Meanwhile, Three Weeks (or so) Later…

* – first of all: HOBBIT-y / LOTR GOODNESS!!!

* – my Falcons are 4 – 0! Hell yeah!

* – my fantasy team is 1 – 2 (with a shot at being 2 – 2 after tonight’s game). Woo.

* – kinda blows the cheerleader sterotype right out of the water, doesn’t it?

* – if only. Oh-HO, if only…

* – Peter North is worth $10 million.

That’s why I want to be a porn star. No other reason. No other reason at all.

🙂

* – well done, Christian Bale, sir. Well done, indeed!

* – RIP, Charles Xavier.

* – RIP, Andy Williams.

* – they’ve made A Christmas Story II?! SERIOUSLY?!

* – there will be an Atlas Shrugged II. Yes!

* – there are Republicans in Hollywood? Who knew?

* – hmm…

* – warrantless cell phone tracking? Sure, why not?

But, remember, Bush was evil for coming up woth the Patriot Act.

* – seen the new Obama flag? Un-freakin’-real…

Yes, I know other presidents have used the flag to pitch their election campaigns. Reagan and Bush did it in 1984. Lincoln and Johnson did it (and, in my opinion, both tickets were disrespecting the flag when they did so). The difference, in my mind, is that Obama has a track record of arrogance and narcissism that convinces me that his use of the flag isn’t to invoke patriotism for the country but rather to invoke worship for him. Remember him asking people to take money that they would’ve used to buy birthday presents or wedding gifts and instead donating it to him? Remember the kids singing “Barack Hussein Obama / mm-mm-mm” and him not distancing himself from them? How about the teacher essentially telling her students to sign a pledge that they’d vote for him? Haven’t heard him distance himself from that, either, have you?

* – somehow, in the last post, I missed linking some of the speeches from the RNC I wanted to include, so…

* – and now for some fact-checking:

The Blaze looks at some comments from the DNC.

Here are some just from Day One of the DNC.

Well, Joe, since you dared us

How about some healthcare bedtime stories?

How about the president’s acceptance speech?

(a GREAT critique of the preseident’s speech by Glenn Beck is right here)

(oh, and not for nothing, but did Barry basically just copy Jimmy Carter’s 1980 speech?)

Or the president’s wife’s speech?

What about Clinton’s speech?

(yeah, about that Clinton economy…)

Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s speech?

How many new jobs have been created under Obama?

Hey, B.O., when you take money that was borrowed to pay for wars and use it on something else, you’re not saving any money, ok?

* – so, the Libs loved to point out how the RNC broke the rules down in Tampa, but seem strangely quiet about how the DNC did something very similar in Charlotte.

Weird, huh?

* – I think Anderson Cooper is becoming one of my favorite “journalists.”

* – Jon Stewart has his moments, too. 🙂

(they’re such tolerant folks, those Libs…)

(and very “pro-choice,” too…)

* – something tells me Jeremy Scahill is never going to be invited back on MSNBC again.

* – how does anybody take Chris Matthews seriously after this?

* – or MSNBC in general?

* – never mind that Bill Maher apologized to a Republican; I find it amazing the arrogant douche nozzle apologized to anybody, period!

* – so, when Mitt Romney makes a birther joke, it’s a horrible faux pas, but it’s ok when Barack does it?

Nope, no double standard here…

* – no favoritism, either…

* – maybe I should just start watching Univision

* – oh, and there’s no liberal bias in our educational institutions, either.

Nope, none at all.

* – don’t even get me started on that teacher’s strike in Chicago

* – “The economy was losing 800,000 jobs every month, and a lot folks wondered whether we were headed for another great depression. Now this is what Barack faced on day one as president. That’s what awaited him, but instead of pointing fingers and placing blame (italics mine), Barack got to work…”

After a statement like that, I gotta believe Michelle is just reading from a teleprompter, too.

* – let’s ban profits! Great idea!

(facepalm!)

* – love Bill Whittle. LOVE HIM!

* – “The government is the only thing we all belong to.”

That’s from an official DNC folks.

Kinda says it all, doesn’t it?

* – you knew I wasn’t going to be able to escape some nanny-statism, didn’t you?

* – can we please just ditch the TSA already?!

* – yeah, that Obamacare is gonna be awesome, isn’t it?

* – death panels? What death panels?

* – a pretty powerful piece is defense of pro-life men by Laura Hollis.

* – and take it away, Stephanie Cutter

* – so, if I like PB&J, I’m a racist?! Seriously?!

* – yeah, Obama was “uniquely qualified” to help smooth out relations with the Muslim world, huh?

* – it’s worked really well lately, hasn’t it?

* – nice shot, Mrs. Palin! 🙂

* – godDAMN, this guy’s GOOD!:

* – in conclusion, no, I didn’t forget 9/11:

A great audio essay about 9/11 from Glenn Beck is here.

(and then there’s NBC’s priorities on display here…)

(don’t even get me started on the New York Times…)

Well, This One Ought to be All Over the Place…

but, then, these usually are, aren’t they?

* – so, the NFL kicks off a new season tonight. I am, of course, PUMPED! For what it’s worth, here’s my fearless prognostication for the upcoming season:

AFC East: Pats, Bills, Jets, Dolphins

AFC North: Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns

AFC South: Texans, Titans, Colts, Jags

AFC West: Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers, Raiders

AFC Playoff Seeding: Pats, Steelers, Texans, Broncos, Ravens, Bengals

AFC Champs: Steelers

NFC East: Eagles, Giants, Cowboys, Redskins

NFC North: Packers, Lions, Bears, Vikings

NFC South: Saints, Falcons, Panthers, Bucs

NFC West: 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, Rams

NFC Playoff Seeding: Eagles, Niners, Packers, Saints, Giants, Lions

NFC Champs: Eagles

NFL Champs: Eagles

Yes, it hurts to say my Falcons won’t even make the playoffs (I think they’ll win nine or ten games and just miss out), but the bottom line is that they stayed stagnant during the offseason, imho, while other teams improved, so…

* – my fantasy football league had its draft last Sunday night. For the first time in I don’t know how long I didn’t protect any players from the previous season and started from scratch. My roster looks like this:

QB – Eli Manning, Jay Cutler

RB – Matt Forte, Doug Martin, Frank Gore, Isaac Redman

WR – Hakeem Nicks, Miles Austin, Kenny Britt, Robert Meachem, Justin Blackmon

TE – Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez

K – Garrett Hartley

D/ST – Texans, Giants

I truly don’t know how I feel about this team. I don’t see any duds, but I also don’t see any superstars, except maybe for Manning and Graham. Thoughts?

