I Lied Again

It was too good to pass up. Unemployed? Gee, I wonder why. It might be photo shopped but who cares.

In Ohio It Pays To Be A School Administrator

If you don't happen to be a resident of Ohio you might as well stop reading. In regard to Issue 2 up for vote on November 8: If you are an Ohio administrator the School Board pays your entire pension. If you are a dunce this means the taxpayer pays.
How dumb can voters be?

Presidents The Media Love

John Edwards and Bill Clinton: these birds grew in stature as their pants dropped to the floor. What is it with a democrat that makes them horn dogs and heroes of the Left?
Business Insider exposes more.

Kim Kardashian Makes It Official

It took 72 days but Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from NBA player, Kris Humphries. The reason? Well, it's that old 'irreconcilable differences' ploy. What is that, anyway? Does it mean she likes Crest he's into Colgate? Lizzie and I have had the 'irreconcilable differences' problem but it gets solved this way: Lizzie wins, I lose. It's worked fairly well for forty-two years. The headlines for this marriage should have read 'over two months'. That seems like such a much longer time than 72 days.
I hope Kris had a good time while it lasted. It's going to cost him millions.
Humphries said he was blinded by the news. I would be too if I had found out about it from TMZ as he did.

A High Tech Lynching

Herman Cain was right. There's coming to get him. The accusation is that, decades ago, he made an inappropriate reference to an anonymous female. Now, if Herman Cain was smart he'd turn into a democrat grab a couple of 'trashy' chicks and do the following: drop his trousers and tell one of the girls to 'kiss it'. Take one of the gals to a motel and, despite his denials, rape her. After these accusations he could have a spokesman follow up with "drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find. How about this one? Has Mr. Cain be exposed for receiving fellatio on an Easter Sunday while talking on the telephone to a congressman about troop levels overseas? That's why the democrats think Mr. Bill is so wonderful. It's only about sex.
But Herman Cain is evil because an anonymous person gave an anonymous account of an anonymous incident X years ago. This is something that Geraldo needs to jump on. It's an Al Capone story.

Obama's Pig

Most people don't concentrate when they read. I should write, "most people concentrate more when they watch a video". I wonder how come the Pigford case has been kept under wraps for so long without exposure? What it's all about is giving millions and millions of your dollars to black farmers, 84,000, when there are only 16,000 in the US. It's about Barack Obama in 2008 going into black churches and telling the folk it's about reparations. Now, the black Panther's are involved. Someone do something, please

Mary Beth Hicks: Cultural Columnist

I lied. Yesterday I wrote I would not mention the 'Occupier Crowd' again. Then I came across Mary Beth Hicks. She's a cultural columnist who wrote the highly successful book, "Don't Let Them Drink The Kool-Aid". In essence, she said be careful of what is given to your school aged children as fact by their teachers.
She also has some advice on the ragamuffin dead beats occupying our streets.
This will take awhile to read. It's much longer than a typical blog but you'll be interested, I promise.

Call it an occupational hazard, but I can’t look at the Occupy Wall Street protesters without thinking, “Who parented these people?”

As a culture columnist, I’ve commented on the social and political ramifications of the “movement” – now known as “OWS” – whose fairyland agenda can be summarized by one of their placards: “Everything for everybody.”

Thanks to their pipe-dream platform, it’s clear there are people with serious designs on “transformational” change in America who are using the protesters like bedsprings in a brothel.

Yet it’s not my role as a commentator that prompts my parenting question, but rather the fact that I’m the mother of four teens and young adults. There are some crucial life lessons that the protesters’ moms clearly have not passed along.

Here, then, are five things the OWS protesters’ mothers should have taught their children but obviously didn’t, so I will:

• Life isn’t fair. The concept of justice – that everyone should be treated fairly – is a worthy and worthwhile moral imperative on which our nation was founded. But justice and economic equality are not the same. Or, as Mick Jagger said, “You can’t always get what you want.”

No matter how you try to “level the playing field,” some people have better luck, skills, talents or connections that land them in better places. Some seem to have all the advantages in life but squander them, others play the modest hand they’re dealt and make up the difference in hard work and perseverance, and some find jobs on Wall Street and eventually buy houses in the Hamptons. Is it fair? Stupid question.

• Nothing is “free.” Protesting with signs that seek “free” college degrees and “free” health care make you look like idiots, because colleges and hospitals don’t operate on rainbows and sunshine. There is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational careers and “slow paths” to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical.

While I’m pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things that are not free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers, trash hauling, repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids and the food that inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift protest kitchens. Real people with real dollars are underwriting your civic temper tantrum.

• Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate student loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity you decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose educational pursuits that don’t require loans, or to seek technical or vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your ongoing educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college student is not a state of victimization. It’s a privilege that billions of young people around the globe would die for – literally.

• A protest is not a party. On Saturday in New York, while making a mad dash from my cab to the door of my hotel to avoid you, I saw what isn’t evident in the newsreel footage of your demonstrations: Most of you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in a sober pursuit of social and political change don’t dance jigs down Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look foolish, you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don’t seem to realize that all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.

• There are reasons you haven’t found jobs. The truth? Your tattooed necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn’t a virtue. Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. If you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the problem. It’s not them. It’s you.

Best Trick Or Treaat Costume

One Last Thought On Protester's

With the snow storms in Colorado and all along the East Coast I say, "let 'em stay".
Ask yourself this, 'where are the riff-raff located'? All in unison now: Can you say New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, Seattle, Portland? Folks, these places were liberal cesspools long before unemployed hippies moved in. I had the opportunity to visit the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle years back. It's one of those places where, when you walk in, you have to go through a corridor of homeless bums. Now, I have pity on these folks. That's why I put my wallet inside the front of my jockeys and assumed a fig leaf pose as I moved around. 'Let' them stay' should be our mantra. These havens for scum are run by democrats who have set a pattern of destruction for their cities long before I put my toesies on this earth. "Mayor Bloomberg, keep up the good work. You deserve everything you get". What the Occupy people don't realize is they could grab their sleeping bags and head out to Detroit. They have thousands of vacant homes. You know what they say about the Motor City? If Toledo is the A-hole of the nation then Detroit is fifty miles up. Yep, you guessed it; another town owned by the DemocRats.

Airlines: They Don't Get It

Here's the scenario; a Jet Blue takes off from Ft. Lauderdale and, because of the East Coast snow storm, is diverted to an airport in Connecticut. It's on the ground for seven hours-----waiting to find a debarkation bay. There is no water and no restroom facilities. People are literally pissed off.
A story of this nature is in the news frequently. The airline apologizes, makes all kinds of promises to the public to make sure it doesn't happen again; yada, yada, yada.
Remember when I wrote about my son having the same thing done to he and his family last summer? "Airlines", he said, "are quick to apologize without offering any financial compensation for time and inconvenience but if you're baggage is one ounce over the limit they'll nail you with an extra charge in a heart beat".

Trick Or Treat: "I'd Rather Have Razor Blades"

I'm being petty alright. Anything to throw mud at the Worst Family. Harken back to the days of old when you were out Trick or Treating with your pals. Remember what you'd do if some kindly old soul dropped an apple in your bag? I'd take it out and try to plunk a street light. That's what I did. So, Barry and Michelle have that one covered,too. They're passing out dried fruit. They've taken the fun out of being a vandal. Gimme a break.

Think About It: Average Tea Party Rally Vs. Occupy Rally

How To Speak Liberal

From John Hawkins at RightWing News is a list of 20 phrases to explain to us commoners how Progressives think. These funny lines were written in response to some typically not funny lines about republicans by some yahoo at the Huffington Post. You can read those, too, by going to the attachment at the bottom. Libs don't have much of a sense of humor.

Compassion: Feeling good about yourself for wanting to give away money you didn’t earn to people you hope will vote for your side.

“Conscience of the Senate”: KKK member.

Flag: Something to be burned and walked on at protests or alternately, waved close to election time.

