O. J. Simpson is not Black After All!

Here is some big breaking news! It has been discovered after extensive research and a 3 million dollar gubment funded grant, that armed robber, kidnapper, and unconvicted murder, O. J. Simpson is NOT A BLACK MAN!

Instead he has been found to be of American Indian ancestry.

Notably, Simpson is a member of the Stab-a-hoe tribe!

Aw c'mon, y'all didn't really fall for that didja?

Leslie Nielson Bites the Dust

I was saddened tonight to find out that actor, Leslie Nielson had died. Remember him? I remember the many laughs he brought us in the 1980 movie spoof, Airplane. I also remember him well in his dramatic role in the Poseidon Adventure and his comedic role in the Naked Gun.

Seems like when one of these beloved actors passes on that a little piece of us goes with them as well.

Leslie Nielson will be missed.

Rock Bottom

Well, for the last 4 weeks or so I have thought the Tennessee Titans could not get any worse, and then I watched them lose to the Texans 20-0 today.

Chris Johnson seems unable to run. The wide receivers are ineffective. This Rusty Smith guy threw three interceptions. I don't know if Smith has any talent or not but he sure doesn't have any experience to be a starter. I wondered about Kerry Collins, but I guess his injured calf is still too injured to go. Chris Simms is supposed to be the emergency QB but I gotta think he could have done a better job than Smith........at least he's had some prior experience. I am sure I am voicing opinions with limited information.

I wonder how much offensive coordinator, Mike Heimerdinger's illness has to do with any of this. I gotta think maybe this had something to do with the apparent lack of focus by the team.

The amazing thing is that the Titans are only 1 game out of first place in the AFC South. The Colts and the Jaguars are both 6-5, tied for first, while the Titans and the Texans are both 5-6 tied for last place. Most of the remaining Titans games are divisional games so their chance of making the playoffs is pretty much in their hands.

Sadly I am not hopeful that there is any magic medicine out there to end their losing streak. Time will tell.

Remembering the Cabana Theater

There used to be a place in Jackson, TN. called the Cabana Theater. The neat thing about the Cabana was that it is the only theater I have ever seen or been to that had PRIVATE box seating. In fact this was where my Sweetie and I went on our very first date. She suggested it, REALLY!

There we were, all alone, watching a dumb Beatles movie called Concert for Bangladesh. I must admit I was watching her mile long legs the whole time and I don't really remember anything about the movie. There was an intercom on the wall and you could order concessions from down below and they would bringum right up.

Down in the bottom of the building there was general seating just like a regular theater (a reduced price of course). It only had a single screen unlike the multiscreen cinemas today, so you were stuck with whatever movie was showing.

Eventually the Cabana closed its doors and the building was even torn down. There is no trace of it today. An O'Charley's sits where the Cabana once stood.

I have never seen or heard of another place like the Cabana. I can't understand why it went away. I mean I could envision building a multiscreen theater with private box seating. It is the next best thing to going to the drive in with your sexy girl, except the windows don't fog up, and you don't get cold in the winter.

So what about this? Is this a good idea? Has anyone else ever heard of or been to a similar theater?

Cinemaplanet 10

Yesterdee my sweetie pie and I went out for a movie and to eat. There is a new place in Jackson, called Cinemaplanet 10. Just for fun we decided to check it out. I enjoyed the fact that the place was brand new. The theater smelled like a new car. So far the place has not been spoiled and soiled by a buncha little slobby, snotty nosed kids (and adults). There is a full service restaurant inside the place. We checked out the menu. They have steaks, chicken, and burgers. They also serve beer and mixed drinks. I noticed one dude bringing his whole plate of food in with him to watch the flick.

The downside is that they charge a buck more for seating than the other 2 theaters in town. Now they have VIP seating in some of their theaters which I understand means you get to sit in a recliner. The movie we saw was non-VIP seating. I also noticed the restaurant charged about 3 dollars more for a steak entree compared to the Outback Steakhouse and about 2 or 3 dollars more for a burger compared to the local Red Robin.