* – For the first time in over a decade I was in a wedding. Last Saturday my friends Jeremy and Mary got hitched. Congrats to them, and many thanx for the Scotch eggs! 🙂

* – cool shot of a great white hunting seals.

* – so, really, is anybody surprised  I find this funny?:

🙂

* – I wish I had taken classes from this guy:

🙂

* – no, Pamela Anderson, NOOOOO!!!!

🙂

* – hmmm, maybe the Red Dawn reboot won’t be so bad after all…

* – a Beverly Hills Cop reboot in the form of a tv series?

* – a Star Wars sitcom?!

* – I’m pretty sure my son felt this way when he went back to school yesterday:

One does not simply go back to school. There is evil there that does not sleep.

🙂

* – oh, I can see Little Man and I fighting over the PS2 soon…

* – now this is some pretty cool tech:

* – RIP, Neil Armstrong.

* – RIP, Steve Van Buren.

* – RIP, Johnny Pesky.

* – RIP, Horshack.

* – RIP, Phyllis Diller.

* – RIP, Tony Scott.

* – RIP, Michael Clarke Duncan.

* – do you have any idea how much I love the fact that The Expendables 2 was #1 in the country for two weeks in a row and is still in the top three after last week?

* – hey, Dave Mustaine, do you have any idea how stupid you sound?

* – oh, this must drive the Libs NUTS! 🙂

* – this guy is our president, ladies and gentlemen. Take a good listen.

* – I’ll say it again, this guy is our president.

* – I mean, fer crissakes, the guy’s campaign is making Romney “offers he can’t refuse.”

What a fucking joke.

* – note to self – don’t light Dennis Miller’s fuse.

* – it’s almost not worth pointing out the stupid gaffes this administration makes.

Almost. 🙂

* – “nothing” has been asked of the rich in this country, Joe Biden? Seriously?

* – oh, well, we wouldn’t want you to suffer heatstroke or something, Joe (facepalm!).

* – well done, Mr. Thomas.

* – somehow, I missed posting this entry from Kemtee the last time around.

My apologies, ma’am.

As per usual, she is brilliant. Both at shredding Obama’s “You didn’t build that”  dumbassery and at pointing out the fallacy behind the idea that we all owe the government because of schools and roads and bridges, etc., etc., etc…

* – as a follow-up to Kemtee, here’s a great Trifecta piece from Bill Whittle, Steve Green, and Scott Ott:

* – look, I’m no fan of abortion, but Rep. Todd Akin has got to be one of the dumbest mothereffers on the planet. Really, Todd? No, really?

* – remind me to never see this doctor.

* – voter ID is the equivalent of rape?! Seriously?

* – these are “Republican” women? Really?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. 🙂

* – wait, I thought the Dems were all about women?

* – and we’re the racists?! Really, Toure? Really?

* – we’re the racists.

* – we are.

* – yeah, us.

* – nice shot, George Will.

* – oh, and we’re also guilty of waging a “war on women.” Don’t forget that.

They paid tribute at their convention last night to a man who left a college girl to drown in a car he drunkenly drove off of.

The keynote speaker at their convention is a man who habitually cheated on his wife and sexually harassed women while he was a governor.

But we’re the ones who disrespect women.

Got it.

* – remind me not to move to Montana.

* – wow, another random act of journalism by Anderson Cooper.

* – and a random act of journalism by Wolf Blitzer!

It just hasn’t been a good time for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lately, has it? 🙂

* – I don’t think Chris Matthews will ever be accused of committing an act of journalism.

Ever.

Thank you, Allen West (I do love that guy).

* – if we ever considered Fareed Zakaria a journalist, we certainly shouldn’t now.

* – I wouldn’t call this assclown a journalist, either.

And now that Yahoo!’s fired him, I won’t have to! 🙂

* – conservatives being environmental? No way!

* – let’s talk about what energy sources are unfairly subsidized, shall we?

* – the Lightbringer does so love his executive orders, doesn’t he?

* – given that I’ve been described by some people who know me (or at least have been reading here for some time) as really more libertarian than conservative, this was a worthwhile article for me to read.

* – an interesting – if brief – history of Congress’ power to tax.

* – some pretty damn good speeches at the RNC, huh?

 

 

 

 

 

 

* – yeah, this would be an example of why I like Paul Ryan.

* – and this.

* – so where are these “fact-checkers” when you need them?

* – let’s fact-check those fact-checkers, shall we?

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Exhibit D

Exhibit E

* – just too good to pass up:

🙂

* – we’re holding up Nidal Hasan’s trial over his freaking beard? Seriously? OY!!!

* – I’m glad I don’t live next door to this woman.

* – can I please do one of these posts without having to talk about the nanny state?

* – I mean, asking a deaf boy to change the way he signs his name? C’mon!

* – asking a girl to remove a picture of her brother from her school binder because it’s a picture of him in his military uniform?

* – heaven forbid we feed disadvantaged children out of the goodness of our hearts.

* – nothing to worry about from Iran, folks. Nothing at all.

* – if this is how Norway treats mass murderers, I’m glad I don’t live there.

Now, Where Was I… ?

