How could they fuck this up?

September 6, 2007

   They had complete surprise.  Nobody had any idea what was going on.  Yet once again the Commander-in-Chief, and the U.S. armed forces failed to take advantage, and failed at yet another mission that would’ve gauranteed the security of America’s heartland for decades to come.

   On several occassions over   the last 8 years I’ve had several disagrements with the current administration, but believed they were doing their best with the somewhat limited intellectual resources at their disposal.  I’ve made allowances for the fact that they botched up the war in Iraq because I understood it was about personal enrichment, and it’s hard to concentrate on killing people while your stuffing your pockets full of cash.

   This however is unforgiveable.  I will no longer make excuses for these cretins.  They obviously have no idea how to protect the American people, and should be impeached or skinned alive

How in the hell do you fly 6 nuclear weapons over South Dakota, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisiana and not drop one in every single state along the way?

The Weekend in Review

September 4, 2007

  So did everybody have a good holiday weekend?  Well, I know not everybody, but if most of you did, good on yuh.

How about those Michigan Wolverines?  I was so tickled I couldn’t quit smiling all weekend.  Being a dyed in the wool Badgers fan, seeing the always overrated Wolverines get dumped on their head by Appalachian State was better than a good heroin binge.  The badgers beat Washington state (boohoo PNW), and Notre Dame got monkey stomped by Georgia Tech.  All in all it was a perfect day in college football.

    I went to a Mexican wedding with the chango’s from work, and other than the Cerveza (sol) tasting like warm horse piss it was a really good time.  I taught a whole passel of senorita’s how to eat the worm out of a Mezcal bottle without drinking the whole damn thing, and the food was spectacular.  I was asked to show my “green-go card” several times, and managed to extricate myself from the fiesta before I got inebriated enough to start calling everybody Pancho Villa.

   George Bush may not be the best president we ever had, but he did something really intelligent last night.  Merely by sneaking out of town to go to Anwar, he showed the world that the American Press is to be trusted about as much as Al Jazeera.  So much for investigative journalism.  They were only a half a planet wrong as to where the president was.  Nice job ABC, CNN, FOX, et al.  too funny.

   The menagerie is driving me nuts.  This morning Mollie woke me up before the sun.  This is a no no on non-work days, and had it not been for the pitiful whine she was sounding I would have ignored her and went back to sleep.  When I turned the light on the reason for her whining became all to clear.   General Tso was latched onto her tail, and showed no intention of letting go.  I squeezed the little ratbag’s head till she released her, and went back to sleep.  I start hearing this crunching sound.  I had watched a movie last night prior to going to bed, and had inadvertantly left the case open.  Bad Idea.  Roscoe the asshole…i mean wonder bunny was in their taste testing the DVD cases.  I reached over and closed the door on his head, and then shut it proper when he withdrew.  It’s not like I don’t spend 20 bucks a week to feed the little bastard.  I go back to sleep.  Whilst sleeping I must have gotten warm, because I stuck my foot out from under the blanket, whereupon General Tso, still angry over his ignominious removal from Mollies assfeathers, leaped to the attack.  Kittens have razor sharp claws, and my foot looks like it would if Ron Popeil spent an hour testing his knives on it.

    The kids on the other hand have been easy to get along with.  No fighting, not even a good argument.  Apparently the supplemants (thorazine) I’ve been adding to their food is helping.

Oh yeah, I went on a date with a woman a little less than half my age.  I wouldn’t have, but she was buying, and I learned at a very young age to never pass up free food.  It went ok, and while I doubt I’d put me through it again this wasn’t her fault.  She was polite, charming, intelligent, and named after cheese.  It was all I could do not to beat that into the ground.


What to do with illegal immigrants

September 2, 2007

  Lets see, Mexico’s president is enjoying 65% favorability even though he is using his military to fight crime in Mexico, an unpopular move to be sure.  President Bush is enjoying less than 30% popularity.  Do you think it may have something to do with how Mexico deals with their Illegal immigrant problems.

Quite likely not, but when I hear people cry about how evil our immigration policies are, I tend to remember that they are some of the most liberal on the planet, and far less stringent than any of our neighbors.

