Middy was kind enough yesterday to post the clip of Michelle Obama wearing her new Walmart inspired 1968 Diana Ross wig while she stuffed her face at the inauguration.  In case you missed it, click here.  

She reminded me of some of the guys I knew in the Air Force who would eat like it was going out of style.  Meanwhile, she thinks school kids should starve on her idiotic diet.  When I say “school kids”, I am omitting her kids who eat hearty meals at their private school.

We now find out that Beyonce faked the National Anthem with lip synchronization.  That’s pretty gutless; I guess she hasn't the voice she thought she had.  Yes, Beyonce, you would have no career without electronic assistance.

My wife Barb taught elementary school for 22 years and draws an interesting analogy of how liberals might like to apply their philosophy to student grades.  Obama would probably applaud this method using his tired statement of how “It’s only fair” just like “it’s only fair that the rich pay a little more.”

The liberal grading system:  Child number one studies his butt off to get an “A”.  Child number two does nothing and gets an “F”.  Fear not, child number two!  We will take half of child number one’s “A” and give you a “C” so you can pass.  The other half of child number one’s “A” also becomes a “C” which he retains so he can also pass.

That's OK kid, have a nice nap, the good
students will cover for you.  Maybe!
What is the lesson learned?  The “A” student now realizes that no matter how many “A’s” he gets, he will lose half his grade to the loser kids who do nothing.  He now figures, “Hell, if I get an “A” I will only lose half of it to that kid sleeping at the desk next to me.  Like him, I’m going to do nothing and take my guaranteed “C”.

The “F” student loves this system.  He can sleep in class every day and still pass with a “C”.  Even if he decides to better himself by studying hard and getting an “A”, he knows he will only lose half of it to some other loser like himself so why bother?

The above is a good example of what Obama would love to have you think “is only fair.”  To him fairness is for someone to take risks, work long hours, become successful, and then give a large amount of what they earned to those without the same ambition.  It’s a wonder that anyone has initiative anymore.

In case you are someone who has initiative and is feverishly looking for a job in the still bad economy, I would advise you to take your resume very seriously.  If ever the term “watch your p’s and q’s” was in effect it is on a resume.  Bad grammar can get you tossed in the trash in a hurry.

With the number of resumes flooding employers, they have to be narrowed down somehow and grammatical errors are one way to do that according to CareerBuilder.

Checklist:  Know your homophones!  Those are words that are spelled differently but sound the same.  Too, to, and two are good examples.  I see a lot of writing where people don’t know what to do with “too.”

Keep tenses correct, proofread, and proofread again.  This is something I always do with the blogs.  If you find a mistake, it isn't because I'm not TRYING to get it right.

et tu James?

to, too, two, tu... yeah you might have a point..

I couldn't produce a resume if I had to.

I only dated smart girls in High School, they did the homework while I played football

Nothing to do with a resume, but that darn auto-correct seems to be my worst enema.

Your column on Walter Winchell was interesting. I do remember him, I'm that old!

Did you see the witch roll her eyes when BO was talking to Boehner? No class!

As far as the rest of the BS, I watched the Military Channel and read about his BS proposals in the paper.

Glo, Degenerate English Major said...

Resumes are critical, and they need to have at least valid spelling and grammar/syntax. I have reviewed resumes in various job positions while we were looking for applicants, and some of them made me (a degenerate English major) gag. I actually have a side business called 'Wordsmithing by Glo' where I update and/or create resumes. I've had about a dozen clients, all referrals, and last week I created a brand new first-time resume for a young man getting out of the Marines after a 5-year hitch. He was so amazed and appreciative. I hope he makes it, and at least I have the satisfaction that I helped someone get a start in his civilian professional life.

As far as that grading curve, it sukks the big one. You should get the grade YOU EARNED, period. But, that demented thinking also holds true with corporate America, where you can only have a certain number of excellent performers, average performers, and below-average performers. You may have a full team of fantastic employees, but they won't all be getting that deserved high rating. Pathetic. Welcome to the new America, not the one from our own generation or the ones before it.

Jim McAllister said...


I've done a couple resumes many years ago. I had a manual for writing them which helped.

Besides the obvious mistakes to avoid, they always strongly advised keeping them short and to the point.

If an employer has a bunch of them to read the last thing he needs is for them to duplicate "War and Peace" in length.

Jim McAllister said...


If I would have been good enough to make the team, I would have done the same thing.

Jim McAllister said...


enema, huh? LOL

Jim McAllister said...


"Wordsmithing By Glo" huh? Great name. Why am I not surprised that you never let any grass grow under your feet, Glo?

I've always admired the way you move on when there is adversity rather than cry and bitch about it.

Too many people today are glad to whine and not accept the challenge of starting over. Maybe it's that New England "never give up" mentality that you possess.

Yes, we are in a different America now; a sensitive place where we must be careful not to say anything that might be "hurtful" to someone.

Hopefully, we will cycle through that nonsense after the next four years.

midnightsstaff said...

I thought it was Emma's sister.
Admit it, the whole thing stinks and quite frankly remains for the most part an enigma..

My vision for America has been a return to great herds of indignant, indigenous indigents once again roaming free as God intended..
(and they say math is hard)

...yes I have a dream.

Glo, Yankee Die-Hard said...

Yup, Jim, we Yankees are stubborn coots. We never give up. Those who do usually move to California ...

Glo said...

Middy: LoveloveLOVE your alliteration! :)

I read both articles.

Walter Winchell....good stuff

"First things first, but not necessarily in that order."

Jim McAllister said...


Middy has come a long way in the last few years.

It's not easy to go from illiterate to alliterative.

Jim McAllister said...


Speaking of California, golfer Phil Mickelson said yesterday that he may leave California because of the big increase in taxes.

He used to live here at Gainey Ranch when he got out of ASU. Great golfer, class guy: I'd like to see him move back to Scottsdale.

Jim McAllister said...

Thanks, Alan.

I love historical stuff and Winchell sure qualifies as a great character of the past.

He was a prototypical Damon Runyon type from the old days of New York and the Great White Way.

Burt Lancaster starred in "Sweet Smell of Success" in 1957; very much based on the life of Winchell.

midnightsstaff said...

I didn't even know I owned an alliteration- should it have green eyes?

Actually they say English is a complex language, but being born into it and too lazy to learn another I have to take their word.
Threw, through... yeah they do sound similar yet have different meanings, but as with the Hawaiians who have many names for the color blue I reckon all languages are equally abstruse.

midnightsstaff said...

I guess Phil had someone get to him so he backed off that rant he went on and apologized to the GoldenUnicornState for dis'in them from the pro shop.

..hey, a man's got to learn his limits.

midnightsstaff said...

I resemble that remark Jim, haha..
Years ago I was a voracious reader, my favorite author was James Mitchner, a screaming democrat from Buck County-
I think I read nearly all of his novels, he brings an element of scope to his work that is somewhat unique.

