Editorial Endorsement for President


The last U.S. president to attempt transformative social change on the scale attempted by President Barack Obama was Lyndon B. Johnson, who in 1964 launched his Great Society.

Times were different then. At the end of Johnson’s term, the national debt stood at just $353 billion, representing an annual growth rate during the five-plus years of Johnson’s presidency of just over 3 per­cent.
The nation’s debts then were under control.

Fair or not, the debt mon­ster since then has grown un­imaginably, forcing its harsh reality into every new dis­cussion about federal spend­ing.

Not counting long-term unfunded liabilities tied to Social Security and to many of those Johnson-era programs, the nation is more than $16 tril­lion in real-time debt, one of the greatest financial-debt burdens in modern history.

Our belief that Republican Mitt Romney should be elected the 45th president of the Unit­ed States is anchored in that
 tough reality. We believe the nation’s best opportunity to escape the com­pounding woes of spiraling debt and economic stagnation lies with a president who be­lieves in the free market’s capacity to heal its own wounds.

That leader is Romney. The nation’s economy now is in desperate need of the kind of jobs-creating animal spirits that President Romney would encourage.

The economy indisputably will benefit, perhaps signifi­cantly, from a flatter, fairer system of taxation along the lines proposed by Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan.

It will benefit, too, from a regulatory environment that does not smother small busi­nesses with punitive, anti­competitive, hoop-jumping requirements that favor their bigger competitors. We expect a Romney administration to foster that kind of growth ­oriented, business-friendly environment.

But, more to the point, we expect better job growth in a Romney economy mostly be­cause
 Mitt Romney does not fear or dislike a free-wheeling, growing, free-market econo­my.

We cannot say the same of President Obama.

In our judgment, the econo­my will not fully revive under Obama. Certainly not to the degree it would thrive if Wash­ington, D.C., would only get past its current “Dodd-Frank” frame of mind, its free-mar­ket- fearing sense that the terrible times will come crash­ing back if Washington lets those scalawags of the private sector loose again.

The president’s proposals for a second administration project scant hope that the
 economy will do much more than stumble forward at the current, anemic, sub-2 percent rate of growth. The 23 million Americans either unemployed, scraping by in part-time, low­paid jobs or not looking for work anymore need to see a commitment to revival. And, simply put, Obama isn’t of­fering them much. Not in his vision of the future as illus­trated in debates thus far. And certainly not in the record of his first term as president.

The reason Obama’s infa­mous “You didn’t build that” comment on July 13 in Roa­noke, Va., resonated among his political opponents wasn’t because it revealed some great secret.

It resonated because it vali­dated a suspicion that the president has done little to dismiss. He has consolidated federal power and reach in health care, banking, the auto industry and energy produc­tion. He has fostered the view that all good economic things flow from Washington.

Obama’s very first proposal to revive the economy — initi­ated in February 2009 when
 the economy was shedding more than 600,000 jobs a month — in fact was highlight­ed in large part by his plans for government-centric health-care reform. That, re­member, was when we learned how crises were too valuable to waste.

Mitt Romney, certainly, would not a perfect president make. But he is far, far re­moved from the grotesque caricature of the heartless plutocrat created by the Oba­ma campaign and its allies.

Democrats from Bill Clin­ton to Cory Booker defended Romney’s work at the much­maligned Bain Capital for a reason: because it has been financial engines like Bain that have helped power the American economy.

America needs a return to that kind of economic power, that kind of jobs-creating ener­gy.

The nation’s best chance for reviving those spirits lies with Mitt Romney.
The Arizona Republic recom­mends Mitt Romney for presi­dent of the United States.

It looks like Benson, Valdez, and Montini aren't the only ones working for the Republic!

I guess their "charge" model wasn't as popular to all the idiot liberals who support that third rate periodical... well duh. Liberals pay for anything on their own?

Only a jackass would keep Valdez, Benson, and Montini on staff and still take a monopolistic newspaper and nose dive it into the ground in the 5th largest city in the country. It really, really takes effort to fail at that.

sam said...

This appears to be a copy-cat rendition of the current Obama economic program.....we have no profits so let us attach fees to everything which might induce the readers to pay more for the same or lesser monopolistic product.
If they had a product which people could refer to with confidence of accuracy and productive information, they would not be in the hole they are in.
Why should general public pay for something advertisers back away from. The Republic is operated by, employs, and endorses those the public has little or no trust in...or even directly opposes.
What evidence exists that the Republic is not simply playing a Obama rope-a-dope.

Anonymous said...

Neo-Liberals need very much to look up and understand the duality of the term - Inevitability. There is simply no more time left to pray in the Liberal Church of – Change. This country is heading for a fiscal cliff of enormous economic consequence.

Anyone with half a brain can hear the sound of the gigantic waterfall ahead; it’s no longer theoretical, but quite real.

Yes, Romney has some serious faults (like zero comprehension of the Middle East time bomb), but we know that he has the inherent capability to overcome them - once he’s seated in the command chair. But most importantly, we know he has the ability to see – Economic Reality.

Obama on the other hand never had and, most likely, never will have such situation command or vision as Romney. And though it is not my intent to be unkind in a partisan manner- simply truthful, he is the essence of an Al Sharpton with a Harvard education.

It is time for the ‘Great Black American Experiment’ to be over. Up the road, and I feel quite confident stating this as an American Black, we can try again, in led dangerous times, with a more qualified candidate.

This nation needs to save itself via the voting booth this November 6th - or we're effectively - doomed!

Don Williams said...

The Republic endorsed Romney, Bush both times he ran, McCain and Kyl every time they ran, ultra Conservative Trent Franks, so I often wonder why Conservative bloggers call the Republic "The Repugnant"

Sure Valdez, Montini and Benson are Liberal but the Editorial Board tells us the Arizona is indeed a Conservative paper.........

midnightsstaff said...

Baghdad don W.. glad to see you are still producing at least one beneficial commodity to the world- carbon dioxide..
..keep it up buddy the trees appreciate it.

The failed newspaper of record somehow overlooked the part about him being a red diaper doper baby- must have been an oversight.

This is the only recent example of a true communist being elected to such a high office in the world's history..

Putin doesn't count, Russia despite it's size is a third world nation with a first class military..
Venezuela could be considered as possibly a close second- Greece is about ready to embrace the neo nazi, fascist "Golden Dawn party"so things might be rough in Europe soon.

Yes don.. be extra careful as to not vote for George Bush this time- push it all the way through when you vote for another dose of pure evil, we sure don't need any hanging chads..

My opinion has not changed one bit.. except now I believe that anyone that voted for this cancerous pinko in '08 should permanently be restricted by law from ever voting in this nation again.

midnightsstaff said...

Oh don I forgot to ask, who do you think won the First Lady debate?

Jim McAllister said...

From RettaJim,


I would almost bet that Benson, Valdez and Montini were home with a severe attack of constipation the day that the Editorial Board voted to endorse Romney. What other excuse could there be? It would have been great to be a fly on the wall during the board discussion of the endorsement.

Jim McAllister said...

From: Lynda in the Virgin Islands.

Wow!!! That's great. And interesting. Just prior to reading your blog I read that CBS ran a banner friday announcing that Obama had won the election.
I wonder if Montini and Valdez are protesting the Republic right now!!

I'm looking forward to the debate tonight!! I'm also excited that I finally figured out that I CAN vote from here in the Virgin Islands and HOW. We have Requested our early ballots and our votes will be sent via email. My husband has received his ballot, but my son and I are still waiting for ours.
Luckily, Arizona allows early ballots to be requested AND tuned in all the way through election day.

Now that I got this figured out, and supposing it all works right and they get accounted for properly... That 3 more votes for Romney from our household!! Woohoo!! And if our ballot happens to have AZ things listed on it as well (since over seas people have to register with their most recent state they lived in), that will be three more votes for Joe!!

Jim McAllister said...

From Ken Honeyman, Florida

The 'Salt Lake City Tribune' endorses Obama. Romney has had "...Too many FLIP-FLOPS to be a consistent & principled President"

Jim McAllister said...

From John Washington, Scottsdale


This endorsement sounds only slightly stronger than the Republic’s endorsement of Jim Lane. Something to the effect of, “He sucks less than the other guy.”

That aside, I don’t understand why a “newspaper” feels the need to endorse anyone, rather than just checking the facts thoroughly and reporting them.

Jim McAllister said...

From Larry Rupp, Arizona

I read it and yes, I get their paper and find myself paying about $24/mo. Basically for non-news. I like the comics and puzzles.

With their record what does this mean?

Do you really think it'll change liberal minds?

I doubt it. But thanks for the news Jim.

Larry Rupp

nativekentuckian said...

I'm most definitely not a Romney fan....but much more conservative.....might it be that the Republic is endorsing the "lesser of two evils"? appears that it is the only choice most Americans have in this election.....which candidate will do less harm to our country....

Jim McAllister said...

I'm with ya Larry. Barb and I do the easier United puzzle daily and work on the Sunday NYT and LA Times during the week because they are such a bitch in comparison.

Jim McAllister said...

Hi Lyn,

Good to see you guys are Romney voters. We need all the help we can get.

Weird about that channel 5 thing with the race going to Obama. Somebody is probably on the carpet for that.

Hope all is well.

Jim McAllister said...


I agree; so many papers always claim they are impartial then when they endorse someone it seems odd. I've found that usually it doesn't matter who they endorse. It guarantees nothing.

I wish you could have won the mayor's job. I would have liked to have seen you Copper, Guy, and Chris in the Kiva.

Jim McAllister said...


I imagine Valdez was very unhappy in an overt way. Montini, I'm not so sure. He seems more laid back but I'm sure he wasn't happy.

Benson amazes me that he has a job. He is the most unrealistic and unfair cartoonist I have seen. He is also an ex-Mormon which probably clouds his views as can be seen in his strips.

I wish we could get m,ore of Ramirez.

Jim McAllister said...


Romney may flip-flop some but it beats being a total flop like the big "O".

The guy has to go.

Jim McAllister said...


"... might it be that the Republic is endorsing the "lesser of two evils"?...."

Could be but of the two I certainly agree with Romney much more than Obama. He's solid for free enterprise; something Obama knows nothing about with his big government socialist ideas and that silly "soak the rich" nonsense.

