John Cusack Calls for 'Satanic Death' of anyone he doesn't like...but mostly Fox News and GOP leaders

So Much For All That "Constructive Dialogue" Obama Was Supposed To Be Ushering In...

Actor John Cusack went on a caustic Twitter rampage Sunday evening, attacking former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Fox News.


Who gives a rats pitute WHAT Johnny Boy says?

The single reason his vitriolic spew deserves ANY ink is in gauging the absolutely desperate situation today's liberals find themselves in. Their anointed one is proving to be terrible at everything except Vacationing, the loons will be losing control of Congress soon, and there is a leadership vacuum big enough to fly the starship Enterprise through.

Of course those big-hearted, touchy-feely, sweet tree-huggers are going stark raving mad. Like ALL spoiled rotten kids, when they don't get their way they resort to full frontal tantrum.

I pity them, I really do.

For a second, imagine if a prominent Conservative Blogger did something similar. Janet Napolitano would ask that his or her name be placed upon a watch-list for inciting terrorism. Nancy Pelosi would want an immediate investigation into whomever was funding such hatefulness. Hells bells, but Hillary Clinton might even be prompted to apologize to the U.N.

Hey wait a minute...I thought that once women got to be in charge things would be different...

Not important. For now. But John Cusack isn't a Conservative, he's as leftwing a loony as they get. So there's no clarion call for his head on a platter. Wanna know why?

Because he is of no danger to himself or anyone else. He's just a fella who let his temper get the better of him, and spoke without stopping to think. WE understand this. WE realize that the last person on God's green earth who might cause grievous harm to anyone would be such a person. Liberals scream and rant and threaten all the livelong day. They have severe management issues, and part of the reason for this is due to the fact that they know full well that they won't be held accountable for simply exercising a Constitutional right to free speech.

As it should be. After all, the wars we fight are for everyone right's, not just those we agree with. The very fact that a Cusack can act like a spoiled child means America remains the land of the Free. I mean, geez I despise the little frig but let him rant.

But back to the liberal point of view. THEY start all of these lists because THEY are in constant fear. Janet and Nancy and Hillary are on a gravytrain that has nothing to do with having any talent other than being a convincing enough liar to get people to listen. Like John Cusack is. But Little John can go batshit one day and earn $10 million dollars the next because he's a BETTER liar than they are, and lots and lots of gals will pay through the nose to watch him lie.

Janet and Nancy and Hillary worry that the money boat will sail on the next tide if too many people get the word out. So when people THEY disagree with start talking, then THEY start a'squawking. I pity them too. Imagine having to live like that. Incapable of earning a single honest dollar, fearful that their extravagant lifestyles will disappear in a NY second should too many people get wind of the truth.

It's just around the corner. Come November, we'll elect enough decent people that by this time next year Nancy and Hillary and Janet will be forced to work for EVERYONE in America, not just the John Cusack's.

Funniest Captioned Pic Of The Month

There should be a thought balloon over the President’s head that says, “WTF? If Michelle’s ass fit through the gate, why won’t this umbrella?”
Courtesy of I Hate The Media

Not that I condone poking fun at Lady Michelle. Not even when, to respectfully make mention, of the fact that her dress looks like something last seen at the Ringling Brothers Clown College For Women. Betcha, just betcha, that there's a small seemingly innocuous flower on the strap to her of course sleeveless dress that squirts water.

All I'll Say About Glenn Beck's Soiree

The crowd itself included veterans, parents, disabled Americans, people of all ages and – contrary to some criticism leveled against the rally – attendees of many races and ethnicities.
Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union based in Washington, D.C., for example, stood on the platform with Alveda King as she recalled her uncle Martin Luther King Jr.'s historic "I Have a Dream" speech. 

Before the multitudes assembled Alveda King proclaimed, "If Uncle Martin could be here today … he would surely remind us that as brothers and sisters, united by one blood in one single race, the human race, we are called to honor God and to love each other." 

To tell you the truth, Glenn Beck sometimes sort of weirdo's me out. Then again, my spiritual beliefs  are private and personal so it isn't all that unusual for the likes of me to be taken aback by the likes of someone wearing a religion on his arm.

The bottom line is that half a million people, of all shapes, sizes, ethnicity's, and races, had a rally for America and Americans, then left the place cleaner than they found it.

When Barry's lovers attended his far smaller inaugural party to usher in the era of hate-America-first and revive racism whenever possible, they came close to forever destroying the mall area and most of its surroundings.

Americans build stuff. Liberals destroy things. And not for nothing but is there ANYTHING cuter than a sweet little girl waving an American flag...

Firing Up The Wayback Machine: Ancestors Of The Brady Bunch Banned.....

August 30, 1146
A conference of European leaders outlawed the crossbow. By banning such an effective weapon, it was believed that the leaders had ended wars for all time.

See. Don't need as stupid an organization as the United Nations in order to do stupid things. 

Particularly when one is speaking about Europe.

Or Chicago. All of Ill-Annoy for that matter. Or New York City. Or Washington, D.C.. Or Los Angeles. Let's not forget New Jersey.

Wall Street Journal Latest Politically Correct Entity To Re-Write History: "Proposed Mosque Not At Ground Zero"

The Wall Street Journal is the latest news organization to announce it'll avoid using the oft-repeated phrase "Ground Zero Mosque" when describing Park51, a proposed Islamic community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan.

The Journal's Paul Martin, who writes the paper's Style & Substance blog, described the guidelines on Monday.

"Although the phrase 'Ground Zero mosque' has become ubiquitous in the media, we should avoid the imprecise term whenever possible outside of quoted material," Martin wrote. (The decision follows a discussion between Martin and deputy managing editor Matt Murray).

Difficult to understand how something calling itself The Wall Street Journal would not know that of course the Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse was part and parcel to Ground Zero. It was damaged during the attack, and click here for a closer look.

Yet another commie rag I won't be reading again any time soon.

Drunk baboons plague Cape Town's exclusive suburbs

Groot Constantia, in the heart of Cape Town's wine country, can deal with inebriated holidaymakers – but it is invading baboons which have developed a taste for its grapes that the wine makers are struggling with.
Each day, dozens of Cape Baboons gather to strip the ancient vines – the sauvignon blanc grapes are a particular favourite – before heading into the mountains to sleep. A few, who sample fallen fruit that has fermented in the sun, pass out and don't make it home. 

