Teddy Float

Dedicated to Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy.
(Click to hugificate)






















Is this in poor taste?

Of course it is.
But then, no one has ever accused me of being tasteful or tactful.

Culture of corruption, indeed.

The text of the ad follows:


If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he’d be President today.

It floats.
The way our body is built, we’d be surprised if it didn’t.

The sheet of flat steel that goes underneath every Volkswagen keeps out water, as well as dirt and salt and other nasty things that can eat away at the underside of a car. So it’s watertight at the bottom.

And everybody knows it’s easier to shut the door on a Volkswagen after you’ve rolled down the window a little. That proves it’s practically airtight on the top.

If it was a boat, we could call it the Water Bug.

But it’s not a boat, it’s a car.

And, like Mary Jo Kopechne, it’s only 00 and 44/100 percent pure.

So it won’t stay afloat forever. Just long enough.

Poor Teddy.

If he’d been smart enough to buy a Volkswagen, he never would have gotten into hot water.
Maybe we can have a Robert Byrd commercial selling sheets for Sears next.

Thanksgiving Day Weekend.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
Thanks to all of you who stopped by, and back at ya!

Here is a short (and not all-inclusive) list of things I am thankful for:

Our Lord and Saviour, without whom this list wouldn't have been possible.













My family, both local and remote.
What else can I say, except how much I love them. (Thiiiiiiiiiisssss much!!!).

I just wish we were as normal as the family in the picture...
(I'm kidding!! Everyone in my family is almost every bit as normal as I am.
And that's good, right?)















My country.
God Bless the U.S.















John Moses Browning. Gunmaster extraordinaire. Genius.

















Friends. God love 'em.
And friends that have full-auto weapons they let me shoot too!!
YEE-HAW!!!




















(Target peppered with a genuine Sten in 9mm, as well as with a sweet H and R Reising Model 50 in 45 ACP. I'm bringing the camera next time to get some pictures of them!)

And let me also mention that I am thankful to all of you who come here and abuse yourselves with my ramblings.
Thanks bunches!!

Hope all of you had a safe and happy holiday.

Conservatives Are More Generous

Not terribly surprising, as we already know that red states are more generous than blue states when it comes to charity...

Philanthropy Expert: Conservatives Are More Generous
By Frank Brieaddy
Religion News Service

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse University professor Arthur C. Brooks is about to become the darling of the religious right in America -- and it's making him nervous.

The child of academics, raised in a liberal household and educated in the liberal arts, Brooks has written a book that concludes religious conservatives donate far more money than secular liberals to all sorts of charitable activities, irrespective of income.

In the book, he cites extensive data analysis to demonstrate that values advocated by conservatives -- from church attendance and two-parent families to the Protestant work ethic and a distaste for government-funded social services -- make conservatives more generous than liberals.

His book, he says, is carefully documented to withstand the scrutiny of other academics, which he said he encourages.

The book's basic findings are that conservatives who practice religion, live in traditional nuclear families and reject the notion that the government should engage in income redistribution are the most generous Americans, by any measure.

Conversely, secular liberals who believe fervently in government entitlement programs give far less to charity. They want everyone's tax dollars to support charitable causes and are reluctant to write checks to those causes, even when governments don't provide them with enough money.

Such an attitude, he writes, not only shortchanges the nonprofits but also diminishes the positive fallout of giving, including personal health, wealth and happiness for the donor and overall economic growth.
All of this, he said, he backs up with statistical analysis.
Two points:

1. If the opposite findings were in the book, would this author be on every single news program in the country, or what?

2. Is a little unfair to say that liberals aren't particularly generous at all, as they are well known for extorting money from people (read tax-paying citizens) at the barrel of a gun, with threats of violence and imprisonment, and then dispersing it to those they wish to buy votes from.
(And before you bitch, note I didn't say Democrats - there are plenty of liberal Republicans at the trough of stolen cash.)

Yep, liberals are real generous with other peoples' cash, just not with their own.
I wonder what it feels like to be morally superior...

Ann

When she is good, she is very, very good,
and when she is bad, she is better still.

"Democrats couldn't care less if people in Indiana hate them. But if Europeans curl their lips, liberals can't look at themselves in the mirror."

and this one -

"The New York Times editorial page is like a Ouija board that has only three answers, no matter what the question. The answers are: higher taxes, more restrictions on political speech and stricter gun control." - Ann Coulter

She cracks me up.
I like Ann sometimes, because just liking her pisses off so many liberals.

Pity she doesn't have a book out that I don't already have, or I would go buy one.

