I read a lot.

I usually start my day reading things like The Huffington Post, Media Matters, a couple of liberal blogs, Hot Air, CNS News, The Drudge Report, The American Thinker and then I watch some stuff on the Blaze.

Some of the stuff I remember, some of it I don't.

I also don't always remember which place I got what information, because I read so many article in so many places.

Nevertheless, I AM able to gather the principles presented in those resources and arrange them in my mind for personal analysis and interpretation.

Steven Wright (my favorite stand-up comedian) says, "Stealing an idea from one person is called plagiarism. Stealing ideas from a bunch of people is called research."

I do a lot of research.

Then I write MY conclusions on my blog.

Some of my commenters get upset with me because I don't "document" everything I write, as though failure to document somehow affects it veracity.

Of course, that is utter nonsense.

If Harry Reid said something, he said it whether or not I note the source where I first read about it.

So, I don't document everything I write about.

If you are a liberal and you don't like that...get over it.

This is my blog where I write about what interests me...period.

I don't even care whether or not you believe what I write.

I don't write anything I haven't first documented in my own mind, and that's the only mind that matters to me.

There are some special places I go to read blogs that I really love.

Geeeeez! is one of those places.  So is Important Stuff--Or Not.

The are a lot of others, so if I left you out (which I obviously did, since I only mentioned two), please forgive me.

If it is listed on my side bar, I read it almost daily.

I particularly like LR's 25 Immutable Truths About Liberals and his Talking Points.

The thing about research is that its interpretation depends on whether you approach it from a liberal or a conservative point of view.

The same set of facts might well lead to quite different conclusions from a liberal than they do from a conservative.

I'm a conservative.


1. Respect for The Constitution
2. Respect for Life
3. The Smallest Possible Government
4. Individual Responsibility

This blog is about my philosophy of government, which is a very conservative philosophy.

You are not required to agree with me (although you would be better off if you did).

I am biased toward conservatism, and make no apologies for that.

Freedom means not being controlled by the government, that being the very reason we declared our independence from Great Britain.

Government's job is not to provide things for people, but to provide the opportunity for people to pursue the things they want via the vehicles of freedom and responsibility.

So there you have it.

The next time you decide to castigate me for not "documenting" what I write, remember this: I am not your student and you are not my professor. This is not a term paper, nor is it a research paper.

This is my blog.

These are my ideas, quirky though they may or may not be.

You neither have to read it or comment on it, though you are welcome to do either or both.

Just keep it clean and relevant to the topic at hand...or else the dreaded "delete" button will be exercised.

He was pushing for his 1.9% surtax on the wealthy when Harry Reid said this:

"Millionaire job creators are like unicorns. They’re impossible to find, and they don’t exist…Only a tiny fraction of people making more than a million dollars, probably less than 1 percent, are small business owners. And only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction are traditional job creators…Most of these businesses are hedge fund managers or wealthy lawyers. They don’t do much hiring and they don’t need tax breaks."

(From Reid's December 12th speech)

A little shaky on the facts, but who cares? He is a liberal and if a liberal says it, it is true, just because the liberal said it, whether it is factual or not.

Fact: According to IRS’s Table 1.4 ‘Sources of income, adjustments, and tax size of adjusted gross income, 2009,’ there are 236,883 tax filers with incomes of a million dollars or more.

Using Reid's accounting, only 118 rich people create jobs.

There are exactly 0 unicorns in the world, so right off the bat Reid is wrong.

Nevertheless, there are 236,765 millionaires who collectively earn about a quarter trillion dollars.

According to Reid, only about 118 of them ever hire anybody.

They manage to do this without hiring anyone. These millionaires do their own typing, selling, drafting. public relations, building, and manufacturing. Not one of them needs employees!

Not only that, but they got to be millionaires by "winning life's lottery!"

Hard work, risk taking, paying others to sell their products, etc., had nothing to do with it...right?

They are simply leeches on society, draining us of our ability to give OWSers what they think they are entitled to.

Mr. Reid (and your liberal cohorts), let me inform you, if only from pure linear logic, that is impossible!

They could not have become millionaires in a vacuum. They became millionaires by earning their way, and by paying others to help them get there.

The truth is the opposite of what Reid said. Only about 118 of them did NOT earn their way there.

It seems that truth from a liberal is like a unicorn. It does not exist.

Maybe you can suggest some other differences between "reality" and the "culture."

The following portion of the interveiw on CBS was conveniently left out.

Do you wonder why?

In case you missed it, here's another take on it:

Some people would call this arrogance.

I call it

"Christ" is the English term for the Greek Χριστός (Khristós) meaning "the anointed one". It is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ), usually transliterated Messiah.

"mas" is from the word "Mass" as in feast or celebration.

Therefore, "Christmas" is a celebration (and/or feast) of the Messiah's birth.

