It's Official, The National Guard Is Broken.

This bit of news from the Washington Post is just damn near enough to make me stand in the street and scream.

While I am not exactly at a loss for words, the ones that come to mind are very, very bad ones.

Bush and some lackies in Congress are using FEMA money to put our own troops on the ground inside the Continental United States with the excuse of using them to "Bolster National Security".

Not two thousand, not five not ten but TWENTY THOUSAND ARMED TROOPS.

Of course it's because no one is safe and it's for your own good and don't you dare say a fucking word about it because Nanny Congress thinks it's a good idea and JUST WHAT IN THE FUCK IS THE NATIONAL GUARD FOR?!

Oh yeah, Bush had to pillage and plunder the National Guard for his little pet war in Iraq.

I especially loved this little gem.

"Gates gave commanders 25 days to propose changes and cost estimates. He cited the work of a congressionally chartered commission, which concluded in January that the Guard and reserve forces are not ready and that they lack equipment and training. "


No shit?
Is that maybe because all their fucking equipment and personnel are over in the Big Motherfucking Sandbox in the Middle East?

Who the fuck could have foreseen that the National Guard really isn't up to the task of their primary objective?
I dunno, maybe every fucking Governor of every fucking state in the nation?
I'll pass on the urge to single out Caribou Barbie, that shit is just too easy.

The Governors have been complaining about this very situation for SEVERAL years now.

Oh and about that Posse Comitatus Act?

They somehow see fit to completely ignore that trifling inconvenience.

This is directly attributable to George Bush and those weasels in Congress who can't see our hands in front of their faces because they are too busy doing any damn thing except taking their responsibilities seriously.
But ya gotta have those Congressional hearings into steroid use in Baseball, now don't ya. Or maybe you need to change the official name of some Goddamn Post office in Podunk Oklahoma, they are all over that shit.

I know there is a lot of important stuff that needs to get fixed but the National Guard people have done their duty in spades and we should be rebuilding their inventory and getting them the hell out of Iraq would go a long ways towards being able to fund them properly.

I dunno, maybe it's just me but I sure as hell don't see a need for ground troops to be used for the exact same reason the National Guard exists for in the first place.

The justifications and the excuses given do not pass the smell test.

Now I Have Seen It All

I like cats and normally there is nothing in life that is funnier to me than seeing a cat swim because everyone knows how much cats hate getting wet.

Get a load of this,



I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

Andouille Sausage, Food Of The Gods!

My my my.

I'm telling ya, if you have never tried this stuff, you are missing out!
It is traditionally made out of pork, I have to mention that, although it can be made with chicken too.

Keerist this is good stuff!

I found a semi local butcher on Fourth Plain Blvd that carries it and I think there is going to be some stuff come out of the freezer to make room for more!

I like spicy food and this is Cajun baby.

I heat it up and quarter a nice onion and go to town!
It is great in soups, Gumbo and Jumbalaya, Split Pea, just about any soup.


Get ya some and try it, it is great for breakfast or BBQ too.

The Boss man said we could go home at Noon if we wanted to, sans pay.
Yay, I don't know about anyone else but I have bills to pay.

I am however, working on my own rig.
BWAAAAHAHAHAHAAAA.

Dammet, he came back from lunch.
Oh well, I am still getting some much needed maintenance done on The Beast.

This Brings A Tear To My Eye

If this story and the implications of this little girl doing her homework on the same desk that President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on doesn't touch you, there is something very, very wrong with you.


CHICAGO—President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, said their young daughters will still have to do chores in the White House and won't get out of doing homework just because they're the president's children. In an interview with Barbara Walters, the Obamas said Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, will have lives as normal as possible. That means helping out around the house.

"That was the first thing I said to some of the staff when I did my visit," Michelle Obama said. "I said, 'You know, we're going to have to set up some boundaries,' because they're going to need to be able to make their beds, and clean up."

The girls, who will be attending the prestigious Sidwell Friends School, also will be expected to do their homework as usual. Although, the president-elect said, Malia has her eye on a special spot to write important papers.


snip




Obama, who is known to be an avid reader of Lincoln history, said his daughter told him "I'm going to sit at that desk, because I'm thinking that will inspire big thoughts."