Greed: Wanting to keep money you’ve earned instead of having it spent on Bridges to Nowhere and government loans to people who’ve contributed to Obama’s campaign.

You can read the rest here

Heeere's Rachel!

Rachel is 20 years old and an unemployed cosmetologist. Why Is that? She's occupying Wall Street. Let MJH set the scenario: "Mom, Dad, I'm in love with this wonderful girl and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I think you'll like her a lot. She'll be a great mom. We plan on having a house full of children together. Until we come up with another tent big enough for two can we stay with you for awhile? You won't have to worry about our health insurance. I've got six more years while living at home with you so, I'm saving you big money".
"Hey, honey, you can come in the kitchen now and meet your new Mom and Dad".

OWS Sanctioned For Public Masturbation

The Occupiers aren’t a political movement, they are a crime wave! It started with sexual assault, drug dealing, rioting and attacks on police officers. Now Occupy Madison has been denied a permit because of a history of public masturbation:
Why is it when a person watches the Lame Stream Media they only get a slice of the picture?
You can read the story from PowerLine

But Think Of The Protester's

Those poor, poor protester's on Wall Street; having to endure the winter's breath of frost and snow.
The question might be, will they stay or will they go? We need some sleeping bag manufacturer's, tent makers, pot producers and meth labs set up in one big hurry to help these people out. Otherwise, well it might be too sad to mention what might befall their plan. By the way, what in hell is their plan?

Tea Partiers See Cain As A Black Man Who Knows His Place Says MSNBC

Conservatives of all strips can't win when it comes to renowned commentators such as Martin Bashir of MSNBC and the very astute, Jeanneane Garafalo. According to them the only reason we support Mr. Cain is because he knows his place. Aren't they a hoot. It's only beginning pardners. As Mr. Cain said, "He's ready for a high tech lynching from the Left-Wing media". Smart man!

My opinion only but I think the Left is jealous that we on the Right can support an authentic Black man instead of some warmed over mulatto.

"Oh No, Not The Cardinals"!!

If God will kindly allow yours truly to hate one thing in this world it would be the St. Louis Cardinals. If God would allow me to pray for one thing it would be that their free agent, Albert Pujols, signs with my beloved Chicago Cubs.

Texas Gun School: Obama Supporters And Muslims Not Allowed

So, there's this guy in Mason, Texas who runs a gun school. He took out an ad in a local radio station. It was straightforward: if you support Obama or are an Arab Muslim don't waste his time and yours trying to sign up. I like his style.

Only Fourteen More Months

The Big Question Is

It's not really that big a question because not many care but what does Chaz Bono do to earn money? I heard he's(aren't I kind) some kind of activist for transgendered people but I didn't know that qualified as a salary provider.
It seems like yesterday when Sonny and Cher brought out that cute little Chastity at the end of their show. Who would have thought----------------.

"If I Were A Liberal"

You know how much I adore Ann Coulter's writing. Give her latest column a gander. I promise you will think and laugh at the same time.

The Devil Is In The Details

"Barack, I Love You"

Now that the State Department has spent $70,000 of taxpayer money on Barry's autobiography I feel---ecstasy within my body. The books will be dispensed throughout the world. As is mentioned in the Washington Times article the distribution is reminiscent of when Barry put his inaugural address on an ipod and presented it to the Queen of England

It's A Biology Class

This is such a wonderful story; so good I couldn't make it up. There's an abortion clinic in Philadelphia where the workers have perfected the art of taking live, newly born babies then cutting their spinal cords. It's like what we did in Mr. Harris's high school biology class except we did it on tree frogs.

Jay Leno's Wife Looking For Her Brain

Mavis Leno is the wife of Jay. This is her statement. "The Koran is more liberal toward women than the Bible. I kid you not. What is it with these Hollywood types?

Why Is It

Let me pick Target Stores as the focal point of my theory. Why is it when you go to Target that one item you want is located five football fields away from the entrance? The same goes for a half gallon of milk. Childrens toys, kleenex, greeting cards and hair pins fall into the same category. I truly believe Target has a hidden phone in our house so when I leave home they quickly change the look on the store.
I read a story a few months ago saying if cigarettes are so bad for you why is it they are all directly behind the Walgreen cashier but arthritic and diabetes supplies along with walkers, wheelchairs and pills are in that part of the store furthest from where we enter?
Why is it Alec Baldwin can go down to the Occupy Wall Street vermin to offer his support then do television commercials for Capital One banks without knowing he a dork o' goof?
Why is it when your gas tank is under the empty logo you are without cash or a credit card but when you have em' all the tank is filled to the brim?
Why is it when you tell yourself how lucky you are because you haven't had a cold in over year you get one the next day?
Why is it when you convince yourself you're in great shape you put on your best Dockers and struggle to get them buttoned?
Why is it when you come into some extra cash a tire goes flat?
I have no answers.

You're Not As Screwed Up As You Thought

Did you ever play a game of Monopoly with your boyfriend/girlfriend then stab them with a knife after you accused them of cheating? Laura Chavez did. Now she's one screwed up person. If the game had involved Col. Mustard in the ballroom with a knife it would have been understable.

Bitch Power

The most recent cover of Time magazine praising the most corrupt former First Lady in American history. This is the same She-troll who last week proclaimed about Gaddafi, "We came, we saw, he's dead", then did her infamous cackle.

We Are Dufusesssssssssssssss

I wasn't a very good student in high school or college. The reason for this is, unless I was passionate about a subject, I blew it off and was happy to take a C-, even some kind of D. Let's be honest, the real reason I went to college was to play sports. There were three college teachers at Coe in Cedar Rapids who got me excited about the subject matter: Dr. Goellner was my anatomy instructor. He was funny and brought the subject matter to life. We had skeletons and actual brains from some donor. It's too bad they had to be wasted on me. Dr. Settles taught Religions of Mankind. Interesting stuff. The best was Dr. Lisio. His knowledge of American History was fantastic and every student vied to get into his class.
I graduated college in 1968 with a $3,000 loan debt. I'm the sort of guy who, as the days flittered by, forgot about the loan I received three years earlier. By August of 1968 I didn't have a job and I wasn't really looking for one. I kept thinking the Pittsburgh Pirates organization was going to come knocking on my door. As time went by I came to the realization that this was a fantasy land plan. Anyway, around mid-August I saw an ad in the Des Moines Register that New Hartford High School was looking for a teacher/basketball coach. I got an interview and drove the two hours to this farm town just west of Cedar Falls. The Super, Cleo McGinnis, offered me the job on the spot. I asked him why(the real reason was it was getting late in the year, I'm sure)he hired me so quickly and he said it was because I wore a suit and was fifteen minutes early for the interview.
My take home pay for the school year 1968-69 was $404.12 per month. If you're slow at math that's $20.03 per day. It's funny how we forget debt. It's no wonder I did. I had the '68 Pontiac GTO to make monthly payments on and there were many beers to drink while I tried to impress the ladies. The "lady adventure" didn't last long. Lizzie entered my life in March of 1969.
Nine months later Lizzie and I tied the knot. It was then that I told her about the loan debt. We started the process of paying back; $50.00 per month for three years but we got the job done. Years later I found out that the greatest number of those who didn't pay were doctors and lawyers. The bastards!
This brings us to today. Barack H. Obama was in Colorado yesterday speaking to some college students someplace. If he was smart he'd have gone to the U. of Colorado in Boulder. It's loaded with communist types like him. His biggest cheer was received when he told the 'kids' that the government was going to reduce their loan debt. HOORAY, they cheered. I've enclosed an attachment from the Atlantic Monthly, hardly a conservative site, saying that their monthly debt will be reduced by between $4 and $8 dollars. Eight stinking dollars a month. Oh, how wonderful 'The Leader' can be in times of economic turmoil.
Furthermore, the debt limit will be reduced from 25 years to 20 years. Do you understand this? If twenty years goes by and you haven't paid off your loan it will be forgiven. Why would anyone in there right mind give the loaner anything at all? The big exception to this would be that it's on your credit rating forever---if you live that long. By that time maybe you can get an alias. Obama did it with his Social Security #. Do you know what this student loan default boils down to? Lizzie and I are Dufusesssssessss of the highest order.

