Back in the day, this was HUUUUUUGE!!!!

Oh man, and this!

Let's make lots of money!

Two Divided By Zero.

I've always thought Cyndi Lauper is a much better artist than the slut Madonna.

More of the same.

The first summer I had my own car - in the UK, this was huge in the UK.

Video Killed the Radio Star.

It's all about bandwidth.

I keep getting questions about my new T-Shirt.

Apparently, nobody remembers this.

What a week.

The President cancels a missile defence system to be built in Poland and the Czech Republic, and the Iranians respond by revealing a second nuclear materials processing plant. That's quite a slap in the face.

Oh, and the Russians get a boost, for free: All your Poles are belong to us.

The President wants to embrace the Iranians, who respond by revealing a second nuclear materials processing plant. That's quite a slap in the face.

One question I've not heard asked is just how the assorted US intelligence agencies missed all this.

Back in 2003 we were told Iran was years away from nukes, while Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Iraq didn't, and it looks like Iran soon will.

What's going to happen out of all this?

Well, Europe, enervated and all its money spent on wlefare, cannot project power. It;ll roll over. Amaerica, under President Pantywaist, will do nothing. The only people who will art are the Israelis. If the Iranians get nukes, and IRBMs, then Israel faces destruction. Israel will attack,

Israel may have some new-found advantage: the only working Iranian AWACS just got taken out in a mid-air collision with an F-5. So, no early warning for the Iranians.

Brzezinski has indicated Obama would shoot down Israeli jets rather than let then overfly Iraq en-route to Iran. The Israeli's have some Boeing 707s converted to do in-flight refueling, so I guess they could fly all the way around the Saudi peninsula, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Saudis were to give the Israelis permission to overfly. They might even give them an E-3.

Wow! Now, even the French are mocking President Obama.

The only things missing from Sarkozy's speech are references to hamsters, elderberries, and farting in a particular direction.

Oh, you'll note that Sarkozy's speech was not covered by the US legacy media. Great Leader must always appear, well, great.

Yikes! The Brits are calling him President Pantywaist.

I lived through the GLOBAL FREEZING worry of the 1970's, so please forgive me if I declare "bollocks" on the GLOBAL WARMING worry of the 2000's.

Especially when I come across this.

No. Really. I remember reading an Isaac Asimov (a man I personally worship) story about a future (circa 2000) freezing society, and how easy the freezing might have been to avoid, had we taken the proper measures, in the 1970's.

And now we're boiling. Apparently.

I've no doubt he proudly voted Democrat.

This might be one way for the Blue States to match the Red State birthrate. And the whole inbred thing would guarantee natural Democrat voters. With flippers! And actual tails!

While preparing to hand us a defeat in Afghanistan, The Won concentrates on mending relations with degenerates.

He really hates this country.

I say just anesthetize the passengers and stack 'em like wood.

Brought to you by the National Endowment for the ArtsPropaganda.

Monday, September 21, 2009

So, The Won was on all the Sunday morning politics shows yesterday. Except Fox News, naturally, as he couldn't depend on softballs there and didn't want to appear the blithering, tongue-tied idiot he actually is.

Tonight he's to appear on the David Letterman show, for more softballs.

Am I the only one thinking (a) he's getting a little overexposed, and (b) he's getting a bit desperate?

He's a little man, just like Carter, and like Carter, he's making his Office a very small one.

Jesus! Late night comedy shows!

The only upside I see to all this is NATO falls apart and Russia extends its influence over all of Western Europe, just in time to get stuck with the Muslim rampages that are surely coming.

So, good one, Baracky, leaving that poison pill. Pity about the Czechs and the Poles, though. But they're used to this sort of treatment, after all.

I wonder what this is all about.

Look like The Won has been demanding the NEA provide supportive propaganda.

Is this actually legal?

Given ACORN, and now this, when will we hear calls for a special prosecutor?

Oh. Right. Democrat. Laws are for little people. And Republicans.

