                              Has anyone seen this?  I copied it from Walt Armour's site on 
                                Google+. "Who's body did Vogue use to stick that head?"

I have been writing this blog since 2005.  Google tells me that it has had 134,993 visits derived from 673 posts. That breaks down to about 200 per blog which seems a bit high but who am I to dispute Google? Regardless, thanks to everyone who has been reading my rants for past 9 years.

Those numbers don't include the 5 years of AZ Central blogs from 2006 to 2011.  That was a good deal until nastiness took over and the Republic switched over to Facebook to screen comments.  Big mistake! Who wants to have their comments screened and purified?  The whole point of comments is for everyone to let it all hang out.  Needless to say, the Facebook experiment was a failure.

John Callow, also known as PROUD is now doing a new blog.  John is a good guy so read what he has to say on his WordPress blog.  Hey, John:  Post your URL here so someone can read your stuff!

I have been writing some articles for the last couple months for  Images AZ  magazine.  They put out what I call "shiny magazines" and are available in various northern parts of the Valley like Scottsdale, Carefree, Cave Creek, Anthem, Grayhawk, Tramonto, etc.  To see them online google "Images AZ" magazine then click the edition you want.  I have had some stories in the Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree editions during February and March with more scheduled for April.

My favorite quote of the day:  "I think Putin is playing chess, and I think we're playing marbles. And I don't think it's even close." House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Michigan.  

But, Mike, Didn't BO tell Medvedev that he can be more flexible after he was re-elected?  By the way, What's the latest about Snowden?

Courtesy of Mr. Alan R. check out this 6:29 video of Judge Jeanine. You always know where the judge stands.

RE: Putin....Personally....I believe he has the right to protect his military base in Crimea as well as his fellow citizens who reside there...wonder how our leaders would respond if the situation were reversed??

Mike said...

Judge Jeanine doesn't pull any punches when it comes to Obama. It's fun to watch her.

PROUD said...

Wow, President Obama could not have been more wrong or naive.

(The 2012's are calling,....they want the election back):

Thanks for the plug Jim, I started the wordpress blog in 2010, about the time AZ Central shut down and it just laid there for f-o-u-r long years. Maybe it was because I just had a colonoscopy?, or maybe I'm just up to here with people (see naive idiots)still defending the bumbling inept community organizer that's pretending to be our President, but I just felt the need to sound off or start eating Tagamet.
Don't particularly like the wordpress format, but it was already in place so I thought I'd give it a shot. Not trying to compete, but everyone here is welcome to drop by and sound off, I only have a couple of recent topics but the way the Ukraine is going, the impending stock market crash, and the mid term elections, I'm sure there will be lots to rant's my place, I'll leave a light on:

midnightsstaff said...

Yeah Proud, here is another video I posted on the same subject..

..didn't get much/any discussion so I figured no one really gave a damn- watch close and notice Wolf Blitzer was trying to set Mitt up in a gotcha at the end over PG13 movies, (he implied Mitt was taking adolescents to a restricted movie.)

All Millenials should take note of those who helped these criminals fool you out of a normal life when it comes time to boil some rope. was right after the widely misunderstood and ignored Stardate entry.
(won't ever try that again)

Jim McAllister said...


I would hate to have Jeanine mad at me. She seems very sincere when she is pissed.

Jim McAllister said...


If it was anyone else, I may feel sorry for them but in Obama's case with that basketball sized ego accompanying his pea sized brain and logic, I love seeing him bashed.

I'm glad Benghazi is hanging around still. I think that could be his Watergate. No wonder Michelle stayed an extra few weeks in Hawaii at Christmas. She is probably sick of the guy too.

Jim McAllister said...


I'm glad to see you renew your blog. I always enjoyed the one you did on AZ Central and thought you should have been in the front row of bloggers.

For those who don't know of John's blog, find it at:

Jim McAllister said...


Blitzer has always been a fool like the rest of CNN.

Jim McAllister said...

I can forgive Alfred Nobel for having invented dynamite, but only a fiend in human form could have invented the Nobel Prize.
.........George Bernard Shaw

It took G. B Shaw to finally explain correctly what the Nobel Prize is about. How else could Obama have received one? He couldn't even sell someone the idea of putting the Olympics in Chicago.

Rick Kepple said...

Nice blog, Jimmy.

Well, it should be interesting to see if Putin can rebuild the Soviet Union.

PROUD said...

It's way too easy to get on Mommy Jeans Obama for being gullible and naive about Putin...

For perspective, I forced myself to remember that George Bush once said:

"I looked the man,(Putin) in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy"

And when Putin later invaded Georgia, Bush made his fair share of Obama-esk impotent condemnations, with a certain, egg on face smile....

Hopefully, this unmasking of our nations irrational desire to go along to get along fantasy will be a teachable moment? Or not!

Many (Huffington Post etal) are now standing and cheering Obama's ineptitude and naivety as a sign of super intellect at work in skillfully avoiding getting us into yet another conflict. Personally, I understand the nations war weariness, but I think it's more like: just another day in the life of an inexperienced, Chicago, community organizer, doing his best impersonation of a President, and wishing it was three years from now!

Rick Kepple said...

What John said. Yeah. I concur.

midnightsstaff said...

"I looked the man,(Putin) in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy"..

Well compared to BathhouseBarry Vlad seems like Jimmy Stewart, by the way no one should forget that Vlad actually had a day job for most of his life, he was running the East German KGB and retired as a Colonel..
He has Obama by the empty sack- they probably have his dead egg donor mom in a pickle barrel down in the basement- whoever she is.
I can guarantee Obama knows after a couple of meetings behind closed doors that the KGB has as good or better raw files on his past than the FBI does. he plays bridge with Eric Snowden.

Obama is a punkass bully, Putin is the real deal- not giving anything to another dictator but at least he's not some bath house clown used to people doing his dirty work for him, Vlad does his own.
Barry had to wear a diaper to that meeting.

I'm just glad my dad didn't have to watch the office of the presidency turn into a combination al queda command post and a union hall.

midnightsstaff said...

Oh by the way John, I have thought about it and decided to meet the ladies half way, they can vote if they are married and not on welfare.
(and they take their husband's last name)

how's that going to fly?

PROUD said...

Well, it seems there's this new custom of taking the husbands name but keeping the maiden...
Something about hyphen?ating?

OK I'll go along with the voting so long as there are no associated demands that I possess the clairvoyance necessary to determine the sex of the next toilet user. (the old, leave the seat up or down thingy)

PROUD said...

Can somebody please tell me WHY in the hell Moochelle is going to China (at a cost of $10 million taxpayer dollars) to promote "education"
At the very time China stuck the big one to Barack when he pleaded for world support in condemning Russia's aggression?
Aren't there places here in the USA where $10 million could help education? (Chicago? Detroit?)Hasn't she taken enough vacations?

Rick Kepple said...

Jen just baked a batch of peanut butter cookies. Farm living will make one fat.

Well, what's all this Putin stuff mean to me? I'm figuring that Obama will pledge part of our crop to Russia this year. Add to that, the certainty of higher grocery prices.

We need a guy with Putin's guts to run the country.

midnightsstaff said...

I might go make myself a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip/walnut cookies I make. I can do one thing right and it's bake a decent cookie.

Guess if it's worth saying once, it's worth repeating eh Proud?
You should be happy she is out of the country for a while, girl's been working herself way too hard if you ask me.
School lunch program worked better than I expected.
Hey McDonald's is now considered health food in Buckeye.

.."We need a guy with Putin's guts to run the country"..
..sometimes you are prophetic Rick, the way things are going he might be running things here in a couple of weeks-remember this guy with the girl's bike is an amateur- he has no practical experience outside of bilking rich guys and lying to the crowd to fund his fantasy.

I hate to say it but he couldn't do your job Rick. Lord... I believe that's my best riff ever.

midnightsstaff said...

Helter Skelter night on the Japanese market.. looks like a lifelong smoker's vitals.

midnightsstaff said...

here's an article for mike.

“Every president has spent more total real dollars in his last budget than in his first,” she said, noting that Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson increased spending by 38 percent, but George W. Bush, twice elected on a conservative Republican platform, increased spending by 53 percent during his presidency.

“Even Reagan increased total spending by 22 percent” over President Carter, she says on her website"..

It's true guys, the Republicans need to do a 180 and soon.

PROUD said...

Middy, it''s just that I have a stu...stutt...stutte, (I repeat myself)

Republicans talk a good one, but seem more willing to abandon core principals if it means getting more people to vote for them. Especially evident after they loose an election, they quickly try to morph themselves somewhat to make Dems like their message (compassionate-conservative)
Democrats on the other hand, seem to stay true to their core beliefs, it's just that their beliefs are running the nation down the drain....

PROUD said...

Obama, who only knows how to campaign, is using the Affordable Health Care Act as his primary campaign tool.

He just made another executive change to stall cancellations until after the midterm elections solely tho help Democrats hold on to their seats...

