December 30th, 2009 CRIME / BOMBER / BOXING

Greetings once again from the West Texas Conspiratorial Jingoistic Gun Clinger's Association.

CHRISTMAS:

We had a pretty quiet Christmas at home and rather than the traditional turkey dinner my wife suggested that we have Mexican food which was way all right with me. We had a nice turkey dinner on Thanksgiving and Mexican food is good anytime in my book. Of course we would have rather been with our daughter and her family but we did get to talk with most of them on Christmas day. I had hoped for a Red Ryder One Hundred Shot Range Model Carbine, like Ralphie in "Christmas Story". But instead, I received:

Twenty-Two Turtle Doves

Thirty French Hens

Thirty-Six Calling Birds

Forty Gold Rings

Forty-Two Geese-A-Laying

Forty-Two Swans-A-Swimming

Forty Maids-A-Milking

Thirty-Six Pipers Piping

Thirty Ladies Dancing

Twenty-Two Lords-A-Leaping

Twelve Fiddlers Fiddling

Twelve Partridges In Pear Trees

I plan on trading all this stuff, except for the gold rings for some .223, .45, 9mm, and .357 magnum ammunition.

CRIME:

I read an article which stated that, according to F.B.I. statistics, during the first six months of 2009 at a time when firearms sales were up dramatically, there was a ten percent drop in murders.

During this same time period, firearms sales were up 28.8% in January; up 23.3% in February; up 29.9% in March; up 30.3% in April; up 15.5% in May; up 18.1% in June. These figures were based upon the background checks which were done by licensed firearms dealers.

Sort of makes one wonder if all the gun control advocates might be a bit deficient in math. Of course many of these sales were due to the dramatic increase in the number of Americans who have applied for conceal carry permits. Another occurrence which gun control advocates have been trying to tell us that the streets would be running red with the blood of innocent victims should honest Americans be permitted to carry firearms on their persons.

Second Amendment Foundation Executive Vice-President Alan Gottlieb stated that, "Gun Prohibitionists are all wrong when they argue that the more guns result in more crime. Firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens are no threat to anyone." "Hard facts trump hot air."

Additionally, I have read many reports over the past 10 years in which all violent crimes in jurisdictions which allow conceal-carry by private citizens have been on the decrease.

BOMBER:

In spite of the lies spouted by Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano and the idiot White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, it seems as if most Americans do not place much faith in the security measures of most airline companies.

After this latest bomber incident on the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit our incompetent Homeland Security Director came right out and said that the system worked as it should. Then right on her tail the incompetent White House Press Secretary parroted her words. BUT almost in the same sentence, HSD Napolitano admitted that the system had been a failure. I am not sure whether or not Press Secretary Gibbs made a U-Turn or not as I have a bit of a problem watching this inept slug for more than a few seconds at a time.

Let's look at some of the facts which perhaps should have alerted incompetent airport screeners:

Muslim Male

No Passport

One Way Ticket

Paid in Cash

No Luggage

Sort of makes me think that a little old fashioned PROFILING might have been in order. Wonder if this idiot bomber would like to try this while boarding an Israeli flight?

Of course after this information was made public, then and only then did the World's Most Articulate and Intelligent Human decide to make a statement. Then of course we were subject to the usual placating crap about "Reviewing Our Policies" and perhaps "Re-Thinking our current procedures.

I don't know about the rest of you but the actions of President Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm,Mmm,Mmm) and his carnival side-show staff is wearing a bit thin. Just stop and think of how many times we have seen this President immediately jump to make sure that the rest of us common-folk don't jump to conclusions and make up our minds on what we believe to be the truth, then be supported by members of his freak-show staff, then finally come out and make some idiotic statement about "Boldly" and "Swiftly" and "Vigorously" conduct a REVIEW of our current policies.

Hey!!! sounds like I am almost PROFILING President Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm,Mmm,Mmm). OK. If the shoe fits....................... Besides, since 9/11 the liberal/socialist/democrat politicians and media have made the term "PROFILING" a dirty word.

I don't know if they are still doing it under this incompetent administration, but the F.B.I. and Law Enforcement and Intelligence Gathering Units, both military and civilian, have been Profiling for years. And, do you know why? BECAUSE IT WORKS!!!!

If a crime or series of crimes are committed by a White Male, 30 - 35 years old, 6 ft, Brown Hair, Blue Eyes, Heavy Build, then that is the description of the individual on whom you should concentrate your search.

So, if most of the terrorist acts are being perpetrated by Middle Eastern Males in their twenties and a common behavior pattern for their attempts to blow up a commercial airliner are that they usually purchase a one way ticket; pay with cash; have either no I.D. or suspicious I.D., no luggage, then, dare I say it, those are the types of people on whom the security people should concentrate.

Our airport security is a joke for the biggest part and I blame it on POLITICAL CORRECTNESS primarily. Everyone seems to be afraid of offending a member of the Muslim religion or a member of a minority. Do these people have to succeed in blowing up more of our airliners before our idiotic government wakes up and grows a set?

BOXING:

I was reading one of Thomas Sowell's columns from December 30th. The article wandered off a bit from Dr. Sowell's normal political observations and dealt with "Old Boxing Matches". Now I have pretty much lost interest in professional boxing over the past 15 years but when I was growing up in Houston, Texas with a total of 4 TV channels at the time, we had professional boxing matches on TV every Wednesday and Friday nights. The Wednesday night fights were known as "The Blue Ribbon Bouts" since they were sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. The Friday night fights were on the "Gillette Cavalcade of Sports" and of course were sponsored by the Gillette Razor Blade Company.

As a kid growing up in the 1950's I got to see some of the real all time greats in the sport. This was prior to each weight division having at least 3 and sometimes 4 different champions, depending upon the boxing organizations.

In the 1950's the only boxing authority in the U.S. was the International Boxing Club or IBC and each weight division had ONE Champion. Of course IBC President James D. Norris was later indicted for multiple crimes. And he had some associates who were a bit questionable. I remember another guy who was heavy into the mob and boxing. His name was "Blinky" Palermo.

Sugar Ray Robinson, Randy Turpin, Gene Fulmer, Carl "Bobo" Olsen were all middleweight champions at one time or another. The heavyweight champions during the 1950's were Jersey Joe Walcott and Rocky Marciano up through 1956.

The light heavyweight champions were Joey Maxim and Archie Moore. Of course Ray Robinson also at some point held the welterweight championship as did Kid Gavilan.

GREATEST FIGHT EVER: Archie Moore VS Yvonne Durelle. Archie Moore was the world champion and Yvonne Durelle was the Canadian light heavyweight champ. The fight was in 1958 and Archie Moore, the champ, was knocked down 3 times in the first round and twice more in other rounds up until about the middle of the fight. Then that old man began to give the Canadian a real lesson. He knocked Durelle down three times in various rounds with the last one being in the 11th round and Durelle was counted out. Anyone who saw that fight will agree that it was the best fight they ever saw.

I must also mention another heavyweight fighter. His name was Bob Satterfield. He was a black fighter who looked like a 200 pound lean mean Sugar Ray Robinson. This guy could hit harder than any other heavyweight I ever saw. He was fast and a superior boxer. His only problem was that just a medium punch to his jaw put him out cold. In those days, a fighter could be saved by the bell in any round. I actually saw Satterfield declared the winner of a fight while he was lying flat on his back, out cold. With about 8 seconds left in round 10, his opponent who Satterfield had beaten to a pulp for 9 rounds and 2 minutes and 52 seconds of the 10th, landed a lucky medium punch and Satterfield went to sleep.

Great fighter but a jaw made of very thin glass. I was fortunate enough to also watch every championship fight featuring Rocky Marciano. One tough cookie who landed perhaps the best right hand to the jaw of Jersey Joe Walcott, that I have ever seen.

Dr. Sowell also refers to this Marciano - Walcott fight and that particular punch. But the main thing Dr. Sowell addresses is that in those days: "Seldom did any of these boxers go in for showboating during the fight. There was no denigrating the other fighter, either before or after the fight". "The loutish, loudmouth and childish displays that have become all too common today in boxing, as well as other sports, began in the 1960's, like so many other signs of social degeneration."

I would like to add that this type of behavior has become all too common in almost all sports. All of the trash talking and chest bumping and end zone dancing detract from the sport and the athletes themselves. I might also add that attempting to make a Hip-Hop or Blues or Rock and Roll song out of our National Anthem leaves me with an uncontrollable urge to knock the crap out of the performer. For those of you residing in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" that means I do not care for it.

As for as perhaps the second best fight I have ever seen, I would have to step up to more modern times and cast my vote for "The Thrilla' In Manilla" or Ali - Frazier III. I do not believe I have ever seen both fighters as thoroughly whipped as they both were when that fight was stopped. Incidentally, win - lose - or draw, I NEVER saw Joe Frazier in a dull fight.

MORE STUFF:

I went to Hobbs, New Mexico late Monday afternoon. One of my reasons for making that trip was to do my annual New Mexico pistol qualification which comes due each December. Of course the shooting is really secondary. Visiting with as many old friends as possible is the real high point. Normally about a dozen or so retirees gather at the Hobbs Police Department and one of the Officers from the training section runs us through the pistol course. Of course everyone is completely serious and if someone makes a mistake it is quickly forgotten. Yeah, right.

But as always I got to visit with about 15 or so old friends but there never seems to be enough time to see everyone you want to see. Due to the weather I decided to leave as soon after lunch on Tuesday as possible. On this particular trip of course I was the oldest retiree there and it never seems to fail that I realize how much all those folks have meant to me in my life.

I was able to get in a short visit with the first name on our prayer list, Tony Knott. Tony had just returned from Tennessee where he underwent a very painful treatment for a spot on his lungs.

We moved to Hobbs, New Mexico from Houston, Texas in July of 1973 and even before I went to work at the Hobbs Police Department, several young men about my daughter's age were at my house on the first or second day we were in Hobbs. One of them was Tony Knott. One was Flint Knight and one was Steve Cox. I liked all three of these young men who were also strong into athletics. I missed very few of their home football games up until they graduated. Even after they went off to college, they kept in touch and Tony and Flint went to college in San Angelo, Texas at Angelo State University. Flint would always bring me back a pickup load of firewood when he would return to Hobbs. Tony and Flint both went to work later at the Hobbs Police Department and retired from there. I have kept up with them throughout the years and am proud to say that they both have beautiful families beautiful homes and live two doors down from each other.

To my old friends whom I did not get to see on this trip, please forgive me as time just ran out. When the weather gets a bit warmer we will return for several days and I will have a chance to catch those whom I missed this trip.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2009 has all in all been a very good year for us. We are enjoying good health. We have a wonderful family and friends and all in all I sort of feel like the statement made by Lou Gehrig on the day of his retirement.

"Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth"

I sincerely wish all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR and please remember to keep our military men and women in your prayers.

So with that I will leave you with this solemn New Years Resolution: In 2010, I will try to be a bit kinder and gentler and more understanding with President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid.......... wait a minute............. let me think about that for a moment....................................... never mind. I must have been overcome with a momentary attack of lunacy or something like that.

See you all next year.

December 23rd, 2009 FAMILY / GLOBAL / HOCKEY


Greetings once again from a frozen member of the West Texas Order Of Gun Clinging Conspiratorial Anti-Global Smear Merchants.

FAMILY AND HOCKEY

Between December 8th and December 16th, we were away from our home visiting our daughter and her family for about a week. We had dual reasons for choosing this particular time of year to visit Colorado. The first was the birth of our third great grandchild, a little boy, to our oldest grandson and his wife. They live in Gunnison, Colorado. The second was to watch an ice hockey tournament in Gunnison in which our two youngest grandsons participated. The oldest, Liam (12) plays in the pee wee division. The youngest, Landon (9) plays in the squirt division. I don't know exactly how many different divisions there are but they can accommodate kids from about 6 or 7 years old on up into their teen years. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these little guys play and was absolutely amazed at how accomplished many of them were. Our 12 year old plays Center Ice for the Gunnison Blades and our 9 year old is the goalie for his division of the Gunnison Blades.

During one of the games where our goalie was playing, I would walk to which ever end he was set up in goal which meant that at least one period I was at the opposition end of the rink. Of course the opposition parents and fans didn't know that the Blades' goalie was my grandson but I overheard many of them talking about him being probably the best goalie in the league. Made me pretty proud.

I just wish everyone could feel like I did for those eight days watching grandsons play hockey and also get to hold our newest great grandson. We spent most of our time in Gunnison but did spend a couple of days in Lake City, Colorado where our daughter and her family live. Our middle grandson also lives there and we got to visit with him.

Also while in Lake City I got to visit with the Hinsdale County Sheriff who is a really good guy. He and his wife are both retired Arizona State Troopers and good friends of our daughter and her family.

On the day we arrived in Gunnison we found out that our 12 year old grandson had just come back from hunting with his dad and that our grandson had killed a very large mountain lion. The following day the mountain lion was packed out and brought to Gunnison to report to the Game Warden which is required by Colorado law. I got to view this lion and he was a monster. I believe our son-in-law said that he measured 7 ft 11 7/8 inches from nose to tip of tail. That is one huge lion. Incidentally, several years back on one of our visits to Colorado, our daughter prepared a mountain lion pot roast which was absolutely delicious. Had I not been told up front that it was mountain lion meat I would have thought it was a very lean pork roast.

I was sorry that we had to leave to get back to San Angelo as we missed our grand daughter and her family coming to Colorado for Christmas.

Why did you leave, you ask? I will address that in the next section.

GLOBAL WARMING:

One night in Gunnison, Colorado at our grandson's in-laws house right outside of Gunnison the night temperature reached 22 BELOW ZERO. In town we had night time temperatures of -14 degrees several nights of -11 degrees with one day reaching a daytime high of +30 degrees for a few minutes. One of our daytime highs was +8 degrees.

All during this time it snowed on us every day except our last day. Several places in Colorado were receiving record snowfall. Also during this time period the President of the United States was over in Copenhagen at the idiotic World Climate Change Conference. Notice now how the all call it "Climate Change" instead of "Global Warming"?

I am here to tell you first hand that part of the globe might be warming but the news hasn't reached Gunnison, Colorado as of this writing. Since we have been back, Gunnison, CO has been the coldest spot in the nation.

Well, the liberals/socialists/democrats will say, Colorado is always cold in the winter. Yes that is true but please explain to me record cold weather in Philadelphia and for that matter, record snow in COPENHAGEN, which is the location where Al Gore and Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton are all over there lying to the European countries. Well better them than us, I suppose.

Ah, but all was not in vain. No sir. Our President entered into something called a Non-Binding Agreement with several other countries; China, Brazil and I believe India. No matter as the agreement is NON-BINDING. Let me share this thought with you all; If it is non-binding then it is useless. It is all show and no go.

A Non-Binding Agreement sort of reminds me of something I heard about several years ago in "The People's Republic of Austin, Texas". Some beer joint burned down and a few of the cops working the traffic around the fire were overheard making disparaging remarks about the place which was on fire. Evidently it was nothing but a trouble spot and its demise didn't bring a tear to the eyes of local law enforcement.

So what does the "People's Republic of Austin" do? Simple, the gave the owners if this joint somewhere around $100,000.00 which they called a "Forgivable Loan". When asked just exactly what a "Forgivable Loan" was the city officials said that it was a loan which did not have to be repaid. Let me point this little fact out so that even the folks in the "Freedom Loving Worker's Province of San Francisco" can understand. If you give me money and I do not have to pay it back then it IS NOT A LOAN. It is a gift.

I did manage to watch one film clip of Barack Hussein Obama (Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm) attempting to legitimize his participation in this Non-Binding Agreement and his explanation made no sense and he appeared to be totally confused as to what he was actually saying.

Ah, but of course then the presidential remarks were explained to us in detail by White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs. Now I really don't know what the hell it was all about.

The Global Climate Conference was a big joke and I believe it is about time that our present administration realized that it makes no difference at all what China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, or the European Union say since they are almost as adept at lying as is our Congress.

MORE STUFF:

While in Colorado, I was watching a news report on one of the cable channels and the female reporter was giving out information on the number of homicides along the Mexican Border. She made the statement that "There have been 1800 murders in the TINY MEXICAN BORDER TOWN OF CIUDAD JUAREZ." Now I am not sure exactly where this dingbat was from but the last time I checked, the population of Juarez, Mexico was about 1.5 million people. I don't consider a population of 1.5 million people exactly as qualifications for a "Tiny Mexican Border Town."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was watching FOX News yesterday and they were doing a report on the "Death Tax" or as we know it an "Inheritance Tax". Now for those of you still residing in the Gulag of Massachusetts this refers to people having to pay taxes on money or property which they inherit and on which the taxes have already been paid once. Anyway the point of this story is what this democrat hack/ liberal squack/ socialist heifer was saying about it. I tried to write it down as soon as I heard this sow utter it:

"We think a person should gain wealth through their own merits rather than through inheritance." Wonder if she was including Fat Teddy and the remainder of the Kennedy Clan in her thoughts?

Stop and think about this point of view which is prevalent among the democrats/socialists/liberals. First of all: Who is WE? Unless this old beetle had a mouse in her pocket their wasn't any WE on the television screen. Only her butt ugly self. Incidentally, in case you haven't gathered it by now, this squack had a face that would make a freight train take a dirt road.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then along comes Harry Reid. I was listening to the radio and an audio clip was played which featured that worm Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who made the statement that every 10 seconds, someone in America died due to lack of health insurance.

First of all, I would like to know just exactly where he gets his statistical information. Probably the same place that Barack Hussein Obama (Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm) gets his statistical information regarding jobs created/saved.

Then this prince of idiots continued by saying that it was "Heart Rendering".

I thought about this statement for about 10 seconds and realized that I didn't know exactly what "Heart Rendering" meant. I knew what "Heartrending" meant. So when I got home a few minutes later I looked up the term "Heartrending" and found that it meant exactly what I thought: Causing much grief or mental anguish.

Then I tried to find "Heart Rendering" or "Heartrendering" and drew a blank. Of course I knew what "Heart" meant and I also knew what "Rendering"meant and it does have several meanings: To submit for approval; to give in return or payment; to give or do a service; to depict by drawing; to play music; to pronounce a verdict; and finally TO MELT DOWN FAT. So as you see unless you were making a statement regarding melting down Harry Reid's FAT HEAD or perhaps melting down Al Gore's FAT ASS, the term rendering was a bit out of place. But so is Harry Reid.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Of course we all know of the know of the prostitute-like moves of Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Ben Nelson (D-NE) who pretty much sold out for backroom deals at the expense of the American Taxpayer. And we all should now realize that all this talk about "Blue Dog Democrats" and about what a real maverick Joe Lieberman was is all horse crap. In the long run, the "Blue Dog Democrats" and Joe Lieberman folded like cheap tents.

Other than matters regarding Israel, Joe Lieberman is the same liberal mutt who was Al Gore's Vice Presidential running mate in 2000, you remember the election which was stolen by George Bush.

The Blue Dogs were all show and they had no guts when it came to a real test.

BUT, my congratulations to the State of Alabama who has one Congressman who finally had enough of the democrat/socialist party. Yesterday he switched his party affiliation to the Republican Party. Now let's see if he will stick by his guns. I sure hope so.

_________________________________________________________________________

I don't know about the rest of you but I am getting plenty sick of some of these elected officials and certain news media slime trying to convince us that the Constitution of the United States is outdated or really doesn't mean what it says and that it is a living, breathing document. Bullshit!

The Constitution of the United States is a pretty strict document and it was meant to be. It was not meant to be flexible. If it was intended to be flexible it would have had a whole bunch of "mays" or "shoulds" instead of SHALL.

Just look at the Amendments:

Amendment I - Congress shall make no law ..................

Amendment II - A well regulated Militia, .............. shall not be infringed.

Amendment III - No soldier shall ....................................

Amendment IV - The right of the people ........................... shall not be violated............

............. no warrant shall issue ....................

Amendment V - No person shall be held....... nor shall any person be subject..............

Amendment VI - In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall ..............

Amendment VII - In Suits at common law.............. the right of trial by jury shall ........

............................. and no fact tried by jury shall be other-wise ..........

Amendment VIII - Excessive bail shall not be required ................

Amendment IX - The enumeration in the Constitution ..........shall not ...........

Amendment X - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor

prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively,

or to the people.

Amendments XI through XXVII all use the terms shall or shall not. Shall not is normally used when the government is prohibited from infringing upon an individual.

The Constitution of the United States was not written nor intended to give the government unlimited power. It was written to insure that the power of the country remained in the hands of the people.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My feelings were a bit hurt when only my friend, Larry Lilly, in Minnesota and Peary Perry in Austin remembered in that most revered of all holidays, KWANZAA. I actually got KWANZAA cards from these two people. But keep in mind, Peary lives in Austin and is a little crazy to begin with and the cold has frozen Larry Lilly's brain so that it doesn't function at top speed.

Incidentally, if some of you folks don't know the history behind KWANZAA you should really look it up and read all about it and realize that it is non existent holiday manufactured by a California criminal who gave himself a phony African name and made up a phony African holiday in order to, guess what, MAKE MONEY.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK. so much for griping today.

I do sincerely wish that all of you have a wonderful CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. I have thoroughly enjoyed communicating with you all and really do appreciate everyone who has dropped in to visit me in San Angelo, Texas.

My God bless you all in 2010.

Wednesday
December 2nd, 2009 CLIMATE / CRASHERS / SPEECH


Greetings from the West Texas Enemy Camp Of Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Jingoistic Ammunition Hoarding Smear Merchants. Not to be Confused with West Point who according to Varmint Chris Matthews was his description of the location of the latest speech forced upon the American public by The World's Most Articulate and Intelligent Human, Barack Hussein Obama - (Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm.)

Can you believe that an alleged news reporter referred to the West Point Campus as "Enemy Territory"? Of course Chris Matthews normally appears to possess the I.Q. of a bucket of dead frogs. (Now for those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that is rather low).

SPEECH:

It is extremely difficult for me to sit still and observe an entire speech given by the World's Most Articulate and Intelligent Human. So I try to watch it in small bits since a few hours prior to the speech, we are all subjected to the content of the speech which is given out ahead of time to various news outlets as well as MSNBC. Then we are subjected to a couple of hours of the same people telling us what we just heard. Almost makes one believe that these, for the most part, far left socialist news organizations believe us all to be stupid. I guess they already know that the far left socialists are a bit short on brains, but they mistakenly believe that we all fall into that category.

What I really watched on this occasion was the expressions on the faces of the West Point Cadets. I absolutely find it hard to believe that Barack Hussein Obama - (Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmm) has in his employ a staff whose members actually believe that this socialist liberal varmint can convince the majority of Americans that members of the U.S. Military actually look up to, and respect this self proclaimed savior of the free world.

It has become reasonably evident that each and every speech given by the World's Most Articulate and Intelligent Human says pretty much the same thing. He never misses an opportunity to blame George Bush for every problem on the globe. He additionally never misses an opportunity to blame America for every problem that he can't lay off on George Bush. He also feels duty bound to downplay the importance of winning a military engagement. But most of all, he says what he believes will please every political group. Part of his boring talks play to his far left base in the Democrat Party; Part tries to placate MODERATES and CENTRISTS; But he will always throw a bone which firmly sets the hook in the mouths of MODERATE REPUBLICANS. Keep in mind: Moderate = Liberal; Centrist = Liberal.

I listened to audio clips from several speeches made by Obama in the past 10 months and they are interchangeable. So I have learned that you can just skip the live speech and get the content, or lack thereof, either prior to OR immediately after the speech. Take your pick.

Also, one must wonder just exactly how you put a price on national security?

CRASHERS:

Now let me first of all say that I am not entirely sure who is who when we are speaking of Tareq and Michaele Salahi. As you all know these are the two people who allegedly crashed the State Dinner at the White House and for a short while rubbed elbows with the elite socialists who are the base of the Democrat Party.

I feel sure that at some point in time, several members of the U.S. Secret Service will be sacrificed to show just exactly how seriously the present administration takes security. According to Tareq and Michaele, they were invited ,but according to the original reports, they were not.

Now I don't want anyone to think that I don't take security in our country seriously but to be perfectly honest with all of you, I have a really hard time getting too bent out of shape on this incident which I have heard referred to as "Crashergate". As a matter of fact, I sort of feel a bit like Rhett Butler; "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn".

I am a bit more concerned about the security around our military installations and also our border security. Of course, the Obama administration doesn't appear to place our military and our borders very high up in the pecking order. I guess Obama feels as if Janet Napolitano has both of these areas pretty well under control. Excuse me, I should have said "Obama's Handlers".

In reality, this silliness is much ado about nothing.

CLIMATE:

OK. How much longer are we to be subjected to the Man Made Global Warming HOAX? Over the past five or six years I have read many articles and seen many reports from some pretty well respected climatologists who have told us all along that this theory pushed by Al Gore and the United Nations and a number of other radical socialists, is a, how shall I put it, oh yes, A LOAD OF CRAP.

Here is a little quote from Al Gore in attempting to sell the American public on the man made global warming theory: "We are conducting an uncontrolled experiment with this planet." As it turned out, the only thing which was uncontrolled was the environmental nut bags and their man made global warming theory. Why Jim, you sound like you are calling Al Gore and "Environmental Nut Bag." OK, let me think about that for a moment........................ Yep, that plus him giving the appearance that he just flat lied to the public.

In an article written by Christopher Monckton, former policy advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, I read the following:

"The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the 'global warming' fraud - for fraud is what we now know it to be - tampered with the temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures.

One of the thousands of e-mails recently circulated by a whistle blower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the world's four global-temperature data sets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant 'global warming' for 15 years - and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.

Worse, these arrogant fraudsters - for fraudsters are what we now know them to be - have refused, for years and years and years, to reveal their data and their computer program listings.

Now we know why: As a revealing 15,000 - line document from the computer division at the Climate Research Unit shows, the programs a nd data are a hopeless, tangled mess. In effect, the global temperature trends HAVE SIMPLY BEEN MADE UP."

Lord Monckton further refers to these proponents of man-made global warming as HUCKSTERING SNAKE-OIL SALESMEN and GLOBAL WARMING PROFITEERS.

Just think of how many of our tax dollars have been poured into the people who are pushing this junk-science, not to mention how many of our tax dollars have been diverted to this bunch of clowns by the United Nations. ENOUGH!!!!!

MORE STUFF:

In an editorial in the San Angelo (Sub) Standard Times on November 27th one of the editorial staff who has never uttered a conservative word or apparently had a conservative thought wrote about the recent terrorist murders at Ft. Hood,Texas; "We could have avoided this horror in Ft. Hood by not invading Iraq in the first place."

I said on the day it happened that it wouldn't take the democrats/socialists long to blame George Bush and that is exactly what this was, an attempt to blame President George Bush.

President Bush sure didn't do everything right but I really do believe that he had a great love and a very high degree of respect for the brave men and women in our military and to try to blame him for this terrorist attack is absurd.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Had about enough about Tiger Woods' accident? Me too. So this will be a Tiger Free Zone.
_________________________________________________________________________

I, along with most Americans have had an extremely low opinion of ACORN and have been of the mind that they were nothing but a socialist organization which bilked millions of dollars from the American government. I have been under the impression that they were nothing more than a criminal organization.

Then yesterday I saw where a famous personality actually came out and said that ACORN was a great organization and had done lots of good for our country. Well, I just about changed my opinion of ACORN. I mean, after all, how many organizations have the undying support of a personality as famous and politically astute as ROSANNE BARR?

You remember, a little earlier I showed an Al Gore quote regarding an uncontrolled experiment. Well it just came to me that I would love to conduct a controlled experiment to see just how many times you would have to kick Al Gore and Rosanne Barr in their fat asses before they started to squeal like pigs caught under a fence. Just a thought.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was listening to the news a couple of days ago and I heard about a government raid on some guy's house. I can't remember what the person was suspected of but it was somewhere in the Northeast part of the country. Anyway, the report was that the authorities seized several firearms and HUNDREDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION. OH NO!,, Not hundreds of rounds. It made one wonder if everyone involved in the media was as stupid as this particular reporter. My two youngest grandsons run through about 1,800 rounds of .22 ammunition every year.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning I had a really pleasant experience. One of the people on my regular mail list is a retired police officer. He invited me to join he and several other retired officers who met once each month. I did go and had a great time and met several folks with whom I had a great deal in common. I am looking forward to next month.

We are busy packing to leave for Colorado next Wednesday morning. We will be gone for about 9 or 10 days and I will not have access to a computer. And since I will be visiting a new great grand child and attending hockey games I probably won't have the inclination to be on a computer. And I am carrying about a thousand rounds of ammuntion to my grandsons.

So the next time I will be sending out my weekly gripes will be December 23rd.

Hope everyone has a very MERRY CHRISTMASd and I'll see you all again on the 23rd.

Wednesday
November 18th, 2009 POLITICAL CORRECTNESS / DEATH PENALTY


Hello once again from the Vast Right Wing Jingoistic Smear Merchant's Society.

COURT:

Of course the big news this past week is the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder has decided that a U.S. District Court in New York City is a far better place to bring terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to justice than a Military Tribunal. To say that I disagree with Attorney General Eric Holder is a mild understatement. Many have said that he has done this on his own. I seriously doubt that. I am sure that Holder gets his marching orders from the world's most articulate and intelligent human, Barack Hussein Obama. If he did decide this on his own then Barack Hussein Obama should dump him immediately or at the very least transfer him to a frozen asteroid several light years from planet earth.

Ah, but Attorney General Holder has assured us that the case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is soooooooo strong that a conviction is all but guaranteed. Now why is it that I have a problem believing an Attorney General who was appointed by the world's most articulate and intelligent human?

Could it perhaps be that I am familiar enough with the justice system to realize that on the surface their are any number of issues which can and will be brought up by the defense team which will most certainly be grounds for a successful appeal?

Let me express this in terms so that even the gentle people with flowers in their hair who reside in the People's Republic of San Francisco can understand.

1) Khalid Sheikh Mohammed IS a FOREIGN TERRORIST.

2) Khalid Sheikh Mohammed IS NOT an American Citizen.

3) Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, by being a terrorist combatant IS NOT guaranteed rights under the Geneva Conventions.

4) Khalid Sheikh Mohammed IS NOT guaranteed rights under THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

5) (And perhaps the most important) I AM NOT THE LEAST BIT CONCERNED WITH Khalid Sheikh Mohammed BEING BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. I want him PUNISHED by being EXECUTED.

And I would like a show of hands from everyone who believes that this whole business of trying him in a Civilian Criminal Court is nothing more than an opportunity for some defense team of lawyers to put on the show if the decade. Will we be subjected to the antics of another DREAM TEAM. Do de name O.J. Simpson ring a bell? Let us hope that the U.S. District Judge is a bit more competent that Judge Lance Ito, or has Obama appointed Lance Ito to a Federal Judgeship?

Oh, and there is this other little problem. How on God's green earth does anyone expect a competent and impartial jury to be picked in New York City?

Now here is the main question I have; If Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and others are to be tried in civilian court, then why is Attorney General Eric Holder allowing other terrorists to be tried before Military Tribunals?

And of course there is always the possibility of ONE JUROR who actually might sympathize with these mutts who will vote not guilty and hang the jury.

And of course there is always the possibility or should I say even a probability that some terrorist organizations will use this trial as an excuse to pull another attack in New York City which will cost more American lives. I do not believe that this is a chance worth taking. But evidently Attorney General Eric Holder does.

The bottom line though is this:

Our Intelligence forces -- Our Military -- George Bush and Dick Cheney will be the ones on trial, not these terrorists.

VETO:

The other afternoon I was listening to the Lou Dobbs radio program and several callers called in on different matters. One caller called in and said that he thought that it was important for the people to give a "Line Item VETO" power to the President of the United States.

In the past, I have always thought that since most state Governors have a Line Item Veto power in state government that the President of the United States should also have this power. I thought this for a couple of reasons:

Back about the time that the "Brady Bill" was passed into law another little addition to some already abundant and confusing firearms laws was added. This addition was not attached to any other laws regarding firearms. And it certainly was not offered as a law standing on its own merits. No, it was attached as an Amendment to some funding bill which had absolutely nothing to do with firearms. The main point of the law was to add another restriction to someone who wished to purchase a firearm.

Now for anyone who has purchased a firearm from a licensed dealer, you know that prior to the purchase you must fill out a form which was known as a 4473 form or yellow form. On this form it has all of the required information regarding name, sex, nationality, race, address, place of birth, date of birth, etc.... Additionally it had a series of questions which you had to answer. Among these had to do with a FELONY CONVICTION. If a person had been previously CONVICTED of a FELONY crime then he/she was not eligible to purchase any firearm.

But during the years when the "Domestic Violence " statures began to be enforced to the letter, a little addition was placed in the form of an additional question being placed on the 4473 form. And that question had to do with arrest or conviction of any crime, even a MISDEMEANOR CONVICTION, which contained the elements of a domestic violence crime.

Most Domestic Violence (and the name might vary from state to state) crimes are in fact misdemeanor crimes and it does not necessarily have to be a husband vs wife. In most locations it means ANY FAMILY MEMBER AND ALSO INCLUDED ARE; Room mates, and in many states it even includes just close friends.

Now I am not for a moment trying to say that spousal abuse and family violence are not serious acts but they are still mostly misdemeanor crimes. It is one of the few misdemeanor crimes where a law enforcement officer may make a legal arrest for a misdemeanor crime which DID NOT OCCUR in the officer's presence. And in many jurisdictions it is a requirement to make an on the scene arrest if probable cause exists to believe that some act had occurred which would be a violation of the domestic violence statute.

I can tell you from past experience both before and after the domestic violence laws went into effect that many of the acts which now fall under the domestic violence statutes were mostly arguments and not necessarily physical violence.

Still these particular laws were singled out as acts which could prohibit someone who had perhaps lost their temper on one occasion from being able to purchase any firearm.

The point is that these additions to the firearms statutes were not strong enough to stand on their own merits. No, it had to be attached to a funding bill which was one of those "Must Pass" pieces of legislation.

You can look back over the past 25 or 30 years and see where many of our most intrusive pieces of legislation were passed as Amendments to other pieces of legislation which had absolutely nothing in common with the Amendment.

So based upon that, I always thought that the President should have the Line Item Veto Power. AH! But then I began to realize just how corrupt our elected officials are and pretty much changed my tune.

If our Congressmen or Senators attach some intrusive piece of legislation as an Amendment to a needed piece of legislation the the WHOLE PIECE OF LEGISLATION SHOULD BE VETOED. And it is my feeling that it should be vetoed every time these elected mutts try to pull a fast one on the American people.

And that is pretty much what Lou Dobbs told this guy that a Line Item Veto was unnecessary IF EVERYONE DID WHAT WAS RIGHT. And that is my feeling right at this moment. If these elected overpaid slugs don't do the right thing, DUMP 'EM. And we can start in 2010.

OPRAH:

For the past few days I have watched several film clips of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin being interviewed by the queen of daytime TV, Oprah Winfrey. Since I am not a fan of Oprah I must rely on film clips and audio clips to form my opinion. I had rather be attacked by several dozen rabid baboons than to sit down and actually watch an Oprah show.

Anyway, Oprah in her intelligent and probing interview with Sarah Palin began asking her about her son who was born with Down Syndrome. Governor Palin gave her what I thought was a very good answer regarding her feelings when she was told of the problem.

Then Oprah, in her own condescending manner asked Sarah Palin, "When did you tell THE HUSBAND"? The Husband? Why not "Your Husband"? Why not call him by his name? But no, Oprah said "The Husband". To me this went to show just exactly how little Oprah really cares about people or their families.

You see, the lady I am married to is MY WIFE. Not The Wife. Perhaps I am a bit old fashioned but I really thought that question was an intentional insult to Sarah Palin and the fact that she has always been out front about her family being very important to her.

I remember watching some idiotic TV program one day while I was sitting in the chair at the barber shop. The shop had it on some game program and the host asked this female contestant to tell him about her family. Here is this woman's response: "Well there is me and my two kids and my dog and my cat and my canary and the husband." This struck me as a bit unusual and should have told her husband just exactly where he was in the pecking order in his obviously somewhat dysfunctional family. It also told me that in this woman's eyes, her husband's importance to her was somewhere between her canary and the bag of fertilizer in their garage.

It also told me that to be a contestant on this game show, one must possess the IQ of a cinder block.

Any what should we expect from Oprah? Her overbearing arrogance did, however, land her on the Varmint's List this week.

MORE STUFF:

I don't know if the rest of you have noticed but I have listened to ads for various items on the radio and watched ads on TV for numerous items and while the ad itself is fairly lame what really concerns me is at the end of the ad someone comes on for about 15 seconds and talks so rapidly that you cannot possibly understand what they are saying.

Is this the same as the "Small Print" we are all cautioned to make sure we pay attention to? If so, then I must seriously question the items which feel necessary to have some super rapid talking person provide the listeners with what I can only assume is some type of disclaimer which in short is telling us that we buy this product at our own risk.

Listen carefully the next time you hear one of these ads and see if you feel like you can trust these mutts.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I heard one news report this past week which said that President Obama is showing some real interest in doubling the size of the Peace Corps.

I guess that if we do spend the bucks to do this we can return all of our military personnel and deluge Iraq and Afghanistan with Peace Corps personnel. I'm sure they could create the proper dialogue with these folks and all will be well in the Middle East.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Former Congressman William Jefferson, who was convicted on bribery charges was sentenced to 13 years by a Federal Judge.

OH YEAH!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have had several folks inquire as to why I have added FOX News host Shepard Smith to the Varmint's List. Well, in spite of the apparent popularity of Shep, in my opinion he whines like a tub full of hungry puppies and I have about had it with whiners.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have another FLDS member getting ready to go on trial again in Schleicher County which is immediately to the South of San Angelo. I have spoken with several people who have had dealings with some of the FLDS group and from what I have learned from them, the truth is not really very high on the FLDS list of priorities. People have told me that these members are famous for not telling people their correct name and refusing to show proper identification when required. Of course this is primarily the men according to what I have been told as the women of the group have fairly little contact on matters of any importance and are normally accompanied by at least one male when they have to go somewhere away from their compound.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, that about does it for this week. I did have a pleasant surprise today when one of my old friends from the Hobbs Police Department came through town and gave me a call. After retirement, my friend went to work for a security company working under a U.S. Government contract and served a year or so in Iraq.

He came back and went to Kosovo for another tour. He is now home in Texas and I hope for good. It was really good to see him again.

See ya next week.

Wednesday
November 11th, 2009 POLITICAL CORRECTNESS / DEATH PENALTY


Greetings once again from the Headquarters For West Texas Unsophisticated Voting Conclusion Jumping Gun Loving Jingoistic Conspiratorial Speculators.

FIrst let me wish everyone, particularly former and present members of every branch of the United States Military, a HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY.

I would also like to wish a Happy 234TH Birthday to the United States Marine Corps. Actually yesterday was the actual date of the founding of the Marine Corps.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS:

I believe you all know my strong feelings against political correctness. It is really a shame that a tragedy such as the terrorist attack at Ft. Hood, Texas had to occur to call attention to this absurd madness which has become to be known as "Political Correctness".

I am by no means a military expert and although I have read many e-mail reports and watched and listened to many news and opinion programs I have pretty well made up my mind that our country has gone over the edge in this area of "Political Correctness".

On the day of this terrorist attack which cost the lives of 13 Americans as well as wounding almost 30 more (the count seems to change on the number of wounded), some reporters, some military personnel, and of course every liberal/socialist hack able to voice their opinion, were unable to call this what it was. A terrorist attack committed by a Radical Muslim Terrorist..

Just a short while after the attack I listened to a telephone interview of an individual identified as a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel. This man, who knew the terrorist, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, told the interviewer that Hasan had been observed to have problems even prior to his transfer to Fort Hood. This man said that he had personally called Hasan down on some of his statements and tactics used when counseling personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The evening of the Ft. Hood terrorist murders, Retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters appeared on the Bill O'Reilly program on FOX News. While Bill O'Reilly was taking the low road and not forming an opinion "Until all the facts are in", Colonel Peters called it exactly what it was, "A TERRORIST ATTACK". FOX News contributor Bernard Goldberg also called it a terrorist attack perpetrated by a Radical Muslim Terrorist.

I was unable to finish watching the O'Reilly Factor when also appearing with his two cents on the matter was that great American Patriot, Geraldo Rivera. Of course Geraldo echoed the feelings of most liberals/socialists when he related that the thing which really concerned him most was the negative effect that this incident was going to have on the 4,000,000 other American Muslims. Apparently Geraldo didn't feel much concern for the families of the dead Americans or for the wounded and their families. Perhaps Geraldo's liberal whining attitude is responsible for me occasionally being seized by an urge to knock him on his ass.

Now in all fairness to O'Reilly ( who I imagine is still waiting for all the facts to come to the attention of "The Factor") and that wimpy varmint Geraldo, I must also reflect back on a statement which I heard come from the mouth of Army Chief of Staff, General George W.Casey. Actually he made a couple of statements which I found incredible. The First: I would hate to think that we "dropped the ball" on this. DROPPED THE BALL? Then on the day of the ceremony at Ft. Hood I saw a film clip of General Casey lamenting the possibility that this incident could "Damage the Diversity" of the present military. DAMAGE THE DIVERSITY?

I will say that the remarks made by President Barack Hussein Obama at the ceremony were at best "Generic". Not once did I hear him use the terms terrorist or terrorism. An while I do not know exactly what the "Presidential Medals" look like, those being the medals placed beneath the photographed of each of the slain Americans, but I thought that was a fairly lame presentation. I wish I could have believed that President Obama was actually sincere about this ceremony, but I seem to remember that almost immediately after the terrorist attack occurred, President Barack Hussein Obama cautioned us not to "Jump to any conclusions". My thoughts immediately went to Obama's conclusion jumping example when he immediately took the side of a black professor over the Cambridge Police Department who he accused of "Acting STUPIDLY".

Then of course O'Reilly told us that we must wait until all the facts were known prior to forming an opinion.

And of course General Casey cautioned us against "Speculation".

Well in deference to Obama, O'Reilly and O'Casey, I believe I have a right to form an opinion based upon what we know at the present time. I must tell all three of these people that while I have been to the top of the San Jacinto Monument on at least 7 occasions, I have never jumped. BUT, I still have formed an opinion as to what the results of jumping from the top of that monument would be.

Some friends of mine and I went hunting for Russian Wild Boar several years back. Each of us got a wild boar. Three of them weighed over 300 pounds and two of them were between 250 - 300 pounds. They were incredibly fast, they all had large tusks and when they charged us, I didn't have all the facts at my disposal as to what would be the results of not shooting them. HOWEVER, I had enough to know that shooting them was the proper action to take.

Today, I have been watching, hearing and reading all kinds of things regarding this Nidal Malik Hasan investigation and in my humble opinion it looks like we perhaps might have "The Blame Game" in full session. I would imagine that we will have many agencies, civilian and military, attempting to dodge any blame and re-directing the blame to anyone who will hold still for it.

I don't care who "DROPPED THE BALL", but it is fairly obvious that someone damn sure did. And I submit that the ball needs to be picked up and put away securely and at the same time, kick political correctness right in the ass and out the door. I am not quite sure what my attitude would be if I were a present member of our military. But I imagine that I would be wanting some straight answers and pretty damn quick.

I also have seen several interviews with the attorney representing the terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan. Of course this attorney says that he is not sure that Hasan can receive a fair trial in the Ft. Hood area.

I do not know but I would almost believe that since this occurred on a military base and the victims were members of the U.S. Military and the terrorist defendant was also a member of the U.S. Military that he would be tried in a Military Court. BUT if that is not the case then I imagine that he could be transferred to almost any county in the State of Texas (Other than Travis or Harris: For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco those are the counties of Austin and Houston). Move it to, shall we say, Comanche County. I'm sure he would receive the trial he deserved in that good city of Comanche, Texas.

And before I forget I have heard a couple of interviews with obvious liberals/socialists on different radio stations, where these astute folks have said that the reason for this attack at Ft. Hood was: "America's love for guns". For some unknown reason I am overcome with an uncontrollable urge to choke these turds until their eyes bug out. That would be immediately after I kick Geraldo in the backside.

I also heard one interview with a doctor who had attended schools with Nidal Malik Hasan. This man said that he had heard Hasan make statements that "Sharia Law" took precedence over the United States Constitution.

So, in spite of the wishes of President Barack Hussein Obama, General Casey and Bill O'Reilly, I will SPECULATE and JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. I leave this subject with this final thought: While I do not possess enough evidence against Major Nidal Malik Hasan to convict him "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt", I damn sure have enough PROBABLE CAUSE to form an opinion that he is a terrorist and he committed a terrorist attack and that I further don't give the first damn about the DIVERSITY of the military.

What I do care about is that we have dedicated men and women who are members of our military and further that they have the training and equipment and LEADERSHIP to perform their duties with the support of the American people AND our elected officials. AND they should be able to do their duty and support the Constitution of the United States without fear of retribution for violating some idiotic political correctness guideline.

STUFF:

In listening to all this bellowing, whining, and lying regarding the new Universal Health Care ala Pelosi, one thing which jumped out at me was the fact that "Pre-Existing Conditions" would not be considered in the act of insuring anyone. Now I would like a show of hands of everyone who believes that load-o-crap. If this becomes the norm then why should anyone buy insurance of any kind until you need it or if you subscribe to the idiotic Pelosi bill, after you need it.

If this is the case then wait until a family member dies and then purchase a life insurance policy on them. Or if you decide to bet on a sporting event, wait until you know the outcome prior to placing your bet. Makes perfect sense to me.

As I understand it, and you cannot get the same answer from any of the democrat mutts, the length of this Health Care Legislation passed a couple of days back by the House of Representatives was 1,993 pages. I looked at a copy of War And Peace and it was about 1400 pages in length; My Oxford Large Print Dictionary and Thesaurus is 1272 pages; I have a book titled; Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Of The Bible/Dictionary Of The Hebrew Bible/Dictionary Of The Greek Testament with the total pages being 1,323. I could go on but the point is, NONE of the people who voted to pass this garbage legislation actually read the bill.

The Senate needs to kill this absurd bill despite the badgering of President Barack Hussein Obama AND former President Bill Clinton.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good news! D.C. sniper, John Allen Muhammud was executed in Virginia. Virginia is doing plenty good this month. KIcked out the Democrat Governor and executed a mass murderer.

Let's also hear it for Texas. Texas also executed a Houston murderer and also a Schleicher County jury convicted FLDS mutt Raymond Merrill Jessop on a sexual abuse charge against his ninth wife (That would be his ninth wife while still being married to eight others). Good ol' Raymond was sentenced to 10 years and fined $8,000.00

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw a film clip of Nancy Pelosi in 2003 whining about being forced to vote on legislation which she HAD NOT HAD TIME TO READ. Guess it just all depends on who is pushing the legislation, huh Bug-Eye?

Then she recently said that she hoped that the Congress had a bill in time for it to be a Christmas Present to the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Tell you what Nancy. Stuff the bill and just give us back our country.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yesterday I received a letter through the U.S. Mail. The card said: "The U.S. Congress has made available up to $20,000 in Federal Home Improvement Program funds. Just complete the enclosed form". Well the form would have been almost impossible to fill out since I shredded it. So I did the next best thing and ran the letter through the shredder.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I heard one news report saying that this new House Health Care Bill had some language in it which would require restaurants of a certain size to publish the calories and food value information on their menu.

Let me share this thought with you, when I get the urge to have a Chili-Cheese-Dog, I don't give a damn about the calories OR the food value. Same goes with a Pack Saddle Double Meat Cheese Burger (Which incidentally might be the best on the planet).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I guess I had better get down the road and get back to loving my firearms. I am pretty fickle, I guess. I love a different firearm each and every day. I just can't seem to make up my mind. Wonder if the liberals/socialists hate firearms with the same degree of passion that I love mine?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I also understand that without any fanfare or media coverage, former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush made a visit to Fort Hood. A bit different from our present resident of the White House.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will see you all next week. But if this week has not shown the entire country just exactly how idiotic Political Correctness is and what harm it causes when observed as the rule rather than the exception. then you are unable to fathom the simplest concepts of right and wrong.

I know we all know but the rest better catch on and pretty damn quick. The power in this federal government must change or we are all done.

And let me leave you with this final thought: The only thing which allows Political Correctness to stay alive is FEAR.

Later

Wednesday
November 4th, 2009 ELECTION / MODERATE / PELOSI

Greetings from the West Texas Headquarters For The Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Jingoistic Gun Owning Unsophisticated Voters. I heard a Democrat hack speaking this morning about the voters in Virginia and New Jersey and he said that the "Sophisticated Voters" just didn't turn out. Looks like the "Unsophisticated Voters" made up for it by turning out in pretty good numbers.

ELECTION:

Here in Texas, just as in the rest of the country, yesterday was election day. We didn't have nearly the coverage on our election as did Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. I would first of all like to congratulate the "Unsophisticated Voters" of Virginia and New Jersey for kicking out some real mutts in their respective Gubernatorial races, (For those sophisticated folks presently residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would be the races for Governor of those two states). About a hour ago I was watching FOX News and really got caught up in the excitement of awaiting the views on the elections by former Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, who is also a "Yellow Dog" Democrat. It was sort of like awaiting Louis Farrakhan's views on Caucasian Christians. You probably were already aware of her views and had already made up your mind that your opinion on her views were sort of like Rhett Butler's opinion of Scarlet's wishes at the end of "Gone With The Wind"; "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn".

And that is precisely how much I care about Geraldine Ferraro's thoughts. Anyone with a brain could see that Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party were counting on Democrat victories in both New Jersey and Virginia. Obama made FIVE recent trips to the state of New Jersey and THREE to the state of Virginia with the hopes of garnering some support for the two incumbents. Apparently the unsophisticated voters of both those states weren't buying Obama's brand of political pandering. Could it be that perhaps the world's most articulate and intelligent human is less than Godlike after all?