That's what Christmas is about. It is not about reindeer (red-nosed or not), Santa Claus, getting presents or any secular or other "inclusive" holiday.

Now we learn that the official Christmas tree at the White House has no reference to Christmas or Christ or Jesus or the Nativity.

It does, however, pay homage to President BO (the child president).

It has an ornament in his honor.

And liberals thought we were insulting him by referring to him as The One.

He is not insulted by that. He really thinks he IS The One.

I just find it interesting that a holiday (holy-day...get it?) that has its meaning right in its name is so ignored by our government.

It has not been so in the past.

But with "Hope and Change," Christmas will be changed, and when it is, all hope is gone.

Merry Christmas, everybody.

(And if you don't believe "Merry Christmas" is politically correct, then go ahead...have a lousy Christmas).

Kim Jung-Il is dead.

His death was announced in an emotional statement read out on national television.

The announcer, wearing black, said he had died on Saturday of physical and mental over-work.

The BBC’s Lucy Williamson in Seoul says his death will cause huge shock waves across North Korea.

To commemorate his life, and to show solidarity over his death, North Korea launched a test of a missile designed to carry nuclear weapons.

I know, his death saddens you deeply, but take heart. The pain of his passing will pass.

This wonderful world leader, charismatic, creative, honest, statuesque, kind, altruistic, honored and loved leader will be missed.

Yeah. I once had a wart on my had. It's gone, now. It is missed in the same way KJI is going to be missed.

To be sure, he had his supporters in the U.S.

Left wing numb-skulls, communist sympathizers along with their hero-leader, President BO (the child president) will all mourn his passing.

Now the question is: Who will replace him?

Some say it will be (or already is) Kim Jung-un, his young son.

That should give you renewed confidence in the role of North Korea in world events.

You remember those troops we just brought back from Iraq?

My advice would be to make sure they are still at the ready.

A quote from The Blaze via a Gallup poll:

"...a plurality of Democrats believe that big government is more threatening than big business."

Here's the chart of the results of the poll:

So what's with that stupid claim by OWS that they somehow represent 99% of the people?

"Even after the Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints, I have noticed a large number of people, implying with bad jokes, that Cajuns aren't smart. I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment. Anybody who would build a city 5 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with Democrats who can't swim is a genius".

On of the chants heard over and over in this video is: "This is what democracy looks like."

That's right.

And that's why we don't live in a democracy.

Mob rule is the ultimate result of EVERY democracy and that's a BAD thing.

We live in a constitutional republic.

That's the way it was designed and that's the only way it will survive.

Now liberals, don't go off commenting on the right or wrong of OWS, try to stay focused on the actual point of the post: Democracy is a BAD way to run a country and that's why in 1776 we chose NOT to establish one.

Instead, we live in, as Ben Franklin said, "...a republic, if we can keep it."

So, liberals, stop this nonsense of referring to the USA as a democracy. We're not one, never have been, should not be one now and must never become one.

A constitutional republic retains some aspects of a democracy, but keeps it within the framework of representativeness, constitutionalism and the appropriate application of law.

As has happened with OWS, democracy boils down to a complete waste of time and resources, hurts more people than it helps and ultimately leads to total anarchy.

God help us retain and maintain our republic.

In the coming New Year (2012) both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.

This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog .

President BO (the child president) is so inept, so brain-dead, so amateurish that he can't even get the holidays right.

As our friend over at The Malcontent says, "It Seems As If Muslims Just Don't Understand How To Do Jewish Holidays Right!"

President BO (the child president) decided to show how supportive he is of Israel (despite all of his actions to the contrary) by "celebrating" the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

Only he did it two weeks early (it starts on December 20).

And he did it wrong, by lighting all of the candles on the Menorah at once, instead of one each day as the festival dictates.

He also misconstrued the basic significance of the celebration by proclaiming in some kind of misguided, but meaningful sounding phrase that the Hanukkah story was about "right over might, faith over doubt."

Interested in knowing what it's really all about? Check here.

But how would a follower of Jeremiah Wright know any better?

Friday, December 9, 2011


Yesterday I wrote what seemed to the brain dead readers among you to be just a bunch of personal stuff, some of which was true and some of which was not-so-true or just plain false.

One of those brain dead readers even wrote a comment about how disinterested he was in my personal life and whether or not any of those events really happened.

Before I get to deep into the "hidden" meaning(s) of it all, let me expose my truths and my lies.

Paragraph one was 100% true. So were paragraphs two and most of three. I have never hunted with bow and arrow.

Paragraph four was mostly true, except that I have never walked in or backpacked in the Withlacoochee Forrest.

I HAVE always love alligators and have fished for alligators just as described.

The entire story of me saving a man from a threatening alligator was false (Good job, Ducky, on seeing through that one).

The picture IS of me holding a live alligator, but not the one I did not save the man from. It was taken at a meeting featuring the head of a local animal advocate group. Everybody there got to hold the gator and have his/her picture taken.

