Boom!!!!!!

JUST A FEW DAYS AGO ANOTHER SUICIDE BOMBER KILLED 13 AMERICAN TROOPS IN KABUL, AFGHANISTAN.  THIS IS JUST ONE IN A LONG STREAM OF CONTINUING ATTACKS NOT ONLY ON OUR BOYS, BUT ON AFGAN AND IRAQI CIVILIANS.  THESE ATTACKS ARE DIRECTED BY FORCES OUTSIDE THE TERRITORIAL CONFINES OF BOTH IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN WITH THE GOVERNMENTS OF IRAN AND PAKISTAN BEING COMPLICIT IN ALMOST ALL ATTACKS AND OUR "GREAT" LEADERS TURN A BLIND EYE.  I'M NOT JUST POINTING THE FINGER AT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, BUT AT THE PREVIOUS BUSH ADMINISTRATION.  IN MY LIFETIME I'M SEEN ATTACKS ON AMERICAN TROOPS FROM SELF-IMPOSED SANCTUARIES AROUND THE WORLD GO UNPUNISHED.  IF THIS IS THE WAY WE FIGHT OUR WARS ITS TIME TO LEAVE THE FIELD TO THE ENEMY.  SANCTUARY SHOULD BE A FORBIDDEN TERM WHEN IT COMING TO OUR FIGHTING MEN AND WE SHOULD GO TO WAR ONLY WHEN WE ARE ABLE TO UNSHACKLE THE FULL MIGHT OF THE U.S.  WAR MACHINE.  OUR LEADERS BOTH PAST AND PRESENT ARE COWARDS AND HAVE BEEN FIGHTING HOT WARS, SOMETIME WITH MORE DIPLOMACY THAN BOMBS.  WE ARE NOW REAPING THE WHIRLWIND OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND THE INSANITY OF SANCTUARY ZONES.  UNLESS WE TAKE OUT THOSE FORCES HIDING IN THE "FORBIDDEN" ZONES WE SHOULD EXPECT THE "BOOMS" TO BECOME LOUDER AND PREPARE FOR THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT THAT COMES FROM WEAKNESS IN THE FACE OF THE ENEMY.  WEAKNESS, NOT FROM OUR BRAVE TROOPS ON THE GROUND, BUT FROM THE VERY LEADERS WHO PUT THEM IN HARMS WAY.

Drinking with David Janssen "The Fugitive"

David Janssen 1931-1980
IN THE LATE 1960's-EARLY 1970's I SPENT MY SUMMER MONTHS IN ACAPULCO, MEXICO.  I WAS SINGLE AND TEACHING AMERICAN HISTORY AT LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL IN AMITE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI.  WAS VERY WILD IN THOSE DAYS AND SPENT AT LEAST TWO MONTHS OF EACH YEAR SOUTH-OF-THE-BORDER, MOSTLY IN  ACAPULCO.  MY FIRST TRIP WAS INSPIRED BY THE OLD ELVIS MOVIE "FUN IN ACAPULCO" WHICH CAME OUT IN 1963 AND WAS FILMED IN ACAPULCO AROUND THE OLD "ACAPULCO HILTON".  I KNEW WHEN I FIRST SAW THE FILM THAT ONE DAY I WOULD SWIM IN THAT HILTON POOL WHERE ELVIS WAS.  THUS, MY FIRST TRIP TO THAT CITY IN 1966. SEVERAL YEARS LATER ON ONE OF WHAT WOULD BECOME AN ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE I MET THREE CANADIANS GUYS FROM TORONTO. WE BECAME GOOD FRIENDS AND PLANNED OUR FUTURE TRIPS TO THAT GREAT TOWN. 

TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, AND IT IS A LONG STORY, ON ONE TRIP WE HAD BEEN SEEING SOME STEWARDESSES WHO WORKED FOR QANTAS AIRLINES.  THEY WOULD OFTEN FLY DOWN FROM SAN FRANCISCO ON THE WEEKEND AND SPEND A FEW DAYS WITH US AT OUR "A"FRAME CABIN ACROSS FROM THE BEACH.  ON A TRIP TO THE AIRPORT TO PICK THE GIRLS UP DAVID, JOHN, EUGENE (MY CANADIAN FRIENDS, AND I WERE SITTING IN THE AIRPORT LOUNGE WAITING FOR THEIR FLIGHT TO COME IN.  I LOOKED AT A SOLITARY MAN SITTING AT THE BAR AND TOLD MY FRIENDS THAT WAS DAVID JANSSEN--THEY DIDN'T THINK SO.  I GOT UP AND WALKED OVER TO THE MAN AND POLITELY ASKED HIM IF HE WAS "DAVID JANSSEN" AND TO MY SURPRISE HE SAID YES, AND INVITED ME TO SIT AND HAVE A DRINK.  WE HAVE SEVERAL OVER ABOUT A 30 MINUTE PERIOD AND THEN PARTED COMPANY.  YES, I DRANK WITH DAVID JANSSEN.  NEXT WEEK WE WERE BACK AT THE AIRPORT SEEING THE GIRLS OFF AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE TONY CURTIS AND DAVID WERE AT THE BAR. I APPROACHED THE TWO, DAVID REMEMBERED ME, BUT OTHER THAN INTRODUCING ME TO TONY GAVE ME LITTLE TIME. ON OUR RETURN TRIP TO TOWN FROM THE AIRPORT WE STOPPED AT THE PEMEX STATION TO GAS UP AND SAW DAVID AND TONY WITH TWO VERY YOUNG MEXICAN GIRLS GASSING UP THEIR VAN---I KNEW THEN WHY HE DIDN'T HAVE TIME FOR ME AT THE AIRPORT LOUNGE!!! 

STRANGELY OF ALL THE EVENTS ON THE TRIP, INCLUDING THE MANY NIGHTS AT THE "ZONA ROJO" MEETING DAVID JANSSEN AND HAVING THOSE DRINKS WITH "THE FUGITIVE" IS THE ONE THAT STANDS OUT.

For those who are not old enough to remember "The Fugitive" TV series was the most popular of its day from 1963-'67.  The 1993 movie "The Fugitive" with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones was based entirely on that series from the 1960's.  And in case you may be wondering how a lowly teacher could afford those months in Mexico---the "A-frame" on the beach rented for $300 a month--split 4 ways came out for less than $3 a day for the 4 of us.  Beer was less than 50 centavos when the rate of exchange was 12.5 pecos to a dollar, that comes out to about $.04 cent per beer when purchased at the "Super-Super" their big super market.  And as for the cost of certain unnamed products in the "zona roja" (the red light district) I'll leave that to your imagination! And we always avoided the "tourista" traps, but occasionally did stumble into that dreaded "TOURISTA" better known as "Montezuma's revenge" or to you who are uninformed "diarrhea"!

Imperialist Pigs, No Cheering Crowds

Cartoon by Nate Beeler
IF ANY OF YOU THINK THOSE CAMEL JOCKEYS IN THE NEAR EAST AND MIDDLE EAST LOVE US OR EVEN LIKE US JUST A LITTLE YOU'RE AS DUMB AS THE MOUSE WHO TRIED TO RIDE ON THE CATS BACK. THIS IS WHAT WE'LL GET THE DAY WE EXIT IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.  WHAT A WASTE OF MEN, TIME AND TREASURE!  THE CHEERING CROWDS THAT GREETED US WHEN WILL KICKED OUT SADDAM HUSSEIN WILL BE CHEERING OUT EXIT.  WE DID THE DIRTY WORK AND NOW THEY ARE READY TO BRUSH US ASIDE AND GET ON WITH THEIR ISLAMIC FANATICISM---THAT'S THE LATEST FADE SWEEPING THE MIDDLE EAST, ITS THE ARAB SPRING---DEMOCRACY MY ASS!  NEXT TIME WE SHOULD JUST NUKE THE BASTARDS AND BE DONE WITH THEM.  NATION BUILDING ON CAMEL DUNG IS NOT POSSIBLE.
Just a historical footnote: It was the American progressive movement that cheered on the Russian Revolution, it was the American progressive movement that cheered on the the grand Fascist movement in Italy under Benito Mussolini and finally the same bunch cheered the rise of National Socialism in Germany under Adolf Hitler until he turned his guns on their bevoved communist Russia. And now the same folks are cheering on the forces of the Arab Spring, ha!

