Rocking the Fatman!

Oh those wily Morbid Strangers will be rocking the Fatman this Saredee night from 8PM until midnight! Fatman's is located on Highway 412 in Perry county just east of the bridge over the Tennessee River.

There's no cover charge so just come on over and have fun.

Dang! I thought for a minute the guy riding the scooter was our drummer, Tommy Sowell! He is a chubby little thing!

Yeah you can tell old Sowell took a spiraling downhill course from his youth to his state today.

I'll Defend Obama for Once!

There's a story about how our glorious president, the messiah, the "ONE", the man child, Hussein Obama lied on the Television show THE VIEW (there's one show I won't be watching) when he declared he did not know who Snookie was. Check out this link to watch the damning video.

I am sure that on May 1 when he talked about Snookie and Jersey Shore that he had no idea then who Snookie was. He was just reading the script he had been given.

We're it not for Jay Leno, I wouldn't know who Snookie is either.In my defense, I can name all 8 current Supreme Court justices, can you? I can also name the left wing whacko who will likely be named the next justice, can you? If you don't know your justices, but you know who Snookie is, you have your priorities mixed up! I digress........

The only thing Obama is guilty of here is:

1. Being completely humorless.
2. Allowing his writers to make him look like an ass.

The only reason I bring this up is because it is extremely rare that you will ever hear me defend Obama. RARE!

Bend Over! Here Comes Hussein!

Get ready, small bidness owners! Idiot in Chief, Hussein Obama is going to give you something! It's gonna be big! It's gonna be hard! It's gonna be oh so painful! You're not gonna want it and you'll try to run, but he's gonna catch you, strap you down, and stick it to you!

OMG! OMG! More tax increases for small bidness! This is just what we need in the middle of this God awful recession! For you uninformed doofi (that plural of doofus) this will mean less money for small bidness capital expenditure, less hiring, more layoffs, increased unemployment! Are you beginning to see the picture?

For all you doofi that voted for all that hope and change.......THANKS A LOT! Perhaps your boss will tell you to GET LOST!

To get your very own Hussein Obama dildo, CLICK HERE!

Have fun!

Go Vote!

Well, it's done! Me and sweet Wifey voted early today. The most important vote was that of Decatur county mayor. I hope I made the best decision possible. There were a couple of other candidates that I strongly considered as well and I would not be upset if either of them became the next county mayor. There are a couple of other ones that I hope don't have a snowball's chance.

Whatever your political leanings it is imperative that you educate yourself, make informed decisions and GO VOTE! Decatur county has pretty much suffered for the last 2 or 3 years at the hands of a do nothing mayor. Important county services are at risk and may cease to exist if changes are not made.

Decatur county is a great place to live and we need to keep it that way. Now, get off your butts and go vote!

Your Healthcare is in the Crosshairs

News from our friends across the pond in Great Britain indicates that they are planning to "decentralize" healthcare. The plan is to "shift control of England’s $160 billion annual health budget from a centralized bureaucracy to doctors at the local level. Under the plan, $100 billion to $125 billion a year would be meted out to general practitioners...".

Imagine that! They're going to give the money and the control back to the doctors! What a innovative idea!

At the same time, idiot in charge of the U.S. Senate, Dingy Harry Reid, has declared that "We're going to have a public option, the only question is when."

Dingy Harry went on to say that "Social Security is the most successful social program in the history of the world."

He also argued against "fear tactics of those who say Social Security is going broke. It's not."

Hey, Dingy Harry! What planet are you living on? Social Security is not going broke, it already is broke and will be unsustainable along with Medicare if it is not drastically reformed!

What an idiot! Boy I so hope for the good of the country that Sharron Angle beats this guy's ass but good in the November election.

So as the U.K. struggles to move toward the free market, Uncle Sam moves toward socialism taking our healthcare with him. SAD!

Relax with a Little Music

I'm tired of politics. I'm tired of Hussein Obama. I'm tired of the crooks in congress. I'm tired of hearing about the oil spill, Tiger Woods, Lindsay Lohan, and all the wars going on in the world.

But something I never get tired of hearing is good music, so here ya go:

I have always loved this song:

Here's another one that I think is awesome:

If you don't like this, you'd better go see the doctor. Something is wrong with you.

Somebody Out There is Paying Attention

I still have not decided who I am voting for in the Decatur County mayoral race, but I'm planning to go vote early one day next week, so I guess I had better make up my mind. There are a Republican and Democrat as well as a whole bunch of independents running.

I received a letter in the mail today. It had no return address and it was postmarked in Memphis, TN. The letter contained an article from one of the local newspapers alerting me to the fact that one of the independents in the race had voted FOR a resolution to ban handguns in Parsons city parks.

It so happened that this particular candidate was on my radar as a possible choice, but now I am not so sure. In fact I had narrowed it down to three but now it looks like I'm down to two. It seems that someone out there has been paying attention to either my blog or my contributions to the local newspapers and is highly aware of my support for the Constitution of the United States, especially the second amendment, or maybe they just don't like this guy and did a general mailing. Whatever the case, I will have great difficulty pulling the lever for anyone that ignores the Constitution.

Congress is Bringing up the Rear

A recent Gallup poll of institutions ranks congress as dead last at 11 percent. Well this should be no surprise. What a bunch of self serving boobs they are, governing against the will of the American people, saddling us with ridiculous rules and regulations, and spending more and more of our grandchildren's money. I hope this is a signal of things to come in November.

At the top of the list is the military. This is good. They deserve our respect and confidence.

Others in the doldrums are big bidness, 19 percent, organized labor, 20 percent, television news, 22 percent and newspapers at 25 percent.

I have nothing against big bidness. Bidnesses large and small provide jobs for everyone and investment opportunities for all us folks with stocks, 401K's, and mutual funds. I gotta think big bidness is at the bottom due to the demonization by the left. Without this I think big bidness would rank much higher.