MJH: "I've Seen The Light. I'm A OWS Supporter"

Let's riot in the streets. I'm after all those money grubbing, scum sucking capitalists who take, take, take but never give, give, give. This country SUCKS!
I've done my research into what these rat bastard CEO's are doing to the little man.
Check it out:
Ray Irani-Occidental Petroleum-$52.2 million a year
Robtert Iger-Disney-$20.8
Sam Palmisano-International Business Machine-$20.1
Wm. Weldon-Johnson and Johnson-$19.8
Jay Fishman-Travelers Ins.-$19.5
Randall Stevenson-AT&T-$19.4
Robt. Stevenson-LockheedMartin-$19.0
Miles White-Abbott Labs-$18.8
John Stumpf-Wells Fargo-$18.7
James McNerney-$16.8
I want all of you to look at these figures and contemplate the future. It's disgusting. We should cut off their heads and pass out their wealth.

And, I'd like to make a comparison. I found out the total compensation for our top twenty illustrious Hollywood stars for monies in 2010. It doesn't matter to me what they make because they do so much good for our nation and the world. E.g. They have done or do AID's Walks, get on television and tell us how we should supply cash for hungry people in Africa. They go to fund raisers and give money for politicians. Why, just this past week, a slew of them attended a fund raiser for Barack Obama and it was only $36 thou and change to get in. Great people.

I'm going to post these valuable 'worth numbers' and a couple of them might exceed the CEO's list but that doesn't make a difference because celebs do so much good in the world. For instance, there aren't many of us common folk who could serenade Bill Clinton with a rendition of Happy Birthday the way Lady Gaga did a few days back.

1.Oprah Winfrey, $315 million
2. James Cameron, $210 million
3. Tyler Perry, $125 million
4. Michael Bay, $120 million
5. Tiger Woods, $105 million
6. Jerry Bruckheimer, $100 million
7. Steven Spielberg, $100 million
8. George Lucas, $95 million
9. Beyoncé, $87 million
10. Dr. Phil, $80 million
11. Simon Cowell, $80 million
12. Jerry Seinfeld, $75 million
13.Britney Spears, $64 million
14. Lady Gaga, $62 million
15. Madonna, $58 million
16. Sandra Bullock, $56 million
17. Ellen DeGeneres, $55 million
18. Miley Cyrus, $48 million
19.Taylor Swift, $45 million
20. Judge Judy Sheindlin, $45 million

You'll notice I only had one sports figure on the list. If you look closely you might ask yourself this question, "Why are there so many Far Left libs in the bottom category? If you were smart you'd ask yourself another question, "Why are there so many Democrats in the CEO category?

I lied to you. I'm not joining the OWS crowd; too many fags and pervs, druggies and rapists, atheists and communists. Good Gosh, I love this column. It's the last bastion of sanity were a person can write 'fag' and not have to go to jail or be sued.

Islamic Students Attending Catholic Univ. In Washington D.C. Sue

This is a very confusing story---but it's the truth. There are Islamists attending Catholic University. It is a Catholic school. These students say they like the school but feel their rights are being denied. They were given a private room to say their five times daily prayers but that wasn't good enough. They now want to have crucifixes and other Catholic images removed from the walls. Why not. I mean who would expect Catholics to be so insensitive in a Catholic school.

How Could This Happen

Don't think I'm a huge rock fan. The last concert I attended was with the Everly Brothers and they were a back up act. I don't remember the main-------oh yes I do. It was Simon and Art must have lost his pipes somewhere around the 1980's. But I digress. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame was in Paraquay for a concert and, gasp, fell while in his hotel room and broke(destroyed)two teeth. I wonder how he fell----or was he---pushed by someone trying to kill him. Or, was it possibly Dr. Darvon? The 63 year old rocker had two teeth implants. Did you know Liv Tyler, the actress, is his daughter. She's cute. They're estranged. Wonder why?

Casino Exec Steve Wynn Talks About Congressional Shenanigans

In an interview with Neil Cavuto(1:30) casino owner Steve Wynn talks about Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. You won't be surprised.

U.S. Border Guard Gets Two Years In Jail

A US border guard received a two year jail sentence for lifting a marijuana smuggler's arms while handuffed. The 15 year old and his group had brought in 150 pounds of grass.

Strippers Paid $2000 Per Night

It's the sign of the times in North Dakota. Due to the discovery of oil unemployment is under 3%. Williston N.D. is the epicenter of the boomtown. Workers are flocking to the community and housing is at a premium. Where there's good there's not so good. Hookers and strippers are flocking to town. There are two 'gentlemen's clubs' in town and the ladies of the evening can earn between $2,000 and $3,000 per day.

Who The Heck Is Orlando Jones?

Some dude entertainment comedian named Orlando Jones has done a tweet. It's very basic message is this: If liberals want respect they should stop listening to Aretha and kill Sarah Palin. Nice!

Congressman Lost Election: Sues

Steve Dreihous served one term in the US House of Representatives but lost his seat in the last election. He is now suing citing loss of livelihood due to the Susan B. Anthony Group. They are pro-life and supported his opponent. Surprisingly, a federal judge has allowed the suit to go forward. Wait, the federal judge is an Obama appointee and previously served as the chairman of Planned Parenthood.

Irritating Situations

According to a Quinnipiac pol taken yesterday it looks as though the unions are going to keep their partial collective bargaining rights in Ohio. The poll has the union guys up by 25 points. It's mind boggling. First, I haven't seen any good ads from the Republican side as to why our governor's executive order shouldn't be maintained. If you are unfamiliar with this bill think Wisconsin. On the other side there's a TV commercial playing showing a "cute as a button" young teacher convincing the voters why she needs the governor's bill overturned. For example, she says "we need better schools. We will be able to buy books and school supplies. We care about the kids". If she was truly honest she'd tell us the real reason she wants the law overturned; John Q. Public can pay her health insurance and pensions in addition to our own. It's apparent the public workers don't want to pay their fare share.
Ol' MJ was coming home from a doctor's appointment this afternoon and pulled up behind a stopped school bus. Three small critters got out. The bus then proceeded to go one half block and repeat the same scenario. Two hundred yards later and frustration begins to set in because the bus stops again. It had not complete it's task; one more stop in one hundred yards. Four stops by a school bus in slightly over one city block. If I was the kid who was at the last stop I'd say, "the hell with this noise" and remove myself at the initial stop point. It's no wonder kids have calf muscles the size of straws. They don't walk anywhere.

A Tale Of Two Women

One of the leaders fighting the Obamacare bill is Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi. You knew it, didn't you. She's a conservative republican. Why do republican woman all look like they were homecoming queens at the Univ. of Alabama? As for Ms. Bondi; pretty snazzy for 46 years old. Tell me one lib female in politics who doesn't look like last week's dog pile. Go ahead, call me a sexist. I can accept it. What I can't accept is Rosa DeLauro. She's a far-left dem from Connecticut. You didn't need me to tell you that. Have you heard what her new proposal is? She's promoting a Diaper Bill. This would provide $100 a month to mothers who have their kiddies in day care. Mrs. DeLauro should wear the diapers where appropriate; over her face. Pooh on her.

Too Many Lies To Count

The Hill [Washington DC], by Kevin Bogardus
President Obama’s reelection campaign has hired a former lobbyist to serve as a senior adviser to the 2012 team. The Obama campaign announced Monday the hiring of Broderick Johnson, a veteran of the Clinton White House and Sen. John Kerry’s (D-Mass.) 2004 presidential campaign. Obama positioned himself as an enemy of K Street and special interests during his first presidential campaign. He repeatedly vowed that lobbyists would not run his White House and refused to accept campaign contributions from registered lobbyists.