Border Moat


This is a story long overdue. Dateline Austin, Texas, January 22, 2012: ground was broke today on a new border security project. This will entail digging a 2100 mile long trench 17 feet deep and 500 feet wide from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, Ca. The dirt from the massive trench will be trucked to New Orleans and used to raise the hundreds of miles of levees surrounding that city, which sets below sea level. Additionally, once the trench is filled with water as estimated 250,000 alligators will be relocated from Florida (where they have become a nuisance) to the 2,100 mile long moat. This massive project which will solve the border problem, the Florida alligator problem, and the levee problem of New Orleans is the brain child of a young 12 year old girl from the small town of Hot Coffee, Mississippi. President Herman Cain is awarding the young girl "The Presidential Medal of Freedom", the nations highest civilian honor, at a special White House ceremony this coming Monday. The ceremony will be attended by former presidents Bill Clinton, H.W. Bush, and G.W. Bush. Vice President Marco Rubio will also attend the event. Former president Barack H. Obama is currently vacationing in Kenya and will not attend.  He had no comment when asked about the moat.

Fences and the Liberal Elite

MINUTEMAN FENCE ON MEXICAN BORDER
THIS FENCE WAS CONSTRUCTED BY THE MINUTEMEN SOME YEARS AGO IN ARIZONA TO HELP KEEP ILLEGALS IMMIGRANTS OUT OF THIS COUNTRY.  THE HOLLYWOOD ELITE OPPOSE IT AND ALL SUCH FENCES AND BARRIERS ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER OF THIS COUNTRY.
WEST BANK FENCE IN ISRAEL
THIS FENCE SITS ON THE WEST BANK IN WHAT WAS JORDAN, BEFORE THE SIX-DAY WAR AND WAS TAKEN BY ISRAEL AFTER JORDAN JOINED WITH EGYPT AND SYRIA IN THE WAR EFFORT AGAINST ISRAEL.  THE FENCE WAS BUILT TO KEEP OUT SUICIDE BOMBERS WHO WERE KILLING HUNDREDS OF ISRAELI WOMEN AND CHILDREN.  THE HOLLYWOOD ELITE OPPOSE THIS FENCE.
HOLLYWOOD FENCE

AND FINALLY WE HAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL FENCE CONSTRUCTED BY THOSE WHO HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS AND SIT SAFELY BEHIND THIS ORNATE  IRON AND STONE BARRIER.  A BARRIER NOT JUST TO PROTECT PRIVACY, BUT TO KEEP OUT THE INSANITY THEY HAVE TRIED TO IMPOSE ON THE REST OF THE WORLD.  YES, THIS IS THE FENCE OF THE HOLLYWOOD ELITE.  A FENCE THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU TO CROSS.

Iraq Withdrawal, Victory or A Disaster Just Over the Horizon!

