I missed this yesterday

Apparently March 30 is "Buy Israeli Day".

In case you don't know 'what' to buy to be sure to buy Israeli, here's a handy website.

OR- if you want to make sure you don't boycott Israeli things, watch this:

Your welcome.

How nauseating

I hope you didn't eat yet.

And now he's not even going to throw this seasons opener. Maybe they'll get someone from his administration with balls to pitch the opener. I bet Hil could fire it right over the strike zone.

Lets get our vato on

Since we're supposed to appreciate the culture from southern border- lets watch some.
They may even be as funny as "my computer"

Superfly 1

Superfly 2


Yukking it up with the vatos

Because he feels comfortable with people who can't bother to learn english...

Her name

Is Danielle Colby Cushman

If you don't watch 'American Pickers' on the History channel you probably don't know that.
If you're into Roller Derby or Burlesque- you may know her as Dannie Diesel.

Who had to ruin herself with those nasty-assed tats.

While we were otherwise distracted

By someone reading a teleprompter somewhere about a war that wasn't a war, but really was something else that really isn't a duck.

And he'll be following results closely with laser-like focus or maybe not.

Did you know they're having riots down in Honduras because a bunch of Communists want their exiled President back in? Yes, it's in the third week and being staged by teachers.
These teachers not only want their favorite Communist back, they also are protesting the thought of giving parents some say in what goes on in school.

If I could remind you BARRY

We started the Dept. of Energy after your disastrous Dhimmy Carters gas shortage back in the 70's.
That agency was supposed to ,,,forty years ago,,,was supposed to find a way to make America less dependent on foreign oil.
But instead YOUR DoE has been denying deepwater permits and ever since Carter has been closing off easily available oil fields. THAT is why we have to go out in the gulf to drill...except you won't let us.

But now you want to jump on the oil companies about how they're not drilling.
Now you're going to go out and read your teleprompter give a speech about how we have to change the way we think about oil.

Discussing the speech, the Democratic president said the country must increase its energy independence.

"What we were talking about was breaking the pattern of being shocked at high prices and then, as prices go down, being lulled into a trance, but instead let's actually have a plan," Obama told party activists in New York late on Tuesday.

Except, you dork, every time a Republican wanted to do something about future oil supplies- all we got from Democrats was 'but it'll take TEN YEARS!!! for it to make a difference'
for the last eight years at least.

Drill now and stop using my food to line ADM's pockets.

So..I can say Bill Maher sucks @sshole

from tranny queens and as long as my readers don't object- it's ok?
That's what I seem to get from the IOTW piece on that vile pos that gets millions of dollars to spew all over his followers.
Maher’s non-apology was flawed in its thinking and speaks entirely to my point about not putting your head in the sand. He justifies his remarks by saying he determines whether he’s gone over the line by reading his reviews and listening to the laughter. He says these things make up what a community standard is, weirdly citing pornography cases as precedent and justification for calling Palin a twat.

SO- I can trash Bill Maher as much as I want, and call him every name in the book (and make some up) as long as my five readers don't object, it's fine?

This is my astounded face:-O

Ok, I'll give it a shot.
Just remember- if I go too far, all of my readers will have to tell me so.
Just like Bill Maher and his hateful anti freedom belief.

The Drudge Report used to be cutting edge

lately I've noticed that you can skip a day and still see the same stories up.

BUT just in case you like seeing the same thing he has a twitter app. to make it easier.

Way back before Communism was cool

And NBC still thought America was good, we have the 13th episode of American exceptionalism.

For everyone freaking out about radiation in the ocean

Yes, Leftist antinuke Lamestream Media i am looking at you!

I want to remind you of something...

And we never caught fish with three eyes and legs.

Sweater puppies!!

But I bet you were expecting something besides these ones?

Ok, here you go:

A PSA for Hyundai owners

Especially Santa Fe drivers who have a power steering leak.
Thing-1 has had a leak for a while, and last week it got much worse, draining the reservoir in about 20 miles of highway driving.

If you hve a bad leak and see it dripping from center drivers side- it is NOT the $130 power steering pressure hose that they list at O'Reilly's Auto Parts that they have to order from the S. C. plant. The one that's leaking is the return hose which you'll probably need to get from a genuine Hyundai dealer.

Or you could use a hose clamp and some neoprene to put a bandage on it.
Like I told daughter- it could last 100 miles or until it's sitting in the bone yard.

Of course, now that I know it's only the return line, if it starts leaking again; I'll cut the rubber hose off at the steel and slip a hydraulic hose over the ends.

That's interesting

Not that I really gave much thought to which party the Rev. Phreddy Phelps was a life long member of.

But in retrospect it makes perfect sense.

So, it's a war now?

Are we sure it's not a WTF, or KMA or a ROTFLMAO?

WASHINGTON -- To a nation and a Congress seeking answers, President Barack Obama on Monday will offer his most expansive explanation of the U.S. role in the Libyan war, delivering a speech that is expected to cover the path ahead and his rationale about the appropriate use of force.

Obama's 7:30 p.m. EDT speech, to be given from the National Defense University in Washington, comes as leading Republican lawmakers and some from his own party have pressed him for clarity about the goals and exit strategy of the United States. Obama and top U.S. security officials spent about an hour talking to lawmakers on Friday, with the president answering direct questions from critics.

Well, I'm glad someone is mentioning an exit strategy before this war becomes a QUAGMIRE.

What kind of scam

Uses a blogger blog for their engine of scammieness?

If you're the Nigerian looking through my blog for hours just because you're intrigued by the craptasticness of it- I'm sorry.
You do know the reputation your country has, right?
Which is quickly being equaled by a .cz domain.

Our first American black President

Recycle- it's good for America!

John Cornyn just lost my vote

So I guess Since I'm not worthy of his staffs time to even ASK the people who supplied the background information to the NAVY - who they gave it to, so they might start looking.

Why should I throw my vote to someone who is so sure of his place and so anti- change that he actively works aginst Tea partiers?

Go piss up a rope John Cornyn.

Bye-bye Beaker

Even Liberal sycophants are warning Bashar Assad that he needs to go.

Drawing a parallel between the unrest in Syria and the protests that unseated Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s former president, Mr Gates said: “I’ve just come from Egypt, where the Egyptian army stood on the sidelines and allowed people to demonstrate and in fact empowered a revolution. The Syrians might take a lesson from that.”

