WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE


“The parallel between Benghazi and the IRS story is amazing.  (It’s) lying about lying, then lying about the fact that they are lying.  Then seeking to apologize for lies that they claim they didn’t tell.  This pattern is a culture of big government who believes that it is more important than the American people.”
……….Newt  Gingrich.

I doubt if Obama had any inkling of what 2013 might bring to his table after his easy re-election in 2012.  He even started off the New Year with a bang by beating the Republicans into an embarrassing cave in on tax hikes for the fiscal cliff.

Wow!  How rosy it looked for the guy who brings new meaning to “superego.”  At his State of the Union speech, he proposed a “left wing dream factory” according to columnist Charles Krauthammer with a declaration of war on global warming (even though temperatures are the same as 16 years ago and CO2 emissions are at a 20 year low).

House Rep Jason Chaffetz is talking of
possible impeachment proceedings. 
Also on the list was universal pre-school for 5 year olds in a country already drowning in debt.  He also felt confident in the Democrats re-gaining the House in 2014. 

Gosh, this being the President isn’t hard after all; except that it is, especially when you are, as Edward Klein called Obama in his book, The Amateur

When confronted by the lack of his intimidation on sequester by Republicans, he panicked like a schoolyard brat with silliness like airline delays and the cancellation of White House tours.  Looking foolish, he eventually caved in.

Need we discuss his embarrassment over the loss of his gun control bill?  Sure, why not?  I wonder how much gas he burned up at our expense to fly all over hell posing with grieving relatives of those slain by guns.  He lost 60-40 in a Senate that had 55 seats belonging to his own party.

Want more?  How about the Benghazi hearings? The IRS/Tea Party scandal?  The AP wire tapping by Obama’s buddy Holder (“Who, me?  Yes, you!”), and the latest:  HHS Secretary Sibelius trying to illegally get funds to prop up Obamacare.   Hell, as long as we are airing out this guy, how about a SECOND court ruling against his illegal appointment of members to the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was off?  It’s like endlessly listening to Sonny and Cher sing “And the beat goes on.”

The Republicans have a great opportunity here if they just don’t blow it.  In the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Humphrey Bogart (as Fred C. Dobbs) and Tim Holt (as Curtin) have been stiffed on
their wages by their boss McCormick as played by Barton Mac Lane.

When they see McCormick walking down the street dressed in a nice new suit with a young senorita, Dobbs says “Let’s get him….and get him HARD!”

That’s exactly what Republicans need to do.  Get Obama and get him hard.  I may add that they need to do it soon.  These types of opportunities have a way of disappearing if not quickly acted upon!

Disagree Jim...Obama's good at playing the race / victim / under-dog card. EXTREMELY GOOD!

I think the more Republicans attack, the more Obama becomes a martyr....

The more he's attacked, the more low information voters, (dumbass American recruits in the freeshytarmy), rally to defend this "poor", "black", "pulled himself up by his worn, sharecrgopper bootstraps", "only wants to help us little guys but those mean, greedy Republicans won't allow it cause they can't stand a Black-man, in the White-House"

After all, he's not the President, he's a made for TV, Hollywood, movie about a black man beating all odds and trying to help the masses by getting back what was taken from them illegitimately (sounds like CJ was the screen writer eh)

He and his ruination of the country are here for at least another 3+ years, I'm guessing maybe 4 more!

midnightsstaff said...

That's another elbowing penalty! and she hasn't even showed up yet..

As I said Obama isn't the problem, liberalism is the problem.

This election cycle will see any tea party candidate get a whole lot less support due to the message just sent that if you donate the IRS will be looking into your files.
if there ever was a time to pass a flat tax this is it, but is anyone even talking about tearing this Nazi organization down?
yeah.. just what I thought.

Banana Republic USA..

Pax Obama..

PROUD said...

Liberalism has been a known problem for years...

Dirty, anything for a victory, Chicago style, slash / burn at the executive level, politics is something of a new,(ok a few yrs) phenom....

Obama is essentially Nixon's corrupt scummyness,.... with a liberal dose of steroids...

midnightsstaff said...

Not to offer apology for Obama but I maintain that his method would have been rejected outright except for the advancement of liberalism all across the society.

It began in the institutions all across America from the halls of Harvard now down to the halls of Sandy Hook elementary.
He now owns the courts system, he has the enforcement arm in his pocket, the tax nazi's are laughing in your face because they told on themselves knowing the liberal press will eventually have to come to heel.
it's sheer power now, no more mr. nice guy.
There will never be another free election at the national or Senate level.

As Rush said "this is not a government out of control, no quite the contrary this is a government in total control"
..and he is right.

This guy would have been laughed off the stage running against JFK, but that was before the liberal movement got started, now the tentacles of oppression are wrapped around every aspect of every day life, and we have a nation of sheep that just voted him in after four years of abject failure on every issue.

He's a symptom of a deeper problem we face.
This is a nation of cowards and malcontents, the voting public is no longer sharing the same mindset as the voting public that elected Ronald Reagan.

You could eliminate him tomorrow and it wouldn't change the statist, oppressive tone of DC.

Pogo recognized the problem.

midnightsstaff said...

Well, that was quick..

http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/20/democratic-senator-goes-on-anti-gop-rant-over-climate-change-as-tornadoes-hit-oklahoma/

I suppose this falls under the old "never let a crisis to go to waste" theory.

-nothing surprises me anymore.

Jim McAllister said...

I think you guys are being too negative.

I'm disappointed you give up so easy. They are still in the minority and I can't believe that the greatest nation on Earth will sit back on this.

Don't be quitters and throw in the towel so easily.

"Crazy Ray" Manzerek.

When I see his name I always remember the long version of "Light My Fire."

midnightsstaff said...

Who made this statement?...

.."After we win this election, it's our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don't forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.
Congress won't be a problem for us this time.
No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go."

1. Ronald Reagan.
2. F.D.R.
3. George Bush.

..actually it was none of the above.
I hope you are right Jim.

The administration comes out and openly taunts us with the fact that there is nowhere to go to even complain about what can only be considered RICO violations against the citizenry, then what do you do?- call an attorney, contact John McCain?- yeah go ahead and contact some politician and the only response you will get is a letter demanding money.

..or do you buy ammunition and firearms while they are available?

midnightsstaff said...

It's about time for the second ring of the three ring event to open with Miller back on the stand.

http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN3/

Baucus is doing the intro and getting valuable face time in front of a camera.. yeah like Baucus is an honorable person or something.

..what a joke, Miller was not in charge- why don't they bring up the actual players and put them under oath?
sheer theater with various actors using the event for campaign donations.

Oh now Orrin Hatch is grabbing the spotlight and moralizing.
..is it too early for popcorn?

midnightsstaff said...

Haha.. Hatch asking Schulman why he didn't inform congress.. translation.. Congress was in the dark so they didn't do anything then- (altho they all knew in 2011 this was going on)- in other words this is theater designed for soundbites and exonerating the true criminal class which is always the same people......
Congress.

"Why didn't you tell us?"
what a farce.

oh good Debbie Socialist from Minn. is now hogging the camera and acting incensed.

Jim McAllister said...

Let's get even more pissed. Read this:

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/51947575#.UZuberW1FjQ

He kills and wounds all those soldiers and gets paid $287,000 for his trouble. If he ever goes to trial, he'll probably be found "not guilty."

Meanwhile the victims are on their own to pay their medical bills.

midnightsstaff said...