The Cackling Shrew

I began watching and reading biographies on Hillary Clinton prior to the election of 1992. My library contains six of these books. When one is critical of her that might be a vendetta. When all six expose her for being corrupt and evil it's noteworthy. She is manipulative and is a step ahead of Satan. She was involved in a variety of get rich quick schemes and should have been sent to federal prison.
If you want to know what a real person is about look at the small things. I want you all to take a look at a 15 second peek at a video showing Hillary as she hears the news of Gaddafi's death. It is absolutely deplorable. What happened to decorum. I want you also to remember how she loudly proclaimed to the world the capture of Saddam Hussein was an unnecessary think. Also, you might recall that the Iraqi government gave Hussein a trial before he was executed. Hillary Clinton is a pig; literally and figuratively.

Leaving Iraq

One thing the government has going for it is it's people don't know history. Did ya' read that the Bamster is bringing the troops home from Iraq----and just in time for the election of 2012. What a coincidence! I think the prez is following in the footsteps of his predecessors who, quick like bunnies, got the soldiers out of Germany, Japan and South Korea. Oops! They didn't? Never mind.
Let's try and forget about Viet Nam and the Pol Pot regime, though. Folks, it could be a real blood bath. Not to fret. There's always a good way to spin, especially with this administration.

It IS A Dictatorship

Not being able to get his $500 million dollar piece of garbage through congress The One is going to skirt congress and put through initiatives on his own. The 'checks and balances' of the system will kick in soon enough. I call this gambit, "The big backfire".

Karzai: Afghanistan Would Support Pakistan in a War With U.S.

How long will we continue to be idiots? If Karzai hasn't made us look goofy enough he never will. A few words about the leader of Afghanistan's statement: "We're haulin' ass outta this God forsaken country pronto!

It's Great Being An Illinois Lobbyist For Teacher's Unions

If you don't think Illinois is corrupt then think again. Two lobbyists for the teacher's union subbed teaching for one day. For this they received $93. But wait, the good stuff is that they got to add this one day to their 20 some years as lobbyists. They make nearly $250 large in their jobs. Their pension. It will come to $108 grand a year. Some days it doesn't seem right I'm not a crook and a thug.

Islam Is The Wave Of The Future

Surely when the Obama administration became overjoyed by the 'Arab Spring' they had to know there would be no democratic movement in Africa. Maybe he wanted it this way. After all, the now croaked Gaddafi called Barry his brother. The new government of Libya has declared Sharia Law will be the norm; an eye for an eye and all that jazz.

Col. Gaddafi May Have Gotten One Thing Right: Aisha

Suppoosedly, a 17 year old is the one who pulled the trigger on Aisha's daddy. She received the news when one of the assassin's answered Gaddafi's phone call from her just moments after he was terminated.

People Who Could Give A ****

Gangs In The Military

The FBI reports that members of 53 gangs from 100 regions of the country have infiltrated every branch of the Armed Forces.

Looking At Ms. Goodbar

Once in awhile normal people will catch a glimpse of a fashion show in New York or Paris and ask themselves, "who on this planet would wear that"? It might be a hat that looks like a halo but it's attached to a wire three feet above the models skull. On other occasions it could be a dress that might worn on planet Mars circa 300,000 A.D.
Regardless, why would someone make a skirt out of chocolate? This is what you are seeing in the picture. Who would wear it? The only time I want to see this on a "good looking" woman would be in the summertime in Scottsdale. The way this slice of Mr. Goodbar is attached in the photo this chick is in big trouble. Ridiculous, ain't it.

Rapture Pt. II--Wrong Again

One of these days Harold Camping or his followers are going to get it right. Yesterday, without hardly any fan fare came and went without a fuss. Jay Leno and Conan didn't make a joke. And here I am drinking coffee and thanking the Lord I'm still around. Okay, think what would happen if Billy Graham or the Pope came out and said that the world would end in X days. Now that would be a story.

It's Great To Be An Iowa Boy

I get a big kick out of people. In twenty years of traveling around various states I've come across some beauts. Years ago, before GPS, I was going to make a call on a Sunoco refinery in southern Ohio. That evening I pulled into a Holiday Inn for a night's rest then got up early the next morning. I had a vague idea that the refinery was close by. In making conversation with the desk clerk I mindlessly asked if she knew where Sunoco was located. Her answer: "Uh, don't know". Well, I was a little nervous so I got in my car and started driving all the while hoping I had the correct location. I actually drove three whole miles when I saw the Sunoco plant. Ray Charles couldn't have missed it. Had that woman been living in crater her entire life?
Today, I went to downtown Columbus to take advantage of early voting. There were a bevy of elderly ladies acting as helpers. It so happened I was wearing my Iowa Hawkeye stocking cap. One of the gals asked, "Iowa, is that near Idaho"? I'm not kidding on this. I would have been flabbergsted but it's happened before. But wait, it gets better. Another lady chimed in, "Is there a lot of snow in Iowa"? Me, being a smart ass saw the door opened so it was now my cue to get silly. "Tons and tons. They get as much snow as people in Alaska", I said. "And the cold. It's like being on Mt. Everest". Then she innocently asked me, "Do they have highway equipment to keep the roads clear"? Aha! I saw my chance. "Well", I answered, "Up until five years ago the DOT had to use horses and wagons but then the internal combustion came to the state and snow isn't really a problem anymore". Of course, they said something like, "Ah pshaw" then chuckled. I waved good-bye and told them I'd see them in church. That's a good 'leave 'em happy' response.
Call me pompous or whatever you wish but I'm telling you Iowans might be considered hicks throughout parts of the country east of Indiana but if there was a refinery three miles east of Boone a three year old would know it. What in the world do they teach in schools these days?

'IHOP Al' Rips Capitalism

As you might suspect Gore is supporting the OWS Movement. He rips capitalism and calls for reforms. This is hilarious considering he's ripped people off for years with his investment ideas. If you've read the earlier post about Fisker Automotive cars being built in Finland you should know he's an investor in that company. After looking at his picture it is also apparent his major stock investment is IHOP.

I Can't Count

All I've heard from the administration and the media regarding Obama's job bill is, "the Republicans shut down the bill". I always thought there were 100 senators and, at present, 52 were slugs, er, democrats. Okay, 52 vs. 48 means a majority. So, who were the people who voted against the jobs bill? Do ya' think they might have been dems who are in danger of losing their senate seats in the next election?

And We Were Told Sarah Palin Was Stupid

Jonah Goldberg has written a reminder column in the National Review of how ridiculous our vice-President can be. I'm wrong. How ridiculous he is. This is one thing Mr. Goldberg has to say as an illustration when speaking of Biden.

"As you know, the current vice president says dumb things, funny things, weird things. He talks like the sort of guy who sits right next to you on the bus even though there are plenty of empty seats — just so he can explain how squirrels aren’t mammals."

From my perspective I can't think of outrageously insensitive comments from Ms. Palin. For those of you with short memories she did not say, "I can see Alaska from my front porch". It was a SNL skit. Typically, a liberal would come back with, "well, it sounds like something she would say".

Joe Biden, on the other hand, is the quintessential democrat politician. The brain power of, well, a squirrel.

I happened to read an article from this morning's Washington Post. People, WaPo is a friend and protector of this corrupt administration. The Post took Biden to task for his ridiculous and inflated claims about murder and rape in Flint, Michigan and by not passing a portion of the 'Job's Bill' these crimes would rise. i.e. Republicans support rape and murder. The Washington Post story is here.

A Movie Review: The Ides Of March

Lizzie and I broke our Friday pattern of attending the movies. We went on a Thursday. I broke down and paid my $4.50 to see a movie produced by George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio. My conscience was bothering me. I could've spent my money more wisely by flushing it down the toilet. Clooney also starred in the film as a governor looking to become president. The movie takes place in Cincinnati and shows the inside and outs of a primary election. I can sum this up in short order. It was a very good film. Every politician and political operative were slime; looking out for their own personal agenda. It's as one might picture politicians: buffalo scat!