So, what's this all about, anyway?

As far as I know, not a single one of my regular readers or commenters actually knows me or anything about me other than what they've read in my blog(s).

So, there would be know way for anyone to actually know what is true and what is not true about what I wrote.

The picture seemed to some to add credibility to the gist of the "save the man" story,  or at least to something to do with alligators, but it was really not related to anything else in the post (unless you count my love for alligators).

The true parts of the post were true, even though there is no documentation to verify them. The false parts were false, even though there is no documentation to disprove them.

What happened, happened and what did not happen did not happen, no matter what you may believe or disbelieve about either case.

That which seems to verify a "fact" in one person's mind, is not convincing to another person, and vice-versa.

Most liberals are not the least bit interested in documentation provided by a conservative, because in their minds, all documentation offered by a conservative is tainted by some clandestine agenda.

Similarly, most conservatives do not trust the "documentation" offered by a liberal because in their minds, all documentation offered by a liberal is tainted by some liberal agenda.

So we are faced with a delima: How do we sift through the agendas to arrive at the truth?

Judge Judy often says, "If it doesn't make sense, it isn't true."

Only what "makes sense" to one person, does not make sense to another.

To begin with, "truth" is what actually happened and is not dependent on whatever "spin" one group or another puts on the event in question.

Sometimes there are facts presented that do not lead to the truth of what actually went on.

For example, suppose two people witness an automobile accident.

We all are aware that there are likely to be at least two versions of what happened, neither of which is likely to be entirely true.

"The driver of the Buick ran his car into the side of the Honda" might be factual, but it may not be the whole truth.

It is possible that the driver of the Buick had a seizure and had no control of his vehicle at the time of the crash.

It is also possible that the Honda driver was on his/her cell phone and drove out in front of the oncoming Buick.

There are a myriad of other possibilities.

In the end, investigators will arrive at the most likely cause of the collision, and someone will be charged with causing it.

When we post on a blog, we are usually approaching whatever subject we're addressing from a particular point of view. On a political blog, that point of view will be from some depth of liberalism or conservatism.

If I, for instance, post pictures of OWSers leaving a mess, or making a mess, or engaging in a fight or running around naked, the pictures might or might not be evidence that the whole "movement" is made up of people who would approve of such a thing.

A trip around the blogosphere or over to Google might bring up a few hundred photographs supporting the view that they all think like that.

The preponderance of the evidence  might lead one to believe that all OWSers are like that, which may or may not be the case.

On the other hand, if hundreds of pictures of Tea Party events do not show any depictions of people behaving in those same behaviors, one might conclude that no Tea Party members ever do such things.

So how do we arrive at the truth?

One way would be to examine the avowed motives of the members of each group and determine which set of motives might lead to which form of behavior.

Another could be to interview a representative sample from each group and hear what they, themselves, have to say about what they are doing and why.

Ultimately, it is up to the reader to decide what seems to make sense and is therefore closer to the truth.

The evidence seems to me to show that Tea Partiers are cleaner, more organized, more coherent, more polite and more consistent in their stated reason for being than OWSers.

That is a conclusion drawn by me based on "evidence" presented.

For someone else to opine that Tea Partiers are just like OWSers would seem to fly in the face of the "evidence."

Don't miss the point here. The point is not whether one group acts one way and the other group acts another way.

The point is that arriving at truth is the point.

There is no such thing as "your truth" vs "my truth."

Truth, truth!

True or false: There is no evidence that Earth's atmosphere is behaving any differently today than it has over the eons of its existence.

True or false: There were periods of global warming and global cooling long before the industrial revolution began "spewing pollutants" into the atmosphere.

Newsflash: Neither you, I or any living climatologist was there, so what we have to go on is the interpretation of "evidence" from ice core samples and ground core samples, all of which demonstrate periods of both warming and cooling.

Now, as to man's causation of any current changes in climate, that is conclusion drawn from the facts presented.

We can each draw our own set of conclusions from the data, but if we draw different conclusions,  we cannot both be right.

The upshot of it all is this: I write posts on my blog that represent my conclusions from things I have read and watched.

Whether I list all of my documentation or not, the purpose of my blog is not to convince you of how smart I am or how dumb you are. The purpose of my blog is to express what I think is the logical conclusion to be drawn from what I have read and watched.

In fact, if I were to present ALL of my documentation, you would not even read it, because the post would be even longer than this one.

Since liberals typically have the attention span of a 2 year old, and are mostly educated in the progressive leaning government school system, they would not spend the time required to read it any way.

So I shall go on writing what I write, without regard to whether you approve of what I write, are convinced by what I write, like what I write or believe what I write.

Out of the kindness of my heart, I shall afford you the right to read my posts, comment on my posts or completely ignore my posts.

Of this I am certain: There are far more people who will NOT read my posts than will.