Another good one is James Clavelle author of Whirlwind- which is a great story based on the Iranian revolution in the 70's.

don't use those big words on me Jim, you know how it upsets me- and when I get upset I eat.

But to the point, at one time the Raiders had a motto "Commitment to Excellence" which everyone understood.. today I doubt many sheeple could explain exactly what a concept like that means.

Jim McAllister said...


I'm glad I was born into English. It must be hard to learn with words that are spelled the same but have different meanings based on the context.

My mother was French-Canadian from Montreal so I've had some experience with French. It has its exceptions but nothing like English.

Jim McAllister said...

Phil is a good guy and one of the best behaved guys I have ever seen in any sport.

He has apologized for his statement but I think he will leave anyway. He mentioned his tax amount and it is huge. I wouldn't be surprised to see him move back to Scottsdale. He lived here at Gainey Ranch after graduation from ASU in 1991.

He is also involved in a golf course that he helped design in North Scottsdale's McDowell Mountain Ranch.

Jim McAllister said...

Barb is a voracious reader while I am a bathroom and before bed reader.

She has read some Mitchner. A bit too long for me just like Tolstoy.

I'm currently reading some mystery novels by a guy named Arthur Upfield who was born in the UK but grew up in Australia.

The protagonist is a half caste white-aborigine detective inspector named Napoleon Bonaparte. Great local color and Australian terminology combined with mystery.

I highly recommend.

Jim McAllister said...

One has to look a while today to find someone who understands excellence and integrity.

There are a lot of small minds combined with small attention spans and bad manners out there.

nativekentuckian said...

Speaking of grammatical errors.......are some of the commentors referring to James Albert Michener?.....The author who penned such works as "Adventures in Paradise".....(just wondering)

Jim McAllister said...


You have a sharp eye. I confess that I misspelled Mr. MICHENER's name as did Middy.

Thanks for pointing that out as I always try to avoid such mistakes. Unfortunately, this one slipped by.

Chalk one up for the great state of Kentucky!

Rick Kepple said...

I watched Kelly Clarkson singing a song. I like her. A girl who made it to the top and she's a sweety in my opinion.

Did anyone else but folks in Missouri catch NBC during the inauguration talking about Romney and Obama both working to build the "world government," and my roommate has a DVR thing. We replayed that a few times in disbelief. They just said it like they were talking about fishing. Like it was NOTHING!

The shrink and I used to have some really good conversations and all the government has to do is NOTHING. Let people be people and write laws in reaction to their misbehavior.

Bernie Madoff proved rich folks can't be trusted. Plus dictators illegally invested in him opening the door to a bitch slappy by the Muslim Brotherhood and they are not actually real pro-Islam, mainstream wise. More like CIA version.

President Obama in a church on MLK day like it's his roots. Like some novel playing out. Like foreshadowing and metaphors. A statement. Everything was so very chorographed. Yeah, misspelled it. Don't care.

I'm aiming for a trip overseas. Sai Pan sounds nice. Maybe Australia. It sounds better than saying, Missouri. More exotic.

McAllister, Jim McAllister ... sounds better than Kepple in the spy game. And he has hair!

Rick Kepple said...

Here Jimmy. "An Unexpected Visitor," directed by Nick. Yeah, we just let him run with the script and I followed his directions for the camera angles.

BTW, Nick is a liberal. Dale and I are conservatives. It's not easy ...

A lot of people do films, but we want ORIGINALITY!

In the last film, we experimented with lighting, angles, more. It's like writing literature, in a way. Cutting out scenes to improve the flow. I would love to do dual screens on phone calls, but I haven't figured out that program quite yet.

Nick was so proud. He edited the video is just ONE HOUR! I take DAYS! But then his video would not work properly and he had some really good ideas that I adopted in the final cut and had to figure out how to make fractional snips.

The one scene where he says he's changed took about four hours to edit alone! Think of it as slicing tiny little slices of film and putting it back together!

Still, I am decades behind Hollywood filmmakers! Definitely no Johnno Zee (Ozarks filmmaker, zombie movies)

Mike Slater said...

Jim,I must have missed the coronation of Obama. I guess I was too busy to care.

Jim McAllister said...


It looks like a nice mid-winter day there in the hinterlands of Missouri. Brings back memories of my days there in the 60s.

Good to see you guys enjoying ham and beans and Starbucks' coffee.

Tell Nick to get a haircut and a shave and drop those emotions down a notch if he goes job hunting.

Love the Stevie background tunes.

Jim McAllister said...


I couldn't watch it either. The fact that he is president magnifies the fact that we have a lot of ignorant people in this country. The guy is a total embarrassment.

I'm glad he is taking on the NRA for all his loser liberal supporters. That is where the Peter Principle will really kick in.

Michelle is an embarrassment. I'm glad that they got her on tape stuffing her ugly face. If I was Boehner I would have told her where to get off.

Rick Kepple said...

A country star friend on Facebook just gave me a tip to talk to a friend of his in video production to learn from him.

Apparently Nick's video inspired some groans large enough to cause Nashville to teach me different AND QUICK! LOL

That's pretty cool.

Thanks Jim. I'll tell Nick. Thanks for your words.

Rick Kepple said...

I just want to thank people for the very kind comments sent to me regarding this video. Yeah, I told Nick that he needs a haircut, but that's kind of part of the crazy character. Plus he's broke. "An Unexpected Visitor" and my little company produced it. I think it cost me five bucks.

Thanks everyone!

From: Allen D

Hi Jim,

I have read both of your columns and you have done a ‘bang-up’ job. And I really liked the Walter Winchell piece for I used to listen to the man on Radio. Remember Radio?

From 1958 when I moved out of my Mom’s place after high school, I lived for years in a succession of small sro (single room occupancy) hotels, slowly working my way up to better and better accommodations as my salary and fortunes advanced. I worked days and went to college at night; yet still managed to enjoy a world of friends, a few celebrities and the like. It was called the American Way when I did it.

However, I could not afford a TV set of my own (the hotels charged a $1 a night rental fee), so I listened to the Radio. One of the shows I enjoyed most was the Walter Winchell Show. Loved it! The man had the kind of guts and sincerity you don’t see nowadays in the ‘ultra high paid’ media flubs.

Keep writing Jim, it’s great!

PROUD said...

You guys see where the NFL fined that candy-ass, prim modonna, Brady $10K, for the dirty kick / slide he pulled against the ravens?

midnightsstaff said...

Was there a penalty called ?
I always wonder about these league fines with no penalty called.

..that was a pretty stupid and dangerous move for him, those guys break things.

midnightsstaff said...

Leadership... women are now going to be able to serve on the front lines, wait until the draft for our next war starts..

this directive is specifically designed to water down our military...further.

This is our leadership today- and no Walter Winchell's around to complain, just a battalion of P. Morgan and Candy Crowleys each one cheering his daily flatulence.