Wow, didn't see that coming? ;-)

midnightsstaff said...

Sauntering up to talk with unmarked Russian "advisors" is not a great way to start the day.
..there is none of that line in the sand nonsense when the Bear growls.

I don't understand the language but I think they were saying.."mind if we play through?"-"Nyet!"..
(the guy with the ak looks like a reasonable fellow- probably a Russian national guard called up eh?)

PROUD said...

Well, looks like Putin may have finally screwed up....

Based on Middy'sw video clip, I believe we can charge the Russian army with multiple violations of "Shannon's Law" per A.R.S. §13-3107

Someone get Sheriff Joe to the Crimea stat!

Rick Kepple said...

I found feral hog tracks on my land. The dew claws of a hog are twice the width of the hoof track, but with deer, they're around the same width as the hoof. Free meat. I am obligated by law to hunt, shoot and eat them.

Nice riff, Middy.

midnightsstaff said...

Free meat?- what are they going to do walk in your front door and commit hari kari? such thing as a free lunch Rick, somewhere in the process you are going to have to actually engage in the process.

How many more easily recognized character defects in Obama will it take to convince his spear carriers that he is leading them to a certain doom?
First president of color.
First president who openly defies the rule of law.
First homosexual president.
First president to declare war on America.
First mentally ill president.
First president to open up the White House to Muslim terrorists within his cabinet.

He is not through, the mentally deranged have to be stopped not reasoned with.

midnightsstaff said...

As much as it lends itself to another one of my soapbox moments on the relationship between a man's labor and property which represents that labor, the "free lunch" topic has been gone over again and again to the same result.
Some people just don't get it.

Shooting pigs is the fun part; what follows is why the squaws usually got to follow along for the hunt, after all that hide doesn't just unzip itself- just ask mike. apologies to any squaws out there that might be offended by the truth.

haha.. just getting my game face on for another trip to the hair cutter- it's like walking into a combination estrogen pit/twilight zone.

Rick Kepple said...

Oh Middy, you do like splitting hairs don't you? An estrogen pit?

Yes Middy. I have cleaned large animals before. Hogs are the nastiest creatures God ever made, but they sure are tasty!

Mike said...

Middy, yea those pigs aren't very cooperative, they won't even stand still when I miss the first shot. How rude.

Obama has to be the most embarrassing president since that clueless Jimmy Carter. America's enemies must look at him and think what an idiot.

Teddy Roosevelt said speck softly and carry a big stick. With Reagan it was trust but verify. With Obama it's I'll draw a line in the sand and if you cross it I won't do anything.

Putin is playing chess wile Obama is playing marbles.

SteveBuzzardo said...

"Free meat?- what are they going to do walk in your front door and commit hari kari?"

LOL, funny!

midnightsstaff said...

..probably mexican pigs with happy feet or something- pretty close to baja de la Arizon~ah here- they might be migrating back and forth doing pigwork that American pigs just won't do.

Hey Jim you and Cavehaugh golf together; see if he will jot something together on that idea I tossed out there on women voting only if married and get it on Jan's desk, we can work out the details over breakfast.

Hell if he gets wind of the idea not only will he give it consideration, he probably will claim he thought of it himself.
haha.. can't wait for a debate between these two blowhards- it ought to go viral.

midnightsstaff said...

Is this photo shopped? what??- do you mean the Monica Lewenski dress?
na.. that's just a coincidence I'm sure.

well trading day for the Coyotes, game tonight they will try to put a happy face on it I guess, I see a blown season but at least a couple of distractions are removed.

Rick Kepple said...

Well, the fact is they are illegal pigs, so they are doing the work that domestic American swine won't, or can't do.

Rick Kepple said...

Jen told me that Obamacare is going to start taking people's tax returns to pay for their annual health care coverage. Yeah buddy. That's how to start a civil war.

I hate hospitals. Guess I might do outpatient stuff, but no overnight. I read that you can be arrested for calling the nurse from your room now!

A friend, 30 years old and with heart problems now, said that Obamacare contracts allow access to finances, property, anything.

That's leading up to full blown communism! No wonder I'm getting sicker.

midnightsstaff said...

Who's filling your head with this unpatriotic crap Rick?
No, ObamaCare is just having the normal start up problems all great ideas have because people just resist change even when it's good for them.

What promise has not been delivered Rick?- is it the 2,500.00 per household savings we are seeing with the new plans?
Or that "if you like your doctor" thing that people are blowing out of proportion?

No Communism is what Joe the Plumber was talking about that got him audited, he clearly misunderstood what "fundamental change" and "redistribution of national resources" actually mean in a modern society.

Just because the doctors now have to learn 155,000 new codes or suffer the consequences by the IRS doesn't mean healthcare will suffer or costs increase; a bunch of rich guys shouldn't be able to resist the new centrally planned approach which when once implemented allows the government information that can be used by the IRS in scheduling your health care needs.

Have you ever dealt with the IRS Rick?, you say "No"?
..guess what- that's about to change.

After all with the American middle class no longer burdened with the indignity of a forty hour workweek and a reduced level of disposable income, we will finally be free to pursue our dreams.. and that means great opportunity for someone like you Rick.

Yep.. the barn door on this one was stolen in the middle of the night with over 70 percent to be affected not wanting it. now do we- rebuild the barn?- or try to find the horses?- that's the question most people are asking, but as we are about to find out the answer is..

Another helping of peas Rick?
Remember when a great leader once said.. "you didn't build that" he was including your property rights Rick; what you didn't realize at the time was he considers you and everyone else as merely a renter, not an owner.

The concept of private ownership and a middle class offering opportunity for advancement is as irrelevant today in this political climate as cursive writing is in a court of law.

Rick Kepple said...

My roommate is 40-years-old, a single white female, no kids, no unemployment benefits, no disability, but she gets what she can. Jen enjoys operating log skidders and other heavy equipment for a living.

Jen doesn't qualify for subsidies. No kids. You might call it her disability. She doesn't qualify for Medicaid. Too young.

You're lucky, Middy. You bitch about the taxes that you think people are robbing from you.

Well, I gotta take Jen to go help her friend, recently diagnosed with heart problems at 30-years-old, and he's "unemployable." They're doing some home improvements with what little money they can scrape up.

You think you know, Middy, but you don't. If you watched our films, you'd get it. To you, the entire world is wrong and the ironic thing is that the entire world acts just like Middy!

Jim McAllister said...

Wow! I'm sorry I was out yesterday. You guys had a great conversation on many subjects: some of it reinforcement on what most of us have talked about with loser Nobama and then some new stuff like Mike mentioning that those damn javelina won't stand still after a missed shot at them.

Lest I forget, it was nice to hear of Rick's feral hog tracks and that he is (hopefully) getting "some" from a new 40 year old member of babedom.

Great banter for sure and thanks Middy and PROUD for your contributions.

How about that budget proposal from the impostor. I had a hard time staying awake while reading his usual yearly nonsense about fleecing the makers so the poor and worthless takers can live better lives.

Then, there was the yearly cry for the roads and bridges and speedy trains and free pre-school while that pesky military has to be cut back (yawn).

Perhaps the best thing was the picture of him with a bunch of little black kids. Now, there is a guy who really cares! (Excuse me, I just wiped a tear!). He had a look on his face that said, "Hurry up and click the goddamed pict5ure so I can get away from these little bastards!"

Of course it will go nowhere. I especially liked Paul Ryan's comment: "This budget isn't a serious document; it's a campaign brochure."

This clown has turned a great country into a laughing stock.

midnightsstaff said...

haha... no Rick, the world does not run their lives like I do; I have no debt except the mortgage and it's not a problem yet.

You on the other hand have a whole life that is controlled by old debt forcing you to begging someone to front you money so you can get into even more future debt by having someone invest in one of your fly by night/sure to fail schemes.

..just like Obama does.

..actually looking at the last couple of elections it appear more people enjoy making stupid decisions like you do rather than I.
It's the reason I along with many others get targeted by the government for constant harassment instead of you until he doesn't need your vote any longer.
hey I'm not the one who got up today all wet and cranky over a bleak future.

Guys like you represent a cost for remaining elected, people paying taxes represent a means of funding that cost to continue the swindle- it's all very simple.

BTW- (there is no such thing as too young for Medicaid) Medicare yes but not Medicaid- BTW- once you sign up for medicaid it means you no longer own your property while you are still alive, just consider the implications of that in an imploding economy.

PROUD said...

Obama and Reid furious after 7 Dem Senators join Repubs to block the DOJ (cop killer advocate)nominee.

The Dems knew it was going to be close, so they brought 'Ol Joe in for the tie breaker, but someone on their Dem side (maybe two)pulled a fast one and switched their vote after pip squeak Reid did his head count.

Bet that Senator is going to be feeling more heat from fellow Senate Dems than he would at the election for a yes vote?....

Interesting times, these

midnightsstaff said...

