Why are we still wasting our tax dollars on the TSA?

The hugely intrusive and bungling bureaucracy that hasn't stopped a terrorist in over ten years now can't tell if a passport was expired a year ago.

An American passport.  (caution, video auto starts when you get there)

And we're paying HOW much for these people?
AND they want to expand into every part of our lives????

Oh, the poor little house Tribble

She's some kind of short faced long-haired cat...Persian- I guess.


She has doubled her weight from the time she was rescued and now looks like a fat raccoon without the striped tail.
I made deep fried gizzards tonight- almost as good as *Chester's Golden Fried* but available after 11AM.

The dogs got some and so did the littlest dog.

Poor Stompy could only smell because she can't (or doesn't know how to) eat anything that's not processed into little stars or fish shapes.

Dear New Orleans

It looks like Isaac is going to visit you.
So I have to say in all sincerity 'Go f*ck yourselves."

I'm STILL tired of hearing about N`awlins and how G.W. Bush hated black people and your whining about hoew we...America somehow OWES you something, and that it's our responsibility to take care of grown adults every want.

I hope your chocolate Jeezus does what you want him to do, but a lot has changed since the last time: You have a Republican Governor and a Republican Mayor who will do what they can to actually HELP you--instead of waiting for days to declare an emergency so that FEMA is late and the president looks bad.

To steal an expression from Leeann

...And not a f*ck was given all day. (On that end of the trench...)



Leeann



So, please elaborate WaPo

as to just *how* this electric company will be able to control my A/C without shutting off my oven.

Because at my house BOTH are on the same 220V lines.

...Or do you have some super sekrit way of telling my A/C  to stop working and leave everything else on?


Yeah- I didn't think so- because I have STUPID appliances that are too old to join Big Brother in the pursuit of .GOV controlling every aspect of my life.

BUT don't worry citizen, only the scoff-laws will  be affected!

Hurricane Isaac on track to N'awlins?

This ought to be interesting.

Now we'll be able to see just how well a 'chocolate' president can take care of a 'chocolate' city.

Because, naturally a Democrat will be sure to make FEMA perform miracles for the .GOV dependents who reside on the dole and depend on Democrats to take care of their every need.

Good thing 0bama doesn't hate blacks.

Can't he just use his godlike powers to like....reduce the rise of the oceans until Isaac is done?

Happy National Dog Day

Yes they have a site and everything.

Ya know, I shouldn't be saying this-

Because it might make some Lib question my racist attitude...

I'd really like to have a couple beers with AlphonZO Rachel.

Friday, August 24, 2012

Replace your divot!

Mr. president-

He looks like hes someone trying too hard to be cool for the press corpse, doesnt he?

So, riddle me this...

If everyone who doesn't worship the ground the Boy-King walks on is racist.

...why is it that before the slut eruptions- Herman Cain was doing so well in the racist Republican primaries?

AND, since he quit, where are all the WHITE women accusing him of sexual...whatever?

Stupidity leading to overtime

So we were supposed to be getting a delivery of 6" PVC conduit this morning.
I got called to come to the yard and wait to offload the trailer because the ruck was just clearing the commercial vehicle inspection ---on a Federal Military installation.

So I go back and get the forks on the backhoe and wait...

...and wait

...and wait

...and grease the machine

...and wait (and punch out for lunch [at 8:30AM because the Ferderal beareaucrats say we HAVE to take lunch so we now have to spend an extra 30 min working in the heat])

...Until I call the boss (who's supposed to be escorting him to the yard) and find out that he's through inspection, but still sitting at the inspection yard.


..."Just wait there till he decides to move and I'll call you".

..."F*ck it- he's still sitting there, go back to work and when he's had his nap, we'll unload it".

Somewhere around 1:30 (1330 for you military types) Boss tells me that they're sending another driver who'll get here about 4- 4:30...BTW, when is your 40 up?
--At 4:30, or 4:15 depending how you look at that :09 on Sat.
--Um, why are they sending another driver?
...That dumb-ass got busted for drugs when they checked his truck.
--NO! He knew hes was coming onto Lackland the sekrit .GOV installation, and didn't drop them off somewhere? Gawd what a dumb-ass, now he's looking at Federal problems.