Jim McAllister said...


I remember that play. Brady is a punk who is frustrated that the Pats can't win the big one anymore.

I think it stared a few years ago when Eli Manning and the Giants whipped his butt at Jiffy pop in the Super Bowl.

This should be a pretty good Super Bowl. I usually don't even watch it but there is some intrigue to this match up. I'm anxious to see how Kaepernick does.

Jim McAllister said...


The NFL is turning into a wimp league especially since they are getting lawsuits thrown at them by former players and their families.

It's a tough business and those guys are happy to make the big bucks but when injuries occur, they want to start suing. Hence, we don't see many kickoffs run back any more among other things.

When they get rid of the kickoff completely is when I quit watching.

Jim McAllister said...


My jaw dropped when I saw that about women on the front lines.

It all starts at the top with that sorry excuse we have for a president.

What happened to the America we knew? How could these losers ever gain control?

Jim McAllister said...

I have been fighting the flu which is why I didn't even turn on the computer yesterday.

I feel a bit better today.

PROUD said...

Would have served Brady right if Reed would have "accidentally' broken his leg...after all, that little weenie left it hanging out asking for it. Absolutely right, pretty stupid, getting you leg rammed the opposite of the way it's designed to go could have been a career ending injury for a q-back....

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah.. I gotta go to a eye ears and throat specialist this afternoon to hopefully figure out what this stuff is that a dose of zpack and Levaquin will not touch..

I've been feeling like I am coming down with something for months now..

.."BTW, Nick is a liberal. Dale and I are conservatives. It's not easy"..
That's a big laugh, you don't just decide one day to become conservative - it's not the same as registering as a Republican.. I know of a lot of Republicans who in fact are straight up statists, merely hating jews, queers and anyone not like you makes you a bigot not a libertarian minded conservative. you are just another ignorant polyp clogging up the diseased alimentary tract of a once great nation.

Everyone like you should be removed from the voting roles like we do to other felons and the mentally incompetent, you are simply too ignorant and corrupted to cast an informed vote.

I am in a good mood this morning as you can see.

PROUD said...

A few weeks ago, the wife and I got flu shots for the first time in our lives....So far, so good... no illness

midnightsstaff said...

So in other words you have no idea if the vaccine works or not.. same as if you did not take the vaccine.

On the other hand I got to admit that I didn't catch Polio or Smallpox either, everyone got those inoculations back then..
I got them probably because my mom had survived a bout of Smallpox from living near a diseased Indian reservation in Oklahoma in the twenties..

At one time we trusted the various federal offices such as the CDC implicitly, today I along with millions don't trust the system at all and that's including doctors and that's not counting the Native Americans who should distrust the government at every turn- after all look how the government has treated them.
Blacks have no bitch whatsoever compared to what the NA community has suffered at the hands of the federal government.

Just when has the federal government gone on an orchestrated killing spree/internment camp program towards the blacks?

You sure can't say that about the way our government has treated the indigenous inhabitants or Japanese or German American's in the early 40's.

The Black whiners simply need to grow up.

PROUD said...

Middy, I got the flu shot this year because I have a (minimally invasive),back surgery date coming up, one I have had to wait for nearly two months for. The last thing I wanted was to get the flu and have to cancel my surgery. I figured it was cheap insurance, (which my insurance paid for so I guess it was doubly cheap) ...My doctor told me nobody gets the flu from the shot, (they use a dead virus instead of a live one) but, coincidentally some folks may still come down with the flu as the shot takes two weeks to become effective. (over 65 they have an HD version, it's not any stronger, just formulated to go easier on older immune systems)

Jim McAllister said...


Between Belichick and Brady, the Pats are not very likable.

Jim McAllister said...


I finally went to the doctor yesterday and got a prescription for Tamiflu which is supposed to be the latest thing to fight the flu.

A lot of coughing up junk and a headache but It's better today. Barb was hit a lot harder with it but she is a bit better today.\

"ignorant polyp clogging up the diseased alimentary tract?" LOL

Jim McAllister said...


Good decision on the flu shot. I wish I would have gotten one but I've never had the flu and figured I am invincible I guess.

I'm not as sick as Barb but uncomfortable enough that I logged some extra time in bed.

Jim McAllister said...


The last few years have not been too kind to you physically with the heart thing and your accident up north, now the back surgery.

Take care my friend. It's a good thing you are a tough guy!

Jim McAllister said...


That's sure true about the American Japanese during the 40s.

A guy named Jamie Ford wrote a great story about that in 2009 called "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" I highly recommend it.

During WW1 in Cincinnati, they changed a lot of German street names because of the war.

It's all about the paranoia

midnightsstaff said...

That's not the direction I was going, my problem is how can R&D effectively shotgun a prophylactic for a mutating virus?

The virus evolves and the vaccine created has to be using last season's flu to create the antibodies necessary..
They are by definition targeting something that has evolved.

Anyway, I wash my hands a lot and stay away from crowds, it has worked better for me than the damn shot has, or at least no worse.
..also I recommend not picking your nose without cleaning your nose finger first, especially under the fingernail just how mom told me - after all there simply is no substitute for good hygiene... right?

Actually I'm convinced that licking the family dog's lips would do about as much as a seasonal flu shot, maybe more!, and after all in the end isn't sampling the dog bowl pretty much the same approach these labs are using?

I realize that actually licking a dogs lips could be a bit much for some out there or maybe it's not- (dog owners tend to be funny like that) so I suggest instead drinking from the dogs bowl or wherever he drinks from, now doesn't that make it more palatable?

As usual no charge for the advice as I feel it's my public duty.

midnightsstaff said...

No joking around "Formerly" Proud, I will pray for your complete recovery on this back operation, they usually go pretty well, but nothing in life is guaranteed except, well you know.

Now the EEN guy says I have to get a cat scan..

I can tell you right now she is not going to go for this.

PROUD said...

Thanks guys, of all the things I've done to myself (broken arms, legs, collar bone from racing plus Jim's list), this is by far the most painful. The disk between L4/5 has shifted, I have a bone on bone situation on one side, and the disk bulged out to severely pinch my sciatic nerve, just for shits and grins, my body decided to test my pain threshold by developing a bone spur into the old sciatic as well. The past couple years I have kept things somewhat in check with epidural steroid shots, but those no longer prove effective, so the past two months waiting for surgery, I have had pain 24/7 from my lower back, across my right butt, down the right leg into my ankle. I guess if they bring back 'Queen For A Day', that story should land me a crown?...Until then, I will continue treating the condition with the only thing that helps, Crown (on the rocks) Hows that for irony?

midnightsstaff said...

"You're gonna need a bigger bottle"...
Back agony sucks... mine is still in relatively good shape but I have had some times it eliminates doing anything but laying there in pain.