"They are not just eating our grapes, they are raiding our kitchens and ripping the thatch off the roofs. They are becoming increasingly bold and destructive," said Jean Naude, general manager at the vineyard, which is celebrating its 325th birthday this year. Guards banging sticks and waving plastic snakes have been deployed with only limited success, and not even a blast of a vuvuzela, the plastic horn made famous at the World Cup, seems to frighten them. 

"Next up we're going to start locating pictures nailed to wooden posts," Naude went on to describe, "certain  research has shown that Baboons can be more easily frightened by the sight of an incredibly ugly face or scene, so we'll see where this leads us."

Arizona Governor Brewer condemns report to UN mentioning Ariz. law...

PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer demanded Friday that a reference to the state's controversial immigration law be removed from a State Department report to the United Nations' human rights commissioner.

The U.S. included its legal challenge to the law on a list of ways the federal government is protecting human rights.

In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is "downright offensive" that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years.

"The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to 'review' by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional," Brewer wrote.

Gets to you, doesn't it?

The fact that RodHam and Hussein aren't on America's side in anything, and will rush to slander her at every turn.

But we knew this going in. Tried to mentally prepare for what was to come; tried to not let it bother us. Problem is...Just like communists don't stop being communists...Patriots don't stop being Patriots.

Is it November yet?

Knife Blading 101...

...Subtitled: The REAL Description of Knife-Grinds, And NOT What Frost Cutlery Tells You

There are literally dozens of variations on a theme when it comes to the knife-edge-grinds that find their way onto our favorite cutlery.

Generally speaking, there are six (6) common grinds, from which one may begin to create a custom grind.

1. Hollow Grind: A convex hollow is removed from both sides of the edge. Most straight razors are hollow ground.

2. Flat ground: The blade tapers all the way from the spine to the edge from both sides. 

3. Saber ground—Similar to a flat ground blade except that the bevel starts at about the middle of the blade, not the spine. It produces a more lasting edge at the expense of some cutting ability.

4. Chisel ground—As on a chisel only one side is ground (often at an edge angle of about 20 – 30°) whilst the other remains flat all the way to the spine.
5. Double bevel or compound bevel—A back bevel, similar to a saber or flat grind, is put on the blade behind the edge bevel (the bevel which is the foremost cutting surface). This back bevel keeps the section of blade behind the edge thinner which improves cutting ability. Being less acute at the edge than a single bevel, sharpness is sacrificed for resilience.
6. Convex ground—Rather than tapering with straight lines to the edge, the taper is curved, though in the opposite manner to a hollow grind. Such a shape keeps a lot of metal behind the edge making for a stronger edge while still allowing a good degree of sharpness. This grind is often used on axes and is then called...taa daa... an axe grind. 

After receiving...and they're still coming...plenty of heat from daring to speak the truth about Frost Cutlery, I'm in the position of being something of an instructor, because of the unfortunate few who've learned everything they know about knives from the Frosted Flakes. One cannot begin to speak the same language when one is up against they who no speaky the English.

How much IS your thumb or forefinger or pinky worth? How's about your son's or daughter's digits? The Wife? Pop, Mom, the unknowing neighbor you gifted that absolute piece of junk to?

Look fella's buy what you want to buy. No one is saying not to. You, each and every last one of you, deserve and are entitled to your own opinion.

Not your own facts.

The Frost representatives on Cutlery Corner cannot even describe what a common knife grind is. They don't have to. They specialize in misrepresenting everything there is to do with cutlery...BECAUSE....when you can't brag on the quality of your product you do what the common criminals called con-men have always done.

Lie. For example, a Hollow Grind -  has a convex hollow -  ground into the knife's EDGE. Nothing at all to do with the spine of the knife. Sometimes, as is the case with full flat grinds, the edge must be created as a continuous taper from the spine, but that's a different story and NOT what the Frosted Flakes are talking about. 

The Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night shows you've been using as examples, were featuring the piece of crap razors that both Todd Boone and Tom O'Dell were hawking, and they MISTAKENLY said, time and again, that a straight razor's hollow grind is measured from the spine to the edge.

No. It is not. How anyone who has been around knives for literally decades could believe such a thing is difficult to understand. 

I haven't mentioned Mrs. Travis. She is the co-host when its time for Tom O'Dell to take over after Todd Boone has shouted his lungs out.  Mrs. Travis - who is Mr. O'Dell's daughter-in-law, is there to assure that old Tom doesn't ramble on TOO much and give away the store. How else would you explain the addition of a woman who has all of the charm and personality of a book of stamps. Knowing virtually nothing about knives, Mrs. Travis points the seemingly slowly sinking into senility O'Dell in the right direction when she isn't busy yakking off camera with whomever happens to be in the room. 

Cutlery Corner. The epitome of FAIL.

Be the master of your own domain. LEARN more about your hobby and try not to let the conmen steal from you.

Phil Mushnick Wonders: Al Sharpton...Activist Or Arsonist...

In February, 2008, the Rev. Al Sharpton made big news when he claimed the U.S. government was eager to persecute and prosecute Barry Bonds because he is black, yet is giving Roger Clemens a virtual free pass because he is white.

"When you are black," Sharpton said of the two men, during his radio show, "you are subjected to a different reality, and we are not going to be quiet."

Yet, Sharpton seems to have grown very quiet -- silent, even -- about his claim that Clemens has been given a look-away pass because he's white. 

Last week, after Clemens was indicted by the federal government for perjury, Sharpton appeared on MSNBC. But his irresponsible, inflammatory allegations about Bonds and Clemens were never even mentioned. Sharpton was brought on to shout "racism!" at something else. 

Sharpton never has been held accountable for his wishful-thinking claims about sports, but those claims sure make big news when he first makes them. That's what happens when the news media can't distinguish -- or chooses not to distinguish -- an activist from an arsonist.

NY Post sports scribe Phil Mushnick is one of the very, very few U.S. journalists who dares speak up against the slimeball racists that continue to inflame America in order to increase their own ill-gotten-gains.

Thanks for being a voice in the wilderness, Phil.

How To Prevent Rape...As Seen From Two Sort Of Kinda Different Perspectives

Illinois State Police Guidelines On Preventing...OR Defending Against Rape

Don't be someplace where rapists might be
Puke on his shoes
Tell him you have AIDS
Use A Rat-tail comb or Teasing Brush or Anything Rigid to fight back if you must
Guns are just stolen then used by criminals to commit more crimes so that's not an option
If there are multiple assailants and/or armed ones, then fighting probably isn't the way to go so good luck with all that but let us know how it all came out

Fits' Guidelines On Preventing...OR Defending Against Rape

Draw your firearm, take careful aim if at all possible, then shoot the son of a bitch until he's dead.