Except there Bobby, maybe they don't WANT the Moslem Brotherhood taking over their country.

BTW, Sec. Gates- has anyone figured out who's in charge of Teh iWON's flusterf*ck in Libya yet?

Thursday, March 24, 2011

It's come to this

I wonder if anyone will have the balls to do this with Teh Won.

Redefining our bestiary

We don't have three dog, three cats and an iguana.

We have three dogs who are canines, two dogs that purr, one cat who doesn't appear in the kitchen when there's food being made- and an iguana.

Just thought I'd clear that up.

...And the dogs ans cats will eat pieces of mustard greens being prepared for the iguana- Petunia.

In the spirit of bipartisanship

I would like to put forward someone to be the face of the 'most open and ethical administration ever seen' (ver. 2.0).
He is one Lawrence Patterson, acting head of information technology for the Cuyahoga County (OH) fiscal recorder office.
This one dedicated .GOV employee takes his job so seriously that he cannot answer such an open ended question as to using a photocopier.

Here is some testimony from the court records.

Marburger: During your tenure in the computer department at the Recorder's office, has the Recorder's office had photocopying machines?

Cavanagh: Objection.

Marburger: Any photocopying machine?

Patterson: When you say "photocopying machine," what do you mean?

Marburger: Let me be -- let me make sure I understand your question. You don't have an understanding of what a photocopying machine is?

Patterson: No. I want to make sure that I answer your question correctly.

Cavanagh: Dave, I'll object to the tone of the question. You make it sound like it's unbelievable to you that he wouldn't know what the definition of a photocopy machine is.

Marburger: I didn't ask him to define it. I asked him if he had any.

Patterson: When you say "photocopying machine," what do you mean?

Marburger: Let me be clear. The term "photocopying machine" is so ambiguous that you can't picture in your mind what a photocopying machine is in an office setting?

Patterson: I just want to make sure I answer your question correctly.

Costello: Well, we'll find out. If you can say yes or no, I can do follow-ups, but it seems -- if you really don't know in an office setting what a photocopying machine is, I'd like the Ohio Supreme Court to hear you say so.

Patterson: I just want to make sure I answer your question correctly.

Cavanagh: There's different types of photocopiers, Dave.

Costello: You're speaking instead of -- you're not under oath. This guy is.

Cavanagh: I understand that, but I understand what his objection is. You want him to answer the question, but I don't think it's fair.

Costellor: It's not fair?

Cavanagh: It's not a fair question. A photocopy machine can be a machine that uses photostatic technology, that uses xerographic technology, that uses scanning technology.

Costello: I don't care what kind of technology it uses. Has your offices -- we don't have technocrats on the Ohio Supreme Court. We've got people like me, general guys --

Cavanagh: Objection.

Costello: -- or gals. I'm not really very interested in what the technology element of it is. I want to know --

Cavanagh: That's what's at issue in the case, Dave.

Costello: Not in my judgment. Do you have photocopying machines at the Recorder's office? If you don't know what that means in an office setting, please tell the court you don't know what it means in an office setting to have a photocopying machine.

Abbott: I would like to answer your question to the best of my ability.

Costello: I'm asking you to answer that.

Abbott: So if you could explain to me what you mean by --

Costello: I'm not going to do that because I want you -- I want to establish on the record that you really don't know what it is. I want to establish that.

Now, do you know what it is or do you not know what it is? Do you understand what that term means in common parlance or not?

Abbott: Common parlance?

Costello: Common language.

Abbott: I'm sorry. I didn't know what that meant. I understand that there are photocopying machines, and there are different types of them just like --

Costello: Are there any in the Recorder's office?

Abbott: -- there are different cars. Some of them run under gas power, some of them under electric power, and I'm asking if you could help me out by explaining what you mean by "photocopying machines" --

Costello: That's a great point.

Abbott: -- instead of trying to make me feel stupid.

Costello: If you feel stupid, it's not because I'm making you feel that way.

Cavanagh: Objection.

If you'd like to hear the whole thing, it's here.

Patterson makes $64,000 a year.

So, Mr. Nobel Prize winner

Just which unacceptable line was crossed in Libya?

I guess using nerve gas on your own people is ok?
Or turning heavy machine guns on someone who only want democracy is fine- as long as they don't have oil?

Maybe it was the air power that did the trick?

President Obama defended his Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday, saying that Americans “don’t see any contradiction” in him ordering an attack on Libya to make sure “people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”

But we DO notice the way you did it there Prezidente Kickazz.

...AND the almost aching silence from the Left- again- on what we know would bring howls of unhinged rage if anyone with an (R) behind their name did it.

Yes, we know, "it was a youthful indiscretion"

And being as this ex-Grand Dragon of the Klan will get a pass from his friends at the MSM.
Because when you are in your 40's- in the 1980's- we still don't have the maturity to make these kinds of decisions on a moral plane...or something. Besides he's a Democrat and the Liberal media will twist itself into knots to protect someone who sanctioned murdering a black kid.

Because, hey! That's how we roll!

And the mean spirited Rethuglican who brought it up will be accused of picking on an old frail elderly man.

Keeping that changieness going

A 24% increase from last week :-)

They have the same rights as everyone else


...Well, actually more because they're beyond criticism- aren't hey?

I see that Garth brooks still hasn't recovered

from that mental breakdown he had about ten years ago...

Since he's running his pie-hole about how- in spite of having an unbreakable majority for two years ...that the system won't let his black plastic Jeezus get anything accomplished.

Yeah, I think what President Obama is finding out is all that we want to do, the system kind of doesn't allow the most powerful guy in the world to kind of do his job and I'm sure nobody's more frustrated than him to complete those promises that he did and I think he's trying his heart out. I love him to death and I fully support him and I just wish him well because it's got to be hell in that office," said Brooks.

Like Jennifer said- just shut up and dance, monkey!

You don't say...

This command-and-control business is complicated, and we haven’t done something like this kind of on-the-fly before,” U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters in Moscow today. “It’s not surprising to me that it would take a few days to get it all sorted out.”

Especially when you have these people in charge of Prezident Kickazz's war-

The 0bama doctrine,,,,

...And they keep calling Bush a clueless fuktard?

At least BusHitlerMcChimpey had his chit in one sock before he brought it in front of Congress for A VOTE- that Dems were on board for, until their lunatic base freaked out about "BLOOD FOR OIL" and that whole unilateral Barbra Streisand crap.