UPDATE: By Jove, this might well have been illegal:
Public funds are not supposed to be expended to support partisan projects. Beyond that, it is unconstitutional to grant or deny federal funds on the basis of the recipient's political actions or opinions. National Endowment for the Arts v. Finley. The NEA is the single largest funder of the arts, and several participants in the August 10 conference call had recently received NEA checks. It would have been entirely reasonable for those on the phone call to conclude that future NEA funding could be influenced by their willingness to play ball with the Obama administration's political agenda. Moreover, the Hatch Act limits the ability of federal employees to engage in partisan politics. Sergant's sending of the email invitation to artists and arts groups, using his government email account, could be considered a bright line violation of the act, as could his apparent solicitation of political support from any arts group that had an application for funding pending before the NEA. Likewise, Ms. Wicks' participation in the call would appear to be illegal if she was "on duty" and if the call was deemed political in nature.

It would take a thorough knowledge of the facts and more legal research than I've had time for to draw a conclusion as to whether the White House or NEA violated the law in connection with the artist outreach, but at a minimum an investigation is in order.

Bring on the Special Prosecutor!

Obama really is another Carter.

With any luck, the Pentagon will throw in lots of administrative delays - as it did with the B-1 - to preserve some nuclear deterrent.

UPDATE: President Barack Obama is beginning to look out of his depth. With guest star appearance by Jimmah Carter.

Thursday, September 17, 2009

President Obama stabs our allies in the back. For no gain, as far as I can see.

If we're lucky, President Obama won't be much worse than President Carter.

If we're lucky.

UPDATE: We're not lucky.

In a month or two, the US Congress will have to consider the President's request to raise the US debt limit. This time, the request will be to raise the debt limit to about $12 trillion.

The last time such a request was made, the junior US Senator from Illinois, Barack Hussein Obama, refused to assent, declaring that "Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership."

I expect the debt limit to be raised, on or about the beginning of November, without comment.

Democrats are hypocrites who are willing to shift the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. Democrats have a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Charlie Gibson is naturally unavailable for comment.

ACORN under the bus.

One leftie organization down.

Many more to go. Still. The model's in place, so now it's step and repeat.

Thank you, Saul Alinsky.

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

It looks like ACORN, the organization that stuffed ballot boxes for The Won in the last election, also gives out advice on how to set up brothels filled with 13 year old prostitutes and use the proceeds to fund a political career.

Barbara Boxer, for one, is voting to defund ACORN.

Look: they're doing it in New York, too!

And DC.

The great thing about President Obama is the way he's getting the light of day shone on all these human cockroachessupporters of his.

The lagacy media is unavailable for comment.

Thank you, Saul Alinsky.

This evening as I was driving home, I was listening to NPR on XM radio. One topic of conversation was the President's decision to have US Special Forces kill an AQ leader in southern Somalia.

One topic that came up was the degree to which the US has attrited AQ in the past few years, to the point where AQ's having trouble recruiting. Funny, I was led to believe the last President's policies had put us in more danger. And no sooner is he out the door, on a tide of legacy media booing, than we learn that he was, in fact, teaching Americans enemies to cower under our lash. Oh well, no matter. In this internet age, the legacy media's various hypocrisies are obvious to any who care to look.

Then, I get home and discover this.

Now, according to the overheated rhetoric I heard when GWB was President, the USA PATRIOT Act was an example of the President using the US Constitution to wipe his butt. Now that The One has decided he wants the main provisions extended, what are we to think? That he too is wiping his bum with that same US Constitution? (Yes, I believe The Won Who Has Been Promised Us At This Time feeds, respires and excretes, just like the rest of us.)

Yes. Yes. The various hypocrisies, etc., etc.

I fully expect, four or eight years out (four for preference), to be told by the same legacy media that former President Obama's policies gave hope and comfort to America's enemies. Certainly, the North Korean, Iranian, Libyan, and Venezuelan trolls are all looking invigorated. (I mean, can you believe that Libyan bastard was let go after serving 11.5 days per murder he committed? With the quiet assent of the UK and US governments? For nothing more than access to Libyan oil and gas, no less?!?!?!?!!! "No blood for oil"? Oy!)

Dude's right. In Obama's America, nobody should have to choose between health insurance and getting drunk.

Right now a google search of news results for "Joe Wilson" gets about 5800 links.

A similar search of "Tea Party" gets about 170 links.

Not that there's any news bias, or anything.

A report from the front lines.

Apparently, the whole thing involves, oh, ordinary Americans.

Oh, by the way, The Won's speech on health care reform, that huge "fuck you" to the disagreeable American public: Starting to look like a bit of a swan dive. And those never end well. Which, in this instance, well: YAY!!!!!

