I was taught as a child to be careful who I criticize.  It may be some of the best advice I ever had since the best course to take when dissatisfied with someone is to let them hang themselves.  That is what I try to do at the national level since we have Obama as a president who seems determined to hang himself.

A good example happened recently as Obama chose to do the ad hominem thing on Mitt Romney.   He said that Bain Capital and Romney were “vampires preying on American workers in their pursuit of personal profit.”  It’s the same old story that is always used when one is failing and the only avenue left open is a personal attack on his challenger.  That type of campaigning is usually a turnoff to intelligent voters which was the case this time. 

To make matters worse for the prez, several leading Democrats chimed in to support the work Governor Romney did during his Bain Capital years.  Prestigious Democrats like Ed Rendell, Cory Booker, Bill Clinton, Former House Rep Thomas Ford, and Senator Mark Warner represent those Dems who have not crossed the Rubicon into Obama’s “hate the free market” mentality.  Clinton even commented that Romney did a “sterling” job at Bain which constituted “a good business career.”  Warner said that Bain had “done a good job for their investors.”  Booker said Obama’s attack was “nauseating to the American public.”

The funniest thing about this is that Romney has been knowledgeable and successful in business while Obama has never even had a real job so who is he to say anything about how to do business? 

Being a Republican, it is refreshing to see this rebuke of Obama by his own people.  I’m especially glad to see Clinton speak up even though he will still vote for Obama out of loyalty to his party.  But, if even half of the things written in Edward Klein’s new book about Obama (“The Amateur”) are true, Bill and Barack probably will not be exchanging Christmas cards anytime soon.


For a good read, try John Stossel’s latest book, “No, They Can’t”.  John mentions that “Government planners have failed in the Soviet Union, in Cuba, in America’s school system and the U. S. Postal Service…..What government does is make the problems worse and leave us deeper in debt.  Why don’t we ever learn?” Stossel is a Libertarian so a big national government is not his preference.  In the book his points are well taken.


Common sense cannot be taught.  Either you know how to come in from the rain or you don’t.  Here is another example:  If you work for the GSA, you probably should not park your car with a U. S. Government GSA license plate stating that the vehicle is for “OFFICIAL USE ONLY”, fifteen spaces away from the door to the Talking Stick Casino on the Salt River Pima Reservation.  I noticed this  recently and it made me wonder who is hiring these people.  What is it about the embarrassment of the GSA scandal in Las Vegas that they don’t understand?

                               Cartoon of the day:  No wonder dogs are man's best friend!

What.. a lunitic mad dog right winger like Stossel? you expect me to listen to anything written by that religious white Obama hater or the thoughts of that equally white turncoat Bill Clinton?

Sorry but it's obvious that it's white slaveholder mentalities like that that are obstructing everything the is trying to do to help us get past our racist history.

I don't remember any other president selling airplane rides or running a lottery for a chance to eat a hot dog with the leader of the free world.

Nor do I remember any former president waging war on capitalism as this brave far seeing leader has done, perhaps four years just isn't long enough to clean up the damage that GWB left once he realized a couple of months before the primaries in 2008 that he could not run a third time and set about cynically fooling Nancy Pelosi to forward bill after spending bill in an effort to.... ah hell even I can't complete this thought.

Well anyway you get my drift, and once this mistake is corrected in Wisconsin today everyone will see what true global style leadership looks like in real time- obviously this man/god is simply too big for the office.

Yessir, we are watching magic right before our eyes, not only is he schooling these political wannabe's he is using the old "Okie dokie" to do it...
"Dance like a butterfly, sting like a bee"

....hope meet change.

Jim McAllister said...

This is too funny. Obama has been hanging around with Biden too much or maybe Bon Jovi gave him some bad "stuff" while he hitched a ride on AF One:

During a speech at the New Amsterdam Theater in Times Square, the president mixed up his Republican opponent with former Michigan Governor George Romney while contrasting their economic policies.

“We are not going back to a set of policies that say you’re on your own and that’s essentially the theory of the other side. You know, George Romney,” Mr Obama said.

As the audience roared with laughter at the president's parapraxis, Mr Obama, who was not using an autocue, attempted to explain the mistake before continuing with the speech, later referring to Mitt Romney as “Governor Romney” – a title both men share.

Poor George (Mitt's father); he died in 1995 and Obama is even after him!

midnightsstaff said...

Saint Peter is sitting at the Pearly Gates when two men wearing hoodies arrive. St. Peter looks out through the Gates and says “Wait here. I will be right back.”

St. Peter goes over to God’s chambers and tells him who is waiting at the entrance. God asks Peter: “How many times do I have to tell you, you can’t be judgmental about their attire? This is heaven. All are loved. All are brothers. Go back and let them in!”

St. Peter goes back to Heaven’s entrance, looks around, and lets out a heavy sigh. He returns to God’s chambers and says “Well, they’re gone.”

The guys wearing hoodies?” asks God.

“No. The Pearly Gates.”

Well, we are talking about the president aren't we?- this seems appropriate.

Mike Slater said...