Until these evil bastards tell certain people how they are going to have to explain a few personal things and fill out some forms before you get approved for that bypass operation I guess we have other things to do..

..I understand that political posturing didn't do a damn thing about the Crown's excesses in the late 1700's- just like today.

..face the facts...nobody gives a shit Jim, change the subject.

midnightsstaff said...

I watched Senator Menendez questioning IRS on improprieties this morning.. how about what happened to his investigation?
.."As if having a convicted child predator on his Senate staff wasn’t bad enough, Sen. Menendez now finds himself at the center of a second child molesting investigation. This time however, Menendez himself is being accused of being the child sex offender."

http://www.whiteoutpress.com/articles/q12013/fbi-emails-detail-sen-menendez-child-prostitution-accusation/

Max Baucus is one of the Senators that told the IRS to start targeting.. and he is on the panel.

..and you think this will actually lead to reform or even arrests?- yeah I am negative.

Jim McAllister said...

Every little bit helps:

midnightsstaff said...

More tornado action today, all the way from mid Oklahoma to Arkansas- Dallas closed the schools early today as a precaution.

..there is a reason I don't live in either of those states.

Glo said...

Jim,

I read that story about the $278K - it made me want to throw up and scream. this is the type of thing that can make one ashamed to be an American.

midnightsstaff said...

.. "this is the type of thing that can make one ashamed to be an American."

You need a new keyboard, your S key seems to be cutting out...
Should read "this is the type of thing(s) that can make one ashamed to be an American"

..hope that helps.

Jim McAllister said...

Glo,

Putrid, isn't it?

The guy was shot several times and somehow survived so now we can take care of his ass the rest of his life.

I'm sure Obama sent his Muslim buddy many get well cards plus apologies for the inconvenience and probably waved income taxes on his income.

Sickening.

Jim McAllister said...

Menendez is a proven pervert. What is he even doing there? Oh, I forgot, this is the Obama administration.

Jim McAllister said...

Glo,

Also, I remember when this happened at Ft. Hood. They had this guy dead to rights as the one who did the shooting and Obama's reply was
"Let's not jump to conclusions."

Stevebuzzardo said...


"..there is a reason I don't live in either of those states."

yeah, ya gotta love the idiots talking about the Phoenix area, how terrible it is here. So we have hot weather in the summer. At least your house wont be destroyed by a tornado or hurricane. Not to mention an earthquake..


midnightsstaff said...

Also the humidity, people here complain about the monsoon, haha- the worst day here is like a nice day in most of the midwest.

Then there's the bugs, can't see em on the pictures but believe me sit on the grass for a few minutes and you will know what redbugs are.
mosquitos- forget sitting out on the balcony without a smudge pot and you will be drained in an hour.

I love Arizona.

midnightsstaff said...

Lerner says she doesn't want to testify to congress..
I guess that's pretty much that eh?- she wants to take the fifth....
sounds like our governor.

She said she is innocent and has nothing to add to the investigation besides she is busy getting Obamacare ready and can't spare the time.

I didn't know you could just refuse to do this sort of thing.. maybe I should just tell the IRS that I am not guilty either and don't have the time.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, it's sad to see what's happening to this country under Obama. I really thought with the election of Reagan the country would get back on the right path and reject liberalism. Sadly that's not the case.

I thought after 4 years of Obama it would be like 1980 again. Boy was I wrong. Now I'm wondering with we will ever have another Republican president.

On your other blog you mentioned Terry Bradshaw. He went to Louisiana Tech but was number 2 on the depth chart. The number 1 guy and the starting QB was a guy named Phil Robertson. He gave up football because of duck hunting. He's the one that started making duck calls and is the father of the boys on the show Duck Dynasty.

He turned down an offer from the Washington Redskins.

Glo said...

Hey Middy,

Actually 'thing' is correct since it is a reference to the singular $278K story via 'this is the type of thing." A plural would be 'these are the types of things' would be in order.

midnightsstaff said...

And I am the proud owner of two duckcommander calls and a pintail whistle..
Duckcommander makes the finest instruments available, too bad the feds have completely screwed up the sport with regulations that pretty much take the fun out of it on the western flyway anyhow.

I should at least watch the show sometime..
It's a big deal in La and Arkansas, duck hunting is a way of life back there.

Ya.. I gotta agree with you mike, liberalism is like rust to a society, even if you put a coat of paint on it, it still bleeds through and destroys the integrity.

George Bush was merely a whitewash.

I never thought I would see this day in my lifetime but I don't even recognize the country any longer.

I went to the balcony and gave it a few hail calls.. the cat looks like she was in a tornado- fur sticking straight up- haha.. just wait until the ducks show up..

midnightsstaff said...

Glo, I'll just pay the fine, no sense getting the lawyers involved.

midnightsstaff said...

Does anyone else know if the restaurant industry is in a slump around here or no?
I just went by restaurant row here on the west side at 5 and there was only the help's vehicles in Mimi's and The Big Apple parking lots.

I went to the BA a couple of weeks ago and the help outnumbered us- same way at Macaio's a couple of weeks ago.. no one there.

Just wondering how that industry is faring.

Stevebuzzardo said...


That duck dynasty guy was on Jay Leno and told the story about how he was the star quarterback and Bradshaw was the backup. I couldn't believe it. Hes a pretty interesting guy that's for sure.

midnightsstaff said...

Hey.. he followed his dream and probably saved his knees in the bargain.

Lots of success stories out there at every level, they are usually too busy doing something to honk their own horn.
It's getting harder to do any more tho, the CEO of Home Depot said flat out that if he had to try and do the same thing he did in the 70's he wouldn't have a chance.
sad but that's reality.

midnightsstaff said...

.."The second term of the Bush administration and first five years of the Obama presidency have been devoted to codifying and institutionalizing the vast and unchecked powers that are typically vested in leaders in the name of war. Those powers of secrecy, indefinite detention, mass surveillance, and due-process-free assassination are not going anywhere. They are now permanent fixtures not only in the US political system but, worse, in American political culture."

from http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-21/pentagon-admits-war-terror-will-never-end

Yesterday in St. Louis the mostly elderly tea party IRS protesters were monitored not by street cops but armed to the teeth Homeland Security Forces just waiting for a reason to shoot.

1984 was a documentary.
"Oceania Tis for Thee" is the new national anthem and if anyone still thinks Ron Paul was paranoid about endless wars and police states.. well, they were wrong.

.."Each year that passes, millions of young Americans come of age having spent their entire lives, literally, with these powers and this climate fixed in place: to them, there is nothing radical or aberrational about any of it. The post-9/11 era is all they have been trained to know. That is how a state of permanent war not only devastates its foreign targets but also degrades the population of the nation that prosecutes it."
.. couldn't have said it better myself.

midnightsstaff said...

like I said, shut this thing down Jim, if anyone thinks that Issa and the Republicans are serious after letting Lerner tell them all to f' off and waltzing out of there..
he has the instincts of a schoolgirl.
and he is obviously just corrupt enough to serve as useful idiot.

too late for Costa Rica. ...too bad.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

I see today where Walmart Michelle is tired of the stress in Washington and is planning an extended vacation at Martha's Vineyard this summer.

Barack will try to join her a bit later as he is is interested in checking out a golf course property there.

I didn't know that about Bradshaw. I always assumed he was a great college player. I admire the other guy for passing on the fame and living they way he wanted to without fanfare.

Terry was a great guy to watch. Those Chuck Noll Steelers were a fun team to watch.