Our election here in San Angelo was much milder. We did have 11 Constitutional Amendments (And for those of you currently being held hostage in the Gulag of Austin, that would be the TEXAS CONSTITUTION). Yes, our state just as the other 49 United States does have its own Constitution. Most of our Constitutional Amendments dealt with eminent domain and taxing authority. I know all of the Amendments passed here in Tom Green County but I have not heard yet how they did state wide. We also had to elect a Mayor here to replace our previous Mayor who days after being re-elected announced that he was running off to Mexico with his "Significant Other" who happened to be another dude who was a Mexican Citizen.

Anyway there were seven candidates for this job and since no candidate got the 1 vote over 50%, so there will be a runoff election next month. Our Mayor's position pays a whopping $50 per month and the Mayor presides over council meetings and signs proclamations and ordinances and it is basically a part-time job with a big title and very little power. What makes me wonder about all of the candidates is why anyone would spend good money seeking this position.

Still on the subject of the election, the 23rd Congressional District in New York had a pretty interesting race in which there were three persons running, The Democrat Candidate, Bill Owens; The Republican Candidate, Dede Scozaffava; and The Conservative Party Candidate, Doug Hoffman. The unusual thing about this race, as I understand it, was that the Democrat Candidate was actually not as liberal as the Republican Candidate, Dede Scozaffava.

Who is Dede Scozaffava, you ask? As a New York Assembly woman, she voted to impose binding arbitration on public employees, stripping workers of the right to vote on their own contracts. She also voted for Card Check, forced unionism bill, S. B. 560 which is pending before Congress right now. This bill would eliminate the secret ballot, force workers to accept mandatory binding arbitration, and give broad new power over workers to Big Labor. How this squack got to be the Republican nominee is beyond comprehension. Of course at the very last moment, she removed herself from the race for the seat as the U.S. Representative for New York's 23rd Congressional District. But of course that is not the end of the story. SHE THREW HER SUPPORT TO THE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE, Bill Owens, but her name was already on the ballot so there it remained. The Conservative Party Candidate was not a professional politician. He was an accountant and from all indications was a true conservative whereas Mrs. Scozaffava was not.

Now, here is something else about this particular race and the candidacy of Mrs. Scozaffava. Who endorsed her candidacy? Why none other than former Republican House Speaker NEWT GINGRICH. Here lately I have received a whole bunch of e-mails containing a quote from NEWT GINGRICH. I have also noticed that while NEWT talks a really good game, he rarely follows through with any of his ideas. So let's look at NEWT on this particular endorsement:

NEWT GINGRICH has been claiming that the fight against Card Check is one of the biggest issues for his group, American Solutions. If my memory is correct, and I am sure that it is, I seem to remember receiving some mail from American Solutions in which NEWT GINGRICH was putting the touch on me for a donation to his organization.

In short, it appears to me that NEWT GINGRICH is more about NEWT GINGRICH than he is about our country. Remind you of anyone else currently in power? And just so there is no doubt about what my position is on NEWT and his organization, I think it is unforgivable for someone who is supposed to be so politically astute as NEWT, to support an obvious far left candidate REGARDLESS OF PARTY AFFILIATION. I believe that Mr. Gingrich is more interested in feathering his own nest than doing what is right. Perhaps NEWT should team up with Geraldine Ferraro and they could have their own political opinion program on, MSNBC perhaps. Anyway, Newt Gingrich has lost me and I must really question the validity of listening to any of these former politicians. Newt seems to talk a good game but his actual play leaves something to be desired.

Does the phrase "Symbolism over substance" seem to fit?

I also read where this Scozaffava squack also got the endorsement of the RNC and ACORN. Looks like ACORN were the only ones who knew what they were really doing. But I could be wrong.

MODERATE:

Over the past couple of years we have heard the terms "MODERATE" and "INDEPENDENT" and "CENTRIST" thrown around quite a bit in political discussions. As you all know that my opinion of the term moderate is not one of endearment in my eyes. I am also beginning to have the same opinion of the term centrist. According to my Websters' Dictionary here are the definitions of these above mentioned words:

MODERATE - mild, calm, avoiding extremes, of medium quality, one holding moderate opinions

CENTRIST - a person with moderate political opinions

INDEPENDENT - free from the influence or control of others, self governing, self-reliant, not adhering to any political party, not depending on another for financial support, one who is independent in thinking or action

So as you can see there is little difference in the words moderate and centrist. But there is quite a difference in those two words and the word independent.

As I have stated in the past, the last time I was really moderate on anything was when I was probably about 8 or 9 years old and this question was posed to me: Who would win in a fight? Superman, Captain Marvel, or Batman.

I thought on this for a moment and since I liked all three of the super heroes, I immediately ruled out Batman. While Batman had some really cool tools and equipment, he possessed no super powers.

Then I thought that both Superman and Captain Marvel both had super powers BUT Captain Marvel had an alter ego in the form of Billy Batson, who in order to become Captain Marvel had to utter the word, SHAZAM, and then he would be transformed into Captain Marvel.


AH! But Superman, even in disguise as mild mannered reporter, Clark Kent, still possessed his super powers. So my moderate thinking became not so moderate in a pretty short time.

And remember the old saying, the only thing you find in the middle of the road are yellow stripes and dead armadillos. Or if you straddle a fence long enough you will end up with a sharp stake up your backside.

So, in short, I am getting pretty sick of O'Reilly and a whole bunch of the other news varmints telling us that the American people are really searching for a "Centrist" or a "Moderate", when in reality we are looking for a candidate and elected officials who are more "Independent" in their thoughts and actions. We don't want someone who is extreme to either side of the political spectrum but I sure believe that most independents have brains enough to know that you cannot borrow or tax your way out of financial problems. And I believe that most conservatives in fact are more independent in their thinking than any and all "Centrists", "Moderates" and "Liberals"

PELOSI:

On Thursday, October 29, 2009 I listened briefly to Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi when she uttered this lie: "We have listened to the American People". A short while later the House came out with a 1,990 page healthcare bill.

Steny Hoyer praised the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

The Speaker of the House then praised House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer.

Then we were assured that this legislation was "Open and Above Board".

WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!!!

What the House Speaker and the House Majority Leader neglected to tell us was that:

* The cost of this legislation was $1.3 TRILLION, or about $500 million per page.

* The bill would be financed through massive debt and tax hikes

* There were 13 new ways to raise taxes

* Americans would be forced to purchase this health insurance, whether they wanted to or not.

* Increase insurance premiums and decrease access to health care.

* Create 111 NEW FEDERAL BUREAUCRACIES

* Cost Texas 15,000 jobs by having the government shut down doctor-owned hospitals

Either later that night or maybe the next day I was watching an interview with a Democrat Congressman. I got in after the interview started and didn't see them flash his name. Anyway, this guy is doing his best to make chicken shit taste like chicken salad and he made this statement: Oh, we know the cost will increase, BUT, it just won't increase as fast as it would without this legislation.

HEY!!! Haven't they been telling us that the cost of health insurance would actually go down under this government run system?

These people cannot remember from one day to the next which lies they have told nor to whom they have been told.

Once again, prior to 1998 I personally had not been troubled with many medical bills for myself. But in 1998 I had some major surgery and if memory serves me correctly my medical expenses for this particular problem including one week in Methodist Hospital in Lubbock, Texas were over $40,000, Then in 2001, I spent one week in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas. Since that time I have had two eye surgeries and my wife has had three eye surgeries.

Now up until that time, I had paid health care premiums since 1958. And with the exception of the birth of our daughter and a couple of trips for my wife to a hospital we were fortunate to not have a whole bunch of medical expenses. The insurance we had at the time was a very high deductible with most of the insurance covering only major medical expenses. So from 1958 until the 1990's we paid most of our medical costs but the health care insurance did kick in on some major expenses after our deductible had been met. Since 1997, I have been out about $1,000 expense out of my pocket. The rest has been paid by my insurance company. You know, that obscene profit seeking insurance company. You know, the insurance company we are not to trust but rather trust a socialist president who has lied to us at every turn, and a Congress who has equaled him on the truth-o-meter.

Just perhaps the election results from yesterday will send a message that even these idiots can understand, keeping in mind that they all act as if they possessed a brain roughly the size of an un-soaked black eyed pea. (Now for those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts, that is damn small).

STUFF:

As I sit here sounding off and feeling like I am preaching to the choir, I am looking at a photograph which was sent to us by our daughter last evening. It is a photograph of a really good looking, blond haired, 12 year old young man who is our next to youngest grandson. The handsome young man is holding a rifle in the photograph.

Also in this photograph is a really nice 6 X 5 bull elk. The elk of course is dead. I will not mention the location of this elk shooting for fear that the PETA police will be after us all. This was a really proud young man when he called his ol' Grandpa last night.

He gave me a rundown of the hunt and the only thing I was unhappy about was that I was not with them. I was with our daughter when she shot her first white-tail deer when she was 8 or 9. I was also with my oldest grandson when he shot his first mule deer when he was about 12. Of course, my daughter and her family eat quite a bit of wild game on their regular diet and it is way better than most people could imagine.

My son-in-law also took some photographs of an absolute huge elk herd. He said that he lost count of the bulls in the herd at about 86. And of course the cows way outnumbered the bulls. I really would loved to have seen an elk herd that large. Probably a once in a lifetime opportunity.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last week we were all able to see just how far Barack Hussein Obama will go to promote his absolute favorite subject.......... HIMSELF.

At a military base near Washington, D.C. the bodies of military personnel killed in Afghanistan were being flown in. Barack Hussein Obama attended this ceremony. I don't care what the political persuasion of a president is if he is honoring our troops. But what does grate on my nerves a bit is that the media was notified of this event and the whole thing turned into a photo op for Obama. I really do wish I could look at it in a different light but I can't. I have read and heard about the many times that President George W. Bush met the incoming aircraft with the coffins of the deceased men/women of our armed forces. Funny thing is that you heard about it much later and I cannot remember ever seeing him use this as a political move.

_________________________________________________________________________

I will leave until next week with this quote and when you think of the stuff being pulled by ACORN in league with the Obama administration, you need to think of this short quote:

"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."..... JOSEPH STALIN

Keep that quote in mind.

Wednesday
October 28th, 2009 PROFITS / PAY / LEGISLATION

WEDNESDAY - OCTOBER 28, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Center For Jingoistic Anti-Socialist Hate Spreading Conspiratorial Smear Merchants. That should just about cover it all, at least for the Socialist vermin who are presently running our national government.

PROFITS:

For the past several weeks we have been subjected to far left Democrat hacks tell us about the "Obscene Profits" being raked in by the health insurance industry. According to Barack Hussein Obama and the snapping mongrels who follow him around, the federal government is the only thing which stands between the average American citizen and total chaos.

Funny thing though, I listened to reports on several radio programs this week which reported that the Associated Press, who up until this time have pretty much been in the tank for the world's most intelligent and articulate human and the Democrat Party, and their report was directed at the profit margin of a number of industries in the United States. According to the reports the Health Insurance Industry was presently operating at a 2% margin of profit. The report conducted by a PRO-OBAMA organization had the Health Insurance Industry rated somewhere around 35th place in the nations top 50 Fortune 500 rated industries.

In comparison the Rail Road Industry operated at a 13% margin of profit. Let's see now, 2% is less than 12%, right? So, where do the reports of "Obscene Profits" come from. Oh, yeah. They come from the same government who tries to make us believe that this administration has either created or saved a certain number of jobs. So, for those of you residing in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" I am saying that they simply MAKE THE FIGURES UP. Or if you really want to call a spade a spade, they are LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Also one must keep this in mind, the Rail Road Industry has not shown a profit in something like 40 years WITHOUT FEDERAL FUNDS IN THE FORM OF SUBSIDIES. After all, one can't expect the Rail Road industry to do something like make it on its own, can we? That would mean that we also expect this wind turbine stuff to actually make it without government funds.

In the long run, I trust my private physicians AND my health insurance provider way, way, way ahead of this federal government.

PAY:

Most of my adult life, I spent working for the public for either a city or county government. I never fooled myself into believing that my pay came from any place other than tax dollars. I realized from the start that my pay would probably not equal that of a similar position in the private sector. But what made up for the lower pay was, pretty good benefits in the form of insurance, sick leave, vacation time, and a better than average retirement package.

I realize that tax dollars from the public are used by governments at every level to provide police and fire protection; water; education; infrastructure, etc.... I also realize that the pay of public employees is in many locations controlled by elected officials and on some occasions by a vote by the public. These are all acceptable.

What is NOT ACCEPTABLE to me, and to many others, is having some government hack, such as a PAY CZAR, decide on the salary and benefits of people in the private sector. Now while I will freely admit that the salaries of many top executives is pretty much over the top on the high side, the idea of some appointed hack having ANYTHING AT ALL to say about the compensation of executives in private industry is just plain WRONG. While I do not believe that some CEO of one of the large corporations deserves some year end bonus of 40 or 50 million dollars, and I also believe that the pay scale of professional athletes and entertainers is pretty much out of line, I DO NOT believe that some government appointee should have any say at all in the matter. This type of government interference allows the federal government to get their foot into the door. They then will tell us that this is just a temporary situation and that it will all cease just as soon as matters smooth out. The initial reports are that this Pay Czar is prepared to cut the pay of certain executives between 50 and 90 percent, and much of their pay will be in stock.

I would like a show of hands of all those who believe that these government mutts will be willing to give up this power without a huge battle. Remember, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. So if you feel comfortable in letting some mob mentality Chicago varmint control your lives, so be it. I choose not to sit idly by and let this happen.

Also, if they get away with this, when and where does it cease?

LEGISLATION:

In this morning's edition of the (Sub) Standard Times, one of the sections had a chart showing the comparison in the three primary health care bills. These three were: Senate Health Care; Senate Finance Health Care; and House Health Care.

Now my first question is, why does the Senate have TWO (2) Dos, health care packages while the House only has ONE (1) Uno? Seems to me like the House with 435 members should be allowed at least an equal number of health care bills as the Senate with 100 members. Is it that Harry Reid is smarter than Nancy Pelosi? No, Harry Reid isn't smarter than anyone I can think of. Is it that Harry Reid is a bigger liar than Nancy Pelosi? Nope, impossible. Perhaps this is all done to simply confuse us. Yep, I think that's it. Now just to show you what I am talking about, here are some partial explanations from various descriptions of the three bills and I am sure after reading these we will all be clear on what we need to know:

SENATE - Requires individuals to get health coverage - Requires employers to cover or pay fee; SENATE FINANCE - Requires most citizens and legal residents to get coverage - Employers cover OR pay fee. HOUSE - Requires individuals to be covered - Employers cover or pay fee to a trust fund, with some small firms left out.

QUESTION: What happens if you are unemployed, retired, or do contract labor?

SENATE - Estimate cost - $615 Billion; SENATE FINANCE -$829 Billion; HOUSE -1.5 TRILLION.

Does one notice a bit of disparity in the cost of these three proposals? WHY?

THEN WE COME TO A SECTION CALLED BENEFITS:

SENATE: All health plans would have to offer at least the benefits ordered by MEDICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL. Three benefit tiers cover 76 -93 percent of costs.

SENATE FINANCE: All plans cover basic benefits - primary care, hospitalization and primary care. There would be 4 levels of coverage covering 65 - 90 percent of costs.

HOUSE: Experts recommend a basic package that would cover about 70 percent of costs; out of pocket limit of $5,000/$10,000 individual/family; no annual or lifetime limits; 4 levels of benefits.

The main thing that concerns me with these three descriptions is that none of them are explained well AND just please tell me what is this MEDICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL?

And keep this in mind; For months we have all heard about the infamous PUBLIC OPTION. Then they started calling it the SINGLE PAYER plan. Then in the past few days we have heard from those two masters of persuasion, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi these two terms: COMPETITIVE OPTION and CONSUMER OPTION. All either one of these rocket scientists have done is substitute the words Competitive and Consumer for Public. It is all the same!

So we are not to trust the people in the health care insurance industry BUT we are to put faith in legislation so pitifully explained by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi? I'd rather be bitten by a mad cow than put any faith in any plan endorsed by these two mutts.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last evening I received a call from a good friend who is the brother of a man with whom I worked at the Houston Police Department from 1958 - 1970. His name was Donald Williams. Donald passed away yesterday in a San Antonio hospital. I knew that he was in the hospital and I was getting ready to add him to our prayer list but did not get the opportunity. My sympathy goes out to the Williams family.

I also received a call that Pat Murphy who has been on our prayer list also passed away yesterday. Her husband James passed away earlier this year. They were no blood relation to me but we do share some common grand children and great grand children.

PRAYER LIST:

Tony Knott, Ann Fraley, Tony Aguilar, Julio Mirales - HOBBS,NM; Rosa Villareal - LOVINGTON,NM; Ella Dunlop, Frank Connolly - SAN ANTONIO,TX; Craig Dickson - HOUSTON,TX; George Brogdon - MIDWAY,TX; Irma & L.T.

This week we have two very special children who need our prayers. They are: Ashtyn Wages (8 months old), ICU Children's Hospital - DALLAS,TX. Ashtyn is suffering from a rare illness and is having to undergo treatment in a very weakened condition; John -Paul Tupaz (6 weeks old) ICU Texas Christian Hospital - HOUSTON,TX. John-Paul will undergo open heart surgery to repair damage. These two young ones really do need all of our prayers as do their families.

I can remember over 25 years ago when our oldest grandson who was born in Gunnison,CO had to be airlifted to a hospital in Denver. He was spared and has grown up to be a very strong young man. But I will never forget how I felt when our daughter called us up to notify us of his birth and the emergency problem facing him. Prayer helped us and him through those times. Let us really keep these two young ones in our thoughts and prayers, as well as their families.

QUOTES:

"President Obama has already floated the idea of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries........ We already have local police forces all across the country and military forces for national defense, as well as the FBI for federal crimes and the National Guard for local emergencies. What would be the role of a national police force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown shirts of dictators than like anything American."................. THOMAS SOWELL

Regarding the Obama Czar appointees: "Those who say that the Obama administration should have investigated those people more thoroughly before appointing them are missing the point completely. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn't know what such people were like, when he has been associating with precisely those kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House?"......................... THOMAS SOWELL

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."... THOMAS JEFFERSON

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."........... THOMAS JEFFERSON

TIMES; L.A. TIMES; SOUTHER POVERTY LAW CENTER; MOVEON.ORG;

MORE STUFF:

A few of weeks back I was watching a college in which Oklahoma State was one of the teams playing. The announcers said that prior to the game, Oklahoma State wide receiver and kick return specialist, Des Bryant, went over to the opposing team's sideline and approached the opponent's defensive coordinator and said, "Coach, I'm your worst nightmare. I'm Des Bryant." Evidently the announcers found this to be cute and acceptable behavior. It sounded to me as if perhaps the defensive coordinator should either have told Des Bryant that his team had cut better receivers than him or should maybe have just said, "Des who?"

The point is, arrogance is not funny, nor cute. Merely obnoxious. Funny thing is, that a couple of weeks ago, Des Bryant was SUSPENDED from the Oklahoma State football game for evidently lying to NCAA Investigators regarding a possible rules violation. So apparently THE TRUTH appears to be the "Worst Nightmare" for Des Bryant.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I watched a news clip of Utah Senator Orin Hatch calling for President Barack Hussein Obama to get the government involved in the BCS rankings. (For those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts, that is the Bowl Championship Series). For some who may not remember, the University of Utah went undefeated last year and did NOT get into the BCS Championship game. Two teams (Florida and Oklahoma) each with one loss played in the championship game. Well one of them did anyhow.

My opinion is that the BCS rankings are screwed up enough already. Why on God's green earth would we want Barack Obama or Congress or any federal official involved in something which is already imperfect and will remain so until they figure out a way to have a playoff system.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Still in the sports arena, Marcus Jordan, son of basketball star Michael Jordan, has REFUSED to wear Adidas shoes. He plays for the University of Central Florida and even though the UCF has a CONTRACT with Adidas that their shoes will be worn by UCF athletes in ALL SPORTS. Sounds to me as if perhaps Marcus should perhaps join Des Bryant in sitting out this basketball season. Looks to me as if the coach might consider him NOT PLAYING for UCF.

____________________________________________________________________________

Obama vs FOX News. Has the world's most articulate and intelligent human been bitten by a rabid monkey? Let me see if I have this straight:

FOX News is the #1 ranked cable news channel

FOX News opinion shows are also ranked #1

One must wonder just exactly which one of the Obama brain surgeons advised him to go to war with FOX. Probably the same ones who convinced him that he and the First Lady should go to Europe and make a personal plea for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Actually all he has succeeded in doing was to piss off the other news agencies who have been a bit less kind to him than they were prior to the battle with FOX News.

Even some of the networks have sided with FOX.

Way to go Barack. Keep listening to Rahm and those other incompetent hacks. They will yes you right out of office. Exceptional strategy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All right, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I know this will really have a negative effect on your day.

RAPPER, Li'l Wayne is facing jail time on a weapons charge. I am just not sure that those of us in the RAP Community are going to be able to function at our normal high level with Li'l Wayne in the pound.

Thank God we have not received any negative reports on Li'l Kim or Li'l Bow Wow. And I am sure that the residents of Hobbs, New Mexico are relieved that "Big Baby" was not named in any negative report.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just when you thought that you had heard it all, something pops up which convinces me beyond all doubt that many governments and organizations possess the collective I.Q.s of an intoxicated marmot.

I read an article stating that in 2005, the British Medical Journal called for a BAN on "Pointed Kitchen Knives" throughout the country.

The latest absurd item to be addressed is the "Pint Glass". The move is to replace the traditional "Pint Glass" which officials say can be used as a weapon. The proposed new design will incorporate shatterproof plastics which would change the feel and experience the pub customers currently desire.

All I can say is "Beam Me Up Scotty".

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me leave you with this final observation. Every day we are hearing more news of members of our brave military losing their lives in Afghanistan. The military leaders have made a request for more troops and equipment in that country.

President Barack Hussein Obama evidently feels that bickering with FOX News and Talk Radio and fund raising and campaigning for Democrat candidates is more important than the needs of our military. I don't know what strategy is right as I have never been to Afghanistan, but I'll wager that it would differ considerably from the observations of John Kerry who is suddenly an expert in this field.

I strongly imagine that the "Rules of Engagement" currently imposed on our military would leave much to be desired.

Let us keep these heroic men and women and their families in our daily prayers.

See ya next week

October 21st, 2009 DETROIT / NFL / REBATE

WEDNESDAY - OCTOBER 21, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Branch Of The Jingoistic Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Attack Machine.

NFL:

Unless you have been marooned on an uncharted desert island this past week, you have heard about the incident in which Rush Limbaugh was a member of an investment group who were planning on purchasing the St. Louis Rams NFL Franchise. (For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, YES, that is the same Rams football team that had been located in Los Angeles for many years).

As I understand the incident, Rush Limbaugh was approached by a group of investors who wanted him to join them in the purchase of the St. Louis Rams NFL franchise. According to Mr. Limbaugh, he was interested in being a part of the group. The word leaked that Rush Limbaugh was part of this investment group interested in purchasing the Rams and that was all it took. The usual race baiters, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson began to whine their normal tune. Then the NFL Players Representative began to take up the whine. Then liberals from every corner of the United States began to join in.

They kept up such a shrill whine that the head of the investment group went to Mr. Limbaugh and asked him to take himself out of the group. To his credit, Rush Limbaugh politely told them to stuff it and if they wanted him out, they would have to go public and fire him. This of course is exactly what they did. I guess most people let it drop right there but I was a bit curious as to why the group was so hot to trot to drop Mr. Limbaugh. After all, when he was first approached with the investment proposition, Mr. Limbaugh made the group aware that he was a prominent figure and that many liberals in high positions would more than likely burst into flames when it went public. Rush Limbaugh said that the head of the investment group assured him that this would not change a thing and that they were solid behind him.

So, why did the group change their mind? I guess there could be a myriad of reasons but I believe that when the NFL learned the names of the investors and heard the whining of the normal race baiters that the league itself choked. I truly believe that pressure was put on the investment group to drop Rush Limbaugh from their midst.

Now in the large scheme of life on this planet, Rush Limbaugh not being a minority owner of an NFL franchise is not really a pivotal moment in any of our lives. But what does concern me is that a bunch of mutts like Sharpton, Jackson and God only knows who else, could exert enough pressure to kill an investment opportunity for someone who obviously had the money and the desire to make a business purchase.

Now this question must be asked: At what point in time will people wake up and stop giving in to Jackson and Sharpton and others of their ilk?

Yes, I know all about Rush Limbaugh's comment when he worked on an ESPN pre-game NFL show. I was watching the program when the subject of Donovan McNabb came up and the commentators were discussing McNabb's real value to the Philadelphia Eagles football team. Rush made the observation that he was not convinced that McNabb's abilities were all that they were cracked up to be, and that much of the discussion in the media was due to the media's desire to have a black quarterback succeed in the NFL. Now while I might question the need to point this matter out, I did not consider it a racial attack.

Of course ESPN panicked and Limbaugh was removed from the program. And in fact a black quarterback, Warren Moon, had already been very successful in Canada and the NFL. I believe that Warren Moon is still in the top five passers insofar as total passing yards in the entire league.

But the real point is that it appears as if a bunch of people caved in big time and in fact prevented Rush Limbaugh from even having the opportunity to do something of a business nature which he obviously wanted the chance to do.

And in my book the ones who looked really bad in this whole deal are: The investment group; The NFL Players Representative; The NFL; and of course bringing up the tail end, which is where they belong, are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Of course I have no proof that the National Football League are in fact a part of the problem but they were awfully silent on the matter. BUT, just as I have no solid proof of the NFL involvement, I have at least as much as does our President, Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) when he spouts off about all the jobs his administration has saved.

Someone please tell me how one goes about coming up with a nebulous figure, like 250,000 jobs saved? Let's see now; This week I purchased a gallon of milk, so I must have saved some dairy jobs; I also purchased some bananas, so I must have saved some plantation job; I also paid my water bill, so I must have saved some utility related jobs; I also cashed a check, so I must have pulled the banking industry out of the pit and no telling how many jobs I saved there; I also purchased gasoline, bread, beans, peas, and it goes on.

Anyway, the NFL has lost a long time supporter. I could care less about what goes on with them from this point on. Particularly when there is great college football and even greater Texas High School Football. Get this score in a Texas Six Man Football game: Trent (Gorillas) 132 - - Novice (Hornets) 86. How would you like to score 86 points and get beat?

DETROIT:

Last week I wrote something regarding the Detroit Public School system. I got an e-mail which called to my attention that the Detroit School System has something like $500,000,000 earmarked for them out of the "Stimulus Package". The person who wrote me the information pointed out that this organization was over $200,000,000 in debt and that this system only graduates approximately 37% of its high school seniors.

Why is it that our elected officials continue to funnel taxpayer dollars to organizations which are abject failures?

REBATE:

Last week I was listening to the radio and during one of the news breaks I heard one of the commentators talking about how easy it was to get a home loan and that first time home-buyers needed to get on a stick if they were going to receive their $8,000 rebate check from the federal government.

Let me make sure I have this right. There is no money available to give Social Security recipients their normal COLA (For those of you sentenced to the Gulag of Austin, that is Cost Of Living Adjustment). They tell us that the cost of living has not increased and there are no funds available but yet Congress can give themselves a raise AND as I understand it the cost of Medicare will increase. Atop that, the cost of gasoline is back on the rise as is the cost of food and energy costs.

But the government has enough funds to give first time home buyers a rebate check for $8,000. Funny thing is that when we purchase our first home in 1959, we had to come up with 10% down payment. When we purchased our second home in 1973 we had to come up with 10% down. When we purchased the home in which we are now living I actually paid about 35% down. There are advertisements that there are now loans available where you can finance 97.5% of the APPRAISED VALUE and I have seen some signs which required NO DOWN PAYMENT. I guess the lending institutions didn't learn a damn thing over the past couple of years.

MISCELLANEOUS:

Last Sunday morning I was listening to a local radio station which on Sundays is an NPR broadcast. (For those residents of the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts, NPR is National Public Radio) Many of the very liberal commentators which we see on many of the Cable TV News shows are regulars on NPR. I do not remember the name of this lady who was the host of the show but she had as her guest an expert in reptiles. And the main subject of the program dealt with the fact that "Giant" snakes are invading our Southern states. Of course the broad who was hosting the show was at a loss as to how giant snakes could possibly find their way into the wilds of our Southern states.

So her expert guest told her that most of them at one time were pets which grew too big to be kept and they were taken to remote areas and released. Then of course this woman, who apparently had the I.Q. of a jar of doe urine, asked the question if snakes made good pets. Of course the expert told this rocket scientist that actually, snakes were very interesting animals and we could learn a lot from them.

I thought to myself, just what could I learn from a snake?

I could learn how to eat rodents and birds and how to swallow them whole.

I could learn to crawl on my belly.

I could learn to shed my skin several times per year.

I could learn how to wrap myself around another creature and squeeze the life from it.

Then the thought crossed my mind that just perhaps this expert was as goofy as the hostess.

He did bring out the fact that originally the island of Guam had no snakes but there were snakes brought there via boat and that one of them was a nocturnal tree snake which had reproduced and pretty well wiped out the tree nesting bird population on Guam since the birds had never been forced to deal with nocturnal reptiles in the past. That made sense.


THEN, the hostess asked him a question as to why these giant snakes were confined to the Southern states and the expert told her that it was mainly due to warmer and more tropical conditions BUT THAT GLOBAL WARMING MIGHT TAKE CARE OF THAT and the giant snakes could begin to move farther North.

At this point I changed stations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every morning when I have read the newspaper, I read the comic page. Now I have this procedure down to a science. Things must be read in order so here is how I read them:

Wizard of Id - top right column

Non Sequitur - right below B.C.

Beetle Bailey - left column

Family Circus and Dennis the Menace - right column, side by side

Blondie - right column, third from bottom

Dilbert - bottom right column

Hagar the Horrible - bottom left column

B.C. - left column right above Hagar

Get Fuzzy - left column right above B.C.

That is it, I could care less about the rest.

But yesterday morning while going from Blondie to Dilbert, I noticed Obama's name in one of the strips. One which I never read. It is LuAnn and I don't even know what the story line is but in yesterday's paper there were three girls talking about volunteering and one of them said that President Obama would be pleased or something of that nature. Then this morning once again Obama's name was mentioned in this strip. Again, this is not a comic on my reading list but I just wondered if the comic strip industry was getting ready to bombard us like they do the school children in many districts. I have always found Doonesbury pretty offensive since they were so political but I enjoy reading the comics that make me smile or laugh.

If they kept their political comments to those in "Pogo 'Possum" or "Li'l Abner" I wouldn't mind it as they were pretty funny. How can you top a political sign which says: "We have met the enemy and he is us"? Or when Mammy Yoakum would say; "Ah jes luvs our Gub'ment".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few days back I was watching the O'Reilly Factor and O'Reilly's guests were Juan Williams and some talk radio host named Warren Ballentine. The subject was the Limbaugh/NFL/Sharpton/Jackson fiasco and surprisingly enough, Juan Williams took Rush Limbaugh's side of the issue. Of course Sharpton and Jackson and the NFL Player's rep. had all be calling Limbaugh a racist so this Ballentine jerk was in their corner. Juan Williams actually made a bunch of sense in what he was saying and I was pretty surprised that he took the stance he did.

Toward the end of the segment, everyone was talking at once and the Ballentine guy told Juan Williams to "just go back to the porch". I immediately heard the statement and called it to my wife's attention that this slug had just made a racial comment which should have had Williams and O'Reilly in this clown's face. I am not sure whether they heard it or not but a couple of days later Juan Williams was hosting The O'Reilly Factor and made mention of the slur and remarked that he had not heard it at the time or he would have responded. Then a couple of days later, O'Reilly brought up the fact that the racial slur had been made and he gave his opinion.

Funny thing is that I am not sure that either O'Reilly or Juan Williams really know exactly how bad of a racial slur it actually was. According to Juan Williams and O'Reilly, the racial slur "Go back to the porch" meant that he was calling Juan Williams an "Uncle Tom". All I can say is that many of these so called news experts aren't nearly as up on stuff as they think.

There is an old racial slur in which the word porch is used which is way more derogatory than calling a black man an "Uncle Tom".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every day that passes brings us closer to losing our Constitutional rights. Please call, write, AND e-mail your Senators and Congressman and let them know in no uncertain terms that supporting Cap and Trade; Comprehensive Immigration Reform; Universal Health Care and/or Gun Control legislation will result in you and your family voting for their opponent.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I read an article this morning telling us that our elected officials and the Obama administration is pushing legislation which would classify assisted opening knives and all one-handed opening knives as switchblades. I don't own that many pocket knives which are not opened by using only one hand.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the same article there was an article telling of of trappers with special permits from the Florida Wildlife Commission had killed 18 Burmese Pythons on public lands. Estimates run as high as 100,000 for the number of Burmese Pythons in Florida's swamps. Perhaps the dinghy NPR hostess should talk to some of these folks.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, we spent last week end in Fredericksburg, Texas. What a great little town. We met some old friends from high school and some with whom I worked at the Houston Police Department between 1958 and 1970. Loads of good food and reunion with some of my best friends. I remembered that there were several folks on my direct mail list who lived in the Fredericksburg area but true to form, I didn't have my list handy and we really were pretty busy the entire time. Did I mention that the food in Fredericksbur was GREAT?

Please keep all of our military personnel in your prayers. They are in some tough shape with the way this administration is dragging their feet.

See ya' next week

Wednesday
October 14th, 2009 AWARDS / COMMON SENSE


WEDNESDAY - OCTOBER 14, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Regional Headquarters Of Vast Right Wing Smear Spreading Jingoistic Conspirators.

AWARDS:

I am not going to dwell all that long on the total lack of class shown by the Nobel Award Committee for selecting as the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize as none other than U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm). About the only other group to which I can compare the Nobel Prize Committee is the United Nations. For the past few years both have become at best irrelevant.

No one pays any attention to the meaningless sanctions imposed by the United Nations, and with very few exceptions, very few place any value on the Nobel Peace Prize. Let me name just a few past winners:

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Al Gore

Jimmy Carter

United Nations

Kofi Annan

Yasser Arafat

United Nations Peacekeeping Forces

Amnesty International

International Committee of the Red Cross

It would seem to me that if an award is presented to someone who for all practical purposes has done nothing constructive for their country or the world then the award loses quite a bit of its prestige and value.

While Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) is touted as being a real world leader and appears to be more interested in global opinions than those of the citizens of his own country, the truth of the matter is this; He is interested in how he personally is viewed rather than leading his country or some international group. Everything he says and does is directed at making himself appear more favorable than in accomplishing any real helpful programs.

Don't be fooled by this bogus Health Care Reform garbage. It is all about MORE POWER for the Obama administration with an eye on being re-elected to another four year term. This has NEVER been about health care. It has always been about a grab for power and in making more Americans dependent upon the government than there are at the present.

I read an article written by George Will, entitled: OLYMPIC GOLD FOR NARCISSISM. Mr. Will points out that Both Obamas, Barack and Michelle, gave dreadful speeches to the International Olympic Committee in their vain attempt to get Chicago as the site for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Mr. Will pointed out that the speeches from Michelle and Barack were about THEMSELVES.

In the 41 sentences of her remarks, Michelle Obama used some form of "I" or "me" 44 times. He points out that Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) was, comparatively, a shrinking violet using those pronouns only 26 times in 48 sentences. Still, 70 times in 89 sentences was sufficient to convey the message that somehow their fascinating selves were what made, or should have made, Chicago's case compelling.

Mr. Will's last paragraph dealt with how many Presidents often become characterized by particular adjectives:

"Honest" Abe Lincoln

"Grover the Good" Grover Cleveland

"Energetic" Theodore Roosevelt

"Silent Cal" Calvin Coolidge

"Confident" Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Likeable" Dwight Eisenhower

Less happily there were:

"Tricky Dick" Richard Nixon

"Slick Willie" Bill Clinton

Makes one wonder if the adjective applied to Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) might be something like:

"Vain"

"Arrogant"

"Narcissistic"

These last two adjectives were my own.

I received a copy of one article which I thought had a pretty good take on all of this. Parts of the article read as follows:

"European socialism cannot succeed without conquering the United States.---- So Lenin was right. Socialism cannot exist in just one country -- or one continent. It must dominate worldwide or wealth and power will flow to those who remain committed to the free market."

"The Nobel Prize is really Obama's payback for disciplining the unruly United States and taming it to be a member of the European family of nations. Europe wants to reverse the American Revolution and re-colonize us and it sees in Obama a kindred spirit willing to do its bidding."

Give those two paragraphs some real serious thought.

COMMON SENSE:

Within the past couple of days, I am sure we all have seen the reports of the young school boy who committed the heinous offense of taking his scout camping gear to school and school personnel making the keen observation that the camping kit contained eating utensils among which was a knife. I know the exact type of kit which this wee criminal carried to school and it contained the same stuff which it contained when I was a Cub Scout AND CARRIED MINE TO SCHOOL WITH ME ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION. Of course the personnel at Edgar Allen Poe Elementary School in Houston, Texas apparently were not nearly as observant as are these educators at this young man's school.

There were also several other reports which I watched:

The first from another school in another state in which an elementary school girl carried her lunch to school and her mother had sent with her some plastic eating utensils, one of which was a knife, you know, the kind you get in some restaurants with to go orders which normally break the moment you try to cut anything with it. Of course this young lady was disciplined for violating the school's policy on weapons.

Does it end there? Not likely.

There was a report of several boys, during recess, playing cowboys and Indians and galloping around on make believe horses and pointing their fingers at each other and saying bang as if shooting a pistol. Now on this one, I see several violations. The first being is pointing your finger as if it were a pistol. The second is making believe you were riding a horse at full gallop. One must wonder why the school officials did not immediately notify PETA. And of course the third, and possibly the most horrid of the violations, was the game they were playing was: COWBOYS AND INDIANS. Completely unacceptable in today's politically correct world. No more cowboys and Indians. What shall we call it? How about "Persons Employed By A Man Who Raises Bovines and Native Americans Who's Intentions Are Completely Misunderstood As Aggressiveness". Of course PETA might have a little something to say about this as well as the ACLU and probably the BIA.

That about tops it you say? Try again.

Another report of a young elementary school boy who drew a picture of something which was the general shape of a handgun on a piece of paper. This violated that particular school's weapons policy.

Can't get any worse than that? Missed it again.

A young boy made a spit wad out of paper. Not so bad, you say? Ah, but add to that the fact that he also had a rubber band and told another student that he was going to shoot a particular girl with the spit wad.

Now let me digress for a moment. You may be hearing from the spit wad king of Southwest Houston. Of course I did not use rubber bands.*** I had a short heavy plastic straw and I could propel a spit wad at something approaching the speed of light all the way across the room. Of course spit wads were unsanitary so I quickly learned that small balls of clay were even better. Did I violate the Edgar Allen Poe school weapons policy? Probably so as I had my weapons confiscated BUT even more important I received some licks, which were also in order, and made to do extra stuff.

*** As anyone with any brains should know that rubber bands are for shooting paper clips or small stapes.

Surely there cannot be anything else, you are thinking. Ah yes.

A junior high school student was suspended from some public school as she had a couple of ADVIL tablets in her purse. This, of course, violated the school drug policy and the girl was disciplined. Now let me try to explain something here so that perhaps even the folks who live in "The People's Republic of San Francisco" can understand. OK. Teenage girl; Over the counter pain pills; TEENAGE GIRL! Need I go further?

What is the common thread here in all of this. Simple. The school officials used very little and more than likely NO COMMON SENSE in dealing with any of these problems. Of course I realize that in today's public education systems the classroom teacher is somewhat prohibited from doing the right thing. But then that should mean that the ADMINISTRATION of that particular school should perhaps exercise a little common sense in dealing with something which I refuse to even call a PROBLEM.

You notice a little earlier I called it a "Public School" System. Well, let me correct that right now. It is called a PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, I suppose, to give some of us who pay the high school taxes the idea that we have actually a say in the operation of these places. I just read a chapter in a book entitled, THE MARKETING OF EVIL, and it pretty well reinforced something which I have known for a long time. It is NOT a "Public School System", it is rather a "GOVERNMENT SCHOOL SYSTEM".

Other than private schools, the federal government is controlling every public education system in the country. It is a pure fact that the individual states receive large amounts of money from the federal government. Any strings attached? You bet there are. This subject is absolutely so massive that there is absolutely no way to do it justice in my little weekly observations. But just do this. Get hold of an American History textbook used in today's government education system. Then compare it to some of the history which all of us learned many years back. You will find that these current textbooks are more interested in political correctness and diversity indoctrination than they are in relating what happened during the Civil War.

Recently on the FOX News channel they did a special regarding today's textbooks. They pointed out one history textbook which devoted more pages to Marilyn Monroe than they did to George Washington. How sad is that?

Just look at what is being taught to your children and grandchildren today AND even more important, just take a look at most college classes and see who is TEACHING OUR TEACHERS?

In this book, the author says; "Moreover, though I was a high achiever as a student,I can say honestly that 95 percent of what is really useful in my life today, in my career and as a husband, father, and citizen, I learned apart from school. In this I am far from alone."

I urge you all to read this book and get some ideas of what is wrong with our education system and perhaps give us some ideas on getting it back on track. I, for one believe that the application of common sense is a really good starting point. While Zero Tolerance might sound good, it also has some drawbacks unless COMMON SENSE IS APPLIED.

QUOTES:

"The mind set that sees children in school as an opportunity for teachers to impose their own notions, instead of developing the child's ability to think for himself or herself, is a dangerous distortion of education."................. THOMAS SOWELL

"With American students consistently scoring near or at the bottom in international tests, I am repeatedly appalled by teachers who waste their students' time by assigning them to write to strangers, chosen only because those strangers' names have appeared in the media."........................ THOMAS SOWELL

"After political crusades for 'affordable housing' ended up ruining the housing market and much of the economy with it, many of the same politicians are now carrying on a crusade for 'affordable health care'. But what you can afford has absolutely nothing to do with the cost of producing anything. Refusing to pay those costs means that you are just not going to continue getting the same quantity and quality --- regardless of what any politician says or how well he says it.".................

TIMES; L.A. TIMES; SOUTHER POVERTY LAW CENTER; MOVEON.ORG;

STUFF:

This past week I received a couple of e-mails from some folks who live in different parts of the country. The first was a copy of a letter written by a physician to her U.S. Senator. She happens to come from Poland and is a naturalized American citizen. In her very first paragraph she recalls the tyranny of an autocratic communist regime. She urges the Senator and the Republican party to be a visible and vocal OPPOSITION to the current healthcare reform proposals. She goes on to say how mainstream, common sense Americans oppose the increasing government control over their lives.

She touches on how Americans object to bills being written in the middle of the night, behind closed doors, that are voted upon without ever being read or fully understood. She calls for OPEN TELEVISED HEARINGS and gathering information from various representatives big and small from the healthcare industry. She calls for the elimination of waste. And in one of the most important lines she says, "The most important thing is to make the right changes and not sacrifice the freedoms and access that we enjoy or to irreparably damage our current system."

She went on to say that she was deeply offended by the President's irresponsible remark about physicians, under current system, being motivated by reimbursement. She goes on to point out several other remarks which only show his ignorance and demeans every physician who work hard and are deeply dedicated to care for their patients. AND FINALLY she points out that; "By the way, AMA, does not represent most of America's physicians." The doctor says that only about 30% are members of that organization.

So apparently, not all physicians are behind Barack Hussein Obama's (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) Universal Health Care reform. Wonder how many of those in the photo-op with Obama were there voluntarily?

--------------------------------------------------------------

OK. This from Detroit,MI. And this from the son of another good conservative who has a son who works in Detroit. The information from the son goes as follows:


The City of Detroit hired an outside Superintendent of Schools. He issued a directive that people had to come in person to get their paychecks and had to present a valid identification. He found that there were 1,300 people on the payroll who did not work at the schools.

He found that there were over 2,000 people on the healthcare program that didn't work for the school system. Ah, but when he took action to correct these travesties he was stopped in his tracks.

Other investigators found that the state of Michigan has over 1,000 different healthcare providers for school staff around the state. When an attempt was made to correct this, the unions got involved and stopped. The unions said it was their job to negotiate for healthcare.

There is an example of your "Public School System"

____________________________________________________

Earlier this week I was watching, I believe it was the Discovery Channel. Anyway they had a program about a man who eats clay for health reasons and has perfected a vitamin tablet from the clay. The program said that is was taken by the Astronauts as some of the properties actually did appear to prevent osteoporosis.

Eating clay for your health. I could not help but remember a number of years ago when a hooker in Hobbs, NM was arrested, they all had some type of little jar which contained a red clay. A bunch of officers were confused and I told them that they ate the clay to keep from getting pregnant. They didn't believe me. So the next time a hooker was in jail and she had her obligatory jar of red clay, I asked her to tell the officers why she carried the clay with her and she told the officers that it was good birth control medicine. One of the hookers told me where they went to get the red clay and that there was an abundance of it down in a drainage ditch near the back of a certain field.

The story should end there but it doesn.t. That particular field was owned by an eccentric old man who owned a number of acres where he lived in an old two room house trailer. I am sure he is no longer with us but he was known as B.B. which were his first two initials. B.B. was a bit particular about people trespassing on his property and had been known to resort to a little gunplay for offending folks.

Several weeks after the hookers told of their miracle drug there was a call went out of gunshots in the area of B.B.'s house. When we arrived, B.B. was still shooting from his back window down toward the previously mentioned ditch which contained the miracle drug which was also on his property. One of the Detectives with whom I worked was probably the only person on the planet who could approach this old dude. So he started hollering for B.B. to come to the front door, which he did. My friend went inside to talk to him while I went back to the ditch to see if there was someone shot back there. Upon my arrival I found three extremely muddy hookers who had been down in the ditch digging clay and evidently B.B. had spotted the movement and immediately began to fire on the offending parties.

These three hookers were happy to be alive and did not want any part of filing charges or going to court against B.B. so a report was made and the matter was dropped. I did suggest to the hookers that perhaps it would be best if they found another source for their "Magical Mystery Mud". They were in agreement.

One last item which really got me hot. A couple of days back, Medea Benjamin was a guest on the O'Reilly Factor. Now why anyone would have this heifer as a guest is beyond my comprehension. I was not paying very much attention to her as NOTHING she says has any meaning to me. That is until she started saying something to O'Reilly about "Going to Afghanistan and PUTTING HER LIFE ON THE LINE . That got my attention. This anti-military bitch was actually sitting up there on the TV screen and comparing her fact finding trip to Afghanistan to our brave men and women who are over there fighting every day. Of course CODE PINK has been on our Varmint;s List for a long time but this week I felt duty bound to add this arrogant beetle to the list also. Now had she gone over there and mooned a couple of Taliban terrorists, then I would say that she put her life on the line ------- that is unless the Taliban guys mistook her for just another goat, then her life would not have been in danger -- something else perhaps but not her life.

Later

Wednesday
October 7th, 2009 ROMAN / MORTGAGE / iOC

Wednesday - October 7, 2009

Hello once again from the West Texas Headquarters For Conspiratorial Right Wing Jingoistic Smear Merchants.

IOC:

This past week should have shown our country and the rest of the world just exactly what a weak administration Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) has chosen to lead. Of course it began last week with Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) getting the 2016 Olympics shoved up his backside. Now if you watched the presentation put on by he and his wife to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), you would have seen a pair of self centered, egotistical, arrogant people give our country some piss-poor representation.

Now, before I go along any further, let me tell you all that the IOC occupies just about the same level of respect with me as does the United Nations. For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would mean zero. For years the IOC has bullied their way across the globe and in my opinion have more than likely stolen more than they have produced. I am sort of partial to the description of the IOC which was given by Dr. Charles Krauthammer when he described them as "The usual collection of Euro-Trash".

I am sure that the liberals/socialists in the United States are at a loss as to how the IOC could have possibly gone against Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm), his really nice wife Michelle (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) and Oprah Winfrey. Perhaps the United States would have been better represented had they sent the Sham-Wow guy to whine before the IOC. At least we would have been spared the story of the poverty under which the First Lady grew up. I listened to her presentation and knew right away that the IOC vermin weren't buying it.

Hey! That gives me an idea, perhaps we would all better off if the Sham-Wow guy were in the White House and Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) and spouse were pushing the Sham-Wow; Mighty Putty; and that stupid mop.

Apparently the IOC figured that they could steal more from Rio de Janeiro than they could from the Chicago mob. Looks to me as if Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) should have sent ACORN to negotiate with the IOC. ACORN appears to be the only organization who possesses more pure turds than do the IOC and the UN. Notice I said more not bigger.

Also as a side note, I heard a report yesterday that Rio de Janeiro had the highest crime rate of any city on the globe. Now isn't that reassuring?

MORTGAGE:

I saw and heard several commercials over TV and radio this past week which dealt with people who had adjustable mortgages or mortgages which they were having problems in meeting payments. These commercials were begging the people in these categories to come in and see them for some mortgage relief.

One of the commercials said that they could loan up to 97% of the appraised value of the property. OK, for those of you living in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Austin, that would mean that they could loan all but 3% of the appraised value. Sure sounds good doesn't it? BUT what if the house only sold for 97% of the appraised value? That would mean $0.00 down wouldn't it?

Now some of you might think that is a bit far fetched but while taking my morning walk around my neighborhood I noticed a home for sale with the sign in the front yard advertising $0.00 down payment, so this must be the case for sure. And some of these advertisements were claiming that a person could get these loans with NO CREDIT RATING and NO CREDIT CHECK.

Let's see now. To whom were they catering? Sounds to me like they were romancing the same people who got loans over the past few years and could not make their payments and their homes went into foreclosure. Have these lending institutions learned NOTHING?

ROMAN:

We all are aware that film maker Roman Polanski was arrested on a warrant resulting from a 30 year old CONVICTION where good ol' Roman, how shall I put it, hauled ass, to avoid sentence. Of course the news mutts had everything all screwed up when they reported that he was arrested and was awaiting extradition so that he could be tried.

Then, of course, all the Hollywood idiots began to put in their thoughts regarding the matter and almost every one of them took Roman Polanski's side and thought he should be cut some slack since the case was over 30 years old. Of course the Hollyweird bozos never caught onto the fact that Roman wasn't coming back to face a trial since 30 years ago he PLED GUILTY. So, his guilty plea was in fact accepted by the judge and that is a conviction. What Roman did was flee the United States to avoid sentencing.

