In 1928 the Democrats ran a governor from New York named Al Smith against Herbert Hoover.  Smith lost but still became famous for his line “Let’s take a look at the record.”

In a tribute to Smith, let’s take a look at another famous Democrat named Obama and his record.  As you review that record, do you get the feeling that Nixon was an angel compared to Obama?   Nixon had Watergate which caused his resignation.  Obama has a laundry list that fortunately even the Democrats are starting to recognize.

“I know nothing, I am not here, I did not 
even get up this morning!”
When will proceedings against him finally start?  Will Verizon finally wake up this country about this guy?  Two good indications are that he is losing some major supporters who have championed him from the beginning:  The New York Times and the Huffington Post although the Times, who initially stated that Obama’s government “has lost all credibility” has chickened out and revised its statement to add “on this issue”. The liberal Huffington Post says “Obama, Verizon, and Executive Power Run Amok”.

With that said, let’s briefly “take a look at the record” via a brief overview.  No sense going into details as you readers and I have been discussing this stuff for a sufficient amount of time to understand each point.  It’s just that with a laundry list this long, will anything happen or will guys like Holder and Obama continue to get away with their Sergeant Schultz imitation:  “I know nothing, I am not here, I did not even get up this morning!”

1.  Fast and Furious
2.  AP wire taps
3.  IRS scandal
4.  Benghazi
5.  Verizon
6.  National Labor Relations Board illegal appointments
7.  Sibelius and her HHS trying to illegally solicit funds for Obamacare

Nixon breaks into one office and he is kicked out.  It seems mild compared to the above list.  As Yakov Smirnoff would say: “What a country!”

By the way; you had to dig a bit this week to find the unemployment numbers for May.  That could only mean one thing:  they went up.  Bingo!  Sure enough, up .1 to 7.6 from 7.5 last month.  It’s meaningless since the real unemployment is over 13% but interesting in how the news is conveyed in such a partial manner.

Lana Jefferies doesn't agree with anything that President Obama is doing. She's Second Amendment friendly. A staunch Republican.

Smart girl!

midnightsstaff said...

Tom Purcell gave the best thirty min. web broadcast I have heard lately on his Friday the 7th. show.. he is one smart feller who pretty much has figured out the game.

I keep hoping he will get exposure somewhere with an audience but eventually someone's going to notice- one way or the other.

Jim McAllister said...

I remember Tom from the days at AZ Central blogs. I'll check him out.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, the difference between Nixon and Obama is Nixon was a Republican. The main stream media hates Republicans and since Obama is a good liberal Democrat he gets a pass.

One of the more colorful members of the Watergate break in was G. Gordon Liddy, an ex FBI agent. He was arrested and thrown in the D.C jail. He was brought to trial and put on the stand and when asked if he promised to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth he replied NO. They threw him back in jail and he was later pardoned by president Jimmy Carter.

midnightsstaff said...

I voted for Dick Nixon when I was young.
Nixon opened up China to the west, Obama seems to be pushing China away
and deliberately disrespecting them.
Nixon started an ill advised War On Drugs, Obama seems to be using that
very same long lost yet still sustained war to sabotage the second amendment and return us to slavery.
Nixon actually got pulled into a scandal by attempting to cover up a amaturish
break in and burglarly and of course had no direct paper trail leading to him.
Every one of Obama's scandals are a result from the projection of a tyrannical
despotic lack of governance and of course have no direct paper trail leading to him..
Nixon was surrounded by CIA operatives, Obama is surrounded by Islamic operatives.
Dick Nixon closed the gold window once again allowing citizens to own gold, Obama
will more than likely attempt the same as FDR through the "Emergency Bank Act II" and try to nationalize it again to save his inflated currency.

.. in short nothing of value either of property or concerning personal freedoms are safe in this level of blatant, unrestrained hypocrisy in government.

I doubt I would vote for Dick Nixon twice, but I never even once considered voting
for Baraaaak Obama.

Glo said...

Middy: I voted for Nixon in '72 - my first vote, and the first election 18-year-olds could vote in. I still don't regret it. I just thought it was stupid to have been involved in the whole Watergate thing because his re-election seemed virtually assured.

I remember the night he resigned in '74: I actually still have the cassette tape I made off the TV. Of course, most of my college buddies were thrilled, and I went along with them to the nightclub Shaboo near UConn to celebrate. It was a beautiful night, I was wearing a yellow blouse, and I almost kissed a guy named Henry. Funny the moments of your life that you remember vividly.

midnightsstaff said...

Hey Glo, Yeah I have been noticing that my memory gets jarred pretty easily lately, a certain song, the lingering mustiness after a summer rain- you know the triggers that release not repressed but layered thoughts of things long past.

The mind is a wonderful thing when it's used right and I can't imagine the potential if we were all able to simply focus.

Watching those Lawrence Welk shows on utube for instance is a gold mine of forgotten memories for me.
One thought leads to another when I get in that mode- like remembering my mom listening to the Gary Moore show every morning and doing mom work in the tiny kitchen were my earliest memories in Tulsa.
Nobody sits out on the porch enjoying the evening, letting the kids play hide and go seek, talking to neighbors and friends like we did when I was a kid anymore.
..fortress America.

There is no link left for me in that era now that mom and all my uncles and aunts are gone, no one to talk to about those memories growing up, it's a dead end street.

Reminds me of a twilight zone episode about some guy condemned to living eternally among the living, watching his aging friends, wives and kids die leading to yet another strained situation..

