We got 8″ of snow last night after a beautiful day yesterday of 40-50F degree weather – a freaking heat wave relatively speaking.  And now the mercury is crashing, heading for -5F tonight.

I’ve been listening to people whinge and bellyache about this winter for months now.  Months.

And I honestly was able to tell them that I have not minded it.  I haven’t.  The drives haven’t been as dangerous as some years because it was so freaking cold, not a slushy 28 degree snow on warm soil.

Today… today was different.  Damn white sh*t.  Everywhere.

Coworker Laconic Pup sent this.  Awesome.  It is circling the web as he says, but it is still awesome.

second winter


Sheila Jackson-Lee is beyond stupider than a bag of hammers.


As far as mineral names go, “Ringwoodite” is about as wickedly funny as it gets.

I have always pondered on biblical flooding and said “No, really… where did all the water GO??”


Obama is right.  Congress doesn’t have the authority to vote something like this over the president because it does violate the whole checks and balances idea rather thoroughly.

President Obama is threatening to veto a law that would allow Congress to sue him in federal courts for arbitrarily changing or refusing to enforce federal laws because it “violates the separation of powers” by encroaching on his presidential authority.

[Too bad he’s so loose with the limits to his auth-or-i-TAY… – LK]

“[T]he power the bill purports to assign to Congress to sue the President over whether he has properly discharged his constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed exceeds constitutional limitations,” the White House Office of Management and Budget said Wednesday in a statement of administration policy. “Congress may not assign such power to itself, nor may it assign to the courts the task of resolving such generalized political disputes.”

However… he hasn’t the authority to disregard his duties.  All this stuff was already laid out in that 400 year old Constitution Jackson-Lee suddenly professes to believe in.  It is a nation of rules and laws that was set up to take power out of individual men’s and group’s hands.  They can change it via a 2/3 vote Amendment though.  Let’s do that.

Congress AND the idiot in the White House have both granted themselves far too much power not expressly given them.

Time to get rid of them all, my Angry Mob Voter friends.

Present, tense…

Well, I think it is pretty safe to say Putin has taken the measure of the west and determined that it poses him no threat.

Oh, I am sure we will make all sorts of scary sounding statements and someone will bring up the Budapest Memorandum, but Putin knows that no one has the nerve to rush in and start a conflict over Ukraine.

Of course even an idiot like me can have an opinion, and I could be wrong. But I don’t think I am wrong here. Putin is crazy-crazy and he knows everyone else knows it. He knows Obama is a cream puff. I would say there is only a 2-3% chance anyone will call Putin on it.

Now, when was the last time you remember someone invading another country in Europe-East? Did that end well? Did they promise it would be only the one time and it really was love? And that they wouldn’t do it again if everyone went along with it?

That China has immediately jumped on the bandwagon signals a sea change that surprises no one who pays attention.
On a friend’s office window. We will refer to her as “Major Headache”. She would appreciate that humor. She too gets migraines and agrees with me that a migraine is basically a slurpee tumor (brain freeze) like the worst you ever had that does not go away. For days.

Scientist proposes walls to stop tornadoes.

It does lead to a few questions.

1)  Really?
2)  Really?
3)  This wouldn’t have unintended consequences?
4)  Really?
5)  Where are you going to get the resources to do that?

I know!  Ship LA’s garbage over and make giant ski slopes out of it.  Or dams.  Or bicycle trails.

Whatever this guy got ahold of, more people need it.  It’s like he rolled in catnip for crazy people.

“If we build three east-west great walls in the American Midwest …. one in North Dakota, one along the border between Kansas and Oklahoma to the east, and the third one in south Texas and Louisiana, we will diminish the tornado threats in the Tornado Alley forever,” according to physicist Rongjia Tao of Temple University.

The walls would need to be about 1,000 feet high and 150 feet wide, he said. Tao is presenting his research next week at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society in Denver.


Now taking votes to see who should take Salma’s place at right as veeshir-bait.  No nibbles at all.  It used to draw him in.


Obama’s IRS has spoken… those of us who do not pay the fee/tax thing for Obamacare will face a:

shared responsibility payment

Look, if you don’t choose to use the word “penalty” you choose something else because you want to send a message.  If you choose words that sound like a utopian’s conformational wet-dream it means you want to be as ominous as possible without sounding like a threat.  And that is what Obama is all about.