And that's OK.

I'll just go back to loving my gators and enjoying my own writing.

I've always been an outdoors man (until osteoarthritis grabbed me by the hip and knee).

In my youth, I played football, first in high school and then in back yard games and pick-up games.

Tennis and raquet ball were obsessions of mine, as was fishing and hunting with bow and arrows.

During my Youth Director years, I taught backpacking, riflery, canoeing, and other outdoor sports. I have led kids backpacking along the entire length of the Florida Trail (though not all at once), including the Ocala National Forrest and the Withlacoochie National Forrest.

But my greatest love was alligators.

I used to "fish" for alligators.

"How do you do that?" you ask.

Well, thank you for asking.

You mess around in the Florida Everglades until you find a small island with a bunch of gators on it, each competing with the others for his place in the sun.

Then you cast a plug near the island.

The gators, thinking it might be food, race each other to the plug. One of them gets there first and grabs it to keep the others from getting his morsel.

Now a gator's mouth is too big and too tough to be hooked by a mere fishing plug, but he will hold on to it for several minutes, death-rolling and thrashing around until he decides that it is not good to eat and lets it go...if he is lucky enough not to get it caught between his teeth.

It's great fun, doesn't hurt the gator (unless you count his being embarrassed at thinking it was good to eat), and gave me and my fishing buddy a good work out.

One day I was driving along Fla. St. Rd 82 headed for Immokalee. I saw a man walking on the side of the road. Behind him, sneaking up on him stealthily was this alligator, surely wanting to eat him for dinner.

I quickly lept from my car, fell on the gator's back, pressed his snout to the ground, whipped out my black tape, which I always carried with me, and taped his mouth shut, thus saving the man's life, for which he thanked me.

Above is the picture of me holding my captured gator.

Some of the above is true, some of it is just made up.

I'll leave it to you to figure out which parts are true and which parts are not.

The all-wise Ducky and XO should have no trouble at all separating truth from fiction.

The United states of America has the largest available natural gas, oil and coal resources combined in the entire world.

Yeah, Joe, you just keep making up those absurd things and don't bother to document them.'s the documentation: Institute for Energy Research.

I've been saying it for years, and have been royally castigated by very stupid liberals every time I've said it.

And guess what! Even with documentation from IER, a not-for-proft organization that conducts intensive research and analysis on the functions, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets, you liberals will still say I'm nuts and the source is not dependable.

That won't make it true, but you will say it anyway.

The United States has 1.4 trillion barrels of recoverable reserves of oil — or more than the entire world has used in 150 years. That’s enough to fuel the United States for the next 250 years. Add natural gas and coal resources to that and we’re good to go for all the foreseeable future. (Source)

Why, then, are we so dependent on foreign oil and other energy sources?

Well, whether deliberately or otherwise, we have a backward energy policy, based far more on how to get elected than on how to solve our energy problems.

President BO (the child president) told us that solving our energy problem is the first thing on his mind when he wakes up in the morning (as are: our children's education; the economy; creating new jobs and getting re-elected...a really big bunch of first things to think about).

So, what in the world is WRONG with him?

Why can't he see that going after those resources in our very own country would: solve our energy needs within 5 years; create tens of thousands of good paying jobs; increase our respect in the world; go a really long way toward reducing our national debt, reducing our budget deficit and reducing the price of gas at the pump...thus ADDING to the economy?

Either he is stupid, misinformed or deliberately refusing to move toward the solution.

Either way, it is sad.

I would ask: Why not use the energy resources we have to hold us until we can develop real, viable alternatives...something other than those horridly ugly windmill fields (that will kill countless thousands of birds, by the way and which no lawmaker wants in his back yard), 

or those delicate, equally ugly fields of solar panels, just waiting for the next good hurricane and so utterly devastating to the environment?

Come on people!

We don't have the alternatives yet!


We just plain and simple don't have them!

For instance, today's crop of battery operated cars are an absolute joke!

They will come!

They WILL!

( I personally think the solution is the use of hydrogen for fuel, which exhausts only water when it is used in vehicles.)

But they are not here yet! And if we chose to suffer until they get here, we will never have them!

For the future of the country's sake, and for the sake of our children and grandchildren, let's get this economy back on track by making use of the abundant resources of natural gas, oil and coal that we have!

In Alabama, an OWS member suffered a grande mal seizure while screaming opposition to Glenn Beck even being allowed to live, let alone sign books.

You would think dozens, or at least a few OWSers would have come to his aid.

Fact is, one OWS lady helped keep his head from crashing on the sidewalk, but not one other OWSer stepped up to help...not one.

You know who DID help?

Glenn Beck's entourage.

They prevented the fellow from further injury, as is common with those who suffer seizures, until EMS got there and took him to a local hospital.

After treatment at the hospital, the man DEMANDED that the hospital take him back to the protest site...something I don't think hospitals are designed to do.

