Amazing What Enforcing The Law Can Do

Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools in the wake of a court ruling that upheld the state's tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration.
Education officials say scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from classes or kept them home this week, afraid that sending the kids to school would draw attention from authorities.

This should increase the "teacher/student ratio" that everyone wants, for free!

More here.

Woe is us -- WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED THIS?



Stocks closed out the worst quarter in more than two years with a triple-digit dive in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. More here:

So, let me get this straight.  If you just keep on borrowing and printing money it will actually have an effect on our economy?

If you just keep on piling regulations and burdens on business it will actually have an effect on employment?

If you just keep on blocking drilling, transportation,and refining of oil, blocking coal and nuclear it will eventually cause our energy costs to go up?  And then American families will be FORCED to pay more and therefore have less for themselves?

By the way, it occurs to me ... if you tell the government they can't raise taxes then you better tell them they have to balance the budget ... cuz if you don't then they can just borrow to their heart's content, right?  And you just have to sit there and stfu.

But ... what is the difference in raising taxes and borrowing money willy nilly?  You're going to have to pay it back eventually, right?  So, you tell me -- how is government borrowing different from raising taxes?  ESPECIALLY when the government monetizes the debt ... i.e. prints the money out of thin air and then buys its own bonds.

I've got to tell you  folks, I think Obama and the Democratics are actually doing it on purpose.   Of course, they're helped by the idiot media and the dupe-niks.

Communist jackass hates and brays



From this article:

Van Jones, president of the progressive organization Rebuild the Dream, joins The Last Word to discuss what Washington should be doing about jobs. Jones calls the US' deficit problem "phony" and made up.

LOL - don't you love it when the "objective" jourrrrrnalist lets you know that this organization is "progressive?"  Yes, yes -- that way you can tell if it's "good" or not.  See how helpful the jourrrrrnalist is?

"Hold on to your hats, we're going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America's middle class," Jones told MSNBC's "The Last Word."

Jones warns of an "American Fall" like there was an Arab Spring.

Jones was President Obama's "green jobs czar" until he resigned in fall of 2009. Transcript below:
Van Jones: "We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

"People who benefited from the bailouts and from the tax breaks should start paying America back. They're doing great.

"Everybody else is suffering. That is 80 percent of the majority. And we're going to now have a voice.

"And you're going to see an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab spring. You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. Hold onto your hats. We're going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and to rescue America's middle class."
Hey ... Van Jones, pipe down you racist prick.  We've had enough of you big-goverment types "rescuing" us.  If you "rescue" us anymore we'll ALL be out of work.

I love it ... The TEA PARTY is kicking the crap out of you commies (politically speaking) and you can't STAND it.  2012 is going to make 2010 look like a maypole dance.  Keep dreaming about your "American Fall."  I love how you hate the TEA PARTY ... the TEA PARTY which is only interested in fiscal responsibility ... and yet, you hate them ... you hate them with all your being.  Well, you're going to hate them more, jackass, so start practicing.

And oh yes, I'm sure your "fall offensive" is gonna be HUGE ... the BIGGGGGGGGG "Take back of America."  We're all shaking in our boots at the thought of a bunch of perpetually unemployed dipstick libs finding temporary "jobs" as demonstrators against the TEA PARTY.  Isn't that how you geniuses usually do your "protests?"  You pay the "demonstrators?"  No wonder they sound like clueless idiots when they're interviewed.

Also, how astute of you to discover the deficit problem is "phony and made up."   Whew, we can all relax now and concentrate on how best to extract all you dumbass money-squandering commies from our government in 2012 ... all thanks to the genius that is "Van Jones."

And why is MSNBC bothering to interview your dumbass anyway?  I like how the jourrrrnalist mentions you were a green-jobs czar but quickly skips over your "resignation" and the reason for it.  Perhaps they forgot why Obama let you get thrown under the bus.  Yes, Mr Jones, it turns out Obama likes to keep his communism and racism a little more on the down-low.  That's what you get for being honest in this political climate.  If only you had kept quiet (like Obama) about your true agenda and past then everything would have been hunky dory.

Janeane Garofalo: "Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same. More (with video) here:

Yes, isn't it obvious?  If you disagree with Obama's policies and didn't vote for him, it's because you're a racist.  However, if you like Herman Cain and agree with his policies, then you're a racist.  See how it is?  The lefties, always with the pointing and hollering witch.

Actually, lefties, it's like this.  I want you to leave me alone.  Go blab amongst yourselves all you want.  Seriously, go sit in a room and tell each other how smart you are ... but leave me out of your genius plans, k?  it that too much to ask ... for you to just leave me a alone?  Turns out, it is.  For liberals pretend they can't do anything without your money.  They aren't greedy, you understand.  Nooooo.  However, if you don't want them to steal your money, then YOU'RE greedy ... see?  Do you appreciate their logic?  Yes, I knew you would.

Hey, Janeane ... shouldn't you be somewhere getting another tasteful tattoo?  I see you walking down the street and I'm thinking "hippie strength mace."

Just plain wrong.



The “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how we explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli …” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”

Mark Levin on the General Welfare clause



So this moron lib calls in to Mark Levin's radio show and asks the question (paraphrasing) "If you're always talking about 'The Rule of Law' then how come you don't support all laws?"  And when Mark starts to tell him some laws aren't constitutional, the guy comes back saying (paraphrasing again) "The General Welfare clause of the constitution allows the congress to pass any laws they want" (presumably for the general welfare of the United States citizens.)

