Mr. Egotist Speaks About Foreign Policy

After President Obama delivered remarks on Libya this morning from the White House--and before his planned trip to Las Vegas--he visited the State Department to deliver more personal and more private remarks. He wanted to offer encouragement after four State Department workers were murdered yesterday in Libya.
A State Department official described the event to the White House pooler.
"Obama spoke for about 15 minutes to a large crowd gathered in the courtyard in the middle of the State Department Building. There were at least a couple of hundred people gathered for the president's remarks, some people watching from the windows," according to the pooler.
He talked about how important the foreign service is and what a great job it does representing the U.S. abroad. He also had a line about how he understands the value of the foreign service because he spent so much time as a kid growing up abroad.
We do know that he spent time in Indonesia in Muslim schools and that he ate some snake and dog. And when he was in college he did visit Pakistan. How he got there and who paid for it is still a mystery. Add in the equation that, at the time he went, it was forbidden by our government. Someone get him a straight jacket. Four guys are murdered and he comforts them with stories of being a man-child in southeast Asia. His classmates may have called him "the turd from turdville".

The Cover-Up Begins

The attack on Americans in the Middle East wasn't about a movie, after all. They were coordinated to coincide with 9/11. The Center for Mid-East Affairs and the Detroit Free Press have stated that they were aware that something big was going to happen yesterday. The White House, along with Hillary, apologized then thanked the Libyan government for trying to get our people to safety. They got them to safety alright and then they informed the terrorists where they could be found. If the Free Press was privy to this information then the current administration had to be informed also. This is an act of war. What we heard from Hillary is the same old shrill shriek, "I'm shocked". What we heard from Obama was, "the perpetrators, with the help of the Libyan government, will bring these criminals to justice". Isn't that what Clinton said after the U.S.S. Cole was attacked? One would think that every 9/11 would cause increased security to take place in every embassy and consulate around the world. It's time to bring up Ann Coulter's famous quote again, "For liberals, history begins when they get out of bed in the morning".


8:46 AM EDT is a significant day in America's history especially when it's on 9/11. Every single television station in America paid homage to the dead lost on that day because it was at that time that the first of the terrorist airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center. Did I write every television station? Let me correct myself. NBC ran another tribute. They interviewed Kim Kardashian Jenner and the focus of that newsworthy event was to talk about her breast implants. NBC should be boycotted by every sponsor and viewer. The real boob(s) happen to be NBC

Our Nation Is Disintegrating

September 12, 2012: Maybe it's a good thing that my computer is in the shop for repair and in order to vent a trip to the library is a mandatory. I made a quick trip out to Kansas on Saturday and returned yesterday. I'm fuming. Our state department officials are being murdered and our embassies attacked. An embassy located on foreign soil is the same as being in the USA. It's despicable. And what does our great leader do about it? He apologizes to the Muslim Brotherhood. He threw Hosni Mubarak under the bus and supported this group of anti-American terrorists. This was all precipitated because some ultra-right wing whack job religious leader from Florida made a movie about Mohammed. I listened to tapes from the film on my car radio. It sounds like something Harry Nicholson, Dick Musser and I would have put together for a 10th grade high school English class. A Coptic Christian in Egypt put it on Facebook and the murdering terrorists felt the need to attack embassy. Then Obama felt it necessary to exert world leadership and sent an apology to these camel jockeys. After that the violence spread to Libya. Tunisia then Libya instigated in the Arab Spring movement and now we have at least four dead State Department officials. In addition, Obama canceled a meeting with Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, because he was too busy to fit him in on his schedule. He wasn't too busy to campaign and schedule an appearance on an upcoming Letterman Show. As long as we're on the subject of being inept, what was the deal with Biden at Shanksville, Pennsylvania giving a tribute to the 9/11 dead? He called it a 'bittersweet' moment. What the hell was 'sweet' about that day? We're being run by idiots. And the worst is yet to come, I believe. John Thune, senator from South Dakota was on Fox last night telling us Moody's is probably going to downgrade our credit rating. Folks, hang onto you hats and get down on your knees and pray. The world is imploding right before our eyes.

Bill's Infidelity

There's a new book out on Bill and Hillary as if we needed another one. This one is written by a man named William Chafe. That's not the interesting part. It was panned by the Washington Post book critic, Jonathan Yardly. His summation is that their marriage has been more productive and functional due to Bill's sexual escapades.
I try to personalize as much as possible so I started thinking about Lizzie and my almost 43 year marriage. Let's give this a shot. I come home and let the Queen know I'm going to do some hanky panky with a couple of the widow ladies up the street. That's it, no more examples. I can come back with two scenarios: 1) Lizzie does own a frying pan and with the proper technique of a Major League baseball player throwing a bullet to home plate she could easily find the back of my skull; 2) does the name Lorena Bobbitt mean anything? What Yardly is telling us is the same thing a moron from the Boston Globe told us after HealthCare was passed, one of Teddy Kennedy's signature dreams . It was that if Mary Jo Kopechne were alive she would be very proud and happy.
The amazing aspect of this is Yardly gets paid to publish this drivel.