..that impossibility became a scary thought to a youngster like me.

But voting aye for Nixon wasn't a real informed vote in my case it was just the way we did things in the family, by the way no one else in my company was real impressed with the way the war was going either..
but that just opens up another can of best left uncovered thoughts.

Pevie, former political strategist , Hicks said...

Wondering, why the hell anyone would pay Carbonite to monitor and back up their files--

Gotta go, building a recording studio in an abandon 71 Pinto, my landscaper's wife / cleaning woman is our corporation CEO and primary partner. Had to stop paying my bills and become a deadbeat to afford the Pinto but somehow, the fact that I'm fiscally irresponsible hasn't stopped politicians and music executives calling me for my advice on business and politics.

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go." - Oscar Wilde

I think we know to whom this quote applies ...

midnightsstaff said...

One big difference between Nixon and the Unclean is political operatives came to Nixon and told him he was going to be impeached so he stepped aside to both avoid that embarrassment and to save the nation from civil unrest.

That is not going to ever happen again because planned civil unrest is just another stepping stone in the socialist playbook to be used to further destroy the nation.
The Unclean will be removed only when his handlers either decide he is done or he dies by natural causes- actually he is a distraction to the real designs we face so it doesn't matter.

Just wait for the point sometime in the near future when someone on the undesirable list's house is on fire and the fire dept. either gets the word to stand down and return to the station house or the 911 call is never completed in time to respond.. computers are that fast, easy to program and leave no paper trail.

.."oh but they would never do that!"..
It's called normalcy bias, you simply can't comprehend because it hasn't happened yet and every reasonable person suffers from a degree of it.

midnightsstaff said...

.."When Lincoln said that a nation of freemen could be destroyed only by suicide, and when Tocqueville predicted the slow death of American liberty through soft despotism, they were warning against what is now sometimes called the "normalcy bias" -- the mind's preference for denying significant but incremental changes in favor of the psychological comfort of believing that everything is essentially as it has been".

..once again I am reminded the iconic phrase "the mind is a terrible thing to waste" which was the inspiration of the contemporary black philosopher at the United Negro College Fund Forrest Long, who is not to be confused with another contemporary white philosopher by the name of Forrest Gump.

Glo, No Flower Child She said...


Nope, no flower child. I was one of those ultra-serious college students who was only interested in an education. I confess, however, that in the late 60s during high school I wore love beads and nehru shirts. And, shockingly, to this day I have never had so much as a marijuana ciggie. Straight arrow from the word go.

midnightsstaff said...

..Anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with the situation going on right now in Turkey should watch this recent background video.

..there is always a flash point that starts these things, this is the result of government trampling on the rights of the governed again and the people are not taking it.

Glo, probably not in Turkey said...

Ah yes, Middy: Turkey.

I saved enough to finance a two-week birthday vacation in September - to Turkey. The flight is paid for, but not the balance of the tour itself. I'm packed and ready. I even got Turkish lira. I have been SO excited to go on this milestone birthday (60th) trip, a photographer's dream.

And now I have been talking to my travel agent about an alternative trip, probably to Germany. This will be more expensive, and so will the flight change, including any change fees.

Of course, things could change, but the longer I wait the less chance I'll be able to get the tour that I want and the flight costs will go up. So I am waiting until the end of June to see if the darling Turks simmer down, or if this becomes Egypt all over again (look what happened to their tourist economy).

While I may sympathize to some degree about their rights to revolt, this, quite frankly, is royally fukking up my long-time plans.

midnightsstaff said...

Spoken like a true Americano...

Try to avoid taking holidays in areas experiencing obvious strained relations such as Yemen, most of Northern Africa and probably want to avoid Syria right now as well.

Lebanon, Cyprus or Greece are probably all o-k if you like TJ style poverty- Spain and Italy probably will be rioting before the Summer is out..

..interesting article about how the French are finding arabic versions of the SAM 7 shoulder fired missiles for dummies training manual in their raids in Mali- just wait until that new reality soaks in to the traveling public.
oh yeah and they have the US versions as well that Obama gave, erh I mean the liberators displacing Kad- or Gad- affi in Libya liberated while killing a few Americans.

happy flying..

Glo-Americano said...

Well, Middy, if by true Americano you mean someone who has always played by the rules, never lived above her means, and worked her curvaceous ass off for every single thing she has without screwing anyone over, then, yep, that's what I am.

Mike Slater said...

Now that I've skipped of Ricky's inane and idiotic comments we can perhaps get back to some adult conversation.

Middy, I watched the You tube on Turkey and those people reminded me of the occupy wall street bunch in this country.

midnightsstaff said...

just pokin a bit at you Glo, seeing how thick your skin is..
hey no joke on the problems brewing all over the continent right now, why not some nice place like New Zealand? or the Costa Rica rain forest?

If you do go to Germany I guess you will make the Octoberfest season so the trip won't be a total loss.
I forgot to mention Florida as being off limits, got a trial going on that is certain to cause riots no matter what the outcome.

midnightsstaff said...

OWS might be the exact opposite of what's going on in Turkey, for the most part it was directed at the mythical one percent not the tyrannical government that is sure to send anyone they disagree with places they might never return from.

The tyrant in Turkey was an appointment by GWB- the same guy who gave us today's police state with this idiotic war on terror.

We have had two Civil Wars in our history so far, and I expect another one in the near future.