I'm surprised organized labor ranks so low. After all, Hussein Obama and the left think that unions are the best thing since sliced bread. Perhaps average people are smart enough to see unions for what they really are.......TROUBLE!

Television news and newspapers are in the toilet and this is no surprise. I see these numbers continuing to decline.

My Likes & Gripes

Might I take a moment to introduce you to a new blog, My Likes & Gripes? This is the griping spot for my friend, Brooke, who is a nurse here at the hospital. She's a young thing but she's a conservative, hates Hussein Obama, and seems to be headed in the right direction.

She's in the family way and will be birthing a baby soon. I've told her that the smart thing to do is to have puppies and not children, but these young people won't listen to me.............oh well, they just gotta have those babies!

I'm gonna put Brooke's blog in my sidebar and try to visit there often. Yall try and do the same.

No Time for Blogging

Busy, busy, busy, that's been the story for the last couple of days. I've been up before dawn and headed down toe Jackson, TN. to refresh my PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) and ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) credentials. The days are spent training in CPR, classroom training, and practical scenarios. I am also an instructor in both so that requires extra refresher training too. Boy my old back is really sore after all that, and unfortunately, not much time for blogging. I'll try to get back into the swing of things now that all this is over.

These courses are sponsored by the American Heart Association and are designed to make us better health care providers and teach us the latest lifesaving techniques.

Whew! I'm tired! Glad I'm ok for the next 2 years.

28 Percent Approval for Hussein Obama?

That's right! There's a poll in Arizona that states Hussein's approval rating has dropped to only 28 percent. Is it any wonder?

1. Massive spending (stimulus, porkulus).
2. Takeover of the banks, car companies, and now energy.
3. The unwanted Obamacare.
4. The threat of cap and trade (tax).
5. His failure (refusal) to seal the Arizona border.
6. He is suing Arizona for trying to enforce illegal immigration laws.

After a time it all mounts up. Nobody should be surprised.

Will Hussein Take Over Your Bank Account?

Here's something that sounds scary. The article says that British Prime Minister, David Cameron, plans to raid "dormant" bank accounts and take the money to fund community projects.

I sure hate it when other people give the Obama administration new ideas on how to rip us off and take our money away. What exactly is a "dormant" account? I have a bunch of different accounts in the form of IRA's and 401K's that I have not touched for years. The financial institutions send me periodic statements letting me know they have not given my money away.

I hear rumblings and rumors from time to time that the gubment would just love to get their filthy hands on our retirement savings and news like this makes me even more suspicious. What say you?

It's Not How Old You Are, It's How You Are Old!

Sometimes even the smallest things in life will give me a smile. I went yesterday to one of our local restaurants to get some takeout food for Wifey, my visiting grandson, and myself. The place was a lot busier than usual and the staff was running behind with their tongues hanging out so I sat an waited for a spell.

In a few minutes, three little old ladies came in the door. They were all humped over and barely creaking along, but they were smiling and seemed like they were getting ready to have a good time going out to eat. One of them, who seemed a bit addled, headed on in to the dining room stating that she was ready to sit down. The other two stopped her and told her they had best wait for the hostess to seat them. I could tell she was not impressed by their suggestion.

As I watched I smiled and thought, "Well, this is great. They can barely get along, but instead of sitting at home taking their pulse and reading their PDR about medication side effects (my late father-in-law used to do this), they are out enjoying life and having a good time."

In a minute one of the waitresses walked by and said, "Yall can just go on in and sit anywhere you like."

They proceeded to waddle in. I heard the one old girl say, "See, I told you it would be ok for us to just go sit down."

Sometimes you just gotta smile!

The United Nations Helped Me Once!

I often think back to my perception of things when I was a child and compare them to the realities of today's world. When I was 3 or 4 years old I remember I was very afraid of the Soviet Union. I was so afraid that I would often go in the other room when the news came on. I was afraid they would tell me that the Russians were on the way to invade us and drop atomic bombs on our heads.

When I would play outside I was afraid of a couple of things, buzzards and con-trails. I always thought buzzards might swoop down and carry me off. I guess I had heard a story about how an eagle had kidnapped a little Indian papoose or some such thing. I always thought the con-trails were Russian bombers flying over to blow us to kingdom come. Jet planes were pretty new when I was a kid, so con-trails were a fairly uncommon event. I'd just quietly sneak back inside.

One thing about the Soviet Union was that they were so much bigger size wise than the United States and in the mind of a child I guess, land mass was the deciding factor in a fight. I shared my fears about Russia one day with my mother. She told that we had nothing much to fear from Russia cause the United States was a member of the United Nations. She showed me a map of the world and explained that large countries like Canada and Brazil and many many other smaller countries were also in the UN and they would surely help us out in a fight. This was shortly after the Korean War and she explained to me how the UN had turned back the invasion of those filthy North Koreans. Now I dunno if my mother really believed anything good about the UN. Surely she realized that the "end" of the fighting in Korea was due almost totally to the US military, Seems like this was around the time in 1956 when Russia invaded Hungary. I remember the pictures of the tanks in the streets on the news. The Russians just didn't seem very afraid of us. Then Sputnik came along and now I was hearing the Russians could just shoot missiles at us. In spite of all my mother's good news about the UN I guess I still felt uneasy but I remember I was a little encouraged by all those other "friendly" nations just waiting to come to our aid!

I really am not sure of my parents' political leanings and grasp of world events. I know they liked Ike, but I'm not sure if they voted for him, but I also remember them speaking highly of Harry Truman and FDR.  I'm not sure if they went for Kennedy or Nixon in 1960. They were both devastated when Kennedy was assassinated as was I. I know they voted for LBJ in 1964 because they thought Barry Goldwater was trigger happy and would lead us to world war 3.

