Just like the 93% of 0bama advisors

I have absolutely no experience creating jobs or running any business.

I however, have enough common sense to know that private business needs stability.
in order to get private investors, you need to be able to show that they'll make some kind of money off of their investment.
...as unpopular as that is in our new centralized governments five year plan.

That's why I, at least, understand why private investors aren't running to support GMAC and their thieving Union thugs.
Why put in good money when it'll just get stolen from you......when the government isn't coercing you into it?

Well that sucks

With a capital X.

I was just looking over the newest 1040 instructions and found out that the only new allowable tax credit for housing is the New House Credit.
The existing homeowners credit didn't make it into Tax Cheat Tim Geithners tax form.
I guess those Lbs in congress would rather f*ck up the entire conomy than help people keep just a little of their money.

...Oh! Wait!! That homeowners credit might give THE RICH a little tax relief too, so nevermindit'snotgonnahappen.

BUT, Karens unemployment is tax free until she takes her first $2400 home.

,,,And here I was hoping I'd get something for NOT buying too much house and then defaulting on it.

That was a bit surreal today

I turned on Hannity this afternoon and over the truck noise (in the boom truck) thought I heard Snakehead and no Sean.

I got into my truck and thought WTF?? James Carville is hosting Hannity?

No, it was a new guy named Herman Cain out of Georgia.
That Gawgian accent sure sounds like that blithering idiot from down around N'awlins way.

Swift action from 'The Won'

So, the political hack we have in DeeCee is playing catch-up on this security thing after blowing it off for his golf and emergency motorcade runs through the streets of Hawaii.
He wants a report on his desk by tomorrow. Where it will sit until he decides he's had enough time off- just like that Pork laden stimulus bill that had the fierce urgency of NOW!

I'm not some kind of security expert (but neither are those Apparatchik's you surround yourself with), but I'd say that part of the problem is 'The Wall' that you put back in place to protect your Chicago pals from prosecution.
You know, the one that prevents .gov law enforcement from talking to each other, the one that Jamie Gorelick put up to protect her boss Bill Clinton.
The same Jamie that was on that farce called the 9-11 commission.

He got on an international flight with just a carry-on (not sure how common that is,,,but) and WITHOUT A PASSPORT.
His own dad reported him to both Nigerian AND American anti terrorist agencies.

Also, although no one else wants to tell you this, it was the absolute bumbling that's been going on since January 20 of this year that gutted our intelligence ability- because they don't want to be prosecuted by your fellow socialist Eric Holder!

The new word of the day is..........

"PIVOT"

That seems to be the newest talking point that you'll soon be tired of hearing from all the Obots in newsland.


Pivot, , , that's what a Quarterback does right before he hands off the ball to someone doing the hard run- isn't it?

The first rule of blogging

Post every day!

What's that word....?

Oh yeah, CONTENT!

As you can see by the timestamp, I'm here when I should be earning money.
That wet, cold front has come through and all I accomplished today was to move a storage trailer from the yard to a jobsite while it was still dry enough.

Dry enough that the average San Antonio drivers wet weather 'drive-it-like-you-stole-it' instinct hadn't kicked in yet.

I've also been having hinge issues with the drivers door on the S-10 -the bushings keep breaking apart, so I've been living with the sagging door. Well, this morning at 0'dark 6AM, the bushings on the top hinge both decided it would be a good time to fall out. So, with suitable language- I hefted the door back up so as to shut it for the drive to work...with LOTS of wind noise.

When I got to work- much to my mental well being, I discovered that somewhere in that 50 mile trip, the pin fell out.
Now I have a screwdriver tip from a 5-in-1 tool holding my door in the approximate place.
I'm torn between fixing it with the *Genuine GM parts* that have continually failed, bolts and home made bushings,,,or probably best that black poly gas pipe I have a chunk of- it's really tough and self lubricating. Plus I can form it with a utility knife (or for you lamestream media types...a BOXCUTTER!!!!!

Well, it's not 'The wildwood Flower'

And being that it's really a counter-counter-culture song, I guess it won't be getting much airplay.
But Ray Stevens the singer of such hard hitting songs as "The squirrel went berserk" and "They call him the freak" --don't look Martha!
Has come out with a message to the Dems.



