I'm a gun owning protect youself and your family guy but.....

Why did he have to get the second gun and empty it into the kid. That's just overkill but is it murder, probably not. Something more like illegally discharging a fire arm in the city limits.

it's just part of the new world order

Oil Is Plentiful, Demand Weak. Why Are Gas Prices Going Up?They are hoarding their oil, that's why.

It's the idea that the countries that have an economic base have to support those with no base. You have massive poverty because you do nothing else if you have a valuable resource as your only income. Then hell rig the market so you can continue to do nothing to improve your own base. It's another example of dragging the strong down to the level of the weak. That's how you level the playing field.

It's what we did to education in this country. The powers that be have decided to expand that mistake to include the whole world. Help the poor to move ahead, don't cripple yourself so that you can match their stride.

We need to become energy independent even if we have to kill a few birds in the process. I hate the idea of killing anything as I'm sure every tree hugger does. But I'm sure that the majority of them eat meat. Something had to die to feed you, it's the same with energy. There is no painless solution. Don't make me sit in a cold house so that some snail can live, Make no mistake it will be a cold winter at my house if inflation and the carbon tax do what I expect.

judges and real work

I have been busy working on my motor bike hobby. If I get an especially problematic build, I tend to neglect reading the news. If I don't read then I don't find anything significant enough to comment on. Today thought I did find time. This is the white house line on the new supreme court nominee.

"She was simply making the point that personal experiences are relevant to the process of judging, that your personal experiences have a tendency to make you more aware of certain facts in certain cases, that your experiences affect your understanding," Gibbs said. "I think we agree with all that."

So if this is true for judges why do they instruct a jury to put away personal opinions and judge based solely on the law. Are we going to have different interpretations of the law based on the judges race and religion. If so the courts system will seem more shopping than wallmart. Everyone will want a judge who looks like them.

I wonder what happened

I wonder what happened to yesterday's post.

It seems to have gotten lost or removed. It looks as though something went haywire. The gist of it was Odrama will most likely make a few speeches about how terrible North Korea with a bomb is. He might even cut off their rewards for dropping the nuke program. Then I expect him to sit back hope it all goes away. The public has such a short memory that they will let him off the hook even if he wasn't Odrama the master magician of empty words.

Things will just fester till there is a new president and congress with the balls to actually do something. Once all the other terrorist get the picture that nothing is really going to happen it will open season on Americans again.

I really do hope I'm wrong about this.

Ps. has anybody seen all those new bridges and highways we are supposed to get. It's summer and the building looks even less than last year around my town. There is no local tax money at all to work on anything. Budgets are being slashed left and right.

Memorial Day message...

God bless our troupes in the field. From the special forces operative, or the guy driving a truck taking ammo to the fire teams. or man in the air conditioned office sending checks to their families back home, God bless you each and every one. Some of us have have a healthy respect for those of you putting it out there for us. Thank you and God (whoever yours might be) be with until you are safely home with your family.

For those of you who don't honor the military men and women, who are out there somewhere serving to keep us all free, go to hell.

grave concern

President Obama calls North Korea's announcement "a grave concern to all nations."

Ya think so. So what now O'Drama. You gonna make a couple of more speeches so the media can put you on the evening news, then just let is slip away until one of those nukes is on my grandson's playground. I have no concerns that it will be a missile from N. Korea. I have a concern that it will be a nuke sold to some terrorist group who can raise enough money to pay for it then ship it here in a cargo container. Then truck the container to my grandson's school. Or maybe it will be your grandson's school instead. Not likely they can contain the damage to the white house and capitol hill.

If they could there might be less concern.

Where is the drama

Following our new president. There is enough drama in the world right now to keep him on the front pages. W0hen there isn't any more drama, he is going to make some. I'm positive of that.

He chose to address the naval academy this week. He could have gone to west point, the Coast Guard or even the Air Force academies but John McCain's son Jack was graduated from the Naval Academy so he went there. What a no class move that was. The publicity was better since the media could make a big deal of Jack being part of the show. McCain had to ask him not to mention his family in his speech. He did respect that request the president at least did that right, thought I'm sure it was hard for him to do.

Obama wanted to be sure the cameras would rolled when he said I wont send you to war needlessly. That sure takes the military option off the table for most emergencies. Good call BO.. Now the world leaders are sure you have no spine. By the way, Afghanistan is going to break your heart guy. Ask the soviets if you doubt it.

