, nor were they prepared for, the American sheeple actually rising up and making their voices heard. Personally, i was happy and proud to be part of that movement. So, were are they?

Very little has been heard from the movement since 2010. In fact, the Left, seeing that the movement seems to have run out of gas, (or guts, or will, or zeal, etc.) now considers the Tea Party a one-time anomaly and nothing to fear. And that's very bad news for all of us who know that we, and our country, are in very real danger. The weak and gutless Republican Party, without the passion and push from the Tea Party, will not help save the country, as they are not all that different from the Demoncrats.

So, what's wrong with the Tea Party? Many believe it's too many voices. Too many leaders, and far less zeal than when it started. If that's true, and i personally believe there's a lot of truth in that assessment, we are in BIG trouble. If the Tea Party was ever needed, it's now...

Welcome To NYC

Welcome to NYC, and like in the old days of the 60's and early 70's, it's once again starting to resemble Dodge City of the Old West. The main difference between NYC and Dodge City is that in the old west, everyone had a gun and was therefor able to protect themselves. That one fact kept violent crimes against individuals very low.

Here in NYC, if you are a hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying citizen, you just try getting a permit to own and carry a legal handgun to protect yourself and your family. I dare ya! 

(R) look at a return to the Gold Standard

The gold standard has returned to mainstream U.S. politics for the first time in 30 years, with a “gold commission” set to become part of official Republican party policy. 
Drafts of the party platform, which it will adopt at a convention in Tampa Bay, Florida, next week, call for an audit of Federal Reserve monetary policy and a commission to look at restoring the link between the dollar and gold. 

The move shows how five years of easy monetary policy — and the efforts of congressman Ron Paul — have made the once-fringe idea of returning to gold-as-money a legitimate part of Republican debate.
Marsha Blackburn, a Republican congresswoman from Tennessee and co-chair of the platform committee, said the issues were not adopted merely to placate Paul and the delegates that he picked up during his campaign for the party’s nomination. 

“These were adopted because they are things that Republicans agree on,” Blackburn told the Financial Times. “The House recently passed a bill on this, and this is something that we think needs to be done.”
Might I add, well no DUH!!!  IF we go back to a set price for Gold, it would keep OUR economy from floating and being attacked by guys like Soros or countries like China.  The question is, what price will they choose FOR the price of Gold?  And, if we go on the Gold Standard, will they allow average 'mericans to own Gold?

Whatever they choose, it'll be better for the strength of the dollar to be tied to a set price for Gold.

Who To Vote For

Well, IMO, if you're paying close attention to both political parties, the answer is, neither.

So, what do you do if you're a Republican member of Congress, and you fully understand that there's a power-mad, Constitution-ignoring, Marxist sitting in the Oval Office, and that Marxist is now demanding that you give him more power? More power than he has already granted himself! No need to ask Demoncrats since we already know what they'd say.

But what of Republicans, the very people many Americans are counting on to save the country? How do you think they would respond to such a demand from a president who has ignored and insulted congress more than any other president in our history? Really? Um,.... guess again...

The United States of PC

"Political correctness is a far greater threat to our freedom and liberty than is terrorism..."

(Daily Mail) A top high school student has been denied her diploma, all because she said the word 'hell' in her speech, given at the ceremony as the class valedictorian.

Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Oklahoma's Prague High School in May, making a speech that received laughter and applause. But when she went to collect her certificate from the school's administration office this week she was told she wouldn't be getting it until she wrote a formal letter apologising for using the "unacceptable" word. She was told she won't get the certificate until she writes a letter of apology.

The script for the teenager's speech, inspired by the film Eclipse: The Twilight Saga, had been given to the school in advance of the ceremony. It included the word 'heck', but in the excitement of the moment, she slipped up and said 'hell' instead, her dad explained. Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian. And now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her what do you want to do and she said "how the hell do I know? I've changed my mind so many times."' Furious, Nootbaar said she won't be saying sorry because she doesn't think she did anything wrong.

Adding to her anger is the fact that she starts college in a few days on a full scholarship. She earned that diploma she completed all the state curriculum,' said Mr Nootbaar. In four years she has never made a B. She got straight A's and had a 4.0 the whole way through. She has worked so hard to stay at the top of her class and this is not right.'

