...And in another bit of Liberal brilliance

The Dems want us to increase the fuel milage of ALL our vehicles to unrealistic numbers.

But then, we could always use China as a model of our future vehicles!

Now a little crash test that shows a cabover Ford destroyed for the good of humanity.


Now how about some good-ol 'Merican wrecks?

Just let the frigging thing DIE already!

Can you believe that some Senators (and their money men) STILL want to try forcing amnesty through in one form or another?

A priority for many farm groups is the "Ag jobs" component, one of several programs now needing a new legislative vehicle. It would legalize about 1 million undocumented agricultural workers in the U.S., a key goal of growers whose crops can rot in the fields if not harvested at key times by people willing to work hard at low wages.
That's because "Big Agriculture" doesn't want to invest in developing machinery that would do it quicker,,,but sit idle until needed.

But at least we got through to some of them:
"The American people believe that until we're able to secure our borders and enforce our laws, taking additional steps is really not in the best interests of the country," House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said after Thursday's crucial Senate vote that derailed the bill.

Some lawmakers immediately urged President Bush to accept defeat on the wide-ranging bill and ask Congress for an emergency spending bill for more border enforcement activities. "That would be a great next step after this vote," said Sen. David Vitter, R-La., who opposed the bill.

Some lawmakers said it hardly matters, however, because enough money and authority already are in place to do the job.

There should be "a very strong sense of urgency in this country to simply carry out the law, the mandate, for 854 miles of fence that we passed" in the 109th Congress, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told reporters Thursday. "They've only built 13 miles of the fence so far. Let's get it built before the next hot season."


Like I said, let it die, I hope the amnesty supporters will get theirs in the next election, it would make a dam fine attack strategy to let their constituents know just WHO they're pulling for.

If "Big Ag" starts trying to pull the old "but look at the family farms" cr@p Let them know that WE know that they own most of those "family farms", and have since the '80s.

San Antonio--"Up yours Army!"

I guess the only time that the (mostly) Dem City council cares about U.S. military bases anymore is when BRAC is looking at closing something.

They fought hard to keep the funding for Fort Sam Houston during the last round.
Now they had a choice of Keeping San Antonio a military friendly city by keeping Camp Bullis away from light pollution, or going for the developers money.

Guess which won?

Yeah, the developers. Why would anyone think the Armed Forces training to go to Iraq might need to actually have training in the dark?

The city council just voted to rezone the area surrounding Camp Bullis to be developed into a residential and commercial zone. Some 700 acres.

The choices I'd heard were;
  • Keep the natural ambiant dark (for night vision training)
  • Re-zone to the developers request
  • Laughably.....put black-out zoning into effect in the development.
Black-outs, in high-dollar gated communities. How long do you think that would last?

Anyway, I guess the S.A. city council thinks their chit don't stink with the Spurs MBA title.
...And the Defense jobs here that they'll try to keep.
The fact that hundreds of thousands of new people keep moving here makes them think that somehow they have some kind of class other than... low.

Yep, I can hear them now, complaining about how D.C. doesn't understand how MUCH they love the military and would do ANYTHING to forward their mission. Yep, I know I'll be getting an earful of Bravo Sierra next time they talk about base closings.


(UPDATE) JUNE 29 6:20pm


Sorry, I got That wrong- or the TV got it wrong. I heard the real details on my way to work this morning.
The City Council DID mandate a buffer zone, the developer will only get half of what they wanted.

Dear Sen. Specter

Try to remember this.


YOU. WORK. FOR. ME.

The first three words in the Constitution are "We the PEOPLE"

Not:
``We are in trench warfare and it's going to be rough,'' said Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Specter, a chief sponsor of the legislation. ``But we are going to see the will of the Senate work one way or another.''

Where do these arrogant mother f*ckers get these ideas? It's time so change the players, get some rookies that WANT to win.

Ya know, generally I'm not personally affected by international news

But sometimes I just have to say,,EEWWWWwwwwwwww *shudder*.

This story is one of those times.


And in the Tahoe fire... I haven't heard anything about a possible cause yet. You don't think the Liberal media might be holding out on the fact that illegals are known to start fires for the diversion affect?

Radio sales reps,,,

Aren't they supposed to try to find a good fit for the ads instead of just *selling* air time? No matter how badly the ad fit with the program?