So I dunno if this place will make it or not against the competition in these hard economic times. I'll have to admit the place was nice and clean. The employees were nice and clean, all spic and span in black slacks and white shirts and they were ooh so friendly........speaks well of the management I think and we'll go back again and we may actually try out the restaurant. If the place survives, GREAT, if not, oh well.

By the way, we saw Faster, starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton. I found the movie to be very good and full of surprises. Go see it if you get a chance. Afterward we went to the old reliable Ruby Tuesday for a bite. Best salad bar anywhere, yum!

I Agree, Texting Apologies are Just not Manly

I couldn't help but smile when I heard that Tennessee Titans QB, Vince Young had TEXTED an apology to head coach Jeff Fisher. Evidently Fisher did not think much of Vince Young's efforts and went on to say, " I'm not a real big text guy. I'm not really into this new-age stuff. I don't Twitter or tweet. But I think face-to-face is a man thing, OK?"

I could not agree more. What a spineless, wimpy, way to deliver an apology.

In case you missed it, Vince Young had a major hissy fit last Sunday after the Titans overtime loss to the Redskins. He tore off his Jersey and shoulder pads and hurled them into the stands on his way out of the stadium and I also understand had some rather disparaging remarks about his head coach.

Frankly I think it is time for Young to go. This guy has been a pro for 5 years now. This is not his first hissy fit and will not likely be his last. It is time, way past time for him to grow up.

I suppose for the short term the issue is moot since Vince is on injured reserve and out for the rest of the year. I'll be interested to see what happens when next season rolls around.

Thanksgiving Compilation

Back on 11-8 one of my Facebook friends challenged us to post something we were thankful for everyday before Thanksgiving. I thought I'd compile my contributions, great and small, and put them here on Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful for something everyday so it seems. Sweet wifey and I are most blessed through the grace and mercy of God. Perhaps some of you will take time to reflect upon all your blessings.

11-24
Today I am thankful for my sweetie pie. She's been with me for 38 years. She is my soulmate and she completes me. If you have never heard how we met, click here www.righttruth.typepad.com/right_truth/2007/07/love-like-every.html

 11-23
Today I am thankful for the United States of America. I think back over the past 234 years and all of the great things that have been done in the name of freedom and liberty and all the lives that were made better because of the USA! The president likes to apologize to the rest of the world for this country. I on the other hand shudder to think what the world would be like without her. God Bless America!


11-22
Today I'm thankful for my Mom and Pop. They were just two average folks. They raised three kids. They worked hard. They taught me the values of hard work, honesty, kindness and fairness. They took me to church and introduced me to Jesus. Basically they gave me all the tools I needed to succeed in life.

Today I am thankful for football. Boy I hate winter. Fortunately football makes the approach of winter a little easier to swallow. I really hate February, when it is still winter and football is over.







11-19

Today I am thankful for my couch. After a sleepless night at the Chamber of Horrors, it's nice to come home, stretch out, relax, listen to my Rush Limbaugh podcast and let sweetie pie rub my tired feet! Lots of comfort can be found on the couch!

 

 11-18

I am at work today. I am thankful I have a decent place to work and the opportunity to make a good living. Many people are suffering and looking for work. I pray our new congress gets out of the way of small bidnesses and the private sector so more good jobs can be created.

 

 11-17

Today I am thankful for crappie. They are not fighters like a big bass but they still can provide hours of enjoyment and they sure taste good on the plate! Yum! Yum!


  
11-16
I am 58 years old. Today I am thankful that I still think the same way I did when I was 20 years old and enjoy the same things, playing music, going fishing, riding my motorcycle, and chasing my sweetie pie around the house nekkid!





11-15
 
Today I am thankful for our quiet little cabin on the hill. After a hard day of work or play, there's no better place to be. Home is where the love is.

I am thankful today for the largemouth bass. A hard fighter, the ultimate predator, fun to catch, pretty to look at, good to eat! Life is good!










11-12
 
Today I am thankful for frogs. Late in the evening as the faint pink
western sky turns to darkness and a cool mist descends on the quiet
water, all is calm and all is still. The frogs begin their merry song,
celebrating the arrival of night. Probably my favorite time of the day.
Thank you God for sending the frogs.