That's funny how no one really knows if that ball was really caught by Franco except Franco. The replays were inconclusive.

Jim McAllister said...

Buzz,

It's not like Oklahoma is a great place except for the tornadoes; I've been there and I wouldn't think it was great even if it didn't have tornadoes.

It's basically the same as western Kansas: flat and windy.

Jim McAllister said...

Mimi's used to be pretty good but the one in Scottsdale is looking a bit worn around the edges.

BA should have folded years ago. Nice place in its day but its day was 50 years ago.

Macayo's is Mexican; not really for me.

Jim McAllister said...

I saw that about the soldier. There is a reason I carry anymore.

PROUD said...

Jim...Bradshaw paid his dues, he hung in there when Pitts fans said he sucked, was overrated, overpaid and should be sacking groceries.

The (Steelers) weren't just fun....They were, um, at times....DIVINE? Need proof?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07zsdF0ysP0

Gave me goose bumps in 72....still gives me goose bumps today!

PROUD said...

ALL the restaurants we have visited lately are PACKED....

Every time we dine out, Leslie and I have a hard time believing the economy is weak....BTW,

" I don't often plug restaurants....BUT, when I do It's:

Tarbell's / 32 street & Camelback"

Always cozy, crowded, and God-damnd good. Most nights Mark is there.

(get the Scotch Beef, I guaranty you won't be disappointed)

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Yes, the '72 Steelers were a joy to watch. I felt good when the Bengals were able to beat them early in the season.

Remember John "Frenchy" Fuqua and his high heels with goldfish swimming in them?

Bradshaw came a long way from that first year. He has to have made a fortune in his post career with his commercials and pre and post game shows on Fox.

Wasn't Bleier the guy who lost part of a foot in Nam? I remember him playing at Notre Dame.

Jim McAllister said...

I certainly agree on Tarbell's. Barb and i had an anniversary dinner there about 10 years ago; it was excellent!

I remember when Mark beat Cat Cora on Iron Chef on the Food Network. Pretty impressive .

He is also quite an expert on wine and may still be doing a wine column in the Food section of the Rep.

Stevebuzzardo said...

no Jim, I hear that Bradshaw hasn't done too well managing his money. Bad marriages and other stuff.

I think he's doing better now though.

PROUD said...

Jim, as I recall, Bleier was injured in Nam, back in the 60's, told he'd never play and sports again, got a call from the Steelers owner thanking him for his brave service and offering a try-out,(which didn't go well)....

But, through strength of character, he persevered, and eventually won a starer position with the Steelers...

I guess that's what's called playing with lot's of "heart"...the kinda stuff from which, "Brian's Song", was made....

Loved them Steelers back then...

Jim McAllister said...

Steve,

Terry's not the sharpest chisel in the tool shed with money, huh? LOL

He never did come across as a guy that would receive an invitation from Mensa. A lot of athletes wind up that way. They think that money fountain will never stop. Suddenly they retire and everyone says "Who?"

Terry is lucky that he has a personality made for TV and I imagine Fox and his Nutri-System ads pay him pretty well these days.

Quite a character.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Bleier must be a tough SOB to come back from that injury and play that well. Credit the Steelers for giving him a shot.

Mr. Rooney was quite a guy from what I have heard and read.

proud said...

A little personal review of Mr. Bradshaw:

Jailbird & I were in the bar at Morton's (Esplanade Camelback), somewhere around 2007-08-ish waiting to be seated... At the other end was none other than Terry Bradshaw and a fairly large (and noisy),contingent of friends or hanger- oners...

He looked,(sounded) like a guy who really liked to laugh and have one hellofa lot of fun, and who wasn't the least concerned with where the bar tab was going....

He seemed like a genuine, really, nice guy...we both left there wishing we were among the friends and hanger-oners...

In addition to football / broadcasting/nutri-system, I think he made some pretty good money in the Smokey & Bandit and other movie rolls...

PROUD said...

Yeah Jim, guys like that, often underrated, underdogs, playing way over their heads with so much heart is what makes sports so great...

I may be an old naive fool, but I think guys like Bleier weren't out there only for the money, it was just as much about pride and proving ones self to their peers...

midnightsstaff said...

I guess Madden is just stuffing barnyard fowl inside other barnyard fowl anymore and pretty much doing the same as me- never stepping foot on an airplane.

great minds think alike.

Every other place I have ever lived if the wind blows the cable or the lights go out.
everything is underground except for the high voltage lines in these parts and we have water type toilets as well.

I bought a house built in 1929 on five acres with a one seater and detached garage for five grand when I first got married.

Probably some places in Oklahoma you can still get for that type of folding money, but despite two good fairly good college football teams the tornado action is just too much for me.

..maybe I just caught the restaurants at the end of the month or something, Big Apple has really gone down hill lately tho, I went to the Texas Steakhouse a few months ago and it was elbow to elbow- and worth the drive.

jekyll and hyde stockmarket today eh?- shorts got their ass handed to them.

Pevie Hicks said...

***This Just In***

The National Weather Service,(and Obama administration), has just determined that the terrible tornadoes in Oklahoma where caused by:

An Anti Islamic Youtube Video !

midnightsstaff said...

I wouldn't fit in with the Bible belt like Oklahoma or Tennessee, they are pretty much decent people, just stuck in their ways in a lot of communities- some counties are dry remember.

There was a lot of over estimating the death rate on this one, at first it was twenty some kids and fifty plus adults, looks like those were pretty far off thank God.

I did like the thunderstorms, we get a little here during monsoon but these out here are nothing like Summers back in the mid west and that's a fact.
..big boomers up in Ohio and Kentucky too- I remember Indy in the summertime.. fireflies and all.
next stop... one of these days..(wonder if my Willoghby has a beach, snorkeling and fireflies?)
..might as well throw in ice cold Pacifico's, beach barbecues and catch of the day fish taco's- without the radiation as long as I am at it.

midnightsstaff said...

..A Japanese man walked into the currency exchange in New York City with 5000 yen and walked out with $48. The following week, he walked in with another 5000 yen, and was handed $40. He asked the teller why he got less money that week than the previous week. The teller said, "Fluctuations."

The Japanese man stormed out, and just before slamming the door, turned around and shouted, "Fruc you Amelicans, too!.

might be a rocky start in the market today.

PROUD said...

Well, at least we can be sure that Obama knows absolutely NOTHING about this:

QEternity has now funded foreign banks to the tune of $1 Trillion, American taxpayer dollars:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-21/thanks-qe-bernanke-has-injected-foreign-banks-over-1-trillion-cash-first-time-ever

Low information voters getting hosed by Obama at every turn continue to believe he's looking out for them...

(Hey?...what time is the season premiere of Honey Boo-Boo?)

PROUD said...

BTW...the wind has been blowing like crazy in N/E Az for the past week, and weather guy says all of next week too....(20-30 mph with gusts in the 40's)

No way to put my little fishing boat,(The sloop John-C) in the water. Most lakes only allow electric trolling motors, so within minutes I would be on the down wind shore, struggling to make the battery last long enough to get back to the launch.

midnightsstaff said...

Sir that is probably the only reason for a man to get married and take the little woman fishing in the first place.
A wife comes in pretty handy not just for cleaning those fish, securing and keeping the boat clean and remaining sober enough to drive home.

I even stopped one time and bought some fiberglass and cloth and let her patch a small hole while I supervised,
so when the deep cycle gives out she can put the back to those oars.