Even some Democrats have sense when it comes to capitalism. Obama doesn't. He's nothing more than a socialist who wants to redistribute the wealth.
He's the modern day Robin Hood.

We must defeat Obama and elect a Republican senate because in the next 4 years 1 or 2 Supreme Court Judges will probably retire and we need to replace them with conservative judges.

steve buzzardo said...

this is how I feel before a Packers game, I expect them to win but Im still very nervous.

GO WALKER! this is a must win

midnightsstaff said...

Well quit watching the Packer cheerleaders... er.. nevermind.

Nothing to do but trust in the force now Buzz- so trust...
I only wish that the "Gratestate" of Mexifornia would get a dose of what the taxpayers of Wisconsin got last year, going from a actual budget deficit of 3.5 billion dollars to a surplus now, or having unemployment near ten percent now down to the mid 6's.
But Moonbeam is a big a fool as he was when he sold the state down the river in the seventies and he won't stop until reality stops him.

Either way liberalism and big government bloat has worn out it's welcome with the average JSP and his therapist.

midnightsstaff said...

Sorry I forgot my hat..

..looks like the little bitch has problems with Bill Clinton again, now Bill is saying the Bush Tax cut should stay... haha.
not only that but it looks like the exit polls are Walker.
all we need now is Barry soaped up, barricading himself in a cell with a broken off mop handle in a standoff this November vowing never to be taken alive- we're going to have to smoke him out.

haha.. told ya this was going to be a great summer except for that depression.

Jim McAllister said...

From: Larry

I'm of the opinion that Democrat or not, Bill C would take pleasure in personally cutting off Barry's cajones.
As for GSA ee's, they are civil service protected, no? So what impetus do they have for behaving differently?

Jim McAllister said...


I agree. This is one of the most important elections in history this year. Do we continue to let a socialist ruin what America is all about or do we dump Obama and get back to private enterprise ideals and shrink the national government.

If Obama wins, we have no chance of ever seeing the US we loved and grew up with where people had respect and understood the importance of work without government interference, out of control welfare, and a multitude of regulations.

I'll admit it: I miss white picket fence America.

You're right about the SC. Those guys are getting up there and we need a Republican in there when they retire.

Jim McAllister said...


I just heard that the exit polls show Walker up about 52-47. The pre election polls had him ahead too.

Cross your fingers. This is a killer for the Dems if Walker wins.

This whole recall crap is just that from a bunch of sour grapes losers. If a guy wins, he shouldn't have to go the recall garbage. His opposition can wait until the next regulation election.

Jim McAllister said...


Brown should bring back that lovely Linda Ronstadt too. LOL I can't believe California.

Jim McAllister said...


Yeah, Clinton has been a bit helpful as are those other guys.

Booker chickened out and reversed himself when they got to him but it was too late. He meant what he said and we know it.

I love seeing the Dems piling on Barry; I hope they keep it up. A lot of those guys like Clinton and Rendell aren't stupid. They know Obama is a fraud.

midnightsstaff said...

Linda has been elbow deep into the fried chicken bucket for a while... she might not be what you remember... more roller skates.

Hey... these Madison hairballs look every bit as zany as the Calif. hairballs- really looks like a beautiful state... except for the nuts.

Cavuto is arguing with some commie right now... I bet the capitol building gets trashed tonight... haha- they keep showing that bus out of a Who video cruising around, wonder how long it will take the locals to pull them over and give it a safety check.
probably not now that I think about it, the street cops are union thugs as well.

midnightsstaff said...

You might keep in mind that fat ass Christie just signed a bill that fines drivers a grand for not having Fido buckled up...

"lay hands on no man quickly"

Jim McAllister said...


The last time I saw Ronstadt she was being canned by the Aladdin Hotel in Vegas for shooting off her big mouth at an audience. I think she weighs about 300 lbs now and is as obnoxious as ever.

It was a great win for Walker and although Obama will probably still take Wisconsin, it may have woke a few people up in other places and got Romney some votes.

The pendulum is starting to swing back.

Jim McAllister said...


"Fat ass" Christie? LOL

When I see people driving with their dogs on their lap and in their face, I have to agree with Christie. But, that law will not be heeded just like laws against texting are ignored.

midnightsstaff said...

Did you happen to hear the speech he gave? instead of telling the unions "I won you lost" like that criminal in the White House did to John worthless, he actually promised to let things be finished at the election as to not further inflame an already polarized citizenry..

That was pure statesmanship for a thirty four year old, he is going to go far to clean up the brand of the GOP from being merely the junior varsity team for socialism.

Scott Walker appears to be the very antithesis to the open sore Obama.

Scott cares for his constituency Obama hates his..

Scott first thing thanked God.

Scott is a leader and can successfully look outside the box for solutions rather than settling for merely agenda victory.

Scott makes promises and keeps them.
Obama.. everything is a lie.

Mitt better cancel breakfast and get his sorry butt in Madison and try to get some good karma off this winner, I'm hoping that Obama signs his resignation, throws the keys to Joe in the morning and tells him "better get after it white boy, this is your big chance"...

Biden is an absolute fool but has some patriotism left- and even though you couldn't say it about any other president in my lifetime but with this sorry excuse for a president, Joe would be an improvement.

