When Sanny Claus Becomes Nanny Claus

I always thought it was the responsibility of the head of the household to determine what material things could be afforded by the family and adjust budgets accordingly. I would assume that would apply to Christmas shopping as well. If times are tight then, well, you just don't spend as much. You might have to tell the little kiddies that you just can't afford to pay Santa Claus as much as you did last year. In fact I remember when I was a kid that was the tactic my parents used to explain to me that Christmas presents were not free. My Momma used to tell me that Daddy would have to figure out a way to "pay Santa Claus". So from my very early remembrances I was under the impression that nothing in life, including Christmas, is free. Of course the other alternative is the gubment model of taking your piece of plastic and incurring enormous debt that probably won't be paid off before next year's Christmas.

Well, now I have discovered that personal responsibility for the family debt has been removed from the breadwinner and instead has been assigned to Santa Clause himself. Students of the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, Michigan are being taught to "lower children's expectations in the economic downturn"

"They should also take a look at the children's parents and 'size them up' before promising them something that their mother and father can't afford."

This is a very sad commentary on the state of life in these United States here in 2011. In the first place we have all these little entitlement minded kids running around wanting this, that, and the other thing, thinking that money grows on trees. Well it's no wonder when you look at the behavior of the glorious federal gubment. And then you have wimpy parents that don't have the stones to explain to little Johnny that perhaps we can't afford to pay Santa Claus for his platinum covered, diamond studded new game controller this year. No, instead all these tough decisions are going to be left up to good old Santa Claus.

Here's a good one:

"The school has also been advising its pupils on how to deal with such questions as: 'Can you bring my daddy a job?'"

My answer, "Fire Hussein Obama!" Wow! Santa Claus school would be a snap for me.

I guess I didn't even know there was such a thing as a Santa Claus school. In fact I never even considered making a career as a Santa Claus. We had better be careful because some of the mainstream institutions of higher learning may start offering degrees in "Santa Claus". And of course we'll have more whining from the alumni that they can't find a job or pay back their student loans along with those that majored in Basket Weaving and Urban Studies in Upper Volta. 

Boys and girls, when Santa Claus is tasked with making our financial decisions, we are in serious trouble. By the way, just in case you forgot, you can celebrate the birth of Jesus for FREE! Won't cost you a thing!

Don't Masturbate on Your Laptop or Cell Phone

The quest by the left never ends as they attempt to vilify our cell phones and now our laptop computers as a health hazard. Of course the ultimate goal is creation of more frivolous lawsuits for shyster lawyers and more regulation and TAXES on our electronic devices by gubment.

The latest nonsense comes from Argentina where they placed semen samples UNDERNEATH A LAPTOP COMPUTER and then got on the internet. Their contention is that electromagnetic radiation from the WIFI transmitter in the computer inactivated the sperm and that sperm located some distance away from the laptop remained viable. Of course the so called conclusion is that placing a laptop on your lap will zap your sperm. They mentioned the same effect from cell phone signals.

Now I don't know how many of you have noticed, but most laptops get pretty warm on the bottom. In fact my old dead Compaq had vents that blew hot air out the bottom. If anything is deactivating the sperm I would guess the HEAT from the computer might be the culprit rather than any radio frequency energy. Besides, if you're trying to impregnate your significant other, are you going to bop your baloney underneath your computer, collect it, and then artificially inseminate her? Besides that, the WIFI signal from a computer is of very low power, just a few milliwatts, and a completely different frequency from a cell phone signal which is by the way much more powerful. After all, the phone has to make it all the way to a cell tower while the computer just has to make it to your wireless enabled modem.

Anyway, I just had a GREAT idea. We could save millions of dollars on vasectomies, tubal ligations, condoms, birth control pills, and unwanted pregnancies. Just stick your cell phone between your legs for about half an hour before you do the dirty deed. Problem solved. I believe I will petition the gubment for a couple of million dollars to study my alternative birth control solution.

Get Your New Poo Tattoo

If you're a regular reader of GROUCH, you'll know that I don't care much for tattoos. No, I basically think it is stupid and a bad life choice to permanently plaster some hideous image on your body. No, I don't give a rat's ass about your need to express yourself.

So this dude who is a tattoo artist apparently got pissed off at his girlfriend who is into bad life choices. She wanted him to tattoo some kind of scene from the Narnia Trilogy on her back. Now my first question is why would anyone in their right mind want that nonsense tattooed on their back? Alas, I digress.......

