View From Inside the Obamachine

This at Hillbuzz. I heard Rush read it on the radio this afternoon.

Thanks Stacy for turning me on to that site. Some great Obambashing going on there.

On a side note, if Obama becomes president, I have four years to come up with clever ways to mess with his name.

So far:

Obampocalypse

Barackopocalypse

Obamachine (as seen in the title)

Obahmzombies

Obamalamadingdong

Baracking is the kind of vomiting you do after watching the main stream media get the big "O" over him.

The kiddies like to sing Barack Obama to the tune of La Cucaracha and make up lyrics.

Barack Obama
Barack Obama
Doesn't want to run no more
da da da da....

You can make up your own if you like.

Thuh end.

The 1st Amendment Plays Defense

Take a look at this little turd-squeeze try and steal this dude's McCain-Palin campaign sign to replace it with an Obama-Hair Plugs sign and get the cattle prod for his mischief. I'm betting that his mental midget father encouraged the little hooligan to do it. Looks like the 1st Amendment has to play defense just to exist these days.





We Can Vote However We Like

Got this at Ace.

Love it.

Read the lyrics. It's a call and response rap, so I tried to clear it up with some caps and italics. Frankly they're all messed up, but you'll figure it out.

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obamas new, hes younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
Hell bring a change, he's got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq's a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes - you know Obama Wont

PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS - You know McCain wont!

If You're the Gambling Type

You can create your own electoral map. I imagine you can lay some bets with your friends too. I don't gamble. I'm not good with numbers games.

Sorry Nigel

Dear Nigel,

Before you went out of town you shot me an email asking me to babysit this blog. And I'm so sorry that I haven't been keeping a good watch on it. I've allowed comments to back up, and cobwebs to grow around its corners. So I have to make an admission. This may hurt.

You see I haven't been babysitting this blog because I've been babysitting a dog. And Nigel, his name is Rigel. No kidding.

I call him Diaper Dog. You see, I took on a job as a dog walker so that I could pay for my son's private school and still homeschool my daughter which has been nice, but this week I have Rigel and his dog siblings Peanut and Shelby. He's an elderly border collie that's incontinent and arthritic, and on pain meds, incontinence meds and heart meds. He's the poster dog for euthanasia. His legs don't work, so four times a day I have to hang on to his diaper and his collar and walk him like a rocking horse down the front stairs, so that I can drag him into the grass. Most of the time he poops while you're dragging him. Well, at least when he poops outside. Sometimes I find it in the living room. After I walk him, I change the adult diaper that's wrapped around him. I have to wipe him and powder him and duct tape a Depends on him. Then I rocking horse him back upstairs. Four. Times. A. Day. Hubby may help by getting me a sheet of plywood so I can make a ramp to drag Rigel down. It would come in handy when he poops, because he could poop while sliding, which may be entertaining to him. The other two dogs in the home are a toothless old poodle named Peanut who looks like Andy Warhol and tries to bite, and Shelby the sheltie who is on thyroid medicine.

I also walk a cocker spaniel in the morning and evening for a sweet little old man who lives in an assisted living community.

The day is so broken up I don't have time for much but to run quick errands, homeschool my daughter, feed my family, and get a shower.

I think Woman of Abomination is sleeping with my husband while I'm busy, she's never been much help to me so I'm not sure she can help you much either.

Sorry Nigel,
Mee-shell

Preparing for an Obama Presidency

Tomorrow I am leaving the country (no…not permanently…sorry). I will be returning the day after the election and I am fully resigned to the fact that I should expect to be returning to a country where Barack Hussein Obama is the President-Elect.

That fact certainly does not come without some trepidation. Since the Summer of ’07, I’ve felt that I simply could not trust this man. Despite his media-created image, Barack Obama is not a unifier.

Well, I suppose he could be if we were all willing to kneel down at his altar.

I am prepared to fight for the next four years against what a Barack Obama-led America promises to be.

However…

I observed very carefully the childish actions of the losers in the past two Presidential Elections. I am resolved not to repeat them. Specifically:

• Should John McCain lose by a slim margin (even in light of the massive voter fraud ACORN has inflicted, and despite Barack Obama’s disregard for campaign finance laws), I will not spend the next four years whining that the election was “stolen”.

• Should John McCain somehow win the popular vote, but lose the electoral vote, I will not claim that Obama was
“selected, not elected”. I will not cry that the Electoral College is outdated or unfair.

• Should Barack Obama be elected President, I will pray for him…that God will give him wisdom to lead our country. Yes,
knowing what we know about him (and especially what we DON’T know about him), I currently do not have the confidence that he can lead our country any better than…say…Jimmy Carter. But he would be our President…and I always pray for America’s leadership.

• Should Barack Obama be elected President, I will not get any bumper stickers. None. Especially those that say “
Barack Obama is not MY President”, or “Don’t Blame Me, I voted for McCain”, or “Somewhere in Kenya, a Village is missing its Idiot.” That crap is bullshit. Like it or not, if Obama is elected President, he will be my President. I’m an American before anything else.

• Should Barack Obama be elected President, I will
not go into a deep depression.

• Should Barack Obama be elected President,
I will not threaten to move to another country. Hell…why didn’t all of those retards who made that threat during the last two elections LEAVE like they promised? McCain would be winning this election right now by a landslide.

I’m sure if McCain pulls this out, I’ll be returning to more incessant whining by liberals. That would be music to my ears.