There is nothing I have seen in the past two years that tells me that a conservative message will be rejected by the voters, yet the media like the wizard keeps pulling those levers, and scaring the muppets with loud noises, smoke and lies and the jv squad pisses themselves and trembles in the corner.

maybe after tonight that will change.

midnightsstaff said...

as inspector Colombo would say...
"just one thing"
You think the kid is going to take this news badly, wait until he gets the bad news on SB1070 probably this month not to mention the big Kahuna of all smack downz... Obamacare...
and Eric fastandfurious Holder.
excedrin headache number ten.

Yeah, like I told you this one is going to be a regular Marx bros cartoon by mid July.
na. I don't like Christie nor Mitch Daniels..
I got my reasons.

Jim McAllister said...


Good analogies. I think Scott Walker gave a great speech.

Obama is angry and reprehensible besides being out of his league.

Let's hope tonight is a good kickoff to success in November.

I just hope we can keep Obama's thugs from drugging Romney and throwing him in bed with some whore for a photo op! LOL

Jim McAllister said...


I hope you are right about 1070.

What do you think of the shoving battle between Axelrod and Holder the other day? That had to be pretty funny. I wonder if either broke a finger nail.

steve buzzardo said...

nice to see someone make a speech and not look like an idiot in front of a teleprompter

yes, its a great day for America and real Americans..

bad day for communists, socialists, marxists and all of the other assorted leftist scumbags

too bad we cant recall Obozo now and not have to wait till November

midnightsstaff said...

The weasel ought to stage a HBO main event with those two metrosexuals- make that crazy bastard Timmy Geitner referee the event.
..hell I'd even pony up something to the reelect Obama fund to watch these pussy's whack away at each other for a few rounds because this election has nothing to do about money anymore, people are genuinely sick of the 'dog ate my homework' caliber of leadership - god help us if we do actually have a true crisis before this jackwad is frogmarched off the stage.

Do I sound bitter and skeptical?- hell my attitude is nothing compared to what a lot of people have been living for the last couple of 'summer of recoveries', hell I have skated pretty much unscathed as far as how bad it has been for way too many decent people just trying to live a normal life and raise a family.
Hell this nation is not a bunch of redneck inbred racists - that is soooo 2008.. and that's all you hear from these actual racists like Eric fastandfurious Holder...
But what do I see but a bunch of spoiled hypocrits down there protesting someone who is doing them the biggest favor of their wretched existence..
This guy should have been given a medal for what he has accomplished but what does evil do instead?
I give up entirely on a sector of this nation, they can't be reasoned with and their too stupid to refuse designing and then building their own gallows.

midnightsstaff said...

Whoa... got a little carried away last night- full moon I guess.
anyway now that't behind us, ya got a point about a lot of big name dems not impressed with the one and coming out in public now with some concerns..
This has to shake the democrats to the core, of course the socialists will ignore and continue as though nothing happened.

I think Bill Clinton is the traitor's worst enemy right now, he came out in support of the Bush tax cuts on top of pointing out in public how Romney did a pretty good idea at Bain..
probably a little buyers remorse really setting in now, there should be a complete repudiation of liberalism this year all across the globe, I think we will see the second installment in a few months.

About that use of gvt. cars at the casino...
hey their collective bargaining contract covers that.
don't get too excited- first things first..

Jim McAllister said...


Yes, it was nice to see a guy with class who is a genuine public speaker who doesn't need a prompter.

His message was great too and it really put a snag in the union ideology. Walker has done a good job and got Wisconsin out of an outrageous debt into a surplus.

This whole recall thing is bullshit. It's just like here where they recalled Pearce and people like Paula P. and her buddy Randy whoever who want to go after Arpaio next. They are losers and poor losers at that.

Walker stuck it to the unions in Wisconsin and it was beautiful.

Jim McAllister said...


As always you never get to the point! Some day I wish you would tell us your true feelings! LOL, LOL

Of course, in reality you hit the nail on the head.

I'm disappointed in this country for electing a guy in the first place who would seal his credentials and not offer up his birth certificate. I am not saying I am a "birther" but I do wonder why someone who claims to be a legitimate citizen would not show a "real" birth certificate with the footprint, parent's signature, and other details. It's usually a microfiche document that all of us have. That thing he showed could have been printed at a FedEx store.

On top of that he has done nothing to warrant a second term yet he still has his supporters. It's hard to believe that Americans can be sucked in so easily. I'm disappointed in them although when I see some of these people it's not hard to see why the average IQ in this country has dropped.

At least part one of my four goals came true last night with Governor Walker winning his recall election which should have never happened in the first place. I hope the ones who cost the state a fortune to pull that off are happy now as Barrett goes back to being Mayor of Milwaukee.

My second and third items on the list are the SC supporting SB1070 and Obamacare getting dumped. Number four is the biggie: the dumping of Obama. If that happens, I will always remember 2012 as the year America wised up.

Jim McAllister said...


It's funny because Clinton is appearing at campaign rallies with Obama even though he dissed him big with he Bain comments. I think Bill just likes to dust off the saxophone now and then for a little "Melancholy Baby" in remembrance of his 1992 campaign.

