Now I know why American kids have switched to back-packs to carry their books.....

US Marines line up to board a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft
Those ten pound back pack carrying kids of today might well be one of these 90 pound back pack carriers of tomorrow! Lean forward to stand upright.  

Semper Fi!!

I don't believe I'll move to Detroit, thank you........

And not because of the weather -- which is reason enough in itself...

Nope, I was scanning the Drudge Report this morning and came across a story that caught my eye in the Detroit Free Press newspaper. It seems a couple of jerks, tied a two year old dog up behind a Walmart and went off and left it. It was so cold, the dog chewed off it's own paw.... happy ending, the dog was rescued, surgically treated and is awaiting adoption. 

But then as I was about to link back to Drudge, I noticed the next story in the Detroit paper.  A man was arrested and sentenced for beating his wife -- a second offense, no less.  But what makes the story sicker is that he beat her with their puppy!  Yep, I said puppy -- and didn't stop beating her until the puppy was dead!!

Again ready to flip - I noted a story where a young couple, both 26, pleaded guilty to raping a 1-year-old girl. The police discovered computer video of the assault as they were investigating charges that he had had sexual relations with a 14-year-old baby sitter. They are apparently both headed for a minimum of 25 years of state provided three hots and a cot. 

Enough! As I was clicking out of this city of the sick, I noted that a City Council member apologized for his recent and egregious drunk driving incident and arrest. He'll only get three hots and a cot for one week, however.  

And.......... I'm getting out of the Detroit Free Press newspaper before I lose all faith in people!!  And just in case you think I'm making this stuff here.

Presidents Day is coming February 16th ... or is it?

I won't go into the history of Presidents Day -- it's to long and convoluted, but I do know that most folks are clueless about it's meaning --  btw, to some it is Presidents Day....  to others it is President's Day....  for a third group it is Presidents' Day.   Confusing isn't it. 

Of course, for a fourth group, millions and millions of working Americans who don't happen to be in the Ruling Class in this country - an elected official or gob'mint employee..... it's just another work day..... 

In some States, the honoree is George Washington, Father of our Country - in others it is a celebration of Washington and Abe Lincoln's birthdays. In States un another geographic section of our country, it is a celebration of the birthdays of Washington and Thomas Jefferson.  

But for the real truth - let's go to the true source..... the mouths of Babes.  Last year, I had occasion to ask my 8 year-old great granddaughter if she knew what President's Day means.  She never missed a beat and replied, "President's Day is when the President steps out of the White House and onto the Rose Garden. And if he sees his shadow...... we get another year of Bull Shit!!"

And now you too, know the true meaning of President's Day!!

(with a little help from my vet friend Al up in the Peoples Republic of MD)

Black lives matter --- but not to the organization known as "Black Lives Matter"?

Forgive me folks, I don't often link videos in here - - seems like kind of a cop-out to putting words to paper.... er, um... on the monitor.  But this short three and a half minute video just released by Andrew Klavan seems so on point, I didn't want anybody to miss it....   I won't make any spoiler comments either..... oops, I did in the title of this post, didn't I, My bad!

Hope & Change win two cartoon prizes --- and deservedly so!!

My favorite political cartoon creator, Stilton Jarlsberg of Hope & Change won two awards for his 2014 Cartoons.......

Well Done Stilton!!! Well Done!!

Speaking of Justice ....... and I seem to be today...

I note with great interest the quietness of Eric Holder's Justice Department yesterday when they announced: 

Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

"Federal investigators interviewed more than 200 people and analyzed cellphone audio and video, the law enforcement officials said. Officer Wilson’s gun, clothing and other evidence were analyzed at the F.B.I.’s laboratory in Quantico, Va. Though the local authorities and Mr. Brown’s family conducted autopsies, Mr. Holder ordered a separate autopsy, which was conducted by pathologists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner’s office at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, the officials said.
The federal investigation did not uncover any facts that differed significantly from the evidence made public by the authorities in Missouri late last year, the law enforcement officials said. "
Now it remains to be seen how much (if any) coverage the Lame Stream Media will give to this report..............    I won't be looking at the front page, top of the fold in the NY Times nor the leads story at the major broadcast networks.   It will probably receive as much attention as Benghazi and the XL Pipeline. n`est-ce pas?

Justice Delayed............................. Justice Denied?