Douglas MacArthur was Right

So the 60 year long Korean War rages on as the little monkey like tin pot dictator, Kim Jong Il attacks our South Korean ally and basically rubs our noses in the whole thing.

Back during the beginning of the Korean War, General Douglas MacArthur (remember him?)  wanted to win the thing and advocated the use of nuclear weapons to prevent Chinese reinforcements from crossing the Yalu River.

Of course Macarthur was fired by Harry Truman. I happen to think that MacArthur was right. If we had just nuked the blue blazes out of them and stopped the thing cold  we would not be putting up with this nonsense now. At that time, there would not really have been much China and Russia could have done about it other than wring their hands and cry foul, so what? Screw'em!

In fact it wouldn't hurt my feelings one damned bit if we just dropped a 1 megaton nuke right in the middle of Pyongyang right now! I really don't think the Chinese or the Russians would be willing to go to war over it.......just more hand wringing, doncha see?

While we're at it, lets just pull all our troops out of Afghanistan (they all hate us anyway) and make that place uninhabitable for the next thousand years too. It would be no big loss......but that's just me.


Bobby Jindal, a Politician that "GETS IT"!

Boy I really like Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal. He begins by saying, "let's pay congressmen to stay out of Washington  DC."

Amen! Amen! Think about it boys and girls. When was the last time congress ever passed a law that was good for you? I have real trouble answering this question. I'd go even one better, cut congress' pay and just tell them to stay home most of the time. The American people are better off when congress is either in gridlock or recess!

He goes on to say, "Make them part-time, give then term limits."

Yes! Yes! This is way overdue! The president has term limits and so should congressmen and senators! There should be no such thing as career politicians!

"When they have to live under the same rules and laws they pass for the rest os us, maybe you'd see some more common sense coming out of Washington."

Amen brother! I'd like to see a few of them subject to Obamacare death panels.

We sure need more like Bobby Jindal rising to the top. Perhaps there is hope for America!

Regarding the Ground Zero Mosque

 

Regarding the Mosque being built near ground zero. I say let them build it. But then, across the street we should put a topless bar called " You Mecca Me Hot" and next to that a gay bar called"The Turban Cowboy" and next to that a Pork Rib restaurant called "Iraq-O-Ribs" and next to that a ...check cashing place called......... "Iran out of Money" then we'll see who's tolerant......

Momma Grizzly for President?

Well the lame stream media is buzzing with news that Momma Grizzly, Sara Palin may be considering a run for president. According to ABC News she thinks she can beat Obama in 2012.

Well, I don't know what the future may hold for 2012 and frankly I am not nearly as excited about Palin as I was at first. I actually don't really trust her and I have seen signs from time to time that makes me think she is a "compromiser" and an "aisle crosser". Her endorsement of John McCain raised a lot of red flags for me. The courageous thing to do would have been to thank the senator for choosing her in 2008 and then declare it was time to move on with a REAL conservative.

On the other hand the establishment still keeps resurrecting the same old names, Gingrich, Romney, BARF GAG Huckabee. I'm telling you right now that if the nominee ends up being one of those, I'll vote for an independent. No more RINOs for me even if that means Hussein wins a second term.

I could get excited about some names like Cantor, Ryan, Christie, Bachmann, Jindal, or Rubio, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see who emerges. Perhaps some wonderful Ronny Reagan clone will rise up and surprise us all.

If Palin is the nominee, as of right now, I would support her, uncomfortably so. She definitely has got a big following judging by the reception of her TV show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska" and the fact that her daughter Bristol is hanging onto "Dancing with the Stars" for no apparent reason other than she is Momma Grizzly's daughter.

You just gotta love it that she drives the left absolutely crazy. The woman has done nothing other than tell her story and express a few American conservative values and yet she is one of the most hated figures ever attacked by the left.

Whatever your feelings about Sara Palin, the next couple of years are gonna be interesting and exciting to say the least (if we survive that long).

Have it Your Way, and F*** You Very Much!