But I suppose it's how the media spins it as to how the optics present themselves.
The British media called the ragtag bunch in the Colonies a band of malcontents for forty years leading up to the first American Civil War I would imagine- and the press today is much worse that the one that was spinning the story then.

midnightsstaff said...

And what I mean about the Revolutionary war being basically a civil war was the Colonies were founded for nearly two hundred years with every generation being born and raised a British citizen, so many were sympathetic and owed their allegiance to the Crown.

We were fortunate that time, things have gotten much more difficult but the situation is the same.

Lincoln was not the angelic figure all people were taught in state controlled government schools- after all he suspended the Constitution many times and ignored due process.

.. in fact he might be the very reason we went to war instead of solving the states rights issues without losing half the nation killing each other.

..well that statement alone ought to piss off a few Repulidemocrats out there- but it's time to put down the pom poms and honestly look at the situation.

BTW aren't you happy we freed the slaves only to watch LBJ put them and thirty percent of the white race right back on the plantation either through welfare or affirmative action fueled bureaucrat hiring?
.. I know it makes me all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.

midnightsstaff said...

Nikkei yowzer!
.. maybe the second half of trading today will be better.
It's a strange way they operate the market.. they seem to take an hour three saki/sushi break in the middle of the trading day.. curious people those Asians.

Glo said...

Sadly, Middy, I'm not a beer drinker, so Oktoberfest holds no allure for me. The tour takes in Munich, Franfurt, Berlin, Black Forest, Hamelin, and other sights, and also has an optional trip to Dachau. I am especially interested in that one because I was always fascinated by WW II. I visited a concetration camp last year when I was in Serbia. It was very eerie, and had an atmosphere drenched in oppression. Amazing what human beings can do to one another.

And still do. Technology has progressed to a staggering level, but mankind has been going backwards for quite awhile now.

Jim McAllister said...


I was stationed outside of Kaiserslautern in Germany from June to October of 1963. Had a fun summer in Germany. I took the train to Frankfort over July 4 weekend that year. Had quite a time!

It's hard to believe that was 50 years ago already.

midnightsstaff said...

.."And still do. Technology has progressed to a staggering level, but mankind has been going backwards for quite awhile now".
"Men go mad in herds and only come to their sense slowly, and one by one"... Charles MacKay

.."Lips that touch wine".. whoops that's France or Unicornafornia- I get them confused.

So don't drink the beer.. from what I understand there is a lot more than just getting a load on during Octobeerfest..
but that's the problem, if you go to a social function and don't drink everyone thinks you are an alcoholic.

Besides the average multi generational Northern European can drink gallons of the stuff all night long and never have to go to the loo- you simply can't keep up.

..that aside Germany might be the safest place to avoid those embarrassing moments of true poverty in the streets and human misery leading to riotous behavior.

..After all watching impoverished people fighting with the King's men in the streets is certainly nothing to interest the average person looking for a nice relaxing holiday eh?

.."It's outrageous and bloody indecent of the buggers to riot during vacation season- wot?"..

haha.. don't get upset.. you should know by now how I like to poke holes in the thin veneer of the illusion of Civility.

midnightsstaff said...

You do remember my favorite shows are Monte Python, Arrested Development and Fawlty Towers.. or was it "Farty towels"?..

Glo said...

Middy: I LOVE Fawlty Towers.

"Pay no attention to him - he's from Barcelona!"


midnightsstaff said...

.."twenty quid on Dragonfly and keep it under your hat"...
..Basil es no rat he es haamsteer...
..I forget everything mister Fawlty.


..speaking of great brews, you need to get to Safeway Jim, they have best of Belgium twelve packs on sale- Stella, Hoegararden, and Leffe mixed, good deal.. might have to get another to celebrate Glo's invading Prussia.

You do realize that your neighbor Bodo is pretty unique, after all he was born a Nazi and probably will die a globalist neo nazi while rejecting freedom in the process as intellectual weakness- he is a study in himself, disturbing but interesting.

midnightsstaff said...

oh.. that might have sounded insensitive and contemptuous of me- academic blowholes who have never (fill in the blanks) give me a bad taste in my mouth. worthless cousin is another- actually a couple of them now that I think of it.

whooiee! aapl takes a nose dive in both the first and the last hour today with some volume.
..earthquake weather as we used to call it in the land of the Golden Unicorn. don't need a saddle to ride a unicorn they say, all of them have a nice smooth canter and some can even fly- just ask Jerry Brown.

Mike Slater said...

Middy you're probably right about another civil war. The last one caused more problems than it solved.

The next civil war won't be so much about race as it will be about economics and ideology. It will be between those that work and pay taxes against the free shit army. It will also be between the conservatives and liberals.

Since liberals don't like guns they will be at a distinct disadvantage.

Jim McAllister said...


Do you remember Liddy's radio show years ago? I used to listen to him every day when i was making calls for Procter and Gamble.

He really hated Clinton!

Jim McAllister said...


I couldn't believe it when Obama got the nomination. But, the other choice was Hillary and she would have won too. At least she was a citizen even if she did cry a lot during the primaries.

Jim McAllister said...


I went along with them to the nightclub Shaboo near UConn to celebrate. It was a beautiful night, I was wearing a yellow blouse, and I almost kissed a guy named Henry. Funny the moments of your life that you remember vividly.

Quite a memory. Almost kissed? What went wrong?

Jim McAllister said...