It's Official------------Again

Just as they did for the election of 2008 the Communist Party USA has thrown their full support to the re-election of Barack H. Obama of 2012. Would one expect anything else?

Tricked Ya', Didn't I

I snagged by son's beat up old computer in Olathe, Kansas after the eleven hour drive yesterday, then collapsed on his basement bed. Woke up this morning with a heavy chest and head cold, took a wheelbarrow full of meds then went back to sleep. When this old timer misses Sunday Mass you know 'something's rotten in Denmark'.
Just a small amount of 'this 'n that. Obama is up 4% points over Romney; no big deal. At this time in '88 Dukakis was up 17 over Bush I according to Drudge and Reagan was down 4 to Carter. In October Carter had increased his lead to 8. Pollsters?
Would you enjoy irritating a lib. There's an article in the American Thinker by Jay Yeardley blaming Carter, then Clinton, for the massive economic problems we have today. It's due to the de-regulations on the housing market then further give aways from Freddie and Fannie at the behest of Bawney Frank and Chris Dodd. Smart folks know you can't give sell a new Lexus when people can't afford the payments. That's what the Dems did and we all know it.
Fact Check. com gave Clinton six lies at the DNC but as Joe Biden said in a speech in Ohio, "I'd tell you about them but it's too hot".

October 1, 2012

With great sadness and the fear that I will go through severe computer withdrawal due to my addiction I am going to have to suspend writing until October 1, 2010. Since my computer is in for repair and the fact that in the next two weeks I will be driving to Kansas, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Manitoba, Canada returning to Ohio September 30; well I hope you understand. I also am looking forward to doing what I enjoy; writing and presenting information to you. Be safe and healthy. MJH

'On The Road' But Not With Charles Kuralt

Lizzie and I enjoyed Sunday Moring With Charles Kuralt. It was on CBS and Mr. Kuralt was always visiting a very unique part of America; interviewing people with special talents or skills. He's go into the foothills and hollers of West Virginia to see how bacon was cured or he might take a canoe trip to the Boundary Waters of Minnesota. Well, MJ Hawkeye is about to begin his own road show but sooner than I anticipated. I'm only presenting my itinerary so you'll know I'm not slacking off, especially since the computer is in the shop.
The things parents do for their children but happily so. My Olathe, Kansas son bought a pre-owned car. He purchased it from the father-in-law of son number two who lives in Ohio. The question was, how can this vehicle get transported from Ohio to Kansas? It was an easy answer. Dad #1 will drive it to Kansas on Sunday. No big deal for me. What's twelve hours out of my life; one way. Then I'll pick up his car and drive it back on Tuesday for the trade. As soon as I get home to Dublin, Ohio I'll pack my car and begin the trek to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Manitoba. As mentioned yesterday, the posts will be limited but think of the blog fodder awaiting you. It's going to be amazing.

Tidbits On The DNC; It's A Zoo

What a disorganized event we are witnessing in Charlotte. The weather forecast calls for a 10% chance of moisture this evening so the handlers have moved Obama's speech from a 74,000 seat amphitheater to an indoor 20,000 facility. Hmmmm. It doesn't matter what the weather is, their just weren't going to be that many to fill the place.
A few days ago I wrote about the DNC eliminating the word, God, from their platform. They also dropped the notion that Jerusalem would be the Israeli capital forever. My guess is Obama had a conniption fit over this. Then some dude, yesterday, went on stage to have a verbal roll call vote. Those in favor of changing the platform were, in unison, to shout "Yea". Those against the change were to give a "Nay" answer. Three times this person asked for the vote. It need a two-thirds vote by voice. It was obvious that the Nays outnumbered the Yeas but, Lawdy Lawdy, the audience was told the Yeas won. Then the boos rained down from the rafters. Even Bob Beckel on The Five had to laugh at that elimination of democracy.
Readers, I'm under no great belief that, if the Republicans win this election(which I think they will), there will be massive change for the better in the country. The GOP will still control the process. The TEA Party won the congressional elections for the Republicans in 2010 but did you notice how they were shut out at their convention? It'll still be the same old same old. It's just that we won't have an avowed socialist-Alinskyite in the White House. Let me illustrate. I thought there was one very significant aspect of Clinton's speech last night and, no, I didn't watch. It came from news accounts this morning. I will quote verbatim: "He(Obama) has laid the foundation for a new modern economy; a shared prosperity". If that isn't a call for socialism then what is? Heck, Joe the Plumber was right from the get go. I don't want shared prosperity. I want to be able to give of my money to my son's high school, to my church, to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, to the American Cancer Society. I want to do it of my own free will. And I have to believe that the great many of you who read this feel the same.