The reason I'm asking is that both 1200 WOAI and 930 KLUP which host the likes of Laura Ingrham, Rush Linbugh, Michael Medved, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage have put an ad for the BI-LINGUAL YELLOW PAGES on during their respective shows.
With all the broo-ha-ha about the amnesty bill, someone really should have told them,,,"Not reeealy a good idea to flood the airwaves with heavily (Mexican)accented english right now....If you get my drift."

But someone did sell a bunch of airtime to people who brag about having clients who no hablar anglis.

Way to go Herb!

Salesmanship 101

A young guy from Ohio moves to Florida and goes to a big

"everything under one roof" department store looking for a job. The

Manager says, "Do you have any sales experience?"

The kid says, "Yeah. I was a salesman back in Ohio."

Well, the boss liked the kid and gave him the job. "You start

tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did."

His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the

store was locked up, the boss came down. "How many customers bought

something from you today?

The kid says, "One".

The boss says, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers

a day. How much was the sale for?" The kid says, "$101,237.65".

The boss says, "$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?"

The kid says, "First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a

medium fishhook. Then I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a

new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he

said down the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we

went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Chris

Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so

I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4x4

Expedition."

The boss said, "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him

a BOAT and a TRUCK?"

The kid said, "No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife,

and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's shot, you should go fishing."

I admit, I didn't know which way to go with this

Erica had an Archie Bunker You-tube up about gun control.

Ok, do I follow with an Archie Bunker thing, or a gun thing?



How about the comedic effect?

Killing two birds with one stone

...so to speak.
El Capitain is going to have to flea bath his catzz.

Being the helpful soul I am, here is an easy way to both fleadip the cats, AND do some house cleaning at the same time!



1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet flea shampoo to the water in the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid.

4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse".

6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.

9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

Sincerely,

The Dog

I AM amazed

Really.

I thought those in power up in D.C. were the ones that were the ones that made things happen.
Turns out I was wrong- they're almost as helpless as a newborn kitten- if you believe what they tell you on talk radio.

I heard Micheal Chirtoff yesterday, telling how powerless he was to close a gap in the Cali border fence called "Smugglers Gulch (or Gap) because according to him it's some kind of engineering impossibility. The Engineers have been looking at the problem of filling and fencing this free pass for over two years. But Micheal can't be held responsible for his agency not getting it done...because he has to rely on his underlings- ya know.

Trent Lott was on Hannity as I was driving home tonight, complaining about how helpless the entire U.S. Congress is to actually get their laws enforced.
THAT'S why nothings been done about the increasing flood of illegals since 1987.
They pass laws, but golly-gee, we can't actually enforce them, ya know.
But trust us on this new one, we'll see that it gets enforced.

Sorry guys, I was in the Navy for almost 9 years, (you pick your favorite bureaucracy). I know that if the boss wants something done- it gets done. If the boss doesn't want it done, no matter how he mouths off about it- it don't get done.

This might interest some of you in a city

Or anyone close enough to an ATT repeater station to be able to get DSL.

According to this, AT&T is offering DSL for $10/month.

No, they're not advertising it, but I'm sure you could get it if you asked.

It's one of the drawbacks to being out in the country- we need satellite for TV (Charter sucks) and Broadband. Oh and 15 mile round trips EVERY time someone goes into town.

Now here's something you won't be seeing on the MSM

It's actually a bit of good news on the illegal immigration wars....

Tom Tancredo won a battle in the House last Friday against Sanctuary Cities.

Yep, finally they'll be loosing some Federal money for thumbing their noses at Federal law (and the rest of America).

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives this morning voted to withhold federal emergency services funding for "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal immigrants.

Anti-illegal immigration champion Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., sponsored the measure, which he says would apply to cities such as Denver and Boulder. He was elated by its passage, which stunned critics and supporters alike.

The Littleton Republican's amendment to the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill appears to have no language specifically defining a sanctuary city. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper has long disputed giving the city that label.

"The issue has come to fruition," Tancredo said by cell phone after the vote. "The people of the country really have spoken. It's a really good indicator of just how much closer to the people the House is than the Senate is."

The House passed the amendment, 234 to 189, with 50 Democrats voting in favor.


He's rapidly moving up in my book.
I'm not sure about the #1 office, but a Thompson/Tancredo team looks good to me....