During the interview, Obama described the desk as being the spot where Lincoln signed the Gettysburg Address. While there is a copy of the address on display in that room, it actually was the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves that Lincoln signed there.




How fucking awesome is that?


H/T to Fark for spreading the word.

The original story is at Boston.com.

Happy Turkey Day

From me to you.

There is much to be thankful for in these trying times, all you have to do is look a little for it.

Got Change For a Twenty? (Updated)

7.7 Trillion United States Dollars. That is what I am hearing.

Damn, I think I left that for a tip to that big titted young blond yesterday.

7.7 Trillion dollars.

Who in the fuck can count that high?


No one can, it is physically impossible.

Not even the enablers in charge of delivering the news that this is the cost of how unbelievably deep in the hole we are because of George W. Bush and his band of Merry Men could possibly realize the numbers coming out of their mouth.
Nobody, no one can count to one Trillion, let alone do it seven fucking times in a row.

We are in imaginary girl friend land now. Make believe amounts of money. This amount of physical dollars does not exist, nor could it.



Start packing a lunch, at least you can put your hands on a peanut butter sandwich.

Update.

A guy named Jim Bianco put this into some perspective for us.
This proposed bailout is bigger than all of the following, COMBINED.

• Marshall Plan: Cost: $12.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $115.3 billion
• Louisiana Purchase: Cost: $15 million, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $217 billion
• Race to the Moon: Cost: $36.4 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $237 billion
• S&L Crisis: Cost: $153 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $256 billion
• Korean War: Cost: $54 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $454 billion
• The New Deal: Cost: $32 billion (Est), Inflation Adjusted Cost: $500 billion (Est)
• Invasion of Iraq: Cost: $551b, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $597 billion
• Vietnam War: Cost: $111 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $698 billion
• NASA: Cost: $416.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $851.2 billion

TOTAL: $3.92 trillion

I Agree With This Message

Paraphrasing Jay Leno on the proposed bail out of the car industry;

The Blue Collar guys and the White Collar guys should work together on this, the Blue Collar guys should keep building cars and the White Collar guys should make the license plates.

Word.

How To Blow a Hundred At the Dollar Store

It's not as hard as you would think.

I love the Dollar store, I get all kinds of stuff there.
Things like trash bags, tin foil,( Need a new hat once in a while, ya know)
Baggies, paper towels, John Wayne toilet paper, (80 grit), you name it.

They beat the local Safeway like a rented mule when it comes to being cheap on prices.
So the other day I went in there and just had a complete runaway.

Canned corn, 2 fer a buck.Green beans the same deal
Campbells chicken noodle soup. 16 0z can, a buck.
32 oz Cran Raspberry juice, a buck.
Armour Treat, mystery meat, a buck.
Three liter bottles of Pop, a buck.

Canned peaches and pears, well you get it.
Hell, it's worth me going to just to buy Laundry and Dish soap!

Two shopping carts full, and I do mean full, 95 bucks and change, including tax.

The problem now is where to put it all.
I live in The Rat Hole, a Twenty Six foot box on wheels that is notorious for not having much storage space.

I am a pretty creative guy when it comes to stuff like this though.
I just might lift off the top of the bed and start stacking it around the fresh water tank. That ought to be interesting.

It would be too much trouble to , you know, re arrange the stuff I already have and throw out a bunch of junk stereo equipment I have laying around.
Besides, them two varmint cats have to have somewhere to hide when I come home and find cat puke on the floor.

Gee, Ya Think?

I have seen a few sites grumbling about this widget guessing the gender of the author wrong.
Now granted, you don't see much of anyone calling a woman a bastard, there is another (Ahem) term used a lot more often.
Even though, I was still pleasantly surprised that there didn't seem to much ambivalence when analyzing my blog for gender .

Curing What Ails Ya, Naturally

Yeah, I still feel kinda crappy but Patricia was kind enough to hook me up with a link in the comments to an all natural ingredients website for home remedies for a TON of various illnesses and afflictions.
That was awful nice of her to do.

She knows that of which she speaks, also.