I guess he thought he really had Mark by the balls and was going to humiliate him ... teach him a lesson.  Anyway, this video is about ten minutes long.  Go ahead and listen to a minute and then try to stop.  Seriously, go ahead, stop when you've heard enough.

Burn the witches! Erm, I mean, smokers


DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS)
Excerpts from here:

– Currently there are some 14 million jobless Americans. And if you’re one of the thousands of North Texans looking for work, the competition is tough.

Now, a new hiring limitation by one employer could make the job search even harder.

The Baylor Health Care System has decided that if you use tobacco, in any form, you won’t get a job with them.

Baylor officials claim smoking has a lot to do with the high cost of health care. The FDA estimates smoking costs American employers some $200 billion a year in lost productivity and increased medical costs.

“It’s about how we continue to deal with the rising health care costs,” said Baylor CEO Joel Allison. “It’s about how do we really focus on the new model of health care around prevention and well, and how do we keep people healthy. And I think that’s very, very important for us as a city, a state and a nation.”  Oh really, Joel?  I thought Obamacare was going to solve all our problems in this regard.  Oh, nevermind.  I don't care anyway.  I hate witches smokers just like you do.  GOD, I HATE THEM SOOOOO MUCH!!

Smoking was banned at all Baylor campuses four years ago. But, can they legally refuse to hire smokers?

“Absolutely they can,” said Dallas employment attorney Thomas Brandt. “People think well, that’s discriminatory, but really there are only certain factors that you cannot consider when making hiring decisions.”

Things like race, gender, ethnicity or national origin cannot be considered when hiring an employee.

If increased medical costs are a consideration for banning employee tobacco use, then ponder this: obesity is also a national health crisis. According to the CDC obesity costs employers some $147 billion a year.

Yes, yes, good point.  Let's go for the fatties next.   I hate disgusting fatties anyway, grrrrrr.  By the way,. "Joel," how old are you getting to be?  Don't old people impact our health care costs?  And by "impact" I mean "make exceedingly expensive."


I looked him up on Google.  Here's what the great genius looks like.  Ever notice anything about the great geniuses?  They're so benevolent, don't you think? Yes, always wanting to give you the benefit of their awesome brain power.  And if you don't want it?  Well, they'll just force it upon you ... for your own good, of course.




By the way, if you think "I" hate smokers, you should see this guy's blog.  That's where I found the pic of the girl at the top.  This guy make my hate look like a piker's hate ... a weak hate ... almost a tolerance.

In 1983 a driver hit a tree in Michigan. A tree surgeon repaired the damage, and the driver’s insurance paid the $550 bill, but the tree’s owner claimed $15,000 for pain and suffering; he said the “beautiful oak” was like someone dear to him.

A lower court threw out the case, and the appeals court agreed. The three-judge panel declared:

We thought that we would never see
A suit to compensate a tree,
A suit whose claim in tort is prest
Upon a mangled tree’s behest;
A tree whose battered trunk was prest
Against a Chevy’s crumpled crest;
A tree that faces each new day
With bark and limb in disarray;
A tree that may forever bear
A lasting need for tender care.
Flora lovers though we three,
We must uphold the court’s decree.
Affirmed.

Portrait of the "artist" as an old idiot

This dipshit (Alec Baldwin) went berzerk because Georgia killed a cop-murderer.  Oh, the justice ... the JUSTICE ... where is it?  Never mind justice, Alec is not interested in that.  He's interested in hating.  And while he's hating, he's yelling at "the haters."  You see, Wombat has recently pointed out that, in addition to being immune to the emotion of embarrassment/humiliation, idiot-libs are also incapable of sensing irony.

I know ... he doesn't mention "haters" above, but worry not, much more at Newbusters:

Speaking of irony ... howcum there were two disgusting jackass criminals put to death last night but this Einstein defends the cop killer?  What about the guy who dragged a man with a pickup truck and a chain?  Howcum no defense of him?  Cop killing racists ok but man-dragging racist not ok?  I tell ya, it's hell to only be of average intelligence and to be left wondering about the logic of this.

And finally, is it just me or does he look and sound a lot like Charlie Sheen?

Stop screwing up the fast food orders - K?

SEPTEMBER 21--Angered that his Taco Bell drive-thru order failed to include hot sauce, a Missouri man returned to the fast food restaurant and allegedly pulled a shotgun on an employee, who fled in fear from the takeout window.

Yes, pulled a shotgun ... that seems strange ... probably just a behavior anomaly, right?  Totally out of character.

The bizarre incident Saturday evening resulted in the arrest of Jeremy Combs, a 30-year-old convicted felon, on both state and federal charges. Combs is pictured in the below mug shot.

OHHHH, a CONVICTED felon!  NOW, I understand.  Of course, past behavior is no indicator of future behavior, right?  Remember, we have to keep our wits about us lest we unduly jump to conclusions.  What's that you say?  "past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior?"  Oh.


According to a U.S. District Court complaint, investigators with the Lee’s Summit Police Department interviewed Combs Sunday afternoon about the incident. Combs admitted that he had purchased several items from Taco Bell, only to return home to discover “the Taco Bell employee had failed to include his…hot sauce.”  Well, folks, let me tell youuuuuu ... this burned his chapps something fierce. After all why should he have to take ten seconds to check the bag himself?