I guess I'm going to have to give him a new name.... Drama Obama... Could he find more excuses to do his politicking or what. I suppose he thinks going to The Navy Academy graduation showed class, well he was wrong. It showed him to be the narcissistic politician some of us knew that he was all along.

Well guys we definitely have not seen the last of him not even for a day.

One more thing

If Gates felt that way about Gitmo why the hell did he take the job when offered it by Bush. I think Gates just likes to get along with whoever is in the white house. I don't have a problem with that but why not just say I don't voice my opinion I am just an employee. No instead he jumps into the fray like a cheap politician. All the respect I had for the guy is flying out the window fast.

Deeds talk bullshit walks.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – President Barack Obama promised graduating midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy on Friday that, as their commander in chief, he will only send them "into harm's way when it is absolutely necessary." In his first address to military graduates, Obama also pledged to invest in the men and women who defend America's liberty, not just in the weapons they would take with them into battle against 21st century threats.

Is he saying we should not have put the terrorist on the run in Afghanistan. I wonder what his alternative would have been.. Maybe send a couple of cruise missiles to blow up an empty tent.

I wouldn't trust this yahoo to do the right thing. It's easy to promise to give the troupe what they need, let see him talk the democratic congress in to cutting something besides the defense budget. Like maybe some of their give away programs.

Time will tell and I expect that it won't be pretty. I wonder if the press will hold him to this kind of promise. I doubt it they are married to this guy.

Thursday, May 21, 2009

So who is right and who is wrong.

Obama says we lost our way during the war on terror.

Chaney says we kept you safe. It worked.

So do we want to be buried on the high ground. I wouldn't mind but I would hate to bury my grandson there.

nothing worth commenting on lately

Pretty much the news speaks for itself. Joe biden giving up state secrets then swearing he didn't. Obama acting like god. That is god with a little g.

I think the Israelis have his number... Give him a fiddle while the middle east burns. Same ole same ole

They did the right thing

Sri Lanka: Tamil Tiger rebel chief has been killed

I don't know if you have been following this story or not but it went like this: for decades these terrorists have been attacking the Sri Lanka people. They have forced children to join the army and at one time ran a shadow state in the north of the country. Does this sound a little like Pakistan at the moment.

So the government finally gets the upper hand on the rebels. They have them backed into a corner and are about to wipe them out. Our president calls for a cease fire. What the hell does he want with a cease fire. That is a chance for the terrorist to withdraw and come back as a gorilla army again.

Fortunately the Government of Sri Lanka said not just no but hell no. They went in and finished the terrorist army. They get a pat on the back from me for a job well done. Make a martyr of the leader, well maybe so, but there won't be any hostage taking and demands for his release either.

What is it when the good guys get the upper hand for a change, the world wants them to just stop and let the bad guys regroup. Sorry the Liberals have it all wrong. Kill them all and let God sort them out, that my opinion. People die in wars, Thats why it's called war. If they didn't it would be called peace.

If you hide a terrorist you are a terrorist. It's kind of like GW said. In this you are with us, or you are with them, period. If you let terrorist live next door, don't be surprised when you are caught in the cross fire.

Dancing as hard as he can....

I have done some thinking about this and decided that Obama has to keep on the campaign trail his whole four years to have any chance to keep the people fooled. If the news media and the people take a look at what he has done without seeing him in campaign mode he will fall apart fast.

All flash and bad ideas, I think. We will see what happens, when he can keep dancing no longer. He might be able to dance the whole time or he might have to settle in to be a president, not just a campaigner.

Reverend Wright, no matter what you think of him personally, had it right. In the end Wright is a pastor and Obama is a politician.

what do you expect?

Guns are selling well, too. Total firearms sales rose 27.5 percent at Smith & Wesson for the three months ending Jan. 31. It's not a sudden interest in hunting behind the increase;

I believe the feeling once was okay it's only money. So I'm not going to risk my life or take someone Else's life over ten bucks in a paper bag. Well I think that thinking has changed.

For one thing we are afraid that as the economy sours the possibility of being a victim increases, Now they feel that the likelihood that a criminal will injuring them has gone up. Also their ability to recover from a loss is down. Probably most likely is that they feel helpless to stop the men in suits and briefcases from stealing their money. They can sure as hell stop the junkie who tries it.