She and her husband Michael are doing their best to not only get by their ownselves but also try and inform and educate folks how to stock up on goods and be more self sufficient, they practice what they preach too!
I read Staying Alive, Every. Single. Day.

A unique voice amongst the noise of the day.

Michael affectionately refers to Patricia as The Handmaiden.
That is so dang cute I can hardly stand it.

I highly suggest you visit all of these sites , if for no other reason, to broaden your horizons and maybe learn a few things!

The Handmaiden's site is here, Michaels "Staying Alive" site is here and the Home Remedy site is here.

By the way, I am trying one of the recipes for colds that uses Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon juice and I'll be danged if my head congestion isn't clearing up!
It better be, that stuff is just NASTY!!
YUK!


Just wait until I can get to the Tomato tea with Cayenne pepper!
WHOOT!

Bleargh

I am still fighting this cold.

It hasn't gotten real, real bad yet. I slept quite a bit yesterday and then spent all afternoon and evening doing laundry, and I'm still not done!
Of course, now my sleep schedule is completely fucked up.

Drank some whiskey late last night so I could go back to sleep after drinking coffee all afternoon.

I am awake early this morning after being up past one o'clock in the morning. I see a nap coming my way. like, right now.

Over and out.

It's Going To Be A Long Weekend

My fuckin' buddy at work has been sick all week with a fucking headcold.
Guess who just came down with the fucker?
About an hour ago I felt it coming and as I type it is coming on with a vengeance.
Great.
Not only that, now I have to work late, on a Friday.

Grumpy? Me?
You bet yer ass I'm grumpy, wait 'till tomorrow.

Sixty excrutiatingly long days and Bush is (Bad) History.
Fuck Christmas, January Twentieth is the day I am looking forward to. I want him gone more than mere words can express.

Mommy, I'm Hungry....

Let's quit chasing the dog here, this country is starting the long slow slide into your worst nightmare.


Congress has currently tied themselves in knots trying to figure out just who gets a slice of Mr. Paulsons SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR bail out.

Let me tell you in no uncertain terms,
YOU are not going to see one thin dime of that ridiculously huge amount of money. Not one cent.

None.

In the mean time , there is a lot of air time and ink being spread around whether or not General Motors is going to get a little slice of the pie to keep them solvent enough so they can honor the retirement benefits of several thousand former workers who busted their backsides keeping that conglomerate in the black for so many years.
No real mention of Ford and Chrysler is a given to go with any bailout of GM.


Chrysler is currently owned by Daimler,of Germany if I am not mistaken, who also bought Freightliner Trucks, which has just announced some major cutbacks, including the ones at the corporate headquarters on Swan Island, in Portland Oregon.

Oh, by the way, Chrysler has already been bailed out once by the government, it was huge in case you don't remember.I don't see anything about that in the MSM, what a surprise.

The bottom line for the everyday family is that there is no Bail Out for you.

You get to pay for whatever amount of money these people decide it is going to take to keep their business buddies above water, too bad your children are starving.

That is some change that needs to happen.

Someone needs to look a few hungry children in the eye and ask themselves what is more important here.

Of course, that has never stopped any corporation in its quest for profits that I have ever seen, in my lifetime. Why have the children of American citizens in a place called Appalachia been starving for over fifty years?

Nobody seems to give a damn ?

I have some bad news for you,

Hunger is not just a "foreign" problem and never has been, it has been an ongoing problem in this country since its inception, the media just doesn't want to acknowledge that out loud but, the numbers are not going to lie here shortly. Hunger has been ignored, to our shame. Now it is going to be a daily problem for a great deal of the citizens of the greatest country on the face of the earth.

Such as it is.

Yay Team.

Someday,

I hope to be able to have a drink with this guy,we seem to have a few things in common.

The Rude One, go read it, I agree wholeheartedly that the Dems best watch their fucking step.


Note that when I say have a drink with, I actually mean get falling down drunk and doing coke off a pretty hookers ass.

It's been years .

Digital Television Coming In February

I just happen to have had the little piece of shit TV I have turned on a few minutes ago while watching the local news.

They have been harping about this signal change coming in February since, I don't know, last fucking April.