Darned Computer

I've been hoping against hope that I'd have to take my computer in for needed repairs. It's like when I needed a hip replacement; kept putting it off for two years thinking it would cure itself. Today I dropped my life blood off at MicroCenter. They know me by my first name; sort of like when Norm walked into 'Cheers'. Anyway, the problem is every time I open the lid the base gets out of whack. It wobbles. I signed in to see one of those people called a 'computer specialist' and came up with Dominique. She looked at it and said, "You've got a screw loose". "Well, I know that", I said, "but what's wrong with the computer"? Heck, this happened three months ago and another 'specialist' pulled out a Phillips,  turned it to the right five or six times and the problem was taken care rectified. This time Miss Dominique said they'd have to keep it for awhile to run, and get this, a diagnostic test. Then MicroCenter might have to order a  part. I could save them the time by going over to Roush Hardware. I paid $200 for extended insurance on the computer. If it gets 'accidentally' damaged I get a new one, no questions asked. That's when  I told the sweet young thing, "why don't I take it to the parking lot and accidentally run over it? Problem solved for all of us. She wasn't buying that so now I'm stuck; maybe for a week. The point being I'm at the Dublin, Ohio library punching out letters on the screen. i.e. I love you all bunches and barrels full but have patience. There might not be a whole lot coming your way.
P.S. You have a choice tonight, Bill Clinton or NFL football. Thoe rating should be more than interesting.

It Wasn't An Anti-Conservative Cartoon After All

I feel so dumb. I posted this cartoon a week ago as a slam on Paul Ryan. It went something like, "Paul Ryan said what"? Then this one popped up so the way I figure it is someone at the DNC was spoofing us.

TV Game Show Host Twitters

Chuck Woolery on Twitter Says:

Home - by BigFurHat - September 4, 2012

Michelle Obama says; No one should ever go broke due to an illness, unless it is Obama’s brother in Kenya.

Question Of The Day

Now that the DNC is having their big liefest where the heck is John Kerry's veep partner, John Edwards? Since he lives in a mansion in North Carolina it's only a hop, skip and jump to Charlotte.

Chance The Gardener

I'm into reprinting articles today; not because I'm lazy but, in my opinion, some deserve to be read again. I wrote the following piece on June 1, 2010. Obama had been in office for just under 18 months. Amazing, isn't it?

Had enough? All you who jumped onto and stayed on the bandwagon aren't you about ready to throw yourselves under the bus? When will you stop making excuses? Only the most hardened of you can hang on and some are making gurgling sounds, or is it a death rattle? The thrill has left the leg of Chris Matthews. Maureen Dowd is making fun of his ears and Bill Maher has him on his crap list.
The Joe Sestak Scandal is so amateurish I could pull it off. One would think the Obama crew would've checked out the fact that Sestak wasn't even eligible for a supposed volunteer position before having Slick Willie jump into the fray with his fabrication.
Did you know there was an oil leak in the Gulf? Not a problem, though. The gang that can't shoot straight has set up commissions to study the situation. Commissions are code for, "we're clueless".
There is a very serious situation in Arizona. During the Nixon administration I warned my high school students that someday we were going to have real problems with illegal immigration. It's all come to a head. Our President makes jokes about it while the folks in Arizona want something done for protection from drug dealers, kidnappers and murderers. Our leader allows this country to be trashed by the President of Mexico before a joint session of Congress while the rule of law in the southwest is being ignored. Shameful, Indeed!
If it weren't so serious it'd be comical but this Obama clown is flat out incompetent. A guy with a zero resume' who has accomplished nothing in life. A fella who has surrounded himself with avowed communists and socialists in his administration. A President with zero business experience who has placed in his administration radicals with no business experience. He has surrounded himself with community activists. You are familiar with activists? They're social workers-----period!
Any American would be hard pressed to come up with anything positive Barack H. Obama has said about this nation. There has not been an utterance of anything patriotic. I've heard not one statement of pride in being a citizen(if he is) of the United States of America.
Eighteen months ago I compared Obama with the character of "Chance the Gardener" from the movie, Being There. "Chance the Gardener" was exactly that; a very simple man living a very simple life tending his flowers. The owner of his estate died and Chance is put on the street. Through a series of circumstances Chance is struck by the car of a rich couple from Washington D.C. They take him in to their home. He has impressed them with his, well, "pensiveness". The couple thinks his name is Chauncy Gardner and he is now surrounded by the movers and shakers of the world's power center. Chance had an IQ of 'functional' and couldn't carry on a coherent conversation.The D.C. elite become convinced he is one of them. In groups of people he says nothing of consequence and this gives the 'snooties' the impression that he is nothing short of brilliant; an intellectual listener and thinker. Long story short; Chauncy becomes President of our country. If you haven't seen this Peter Seller's classic you should. If you don't or can't watch the movie not to worry; we're living it today.

A List Of Truisms

I came across this from August 13, 2010. It's worth a re-print:
The enclosed info comes from a dear friend, The Dobber, via my computer. They're 'truisms' and I was going to skip through and delete because there were so many then I thought, what if my friend gives me a quiz? "Oh yeah, those were good ones" doesn't sound believeable when it's a flagrant lie. As I read I kept saying to myself, "been there, done that". It's a good list. Enjoy.

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this -- ever.
15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear get dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
28. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch three consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
29. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'll bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!
30. My check engine light has been on for three months now and nothing's happened. I'm starting to think that my car is just an attention whore.
31. I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?
32. Sometimes I pretend not to remember details about people because having a good memory apparently equates to creepiness.
33. My GPS says "Estimated Arrival Time." I see "Time to Beat."
34. Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
35. My keyboard needs a removable crumb tray like my toaster.
36. What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?
37. I wish it were appropriate to say to a complete stranger, "Excuse me, would you like me to show you how to discipline your child?"