In this country, if a guy can't make it through free enterprise, it is usually his/her own fault.

Mike Slater said...

I don't take much stock in the Arizona Republics endorsements. They're all over the map. They endorse some Republicans yet will endorse a far leftist like Krysten Sinema.

The only reason I get the Republic is for the sports and the puzzles.

Jim, sorry about that game last night. I thought Cincinnati was going to win. Oh well you still have the Cardinals to root for.

Jim McAllister said...


Those damn libs always have a pocketful of fish hooks when the check comes! LOL

Benson is REALLY bad. I can see going after the other side a bit but he is way overboard like that frame he did the other day showing Obama knocking out Romney in the second debate which was even at best for Obama even with Obama having the Crowley advantage.

Montini must have the photos from the Christmas party to keep his job.

I would love to do what he does. Anyone with a brain could report the stuff he does and he has been getting by with that garbage for at least 20 years. I remember him in the Gazette long ago. I wonder what he makes.

Jim McAllister said...


Someone else mentioned they may be doing a rope-a-dope. Anything is possible.

I know the Cincinnati Enquirer, which is also a Gannett paper, has the email charged edition too.

I took it because I sometimes need photos from it for a monthly column I do in the hard copy Scottsdale Republic. The most annoying thing about it is that you have to log in every time to use it.

With the internet, a lot of print editions are disappearing. I see that Newsweek will not have a hard copy anymore. Too bad, (weep) another liberal rag gone!

Lots of former big time dailies have gone too like The Rocky Mountain News" and "Seattle Post-Intelligencer".

In Cincy, we had three papers when i was a kid; now only one. Print media is too slow for today's reader.

Jim McAllister said...

Thanks, Allen,

I love the waterfall analogy: "Anyone with half a brain can hear the sound of the gigantic waterfall ahead; it’s no longer theoretical, but quite real."

That says it all; we can't keep adding trillions to the debt and expect the wealthiest to cover the cost just because we have some guy in the White House who thinks "the rich should pay their fair share."

They are paying their fair share and more while this president wants to keep handing out free goodies by taxing the makers.

He doesn't realize the heart of the American people who just happen to like the days of picket fence America where everyone worked for free enterprise companies and were embarrassed to take any kind of welfare when times were tough.

Jim McAllister said...


The Sinema thing makes no sense. Valdez must have handled that one. Hopefully, she will lose.

Barb and I do the United crossword every day and the NYT and LAT during the week.

The Bengals were their usual selves against the Steelers. Every time they see those yellow and orange uniforms fro the steel city they fold.

The Cards game was good though. I love to see the Bidwills lose; I have nothing against the players.

They will be home next week and probably play on a great football afternoon of about 78 degrees which means that the Bidwills will as usual close the roof.

What a joke that us and they don't care what the fans think of sitting inside on a beautiful day.

I hope the Niners beat then 60-0.

Jim McAllister said...

Your president at work:

Obama considers the shootings at Ft. Food in 2009 as a "workplace violence" and not terrorism hence, no one should get benefits for injuries.

Sure, a Muslim goes beserk shouting "Allah Akbar" and kills 13 or our people and it is not terrorism.

Read more:

Jim McAllister said...

First line above should say Ft. "Hood" not "Food."

I was shaking with disgust when I wrote it.

Rick Kepple said...

I haven't seen the debates yet. ABC promised a live Internet feed, but I didn't get it. Youtube was supposed to have it live too, but I guess I'm computer illiterate and couldn't find it.

I read something about the Fort Hood Killer incident being ruled work place violence, but I just disregarded it as nonsense.

And I read a different take on the Entitlements and what Romney is talking about. It's not just Welfare. It's Wall Street entitlements too! It's people in general expecting the system to provide and we're supposed to be in a free market enterprise system where the strong survive or die, as in nature. No bailouts. No subsidies. He's gonna allow the economy to collapse for the good of the nation and I agree.

I do need more bullets though. I've been seeing a lot more people walking west on I-44 and probably toward Phoenix. Lots of homeless folks. Some with duffle bags. So someone better do something quick! The nation is crumbling.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, just watched the debate and Obama looked clueless as usual.

I noticed in all 3 debates Romney looked confident and was smiling while Obama seem dour and irritated.

I have never liked indoor stadiums. Football and baseball should be played outdoors on real grass during the day.I never like the idea of night games either. I guess that's why I rarely watch pro sports any more

Jim McAllister said...

The Debate just ended.

How about some opinions.

As far as I'm concerned, Romney played it pretty safe and presidential against a clearly agitated Obama who constantly hesitated, used his hands, and seemed generally irritated.

I give the edge to Romney and it's not because I support him. It's because I think he clearly won. He did it by looking relaxed, calm, and informed on all subjects.

At first I was not happy that he skipped Libya but as the debate went on, his easy going style took over and I thought that Libya may have just caused some strife which I'm sure Obama had plans to combat. Because of Romney's coolness, O never had a chance.

Romney clearly was a guy who had a 10 run lead going into the ninth inning and didn't do anything dumb to spoil it.

In two weeks we'll find out what America thinks.

midnightsstaff said...

Well never one to keep my opinion to myself, I think Jim's analysis is pretty much a wrap.
I never thought it mattered after the first debate anyway, America is ready for a change that is a lock, as usual I can't stand the voice so I turn the sound off that duplicitous bastard's pack of lies and just watch the body language with some nice music in the background..

We all saw a man and a boy on that stage, hell Bob S. was more presidential than an agitated control freak with self control issues.

Jezuz.. The Romney's looked like a casting call for an up and coming "The Walton's" remake.

I think America is tired of these Shitcago values grifters anyway, I just realized that I might possibly have listened to that idiotic voice for the last time if I'm lucky- even with the sound off I can still hear that insincerity driven contemptuous voice of his that drives me the same as the bells did poor Quasimodo- "the bells, the bells"

...and yeah, baseball playoffs should be played in the afternoon and football should be played at Lambeau field in mid to late January..
they get to play the Cardinals pretty soon, in two weeks to be exact and at Lambeau... should be a fun day to cook up some brats and wash em down with a pabst eh?

steve buzzardo said...

"I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard." -- Ann Coulter

Well, thats what Ann thought of the debate.

we learned that the asshole in chief thinks that the Navy is obsolete like horses and Bayonets

Mike Slater said...

Middy, brats and beer. It doesn't get any better than that.

To me beer is the nectar from the gods to be enjoyed whenever possible.

As far as the Cardinals playing in Green bay it will be like watching a train wreck.

Jim McAllister said...


Brats, the Packers, and Pabst? Life is good!

Also, Go Giants. The Reds had them down 2-0 in games with 3 coming up in Cincy.

The Cards had them down 3-1 and they won that series 4-3.

That's great baseball and I'm glad to see that lousy wild card team (Cardinals) out. They shouldn't have even been there.

More Stella please waitress!

Jim McAllister said...


Ya gotta love Ann and also Laura Ingraham. NOBODY gets the best of those two!

One of the announcers said a marine emailed them and said they still use bayonets.

We have a prez who is going to talk about military equipment and he has never served a day.

Jim McAllister said...


I agree on the brats and beer and you're right; beer is the nectar of the gods.

I splurged for some Stella Artois yesterday from Belgium. It was like silk going down.

Packers 31-7 over Cards. Wait until those little sissies who play under a dome in Glendale no matter how nice the weather gets to Green Bay in winter.

midnightsstaff said...

Looks like that racial harmony is a bit off tune, this can't be good for America- the last thing we need is more politics made out of criminal behavior- but it's a "never let a crisis go to waste" mentality of political reality we lead in the brave new world.

.."NEW ORLEANS -- A 20-year-old black woman told police she was set on fire by three men who wrote the initials KKK and a racial slur on her car in northeastern Louisiana"

..three way race between Sharpton, Jackson and Allred to see who can get to her first.. my money is on Bullhorn Al.

midnightsstaff said...

Karen McQuillan writing in the American Thinker this morning evidently saw the same thing I was telling you about.

America saw the difference between a man and a boy.

midnightsstaff said...

and another, same thing.

Jim McAllister said...



(sorry, I hit caps by accident)

midnightsstaff said...

Thought it was a ransom note.

midnightsstaff said...

....or tourrette's...

Jim McAllister said...


Both of those American Thinker pieces are great. I especially enjoyed McQuillan with her wolf analogy.

Everyone should read those.

Jim McAllister said...


This thing must be running slow today. I didn't see my ransom note answer so I re-did it correctly.

They say Yahoo is gone and Google will be in 5 years. I guess it's starting early on my equipment.

Tourette' never knows!

steve buzzardo said...

Obama's attempt at a steely gaze came across as unpleasant, hostile, even silly

"And so we were left for the last four years with a fake alpha"

I like that, a perfect description

midnightsstaff said...

Haha.. "the false alpha"... fits!

Rick Kepple said...

I watched about a half hour of the debate this morning on Youtube, but I'm working to try to create jobs out of just the name of a LLC, highly skilled, unemployed or disabled people in the Ozarks and create a major music label from almost nothing, and now I'm working on a plan to get their label on a dozen music Internet sales sites. We've got a few promising young artists and billions of dollars to make, again from the Missouri Ozarks.

We're some of Romney's 12.5 million dollar jobs, but I started this corporation for these musicians in 2011, from existing companies. Now they're almost ready for itunes. Like one CEO said, that's billions of dollars from billions of people.

So Romney is liable to use Dell Mack's company as an example of how America is improving. And don't worry; I have this beautiful young lady all picked out for the company spokesperson and she's a company executive too.

Indie is going global, cause Dell Mack's old songs are still played overseas. This is gonna be a cinch. Yep.

So who's gonna endorse Dell Mack? Republicans or Democrats? Dell is a genuine American hero! What a concept the 75-year-old Rockabilly legend has, to employ so many people! I don't know where Dell gets his ideas. Probably from his vast experience.

I don't know who I'm voting for, but Romney does argue better. At least he had details this time. Since we're gonna be billionaires, I better vote for Romney.

midnightsstaff said...

another ugly day in the market.. unless you have shorted it..

Yeah, I think most of America weren't listening to the pack of lies any more than I did.. it's the visuals that have swung the election.