It's gotta be bad when an apolitical humorist comes out gunning for you.
(stolen from Shoprat)

But, then again, if I'd come in wasted and did something like this....

I'd be fired instead of being re-elected after going through the requisite 'rehab'/

HEY! Maybe they should have some kind of SOBRIETY standard before they vote on what's going to affect EVERYONE in America.

How does this sound?
Lets revoke everything they voted on since,,,ohh,,,,June 2009 and have them blow a breathalyzer before voting to re=enact the same failed giveaways.

Things are looking ugly in Iran

It looks like the anti Theocracy movement has had their fill.
There are riots in the streets and the security forces are shooting people dead.

I joined the Navy soon after those 'students' took over our embassy there, and after watching Dhimmy Carter send a poorly planned, manned and executed face saving rescue attempt there.
By the time he'd had four years of slashing the military budget, those helicopters were the best the military could come up with- they went out needing repairs, They're probably still sitting in the desert where they were left when the last of our ....foreigne respectability pulled back to wait Ronald Reagan.

Now, three decades later, students the Iranian population is turning against their repressive government.
...And the guy who's sitting in a borrowed (not rented) $28 million mansion won't say anything because A) it's against a dictatorship and B) because it shows that government actually has to listen to the people.

Lets all step into our wayback machine

Shall we?

As anyone who's not had the Lamestream Media as their primary source of information knows- there was an attempted flight bombing over Detroit on Christmas.
A day and a half ago.

When 9-11-01 happened George Bush kept reading to elementary students...because that's all he could do at the immediate moment- and the Left let loose with everything they had about his uncaring incompetence.

Remember?

They still bring it up.


Over 36 hours later, where is the TelePrompTer Messiah's speech to the nation condemning this action?
Did they forget the TelePrompter and he can't give a national speech?

Given the way they've handled everything else, I wouldn't put it out of mind.


Thank ,,,ummmm,,,whoever that we have someone of Barry's' persuasive power making even more friends, so we don't have to worry about terrorists making a statement in AmeriKKKa.

An air quality PSA

It is not a good idea to feed your dogs the unwanted pretzels from the Chex Mix.

It's either that or the small amount of green bean casserole that's causing the problem here.

To all of you

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I see Michells' fashion secretary found her a new Christmas dress:

Dear Representative Ciro Rodriguez

Hi,
I realize it's kinda late for this, but I wanted to give you a Christmas present.
I decided to gift you with this because you and your staff have probably never read it.

Merry Christmas!

Just out of curiosity

Does anyone think a bad temp sending unit would light a SERVICE ENGINE SOON light?

It just came on after work tonight and I saw the water temp gauge was only reading half of what it usually does.
I'm wondering if that three wire sending unit is causing it.

Who do you think it is?

Someone in the Supreme Courts is either getting leaned on, or shortly will get leaned on hard to resign.
That someone is going to be either a conservative Justice or a moderate that actually takes the Constitution seriously.

Why would someone try to force a Judge to resign, you ask incredulously?

Because it's 'The Chicago Way', and the fact that several states Attorneys General are sending a letter to Congress challenging this communistic takeover of 20% of Americas economy is why.

Obama needs a majority of reliable sycophants to rule on those upcoming 10th and 14th Ammendment lawsuits the way he wants them to.

Looks like the only thing free anymore

...is school lunches.

Haloscan got bought out (or sold out) or something, and the new owner is going the same way as blogrolling. In that if you want what you used to get for free- now you have to pay.

My dashboard says I have until Jan. second to decide what to do. I already know- I'll drop back to Bloggers comments, since I'm paying by letting Google stash everything anyone in the house has ever gone online for.

Whoever has me on blogroll please drop me a comment, since I'm NOT going to pay for the privilege of seeing who's linking me. Besides, this blog isn't worth paying for.

Now how much of that haloscan embedded HTML do I have to remove?

Saturday, December 19, 2009

"Yeah, we did it"

We beat our prisoners to death, that's how we roll.

Deal with it!