So I spent over 13 hours at work, but only got paid for 12.75 because bureaucrats just HAVE to micro-manages adult workers.
I ended up with 42 hours, and am off tomorrow.

NOW, as a PSA to all you non-driving plodders.
When you're driving west on HWY 90 in TX and the sun is  in your eyes- get in the FARGING granny lane if you want to go under 75 MPH.
Don't sit in the hammer lane and pace the RV going 65- it pisses people off (really).
Then they'll tailgate you until you come onto a nice long left turn cutout and pass your slow-ass there--kicking up grass and gravel as they do.

-I'm going to try that next time ;-)

Enjoy the dialogue

Have a listen to the companies best workers:


I swear, if my dogs had opposable thumbs- they'd get more done in a day than the other three...and they'd listen better.



(BTW, spell-check: opposable *IS* a real word) (Even Google agrees)

This is not a parody

I heard this on the Joe Pags "Weekend" show yesterday coming home from work:
The iWON called a N.M. radio station for an interview


Here's a shorter version if you don't want to be forced to listen to the underexposed Chicago Jeezus:

200 years ago today

The USS Constitution dismasted and beat the HMS Guerriere like a redheaded stepchild in the War of 1812.

This was when she got her name "Old Ironsides" from the way the cannon balls bounced off her 21" thick oaken sides.



She will be making way under her own sail today, the second time in over a century to make a victory lap outside Boston harbor.

Here comes Honey-Boo-Boo????

WTF does TLC think they're doing?

All I see on the previews is a bunch of fat, inbred hillbillies and some pig.

One of the snippets they have is "You'll laugh untill you cry"-ET

UMMM, no--- I cry that this crap is actually going to be some kind of hit in this America.

From FB


Lets do it again, only harder this time!

Because GM is going to need another bail-out.

On top of the one where we *the taxpayer* are still out some $26 BILLION from the first one in wothless stocks.

Stocks that were basically stolen from the rightful owners so that the Chicago Jeezus could repay his UAW union thugs for getting him set up at the Chicago-on-the-Potomac.

So are we going to at least get a Tee that says something like "I didn't get a pick-up from the last bail-out, but at least this time I got this Tee-shirt."

Just give him a No-Shave chit

Then you don't have to be getting lead around in legal circles because of the Army jihadi.
Thats what is going to happen anyhow with that Armed forces court of appeals gets done.

Then Hasan can go onto his next set of legal/muslim pranks to get more time away from the Courts Martial he's looking at.
Because it's all a game now that he's decided to go all Islamic fundi, and anything he can do to screw America is what he's all about.

Dude! How old are you?

SRSLY- you've got to be in your 40's.



And getting dropped for trying to get an autograph from that skank?

We put our cable on hiatus for a while

Because frankly, we couldn't pay the DirectTV fees.

Now that I'm getting paid good money to run a backhoe and try to push some west side denizens to do work- we can start paying for content again.

The problem is- Karen got a Netflix account and there is absolutely nothing I really want to pay $65/MO for on TeeWee.
I'm watching old Discovery shows and the History Channel before it became the "American Pawn-Pickers *on ICE* channel.
Tonight I'm watching Discovery's "How the Universe works" with the Big bang as the center attraction.

They have all kinds of smart people up there telling us how the universe started from nothing and expanded into what we know now.


But we ALREADY knew what happened- we just didn't have lots of smart people telling us what happened, we just had some monks writing their lives away to tell us what happened.
...And it's pretty accurate to what the smart scientists are telling us.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

I'm sure the next set of shows will prove Geneses right again when the planets form...
 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
 

So, everything old is new again?

They didn't say if the princess had a tramp stamp for her  ... admirers to appreciate.

I'm glad to see

That people are starting to get involved (or curious) since Paul Ryan was #7 on Bings popular searches this morning.