Every time I turn it on they are all breathless, worrying that they might lose every rednecked motherfucker within two states if these same idjits don't step up to the plate and buy a newer television or get this stupid fucking box to plug into it to change the signal from analog to digital.
Every little old lady over seventy has been on heightened alert and changing their Depends thrice daily since then.

Lucky for me, they just did a LIVE TEST!!! Eleventy Eleven !!!

I will be throwing out my television in late January, hopefully on my fucking Birthday.


See ya.

I ain't going to miss the fourteen different COP shows, CSI, or any other Authoritarian sledgehammer show they are so fond of running 24/7.
Oh, and Celeb TV is even worse.
Fuck Brittany.

Cheney, Gonzales Indicted In Texas

It's short and Oh My God Is It Sweet!!

Taken from Think Progress En Toto;

Vice President Cheney and former Attorney General Gonzales indicted.»


A South Texas grand jury has returned multi-count indictments against Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County’s federal detention centers:

The indictment accuses Cheney and Gonzales of engaging in organized criminal activity. It criticizes Cheney’s investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and “at least misdemeanor assaults” on detainees by working through the prison companies.

Gonzales is accused of using his position while in office to stop an investigation into abuses at the federal detention centers.


Finally, someone with the fucking balls to go after these thug bastards.
My hat is off to you.

So far, nothing at the NYT, LAT or WAPO, they must be saving it for a back story tomorrow.

Seriously Pissed Off Right Now

So, Harry Reid tells us that Joe Lieberman is a Democrat and he is part of the caucus.
After Lieberman has openly campaigned AGAINST Democrats FOR Republicans, bad mouthed Obama, who he mentored and went so far as to say that a Super majority by Democrats would be "scary" and then made a fucking speech at the Republican National Convention.

Right, try to follow that logic.

If I had a fucking dog that acted like Lieberman there would already be a hole dug in the back yard.

Just to be fair, the Republicans don't seem to be able to find their balls either, they couldn't find enough guts to toss Convicted Felon Stevens out either.

What a completely useless group of individuals we ALL have representing us in government.
Key word, representing.

None of these motherfuckers are representing my views on accountability in government, none.
So, even if you are a Republican, you can be ashamed of your representatives today for not having the fucking guts to kill a tick.

Something To Go With Yer Coffee

It's kind of amazing that this tune is way the hell over forty years old but it never fails to jazz me up.
The Kinks, You Really Got Me.



I don't wanna hear any shit about this one either, I LIKE Foghat and this is a fucking cool tune.

Terraplane Blues,

That Was Fun

For the third time in a month I had to go to work and load up the car trailer and bring it home to haul some piece of shit down there.
I laid around most of the day recuperating from my late night last nite, I think I got home about a quarter to three this morning.
I keep forgetting about the time change and at three this afternoon finally headed to work to get the car trailer because the transmission in my little work truck took a shit the other day and is stuck in second gear and won't come out.

That means a forty mile round trip, twice.
Of course it got dark before I got back and I had to dick around and load the sonofabitch and chain it down in the dark.
I just got back and I am going to kick back and get ready to go to work in the morning, I still didn't get any laundry done, I have just enough left for tomorrow and then I am going to spend my evening at the laundromat. I can't wait.

Caturday

Some asshole called the city and complained about the dumpster stinking because some OTHER asshole threw a bunch of fish guts in it to sit and rot for most of the week.
This prompted my landlord to have a fit and I came home about a week ago to a nastygram on my door with all kinds of rules and regulations and spleen venting, saying that the code enforcement dickheads were going to be all over the fucking place and now we are going to go all fucking Nazi on yer asses until this shit blows over.

One of these new rule enforcements included the decree that cats are HOUSE PETS!! DAMMIT!!, and they need to be kept indoors 24/7 and NO FUCKING CAT FOOD OUTSIDE!! and blah dee fucking blah.

Kiss my ass.