Of course some of the facts of the case finally came out after a couple of days of listening to Hollywood mutts whining that Roman should receive some special treatment. Even an expert such as Whoopi Goldberg took Roman's side and said that it wasn't actually a "Rape - Rape". No, Whoopi, you are correct it was not your ordinary Rape. As I understand it the main facts of the case are this:

The victim was 13 years old.

Roman Polanski was over 30 years old.

Roman filled the girl full of alcohol and drugs prior to sexual molestation.

Roman penetrated the young girl's anus.

So I guess that I agree with Whoopi, not your ordinary garden variety rape.

So my next question is this; Why would anyone on this earth pay even the slightest bit of attention to a super-ugly woman who is named after a cushion which makes the sound of someone passing gas, when sat upon? Or for that matter, why was this butt ugly broad even asked to voice her opinion? Oh, but I forget, Bill O'Reilly says that Whoopi is a nice person and has been a guest on The Factor many times.

SO WHAT?

Polanski needs to do some hard time and preferably with a cell mate named Isadore Fist, about the size of Hulk Hogan, possessing the world's largest knuckles and has the disposition of a Polar Bear on Dexedrine.

Anyway, Whoopi succeeded, once again, in making our Varmint List.

QUOTES:

"When politicians propose some hugely expensive new program and are asked who the government is going to pay for it, a standard ploy over the years has been to claim that they will pay for it by eliminating 'waste, fraud and abuse.' At a recent town hall meeting, a citizen raised the obvious question: If you can do that, why haven't you done it already?" .... THOMAS SOWELL

"The way the Hollywood elites have sprung to the defense of Roman Polanski to keep him from being extradited to the United States, despite the heinous crime he is accused of, suggests that --- like other egalitarians --- they consider those who are 'one of us' to be more equal than others."............. THOMAS SOWELL

"Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Muammar Qaddafi and Vladimir Putin have all praised Barack Obama. When enemies of freedom and democracy praise you president, what are you to think? When you add to this, Barack Obama's many previous years of associations and alliances with people who hate America --- Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Father Pfleger, etc.---- at what point do you stop denying the obvious and start to connect the dots?"........ THOMAS SOWELL

Hey! You don't suppose that Dr. Thomas Sowell is a racist, do you? He must be as he doesn't seem to be much in agreement with Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) on anything. OR, could the Liberals/Socialists be dead wrong on this racist issue?

STUFF:

It should be readily apparent that the Olympic pitch was much higher on Barack Hussein Obama's (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) list of priorities than was meeting with General McChrystal regarding the War in Afghanistan. General McChrystal has already let it be known that he needs additional troops and ordinance in order to win this war.

I think it is criminal the way General McChrystal has been treated by the President and by members of Congress. Of course House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made several statements indicating that General McChrystal is wrong. So with that being the fact, we should be absolutely positive that the General is RIGHT. It appears as if the media were more interested in reporting matters regarding the Dalai Lama's vain attempts to see Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm) than they were in a conflict which is costing American lives on a daily basis.

A couple of days back I received a copy of an article which was co-written by Gerald Molen and Paul E. Vallely,MG,US Army (Ret). The heading of the article was;

Elected and Appointed U.S. Government Officials Who Violate Their Oath of Office and The Constitution Must Resign.

This article goes on to quote our Declaration of Independence, in part:"... That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness...."

The article goes on to point out that the U.S. President, Vice-President, cabinet members and senior appointed officials, members of Congress, and members of the Supreme Court take the following sacred oath of office:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter; So help me God."

Now, how many of us out here believe that all of our elected officials have lived up to their oath? This article goes on to point out that this current administration along with many elected officials lead our people on a socialist and treasonous death march along with bankrupting the country.

The article points out that many of our elected officials have defiled our nation's founding documents and sacred principles ----- and violated their sacred oaths.

There is a website available: www.standupamerica.com and www.saveourdemocracy.org.

General Vallely has been on FOX News many times in the past

And keep in mind, don't be taken in by all this "Our Constitution is a living, breathing document which is ever changing". What a load of crap. Our Constitution is a pretty damn rigid document. It says what it means and it means what it says. The liberals/socialists who are constantly saying this are actually recommending the very system from which the colonists sought escape. The British Constitution was very flexible and no safeguard of American liberties. Keep in mind that the First Amendment was a RESTRICTION on the power of the federal government, not a grant of power.

Here are a couple of quotes from some of the FOUNDERS of our nation:

"What is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them" .... GEORGE MASON

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms......disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes..... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and the better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."..... THOMAS JEFFERSON

And finally my favorite:

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.".......... PATRICK HENRY

I just wonder how many of our school children have heard any of these quotes in their history classes? Parents and grandparents, you really need to take a good look at your children's/grandchildren's American History textbooks sometime. Go through it carefully and see if you can see how the history of our great country has been re-written.

MORE STUFF:

Within the past week a young student, who as I understand was an honor student, was beaten to death in CHicago. The beating was filmed by someone with a cell phone with a video camera. The young man was beaten by males with 2 X 4 boards. Of course when the news idiots reported it, they said that he was beaten to death with railroad ties. Now this just went to prove that you don't have to know horse crap from wild honey to be a reporter. It is pretty obvious that these bozos had no clue as to the size of a railroad tie. I have had to move railroad ties in the past. It is at least a 2 man job and even with two persons manning a railroad tie, I don't believe you could swing it and hit someone with it. You probably could succeed in dropping it on your own foot but you are not going to use a railroad tie as a club.

Another report this week advised that John McCain is attempting to rejuvenate the Republican Party allegedly at the request of the Republican National Committee. OK, let me make sure I've got this right. John McCain LOST the election to Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm). Why is it so prevalent in politics to go to the LOSER of an election to get them to revise your political party? Isn't this a bit like asking the losing quarterback to describe how to best beat a team to which they have just been soundly thrashed?

I don't know how this might effect the rest of you but I know the folks in Texas are plenty happy about it. This morning, Texas Governor Rick Perry pulled the plug on the infamous TransTexas Corridor which was all a part of a big master plan by President George W. Bush and the Presidents of Mexico and Canada for a NAFTA SuperHighway. This thing was to be a series of toll roads which actually started on the West coast of Mexico and came up through Laredo and pretty well paralleled Interstate 35. The original financing was with some European funds. The NAFTA SuperHighway was going to have its main hub in Kansas, I believe. Of course a couple of years back, the State of Oklahoma put a bit of a stumbling block in their way when they decided they didn't want it coming through Oklahoma. Anyway, a small part of the construction had already begun according to one of our local State officials. But it's all academic now.

I read in our local liberal rag this morning that this new Universal Health Legislation was going to put in an additional $121 Billion in taxes on the health industry. But of course that wouldn't have any effect on us, would it? I'm sure that the providers would just eat that tax burden and not pass it on to their customers.

There also was an editorial article by one of their liberal hacks this morning. But it wasn't about politics, it was about Pop-Culture IQ. Well I am not sure what a Pop-Culture IQ is but if it has anything to do with famous people and new movies and new performers, mine is probably about zero. A couple of Sundays back I looked in the magazine section and I did not recognize a single person on the page. Of course I am a bit of an old movie buff and don't have much use for any of the new stuff. All of these people seem to look and act exactly the same and they all appear to have a regular I.Q. of a dead hamster.

Also this week, the autopsy on Michael Jackson showed that other than being addicted to drugs and other than being dead, he was in remarkably good shape.**

I stole that line, I believe it was the doctor who signed the death certificate of John Wesley Hardin after he was shot in the back of the head in an El Paso, Texas saloon made a statement to the local newspaper: Reports say that other than being dead, he was in remarkably good condition.

Oh, before I forget, after the 2016 Olympics were given to Rio de Janeiro, Shepard Smith did a pretty good job of whining himself. Of course had he not whined would have really been newsworthy.

Other than being completely pissed at our government, I am in a remarkably good mood.

See ya later

September 30th, 2009 ARTICLES / HISTORY / GUTLESS


Wednesday - September 30, 2009

Hello once again from the West Texas Branch Of Jingoistic Vast Right Wing Conspirators.

HISTORY:

This past week we have been subjected to video reports of elementary school children in New Jersey and some other state, singing the praises of Barack Hussein Obama by reciting some type of chant acclaiming the grandness of the present "Leader of the Free World". Now of course, few if any of these children had any idea that they were pawns in the big chess game of the Democrat/Socialist party and their apparent leader, Barack Hussein Obama. But we must ask ourselves; Who wrote the lyrics? Who actually taught this chant to the children? Who authorized this indoctrination? Why was it done to begin with?

Of course the Principal of the New Jersey school said that it was in recognition of Black History Month. Now that would be almost believable if the school were located in the United Kingdom which does celebrate Black History Month in October. But last time I checked, New Jersey was still part of the United States of America in which Black History Month is celebrated in February. So, does this mean that we must be subjected to this idiotic and obvious indoctrination of young school children again in February?

Of course all of us heard the chant and saw the words on the television screen and so here comes my version of the Obama Indoctrination Chant:

Mmmm; Mmmmmm
Barack Hussein Obama
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
Raised by his grand mama
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
Married in Chicago
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
But says he don't know "Blago"*** (Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich)
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
He's never held a job
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
But he answers to the Mob
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
What do you think hes tryin'
Mmmm; Mmmmmm
Not sure but I bet he's lyin'

Now. What is the point of this, you ask? Simple, I am just trying to show exactly just how little talent one must have to make up a nonsensical rhyme for uninformed school children to chant. And in reality, my rhyme which took me about 5 minutes to compose is "Fastidiously" more accurate than the ones forced upon those school children.

So at the risk of being called a racist, I am going to say that not only are the persons responsible for this idiotic indoctrinating chant a bit void in their knowledge of history, they are piss poor poets.

MORE HISTORY:

September 15th - October 15th is Hispanic Awareness Month. So here are a few names of Hispanic (Mexican) people who more than likely will not be recognized:

Juan Abamillo
Juan Antonio Badillo
Antonio Cruz
Alejandro De LaGarza
Carlos Espalier (Luz)
Jose Gregorio Esparza
Antonio Fuentes
Brigido Guerrero
Torbio Losoya
Andres Nava
Trinidad Saucedo
Damacio Ximenes

Who are these people? Were they great songwriters? Were they great athletes? Were they famous politicians? The answer to these questions is NO. So who were they?

These brave men gave their lives on March 6, 1836 in defense of The Alamo. They were fighting alongside William B. Travis, Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, Almaron Dickerson, James Butler Bonham, and Dr. John Walker Baylor Jr. to gain freedom for the Republic of Texas from Mexico.

Recently it has been fashionable to say that since there were no survivors at the Alamo then no one alive could tell the story of what had transpired so that later versions in the past 10 or 15 years have been used to re-write history and diminish the heroism of the men who were killed in that epic battle.

Well let me give you a little more information. First of all there were survivors on the side of the Texians/Texicans, I've seen it both ways. And a few of them were certainly old enough to tell the story of what they had seen. Here are the survivors:

Ana Esparza - Adult
Enrique Esparza - 8
Francisco Esparza - 3
Maria de Jesus Esparza - 10
Manuel Esparza - 5
Petra Gonzales - Elderly adult
Susannah Dickerson - Adult
Angelina Dickerson - 15 mo.
Gertrudis Navarro - 19
Alejo Perez Jr. - 11mo.
Wolf Children - 11 and 12
Joe - He was a slave who belonged to William B. Travis. He also served as a rifleman and was wounded twice. He accompanied Susannah Dickerson and her child to General Sam Houston to relate what had happened at the Alamo.

Captain Juan N. Seguin had been sent by Col. William B. Travis to recruit additional men to defend the Alamo. Captain Seguin was on his way back with 25 additional men when the Alamo fell to superior forces.

"I invite all of you to join me in holding the venerable remains of our worthy companions before the eyes of the entire world to show it that Texas shall be free, and independent. Or, to a man, we will die gloriously in combat." ..................... JUAN N. SEGUIN

"You ask me if I remember it. I tell you yes. It is burned into my brain and indelibly seared there. Neither age nor infirmity could make me forget."........ ENRIQUE ESPARZA the 8 year old when released.

If they overpower us, we fall a sacrifice at the shrine of our country, and we hope posterity and our country will do our memory justice. Give me help, oh my Country! Victory or Death!" ........................ Written by William B. Travis, 2/25/1836

GUTLESS:

Our fearless President, Barack Hussein Obama declared in a recent speech that History began in January, 2009. Let's see now. What happened in January, 2009? Oh yes, Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as President of the United States.

And since then we have been fed a steady diet of Obama appearances and speeches. And in the process, in the past couple of weeks, what has he done?

Put Israel on the chopping block.
Threw Poland and the Czech Republic under the bus
Snubbed the War in Afghanistan in order to go to Europe to try and get the 2016 Summer Olympics for Chicago, while we have troops who need help.
Managed to gain the praise of: Fidel Castro, Momar Khadafi, Hugo Chavez, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Managed to offend NATO and has appeared weaker than France, the country which invented the white flag.

It is indeed a sad day when both the French President and the British Prime Minister appear stronger than does the President of the United States.

Of course Barack Hussein Obama has surrounded himself with people who are pretty much incompetent and weak. But none of them even come close to the President in the area of arrogance and outright conceit.

In short we need John Wayne and the Democrats have given us Richard Simmons.

ARTICLES:

Within the last week there were a couple of editorial articles which appeared in our local rag, the (Sub) Standard Times.

The first was by Jose de la Isla and entitled "It's Time For A Change." I couldn't agree more but I do not think Mr. de la Isla and I have the same ideas about what changes are called for. For instance, here is how he describes the recent town hall meetings which were held all over the country. "Gun-brandishing and outbursts at town hall meetings this summer were like a brain scan of the nation."

Now I do remember seeing a film clip of some weird looking dude with what appeared to be an AR-15 slung over his shoulder. Of course the film immediately indicated that the armed man was a conservative and as it turned out the guy was later identified as some out of line activist who had absolutely nothing to do with any conservative movement. Guess this slipped past Mr. de la Isla. But he had all the information necessary to tell us what drug down the Republican party in the 2006 and 2008 elections. The fact that he was wrong seems to make no difference. He ends up his article saying that in order to "Put the national train back on track means refocusing on reform."
"Most of all, tell them the no-change side speaks for itself. They make as much sense as taking a gun to a town hall meeting or to the PTA". Now I'm not sure where he got the idea of carrying a firearm to a PTA meeting was even an option. But the point is that Mr. de la Isla a left leaning loon who is evidently in favor of change for the sake of change, which makes no sense at all to me.

The second article was one by David Broder who is a columnist for the Washington Post, which is also a far left leaning liberal rag. Mr. Broder's article was entitled, now get ready for this one: "Obama Administration Proves To Be A Good Team". One must wonder if there is another country who has as its leader some other person whose last name is Obama and that Obama has surrounded himself with people who are actually competent.

Surely he couldn't be referring to the freak show that the world's most articulate and intelligent human has put together. The article goes on to single out Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, and Vice President Joseph Biden. I will have to say that Mr. Gates is the pick of this somewhat sub-standard litter. Funny how Mr. Broder failed to mention Attorney General Eric Holder or Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano or Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner or Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius or White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Wonder how that happened?

"Brainy folks were also present in Lyndon Johnson's administration, especially in the Pentagon, where Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's brilliant 'whiz kids' tried to micro-manage the Vietnam War, with disastrous results."........ THOMAS SOWELL

"Many people, including some conservatives, have been very impressed with how brainy the president and his advisors are. But that is not quite as reassuring as it might seem.-------There is usually only a limited amount of damage that can be done by dull or stupid people. For creating a truly monumental disaster, you need people with high IQs."....... THOMAS SOWELL

"Guard against the postures of pretended patriotism."... GEORGE WASHINGTON

"Peace is generally good in itself, but it is never the highest good unless it comes as the handmaiden of righteousness, and it becomes a very evil thing if it serves merely as a mask for COWARDICE and sloth, or as an instrument to further the ends of despotism or anarchy.".................

STUFF:

I went to my family doctor a couple of weeks back and inquired about regular flu shots and the H1N1 flu shots. My doctor said that my wife and I both needed to get the regular annual flu shot as soon as we could but that she was not particularly interested in us receiving the H1N1 (Swine flu) shots. She said that people over 65 were not at a very high risk to get this particular strain of flu. I have been thinking all along that the H1N1 warnings were a bit overdone. I have received several e-mails regarding stories of persons (particularly active military) having very bad reactions to the H1N1 vaccine. So for the present, we are not planning on getting this particular type of shot. It is a damn shame when you have a government which will take something like this swine flu and blow it completely out of proportion. And it is done to direct our attention elsewhere while they pick our pockets.

We have been hearing about how many jobs the Obama administration has created or saved. I for one am not buying their figures on how many jobs were saved. How can you tell? This is just something to make the public feel good about the magnificent job being done by the current administration.

And keep in mind, any job CREATED by the government is one which will be paid by our tax dollars. Increasing the size of government is NOT sound economics.

A couple of days ago I went to our post office and had to stand in line to mail a package to Colorado. A really fine old gentleman, a retired District Judge, was standing behind me in line. Since we knew one another we had a brief conversation and it came my turn and I went up to the teller to mail my package. As I was walking away looking at my receipt, the Judge asked the teller for a roll of stamps. The teller asked him,"Do you want any one in particular?". (Now for those of you residing in the People's Republic Of San Francisco, she was referring to the picture on the face of the stamp.) Without missing a beat the Judge said, "Yeah, I'd like one with someone thumbing their nose at Obama, but I don't imagine that one's out yet." The entire post office erupted in laughter and applause. I looked back and didn't see one person who was offended by the Judge's comment. I waited for him at the front door and had to tell him just what a crap stirrer he really was. He laughed and agreed.

A few days ago I was watching either CSPAN or FOX News and they were showing some hearings being conducted by one of the Senate subcommittees which had Max Baucus (D-MT) as the Committee Chairman. I believe it was Arizona Senator Jon Kyl, who was speaking and attempting to make a point and Baucus kept interrupting the Senator who had the floor. He was a complete rude turd and Senator Kyl appeared to be a bit pissed but that didn't slow Baucus down a bit. So he made the Varmint's List this week for his behaving like a complete ass. At what point in time did these elected mutts get the idea that they could speak down to people, including their peers.

I am sure that I could not last very long at a Senate hearing of any kind. I can assure you all that Max Baucus would sooner go into the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City and slap Miss Kitty around than talk like that to me.

The more I watch these elected buffoons, the less common sense I believe they have. And I know they are all very well educated people but on occasion the appear to possess the IQ of a traffic cone. There's not a one of them who couldn't do with a serious ass whipping. I sort of favor the type administered by the police in Hong Kong with the bamboo rod.

And I think we should all give some serious thought to installing a system similar to the one employed by the Spartans. When an elected official had completed his term, he was immediately put on trial to justify his actions during the time he held office. If he had been honest and done the right thing, he was released. If he were found to have been a bad office holder his punishment fit the degree of is malfeasance.

I did get a call from the NRA last week and talked to one of their representatives who discussed with me the probability of the United Nations getting ready to push for a worldwide firearms ban. This would ban firearms ownership by private citizens. They apparently will attempt to do this through treaty which would be binding if signed by the U.S. AND RATIFIED BY OUR CONGRESS/SENATE. So everyone keep your eyes and ears open as this will apparently be the next move by the gun control mutts.

Until then, keep on your Senators and Representatives.

Later

Wednesday
September 23rd, 2009 TRANSFORMATION / TIES / U.N.


Wednesday - September 23, 2009

Hello, once again, from the West Texas Association For Conspiratorial Jingoistic Smear Merchants.

First of all I would like to deny providing drugs for Anna Nichole Smith. It seems that the death of Anna Nichole Smith is now back in the news so I guess it is time for everyone to either try to gain their fifteen minutes of fame by claiming to be the father of Anna's child and one must wonder if some more will either seek their fame by either denying or claiming involvement in the drug induced death of this woman.

TRANSFORMATION:

Yesterday morning I got up and started my normal morning routine. After getting dressed I went outside to pick up my morning newspaper. When I went out my front door on the first day of Autumn, I felt a brisk breeze blowing in from the North and there was a really fresh smell in the air. At 6:35 A.M., Central Daylight Time, I was immediately transformed from a five foot eleven inch, one hundred eighty nine pound, seventy two year old, really grouchy old dude into: A five foot eleven inch, one hundred seventy five pound, seventeen year old, lightning fast, Texas Class A High School running back who was just getting ready to receive the opening kickoff.

At least that's what it felt like. The first day of Autumn in West Texas is surpassed only by Christmas and the birthdays of my loved ones. I normally take a two mile walk in the morning right after I read the paper and I actually cut almost two minutes off my normal time. So don't give me that ol' crap about you can't go back. Because I know that for a short time you can. I did it yesterday morning.

TIES:

Last Wednesday evening I watched The O'Reilly Factor on the FOX News Channel. I don't recall exactly who his guests were at the time of the discussion regarding President Barack Hussein Obama's connection with ACORN. And it was no surprise to me that Bill O'Reilly tried his level best to convince us that President Obama's ties to ACORN were very minor and were limited to acting as an attorney hired by ACORN some thirteen years ago. He said that this was certainly no indication that Barack Hussein Obama had any real close ties to ACORN.

It seems to me as if I can remember, during the campaign, that candidate Barack Hussein Obama promised ACORN members that they would have a seat at the table of his administration. Evidently Mr. Bill also forgot that ACORN was to have been a major player in the 2010 Census.

He must also have blown past the information that this latest stimulus package had $8 Billion dollars earmarked for ACORN.

I actually believe that Mr. Bill is a bit pissed that President Barack Hussein Obama has recently appeared on a number of other television talk programs. I might add that most of the questions posed to the world's most articulate and intelligent human were at best "Softball" questions. I believe that O'Reilly wants to have President Obama appear on his program badly enough to try and kiss up to him and be really non-confrontational in order accomplish this.

I also feel that Mr. O'Reilly has allowed his international popularity and his perception of power to go right to his ever swelling head. Fair and balanced my backside.

Then after this pitiful stance, later in the week, Chris Wallace had the CEO of ACORN as a guest on his program. She had also appeared This woman was so evasive that "A caveman could see through it". She never did give a straight answer. Now this is what I pretty much expected out of this old squack but then when discussing her appearance with another guest, Bill O'Reilly said that he thought that her answers were "sincere" when responding to questions by Chris Wallace.

If this is an example of Bill O'Reilly's ability to judge the character of someone who is obviously part of an apparent criminal enterprise, then he should move on over to MSNBC where he can be squeezed neatly in between Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman.

I don't know who first said it but "Absolute Power DOES Corrupt Absolutely". I believe Mr. O'Reilly is living proof.

U.N.

Most of today I have been listening to or watching events taking place at the United Nations. I guess one of the first things I noticed was how much President Barack Hussein Obama blamed the United States for many of the world's problems. How much longer will this apology last?

How much longer will we be subjected to The President Of The United States selling out our allies in order to gain favor with the likes of Iran, Cuba, China, Russia, Venezuela, and Libya as well as a myriad of other banana republics. What is with all that crap about, "not being able to accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements"? Now I have never been to Israel but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Israel is probably the ONLY ally in the Middle East on whom we can depend in a crunch.

While listening to him this morning I noticed that he referred to the United States of America as "My Country" and the entire talk was directed at blaming the United States for the majority of the world's conflicts and the speech was more about him (Barack Hussein Obama) than it was about problems facing the world. It was almost as if, in the mind of the President, history actually began in January, 2009 when he was sworn in as President. Everything before that was irrelevant.

My question is this, who on this planet pays any attention to a United Nations Resolution? Or for that matter United Nations Sanctions? A United Nations Resolution/Sanction is sort of like being threatened by Pee Wee Herman. It is laughable.

MORE STUFF:

This past week I was watching one of the FOX News programs and they showed a film clip of President Barack Hussein Obama back pretty early in his presidency. The world's most articulate and intelligent human was talking about us not being able to depend upon our military for our security. He indicated that what we actually need is a "Civilian Security Force just as strong and just as well funded as our military." Now I don't know about the rest of you but this is a pretty scary concept. We already have civilian federal law enforcement: F.B.I. - A.T.F. - Secret Service - United States Marshals - U.S. Customs - Border Patrol - D.E.A.- U.S. Customs - Federal Air Marshal Service - Department of Health and Human Services Investigators - U.S. Fish and Wildlife - U.S. Park Police - Bureau of Indian Affairs - U.S. Postal Service - National Security Agency - and a number of other agencies.

So I just have to wonder exactly what kind of Civilian Security Force does the President have in mind for us? Of course all of this was probably taken "Out of Context".

The House this past week has voted to "De-Fund" ACORN. Well congratulations. What really gets my backside read as a baboon's rear is; WHY WAS ACORN FUNDED TO BEGIN WITH? Now I am not saying that many of our elected officials are just "butt stupid" but why is it that these people have been allowed to operate using taxpayer dollars for as long as they have? And as even Mr. O'Reilly acknowledged, President Barack Hussein Obama had ties to ACORN as their attorney back at least 13 years ago.

And keep in mind, the world's most articulate and intelligent human sat for 20 years in Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years and didn't have a clue as to what the good Reverend was preaching. But as Dr. Thomas Sowell has said on many occasions, Barack Obama may be many things but NOT STUPID.

STILL MORE STUFF:

Our local paper the "Sub" Standard Times printed the top-ten category winners of this years Emmy Awards. I am happy to say that the only name I recognized was Alec Baldwin, who I personally believe to be a total mutt, and Glenn Close who I believe is a total muttess or heifer, take your pick. I have never viewed any of the shows. And I would imagine that a year from now, I will be able to proudly make the same statement.

Most of the time, when my wife and I eat dinner/supper/evening meal we watch a small television and watch the news program on FOX News: Special Report With Bret Baier, and of course this program has as a general rule Charles Krauthammer. Since William F. Buckley passed away, Charles Krauthammer has taken his place is being a thorn in the paws of most liberals/socialists.

Anyway almost every day during the commercial breaks we are subjected to commercials addressing some really unappetizing subjects. Among these commercials are those insulting male enhancement commercials. I am occasionally tempted to knock the stupid looking smile off Bob's face in the Enzyte commercials. I think it is Enzyte or Levitra, they are all interchangeable. Point being is that they are not only insulting but unappetizing. Then of course occasionally you might be bombarded by some drug to combat "Yeast Infection". Then you have some blood pressure and cholesterol commercials which all make you aware of some of the "Side Effects" which may include; drowsiness; insomnia; stroke; difficulty breathing; or occasional internal bleeding. The damn side effects sound worse than the problem. I fully expect them to air a commercial on how to disembowel a rotting skunk carcass. Of course I guess I could watch something else, but it seems as if the commercials are pretty much the same. Or I could turn the damn thing off, but then I might miss Charles Krauthammer taking apart a variety of liberal/socialist varmints.

Anyway, Autumn is officially here in West Texas and it feels really great to be transformed each morning for an hour or so.

I received an e-mail a couple of days back which contained a video of the new F-22 Raptor aircraft. What an absolutely awesome aircraft. I do not remember how many were cut from the original request from our military but to withhold a piece of equipment with the potential of the F-22 Raptor is criminal. This plane does some scary stuff and I really don't believe anyone on the planet has anything that can compare. But our present administration cut the original request by at least half. What a crime. Michelle Obama might be proud but the rest of us should be ashamed of the manner in which our elected officials are performing. NO! I take that back, many of us tried to do our part but fell short. And quite frankly I blame the sitting Republicans just as much as I do the Democrats. Think REPLACEMENT IN 2010.

Wednesday -
September 16th, 2009 ACORN / RACISM / RESOLUTION

Wednesday - September 16, 2009

Hello once again from the Vast Right Wing Jingoistic Conspiratorial Attack Machine. This has been quite a week. Once again we were subjected to a prime time speech by the world's most articulate and intelligent human.

RESOLUTION:

As you are all aware, during this speech, President Barack Hussein Obama made the statement that illegal aliens would not receive any benefits from his new universal health care plan. Of course it was at this moment when South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson yelled out, "YOU LIE". Without belaboring this subject, Congressman Wilson was out of order yelling out and interrupting an address to both Houses of Congress.

Congressman Wilson did contact President Barack Hussein Obama and apologize for his outburst during the President's speech. President Barack Hussein Obama accepted Congressman Wilson's apology since the apology was, and rightfully so, meant for the President.

This should have ended the whole bit BUT that was not the case. Keep in mind, Mr. Wilson is a member of the United States House of Representatives and his apology to the President was not nearly enough to suit the House leaders. Now for those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer, House Majority Leader. Anyway, both Pelosi and Hoyer demanded an apology to the U.S. Congress by Rep. Wilson. To his credit, Congressman Wilson REFUSED to make that apology. This of course was unacceptable to the two mutt leaders so instead of taking care of their congressional business, the entire U.S. House of Representatives devoted their somewhat limit talents to passing, now get ready for this: A Resolution of Disapproval for Congressman Wilson.

When you watch how the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are operated, you have to believe that the collective I.Q. of the Liberal/Socialist majority approaches that of a dead armadillo.

Now mark this down in your books or on your calendar or where ever you keep a record of rare occurrences. But here it comes. I found something on which President Barack Hussein Obama and I are in complete agreement.

I heard President Barack Hussein Obama make the statement that Rap Star Kanye West was a "JACKASS". Now there is a Presidential statement with which I am in complete agreement. For those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Workers Province of Massachusetts, President Barack Hussein Obama made this statement regarding Kanye West's behavior at the MTV Awards show. Since I have MTV blocked out on my TVs, I had to see film clips of this event. I's sooner be pecked to death by a duck than watch the MTV Awards show.

Oh, and before I forget, while Rep. Joe Wilson was out of order calling President Barack Hussein Obama a liar in that setting, he was absolutely correct in his assessment of this character flaw in the world's most articulate and intelligent human. BUT, he will have to live the remainder of his life knowing that he received a Resolution of Disapproval from the most incompetent governing body in our history.

OH NO!!!! PLEASE!!!! NOT A RESOLUTION OF DISAPPROVAL!!!!!

Give me a break. Actually, although he did something fairly stupid, Congressman Wilson actually came out of this whole incident looking better and definitely more courageous than did the remainder of the Congressional Varmints who voted FOR the Resolution of Disapproval.

RACISM:

Apparently all it takes to be branded a racist is to disagree with President Barack Hussein Obama. And we have no less an authority than former President Jimmy Carter telling us what racists any of us who do not subscribe to Barack Hussein Obama's brand of Socialism. Of course former President Carter would be India, if stupidity were people. (And for the folks confined to the Gulag of Austin, this refers to the NUMBER of persons inhabiting India, not their skin color).

I heard an audio clip of Rush Limbaugh making a statement regarding multi-culturalism being elevated to such a high degree of importance. Then almost immediately I listened to liberal/socialist/democrat hacks speak at length about what a racist Mr. Limbaugh.

It suddenly dawned on me that these boobs didn't have a clue about culture, race, or racism.

So before I go any further let me give a couple of definitions;

RACE - any of the different varieties of human beings, distinguished by physical traits, blood types, skin color, etc.

RACISM - the PRACTICE of RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

CULTURE - the skills, arts, etc. of a given people in a given period/civilization.

SO, nowhere in any of these definitions are culture and race mentioned in their respective descriptions. Let me see if I can put it so simply that either an elected official or a reporter might understand.

French people who were born in France are for the large part white in skin color. Those people have a different set of values, customs etc. than do the British who are also for the largest part white in skin color but have a completely different set of values, customs, etc.

So if someone who was born and raised in France decided to move to the United States, should the 300 or so million U.S. citizens change their values, customs, lifestyles, etc. to suit that one white person from France? I think not.

Do you suppose that if an American citizen, white, black or brown, moved to France that the French people would change their complete lifestyles to accommodate that one American immigrant? If they did not, would that be racism?

The people of the United States are actually of many races. And perhaps they have come from various cultures, unless they were born in the United States. But all Americans have grown up under the American culture which was acceptable to the majority of the American people at the time. And that American culture is a mixture of many different racial backgrounds.

Why, then, are the citizens of the United States expected to completely disregard their customs, religion, habits, or lifestyles to accommodate persons who are wanting to be accepted as citizens of our country?

Ah, but since we are presently living in a society which is largely controlled by a liberal media; a liberal education system; a very liberal secondary education system; a liberal entertainment system; and a liberal government, multi-culturalism has become much more important than it should be. And not under any circumstances should it become a controlling issue in our everyday lives.

Let me pose this problem. There are two Dutch people who were both born in South Africa. They had one son who also grew up and married another Dutch girl who had been born in South Africa. They had three children who also grew up and married dutch mates. Then one of those children migrated to the United States and became a United States citizen. That child married a white male who had also migrated to the United States from South Africa. They had a son who was white, but his ancestors for several generations had been born and still lived in South Africa.

PROBLEM: Why would that child not be an African-American? His ancestors were African by birth he was descended from African citizens. Why could he not be an African-American?

Not trying to start trouble but perhaps this is my way of saying that all this hyphenated American stuff is a load of crap.

ACORN:

Of course, unless you have been handcuffed in a cave for the last week ( Barney Frank might like this) we have all been exposed, or should I more correctly say, ACORN has been exposed for the group of fraudulent, criminal, vermin they are.

And the video we have seen was not from just one ACORN group. No, it was from several from the East coast to the West coast. Of course the ACORN supporters try to defend their mutt employees by revealing the fact that the young man and young lady, who surreptitiously filmed these brain surgeons attempting to aid in the commission of felonies, were ACTING.

Well blow me down! Acting. Damn, I never thought of that. Of course they were acting. I seriously doubt if you could get a real pimp and hooker to film themselves attempting to get funding from this organization. And I use the term organization in the loosest sense. If these idiots are organized then I will more than likely be crowned the next King of Ethiopia. They call themselves Community Organizers but in actuality they are nothing but shit-stirrers. Hey! Wasn't President Barack Hussein Obama a Community Organizer?

But what really gets my backside red as a three ball is the fact that these people receive millions in federal funds and up until this week they were on board to assist in the U.S. 2010 census. And there have been reports that something like $8 Billion has been budgeted to give to this criminal organization.

Then, after the videos were aired, the Attorney General of Maryland seemed to be more interested in prosecuting the man and woman who had outsmarted these boobs, for secretly video taping the incident without the knowledge of the ACORN slugs. I will just bet that he does not push this too hard as all of the incidents clearly show criminal intent on the ACORN employees. And since the ACORN employees were multi-racial I don't suppose that racism will be much of a defense. Of course, they will try it for sure.

You don't suppose that the Maryland Attorney General is related to that District Attorney who was dead set on prosecuting the Duke LaCrosse players, do you?

MORE STUFF:

I believe that it was yesterday evening and I was watching Bill O'Reilly. I believe that his guest was Karl Rove and of course the topic of discussion was President Barack Hussein Obama and they were talking about some of Obama's policies and I heard O'Reilly make the statement that he thought that Obama was tough on terrorism and of course he was asking Karl Rove if he was in agreement. Rove did not really give an answer that told me he was in agreement.

And I know that this will not put Mr. O'Reilly in a different tax bracket but I sure don't see where Barack Hussein Obama has made one single move which leads me to believe that he is now or ever will be tough on anything or anyone other than the American taxpayer.

I absolutely do not understand how much that O'Reilly is kissing up to President Obama. And also during one of the O'Reilly broadcasts he made reference to the crowd of 75,000 which showed up in Washington, D.C. for the Tea Party type protest against the present policies of our government. Of course our newspaper, the Sub-Standard Times acknowledged that "tens of thousands" showed up to protest. Then I read a couple of accounts which ranged from 250,000 to 1.2 million.

I was not there but I was making a guess from a couple of aerial photos which I saw and it sure looked like a 250,000 to 500,000 did not seem out of line. If anyone knows of a really good estimate, please let me know.

Now, here is a piece of news that I just know you have all been on the edge of your seats wondering about. Now tell the truth, you have all be wondering just who was going to replace Paula Abdul as a judge on American Idol. Well wait no longer. Ellen Degeneres will be her replacement. Wow, what a relief to know that American Idol has found someone who I like at least as much as I liked Paula Abdul. Actually I like plague carrying rodents more than I like Ellen Degeneres, Paula Abdul, Simon or American Idol.

Anyway, I just got an e-mail today from the very first Marine to whom we mailed packages when he was in Iraq. It was good news. He is now stationed in Georgia near his beautiful home. A couple of years back he sent us photos of he and his lovely wife and beautiful daughters. It sure does me good to continue to hear news from those guys.

Yesterday I received several packages through the mail. Two of them were Christmas gifts for my Marines and my grandsons. The third was a folded American Flag and an embossed folder which contained a Certificate of Authenticity showing that the Flag was flown over Camp Al Taqaddum, Iraq, atop the 2nd Marine Logistics Group Headquarters Building on August 17, 2009. It absolutely choked me up to think that this group of Marines thought enough to take time out to do something nice for us.

With that I will go until next week

Keep in mind, there are more of us out here than the liberal/socialist mutts would like to think.

September 11th, 2009 CREDIBILITY / SPEECHES

September 11, 2009

CREDIBILITY/SPEECHES:

Let me address a few items which I believe bring to question the credibility and judgement of President Barack Hussein Obama.

The first thing I would like to address is the resignation of Green Czar Van Jones which occurred over some of the statements made by this bozo. Of course the president had no idea that his Czar appointee had those views. OK, let's say that is the truth (which it isn't). One must pose the question, WHY DIDN'T HE KNOW? Of course Jones was just the last in line of associates and former associates of Barack Hussein Obama who has shown himself to be a socialist; a racist; and completely incompetent. Oh! But let us not forget that DNC Chairman, Howard Dean reminded us that Jones was a best selling author and has a degree from Yale. What in the hell difference does any of this make? I would not care if he had a degree from "Bugtussle Tech" or from Oxford. A turd is a turd and a socialist is a socialist.

I don't know about the rest of you but blaming Caucasians for everything wrong in our country is wearing pretty damn thin with me. It is fairly obvious that members of the white race have done things which were wrong. But dare I say it? So have black people, brown people, oriental people and persons of mixed races. But to blame one single race for EVERY PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, is just plain stupid. Now I know that just perhaps this sounds like I am saying that Van Jones is wrong, so let me remove all doubt.

Van Jones is not only WRONG but as William F. Buckley would have said, "He is FASTIDIOUSLY WRONG".

But what really concerns me is not the racial feelings and comments made by Van Jones, but rather that President Barack Hussein Obama has so little grasp of reality and judgement as to appoint someone of so little real talent as this mutt to a high ranking position. And of course it was a position which did not need the approval of Congress and in reality is a pretty useless job. If it was not useless, then why have we not had this position made a cabinet post?

OK. Enough about Jones. Now let us look at President Barack Hussein Obama's speech given to various school districts on Tuesday. Of course many school districts declined to show the speech live. I am proud to say that the San Angelo Independent School District chose NOT to show the speech to their students.

Now I know that many of you are thinking that the speech was pretty tame and that it contained nothing which would have been harmful to students. And after watching the speech, I must say that the speech was fairly generic and the general tone of the message was innocuous. BUT, this speech was toned down from the original plan of the Obama Administration. In the original plan after the speech, Barack Hussein Obama was going to request that students turn in a paper stating what they could do to help President Obama. This was of course the original rub against the speech. So then the second plan was to have the students write a theme on setting up goals which would help themselves.

Now if you notice the subject was first Obama then second themselves. First of all, I have a problem with ANY U.S. President dictating any lesson plan to any school. And then I wondered why Obama didn't request that the students write a paper on what they could do to HELP THEIR COUNTRY or to HELP OTHERS. Of course we all know the answer. President Barack Hussein Obama cares about himself first and obviously doesn't have any problem with others thinking of themselves ahead of others.

The bottom line is that I don't think his school speech ended up being a very big deal. But you must also see that much of the stuff he was putting out in his speech should actually be the job of the parents of the school children. And I know that there are many parents who do not fulfill their duty as parents but that still doesn't relieve them of their responsibility and it damn sure doesn't mean that the government must take over parenting duties.

Let's move on the last night's speech before both Houses of Congress.

After fifty tedious minutes, President Barack Hussein Obama still had not really told the American people just exactly how his plan was going to work. Ah, but he did give us a glimpse into how his health program could be financed. And here is his idea: Cut the WASTE, FRAUD, AND ABUSE of Medicare and Medicaid.

OK. One must necessarily ask this question: If waste, fraud, and abuse exist in these established government programs, then why in the hell isn't there already steps being taken to STOP THIS STEALING FROM THESE PROGRAMS? Don't stand there and tell me that all of a sudden after years of government waste, fraud, and abuse of these existing programs that suddenly the government is going to "Get Tough" and put a stop to these abuses.

And of course during his speech, which was laced with outright lies, Barack Hussein Obama had to attempt to put us all on a guilt trip by telling us all that he had recently received a letter from his "Beloved Friend", the recently deceased Senator, Edward Kennedy (That would be Fat Teddy for those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco). He also kissed up to Senator John McCain and Senator Orin Hatch who have apparently realized that during the Fat Teddy funeral that it was politically expedient for them to appear to be very close to the rotund Senator from Massachusetts.

Then of course there was that moment when after having told the masses that Illegal Aliens would receive NO BENEFITS under this Universal Health Care plan, South Carolina Congressman, Joe Wilson yelled out "You Lie". Of course Nancy Pelosi looked like someone had just caused and electric shock to jolt her body, and that alone was worth it. Of course, it was rude to shout this out during a presidential speech, even though it was true.

Then this morning, Congressman Wilson did apologize to President Barack Hussein Obama and it was accepted. Now we are all friends again. Perhaps Rodney King was correct. Maybe we can all just get along. Let me think about that for a minute.................................. Nah.

Then after this boring speech which still told us NOTHING other than Barack Hussein Obama is convinced that the government under his swift and bold acting leadership can do a better job of deciding what is best for us all than can we, we were treated on FOX News to Bill O'Reilly telling us what we had just heard. Now I don't know about the rest of you but I know what I heard and I know what I believe was meant by our socialist president. I understand that O'Reilly is governed by ratings and that he sometimes takes an opposing view just to keep the conversation interesting. I also understand that Mr. O'Reilly is an intelligent and talented host of a very popular cable news program. But when during this program, Mr. O'Reilly comes out with the statement that it is his belief that President Obama is sincere in his feelings about this health care package and pretty much took Obama's side, I have to question Mr. O'Reilly's ability to judge the character of people. Funny thing is comedian Dennis Miller seemed to have a much better grasp of what had just been shown to Americans than did Bill O'Reilly.

Anyone who was really listening to Barack Hussein Obama should be able to see that Obama, while most articulate, ends up telling us what he thinks we want to hear. It is most obvious that Barack Hussein Obama believes that we all have the I.Q. of a dead battery. That due to him being articulate, everything he says will be accepted without question. And of course it generally is accepted by far left socialist loons.

I was watching an interview last week with a democrat hack ,who obviously has either bought into or has been bought off, make the statement that it was "A shame that our president has to waste his valuable time trying to convinced UNINFORMED AMERICANS that health care reform is best for them."

This statement caused me to go to my bookshelf and pick up a copy of "Shut Up And Sing" by Laura Ingraham. On the very first page, the very first few sentences are: They think we're stupid. They think our patriotism is stupid. They think our churchgoing is stupid. They think our flag-flying is stupid. They think having more than two children is stupid. They think where we live------- anywhere but near a few major cities is stupid. They think our SUVs are stupid. They think owning a gun is stupid. They think our abiding belief in the goodness of America and its founding principles is stupid. Ms. Ingraham's book was published in 2003 but she pretty well summed up what the liberals/socialists/democrats think of us.

Consequently, they believe that they can tell us anything and we will go for it. Well they evidently are finding out that perhaps there are more of us out here who are not buying into what they are selling. And what they are selling is GOVERNMENT CONTROL. And when I say government control I mean government control over every aspect of our lives.

Last night when Bill O'Reilly was speaking to Mr. Axelrod, an Obama staffer, and Mr. O'Reilly asked Axelrod why the federal government didn't just pass a law and override the individual state's regulatory control over health insurance companies. It suddenly dawned on me that even O'Reilly is evidently caved in to the aspect of government control over everything.

Thank God, not every newscaster has gone over to the dark side. So at this point I must question the credibility of John McCain, Orin Hatch, and Bill O'Reilly, that is assuming that what they are saying is what they believe.

The bottom line is this: The present administration is interested in power. And I mean power at every level. They want to have a say in every aspect of our everyday lives. They want to control what we see; what we listen to; what we eat; where we live; what we buy; what we drive; WHAT WE SAY; and last but not least, how long we live.

Please just stop and think about the number of businesses which have in effect been taken over by the United States Government just since Barack Hussein Obama has been in office; The banking industry; the automobile industry; our education system; they are working on our health insurance industry. What will be next?

We need to view some new faces in the U.S. House of Representative and the U.S. Senate. And we need to see them in 2010.

STUFF:

It is always a really good week when I have an opportunity to meet, in person, one of the people who receive my weekly letter. This week, Jim Pinac from Richardson, Texas. Jim couldn't stay for long as he was on his way to meet his family at a ranch West of San Angelo. And of course I found him to be just the kind of person that I had expected from communicating with him via e-mail. Hope to get to visit with him some more.

Also this week I was watching a news report of a football coach who is being tried criminally for the death of one of his players during a practice. I can't remember in which state this occurred but it was reported that this was the first criminal prosecution of its kind. Of course it is always tragic when a young man or woman dies while either training or participating in a sporting event. I am sure that it has already had a profound effect on many school districts.

After hearing of this, I began to think back on all of the coaches I had known while growing up. And of course, living in Houston, Texas when football practice started (two-a-days) around the last week in August, it was ALWAYS HOT AND HUMID. And back in the early 1950s, every football coach on the planet thought that water was evil, except when practice was over. I have run until I was sick and got a salt tablet for my troubles. I cannot recall any player, at least in the Houston area, who ever died either on the practice field or in a game.

But I did think back on all of the coaches with whom I had dealings back then and in fact most of them were pretty darn good guys. Most of them praised you when you did good and jumped your butt when you were messing around. Coaches were also responsible for corporal punishment when you did something stupid. That was in both Jr. High and High School. Almost every year when we visit with some old friends from Hempstead, Texas I am reminded of my friend Kenneth Smith and I getting caught red handed doing something against the rules. Coach Fred Pepper took us both to the coaches office and Smith received his FIVE swats first. I then stepped up to take my FIVE and Coach Pepper said, "Murphy, I know Smith is pretty straight but I know you have done a bunch of stuff that you haven't been caught at." At this time I received TEN swats. After we left, Smith was laughing as he had skated on a bunch of stuff. But in reality, I didn't have any problem with getting the TEN swats as I had skated on a bunch of stuff when I deserved swats but got nothing. So I actually saw the justice in our punishment.

But the coach who really stands out in my mind is one of the Assistant Football Coaches at Sidney Lanier Junior High in Houston. His name was Jim Wright. Mr. Wright was attending SMU on a football scholarship when the Second World War broke out. Mr. Wright joined the United States Marine Corps. He could have been a recruiting poster boy for the Marines. He was about 5'8" and weighed in at about 225 pounds. He had no neck and possessed the body fat of an anvil. He was rock hard and didn't put up with a bunch of crap. Several of us noticed that Mr. Wright had a very thin white scar along one side of his jaw. Of course we never asked him about it but I did ask our Head Coach, Mr. Glen Stanbaugh about it and he told me and a couple of other guys that Mr. Wright had been wounded on one of the islands in the Pacific. According to what we were told, he had been shot in the jaw and after being shot carried another wounded Marine to safety. Mr. Stanbaugh said that Mr. Wright had received a Purple Heart and either a Bronze or Silver Star.

I had always liked and respected Mr. Wright prior to hearing that story but after that I thought he was the toughest guy I had ever known. He was also our swimming coach. And when the boys went to the pool we swam in our jocks and nothing else. It was always a pretty good fight to see who got the center lanes. At all costs you didn't want one of the outside lanes. If you were loafing or screwing off while swimming back and forth, Mr. Wright would pop you on the backside with a leather lanyard on which he carried his whistle. He was accurate and we nicknamed him "Lash LaRue" after the old Western movie star who carried a bull whip.

The last time I saw Mr. Wright, I had graduated from high school and had gotten married and joined the Houston Police Department. I was at the weight room at the YMCA on Bellaire Blvd. in Houston. Mr. Wright was lifting weights and we had a really nice visit. So when I hear about a coach at any level, I tend to compare them with Mr. Wright. A good coach and a great man.

MORE STUFF:

I just watched a video which was taken at an office of ACORN. It was evidently taken with a phone video camera. A guy playing the role of a pimp, and a girl playing the role of a prostitute went into one of the ACORN offices and were requesting financial help to purchase a house where they could import illegal alien females to turn tricks and basically they wanted to open a brothel. Of course the ACORN representative gave assistance and told them how to get around certain legal barricades and in short was willing and able to help these to people set up an illegal prostitution ring using young illegal alien imported girls.

Let's see now. Who do we know in the federal government who was an attorney for ACORN at one time? Who could it be? I've almost got his name on the tip of my tongue. I just can't remember his name but I do know that the democrats/socialists consider him to be the most articulate and intelligent human on earth.

It never ceases to amaze me when listening to the radio and some of the local commercials are aired. Some of them are fairly well done and some of them are pretty insulting. But I was listening to one which was a commercial for a local restaurant. This place allegedly serves some very exotic dishes and the owner, I guess, was speaking about their world class chef and some of the specialties. None of them sounded very appetizing to me but one of their specialties was: ARTICHOKE and SPINACH STUFFED FLOUNDER. Now while I do like flounder broiled or fried, stuffing it with artichoke and spinach didn't trip my taste buds. I had to wonder if a Compost Salad was served with it.

And speaking of artichokes and spinach which are both not eatable, I believe that the crap the liberals are trying to shove down our throats would taste much worse.

Anyway, that's all the damage I can do this week. I had made some notes on some additions to our prayer list and lost it. So if you made a request and it isn't on there, let me know.