Pretty smart of President Romney to ignore the impulse to address each of the lies specifically- the fact checkers did that today, but his focus was to appear confident, not get knocked off point and let the little bitch implode.

..gotta get to those too close to call senate seats tho..
I guess he sees it, after all he has done pretty well without my help so far.

Rick Kepple said...

Middy says the stock market is plunging.

But Nick said that in tough times, people always want to hear happy music. The blues. He's right.

As the economy has worsened, more millionaires begin looking at Dell Mack Production LLC, Hit House Recording and the music label, Sho-Me-Mo, as a viable investment. Mainstream everything is collapsing and suddenly Indie is the place to be.

Don't be scared. Come on over to the crazy side of the street. It's always fun over here! Ever hang around a music studio? It's fun.

Rick Kepple said...

Romney says that we can't kill our way out of this mess, but he's not been to Hit House Recording, where our artists are killing the competition!

CJ's right. My brain is compartmentalized. I'm in the creative wing right now. Please leave a message and my assistant will call you back as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, we have a new artist who doesn't look at all like anyone you've known, other than human, and he's a cross between Reggae and Ricky Lee Jones. Gonna be a billion dollar song! He will shake Wall Street down to its foundations! Mitt Romney will love his music! You should too.

Nick West. If anyone knows about starting over, it's Nick. Now stop crying about lost investments! Become Dell Mack's best financial friend today and reap the profits tomorrow!

No musicians were hurt in the making of this comment.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, my one brother is a Tiger fan and my other brother is a Giants fan. I'm waiting to see which one throws something at the TV first.

Next Monday the Cards play the Niners on Monday night. It could be ugly. I wonder how much longer the Cards will keep their coach.

CJ Phoenix said...

"CJ's right. My brain is compartmentalized." I never said that, Rick. Compartmentalization can be a HEALTHY thing to do when it allows a person to function day-to-day without stressing on crap from the blogs, politics, fantasies about rock stars ... and so on. What I said is that I can compartmentalize. You have a very, very, very obvious handicap in that way tho.

Good grief, last night's debate was a *YAWN*er.

midnightsstaff said...

Perhaps it was the other Cj that Rick is referring to- you remember the mystery postings..

I agree, that debate had me looking at the clock about five min. into it..
It was a mere formality after all, the topic was never actually discussed more than for each of them to congratulate each other before it got nasty.

I think they could have spoken in Mandarin for all it was worth but the show must go on and I doubt many minds are left to change anyway.
Hope your new job is working out..

midnightsstaff said...

Hang in there guys, less than two weeks and this part will be over, Mitt Romney will be elected President and then we can breathe a sigh of relief.

..It was Sir Winston Churchill that stated concerning democracy "It’s the worst possible system, except for all the others"
I contend that everyone should thank God at least this time they aren't asking us to load up on higgins boats- just vote.

Uninstalling Obama……… ███████████████▒ 95% complete.

..'bout time for the outrageous smears to come out.. it's how communists operate.
It's why we need a decisive voter turn out, the only thing they have left is to try to keep people from coming to the polls.

You can bet it will be as ugly as you have ever seen it get- he's a cornered desperate rat.

Advice from one unemployed person to another, eh CJ?

Apparently the rumor in the music studio is that I'm in love with SN. I thought we were friends, but a real friend would have talked to me, so therefore friendship in the music industry doesn't mean a damned thing. But my reputation is permanently ruined thanks to her silence. Too bad that silence can't be put into a weapon. We could kill all our enemies and not hear a sound.

Sadly, I am the joke in the Ozarks. SN won. She finally found a way to destroy me and all she had to do was say that we were friends. Plus the morphine.

The government got what they wanted; the CIA used to and apparently still do, give a drug to a journalist that will make that person seem insane. Or kill them. Especially those who are a threat to the wealthy, but also a good man. But I doubt any of you intelligent people believe that the government would do that.

It's been a great adventure though, but no one is ever gonna take me seriously again. It's an old MK Ultra trick the CIA used to do to journalists who wrote the truth once too often. Discredit writers with drugs to make them delusional.

Just wait until they do it to you. And you people can't shut up about Obama. If he gets elected, y'all should stop going to the doctor. They got to other people through their doctors too. They got to me. They'll get to you too.

Rick Kepple said...

Doctors owe student loans. They are paid by insurance companies. Doctors do what they are told.

The rich folks are gonna win again. They do with every election. This time, they are reshaping the world to try to control 7 billion population in the world and counting.

Fortunately with population explosions in nature, always comes a population bust. Disease or a virus wipes out all but a few and the population starts growing all over again.

But with humans, the rich plan for this stuff. In the end, unless you're at the very top of the food chain, you're just dead meat, along with me. We all are.

Romney will try to rebuild America and lose interest. He's best at destroying things. He really is and that's why I favor him this morning. The population needs to be reduced and he could easily do that.

Rick Kepple said...

Nah, I'm gonna vote for Obama!

The reason is very simple and I'll explain.

The Bible says, "For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.'"

Now Romney's way of helping the poor will be to kill them. It's not a bad plan if it's done quickly, but the rich like to kill people, so they'll starve them and that takes a long time.

Obama is a peacemaker. But you know how those guys are. Peacemakers get people killed. Efficiently.

What it comes down to, is who would the American people rather go to war against? Romney or Obama? Well, Obama of course.

That's why I'm going to vote for him. Both Romney and Obama will get people dead. Fact. It just hasn't happened yet.

I have no kids and no wife. It doesn't matter to me if people are all Muslims in the future. I won't be here. Not my problem.

Rick Kepple said...

"..'bout time for the outrageous smears to come out.. it's how communists operate."

Todd Akin called Claire McCaskill a dog on Saturday. His campaign spokesman tweeted that Senator McCaskill is a breed of dog called a Bullshitsu.

Yep. The Commies are already starting, so Middy's right.

Todd Akin leads in Missouri. He, along with the Republican Party, don't like women. At least they're honest, you gotta give'em that.

You guys didn't watch that anti-Communist film that I posted, did you? Nope. That's because SN and the CIA did their job well in discrediting me.

Oh, but I get a "nut check." Maybe I'll not vote at all. Don't want the insane picking a President, do you? After all, you folks are rich. If y'all say that I'm insane and delusional, it must be true. Wealth speaks louder and righter. Fact.

I'm so proud of the job the rich have done in creating our perfect world. I need a tissue. I feel a tear of happiness coming on.

Stock market ... going ... down ... you see, they need chaos in 2013. Chaos is profitable.

midnightsstaff said...

quit whining in public you loser- you are tiresome.

It has been proved without any doubt that two hours into the siege at Benzgali Capt. Zer0 knew full well what was happening and did nothing about it.
It figures.

I know most cannot relate to the absolute terror being attacked at night brings, but to finally realize that no one is coming must have been as bad as the fall of the Alamo- and imagine how hard that must have been for others in the military to monitor the situation on the radio and the drone feed watching helplessly while their brothers were being murdered and savaged by our White House.

Our forces who get locked up in combat always think in terms of just hanging on until supporting fire can be realized.
..burning through magazines in those few minutes waiting for a 105 battery or calling in phantoms seemed like an eternity in Vietnam- I can't imagine being caught in a hopeless firefight lasting over six hours.

Stop and think about it, what worse example of dereliction of duty has history ever offered us that rivals the scurrilous agenda of motivated inactivity committed by our communist in chief that night and what greater crimes than the ensuing cover- up with the help of a lap dog media has ever been orchestrated?

But morons like Rick have no interest in what happens to our military or our soldiers just as long as he thinks he gets to keep his stolen benefits.

You are a coward and a fraud Rick, your childish attitude gives you away just like it did your equally phony commander in chief.

CJ does have a point about me.

Maybe instead of helping Dell Mack's studio and people to make money, I should spend my disability on finishing my bunker before the spring. That way, no matter who is elected, I'll be ready for war.

As long as I stay off the government's pills, I'm fine. I'll live a bit longer. But everyone dies. It's a transition from this life to freedom.

Y'all should have cared, but you didn't. Instead, I have been made to look nuts.

If Iran sends drones from Venezuela to the U.S., their target will be Scottsdale and Southern Cali. Romney is talking about investing in Latin America. It's Obama's speech from 2008. He said the same thing in Florida.

Grupo Santander has already been to Latin America. Romney's too late.

I see no profitable future for Americans. That especially goes for SN because of what she did to embarrass the government in 1981. That's why they singled her out when everyone and their brother was doing cocaine back then. Why her? Because she's an enemy of the State.

Y'all best prepare. Your gold won't take you far during a food shortage in 2013. But the rich always do well, don't they? History books tell us so. The poor will die like flies, but they never talk about the stench in the books, do they?

Rick Kepple said...

"You are a coward and a fraud Rick, your childish attitude gives you away just like it did your equally phony commander in chief."

That's right Middy. Continue the assault on a disabled dude. You people drove me to insanity with your rants and organized attacks. I've got the evidence and I even took it to psychology professionals and they call you "Crowd Stalkers." Catchy, huh? It's what the rich do for fun.

Just think of all the people you'll get to kill, Middy. All the poor you'll get to murder. Makes you drool with anticipation, doesn't it, Middy?

Rick Kepple said...

I posted on Facebook concerning Fleetwood Mac; what bill are you planning on not paying to go see your band? SN has bills to pay. All of those bandmembers have bills to pay and they can't survive like we can. They need money. When was the last time that you spoke with a big time rock star? When was the last time you wrote to them and they wrote back? When you called their agent, manager, publicist, how long did it take, before they hung up on you? The fact is that the members of Fleetwood Mac just want your money. They don't want you. But if you can't afford to go, then go see some local band in your area for no cover charge or a small one. Support Independent Music. Support your home town.

midnightsstaff said...

Here is now finally after five years of propping this fraud up now trying to save her own career..! fail..

.. even the Commie News Network had to come out and admit it.

I told you the media would have to abandon the walking dead to try and save their own careers.. it has started.
..the media is as usual are crowding into the lifeboats pushing women and children aside, ripping floatation devices from the hands of children in effect tossing them to the sharks.

typical gutless liberals.

Rick, you need to get a new hobby and quit annoying people with your inane ramblings on this blog site.

"Rick, you need to get a new hobby and quit annoying people with your inane ramblings on this blog site."

Why sure Mikey. So you want communism then? I don't do communism, dude. I'm a capitalist.