At least we won't be condemned by a bunch of pantywaist Libs for stacking our naked prisoners in pyramids, or worse yet having some skanky ho pointing and laughing at their junk.

Howie Long is on TeeWee

He's shilling for the Siverado in that commercial that has him dogging the other guys F-150.
You've seen it, right?

Anyway he's going on about how the EPA says that the Silverado gets such kick-ass gas mileage.

Question- The .gov pretty much OWNS Gm, doesn't it? Except where they UAW got to steal 70% of the legitimate stockholders property.

Wouldn't this same government have no problem getting those 'created or saved' job numbers from the *CZAR of pulling numbers out of his ass* use the same criteria for their EPA numbers when they want to sell their chit?

I wouldn't be surprised if the Silverado actually got the same or less in actual usage.

Sorry, newr is NOT always better

Take Kellie Pickles "Santa Baby"

and compare it to the original:


Of course Kellie is much more photogenic than Eartha, so she'll get alot more milage.

Well it IS Laredo...

Not much of a stretch to call it Mexico del Norte.

It will be the largest American city without a book store.
Not that 95% of it's spanish speaking residents really know what a book is anyway....


And YES, it is that bad- it's just not quite as bad as Brownsville and El Paso for the
third world charm you'd expect from the barrios of ohh,,,lets say,,, Boys Town.

And Jerry, you don't need to know where THAT is.

The conversion of energy

Fossil fuels contain carbon from their expired forbears- I understand that.

Refining them concentrates the 'good' stuff.- I understand that.

Burning fossil fuel releases the bottled up carbon. -ok, if you say so.

Planting trees offsets that natural gas that plants need to live.- I need to get a couple thousand acres to plant a crop of 'cash-for-trees'.

What I'm not sure of is, is that carbon ,,,like burned and somehow exponentially weighs more than it did in it's liquid fuel state?

The reason I'm asking is that some Canadian ecoweiniee is planting almost 1,200 trees to offset 0bamas trip to Copenhagen. That's 196 tons of carbon, supposedly. How much fuel would it take to fly DeeCee to Copenhagen?

Do me a favor please

They are Democrats or Dems (or any other nickname you want).

When you talk about them remember that there is NOTHING democratic about them.
Please try to find another descriptive.

"I know this road like the back of my hand!"

Kewell guy, so do I.
The reason I'm going 50 MPH in this thick fog is that I don't want to meet a 2500 pound steer in the middle of the highway, and if I do- I want to be able to stop in time.

But, go ahead and blow past me like I'm standing still, I'm not the one going to be paying a $500 deductible.

Saturday, December 12, 2009

That explains it!

Sorry I'm late with this, but I just got reminded of it a while ago
,,,And Google is hiding the other pics in the 'WTF Michelle' image search- because I've seen two other different pics of her unsecured junk.

Anyway, I think this explains her (gag) 'stunningly sculpted' guns that the impressionable media lackeys are admiring.

The 0bama recovery

I don't know what the *Czar of pulling numbers out of your @ss* has to say about it, but the Unicorn Rider says we're on the way to recovery.

If we can just spend our way out of bankruptcy.

Our largish electrical company just announced yesterday that we're going to 32 hour weeks for a while, since even the San Antonio economy is shrinking.
Our Boss has lots of in with the local school districts around here, and is almost the exclusive contractor that H.E.B. uses for their construction and maintenance needs.

There are no new jobs in the pipeline.


But that's ok, We'll just bump our credit line another 1.8 TRILLION dollars and slap a bureaucratic straitjacket on the economy for the next 30 years with the new 0bamacracy.

Call before you dig drill

I guess those enlightened Swedes -that we're supposed to emulate- aren't as advanced as I thought.

Here, we have almost every utility you can think of buried- especially in cities.
We also have a mandatory 'One Call' system in Texas.

The way it works is that you call a central hub and then the utilities in the area come out and mark their lines, so you won't maybe drill through a SUBWAY TUNNEL.

Zen and the art of job creation

So the Inept One wants ideas on getting more jobs opened up.
Given that every job his Porkulus package 'created or saved' came in somewhere in the window of $250,000 and $750,000- depending on what the Czar of pulling numbers out of his @ss says.