So , I had a cat litter box in the Rat Hole, but the little varmints never used it because if they had to do their business, they just went to the door and got my attention and I let 'em out.
I really liked that system.
Oh no, soo now I get to fight the little fuckers every morning to keep them from skeedaddling out the fucking door when I go to work.
I have a couple of useless neighbors who are apparently on the dole from the government who have decided they need to be the unofficial Home Owners Association, in a fucking trailer park, no less, and are constantly giving me a hard time about my lack of enthusiasm over things like mowing the ten square feet of grass in my back yard and generally keeping things ship shape.
I could really give a fuck. They got all day to fuck around and make the place cutesy, I work.
When I ain't working, I'm drinking. Fuck them.
But no, now they are watching for my cats being outside.
These same cocksuckers have two dogs, a fucking Pit Bull and some sort of terrier, Rat dog.
So they put up chain link fences and gates and holy fucking hell knows what to keep these little asshole dogs from running all over, like they used to.
So my cats are not the happy little campers they used to be, laying around in the sun, licking their asses all day, running amok whenever they felt like it.
This is also affecting my sunny outlook on life as I am now trapped in a tin can with two fucking cats that want to lay all over me constantly.


Of course, if you have been reading my stuff for any length of time and just happen to recall the name of this blog, you can pretty much see what my reaction to all this bullshit is going to be.....

Fuck that.

Out the fucking door you little bastards go, a big Fuck You to the neighbors and Shut Yer Fucking Pie Hole to boot.

I pretty much keep the furballs imprisoned while I am at work but the minute I get home it is GET THE FUCK OUT and have a nice day kitties.

One nice thing about this little crack down, I keep the food dish inside now and am just fucking amazed at how much cat food I am not going through anymore.
I must have been feeding half the fucking cats in this place.

Update;

My buddy just called me and said he would give me one of those new fangled digital camera thingies.

If I can get it to work with this antique fucking laptop I will see about maybe putting up mug shots of the varmints.
We'll see.

Where Is My Fucking Hammer?

OK.
I'll admit it without embarassment,I need some technical advice here.
It seems I have attracted some motherfucking Spammer Asshole,again.
After almost three years of blogging, I have always been kinda proud that I have not had to moderate the comments here and I don't want to start now,

Can someone please tell me how to go about banning a certain ISP?
I know it can be done and I would rather banish this one cocksucker than have to resort to word verification because I personally fucking hate that shit with a passion.
In the mean time, I now have to manually delete this diarrhea.
I see the motherfucker has been wreaking havoc on other sites as well.

Whoever you are motherfucker, you can thank the Gods of garbage cans I can't get my hands on you, I would grease the front end of my truck with your innards.
Fuck off, die and rot quickly.

Anyway, any technical help from someone more tech savvy than I am would be greatly appreciated.

I Am Grateful

It is raining cats and dogs, has been for two days.
I am talking flooding out the roads and ruining what little hairdo I have left clear through my Baseball cap.
Ya know what? I do not have any leaks in my roof and don't have to put buckets and bowls under a constant drip, drip, drip, like I used to.

I am very thankful that I have a roof over my head.
It ain't much, but it is mine. I am very serious.

I guess the folks at AIG would have a fit if the high dollar roof they have been partying under actually leaked a drop of water into the glass of champagne in their hand.

I don't know about anyone else but I think maybe after crying to the government about being broke and getting a few billion dollars to bail yer asses out and then being busted AGAIN for partying their asses off on the public dollar,maybe some arrogant fucking bastards need to have a little sit down chat with the criminal fraud division.

I have seen too much arrogant behavior the last eight years but this shit is over the top.

These motherfuckers need to wind up not ever having to worry about having a leaky roof over their heads.
Or anything else for that matter.
Three hots and a cot for the rest of their life.

The Second Amendment Is Irrelevant

I have been getting the biggest kick out of people freaking out about the election of President Elect Obama and the reaction from the folks who are panicked about his supposed eagerness to grab the guns right out of the hands of every American and the panic happening as I type going on with people buying every damn bullet and firearm accessory available.

News flash, you are several years too late.

There are a lot of very happy firearms dealers who are going to have a profitable Christmas and a lot of panicked people who can't spend money fast enough on extended capacity magazines and high dollar shooting irons capable of throwing incredible amounts of lead down stream at rates of fire that would render the ratifiers of the Second amendment speechless.