Well, the tattoo artist was angry cause he found out his girlfriend had been cheating on him. Instead he tattooed a big, steaming pile of poo, complete with swarming flies on her backside.

Of course she was outraged and is suing for damages. Actually I think it is pretty funny and I don't feel a bit sorry for her. This is the risk you run when you make poor life choices. Bwaa Haa Haa.

Go HERE to read all about it.
Green Bottle Fly.....Fresh poo! Yum! Chomp chomp!

Fox News Channel is Not Required

The leader of the Looney Facebook Liberals gets easily frustrated with me when he can't defend his positions in the face of truth and logic, and true to form begins to launch personal attacks. Today, for the second time in fact, he accused me of getting ALL of my information from Fox News. I asked him how did he know I watched Fox News. He said he could just tell by the comments I made.

This comment is very revealing about liberals. It tells me that THEY get ALL of their information either from the network news or one of those bastions of balanced reporting such as MSNBC. I am sure some of them visit the looney blogs like Daily KOS or the Huffington Post. In any case, they go to these places and immediately latch on to the same ridiculous left wing talking points. It is actually pretty obvious since they all spout pretty much the same thing. Anyone with half a brain that took the time to research the truth would soon realize that most of those liberal talking points are nothing but a load of crap.

I let them know today that I actually watched Fox News very little. During the week I only watch the last 20 minutes of Special Report with Bret Baier (the "panel"). I go there to listen to Charles Krauthammer and they always have one or two liberal commentators as well. Tonight I believe in addition to Krauthammer they had one from the Washington Post (slanted liberal rag) and the New York Times (another slanted liberal rag). Hmmmmm, seems pretty balanced to me.

On Saturday I catch Fox News Watch which has 4 commentators, 2 liberal and 2 "conservative" (I use the term conservative advisedly) as I am usually a lot more conservative than the people on Fox News. On Sunday I watch Chris Wallace's panel.

That is pretty much all I watch on FNC. I can't stand Hannity. Bill O'Reilly is a big windbag that just likes to hear himself talk. I never have cared for Greta. Shepard Smith is a joke that pisses his pants every time there is a car chase. So, no, there is not much on Fox News that catches my interest. I get most of my information from the internet after reading many articles per day from various news sources.

I think what really aggravates the Looney Facebook Liberals is that I don't have to have some place feeding me daily talking talking points and telling me what to think. I think it just blow their minds that I REALLY believe what I believe without any help from the outside.

They often get very perplexed that I will rip Republicans often more viciously than Democrats. One thing that really aggravates the hell out of the liberals is when they hurl a personal attack at me, instead of responding, I'll just click the "like" button on their comment. It drives them nuts that I like their insults. Oh, it is just so much fun pissing off liberals! Yea!

Bye, Bye, Barney

Barney Frank will not run for another term in the US House of Representatives. Good! It will mark the end of one of the most disgraceful politicians in the history of this country. The Facebook liberals squall and wring their hands and try to blame our financial woes on George W. Bush and his "2 wars" and they attack me when I point out that their friend Barney, along with Chris Dodd and Bill Clinton are the culprits that forced the banks to loan money to people who had no hope of paying it back. Finally the crash came. The housing market collapsed. The banks collapsed. The gubment scurried and spent billions of dollars propping up the banks. The economy soon followed, collapsing like a house of cards followed by Obama's failed 800 billion porkulous package.........more debt.......more lost jobs.......further collapse. And our old pal, Barney Frank is right at the center of the whole mess. So long Barney, don't let the door hitcha where the good Lord splitcha!

More Medicare "CUTS". Let's Just Push Old Folks Off a Cliff

Well, here is Medicare's latest attempt to "save" money. The edict has come down from on high that if a Medicare patient is readmitted to the hospital with the same diagnosis within 30 days, the hospital will be paid NOTHING for the admission. It is hard for me to comprehend the logic behind this. I guess the gubment is saying we should have fixed them the first time and if they come back again, they just won't pay.

The problem here is that when dealing with very old and very sick people who have compromised immune systems and very little "reserve" it is entirely possible to come down with the same ailment within a very short period of time. For instance, if a demented, total care nursing home patient is treated and cured of a pneumonia. That same patient may aspirate a week later and once again develop a life threatening pneumonia requiring hospitalization. It is simply nobody's fault. That is just the way it is.