Sure some don't like it at first when you want to circle back and give that sunken tree stump a few more casts, but just try to ignore the surly attitude- she is just not accustomed to the joys of fishing and much of these type of days is just for training anyway- you will find that out once you have her take a picture of you holding that fish you went back for.

..All is not lost with a dead battery, although few women will row too fast even with you admonishing her to speed it up so you get more action with the trolling lure you should still be able to work the banks on the way back to the ramp while enjoying a cold one- you just have to keep reminding her not to make grunting noises and spook the fish you are working.
.. if she needs correcting or starts wheezing loudly you might mention that we aren't calling ducks.

A wife can be a real partner or just dead weight in the relationship depending on how they were trained and that sir is your responsibility as spelled out in the Bible time and again.

..Once again it's your choice.

PROUD said...

Middy, I'm copying that to keep at the helm..(where the little woman won't see it of course).

I knew there was a reason I don't read the bible...sounds like a publication that could stir up some trouble?

Luckily, my wife really likes fishing, she tends to get a little too excited when she hooks one, so much so that as she gets it close and I say "keep your rod tip up", she promptly launches the poor fish into the stratosphere. Fortunately, more than a few still managed to land inside the boat.

I've found the secret to fishing and not drinking too much lies in the accounting...
I always measure in "dog beers" that way my limit is two!

BTW, windier than a mother today...

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

"I may be an old naive fool, but I think guys like Bleier weren't out there only for the money, it was just as much about pride and proving ones self to their peers..."

I agree; guys like you, me, Middy, Mike, Glo, Steve, etc. are old school anymore with that thinking in this world where it's all about "Me".

"Class" is also a thing of the past. I see today where Jerry Lewis at 87 said that he doesn't think women comdedians are funny and he quickly got a retort from good liberal Tina Fey that he could Go Fu-- himself.

Then, Bette Midler thanks the IRS for targeting the Tea Party because they preach "Hate." I guess that's what washed up non talented people do to get their names in the paper and online. What the dumb ass doesn't realize is that maybe they will come after her someday or someone else she likes if they are allowed to do now.

Common sense, class, manners, fairness, are words that are strange to many today.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

I think ol' John probably counted his money and decided enough is enough riding that bus all over hell every weekend. I miss him though; he was one of a kind. Remember when he coached wearing that short sleeve shirt and a tie flapping in the wind regardless of the temperature.

Unfortunately, his great partner Pat Summerall is now gone as is Pat's golf buddy for 35 years, Ken Venturi.

Those guys can't be replaced; all we can hope for is guys that are at least close to them.

Jim McAllister said...

Honey Boo Boo here I come!

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Be sure to send me your email address up north. I know it's something "cableone.net."

I wouldn't want you to miss one thrilling moment of this blog!!!

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

I agree. Barb used to come in handy in KC when we went fishing. She cleaned the catfish and drove home when I had a snootful.

She was so good that I even took the bounty off her!

midnightsstaff said...

Actually I forgot the most important part of the benefits of having her row up wind- an oversight.
While she is getting an excellent cardio workout and working on that pec foundation, she is in the best position to observe your fishing technique but more importantly she sees how a real captain on the high lakes thinks and makes decisions.

I assume you are using a post type casting seat so be sure to point out that even though she is on a folding lawn chair how with ease and comfort you can work both sides of the lake- explain that weight distribution is the reason the ice chest goes far foredeck so could you pass me another cold one hon?- besides she might need a short break just don't let her cool down or start popping blisters.

Work up to the point that when you swing your feet to starboard and point with a subtle shrug she naturally feathers the oars so as not to make any arhythmatic rowing noises.
It's like riding a horse, you communicate with a subtle shift of weight.
..communicating your decisions like other things can be most effective when delivered silently and unexpectedly, it's a thing of beauty to watch a team that are able to communicate seamlessly- keeping the helmsman or in this case the rower alert is paramount on any vessel.

She should catch on soon being smart enough to marry you, but keep reminding her that oars can spook the fish and catching them is the reason you two are on the lake that early in the morning to begin with- "repetition for retention".

Eventually a level of communication and understanding much the same as that of a championship golfer and his trusted caddie should be established.

Fishing can be not only be a fun experience to share with your honey but also a real learning opportunity in the bargain because you really get to know someone spending just a few hours in a boat- just ask the passengers of the Minnow.

At some point it should become obvious to everyone in the boat why you keep encouraging her to zig zag from shore to shore, of course it's to take advantage as much good structure as possible and make the best out of what might be considered a less than perfect day.
.. and after all wouldn't catching a few more fish cheer everyone on the Bounty up a bit?- come on.. where's that smiley face?- hey hand me another cold one babe..

just for luck.

..tomorrow should be a day to remember eh?- three day weekend, Asian bond market toes up.. the Fed chairs all in open mutiny against Bernanke's fiat printing of unsustainable debt, an out of control president who is looking for anything including starting a war to take the heat off his many scandals and one big one that hasn't even surfaced yet (where was he that night???)

.."Nun with a filthy habit" or .."none with a filthy habit".

The English language is full of linguistic pitfalls such as words spelled different with completely different meaning yet sound the same.

..their / there, new / gnu, you / ewe
voluntary contributions / theft...etc.

.. so was it "Allah Akbar" .. or "all outta da snackbar"..

- yeah I suppose that Army psyche Major might have been yelling something that while shooting up the place, it just sounded like..

damn, if there were only any dots to connect...

btw.. Who was it that told the New York Times that the Muslim call to prayer was "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth."- any ideas?

Everyone out of the snackbar.

Glo, Sociopathic and proud of it said...

Hey Jim,

I'm not sure I should be posting here any more. I made a comment about liberal bleeding hearts being too gutless to sentence sweet Jodi to death, and I was called a sociopath by someone who's apparently worked with nutjobs for many years and recognized my dangerous psyche for what it truly is.

The horrible thing is, I felt proud, not sad. I reckon that IS the true mark of a sociopath.

And here I was simply thinking about what's right and wrong based on the way I was brought up. dammit, Mom - you raised a psycho!!!!

Mom's Acorn said...

PS: Thanks, Mom.

Jim McAllister said...

Glo,

Who was giving you a hard time?

I'm not sure I should be posting here any more. I made a comment about liberal bleeding hearts being too gutless to sentence sweet Jodi to death, and I was called a sociopath by someone who's apparently worked with nutjobs for many years and recognized my dangerous psyche for what it truly is.

I went through the bloggers and they are all the regulars like your self.

Don't you ever leave! You are an important part of these comments.

midnightsstaff said...

I'm sorry if you thought I was making a pointed remark, but I was just trying to make what I thought the greater point that this world is absolutely filled with sociopaths.
.. some worse than others maybe... but is she worse than someone robbing a stranger and killing them?

Just looking at situations like this most times it was either going to be one or the other or some of the kids if they had any.. probably just as easily could have been her that got killed by her bunkee..
turds seem to attract turds.

Please accept my apologies if I offended you because I wasn't trying to yell anyone down, just trying to put it in perspective and maybe I was way off base with this case, I'm just disinterested in yet another case of over the top liberal behavior ending tragically.

..there are a lot of monsters out there.

Glo said...

Oh God Middy! My remark had nothing to do with you!!! Or this blog actually. I posted a comment on a AZ Repugnant news story about Jodi and response labeled me as you know what.

I was being facetious about maybe as a designated sociopath I shouldn't be posting anywhere.