I bet McCain is absolutely furious over that vote going against his best wishes.
He is a poster child for al queda's interests in this administration, if it is the wrong decision it is his position..
Congratulations Arizona Repugnant party for giving us another six years of treason in motion.

yeah.. it appears the Republican's theatrical crew led by Issa featured in the year old IRS dog and pony show is still kissing Lerner's statist ass.
..some things cannot change, Issa is evidently just as dirty as the rest.

Rick Kepple said...

Taking a day or so to rest. Got to get the garden prepared to be plowed soon.

A couple of friends want to garden, but they're gonna help me tend it, so they can have some of mine. Bought Jen a bunch of fishing gear. She's sweet and she helps everyone, so she deserves it.

You're right Middy. I should stop paying all those lenders. File bankruptcy. Then I'll have lots of money left from my entitlements!

Rick Kepple said...

I guess maybe you guys compare the poor in Phoenix to the poor in the Ozarks. You guys did say that some places have feral chickens. That's pretty cool.

Put an egg in a bowl of water about six inches deep and if it lays there, it's good. If it tries to stand up or stands up, throw it away.

A lot of folks prefer public housing and that in my opinion is just a humane kind of genocide.

A lot of folks hunt, fish and even still trap in the Ozarks.

So how's my health, Middy? How long do I have? C'mon, you think you know me.

midnightsstaff said...

.."Put an egg in a bowl of water about six inches deep and if it lays there, it's good. If it tries to stand up or stands up, throw it away"..

Yep, I've used that trick since I was a kid, any floater means there is gas buildup which is not good with ham.
..another trick to tell boiled from non boiled eggs is to try to spin em.

From looking at your cyber lifeline I can tell you have one less day to live than yesterday Rick- keep in mind lots of things can change the matrix tho.. cancer, heart attack.. eating last years Easter egg you found by accident.. fooling around with someone else's wife.

lots of things- pick one and see.

Rick Kepple said...

Well congratulations for being out of debt, Middy. I was out of debt once, but then I went on morphine and borrowed lots of money. And you're right.

Jen said that I have to eat healthier. So I bought her some fishing gear. Fish is good for me.

Middy mentioned squaws and I asked Jen if she was one and she ignored me. That means the question is stupid and she's not answering it. With women; it's not what they say, but what they don't say in language.

I'm gonna buy her a good deer rifle too and if Jen doesn't like it, I can always go hunting with it. And I'm teaching her ultralight backpacking so she can go drag the deer out so I can have a healthy meal.

Thanks Middy. The above mentioned deaths are all in my family.

Dell Mack tells a story, "I had a good wife once until her husband came and got her."

Hey, tell me what's going on with Obama, Middy. I like your version better. Not feeling so hot, so ain't gonna be arguing.

Jim McAllister said...


I was happy to see that rejection of Obama's nominee for the DOJ.

Obama is fuming and Reid looks even more sickly than usual if that is possible. Congrats to those 7 Dems that voted against the guy.

Jim McAllister said...

Now I see where Sebelius was in town yesterday; the third Washington jerk, including Joe Biden, to stop by in the last couple of weeks to try to influence (force) more people to join O-Care.

What dreamers they are; people hate the damn thing and no matter how many addenda they keep adding to influence people, it won't work.

Now the rats in local districts for the House are pulling out all stops to get elected or re-elected.

Krysten Sinema, who is white and bi-sexual and is the female rep from District 9 wants a shot at replacing retiring Ed Pastor in heavily Hispanic District 7 since it is a stronger Dem seat.

Meanwhile Steve Gallardo wants the same seat and has even pronounced himself as gay in the process. I don't know what that has to do with it but there you go.

Gallardo is Hispanic and the big boys in that district have told Sinema to f--k off.

Hey, I thought the Dems were so open minded! LOL What a bunch of phonies but they are fun to laugh at.

Jim McAllister said...

Latest Fox news poll:

Obama approval down from 40 to 38. I know it's a Fox poll but it has to be close to right.

Maybe all those phony appearances by him with kids and at factories with the wallpapered automatons in the background aren't working so well.

PROUD said...

Yeah Jim, it's been a bad couple months for Obama. Sitting atop his my lil pony foreign policy,in his mommy jeans, helplessly watching Putin ride into the Ukraine on a grizzly.
Poll numbers at all time low, the Senate rebuke of his nominee, a big correction in the stock market right about now would really seal the deal.

Turns out as the world was distracted by the olympic spectacle, Putin was putting his Crimean invasion ducks in a row. Our knee jerk admin. send lurch (Kerry) out to bloviate about how terrible it is and before he can begin to wag his square jaw, the Crimean s hold a sudden and unanimous vote to join Russia...(((BLAM)))...Making our bungler in chief look all the more bungling.

Only problem is, the American people will be easily distracted by the next (minimum wage) shinny object Obama dangles in front of their ignorant eyes...

midnightsstaff said...

.."they marveled at the fireworks display as their means to get home was being repossessed in the parking lot"..

I'm pretty sure it will take a complete collapse before they wise up to the game being played in these Democrat party infestation sites.
At the moment it takes a lot to get the attention off gay and lesbian issues in sage bloom purple Arizona.

..It appears a queef-high douche beats a busted pair bisexual in the Democrat section of the Arizona peanut gallery (ouch).
..the war on sort of wimmin continues!!- someone ought to alert TheRedMenacE.
(probably holding a sign in front of Arpaio's office this morning)

Perhaps a collapsed economy and destroyed cities will do it- maybe not.. after all Bud is still on sale at Walmart and the Superbowl is still on where the Cardinals pretend to play for next year.

You can thank Jan for that when she gets up today.

Rick Kepple said...

Why is Putin expanding Russia's power and Obama is reducing the size of the U.S. military? Why is the U.S. military just being changed over to a police force?

Prayer rugs can be purchased on for less than five bucks. Learn Russian and Chinese for virtually nothing! Don't wait!

I'm finding that the peace of a campfire is pretty cool. Filming wildlife is something that I've always wanted to do. Then shoot them and eat them.

midnightsstaff said...

anyone find this of any relevance?

Well Rick, can you remember in 2008 when Obama said we will need a domestic armed force at the command of politicians such as himself equal to or greater than the size of the military?
..well there is two ways to do that- or just combine them.

Engage in endless wars with no plan to win.
Pick fights we have no vested interest in nor ability to wage.
Spend defense money on domestic make work jobs and corrupt vote buying schemes- basically apply the same Cloward Piven destruction tactics to the military as he has to the economy.

Just gut the military while growing the domestic army of Bureaucratic police beholden to him after doing all of the above.

you are(((X)))here. your peas Rick, you will learn to like them- and you know what the next step probably will be.

Jim McAllister said...


Blowbama is out pushing hard again for the $10.10 minimum wage. He seems to have no fear of the layoffs something like that would incur.

What a naive SOB.

midnightsstaff said...

Looks like the Daily Kos is starting to wake up.

..and now this..

.."Staples Inc, the largest U.S. office supplies retailer, forecast another quarter of sales decline as it loses customers to mass market chains and e-retailers, and the company said it would close up to 225 stores in North America by 2015"..

..shocked... shocked I tell you!..
Ha- read the comments section,it sounds like pill line conversation at the insane asylum..

..This "unexpected news" must be the result of another Tea Party led assault on wimmin or maybe further proof of the inequality of resources in America or some other equally convoluted reason.

(obviously we should raise taxes some more)

midnightsstaff said...

For all you folks that missed the parabolic action on Dollar Store stock (FDO) a while back, I understand the hot money is now on Thrift Store (BHO) announcing their scheduled IPO next month- I see a trend.

..don't be late on this one.

Mike said...

I think Sinema should run for District 7. Think of the possibilities. She could win and piss off all the Hispanics or she could lose and we would be rid of her. Plus it would free up District 9 for the Republican to win. It's a win, win situation.

The worst thing that could happen is for Mary Rose Wilcox to win the seat. It's a shame that the guy that shot her in the ass didn't have a better aim.

midnightsstaff said...

I guess I missed that, sounds like he was trying a head shot- never try a head shot on a politician, it's usually buried up their ass.

The war on wimmin takes a strange twist today when a feminist group bared their girls in a chilly Times Square to great approval by most men and some of the ladies in protest of a Russian leader for his actions in Ukraine..

.."Five members of Femen bore their breasts Thursday in New York's Times Square, denouncing occupation of Crimea by Russia and asking for tougher response against its President Vladimir Putin"..

.."The feminist group's protesters, whose chests were painted blue and yellow -- the color of Ukraine's flag -- hoisted a placard against Putin and another calling for US-EU action"..

..early reports are that Putin took a nap.

Rick Kepple said...

" your peas Rick, you will learn to like them- and you know what the next step probably will be."

Okay, but then can I have some cheesecake and ice cream?

Sun Tzu said that no nation has ever survived that fought a prolonged, distant war on more than one front. It will economically break them.

Russia? Not good. They have these new weapons that allegedly can beat our weapons. And we can't afford a war and Putin knows it.

Mike said...