Maybe a t-shirt...

The Jews In The Attic Test

I think I found a new "smell" test for laws and the role of government (in anything).
It's simple, elegant, and quite an attention grabber; it makes you think.

Perfect.

With much thanks to Joe Huffman (of "The View from North Central Idaho") for his gracious permission allowing me to use this.

To the best of my knowledge I am the originator of this test and the name I use to describe it. It first came about in 1999 while I was working with Cease Fear (Cease Fear predates The Pink Pistols by about a year although the Pink Pistols is far more successful).
We were put hand-outs in the shops in the Capital Hill area of Seattle for NRA Refuse to Be A Victim and Home Firearm Safety classes. The Capital Hill area is well known LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Trans-sexual) community in the Seattle area. Our goal was to teach people of the LGBT community how to defend themselves against people who would attack them (gay-bashings). Several of the others and I in Cease Fear were certified NRA firearms instructors and were willing to donate our time to help make their lives safer.
One of the discussions we had amongst ourselves as we walked from shop to shop was how to explain to others how important our right to keep and bear arms was to our freedom.
People tend to understand the importance of freedom of speech and the freedom of the press pretty well and some of the other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. But the Second Amendment was and is viewed as unimportant and perhaps even counterproductive by many in today's society.
I explained to the others in my little band of activists that I looked at all laws that restricted freedom with a view to the impact it would have in a worst case scenario of our government run amok.
Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death?
Although I pretty much made everything up on the spot I told them I called this test my 'Jews In The Attic Test'.
Furthermore I told them that if it fails this test no further discussion is really needed, the law must be opposed in the most vigorous manner "

Some laws that fail the test and why:

bulletGovernment mandated ID cards and the authority to demand them at any time. The oppressed class will be unable to masquerade as a member of the neutral or oppressor classes.
bulletSearches without probable cause. Imagine you are attempting to smuggle your "Jews in the attic" to a safer hiding place. If the police at the roadblock can search all vehicles then you and your precious cargo are headed to the "work camps".
bulletGovernment monopoly on medical care. This is a bit surprising -- isn't it? If it is illegal for you to pay someone for anonymous health care then how can your "Jews in the attic" receive health care?
bulletFirearm or firearm owner registration. The registration information can be used to confiscate the firearms used to protect innocent life -- as it was under the 1938 Weapons Control Act in Nazi Germany.
bulletElimination or severe restriction of anonymous financial transactions. The purchase of food and other supplies for your "Jews in the attic" would show up in the records as being excessive compared to what your needs were. Just as power consumption records are used today to catch home marijuana growers.

I continue to use this test to this day and advocate it's widespread use by others.


Joe Huffman rocks. Go check out his stuff.

And remember this test, every time you see your lawmakers plotting, and every time someone says, "there ought to be a law"...

Dear Moonbats:

Remember when you said if Bush got re-elected we would end up with a military draft?

You just forgot to tell us it was the Democrats that were going to try to pull it off.

Rep. Rangel (D-Dumbass-NY) Will Seek to Reinstate Draft

The is the second time he's brought it up.

Are the Dems for real? Or is first and second hand bong smoke messing them up?

To Avoid Confusion

Sometimes when I speak, there are questions as to what I am referring to.
Case in point -

This is a pop-tart:

















A pop-tart sings (kind of), acts (poorly) and sells images of sexuality and eroticism to underage girls after displaying an initial facade of innocence and wholesomeness to rope them and their parents in. They then becoming increasingly slutty as more dollars roll in.
They come filled with simplistic ideas of life and the universe, along with a vapid personality. Pop-tarts generally have a limited useful lifespan, and are expensive to maintain.

This (below) is a Kellogg's Pop-Tart.




















It is a warm, delicious toaster pastry, which comes filled with yummy trans-fat and a sweet fruit filling.
Mmmmmm...trans fat and fruit filling....
They have no personality, but who cares when they're so tasty! Very low maintenance.
Economical, but with a very short lifespan (gulp!)


This next picture is of a pup-tard.
(Click for hugification)




















A pup-tard is neither a hyper-sexualized "entertainer", nor a warm, tasty toaster pastry.
He is warm however, and expensive to maintain, as he likes to eat most anything.
He comes filled with love, teeth, insatiable curiosity, piss, vinegar, and oodles of personality.
High maintenance, but worth it for the protection, snuggling, and hippy/commie-biting properties.

His potential lifespan is questionable, as it is a variable that changes with inverse proportionality to his bad behavior.
Good thing he's cute and lovable.

I hope this lesson cures any confusion there might have been regarding this terminology.
My goal is your edification.