DO NOT FORGET TO FLY YOUR AMERICAN FLAG TOMORROW. REMEMBER HOW WE ALL FELT ON THAT DAY. AND PRAY THAT WE ARE NOT THE VICTIMS OF ANOTHER ATTACK DURING THIS ADMINISTRATION.

August 26th, 2009 DEATHS/LISE/INVESTIGATION

Wednesday - August 26, 2009

Greetings once again from the West Texas Headquarters Of Rabid Right Wing Jingoistic Extremists Who Possess A Mob Mentality.

We finally returned from a trip to Chicago and I was approximately eight days without television and I learned that I actually had not missed all that much since the liberals/socialists were acting just as they had prior to our departure.

Before I go any further I would like to express my condolences to the families of two people who passed away within the past two weeks.

The first is Faye Joyce (Kitten) Winthrope who was the wife of Jeff Winthrope. As you might remember, Kitten has been on our prayer list for a number of weeks. She passed away on August 16th after a long illness. She and Jeff had been married for 58 years. The resided in San Antonio, Texas.

The second is Mr. Elmer Kelton who passed away at age 83 and lived in San Angelo, Texas. Mr. Kelton was a best selling author of over 40 books with many of them being best sellers. On several occasions he was awarded the Spur Award for the best Western novel of the year. I heard Mr. Kelton speak on a couple of occasions and he had lived a very interesting life. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times at book signings at a local book store. He was a real gentleman and will be missed.

LIES AND INVESTIGATION

Several months back, Barack Hussein Obama told the American people that he wanted to "look forward" and was not interested in re-visiting the question regarding enhanced interrogations of terrorist suspects held at Guantanamo. And of course, since he is the President of the United States, the American people believed him at his word. Well, that is some Americans did. I along with many others were not buying into his false promises (lies).

Yet this past week, we learn that Attorney General Eric Holder is opening an investigation into this very matter. What is wrong with this picture? Who works for who? It seems as if Attorney General Eric Holder was APPOINTED to his position by Barack Hussein Obama. Now this gives rise to a couple of questions:

1) Is Barack Hussein Obama lying to the American people?

2) Is Attorney General Eric Holder so powerful that he can disobey orders from the President?

3) Is this just another sleight of hand move by the Obama Administration to take our attention away from the Universal Health Care and Cap and Trade questions?

4) Should we believe ANYTHING Barack Hussein Obama says?

5) How will this affect members of our intelligence gathering community? Will they still be effective with the threat of being investigated by the Attorney General?

6) Does the H1N1 (Swine Flu) warning issued this past week by the federal government to be taken seriously or is this another lie to take our attention away from the real goals of the Obama Administration?

7) Could all of this attention directing behavior be meant to get us watching and thinking about several major items while the Obama Administration and the liberals/socialists try to lip some legislation by the American people which will infringe their Second Amendment rights?

Along these same lines, the administration this past week or so has been completely denying many of the items which we have been told are contained in the House version of Universal Health Care. This morning I got a brochure in the mail from my Congressman and in this brochure, the following items are pointed out:

1) Congressional Budget Office Director, Douglas Elmendorf, testified that the healthcare overhaul WOULD NOT reduce the long-term costs facing the government and in fact EXPANDS the federal responsibility for healthcare costs.

2) New bureaucracies will decide what treatments your doctor can prescribe. The more expensive the treatment, the less likely a bureaucrat will authorize it.

3) New income taxes on individuals, small businesses and employers will fund the government run plan. The top income tax rate is expected to reach 45% by 2012.

4) The government will mandate employers purchase insurance for employees or face hefty fines.

I keep hearing that there are no "Death Panels" but that this legislation will allow us to have end-of-life discussions with our physicians at NO CHARGE.

Funny, but I somehow do not foresee us being able to take up our physician's time for free. And for that matter, during my regular visits to the doctor, what would prevent me from asking questions regarding this subject? Is the government going to tape our conversations? If not, how in the hell will they know what my doctor and I discuss?

And if a bureaucrat or a group of bureaucrats or a team of bureaucrats or a flock of bureaucrats or a herd of bureaucrats or a panel of bureaucrats in any way at all must review any treatment or medication which might be prescribed for me by my doctor, then you can call that group anything you wish BUT they will be in a position to either give or deny approval for said treatment or drug.

And it seems as if everyone is doing some type of poll on this subject and almost all of them arrive at the answer that 85% of Americans want things to remain as they are and want the government to leave the system as it is. So I guess what the Obama Administration is telling us is that they are going to go all out to please 15% of our population.

Then I recall a speech given by then President Lyndon B. Johnson and I believe that this was in about 1964 or 1965. I will never forget one line in that speech when President Lyndon B. Johnson told the American people that; "This old stuff about Majority Rule is out the window." When I heard this, I realized then that our government was way too powerful and that the American people had better wake up and see what was happening. Needless to say, I had NO USE for Lyndon B. Johnson from that moment on.

So as you can all see, our federal government has not significantly changed since Lyndon B. Johnson made that statement. They have only succeeded in taking more power away from the American people.

This has gone on long enough.

Along this subject of LIES, I was listening to the radio while on our trip to Chicago and heard one of the elected officials answering some questions from a reporter. At the time I was driving about 70 MPH and could not write this down word-for-word and I don't recall who this elected mutt was but he made a statement to this effect:

"Most legislators are criticized all the time even though most of them work UNSELFISHLY to do their best for us."

Now if that doesn't qualify as a whopper, then nothing does.

DEATHS:

Within the past couple of weeks we have watched the cable news channels who insisted on belaboring the news regarding the death of Michael Jackson. Then after Michael was buried we have been subjected to repeated stories about the cause of his death being something other than natural. Then, finally we were treated to the news that his death had been ruled a homicide. Of course the first story I heard was on FOX and I believe that it was reported by Shepard Smith and of course Shep got it wrong and said that Michael Jackson's death had been ruled a MURDER. What's the difference, the residents of the "People's Republic of Austin" are asking?

Now I am going to explain this so that perhaps even the residents of the "Freedom Loving Worker's Province of San Francisco" can understand. First there are a couple of things you need to know:

All Murders are Homicides.

BUT

All Homicides are NOT Murder.

To have a murder one must generally have either some degree of intent or commit an act so inherently dangerous that a death is likely to result or a death results when the perpetrator is engaged in committing certain felony crimes.

More than likely the death of Michael Jackson will be eventually classified as a Negligent Homicide or a Manslaughter. I am not really up to date on the California Penal Code.

Now in the complete case of overkill regarding the death of "The King of Pop" there are some who are advocating nominating Michael for, now get ready for this, The Nobel Peace Prize. Hell, might as well since the Nobel Prizes have pretty much lost their glitter with Yasser Arafat, Jimmy Carter, and Al Gore receiving various Nobel awards.

Speaking of Shepard Smith, I have just been listening to him speaking about the death of Edward Kennedy. Now before I go on, I must say that Edward Kennedy's family is saddened by his death. I am sure that many of his friends are saddened as well. But let us not elevate him to Sainthood just yet. We have also been subjected to fawning over his memory by other members of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House. I also heard a small audio clip of Senator John McCain giving us his feelings on the matter. I offer my prayers to his family but removing him from the Varmint's list is all that I can do at the moment. All they are playing now are excerpts from old Kennedy speeches.

I hate to see anyone stricken with the horrible disease which claimed Edward Kennedy's life. I have several very close friends who have died or are stricken with this terrible disease.

But let us not forget that the Lockerbie Bomber who was recently released from a prison in Scotland was also stricken with cancer. Apparently the families of those who were killed in that bombing did not share the same degree of sorrow as did the governments of Scotland and England. And when the media reported that the government of Scotland did not want to see this murdering bastard "Die in a foreign land", the thought occurred to me that most of those people who lost their lives in the bombing "Died in a foreign land." I guess what I am saying is that Scotland and England have crapped in their saddle blanket as far as I'm concerned.

STUFF:

A couple of weeks back I was watching an afternoon news program featuring Shepard Smith. Shep advised us in the viewing audience that Judge Sonia Sotomayor had been confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice. Why not let it drop there? Shep then decided that those of us in the great American uninformed had evidently been asleep and were not in possession of this next bit of information. Shep felt duty bound to tell us that Judge Sonia Sotomayor was the FIRST HISPANIC SUPREME COURT JUSTICE and that she had been appointed by the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

So I say to Rupert Murdoch, owner of FOX News, GIVE US A BREAK. Please concentrate on some actual news and get off all this political correct horse crap.

I also just heard on FOX News that over 4,000 PRISON INMATES had received STIMULUS CHECKS. Boy has the Obama Administration got a firm grasp on things or what?

Yesterday I watched most of a television report on a Town Hall Meeting held in Arizona with Senator John McCain. This was actually a pretty friendly crowd insofar as McCain was concerned and he was really doing well up until he started telling them why he was in favor of closing the terrorist prison facility at Guantanamo. The crowd turned pretty negative when McCain took the same position as Barack Hussein Obama. A little later I also heard an audio clip of John McCain expanding his opinion as to how he believed Barack Hussein Obama was really trying to do the right thing even though he did not agree with everything that Obama was pushing. The crowd did not buy McCain's views on that either. Neither do I. I must say that I believe John McCain is a very brave and tough individual. But I must also say that I believe that he has been in Washington too long and is more a part of the problem than he is part of the solution. He is dangerously close to being added to the Varmint's List.

Of course watching the town hall meetings featuring Arlen Specter are great entertainment. I will be very surprised if we will be looking at him as a U.S. Senator much longer. Can't come soon enough.

QUOTES:

"Just as magicians know that the secret of some of their tricks is to distract the audience, so politicians know that the secret of many political tricks is to distract the public with scapegoats........The insurance industry is currently his favorite distraction as scapegoats, after he has tried to demonize doctors without much success."............. THOMAS SOWELL

"Deception is not an incidental aspect of this medical care legislation, but is at the very heart of it."............... THOMAS SOWELL

" As for a DEATH PANEL, no politician would ever use that phrase when trying to get a piece of legislation passed. END OF LIFE CARE under the GUIDANCE of SOME INDEPENDENT GROUP sounds so much nicer --- and these are the terms President Obama used in an interview with the New York Times back on April 14th."................. THOMAS SOWELL

"He said, 'the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill out there.' He added: 'It is difficult to imagine the country making those decisions just through the normal political channels. That is why you have to have some independent group that can give you guidance.'".................. THOMAS SOWELL

** Folks, those quotes came from a very intelligent man who seems to have a very good grasp on the strategies of the Obama Administration. I believe we need to pay very close attention and look beyond what these people tell us. I spite of what Bill O'Reill says regarding giving the President a break on some of these things, I believe we need to fight him and his corrupt administration every step of the way.**

VARMINTS:

Barack Hussein Obama; Nancy Pelosi (D-CA); Harry Reid (D-NV); Diane Feinstein (D-CA); Barbara Boxer (D-CA); Maxine Waters (D-CA); Barney Frank (D-MA); Chris Dodd (D-CT); Arlen Specter -(D-PA); Attorney General Eric Holder; Olympia Snowe - (R-ME); Henry Waxman (D-CA); Joseph Biden; Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX); "Fat Jack" Murtha (D-PA); Former President Jimmy Carter; George Soros; Keith Olberman (CNN); Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano; White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel; San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsome; Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger; Chuck Schumer (D-NY); Richard Durbin (D-IL); John Kerry (D-MA); Hillary Clinton; Bill Clinton; White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs; Patrick Leahy (D-VT); Bobby Rush (D-IL); Colin Powell; Reverend Al Sharpton; Reverend Jesse Jackson; Richard Lugar (R-IN); Lindsey Graham (R-SC); Susan Estrich; Al Gore; Charles Rangel (D-NY); John Conyers (D-MI); Steny Hoyer (D-MD); Al Franken (D-MN); Judge Sonia Sotomayor; Linda Sanchez (D-CA); Geraldo Rivera (FOXNews); Bill Maher (HBO); Shepard Smith (FOXNews); Chris Matthews (CNN); ACLU; ACORN; CODE PINK; LULAC; PETA; New York Times; Los Angeles Times; Southern Poverty Law Center

MORE STUFF:

Our trip to Chicago was very enjoyable. We got to visit with some people whom we knew in Hobbs, New Mexico. However, I did not have to spend but a very few minutes in the Chicago metropolitan area to know that I had done a very intelligent thing when I moved away from Houston in 1973. I do not believe I could put up with the traffic and the noise of a big city again.

One thing I did notice. On our way to Chicago while driving through Southern Illinois, we saw some really beautiful farms with beautiful corn fields. Along the highway, there were numerous signs advocating firearms ownership and Second Amendment Rights. I was most surprised to see this in the home state of Barack Hussein Obama.

On our way home we did get to go through the Bass Pro Warehouse in Springfield, Missouri. I really thought Missouri was a pretty state.

After we cleared Oklahoma we went through Wichita Falls, Texas and took a back road and went to Archer City, Texas. Now for those of you residing in the Gulag of Massachusetts, Archer City, Texas is the home town of Larry McMurtry, who wrote Lonesome Dove and Streets of Laredo. It is also where the movie "The Last Picture Show" was filmed. Mr. McMurtry also wrote that book. I intend to make another trip there since everything was closed as it was after 5PM. But instead of taking the main roads back to Abilene we took some back roads and saw some really pretty stuff and some interesting spots that we want to visit again.

Anyway, it is good to be back home and get back on schedule.

FOOTBALL SEASON IS ONE WEEK AWAY. And when I say football season, I am not talking about the million dollar whiners who play on Sundays. I am talking about Texas High School Football. I can also watch college ball but those high school kids are the real players.

See'ya next week

August 11th, 2009 NO LONGER CONFUSED/VACATION


Thanks to several folks on the mail list, I believe the confusion felt by many of us, regarding the Hannity Special, has been answered. The e-mail which most all of us received advising us of a very special Sean Hannity Show which would reveal new information on Barack Hussein Obama was actually a re-circulation of an e-mail from August 2008, which was prior to the election. And from all accounts the original e-mail in 2008 was a rumor.

And when I learned this, I tried to think back about a year ago and do seem to remember a report that this highly revealing program would be aired on a Sean Hannity FOX Special. And of course it did not materialize then either.

Anyway I did receive at least two e-mails from people who said that their local cable companies did run ads on the Hannity Show which we all thought would be shown last Sunday.

So apparently there never was a show of this type in the mill. Of course we have all been fooled in the past regarding some program which would reveal heretofore unreported information and it was something which was either old news or something which was blown completely out of proportion.

I have stayed up past my bed time in order to catch something to be aired on "On The Record" with "Greta Van Susteren", and as you know "Nothing gets by Greta", only to be disappointed to find out that it was just more of the same, with the same people saying the same things which they had said a week before.

Actually I have come to find out that quite a bit gets by Greta.

Anyway, I thought I would let you all know what I had learned up to this point. We, at least a bunch of us, have been had again.

I am getting ready to leave early tomorrow morning to go on vacation for a week or so and I will not have access to a computer.

During my absence:

Rick Perry will remain Governor of Texas

John Cornyn will still be one of our U.S. Senators

Mac Brown will still be in charge of the University of Texas football team

Bill O'Reilly will still be in charge of The Factor

"Fat Teddy" will still be a fat mutt

Nancy Pelosi will remain a bug eyed heifer

Harry Reid will continue to be a wimp

The Universal Health Care legislation will still be a piece of crap

So as you can all see, our vacation will probably not really be a pivotal moment in the big picture.

We should be back sometime late next Wednesday and I will again have access to a computer.

Hope you all have a great week and earlier this morning identical letters expressing the displeasure of the American people were sent to Congressman Mike Conaway; Senators John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison; Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama. I'm sure that the ones to Harry Reid and Barack Obama will carry a bunch of weight. But perhaps if all of their computers, phones, and written mail reaching epic proportions might get through to a couple of folks. Not Reid, he is goofy. And of course Barack Hussein Obama is the world's most intelligent and articulate human

Also, if you would, please hold ALL E-MAIL for this time period.

And remember the folks on our prayer list and all of our men and women serving in the U.S. Military.

I will be back on line probably by Thursday, August 20th.

Thanks

Jim Murphy
San Angelo, Texas

August 5th, 2009 HOSTAGES/CLUNKERS/RECEPTIONS

Wednesday - August 5, 2009

Greetings once again from West Texas. Home of The Vast Conspiracy Of Rabid Right Wing Extremists. At least this is what we are being called this week by the Left Wing Loonies.

HOSTAGES:

The good news, of course, is that the two reporters who were held hostage by North Korea were released yesterday. Of course, behind every silver lining, there is a dark cloud. The dark cloud in this instance is that we must be subjected to days of fawning over former President Bill Clinton. Of course the first reports were that good ol' President Bill just went to North Korea on his own and that the Obama administration had nothing to do with it. Now I would like a show of hands from everyone who buys this crap. If you do, then you qualify as an Assistant White House Press Secretary and personal advisor to Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

I am very glad that the two young ladies are back safe and sound in the United States. One must wonder though if their greatest danger might not have been flying back to the United States in the same aircraft as former President Bill Clinton. Just a thought.

Of course there have been many stories put out as to how these two ladies were captured and taken prisoner by the North Korean authorities. One of the first reports was that the two ladies ACCIDENTALLY crossed the border between China and North Korea. This got me to thinking and I started checking my world atlases and each and every one of them show that the entire Northern border between North Korea and China is THE YALU RIVER. So I guess the crack staffs at the news agencies wanted us to believe that the ladies ACCIDENTALLY crossed a river. The question then arose in my mind as to how one goes about ACCIDENTALLY crossing a river. I'm not saying that it is impossible but highly improbable.

Another story then was put out that the two ladies MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN CHINA when they were seized by North Korean troops. I am sure that we might never know the real facts behind this matter but I am glad that the two ladies are back home with their families.

BUT, please spare me the stories on how brave and how heroic former President Bill Clinton was in this whole matter. The Obama administration can deny all they want about not making some kind of a deal with North Korea to secure the release of these two ladies but at this stage of the game the Obama has about as much credibility as, well Bill Clinton himself.

Then there was the incident where Iran took 3 Americans hostage after they, once again, ACCIDENTALLY crossed the border from Iraq into Iran. According to one Associated Press article;"The Americans--free-lance journalist Shane Bauer, his girlfriend Sarah Shourd and Joshua Fattal --- were hiking in a PICTURESQUE region of Iraq's northern Kurdish region near the Iranian border that is known for lush vegetation, pistachio groves, and fruit trees.

Now I have never been to Iraq nor Iran and the area might indeed be PICTURESQUE but I don't think it would be among my top three choices to go hiking. As a matter of fact, I am not sure it would make my top three hundred choice hiking spots. Probably wouldn't even make the list of the top three thousand. The point being that screwing around in an area which borders a hostile nation, not only hostile to the United States but hostile to Iraq as well, cannot be viewed by many as using very good judgement.


Once again, it really pisses me off to see Americans being taken as hostages by nations who are not our friends, but we must stop and think for a moment. Just say that the two ladies actually did cross into North Korea ACCIDENTALLY. And say that the three hikers actually did cross over into Iran ACCIDENTALLY. Wouldn't be the same as if an Iranian with questionable background ACCIDENTALLY crossed over into the United States from Mexico? Or Canada? I would hope that our authorities would hold these people until they could be checked out. Now I realize that Iran and North Korea both have reputations for being a bit cross with their prisoners, and if that fact is determined then I think our response should be swift and tough.

But let's face it folks, the North Koreans and the Iranians both view our present President as weak and are taking every opportunity to figuratively speaking to kick sand in his face. And what's more, this isn't the end of this kind of treatment for Americans traveling abroad.

CLUNKERS:

OK. Our government came up with the magnificent "CASH FOR CLUNKERS" program. Some of the elected mutts will tell us that it is really a great program and is working just as it should. A few others will tell us that it is a disaster. You are free to make up your own mind but when the program runs out of cash on about the FOURTH DAY of its existence AND the elected mutts want to throw another TWO BILLION dollars into doing the same thing then I can only conclude that these idiots should never be allowed to spend another red cent of taxpayer's money. Not only was this Cash for Clunkers program not planned very well, not a single one of the elected mutts had the slightest clue as to how long funds would last.

Is this the type of fiscal management we expect from the elected officials? Must be as many of them have been in their elected positions for many years. If this is an example of their planning abilities, how on God's Green Earth can they expect us to turn over our health care plans to their incompetent hands?

Of course many of the auto sales outlets were smiling as it enabled them to sell new automobiles to many people who cannot really afford them.

The Obama administration and the Bush administration before it have really fumbled the ball when it comes to getting involved in private enterprise. Let's see now. The government has pretty well taken over the banking industry; they have taken over the auto industry; they are attempting to take over the health care insurance industry as well as the energy industry. If they succeed, what will be left? It is sort of hard to tell about who owns who insofar as the media goes. Does the mainstream media control the government? Or does the government control the mainstream media? Either way it is not in the best interest of the American people.

RECEPTIONS:

AH, BUT WAIT! All might not be lost. This past week as the elected mutts returned to their home states and were greeted by their constituents, the term "Barbarians At The Gate" came to mind. These elected officials were greeted in many instances with somewhat irritated voters. As a matter of fact, a couple of them sort of reminded me of one of the old "horror movies" where the normally docile Transylvanian villagers were transformed into an angry mob at the gates of Doctor Frankenstein's castle. The only difference in this weeks meetings with the elected Congressmen and Senators is that the angry people didn't have pitchforks and torches........... yet.

I watched a couple of them on television and listened to audio re-plays of several more. The plot on all of them were the same; Someone in the audience would ask a question of one of these elected incompetents and it would be one which required a YES or NO answer. Of course the elected mutt would begin his/her answer with this, "The Obama administration is working hard to try to come up with a plan which will be a benefit for ALL AMERICANS. And of course Sentor Arlen Specter was trying to get some support by telling the folks that they had to make decisions very quickly.

Let me tell ALL of you elected mutts. You CANNOT come up with a plan which will benefit ALL Americans. A plan of that nature would be so expensive that I don't imagine even the world's most intelligent and articulate human (that would be Barack Hussein Obama to all of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco) can count that high.

I have heard the result of several surveys/polls in which approximately 80% of the Americans are SATISFIED with the health coverage they have AT THE PRESENT TIME. Now even for some of the prisoners residing in "The Freedom Loving Worker's Gulag of Massachusetts" that would indicate that no more than 20% were not satisfied. Now get out your calculators and see which number is greater- - - - - - OK. By now you should have determined that 80% is MORE/GREATER than 20%. Ask yourself if this is true then WHY is this idiotic health care package so damned important to those currently in power in Washington? Easy, the answer is POWER and CONTROL.

So why not put it to a vote to the people? One good reason as was evidenced by the reception many of the elected mutts received when they got back home and spoke to the voters who elected them to begin with.

Lloyd Doggett who is a Democrat Texas Congressman from a district which includes part of Travis County (Austin). It was fairly obvious that the people who attended his rally were less than enthralled with the proposed universal health legislation. When he was not answering their questions, the crowd began shouting "Just Say No" and repeated it over and over. Of course being a good democrat, Doggett wrote it off as just a bunch of Republicans trying to stir up problems.

Well if that is true, then those angry Republicans must have had access to a squadron of SR-71 Blackbirds since at just about the same time Senator Arlen Specter and Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius ran into an almost identical group in Philadelphia at which time Senator Arlen Specter began trying to tell the crowd that they just didn't understand that Senators had to make decisions very quickly which he was trying to use as an excuse for not reading the legislation.

The look on Arlen Specter's face was classic. I don't imagine that the good folks in Pennsylvania have let ol' Arlen know their true feelings in quite a while.

Then I watched another video of another group at which some elected squack was running into the same problem and she had several people in the audience tell her exactly what their views were and of course this woman (sorry I can't remember her name or state) had no answers for the group. But that is not much of a surprise since NONE OF THEM HAVE ANSWERS.

Then last night on one of the FOX News shows I saw one of the normal contributors make a statement that the American people must always remember that these Senators and Congressmen are elected officials and should be treated with the respect due their position. Well, I think yesterday, those elected mutts were treated with the respect which was due them, and that is damn little. Now perhaps I am a bit old fashioned but I don't give the first damn about the position held by someone who is pissing down my back and telling me not to worry that it is just raining.

Ah then of course you had White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs blow off these irate people as just a bunch of Republicans who took part in organized demonstrations that were purely political in nature. OK. If that is true then I must take the same view as Rush Limbaugh. "'Bout Damn Time". In one sentence the mainstream media tells us that the Republican Party is "FRACTURED'; SPLIT DOWN THE MIDDLE"; and several other descriptions along the same lines. Then the next sentence they tell us that the Republicans designed these highly organized attacks on these poor misunderstood Democrat bozos. Sorry Robert, you can't have it both ways. Of course perhaps I am being a bit harsh on Robert Gibbs. I seem to forget that he apparently has an I.Q. somewhere between a paper clip and a sticky note. And I am not entirely sure that everyone at one of those Town hall Meetings was a Republican. I strongly imagine there were some Democrats; Libertarians along with Republicans. Perhaps it was just a little opportunity to show that there indeed are more conservatives than liberals.

Getting back to this 80% over 20%, I will never forget back in the early 1960's when then President Lyndon B. Johnson was making a television speech to the nation and he made the statement the "This old stuff about the majority ruling is out the window." Well that pretty much opened my eyes as to politics at a national level and it his gone downhill from there. Apparently our elected national officials are more interested in the 20% than they are the 80%. But in reality, they are not interested as much in the 20% as they are about lining their own pockets and staying in power. So I have a suggestion. Why don't those of us in the 80% category get out and vote these incompetent lying mutts out of office?

"Many people hoped that the election of a black President of the United States would mark our entering a 'post-racial era',when we could finally put some ugly aspects of our history behind us.

They benefit politically, financially, and socially.".............. THOMAS SOWELL

"The racial-profiling issue is a great vote-getter. And if it polarizes the society, that is a price that politicians are willing to pay in order to get votes.

HISTORY:

This week instead of giving out historical facts which happened during this particular week in our past. Instead I am going to relate some historical facts I learned last week end in Hobbs, New Mexico. My wife and I attended the 90th birthday party of our neighbor, Bob McKelvy. We lived across the street from Bob and his family for 30 years. Bob lived in their home prior to us moving to Hobbs and is still living in the same house. I don't guess you could ask for a better neighbor than were the McKelvys.

I knew Bob had been a Prisoner of War during the Second World War. I was told that he had been taken prisoner in the Philippines in 1942 and was on the Bataan Death March. Of course I never asked Bob any questions about his imprisonment but I knew that every year he attended a reunion of those with whom he served and with whom he was imprisoned during the war years. I know that he never intentionally purchased any products known to be made in Japan.

One of his grand kids found some information and had it posted at Bob's birthday party and I sat there and read it and then went back and read it again and after visiting with some more friends I read it a third time.

In December of 1941 approximately a week prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bob and a bunch more from the Texas 36th Division (Texas National Guard) were aboard the USS Republic bound for the Philippines. They had been at Pearl Harbor to re-fuel their ship. Then they proceeded on their way to the Philippines. They learned of the attack on Pearl Harbor while en route to the Island of Java to re-fuel one last time prior to arrival at the Philippines.

Their ship landed in Java on the same day that Japanese forces landed on another part of the island. Their orders were to try and make it to a certain point where possible rescue attempts could be made. The Dutch forces surrendered rather quickly and many American and Australian troops were on their own.

Bob and a friend took off and were in a region where they were able to steal a chicken to eat. The article said that Bob and his friend were eating the chicken when a voice told them in perfect English that they were surrounded and were prisoners. The Japanese Commander approached them and told them to go ahead and finish their chicken as that would probably be the last decent meal they would have for a very long time. They finished the chicken and Bob said that the Japanese Commander was absolutely correct as that was the last decent meal they had until the end of the war. The article said that the Japanese Commander told them that he had been educated in the United States and went home to Japan for a visit when the war broke out and of course he was expected to serve in the Japanese military. Bob said that this officer treated them really well which was not the case for the remainder of the imprisonment. They took Bob and his friend along with a number of other American and Australian troops. They were split up and Bob ended up spending the remainder of the war in a Japanese prison camp in Burma.

It did not give a bunch of details on the imprisonment nor would I ever ask this good man anything about it. All I know is that for thirty years I was privileged to have a real hero for a neighbor. He was not only a hero, he is also one of the kindest men I have ever known.

Beside going through the Japanese prison camp during the war, Bob's wife, Vivian was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a number of years back. She had to be placed in a nursing home and was confined there for seventeen years until she finally passed away several years back. Bob never missed a week that he did not visit her at least once and of course she was in really bad shape and comatose for a good while prior to her passing on.

She was a great friend to us also and she never missed a chance to bake us something which we really liked. She made perhaps the best pecan pie on the planet and I never had a bite of one of her cakes that was not exceptional.

Anyway, when I used to think of tough guys, I would always think of various guys with whom I had grown up, or some of the policemen I had served with for 45 years but after knowing and learning of the complete life story of this good man, Bob McKelvy, I believe he was the toughest and nicest person I have ever known.

Incidentally at 90 he still was sharp as a tack and looked to be in good health and good spirits.

Also while in Hobbs we did get to visit with some old friends for a short while. I called some who weren't home and some were gone out of town. Every time I return to Hobbs, I realize how much I miss all of those folks. Of course I would miss the folks here in San Angelo also just as I do our old friends and family in Houston.

MORE STUFF:

The other day I was watching something on FOX News when someone was interviewing New York Democrat Congressman and Pure Varmint, Charles Rangel. Of course they discussed the Universal Health Care Legislation and in defending this completely insane piece of crap, Congressman/Varmint Charles Rangel advised that the United States is the ONLY leading industrial country that DOES NOT have National Health Care legislation.

Let's examine this for a moment. For at least 65 years the United States has been the leading industrial nation on the planet. The United States has had the top military with the best equipment along with the best economy and all the time did not have a National Health Care Package (Socialized/ Government Run Medical Legislation). I believe that overall we have the best doctors, the best medical centers, the best treatment in the world. And just imagine, we did all this without the government taking control of our lives. So let's suppose that Varmint Rangel is correct. Then I must ask this question: Why change? Why involve our federal government in our everyday lives to any greater length than they already are? While the iron is hot, call; e-mail; write; visit; send smoke signals; send drum messages; contact your elected Senators and Congressmen/women and let them know that if they vote FOR this idiotic health care legislation OR the cap and trade legislation that you will vote for their opponent at every opportunity. They need to feel the heat.

I know that I have written in the past about some of the wild life which visit our neighborhood on a regular basis, and I am sure I have written about an absolute huge orange male cat who rules the roost insofar as felines go in this end of the world. I don't know how much this critter weighs but he has a head larger than a softball and he is short hair and has one ear which has been chewed up in various battles. He reminds you of one of those African lions you see in the films. He never seems to get in much of a hurry as he apparently fears nothing.

Yesterday morning, prior to daylight, I went out my front door to get the morning liberal rag. I saw some movement and looked across the street and it was "Big Orange". As usual he walked out of my neighbor's yard and into the street and began a leisurely stroll down the street toward the ranch land at the end of our street. He paused and gave me a look just to let me know that he would be more than willing to bite my head off if I got stupid acting, then went on about his business,

This morning while finishing my walk down a paved alley at the end of my street and I saw a man out tending to something in the grass. It was a regular size orange and white cat with a collar and tag. I stopped and looked at what was going on and the man said that this cat was his cat and that while not seriously injured, something had chewed one of his cat's ears down and it was obviously shredded pretty good. I immediately knew who the guilty party was. "Big Orange". What surprised me was that he allowed this domestic feline to retain his collar. I just imagine "Big Orange" has a collection of cat/dog collars in his den.

Well I guess I'd better get busy packing as we are leaving on another trip next Wednesday and will be gone for about a week.

Oh, incidentally, don't be fooled by all this "Blue Dog Democrat" crap. Some would have us believe that the "Blue Dogs" are CONSERVATIVE Democrats. 'Taint So. Most of them are just a little less liberal than the party leaders; Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, Kennedy, etc. I am sure that there are some members of the Democrat party who are holdovers from the old Democrats but I am not sure there are any in office at the present time.

Later

July 29, 2009 STUPID / OSAMA / RAHM

Wednesday - July 29, 2009

Greetings once again from the West Texas Headquarters For Jingoistic Vast Right Wing Conspirators Who Purposely Act Stupidly On Occasion.

STUPID:

Last Wednesday the thought struck me that I wish I had waited for the world's most intelligent and articulate human, Barack Hussein Obama, to have completed his 700th prime time speech to the masses. (Now for those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, I realize that Barack Hussein Obama has not actually made 700 prime time speeches. It only feels like it was his 700th speech).

As we all know, the purpose of this speech was to EXPLAIN to the American people just how his new Universal Health Care plan was going to work. The only problem was this; the worlds most intelligent and articulate human FAILED to explain how this idiotic plan was to actually work or help out the people. His speech did nothing more but reinforce what the majority of Americans already knew. The plan WILL NOT help out most Americans and will be cost prohibitive. Then of course after this pitiful excuse for an explanation was finished, the world's most intelligent and articulate human took some questions from the media. Now some of you are probably thinking that the media questions were a bit soft and pointless and even appeared to have been rehearsed. Well I am here to tell you that I thought the same thing. I thought this idiotic piece o' crap legislation is nothing more than a fairly obvious attempt by the federal government in the form of the Obama administration to take more control over our everyday lives. In all appearances it takes away our individual abilities to choose our own medical professionals and depending upon one's age might even take away medical treatments for older Americans.

Then after all these softball questions were posed to the world's most intelligent and articulate human had ended, President Barack Hussein Obama called upon one of the reporters for the final question. Now we had been led to believe that the entire purpose of this dull program was to give the world's most intelligent and articulate human an opportunity to explain the particulars of this health care legislation. HOWEVER, the final question had nothing to do with the health care legislation. No, it was directed at how President Barack Hussein Obama viewed the incident in Cambridge, Massachusetts in which a black Harvard Professor of Black Studies had been arrested by the Cambridge Police Department. Now I don't know why the world's most intelligent and articulate human even offered an answer to this question which was completely off the subject. Bur irregardless of my views, the world's most intelligent and articulate human chose to toss in his views.

Barack Hussein Obama right off the bat said that he did not possess all of the facts in the case, and that Professor Henry Gates was a personal friend of his, but in his opinion the Cambridge Police Department had "ACTED STUPIDLY". He further went on to expound on his (the President's) opinions regarding racial profiling and indicated that this perhaps was the case in this incident. OK, let's examine this line of reasoning; The defendant was a black Harvard professor who was a personal friend of the President. Barack Hussein said that he did not know all of the facts regarding this incident. Barack Hussein Obama obviously stood ready to immediately take the side of his friend and appeared to be even more ready to say that the arresting Officer had acted stupidly.

Then a couple of days later when the facts of the case became public, it appeared that if there were any racial profiling present on that evening in Cambridge, Massachusetts, it more than likely was done by Black Studies Professor Henry Gates. My question still remains. Why would ANY PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES EVEN GET INVOLVED IN A PUBLIC DISCUSSION REGARDING THIS INCIDENT?

Of course after this whole incident was out in the open and President Barack Hussein Obama became aware that he had probably "crapped in his breakfast", he immediately began his attempt to smooth matters over and in a somewhat amateurish attempt to tamp down a national uproar over his own racially motivated statements and the obvious racial statements by Professor Gates, further dug himself in a deeper hole. What some of the Democrat/Liberal/Socialist media have called a "Public Apology" actually was nothing more than Barack Hussein Obama acknowledge that he had used "unfortunate words" in declaring that the Cambridge Police had "acted stupidly" in arresting Professor Gates. The world's most intelligent and articulate human acknowledged, "I could've calibrated those words differently." Perhaps the President should first look up the meaning of the word "Calibrate". According to Webster the word CALIBRATE means: 1) to determine the caliber of 2) to fix or correct the graduations of a measuring instrument.

So as you can see, perhaps the world's most intelligent and articulate human might need to refresh his memory on the meanings of certain words. Then instead of dropping the matter there, the world's most intelligent and articulate human decided to invite the arresting Officer, Sergeant James Crowley AND Professor Gates to the White House to have a beer. This sort of makes me wonder if he will invite Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Kim Jong Il, and a few others of their ilk for a beer at the White House. He did admit as sort of an afterthought that perhaps Professor Gates had "overreacted". Let me make sure I have this straight: Sergeant Crowley was suspected of RACIAL PROFILING and ACTING STUPIDLY while Professor Gates had merely OVERREACTED. Yep, that sure sounds like the world's most intelligent and articulate human is willing to treat Sergeant Crowley and Professor Gates with an unbiased eye.

However we should not be overly concerned. Not when the world's most intelligent and articulate human in the person of Barack Hussein Obama tells all of us lesser beings that this whole matter was a TEACHABLE MOMENT.

Now that almost a week has passed, this story is still in the news. So in the long rung, who "ACTED STUPIDLY"? The Cambridge Police? No. Professor Gates? Perhaps. President Barack Hussein Obama? Looks like we have a winner. But if you really wanted to get a really intelligent take on the whole matter you needed to listen to the White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, who incidentally appears to possess an I.Q. about 20 points less than pan of Kitty Litter. I have been watching Press Secretaries since JFK and I have seen some who were good, some who were bad, a couple who were exceptional. But Gibbs, in my opinion is the worst I have ever seen. But then again, competence does not appear to be high on the list of priorities for an Obama appointee.

Also for someone who was purported as being a person who "Transcends Race", this President is giving a really good impression of someone who plays race for his own benefit about as well as anyone I have seen in quite a while. Actually he is much better at it than Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

RAHM:

I listened to a news report earlier this week which said that White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel had "Called in the Blue Dog Democrats for a meeting". This meeting was allegedly for the purpose of Rahm Emanuel calling these Blue Dogs on them not supporting the President's proposed health care legislation. This struck me as a bit unusual. Since when does the White House Chief of Staff have the authority to call in an ELECTED U.S. CONGRESSMAN OR SENATOR for any reason? Wonder if any of the so called Blue Dogs had the balls to tell ol' Rahm to stuff it? Probably not.

Actually it appears that an Obama appointee has much more power in our federal government that do the elected mutts. If those elected officials are willing to take that kind of treatment then they deserve whatever treatment is handed out to them by the world's most intelligent and articulate human or one of his toadies.

If the majority of the American people are willing to accept this type of system then they deserve it. BUT THE REST OF US DO NOT.

Everyone had better take a really close look at this health care legislation. And if you do not want to be in control of your medical care on matters like choosing your own doctors, or choosing what type of treatment you would like to receive then you need to be writing, calling, and e-mailing your elected Congressmen and Senators to let them know how you feel.

If you are the type who wants to sit back and accept whatever scraps the Obama administration is willing to toss out to you, then GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!

OSAMA:

A report was received a couple of days back that one of the sons of Osama binLaden had been killed in a bombing attack. The report went of to advise us further that the younger binLaden HAD NOT been a primary target in this attack. And that his death was actually just COLLATERAL DAMAGE. COLLATERAL DAMAGE??? If in fact this was a member of team binLaden, then I would call it "A Gift"; "A bonus" or perhaps "Damn good luck". But not collateral damage.

MORE STUFF:

I looked at an article which was an editorial opinion written by the Standard Times Staff. Here are the first couple of lines in the article:

"Not a moment too soon, the Senate has confirmed President Obama's nominee to head the Census Bureau, and now preparations on the critical 2010 national head count can begin in earnest."

Now from reading this sentence, many of you are probably laboring under the impression that perhaps our local paper is being staffed by a bunch of liberal hacks. If this is an example of how your thought process works, then all I can say is that you are all most perceptive. Incidentally the person appointed by the world's most intelligent and articulate human was Robert Groves. I am sure that many of you have heard some horror stories regarding this upcoming census and I am reserving comment until I know for sure how this is going to play out.

Why should any person or publication or reporter be pleased with an Obama appointee? Please look at some of the examples. However I must ask this question regarding the first qualification for an Obama appointee. Do they owe the government back taxes?

I was pretty pleased to see that our Texas Senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted NO on Judge Sonia Sotomayor. It appears as if the only Republican to vote YES on passing Judge Sotomayor for a complete Senate vote was SOUTH CAROLINA LINDSEY GRAHAM. Does the term RINO ring a bell? I sure hope the conservative folks in South Carolina dump this whining wimp the next go round.

A couple of days back I watched a news program in which the Southern Poverty Law Center was calling on CNN to fire Lou Dobbs. Lou Dobbs is perhaps the ONLY person on CNN that I can stomach. As you probably have noticed that a couple of them are on the Varmint's List. So since the Southern Poverty Law Center is starting to really show that they are nothing more than an arm of the ACLU, I am prepared to honor them by adding them to the Varmint List. They will be joined by Senator Lindsey Graham.

GOOD NEWS:

Amidst all of the political idiots and their antics my wife and I had a very enjoyable week end. Last Saturday, an old school and Houston P.D. friend and his wife dropped in on their way back home to Hempstead, Texas. We got a chance to visit and go out for Mexican food. Not only are these folks good friends, but Ken's father was a Houston Police Department Detective. Kenneth went on the Police Department. I had spoken with his Dad on several occasions and he was one of the main reasons I decided to choose law enforcement as a career. Kenneth and I ran around big time in high school and participated in some of the more creative school skipping schemes known to man. We were actually probably way more successful than most in this coveted area. On occasion we would get caught and sent to the football coach's office for punishment. We always recall one of the few times we got caught in the act. Kenneth received 5 swats from Coach Pepper. When it came my turn, I was ready for the 5 swats. However, Coach Pepper was a good bit slicker than I had originally thought. He said, "Murphy, I know you have been skipping way more than Smith here, so you get 10 swats. And I got 10 hard ones. But instead of being mad at the unfair treatment at the hands of a school official, I went away thinking that I was still probably 25 or 30 swats ahead.

Then on Sunday we were visited by some new friends from Washington State, Dean and Ann. I have been communicating with Dean via e-mail for a good while due to him receiving my weekly letter via a forward from another e-mail buddy. We had a good visit and went out to eat a couple of times. They were the 9th and 10th persons whom I have met in person by them coming to or through San Angelo, Texas, and it was all due to this weekly letter. So besides being a good outlet for me to blow off steam, I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting in person 10 people who I would never have met. So I had a great week end and am looking forward to perhaps meeting. And of course I have also had the pleasure of meeting a couple of more people while on vacation in Colorado while I was in their home state. Anyway spending time with friends, old and new is very important.

Well I guess I had better get on along down the trail. I am feeling an uncontrollable urge to act stupidly. But I guess I had better not. I would not want to do something which might upset the world's most intelligent and articulate human.

Anyway, I would consider it an honor to be on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of villains with Mr. Dobbs.

July 22, 2009 HATCH / PALIN / SANFORD

Wednesday - July 22, 2009

Hello once again from the West Texas Headquarters For The Jingoistic Conspiratorial Right Wing Attack Machine.

SANFORD:

For the past couple of weeks we seem to have been bombarded with every movement; every waking thought; every expenditure of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. So just to clear the air, at least as far as us members of the Conspiratorial Right Wing Attack Machine are concerned, we are all pretty much in the same boat as Rhett Butler in that "Frankly, we don't give a damn". Now I am sure that should I have been a resident of South Carolina I would be out for this clown's head. But when you really look at it, what has he actually done which is any more illegal than the vast majority of our elected officials? He has spent tax dollars for his personal pleasure. Show me a Congressman/woman or Senator who has not eaten at least a small portion of that cake. If the voters of South Carolina have had enough of this bozo then they will force him out or replace him at his next election. The point is, the rest of the country has had enough of this minute by minute coverage of Sanford and his South American babe. ENOUGH!

HATCH:

I caught a little bit of a news story the other day which featured Utah Republican Senator Orin Hatch. Now one might think that with our self centered, egotistical, narcissistic,articulate President and many Democrat/Socialist Representatives and Senators attempting to pass this idiotic Cap and Trade legislation along with a completely unnecessary and socialist Universal Health Care load o' crap bill and adding to that the confirmation of a completely racist and biased Judge, that perhaps Senator Hatch might just accidentally have a few important items on his menu. Ah, but then you would be wrong. Senator Hatch was busy attempting to launch an investigation into the BCS (for those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco that would be the Bowl Championship Series) AND their failure to include, now get ready for this, The University of Utah in one of their major BCS bowls last year.

Now for some of you who are being held hostage in the Gulag of Massachusetts, I would like to point out that the University of Utah was undefeated during the regular football season of 2008. And I might also point out that I am not a huge fan of the BCS and further I believe that the University of Utah should have gotten a bigger bowl than they did. BUT I also realize that we have presently in the White House and in control of BOTH Houses of Congress, the most inept, incompetent, untruthful group of people ever assembled. One must wonder if Senator Hatch is attempting to join the idiotic wing of the Senate. He damn sure doesn't appear to be worried about the real problems facing our nation as a whole. When will our elected officials realize that our country is in big trouble and stop wasting time with BCS matters or steroid use in Major League Baseball.

However, with our Congress, the President, the White House Staff and Department Heads showing us by their action and words that they all possess the IQ of the last lemming off the cliff, perhaps we might all be better off if they would just address the BCS matter and the Baseball Steroid matter full time and leave the governing to the STATES. Quite frankly I believe I would trust South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford ahead of these mutts.

PALIN:

There was a short article in our local liberal rag of a newspaper this past week titled --- Suit: Palin Broke Law Over Juneteenth.

This article went on to explain that Plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit against ALASKA Governor Sarah Palin asked a Federal Judge to declare that she broke state law two years ago when she failed to issue a proclamation for a celebration commemorating the freeing of U.S. slaves. The motion claimed that Governor Palin failed to answer the allegations in the lawsuit by at JUNE NINETEENTH deadline and still has not responded.

Hey! I know that there are some really good people who live in Alaska. Apparently there are some who also have a school zone speed limit I.Q.

Let me go over this once more so that even someone as stupid ad Barack Hussein Obama's press secretary can understand.

On September 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation granting freedom to slaves in any state of the Confederate States of America that did not return to Union control by January 1, 1863. Then on January 1, 1863 President Lincoln issued an additional Executive Order and named the 10 states to which the order would apply. Texas was an exception. Many of the border states either did not have slaves or had pretty much returned to Union control.

The Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves. On June 19th 1865 General Gordon Granger landed in Galveston, Texas and brought the news to the TEXAS slaves of their freedom. Junteenth originally was recognized ONLY IN TEXAS. Then as time went on and we became more politically correct, other states began to recognize June 19th as a day of recognition regarding the freeing of slaves.

But how ALASKA feels like the Governor broke a state law by not issuing a proclamation is way out of the park. The black slaves WERE NOT freed on June 19th of any year. It was just the day that the Texas slaves were notified.

I guess that Governor Palin additionally did not issue a proclamation of support on August 18th either. And we all know that August 18th is the birthday of ABBOT BRUMLEY. What's that, you don't know who Abbot Brumley was? Unbelievable. Better e-mail Barack Hussein Obama and get the answer. After all he knows everything.

Anyway, the group who filed this suit are dumber than stumps and have no concept of history or of what certain days in history represent.

STUFF:

Like all of you, I have been listening to and watching Barack Hussein Obama and many of the Democrat/Socialist elected idiots attempt to sell us all on this Universal Healthcare Package. Now keep in mind, our federal government has pretty well screwed up everything over which they have taken control.

We keep hearing from Obama and his parrots about how ALL of the American people are not satisfied with health care as it now stands. Obama and his flunkies keep telling us that an overwhelming majority of the people are in favor of this legislation. Just this morning I watched an interview with Steny Hoyer who in my books is just about a half step behind Nancy Pelosi on the obnoxious liar scale. Anyway Steny gave some percentage of the people in favor of this legislation and something crossed my mind that I heard a number of years back. And that was the 79.3% of statistics are made up on the spot. This was a quote from comedian Stephen Wright who was plenty funny. Stephen also wondered that if you were going to shoot a mime, should you use a silencer?

Folks, that is just exactly what our federal government is doing to us now. Making up statistical information. Remember several years back when we were all told by President George Bush; Senator "Fat Teddy" Kennedy; Senator John McCain; Senator Lindsey Graham; Senator Trent Lott; Senator Chuck Schumer; Senator Hillary Clinton; and a whole host of other elected Representatives and Senators about how the majority of the American people were in favor of the idiotic McCain/Kennedy Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill? Then all of a sudden all of the Congress persons and Senators began to receive e-mails; phone calls; letters; and in person visits and realized that the vast majority of the American people INCLUDING many Hispanic Immigrants were dead against their miserable attempt to shove an amnesty bill down our throats.

I am getting the feeling that this is the exact same tactic being employed by the Obama administration on not only the Universal Health Care LIE but also on the Cap & Trade bill and the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor. Why Jim, you are saying, if you are calling the Universal Health Care legislation a LIE, then you must think that President Barack Hussein Obama and some of our Senators and Representatives are, dare I say it, LIARS. Let me think about that for awhile -------------- OK, long enough. Yes that is exactly what I am saying.

My wife posed a question this morning which I could not answer when she said, "If you had to choose which one to slap first, who would you choose; Nancy Pelosi or Barbara Boxer?" I had to admit, she had me on that one so instead of slapping the crap out of Nancy or Barbara I thought it might be fun to pinch Barney Frank until he cried.

These people have to be replaced. Of course we cannot depend upon the majority of the voters in California, Massachusetts, New York, or Illinois for any help so maybe it is up to the rest of the country to take back control of our government so that it returns to following the U.S. Constitution. Incidentally, I have read the Constitution many, many times and I don't recall ever seeing a governmental position entitled "CZAR". Have you?

SHIFTY POWERS:

I am sure that many of you have received e-mails regarding the death of Darrell 'Shifty' Powers. This World War II hero passed away on June 17, 2009 at the age of 86.

He served with the 101st Airborne and jumped into Normandy on D-Day. He participated in every major battle in which Easy Company was involved until the end of the war. He was considered the best shot in his Company.

After receiving many e-mails and requests from many of you on the mail list I must say that I am in agreement that we should take time to honor this man and his memory.


We have been bombarded for the past couple of week with news and words of praise for Michael Jackson and Walter Cronkite, when it is men like Darrell 'Shifty' Powers who should be receiving the attention and thanks from all of us.