I have had friends getting the disc fused and other god awful surgeries- it's amazing what they can do, I had that sciatica pain once- it took physical therapy with traction to get rid of it.

Construction beats the hell out of a body, I am surprised with all the tilt up construction I did I can even walk now..

When I bailed out to the Dept. from a life of construction I did it so I wouldn't have to be looking for work in my 70's- best decision so far I have ever made.

Sure feel sorry for some of those guys I used to work with who probably haven't worked for a couple of years now or are part time construction gypsies at my age.

.."All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him.
If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact;
if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both.
One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them.
All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives.
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it.
And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are."
HL Mencken.

Jim McAllister said...


I remember "Queen For a Day" with host Jack Barry being on TV in the afternoon in the 1950s.

It seems like they always gave a washer and dryer to some poor gal who had misfortune.

Crown on the rocks sounds better. Keep us in touch on how you are doing.

Best to Leslie.

Rick Kepple said...

I interviewed Dell Mack on film today. I'm the only one he'll talk to on camera about these things.

It's kind of humbling.

midnightsstaff said...

You probably have good reason for humility Rick, actually it's the only way of ever gaining control over one's life.
I suggest you pursue humility or humbleness if you please, study it, take it home for the night, try to get on first name basis with it as much as you can if you ever want to truly succeed.

When the natural uneasiness that grips the heart of a man who dares to contemplate the vastness of the night time sky gives way to the realization that things really are in control just not necessarily your own control, you might find the secret you hold from yourself.

Just leave the bombastic, over the top hubris to professionals like me, you see Rick I am used to it and quite proficient.

midnightsstaff said...

.."No charges will be filed against 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a San Francisco hotel early on Jan. 13."

Read more here:

Well as usual it's hard to ignore the gang infested NFL covering up for one of it's own..
Hopefully Ray Lewis will make it through a couple of more weeks before getting wrapped up in another murder..

..yes, these are the hero's of our future leaders.
OJ was framed.

Rick Kepple said...

Middy, a fan of Fredrick Douglas? Not according to the way he writes.

"Properly speaking, there are in the world no such men as self-made men. That term implies an individual independence of the past and present which can never exist." - Fredrick Douglas

Control over one's life ... genius unbridled. Scary thought.

Rick Kepple said...

"I had that sciatica pain once- it took physical therapy with traction to get rid of it."

The doctors told me NO MORE TRACTION. FIND ANOTHER CAREER! And so I chose writing and now, hopefully film. I thank God for it though.

It's a drag to need roommates, Middy. I remember a time when I could hike the Rocky Mountains for weeks at a time!

If you think about it, some day people will write about our conversations. Maybe documentaries. It could be required education!

So rant on, Middy! Rant on CJ and Jimmy! Create something for the scholars to argue about of WHY we wrote what we did.

It gives professors something to do.

midnightsstaff said...

Anyone notice that the bath house queen got his ass handed to him on the unconstitutionality of the appointment he made claiming congress was adjourned?

That means nearly a whole year of illegal decisions are now nullified and the courts don't seem finished with his criminality..

.."The Obama administration is expected to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court. But if the ruling stands, it means that hundreds of decisions issued by the board over more than a year would be invalid. It also would leave the five-member labor board with just one validly appointed member, effectively shutting it down. The board is allowed to issue decisions only when it has at least three sitting members"

Haha.. this "Constitutional authority" won't last the next four years- the courts and legislature are finally figuring out what it means to have someone declare themselves King..
book it.

Jim McAllister said...


I missed that about Crabtree.

What a bunch of loser these guys are; it's no wonder I don't take sports that serious anymore. Who want to root for a bunch of loser like those guys.

Probably the funniest thing about these sex crimes is that these guys have plenty of groupies who would go ion the sack at the snap of their fingers but they have to shoot at the ones that don't want to go.

Ir must be the challenge they want. Idiots!

Let's add another loser to that list along with OJ, Crabtree, and Lewis. I forget his name and I won't waste time looking it up but he was the wide receiver for the Giants a few years ago who shot himself in the leg in a NY nightclub. I think he did a year for it; not long enough.

Jim McAllister said...


I really had a good laugh reading about the NLRB thing and the big O.

However, do you really think the Supremes will uphold that ruling? After obamacare; I seriously doubt it. He obviously owns the court after that incident with Roberts.

I hope I'm wrong; I'd love to see someone derail the SOB.

midnightsstaff said...

It's not just other team's players, it's the whole damn league.

Green Bay has a running back named Benson who is just as big of a turd as any of them and Waldon should be in prison for his many criminal acts as well..

But the NFL doesn't give a damn about the sport as much as the short term gains they make by promoting these thugs as wholesome community leaders.

...the whole thing is a joke and they are going to join the NBA as a permanent laughing stock for any decent person- right now the only fans for basketball are either in prison or headed there- the NFL is right behind.

midnightsstaff said...

Who knows if they will or will not.. but the tide is turning on him already..
I think he is going to spend the next term fighting impeachment proceedings and end up in a Watergate type administration..

Yes the court is corrupt but if they allow this to stand they become totally irrelevant- read the notes from the ruling...$file/12-1115-1417096.pdf

.."The Constitution’s
separation of powers features, of which the Appointments Clause is one, do not simply protect one branch from another.
See Freytag, 501 U.S. at 878.
These structural provisions serve to protect the people, for it is ultimately the people’s rights that suffer when one branch encroaches on another.
As Madison explained in Federalist No. 51, the division of power between the branches forms part of the “security [that] arises to the rights of the people.” The Federalist No. 51, supra, at 320.
Or as the Supreme Court held in Freytag, “The structural interests
protected by the Appointments Clause are not those of any one branch of Government but of the entire Republic.” 501 U.S. at
In short, nothing in 5 U.S.C. § 5503 changes our view that the original meaning of “happen” is “arise.”

and.. most importantly..

.."The power of a written constitution lies in its words.
It is those words that were adopted by the people.
When those words speak clearly, it is not up to us to depart from their meaning in favor of our own concept of efficiency, convenience, or
facilitation of the functions of government. In light of the
extensive evidence that the original public meaning of “happen”

Jim, these are direct quotes from the opinion notes of the ruling.. it doesn't get much clearer than this.. and America can thank Mark Levin and his organization for pushing this down the commie's throat.

Go to that link I provided and read it for yourself.

midnightsstaff said...

One parting shot and then I'm done- does anyone have any idea what the last mission for General George Custer was?
hint.. (to confiscate guns from the Sioux.)

