Just out of curiosity.
Am I the only one who sees a resembelance between these two?

Heard at work yesterday

A new definition of standard and automatic.
As in "Is your new pistol a standard or an automatic?"

How does everyone like their new magic Unicorn?
What color was yours?
What was it's name? Mine was Benito.
He's now in the freezer waiting until I can't afford meat any more.

Yes I got off early.
Haven't had a 40 hour week since Christmas.
I really need to get my conduit bender on the market.
Problem is, they took out about $700 less withholding than they should have, and I need to come up with at least that. Which leaves little for materials that should make a 30% profit.


Fugging Gawd!
If it's this bad after one day of the New Regime...

What is America going to look like in four years?
Or two when the next election is scheduled for the Congress.
Will clueless automatons still think Republicans are in charge?

To paraphrase Rob-
I was proud of my country when being proud of my country wasn't cool.

From the Office of the President Elect

Dear News Media,
We are sorry that in the onrush of events that we were unable to properly prepare a timely press kit for you.

We understand the time constraints you have, and have rushed to put this kit together.

As we will soon morph into another arm of the inner security team, we wish to leave you with a token of our appreciation of all you've done for us, and hopefully will continue to do.

So without further ado, feel free to come by and pick up your official Obama press kit.

Thank you again.

A little back ground

Remember all the times President Obama and his appologists mentioned how the uneducated were forced to go into the military. How they couldn't hack the outside world, and were so limited that they needed the guarenteed jobs in the military?

You know typical Liberal condescention.
Millions took an oath similar to President Obama.
It goes something like this:
I (state your name) do solemnly swear to do my best to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
And Millions were able to do this without having the officer repeat himself repeatedly.

Are you trying to tell me that the best we could put up as President is this guy?

How many times did Bush f*ch up his oath?

HEY! What can a parrot do better than a sitting President?
Repeat four one line responses without help.

Can't you just feel the competence oozing out of every pore?

Today is it

The day when Mr. Wonderful is officially coronated.

I fully expect the world to come to a complete stop and be unrecognizably paradisaical when I wake up tomorrow, and have my magic unicorn on it's way via UPS Thursday.

I knew it!

I knew I should have tethered that mouse trap when I put it inside the skirting.
Now I have a mouse (or whatever) dragging around a peanutbuttery mouse trap.
It'll probably end up dying in the wall right next to my bed, too.

Some job skills are universal

As an electrician everyone I work with knows basic things, these are encompassed in a 'law' called the National Electric code.
Some of these even a helper should know...
You can only put 360 degrees worth of bends in an uninterrupted run of conduit- that's 4- 90's, 2-90's and 4-45's, 3-90's and 2-45's...etc...
Any wire that is not white, green, tan, bare are considered either grounds or neutral. All others carry varying amounts of voltage.

That is an American standard that all electricians know.
If I had a helper that didn't know those basics, he wouldn't be working with me very long.

Now the Omnipotent One is asking his buddies in Congress to give Tim Geithner a pass as His new Treasury Secretary.
This college grad who's made his living in high finance all his life didn't know he had to pay taxes as an independent contractor?
Isn't that as basic as ballencing the books?

...And Congress is giving him a pass on it!
'It was an honest mistake, just ask Charley Rangell (D-the hood).'

BULLSHIT, it was tax fraud. It you or I tried that, the IRS would be on us like a freight train and just as caring.

A comment from the afterlife

Tojo wants us to forward a comment to the Hammas terrorists.
Basically he's calling them a bunch of pansies and telling them to man up and face their enemies (like their women and childeren are).

I see your behavior and it just leaves me aghast.

I can understand the surprise terror raids and rocket attacks against an enemy. I've done that sort of thing myself, ask the Americans about Pearl Harbor. However what I do not understand is why you all start acting like a pack of whiny little bitches the moment the Israelis start fighting back.

Where are your balls?

Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, we woke up the sleeping American giant, and it handed us our asses on a plate.

Did we go whining to League of Nations, saying that they were being "disproportionate?"


Because the Japanese are true warriors in the tradition of Bushido. When we pick a fight, and get slapped back, we don't cry and get our Iranian funded proxies to scream and rant in the United Nations. We fight, take our lumps, and win or lose, accept the end, and take responsibility for our actions.

I just noticed this

I don't know how long it's been in the sidebar, but then again I try to ignore most website advertising.

I recognize the sauerkraut on the dog, but what IS that other white stuff?
I know it's not onions.

I know it's not cheese....

