Gulf Oil Spill

Someone please tell me what the hell is going on here? 

Liberals want the government to take over (don’t know why they think the Fed is an oil expert).
Obama says he is in charge, and dealing with it – probably explains the failure to fix it. . . .
Obama goes for photo op (only second visit to the area since it started) and buses in workers for the photos then takes them with him.  No more clean up after he leaves with the cameras.  Wonder if they voted Rep last election . . .
This has to be government run, no one else could screw it up this bad.  They let  BP do it’s thing, and then take credit for it when it don’t work.  Of course, they are the ones that were supposed to be overseeing things to start with and didn’t so . . .  ..
This is why the government should shut the F up and clean house.  The laws are already on the books but the folks that are supposed to represent us are busy making money so they ignore our laws in favor of re-election donations from the companies.  Oil keeps spilling and they leave the same fools in charge.
Obama has no idea how to lead or what to do.  This should be the point that he would be getting a team of crack engineers to attack this problem, Hell, that time passes weeks ago who am I kidding - that is if he had a clue.  No, he just wants the photo op and to claim that he is on it.  More talk, no actions. . . . the Obama way.
Remember this failure to lead in November folks.  Once again the left is all talk and no action.  They live in a fantasy world, too bad the rest of us live in the results of the fantasy. . . .

New York Citys dead cop law

Once again NYC had gone and proven that the fools that make the laws there have no clue. The latest example that they spend too much time watching TV and not enough in the real world is a law they want that requires police to “shoot to wound”. What this means is they are required to shoot at an arm or leg when they draw their gun or they will be legally liable.  Que the victim lawsuits now. . . .

Sounds good right? If you answered yes then you don’t know anything about guns, or shooting.

First, right now a cop (or anyone trained to shoot) in a gun fight will shoot for the center of mass. They don’t do this to kill but to stop the threat. They also do this because it is the BIGGEST TARGET! Under the stress of a shoot out you will not be able to aim as well as you do at the range by a long shot. You can also look at the facts that in a shoot out most shots miss.

Now lets change the rules so you have to hit an arm or leg, you just shrunk the target by 50% or more. More shots miss. The hits don’t stop your attacker so he can still shoot you. The misses have to go someplace too – this translates into anyone or thing behind the target getting hit. More likely to have bystanders hit. . .

This is not Hollywood. You can’t shoot the gun out of the guys hand folks, not when he is moving around, and trying to shoot you with it.

All this dumb rule will do is get more dead cops and bystanders while making it safer for the bad guy. If it passes then the cops should quit and see how NYC does on it’s own. . . .

The Obama Affect - how inexperence is sinking our country

Watching a bit of news at lunch and all I can say is "what did you expect??"

Stocks are going down
House prices are falling
The oil spill is not getting fixed
Incomes have stagnated

Well folks, what did you expect?  You knew going into the election in
'08 that we were in trouble so what did you do?  You elected a guy
that never worked a day in his life, had everything handed to him, and
always had someone else to make the decisions for him. . . . Did you
really think he would FIX anything?

No, I am not surprised at all that things are getting worse not
better.  I just hope things go the right way in November and we put a
stop to this mess.

On the bright side crime is down and Obama can have credit for that
one – he has increased gun sales in this country like never before.
With all the press about folks buy and carrying guns crime went down.
. .  no shocker there .

Mass Mess

Only in Massachusetts do we get this from the Governor:

"Governor Deval Patrick, even as he decried partisanship in Washington, said today that Republican opposition to President Obama's agenda has become so obstinate that it "is almost at the level of sedition."

What happened to dissent is patriot?  Do you all remember Hillary screeching on the Senate floor about dissent and how patriot it is?  How the left pushed for failure of the Bush Administration?

Have we forgotten all the protests on the left everyplace Bush went and how Congress was taken over by the Dems and refused to work with him at all???

This is ridiculous.  Just another show of the double standard in the media and on the left.  It is also another attempt by Patrick to save his ass this November with a news story that is not about him failing at something. . . like say kissing the ass of local Muslims and telling them how repressed they are by the rest of us. .  .
Seen at many blogs . . .

Gotta love the one liners

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

Gun control is not about guns; it’s about control.

If guns cause crime, then cameras cause pornography.

Free men should not have to ask permission to bear arms.

If you don’t know your rights you don’t have any.

Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

The United States Constitution © 1791. All Rights Reserved.

What part of "shall not be infringed" do you not understand?

The second amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.

Guns only have two enemies: rust and liberals.

Know guns, know peace and safety. No guns, no peace nor safety.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

Peace through superior firepower.