Well done, Mr. Obama.  Well done.  You now sound like a scary dictator (or beloved leader) rather than merely behave like one on paper.

Pressed Freedom

You might walk away from this post thinking I believe what reporters tell me, and you are right to a point. You might think I think much of polls, which I don’t at all. But polls do sometimes have value.

In 2014 the US is in 46th place in terms of freedom of the press as shown in a Reporters Without Borders survey.

So yeah, I can link news articles. But for shits and giggles I searched out the results of all the years they did this. Here you go, the US world press freedom rankings from 2002 on. I wish the ranking went as far back as Nixon, but I will take this.

2002. 17
2003. 32
2004. 22
2005. 44
2006. 53
2007. 48
2008. 36
2009. 21
2010. 20
2011. 47
2012. 47
2013. 32
2014. 46

It is hardly the most transparent administration ever. How do I know it originates there? A fish rots from the head down.

It is very interesting. We got the post 9/11 bump I would have expected and then as the world relaxed I wasn’t surprised at the decline. We got a bounce that would correlate well with the coming of the Messiah changing of the guard and the (ig)Nobel Peace Prize but then tanked as rapidly as a proverbial three day old fish. There is a synopsis that goes along with each year but I have not read any of them prior to 2012.

But fairly consistently we suck and blow surprisingly bad given how proud we are of freedom of the press.


Have a cringe.


Have a Vermeer. Good art always relaxes me, like a kitten, just not quite as much.


Have some snow. Please.

Note:  Far too many hours working and minimal sleep with lots of caffeine.  I’m on a psycho-rocket ride into next week.  It’ll be fun.


I read the news today:

Sun unleashes massive solar flares...

What’s all the fuss about, because Obama did not do anything wrong.  Go talk to Bush Jr. about anything underhanded.

Immediately what came to mind was:

… White House Fingers Bush…


Funny thing is, O’s mouthpiece Carney did not come out and mention that the IRS thing happened even longer ago than Benghazi and should be dismissed as so much piffle.  He seems to have lost that particular trick.

Axlerod says the government is too big for Obama to handle.  Such a piquant bouquet to his bullshit.  Oh, Obama didn’t know about this, Obama had nothing to do with that, Obama wasn’t part of such-and-such planning… Is anyone else wondering just what it is he does do in the White House besides have lavish parties with Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, and the long list of star-studded sycophants?  I can’t tell what he does when he’s not doing all these things, not golfing, and not vacationing.

Keep an eye out as Obama becomes even more politically radioactive.  Next to fall will be when anyone that can find an escape hatch on the USS Immigration bails out except for the Gang of Eight who are so tightly holding each other’s privates as hostage they will never listen to those who they really must answer.

Sequester … not sure if there is another dynamic there other than the dems trying to buy back some credibility at the new higher rates.

If his lame duck doesn’t have AFLAC and gets lots of bedsores next fall is going to be interesting.  Maybe Bummercare™ can be scraped away or frozen off for the warty thing it is.

Remember how Obama came out in the beginning and said his will be the most transparent administration ever?

Here’s what came to mind then:  This is a lot like the guy in the conference hall at the hotel that stands up during the luncheon and announces “Just so you all know, I’m heterosexual.” and then sits down.

I was left thinking, “… Really?  What was the reason you felt you needed to share that?”

The Blaze added that government agencies other than the IRS treat conservatives crappy, too.  Imagine a bunch of Greenies going after land-rapers.  But it actually is more aimed at using the FOIA as a carrot and withholding FOIA as a stick.

So now you have a general mistreatment of a class by:  Taxing them more, taking away their guns, harassing them with the IRS, bringing in more people to live off of them, making them pay much more for what they were actually happy with already in terms of health care, now you are going to push them around using eco-terrorism, you’re going to read all their mail, listen to their calls, you’re going load up on billions of rounds of ammo, buy armored anti-mine capable troop carriers, lots of full body gear, and full-auto weapons.  Then add the electronic warfare and tracking from drones.  Then for good measure you insult their intelligence while displaying your lack of diligence with our ambassador and call it long ago.

Huh.  That has “Scary” writ all over it in big glowing letters.


Cruel Wife informed me that she saw Obama still has a fan club.  Woo-woo.

I’m going to guess that if you check IP addresses and trace them back far enough the physical address in meatspace is 1600 Penn. Ave.  and that there are three members.

