How Stupid ARE you?

Do you keep voting for "Democratics" because they care about the poor and the environment?  Do you HATE the ReTHUGlicans because they're for the evil rich and evil corporations?  Sweet, you're a genius and you think like me.

You know what I like best about the genius Democratics?  I like how they block oil drilling.  I like how they fight it tooth and nail at EVERY opportunity.  I like how Obama blocked drilling in the gulf ... that's right, just blocked it.  When will it open again?  Nobody knows.  What will happen to the people who worked in that industry? Nobody knows.  But that's not what's important.  The important thing is we've got our boots on the throat of the evil oil companies.

But if you're a good lib, you know that "BIG OIL" isn't the only evil energy corporation out there ... no, no, far from it ... don't forget COAL ... EVIL, FILTHY, DISGUSTING COAL ... WE MUST STOP IT.

Meanwhile, here's my electric bill since 2004.  How is yours? This is quite the mystery, no?  Who could have predicted this?  Well, it can't continue for long, right?



Here's a little jolt from the past (2004.)
The average price for regular unleaded gasoline jumped to a record high $2.017 a gallon nationwide, the government reported, up 7.6 cents from the prior week and 52 cents from a year earlier.

Here's gas prices (and a trend line) since 2004.


Yes, and how's your family's income been doing?  No wonder we're in a recession., huh?

You know who's causing the financial hardships of the country?  That's right ... it's evil corporations.  Evil corporations are making big profits and laughing at you during this recession.  THEY were the ones (behind the scenes, of course) that caused the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco.  THEY were the ones spending our country into oblivion and breaking the back of America.  THEY are the ones writing ridiculous-ass environmental regulations and REQUIRING themselves ... voluntarily ...  to spend ridiculous amounts of money to comply.  Yes, money they could have spent on hiring people and making more money went instead to applying selfless and altruistic handcuffs to themselves.

Year after year they've increased the demands on themselves  THEY were the ones harping constantly about global warming and throwing billions of your tax money at any jackass (Al gore) who claimed to have a plan to combat it.  Yes, I know congress actually did it but these evil companies no doubt encouraged ... or even bribed them to do so.

So as time goes by, don't forget where your anger should be placed ... squarely on the shoulders of the evil rich and evil corporations ... you know ... just like the media has been telling you for decades.  Yes, it seems to me the time for pitchforks approacheth.

You know, when you think about it, this hasn't just started recently.  How long has this been going on?  What percentage of your life does this amount of time represent?  Are you young?  Do you think this will pass and that soon evil corporations will stop being the bane of your existence?

Are you old and see that this has been getting worse and worse over your lifetime and it's never going to stop now?  Do you further see how the evil corporations have stolen your freedom  (and a great deal of your money) for life ... and that it's too late now to get it back?  Well, it might be too late for you ... but what about your kids and grandkids?

How stupid are you?

So you're coasting along on the interwave ... doing your daily reading or what have you ... when what do you notice? Why it seems to be an out-of-place comment or statement. You discount it and move on ... only to find another similar comment/statement lurking elsewhere.

Upon further investigation you find the comment contains a link to a commercial site ... that's right, it's a ruse ... a come-on ... a HO-AX. So, of course you blow it off because ... "what kind of REPUTABLE company does this sort of thing?" You know, just like anyone with a half a brain would do.

Thinking a little more you may start to wonder "Just how ethical is a company the misleads and tricks its customers? How do they make money? There aren't enough people stupid enough to fall for that." But really, you don't think much further than that because, what's the sense in it ... you'd NEVER buy anything from a company like that, right?

Now, you have to correct yourself. If you really think there aren't enough stupid people for them to make a profit, I have to ask you, when's the last time you deleted an email claiming that someone had some money for you. Believe me, there are PLENTY of morons out there who will fall for this tack.

Ok, now that we've proven that the only ones to fall for this are morons, let's think further. If you own the company and some moron has clicked your link, you might as well go ahead and charge 10 times the going prices, right? "Oh-oh, better not ... the moron might catch on ... oh wait ... he won't catch on ... HE'S A MORON ... WHEW ... WHAT A RELIEF."

Hey, any o' you morons need some sound equipment?  Look into these babies.  Quick, they won't last at these prices ... plus ... look at the pretty colors ... shiny ... spawkowee.


I went to their site and clicked the "contact me" button.  I left them a choice note.  Now I'm going to look for their comment spam ... and wherever I find it, I'm going to leave a comment about how overpriced they are ...  and about how anyone who buys from them is an idiot. 

Here ... I'll just practice a bit:

"Dr Dre Beats" the crap out of morons with too much money.
I'll bet Ferrari and Lamborghini were happy to share their name with a company that spams blogs for advertising.
Look, at all the names they're using ... Kobe Bryant, Lady Gaga, Miles Davis ... well, if THEY'RE involved, this MUST be a good product.  Only an idiot would fail to see the implications here.

I'll give them another tried and true idea for hammering imbeciles.  They ought to ban the sale of their products to dumb people.  They ought to require people to swear online (under penalty of  law) that their IQ is over 120 before they qualify to purchase these products.  THAT would cut down on the ripoff of poor, poor morons /sarc.

Liberals- Give Until it Hurts... You.

Liberals never tire of discussing their own generosity, particularly when demanding that the government take your money by force to fund shiftless government employees overseeing counterproductive government programs.

They seem to have replaced "God" with "Government" in scriptural phrases such as "love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." (Matthew 22:37)

This week, we'll take a peek at the charitable giving of these champions of the poor.