While Combs told cops that he “became upset and drove back to the Taco Bell to confront the employee,” he denied brandishing a shotgun at the drive-thru worker. What me brandish a shotgun?  Brandish ... erm, I mean "banish" the thought. That employee must be seeing things.  He said the item was actually a tire iron, a claim police say is belied by Taco Bell surveillance footage showing Combs in his Ford F-150 truck.  Heh, I like the word "belied."  I also like the word "slake."  No, slake is not in this article but I thought I'd mention it.

During a subsequent search of Combs’s residence, police discovered a Mossberg shotgun with live rounds of ammunition affixed to its side (the weapon was hidden under the mattress in Combs’s bedroom). What?  Who would EVER thought to look under the mattress for a gun? Sounds like the cops really got lucky there, huh? He's probably the first evil genius felon who ever thought of hiding a gun under his mattress.  In a conversation Monday with a Lee’s Summit detective, Combs reportedly copped to possessing the shotgun at Taco Bell, adding that he bought the weapon--which did not have a serial number--“from ‘Mark’ at a drug house in Independence, Missouri.”  My, my. No serial number?  Don't know the guy's name?  What a series of coinkydinks.  Very believable though ... just rotten luck is all.

The incarcerated Combs is scheduled for a detention hearing tomorrow in federal court in Kansas City. According to the criminal complaint, Combs’s rap sheet includes 14 felony arrests and three felony convictions. (3 pages) From The Smoking Gun::

Well, I have a question.  What the hell is this guy doing out of jail?  Hey, never mind the other ELEVEN times he was arrested for felonies ... those don't count.  Only the convictions count ... stop jumping to conclusions.

See, the problem is these jackasses hurt/maim/kill our loved ones.  They never kill the geniuses who insist on letting them out of jail over and over and over.  And yet, these people who enable the criminals are not held to account for their actions/decisions.  I think that needs to change ... along with the overhaul of our "justice system" in general.

Oh, and BTW, F you, America.


As you may have heard, Josh and Shane were released from Iran after having somehow and mysteriously crossed the border while hiking in nearby Iraq. I don't understand the draw of choosing Iraq as a vacation destination but there is much I don't understand. I suspect that they considered themselves "adventurers" and were dying to get back and impress their friends at cocktail parties by saying "oh, you haven't been? You simply MUST go..." as if Iraq? Dangerous? Nah... not if you know what you're doingaaaaaaa. You know Libs- they're always so above it all. Floating in the ether looking down on their intellectual lessers.

Well, they deplaned and gave a short speech on the tarmac. Shane Bauer said, "Two years in prison is too long and we sincerely hope for the freedom of other political prisoners and other unjustly imprisoned people in American and Iran." America? Libs... they never ever pass up an opportunity to bash America. America can do no right and every barbaric, hostile, extremist, fundamentalist entity outside the U.S. can do no wrong for these people. I don't know about you, but I find it to be... tiresome.

Oops. Not THIS kind of qaboos.

Also. Anybody notice the headline? "Hikers Leave Iran for Good"? What about the $1mm bail posted by Sultan Qaboos of Oman for their release? Was that just an "expression"? See for the likes of you and me, "bail" means you get released and promise to come back or you don't get your money back and they put out a warrant on you. For Libs, I guess, it means a fee that you pay to do as you please. Reminds me of some authors who take an advance to write a book but then don't actually write the book and then threaten to sue the publisher for publishing it anyway. I don't expect any further discussion of that in the mainstream media though.
Sources WNBC TV and Newser.

Irony is another concept lost on Liberals.

"Julian Asange Slams 'Unauthorized Autobiography'" is the headline. The article never meeps "irony" though.

(NEWSER) – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is clashing with a British publisher over a memoir being released without his consent. The "unauthorized autobiography," which will go on sale in the UK today, is being published because Assange used a $500,000 advance to pay his legal bills, then withdrew from the project because of fears US authorities might use the information in the memoir against him, Canongate says. Assange, however, accuses the publisher of "profiteering from an unfinished and erroneous draft" that he worked on with a ghostwriter earlier this year.
The events surrounding the memoir's publication "are not about freedom of information. They are about old-fashioned opportunism and duplicity—screwing people over to make a buck," Assange tells AP. "This draft was a work in progress. It is entirely uncorrected or fact-checked by me." Canongate's publishing director says Assange ought to be pleased with the memoir. "What comes through here is this very human portrait of Julian, warts and all," he says. "He's a warmer character than a lot of people will be expecting."
He made an agreement (to write a book), got paid, backed out of the deal (and kept the money though) and then accused the publisher of "profiteering" and then asserts from his high and mighty (above it all) pedestal that this was all "not about freedom of information [as are his lofty aspirations]. They are about old-fashioned opportunism and duplicity- screwing people over to make a buck"

See- if he could sense irony, he would have piped the fuck down.

Look what that stupid President Bush did this time

U.S. President Barack Obama waves while standing with other leaders during the Open Government Partnership event at the United Nations September 20 in New York City. The United Nations General Assembly kicks off September 21, with leaders from around the world attending.  From here:

Diplomatic protocol?  What's that?  Heck, I'm just a big dumb cowboy from Texas.  Seriously, can't you just hear the media telling you how Bush is stupid and backwoods and uncouth is for doing this?  But with Obama -- the crickets chirp as usual.