Cartoon by A.F. "Tony" Branco H/T to ARRA NEWS SERVICE
OBAMA DID FULFILL HIS CAMPAIGN PLEDGE AND ALL TROOPS WILL BE OUT OF IRAQ BY THE END OF THIS YEAR AND THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WILL SEE THEIR LOVED ONES COMING HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND THAT IS GREAT.  THE QUESTION, HOWEVER IS AT WHAT PRICE?  WILL IRAN RUSH IN AND FILL THE VACUUM LEFT IN IRAQ BY OUT TOTAL WITHDRAWAL? THAT WOULD BE A DISASTER ON A GRAND SCALE.  IMAGINE THE OIL FIELDS OF IRAQ COMING UNDER CONTROL OF THE MAD MEN IN IRAN. IMAGINE THE SPREAD OF RADICAL IRANIAN ISLAMISM THROUGHOUT THAT REGION AND PERHAPS EVEN INTO SAUDI ARABIA AND THOSE GREAT OIL FIELDS COMING UNDER IRANIAN DOMINATION. WAR ON A MASSIVE SCALE WOULD ERUPT AND THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST WOULD GO UP IN FLAMES FANNED BY OUR WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ---WOULD THAT BE A VICTORY? SADLY WE MUST HAVE THE OIL FROM THAT PART OF THE WORLD ESPECIALLY BECAUSE VAST AREAS IN NORTH AMERICA HAVE BEEN PUT OFF-LIMITS FOR DRILLING.  WE CANNOT AFFORD $10 A GALLON GASOLINE---OUR ALREADY FRAGILE ECONOMY WOULD COLLAPSE UNDER THE WEIGHT OF SOARING ENERGY PRICES  AND A LARGER WAR WOULD BE FORCED ON US AGAIN LIKE IT OR NOT. 
TODAY MANY MAY CHEER THE WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ, BUT I SUSPECT THOSE CHEERING CROWDS WILL BE SILENCED BY FUTURE EVENTS RESULTING FROM AN INAPT FOREIGN POLICY OF AN AMERICAN REGIME THAT IS INCAPABLE OF PLAYING ON THE WORLD STAGE.

"All Rise" My Ass!

 
Remember the last time you were in a courtroom and heard those words "all rise" as the grand figure in the flowing black robe ascended the throne. Probably like most you stood, saying to yourself, its the court, its the law , its the office that I'm showing respect for. Your were wrong by standing you were showing your subservience to the government. By standing you were recognizing the governments seat and not the People's seat as Scott Brown would say.

Do you need to be reminded about this, you're damn right. Because after Brown's shattering win in Massachusetts the President said this in an interview when asked about Brown's victory, I'm paraphrasing: "Brown's victory came because I didn't explain my positions clearly, I was unable to get my point across to the American people". Really mister President, we didn't understand, we were just to dumb to figure out what you were saying, we were just some dumb truck-driving rednecks who didn't comprehend you beautiful flowing words. Mister did it ever cross your mind that maybe, just maybe we weren't buying what you were selling. You arrogant pompous ass, don't act like the two bit car salesman who storms backs into his office after failing to move that rust-bucket off the lot, all the while blaming the stupid customer for not taking advantage of the super deal he was offered.

Mister President you are like that figure in the long flowing robe, who expects everyone to stand when he walks into the room. Well sir, this American will no longer bow at the altar of government. You sir, are the servant and we are the masters and should you never forget that we can boot you out. For the seat you occupy is not yours, its only on loan for, it is the "people's seat". "All Rise", my ass!

This needed to be said again from as earlier post!  We treat our judges and politicians like European royalty---it time to change that, it's way past time to change that.

This is a National Disgrace, Shame on America!

Cartoon by Michael Ramirez
OBAMA IS NOT JUST A LIAR, BUT A GD CROOK.  HE IS STEALING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS EACH DAY FROM THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS FOR HIS PERSONAL USE.  AIRFORCE ONE AND THAT DAMN CANADIAN BUS ARE BEING USED FOR HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN WHICH IS IN FULL SWING.  SHAME ON YOU BARACK, SHAME ON MOST OF THE POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON WHO DO THE SAME THING BUT NOT ON THE GRAND SCALE OF CHICAGO CROOK IN THE WHITE HOUSE.  BUT MOST OF ALL SHAME ON ALL OF US FOR LETTING HIM GET AWAY WITH THIS THEFT AND CRIME. SHAME ON AMERICA!

