Change the America

Wow! Finally a very clear reel of Obama up to his most genuine slight of hand with his first lady!!!

This says so much
about the administration and their actions and fairly much everything.

Yes, by the way, that really is the Barry Hussein Obama.

Rush was right, he is indeed Barack the Magic Negroe:



Photo of Alfred

For those familiar with Alfred's ruminations I received a very odd communique purporting an image of Alfred the Man Esq.

Of course it could be wrong. This is merely an interwebstubesenroots rumor.

It wouldn't surprise me what with the languid and dreamy death in the subject's eyes, however.


Alfred, is this really you?

First World War Almost Over

On paper at that. The ordinance will pose problems for who knows how long.

We recently stopped paying a tax for the Spanish American war.

War is horrendous and stupefyingly expensive, it breaks nations and empires.

I do like what Colin Powell said about the Americans fighting and dying overseas and asking for only enough land to bury our dead.

I have my grandfathers bayonet from WWI but never met him. As it worked out we'll never know of his experiences "over there". One of his relatives was visiting Boston from Halifax when they found out that they had no family to return to after the Halifax explosion.

I did meet and was fond of a man who sang with Irving Berlin, who has since passed as well.

It seems beyond my ken what folks experienced in those short time frames. If you were born in 1900 you saw the first world war ravage civilization in your late teens, and it did not end. You were a parent watching your children off to a greater conflagration in your early forties.

I read Steven Ambrose's book about the trans-continental railroad. In it he mentions an individual who was old enough to be a coal tender on the engine at the Utah golden spike ceremony in 1869. He lived to see movie tone news footage of the air war over Europe. Now that is a witness to change.

The same human nature, geared up and intensified almost beyond belief.

It is nice to know WWI is coming to an end, I will buy a poppy and think too much.

I will link info in a short bit, though all the info is easily found out there.

Berlinski

I love Thatcher and have an autographed leather bound auto bio in her pen.

I also have very much enjoyed Claire Berlinski's articles and thoughts where I have been fortunate enough to see them or hear them. I jotted her name down and have intended to pick up her first book though I have not as of yet.

That having been said, I look forward to watching this:

Paycheck Fairness Act

I remember watching, and for the very first time, George Will debate someone on ABC over the notion of "comparable worth".

That was somewhere around 1983? Can I look that up somehow? Just looked and "early 1980s is the most precise.

I was an instant fan, he wiped up the floor with whatever pathetic sap had the untenable opposition.

So now, again, the Paycheck Fairness Act?

Just read the list of players, ugh.

I have been saying for quite some time that in the circles I witness the women are doing better than the men.

At any rate this act is horrendous. Read it and form your own conclusions.

I condemn all of our political and media class, wholeheartedly, as is well known.

The Constitution

Here is an article in the Economist which anyone with a portion of thinking matter may fisk and quite easily.

Essentially the writer believes that "Tea-Partiers" fetishize the Constitution to a degree which is incompatible with modern realities and that they have their histories and contemporary pragmatisms completely in error.

The comments are amusing.

I did like this one.

The author of the article is clearly too self-worshiping to feel uncomfortable at the witness of his own febrile reasoning and public beclowning.

Time Magazine

Has a bit on the Top Ten Toilets.

Time and Newsweek were horrendous in the 1980s, absolutely awful. I tried to cancel my parents subscription with a letter, was complimented on my writing but the folks vetoed the cancellation. I continued to read with morbid fascination. They declined and degraded and...it's almost indescribable how awful they are now. Time and Newsweek, understand. You must actually pick up an issue, any recent will do, and show someone. They won't believe how bad they are. Let me take a moment to once again shake my head in consideration of that ass Mr. Meacham.

Anyhow, let me add one more crapper to the list--yes, Time magazine.

via Atlas Shrugs, which reminds me to go look at how bad LGF has become. Not going to hypertext to that sad lost soul, wow, he also boggles the mind.

Mohamed was a vile disgusting individual. Here is a post with a video of an actual stoning, if it were committed by any group other than muslims the media and the female advocates would be screaming from the rooftops. Do they hold their tongues because they hate the West so much, because they hate and think the muslims incapable of humanity, or because on some level they hate themselves?

Even more gruesome and heart wrenching, even more chilling is this letter from an encounter...well, brace yourself and read it all, please.

Where is the outrage on the left and in the media. Where is the relentless flight of lawyers and journalists and condemnations from jackasses like Barak...oh...never mind.

They are too busy condemning the number of ice creams available to prisoners in Gitmo and condemning the tolerant West.