1923 = Last Execution
by Hanging in Texas
Last evening, Texas executed a 41 year old convicted murderer. It was the first execution of this young year. I'm sure that liberal hands will wring, professional opinionators will wail, and the the sun will come up in the East this morning. 

Twenty-one years ago, at the age of twenty, this poor feller that died going to sleep with an injection in an alcohol sanitized arm (go figure that one out) was one of three young fellers that broke into the San Antonio home of a 72-year old man, his 62-year old wife, and their live in 90-year old former nanny. They were in search of money and valuables.

Nobody knows exactly went on in that house that evening, nor exactly how long the torture and killings took -- but all three occupants died from multiple wounds inflicted by an ice pick, a screw driver, and a knife. I think we can assume that these were not instant painless deaths - performed on a gurney with alcohol sanitized instruments. 

The three young adult killers then grabbed their reward for their murderous, sadistic actions ....  some jewelry and $300 in cash. 

Oh, did I mention that that all three were high on cocaine, and that the 62-year old woman was the great-aunt of two of these lads? She invited them in and fixed them a breakfast of eggs, tortillas and orange juice. 

For those of you keeping score, one of the three killers was a day short of 17 so he received a life sentence instead of a death sentence. The second killer, identified by police and the defendants as the mastermind of this blood letting--- had all charges against him dropped. Prosecutors expressed regret about that. 
2015 = Huntsville TX

And the third member of the trio -- died last night after 21 years of appeals, care & feeding and legal fees............ quietly strapped to a gurney on nice clean sheets - after dining on BBQ beef, carrots, pinto beans and Iced Tea......

I hope that at 6:31 pm last night, he met a Greater Judge who decided his next lodging point!!

When does the insanity of Political Correctness end?

Don't know if you caught it, but in case you missed it, the Manager of the upscale restaurant in the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City set up a special menu for MLK Day. The menu, which she, the African-American Manager, decided on was the purported favorites of Dr King.  To wit: Fried Chicken Mac & Cheese, Collard greens, Sweet Potato Casserole and Pecan Pie..

The P.C, zealots fell on it in force!!  Racist!, they cried. Stereotyping!, they shouted. 

They were silent on Cinco de Mayo when a special Mexican menu was offered, a Chinese menu on the Chinese New Year, and Corned Beef & Cabbage on St Paddies day.....

Some folks reached out to the local NAACLP Chapter for a comment - but none was forthcoming.... I imagine they are waiting for a advice from Fat Al!!

The best comment I've read about this world shattering politically incorrect menu was:
'I'm only offended by the idea of paying $24 for fried chicken and Mac and cheese "

I like the way this feller thinks..............

And I reckon the same could be said for those inner scars we all carry from insults and hurts of the past. I use them as armor, not as hidey holes....

A Marine Corps Vet wrote this a while ago but it just came over my Transom last night.... (Thanx Al)

People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.
You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs (Republican In Name Only) to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to "white guilt" and political correctness... An American Veteran.........

About that State of the Union Address tomorrow night that 300 million Americans will take a pass on.....

Here's a summary, just so you'll know what you missed:

And here is a suggestion for those 300 million Americans regarding the last one"

Oh Well, I can dream too, can't I?

Lord have mercy --- it's really hit bottom!

I try very hard to stay away from women's bid'ness and keep my topics on something I know something about. That is probably why I am in that exclusive Golden Wedding Club...

But I read an article this morning that just put me in stitches and I have go to share it..    it seems that political correctness and inclusivity has reached it's zenith - or maybe nadir.... I ain't sure..  but;

It has been announced that the Mount Holyoke College women's college in Massachusetts' annual production of 'The Vagina Monologues' have been cancelled this year. The twenty year run has been found to be not inclusive enough because there are women without vaginas apparently. So, lest those transgender ladies who God hung a penis on be offended - Holyoke cancelled the play this year. 

I would like to make a deep thinking statement here, something really profound..... but I can't reach the keyboard from down here on the floor laughing!!

Shots fired near Bite-Me Veeps House in Delaware..

I read with interest that last night, some shots were fired near Veep Bidens house in Delaware --  reports mentioned that apparently nobody was hit or hurt. One arrest made - they don't know if it is related....

What the report didn't tell us whether "Shot-Gun" Joltin' Joe ran out onto his balcony and started firing his shotgun in the air.......  maybe news at 11?
I guess a man's "Got to know his limitations!"