"All Rick thinks about anymore is money, money, money! I wish he'd just go back to talking about [SN]!" I crack the whip on those musicians! Give me more cowbell!!!

midnightsstaff said...

This election has the potential to be even more curious than anyone could imagine.

Looks like this hurricane could cause some real damage to the whole eastern seaboard starting next week if it takes a western hook, (or would that be slice?) and next Wednesday is full moon.
... for some reason the tides get much stronger during the strongest phases, the full and new moon.

I have about given up on my multi-decade long campaign to have Greenwich Mean Time changed to the more female friendly sidereal period- when the moon rises in the east that is morning, when it sets in the west.. you get the picture..

Think about it guys, it makes more sense to have the months coincide with the female cycle or vice versa I suppose, than to expect the ladies to deal with an ever changing calendar that is out of sync astrologically speaking.

Of course I haven't worked out every little detail yet, including that pesky leap year, but the best minds are still working on it..
I gotta get more whisker lickin's.

Another bad month long clean up will certainly affect the dynamics of the election, leaving lots of scenarios to consider- especially voter turn out, and I know that President Romney's voters are willing to crawl through broken glass on this election but you cannot say the same about the socialists.

I heard we are supposed to get a wet winter this year, I'll probably never get over this sinus infection.

CJ Phoenix said...

"Advice from one unemployed person to another, eh CJ?" No, Rick, I am not unemployed now because I have a job. In fact, you're not unemployed either because you have to be actually trying to find a job or else you are simply a jobless whiner. And, btw, who is stalking who around here? You are the unwanted guest on this board. But you just won't go away...

midnightsstaff said...

On second thought I might run that Sidereal time change idea with "The Red Menace", she needs a make over from that failed no signs campaign and the equally disastrous decision to catch that rising birth control star (I have forgotten her name already) anyhow.

******-------*****- Rocks!!

Something of this magnitude if handled right could launch her so far less than spectacular political career to national recognition.
...this sounds like a natural.

Rick Kepple said...

No CJ, I don't actually have a job, as defined by the IRS. Technically, it's just a neat hobby. Point of fact, no one has made any money, but we aren't LAZY Americans and are doing this, with the theory that we can generate income eventually. Once we put sales on the Internet, that's when we all get paid.

It's better than waiting around for someone to make a company to hire me. I'm impatient.

There have been supervisors and employers who told me that I intimidate them with my knowledge. I don't hardly see how that's possible. I just like creating stuff out of what's there.

Now, as for the Republic backing Romney; c'mon dudes. The advertisers are likely all Republicans, right? It's a simple business decision.

Rick Kepple said...

"And, btw, who is stalking who around here?"

I'll do my best with that question, CJ.

I think Middy and Mike are stalking CJ.

CJ is stalking Jimmy.

Jimmy is stalking Glo.

Glo is stalking CJ.

CJ is stalking me.

I'm stalking me and I took a restraining out on me, wrote a threat to me, retaliated against me and I just can't believe that I'd do such a thing. It's a Gemini thing. Because of my narcissism, I only stalk me.

midnightsstaff said...

..."I intimidate them with my knowledge. I don't hardly see how that's possible"

**ding ding ding** we have a winner folks.. most absurd quote of the day..
it was nose and nose with that first lu-loo this morning that set me off.

.."As long as I stay off the government's pills, I'm fine. I'll live a bit longer. But everyone dies. It's a transition from this life to freedom. far so good, but he couldn't have left it there he had to go all whiny..

Y'all should have cared, but you didn't. Instead, I have been made to look nuts"...word..

Christ.. did he slip another Nicky to us again?- yep, right there in the following text.. sure as a fart in church.. " I see no profitable future for Americans. That especially goes for SN because of what she did to embarrass the government in 1981. That's why they singled her out when everyone and their brother was doing cocaine back then. Why her? Because she's an enemy of the State"

... seriously someone should be archiving these down home pearls of wisdom... he's a frickin' hillbilly renaissance man, caught somewhere between Will Rogers and Jerry Springer.

don't you dare censor this guy Jimmy, he has established rights to access- you own him for life.

On the other hand, you might be writing a fictional novel about "enchanted bunker"... Rick's thoughts he has freely given are your property now- right?

Rick Kepple said...

Oh shit, dudes. I just read that y'all got United Nations troops in Phoenix! Holy New World Order!

I get the feeling they want Obama elected. Did y'all ever read that G20 report from July 2008? The chosen one to bring peace.

And UN troops in Phoenix.

Fox News said that if the UN troops step out of line in Texas, the foreigners will be arrested.

Still, the United Nations is apparently treating us Americans as unruly people.

To quote Bruce Willis in one of his McClain movies, "Not yet!"

Y'all be nice little sheeple now. You got a lot of money to lose if them blue people don't like you.

I envy you guys for those UN troops there. You guys got to be feeling like you get a front row seat to history.

midnightsstaff said...

Na... that 's just the landscapers...

Jim McAllister said...


You are posting way too much and your content is a a bit "iffy" at tomes.

You made eleven posts on 10-24 and that's too many. I appreciate your interest in the blog but it's getting out of control. Eleven is too much in one day.

Since it is not unusual for Middy, Mike, CJ and a couple others to post about three times in a day, please hold your posts to three.

Anything over that will be deleted so organize your comments into three blogs.



Jim McAllister said...

"times" not "tomes."

Jeez! I have to start proofreading this stuff!

midnightsstaff said...

"Tomes" might apply to Mitchner-
otherwise get Tinkerbelle to proof read em..
Rebecca handles mine (X)

What time does Rick's actual day start and end?- I imagine some of those days go nearly 36 hours or so...

..Would that be 12:01 in the morning or six in the morning considered as to counting towards a day, and is that Mountain time or Hillbilly Standard?

Three concise and well thought out posts eh?- hell, he hasn't posted three of those yet.

So... do my responses to Rick count toward the total of the entire day or is the three posting rule apply to new work only?

Maybe you should give him unlimited rants between ten at night until early morning?- kind of like the cell phone plans.

Are you going to let Rick "bank" unused posts and carry them to the next day?

I just used one of my posts and didn't even get to what I was thinking about.


Rick Kepple said...

I'm sorry, but I am not a Communist and I do not adhere to quotas. If you got a problem with that, piss off!

If people aren't interested in my life, they just aren't interesting people! And SN taught me all I know of how to communicate with people. Just remember that, Jimmy. That's why I'm such a bitch.

The coffeemaker died this morning. I got a dozen different projects going on at the same time to try and build a successful business, before all the "entitlements" are gone, including those for your spoiled little asses.

I've got beginner artists who think they're gods and experienced artists ready to strangle them. I'm doing it all for free and at my expense and because I'm not rich like Lee Iacocca, the media couldn't give a shit that I'm trying to manage this studio to create jobs ... and I work for free. The IRS calls that a "hobby" so Lee Iacocca brought Chrysler back for a hobby, don't you see.

So then some blogger talking about matters of little importance limits me to three comments while some former prison guard is allowed to treat me like I'm an inmate and a printing press operator working at a drug store thinks she's better than me? None of you are doing much with your lives. But calling me lazy.

I don't think so.

The entire reason that I post that many comments is because YOU PEOPLE ARE PISSING ME OFF AND IT'S MY WAY OF TRAINING YOU "gods" and "goddesses." You're worse than spoiled entertainers!

There are fourteen thousand SN' out there waiting to be discovered. Most of them are YOUNGER! PRETTIER! MORE TALENTED!

So spare me your quota shit.

Jim McAllister said...

I use three as an arbitrary number. Naturally, if a sensible conversation takes place where there are more than three comments by several people, that is fine; the more, the better.

It's the high number of comments that are unrelated to anything on the blog that I want to avoid.

midnightsstaff said...

..."That's why I'm such a bitch"

and an extremely manly bitch at that!

..."The coffeemaker died this morning"

give it a nice send off and buy another.

..." I'm doing it all for free and at my expense and because I'm not rich like Lee Iacocca, the media couldn't give a shit that I'm trying to manage this studio to create jobs ... and I work for free "

no one is denying that you are worth every penny you charge Rick.

think about it Jim, this guy is solid gold- after all where else am I going to get raw, unfiltered material to work with without Bodo stopping by. know I get up cranky needing some target to address my farcerants at.
Just consider the new word I just coined "farcerants" for instance... see how easy it is to create words out of the either when you have adequate material to work with..

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I watched the game last night and it may be the Giants year. Being a Dodger fan I always hated the Giants but I'm a National league guy.

The funny thing is my one brother is a Tiger fan and the other one's a Giant fan. After the game last night I know one of them is not happy.

midnightsstaff said...!

Hahaha.. Bissonette pranked..

midnightsstaff said...

It's getting better every day Jim, now Tejas has told the UN vote watchers to keep the hell out of their state..

"badges?- we don't need no stinkin' badges"

..."we're being invaded"- someone wake Jan Brewer up and tell her what's happening, better yet time for Sheriff Joe to saddle up the posse ..

The great states of Tejas and Arizona.. of brothers..
..where the hell is Russell the Impaler when you need him?
oh that's right The Red Menace with a lot of out of state money got him fired and replaced with some mincing eunuch who majored in conflict resolution.. huevos.. where's Clint!

Stalking? We doan need no stinkin' stalkin'!!!

..another great example of what a real man sent to Washington sounds like.

I only hope I get to see him in a real capacity- perhaps as President before I die... this is as close to a real life John Wayne as we have in politics today- he just stated that congress, (actually the Black Caucus) is full of communists.

we are winning folks, the tide has turned-

The Republican minor league today is as stacked as it has ever been, look at President Romney's pick for vice president..

It looks to me like the R&R express is not going to fool around or he would not have picked a guy like Paul Ryan.

Jim McAllister said...


You have to love Allen West. Great guy, smart, ex colonel , still has the white sidewalls hair, we need more like him.

Jim McAllister said...

That's funny with Bissonnette.

Jim McAllister said...


The Giants have always been my second favorite team.

When I was 13 in 1954 I got all the autographs of that '54 New York Giant World Series winning team. That was exciting stuff. One of them was Willie Mays.

Those guys took a great Cleveland team in 4 games.