(BTW, I cannot divulge my destination. See…I’ve pissed off more than my share of Islamotards and the only thing I can say that my destination has been flagged by the State Department as a place where Islamotards like to kidnap Americans. I don’t need one of those looking for me)

The Worst Football Officials in the History of Football...

...are the monkeys currently trying to officiate tonight's USC/Arizona game. I've watched approximately four minutes of game action and already these morons have blown four calls and repeatedly sodomized the Arizona Wildcats.

Yes, that includes tonight's celebrity replay official, Stevie Wonder.

And yes...these are Pac-10 officials.

Update: Despite yet ANOTHER horseshit non-call by these idiot officials, Arizona is hanging tough...10-10 in the 3rd.

Update: 4th Quarter and the official missed an obvious intentional grounding by the SC quarterback. My gosh...why don't these officials ever make a bullshit call AGAINST USC?

Pigs Flying: A reporter has the guts to challenge Joe Biden

And he don't like it. Count the lies...I'll give you my tally at the end:



1. "We haven't paid them (ACORN) one single penny". Gee Joe..."we" is an inclusive pronoun. The Obama campaign has given ACORN over $800,000.

2. "There IS no relationship" (between the Obama campaign and ACORN). See lie #1. And this.

3. George Bush and John McCain have "devasted" the middle class. Really? Devasted?

4. About Obama's tax plan..."He is NOT spreading the wealth around". Wow. You want that one back, Joe?

Now there were probably more lies in that interview, but I was enthralled with watching Joe Biden squirm and turn into a class-A dickhead ("I don't know who's writing your questions"...your answer Joe, FINALLY someone who has the guts and journlistic integrity to ask you some REAL questions).

Michelle Malkin:

The increasingly erratic, super-gaffetastic Biden was so upset that the campaign canceled an interview West’s station had scheduled with his wife, Jill. The Orlando Sentinel reports:

Why did Barack Obama’s campaign cancel a WFTV-Channel 9 interview with Jill Biden, wife of Sen. Joe Biden? The campaign cited “an unprofessional interview” WFTV’s Barbara West did Thursday with Joe Biden. In a statement Friday, Adrianne Marsh, Florida spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign, said the station, in talking with Sen. Biden, was “both combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.” Marsh said West’s insistence that Obama was an organizer for ACORN was “100 percent false.” “In a line of questioning that would make Rush Limbaugh proud, West even went as far as to quote Karl Marx, a Communist icon, in a disturbing attempt to associate Barack Obama with socialism,” Marsh wrote. West said, “I think I asked him some pointed questions. . . . I don’t think I was rude or inconsiderate to him.”
She was completely professional and gracious.


But remember: Anything less than total sycophancy from the Obamedia is considered “combative.”

Sarah Palin really IS a hockey mom! (Update: Moron sighting at the game)

Dropping the puck tonight in St. Louis...far more cheers than boos:




ST. LOUIS -- Sarah Palin got a big welcome from St. Louis Blues fans when she dropped the ceremonial first puck. And when the first on-ice fight broke out, the Republican vice presidential nominee returned the enthusiasm.

The self-described "hockey mom" got more cheers than boos on Friday night before the Blues played the Los Angeles Kings. Some in the near-capacity crowd at the Scottrade Center booed, but they were all but drowned out by loud cheers for the Alaska governor and running mate of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Just minutes into the game, Blues enforcer Cam Janssen and Kings tough guy Sean O'Donnell dropped the gloves and began to fight near center ice. By then, Palin was in a luxury box with Blues principal owner Dave Checketts.

Palin watched the fight intently, clapping as the fight got more intense. By the time referees separated the combatants, Palin was waving an oversized foam Blues finger.


Only a true hockey mom would get "into" a hockey fight.

But as always, there's something the media will hang on Palin...like a goalie's lack of coordination:

Palin's appearance might have been costly to the Blues as goalie Manny Legace left the game after one period with an injury that possibly occurred when he tripped over the carpet placed on the ice for Palin and her family to walk on.


Douchebag "Sportswriter" Dennis Dodd:

Sarah Palin (and her running mate) just lost my vote.

Palin was in St. Louis Friday night to drop the ceremonial puck in the St. Louis Blues-L.A. Kings game. Blues goalie Manny Legace slipped on the carpet that was left on the ice for her and apparently tweaked his left knee. Legace has had knee problems in the past. Who knows what this is going to mean to an already struggling franchise

Nice job, Sarah.


Update: Fellow Moron Eddie Bear was in attendance.

Is Renee Mangrum lurking around my blog?

It's possible.

Remember her? She's the "tolerant" lesbian liberal who along with partner...uh...lover...uh wife(?) Mara McWilliams left their SUV parked outside a family's home:



Although I do have contact information and other personal information for Renee, I didn't post any of that...because that's just not how I roll. Yeah, what she and her "wife" did was completely despicable and I am sure some of you would like to let her know...still, I just don't do that.

Well, I just got this (anonymous of course) comment on my sarcastic post entitled Reminder: Voting for Proposition 8 means you are bigot:

Yeah, you got that right! Proposition 8 is about HATE and discrimination. Don't let the religious wrong convince you otherwise.


Now ordinarily I would just leave something like that alone...just another gutless "anonymous" libtard sounding off. Except this one smelled fishy...and here's why:


You have to click on it to make it big enough to read


Anyone want to take a guess which Bay Area bank Renee works at?

I'm not saying it's her. It could be. Or maybe it's just another Silicon Valley Bank employee spreading their own brand of tolerance on company time...