Now I am also told that if a Medicare patient is readmitted within 30 days for ANY reason, cuts will be made to the hospital. I had some trouble finding out the exact amounts of the cuts but I was told it would be a "percentage" of the normal payment. In other words if a Medicare patient is treated for pneumonia and finally discharged and then 2 weeks later, the same patient comes back in and is admitted with a urinary tract infection, the hospital will be penalized by a "percentage" of its normal reimbursement.

Well, I am sorry to say but the ones that will ultimately suffer will be the Medicare patients. These patients requiring readmission will fall under closer and closer scrutiny. Doctors will be pressured more and more NOT to readmit these patients. Sadly, some of these old folks will fall through the cracks and will die because of this. Might as well just push grandma and grandpa off the cliff. It's just another form of death panels that tries to shift the blame to doctors and hospitals.

Other victims will be struggling hospitals, some which will have to close. They just won't be able to provide free care to the masses. Also many doctors will retire or otherwise bail out of Medicare. When all this happens, the burden will once again be shifted back to the seniors. You can have the best insurance in the world and it won't matter if there is no doctor or hospital to take care of you.

I can't think of any other private industry which is required by the federal gubment to provide free services to the masses. It is the worst form of Fascism.

How would you feel if one day you went to your 40 hour a week job and your boss told you that you'd now be required by the gubment to work 10 of those hours for free? Well, this is exactly what we are facing in the heath care industry today.

A Nice Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving weekend was pretty good at the GROUCH mansion. I worked at the chamber of horrors 24 hours Thursday, but I spent most of Friday on the couch, relaxing, watching re-run football. Thank goodness for DVR's. How did we ever get along without technology? Saturday was enjoyable as we went to Hensley mansion in Perry County to enjoy Thanksgiving vittles with the Morbid Strangers. Later on the band played on in to the night as we prepared for our December gigs.
A great time was had by all, especially our drummer, Reece.

Today we were visited by my daughter, Amanda, her significant other, Jason, and my grandson, Nicholas. Once again we had a fine meal of fresh caught, Tennessee River largemouth bass, caught and cleaned by the GROUCH and tastefully prepared by sweet Wifey. To the delight of everyone, the Tennessee Titans actually won their football game against the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Well, they made it back to Nashville OK and I am once again at the chamber of horrors working a night shift. All and all it was a very good Thanksgiving weekend. Go HERE to see our family pictures.

The TRUE Story of Thanksgiving

Kick back, relax, and listen to the TRUE story of Thanksgiving like you've probably never heard it before.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all from the friendly Grouch at Right Truth.

I am thankful for God, country, my family, including my sweet puppy, my job, my rock-n-roll band, my good friends, and the river.

I hope your day today will be a good one and that tomorrow will be even better.

More Jesus Hatred, and our Troops Suffer

Well, not only do Tim Tebow and his Christian friends suffer from Jesus hatred but apparently so do our brave troops fighting for us in Afghanistan. A cross was taken down at a base chapel to the chagrin of many brave soldiers.

What is really strange to me is that we don't have a real clear understanding of exactly why the cross was taken down. According to some of the troops, no Muslims had complained and in fact there were two mosques on the base. Also Jews had recently conducted services in the chapel and there were no complaints from them.

Here are some of the responses of the soldiers about the cross incident:

“We are here away from our families, and the chapel is the one place that feels like home,” a service member at Camp Marmal told POLITICO. “With the cross on the outside, it is a constant reminder for all of us that Jesus is here for us.”

“Not having it there is really upsetting,” added another. “I walk by the chapel daily on the way to chow and the gym, and seeing the cross is a daily reminder of my faith and what Jesus accomplished for me. It is daily inspiration and motivation for me to acknowledge my faith and stay on the right path.”

These people are over there risking their lives for our freedom and they deserve to have every comfort and convenience possible in a war zone, but thanks to another episode of Jesus hatred, their cross has been taken down. I'd be willing to bet a couple of busybody atheists and/or liberals complained and well, you know, we wouldn't want to offend a couple of lunatics.

Now how about that, boys and girls?
Here's a picture of the vile, offensive cross.

Give Obama the Bird!