In 2009, the Obamas gave 5.9 percent of their income to charity, about the same as they gave in 2006 and 2007. In the eight years before he became president, Obama gave an average of 3.5 percent of his income to charity, upping that to 6.5 percent in 2008.

The Obamas' charitable giving is equally divided between "hope" and "change."

George W. Bush gave away more than 10 percent of his income each year he was president, as he did before becoming president.

Thus, in 2005, Obama gave about the same dollar amount to charity as President George Bush did, on an income of $1.7 million -- more than twice as much as President Bush's $735,180. Again in 2006, Bush gave more to charity than Obama on an income one-third smaller than Obama's.

A classic case of "Lib Think."

Jewish Children at Auschwitz
This is what actual "victims" look like.

Excerpts from the article: (Bold is mine)

MIAMI – Five young men who died of carbon monoxide poisoning in a South Florida motel room were constant companions ...

They were celebrating a birthday Sunday night when they were overcome by carbon monoxide from a car they left running in a garage under their motel room, police said. The teens' friends told police that the car was having engine trouble, and they had probably left it running so that they wouldn't get stuck with a car that wouldn't start, police spokesman Carl Zogby said.

The group's car was found running in a closed garage underneath the room. A door to a staircase up to the room had been left open, and high levels of carbon monoxide were found inside, Zogby said.

Authorities identified the dead as Juchen C. Martial, 19; Peterson Nazon, 17; Jonas Antenor, 17; Jean Pierre Ferdinand, 16; and Evans Charles, 19. All lived within blocks of each other in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood.  Well, let's see ... a bunch of teenagers alone in a motel room ... sure, that's sounds perfectly natural ... nothing unusual at all ... to a brain-dead lib.

The group rented the room Sunday around 9 p.m. to celebrate Martial's 19th birthday. Yes, because there we can pretend to be grown ups doing grown up things.  We can't celebrate a birthday at home like normal people ... we're too good for that ... besides, we'd have adult supervision and that'd be such a downer.

Martial's family had celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day and had gone to church on Sunday, and they didn't know he was going out later that evening, said his aunt, Magalie Martial.  What's this?  Their little angel neglected to tell them anything?  Probably just an oversight.  I know that when I was a teenager going to spend overnight in a motel room with my friends, it may have easily slipped my mind and I may have forgotten to inform my dad.  And ... if that ever DID happen, believe me when I tell you that carbon monoxide would have been the much gentler way to go.

I'm exaggerating of course but I need to tell you that would have been such a serious offense at my house that, had I been 19, I'd have been kicked out permanently.   My dad just didn't stand for that kind of crap ... at all.  He was what the libs might call an "authoritarian."  He made us kids follow rules and there was punishment involved if you failed to follow them ... and I'm not talking about some namby-pamby "time-out" either.  As it is, I left home at 17 ... you know ... cuz I wanted to make my own rules.)  Libs don't think of that.  They want to stay at home and not follow the rules ... they're too good for rules.  The don't like being oppressed.
Juchen Martial was the oldest grandchild in a close-knit, traditional Haitian family, she said. He was finishing high school and working part-time at a Wendy's, but he still was expected to meet a curfew every night. And he met the very strict curfew ... you know ... unless he didn't feel like it.

Martial's grandmother was shocked to find he wasn't home when she returned from work late Sunday. When she called him, he told her, "I went to a little party. I'll be right back," Magalie Martial said.  Hmmm, granny's raising this kid?  I'm shocked.  I love how the kid told her what he'd be doing instead of the other way around.  Well, we don't want to crush the little Einstein's creativity now, do we?

They didn't hear from him again.

"Juchen and a bunch of friends died in a hotel, which we did not know about," Magalie Martial said. "That's what hurts the family."  So, if you knew about it then the family would be ok with it?  Sheesh @ libs.  They're always squeezing in a "and that's the important thing" or some such phrase.  And the other libs all nod their melons in acknowledgment that someone just said something profound (the holy grail of the lib.)

Nazon's family said they had seen one of the teens driving the car just before Christmas. When the car showed up in news reports after the five bodies were found Monday, Nazon's mother knew something was wrong. She had been calling her youngest child's phone all morning, but he never answered.  All morning?  What about all last night?  I guess the jourrrrrnalist didn't feel it was necessary to "delve" into this area.  I mean, what would be the purpose?  After all, someone might get the idea it was THEIR FAULT!  Someone might get the feeling that they're a loser.  See, I want to know why the cops weren't out looking for these kids the night before.

Immacula Antenor came to the Nazons' home to share their grief, but she found it hard to talk about her son, Jonas. She softly described the group as "good boys," and both women shrugged at the idea of them throwing a party in a hotel room.  "Both women shrugged at the idea of them them throwing a party in a hotel room"  ... as in "what's the big deal?"  And THIS is the classic case of the liberal being unable to learn ... to cognificate ... to capisky.  So brainwashed is the lib that he must always think the way the media tells him ... the way his lib friends think ... he must NEVER veer from this path, lest his friends think him insane.  Ever notice that libs never argue with each other?  They're too busy acknowledging each others' genius to have any meaningful discussion.  Meanwhile, conservatives argue amongst themselves all the time ... but that discussion is for another day and  post.

Nazon and Antenor had not told their mothers much about their plans, except to ask to borrow some cash. Martial was "a sweet boy, not a bad boy," and there was no reason to worry, Nazon's mother said.  Yeah ... "Hey mom, gimmee some cash and don't ask any of your stupid assed questions, you got me?  I'll be home when I damn well feel like it."