One would think voters would look at the debt and Europe and get a clue about liberalism and its failures but I guess the allure of getting something for nothing for 99 weeks or longer is just to strong a potion. Especially if it means taking something away from those mean rich people who dare to be successful.

I remember what Charles Barkley once said to his family.

He told them he was a Republican to which they replied, "What? All Republicans care about is rich people!" Charles replied, "Hey! I'm rich!"

midnightsstaff said...

Just catching up with the trading today and it looks like a pretty good day for especially the semiconductors... and that is key to having a healthy market, we are still in a bear but something juiced the market today... probably another QE rumor...
Hope we can string together a few good trading days and let gold settle for a week or two..

One of the problems is we have a lotto mentality in America today, people have no patience to work and save anymore, they have to have some immediate gratification or they lose interest- most have given up on ever having enough to retire so they head down to the liquor store with their lucky numbers and five kids in tow.

ya can't win if you don't play..

Playing the stock market the past year with all the algorithm fueled high frequency trading going on is like going to the casino and playing your lucky slot...
Somedays it's good somedays not but at least unlike the average gambler you can say you have a plan for retirement watching those numbered balls pop out of a cage... no such chance in the stock markets any longer.

that was pretty bad eh?- yeah... don't say it.
waiting for the moon to rise.

Jim McAllister said...

I remember when saving was automatic with most people. No one would buy anything of value like a car without saving for it. people used to brag about "paying cash" or "saving for a rainy day." There wasn't the "I gotta have it now" mentality where they gave it back because they couldn't keep up the payments then would say the hell with it.

Class and integrity are pretty much items from the past now.

steve buzzardo said...

I know that libs are pretty stupid but some of the lib comments from last night really take the cake. Like the moron who said that this is the end of democracy in America that its all over now.

and that Schultz guy on MSNBC was almost crying talking about the poor union scumbags losing the recall.

pretty funny stuff, very entertaining. LOL

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah.. I was toggling back and forth between that stone fox with the adam's apple's show and Neil Cavuto covering the results..

I was watching when Wolfie announced the end of the world and then Ed 'don'tcallmelatefordinner' Schultz after he had broke down on camera damn near choked the program director for allowing that "viscous rumor" to be announced at all... of course he composed himself long enough to predict that Scott Walker would be indicted..

they had to cut away before he did something rash...haha.

Yeah.. I guess it's Wolfe's fault...gotta blame someone..

I actually thought I had missed something and maybe it was a beheading they all just witnessed or got the news that Algore just bought their network, it was way off the charts and as a result... quite entertaining.

did I tell ya this was going to be fun? but I couldn't imagine it was going to become a contest between Obama and Biden vs. Mitt Romney and Bill Clinton..

Wild Bill's stock has risen in my portfolio, he has been doing more damage to Bathhouse Barry than a crip battle wagon does to the Compton streets every Saturday night.

Obama is an amateur and I am near neutral of my recent opinion of The Zipper..
..told you this would get strange.

Jim McAllister said...


I was comical to watch the libs crying in their beer especially Schultz. Clowns Inc..

Jim McAllister said...


I don't know whiuch is funnier: Schultz crying or Jay carney stuttering and stammering every time some one in the press asks a question.

Now Issa is after their asses again. I love it.

Good to see Clinton saying nice things about Romney and also that he thinks the Bush tax cuts should remain. I'm sure Barack is overjoyed.

Meanwhile, I'm sure Michelle is on to either her next vacation or getting involved in something important after her endorsement of small soda pop containers in new York.

Rick Kepple said...

I think it's interesting that Jim said, Important Democrats. Would that be opposed to insignificant Republicans? Or maybe Republican perfectionism?

Well, the kayak malfunctioned on the maiden voyage, but since it's Made in the USA, Bass Pro took the Ascend back and I upgraded to one with better back support. American made rocks!

midnightsstaff said...

Thaaaaasss what I been telling you!- it's the beauty of having a consumer demand driving economic decisions rather than a producer down take it or leave it economy ... not only do you get a gold star but as a bonus they want to keep you happy as a customer so it's yes sir mr. Kepple we are sorry for the inconvenience... they like you because you spend money.. it's not the snappy hat.

Competition and profit are not only the lubrication of society they are the crucial driving force of a healthy socioeconomic society and something the government has no conception of nor gives a damn. anyone?

There is no shortage of people that could drive another manufacturing based economy if government would scale it back so the private wasn't dragging not just a plow but an anvil.

There is a labor force right now that with an emphasis on freeing small business from onerous tax and mandates and lending stability to the extended overhead of running business we could have the economy humming along just as Reagan did in 1984- the year.. not the book.

We are on the verge of a petro revolution if Mitt Romney is elected because he understands the value of re capturing an industry that is not only vital for our own needs but an industry not based on service like McDonalds, but production of natural gas, petroleum and clean coal.
This is going to be low hanging fruit for a guy that understands what the potential is.. right now we have a continual roadblock by the democrat party who wants to keep the issue alive much more than to ever think of allowing it to be fixed.
They depend on reliable muppets with a weakness for ice cream, but lately the muppets have been acting like hobbits and are a more formidable opponent...
the tea party will rise again.
Well this is the trifecta of full moon, the waxing, full and now waning full moon is done for another few weeks.. but the sanity of politics has no such hope- this election cycle might as well been held in San Francisco.