Ode to Wendy Davis (you remember, the gal that ran for Texas Gob'nor in pink sneakers!)


America may have noted Trailer Camp Wendy's campaign. The only support she got came from outside of Texas --- but not many will note that the gal that won her old State Senate Seat in Texas District 10, is a pro-life, fiscal conservative, Konni Burton, who won Wendy's old district with 60% of the vote!


Them liberal, progressive, Dims ain't turned the Red State of Texas blue just yet!!!

Crony Capitalism with a large exclamation mark!!!!!!!!!!!

Over the last few years we have heard former Gob'nor of Alaska, Sarah Palin rant about the Crony Capitalism that has taken over our gob'mint at all levels. The Lame Stream Media of course, curse her every rant - and try to paint her as some kind of right wing-bat!

But every now and then, a ray of light shines into the dim closet of such cronyism in our Capital and Halls of Congress...   this is only the latest --

It seems that poor little California Senator DI-FI (Dianne Feinstein), current worth to be estimated at $70,000,000 (million) will be able to afford milk on her cornflakes when she retires from the Senate. In addition to her accumulated wealth, and retirement perks, her husband, Richard Blum (or is that Feinstein-Blum?) was the recent recipient of a contract with the USPS to sell 56 of their buildings .......  the sale of which will bring Mr Feinstein-Blum's real estate firm a way cool $1,000,000,000 (billion) dollars in commissions. 

Isn't that lucky for him? Three hundred and twenty million folks in this country, about two million licensed real estate brokers/agents - and out of this giant hat the name of Mr Richard Feinstein-Blum was plucked for this plum billion dollar deal. 

What luck!

Best Cartoon of the week.......... no comment needed!

It's been a long week..............

Early on this Friday morning, I saw on the television that ISIS has decided that Democracy ain't such a bad thing after all!

That Obamanation is a true patriot and Michelle is proud to be an American.

Then I opened my paper and noted that Speaker Boehner does indeed, have a spine...  and will listen to the freshmen conservatives in the House.

That Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the POTUS have reached an agreement to cut next years budget by ten percent and start decreasing the deficit. 

I went to my computer and the Drudge report linked me to a story that all able bodied Americans that are drawing welfare will start performing community service to earn it. 

That everybody in this country that entered it illegally have decided to return to their homelands and apply for immigration in a legal and lawful manner. 

That our national rate of inflation is only the 1.8% that the BLS says it is - and my hamburger has gone back down to $2 per pound. 

And then -- ..................AND THEN ......     I woke up......!!
I think I'll go back to sleep and all those nice dreams!

State of the Union Address --- or Christmas Tree Wish List.....

Now that it's become obvious what the Community Organizer currently occupying the Oval Office is up to --- look for a State of the Union address that looks like Tiny Tim's wish list for Santa!

POTUS with the TOTUS
For the last four years - while Obamanation's Veto pen, aka Dingy Harry, handled all the no's by sitting on them -- (345 bills I think?) Obie hisself has been call the GOP  the party of no -- the block to government progress..  

But now, with the GOP owning both Houses and the Bills about to start piling up in his in-basket (which he will veto) -- BO needs a side show to steer folks attention away from hisself!  Thus, we are seeing virtual drooling of happy programs spewed by the POTUS.

FREE COLLEGE - He knows we can ill afford another $60 billion dollar giveaway but it sounds good and when the grown-ups in the Congress say no--- he'll be on his soap box about those evil tightfisted Republicans.

*an aside here - are you aware that college tuitions have grown by 1000% (yes thousand percent) since '78.... nothing else approaches that.  What do you think will happen to tuitions when gob'mint starts throwing another sixty billion tax bucks a year into the pot?

Mandatory Paid Six Week Parental family time (he doesn't even call it maternity leave -- hell, let private companies foot the bill for both Moms and Dads (and Moms #2 or Dads #2) ... WTH - it ain't his money.  Again, wiser heads will prevail -and again BO-no will point his accusatory finger at the GOP....

And so it will go -- take pen & pad in hand when you watch the SOTU address and keep a running tally -- he's running short of time...and getting desperate. That is, of course, unless you have something better to do with your time that evening - like darning socks, or reading a good book...

Personally, I'll wait for the Cliff Notes and ledgers to show up the next day -- it's much less painful than watch the Red frocked Shiela Jacksons and Ditzy Botox Nancy's sucking up to him and Moochelle Antoinette.....

