How do we stop the madness?

Sobering take on the fall of Detroit. B. Hussein is trying to do the same to our Country. They must be stopped.

Merry Christmas.

Motivational Poster

I seriously doubt if this is true. The 'Virgins' in quotes comment seems to be a flag that perhaps this is bogus. The thought does bring a certain satisfaction though and I find myself secretly wishing this is a true story or at least a story with some hint of truth attached to it.

Whatever the case, I just felt it necessary to share.

"The republican principle demands that the deliberate sense of the community should govern the conduct of those to whom they intrust the management of their affairs; but it does not require an unqualified complaisance to every sudden breeze of passion or to every transient impulse which the people may receive from the arts of men, who flatter their prejudices to betray their interests." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 71, 1788

Well said Mr. Hamilton. It is a pity that history is not taught in our public school systems any more.

Conservative or Liberal? You Decide...

Just got this in an email from a friend. It pretty much sums the differences up very succinctly don't you think.

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, then no one should have one.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants to ban all meat products for everyone.

If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly enjoys his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he loudly demands legislated respect.

If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, he sees himself as independently successful.
Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal wants any mention of God or religion silenced.

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that his neighbors pay for his.

You gotta love Inspector Joe Friday...

It is written in the czars...

Perhaps you have wondered how the Obama czars operate. I was fortunate to be a fly on the wall for this policy making discussion between the Car Czar and the Manufacturing Czar. How can we ever question their credentials again?

Will the real racists please stand up...

Content of character aside, some races rely on racism. If they didn't, they would then be held accountable for their actions. Affirmative action is just legalized racism. I wish I could get a job or a Harvard education just because of the color of my skin.

If I am to pay for the atrocity of slavery that was part of our culture 200 years ago, then allow me to own some slaves so I may reap some of the benefits that those ignorant, slave owning brutes of 200 years ago realized.

Funny, that doesn't make it right, but charging me for sombody elses indiscretion isn't right either.

One Loss, One Win...

That, my friends, is a major league baseball. While attending the Detroit Tiger game last night a 5th inning foul ball found its way into my grubby little conservative paw.

I have attended many Tiger games in my 56 years and was at this one with my wife as part of a birthday present from my oldest daughter and son-in-law. I have come close to foul fly once when I was 10 or 12 attending a game at the old Tiger Stadium with my father and grandfather. This one had my name on it though. As my wife ducked in mortal fear, I reached up and there it was! A catch for the ages.

Tiger baseball has many great memories for me. I took one girl on a date that included a Tiger game doubleheader and today, July 27, 2009, that girl and me are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.

Go get 'em Tiger!

Ban on "Assault Vehicles"

Thanks to DRT and

Since the Obama administration’s talk of banning so-called ‘assault weapons’ has resulted in a huge spike in semi-automatic weapon sales nationwide, the White House has recently begun a covert ‘whisper campaign’ suggesting the president might also ban U.S.-manufactured cars and trucks with fully-automatic transmissions, now dubbed ‘assault vehicles’. President Obama reportedly hopes such chatter will give a much-needed boost to U.S. auto sales. “These fully-automatics are the weapon-of-choice in the vehicular-manslaughter industry,” said one unnamed White House source. “The automatic transmission allows the killer to accelerate rapidly without the manual process of clutching and shifting gears. Assault vehicles murder roughly four times as many people each year as do firearms. If you include suicides, cars still kill nearly twice as many people compared with all types of guns. ”The administration source also noted that while people with criminal records make up the vast majority of gun-murder victims, ‘assault vehicles’ kill indiscriminately, murdering 39,800 Americans in 2008 alone. “In most homicide-by-firearm cases, it’s one crook killing another,” said the source. “But automatic transmissions turn law-abiding citizens into killers of other law-abiding citizens, including women, children, seniors and innocent pedestrians. ”Publicly, the administration maintains that it supports an individual’s ‘right to keep and be borne upon wheels’, but the sophisticated whisper campaign is designed both to curry favor with the anti-car lobby, and to boost the economy by driving panic demand for fully automatics.