I have to admit.. this is as much as I have ever liked Bill Clinton since he showed up with a lunch pail one day out of the blue.

Rick Kepple said...

An anvil instead of a plow? Well, when the private sector is broke, they use what they have, Middy. And are you saying that the Democrats don't like me for my good looks, but rather for my emotional instability from years of poverty, hardship and social neglect so that I readily spend money, thereby supporting the status quo? I'm shocked. Stunned. I really did think that they liked me for my snappy hat.

Jim McAllister said...

Important Democrats? Kind of an oxymoron I guess in the case of those guys disagreeing with Obama.

Sorry about the kayak but I'm glad bass pro made good to you on the deal.

Jim McAllister said...


We are on the verge of a petro revolution if Mitt Romney is elected because he understands the value of re capturing an industry that is not only vital for our own needs but an industry not based on service like McDonalds, but production of natural gas, petroleum and clean coal.

So true. We are wasting a ton of money because buddies of Obama like Robert Redford don't like oil and gas.

Her is what Stossel has to say about energy:

"Architects like the idea of solar power but will tell you they aren't yet good for much.....I can take long, hot showers without cost or guilt.....but I have no way of knowing whether it is the sun or the supplemental propane that heats my water.....and that's all my solar panels do: heat water.....the only reason my solar hot water will pay for itself is because of the 'green' subsidies and tax credits that politicians thrust on me.....Obama giving out your money to solar panel makers like Solyndra wasn't a good deal for you either.....Everyone likes the IDEA of solar but it's not yet efficient enough to be good for much."

He says biofuels are worse as a "green" gimmick. They take millions of acres away that could be used to produce food and turn them into inefficient, tax subsidized energy production.

midnightsstaff said...

So if the answers are so evident and it really doesn't take more than intuition and common sense to see which way would be better for America, then why do we have this discussion?

Public schools have handed us a society that is incapable of making an informed decision, and it's intentional.

Let me tell you something about that kayak, first of all I doubt owning one in Cuba is lawful to begin with but even with no seat whatsoever and leaks at both ends that kayak would be headed for Florida the first new moon..

Just try complaining about something the government offers and see how far you takes months to get a new passport for instance and they demand you pay first.
Piss the president off and you will get a thorough IRS audit and probably a visit by Homeland Security as well.

'Flatline' Hugo would be both proud and envious at the level of tyranny and contempt displayed by the District of Corruption towards those they cynically have promised to serve.

Jim McAllister said...

From Stossel:

What intuition tempts us to believe: Public schools are one of the best parts of America.

What reality teaches us: Government schools are one of the worst parts of America.

Obama's stimulus gave $100 billion to K-12 education and said the money "was desperately needed to save teachers from layoffs."

In reality a Cato Institute graph shows that while cost of a K-12 education has gone up over 90% since 1970, test scores in reading, math, and science have remained stagnant

Why no improvement? Because K-12 education is a government monopoly. Monopolies don't improve.

Good points by JS.

Jim McAllister said...

Flatline Hugo? LOL

midnightsstaff said...

"Obama's stimulus gave $100 billion to K-12 education and said the money "was desperately needed to save teachers from layoffs"
Obama's stimulus gave $100 billion to K-12 teachers pensions funds- and said the money "was desperately needed to save teachers from layoffs"- fixed.
please tell John I am not trying to show him up but there is a difference...

Yeah... mike doesn't want to talk about it.

don't look now but Drudge has a screamer on how the Dim's have finally figured out what I have been saying for over a year now.

"With five months until Election Day, Barack Obama faces a grim new reality: Republicans now believe Mitt Romney can win, and Democrats believe Obama can lose" ...

shocking... simply shocking I tell ya.

maybe I ought to offer some counseling service for these idiots who due to self inflicted blindness couldn't tell you from which direction the sun rises.
Mitt is starting to look like he may not wait for the election to move in the WH.. he is hitting it out of the park going after this communist devotee of the Cloward Piven strategy for wasting time on Obamacare after holding us hostage over the Porkulus bill and then after getting the money to slush away, ignored the economy and wasted our time making sure Health Care is destroyed.

There is so much low hanging fruit.. (no pun intended on this Chicago bathhouse bimbo) that we might end up with a super mandate that would allow everything Zer0 has touched to be fair game for reversal.
He is a pretty good campaigner.

Yeah...last pic I saw of Hugo he was blowing up like a dead frog, organs start shutting down in these cases- soon he will be in hell with the rest of the room temperature dictators and we can celebrate accordingly.

Who knows maybe Ted Kennedy by now will be on Hell's Senate so Hugo will have someone to bribe.

Jim McAllister said...

President Obama's problem now isn't what Wisconsin did, it's how he looks each day—careening around, always in flight, a superfluous figure. No one even looks to him for leadership now. He doesn't go to Wisconsin, where the fight is. He goes to Sarah Jessica Parker's place, where the money is.