"Five people came to celebrate a birthday," Immacula Nazon said. "Now they're victims."  Yes ... VIC-TIMS ... GAAAAA ... nobody could have predicted this .... what a cruel, CRUEL twist of fate ... totally out of the blue.  WE MUSN'T BLAME OURSELVES!!!

This is just another example of the libs abusing language.  They're constantly engaged in hyperbole ... except, they actually believe their own bulls**t.  "Victims?"  They called these kids "victims" and the jourrrrrnalist doesn't question it.  Why doesn't the jourrrrnalist question it?  Hey, the answer might make someone feel bad ... plus, you have no real need to know the answer ... you might learn something.  Besides, if you're thinking the way we want you to, the question will never occur to you anyway.

Wait a minute- a Liberal social program that DIDN'T work???

Say it isn't so!


Okay- first of all, they're talking about Indian Reservations. Last time I checked, they have their own laws and they're treated as sovereign nations. That's why they can have legal casinos in a state where gambling is otherwise illegal.

Well, the whole idea of a Reservation of any kind is ridiculous to me. You can debate the white man's invasion all you want but the fact is that when two cultures compete for the same resources, the stronger one either kills, or enslaves the weaker one. This is demonstrated innumerable times throughout history. Of course, the vocal minority got involved and decided that we should give their land back. Well not all of it. Just some of it.

Nobody thought about the fact that as a nomadic society, they'd need thousands of square miles to perpetuate their lifestyle as they knew it. Nobody thought about the fact that even without war, our influence would change and ruin their lifestyle forever.

Just like a well-intentioned Liberal "rescuing" a wild animal, they saved these Native Americans and put them on reservations. Reservations which are the equivalent of putting a Polar Bear in a 2,000 foot enclosure. All you do is prolong death.

They would have been much better off if they had simply integrated into our society rather than trying to subsist in these Reservation enclosures where they'd subsist without natural resources, dignity or any hope.

Now, decades later, there's no turning a blind eye to the terribly conceived plan so the Libs say, "how can this happen... in... America?"

Well, they're not in America and the only way they'll stand a chance is if they come here and adapt and adjust to our way of living. Oh- and stop listening to idiot Libs who act like they mean well but in fact they're only trying to figure out ways to keep themselves employed and busy- even if it's at the expense of an entire culture's well-being.

Entire article here at The Daily Beast.

Libs find key to eternal life ... not really



The other day I'm driving along thinking away (as is my wont ... when I'm not trying to fend off some impending doom) and it occurred to me that libs sure love to show people when they've learned something (even if they haven't.) Seriously, think about it ... it's one of their very favorite things to do ... especially in a group of other libs. Yes, they love to all sit around in awe of how smart they all are.

Get a group of them together and they'll all try to out-calm each other. "I'm more calm than you. I speak more softly and I quickly realize when I've learned something (or should have learned something.) Whenever I'm faced with that situation (and I try to ensure it's as often as possible when I'm in a group of like-minded groupthinkers)I nod my head and say 'OHHHhhhh.' This ensures that all present realize that I have grasped the concept and am totally in awe of its significance ... TOTALLY in awe."

They'll nod their pea and make some verbal acknowledgment that a particular piece of information is VERY profound ... very profound indeed. Yes, that's profound ... don't YOU think it's profound? Let's all behave as if we just found the key to eternal life.

More results of the "PEW NEWS IQ" poll

A couple of days ago I posted a link to the PEW NEWS IQ TESTHere are the overall results of all adults who took the test.


The only thing I have to say about this is, in my opinion, this test actually slants the results.  That is to say, I think the "average" person would score much ... MUCH worse on this test.  I figure, if you're taking this test, you probably have an interest in such things and you are paying more attention than your "average" person.

Then again, the PEW center COULD have FORCED random hoppage off the street to take the test ... or paid them in some way.  I might even be able to find out that info but I'm just not that interested.  It's just something that occurred to me.

LOL @ less than half the peeps know which party just won a majority in the House of Representatives.  No wonder congress is wrangling us like goats with wallets ...  always stepping in our pens and inspecting every little thing ... then poking us between the eyes saying "I can't WAIT for the next rodeo, dumbass."

Swedish Palace Guard Has Loaded Weapon Taken by Armed Santas

Swedish Palace Guard Has Loaded Weapon Taken by Armed Santas: "

This is funny, but serious. The Swedish Royal Guards are there to protect the Royal Family. Perhaps, more than anything, it symbolizes how Europe has disarmed itself in the face of real threats. A Swedish paper reports:



Two men, dressed in Santa hats and masks, surprised and attacked the guard.


The men stole the guard’s gun, which according to police was a loaded automatic weapon.


“This is serious. I have a hard time believing it is a prank. It might be premeditated,” said Anders Krook, station commander at the Norrmalm police.


Because the Royal Palace has been deemed an object to be protected (skyddsobjekt), guards are to have loaded weapons, Lieutenant Colonel Rickard Beck-Friis Häll told TT news agency.


After the incident on Thursday, they will review all of the regulations with the soldiers, including the level of force that the guards may use.


“We have the right to use the force that is necessary to defend ourselves and objects to be protected. In this case, we will review what happened,” Beck-Friis Häll said.


He emphasized that the event was extremely unusual and he has never hear of a similar incident during his 30-year-career.



At night, two guards are posted the Royal Palace , and they are both armed with an AK-5 with a bayonette. They are posted so that they are within sight of each other, according to Beck-Friis Häll.


Since he doesn’t know the details, he refrained from commenting on last night’s event, but said there are procedures in place the guards are to follow in such situations.


“I don’t know what level of force the robbers used and if they threatened, but firing a gun in the last course of action,” Beck-Friis Häll said.