Now I ask, which ones of these people were this man's neighbors, the OWSers who stood around and did nothing, or the members of the hated conservative group against whom they were railing?

If you don't know the answer, you are a useless nincompoop.

Do you find it remotely interesting that the MSM delved deeply into the "lack of Black American" presence at the Tea Party events because that was very important and significant, while an even smaller percentage of black participants at OWS events is not newsworthy?

When the Tea Party "ignores" Black Americans it is called racism.

When OWS ignores Black Americans, it is not racism, it is....well, what the heck is it, anyway?

African American memoirist and abuse survivor, Stacey Patton writes:

"Blacks, who make up roughly 12.6 percent of the population, make up only about 1.6 percent of OWS protesters.

"Many Blacks are turned off by OWS events because OWS protesters did nothing as long as only Blacks experienced high unemployment and economic marginalization. The American left’s deep seated and racist indifference to Black pain, in other words, permeates a protest movement the white left thinks is the most exciting American social movement in decades."

My analysis of the matter is that OWS is made up of so many whiney, lazy, somphomoric, spoiled "hippies" from well-to-do families that true social injustices are of no interest to them and they just want to gather for fun and profit.

You might disagree, and that's alright. This is America and you have a right to be wrong.

These dolts protest the very thing that allows them to protest the very thing they are protesting.

No matter how many degrees any of them have, they are all idiots.

I believe in civil disobedience.

I have taken part in it.

In 1964 I sat at a lunch counter with a group of "occupiers" who were members of a minority seeking to help overcome almost 200 years of their oppression.

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led, I marched with hundreds of those same minority members as they made their way down the streets of St. Augustine.

The protest was peaceful and all the protesters did was to sing songs like, "We Shall Overcome."

These protesters did not try to prevent anyone from carrying on their daily routines nor did they interrupt the normal flow of business.

Anyone who wanted to join them at the "all-white" lunch counter was welcomed, and although only whites were offered lunch service, no fights broke out and the place was kept clean.

At the end of the day, Dr. King had been arrested and subsequently released, the marchers had made their point, and everybody went home for a night's rest.

Spotty protests continued throughout the week, but no violence occurred, at least none that was known by us or reported by the infallible Walter Cronkite.

This was satisfying and effective protest.

Over the years, things DID get better for that minority group and today they have as much opportunity as any American to make it in life.

Examples of some who have are: former Godfather's Pizza CEO and presidential candidate, Herman Cain; Supreme Court justice, Clarence Thomas; Amsale Aberra, president & creative director, Amsale Aberra, Inc.; Robert Andrews, senior vice president, organization HR consultant, Dallas, TX; Nelvia M. Brady, Ph.D., ageless, author and columnist, president and owner of This Mother's Daughter, Inc., Chicago, IL; Jesse B. Brown, president of Krystal Investment Management, a financial advisory firm in Chicago, IL and author of the best selling book, Investing in the Dream-Wealth Building Strategies for African Americans Seeking Financial Freedom; Monique Caradine, radio talk show host, WVON 1450 AM - Chicago, IL; David E. Ellington, NetNoir, Inc., co-founder and former president and CEO,  San Francisco, CA; Debrena Jackson Gandy, author of All the Joy You Can Stand and Sacred Pampering Principles, owner: Masterminds, Seattle, WA.; Indigo D. Johnson, CEO of Careers In Transition, a training and development firm, Decatur, GA.; Terry Preston, detective, Cleveland Police Department, Cleveland, OH. and tens of thousands of others.

What this all illustrates is that progress can be made through peaceful protests, and proper civil disobedience without requiring the protesters to instigate violence, behave uncivilly, and otherwise commit mayhem.

While the Civil Rights protests DID encounter violence in some places, they were not the perpetrators of that violence. 

To be sure, there are greedy CEOs of some large corporations. There are greedy CEOs of small corporations. There are greedy protesters in OWS.

Greed is a vice common to humanity, and OWS is not going to overcome it.

Civil protest, coupled with civil disobedience is one thing.

This OWS crowd is something else altogether.

And it is disobedient without being civil.

New E-Mails Rock The Global Warming Debate

You agendized liberals talk about lies and how you love to expose them, and how the majority of lies are generated by conservatives, etc., but you keep on perpetrating them yourselves and can't even recognize them as lies.

One of the greatest lies in recent years has been the so-called "man-made" climate change (quietly changed from the prior "global warming" designation when it was found that the globe is not warming).

Here is an excerpt from an article that further exposes the scandal among "scientists" on the subject:

A new batch of 5,000 emails among scientists central to the assertion that humans are causing a global warming crisis were anonymously released to the public...

Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.

Phil Jones, a scientist working with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)wrote:

“Any work we have done in the past is done on the back of the research grants we get – and has to be well hidden...”

And on and on it goes.