God bless his memory.

Let us all remember that we are losing these World War II veterans at the rate of 1,000 per day. I still personally know a few and most of them are slowing down.

MORE STUFF:

The U.S. Tax Code that started in 1913 as fourteen pages now exceeds sixty-seven thousand.

From what I have been able to gather, the Universal Health Care package is in excess of 1,300 pages in length and apparently not a single elected official has read the bill in its entirety. Please tell me how ANYONE can cast an intelligent vote on legislation which they have not read. I watched Barack Hussein Obama attempt to lie his way out of a question asked on the legislation. Methinks that the American people are beginning to realize that intelligence and speaking articulately are actually a little more than being able to read well from a tele-prompter.

Oh, and just in case anyone asks you, "Who in the hell was Abbot Brumley"? Actually he was a fictional character from the old Walt Kelley comic strip "Pogo 'Possum". And what did he do? He invented the 'Antler Dance' which was performed by Bun Rabbit. And not recognizing his birthday is almost as important to me as ALASKA not publicly recognizing something which occurred in TEXAS in 1865. Neither is a pivotal moment in my life.

Guess I'd better stop for now. It actually looks and sounds as if it is going to rain.

We need it.

July 16th, 2009 HONOR / QUESTIONS / ANIMALS

Thursday - July 16, 2009


Hello from a worn out Pickup Ownin' SUV Drivin' Vast Right Wing Jingoistic Conspirator. I just realized that during the month of July, I have spent more nights in motels than I have at home. We got back in town late yesterday afternoon and I am plenty happy to be home. During our week in Colorado, I actually viewed very little television and heard practically no radio. All in all a pretty nice experience.

A couple of years ago I published my disclaimer that I WAS NOT a suspect of being the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby. Well with all the stuff which has happened the past couple of weeks I feel that perhaps I had also better clear the air on a couple of other matters which the media has seen fit to find important.

1) I DID NOT provide Michael Jackson with any drugs, prescription or otherwise.

2) I DID NOT have anything to do with the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor as a candidate for the Supreme Court.

3) I DID NOT attend the Michael Jackson memorial service.

HONOR:

After the death of Michael Jackson we were given the opportunity to watch a United States Representative, Sheila Jackson Lee -D,TX and liberal/socialist activist Reverend Al Sharpton call for some national recognition of this dysfunctional anorexic person. Sheila Jackson called Jackson a "Global Humanitarian" and further suggested a House Resolution to Honor Michael Jackson. It did not meet with much approval so perhaps this little tribute will go down in defeat.

Al Sharpton has suggested that the United States should issue a commemorative stamp to honor the suspected pedophile. As bad as I hate to admit it, I would not be the least bit surprised should the Obama Administration not cave in and do as this obnoxious little troll suggests.

After at least a week of a constant diet of Michael Jackson news it looks like it might subside to some degree. Of course when the media slime began to slow down on the Jackson death, La Toya Jackson (that would be one of Michael's sisters, for those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Worker's Republic of San Franciscyzstan) announced that Michael had been MURDERED and that she had proof. WOW! With a homicide expert like La Toya Jackson promoting the murder angle, how can any of us doubt it? Well, this will probably surprise you but I am not quite ready to commit resources and funds to pursue a full blown murder investigation on the word of La Toya 'Sherlock' Jackson.

One of the New York Congressmen made the statement that Michael Jackson was a 'Child Molester' and a 'Pedophile'. Of course the media jumped all over that reminding the Congressman that Michael had been found not guilty of those charges. I feel it necessary to remind these news mutts that O.J. was also found not guilty.

Anyway it will be interesting to see if the Obama administration folds like a cheap suit on this matter.

QUESTIONS:

As you all know, I have been on the road quite a bit for the last couple of weeks and I have not been able to watch the entire Sonia Sotomayor Senate Judiciary Committee dog and pony show but here are a few things I would like to point out:

HERE IS THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY:

Patrick Leahy - D-VT

Herb Kohl - D-WI

Diane Feinstein - D-CA

Russ Feingold - D-WI

Chuck Schumer - D-NY

Dick Durbin - D-IL

Benjamin Cardin - D-MD

Sheldon Whitehouse - D-RI

Amy Klobuchar - D-MN

Edward J. Kaufman - D-DE

Arlen Specter - D-PA

Al Franken -D-MN

Jeff Sessions - R-AL

Orrin Hatch - R-UT

Charles Grassley - R-IA

Jon Kyl - R- AZ

Lindsey Graham R- SC

John Cornyn - R-TX

Tom Coburn - R-OK

OK. We all have seen that the Democrat/Socialist Senators are ALL IN THE TANK for Sotomayor.

Then just announced by Jeff Sessions -R-AL, there will be no Republican filibuster on this nomination. My question is WHY NOT? This is another case of elected Republican officials laying down and playing dead instead of fighting tooth and nail against the confirmation of this radical left squack. I am very upset with many of our so called conservative Republican politicians. I just received a survey form in the mail from the Republican National Committee and I am sure you will be surprised to find out that also included in this survey was a touch for a donation.

I am going to answer the survey but instead of a donation they will receive a letter letting them know that they are barking up the wrong tree in asking me for money. I am sure that there should be absolutely no doubt in the committee's mind exactly just where they fit into my big picture. Just like the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, these bozos have forgotten why they were elected to begin with. Not a dollar, not a dime, not a peanut hull will they receive from me until they get off their dead asses and remember the conservatives in this country who gave them a majority in the House and Senate.

Also pretty noticeable in this judiciary fiasco is how Sotomayor responds to the questions. The questions from the Democrats/Socialists are all pretty soft and it seems fairly obvious to me that Sotomayor has been provided with those questions ahead of time. In contrast, when responding to tougher questions from the Republican Senators, she is less sure and dodges some of the questions and is constantly scribbling notes on a tablet in front of her. I have noticed several times when she is writing and not even looking at the questioning Senator during the question.

I am not convinced at this particular time that Sonia Sotomayor is being entirely truthful in her answers.

As a matter of fact, the best description of this heifer came from author and radio show host Mark Levin. He called Sotomayor "Ruth Bader Ginsburg plus 60 pounds". I must disagree with him to an extent, I would probably say about 80 pounds..

The bottom line is that we cannot depend on all of those so called Republican Senators to do their job. I can look at that list of Republican Senators and see at least three who will seldom do what is right for the people.

ANIMALS:

I listened to a report last week regarding people in Florida keeping exotic pets and then releasing them into the wild when they get too big to handle. The report said that there are an abundance of Nile Monitor Lizards running wild in Florida. They also said that there were an estimated 30,000 BURMESE PYTHONS loose in the Everglades. Now for those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Austin, Burmese Pythons grow to be rather large and aggressive. Now you must ask yourself this question: If these highly suspect exotic pet owners have released Pythons and Nile Monitors, do you suspect that just perhaps a few have kicked loose some poisonous imported snakes and perhaps the odd Piranha or two?

Well it is time again for the "Running of the Bulls" in Pamplona, Spain. Now what really amazes me is that the reporters act as if it were a real oddity for people to be injured/killed during this event. Let me see if I can break this down so that even the people in Minnesota can understand. You have a bunch of aggressive bulls weighing over 1200 pounds. Then you have a bunch of people from all over the world, most weighing less than 200 pounds. The people are in front of the bulls. The bulls as a general rule are faster than the people. Do you begin to see the picture? Why should anyone be surprised when people are either killed or seriously injured during this idiotic event? Those who are surprised must possess a collective I.Q. equal to that of a speed bump.

While in Colorado I spent a couple of days at our daughter's house running with my two grandsons (10 and 12) and our great grand daughter (11). While they were busy building various things with Lincoln Logs and some kind of plastic junk I was upstairs reading or catching a few minutes of FOX News. If you remember a couple of years back I sent out a little piece as a forward showing the differences in the way in which dogs and cats think. I began to notice the obvious differences in behavior of my daughter's dog (a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Nandi) and her two cats "Buttercup" and "Captain Jack". I almost had to laugh out loud at the different behavior when any of the three wanted either in or out of the house.

Of course the dog, when she wanted in or out, walked up to the door and wagged her tail and did a little dance in front of the door. Nandi is pure dog and knows it.

"Buttercup" when he wanted out went up to the door and meowed just as he did when he wanted in. He obviously has been civilized and realizes that if he makes a noise, he gets attention.

Ah but then there was "Captain Jack". "Captain Jack" is pure cat. Arrogant, barely tolerant of everyone around him. When he wanted out, he walked up to the door and sat down and stared at the door, almost as if he were willing the door to open. After about 10 seconds or so of this he would then slowly turn his head and glare at me as if he were trying to mentally tell me just how stupid he found me and he would continue to stare until I got up and opened the door. Then instead of dashing out the door, he would slowly walk out just to show you that he moved at his own pace and it was up to me to adjust. "Captain Jack" has one blue eye and one green eye. A really cool feline.

I also noticed that when "Buttercup" and "Nandi" met on the porch that they barely noticed each other. BUT when it was "Nandi" and "Captain Jack" there was definitely a little different attitude. They would slowly walk by each other and sort of keep an eye on one another until they were out of striking range. No real aggression but you could tell that it was a different relationship.

Animals are more fun than a whole bunch of people.

MORE STUFF:

Earlier in the week I heard a story of Specialist Channing Moss who was serving his country in Iraq. Channing Moss told of driving a Hummer and being hit with an RPG which came through the roof of his vehicle and struck him in the hip and imbedded in his pelvis. The RPG did not explode as designed. He told of the heroism of the chopper pilots and his fellow soldiers in getting him back to an area where he could receive medical treatment. He also spoke of the heroism of all of the medical personnel who risked their own lives in removing a live RPG from his body. It was an amazing story and just goes to show the type of men and women who are currently serving in our military.

Incidentally on July 4th, we celebrated in Lake City,Colorado who had an all day event in the park located downtown and was topped off by a really GREAT Fireworks Display. The fireworks are set off on a mountainside near the edge of town. Not a bad seat in the house.

On July 2nd we went to a concert put on by Michael Martin Murphy (no relation) and it was great.

OK. How about this? Members of the Intelligence Oversight Committee revealed that apparently the CIA had discussed plans to send in assassination teams to kill high level Al Qaeda terrorists. The program was not implemented but members of Congress had not been briefed on the program. Well now, we can't have this can we? Not telling a bunch of loud mouth, head runnin' mutts of some secret mission which was not executed to begin with. How dare they? Hey Congress! How's this grab you TOUGH SHIT!

Ah but we are not through with this just yet. There is talk of Attorney General Eric Holder appointing a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR to look into the matter. This present Attorney General is a plenty scary prospect as are these some 36 appointed Czars. Let us all remember, these Czars are not volunteers doing this little task for free. They are all being paid. And where does the money to pay them come from? Why the exact same place where the funds came from to throw a huge party for high ranking Social Security staff at one of the better hotels in Phoenix, Arizona.

OK. Try to digest this without going ballistic. We now have the U.S. Congress attempting to run our: Banks; Automobile Industry; Health Care; Energy; and a myriad of other intrusions in our everyday lives. Anyone remember the "House Bank"? House members BOUNCED more than 8,300 checks forcing it to close. They then promised us that they would fix the problem and get it all straight. How did they do this? They BOUNCED an additional 4,325 checks. Yessir, these are the folks I want in charge of our economy. How arrogant are these elected turds? How much more is the American public willing to swallow?

I was an elected city official for four years. On a smaller scale, my job was a legislative one. During those four years I had to vote on a number of ordinances and resolutions. Most of the ordinances were no more than 4 or 5 pages long. Occasionally there would be one which was pretty long. We would always get these in plenty of time to READ them prior to casting our vote. If there was something in the ordinance which I did not understand, I would go to experts in the field and get the answers PRIOR to voting on those legislative matters.

The idea of our House and Senate voting on legislative bills regarding health care, immigration, Second Amendment Rights, energy policies, or anything else which touches our everyday lives WITHOUT READING THE BILL, is preposterous. I heard that some of these pieces of legislation are actually VOTED ON PRIOR TO THE BILL BEING REDUCED TO WRITING. If that is not arrogance, then arrogance doesn't exist. We are getting laws stuffed down our throats without any public hearings or discussion.

But you can rest assured that according to the world's most articulate and intelligent human, Barack Hussein Obama, that his administration will act 'Boldly' and 'Swiftly'. His energy bill speech was an example of his arrogance and opinion of the American people.

AND MORE STUFF:

I was listening to the radio yesterday afternoon and some guy called in to the host. The topic of discussion had been the idiotic proposed Government Health Insurance Program. This guy who called in told the host that it was against federal law for ANYONE, after they became eligible for Medicare and in fact did sign up for Medicare, to purchase any type of health care insurance. Well I guess I am a major violator. Actually I don't know of many people on Medicare who do not have some type of supplemental policy to cover all the medical expenses not covered by Medicare. I don't know who this guy was, or where he lived, but he was dead wrong

KEEP ON THOSE ELECTED OFFICIALS!!!!

While finishing up this letter I was listening to the Lou Dobbs radio show and he played an audio clip in which a gentleman who is the head of the Black Chamber of Commerce, got right in the middle of Barbara Boxer's stupid rear end and basically showed her the respect which she so richly deserves and that would be NONE. I don't imagine that ol' Barbara gets talked to like that very often. I didn't catch this man's name but he sure did good.

THROW THE BUMS OUT!!!!

June 30th, 2009 PRIORITIES/TRAN/SENATOR

Tuesday - June 30, 2009

Greetings a day early from the West Texas Home For Jingoistic Second Amendment Believing Right Wing Conspirators.

PRIORITIES:

OK. This week we have seen our House Of Representatives vote on and pass the AMERICAN CLEAN ENERGY AND SECURITY ACT. This particular piece o' crap legislation passed by a vote of 219 For and 212 Against.

What really gets my rear end red as a baboon with diarrhea is the fact that Eight; 8; VIII; Ocho; 4 + 4; one more than seven; or one less than nine ( You people living in the People's Republic of San Francisco, take your pick) but EIGHT so called Republican U.S. Representatives voted FOR this tub of garbage. These eight traitorous mutts are:

Mary Bono - CA

Mike Castle - DE

Frank LoBiondo - NJ

Leonard Lance - NJ

Chris Smith - NJ

John Mchugh - NY

Mark Kirk - IL

Dave Reichart - WA

Notice that three of the eight are from New Jersey. Now even the mathematically challenged should be able to tell that if you add those eight votes on the AGAINST side, they would have totaled 220 and defeated the bill 220 to 211. I certainly hope the voters in those particular states remember this when their energy bills take a sharp turn upward.

Of course if you subscribe to that line of reasoning you would have to depend upon voters who have elected the following democrats to the Senate:

CA - Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein

IL - Roland Burris and Dick Durbin

NJ - Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez

WA - Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray

NY - Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer

So looking at the voting track record of those states, I don't imagine that those eight so called Republican career politicians have much to worry about.

Now while this madness was taking place, what single item was foremost on every news program for the past, oh shall we say 96 hours? Give up? Well it was the single least pivotal occurrence in my life this year. Still can't guess?

Where have you been? Of course it was the death of Michael Jackson. Now I am sure that the family of Michael Jackson are mourning his death. And I will agree that anyone dying at his age is not something which any of us expect.

But when you look at this dysfunctional young man who came by his bizarre behavior righteously. His whole family is dysfunctional. Most of the people who fawn over his every movement are dysfunctional at best.

On the first day of his demise, I was subjected to Shepard Smith, FOX News reporter, making statements which would lead one to believe that Michael Jackson was "Maybe the Greatest Dancer EVER". Well 'Shep', beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you choose to believe your own horse crap, so be it. But when I think of men who were truly talented dancers, I tend to think of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Conner, Ray Bolger, Sammy Davis Jr., Gregory Hines, James Cagney, and the entire River Dance group.

What was even more insulting was the fact that after the news first broke, there was no real information came out regarding the incident until a couple of days later. I can watch an aerial view of a crowd milling around outside a Los Angeles hospital. Then we were subjected to the riveting opinions of the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Of course most of us had rather be pecked to death by a duck than be subjected to any of the tripe put out by these two mutts.

Our local liberal rag saw fit to give most of the front page to a large photo and article regarding the death of Michael Jackson. They also felt it their duty to devote another entire page with a half page color photo about the career of Jackson.

In the same issue they did give a very few lines regarding the death of Farah Fawcett. I was not a huge fan of Charlie's Angels but I did think Farah Fawcett was a beautiful lady and after Charlie's Angels she made a couple of serious films and did a really good job as a serious actress. I did not particularly think her choice in partners was very good as I have always viewed Ryan O'Neil as a pure mutt.

Now you notice this particular section was titled "Priorities". I believe that my priorities are a bit more in line with most Americans. I have left the best till last. Also since last week, TV Personality Ed McMahon passed away.

Now while most people viewed Ed McMahon as Johnny Carson's sidekick on the Tonight Show for about thirty years. And of course that is true, but how many know that Ed McMahon was a Marine Pilot during WW II? When Pearl Harbor was attacked, Ed joined the Marines. He was carrier qualified which some former pilots refer to as a 'controlled crash'. At the end of the war, Ed stayed in the USMC as a reserve officer.

He was recalled to active duty during the Korean War. He flew 85 combat missions over North Korea After the Korean War ended Ed McMahon stayed with the Marine Corps as a reserve officer and retired in 1966 as a Colonel. He was commissioned as a Brigadier General in the California Air National Guard. Ed McMahon received a number of decorations for his actions in combat. And of course, he never mentioned them other than to say that when you flew enough missions, they just sort of gave them to you. Sounds like some more of our military people.

I received an e-mail which told of Colonel Ed McMahon presenting awards and decorations to fellow Marines and always attended the annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball. He stayed true to his Corps as a board member of the Marine Corps Scholarship Fund. Once a Marine, always a Marine.

Anyway, other than a few words and some old Tonight Show video, Ed McMahon, who was the most deserving of some print, received precious little in comparison to "The King of Pop."

SENATOR:

Just as I started today's letter, a news story came over the radio telling that the Minnesota Supreme Court had just certified that the new U.S. Senator from Minnesota was none other than AL FRANKEN.

The people in Minnesota who voted for this turd should be ashamed.

IRAN:

Well the election in Iran is over. Students rioting in the streets. Iranian military beating the snot out of demonstrators. An investigation into voting irregularities ended up showing that the election was on the up and up.

Now, with that being said, I read several reports where a number of areas in Iran showed over a 130% voter turnout and one area had a voter turnout of 140%.

My question is this. How in the hell did ACORN get over to Iran and get all those folks registered and out to vote?

MORE STUFF:

Convicted music legend Phil Spector has been assigned to a "Sensitive Needs" facility in the California Prison System. "Sensitive Needs"? I am not entirely sure exactly what that means.

Ah, but President Barack Hussein Obama in a speech pushing his energy bill has mentioned the State of California as a model for the rest of the country to emulate regarding their energy policies.

Is this the same California who a few years ago was having to purchase their electricity from Texas and other states who had not regulated themselves out of the energy business?

But as with every other action taken by the world's most articulate and intelligent human, the actions were done "Boldly", "Swiftly" and "Decisively". I cannot ever remember seeing a United State President who was more sold on himself than is Barack Hussein Obama.

Do you sometimes get the idea that those people who voted for Obama last November all possess the I.Q. of the temperature at the South Pole?

Also, if T.Boone Pickens is correct on his wind energy program, then you all need to go to California and take a look at the area West of Palm Springs where as far as you can see are giant wind turbines. If these turbines provide so much cheap and clean energy, why was California forced to purchase energy from out of state? Could it be that T.Boone has not been entirely honest with us in regards to this form of energy?

Which brings me to this point. We hear people complain about how our elected officials are not being honest with us and dare I say it, have actually lied about some matters. Let me make this perfectly clear. We have people who are elected to jobs which are financed by our tax dollars. Most of these people, not all but most, have lied and cheated their way into being elected to these jobs. So why should any of us be surprised when they continue to lie and cheat and steal once they have been elected? Particularly in light of the fact that our government is being conducted in a city where lying, cheating, and stealing are the rule rather than the exception. TERM LIMITS FOR THEM ALL.

June 24th, 2009 APPOINTMENT/MEDDLING/CARTER

Wednesday - June 24, 2009

Greetings once again from the West Texas Headquarters For Gun Clinging Conspiratorial Sons Of Jingoistic Smear Merchants.

APOLOGIES:

It seems as if Barack Obama has found a new Olympic Sport. It is called Olympic Class Apologizing. Up to this point no other country has a leader who has shown the capabilities of the President of the United States in this particular venue. Oh, I know, France can out surrender almost everyone on the planet but I have noticed that President Barack Hussein Obama is showing some really weak tendencies which are really necessary if you are going to compete in the surrendering competition.

Since we are on the topic of apologies, I noticed where the U.S. Senate voted unanimously last week to adopt a resolution apologizing for slavery. This resolution was led by Senator Tom Harkin, (D-IOWA). Senator Harkin said, "You wonder why we didn't do it 100 years ago. It is important to have a collective response to a collective injustice."

OK, Senator Harkin, let me make this perfectly clear. I am 72 years old and live in the State of Texas. I have never owned a slave. My father never owned a slave. I have never found anything in our family history to show that either of my grand fathers ever owned any slaves.

While I do not believe it is morally right for one person to "own" another and I believe that slavery was not in the best interest of our country, I DO NOT harbor any feelings approaching guilt for something which happened several hundred years prior to my birth.

I am reminded of a situation which happened in Hobbs, New Mexico when I was serving on the Hobbs City Commission. A local Reverend who was black and took the role of an activist in perceived racial matters wrote a letter to each of the Hobbs City Commissioners. I saw a copy of the letter written to the Commissioners after one of the other Commissioners showed me his copy. I did not receive a copy of the letter. It was allegedly mailed to each of our residences. The letter made a statement regarding some legislative matters to be voted upon in the future.

The next City Commission meeting came around and this Reverend was at the meeting. He asked for permission to address the Commission which was granted. He went off on a tirade about no one on the City Commission had written him a response to his letter. I would imagine a very good reason was that the letter did not request or call for a response. He immediately made a racial issue out of the matter even though we had one black female and one Hispanic male on the five person City Commission. I listened to the Reverend rant on about how he had been disrespected by every member of the Hobbs City Commission and that he DEMANDED an apology.

At this point, our Commissioner who was acting as Mayor for that term made this statement: "Reverend W - - - s, on behalf of the entire Hobbs City Commission, I offer you our heart felt apology".

At about this point I had heard enough. First of all, I had not ever received a copy of the letter. So I told the Mayor and the good Reverend that the apology was not entirely unanimous and they could drop my name from the apology group. Of course you could have heard a pin drop because with a couple of exceptions in the past, this Reverend had received enough ass kissing from public figures that he had grown accustomed to it.

I asked the Reverend when he had mailed his copy of the letter to me, had he put my full name on the envelope. He, of course, could not remember. Then I asked him to please tell me what address he had put on the envelope on the letter he had mailed to me. He, of course, could not remember. So I informed the good Reverend and the remainder of the Commission that there was another James Murphy who lived in Hobbs, New Mexico. I was James E. Murphy and he was James A. Murphy. The other James Murphy was about 20 years older than me and I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I received mail intended for him and phone calls for him. And of course the same thing was true the other way around. He received some mail and phone calls intended for me. And since he was James A. Murphy, his name was ahead of mine in the phone book. In all probability the letter went to him instead of me.

But I made sure that everyone in the room knew that this apology was not necessary and to make sure they scratched my name from the apologist's list.

My point being is this; If an apology is owed to an individual or group of individuals for some act or statement made against them, and that act or statement was done by you, then there is no way that I should apologize for your act and in the event that the apology was made by you for something which I did, either apology would be MEANINGLESS. I can only be held accountable for what I say and do, not for what others say or do.

So, Senator Harkin, your apology was just another blatant, idiotic, meaningless attempt to garner political clout with a particular minority group. So while you are at it, why don't you and your fellow Senators demand an apology from Italy for enslaving my ancestors? Then go on back and why don't you demand an apology from Egypt, Greece, Macedonia, and Israel? But why stop there? Why not insist that the Zulus in South Africa apologize to the other native tribes for their treatment? And while you are at it, demand an apology from the descendents of the Matabele people for the way they treated the Mashona tribe. But let's don't let it drop with that. Why not demand that the Comanche and Kiowa tribes get down on their knees and beg forgiveness for all of the peaceful American Indian tribes that received horrendous treatment from them. Make sure to strongly request all the people in Mexico who can trace their heritage back to the Aztecs make a strong request for forgiveness to the descendents of all of the other Indian tribes native to that country. Need I go on?

So with this lame ass attempt to play the race card for political purposes, I am going to add Senator Harkin's name to our Varmint's list this week. And what really grates on me the most is that Senate Republicans went right along with you. That is why we need to take a serious look at even some of our so called conservative Republicans in Washington.

FIRING

Was it the Barack Hussein Obama who was elected President of the United States, or another Barack Hussein Obama who promised he would "End Washington games" if elected? I'm pretty sure it was this one. But has he done what he promised?

Seems to me like when anyone starts getting close to some person or group who are dog loyal to the world's most articulate and intelligent human, they have a job life expectancy of a baby seal caught in a pod of killer whales. (For those of you who reside in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that's pretty damn short.)

Of course the latest federal employee to feel the axe was Gerald Walpin, an Inspector General who had the job of monitoring AmeriCorps. Walpin's office uncovered a multitude of grant violations, including criminal background check lapses and pervasive problems of eligibility, time keeping and documentation. Walpin's office questioned duplicate educational awards of more than $16 Million dollars and costs of nearly $775,000. Of course some of the people responsible for some of these areas questioned by Mr. Walpin were personal friends and supporters of Barack Hussein Obama. And of course the First Lady, Michelle Obama apparently had a hand in selecting some of the AmeriCorps managers.

But of course firing Mr. Walpin was not enough. This corrupt administration had to make sure that they destroyed his reputation, which incidentally was quite stellar up until the Obama mutts joined the game. So apparently Mr. Walpin was fired for doing a really bad thing. HIS JOB.

PETA

Now many of you probably are thinking that there is no act which President Barack Hussein Obama could do which would please me. WRONG! I was watching him in an interview on TV and saw him swat a fly and was successful in killing the beast. You would think that if I could find no fault in this act that no one could. WRONG AGAIN! PETA took issue with the actions of President Barack Hussein Obama and I guess the proper thing for Obama to do would be on behalf of every past and future President, and also on behalf of all of the manufacturers of insecticides to offer a heart felt apology to PETA. Or he could tell them to kiss his backside. Yeah, I like that better. I read somewhere that on our planet, there are something like 200 million insects for every person on earth. That's a bunch o' bugs. So I am going to take this opportunity on behalf of President Barack Hussein Obama to tell PETA to get stuffed. Come to think of it though, I think more of the insects than I do of PETA members.

Wonder how many federal dollars these slugs get every year?

STUFF:

We have heard quite a few stories on the two female reporters who have been imprisoned in North Korea by the courageous forces of Kim Jong Il. Now obviously I do not agree with what has been done by the North Korean government. And I believe that the North Korean leaders view our leader as plenty weak.

But all of the reports said that these two female reporters wandered into North Korea from China. I immediately looked at a World Atlas to look at the border which separated the two countries. Then I saw a video showing the area where the reporters were taken into custody which confirmed what I had learned from my Atlas. The media mutts reported that "There was no clear border." But the video showed what my maps had shown that the border between China and North Korea is THE YALU RIVER. I don't believe you could accidentally cross that river into North Korea, particularly if the video was correct.

Of course I do not believe that these two reporters will be the last persons seized by hostile countries. I believe that many countries will test this Community Organizer just to see how tough he really is. I did hear today that he was trying to "Open a dialog" with some other bunch of slugs who hate our guts. I am just about full of all this dialog crap. Isn't telling someone that if they continue their present course, they will be wearing their ass for a hat, dialog? Sure sounds dialogish to me. BUT only if you mean it. Once again, on the Courage Meter, Barack Hussein Obama trails France.

MORE STUFF:

In these tough economic times, the federal government isn't the only entity who is screwing the American public around. One of the major airlines as come up with a creative new fee. They already are charging a "Baggage Fee". Now you can pay this fee on line ahead of time or you can pay cash at the airport. BUT if you choose to pay cash at the airport, this airline charges a penalty fee for not paying on line. What in the hell is going on in this country when you are penalized for paying cash for something.

A few years back when Alltel was Cellular One you received your monthly bill. Now you could pay this bill on line; or you could send them a check through the mail; or you could pay your bill with cash at the local Cellular One outlets. BUT if you chose to pay cash, there was a $5 penalty added to your bill. I always paid my bill on the day I received it at the outlet which was just a few blocks from the Post Office. When they told me that I was going to be penalized for paying cash on the day I received the bill, I damn near went postal on them. I called their main office and talked to several people who could not give me a reason for this idiotic fee and I began writing letters and got a few replies, some of which were reasonably snotty. So I finally got the name and address of the head monkey and wrote him what could be conservatively an "Ass Burner". I got no reply but the next month the $5 cash penalty had been removed. I strongly imagine many more customers wrote letters or cancelled their service. I do not like to give these companies access to my bank accounts. But being penalized for paying cash on time is asinine.

Speaking of asinine, I am absolutely so put out with John McCain that I wonder how he ever got the Republican nomination. I have seen him on several video clips proclaiming what a "Good Job" Barack Hussein Obama has done in his first four months as President. I guess that Comprehensive Immigration Reform is not the only thing which Senator McCain and I are in disagreement.

What is it with John McCain and one of our Texas Senators, John Cornyn talking all of this: "My very good friend" or "Our good friends from the other side of the aisle". I am sure that there might be the occasional Democrat/Socialist who is not completely off the board but they are a rare breed. And referring to "Fat Teddy" or Chuck Schumer or Richard Durbin or Barbara Boxer as "My good friend" under any circumstances just isn't going to happen. This just shows how brainwashed they all become after a few years in Washington. TERM LIMITS IS THE ONLY ANSWER.

I guess that about does it for another week. I guess I had better get back to the TV as Texas has fallen behind LSU in the final game of the College World Series. Way more fun than the major league whiners.

I will be a day or so early next week as we will be leaving for Colorado and New Mexico for about 10 days.

June 17th, 2009 APPOINTMENT/MEDDLING/CARTER

Wednesday - June 17, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Anti Whiner Jingoistic Attack Machine.

MEDDLING:

This past week I am sure that many of you have noticed just exactly how indecisive and weak President Barack Hussein Obama has appeared in the world stage. I have observed him, apparently without the assistance of a tele prompter weasel his way through questions regarding the Iranian election. It looks to me as if many Iranians were upset over the result of the Iranian Presidential Elections which according to the count was won by Ahmadinejad over Mousavi. Let us not forget that the rank of President in Iran is more figurehead than it is a really powerful decision making position. The real power and decision making is done by a group of Mullahs with the Ayatollah at the head of this council.

But the United States President, Barack Hussein Obama has chosen to take the public position of not MEDDLING in the affairs of Iran. Funny, he doesn't mind meddling in our daily lives. He doesn't mind meddling in the affairs of Israel. He doesn't mind meddling with the United States Constitution. Apparently he doesn't mind meddling in the N.Korean nuclear development (Although I must admit that his degree of meddling into the N. Korean question is a pretty weak and wimpy meddle).

But, let us not be too hard on Barack Hussein Obama. I also realize that in Barack Hussein Obama's view, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, PBS and their like are the only broadcast media outlets where he receives FAIR TREATMENT. I heard him whine about FOX News never giving him a fair shake. SHAME ON YOU FOX NEWS! It is obvious that not one single person connected with FOX News ever gives the world's most articulate and intelligent human a positive word. Oh, there of course is Juan Williams. And there is Mort Kondracke. And there is always Mara Liasson, Alan Colmes, Ellis Hennigan, Bob Beckel and a whole host of others who are obviously in the tank for Obama and keep in mind they all work for FOX News. And I would be a bit remiss if I did not point out that on occasion, Bill O'Reilly kisses up to Obama.

BUT, let's not be too hasty in our judgement of this Chicago Community Organizer. I mean, after all, look at what he has as his primary goals.


The COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF:

Social Security

Health Care

U.S. Economy

U.S. Military

Constitutional Rights of U.S. Citizens

U.S. Foreign Policy

I am fairly confident that Obama can, with advice from incompetent staff, come up with some additional levels of bureaucracy which can be headed by a few more Czars who can be appointed by Obama without the approval of the incompetent Senate and House.

BUT we can rest assured that these actions can be done:

Swiftly

Boldly

Sweepingly

Comprehensively

Keep in mind that every problem encountered by this socialist administration is a CRISIS. Also keep in mind that this administration is rather unfamiliar with the truth and is completely indebted to some pretty strange organizations and people.

It is also pretty apparent that should some government employee uncover something which, dare I say, may be illegal, that employee's days are numbered insofar as government employment. And do any of the mainstream media outlets ever question any of these acts? I would imagine that should some reporter make that mistake that he/she would be replaced faster than Bill Clinton could drop his pants.*

*This approaches the speed of light. (For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would be approximately 186,282.397 miles per second)

CARTER:

Now, while President Barack Hussein Obama does not wish to be perceived as meddling into the affairs of our enemies in the Middle East, he has absolutely no problems with having former President Jimmy Carter go to Gaza and meddle big time into the affairs of Israel and the Palestinians. But never fear, Jimmy Carter can go to the Middle East and blame his own country with a vigor equal to that of President Barack Hussein Obama.

We have been hearing stories from Gaza about Hamas uncovering some roadside bombs planted on the route taken by former President Jimmy Carter and his entourage. Now I don't really have any inside information on this but after hearing the "In the Tank" government controlled mainstream media speaking of this particular incident, I had a thought which crossed my mind.

Just for the sake of argument, ask yourself this question. Why would any of the radical terrorist organizations have any desire to harm this anti-American former President? Every time he opens his mouth he does so to blame his own country for every problem in our world today. OH! But let us not forget, like the present President, he is a CITIZEN OF THE WORLD. But to answer the question, I cannot come up with a single reason for any terrorist organization wishing any harm to befall Jimmy Carter.

So I have come up with this theory and I will probably believe this until I am proven wrong. Ask yourself another question:

Wouldn't it be easy to find explosive devices along a road if you had put them there yourself? You see, up to this point, the Palestinians have not shown that they are overly endowed with brains. After all, on a daily basis, they bring rocks to gunfights.

Why Jim. It sounds as if you are saying that perhaps Hamas did this to make themselves look good to the rest of the world and in particular our incompetent administration.

Yep. That pretty well sums it up.

So my suggestion is this:

Unless Jimmy Carter is going to the Middle East to build a "House for Humanity", he should keep his ass in Georgia and is mouth shut.

APPOINTMENT:

I heard a couple of days ago a news report that RNC Chairman Michael Steele had appointed a "Latino" man (Sorry, I didn't catch his name) to some high position in the RNC. It was reported that this appointment was made in order to garner a stronger Hispanic vote for the Republican Party.

I don't know about the rest of you but if I was Hispanic and a Republican or even a conservative Hispanic Democrat, I would be plenty insulted at this report. So again, political correctness has slipped into the game.

Once again, I do not remember the man's name and he might be very qualified for the position to which he was appointed, but I would be more than a little insulted if my appointment were made for any reason other than my ability to do the job. And racial quotas don't really feed the bulldog. This reminds me of something that the democrat/socialist party has been doing for years. And in so doing, have kept many minority citizens indebted to the federal government and kept them in a victim mentality.

Along these same lines, I read a letter to the editor in our local liberal rag. This letter had to do with acceptance of students at state universities based upon their ranking grade average wise upon their graduation from their high schools. This idiot in typical liberal/socialist fashion felt incumbent to point out that the University of Texas was one of the most DIVERSE universities in the United States. He went on to say that the school needed to maintain its DIVERSITY. Once again this is all a bunch of political correct crap. I personally do not care about ethnic quotas in anything. If the University of Texas student body were made up of nothing but really top notch students, regardless of racial balance, I would be much happier than these special interest mutts caving in to political correctness.

Anyway, I thought that if Michael Steele had indeed made the appointment for the reasons given, then he should be ousted and get someone in the position who believed in smaller federal government; lower taxes; less government intrusion; and a return to the U.S. Constitution as it was written and not all this living breathing document garbage. The U.S. Constitution as it was written was a pretty strict and unbending set of rules. I realize that there were no automobiles and air traffic and interstate highways when the Constitution was written and ratified. And I realize that the interpretation of the Constitution by the Supreme Court must take changes into account. But we are now subjected to interpretation by some Justices based upon things which are absent in the Constitution. ANd in some cases some of the Justices take International Law into consideration when making their rulings.

Always remember; This Obama administration from top to bottom will lie and make up statistics which will further their Socialist ideology.

MORE STUFF:

This past week I spoke with one of our local pharmacists and we began to discuss Obama's proposed new Universal Health Care plan. Not once in the conversation did I hear it referred to as "Sweeping" or "Bold" or "Comprehensive" or the need for it to be enacted "Swiftly". This man knew quite a bit about socialized medical care as is now in effect in Canada; England and most of Europe. We did agree that the Obama administration made up figures to suit their particular program.

Why Jim, you sound like you are accusing the Obama administration of lying to get what they want. Yep, that's what I feel is happening.

Also this past week there were several reports which I heard regarding captured combatants. In typical liberal/socialist fashion, the Obama administration apparently favors advising enemy combatants ,captured by our military, of the Constitutional right to an attorney. Wait a minute. This advice of rights ,which is given to defendants who are questioned by the police in a criminal case, is a regulation for law enforcement in order to make any confession admissible in a criminal trial. It is NOT meant for Prisoners of War. I am convinced that this administration have collectively been bitten by rabid monkeys and have taken complete leave of their senses. Then again, maybe they are just a bunch of liberal/socialist mutts.

And just to set the record straight, television has given the public the perception that each and every person placed under arrest must be given their Miranda Warning: Right to attorney; Right to remain silent; etc....... This is simply not the case. The Miranda Warning is required if the person arrested is to be questioned and that his statement or answers to questions will be used against him/her in their trial. People watch too much TV. Some law enforcement agencies as a matter of departmental policy have a rule that requires that every arrested person be given their Miranda Warning. But that is a departmental rule, not the law.

Earlier in the week I made a trip to a Wal-Mart Super Center. Now before I go any further, let me assure you all that I had rather be pecked to death by a duck than fight the Wal-Mart crowds and parking lot. However, they do as a general rule have some pretty good prices on ammunition. Since we are preparing for a trip to Colorado to visit our daughter and her family and all of our grandsons, I felt a duty to try to take as much .22 long rifle ammunition as I could lay my hands on. Our two youngest grandson can run through .22 long rifle ammunition quicker than Obama can lie. (For those of you in the Freedom Loving Peoples Province of Austin, that is also approaching the speed of light). So I went to the firearms section and asked if they had some .22 long rifle ammo. The man said, "Yes, we have plenty for a change". The Remington .22 long rifle ammo was priced at $1.60 for a box of 50. (Keep in mind that this is the same Remington .22 LR ammo that I paid $0,50 per box long ago. Still the $1.60 price was really reasonable. So I told him I wanted a dozen boxes.

The clerk said,"No can do". I asked him if he didn't have a dozen boxes and he said, "Oh, yeah, I have plenty but I can only sell six boxes maximum per day to any one customer. I asked him if this was some idiotic federal rule and he told me that it was the store policy. So I got the allowed six boxes and paid the man. I started to the front of the store and the closer I got to the front, the more I decided to contact the manager and see if he was the person in charge of ammunition rationing. The closer I got to the front of the store, the more pissed I got and I was on the verge of really getting in the middle of whoever was responsible.


All of a sudden, from out of nowhere, the skies opened, birds began to sing, music started playing in my head. A message from heaven, you ask? No it was more divine than that. I suddenly had noticed on the rack at the front of the book section, which I had to pass on the way to the front desk, was the 2009 edition of DAVE CAMPBELL'S TEXAS FOOTBALL MAGAZINE. Now for those of you who do not live in Texas and for those who are not football fans, you can never imagine the magical effect that DAVE CAMPBELL'S TEXAS FOOTBALL MAGAZINE has on a real football fan. Now I am not speaking of people who watch the million dollar whiners on Sunday afternoon and Monday night.

I am speaking of folks who tolerate the Sunday whiners but really like College Football and absolutely love football at the high school level. This magazine gives the absolute best information on every Texas and Big XII South team and the schedules of every NCAA Division I football team as well as a rundown on every high school in the State of Texas.

Texas has quite a few Six-Man Football schools. These are the really small high schools who generally cannot field enough young men for an 11 man team. Anyway as I was going through this book I noticed a page which gave advance notice of the 6th Annual Hico Six-Man Super Saturday on August 29th, 2009 at Tiger Stadium in Hico, Texas. On that date, beginning at 10 AM I will be watching FIVE Six-Man games. Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday and all for $10.

So you see, even in the midst of our government being staffed and operated by people who seem to possess the I.Q. of a speed limit sign, occasionally a ray of sunshine will sneak through.

I am really looking forward to the next month or so. This coming week end we will go to Granbury, Texas for the second birthday party for our great grandson. We will bring our great grand daughter back to San Angelo and on July 1st we will take off for Lake City, Colorado and visit our daughter and her family which will include all of our grandsons. We will get to spend July 4th in Lake City and they do a bang up job with a July 4th celebration. We will get to see some other friends we have made in Lake City. On our way back, we will stop and spend a couple of days in Hobbs, New Mexico and see some folks who we really miss.

Anyway, please keep your spirits up and do everything in your power to legally take back control of our government. I have high hopes that many Americans will realize what a huge mistake was made in the last Presidential election.

Also, call, write, e-mail your elected officials and urge them NOT to pass legislation which in any manner takes funding away from our military and give extra funds to some international banking organizations. Keep the pressure on these elected officials.

See ya' next week

June 3, 2009 MURDER/VOTER I.D./AUTOMOBILE

Wednesday - June 3, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Center For Jingoistic Right Wing Conspiratorial Gun Clinging Non Sotomayor Supporters.

MURDER:

Within the past few days there have been three cases which have been classified as murder by various law enforcement agencies. What I found pretty unacceptable regarding these three cases was the fact that two of them were reported by almost every news agency while one was reported primarily by FOX News. One of the heavily reported cases of course was the killing of Dr. George Tiller. Of course this does appear to be a clear cut case of murder. And the act was done by an individual with a violent history and has in the past been involved with a radical anti-government agenda. Of course most of the media told us about this killing and made it a point to call to our attention the fact that this radical anti-government was "Right Wing". Since Dr. George Tiller became famous by being one of only three doctors in the United States who regularly performed late term abortions. The number attributed to Dr. Tiller has been 60,000. Of course the federal government began immediately to take steps to provide protection for others in that field.

The second killing involved a pharmacist in Oklahoma who was being robbed by two young black males. One of the males had a firearm. But so did the Pharmacist who shot one of the robbers and also wounded the second who ran from the scene. The video of this event showed the Pharmacist firing at the two robbers and giving a short chase to the one who left the store. Then the Pharmacist returned inside the store and went to the rear of the store. He returned a few seconds later and shot the robber who was on the floor several more times. According to the Pharmacist, when he returned from the outside, he heard a female employee screaming from a back room. He said that he thought that the female employee's daughter had been shot by one of the robbers. He also said that he thought the robber on the ground was armed. He returned into the main part of the store and the video showed the Pharmacist standing roughly where the shot robber was on the floor.

The video showed him shooting the robber several more times. Since it was not caught on the camera, I do not know whether this last part of the Pharmacist's story is accurate, but the Pharmacist said that the robber on the floor began moving and he thought the robber had a gun and he shot him several more times. I believe that this robber had been shot in the head by the first shot. He was shot in the abdomen on the second round of shots. The Pharmacist appeared on a FOX News program last evening and told his version. As I said, I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the Pharmacist's account of the event but it should be noted that this Pharmacist also was wearing a brace as he had recently had surgery on his spine.

The third reported murder involved an American Born Muslim man named Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad who shot Private William Long who was a United States Army Recruiter. There also was another U.S. Soldier,Private Wuinton Ezeagwula, shot by Muhammad who did not die. I have seen just a couple of quick blurbs on regular network news. FOX News is apparently the only news channel who gave this much coverage. And as of this time, apparently the family of Private Long has not received any word from our federal government leaders and I have not heard one word mentioned from the White House. I guess they were too busy providing security for other late term abortion doctors. Oh, I forgot, this is a health issue. It is a sad thing when a young man doing his job is killed by a domestic terrorist and the media and the White House don't view this act as worthy of comment.

So at the risk of being really viewed as an enemy of the socialists in our government and news media, I will make this statement:

Murder is WRONG, regardless of the alleged reasons for committing the act. With that being said, I must add that I am probably not going to lose much sleep over the demise of Dr. Tiller. Nor will I get the urge to fall on my sword over the loss of the Oklahoma robber.

But my prayers do go out to the family of Private Long who was just a young man trying to do his job and was cut down by someone who is determined to kill others just because they are of a different religion than is he. Of course, I obviously have a different view of this than does our federal government.

Apparently President Barack Hussein Obama has a different set of priorities than many of the rest of us. No word on the murder of Private Long. BUT he immediately condemned the murder of George Tiller. Perhaps the President had his future Middle East ass kissing, apology tour in mind and didn't want to do anything which might upset the Arab world. Too bad he is equally concerned with our men and women serving in our military.

VOTER I.D.:

The Texas Legislature has been attempting to pass legislation in the state which would require that a photo I.D. be presented at the time an individual votes in any election in the State of Texas. Why would anyone object to an individual being required to provide a photo identification at the polls? Well after this last election and the horror stories we have all heard of the voter fraud perpetrated by ACORN and the apparent lack of interest by the Democrat/Socialist Party, one would have to imagine that persons who support voter fraud would not find favor with this type of legislation.

The Texas Republican Legislators actually had a few right thinking Democrat Legislators on board to pass this into law. That was until the remainder of the Democrat Legislators decided to fall back on the filibuster as a means to block this piece of legislation. Of course I guess that beats what the Democrat Senators did a number of years back when the Texas Republican Party had a simple majority in the Senate. What did those brave Democrat/Socialist Senators do then to prevent the Senate from having a quorum? Simple. They RAN. Ran you ask? Yep. They left the state as a group and went first to Oklahoma and when the Texas Governor sent the Texas Rangers to find them and serve them with papers which would require their return, they left Oklahoma and went to New Mexico. Was this courageous or what?

Bottom line is that the Texas Democrats/Socialists are basically cut from the same cloth as are the members of the Democrat/Socialist Party at the national level.

AUTOMOBILE:

Well whether we like it or not, according to our federal government, we are now part owners of GMC and Chrysler. I would like an offer from anyone for my portion of these two corporations. Yesterday I watched a report on the person who Barack Hussein Obama has earmarked to be in charge of the dismantling and re-structuring of the General Motors Corporation. This man is Bryan Deese who is 31 years old. Probably well educated and experienced, you say? From the report I heard yesterday, Mr. Deese was in his final year in college and took a leave of absence in order to work on the Obama Campaign.

One must ask this question. What does Mr. Deese know about the automobile industry. For that matter, what does Mr. Deese know about running any business, since he apparently has never held a real job. But doesn't this sort of describe President Barack Hussein Obama as well? One would have to guess that had Mr. Deese ever held an actual job and had neglected to pay his taxes, he might have been considered for a Cabinet Position.

Now all of this is on top of our government, knowing that General Motors would declare bankruptcy last Monday, still chose the week prior to this declaration decided to pour in another four billion or so dollars into this company. I heard last week that General Motors Corp. stock was down to Forty Five Cents; $0.45; per share which was the lowest it has ever been. So as I see it, our federal government, who screws up practically everything it touches is now firmly in control of most of our banks as well as the automobile industry.

And to really make you feel good think of it this way:

Our federal government is in the capable hands of a group of people, most of whom have never held a real job and who apparently all have an arithmetic problem, particularly in dealing with income and taxes due on same.

Then you must realize that these incompetent boobs are the ones on whom we depend to handle our safety during an emergency situation. When you think about that, you come to the realization that the only emergency any of these slugs are equipped to handle would be in the event of Mr. Snuggles coughing up a hair ball in the Oval Office.

I heard one person describe the situation like this; General Motors is no longer an automobile company, it is a Federal Jobs Program. If you think that is far fetched, just wait for a few years when in order to by a new American made automobile you will be driving something which will make the Yugo look like a Coupe DeVille.

MORE STUFF:

I was watching Dr. Thomas Sowell a couple of days back when he gave a pretty simple description of Socialism vs. Fascism. He pointed out that in Socialism, the government owned all of the businesses while in Fascism, the businesses were privately owned BUT the government told them how to operate. Both subscribe to the Keynesian economic principles and both types of government were totalitarian in nature. He also pointed out that our present government embraces mediocrity.

Stop and think about this mediocrity for a moment. It has become fashionable for everyone who competes to receive recognition. Our public education system is a prime example. Many of our school districts are more concerned with the self esteem of certain students than they are about teaching children. They are more interested in making sure that young children are comfortable with diverse life styles than they are about teaching them basics.

Yesterday I was listening to a radio program in the morning and heard a man who described himself as an American Indian who was raised as a sharecropper and worked hard just as soon as he was old enough to help out on the farm. He said that he was good in athletics and pointed out the fact that his success in athletics depended directly on his performance. He said that Affirmative Action didn't mean much in the field of athletics. He also pointed out that poverty is a GREAT MOTIVATOR. He said that being raised as a member of a poor family gave him the motivation that he needed to do well in his education and helped him to know how to help others in the same situation. Here was a man who was damn proud of being an American Indian. He refused to be a victim and had no use for those who were satisfied with being a member of the Victimology group. He believed in strict discipline. So do I.

MORE STUFF:

Please do not forget to fly your American Flags and remember those who gave their lives on those Normandy beaches as well as those who made it through D-Day. What really gets my goat is the fact that those of us who choose to remember that day are declining in number. A year or so back I was making an appointment at my doctor's office and the young lady who was her clerk asked me if I had rather have my appointment on June 6th or June 7th. I told her that I would take the June 7th day as I has some things to do on June 6th. Then as an afterthought I asked her if she knew what had happened on June 6th. She immediately answered "Sure do. That is D-Day". I was pretty shocked since this young lady couldn't have been over 19 or 20 years old. I complemented her on remembering that as a special day. She told me her grandfather had taken part in that invasion and her whole family recognized that as a very special day.

