Shepard Smith Pees His Pants on National TV

Well, that's not exactly the story but it never fails that if there is a car chase going on somewhere, Fox News' Shepard Smith will cut away from whatever is going on to report about it. I do believe he gets so excited over a car chase that he no doubt pees all over himself.

Well, Thursday, a car chase jumped up to bite him on the ass when the person being chased got out of the car and committed suicide on camera. Smith immediately apologized and admitted he was wrong.

Shep, what is the NATIONAL significance of a car chase? Why are you reporting on this at all? Seems to me there are more pressing things going on in the world. I read somewhere that the other news networks did not even bother to report this. Fox News needs to get a clue.

So Shepard Smith has apologized. Wanna make any bets that when the next car chase comes along, things will be back to business as usual?

The Worldwide Redistribution of Your Wealth

Yes, it could happen my friends and if Obama is re-elected it might be very likely. The United Nations wants to impose taxes on a global scale. They want a tax on all currency trading in US Dollars, the Euro, the Japanese Yen and the British Pound Sterling. They want a "tiny" tax on all financial transactions. Of course there are new taxes on carbon emissions to combat the hoax of man made global warming, and lets not forget a 1 percent tax on all those EVIL billionaires.

Of course the purpose of all this is to take wealth from the prosperous countries of the world (mainly the US) and DISTRIBUTE it to the poorer countries of the world. Hey, I thought we already did that. It's called FOREIGN AID. But it would be so much better if tin pot dictators were in charge of the distribution than our own lunkhead politicians.

I know many of you are shaking your heads thinking this could never happen, but if the messiah is elected for a second term, I'm not so sure. Obama already thinks we should be a second class nation and that we should no longer be the super power of the world. I can easily see him turning over the distribution of wealth (he believes in wealth distribution) over to the thugs at the UN. If he is in his lame duck second term, he would probably just make it happen by executive order and nobody would call him or challenge him on it.

Just something to consider my friends.

The REFS are Back in Town

I recorded the NFL game last Thursday night between the Ravens and the Browns. This was the first game following the lockout of the usual NFL officials. I'm telling you I thought for a minute the players, coaches, and refs, were all going to start hugging and kissing. There were smiles, handshakes, and obligatory butt pats galore.

The game seemed to go well, indeed at a much better pace than some of the games with the replacement refs. The officials made sharp and decisive calls. There was no head scratching and looking at one another trying to decipher the correct call. All in all, it was a refreshing change. Yes, it is nice to watch people who apparently know what the hell they are doing.

I'm sure we are looking at a short honeymoon phase. Before too long the regular refs will be back to their usual position of derision. All it will take is a couple of "questionable" calls and things will be back to normal. Such is life and such is football.

The Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle.'

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with."
Stolen off of Facebook.

The GROUCH Goes to Jail

I keep reading about how the UN is wanting the US to pass laws making it a crime to criticize a religion. Of course this applies only to Islam. If you're a Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, or a member of the church of What's Happening Now, the prohibition does not apply.

Perhaps it is just me, but I think any religion that advocates crashing airplanes into buildings inhabited by innocent civilians and strapping bombs to their women and children needs to be criticized just a little, doncha think?

Well I guess they're just gonna have to fix me up a nice little cell, cause I ain't gonna shut up. I can get 3 squares a day and gubment funded healthcare for FREE! I can be one of the TAKERS for a change! Yeah Baby!

Typical Obama Voter

Still wanna vote for Obama? You're in great company with this intelligent, well informed voter.

The Significance of E3

I was just looking at the military people directly attending the remains of the Americans killed in Libya. They all appear to be E3's.

The sharp looking marines are all lance corporals (E3).

The sharp looking sailors are wearing the rank of seaman (E3). I was just wondering if there was some significance to this? Does anybody know?

Whatever the reason, if there is one, our servicemen look mighty sharp, doncha think?

The Watcher’s Council Nominations – September Song Edition


Ah, September!
It’s one of the more interesting months, somehow not quite summer but not quite Autumn.It’s a transition month between the two, a time for ramping things up as we head for the year’s end. And that’s never more true than in an election year.
The conventions, watched by one of the smallest audiences ever are over and done with, as Americans begin, as they historically do, to pay close attention to the elections.
In spite of a massive campaign by the media to convince the American people that the campaign is over and Barack Obama is headed towards re-election, the real, uncooked numbers suggest otherwise and the election pretty much remains a dead heat, and likely will until the debates.I guarantee you, a lot more people will be watching the debates than the conventions.

Allen West, Truth, Justice, and the American Way!

It's easy to get down in the dumps listening to Hussein Obama and the endless drivel from the chunks of human debris at the Democrat convention.

I stole this video from sweet Wifey. Set aside 18 minutes of your life and watch to the whole thing. You'll be uplifted and glad you did. Why is this man not facing Hussein Obama in November? Sadly we are stuck with another untrustworthy RINO. It is what it is. Please watch:

RINO REMINDER


Senator Lamar Alexander is the traitorous senator from Tennessee who voted to confirm the racist judge, Sonya Sotomayor. Never again will I vote for Lamar Alexander. He is not up for re-election until 2014, but I intend to post this reminder each and every month until then. I hope he either resigns or they run a true conservative against him in the primary. I challenge my fellow bloggers to do the same if you have RINO's in your state that need to go. I may add my other senator, Bob Corker, to this reminder. I'm waiting for him to cross the aisle again and work with Dimocrats.

It is with sadness that I have added my congresswoman, Marsha Blackburn to the RINO Reminder list. She voted for the BOEHNER bill and has voted to raise the debt ceiling, thereby COMPROMISING and selling us out to the Dimocrats and the establishment Republicans. I have let congresswoman Blackburn know that I am looking forward to voting for a primary challenger against her in 2012. I hope there is one.