Her name

Is Sandra Rinomato

Yes you would...

In a heartbeat.
...and in case you've never been on HGTV, that's her show on the sign.

You're welcome.

Godwins law

A term that originated on Usenet, Godwin's Law states that as an online argument grows longer and more heated, it becomes increasingly likely that somebody will bring up Adolf Hitler or the Nazis. When such an event occurs, the person guilty of invoking Godwin's Law has effectively forfieted the argument.

We need to get some on our side to make some "Godwin says -you lose-" signs and stand next to some of those union thugs at the next astroturf event.

Something I've noticed about cats

Since we are temporarily boarding three of them.

They are chit manufacturing machines. We have two litter boxes and there is a constant stream of felines entering or leaving them. Where is all the...fuel coming from? they don't eat a third of the volume they cr@p out.

The dogs eat more than them and chit less.

It looks like we have a good TV signal tonight

so you don't have to hold on to the rabbit ears with a hanger in your hand.

Sit down next to dad and we'll watch history before the Libs got to it...
This time, we're going back to the islands

I'm not a soccer fan

As a matter of fact the only time I ever took any interest in the game was when America won some kind of woman's title and Brandi Chastain pulled off her jersey.

Now you know that I'm not anywhere near versed in the intricacies of soccer, but I'm sure I can tell you which one has never been near a soccer game in his life:

I hear there are some REAL ghettos down there in the slums, maybe you should stay there and put your community organizational skills to work. Don't worry, we're getting used to nobody making decisions over in DEECEE.

I see Sarah Palin is on tour

She's in Israel now with leaders we can respect.
Before that, she was in India and gave an energy speach where she also told the truth about the '08 elections. Naturally some people had a problem with this.

I wonder if she had any problems with misfiring?

I've had this new laptop for a couple days

It's a Compaq- which is the top of the HP line...maybe. This is it anyway,

There are three four things I don't like about it-
It has an extra column of (pretty much) redundant or un-needed shortcut keys that throw off your keypoints for typing- and I'm sending mail, or opening calculators when trying to capitalize letters.

Whenever the HP ... let-me-hold-your-hand-because-you're-a-submoron... help program comes up (and takes over my screen) They throw their boy's symbol in front of me-and I can't get it off my screen until 'little-o' is done making my computer...."better."

I'm going to call the trouble desk tomorrow and ask if there is any way to block their "Onely" propaganda.

Then I'll mention that Best Buy has a Toshiba without the annoying extra side keys and probably not the Obama tongue bath.
How do you think that will go over?

Then there are the right/left click ,,,,buttons below the touchpad. On this it's a one piece bar that you have to "hit" -after you find it.
No, really- you have to bury your finger to make it click- instead of just thumping it with your thumb.

Lastly the screen...who decided that it would be a good idea to make a screen for a media that is pretty much vertically organized (scroll up to see more) and make it so farging wide?

I'm not watching a direct to DVD movie, I want information.
So now I have width that I don't want (or need) without the height that I want (but can't have)

I sure am glad we have our betters making these decisions for us.

When your only tool is a hammer

Everything is labeled 'Domestic Terrorism.'
...Well unless someone yells "Allah Akbar!" right before he kills Americans.

From bitter clinger who think the Constitution means something-
To people who balk at the ever intrusive TSA theater,
To deepwater drillers,

To someone minting his own coins for barter...

Charges remain pending against William Kevin Innes, an Asheville man who authorities said recruited merchants in Western North Carolina willing to accept the “barter” currency, according to court records. Innes was indicted along with von NotHaus in 2009.

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins said. “While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country.”

I guess Buckwheat's DoJ thought they could hit the white guy harder with a terrorism charge that fraud.


Here are those confusing coins that are so confusing to us idiotic bitter clingers.

Play stupid games

Win stupid prizes.

Here we have an anti-hunting loon- who from the language I sort of thought might be from the Great White North (because of the Left tilt the whole country got from those 60's and 70's draft dodgers), but it came from OZ.

Which kind of puts the quote:
"She had blood streaming down her face, so my first thought was to get her out of the water," Ms Maxted said.
into perspective, given the freshwater crocks,

Anyway, there was an incident where a bunch of PETArds tried interfering with opening day of duck season down under, and one of them ended up with a face full of steel shot.
Witnesses claim they saw the 14-year-old boy taunting the victim, St Kilda woman Julia Symons, minutes before she was peppered with shotgun pellets at Lake Buloke in the state's northwest.
Those witnesses wouldn't happen to be anti- hunting hippies0 would they?
But police described the shooting as an accident after taking the teenage hunter and his uncle to nearby Donald police station for questioning and seizing the firearm involved.
When the Sunday Herald Sun arrived on the scene less than two minutes later, Ms Symons was bleeding heavily from several wounds in her face and hands, and apparently in shock.

"I've been shot. I've been shot ... I've lost a tooth. Will I be all right?" she screamed.

Steel pellets had entered her temples, left cheek, chin, nose, hand and lip.

Well you can thank your other friends of the earth that they weren't the more humane (for the ducks) lead shot.

The shooting happened at 9.10am yesterday as Ms Symons and about 150 other members of the Coalition Against Duck Shooting tried to disrupt the 1500-plus hunters on the lake for the opening of duck season.

And this...which proved the Australia is truly part of the British empire still...
While Ms Maxted said she did not see the incident, she did see the 14-year-old and an older man at the scene.

"I turned to the shooters and demanded their names. I said, 'She has been shot. What are your names?' And they just walked off," Ms Maxted said.

EGADS, really? Those utter CADs!

Barry, does this dress...

make my @ss look absolutely humongous?

Now that the Libyan descision's been made

I guess Code Pink and the all the other tools will be gearing up for their anti-war protests to protect dictators...


Or is it OK now because the French are taking the lead?

The last of the breed

The Huey, not that Communist biatch- that is.

There, that's better!

I heard part of Prez Kickazz's speech today

Where he was -finally- sending help to the anti-Kaddafi forces.

No I didn't listen to him bloviating in his arrogant way... It was a clip from a talk show.
It was pretty much this sound bite:
I also want to be clear about what we will not be doing. The United States is not going to deploy ground troops into Libya. And we are not going to use force to go beyond a well-defined goal, specifically the protection of civilians in Libya.

