Now, I don't know anything about Warren, so will not say anything bad about him. I like the English, spent three years living in that wonderful country.
Just don't be confused by imitators out there - he ain't me!
Robert Gibbs, Obama's so called press secretary, fired back like a limp noodle today -
"This is the same song and dance we've heard since literally the first day of our administration. The Vice President ... clearly had his facts on a number of things wrong."
Which of these two men would you call to service if you knew the country was in danger? 'Nuff said .....
This video has been floating around the internet for some time now, but I just got a glimpse of it. Posted here for your convenience.
Good God, it's no wonder he got elected - these morons will believe anything!

First, the incredible hypocrisy of the left, who were trying to rename ObamaCare into the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Reform Bill before his body was even cold - hoping to cash in on his passing with a little momentum for socialized health care. I have a better idea - Congress should pass the Ted Kennedy Memorial Drunk Driving Vehicular Manslaughter Mandatory Punishment Bill - this would mandate specific jail time and other punishments for those people who kill someone while driving drunk, regardless of how famous or well connected the drunk is.
Second, I have heard Kennedy referred to as many things over the past few days, but the one thing that really turned my stomach was that he was a great compromiser. Bullshit. Kennedy was the master of Northeast strongarm politics. He didn't compromise with anyone - he forced them to accept his stand, and then portrayed it as a compromise to convince the victim that they actually participated.
Third, Kennedy was the poster child for arrogant, liberal, Ivy League elitists - people who think they are so far above other folks that they don't have to follow any rules. This multi-millionaire protrayed himself as the friend of the blue collar worker - champion of organized labor - fighter for the little guy against 'the machine'... Bullshit - it was all a lie crafted to keep him in office.
I didn't like the man. I didn't like his politics. I didn't like where he wanted to take this country. Why should I pretend to fawn over his memory?

Sorry for the title folks, but people like this realy piss me off.
Meet Rep. Diane Watson (D-CA). She represents the 33rd district, downtown LA. This district is about 80% minority (how can it be a minority then?). This woman held a 'healthcare town hall' meeting yesterday evening. She did not know she was being recorded. As far as I can tell from the reports, the only reference to healthcare during the meeting was the statement that those who are opposed to it are just wanting Obama to fail. The rest of it was a mosh pit of anti-Bush, anti-Republican rhetoric meant to incite the African-American crowd. In addition, she lavishes praise on Fidel Castro, the Cuban revolution, and Cuba's health care system.
I just don't understand it. People like this, far left liberals who hate this country, are orgasmic when they discuss Communism, Socialism, and Facism. It's a tired old line, but if they hate it so much, why don't they just get the hell out?
Irregardless of how one feels about the renamings, the manner in which it was to be done would violate district policy.
Last night, the Board of Trustees voted on the proposed Sotomayor naming. Four members (two black, one white, one hispanic) voted for the renaming. Four members (two white, two hispanic) voted against. One member (black) abstained. Lacking a maority vote, the proposal failed.
The proposal for the Obama renaming was pulled from the agenda before the meeting, perhaps because the sponsors knew it wouldn't pass and wanted to avoid the embarrassment.
The trustee who was pushing the proposals immediately played the race card.
"I don't know if some of you are afraid of a strong Latino woman or not. It's so disrespectful to Hispanics in that part of Dallas." - Ron Price (who is not-hispanic, hence his improper use of Latino instead of Latina)
So, if you uphold the rules/law, and it goes against what the liberals want, you must be a racist.
This is such a good study into the mindset of the left wing kooks who are running our government. They are like children who are spoiled rotten - rules mean nothing, laws mean nothing, common sense means nothing. If they don't get what they want as soon as they want it, they start crying and screaming at the top of their lungs, and call their 'enemies' names. It would be laughably pathetic, if it weren't so serious.

We lose some of our young to a variety of causes - drunk driving, auto accidents, illness, disease, athletic accidents, etc. Each loss is devestating, but usually can be attributed to something that is understandable. If the two girls had been 5 seconds earlier, 5 seconds later, or walked 5 feet to one side, this wouldn't have happened.
I have a great deal of sympathy for the family - not only do they have to cope with the loss of their daughter, they have to try and make sense of such a senseless death. I pray that God helps them through this....
If you believe, you might want to say a prayer for the family of Leslie Denison - they need all the help they can get right now .....