Of course those folks in favor of gun control are up in arms. Why should you have a ak47 to defend your home. I happen to think a shotgun with birdshot is more likely to be of use, but a couple of hundred rounds sprayed in the general direction of a runny nosed junkie should also work.

what you have to have

So what does the United States have to do to really be part of this new world order which the lefties want so much. There is no way one country can have a standard of living so much higher than all the others. So like they said, we have to reduce our standard of living to match the median country or bring all the others up to ours. Now I have no idea what that country is, but I can tell you this. It will much easier to drive ours down than to bring all the others up to our level. I can also see how it's going to happen.

First we have to demonize those who make more than the high average income. Auto workers and finance guys. Then we have to beat their salaries in line with everyone else. To do that the government needs a vote in how the company is run. Look for more government involvement in business and industry.

Then of course we need run away inflation so that the money of the average worker, is worth less. That is the way to cut the standard of living across the board. If you ask Americans to take a cut in pay, to work for say what a Chinese factory worker earns, there would be a revolt. Instead just run the prices up on everyone so the true standard of living falls. Do it in increments and say it's to save their jobs. The sheep will fall in line behind the judas goat.

Yes that is the worst case scenario and there are three kinds of people necessary to make it happen. First you need committed smooth talking politicians to sell the dream not the reality of it all. Then you need enforcers to see that the people are brow beat (the media) into accepting the new order, and finally you need the masses to do what they always do, go along quietly.

Guys big brother is here and his name is Obama... Keep a close eye on the constitution they will be trying to rewrite it to suit themselves. Oh yes one more kind of people have to be in the mix. The people who know better but let it happen.

Hollywood had it wrong, it isn't going to be the age of the machines. It's going to be the age of the sheep. The elitist will lead us to the ovens and most of the masses will go with a smile on their faces.

what happens when we can't repay this

WASHINGTON – The government will have to borrow nearly 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year, exploding the record federal deficit past $1.8 trillion under new White House estimates. Budget office figures released Monday would add $89 billion to the 2009 red ink — increasing it to more than four times last year's all-time high as the government hands out billions more than expected for people who have lost jobs and takes in less tax revenue from people and companies making less money.

The unprecedented deficit figures flow from the deep recession, the Wall Street bailout and the cost of President Barack Obama's economic stimulus bill — as well as a seemingly embedded structural imbalance between what the government spends and what it takes in.

As the economy performs worse than expected, the deficit for the 2010 budget year beginning in October will worsen by $87 billion to $1.3 trillion, the White House says. The deterioration reflects lower tax revenues and higher costs for bank failures, unemployment benefits and food stamps.

Just a few days ago, Obama touted an administration plan to cut $17 billion in wasteful or duplicative programs from the budget next year. The erosion in the deficit announced Monday is five times the size of those savings.

Are they going to repo the statue of liberty and melt it down for scrap. Will China take over the big three automakers. No they wouldn't want that. Just the missle defense program. I expect those bozos in charge would give it to them.

And there will be trillions more for a bloated health care system coming to a theater near you. It would be funny except I have begun to like my grandson these days. I hate to see us selling him into slavery. Wait is that what these bozos want a return to slavery with everybody a slave this time.

If you doubt it..

If you doubt that inflation is already here take a look at the prices in the grocery store. In all fairness gasoline is too volatile to use as a marker, but groceries are not. Everything is going up almost weekly in the stores.

Now. would you rather have a temporary recession in the finance market or an overall upward pressure on prices. First Recession effects those who put themselves on the edge of financial ruin. The over extended borrower was the first to feel it. Then industries began to cut back as the country had to wean itself off bad credit induced spending. That effected ten percent of the then working people.

Now who do you think is hurt by inflation. EVERYBODY... Like recession some more than others. If wages rose at the same rate as inflation, just us old guys on incomes that will never be able to keep pace with it would be in trouble. But you know what, most of us have our big expenses trimmed to almost nothing. Inflation hurts us sure, but we have probably as much disposable income as working people. Hell we can even eat cat food if we have to. We know how to survive. My feeling is for the guy with two car payments a house full of rug rats and whose job is low paying anyway. He just can't keep up with the rise in prices.

So America you traded a few jobs for huge inflation to come. Now that's change we CAN'T live with. And who is going to be hurt most? The working poor, the ones who carried the vote for Obama. Well good luck folks.

The unions and government who is indebted to the unions now owns most of Chrysler and soon will of GM. So tell me what are they going to cut if they hope to keep pace with the Chinese and Indian workers who make next to nothing compared to them. And even better the government will be appointing the executives. If you think they can't make a competitive car now. Just wait.