Rick, Russia has never had weapons better than ours. The Israeli's proved that in their wars against the Arabs and we proved it in both Iraq wars.

PROUD said...

Sorry to link, but this is right on topic
(except the title probably should have been: Visualize whirled Pea's)

midnightsstaff said...

North Vietnam didn't have an air force, heavy artillery, tanks, battleships, air support, floating hospitals, they only had the crudest of supply lines using improvised and captured weapons in the II and III corp and we killed a lot of them.
I don't remember us marching through the streets of Hanoi after ten long years of bitter fighting taking our POW's back and popping champagne corks- so what did we learn?

Wars are won and lost not on the battlefield but at the negotiations table.
..or in our case at the ballot box.

Like I said, nothing more dangerous than a cornered queef.
(that picture is disgusting John)

So why the rush to another war in Europe?- is it because our economy is starting to crack and they know it?.
After all nothing fluffs the pillows like a good contained war.

It's a bad idea to get into it with someone on the other side of the world who constantly remarks how little they care about the casualty rate of their own citizens and have a rich history to back it up unless you absolutely have to.

How many American lives lost in Ukraine are too many?- hey the subject is going to come up- probably in the first week of combat operations..

Hey Mike. This story is from 1980 concerning USSR and Poland, their economic crisis, labor problems and the Kremlin's control. So Putin is predictable. You could also view the Soviet Union as Washington today.

I researched it and Mike is right. The United States has better weapons than Russia, but Russia still has 1500 more nukes than we do.

I'm personally hoping that the next war will be psychological, economic, cyber and just taking property of the other nation with lawyers. Everyone hates lawyers.

midnightsstaff said...

.."Everyone hates lawyers"..
..put them and the politicians on the front lines along with the bankers and things will change pronto.

The reason you build and maintain a first class military is so no one would be stupid enough to force an issue.
We are headed for some war with this maniac in chief getting more desperate day by day.
and that's a problem Rick, he has intentionally depleted the military to a level Carter left us with.
All for what? the mideast is now nearly in radical islam hands- Africa is headed the same and John McCain is high fiving Al queda fighters for photo ops as the traitor he is.

Eisenhower and JFK had it right but then so did Pogo.

Liberals have their panties in a wad over Issa adjourning the hearing w/o allowing Cummings to make a speech. Predictably, charges of racism are everywhere. No racism, just power procedure depending on who has the gavel. Example from 2008 when Democrats had the chair:

midnightsstaff said...

At least they are consistent with their statist method.
Nostrilitus should be the first one dragged to the gallows if we ever get serious about reclaiming our birthright.
Cummings should be next.

Interestingly he has tossed in the towel and announced his retirement.
I guess it's no fun being in the House if you don't get to swing the gavel and openly obstruct justice bullying the nation from the halls of Congress.
In the future any image, cartoon, listening to the voice of or any reference to the flamingturd in the White House either on his knees or standing is considered disgusting and will set me off complaining.
I think I have developed an allergy to the guy- his voice makes me nauseous.
(it wasn't the twerking, it was the twerk in the picture I object to).
..that was a very disturbing image- I lost sleep, and you can't get that back until naptime.

Rick Kepple said...

It's a dangerous time to make defense cuts. It's arrogance to believe that the country can't be attacked again. It's happened twice!

"The 2015 spending plan calls for the Army to shrink to between 440,000 and 450,000 soldiers, the smallest number of troops since before the Second World War."

Yes this like every other time in history is a bad time to have allowed the president, a proved enemy of the nation to deplete our defense.

But it's representative of hope and change, as Stalin noted,"you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs".

With enough low/no information voters demanding free stuff and no opposing party to counter those childish urges we've proved that a banana republic constantly teetering on the brink of implosion can be created in one election.

The American people face a coalition of Russian, Chinese, radical islam and a traitorous domestic government at their neck today- and the Russians are planning to build military installations all over South America and Cuba. how are you going to deal with Sharia law in Missouri Rick? do you think they will leave you alone just because you leave them alone?
Ask the Christians in North Korea, all over Africa and Syria about coexisting with pure evil.
The dictator of NK regularly hangs children in front of their parents and then has them rolled over with a paving roller unless they deny their faith.
Good thing you were smart enough not to get fooled by Mitt Romney eh Rick- after all he was an actual Christian.
..this would be a good weekend for you to think about it.

Rick Kepple said...

Middy, how often have I written about the threat of Sharia Law? But that's okay. I'm old too and I completely understand the memory thing.

Don't you remember when the Pulaski County Missouri sheriff arrested two Arab soldiers? One a Muslim and one a Christian? They were arrested for trying to pick up a 12-year-old girl. There was concerns about Sharia Law, but few others thought of that.

What do you want me to do, Middy? I don't have your money. I have to short lenders to prepare for the equipment that I need to survive the nightmare that is coming in the years to come.

Yep.. you're pretty much on your own- what you have to do is somehow make your survival beneficial to the masters who will control your life.

Usually those getting fed for no production are called pets Rick, dried up former producers are not normally kept for pets- read your history.

I sense you are cheeking your peas like inmates at the pill line, might as well just get it over with- after all that pile of peas isn't getting any smaller.

You probably meant "saki" instead of "sak" when you originally meant "ask"
I understand.

Rick Kepple said...

The chicken metaphor. Yeah, I get it. And I have real chickens, some pets running loose to take their chances and eat the fleas, as well as penned chickens for my eggs. I also bought a few more replacement pullets as I do every year.

Since we have bridges to replace, some corporation could pay to build the bridges and charge a tax on the cell phones of those that cross it.

Is it me or is there is a bit of irony here? Both those ladies are intelligent and beautiful and are Republicans.

Conversely, Marcia Fudge? Heavy, homely, and with an unfortunate last name for a black woman. (Fudge?)

I see jealousy written all over her accompanying the usual outlandish, idiotic Dem ideas she supports.

She, Jesse, Al and all the rest of those phony black leaders all have the same "chip on the shoulder" ignorant outlook yet they have their followers.

Somewhere Barnum is laughing his ass off at these clowns!

As far as Rutgers, I would never be surprised at what a liberal east coast "school" does. Just another bunch of east coast knee jerk losers.

Rick Kepple said...

I got pulled over for a license plate light late last night. Jen wanted a six pack and we took the back roads because she wanted to talk.

You know how many years it's been since I've been pulled over for anything? Jen says they are targeting her and I made it clear that she is necessary to me on the farm. No ticket. All cops used to be Republicans.

Jen wants to raise angora rabbits, make her own thread and stuff. She crochets. I got the studio going and someone dropped by a nice starter drum set. My thing for king and country, peacefully and at my expense.

I'm also promising to a few families vegetables if they help tend the garden. The other week when I got sick again, it's like I aged ten years.

I dislike politicians for their politics and not for their skin color. President Obama is good hearted, but in my experience, the poor can't be made to make better decisions.

An old friend, who shall never change, once gave me a fishing pole and I have eaten for life. So I give away real life fishing poles, guitars, and let amateurs play in a professionally designed home studio. I believe that I am helping people to learn to be better people. Company is here. Later.

lots of people for some reason or the other do it all the time, how would you like to be stuck with Leonard Franklin Slye who under his stage name got the finest guitar ever made for 235.00 + shipping for his work with the Sons of the Pioneers, only 15 were ever produced until recently and one just auctioned off for 460,000.00 + shipping.

A singing cowboy named Lenny or Reuben just ain't hacking it either then or now.

yeah.. change the name Fudge to MzFudgepacker (maybe with a hyphen) and you got a political name for sure.

midnightsstaff said...

Hey Rick this utube video was taken down but replaced on vimeo, it's pretty well done and sort of makes one ask.... "did I just see what I was told to see?"..

And if it starts to make sense of something utterly senseless then one has to ask themselves
..if they are willing to go this far how much further do you think they are willing to take it to finish the job?

The average American only sees the brown part of the onion but the skin is the last part to rot.
Every member of Congress is guilty of something they can be controlled by blackmail or greed over, nothing else makes sense.. if anyone else has another theory please let me know because that scenario is a pretty terrifying thought if you ask me.

midnightsstaff said...

He actually bought that guitar second hand for less than fifty bucks..
it's like getting a Stradivarius on ebay with no counter bids..

In Roy's day everything was black and white with no shades of gray.
his real life story was another rags to riches by recognizing opportunity and moving on it- or her in Dale's case.

Rick Kepple said...

"In Roy's day everything was black and white with no shades of gray."

Wrong! Cold War, Middy. Everything was shades of gray in Roy's world. After 9/11, Hollywood once again got Hollywood (Roy's world) to spin patriotic stories. He had an image just like any other product.

Chakra meditation.

You're too negative, Middy, Jimmy. You need to meditate.

midnightsstaff said...

Oh I don't know I seem to remember a pretty strong thread of white hat/black hat scenarios in all the Roy Rogers shows; good normally had the habit of winning, evil usually got a gun shot out of it's hand- no smoking, drinking, cussing, cheating at cards or kissing on camera were ever seen until the late sixties- and Roy had a sidekick with a jeep.

