So long 2010

Today marks the last day of what, if true Americans write the history books, will be billed as the sorriest year in American History. The worst congress ever, the 111th, led by Nancy P Lousy is over now. Tomorrow ushers in a year of hope.
Whether our nation has survived remains in question. A lot of damage was done by the democrat communist machine, worst of all was the ballooning debt to communist China. Unless our industrial might can be restarted, the mounting debt will collapse us.
One step we need to make is requiring every person collecting unemplyment to perform twenty hours of community service per week every week after week twenty. That would accommplish two things. 1. Encourage them to get off their butts and look for work. 2. Support infastructure needs which would lower taxes and utility rates. The key is to limit where they can perform their service to agencies that are tax funded.
Our presnt system sucks. Unemployment insurance is just another tax. After two or three years the money is passed to the state coffers. A person who works continuously for twenty years gets no more benefit then one who works two.
What we need now is real change, not a change in our belief system.

Mildcats in the Roadapple.

The Kansas State football team journeyed from the little Apple to the road apple (a horse turd for you city boys) to play in the Also Ran Bowl part XXX.
I enjoy college football, but these bowl games are getting crazy. 35 various bowls. Everyone gets a piece of the action. To make matters worse, its all corporatized now. The Meineke Car Care Bowl? Comeon Man! The only thing lower is the PinHead Bowl err Pinstripe Bowl! Where K State is playing!
Maybe Meineke Could offer the winning team free lessons in chrome polishing and auto detailing. That way they would have learned ONE useful skill in four plus years of college.
Another thing, why do some locations host so many bowls? Seriously, Arlington Texas / Dallas. The Ticket City bowl is played at the Cotton Bowl! So The Dallas Area hosts three bowls. Thats just plain crazy. Why do five metro areas host multiple bowls?
I guess its all one last chance for the colleges to milk money from these college failures graduates before they turn them lose to be entertainers.
Best of luck K-State. Hope you all win the AlsoRan XXX bowl today.

Update: They lost! Yes I enjoyed the game, yes I mock them. I enjoy watching the sports, I just hate the idea that Many of them get a free ride to college and graduate with a degree in nothing.

Man of the what?

Uselesstoday just released their poll for man of the year. I don't know who they survey, but Barry the Bungler is man of the year for the third straight year in their polls, and Sarah Palin is their top religious news maker.

Well, even though Don Surber won't give him any credit, Barry DID get a slew of republicans elected into the house and senate ending the democrat stranglehold on America.

As for Palin, Who worships her? She is a political figure, maybe a sex symbol for some, but no one worships the ground she walks on. No one attends the church of Sarah Palin. She has not started a new cult, nor does she have a pulpit anywhere. What she did was lead a Political ground swell. I cannot credit her with starting it, bu once she got to the helm, she directed it, and it revitalized the republican party like no other.

The won people worship is Barry, especially blacks in America. His support among african Americans is an anomally when compared to his support among all other demograpjhics. It is skewed because they see only his skin color, not hte damage he is doing to our nation.

That 22% of the idiots they surveyed voted him #1 is astounding. I voted him a number two, as in a useless POS.

Gallup also is crowing about how the lame duck congress took a final shot at revenge on America and passed pro communist antio america legislation. With luck, the house will fund none of it, and after 2012, a frsh republican senate can ocer turn it all.

Lets hope.

Gallop confirmed once again that they are a biased worthless bunch, or at best just another arm of the communists.

Who are they protecting?

The TSA, in true government style has gone after a whistle blower rather then address the problem he uncovered. While the name of the pilot has not been released, enough details of his identity have been to ensure his life is one of harassment.
The unnamed pilot released vids on utube critical of ground security at SFO where air crews and passengers are subjected to harassment beyond reason yet ground crews have access to aircraft with little restriction. After muslim members of ground crews on the east coast were shown to be plotting an attack, one would think the TSA would get their heads out of their asses.
Some one needs to point out to our imposter in chief that muslim men, yes its probably his religion regardless of what he bleats, are the ones attacking America. its not catholic grandmothers, nor Amish school kids, Its muslims.
How about we end the bullshit and start profiling? Yes, I know, muslim converts could look just like you and me. Lets begin with a simple screening system, table one, a ham sandwich or a bacon cheese burger. if you consume them, you pass on into the passenger area with only normal aka a metal detector scan. Any one who turns down the ham sandwich, or picks the bacon off the cheese burger gets the full treatment including body cavity search. Expect Bwahny Fwank to skip the pork products, but it won't be for solidarity with the scum o the earth muslims.

Its Time!