IRS… you know where to find me.  Just ask the NSA.  Or look it up on a drone.

What surprises me is that there are still people able to act like they are shocked, as if this is a sudden revelation of a hitherto undiagnosed set of character flaws.  So anyway, I figure there is a certain percentage of people that still love him but it got a lot smaller with the toppling of the media donkey-fluffer elite.

Lemurita, if you are reading this, a donkey-fluffer goes around making donkeys look poofy.  No, don’t repeat that in school.

Yes, I’m in a mood.  Sue me.  Get in line after the IRS takes their cut.


My daughter asked me at the dinner table what the middle finger means, while “aiming” it in my direction.  Yes, I know 9-10 is not an unreasonable age for those questions to come up but I still didn’t quite see it coming until too late.  I feel like Mr. Magoo, with the whole world happening around me and I only dimly perceive what my children are doing until too late.

But we rolled with it.


Cruel Wife found an old card she got for her dad.  Frankly, that card can make me laugh every single day.

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.

My daughter Lemurita called me up yesterday to tearfully tell me that they found a baby squirrel in the basement that looked like it was dying.

Cruel Wife and Hackerboy and Lemurita gravely took the little guy in a shoebox outside in the shade.  I was resigned to having to dispatch it when I got home.  Lemurita came to grips with the “Daddy grew up on a farm and dispatching animals doesn’t even register on his radar” but at the same time the idea of doing it and distressing my daughter pained me.  She asked that when I dispatched it, I left it in a whole piece.   Then I spent the next hour trying to think of ways to break it’s little neck by hand or to mix up a humane lethal injection or perhaps some sort of gas.   I didn’t have a lecture bottle of nitrogen so that was out.  I had ether.  Chloroform.  Hanging.  Electrocution.    I felt drowning and immolation to be out of the question.  Guns in the city don’t fly well and besides, does one really need hollow-points to get rid of a baby critter?

So before I left for home I got another call and the little critter was looking like it might not have eaten some of the poison downstairs and might live, so they took it up to an animal rescue shelter.

Well, I asked them to take a pic.  Not a baby squirrel but a young chippy-munk.  They’re kind of cute, yes, but I’d easily dispatch an entire extended family of them without a second thought to avoid them nesting in my attic, and then go get a large pizza and a chocolate malt.  Rodent pee in your insulation and walls is best dealt with – extreme sanction.

Lemurita and Hackerboy, Patron Saints to Small Rodentia.


How pathetic is it when you get skunked and then have a reporter lob a softball question so you can explain how you dominated the scene?

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday that President Obama had decided to go to look at storm damage in Louisiana even before Mitt Romney announced his trip there.


A reporter traveling with the president asked Mr. Carney about the timing: “Had the decision to go to Louisiana on Monday been made before the White House learned that Mitt Romney would be going today?”

“Yes, it had,” Mr. Carney replied


Mr. Carney said the logistics of arranging a presidential visit take planning, and the White House decided Monday was the best time for logistics and so as not to get in the way of recovery efforts.

Is this what’s going to go down every time Romney does something right?  Suddenly Obama has to top it or talk about how it was his idea first?
Nah, far easier to believe that what the O is far more intent upon is how he’s going to save his re-election.
Occupy… occupy… occupy thine own skull wouldst thou, oh insignificant craven itinerant?

Republican National Convention protesters sobbed in each other’s arms as their weeklong series of protests came to an abrupt and unremarkable end.

As Mitt Romney delivered his remarks at the RNC on Thursday night, marking the end of planned events, demonstrators living in the “Romneyville” protest camp led a final march through the streets of Tampa.

Following a fragmented march against the GOP, TheDC’s photo team spoke to several protesters who said they were disappointed by low turnout at protests and the lack of open discussion between protesters and Republican leadership.Referencing the large number of bicycle-based police officers, a protester named Lash told TheDC, “we can see liberty crumbling on bikes.”

Lash, 26, described himself as a “conservative” and “a member of the Libertarian Party for six yearsas he sobbed on the shoulder of Mike, a fellow protester.

I just don’t know many conservative libertarian party guys that sob on their boyfriend’s shoulders when the whole drama of being a massive dick just doesn’t pan out.

But some protesters managed to do some “good” even if they totally negated it by being sociopathically crippled.

5. “We fed the homeless and picked up trash”

But really, they did.