Jay Leno has a segment on his program called, "What Did You Think was Going to Happen?" It's one of those deals where someone was doing something so stupid that you are just waiting anxiously for the other shoe to drop.

Well evidently a manager and a pimply faced teenager were fired from a Northern California Burger King for lacing sales receipts with profanities, specifically "F*** You" instead of Thank You.

Actually, I thought the whole thing was pretty funny, but I guess the Burger Hierarchy didn't think so. I have to wonder if the fired manager knew anything at all about this but rather lost his/her job as a victim of circumstance.

It is just a classic example of, "What Did You Think was Going to Happen?"

Sneezing

There's no doubt about it. One of life's greatest pleasures is a big powerful sneeze!
A sneeze is the body's way of relieving the nasal passages of some kind of irritant or allergen and I believe in helping the body any way I possibly can. I think sneezes should be big and powerful. They should rattle the windows and shake the earth!

Some people, especially women like sweet Wifey, think they need to stifle their sneezes. Indeed they make a sound akin to a wounded puppy when they finally let it go. Not me! I especially like to go outside to sneeze and just let it go full force, bending over during the blast and spraying all the leaves and trees! Ah what relief! A few times I sneezed so hard I could swear there was gray matter on the ground and once I was sure I had popped out an eyeball! I have from time to time likened my sneezes to volcanic eruptions like Mt. St. Helens or atomic blasts like Ivy Mike or Tsar Bomba, without the radiation of course!

Naturally too much of anything can be bad and I can attest to the fact that I have had a sneezing problem all my life, hay fever, allergic rhinitis, whatever you want to call it. Anyway, I do use a device cause a Nasonex inhaler. Without the inhaler I used to sneeze maybe a hundred or so times per day. I must admit this does get annoying. With the inhaler I usually have only 5 or 6 big powerful explosions daily. I have found that using the inhaler about three times a week keeps things under control.

I was reading about sneezing. In ancient Greece sneezing was thought to be a good omen and a prophetic sign from the gods.

In Europe during the middle ages, life was tied to breath and it was thought that sneezing shortened ones life. Hence the sneezer was given a passionate "God bless you" by the people of the time since many thought the poor soul had little time to live. Also the word EXPIRE originally meant EXHALE and somehow there became a correlation between death (expire) and sneezing.

East Asian cultures perceived sneezes as a sign someone was talking about the person behind their back. They further embellished upon this:

1 sneeze - something good is being said.
2 sneezes - something bad is being said.
3 sneezes - that person is in love.
Multiple sneezes - they are catching a cold, go figure!

Whatever your thoughts about sneezing I say enjoy life! Sneeze loudly, proudly, and to the fullest!

Quarterback Soup

Boy the Titans-Dolphins game today was probably one of the ugliest games I ever watched. The Titans put on a very anemic performance in their 29-17 loss to Miami. Kerry Collins went out early with an injury and Vince Young just did not look sharp at all. The big news of the week, Randy Moss, only caught one pass for 26 yards. Yeah, I know, Moss has only been there a week and Young has essentially had no practice time with him.......sigh.

I really did not expect Randy Moss would break any records at first. It was my hope that he would take some of the focus away from Chris Johnson and in fact, Johnson had a 117 yard performance, but it wasn't enough. The most embarrassing thing is that the fish beat the Titans defense with their 3rd string quarterback. Chad Pennington and Chad Henne both went out with injuries leaving the Dolphins with Tyler Thigpen who I think under the circumstances was outstanding. Quarterbacks were dropping like flies today in Miami.

The Colts won today which puts them in first place in the AFC South. The Titans fall to 5-4 and are tied for second place with Jacksonville. Boy this is not the time of year for the Titans to be playing ugly. If they expect to make the playoffs I'm thinking they are going to have to plan on winning their division. After looking at the rest of the standings in the AFC, I'm thinking the possibility of a wild card spot is not likely.

Things just got a lot tougher in Nashville today. They play the Redskins at home next Sunday. I'm hoping they get things together by then.