Schools are addicted to the testing that gives them the funding. It's a numbers game. A child factory. Get those kids through the grades, get them certified Educated and move on to the next crop.

First, government needs to stay out of parenting, except for a clean home, food on the table, basic comforts and the only TESTING that needs to be done is to determine the child's gifts and individually choose a ciriculum for each child and that will make a smarter population and more specialized too. Joseph Campbell said to follow your bliss, so why not follow that model? Sadly, there is no job for video game jockey. And kids should have a class in the history of literature including those things they used to call paper books.

midnightsstaff said...

I guess you agree with me if only subconsciously, some might call that failure on my part but I claim success.
Ever so slowly people across America are starting to wake up to the fact that no matter the amount of attention and money you pour into a bad program it will continue to be a bad program..
There was a day Rick when schools tended to what they were supposed to and let parents do what they were supposed to- somehow that condition no longer exists.

One can follow one's own bliss unless like my buddy Eddie Blackwell they are sitting in a fourth grade class in late May wondering what two years of fourth grade will feel like.
Bliss pursuit or more formerly called Creativity is something one can pursue more effectively after the rote learning part of life is accomplished..
Bill Gates became skilled in numeracy not from sitting under the apple tree musing life but rather learning his basics in that fourth grade class.

All of us admire some form of excellence in others, I enjoy the music of Dave Gilmour for instance but what I realize I am admiring is just the accumulation of countless hours of hard work and endless practice..
His music now has the freedom to follow his bliss but it would have been impossible without the dedication to the mundane first.
And that's it... I just explained life to you Rick..

The beauty of learning those lessons on principle is once learned they usually transfer from theoretical academic lesson to real life.
But if you have an intentionally stunted and ineffective curriculum where much of the precious learning time is wasted on superfluous social engineering feel good topics it robs our youth of their one and only opportunity to attain the basics..

..after all few people take algebra in their forties- and we all know it's algebra and not Stratocasters that makes the world go round.

How many people never considered the giant stone figures on Easter Island actually have buried bodies attached ...
I just read that someone with a creative mind exposed something that most people never thought about therefore never knew existed.
..the thinking that led to this revelalation and most others was not the result of studying how Heather has two mommies.

Rick Kepple said...

Oh hell, Mitt Romney pretended to be a cop in his college years to pull people over for the fun of it! His father, then Michigan governor, gave him the state police uniform to wear. Yet, Mitt Romney avoided military service with four draft deferments and he wants to be President.

Romney does represent the Republican Party and their entitlement mentality very well. We don't need his kind representing all of the people. He will destroy what's left of the United States for his own gain, but I say let's go for it. Elect Romney. Let's get to the next civil war and be done with it. If the Republicans want to start a war in this country, then they'd best just get to it! Same goes for Obama and I'm sick of the lies amongst these worthless politicians who never worked an honest day in their life!

midnightsstaff said...

Did he pull them over on his ten speed bike?- seems to me someone would need an official vehicle to complete the ruse- just how many times have you seen a cop standing on the side of the road pulling people over?

This is the type of horsedroppings we are going to have to listen to from the insane leftists for a while it appears.
It's totally due to the fact they have absolutely nothing to back a three year failure that lied about everything including his history to get a job he has no idea how to approach.

It was possible only through a massive cover up by the media to pull the wool over a large segment of illogical and frankly stupid voters that we have Wiley Coyote now trying to convince the feeble minded in the audience that Mitt not only held queers down and shaved their head, he might have done it in a troopers uniform.
Saturday night live.

Are you concerned that Barry is now lying about his political affiliation with a party in the nineties whose "central aim was to move the United States steadily closer to European Style social democracy," and working to overthrow America"
does that rise to the level of a kid having a troopers uniform with no one suggesting he did anything other than show it to a couple of impressionable kids?

na... I can see your mind working now-
.. put that chicken down!

Middy, Rick,

You guys are good today.

Rick; Middy has some good points here. First, he is right about Gilmour; one of the best and Pink Floyd wouldn't have made it big without him.

Also, if cutting some gay guy's hair or fooling around in a cop's uniform as a kid is all the opposition can come up with, it will be smooth sailing for Mitt.

At least we know where the guy comes from and that he is a brilliant businessman. I don't know about the deferments since he was only 26 when the draft was cancelled. he probably was in college.

What do we know about Obama? He keeps everything sealed up. Why is that? Could he possibly be the world's biggest phony? His actions up to now seem to reinforce that.

Middy is right about education. Schools have taken over the work of parents in raising kids. It's none of their business and all those phony professors with their patched elbow jackets should be canned.

The teacher's union could care less about kids. As former head Albert Shanker once said when asked about how much he cares about kids: "I'll care about kids when they become dues paying members of the union."

Watta guy!

I am Mitt's age, I tossed a job at Anaconda Copper that offered a national interests deferment from the draft and joined later- copper was a wartime necessity.
I am proud of my service and others who have served but hold nothing against anyone who did not serve in Vietnam or the military for that matter- are you more qualified than I am to question something he didn't do forty years ago?, maybe he was going to college to learn economic theory and a business degree, did you realize that college enrollment or marriage was a free pass from the draft in the sixties? also brothers could not serve in combat operations at the same time... which always struck me as an oddity of military reasoning.