In 1962 the Cuban missile crisis scared the hell out of all of us. I remember in grade school we started having daily "tornado drills" where we would all file out into the center hallway and crouch down into a ball. I guess I was wondering why the UN could not throw some fear into those evil Russians. Strangely, after the missile crisis ended, so did the "tornado drills". Seems like the adults thought us kids were kinda stupid.........well we weren't that stupid. We knew what was going on and we were not sure if we would see the next sunrise. I remembered that Jesus promised He'd take me to heaven if I died. I'm glad that us kids didn't know how close we came to Armageddon. Reading about it now is really scary.

As the 60's rolled on and I became a teenager, I began to come face to face with reality. I no longer feared the Russians so much, not because of the UN, but because I began to realize the power of our military. We were winning the space race and I decided our missiles were much better than those of the Bear. I realized that Lyndon Johnson was bad for America and that Vietnam was a bad place to be and I realized that if we weren't going to fight to end the Vietnam war, we needed to get out. I was worried about going to Vietnam, but when I turned 18, my draft lottery number was 326, and the war was beginning to wind down..........I missed Vietnam and I'm not sorry.

In the early 70's I guess I was pretty much apolitical. I remember I liked Richard Nixon mainly because it looked like he was getting us out of Vietnam. I actually still kinda like Nixon in spite of his shenanigans. I voted for Nixon in 1972. I met sweet Wifey in 1972 which was by far the best year of my life. Then I went off to college and eventually medical school. I remember in college that most of my professors were Dimocrats, but I don't remember any of them filling my head with political nonsense or trying to indoctrinate me. During this time I came to realize the greatness of the United States, perhaps because of my love of history. I realized that America was indeed exceptional, not because we were born different or better but because of freedom and liberty and individual achievement. I began to see that liberal social programs never worked and always cost a lot of money......money down the drain.

I came to realize that the UN was populated by a bunch of third world states led by tin pot dictators that hated the US, oppressed their people, and wanted our prosperity for themselves and I realized we were probably better off without the UN, in spite of what my mother had told me.

I liked Gerald Ford. I always thought he was a level headed and decent man. By 1976 I suppose I had become a full fledged, rock solid conservative. I remember getting into arguments with other students about Jimmy Carter, and that we would be in deep doo doo if he was elected president. I was not wrong.

So, by the time I was 24, I was all grown up politically. It took me about that long to figure out the UN. I am thankful that enough of our politicians following world war 2 had enough good sense to keep our military strong and able to deter the Soviet Union. I am not so sure about the bunch of lunatics we have in Warshington today.

The Obama Lies Continue as the Constitution and our Freedom Flies Away

Today's news says that Obama is now defending the unconstitutional mandate to purchase health insurance as constitutional. He states the federal gubment has the power to do this because the gubment has "the power to lay and collect taxes". So now he's calling this mandate a tax?

Wait a minute! Whatever happened to the campaign promise of no tax increases if you make less than $250,000? Obama lies! You lie! You lie! You lie!

Now I read that insurers are pushing plans that reduce premiums but limit choices of doctors and hospitals! Wait a minute! Seems if I remember that Hussein promised you'd be able to keep your health plan and your doctor if you liked them. Obama lies! You lie! You lie! You lie!

And in Massachusetts of course, firms are dumping employees off the health insurance rolls and encouraging them to sign up for state subsided plans, HELLO GUBMENT OPTION! HELLO SINGLE PAYER HEALTHCARE! Of course Massachusetts is groaning cause they CAN'T AFFORD IT!

Obama lies and our freedom flies away! If I had any hair, I'd pull it out!

General McChrystal Update

Obama was having a brief conversation with General McChrystal about Afghanistan.

Things were obviously not going the way the General had hoped. Obama could sense this, and told him, "I bet when I die, you'll pee on my grave."

To which the General replied, "No sir, I've always said that when I get out of the Army, I'll never wait in line again."

De Gubment Say, You Too Damn Fat! SUCKA!

Reading on Drudge a few minutes ago that beginning in 2014, de gubment say dat your obesity rating must be included in stimulus mandated electronic health records. So now Uncle Sam is going to keep track of every one of us big or small. First of all I am not sure what the "stimulus" which has stimulated nothing has to do with electronic health records and vice versa. They are also saying that this information must be available - with appropriate security measures - on a national exchange. So there will be a nationwide database of your fatness for all the world to see.

Okay they know you're too fat. They say that your fatness has an adverse impact on your health. What then? You guessed it! They're gonna tell you what to eat, what to drink, mandate a REQUIRED exercise program, and take it upon themselves to take away your freedom and liberty and force upon you all their imaginary healthful bullshit! You're too stupid to make your own choices.

And on top of this, Hussein Obama, has appointed his personal Chicago cook as HEALTH FOOD CZAR! That's right! More of your tax money that we don't have to pay this guy to be a White House adviser! This is because Michelle Obama declared that OBESITY IS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY!

Folks, it's getting freakin unbelievable out there!

I Have a Rumbling Deep in my Bowels

You know things just aren't looking too swift for old Hussein Obama these days. He continues to fall in the polls. He may lose his majorities in the house and possibly the senate. He's pretty much made a mess of everything he has touched. He is becoming hated both on the left and the right. Even Serpent Head, James Carville is ranting at him and rightly so.

Now I'm not feeling sorry for the jerk. He richly deserves anything bad that might happen to him.

Seems like lately our old friend, Bill Clinton has begun throwing darts at old Hussein. This is nothing new. It was a frequent occurrence during the 2008 Dimocrat primaries, but it more or less calmed down after Hillary took her secretary position. Now it looks like it might be starting up again. Hmmmmmmmm. I'm wondering if we're gonna see a sudden resignation of Hillary Clinton immediately after the 2010 election? Hmmmmmmm? Could it be? Most of those so called independents out there are indicating they will vote for a Republican over Hussein Obama................but if they had a Dimocrat choice, would things be different? I dunno, but I just have a rumbling deep in my bowels. If you ax me, the time may be just right for the Wicked Witch of the West to strike. You know she's still got to be really pissed off that the incompetent black guy out of nowheresville ruined her presidential chances. Could she become president in 2012? I think she has a damned good chance. I would hate it but we'd be better off with her than the boob we got now.