Its time for a new symbol for the Presidential seal. For two centuries, it has been the eagle. Time to replace it with a skunk. He is half white, half black, and everything he tries STINKS!

To All

Merry Christmas. Its been one heck of a year. I found out late last fall that all my wifes illness was mere fakery. As she is on SSI and has been for a long time, it took me a little while to digest that she was scamming me.
Life got better though. She left me. She and her liar err lawyer are attempting to gouge a huge chunk out of my assets. She should be happy with what she got. It cost me several hunderd thousand to find out it was all fake!
2010 has been a year of reconcilliation for me, coming to terms with just how evil a seemingly nice woman can be.
In the next few months, I will be attempting to rebuild my life. Maybe years. A combination of a democrat economy, old age, and everything else is slowing me down just a tad.
Still, I rejoice in the celebration of the birth of Jesus. I am not bent on revenge, I know that GOD will pay her back for her evil in more ways than I ever could.
I'm spending Christmas at homew this year. I was back home for Thanks Giving whe nthe weather was nicer. Minnesota winters can be hard. Last years was.
Mom turns 91 next month. My oldest sister just turned 70, and my youngest brother will be 59. Dang that makes me feel old. All my family are old farts.
I have one remaining aunt and uncle, moms siblings. Not sure how old exactly they are, my uncle says he is only slightly younger then dirt, and is continuall asking his sisters about some uncle named Noah.
All the same, I hope each and every one of you has a great Christmas. may your stocking be filled with treats, the tree surronded by presents, and a years supply of ammo for the new rifle(s).
Oh, and no shooting trophy reindeer off the roof. Ya aint Bubba J.

Don't marry her!

Had a service call this morning. Seems the interconnected smoke alarms at this apartment had been going off all night.
After I located the culprit, I was talking with the tenant. he said that it all started when his girlfriend tried to boil some water.
I told him that if she can't boil water with out incident, don't marry her. The McDonalds bill would bankrupt him.

Oh ME of little faith

I believe in GOD, I trust in him. I do not trust congress. The outgoing crop of criminals is determined to have one last great act of defiance. As they crap out another trillion in debt for my grandkids to bear, I am agast. They do not learn. I know that, but it is still shocking to see in real time. Much like a fatal accident happening in your front yard every week. No matter how many times, its still not pleasant.
We should be getting two years of grid lock, but already the farces of evil are manuvering to create a bipartisan no labels bunch of bull shit.
Will the 112th Congress be any better then the 111th? I have my doubts, too many hold overs. We replaced 63 of em, but that is 372 short of the mark needed for real change.

Modern Indians

Late this fall and the Indians on one of the reservations in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?'

'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.

A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

'Yes,' the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.'

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?'

'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.'

'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, 'The Indians are collecting a shitload of firewood'.

Have fun traveling this holiday season

Welcome Home, boys, TSA "Interrogates" our Soldiers

From E-mail. Too funny? Not one BIT funny.

As the Chalk Leader for my flight home from Afghanistan, I witnessed the following:

When we were on our way back from Afghanistan, we flew out of Baghram Air Field. We went through customs at BAF, full body scanners (no groping), had all of our bags searched, the whole nine yards. Our first stop was Shannon, Ireland to refuel. After that, we had to stop at Indianapolis, Indiana to drop off about 100 folks from the Indiana National Guard. That's where the stupid started.

First, everyone was forced to get off the plane-even though the plane wasn't refueling again. All 330 people got off that plane, rather than let the 100 people from the ING get off. We were filed from the plane to a holding area. No vending machines, no means of escape. Only a male/female latrine.

It's probably important to mention that we were ALL carrying weapons. Everyone was carrying an M4 Carbine (rifle) and some, like me, were also carrying an M9 pistol. Oh, and our gunners had M-240B machine guns. Of course, the weapons weren't loaded. And we had been cleared of all ammo well before we even got to customs at Baghram, then AGAIN at customs.

The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it reinspected. Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area, the TSA decided not to reinspect our Cargo-just to inspect us again: Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected, reinspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever. So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.

This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying pistols.

So we're in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that they're going to confiscate his nail clippers. The conversation went something like this:

TSA Guy: You can't take those on the plane.

Soldier: What? I've had them since we left country.

TSA Guy: You're not suppose to have them.

Soldier: Why?

TSA Guy: They can be used as a weapon.

Soldier: [touches butt stock of the rifle] But this actually is a weapon. And I'm allowed to take it on.

TSA Guy: Yeah but you can't use it to take over the plane. You don't have bullets.

Soldier: And I can take over the plane with nail clippers?

TSA Guy: [awkward silence]

Me: Dude, just give him your damn nail clippers so we can get the blank out of here. I'll buy you a new set.

