The stupidity of my country astounds me sometimes!!!
You folks, Americans I mean, are really thinking that putting this guy in office is a good thing...actually, that's not fair, because apparently, most of the world wants this guy to be president of the U.S., so it's not just Americans that are stupid.
Listen to this audio clip from 2001. You'll hear Obama say that it's the constitutions fault that more wealth hasn't been redistributed. He believes it's an administrative function and guess what you people are planning to do...put this socialist in the highest administrative position in our country!
I'm not moving out of the country if this guy gets elected, but I'll definitely be hiding somewhere waiting for the revolution that follows!
More media bias from the NYT!!!
A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A New York Times reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the biker says, "Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life." The biker replies, "Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right."
The reporter says, "Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist from the New York Times, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?"
The biker replies, "I'm a U. S. Marine and a conservative Republican."
The journalist leaves. The following morning the biker buys The New York Times to see if it indeed brings news of his actions and reads, on the front page:
U. S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
Bet you thought this was gonna have something to do with the NYT backing Obama in the election! Yeah right, like that was really a news flash?!??!
You know, I said I have a little time on my hands...
I went to the McCain/Palin rally today here in Virginia Beach. I had to park down by the beach and walk back to the convention center. Not a bad walk and such a nice day for it too!
The first thing I noticed when I got up to where the line was forming (and it was a very long line)was VB's finest doing their best to keep the rowdy republicans in line...
As the line headed down a little farther there appeared to be a little gridlock going on...just like on the freeway, after I found out the reason for the gridlock, traffic started to move again. What was the reason you ask???
First came the steelworkers for Obama...
...then some "end of days" craziness!
After that, the line moved just fine. It was a very long line, complete with TSA security at the end!
I'm curious to hear how the news reports this event. I hear folks saying that they're not being honest about the number of people that show up to McCain rallies. I can't give you a head count, but I can tell you that I saw less people at both my daughters HS graduations and they went to an HS with a graduating class of around 750 kids.
The rest of the pictures I took, at least the ones I feel are worthy of sharing are here attached from my photobucket account.
I tried to get as many pictures of the different signs I could find and then some pictures of all the different candidates and the special guest Bocephus! They're displayed in the slide show at the bottom...enjoy.
What? You don't know who Bocephus is? Have you ever watched the intro to Monday Night Football? He's the guy that sings it...oh yeah, BTW...the UNDEFEATED SUPERBOWL CHAMPION NEW YORK GIANTS are playing football tonight...ain't life grand?
It's getting bad out there!!!
So, the stock market is tanking, the country looks like it's going to turn liberal...I'm unemployed...but life is still pretty good!
I've got some plans in the works to deal with this unemployment thing...gonna start making money for Andy. All I've been doing since I retired from the USN is making money for other people! I mean, come on, these bankers and mortgage people don't even have to make a profit and they make money! The president of one investment company that went bankrupt left with hundreds of millions of dollars for about five years work, if you can call it that, left his company dead and walked away a wealthy man. What a crock!
My money advisor told me yesterday that we, that's the govt and we the people, I guess, should eminent domain his five mansions and his bank accounts. He said, we won't take it all. We'll leave him a couple of mil to live on...taking it all, my financial guy suggests would be too cruel...poor baby! But I could live with that...I know there are a few Supreme Court Justices that just love that eminent domain law. They've allowed cities to snatch up homes just because a city said they could make the area more prosperous! Why not snatch up a few mansions for the common good?
If we're gonna make the govt buy up bad mortgages, she ought to get a few good ones too!
My friend explained how a lot of this housing thing was working...he said out there where he lives, they'd fly private jets to meet up with clients on the west coast...fly them east, drive them through some new housing developments and they'd pick out a few...then, they'd fly them back to the coast, pick out a few more suckers and sell them the same houses with about a $50k mark up...one big circle jerk...eventually, some more bastard buys the house to live in and the price is already overinflated, then the housing market corrects itself and now they're stuck in a mortgage that's higher than the value of their home!
I say they ought to leave them all to wallow in their own stupidity! Why should my tax dollars pay to bail these arrogant SOB's out? Look at AIG! They take billions from the govt then send the execs on a lavish vacation to an exclusive spa in southern Cal, all on the taxpayers backs. Now they need more money! And they actually had to be forced to stop another boondoggle to a high dollar resort in CA. Who do these people think they are?
You know what else I heard on TV yesterday? See, I have time to sit and watch TV..I'm unemployed, remember? I was watching Lou Dobbs on CNN yesterday and I heard Roger Hedgecock of San Diego, he used to be mayor of San Diego, say that there were over $5 million worth of foreclosures in California that belonged to illegal aliens! How the hell does someone who's in this country illegally get the right to buy a house? Roger said that there were over 10,000 foreclosures in one district in SD county that were ALL illegal aliens!!!
Whose fault is that? Who decided that people that sneak across the border are good credit risks? You know, when I was a third class PO in the navy I couldn't get Navy Federal Credit Union to loan me $300 because I didn't have any credit. Someone please tell me how an illegal alien can get a credit rating high enough to qualify for any kind of home loan!
The country's going socialist on me man! I can't believe it really looks like my fellow citizens are gonna put the most liberal guy in the senate in the white house...that's just wrong...wrong I tell ya!
A very very creepy Halloween story!
Got this from a friend in an email...
Don't Flirt at the Halloween Party!!
A wife got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the Halloween party alone.
He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, woke without pain and as it was still early, decided go to the party.
As her husband didn't know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him. So she joined the party and soon spotted her husband in his costume, cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice 'chick' he could and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.
His wife went up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his new partner high and dry and devoted his time to her. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.
After more drinks he finally whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and made passionate love in the back seat.
Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make up for his outrageous behavior.
She was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of time he had. 'Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there.' Then she asked, 'Did you dance much?'
He replied, I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the spare room and played poker all evening.' You must have looked really silly wearing that costume playing poker all night!' she said with unashamed sarcasm. To which the husband replied, 'Actually, I gave my costume to your brother, apparently he had the time of his life.