What nobody's saying about Che Guevara

An essay by Dr. Douglas Young, Professor of Political Science & History at Gainesville State College
February 10, 2009

Hollywood has dutifully churned out yet another cinematic agitprop paean to a leftist “martyr,” this time Ernesto Guevara. So let’s recall the real “Che” and try to discern why many supposedly democratic, civil libertarian liberals still swoon over this Stalinist mass-murderer.

The meticulous myth of Senor Guevara is of a handsome Argentine heroically helping Fidel Castro’s guerrillas liberate Cuba from Fulgencio Batista’s military dictatorship in 1959. Then he became a global revolutionary icon inspiring the downtrodden to rise up everywhere, even personally leading rebel warriors in the Congo before being executed doing the same in Bolivia in 1967. The (communist) party line says Che personifies the selfless humanitarian courageously fighting for “social justice.” He’s the Marxists’ martyred Christ figure replete with pictures of his half-naked corpse riddled with bullet holes. And the classic poster of an angry young Guevara has scarred countless college dorm rooms for over 40 years, putting a face on the eternally young rebel for angry adolescents everywhere.

The real Guevara was a reckless bourgeois adrenaline-junkie seeking a place in history as a liberator of the oppressed. But this fanatic’s vehicle of “liberation” was Stalinism, named for Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, murderer of well over 20 million of his own people. As one of Castro’s top lieutenants, Che helped steer Cuba’s revolutionary regime in a radically repressive direction. Soon after overthrowing Batista, Guevara choreographed the executions of hundreds of Batista officials without any fair trials. He thought nothing of summarily executing even fellow guerrillas suspected of disloyalty and shot one himself with no due process.

Che was a purist political fanatic who saw everything in stark black and white. Therefore he vociferously opposed freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, protest, or any other rights not completely consistent with his North Korean-style communism. How many rock music-loving teens sporting Guevara t-shirts today know their hero supported Cuba’s 1960s’ repression of the genre? How many homosexual fans know he had gays jailed?

Did the Obama volunteers in that Texas campaign headquarters with Che’s poster on the wall know that Guevara fervently opposed any free elections? How “progressive” is that?

How socially just was it that Che was enraged when the Russians blinked during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis and withdrew their nuclear missiles from the island, thus averting a nuclear war? Guevara was such a zealous ideologue that he relished the specter of millions of Cuban lives sacrificed on the altar of communism, declaring Cuba “a people ready to sacrifice itself to nuclear arms, that its ashes might serve as a basis for new societies.” Some humanitarian.

Che was a narcissist who boasted that “I have no house, wife, children, parents, or brothers; my friends are friends as long as they think like me, politically.” This is a role model for today’s “post-political” voters claiming we should get beyond partisanship?

Adding to the ridiculousness of the Che cult is that he was virtually a complete failure. As a medical doctor, he never even had a practice. When put in charge of the Cuban economy at the start of Castro’s government, his uncompromising communist diktats ran it completely into the ground, from which it never recovered. Humiliated, and also angry that Castro wasn’t fomenting enough revolution abroad, he then tried to lead such quixotic adventures in Argentina, the Congo, and Bolivia, failing miserably everywhere while sacrificing the lives of scores of na├»ve, idealistic young followers as deluded pawns in the service of his personality cult.

Another reason he fled Cuba in the mid-1960s was the complete mess he made of his private life. Though he preached sexual purity to his colleagues, he was a shameless adulterer who abandoned two wives and many children, some legitimate, others not. As a grandson put it, “he was never home.” The public Che who supposedly had such great love for humanity privately couldn’t stand most folks.

Guevara’s promiscuous communist adventurism was the pattern of a terminal adolescent running away from his problems to get caught up in some heroic crusade against his eternal bete noir, “Yankee imperialism.”

So why do so many well-heeled American libs still admire this thug? Are the young simply ignorant of his execrable record and drawn to the image of the dashing young rebel? Do older progressives feel guilt for their free market prosperity, and showing solidarity with Che absolves them? Do hippies-turned-yuppies get nostalgic for their youthful protests and rationalize that the symbolism of Che as a “social reformer” eclipses his actual horrific human rights record? And are some American Guevaraistas truly dangerous leftists who seek to emulate their icon and destroy our free, democratic, capitalist society? Ask that guy wearing the Che t-shirt.


More about the truth about Che HERE. I know what you're thinking- the people who need to learn this most are the ones least likely to read it. Such is the cross we Cogs have to bear in the name of maintaining truth and sanity in the world.
The existence of a popular and spontaneous anti-tax movement has unsettled the Establishment. They’d much rather deal with a stupid and authoritarian Right than with a libertarian one. Hence the almost desperate insistence that the Tea Partiers have some secret agenda.

Heh, these guys are getting a little better

WTF













New slogan "WTF" yea that should work

Hey, guess what ELSE is a "pollutant?"


That's right ... first the stuff you exhale when you breathe is called a "pollutant" ... cuz if they want to control it they have to call it a pollutant ... and now hay is a "pollutant."  And the thing is, it's not just the EPA up there screwing up the economy and people's lives, it's every damn alphabet soup agency in the government ... all vying for more money, more power, and more control.

The totalitarian fist of the EPA is tightening not only around industry and energy production. Our green rulers have learned from Stalin that the real key to power is choking off food. That’s why the malignant agency has declared hay a pollutant:
A recent report from R-CALF USA, an advocacy group for American cattle producers, says the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared harmless cattle hay a “pollutant,” which is part of the agency’s agenda to squelch family-scale cattle ranches in favor of corporately-owned, mega-sized feedlot operations.