I could certainly be wrong. There's no way to predict what political twists and turns may lie ahead. A few months from now things may look completely different, but...............I just have a rumbling deep in my bowels............maybe it's that Subway sammich I just ate..........
 Hillary HELL!

Decatur County Mayor Qualifications

A friend of mine went to an event Toosdee night where the 7 or 8 candidates for Decatur county mayor were answering questions. One of the questions asked what qualified that person to be county mayor. The response from one of them was that he needed no qualification other than to be able to read and write.........boy oh boy.

I was not there. I got this second hand, and I am paraphrasing, but I have every reason to believe this person was telling me the truth.

Is it any wonder we are in such a mess?

Here is yet another candidate I am crossing off the list.

The Oil Leak is Stopped! For Now......

The oil leak has been capped! Caution however is the mood. They don't seem convinced the new cap is going to hold. For the sake of all the folks around the gulf, I hope it does. I betcha the Obama praise machine is hoping for the best too.

Prince Charles, Climate Expert

I'm changing my opinion about the hoax of global warming. Prince Charles has has attacked climate change skeptics. Well, if the heir apparent to the throne of Great Britain said it, it must be so!

Hmmmmmmmm, I been looking around trying to find Charles' qualifications as a climate expert. Hmmmmmm, doesn't really look like Charlie has ever really done anything much.........he hasn't taken financial risk, started a bidness, created real jobs for employees............nah the Buckingham Palace  guards don't count. Looks like Charles and Algore have about the same level of expertise. I think I'll call up the prince and have him perform a complete analysis on my carbon footprint!

The 1200 Dollar Fish Hook and Dishonest Politicians

There are 7 or 8 different people running for mayor of our county. The election is next month. I am not excited as none of them have said much of anything that has impressed me and spout out all the same old generic stuff that you hear from someone trying to get a vote. So rather than try to decide on a candidate I rather have taken it upon myself to determine those that do not deserve my vote and eliminate them from the pack.

I became aware the other day that one of our glorious mayoral candidates was running around badmouthing the hospital. He was stating that he had a fish hook in his finger and it cost him $1200 to have it removed. He was heard to tell his would be constituents that this hospital was just going to tighten its belt if it couldn't get by on $1200 dollars for a fish hook.

I of course did some investigating. I found out that the hospital was paid a grand total of $95.91 for this fish hook removal from Medicare and Blue Cross supplement. The ER company (for which I work) was paid an amount of slightly less than $300 (the hospital sees none of this). So the total amount paid for fish hook removal was in truth slightly less than $400, with the hospital seeing less than $100 of this. I found out that the patient (the politician) was charged an amount of ZERO dollars and ZERO cents.

So why is this guy badmouthing the hospital? Well, I dunno for sure, but I would guess that his would be constituents probably had some kind of a beef with the hospital. Rather than just let things go he rather invented this story to commiserate with the angry voter. "Shame on that vile hospital! If I get elected, I'm gonna show them!"

For less than 100 dollars, the hospital has to run an emergency room, hire nurses, hire an ambulance to be standing by, stock up with drugs and equipment etc. The administrator told me that the belt had been tightened about to the limit.

Well, I know at least one of the candidates I WON"T be voting for. I hate people that tell lies, especially politicians. This could explain why I hate most politicians!

Gubment (Taxpayer) Subsidized Murder, Now a Reality!

I warned you about this already, and now it has come to pass. The federal gubment under Hussein Obama has bestowed upon the State of Pennsylvania $160 million dollars of YOUR tax money which can and no doubt will be used to fund ABORTIONS! That means the KILLING OF THE UNBORN for all you ignorant dweebs out there.

Whatever happened to that executive order that was supposed to prohibit such a thing? Well, of course it was a bald faced lie from the get-go.

What a sad day for the United States. We are now a nation of gubment subsidized murder.

Billboard Complaints

Sweet Wifey beat me to the punch this morning about this. Go over to Right Truth and read about it. The natives are complaining so I hear. Of course the same natives were wringing their hands and cheering when George W. Bush was accused of being a Nazi. Hell I've even been accused of being a Nazi and a racist more than once. I really couldn't care less.

Actually the sign pretty much says it all. "FEARFUL AND NAIVE". This is exactly how Hussein Obama got elected to begin with, by preying on the sentiments of the fearful and naive. They created the fear by crisis mongering ("no good crisis should go to waste") and they knew that the majority of the populace is uninformed and naive. Most people catch a glimpse of the mainstream media news and that's all they get. They don't bother to dig for the whole truth. I heard the other day that 65 percent of people in this country could not name a single Supreme Court Justice. These same people can tell you the contestants on American Idol or Dancing with the Stars. These same people heard the "hope and change" message of Hussein Obama and swallowed the whole thing.

Of course they are mad about the billboard. The communists that supported Obama are mad because the truth is coming out. He is a communist and a miserable failure as a president. The fearful and naive are mad because it's hard to admit that you were ignorant and stupid. I find fewer and fewer people that will admit they voted for Hussein. When the topic comes up, they fade quietly into the shadows, with a "How could I have been so stupid?" look on their faces.

I surfed around and found some more similar images. They are all spot on. Hope you enjoy them.
If you're a leftist communist reading this post, I sincerely hopr you are truly outraged. You deserve it!

Turn off your Air Conditioner. Don't go to Work. Don't Bathe for the next Three Months!