Can You Believe What You See, Mississippi Rattlesnake

RECENTLY I RECEIVED AN EMAIL CONTAINING THIS IMAGE OF A RATTLESNAKE THAT WAS SUPPOSEDLY KILLED NEAR THE TOWN OF HOT COFFEE, MS.  I RESEARCHED IT AND IT DOES APPEAR THAT THE IMAGE MAY BE FAKED OR EXAGGERATED SOME.  THE OLD SAYING "BELIEVE NOTHING YOU HEAR AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT YOU SEE" IS MORE TRUE TODAY THAT WHEN ORIGINALLY SAID.  THAT ASIDE, I'VE LIVED IN MISSISSIPPI MOST MY LIFE AND HAVE ONLY COME ACROSS  ONE RATTLESNAKE THAT APPROACHED THE 6' RANGE.  I RECALL AS A YOUNG TEENAGER SEEING AN OLD PHOTO OF SUCH A SNAKE TAKEN BY AN ARMY RESERVIST AT CAMP SHELBY NEAR HATTIESBURG, IN THE 1950'S,  OF A SNAKE VERY SIMILAR TO THE ONE ABOVE.  DOES THE FACT THAT THIS IMAGE MAY BE A FAKE MEAN THAT NO SUCH SNAKES LIKE THIS EXIST IN THE WOODS OF THE SOUTHEASTERN PART OF THIS COUNTRY?  OF COURSE NOT!  ONE SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL TO CONFIRM OR DENY THE EXISTANCE OF SUCH CREATURES.  IN THIS MODERN DAY WE ARE OFTEN TO QUICK TO POINT OUT THE FLAWS AND INCONSISTANCES OF SOMETHING AND THEREBY DENY THE REALITY OF WHAT MAY BE A TRUTH.  FINALLY, I WOULD SAY,  WHEN IN THE WOODS "WATCH WHERE YOU STEP"!  REMEMBER, YOU ARE ALWAYS IN THE WOODS!!!

THE MAKERS AND TAKERS, AND THE "ME GENERATION"

Cartoon by A.F. "Tony" Branco
WHEN I WAS A CHILD I DEPENDED ON MY PARENTS. THEY PRODUCED AND I TOOK. THEY HOPED ONE DAY I COULD STAND ON MY OWN SO I COULD DO THE SAME FOR THE MY CHILDREN AS THEY DID FOR ME.  IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY UNTIL THE (ME! ME! ME! AND THE YOU-OWE ME) GENERATION CAME ALONG.  TODAY, HOWEVER WE HAVE A GENERATION OF CHILDREN (GROWN CHILDREN) WHO HAVE NOT LEARNED THIS LESSON AND LOOK TO THEIR PARENTS OR TO THE GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE FOR THEM ALL THEIR SORRY LIFE.   THEY SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE AND WANT IT WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT.  IN MANY WAYS ITS OUR FAULT BECAUSE WE HAVE GIVEN OUR KIDS THE THINGS WE DIDN'T HAVE.  WE HAVE NOT SET A GOOD EXAMPLE AND ARE NOW REAPING THE WHIRLWIND.  SADLY, THERE ARE MANY POLITICAL LEADERS WHO FEED ON THESE LAZY BUMS FOR THE VOTES THEY CAN GARNER BY PROMISING TO GIVE AND GIVE TO THESE GOOD-FOR-NOTHINGS.  I DON'T KNOW WHICH OF THE TWO IS THE WORST!
H/T to ARRA News Service for the above image.
FROM THE GREAT GENERATION TO THE "ME" GENERATION! WHAT A FRICKING MESS AND POLITICIANS LIKE OBAMA AND HIS PROGRESSIVE FRIENDS ARE ENCOURAGING IT.

WE THOUGHT WE HAD THE "LOST GENERATION" IN THE 1920's, BUT TODAY'S YOUTH ARE THE WINNERS GOING AWAY!

TIMES GONE BY WHEN MEN WERE MEN AND NOT SOME 30 YEAR OLDS STILL CLINGING TO THEIR MOMMY'S TIT AND WAITING FOR AN ALL-POWERFUL GOVERNMENT TO GIVE THEM WHAT THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO EARN FOR THEMSELVES.