Reminder: Not voting for Obama means you're racist

Kudos to Potfry at The Nose on Your Face for this gem:



And why would you vote for that cracker McCain? He doesn't even want your vote:



You want to know who is REALLY a racist for not voting for Obama? This guy:



Jonah Goldberg:

We need to rewrite those old Schoolhouse Rock cartoons, because now virtually any adjective, noun, verb, or adverb aimed at Barack Obama that is not obsequiously sycophantic or wantonly worshipful runs the risk of being decried as racist. Community organizer? Racist! Mentioning his middle name? Racist! Arrogant? Racist! Palling around with a (white) terrorist? Racist! Celebrity? Racist! Cosmopolitan? Racist! This? Racist! That? Racist! The other thing? Oh man, that’s really racist.

The new Schoolhouse Rock cartoon: “Conjunction: a word that connects a racist attack and Barack Obama.”

Reminder: Voting for Proposition 8 means you are a bigot

And I just want to also remind you not to fall for the "scare tactics" of those pro-Prop 8 ads.

The lesbian and gay communty is NOT pushing their agenda on our kids.

Mara McWilliams and Renee Mangrum: The faces of liberal tolerance

The two married lesbians parked this SUV outside a Mormon family's home:



"They came last night, washed the paint off and drove away," said Bob Sundstrom, whose family incurred the wrath of two gay-marriage supporters after the family hung a huge banner on their garage in favor of the ballot measure banning same-sex marriage. "What a relief, I'm happy it's gone."

Sunday, two women in a Chevrolet Surbuban drove up in front of the Sundstrom's home and painted the sport-utility vehicle's windows with slogans accusing the devout Mormon family of seven of being "bigots" and "haters." So for the next few days, the Sundstroms were forced to reckon with the eyesore. Police told them the vehicle would be towed away if was not moved in three days.

Tuesday evening, however, one of the women whom Sundstrom recognized from the previous encounter showed up, washed off the slogans and then left in the SUV.

"She wasn't in the mood for conversation. It's obvious we weren't going to change each other's view," Sundstrom said. "She brought her own bucket to wash off the paint."

The SUV is registered to Mara McWilliams and Renee Mangrum, who married in 2004 when San Francisco began performing gay marriages. Neither could be reached for comment.


And neither will be reached for comment. Because libtards cannot be held accountable for their actions, yo.

Interestingly, Mara has a ready-made excuse for her actions. She's bi-polar:

I believe the more we educate each other and unite for the sake of mental wellness for all, our world would be a better place for our children to play. I hope you share this belief, if so, welcome to our journey…

Quite honestly, I have been to hell and back and I am proud to be able to stand here tall and say I have survived, and I am continuing to survive, my illness and society’s stereotypes of me. I am also simply a woman, mother, wife, artist, poet, author and a mental health advocate.

While growing up, my parents thought something was a little “off” about my mood swings...



Mara McWilliams: Still "a little off"


Mara's Facebook page leaves little doubt as to her position on Prop 8.

Curiously, Mara's website is temporarily offline.

Here...the tolerant liberal lesbian couple on their wedding day. Don't they look like a happy couple? Mara's lovely bride Renee is on the right:



I wonder if they are teaching their daughter their brand of liberal tolerance. From the LA Times in 2004:

“We’re already a family,” said Mara McWilliams, a 34-year-old mental health worker from San Jose, as she waited in line for her turn in the clerk’s office Sunday morning. Her 8-year-old daughter, Serena, clutched her leg as McWilliams’ partner of four years, Renee Mangrum, dashed off to get coffee. “This is to show the world we’re already a family. We’re normal, professional people. We’re not here with our freak on.”

Don't **** with Megyn Kelly

Watch Fox babe Megyn Kelly tear Hofstra professor and total tool Alan Singer a new a-hole...

Via Hot Air:



Singer claims his life has been threatened. Unless he produces those emails, I call bullshit. It was just his feeble attempt at keeping Kelly's fangs out of his flesh.

It didn't work.

I don't advocate sending this jackass an email to threaten or intimidate him...although it seems like he'd be intimidated by a Girl Scout knocking on his door to sell him some cookies. But if you like to tell him what a tool he his, have at it.

Someone Give this Man a Megaphone

And point it at Charlie Gibson's ear.

This is a great editorial by Orson Scott Card aimed at the average American journalist. He's an anti-gun democrat, but he's on my side, because he's for truth in the media.

And you might want to say Amen really loud after you're done reading, like I did after listening to Rush read it on the radio.

An excerpt:

If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth -- even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.

Because that's what honorable people do. Honest people tell the truth even when they don't like the probable consequences. That's what honesty means. That's how trust is earned.

It's pretty long, but you're going to read it because I said so. And I don't want to hear any whining. This is your education I'm talking about.

Who is going to vote for Barack Obama?

I received the following email from a friend who was defending his choice of Barack Obama for president. Now let me preface this by saying that my friend is intelligent and successful.

I'll let his words stand without criticism or analysis. It was in response to this column by Charles Krauthammer:

same exact case could have been made against JFK too or did his spoon-sped senate seat in MA fill out his resume?

No offense, and I'm likely to start the political "war of words" with (name redacted) here but this article is BS. Obama is an extremely close colleague of Dick Luger the ranking REPUBLICAN IL Senator who has helped mentor him. I don't think it would have been "Good for Dick" to speak at the Dem Convention....so he didn't. Clintons have their own agenda and puleeze, it's a McCain fundraising joke how obvious it is that she'd love to see Obama lose. Her help is minimal. Did the repubs expect Obama to pull out a whole bunch of raving christian evangelists or people from the ghetto to talk about Obama's community service?