At the recent 12th Annual R-CALF USA Convention in Rapid City, SD, an audience member asked Mike Callicrate, a Kansas cattle feeder, if the EPA had, indeed, declared hay a pollutant. His affirmative answer was startling to many, but not necessarily surprising in light of the US government’s apparent agenda to destroy every single producing sector in the nation and to reduce the country to a poverty-stricken, corporately-dominated wasteland.
Quothe Dave Blount at Moonbattery: We’ll know that the US government is back under the control of Americans when the EPA has been abolished.

Yes, I agree, Dave ... well said. And yet if any of the candidates dare speak of this, the media would "investigate" them and rip them to shreds just from accusations ... never mind the facts.

Racist outs self -- state media yawns


Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president." More here:

I always knew the "Congressional Black Caucus" was nothing but a bunch of asshat racists. I sure hope the media doesn't find out about this and start pointing and hollering racist witch every two minutes on your TV screen ... you know ... as if someone from the Congressional White Caucus had said "If Bush weren't white we'd be marching on the white house."

Ha ha, these people are so comfortable bitching about whitey they don't even think about watching their words anymore. Why should they? The media never holds them to account. Got it? They're never wrong ... never ... cuz they're "Democratics" ... and black.

The Day of Flailing Idiot-Libs

Ok, so you may have heard about the recent "Day of Rage" scheduled by idiot libs.  Against what were they raging?  Honestly, does it even matter? Oh yes, yes, they had this big protest all planned out for cities all across this great land ... you know ... to bitch about the rich and capitalism ... the usual gig of people without jobs professional protestors.

So I was reading all about it looking at all the pics and captions at Pajamas Media when I came across this pic.  Soooo .... classic lib.


Seriously?  Really?  Is this guy being funny?  Or ... could you shove him in a bottle and sell it at the perfume counter as "Essence O' Lib?"  If I had to guess I'd call it a sad, sad story of a lifetime of idiocy.  Hey, jackass, that's a mighty fancy cane for someone who hates the profit motive, caspisce?  You ought to be ashamed ... not even industrious enough to carve a cane out of some redwood so you can be close to mother earth.  Also, why no pony tail? Oh crap, now I'm going to have to go back and look at the pics to see if any were taken with this knucklehead in the background so I can confirm/deny the existence of his pony tail - aka, lib credential ... you know ... unless I get distracted by a sandwich or something.

Meanwhile I'm guessing that somewhere there's an African guy who was all about celebrating his heritage by wearing a knit hat but he lost it ... and this guy found it. I call them "The man be keepin' homey down" hats.  Anyway, I'm guessing this guy feels entitled to wear it.

He also feels entitled to wear a piece of rope around his wrist for jewelery.  This also helps him be close to mother earth.  In addition to that, one never knows when one is going to need a piece of rope .... sooooo, handy, right? Don't you wish you'd thought of it?

Oh lord, I could go on and on with this guy but I don't want to have all the fun ... go ahead and have at him in the comments.

The Pajamas Media guy gives credit to Zombie for the San Francisco pics.  He also gives credit to other guys for he New York and Los Angeles pics.  I wanted to link to Zombie because:
1 - My guess is the Zombie took the above pic.
2 - The Zombie is awesome.

Magazine subscriptions


I had this conversation with a friend of mine this morning.

[8:51:45 AM] Evil Klown: so we subscribe to Food Network magazine
[8:51:52 AM] Evil Klown: for the last two years
[8:52:02 AM] Evil Klown: it was $15 per year -- 10 issues
[8:52:33 AM] Evil Klown: and the subscription goes from Jan - Dec
[8:52:45 AM] Evil Klown: so they just sent me a renewal notice
[8:53:00 AM] Evil Klown: for the low-low price of $25 this time
[8:53:20 AM] Friend: yeah
[8:53:24 AM] Friend: that sounds like good business
[8:53:38 AM] Friend: cuz we all know it's WAY easier to get new customers than it is to keep the ones you have
[8:53:45 AM] Friend: let's do this
[8:53:52 AM] Friend: new customers pay less than longstanding customers
[8:53:58 AM] Evil Klown: instead, I went to their site and found I could subscribe for one year for $18 -- two years for $28 -- three years for $36
[8:54:02 AM] Evil Klown: idiots
[8:54:18 AM] Friend: so gd stupid
[8:54:24 AM] Evil Klown: "gee, why won't anyone sign up for our 'continuous service' option?"
[8:54:26 AM] Friend: like delis that play it cheap with the creamcheese
[8:54:35 AM] Friend: like they're saving money and nobody'll notice anyway

I emailed that conversation (minus the line where I called them idiots) to their customer service department and also to their editors.

Yes, I know they'll pay no attention.  Yes, I know "all magazines do this" ... that must mean it's the best business model, right? I can just see it now ... all the Harvard boys are in charge and nobody wants to be the first to deviate from this "pattern of success." Hell, they might fail and be fired, or worse, their peers might make fun of them ... they'd be ousted from the cool crowd ... the risk is just too great for geniuses.

It cracks me up because ripping off the idiot customers this type of thing is done in business all the time.

Attackwatch.com

For those of you somehow unfamiliar with attackwatch.com, they're a website dedicated to outting anyone who dares to attack our President, Barack Hussein Obama. They're about as grandiose as Anonymous and will.not.tolerate anyone who attacks our President, Barack Hussein Obama. If you dare to say anything negative or critical about him, it's an act of treason and probably rooted in racism so FEAR US.