Ok...Mr. Nuance- that's a pretty 'Nam-like *well-defined goal* there.
"The protection of civilians in Libya."
Where's the cut=off in "protecting civilians in Libya"? From planes? From tanks?
Malnutrition? When are they going to be eligible for food stamps and AFDC?

Then we'll need to throw in some light rail so they can form a mobile commuting society that's the world's envy as they use mass transit from their homes to their jobs pumping oil for the blood of Europe.

We're really putting our hopes on the line

My alternate title was going to be "But- did it happen last time?"

About this hopeful story in the Green and their little woodie about how the cost of gas will force commuters onto public transportation.

Recently, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) predicted that rising gasoline prices could lead to a savings of $14,376 for commuters in New York City who choose to switch from personal to public transportation. However, keeping that amount of coin in one's bank account may not be as simple as it first seems.

An additional study released by the APTA claims that soaring gas prices will convince Americans to turn to public transportation in record numbers, possibly overloading the our transit systems. The APTA predicts that if gas prices hit $4 a gallon (it's $3.546 today), public transportation networks will need to add 670 million trips per year to keep up with rising demand.

I don't *know* for sure that in NYC and the other east coast Leftie cities- that gas already hit $4/gal about five years ago. I do know it hit $4/gal in San Antonio and I had to quit a good job because I couldn't afford to make a 110MI round trip daily.

Anyway- I'm sure they have records that show the increase in ridership that matches the cost of gas- right.
...And that it's not some Liberal wet dream that leads to:
William Millar, president of the APTA, is calling on Congress for investments aimed at addressing rising demand for public transportation:

We must make significant, long-term investments in public transportation or we will leave our fellow Americans with limited travel options, or in many cases stranded without travel options. Public transit is the quickest way for people to beat high gas prices if it is available.

When did they sneak that in?

I'm looking at Best Buy for a replacement laptop and just to see if it's worth making the trip in to San Antonio I clicked the "calculate tax and shipping" button- where I got a price for BOTH tax and shipping.

The last time I ordered something on line- all I paid was shipping.
When did that Tax Cheat Timmy Geitner inflict that on everyone?

I guess I'll see what's on e-bay.

That didn't take long

Probably longer than I expected, but....
I'll get the popcorn and we can watch the AOL/Huffpo Big Media against the overworked and unpaid slave-like contributors who only want to be treated fairly.

You know- like those Wisconsin teachers who shut down schools to protect their excessive benefit packages.
The downtrodden being used by the RICH to make even MORE money than they 'need.'

I wonder where Michael the Hut Moore will weigh in?
Will he land on the side of his rich fellow union busting media purveyors?


Will he throw his considerable weight behind those oppressed by the powerful rich who got that way by using non-union workers for their unethical profits?

My laptop just died

It was a quiet death, and expected.

I'm now looking at options and found some factory refurbed ones.
One thing I'm noticing is that almost all of them now have a cam in the lid,,,screen bezel. Which reminds me of those pedophiles that are jacking software so they can perv kids.

I don't care what kind of pedi-view you install, they don't make cameras that see through black electric tape- yet.

Reason # 6453 to pack heat

To protect yourself against packs (prides?) of feral cats the size of dogs.
Oh wait, it's Australia- they don't need those icky guns because they might hurt someone.

I hope they don't have rabies in Oz.

~~Link fixed~~

What would you do in the Zombocolypse?

Take this test to find where you would fit.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

And in related news from this unimpeachable source, comes the news that our Chicago Jeezus is also related to Jefferson Davis.

In a reference to his American ancestry, Obama writes "while one of my great-great-grandfathers, Christopher Columbus Clark, had been a decorated Union soldier, his wife's mother was rumored to have been a second cousin of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy."

We got some free hockey tickets last night

So we went to see the San Antonio Rampage Beat Milwaukee.
I can't remember how long it's been since I watched one. We had a pretty good time, except for watching three assholes pounding on the glass whenever there was an Admiral in front of them. Everyone else was having a good time and chilling ...except fot those assholes.

I told Karen- they have to be Yankees, probably from Philly.

Mr. C, would be sooo ashamed of you right now, Richie

Ummmm........what's a bracket?

Her name

Is Carly Foulkes

In case you didn't recognize her without her red and white sun dress at T-mobile.

Thank you Mr. Obama

Those "extra large" ones weren't a whole lot bigger than the usual ones that range from 33 to 48 cents.

Since we've got people freaking about radiation

Well the radiation that's 5,000 miles away and makes good scare stories instead of the stuff supplied to the clowns of the TSA- yes ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and FOX, I am looking at you.

I know it's cool to be in Japan breathlessly babbling about damaged reactors, but it's not sexy to badmouth a bad plan using bad tools pushed by the guy YOU put into power.
I'd probably be safe betting my next paycheck on the fact that those lethal TSA X-ray machine reports don't even get past the pre-screening intern, much less on your desk.

Because the report is leaking out- in spite of the 'most ethical-and-open' the world has ever seen (Version 2.0) about how abysmally inept your people are with their math.

Still, the government said the results proved the safety of the devices.

“It would appear that the emissions are 10 times higher. We understand it as a calculation error,” TSA spokesman Sarah Horowitz said in a telephone interview.

The snafu involves tests conducted on the roughly 250 backscatter X-ray machines produced by Rapiscan of Los Angeles, which has a contract to deliver another 250 machines at a cost of about $180,000 each.

No wonder we've never seen any pictures of TSA bigwigs anywhere near those amped-up X-ray beams.

But at least they're going to decide to show up at a Congressional hearing today.

Maybe someone will ask them to defend their need to even be IN airports since they can't even find the things that started that whole security farce.
Especially when they admitted they aren't needed.

The TSA spokeswoman Davis insisted that the traveling public was not at risk.

"There have been a number of additional security layers that have been implemented on aircraft that would prevent someone from causing harm with boxcutters," she insisted.

"They include the possible presence of armed federal air marshals, hardened cockpit doors, flight crews trained in self-defense and a more vigilant traveling public who have demonstrated a willingness to intervene."

As you may have noticed

-or not since I don't have that large of a following, I haven't said much about Japan.
There are a lot of others talking about it and all kinds of opinions on it.
All the way from "f- them, I still remember Pearl Harbor" to "Zo-my-gawd! Het NUklear reactorz iz going to BLOW. UP!!! Then melt to the earths core and EXPLODE. THE. WHOLE. PLANET!!!!ELEVEN!!"