Obama worked as a community activist before being elected to the IL state senate (no small feat). He came from nowhere to win the ILLINOIS SENATE seat and that alone is huge. Obama wrote two best selling books. He ain't no "mayor" of a 5,000 person town nor "governor" of a 500,000 person state trying to get a free ride to the presidency from a dying old man. He's someone who has done a lot already...and is young and has sound judgment and speaks out and is politically savy. He's the best chance we got....

Sorry Repubs. Clock is ticking it's 11:59. gig is up at midnight.

Mark Foley to Barack Obama: lol, i think i'm endorsing you

Doubleplusundead has the TM transcript...

You Know, I Mean

I have a nervous giggle. It's a habit I'm working to break. But you know, I mean, there are some things that drive me crazy when people talk, you know? And maybe I do it too, you know? But I mean this is a transcript of a conversation between Greta Van Susteren and Cindy McCain, you know? I thought one was a big time journalist and the other a business mogul. I mean shouldn't they speak with a bit more confidence? I mean, do we all have ADD now?

MCCAIN: It's been fun, yes. It's -- you know, there are days, you know, obviously, where things are not so much fun. But you know, it's an amazing -- we're 15 days out. It's been amazing. Here we are, you know, possibly the next president and first lady of the United States. I mean, it's -- this has been a remarkable experience and something that I still, you know, occasionally have to pinch myself to realize that we're actually doing this. It's wonderful.

VAN SUSTEREN: Is there anything that's been a stunner to you in terms of going out and talking across the country (INAUDIBLE) you felt like, you know, you had no idea or, This is better or worse than I thought? Anything stun you?

MCCAIN: You know what has really stunned me is the -- quite honestly, is the kind of viciousness of the media on occasion. In 2000 -- there certainly's always been, you know, differences, and the -- you know, the things that occur. But this has taken on a different tenor. And I don't know why and what's caused that, and I'm sorry for it because I think it turns a lot of young people off.



Great way to be assertive and hard-hitting, ladies-you know?

Happy Birthday Michelle Malkin

Hard to believe she's 38 today:



And a Happy 58th to my favorite rocker, Tom Petty. A tribute to both:

Host Josh Brolin brings Saturday Night Live its highest overnight ratings in 14 years

Or maybe it was the appearance of Alec Baldwin:

Last night's telecast, hosted by Josh Brolin and featuring musical guest Adele, averaged a 10.7 rating and 24 share in 56 metered markets, according to Nielsen Media Research. That's the highest overnight 'SNL' average since a 1994 episode that was hosted by Nancy Kerrigan and featured musical guest Aretha Franklin.

Saturday's program also included appearances by Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg, Oliver Stone and -- once again reprising her role as Palin -- Tina Fey.


Wow. What a star-studded line-up! I regret not staying up late to see that...and I understand there was also appearances by a donkey, a llama and a moose.

Of course Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin took advantage of the brilliant casting by the SNL crew to get her face on TV again:



Now I am looking for some of the far more hilarious SNL skits that don't involve Palin, but for some reason all I can find is this clip of sourpuss Palin who would not even do the rap that SNL wrote for her:



(If this is the first time you have seen these videos...SHEESH. What are you doing reading my blog first? Loser.)

Wuzzadem lives!

Thanks to the dimwits in Buffalo who can't figure out how to keep the lights on, I'm not watching my Chargers (Hey Buffalo...you suck. Your weather sucks, your city sucks, your women...you get the idea).

So I'm spending the down time crusing some blogs I haven't visited in a while. Lo and behold...one of my favorite blogs of all time, Wuzzadem, is back:



It seems like it's mostly Mrs. Wuzzadem pulling the weight, but it's just nice to have them back.

Hey Buffalo...the power is back on...and you still suck.

Update: Power is off again in Buffalo. When the power goes out here in California, at least it's usually because our state is burning down or shaking.

Why is the power out in Buffalo? Balloons:

The electricity had gone out at the stadium about a half-hour before the game after three helium balloons became entangled in power lines across the street from the facility.


How long will it take the overpaid drooling idiots in charge of keeping the lights on in Western New York to get this fixed?

Gratuitous 70's Post

A fond memory.

The Summer of '79, Mission Beach, and an AM transistor radio. And I had great hair:



The 45RPM version is here.

Here they are!

Joe the Plumber T-shirts.

Today's outrage...

...comes from Michelle Malkin:

Last week, I noted the public school propaganda war on traditional marriage — in the form of a first-grader field trip to a wedding of two lesbian teachers opposed to Proposition 8. That’s the ballot measure to protect marriage.

CTA, the far Left teachers’ union in California, has now donated $1 million to defeat the proposition.


That's ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

Follow me on this. My tax dollars pay for public teachers salaries (yes, I need to pay for public education even though I don't have any children). The California Teachers Association charges union dues against a teacher's salary...whether the teachers like it or not.

Now those union dues are being used to support gay marriage.

Doesn't that mean I just financially supported gay marriage?

And aren't union dues supposed to benefit TEACHERS? How does blowing ONE MILLION DOLLARS on a special interest campaign benefit teachers? How does it help children?

How many books could ONE MILLION DOLLARS purchase? Yeah, I know...we're supposed to use more of MY tax money for that, but if the CTA really cared about kids couldn't they find a better use for that money?