One More Reason To Send Kids To Private Schools

DENVER - When John Peterson teaches U.S. History at East High School, he wants his students to be critical thinkers. But, he says the new standards in Denver Public Schools are crossing the line.
"I really don't think it's the right place for the school district to expect teachers to push students to become activists," Peterson said.

DPS is developing a new teacher evaluation system called LEAP, Leading Effective Academic Practice. It's based on the passage of Senate Bill 191 in 2010.

Within one of the evaluation guidelines is a section which says teacher must do the following to obtain a "distinguished" rating:

*Encourages students to challenge and question the dominant culture
*Encourages students to take social action to change/improve society or work for social justice
*Visuals and artifacts represent various cultures/world groups

The DNC Makes It Official. There Is No God

Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.
This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:
“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
Now the words “God-given” have been removed.

Our Tax Dollars Used To Change A Murderer Into A He/She

It's a logical story. In 1990 a man murders his wife and is sent to prison. Over time he decides he's more of a female than a male so a Federal Judge sides with him/her and allows for a sex change---on our dime. The poor soul is languishing in a men type prison even though he's---all heck, who cares. It's another example of how screwed up we are. I'll give Muslims credit for one thing. If he/she was under Sharia Law he/she wouldn't be anymore.

Who Do We Owe

I jumped the gun on the national debt two weeks ago but I was relying on Neil Cavuto's numbers at Fox. Appropriately enough,  today, at the start of the DNC, we did hit 16 trillion in debt. I've always wanted to have a debt clock on my blog so I do now but only if you click on the link. You can watch it grow, second by second, minute by minute, year by year.

Did Romney Give His Fair Share

Obama Leaves Me Scratching My Head

Well, Barry finally got around to making a trip to the storm ravaged states of Louisiana and Mississippi. It only took him a week. GW caught hell because he didn't act for 72 hours. I was listening to Barack talk about the people in Louisiana today. In a nutshell, this is what he said: "We've acted in a proper and timely fashion to make certain the people are safe and have what they need". The next part is when it gets really good so pay attention. He went on to say, "We need to find out what happened and to make sure it never happens again". Liberals will say that he's such a wonderful, caring man. I say he's an out of touch moron. What happened? It was a hurricane, Mr. President. How can you make sure it never happens again? This is going to be tougher. You'll have to get ahold of the Big Man in the sky and set him straight. It seems like I'm using the words 'idiot' and 'moronic' a great deal in describing this man lately but how else can one explain him?

Nickelodeon Standing By Jason Biggs

Do you know of this jerk? His name is Jason Biggs and he starred in the American Pie movies. He is also employed by the Nickelodeon television network. Last week he tweeted some very obscene remarks about Ann Romney and Janna Ryan. These tweets are so gross and disgusting I can't come close to giving you a clue about how he presented these woman and what he would like to do to them. He remarked on every aspect of the female body in the most vulgar way. I wouldn't talk about Nancy Pelosi in this fashion. You can google the clown to see what he wrote then please take the time to email Nickelodeon to let them know how you feel. My grandchildren used to watch that network. The email address is: .

I'll Never Drink Pepsi Again

This is the Obama logo for the DNC in Charlotte except the greenish part should be a dark blue as shown on television. I realize the CEO's of Pepsi are flaming Libs and if given a choice of Pepsi or urine I'll take the latter but in this case they've abused the right to exist.

The Alleged Rapist Takes To The Podium

Now is the time to dredge up the least reported story of Bill Clinton's sordid past. It's because he's still the leader of the DemocRat Party and will take to the podium to deliver the keynote address for Barack Hussein Obama. I never cared for Clinton; read many books about him prior to his taking office and afterwards. While it is my belief that Obama is trying to undermine this country I had other reasons for my hatred of Clinton. He was a womanizer of the highest order. He trampled on anyone who got in his way. He abused the power of the office like no other, in Arkansas and DC. He destroyed the lives of women, with full knowledge from Hillary and for the total purpose of power. He was and is a slimeball of the highest order.
The most egregious crime committed was the alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick, an Arkansas nursing home operator. Hers was selected as the best run in Arkansas. Clinton decided to pay her a visit and they were supposed to meet in a coffee shop for a chat except that Clinton called her and suggested, to avoid reporters, they have coffee in her hotel room to avoid the press. Big Bill, at the time, was Lt. Governor of Arkansas. I'll avoid the entire scenario because you can read the link. According to Broaddrick, in later testimony, Clinton held her down on the bed and while ramming it home bit her lip so badly that it broke the skin. "You can put ice on it he told her later". Also, he said, "Don't worry about getting pregnant. I had mumps as a child and am sterile", according to Broaddrick. I guess that means that Chelsea belongs to someone else; Vince Foster, maybe.
During the election of '96 a reporter asked Dan Rather about the incident and in his own special way that only turds can do he said, "I don't interfere into other's sex lives. "Dan, a sex life does not involve rape". The interesting fact is that there was another woman who gave the same testimony about Clinton; same bit lip and same comment about the mumps.
So, if you happen to be watching the Ol' Horndog on TV tell me about it because I won't be. All the while he's lying you can think about a 'War on Women' and what it really means to the Party of Nothing. To ad further credence to this story the linked article came from The Washington Post, no less, and was published in 1999.