H/T to Rednecks Revenge.

Ok, let me try to drum-up some sympathy here

I'm trying,,,

I'm really concentrating on just a leeetle empathy here,,,

Geeeze, this is hard....


Nope, can't do it.


It's really hard to feel any sympathy for an entire society that bases it's entire existence on hatred and violence.


Palestinians run as they try to cross to the Israel side at the Erez Crossing, in the northern Gaza Strip, Saturday, June 16, 2007. Dozens of Palestinians converged on the Erez crossing with Israel on Saturday, trying to leave the Gaza Strip following Hamas' takeover. At the same time, hundreds of people looted police positions on the Palestinian side of Erez, and at one point Israeli troops fired in the air to keep the crowd at bay. The looters walked off with furniture and scrap metal. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)


And, naturally, it's all someone elise's fault
“I’m afraid to say this out loud, they may execute me for it, but there are a lot of people, including myself, who think it would be better if Israel came back here. Things would be much better than they are now,” said Samara (alias), a graduate of the Islamic University living in the Gaza Strip.


According to Samara, who lives nearby one of the Fatah strongholds taken over by Hamas in recent days, fear reigns in Gaza’s streets, and apart from gunmen and military officials, no one leaves their homes.


“The children are afraid all the time,” Samara says. “My nephews ask, ‘Why are the Israelis shooting at us?’, and we tell them it’s Palestinians. Then they ask, ‘Why are Palestinians shooting at us?’, and I have no answer for them.

“We have no food at home. We'’ve been living on soups and canned food for days. There is no electricity or continuous water supply, let alone medicine or essential hygiene products,” she explained.


The gun battles taking place in the streets keep all of Gaza’s residents in a state of constant fear.


~because,,,~
Israel is not free of blame in Samara’s eyes either. According to her, despite the Israeli government’s desire to wash its hands of Gaza, it should have done so the “right way”, and left it with economic infrastructures.


“When people have money, they don’t turn to violence,” she said.


Samara explained that the economic boycott on the Palestinian Authority punished residents of Gaza, and not Hamas. She called on Israel to open the Rafah crossing and allow those who could to leave Gaza. “The Strip is like a jail, and we could die,” she said.


Samara also had harsh claims against Arab states, saying they do nothing to improve the situation. “Everywhere we go, even Arab states, the consider us to be terrorists,” she claimed.


Well lady woman, that's because of what you've shown the world for the last 50, or so years.
Israel forced it's settlers out and left you their flourishing greenhouses which could have been used for years to supply food and commodities--BUT, you had to go and trash them looking to loot pumps and electrical copper to sell on the black market. If they would have left you a pristine infrastructure system, it would have been broken in less than a week- why bother?


And Michael Medved, who is usually smart enough to win a chess game just by looking at the board was wondering on his radio program, why the other Arab nations (Egypt) won't allow them refuge in their countries.
Micheal, even I know that they have enough problems of their own without importing a roiling pot of violence.

"Yo no hablar anglis"

I was doing a bury drop at one house being redone up on the N.E. side (money!) of San Antonio Friday. I had to cut about ten feet off the RG-11 cable to fit it into the pedestal.

I didn't see the red tag that ment it had T-W digital phone service.
The house had an alarm service incorporated in it- with the phone. If the phone was disconnected and reconnected,,,the alarm company got the call AND the house alarm went off,,,,,,loudly.

I tried to get the illegals Mexicans Mr. Booshes favorite children Foreign born workers to call their boss, or the owner to get in contact with the alarm co., but all I got was "No! no telfono!"

Ok, I'll call the office and let them know what's going on.
The office made a note and closed the ticket. I left.


I wonder what they said to the cops when they came to investigate the alarm?


Not that it's BAD that you can't communicate with anyone, ya know...

I don't know how many of you read the "Jawa Report"

But Ragnar has the best and probably truest post out there about the amnesty bill.
I'm posting it verbatem so you can read it here...and because this blog does need some good writing once in a while.


Why the Railroad Effort on the Amnesty Bill?