* a very belated Happy Fourth of July to you all.

I’ll let Ronald Reagan say it far better than I can.

* – speaking of Ronnie, here’s forty of the greatest quotes ever.

* – you want reasons to love America? Here’s 76 of ’em!

* – still made in America, baby!

* – very classy, Mr. Bolt:

* – be careful in the water out there

* – this woulda freaked me right the eff out!

* – that’s a little too close to home!

* – and this is even closer!

* – they named a hurricane Fabio? Seriously?

* – there’s gonna be a How To Train Your Dragon TV series? Cool!

* – a Marvel universe TV series? Hmm…

* – a Brady Bunch reboot? From Vince Vaughn?

* – I finally finished Season One of Games of Thrones. Good stuff! I like the books better, but the show does do them justice.

* – so, there’s going to be a Taken 2, hmm? Interesting…

* – hmm, maybe this new Superman flick will be decent, after all.

* – Hobbit-y goodness!

* – I just found a reason to LOVE quantum physics:

😉

* I’m not sure I wanted to see a woman who’s had eight kids naked, anyway…

* – happy birthday, Neil Armstrong!

* – RIP, Ernest Borgnine.

* – RIP, Ben Davidson.

* – RIP, Gore Vidal.

* – RIP, Jon Lord.

* – RIP, Norman Sas.

* – remember Joe Delaney.

Now that’s heroism!

* – speaking of heroism, if you’re going to take something away from the Colorado movie theater shooting, take this away.

Don’t take heart in anything political that could be gleaned from this. Don’t take it as a way to make a stand for or against gun control. Take heart that the silver lining in this horrific tragedy is that there are still some true heroes left, people whose first instinct isn’t to run for their own lives, but to save others’.

* – as much as I dislike Obama, this is totally unacceptable!

* – you know, I used to like James Earl Jones…

* – on the other hand, every so often Jon Stewart will pleasantly surprise me.

* – I’m still waiting for the day I can do one of these posts and not have to reference nanny state idiocy.

* – but that would be too much to ask, wouldn’t it?

* – someday, maybe

* – or not

* – I’m pretty sure this is NOT what welfare is supposed to be used for

* – just when I thought Mayor Bloomberg couldn’t be any bigger of a douche nozzle

Seriously, Bloomberg? No, seriously?!

* – speaking of Bloomberg and his efforts to keep us all from getting fat, I seem to recall “the experts” telling us that it was hard for poor people to eat healthy because the healthy stuff is too expensive compared to fast food.

Wanna try again?

* – great idea, judge, but what if the only way to meet your ruling is to hire blacks and latinos that aren’t qualified to do the job?

(dumbass…)

* – THIS is what the “shellacking” in 2010 got us?!?!?!

Kill me.

* – look out! Those ever-rising CO2 emission levels are going to kill us all!

Oh, wait

* – funny, I thought the science was settled by now. Huh.

* – but, what about the glaciers?!

Yeah? What about them?

* – can conservatives be environmentalists?

* – yeah, you knew this little Weiner was gonna rear his ugly little head again sooner or later, didn’t you?

* – yeah, that Scott Walker sure is an evil bastard, isn’t he?

* – nice work, New Hampshire.

* – I love Chris Christie (yes, I’ve said that before. What’s your point?):

* – way to go, Rep. Louie Gohmert!

* – I think I like Foamy the Squirrel…

* – apparently Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) missed the “freedom of religion” part in the Constitution.

* – can somebody please explain to me why Andrea Mitchell still has a job?

* – more Mitchell idiocy.

* – right next to the word “hypocrite” in the dictionary is a picture of Debbie Wasserman Schulz.

* – speaking of hypocrisy, how does the media get away with bashing Ann Romney for a $990 shirt, but yet let Michelle Obama slide on a $6800 shirt? A little help, please?

* – wait, I thought Bain and outsourcing were evil?

* – you know, outsourcing? That evil, evil thing that only Mitt Romney does?

* – yes, only Mitt. Never Obama.

* – we’re supposed to be in a recovery, right? You know, “moving in the right direction” and all that?

* – 70 facts about the economy Obama doesn’t want us to know.

* – I really like this woman:

* – didn’t Obama once tell us to jusge him by the people he’s surrounded himself with?

Hmm

* – so, unemployment dropped in every state that elected a Republican governor in 2010.

I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

* – we’re gonna start giving food stamps to Mexicans now?!

* – 13 interesting facts about Obamacare, straight from the law itself.

* – and just who exactly is going to bear the brunt of the cost for Obamacare? I’ll give you a hint – it ain’t those evil rich people.

* – but I’m sure it’ll be good for the job market.

Oh, wait

* – so, can we keep our current insurance or can’t we?

* – so, is it a tax or isn’t it? Because you told us it wasn’t, but the Supreme Court disagrees with you.

* – well, is it or isn’t it?

* – well, Nancy, what is it?

* – so, President Lightbringer, how’d that whole “You didn’t build that” thing work out for ya, huh?

Going back to Ronald Reagan for a second…

(Just a bit of a difference, huh?)

But he was just taken out of context…

(btw, shouldn’t unemployment be below 6% by now?)

Some great demotivational posters.

Jesus H. Christ, even JFK, LBJ, and Bill Clinton got it!:

* – a “laser-like focus” my ass!

And now back to bashing Obamacare…

* – “freeriders,” Nancy? Freeriders?! That’s rich, coming from someone who relies on enabling freeriders to keep getting elected.

* – “It doesn’t matter what it is, because it’ll be so wonderful!”

Oh, really?

* – but at least the doctors love it.

Oh, wait

* – but we should believe Barry about his healthcare bill, because, you know, he’s never lied to us before

* – or broken any promises

* – do you need any more reasons to repeal this thing?

* – ah, Bill Whittle…

* – remember…

🙂

* – can somebody – anybody – on the Left clearly define for me exactly what The Rich’s “fair share” should be?