In the event it appears I'm venting with an agenda for conservatives I have another link deatailing testimony from other nurse's at Broaddrick's nursing home about the 'incident'.
In some states, Clinton would still be in prison.


As of 6:40 am EDT the tote board shows 100,000 visits to MJ Hawkeye. It is such a positive feeling I will celebrate with another cup of coffee. Thanks to those who have been onboard for these past three and a half years. A special thanks to Doc in Lewis Center, the Council Bluffs Cowboy, Dan Cirucci, Elizabeth in North Carolina, the Lady from Madison, Toby, Big Buff, my southern correspondent in The Woodlands, my wonderful Storm Lake cuz who has been with me since day 1, those special folks who had the courage to put me on their favorites list and the community of Boone, Iowa. It would be a massive insult if I didn't mention Capt. Tom. He discovered this blog three months ago and started at the beginning and has read every single post. That is either extreme dedication or he needs to get a life in a big hurry but I was overwhelmed when I found out. From humble  beginnings in '08 with a readership of thirty a month we've grown to 8,000 for that period. There have been visits from over twenty countries outside the United States and I thank them, too. Did I forget anyone? I hope not. I feel like a just won an Oscar. Thanks so much for being here.

Sinatra It Isn't

A nominee for the worst lyrics for a rap song: who am I to argue?

Nicki Minaj, “Stupid Hoe”“You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (x3)
You a stupid hoe, (yeah) you a, you a stupid hoe
You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (stupid, stupid)
You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (stupid, stupid)
You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (stupid, stupid)
(stupid, stupid)”

Question Of The Day

Now exactly what was it that Obama did to win the Nobel Peace Prize ten months into his presidency?

It's Nice Being A Big Mouth Yank

In 1990 I was almost two years into my sales job. Since our company was in it's infancy and I was the fifth guy hired I had a large territory called the western hemisphere. My boss said if we had to fly then our territory would be cut and since nobody wanted to lose one dollar we drove and drove. It was also in 1990 that I noticed a very large monetary order come through from Brantford, Ontario, compliments of the Worthington Pump Company. I told my boss that I'd just struck the mother lode. His comeback was, "when you visit them you get the credit, aka, money. It's an eight hour drive to Brantford from my home in Ohio. I was there the next day. Isn't it funny when you hear about cities but have never been there. I knew it was the boyhood home of Wayne Gretzky and I was more excited to say I was going to be in his hometown town than I was to visit the pump company. True story about Brantford: In over twenty years I've stayed in more motels than the owner of Holiday Inns. I've stayed in the best and the worst. Brantford holds the record for least expensive. The room was pink and the TV had a coat hanger for an antennae. The kicker was the bill came to $8 Canadian money.
When I first started visiting Worthington I had to schmooze the purchasing agent. He's the guy who got me in the door. It's usually a waste with these guys. All they want to do is got to lunch, play golf and beg for a cheaper price for my product. This man was a nice guy but he and I didn't click. Even so, I continued to visit, talk with engineers and generally make a nuisance of myself. I don't know how it came about but eventually I came across one of the engineers and we did click. I know I gave him a Callaway driver early on. That's one way to make friends and it's called bribery. The reason I bring him up is I received an email from him this morning. I haven't seen him in four years but every once in awhile I'll contact him or, as was the case today, he'll email me. He told me he reads my blog. That was exciting for me to read. I feel I grew up with his family. When I was in Stoney Creek, a suburb of Hamilton, I'd be at their home. I watched their pre-teen son, Ian, grow from a sometimes smart aleck twerp to a responsible married man and now with a newborn daughter. I could be in their living room, watching TV with him(Rick Henry) and his wife Fay, while lying on the carpet in my stocking feet. We golfed together and I took his family to dinner. We went to their favorite restaurant, a place I can't remember by name, but it was the largest buffet of great foods I'd ever seen and was located just off the QEW east of Hamilton.
These folks had me at their dinner table more often I can recall for a period of eighteen years. I always tried to remember to bring dessert, usually ice cream, but there was this pie place a few miles east of Brantford. The pies were to die for. Rick's wife introduced me to Skittles but I think 'Up North' they call them something like Smarmies. No, wait! They're called Smarties. It doesn't matter because I'd never heard of them and they got a good laugh out of it. Oh, those Canadians and their sense of humor.
The wonderful thing about the Henry's was they'd do anything to help me out. Canadians, to me, were of two types especially in Ontario. When it came to Americans it was a 50-50 vote; love 'em or hate 'em. Around 2000 I was involved in an  horrific auto accident near Sudbury, Ontario. Sudbury is where the American astronauts practice for moonwalks. The best way to describe it is 'The Boulders'. Since my vehicle was destroyed the Henry's drove to where I was, God only knows where, and drove me across the border to the Buffalo airport. I can't remember where they picked me up but without them I'd still be in downtown Toronto, probably homeless and begging for walleye and seal blubber.
Rick is one of those guys who would throw barbs my way. Some people, who lack confidence and self-worth, might take offense. Not me. I thrive on that stuff.  It's fun to be able to exchange these 'comedic insults'. I knew I was Rick's pal when, one day on the golf course, he called me a 'Big Mouth Yank'. It didn't bother me and I laughed when he said it. He doesn't know this until now but after our round, while we were having a beer in the clubhouse, I put two Ex-lax in his brew while he was leaving a squirt in the mens room. Canadians, ya' gotta love 'em.