Electric Car Mfgr. Gets Gov't Loan: Will Build Cars In Finland

"Hurry, hurry, hurry, get your money from Uncle Sam". Does that read like something a sideshow barker would shout? The sideshow barker, in this case, is the Obama government. They have give a loan of $529 million to an electric car maker to build their vehicles in Finland. The auto co., Fisker, said they couldn't find an appropriate facility to build their product in the US. Two items here: (1)for the number of cars of this type to be sold they could use a phone booth and (2) drive around Detroit and Cleveland and look at the the number of vacant auto buildings.

Joe Biden Pushes Jobs Bill On 4th Graders

How embarrassing it must be to be the wife, child, relative, etc. of Joe Biden. As he would say, "Gimme a break". Our Emmett Kelley type vice-President spoke to a group of 4th graders on why the foolish jobs bill should be passed. Think about it. He warned a group of 4th graders that they wouldn't have teachers if the mean ol' Republicans did't pass a tax bill. I have grandchildren who's greatest fear in life is they won't be able to watch Phineas and Ferb and he's trying to convince these children about money and taxes. Furthermore, I want to write--------oh hell-----you watch it on YouTube.

Death Threat On Bobby Schilling

Rep. Bobby Schilling(R-Ill) received a threat on his life yesterday. It was via a computer email and was allegedly sent from California. Whoever did this is in need of a cranial examination.
Congressman Schilling was one of my better history students out Alleman High School in Rock Island. Furthermore, Bobby, as a wide receiver, could throw one of the best crack back blocks known to high school football. Whoever sent this email had better get set for an ass whoopin'. As we used to tell our boys before we took the field, "it's time to get a mean on" and Bobby could get that 'mean on' better than most.

An Iowa Love Story

It could have happened anywhere but it didn't. It took place in Iowa. Believe it or not Iowans do cling to their guns and bibles. They also cling to each other and to marriage. I remember when Paul Harvey had his radio show. He always ended with a salute to couples who were "on the road to eternity" or something like that. He gave tribute to couples who had been married well over fifty years. It seemed like they were always from Iowa or Nebraska.
This is a story of a couple who died within and hour of each other. They were holding hands when they went with each other to their eternity after seventy-two years of being together. Tragically, the husband had pulled out in from of another vehicle and the resulting deaths were due to the accident. Folks, this is an honest to God love story.

The Richest City In The United States

For some of you the following information might be difficult to believe. For me, it isn't. Care to guess the richest city in the US based on median income? Think about it for a moment. Think about OCW and Greece. Consider public jobs and jobs in the private sector. All of our politicians bloviate about sending jobs overseas and free trade and bringing jobs back to the United States. What a bunch of hooey. The wealthiest city in this country is the Metro area of Washington, D.C. The median income of the 'City of Liars' is $84,523 whereas the average for the nation is $$50,046. What the hey! It was only a few days ago that Harry Reid told us public jobs were more important that jobs in the private sector.

Planning For The Day

The headline of this blog is as exciting as it's going to get all day long. We in Dublin Ohio are on the tail end of a 500 mile long rain of two days. Why, it's only been raining here since Noah was in diapers. With no sun and being pelted by rain drops Lizzie suggested we go to a movie. She's into Jason Stratham. This surprises me. He's a character who kills people without impunity. That's not Lizzie's style. She was and probably still is in love with Colin Firth when he did 'The Pride and the Prejudice'. His name in it was Mr. Darcy. It just has well could have been Mr. Wussy.
At any rate, Stratham seems to be the guy unless we check out Steve Martin's new flick.
I've developed a craving, no, a passion for a new television show. It comes on Thursday night and it's called "Revenge'. I never watched 'Dallas' from years ago but Lizzie thinks there are some similarities. It's(Revenge) about a girl in her twenties who seeks revenge from people who caused her father's demise when she was around five years old and it left her an orphan. The story takes place in The Hamptons so you know the the characters are 'beautiful' people. Each week the lead character, Amanda, seeks out those who destroyed her father by setting them up for failure, imprisonment or death. It's a little far fetched in some cases but, hey, it's a fantasy show and there are bunches of hot looking women. I'm trying to figure out how they can keep the series going. I mean, if I really, really wanted to destroy people who've been nasty to me in my life I could come up with probably six-tops! I suspect when TV people make a series they'd like to have the show run longer than six times. It'll be interesting to see what happens.
Oh-oh! Lizzie, minutes ago, informed me it wasn't a Stratham type of day. Looks like I'll be sitting through a Ravel's, "Bolero" type of film.
The Queen and I are in the early stages of planning our winter trips, all taken as far south of the Mason-Dixon Line as possible. It's exciting to do this. The bad aspect is it never turns out to be as much fun as we initially thought. I'll inform you of our plans in later columns but as for right now there's thousands of miles to be driven IN A CAR. Driving doesn't seem like much when it's in your thoughts because the miles flit by. It's almost like you're in a Star Trek transporter. In reality, when doing it, a bullet to the head seems necessary and proper.
Enough for today. I hope the sun shines in Dublin before Dec. 31.

Joe Biden: "If Obama Bill Doesn't Pass Rapes Will Rise"

It is indeed a sad situation when the administration, looking for cover, has to send it's Court Jester in Chief out on the circuit. In speaking about crime and rapes in particular JB makes a fool of himself by attacking Republicans for being responsible for the rise in crime. "Hey Joe, put that finger in my chest and I'll bite it off"! Look up the words, 'pompous ass' in Webster's and his picture shows up.

Is This The Same As "It Takes A Village"?

( - First Lady Michelle Obama said yesterday that the government can affect who kids “will be forever” if it can shape their "habits and preferences" during the large part of the day they are at school.

An important aspect of being a grandfather is I have plenty of time on my hands to read this clap trap and forward it to my children. The least I can do is warn them about communists in our government and schools. Now, I'm as open minded as the next guy but if a First Lady, Secretary of State or any teacher from grades K-college spouts nonsense it is my duty to raise hell or die trying. Thank you and Amen.

Forget Iran. Let's Kick Uganda's Ass

This 'N That

My neighbor and good friend is a lawyer. He uses a typewriter to fill in legal documents. After twenty years it went kaput so he starting searching typewriter repair facilities in the Columbus, Ohio area(pop.1,500,000). You can imagine this isn't like living in Stanhope, Iowa looking for the same. Why, if you lived in Stanhope you'd have to drive all the way to Des Moines, Iowa to get the job done. That'd be a round trip of 110 miles. Well, it's raining today and my buddy had some legal responsibilities so I offered to take the typewriter to the repair shop. This is a sign of the times but I had to drive to Lancaster, Ohio; a round trip drive of 110 miles.
On the drive down I listened to news reports out of Zanesville, Ohio. It seems a guy committed suicide but before he did he released from his yard 56 exotic animals. He doesn't run a zoo. It's not against the law to have animals for public display so I guess you might say he was an IDIOT!. Of these animals most were Bengal tigers, grizzly bears, cheetahs, monkeys. timber wolves and, oh yes, mountain lions. Since Zanesville is approximately fifty miles from my front door I took interest in the story. The normal reaction would be to get these animals before they parked themselves at a school bus stop. As of right now, forty-eight of the animals have been shot dead. Three are unaccounted for, a grizzly, a monkey and one mountain lion (--news reports say now state six of the animals survived and were transported to the Columbus Zoo). Actually, since we've moved here I've learned there are a number of these places around the state. Ohioans can be weird. My big question is, How do they afford to feed these animals? It's not like putting out a can of tuna for Felix the Cat.

What goes around comes around. I was sort of excited to hear that social security benefits would be going up 3.6%. My excitement was tempered when I found out Medicare Part B goes up next week.