Thought not.

* – funny stuff right here:

Posted by: nhfalcon | June 29, 2012

Holy Crap! I’M CAUGHT UP!!!

WOO-HOO!!!

* – well, there’s something you don’t see every day.

* – cool, yet scary.

* – on the flipside, here’s how to maintain some degree of privacy.

* – I think I just became a fan of rugby, crisps, or both:

🙂

* – the 100 hottest women of 2012.

* – Debra Messing is single! Yes! 🙂

* – women are more moral than men.

You’re shocked, I know. 🙂

* – speaking of which, I’m sure Hillary was thrilled when this pic got released:

Two of those three women are porn stars, btw (don’t ask me how I know that 🙂 ).

You just know that when ol’d Bubba got home Hillary lit into him, right? “You silly sonofabitch! I don’t care if you screwed one or all three of them or not! We’re still married, you dolt, and I’m the Secretary of State of the United States of America, and now that picture is floating around for the whole world to see! How do you think that makes me look? I’ve got a hard enough time being taken seriously by countries that view women as secondhand citizens or property, even, and now you just made my time dealing with those bigots even MORE difficult!”

* – the Star Wars that I used to know…

(hat tip to Saintseester)

* – if you own one of these records, you might be very, very rich.

* – time has not necessarily been kind to the men of the 80’s

* – I knew there was a reason why I liked Robert Downey, Jr. … 🙂

* – RIP, Adam Brown.

* – RIP, Richard Lynch.

* – I’m sure there are people who want to say “RIP, Rodney King,” but the bottom line is that the guy was just a scumbag.

* – RIP, Ray Bradbury.

* – nice work, Jimmy Kimmel:

* – add Amanda Bynes to the growing list of Hollywood Idiots.

* – does MSNBC have even a shred of objectivity?

* – “I’m done (denying the liberal bias in the news media)” – Greg Kandra, Emmy Award-winning writer and producer for CBS News

* – you know, the kind of bias Andrea Mitchell obviously has.

Joe Biden is “one of this country’s most dignified, and greatest political leaders…”?!?!

SERIOUSLY?!

* – oh, believe me, I’ll get to Nanny Bloomberg, but I just wanted to point out that New York isn’t the only place subject to nanny-state idiocy.

* – now on to Nanny Bloomberg…

As you might imagine, Glenn Beck had something to say about this.

As did one of his employees.

(I’m normally not a fan of McDonald’s, but in this case, I’ll make an exception.)

“[I]f government‘s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is.” – Nanny Bloomberg.

No, Nanny, you clearly do NOT know what the purpose of government is. And just as clearly you have never read this nation’s Constitution. I suggest you do. THEN you will know that the purpose of government is.

* – thanx, Chief Justice Robers. Thanx for nothing!

* – sorry, but you’re gonna have a real hard time convincing me that there’s any silver lining in this Obamacare decision.

* – really, Time magazine? Really?

I think this is a more appropriate, image for the times, actually:

* – five myths about conservatives.

* – I think I want to move to Sandy Springs, GA.

* – on the flip side, remind me to never live in Tennessee.

* – I love Bill Whittle. I just freaking love him:

* – great call on the “Dennis Miller Show” about the false choice presented by liberals between individualism and the “greater good.”

* – Glenn Beck thanks Barack Obama?!

Yep, and for the same reasons, so do I.

* – hey, all you Republicans we voted into office back in 2010? This is NOT what we voted you in for!

* – hey, Mitt Romney, this is an excellent example of why you were my least favorite candidate for the Republican nomination this time around.

Your not steering my away from this sentiment, Mitt:

* – you did not kill Osama bin Laden, Mr. President…

You gave the order. I’ll give you that. At great political risk to yourself, no doubt. But political risk and real risk are two different things. Political courage and real courage are two distinctly different things.

* – oh, well, if they promised to give up violence, then by all means, release them.

Facepalm!

* – entertaining conversation between Sean Hannity and an OWS organizer.

(all the rapes and whatnot in Zucotti Park is the fault of the NYPD infiltrating these people in to make OWS look bad?! And they call Glenn Beck a conspiracy theorist?!)

(and those Occupy folks are such nice people, too…)

(no, seriously, they really are…)

(really, they’re as lovely a group of people as you could possibly hope to find…)

(oh, and they’re really smart, too)

* – you know, if you don’t even know who a guy is, you probably shouldn’t be protesting him. Just sayin’…

* – I’m amazed the mainstream media didn’t jump all over this. Finally, some proof that there’s at least one racist idiot in the Tea Party. You’d think that’d be a godsend for them.

* – yup, all business owners are greedy scumbags, aren’t they?

* – so, how’d that Wisconsin recall work out for ya? 🙂

Yeah, that Walker’s a real radical, isn’t he?

I mean, what that evil bastard has inflicted upon the poor people of Wisconsin

* – besides which, when unions start preventing their workers from getting raises (yes, you read that right)…

* – nice piece by the Trifecta crew on education:

* – and there are those who wonder why some teachers get a bad rap

* – perhaps the greatest high school commencement speech of all time.

* – interesting debate between Ron Paul and Paul Krugman regarding fiscal policy.

* – thank you, Paul Ryan. You are correct: spending does not equal compassion. Input does not equal outcome.

* – you don’t mind the IRS dipping into your 401k to help solve the debt crisis, do you?

* – um, how do you buy something if there’s no monetary system?

* – so, if working for Bain Capital is really so bad

* – if I wanted America to fail…

* – so, just how much better has life in America gotten for women under Obama?

* – Senate Democrats pay their female staffers less than their male staffers.

Huh. Weird…

* – gender-selective abortion?! Seriously?! Can you say “war on women”? You’re talking about killing somebody because they’re a woman! HELLO!

* – just when I thought I might change my mind about The View

Joy Behar had to go and open her dumbass mouth again.