Durward Kirby was Moore's sidekick on that morning show. he grew up across the river from Cincy in Covington.

midnightsstaff said...

Well for any of you die hard Republicans that somehow think Jeff Flake is anything but another sell out RINO you better be sitting down.

Jim McAllister said...


I got drunk a lot in Germany. Lowenbrau 10 cents, Heineken's 15 cents. That was in 1963 and one of our officers had just made captain so he bought all night.

It was like a dream come true. The kind of thing we remember as life changing when we are 22.

Jim McAllister said...


Don't say "curvaceous ass" in front of a horny man!

Jim McAllister said...

Fawlty Towers only had 12 episodes. It was a great show but was British and on PBS. Noty enough viewers maybe.

John Cleese and Prunella Scales were great as was Manuel from Barcelona.

Glo, wishing She'd Kissed Henry said...

Jim - It was night time, and we were outside and talking, and the mood was ripe for ... that kiss. I don't know why I didn't take the opportunity, and I've always wished I had. But at that point in my life I was such a pathetic little wallflower, and didn't have the guts.

midnightsstaff said...

I never thought much of the Fonzie Fonzarilla role Henry Winkler played in Happy Days but his role as George Bluth's attorney was funny as hell.
they mocked everyone, attorneys, prison guards, White Supremacists, Mexican housekeepers, hypocritical socialite environmentalists, Tract developers.. you name it.

midnightsstaff said...

Japanese market is 500+ down and still diving- yesterday it made a strong finish, today we will see.

the 1986 amnesty bill was the death knell for California, before the 1990 election it was a strong Republican state, in four years it was done and headed for bankruptcy.

Amnesty then was a bad idea, it is a bad idea now and Flake is fully behind the sham.. we are screwed with sell outs like him in Washington.

Yeah mike I wish I could see some other way but there are only two doors to select from and they both lead to a very bloody banana republic plantation in turmoil.

Jim McAllister said...


Hard to visualize you as ever being a "pathetic little wallflower". Henry messed up not grabbing you while he had the chance.

On the other hand you might be better off without him.

Fate is a funny thing.

Jim McAllister said...


I was never a "Happy Days" fan. Winkler made a ton out of that Fonzie role and a couple of decent films like "Night Shift" (1982) but the last time I saw him he was hawking reverse mortgages.

Jim McAllister said...


What's with the Bodo fixation unless you are fascinated with old guys who can't even hold a job with the state as a turd inspector. LOL

midnightsstaff said...

..DJ: Asian Shares Fall; Nikkei Enters Bear Territory..

.."Japan's Nikkei Stock Average tumbled more than 5.0% in early trading Thursday, falling into bear territory amid signs of slowing global growth".

..sometimes they slip and tell the truth- it was down 800 points before catching itself a few minutes ago- maybe it will repeat of yesterday eh?
Nixon would have frozen wages and prices.. haha- in fact he did!

midnightsstaff said...

what's that theory.. you are only six degrees of separation from meeting anyone else in the world?
I just realized that I was in the room with Dick Nixon's brother in Newport Beach after he was out of office- that's only two if you look at it the way I look at life, therefore I am three away from "Checkers" and Eisenhower as well- not bad for a troglodyte like me, also
you and Barb are four by taking the short cut.!

Jimmy Carter knew..

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I used to listen to Liddy's radio show all the time. He had no use for the Clintons.

He used to tell some funny stories and the best one was when he was in jail and his wife was home with their small children when someone broke into the house. Mrs. Liddy came down the stairs carrying a 357 mag pistol with the children behind her and said watch children while mommy blows the bad guys head off. Needless to say the intruder left as fast as possible.

Pevie Hicks said...

WOW!, that changes everything.

Just imagine how many more high level people will want to take financial advice from a hick in a single wide trailer in the woods, once they know he's no longer paying ANY of his bills or obligations.

Easy to see how this endeavor with your cleaning woman and a broken down barn with a green wall will quickly generate $3M per month!

Why in the world would anyone call you CRAZY?

midnightsstaff said...

I got to hand it to you Rick, you are smart enough not to settle for some dead end menial job and waste your potential competing with those of limited vision at the lower level of employment- that's the spirit!.

With bond rates in the dumper everyone I know is looking for a safe investment with real potential like your start up enterprise just to shelter wealth.
Maybe you should send Jim a prospectus/business plan and we can take a look at it.

You don't even have to do it yourself, have one of the Kep enterprise employees whip something together- I doubt you have the spare time to waste.

Owning your own business, being the CEO might be the only way to go from now on out.

..Funny thing about those illegals that are now about to come out of the shadows, we have been told they will not get any benefits nor will they be subject to Obamacare until the border is secure- no freeloaders need apply!!
(and they really mean it this time!!)

But it also occurred to me that if they weren't subject to Obamacare nor fall under the constraints of legal citizens they obviously still have to work and will be encouraged to do just that, in fact the only ones looking to get in the shadows right now seems to be people like me- sadly as you might have heard in the news, that is no longer an option.

So as soon as the ink dries and the gunfire subsides they will become a prime employee pool target because the employing agency will realize they have little extended overhead pressure to that side of the books thanks to Obamacare, no healthcare is having to be offered- they will just have to use the er for primary care like today, only there will be thirty million more of them at min.
Plus they can hire them for sixty hours a week with no downside- win-win!!

So all of those people who do not normally make six figure incomes such as Cj will now have that reality to face for a very long time.. a depressed jobs market accompanied with stagnant or falling wages for decades with costs of living going dramatically higher.