Sunday, August 12, 2012

A little FYI

In case you're making anything with bananas in it-
-one banana is about 1/2 cup if the recipe insists on "not" telling you how many bananas you'll need for two cups of banana mash.

ALSO-
  • Why are we not supposed to keep bananas in the refrigerator
  • or paper sacks
  • what is the difference between baking powder and baking soda? (aside from the acid reflux thing)

H8rs gotta H8

I see were already getting the love from Libs on Romeys choice for veep in tweets and in their Lamestream Media pontifications.

What's it going to be like when they catch their collective breath?

You know- you people really need to take a chill pill. Just relax and quit hyperventilating for a bit, let the oxygen get to your brain.

The MSM don't wste any time do they?

Romney picks Ryan for Veep and the MSM is all over his lack of experience.

For one thing, Ryan has no significant private-sector experience. Besides summer jobs working at McDonald’s or at his family’s construction company, or waiting tables as a young Washington staffer, Ryan has none of the business-world experience Romney frequently touts as essential for governing. In the run-up to his first campaign for Congress, in 1998, that gap was enough of a concern for Ryan that he briefly became a “marketing consultant” at the family business, an obvious bit of résumé puffing.

He's got MORE private work experience that your Chicago Jeezus does- even now.

But Ryan’s Washington experience is also light, at least for a potential President—which, after all, is the main job description of a Vice-President. Ryan has worked as a think-tank staffer and Congressman, but he’s never been in charge of a large organization, and he has little experience with foreign policy.
~snip~
Who else does this remind us of?

Given how Sarah Palin was criticized for her lack of such experience, I’m surprised that Romney would pick someone whose ability to immediately step into the top job is open to question.
Well...YA! She isn't black and from Chicago- so the only way she could be more qualified was to have a questionable birth certificate.

WTF is it with Liberals and cupcakes?

Even before I had any idea about politics, I really didn't like cupcakes.
They were too small and crumbly; dry and didn't have enough frosting on them to make them appealing to me.

Jumping in feet first

From that brand new railroad trestle.

The TX DMV is going to  stop using paper titles sometime next year.
They'll ALL be recorded on computers...somewhere.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has begun the process of replacing paper titles with ‘e-Titles,’ which will help motor vehicle owners keep track of their titles and make it harder for crooks to counterfeit titles.

  The e-Title system is expected to launch by fall of next year.

Ok, so how will this work when the inevitable h4x9r decides to play inside the DMV computers?
What about the entire system crashing?
“As we built out our new automation system, we will be able to sue your Texas Department of Public Safety driver license number as your unique identifier to make sure we find all the vehicles in the DMV motor vehicle database that are under your name,” said Randy Elliston, who heads Titles and Registration at the DMV.

Can I print my own title?
What about buying a used car? How do I know their title is good?

One last thought about the douche-bag Adam Smith

Then hopefully we can forget about him...except for the Google machine and his future employers.

Anyone who makes an "apology" video and spends 7 minutes lecturing you is still a douche.

Can you imagine going to work on your first day of a job and seeing that prick as your boss? I'd think about quitting right there on the spot.

Discontinued Olympic competitions

I was over at Legal Insurrection (but he doesn't know it because I've never signed up for anything) and he's got a list of abandoned sports of the Olympics here.

Motor-boating?
SRSLY?

How did that work?

Did your opponent pick the 'boatee?'
How were points awarded?
Could you use your wife?


Did they have a 'windsheld-wiper' competition, because that's the way I like to get them started....

So, Harry Reid is still flogging the romney tax horse?

Ok, instead of that whole "Harry Reid is a child molester" thing- lets get some real news going.

How about the Federal employees (including some on Harries staff) who owe a collective $3.4 Billion in back taxes- as of two years ago, and I don't think it's better now.

OR-

Maybe mention that if Romney's tax problem prevents him from being President- that being the heat of the Treasury would work, since it's some kind of requirement in the Obama administration....

One of the few poems I know by heart

The charge of the Light Brigade

1.