Obama And His Love For Islam And The Koran...

Aside from his obvious love of islam...and seeming impossibility to say anything NEARLY as nice about America...I had to stop watching this because if I heard him pronounce Korrrrrrrrraaaaaahn just one more time I'd have begun thinking of things best left unsaid.

EPA Refuses To Follow Nutcase Call For Ban Of ALL Lead Ammunition

Responding to a grassroots outcry from gun owners, the Environmental Protection Agency today announced that it has denied a petition by the Center for Biological Diversity and other radical groups that had sought to ban the use of lead in ammunition.

Agreeing with the position of the NRA and the firearms industry, the agency explained in a news release that it "does not have the legal authority to regulate this type of product under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)."  Further crushing the hopes of anti-gun and anti-hunting activists, the release added: "nor is the agency seeking such authority."

There are cracks showing. In this liberal Congress's armor. Usually I'd have been worried about this but it was becoming common knowledge that the EPA had been given the word from on high; NO banning of lead bullets. As we all know, the NRA is a one-topic association and has supported liberal Congress critters in the past, and with most politicians holding on for dear life these days they obviously didn't want to own a dog in this fight.

Whoops. Now more hate mail from PETA. That's always fun.

Vacationing With The Obama's: How Are They Paying For All This?

Sure, Martha's Vineyard hideaways can cost you or me around $100 grand for a ten-day stay, but the president's retinue is another story.

I've seen estimates of close to half a mill, and when you think of the fact that the first lady brings along 22-24 staff members all by her lonesome, then it isn't hard to imagine where the money is going.

But where is it coming from?

The Obama's weren't wealthy before renting the White House on our dime. While in office, they've together accounted for at least several million dollars worth of vacation expenses.

Once the Republicans take back Congress I wouldn't be at all surprised to see an investigation into from whence the moolah is coming.

Pictured: "Ohhh...this feels ripe!" Having left her spectacles back at the castle, Lady Michelle mistakenly tries to purchase a black child who by chance was observing the first-family from a nearby fruit stand.

Email reply to our post concerning Frost Cutlery..."Worst Company In The World To Buy Knives From?"

"...What do u have against Frost Cltury? They do so make there own knifes or how could they put there name on them. Just because some company is looking out for the little guy is know reason to poke fun at them."

Well now, besides selling cheap Pakistani and Chinese pot steel and having the unmitigated gall to refer to these abominations as "knives",  here's what a former employee of Frost had to say:

Drugs and obsenities are worse here than any prison yard, and people who actually come in to do their jobs are treated wrongly when they decline drugs, cigarettes and head games with others. Working here isn't something I would wish on my biggest foe, and being a customer here is also risky. Customer service is a joke and just like 3rd shift no one seems to actually know the answer to a question. Most of the questions I asked were answered "I think...Maybe...Ask someone else". Now to explain the scores I gave. Pay - good if you don't want a raise ever. Respect - there is none here for anyone.

Donating Your Body To...

 ...A Restaurant?

Berlin 'cannibal' restaurant calls for diners to donate body parts for menu

The online campaign by Flime in Berlin has called for diners to "donate any part of their body" as well as looking for an "open-minded surgeon". 

However, politicians have condemned the restaurant for being a tasteless PR stunt according to Der Spiegel

So far the location of the restaurant, if there is one, has not been disclosed.
"Members" willing to participate in the cannibal "Wari-culture" of the restaurant are asked to fill out a form.
It includes questions about medical fitness, Body Mass Index, how often one exercises and even if the donor is pregnant. 

The restaurant claims to be inspired by the "compassionate cannibalism" of the Brazilian Waricaca tribe.
The website explains: "We see feasting as a spiritual act, in which the spirit and strength of the consumed creature is given to the guests."

Human meat has always been highly overrated. To eat, I mean. Take Gisele for example. Grade A there.

Instead Of Visiting Where The REAL Invaders Are...Nappy Goes To Chitown

Homeland Security head praises city's security cameras

"...Every year, Daley uses the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to pronounce Chicago as safe as any major city can possibly be. 

Approaching the ninth anniversary, Napolitano agreed.

“In a world where we cannot eliminate all risks, Chicagoans can be confident that every effort that I know of that can be made is being made to minimize the risk. And if something were to happen, their first-responders are prepared,” she said.

So now lemme see if I can get this straight...

Chicago is the city with the unique distinction of being nicknamed Murder Capitol of America, so Daley and Nappy want to continue focusing efforts on make-believe terrorists instead of wading into the street gangs with tooth and nail.

Chicago is not a terror-target. There is nothing in Chicago for moslems to blow up. Islam doesn't know Chicago from Shenanigan. The real invaders of America are still happily streaming into our border states while The Napster plays smoochie-smooch with crook Daley.

I mean, what are the moslem terror gangs going to do to Chitown?

Knock down the old Sears Tower so as to ruin over-the-air reception to reruns of Gilligan's Island for the greater Midwest?

"Lululululul...Alahu Achbar! Take THAT you Ginger slut!"

This is how liberals govern. Shadows and mirrors and bullswaddle.

Michelle Malkin Has A Look At: Hurricane Katrina and the Race Card: Five Years Later

"...Five years later, the same color-coded paranoia and political opportunism that poisoned the Hurricane Katrina recovery permeates every current conflict in the public square: Ground Zero Mosque opponents are all suspiciously funded bigots, according to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Tea Party movement is the new Bull Connor, according to every liberal New York Times columnist. President Obama's critics hate black people, according to every major black Hollywood director and hip-hop mogul. As for the soul-fixing, Nobel Peace Prize-winning commander-in-chief whose election was supposed to heal the divide, I will guarantee you he won't ever lift a finger to repudiate the cynical smear tactics against his unjustly accused predecessor.

Post-racial America, we never knew you."

Yep. The inevitable. The Yellowstream Media, Hollywood, The Congressional Black Caucus, and of course every rapper alive, joined in excoriating George Bush back when 3 whole days was too long of a wait to get the government wheels a'rolling then try to save New Orleans from itself.