Reaction from the Obama Regime has been swift:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for an immediate ban on all assault rifles, shotguns, handguns, and rifles, calling this the latest example of how the NRA has corrupted the youth of America. (Her spokesman stated that even though no firearms were used in the attack, that was irrelevant.)
Attorney General Eric Holder has announced appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Bush Administration and the CIA to determine exactly who approved CIA mind control experiments that surely caused this incident.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decried the attack as a ploy by his Republican opponent in the 2010 Senate election (who by the way is leading Reid by double digits in the polls) of sponsoring the attack to embarrass Reid, since CA is the state next door.
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) announced the formation of a special sub-committee which will, under his leadership, investigate the three teachers and principal for their use of torture in apprehending the defenseless youth.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be sent on a critical fact finding mission to New Zealand. What she is supposed to be finding out there has not been announced.
Former President Bill Clinton will be appointed Special White House Ambassador to the school, where he will conduct thorough, private interviews with all teen age girls in attendance.
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner announced a $100,000,000,000 infusion into San Francisco area school systems, along with the firing of all CFOs of those school systems and their replacement by a government appointed Czar.
CA Senator Diane Feinstein blamed the incident on CA's Republican Governornator, saying that the state's financial woes, brought on entirely by Arnold, drove the kid to the brink of insanity.
CA's other Senator, Barbara Boxer, defended the boy, stating he must have been driven to this act of protest by the illegal and immoral actions of Vice President Dick Cheney. She demanded a special session of the Senate be convened, with Republicans barred from attending, to study the situation and start impeachment (retroactive) proceedings against Cheney.
MSNBC's main political commentator, Keith Olberman, on his show last night was just seen shaking his head and muttering "That Damn Bush ..." over and over.
Vice President Joe Biden was heard asking when the kid will be invited to the White House for a beer.
President Obama the Immaculate's reaction was swift and decisive - he blamed Rush Limbaugh for bribing the kid to carry out the attack, in order to take momentum away from the Obama Health Care Reform Act ... um, oops, sorry, its now the Obama Health Insurance Reform Act ...

Update - My father was laid to rest yesterday in the DFW National Cemetary. My thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers.
Yes, he really does say that Republican members of the US Senate are out to kill Obama. He then stumbles all over himself trying to backtrack, but just succeeds in looking even more stupid. This is one of the leading voices in the Democrat Party - doesn't that make you feel good?

Update - Sorry folks - the video got pulled because of the MLB Copyright Nazis..... Apparently they think they own every little bit of America's pastime .....

The only problem is that this was support for folks protesting against President Bush, not President Obama. Once again, the left can't stand to have its own tactics used against it! Hypocrite Bitch!

The leaf blower is intended to help you clean up after your yard work, right?
The leaf blower is intended to make someone else clean up after your yard work!
The whole point is to blow your debris over onto the neighbor's yard, or out into the street - anywhere that you won't have to pick it up. That's why this is the most important piece of equipment on a landscaper's trailer - it cuts their job time tremendously, because they don't have to pick up the results of their efforts.
A few months ago, a landscaper was cutting a neighbor's yard. He had used his blower to get rid of the debris, and a large pile of clippings had ended up piled against my truck, parked on the street. I approached him, and told him he needed to clean up the mess. The look on his face was not anger, it was puzzlement - he had no concept of what I was talking about, even after I explained it to him. He finally did clean it up, by blowing it one house down from mine. Lazy bastard.
Blowing debris out into the right of way is, by the way, illegal. However, you're not going to find any cops writing tickets for it, since they've all got their own blowers in their garages.