I'm 76 and Tired

Occasionally I get an email that worthy of posting and this one falls into that category.  The email said this was written by Bill Cosby, but after a short search I found that not to be the case, but was authored by one Robert Hall, a blogger.  When I saw the term "national service" the red flags went up.  Nevertheless, I'm posting anyway---after all it's the words and not the writers name that counts.
I'm 76 and Tired

I'm 76. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.     
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 76.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

China Conquers the United States of America

SHORTLY AFTER 8AM EDT ON A NOT TOO DISTANT DAY ALL COMMERCIAL BROADCASTING OUTLETS IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA WENT OFF THE AIR FOR SOME 30 MINUTES.  WHEN THE SIGNALS WERE RESTORED ALL STATIONS CARRIED THE SAME MESSAGE AND IMAGE:
AS THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA'S FLAG WAS SEEN ON EVERY TV SCREEN IN AMERICA A CALM, REASSURING VOICE WAS HEARD SPEAKING PERFECT ENGLISH TELLING ALL AMERICANS TO BE CALM AND THAT NO GREAT CHANGES WOULD COME INTO THEIR LIVES.  FIRST THE VOICE PROCLAIMED THAT THE COUNTRY'S BELOVED PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA WOULD REMAIN IN OFFICE AND THAT  ALL AMERICANS WOULD HAVE JOBS BECAUSE THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC WAS FORGIVING AMERICA'S FOREIGN DEBT AND IMMEDIATELY PLEDGING 4 TRILLION DOLLARS TO REBUILD AMERICA'S CRUMBLING INTRASTRUCTURE THEREBY PUTTING OVER 13 MILLION PEOPLE TO WORK WITHIN THE MONTH.  ALL WOULD HAVE FREE EDUCATION INCLUDING HIGHER EDUCATION.  THE VOICE PROCLAIMED THAT NO PERSON WOULD GO HUNGRY IN THE NEW AMERICA AND THAT ALL CITIZENS WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO FREE HEALTH CARE. NEXT MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES WOULD HAVE THEIR MONEY AND PROPERTY CONFISCATED AND REDISTRIBUTED TO THE PEOPLE.  SHELTER WOULD BE PROVIDED TO THE HOMELESS IN THOSE SPACIOUS HOMES OF THE RICH. FREE ELECTIONS WOULD CONTINUE AND BE OPEN TO THOSE POLITICAL PARTIES THAT SUPPORT "PEOPLES RIGHTS AND WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION".  ALL FIREARMS MUST BE TURNED IN TO THOSE IN AUTHORITY FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD AND FOR PUBLIC SAFETY.  RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS WILL BE ALLOWED AND EVEN ENCOURAGED, BUT NOT IN PUBLIC PLACES.  ALL PRIVATELY OWNED BANKS AND CORPORATIONS WOULD BE PUT UNDER GOVERNMENT CONTROL SO THEY COULD BETTER SERVE THE PEOPLE'S NEEDS.  THE NYC STOCK EXCHANGE WOULD BE CLOSED TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM INDIVIDUAL GREED. FINALLY THE REASSURING VOICE STATED THAT AMERICA COULD  KEEP ITS FLAG ALTHOUGH THE MILITARY WOULD BE DISBANDED AND REPLACED WITH A VOLUNTEER FORCE TO ASSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY. 

MOST IN THE COUNTRY WERE SHOCKED AND STRICKEN WITH GRIEF, BUT SOME, MORE THAT ONE MIGHT EXPECT CHEERED THE NEW ORDER.  YES THOSE ON THE AMERICAN LEFT HAD ACHIEVED THEIR GOALS AND THERE WAS JOY ON THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO AND THE BERKELEY CAMPUS.  ELSEWHERE THERE WERE WHISPERS OF BETRAYAL.  HAD SOMEONE ORDERED AMERICA'S ARMED FORCES TO STAND DOWN?  HAD THE PRESIDENT SEEING HIS PROSPECTS OF RE-ELECTION DIMMED DECIDED THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE HIS AGENDA?  QUESTIONS WITHOUT ANSWERS AS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYED ON ALL CHANNELS.  YES THE FLAG WAS STILL THERE AS FRANCIS SCOTT KEY WROTE LONG AGO, BUT THE FREEDOMS THAT WENT WITH IT WERE GONE!!!!!!