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor-- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be-- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks--for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed--for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions-- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

I support "first responders," police, fire persons, EMS, etc.

Police, in general, are there to help keep the peace, with some stipulations as to the extent they can go to do so, as determined by federal and state constitutions, laws and ordinances.

But this is too far to go.

The police involved in this incident, and anybody who was involved in ordering them to do this deed, should be summarily fired.


While I totally disagree with most of what OWS stands (or in this case, sits) for, I am totally enraged at how the police handled this incident.

Bad on them.

Very bad.

You can find the links documenting each of the events there, too.

Let's see you stupid liberal/progressives make excuses for these incidents (or pretend none of them happened).

Now show us actions by the Tea Party that are comparable in behavior and number.

Oh...and then there's this:

The city of Santa Cruz put together a list of 93 complaints about behavior at Occupy Santa Cruz.
At least one incident on the county list wasn’t noted by the Sheriff’s Office: the discovery of an estimated 200 pounds of human feces near the county Veterans Memorial Building, just across the Water Street bridge from the camp.
The county called in a hazardous materials team to clean up the mess, and installed a security fence around the building, which is closed for renovations. There is no evidence that linked the excrement to the camp.

No evidence?


But there is an extraordinary coincidental proximity:

Now, who would have 200lbs of human feces on hand to dump anywhere? Maybe somebody camping with inadequate bathroom facilities.

The camp at Santa Cruz had enormous sanitary issues.

Uncivilized savages.

What would it take to cause you to lose confidence in the "movement" (pun intended)?

Which of these attributes most exemplifies the OWSers?

1. Imagination

2. Ambition

3. Skill

4. Work Ethic

5. Perseverance

Answer: None of them

They are so unimaginative that they can’t even articulate why they are “protesting,” except that they don’t like rich people.

They have no ambition to better themselves, only to tear down others.

They lack the skills needed to contribute to society because they expect society to pay for their development of those skills, and because they don’t want to have to work to get them.

Work ethic…an absolute joke.

Perseverance? Well, they certainly know how to persevere at bumming around.

All in all, they are totally unworthy of respect or attention.

GO HOME and GROW UP you leeches!

ANSWER: $0,000,000.00

Monday, November 14, 2011



So...which of the following do you consider appropriate behavior at a protest?

1.  Leaving your space filthy.

2.  Raping somebody.

3.  Destroying property.

4.  Interrupting small business from conducting their business.

5.  Murder.

6.  Disobeying park closing rules.

7.  "Protesting" without appropriate permits.

8.  Theft, from stores and other OWSers.

9.  Fighting with police.

10.  Fighting with each other.

11.  Overturning cars.

12.  Having sex in public.

13.  Expecting "free" food.

14.  Using constant vulgarities.

15.  Walking aroung nude in public.

16.  Cutting a police officer with a weapon.

17.  Urinating in public and/or on private property.

18.  Deficating on the American flag.

19.  Interrupting unrelated conferences.

20.  Being so unclean as to spread STDs and tuberculosis and other diseases.

My guess is that fully half of all liberal/progressives would justify over half of the above as OK, so long as the point is gotten across.

SoCal Street Cart Vendors Hurting After ‘Occupy’ Group Splatters Blood, Urine

A business owner near the Occupy Wall Street encampment claims she has been repeatedly harassed and threatened with bodily harm by protesters after she and her employees refused to give in to their outlandish demands.

“I’ve been told, ‘Watch your back!’ 10 times,” Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini & Co. Breads, located across from Zuccotti Park, told The Post yesterday.

She and her employees are terrified by the constant threats, which she said began after she demanded the protesters stop using her shop’s restroom as a place to bathe every day.

The final straw came about two weeks ago, when the demonstrators broke a bathroom sink, flooding the shop, and clogged the toilet -- setting her back $3,000 in damages.

See 179 photos of the "civility" of OWSers.

Most of them look a lot like XO, Craig and Ducky, don't they?

MY FINAL LAST WORDS ON OWS (Actually Bill Whittle's Words)

(People's comments that are not relevant to the video will be deleted. Translation: Watch the video before commenting.)

Monday, October 24, 2011


I first saw this over at GeeeeeZ

It really is an example of how poorly our government does EVERYTHING!

Why you liberal/progressives trust them with a single dollar is beyond me.

And they SURE can't handle these millions.


Once upon a time, a lady appeared in a public forum holding a balloon between her hands.

"How do you like my red balloon," she asked. "Isn't it a pretty red balloon?"

From behind her came a bearded philosophical type who said in a voice that all could hear, "Lady, that's not a red balloon, it's a green one."

"Sir," she responded, "you are mistaken. This is a red balloon."

Said he, "You are so shallow in your understanding. Why can you not allow for another's prospective? I say it is a green balloon, and you should be open minded enough to allow that it might be."