The good news is you can't fool all the people all the time.

I would like to see the GOP represent the WORKING poor a lot better than they have. Let the Democrats have the sick, the lame, and the lazy. What the Gop needs is the single mom who works at flipping burgers on our side. I consider them My people. We just need to speak to them and they will understand. So far we have done a terrible job at that. Somebody get out there and explain what is coming in a few months. Explain what their parents know, there is no free lunch.

most get two minutes

Most presidents get about two minutes of their press corp dinner speech on tv/ Superstar gets the whole speech. Man when the press bends over they really bend over. Tell me again how there is no liberal bias in the press...

what's it gonna take to wake em up.

Obama cuts benefits to cop's widows and orphans, even as he says he is here to help in this time of a troubled economy... Nancy (speaker of the house) is tap dancing as hard as she can. Trying to get out of the politically expedient lies she has been telling. Democrats (Harry Reid) thinks paying your income tax is voluntary. No wonder so many tax cheaters are in the cabinet.

It still doesn't seem that people get it. These people are not your friends. They are going to sell us all out to stay in power. It's easier to buy a vote than to earn one. Wake up America, you screwed up and now you have to live with it. For god's sake start holding these people responsible for their actions.

Good luck with that one.

A real tragedy

Munchkin Mickey Carroll dies

One of the last surviving Munchkins from the beloved film "The Wizard of Oz" passes away at 89

I was amazed that yahoo news didn't find a way to work Obama's name into the story. Still it was a sad day for little people everywhere. I understand there is a very high jobless rate among little people. Maybe Obama will comment on that before the end of the news cycle.

Thursday, May 7, 2009

see how they feel about it now....

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama sent Congress a detailed budget Thursday boasting of cutting or killing 121 federal programs in a belt-tightening he likened to that of most Americans in difficult times. But the trims amounted to a tiny fraction of the new spending he wants, and some have already been nixed by allies on Capitol Hill.

On the other hand, some of Obama's proposed trims are recycled from George W. Bush's hit list and won't be popular with some Democrats. For instance, he proposed ending a $400 million-a-year program that pays states and counties for keeping illegal immigrants in their jails — a Bush idea rejected previously by the Democratic-controlled Congress.

Obama proposed:
Slashing almost in half a benefits program for the families of slain police and safety officers from $110 million to $60 million.

Doing away with a $142 million program to help states pay to clean up abandoned mines.

He called for a $3 increase in per-segment air fare taxes starting in 2012

New spending

Spending an additional $584 million for pandemic flu efforts, on top of the $1.5 billion in emergency money for 2009 that he asked Congress for in the wake of the swine flu outbreak. (why are they still trying to scare us when there was no epidemic)

Setting up a $1 billion program to develop or rehabilitate housing for the poor.

It's going to be interesting to see how they try to sell those cuts to the people in light of the huge spending increases.

You Gotta Love it

A key part of President Obama's energy plan -- replacing fossil fuels with green alternatives -- is facing increasing opposition from an unlikely source: environmentalists.

Some environmentalists, who have successfully fought a wind farm on the border of Oregon and Washington, are trying to block a massive solar plant in the Mojave desert. And now an Oregon county is considering a ban on wind power in the foothills of the blue mountains.

"We all want to be as green as we can be. But at what cost?" Richard Jolly of the Blue Mountain Alliance. "To take everything from us? This valley could be surrounded by them."

Seems the tree huggers want all this new green crap, just as long as it's not in their backyard. Wasn't that the same thing they said about oil. We will take all we can get, as long as they don't drill for it here.

It's just too funny to see them hustling around trying to find excuses to put that noisy windmill and ugly solar panel in someone else's back yard. I wonder if we are going to have to import solar and wind power next. Just amazing that they can't even be happy when they win.

I expect the dems to knuckle under to them again since they were a vocal group of supporters. Welcome to the real world of the Al Gore's nightmare on elm street.

More Americans taking drugs for mental illness

By Julie Steenhuysen Julie Steenhuysen – Tue May 5, 4:18 am ET

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Many more Americans have been using prescription drugs to treat mental illness, in part because of expanded insurance coverage and greater familiarity with the drugs among primary care doctors, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday.

They said 73 percent more adults and 50 percent more children are using drugs to treat mental illness

Well I always said they were crazy....

talk about dumb and dumber

From a distance the large ship on the horizon looked like the perfect target, ripe for a successful spot of piracy.