Lizzie and I discovered a new route from Kansas City to Columbus thus avoiding the dreaded I-70 through St. Louis. The new and improved highway is a four laner all the way and with minimal traffic from north central Missouri then east to Hannibal, Missouri to Champaign, Illinois. On the way we traveled past Springfield, Illinois. It's the final resting stop for Abe Lincoln and we decided to visit his home where he and the family lived prior to his living in the White House. Lincoln is my very favorite president. His life was filled with disappointments that would have destroyed most men. He had political failures, a nut case for a wife and lost three of his four beloved sons to illness. The home is as I remembered the last time I visited in 1956. It made an indelible impression on me then and I remembered nearly every aspect of the tour. In addition, we toured the Lincoln Museum. It's a new facility. If you've never been there please go. Standing and reading, looking and feeling greatness sends chills down my spine. I wouldn't feel this way about William McKinley or US Grant. Why, I wouldn't even feel this way about Bill Clinton. One thing I emphasized in my classroom teaching to my students was the aging process of Lincoln from 1860 to his death. All presidents age while in office. Even 'The Emperor' has shown this in what seems like his five hundred year term in office. Also, I realize that Lincoln suffered from what was probably Marfan's Syndrome(look it up. I can't do everything for you.) which would most likely sped up the aging process. I did your legwork and included two photos of Lincoln; one from 1860 and the other taken in 1864. Aren't they dramatic?
We didn't have the time to visit Lincolns' library but it would be worth our while to visit again and if you haven't been there then go. Besides, you might learn something about your country and our greatest president(in my opinion).

A 'Thank You' From A Farmer

One picture is the landing strip at Offut AFB near Omaha. The other was done by a local farmer near the base. Using his GPS on his tractor he carves out a message for landing planes and has done it for years.

Don't Senators(D) Have Bigger Worries

Think of all the problems facing our country. In foreign and domestic policy we are in the sorriest state in my memory. And what is now the most pressing issue facing democrat Senators. Yes, it's tobacco usage by baseball players. Leading the charge is Dick 'Squirt' Durbin(Ill), Frank 'Mummy' Lautenberg(NJ), Dick 'Vet Liar' Blumenthal(Conn) and Tom 'Abortion King'(Iowa). This is so sad. People are looking for jobs(except the OWS crowd) and all they can come up with is tobacco, which they vote to subsidize. If you vote liberal your stupid is showing.

Stop The Windmills!

Associated Press:
LILLY, Pa. — "Thirty-five windmills at a western Pennsylvania wind farm have been silenced at night since a bat that belongs to an endangered species was found dead under one of the turbines. The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown is reporting the farm shut down the windmills overnight after the Indiana bat was found Sept. 26. The farm in question was built by Gamesa Energy USA and covers parts of Portage, Washington, and Cresson Townships in Cambria County, and part of Blair County, about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh".

Dang! And I was going to erect four of these monsters in my yard.

George Will: OWS Is To The Tea Party What Pittsburgh Kansas Is To Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

George Will is wise. He is a level headed thinker, too. In speaking of the Wall Street crowd he says 'let 'em do their thing'. Combined, he says, all of the OWS clowns(my words, not his) wouldn't equal the Tea Party group in D.C. in September of '09. Take the time to read someone's list of demands; a minimum wage of $20 to begin any job. Har-de Har-Har!

I Repeat: "These Guys Have Taken More Corporate Money Than Any Presidency In Twenty Years.

The White House has thrown its cards on the table. They have committed themselves to supporting the 99%, whoever the hell they are. This is a huge gamble. It might be the last 'go fish' card The Bamster has in his deck.

Poor Warren Buffett

Undecided about feeling sorry for Warren Buffett? He earned 62.8 million last year but paid only $6.9 in taxes. He has to endure those pain in the neck tax shelters. The poor man!

Ann Barnhardt: She Takes No Guff

There's a Joan of Arc running around in this country. I first came in contact with her via an Internet email. The lady recognizes the Fatwah put on everybody by Islam. She doesn't back down, either. After being threatened by a terrorist in the Middle East she sent him, via twitter, directions to her home. When she gives talks she holds a Koran, pages book marked with a strip of bacon. As you might expect some groups are afraid to have her in their presence. Check out her faith here.

Another Six Degrees Of Separation

It truly is a small, small world. The Occupy Wall Street Movement has garnered some attention from me. I happened to come across the name, Lisa Fithian. She has been attributed with starting the OWS movement in New York City. I wondered who the person was so I did the normal web search and picture thing. Turns out she's a rabble rouser from the 70's and has been involved in more than 1,000 anarchist protests. To put it bluntly, she's a trouble maker. Anyway, I came across the accompanying picture of Ms. Fithian and the ex-Father Frank Cordaro(yellow shirt). He, too, is a protesting rabble rouser. He was a priest in the Diocese of Des Moines and left the Church because he thoght priests should be able to marry, that there should never be a war and wealth should be re-distributed. He has been that way since I knew his brother beginning in 1974. His bro was my assistant basketball coach and a darned good one. Two more opposite guys in philosophy never existed. I never cease to be amazed at the number of people I've shouldered up to----sort of.

Blame Game Is Almost Over

13 Reasons A Dog Might Be Better Than Women

I find the funniest things on iOwnTheWorld. Check out these 13 reasons why. Think about 'em. I can laugh since I don't have a dog. Ha-ha!

Justice Department Goes To Bat For Muslim Teacher In US

Let's say you are a Muslim teacher in a suburban Chicago middle school. Furthermore, let's say you want time off during the school year, three weeks to be specific, to attend the Hajj(pilgrimage) to Mecca. Continuing on, the school says, "No". If it had been me I would have said, "Dang it". Not this babe. She sued. The tice DepartmentJus of the United States--you're familiar with Eric Holder, the one who said not to bring suit against African-Americans-- came to her supportive aid. She received back pay and her job back. As the article says, 'never hire a Muslim'.

Survival, Part I

Why is it a four hour driving trip from one area to another seems quicker and more interesting that a different trip involving the same time slot? I'm not talking about driving through the Mohave Desert, either. It is exactly the same distance from Dublin, Ohio to sixty miles west of Indianapolis as it is from St.Louis to Kansas City. The St. Loo trip is akin to driving through Hell, each and every day.
My Council Bluffs Cowboy friend suggested Lizzie and I get off I-70 just west of Indy and take Highway 40 west. We could drive at a slower pace and enjoy the scenery. I let him know that when I was a salesman I had driven to and through every town in Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, Kentucky and the province of Ontario Canada. I did not want a leisurely drive but what did a get? I got a leisurely drive. The interstate from Indy to Terre Haute was a massive parking lot. We were directed to Highway 40. That Cowboy guy is some kind of clairvoyant.
There's been a directional change of plans for the return trip. I'll bypass sw Indiana and take The Queen to Springfield, Illinois. She's never visited Lincoln's home and burial site. I'll come out smelling like tomorrow's flowers and I-70 will be last year's memory.

"Jobs Saved Or Created": Not Any More

Sometimes when there's an attached article it's filler for headlines. I took an article from today's Drudge that I found both informative and very funny. The White House has stopped using the "saved or created" phrase for their silly stimulus job saving programs. Instead it will now be 'job supported'. Hot shows us that a number of states did research on the number of jobs that were supposedly saved or created. It is all bogus. What a bunch of losers and liars. It is hilarious.

Obama's 4th War

The United States, two days ago, sent 100 combat ready troops to Uganda. Obama said they would be used in an advisory role. Libya: "days not months".

Mr. Big Plays The Race Card

He's worn out and desperate. Speaking to a group of Latinos Obama plays the race card.

One More Reason 'We're Screwed'

The federal government is ordering election ballots-----but not in English.

Hang In There

If anyone or a gang of anyone's want to steal things Lizzie and I are leaving for Kansas City at noon today. It's time to visit with Eve, Tommy and Addie. Realistically visiting with Addie would be difficult to accomplish. She's only ten months old. I have to get psyched for Lego's cuz that's what Tommy does. I don't care for Lego's. I'm not creative. Usually I stack them. Eve is reading up a storm; just finished the Little House On The Prairie books. That's not bad considering she'll be seven in November. You silly people. I'm bragging.
The point of this "nothing" blog is, don't expect much. Hang in there with me until I get back. I know there will be adventures. Remember this: I have to drive I-70 from St. Louis to Kansas City. It's a death zone on that concrete strip.