Thanks again George.  Fucking idiot


Ford’s hydrogen fueled prototype does 207mph

August 20, 2007

   Now were talking.  I know nobody likes to hear it, but George Bush has been pushing this type of vehicle for years.  He talked about it in his state of the union addresses, and its now nearing reality.  Fords Fusion race car performed admirably on the salt flats, and according to the news report they have 30 of these prototypes being tested in the U.S., Germany, and Canada.  The 30 vehicles have 500,000 miles logged between them, and have a fuel cell that will take them 350 miles; roughly the same as your gas tank takes your current vehicle.

It has no carbon footprint.  None.  Zip. Zero.  Sometimes even a Republican can get it right.  Sometimes though you don’t realize it they are working toward what they said they were working toward.  No word yet on when it will be publically available.

Thanks for the push this technology needed George.  Now get us to hell out of Iraq.  I still don’t like you, but this was good work.


Rove resigns, cites family obligations

August 13, 2007

 and liberal nation rejoices.  The brains behind George Bush’s ascension in the political world is heading south.  Right before the Iraq benchmarks, which is smart.  If he stays for that he’s stuck to the end.  It’s Christmas in August for liberals, and a bad day for the administration


Take 2 Minutes To See How Wrong You Are

August 12, 2007

  Yes, you the incredibly bright American people are wrong.   All of you anti-war types, and bring home the war types have no idea what you are talking about.  You think the administration is stupid for walking into this mess without a plan.  I say, “yeah right”

They had a plan, because they knew exactly what we were facing, and what the outcome would be if we took down Saddam Hussein.  They knew we’d be in it up to our ears for years, and would be virtually alone in the endeavor.  they knew every pitfall and pratfall on the road to a democratic Iraq, and Dick Cheney at least has known since 1994.

So why really, if what he says here he knew all this time, did he recommend the current course of action?  What possible reason could there be for him to advocate opening the Pandora’s box that is Iraq?  Don’t say oil or money.  He needs neither, and they don’t make sense.  Thats just easy leftie answers.


The democrats had a forum

August 8, 2007

  Soldier field was never so dreary.  15,000 union members, well aware that the sun is setting on their way of life, hunkered down in Soldier Field to once again try to determine which candidate would screw them least.  There were no Republicans on the gridiron this hot August Day as the unions know that their “great white hype” will not have  “screw America’s middle class” conservative values.  Instead the table was set with a meager fare of left wingers and centrist liberals.  Like potatoes with no gravy this ass ugly crew of never done wells came to denigrate the intelligence of the American Worker, and deservedly so.

    Hearken back several years, and you will find that it was a Democrat (Bill Clinton) who signed into law one of the worst defeats ever for union labor.  We also joined the WTO under his administration, and Union membership and jobs have been declining drastically ever since.  Interestingly, the wife of that president was on this stage, and nearly half of her fellow candidates had voted for NAFTA and the WTO.

    So these downtrodden masses came to see if there was hope for an afterlife for American labor.  They left with T-shirts, and promises.  Promises that will be broken as soon as it becomes politically expedient.  Promises of Pension protection, universal health care, a rebuilding of American Industry; the list goes on and on, but the reality is it was a night for Snow White and the Seven Dorks to play dress up and hand out treats to the children.  Nobody present could possibly believe the lies they were told,  having been marginalized so often in the past by the party claiming to be for the working man.

   I said Seven Dorks because it was Kieth Olbermann who played moderator, and they couldn’t have found a wimpier guy for the task.  His actual cartoon character should be puss in boots, because he let the candidates walk all over him.

Dennis Kucinich sadly believes he has a chance.  He actually has a solid voting record in relation to union issues, and is possibly the most decent guy on that stage.

Bill Richardson went back to his style of reciting his resume, but he failed to mention his vote for NAFTA

John Edwards has done the legwork, but he comes off as so insincere that voting for him would be the equivalent of playing russian roulette.

Christopher Dodd was forceful, but has lost whatever charisma he had found over the last several weeks, and was all in all utterly boring.

Barack Obama is the George Bush of the left.  He can’t admit when he is wrong, even if the average 10 year old knows it.

Joe Biden was terrific.  When Kieth olbermann asked him if he would end no bid contracts and gave him 30 seconds to answer he said “yes.”  At least if he’s lying he kept it short.  Again, I could vote for this guy.

Hillary is going to be the Democratic nominee for president, but I think Joe Biden is a wiser choice for VP than Barack.  Barack needs weathering, and a better understanding of what it takes to be a player on a global stage.  The union folks for the most part didn’t seem to appreciate her all that much, but they no longer hold sway as they once did.