* – yeah, um, so just how “green” was Solyndra, anyway?

(oh, and according to Krugman, Solyndra was a “tiny, tiny misstep.” After all, it’s not like “a billion dollars was a lotof money.” Facepalm!)

* – and just how “green” is wind power?

* – could the original global warming alarmist, Dr. James Hansen, have been any more wrong?

* – the real history of US/Mexico relations?

* – I’m starting to think Obama has something against Poles

* – national security spending versus entitlement spending.

Read it and weep, Libs.

* – remember that pic I posted a while back of how overwhelmingly white Obama’s Chicago campaign office is?

Yeah, well, there are some lawyers who think it’s so white it may violate civil right laws!

Now THAT is what I call delicious irony! 🙂

* – oh, dear god, Elizabeth Warren, please just shut the hell up!

Just go back to flipping foreclosed homes, ok?

* – I wonder how this situation would’ve ended if all the gun control nuts had their way?

* – some of the best quotes from the Obama administration.

* – so if Obama’s policies worked the way he thought they would

* – who inherited what, again?

* – another day, another czar.

And another.

* – you know, when even MSNBC is ripping the “Life of Julia” ad…

(nice counterpoint to “Julia” by Michelle Malkin here, btw)

* – well, now that Obamacare has been upheld, what do we have to look forward to?

* – wow, Michelle Obama and I have the same fantasy! Weird…  🙂

* – he’s rewriting presidential biographies, fer crissakes!

* – he’s asking that people send what would have been their birthday gifts or wedding gifts to be campaign donations to him instead!!!

* – “They [Republicans] baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn’t pay for. So all this stuff’s baked in with all the interest payments for it. It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you’re sitting down, they leave. And accuse you of running up the tab.” – President Obama.

And mere days after saying that, he goes and does this.

Unreal.

* – way to stay classy, B.O.

* – go, Jack Rafferty (of CNN, no less!), go!

* – I will agree with him on this, though.

* – I’ll end with this… I’ve never been a “birther.” At first I just thought the accusations ridiculous. Desperate. Childish flailings of sore losers. Then, as Obama started to govern (sorta. You know, when he wasn’t too busy campaigning. But I digress…), there were SO many other reasons to point to to show that the man was unqualified to be President of the United States. Finally, now that we’re three-and-a-half years into his reign, I mean, regime, I mean, term in office, what’s the point? Even if he was born somewhere else, why kick him out now? There’s only six months left to go, and there’s reason to believe we’ll kick him out then, so just let it drop.

Right?

Not so fast.

Why do his Occidental College transcripts show he claimed foriegn citizenship to ge a scholarship?

Why does a promotional booklet from his literary agent back in 1991 state that he was “born in Kenya“?

Finally, why is it apparently very easy to prove the birth certificate released by the White House is a fake?

I mean, just who the hell is this guy, really?

Just sayin’…

Still Chipping Away…

And likely will be for quite some time. Phew (wipes sweat away from brow)!

* – first and foremost, a belated Happy Memorial Day to you and yours.

* – RIP, Junior Seau.

* – RIP, Carroll Shelby.

* – RIP, Donna Summer.

* – RIP, Robin Gibb.

* – RIP, Goober Pyle.

* – RIP, Richard Dawson.

* – RIP, Maurice Sendak.

* – RIP, Robert Gene White. What a way to go! 😉

* – oh, and a belated Happy Mother’s Day, too.

🙂

* – forget about MILFS – how about a GILF?! 😉

* – Sofia Vergara is single again! YES!

(what? 🙂 )

* – we’re shutting down ice cream stands now? Seriously?! With armed “Environmental Police”?! Un-fucking-real.

* – if I ever have a daughter, I pray to whoever or whatever will listen that she does not become “Julia.”

* – give the kid credit for cheek. 🙂

* – yeah, that Scott Walker has been a real albatross around Wisconsin’s neck, huh?

* – I’ll be curious to see where this move by Governer Brewer leads.

* – I think I just became a Jon Lovitz fan.

* – well, at least we know where Will Smith’s limit is for taxes.

* – tax breaks for illegal aliens? What an awesome idea!

(facepalm!)

* – I’m not a big fan of Bill O’Reilly, but I agree with him here: “illegal alien” is not a racist slur, it is an accurate depiction of a human being who has entered out country without going through the proper policies and procedures. Period.

* – 53,000 dead people on the voter rolls in Florida. Yeah, tell me voter fraud isn’t an issue worth dealing with.

* – nice to know there are no terrorists in the OWS movement.

Oh, whoops!

* – but, James Carville, you sai the Democrats wouldn’t lose again for another forty years! I read your book.

How’s that working out for ya? Sucks to eat crow, doesn’t it?

* – now this is a kickass ad for Obama:

🙂

* – but, of course, Obama’s done an awesome job. Just ask anybody in the world.

(oh, btw, the maker of the video cites the sources for his claims here)

* – three years now without a budget. way to go, Senate Dems. Way to go.

* – speaking of the lack of a budget, get a load of this:

So, after that I have to ask: Is DWS really a human being, or is she just a Liberal tape recorder with some meat wrapped around it?

* – I have a lot of respect for myself, Senator Boxer, ma’am. You, on the other hand, I have absolutely ZERO respect for.

* – speaking of Senator Boxer, ma’am, check out this bill she’s working on.

Constitutional rights? Freedom? What’re those?

* – Oh, and you just knew I was going to chime in on the Elizabeth Warren thing, right? Sexist that I am, and all…

 

* – Obamacare and the “war on women” in the same article? But it’s not an attack on the GOP? No way!

Way.

* – I know I said a couple of posts back that I wasn’t all that worked up about the “Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life bit,” but I still must say Kemtee did a brilliant job commenting about it.

* – LEGOs are the enemy, feminazis? Seriously?