Of course, the school wasn't available for comment...

America? Not any more...

Friday Funnies. A Day Late

Blonde Jokes:  ya gotta love 'em...

A friend told the blonde, "Christmas is on a Friday this year." The blonde then said, "Let's hope it's not the 13th."

Two blondes find three grenades, and they decide to take them to a police station. One asked, "What if one explodes before we get there?" The other says, "We'll lie and say we only found two."

A blonde is in the bathroom and her husband shouts, "Did you find the shampoo?" She says, "Yes, but I'm not sure what to's for dry hair, and I've just wet mine."

A blonde goes to the vet with her goldfish. "I think it's got epilepsy," she tells the vet. The vet takes a look and says, "It seems calm enough to me." The blonde says, "I haven't taken it out of the bowl yet!"

A blonde spies a letter lying on her doormat. It says on the envelope "DO NOT BEND" She spends the next 2 hours trying to figure out how to pick it up.

A blonde's dog goes missing and she is frantic. Her husband says, "Why don't you put an ad in the paper?" She does, but two weeks later the dog is still missing. "What did you put in the paper?" her husband asks. "Here boy!" she replies.

A blonde is in jail. A guard looks in her cell and sees her hanging by her feet. "What the heck you doing?" he asks. "Hanging myself," the blonde replies. "It should be around your neck!" says the Guard. "I know," she replies, "but I couldn't breathe."

An Italian tourist asks a blonde, "Why do scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats into the water?" To which the blonde replies, "If they fell forward, they'd still be in the boat."

What Did You Expect?


Your Mooselamb brothers in the Mooselamb Brotherhood want you to know how very much they appreciate the fact that you called for the violent overthrow of Egypt's pro-Western leader, Mubarak, thereby allowing them to take complete control of that country. They will of course, show their appreciation, in the same manner, when they also take-over the other countries you are handing them, such as, Libya and Syria.

It's unfortunate that you couldn't also hand them, Detroit, Philly, Atlanta, East L.A., Newark, Northern Miami, DC, etc........ Praise be upon you...

With Friends Like These,...

You know that old saying, "with friends like these, who needs enemies."

It applies to a situation when your so-called "friends" are more of a danger to you than your enemies are. This seems to be the case in Afghanistan. More of our warriors are being killed by Afghan police officers and army soldiers than are being killed by Al-Qaeda. And, as usual, they are the same people we're training, arming, and funding. And, as is also usual in the middle east, terrorists have heavily infiltrated the ranks of people who "claim" they want to help their country. Of course, no one in the US govt. seems to have the brains to ask, "oh yeah, why now "? Why have you waited until now to help your country? Nor do they have the brains to ask, WTF ARE WE DOING HERE! And, if your answer to that question is, the 9/11 attack, remember, it wasn't Afghanistan (nor was it Iraq) or the Taliban that attacked us. It was Al-Qaeda.

We have been fighting in Afghanistan for over ten years now. It's the longest war we have ever fought, and IMO, the most meaningless one. IMO, for all that we've accomplished there, (whatever that may be) we could have done the same thing, and more, just with air power. Of course, we wouldn't have been able to build new schools, new roads, hospitals, shopping centers, movie theaters, swimming pools, and God-only knows what else our money has been wasted on. Once again, we went around the world to people who were/are perfectly happy living in the 10th century, and forced them to live as we say they should. And we wonder why people hate us?

Of the things that, IMO, will eventually destroy America, our busy-body, nanny-state foreign policy, and our mindless immigration policy, must be near the very top of the list...

Typical, Rich, Democrat...

Off and on I've heard tales about BHO's brother George, actually half-brother, and much of it was about how George's older brother Barack does ZERO, ZIP, NADA to help his family.
Well, here's another one.
A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George.  He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition.  He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills.  Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill.  So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union.  He was profusely grateful.  But before I hung up I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?”  He said, “I have no one else to ask.”  Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”
Actually, George has a real life brother who just happens to be the president of the United States.  (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.)  George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world.  Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.  
One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.”  Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.  
So much for spreading the wealth around.
Typical.  Obama wants to send foreign aid to Third World countries, he just wants to send OUR money to them.