Sure it's bad. They were hit by an earthquake that broke a tectonic plate and tilted the earths axis a couple degrees. How that will affect global warming, we haven't been told yet. But they're an advanced people, probably even ahead of us. They build chit to stand earthquakes and most of it did withstand it. What did them in was the water that hit them right after and caused the problems at those reactors. I never did think we were looking at another Chernobyl for several reasons, and one was the kind of reactor it is which the Daily Gator lays out pretty well.
First- it was in JAPAN. The same country that was on the receiving end of two atomic bombs. Any nukes would have to be the safest possible design out there.
Second- It was build by capitalists who gave a chit about what could happen if something went wrong. If for no other reason than their financial well being.
Third- It was a completely different design which used less dangerous fuel than Russian ones do.

As far as the panic stricken reporting going on, remember that theses people are pushing an anti-nuke agenda. Elevated radiation doesn't automatically mean dangerous. I can turn off my A/C and the temperature inside my house becomes 'elevated' from the arbitrary temperature I decided to put it at. These 'journalists' are the same people who couldn't tell you off the top of their heads what temperature water boils at.

Also, something a lot of people are starting to remember now, and talk about- is just how many nuclear tests have been conducted without the disastrous results hoped for by the MSM.

It's a little over 14 minutes and has a kind of slow start and finish:

There, feel better?

The Japanese will come through this fine and be back making tentacle pr()n faster than you think.

That's odd

Usually when I get a bump in my sitemeter it comes from a link from a bigger blog.
Today it seems like just more random hits than usual.

How's this for self defence?

Sorry Jay, check your local laws because it actually...shoots.

...And if anyonr has $800 to throw my way, my birthday is coming up next month.

No...E-bay has no double standards

They're as Liberal as you'd expect from a Cali company.

Look for anything gunnish...(.357 pistol) and you get 91 auctions

Try a pr()n star out and you can order anything you want to pay for.

But I'm cheap and prefer to just 'tube' my porn.

This is what fighting evil really looks like

It's not sitting around chanting tired slogans in a drum circle.
It's cold and crappy and miserable and you think you'll never warm up.

Then it gets worse.

Ask a question- get answers

It just dawned on someone in the place where Great Briton used to be that we're not hearing about looting in Japan.

This is quite unusual among human cultures, and it’s unlikely it would be the case in Britain. During the 2007 floods in the West Country abandoned cars were broken into and free packs of bottled water were stolen. There was looting in Chile after the earthquake last year – so much so that troops were sent in; in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina saw looting on a shocking scale.

He's surprised that a conservative culture that isn't inundated by Balkanized illegal aliens awash with a Liberal entitlement mentality would actually respect each other.

He's getting a lot of answers.

I bet he'd be surprised to know that here in gun and bible clinging flyover country would act pretty much the same- because were not immersed in the Liberal gimme attitude we've been seeing in Wisconsin. Including the ones we'd hope would be the ones protecting us.

It's "I"gor

With the emphasis on the "eye".

Look who just got a new job!

Setting new precidents daily

Look! Team 0 just found a new way to crash the Dollar.

Yes, the same guy who couldn't figure out he owed the IRS money when the international bank he worked for GAVE him money to pay them just told the world that he's quite happy with China taking over as the next big thing.

Is George Soros happy yet?


Have some pi!

Making cats do un-natural things

I learned today that you can use a flashlight beam to get a cat to run over a dog.

See, I was playing with The Instigator and Goliath (think almost Great Dane sized Dalmation-looking-thing) was lying down at his food bowl.

So, I was letting the cat chase the light and not look where he was going and looking at Goliath chowing down without a care in the world- and I wondered what would happen if I ran the light right across him?

Both of them got a WTF? moment at the same time.

I'm busy being the president.

Speaking truth to...............ummm unions

It really puts things into perspective when you roll tape on Wisconsin union protesters and the cut of "Life of Brian" fits right in.

I'm glad Ann Althouse has at least one fellow traveler up in that loony bin on Lake Mendota.

H/t to Powerline who wouldn't even notice the few hits from here.

Now that I've dug up mindless timewasters

...Because nothing ever goes away on het intrawezz
I think we'll start a new tradition called juvenile interaction.

Lets start off with how to turn yourself into a Wisconsin union thug!

Juvenile, and proud of it!

Thanks to Alan for inflicting this on you.

Like Fat Albert says

"He's like school in the summer class."

Was this before or after his 45 second 'I feel Japans pain' soundbite?
That he held a reception for another group of Chicago thugs at the White House.

And he scored a jersey, a ring and a mini Stanly cup to go alongside the nobel prize that he got for doing nothing.

That manly ring dwarfs his whole hand- doesn't it?

Speaking of two-faced political hacks...

Just remember- Republicans aren't your friends.
They're just doing what they have to do to con you into voting for them again.

Kaufmann: Sounds like you’re getting out of the Alaska bill.

Helland: Oh yeah, I’m getting out of it after I end up on a blog.

Lukan: The Alaska bill – what’s the Alaska bill?

Helland. I’m the dirty hatchet man for the caucus. Something nobody wants to do. Some dirty, nasty job. I’m the one who gets dropped in you know why, ’cause I’m expendable.

Kaufmann: The crazy, give-a-handgun-to-a-schizophrenic bill.

H/T-Between Two Rivers

The vile hag from Alaska

No you Liberal, quit wetting your diaper-not "her."

Lisa Murkowski (RINO) wants to keep killing black babies on our dime.

You know, not to sound too Liberal here, but you'd think if she was making all that big money (and perks that she soooo wanted to keep)- that she'd have someone to do something about those gray roots, don't you?

The Texas Lege is looking at illegal immigration

and trying to see what they can do about it.
Since Republicans took over both houses last year (thanks Nancy) we've got a good chance to try fixing things on the state level- since DeeCee isn't bothered by it.

One State Rep. Paul Workman (R-Spicewood) has introduced bill creating a 'guest worker' program for illegal immigrants.

See,this brain- instead of finding illegals and sending them back, and stopping all the .GOV handouts- wants to give them some kind of state workers visa.

"This is a way for these people to come out of the shadows, for the state of Texas to know who is here, we will have an opportunity to run background checks on them," Workman said.