Despite an ordinance in Tampa making it illegal for anyone to feed the poor, the movement marched out of their camp, called “Romneyville,” toward the homeless nearby and spread the wealth by sharing food they had prepared through the “Food, Not Bombs” system, which involves dumpster diving and preparing discarded food

Yeah, bra… we’re here to feed you some sun-dried aged chicken in a slightly-off mushroom-and-Thunderbird pan sauce.  Or you can share these dried out pop-tarts in not-quite sour milk.

Some protesters in Tampa did some deep thinking.

“I love that we have an anarchist forum here, and I really love us, but I hate that our forum can’t even talk with their conservative forum,” he said. “The police just silence us, the Republicans just silence us. We are just getting silenced everywhere we go. It’s like no one wants to even hear what we have to say.”                  Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2012/08/31/occupy-rnc-ends-in-tears-frustration/

“It’s like no one wants to even hear what we have to say.”

Hold on to that thought, son.   It may be that you can’t yet process it, but your precious-snowflake upbringing has not prepared you for the notion that you are nothing special.  That until you actually do something of worth to distinguish yourself, you don’t sit at the adult’s table.  You are perceptive though, it certainly is just like no one wants to even hear what you have to say.  Might want to ponder on the reasons why that could be.

More to come later but for now, I’m going to make mention of Snarky Basterd’s paddling of His Thin-Skinned Awesomeness (Obummer) when it comes to His twitter-twaddle account.  Right on, Snarky.

I love it when a point is scored and it is so obviously confirmed.


Okay.  It is now “later”.

Been working a lot the last few days – so I’m catching up on some remarks about current events.  In a moment.

First, you might be excused for thinking this article was describing more than one person at the Republican Convention in Tampa.

But you’d be wrong because it is from the early 90’s.  I have carried that damn thing around since before CW and I got married.  A pristine image of it can be found here.

Wait until I show off an original “Dog Faced Baby” I also had tucked away.


Human Organs Found in Storage Locker.

Officials at the medical examiner’s office in Pensacola say the remains of more than 100 people were found crudely stored in Tupperware containers, garbage bags and drink cups. Many of the remains were not identified.

Officials are trying to determine whether Berkland broke any laws regarding biomedical waste and the storing and disposing of human remains.

Really?  The highest priority was to ask the question “did he break any laws?” rather than ask the question “how can we get this sick puppy confined so he isn’t amongst the public?”… really?  

Taking work home is one thing but this is beyond that.  Way beyond.

Ann Romney: This Man Will Lift Up America!

“This is the man America needs. This is the man who will wake up every day with the determination to solve the problems that others say can’t be solved, to fix what others say is beyond repair. This is the man who will work harder than anyone so that we can work a little less hard.”


“I can’t tell you what will happen over the next four years. But I can only stand here tonight, as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an American, and make you this solemn commitment:

“This man will not fail.  This man will not let us down.  This man will lift up America!”

I don’t need Romney to work harder so I can work a little less hard.  That’s not the American Way and isn’t what “grit” and “intestinal fortitude” are made of.   Expecting the other guy to work harder so you can work less hard is what we’re trying to get rid of by getting Obama out of office (getting rid of socialism).

I also don’t care about Ann Romney, her motherhood, her grandmotherhood, wifehood as it pertains to electing our next President… Her husband is running for office, not her.  When I interview for a job my wife isn’t invited in by the prospective employer to be a part of that process.  

As to him failing… we’ll be the judge of that when the time comes, m’kay?  Yes, I’m in a mood tonight.

No, I’m not a liberal by even a tiny stretch.  Yes, I’m an American.  No, I don’t believe Romney is any more conservative than I am liberal.  Yes, he’s still way right of Obama.  Yes, I’ll gladly take him over Obama.

“Emergency” Tax on the Rich

Deputy Prime Minster Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal-Democrat Party [UK], has proposed a one-time tax on the wealth (rather than the incomes) of high-net-worth Britons.

One-time?  You really think it’ll only be ‘one time’?  What happens next time someone notices that the coffers are dry and more entitlements need to be paid?

Taxing the net-worth?  Talk about a totally contemptuous move to punish “the rich” just for having something.  It is a government-sanctioned mugging.

Telling it like it is, in part.  An excerpt from Ryan’s Republican Convention speech:

And I’m going to level with you: We don’t have that much time.

And he hasn’t even begun to make that clear enough and urgently enough.

Misplaced emphasis?