An Earmark I Could Support

Sometimes politics just makes my head hurt. Now I'm hearing all this bickering about earmarks, mostly from Republicans. Some say earmarks represent nothing more than pork barrel spending and are nothing more than bribes designed to result in arm twisting to convince legislators to vote a certain way.

Earmark supporters say that if congress does not decide to spend money with earmarks then the spending decisions will fall to the executive branch.

WHAT? I just don't get it. It seems like there is just a big pile of OUR MONEY just sitting there waiting to be spent and a big fight going on all the time over who is going to spend it and on what.

Hey, I have a novel idea. Let's just NOT SPEND IT AT ALL. What say just GIVE IT BACK to the taxpayers or at least start paying off the national debt with it? That's right! Let's have the money EARMARKED to be given back to the taxpayers! Now that's an earmark I could support. What am I missing? Could someone explain it to me?

Morbid Strangers Rock the River

The Morbid Strangers rocked the River Lounge to the foundation last night. It was their grand opening and it was a big success. The place was packed. I don't think another person would have fitted in the place and I guarantee you everyone was having a GREAT time! I don't know when the band has had so much fun.
Check out all our latest pictures HERE. As usual the newest pictures are at the end of the set.

Something Stinks

So just what was that mysterious plume off the Southern California coast? There has been speculation from many that is was a missle, but NASA and the Pentagon say no, it was most likely a plane.

I'm looking at these pictures and I gotta say that if it's a plane it is certainly flying in the most unusual of attitudes, like almost straight up!

Last time I checked there are very few planes that can fly straight up. Maybe an F-15 or an F-16, but certainly not an airliner. And it seems like I remember someone saying there was no radar evidence of planes in the area.

In the area are two islands, San Clemente and San Nicolas Islands. Both are owned by the US Navy and both have been used as weapons and missile test facilities. Hmmmmm.

Now you know I don't trust the gubment just one little bit and I just am not buying the argument of a plane. I've seem lots of contrails in my 58 years, and I'm telling you, that's no contrail.

So what is it? I have a few ideas:

1. Some type of ACCIDENTAL launch by our friendly US Navy. Perhaps something of such a nature that the gubment wants to cover it up.

2. An actual test by our military of some type of weapon. I find this explanation a lot less likely than the first. If it were some kind of big secret, why would they have launched it where they did?

3. AND THIS IS THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO! A submarine launched missile by a foreign gubment, launched near our territorial waters in an area where it could be easily seen, JUST TO EMBARRASS US AND JUST TO PISS US OFF! Who could do this? The Russians? The Chinese? I even thought about the North Koreans. Does North Korea have such a submarine? Do we really know?

Of course our gubment is denying it is a missile. They don't want to admit a sub could slip in so close. So suppose this was a North Korean sub. We think North Korea has a few nukes. Think of the implications to our national security. Scary huh?

Ok, think I'm nuts? Got any better ideas?

Remember Our Veterans

Let's all just spend a few minutes today to remember our veterans from wars and conflicts past. We are a great and free country today. Were it not for average everyday people and their families who sacrificed and sometimes died down through history we might be living under some tyrannical dictator. Heck we might even still be British subjects, you never know.

Thanks all you veterans and thanks to all our current active duty and reserve service men and woman who are protecting us right now.

Thank you God for shining your holy light on our country.

GROUCH's Gubment Spending Solution

Well, overly tanned speaker-to-be, John Boehner has declared that a first step toward reducing federal gubment spending would be to cut the salaries received by lawmakers.

Although this would make only a microscopic difference in the grand scheme of things I certainly cannot disagree with his idea. In fact I think we ought to put congress under the same rules that hospitals are forced to play under by Medicare, notably "pay for performance". Hospitals are required to meet all sorts of quality rules and criteria. Those that "perform" are paid more. Those that fall short are punished and penalized.

In the case of congress it seems that based on their performance, they should be required to PAY US if they want to stay in Warshington and pass stupid intrusive laws. PAY FOR PERFORMANCE!