Yeah, right - as if that would stop me!!

PROUD said...

No one asked, BUT...I kinda like the way Glo works "PROUD" into a lot of her fictitious screen names !

Jim, my same ol, "COX" email address will work just fine. Mountain technology, (flush toilets, running water etc) has come a long way in the past few years. Our ISP up here sweeps all my email accounts every time I log on....So, just like Denny's...

Glo, Middy.

Glad we got that straightened out on Glo's comment about Jodi.

With the "sociopath" crack the guy who posted that at AZ Rep must have been a leftover from the old azcentral blogs. It's cracks like that that that got those blogs cancelled.

Jim McAllister said...

Thanks for the info on your blog address staying the same.

Enjoy Show Low. Be sure to stay off the roof!

Thanks for the warning Jim. May seems to be my bad month, 1 week to go and I'm home free. Besides, I have more than enough ground level tasks to keep me busy well into June!

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend.

Glo the PROUD said...

Well, I am PROUD to be an American and will be enjoying Memorial Day. I am also PROUD to be posting here with all of these great bloggers (seriously). And PROUDLY I display here Lee Greenwood's anthem to our great and PROUD country:

God Bless The USA

by Lee Greenwood



If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I'd worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I'd thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I'm proud to be and American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

midnightsstaff said...

Well it was a bit strange, normally I don't get in anyone's biscuits unless they call me names a few times in print or are just absolute fools.

The media loves these sideshows that take our attention off the real damage being done to the country and gets us emotionally involved in something that in the end is meaningless to our own lives.

Thank goodness Mark Levin is back, he is exactly right.. there is no talk whatsoever about any real solutions like getting the IRS and all the other abusive government bungholes to quit strangling us.

I sense Mark is starting to see how disingenuous the RINO's have behaved- he brought up why did the Republicans wait until now to expose the issue?
good question with only one honest answer- they wanted the tea party candidates to be harassed.

These hearings are a sideshow and an insult to America.

Republicans like that jerk Issa are worse if you ask me because they are not honest but want us to believe they are.

Someone needs to ask the punkass Republicrats where the hell they were year ago when all this was known about?

Issa and the rest of these asshatts can kiss my ass.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Good idea on the ground level chores!

Have a great weekend.

Jim McAllister said...

Glo,

Thanks for printing Greenwood's lyrics. I well up a bit when I read that, especially when I think of all the lice running Washington now from Obama down through the cabinet.

It just amazes me what a bunch of phonies and liars we have now and it's even more disgusting that they actually have support.

It's almost comical to hear all the liars saying how they don't know anything about this or that when we know they all know everything and are just weaseling their way out.

It's been said that shit flows from the top. Nothing could be more true with Washington.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

I can't disagree. Like I mentioned the other day, they better do something quick before it all goes away again but I don';t see anything happening.

My confidence level is low.

"With the "sociopath" crack the guy who posted that at AZ Rep must have been a leftover from the old azcentral blogs. It's cracks like that that that got those blogs cancelled."

And here I thought that all the cat fighting on the blogs, particularly involving one 'special' featured blogger named Bodo, who tries to roar like a lion but acts like a very common pussy, played a big role in having the blogs taken away...BUT I guess you are right, Jim. Bodo got to keep his blog while the rest of us got ours taken away, for the most part...I guess you can still post on the main page though. Right? You just have to pay money for a subscription. Actually, I am not completely sure how it works now because I am no longer a participant on the AzCentral pay per view site. But I can say for an absolute fact that Bodo & his b-buddies at AzCentral ruined the experience for me. I believe I may even have a subscription because I do get the paper 2x a week & it always says 'online access' on my bill but I no longer care enough to figure out how that works...It wouldn't bother me in the least if the whole thing went straight to hell & took Bodo with it.

But if you ever want to see some of the old AzCentral posters, just check out the KPHO free site. Check it out quick, tho, because they are already in the process of trashing that place too. KPHO has already begun censoring certain words, removing whole comments, & disallowing comments on certain stories...So, again, I guess you are right, Jim. AzCentral didn't really give a crap about the way its favored bloggers behaved.

midnightsstaff said...

.."It wouldn't bother me in the least if the whole thing went straight to hell & took Bodo with it."

..allllright! it's "get it off your chest Friday"- nothing says three day weekend like a good old fashioned rantfest- Festivus shouldn't be only once a year.

maybe Jim should look into a seperate "two minutes of rage" segment each week. haha.. **sort of**

Yesirree- that might be the only pressure relief valve left.
- just tighten up the belt and giver er a rip.
by the way.. nice opening statement Cj. just keep in mind that absolutely no one is absolutely right including myself, but that was good enough to make America work until we decided to hand over our responsibility for our own best interests to people who have no concept of things of that matter.

Bodo would be a perfect IRS case worker, he has absolutely no compassion for his fellow man and cannot understand anyone who does.
I could go off on a rant about Block headed Germans but what would be the use? they are the rotten crotch of Europe and always have been.
I'm nearly ashamed to admit I have German ancestors on the Wagner side- I'm more proud of my mom's side of the family who were native Americans and literate English..

..but that would just lead to another rant on how they were treated- mostly by the Germans by the way..

..like I said, no one is perfect.

midnightsstaff said...

http://hamptonroads.com/2013/05/mom-34-convicted-mooning-suffolk-school-bus

Here's a perfect example of someone who needed the pressure relief valve that Festivus can offer.

a couple of two minute sessions of mindless screaming at the screen and she probably wouldn't have had to spend six month's at the ministry of love's conflict resolution center.

Imagine what happens when the SNAP cards across America zero out?
or better yet.... don't.

midnightsstaff said...

http://www.cnbc.com/id/100761312
.."Europe's largest economy, Germany, which has been criticized for not doing enough to help struggling euro zone countries, has topped a poll as the world's most popular country."

"Most popular country after they seized the savings of the Cypriots- man what do you have to do to piss anyone off"?

..anyway that was fast, someone over at Pravda on the Potomac must have read my thoughts on our Prussian buddies-
.. Bodo probably snitched.

..CNBC- most trusted news organization in America- right?

Glo, Mutt Girl said...

CJ: My Home Page is KPHO. I ain't paying for AZ rep or any other site access. I actually can read some AS rep stuff - it pops up and says "You have 19 more free articles this month." Well, oddly, I got used to the KPHO screens and don't even like the AZR any more.

Middy: Yep, sorry to say I have German blood, too. Actually, I am a true American mutt: all four of my grandparents were of different ethnicities:

Paternal Grandfather: French Canadian-Native American
Paternal Grandmother: Irish
Maternal Grandfather: Polish-German
Maternal Grandmother: Russian

So, to offend anyone sensitive about ethnic slurs, I am a Frog-Injun-Polack-Kraut-Mick-Ruskie.

And damn PROUD of it!!

Jim McAllister said...

CJ,

But I can say for an absolute fact that Bodo & his b-buddies at AzCentral ruined the experience for me.

Your assessment of Bodo is correct; he is a total loser.

Just to keep the record straight though about his blogging, he was never asked to be a blogger at AZ central when it began in 2006.

Mickey Greenburg, me, Bob Amento, and 9 others were asked to be bloggers on Dec. 5, 2006 when the blogs began. Bodo was never asked. In fact, he called me a few months after the blogs began asking how he could join. Even then he was weird as he started reciting some dumb ass poetry that he had written.