A 'Hump Day' question .. to ponder.. or more?

There was a well attended movie (that I didn't see) a few years ago entitled, "Barbarians at the Gate".  It's plot concerned unfriendly corporate take-overs in the United States I am told.

'We will fly the Black Flag of ISIS
over the White House!!!'
Very little research on my part after the Islamic terrorist murders in Paris last week led me to the fact that there are 1.570,000,000 (BILLION) adherents to the Islamic faith in the world --- that there are 49 nations which are predominately Islamic.    Thus, my question--

With this many Barbarians at the gates of the free world and our nation - Why is the Community Organizer currently occupying the Oval Office concerned about tuition rates in community colleges? Why is his EPA concerned with carbon footprints and coal burning for energy. Why is the State Department concerned about one new oil pipeline when we already have thousands of miles of provably safe oil pipelines? Why is the Department of Education concerned about pushing their Common Core curricula down the throats of the fifty States? Why is the FLOTUS concerned about the availability of Jello in school cafeterias?

Oh wait - I cheated - that's more than one question....... sorry, let me rephrase it:

With 1.57 billion Islamic adherents bent on destroying our country and our way of life, why isn't OUR gob'mint concentrating on that problem?  

Is that better?

I am reminded of a very cogent expression from my youth -- "DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HUNTING FOR MICE WHEN THERE ARE ELEPHANTS STAMPEDING IN THE AREA!"


With the fiasco of Obamanation's (not) handling the Paris situation........

there were a million great editorial cartoons to choose from....   The PecozBill First Prize goes to.......................... Lisa Benson!!

Well done, Lisa!

Unsolicited advice for the GOP debate organizers.

Every four years, the GOP lines up the usual suspects, plus a couple of newbies, form their circular firing squads, and let the shooting begin.  They totally ignore Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment and provide the fodder for the Dims to use during the final campaign against the eventual GOP nominee.

That's just mistake number one - number two is they turn control of their debates over to their mortal enemies -- the MSM!  To ABC, to CNN, yee gads, even to NBC! 

The Republican National Committee should write their own rules on the debates. 

1. Establish the number of debates to be held and the approximate dates.
2. Establish the minimum standards in which candidates get to participate.
3. Establish the format of the debate, allowing time for debate... you know, as in give and take... not two minute canned responses to one minute barbs.
4. Decide on the city, the venue AND THE MODERATOR(S) .  Yes, you read that right..... why let some established anti-conservative - anti-Republican moderate at conversation between GOP Nominees?
5. Then, with the package put together, let the Debates go out for bid to the various networks and cable news networks for the right to air them.  TV production time is very expensive - they should be willing to sign a nice check to the RNC for the hour or two hours of broadcast programming. 

Republicans are supposed to be bid'ness people.... why not conduct these debates like a bid'ness venture?  Instead of GOP assassins like Candy Crowley, or Andrea Mitchell or (I could name almost anybody in so called broadcast journalism here), let them choose a smart, knowledgeable moderator (or panel) like Bret Bair, Megyn Kelly, Neil Cavuto, Eric Bolling, to moderate. 

And when the original ten or so candidates get whittled down to two or three, why not sit them around a table with a qualified Socratic debate moderator (with no left wing personal agenda) and really have a debate. 

And once the nominee is selected in the primaries --- why not insist on similar rules for any debates with the Dim candidate?  

Just asking.......

If the Marines are the pit bulls of our military guardians...

.... then this short video showing their response to our two most recent Presidents speaks a thousand words.... After all, Guard Dogs know friend from foe more than anybody!!!

Here is a picture you'll never see in the NY Times or on Jimmy Carter's desk!!

Israeli soldier offers aid to a mentally ill Palestinian who had been chained to the wall by Hamas!

World question of the day -- Why did Obamanation give France & the world the finger on Sunday?

One possible answer was announced today! He's still unpacking from his $10 million taxpayer dollar trip to Hawaii........... or............ because he is packing to head for Panama in April  to meet with that other world leader and head of state... El Presidente Raul Castro of Cuba!

Presidencia de Cuba @PresidenciaCuba
President of Cuba Raul Castro Ruz will meet President of US Barak Obama on April 11 in Panama.

France's multi-national solidarity march --- USA a no show!!