Alas I digress...... Remember last winter when there was a big snow storm in Warshington DC? As I recall, for a period of time, all "nonessential" gubment employees were told to stay home until the snow storm was over. Well in my attempt to reduce gubment spending, it only makes sense to me that these "nonessential" gubment employees should be told to stay home PERMANENTLY!

After all, they are nonessential aren't they? Times are tough. The gubment has no money. Why do we continue to pay them? Give them the boot and tell them to go find real jobs. I could easily apply the same logic at the state and local level.

Yes, I am a cruel, heartless, SOB of a fiscal conservative.

Just Cut My Throat, PLEASE!

I'm not going to elaborate on the details of this story. WARNING it is disgusting! If you wanna read about it, click:

Now that you're back, I gotta say that as for me, she'd just have to cut my throat.

Moss is a Titan

Well I think the Tennessee Titans took a big leap in their recent acquisition of wide receiver, Randy Moss. I guess he's pretty good......948 receptions, 14778 yards, 153 TD's.... not too shabby. He seems to be one of those guys who you just send out, lay the ball up there, and much of the time he'll make the catch against all odds.

I know Moss has the reputation of being somewhat of a smartass. Tennessee has had their share of those in the likes of Pacman Jones and Albert Haynesworth. Will he work out? Time will tell.

The Titans have the potential to really be great. They have the best running back in the game, Chris Johnson, and his backup Javon Ringer is pretty dang good too. Wide receiver, Kenny Britt, had an outstanding performance 2 weekends ago but now is plagued with hamstring problems. Enter Randy Moss.

I dunno if he'll make it with the Titans or not. They have a bye week coming up and a little extra time to work with him. I just have a sneeking suspicion we may be in for some excitement.

For all you Dog Lovers

Here is a comical contribution from my friend Keri.

He's a Martyr Now

Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.

The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.

''This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now.''

''Yes, I remember him as a baby'' says the other mother cheerfully.

"He's a martyr now though" the mother confides.

"Oh, so sad dear'' says the other.

''And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21.''

''Oh, I remember him,'' says the other happily, ''he had such curly hair when he was born.''

''He's a martyr too'' says the mother quietly..

''Oh, gracious me .. . . '' says the other.

''And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.

He would have been 18'', she whispers.

"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, ''I remember when he first started school''

''He's a martyr also,'' says the mother, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, finally says . . .

"They blow up so fast, don't they?"

Jail Humor

There was a most amusing letter to the editor of our local newspaper this week. Sometimes you just gotta smile. Here it is:

I have been incarcerated at the Decatur County Detention Center. There isn't even enough food to fill you up at breakfast or lunch. We don't even get all the food groups. We don't get any juice, milk, or fruit. I don't know what kind of peanut butter that is served. We eat the same thing over and over. Most of the time, the bread is hard. I know that we are inmates. But I feel as though we should still have decent meals. The food isn't even warm when we get it. The chips and crackers are always stale. Some of the people in the jail are not even guilty. They are just waiting for their arraignment. I know that some of us are in jail, but we are human beings as well. Everyone deserves good nutrition.

Thank You


Well, I'm not one to let a crisis go to waste so here is my letter to the editor this week:

I could not help notice the letter last week regarding "inmate nutrition". Unfortunately, if it were up to me the inmates would have more to worry about than nutrition.

Rather than construct a fine new jail with all the modern conveniences, I would have erected an electrified fence around several acres of farmland. Inside the enclosure we would have tents and some kind of stove for warmth in the winter. In the summer, the inmates could get healthy by sweating in their racks on those hot July nights. We could let them grow their own food in gardens thereby saving the county lots of extra money and think how healthy all those fruits and veggies would be. Plenty of mosquito repellent and fresh water for everyone would be a must.

Now I bet if the county had followed my plan we could have had extra room for a lot more prisoners at much lower cost and we probably would not have had to impose that dreaded wheel tax in the first place to pay for a new jail.

You think I'm kidding? You think I'm crazy? Well check out sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ. Sheriff Joe runs a prison camp similar to the one I described and it seems to work just fine for the people of Arizona. When prisoners complain, sheriff Joe has been heard to say, "If you don't like the facilities, don't come back."