Maybe some playground equipment? Art supplies? Heck...just hire 20 more teachers!

Remember this when you see another anti-Prop 8 commercial on TV. They don't want to indoctrinate your children...

No they don't.

Obama's tax plan is BULLSHIT!

It's hard to believe that Warren Buffet is advising Barack Obama. Of course Buffet really isn't a businessman...he's an investor. And he's damn smart enough to find a way to make money under Obama's plan, where other investors might lose money.

Thanks to Howie at the Jawa Report...he's been finding some damn good stuff lately:



So Charlie Gibson CAN ask tough questions of liberals. Didja see how Obama completely ignored the data on capital gains taxes?

Another thing...and this is common sense. When Obama raises taxes on small businesses, who do you think is going to bear the brunt of that? If a small business owner is thinking of hiring another employee, but his taxes are higher, will that small business owner:

a) Hire that employee at full wage and eat the tax increase?

b) Hire that employee at a reduced wage to cover for the increase in taxes?

c) Not hire that employee at all because the increased tax eats up any potential increase in revenue that employee might create? (see law of diminishing returns)

d) Pass on the cost of the higher tax to consumers?

Which of these options is good for the economy, Barry?

It Should be Caged

WomanofAbomination has something to say about mentally ill children, and the animal behavior of the adults they are supposed to trust. But I warn you, if you don't get angry biting satire, don't even follow the link.

Where can a child or a mother go when mental illness is such a stigma that it elicits comments like those that follow the article? When many people don't even seem to believe that mental illness exists? Or that it is the result of bad parenting or an extreme flaw in character and believe that you should be caged for it?

Apparently people are having trouble turning to their pastors too.

How big a freakin' snob is Barack Obama?

This big:



All you plumbers who work you asses off (hey, and thanks for showing them to us)...remember that Barack Obama just dissed you. If you decide to open up a plumbing business and actually...you know...be successful, stop when your company makes $249,999...or Barack is coming for that next dollar.

And every one after that.

How can anyone vote for this dick?

Joe the Plumber

Getting down to business and cutting through the shit.




I bet there will be T-Shirts. (No, Cranky. You don't have to make me a T-Shirt.)

He'll be a write-in for sure. That may mess up the conservative vote.

Al Gore...where ARE you?

From the Drudge Report...it's freakin' COLD!:

Oregon:

Cold temperatures set several new record lows this weekend, including a low of 22 Saturday in downtown Pendleton that broke a 118 year-old record of 24.

Record lows started falling Thursday with a new low of 20 for Meacham, four degrees cooler than the previous record from 2006, according to information from the Web site for the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Pendleton.

Heppner and Long Creek then set new low temperatures Friday. Heppner hit 29, the coldest that date has seen since 1960 when it was 30; and Long Creek was 21, besting the 1987 record by four degrees.

Saturday set multiple new lows, including the record 22 in downtown Pendleton. John Day dropped to 21, breaking the 1990 record of 23; Meacham's 15 broke the previous low of 20 from 2002; and Mitchell set a record with 21, five degrees cooler than the 2002 record.

Additionally, the top of Airport Hill in Pendleton set a new low of 25; the previous record was 33. And the agricultural experimental station north of Pendleton recorded a low of 18, five degrees cooler than the previous record from 1990.

The cold continued to set records Sunday. Meacham, for the third time in four days, set a record with a low of 15, one degree cooler than the 2002 record. Long Creek and Mitchell again set new records as well Long Creek's low of 21 broke with 1969 record of 25, and Mitchell's 21 broke the 1949 record of 24.

The top of Airport Hill in Pendleton also set another record with 24; the previous record was 28 from 2002. And downtown Pendleton's 21 chilled past the previous record of 25 from 1931.

Also Sunday, two-miles north of Hermiston cooled to 18, breaking the 1953 record of 20.


California:

Temperatures dropped to 31 degrees in the Ukiah Valley on Saturday night and early Sunday morning, the coldest Oct. 12 morning since record keeping began in Ukiah in 1893, said Troy Nicolini, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Eureka. The previous record was 34 degrees in 1916.

Farmers in Redwood Valley and other cooler regions in Mendocino County reported temperatures as low as 27 degrees.


Alaska:

Two hundred years of glacial shrinkage in Alaska, and then came the winter and summer of 2007-2008.

Unusually large amounts of winter snow were followed by unusually chill temperatures in June, July and August.

Never before in the history of a research project dating back to 1946 had the Juneau Icefield witnessed the kind of snow buildup that came this year. It was similar on a lot of other glaciers too.

Too Stupid to Vote?

From John Stossel, this goes a long way to explaining the Barack Obama phenomenon:



The guys who thought there were 51 or 52 states? Who do you think they are voting for?:

A San Francisco Field Trip (Tolerance update...bumped)

Your California tax dollars at work:

A group of San Francisco first-graders took an unusual field trip to City Hall on Friday to toss rose petals on their just-married lesbian teacher - putting the public school children at the center of a fierce election battle over the fate of same-sex marriage.

The 18 Creative Arts Charter School students took a Muni bus and walked a block at noon to toss rose petals and blow bubbles on their just-married teacher Erin Carder and her wife Kerri McCoy, giggling and squealing as they mobbed their teacher with hugs.

Mayor Gavin Newsom, a friend of a friend, officiated.

Opponents of Proposition 8 (the California Marriage Protection Act...I'll not use the redefinition mandated by our libtard AG Jerry Brown), have maintained that our children will NOT be indoctrinated by the homosexual agenda. Oh yeah?:



"She's such a dedicated teacher," said the school's interim director Liz Jaroslow.