Suddenly a lady dressed as a high class "housewife" type came up to her and exclaimed, "My! What a nice blue balloon you have."

"Ma'am," responded the balloon lady, "you are quite wrong, this is a red balloon, not a blue one."

"You goof!" cried the newcomer. "You need to see things from my point of view. Surely you would allow that it might well be a blue balloon."

"Hey! Cool yellow balloon!" It was the voice of a hippie type. "Where'd you get it?"

Feeling exasperated, Balloon Lady answered, "It's not yellow, it's red!"

"Oh, wow, dudette, you don't have to get all defensive. It won't hurt nothin' if I say it's a yellow balloon. Chill!"

A man in a three piece suit approached.  "I'm a college graduate and I majored in balloon color science. I had over 12 professors who taught me all I need to know about balloon color and I say, it's a mauve balloon, and I should know...I have a college degree."

"College degree or not," exclaimed the Balloon Lady, "This is a red balloon and your snotty, high-brow attitude won't change my mind."

College Guy shot back, "You are SO narrow minded. You just can't see things the way others see them. Grow up! Get a life!"

A little child came up to the lady with the balloon.

"That sure is a pretty red balloon, lady. I sure wish I had one."

"Son," responded the Balloon Lady, "You are the only one who sees through eyes that have not yet been blinded by the twists and turns of the intellectual elites of this world. You want a red balloon? It's yours. Take it and enjoy it."

The little boy took the balloon.

"Thanks, lady," he said. "You're a real nice lady."

And he ran off with the balloon.

And the balloon was red.

And that's the truth.

Time Magazine reported that 50% of Americans support OWS.

A new AP poll finds that just 37 percent back the movement.

So either Time was wrong (or lying) or support is dwindling.

I suspect the latter.

At the very least, the 99% claim of OWS is insanely wrong and stupid, to boot.

If you are interested in the central message of OWS, check this out.

Here's the exciting video:

The incoherent droning of the speaker fully represents the intelligence level of 99% of OWSers.

You OWSers have a disjointed message, at best, and are among the most inarticulate of all Americans, lending support to the idea that most were educated in government schools and leftist universities (those few who attended college or universities).

Most of them are just day-bums who have nothing to add to society but only take from it.

I find them, their ideas and their actions contemptible and backward.

For people like Jesse Jackson to equate them to the marches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an abomination to his memory, and frankly, demonstrates the depth to which Jackson had sunk in his representation of the needs of black America.

Occupy Wall Street is the punch line of a hundred jokes....only not a funny punch line.

Somebody enlighten me.

Did the food come from organic farm, non-profit donors?

What about the sleeping bags? Where did they come from?

Most of all, where did they find those brilliant philosophers?

I particularly liked the last "lady" who gave us a visual of her IQ and expressed it with her eloquent message.

Now, I'm just a poor, lower middle class person with very few significant material possessions.

Somebody please explain to me how one single solitary Wall Street billionaire is hurting me one iota.

What do I care that he/she has billions?

There is not a finite amount of money in America.

If I'm willing to do what they (the rich) did to become rich, why shouldn't I be rich if I want to be?

If you want to be rich and I don't, how are you hurting me?

Sombody explain this idiocy!

"It is just not right that 1 percent of people control the resources that 99 percent of people have to purchase. We need morals and values, not just greed taking over everything."

That was a statement made by one of the "Occupy Ft. Myers" so-called protesters, Tia Wilin, at the huge event held in Centennial Park.

Did I say "huge event?"

There were 150 people present.

So...why is it "just not right" that people who drive the economy have a say in how the economy is run?

The late Steve Jobs was among that "1%."

If he was so evil by "winning life's lottery (thinking about, taking the risk to establish, and being successful through hard work and innovation at Apple), why do so many people buy his Mac and iProducts?

Likewise Bill Gates, re: PCs.

Furthermore, what is there to keep any one of you who wants to, to follow in their footsteps and join the "1%?"

Want a job?

Start your own successful business.

You can do that in America.

Dave Thomas did it in the midst of huge competition from other fast fooders.

Why can't you?

If you decide to do so, though, be prepared for hundreds of federal regulations telling you what you have to do and what you can't do in your new business, all of which will cost you money and will impact your ability to sustain your business.

The message of the "Occupy" group is a false one, born of ignorance and sheep-life followship of paid "organizers," much like President BO (the child president)'s community organizer days.

What dim wits.

Give us our jobs back?

Who do they think took their jobs?

Their jobs began their decline when Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and their friends ordered financial institutions to make loans to people who they knew could not pay them back.

Their jobs continued to decline when the government "helped" corporations with hand-outs called "stimulus," 80% of which never made it to the ones they were supposed to help. The rest of it went to "green" companies that promptly went bankrupt.

So, if among OWS' desires is to have work, why don't they just pay each other?

Or, they could select a few of themselves to be the hirers, while the rest of them are the hirees.

No, that won't work.