So, What's Going On Here?

Many of us here are gun collectors, gun enthusiasts, and strong advocates for the 2nd Amendment, so we should be able to answer some simple questions on the subject. Perhaps.

1. Can you think of a rational reason why the National Weather Service would need, or should have, hundreds-of-thousands of rounds of Hollow Point pistol ammo?

2. Do you know why the Social Security Administration would also need hundreds-of-thousands of rounds of the same Hollow Point ammo?

Do They Smell Weakness?

It's a fact that an animal, especially a dog, can sense fear and weakness the instant you enter that animals space, and will often react with aggression. Political enemies are no different.

While the Marxist-in-Chief has decided to gut our military budget, and, at the same time, send weapons/aid/money to the Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria who disguise themselves as "insurgents", our enemies around the world are looking at us like wolves stalking at a wounded deer. And, with people like Vlad Putin, the hard-core, old-school, communist KGB agent back in charge of Russia, rational and knowledgeable people believe this is the very worst time to be pinching pennies with our military.

When an enemy fears you, he'll stay away. But, when that enemy senses that you are weak because you're under the control of a Marxist leader who actually hates our military, one who doesn't feel America is worth protecting, that enemy will become "aggressively adventurous ". Meaning, they'll try you to see how (or if ) you respond. This story shows how very little respect we have in the eyes of our enemies... phone is ringing OFF the hook!

In the last three weeks my phone has been ringing 5 or 6 times a day, with the campaigns calling.  It's mostly from the Left hand side too, given the questions.  I think they are in serious trouble.  Is anyone getting these calls, or are they burning up the heavily contested states?

Romney / Ryan were here a couple days ago they had to turn people away.  Somewhere between 6K & 12K   They had the same thing in other places since they announced Ryan as his VP candidate.

Joe Biden was here in my area yesterday, he got 'hundreds' of people. I can't find out how many 'hundreds', but they were at a NatGuard Armory, so I'm figuring 1 'hundreds'.

Todays Question:

So, what happens when a dumbo-eard Marxist puts a fat, ugly, radical leftist bull dyke, in charge of the massive Dept. of Homeland Stupidity?

A. The agency becomes the reincarnation of the Gestapo?

B. We learn the true meaning of, FUBAR?

C. Incompetence is raised to an art form? 

D. Qualified males are replaced by unqualified lezbos?

E. All of the above?

P.S. I read this story on this morning. One hour later, the story "mysteriously" disappeared from it's site. Hmmm... I instead had to take it from the very liberal NY Daily News, so keep that in mind...

He has lost his MFing mind!!!

Today in Colorado, Barack Insane Obumble said the following,

“I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry."

“I don’t want those jobs taking root in places like China, I want those jobs taking root in places like Pueblo,” Obama told a crowd gathered for a campaign rally at the Palace of Agriculture at the Colorado State Fairgrounds here."
He has finally and totally, lost his feeble mind.

As I said here and elsewhere before, he is SO insulated from reality, behind a wall of flaks and yes men that he truly believes that his efforts have worked.  If they're getting the family meal time news from CNN / MSNBC he IS doing great things, just ask Chris Matthews!  He thinks money for stuff like Solyndra WAS a great idea, but it failed ONLY because he and his lackeys weren't in charge of those green companies and their boards of directors.
The only thing more dangerous than a lying politician is one who rely believes his rhetoric.
 And the idea that there is some unlimited pool of funding out there for this idea, is a crazed fantasy.  We're so broke now we don't have a national pot to piss in, and he proposes to upgrade us to gold covered fixtures!  Idiot.

President or King?

 the U. S. Constitution Article I Section 9 Clause 8 states: "No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States. And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatsoever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State".
In The Federalist Papers # 69 referencing Article I Section 9 Clause 8, written by Alexander Hamilton comparing the power of the President to that of a King of Great Britain, where it refers to the President as 'The one' and the King as 'the other' it states in the last paragraph, "The one can confer no privileges whatever; the other can make denizens of aliens, noblemen of commoners; can erect corporations with all the rights incident to corporate bodies.