There is an idiot who writes for the Washington Post named Stan Cook. He is an obvious environmentalist whacko and wants us to turn off our air conditioners. Here is his article. My comments are interjected in RED for your enjoyment. It's hard to read the whole thing without rolling on the floor and laughing your ass off but give it a shot!

In the heat wave, the case against air conditioning

By Stan Cox
Sunday, July 11, 2010; B03

Washington didn't grind to a sweaty halt last week under triple-digit temperatures (nor should it have) . People didn't even slow down. Instead, the three-day, 100-plus-degree, record-shattering heat wave prompted Washingtonians to crank up their favorite humidity-reducing, electricity-bill-busting (yes they do run on electricity), fluorocarbon-filled (so what?) appliance: the air conditioner.

(Photos: People cool down during heat wave

This isn't smart (says who? this Washington Post idiot?). In a country that's among the world's highest greenhouse-gas emitters (so what?), air conditioning is one of the worst power-guzzlers. The energy required to air-condition American homes and retail spaces has doubled since the early 1990s. Turning buildings into refrigerators burns fossil fuels(so what?), which emits greenhouse gases(so what?), which raises global temperatures(say you, does it really? prove it!), which creates a need for -- you guessed it -- more air-conditioning.

A.C.'s obvious public-health benefits during severe heat waves do not justify its lavish use in everyday life for months on end (and this is true just because you say so?). Less than half a century ago, America thrived with only the spottiest use of air conditioning. It could again. While central air will always be needed in facilities such as hospitals, archives and cooling centers for those who are vulnerable to heat, what would an otherwise A.C.-free Washington look like?

At work
In a world without air conditioning, a warmer, more flexible, more relaxed workplace helps make summer a time to slow down again (right, people are gonna show up for work in a 100 degree building, sweating all over their work. They are going to slow down in this time of recession when they need to be working harder?). Three-digit temperatures prompt siestas (If I am the boss of a small bidness, I'm going to encourage my employees to take paid siestas!). Code-orange days mean offices are closed. Shorter summer business hours and month-long closings -- common in pre-air-conditioned America -- return. (This is just what we need to turn the economy around and create new private sector jobs.)
(Eye on Earth: A glimpse of how humans might be impacting the natural environment

Business suits are out, for both sexes (is this liberal insinuating we'd let the men wear shorts and make the women wear bidness suits? How about string bikinis for the good looking babes?). And with the right to open a window(did you catch that? the "RIGHT" to open a window. The gubment will pass laws banning AC and make opening a window a RIGHT! This is typical liberal nanny state bullshit!) , office employees no longer have to carry sweaters or space heaters to work in the summer (They use space heaters and sweaters in 100 degree heat?). After a long absence, ceiling fans, window fans and desk fans (and, for that matter, paperweights) take back the American office.(I can't wait to feel the 100 degree air being stirred around me by my fan, mixing my salt and my water on the outside of my skin. Oh he forgot to mention that the amount of hot water consumed for daily baths and showers is going to increase probably 4 fold.)

Best of all, Washington's biggest business -- government -- is transformed. In 1978, 50 years after air conditioning was installed in Congress, New York Times columnist Russell Baker noted that, pre-A.C., Congress was forced to adjourn to avoid Washington's torturous summers, and "the nation enjoyed a respite from the promulgation of more laws, the depredations of lobbyists, the hatching of new schemes for Federal expansion and, of course, the cost of maintaining a government running at full blast."(This is the first sensible thing this guy has said. I have always been in favor of a congressional recess from about January to December. The American people prosper when Warshington is in either recess of gridlock!)

Post-A.C., Congress again adjourns for the summer, giving "tea partiers" the smaller government they seek. During unseasonably warm spring and fall days, hearings are held under canopies on the Capitol lawn. What better way to foster open government and prompt politicians to focus on climate change?(yeah, let the crooked bastards sweat out on the Capitol lawn heh heh! Let them debate about the hoax of climate change!)

At home
Homeowners from Ward 8 to the Palisades pry open double-hung windows that were painted shut decades ago. In the air-conditioned age, fear of crime was often cited by people reluctant to open their homes to night breezes. In Washington, as in most of the world's warm cities, window grilles (not "bars," please) are now standard.
In renovation and new construction alike, high ceilings, better cross-ventilation, whole-house fans, screened porches, basements and white "cool roofs" to reflect solar rays become de rigueur. Home utility bills plummet. (Hmmmm how long before my electric bill is gonna catch up to my bill for all those new renovations?)

Families unplug as many heat-generating appliances as possible. Forget clothes dryers --post-A.C. neighborhoods are crisscrossed with clotheslines. The hot stove is abandoned for the grill, and dinner is eaten on the porch.(Guess I'm just gonna have to pull a Mel Gibson and slap the hell out of sweet Wifey and make her hang up clothes.)

Around town
Saying goodbye to A.C. means saying hello to the world. With more people spending more time outdoors -- particularly in the late afternoon and evening, when temperatures fall more quickly outside than they do inside -- neighborhoods see a boom in spontaneous summertime socializing.(Might as well socialize. They're all unemployed. Those siestas have their price!)

Rather than cowering alone in chilly home-entertainment rooms, neighbors get to know one another. Because there are more people outside, streets in high-crime areas become safer. As a result of all this, a strange thing happens: Deaths from heat decline. Elderly people no longer die alone inside sweltering apartments, too afraid to venture outside for help and too isolated to be noticed. Instead, people look out for one another during heat waves, checking in on their most vulnerable neighbors.(I'm sitting here, cowering in my chilly home entertainment room with my eyes bugged out in disbelief!)

Children -- and others -- take to bikes and scooters, because of the cooling effect of air movement. Calls for more summer school and even year-round school cease. Our kids don't need more time inside, everyone agrees; they need the shady playgrounds and water sprinklers that spring up in every neighborhood.(Yeah, just let the little bastards grow up to be illiterate. They don need no steenkin school. We gots de gubment to take care of dem!)