Wesley Shermatine, one half of the Speed Freak Killers duo, was reportedly let out of San Quentin’s death row  to help investigators search for victims, FOX40.com reported.

Shermantine aided investigators for the day, and was taken back to prison Sunday night.

Leonard Padilla, a bounty hunter, said Shermantine  was let out Sunday and is being offered reward money in exchange for bodies. Padilla believes the money is coming from the FBI and believes the reward will be paid to Shermantine per body.

The release was reportedly a test of sorts. If remains are found with information from Shermantine, he will be let out again.

Reward money?  Release?  How about “if you don’t tell us we’re going to start cutting off your body parts without anesthesia”?

Russia sends attack choppers to Syria.

AP – The Obama administration said Tuesday that Russia is sending attack helicopters to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and warned that the Arab country’s 15-month conflict could become even deadlier.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was “concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria.”

In a test of wills between Putin and Obama I see Putin outclassing our president by a huge margin.  The only way O will have enough balls to go head to head with Putin is if Hillary loans him her set.


Update:  It now appears to be turning into a pushy-pushy name-calling match.  Each side swears that they wouldn’t ever never supply weapons to any faction in Syria.  MMM-mmm, yeah I guess I buy that.

This is one of those brain metaphor things, where what I’m thinking is not going to be properly captured by writing without lots of trimming and re-reading so I’m going to fine-tune it throughout the evening.  Think of this one as a work-in-progress and don’t leap to judgment – ask me if something seems wrong-headed.  I’m known to **** things up at times.  Yes, it’s happened once or twice.

I listen to Michael Savage’s show as I drive home on some nights.  Honestly, some nights he just irritates the hell out of me because he’s got an even bigger ego than I do.

He had Jeff Kuhner guest-hosting last night and Kuhner was doing a big buildup to (savaging) Obama’s upcoming speech from Afghanistan.  Kuhner is just not my favorite radio host.  He has some fawning-over-Savage behaviors that annoy the hell out of me and actually make me embarrassed for him.  And while it is his right and his job to voice his opinion, he said a few things that were troubling.  Maybe I feel different about the subject matter now that it is a year later and am going to contradict what I said then.  I went back through old posts and didn’t find anything along the lines of tonight’s critique (I’m not fond of hypocrisy and hate it in myself) and so I’m cautiously venturing an opinion on this.

First, Kuhner was supportive of the notion that we should all have been dancing in the streets when Osama bin Laden was killed and made mention of people at ball games and other events cheering and dancing and drinking.

Isn’t that awful reminiscent of the Palestinians dancing in the street on 9/11 and Iraqis abusing and burning the bodies of four American contractors and then hanging them up in 2004?  Should we be publiclygleeful?  Or, upon news of the death of a vermin like ObL should we say in a very statesmanlike way “About time, good riddance, you evil pox on humanity”?

Do you see the difference?  I went out and bought two different newspapers the day ObL was erased.  Did I dance in the street and fire weapons in the air?  Uh, no.  Was I satisfied that the guy who purposely targeted innocent people was terminated with prejudice?  Yes.  Yes, I was.  Immensely satisfied, because a form of justice had been done.  There can be no denying that I thought it was fitting that his last moments were in fear.

Maybe it’s just a matter of decorum.  I don’t much care for Occupy idiots who get all hippy-dippy and love themselves when they crap in the street like they’re entitled in some way to act in that manner.  Tea Party folks on the other hand have been well-mannered and self-policing to a much higher degree.  Their relative actions speak for themselves even if many thumbsuckers and fence-sitters seem unable to rationally work through those stark differences.  Think of it as the contrast between receiving a kindergarden diploma vs. finishing a real degree, summa cum laude.  I don’t think I can stress that enough.

Second, Kuhner heaped scorn and coals on Obama for his personal acceptance of our troop’s heavy lifting as his own accomplishment in getting rid of ObL.  I agree with Kuhner, scorn and coals should be heaped on Obama’s head.  But then Kuhner said our soldiers deserve the public recognition and praise.

Well, look… if our SEALS were the type of guys that needed to be in the spotlight I truly doubt they’d be there in the first place.  I imagine that something as simple as a “Thank you for what you did” from their CiC and knowing that there are Americans who appreciate them would be adequate.  They did a good job.  There were some scary moments and they lost a helicopter but they went in – mission accomplished.  And the SEALS – as one – are perfectly within their rights to be pissed with Obama for his peacock strutting while he sat there looking like a proud toddler who has just had a bowel movement in a real potty.  The guy is nowhere near leadership material, the Democrat’s ludicrous ad with Bill Clinton’s glowing praise be damned.