I wasn't too happy at them beating the Reds in the playoffs this year but if the Reds can't do it, the Giants are next. Unbelievable how they won 6 elimination games in the playoffs and are now up 1-0 in the Series.

Jim McAllister said...

Hi Glo! No stinking stalkers around here I hope.

midnightsstaff said...

Honestly Jim, I don't think the Giants are any bigger than the other team, there is that one tall guy but....

This is actually a stalker free zone Jim's running, also no cussin', spittin' on the floor unless you mop it and no beating our wimmin folk without our approval, also you need to stand to attention when the pledge of allegiance is recited.

Stalking in today's society is normally considered to be both antisocial and unnecessary except for the rock star junkies...

The sane among us at least make the pretense of tending to our own business, after all if you survive long enough you realize there is enough tribulation to go around without cultivating more.

I'm starting to itch and it's not just the full moon on the rise, it doesn't look like we are going to have an NHL season this year..
..and that gets to me.. last year it was Dish network and that nonsense, now I might as well watch women's basketball.. does Phoenix have a women's basketball team?

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I still remember the famous catch that Willie Mays made off the bat of Vic Wertz in the 54 World Series.

Funny story about Willie, the Dodgers were playing the Giants at Dodger stadium and Willie was the lead off batter. Willie always liked to dig into the batters box.When he got settled in he looked up and saw Don Drysdale on the mound and called time out. This was before the game had started. He then filled in the holes and told the umpire that Drysdale doesn't like batters digging in the batters box.

Rick Kepple said...

"no one is denying that you are worth every penny you charge Rick."

I miss the old days of $200 an hour on some jobs. I read that some CEO's are making about ten times that!

The music company today officially endorsed the Democrats. Dell Mack is furious that Mitt Romney is out for his Social Security. Dell is a military veteran and receives Social Security retirement.

Jim McAllister said...


Speaking of beating the wimmin folk, I remember an NFL player years ago who was arrested for beating up his girlfriend. He was flabbergasted as he exclaimed: "Damn! It's gettin' so you can't beat them up even when they got it comin'"! They got it comin'? LOL

Giants up 2-0 and their pitching is really looking good. Did you see that curve that Romo was snapping off in the ninth. No way anyone was going to hit that one.

Now it's on to Detroit where itis supposed to rain all weekend. It could be interesting in the Tiger' home park and if they did have a rain out it would help get Verlander back in there.

Hockey is really stupid to hold up the season. They are more of a niche sport; they don't need the bad press.

Jim McAllister said...


I remember when Wertz hit that ball. He was unlucky that they were playing at the Polo Grounds in NY which was about 490 to center with Willie roaming the area.

I saw Mays play many times as a kid in Cincy. There wasn't a ball he couldn't hit. I saw him get hits off pitches that were almost over his head.

Willie and Hank Aaron were two of the best in the mid 50s. A writer once asked Hank how he was able to hit so well. His answer: "Hittins' easy."

Don Drysdale was one mean SOB on the mound. He was 6-6 with long arms and loved to go sidearm against those right handed hitters.

Needless to say, those guys stepped in the bucket many times with Don on the mound; even Willie. The Dodgers really had a 1-2 punch in the 60s with him and Sandy.

Rick Kepple said...

In the news this morning, an August nonpartisan report says that Mitt Romney's five point plan can't possibly work. Strange how an August plan is suddenly just now "newsworthy."

Anyway, the nerds who crunched the numbers is led by a former Bush aide!

They said that Romney's plan could NOT reduce taxes for all classes and could NOT reduce the deficit.

In fact, the only people Romney's plan would help, would be the elite. It would raise the taxes on the poor and middle class.

So now this report, previously ignored, is now in the forefront of the news and experts from math, economics, politics, etc. are all making it bigger or trying to hack it to pieces and not one is looking at the truth of the matter.

The truth is that people knew Romney was full of shit and they were still willing to vote for him.

BTW, I'm experimenting with a Mac computer and I want to see if it will solve a sound latency problem like all the nerds say it will. I got authorization from Dell Mack himself to get funding and experiment with new equipment. So for forty bucks, we're test driving a Mac.

midnightsstaff said...

Good idea not getting all specific on..

a. what that nonpartisan report was..

b. who the unnamed Bush adviser was- maybe Colin Powell?.

c. taking their word the plan could not work.

d. discern from those "factcheckers" that the plan was just another let the rich off with no taxes gimmick.
e. claim this is the news we have been waiting for that will change the election.

good solid reporting there Olsen.

forty bucks out of the experimentation funding account eh?
well you have to prime the pump I suppose.
The Mac might fix any technical difficulties with mixing you have but what about those voices in your head?
no Mac will help with them..

Rick Kepple said...

"That study found, in short, that Mr. Romney could not keep all of the promises he had made on individual tax reform: including cutting marginal tax rates by 20 percent, keeping protections for investment income, not widening the deficit and not increasing the tax burden on the poor or middle class. It concluded that Mr. Romney’s plan, on its face, would cut taxes for rich families and raise them for everyone else."

The Tax Policy Center says Romney's plan is impossible. Can't possibly work.

So tell me the fairytale of how rich people not paying any taxes and outsourcing jobs overseas is going to do Americans any good?

Republicans probably need to study political theory and learn how to govern.

The Democrats just need to listen to the people and do what they're told. But the Republicans have hitched their wagon to the rich and are completely fricking worthless these days. They keep clinging to Reagan like the present GOP policies are like his. No they are not. Reagan would have had Wall Street shut down and NO ONE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN BAILOUTS!

midnightsstaff said...

You are out of your mind Olsen.. read the Heritage foundation's take on that leftist bilge you are quoting.

an excerpt of that link.

..."The Tax Policy Center is the industry standard for producing high-quality tax data that are integral to tax policy debates. However, in this TPC report, the authors’ choices and assumptions lead them to a carefully chosen result that is misleading and biased. This hinders the debate on tax reform because lawmakers and the public need accurate information to make good decisions.
At best, this TPC analysis confirms that tax reform will require political leaders to make difficult decisions. This is self-evident. If tax reform were easy, Washington would have reformed the current 26-year-old code long ago"

they go on...

.."To provide a more thorough analysis of Governor Romney’s plan, the authors should show other ways to frame their analysis—including one that fully captures all of the plan’s aims—to give a more detailed account of the issues his plan presents.
They should also show the various ways that his plan could be revenue and distributionaly neutral.
Using dynamic analysis to evaluate the plan would further inform the public about the Romney plan because it would show its benefits, not just its costs.
An analysis on these grounds would move the debate forward rather than weigh it down with flawed results" usual you are entirely wrong, it figures tho that anyone incapable of reasonable thinking will naturally come to your conclusions- because they are weak minded.

You are the reason that carnivals were created Homer- you are a fish.

Guess we will see if the plunge protection/re elect Obama team will be able to save Apple today, it is down 2 percent in morning trading even after that hail mary stick save yesterday, the TBTF bankers/robotraders won't be able to keep it afloat much longer..

The entire Nasdaq is hinged on Apple, and the entire market is hinged on the Nasdaq.

.."Apple has a huge impact on the performance of the fund, and if it corrects that will impact total Nasdaq performance," Brigandi said. "That's a valid concern, and not one we can do anything about"

yeah, except watch the trainwreck.

Time to step up folks, if you don't like the idea of UN poll watchers in your state please sign this petition and ask everyone you know to do the same..

Mike Slater said...

Jim, Drysdale was a mean SOB. I saw a game he was pitching when he noticed the on deck batter was trying to time his pitches. He went into his windup and threw at the guys head.

Here's what some of the players that faced him had to say.

"Batting against Drysdale is the same as making a date with the dentist." Dick Groat

"Drysdale would consider an intentional walk a waste of three pitches. If he wants to put you on base, he can hit you with one pitch." Mike Shannon

"I hate to bat against Drysdale. After he hit you he'd come around, look at the bruise on your arm and say, do you what me to sign it." Mickey Mantle

To me Don Drydale and Bob Gibson were the most feared pitchers in the 60'S.

midnightsstaff said...

Something big is happening, the WH just called an emergency damage control meeting..

I bet it's all about the Benzgali scandal which is about to explode.

One of the dead Seal's dad is nearly calling Obama a murderer.. that could be politically awkward.

Rick Kepple said...

"it's not the election, it's what happens after the election"

Yeah. That's what I'm afraid of. I fear the worst in 2013. Food shortages, government cutbacks, stock market collapse, desperate people and I'll guide Dell Mack's company to exploit the disaster to come out as a heroic corporation. And corporations are people too.

Middy, I looked at the New York Times. I don't see anything about an emergency meeting at the White House. It was a joke, right?

midnightsstaff said...

You are a small scale Mitt Romney eh? a real rainmaker.- oh that's right you don't dirty your hands with profits.

I wouldn't be looking at the NYT either if I wanted to find something they are in on the cover up out.

Yeah a firing platform at two thousand feet using a mini gun can break up a party pretty fast.

and it would have except this was a coordinated attack to capture an ambassador for his October surprise..
of course Obama wouldn't want to fire on his troops.

Obama went to bed thinking he would be facing a hostage negotiation for the blind sheik the next morning..

Looking in that direction makes it all come into focus.
..those Navy Seals were there sheerly by accident.

..of course Obama hates Charles Woods, he probably believes it was his son's fault the thing didn't go as planned- if he hadn't been there in Bengazi the "lightbringer" would be looking pretty presidential negotiating successfully with the islamists- showing the world how it's done, just like batface told him it would.

At least that's the theory I would start with if it were me conducting the investigation- because when all the pieces fit it's not usually a coincidence- incidentally don't think the CIA is going to take one for the team if he is a lame duck.

..."No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate”....

Na... ain't that much love for the White House communists over at foggy bottom.

guess who said...

middy,... arguing with the insane never proves productive. By now it's beyond obvious that Rick isn't here to participate in any given topic. He seems to be here mostly to promote / perpetuate his obsessions and possibly push some one's buttons along the way.

Since the blog-site isn't equipped with an "IGNORE" feature, we might have to do it ourselves?

I'm in :-)

Jim McAllister said...


Great quotes about Drysdale and true I'm sure.

I like the one about not walking a guy on four pitches when one would do the job.

Speaking of Bob Gibson: Tim McCarver has related how one day he is catching Gibby and Gibby is having trouble on the mound.