Saturday, September 12, 2009

As far as I can tell, the legacy media (ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT) have either overlooked or minimized the two million-strong demonstration that just happened in DC.

In other words, if you are getting your news from the legacy media, today's demonstration didn't happen.

So, here's wnat I'm waiting for: that legacy media interview, where a rabid leftistprogressive looks with doe-eyed horror into a camera and proclaims "I don't know how health care reform can have failed. Everyone I know voted for it."

Mmm. Right now, my nipples could cut glass.

Dear Great Leader,

Thank you for introducing me to Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayres, and Saul Alinsky. Oh, and Community Organizers.

I promise to use, and preach, their playbook until you are on the trash heap of history. Where you belong.


The People Are Revolting! (Add your Mel Brookes comment here.)

The British press is actually reporting on the two million, rather than spinning.

UPDATE: The New York Times, largest propaganda organ of The Won declares "tens of thousands" showed up. Tens of thousands can amount hundreds of thousands, and to two million after a while, so I guess they won't have to use their error page on this one. Pity they don't have a "lies by omission" page.

Two million people show up in DC to protest the communization of the USA, and CNN serves up this.

I have to tell you: the last time I saw this sort of disconnect between the press and the general populace, Ronald Reagan got elected.

No. I swear to god. That summer I was working in NJ for the second time, and again for Sophocles at the New Monmouth Hotel, in Asbury Park - a stone's throw from The Stone Pony and Bruce Springsteen. (Good times, good times.) (I also saw Peter Gabriel and Joe Jackson at the convention hall.) (Visible in the boardwalk background just before Big Pussy got whacked.)

Anyway. The (soon-to-be) legacy media were portraying Reagan as The Beast Of The Last Days, ready to call up Armageddon, while Jimmah was the Lamb of God, ready to take away more of America's sins. In Asbury Park, nobody was buying it. They were up for tarring and feathering Jimmah, and for riding him out of town on a rail. The economy was that bad, and the Persians had sincerely fucked us that badly in the ass, by his leave. (For example, Sophocles' hotel was mostly sustained by Canadian Greeks coming south from Toronto for a few months of sun, and they mocked the US for allowing itself to be fucked in the ass by others than Greeks.) (But I digress.) (I think.)

After that summer I went back to Ireland. People asked me who would win the general election, Reagan or Jimmah? I answered Reagan, in a landslide. They couldn't believe it.

And how could they. The images fed to them by the (soon-to-be) legacy media were completely at odds with opinion on the street. You know: what the electorate was thinking. I think we're seeing the same thing again.

Oh, and Reagan did win the election, that year.

OH!!!!! Mrs LivinInAmerica points out that The Won actually ran from DC today. He'll return tomorrow, of course, as the dog he is, returning to his vomit.

UPDATE: Apparently the protest ended with the people taking their trash with them. As opposed to The Won's inauguration, when the streets were left piled high with filth. Says it all, really.

15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi.

"That's it, bitch. Grovel!"

(Damn! Look at the *shine* on that ass!)

Friday, September 11, 2009

So, The Won really was lying.

This would explain the legacy media fainting spell over Senator Wilson's remarks: distract from the truth.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Enter THE WON, stage center, to a massive, sustained, almost Politburo-like, round of applause. THE WON smiles, beatifically. THE WON exchanges pleasantries with the Secretary of State. Something along the lines of "I won, bitch."

THE WON is introduced by Nancy Pelosi. Rapturous applause.

Applause dies down. THE WON clears his throat and begins to speaksprinkle his wisdom upon the world, just as a gentle rain might drop from heaven...


I have saved you from a minor down-tick in the economy. I'm calling it the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, because a crisis is something you don't want to waste. I was able to stampede you into two spending bills, one for $410 billion, the other for $787 billion. I was able to stampede the house into cap-and-tax. Pay no attention to the rising jobless numbers.

Hey, Dingell inherited his seat. How cool is that?!?!?!!!!

Peggy Joseph is still having to pay for her mortgage and her gas, so more deficit spending is necessary. Thanks in advance. And thanks too, to the rubes who'll be stuck with this bill.

My future is to be God-Emperor. After me, other Presidents will take the title of "Barack," in honor of me for making them as close as a third-millennial American leader might come to the absolute life-and-death power of the pre-modern ruler. The way to this is another crisis. A health care crisis.