* – every so often Anderson Cooper actually behaves like a journalist:

* – what’s up with CNN? Two anchors taking Obama stooges on? Take this Ashleigh Banfield, for example…

* – a third CNN anchor?! Don Lemon, whassup?!

* – now Lawrence O’Donnell, on the other hand

* – don’t even get me started on Chris Matthews

* – then there’s Michelle Golberg from the Daily Beast

* – how does a bully get to be a spokesperson for anti-bullying?

Chipping Away…

Still got a ton of stuff to catch up on and the next couple of days off, so…

* – RIP, Greg Ham.

* – what if Darth Vader had been a good father?

* – ok, yeah, this is kinda cool:

* – a warm and fuzzy T-rex?

* – well, congratulations to Chandler Harnish, aka “Mr. Irrelevant” of the 2012 NFL Draft! 😉

* – I love Chris Christie…

Sweet, simple, unapologetic, and to the point.

* – why hasn’t the media been reporting on this stuff?

* – so, the War on Terror is over, huh?

We did remember to tell al-Qaeda and the Taliban, right… ?

* – let’s talk transparency, shall we?

* – so a Democrat from my home state tweets about hoping Dick Cheney gets executed and hoping there are cellphone cameras there when it happens so he can watch and there are no screaming hysterics about “civility”?! Oy!

* – yes, I’m still harping on the whole voter ID thing:

* – remember that “Green Police” Super Bowl ad?

Not so funny now, is it?

* – it’s been too long since we’ve had some Bill Whittle, hasn’t it?:

* – almost a half-million dollars in fines for school bus “excessive idling“? Really?

* – the government’s killing pigs on private farms now. Seriously?!

* – so just where do we get our oil from?

* – how do you reduce something by 35% when you don’t know how much you have in the first place?

* – yeah, how are those shovel-ready jobs working out for ya?

* – congratulations, Mr. President. You are now our first $5 trillion man.

Way to go.

 

* – I wasn’t about to take the Buffet Rule seriously anyway, but when the guy who’s pimping it (that would be President Obama, incase I’m being too subtle for you) paid less in taxes than his secretary

* – and the Obama hypocrisy on tax breaks for the wealthy continues…

* – thank you, Mr. Axelrod, for confirming what we already knew about the economy you and your cronies have exacerbated for us.

Priceless! 🙂

* – budget? We don’ need no stinking budget!

* – yes, Michelle, we know. Your husband is The Lightbringer.

(eyeroll…)

* – so, um, if The One is all about equality for women (cuz, ya know, us evil conservatives are not), then why is he paying his female employees less than his male employees?

* – and we’re the racists?! Do you see any black people in these pictures? This is Obama’s Chicago campaign HQ, fer crissakes!

* – you know, when a member of your own party is unsure if he’s going to vote for you

* – sorry, but I gotta disagree with AZ on this one. How the hell can somebody be pregnant before conception?!

* – well done, Georgia.

* – you know, when Barney Frank starts backtracking on Obamacare…

* – um, Harry? Just because you love junk mail doesn’t mean all old people love it, ok?

* – ok, can we stop with the whole “Obama ate dog meat!” thing? Seriously? Please?

Yes, I’m actually defending Obama here. This is a stupid, useless issue. The man did not grow up in the United States. He grew up in a country and a culture where this was (is?) normal. It’s be one thing if he had lived here in the States at the time, but he didn’t , so just drop it, all right? There are FAR more important things to bust on this guy about!

Not that this isn’t funny, though:

or this:

🙂

* – let’s also drop the “Ann Romney never worked a day in her life” thing, too, ok? I have no doubt that Hilary Rosen meant Ann’s never been employed by a company. Was it still a stupid thing to say? Yes, it was. Even the President admitted that. Being a stay-at-home Mom means you work hard. It means you do know how to balance a budget. Yes, Ms. Rosen stuck her foot in her mouth, but it’s not something worth trying to make into a campaign issue. Move on.

Oh, hey, hi! How ya been?

Been a while, huh?

Yeah, sorry about that. Cookiemaker and I have been hip deep in house-hunting, house-buying, and moving over the past month or so, so time really hasn’t all that plentiful for luxuries like blogging. 😦

So, as you might imagine, I have a buttload of material to get through. Never fear, though, I won’t try to do it all in one shot. Let’s begin, shall we?

* – yes, I am ashamed that I didn’t think of this first:

🙂

* – virtual reality glasses from Google, anyone?

* – well, it’s about damn time! I’ve been wondering where my flying car has been.

* – oh, there’s some good news for an already struggling Red Sox team.

* – somehow I think there’s more than just ten hypocrites in Hollywood

* – some folks in Hollywood, however, appear to be weaning themselves off the Kool-Aid.

* – did these actors even read these scripts before they signed the contract?!

(I might add Sean Connery in Highlander II, Laurence Olivier in the original Clash of the Titans, Jeremy Irons in Dungeons & Dragons, and Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jeremy Irons in Die Hard III to the list…

* – yes, Keith Olbermann, you’re a $10 million chandelier. And a very humble one at that.

What an unmitigated ass…

* – a fitting tribute for Keith, here, from Glenn Beck.

* – RIP, Mike Wallace.

* – RIP, Dick Clark.

 

* – happy birthday, Steven Seagal.

* – hasn’t been a good time lately for the cops and their P.R. image in Minnesota,

* – a THIRD network has now admitted to false reporting in regards to the Trayvon Martin case.

But there’s no bias in the media. None at all…

* – exactly how is it there are no New Black Panthers being arrested?

* – just because they’re on the opposite side of those jackass New Black Panthers doesn’t mean the neo-Nazis are going to help the situation in Florida.

Morons…

* – ‘cuz I needed to see the Rev. Jeremiah Wright grab his crotch.

* – Dear United Nations,

Please keep your nose out of the American legal system. What happens in our country is none of your fucking business.

Strong message follows.