Here's a meme you may or may not have seen before laying out the scenario before your eyes.



Thanks yet again to our friends at IHTM.

Jon Stewart on Solyndra.

The ending is possibly the funniest part. But still... "still hanging on to 40% approval"... that's not a "good" thing. It's the worst approval rating in the history of approval ratings. Furthermore, just because a congressman knows something about the technology behind solar power and can use the industry jargon with comfort it does NOT mean he'd make a good president. Libs- stop focusing on how smart someone sounds and start focusing on how smart someone behaves... mmmmk?


Sorry for the ad- I couldn't find the clip without it. Anyway, brushing really IS good for you so...

Good news for snail eaters!! Yum, yum!!


CORAL GABLES (CBS4) – They’re back. Giant African land snails which once took a decade to eradicate from South Florida have returned.

Giant African land snails, considered to be one of the most damaging snails in the world, have been found in the Coral Gables area of Miami-Dade County, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

The Giant African snail is one of the largest land snails in the world growing up to 8 inches in length and 4.5 inches in diameter. When full grown, the shell consists of seven to nine whorls (spirals), with a long and greatly swollen body whorl. The brownish shell covers at least half the length of the snail. Each snail can live as long as nine years and contains both female and male reproductive organs. After a single mating session, each snail can produce 100 to 400 eggs. In a typical year, every mated adult lays about 1,200 eggs. More here.

AVAST!  Have at them, fine diners!!

What you said? Libs squandering the loot?

Cameron J. Potter pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Thomas Phillips to bilking the Department of Energy of more than $400,000 intended for legitimate use by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy to promote renewable energy sources, typically dubbed “green energy.”

Potter, 31, was employed as the chief financial officer for SACE when, in 2006, he concocted a scheme to siphon off money awarded the advocacy group by the DOE for his own personal gain, Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Dale told Phillips.

Oh woe is us -- who could have predicted this?


RECORD POVERTY!!
WAY TO GO, OBAMA AND "DEMOCRATICS"

WASHINGTON (AP) — The ranks of America's poor swelled to almost 1 in 6 people last year, reaching a new high as long-term unemployment left millions of Americans struggling and out of work.

Reflecting the lingering impact of the recession, the U.S. poverty rate from 2007-2010 has now risen faster than any three-year period since the early 1980s, when a crippling energy crisis amid government cutbacks contributed to inflation, spiraling interest rates and unemployment.

Measured by total numbers, the 46 million now living in poverty is the largest on record dating back to when the census began tracking poverty in 1959. More here:

Whaaaaaa ????  What's this?  Who could have seen this coming?

I've got news for you, you don't have to be Nostrodamus to have seen this one coming.

I've got some ideas for Obama to use to bring us out of this depression.

1 - Let's raise the minimum wage again. It won't affect how many people business hire and people will make more money -- see?  Magic!!

2 - Let's continue to block oil drilling and refining and transporting

3 - Let's have government-run enterprises like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac run the housing/loan industry by fiat. Yes ... we'll have them dictate terms to the free market.

4 - Let's "tax the rich" to pay for health care. No way will "the rich" pass along their increased costs to the poor ... no way in hell ... it just wouldn't be right.

5 - Let's try to tax and spend our way out of a recession. Just because it can never work doesn't mean we shouldn't try it again.  No way will it cause inflation. No way will we bankrupt the nation. No way will we ever have to pay it back. No way will it make the recession worse.

6 - Let's continue flailing around with the already incomprehensible tax code ... yes, yes ... let's keep those evil businesses guessing, it keeps them on their toes.  We need to let them know who's boss.  It's great when they can't predict one of their biggest costs more than a year out.  Oh, don't worry, they won't move their operations overseas when faced with great uncertainty.  It won't have any effect on their hiring decisions at all.

7 - Let's introduce a few thousand more regulations for them to follow.  We need to keep our hob-nail boots on the throats of businesses.

8 - Even though government is the most wasteful and inefficient spender of money let's tell them we only need another 400 billion to get the job done.  Never mind we couldn't do it with the first trillion or two ... NOW we mean business.

9 - What we need is to escalate the war on poverty.

Hey, Obama, I LOVED it when you said (in your jobs speech) you wanted to work "side by side with business" to get us out of this predicament.  You don't even see that THAT is your problem, jackass.  You've got empty homes and homeless people - way to go.  GOVERNMENT DOES NOT BELONG IN THE FREE MARKET ... not "behind" - not "side by side" -- NOWHERE -- DON'T YOU GET IT??  LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE!!!

Sex & medicine in the middle ages (back in the day.)

So I was reading the J-Walk blog this morning and I came upon the words "penitential belt." Apparently it's worn by religious peeps who want to somehow pay retribution for sinning -- or something.  I went Googling to find out what it was (a leather belt with metal studs on the inside that dug into the wearer’s skin.)

Anyway, while I was looking for info on the belt I ran into this (Sex In The Middle Ages: 10 Titillating Facts You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid to Ask) and learned where they think the word "dildo" comes from. I also learned what "A tergo" means.  Erm, it means "from behind."


There are some references to the use of dildos by women in the Middle Ages, in particular, this one in a Church “penitential,” a book that prescribes punishments for sins.