Russian news babe, Tatyana Limanova flipped our dear leader, Obama the BIRD (middle finger obscene gesture) as she delivered a report about the Asia Pacific Cooperation of which Obama is the former chairman.

The TV station said Limanova would not be punished for her "slip up". Now you know if someone on Fox News had done such a thing, they would have been crucified!

Bwaa Haa Haa! The Russians are flipping off Barack. NASCAR fans are booing Michelle! Life is good!

Why do they Hate Jesus so?

If you're not a football fan you may know nothing of a fellow named Tim Tebow. Tebow is the current quarterback of the Denver Broncos and the former Heisman Trophy winner and QB of the Florida Gators.

Also Tebow is a devout Christian and makes no bones about sharing his faith on and off the field. Now, Jake Plummer, a former QB for the Broncos has gotten his little feeling hurt and has said that he wished Tebow would, "would curb his references to Jesus Christ and his faith".

Tebow responded:

If you're married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife 'I love her' the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and every opportunity?

And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ is that it is the most important thing in my life. So any time I get an opportunity to tell him that I love him or given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I'm gonna take that opportunity. And so I look at it as a relationship that I have with him that I want to give him the honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity. And then right after I give him the honor and glory, I always try to give my teammates the honor and glory.

And to this, Plummer replied:

Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he'd just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he's a winner and I respect that about him. I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, then I think I'll like him a little better. I don't hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff.
"Like you know, I understand dude where you're coming from ... but he is a baller.

So what is it with Jake Plummer? What is it about Tebow's profession of faith that makes Plummer apparently so uncomfortable? Seems as if a lot of people get uncomfortable and downright angry if anyone talks about Jesus. What did Jesus ever do other than leave His perfect heavenly home, come to earth to be tempted in ways we cannot imagine, and allow Himself to be tortured and nailed to a cross to atone for Jake Plummer's and my sins? Oh, yeah, He rose from the dead 3 days later too! And yet He is despised from one end of the earth to the other.

What if Tim Tebow was praying to Allah? Would Jake Plummer say anything? Would anyone open their mouth? Well, you already know the answer to that.

Go HERE to read more about Tim Tebow. Sweet Wifey also had a post about this a couple of days ago. Go HERE to read her nice words.

Base Line Budgeting, The Dirty Little Secret

I couldn't vote for Ron Paul. I agree with him on a lot of stuff, but he's wrong on national security, he's wrong on Israel, and he fails to understand who the enemies of this country are. There has been a lot of screeching and hand wringing over past couple of days concerning the failure of the super committee. I have heard the politicians moan that defense is going to be cut and our national security is in jeopardy.

Ron Paul got it right last night during the CNN debate. He mentioned the term "baseline budgeting" and advised us that there will be no actual cuts in the defense budget. In fact there will be no actual cuts in ANYTHING. The only thing that will happen is a REDUCTION IN THE RATE OF GROWTH. There will be no cuts in defense, no cuts in medicare, no cuts in social security, NO CUTS! NO CUTS! NO CUTS!

With baseline budgeting the amount of money for the federal gubment goes up every year. It never goes down. When we have a "cut", nothing goes down. The rate of gubment growth simple doesn't go up quite as much as it would have otherwise. Back in August when the debt ceiling was raised, alleged cuts were made. What this amounted to was reducing the growth of the deficit over the next 10 years from about 10 trillion dollars to between 7 and 8 trillion dollars. Doesn't sound like any cuts to me, does it to you? To paraphrase Senator Jim DeMint, it's like driving over a cliff at 60 mph rather than at 80 mph.

Why do we seldom hear of baseline budgeting? Well, it's the dirty little secret of Warshington. Nobody in Warshington save for perhaps a few Tea Party legislators want to really cut spending. If the idea of baseline budgeting were actually revealed and understood by the average American voter, there would be absolute outrage against the Warshington establishment over the sham of spending cuts. If we really want spending cuts, lets take the budget back to 2006 levels and live within our means. Seems like we were doing OK in 2006.

So next time you hear one of your liberal friends or establishment Republican friends moaning about their entitlements being cut or the defense budget being cut, ask them how much less the defense or the entitlement budget is going to be from 2012 to 2013 and then ask them to explain to you the concept of baseline budgeting. Watch the glazed look come over their faces.

Shhhhhhhhh! QUIET! Baseline budgeting! It's the dirty little secret!