When a guard gets his gun swiped because he was afraid to fire it, perhaps firing a gun should be the second to last last course of action and the last course of action should be to chase after your gun. Luckily for the Swedish (and all Libs), they don't feel the sensation of embarrassment.

Test your grip, genius


Feel like testing your grasp of current events?  This one made me feel a little lame.  You all know how I run around blasting off at the mouth ... no no, don't protest ... I DO ... REALLY ... SERIOUSLY!!!  Anyway, I think I know every damn thing and get my feet all in cement about it at times.  Turns out, I don't ... no no ... REALLY!!

I answered the questions and I was thinking I was right but, on many of them,  I wasn't absolutely sure.  When the carnage was over, I got two wrong.
Question #7 - Is the national inflation rate reported by the government closer to: 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%?

Question #11 - On which of these activities does the government spend the most money? a) National Defense, b) Medicare, c) Interest on the national debt, d) Education
I wasn't going to post these questions because I thought it would make it easier to cheat but then I realized, cheaters are going to cheat ... that's what they do ... it allows them to show someone else they're smarter than they really are, and let's face it, that's hard to resist.

My friend Geary sent me an email with the link to this testYou can try it if you want.  Feel free to brag in the comments.

On Monday I'll post a chart of the overall results of all adults who took the test and you can put in your two cents on that if you want.

Merry Christmas!

WTF - WTF?

The CIA has designated a "Task Force" to look into the whole Wikileaks scandal. And quite appropriately, it's named "the Wikileaks Task Force," or in governmentalese, the "WTF."

Geniuses.

"Blackout in a Can"

This sort of news by consensus reminds me of "weapons-grade anthrax" that all the MSM was chanting in late 2001.

5 Weird & Wonderful Uses For Wolfram Alpha

5 Weird & Wonderful Uses For Wolfram Alpha: "

wolfram alpha search engineWe’ve all heard of Wolfram Alpha, the website that makes your computer like the ones in Star Trek. Ask it any question involving numbers, from the comparative net worth of Apple and Microsoft to the digits of pi, and you’ll get an answer. These sorts of calculations are useful, the kinds of thing Kirk might ask his computer.

I, if given the chance, would ask Kirk’s computer really stupid/awesome things. Like whether I’m drunk, whether I’m fat or how common my name is compared to my friend’s. Luckily, Wolfram Alpha can answer stupid/awesome questions! Let’s take a look at some weird and wonderful uses for the Wolfram Alpha search engine.

Am I Drunk?

Wondering if you’re too drunk to drive? Wolfram Alpha has you covered. Just type “am I drunk” into the knowledge engine and you’ll be presented with a nifty little questionnaire:

wolfram alpha search engine

You need to remember how many drinks you’ve had, how long you’ve been drinking, how much you weigh and what your gender is (note: if you can’t remember any of these points you are too drunk to drive. Sleep on the floor or call a cab).

Fill all of this in and you’ll see your current blood alcohol content, the legal limit for driving in your country and how many hours you need to wait until you’ll be under the legal limit for driving. Don’t believe me? Try it out yourself by running the search, or by clicking here.

How Old Am I?

Okay, I’m sure you’re probably well aware of your age (depending, of course, on the results of the above test). But if you hate trying to figure out how old someone else is based on their birthday consider this a really quick way to figure it out. Type “how old am I” into Wolfram Alpha and you’ll see something that looks like this:

wolfram alpha

Fill in the information, get an answer. You’ll even get a handy chart comparing the resulting age with the national average of your country. Neat.

Run the search yourself, or simply click here.

How Common Is Your Name?

Wonder if your name is more common than your friend’s? Simple. Type your name and his name, separated by a comma, into Wolfram Alpha. You’ll get a nifty chart for comparison:

wolfram alpha

As you can see, Justin is a younger name than Mark, though both names are very common. Interesting.

Try typing your own name into Wolfram Alpha to play with this trick, which I discovered via the Freakonomics blog. Their recent movie includes an entire section on the numbers of names, if that is interesting to you.

Body Mass Index

I kind of wish this one would come up if I typed “am I fat?“, but sadly it doesn’t. Typing “body mass index” is the next best thing to that, though.

wolfram alpha

Enter your information; get an answer. You’ll even get a chart showing you how healthy that body mass is, as well as a comparison to the national average. Click here if you’re too lazy to do the search yourself.

Food!

Everyone I know eats, so this is probably relevant to anyone’s interest. Type any food into Wolfram Alpha, such as taco, to pull up its nutrition information. This in and of itself is useful, but it can also work for comparisons. For example, you could compare a Coke with a beer:

wolfram alpha search engine

The beer has more calories, but the Coke has more sugar. Choose wisely! Try this out on many different foods and you just might make informed choices. Maybe.

Conclusion

These are by no means the only awesome/stupid uses for the Wolfram Alpha search engine. You could ask it for the meaning of life or whether you’re happy, for example.

Have any other fun uses? Share them below! Also check out Simon’s introduction to Wolfram last year and Saikat’s 10 other Wolfram Alpha search suggestions.

Anti-Happy Meal Crusader Monet Parham Is Government Bureaucrat

Anti-Happy Meal Crusader Monet Parham Is Government Bureaucrat: "

Here's a remarkable coincidence the establishment media appears not to have noticed:



While countless media outlets continue to herald a 'mother of two children' who jointly filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald's intended to force a nationwide ban on Happy Meal toys, one big fact is ominously missing from most, if not all, news stories: Monet Parham is also an overzealous food cop employed by the California Department of Public Health.