“Have you done what certain women are accustomed to do, that is to make some sort of device or implement in the shape of the male member of a size to match your sinful desire? If you have done this, you shall do penance for five years on legitimate holy days.”  "... what women are accustomed to ... " LMAO!

The word dildo was not actually used until the Renaissance period, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, but one fanciful explanation of its origin was a small elongated loaf of bread flavored with dill, thus “dilldough.”


One of the most popular fashion accessories of the Middle Ages was the codpiece – a flap or pouch that attached to the front of the crotch of men's trousers and accentuated it in such a way as to emphasize or exaggerate the genitals. They were stuffed with sawdust or cloth and held closed by string ties, buttons, or other methods. The crotch was often extremely large or gave the idea of an erect penis. The word, codpiece, comes from the Middle English word, cod, which means scrotum.

Another symbol of virility in fashion was a style of shoe called the poulaine. These were long, pointy-toed shoes, that were also meant to suggest the size of the wearer’s penis – the longer point, the more virile the man.

Codpieces and poulaines are frequently seen in the paintings of the Dutch artist, Pieter Breugel. There is a portrait of Henry VIII, one of the great “fashion horses” of the later Middle Ages, wearing both.

So I was done reading that page and saw a popup type alert that said "If you liked this then you might also like "10 Excruciating Medical Treatments from the Middle Ages." Turns out they were right, cuz, yes ... yes I was interested."

Blocked Bladders: Metallic catheters inserted into the bladder

Blockage of urine in the bladder, due to syphilis and other venereal diseases, was fairly common at a time when antibiotics were not available. The urinary catheter – a metal tube inserted through the urethra into the bladder – was first used in the mid-1300s. When a tube could not easily be passed into the bladder to relieve the obstruction, other procedures to enter the bladder were devised, some quite novel, though all probably as painful and dangerous as the condition itself.

Here is a description of the treatment of kidney stones: "If there is a stone in the bladder make sure of it as follows: have a strong person sit on a bench, his feet on a stool; the patient sits on his lap, legs bound to his neck with a bandage, or steadied on the shoulders of the assistants. The physician stands before the patient and inserts two fingers of his right hand into the anus, pressing with his left fist over the patient's pubes. With his fingers engaging the bladder from above, let him work over all of it. If he finds a hard, firm pellet it is a stone in the bladder... If you want to extract the stone, precede it with light diet and fasting for two days beforehand. On the third day, ... locate the stone, bring it to the neck of the bladder; there, at the entrance, with two fingers above the anus incise lengthwise with an instrument and extract the stone." (Photo by: McKinney Collection) 

Yes, that's right ... that's some strong medicine ... and you know damn well all of you hoppage reading this would have had this procedure cuz of the syphilis, sooooo ...

Top 3 myths of capitalism

Obama's approval ratings are so low now, Kenyans are accusing him of being born in the United States .

A tidbit of knowledge


So I was flailing around the net this morning and came across this.

San and Santa are used throughout California in place names. (San Francisco / Santa Barbara etc.).

This is quite simply the Spanish term for "Saint". San being Male, Santa for the female saint name.

California was pretty much laid out by missionaries from Spain. Each mission was settled about days ride on horseback from the previous one.

As the missionaries settled a region, they took the book of saints day's out and named each settlement after the saint who's celebration day it was in the catholic faith.

I recall learning (and maybe even blogging) the "San" part at one point but I had forgotten it.

While I'm at it, here's how some of the counties in California got their names:

*MONTEREY
Created 1850. It derived its name from the Bay of Monterey. The word itself is composed of the Spanish words monte and rey, and literally means "king of the forest." The bay was named by Sebastian Vizcaino in 1602, in honor of the Conde de Monterey, the Viceroy of New Spain.
 
*NAPA
Created 1850. Named after Napa Valley. The word napa is of Indian derivation and has been variously translated as "grizzly bear," "house," "motherland" or "fish." Of the many explanations of the names's origin, the most plausible seems to be that it is derived from the Patwin word napo meaning house.

*NEVADA
Created 1851. Named after the mining town of Nevada City, a name derived from the term "Sierra Nevada." The word nevada in Spanish means "snowy" or "snowcovered."

*SACRAMENTO
Created 1850. The county was named by Captain Moraga after the Sacramento River. The word Sacramento signifies "Sacrament" or "Lord's Supper."

*SAN FRANCISCO
Created 1850. The sixth mission in California was established here by Padre Junipero Serra on October 9, 1776, and was named Mission San Francisco de Asis a la Laguna de los Dolores (Saint Francis of Assisi at the Lagoon of Sorrows). The mission is now known as "Mission Dolores."

Heh

Bush made a gaffe during his speech - he's SUCH an idiot


Excerpts from this article at The American Thinker:


At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party.

Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854.

Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned.

Actually, they did more than yawn; government-funded PBS has altered the transcript of the President's speech, removing the offending comment.

The New York Times transcript has the following quote:
"We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party. But in the middle of a civil war, he was also a leader who looked to the future -- a Republican President who mobilized government to build the Transcontinental Railroad -- (applause) -- launch the National Academy of Sciences, set up the first land grant colleges. (Applause.) And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set."
But how does it appear in the PBS transcript?
"We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future - a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges. And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set."

Suddenly I don't feel so alone - Thanks, Penn

POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS SHOULD BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!


It's wasn't a speech about jobs, it was a kick-off to reelection.



From IHTM.