But do the special ops guys want a ticker-tape parade and medals and real public recognition?  I’m kind of thinking not.  They are selected for their expertise in not being seen and getting sh*t done when no one else can do it – because you’ve done a good job when no one has noticed you were there while you were doing what you did.   Yes, we have other special forces that are as capable, and it is not my point to elevate one over another, because all of our special forces and armed forces deserve a lot of respect.

I’ve mentioned this before but I make it a point to try to say to every veteran I run into, at least once in my crossing paths with them, “Thanks.  Really.”  I made it a point to turn to my dad and say exactly that once I was old enough that there was no denying that I could only mean it because it stemmed from thought and experience, and sincere appreciation.  And I always mean it and I hope to hell it says enough.  I was a proud daddy when my little girl (Lemurita) went out in the 4th of July parade to personally thank one of the vets marching down the street.  I’d like to think it made his day, too.  I think it did.

I’m babbling.  It’s the hangover from the dry-erase marker sniffing all day, I’m sure.


One would think Stoaty at sweasel.com must’ve done this.  She’d do this kind of awesome.  But no, this was from the 50’s.  Fun to look at them, and scary.

Even the “Weasels Ripped My Flesh” line at the bottom smacks of Stoaty but it isn’t her.  Wow.

I found it because of Brockway at Cracked-dot-com.  Damn them.

Romney is appealing to my pro-gun nature by telling me what Obama is going to do to my gun rights if he gets re-elected.

Well, friggin’ DUH.  I knew that much, you bonehead.

“If we are going to safeguard our 2nd Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.” – The latest in a long stream of RINO’s, Mitt Romney

Just what we need – a leader to tell us that ducks like water, that rain is wet, unrefrigerated mayonnaise is bad, and that rabid skunks don’t make good pets.

Tell me something I don’t know, like what YOU will do to ensure that states are controlled by the federal government in only one way when it comes to guns:  That the right to keep and bear arms will not be infringed at any level.  Saying “He won’t, I will” tells me nothing.  As a governor who championed health care after being elected in a liberal state, he doesn’t gain unconditional and total acceptance from me without demonstrating a commitment and telling me of a solution that he might have in this area.  I’m not fond of gun regulations that only hinder law-abiding citizens and put them at risk if they defend themselves.

Really,  though, my disgust is irrelevant.  It’s not like I have any choice – because primaries are not done all in one day the first states out of the gate pretty much decide what oversized, patched, mismatched, gaudy-colored hand-me-down candidates I get to choose from.  So my choice is now Romney or Obama.  That’s not a choice.

Even that was an illusion of choice.  It wouldn’t matter who won the nod from the republicans (besides Paul), the vote is not really FOR a candidate, it is AGAINST Obama.  Plain and simple, Ron Paul’s approach would be draconian and mess things up by trying do eliminate too much at once.


Let me ask you this…  Would THIS happen if everyone had guns with which to defend themselves?

Proof? Here’s proof.

Well, Santorum just managed to prove to me that he should never ever ever be allowed within 500 feet of the White House, much less be President.

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday said Republicans should give President Barack Obama another term if Santorum isn’t the GOP nominee… – CBSlocal.com

That shows a serious lack of good judgment.  Everybody says stupid things at times but some things are so stupid nobody says them, except for defective people.  This guy is a defective conservative.  My stupid thing was to think Santorum was a better choice than Romney.  He erased that.

NOBODY ranks below Obama at this point.  People better get it in their heads – you may not like Romney (I don’t, not at all) but I’ll willingly, gladly, and with a smile on my face pull the lever for him if he’s my only alternative to Obama.  Or I’ll do it with a grimace and pray for that meteor strike to wipe us all out.  Either way, no more Obama in the next term is a win-win.

Gingrich may be an ass but he’s got more on the ball, apparently, than Santorum.  He’s not a dumb ass.

Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama.  – The view as it is seen by the eye of Newt

That’s all I’ve got to say.


Not responding much to commenters lately – so sorry – very very busy and lots happening everywhere in life lately.  It’s been real.


Tomorrow… I post another rant about real racism.

I’m going to let it speak for itself.