Overlawyered.com's Walter Olsen writes in the NY Daily News that Parham is anything but a 'random (if oddly well-informed) California mom,' as reporters interviewing her insist. He and fellow blogger Ira Stoll reveal that Parham 'works on a federally funded program that campaigns to exhort people to eat their vegetables and that sort of thing.'


Stoll notes that in [the] wake of her participation in the Center for Science in the Public Interest's lawsuit against McDonald's, Parham's name 'has been scrubbed from the website of Champions for Change, the Network for a Healthy California.' Despite attempts to preserve her identity as just 'some ordinary mom,' Parham's participation in so-called 'health eating' conferences is still in plain sight (be quick before that disappears, too).


'She presents herself as an ordinary mother. She is not,' Olsen says. 'She is an advocate, and an employee of a California agency tasked with advocating the eating of vegetables. To the extent that Monet Parham-Lee has EVER taken her daughter to a McDonald's, she should have known better.'


Nonetheless, the establishment media has repeatedly described Parham-Lee simply as a mother, not as a nanny state bureaunazi whose job is to spend our money telling us what we can eat. If you would like to congratulate Ms. Parham-Lee on her cleverness at duping the willful idiots who run the media into believing (or pretending) she's a normal person, or thank her for saving children from the capitalist menace of free toys in Happy Meals, she can be reached at the California Department of Public Health: monet.parham-lee@cdph.ca.gov.

A White House Phone Call

"Good morning, this is President Barack Obama calling. Is Senator Lieberman in?"
"No, Mr. President. This is Yom Kippur."
"Well, hello Yom. May I leave a message for him?"

Here's something new (new to me)

I stopped drinking coffee for a long time ... just because I felt like I was becoming a slave to the "ritual."  Every day it's ...get the coffee-maker ready for the next day ... make the coffee ... drink the coffee ... dump the grounds ... clean the machine ... get the coffee ready again ... jeesh ... might as well dance a jig too.

I always drank my coffee black due to an "incident" I encountered during army basic training wherein a drill sergeant calmly explained that the army couldn't be bothered to ensure I had my "pansy-assed cream and sugar with a f**cking war going on." (Note: calmly explained=yelling at me with his face about one inch away from mine ... with his drill sergeant hat bouncing off my forehead.)

Anyway, I recently started drinking coffee again because I found out it suppresses my appetite in the morning and I'm trying to limit calories for the time being soooo ... whatever works.  Suffice it to say, the coffee machine is back to mocking me in the morning as, once again, I submit to its daily demands.

Since the holiday season is upon us a company called 'International Delight" is supplying some seasonal flavors ... limited and temporary is the deal.  I tried two of them in the past couple of days and I liked them.  I'm sure I'll tire of them soon enough but in the meantime I'm enjoying a little change of pace.  In the old days I'd buy a bottle or two of Bailey's Irish Creme to drink during the holidays but I stopped that when I found out the calorie content.




Here's some more of their flavors.  It's interesting they don't show the Almond Joy flavor ... I had to take the pic with my own camera. But I mean ... ALMOND JOY? As my old friend Bill Nelson used to say ... "GET ... the hell out of here."

WHERE ARE ALL THE PARENTS????

I had to post this because how on earth can something like this happen if ANY of the parents of these children were watching and/or thinking, none of those children would have even been in the water. Of course, thanks to the Lib Nation, this isn't a topic of interest. They'll be so busy suing the radio station and created laws to "prevent this kind of tragedy from ever happening again" that nobody will every place the responsibility where it belongs- WITH THE PARENTS.

We are gleefully dumbing down America and those of us who know better shouldn't sit idly by and watch it happen.

Incompetent boobs coming to regulate the internet


The FCC has announced it's coming to the rescue of the American people.

Here's some excerpts from this article:

Analysts and broadband companies of all sizes have told the FCC that new rules are likely to have the perverse effect of inhibiting capital investment, deterring innovation, raising operating costs, and ultimately increasing consumer prices. Others maintain that the new rules will kill jobs.  Gee, you mean just like it does EVERY SINGLE TIME THE GOVERNMENT GETS ITS GREASY BLOATED FINGERS INTO THE PIE OF AMERICAN FREEDOM?  What a shocker.

Over time, however, the call for more Internet regulation became imbedded into a 2008 presidential campaign promise by then-Sen. Barack Obama. So here we are ... 

The announcement produced what has become a rare event in Washington: A large, bipartisan majority of Congress agreeing on something. More than 300 members of Congress, including 86 Democrats, contacted the FCC to implore it to stop pursuing Internet regulation and to defer to Capitol Hill.

LMAO -  Who does congress think they are?  They don't tell the FCC what to do ... or the EPA, etc etc.  These bureaucracies are institutionalized now ... they don't need congressional approval to act.  Congress can go pound sand up its sizable ass.

Whew, I just don't know what we'd do without the bureaucrats/geniuses helping us out  I love how they steal our freedom bit by bit, don't you?  Don't you feel much safer with these brainiacs in charge?

Poor Julian Assange.

"Why won't people respect my privacy?"
 The next sound you hear will be the world’s tiniest violin playing for Julian Assange. The WikiLeaks founder’s Swedish lawyer has announced that he will lodge a formal complaint because—wait for it—it’s not fair that police documents surrounding Assange’s case were leaked to the media. “It puts Julian and his defense in a bad position,” he told a colleague, according to the Australian.
 
“I do not like the idea that Julian may be forced into a trial in the media,” he continues. “I do not know who has given these documents to the media, but the purpose can only be one thing — trying to make Julian look bad.” Other supporters complained that the Guardian, which has published many of Assange’s WikiLeaks reveals, should treat its top source better. But a spokesman for the paper said that was an argument that “all journalists would find ridiculous.”