It would be laughable but he uses this to steal my money


Mankind faces extinction, the Prince of Wales has warned, unless humans transform our lifestyles to stop mass consumption, run away climate change and destruction of wildlife. More here:

Yes, I guess the Prince heard tell of these new "findings" by "scientists."
Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain. This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by a NASA-affiliated scientist and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University ... 

For the record, Pennsylvania State University is the home of Michael Mann, the "scientist" whose hockey stick graph conveniently left out the Medieval Warm Period. Mann was also investigated by the University for his role in the "Climategate" scandal of faked temperature data. More at Mike's America.

Yes, cuz if I were an alien capable of blasting your planet to dust I would do that right away  rather than bothering to warn you.

Hey, idiot libs ... is this setting off your bullshit detector yet? No?  The Klown prays: "Oh lord, please deliver us from these pinheads."

Awesome new boardgame for "Democratics"


The political boardgame, Spread the Wealth Around, exists to train you bitter clingers to practice the art of class warfare, dodge death panels, cheat on your taxes and do your small part to increase our national debt.
 
Choose membership in one of four organizations: Public Service, ObamaCare, Big Labor or Wall Street. From your perch atop the ruling class, you’ll bankrupt other players, drag them before show trials, carve them up in unnecessary surgery or just get one of your big labor goons to whack ‘em in Rocko Roulette.


Rather than accumulate wealth in Spread the Wealth Around, you’ll rack up mountains of debt – just like Obama’s America. Scam dead people and collect their Social Security in Public Office. Unplug granny and play the lawsuit lottery in ObamaCare. Gamble and go burnin’ and lootin’ with Big Labor. Cut in line for your Wall Street bailout – it’s all for the children.

Spread the Wealth Around is the perfect gift to cure that troglodyte Republican friend or conservative relation. No need for sensitivity training or coaching on tax and spend Obamanomics. Put away those teacher’s union pamphlets and Mao’s little red book. Play the political game that’s making the world safe for socialism!



Do you believe everything you see in the mainstream media, or just feel like you missed out on Cash for Clunkers and ACORN brothels? Do you want to take other people’s money for the nanny state and social justice? You’ll play this political game like any pro in Washington.

Why earn when you can spend? Why work when you can party? You don’t have to be an assistant deputy undersecretary for central planning to get too big to fail – you just have to Spread the Wealth Around!

If you never let a crisis go to waste, then leave behind the little people in the tea party, and get your green job aboard the high speed train to the ruling class.

Prosperity is just another government program away, so don’t wait for global warming and the next ice age before playing the ultimate boardgame for Bamster bureaucrats. Like the deficit and gas prices, there’s no where to go but up! It’s time to reward your friends, punish your enemies and get your fair share of stimulus money.

Harry Reid - He will teach you a lesson


Several Senate and House Republicans are planning to skip President Obama's address tonight to a joint session of Congress, in part because they believe he will be showing them nothing new when he unveils his big job creation proposal.

But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has found a way to keep those pesky Republicans in the building, or at least in his chamber.

Reid on Thursday scheduled a vote for after Obama's speech, and it's not one many in the GOP will want to miss. As soon as Obama is done talking, the Senate will proceed to a measure to disapprove a $500 billion increase in the debt limit.

Reid's move means that Sen. David Vitter, R-La., has to skip the party he was planning back home to celebrate the opening night of the NFL season, which will feature the Louisiana Saints.

"Typical Harry Reid," Vitter wrote in a letter to those invited to his party as well as the media. "Pens in those who would have skipped speech, like me. So now I'll miss my own Saints game party at home." More here:

LOL ... You people thought you were going to get away with ignoring the libs? Think again, jackasses. I love it when politicians push others around just to show their power ... it shows how they're smarter than you.

Thanks FDR & "Democratic" jackasses

Hey - where'd you get that dog collar?



Brett Cummins, 33, woke up Tuesday to discover that a man he'd been with the night before was dead beside him in a hot tub, naked and wearing a dog collar, police say.

An Arkansas weatherman didn't predict he would wake up in a hot tub with a naked dead man, but that's exactly what police say happened.

Now authorities are trying to determine what killed Dexter Williams, whose body was found with a "dog collar" around his neck, according to a police report.

The mystery began Monday night, when KARK 4 News meteorologist Brett Cummins arrived at the home of John Barbour around 11 p.m. in Maumelle, just north of Little Rock, the report stated. The 33-year-old weatherman brought Williams, 24, with him. Barbour said he did not know the doomed man.

"They then began to drink and use illegal narcotics," Officer Gregory Roussie said Barbour told him. "Mr. Barbour stated he was not sure of the drugs that they were using but that they were snorting them."

About two hours later, Cummins and Williams went into the Jacuzzi to have a drink, and Barbour later joined them, police said. Shortly afterwards, Barbour said he left the two and went into the living room, where he fell asleep on the couch.

Barbour told police he awoke about 8 a.m. Tuesday and could hear Cummins snoring in the hot tub, the report said. He proceeded to gather glasses in the bathroom and wake up Cummins before realizing Williams was dead.

"Dexter's head was lying behind Brett's left shoulder," Barbour told police, according to the report. "After Brett awoke they discovered that Dexter was not conscious and his face was a different color."

The meteorologist was horrified, the report indicated. More here:

Yes, because ... How did this happen? Quite the mystery, eh?   A real stumper.  What demon from hell could be involved here? Brutal action.