I agree, I am too negative Rick.
I wasn't always like this but when I see decency getting gang banged everywhere I look and the rule of law ignored while liars and fools ply their trade with impunity it starts wearing on you.
I suppose if you saw the world like I do you might agree.

Happy trails til we meet again- Roy and Dale's closing song each show.

I wasn't negative then Rick.

All I ever hear is the same line again and again of how we need to recapture and turn the tide and other noble sounding crap from overly caffienated on and off political hacks each telling us we are one vote away from total anarchy or finally turning this ship of fools around.

The GOP will chuckle to themselves and blithely trot out another sure to lose moron for sacrifices at the next election; totally ignoring the conservative message we will and once again we will listen to a Cpac event telling us we are one vote away from total anarchy or finally turning this ship of fools around.

PROUD said...

Republicans are The loyal Opposition. True they are made up of diverse and differing opinion, The C-pac offers a range. From those who gladly forsake core beliefs simply tho win elections like Christy to those who are genuinely conservative like Paul. Important to remember that once elected they have a duty to represent their constituents values, that duty should IMO, take precedent over their own, personal political ideals.

The key would be having the candidate steadfastly lay out his heart felt convictions, and if elected he would obviously represent the majority of constituents, unfortunately politicians are just that and tell people what they want to hear instead of what they really believe...

Even the worst of the lot is better than the arrogant ideologue now occupying the White House.

midnightsstaff said...

.."The key would be having the candidate steadfastly lay out his heart felt convictions, and if elected he would obviously represent the majority of constituents, unfortunately politicians are just that and tell people what they want to hear instead of what they really believe"..

You mean someone with the same message Ron Paul has been bringing since before the Reagan era?

You mean the same message that has been laughed at by the new Whig party, the GOP leadership which refused him time at the podium the last convention and with that single juvenile act disrespected all libertarians,leaving them no choice but to stay at home for the election?

The same GOP that preferred Harry Reid over Sharon Angle and allowed the corrupt unions to steal the election unopposed.

You mean the same message that if uttered in earnest immediately has you branded as an outlier and dangerous because of tea party interests- the sworn enemy of the GOP.
........................ is a random video of Ron in the seventies fighting mindlessness over the war on drugs. Everything he was saying then he says today- he doesn't change his mind like Obama changes boyfriends.

Anyone believing the level of acrimony today is the worse it's ever been just watch this video of the libs attacking like a school of blowfish.
Mort. Downey like him or not is representative of what level of idiocracy Reason has always faced.

Christian Protestant Angelic Catholic CPAC

In the 1950's, the U.S. and Britain tried to overthrow Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood. Shades of gray. It failed. Two years later, France, England and Israel staged a war and overthrew Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood. The U.S. was completely out of the picture. They were blindsided, according to CIA historical documents on their own website. Bless those agents.

The experts say that we are in a transition between what was and probably a Communist Muslim country. And everyone that knows espionage from the Cold War must be in disbelief. I know I am. I used to think that Obama was a counterintelligence operative and that it wasn't real. Corporations and banks are taking over our simple freedoms to control us.

Jen and I have farm work to get done. She's found someone who might let us borrow their rototiller to turn the garden soil over. March 17 begins gardening season.

EVERYONE is planting a garden this year. EVERYONE. You should see Walmart. EVERYONE is learning how to preserve foods in Mason and Ball jars.

Jimmy, old fashioned is back. Everyone knows hard times are coming. Fort Leonard Wood is laying off those thousand folks and losing another thousand soldiers. Defense cuts while Putin is expanding the reach of Russia. Smart.

midnightsstaff said...

You do realize that having a garden could theoretically affect the prices of commodities in other states don't you Rick?
The Justice Dept. might have to step in to prevent people like yourself from distorting the market.

..they have done it before.
.."A factor of such volume and variability as wheat grown for home consumption would have a substantial influence on price conditions on the wheat market, both because such wheat, with rising prices, may flow into the market and check price increases and, because, though never marketed, it supplies the need of the grower which would otherwise be satisfied by his purchases in the open market".. (WTF??)

..that's not a quote from Saturday Night Live folks it's taken from the text of the actual delusion..erh I mean "decision" written by one of the criminals in black robes at that time.

Bottom line.. at eight new regulations per hour, seven days a week, 365 days a year means there is no chance that any one trip to the ballot box will do anything except feed the illusion this thing can be stopped at the ballot box.

In the eight hours since you have gotten up and eaten breakfast nearly sixty new regulations have hit the books just today and there is all afternoon yet to go- many of them designed to cripple our power grid and prevent ever rebuilding it.

There are simply too many Ignoramus's out there all across the land for a reasonable, peaceful approach to have any chance of success.

damn.. ebay just sent me a note that my Obama lawn jockey has been put on backorder...I thought it would look great in front of the HOA clubhouse.
(something about an African hardwood ban or something.)

Rick Kepple said...

I don't know which is worse; a company that makes lawn jockeys that resembles Obama or the fact that you're only buying one.

And I already know about the feds and gardening. I had a phone call from the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) with the ag department. They insisted on knowing EVERYTHING and it was "voluntary" but mandated by law.

My novel about the mark of the beast was "voluntary" too.

I know the government is trying to make gardening illegal. The government is good about making laws to make more criminals from law abiding citizens. There must be good money in manufacturing criminals.

Ag research says that the small backyard flock of chickens gets more eggs per bird than the big corporate producers. Multiply that competition times the number of people creating a backyard flock to save money and that's a heap of profits!

If corporations supply EVERYTHING then there is no true freedom. Makes you want to wear fur and leather, don't it Middy?

Potato planting starts next week. I used to use a tractor and a plow and now I use a round point shovel to plant and harvest. It's just the start of the season on the Enchanted Farmstead.

Haha.. it's a joke Rick-

The Obama administration just announced that the Malaysia Airlines jet went missing as the result of an anti-Muslim youtube video....

Where the hell do you think that plane is? I remember stories like this were the theme of some 1950's science fiction films.

Rick Kepple said...

I just watched a video of rich folks leaving France because there is a "welfare state" and they predict the same in America.

Malaysia Airlines has a deal for rich folks to escape to Shangri La.

Now boarding! Flight to Perfection now boarding!

PROUD said...

Yeah Jim, this is developing into a Rod Serling....

Several real-time radar tracking companies said there are many holes in their coverage so they know the minute it disappeared from their screens, but that doesn't mean it disappeared, just moved into a hole in the coverage. Then I read where the airline said a 15 degree change in heading was a normal part of that route's flight plan, speculation was it had tried to turn back....

My guess is it either blew up in air or terrorists stormed the cockpit, took control, and drove it into the ocean. As to why they haven't found debris, I think they have been searching the wrong area, maybe because they are going by the last known coordinates as the plane slipped out of radar range? I mean at those speeds and that altitude, were it being flown by terrorists it could cover a hell of a lot of mileage. The possible area is larger than the state of Pennsylvania, so it might take a while, especially if they begin with little more than a guess...

Rick Kepple said...

Two stolen passports were used by two men who boarded that Malaysian plane.

John was right. It was a hijacking. One adult and two children from America were on that flight.

No evidence has been found of any aircraft going down. Oil slick, but no debris.

Mike said...

Rick, we do have a "welfare state" in America and it's getting worse every day. Food stamps, welfare, free school lunches, rent subsides and the list goes on.

Not to mention the people on Medicaid and SS disability.

Sad to say but I have some family members on the government dole.

Rick Kepple said...

Mike, I'm on VA compensation and SS disability. I have no choice, since employers don't want a disabled military veteran as an employee. Plus in my area, there are few jobs.

I thought a 10 point preference for a civil service job would be the ticket, but I'm told that is now a "black list" and a minority or woman without military experience has a better chance than I do for getting a job, I was told.

What am I gonna do? Can't do nothing in this kind of employment atmosphere.

This one company in the area hires drug addicts and when they get hurt, they pull a drug test, and of course it's positive. Then they don't have to pay the insurance claim or workers comp. Get it?

So the rich have it all, don't they? They blame Obama, while Obama keeps them rich. They blame everyone. When everyone's dead, they'll blame God.

PROUD said...

Rick sorry to burst your anti-rich rant...but NOBODY hires drug addicts to work for them just so they can get out of paying insurance claims...It makes no sense to have stoned employees doing poor work each and every day, on the off chance that they could escape being sued when the employee got hurt. (btw, and good attorney would still go after the employer for not doing due diligence in drug testing prior to hiring, that's why so many employers require drug testing, the very last thing an employer wants is impaired, less than productive employees representing his company.

Business owners hire the very best, most qualified and capable people they can because the future of their business, and therefore their own personal futures depends on how well those people perform at the job.

Rick Kepple said...

Proud, you're figuring that the Ozarks is like Scottsdale. It's like nowhere else on earth.

I asked Jen for verification and yeah, one factory got shut down for a while because of the meth traffic.