.."On Sunday, 28 December, Craft learned that Big Foot's band had been intercepted and was camped on Wounded Knee Creek, where Col. James W. Forsyth, commander of the famous Seventh Cavalry, planned to disarm them. Gen. John R. Brooke, directing the operation from Pine Ridge Agency, was well aware of the favorable influence any Black Robe would have over restless Indians. Earlier that month he had sent Father John Jutz, the Jesuit missionary at Holy Rosary Mission, to negotiate with Two Strike and others in the Stronghold. Jutz brought the Sicangu chief back to the agency for a council with Brooke, and by mid-December almost a thousand of his people had come in peaceably. Brooke hoped Father Craft could be similarly persuasive in the disarming of the Big Foot's band"

from the book.. "Father Francis M.Craft, Missionary to the Sioux" by Thomas W. Foley..

page 28.

Jim McAllister said...


Speaking of the Wounded Knee era, here is a great clip from "Little Big Man" (1971) with Dustin Hoffman and the great Chief Dan George.

Dan was a classic in this film.

It runs 6:19. I love the final minute where they are going back down the hill and the chief talks about Snake Woman,

Someone call ChuckyouSchumer and DianFrankenstein and tell them they can start with Compton when they start taking guns from people..

If you carry some protection in Clownafornia you are a criminal, but if you don't you are as good as dead in some parts of that sorry ass land of confusion.

Give me an update on how that operation goes.

Mike Slater said...

Jim. you're thinking of that idiot Plaxico Buress. He played college ball at Michigan State. Not the brightest bulb in the closet.

Ever notice that the majority of those in the NBA and NFL that are always in trouble are black?

Jim McAllister said...


Yeah, that's the guy: Plaxico Burress.

Dumb as a post and he has lots of company with other idiots just like himself.

I guess these guys feel that the law doesn't include them. I love it when they lock them up for a nice stretch.

My only regret is that rat Vick got out as soon as he did. They should have done to him what he did to those dogs.

Rick Kepple said...

It would figure that I'm old now, when the world is going to hell. The young men fight the fights and the old guys live in the Missouri Ozarks and let the city folks deal with it.

Sooner or later, the disposable lighter runs out. The tin shack in the woods ... all spiders are inedible ... dogs are best used for hunting, not eating ... cats are good hunting companions ...

Middy's not making it up. A court did find that President Obama overstepped his authority and that will have consequences.

Meanwhile back on the farm, the film, "Stay in Time," is uploading. The story of Dell Mack. Video 1. It's specifically made for the portable device audience.

Sixty seven percent of viewers are using those cellphones, iPads, iPhones, etc.

I want a boat. A big fricking boat. And I wanna borrow my girlfriend's private jet. My friends and I want to go see a movie ... in London.

midnightsstaff said...

Bullshit.. if you say I'm not making that up then I'm calling bullshit..

this is the link to Mark's Friday show, he explains in great detail the mechanics of what just happened.. it truly is a turn for the better and probably will lead to a confrontation.

midnightsstaff said...

oh yeah.. he gets right in to it and pretty much covers it in the first twenty minutes.. the rest is just blah blah Constitution blah blah blah...

this guy really knows the document..

Rick Kepple said...

"Stay in Time: The story of Dell Mack," a film by Rick Kepple.

It's my first documentary and I can see areas of improvement for "Stay in Time: Dell Mack and Ray Carson," and make a bunch of videos about the music legends who know all the legends and it's all so very normal.

A church pastor was hoping all the Rockabillies could get together, including Dolly Parton. Rockabilly seems to be making a comeback.

Actually, I'm just proscrastinating. Thinking. There's this free app to make EVERYTHING into mobile stuff and 67 percent of a views are from cell phones, iPads, etc. so it's possible that this year, my company might take off.

Plus I think I found a manager to run the thing and she's gorgeous too, which helps. Gifted.

Anyway, back to work. Today it's America. Today, I can create whatever I wish and it's Constitutionally legal.

Tomorrow, the tanks could be in the road and all the writers get shot. Such are civil wars.

Jim McAllister said...


Levin is great: I'm glad he is on our side.

He explains the situation in easy to understand terms.

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah.. too bad no one is listening, what America suffers from is not an information shortage but a curiosity shortage..

Only getting your face rubbed in the asphalt will pique that curiosity with some types.

.."Just because you do not take an
interest in politics doesn't mean
politics won't take an interest
in you."

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I see our old buddy Bodo Diehn is going to be on azcvoices. I hope he allows comments unlike that little liberal McClellan.

steve buzzardo said...

thats why Levin is called "The Great One"
"Chuckyschmucky" and "Frankenfeinstein" not only do you learn but you Laugh your ass off listening to the master.

steve buzzardo said...

Yeah I want to see Obozo go into the gang infested neighborhoods of Chicago and talk to the gangbangers about giving up their guns, before I even listen to his crap about gun control.

Jim McAllister said...


I saw that on Bozo. Just what we need there; another dumb ass liberal.

It's a good thing we have Jim Barber, Tom Patterson, and me or it would be all liberal.

Jim McAllister said...


It looks like several Democrats in the Senate are telling Obama to shove it on gun control.

Those guys are from rural areas with a lot of guns and they want to guard against losing their soft overpaid jobs.

Middy and i were also talking about the NLRB mess Obama is in. It's a great thing and may really put this guy on his ass. One can only hope.

midnightsstaff said...

From the Weekly Standard...
.."President Barack Obama pledged this morning in his weekly radio address to continue to crackdown on "irresponsible behavior."

"Here in America, we know the free market is the greatest force for economic progress the world has ever known. But we also know the free market works best for everyone when we have smart, commonsense rules in place to prevent irresponsible behavior," Obama began.

"That’s why we passed tough reforms to protect consumers and our financial system from the kind of abuse that nearly brought our economy to its knees. And that’s why we’ve taken steps to end taxpayer-funded bailouts, and make sure businesses and individuals who do the right thing aren’t undermined by those who don’t.

"But it’s not enough to change the law – we also need cops on the beat to enforce the law. And that’s why, on Thursday, I nominated Mary Jo White to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Richard Cordray to continue leading the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

"Mary Jo White has decades of experience cracking down on white-collar criminals and bringing mobsters and terrorists to justice. At the SEC, she will help complete the task of reforming Wall Street and keep going after irresponsible behavior in the financial industry so that taxpayers don’t pay the price."

.."so that taxpayers don’t pay the price."
Hahahaha.. does anyone take this buffoon seriously? - give me a breaaaak! he's starting to make Jimmy Carter look like a reasonable and effective leader.

At this moment he has Ben KeynesianKlown printing unsustainable un funded future debt at the tune of eighty five billion dollars a month with no end in sight and an economy that's headed for collapse..what?... now he want's me to believe he's putting a couple of real pro's on it?
..this is cracking down on irresponsible behavior?- holy moly!!

Here comes another staged witch hunt with the usual plebe or two thrown under the bus, all this for another dose of Obama theater.

Pax Obama.

He doesn't even care if he knows we know he is lying to the camera, in fact he enjoys rubbing our face in it..

The media will start congratulating him for a job well done and Chris Matthews might just drop his pants on camera this time.

midnightsstaff said...