I have an idea that will help cut down on 0bamas newly discovered thrift bone.

Let me have a grant of $100K $120,000 (since I'll have to pay taxes) and I'll be sure there is a job open at my place of employment as soon as the check clears the bank. I'll even be generous and make it a two year opening to show my bipartisanship.



The Unicorn Rider is making lots of new friends in Oslo, isn't he?
AND there are still people making excuses for his selfishness lack of grace

Kearnies!

Bugs.
Split bolts.

It's only ok to leave them naked like this if they're on a bare conductor at least 35' in the air.
These are going inside a light pole.


What would be nice is to first wrap them with the liner that so thoughtfully comes with the self fusing splicing tape:


The splicing tape is wrapped to provide electrical insulation, a bit of water resistance and a rubber buffer to any sharp parts that may want to pierce the outer wrap.


This plastic electric tape that you are most familiar with is mostly to protect the soft rubber tape.


The reason I like to use a liner before putting the rubber tape on, is the fact that I've had too much of peeling that self fusing rubber tape off when it begins to adhere to the metal Kearney at a molecular level.

Making the best of it

I'm making stew tonight.
As I'm using Walmart meat- I just cut it up, threw in the potatoes, carrots and the spices.
I didn't add water because I knew that all the water Wally-world ads to their meat would cook out almost enough for a nice thick stew.

When I was a SeaBee

We shot M-16A1's.
I shot either Expert or Marksman/Sharpshooter (whatever the missing Expert by 2- 3 poins was).
We were taught by Marine Gunnies about how to properly hold our weapons for maximum accuracy (and concealment).

I remember being told, when standing-to keep my left elbow tucked to my ribcage to help support barrel with less wiggling. So when I shot then, my left hand was not a far distance from the mag well.
I still shoot this way.


Anyway, Rob has a post about a new forward sloping grip to replace that tacitikeewl vertical grip on EBRs.
I was going to make a snarky comment about paying $50 to let them put your hand on the fore stock, but clicked the link. Dood, they have science and stuff to back up their new grip-that's-almost-like-oldskool-hand-on-the-stock $35 FSG (plus tax and new hardware).

After looking at their site and seeing where they're all putting their hands (as far forward as they can), I know I'd probably not be able to get near the center of mass that way.
I'd probably be lucky to keep them all on the paper at 25 yds.
And if I'm not standing, I still wrap the sling around my forearm if I have one.



My pistol grip is completely f*cked-up as you can see in the header.
(I can also make a dinner plate size grouping at 25 yds with it.)

I don't care about Tiger

But this is funny, and you know it.

So are these jokes I stole from GuyK:
One: Tiger Woods is so rich that he owns lots of expensive cars. Now he has a hole in one.
Two: What's the difference between a car and a golf ball? Tiger can drive a ball 400 yards.
Three: Tiger Woods wasn't seriously injured in the crash, but he's still below par.
Four:: What were Tiger Woods and his wife doing out at 2.30 in the morning? They went clubbing
Five: Tiger Woods crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree. He couldn’t decide between a wood and an iron.
Six: Perhaps Tiger should be using a driver?
Seven: This is the first time Tiger’s ever failed to drive 300 yards
Eight: Apparently, Tiger admitted this crash was the closest shave he’s ever had. So Gillette has dropped his contract.
Nine: After a wayward drive, Tiger Woods found water before nestling behind a tree
Ten: Apparently, the only person who can beat Tiger Woods with a golf club is his wife

How inappropriate!

A little judicious editing, a little cut and splice and WALLAH.

An R-rated "Frosty"



Now we're hearing about cBS running this as a trailer. Has anyone actually *SEEN* it?
Because the only way I can see this geting on cBS is that this CD got mixed up with the one *NOT* meant for the station Christmas Xmas party.

Ummm.....maybenot

Politico has an idea that those Blue Dogs retiring from D.C. might probably be a good thing.

See we the Republicans will probably gain seats in the 2010 elections- BUT those Dems don't have to worry about getting re-elected again, do they?