I did what I did for my reasons, everyone else did what they did for their own reasons.. I am the exact guy you think that should be pissed are you telling me I should walk around with a chip on my shoulder for my entire lifetime over something that has absolutely no bearing over today's problems?

The house is on fire, should we call the fire dept or the insurance agent and try to get a policy on credit?

priorities Rick... priorities.

Jim McAllister said...


I'm with ya. I might have been able to get out of it but I figured, what the hell: If my dumb ass worthless brother could make it through the AF, so could I.

As it turned out, I outranked him at discharge and now, all these years later, I remember those military days with great fondness.

Getting rid of the draft was one of the worst things this country has ever done. You can always tell an ex-military man by the way he carries himself and his ideas of respect.

You, me, and Rick can say we all have at least one thing in common: We all served.

midnightsstaff said...

Maybe... I give you Colin Powell..
Respect? a traitorous bastard if I ever saw one-naaah... there are a few bad apples in every barrel.

Good day at the market today- the semiconductors were good, time was bought for the weekend at least, maybe there is no reality left at that level..

Leverage has brought us to the point of destruction and it's more leverage that can rescue us.
..did I read that right?

Rick Kepple said...

Mitt Romney having a cop uniform in college and ducking out of the military draft goes to his leadership abilities, as well as the fact that impersonating a cop is all about CONTROL.

Maybe you have this notion that he's gonna make you wealthier. If Romney really does crave control, he's our worst nightmare. He would be the commander of the military and FBI.

What makes you think that you even rank high enough for him to care about you? George W. completely ignored the experts. Just imagine a control freak in the White House following Obama.

I sure did like that kayak, but the seat broke and I exchanged it for a fishing kayak. The Branson widow isn't going to work out since the rock star adventure proved that people simply can't be trusted. I'm better off living in the forest and retired. I'll make do when Romney takes over and ignores the American people to be leader of the free world. Control freaks don't want just a tiny bit of power. They want it all.

Rick Kepple said...

And if President Obama is re-elected ... fishing kayak. Hey, beans are good to eat and I can always hunt from a kayak too.

It's kind of strange how bailouts were given to the richest of Americans, fear is used and Walmart is selling assault weapons, defense training is in style and it's almost as if there is a covert plan to make American citizens into the last line of defense.

If so many nations are against our nation, it would make sense to develop a strategy to use the money of our enemies to build up our strength and prepare for an eventual invasion.

Sadly, anyone defending themselves against minority invaders might be arrested for racial profiling. We are so screwed.

midnightsstaff said...

"What makes you think that you even rank high enough for him to care about you? George W. completely ignored the experts. Just imagine a control freak in the White House following Obama"

Which was followed by:

"The Branson widow isn't going to work out since the rock star adventure proved that people simply can't be trusted"

I wonder if you are serious about these gems you throw out for us to contemplate. I guess if you can't see it, it doesn't exist.
I'm sorry your love life isn't working out but really why should you be any different than the rest of us? time to change your model...
After all, there are plenty of rich poodles out there even in Missouri just waiting to be walked.
hence the term.. "walkin' the poodle" Rick I along with millions of other rational people are going to vote for anyone but Satan, I'm not asking him to marry me..
Our minds were made up three and a half years ago and nothing including his college days antics will change it. at this point you could exhume Dick Nixon and he would get my vote...the only ones left in this hellish White House's car are the freeshitarmy and the parasite bureaucrats who realize they will be culled next February..
it's that simple.

Jim McAllister said...

Sorry Rick but I have to agree with Middy's last comment.

Obama is out of gas and he looks it. Those tapes this week showing him with Clinton gave the look of a guy who's head is spinning in confusion and his comments yesterday about the private sector being fine, then later retracting it, show he is not really sure what the hell he is talking about.

Maybe he needs to see George Clooney for some advice and set up another fundraiser while he is at it.

steve buzzardo said...

comments yesterday about the private sector being fine, - Obama

thats pretty funny, I remember when McCain said the same thing 4 years ago.

Jim, did you check out that video link that Middy posted? you gotta see it

Jim McAllister said...


I've tried several times but it says it can't be validated.

Yeah, Obama looked pretty stupid with his statement then retracting it later. But, what else would we expect from him?

midnightsstaff said...

Oh... it's valid, the guy playing Hitler is an actor... if that's not valid then nothing is valid.
I found another one that I think is better..

but I'll try it again.

best line is either "he can't get an umbrella through a gate" or " the simpering bumblefuck can't even answer the phone without a teleprompter"

great stuff this!!

Caligula: Do you think I'm mad?
Claudius: Mad?
Caligula: Yes, sometimes I think that I'm going mad. Do you - be honest with me - has that thought ever crossed your mind?
Claudius: Never. Never. The idea is preposterous. You set the standard of sanity for the whole world.

"the private sector is doing just fine" said the One termer in Chief. mark yesterday down as the moment in history that ZerO000 called the moving van.