Bring Back Smoking Sections

Tennessee has a state law prohibiting smoking in any restaurant serving people under 21 years of age (like it is any of the state's bidness). I say GREAT! Lets bring back smoking sections to all restaurants in Tennessee! Yes indeed, there is a place in Jackson called Redbones Grill and Bar. Smoking is allowed in the restaurant. The added benefit to this is that there are NO SCREAMING SNOTTY NOSED LITTLE KIDS! Nobody under 21! What a fabulous idea! You can go in there, get a great meal at a reasonable price, have a smoke if you're so inclined, and not be bothered by a bunch of screeching and screaming, and a family of dweebs sitting there saying, "Oh, isn't she just PRECIOUS?"

No, it's not PRECIOUS!

I hope that every restaurant in the state will follow Redbones lead and re-institute smoking! Well, OK, maybe not McDonalds and Burger King and Chuck E Cheese. I'm not going to be in those places anyway.

Michelle Obama Booed! Oh the Horror!

The looney Facebook liberals were all upset yesterday because their favorite FLOTUS, Michelle Obama was booed at a NASCAR race in Florida. They were just outraged over how disrespectful the whole thing was. It doesn't take much to outrage a liberal, you know.

My friend, Rush Limbaugh, had a very good monologue about the whole thing yesterday. When you read Rush's analysis it is not surprising she was booed.

I've thought about this. Why would people boo the first lady? The media can't believe it. But I can. People don't like be told they're lousy parents, and Mrs. Obama has done that. People resent Mrs. Obama's bizarre need to tell us what to eat and how much to exercise. She also has, let's not forget her husband, Mrs. Obama has a husband that runs around and apologizes for this country that he was elected to lead. Australia the latest example. He went over there and basically apologized for the worthlessness of American students. I'm also pretty sure this crowd is not eager to go out and buy a car that you have to plug in in order to drive. This is a fast car kind of crowd. This is not a Prius, Volt, Leaf, plug it in and charge it for the 40-miles crowd.

Also I might point out people that go to NASCAR races are the very people her husband called bitter clingers. When things aren't going well, what do they do? Why, they cling to their guns, and they cling to their religion. Oh, and there was that trillion dollars for Obama's union and green energy contributors, all of this money that Obama has given to people like Solyndra and all these screwy expenditures, not to mention the fact that her husband has bankrupted the US economy. Oh, and what about Obamacare? You think the people at the NASCAR race might be among the crowd, among the 65 to 70% of the country that wants no part of her husband's health care bill that Moochelle campaigned for? What is so hard to understand about this woman being booed? Only in media capitals could you scratch your head over the fact that the first lady gets booed. Are they still of the belief that the Obamas have 90% approval, that they're loved and adored by everybody, that they're still considered Mr. and Mrs. Messiah?

I'm not a NASCAR fan. I find the whole idea of driving round and round a track about as boring as baseball, basketball, or golf. But I gotta say that if Michelle had attended one of my events, I would have booed her as well. This woman and her communist husband do not deserve my respect.

I'll Have a Steak, Medium Rare, Hold the Screeching and Screaming

Last night, sweet Wifey and I went out for dinner and a movie. We visited Cheddar's, a nice place with good food and good prices. The downside about "good" prices is that they tend to attract the undesirable elements such as snotty, screaming kids.

We were early and for a change, they were not busy. The hostess escorted us past many quiet, empty booths and tables all the way to the back. She proceeded to seat us next to a family and a small, snotty nosed child in a high chair. The kid was already making vile, high pitched noises.

I told the hostess that we would not sit next to this screaming kid and that she needed to place us somewhere else. I said it loud enough that the inconsiderate family with the kid could hear. The hostess gave me the most dirty of looks and I was prepared to tell her we would just go somewhere else.

Instead, she turned and took us back up to one of the empty quiet booths we had previously passed along the way. I told her that this was "much better".

You know, it's MY MONEY. If I'm going to go into a place for a nice meal, I'm not going to pay to be tortured by the screaming of some little brat. Oh, I know, the parents think the little sh*t is JUST PRECIOUS, but I think the little sh*t is ANNOYING AS HELL and the sound is certainly not conducive to good digestion.

It wasn't long before the little brat launched into the FULL SCREECH MODE. In spite of this I noticed the same hostess seat two or three more people in the vicinity of the screecher. I don't get it.