THIS SUNDAY! SUNDAY!! SUNDAY!!!




















From the National Ammo Day site:

The goals of Ammo Day:

The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!

There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that’s 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!

Let the politicians, the gun-grabbers, and the international community know that America is proud of its Right to Bear Arms and we will not be disarmed.

The gun/ammunition manufacturers have been taking the brunt of all the frivolous lawsuits brought by the gun-grabbers. These gun-grabbers are trying to put these folks out of business. Well, not if we can help it! And we CAN help it by buying ammunition on November 19!

Now make sure you buy 100 rounds of something on Sunday.
Heck, buy 1000 (or more!). Even if you don't own a gun!!

This will still help the cause, and you can always go buy a firearm on Buy a Gun Day - every April 15th (or before) - to match your ammo.

Or, you can buy some ammo, and give it to ME!!!
I promise I will put it to good use - protecting God, Family and Country. Or by shooting holes into paper or varmints.

Meijer's here I come!!

A New Direction

















(Picture shamelessly stolen from IMAO.)

I'd just like to thank all the RINO's for handing over both houses to the Dhimacratic Party and their "New Direction" for our country.

Especially here in Ohio, a special shout-out to Noe, Taft, DeWine and Voinovich.
(That would be a - me shouting "F*** you, you whiny-assed RINO-tards!!" at them - kind of shout-out.)

Now honestly, I think this picture is a little bit of an exaggeration.

Oh, I still see the car in flames, but it's wrapped around a phone-pole, instead of flying off of a bridge.

See, things aren't that bad! :)

Maybe it should be this picture, instead:
With a drunken liberal swimming away from the wheel and the cold, lifeless body of our country's economy floating shotgun.
















I hope the Dems "new direction" doesn't change the direction of taxes or gun laws or the number of terror attacks on our soil or the low interest rates or the increased federal revenues or the stock market or...

Of course, if the Republicans don't get their act together on things like immigration and trade (read industry!) and federal spending, this could be their "new direction"



















And to Mike DeWine: Good riddance, asshat.
It's going to take me 6 months to get the taste of bile out of my mouth after I voted for you.
I feel so dirty.
But I'm not doing it in '08. I'm done.
They had better run Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo.
There is no Rudy or McCain vote in my future.

Ok, now someone can call me a hate mongering Nazi in the comments!!

Thank You.













And God bless to our service people.
Hope your weekend (and a long one for some) had at least a few moments in it to remember and thank our service people for their bravery and sacrifice on Armistice and Veterans Day.
And happy birthday to the Marines, too.

And finally, thanks to the foreign troops all over the world that work with us, too!

TEXAS RULES!!!!













Texas rocks so much that they'll elect a dead Republican over a live Democrat.
Pretty smart folk, there!

Her people even kept campaigning for her!!

Texas Republicans campaign for dead candidate

And she end up kicking some ass!!
In District 29, Republican incumbent Glenda Dawson, who died on Sept. 12, won over Democrat Anthony A. Dinovo.
Dawson snagged 21,284 votes, or 60 percent, while Dinovo had 13,984 votes.


Texas...
They love guns.
Lots of wide-open spaces.
Little (if any) snow.
Low percentage of hippies.
Good hunting.
Traction Control is there.
They CAN'T have more RINO's than Ohio.
They whip on Dems (as the story above atests to).

And GM has a truck plant in Arlington, too.

Hmmmmm.....
Could it work?
Southern CUG style?

Adults Only












Dear Moonbats,

What happened to the Republicans disenfranchising/cheating/stealing/buying/Diebolding, the elections?

Or do conspiracies only apply when things don't go your way.

Also, please note that you don't see Republicans or conservatives screaming and whining about how they were robbed by the Left's malfeasance.

See, that's how the grown-ups act.
Please take note.

Ohio Election Live Blogging Update

Based on the preliminary results of the local election of candidates and passage of Ohio issues, I will issue this brusque report:

We are, apparently, f***ed.
Have a nice day.

And please send me money to help me pay my higher taxes.

More government, more taxes, more BS, more intrusions, more socialism.

To quote Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Harry movies:

Swell.

On the Up Side

















No matter what happens in the election, at least we'll be done with those *&$^#*@(@*$% commercials tomorrow.

Silver lining and all...

Prognostication.

Update: I totally forgot about blaming institutionalized racism and singling out the poor and downtrodden to cheat out of their votes!!!
I'll never make a good liberal, I guess.

Never fear, however, the Democrats won't forget these cards...