McCarver goes out to check on him and possibly offer some advice. As soon as Gibson saw him he hollered, "Get out of here! The only thing you know about pitching is that it's hard to hit!"

Ya gotta love the old time players. Most of them had to work in the winter because baseball didn't pay enough. I remember pitcher Bud Podbielan of the Reds sold Mercurys during the off season.

No spoiled guys in those days.

Jim McAllister said...

Buzz, Middy:

This Benghazi thing is like Watergate: it's not going away.

O has a big problem there as the evidence mounts and its all coming out during the couple of weeks before the election which is great.

I hope the American public is paying attention to what that know nothing numb nuts has done.

I know how I would feel if my kid had died in that hell hole.

midnightsstaff said...

Yep.. looks like this is not going away..

glad to have someone have the guts to call a murder a murder- now how is the msm going to handle this?

Rick Kepple said...

I just read a little snippet of a headline this morning that says Romney and Obama could result in a tie. Some experts are even saying that Romney could win the popular vote and lose the electoral vote.

"Since the blog-site isn't equipped with an "IGNORE" feature, we might have to do it ourselves?"

Why do women always think that ignoring a man actually works? That only works on other women, sweety. And I don't write to win a popularity contest. That's the first thing I learned in journalism. You're either in it to be popular (women) or in it to make a difference (men).

That's why Men are elected President and not WOMEN!

Rick Kepple said...

According to a socialist publication, the EU and the U.S. are preparing to send military advisors to Mali.

Mali is in West Africa. They call it, "The Land of the Gangster-Jihadists." In March, 2012, a radical Muslim military coup overthrew the government.

The New York Times says that a military strike from Western governments on the Muslim rebels is inevitable.

Why Mali?

According to the CIA Factbook, Mali is at the crossroads of West African wealth. They are landlocked and have no seaport. Mali had 29 airports in 2006. Mali is about the size of Texas. Mali is 90 percent Muslim, 1 percent Christian. Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world.

But WHY is Mali suddenly important?

Because the radical Jihadists make their money from kidnapping corporate business people and collecting ransoms. reports that the Swiss have spent $5.9 million in trying to free two hostages held in Mali. The Muslims spend that money investing in heroin from Afghanistan to ship to Europe and Latin America, eventually winding up in North America. The radical Muslims control their air traffic and they use it for smuggling.

So it looks like American troops might be going to Africa in 2013, to fight all those wars. Like I've written many times, both Obama and Romney are helping to build their versions of Global Governance and under the G20's plan, they will redistribute Western wealth to stabilize the global population and end all wars.

.."WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday"

does it seem a strange time to be replacing General Ham?
..and what is the reason for replacing him?
maybe congress needs to bring him to Washington for a proper debriefing under oath..

..of course you have no idea what I am referring but the rumor is that it was General Ham who mobilized to respond and offer assistance to the Benzgali massacre and was going to do it despite orders, but was told to stand down by the White House and immediately relieved of command.

That impertinence could not be tolerated when the operation was going according to plan.
..but the media is more interested in binders and big bird I guess.

At the very least someone should ask why it was necessary to relieve the commanding officer at AFRICOM on 9/11/2012 of his duties during the Benzgali battle?- just one question, but the media is in the tank for Satan at the moment and cannot be bothered.

have a nice Saturday.

midnightsstaff said...

..Here is something else to consider- Gallup is talking Senate.

.."If these numbers are within even a few points of what this survey suggests, then Romney will win decisively and the GOP will pick up the Senate. We are likely standing on the edge of another GOP wave election"

midnightsstaff said...

Since the blog-site isn't equipped with an "IGNORE" feature, we might have to do it ourselves?

looks like I am on that ignore list as well Larry.. actually I don't like talking to Rick but he seems to be the only one who responds.

Maybe it's as simple as no one cares what happened and continues to happen, worse yet...maybe this corrupt, amoral nation actually deserves another dose of Obama.

Jim McAllister said...

Interesting about General Ham. The Benghazi thing just keeps getting more complicated and less explained to the public.

It looks like Obama is trying to sneak in a second term win before the excrement hits the fan.

Eleven more days.

Jim McAllister said...

"If these numbers are within even a few points of what this survey suggests, then Romney will win decisively and the GOP will pick up the Senate. We are likely standing on the edge of another GOP wave election."

We can only hope Gallup is right. Obama must be dumped and this country needs to regain it's senses and realize what it would be like to have him win and turn this into a socialist government.

The "free shit army" scares me. They are the losers who will not change.

proud said...

Point of information: GUESS WHO is not (lemme check, 1 um, there, yup 2 balls) a girl, and not Larry, but he'd still be PROUD to participate in most any SANE topic.

So with my new "snignore" button firmly pressed, let me say I think this Benghazi thing is going to blow up. Fox was the lone voice, then CNN began to give some coverage, in the last two days CBS, CNBC and a few others in MSM have reluctantly joined in even if only token exposure. Unlike Watergate where media was the pursuer of truth, this one falls to we the people. Not a bad idea to pepper the big 3 ABC< NBC and CBS with calls and emails asking why they are shirking their duty. A real leader would hold a news conference and splain WTF went wrong, take the heat and be done with it...this pathetic little Chicago piece of crap is looking more like Nixon by the minute.

It's indeed a sad day for the American press when the one and only tough interview Obama gets is from UNIVISON... he's getting away with doing fluff interviews on late-night comedy shows and MTV where some mad-hatter named ~Sway~ hit him with the biggies like "what will your girls be for Halloween"

The unfortunate thing is Obama is still able to bamboozal young, sound-bite swallowing,gen x'rs. Take a look at how informed the pro Obama, college electorate really is:

proud said...

In the Halloween spirit, here is something REALLY CREEPY.... Two videos, one of children being made to sing to their 'beloved' leader, Adolf Hitler....The second, the latest snarkery from the Obama campaign. American kids being made to sing a negative ad to help Obama win reelection. Comments?

Jim McAllister said...


That 2:41 snip from Ohio U. shows how ignorant and uninformed these kids are.

Here we have a totally unqualified piece of shit for a president who has done nothing right since he became president and these kids know nothing of what he has or has not done. All they know is "I'm goin' to vote for Obama."

All he has to do is go to their campuses and act cool with his jive ass talk to the kids and he wins them over.

It's sad. Hopefully the wrong that is Obama will be rectified on November 6 and this country will get back on track regardless of the stupidity of the dumbass college kids.

Jim McAllister said...


The first wouldn't play but I can imagine what it was.

If my kid would ever have been forced into that rotten propaganda song of the second I think I would find the SOB responsible and make them wish they had never been born.

Those kids are so brainwashed it's unbelievable.

Whatever happened to the America we knew where people celebrated Americanism and were proud of it?

Now, we have a guy who probably isn't even an American living in the White House and he actually has strong support.

In 1980 the people figured out another loser was in charge in Carter. God help us if they can't figure it out this time with Obama.

proud said...

Middy, there are several videos making the rounds where the interviewer poses questions of Obama supporters he says are ROMNEY policies, but really are actual Obama policies. It shows clearly that a good many of Obama supporters support him for all the wrong reasons. Some for his race, some for his celebrity and cool appearances on hip shows.

Jim, can't much blame the kids, I'm sure they were thrilled at being in a commercial, but what kind of President has little kids doing a nasty attack ad where they sing Romney wants people to die?> A couple days ago they had the teen chick ad where she compared voting for Obama to having sex the first time, and now this, beyond disgusting and way below any level of Presidential decency or responsibility...If they win with this smut it speaks volumes about what this nation has become...

midnightsstaff said...

I think I am as mad as I ever have been at anyone before, this is an obvious theater of the absurd that went wrong, and now the media is leading the charge on the cover up for this traitor..
but maybe he isn't really a traitor now that I think about it, he would have to be an American to qualify and he is anything but one.

I am not going to be happy with Romney just winning the election, I want to see this whole disgusting affair come to light and Obama and the whole posse in Ft. Leavenworth awaiting a firing squad.
and that goes for Hillary as well, she doesn't get a pass because at min. she was in on the cover up.

The media is the tough part.. they are pure evil with this full time campaigning for the devil himself and now ignoring the biggest story in America's history for purely agenda driven reasoning is a low point in a series of low records.

..time is running out for a democratic solution, when we are in another depression caused by political games playing and they finally realize that all along the media knew about it.. people should and probably will hang.

..this murder of our fellow American warriors has legs and is not going to go away just because the media is stonewalling right along with the demonic Obama administration..

..piss on their neck and may they all rot in hell.

midnightsstaff said...

Sorry about the bad mood but I had to go to a pretty somber event today, my buddy got married.

I knew it before he told me a few months ago, hell I could see it in his eyes.
Once a guy gets that look it is inevitable and there really isn't much you can do for them at that point.. the fever has to run it's course.
But it was a nice ceremony, simple yet elegant in a nice courtyard, the bride was stunning and the groom -well, let's just say he married up.

..but that's still no excuse for throwing your entire future away... he's only 45 or so, still out of work so I think he still should be sowing his wild oats.

...or oat in his case.

...this is a guy I remind you that told me not all that long ago in a true George Costanza moment being between girlfriends that he was considering becoming a porn star..

Of course everyone behaved themselves like ladies and gentlemen.. no course talk, people were friendly and I just drove away whistling to myself and thanking God it wasn't my wedding.

steve buzzardo said...

We all have a right to be in a bad mood, with what the ass has done over the last 4 years.

I agree he should go to prison at the very least, just losing the election is getting off way too easy. He gets to enjoy his big fat pension and retire to a mansion in Hawaii.

Jim McAllister said...


I'd kill to be 45 again!

One would think that with the cover up on Benghazi some of these Obama automatons and the press would see the light and see this bum for what he is. Not so; not gonna happen. Guys like Don and Joe will still love him.

This is the first election I have been through where I absolutely despise a candidate and I have been voting since 1962.

Obama is a despicable sorry excuse for a human being. It's not just because I disagree with his socialistic agenda; it's because is is simply not qualified for the job and is a crummy person.

My old man felt the same way when FDR died in 1945. I was 4 years old and a neighbor came over gasping about Roosevelt just dying. My old man looked him like "So what?"

Rick Kepple said...

"This is the first election I have been through where I absolutely despise a candidate and I have been voting since 1962."