They have outlawed smoking in restaurants I am sure because of the HOAX of the ill health effects of second hand smoke. I want to know why they can't have gubment mandated ADULT ONLY sections in restaurants? Second hand screeching must be a health hazard. There ought to be a law. Perhaps I could apply for a couple million dollars of federal grant money to study the health effects of such vile noises.

I have no understanding or compassion for people that subject me to the guttural screeching of their offspring, There are cures for this problem. It's called BABYSITTERS and TAKEOUT. You know the old saying, "Children should been seen and not heard." Well I happen to think that children should be NOT seen and NOT heard. Just leave them at home. A whole bunch of people in this world do not appreciate your little bundle of joy.

By the time we finished eating, the place had started to fill up and our quiet area had been infiltrated with other little yard apes. Fortunately, we were done before the screeching started.

From Cheddar's we went to see J. Edgar, a very good movie by our old friend, Clint Eastwood. I recommend it highly.

Obama says NO to 200,000 Jobs in Ohio

President Obama's United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing......go HERE to read all about it.

The looney Facebook liberals whine and complain constantly how those evil Republicans care nothing about helping poor working people in America. I pointed out the above article to them and let them know that their boy, Obama blocked 200,000 jobs in Ohio.

Instead of chiming in and bashing Obama for this decision a long period of silence ensued. After a while one of them popped up and told me that I "hated the environment".

It is no wonder that we are in the shape we are in. With liberals in charge, it should be no surprise.

The "Humane" Death Penalty

Well, now here's an interesting slant on the death penalty. A liberal friend of mine is FOR the death penalty. In the same sentence he also says that as a liberal he is most assuredly against cruel and unusual punishment.

His feeling is that sitting locked away in prison for 25 or 30 years is much more cruel than execution by lethal injection. He is willing to allow a period of three years for appeals and then it's needle time.

I must say that I have never thought of the death penalty in this way but when you think about it, it kind of makes sense.

Now, I'm a little different. I'm not much of an anti cruel and unusual punishment sort of guy. I am more of a punishment should fit the crime type person. In fact I could support doing away with the death penalty entirely if the alternative was life in prison under the most horrible of circumstances........working 18 hours a day, in 100 degree heat, making little rocks out of big rocks with a sledge hammer. Now that's REAL punishment!

Since such a prison here in the US will never see the light of day, I am much more accepting of more traditional types of capital punishment such as hanging, the guillotine, and the electric chair. I would be in favor of public executions. Let everyone see what will happen if you murder or rape someone. Hell, put it on TV. Charge admission! Use the proceeds to compensate families of victims.

Oh, GROUCH! You've done it again!

The Cub Scouts

We’ll begin in park somewhere near Washington DC.  The heavily wooded park is owned by the federal government.  Smelling trouble already, aren’t you?  So it seems that yesterday some Scout leader took his little band of six-year-old Cub Scouts to the park to collect some leaves.  The leaves, you see, are changing right now, and some of the colors are beautiful.  The Cub Scouts were going to collect leaves and preserve them for a scrapbook.  As the Scouts are walking along a trail, there being tailed by a federal employee park security guard.  She follows as the Scouts pick up some of the prettier leaves and put them in their little plastic bags.  The security guard is a security and law enforcement professional.  Surely you know that, because, as Tom Dashle told us, “You don’t professionalize until you federalize.”  Finally our stalwart professional drives up to the Cub Scouts, gets out of her car, and orders the Cub Scouts to open their baggies and dump those leaves right back there on the road.  “You can’t take them,” she said.  “This is federal property.”  Now these are Cub Scouts, not occupy protesters, so they do what they are told to do by this symbol of government authority.  As the Cub Scouts (some of them crying) left, the man who told me this story (you would know him, but I’m not going to name him) walked up the professional security guard and said “Hey; is this really worth it?”  She responded in what he describes as a harsh voice – very close to yelling – “This is federal property and those leaves are federal property and those are the rules.” 

Really, folks.  Those are the rules?  What can you say?  These kids were six-years-old.  How do you think they are going to feel on their next encounter with someone in a state or national park – whether it be a security guard or a Park Ranger?  Is this really representative of the quality of employees we are forking over taxpayer dollars to?

What if Sandusky is NOT GUILTY?