Sort of on the lines of the military, I was watching the Military History Channel pretty solid over the past couple of days. They had some of the best programs I have ever seen. They did one hour show on the A-10 Thunderbolt (Warthog) and I never cease to be amazed at how much those craft can take and still fly. Of course I have always had a desire to fire one of those guns. It is an awesome weapon.

They also did a program on Medal of Honor Recipients which is always most interesting. I have never seen one of those brave men who did not say that the ones who gave their lives were the real heros.

They also ran a program on Bombers. This was one of the most interesting programs I have ever seen. Of course they showed a bunch of the World War II bombers and while watching, you had to be impressed with those B-17s and similar aircraft. Then they went on to the next generation of bombers and the first jet powered bombers. Then they got to the B-52s. They had some films of those monsters dropping bombs and I forgot how many bombs they said the B-52 could carry but it was way more than you would think. They said on this program that more than likely, the B-52 would last 90 years before it was deactivated. Stop and think of that for longevity.

Then they showed the B-2 Stealth Bomber. They showed this aircraft on a training run and it began dropping bombs. Then I finally figured out that they made bombs inside that aircraft and just never ran out.

I love watching that channel and seeing some of the equipment available to our military. Of course being sort of old, I really love the old stuff.

Oh, before I forget, in speaking of the incompetence of our present administration, I just heard that some boob put out some top secret information on a government WEB Site and it was called to their attention by someone from the New York Times. The report said that the top secret information gave out the locations of all of our nuclear sites. About the only thing I can say is that the liberal voters in this country have put a bunch of squirrels in charge of guarding our pecan trees. Of course I am sure that the Presidential Press Secretary will have an in depth and comprehensive report on the matter and in the end just tell us that everybody makes mistakes and we should just move on.

Well I guess I had better go and see what other goofy stuff our present administration will pull before this day ends.


Please write/call your Congressmen/women and Senators and urge them to vote against ANY and ALL legislation which will tread on any of our Constitutional Gurantees.

I am very afraid that I am not acting arrogant enough to fit in with how President Barack Hussein Obama describes us as a people.

Perhaps I should apologize. Let me think about that a moment........... Naw.

May 27, 2009 MEMORIAL/NOMINEE/TREATY

Wednesday - May 27, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Headquarters For Non Moderate Jingoistic Conspiratorial Right Wing Gun Clingers.

MEMORIAL DAY:

I hope everyone remembered to say a special prayer for our military, past and present, on the day that the Federal Government decided to celebrate Memorial Day this year. For those of you residing in the Freedom Loving People's Republic of San Francisco, that would have been last Monday, May 25th. Memorial Day is a very special day to me and I could not help but notice, and in the process be plenty offended, at the vast differences in today's political parties and the way they appeared to view this special day.

In our local paper, the (Sub) Standard Times I generally read the editorial opinions written on the editorial page which also contains letters to the editor and things of that nature. On this past Monday there were two articles featured on the editorial page.

The article written by a local Republican delegate was titled: "Today We Remember Those Who Died Serving". Of course the article expressed the writer's gratitude to those Americans and their families who have defended our freedoms while serving in the United States military. He went on to name many in his own family who were members of the U.S. military and pretty much every branch of the service were represented. This included his son who is presently a United States Marine, just back from his second tour of duty in the Middle East. He ended his article with this sentence: "Let us always be faithful to those who have died for our precious freedoms and those who continue to protect us today."

OK. That was the article written by a conservative Republican. And as I told you there was also an article written by a prominent member of the Democrat party, who is nationally known. When I tell you her name, you will recognize it immediately. Ready? Susan Estrich. You have all seen her on damn near every news channel on the planet and she is always squawking out the shrill Democrat victimized message. So here is a little about Susan's column on the same page, the same day.

Her article was titled:" Why Is It That People Don't Like Michelle Obama?" On this Memorial Day, Susan felt it necessary to point out that:

1) She is the most popular and most admired woman in the world.

2) She has smarts

3) She has beauty

4) She has style

5) She has a great husband

6) She has two beautiful children

7) She has a very handsome dog

Then she went on to say that "Everyone loves Michelle Obama". Except for half the people she ran into every day. In all fairness, she went on to say that most of these people with this opinion were Democrats. Then she felt duty bound to write a few paragraphs on Hillary Clinton. Then she returned to Michelle speaking of her wardrobe and her vegetable garden. Susan Estrich did acknowledge the fact that perhaps Michelle Obama had made a mistake when she said that her husband's run for the Presidency was the first time she had been proud of her country BUT "That was a long time ago."

Let me see if I have this right: We should all forget that statement made by Michelle Obama back during the campaign in 2008 BUT we should all still continue to harp on the fact that "There were no weapons of mass destruction located in Iraq" and should be reminded every day that George Bush was completely at fault for everything negative which happened over the past eight years.

Sorry Susan, but you can take your butt ugly face and your butt ugly attitude and put it where the sun don't shine. (Now for those of you who reside in the Worker's Province of Massachusetts, if you did not get the drift of my last statement, check with Barney Frank. I'll bet he could tell you just where that would be.)

The point of this whole section is to admit that yes, there are some major differences in the way that liberals/socialists and conservatives think and view the world. And I'm damn proud that there are those differences.

NOMINEE:

Of course, we all now know that Judge Sonia Sotomayor is Barack Obama's choice as the replacement for Judge Souter on the U.S. Supreme Court. To say that this woman would not be my first choice is a mild understatement. Judge Sotomayor is an extremely liberal Judge who has made some rather questionable statements:

"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

"Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences, or gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging."

"The court of appeals is where policy is made. And I know -- I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don't make law. I know. OK I know. I'm not promoting it. I'm not advocating it........"

Sort of sounds to me like ol' Sonia could have used one of Barack's tele prompters along about then, huh?

Then, of course, we have N.Y. Senator Chuck Schumer saying that we must be committed to DIVERSITY on our nation's highest court. HEY! Who does Schumer think he is? Joe Biden?

Then of course we have been subjected to all of the facts relating the fact that she was born to a poor family and her father died when she was nine years old. Then we must be exposed to the fact that she is diabetic.

But for some reason, the Democrats/Socialists and their henchmen, the mainstream media, neglect to mention the times when decisions handed down by Judge Sotomayor have been REVERSED by the Supreme Court. Where in our Constitution does it say that you must be born into poverty to be eligible for this highest LIFETIME appointment? Where in the Constitution does it require a Supreme Court Justice to have empathy merely because someone is poor. Where in our statutes does it say that a Supreme Court Justice must take anything other than the Constitution AS IT WAS WRITTEN into consideration?

And what really steams my clams is listening to all the so called "Moderate Republicans" who are afraid to challenge this woman's nomination. Why? Because it might alienate the Hispanic vote. So in the long run, the Moderate Republicans are identical to the Socialist Democrats. All they care about is their own re-election. They just flat don't give a damn about what is right or wrong; What is good for our country, or what will lead us to destruction. Nope, it is all about keeping their government jobs.

TREATY:

I was watching a film clip from a news program on CNN and they came up with a way in which our Second Amendment Rights could be eroded by our government through the ratification of a 12 year old treaty. This treaty called: The Inter-American Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing Of And Trafficking In Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives And Related Materials. This treaty was signed originally by President Clinton but was not ratified by Congress. I also saw in this clip a so called Republican Senator, Richard Lugar from Indiana, calling for the ratification of this treaty. In this treaty, registration of ALL firearms privately owned by people who live in participating countries is MANDATORY. It is a FELONY to not register a privately owned firearm AND it is an extraditable offense. I of course, have already written my two Senators (more than once) regarding this piece o' crap treaty. It was reported that the ratification of this treaty was a "High Priority" with Barack Hussein and his faithful dog Attorney General Eric Holder. We already know that the mutt Richard Lugar is for it.

We had better be really watchful of these varmints. If they can't get in through the front or back door, they will come in through an air vent. They are not to be trusted. And we must never forget that even though many of these elected officials have law degrees and other types of extremely impressive educational backgrounds that many of them have no real life experience and some of them, in fact a quite large number of them appear to have the I.Q. of a snuff can full of bat excrement.

MORE STUFF:

Let me make sure I have this down right. Barack Hussein Obama makes his world apology tour and returns home to take charge of the government take-over of the automobile industry; Then he makes a few tough sounding statements, which could not strike fear into Mr. Fluffy, the neutered cat. So what do North Korea and Iran do? They pretty well tell us to put it where the sun don't shine**

(** For those who don't know where that is, contact Barney Frank)

But does North Korea stop there? Nope, they fire off at least four rockets of which I am aware (the number could be higher) and test a nuclear bomb. Of course not to be outdone, Iran also tests some rockets and sends their Navy out in the Gulf, allegedly to hunt down Somali Pirates.

Now what does our President, Barack Hussein Obama do? He again makes tough statements and threatens to go to the U.N. for some additional sanctions. And then of course he pretty well insults Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by making some pretty unrealistic suggestions as to how they should conduct themselves. I equate a U.N. Sanction to Richard Simmons threatening to whip my butt. Don't mean a thing.

When will our government finally realize that the United Nations is all hat and no cattle? For those of you currently residing in the Freedom Loving Worker's Gulag of Austin, that means ALL SHOW AND NO GO; All talk and no action; or words to that effect.

And in spite of what Bill O'Reilly says on the "No Spin Zone", I think the University of Notre Dame has, how shall I put it, crapped in their breakfast. But they are in good company. The Moderate Republicans have done the same thing.

As I related last week, former Vice President Dick Cheney has been looking pretty darn good over the past few weeks. Of course I always did like his style from the beginning so I was not the least surprised when he looked like the most conservative Republican in the land. I read an article by Pat Buchannan relating to Vice President Cheney. In the article Mr. Buchannan stated that Dick Cheney was giving the Republican Party a demonstration of how to fight a popular president. "Stake out defensible high ground, do not surrender an inch, then go on the attack." That is precisely what Vice President Cheney has been doing and IT WORKS.

Until the National Republican Party starts acting in this mode, I will not contribute a dime to them at the National level. I will still support our local Republican Party and candidates as they seem to have their minds right. But at the National level, the Republican Party seems to be more interested in political correctness and not offending anyone than they are in doing what is right.

I mentioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a little earlier. If Iran keeps acting stupid and everyone pretty much feels like they are about to test a nuclear bomb, I would like a show of hands of all those who believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu will ask for permission prior to bombing the crap out of Iran.

I am sorry to report that evidently not much has been going on in the RAP community this past week. I guess they are either all dead or in jail. Surely there cannot be a third option.

Last week end some friends and I attended the NCAA Division II National Championship track meet which was held here in San Angelo. Our girls team came in second only 2 points behind the eventual championship team from Lincoln. We saw lots of really good college athletes perform and met a few of the coaches from Western Colorado.

Well it's time to head down the road and see what else these incompetent boobs in Washington have screwed up in the past hour or so.

Keep on your Senators and Congressmen/Women to slow down these idiots. Unless, of course you happen to live in Massachusetts where your Senators and at least one Congressman? are the clowns who need a "Woo Hit" put on them. In case you are not familiar with a "Woo-Hit" it is one of those tackles in a football game, that is so hard and violent, that everyone in the stadium stands up and goes, "Woooooo". And let's remember, this is not the time to be "Moderate" and "Soft" it is the time to be in an attack mode.

Later..

May 20th, 2009 Apologies / VP / Tax

Greetings once again from The West Texas Branch Of Jingoistic Gun Clinging Right Wing Smear Merchants.

This past week has been pretty interesting and pretty pathetic at the same time. I guess it all depends on whether you are a socialist or not.

APOLOGIES:

In the past I have made some rather unkind remarks directed at CIA Director Leon Panetta. After his performance this past week, I must sincerely apologized to Mr. Panetta. He showed some rare courage for an Obama appointee. Mr. Panetta actually stood behind his people in the CIA. And what really made it nice, he stood up to Nancy Pelosi who has been running completely out of control for a couple of years. I appreciated Mr. Panetta's honesty and sincerely hope he continues to do the right thing.

Before I get off the subject of apologies, I would like to point out that while I was sincere in my apology to Mr. Panetta, President Barack Obama's habit of being apparently in a "Whining Apology Mode" appears to make some unnecessary apologies to foreign leaders purely for political purposes. Sort an "Apology of Convenience" which is a reasonably hollow, insincere move. BUT, once again, President Barack Hussein Obama is a 100% hollow and insincere person so why would we expect anything different?

VICE PRESIDENTS:

For eight years members of the Democrat/Socialist Party constantly whined and moaned about how Vice President Dick Cheney was secretive and hard to approach. I do seem to remember during that time period that Vice President Cheney was interviewed a number of times and never failed to intelligently answer questions asked of him. Of course there were exceptions when Vice President Cheney declined to provide information when he felt that it was against the best interest of the American people and the American Military. But the price he paid was an eight year tirade by the liberal media against him and in some instances his family.

This past week I watched several interviews with Vice President Cheney regarding intensified interrogation techniques used on certain terrorists who were/are prisoners of our government. I found nothing in Vice President Cheney's answers which was either false, misleading or unreasonable. Of course his statements and answers did not fare well with the democrat/socialist agenda.

Then on the other hand we now have as the Vice President of the United States one Joseph Biden, who never met a microphone he didn't like. And for those of you who thought Joseph Biden spoke out of turn and said stupid stuff and told outright lies during the campaign, do not despair. Vice President Biden is still saying things which would lead one to believe that he perhaps possesses the I.Q. of a potted plant. Last week he made some statement to the idiotic press about the location of some secret location where elected officials go during dangerous situations.

Don't you just wish that the terror suspects ,whom we are presently holding, enjoyed giving out information half as much as our present Vice President? To put my views on the intelligence of Joseph Biden in proper perspective, I sort of view him as the very last lemming in line who has watched all the rest of the lemmings run off the cliff into the sea and just can't wait to get to the edge so that he can also plunge to his certain death (but look good doing it).

TAX:

I was listening to a report earlier in the week where the subject was state income taxes. I can't remember how many states they said had no state income tax, but among them were Texas and Florida. Then they asked the question about which two states were currently experiencing rapid growth in population and business moving from other states. Guess which two states they said were in the lead? Give up? Texas and Florida. They gave out one figure that states with no state income tax created 89% (for those of you presently residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco that would be EIGHTY NINE PERCENT or almost 9 out of every 10) more jobs than the states with high state income taxes. Of course California and New York were in the lead in those states where people and companies are leaving in droves.

MISCELLANEOUS:

I was listening to one morning talk radio show and the guest was some squack who had made a film which is to be shown in a California Public School District. Many parents were trying to stop the showing of the film which is slated to be presented to children in this district from grades K through 5. The film is part of some type of "Diversity" training which someone has decided should be presented to young children. According to this woman, the school system should have more say in this training than should the parents of the children. And of course this goof heifer came out with "Our diversity is our strength." I have heard this statement for too many years to even mention. And my opinion still remains that it is NOT the diversity of the American people which has made us strong, but rather the ABILITY TO WORK PAST OUR DIFFERENCES, which has made us a strong country. But the thought of some beetle who is in it for the money having more to say on the education of our children than the parents of those children makes me want to burst into flames.

But this sort of goes along with the thinking of the Obama administration. The Obama administration believes that they should have more to say about: what we own; what we drive; what we eat; what we watch; what we hear; how our money should be spent; where and in what we live; how we should feel; how our medical treatments are handled; and a myriad of other items which I believe is in better hands of individual American citizens than at the mercy of these elected fools.

I also watched a little fiasco which was put on at the White House yesterday. Of course President Barack Hussein Obama began this program by introducing Nancy Pelosi and talking about what a GREAT JOB she was doing. For a moment, I thought Obama had been bitten by a rabid lizard and had momentarily been the victim of an attack of lunacy. But then it dawned on me that probably that was what came up on the tele-prompter and he is so accustomed to obeying the prompter that he just did what came naturally.

Then I wondered if there were another Nancy Pelosi to whom he might have been referring. Then after listening to him introduce a whole multitude of varmints, it dawned upon me that he was just following his socialist tendencies and was naturally drawn to complete turds.

I watched a few more minutes of the world's most articulate and intelligent human tell the American people just exactly what they would all be driving within a few short years. But when he made reference to how great all of the California regulations were working for the citizens of that state, he lost me and I had to either turn this crap off or kick in the screen on one of my television sets. HEY BARACK!!!!! California is BROKE!! Why would you or anyone else want to pattern a government based upon the failed plans of Arnold and his predecessors?

Once again the Obama administration and our House and Senate appear to be backing some type of legislation designed to combat the interest rates instituted by the evil credit card companies. The main problem with this legislation is that while it seriously limits the changing interest rates being charged to people who are in debt up to their necks to various credit card companies, it does nothing to protect many who pay off their credit card bills every month with no interest. I have seen several programs who state that the money the credit card companies will lose on those people who owe many thousands to them, will be made up in a reduction of the cash rewards or other rewards earned by those who pay them off on time. There was even some talk about some of the credit card companies begin their monthly interest charges to EVERYONE from the moment the charge is incurred.

We have had a couple of credit cards ,which we have used for emergencies and when ordering by phone, for about 40 years. I do not recall ever paying any interest on any of the cards. Some of the rewards we have gotten back were: $1400 cash refunded on a new pickup truck; $1700 refunded on the purchase of a new Oldsmobile; Cash refunded from Discover; Cash payments on purchases from one particular company. So, for the past 40 years or so, I have paid off our credit card bills in full each month and now we are to be penalized for doing something on time. I have a request for our Senate and House of Representatives: "Stay Home"!! "Do Nothing"! "Stop Helping Us"! "Start Helping Our Enemies"! That last one would be the quickest way I can think of to really screw with Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea. I am convinced that our Congress could break those clowns within six months. Oh yeah, let our Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals handled all of their trials.

MORE STUFF:

I am sure that many of you were as shocked as I when you learned of the death of RAP Star "Dolla". It seems as if "Dolla" was at a shopping mall in Los Angeles and was gunned down. Thank God they caught the person who "Busted The Cap" on ol' "Dolla". What songs (and I use the term song loosely) did "Dolla" release, you are asking? Well to tell you the truth, I can't think of a single one.

To be perfectly honest with you all, I have just not been the same since "Tupac Shakur" was sent to the "Big CD Store In The Sky" at the hands of "Biggie Smalls". All of this coupled with the fact that "Lil' Wayne", "Lil' Kim" and "Lil' Bow-Wow" are not Lil' anymore the only place I can turn is to Hobbs, New Mexico and hope and pray that Freddie "Big Baby" Heckerd can finally get a break. That is unless he is doing time.

I also imagine that you are all as caught up in the excitement of the release of Michael Vick as you well should be. Of course the question you are all asking yourself is: Will Michael Vick be allowed to return to the National Football League? If so, for whom shall he play? Will it be the Raiders? Will it be Detroit? My personal preference would be that if he is allowed to return to the league he should be forced to play in Cleveland. After all isn't one end zone called "The Dog Pound"?

I guess that about does it for another week. This Thursday, Friday and Saturday I will be at the NCAA Division II National Finals Track Meet which will be held here in San Angelo. So I will not be on line until late Sunday.

Hope you all have a great week

May 6th, 2009 Huckabee / Flu / Judge

Greetings from the Headquarters Of West Texans Who Favor Waterboarding Of Terrorists And Are Anti-Janet Napolitano.

Well, quite a bit has happened this past week, most of it not in the best interest of the majority of Americans.

JUDGE

As you are all aware, Justice David Souter announced his retirement from the United States Supreme Court. Now it is not that I am all that unhappy to see Souter retire, but his replacement is now in the hands of a man who has as little grasp of character in a person as anyone I have ever seen in public office. Yes, that includes Bill Clinton.

Back when President Bush attempted to appoint Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, I thought that this was perhaps the lamest appointment I had ever witnessed. Of course, President Bush surpassed that when he appointed Alberto Gonzales as Attorney General.

Now while those Bush appointments were plenty questionable, our present holder of the Presidency has shot into the lead with such dandies as:

Eric Holder - Attorney General

Kathleen Sebelius - Health and Human Services Secretary

Janet Napolitano - Director of Homeland Security

Robert Gibbs - White House Press Secretary

Rahm Emanuel - White House Chief of Staff

And the list goes on.

So why should anyone expect Barack Hussein Obama to suddenly change his character and nominate someone who might be accidentally qualified for the position?

If you have such expectations, then please read the following quote from Barack Hussein Obama:

"We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled, or old -- and that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges."

Well, apparently Barack Hussein Obama has uncovered another U.S. Constitution lying around somewhere. But wait, there's more. Barack Hussein Obama further said that he would appoint Judges who have "Life Experiences" that would allow them to protect those without political clout, which he (Obama) views as the appropriate role for the court. Obama has stated that he wants Judges with "Their Own Perspective" to protect the powerless. "I would not appoint somebody who doesn't believe in the 'RIGHT TO PRIVACY'."

Not once does he mention the actual interpretation of the Constitution. Oh! But I forget, Barack Hussein Obama taught Constitutional Law at the college level. So he must be right. But I must ask him to please show me exactly where in the First Amendment does it mention the "Right to Privacy".

But Jim, it sounds like you are indicating that an articulate and intelligent person with a law degree doesn't know his backside from a bottle of warm monkey urine. YES! That is what I am saying.

I'd better move on to something else as I get a bit wild when I think of just who we might see as our next Supreme Court Justice.

FLU

Well, guess what? I heard several reports this morning that the latest word on the H1N1 Flu Virus is that it probably is not as dangerous as originally thought. They even said that the one death in Texas of a pregnant woman could not actually be attributed to the flu itself as she had a number of underlying health issues. And of course the child who died in California had come there from Mexico City.

So, apparently things were pretty much as many of us believed for over a week. Our government made the proverbial mountain out of the proverbial molehill. But trust me when I tell you that the Obama administration used this Sw - - - H1N1 virus, oops, I almost said Swine Flu, to get our attention, and the attention of the general public looking in one direction while they slip some Socialist program by us.

Also, I have to wonder why after calling it the "Swine Flu" for a good while, the Obama administration suddenly decided that it was not politically correct and began calling it the H1N1 virus.

At this particular point, I can completely understand how radical left/ultra liberal/socialist voters are still on board with this idiot regime. BUT, I am hoping that some of the people who cast their vote for these mutts as a protest, or hoping that they were actually being told the truth, have perhaps seen the error of their ways. If they have not then I have to believe that the entire bunch of them have the collective I.Q. of a Pizza Menu.

HUCKABEE:

Back last year during the Republican Presidential Campaign, I had some pretty harsh words for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. I must admit to you all that I now feel that I was

wr - - -; mis - - - - -; in er - - -; temporarily confused as to this man's real character. I have become a pretty regular viewer of his weekly program and have seen him as a guest on several other programs and have pretty well come to the conclusion that he really did have some pretty good ideas. Especially when I start comparing him to some of the other so called front runners such as John McCain and a few others. Of course I would like to see Newt Gingrich start to put his hat in the ring. I am just afraid that former Massachusetts Governor Romney cannot pull votes in the deep South; the Southwest and the Mid-West. I also seem to remember some rather liberal positions he took in the past.

I must also call attention to a guest who Mike Huckabee had on his program last week. Darryl Strawberry. From all appearances, Darryl Strawberry has finally pulled his act together and seems to really be headed on the right path and is sending out a really good message to young people. I never did question his abilities as a baseball player but had some serious questions as to his personal behavior. Now I don't and hope he is successful in his future.

PIRATES:

This past week I saw a report of a Portuguese Naval Ship operating under NATO had stopped a Somali Pirate Ship and had seized their weapons, explosives and after doing this RELEASED THE PIRATES! How lame is that? Now I am not sure how big or strong the Portuguese Navy is but evidently they were strong enough to get the drop on those Somali terrorists. But I suppose I shouldn't be all that critical. Had it been a French Naval Vessel, they probably would have surrendered to the Somali Pirates, given them all of their weapons and fuel and then headed back to a French Port to a hero's welcome. Please don't tell me that NATO is starting to approach the competence of the United Nations.

CONGRESS:

Well isn't it nice to see that the Obama administration and the Senate and the House of Representatives have our country headed in such a positive direction that the House can devote some time to the really important government legislative task of finding the answer to the NCAA College Football Championship. According to Congress, the BCS ( For those of you currently residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would be the Bowl Championship Series), system just isn't getting the job done. OK. Let me see if I have this straight. The NCAA and the BCS are not capable of handling their own business, so we must get a group who cannot get our mail delivered on time or for all practical purposes agree on anything other than their own pay raises, and they will find the answer?

Let me make this perfectly clear so that even those residing in the "Freedom Loving People's Province of Massachusetts" can understand. Our elected officials are, in the words of Charles Krauthammer, PARALYZINGLY STUPID, on practically every subject other than their own re-elections. And I sometimes wonder about that. Are they all that smart or is the voting public all that stupid? But in their infinite wisdom, Congress has figured out that NCAA Football falls under Interstate Commerce.

I will refer to a recent statement made by Alan Keyes who said: "It is as if we have INSANE CHILDREN in charge of our government."

Great statement by Mr. Keyes and his accuracy is, as William F. Buckley would have said, "Fastidiously Correct".

**This is going to be a big week for Dustin.

Please let us all pray that this young man comes through in good shape.

I really shouldn't even mention this to you since I only received ONE, yes that's 1, Cinco de Mayo card. BUT not one single Cinco de Mayo present. But in spite of your insensitivity, I will make mention that Cinco de Mayo commemorates a day on which the Mexican forces under the command of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin defeated superior in number French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. This was the first defeat suffered by French forces in almost 50 years. Mexico actually lost this war but did have a revolution and ran the French out of Mexico in 1867.

The Cinco de Mayo day is celebrated as a VOLUNTARY holiday and is celebrated in the State of Puebla with limited observation in the remainder of Mexico. It is actually recognized more in the United States than in many regions of Mexico. IT IS NOT MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY!! Mexican Independence Day was September 16, 1810.

I read a recent article which told the story of Nagasaki resident, Mr. Tsutomu Yamaguchi, who was on a business trip to Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. The first Atomic Bomb blast caught him in the open, and he was badly burned. After stumbling through the shattered city, he managed to get a train to return to his home town. After receiving treatment for his injuries, he managed to report back to work to his company in Nagasaki on the morning of August 9. His boss demanded an explanation for his bandaged appearance and when told of the occurrences in Hiroshima on August 6, did not believe Mr. Yamaguchi. Of course the Japanese media was keeping the news of the explosion from the general population. So just as his boss was screaming at Mr. Yamaguchi and berating him for lying, there was a blinding flash..... Mr. Yamaguchi, now 93 years old, has been formally certified as one of the very few survivors of BOTH NUCLEAR BLASTS. He was about 2 miles from the center of both blasts.

I don't think I want Mr. Yamaguchi to plan any of my trips. But it just goes to show you that if your time isn't up, it just isn't up.

MORE STUFF:

I have not been able to confirm this but I did get a little drift that Jay-Z and Beyonce were on the outs. Don't you just hate it when two quality people just can't get it right?

I am sure that the RAP/Hip-Hop world is saddened if Jay-Z can't get his life together. And after I have given it the thought which it deserves, I say, WHO CARES?

Ah, but San Angelo, Texas was truly blessed this past week with a personal appearance by RAP/Hip-Hop Star CHAMILLIONAIRE. This music great came to celebrate the birthday of Promoter Sidney "Big Sid" Walker..... Now as if that were not enough, attendees were also treated to appearances by local Hip-Hop artist C-Mo, Now as if that still were not enough also playing on this star studded bill were Dorrough and 4-Dice.

Now I know that you folks in Hobbs, New Mexico think you had made it big when you had local Promoter Jamee Meridyth and local RAP star Freddie "Big Baby: Heckard but just try to match the previously mentioned line up. I guess that Meridyth going to the Federal Joint for dealing Cocaine could have had a little something to do with the Hobbs failure on the RAP scene.

April 30th, 2009 Specter / Actors / Swine

Thursday - April 30, 2009

Hello once again from the Headquarters For Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Huge Carbon Footprint Jingoistic Extremists.

SPECTER:

OK, let me get started by saying a couple of words regarding Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter jumping ship from the Republican to the Democrat Party.............

GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!!!

Not enough? OK, then let me add this thought:

TAKE JOHN MC CAIN WITH YOU.

Arlen Specter leaving the Republican Party is actually not news of Biblical proportions. Actually, Specter left the Republican Party a long time back.

I know that this moves the Democrats/Socialists closer to the 60 vote super majority in the Senate but in reality what difference does it really make in the long run. More often than not, Arlen Specter along with Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins regularly vote with the Democrats/Socialists. And they are not the only ones who bear watching. Of course the media in their usual fashion tried to make this look like the end of life as we know it but I simply do not believe that it is all that big of a deal. Specter is a mutt today, was a mutt yesterday, and will be a mutt tomorrow.

ACTORS;

Last week I managed to force myself to watch a couple of programs on FOX News Channel on which actor Charles Groden was a guest. Charles Groden reminds me of Barack Hussein Obama in one sense. If he has a script to follow and a director telling him what to do and how many times to do it, he is acceptable in certain roles. Usually the role of a cowardly wimp pretty well suits him.

But for the past few years, Groden has fancied himself as quite the expert on political matters. And of course like everyone else he is entitled to his own opinion. But to give this idiot a forum from which he can spout his liberal/socialist views is pretty lame.

This past week on both programs, Charles Groden took up the fight against: The Felony Murder Rule. Of course he began to explain his interpretation of the Felony Murder Rule and I got completely lost. According to this clown the Felony Murder Rule allows the police to file murder charges against an individual who did not actually participate in the murder and might be home, asleep in bed when the murder occurred miles away. Now I am not sure of just exactly how much legal training Charles Groden has had but his explanation of the Felony Murder Rule was, as William F. Buckley would have said, Fastidiously Incorrect.

This is how the Felony Murder Rule has been explained to me over the past 51 years: When a person is in the process of committing a felony crime and a death occurs as a result of the actions of the perpetrator, then that person or persons may have First Degree Murder charges filed on them. Even if the death was unintended.

Evidently Charles Groden and I have been trained somewhat differently. Of course I am sure there are a few other differences in our basic characters.

I am not sure but Charles Groden might be better served if he could search out the answer to the question of why Goofy can talk and Pluto can't since they are both dogs.

My only other comment is why would anyone, with an I.Q. higher than a school zone speed limit sign, ever intentionally have this ass as a guest on their program.

SWINE:

As you are all aware, for the past week we have been under a watch for a possible pandemic of the "Swine Flu". Of course if you listen to the media and politicians you will probably not leave your home and will probably try to not have contact with family members. Now as all of you are aware there is a HUGE difference between a PANDEMIC and your common every-day EPIDEMIC. But for those of you residing in "The Freedom Loving People's Republics of San Francisco and Massachusetts" here is the difference;

EPIDEMIC - spreading rapidly of something such as a disease among people in a community.

PANDEMIC - an epidemic over a large region.

From what I heard this morning, there have been around 100 confirmed cases of Swine Flu in the United States. There have been reports of 1 death of a child who came from Mexico to California where he died. Now just for argument's sake, let's take a look at our very own PANDEMIC: There are 300,000,000 people in the United States. So you take the figure of 100 and then divide that by 300,000,000. The answer should come out something like this:

.00000033 which works out to roughly three one hundred thousandths of one percent. Not exactly a PANDEMIC at this point.

Do you remember several years back when the big global scare was the dreaded BIRD FLU? And the figures which everyone afraid to venture outside their own hermetically sealed bedrooms? They reported something like 69 or 70 deaths in China. Now that would be 70 out of one and one half BILLION people. Not exactly like the plague brought down upon the Egyptians when Moses was trying to secure the release of the Children of Israel from Pharaoh.

So the thought which began to creep into my evil mind was that just perhaps the present Obama administration just might use this flu outbreak and a couple of other items to divert our attention from the fact that hardly a day goes by when President Barack Hussein Obama either say or do something so incredibly goofy as to make us question the fact that he is reportedly the most intelligent and articulate human on planet earth.

But thankfully we have Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano close at hand to jump in front of a camera and microphone and give us sage advice such as:

1) Cover your face when you sneeze

2) If you feel sick, stay at home

3) Wash your hands frequently

4) If you feel bad, do not go out in the public

Boy! Are we ever fortunate to have someone with the vast knowledge and experience of Janet Napolitano around to tell us not only what to do, but how to do it as well?

We do not yet have a Surgeon General so I was thinking that just perhaps the Obama administration could coax Joycelyn Elders out of retirement to be on hand to give us mere mortals handy hints on how to live our lives.

While still on the subject of the Swine Flu, I have heard several reports that Mexico has experienced more deaths than any other location from this highly dangerous virus. I also heard several of them ask this highly intelligent, almost Larry King-like, question:

"Why are there so many deaths in Mexico due to this outbreak of Swine Flu?"

One must wonder of all reporters are this stupid. BUT, I believe I have, through geometric logic and natural physical laws, come up with an answer and I will try to convey it to the media in fairly generic and simple terms.

1) The disease has been traced as originating in Mexico.(That means it started there)

2) Mexico has an extremely high percentage of poor people.

3) Only the wealthy people in Mexico can afford medical treatment

4) Mexico has very poor cleanliness habits and facilities

5) Mexico has a very corrupt government who care only about maintaining power.

Those reasons should give even someone as stupid as reporters some ideas on why the incidents of death due to this disease are more frequent in Mexico.

And when you look at reason #5 you must ask yourselves, just who do those Mexican politicians think they are, U.S. Senators and Congressmen?

STUPIDITY:

One quick final word regarding the buzzing of New York City by Air Force One. I do not know who ordered this flight but it obviously was someone who used extremely poor judgement. I listened to a number of the calls in to the 9-1-1 operators. Those people were genuinely and justifiably scared. But of course President Barack Hussein Obama was completely ignorant of the fact that this flyover photo-op was taking place. OK, if he didn't know, then who did? I seriously doubt if any of the Air Force One pilots would take this upon themselves without approval from some pretty high up authority.

While we are on the subject of stupidity, I feel duty bound to bring out a small film clip I saw which was of Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who was calling for an investigation into those in the Bush Administration who had actually authorized some of the "Enhanced Interrogation" on some of the terrorist prisoners. Congresswoman Lee assured the audience that she was not interested in prosecution of the "IMPLEMENTATORS". I thought on this for a few minutes and started to try and look up the word, "IMPLEMENTATORS". Imagine my surprise when I could not locate the word and the thought entered into my head that just perhaps Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was dumber than a stump.

Along these same lines, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was running her mouth and calling for a "Truth Commission" along the lines of the "9/11 Commission" which was so effective. This "Truth Commission" would delve into the matter of just who OK'd the "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques" and further just who knew about them in advanced. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did not want a commission of this type, which sort of leads me to believe that ol' Harry might just have known about the techniques pretty early in the game. As did Nancy Pelosi, I am sure. Probably the strain of her eyes bugging out so far might have caused some pressure on the part of her brain which controls her memory. Or perhaps she is just so stupid as to not know what it was she heard. Either reason could be acceptable.

MISCELLANEOUS STUFF:

You will notice that former Vice President Al Gore's name appears for the first time in a while. But this week, Al Gore has been testifying before a Congressional hearing on a subject that is certainly near the top of my priorities. It ranks just below "The Mating Habits of Lemmings". The subject is, of course, Global Warming.

Funny thing is that an actual expert on the subject, Lord Christopher Monckton, was also to appear before this same committee. We all know Al Gore's views on Global Warming and Al is firmly convinced that a group of beings on our planet who cannot get your mail delivered on time is actually responsible for the prevention of "Man Made Global Warming".

But, Lord Monckton upon arrival in the United States from Great Britain, was told that he would NOT be allowed to testify. This was only done when the Democrats serving on this committee found out that Lord Monckton would be the witness called to oppose Al Gore's idiotic views. According to one article I read, "The House Democrats don't want Al Gore humiliated", which from all that I have seen is not all that hard to do.

Let's see now, Lord Christopher Monckton is a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Al Gore is the former Vice President and head ass kisser to Bill Clinton. Lord Monckton describes Al Gore's Movie, An Inconvenient Truth, as "Materially, seriously, serially inaccurate. The Armageddon scenario that he depicts is not based on any scientific view."

It sort of reminds me of a debate on the sport of boxing between Rocky Marciano and Richard Simmons. One of them knows quite a bit about the subject and the other knows NOTHING.

Normally I don't have particularly good luck with people who come out to do repairs on my home. But yesterday was really different. We had a young man come out to repair and install some security lights and to install a new ceiling fan in our bedroom. This young man was pleasant and explained what was going on as he did the work and was finished in record time. We visited for a few moments on the subject of pickup trucks and older model cars. I will request this young man the next time I need an electrician.

Several days ago we had some really high winds here in San Angelo and one of my satellite dishes blew over. This was the dish which received our local channels. The local repair man for DISH Network came out at exactly the time he said he would be here. He of course spotted the problem immediately and repaired it very rapidly and when we did the check to see if the dish was going to pick up the stations he showed me some channels which I didn't even know existed which were up in the 7000 range which also carried our local channels and they can normally be received when the regular local channels go out. He was a really nice man and we began to talk and I found out that he lived a little over a mile from my house and before he left he even gave me his cell phone number so that if I had any problems that I could contact him and he would work me in. I thought that was really nice and I just wish all repair people could be as nice and thoughtful as were these two nice men.

QUOTES:

"It used to be said that self-preservation is the first law of nature. But much of what has been happening in recent times in the United States, and in Western civilization in general, suggests that survival is taking a back to the shibboleths of political correctness." ............................................ THOMAS SOWELL

"I never take a step in foreign policy unless I am assured that I shall be able eventually to carry out my will by force.".................. THEODORE ROOSEVELT

"None of the four wars in my lifetime came about because we were too strong. It is weakness--------- it is weakness that invites adventurous adversaries to make mistaken judgements."............................. RONALD REAGAN

The reason I am a day late is due to the repairs which I told you about earlier and also we went to a Tom Green County Republican fund raiser last night. THe speaker was Texas Governor Rick Perry and I must say that he gave a very good talk. He spoke about a number of State Governors who were all on board in taking it to the courts if necessary to insure that the federal government did not violate the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. He also advised us that Texas was one of only 6 states who were operating with a surplus.

Anyway, we have to work on getting some real conservatives back in control of the Senate and House. This man who calls himself President is not concerned with the well being of anyone other than Barack Hussein Obama.

But keep this in mind. If Barack Hussein Obama lets a day go by without saying or doing something really stupid, he has an appointed staff who will pick up the slack and do and say some really goofy stuff.

See ya next week

April 25th, 2009 Environment / Tea / Wimps


Wednesday - April 22, 2009

Hello once again from the Central Time Zone Ammunition Hoarding Jingoistic Gun Clinging Bible Thumping Sons Of Texas.

I am a little late getting with the program today. Unlike most of you "Right Wing Extremists" who belong on Janet Napolitano's "Potential Domestic Terrorist" watch list, I have been celebrating "Earth Day" and attempting to do everything within my power to make our planet as "Green" as possible. I mean, after all, I live in TOM GREEN County so I am just naturally on board with the environmental movement.

ENVIRONMENT:

What did you do to celebrate "Earth Day"? I imagine this question is running through your minds. So let me just run down my "Earth Day" activities. I will try to be brief and keep this in chronological order:

1. Left my house this morning and early in my walk, I spotted a coyote at the edge of our subdivision so I promptly shot him. How is this helping, you ask? Simple there were a flock of black vultures flying overhead so I figured the dead coyote would provide food for them.

2. When the vultures landed, the thought came to my mind that there were lots of boat tail grackles around who also looked hungry so I shot a couple of the vultures so that the grackles could feed in peace. How is this helping our planet to be green, you ask? OK, keep in mind that there are more vultures than coyotes and there are more grackles than vultures. So we must subsidize the grackles.

3. Then seeing that the grackles were not feeding in gentlemanly fashion I got my shotgun and fired amongst them killing approximately 25 grackles. Why do that, you inquire? Stay with me now, I suddenly realized that since there were more vultures than coyotes; and more grackles than vultures; there were a hell of a lot more fire ants than there were grackles. The fire ant have to be fed also, right?

4. So in typical democrat fashion, I will let the fire ants feed overnight and get to feeling pretty comfortable and tomorrow I think I'll poison their little butts.

I got this environmental model from watching how our federal government operates. It is called kill off the strong so that the most worthless can survive.

Actually, my wife and I went to a AARP Defensive Driving course so that we could get a reduction in our auto insurance rates. I know that's not very "Green" but lower insurance rates are a bit higher on my list of priorities than is "Earth Day". What a complete load of crap.

I heard last week that the Environmental Protection Agency had completed a study which determined that "Global Warming" caused a change in the ozone layer which could have a negative effect on the United States. This study was begun in 2000. 2000? You mean it took these dips NINE YEARS to complete this idiotic study?

I think I might have an idea on how to reduce carbon emissions into our atmosphere. Outlaw exhaling. OK. How do you outlaw exhaling? Simple. Outlaw inhaling. Hopefully the democrats/socialists will follow this legislation and we can get our country back on the right track.

TEA:

Last Wednesday, my wife and I attended a "Tea Party" which was held on the grounds of the Tom Green County courthouse. There were close to 3,000 people in attendance. Also at the same time, the Tom Green County Democrat Party held a protest at the same location. They were behind a rope barricade and held up old Obama/Biden yard signs. I must say that most of the home made signs at the main "Tea Party" showed some creativity and every speaker spoke about big government and over spending by our elected officials Republican as well as Democrat. A friend of mine made a head count of the democrat protesters and at their peak there were 28 of them.

Of course most of the liberal/socialist people didn't have the slightest idea about what T-E-A actually stood for. So for those of you living in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" I am going to fill you in on this information; Taxed Enough Already, so you see, the first letter of each word in this slogan forms the acronym T-E-A. Of course I saw many of the idiot liberal/socialists on several news programs refer to the people who attended these gatherings as "Tea Baggers". Now some of them might have known what "Tea Bagging" was but I strongly imagine that most of them didn't. So for those of them who want to know exactly what the term they were using means, I suggest they contact Barney Frank or one of his running mates.

WIMPS:

Where do I begin? Let me begin with Bill O'Reilly. On one of his programs last week one of his guests asked him this question: Do you feel safer with Janet Napolitano as head of Homeland Security? O'Reilly, Mr. No Spin, stuttered and fumbled like Obama without a tele prompter and finally after a long silent pause, O'Reilly said that he hadn't thought on it long enough to make a decision but he thought he felt safe with this woman at the helm of our Homeland Security Department. Mr. No Spin, Mr. Tough Question. Wimped out like a whipped dog.

How can we talk about Wimps without mentioning the President of the United States. His performance in Europe was exceeded on the Wimp scale by his visit to Mexico and Latin America. He apologized in all three places and blamed his own country for bearing the lion's share of the blame for practically every problem in the world today.

Speaking of wimping out, Barack Hussein Obama said that no prosecution would be forthcoming against anyone involved in the enhanced interrogation of Middle East Terrorists. Then in the past couple of days, Barack Hussein Obama has decided that he will leave the matter of prosecution up to the Justice Department under the capable leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder. God save us from this socialist administration.

Also last week I was watching one of the FOX News programs and Geraldo Rivera was a guest on the program. He immediately began to bad mouth Texas Governor, Rick Perry who had made a speech earlier in the week. In that speech, Governor Perry told a little bit of the history of the State of Texas and reminded the listeners that when Texas joined the Union, Texas was an INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC. He also made mention that Texas had reserved the right to actually split up into 5 separate states.

The point of Governor Perry's speech was to call everyone's attention to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which reads:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are RESERVED to the States respectively, or to the people."

The Texas Governor along with the Governors of a number of other states are attempting to bring out this amendment to the people of the United States Keep in mind that this was one of the original ten amendments which are known even to the residents of the "Freedom Loving People's Province of Austin" as the BILL OF RIGHTS.

Governor Perry, in the speech which I heard did not mention secession but Geraldo made it sound as if Governor Perry was threatening secession. How can I put this? OK. I think I have it. Geraldo Rivera is a LYING WIMP.

Now I have not agreed with Governor Perry on a number of items but I did like his stance on Gun Control in the State of Texas and I like his stance on the 10th Amendment.

HISTORY:

Yesterday, April 21st was the anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto. In 1836 the Mexican Army under General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna was soundly defeated by the Texas Army under General Sam Houston. In this battle, Santa Anna was captured dressed in the uniform of a Corporal. Since I was a small child, April 21st was a State Holiday and the public schools observed the day with no classes. I don't know when all this changed but I doubt seriously if the significance of this day is even mentioned in our public schools. Lowers the self esteem of some students. I just wonder when the same will be said about July 4th?

"A mutton head, after an education at West Point --- or Harvard --- is still a mutton head"............................... THEODORE ROOSEVELT

MORE STUFF:

This week I heard a commercial but was unable to catch it from the very beginning. I don't even remember what they were trying to sell us but near the end of the commercial they asked us what were we going to do with our tax refunds, were we going to "BE SELFISH AND PUT IT INTO SAVINGS"? Or were we gong to buy their stupid product. So I guess those quotes from "Keynes At Harvard" weren't too far off were they? The book told us that the socialists hate savings. But I cannot see how saving money for your family is being selfish.

I read an article in our local liberal rag telling us the story of a man named Wally B. Kyle. He was a B-24 pilot in World War ii. He was involved in raids over 63 years ago and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. He recently received his medal , IN THE MAIL.

OK. I am sure that those of you who are as heavily involved in the RAP Community as I will be relieved to find out that Rapper formerly known as "Lil' Bow Wow" is now 22 years old and from this day forward will be known as just plain old "Bow Wow". I don't know about the rest of you but this has had me worried for quite some time now.

Well there are still a few hours left in Earth Day so I guess I will go outside and see if there are some other environmentally sound deeds I can perform. Or, I might just go to bed.

Later

April 8th, 2009 Europe/Control/Consensual

Wednesday - April 8, 2009

Greetings from the Association For Jingoistic Unapologetic Conspiratorial Smear Merchants.

EUROPE:

I have spent a good part of the past week in an attempt to find a film clip in which the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, was NOT apologizing and blaming the United States for the vast majority of the world problems. Perhaps the President finds it rewarding to kiss up to the backsides of the leaders of European countries as well as several of the Arab leaders.

Excuse me while I disagree completely with Bill O'Reilly. I watched a portion of his program in which a video of the President, Barack Hussein Obama, bowing to the leader of Saudi Arabia. It was obvious that Barack Obama bowed to the Saudi ruler. I do not recall having ever seen a United States President bow to any foreign leader in the past 72 years. Mr. O'Reilly in a rather poor attempt to appear "Fair and Balanced" and of course doing his best to show the American public that his personal political view was that of a "Moderate", stated that he couldn't actually call what Barack Hussein Obama did as a bow. Funny, a Muslim lady who viewed the same tape as O'Reilly and I saw said that he definitely bowed to the Saudi ruler and she thought it definitely sent the wrong message.

I can remember many speeches and TV appearances by President George W. Bush during the eight years of his Presidency, and cannot recall one single time when he attempted to blame his predecessor, Bill Clinton, for anything. Nor did he blame Jimmy Carter for the state of world affairs. Apparently President Barack Hussein Obama does not recognize that blaming the previous administration for present problems is very Presidential.

But what can you expect from a President who felt it necessary to blame America for all of the problems presently faced by the "Global Community". It is also readily apparent that President Barack Hussein Obama is far more interested in trying to turn our country into a carbon copy of Socialistic European countries. It is fairly obvious that the Constitution of the United States is not particularly important in the Obama scheme of things.

SCIENCE FICTION:

I once read a science fiction novel many years ago. The book was re-released in 1957 which is close to the time when I first read it. The book was titled "The Lost Continent". The setting for this story was in the year 2116. It spoke of the planet earth ,which after an apocalyptic war, was divided into two hemispheres, East and West. The Western Hemisphere was all of the earth from pole to pole which was located between 30 degrees W. longitude and 175 degrees W. longitude. The Western Hemisphere was governed by the "Pan American Federation" and the "United States of North America" was part of this federation.

The Eastern Hemisphere which was the remainder of the globe was in an upheaval between the Empire of China who was fighting the rogue African continent for the European continent. Most of Europe had been wiped out in the great global war and was inhabited by primitive tribes.

It was a death sentence for anyone who lived in the Western Hemisphere to enter the Eastern Hemisphere and of course the same rules were in place for the Eastern Hemisphere. Of course the borders were patrolled regularly by the military. This story dealt with the adventures of a young Naval Lieutenant who had problems with the engines on his vessel and he lost power. The vessel was capable of flight, surface travel, or undersea travel. But without power they could only float. Of course the story went on to describe the adventures of this Lieutenant and several of his men who while fishing for food in a small outboard craft crossed the 30 degree W. longitude into enemy country.

Now while all of this is pure science fiction and has nothing to do with today's problems, I found it rather interesting that this author pretty well had a view of a future in which there was a "Pan American Federation" and a "United States of North America". It reminded me somewhat of all of the things we have heard of the formation of a "North American Union". And of course in the other hemisphere the main military power being China. With Africa as a wild card in the East.

This book was originally published in 1916 under the title "Beyond Thirty" and the author was none other than the creator of Tarzan, Edgar Rice Burroughs. I found it rather unusual that Mr. Burroughs while writing pure escapist fiction, actually had a fairly good insight into futuristic concepts.

I watched a program a couple of weeks back in which the actual inventor of the flip cellular phone was interviewed. He freely admitted that his idea for a flip phone came directly from the communicators used by the crew of the "Starship Enterprise" in the TV series "Star Trek".

Beam me up Scotty. I am being attacked by "Tribbles".

CONTROL:

We have all watched the tragedy in Binghamton, NY in which 13 people were murdered with the shooter finally committing suicide himself. Almost immediately gun control bozos began to call for weapons bans and from all accounts, complete suspension of Second Amendment Rights.