He says the bill also removes the incentive for the growing problem of trafficking in illegal immigrants in Texas.

His bill would require any illegal immigrant who wants to work in Texas to pay $4,000 and obtain an 'resident immigrant registration card' which would be good for eight years.

He says the state would perform a background check on the individual, and his or her employment would be monitored by the state. The individual would pay state taxes and would participate in the normal commercial activity of the state.

Dude, did you used to be a Democrat?
You want these people who are pretty much thriving by NOT paying income tax, or insurance, or getting a drivers license (even though they drive anyway) OR paying the $1000 to get their green card- to PAY $4000 to lose all that in exchange for being in your database?

Really? They must have really good drugs in Spicewood.

Oh, AND they won't be immune from deportation either.

Yeah, I can see Texas being overwhelmed with those requests right now.

I try not to listen to the worlds smartest negro

  1. I hear too much of that arrogant voice on any MSM that can push a soundbite- FOXheadlne news-radio I'm looking at you. Those Liberal sycophants have had his soundbites on more in two years than they had Bill Clinton in two TERMS.
  2. The only thing I want to hear him say is "I'm in way over my head, so I quit."
But I read some of what he says.
In his 'folksy' talk he did about bullying yesterday:

He said that even he felt out of place growing up.

"I have to say, with big ears and the name that I have, I wasn't immune," said Obama, who moved around a lot as a boy, being born in Hawaii and growing up there and in Indonesia. "I didn't emerge unscathed," he said.

Didn't he spend most of his youth in muslim countries? Muslim countries that we're supposed to look to for guidence on how to better ourselves? Barack wasn't muslim enough?

Well now we understand your passive/aggressive when confronted by someone wth balls compared to citizens that you hold power over.
Thanks for the insight, Barry.

You can thank Jennifer for this

She's over here.

It has to be turf wars

The Chicago machine against Tammany Hall.

There are some New York Democrats who are going to turn themselves in to the Feds. Eric Holders DoJ no less for corruption.
Being as one is black and Eric Holders ethnocentric Department of (social) Justice is still going after them- and they are both Democrats, What else are we to believe?

Sure they've been looking at them since 2007, but the fact that Eric Holder didn't order the investigation dropped like a hot rock when it involved "one of his" people should tell you something.

But then again, I'm not a Liberal and don't do nuance very well...

Two things offspring related

SiL had just got transferred from Okinawa to Japan.
Thing-2 felt that earthquake in Camp Pendleton.

I really feel bag for the Pacific wide devastation those people suffered, and it won't get better anytime soon since no-one will be stepping up to take charge of relief efforts.

And some of those atolls are only feet above the ocean.

Does anyone in the MSM pump their own gas?

I'm just wondering because we haven't heard anything like we did last time gas was rising this fast. Waitamimmuit- It's rising FASTER this time than it was when the lamestream media couldn't cry loud enough about the BusHHalburtonMcHitler administrations manipulating prices.

I mean, I don't know why it might be news that gas prices have gone up 67% in the two years that our Chicago Jeezus took charge.
Thanks to all those unicorn farts and alternative energy- we don't need that oil that we are barred from drilling for. Anywhere on easily available land or under a mile of water. We'll et the Russians and Chinese drill because we know they care about the gulf more than the people who live there, and with better (Chernobyl, anyone?) technology than we have.

BUT--we still have private entrepreneurs who can come up with real alternate energy.
Bluesun showed us a car that runs on water. (No, it's not perpetual motion, it uses water [light bulb icon] for fuel.

Then we find that someone's been checking out steam-punk technology over in the P.I. and came up with a power source that collects and processes energy emitted throughout the aether. AND it's been examined and verified by the P.I. DoE. So we know it's not a scam (he said with a straight face).
This is where all of Obamas unicorns have been lately instead of working over here- they've been putting their magic together to make something ---MORE.
Yes, not only is it a perpetual motion machine, it even puts out MORE power than it takes in. I wonder when we'll be throwing our tax money away investing in that technology?

The old west

A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a whiskey.

When the bartender delivers the drink, the cowboy asks,
"Where is everybody?"

The bartender replies, "They've gone to the hanging."

"Hanging? Who are they hanging?"

"Brown Paper Pete", the bartender replied.

"What kind of a name is that?" the cowboy asked.

"Well", says the bartender, "he wears a brown paper hat, brown paper shirt, brown paper trousers and brown paper shoes."

"How bizarre", said the cowboy. "What are they hanging him for?"

The bartender answered,


This could mean one of two things

That either my letter to John Cornyn is finally getting someone off their ass about my backgound check- that I've been waiting FOUR MONTHS for...

-OR more likely that someone's feeling a little butt hurt about that letter of theirs getting out into the public.

Any ideas?

"O" yes

Because I'm nice that way-

Sabine Ehrenfeld.

She looks familiar, but...?

You remember her from here-

And speaking of Sabines...

Here is Sabine...Oh wait- she's fodder for another 'Rule 5' post...

How about Sabine Pass? She's a feisty one that Sabine.

Like Joe sez...

"C'mon Opie, lets go fishin"

Because on the internet nothing dies.

Oh, look! it"s "Torpedo Joe"!
Send this one to all your PETArded friends.

Of course it's not a decision on Libya

It's not THAT kind of a meeting.
Besides we still don't know which one will end up on top, so naturally we won't back anyone.

But rest assured, we have the sharpest minds in the 0bama administration working on all the angles.

Be assured, this humanitarian crisis is on the top of our thought process...

...and we will follow this with laser like focus.

Remember, we have the best minds in this administration working diligently on this.

Oh, look!

You can send Newt a message.
I did.
I asked WHY he thought he had a chance.
Then I told him if I saw the same losers on my primary and no John Bolton or Herman Cain- that I'd vote for a third party.

Go here and let him know your opinion.

If you want, go see Jeffro, who I got this from.

Do I have you on my blogroll?

If anyone is coming here from their blog and I don't have you on my list, then drop a comment off and I'll be glad to put you on.

Whoever is checking me out from their LA RR ISP who's sitemeter is s40gendis- let me know, because sitemeter won't tell me who you are.

Ohh, it's Wesley via e-mail.


I used to have a Bronco

Actually, I liked them so much I owned three of them.