OBAMA WOKE EARLY ON THE MORNING OF NOVEMBER 7, 2012 AND THOUGHT "WHAT A DREAM" BUT THEN THE REALITY OF THE DAY SUDDENLY HIT HIM, THE NIGHT BEFORE HE HAD GONE DOWN TO DEFEAT IN A LANDSIDE ELECTION AND WAS NOW A "LAME DUCK".  SLOWLY HE REACHED FOR THE PHONE ON THE NIGHT STAND NEXT TO HIS BED AND CALLED HIS SECERTARY IN THE OFFICE BELOW.  THE VOICE ON THE OTHER END SAID, "MR PRESIDENT, HOW MAY I HELP YOU"?  OBAMA IS A CALM VOICE REPLIED, "GET ME THE CHINESE PREMIER"!  HE DREAM WAS OVER, BUT THE NIGHTMARE HAD BEGUN.

The Cain Mutiny

Cartoon by Michael Ramirez
AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT THAT HERMAN CAIN IS THE FLAVOR OF THE DAY, HE SAY "BLACK WALNUT".  PERSONALLY, I LIKE CAIN, BUT I'M NOT YET IN HIS CAMP.  LIKE MANY OF THE PUNDITS I'M NOT SURE HE IS ELECTABLE.  THE ONE THING I FIRMLY BELIEVE IS THAT ANY OF THE CURRENT FIELD IS FAR BETTER THAT THE MAN THAT CURRENTLY SITS AT 1600 PA AVE. I HAVE ONE GOAL IN THIS UPCOMING ELECTION AND THAT IS TO

Wall Street Protest---The Voices of the American Left

For a number of weeks now we have watched the unruly mobs around Wall Street in the nations largest city. And seen similar protest in scattered cities throughout the nation. This is nothing new the "Voices on the Left" have been around for a long time. I've seen conservative speakers taunted and literally run from the podiums at some of our most prestigious universities. I've seen the marches in Oakland in support of a cop-killers. And now I'm watching the Wall Street protesters.  Most of these hateful demonstrators seem to be young. To me, its a sad commentary on the youth of this country. They claim to support change and openness, but simply cannot tolerate anyone with an opposing view. They condemn a capitalism system, that has provided them with one of the worlds highest standard of living. The United States economy is the envy of the world and people are literally tearing down fences in order to get here. Yet these misguided souls see only evil and corruption here. They listen to their I-pods and text on their blackberries about how bad things are. They look to socialism with the foolish belief that a system such as that will make their lives better, forgetting that it never has worked well in any country. Western Europe being the best example---higher unemployment, lower economic growth and millions trying to come to the U.S. for a better way of life. Youth is often a time spent in search of something new and different, a search for the exotic to show ones Independence, and a time to toss aside traditional values. Most will in time outgrow these adolescent tendencies, some however will be in that rut for their entire lives and that is sad. We can to some degree, excuse the ideologies embraced by some of the youth of this country, we cannot excuse or condone the rudeness and violence they display toward those who disagree. This cannot be allowed to continue---to do so,would in the end, mean the destruction of our democratic system. A free and open exchange of ideas is a necessary part of our system. As for those mature adults, that participate in these disruptions of our freedom of speech, I have little use for them. Theirs are the tactics of hate and a new form of fascism not seen since the days of Nazi Germany.

Occupy Wall Street Protest and Anti-Israeli and Anti-American Sentiments

Anti-Israeli Sign at Current "Occupy Wall Street Protest
SOME IN THE MSM SEEMED TO BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND THE MESSAGE OF WALL STREET PROTESTERS.  DAY AFTER DAY I HEAR THEM SOUNDING STRANGELY PERPLEXED AS TO THE MOTIVES OF THE UNRULY CROWDS.  THE REALITY IS THIS; THEY KNOW WHAT IS MOTIVATING THESE PROTESTERS, THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO TELL YOU.  THESE PROTESTERS ARE ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-ISRAEL, ANTI-CAPITALISM---IN SHORT THEY ARE HARD CORE SOCIALIST AND DARE I SAY COMMUNIST.  THERE IS NO MYSTERY HERE!  THEY WOULD DESTROY THE AMERICA OF OUR FATHERS AND INSTALL WHAT THEY BELIEVE WOULD BE A SOCIALIST UTOPIA.  THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR JOBS, THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR A HAND UP; BUT RATHER A HANDOUT FROM AN ALL-POWERFUL GOVERNMENT THEY WOULD INSTALL SHOULD THEY HAVE THEIR WAY.  THESE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE A PRODUCT OF OUR AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES THAT ARE CONTROLLED BY THE 1960'S RADICAL HATE AMERICA CROWD.  A CROWD THAT OUR CURRENT, ONE-TERM PRESIDENT, FITS NICELY INTO.