Soldier: [hands nail clippers to TSA guy, makes it through security]

To top it off, the tsa demanded we all be swabbed for "explosive residue" detection. Everyone failed, [go figure, we just came home from a war zone], because we tested positive for "Gun Powder Residue". Who the blank is hiring these people?

This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns-but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.

Can someone please tell me What the blank happened to OUR country while we were gone?

Adios Infected Dick Sucker

Another porn star whinning about getting AIDS. Boo frickin Hoo. Derrick Burts, a 24 year old porn actor is the latest in a long line of asctors to get HIV. Derrick performed in both straight and gay films, and tested positive in October. he is whinning now demanding mandatory condom usage in all adult films.
Well, when you play with fire some times you get burnt. If you spend a lot of time bed hopping you are equally at risk, and IMHO if you infect some one after being warned, you are guilty of murder.
Derrick supposedly got his from another actor who was known to be infected. Fine, take all the infected ones and corral them into a grop that acts together, but keep them away from ones who aint got it, yet.
The only sure fire way to be sexually active and not risk VD is to stick with one partner. Its a sure fire bet that if you and the love of your life stay faithful, that you won't be visiting the health clinics and getting penicillin over doses.

Nursinghome Sex

Harold is 95 and lives in a Senior Citizen Home.

Every night after dinner, Harold goes to a secluded garden behind the Centre to sit and ponder his accomplishments and long life.

One evening, Mildred, age 87, wanders into the garden. They begin to chat and before they know it, several hours have passed.

After a short lull in their conversation, Harold turns to Mildred and asks, 'Do you know what I miss most of all?'

She asks, 'What?'
'Sex!!' he replies

Mildred exclaims, 'Why you old fart. You couldn't get it up if I held a gun to your head!'

'I know,' Harold says, 'but it would be nice if a woman could just hold it for a while.'

Well, I can oblige,' says Mildred, who unzips his trousers, removes his manhood and proceeds to hold it.
Afterward, they agree to meet secretly each night in the garden where they would sit and talk and Mildred would hold Harold's manhood.

Then one night Harold didn't show up at their usual meeting place. Alarmed, Mildred decided to find Harold and make sure he was O.K.

She walked around the Senior Citizen Home where she found him sitting by the pool with Ethel, another female resident, who was holding Harold's manhood!

Furious, Mildred yelled, 'You two-timing son of a bitch! What does Ethel have that I don't have?'

Old Harold smiled happily and replied, 'Parkinson's!'

Moron Michael Laser

I was going to get to this last night, but work called. Instead I spent the better part of the night helping my son move furniture.

Back to Mike.
His take on the liberal roll of government got me.

The conservative view
• Governments tend to grow like snowballs rolling downhill. We must work to reverse this trend, or the government will expand and intrude on our lives even more than it does now.
True. Our government has overstepped the constitution. In fact, many congress critters have no clue what is in it.
"That government is best which governs least." This means letting the free market do its work without a heavy hand trying to direct or restrain it.
Maybe, maybe not. A government that does not govern allows tyranny. reason is needed, and burrocraps lack that.
The legitimate functions of federal government are to provide national security through a strong defense and to protect individual freedoms.
Add maintain infrastructure that privatization cannot, and you about sum it up.

The liberal view

• Our government's job is to solve problems that private institutions aren't solving – and there's no shortage of problems that need addressing.
Unfortunately, most of the problems were caused by government in the first place.
Large corporations, if unregulated, will do anything to maximize profits. Even the most courageous individual can't prevent corporate abuses; only the government has the power to do that.
Bullshit! Profit and abuse do not go hand in hand. A rising tide raises all boats. Besides, anyone ever notice that the richest thugs own the democrats?
• If the government can help create job opportunities during a time of high unemployment, that's a perfect use of tax dollars.
And if ass holes had wings congress would be flying. If baby IF. Dream on and drink the koolaid, All the bailouts did was funnel money to political funders like Soros.

On racial discrimination, Mike is wrong as well. The great society created by democrats did not give the minorities a hand up, it was just another form of bribery. It empowered thugs, and guaranteed votes. The present system festers like an infected wound for many people. Merit has no place, and smart poor white kids are pushed aside for mediocre minorities. Not to imply that minorities are stupid, there are many high caliber individuals among every race. What too many of the minorities lack is drive and commitment. They get it handed to them rather then work for it, and they do not drive to succeed. In the end, the fail because they did not try.
When the playing field is level, when the contest is color blind, blacks can achieve, but since they are given a hand out over their white peers, they strive less, accomplish less, and create resentment that hurts them, the companies they work for, and the nation as a whole.
Our nation will achieve success on overcoming racial disparity when we address the problem without bias, and quit trying to play favors.