OK. Let me go over this one more time for the liberal/socialist folks who happen to get this via forward.

Just for the sake of argument, let's say that I am an individual who, for what ever reason, has decided that I am going to enter a place of business, or a school, or a hospital or an automobile dealership or a bank, and while there I am going to try to kill everyone with whom I come in contact. Then when done with my killing spree, I am going to shoot myself,thereby ending my own life. Now at this point you should have a picture in your mind of someone who is going to do this deed then end his own life.

If all this is true, why in the hell would I give a damn bout some idiotic gun control law? Now carry this one more step. If someone is a killer for hire, or an armed robber or a criminal who decides to arm himself before committing a serious felony crime, I strongly imagine that they never once even stop to consider any firearms law, whether it be at the federal or state level.

As I finished the above paragraph, I listened to Attorney General Eric Holder once again call for a ban on the sale of "Assault Weapons". We better be on our toes or this Obama administration is going to gradually erode or Second Amendment rights.

When will the liberals in this country realize that each individual is responsible for his/her own acts. And the conduct of the individual is just completely disregarded by the left leaning people.

CONSENSUAL:

I was listening to the Laura Ingraham Show on Monday morning and she had a couple of guests; Anna Brown and Pat Robertson. These two ladies, at least one of which I understood to say had a psychology degree, had come up with, according to them, a "New Philosophy" for "Living in Harmony". Now according to Anna Brown in her article:

Consensual living is a process, a philosophy, a mind set, by which we seek to live in "Harmony" with our families and communities. (Sounds good, right? Well stay tuned.) It involves finding a mutually agreed upon solutions where the needs of "Both Parties" are not only considered, but addressed. Everyone's wants or needs are EQUALLY VALID, REGARDLESS OF AGE.

Conflicting wants or needs are discussed and mutually agreeable solutions are created or negotiated which meet the underlying needs of all parties.

Now while all of this looks good in print, neither of these ladies, regardless of their educational background, had common sense enough to pour horse urine out of a cowboy boot with directions written on the heel.

When asked the question if perhaps the age of one of the individuals, (parent and child) could make a difference insofar as resolving a solution. I believe it was Anna Brown who stated that a child had a better grasp of their wants or needs than perhaps the parent. I could not believe that these two educated squacks had so little grasp of reality.

Let's pose this little conflict: A mother and a 4 year old child are in a grocery store and it is about an hour prior to meal time. The child wants candy and wants it NOW. Of course most mothers would deny the child his/her request. The child can either accept the parent's decision OR can throw a wall eyed fit. According to these two heifers, this child has a better grasp of their wants/needs than does the parent.

Where were these two idiot women when I was growing up. My Grandmother Murphy had quite a different method of resolving conflict and I am not sure that my self esteem entered the equation. NOR SHOULD IT HAVE.

Neither of these beetles could give a straight answer and all they came up with was more of this "Can't we all just get along" philosophy. These people are fairly typical of the far left liberal mind set.

APOLOGIES:

At this point let me make this statement; I do not blame America for all of the world's problems. I do not feel like we owe Europe or the Middle Eastern nations an apology. I do not feel guilty about living in the most powerful nation, (at least for the time being) on the planet. But let me share with you a little quote:

"In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. Instead if celebrating you 'Dynamic Union' and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges. There have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive." (For those of you residing in the People's Republic Of San Francisco, derisive means scornful or to ridicule). This statement was made on his recent European tour by the United States President, Barack Hussein Obama. He managed to get this point in as well as making sure that the Turks were made aware that America was NOT a Christian Nation. No, it is a Citizen Nation. OK, so is Venezuela. So is Cuba. So is France.

Well Mr. President, it sounded to me as if you were being just a bit arrogant, dismissive, and derisive about YOUR OWN COUNTRY.

Perhaps our President feels duty bound to kiss the backslides of European and Arab leaders, but I don't believe I want to play that game. If he really hustles, he can get an apology out to Somalia for a U.S. ship being in International Waters, thereby causing the Somali Pirates extra work.

KEYNES AT HARVARD: Published 1960

"Traditional left-wing demands for greater Constitutional rights actually disguise a plot to do away with the present Constitution altogether. Stuart Chase and other Keynesian agitators have questioned the fundamental validity of the Constitution of the United States. Chase has advised his readers that the Constitution is 'outmoded' and should be scrapped in favor of 'more effective federal control' and to 'circumvent the old doctrine of checks and balances, by setting up BOARDS and COMMISSIONS which like the Federal Trade Commission, combine legislative, judicial and administrative powers. This matches the Keynesian concept of a STRONG CENTRAL GOVERNMENT without checks and balances, which in effect would allow one bureaucratic body to be policeman, judge, jury and executioner." ------ Folks, these professional politicians have pretty well got us to this point right now. If we allow this present administration to go unchecked, we will cease to be a sovereign republic. Just look at how our Constitution has been interpreted and butchered by elected officials in our lifetimes. It is time for it to stop.

I for one do not have any desire to see a One World Government or a One World Currency. If the French want to have a Socialist form of government, so be it. Same holds true for Great Britain, Germany or any other European nation. But do not try to sell that to Americans.

MISCELLANEOUS:

Here is a little item which I got which was clipped from a newspaper:

"To all hunters who kill animals for food, shame on you; you ought to go to the store and buy the meat that was made there, where no animals were harmed." - - - How do these people get to be in the majority? Beats me. No, actually it is pretty simple. The Republican Party had control of the White House, the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. So what do they do? They squandered their majority on a bunch of useless crap and spent money on some really goofy projects and FORGOT their conservative voters who had placed them in office. They began to act just like typical Washington politicians for the largest part. And I place more blame on them than I do the Democrats/Socialists.

I heard a news report last week in which they said that there was a survey conducted in Austin, Texas. I did not hear over what time period this survey covered, but the results were pretty amazing. During this specified time period, Austin hospital records were checked and showed that over 2,000 emergency room visits were made by 9, yes that's nine people. ER personnel told investigators that many people made multiple emergency room visits with little or no need.

One news report stated that Taliban representatives have said that the U.S. was weak and their ideas of reaching a consensus through dialogue was absurd. Well, looks like me and the Taliban agree on that one thing.

On this week in history, here are a few of the notable events;

1792 - George Washington casts the first Presidential veto, rejecting a bill to apportion

representatives among the states. (April 5)

1889 - George Eastman begins selling the Kodak camera (April 6)

1959 - Scientists at Los Alamos, New Mexico, produce the first atomic-generated

electricity (April 7)

1970 - John Wayne wins his only Oscar for his role in True Grit ( April 7)

1913 - The Seventeenth Amendment, which requires Senators to be elected by direct

popular vote, is ratified. (April 8)

1865 - Robert E. Lee surrenders his Confederate army to Ulysses S. Grant (April 9)

1942 - Seventy-five thousand starving American and Filipino defenders on the Bataan

Peninsula in the Philippines are surrendered to the Japanese (April 9)

2003 - In Baghdad, Iraqis and U.S. Soldiers celebrate the fall of Saddam Hussein by

toppling a giant statue of the dictator. (April 9)

1942 - The Japanese begin the Bataan Death March (April 10)

1945 - American troops liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany (April 11)

1951 - President Truman relieves General Douglas MacArthur of command for publicly

criticizing his Korean War policy. (April 11)

That about does it for another week. I think I will continue my search for a magazine which DOES NOT have a photograph, drawing, likeness or caricature of Barack Hussein Obama on the cover.

April 1st, 2009 BANS/CONTROLS/NAMES

Wednesday - April 1, 2009

Greetings once again from the West Texas Center For Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Jingoistic Ammunition Hoarders.

Each week that passes makes me wonder if the Obama Administration can outdo itself in absolute stupidity. Then each week the Obama Administration proves that they can become more absurd than in previous weeks.

BANS:

Now not to be outdone by the Obama Socialist idiots, the California Legislature shows that it can waste taxpayer time and money with the best of them. I heard a news report this week that the California Legislature, yes the same California Legislature who along with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger have put the State of California in a $17 billion dollar deficit (For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, that would mean that your state has overspent their available funds by $17 billion dollars), have come up with another stellar idea for a legislative masterpiece. They are considering putting a BAN on black automobiles. Why, you ask? Easy. By banning black automobiles, the State of California will take the lead in, according to their idiot legislators, helping their "Carbon Emissions Program." Now tell the truth. I would like a show of hands of those who actually believe that the color of the automobiles will have a significant effect on carbon emissions. Has the California Legislature been stricken with an attack of lunacy? Or have they all been bitten by rabid marmosets? Or have a whole bunch of incompetent boobs been elected to public office? I believe that I will vote for the incompetent boob reason.

CONTROL:

I heard on several news programs this past week that the Obama Administration is not satisfied with control over the salaries and management of companies who received Federal Bailout Funds. Nope, they also wish to control the salaries and management of companies who DID NOT receive bailout funds BUT do business with the bailout recipients. Where in the hell will this all end? Do they intend to try and run every business in the nation? My guess would be ABSOLUTELY. I thought that the Clinton Administration had a real freak show insofar as cabinet appointees and administrative staff. But the Obama Administration is even worse. They not only took some of the more obnoxious Clinton staffers and made a place for them, but the Obama butt babies are actually proving to be more corrupt than the Clinton idiots.

The only one I wouldn't mind seeing Obama put on from the Clinton years would be former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders. Now don't get me wrong, Joycelyn Elders was, let me see if I can come up with an analogy, OK I think I have it. If incompetence and stupidity were people, Joycelyn Elders would be INDIA. BUT she said some really funny stuff and kept things in an uproar during her brief tenure in office. To give you an idea of just how goofy she was, even Al Gore found her competence to be lacking. Now when someone as goofy as Al Gore thinks that someone is inept, they are in deep fecal matter.

Along the lines of CONTROL, I watched a program in which the Governor of South Carolina spoke. He said that there were stimulus funds which he had refused as the acceptance of them would have cost the taxpayers of his state by the state having to increase taxes in order to meet some of the federal guidelines. Not too much of a surprise. The Governor stated that the Federal Government was attempting to go behind his back in order to force the funds onto South Carolina. The Democratic National Committee is running ads in order to convince South Carolina citizens to try and force the Governor to change his mind and accept the funds. The program then ran one of their ads.

I am convinced that the Obama machine, which is almost impossible to differentiate from the Chicago mob controlled machine, will not be satisfied until they have all of us dependent upon the Federal Government for EVERYTHING.

NAMES:

All right. I certainly hope that none of you are still using the terms: "TERRORISM" or "WAR ON TERROR". That is just not politically correct anymore. And you all know just exactly where political correctness fits into my scheme of things. Anyway, the Obama Administration and Incompetent Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have come up with some alternate names to use in place of these politically incorrect words.

TERRORISM = "Man Caused Disaster"

WAR ON TERROR = "Overseas Contingency Operations"

Now this is no joke. These are actually the terms that this bunch of Socialists have chosen to replace "Terrorism" and "War on Terror".

There now, don't you all feel better? Keep in mind, this incompetent President wants to sit down and create a dialogue with terrorists ( or maybe Angry Dust Bunnies would be more appropriate). Surely you can all tell from just the first couple of months that those who want to harm our country are laughing out loud at this idiotic approach to dealing with people who believe that we should all either convert to their way of thinking or die. I think it is about time that we as a nation drop the "Rodney King" idea of; "Can't we all just get along"? and pick up the attitude of Michael Corleone in Godfather II when he was asked, "Do you want' to kill everybody"? His answer was, "No. Only my enemies". Now while I did not agree with President George W. Bush on many things, the people who want to destroy our country knew better than to try a bunch of foolish crap. At least they did after 9/11.

So to those liberals/Socialists who want to turn complete and total control of their lives to an incompetent individual who has never really held a real job and who has less experience in private industry than I have, feel free to do so. But don't count on me or those remotely like me to sit still and eat that swill. You are able to consume your portion as well as ours.

You see, unlike the news bozos who tell us that, "We all remember what we were doing when we got the news of Princess Diana's death." Actually I do not remember what I was doing; nor where I was doing it; nor what day or hour it was; nor anything else about that particular day or night or when ever in the hell it was.

BUT I do remember exactly where I was on the morning of September 11, 2001. I was at the coffee shop at the Albertson's store in Hobbs, New Mexico. I was sitting around a table with; Jim Green, Robbie Robinson, Jay Hudson, Bob Littlefield, Bill Brown, Marshall Wynn, Carl Odom, Dick Falk, Jim Wheeler, and Rich Lomax. My neighbor, Paul Bliss, who lived at the opposite end of my street came in and told us that the twin towers at the World Trade Center in NY City as well as the Pentagon had been hit by three airliners who crashed into them within minutes of each other. I will probably never forget that morning. So you see, my priorities are perhaps a bit different from those who apparently more concerned with the death of "Princess Di" than they are about the lives of over 2,000 Americans at the hand of TERRORISTS. Yeah, that's right TERRORISTS.

MISCELLANEOUS:

I heard a news report earlier this week which said that some of the Guantanamo prisoners may be released in the United States AND receive federal financial assistance. Why would the be released in the U.S. was the question asked most frequently and the answer was that no other country would take them. OK. I have an idea. Since most of them are from the Mid-East, take them out about half way between Kobuk and Point Barrow, Alaska and kick their butts out. Try to do it in, shall we say about mid-November. You wouldn't have to worry about food as there would be plenty of wolves and bears on which they could dine.

KEYNES AT HARVARD: Published 1960

"Left-wingers quickly saw the Socialist intent behind the confusing maze of Keynes' system. They realize that the entire Keynesian apparatus is based upon the principal of control and regulation by government ............ According to Strachey, the positive part of Keynes' work was a demand that capitalism should now be regulated and controlled by a central authority. One of the central themes in Keynes' system is a condemnation of the principle of savings. The great virtue is consumption, extravagance, and improvidence. The great vice is saving, thrift, and financial prudence. They used the French term rentier as a smear word. The rentier is the terrible fellow who saves a little money and puts it in a savings bank................. If we make men 'free' they become creative (questioning), and if they become creative they create trouble, and also, in many cases growth......... Freedom must be curbed in order to have socialism.......... Any socialistic order requires that men who do things both technologically and socially must be forced into line OR quietly eliminated. According to Professor Wright, this question has been carefully kept out of print in agitational and propaganda literature not only to fool the public but also to mislead the rank and file radical membership."

Let's see now: Control and Regulation by Government; Capitalism should be regulated and controlled by a central authority; The great vice is SAVING, THRIFT, AND FINANCIAL PRUDENCE (does purchasing homes you cannot afford and borrowing money which you cannot repay sort of fit into this?); Men who do things both technologically and socially must be FORCED INTO LINE OR QUIETLY ELIMINATED.

Does this begin to look a bit familiar? But Jim, it sounds like you are calling the President of the United States a Socialist. Sure does, doesn't it. Or perhaps to be a bit more politically correct, since that seems to be important to some, perhaps he should be called a Pro-anticapitalism Stateist. Yeah, that should do it. All I know for sure is that whatever he and the mindless rodents who are following him are trying to sell us is an enormous load of equine offal. ( For those of you laboring in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Austin, that would be horse crap).

Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So as thou sleep, poverty creeps upon thee like a robber and destroys thee; want attacks thee in full armor." ................... PROVERBS 6: 6-11**

**I heard this passage quoted and read it and thought that it really applied to our society today. We have been asleep when we should have been taking care of our society with as much vigor as the common ant exhibits in his/her everyday life. We have all heard the story of the grasshopper and the ant and I believe that it is time to take a lesson from the common ant or we shall see poverty creeping upon us like a robber.

"Someone once said that, for every rookie you have on your starting team in the National Football League, you will lose a game. Somewhere, at some time during the season, a rookie will make a mistake that will cost you a game...... We now have a rookie President of the United States and, in the dangerous world we live in, with terrorist nations going nuclear, just one rookie mistake can bring disaster down on this generation and generations yet to come."................ THOMAS SOWELL

"What is even worse than making mistakes is having sycophants telling you that you are doing fine when you are not. In addition to all the usual hangers-on and supplicants for government favors that every President has, Barack Obama has a media that will se no evil, hear no evil and certainly speak no evil." ........ THOMAS SOWELL

This week, one of the people on our prayer list passed away. His name was also James Murphy and he lived in Hobbs, New Mexico. He died just two days after his ninety second birthday. When we were coming through Hobbs last September we stopped at some friends' house and as we were pulling away, we saw James in his front yard, mowing his lawn at age 91. We stopped and visited with him. He was a really fine man and will be missed.

Also this week, former NFL coach Lou Saban passed away at age 87. I had watched a program about his life and coaching career a couple of months back and again yesterday. He was an interesting man and after he left the NFL he stayed in coaching and coached a high school team and a small college team. He was a tough old school coach but apparently he was well respected by his players and his community. I always thought he was a pretty neat guy and he won a couple of AFL Championships.

Speaking of the NFL I was elated to see that former NFL Quarterback Michael Vick had finally settled his salary return dispute with the Atlanta Falcons. After I read that article I started to think about all of the criminal behavior being exhibited by professional athletes and thought about how fortunate I was to have been raised during a time when professional athletes and movie personalities actually cared about the perception of the general public toward them and their peers. All I can say is that times were much better when we did not have 24 hour coverage of every single move all of these people made. Most of the time when one of the athletes did something stupid they were punished and fined and shunned by the public. Now it seems as if the more absurd your behavior is, the more the media covers you. I have an excellent idea how as the viewing public and the sports observer can make this problem go away.

It would be pretty simple. Stay away from the stadiums in huge numbers. No ticket sales means no concession stand sales and no parking fees at the live events. Turn off the television and watch none of them on TV.. Notify the sponsors that you will not purchase their products as long as they are sponsoring the programs. Stay away from theaters. Stop purchasing the videos and DVD's. In all honesty I can tell you that life without professional sports is not all that bad. I got pissed at professional baseball when they had their second strike and I quit watching them on TV. The only major league games I actually watched after that was if Nolan Ryan was pitching or if someone I had actually known prior to their major league career was playing.

I stopped watching professional basketball a number of years back when they did something incredibly stupid. I do not get nearly the enjoyment out of professional football since the focus seems to be on the asinine behavior of T.O. and Ocho Cinco and some other equally idiotic acting young men. I can assure you that if given the choice between the Super Bowl and the Texas Six Man Championship games I will choose Texas Six Man every time.

The College World Series is way more enjoyable than watching a bunch of million dollar crybabies out there giving it their steroid enhanced all for George Steinbrenner or some other self centered owner. NFL Owners are rapidly wearing pretty thin with me also. I would hate to see a world where the owners of private companies were as blatantly obnoxious as Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

But I don't guess we will have to worry much about that. Within 8 years if this Chicago Mob Mentality political machine is not defeated by us at the polls, we can look forward to the Senate running the National Conference and the House of Representatives running the American Conference.

I guess that's about all I have to gripe about today. But never fear, I will be alert for more absurd behavior.


See ya'

March 25th, 2009 TOXIC/PARTNERS/EVASIVE

Wednesday - March 25, 2009

Greetings once again from an Unwilling Gun Clinging Jingoistic Obama Administration Partner.

I have been searching around for some magazine which does NOT feature a photograph of Barack Hussein Obama and have found that Guns and Ammo, American Rifleman, American Hunter and the Cabela's Catalogue are the only four which fit into this category.

PARTNERS - TOXIC:

This week I have listened to and watched Barack Hussein Obama who has apparently appeared on every television show except re-runs of the Andy Griffith Show. His main message apparently is telling us that we are all now "Partners" with the U.S. Government in taking over various lending institutions and that this partnership is going to "Buy Up" TOXIC ASSETS. Of course what he is referring to when using the term "Toxic Assets" are the bad real estate loans which many of these lending institutions were forced to make to unqualified borrowers by, guess who? Yep, that's right, their new "Partner" the Federal Government. Buying up "Toxic Assets" is not among my favorite passtimes.

I watched several reports which told us that the American People are now 85% owners of AIG. Now if that figure is true then I would like to make this request, please purchase whatever share of AIG that I own from me as soon as possible. I am ready to get out of the lending business.

Either that or let's do like the TV commercials suggest, let's put Delivery People and Firemen in charge of the company. Also let's put some Policemen and former High School Football Coaches in charge of our education system from start to finish. I can guarantee you that some former Military Man/Woman could do a more competent job of running the Department of Homeland Security a hell of a lot better than can Janet Napolitano. Also let's get a Retired F.B.I. or I.N.S. Agent to be our Attorney General. I am also convinced that the average housewife can manage money much better than our Treasury Secretary. As a matter of fact, I can't think of many jobs which couldn't be done better by almost any working man/woman than these elected Mutts.

EVASIVE:

Earlier in the week I watched a Republican Senator being interviewed. The interviewer asked this Republican Senator, "Do you think that the Treasury Secretary (for those of you in the Western Gulag of San Francisco that would be Timothy Geithner) was telling the truth? Now this is a yes or no answer. I could have even accepted the answer of 'I don't know. But what was this gutless Senator's reply? "That's a very good question and there are some other serious questions which must be asked." What a dodge.

Many years ago when I attended my very first school dealing with the interviewing and interrogation of suspects I was taught this: Whenever someone answers a direct question with another question, OR tells you that you had asked a very good question that almost 100% of the time their answer was going to be either an outright lie or would be a stall trying to think of something to say which would dodge the question. I have been taught that in almost every class of that nature the exact same thing.

Of course most of the Republican Senators are also part of the exclusive club which is in existence only to protect the jobs of Congressmen and Senators. Kick 'em all out and start over. I am reminded of a program which I viewed a couple of times over the past 5 or so years dealing with the Spartan society.

The Spartans were probably some of the most war-like people ever on the planet. All males served in the military. Some after military service were elected to political positions to run their civilian government. Now here is where it gets good. After you served your term as a politician and you left office, you were immediately put on trial and it was then decided what kind of job you had done during your term of service. If you had done good, you were acquitted and allowed to go your way. If, on the other hand, you had not done a satisfactory job, your punishment fit your performance. Now that is a custom which I wouldn't mind borrowing from the Spartans.

UNBELIEVABLE:

Now I am sure that you are all aware of the problems in arithmetic which have plagued our Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, and I am sure that you are aware that many are calling for his resignation, including some Democrats. But of course, the world's most articulate and intelligent human, Barack Hussein Obama, has publicly stated that he would not accept Geithner's resignation should he submit it.

So with that being said, I was amazed at Secretary Geithner appearing before a Congressional Committee and actually proposing that his office should be granted broader powers which would enable he and his cronies and the Chicago "Mob Mentality" Obama Administration to be in a position to have even more control over privately owned businesses. The way I heard it explained was that he was requesting "Resolution Powers" for his office which would enable he and his henchmen to merely pass a resolution dictating some idiotic rules which must be followed or face serious consequences.

Once again, I was not a big fan of the bonuses paid to executives with AIG but I also recognize that according to the way the legislation was written, the bonuses were permitted by law. Of course the man who was largely responsible for this language, Senator Chris Dodd, waffled like the gutless mutt that he is and on whom did he try to place the blame? Timothy Geithner and the Treasury Department, the same bunch of bozos who want even more power.

I do have this one question: How can any department in the federal government force a United States Senator to do something to which he/she is opposed? Answer: THEY CAN'T.

Ah, but after this request was made, Nina somebody or other and Juan Williams on FOX News both thought it was an excellent idea. Then I knew for sure it was a load of crap. How can you know that, residents in the People's Republic of Massachusetts ask? Easy, both Nina and Juan Williams are Democrat Hacks. You see, FOX News keeps trying to even out their contributors between conservatives and liberals so we are also subjected to liberal lunacy on occasion. In all fairness though, I must says that on occasion, Juan Williams will say something with which I agree. Not very often though.

MISCELLANEOUS:

I am sure that most of us watched the film clip of Ol' "Bug Eye" Nancy Pelosi do her act in some church in San Francisco. She was kissing up to the illegal alien crowd. She was telling her audience, which contained some legal immigrants as well as illegal aliens that they were all "Patriots" and that "We need to stop breaking in doors at 2 o'clock in the morning. I don't guess Nancy knew that evidently someone was filming her do her little act. This woman is a disgrace. Seems as if California has more than its share of elected idiots.

On March 25, 1634, about two hundred English settlers climbed off of two small ships, the Ark and the Dove which were anchored in the Potomac River. They rowed ashore to a slice of land which they name St. Clement's Island. They erected a cross, and held a thanksgiving service. These settlers were Catholic and Protestant alike. It was the beginning of the colony of Maryland. Good thing they aren't around today to see what has happened.

On March 25, 1865, Robert E. Lee ordered his last attack of the Civil War against Fort Steadman, near Petersburg, VIrginia. On this same date in 1965. civil rights activists ended their march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama at the steps of the state capitol.

MORE STUFF:

A little earlier today I was listening to reports of some of Barack Hussein Obama's new tax law proposals One of them had to do with cutting down on the amount of charitable contributions which would be eligible to be written off as an income tax deduction. It struck me almost immediately what was behind this game.

Most of the contributions, particularly large contributions, made to charities are made by people in the middle to upper income brackets. Now I don't know for sure how this new tax deduction will read but I do know the idea behind it. If the deduction has a ceiling put on it, many contributors will cut off their charitable donations at that point. This will have an immediate effect on the charitable entities and their staff and services will have to be cut. OH! But wait a minute I know where we can make up the difference. The good old Obama Socialist Government will give us the money. So in reality all Obama and his "Mob Mentality" cronies are up to is getting more people DEPENDENT on the Federal Government. They are trying to create as many welfare recipients as they can.

Obama gave everybody the little double shuffle about not raising taxes. OK. Let's look at this for a minute. Say you are making over $200 thousand per year. I am not sure exactly what the tax rate is or when it jumps from 15% to 25% or whatever the next step is. But if they take away $10,000 in donations or a combination of donations and interest and say you are in the 25% bracket, then you will be responsible for paying an additional $2,500 in taxes. I'm sorry but that is a tax increase any way you look at it. Now I must admit that if you are in the 25% bracket and you are making a donation to save the taxes you are spending a dollar to save twenty five cent. But the whole point of his program is to force more people/charities to be dependent on the Federal Government.

I must say at this point that lemmings, aimlessly running off the cliff to a certain death, show more intelligence than did many of the American voters last November. I heard someone say this morning that in reality, our country would be better off had Hillary Clinton been elected. I thought about that and decided that they were probably correct. I think she is a hell of a lot tougher than this con man, and it might have been sort of interesting every day to have been subjected to a high pitched laugh, followed by: "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too."***

March 18th, 2009 DUMB/DUMBER/DUMBEST

Wednesday - March 18, 2009

Greetings from the Central Time Zone Association Of Jingoistic Gun Clinging Smear Merchants.

Once again the President, his staff and Congress have pretty well outdone themselves this week on the stupidity scale.

DUMB:

Let me just start out with some dumb stuff I have picked up this past week.

The President of the United States is advocating pouring $530 Million Dollars into the Detroit School System. I heard several figures regarding the graduation rate of Detroit public school students and it was somewhere in the mid 30% range. So then doing a little simple math, that would mean that approximately 65% of the Detroit students do not graduate. Of course I am sure this is the fault of the Republican party. Or could it be that the Detroit Public School System is operated by buffoons? Whatever the reason, throwing $530,000,000 at it will not solve the problem.

Also I must place President Obama's Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs in the classification of incompetent/dumb/inept or any number of other adjectives which would describe his pitiful performance at his job. I didn't believe that a Presidential Press Secretary could be found who was worse than Scott McLellan, but I was obviously wr - - -; mista - - -; in err - -; misinf - - - a trifle confused on that subject. I watched a few minutes of several of his press conferences and have yet to see him presented with a tough question. The conferences are so dull that even that old sow Helen Thomas appeared to be nodding off on a couple of occasions. If ugly were people, Helen would be China.

I believe it was yesterday when he was asked a question about some bail out or another and I believe it had to do with who had the oversight and of course Gibbs didn't have a clue BUT his answer was DUMB. He told the reporter that he didn't know but by the time the reporter put it out over the air, he would have an answer. OK. From this I learned that Gibbs is clueless regarding many things. First of all, HE WAS ON TV which meant that HE WAS ALREADY GOING OUT OVER THE AIR. Now with electricity traveling at the SPEED OF LIGHT, according to several checked sources, that would mean that the electronic message was traveling at approximately 186,292.03 MILES PER SECOND. I don't much believe that Mr. Gibbs was going to come up with an answer at quite that speed.

Now this leads me to ask this question. If Robert Gibbs is incompetent/inept/uninformed/dumb, then what does that say about the person who appointed him to his present job?

DUMBER:

What is DUMBER than the Presidential Press Secretary, you ask? Well several things but what leaps to the front of the pack in my mind is the somewhere between $150 Billion and $170 Billion dollars poured into the bailout of AIG with little or no oversight. Then of course AIG used $165 Million of this money to pay bonuses to some of their top executives. Now, while I do not agree with paying these people the bonuses, I believe that their acceptance of the money showed damn little character. But in reality, the money was paid to these people to honor a contract with them which was in effect at the time the bailout funds were turned over to AIG.

You keep hearing about a section in this bill which prohibits this type of pay out but in reality all this concerned was pay out contracts addressed AFTER February 11th, 2009. The contracts authorizing the bonuses to be paid to the corporate executives were made well prior to that date. Again, I do not agree with them accepting the huge bonuses but they did nothing against the law. AND keep in mind this information was known by members of Congress at the time of the bailout. Oh, but I must have forgotten. One would have to have read the legislation to know this, wouldn't they.

But don't worry. Chuck Schumer and his fellow Congressional Clowns are not going to sit still for this. Chuckie himself said that "We will take this money back through taxes." He even made the statement that these executives would be taxed at a 100% tax rate in order to "Get the money back to the people."

DUMBEST:

Only one little problem with your promise, Chuckie. And perhaps you should get a copy of the Constitution of the United States and peruse that for a few moments. When you get to:

Article I; Section 9; Paragraph 3 - you will notice that our framers of the Constitution must have been psychic and realized that at some point in the first decade of the 21st Century that our House of Representatives AND our United States Senate would be controlled by idiotic clowns. This article, paragraph and section read as follows:

"No Bill of Attainder or ex-post facto Law shall be passed." Now Chuckie, you must remember that when the Constitution or any other legal document uses the word "WILL or SHALL" then that means it is NOT OPTIONAL. I would almost imagine that damn near every first year law student knows that you cannot pass a law which punishes people who have done something unseemly PRIOR to the passage of that law.

Of course maybe I am being a bit too critical of our lawmakers. I mean, after all that is almost like expecting our LAWMAKERS to be familiar with THE LAW and THE CONSTITUTION and also I guess we can't expect them to do something so unusual as OBEY THE LAW.

I saw an Associated Press article earlier this week which stated that one of our State of Texas lawmakers filed a bill that would create a "Pilot Program" designed to pay cash to students at "Low-Performing Schools" for good grades in core subjects. Freshman could earn $50 for each "A", $35 for each "B", and $20 for each "C" in English, math, science, or social studies. They would get half their money at the end of each grading period and the other half at graduation. They would also receive college and career counseling through this program.

How would this be paid for, you ask? Well that's easy, the funding for this extra idiotic legislation would come from $6 BILLION if Federal Stimulus money the state is planning on using for education. Hey! Perhaps this doof Representative from Beaumont might need to move to Detroit and give them a hand. The office of this Representative said this "Pilot Program" doesn't have an estimated cost yet.

Hey, I have an idea, if the cost is less than estimated they could always give the excess money to AIG Executives. Boy, the State of Texas must be really loaded with stupid politicians in order to try this "Pilot Program". Keep this in mind; it is only a "Pilot Program" in the State of Texas. Residents of the states of: Illinois; Maryland; New York; Arizona; and Washington, D.C. already have similar programs in place. Makes you feel warm all over doesn't it?

The article went on to say that there is no strong research to show that these types of incentives work BUT some research shows that such incentives can lead students to UNDER PERFORM.

Boy that sounds like perhaps our Treasury Secretary or our Homeland Security Secretary or our Presidential Press Secretary might have a hand in this.

Also, I don't ever want to hear any of you use the derogatory term "Enemy Combatant" ever again. The world's most articulate and intelligent human has banned these terms. And not to be outdone, I heard over some radio program that Ms. Napolitano is not happy with the term "Terrorist". Hey Janet!!! Tough!!

I also read that the recent problems in Northern Ireland were caused by the "Radical Wing" of the IRA. I've got some news for everyone. The regular wing of the IRA is crazy enough, we don't need a "Radical Wing".

MISCELLANEOUS:

I read an article in last Sunday's edition of the San Angelo (Sub) Standard times. It was entitled: Congress Huddles On Football.

Now I, along with many others would like to see the NCAA have a playoff system in Division I A Football. They have one in basketball and in Division II Football. I am pretty sure they have some type of system for all of their other team sports.

BUT, I do not want our Congress involved in any way in figuring out a playoff system. First of all, they have NO BUSINESS messing around with the subject. Second: If they do get involved, they will screw it up worse than it ever has been. How could we expect a group of clowns who can't even pass needed legislation to do something correctly with ANY SUBJECT. They have made a complete mess out of the steroid issue, which they shouldn't have been involved in to begin with. STAY OUT OF IT!

Now as you may have gathered, I was not pleased at all with the AIG Executives receiving millions in bonuses. But what pleases me even less is our Congress getting involved in salaries of executives, mid-management, or workers in the private sector. Yeah, yeah, I know, since AIG and other private companies have accepted federal funds, this in fact makes many private companies government owned. It that is the case, then fire the executives and hire some new ones who won't screw things up. Oh, but that would mean that Congress wouldn't screw stuff up worse than before................ Never mind.

KEYNES AT HARVARD - Published 1960

"Twisting of statistics as a propaganda weapon rather than relying on scientific objectivity, was a common practice of Keynes and his Socialist cohorts." Henry Hazlitt pinpoints Keynes' basic motives in the General Theory when he writes:

"Like Marxism, this is a class theory of the business cycle, a class theory of unemployment. As in Marxism, the capitalists become the scapegoats, with the sole differences that the chief villains are the money-lenders rather than the employers"

"Left wingers quickly saw the Socialist intent behind the confusing maze of Keynes' system. They realize that the entire Keynesian apparatus is based upon the principle of control and regulation by government. ........... One of the central themes in Keynes' system is a condemnation of the principle of savings." ........ The great virtues are consumption, extravagance, improvidence. The great vices are saving, thrift, and financial prudence."

Americans, just look at what our Federal Government is attempting to do to our country right now. Control and Regulation are at the forefront of almost every move these Socialists make. I can guarantee you all that those in power at the present time will expect us to do just like the people of Australia when their government confiscated ALL of the privately owned firearms. That is just a start.

"The Democratic leadership would chart the most dangerous course for a nation since the Egyptians tried to make a short cut through the Red Sea."..... RONALD REAGAN

On this day in 1818, Congress approves pensions for the Revolutionary War Veterans ($20 per month for officers, $8 per month for soldiers.)

Speaking of our Military Veterans, I saw several reports where the present President, Barack Hussein Obama, was going to submit a proposal which would force private insurance companies to pay for treatment of Military Veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan which would require private insurance companies to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs in such cases.

I don't know for sure but I just imagine that each of you feels just about the same as I do on this matter. This President has as little regard for our U.S. Military, past and present as I do for a colony of fire ants. This man is an embarrassment to our country. I'm sure that he is well received in Europe and the Muslim world but if he continues on his present course he will destroy the country we all love.

God bless and see ya' next week.

February 18, 2009 STIMULUS/STUFF

WEDNESDAY - February 18, 2009

Hello once again from the West Texas Headquarters Of The Culture Of Corrupt Jingoist Smear Machines.

STIMULUS:

Let me get this out of the way first; NO I HAVE NOT READ THE STIMULUS BILL. So that makes me at least even with the majority of the House of Representatives and the United States Senate. None of them have read this idiotic piece of legislation either. Oh, some of them probably read small parts but I'll wager that the only parts they read were those which dealt with their own particular district or state.

According to some of the information which I read, California was first with funding for 1971 projects; Florida was second with funding for 1752 projects; and Texas was third with funding for 1240 projects. Now since I live in Texas I believe I have a right to sound off on the $10.7 BILLION Taxpayer Dollars earmarked for my state.

Leading the State of Texas in hog meat is the City of Dallas with nearly $1.3 BILLION; Followed by San Antonio with $1.07 BILLION; Followed by Austin with $1.03 BILLION and Houston with a paltry $588 MILLION in swine handouts. Now I am not going to bore you with everything on which these funds are being spent but San Antonio has $10 MILLION earmarked for upgrading the Alamo Dome. Now I am sure that the Alamo Dome probably could use some sprucing up but this is a stadium owned, I believe, by either The City of San Antonio or Bexar, County. So why should taxpayer money from other parts of the state and nation be used to improve something which is owned by the government in that area? Actually that doesn't gripe me as much as the $18 MILLION earmarked in Austin for a boardwalk around "Lady Bird" Lake. But I imagine that quite a bit of this so called "Stimulus Package" in every state is going to be blown on similar projects.

But before I leave this subject, I really must mention some funding earmarked for the state of California. I read in a couple of places where this idiotic piece of legislation also earmarks some $30 MILLION for wetlands conservation in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco Bay area district. Part of this will be earmarked for a project designed to protect the "Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse". Now I thought this type of money being spent to make sure that a particular type of rodent feels at home was absurd. But then I began to really think about this and am just about to change my mind, and here's why:

Just imagine the natural habitat of the "Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse" being unable to support the little beasts, what would happen?

For starters they would more than likely move out of their rural settings and invade California cities in numbers too great to imagine. OK now you are going to have to stay with me on this. Just suppose that several of these creatures came in contact with Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Diane Feinstein, Henry Waxman, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsome, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The marsh mice would be stricken immediately with an incurable disease known as; Stupido Politicianus. Now this disease has no known cure and can be contracted by just being in the same area as one of the above named carriers. It is highly contagious and anything coming in contact with one of the marsh mice would also contract the disease. I'm sure that you can see that from the original contaminated marsh mice how the disease could spread to other marsh mice and in turn could spread to birds, cats and other predators. So perhaps spending $30 MILLION taxpayer dollars to keep these little buggers where they belong might not be all that bad. Of course some of the mice could come in contact with Barbara Streisand or Jane Fonda or perhaps Whoopi Goldberg and be stricken with Entertainus Idioticus. This also has no known cure. I feel sure that PETA is most supportive of this earmark as is The Sierra Club.

But seriously, the American public has been lied to by BOTH Houses of Congress as well as the world's most articulate and intelligent human. President Obama felt it necessary to fly to Colorado to sign this piece-o-crap bill. According to the news he did this to show his support for "Green Legislation" which evidently is liberally sprinkled throughout this bill.

Like for instance, they never told the American public that giving these tax dollars to the states to dispense to the various cities and statewide projects is normally sliced up with a percentage of the total amount received by each particular government entity going toward "Administrative Fees". I can recall working on federal grants to law enforcement in which the whole amount designated for a particular state had a percentage taken by the state for "Administrative Fees". Then when the funds hit each city or county, that city/county could also take a percentage off the top for their own "Administrative Fees". I must say that the City for whom I was employed DID NOT take their "Administrative Fees" with the entire amount going for the equipment or salaries for which it was intended. Not all cities did that but ours did.

I keep hearing all of these so called economic experts attempting to put us all on a guilt trip like it is somehow our fault that certain members of our population applied for and received a loan which both the lender and the borrower knew at the time the loan was made, was completely un affordable to the borrower. It doesn't take a genius or a master's degree to figure out that someone making $35 to a$40,000 per year cannot afford the monthly payments on a $175 - $200,000.00 home. But since our government has made it their business to involve themselves at every level of our lives, and it was their wish that EVERYONE was entitled to own "Affordable Housing".

Now our government is wanting to control the housing market just like they want to control the lending institutions and the automobile industry. So I have this question for our federal government. Since the government feels it incumbent on them to give all sorts of perks to people who made bad loans and cannot afford what they purchase, what are they going to do for the majority of Americans who lived within a budget and saved money and did without certain things to be able to purchase and pay off their loans on or before the deadline? I hear stories every day of families who did without new automobiles, cell phones for their children, credit cards for their children, iPods, satellite television and any number of other things so that they could, dare I say it, SAVE MONEY and pay cash for what they needed or wanted.

Believe me when I tell you that the Socialists who now are in the majority in our federal government hate those of us who perhaps actually did save money. That makes some of us a little less dependent upon the federal government. The Socialists want us all to be dependent upon them for everything we need. Of course they don't want that for themselves, just you and I.

OTHER STUFF:

Sometime last week, I believe it was, Bill O'Reilly made a comment about White House Correspondent, Helen Thomas, bearing a striking resemblance to "The Wicked Witch of the West" in The Wizard Of Oz. The role, incidentally was played by Margaret Hamilton. Now while I do agree with Mr. O'Reilly on a number of things, I had to take issue with him on this. So I tried to find video of Helen Thomas and in the few clips I was able to pull up I was unable to get a good look at her as there was always a troop of flying monkeys swirling around her head. However in every single clip Helen could be heard to say, "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too." So I guess I will have to give in to Mr. O'Reilly and take the position that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Anyway, to me she always sort of reminded me of Jabba The Hutt from Star Wars.

OK. You want to talk about government intrusion into your life? Then try this on for size. And of course it could come from no place other than the "Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts". This was from Scripps wire service: "A tentative plan to overhaul a Massachusetts transportation system by using GPS (for those of you residing in The People's Republic of San Francisco, that would be a Global Positioning Satellite) chips to charge motorists a one quarter cent for every mile behind the wheel may have angered some drivers."

" It's outrageous, it's kind of Orwellian, Big Brotherish, said Sen. Scott Brown, (R-Wrentham) who drafted legislation last week to prohibit the practice."


"But a 'Vehicle Miles Travelled' program like the one the Massachusetts Governor may unveil this week has already been tested --------- with positive results------- IN OREGON."

"Governors in Idaho and Rhode Island as well as the federal government, also are talking about similar programs."

All I can say is "Beam me up Mr. Spock, these clowns are out of their minds". You see, a real clue in this is that "It worked----in Oregon". The defense rests.

Earlier this week I went to one of our local Wal-Mart stores to purchase some .22 caliber ammunition for my two youngest grandsons. Now keep in mind, this was .22 rim fire ammunition. One of the stores had one box left and when I went to pay, the clerk asked me if the ammunition was for a rifle or a pistol. Now the ammunition was for the .22 rifles used by my two grandsons so I told him for a rifle. He punched some key on the cash register and I suppose it registered the kind of weapon for which the ammo was purchased. I went to the other Wal-Mar store and purchased another box of .22 rim fire ammunition and once again was asked if the ammo was for a rifle or a pistol so I again answered for a rifle. I am still not sure why this question was asked and if this policy just started but I strongly imagine that the owners of the Wal-Mart chain themselves could care less about what type of weapon the ammo would be used in. Strange, then again maybe not so strange. I think the next time I will tell them that it is for a handgun and see what happens.

Last week I was driving back to my house. Just behind our house runs an arroyo which actually goes several miles to the North before emptying I believe into the Concho River. The South end of this arroyo starts several hundred yards at the city limits and actually starts at the property line of a ranch. Lots of deer and other wildlife live on that ranch among which are some feral cats. These cats are plenty wild and on occasion in the early mornings I can catch deer feeding in the arroyo along with a number of feral cats heading back toward the ranch.

On this particular morning I saw a huge orange colored tom cat (For those in the Peoples Gulag of Austin, that would be a male cat) crossing the street heading for the arroyo and headed for the ranch. I had never seen this particular cat before and was absolutely amazed at his size. When he walked, he reminded me of one of those huge male lions in some of the African movies. He walked very slowly and deliberate and was really showing the world that he was in charge. I stopped and let him cross in front of me and he stopped in the middle of the street and gave me a glare. I noticed then that he had a tail which had been cut off about midway. His left ear was chewed off and just barely stuck out from his head. This ol' boy had seen some battles and he gave me a look that said "OK, I've let you and that green monster go this morning but you better be damn careful anytime you see me." After staring at me for about 15 seconds he slowly turned and headed for the arroyo and the ranch. What a great animal. This old orange tom cat had more character than our entire House and Senate. Of course a group of lemmings headed for the cliff has more character than do those mutts.

Now for something completely different. This past week was of course St. Valentine's Day on February 14th. February 15th was our 51st Wedding Anniversary. February 20th is my wife's Birthday. So I have been pretty fortunate to have all of these important days occur within a week. Sure makes it easy for me.

Oh, before I forget, this past week we were subjected to two different FOX News shows on which Whoopi Goldberg was being interviewed. One was the O'Reilly Factor and this was a two part interview and we were subjected to Whoopi two nights in a row. But the big hoopla was on the Sean Hannity Show. All week he advertised that he was going to go 'Head to Head' with Whoopi Goldberg. I did not watch any of these interviews in their entirety but saw enough to reinforce my opinion that Whoopi Goldberg is a pure mutt. Of course O'Reilly was much better than Hannity as it was obvious that O'Reilly was much more intelligent than was Whoopi. I'm not sure about Hannity though. But I still must ask this question, Why would anyone care about the opinion of a super ugly woman who was named after a cushion which made the noise of someone passing gas? It is beyond me.

Well I must be off for another week and since I am such a fan of PETA and the Sierra Club I believe I will start a "Save The Fire Ants" movement. After all, insects do have rights. Or so I'm told.

Later

February 12, 2009 AFFORDABLE/PORK/WARMING

Thursday - February 12, 2009

Greetings from the West Texas Headquarters for Jingoistic Smear Merchants From The Land Of The Tyranny Of Oil. At least this is pretty much how President Barack Hussein Obama views American citizens who are involved in any phase of the petroleum business. "The Tyranny Of Oil" was one of his descriptive statements in one of his town hall meetings.

TYRANNY OF OIL:

So we now are aware of his feelings toward an industry which actually does quite a bit more than manufacture fuel. Someone really needs to explain to the new President that petroleum is used in the manufacture of many other things. Medicines, plastics just to name a couple. Here are just a few of the over 6,000 products made from petroleum:

Solvents, Bearing grease, Ink, Floor wax, Insecticides, Perfumes, Shoe Polish, Tool boxes, Putty, Dyes, Panty hose, Epoxy, Paint, Clothing, Candles, Trash bags, Antifreeze, Awnings, Detergents, Artificial limbs, HEART VALVES, Pillows, Parachutes, Telephones, Artificial turf, Tents, Vitamins, Antihistamines, Petroleum jelly, Toothpaste............. and the list can go on to name over 6,000. One 42 gallon barrel of oil creates 19.4 gallons of gasoline. Now even those of you residing in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" should be able to tell that 19.4 is less than 50% of 42. So to put it so that even the residents of the "Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts" can figure out that less than half of petroleum goes into the manufacture of fuel.

But keep in mind, here is a President who, with a straight face, tells us that this idiotic piece of legislation which the liberals/socialists call a "Stimulus Package" contains NO PORK.

PORK:

OK. Contains no pork. Well here are just a few items which should do a damn good job of being used as an excellent "Pork Substitute":

$1.5 million to reduce prostitution in Dayton, Ohio.

$ 5 billion for political action groups which include ACORN

$ 1 billion for a frisbee golf course

$ 4.8 million for polar bear exhibit at the Providence, RI zoo

$650 million on top of the billions already laid out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons.

$1 billion for Amtrak

$34 million to remodel the Department of Commerce headquarters

........and the list goes on.

I heard on a couple of morning programs that the bill is now in excess of 1400 pages. Someone please convince me that these elected mutts have actually read any portion of the bill other than that which tosses pork in their direction.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING:

Earlier in the week I was reading an article on the editorial page of our local news paper The (Sub) Standard Times. The article was by Dr. Thomas Sowell and was entitled: Government Fueled Housing Crisis.

Here is a little portion of that article:

"When I first left home in 1948, I rented a room about 4 by 8 feet, costing $5.75 a week. Since my take home pay was $22.50, that was 'affordable housing'.""After three years of living in rented rooms, I began living in Marine Corps barracks, and sometimes tents --- none of which cost me anything. That was certainly affordable."

Dr. Sowell went on to tell of living in rented housing and apartments for the next six years. None of them were fancy but were affordable. He went on to tell of gradually upgrading his rental housing until about 1981 when he began to purchase his FIRST HOUSE. Let's see now, that would be some 33 years after first leaving home. He points out that most people, without government interference, will generally pay for housing that they can afford. He went on to say:

"What they are saying and doing usually boils down to trying to enable people to choose what housing they want first---- and then have some law or policy where somebody else, somewhere else, somehow or other make that housing 'affordable' for them."

Of course Dr. Sowell points out that this is a formula for disaster. Our federal government over the past couple of administrations have made it possible for people to go around buying whatever they wanted regardless of their financial means. These people are depending upon someone else to make up the difference.

Dr. Sowell said that he did basically what most of us did. We compared the cost of housing with our income at that particular time. THAT is affordable housing.

When you look back beginning with the Carter Administration, every President, Democrat/Socialist and Republican alike have slowly been chipping away at an individual's "Personal Responsibility" for setting up their own standards as to what they could afford.

GLOBAL WARMING:

I once again saw an editorial in our local newspaper written by Deroy Murdock. The editorial piece was titled: "Even Left Laughs at Global Warming". He had several sources whom he quoted. Here are a couple:

*Commentator Harold Ambler declared January 3rd on HuffingtonPost.com that he voted for Barack Obama. He further added that Al Gore "Owes the world an apology for his actions regarding global warming." He called Gore's assertion that 'the science is in' on this issue "the biggest whopper ever sold to the public in the history of mankind."

*"Not only is it false that human activity has any significant effect on global warming or the weather in general, but for the record, global warming is OVER", retired Navy meteorologist Martin Hertzberg wrote on carbon-sense.com. The physical chemist and self-described "Scientist and life-long liberal Democrat added: "The average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere has declined over the last 10 years. From the El Nino Year of 1998 until January, 2007 it dropped a quarter of a degree Celsius (0.45 degrees Fahrenheit). From January, 2007 to the spring of 2008, it dropped a whopping three quarters of a degree Celsius (1.35 degrees Fahrenheit). This data further proves that the fear-mongering hysteria about human caused global warming is completely unjustified.