Rick Perry's "Niggerhead" Place

ITS QUITE STRANGE THAT AN OBSCURE ROCK LAYING FLAT ON THE GROUND IN WEST TEXAS HAS GAINED SUCH PUBLIC ATTENTION.  NO ITS NOT THE ROCK ITSELF, BUT WHAT WAS PAINTED ON IT MANY YEARS AGO "NIGGERHEAD".  NO PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND OF THIS ROCK, BUT I HAVE NO DOUBTS ABOUT ITS EXISTENCE.  "NIGGERHEADS" OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT CAN BE FOUND ALL OVER THE WORLD.   CHECK OUT THIS LINK FOR A PARTIAL LIST Niggerhead Places Around the World .  THE SIMPLE TRUTH HERE IS ITS NOT THE OLD ROCK, BUT THE MAN LOOSELY CONNECTED TO THE ROCK, NAMELY A REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT ONE RICK PERRY GOVERNOR OF TEXAS.  WAS PERRY AWARE OF WHAT WAS WRITTEN ON THE ROCK?  WAS HE AWARE THAT THE NAME HAD BE PAINTED OVER?  YES, TO BOTH!  THE TRUTH HERE IS THIS WAS A HIT PIECE AIMED AT DISCREDITING SOMEONE WHO MAY RUN AGAINST BARACK OBAMA IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.  IF THE ROCK IN QUESTION HAD "NEGROHEAD OR EVEN BLACKHEAD" PAINTED ON IT THE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME.  ITS NOT ABOUT WHAT WAS PAINTED ON THE ROCK, BUT ABOUT PAINTING RICK PERRY AS A RACIST!!!!

The Middle Finger, A Short History

The History of the Middle Finger

Well, now......here's something I never knew before, and now that I know it, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hope that they, too, will feel edified.

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers. Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapable of fighting in the future. This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as 'plucking the yew' (or 'pluck yew').

Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and they began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, See, we can still pluck yew! Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentals fricative F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute! It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as 'giving the bird.'

IT IS STILL AN APPROPRIATE SALUTE TO THE FRENCH TODAY!

And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing.

LSU Football---Geaux Tigers


LSU  EYE OF THE TIGER
IT'S A FALL SATURDAY AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS THE NAME OF THE GAME IN THE RUSSELL HOUSE.  SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW THAT I'M A BIG, BIG LSU FAN.  IT GOES BACK TO MY DAYS AS A YOUNGSTER WHEN MY DAD, WHO ATTENDED LSU ON THE GI BILL FOLLOWING WWII.  HE TOOK ME TO MY FIRST LSU GAME IN TIGER STADIUM (VISITING TEAMS CALL IT "DEATH VALLEY") AND IT IS THAT FOR MANY TEAMS.  I SAW THE GREAT Y.A. TITTLE AND BILLY CANNON PLAY AND REMEMBER LISTENING TO THE GAMES MY DAD AND I COULD NOT ATTEND ON THE RADIO.

YEP, ITS THAT TIME AGAIN AND FOR THIS LOUISIANA BOY WHO WALKS IN HIS FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS (ALTHOUGH HE NEVER FILL THEM) I AM REVISITING MY YOUTH AND WATCHING LSU PLAY KENTUCKY.  THIS WEEK MY TIGERS ARE RANKED NO. 1 IN THE NATION.  FRANKLY IT SCARES ME, BUT EACH WEEK I LOOK FORWARD TO SEE THEM TAKE THE FIELD.

WISH MY DAD COULD BE HERE TO WATCH HIS BELOVED TIGERS, BUT THEN I LIKE TO THINK HE IS WATCHING FROM THAT HIGH PERCH ON THE 50 YARD LINE.
GO TIGERS OR AS THEY SAY IN BATON ROUGE