Super Solyndra II

George Miller III is an uber liberal congressman from,where else, California. His son, George Miller IV is a lobbyist for a firm called SunPower. They make solar panels the same way Solyndra did. Guess what? SunPower received a 1.2 billion dollar grant from Obama Country. It gets better. The panels will be made in Mexico. Is this nitkicking? Not really since SunPower is in the same legal jam as Solyndra. Once again, Obama is rolling the dice with your cash and his pals are getting rich by doing it. Oh, by the way, lawyers for Solyndra received 2.4 million of taxpayer money to defend the crooks.
If the "Occupy Wall Street" crowd wanted to protest they should camp out on the doors of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Watters, George Miller----the list is endless. This administration is reminiscent of that of U.S. Grant. He tried to get along with everyone to the point that there was an open door policy in the White House for those to have ill gotten gains. It was referred to as the "Nadir of National Disgrace". The more things change the more they stay the same, or something like that.

Reacting To Iranian Assassination Plot

An alternate scenario would be that Obama needs to show the world how strong and decisive he can be. You know, the way Bill Clinton bombed an aspirin factory while the Monica hearings were taking place. I'm not sure Barry has ever made a decision in his life dating back to dating the She-woman. Can you hear it now, "We're getting married, BO, so I can hound and belittle you for the rest of your sorry ass life"


Hey, Gang! We're sitting exactly on 35,000 page views @ 6:40 PM EDT. That's significant because we had to have 34,000 before we could get to 35,000. To Be more precise we began in October of 2008 and slugged along until October of 2010. Since then we've had 29,000 page views. Pretty neat, huh!

Where Is The Outrage

Lizzie is on the condo association and the meeting was held in our home last night. I am NOT a meeting person. I hate them. I'm not a joiner, either. The last group I belonged to was a college fraternity and those meetings were tedious. Before that it was the Cub Scouts and the only reasons I joined was all my classmates belonged plus I thought the uni's were neat.
At any rate, while the four hour condo meeting was going on I slid into the man cave. At 9pm I watched a rerun of The Closer and at 10 the new show called Unforgettable. What struck me was that both shows were essentially about the same thing:Black and Latino crooks and murderers. Later in the evening I mentioned to Lizzie that it seems more and more TV shows have Blacks and Latinos as the bad guys. Check it out and you'll see I'm correct. So, why don't we have the Congressional Black Caucus, NAACP, La Raza, any and all minority groups raising Cain with Hollywood about the way it denigrates them? The Tea Party says nothing and is castigated as racist but the movie moguls regularly destroy the image of minorities and nothing happens. Hank Williams Jr. made an analogy about Hitler and Netanyahu, harmless to me, and he's kicked off Monday Night Football. Either the heads of minority groups are embarrassed or money talks and politicians walk.

Who Is Andy Rasch And How Did He Get Here

Wowie! What I wouldn't give to have Andy Rasch's life. And he looks good, too. The stories this guy could tell should be written down for posterity.
I think the title and post are what's called a 'tease' and a good one at that.

Why Obama Is A Failure

I've read many reports on the failure of the Obama presidency but Monty Pelerin from the American Thinker heads the list of being, in my opinion, right on target.

The NBA Holdout

I could care less if some dude on Wall Street makes gazillions of dollars a year. It is, after all, achieving the great American dream. I've written about professional athletes in previous posts. Some of these guys are making millions yearly for putting a piece of leather through a circular ring or catching and running with something called a 'football'. Kobe Bryant of the LA Lakes appears to be heading to Europe to play basketball for $5 million dollars this year. One thing that does bother me is that these guys are holding out for more cash and it isn't their fault. Why people spend exorbitant amounts of money to watch kids play games is beyond me. Maybe it's a form of penis envy. If you want to see good basketball or football attend a high school game. Go to a small college event. These fellas are good. There's a kid from my Alma mater, Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who is one of the NFL's leading ball carriers and plays for the Buffalo Bills. I get a kick out of watching my Wisconsin buddy coach football at Ripon College. He's in his sixty-sixth year but coaching keeps him young. It costs five dollars to watch his games. That's on average about two hundred dollars less than what it costs to see some bling*** wearing, surrounded by an entourage, spoiled brat do his thing.
If you want to end and NBA holdout then stop going to the games. Prices will come down and the players will have to make a decision; play or or go somewhere else.

***Speaking of which, did you catch Kanye West at the Occupy Wall Street march in support of "the people". He had enough bling around his neck to sink a battleship.

A Blast From The Past: Calorie Intake

It's rainy and yucky out today so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to research the archives. This piece comes from November of '08.

I happened to catch Dr. Isadore what's his name on Fox TV this Sunday morning. He gives sage advice on health and living longer for older people. Today he talked about fiber; something about peas, I think. I didn't realize peas were high fiber but the Dr. said we should eat more. I thought high fiber food might be shredded wheat, popcorn and hay but certainly not peas. He also said we need to exercise. That's pretty much common sense. We all exercise but only to varying degrees. Sometimes, my exercise regimen is walking to the mailbox which is all the way across the street. It's possible to live to be one hundred-twenty five or longer if we exercise properly and eat the right things, he said. The guy even profiled a lady who was 94 years old. She was lifting 3 lb. weights and riding a stationary bike.
Better yet, she had a "boy toy;" a younger kid who was only 90. They said something about Viagara but I plugged my ears; I just didn't want to go down that road, or maybe it was a case of jealousy.****
The story ended up mentioning calories and how we should restrict them. Doc Isadore made a big deal out of cutting down calories. That's a hoot. He's big boy; might have to buy his suits at a tent and awning store.The fewer the calories one consumes he says, the longer we live. Somewhere I read, and I hope I'm right on this, an average sized man should have a daily intake of 2,300 calories.
I have one of those bodies that is "horizontally directional. It goes in and out without impediment. When I get really heavy I have a chest that would make Dolly Parton jealous. Check my closet and you'll know what I mean. I have pants with waistbands that read size 32 to 40. Saving size 34 makes me a positive thinker. Keeping size 32 slacks makes me a nut job. Since 1988 my weight has ranged from 188 lbs. to 261 lbs. It's interesting about being "fat". That person doesn't know it until they lose it. Then after you've shed the pounds your better half screws up the courage to tell you, "Wow, you were really fat". Once, when I was at my biggest, greatest, largest; I happened to be in Florida and stopped into a Burger King. I ordered a cup of coffee but only because I needed to use the men's room. As soon as I did one of the female order takers handed over a five dollar bill to her female co-worker. I saw the exchange and asked what that was all about. Her response was: "we saw you come in, made a bet and I lost. I had you for two Whoppers, two fries and a large shake". I think I started laughing but I might have been crying. Eventually, thanks to my good friend, Jenny Craig, I returned to near normalcy. Why was this narrative necessary? Well Dr. Isadore said that older adults should restrict themselves to 1,200 calories a day! Is he nuts? A plate of toe nails is more than 1,200 calories a day! Actually, 1200 calories would be equivalent to nine bowls of oatmeal. I can handle that. I like oatmeal.
I hope you appreciate my PSA. That's why I'm here.

****I heard a great line on last night's NCIS(10/11/11). It came from Anthony Dinozzo in reference to women older than 'Cougars' by twenty years. "They're still young enough to hunt but too old to take down the prey" Give that writer a raise!

Obama Justice Department Awards $3 Million To Soros-Funded Pro-Illegal Immigration Group…

— The Obama Justice Department has recently awarded millions of dollars in politically-motivated grants with a chunk of the money going to community groups that help illegal immigrants, a Judicial Watch investigation has found.