BUT, in our new and improved Stimulus Package, we have $400 million dollars earmarked for the study of global warming. How absurd is that?

TRILLION COMPARISON:

I received an e-mail earlier in the week as a forward and I later e-mailed the author of these figures. The man who came up with them is a retired General. He stacked up a number of $100 bills and measured them with a machinist micrometer and then did the math from there. Here are his results:

If you could stack $100 bills this high, here would be the results ---- 1 billion hundred dollar bills would be almost exactly 1/2 mile high, which means that $1 Trillion dollars would extend 500 miles into space.

Anyway this is roughly what this stimulus package is going to cost the taxpayers of this country.

SOCIALISM - Keynes At Harvard - Published 1960

"In 1913, Keynes adopted the concept of eliminating gold as a standard of the monetary system of the nations of the world. His notion of a managed currency,(which he sold Franklin D. Roosevelt on twenty years later) was an old socialist catch call, espoused by Fabian Socialists since the turn of the century. It is a fundamental concept of State-Socialism."

"Keynes proceeded to expound, in clear-cut terms, that private enterprise, as a general rule, was historically finished and that socialized forms were a natural and progressive development of society."

"Keynes' attitude toward the free enterprise system was in all essentials the same as that of the Fabian Socialists. The Fabian Socialists project of allowing private enterprise to operate while gradually chipping away at its foundations until THE GOVERNMENT TAKES OVER ALL FUNCTIONS was identical with the Keynesian concept. Keynes advances the softening-up stage as a basis for future socialism."

"Keynes sneers at private enterprise as 'often a lottery' from which 'great inequalities of wealth come about'."

"Fabian Socialists have long considered those who saved and invested as a stumbling block against the march of Socialism. Keynes concept of controlling society extends beyond political and economic matters. He even advocates social control of the number of children per family."

Along these lines, does the $200 million dollar earmark to "Family Planning Services" in the new so called 'Stimulus Package' begin to fall into place?

These Fabian Socialist concepts brought to America in the late 1800's and written about in 1960 are ,as the Reverend Jeremiah Wright said, "Coming Home To Roost." I'm sure you all remember Reverend Wright who was the Obama's pastor for 20 years BUT NEVER said anything radical during that time period which was heard by either Barack or Michelle.

When I think of Jeremiah Wright and several others who were close to Barack and Michelle Obama, I can't help but think of a whole room full of mutts. Which brings us to:

VARMINTS:

"Fat Teddy"(Kennedy); "Fat Jack"(Murtha); Nancy Pelosi; Harry Reid; Barney Frank; Chuck Schumer; Barbara Boxer; Diane Feinstein; Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii); John Kerry; "Mr. Toad"(Al Franken); Al Gore; Jimmy Carter; and now for three so called Republicans who should be booted out of the Republican Party; ARLEN SPECTER (R?-PA); OLYMPIA SNOWE (R?-ME); SUSAN COLLINS (R?-ME) and anyone in the state of Maine who votes these two sows back into office.

PRAYER LIST:

Tony Knott, Ann Fraley, James & Pat Murphy, Tony Aguilar - HOBBS,NM; Ella Dunlop, Kitten Winthrope-SAN ANTONIO,TX; Susan O'Brien-VACAVILLE,CA; Arthur Baebel-HOUSTON,TX; Irma & L.T.

QUOTES:

"Conservatives don't need to reinvent themselves. They need the courage to be once again what they were."........................... RUSH LIMBAUGH

"Much of the social history of the Western World over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good.".......... THOMAS SOWELL

"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm - - but the harm does not interest them. Or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves" ..... T.S. ELLIOT

Just prior to shutting off our computer last Sunday evening, I sent out a notice to everyone that we would be out of town for several days. The only problem was, I thought the short message went out to everyone on my mailing list. I must have cut off my computer before the message was sent. So when we got back into San Angelo on Wednesday evening, I turned on our computer and saw that I was sending a message. Of course it was the message from Sunday evening so that is the reason that it was late reaching you all. And that was the reason that a whole bunch of stuff got kicked back as my box filled up pretty rapidly. I'll try to do better next time.

Anyway, we went to Victoria and visited some old friends from Houston. Two other families also came to Victoria and while the wives went on some type of shopping spree, us old school buddies played Boo-Ray until about midnight on Monday and started back up again shortly after breakfast on Tuesday and played until the afternoon. It reminded us all of our days together at Lamar High School in Houston and of some really good times. All in all, it was one of our most enjoyable trips. Old friends are hard to beat and they last forever. I consider myself a very fortunate person to have my family and my friends. I know that all of us who met in Victoria this week don't want to wait this long before getting together again. And the older we all get, the more we appreciate these gatherings.

Before I forget, I got an e-mail earlier today which gave a website where you can go and e-mail or fax your State Governor and your U.S. Senators and Congressman. Here it is:

I don't know about the rest of you but I believe I can keep this place busy. And we all need to. Don't be satisfied with just writing your own Senators and Reps. I believe I have a few things that I would like to pass on the the three Republican VARMINTS.

MISCELLANEOUS:

Reflecting back for a moment on the quote this week from T.S. Elliot. I have to disagree to the extent that I believe that some of these people actually do mean to do harm. Most of them however, I believe have been in the public light for so long and have had their backsides kissed for so long and have been given special recognition and special treatment for so long that the not only like it but have come to expect it. We need to boot their sorry butts back into private life and let them get a taste of that for awhile. We are looking at having a President who was obviously the media darling and a man for whom the media mutts were in the tank, with few exceptions.

I remember during the very first campaign run by George W. Bush against Al Gore. At one of those events, the microphone was left on and picked up Dick Cheney making this statement about a certain reporter: "He's a major ass hole". To which George Bush replied "Big time". From that moment on, most of the mainstream media was out to do everything within their power to do a character assassination on George Bush and Dick Cheney. This has lasted for eight years and it is STILL GOING ON. The media is prone to overlooking and covering for Barack Obama. So within the next four years the Republican Party had better get off their dead backsides and get back to the concepts which gave us a Republican President and Republican controlled Senate and House.

Anyway I guess I'd better get down the road. I have a PETA meeting to attend this evening. That is People Eating Tasty Animals.

February 5th, 2009 FOOTBALL/TRILLION/FLDS

Wednesday - February 4, 2009

A big West Texas welcome from the Central Time Zone Headquarters For Jingoistic Right Wing Smear Merchants.

SUPER BOWL:

Well I for one enjoyed the Super Bowl. It was a really interesting game and exciting all the way to the end. Both teams exhibited the traits which showed why they both deserved to be there. Actually, not really having a dog in the fight, I was able to watch the entire game without feeling any pressure. The final results pretty well proved the old saying: "Offense wins games, defense wins championships." Although both teams exhibited very good offenses, the Pittsburgh Steelers obviously had the tougher all around defense.

OK. You know what I enjoyed about the game, now for some of the things which I did NOT enjoy. And I am sure that you all already know that I did not enjoy the rendition of our National Anthem. Once again some singer felt it necessary to make the song more about her singing voice and range than she did about singing the song in a manner which honored our country and our men and women who have fought and died for our freedoms.

And I am sure that it will come as no surprise to you that I found the half-time entertainment seriously lacking. Of course this might be due to the fact that I find "The Boss", Bruce Springsteen to be a bit of an ass and while I did not intentionally watch the half-time show, I did switch back a few times to see if perhaps the network would be so crass as to interrupt "The Boss" with a commercial break. Of course they did not. And we did have a few moments where some of the NBC staff had to waste our time by telling us what we had just observed.

And why is the entire day prior to the actual game taken up by several channels giving us the Pre-Game Shows. Many had to endure about seven and one half hours of pre-game hoopla.

Now for the commercials. The Budweiser commercials with the Clydesdales were all very good. The Go-Daddy.Com commercials I found to be almost as entertaining as the National Anthem as sung by that Hudson broad. Not many of the commercials outside of the Clydesdales showed me much of anything. I am proud to say that I did not watch one single Post-Game show.

Another area which I believe the NFL and for that matter the NCAA needs to address are the obligatory divas on the sidelines conducting idiotic interviews. OK. Now here is the scene:

Arizona is on the Pittsburgh two yard line with about fifteen seconds left in the half. They are in a position to either go ahead or at least kick a field goal and be tied with Pittsburgh going in at half time. Arizona quarterback Curt Warner mis-reads the defense and throws a pass which was intercepted by Pittsburgh and returned one hundred yards for a touchdown giving Pittsburgh a ten point lead.

The teams leave the field and Andrea Kramer stops the Arizona coach and asks him what went wrong with the play which gave Pittsburgh an extended lead? You could tell by the look on that coach's face that he really didn't have time to dally around answering stupid questions and gave her a pretty short answer before going into the dressing room. Then prior to the second half, Andrea felt duty bound to tell the broadcast crew that the Arizona coach had been rather curt with her. Curt? This heifer obviously does not have a clue about what is and what isn't curt. My point is though, these sideline heifers need to be OFF THE FIELD and no one, male or female should be bothering those coaches or players either at the beginning or at the end of the half. It is stupid and adds nothing to the game. The NFL and the NCAA need to put a stop to it TODAY!

STIMULUS:

We have all been hearing and reading about the Stimulus Package which was passed by the House of Representatives. It is my understanding that this package pretty well had the approval of the world's most intelligent and articulate human. I believe the last figure I heard was that this package ended up with a total value of $819 Billion dollars. Let's look at just a few of the hand outs of our tax dollars:

$1 Billion for Amtrak, which has not earned a profit in four decades.

$2 Billion to help subsidize child care.

$650 Million for coupons to help consumers convert their TV sets from analog to digital.

$75 Million to fund programs to help people quit smoking*

* I smoked for a number of years. I stopped smoking several times and went right back. Then when I finally decided on my own that I wanted to stop smoking, I stopped without any federal funding. It is called will power and I'll be damned if I agree to funding programs to assist people do something which they can do on their own IF THEY REALLY WANT TO.

$21 Million to re-sod the National Mall, which suffered heavy use during the inauguration.

$20 Billion over five years for an expanded food stamp program.

These are just some of the earmarks in this horse crap bill.

The House version of this bill was passed, pretty much along party lines. Now the legislation goes to the Senate.

I just heard a few minutes ago that the Senate has put their clutches on the bill and it is NOW over $900 Billion dollars. Way to go Senate.

APPOINTMENTS:

It appears as if the world's most intelligent and articulate human has a bit of a problem in judging the character of some of his appointees. It seems as if three of them pulled out on their own prior to hearings. Own their own my backside. I am speaking of New Mexico Governor, Bill Richardson who pulled out several weeks back due to his being under investigation regarding some campaign contributors and state contracts.

Then within the past twenty four hours, former Senator Tom Daschle pulled out, allegedly own his own, from being considered for an appointment as Health and Human Services Director. Also within the past twenty four hours perspective appointee for the position of "Chief Performance Officer" has also withdrawn due to some type of payroll tax questions for two Nannies for her two teen age children. What does a Chief Performance Officer do, you ask?

I am not entirely sure but it sounds awfully like a Personnel Director or what a few years back was called a Personnel Director. I have watched the gradual power gained from when the person in charge of personnel with a government was called the Personnel Officer. Then that changed to Personnel Director. Then a few years passed and the title changed to "Director of Human Resources". Or as it is named in the comic strip "Dilbert" by Scott Adams, "Catbert, Evil Director of Human Resources". If you have ever worked for a government entity you would appreciate the subtleties of Mr. Adams regarding modern businesses. All of the characters are generally either the boss (not Springsteen), management or engineers who are all human. Then you have the consultant who is a dog (Dogbert) and the rat (Ratbert) on whom all the new stuff is tested but only Catbert has the title of Evil Director of Human Resources. Many of us who worked for the City of Hobbs during a certain time period know exactly what Adams means when he uses "Evil Director of Human Resources."

NEWS REPORTER:

Last week I was watching a piece on FOX News channel and observed an interview with White House News Correspondent, Helen Thomas. I know you have all seen this old squack at the White House Press Conferences. She is always on the front row. She is well on up in years and has a face which would stop your watch. Anyway, this interview was regarding liberal bias in the media. Now Helen said that she had been doing the news for something like 30 or 40 years and had NEVER seen any media bias toward the left. She admitted being a liberal herself but had never really seen any liberal bias by media personnel. Now this told me a couple of things about her. First, Helen has a face which would make a freight train take off on a dirt road. Second, she must have the IQ of mildew. The liberal media is in my opinion the main group who is responsible for the election of Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States. What do you suppose would be the position of the far left media should President George Bush have attempted to make an appointment of anyone with the obvious honesty problems of some of the Obama appointees? Believe me when I tell you that I had some major problems with a couple of Bush appointees.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS:

My wife was born in the small Central Texas town of Bremond. This small town has a weekly newspaper called the Bremond Press. We have taken it for years and you can read about all the local goings on as well as reports on their high school sports teams. We look forward to receiving the paper. During this past campaign season, it was also pretty obvious that the management of the paper were pretty well in the tank for Obama. For several weeks including the last week's edition contained a photo of someone wearing either an Obama T-Shirt or an Obama Cap. But what really got my attention in this edition was a photograph of a new city employee. This employee has a position which collects payments for various city services. BUT, the newspaper also felt duty bound to let the reading public know that his new city employee was the FIRST Native American to work for the city. Now this small town has a population of less than 900 people. So the fact that this new city employee was a Native American was probably not a pivotal moment in the lives of most of the other residents of that community. Anyway, I've got news for everyone. I am a native American. Let's look at this term:

native : - belonging to a locality or country by birth: being or connected with the place of one's birth: as found in nature: a person born in the place indicated: an original inhabitant; an indigenous plant or animal.

Native-American: - American Indian, now often the preferred term.

OK. Preferred By Whom????

In school when we studied a certain part of the history of this country I remember reading about "The French and Indian Wars". Not the French and Native-American Wars. And I believe that our own federal government still has an organization called the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

According to these definitions, if you were born here in the United States of America you are a native American. So according to the dictionary the term Native-American is just a politically correct term meant to pacify liberals/socialists.

Under any circumstances, pointing out this fact was completely unnecessary and pretty insulting to our intelligence when you really look at it.

FLDS:

Over the past year or so there has been an investigation and some grand jury indictments regarding some of the members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). If you remember correctly in about 2003 the national head of that organization was arrested and later tried and is serving time in the penitentiary as we speak. At the present time there is a hearing taking place here in San Angelo. The FLDS compound is located in El Dorado,Texas which is South of San Angelo. Last week the head of this compound and his son were both subpoenaed into court for this hearing. Now these next figures should perhaps give you a little insight into whether or not these two are involved in some illegal activities. On Thursday, January 29th, Merril Jessop invoked the 5th Amendment 267 times during his testimony. Then the next day, William R. "Willie" Jessop invoked the 5th Amendment 110 times during his testimony. Now for those of you who reside in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" perhaps you should consult a copy of the United States Constitution to find out what the Fifth Amendment is. That is if you can locate one in San Francisco.

TRILLION:

When they tell us that this Stimulus Package will end up costing over a Trillion Dollars, I sometimes wonder if people really have any idea about how much One Trillion Dollars is. Here is what it looks like written out: $1,000,000,000.000.00 That is one followed by TWELVE ZEROS. I was watching the Mike Huckabee Show last week end and Mr. Huckabee asked audience members this questions: How much of the Microsoft Company would $1 Trillion dollars buy. They answered that is was something like 10%. Same question regarding what percentage of GOOGLE would the trillion purchase and they came up with another small percentage. Same answers for Wal-Mart, Coca Cola Inc. and PepsiCo. Then Mike Huckabee gave them the correct answer. $1 Trillion Dollars could purchase: Microsoft, GOOGLE, Wal-Mart, Coca Cola Inc., and PepsiCo IN THEIR ENTIRETY and there would be $23 Billion dollars left over. So when these politicians start throwing around these billion and trillion dollar figures we need to be very suspicious and wonder if those idiots realize just exactly how much of our money they are willing to give away.

SOCIALISM:

I was listening to Mark Steyn who is from Great Britain and is rather familiar with their socialized health care system as well as the socialized health care systems predominant in Europe. He said that first of all they feed it to you in small increments and the more you get, the less your expectations become. He said that when you go to a hospital for emergency treatment and you are expecting a 48 hour wait and the waiting time is only 18 hours, you are satisfied and settle for less. When you look at it, this can be said about every aspect of socialism.

MISCELLANEOUS:

Here is a news item I heard on one of the morning newscasts. Tanzania has recently passed a law which prohibits the killing of albinos. It seems as if albino children are valued as a producer of body parts which are used by the witch doctors in some of their treatments. The report said that at the present time there were around 90 individuals who were awaiting trials for murdering albinos for body parts. This included members of their police force and military. Sure makes you feel like they have made great strides since their colonial days.

Wonder how the CEOs of some of the companies who have received government bail out money feel about the President of the United States telling them that they now have a salary cap? Now while I admit that I believe that the salaries and other compensation of many of these company executives is way out of proportion to everything else, the thought of our government having any say in these matters is steering us ever closer to pure socialism and nationalization of private industry. Thanks a bunch Uncle Nanny.

Within the past two days I have heard Texas Republican Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Maine Republican Senator, Olympia Snowe singing the praises of Tom Daschle. I even caught the tail end of Arizona Republican Senator, John McCain speaking about his friendship with Daschle. Does the term RINO ring a bell?

Which brings me to the next segment.

Several of us got word from Levi's Dad, Ben English, that his youngest son Ethan English, a senior at Ozona High School had also received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. I would like to add that these two young men are two of the nicest young gentlemen I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I am so proud of both of them for receiving the honor of being appointed to the Naval Academy. I can only imagine how proud his parents and family must be. Congratulations to the English family.

Well I guess I'd better be off and running. I have been attempting to find some variety/talk show somewhere on the planet which DOES NOT have Rod Blagojevich as a guest. This might be an impossible task as "Blago" is making every attempt to prove to America just what an honest person he really is. Let's see now. Ol' Blago appears to have all the humility of an NFL Wide Receiver and appears to be as truthful as a Kennedy. Other than that and the fact that he is a part of a totally corrupt Illinois political machine, I can find nothing wrong with him.

January 28th, 2009 PRIORITIES CONTROL RINO

Wednesday - January 28, 2009

Greetings once again from the West Texas Association For Jingoistic Gun Clingers With Mob Mentality.** (The Mob Mentality is evidently how conservatives are viewed by Tom Brokaw)

PRIORITIES:

Anyway, we are now in our eighth day of the ObamaLand tour. ObamaLand is almost identical to PelosiLand and ReidsVille. I could not help but notice that the new President of the United States must have a bit of a problem with his priorities. What makes me say this is that I could not help but take notice of the absence of the new President and the First Lady at one of the inaugural balls. That would be The Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball which was begun in 1953 for President Dwight Eisenhower's inauguration. The event recognized recipients of the Medal of Honor. There were 48 Medal of Honor recipients in attendance, who were undoubtedly disappointed by the Commander-In-Chief's failure to show. In the past 56 years and 14 inaugurations, no President has skipped this event - UNTIL NOW. This event is sponsored by the American Legion, and co-sponsored by 13 other veteran's service organizations, including the Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

So what did he attend instead, you ask? He chose rather to hang with Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Mary J. Blige, Faith Hill, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, will.i.am, Sting, Mariah Carey, and Leonardo DiCaprio. Also on his choice were balls which had in attendance, Kanye West, Kid Rock, Marc Anthony, and Cheryl Crow. In other words he chose to skip the event without all of the "Name Celebrities". Well I have a bit of news for the world's most intelligent and articulate human (The President). I think you have insulted all branches of our military, past and present, along with their families. I cannot understand anyone, let alone the President of the United States who would pass up an opportunity to meet these wonderful people who have given so much for our country.

GUN CONTROL:

We had all better be prepared for the Obama Administration to make a run at firearms control and individual licensing. Keep in mind that President Barack Hussein Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Attorney General Appointee Eric Holder, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have never met a piece of gun control legislation which they were not in love with. I am sure that almost all of you have received various e-mails regarding the Ammunition Accountability Act along with H.R. 45 which is being pushed by Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill), H,R. 45 contains provisions that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print AND MENTAL HEALTH RECORDS. Further this bill would order the Attorney General to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner's address in America. It would additionally require completion of a written firearm safety test and of course a fee. Further, the bill makes it illegal to transfer ownership of any qualifying firearm to ANYONE who is not a licensed gun dealer or collector.

Everyone needs to write, telephone, send smoke signals, drumbeats or any other means known,to their Senators and Congressman to urge them to NOT SUPPORT any legislation which by any stretch of the imagination could be viewed as firearms control legislation. I've already done mine.


MORE PRIORITIES:

Now as you already know, I have absolutely NO USE for the following news TV networks:

NBC

CNBC

MSNBC

CNN (I and II)

CBS

ABC

PBS

I can tolerate FOX News most of the time.

So which one of these networks did President Barack Hussein Obama choose for his FIRST TV Interview after being elected? GIve up? Well the correct answer is None Of The Above.

Nope,the new President of the United chose Al Arabiya News Channel. Al Arabiya, you ask? Why that sounds like some Middle Eastern controlled Muslim channel. Well you would be right on all counts. I guess when push comes to shove, Al Arabiya probably is more truthful than the above mentioned networks other than FOX News. At least they don't have Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman slobbering all over themselves. I actually had more respect for "Baghdad Bob" who was the Iraqi News Minister during the beginning of the Iraq War.

During this interview here is one of the little snippets from the mouth of the world's most articulate and intelligent human:

"And my job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives". Did the world's most articulate and intelligent human perhaps leave something out? Perhaps he might have left out the part about the Muslims who want ALL Jews and everyone else who is non-Muslim dead.

Perhaps he also might have forgotten the part of his job that has to do with "Protecting" and "Preserving" and "Defending" the Constitution of the United States. Oh, but I almost forgot. President Obama made the statement that our Constitution had "Deep Flaws". That our Constitution reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues today.

He went on to tell the Muslim World about a draw down of troops in Iraq and closing Guantanamo and that while we were going to pursue terrorist organizations that it would be done respecting the rule of law. Now I don't know about the rest of you, but an Illinois politician harping about the "Rule of Law" strikes me as a bit bizarre.

And speaking of MSNBC, if I were to suddenly be in a position of power in that dippy network, Keith Olberman and Chris Matthews would BOTH have the life expectancy of a male praying mantis on his wedding night. (Now for those of you residing in the Freedom Loving Workers Province of Austin perhaps I'd better explain. You see, immediately after the male praying mantis fertilizes the female, she bites off his head and eats him for protein, so you see immediately after mating the male is toast.)

RINO:

Now for those of you who reside in the "People's Republic of San Francisco" RINO is an acronym. Now once again for you residents of PelosiLand, an acronym according to Webster is:

"A word formed from the first or first few letters of several words."

Thus the words Republican In Name Only, would create the acronym of RINO.

I am pretty sure that many of you already know a few of those people who belong to the Republican party but subscribe to very few Republican views. Of course in the past you have known that: Voinovich (R-OH), Snowe (R-ME), Hagel (R-NE) and Lugar (R-IN). But here in the first week of the Obama Presidency, and I must say that it came as no surprise to me, but three more Republican Senators began to kiss up to Obama and began to urge everyone to participate in bi-partisan behavior and "Unite" behind President Obama. Of course I am speaking of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and neither of them came as much of a surprise. I am basing that from a couple of years back and their views on the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Legislation which was co-sponsored by John McCain and "Fat Teddy". But this past week I was a bit surprised that they were joined by a Senator whom I had always thought was pretty conservative all the way through. I am speaking of Senator Orin Hatch (R-UT). I was pretty disappointed in his efforts to get everyone to play nice with the new regime. How about sticking to your guns and doing what is right?

And before the liberals/socialists get bent out of shape I am pretty much of the same views as expressed by Rush Limbaugh. And that is this:

If President Obama wants to pursue policies which will make our country less safe, head down the path toward socialism, erode our Constitutional rights and pursue programs which have never worked, are not working now, and never will work, and in general make our country weaker, then I hope Obama fails.

I don't give the first damn about bi-partisanship nor do I really have any feelings of guilt for being the strongest country on the planet. If Obama and the rest of the liberals want to feel guilty then have at it. But I hope that President Obama remembers one thing. He was elected President of the United States and not some global President.

I would like to see us get along with other countries but not at the expense of our sovereignty.

MISCELLANEOUS:

President Obama was upset with Merrill Lynch for allegedly spending $1.5 million in TARP for re-modeling of executive suites. But the money they used was not TARP money. Now, which decorator is Barack Hussein and Michelle Obama using to re-decorate the White House? The same firm which did the work for Merrill Lynch.

I imagine that most of us have seen the video of the House of Representatives hearing testimony on the solvency of FreddieMac and FannieMae. It was fairly obvious to me that the Republican Representatives knew back then that there was something wrong with the way those to companies were conducting business. The people in charge of the oversight were certainly trying to tell Congress that FreddieMac and FannieMae were "Cookin' The Books". But, Congress Varmints Maxine Waters (D-CA), Gregory Meeks (D-NY), Lacy Clay (D-MO), Arthur Davis (D-AL) and of course Barney Frank (D-MA) were incensed that these investigators could even suggest such a thing. They knew nothing and these Congress Mutts knew everything. Only problem is, they were WRONG. I absolutely could not believe how those elected officials talked down to the people who were trying to tell them that there were big problems. I would have been pretty hard pressed not to have cornered Congressman Gregory Meeks during a break and slapped him into another time zone. Of course you would have had to be a little more gentle with Barney Frank. I don't think he could take a serious ass whipping.

I got an e-mail a couple of days back which was a notification of the death of Col James E. Swett - USMC. Col Swett was a pilot during WW II and was awarded the Medal of Honor. I had seen a program on the History Channel on Medal of Honor recipients and Col. Swett's story was one they covered. If I remember correctly, in his first air combat, he shot down 7 Japanese aircraft. According to the program after shooting down his last one, his aircraft was also damaged and he had to ditch in the ocean. He was picked up by a Naval vessel. All in all a really great story. Col. Swett was in his 80's when he passed away.

Earlier this week I was listening to a blurb on one of the sports radio shows and they were talking about the Presidential exercise programs. They brought out the fact that Clinton was a jogger; President Bush rode mountain bikes; but Barack Obama was a basketball player. He summed it up by saying, "It's good to see that President Obama plays 'A Game of the People'. It's nice to know that we have a President who will sacrifice his body to go after a loose ball." I don't know about the rest of you but I am not nearly as interested in a President who will go after a loose ball as much as I am one who will stand up to Russia, China, Iran, and the other nations who do not have our best interests at heart. The people did not elect a "Point-Guard-In-Chief".

Last year I wrote several pieces about the NAFTA SuperHiway and the TransTexas Corridor which was actually the first leg of the NAFTA SuperHiway. This was to be a toll road which ran for the West Coast of Mexico, through Texas and eventually into Canada. It was to be 1200 feet in width and also have a rail system run parallel to the highway. It was also to be financed by European money. Last Thursday I attended a luncheon in which the chairman of the Tom Green County Republican Party and many elected Republican County and State officials were present. During the question and answer session a lady asked about the present progress of the TransTexas Corridor. I don't recall which one of the officials answered the question but we were told that the construction was on hold and the width of the corridor had been cut in half and was now 600 feet in width. Now here is the good part. Nobody calls it the TransTexas Corridor or the NAFTA SuperHiway anymore. It is now called "Inter Native Connectivity". So I guess that all you need to do is a name change and everything will be OK.

I was listening to one of the daytime talk radio shows and they played an audio clip of some black politician who made the statement that Obama's election did not mean an end to racism but it did make America a little less racist. He went on to say that it was a Down Payment. A down payment? OK. Now tell us the interest rates and what will our monthly or annual payments be?

I was watching an interview with Neil Cavuto a couple of days back and I have come to pretty well respect many of his views on financial matters. Anyway he made a statement regarding the "Great Depression" of the 1930's. You remember, the one that the liberals/socialists tell us was ended by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "New Deal". Neil Cavuto said that was a bunch of bunk that World War Two was the main reason our country came out of the depression. He went on to say that the only two ways to end a recession or a depression were War and Tax Cuts. I have heard many economists say that you cannot tax or spend or borrow your way out of debt or a depression.

January 14, 2009 MGM INFLATION HATE

Wednesday - January 14, 2009

Hello once again from The West Texas Headquarters Of Ammunition Hoarding Jingoistic Gun Clingers.

Let me begin by telling you that I have not been kidding regarding purchasing ammunition before the prices go up to the point of it being un-affordable. A couple of days ago I went to our local Wal-Mart Super Center. I have been purchasing ammunition there for the past 5 years. Imagine my surprise when I went to the sporting goods section to purchase a couple of boxes of .22 stingers and one of those 500 round bricks of .22 long rifle ammunition for my two youngest grandsons, only to find out that they had not one single round of .22 long rifle or .22 magnum ammunition in the store. I noticed that in their section which handled handgun ammunition they had one box of .32 automatic ammunition. The were completely sold out of .380, 9mm, .38 special, .357 magnum, .40 caliber, and .45 automatic ammunition. Nor did they have any .44 magnum or .45 long colt. That box of .32 automatic was the ONLY handgun ammunition.

Nor did they have any 30-06, .308, 30-30, .223, .243, or .280 ammunition for rifles. They were completely sold out of all of the rifle magnum rounds. I asked the clerk if they were going to get any more ammunition in at any time soon and he said that he hoped so but that their warehouse was also out of ammunition. They only had bird shot in the .12 and .20 gauges for shotguns.

Just for the heck of it I checked at another local gun shop and they had quite a bit of ammunition on hand but the guy there told me that the .500 round bricks of Federal .22 long rifle ammunitions had just gone up in price from about $12 to almost $20.

So my point is this. If you find ammunition for any of your firearms, you had better jump on it quick before it is gone and the Obama administration gets some idiotic legislation passed which will either drive the price of ammunition up to the point of un-affordability or drive some of the ammunition manufacturers out of business with stupid regulations.

HATE CRIMES:

I don't know whether or not you live in an area which has "Hate Crime" legislation already passed. Now this is one of those things which might sound all right but when you really examine this type of legislation, you will find that it is the first step in the formation of the "Thought Police". I know prior to leaving the State of New Mexico our state mandated crime reporting form had a section in which the investigating officer had to check a box to determine whether or not a particular act was a "Hate Crime". It got me to wondering that if in fact there were such a thing as a "Hate Crime" then conversely there should also be a category of criminal acts which would be classified as "Love Crimes" or perhaps "Love Behavior". But then if they did that, why stop there? Why not have a couple of categories entitled:

"Upset But Not Really Mad" crimes.

"Fairly Pissed Off But Not Angry" crimes.

"Pretty Well Mad" crimes.

Actually the whole point of all this idiotic "Hate Crime" legislation was to make sure that if the victim were members of ANY group which could be called a "Minority" that doing something to them was worse than if the same act were perpetrated on you or your family.

I can't remember when all this "Hate Crime" crap started but I can sure tell you that it has gone way further than necessary. I do know this for sure though. A murder victim is dead regardless of their race, religion,height, weight,hair color, ethnic background, sexual preference, or sex. And I thought it was fairly inane to expect an investigating officer to make a call as to the thoughts of the perpetrator. I also always wondered what would happen if the murder victim, right before death, uttered the words, "I HATE YOU" to the perpetrator? Then we would need another whole category called "Reverse Hate Crimes".

Now to show you just how idiotic all of this can be, I was listening to a news program the other morning and it was reported that in jolly old England one group of liberal idiots were attempting to get the lyrics to the song "The Hokey Pokey" classified as "Hate Speech". Now with Great Britain becoming as socialist as they are, this does not surprise me in the least. But,"The Hokey Pokey"? (Oh, before I forget, for those of you residing in the 'People's Republic Of San Francisco', the lyrics to a song are the words."

INFLATION:

With all of the financial problems occurring in our country from real estate foreclosures, stock market crashes, federal bail outs of the auto industry, federal bail outs of banks and lending institutions, I read an article in yesterday's (Sub) Standard Times about some real inflation elsewhere. In Zimbabwe, their wonderful government is now printing a $50 BILLION note. I have never heard of any denomination of currency this large. But this $50 billion note is actually worth $1.25 U.S. Currency. (For those of you living in the Freedom Loving Worker's Province of Massachusetts that is One Dollar and Twenty Five Cents)

I am sure that many of you remember that the present country of Zimbabwe had been called Rhodesia and Southern Rhodesia at various points in time when it was a British Colony up until 1965 when the country declared its independence fro Great Britain but returned to Colonial status briefly in 1979 up until control was turned over to the majority in 1980 and re-named Zimbabwe. Much of what was Zimbabwe was under the control of several primitive African tribes until the Matabele under their founder and King Mzilikazi invaded the area from South Africa. The Matabele under this king were break aways from the Zulu nation under their founder and King, Shaka. Mzilikazi had been a general under Shaka. The Matabele were as warlike and well trained as the Zulus and it did not take long for them to conquer the other tribes, principle among which were the Mashona people.

And of course the politically correct historians don't want us civilized people to know that the Matabele enslaved all of the other tribes. The only reason they were allowed to live was to do the labor for the war-like Matabele. I read one account of an encounter between a British envoy and a Matabele King. The King was asked about who did all of the manual labor insofar as tending the crops and doing all of the heavy lifting so to speak and the Matabele King's answer was this: "Why do you think we allow these Shona Monkeys to live? They do that work." So as you can see, Africa knew slavery long before the white men took power.

And basically things haven't gotten much better in Zimbabwe under the present rule of Robert Mugabe. There has been ethnic cleansing and of course the present government has taken over EVERYTHING of value in that country. They seized property of people, both black and white, whose ancestors were born in Rhodesia before Robert Mugabe was born.

So evidently the general population was better off under British Colonial rule than they are at the present under the dictatorship of Robert Mugabe. At least their $59 Billion note would purchase more than a cup of coffee at the Target Store. Hey! What about a Federal Bailout?

MGM:

Yesterday I was watching the second of a three part series on the Metro-Goldwin-Mayer movie studios. In looking at the movie industry today it is amazing how much things and people have changed. Back during the 1930's and 1940's, MGM studios had most of your really top name entertainers. They showed a film at some gathering, I believe it was on Louis B. Mayer's birthday. Just some of the famous actors at this gathering were: Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, Robert Taylor, David Niven, Mickey Rooney, William Powell, Errol Flynn. Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Spencer Tracy, Ray Bolger, Hedy Lamarr, Judy Garland, Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Kathryn Hepburn, Vivian Leigh, Greer Garson, and the list goes on.

Incidentally, Hedy Lamarr was probably the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Besides being beautiful, she was also very intelligent. In the early 1940's, Hedy Lamarr and a man named George Antheil invented a radio control guidance system for torpedoes which was well ahead of its time. She also assisted in developing some type of advanced communications system. She actually toyed with the idea of quitting the movies and devoting full time into developing inventions.

Of course when World War II broke out, unlike today's so called stars, the movie greats began to volunteer. Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, Robert Taylor and many others volunteered and were inducted into various branches of the U.S. Military. David Niven was a British Commando in WW II. Several others including Errol Flynn attempted to enlist but could not pass the physical. Lana Turner, Bette Davis, Hedy Lamarr and many other actresses did work for the USO. And of course we all know about Bob Hope and the work that he has done. A far cry from these overpaid mutts who call themselves "Stars" in today's industry.

Part three will be on this evening and I am not going to miss it.

MISCELLANEOUS:

OK. Here is a little something for the liberals/socialists to think about. Please tell me how much "Gun Control" has helped the State of California. I heard these figures from a FOX News program. In Oakland, California the Murder Rate is 5.7 TIMES higher than the national average. The Robbery Rate is 5.9 TIMES higher than the national average. The rate of Rape is 2.5 TIMES higher than the national average. Yes sir. Gun control works. BUT it only works in favor of the criminals.

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon was indicted for accepting illegal gifts while in office and using Gift Cards intended for use by the poor to purchase things for herself. Hey! Doesn't she realize that she lives in BALTIMORE,MARYLAND? Where does she think she is? CHICAGO?

Earlier in the week there was a video of Britain's Prince Harry, who is presently serving in the British Military, I believe in Afghanistan. In this film which was taken, evidently in a combat area, showed Prince Harry making a statement and using the term "Raghead". This evidently insulted some idiotic member of the media and they made the film public. It was shown on FOX News during an interview with Monica Crowley and some other diva. Anyway the other girl was shocked that Prince Harry used this term and thought he should be stripped of his title, I suppose. BUT Monica Crowley said that she was tired of the "Feminization" of our fighting forces and said that she had much rather they all talked like General Patton. I didn't see anything about what the British press thought about it. Probably thought it should be a "Hate Crime". Anyway, I do like Monica Crowley. She is very conservative. Very pretty. But she has a complete varmint for a brother-in-law. Alan Colmes is married to her sister.

Earlier today I went into a local book store. Also while at the Wal-Mart store the other day, I checked in the book section. I have never seen so many books with Barack Hussein Obama's picture on the cover. They must have been lying in the wings just waiting for him to be elected so they could bombard us with all of these books about the chosen one.

VARMINTS:

"Fat Teddy" (Senator Edward Kennedy); "Fat Albert" (AlGore); "Ol Bug Eyes"(Nancy Pelosi); Harry Reid; Rahm Emanuel; Barney Frank; Chris Dodd; Dick Durbin; Al Franken AND Every Single Person In Minnesota Who Voted For This Turd

QUOTES:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of LIBERALISM, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing what happened.

Peek; John Mallory DEA

I was listening to a news report the other day from Washington, D.C. and they were saying that they expected over one million people to attend the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama. So being the good American that I am, I cancelled my plans to attend this auspicious event thereby cutting back the work of the D.C. police. I hope I can count on most of you to cancel your plans as I know that each and every one of you were every bit as interested in attending as was I.

So instead of attending the inauguration I guess I will continue my ammunition search.

January 7, 2009 CIA UN GLOBAL WARMING

Wednesday - January 7, 2009

Happy New Year and greetings from The New And Improved Association Of Jingoistic Gun Clinging Ammunition Hoarding Conspirators.

CIA:

Well all the talk over the past couple of days has been over the appointment of Leon Panetta as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Needless to say that I do not believe this to be an appointment which will be in the best interests of our nation. I do not believe that during a time when we have troops fighting terror abroad and local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies fighting terror at home, is a very good time to experiment with someone with absolutely no intelligence background or training to head this important agency. I guess we should all be thankful though that Barack Obama didn't appoint Valerie Plame or her idiot husband to head the agency.

This appointment should really not come as a complete surprise as it was made by a President Elect who himself is dangerously inexperienced. Perhaps though we can understand why the appointment was made. As already stated, Barack Obama himself has no experience in this field. So while you or I might want to appoint the most experienced person we could to head the CIA, this is simply not the democrat/socialist way. Secondly, Leon Panetta has shown during his past position as White House Chief of Staff under Bill Clinton that he is completely loyal to the socialist who appoints him to any position. And when you look at it, Barack Obama made a smarter choice than did President Bush when he left George Tenet as head of the CIA. If you will all remember, George Tenet was appointed by that fierce warrior, Bill Clinton. Also let us not lose sight of the fact that Leon Panetta is against the Patriot Act and electronic surveillance and surprisingly enough, so is the future President. So I guess we had better be prepared to see our government spend massive amounts of taxpayer money on stools as many of these terrorist mutts will probably be made to sit in the corner for hours on end. That is unless their self esteem might suffer.

I am convinced from listening to various others who are experienced in the intelligence field that our country will suffer another attack within a year of Barack Hussein Obama taking office. A damn high price to pay for being fashionable and politically correct.

SENATE:

Let me first state the obvious. I have no high regard for Roland Burris who was the man named by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to fill the vacant U.S. Senate seat created when Barack Hussein Obama resigned. I refuse to believe that Mr. Burris is any different from any other Illinois politician who has been a member of the corrupt democrat machine which has been running Illinois for years. But the fact remains that since Blagojevich has not been impeached and is still the Governor of the State of Illinois, that his appointment is legal and under the Constitution should be recognized as valid. The main reason, however, that I am taking this particular stance is that Mr. Burris' appointment has Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Illinois Senator Dick Durbin on "TILT". Anything which those two idiots are against, I am in 100% support. On the other hand, of course, if those two turds were for the appointment, I could take the other position just as easily. If you have formed the opinion that neither Harry Reid or Dick Durbin could do anything which would please me, then you are very perceptive.

GLOBAL WARMING:

A few days back in our local liberal rag, The (Sub) Standard Times, [ For those of you residing in the People's Republic of San Francisco, the word "Sub" in parenthesis is my addition and not actually a part of the name of the liberal rag] there appeared an article regarding how many species of birds had been observed recently in our fair city. The article stated that this bird count was conducted by the National Audubon Society. This included the area within a 15 mile radius centered at the H.E.B. parking lot. The group's sponsor noted that the Great Tailed Grackle and White-Winged Doves have been "creeping into the area".

This study noted that there were 116 species of our feathered friends spotted, a total of 25,590 birds. This count was down from 2007 when a total of 30,213 birds were observed. The most common bird was the Common Grackle totaling 11,487 birds. This terribly interesting article also listed the following numbers as the highest count numbers ever recorded in the 44 years San Angelo has participated in the count for these specific species:

* Black-bellied whistling duck: 15

* Neo tropic cormorants: 15

* Eurasian collard dove: 190

* Hooded merganser: 88

* Carolina wren: 19

Now while all this information was interesting but not horribly important to the average American, either this group or the broad who wrote the article came to this conclusion:

"These birds have come in the area relatively recently because of: shifts in habitat that were almost ASSUREDLY EXACERBATED BY GLOBAL WARMING. The study also noted that there was a marked absence of regular wintering birds, including cedar waxwings, lark buntings, and dark-eyed juncos. Also notably absent were both western and eastern screech owls." Aren't owls generally a nocturnal bird? So, how many then should we expect to see during the daylight hours?

Now before you go off half cocked, the article also went on to explain that there were 20 participants who took place in the 2008 count.

So let me get this straight: 20 people spread out over a 30 mile circle made their one day count and came to the conclusion that the count showed almost ASSUREDLY that the amount and species of birds in our area was due to GLOBAL WARMING. One must wonder if all of our scientific information is conducted in such an in depth manner?

Never mind that many places on our planet are reporting colder than normal temperatures. Never mind that many reports by the scientific community show that our polar ice caps are actually INCREASING. Never mind that a recent article reported that our sea ice is approaching 1979 volume. Never mind that in the past 25 years or so that our polar bear population has gone from 5,000 to over 25,000. No let us all sit idly by and follow the lead of that fat jerk, Al Gore.

Also, if they are worried about the increase in the grackle population, just say the word and I can go to work on cutting it down significantly.

GOVERNMENT INTRUSION:

I read an article a couple of days back which was written by George Will. The article was entitled: Government Intrusion Blossoming.

Mr. Will began his article pointing out that in 1966, the price of eggs rose to a level that then President Lyndon Johnson judged, God knows how, was too high. Mr. Will pointed out that there were two culprits ---- Supply and Demand ------ and Johnson's agriculture secretary told him that there was not much that could be done.

LBJ, however, a can do fellow, directed the U.S. Surgeon General to dampen demand by warning the nation about the hazards of cholesterol in eggs. Incidentally, I have watched reports by several medical doctors who say that the cholesterol scare regarding eggs is in error.

Today we have our Congress getting into our every day operations and bring politics ------- like the push for green cars ------- into the equation. But don't worry, no less an authority than Congressmutt Barney Frank said: "Oh well, a push for green cars is very much a part of what we're involved in. We don't think that's politics."

So when the government sticks its hands into our economy, uses its power to compel an industry to pursue the objectives of the political party that controls both of the government's political branches, we should not view that as POLITICS. Now Barney Frank said that he was not competent to say whether or not GM should acquire Chrysler, he obviously views himself at the top of the competency heap to say what type of vehicles the auto industry should make.

I personally think that Congressidiot Frank was, as William F. Buckley would have said, "Fastidiously Correct" when he indicated that he was short on the competency gene.

Now if you think that our federal government ceases its involvement in our everyday lives with their pitiful showing on our economy, just look at what they have done to our public education system, AT EVERY LEVEL. Now go back and remember what Nikita Kruschev said many years ago about taking us without firing a shot and doing it through our children.

U.N.:

I have watched several reports regarding proposed U.N. resolutions and U.N. rhetoric regarding the fighting between the Israelis and the Hamas Terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

In case you have not gathered from my past expressions on my views of the United Nations, let me bring you up to date. They are useless. They are irrelevant. They are dishonest. They are a drain on our economy. We should either use the Corleone method of diplomacy (Make them an offer they can't refuse) and if they don't take heed, pull all of our funding and close down the headquarters in New York City and let them set up shop elsewhere.

As has been shown too often in the past, none of the aggressive terrorist countries pay the U.N. any heed. When you look at a map of the Mid-East and look at tiny Israel completely surrounded by Muslim Nations and if you pay any attention at all to what the real intentions of these Muslim countries are, you should have absolutely no doubt as to the incompetency of the diplomatic efforts of the United Nations. They have about as much a chance of success as you would trying to block my wife at the front of Tuesday Morning during their 90% off after Christmas sale. In case you don't know how ugly that can get, just try it sometime. (Also, for those of you fortunate enough to live in "The Freedom Loving People's Province of Austin, Tuesday Morning is the name of a rather large department store).

KEYNES AT HARVARD - Published 1960

** The Keynesian theory of economics has swept the academic world to an extent unprecedented in modern times. The focal point of the Keynesian doctrine in the United States has been Harvard University. From Harvard Keynesian influence spread to Yale, Princeton, University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and eventually almost every College and University in the United States.

From academic circles the Keynesian dogma percolated into government departments on all levels. Not only those bureaus having to do with economic and statistical matters were affected but policy making bodies such as the State Department, the Presidential Office, the Treasury Department, the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Labor were dominated by Keynesian thinking.

Certain industrialists, particularly those depending on government contracts and handouts, became enamored of this new philosophy.

A check of the outstanding representatives of Keynesism in America discloses the fact that they are largely the same people who had been leaders in the socialist movement for many years past. **

A bunch of this stuff should be looking pretty familiar to us all. Keep in mind this publication was published in 1960 (For those of you currently being held prisoner in the Gulag of Boston, that would be 49 years ago.)

VARMINTS:

"Fat Teddy" Senator Edward Kennedy; "Fat Albert" Al Gore; Harry Reid; Nancy Pelosi; DIck Durbin; Rod Blagojevich; Rahm Emanuel; Barney Frank; Senator Chris Dodd; Every person in Minnesota who voted for that turd Al Franken.***

*** Have any of you ever noticed that Al Franken looks frighteningly like Thaddeus J. Toad in the old Walt Disney cartoon feature of "The Wind In The Willows"?

MISCELLANEOUS:

OK. I'm pretty sure you all are already aware of this but your time is running out to purchase either individually or the entire set of the President Barack Obama Commemorative Coins. The set consists of the Statue of Liberty on one side of the coin and on the other side "In Color" is Barack Hussein Obama and either George Washington; John F. Kennedy; Abraham Lincoln; OR the Hawaiian Islands.

Surely you must all be almost as excited as I was when I found out that these collector coins were going to be made available to us commoners. I am sorry but I cannot tell you the price of the coins as I was too busy rolling on the floor with laughter at some idiot's idea of pushing these pieces of crap off on the American public.

Last week I was listening to the Glenn Beck radio program and they were interviewing various people who were residents of the United States who had live here for five years. They were all asked questions which were pretty simple and had they been U.S. Citizens, should have known most of the answers. One dude was asked the question as to what would be John McCain's position now that the election was over. The answer was of course, he would be the Vice President since he came in second behind Barack Obama. Anyway the results surprisingly showed that most of these Obama voters had an I.Q. which roughly approached that of a soccer ball.

Yesterday I received an e-mail from a friend in the Tucson,Arizona area. This person was at a local club and was involved in a conversation with a new acquaintance and during the discussion they got on a subject and it seems as if each of them were in contact with some conservative Jingoistic nut from Texas. They both then figured out that it was the same guy. ME. Needless to say, I was really pleased to learn that this proves that there is definitely a brotherhood/sisterhood among us conservatives. Anyway I got a kick out of it.

Yesterday, my wife and I took part in a little volunteer program which we do every January and at other times during the year when we are called upon. Here in San Angelo there is a locally run program entitled "Meals For The Elderly". This is not "Meals On Wheels" which receives federal and other government funding. This program is entirely financed through donations and local fund raisers. With just a very few exceptions, all of the workers are volunteers and the administrative costs of this organization are something like 8%. Compare that with some of the administrative costs of some of these national so called charities at from 60% to 75%.

Anyway, our route was in a relatively low income section of the city and it was pretty easy to tell that most of these people lived on either their small Social Security income or in some cases they were living on their deceased spouse's Social Security. All of them were over 70 years old and some had to use walking assisted devices. Our last meal delivery was to a lady who I would guess to be in her late 80's. She was bedridden and lived alone. There was a note on the delivery sheet and also on her door to bring the meal to her in her bedroom. The house was small with a small kitchen, a small living area, a bathroom and one small bedroom with a small black and white TV. I took the meal back to the lady and she did have a wheel chair at her bedside. No one was in the house with her. This little lady had a nice smile on her face and when I set the meal down on the table and handed her a newspaper, she smiled and said "Thank you honey, you have a nice day."

This is the type of greeting you generally receive from these people who are certainly among our poorer residents. Their attitude is amazing and I never do this without stopping to realize just how very fortunate most of us are. So every time this year when I get to thinking about how the world has treated me, I will think of this little bedridden lady with the nice smile and great attitude.

I sincerely hope all of you and your families have a great 2009. My 2009 got off to a pretty good start with the Fiesta Bowl with Texas being on the winning end of a 24 - 21 game. It was a really exciting game up until the last few seconds.

So with that I must be off to continue my quest in search of something which does not offend the Nation of Islam. In the event I am unsuccessful in this seemingly impossible task, I will try to locate a democrat politician who possesses even the slightest vestige of common sense.

If unable to complete either of these tasks, I think I'll just buy up all the ammunition I can.

Later