Call 911: Government sponsored Dial-a-Prayer.

Assault is a type of behavior, not a type of hardware.

Criminals love gun control – it makes their jobs easier and safer.

Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

The American Revolution wasn’t about tea and taxes – it was about taking guns!

Gun control is hitting what you aim at.

The pen is mightier than the sword – unless you are in a swordfight!

Those who live by the sword have a fighting chance.

Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who don’t.

Blaming a gun for crime is like blaming a fork for Rosie O’Donnell being FAT!

My gun? I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Firearm safety – it’s a matter for education, not legislation.

The day they want my guns they’ll have to bring theirs.

An armed society is a polite society.

Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

How can you praise freedom, and condemn that which gains and preserves it?

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.

Shooting. The only sport endorsed by the founding fathers.

My wife and my gun: ’til death do us part.

When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

If you are free to be a liberal – thank a man with a gun!

Ted Kennedy’s Car has killed more people than my gun!

Guns are smart enough. We need smarter politicians.

Bolt actions speak louder than words.

Gun control... It’s not a new idea... Just a bad one!

The D.C. gun ban works – just ask James Brady.

When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away...

Now that is the Hope and Change I am talking about

Gotta love this article

Even in MA, one of the Bluest states around they are running in fear of Obama! The Dems here don't want him to visit. . .. they know they are in trouble and it is because of him. They fear this next election as they should. Never thought I would live to see the day that the MA Dems would not be falling all over themselves to be like Obama. I hope this translates into a loss for them and our fool Governor Patrick (an Obama clone or vice versa since Patrick got in first)

Obama has been a great POTUS for this country. Just like Jimmy Carter he has shown us how bad the left is and how much they hate us. He has put the fear of the left into the people who can see he and his friends are out to destroy our way of life. He has shown us how much he hates and ignores our Constitution when it gets in the way of his Socialist agenda. This is GREAT!

Why? because folks are waking up! The left has been running loose since the Sixties, some will say since the Twentys and now it is time to stop them. They had the chance to show us they were right and all they did was push us into another depression. Just look at Europe, that is what they want to turn the US into. Europe is on the brink of bankruptcy. Some of the states like Greece and Spain. If we don’t kick out the socialist like Obama now that will be us in less than 10 years.

Socialism does not work, it never did. It was only a power play so the few could rule the rest and it failed. All over. . . . Europe, the USSR, China. . .. . it don’t work and now Obama has us waking up to the fact that he wants that here.

He has been so bold as to bring in the President of Mexico and let him tell us how to run things. He wants our guns because of the violence in Mexico. Sorry Mexico, all I can say is shut the fuck up! We don’t take orders from petty third world powers that are so corrupt that the cops are not even safe walking the street. And Obama is listening to this fool.

All of this adds up to once again showing the people of this country that Obama is just a Chicago thug who thinks he is better than us, and should be in power. We all should just do as he says.

Thank God this is America and it don’t work that way here. You are done Obama, you own party does not even want your help. The next elections will be a day of reckoning for incumbents. They will be voted out of office all over. It has started already! The people are awake now and we will use every vote to take our country back. Thank you Obama for waking us up. I know it is not want you want, but it is what the patriots of this country have been waiting for.

Now if we could just impeach him after the election and removed him from office that would be the ultimate in victory for the USA!

Too Much Money???

OK, Someone please explain this one to me.

Over the last two weeks or so I have watched the folks down the street that live in a new (well, a few years old) Mc Mansion redo the yard. They have been adding dirt, hills, trim, and the kicker is all the trees. TONS of trees and bushes in the front lawn.

You see the funny part to me is that the lot the house was built on was all trees before they put in the house and they cut them all down to do it. And I mean clear cut the trees so there was not one tree on the lot.

Now I am watching and looking at all the work and money they are spending. I just don’t get it. Must be nice to have that kind of cash to throw away. . . .

Union Thugs

Here is a great piece of reporting on union thugs at their best and why we need to fight the unions at every chance we can.  Unions have outlived their usefulness and now are no more than a legal version of the Mob who intimidate folks to get what they want, which is far more then they diserve.

Read about it here (thanks to Bruce at No Looking Backwards)

When Unions Rule us all

Well, we were all excited that change was in the air around here not so long ago. . . . A Rhode Island town had fired all the teachers and staff of a failing school because they could not turn thing around.  Good right? they had hundreds of applications to replace these folks and fix things - again good right?
Guess not.  The town and union have agreed to hire the original failing team back next year. . . . guess the union is more important to the town than your kids are.  Hey, in a few years they will be rid of the kids as they get pushed into low pay jobs and welfare due to lack of education, but the teachers need a paycheck right?
This crap makes me sick.  It is an obvious sign that it is time to break the teachers unions up and remind these folks who they work for and what the real job is.