Before anyone starts firing up the keyboard to light into my ass as a weak kneed liberal pussy who hates guns, I have another news flash for you, I love guns and I am a huge proponent of the Second Amendment that guarantees my right to own firearms . I have several.
The Right to bear arms has been seen to be a crucial incentive in keeping our very own government in check with the threat of deadly force, just to remind our elected officials that to go too far towards tyranny invites an armed response, and dead tyrants do not get the added benefits of breathing or reproducing.

Now,
Let me show you why the officials in the government are laughing their asses off at the quaint notion of Rednecked Rambo's with shoulder mounted pea shooters.

I am sure you have heard of the remote controlled and guided missile armed Predator aircraft ,they like to call these Drones, because there is no pilot to train or worry about if some harm comes to it and it crashes.
Recall there are some very dead terrorists accredited to these birds. Take your time and watch the videos at these links so this readily available information can sink in.
Now the Predator has a Big Brother, the Global Hawk.
Notice how this video shows the destructive force available for High Explosives.
That means it can deliver unconventional payloads, Bio, Nuclear,and multiple versions of Anti Personnel weapons,Napalm, Cluster Bombs,Air to Sea, Air to Surface, just let your imagination run wild for a minute.


Now then, take into consideration Google Earth has been opened to the public and shows one hundredth of the capabilities of the Spy Satellites that President Bush just turned inwards to our own country.

Traffic cameras are another example, your Government has the capability of reading the license plate on your car going seventy miles an hour, in the rain.
Then there is the abuse of FISA .
Every bit of the electronic activity you or I do is being monitored and stored.
EMail, Google Search, Cell Phone tracking, I hope by now you are starting to see the Big Picture.

This is not Tin Foil Hat time, these are proven technologies.

George Bush has been stacking the deck and we have been paying for it,literally.


I did not even mention the B2 Bomber or the F-117 or F22 Stealth Fighters.

How about your Local news Helicopter having Infra Red FLIR capabilities?
I know at least one local television news helicopter has this, think the US.Gov doesn't?

The fact of the matter is, if the Government of the United States of America wants you dead, you and anyone within a hundred yards will be and you will never know what happened.

Just ask a survivor from several wedding ceremonies in the Middle East recently.

I am completely aware that the government is outnumbered when it comes to individuals who are armed compared to what they have for "Boots On The Ground".

I am also aware that if you piss them off to the point someone high enough in the "Powers That Be' takes a personal interest in your termination, I would not like the odds of survival, AR15 or not.

The Republican Southern Strategy Is Dead

Bury that motherfucker deep too.

The Republicans turned out their base all right, it just wasn't as big as they thought it was and it is getting smaller every year.


Racism is alive and well down South but it has become a very localized tradition.

Southern counties that voted more heavily Republican this year than in 2004 tended to be poorer, less educated and whiter, a statistical analysis by The New York Times shows. Mr. Obama won in only 44 counties in the Appalachian belt, a stretch of 410 counties that runs from New York to Mississippi. Many of those counties, rural and isolated, have been less exposed to the diversity, educational achievement and economic progress experienced by more prosperous areas.

snip

Less than a third of Southern whites voted for Mr. Obama, compared with 43 percent of whites nationally. By leaving the mainstream so decisively, the Deep South and Appalachia will no longer be able to dictate that winning Democrats have Southern accents or adhere to conservative policies on issues like welfare and tax policy, experts say.

That could spell the end of the so-called Southern strategy, the doctrine that took shape under President Richard M. Nixon in which national elections were won by co-opting Southern whites on racial issues. And the Southernization of American politics — which reached its apogee in the 1990s when many Congressional leaders and President Bill Clinton were from the South — appears to have ended.

“I think that’s absolutely over,”
said Thomas Schaller, a political scientist who argued prophetically that the Democrats could win national elections without the South.

HeckOfAJob, Stupie

Talk about swirling the bowl.

WASHINGTON (CNN) --
On the day that President-elect Barack Obama visited the White House, a new national poll illustrates the daunting challenges he faces when it becomes his home next year.
.

Only 16 percent of those questioned in a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday say things are going well in the country today. That's an all-time low. Eighty-three percent say things are going badly, which is an all-time high.


Snip

Worst. President. Ever.