We've Heard This Before

One of my priest friends, Fr. Remmes, has been doing his gig for over fifty years. Every so often he'll tell me about a special church occassion that comes up and then it's time to get into the archives for that one particular sermon. He uses pretty much the same sermon for weddings and he's had a bunch. He might as well be called Marryin' Sam for the many he's performed. I asked him to officiate for the marriage of my oldest son in Kansas City but all he really did was stand on the alter. For this I paid his way down from Iowa, put him up in a motel, gave him a stipend and fed him his meals. After the wedding was over I told him for all that he did I would've saved a boat load full of money if I'd stuck a cardboard cutout of him next to the bride and groom.
 Father has saved every sermon since 1962. When we're together he'll quote a line or paragraph he thinks is a gut buster and then we'll laugh with gusto.
There's a video on the post that references our Dud-in-Chief comparing speeches from 2008 and 2012. It's quite funny. He too has gone back in the archives; same speech, different day. Like Fr. Remme's talks, these, too, are gut busters.

Obama's Secret Note: If Israel Attacks Iran We Won't Get Involved

The Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot published a startling report Monday detailing a message it says was conveyed by the Obama administration – via two European countries – to Iranian officials. The request: if Israel decides to strike Iranian nuclear facilities, the U.S. will not support it and the Islamic Republic should refrain from retaliating on U.S. military installations in the Persian Gulf.

You Are Being Hoodwinked By The MSM

Saturday night was dudsville for television unless you were into the Olympics. Around 9 PM, with remote in hand, I pressed the guide button to check out my choices. I must have skimmed the channels fifteen times and then I saw the name, 'Stossel' on the Fox Business channel. I've always liked John Stossel dating back to his days with 20/20. He was constantly exposing a company or government agency for graft and corruption. On the FBC he has an in-studio audience which adds to the spontaneity of the telecast. Last nights show centered around the impact the mainstream media has in determining the issue of gas and oil and how pipelines, if constructed, would destroy the landscape of America. As a guest he had on Sarah Palin of 'drill baby drill' fame. You may have heard this spiel before but, if not, she was talking about drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge. Did you know that the State of Alaska is two and a half times the size of Texas? Did you know that the ANWR region for drilling is 2,000 acres, about the size of LAX. In actuality, the caribou herds have flourished because of the drilling that took place. It warmed the area so that vegetation had a chance to grow in the tundra. The lack of drilling in ANWR is causing the loss of thousands of jobs, in most cases, Barack, union jobs. According to Palin there has only been one pipeline accident in the history of the ANWR pipeline and that was when a hunter got irresponsible with his rifle.
On to bigger things, if you'll permit me. The Keystone Pipeline has been put on hold by the Obama administration coming out of Canada to the USA. The Canadians had no choice but to be selling to the ChiComs. Why, say the Obamanuts, the pipeline would destroy the environmental system of this country. And then the MSM pushes this mantra to the extent that it makes lemmings of our people and gives the eco-nuts a platform to espouse their uncompromising views. We haven't built a refinery in this country for around forty years and people wonder why we pay large amounts of hard earned cash on the best fuel in the world at the pump. And this doesn't take into account what lies under our ground which is the largest reserve in the world.
What I'd like you to do is study very carefully this map I've re-printed. It shows the number of pipelines for oil and natural gas already in place in the US. Then click on the attachment to see more detailed maps, ten of them, that show exactly where these pipelines begin and end. So, I ask you, if all these pipelines are in place right now have you noticed a lack of chickadees in your yard? Have all the swallows gone to Capistrano? I saw a hummingbird yesterday at my golf course and I didn't look twice because I see them all the time.
Folks, we're being hoodwinked by the media. If you didn't know better one would think they have an agenda.;_ylt=A2KJke3MCCdQKhMAMH.JzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?
Check out every single map. It's amazing how we're being duped.

Obama Throws His Daughters Under The Bus

"On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday show, Jessica Yellin said she interviewed Obama for a forthcoming documentary and asked him why he did not do more outreach to Republicans in the beginning of his term to bridge the divides Obama often rails against.
Yellin said Obama told her one of the reasons he did not was because he wanted to spend more time at home with his kids and family.
"He was trying to spend some time at home with his family in the evenings and on the weekends,” Yellin said.
No mention was made of golf, fund-raising or vacations

From Janesville to Jilin: GM Opens Plant In China Four Months After Shutting Down Janesville Facility


A bailed out General Motors expanded its small truck and SUV manufacturing in China soon after closing down similar facilities in Janesville, Wisconsin—the plant Barack Obama pledged to save and keep open for “another hundred years” in 2008.
GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by 55 percent since emerging from bankruptcy thanks to a $50 billion bailout from taxpayers. An important piece of that increased capacity has taken place in Changchun, Jilin Province in China.