You're stressing too much. God's got control over this, Jimmy. I saw it in a dream. It's just like 1980.

God is the entire reason this country is great, because people from two absolutely different backgrounds and lifestyles can help one another and be friends. You won't see that in Russia or China where someone from the elite and a peasant are friends!

I got a feeling that God is going to set things right, Jimmy. The poor shall be rich and the rich shall be poor, doesn't necessarily mean wealth. Being rich is about being happy and blessed from the money that is wisely spent.

What if the elite started teaching the welfare, food stamp, disability recipients that they don't have to do behave poor. They have a choice. What if rich folks actually cared?

Trickle down is obviously nonsense and if Socrates is right that a good economy is a cooperative effort between the classes, then we must change as a People.

The CEO's are right that jobs will never come back, unless it's more profitable. So then the corporate executives have an obligation to teach poor people how to manage their own lives. They can't just abandon them.

So in order to save America, the collective heart must change and the only way that can happen ...

is with a song.

Rick Kepple said...

I was out late at the studio last night. Passing around guitars and everyone playing something.

I guess it's something of a miracle that I got a Mac computer in the studio. We still got to get the recording program and the analog to digital interface. The engineers have to learn the software. Then I got to get us on itunes and that takes 20 albums and none of their songs are cataloged.

It is my opinion that the elite need to start sifting through the homeless, because I'll bet that a few can't pass written tests, but they might be able to read computer code. Some may not get along well with people, but they might be geniuses with numbers. There is just so much potential out there!

Maybe the Republicans do have a good plan to turn old prisons into dorms, with remodeling, to help the homeless find productive lives. This cookie cutter world just ain't working.

Romney could change things to make everyone rich and not just the wealthy, like time after time.

But like Arlo Guthrey said, if we lived in a perfect world, the people who strive to make a difference would never succeed at anything. So because the world sucks, people like me stand out, because I'm making success (with God's help) out of a small music studio.

One could argue it's socialism. It's also capitalism. It could even be communism. It's definitely an ism. Romney should follow my example.

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah... a song.. maybe we should all link hands and sing the Coke song eh?

.."it's the real thing"..

typical McCaskill voter.

Pew says more people are looking to the internet for news than ever before.. the msm has completely lost the thinking adult in America.
and they won't get it back soon.

I happened to see the family of that heroic Seal on one of Fox's shows last night as I was wanting to get a hurricane update, and what was said by his father should be hammered into every voter's conscience before they go to the polls.

One of the issues that America faces is this early voting fiasco, that needs to be stopped immediately if not sooner.

A typical drone like Rick has probably already given his vote to the Devil already and looking to vote again.

Just look at the information on this traitor that is still being dragged out a bit at a time.

How many people took the two minutes to fill out that on line email to their elected representatives I gave a link for stopping this UN poll watching outrage?

I doubt very many will, but they will complain when it is too late and the UN with Homeland Security reinforcements are here counting the votes.

Do any of you think the Satanic forces will stop at mere voter fraud or even illegally seizing the ballots to insure a "private and secure" counting...

..don't bet your life on it- I give you Senator Al Frankin as example one.
... they have already shown no reluctance to have our servicemen murdered in cold blood for sheer political reasoning, what would stop them from attempting the fixing of an election?

This is the seventh game, there is no tomorrow if this one is lost.

proud said...

Been pondering who will be the biggest loser if Romney manages a win. Obama ?

Well officially Obama will be the "LOSER", but, without a doubt, the BIGGEST LOSER has to be:


(fluke rocks, ahahaha:-)

Jim McAllister said...


No question about it. Romney has to win. Fortunately he seems OK in the polls and even if he weren't the polls can be wrong as they were for Carter and Dukaikas.

I see this A. M. that the "Cincinnati Enquirer", another Gannett paper, endorses Romney.

You're right about Franken; that idiot could only get in via voter fraud. I remember they just kept re-counting until he won. What a joke Minnesota is.

Jim McAllister said...


I wonder what Pennypincher thought of that rocker Fluke when Fluke had 10 people show up to hear her speak in Reno.

In my many years on this planet, I thought I had seen some of the biggest losers there were but people like PP make them look like amateurs.

steve buzzardo said...

"How many people took the two minutes to fill out that on line email to their elected representatives I gave a link for stopping this UN poll watching outrage?"

I sent mine, this is the only news I could find about Arizona:

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is warning these U.N. observers that “they are subject to arrest if they are in the polling places.”

midnightsstaff said...

Great.. I really can't see Arizona letting those pinko's come in and count votes.

but they will try.

Good one for Bennett.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, Minnesota must be the most liberal state in the nation. In 1972 McGovern only won Minnesota in the election. Same thing in 1984. Mondale only won Minnesota. Must be the cold weather that freezes their brains.

PP definitely knows how to lose elections. She backs Obama while claiming to be a conservative Republican. The Republican Party should throw her out.

midnightsstaff said...

The Republican party leadership is about a fifty fifty split of a collection of idiots and cowards, many of the zealots filling both requirements.

The Red Menace is just representative of the "big tent" the liberals always advises them to become..after all things would go smooth as silk if only everyone agrees with them, no gridlock necessary.
..inconceivably the dribbling idiots take their advice,

..kind of hard to visualize her reaching across the aisle to the Democrat side seeing how she is right there with them.

proud said...

Jim 10 people is 9-3/4 more than were "captivated" or "inspired" by Penneypackers naive and moronic:

She's an spineless imbecile hiding behind a very pretty facade. A make believe person with NO core values or real take them tio the matt, beliefs...

Or in other words:


Just what the world is crying out for:



(maybe her name is too confusing? She's flipped and changed prettyu much everything she ever proffessed of being, Why not....Paula Boo-Boo? or maybe,.... Honey-Penny?

..this is the show I was watching last night that set me off..
..she went on like that for an hour- my kind of gal.

.."you don't deploy troops in harm's way without knowing what's going on"
really Leon?- ask any combat vet if that doesn't sound ridiculous, but that's our problem, we have these clowns making life and death decisions that involve real people's lives that have never known what it is to serve in that capacity.... it's not a game.

This woman knows the truth, a lot of people are finally waking up to what evil this administration really represents.

There are so many holes in this dog ate my homework fairy tale the Traitor in Chief is foisting, it's only a matter of time before a modern Woodward and Bernstine blow the doors off his murderous ways.

Congress had better get these two flag officers he fired over the crime committed into chambers before the administration has them eliminated like they did to the Seal team Six.

steve buzzardo said...

Obama takes all credit for sending in troops to kill 1 scumbag.
But wont take the blame for not sending in troops to save 4 Americans.

Here's a new song title for that commie bastard Neil Young: "Four Dead in Benghazi"

Rick Kepple said...

"Yeah... a song.. maybe we should all link hands and sing the Coke song eh?"

I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony! Yep. And everyone was singing it, lots of money was made and that's what I want.

People don't want perfection! They can't handle perfection! We stand on that wall with our guitars and guard this country. We'd rather you just applaud and the truth is that you can't handle PERFECTION! You're damn right I played my guitar!

Governor Romney can't be President. He's already a governor. He'd be President Governor Romney and that would just be stupid.

midnightsstaff said...

another full moon on the rise.

midnightsstaff said...

Speaking of..
.. the nearly full moon just rose over the little Estrellas.. and I have never noticed as many geese flying in this early since I have been here, there must be some pretty big storms pushing them south early this year.. I think they are right about that el nino wet winter we are supposed to be getting this year.

here's a cool link on the el nino we are having with a lot of facts and figures.

I have shot on Sacramento area duck blinds in late November and December with fewer birds in the air as there is here now.

midnightsstaff said...

People aren't taking the warnings seriously on the east coast, probably because of the Irene misfire..
But this one is going to leave a mark, all the weather blogs rate it as either destructive or catastrophic in nature, the consensus is this one is a true perfect storm..

I just called my bud in Penn. and he says it hasn't been more than a drizzle so far, I told him to get some oil lights and candles.. it could be a long recovery it looks like.
no good news there.

Jim McAllister said...


Having UN guys in here sounds typical of the sorry excuse we have for a family in the White House. Obama loves the UN since he wants a world government. Good job by Bennett; run those losers out of the country and O with them.

Jim McAllister said...


Minnesota is VERY LIBERAL, a lot of people from Scandinavia where liberalism rules.

They are an embarrassment to let an ass like Franken represent them.

Jim McAllister said...

Add Mike with Buzz to the above. I was actually answering his comment.

Jim McAllister said...


She's an spineless imbecile hiding behind a very pretty facade.

Seriously, do you think she is pretty?

midnightsstaff said...

This is how you show the nation you are a leader.. once again it's just his instincts that are giving the voters a clear choice this time- he appears to be putting the needs of a nation before politics..

and of course Obama looks small..

I think it's brilliant and admire the man's character and intelligence more every day.

it's about time we get someone who isn't a complete narcissist in the White House, someone who realizes there are more important things to America than himself.

midnightsstaff said...

Stricken!! immaterial and non germane to the discussion.. keep it classy people...

midnightsstaff said...

whoa.. they're going to close down the NY stock market tomorrow and maybe Tuesday as well.. they were originally going to just have electronic trading, but changed their minds due to safety concerns.. looks like they are taking it seriously..

I have a funny feeling about the way this storm is building, it has the potential of a true national disaster..

Jim McAllister said...


Congrats to them. Any team that wins 6 elimination games has my respect.

midnightsstaff said...

Maybe they should extend the season to have the World Series the same week as catchers and pitchers report..

Non stop baseball season.. just like Venezuela..

Looks like there is going to be some power outages and flooding along the coast, the interesting thing about this storm is the expected snowfall inland, parts of Ohio and Penn are supposed to be getting record snowfall and possible power outages due to wind.

..Reason 226 of "why I live in Arizona and not Buffalo"- as though I needed 225 others..

Rick Kepple said...

"Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett is warning these U.N. observers that 'they are subject to arrest if they are in the polling places.'”

Why is the United Nations observing our election? Is there something more crooked that we don't know? They're playing it like it's no big deal and the UN has been watching for several elections, but if that's so, then why are states making it a big deal this year?

Could someone please explain this, without insulting me?