One of them came with a saying on the back window (until I broke it because the motor controller f8cked up again) it said:

CHEVY- like a rock
BRONCOS climb rocks!

I just wanted to give you some background for this video I stole from PISSED, because a Bronco wouldn't end up like this...

Language is definitely NSFW

Why they had it hooked up that way, I can't figure out- but it DOES look new enough to be made by .GOV workers...

Just wondering here

Since the Lamestream Media is covering it less as it dawns on them that not everyone 'hearts' unions.

Are those kids in Wisconsin still locked out of school? Not that it's really hurting the SIXTY SIX PERCENT (that's 2/3 for you educators out there -more than, like half) of kids who can't read anyway.

Or are these union thugs bussed in from somewhere else to show their jobs aren't necessary?

26 minutes of American pride

From back when NBC didn't like all things anti-American.

The battle of the South Atlantic

Gullible friends

The gift that keeps on giving.

Her name

Is Jill Wagner.

In case you didn't recognize her, she's the Mercury spokesbabe.

You're welcome.

It looks like it might be a bad week

To be buying a gun.
Or get caught with lots of bootleg smokes.
Or the wrong kind of fireworks in the wrong place.

Or to have an autoloader that might slamfire more than once for every trigger pull.

Because the BATF is out looking for "positive" stories to offset "Project Gunwalker".

Public Information Officers:

Please make every effort for the next two weeks to maximize coverage of ATF operations/enforcement actions/arrests at the local and regional level. Given the negative coverage by CBS Evening News last week and upcoming events this week, the bureau should look for every opportunity to push coverage of good stories.

ATF needs to proactively push positive stories this week, in an effort to preempt some negative reporting, or at minimum, lessen the coverage of such stories in the news cycle by replacing them with good stories about ATF. The more time we spend highlighting the great work of the agents through press releases and various media outreaches in the coming days and weeks, the better off we will be.

Y'all enjoy your First Amendment right these next two weeks, ya hear?

Yard wolves

This is why it takes five minutes to go out the front door.

By the time I reach the front door, they're just realizing I'm going out, so they have to bound up and run around obstructions to get to the door. Then they have to vie for position and rush as soon as I put my hand on the knob- and get in the way of an inward swinging door.
Then there's not enough room to exit en-mass so they have to jostle their way out.

Notice the color coordinated anti-claw protection on the arms of the couch. That's another story.
His nickname is 'the Instigator'.

Where are these anachronistic "rural areas"

That all these Liberals bring up whenever they want to show they 'care' about flyover country?

And just how magical are those .GOV funded FM radio waves that only get through to those Edison radios in "rural areas"- when regular FM and even AM radio waves can't penetrate?

The NPR chief executive not only argued that her outlet fills a void left by a wave of cuts to private media companies, she claimed that public-radio listeners in rural areas would have no other access to news if their stations stopped broadcasts.

As much as those elitist Liberals know about "rural areas" they must think we all get our electricity from Mr. Roosevelt's TVA to light up our two bare 60Watt bulbs that we have to unscrew to charge the batteries for so we can huddle around our RCA-Victor radio at night. Because it's too far into town to hook up the mules for less than a weeks worth of vittles.

You know, MS. Schiller- I live 30 miles from San Antonio. I used to drive my S-10 (that's a truck) to Selma, TX every day- 54MI each way and I got FREE private radio without your anti-American slant all the way out there. But I guess you might have a point, if you stretch it a bit. See when you people decided to take away analog TV signals, you DID do way with free news ON the TELEVISION- because even with a converter digital signals aren't as powerful and don't reach as far.

But that's OK, I can get my TV and broadband internet from SATELLITES (who's signals penetrate the darkest of rurality) or wired CATV.

So, sorry- you'll need to look somewhere else for your digital divide theory.

"I know how to fix that!"

If there are too many tarmac delays- lets fine the crap out of the airlines because they're delayed by .GOV.
What could go wrong? Instead of trying to upgrade the way the FAA runs the skies, we fine the airlines- poof they'll figure out something!

Yeah- they decided to cancel some 7,000 flights in nine months instead of paying $2.75 million for each delayed planeload of travelers.
Who then have to go on standby, or buy more expensive one-way tickets, or rent a car.

But, then which of that clown posse up in DeeCee ever heard of the Law of Unintended Consequence?

Pete Seeger is kind of getting up there, isn't he?

Yeah, he's in his nineties, was one of those Roosevelt communists and is backing that tired and continuing boycott of all things Israel.

Sure Pete, be my guest but don't bow to pressure and keep your principles where they matter most, AND just to remind you of what to be sure you don't want to use- for purity of your ideas and all...
Here's a list.

In the spirit of civilized debate

That Liberals are always lecturing us about.

...And speaking of unions...
A unionized teacher, a Tea Party member, and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The teacher reaches across and takes 11 cookies, looks at the Tea Party member and says, "Watch out for that CEO, he wants a piece of your cookie."

You can tell indians are behind it

How many times do I have to install Flashplayer updates until it sticks?
Now that intrusive gray rectangle is telling me I have to shut down what I just opened to get rid of it.

You know, in your face until you do what it wants.

IBEW Local 1260: "Let people die"

"We're on strike and don't care how many disabled people die because of the storms that knocked out power."

Way to go unions, keep showing everyone just who your main priority is.

When I was a lineman in the Navy, we had lists of addresses that were high priority for restoring power. The vast majority was on base housing where there were people who's life sustaining medical equipment was dependent on electricity. Sure it had battery back-up but batteries run down, so we wanted to get those up first.

I don't know how civilian power companies work, but it's obvious that no matter what their policies are, those greedy union thugs don't care who dies as long as they get their way.

Yo! AnthONEY! AnthONEY Weiner

An interview is supposed to let people know and understand what the interviewee is trying to get across. In this interview you had with the scary smart and hot Megyn Kelly- you came across like a boorish ASS HOLE.

But then, you ARE a New Yoak Liberal- so what else do we expect?

And speaking of vile and wicked kneejerk reactions, try to imagine how someone on the left would react if someone made fun of them like Jimmy Kimmel did in this take.

Don't do it Newt

If I had an e-mail to your new presidential exploratory committee- I'd tell them you have waaaayyy too much baggage.
Not to mention that ammunition you gave them when you were going kisseyface with SanFran Nan about that Cap-and-Tax scam last year.