Dinner with Obama, a parable...

Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President. I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics. There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a free country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room. We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen."Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry.""I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass. Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp."And his brother Eric is very thirsty," said the President. I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I will play along. I don't want to seem unkind. My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite."Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me. I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room."And their grandmother can't stand for long."I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool. Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken. I turned back to the President. "Their grandfather doesn't like the cold." I wanted to shout - that was my coat! But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled. Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table. I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home. Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him. "Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement, and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a sub-prime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor. The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that were water drops. "By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories. I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind. There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars." I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his Creme Brulee. He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair. He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if it were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss. I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle. Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us. What had I done wrong? As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands."You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said.

Joe Legal vs. Jose Illegal

Why can't the Democrats understand this? Jose Illegal will probably get an income tax refund stimulus check as well.

Here is an example of why hiring illegal aliens is not economically productive for the State of California. You have 2 families:

" Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families have 2 parents, 2 children and live in California.

"Joe Legal" works in construction, has a Social Security Number, and makes $25.00 per hour with payroll taxes deducted.

"Jose Illegal" also works in construction, has "NO" Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 per hour cash "under the table".

Joe Legal...$25.00 per hour x 40 hours, $1000.00 per week, $52,000 per year. Now take 30% away for state & federal tax Joe Legal now has $31,231.00

Jose Illegal....$ 15.00 per hour x 40 hours, $600.00 per week, $31,200.00 per year Jose Illegal pays no taxes... Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00

Joe Legal pays Medical and Dental Insurance with limited coverage $1000.00 per month. $12,000.00 per year Joe Legal now has $19,231.00

Jose Illegal has full Medical and Dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00

Joe Legal makes too much money is not eligible for Food Stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays for food $1,000.00 per month, $12,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for Food Stamps and Welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,000.00 per month, $12,000.00 per year. Joe Legal is now in the hole minus (-) $4,769.00

Jose Illegal receives a $500 per month Federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays rent $500.00 per month, $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch.

Jose Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same Police and Fire Services, but Joe Legal paid for them and Jose Illegal did not.

The bottom line: Don't vote/support any politician that supports illegal aliens...

This is not funny!

"Democrat Franken wins protracted Minn. Senate race"

We can now refer to to the Democrat Party as a big joke...unfortunately.

Wind Power...

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, 'What are all those clocks?' St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.' 'Oh,' said the man, 'whose clock is that?' 'That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.' 'Incredible,' said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?' St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.' 'Where's President OBama's clock?' asked the man. Obama's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan.

Nuff said.

Semper Fi...

The Trap

A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Marine is better than ten Taliban". The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice then calls out "One Marine is better than a hundred Taliban soldiers". Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

The Marine voice calls out, "One Marine is better than one thousand Taliban". The enraged Taliban commander musters a thousand fighters and sends them over the dune. Cannon, rocket, and machine gun fire rings out as a huge battle is fought. Then silence. Finally one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, it's a trap. There's two of them!"

Is he truly our President?

Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Constitution of the United States reads:

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Is it so hard Mr. Obama to furnish the paperwork evidence to put this issue to bed?

He swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States not to rewrite it.

4 Rules of life...

I met this guy while I was in Albuquerque and he has a motto he lives by everyday. He said listen carefully and live by these 4 rules: Drink, Steal, Swear, & Lie.
I was shaking my head 'no', but he then told me to listen while he explained his four rules. So here they are:
1. "Drink" from the "everlasting cup" every day.
2. "Steal" a moment to help someone that is in worse shape than you are.
3. "Swear" that you will be a better person today than yesterday.
4. And last, but not least, when you "lie" down at night, thank God you live in America and have freedom.
I am not as good as I should be, I am not as good as I could be, but THANK GOD I am better than I used to be !

Liberal Economics 101...

