This is our flag.

If you want to make a statement about patriotism, do so.  Don’t rip off the idea in a cheap “dumb it down for the masses” hipster way.

Points to note:

  • America’s flag has 13 stripes (colonies)
  • Obama’s flag has five, probably signifying The Fifth Column
  • America’s flag has stars (states)
  • Obama’s flag has one central piece, a fake hope diamond (thank you, Dr. Savage)
  • America’s flag is vibrant with confident bold colors
  • Obama’s flag is washed out and painted with childlike strokes.

This is Obama’s flag.

As my good friend Enas Yorl noted, I am a predominantly Asian cooking fanatic.  I just feel better physically after eating asian food and it is a way of life for me.  Luckily Cruel Wife is usually tickled enough that she did not have to make dinner that I can get away with fixing this stuff 4 times a week minimum.

It occurred to me to ask:  Would it be of any value to you if I posted pictures of the recipes as they look after plating? They won’t be professional pictures but enough to recognize carbon-based food elements.

Son-in-Law Eggs (Thai) – take a hardboiled egg, cut it in half, fry it face down in oil then make a sauce of some oil, brown sugar, and fish sauce.  Pour the sauce over the eggs and sprinkle with chilies and fried onion flakes.

Note:  You will mock me.  I know you are sitting there and thinking “God what hideous concoctions this twisted tool eats!”   You will be somewhat justified since there is no equivalent flavor in any dish I have ever tasted.  I took these to a party and they were all gone within minutes.  Open your mind up and try them.  Would I lie to you, dear Constant Reader?  Someday I shall make Tea Eggs and post the results

Chili Prawns and Bean Stir-Fry (Vietnam) – Honestly, I have not tried this yet but I am going to tonight.  This very evening.  I can’t see how it could possibly lose.  I just can’t.  I’ll keep you posted.

Update: Bad pain night, and I did not make the dish, instead ordered chinese with triple-dose of chili sauce to get the endorphines flowing.

Crisp Chili Beef with Orange Rind and Szechuan Peppercorns (Undetermined) – Very intense dish, and I have rounded it out with copious amounts of broccoli to stretch the quantity and make it more healthy

Shrimp with Red Peppers and Basil (Thai) – A quick and tasty dish, always a favorite here.

The recipes can be found at the top of the page or here.


This just in from Fox News.  Thanks for reporting, Fox!

Flags just went up!  Not that it has any bearing on the candidates but it sure paints a general picture…

McCain Chastises Dems for Discarding American Flags

So all these flags are found in the dumpsters behind the DNC Convention after it was over and they are then brought to McCain’s rally.  But:

But Democratic convention organizers claimed the flags were not going to be discarded — but instead were snatched from the site of Obama’s historic address to carry out a “cheap political stunt.”

Are you SURE you want to accuse Boy Scouts and Veterans of participation in carrying out cheap political stunts?  Oh, that works.  Well sure the Boy Scouts are part of a civilian paramilitary group and the vets are probably all mercenaries now…

Damon Jones, spokesman for the Democratic National Convention Committee, released a statement saying McCain should applaud the fact that thousands of American flags were “proudly waved” at their convention.

Proudly waved. And then thrown away. I don’t throw away things I’m proud of, I keep ’em.  I throw away things I think are shite.  Ergo, I keep my flags.  But then, I’m proud of my country all the time, too.  🙂

But that’s not the point, the Dems say:

“But instead his supporters wrongfully took leftover bundles of our flags from the stadium to play out a cheap political stunt calling into question our patriotism,” he said.

So does anybody really believe that there was a contemporary Flag-gate operation going on?  We’ll see what Bob Woodward scrapes off the bottom of his shoe next.

Notice “bundles of our flags from the stadium” does not refute that they were in the trash.  Words have power, words mean something, and therefore omission of words is every bit as important and as nuanced as inclusion of them.  Sort of like how things hang on what the definition of the word “is” is.

But on another note… Fox editors (foxnews.com) you might want to check your work a bit more carefully…