Now the same racist entities...seemingly unmindful of Barack Obama's dallying while the Gulf of Mexico was flooded with light sweet crude...will be celebrating their disrespect of all that was decent in America, by re-writing history yet again.

By the way, that old saw of winners writing history? Never was true, never will be true. Since the medium is the message it is the media, particularly in these days of instantaneous news, that shapes history to suit it's political agenda.

As the 5th anniversary of  New Orleans politicians, ably abetted by local law enforcement...also know as The Gang That Couldn't Loot Straight... allowing their city to nearly float away, all of the usual racist suspects will be on hand to a) blame Bush for their own traitorous goings on, and b) stick up for the cult masquerading as a real religion. Continuing to twist the truth into whatever lies they can get away with.

Bush won his elections. Didn't make a bit of difference to the media and the Congressional Black Racists Caucus or Hollywood nitwits.

Will "Cordoba House" Have Crushed Velour And Rich Corinthian Leather?

 Well we'll sure see, now won't we...

The red circle identifies where the old Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse used to be. It wasn't a warehouse, just the full name of the Burlington Coat Factory. The enormous pic was taken a few days after the murders, and the blue tarp within the circle is covering a gaping hole in the roof.

On September 11, 2001, Flight 175 was hijacked. The airliner smashed through what I believe was the North Tower, and debris rained down over many of the adjoining buildings. Structural damage to the Coat Factory was so severe as to warrant its demolition, and that is where the moslems want to hoist their victory center.

Saying that The Burlington Coat Factory was not part of Ground Zero is simply mad. Of course it was. As a born and raised Manhattanite I was there that day visiting a niece who lived a few blocks away from the Trade Center. The first plane impacted just as I was climbing the stoop to her apartment, and I nearly broke down her door to get her the hell away from the area. I guess she was around 22 or thereabouts at the time and after recovering from the initial shock, and being a NY'er, wanted me to take her to where all the commotion was. Luckily I found a cab that got her to the Brooklyn Bridge then over to Queens where her folks lived before the mass exodus went down, then went back to see if anyone needed help.

About 45 minutes or so after the second plane hit, flatbed trucks were coming down Broadway en masse, with bullhorns beseeching any and all able bodied men to hop aboard and assist in the rescue efforts. There were cops and firemen and regular citizens buried under the rubble outside the Towers, and body parts and all sorts of debris were still floating on down when my truck got there. The personal walkie-talkie's of the police and firemen were going off like crazy from under the wreckage, squawking and bleeping and people screaming for them to answer. We did the best we could, but before long they got us back on the trucks and the hell away from the area because the buildings were pancaking down like nobodies business.

As we traveled along to the Bridge we picked up as many people as we could fit on the trucks, and most of the men got off so that women and children could ride. There were guys there who were in their 70's, I kid you not, and we convinced them that their effort had been a valiant one but is was time to sit back and ride because the smoke and fire and God knows what else was covering the area, and FAST. One of my brothers was working in a nearby Pizzeria, doing prep work for the upcoming lunch hours so I got as close as I could to his building but had to stop because it was simply impossible to see. We didn't have cell phones then, hardly any male who wasn't a businessman did, but one of the cops told me that the Pizzeria workers had pitched in too but were all safely evacuated.

Those filthy scumbags declared war on my home town. And as God is my judge if they get to build a victory monument over the dead bodies of my friends I won't rest until sanity returns to what once was a courageous place to live. The city with the most volunteers for WW's One And Two but of course came from NY, our largest city. The Canyon of Heroes truly was a rallying point for Patriots, and will one day be so again.

PS: The picture is huge but I wanted for those with the capability to view it in it's entirety, and still have Booger let me post it. I actually did shrink the thing way down, too.

Ground Zero Imam Obama's Cairo Speechwriter?

by Connie Hair

A former PLO terrorist living in the U.S. says the Ground Zero mosque imam in February claimed parts of Obama’s speech delivered in Cairo last year came directly from the Arabic version of the imam's book.  And he offers backup of these claims in two separate interviews of the imam.
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

I do not believe Barry Hussein to be a moslem. To be a religious person of any persuasion, one must first have this thing called: FAITH.

Faith is impossible to adequately define, but it is a genuine feeling of love for a benign creator who's design was for mankind to flourish, be supportive and considerate in their charitable dealings with one another, all the while following a set of rules to better enable all of this to happen. Indeed, the Founding Father's of our nation defined certain truisms to be self evident. What they could not have envisioned was the absolute dearth of humanity that has caused certain among us to be incapable of determining precisely what all men of good will define to be self-evident.

Barry Hussein does not truly believe in anything, save for Barry Hussein. He wouldn't know an imam's speech from the price of tea in China. He reads what they write for him to read. It is always a stretch to declare malice aforethought when discussing the utterings of our boy Barry. His masters, they are a horse* of a different color.

* No. I am not referring to Michelle.

Feed That Face, Shelly Girl!

Michelle Obama...Or Thunder-Ass-Who-Got-Into-Lawschool-On-Affirmative-Action-Then Couldn't Find-Work-Until-Her-Husband-Became-A-Senator, As She's Affectionately Known As Around Here On Why She And Her Children Were Scarfing Down Junk Food At The Fair, In The 57th State Of Iowa

 “Our main reason…at least the girls and I…we’re here for the state fair. I don’t know about you. We’re going to get some stuff on a stick. I don’t care what it is – a hot dog, a Snickers bar -- we’re eating everything on a stick today.”

This is of course the same first lady that started the "Let's Move" * program in order to combat childhood obesity.

Or in other words, the slimy politicians wife who'll say or do anything she's told to say or do because she in essence has no core values of her own. The absolute reason behind liberals waffling time and again; they believe in nothing worth believing in and it's always really really hard to remember lies.

*Actually, no. "Let's Move" Is not what other residents said when they learned about the Obama's moving into their neighborhood. To believe this to be true is wrong. Didn't happen. Not a chance. Never in a million years.

Jacob Weisburger...OR...Weithburger as he himself pronounces it...


Ann Coulter often mentions how hilarious it is for someone with a pronounced lisp, such as Weisburger...to author books about how other people, well, speak sort of funny. The "other people" are of course Conservatives.

There are other YouTubious references to His Lispness, but this was, mercifully, the shortest one available. Weithburger is a "writer" for Slate, and often appears on that liberal bulwark of stupidity, NPR.

Again, bear in mind that this is a fellow who makes his living by authoring books on how funny George Bush and Sarah Palin sound.