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!
"Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

2.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

3.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

4.

Flash'd all their sabres bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the sabre stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

5.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

6.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred.



Happy 206th Lord Alfred Tennyson

Because socialists don't understand people

I just watched "Lost castles of England" on Netflix.
It's about wooden castles and what the were in their height.
 
Leonard Nemoy was reading what the A&E writers wrote about how it's surprising that all the peons who lives as serfs abandoned those wooden castles, but still supported the Church of the same fiefdom.

It's like they don't understand how people resent being forced to live the way someone else forces them to.

On the topic of all things to everyone

Did you know that before he changed his name the second time, Barack was called Jim Dandy?
And that he used his super powers for good?






...And, NO- I didn't pick this clip just because Ruby Starr was in it.
Not completely anyhow.

This reminds me of an old saying

All hat and no cattle-
Stolen from Blues blog.

The douchbag Adam Smith made another video

In this one, he tries in his Morally superior way -to apologize to Rachel (the victim of his self righteous wrath).

He still has that entire Liberal lack of awareness in his tunnel vision about Conservatives.
You watch and decide:


Does this kind of remind you of when Hillary! was First lady and discovered that her janitor (or maintenance guy- whatever) was a human being like herself, and had plans for the future?

Do you think he supports the PLO freedom armada?
What about CAIR?

Do you think he's still a dooshnozzle?

The Jihadi Hasan had another day in court yesterday

He still had the illegal beard that he was ordered to shave off last time -and was fined another $1000 for disobeying a direct order.

I knew he was going to use that moslim Bravo Sierra about having a beard when I first heard about it. Now the Judge is going to forcibly have Jihadi Hasan shaved if he doesn't do it himself.

Who wants to bet that when that happens- everything will break loose that the PC crowd has been trying to keep under wraps since Hasan was a Lt. (or Capt,,,,) and the Army will be charged with violating the tenants of Islam for making the terrorist Hasan ...shave.


Like he had no problem doing until that religious fever hit him.

Record sales at Chick-Fill-A yesterday

Sure is a lot of uproar about one bible-thumper stating what you'd expect a believing baptist to say.LOOK!

So, what is the willing accomplices in the lamestream media hiding from us about what's going on at the Chicago-on-the-Potomac?

Oh- LOOK!!
Chick-Fill-A!
QUICK, stare at it while we do something we don't want you to know about.

Now for news that's not

It's not news because it comes from CNN and it's about guns.

Actually It's basically a friendly puff piece for the gun control lobby with numbers pulled from their asses some lefty gun surveys via the usual suspects.

The data, collected by the Injury Prevention Journal, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the General Social Survey and population figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, found that the number of U.S. households with guns has declined, but current gun owners are gathering more guns.
The United States tends to have better data on gun numbers than other countries, for instance Somalia or the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which may account for the high percentage, according to Alan Lizotte, dean and professor at the School of Criminal Justice at The University at Albany.
.~snip~
Politicians from both parties have tip-toed around gun control after the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater massacre to avoid political implications in the upcoming election. However, studies suggest they are bowing to a smaller number of American gun owners.
Those gun owners tend to live in swing states, explained Lizotte.
"You can see where [the gun debate plays out] in the presidential election," said Lizotte. "Where rural states are swing states and urban states are not."

Hey! Wasn't that theater a gun free zone?
Texas is a swing state?  Oh yeah King Putt told the libs it was when he came here begging for money.

Still, while it is possible to collect accurate data on the number of guns in the United States using manufacturing, import-export and life-cycle data for the guns, the federal government has little idea of who the guns owners are, gun policy experts said.
BULLSHIT!!!!!one!!!!
I'm fixing to pick up a new Henry this week-end and the .GOV will know EVERYTHING about the rifle and me. Then that record will go somewhere that it's not supposed to go, so the .GOV can confiscate it when the time is right and say "Oops, my bad- we didn't destroy the records like the we were legally required to do.


Now in the same vein of journalistic purity of spirit, have some self portraits
Just remember what has been seen cannot be unseen.