.."I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence," Obama tells The New Republic."

Did I tell you that football is gone, might as well put the little charmers in tutu's and have them wear lipstick.. Punky hizzself is calling it too violent now, it looks to me like a pretty clear dog whistle for the media to get started with another step in the organized pogram of emasculating America one issue at a time..
..first it was dodgeball..

.. don't doubt me that this is an organized project, just like the war on SUV's and the war on productive white men.

PROUD said...

Get this, Chuck Schumer wants Beyonce to apologize to him for lip sinking the Star Spangled Banner at the inauguration...

Schumer feels personally embarrassed because he was the one who got the pop diva and her hubby Jay-Z to be a part of the inauguration.

No word on whether he's expecting apologies from the made for TV, teleprompted Poser, pretending to be President, or the Vice Plagiarizing, buffoon fumbling his lines every chance he gets?

With all the have mimes getting high praise for acting like they're running a country, why go after another performer for miming one song?

Sit back...Enjoy the show America!

drum roll that out of your system eh Juan?- haha... are really taking this Baltimore in the Superbowl to heart aren't you?- EA was a product of that glorious city..

But not to dwell on the negative, it seems the high schools graduation rate has never been higher.. this is cause for celebration isn't it?

Unfortunately the groomed morons they are processing through cannot read or write at a high school level and critical thinking is a complete foreign and unfamiliar process.

How many generations have been condemned to a lifetime of uselessness and confusion because the public schools teachers are not interested in results other than maintaining their control and status as the privileged mandarins of education even though they are abject failures by any estimation.

Only in a deliberately sabotaged socialist system sheltered by a complacent media would this be allowed.

Now I hear the NAACP is all over the faggot dictator's case- over abortions of all things- haha.. this thing is falling apart pretty early.

Jim McAllister said...

From Reader Ed. Welcome to America.

This is exactly why Mitt Romney said that 47 percent of the people are too dependent on the government. They have learned to work the system.

A Ford Dealer's Report - From Tom Selkis' (Latham Ford) Facebook - True story yesterday at the dealership.

"I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.

One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus.
As he was reviewing her credit application with her he noticed she was on social security disability.
He said to her you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work.
She said "Well I'm really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling injury)."
She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check. And she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent.

Oh yeah, and 250 minutes free on her phone.
That is just south of $3500.00 a month.

When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week.
Do the math and then ask yourself why should she go back to work.
If you multiply that by millions of people, you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country.

Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario, we are finished. The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already, and there are not enough people working to pay enough taxes to support the non-working people? Riots?? Be prepared to protect your homes.

She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00/month.
Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money."

Jim McAllister said...


I read the Weekly Standard piece online yesterday and I reacted the same as you.

The guy is such a liar that he spews this garbage without blinking.

I find myself in a bad mood at least part of every day over this jerkoff.

Jim McAllister said...


Don't forget tag and rope jumping. We mustn't have the kids lose self esteem because one is better than the other.

He will have a hell of time getting rid of real football. No one is going to watch some watered down version of the game because we have a wimp for a president.

Jim McAllister said...

I hope Schumer doesn't really expect some phony no voice pop diva like Beyonce to apologize for the lip sync.

That's hilarious. Looks like I have to pinch myself again; this shit can't possibly be happening.

Putin may as well come on over and get us: we're finished.

Jim McAllister said...


I meant to leave you a longer message but I'm in a hurry right now to get down to Tom's Laundry. LOL

Hilarious stuff!

Jim McAllister said...


It's scary when our president starts talking about "regulating irresponsible behavior."

In other words we better do as he says or else!

I think he better consider getting more bodyguards. Some people are going to start taking exception to this crap eventually.

Here's a good YouTube from Sonny (1:14).

Coincidentally, it's the location of our next blogger's luncheon so check it out.

It appears the Coyotes have regained their system, despite having four key injuries and an AHL goalie they put in a great showing in Glendale tonight..
If they can start stacking a few wins it's right back in the thick of it.

I like that Johnson's type of netminding, sort of like Dryden used to play.. straight up and square to the puck.
..we get Torries back Saturday night against the Stars.. think I am going to go to that game.

Jim McAllister said...


Yeah, good game, a S/O no less. They were in need of something.

Hopefully that will be a harbinger for the rest of the season.

ya know... Fancyfeast isn't half bad with a little sour cream..

sorry.. off topic.

sorry about that, I have been watching another Santelli video.. one of these days he's going to have one of those " I'm mad as hell and not going to take it any more" meltdowns on camera..
good thing we have utube eh?

Yeah a shut out for the rook, I saw a lot I liked tonight with the blue line and center ice being defended and a strong forecheck all three periods, maybe things are starting to click again, getting Hanzal, Smith and Torres back soon would help, having Rusty Klessla down doesn't help but I liked the way Runblad ran the power play.
Should be a good game Wednesday night with the Oil.

midnightsstaff said...

Everyone happy with the way the Republipukes are joining with the Communists to make sure enough illegals get to vote in future elections?

The Republican party is officially dead- the stench from it's rotting flesh is stinking up the nation.
I want to congratulate all those RINO voters who made damn sure our senior Senator was re elected so he could deliver our Constitution it's last rites.

All you McCain voters have been had and are the epitome of a low information bound voting fool.

Rick Kepple said...

Edgar Allen "po"

Funny, Proud. You may now put a little nip in your coffee. You earned it for that joke.

Boy, I caught heck for video taping a novice guitar player with a LEGEND. Professional musicians strenously objected and said that either I edit it, or they're not Sharing it. WOW!

So this is the SHORT version, but the long version is still on the Internet for regular folks to figure that they too can be friends with LEGENDS.

"Keep in Time: The Story of Dell Mack," a film by Rick Kepple

"It's scary when our president starts talking about 'regulating irresponsible behavior.'"

Like anyone in Washington D.C. is responsible. That's a laugh!

Jim McAllister said...


You're right about the Fancyfeast. I prefer the liver flavor right out of the can.

The hardest part is distracting Tinker long enough so I'm able to get to it.

Jim McAllister said...

Now the head wimp in Washington is telling us he will legislate irresponsible behavior. Then he says football is too dangerous which ties into his first statement.

So, are we to assume that football as we know it will be considered irresponsible behavior and become illegal? Will we have to have secret games in hidden places to enjoy our great American sport just because some guy who can't throw a baseball from the pitcher's mound to home says so?

Yesterday he was praising the NBA players for what good citizens they are and how they are such good family men. When I finished laughing, the first one I thought of was Shawn Kemp, formerly of the Seattle Sonics.

I guess he will be praising the NFL players next with Ray Lewis and Plaxico Burris at the top of his list of fine young citizens.

Wake up America!

Jim McAllister said...

Obama is truly an idiot's delight.

His comments about football brought a lot of funny comments from NFL guys.