We can all understand the push by big business to keep their steady flow of illegal laborers coming in, strengthening their bargaining position against blue-collar working class Americans. Then again, they already have that today in droves. Why the sudden balls-to-the-wall push to get it all "kosher" right now? Mickey Kaus forwards a theory:

Chertoff and Kyl both seem to have answered that question recently, Kyl in his Wall Street Journal interview and Chertoff on Fox News yesterday: because businesses are starting to worry about efforts to enforce immigration laws at the local level. One state in the vanguard of that effort is Kyl's (and McCain's) home state of Arizona, where the legislature has passed numerous laws (usually vetoed) on the issue, and where the public voted for Prop 200 back in 2004.

To me that says something far more ominous than that Congress is being disingenuous or naïve on the matter. Far from simple being empty promises, this amnesty bill is actually a blatant attempt to head off any attempts at enforcement at all.

I think this is probably right. I think big business realizes that voters are going to extract some very explicit and unequivocal promises from their candidates next year. I think they realize at this point that a number of their champions on this bill are not coming back to Washington after the next election.

Big agriculture and big construction realize that they'll be faced with a new Commander-in-Chief, Democrat or Republican, who will likely have made a list of unequivocal promises to the voters during the campaign. Given the opportunity to build up public goodwill with a series of big, high-profile immigration busts in her first six months of office, does anyone think that President Hillary would pass it up? If she's anywhere near as calculating as her reputation suggests, there's not a chance she'll pass up that opportunity. A Republican President would feel less need for high-profile token efforts, but may bring in a Justice Department that actually cares about national security. (How crazy would that be?) If you're an employer who's been skirting the law for years with a wink and a nod, this change in the winds has to be keeping you up at night--with good reason. Some CEOs looking at public opinion polls and knowing their employment rolls haven't been even close to right with God, have to be dealing with some serious heartburn at the thought of angry villagers at the corporate gates demanding massive fines and/or a few years in federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.

If the employers can just get across the line on this, they've significantly reduced their exposure. This Amnesty Bill represents a sort of "get out of jail free" card for these executives. Whether it'll actually work out that way is another matter. They see the writing on the wall, and they're pulling out the stops to protect their own hides, even if they have to wreck their own country to do it.

Of course, jamming this piece of shit down our throats only adds to the long list of reasons we're already pissed as hell at the employers and their elected cronies.

This may be your time, fellas. You may have the upper hand now. The men in power are your boys, and you may get them to vote how you like, even against the clear will of the people who sent them there.

Enjoy it while it lasts, but don't forget it for a second: our time is coming. You have the cash, but we have the numbers. A whole lot of us have damn long memories. We're gonna remember every bit of this sordid ordeal.

And payback, as they say, is a bitch.


(UPDATE)
I just saw this post at Cassy Fianos' blog about Tancredo sending Mc Cain a plate of Nacho's when they happened to be eating at the same resteraunt.

I wonder if any big thing could be done about sending your yes-men a tortilla?
Easy to mail, and you could send a short note, too.."Dear Kay---NO to Amnesty" would fit nicely on a burrito size one.

Just curious here...

Does Texas have any kind of recall option for our U.S. Senators?
Just wondering because if Kay Bailey-Hutchinson does vote for the illegal legalization bill- that she doesn't deserve another five years representing Texas up in D.C.

If she votes for the Amnesty bill, she's not representing her constituants, or the best intrests of America. She's representing Geo. bush and his handlers.

I hope she votes against the bill, but if she does- in five years when she's up for re-election things'll be even worse; but then she'll probably have a nice cushey job as head of ICE to slide into instead of asking us dirty unenlightened, racist trolls to vote for her once more.

I wonder if that would be possible today?

There is a story about Navajo Code Talkers in Yahoo news.

They used the Navajo language as an unbreakable code in the Pacific theater of WWII (for you recent Gov't school grads).

I KNOW that our 'western' Indians, Amerinds,,,whatever- would run to defend our country, no matter what self-hating liberals would think. Unlike those Anti-American coastal Libs, most of 'real' Americans want to keep America as ...American as possible. They might be a type of sovereign nation, but they're still Americans- who know just how good America is.

Anyway, that native language code thing. As much intel that has been dumped onto the internet and all kinds of different memory banks, it makes me wonder if some obscure language would work today- or how long? I mean most languages have been recorded somewhere, right? Your tax dollars at work to preserve the vanishing human existence of (insert PC tribe here) for posterity.