It is interesting to note that the American Press both LEFT and Right are piling on Obamanation's decision for America not to participate in the Solidarity March in Paris yesterday ... "Leading from behind!" "Where's Waldo" headlines scream.

But in my continuing effort to defend the Community Organizer currently occupying the Oval Office....  I must remind y'all ---

He has only 74 days left to prepare his March 26th, Sweet Sixteen NCAA choices board!  One has to have priorities, don't you know!

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Just a Sunday morning thought --

I read the headlines and story this morning that the Congress is going to have to take action this year to keep the Social Security Disability fund from drying up next year!  

Their only two choices appear to be either raise the Social Security tax on workers and employers again - or -- siphon off funds from the SS Retirement fund that folks have paid into all their life!

A third possibility was floated by the conservatives, but quickly shot down by the liberal Dims --- a twenty percent cut in disability insurance payments. 

I would suggest a 4th option -- A gob'mint review of every physical exam for every Limpin' Louie or Louise that jumped on the SS Disability bandwagon when their unemployment pay ran out in the last five years....   It's purely amazing how disabled folks got when their job search ended. Ain't no way they are gonna risk that free money by looking for a job now that bid'ness is picking up again. 

Check out this chart --- speaks a lot louder than I do!!!!

Anybody notice a relationship in this graph?

In case you missed it.......

Front Page Magazine  has a very succinct and very pointed article today...

Leftists Vandalize Paper for Calling Illegal Aliens, "Illegal"

It’s not just Muslims who are offended by hearing the truth.
A California newspaper will continue to use the term “illegals” to describe people who enter the U.S. without permission, despite an attack on its building by vandals believed to object to the term.
The Santa Barbara News-Press’s front entrance was sprayed with the message “The border is illegal, not the people who cross it” in red paint, sometime either Wednesday night or early Thursday, according to the newspaper’s director of operations, Donald Katich. The attack came amid wider objections to a News-Press headline that used the word “illegals” alongside a story on California granting driver’s licenses to people in the country illegally. …
“It has been the practice for nearly 10 years at the Santa Barbara News-Press to describe people living in this country illegally as “illegals” regardless of their country of origin,” the statement read. “This practice is under fire by some immigration groups who believe that this term is demeaning and does not accurately reflect the status of “undocumented immigrants,” one of several terms other media use to describe people in the Unites States illegally.
“It is an appropriate term in describing someone as “illegal” if they are in this country illegally,” the statement added.
These days the dictionary is becoming controversial. How long until this is described as “Illegalphobia”?

Keeping New York City safe, one hamburger container at a time....

The SIC (Socialist in Charge) of New York City, Bill de Blasio (nee - Warren Wilhelm Jr) has managed in his first year in office to alienate the entire 50,000 man NYPD, New York's finest...
de Blasio and Mentor?

Putting crime on the fast track upward... from petty crimes to major crimes. And add motivation and speed to the many folks deciding to leave both the city of New York and Cuomo's state of the same name!   Last year Cuomo famously announced to the the conservatives residing in that great state, 'We don't need your kind around here!'   So, being brighter than the average low information voter -- they are headed for more welcoming states, and taking their businesses and wealth with them. 

But not to fear!! In a Tweet/Twitter de Blasio sent to all of his Tweet followers (wife & kids?) the strong message that after July 1st of this year, all things Styrofoam can GET OUT OF NEW YORK CITY as well!! 

Well, by golly it's good to know that 74% of the folks that voted in the last mayoral election in NY City were smart enough to elect an enemy of Styrofoam!  

The question now becomes how do they get those meals home from the corner deli to eat behind their locked, chained, bolted front doors as they cower in fear of their safety?  Brown paper bags don't work well with chicken soup and pasta salads.

He said what?

The most accurate four sentences you'll ever read!

The following was e-mailed to me by my elder (also a vet) brother in Southern Indiana -- who tells me it came to him from a very very smart 60 year old lady who sells magazine advertising for a living . He calls her a 'Great Lady'!  I'd call her a smart one!
As funny as it sounds - every word is true!

This condenses 10,535 pages of the Oboma care actin 4 sentences
!. In order to insure the uninsured we have to uninsure the insured.
2. Next, We require the newly uninsured to insure.
3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra,
    charges to be re-insured.
4. The extra charges are required so that the originally insured, who became insured, and became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured, which will be of charge to them.

My comment - Only in America!! Feel free to pass this on!