Love and kisses,

NHFalcon

* – nope, voter fraud is absolutely NOT a problem:

* – for everybody who thinks the U.S. stole it’s southwestern states from Mexico, they might want to read this.

* – yes, we could learn something from the Tuskeegee Airmen.

* – yeah, that wind power’s really great, isn’t it?

*- wasn’t that darn pesky global warming supposed to have killed off the polar bears by now?

Here’s a little more detail from Newsmax.com:

Climate change doomsayers have for years claimed that declining polar bear populations in the Arctic are a consequence of manmade global warming.

But a new study has found that the bear population in part of Canada is larger than many scientists thought and might actually be growing.

In 2004, Environment Canada researchers concluded that the number of bears along the western shore of Hudson Bay had dropped 22 percent since 1984, to 935 bears, and they estimated that by 2011, a continuing decrease would bring the number down to 610.

The Hudson Bay region is considered a bellwether for how polar bears are faring elsewhere in the Arctic, according to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail.

The decrease, the scientists asserted, was due to warming temperatures that melt ice faster and ruin the bears’ ability to hunt.

“That sparked worldwide concern about the future of the bears and prompted the Canadian and American governments to introduce legislation to protect them,” The Globe and Mail reported.

The World Wildlife Fund even stated in 2008: “If current warming trends continue unabated, scientists believe that polar bears will be vulnerable to extinction within the next century.”

But a survey released on April 4 by the Government of Nunavut — a federal territory of Canada — shows that the number of bears is now 1,013 and could be higher.

“The bear population is not in crisis as people believed,” said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut’s director of wildlife management. “There is no doom and gloom.”

He added that the media in Canada have led people to believe that polar bears are endangered, but “they are not.”

He estimated that there are about 25,000 polar bears in Canada’s Arctic region, and “that’s likely the highest [number] there has ever been.”

Nunavut, which is the size of Western Europe, is home to only about 32,000 people.

* – also from Newsmax, an interesting little admission from a former global arming “alarmist”:

British environmental expert James Lovelock now admits he was an “alarmist” regarding global warming — and says Al Gore was too.

Lovelock previously worked for NASA and became a guru to the environmental movement with his “Gaia” theory of the Earth as a single organism. In 2007 Time magazine named Lovelock one of its “Heroes of the Environment,” and he won the Geological Society of London’s Wollaston Medal in 2006 for his writings on the Gaia theory.

That year he wrote an article in a British newspaper asserting that “before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.”

But in an interview this week with MSNBC, Lovelock said a book he is now writing will reflect his new opinion that global warming has not occurred as he had expected.

“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing,” he said. “We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books — mine included — because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened.

“The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now.

“The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time. [The temperature] has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising. Carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that.

“We will have global warming, but it’s been deferred a bit.”

MSNBC reported: “He pointed to Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and Tim Flannery’s ‘The Weather Makers’ as other examples of ‘alarmist’ forecasts of the future.”

Lovelock also declared in the interview that “as an independent and a loner,” he did not mind saying, “All right, I made a mistake,” adding that university or government scientists might fear that admission of such a mistake could jeopardize their funding.

In response to Lovelock’s interview, the Climate Depot website stated: “MSNBC, perhaps the most unlikely of news sources, reports on what may be seen as the official end of the manmade global warming fear movement.”

(but, of course, “the science is settled…”)

* – you’ll forgive me if I find the president complaining about judicial activism to be the height of hypocrisy.

* – and I thought The One used to be a professor of law?

* – you know, when government agencies start wanting out of government-provided healthcare plans

* – interesting piece from the Wall Street Journal about what to do with healthcare.

* – so Obama supports women, huh? Really… ?

I don’t think there women are buying that:

* – I’m sorry, Mr. President, but I’m afraid I didn’t find the following all that funny:

(and if you listen closely at the end you can hear some groans from the audience that would indicate they didn’t find it all that funny, either)

* – like I needed more evidence that The Lightbringer is an arrogant ass.

* – tax hikes under Obama? What tax hikes under Obama?

* – sorry, libs, but the lowering unemployment rate isn’t a good reason to tout Obama’s economic policies, and here’s why.

* – it’s not just about the unemployment rate, folks, and it’s not just about taxes. Don’t forget about inflation, either. When it’s all said and done – if you have a job – what does your take-home pay look like?

Your (roughly) Weekly Dose of Reality v.4.11.12

* – at the risk of offending my reflexively irate atheist friends out there: Happy Easter! 🙂

* – I’m sure I’m gonna get a ration of shit for this, BUT

Isn’t it every heterosexual male high school student’s dream to bang his hot teacher who happens to be a pro cheerleader?

Am I missing something here?

* – gotta love technology.

* – especially something that triples the life of those evil (and now illegal) incandescent light bulbs for only two bucks!

* – 3,000 mpg sounds great and all, but then…

* – of course, in the technology world, just because you made it to the top doesn’t mean you’re going to stay there.

* – been on a Whitesnake / David Coverdale kick lately. This one comes from a little know solo album Coverdale did back in 2000 called Into the Light:

* – a Highlander reboot? Seriously?

* – hey, Harry Potter fans, you might wanna check this out.

* – so, NBC edited the tape that made George Zimmerman appear to be racist.

Please don’t tell me there is no bias in the mainstream media. And don’t tell me that bias has nothing to do with forwarding a left-wing agenda. That is the biggest crock of shit since the last Argentinosaurus took a dump.

* – hey, Spike Lee, let this be a lesson to you: next time you want to open your dumbass mouth, do your fucking research first. Might save you some money and some embarassment in the future.

Just sayin’.

* – Dear Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D. – FL.),

Please shut your pie-hole. You’re only making yourself look like a bigger ass than your really are.

Thank you,

NHFalcon

* – sing it, Glenn, sing it!

* – Dear Pat Robertson,

Please shut your pie-hole. Homosexuality has nothing to do with demonic possession. You’re making yourself look like an ass and your dragging every Christian down with you.