"Green roofs" of grass, ivy and even food crops sprout on the flat tops of government and commercial buildings around the city, including the White House. These layers of soil and vegetation (on top of a crucially leak-proof surface) insulate interiors from the pounding sun, while water from the plants' leaves provides evaporative cooling. More trees than ever appear in both private and public spaces.(Sigh.........)

And the Mall is reborn as the National Grove.

Is this guy for real or is this pure satire? It's the Warshington Post, you gotta think he's on the level. Of course he's probably one of the those that doesn't want us to drill for oil, dig for coal, build new refineries, build more nuclear plants............sigh.....what planet is this guy living on?....I'm going back to my chilly dungeon.

Which Way are the Political Winds Blowing Today?

"...and perhaps foremost, he (Hussein Obama) wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"

The above are the words of Charles Bolden. In fact he has said this on more than one occasion. Oh but the political winds are blowing on a daily basis and you can bet Hussein Obama and his communist thugs have their finger in the breeze. Evidently appeasement of Muslims IS NOT the will of the American people and suddenly the White House is distancing itself from Charles Bolden.

Chief media Boob, Robert Gibbs says that Bolden must have "misspoken" when he made that statement. "That was not his task and that is not the task of NASA."

But Bolden made this claim last month and also back in February. Does anyone reading believe that this was not the intent of Hussein Obama, chief Muslim sympathizer?

I guess the Hussein Obama administration thinks we are just stupid and will believe yet another lie......well he did get elected. There are obviously a lot of stupid people out there. Time to wake up and wise up!

A "NO" Vote on Kagan. Are my Favorite RINO's Watching?

Utah senator, Orin Hatch is going to vote NO on the appointment of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. He says she is "inappropriate" for the court, lacks judicial and legal experience and he criticized her past political jobs. Hatch also voted against the racist judge, Sonya Sotomayor. Good for you, Orin.

Now I'm waiting to see what my favorite RINO senator, Lamar Alexander is going to do. As you may recall, in a previous letter I had gotten from him, he had not made up his mind. I just don't understand what drives some of these learned senators. It took me about 5 seconds to make up my mind about this woman.......NO! NO! NO! Surely Lamar must be smarter than me?????

Minnesota Felons Elect Horses Ass to US Senate

Here's a story that posits illegal votes of felons in Minnesota may have resulted in election of Al Franken (horse's ass) to the US Senate. Dan McGrath of the Minnesota Majority, the group revealing these finding, says they can't legally change the results of the election, rather they are just trying to insure the integrity of the next election.

Yeah, yeah, yeah......well I'll bet my shriveled crusty ass that if the shoe were on the other foot and the Republican had been elected, this story would be front page news all over the gubment controlled media. There would be calls for recount after recount, court battles, threats from the Black Panthers, calls for the assassination of the Republican....on and on. As it is, I find the story in an obscure corner on Matt Drudge.

I have to wonder what kind of lunatics populate the great state of Minnesota anyway. Perhaps the same lunatics that voted for Hussein Obama? If thinking people had been casting ballots, Franken should have lost by a landslide.

The Grouch Makes a Prediction

The tense news on Drudge is that the BP oil leak may be capped and contained by Monday. I sure hope the predictions are correct. If they are successful, I will predict that for several days afterward, the drive by media will flood us with stories of how great Hussein Obama is and what a great job Hussein did getting on top of this problem. If the efforts fail, I predict we will hear nothing much about this from the drive by media. This is my prediction! Anyone wanna make any bets? Hmmmmm?


Another submission from my friend, Dr. Tim Ashmore.

A Couple of Neat Tee Shirts for you and your Friends

These submitted by my friend, Dr. Tim Ashmore:

A Sorry Excuse for a Human Being

Once again, I'm not going to spend much time on this but I gotta say that it appears that Mel Gibson is another steenkin piece of human debris. The latest flap occurred when Mel was caught on audio, cursing out his former girlfriend, making fun of her breast implants and using the "N" word. Go HERE to listen: WARNING! IT IS PRETTY DISGUSTING!

I also understand that Mel and his ex-girlfriend are in some kinda custody battle over their 8 month old daughter. Poor kid.

Mel has been accused of domestic violence....somehow I believe it. I am not defending the 40 year old ex-girlfriend, I know nothing about her. She may be a scumbag too, but come on, there's no excuse for Gibson's rant and behavior.

Of course, this is not Mel's first rodeo. Back in 2006 he got in trouble for drunk driving and making anti-Semitic remarks. So I guess Mel hates blacks, jews, and women. If it were up to me I'd.........nah, yall don't need to hear what I think he should have done to him.

Ronald McDonald Grows a Pair!

I have always thought that Ronald McDonald looked a little wimpy and gay, along with the Burger King. Here's some refreshing news from Jim Skinner, McDonald's CEO (hat tip Wifey) In so many words, Mr. Skinner told the Center for Science in the Public Interest to go F#CK themselves. Way to go Ronald McDonald!

The Center for Science in the Public Interest threatened to sue Ronald McDonald if they did not dump toys that accompanied Happy Meals. Ronald told them to, "Forget it!" You can go HERE to read all the details.

Now first of all, just what the hell is the Center for Science in the Public Interest? My first guess would be a bunch of self appointed, self aggrandizing, liberal "experts", who know better than you or I what is best. And here they go marching around telling a private company, selling a legal product, what they can and cannot do! Get a clue! IT IS NONE OF YOUR DAMNED BIDNESS!

What really pisses me off about all of this is that in this day and time I guess you can sue anyone over most anything regardless of the merits of the case. So if these nanny state liberals decide to sue Ronald and the McDonald klan, McDonalds, will have to spend time and money defending this nonsense in a court of law, even if the case is thrown out. This screams for the need for a loser pays justice system. The nanny staters wouldn't be so high and mighty if they were gonna lose and end up having to pay the tab.......they would probably just go away which is exactly what they need to do.