Tennessee Rep. John Tanner’s decision to step down at the end of his term has Democrats worried that a trickle of retirements will turn into a flood.

Democrats won their majority in 2006 — and built on it in 2008 — in large part by running conservative Democrats in Republican-leaning districts. But with Rep. Dennis Moore (D-Kan.) and Tanner now heading for the exits, there’s growing concern that the party’s strategy may be unraveling just in time for 2010.

“It’s the beginning of an avalanche on our side,” one Democratic strategist said. “Morale is bad, and we’re seeing guys in their 50s and 60s, who have some time left, who can make some money and have a phase two in their careers.”

Which means that they can vote for 0bamakare without even having to step foot in the state(s) they just screwed over and then laterally transfer their cr@p to a new job guaranteed by 'the management'in some capacity 'to make a difference' for their vote.

Oh, how nice

Another fine idea for the Democrats to steal.

I'm sure they'll frame it so it'll magically lower everyones taxes.

Dateline Checheneya:

It looks like several somebodies are going to be very dead soon.

Because unlike President Urkel, Putin isn't going to let those islamic terrorists get away with bombing two of his trains.

Especially after they bragged about it.

"This operation was prepared and executed along with other acts of sabotage... against a set of strategically important sites in Russia, on the orders of Caucasus Emir Dokku Umarov," said a statement on KavkazCenter.com.

The taking of Flight 297

I'm sure you've seen the "real" stories of what happened on Flight 297 Atlanta to Houston by now. Or you will.

The enhanced story goes from an unruly passenger who wouldn't get off his cell phone to a dry-run terrorist hijacking replete with heroes , names and bureaucratic indifference.

As a matter of fact, I don't think I've ever met a muslim (and won't be looking for one), but still given their history- wouldn't trust them any farther than I could throw a truck.

That being said- Snopes gives it a mixed verdict.

So make up your own mind.
Personally, I think we should stop all islamic immigration unless they can prove their pro Americanism.
And all you dirty Somalis who snuck in under a fake asylum grant,,,AMF.

I see by the intranetz

That 0bama has really pissed off his base -the lunatic fringe- with his paltry 30,000 troops for only 18 months.
...AND no change in the kid glove treatment of captured terrorists.
...OR the ROE that tie both hands of our fighters.



So now the Anti-American Liberals in the Congress are talking about withholding funding for them.

Let me put on my shamans turban and make some predictions.

First- Alqueda and the taliban will make some big attacks on the new troops, then pull back to cool their heels for the last 12 months of the occupation. Where the loyal lapdogs of the White house Media will crow about how we're winning in A'stan,,,and maybe we can get out even earlier.

Second- Both civilians and the .gov workers know they'll be hung out to dry 18 months from now, so why bust your @ss to help NATO?

Third- everything will quiet down waiting for the last chopper, then it'll look like the Khmer Rouge on steroids.

Fourth- The UN will turn a blind eye to the atrocities because it's only moslims being moslims....kids- what can you do?


I've been right before in my predictions- bookmark me and see a year and a half from now.


OHH, and Lastly- Himself seeing how everyone knows what a whimp he is- will do something stupidly agressive with a disillusioned military and a weak opponent and utterly crush them just to show 'you don't mess with the 0-man'.

Should I?

Should I respond to this craigslist ad and charge the cr@p out of him because he's such a dumb@ss?

I NEED TU FIND OR HAVE U MAKE JEWELRY CABINET



I am looking for a armoire(jewelry cabinet)If u can make one or have a dark asian one email me. (redacted)@yahoo.com


This guy might be some kind of supergenius, but he sounds like an illiterate fool that I could get away with slapping some crappy wood together and charging custom furniture prices for.

The speach that stirred a nation

Sorry, it didn't happen at West Point tonight.

Not once did it rise to the national pride of self preservation and defeating the evil that this one did.

In spite of the teleprompters...



And I didn't hear any exit strategy there, or weighing the cost/benefit of winning vs sneaking out either.

A PSA for the day

During a power outage, a flashlight is your friend.
A candle will work, too- but lets DON'T use white gas in a frying pan.

K? Thnksbyyyyy.