So I guess it's a win-win for everyone except those greedy hourly employees that have been getting fat living off the land way too long on a 30 hour a week work schedule.

Retirees on fixed incomes get a reprieve- depressed labor for decades and an endless glut of cheap labor available.
So it's going to be just like living in Meh-hicco, but not Rocky Point..

Pax Obama.

midnightsstaff said...

Oh, I forgot.. Now with John McCain starting WWIII we are going to have a lot of Syrian refugees imported as well as the steady flow of various Muslims from Northern Africa we already are getting- those new mes-sicans have some competition! and competition has built this nation right?

..the future looks bright!
from what I saw at the waiting room today and doing a Walmart drive by, maybe Burpkas aren't such a bad idea after all.

Jim McAllister said...


LOL Meh-hicco? But NOT Rocky Point!

midnightsstaff said...

Glad that someone is reading my daily two minutes of rage..
It's about all you have left and they will eventually take this one way or the other.

Live for the moment hey Jimmy- I had a Leffe Blonde-Blonde with tonight's culinary delight- last night it was Stella's.

Combat cooking for one.. the condensed version.
I have been eating tuna sandwiches for three days now.. I put some fresh pineapple and green onion in this batch, and of course with a touch of basil, always wanting to experiment.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained I always say, actually it was pretty good.

In fact I still have enough to top that onion jalapeno bagel with creme cheese in the morning.. nothing says "buenos dias" like a tuna bagel over here on the west side.

..yessirree!! that's what I am gonna do right after my sunrise session of venting on the balcony.

hey...they don't record this stuff do they?

Jim McAllister said...


Rick is the only one I know with a recording company.

I'll leave you on a good note, it looks like the "rouge agents" in Cincy aren't going to take the fall for L. Learner- that champion of the fifth amendment.

I just read your link to lerner and Cincy. Hooray for Ms Hofacre for not allowing herself to bushwhacked by that lying bitch Lerner.

She must be a native of Cincy; we don't don't take that kind of crap from those losers.

Jim McAllister said...


With Atkisson's hemming and hawing statements, it's obvious she knows damn well that she was hacked by the govt. She is just trying cover her ass to avoid disappearing some night when she crosses the CBS parking lot.

midnightsstaff said...

No.. she is just scared to death of living the rest of this decade or dying under mysterious circumstances in a Federal lockup.. no hero's at the IRS that's for sure- and she was probably born in Maryland..

I bet no one will ever see a day in jail over this- it is a distraction over what was he doing while American's were being overrun at Bengazi. Someone out there knows the truth about uncle chester and his diversions.

But the Republidemocrats are in no mood to rock the boat because they might get wet, it's all show and you and I get screwed.

midnightsstaff said...

..guess I led a trail of bread crumbs right to your portfolio Jim.. haha. sorry, but you should have shitcanned this guy years ago for the whackjob he represents.'s just too easy sometimes.

midnightsstaff said...

still in love with Jan Brewer?
what a sell out.

PROUD said...

Rick, if you were able to read you would have noticed my statement didn't give any investment opinion or advise. I do not offer investment advice as I have spent years perfecting my own "buy HIGH...Sell LOW" technique.

I simply expressed my honest doubt that your recording studio will ever amount to anything except what it is now: A tiny hay barn conversion on a five acre piece of Richland Missouri property, which is valued at less than $35K (which includes the land as well as all the buildings single wide, green walled, chicken couped or otherwise).

Never mind that you have frequently mentioned that the title is held by a rock star, bragging about how you are unable to pay your current bills does nothing to promote investor confidence in your ability to manage and pay back their investment.

I'm thinking anyone who worked hard for their money would never, ever consider handing it over to someone as irresponsible and unstable as you. On the bright side, you may not be raking in the green....But you still have the green wall to project future fantasy's on!

Pevie Hicks said...

For Tebow the good news is:

New England signed him to a new contract

Mike Slater said...

Good thing Brewer can't run again. She wouldn't win.

The RINO's that crossed over and voted with the liberals should be tarred and feathered. Hopefully they'll get defeated next year.

I least my Reps in LD21 did the right thing and voted no on Medicaid expansion.

midnightsstaff said...

Now what happened?- everything was hunky dory when I left for a while to get some things cleared up.

..and now look-
.." considering how mean your friends are; why in the world would I ever allow Lana Jefferies or Dell Mack to take one single dime from you?"

.."One Mean Dime".. sounds like a good name for a garage bound punk rock or a hardscrabble rockabilly deluxe bluegrass group.

mind if I forward that idea along to a records group my cousin works for?

I know you keep a keen eye on global economics Rick and strike me as someone with a certain degree of shrewdness, you're obviously way ahead of the curve over the hidden potential for this economy to just bust out soon once the recovery is in full swing.

So I say it's a good idea to get a platform built on the cheap to put the Ozarks back on the map so to speak.. don't let anyone take away that dream.

good move de-listing the property..
I would offer you 35.25K with the chickens- but you would have to promise to move and frankly I don't ever see you doing that.

midnightsstaff said...

You know what I'm doing on the fourth of July?- I am send notice to every rep I have telling them that I am changing my life long voter registration from Republican to the Constitution party in Az.

I am sick of being used like the cheap whore once every two years and watching every one of them bow to the false gods of liberalism.
here is the link to their website..

and this is their platform.