There are 4730 million who don't have bets with bookies about how their health may turn out. Some don't want to make the bet - they prefer to spend their money on iPods or foreign vacations, some are presented with high odds by their bookies. Others go to cash in, only to find their bookie has welshed. In the name of my God-Emperorhood, people, we have to end these bookies. I'm going to be the God-Emperor bookie. You will all bet. With me. I will subsidize those of you who can't afford to bet by sending Tony Sopranothe IRS to take moneyu from those who refuse to bet. After you make me God-Emperor, of course.

Right now, when things go bad for bookies, or their families, the Federal Government steps in and makes them good. This is expensive, and takes away from my ivory backscratcher fund.

We need to fundmentally change our system of health care betting. Let me triangulate the mad-dogs of the right and left, in order to make my idea be the best.

Speaking of which, thanks very much Congress, for all those betting reform bills bills, but you suck. My ideas are the best, so shut up and get on board.

Hi John, you cutie!

John McCain likes it when I say nice things about him.

America: hundreds of millions of you are going to have to change the way you manage your health care so tens of millions of others can start sucking at the government teat. If this sounds like 90% of you are going to have to take it in the ass for the other 10%, well, tough. I won. And I want to be God-Emperor.

Betting on the future state of your personal private health is like betting how things will turn out when you drive a car on a public road. Who'd a thunk it?!?!?!!!! I WOULD!!!! BECAUSE I WILL BE GOD-EMPEROR!!!!!

I haven't a clue really what I'm doing, but even a blind pig finds the occasional ACOR....um...never mind. Nut. Yeah, even a blind pig finds the occasional nut.

And when I find that nut, I will share. Promise. 5% to you. Minimum.

People have been lying about my plans for health care. You see, I have no plans. so, everything they say, of necessity, is a lie.

I don't want health betting companies to make profits. Profits are bad.

I've estimated my non-existent plan won't add to the national debt. And you can trust government estimates. Look at Medicare, for example. I will fund my plan by making medicare more efficient, and harder to defraud. If you don't give in to my plan, I'll make Medicare less efficient, and easier to defraud. So there.

As a lawyer, let me say that ambulance chasers like John Edwards have nothing to fear from me. In fact, I'll limit the tests doctors can do to make it even easier for ambulance chasers to prove cases and thereby retire to 24,000 square foot mansions. And contribute MASSIVELY to the DemocratBarack party of the USA.

Give me my plan and shut the hell up. If you don't give me my plan, there'll be a crisis. A CRISIS!

Mary Jo Kopechne's chauffeur is in favor of this plan. He was always free with other people's money.

There used to be a limit to government. Then government got stupid and, as we all know, there's no limit on stupidity. Give me my plan.

Barack for God-Emperor.

If a Republican were President, this would be in the news for the next three years, at least.

I think it's time to start the meme that The Won stole the election.

Over the past few weeks, I've been listening to liberal after liberal scoffing at Sarah Palin's "Death Panels."

Do they not realize they've only been amplifying her message?

It appears the President is to address us this evening, to outline The Mary Jo Kopechne Health Care Reform Act of 2009. That will be a literal first.

I'd be up for something gold-plated, like the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan. Of course, that wouldn't bend down Mr Orszag's cost curve would it?

Or hey! Maybe the Feds could shut down the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan and join the lumpen proletariat in whatever single-payer system eventually comes to pass. (Yes, crickets chirping.)

If the government takes over paying for our health care, rationing will follow, as night follows day. And yes, that does include "Death Panels." If you doubt it, compare outcomes for cancer patients in the UK and the US.

In the end we the peasants will have the benefit of socialism - the equal sharing of misery, while the nomenclatura will continue with its Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan.

Spare me. I'd prefer to take responsibility for my own future and my own outcomes, rather than depend on America's only native criminal class.

Monday, September 07, 2009

Well, that's rather tasteless, isn't it?

I think the proper response to the WWF is "Earth first! We can log the other planets later."

In the last US Presidential election, 54% of the votes went to a man with seven years in the Illinois Senate, and three years in the US Senate.

Everything about his life is either disavowed or hidden. And that's fine with his propaganda arm, the legacy media.

The sheer arrogant stupidity of the man boggles me. In his first meeting with Republicans, he made the point "I won." Well, guess what, you arrogant buffoon, every person in that room had won an election! And most without the typhoon-like tailwind of the legacy media pushing them on.