Ha ha ha, HYS-terical

So some dipsticks wrote some childrens' books  entitled "Why mommy/daddy is a Democrat."  They seem to have left out the "Because mommy/daddy is a brain-dead vegetable" part.

Oh look, there are flowers and a butterfly by daddy ... just like there are in Equallia/Utopia. (Note: "Equallia" is a Simpsons reference.)

Yes kids, we ALL need to "play by the rules."  Not only that but WE need to set the rules by which everyone "plays."  That's right kids, we can't just leave people alone to be free and do as they wish (as long as they aren't hurting others) ... we need to get in there and tell them what to do with their lives and how to live ... and how much they should pay to support us while we make up more rules.   

Yes, children, that's right ... and we don't just do it for a few years out of your life either, we do it for your ENTIRE life.  You'll get to the end and see how we've stolen your life but remember, we only did it for your own good.

Think of others and yourselves as slaves for life ... this goes for your own children too ... remember kids, everyone needs to play by OUR rules because we're better and smarter than other people.


Yes, sometimes "The Earth" feels sick.  We can't prove it but we say we can.  We do a lot of talking and "proving" by stealing money from other people and then giving it to our friends to  conduct "scientific studies."  Even though our friends are totally neutral, somehow, their "studies" always agree with us ... isn't that funny kids?  The reason for that is we're all geniuses and we knew the outcome before the "study" was done anyway.  That's right kids, we geniuses are NEVER, EVER wrong.  To tell the truth, the only reason we go through with the charade of "studies" is so we can point to them as "scientific proof."

And how do we get the word out?  Easy-peasey ... all you have to do is look at the news broadcast of your choice.  Isn't it sweet of the media to help us out.  Remember kids, always believe what the media tells you.  The media really cares about you.

So fuckin' special.

People’s champion Bernie Sanders fights for your right to work harder for less money

Bernie Sanders is a socialist from Vermont. What is so special about that, you might ask? Nothing. But, unlike all but one other person from Vermont, Bernie is also a United States Senator. This makes his whole existence as an authoritarian all the more troubling to you, us and everybody else in the country.

Bernie, you see, has the power to steal from some citizens, give those ill-gotten gains to other citizens and then collect votes for being the middleman. And that’s exactly what Sanders has been up to this week.

Sanders is good at what he does. He’s been at it a long time and has mastered the one thing necessary to sustain this sort of scam – the art of double speak.

For that reason Sanders uses terminology like “fairness” and “for the children” while he seeks to saddle those children with trillions more in debt. At the same time, he seeks to punish those whom have the audacity to create jobs that diminish dependence on government.

Make no mistake, Bernie Sanders has no love for working families. As a socialist there is no greater obstacle to his goals than a strong middle class. Unless maybe it’s a strong upper class.

Here’s Bernie asking the rich “when is enough enough?” Mayhaps he should ask the same question of public sector unions instead.

By the way, this video is from CSPAN-2. CSPAN is awesome. It is like ESPN for smart people.

"Earmarks" in the Omnibus Spending Bill

Interesting - the top two "earmarkers" are Republicans from the same state. This does not show the amounts requested (I think these 2 hooligans are about $6 million), and Mitch McConnell, while low on the number of earmarks, ranks high on the amount of our cash. Help please in finding the dollar amounts.

We all know what's going to happen.

I just posted it because he hit so nice and hard.

Our intellectual betters flail again.

"Our Moral Schizophrenia
Making arbitrary distinctions between morally equivalent sentient beings."

Really? Arbitrary distinctions? Morally equivalent sentient beings?

This is a clear demonstration of our intellectual betters "helping" us to see things clearly. See, if you don't see things their way, they give you the once over and wonder why you didn't already know this. Unfortunately, a desire to belong can outweigh common sense for too many people and they start thinking statements like this make sense. Of course, if you overtly disagree, you're called a sadist.

The truth though is that anyone who is alert would easily distinguish between the two groups. The first group represents animals which are intelligent, friendly and taste horrible. The second group represents animals which are dumb, self-serving, unfriendly, and not only delicious, but also produce products (eggs, milk, and cheese to name a few) which are delicious. This is perhaps more difficult to understand if you've never been exposed to these first hand. Nevertheless, it's true.

This type of feel-good, everyone deserves a chance type of thinking is mental pollution and only makes it more difficult to not only think clearly, but also to be prosperous. Whether they'll acknowledge it or not, this whole mentality of moving humanity towards Eden (as if Libs believe in the bible at all) will not work... ever. Until they drop the charade, they'll be nothing more than an anchor around the neck of progress and prosperity.

Nerds, to piss off.

I'm liking South Carolina's new governor more and more


Haley's exchange with Obama on the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump was less complicated.

"The taxpayers of South Carolina have paid $1.2 billion to [develop a plan] to send our nuclear waste to Yucca Mountain," she said.

"I asked him if he would consider honoring the federal commitment and allow waste to go to Yucca Mountain. His answer was no.

"He went on to the fact that they feel like they had safety concerns. He was pretty adamant that was not an option that was on the table."

Haley then made a direct demand.

"Then give us our money back," she told Obama.

"He said that he would have [Energy] Secretary Chu call me." More here:

"Give us our money back" -- LMAO!! Sure they will.  Thieves always return your money once they're caught.

"Stimulus" - very stimulating



WHO: The National Science Foundation

WHAT: Gave a $141,002 federal stimulus grant to Montana State University to fund a six-week, student trip to Hangzhou, China, to study dinosaur eggs and other fossils.