"It really is what we call a teachable moment," Jaroflow said, noting the historic significance of same-sex marriage and related civil rights issues.


Remember, your children will NOT be indoctrinated by our schools:


Two first graders witness a "teachable moment"


The Creative Arts Charter School is a public school...paid for by California tax dollars.

Update: Opponents of Prop. 8 call supporters "intolerant".

Uh huh.

We are the intolerant ones?

The Barack Obama "National" Anthem

Courtesy of Glenn Beck:

Why Do I Watch This Stuff?

Might as well have been marching down the street with yellow star of David armbands on the streets of Berlin circa 1938. Am I exaggerating? Maybe. But these "liberal progressives" should take a good hard look at themselves. Aren't they into that? Self discovery? Or does that kind of deep introspection stop when they see that seething, spitting, finger-flipping, obscenity-spewing animal in the mirror?

I give you The Angry Mob for Peace. Forgive my sacrilege, but you may want to say your Holy Orwells.

Tired of Politics

and reading about freebirthing (sheesh) which I may write about on Tuesday. So I've turned to music again. If you would like to join in, just drop me a line and I'll post your videos.

Are you making your mortgage payments?

You are?

Are you some kind of freakin' moron?:

If you are a mortgage holder who is either struggling with crushing payments, bitter for having overpaid for your home during the bubble, or who has extravagantly refinanced when prices were rising, the government's landmark $700 billion bailout package has an important message for you: stop making your mortgage payments . . . immediately. Furthermore, if you believe that with some planning and sacrifice you may be able to meet your mortgage obligations, the government's message is clear: relax, don't bother.



Comic brilliance by Michael Ramirez


When a financial institution holds a mortgage, homeowners must live with the fear of foreclosure. Private institutions only have obligations to shareholders. In the case of a defaulting borrower, they will look to recover as much of their principal as possible. If foreclosure is their best option, they will take it in a heartbeat.

The government has no such obligations. Its only goal is to keep voters happy. After supposedly bailing out the fat cats on Wall Street, no politician wants to be accused of evicting struggling families. Once you understand this, all of your anxiety should melt away. Why pay your mortgage if foreclosure is off the table, and if you know that lower payments, and possibly a reduced loan amount, would result? A tarnished a credit rating is a small price to pay for such a benefit.

If your mortgage does become the property of Uncle Sam, the growingly popular impulse to “just walk away” should be replaced by “just stay and stop paying.” No one will throw you out. After a few months, or years, of living payment free, you will get a call from a motivated government agent eager to adjust your loan into something affordable.

To bolster your bargaining position it will help to be able to claim poverty. As a result, if you have any savings, spend it soon, before they call. Buy a bigger TV, a new wardrobe, or better yet, take a vacation. After the hardship of spending all of your refi cash, you probably deserve it. If you have any guilt just remember, Washington argues that consumer spending is the best way to stimulate the economy. Living beyond your means is a patriotic duty.

Lighten up, Michele....

My Co-blogger is letting this financial crisis get to her methinks. Don't worry, Michele...can't you see this crisis is FUNNY?:



It's funny, I say. And you won't believe who REALLY is to blame for it all...:

Markets in turmoil. 401(k) plans evaporating overnight. Huge financial institutions declaring bankruptcy. A black abyss of oblivion engulfing America, as ragged cannibal armies of hollow-eyed MBAs stagger down Wall Street, feasting on the bloated, rotting corpses of CNBC hosts in a desperate attempt to survive one more day. American are asking: how did we get here? The answer may surprise you. A growing consensus of economists now believe the current global financial Armageddon can be traced directly to Jim Treacher's out-of-control pornography debt, and its principle victim, me....

On September 26, I ran into internet blogging person Jim Treacher in the browsing stacks of Adult World Supercenter at Exit 303. After some some idle chitchat and shop talk, Mr. Treacher requested a loan for the purchase of a pornographic DVD, explaining that he was temporarily short of cash and had various biological-related needs. At various times in my life I have been pornless, so I was naturally sympathetic to his plight. I inquired as to the property he was interested in, and he enthusiastically showed me the 3-DVD box set of the classic 1992 series "Where the Boys Aren't," on special for $29.99.

In retrospect, I suppose I could have exercised more due diligence in considering Mr. Treacher's loan request. Perhaps he didn't have the most spotless credit history or employment record, but he seemed truly sincere. He was willing to put 1/3 of his own money down and sign title to the DVDs as security. Also, as an avid internet researcher I knew that the value of these DVDs has steadily increased, thanks to a growing community of vintage 90's porn collectors in Japan and Finland. Even if Mr. Treacher defaulted, what could possibly go wrong? After writing out a loan contract specifying my customary interest rate of 8.5% per hour, I handed him a crisp $20 bill and we shook hands on the deal. Luckily, I always carry a bottle of Purell.


Iowahawk continues to elaborate on how his shaky lending practices have thrown our entire country into chaos here.

I Guess I'm Not Alone

Some people who use bigger words than me seem to agree that we are headed in a scary direction.

Global Warming causes earliest snowfall ever in Boise, Idaho

Is there any other explanation for this?:

Big snow flakes fell early Friday evening, turning Downtown Boise into a giant snow globe for people on their way home from work....

This is the earliest measurable snowfall in Boise since recordkeeping began in 1898, according to the National Weather Service. At 10 p.m., the Weather Service said 1.7 inches of snow had fallen.