Stossel seems to think cultural issues are improving or at least not deteriorating, maybe I am looking at the wrong end of the dog...
But I gotta tell ya, I get the willies when I hear John Bolton in full throated jingoistic fervor sometimes...
because he could end up the next Sec. of State and that ought to sober anyone up.

It was fun to watch him pull that passive aggressive act of his on Pat Buchannan.. haha..
Pat is really getting predictable and John just really got under his skin.

Jim McAllister said...

They came through that time; that guy does a great Hitler

Rick Kepple said...

Middy is comparing Obama to satan and he's gonna vote for Romney instead. What's the difference? None.

Thankfully, God protects me and I don't worry. Rich or poor, when people screw with me, they wind up regretting it. Praise God for that!

Dating? Why? I've got female friends and we have good, clean fun. No concerts. No cities. No bullshit to deal with.

Rick Kepple said...

It's hot, my back hurts and I got some drug addict watching my house. Some blonde even yelled some stuff out the window with a biker looking dude driving. Then they stopped and asked if I had any goats and she was all heroined up. I couldn't understand half the stuff she was mumbling.

There's been a lot of break-in's and the cops think they are finding victims on the Internet, then looking their address up.

I'm told that it's getting worse all over. Better lock and load fellas. They'll kick in your door or come through the window to get what you got and they want for their drugs.

midnightsstaff said...

Is paranoia merely a deeper level of otherwise healthy concern?

.. yeah I have been thinking about that Stossel segment, he has a point that maybe statistically things are no worse perhaps better than a few years ago.. but it' sort of like these polls that were gospel just a year or so ago now are being questioned to their fundamental value or if they have any value at all, polls evidently can be interpolated to say what they want the pollster to say.
Maybe the statistics don't point to more criminal behavior but I don't remember cannibals running loose or black fools killing whites for retribution over someone they don't know.. that is normal inner city behavior over matters of disrespect or robbery or something similar.

Joe Stalin said,"it doesn't matter who votes, what matters is who counts the votes"
Candidate Obama doesn't seem to be too concerned about pissing on the Democrat core voting blocks, he has alienated the Catholics, women, young voters, Wall Street, the unions, and now I hear even the idiot Jewish vote is down ten percent..
This could be bad news because he has absolutely no intention on running a traditional campaign designed to convince voters.. he is looking to steal the election by one way or the other, he realizes he has nothing to run on nor does he have any experience in running a campaign as an incumbent, this is his first rodeo and he really doesn't know what to do in running in an honest election.

A cornered rat will become more cunning and will simply not give up even when it becomes evident all is lost, I imagine that ZerObama is back up to a couple of packs a day by now, he hasn't had anything good happen since he as point/iceman pulled the trigger himself on OBL proving never send a boy to do a man's job.

We all remember that circus catch we might have made or a game winning double or some embellished fetish we hold onto for all of our lives.. OBL was his buzzer beating three pointer, he is looking down the barrel of defeat and searching desperately for something, some circus catch he can do to reestablish himself as relevant, watch out for another kill shot of some sort or another.
If that bastard Paneta hadn't blown it he could have maybe gotten his one claim to fame closer to the election..

We have a potentially dangerous animal running this nation, and the worst part is the professionals across the globe realize how easy he will be for the next few months, outside of killing a few muslims with drones he will just have to face life's bitter disappointments by sucking on a Newport menthol.

But back to Rick...

Jim McAllister said...


You're right a lot of violence with black gangs attacking whites and we know it is mainly because of Trayvon.

I'm sure that was the situation with that poor girl Domino's driver.

I see big trouble this summer. That sort of thing is just going to whip people into a frenzy who have had enough of this nonsense.

If someone told me 30 years ago that I would be carrying a .38 with me everywhere I go, I would have thought they were crazy. Now I'm beginning to wonder if it is enough.

midnightsstaff said...

Ya know Jimmy it looks like we could learn a thing or two from 'ol Rick here, and I want to start off by saying I think Rick ought to get a little more than mere gratitude for rescuing these young gals, talk is cheap but we all know that talk don't pay the rent...

As far as I can see he has been running a non profit benefit for too damn long for the great state of Missouri at the Rick Kepple Memorial Rescue Ranch for battered and childless women.
Times being hard at best and at what has to be a sizable financial expense that I'm pretty sure the community should share part of the load he should be paid for this service- no one can argue that!

I think his operation might benefit with some sound legal counsel so he can apply for some of that federally backed local stimulus grant monies that's sure to be tossed around in an election year, you know that cash straight outta Obama's stash so he can continue to offer the local ladies at least a roof over their head even tho it might only be for a night...

And by the way I can sympathize completely having been a bachelor myself for quite some time now and feel it's only right to give a standing ovation to his persistence.
bravo... well played and how much better if you could get paid.

Well Rick it's been splendid spending some time in your neck of the woods again, but I gotta hit the road back to where we shoot it out most every day in the streets according to Jim, after all it's tougher than you think out here in the mean streets of the cuatro ocho cero and the seis dos tres now that singer has abandoned us again..