Here then are two short examples that Miss Ann has compiled, with a larger list to be found on the righthanded side of her website:

GREETING ALLISON STEWART ON NPR: "Hi, Alithon. Thankth for having me on."

ON SELLING SEASHELLS BY THE SEASHORE: “Thee thells theathels by the theathore.”

President Kow-Tow Had Facts Wrong During Ohio Bow-n-Beg-a'thon

A local project that President Barack Obama cited during a visit Wednesday to Columbus as an example of how the federal stimulus package has worked isn't actually being funded with stimulus dollars.

The president spoke at the North Side home of architect Joe Weithman, and both Obama's comments and information from the White House touted Weithman's work on a project that the president said was being at least partially funded by the $787 billion stimulus bill passed last year.

"What we've been trying to do is to build infrastructure that puts people back to work but also improves the quality of life in communities like Columbus," Obama said in his remarks. "So Joe is an architect, and he's now working on a new police station that was funded in part with Recovery Act funds."

But although federal money is being used for the project in question, there are no stimulus dollars involved, said Columbus Finance Director Paul Rakosky, a Democrat.

Rakosky said the project is not a police station but rather the renovation of an abandoned warehouse that the city purchased on the South Side in 2007 to house the city's police crime lab and property room.

Seriously now, enough is enough.

Is it 2012 yet?

US helps fund mosque, minaret restoration around the world as part of cultural outreach

The good will tour of the Middle East by the imam behind the proposed mosque near ground zero is just part of the U.S. government's efforts to reach out to the Muslim world.

This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations, according to State Department documents.

I've nothing against America helping to maintain the world's famous historic and "cultural" sites. What I am sick and tired of is the liberal mentality that cries foul each and every time a Nativity scene is erected during Christmas, but thinks it's just peachy to spend tax dollars on everybody else's religion.

Rapscallion Somali Moslems Storm Hotel...Killing At Least 32...

MOGADISHU, Somalia -- A suicide bomber and gunmen wearing military uniforms attacked a hotel near Somalia's presidential palace Monday, sparking a running gun battle with security forces. At least 32 people were killed, including six Somali parliamentarians.

A parliamentarian who was at the Muna Hotel said there were "dead bodies all over" and he labeled the scene a massacre.

Well then, don't that beat all.

Damn them Muna people for daring to erect a hotel in Somalia. Because building things soon leads to building more things and before you know it people are working and their taxes are actually HELPING a country grow.

One thing moslems simply cannot stand for is their people residing within healthy economies. Lots of work means fewer young men are unhappy enough to blow themselves up, and any decent mullissimo worth his salt does whatever he can to assure zero employment.

Sound familiar? It should. Same thing is being tried here, too. By a fellow named Hussein. Go figure.

Come To Think Of It...

It'd be a helluva way for the DNC to raise some serious cash.

Because like most political action groups, they couldn't care less who wins what, as long as they get their share.

Most Republicans would pay through the nose to get Barry the Bow on the stump with them. Barry arrives, the Republican's poll numbers go through the roof, then the NEXT GOP'er who wants such marvelous results has to pay even more.

Win-win. The DNC gets to pocket lots of money, and all they need to do is simply wait until the country forgets how gods-awful modern day liberal dems are...let's say 2016, the latest...and by then they'll be floating in dough and ready to help elect the next idiot.

Oh blah dee Oh blah da.

Monday's: Zombie's And Or Democrats Have Taken Over The World Poll

In retrospect, I should have asked for one handgun and one longarm. But then those tuning in from Rio Linda would have been stretched to bursting in an attempt to think of two things at nearly the same time.

Now, Ya'll Excuse Me Whilest I Whip This Out...

Spyderco Civilian. Designed to be ogled. And...

It's definitely going to leave a mark.

Background story: 

To be taken with a grain of salt:  Spyderco insists that the State Department contacted them some years back, in search of a weapon that could be easily used by civilians with no experience in self-defense. Hence the seemingly contradictory name of "Civilian", as one might very well imagine that only inveterate chairborne commandos would own so ugly a knife.

One of the things I personally found lacking in fully serrated hawbill knifes is the propensity for them to snag on buttons, clothing, zippers, heavy jackets, etc.

But...it would be on my list of knives to use should a platoon of nudists storm Fort Fits.

More such goings on may be viewed here.

Frost Cutlery: Worst Company In The World To Buy Knives From?

As long as there's FleaBay, Frost probably isn't the absolute worst U.S. importer of Pakistani garbage knives, but they do run a close second. The picture to the left is a monstrosity they are giving away free to some hopefully blind person who was unlucky enough to have his name drawn from a hat. To Frost, such a design is not only pleasing, but something they have the audacity to refer to as a "Custom".

However, at least on the Bay one can get lucky; with Frost you get pot steel  and even less of a guarantee.

Cutlery Corner, that several-times-per-week reminder that yes Virginia, Satan is real, supposedly warranties their product for 30 days, yes 30 whole, entire days, but this devil is in the details for sure. I don't know about the flea markets where you hail from, but in this neck of the woods it is a virtual impossibility to walk 15 feet without running into a knife stand that is guaranteed to be featuring old man Frost's wares, and they do it knowing full well that to keep a good customer happy one must replace broken down product without help from Frost, as Frost has more hoops to jump through than a dog with his tail on fire over at Ringling Bros.

Like to return that there blade you purchased because you might as well have used a picture of a knife to do your cutting chores? Better have the original invoice, fella. But, dayum, you say, why's that? It has the Frost name on it, it's right there on their website, and you got is as a gift so how the heck are you supposed to conjure up an invoice?

Three reasons, bunky; 1) they don't WANT you sending back any knives, one of the reasons their shipping is ludicrously high,  2) it's a real hassle for their incompetent office folk to go looking up all that paperwork, and last but never least, by making it as difficult as possible they know damned well that most people will just say to hell with it and forget those couple of bucks uselessly spent.

This is why a dealer or re-seller of any sort cannot tell a customer to simply send a bad knife...not that there are good ones, mind you... back to Frost. Because the customer would have to send back a copy of the seller's invoice, and no seller stays in business by doing business like that. And even with an invoice, Frost dealers have told me that molasses in Alaska is faster than a Frost warranty-return, and know they're better off just eating the outlay themselves rather than waiting for the nigh on impossible. But sell them they do, because Frost does a good job of advertising their products to complete idiots that simply do not know any better, and to pride oneself on having a fairly complete line of cutlery, one simply has to include Frost along with the companies that actually make their own stuff and do it rather well.