Post election:

In races that Dhimocrats win, the will say, "The people have spoken...", "mandate...", "people want progressive values (*choke*), etc.
Then, they will insert whichever KOSsatic DUmmy talking points they can get the most milage out of...
Culture of corruption, terrorist civil rights, global warming, Iraq, kitten mills, jobs, economy (?), quagmire, gas prices, spontaneous combustion, or global cooling.

In races they lose, they will (of course) play the same cards they always do -
Disen-french-fried voters, Karl Rove, Republicans bought the election, or stole the election, maybe leased the election, Diebold stole it, the voters were tricked (i.e. are stupid), voters don't understand (that whole stupid thing again), voters are sheeple (stupid anyone?) or their canidate was too conservative and a DINO.

What kind of odds can you give me?

My own opinion? Most R's that lose will lose because they have strayed from conservative values. Those values which have have gotten them elected time and again over the last decade-plus. Many of these so-called Republicans have taken pandering to a Leftist press in words and actions, to be rewarded with air time, news ink, shallow praise (ooooh!! He's a maverick!) and selective fawning, and many seem to have also become drunk with with the power given to them by US - the citizens. The taxpayers.

While I detest the thought of a Democratically controlled anything (they can't even run abortion clinics, and certainly not Congress!), I can't help but admit that some (but not all) of the Republicans troubles are of their own making.

BTW, that doesn't mean I have forgotten the leftist prism through which the R's behavior is viewed in the MSM.
Undeniably, part of the possible losses will be directly attributable to the never ending criticism of the war (and EVERYTHING ELSE) and the Republican administration.
This is always a detriment to Republicans, but the Republicans are by no means beyond reproach, either.

See you at the polls.

Pie-Hole Accidentally Discharges!!!





















(BTW, I thought the picture was appropriate this close to Halloween. Thanks to IMAO for putting it up for me to steal!!)

Re: The latest John "I said you weren't a moron before I said you were a moron" Kerry flap.

I'm glad he said what he said. Honestly.

I wish the rabid, leftist communist/socialists that have stealthily (and not so stealthily) taken over the Communist Democratic Party would be honest like this far more often.

Liberals are elitists.
And when they are honest (which is rare), they will come right out and prove it.

They believe they are more intelligent than, and morally (hahahaha!!!) superior to, the "little people"; and especially the ignorant, unwashed "red-stater type" masses.

You know the type - morons: Military people, Jeebus lovin' Christians (Dem politicians: I'm not a Christian, but I play one on TV...), red-neck gun owners, Neanderthal pro-lifers who don't subscribe to the holiest of sacraments: abortion; intolerant jerks that don't want to publicly fund the homosexual agenda for kids in pre-school through graduate school...

You get the picture.

They wish to rule us for our own ignorant good, and to fulfill their lust for power and feed the delusions of grandeur they have as the self-proclaimed saviors of humanity.

You are not good enough, trustworthy enough, and/or smart enough to make your own decisions, teach your own children, feed yourself, run your own business, or own the implements needed to defend your life, your family, your country, and your home.

They hate this country.
They are ashamed of it and its history.
They despise what it stands for.

They are the appointed/anointed gods born to recreate the greatest nation that has ever been into their own twisted Stalinist image.
They love the dark, Godless, yet seemingly (to them) utopian, image of what they long to turn this country into.
They love their vision.

They love themselves.
But they don't love you.
And they sure-as-hell don't love this country.
And when they tell you they do, they are lying to you, and maybe even to themselves as well.

And you should be fearful of them at all times; but especially when they are in power.
And even moreso when they wish to disarm you to "protect" you.

That Kerry despises the military is no surprise. It is common knowledge for anyone that cares to remember. He demonstrated that decades ago.
And he has not changed one bit since then. Of course, the MSM will jump to his defense, as they do for all prominent people who hate America.

But expensive, orchestrated spin does not change the facts.

So I'm glad Kerry has again, and continuously, shown us where liberals stand.
To liberals, the military is but a tool to use on its own citizens to enforce their will.
But never to be used to slay an enemy, or protect the nation.

There is no real defense for these stances, and that is why their handlers and defenders caterwaul and wail about conspiracies and Rovian plots whenever their true thoughts happen to occasionally leak out.
To distract from and cover and legitimize that which is unholy and traitorous and pathetic.

We are, perhaps, involved in more than one war, even now.
The war at home, with a foe more dangerous than Osama could ever be...

But wait!!

What's that?

Kerry was in Viet Nam? John F-ing Kerry?

Oh, reeeeeeeeeally?

Well then - never mind.