So legendary football coach, pedophile, pervert, Jerry Sandusky has been arraigned on sex charges. Well Sandusky has proclaimed that he did nothing wrong. Good grief, did you see his interview with Bob Costas? I thought Costas was going to swallow his tongue.

So everyone is thoroughly outraged and wringing their hands in disgust, but wait, Sandusky has still got to be tried and convicted of his alleged crimes.

What if he is found NOT GUILTY? Well, now, it's not so far fetched. If O.J. and Casey Anthony can get off, anything's possible. I'm not making any predictions, but just brace yourselves for the worst. All you need is a bunch of slick talking shysters and 12 inept dweebs and away you go to freedom to abuse another child another day!

9 Percent Sounds like a Good Deal for Uncle Sam

So General Electric made profits of 14 billion dollars, filled out a tax return of 57,000 pages and paid ZERO taxes? GREAT! Well, now we can't really complain can we? After all they only followed the tax law.

Now if my friend Herman Cain had his way, GE would have filled out a single page tax return and paid 9 percent of 14 billion dollars. Lesse, that comes to about 1.26 billion in taxes. But on the bright side, GE could fire all the overpriced tax lawyers and accountants they paid to create the 57,000 page tax return.

Sounds like a win/win situation to me. Go Herman Cain!

UPDATE - Not to mention the elimination of the IRS as a gubment agency.

What is Wrong with Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh?

I never have been a big Ann Coulter fan. She's loud, shrill, and obnoxious. Not my cup of tea. However, I generally agree with her politically, at least until yesterday. (I just don't like loud, shrill women. I prefer beautiful, gentle, soft spoken women like my sweet Wifey.)

Coulter was all over Fox News yesterday saying how she thought ROMNEY (barf gag) would be the best candidate to go up against Obama. What? Good grief, I could not disagree more. In fact I think Obama would destroy Romney in the general election. Romney has flip flopped and waffled and wavered so many times that it is difficult to determine where he stands on anything. I know he might say some good sounding stuff in the debates, but he's usually contradicting something he said a few months ago. The Obama campaign will latch on to all of this stuff and tear him to shreds. One thing is for sure. Obama is NOT a flip-flopper. You know EXACTLY where he is coming from. He told us that in 2008 and the lamestream media and the establishment Republicans said he would govern from the center. Welcome Obamacare and trillions of dollars of new debt. Lord have mercy, can you imagine Romney standing there in front of Obama talking about repealing Obamacare? It's Romney's plan!

I am kinda thinking that Coulter believes that Romney is going to be the nominee and she is trying to pave a way for herself to support him. I can't believe she thinks he's really the best choice.

Even the liar, crook, two faced Newt Gingrich would be better than Romney. In fact I think Newt would probably mop the floor with Obama in a debate, but what would we really have with a president Newt Gingrich? How can we possibly know?

For many years I have heard my good friend, Rush Limbaugh tell us that winners do not compromise and that we need to stick to our conservative principles. Then in the next sentence he will turn around and tell us that we need to support the Republican nominee against Obama, whoever that turns out to be. I can tell that Rush really does not like Romney. He seems to prefer Gingrich (not a conservative) and Herman Cain. In fact he was hopelessly trying to defend poor Herman's brain freeze on Libya. True to form, Rush will not endorse any primary candidate. I figure he thinks it would make him look bad if that primary candidate did not win.

Sorry Ann, sorry Rush. If the nominee is Romney, I'll sit it out. I won't vote for a RINO. I won't vote for Gingrich. Rush, I am holding true to my conservative principles. Frankly, I don't think Romney would be any better than Obama. He has not given me any hope that he is interested in reducing the size of gubment. He has not given me any hope of meaningful tax reform. We know he believes that man made global warming is real and somewhere down the line will be willing to spend money to fix the hoax. We know he doesn't have problems with individual mandates upon private citizens by the gubment. Where are the differences between Romney and Obama? I have the same misgivings about Newt.

I'm still supporting Herman Cain. I knew from the beginning that Herman was not a politician. I knew his weakness was foreign policy. Herman looked tired and depressed during his brain freeze on Libya. I think the constant pummeling has taken its toll. However, I still believe he is a TRUE conservative and I believe he is smart enough to correct any deficiencies he has in the area of foreign policy. I don't know if he will survive. He's struggling right now. The left and the lame stream media have done a pretty good job of trying to bring him down.