One of the best was from Jim Harbaugh, coach of the 49ers who said that when his 4 month old son is ready to play football there will be a lot less competition if kids quit playing.

midnightsstaff said...

What do you expect from someone who sees a night at the bathhouse as an example of a contact sport?

Some fire breathing Republican please fill me in on why I should ever take that group of appeasers seriously?- the position they are taking right now is the very same as the Communists have taken.
..a whole party of Fatass CommieChristie's is what we have inherited.

This is the Cloward Piven strategy in full bloom, he has no intent other than the complete destruction of the nation as a goal..

There will be war and I hope the dykes that voted for him enjoy being staked to be overrun by radical muslim troops and left to die in some hellhole in Africa with no support whatsoever from the White House coming.

In my worst moment in 68 I never had the thought that the White House might actually decide not to provide air cover or gun support to our position.. but those days are a fleeting memory- he is emasculating the flag officers in all branches at this moment as to carry out his program of destroying the military.

Collateral damage on either side has no meaning whatsoever to the truly evil.

midnightsstaff said...

Haha.. Erin Burnett finally said something on camera that makes sense, normally a dutiful Stepford wife she has questioned the little queer on his obvious lies.

midnightsstaff said...

Oh yeah, Rubio is a complete fraud as well it seems.
There is no place in the Republican party for a man any longer.

Jim, Obama said if he had a son he wouldn't want him playing football. What an a-hole.

My son played Pop Warner from the time he was 10 until High School and loved it. He then played all 4 years in High School.

Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks . . .
Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video

draw your own conclusions if we need high capacity mags..

you say you have a five shooter?-


Jim McAllister said...

Thanks for the clip with Erin. Good to see her lovely face again

Yeah, she is wondering like we do about this guy. That's two laughable moments with the little jerk in two days: The skeet shooting and the football safety thing.

I'm sure he wouldn't even know how to put a shell in a gun and if he did he would probably shoot himself although we probably couldn't get that lucky.

Well, at least one good thing has happened. Michelle has decided to quit trying to starve the children of this nation by abandoning her lunch programs for schools.

The bad news: she is probably dreaming up something new just as stupid to get her face on TV with the Diana Ross wig.

Jim McAllister said...


Obama wouldn't want his son to play football but he said in the past that if he had a son he would look just like Trayvon.

This is another one of those "pinch myself" moments when I am wondering what the jug eared stutterer is trying to say.

Fortunately he is being laughed out of the building on his football safety comments.

I've never seen anyone with such an ego that he thinks he is so knowledgeable on everything that whatever he says will be taken seriously.

He is very full of himself and full of something else too.

Jim McAllister said...


I miss Zappa. Barb and I saw him in concert in the 70s; great show plus I'll never forget his confrontation with Tipper Gore over song lyrics.

Poor Tipper; by the time Al made the big bucks he was already chasing.

Jim McAllister said...

I'm still laughing at that clip of that gal getting tased. Wow! She went down like a sack of potatoes.

Hopefully she learned a valuable lesson: Don't get in the face of a black guy calling him "nigger" 500 times; especially if he has a taser. I wish he would have given her another dose!

By the way, that looked like a nice little place to have lunch. Let's meet there sometime.

Yeah, all I have is a 5 shooter but I think after the first couple reports, most of them would haul ass anyway.

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah I'll go- but please leave your parrot home, wouldn't want him picking up any bad language...

AlGandTippsey deserved each other..

Da Zap was way ahead of his day, I pretty much thought he was a bit over the top but right now he looks reasonable and fairly conservative bordering libertarian.

Never judge anyone by appearance alone, he knew what government was all about- ya gotta give him that.

.."The government cannot give to
anybody anything that the
government does not first take
from somebody else."

This Saturday's game didn't have that many seats left unsold, hopefully the crowd size will pick up.

If you could choose between Frank and Barry which one would you trust?

Jim McAllister said...

I see where there were only 8500 for Nashville.

Considering it was a weeknight and not a Detroit or Chicago confrontation, I guess that's not too bad.

I see where Jamison keeps saying he's in but I don't see any money yet. he can call me when he is ready write the check. SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Frank....he had more class. Barry has no class.

midnightsstaff said...

I keep hoping but it looks worse each day... weeknights are slow, they are starting some promotions like student discounts again, probably military with the base next door..
It could work but, yeah business decisions usually are not done as with political gamesmanship, they actually want to make a profit or at least break even while taking some tax angle.

Got to keep it in mind with investors that it's a business first and a sport second- if that.

But the franchise has been so mishandled I think with a good product and good marketing they could be competitive and solid..
besides without them Westgate turns into Boot Hill.

I am suspicious about all the front loaded home games schedule the league gave them, that is exactly what I would do if I thought there might be a move announced.. what is, is..

"It looks like a nice mid-winter day there in the hinterlands of Missouri." - Jim McAllister of a video.

Yep. Today it was 60. Tomorrow, it's supposed to be about 30. Rain and tornado watches today.

I got an email from a German television employee today who used to live in the area and saw the Dell Mack video and expressed his appreciation for it. Dell called and said that a guitarist from Germany called him to say hi. Some guy from a band called, "The Jersey Boys."

Musicians all over the world want to know who I am.

Dell Mack was told again and again by his friends to get rid of me, and this is a guy who picks winners. He told them that they didn't know what they were talking about.

Dell Mack said, off camera, "Elvis had Colonel Tom Parker and I've got Rick Kepple."

In some ways, it's like being there with all the legends.

Some of those songs have been recorded by various artists many times over and no one knows.

I'm the only journalist that Dell Mack trusts. I want a big boat. Big.

Proud should visit.

And Dale is getting Nick's computer fixed. That's why I employ and give room and board to a computer tech. I got a company to run.

Thanks guys! Stay dry!

And another fledgling entrepreneurial venture takes flight..

On gossamer wings sheer inspiration finds it's limitations only in the bounds of Imagination.
Gaining strength from every obstacle overcome and taking a deep draught the sweet nectar from the cup of success one might at first become heady with the intoxication of this new found elixir, God's own tonic for the maladies of mankind, the satisfaction of building something with their own two hands and not stealing from another.
(which was covered in the original ten.)

However when imagination is the entire foundation for inspiration those wings may soon grow prematurely heavy..

Don't let go of that dream Rick, seize the moment- grasp success by the throat and don't let go- jamb your arm down it's throat and grab him by the balls..

By God, I do believe we are witnessing the birth of another Brian Epstein.

Ya know you're right about that six degree difference in your elevation- looks like you will get down to about 34 tonight and here it's supposed to be 40.. doesn't seem right but what is, is..

..does Scottsdale still put out space heaters for when the temp drops?

Mike Slater said...

Jim,that whole skeet shooting thing was laughable at best. I doubt Obama has ever had a gun in his hand nor would he know how to use one.

You need to upgrade from your 5 shooter. Perhaps a semi-automatic with a 10 round magazine.