AND if I see any of the recycled LOOSERS
Mitt Romneycare
Mike Suckaby
the lunatic Ron Paul
Rudy Giuliani

from last time on my primary ballot, don't count on my vote next year.
If I can't vote for anyone but a career politician, GFYS.

Can these Democrats do nothing right?

Two days ago the same company that screwed up the first launch sent the second $424 million satellite into the Pacific Ocean.

It was a satellite designed to measure global warming.
Now normally you'd think it would have polluted a large section of the Pacific Ocean with a 'deadly cocktail of toxic chemicals'- TWICE in the same area.

But this time you'd probably be wrong and it was most likely filled with carbon credits. Because in the likelihood of another crash, we don't want to poison mother Gaea- and if we really had measuring tools in there, we'd have to work harder to skew the data.

Cat toys

I don't know why anyone would go spend a lot of money on cat toys.
I just opened a bottle of wine and dropped that aluminum cap/cover on the floor.

The instigator is batting it from the kitchen into the TV room and back,
That tie-wrap that goes around Wal-mrt mustard greens is another entertaining cat toy.

You can tell a meme is getting old

when I get awarded something all the good blogs got months ago.
So after Bluesun awarded me the Stylish Blogger award

we'll let it pass on in peace.

Now, in accordance with the meme, here are the seven things things you probably don't know about me.

When I was in the Navy, out of the seven times I qualified with an M-16- I shot expert six of them on the Marine 500YD A-course and missed once by one point.
UPDATE reminded by Joe Huffman
If I remember right my dope was 7-up and 6-to the right.

I like cheap beer better than the expensive stuff.

I'm lazy on my time. When I'm at work, I'll work like a machine, on my own time- I just can't get motivated.

I loved working on and driving a Chevy C-10. I could probably still almost rebuild a straight six 250 with my eyes closed.

I enjoyed having my ex-boss pay my unemployment, it made up for all the free hours I had to put in.

I am still waiting on the Navy to finish (or start) my background check so I can fuel jet trainers in south Texas. I sent a letter to John Cornyn's San Antonio office about it this week.

We currently have three dogs, three cats and an iguana living in the house.

99 rote Luft Balons

times a thousand.


Who knew realtors had such pull?

Is there some kind of huge real estate lobby all of a sudden, or did one of the DNC have a wife who just got her real estate brokers license?

That's the only reason I can think of for the White House to decide now would be a good time to dump 1,200,000 properties on an already hurting property market.

The post describes a plan to appoint "independent board of experts to expedite the disposal of unneeded properties."

I didn't actually read the thing because I don't want my computer filled with burrowing tracking software, but I would be surprised if Bush wasn't mentioned in there somehow...

Is the TSA finally over reaching enough

for someone to finally shut them down?
(Note- I had a hard time keeping this page open on the story for some reason it refreshed to ads only)
I've got some big problems with this.
First of all is that pesky Fourth Amendment thing about unlawful searches.

So you have some unfireable union thug from the TSA saying to his buddy who's on a sexual predator list- 'HeyChester, that 12 year-old looks cute, I wonder what she's hiding under her dress?'

Then Chester cues in the X-Ray scanner that can SEE THROUGH TRUCKS on you little girls goodies. Without any records of what happened, except for what they just downloaded for latter enjoyment.

But, hey- it's all good because:
Update: A TSA official responds in a statement that the “TSA has not tested the advanced imaging technology that is currently used at airports in mass transit environments and does not have plans to do so.”

A privacy assessment included in the documents for one aspect of the plans that focused on train security suggests that images wouldn’t be tied to any personally identifiable information such as a subject’s name. Any images shared outside the project or used for training purposes would have faces blurred, and employees using the system would be trained to avoid privacy violations, the document says.

Which brings up another point.
If they don't keep records, how is anyone going to be able to sue for either violations of their Constitutional Rights, or the radiation sickness they'll get from those X -Ray machines that are POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SEE THROUGH TRUCKS?
Or someone walking right in front of this?
In another program, the researchers were asked to develop a system of long range x-ray scanning to determine what metal objects an individual might have on his or her body at distances up to thirty feet.

Oh, speaking of radiation sickness and increased cancer risks from slipshod safety practices- has Congress ever got that TSA safety report that they've been waiting on for three months?

AND all you anti-tobacco fanatics who are worried about the effects of third-hand smoke...where are you on this?

the USS John P. Murtha

MOTTO: In cold blood

Width: 100'
Draft: shallow

CLASS: GS [garbage scow]

Because the 0bama appointee the SECNAV- Ray Mabus insists on naming something after that vile EX-Marine Democrat.

More Somalis interacting with civilization

Because everywhere they go, they can't help but spread love and acceptance from their chosen cult. Whether it's in Minnesota or their own coast, they just can't do enough to make people like them.

This time they took mom, dad, two crewmen and three teens hostage on their boat and anchored off their pirate stronghold.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Danish family kidnapped by pirates has reached the shore of Somalia, officials and a pirate said Wednesday, likely meaning a long hostage ordeal for the couple and their three teenage children who were abducted while yachting around the world.

A Somali pirate had warned that if any attempt was made to rescue them, they would meet the same fate as the four American yachters slain by their pirate captors last week. Any chance of a quick rescue seemed to disappear Wednesday

Oh, this makes it a little more interesting...
However, a Somali pirate who gave his name as Muse Abdi said the family was transferred to another, larger pirated ship.

"They are safe. They were just transferred from the boat to the big ship," said Abdi, who has provided reliable information in the past. "They have been added to other nationals in another ship to avoid any possible attack."

Here's an idea-
The Dutch have a navy of some kind, not any capitol ships (because hey- why build them, we've got the US to protect us for free)- but something with guns.
They're probably too civilized to do it but I'm sure the Russians have the balls to do it.

Just park a cruiser, or even a destroyer off the pirate village and start about 1000 yards away and slowly start walking shells from the shore inland about half a mile.
That would probably take 2-3 hours just to get their attention.
Next, do the same thing 100 yards closer.

Repeat as needed.

OH, and did I mention- no warnings and no negotiations until they're jumping up and down on the beach.

You know, nobody will be in a hurry, and battle stations could probably be relaxed a little- So how does this sound?
Let any rating who can pony up say- $20 to the MWR fund push the button and get bragging rites on firing a big gun? Why let the Gunners Mates have all the fun?