In any case it is good that McDonalds is standing up to these creeps. It is high time that other companies and industries follow suit.

As an aside, I would like to see the state of Arizona tell Hussein Obama to go F#CK himself. Forget the court challenge to Arizona's state law. Just say, "Forget the court, Hussein! The REPUBLIC OF ARIZONA is going to do what needs to be done! You need to get yourself and your jack booted thugs out of the state and go back to Warshington or straight to hell, whichever comes first! If you don't like it, send the military our way. We'll meet you at the border with our own troops, locked and loaded and see who blinks first!"

Oh I would love it so! The time for secession is upon us! I know, I know, I'm dreaming. It will never happen, but it is nice to dream!

Robert Gibbs is a Blithering Boob

The following from the Rush Limbaugh website:

Yesterday in Washington, the lawsuit the feds have filed against Arizona over the immigration bill, the federal government is saying, "You can't usurp our laws, you can't do that. This is a federal requirement, a federal law, you can't go out and do what we're supposed to do. We're in charge of it."  And somebody said, "Well, what about sanctuary cities?"  I mean sanctuary cities are cities that allow illegals in, in violation of federal law.  Why are they not under attack?  Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona brought that up.  An unidentified female reporter asked that question to the White House press secretary Robert Gibbs in the daily press briefing yesterday.

REPORTER:  There are dozens of so-called sanctuary cities that have their own policies that might potentially conflict with federal law, something that's led Governor Brewer to say that if Arizona is in violation of federal law then so are these localities. So my question is why did the president only ask DOJ to look at Arizona and not everywhere?

GIBBS:  Let me see if I can get -- I don't know the answer to that but I will try to seek some, uh, some answer on, uh, some answer on that.  I don't know.

RUSH:  (imitating Gibbs) "I don't know." He doesn't know. "I don't know why sanctuary cities are fine, but Arizona is not. I'm going to have to look into that.  I don't know."  What do you bet we never -- well, we'll probably get some convoluted answer to it if somebody brings it up again.  

It never ceases to amaze me how the federal gubment wants to pick and choose which of its laws to either enforce or ignore, or which parts of the Constitution to follow or butcher. Whatever it takes to further their left wing agenda. What is never a surprise to me is the idiocy and incompetence of Robert Gibbs.

Time for the Grouch "100 Treatment"

I'm not going to spend much time on this but boy I am really getting tired of seeing and hearing about super skank, Lindsey Lohan. Seems as if she's gonna spend a few days in jail. Well, that's just great. She'll probably spend a few days there whining and squalling and complaining and get out to start all this crapola all over again.

Allow me to introduce all of you to the GROUCH "100 treatment".

Here goes:

1. Lindsey is forced to tote 100 pound sacks,
2. for a distance of 100 feet,
3. in 100 degree heat,
4. for 100 hours a week,
5. for 100 dollars a month,
6. for a period of 100 months.

This sentence should be handed out to Lindsey and other worthless pieces of human debris like her. It should be clear that if she is a repeat offender she will be returned to the "100 treatment" area for double the time.

The Day My Ass Fell Off

I get on this goofy computer pretty much on a daily basis. One of my routines is to go over to the facebook page just to see what is going on. 99 percent of facebook is a nonsensical waste of time. Someone will make a comment on how hot it was today and how much they sweated. Someone else will leave a comment also about their daily sweating and will finish up with "LOL".

Huh? LOL? Really? Of course LOL is an internet acronym for "laugh out loud". Really? You're gonna tell me you really laughed out loud over how much you sweated today? If this is true, then it doesn't take much to amuse most people.

I have to sit back and think how many times a day I actually laugh out loud. I dunno, if I'm watching a good comedy on TV, maybe three or four times, tops. I can't think of very many times I've laughed out loud at anything I've seen on facebook........maybe a grin or a grunt or even a groan, but a laugh? NAH. I have noticed drunks at a bar will suddenly and without warning come out with a big and boisterous LOL. I'm thinking, "Well, it really wasn't that damned funny." However, the number of LOL's is no doubt directly proportional to the nummer of drinks consumed. It also seems that loud mouthed yankees are more prone to LOL's than southerners. This observation has been developed from my vast experience at the Dayton, Ohio Hamvention. There are more loud mouthed yankees there than you can shake a stick at.

Then I'll see LMAO (laugh my ass off) or ROFLMAO (rolling on floor, laughing my ass off). I have lived for nearly 58 years. I have had plenty of good laughs. I never remember laughing so hard that I ever rolled on the floor. I certainly never remember my ass coming off during even the most violent fits of laughing. Perhaps I have not yet been drunk enough to experience this phenomenon.

So what is it with this LMAO, ROFLMAO stuff I see on facebook? Are all my facebook friends really that much more jolly than I? I just don't know. Now a couple of my favorite acronyms are OMG and WTF. You can figure those out by yourself. All you gotta do is read the headlines on Drudge or Right Truth everyday and realize how much Hussein Obama and his band of brothers and brother wannabees are screwing up this country and you're liable to come out with an OMG or a WTF a couple of dozen times and that's on a slow day.

Yall please do me a favor. Next time one of your asses falls off from laughing, take a picture of it. I wanna see.

Fat Girls Pole Dancing

I just couldn't resist, but my friend Keri, aka Button, took this picture at a local establishment here in the county. Damn! I missed it! FAT GIRLS POLE DANCING! I just wanted all my blogger friends to be aware of what a high class area that sweet Wifey and I live in.

The neat thing about fat girls pole dancing is that if you get hungry, you can lift up a roll and probably find a minner cheese sammich under there from last week.....yum yum!

My drummer, Tommy Sowell, says fat girls need lovin' too! I suppose he's right.

The only thing I can think of better than this is when they have MIDGET STRIPPER NIGHT down at the Wobble Inn.