A SEAL's Own Story

"The worst it has to say about President Obama is that
none of the fighters who caught bin Laden wanted to help
re-elect him, and that he never followed through on a promise
to invite them to the White House for a beer".

By Janet Maslin, NY Times:
The Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, learned from ABC News that they had “gazelle legs, no waist, and a huge upper body configuration,” not to mention calloused hands and gigantic egos. They learned from other American news sources that they had taken part in a 45-minute firefight and that an armed bin Laden, once cornered, had tried to defend himself in his final moments, staring straight at the fighters who would shoot him. Their raid was being turned into a bad action movie.

Clinton On Obama, 'A Few Years Ago This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags'

Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillay Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."

"Hey, The Rev. Moon Died"

GAPYEONG, South Korea (AP) — The Rev. Sun Myung Moon was a self-proclaimed messiah who built a global business empire. He called both North Korean leaders and American presidents his friends, but was spent time in prisons in both countries. His followers around the world cherished him, while his detractors accused him of brainwashing recruits and extracting money from worshippers.

Okay, now that you know this you can go about your business.

Atlanta Teacher Helped Students Cheat Because They Were "Dumb As Hell"

An Atlanta math teacher allegedly offered students the answers to a test because she thought they were “dumb as hell,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported August 29. Shayla Smith, a former fifth-grade teacher at Dobbs Elementary School, was responsible for overseeing students while they were taking state-sponsored tests, and all tests monitored by Smith were reportedly blotched with questionable erasure marks, amounting to a “practically impossible frequency of changes from wrong to right [answers],” according to the Atlanta paper.

Dem Sponsored Islamic Event In Charlotte

It's called a 'Jumma' prayer whatever that means. I'm not into Islamic traditions. Evidently the Dems are because they sponsored it. Islamists are throwing their support to Obama. That, in itself, should be enough to make patriotic Americans shudder in horror. Take a gander at yesterday's picture. You might notice one of these 'towel heads' with a tattered American flag around his neck. My response if I was there would be to say, "Hey, we've got nothing else to do. Let's beat the s**t out of the guy". You've heard Obama mention that the Muslim culture is a part of the fabric of America. I didn't know this. The only contribution I could possibly think of would be that they provided camels for our War for Independence. The Muslim faction is echoing Obama by trying to tell us that Muslims came to America with Christopher Columbus. If you buy that one I'll make you a good deal on an outhouse I have at our Minnesota cabin.

One More Reason To Love Iowa

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – President Obama received a less than warm welcome and a warning upon arrival at the airport here on the second stop of his Iowa visit, which was aimed at recapturing some of the magic the state gave his run to the White House in 2008.
Greeting Air Force One as it touched down under sunny skies and sultry heat was a hand-painted banner draped across the top of an airplane hangar that reads, “Obama Welcome to SUX – We Did Build This.” “SUX” is the airport code for Sioux City.

Where Are Milwaukee's Black Voters

Not to worry. They'll rise from the dead around November 5.

Are 60% of Milwaukee’s black voters from 2008 missing? That’s what a study from the New Organizing Institute claims, which estimates that as many as 160,000 black voters in the city from the last presidential election can no longer be found.

SEAL book, 'No Easy Day'

One excerpt from the new Navy SEAL book about to come out from one of those who took part in the Osama bin Laden raid:

Though he praises the president for green-lighting the risky assault, Owen says the SEALS joked that Obama would take credit for their success. On his second night in Afghanistan waiting for final orders, sitting around a fire pit and joking about which Hollywood actors would play them in the bin Laden movie, one SEAL joked, “And we’ll get Obama reelected for sure. I can see him now, talking about how he killed bin Laden,” according to Owen.
Owen writes: “We had seen it before when he took credit for the Captain Phillips rescue. Although we applauded the decision-making in this case, there was no doubt in anybody’s mind that he would take all the political credit for this too.”
Later, while watching Obama’s speech announcing the raid, Owen writes: “None of us were huge fans of Obama. We respected him as the commander in chief of the military and for giving us the green light on the mission.” When one SEAL jokes again that they got Obama reelected, Owen asks, “Well, would you rather not have done this?”

A Classic Case Of Being Classic

I'm For Equality---Not

My firend, George, sent me an anti-Republican cartoon last week. Wish I had saved it. He said it's the first time he's ever received an anti-conservative type political cartoon. I'd never seen one, either. Being a good hearted fella I decided to put one on this site just to show you ow absolutely ridiculous it is. They're laughing at Paul Ryan?  Let's change the name to Joe Biden.

Is This Worse Than What Todd Akin Did?

Todd Akin caught all kinds of crap for his explanation of what rape is and it's ramifications. Many in the GOP begged him to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. Hmmm---I've had a change of mind. His comment was stupid. What former Obama aide did was more than stupid. It was criminal, a kind of war on women thingy.