It looks like the entrails of a small animal.

Pick a spot and match your speed

That's the main idea when entering a limited access highway.
It works, too.
What doesn't work is you meandering up the on ramp at 40 MPH and expecting traffic to magically get out of your way.
OR, you're so intimidated by an under powered F-750 hauling a backhoe that you back off the gas a your merging- forcing him to use his brakes and then take the next three miles to get back his speed.
Stopping abruptly isn't a good idea either.

And in other driving I've told the girls if you're late you can't makeup time by driving stooopidly.
You'll either get a ticket or be in a wreck, and either of them will make you even later.
The wreck will take even more time and cost a hell of a lot more, too- if your lucky enough to be unhurt.
Not to mention all the people on the road behind you waiting for the wreck to be cleared will *hate* you with a passion and hope you die a horrible death.

Israel: "our bad."

Maybe this stuff wouldn't keep happening if the U.N, would crack down on terrorists using their stuff for cover.
You know, using U.N. ambulances for transporting Hezbollah weapons.
Looting U.N. humanitarian supplies.
Firring rockets from U.N. schools.

I hope I made AlGore cry yesterday

See, we were out in the sticks when we ran out of propane for the pear burner and needed to bend two sticks of conduit.
So I fired up the big Vermeer trencher and ran it at full throttle while I heated the conduit from it's exhaust.

I wonder what else I could have done to affect the 'kitten of the sea' just to make the PETArds cry?

Repeating a post

In which I linked to Xran and his simple timeline on the RoP, and how you can refer to Hammas supporters as Nazis.

It's about a year old, but still pertinent.

BTW,,,doesn't Hajj Amin al-Husseini (bff's with Hitler, Himmler and Eichman)bear a striking resemblance to George Carlin?

Sunday, January 11, 2009

That dumbass that cut you off yesterday?

Yeah, the one that shot across four lanes to the off ramp with a cell phone jammed in his ear.

Guess what he's looking forward to getting in about 18 months?

Doesn't that thought make you feel safe?

How do you fit $3 million in a Zodiac?
Very carefully, or you might capsize.

Friday, January 09, 2009

I'm sorry...but

Am I the only one who saw the PETArd thing about renaming fish into "Sea Kittens" before?
I mean, it was almost six months ago when they came up with this thing.

Now all the *cool* bloggers are getting onto the *Sea Kitten* thing?

Doooods, they started this almost six months ago, I may have even tossed off a post about it. So, one of the 'Big Bloggers' saw it and ran with it- now you all have to do the obligatory posting?

Isn't that kinda ...insescestual?

So does that mean we're supposed to call them "Kitten of the Sea?"

The price of gas is going up

Here it's gone up about a quarter in the last two weeks.
I heard something on the radio that the increase is because of the Israeli/Gaza war.

Ok, I can buy that, because we what kind of OPEC powerhouses both of them are.
Added to the fact that they control the strategic access small part of the eastern Mediterraneans shoreline.

And the fact that the Palies couldn't keep an oil pipeline working if their lives depended on it.

Yep, I can see the thinking behind this price bid-up.

OHHH,,,that blue U.N. truck the IDF blew up? That has Pali occupants, what kind of rocket was it hauling?

On this day

In 1814, a certain future president went down to N'awlins...

So I'm supposed to feel sorry for her?

Her first tour of Iraq was in 2006, about five years after we invaded,,,(with the U.N.s approval- you Liberal Bush haters).
She had to have had *some* thoughts on the morality of the Iraq war before she enlisted.
For some reason, I think her ,,,awakening,,, in Iraq had something more to do with the realities of living in a third world country than the way the war was being run.

So when these draft dodgers deserters war resisters head to Canada to live, do they need to get a job or are they supported by those 'War Resisters Supporters Campaign' in all their needs?

As sure as I put this up

The worlds anti semetic outrage at the presumtiveness of Israel to defend its self will make this obsolete...
But now Israel is kicking @ss and they need to do whatever they need to do...

Can I pick a time to put up a post like this or what?
I guess it's a good thing I didn't do something like this a week ago.

Filling The Lighbringers seat

All this brohaha about Blagojevich holding the seat for the highest bid is a little ,,,
perplexing to me.
The Dems didn't have any problems approving appointments and policies made by a U.S. President while under Congressional impeachment. Chit, they took glee in rubber stamping them.