Now not all employers are like that, but there are respectable folks that only hire meth addicts. One fella hired some illegal immigrants, but his dad threatened to beat his ass if he didn't fire them and hire Americans. He said they worked hard, but his dad is old school and no one has ever beaten his dad in a fight.

Things are very different here. You fire people by insulting them and they quit, so you don't have to pay unemployment.

It's the rich vs the poor here. One wealthy fella even has armed guards, his own prison, but maybe things have changed since the old man died.

Look, I couldn't believe that people would allow such things in a civilized America, but these things are sadly real.

I spoke up for pets at a public meeting, was quoted in the newspaper and I had death threats and road blocks of citizens trying to kill me. The North Shore Animal League has helped. The passage of the Castle Doctrine helped. A new sheriff seriously helped.

The state police tell me that they fear the return of the gang wars. Bodies found everywhere in the place that was once called, Little Chicago.

Yeah dude. If you have enough money, you can do what you want in the Ozarks and the government will back you up. The EPA is weak in the Ozarks.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick keeps reinforcing the advantages of being rich. I would think that it would be sensible to try and join the rich since it is so wonderful.

One problem with that however, is that many poor people think that the rich don't deserve the spoils that they have. There was a time when the rich were applauded for their hard work involved in getting rich and how their riches allowed them to hire thousands.

Now, it's about "those damn rich" and how it's their fault that the poor are poor. We live in a jealousy mindset these days.

PROUD said...

Rick, anyone who takes his OWN money and risks it in a business venture....And then turns around and hires meth-heads is NOT respectable!

He's a complete dumb F*ck, (and very soon to be broke)

Business is business, matters not the geography or the medium income of the demographic. You start a business for one reason, because you believe you have a talent to make a product, and ultimately.... MAKE A PROFIT....(Duck Dynasty ?)

Without a plan, AKA, what you believe to be a marketable product, one your confident will turn a profit or you wouldn't risk your life savings on....There would be absolutely no reason to ever start a business and risk your financial future. Life, especially business life, is based on a risk / reward system

New businesses that want to borrow money to start or grow must not only show that they have a viable business plan, but must sign a personal, continuing guaranty, meaning should the venture go belly up, they promise to pay back the debt or forfeit same in other assets.

So, now you're asking me to believe that someone who has earned enough money (paying taxes along the way) to take what he he has put away and risk it all on a new business....Is also willing to hire and depend on known drug addicts (in this case Meth which has the most erratic / unpredictable / unstable users) for his entire fortune and future ?

I ain't buyin that anyone is that STUPID...I don't give a crap what their zip code, or education is. And IF they are....They deserve what will swiftly follow!

Mike said...

Jim, Obama has been hammering the rich since he took office and yet that's where he gets his campaign money from. His class warfare works on the poor because they voted for him.

The poor think they're poor because of the rich people. The fact is they're poor because they are dumb uneducated people with to many kids they can't support.

Rick Kepple said...

"The poor think they're poor because of the rich people."

Yeah, you're right John. I mean, who else would employ them, but rich people?

Lana Jefferies Music LLC hasn't made one dime and not made any jobs.

So you're right, John. The rich folks make all the jobs and so the United States is broke because rich folks redistributed their wealth overseas.

My theories are clearly wrong and wealth can't be generated without being rich first.

One of my all time favorite Charles Barkley comments:

Barkley once commented on how his relatives thought it was terrible that he was a Republican. They told him "You shouldn't be a Republican! All they care about is rich people!"

Barkley's reply was: "Hey! I'M rich!!"

I remember Charles getting chastised because he was leaving his home to go on a trip and he told his relatives to not break into his house while he was gone and "steal my stuff."

You have to hand it to Charles: He knows something about human nature.

Anyone else have any questions on his current mental condition?

Rick Kepple said...

President Obama's nominee for Surgeon General wishes to prescribe confiscation of firearms for the nation.

1: nation is weakened with outsourced jobs

2: Illegal immigrants in EVERY Western Nation and hired by employers

3: Wealth hidden overseas under the guise of profit, but really it's Communism using greed as a weapon

4: Muslim conspiracy keeps stock market high and rich are passive

5: Foreign doctors prescribe dangerous medications to American military veterans and they commit suicide

6: NSA, CIA, IRS looking to identify the domestic enemies who are really patriots

7: Communications monitored

8: Video cameras watching city folks

9: Cutting defense as part of conditional surrender

10: I read too much

Rick Kepple said...

People who want to be remembered can be dangerous.

"Now is the time for statesmanship," said Secretary of State John Kerry.

Iran President Rouhani said that President Obama and the United States effectively surrendered to Iran.

That was in January and now there are defense cuts. What does that tell you? Russia supplies Iran and Putin is playing peacekeeper, KGB style.

Interesting theory by Bill Still.

midnightsstaff said...

I'm not sure about the flight to Pakistan but something obviously happened that was entirely out of the norm.
I guess we will leave it at the historians feet to decide seeing how none of us were actually there.
The cell phones is the real puzzler, unless everyone on board were already unable to answer because of some catastrophic event- no debris seems odd to me.
But we have bigger fish to fry, Juan McAmnesty is headed for Ukraine.. the pressure for war in Europe is mounting.

The missing plane may not have ditched in the sea....Could have gone down in the lush jungle where the multi level thick canopy could easily hide the wreckage and any evidence of a fire. I listened to a guy who used to search for wrecks flying slow over the tree tops saying even flying that low and slow a wreckage was extremely hard to spot. He said the only way to find one there was to find the entrance path of broken tree's and trace it down to the floor....

I'm working on my own investigation.... keeping an eye on craig's list and ebay for a to good to be true buy on a 777....or 239 suit cases of clothing.

Rick Kepple said...

A lot can be said about thinking out of the box.

So who were the two Iranians seeking asylum? It wouldn't be the first time that an intelligence agency blew up a few hundred people to get one or two.

Jim McAllister said...


Be careful not to get stuck with a re-paint. As for the luggage, one never knows what to expect.

Rick Kepple said...

Well damn. The little row rototiller is eight years old and won't start. I used it for the entire season last year and took forever to plow up the garden. I figured if I dug it up with the shovel then used the Mantis style tiller ... nope. No fire to the plug. Be the second time to the shop. My rear tine rototiller's main bearings died the year before.

People claim they can help me out with equipment, but it's all talk. Always is. I'll hire it done and I'll just trust people that much less, that's all! They won't help with harvesting or canning.

Naturally, it's the same people on Welfare complaining that they can't find someone to hire them.

The partners of the company just walked away. Nobody believes that I know anyone anymore. Not one dime of profit.

I'd sell the farm and move to Portland, but people are that way everywhere. All just talk, talk, talk.

No wonder that plane went down. People talking about what a good job they do, and it's all just so much talk.

Y'all are right. Pull the plug on Welfare and EBT and there will be some rioting, but for the most part, they'll just talk and do nothing.

I gotta go figure out my options. I don't know. Maybe try selling the farm again, since it's obvious that despite all the promises, no one is going to help do jack.

Crowd searching ... yeah, people are TALKING about it. Sure they're searching. Right. I'll believe it when I see it.

Rick Kepple said...

Well, going to go try the little tiller again. It wasn't made to plow up an entire garden.

Y'all keep looking for that plane now. I don't know anyone on it, so it's not really my business.

midnightsstaff said...

Sorry that the basic lessons of life like not depending on others to take care of your problems is still bedeviling you at the advanced age of fifty something Rick, but honestly where did you ever get the idea that resolving your issues was the responsibility of others?

As I used to tell inmates- the chains and walls of prison are for the most part do it yourself projects and most of them agreed.

Frankly the problems we face are much larger than a spark less rototiller or what the sugar rush of whatever borrowing money created by debt can fix,
you should count yourself lucky.

I'm trying to remember you offering to step up to the plate to help me or anyone else in Arizona with our issues.. sounds like you need a mom-
..a rich and stupid mom, God knows there are plenty of them around.
another buzzer beater.

midnightsstaff said...

If anyone cares here is a blog for professional pilots on the subject of the missing airplane.

..(a bunch of tinfoil wearing alarmists every one of them).

Rick Kepple said...

I helped you, Middy. I helped all of you. Or tried. None of you listened and instead, you laughed. Folks on Welfare do the same thing as you guys, so don't worry about it.

Why is that plane my concern? Time is money. I am not using Google research to find a bunch of people who knew the risk.

People in Scottsdale taught me well. People outside of my farm are not my problem.

BTW, the tiller will be fixed in a week. You don't have to look at anything, Jimmy. Just save your precious money and tell the rich and famous bimbo the same thing for me.

I talked to Dell Mack about this and he said that the rich and famous are all talk. They wouldn't part with their money until they're dead and even then, they'll give it to charity thinking it will get them into heaven and it won't. Dead is dead.

So the tiller is getting fixed, I'll get the garden worked, planted and maintained. I'm buying more sporting equipment to fish and hunt, because friends are good for talking to, but not much good for anything else.