Seven Principles of the Constitution Party are:

1. Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;

2. Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;

3. Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;

4. Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;

5. Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;

6. States' Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people;

7. American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances

..Yeah I know it's simplistic but there isn't one issue I disagree with in principle with this straight forward approach.
what we are doing now doesn't work..
If they ever get a chance probably ninety percent of legal mexicans would agree as well- they are family and work oriented and should oppose the party of death by nature.
actually the more I think about it.. the Republican party is already dead to me.

.."we are trying to win a war against depression and hard times".. .
USAG. Cummings said June 1933.

-how did that work out?

midnightsstaff said...

I only wish that for once in my life I could be on the winning end of that bribery and corruption you talk about -seems like I am always expected to pay the freight.

.."Then when I turn my barn into a music studio to help a friend with cancer, what do you people say to me for trying to work?"... well I hear ya and want to say.. country and western just never goes out of style.
.."Well it was all that I could do to keep from crying.
Sometimes it seems so useless to remain.
But you don't have to call me darlin', darlin'.
You never even called me by my name".
..But the only time I know I'll hear David Allen Coe is when Jesus has his final Judgment Dayyyyyy"

..a classic just like Cj.

.."Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison.
And I went to pick her up in the rain.
But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned old train"...

take it Rick..

midnightsstaff said...

Hey Jim is that environmentally friendly German Shepherd powered rickshaw idea for Old Town Scottsdale designated drivers you were floating ever going to get out of the R&D stage?

Yeah I know.. the Chihuahua track didn't work team has to park some investment money somewhere- it's getting hot and I gotta do something with all these German Shepherds in the back yard- at least the Chichuahuas were easier to clean up after.

"Rickshaw"- like chop sticks.. not to be confused with Rick- so don't get excited.

Knock off early this week, don't burn yourself out with the long hours Rick, it's a marathon not a sprint- gotta pace yourself- learned that in Readers Digest.

midnightsstaff said...

50 million dollars a day.. that's what the bill will be for going into Syria.

Where are all those groups who were protesting the warlike Bush?- and now they don't have a problem with Obama supplying the Al queda forces and putting troops on the ground.
..and that's not even counting the Syrian refugees that are now pouring in.

Alice in Wonderland was a serious documentary compared to this administration.
..frickin' McCain can be the mad hatter.

Jim McAllister said...


midnightsstaff said...

And.... he's gone.

That's quite a bit of disinformation there..
I seriously doubt the Nobel Peace prize winner will be bombing any muzzies back into the stone age any time soon.
..after all he is arming the muslim brotherhood/al queda giving them shoulder fired weapons and a lot of other toys to use on someone else when they are finished doing the Saudis dirty work.
it's all about a pipeline for natural gas to Europe- hello Russia.

..and that dribbling tool John McCain is acting a fool once again.. everyone proud of our representatives here in Arizona?
I'm sure not- it reminds me of the last state I left- Unicornifornia- land of milk and honey.

..but that was a nice drive through the backwoods you gave us.
I know I can sure use a laugh now and then.

Jim McAllister said...


You have put up 15 posts today (6-14). Too many. Organize your thoughts and cut that down to about three. 15 is way too many.


Pevie, mentor to high level peoples and former political strategist , Hicks said...

Obviously, this is more than a numbers game.

Some folks just know how to lump, 15 times the crazy into one insane comment.

midnightsstaff said...

Anyone seen barry lately?
seems to be "unavailable" at the moment.. supposed to be in Ireland on Monday..
something is up.

..He is organizing his thoughts- that's why it's only 15.

Ok, you keep the chickens but 34.6 is my limit- you carry the costs.
let's have a dutch auction- Sunday it will be 34 even, and the chickens- of course she has to go.

Jim McAllister said...


Think about what you are saying:

I'll talk to Lana about Middy's offer to buy my farm, but she's going to say, Hell No!

Middy tried to buy me off the Internet and he paid Nick more money to try to get rid of me.

Try to lowball me again, and I'll see who I can get fired with WMG. It might be putting Shorty's assistant in the unemployment line.

Maybe Middy could buy off a yard boy for a thousand dollars, but it's gonna cost him $1.5 million to buy my silence.

Now I'm willing to forgive ignorant rich people, because your parents were ignorant fools, but be nice.

Syria's going down. Bitch all you want, but it's a done deal.

About the only thing you said that has a thread of sense is about Syria.

Start editing your stuff or I'll do it for you.

Glo said...


Jim McAllister said...


It's going to happen. I've given every benefit of the doubt.

midnightsstaff said...

..was it something I said??

Actually the only thing he got right about Syria was the spelling.

Gloria wake up in a cold sweat with the same recurring dream of looking frantically for a red pen but finding nothing but blue ones- I know the feeling I can't even wake up anymore from the bete noir which is magnified dueling wits with a diabolical black cat.

Which reminds me I did get that school loan approved, I contacted the Nevermore Funeral Academy in Baltimore Md. and skyped the dean about admissions.
He broke it down to me in no uncertain terms that to be placed (I think he meant admitted) in Nevermore you practically need a Congressional sponsor or be part of a bloodline that rivals European royalty stretching past the foundation of Transylvania.

He also made a left handed reference to my age implying that I might be needing their services before graduation.
..nevertheless that was the most positive interview I've had lately so things are getting better in my life.

Rick, I certainly hope you have success and make a lot of money, that's the only way people can learn the truth about who is actually greedy when they find out what a progressive tax structure is all about.

midnightsstaff said...