The previous earliest recorded snowfall was Oct. 12, 1969, when a little more than an inch fell.


Right now global warming just forced me to put on a sweatshirt...we all know how brutal SoCal autumns can be.

Th Worst President Of The United States Of America Speaks... Again... Proving, Once Again...


...He's the worst President (and ex-President) of the United States.

"I think it's because of the atrocious economic policies of the Bush administration," said the 84-year-old Democrat, who served in the White House from 1977-1981 during a period of high inflation and energy crisis.

Huh?! I seem to recall, as a kid between the age of 8 - 12 that there was something called "The Misery Index" that was proliferated during your illustrious tenure at 1600 Pennsy Ave. It was the only time in my life where I remember living week-to-week because it was the only time in my life that my father was out of work. During Carter's entire Presidency there was double-digit inflation, interest rates, and yes, the "Misery Index" at its best (best!) was 20.5%. Stagflation! It was Jimmy Carter that put the term "malaise" into the draw of the American lexicon. It was Jimmy Carter that tried tirelessly to pull our country out of the abyss of futility by blaming the American People. Words of infamy spilled from the marble-mouthed Peanut Farmer from Plains, GA like “I think it’s inevitable that there will be a lower standard of living than what everybody had always anticipated; The only trend is downward. But it’s impossible to get people to face up to this.” It was you, President Carter that emphatically stated that our nation has torecognize its own limits to growth. Oh, really?! I'd say that the American People faced it just fine by throwing your ass out of office in a landslide victory for your opponent that had never been seen before.

President Carter, you sir, are the last f*&$%! person to be pointing the finger and assigning the blame for our nation's current economic foibles to anyone, let alone, our current President. You sir, are a disgrace. Your opinion in these matters is irrellevant.

"We would never have a photo like this of Joe Biden"


And we are eternally grateful. I do like to sleep at night.

I just don't get my feathers ruffled over this stuff. Is making a point about a woman's sexual attractiveness, and in the case of this photo, her sexual power, somehow demeaning?

When Rolling Stone enhanced Al Gore's virility, that was intended to be a positive thing. What's the diff?

So we'll have a trail of drool to follow to the voting booth this time. I call that helpful.

Barack Obama IS the Messiah!

Wow. And I thought this whole "Obamessiah" thing was just political snarkiness.

The This Goes to 11 Movie Review: The Third Jihad

Tonight I attended a screening of Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser's expose on radical Islam, The Third Jihad.

There wasn't a lot of new news here...to me. I've read Mark Steyn's America Alone, Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel, several books by Robert Spencer (and his blog Jihad Watch), and I'm a frequent visitor to the MEMRI website. I had seen many of the videos and interviews before, but there was one segment that frightened me, not because I am not aware of Iran's nuclear threat, but because of the reminder that if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon, they WILL use it:



Bernard Lewis:

During the Cold War both sides, the United States and the Soviet Union, had nuclear weapons but they never used them because of what we knew as M.A.D....Mutual Assured Destruction. Each side knew that if they used a nuclear weapon the other would respond in kind and everybody would be destroyed.

M.A.D. won't work with Ahmadinejad because Mutual Assured Destruction for one of his mindset is not a deterrent...it's an incentive.


The recent economic crisis has certainly had the effect of causing many Americans to take their eyes off of a more dangerous long-term threat...radical Islam. And do we really want a President who believes this?:



The DVD can be purchased here. It's a good investment for those uncertain of the true threat of Jihad, and the film does an excellent job of summing up ALL of the ways the West is being threatened by radical Islam.

The original trailer:

Somebody Splash Some Water on Me

Because I'm all fired up, and I'm about to go hunting for the chemical suits, gas masks, and Mountain House freeze dried food, and move my family up to the mountains with my grizzly paw-in-law.

I've already gotten into a pretty intense email discussion with a conservative friend and her left-wing brother and it's not even 8:30 am. We were talking about Ayers, G. Gordon Liddy, fascism, the war.... Then I read this.

The Bush administration is considering taking ownership stakes in certain U.S. banks as an option for dealing with a severe global credit crisis.

An administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because no decision has been made, said the $700 billion rescue package passed by Congress last week allows the Treasury Department to inject fresh capital into financial institutions and get ownership shares in return.


That's when I lost it. I was no longer talking. I was going off.

Here's my email.

Don't trust nobody, girl.

When the government controls the engines of production, what kind of government is it? When your patriotism is questioned because you don't pay enough in taxes (you don't redistribute your wealth), what kind of government do you have? When they can mandate how you school your children, whether you can protect your family with a firearm, storm into your house without knocking, what kind of government do you think of? If they can go against the people's wishes and mess with the interest rates driving us into a depression, and subsequently bail us out, whose power is increased? What kind of government can continue to have any kind of power with a with a 6% approval rating? I have an answer. A government not for the people and by the people, that's not operating under the will of its people is not a fascist one, it's a tyrannical one.

It's not Bush or Cheney or Obama or Pelosi....it's all of them. The best we can do is vote for the politician who wears a condom when he rapes us.

Or we can do what hubby says. Hit them all with a shrinking laser and put them in the Cuisinart.

(Maybe we women shouldn't think before 9am. I may have to dig up Benjamin Franklin and ask him what he thinks.)

Now I need to see if Paw in Law can put the moonshine up high before the kiddies come.

Joe Biden pulled down by his hairplugs

You know who would seriously kick Joe Biden's ass in a debate?