Rick Kepple said...

"By God, I do believe we are witnessing the birth of another Brian Epstein."

Why thank you very much ... from what I think I know of Epstein. Manager of the Beatles. Sounds cooler than Colonel Parker.

The viewership statistics of Dell Mack's videos shows about 80 percent mobile devices and the rest computers. So apps is definitely the way to go.

Dell Mack's videos really don't count, since they are historical documents and will be around forever. I also wrote Dell Mack's encyclopedia page for the county's archives.

We've been talking about buying another camcorder and doing a feature film for DVD.

Jim McAllister said...

I feel sorry for Tippett. He is a high class guy and a great coach who deserves to be in a good environment.

If they could win consistently, it would sure help the crowds for the lesser teams. They will always dray 18,000 for Chicago, Detroit, Phila. etc. but they need more for Minnesota, Jersey, etc.

Some guys really love a sport and will take money losses if their pockets are deep enough but most gotta make a buck. It's still a business.

Jim McAllister said...


That weather brings back memories. Shorts and tee shirt one day and parka the next. Good old Mizzou weather; it was the same while I was at Whiteman.

Jim McAllister said...


I've checked it many times in summer and winter. It's always about 7 degrees difference between us and down on the 101.

Yes, free space heaters paid for by the government.

Jim McAllister said...


One of the sites has a picture of him at the pool with a superimposed little toy rifle. Really funny.

The dumbass wouldn't even know how to load a damn gun. What a joke he is.

How is a guy going to do anything with a gun if he is afraid of football?

Jim McAllister said...

Brian Epstein? LOL

midnightsstaff said...

mike, I agree.. but how about a nice 1911 full size frame, not too bad recoil, magazines are everywhere and pretty cheap, .45 acp is readily available and old ugly even in ball round is nothing but business for a defensive round.

..everyone should have a nice police style shotgun in the house as well loaded up with double OO buck, same thing, it's cheap and effective insurance.

midnightsstaff said...

.."A teenage girl–an honor student who had just performed at President Obama’s inaugural–was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended."

I wonder if the punk will now tearfully go on camera and demand a halt to violence in Chicago?

na.. this just doesn't pass the sniff test when it comes to destroying the nation- I guess if there is no white mexican named Goldberg defending his life with a legal firearm that can be scapegoated, it just doesn't have merit.

She is just more collateral damage in Obama's war on America.

Thank you State of Pennsylvania.. they just forwarded this legislation..
this is what every state should pass immediately and then arrest and convict Federal agents breaking state laws.

This is an example of a highly informed American citizen exercising his first amendment rights of expression, we need more of this type of thinking and a lot less of the Statist mindset.

.."a free people can only make this mistake once"... yes that's what he said and it's a deadly accurate statement.

Isn't this the exact thing that got people hung at Nurenburg?

Looks like Obama is engineering a chemical attack on humanity.. wonder if Candy Crowley will report this?

Amazon profits shrunk by 45% the last quarter, two things.. didn't Amazon finally cave in and start charging sales tax a little while ago? and why did the stock price rise in light of a crushed quarter?

...manipulated markets anyone ????

Too bad your new business model is likely to suffer from a collapsing market Rick.. perhaps in a growing economy you might have had success and enjoyed the fruit of your labors but if this report is true then we are headed for a serious depression that will crush all new ventures not sheltered by the new paradigm of "the new normal" or benefit from the "friends of Obama" campaign paybacks program he promotes.

Might want to reconsider that vote for Obama you cast.. too late you say?

I guess it's a matter of..
"what difference does it make?"- does that make you feel better?

Jim, A 1911 45 is a nice choice. Never understood why the military gave that up for a 9mm. The 45 will blow a hole in a barn door.

I have a Ruger 9mm with two 15 round magazines I keep in the house and sometimes take hunting with me. My concealed carry weapon is a Ruger 380 cal with two 6 round magazines and I also have a Ruger 22 I use for target shooting.

I also have a 12 gauge shotgun for hunting and home protection.

I know this will make you guys happy. It's the simple things of life, you know.

Ray Carson is a former radio DJ, with Carson not being his actual name. Ray was my editor at the Waynesville Daily Guide when I was a sports editor and later a newspaper reporter. He's Old School. Knows Dolly Parton, Dell Mack, so many others personally. He once arranged to have Dolly call me when Dora got sick in 2000. My favorite friend was always SN. My pal who kept me strong when Dora was dying.

Anyway, Ray is a staunch Republican and he and I are Facebook friends. He recently lost his wonderful wife, Linda, and she was always willing to give me good advice. She may have chewed my butt once or twice when I deserved it.

Ray Carson just defended me in an argument with Bodo concerning gun rights. He's a bit like Jim.

The news just said on Facebook that Christian County sheriff's department in Missouri will refuse to obey any order trampling on Second Amendment rights.

It's starting.

Well, I figure to get another camcorder or two and I'm going to need the Adobe Premier Pro video software. Plus camcorders that use external microphones. A studio would be nice. God will provide, I reckon.

I used to have nightmares of this time. In my dreams, I was young and running in single file with other soldiers fighting for the independence of America. It all began in 2025 when the global government took power. I wrote a novel based on what happened and after that, Dora died and you know my story.

It's a better world for some people, but not for everyone.

Just gonna have to make those happy videos. Appear not to be a problem to those people who are doing this. They have lots and lots of money and I can't fight that.

Missouri sheriffs are going to oppose any gun confiscations, but gee whiz, that's just part of the plan. So eventually it will mean foreign intervention.

They used international law in Oklahoma. They will use international law against Americans.

It won't matter where you live. Look at how the youth are being brainwashed that everything we see is normal. We're just old senile old farts from the Cold War.

By 2025, guess who will be running the world? God help us ... just hope it isn't a liberal.

Yeah Missouri seems the most part a fairly reasonable state, chickens grown in Missouri taste just as good as the ones from Tennessee they say.

It was probably politics that gave us the nine mm Beretta model 92, I could never figure it out either, but you could pick up a government model for fifty bucks back then, I wish I had done exactly that now.

I have a Springfield Armory now, and it's a real nice shooter.

Well it looks like the government is flexing up on us, they are staging air tactical maneuvers in Florida and Texas.. it's coming folks, they are going to stage another false flag crisis and pull another stunt against our Constitutional rights.

I wouldn't want to be stuck in some northeastern human debris breeding preserve in the near future.

.."On January 25th, 2013 , Mr. Lyndon Larouche, a well respected journalist and political activist recieved word from his sources within the United States government that President Barack Hussein Obama has been indicted by a Federal Court. Details of the indictment has been ommited by Larouche but he characterized them as probably the greatest indictment he has ever seen placed upon a standing president throughout history. Watch the first 5 minutes of the video to hear this explosive news."

Well, here we go again.. you like roller coasters don't you?