In a smaller bit of headline news

5 U.S. Soliders were killed in the Green Zone in Iraq.

What hasn't made the news as much, since it's an internal problem (and not one of Geo. Bush's making),,,21 people have been killed in L.A. alone last week.

A Democratic city in a Democrat controlled state. With the Liberal enabling lack of moral standards that do nothing the even slow it down.

You know, kick them out of the Union?

Let Mexico have it back?

I just heard as I was coming home that Califoristan's Leg voted to try forcing our president to pull our troops out of Iraq. Actually it authorises a general vote...to force the president to pull our troops out of Iraq.

The sanctuary city idea, the Pavlovian Bush Derangement Syndrome, the Anti-military polices on unmentioned major cities. Not to mention the complete abandonment of the U.S. judicial code in other cities overrun with illegals.

They've been forcing their Socialist will on the rest of America for decades. When is America going to say "ENOUGH! You get your Liberal Communist loving mEcha @ss out of our house and live with what you've got. Stop polluting the rest of America with your foul ideas."

Oh, and Hollywood, we don't really need you, either.

Boy, that kinda sucked

I had to take one of our directional bores up to Abilene yestrday.

I was supposed to have taken it up Fri.
Then Sat.- mebby.

Then Sunday night I got the call to be rady to go first thing Monday, and hop a plane back.
When Monday rolled around, the big boss still didn't know if he was going to need it( they ran into some -almost-sedimentary rock with the smaller bore). I was hanging around from 7:15 AM till my boss got an answer at 11:30. Bring it up.
On the way up to Abilene, I stopped in Kerville (went back with a flat, actually) and lost 2 hours at Discount Tire.

Back on the road - with not a cloud visible- nor a radio to listen to. Or A/C.

I finally made it to Abilene about 6:30, and helped the other crew get their bore re-aimed (with a pothole, a chain and an excavator). There was Bentonite (drilling mud)over everything that was near the hole.

Did I mention it was supposed to be a one day and back thing? So I didn't bring "work" cloths- or a change of...

Anyway, the place the boss was going to put us up at was unexpectedly full, so was the next, and the next. At 10:30PM, we finally got a room and I had the pleasure of trying to make myself halfway presentable for the flight home in the morning. Leaving at 6:30AM.

Well, apparently American Airlines needs to do more training on landing in the rain, because there were about four flights diverted to Abilene from DFW.
We left about 2 hours late, and were delayed when we got to DFW, too.
I finally got to San ANtonio anout 1:45 this afternoon.

In the grand scheme of things, it wasn't *that* bad, but I'm a spoiled American who's used to things going flawlesly all the time.

I'm tired, I'm going to drink too many beers and go to bed early. Which happens to be something like PDB is doing in the abcense of his wife..in the search for the perfect magurita.

I mean c'mon now, it's been over two years since ol' Chocolate-boy Nagan left his people to fend for themselves during (and after0 the storm.

After reading this story about Katrina still killling N'awlines residents, I just have to wonder when I'll see the next part,,,,the one about needing a dumptruck load of money to help set things right.

How come the Big Easy is the only one with the problem?

There are high rates of mental health problems among the survivors and previous research has found that mental disorders are predictors of earlier death rates," Kessler said. "So putting the two together in New Orleans is not surprising."

Local mental health professionals say they are encountering more people with psychological problems.

"We're seeing triple the number of people with mental health problems as we were before Katrina," said Leah Hedrick, social worker at Ochsner Hospital. "Depression, suicidal, anxiety, abuse of drugs and alcohol, and along with that comes a lot more physical problems."


Maybe it's because Uncle Sugar too care of every worry they ever had, and they didn't need to grow up and realize that life can be a chit sammich sometimes. The government
fell on it's ass isn't taking care of them the way they'd like, and they never had to do anything on their own. Now they have to, and don't like it.

But I just can't find *WHAT* Nancy Pelosi saw on her trip to Greenland that "convinced" her that global warming was real.

Was it, maybe the 1200 year-old remains of Viking Scandinavian farmsteads that had been engulfed by snow and ice? Remember your history?

I don't think anyone with an IQ of better than a turtle would argue that the climate isn't changing. Always has, always will. What the disagreement is, is the CAUSE of it. The earth has rotational and orbital variances. The SUN also has it's hiccoughs, too....hot flashes, call it what you will.


The sun isn't Vegas, what happens there doesn't stay there.