Frost Cutlery does not have a manufacturing facility. Anywhere. They purchase bulk quantity of Pakistani and Chinese made blades, and offer the occasional brand-name product just to make it seem as if they're a real knife maker, too. Just like legitimate knife dealers must sell Frost, Frost is obliged to toss in a Kershaw, or Case here and there, simply for appearances sake.

For years they've had the Fudd market, if not all to themselves, than at least salivating over all of those poorly made slip-joints that grand daddy loved so well. Grand daddy had far less of a market from which to choose his blade from, but Grand-sons STILL select Frost even though anyone with half a mind should know better.

Back when we lived in Iowa, I found a portable Rockwell Hardness tester at a Pawn Shop. Looked like an oversized fountain pen, but did a reasonably good job. Using a $7K fancy lab version, one can obtain a Rockwell result down to the decimal places, like 52.5 HRC, for example, but the little field device only provided a range of say, 52-54. And EVERY last Frost knife I got my hands on, and DESPITE their advertising that the blade had a Rockwell of 54-56, every knife from Frost had a difficult time cracking the 50 barrier, and that's being generous.

Soft, butter-knife alloys, usually poorly heat treated 440A, 420J, or any number of alphabet soup Chinese steels that are junk, plain and simple, are what little Frosts are made of. Throw in crappy pivots, loose screws, wafer-thin liners, cheap plastic handles they lie about and refer to as Kraton or some other decent scale, and you are beginning to get the picture.

For a good laugh, you can get to Cutlery Corner by clicking here. Check out the video's that are made available after every broadcast if you'd like to continue guffawing. If they have one saving grace it is the fact that their television-representatives are dumber than a box of claw hammers, and while they might lie, cheat, and stumble their way through EVERY last broadcast, at least they're damned funny looking.

All Hands: Sportsmans Guide...Ammo

Have added a new link, this one to The Sportsmans Guide, that connects the connectoree to the connectorer (or the other way around), which is in this case to ammunition.

One of my most fondest of things in the whole wide world. As usual, said link is for all of us, and not something I derive any personal remuneration for. Yeah big woop right...

Seriously, there is simply no such thing as too many places to choose from when it comes to ammo. And let's be serious now, when was the last time you went to the range, anyway? Not as if we're all like Lem who reloads even his own supply of 22 lr.

Go buy ammo. Be an American. You know you want to, you know you need to, and above all else because you know I'll be watching. What you don't need is yet another stalker.

Bear Kills Caretaker

COLUMBIA STATION, Ohio (Aug. 20) -- A bear fatally mauled its caretaker during a feeding on property holding dozens of other exotic pets owned by a man who drew the wrath of activists -- and lost his license to exhibit -- after offering people the chance to wrestle bears at a Cleveland expo.

The bear in the attack southwest of Cleveland was not one that owner Sam Mazzola had used for wrestling, officials said. His license to show animals had been revoked, but he apparently was still allowed to keep them on his property, which housed a menagerie including several bears, 20 wolves, tigers and lions.

Wrestled a bear once. On liberty from Camp Lejeune  back somewhere's in the latish 60's. Group of us went to this fair where you could wrestle a bear, a gorilla, or box a chimp. The bear was actually a friendly old fellow, the gorilla just wanted to go to sleep, but that chimp, man that chimp was an arch criminal. Beat me up more than the bear or the gorilla did. But nothing was as furious as that ruckus we started over at the Palm Reader's tent. Two ladies I remember quite well from those days; Painless Nell who ran the tattoo parlor in San Diego, and Madam Fatima who told your fortune in North Carolina. Painless was far from it but you at least ASKED her to maim you for life. Fatima could use a knife. Really well.

Dealing with dangerous critters is something young men do, that is not conducive to their become old men. Now and forever, nothing much changes but today there's the internet to mock you if you get caught being an ass.

With His Everything-Cred In The Crapper, Can Obama Regain His Mojo Through Jesus?

Now, in the summer of 2010, with his poll numbers tanking almost everywhere except on the "Muslim question," it is fair to muse that maybe Obama should trot Wright back out to establish some "Jesus Cred." This is a president who is becoming more and more of a mystery to many the more they find out about him, and fewer and fewer believe Obama has any Jesus cred as time goes on.
And the media reaction is so predictable.
Of course, when secular liberals start trying to go all religious on us, it becomes an intellectual struggle. Their dots do not connect. The fragile construct they had concocted about Obama's faith life is starting to crumble. That's why America is simultaneously getting to know Obama better and knowing less about him at the same time.
The entire issue of religion in the 2008 campaign was somewhat successfully pigeonholed into neat little compartments by the media -- pigeonholes that have little to do with reality. Everything was built around hiding or obfuscating or outright lying about who Obama is and what he believes.
On the one hand, we were told that Obama's relationship with Wright was irrelevant and that he slept through the hateful messages -- and on the other, TUCC was where Obama practiced his professed Christianity and received inspirations for his writings. We were told that in spite of that, Obama's relationship with Wright was no more of an issue than was John McCain's with John Hagee, an evangelical preacher with whom McCain had shared a lectern on occasion. 
And through all of this, we were required to have enough suspension of belief to count Black Liberation Theology as Christian in the first place. Right. Never mind Jeremiah Wright's relationship with and support of Louis Farrakhan.

We were told to fear Sarah Palin's devout faith -- and yet told to embrace Obama's professed Christian conversion. Every stone in Wasilla was overturned in hopes of finding some evidence of Palin's handling of snakes or casting out of demons -- while the entire "no no no -- G.D. America" tape collection available on the Trinity Church website was ignored for months and months.
We were told that Obama is certainly not a Muslim, yet he would have a magical ability to reach out to the Muslim world -- thus ending America's role as a terror target. We were told that the world, especially the Muslim world, would continue to hate America if we elected a religious nut like Palin, however.
Of course, none of that makes any sense -- and that becomes clearer and clearer to more and more Americans under the microscope of the Ground Zero Mosque issue. And it's not the mosque issue alone, of course. As theorized by J.R. Dunn, that could simply be the tipping point.

There's the skipping of the Boy Scout's 100th Anniversary Ceremony. There's the golf instead of church almost every Sunday. There's the "clinging to their guns and religion" comment. There's the anti-Israel comments and policies. And on and on.