It is a slow day in the East Texas town of Madisonville. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit. On this particular day a rich tourist from the East is driving through town. He enters the only hotel in the sleepy town and lays a hundred dollar bill on the desk stating he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

As soon as the man walks up the stairs, the hotel proprietor takes the hundred dollar bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to pay his debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer then takes the $100 and heads off to pay his debt to the supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has lately had to offer her "services" on credit.

The hooker runs to the hotel and pays off her debt with the $100 to the hotel proprietor, paying for the rooms that she had rented when she brought clients to that establishment.

The hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveler from the East walks back down the stairs, after inspecting the rooms. He picks up the $100 bill and states that the rooms are not satisfactory......pockets the money and walks out the door and leaves town.

No one earned anything, however the whole town is now out of debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is how Governments are conducting business today.

Liberal Brain Trust Performance Check

An interesting chart where the blue lines represent the liberal think tank's unemployment estimations with and without the stimulus. The actual performance is rather scary at best. The actual unemployment trajectory looks much like the smoke trail of a shuttle launch. I wonder if it will ever come down after orbit is achieved?

Prayer helps...

I learned the following prayer in the first or second grade and have always found it to give me solace and hope.


Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of thy Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Advice for General Motors Executives

1. Change the locks on the conference room doors (and don't give anybody the key).

2. Remove MS Powerpoint from all computers.

3. Move your office to the plant floor, roll up your sleeves, get to work building cars and trucks.

General Motors...the day after

Just a couple more comments on this debacle and then I will let it die. From my point of view there are three groups:

Group 1: The Unclassified Salaried Employee. This is the group that "runs" the corporation. They are on the board, they set the requirements and path, they sit back and collect their bonuses for a job well done. They are asking themselves, "What the hell happened?" Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

Group 2: The Classified Salaried Employee. This is the group charged with implementing the brain farts of Group Number One. They were expected to work 10-12 hour days without overtime or their appraisals would show that they were not team players. Their retirement and benefits were or will be stripped from them.

Group 3: The UAW Workforce. Threaten to strike every three years if they didn't get their way. Ask Group 1 for and receive full pay for not doing anything. Ask Group 1 for and receive guaranteed overtime whether it's necessary or not. Punch your buddy in and do two jobs while your buddy is out on his boat. Not to worry, he'll do the same for you tomorrow. Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

I will probably never be able to buy a new car again but if I do, you can bet your a$$ it will not have a GM nameplate on it.

General Motors Bankruptcy

The General has fallen! I spent 24 years at GM. I hired in as an hourly employee and finished college while working full time. After graduation, my goal was to step up to the salaried ranks and perhaps offer my family a little better standard of living, acheiving the enviable position of mid level manager in the automotive components group. Being part of the ACG got me a one way ticket to the financial scam GM called Delphi. Their 8 month bankruptcy is still going 3 years later. When my job ran out I was forced into retirement taking a severe monetary hit due to my age but I had little choice.

While not expecting to be rich in my retirement, I did expect to receive a steady pension and health care benefits until the government mandated benefits kicked in. After 32 years I thought I had earned that much. Boy was I mistaken. Less than a year later, Delphi pulled the salaried retiree health care coverage and life insurance coverage. Now it is almost a certainty that our pensions will be turned over to the PBGC. Another drastic cut in pay looms. Take one for the team!

The salaried workforce will pay the price. I expect the same to happen to the GM salaried retirees as well. While Obama and the Democrats protect the UAW workforce and retirees the salaried workforce will fall into the black hole of who gives a fu**. I'm not talking about the unclassified salaried workforce that receives the bonuses and cars, I'm talking about the poor salaried bastards that were left to implement the idiotic requirements set forth by the bonus babies while fending off the UAW workforce that managed to come into work 4 days a week and usually late.

Yes I am angry. I now know how the folks an Enron feel.

GM Bankruptcy

Waiting for the announcement...more to follow.

Automobile Manufacturing 101

I am not a smart person so could somebody please explain to me how closing an automobile dealership improves an automobile manufacturer's bottom line? As far as I can see, it only creates unemployment and thus increases the voting base for the Democrat party with no positive effect to the manufacturer's bottom line.

I could be wrong though.