Ann Coulter:

If Sarah Palin had made just one of the wildly inaccurate statements smugly uttered by Sen. Joe Biden in last week's vice presidential debate, there would have been 3-inch headlines in newspapers across America. (I can almost hear Katie Couric asking me, "Which newspapers?")

For example, Biden said about Hezbollah: "When we kicked -- along with France -- we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon." Hezbollah was never kicked out of Lebanon.

He continued: "I said and Barack said, 'Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't, Hezbollah will control it.'" This is madness -- Lebanon is not a NATO country, nor had any NATO country been attacked by Lebanon.

Somebody please tell me that Biden wasn't picked for the Democrat ticket based on his knowledge of foreign policy.


The rest is here...

Yeah...the following is a cheap shot. But as a follicularly-challenged man myself, I'm entitled:

This Uncle Tom "Sell-out" is voting for McCain/Palin

Courtesy of Six Meat Buffet:




Note to libtards: Try to refute ANY of this. Go ahead. You can't.

Cranky's Palin Shirt

Sarah Palin was annoying me a bit during the debates. Mainly it was her voice. But when I read what she says, I like it very much. Especially her most recent zinger concerning Obama's relationship with Ayers.

This is not a man who sees America as you and I do - as the greatest force for good in the world. This is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country.


She just lines up her sites and shoots, don'tcha know?

So I'm wearing this excellent piece of moichendise while I watch the debates tonight. And I will pray that John McCain will channel some Sarah tonight and mop the floor with Obama.



Thanks to Nigel for telling Cranky to make this. I might remind my creative friend that it was my concept if it sells like hotcakes. I should at least get a beer out of it, right?

Pat Condell: I didn't mean to call Saudi Arabia "mentally ill"

"What I meant to say is that they are a cancerous and sexually repressed bunch of Muslim fanatics. My bad...":

Sheriff Joe Arpaio to MSM: Suck it!

Great campaign commercial by Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio:



I'd love to see the McCain/Palin ticket cut a similar commercial...

Barack Obama is just a "passing acquaintance" of a terrorist

Yeah, right:



Question: After the 1998 Connie Chung interview, why didn't Barack Obama cut all ties and publicly denounce William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn?

Instantly?

Did he have his head in the sand? Or does he believe as they do?

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:

Ayers was hardly quiet about his life and his aspirations. He wrote a book about it in 2001. Chicago Magazine did a lengthy profile of him at the time, complete with pictures of Ayers standing on an American flag thrown on the ground in an alley. Nevertheless, Obama continued to work with Ayers at the Woods Fund and work together on public events. Either Obama liked what Ayers did, or he’s the most clueless politician to have ever reached the US Senate, and neither commends itself as a recommendation for a presidential candidate.

Sarah Palin attracted considerable outrage from the media for publicly pointing out Obama’s association with Ayers and Dohrn as “palling around with terrorists”. However, she forced the media to finally start covering it, as the CNN clips show, and to put Obama on the defensive over it. As we see here, that defense looks terribly weak.


P.S. I'm a racist for even bringing this up.

Palin-Biden debate post-mortem

Last night I hung out over at Six Meat Buffet during the Palin/Biden debate. At debates end I felt that the debate had been a "draw"...or at least I didn't feel that Palin had scored her "knock-out".

I still don't think Palin hit it out of the park. There were SO many times she could have destroyed Biden on his lies.



But now that time has passed to dissect Biden's bullshit, I feel Palin did better than I though last night.

Laurie Kendrick didn't like Sarah Palin's performance. I posted this in the comments section:

My initial reaction last night was the same as yours, Laurie. (BTW, good to see you hanging out over at the Buffet…did you get enough meat?)

Someone over at Hot Air made a GREAT point…you can easily look more confident in a debate if you believe your lies.

Which was Joe Biden. Your average American does not have the time to be an expert on foreign policy…and Joe Biden certainly was passing himself off as one.

So when he said that “we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon”…most Americans and the buffoons at MSNBC, the NY Times and Newsweek…just let that pass.

Uh Joe… Hezbollah RUNS Lebanon.

And then Joe suggested NATO forces could fill the void to provide peace in the region.

Uh Joe…NATO does not have that authority

But UN forces do. And as any Israeli can tell you, they have been SUPERB at quelling Hezbollah’s terror activities along the Lebanon/Israeli border (just google “Green Helmet Guy”)

I was screaming at the TV during all of this…because he was lying (or stupid) and Sarah could have CRUSHED him on this.

But bless her Alaskan bumpkin heart…she does not as of yet have the foreign policy background that would have enabled her to jump on Biden for this.

Post Mortem…Sarah Barracuda won this debate. But only to those informed enough to see through Biden’s bullshit.

I'm Rarely Shocked

But this is shocking.

How could he have done that? How did he get there?

I don't think I'll tell my little herpetologist that there's a 7-year-old reptile serial killer on the loose in Australia. She'll have nightmares.

Nigel-I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to post this video...thanks!:

Also, to be fair...Gwen Ifill has done a fair job tonight, despite the concerns (valid) of her fairness before the debate.

I don't think Sarah hit her home run tonight...but then again...the debate is STILL going on (12 minutes after that email)...

Scandal: Why isn't Cynthia McKinney a part of the Presdential Debates?

Can you imagine the ratings?:



Ed Morrisey at Hot Air tries to debunk McKinney's claims, but look at Cynthia's eyes. She knows something!

Or maybe she is just batshit crazy.

Either way, about the only way I am going to bother watching the next Presidential Debate is if Cynthia is invited.