On human nature and justice
The conservative view

• We have the power to choose between right and wrong and are responsible for our choices. Those who violate the law must pay the penalties. Too much leniency results in a culture of disrespect for the law and social disorder.

The liberal view
• Human beings are capable of both selflessness and brutality. Even the best of us is far from perfect. Knowing this, we rely on the rule of law – and ask that justice be tempered with mercy.
Tempering with mercy is one thing, forgetting to punish in any way form or manner is another, and is what is wrong with much of our criminal justice system. When thugs get off scott free, it only encourages them to do it again. What do they have to fear from a system that does nothing. Our justice system collapsed under the Warren court. we need to scrap it and start over.

On America's future
The liberal view

• Most of the world's most successful, prosperous nations are liberal democracies that provide their citizens with a strong safety net. This represents the natural progress of civilization. It's time for us to catch up with northern Europe.
Dude, Northern Europe is in decline. They are long past thee pinnacle of power, and are failing fast aided by islam and their decision to tolerate the intolerable. It was not liberal democracy that made them great, they became liberal democracies after they achieved greatness, and liberalism is destroying them. And US.
I do not have all the answers. I know though that when what we are doing isn't working, that its best to either reverse course, or at least stop the foolishness. Mike, being a typical liberal cannot see it.
My experience is that most liberals are people who have never worked in a real world situation. They are either in some sort of entertainment field, or some other field where individual accomplishment is unheard of such as college professors, bureaucrats, or the health care industry.
Not that all in those field are liberal kooks, many are staunch conservatives. They are an outspoken minority though, and many in the end seek self preservation over ideals.
Mike, get a job. A real one where you have to earn a living by producing something besides words on a computer screen. maybe then you will get a clue.

Nebraskas shot at redemption

Tomorrow is the Big 12 title match pitting #13 Nebraska against #10 Oklahoma. This will be the last championship game they will ever play. Nebraska has a shot at redemption. For too many years, huskers have been forced to bear the burden. No one will tell me when it started, or how or why, but Tomorrow, if the Huskers beat OU, they will finally have the right to take that damn Sooner schooner off their road signs.
Go Big Red

And good fucking riddance.

When you put it like that.....

I guess if you articulate your argument well enough, it will sound plausible to almost anyone. At least Michael Laser thinks so. In his article, he lays out the basic liberal and conservative sides for a number of the polarizing arguments that divide our political land scape, then ends by saying that it is possible for opposites to be true.
Well, its all in how you word the positions. Lets take a look. he begins with what he calls the social safety net. I call it welfare.

The conservative view
• People are responsible for themselves – and, given the chance, they're capable of supporting themselves and their families. If the government makes a practice of providing for people (with welfare, for example), they become dependent and lose their will to work. Nothing could be more destructive to the health of our society.

The liberal view
• There are people in this country who struggle to put food on the table or can't afford medical care. A civilized society would try to help them, instead of leaving them to fend for themselves. (Someday, the one who needs a helping hand may be you, or someone you love.)

Is he right? Even the most hard hearted Scrooge has a soft spot. While he might brush off an adult, he would still offer some kind of aid to a small child. Its human nature (for the most part) to help others who are in need. Most of us will look at an individuals situation and decide if we feel our aid is warranted. If a person claiming to be in need is better off then we are, most of the time we will say NO. Enter the government. They give hand outs like Halloween candy. Every body with a hand out gets a handout, while some of us who work and pay taxes make do with less then the welfarians have. It galls me, and most sane people to see welfare queens in high dollar cloths and talking on expensive cell phones while we struggle. Conservatives and liberals both are generous, the difference is conservative only do so with their own money.
Next up, taxes!
On taxes The liberal view
• We aren't isolated individuals struggling for survival: We live together, in a society. And membership in a society that makes wealth possible comes with obligations. Those who benefit most from our freedoms must contribute their fair share to help support and protect our society.

The conservative view
• Private property means that what belongs to you is yours; if the government confiscates it, that's tyranny. Our most productive citizens – the top 10 percent of earners – already pay 68 percent of taxes collected. These rates should be cut, not raised.

Where is he wrong? In almost all cases, those with wealth worked hard to obtain it, and most of those with out were wasteful, or just plain lazy.

I'll go on more later. When you gloss things over, and deal in vague descriptions, communism sounds great. When you live it in the real world, it sucks. Don't believe me? ask any North Korean Except Lil Kim, or most any Cuban. Miami is full of people who had their fill of eewtopia.
