Watch this shit before you answer the Census.

Humor…

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE PETS, THIS IS A TRUE STORY. FOR THOSE THAT DON’T, IT IS A TRUE STORY.

The following was found posted very low on a refrigerator door.

Dear Dogs and Cats: The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn’t help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years – canine/feline attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat’s butt. I cannot stress this enough.
Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:

TO ALL NON-PET OWNERS WHO VISIT AND LIKE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR PETS:

(1) They live here. You don’t.
(2) If you don’t want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That’s why they call it ‘fur’-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don’t speak clearly.

Remember, having dogs and cats is easier than having kids because they:
(1) eat less,
(2) don’t ask for money all the time,
(3) are easier to train,
(4) normally come when called,
(5) never ask to drive the car,
(6) don’t talk back,
(7) don’t want to wear your clothes,
(8) don’t have to buy the latest fashions,
(9) don’t need a gazillion dollars for college and
(10) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children …

Obama is a socialist. I don’t give a flying rat’s ass what Bill O’Reilly says, or does, or what Obama himself says. He’s a fucking socialist.

America elected the most liberal of Senators to the office, and thinking, or saying that he’s not a socialist won’t make the fact that he is one, go away.

Just look at his policies and his agenda. It’s too easy to see the Marxist/Maoist in him.

He’s surrounded by these idiots.

The Democrats should just put Socialist in front of, or behind their name and be done with it.

Socialist Democrat Party. That’s about right. Has quite the ring to it.

At least America would know straight up what they were getting whenever they elect one of these asshats.

Obama’s Socialism
By
Adam Shaw

Recently on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly seemed very concerned about President Obama being described as a socialist by members of the right such as Rush Limbaugh.  O’Reilly has often dodged calling the president a socialist, as if doing so would condemn Obama as a tyrannical dictator. It was discussed throughout the show with various guests, and O’Reilly frequently stated that yes, Obama is a far-left guy, but he didn’t want to use the actual term “socialist.” It would be too much.

Here in Britain we look at the continuing battle as to whether Obama is a socialist or not as a rather odd American quibble. In Britain we have no problem defining people as socialists, nor do people on the left have a problem calling themselves socialists. It is not that those of us on the conservative right do not believe that socialism is a bad doctrine. We do, and we see evidence of its continual destruction of the country on a day-to-day basis, but we have always had socialism living quite openly amongst us. We are therefore able to see and recognize it quite calmly as a day-to-day occurrence in politics, just as one recognizes the flu. We wish it didn’t exist, but it does, and so we get on with our lives, trying to avoid catching it in the process.

Glenn Beck reading the children’s letters.

I’m not a huge fan of  Beck. He gets a lot right, but he also screws the pooch.

This is funny shit though.

A True Hero has Passed.

A true hero has passed.

RIP Colonel.

Today, at Arlington National Cemetery, we lay to rest COL(R) Robert L. Howard.

The link for the interview is at the end of this email.

Read a bit about Howard at one of these links: The Robert L. Howard Tribute Website, The Congressional Medal of Honor Society Website, The Washington Post- Medal of Honor recipient Col. Robert L. Howard dies at 70.

COL(R) Howard was arguably America’s most highly decorated Warrior ever, earning more awards for valor (10) than Audie Murphy, but he was surely America’s most highly decorated living warrior until his death.  The US Army Special Forces Command (Airborne) Biographical Sketch.

For many years I have bitched about unions. Unions are a pox on society.

At one time, they had their purpose. They succeeded in creating better working conditions for many, who would have had it rough otherwise.

Now though, they are not conducive to a stable economy. If anything, they are a reason why America is in the dire straits that it is in.

Here are a couple articles that discuss unions. Those people that belong to unions, should relook their membership. Whether they like it, or not, they are supporting everything that Democrats stand for.
If you are against abortion, you support it indirectly through your union.
If you are pro Second Amendment, you fight against it through your union.
If you consider yourself conservative in any way, shape, or form, your union is supporting everything that you stand against.

Why do we call them ‘public servants?’
Ed Lasky

Have you ever noticed the steps cities and states take to make our lives miserable in order to extract tax increases from us? When budgets are cut back because of fewer taxes, what goes first in the triage that politicians engage in? Libraries shut down early or are just closed or longer waits at drivers license bureaus, among other inconveniences.