I guess he could be considered a "special" blogger if "special" is used as a term to denote being "retarded." LOL

As far as Bodo getting to keep his blog under the new set up, it's not so. He is there because he asked to be put on and they need bodies since most of the people on that list never participate.

I was asked initially because I was the top blogger under AZ Central and had a good following. I turned them down because I didn't like the setup but last November at election time they put me on anyway to comment on that event so I write about two blogs a month there now.

Happily, I get more hits than any one, especially Bodo which has to drive him mad! He can't figure out that nobody likes him or cares what he has to say. Kind of like we have felt since he first made his appearance.

It reminds me of when Andrew Lloyd Webber said to someone that he didn't understand why people take an immediate dislike for him.

The guy answered: "It saves time."

Same with Bozo.

..you heard it right and the people in the audience stood and applauded- did I miss that being covered on NBC or CNN??.

It wouldn't be too much of an out liner of a thought that this guy is just not popular enough to have legitimately gotten re elected.. but that's exactly what our leaders are telling us, people just love this guy.

..by the way this video was shot in 2011 before the election.

Ron Paul was warning us about the folly of having our military occupy the 3rd. world, but we just laughed at his naivete- he knew that the fastest way to deplete the military is by deploying them all over Africa spreading the disease and getting mired in foreign politics like he has in Libya, Egypt and now Syria.

It's the Cloward Piven approach to the ruination of the military with the same approach he uses domestically to destroy the economy and it's working.

A great American man once boldly stated.."I have a dream" and it got him killed.

fast forward.. 2013/1984.

Let me tell you how it will be

(Ah, ah, Mr. Major)
If you don't want to pay some more
(Ah, ah, Mr. [..])

Yeah, I'm the taxman

CJinPhoenix said...

Yeah, me too with the German ancestry...In fact, my family tree even includes a long line of Krauts whose surname was Krout. I even have a few pictures of my Krouts & they looked like Krauts. All of my German ancestors as far as I can tell were here before the American Revolution though. And the only other branches that I have ever connected back to Europe came here from Ireland. I also have the American Indian too.

Frankie Z. knew how to throw a good rant, check out the lyrics of "Trouble every day"- a little social commentary on the riots and the Great Society.. he was a bit eccentric but told it how it was/is..

.."Well I'm about to get sick
From watchin' my TV
Been checkin' out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it's gonna change, my friend
Is anybody's guess"- and it goes on...."Hey, you know something people?
I'm not black
But there's a whole lots a times
I wish I could say I'm not white"

..I wonder why he never had any top forty hits?- his music was probably just too hard to dance to eh?.
He should have been a hit during disco tho.."Stayin' alive- stayin' alive"..

.."The Pennsylvania State Police have charged a western Pennsylvania judge with stealing cocaine from evidence in cases he presided over before he abruptly resigned last year".

Thirty years this judge has held court and sentenced countless people to very long times in prison and what do you know?..

The whole pot of stew is corrupt, where do you go to find any sense of justice when judges are either absolute hypocrites like this guy is or taking bribes to send people to a private prison for longer terms?

It's a growing problem beginning with Eric Holder and leads right down to some cop on the side of a road taking matters into his own hands instead of doing what he is supposed to - keeping the peace
.. it's always the taxpayers who end up paying for his issues.

When the economy falls this time who knows how far will go when those with nothing realize they have no recourse?
..keep your weapons.

Jim McAllister said...

It's just like this loser federal judge saying Arpaio is guilty of discrimination against Mexicans.

Let's see, hmmmmmm.... we're just north of Mexico, the border is porous, and there are Mexicans who can't speak English and with no proof of citizenship hustling for jobs on street corners in Phoenix.

Maybe, just MAYBE, those guys are here illegally. So, the sheriff does his job and the next thing we know some judge (probably under orders from the big O,) is harassing Joe.

Guess what Barack, there probably aren't going to be any Norwegians illegally crossing the border from Mexico.

Obama is so obvious in his stupidity that if it wasn't for voters who like free shit, he wouldn't stand a chance. That's the level to which this country has sunk.

midnightsstaff said...

.."if it wasn't for voters who like free shit, he wouldn't stand a chance."..

I tend to agree, just don't lose sight that nothing will stop them for giving HRC a shot at bayoneting the corpse.

But back to the subject, it appears that Issa has been forced into dragging that great defender of both the sixteenth as well as the fifth amendment back in for another do over.

It also occurred to me that the most convenient solution to the White Mosque is if she decided to leave a confession and end it all- if she uses a handgun that reopens the gun issue...win-win.

I bet that has occurred to her as well.

She should move in with Ted Cruz or Ron Paul until after they have her testimony.

She is in a real corner on this one..

http://news.sky.com/story/1095540/sweden-riots-unrest-spreads-beyond-stockholm

Ya nearly have to go to the British press exclusively for any real news on the unicorn worshiping movement towards diversity and inclusion that has swept Europe.

.."In a country famed for its model welfare state, the rioting has exposed a fault-line between a well-off majority and a minority - often young people with immigrant backgrounds.

Many of those from the underclass are poorly educated, cannot find work and feel pushed to the edge of society.

Underscoring Sweden's ambivalence toward its open immigration policies, an anti-immigrant party has risen to third in polls this year and some analysts say the riots could swell its ranks."..

What was it again that led to the rise of Adolph Hitler?
..high unemployment with the youth.
..a collapsed economy with little to hope for.

It's worse this time because you can throw in the Crusades part whatever it's up to now ..and we are now calling illegals "undocumented citizens".

Time to break out the e-tool, fill some sandbags and shelter in place I guess.
.. "could you hand me one of those fruitcakes mate?"..

midnightsstaff said...

Cj if you get a chance take a look at this article I ran across..

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-25/guest-post-our-american-pravda

.."the Nixon administration had indeed deliberately abandoned many hundreds of American POWs in Vietnam at the close of the war, and our government afterward spent decades covering up this shameful crime."
.. it goes further..

.."Although a major focus of Schanberg’s account was the central role that Sen. John McCain had played in leading the later cover-up, the national media ignored these detailed charges during McCain’s bitter 2008 presidential campaign against Barack Obama. One of America’s most distinguished living journalists published what was surely “the story of the century” and none of America’s newspapers took notice."

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/silent-treatment/

..This article doesn't take a red vs. blue pill approach, it's pretty long and takes some concentration so don't just give it the once over- we have some systemic problems that a legitimate press would have brought to light and it's been going on long before I recently woke up.. but the press doesn't do it's Constitutionally protected duty and I'm pretty sure you know why just like I and a lot of other people do."

I'm reminded of one of the iconic statements in modern cinema.."you can't handle the truth".

..maybe he is right.

midnightsstaff said...

..well it looks like it's just me on another Filibuster Sunday and frankly I'm getting tired of it.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend folks.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, federal judges will be the ruination of this country. When the vast majority of illegals are brown skinned should Joe be looking for blond haired, blue eyed Swedes?

Sweden is having their own problems with immigrants. They're a socialist utopia. I guess the immigrants didn't get their fair share of free stuff.

My question is why would anyone want to live in Sweden?

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

The muslims are rioting in Stockholm. I don't know how that will go over with those people. They always seem so placid about everything but I can't see them standing by for a bunch of crap from the muslims. One more country heading toward ruination because of those a-holes while we sit here with a muslim president.

For a good laugh at how idiotic liberals are, read this from today's Republic by Valdez.

She is upset because the border fence is too high and people are getting hurt falling off it when they sneak in.