Don't ever ask me for advice, unless you're willing to pay a $150 an hour. My private, retired rate. Had folks helped me, I might do it for a favor.

I will help Obama though. They sign my disability checks. Rich folks taught me to know which side of my bread is buttered back in 81.

Did I mention that I'm buying another kayak? Yep. Doc says not to go fishing alone, so I gotta bribe people to be my friend. I learned that from rich folks too.

How is that plane and those dead people my problem? They're dead? Are they getting any deader? Oh survivors? They cost more to the airline, so not finding survivors is actually good for risk management.

I figure it's an intelligence operation anyway and plane go boom.

PROUD said...

Rick, I say this with all due respect....GET BACK ON YOUR MEDS!

Jim, the more I read about the missing 777, the more I believe it will be found on LAND, deep in the jungles on Vietnam...

I wrote a blog to rant about the ridiculous all-nighter pajama party Senate democrats held to promote awareness about climate change....

I mean only a Democrat would leave ALL the lights burning ALL NIGHT LONG at the capital buildings.....As a way to object to:

Rick Kepple said...

Wow. Rich people picking on the disabled. No wonder you people are rich.

Well, no payment next week for those lenders. I was going to pay them, but I'll let them know that rich folks from Scottsdale convinced me not to pay them and to prepare hard times.

Thanks guys.

midnightsstaff said...

I know how you feel, this year old Porsche of mine is just killing me for tune ups and new tires every twenty thousand miles.'s getting more expensive than my damn Leer jet.
I might just donate it and the Mercedes to the Salvation Army and take the tax break.. good idea Rick?- everyone needs tax breaks eh?
..well it's off to hob nob down at the rich guys club with Scrooge McDuck, Richie Rich and the rest of the boys, maybe we will go out and take things from the homeless later.. see ya.

midnightsstaff said...

ah PTB we all know that this stunt our Ruling Class Democrat flavored Mandrains pulled was just a sop to the environazis who foolishly fund these nonsensical agw hysteriathons.
They don't think they are getting their bang for the buck with this queer as a duck president by merely sacrificing our energy independence through regulating coal out of business.
And destroying oil production from Alaska.
And the Gulf.
And most of the interior.
And off shore.
They desperately need that money they get from the red diaper doper babies masquerading as 'caretakers of mother earth'.

Why do you think they are hell bent on getting all these 'smart meters' installed before they start rationing electricity I would imagine before the end of this decade?

Rick Kepple said...

I've joined the Coffee Party. It's like the Tea Party, except we are awake and not idiots following Republicans.

The Coffee Party will help government to find answers for wealthy people with the disease of hoarding wealth without assisting our civilization. It's a disease.

I know that you feel entitled to all the money, but it's only in your mind. It's not real. I can help you, but you have got to want to be cured.

You must admit that hoarding wealth without providing jobs is a disease and there is treatment. It doesn't have to end in suicide, but if it does, don't forget to write.

midnightsstaff said...

I have to hand it to you Rick, you make an excellent bellwether for the next level of liberal assault on personal liberty and freedom the rats are planning.

Rick has been at Mother Jones or the HuffPo again it appears, since the professional crooks in the party are avoiding Chickenlegs as the kiss of death they gotta change the subject and are starting to lay the grassroots campaign on wealth hoarding like the famous war on wimmin project that gave us another four year dose of the clap.
..but I doubt people are biting- yet because ObamaCare is starting to fester.

I personally don't care what they call themselves as long as they are for a smaller less intrusive government and establishing a fair means to fund what government should provide instead of what it wants.
They can call themselves the Archie Bunker party for all I care.
Coffee party sounds just fine.
The government is a very large,spoiled and dangerous child.
So it really shouldn't be trusted with dangerous objects that might be used on the citizenry nor anything of true value like our personal freedom or liberty.

The Japanese market is laying another egg tonight, down 3+ percent on rumornews- again. fundamentals be damned, we need a war!- McCain's on it now.

Jim McAllister said...


I wish I was half as rich as you think residents of Scottsdale are.

Come down sometime and hang out around McDowell and Scottsdale Rd. or Thomas and Scottsdale. There are some nice strip joints, pawn shops, seedy bars, and weird characters there which would be the antithesis of what you think Scottsdale is.

Sure, there are also those up north who have acquired wealth but so what? They worked for it so what's the big deal? In this world you usually get what you ask for and those people worked to enjoy their spoils.

Rick Kepple said...

The rich are more hated now than they have ever been despised. They have gone insane with greed.

You people made me into your enemy and you should have paid me to be your friend. I never understood why rich people have to buy friends, but I do now.

So where's that tractor and the new rototiller, Jimmy? Make sure it has a front end loader on it. A John Deere with a heated and air conditioned cab. I don't need something that fancy, but you're the one that screwed the pooch, not me.

PROUD said... the next meeting, maybe you should consider sitting in the DECAF row...?

Rick Kepple said...

I don't drink coffee

PROUD said...

Here's a little something to read while your not drinking coffee:

Those "rich" folks the ignorant masses like to despise are actually the ones paying the bills.

Maybe instead of succumbing to fits of jealousy and class envy, they should actually think ? and be glad they have the money to carry your dead ass...

This is data from the IRS on who is actually paying the cost,(aka, "makers") of running the country, so the real greedy (aka BIG government) can mail checks to all the "takers", who do nothing to pay their fair share except whine about their handouts not being large enough

midnightsstaff said...

.."at first they ask, then they demand and then they take"..

You guys get it yet?..
it's another wealth distribution program on the rise,it's what 'Kingfish Obama' has been talking about.
(you are too young to remember Kingfish Rick)

.."Kingfish..what is that doorman uniform you got on?-
..Andy.. I'll apologize for your ignorance".. 5min.45sec.
these guys were great, too bad the PC racists made them radioactive- they were brilliant entertainers.

.."You people made me into your enemy and you should have paid me to be your friend. I never understood why rich people have to buy friends, but I do now"..

Go ahead and hold your breath and stamp your feet Rick.
The fact is you just described how politicians and banksters become rich bastards, it's called crony capitalism and Obama is the King of Spoils.
..maybe you should try the Kingfish act instead of the homeless bum on the off ramp for a change.

Haha.. just lit my breakfast cigar with a twenty, you know like in the movies Rick- it would be better use of the fiat than sending it to you.

Kingfish.." yeah, the honest thing to do would be give the customer back his money but I can't do that" .. haha, great stuff that A&A..
thank God for Utube, without it no one would see great actors cheering up millions and making millions in the process.
well, looks like another buzzer beater.

Rick Kepple said...

And Proud, Middy, WHY IS IT that the wealthy are stuck with the bill?

Because they cut their own throats when they outsourced jobs. Damn, that's gotta suck to be that stupid.

Even conservative think tanks warned the rich against outsourcing jobs.

So you got yourself into this, so get yourselves out of it. I started a company and stopped paying lenders that took bailouts to do it. I've done my part.

And if you keep your money in an overseas bank, the IRS will find it and they will get their taxes.

midnightsstaff said...

Well, I never looked at it that way Rick.. I guess you are right..

..chive on.

Rick Kepple said...

I played a hunch or three.

Homeland Security issued a warning of explosives smuggled onto planes it was published in Malaysia in February.

Hacking the plane's computer to "hijack" it remotely? Is that even possible?

Yep. There is an app that hackers can create that will in fact hijack the plane from a passenger seat. The FAA said it was impossible and a hacker in Canada demonstrated that it works.

I've made an command decision to quit fighting it and go with the flow starting with my last comment to Rick.

The mob is yet to be formed that will follow Reason or Justice, in fact it's normally found led by Irrationality, the ubiquitous Scapegoat and Wrongheaded Retribution just tag along for company.

Get your taxes done yet Rick?- I just got mine filed today.. yep, the miracle of a voluntary tax code is a marvel to behold- I hear some countries it's mandatory and not voluntary, you might end up in prison.
..ever heard of something that dictatorial?
-oh well nothing to worry about here, that would never happen.

**Colombo moment**-
"Well that wraps it up Rick, just one more question as I leave".
With the attitude you have towards those dirty rich bastards why in the name of Sam Hill would you ever want to get rich and become one yourself? Having your opinion means money would just ruin you like it does everyone else right?- you would just end up hating yourself.

It's from the horses mouth.

Rick Kepple said...

Once more Middy, for those of us who don't speak Middy.

midnightsstaff said...

ok.. Secretary of State the hon. John Frickin Kerry just gave Vladimir Putin until Monday to pull his Russian troops or... or or or..
you tell me Rick what the hell is this clown going to do?
by the way Venezuela just made an announcement.

.."Venezuela's foreign minister lambasted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday as a "murderer" fomenting unrest that has killed 28 people in the South American OPEC member nation.

"Mr. Kerry, we denounce to the whole world, you encourage the violence in Venezuela ... We denounce you as a murderer of the Venezuelan people."