The hirers would then become the bad guys and make too much money.

Maybe some of them could think of something the rest of the world wants...something like the iPhone...and make millions on it.

Talk about irony...that would take the cake.

They don't seem to realize that it is people who take risks, make good investments, work hard and provide people with goods and services they want and need who form the companies that could give them a job.

Instead, they seem to think those people owe THEM something for no reason at all.

They ask the capitalists to GIVE them sleeping bags, food, shelter and then whine about how awful those capitalists are.

Like all liberal/progressives, they are complete fools.

The London Daily Mail reported: “Stinking up Wall Street: Protesters accused of living in filth as shocking pictures show one demonstrator defecating on a POLICE CAR.”

The newspaper reported:

According to eyewitnesses, when people ran to tell nearby police about the man defecating on the squad car they were ignored.

Standing downwind of the piles of rubbish, bankers walking past the man did a double take before hurrying away.

Brookfield Office Properties, which owns Zuccotti Park, the site of the New York demonstration, have already railed against protesters, who they claim are creating sanitation problems.

‘Sanitation is a growing concern,’ Brookfield said in a statement.






Go to YouTube and type in "Accupy Wall Street" to see dozens of interviews and videos of conflicting purposes, blaming assorted entities for the "mess" we're in, including corporations and government alike.

There is no central message except "give us something for free, something we don't have to work for, but give us jobs, and don't make any money for yourself if you're rich."

Show Me One, Just One Tea Party Photo that Rivals This Occupy Wall Street Debauchery

The "Occupy" crowd is a bunch of uncivilized, barbaric, screaming, banshees who have no purpose except to shriek mindless, meaningless dribble in incoherent patterns.

They are filthy mouthed, trash leaving, lawless imbeciles who don't even know what they are doing. Most of them don't know why they are there.

The have no plan and no solutions, all they can do is screech, "We want our jobs back" (which most of them never had in the first place), "we want our houses back" (which most of them never had because they never held an honest job in their lives) and "we hate capitolists" (which they can't even spell correctly--witness their web site)."

They are not demonstrators, they are disrupters, and don't know the difference between the two.

They want the very ones they pretend to hate (capitOlists) to provide them with sleeping bags, food, water and other amenities that they lack because they won't work for them.

They are at the opposite end of the civilization spectrum from the Tea Partiers, which anyone with a third grader's intelligence could see.

SUNDAY RESPITE-Soon and Veery soon-Jessy Dixon & Andre Crouch

Beloved gospel singer, songwriter and musician, Jessy Dixon, died Monday in his Chicago home.

During the lifetime of a career that spanned upwards of five decades, Dixon wrote more than 200 songs. Author of gospel classics such as ‘I Love To Praise His Name’ and ‘, ‘He’s The Best Thing…To Happen to Me’, Dixon was perhaps most known for his 1993 hit ‘I Am Redeemed’ a song that impacted audiences worldwide, and held a top-ten position on the gospel charts for over five years.

Dixon began studying music at the age of five, and his original aspiration was to become a classical pianist. However, during a 1997 interview with the associated press, Dixon revealed that since early childhood, he knew he wanted to use his gifts and talents in the church. Dixon was catapulted into a broader gospel scene after being discovered by gospel music legend, James Cleveland, but remained dedicated to his desire of sharing that gospel he heard about as a youth.

For the past 16 years, Jessy Dixon had been a cherished fixture on the Bill Gaither Gospel Hour television series, and concert tours. His unbridled enthusiasm for sharing the gospel, and the boundless energy he brought to the stage made him an instant favorite to all who knew and loved him, both in the United States and in Europe. "Nowhere else in the world will you find such a delightful, pure, and honest performance, ingeniously combining brilliant vocalizing, and high energy excitement as when you listen to Jessy Dixon. When your feet begin to tap with the beat, the desire to get up and dance becomes overwhelming, and maybe a tear comes to your eyes; that is when Jessy Dixon's performance has reached its pinnacle," (International Herald Tribune).

Over the course of his career in gospel music, Dixon received several Dove award nominations for his work, seven Grammy nominations, garnered five gold albums, and was a 2008 Christian Music Hall of Fame inductee.
In addition to his accomplishments in the realm of gospel, Dixon also enjoyed success in other genres of music. Dixon was well known for his collaboration and friendship with Paul Simon, with whom he toured for eight years, and was contributor on several of Simon’s albums.

Aside from his work with Paul Simon, Dixon also wrote numerous songs for such artists as Cher, Natalie Cole, Amy Grant, and Diana Ross. In addition to singing and songwriting, Dixon played keyboard with Earth, Wind, and Fire, and guitarist Phillip Upchurch, as well as piano for gospel legend, Mahalia Jackson.

Despite international recognition and acclaim, Dixon stated the greatest joy of his life was to 'bask in the love of the one whom this gospel music is all about.”