WHY IT'S AN OUTRAGE: The students found ample time to experience Chinese culture and explore on taxpayers' money, but the dinosaur eggs did not hatch any new jobs. From here:
Yes, it's quite a mystery why the "stimulus" didn't work.   Why, if I didn't know any better I'd say every time congress yells "STIMULUS," they really mean "FREE MONEY I CAN  GIVE TO MY BUDDIES AND MY CONSTITUENTS WILL THINK I'M DOING IT FOR THEIR OWN GOOD."

Ha ha, shut up you idiots.  It's not your money, it's the government's money.  Besides, it's just a "drop in the bucket."  Have you ever noticed that, according to intellectual geniuses libs, anything/everything government does is just a "drop in the bucket."  In other words, you need to realize you cannot do anything to stop the government from spending money ... the task is just too large.  That's right, you'd have to work from now 'till doomsday to stop even a millionth of all the "drops."  Therefore you should just give up.  You got that, you moron?  Why, you're an idiot for even THINKING you could make a difference. 

Now that I've brought you to your senses, let me also remind you that all spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives.  Did you get that?  I said ALL SPENDING BILLS MUST ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE.  Lucky for you the intellectual geniuses Democratics have been in charge of the congress for most of the last century.  The spreadsheet below is a visual representation of the last sixty years or so and which party has been in control of congress.  Here's how it looks.  The blue is control by actual intellectual geniuses Democratics and the red is control by idiot Republicans who only THINK they're intellectual geniuses Democratics.


Remember, when a party controls congress and they "implement" a program, they try to institutionalize the program.  That is to say, they get to give all their buddies jobs in the new program and they give those jobs to people who share their same political viewpoints.  Every new program gives congress more power to hand out cushy, well paying, government jobs.  This is one of the main things congress does and one of the main reasons people seek congressional office.

Institutionalizing also means most of these programs continue to grow every year without any further voting from congress (so they don't have to be accountable to voters.)  That's right, they automatically get more and more and more money every year ... you know ... just like you do in your paycheck.  That's "normal" so stop  bitching.  You think Social Security and Medicare are growing now?  You've seen nothing.  Wait until you get a load of health care.

Oh well, at least we're getting a good return from the NEA/Teachers unions.  Just LOOK at the geniuses our schools are putting out ... makes me so proud.  And yet I notice that they're shocked every time one of these little Einsteins shows up with a shotgun and commences to  letting them reap what they've sown giving them what they deserve.  Ah, it's probably wrong to put all the blame on the teachers/schools ... we should put the blame where it really belongs ... on the tort system.  Teachers aren't allowed to discipline kids anymore, they'll be sued.  

They=the teacher, the school, the government, and anyone else a lawyer can possibly think of in order to maximize his profits.  Come to think of it, "BIG LAW" seems to be the only profit making entity the libs won't call "evil."  Wait, I can think of another one off the top of my head, "BIG RED GREEN."

While I'm thinking about "BIG LAW" my guess is that 99% of the stupid policies in your company  are in place to prevent being sued, am I right?  Have you ever heard "we do that because someone filed a lawsuit one time and it cost ... blah blah blah."

Anyway, the Republicans just won control of the house starting in January 2011.  Do you think they will make any changes?

Here are my thoughts.  What is the best predictor of future behavior? (Answer: past behavior.)  What is the recent history of Republicans?  (Answer: They spend like drunken Democratics.)

Therefore I will be surprised if they make any meaningful changes.  I think most of government has been institutionalized and I don't see the Republicans changing their current leadership therefore I don't see how these new freshmen in the house can make a bit of difference.

Now, if they get in there and start firing the current leadership asshats and replace them with some of the Tea Party freshmen, then yes, we'll get some change, but until then, no, we'll get more of the same.

My guess is the current leadership can't WAIT to get in there and start handing out jobs and contracts to all their favorite buddies.   Oh, also, let's not forget, WE GOTTA GO AFTER THOSE ABORTION PEEPS!!  NEVER MIND TORT REFORM ... GO GETCHER PITCHFORKS, WE GOTTA ENFORCE GOD'S WILL ... HE'S TOO BUSY TO DO IT HIMSELF ... THIS IS CRUCIAL GOVERNMENT BUSINESS!!!

Matt Damon. Lib.

For the record, I'm a fan of Matt Damon's work. I'm not, however, a fan of this message. Clearly, he's been spending too much time with Hollywood-types who have convinced him that he has a greater calling than merely filling movie theaters and selling DVD's. I'm not sure what it is about actors that they're so easily convinced that the gap between emoting and being a statesman is minor enough that any among them can make the leap. Considering that Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins were widely considered to be "the smart ones", we really shouldn't expect too much from the group as a whole, right?

I mean, for the most part, it's true- nobody wants gifts they don't want. I frankly believe there's too much gift giving to adults who neither want, nor need most of the junk they get at holiday time. Furthermore, "gag gifts" are only funny to the giftor. I personally treat gag gifts the same way I do junk mail- I drop it in the garbage pail without it ever making its way into the house. I'm 40 something and at this point, I figure people should know better than to give me anything that gave them a chuckle and if they don't, I'm not going to waste precious storage space to hold their junk. "Sorry".

Anyway, awful gifts aside, they're merely a front for his "message" about water.org.



"We at water.org came up with what we think is a great idea... my brother and his artist colleagues designed this water bottle... 100% of the profits from this water bottle will go to water.org to help bring clean water to people all over planet earth"

Let's take a closer look at his statements.