So now we have a president haunted by the idea that he is really a Muslim -- and not a Christian at all. How delicious it is that his blatantly secular liberal supporters are totally impotent at fighting this battle for him -- given that so many Americans take faith seriously? 
And going back to Wright's Trinity Church will not help. There will be no Jesus Cred available there. Listen to the tapes or order the books. You will simply find Black Liberation Theology and Marxism and so on. Jesus? Not so much.

So Americans will likely continue to think of Obama as a Muslim in increasing numbers. But hey -- "not that there's anything wrong with that." 

Is there?

Only if you are the sort to dry hump your enemies while stiff-arming your friends.

Precisely how many times must we be assailed by the horrors of Islam before calling a spade a spade? In every decade of every century of every nation on earth, as soon as a moslem population grew enough for other folks to take notice, the notice was one of absolute dismay. For example, to be a mailman in a moslem enclave in Paris you must A.) Be a man. B.) Grow a beard. C.) Convert to Islam or don body armor to deflect the rocks hurled at you by even the little children.

These folks are simply not the E.Pluribus Unum type, don't ya know. Modern people don't fear Islam because it's different, they fear it because moslems demand to be feared. Admittedly, that's only if being knocked to the ground and having your head sawed off by a dull blade is something you might consider to be somewhat foreboding. 

So pardon the real world for going into full frontal forebode whenever Islam is mentioned.

And guess what? There's PLENTY wrong with that. 

Ground Zero: First Podcast Attempt

Obama: No Regrets...

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Despite criticism from Republicans and others, President Barack Obama said Wednesday he has "no regrets" over the comments he made about the right of Muslims to build an Islamic center near the former site of the World Trade Center in New York.

Obama's latest comment was in response to a question shouted by a reporter as he was leaving a townhall-style meeting on the economy in Ohio.

The president inserted himself into the debate over the proposed Islamic center, which includes a mosque, when he said last week Muslims "have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country" and that included building the Islamic center in lower Manhattan. A day later, Obama told reporters that he wasn't endorsing the specifics of the plan.

His position has drawn criticism from those who say that the $100 million Islamic center should not be built two blocks away from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Republicans have seized on the issue, with many trying to force Democrats to either stand with the president or buck him.

This is of course becoming old news, but the fight to prevent the terror leaders from raising a victory platform near to their most magnificent triumph, is ongoing.

In the meanwhile, we've been fiddling with attempting a podcast, and as usual the software is balky, clumsy, inefficient, and impossible to tell if it is working properly or at all.

Blast From The Past: Lamebrained Egghead Predicted Relations With Moslem World Would Improve Were Obama Elected

May 12, 2008
NY TIMES Op-Ed Contributor

President Apostate?

With few exceptions, the jurists of all Sunni and Shiite schools prescribe execution for all adults who leave the faith not under duress; the recommended punishment is beheading at the hands of a cleric, although in recent years there have been both stonings and hangings. (Some may point to cases in which lesser punishments were ordered — as with some Egyptian intellectuals who have been punished for writings that were construed as apostasy — but those were really instances of supposed heresy, not explicitly declared apostasy as in Senator Obama’s case.) 

It is true that the criminal codes in most Muslim countries do not mandate execution for apostasy (although a law doing exactly that is pending before Iran’s Parliament and in two Malaysian states). But as a practical matter, in very few Islamic countries do the governments have sufficient authority to resist demands for the punishment of apostates at the hands of religious authorities.
For example, in Iran in 1994 the intervention of Pope John Paul II and others won a Christian convert a last-minute reprieve, but the man was abducted and killed shortly after his release. Likewise, in 2006 in Afghanistan, a Christian convert had to be declared insane to prevent his execution, and he was still forced to flee to Italy.

Because no government is likely to allow the prosecution of a President Obama — not even those of Iran and Saudi Arabia, the only two countries where Islamic religious courts dominate over secular law — another provision of Muslim law is perhaps more relevant: it prohibits punishment for any Muslim who kills any apostate, and effectively prohibits interference with such a killing.

At the very least, that would complicate the security planning of state visits by President Obama to Muslim countries, because the very act of protecting him would be sinful for Islamic security guards. More broadly, most citizens of the Islamic world would be horrified by the fact of Senator Obama’s conversion to Christianity once it became widely known — as it would, no doubt, should he win the White House. This would compromise the ability of governments in Muslim nations to cooperate with the United States in the fight against terrorism, as well as American efforts to export democracy and human rights abroad.

That an Obama presidency would cause such complications in our dealings with the Islamic world is not likely to be a major factor with American voters, and the implication is not that it should be. But of all the well-meaning desires projected on Senator Obama, the hope that he would decisively improve relations with the world’s Muslims is the least realistic.

Edward N. Luttwak, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, is the author of “Strategy: The Logic of War and Peace.”

First the idiot describes the moslem remedy for those who were born and raised moslems then converted to Christianity. Not very nice, as we all know.

Then the dolt offers that Obama would IMPROVE relations with islam; why? Well, just because, I guess. In reality, the islamic world has basically told us to go piss up a rope, as the single thing they fear is a strong United States, something impossible under Barry The Bowing Blowhard.

By their own laws, Barry should be summarily beheaded, forthwith. The single reason there isn't a price on his jug-head, is the fact that he's so impotent why in all hells would they want him out? To be replaced by someone who'd actually DO something about the moslem menace?

Hey kids, they're dumb but not that dumb.

And wanna know something else about this cult disguised as a religion...

ANY member can  lie, is in fact encouraged to lie, about his enrollment in the 1st Church of the Gooey Death and Discount House of Beheadment. Saying you're a Christian when you're really a moslem is all well and good, because it might allow you to weasel into their confidence and then of course behead them all.

Kenyan Slaver Convicted Of Attempting To Sell Albino

DAR ES SALAAM — A Kenyan man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for trying to sell an albino man to witchdoctors in Tanzania, local media reported Thursday.

A magistrate's court in northwest Tanzania sentenced 28-year old Nathan Mutei on Wednesday, after he pleaded guilty to charges of human trafficking and abduction with intention to sell an albino man, also Kenyan, for 400 million Tanzanian shillings ($263,000).

At least 53 albinos have been killed since 2007 in the east African nation and their body parts sold for use in witchcraft, especially in the remote northwest regions of Mwanza and Shinyanga, both gold-mining regions where superstition is rife.