Yep, you read right.

.."A man who claimed to be a Salafist-Wahhibist cleric put the word out on Twitter that women should not flip on air conditioners at home because it sends the signal they’re home and that could lead to moral depravities.

The alleged cleric said “turning on the cooler ventilator is prohibited for women in the absence of their husbands [because] the woman’s act is very dangerous, and may bring about immorality in the society. When she turns the cooler on, someone may notice her presence home, and this might bring about immorality,” International Business Times reported"..

Hey.. anyone still believe that the GOP has any credibility left?
take a look at this article..

.."http://theulstermanreport.com/2013/05/26/top-republican-strategist-cashing-checks-to-help-destroy-gun-rights/"

.."Mike Murphy is a well known (and reasonably well regarded) GOP strategist. Viewed as somewhat moderate, those views match his high profile GOP political clients that include both John McCain and Mitt Romney. Essentially, Murphy has been instrumental then in forming the much more tepid (and failing) Republican messaging at the national level for nearly the last decade."

..So the GOP is taking money from Bloomberg to further gun legislation eh?

..I really don't think there is a bottom..

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

It's all coming apart while our fearless phony leader is on his feel good tour to Oklahoma.

Quite the joke.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

I really laughed when I read that column. Poor illegals getting injured because the fence is too high.

It's hard to believe that Valdez actually gets paid to write that stupid crappola.

I was going to send her an email giving my opinion but figured, Why?

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Love the Wash Times piece about women and air conditioners.

I wondered why mine is always on so high when I come home to Barb!

midnightsstaff said...

Two recent examples of how to deal with terror... erh, I mean liberals..

One, the NRA went on offense and beat back the gun grabbing terrorists and sent a message.
.."Don't tread on me".

Two, the Boy Scouts of America tried to deal with them and split the difference..
.."Don't hurt me".. they might as well disband.

If the Boy Scouts have the idea that they can make deals with the politically correct destroyers of our culture they might as well fold tents, obviously this was just another a tactic by the left to destroy our culture like they are doing with marriage.

People of good character will rally around a good fight, but turn their heels on the Neville Chamberlain approach.

I feel sorry for the Scouts and the loss of what they represent but if they have no more backbone to resist obvious attacks then they should just go quietly into the dark and quit whining about it.

I will continue to support the NRA and GOA but won't lift a finger to help someone who is not interested in helping themselves,
I guess they will just have to bribe a politician instead, maybe a fag politician. After all there are plenty of those available.

Jim McAllister said...

I was never into scouting. My older brother was huge in it; became an Eagle scout with a ton of those merit badges. The last time I saw him that was about the only accomplishment he had ever made.

I gave the Boy Scouts a shot but bowed out after two weeks since I kept falling asleep at the boring meetings. Tying different kinds of knots was not my idea of a good time.

Everyone is caving these days. Fortunately, most things go in cycles and this may do the same.

Too many people are worried about hurt feelings. To them I say, "Guess,what? If this is the most your poor feelings ever get hurt, you will be doing well."

How about Barry's phony "feel good" tour to Oklahoma. It's a shame some can't figure out he is a politician first and a humanitarian far down his list of priorities.

Maybe they should talk to the residents of Louisiana.

midnightsstaff said...

If I was the gov. of Oklahoma I would have sent the State Police to arrest him with a "fill in the charges later" warrant.

My old fishing buddy who was a Marine Corps Officer told me that the only difference between the Marine Corps and the Boy Scouts was the Scouts had adult leadership..

..man I miss Barry, he was a mustang and they make the best leaders.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, e-mailing anyone at the Republic is a waste of time. I used to e-mail Benson all the time until he blocked them.

Ever notice that Valdez never responds to any column she writes?
Of course when 99% of the comments are against her it's understandable.

The next time she goes to Mexico with her Mexican husband the government should revoke her passport and make her stay there.

Better yet she should take Roberts Benson and Montini with her and have the government pull all their passports.

PROUD said...

I think the pravda article is bunk. Trying to fan the flames of conspiracy fans everywhere. Yes, true, two FBI guys were killed in a fall from a helicopter, (no reports it was black), but there doesn't seem any credible evidence to back up the claim that these men had any involvement with the apprehension of the Boston bombers...

There were lots of reports that said the older Tsarnaev brother was in shot in a shoot out with LOCAL police, not the FBI...

And the actual cause of death was his being run over by a vehicle which was being driven by his little brother.

Whatever sells papers I guess...?



PROUD said...

I doubt "the government" would do anything to impede or stifle liberal reporters as mike suggests. After all, the government happens to be as liberal as they come....

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

I always have my flag out on holidays when it is appropriate. Usually a guy up the street and me are the only ones that do it but I notice this week that there were quite a few. I'm a lot more proud of my neighbors.

I still have my good conduct ribbon in my desk drawer too and my Langerkoph 603rd AC&W NCO Open mess beer stein.

Oh, how I miss those 10 cent Heinekins and 15 cent Lowenbraus!

Jim McAllister said...

What a bunch of crap!

For yet unknown reasons, the two agents fell out of the helicopter and were killed in the fall.

I wonder what those two guys knew that the govt. didn't want spread around. This should be investigated but I don't know by who. They are all crooked!

midnightsstaff said...

http://cairnsnews.wordpress.com/2013/05/25/fbi-agents-killed-in-virginia-were-investigating-the-boston-bombing/

There are a lot of sites all over the world saying the same thing.. these two agents were wrapped up in the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev fish in a barrel shooting- and I agree that Pravda probably is jumping the shark.
It just seems strange that these things keep happening to witnesses..

Seal team 6 come to mind- but then if it weren't for the ball spiking going on we should have never learned who they were.

do you believe in endless coincidences?
we may never find out..

how about Mike Murphy taking Bloomberg anti second amendment money? is that a problem?

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

Valdez is a total joke just like Benson.

I about fell out of the chair laughing at her comments about the wall being too high. It shows the mentality there that they let that be published.

Last week they had a three part series with photos about how sad it was that some Mexican family was separated because of the border.

Benson is really bad. He is ridiculously one sided. I like Ramirez but I notice they aren't using him as much lately. They go with that lefty Luckovich on Benson's day off.

Yep I keep my good conduct ribbon tucked away right next to the fire watch ribbon, it reminds me of my youth- I earned both of them.. haha.

Actually the good conduct ribbon should have been awarded with an asterisk in my case.

Well it's a day to remember and I have done a bit of it today, I hate to see the vandals pulling this once great beacon to Liberty and refuge from tyranny down into the third world mud of a common dictatorship but to ignore the fact is no different than what the British did years ago.

They thought that they could ignore the corrosion and outgrow it I suppose.

Look at Europe and Britain today, they are losing the modern day Crusades as we speak.

midnightsstaff said...

Anyone interested in what McCain is capable of should read this article on how he blocked information on POW's from coming to light.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/mccain-and-the-pow-cover-up/

.."Some of McCain’s fellow captives at Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi didn’t share his views about prisoners left behind. Before he died of leukemia in 1999, retired Col. Ted Guy, a highly admired POW and one of the most dogged resisters in the camps, wrote an angry open letter to the senator in an MIA newsletter—a response to McCain’s stream of insults hurled at MIA activists. Guy wrote, “John, does this [the insults] include Senator Bob Smith [a New Hampshire Republican and activist on POW issues] and other concerned elected officials? Does this include the families of the missing where there is overwhelming evidence that their loved ones were ‘last known alive’? Does this include some of your fellow POWs?"