PS. How about that high tech mailbox stand?

Redistribution of Wealth - Where does it End?

So, Donald Berwick, Hussein Obama's recess appointee director for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has declared that healthcare is a right and that fair and equitable healthcare will require redistribution of wealth. Well, this is no surprise. Anyone with a grain of sense that has been paying attention knows that Hussein Obama and the Dimocrats all believe in the redistribution of YOUR wealth. Joe the Plumber knew it, remember him? Fine, so what's next?

Those of us that work hard and make more money and live in nicer homes should I guess give some of our money to those that did not bother to work as hard or make decisions or get a good education. We should sell out nicer homes so everyone could live in a crackerbox or the latest space provided by public housing? Well Chris Dodd and Barney Frank have already done that for us in the form of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, forcing banks to loan money to people who cannot afford to pay it back and leading us down the road to the credit and housing disaster that is now upon us. What's next?

I guess those of us that worked hard and made good decisions should give back a little so instead of having a nice steak and a good glass of wine, we can instead all go together and get a healthy Happy Meal? Maybe grandma can get a can of Alpo instead of the generic Walmart brand of dogfood. Where does it end? What's next?

Shame on us hard working folks who worked hard and made good decisions! Some of us like to drive a Cadillac, or a nice SUV with all the extras. SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! We should trade in our expensive cars and start a nationwide association called CLUNKERS ACROSS AMERICA so we can all be equal and drive clunkers together! Where does it end? What's next?

Starting tomorrow, I'm gonna go out and work twice as hard and pay more taxes so my friends who did not bother to work hard and made stupid decisions in their life can enjoy the same lifestyle as I. Shame on me, I'm turning over a new leaf!

A Message from Lamar Alexander

A few days ago, I sent both my senators a message encouraging them to vote against Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. I reminded Lamar Alexander that he had already made one mistake by voting FOR Sonya Sotomayor. I got a reply today from Lamar:

Dear Thomas,

Thanks very much for getting in touch with me and letting me know what's on your mind regarding the nomination of Elena Kagan to serve as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Obama won the election and is entitled to nominate individuals to serve on the federal bench, subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.  However, I was deeply offended by how senators on the other side of the aisle changed the rules on President George W. Bush's Supreme Court nominees.  I said at the time that as long as the president nominated well-qualified people, who'd be impartial, they should have an up-or-down vote, and that I would vote to confirm them.  That's still my view.  Of course, in truly extraordinary cases senators reserve the prerogative - as do I - to vote "no" or even to vote to deny an up-or-down vote.

I will carefully consider the president's nomination of Elena Kagan.  In March 2009 I voted against Ms. Kagan for Solicitor General because I was deeply troubled by her aggressive opposition to allowing military recruiters at Harvard Law School when she was its dean.  I look forward to the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearings to learn more about her record and qualifications.

I appreciate your taking the time to let me know where you stand.  I'll be sure to consider your comments as Ms. Kagan's nomination is discussed and debated in Washington and in Tennessee.



Well I am not quite sure what to make of his reply. First of all I really don't care if Hussein Obama did win the election. If Hussein appoints someone who is going to choose his/her own ideology over protecting and defending the Constitution, then Lamar should vote against that person. In my humble opinion, refusal to uphold the Constitution should mean automatic disqualification (for any judge or elected politician for that matter). Sonya Sotomayor has already failed the test (too little too late). Elena Kagan is a left wing nut and it looks like she will be put in a lifelong position to do great harm to this country. I figure in the end, Lamar will vote for her confirmation. I wonder if he would vote differently if her were up for re-election in 2010? Our crop of RINOs in Warshington just make me sick.

The United States is Worthless! We Just Aren't Gonna Make it Without the World's Help!

Well, my nomination for douchebag of the week or perhaps the month is NASA administrator, Charles Bolden.

Now dig this sports fans.....Bolden said, "...and perhaps foremost, he (Hussein Obama) wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"

I don't know about the rest of you but sometimes I just wanna gag. First of all I just don't understand why we are making overtures to a belief system that has sworn to kill us just because of who we are and what we hold dear.

Secondly, I am not sure what contributions to science, math, and engineering Muslim nations have made. I suppose there may have been some, but I dunno what they are and to quote the famous southerner, Rhett Butler, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." Last time I looked most of the Muslim nations are content to let their populace dwell in the stone age.

Thirdly, I really don't give a rat's ass if Muslim nations feel good about themselves or not. The only thing I want them to feel is the concussion going through their bodies as that bunker buster blows away their hidey-hole.

Since when is it NASA's job to be doing anything other than putting our people into space? How much of our tax money are they gonna waste on this "reach out to Muslims" program?

It gets worse. Bolden went on to say, "...the United States is not going to travel beyond low-Earth orbit on its own and that no country is going to make it to Mars without international help." Good Lord, Mr. Bolden! Says who? You? Hussein Obama? Are you saying that America has become too mediocre to go to Mars on our own?

I am a child of the 60's, Mr. Bolden. I still remember the chill that went down my spine when John Kennedy challenged this country to go to the moon before the end of the decade. And you know what, Mr. Bolden?!?! WE DID IT! The United States did it! We didn't need a buncha little European social democracies helping us. We didn't need assistance from a bunch of backward Muslims. No! The United States did it.....all by itself!

It's called AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM Mr. Bolden! Learn it! Live it! Love it! If other nations want to join in, fine! Just don't tell me that AMERICA CANNOT DO SOMETHING! I know better.

I dunno how much of this crap Bolden believes on his own, most of it probably, but there is no doubt that Hussein Obama hates our great nation. He hates everything that has made us great. He hates our Constitution! He hates our free market! He hates our liberty and freedom we hold dear! He wants to reduce us to nothing more that a mediocre liberal socialized state. Slowly but surely he is trying to extinguish the great and shining light that once was America!