The victims' blood and body parts are used for potions. Witchdoctors tell their clients that the body parts will bring them luck in love, life and business.
There are around 170,000 albino people, who lack pigment in their skin, eyes and hair, living in Tanzania.

Pictured: Children take a break in January 2009 in a recreational hall at the Mitindo Primary School, which has become a rare sanctuary for albino children in Tanzania.

This is far too abhorrent a story to poke fun at or make political hay with. Posted simply as an FYI. The thing is, in this day and age, what with all of the bogus race bullswaddle bantered about by one liberal or another, there still exists an African predilection to buy and sell people just as they did in the good old days.

Just breaks my heart to look at those poor kids.

Working The Tatta-Tat-Tat From A CH46

There is nothing quite so primal as working the gun from an open door. Especially if your first time was when a pilot shouts "on the gun!" after the gunner was taken out, and you brace yourself to the wind and incoming lead that is swirling and plinking all around you. Yeah, you scream, you scream your fool head off and have to be reminded to clear the jams because you aren't human anymore, but a vengeful demon from on high.

Dove World Church Declares September 11 To Be "Burn The Koran Day"

The city of Gainesville has denied Dove World Outreach Center’s application for a burn permit to set fire to copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, but the church plans to burn the holy books anyway.

Gene Prince, the interim chief of Gainesville Fire Rescue, said Wednesday that under the city’s fire prevention ordinance, an open burning of books is not allowed.

Dove World has made international news since announcing its intention to burn the holy book of Islam to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks..

But permit or no permit, the church has indicated it will go ahead with its planned protest of Islam.
In an e-mail newsletter sent out Wednesday, the church announced: “City of Gainesville denies burn permit -- BUT WE WILL STILL BURN KORANS.”

Prince said his department notified the church, which has fewer than 100 members, of the decision in a letter that was mailed Tuesday. He said the church could be fined if it went ahead and held the burning.
Deputy Chief Tim Hayes, who serves as the department’s fire marshal, and an investigator went to the church’s 20-acre property on Northwest 37th Street earlier this month to determine what the burn would entail.

Under the fire ordinances the City Commission adopted last year, bonfires aren’t allowed without a permit, Hayes said.

As I've said many times, Gainesville is a college town, and that means liberal loons rule the roost here. The town itself does pretty much what the University of Florida tells it to do, and with that in mind Dove World was NEVER going to get a permit to burn any Korans.

I've been assured that they're going to do it anyway, and while not a member of the congregation I'll help however much is possible, because they're going to need a few bucks chipped in to pay for the fines. And there will be fines...plural...because the traitorous scumbags calling themselves civil servants will hit Dove World with all they've got and then some.

Crowd control will be necessary as well. Rumor has it that the lunatic libs will be there en masse, because despite the fact that hundreds, if not thousands of American flags are burned each and every September 11, to light up that filthy old rag of a book is something the lefties simply cannot tolerate.

Barack Obama's Father Entered World War II At The Age Of Five, Retired At Nine...

"My Father served in WWII, and when he got home he got the services he needed..."

So okay then. His biological Father was born in 1936, and his step-father in 1935. This boils down to, hold on a sec...minus 9, carry the one...yes, it means that his real Dad was 9 when Japan cried Uncle and his step-Dad was 10.

So what "services" could either of them have received? VA-sponsored babysitters? This isn't simply an offhanded misspoken word; the man said his Father was in the war and made use of VA services upon discharge.

And the simply AMAZING thing? Aside from his lying about his own flesh and blood, is that he can do it with a straight face and nary a tell.

See for yourself how abominable a liar this cretin is, and thanks to I Hate The Media for the heads-up.

Nancy Pelosi Calls For Investigation Into Those Opposing NYC Mosque

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the Ground Zero Mosque on Tuesday. She told San Francisco's KCBS radio:

"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque is being funded," she said.

So lemme get this straight...

It isn't okay for Americans to ask who is building the mosque, but it is okay to investigate who is asking?

In other words, screw Americans and hurray for islam.

I see.

Newt Asks: Food Stamps, Or Paychecks...

by Newt Gingrich
In the 2008 campaign, President Obama gave us all a hint of his socialist leanings when he promised to Joe the Plumber that he would “spread the wealth around.”  Last week, we found out that his policies and those of the Democrats are delivering on that promise…although probably not in the way they expected.

The use of food stamps hit a record high in May 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with 40.8 million Americans receiving Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) subsidies for food purchases. This is more than one-eighth of the population. 

Worse, the USDA projects the number of Americans using food stamps will rise to 43.3 million in 2011.
President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are insisting that the economy has turned the corner and things are getting better.  But how can the economy be getting better if the use of food stamps, a key metric in gauging the health of the American economy, is projected to increase over the next year?"

For three and a half years I drove a bus that picked up senior citizens...you had to be over 55...who no longer were capable of operating a motor vehicle, and took them food shopping. Twice a day, for every day I could manage the trips.

For many, it can be a terrible sequence of events to suddenly find oneself wanting to remain independent but through no fault of one's own, save for living long enough, becoming a nuisance to society.  They drive, they cause or get in accidents, and eventually the cops take away their licenses. And for even the ones who still can get out and about, try getting a decent job in an economy that "lays off" senior, more expensive workers, and replaces them with less costly kids.

Happens everywhere, every day. Folks who WANT to go about their business but become trapped in a rut not of their own design. I'm not talking about the baby-factories of the country that earn their daily bread by procreating, but the average Joe or Jane America who might very well need a leg-up.

In seeing such goings on I became less fretful over the Food Stamp program, especially for the kids who need to eat and it isn't their fault that Mom and Pop are deadbeats. The kids, the oldsters who can't get around like they used to, versus the out and out bums.

Most of the time I wholeheartedly agree with his Newtness but sometimes businesses can be heartless dicks, too. Bottom line is people need work, Obama isn't getting it for them anytime soon, and until the economy can be fixed by someone with at least half a brain we do need a safety net for the ones who can't walk the high wire like they used to.

Yeah, I know. That was sort of his point. But until he can round off some of those hardass edges, the word won't be received in the spirit in which it was uttered. And let's face it; the older the country gets, the more food stamps get printed. Old Ronnie on his most Conservative day wouldn't shut down the presses for those who really needed it. Maybe I'm having a cranky day, but sometimes it seems like Newt would.