Well the only reason I want to buy the Enchanted (fill in the blank) was to possibly get as close to being in the shadows as possible and still live in America.

But now with you making such a scene Big Bro is probably parked within earshot at the corner of Peckerwood and Loblolly by now.

Well the chickens was the deal breaker it appears, if you can't understand the subtle dance of price negotiations/bid and counter-bid how are you ever going to deal with flighty, out of control hormone dominated talent agents..

I guess that begs the question of will your clients actually have agents, but I suppose the industry in the Land of Truman is as corrupt as any other today.

I had Tina Turners son Rickey in the lockup who had his own talent agent contingent on an appeals court judgment of course.

He always told me to not listen in on his conversations- inmate agent confidentiality he claimed, said it was in the Constitution.
There is always lots of Constitutional authorities in the can for some reason.

Whoaa.. is this three or more posts for me?- at least I kept them short.

Glo said...

Jim: What 'some' people see as your classism, I see as your CLASS (which is something that 'some' people are truly lacking).

midnightsstaff said...

Reminds me of a famous quote- "what does it matter now?"..

those words gonna be carved in granite some day.

Jim McAllister said...

Sorry, Rick.

You leave me no choice. Also, none of us are "rich". We just sound rich because of our advanced degrees from Haaaahhhhhvaaaaard.

Jim McAllister said...

I'm still laughing! It's kind of like no one in the can is guilty. They've all been framed!

Jim McAllister said...


Thanks for the "class" comment. I'm not sure if it is that as much as enough being enough.

A guy can only take so much. I wish we were all half as rich as Rick thinks we are. Maybe I could trade in my 2005 Hyundai with 100,000 miles and move up to a 2007 or 2008.

Jim McAllister said...

Smart Doc. Screw Obamacare.

midnightsstaff said...

and... he's gone...

Good thing we re elected McCain last election eh?- my God we might have gotten a crackpot or something.

Everyone I asked if they dreamed when they were little kids of going to prison each day for decades told me the same thing.

When you come to the fork in the road.. take it.

No joke about having Ricky in the unit- had him celled up in 117 low- right next to the urinal.. he was a real whiny little bitch who even the inmates couldn't put up with.
We used to give his cell a safety search at chow time after he left- never knew what weird things might turn up.
I found a string of Christmas lights in a cell once.. go figure.

Had a couple of boy/girls in there back then too- what a mess they caused.

midnightsstaff said...

Good link on the return to reason in medicine- that is the only hope we have left.
Jan Brewer has sold us down the river with her enabling so Obama care is going to be here for a minute and if you need to see a doctor this is going to be the only avenue left.

.."well it's one two three what are we fighting for?..
Syrian human rights??

Baroke needs a diversion and he needs it quick.

When it comes to little-ricky...

We are ALL checked in tho~~~The Hotel California~~

Jim, I think you're about to lose people on your blogs if you don't dump Rick real soon.

I love your blogs but if Rick continues with his idiotic comments I may have to leave.

Rick, before you go, please post a list of people who are your friends so we know who to screw with.

As it stands now, NOBODY is willing to place themselves on that list.

Jim McAllister said...


Don't bother to post anymore. Anything you post will be deleted immediately.

You have finally worn out your welcome. I have been way too patient with you for a long time.

midnightsstaff said...

.."Aetna will stop selling health insurance to individual consumers in California at the end of 2013"

..well it appears that Obamacare is not doing exactly what it was promised to do.

maybe that unicorn being able to fly thing is just a myth.

Glo the Joyous!!! said...

GOD BLESS YOU JIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

midnightsstaff said...

That's a small but enthusiastic fan club you have Jim.

Jim McAllister said...

Obamacare will be the biggest mess we have ever seen just because that fool had to feed his ego and push that monstrosity through his Democratic congress.

I want to see those dumb asses when this takes hold. As we speak, experts on the subject are looking and finding loopholes.

Mornin Jim, Happy Father's Day....

We got our first taste of monsoon yesterday, typically we don't see any monsoonal activity until after the fourth of July, so this came about 1 month early. Had thunder, lightening, rain and even pea sized hail. Temp dropped from 77, to 62 in 15 minutes. Didn't last more than 20 minutes then back to sunshine.

Made a mess of the deck, but I'm not complaining, I'm hoping for more, a little early season moisture would be a blessing. Most of our forest fires are caused by dry lightening in June, which is hot, dry and especially windy.

midnightsstaff said...

Bad year for the Midwest wheat crop, they have been getting big dusters from southeast Colorado in the Texas panhandle again.

I remember a three day blow in mid 50's that piled red dirt over the clothesline and buried the chicken coop, same thing with blizzards.
Rough weather in the Midwest.

midnightsstaff said...

Once those coal plants are shut down and people start having rolling brown outs complete with double the energy costs, maybe then they might start to see what Green Energy is really all about.

Yeah.. those smart meters are for my benefit right?

Jim McAllister said...


I love that guy with the "Dear Pravda, Dear Comrade" salutations.

Reading those letters certainly shows how many dumb asses are in this country. No wonder Obama got elected and re-elected.

I wonder if Ike could even have beat him today with all the loser liberal automatons voting.

Jim McAllister said...


Great letter from those guys to Obama. The bad news: it ain't gonna happen.

Even if a-hole Obama agreed, he wouldn't do it just out of spite.

proud said...

And to think...people said she was dumb:

Jim McAllister said...