Now the attacks will begin on Gingrich as he soars into the top tier. Of course anyone with half a brain should be able to see what is going on. The left along with the media is once again trying to pick our candidate, the LOSER Romney. Mark my words!

Poop Today = Energy for Tomorrow!

A motorcycle that runs on sewage! That's right! A POOP bike! This is just what I need!

It will only go 45 mph so I'd have to slow down a bit and stick to the back roads. On the plus side, it has a toilet for a seat! Only problem is that I'd have to install a magazine rack and a place for my laptop! Sweet Wifey would agree that with me riding it, there would be an endless supply of fuel!

Dang! What are they gonna think of next? Better living through technology!

433 Million for Obama Donor

Our illegitimate president, Hussein Obama is up to his old tricks once again. This time he has awarded a 433 million, no-bid contract to an outfit called Siga Technologies Inc. which is run by Ronald O. Perelman, one of the richest men in the world and an Obama donor.

The contract is for a smallpox drug. The problem is that there is apparently NO NEED FOR THE DRUG since there is already a smallpox vaccine. There is also speculation that the drug will even work. Go HERE to read all about it.

Doncha just love this picture of the liar in chief? He's got that SCREW YOU look on his face. Yes, he's got the most transparent administration in history.

The Jesus Card



Well, here is another report on the LOONEY FACEBOOK LIBERALS. Trust me folks, it is just the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving.

Well now 2 of these liberals, both women, have accused me of not being a "good Christian". Funny how there are people out there that really don't even know you who think it is their place to lecture you about your morality and your salvation.

I gathered that they developed this opinion when I defended the Republican congress for refusing to go along with lord Obama's "jobs" bill. They decided that I was against the working people of America. I was against "helping the poor". Jesus would want me to help the poor they said. I was more interested in money than helping my fellow man........all of this nonsense simply because I opposed Obama's jobs bill.

Over and over again I explained that we did not have the money for another jobs bill. WE ARE BROKE! Obama's first jobs bill did not work, did not create jobs, and wasted billions of dollars. Indeed, Obama's jobs bill was never intended to pass. It was strictly a political stunt, something with which Obama could bash the Republicans as being heartless and not caring about the American people. Hey it worked! The looney Facebook liberals have swallowed the scam hook, line, and sinker. But, no, none of that made a bit of sense to them. What followed were angry, hate filled, personal attacks.

But they had played the Jesus card and I could not let it go. First I explained that my relationship with Jesus was just fine and only He really knew what was in a person's heart. Then I proceeded to tell the first liberal babe that she was lecturing me on morality and yet she supported a party that sanctioned the murder of millions of unborn innocent children.

She went into an absolute rage and let me know right then and there that she was PRO LIFE! OK, so she's pro life, and yet she supports the Democrat party and its platforms and principles. It doesn't make sense to me. Does it to the rest of you?

The second liberal babe then tried lecturing me about Jesus. (I don't know if either of them are babes. They may look worse than the Sea Hag's cousin). I told the gal that she had no problem lecturing me about the Lord but better not mention His name in a public school or event! OH NO!

From there, the conversation spiraled into more name calling and more personal attacks. I was told that school prayer was UNCONSTITUTIONAL! When did a liberal ever worry about the Constitution before? I was told that there might be Jews or Muslims there that did not want to hear the Christian prayer. Fine! Let them leave the room! What if a Muslim wanted to lead a prayer? Fine! I could leave the room! Of course common sense would dictate that prayer in a school was not an attempt by the government to ESTABLISH a religion. On the contrary, the prohibition of prayer is a violation of free speech. My goodness don't they have things backward?

There was a further decline until finally one of the hags took issue with Don (not his real name) for ever friending me in the first place and that I should be banned. Another said she just could not stand to look at her page when I was on there. One thing is for sure. They go absolutely bananas if you turn race or religion back upon them.

Liberals, they are just beyond comprehension. They call me stupid. I call them gullible, deceived, brainwashed, and completely humorless. Let's look at it on the bright side though folks. Several liberals are absolutely outraged tonight just because of your good friend, the Grouch at Right Truth! Oh what fun!

So if you wanna play the race card or the Jesus card, fine! Just realize if you play it on the Grouch you may be in for quite a ride!