Obama's Aunt gets a pass

Color me shocked. . . they just gave Obama’s aunt the OK to stay. . . you know the one who is in the country illegally after ignoring an order to leave the country . . . why don’t I think anyone else’s family would get this deal. . .

You think it has anything to do with him being POTUS? Na, me either.

Gotta love the new openness Obama has brought to DC don’t ya? Good thing he got all that corruption cleaned up now ain’t it.

This was NOT printed in a California newspaper

Very interesting look at Immigration. .  . I think DC needs to get back in touch with the people.  Got this from a friend -

Subject: NOT printed in a California newspaper

The Orange County California Newspaper

This is a very good Letter to the Editor. This woman made some good points.  For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments when arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions.

This lady made the argument pretty simple, but it was not printed in the Orange County Paper.  Newspapers simply won't publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which does not agree with the philosophy they're pushing on the public.  This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help it will get published via cyberspace.

From: 'David LaBonte'

My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to 'print' it myself by sending it out on the Internet.  Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:

Dear Editor:
So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants.  Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren't being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer.  Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented.  Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground.  They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times.  They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.  Nothing was handed to them.  No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them.  All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out.  My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France, and Japan.  None of these first generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from.  They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini, and the Emperor of Japan.  They were defending the United States of Americas one people.

When we liberated France, no one in those villages was looking for the French American or the German American or the Irish American.  The people of France saw only Americans.  And we carried one flag that represented one country.  Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were.  It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here.  These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American.  They stirred the melting pot into one red, white, and blue bowl.

And here we are in 2009 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges.  Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.  I'm sorry, that's not what being an American is all about.  I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work, and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life.  I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill.  I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

How Politically Correct can get us killed

From CNN

This is a great article on how being too PC is bad for us. You can see it time and again as the terrorists attack us on our own soil. The Lame Steam Media keeps telling us not to jump to any conclusions, it may be a Tea Party terrorist and time and again they turn out to be Radical Muslims who have had contact with terror groups in the Middle East.

Of course we don’t want to get that info out now do we?? Folks may profile and where would that get us. God knows we don’t want to learn from Israel on how to deal with terrorists, they don’t know what they are doing do they. . . .

Give it a read. Really is something to think about when even some of the media is starting to see the light on being Politically Correct. . . . how long until Obama gets it (I know NEVER)

Happy Star Wars Day!

May the 4th be with you!

Hey Greece, Your BROKE!

This makes me sick.  The country is all but bankrupt, needed to be bailed out by the EU and what do the "public servants" do?  Well riot in the streets over cuts of course!  They obviously have liberal brain issues.

Folks, get over it.  Face the fact that your country is out of money because they have too many of you on the public payroll doing too many hack jobs.  (I can see Massachusetts in the same position soon)

But no, they want the money to bail out the country but they don't want to fix any of the issues that caused the problems.  Once again you have the unions and the socialists with unreal views of reality and when they are proven to fail, they want someone else to pay the bill so they can do it again. . . . see if we do it harder this time it will work right?

The US needs to learn from Greece.  We are heading the same way with all the public money (read tax payer money) being thrown around and down the rat hole of the welfare state.  We have some hard and unpopular decision to make such as cutting hand outs, cutting welfare, killing the new health law, and stopping illegal's from coming into the country.  If we fail to learn from Greece then our path  can only take us to the same place.  We need to learn from this and make the cuts now.  Will it hurt? sure.  Do we have a choice – only when we do it, not if. . . .

Thank you Mayor Bloomberg for showing the real you!

The first things Bloomberg said after the attempted bombing was that it may be someone who was against health care. . . . WTF??  This guy is like all the liberals trying to take our rights away – total tunnel vision.  Any attack is from someone who is against their politics.  They just can't see that the terrorists are real and still want to get us. . . 

And what happened?  They find the guy and he is from Pakistan and wanted to kill Americans. . .

Sorry Mayor, he was not a Tea Party Patriot, or any other of the numerous Patriotic folks you would blame for this. . .  nope, he is the real thing, a middle eastern terrorist. . . a bad one but still one.

I just wish I thought the liberals learned something from this but I doubt it.

Got Water??

Boston and the surrounding area is a mess since they lost water today with a water main break. Folks are a mess over it already and it has not been a full day yet.

After seeing this, I can just imagine the chaos there would be if something really went wrong in town. . . . Thank God I don’t live in the city. . .