Two trillion dollars in deficit this year. The national debt to double in five. Card check. Health care socialization. Cap-and-tax. Auto and finance industries nationalized. No wonder the unemployment rate's ticking up. A man with no practical experience is letting the most left-leaning Congress in history do what it will.

Hysterically, the legacy media reports the up-tick in the unemployment rate, but in terms like the rate of growth of unemployment is slowing. (But total unemployment is still increasing, right?)

In foreign policy, he's bowing and scraping to the Saudis, letting the Mullahs get their bomb, chastising the Israelis, cutting off aid to Honduras for throwing out a Chavez wannabe. His "Green Jobs" "Czar" (We now have more czars than Russia ever did, BTW) just quit when it came to light that he's a 9/11 Truther, an avowed communist, and a supporter of freedom for the odious murdering bastard, Wesley Cook.

I'm beginning to believe this man truly hates this country, and wants it brought low.

Hmm. Looks like 10% unemployment rate by Christmas.

Not that the legacy media will report it, or anything. Like the whole Van Jones story. If you only read the NYT, you're still wondering whiy he was sacrificed to the great god Underbus.

Thursday, September 03, 2009

Oh dear lord! Can it possibly be true that Bristol Palin's baby daddy is going to pose for Playgirl?

Uploaded because I still can.

Though, I expect America's true Fascists, the Democrat Party, will soon outlaw this picture.

I pledge *NOT* to be of service to Barack Obama.

I mean, except to the extent that his brown shirt, jackbooted, national socialist thugs put a gun to my head and *demand* support.

Because, unlike Charles Rangel, I don't write the rules for, oh, the IRS.

UPDATE: Was there ever an "I pledge to be of service to Ronald Reagan" campaign? Right. Asked and answered. Only Socialists need cults of personality.

Labels: , , ,

I'm sure Sarah Palin is somehow to blame for this.

Dinosaurs, or some such, as all of my more legacy media credulous acquaintances (in private, I prefer to them as "rubes") would believe.

They've asked why I'm a Palin supporter, given I'm nominally a critical thinker. All I can do is ask how much critical thought went into their selection of the current President. In my opinion, if we are to have empty-head empty-suits, better good-looking libertarian than grim socialist.

She's cute and sexy, and has a story that doesn't involve an entire life spent sucking on a government teat. Oh, and faking an American birth certificate.

What more could I ask?

When I was a kid, this was one of my favorite poems. Here it is, in the original Irish and with my translation. Bear in mind that my Irish is almost completely forgotten.


An tEarrach Thiar

- le Máirtín O'Direáin

The Western Spring

- by Martin Dirrane

Fear ag glanadh cré
De ghímseán spáide
Sa gciúnas shéimh
I mbrothall lae
Binn an fhuaim
San Earrach thiar.

A man cleaning soil
From the tread of his spade
In a shady corner
In the warmth of the day
Sweet the sound
In the Western Spring

Fear ag caitheadh
Cliabh dha dhroim
Is an fheamainn dhearg
Ag lonrú
I dtaitneamh gréine
Ar dhuirling bháin.
Niamhrach an radharc
San Earrach thiar.

A man throwing
A basket on his back
And the red reaweed
In the warmth of the sun
On a white stoney beach
A radiant sight
In the Western Spring.

Mná i locháin
In íochtar diaidh-thrá,
A gcótaí craptha,
Scáilí thíos fúthu:
Támh-radharc síothach
San Earrach thiar.

Women in tidepools
On a beach at low tide
Their well-used clothes
Reflected beneath them
A quiet, peaceful sight
In the Western Spring.

Toll-bhuillí fanna
Ag maidí rámha
Currach lan d’éisc
Ag teacht chun cladaigh
Ar ór-mhuir mhall
I ndeireadh lae
San Earrach thiar.

Regular soft strokes
Of woodean oars
A curragh full of fish
Coming to the quay
On the gold-dappled sea
At the end of the day
In the Western Spring.


In Ireland it mostly rains. So, when you get a day of perfect weather, especially in spring, it tends to stick with you.

Huh. Well, that explains a lot.

Another trip around the gravity well.

That makes about 27,467,364,000 miles, not counting Atlanta traffic.

At a dollar per mile, that means I'd have to live to be about 3,000 years old to match Obama's deficit, this year.

I put the numbers in perspective, so you don't have to.