Movin' Around

People sixty-five and under tend to move around. My parents and most likely yours were born, lived and died within a twenty mile area. Some of us like it that way. My dad lived in Boone, Iowa for 71 of his 74 years. The first three he was confined in a place called the Annie Wittenmeyer home in Davenport, Iowa. He was given up for adoption as a baby then found his way to Central Iowa. My mother moved to Boone in 1940 after graduating from nursing school and is there still. I can't stay in one room of my home for an hour without feeling the wander lust. Sometimes, even when I don't need to, I'll sit on the commode for a change of scenery. Check this out. I left Boone in 1964. From there I have made a residence in these Iowa towns: Cedar Rapids, New Hartford, Cedar Falls, Storm Lake, Ottumwa and Davenport. For one teaching year I commuted four hours from Davenport to Mukwonago, Wisconsin. After that it was back to Davenport. We moved to Westerville, Ohio in 1989 then to Dublin in 2008. Have I forgotten any? I don't think so but if I did it'll come to me later. Do you know what the biggest decision Lizzie and I(Oh yeah, she grew up in Des Moines and lived in Ames, Iowa)have to make. Where the heck are we going to be buried? I do want to be potted with a beautiful view; maybe near a lake. That'd be nice. I figure I'll be there for awhile. It's going to be tough not going someplace else in a few years.

Obama Wanted To Apologize For Hiroshima And Nagasaki

It's difficult to understand the thinking of our nitwit president. We now know that the clownish guy, during a trip to Japan, wanted to apologize for the dropping of the A-bomb on Japan that ended WWII. It has been estimated that a land invasion of the country would have cost the US one million casualities and 200,000 deaths. Thank God for Harry Truman. He did one good thing. Obama--he does a nice job of bowing.

How Nancy Gets Her Money

Chuck Neubauer, Washington Times:

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband, a real estate developer and investment banker, stands to make millions of dollars in a previously undisclosed residential real estate project in California as a partner with the father of a woman Mrs. Pelosi helped become ambassador to Hungary, records show. Paul F. Pelosi’s investment in Russell Ranch is worth at least $5 million and possibly as much as $25 million in a deal put together by his friend and longtime business associate, Angelo Tsakopoulos, patriarch of a multimillion-dollar real estate development firm".

This Is A Dolphin

Obama Lovin' That Wall Street Cash

One would think Obama is against Wall Street since he and his minions are supporting the class warfare mantra. It has been learned that The Emperor has taken more cash from Wall Street than any president in the past twenty years.

Russia had 30 Czars--Obama Has 45

For some reason I've been interested in Obama's "Czar Program". FDR had a similiar group called "The Brain Trust". They were unofficial advisers paid $1 a year to offer advice to the president on how best to get out of the Great Depression. Obama's group of 45 is paid Lord only knows, have who knows what kind of power and answers to I don't know. That's a nice gig if you can get it. Judicial Watch has a rather lenghty expose' on the who and what of this Czar program. If anything you'll be able to put a name on the department. The ball's in your court if you want to use it.

99% Means Failure

Why are these people parading around the streets of our cities proclaiming they are part of the 99% and proud of it? That's embarrassing. I mean, when it comes to a job or education or the ability to find decent housing and food, you're pretty much a loser if 99% is your goal. 50% is on the best of the lousiest and the lousiest of the best. That's only average. I guess that's not too awfully bad unless you happen to be happy with a grade of C. Personally, I want to be in the top 10%. Better yet, that 1% number has a nice ring to it. So when you see the crowd chanting, "we are the 99% you'll know they don't produce squat. They only want to take". And they do a fairly good job of doing it thanks to our tax money.
We learn to live with it, though. We all have family members who are members of the 99% club. They keep us grounded and sane.

Obamaism: Safer To Be A Golden-Winged Warbler Than A Human Being

The administration has released a list of 500 protected plants and animals. It's too bad humans didn't make the cut.

Creative Writing

What I wouldn't give to be creative in writing. Some folks can wake up every day, start with a word, then write a book. It's sort of like when my son was around four years old and had a pen and paper in hand. He was a drawer from the get-go. Dinosaurs held his interest for quite some time. When I was asked to draw a picture of a person I'd make a circle for the head, throw in some eyes and a mouth, two dots for the nose and polish it off with a couple of ears. Matto, the drawer, would make a small line, a crease for the nose, then work his way out to complete the person. That is creative drawing.
Two days ago I was on the 15th hole at my golf club and was approaching the green. There's a pond on the right side of the hole and it's filled with fish and frogs. On the grass in front of the green was a very large frog. I'm not a biology major so let's call it a bullfrog. One of the guys said, "Is it alive"? One way to find out was for me to take my pitching wedge, put it underneath and flip it in the air. Since it didn't croak or move I surmised it was in the big pond in the sky. If I were a creative writer I could write an entire novel about 'Froggy'. Tex Ritter made millions of dollars when he sang, "Froggy went a courtin" so why couldn't I do the same on paper? I could tell the story of how it sacrificed for it's tadpole children and how they were left a legacy to carry on. Maybe 'it' threw itself at the feet of one of the heron's in the pond; an act of heroism for certain.
I should have been a writer for 'Seinfeld'. Stories about nothing are in my repertoire

Age Test:

You'd have to be very knowledgeable or over the age of 55 to know.

October Revolution

Ol' MJ doesn't normally overreact to news articles. Afterall, writers are trying to make a anme for themselves. I read an article in the Washington Times yesterday that sent shivers up and down my spine. It detailed now, with the help of the Obama administration, we are facing an October Revolution; one that is patterned after communist/socialist revolutions of past history.

"Holy Crap! I was right"

Recently I wrote a blog on the make-up of the putrid pile of human debris in NYC. Reference was made to people doing number two in the streets. Well, little did I know(I actually did) that this type of behavior from our 'youngest and brightest' was taking place. I present to you a photo and article by clicking here of a person(?) decacating on a New York City police car. Unless I'm mistaken 'it' is not a member of the TEA Party. It is possible, no, more than likely 'it' is on drugs or drunk or both. In this case 'it' has a good excuse. 'It' needs therapy provided by our tax dollars to take care of 'its' problem.

Friday Afternoon Fun Follies

Make-up Of 'Occupy Wall Street'

Getting specific, take a look at who composes 'Occupy Wall Street'. They are the usual suspects; in addition to ACORN and SEIU join in on the quiz. Did you happen to see the non-English speaking Hispanics in the District of Columbia carrying signs in English. Their benefactor was standing with them. If you are a liberal and don't know the meaning of 'benefactor' he was the guy paying them for standing around looking goofy and not knowing the purpose of their actions.

No Wonder Americans Talk Funny

A few years ago at one of my company sales meetings I was giving a presentation to our regional sales managers from around the world. One of the guys was from France and kept giving me a quizzical look or kept asking me to explain what I meant. He kept throwing me the 'whassup' look. So, in my mind I'm telling myself, "this moron needs to go back to school". Upon further discussion over a beer we 'got down to brass tacks' and resolved the problem. He could understand about every fifth word I used because I spoke in slang. I'd never thought of this before. Now, I know this takes place in different parts of the country; pronunciations and words used, but surely this doesn't apply to me. If I recorded myself I might be surprised at what I say and how I say it. Last evening while watching one of my new fav's; 'Free Agents' the lead actor, Hank Azaria, responded to a statement with, "this ain't my first rodeo". Meaning, 'I'm not stupid'. In recent weeks I've heard this phrase numerous times, mostly on television. So, get set because I believe we'll be hearing it a bunch. Slang phrases in America are sometimes over the top and slammed down our throats so much so that, well, 'Yadda, yadda, yadda, you know what I mean. Just for fun I've added included a----dang!----I forget what I want to call it---click here, though, and you'll see some more phrases, "if ya' know what I mean".

What If Steve Jobs Mother Had-----

An original idea came to me today. Steve Jobs was adopted. His mother put him up for adoption because her parents did not want her to marry a Syrian. HIs parents(he considered them not adoptive) nurtured his enthusiasm for electronics. What if his birth mother had decided on abortion. Where would we be today? You can't say someone else would have come along and invented. We've gone down that road with Al Gore.
I'm sure the pro-death crowd would say, "think how many Hitler's there would be without abortion". Easy answer to that one. Execute those scummers but allow the producers the opportunity to keep on keepin' on.