The military version of the Gulfsream 550, designated C-37A, is just about the highest end business jet that can be bought. Although the military versions aren't decked out with the most oppulent equipment packages, they still cost about $65,000,000 apiece.
C-37s are used to transport VIPs, typically civilian government officials, around the country and the world. It is a favorite with members of Congress and the Administration, because of its luxury and long range. Each flight is catered, and served by a USAF serviceperson acting as stewardess.
The Air Force has 10 C-37s currently. Four are based at Andrews AFB, for use by members of the government. One each are based at Hickam AFB in Hawaii, and Chievres AB in Belgium (for NATO support). Three are based out of MacDill AFB in Florida (for CentCOM support), and one has been noted carrying civilian registration while operating in Southwest Asia. The Navy has 5 C-37s, used for VIP transportation at various locations.
Wording inserted into the bill authorizing funding for these aircraft specifically stipulates that they are to be based at Andrews. This, in essence, makes sure they are not used by anyone other than members of Congress or the Administration.
In addition, funding was inserted for a C-40, the military version of the 737 airliner. Also to be based at Andrews, this $70,000,000 aircraft is popular with Congress for their overseas junkets, because of its luxury and VIP sleeping areas. Congressional porkers love to pack their spouses (or mistresses) into this luxury bus for 'fact finding' junkets at tax payer expense. Again, the USAF did not request or want this aircraft.
Pelosi has been known for her tirades when these aircraft aren't avalable for her personal use. So, she has now made sure that her royal ass has one of these birds to cart it back and forth to San Francisco whenever she feels like it. How arrogant ... when Congress and the Administration are cutting critical items out of the defense budget, these assholes blow our tax dollars on this perk for themselves.
I say, let them fly coach like the rest of us poor peasants.....
Update - Pentagon and Senate opposition to this purchase is exploding. Along with Republican members of the House, Senators are lining up to voice their opposition, and it looks like the purchase will be blocked in the Senate.
"The whole thing kind of makes me sick to my stomach. It is evidence that some of the cynicism about Washington is well placed -- that people get out of touch and they spend money like it's Monopoly money." - Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in an interview Sunday (yes, a DEMOCRAT said this)
"A classic example of Congress being out of touch with the realities of deficit spending." - Sen. John Thune (R-SD)
Update II - VICTORY! American People 1, Pelosi 0. Rulers of the House concended defeat Monday as pressure about this continued to rise, agreeing to remove funding for the additional jets from the Defense bill.
This was first shown on Foxnews' "O'Reilly Factor", last night,and is spreading like widlfire across the internet.
This woman is third in line of succession to the office of President. She is speaker of the House of Representatives, a VERY powerful position. She is a key component of Democrat efforts to reform this country in their image. This is what she thinks of anyone who doesn't agree with her.
The Fairness doctrine ... Pelosi thinks anyone who doesn't agree with her is a Nazi ... Obama is gathering information on ordinary citizens that disagree with his policies ... Democrats call Obamacare protestors 'an unruly, violent mob' ... Looks to me like the Democrats are acting a lot like Nazis themselves. This is scary, folks ....
Update - The message has gone out from Obama, Pelosi, and the DNC - equate anyone who disagrees with them to Nazis ... Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) has cancelled his town hall meetings, and will instead hold a 'phone-in' meeting (which by the way, controls who is allowed to call in and ask questions). Explaining his reasoning, he said "What we're seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics. I mean that very seriously." So, if you disagree with the left, you are a Nazi, according to official Democrat doctrine. How does that make you feel, America? Your government wants to take away your right to disagree with it. Open your mouth in anything but tribute to Obama, and you're in trouble!
Update II - The Dems themselves are trying hard to build this Nazi portrayal of Republicans. A black man was photographed bringing a poster portraying Obama as Hitler into the back door of a town hall meeting, up in Detriot I think it was. The local news showed the poster, and decried the evil Rebpulican mob tactics. Someone researched that photo, and it turns out the black man was an Obama campaign worker.
I write to express my concern about a new White House program to monitor American citizens' speech opposing your health care policies, and to seek your assurances that this program is being carried out in a manner consistent with the First Amendment and America's tradition of free speech and public discourse.
I am not aware of any precedent for a President asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure political speech that is deemed "fishy" or otherwise inimical to the White House's political interests.
By requesting that citizens send "fishy" emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House. You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection program. As Congress debates health care reform and other critical policy matters, citizen engagement must not be chilled by fear of government monitoring the exercise of free speech rights.
I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward emails critical of his policies to the White House. I suspect that you would have been leading the charge in condemning such a program--and I would have been at your side denouncing such heavy-handed government action.
So I urge you to cease this program immediately. At the very least, I request that you detail to Congress and the public the protocols that your White House is following to purge the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in "fishy" speech. And I respectfully request an answer to the following:
· How do you intend to use the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in "fishy" speech?

Today, Mr. Issa sent an open letter to Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff. The letter is an open challenge to Emanuel about his attempted strongarm intimidation of Republican members of the House and Senate who are questioning the effectiveness of Obama's porkulus plan in public. Specifically, Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) raised questions about the porkulus' benefit to the economy this past Sunday on the morning TV talk shows. Following Kyl's comments, an orchestrated letter campaign was put forth by Emanuel, where the Governor of Arizona was hit by letters from multiple Cabinet Secretaries - letters of a threatening nature.
Here is a direct link to the letter, which in no uncertain terms tells Emanuel to stick his Chicago thug politics up his ass.
Thank you, Representative Issa.
Update - As of today, Aug. 14, no answer has been forthcoming from Emanuel or any of his cronies in the White House. How predictable ....

Now, all members of Congress are home for 5 weeks. They will be getting an earful from their constituents about this disaster of a bill. It has already started:
Sen. Arlen Specter (traitor) and Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius got hammered at a town hall meeting yesterday. Here is Foxnews coverage of the event:
John Boehner's office produced a TV ad that pokes fun at Obama on the subject - it's funny, but cuts to the heart of the matter:
The people of America won an important battle against this lunacy when this bill was not passed before Congress' recess. Now, we get a chance to let our reps know how we feel about it. Take this opportunity to contact your Reps and Senators - let them know what you think of Obamacare.
Update - Some video has surfaced showing Obama telling us exactly what he wants - government run healthcare. Here he's telling us exactly what his goal is, and he's backed up by some of his cronies. I hope every single American sees this.

My big beef with this program is that it doesn't cover the good cars. No Mustang ... No Camaro ... No Challenger ...