Thank you very much,

NHFalcon

* – Keith Olbermann got fired AGAIN?

Well, color me shocked (NOT!).

Is there any doubt in anybody’s mind now that this guy is just a Costco-sized dillbag?

* – yeah, how’d that Rush Limbaugh “boycott” work out for ya’, libs?

* – exactly what is “indecent” about this shirt?

* – just what the hell is happening to the First Amendment nowadays?

I thought Jan Brewer was better than that…

* – hey, how’s that (abbreviated) SB 1070 working down in Arizona?

* – apparently the Department of Transportation in my state needs to pay a little more attention.

Whoopsie!

* – Remember Joe the Plumber?

He’s baaaack!

* – congratulations, Mr. President, you’re being praised by Pravda. How proud you must be.

(actually, knowing this guy, he probably is proud…)

(don’t get me started…)

* – I know! Let’s delay drilling in the Atlantic for five years! That’s sure to lower gas prices!

(facepalm!)

* – boy, it was NOT a good week for Obamacare, was it?

* – maybe the prez forgot this little tidbit from his own lips a few years back…

* – no, Justice Kagan, there’s nothing coercive about Obamacare, nothing at all (especially if you ignore that pesky individual mandate thing). Like you said, “It’s just a boatload of federal money.”

(facepalm!)

* – but don’t worry, it’s not like you’ll lose your coverage or anything.

* – if you can’t cite your sources, ma’am, you’re going to have a hard time getting anybody to take you seriously.

Trust me, I know. I’ve been there.

* – so, just what is Obama’s proposed Ready Reserve Corps? Is it this? Or is that just being paranoid?

* – and before you start with, “Well, at least liberals have a healthcare plan,” conservatives do, too.

* – hey! THERE’S that bipartisanship Obama’s been looking for!

Even HIS OWN PARTY thinks his budget sucks! What does that tell you?!

* – wow, Jay Carney, what the hell was this?:

I’ll say it again: WOW! Talk about a textbook example of not answering the question, changing the subject, and spouting talking points. I think Carney might be even more useless than his predecessor, Robert Gibbs.

* – ““I never had an interest in being a mayor, ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.” – Joe Biden

Oh. My. GAWD!!! This guy is a gold mine! 🙂

* – nice.

I can’t believe I once had a college textbook written by this scumbag.

* – MSNBC admits Glenn Beck was right, dogs and cats living together, MASS HYSTERIA!!!

* – yeah, a $10+ minimum wage is great, isn’t it, San Francisco?

* – now, I wouldn’t say all liberals are unpleasant to be around (in fact, I absolutely love the company of some), but…

* – ah, the bennies of being a lib. Maybe I should convert, after all…

Nah!

* – trust me, I’ve got more, but I’m gonna run with it in another post some other time. I’ll end with this:

Just a little something to ruminate about…

Hey, I Had Some Spare Time

… so I thought I’d put up another post in less than a week’s time.

Don’t get used to it! 🙂

* – interesting. I’m not sure how comfortable I am to having my scrotum cut open, but interesting nonetheless.

* – yes, I’d like to live in this house. 🙂

* – nice touch.

* – who is this guy, and what did he do to the real Bill Maher?

Well said, Mr. Maher. Well said.

* – I weep for the future.

* – way to go, New Hampshire!

* – you know, I don’t think I’m ever going to get to put one of these posts up without having to talk about the nanny state.

* – should I be glad or sad that nanny-statism isn’t just an American thing?

Preventing little kids from having best friends? Seriously?!

* – oh, yes – and we’re not allowed to feed to homeless.

* – seriously, NYC? Seriously?!

* – ok, is it just me, or does it seem like the NYPD is getting out of control?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want any law enforcement agency infiltrating any group unless they have clear probable cause.

* – damn, but Paul Harvey was prophetic back in ’65.

* – a discussion of OWS, based on OWS’ own publications.

(but, Falcon, they’re such lovely people… No, really, they are…)

* – ah, nothing quite like a benchslap.

* – Dear Mr. President,

Please stop lying about your mother. We’re not that stupid, and our memories aren’t that short.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

NHFalcon

(P.S. – can you stop lying about Solyndra while you’re at it? Thanx)

* – yes, I’m familiar with the Trayvon Martin incident. How can you not be? Like Kemtee, though, I’m trying to stay out of it. Why? Well, for many of the same reasons Kemtee is, and also for the reason George Will pointed out.

Also? I don’t want to be mistaken for Geraldo Rivera (how does this fuckwad still have a job?).

I do think Godfatherpolitics has a good point, though.

Derek Hunter, on the other hand, might just be a touch over-the-top.

I understand why people are upset because Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested. Now, I’m not a lawyer, but I’m relatively sure that if you shoot and kill someone, regardless of the justification for doing so, you’re going to get arrested. What I don’ understand is why hasn’t some member or members of the New Black Panther Party been arrested. They’re offering a bounty on Zimmerman, fer crissakes. “Dead or alive,” no less! They are offering to pay somebody to either kidnap or kill the man. Isn’t that a violation of the law?

* – yep, those pesky voter ID laws sure are racist, aren’t they? Hey, just ask black people.

* – so, now we’re paying solar panel companies to sell things to themselves?

* – oh, yeah, that Buffet Rule would be a real cure-all, wouldn’t it, huh?

* – think we’re gonna see Timothy Geithner in one of those Southwest Airlines “Want to Get Away” ads soon? 🙂

* – but I’m sure he loves the idea of a $3.6 trillion budget.

* – I’m thinking I like Rand Paul.

* – nice job, Rick.

* – on the other hand, this would be one of the few times I’ve liked something Mitt Romney has had to say.

* – oh, and I’ve mentioned that I like Allen West, right?

* – oh, so this is what happens when you piss Bill Whittle off:

* – let me end with this:

Yes, America is exceptional (for now, anyway). Get over it.