"In Guatemala, you said to me 'you have to lower the tone'," Jaua added in his speech. "We are not going to lower the tone to any empire until you order your lackeys in Venezuela to cease the violence against the people."

"Every time we're about to isolate and reduce the violence, Mr. Kerry comes out with a declaration and immediately the street protests are activated"..

yep that's the old magic the elites like Lurch has when it comes to relating with the common man.

Rick Kepple said...

Vlad the Impaler meets Kerry the Sanctionator.

Kerry has been compared to Neville Chamberlain and Obama has made it clear with the Iran peace BS that he wants to be remembered as a Statesman. The guy who made peace in the Middle East.

See, that's what sucks about the future, because at the time, the American people didn't want Romney, but now ... he's perfect for the job. Romney knew Russia was a problem, but he screwed himself years before with the outsourcing. Romney would have stopped what's coming.

Vlad the Impaler is rumored to be bisexual and he hates gays. He hugs bi's, but shuns gays. Soviets don't like that stuff.

Vlad also launched a welding contest in 2012, the sort of thing that the old Soviet Union would do.

Vlad extended Presidential terms to six years and if he wins the next election, which there are no other breathing candidates, he will be the longest reining leader since Stalin, experts say.

John Kerry and President Obama vs the godfather.

You know that Russian billionaire fella who owns WMG? Yep, he's reputed to be a friend of Putin's. The Soviets own mainstream music and they also have ties in Hollywood and news media corporations too.

Putin said hands off Syria, and Obama did as he was told.

It's funny how the more I try to relax and ignore the corruption, play the guitar, kayak, hunt, fish, the more the mind works and churns this stuff around.

Trade Sanctions?

Right now, Putin probably has enough pull that he could get the UN to put trade sanctions on the United States and not the other way around.

Rick Kepple said...

And there those words are again; "International Law" meaning, global government. Obama keeps using international law, even against U.S. states to make them accept Sharia Law.

Our world is in transition and the economy is a form of war. Lawyers are the troops. The courts are the battlegrounds. War is hell and hell is open for interpretation.

I read another story that said the G20 moved the deadline for the creation of the global government from 2025 to 2017. Militia leaders concur.

Worst case scenario is that an American President vies with other nation leaders for seats on the board to mandate laws to "trickle down" to all of us.

Putin vs the next U.S. President.

Another WCS is Obama and Biden get impeached and John Boehner becomes President.

Spilled your coffee, didn't ya?

Rick Kepple said...

Jimmy, you've gone to paid ads? You rascal you!

Rick Kepple said...

It's curious that we were talking about Putin and then some foreigner shows up trying to sell some illegal medication on Jimmy's page.

Jimmy should have gotten a notification of where that message originated.

Mike said...

Middy, didn't you know that France is a superpower? They said so because they have, get this, one aircraft carrier. Makes you fell warm and fuzzy all over doesn't it?

Some of my favorite French jokes.

"France has neither winter or summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it's a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes." Mark Twain

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French division behind me." General George S. Patton Jr.

"Next time there's a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France."

Rick Kepple said...

So that missing plane is now presumed hijacked. I reckon I'll look into the disappearance, but there is barely any information. The Internet is flooded with repetitive stories.

midnightsstaff said...

.."The Internet is flooded with repetitive stories"..

I was surfing for a new hot tub cover on Craigslist and I think I have found what they are looking for. closed..

Rick Kepple said...

... just imagine if Middy's Craig's List post is real. It is plausible that a new kind of pirate is stealing entire planes with an app on an Android, sitting back in the back of the plane so he can watch all the behavior. And flying the plane too. That would be devastating!

Jen took me out to eat to the world famous gourmet Cave Restaurant near Richland Missouri. I've never had a friend so nice as she.

There is ice and snow on the ground here in Missouri. It was 65 yesterday, cold today and it's supposed to be a lovely day tomorrow, again.

Enjoy. Stock up on ammo, equipment and food. Hardship for folks in the cities is coming.

If anyone gets reelected this year, I'll be greatly surprised.

Rick Kepple said...

Jen is cooking breakfast. I shoveled the sleet and snow off the steps. This weather is nuts. I just planted root crops yesterday in a T-shirt!

Seems to be a lot more wild hogs this year. I take it as a sign from God that I'll have food no matter what.

So how's the weather with y'all?

Rick Kepple said...

Holy crap.

Investors should be thrilled at the massive profits they are about to make from food production!

I just watched this FDA video and they gleefully admit that corporation executives designed the new law making it illegal to grow organic food. Even gardening.

As long as the stock market is artificially high, the people who could change things, won't.

Rick Kepple said...

Sorry. Here's the video.

Rick Kepple said...

Well, Middy probably knows all of this stuff.

This document is why Christian military veterans are dangerous people. This document pretty much sums up all the evidence proving a conspiracy to create a better human, fewer of them and controlled in generations to come. Population control. Socialism. So Middy's right.

midnightsstaff said...

I doubt Jim wants to turn this into a religious discussion but some things can't be explained any other way..

Take a look at the pendent one of the Royals such as Phillipina Rothschild wears with the satanic goat head-

she has a lot of them.. they are openly exhibiting their allegiance and devotion to their master.

Right now they are pencil whipping in the co pilot as an "islamic extremist" also claiming his family moved out of the house the day before (or were they "moved out" by others) that alone ought to tell you something about where this thing is headed..

A prudent person might ought to stock up on emergency food and other things or if not, just keep on watching tv.

Normalcy bias is an extremely difficult psychological obstacle to overcome in times of runaway abnormality you find in any fourth turning event.

Most people will wait until too late to react and by then the exits will be clogged with hysterics.

Rick Kepple said...

I'm guessing the RSO in Burma for hijacking that plane. I read that they are connected to the Sunni's and have friends in those dangerous places. They also have a number of airports. If a plane made a number of turns, they could turn 1250 miles into 1800 miles. They allegedly have ties to the Middle East, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran, and more. No clue as to motive and no one has claimed responsibility. I like Burma for this.

Jim McAllister said...


Every day when I turn on the computer, I have about 90 messages on my other email account. Usually about 87 of them are spam. Luckily they haven't found my other email address yet.

Rick Kepple said...

Jim, I have an email address that is a spam magnet. I don't use it anymore.

Another interesting thing is that cell phone use and Internet is almost non-existent in Burma. So if that plane is in Burma, no one will know until the mule train gets out.

Rick Kepple said...

Never forget that it was Missouri State Police who leaked this MIAC report and every state government has adopted it. The government fears Christians and they intend to disarm Americans and make us all buy everything we need and no more independent living.

I agree, I hardly use that other email account anymore.

Rick Kepple said...

I'm stuck. My home is old and banks won't loan money on land with a home like mine. So I can't improve it and can't sell it.

The team has fallen apart. People going their own way. One is on meth now.

So any idea's Jimmy? Guess I could make the barn into a home and have a private home studio.

I'd love to move where there are wild trout, elk, deer, and even if I bought land, I could get one of those prefab cabins in the mountains.

It used to be out West that if I charged a lot of money, I'd make a lot of money. Where I live, people wanna pay five bucks to employ an educated person.

A wage increase, mandatory health insurance, outsourcing jobs, it's like Republicans and Democrats want to intentionally destroy the United States of America.

This is a bit liberal, but ALEC is supported by conservatives and they seek a joint mega-corporate/government legal rule over the American population. It is further evidence that soon there will be no freedom left.

midnightsstaff said...

I am really surprised that you haven't learned something from the administration and government in general about funding Rick; and it's only insufficient funding that is holding you back right?

You have probably already forgotten but the other day you let it slip that your professional retired rate is 150/hr at the moment.
Had you been paying attention to the default liberal approach to a common problem the solution becomes obvious...

..double your rates.

If that doesn't bring them to their senses and in line to your needs then you double them again and then threaten them if they don't comply.

I'm really surprised you haven't already done this simple trick to increase revenue. works for the government who can never take a chance on taking a cut in their income.

I'm just going to donate that intellectual property to you Rick; (not really)- I am taking it as another 'professional services' business deduction on my tax this year..

So it's 'mucho~appreciado' Rick... A full St. Patrick moon tonight- an important Blood Moon is on the way next month, so you better take a lay down this afternoon.

Don't tell me, Middy. Next you're gonna offer me a tiny sum for the farm with some sarcastic remark. You're so predictable that it's not funny anymore. Hey, why don't you tell me how I threatened you! Seems to be what ignorant rich people do, so be trendy, Middy!

When I'm rich, and someone saves my life, I can accuse them of threatening me and blacklist them from success. It is how the elite think and I must learn to be exactly like them to be normal.

I'm thinking writing a congressional bill again to make all music studios illegal, except those created in a rural barn, and put it in some crime bill or some crap like that.

Just in case you think that I can't write my own legislation, think again. I've done it before and it passed too.

And Middy, you're wrong about me. You've always been wrong.

Success is NOT about money. It's doing something that people say can't be done. Money is a consequence of any successful operation.

Failure is just a consequence of trying and I'm not done yet.