We are also warned that fire and police forces will be cut back (invoking fear). The children are made to pay the price, too. Bands, sports, afterschool clubs all go by the wayside. Field trips become a nostalgia item. Students are forced to use old textbooks, falling apart at the seams. The PTA is asked to make up the shortfall and parents fees go up for an odd assortment of items.

Public workers unions have it backwards
Ed Lasky

Numerous articles and blog posts at American Thinker and elsewhere have begun to highlight the time bombs that are exploding state and federal budgets across our nation. These are the demands made on the public purse (and our wallets) by public employee unions who want to protect their gold-plated salaries, health benefits, and pension windfalls at all costs.

These unions are often behind secretive and shadowy efforts – such as the one in Illinois – to destroy the Tea Party because they see the people who want to restore fiscal sobriety and to protect their children from a life of penury as the enemy. The SEIU, for example, funded this anti-Tea Party website. Funds from unions, including from the public employee union Amercian Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), are pouring into political slush fund s for Democratic activists.

Inhofe to wants to investigate the Climategate fraud. It probably won’t get out of committee, but, it will definitely raise a few hackles among the idiots that perpetrated this massive fraud.

Climategate Meets the Law: Senator Inhofe To Ask for DOJ Investigation
Posted By Charlie Martin

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) today asked the Obama administration to investigate what he called “the greatest scientific scandal of our generation” — the actions of climate scientists revealed by the Climategate Files, and the subsequent admissions by the editors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).

Senator Inhofe also called for former Vice President Al Gore to be called back to the Senate to testify.

“In [Gore's] science fiction movie, every assertion has been rebutted,” Inhofe said. He believes Vice President Gore should defend himself and his movie before Congress.

Just prior to a hearing at 10:00 a.m. EST, Senator Inhofe released a minority staff report from the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee [1], of which he is ranking member. Senator Inhofe is asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether there has been research misconduct or criminal actions by the scientists involved, including Dr. Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University and Dr. James Hansen of Columbia University and the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science.

Yep. That didn’t take long to prove. His first vote, he votes with the Democrats.

Scott “Benedict Arnold” Brown at your service.

Douche bag…

RINO Alert! Scott Brown Votes With Democrats To Break “Jobs” Bill Filibuster

Seriously guys, don’t complain. We knew this was going to be a case by case thing going in. We lost him on this one, we’ll have him on another. That beats the hell out of Martha Coakley who we’d have 0% of the time.

A modest job-creation bill advanced in the U.S. Senate on Monday as the chamber’s newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending.

Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week.

Brown was widely hailed as a conservative hero after his surprise victory in Massachusetts last month gave Republicans enough seats to block most Democratic legislation.

…”I hope my vote today is a strong step toward restoring bipartisanship in Washington,” he said in a statement.

Uh huh.

You need to listen to this. There is nothing else I can add. Just listen to it all.

General Haig has Died…

His service to this nation was exemplary.

General Alexander Meigs Haig Jr., Dead at 85

Alexander Haig has passed.

General Edward Almond,  awarded Haig two Silver Stars and a Bronze Star with Valor device. Haig participated in four Korean War campaigns, including the Battle of Inchon, the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, and the evacuation of Hŭngnam as Almond’s aide.

Lieutenant Colonel Haig was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the US Army’s second highest medal for valor, by General William Westmoreland as a result of his actions during the battle of Ap Gu in March 1967. During the battle, Haig’s troops (of the 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division (United States) became pinned down by a Viet Cong force that outnumbered U.S. forces by three to one. In an attempt to survey the battlefield, Haig boarded a helicopter and flew to the point of contact. His helicopter was subsequently shot down. Two days of bloody hand-to-hand combat ensued. An excerpt from Haig’s official Army citation follows:

When two of his companies were engaged by a large hostile force, Colonel Haig landed amid a hail of fire, personally took charge of the units, called for artillery and air fire support and succeeded in soundly defeating the insurgent force…the next day a barrage of 400 rounds was fired by the Viet Cong, but it was ineffective because of the warning and preparations by Colonel Haig. As the barrage subsided, a force three times larger than his began a series of human wave assaults on the camp. Heedless of the danger himself, Colonel Haig repeatedly braved intense hostile fire to survey the battlefield. His personal courage and determination, and his skillful employment of every defense and support tactic possible, inspired his men to fight with previously unimagined power. Although his force was outnumbered three to one, Colonel Haig succeeded in inflicting 592 casualties on the Viet Cong… (HQ US Army, Vietnam, General Orders No. 2318 (May 22, 1967)