But as Somali pirates sped toward the vessel sailing near the Seychelles Islands on Sunday, they were horrified to see two boats and a helicopter set off from their target and launch their own counter-attack.

They had failed to spot in the dazzling sun, that the "merchant ship" they thought they were intercepting was actually a French naval ship bristling with cannons, radar technology and armed commandos.

Some days the fish just jump in the boat for you. They got captured of course.

Sometimes I think the reporters are the dumb ones. They keep telling us about all the intel the pirates have and all the modern equipment. If they had all that intel and all the sophisticated equipment the media claims they have, how come they tried to hijack a french gunboat. More snow from the press I think. Pretty much like the swine flu pandemic.. yeah right.

And back home Obama is out cheer leading again. The liberals want to make sure no day goes by without him being the center of attention. I wonder how long it's going to take for the rest of the country to get it. He is just the puppet and a lot of guys have the strings in their hands. It's going to be leadership by faceless men in back rooms I fear. What the democrats found was a charming guy to romance the American people. Running someone the people could feel all intelligent and progressive by voting for got them the office. Now they are going to pull him out every time they have something else to shove down our throats.

What I don't get is the media selling out. Don't they know that the first thing to go in a society that goes bad is the free press. I would be worried if I were them. Of course they are too busy jumping on the press that is a dissenting voice. Life is sure going to be interesting for the next few years.

Like a car with no gas in the tank

Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his minions and allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including TN, Illinois and Indiana ) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture, a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including handloaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more! If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

Please give this the widest distribution possible and contact your Reps!

It's the ammo, not the guns....
I've said for a long time that they wouldn't go for your guns, they'd go for your ammo... guns have a Constitutional protection. Ammo does not. A list of states where this legislation is pending is in the final paragraph. Not in CO yet, they'll go where the pansies are first.

Heads up to all of you who swore to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic. Let your state Legislatures know that we do not want this bill passed, and petition them to vote no on this bill. We should keep after them until the bill is closed by bombarding them with e-mails, phone calls, and letters.

Get to all your politicians to get to work and NOT LET THIS HAPPEN!!! The 2008 Legislative session has begun, and the Ammunition Accountability Act is being introduced across the country. Below is a list of states where legislation has already been introduced:

Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

More information can be found at:

No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. - Mark Twain (1866)

Deal with the devil...

It looks as though Pakistan will try to appease Washington this time. Last time they tried to appease the Taliban. Looks to me like they are blowing with the wind.

I hope there is a plan to secure those nukes, if the Taliban over runs the place. Everybody's fear is Islamic radicals with a nuke. Sort of like the inquisition in reverse and on steroids.

Well its going to be a mess for a while it seems.

Insurance companies are such thieves

I don't think we have to worry about socialized medicine for a while. Insurance companies are such thieves, they will find a way around whatever the government does.

I say this because we paid our house off and it was time to take a look at our insurance policies. As the agent explained to me you can not insure your house for the market value of the house. You have to insure it for at least 80% of the replacement cost. That cost is figured by what a contractor would charge to produce the same size house but using modern building materials. Even if you try to explain that you would simply walk down the street and buy a house like your for half the replacement cost, you still can't insure your house for that amount of money.

So you ask the agent what happens if my house burns. Answer... We will pay to have the house rebuilt up to the amount of your policy less the deductible. So my house that has a market value of 75k has to be insured for 105k. Now what if I have a total loss? but I don't want to rebuild here. Then you can rebuild somewhere else and we will still pay the contractor up to the amount of your policy.

But I don't want to rebuild at all... I want to buy something already to move into. Answer: Then we will work with you. What does that mean? It means we will work out a deal of some kind.

At this point I backed against the wall. I had a feeling I was in for an unpleasant experience.

So what if I just want to bank the money and live in a retirement community. Answer well in that case we would have to value your house based on a depreciation factor. The house is 80 years old At 2% per year depreciation the house I would have to pay you 60k to settle up.

For this I have paid insurance for 20 years. I have to decide how if feel about paying it any more. I am not required to have insurance now, so I'm going to be looking into it really hard. I expect to find that all insurance companies are thieves.

Oh by the way the agent said we wouldn't carry your insurance unless you insure it for the 105k We wouldn't want you left in a bad place. I said bull shit you want max premiums with minimum risk. He tried to tell me that wasn't the case. I laughed my ass off. I probably am going to have to find a new insurance company. I'm sure that I am now on some kind of watch list. I mean how dare I point out the obvious. Insurance companies are thieves.