I put him in the same category as a Ted Kennedy or Al Franken.
..he is a fraud and looks to me like has a lot of blood on his hands but what the hell do I know?.

Ask them if they know the original names of those holidays. Since they don't know the difference between them they will never know "Decoration Day" and Armistice Day."

They will sure know how to deposit a check with their iPhone while driving down the 101 though.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Unless it's fun nobody cares. I still say the draft should never have been dropped. We would have a lot more mature people walking around instead of a lot of self absorbed asses.

midnightsstaff said...

To support a draft we would have needed to manufacture some more war to justify the draft.

I think we have enough stupidity going on as it is already without generating more.

The military was never designed to be a social engineering project to straighten out government created criminal behavior for our nation's youth.
..that's the peace corps or some other useless waste of resources.

The purpose of the military is to provide a strong national defense for our protection..

a DEFENSE..

..not to interject ourselves in endless global conflicts that we have no business in.

PROUD said...

This should rub everyone the wrong way....?

The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.

The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars and a handsome 6% commission to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum you ask?

Why the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, that's who. What a bunch of crooks we have running this country!

Senator Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, stand to make a fortune. His firm, C.R. I., is the sole real estate company offering these properties for sale. Of course, C.R.I. will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.

All of these properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S. The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn't even have to pay property taxes on these subject properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn't afford to pay the electric bill?

Well, the Post Office is.

How does a powerful U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal?

A powerful United States Senator's husband is standing by, all ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.

No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollar's worth of quasi-public assets.

it's not just the Democrats playing us for fools and it's way past time for any political fix.
At this moment we need at minimum five hundred gallows and that's just to start the clean up in Congress.

PROUD said...

Middy....I spelled out what I believe to be a simple, already constitutional,fix to pretty much ALL the problems we face. My idea?

R.A.I.N. (Replace All Incumbents Now)

IF, in just one major election cycle, the American people would, collectively, get mad enough to muster the nerve to THROW EACH AND EVERY INCUMBENT OUT OF ELECTED OFFICE, (regardless of party)...

It would be the second coming of THE SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD and forever change the balance of power from a people who fear and are servants to their government....to... a government who fears and is servants to the people!(now where have we heard that concept?)

Sure, some good would be tossed with the bad, that's the price to be paid, but the new politicians, having just witnessed the power of the people for the first time, would certainly have a more than healthy respect for the power of the people....And yes that would mean inexperienced leadership,but isn't that exactly what we had when this nation was started?

None of this revolution is subversive, none requires any new legislation, all that is needed is for the folks to make a decision to actually take back their country.

My RAIN initiative is word for word what Thomas Jefferson had in mind when he said:

~~“When the people fear the government there is tyranny,~~ when the government fears the people there is liberty.”~~

Time to put some fear in the arrogant, self serving ass-hats we have allowed to make themselves into this nations RULING CLASS!!

midnightsstaff said...

Are you saying that this approach has any chance of actually happening?
do you think two fools like Maxine Waters or John McCain are in any danger of ever losing an election?

I personally wonder if the House can even hold on much less re capture the Senate now that the IRS is clamping down on donations.
..don't believe me?

Just how are you going to get the same people that voted for what we have now to now vote against the same thing?
..and how do you get people working for the system to vote to tear down that type of system?

Listen to KFYI for an hour in the morning and pay attention to the lies Flake is spewing on "intelligent gun legislation" they are championing.

I say fuck him, KFYI and the unicorn he rode in on- you are entitled to your own opinion.

Arizona... reddest of red states just voted in Juan McAmnesty for six more years and now he has infected the non thinking Flake making him do his dirty work in pushing for gun control so the GOP can continue getting money from Bloomberg for Christ sake!.. how much more does it take?

I have told Jim that I think Arizona will be a nice power blue state in two, maybe three election cycles and nothing has changed my mind.

Try to keep in mind that we are on the same side of the argument, just differ in how we see the issue- if what happened to this country between 2009 and 2012 couldn't move the political needle then just exactly what the hell can?

in short, the GOP in it's present form has no answers to the Statist purge that is coming
but I can't even get the Republicans to honestly look at their own party corruption.. we can't even get past step one of admitting a problem and there are eleven more to go..
Al Einstein defined insanity.

Do you admit that every day more third world trash is paid to filter in and vote in our elections? with that fact alone explain how are we going to vote every incumbent out?

midnightsstaff said...

We can never out bid the Statists they will just double the promise..

The political approach is a mirage at this point and wasting time trying it will end in disaster.

I believe Ben Franklin diplomat to France said it best...

"Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?"

"A Republic, if you can keep it."..

I think we all see what he was talking about now.

PROUD said...

"We can never out bid the Statists they will just double the promise"

Agree, after all, they're bidding with OUR money.

I still believe there's a tremendous amount of unrest in most circles (even some discontent in Maxine's ghetto)that could coalesce into a movement.

In today's society, any movement would have to be seen as popular and cool, the informed would join because they are aware of the corruption and unbalanced, unchecked, political power being wielded...the young and stupid would join because it would be a way to make a statement against society (or as we used to call it, The Man), and the low information voters would eventually glam on, like the sheep they are because other folks were doing it ...

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

There was no war when I went in but there is always attrition because of those being discharged. They have to be replaced to keep up the force in case of war.

By having every guy obligated to serve it gives them a good dose of real life and teaches them respect and how to handle themselves.

Just look at the ungrateful, soft, spoiled, rude, young clowns walking around today. A dose of the military would tech them some values.

I say you are making two mistakes, one in thinking that they are actually interested in anything other than what they can steal and the greater mistake would be to assume they use the same criteria for logic that you, I, or any reasonable, moral person does.

No it will take blood in the streets to get their attention and by the time that happens HLS will be in the streets in full battle gear defending any threat to status quo.

There is a reason they ran that test run in Boston- to see if we had any spine left.. and we don't, the subjected cheered HLS for invoking martial law and training them to cower inside, I mean "shelter inside" for no reason.

History wrongly ascribed to John Adams his quote when he was talking about the French Revolution and said 1/3 supported, 1/3 opposed and 1/3 didn't know.
He was talking about the French Revolution, but the fact remains that still less than a majority of British subjects in the colonies supported the final revolution of 1776 that had been building for twenty some years.
Ben Franklin's own son William was a supporter of the Crown as the governor of New Jersey throughout the conflict,they both died hating each other over the issue.
Many say it was the first American Civil war.

In short, these things are never cut and dried nor are they settled before dinner tonight.

I certainly hope you are right and I am dead wrong but history indicates differently.

Freedom is worth fighting for, but not all people deserve freedom- I think we can agree.
Also a whole lot of the freeloaders in any society are natural born slaves- our first mistake was giving blanket citizenry with all the rights including voting to those who don't understand it nor care,
same as with illegal immigration/voting rights that is on it's way.

I respect your opinion but respectfully disagree with your conclusion.

Maybe where the whole thing started going wrong was when America decided that instead of sweating their ass off, building railroads, businesses from nothing but a vision and a promise of a fair playing field switched directions and hired a few slick economists and went about hand in glove with the government to grow wealth through punishing achievement.

This probably wouldn't have been possible except with the establishment of an irresponsible taxing authority carefully crafted by special interests.

The problem with the system today is same as the problems with welfare and unemployment/disability etc- it's simply too intertwined in everybody's lives,

This is the power of talk radio.