Oh that's right. I'm being ignored by the intelligent rich people. Yes, that's the Republican party, all right! Ignoring the other classes ... that's the Republicans.

midnightsstaff said...

you are too stupid and corrupt to understand, so there is no sense discussing it with you Rick.

No.. we can't explain it to you any more than I can explain physics to my cat.
Socialist voting drones like you are used to wandering around in the dark- it's your choice in life.

Jim McAllister said...


I agree, the baseball season is too long. If the Series had gone 7 games it would have made it to November.

Those people in Detroit last night looked like they were dressed for Alaska.

The season should end on 8-31 with playoffs and WS in September but we know that will never happen with all the greed involved.. Instead, look for a couple more wild card teams next year. Maybe they can have the final game on Thanksgiving.

I agree also on AZ. I'm reading about the storm this morning as I look out my back window at the placid scene on the golf course with the rabbits and quail and a guy cutting the grass. High of 90 today, ho-hum.

They can keep the east coast and their storms.

midnightsstaff said...

that hurricane is at 943 mb still off shore and moving very slowly, and it's damn big.

That creates 90+ wind speeds headed directly to the most populated portion of the nation..
..this could be a real problem for the whole east coast.. at min, we will have some deaths, maybe lots.
I would sure hate to see the homeless and the poor dying over a late season hurricane.

Just wait until the Seattle, Bay area or Portland area gets wiped out by an overdue earthquake or tsunami with millions of deaths- and it will happen..

Arizona is a good choice on a lot of levels.
I am just glad I immigrated before they closed the border.

midnightsstaff said...

here is a very cool map of the nation's wind velocity and direction... it's one of the best I have seen.
record low barometric pressures are being recorded today, 931.1 mb is ridiculous.

There will probably be rioting and general lawlessness late this week in all the gun free zones up and down the east coast.

Remember the F. Scott Fitzgereld?- the swells on the Great Lakes are predicted to be in the thirty foot area, the storm on Nov.10 1975 was 60 mph winds and 12-18 ft. swells.

People had better take this storm seriously..

another good reason to live in Az.

midnightsstaff said...

from a former special ops blogger..

.."Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.

One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not "paint" a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station"

Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.

.."If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.

If one of the former Seals was actively "painting" a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!"

I didn't say it, an expert in these type of weapon systems did.
when Ty Woods targeted the mortar position, he was also illuminating his own position.. in normal circumstances there would have been immediate action taken by the firing platform.. it's instantaneous hell on earth- game over..
..but Obama said "Hold your fire"


proud said...

I'm hurt that middy only critiqued my "pretty" remark and ignored my "NO SIGN LEFT BEHIND" I thought it was funny, fact, ahaI am chuckling again, as I aha, type,ahahahaha,this:-) :-) :-0

For the record, I think she is stunning. I was extremely impressed with the conservative, patriotic values she espoused and the political passion she brought to the table....Likewise I was extremely disappointed when she lost one primary and changed her entire political belief system overnight! No genuine person could change what they believe that dramatically unless they never believed in the first place.

What the nation doesn't need is another political opportunist(at any level) willing to say or even believe whatever someone wants to hear just to get elected....

midnightsstaff said...

I thought it was Larry Rupp, he has been on my case about the same things lately.. now I feel bad about toilet papering his house Saturday night..

.. but it wasn't so bad, fortunately I missed and got one of his neighbors by mistake..

Your "no sign left behind" just irritated me because I didn't think of it myself.

anyway, commenting on looks really doesn't forward any argument, that is usually left for the libs..

..except when I call the Iranian Muslim Brotherhood mole Jarrett "batface"- that's ok.

As far as your last point, she might actually have a bright future in politics.

Jim McAllister said...

Why am I not surprised? I hope everyone remembers this on Nov. 6.

Jim McAllister said...


For the record, I think she is stunning.

Are we talking about the same woman? Throw some cold water in your face and re-assess.

Jim McAllister said...

I'd love to know what Jarrett has on him that gives her such power.

Are there photos? Eyewitness statements? Does she have the key to his sealed documents from the past?

Hopefully, after next Tuesday we won't give a damn other than to have some evidence to send him up the river.

steve buzzardo said...

Ty Woods father was interviewed by Laura Ingraham today, it is disgusting the way he was disrespected by both assholes Biden and Obama.

Anyone who still supports these 2 clowns for re-election has to be a pathetic moron.

With any luck the hurricane will take Washington D.C. and New York.

Jim McAllister said...




It was a great game with all the cold win and rain and Scutaro knocking in that winning run in the 10th.

The Giants deserve a lot of credit for never giving up when they were down and fighting back to win the Series.

It's nice to see from their celebration that they really care in spite of the millions they make.

proud said...

Id rather shower at Penn State

Than vote for Obama !

midnightsstaff said...

Watching that video from Atlantic City.. pretty amazing stuff-

But checking the comments, it went straight to 'when did you give the order to "stand down" mr. President?'

.. and no it wasn't me.. no one is even talking about the once in a hundred year storm, they are talking about the cover up and in doing so sending the message to the media to do it's job, I think the media is going to have to address this criminal act as soon as the storm subsides enough.

This hurricane is bad stuff, but the treasonous nature of the coward in chief is drowning out the storm- people are pretty pissed off..

whooie.. I am sure glad I am no where near that seaboard in this kind of weather.

midnightsstaff said...

bumper sticker worthy Steve..
haha. "rather shower at Penn State than vote for Obama".. great stuff.

Jim, I believe it's Jarrett who bank rolled,(money as wellas big money Chicago connections) incl Oprah), "The One's" ascendancy to the throne.

I'm not steve!

It's only October. Well, at least my bunker is done in time. It's not much, but it will do.

I guess there are grocery store shelves empty. It was supposed to take three days to do that, but so much for their predictions.

Now the storm is turning east, probably down through Missouri. As long as it's gone before deer hunting season.

I'm hoping for an artic clipper to make several feet of snow this winter. The Day After Tomorrow storms. Think Biblical. Pretty cool, huh?

midnightsstaff said...

...this one's going to suck, the power will have to be off for up to ten days while they clean up the underground I suppose..

Sometimes we forget how good we got it out here in beautiful Arizona.

Mike Slater said...

And the Cardinals lose again 24-3. They only had 7 yards running the football in the whole game. In the 2nd half they threw the ball on every down. Pathetic.

Jim McAllister said...


Just keep your back to the wall at Penn State and don't bend over if you drop the soap!

I never forget. I never bitch about the weather here even in summer. I have no need for the east coast.

Jim McAllister said...


I watched the whole game. Cards are lucky SF took it easy in the second half. It was a case of total control.

I think Whisenhunt is in trouble. he is 44-44 here and is hanging on from the Super Bowl game which they wouldn't have made if not for Warner.

Skelton and Kolb will get them nowhere and, as you mentioned, they have zero running game.

I love Dennis Miller. Good slam on Bloomberg. It's embarrassing that he calls himself a Republican.

That Atlantic City footage is amazing. I spent many a hot day on the beach and on the Boardwalk as a kid on summer vacation.

this is some amazing video of the transformers exploding all across NYC last night.. it looks like the city was under a mortar attack.. looks very similar.

The generalized, indiscriminate looting will commence citywide as soon as the NYPD mobilizes- of course the real looting has been done on Wall Street for years leaving little to plunder.

Shouldn't the community organizers be getting organized pretty soon?- you know the get out to vote crowd.

The freeshit army is a bit shell shocked at the storm right now, but their generationally reinforced, finely honed innovative redistributive instincts runs strong in the city's dna so the creative instincts will kick in pretty soon, maybe a cover of arson will add enough confusion to carry out the compulsory looting at their leisure and righting some more of their long standing injustices at the hands of Whitey and the Koreans can be achieved.

The Colt 45 will start flowing as soon as the liberators can strike a blow for the common man at a few package stores- once the looting starts in earnest everyone will be wanting to shop early for the best bargains.

..this might be a good time for a cash for guns program doncha think?

I also think it would be a good strategy for the R&R team to buy up a few Budweiser trucks fully loaded and abandon them in Brooklyn to sort of prime the pump and get the ball rolling.

But keep in mind that even with a hurricane rolling through town this was still a less destructive and overall safer night than an average weekend bar hopping in Shitcago- it's not as bad as they are claiming.. after all you can still kayak in the subway system but as mayor Bloomberg warned, carrying a light down there only makes you a target.

Yeah, hopefully those Wall Street flunkies stealing America's wealth got swept out to sea with their corruption.

I hate corrupt people, unless they're corrupt for the right reason - Patriotism.

Maybe if we're lucky, some of those Atlantic City casinos were destroyed too. They can build churches there instead. Let SN sing in a church instead of a casino. It's time for her to grow up and be responsible.

I'm a real, honest to God, responsible man and I make the rest of y'all look like welfare cases. Y'all claim to make profit, but all you do is exploit people.

this is the "Christian" that Rick and Hugo Chavez is cheer leading for..

I can't believe that the administration hasn't ordered this utube video down yet.

Love the youtube of our muslim in chief.

I'm sure the libs get teary eyed with emotion when they see their great leader tell about his past.

It's like a bad dream.

Jenny is a 13-year-old 8th grader who's been interested in politics for a couple of years. She was confused about the claims of the Democrats and the claims of the Republicans. So, she decided to look at the facts and do a report card for President Barack Obama and one for Governor Mitt Romney. She compared them and now presents her findings in this video.

If she survives this might be another Mia Love in the makings..
I imagine she will get a lot of hate mail over this calling her a Sellout, an Oreo, Aunt Jemima with the usual classy leftist bile .. but I have the feeling she will be able to deal with it..

Moore has a new campaign video out.. disgusting as usual..

..we don't have a political problem in this nation as much as we have a morality problem.

You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing
which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
extremely vast for me. I am looking forward for
your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hold of it!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something to possibly get folk's attention?
I mean "EXTRA! EXTRA! DON'T FAINT; AZ REPUBLIC ENDORSES ROMNEY! (Sunday 10-21-12) edition)" is kinda plain.
You might look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.

Anne's gown was red, with an impressive train and meticulous side bow. The ensemble akin to several various strings of beads is allowed for each hand. She told i am what I wanted was to absolve myself, and that she couldn't do
that particular for me. SGST on imports should
also prove to be levied and collected by the link.