Executive Authority, Reversing Bush Policy

Oh, the irony. In a direct slap to the face, It is being reported that Barack Obama's transition team has already identified several Bush policies that were implemented by going around Congress by using that pesky Unitary Executive Authority that can be immediately reversed using the same trick.


CHICAGO: President-elect Barack Obama is poised to move swiftly to reverse actions that President George W. Bush took using executive authority, and his transition team is reviewing limits on stem cell research and the expansion of oil and gas drilling, among other issues, members of the team said Sunday.

As Obama prepared to make his first post-election visit to the White House on Monday, his advisers were compiling a list of policies that could be reversed by the executive powers of the new president. The assessment is under way, aides said, but a full list of policies to be overturned will not be announced by Obama until he confers with new members of his cabinet.

"There's a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action, and I think we'll see the president do that," John Podesta, a top transition leader, said Sunday. "He feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set."

This just cracks me up. Take that, ya bastards.

What Jill Said

Brilliant at Breakfast is one of the many Blogs I try to catch every day.
Jill has a post up that I find myself being in complete agreement with.

Do yerself a favor and go read the whole thing and see if you don't agree.
We have a long ways to go but our job as the governed is to be eternally vigilant and President elect Barack Obama is not going to get a free pass.

That is the only good thing to have come out of the Bush administration, thousands of Government observers, with their representatives on speed dial.

Looks Like I'm Shit Outta Luck

They don't have the Biggest Asshole award.

Oh well.

The 2008 Weblog Awards

So go vote for your favorites.
There are some awesome blogs out there.

That's OK though, I am still holding out some small bit of hope for a Golden Monkeyfist Award.

Hint hint.

Caturday

I just threw the little monsters out, in the rain.

Now all three of us are happy.

The daughter is coming over so I can look at her car, it keeps dying at stoplights. Then I'll be out in the rain with the little fuckers.

These goofy fucking cats are trying to set opposing schedules. One wants out first thing in the morning and the other one wants in.

Whatever, as long as the cat box gets cleaned and they have food and water, they can do whatever the hell they want.

Help Support Our Allies!

If you have been around the Lefty Blogs for any amount of time I would have to think you have run into some of the work of a friend of ours.
If you recognize the work of DarkBlack, you know what I am talking about.

Our friend is having some uncertain times and I do believe that a little dose of love from his friends on the Internets might have a huge effect for the good in his life. If ya happen to have an extra couple of bucks, I think it would be a beautiful thing if you could send them through the tubes and do a wonderful thing for our long time friend.
It would damn well be money well spent.

By the way, this needs to go viral.

An Attorney General With Fangs

That's what I want to see.

Fuck this BiPartisan Bullshit, you cocksuckers ran wild over our Constitution and our civil rights.

You called us traitors for even QUESTIONING the abuses you piled up.
An illegal war?
Check.
Torture?
Check.
Illegal wire tapping?
Check.
The Politicalization of the Justice Department?
Check.
The disclosure of the identity of an under cover CIA operative for political payback?
Check.
The Billions of Cash Dollars that disappeared in Iraq?
Check.
No bid government contracts awarded to the company the Vice President of the United States still gets dividends from?
Check.

Willingly staying on vacation while an entire United States city drowns and not doing a mother fucking thing to alleviate the suffering of thousands of US citizens?
Check.

Guantanamo?
Check.

The Department of Homeland Security?
Check.

Presidential signing statements?
Check.

Gutting Habeus Corpus?
Check.

Disregarding Posse Comitatus?
Check.


Authorizing the kidnapping of United States citizens and their transfer to non NATO countries to be tortured into confessing crimes they did not commit?
Check.

Increasing the National debt to the tune of Trillions of dollars by begging money from countries not allied with our national interests?
Check.

Deregulating every possible business to help maximize profits and minimize safe guards?
Check.

The list is endless and it is so fucking shameful it should be a prime subject for investigation.
If you want a partial list of all of the transgressions of the Bush regime, let me point you to Hugh's List.

There are currently over Three Hundred and Eighty documented scandals that implicate the Bush administration.

Some of those include treason by it's definition.