A former Democratic staffer on Capitol Hill who briefly worked in the Obama administration has been accused of "drugging and sexually assaulting women," the Washington Post reports.
A former senior congressional aide was indicted this week in D.C. Superior Court on charges that he sexually assaulted two women after drugging them with a sedative that he allegedly put in their drinks.
Donny Ray Williams Jr., 36, who served as staff director for a Senate subcommittee and worked in the offices of several members of Congress, gave at least one woman Ambien and assaulted her while she was unconscious, according to court papers.
Williams was charged with 10 counts of first- and second-degree sexual abuse and related charges in connection with attacks that authorities said occurred between July and December 2010.

What Do These Companies All Have In Common

Scroll on down and consider what the companies do and what political party they support. You'll be in for a huge surprise after reading:

* Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund ($2.2 million)
* Indiana Public Retirement System ($39.3 million)
* Iowa Public Employees’ Retirement System ($177.1 million)
* The Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension System ($19.5 million)
* Maryland State Retirement and Pension System ($117.5 million)
* Public Employees’ Retirement System of Nevada ($20.3 million)
* State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio ($767.3 million)
* Pennsylvania State Employees’ Retirement System ($231.5 million)
* Employees’ Retirement System of Rhode Island ($25 million)
* San Diego County Employees Retirement Association ($23.5 million)
* Teacher Retirement System of Texas ($122.5 million
They've all invested over $1.5 billion, as in dollars, in Bain Capital. Ha-ha.

GOP Voters At An All-Time High

This should make the majority of Americans smile:
According to new research released today by Rasmussen, more voters identify themselves as Republican than ever in the last 8 years. More importantly, by a 4 point margin, more voters identify as GOP than Democrat. This is the largest spread between the parties ever. Worse for Democrats, the number of voters who identify with their party is also approaching an historic low.

"Please Make My Dream Come True"

All bets are off at the upcoming DNC shindig in Charlotte this upcoming week. There's great anticipation among the LGBT crowd that the Dems will include these folks agenda their platform, according to GLBT leaders. I hope so. It would be a dream come true. My next 'hope' is that the Gay crowd has their own parade wearing their finest 'look at me' costumes." Please, Lord, showcase this event to the nation". Give them the attention they so rightly deserve. I'm all for whatever they want to do in their pink panties and rainbow colored bolas.

"Hey Moms, You're Incompetent"

Mrs. Obama has come out with another of her food dictates that should make normal people cringe. She's now telling the grocery shoppers how to do it. When Lizzie's gone I shop for myself. Sometimes, when Lizzie's home I do it, too. I like going to the store. Besides getting what I want, there are also a lot of good looking Mom's at the store and that helps pass the time in a good way.
Michelle O is using a website, to provide tips on proper shopping, e.g. avoid buying cookies. "Man, why didn't I think of that"?(I was smacking my forehead as I typed). There's a problem with the cookie thinking. Three weeks ago I swore off sugar. It was a personal ,self-imposed idea. Last night I was at my local Walgreens and happened to walk by the ice cream cooler. I spied a half gallon of my very fav, strawberry cheese cake. There wasn't an angel or devil in my head either tugging one way and another; didn't even think about it. I not only bought it I started eating as soon as I jumped on the couch. So, for all of you who don't know how to grocery shop I present the proper way to do it. From The Worst Lady it's called Supermarket Shopping 101.

Stopping Them In Their Tracks

It's right out of the Left-Wing playbook; attack the message and the messenger. Have you ever had to listen to a blathering idiot spew nonsense and didn't have the proper comeback until after they'd left ? As an example, these boobs come out with some talking point then later, while you're driving down the road you say, "Damn, why didn't I think of that response"? Well, I have one you can use. The success of the film, 2016 The Movie has been overwhelming. I've heard Libs tell me it's a blatant attack on America and the office of the presidency. It's a sign of disrespect toward the office that shouldn't be tolerated, blah, blah, blah. All you have to do, and this is easy, is say, "Where were you when that human toilet bowl, Michael Moore, came out with Fahrenheit 911 attacking George W. Bush? If that doesn't stop them in their tracks it won't matter because you've made an intelligent point; something that's impossible for a Lib to do.

You Might Want To Put Pins In Your Eyes

 It's what I've been saying since the list of speakers came out for the DNC; Who are they are why are they here. It's a list of nothings. They're so nondescript they read like they're from Alcoholics Anonymous: "I'm I'm Bob and I'm a DemocRat". Click on the link of the entire list, scan it quickly then see how many you recognize. My question is, where's Jesse Jackson Jr. and the Cuomo's? Of course, the loser voters don't care who speaks. They've made up their minds to vote for the Entitlement Party. They'll continue to chant their tired, worn out phrases: "War on Women" and "Fair Share". I miss the good ol' days of ten years ago when some boob would want to let you know where they stood politically, then they'd utter that knock out word, "Halliburton". Rather than waster your time watching and listening to jellyfish why not do something constructive; put pins in your eyes.

From Hot Air:
"Ace of Spades wrote about this yesterday but I didn’t have time to look at the list until now. Go see for yourself. I went through it being as objective as I could about who might be interesting to watch as a young, impressive, highly touted leader of the future in the Rubio, Ryan, Christie, Jindal, Susana Martinez, Rand Paul, Brian Sandoval, Mia Love mold. Out of a list of 75 or so names, here’s what I’ve got — and I’m stretching even on some of these, just so that I’ve got something".