There seem to be two new little adorable critters abouts in the last several days.

One apparently goes by the moniker of Columbus, and the other the name Mendel.

Auntie Zeituni

Is she a stealth advocate against Obama's policies and assistance?

Confusingly, perhaps...at any rate she owes nothing to anyone and may pull Obama's ears and generally smack him around as she deems fit.

Two parts, though it is clear much is edited. I would love to see the entire uncut time frame.

Anyone who agrees to an interview without setting up some simple camera to record it for their own records as well is a fool in this day and age. That's probably a tea party rule.

Zeituni's clips via DC TRawler:





I have had some suggestions on the dimensions of the videos, they don't appear to be helping. I recommend clicking and watching them on the youtube format...here, and here, they are compelling pieces, however, and I am surprised, stunned at the very least, that the fourth estate opened an eye at all! Good times!

Data

I do enjoy data and associated resources.

Here is a fine site for films:

http://boxofficemojo.com/

Where the url is reasonably workable I have taken to posting it and hyperlinking it.

I have noticed a couple of words in the archives which are hyperlinked with no clue as to where to pursue the information when said link is dead. This may look awkward but may help someone digging in the future, so I lean toward helping the info digger. You may have noticed it recently and you shall see more anon.

Jimmy in TX

I am hoping Jimmy is having a lovely time of it along his journey to the Gulf of America.

I am rooting for him and I think that I will give him a call this afternoon on his spanky new cell phone device.

I understand you merely keep this device charged up with that new fangled electricity juice and then, if you must and need to, you can use it to communicate with a much wider world than the one which is apparent to the naked eye as you peruse your immediate environment.

I say that seems a little far fetched, no pun intended, and I will put this claim to the test, perhaps this very afternoon.

Check back for results!

Homer Simpson

I am very very interested in what this auction brings.

I have never seen the full size Weber Simpson anniversary edition up for auction, though I check on a regular basis.

The small ones are around, but this gentleman has another 3 days left and for such a unique piece I am surprized there is not a heck of a lot more attention already.

Early yet, I suppose.

Mine is in the box, never opened.

Homer Simpson Weber 22.5" One Touch charcoal grill

Mole

I spotted the intruder recently and laid out my strategies.

Then I waited.

I finally apprehended the mole, he had been operating right amongst my most personal matters, he had access to everything.

I gave him a thorough sounding with the old school sticky pad treatment.

I wasn't sure he would make it, but I managed to get my information and I can say to you that he has nothing good to tell his blokes back at home base.

I never knew they were so stretchy, those informants, or, if you must "moles".

That's all

Carry on...

D'nesh D'souza

Boortz points to an excellent article examining Obamas motives and internal calculus.

I have mentioned D'souza before and do believe he was wrongly set upon by his own pack out of the most childish of motives: fear of appearing uncool.

He was right that Western laciviousness is a motivating factor to the Islamic insanity and we won't countenance it in the least.

Your daughter has tattoos and piercings and is wearing a thong while she cheats on her 40th boyfriend? Never question the sexual revolution.

Read material from the Koran and Hadith which would have you kill her?

That's O.k. for you exotic muslims.

Want to burn the books which advocate killing the whores?

Now you have to go...

The sad mind of the Dhimmis.

Anyway his examination of Obama is also compelling, I think that Dinesh deserves an apology from his own camp, I only hope he maintains his own compass with strength and vigor as he moves through these times, he is an asset to us all.

He concludes his piece in Forbes quite well:

"Colonialism today is a dead issue. No one cares about it except the man in the White House. He is the last anticolonial. Emerging market economies such as China, India, Chile and Indonesia have solved the problem of backwardness; they are exploiting their labor advantage and growing much faster than the U.S. If America is going to remain on top, we have to compete in an increasingly tough environment.

But instead of readying us for the challenge, our President is trapped in his father's time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father's dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost."

Waterfowl Festival

The Northeast Waterfowl Festival is this weekend in East Hartford and it looks like it has all sorts of photoriffic opportunities.

Who can guess what spec on the new D7000 has me beyond all others. Sure, it has incredible upgrades in all areas and looks like a fantastic device, but I don't have the financial wherewithal to justify anything right now. However there is one aspect of that spec sheet which, almost, on a limited basis, justify the investment, for me that is...or so I can tell myself for a minute or two before reality sets in.

The clincher for my drool is buried in this write up.

Anyhow Maggies Farm was and is very well informed and kind enough to remind us all of the delightful waterfowl festival. If you don't have Maggie's Farm bookmarked you are a IdiotDummy and big and fat! All five of those things you are!!