Thanks for the Father's Day wish. I don't think I am a father, however, one never knows from my USAF days LOL.

A little monsoon action to the north, eh? nothing here to speak of , it's a little early but when it comes I hope we get it good. Never too much water in the valley.

Jim McAllister said...


I honestly don't think Obama has any idea what the hell he is doing. I love Palin's comment, "Let Allah sort it out."

Damn right, clown Obama always has that dumbass deer in the headlights look as if he is Alfred F--king Neuman.

Every time I see that loser, I am more disappointed in this country that he was elected and RE-elected. That 47% of losers carries a lot of weight.

Jim McAllister said...


When I was stationed in Western Missouri, it seemed like every year the fields were either flooded or dusty. I would hate to have an occupation where the weather decides failure or success.

Average farm size in Missouri was 220 acres. My buddy from then was from N. Dakota. He used to call Missouri farms "Gardens."

midnightsstaff said...

Illinois has a bright future, not only has the zero policy on gun ownership worked, now the dynamics of great leadership and targeted taxes illustrates to the nation the way to prosperity.

Pax Obama.

Mike Slater said...

In other good news today the Washington posts reports that the Obama's are taking a little trip to Africa. No doubt to visit their relatives in the jungle. And the best part is it's only going to cost between 60 and 100 million dollars. Silly me, I thought the country was broke.

Jim McAllister said...


I wonder what Rahm's solution is. He should have stayed on the Washington gravy train.

Jim McAllister said...

No doubt to visit their relatives in the jungle.

Sorry, Mike.

You will have to go through political correctness school for using that statement.

Everyone knows that no self respecting jungle would grant entry to either one of those losers. They'll have to settle for Martha's Vineyard.

Mike Slater said...

Sorry Jim, I don't do the PC BS. I'm about as un PC as one can be. I have a Confederate flag that I fly ever January on the birthday of Robert E. Lee. One of the greatest Generals in American history.

Back when I worked for the phone company they came up with the brilliant idea to have everyone attend "Diversity" class to better understand minorities.

Needless to say their plans didn't quite work out. People would get up and leave and others would turn their chairs to the wall and ignore the whole thing.

After 3 or 4 of the classes the company dropped the idea because they realized they no one gave a rat's ass.

midnightsstaff said...

Looks like Jan Brewer is planning on taking the ice floe south into the next election.
She pretty much told the rational people in Arizona to shove it.

As reported in the Arizona Republic where she has gotten their support for once it seems all she had to do was french kiss Barak's ass Christie style by taking the poison pill of federal money to expand medicare- saving Obamacare in the process.

Good work Jan- and you did it before happy hour.
Every time I try to give one of these political whores a break they show me how worthless they really are.

..this state goes blue in two election cycles Jim- we already have two turncoat Senators and Rino's run the house reps.

midnightsstaff said...

here, watch the two leadAzRepfools Ledger and Macsomething cheering Jan on for her valiant efforts in destroying this state..

..well at least Debbie Slater in the comments section wasn't fooled..
of course I wouldn't expect her to be.

Mike Slater said...

Middy, thanks for the kind words. Deb and I use her face book to comment on az central.

It's funny how the liberals vilified Brewer for signing SB1070 but now with the Medicaid expansion she's the greatest thing since sliced bread to the liberal free shit army.

I think I've finally convinced Deb to leave the Republican Party. I did about 10 years ago. Too many RINO's like McCain,Flake and Graham in the party.

The Republican Party is finished.

midnightsstaff said...

Long live the Whigs...

it's total crash and burn, the tea party has to fight both the Socialist/Fascist/Statist/Democrat party and they have to fight the Establishment permanent underclass party, the traitorous McCain led Washington Generals at the same time.

The S/F party has unlimited resources through misusing the tax money to defeat them so I don't see much chance for improvement in my lifeime- stupid people have to suffer great pain to learn even the most obvious truth.

midnightsstaff said...

Barry's telling whoppers again, .."Well, in the end, and what I’ve said, and I continue to believe, is that we don’t have to sacrifice our freedom in order to achieve security. That’s a false choice. That doesn’t mean that there are not tradeoffs involved in any given program, in any given action that we take. So all of us make a decision that we go through a whole bunch of security at airports, which when we were growing up that wasn’t the case."

..sad thing is he is not insulting the average Joe sixpack/foodstamps intelligence with this childish level of drivel-
Joe Dipshit and his baby's momma won't believe it until the cell door slams shut.

Jim McAllister said...


I'm with you on the PC BS. I don't worry about being "hurtful" or listening to some idiot crybaby liberal hollering "You can't say that!"

All libs should have to watch that 2 1/2 minute portion of "Blazing Saddles" when Cleavon Little comes riding into town. That was made in 1974 and was hilarious. Many black people agree but in this screwed up world we now have where everyone is afraid to talk freely, it wouldn't go over. I'm surprised YouTube hasn't deleted it.

Jim McAllister said...

Bravo to Debbie Slater for the comment on the Republic clip with Leger and MacEachern

Jim McAllister said...


Millard Fillmore for President!!!

Hillary is next in the White House and Obama has interviewed to be her chauffer.

I had doubts until yesterday I saw when Chelsea has endorsed her. She said "we need a woman in the White House!" I wonder what Michelle thinks of that.

Jim McAllister said...

Barry has always been full of shit and always will be. He is an embarrassment to this country in particular and the human race in general.

Ah, the good old days of '68.