Repeal Obamacare Now?

Speaker-to-Be, John Boehner has now jumped on the bandwagon and vowed to repeal Obamacare. Sweet Wifey let us know last night that Mitch McConnell has made the same pledge. Big words indeed, but is there any substance there? And truthfully we have to admit that there is almost zero chance of repealing Obamacare as long as Hussein is president. Defunding at least probably parts of the program is most likely the best that can be done in the next 2 years.

Let's face it boys and girls. Boehner and McConnell are establishment Republicans. They just can't wait to cross the aisle and work with Dimocrats to "get things done for the American people". They have in fact said so even before the last election and then quickly backpedaled when met with teaparty outrage. I figure what will really happen is some kind of a "compromise" plan that looks good on paper but in reality solves nothing and spends just as much money............and the establishment Republicans will be running around shouting. "We fixed it! We fixed it!"

Hmmm, I just don't trust anybody with a tan like that. I really hope I'm wrong.

Rub our Noses in It

Nothing like a big fresh pile! Ahhhh the steam coming off of it! The green flies swarming! And oh that heavenly aroma! And then someone comes along and tries to rub our nose in it!

What is so damned important in India that Imam in Chief, Hussein Obama has to spend 200 million dollars per day of our money to go there? Why does he have to stay in the Taj Hotel? Motel 6 would do just fine doncha think? Why does he need to take 34 warships?

What is it he is going to do when he gets there? Here's one article stating the trip will improve "strategic ties" between the two countries.


GREAT! So I guess we can look forward to improved "technical supports" after his visit.

Does anyone really think that Obama actually "got it" after the election Tuesday? 200 million dollars per day......sigh.............boy I could buy a lot of fishing stuff and guitars with that kind of loot.

Why don't you make a real important first step toward cutting spending, Mr. President? STAY HOME!

Michele Bachmann Plows Ahead

Here's some exciting news, Michele Bachmann, R-MN. is planning on running for a GOP leadership position in the House of Representatives, specifically  the GOP Conference Chair.

If you have not been keeping up, this woman is a rock ribbed conservative, not the typical wishy washy establishment Republican that so many of us are sick of.

Heck I'd like to see her be Speaker of the House. I am not really thrilled about John Boehner. I kinda think he is just more of the same and has already been talking about "working with the president".

I hope more like Bachmann will step up and lead us in the right direction. She ain't bad looking either.

Electoral Up's and Down's

Well last night was indeed a big night for the GOP. They took back the House and they made big gains in the Senate. As with any war you usually lose some of the battles. Sweet wifey and I spent most of the time last night watching some of the 15 or so episodes of Jay Leno we had stored on the DVR and then another exciting episode of Sons of Anarchy, what a GREAT show.
Between recordings we'd listen to Fox News for a few minutes to grab an update.

The Thrill of Victory:

The biggest thrill for me was not just the takeover of the House but the fact that Witch in Charge, Nancy Pelosi, will no longer be speaker. If the GOP had only grabbed a 1 seat majority it would have been worth it just to see her go. I hope they throw a bucket of water on her on the way our the door and watch her melt.

I was also delighted to see Marco Rubio's defeat of Charlie Crist down in Florida. Crist is the most two faced lying scumbag of a politician that I have seen come along in a very long time. He would do or say anything just to get elected. Unfortunately there are a bunch more just like him lurking in the sewers of the Republican establishment. We need to root them out and get rid of them.

The Agony of Defeat
The biggest disappointment for me was the fact that the winged monkey, Harry Reid, managed to hang on to his Senate seat. This guy is a disgrace to the Senate and is a disgrace as an American.

"This war is lost." is a comment he made that put him in the same boat with Hanoi Jane Fonda as far as I am concerned.

It is hard for me to understand how any thinking person could vote for him, but it is what it is. I guess for now he'll stay on as Senate majority leader.......what a joke. Maybe in 2012 we can reduce him to minority status and at the same time remove Hussein Obama.......YEA!

As I was saying on Facebook earlier, "Sons of Anarchy, green apple martinis, and a GOP victory.......good things come in threes!"