I am sure that Mr. Obama is going to want to deal with the immediate problems at hand, which are legion.
I only hope that there are some who would try to not forget the recent past and decide that some rocks need to be turned over and some evil motherfuckers trying to hide under them would make great fishing bait.

"Age Hurt McCain More Than Race Hurt Obama"

I heard that three times tonight out of the mouth of Brian Williams.He went out of his way and repeated the question twice.
Two fucking hours and the race factor is out there on N fucking BC.
Fucking assholes.

You motherfuckers never give up, do ya?

Update, Tim Russell is still dead.

His fucking kid has already been anointed as the next upcoming Partisan MSM garbage transfer specialist who is guaranteed a fat Right wing welfare check because his father ain't here to see the price of his house go in the fucking toilet and his Dad was the face of the MSM right wing cheerleader squad.
When Tom Brokaw just got all teary eyed about Tim not being here and getting all nostalgic about some autographed mug he got from PunkinHead,and was going to go have a beer in and Brian Williams telling him to call a cab, I threw up in my mouth.

I am desperately hoping the media gets a double dose of Syrup of Ipecac.

Look it up and remember, I am an Ornery Bastard.

Relax Tony

Sorry, youse guys in da Supreme Court don't gotta have to get up this time.

Barack Obama is the President elect of the United States of America.
It wasn't even close.

They called it ONE MINUTE after the polls closed on the West Coast.

We Shall See

Well, I just voted, man was that tough.

Fill out the card, put it in the envelope and drop it in the box.

Ya gotta love the mail in ballot system.
I didn't mail it though, they have a special box right downtown next to the Elections office, ya just drive up and toss it in, done.
None of this waiting in line for fucking hours bullshit.


This is the way to go.

Oh, I almost forgot,

FUCK DIEBOLD!

Is He Ready To Lead?

For those who have constantly thrown that question out there as a gotcha question?
Fuck You.
There it is. The mans Grandmother died today, one fucking day before the election of a generation, an election that will either show him to be the President elect or the Also Ran.

He knew it was coming and that is why he took the time to quit campaigning and go to her side.

My sincerest condolences.

I can empathize with the man, seriously.
My Grandmothers were a huge part of my life.

Today, he stayed out on the campaign trail.
Do you have any idea what he is going through?
Any idea how badly he would have loved to talk to her tomorrow?

If anyone thinks he does not have what it takes to work under pressure, there is your proof.
If he actually wins the nomination tomorrow, one of his first official duties will be presiding over the funeral one his closest lifetime advisers, his Grandmother.

He still has to find time and a way to grieve while he concludes his campaign, one way or another.
That has to be the toughest job he will ever undertake.

Because No One Could Have Forseen....

After eight years of the lawless Bush administration, everything from torture to shredding the Constitution to the current economic meltdown, on top of how many of us felt the last election was stolen, you would think that election officials just might have anticipated a very large turnout of voters this year.
You would be mistaken;

Millions of voters will encounter an unfamiliar low-tech landscape at the polls on Tuesday. About half of all voters will vote in a way that is different from what they did in the last presidential election, and most will use paper ballots rather than the touch-screen machines that have caused concern among voting experts.




But the change does not guarantee a smooth election day, as the nation’s voting system remains untested for what is expected to be an unprecedented turnout. Six years after the largest federal overhaul in how elections are run, voting experts are still predicting machine and ballot shortages in several swing states and late tallies on election night.


snipped from the NYT times article here.

We have already seen votes getting flipped, purges of voter rolls and every other dirty trick the Republicans can think of to skew the results of this election in their favor.

This shit needs to stop.
Voting is the duty of every American citizen and when you have unreliable voting machines and political parties bent on denying the basic right to vote to the citizens of this country, then the problem needs to be addressed through the courts and ultimately through Congress.

Whenever illegal activities are discovered in this area there should be severe penalties and lengthy jail terms handed out to send the message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated.

I don't have the answers but it is serious enough that it should be thoroughly investigated and permanent fixes applied so that the right to register and vote becomes sacrosanct, again, like it should be.

Then the voting process needs to be Nationalized to ensure conformity.
No more willy nilly ,every county picks a method of voting, one system that is tamper proof for everyone.