Federalist Papers

It has been years since I read, and enjoyed, those important works collectively called the "Federalist Papers".

I notice a quote by a commenter over at Volkh and a fine quote indeed.

What is so painful to me, and so alien to those with lives too busy and rich to notice, is the insanity of liberals and those in the Legal teaching sphere, which is to nearly repeat myself.

When I tell people that it is not just considered valid but considered a timely and important discussion in the Law Prof world, to consider weather humans have ANY rights at all, at the same time trying to hash out what rights animals have...Well, we are in trouble. Deep trouble.

To read these jerks suggesting that somehow our government is so complicated and technical, even compare it to a skyscraper, is just discouraging with a chaser of I want to see their teeth knocked out.

Here is the quote, who's side are you on, Madison, or a bunch of Legal Douche's who fluttered and swooned in the cult of Obama?:

Federalist #62:
It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.

Islam

It is perfectly ethical for muslims to lie to infidels in order to further their power and success.

This was evident manifestly in the actions of the islamic (I will be petty and not capitalize the cult's title) community during the last week's hullabaloo.

I own a very nice leather bound, silk end papered koran.

I also have been practicing setting a fire without a lighter or a match.

What I burn or draw is my business, Muslims need to stop imposing their religion on the Western world, they wish to enslave us, and we have far too many dhimmis to help them.

My Fur Freaks


I have two very close friends (actually family) who are furballs and they have both been quite ill. The tall one has been feeling awful this week. The wee one has a situation that requires a lot of attention and this has been transpiring for some time with the caring attention of his great grandma, grandma and hard studying mom and sundry characters who donate love and attention. Hopefully for a long time this will continue, if all goes well.

Here is a prayer and a shout out to two of the fantastic furred friends whom I love.

Tuck:








He's got it all that kook. Humor, balance (when he is not stumbling or wobbling but he has been raised in an Irish influenced household so it is likely mimicry), ingenuity, confidence, and a near perfect ability to blend in with his environment. So long as said environment is indoors, dry and resembles laundry or an ample down comforter. God Bless lad!

Poor Abby tugged at my heartstrings today. More than nauseous and still rallying to say hello to me in her exuberant fashion of boundless energy and waggling stick-to-it-iveness, even if for today that was a masque:





video





I love them both dearly and if you have a moment of good will say a poochie prayer for the angels.

Take, also, a moment to thoroughly contemplate the wonders of your friends, furred and otherwise.

Poor Abbs, she was being such a trooper I want to give her a huge hug, vommity breath and all!

They can't be all bad, those critters, if they seem to enjoy giving me a kiss. Me, more foul than their very own exits I must ASSume.

God Bless Tuck and Abby.

And Klara and Quinn and Reilly and Bubba and Lilo and Stitch and Tiger and Mittens and, Jimmy (nope, not another pet but the Irish accountant) throw me some of your pet's sobriquets! It occurs to me I don't know your pet's names.

Adam knows I am fairly poor with names but I did spell Klara correctly! I will do a pet montage soon.

Rocksy, Shivers, Max, and, well, I am still trying to work the dang hard drive keep loving and appreciating your furry companions both living and romping the meadows beyond, if you know whats good for you...

M1's

In case you may not have noticed the Obama administration has decided that weapons which we have lent to other nations, in this instance Korea, we would rather see destroyed than put back through the normal CMP cycle or some other such process.

The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates.

A State Department spokesman said the administration’s decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.

“The transfer of such a large number of weapons — 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines — could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes,” the spokesman told FoxNews.com.

“We are working closely with our Korean allies and the U.S. Army in exploring alternative options to dispose of these firearms.”

Others will comment far more eloquently than myself. I will, however, suggest that Obama is a panzy, and that tyrants tend to be overwrought panzies. I would not be surprised to see him attempt to quarter his civilian force which he suggested should rival the military in size and strength amongst us without our consent and while searching for our weapons.

No, I am not kidding.

The MSM will shove his vile "comprehensive immigration reform" down our throats.

Liberals are turds on a hot day.

"...potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes..."

Purposes as illicit as maintaining a healthy regard from our metastasizing government.

I will own one, CMP or otherwise, and if the GOP has any set or fortitude this will not be the end of these weapons. Weapons we loaned, not gave.

Obama and his administration are sissies and that tends to end badly for all when they are handed a badge.

See police forces...and, no, I don't need to apologize to all of the fine officers out there, because the patriots and decent among them agree.