Now, for some reason, it's bad for a Governor who is supposed to be presumed innocent to do his duty. Why there's a need to rush to fill it is beyond me, since they should be used to it being empty.
I mean it's been empty almost as long as HIMSELF has been a Senator and he's been running for President.
Or am I missing something there?

Why do mice just *have* to wait until I'm trying to sleep before they start gnawing their way into my house?
I mean, -daym, we've had so many mice here already that there should be some kind of mouse highway.
But,,,NOOOOoooo, out intrepid ratones want to make their own way to visit the mouse trap, so they want to start when people are trying to sleep.

I left the skirting open specifically so those feral cats would go after the mice.
Didn't work, they were both tearing up the underneath of my house in a co-operative effort to show how much they appreciated my $75,000 habitat for wayward critters.

I'm almost asleep (again) when they have to start gnawing in the middle of my bedroom.

An interview

With our newest Senato from NY.
In a curious bit of prescience...and set to music.

Yes THAT Caroline Kennedy.

But why not?
They've got a comic who hasn't been funny since his '80s SNL gig that just got done stealing the Min. election...

Sunday, January 04, 2009


I went out to get some beer earlier and while I was opening the gate I saw three cats coming out from the neighbors house.
Actually it was a cat and two catlets, mostly white and about 20 yards from where I was standing.
What was I to do?
Go back to the house for the .22, or dig through the back seat of the cab for the .38?
Since I haven't been able to stop at the range after work for various reasons- weather, time, etc... my last target had a pattern about as big as a dinner plate.
As much as I hate feral cats, I decided to not not shoot at something I wasn't sure of killing.

So I got in the truck and went on a beer run.

Israel VS the world

Israel is doing what it has to do to defend herself from unrepentant terrorists who's only purpose in life it to kill as many Jews as possible.
I read a post that I'd link to if I could remember where it was (it was yesterday and I've slept since then) that basically pointed out the utter hypocrisy of almost all the other nations in the world concerning the "Jewish question."
It went something like this; the world and the U.N. are condemning Israel for defending it's self.
If a country sent troops to kidnap your citizens and soldiers it was a right to take action against that country- until Israel did.
If a country attacked yours with missiles, it was a right to take defensive action- until Israel did.
If a group of people began sending their suicide bombers across the border, no one would object to a war being declared- until Israel did.

I'm glad Israel is going after those organized terrorists, and they need to tell the terrorist apologists to STFU and do what they need to do in order to make their citizens safer. Make the Gazinians(?) feel real pain, not this fake 'feel bad for me because I'm being oppressed' crap. Keep making them hurt until they HAVE to make changes in their attitude.

BTW- all these Arab countries that feel so badly for the Palies...why don't they offer a patch of desert somewhere and see if they can match Israels example?
But we know the answer to that, don't we- that the Palies are nothing but rabid dogs that no one wants around.

A five day week-end

It's a nice thought, except that if you don't work you don't get paid.
I just got back from the bank and can see from the way people are driving, that SAPD and their emergency responders are going to be busy.

Going through Castroville I was almost broadsided by some senile old f ck an elderly gentleman crossing HWY 90.
Then on the way east to San Antonio, was made aware of my lack of speed by a black F-150 Fx4 and the way he was cutting lanes to get ahead of us. He finally made it to the head of the pack when we got to the 410 exit and he was able to get off about five cars ahead of me. I hope when he finds the wreck he's looking for, I don't know anyone involved.

Add the fact that it's a drizzly kind of day where the roads are kinda greasy feeling and I'm glad I'm home.
Now to see what I can do about a good looking prototype for my conduit bell-end maker.

Israels innocent victims

Sorry, we're talking about Gaza where everyone who can walk is an enemy of Israel.
The population voted for Hammas to be their Representative government.
The 'civilian population' is actively assisting in stockpiling rockes, ammunition or explosives to use against Israel.
There is almost no one in Gaza that is an innocent bystander.

There are alot of brainwashed people out there- and not just in the territories (calling Hollyweird and the unsinkable Cindy Brown) who think that Israel somehow has less than a right to defend her people from indiscriminate rocket fire.

What I want to know is where -in the last 60 years- is this vaunted Islamic, Arab brotherhood who looks out for their unfortunate brothers?
I mean Israel isn't much bigger than New Jersey but can accommodate the returning faithful- BUT all the arab nations surrounding Israel can't find a piece of desert to relocate their fellow moslims? They force them to live in the security zone?

Not that I blame them- I wouldn't want them infecting my population with their 'rage against...power' because who would want to knowingly bring a rabid dog into their house?