1. "We at water.org"- We're a group, a team, something to which to belong... a herd. This is incredibly attractive to Libs who really just want to belong... to something... anything.

2. We came up with a great idea- Okay... a metal water bottle... great idea but really? YOU came up with this? No. It's an old idea. Granted there are way too many plastic bottles filling land fills and reusable water bottles are a great way to mitigate that problem but don't go taking credit where it isn't due. I mean, Libs will buy it hook line and sinker but to the rest of us- the thinkers- it looks ridiculous to take credit for old technology. What's next? Telling everyone at your high school reunion that you invented Post-it Notes?

3. "My brother and his artist colleagues"- No doubt- Libs love nepotism- that fact is well established but "artist colleagues"? Libs would paint a picture of artists as people lounging in the parlor of a relative's mansion wearing artist smocks and berets while smoking dubious cigarettes held in any fashion which excludes the index finger but that's not how real artists are... that's how poseurs are. Real artists don't design water bottles and they don't consider themselves colleagues. Professors, PhD's, dilettantes and drama queens consider themselves colleagues. Artists are too busy fighting their own demons to waste their time with that kind of crap.

4. "100% of the profits from this water bottle will go to water.org"- In other words, 100% of the profits from this product we've created and are selling will go to- wait for it- ... US! I mean, that's so super-clever. They're telling you what every capitalist already knows- the profits go to the profit-maker. But they figure that since they're saying it explicitly, you'll think "there must be something more to it". They're right- if you're a Lib. The rest of us just hear what they say and realize that they're making profits and keep them and you're left thinking they're doing something righteous. They're not. They're making money and smiling. It's capitalism under an overwrought veil of humanitarianism.

5. "to help bring clean water to people all over planet earth"- Aw- that's so sweet. They're not selling clean water- they're bringing it. Of course, someone is going to pay for it and somehow, I doubt it's going to be water.org footing the bill. "Planet earth"- that is so sweet... it's so much more humany than saying "the world". They never miss an opportunity to remind you that it's our planet and it's our responsibility to protect her.

Yeesh.

Mark Levin's book gets omitted.

Barbara Walters interviewed Sarah Palin. One of the questions asked which books she's read or is reading. Part of Mrs. Palin's response was Mark Levin's book, "Liberty and Tyranny" but any mention of that book was omitted from her response.

You can call the omission what you want but the history between Mrs. Walters and Mr. Levin make it seem like it was something personal. Hopefully, we'll see a case of the Streisand Effect and Mr. Levin's book receives the attention it deserves.

13 Reasons to throw away your Che Guevara T-Shirt.

Che Guevara, vicious mass murderer and T-shirt icon

I never went ahead and bought one myself, but mostly because of the disdain I felt for the people I saw wearing them. These people were "Libs" "hipsters" before the term was invented. One of them shaved half his beard and everyone called him "clever" and "brilliant". That should give you a pretty good idea of the collective intelligence of these people.

Anyway, I read this on IHTM and thought it worth reblogging.

According to the leftist mythology that’s been built up over the last 50 years Che Guevara was a brave, noble soldier who loved freedom and sacrificed his life so that others could achieve it.che posterHa! Here are thirteen Che facts that the left never mentions. Thirteen things that, if they were widely known, would contribute to far fewer T-shirt sales.
  1. Che’s famous motorcycle tour of South American is mostly myth. The motorcycle broke down early in the trek and it was completed with other means of transportation.
  2. Che was nicknamed Chancho (Pig) by his schoolmates because he rarely bathed.
  3. Soon after Batista was overthrown, Guevara had hundreds of Cuban government officials executed. Notice that the phrase “fair trial” was conspicuously absent from the previous sentence.
  4. Che was a brutal murderer. He trained and commanded firing squads that executed thousands of men, women and children deemed enemies by the new Castro regime. He once put a bullet in the head of a fellow guerrilla he suspected of disloyalty.

Cloward - Piven In All Of Its Glory

I've heard about this "theory" for years, but never read it. For your "disruptive" and "re-distributing" edification, here it is. Read it on an empty stomach.

Barney's new part time job


Tuesday Taste of the "Town"

After a short hiatus, it's back. This week, we had a pre-Poker Day lunch at....

THE BRIDGE GRILL
SUNSET BEACH, NC




FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
Yet another “beach house” looking-joint that is pretty far from the beach. You get used to it here. Walking in I felt like something was wrong, like I’d walked into someone’s house uninvited. The story from the staff was “Yeah – we said we open at 11AM, but we’re not really open or ready." No worries – we’re not in a hurry, and we are more than willing to wait till they get it together. Mostly picnic tables with red and white tablecloths – except for one weird area near the front with a big flat screen TV amidst some very well-worn mismatched garage sale couches.

SERVICE:
Again, kind of weird. I honestly don’t think that our waitress was an actual employee. She tried her best to help us, but really didn’t know where anything was or how to even write up an order ticket. Having said that, she was very nice, surprisingly helpful, and willing to let us laugh at her.

PIZZA:
We ordered a large with extra cheese, mushrooms, and pepperoni. Great call by the Evil Klown for ordering the extra cheese, otherwise it would have been invisible – now it was almost enough. I’ll call it a decent pie – but not really memorable. The price was fair. The crust needed to be crispier (since it was thin) but the mushrooms were fresh, which is important to this pizza lover. I probably will not be back - C-

WTF? EVENT:
Like mentioned previously, the whole vibe was just kind of “strange”. But then when they turned on the overly loud Ravi Shankar music, and all the staff (and their friends) wandered outside to get high, it began to make some sense.