The dictionary describes "denizen" as one admitted to residence in a foreign country, an alien admitted to rights of citizenship.
So, in all actuality we should refer to the current President of the United States as King Barack Hussein Obama and therefore in violation of Article I Section 9 Clause 8 of the U. S. Constitution.

Abbott and Costello explain Obama's Accounting System.

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 9%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: You just said 9%.

ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that's 9%...

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?

ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.


ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work, can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment rolls, that would count as less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how you get to 9%. Otherwise it would be 16%. You don't want to read about 16% unemployment, do ya?

COSTELLO: That would be frightening.

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.

COSTELLO: I don't even know what I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a politician.

The ultimate question....does that mean that 25% of work capable Americans are not producing?   (besides those that don't produce anyway?)

the government continues to defraud the government

This one really gets my ire up.   And considering I am a pilot, that means it gets way, way up.

As a part time side job performed on weekends in the winter and early spring, between sessions of teaching people how to kill people that desperately need it, I help out a buddy of mine who has a franchise for a tax service in our town. 

some of the things that irk me are what people do such as:

---the polyg's who know that their single adult sons will draw that maximum EIC by making exactly $26,000 and claiming head of household with 3 of their younger siblings as dependants.  As a tax preparer, how am I to investigate that they really don' t live with their older brother? 

----the foreign nationals with Tax ID numbers or social security numbers that claim nephews & neices who also have social security numbers and also claim head of household with 3 dependants...especially with a whole group coming in is irksome, but I also understand that our "give till the only thing we have left to give is an IOU" government has passed laws making this legal.

On the other hand, I can't imagine 23,994 people living at the same address in Atlanta.  That house must be bigger than many small towns I have lived in.  Or 2,706 people sharing the same bank account.  This would be blatant fraud that our beloved government should maybe spend a few hours investigating, especially when the fraud appears to be in the millions of dollars! Instead of attempting a Jedi mind trick of "there is nothing here to see, please look at the man's wife who got sick after she gave up her insurance 6 years after her husband decided not to look for a new job"

Or maybe the government bean counters have determined that it is cheaper to give money away than to prosecute theives who can't afford their own lawyers, and quite possibly don't even live within our borders, thus requiring an extradition order.

While $7.3 million is a drop in the bucket compared to the $15,000 million debt the (notice I didn't say "our") president has helped us attain, it is still more than I would make in 100 years at my current salary.

Terry Goodkind, sci-fi/fantasy author,  I figured him to be a liberal of sorts just based off of his chosen profession (call me shallow).   Reading Faith of the Fallen, I have have come to a new conclusion.  Sadly, there is a huge number of our poplulation that would probably side with antagonists in that series, firmly in the belief that the only reason socialism doesn't work is because the right people haven't been in opposed to the only reason it doesn't work, is because there are free thinking human beings involved.

Fair Elections? LOL !

Fair elections? IMO, only a fool would believe that such things exists in this country.

On the one hand, we have Obummer's Dept. of Injustice suing several states simply because those states dare to require people to actually have to prove who they are, via a govt. issued photo ID, before voting. Yes, it's the very same type of proof you're required to have in order to drive, enter a govt. building, cash a welfare check, and many, many other things we routinely do in our daily lives. Of course, if you are the Marxist-in-Chief, and are trying every trick in the book to manipulate the upcoming election results, this tactic is critical, especially if you're doing everything you can to make sure tens-of-Millions of illegals can slip in and vote for you.

On the other hand, something else the Obamunists see as critical, is keeping as many of our brave and dedicated warriors from voting as possible. Apparently, the Mooselamb-in-Chief believes many of our warriors won't be voting for him. Perhaps he feels our troops might not want to see the Oval Office occupied by a full-blown, anti-American, anti-White, anti-Christian Marxist for another four years?

If there's anyone in this country who has clearly earned the right to vote, at any time, and in any way they can, it's the people who give their lives fighting for that right to vote. Isn't it bad enough that we are now a nation that takes better care of, and shows far more concern for, professional welfare recipients, junkies, queers, criminals, and just about anyone with a desire to destroy this country? Do we not owe the very best our society can produce something more?

Friday Funnies

So...Snorpht walks into a gay bar..
Wait a second. He said he was in a bar in California filled with liberals...
As I was saying, Snorpht walks into a gay bar!
