Things that make you go Hmmmm.

It's been a while, mainly because things are so horrendous now and people are in such denial that I wouldn't even know where to begin. But something happened not too long ago that I feel I must mention. I hadn't heard anybody bring this up until I actually went looking for it so please don't think this is something I am just falling in line with.

I am perplexed at the destruction of the CO2 monitoring satellite Feb 24 2009. I did some checking and found very few instances of failures to launch by the major space nations. I found an Echostar satellite that failed in Mar of '08 and two European sea launched (yes, sea launched) satellites that were NOGOs in Jan of '07 and Mar '00. Bringing the sum total of satellites lost that I could find to three. And, I might add, that the two European ones were launched from converted Norwegian oil drilling rigs and the Echostar launch was from Kazakhstan. Now I'm not saying that the Norwegians and Kazakhstanies aren't some of the foremost thinkers in the world of space exploration, and I have complete confidence in their abilities, but this very important CO2 monitor took off from an Air Force base in California. A place, that I can only surmise, has a pretty good idea of what they are doing.

So "What are you getting at?" you may ask. The answer is, I don't know. It just seems odd to me that the only satellite launch failure I can find in recent American history happened to carry the only proof as to whether or not the religion of environmentalism is telling the truth. You all know I think it's bullshit and this would have proven me wrong once and for all. I actually wish that launch had been successful. But now they are saying we will have to wait another ten years (and four Al Gore books) to get our answers.

OK, so lot's to talk about.

First off we have
No riots, no looting, no bitching, no blaming. Just playing with the hand they are dealt. Ray-Ray Nagin take note please.
The illustrious UN launched its "largest ever aid appeal" of over 7 billion dollars to be spent willy nilly across Africa and, get this, Iraq even after the billions we've dumped into the economy and infrastructure there. The Un (and yes I mean Un not UN because they seem to undo shit that works world wide) is worried that the global economic crisis will stifle "humanitarian funding in 2009" so rather than keeping out own countries afloat we should dump money into warlords and corrupt governments. Got it. Speaking of corruption...,2933,454191,00.html That there buys a whole lot of bowls of rice.
Al Qaida's number two honcho called Barrack Hussein a "house negro". Personally I love this story. There were celebrations, as I predicted, in the streets of the major Muslim cities around the world and mainstream Muslims love him but, also as I predicted, the hard line Muslims hate him. Leaving the Islam is punishable by death and I don't care what Hoos says, he was born a Muslim (if nothing else due to the fact his father was Muslim) and that to the Islamists is no good at all. I recall an incident a year or so ago where a guy was beheaded for leaving the faith.,22606,24684272-912,00.html?from=public_rss
And in a final bit of insanity we go to Egypt where 400 teens were arrested for flirting. The report goes on to say that they are cracking down on "sexual harassment" so I'm not exactly sure how flirting applies to that but anyway, there is the story.

Celebrate good times COME ON!

OK so many people have ragged on me that I was wrong about the riotous celebrations I expected to see when Barack Hussein won. Did we see mass pandemonium like I expected? No. What we did see was the poorest, most dilapidated, and most violent inner cities turn into a free for all of people hooting and hollering, crowding streets, and all in all turning the the most important day in American politics into a world series championship party. I'll take that over riots any day and here it is... I was wrong.
In my search for various "Unity and Change" style... events that took place that night, I really wanted to get to the meat of the experience. Being that I myself did not partake in the revelry I must rely on first hand accounts and video testimony. Therefor, I have compiled a very small selection of celebration footage for you to enjoy. I will bring to your attention any special quotes or events of note... free of charge.

OK this is in LA on the infamous Crenshaw Blvd.

Q: Do you feel now the change now between the blacks, the whites, the Hispanics, and everyone?"
A: I feel, I feel it's gonna come right. It's gonna come right. We got a black president so it's gonna come right.
Wow, just like that. Racial equality in America and the end to bigotry. Man, Obama is special.

Q: "Why did you vote for Obama? Give me a concise, a lot of people say 'it's because he's black', why did you vote for Obama?"
A: "I voted for Obama because it's time for a change. The Republicans ain't doing nothin' (unintelligible gibberish) time for them to get up in here so, it's time for a change. Barack Obama '08"
Indeed. Change huh? Concise enough for you?

Q: "How do you feel about Obama?"
A: "Oh I love Obama! I love him! (Unintelligible gibberish) He gonna save us he gonna save us that's a(and it sounds here like she says "a black thing") but I wouldn't want to put words into her mouth.

Q: "Now you voted for him... why did you vote?"
A: "I voted for him because, I know it's, I voted for him was so how much the country has matured. It's not even about him just being black, it's just the point that our country has left everything in the past (agreed) all the negativity the whole black thing is out. It's basically change, that's all we need it change. That's what it is."
Again change. Any specifics or... perhaps a plan or some sort of insight as to which of his changed up policies you really liked or was it just sort of change in general?

Now if I'm not mistaken the narrator here calls Michelle Obama the Vice President at 3:33... I could be off.

When speaking to a man who said it was his first time voting the narrator asks;
Q: "What made you vote besides him being a black man?"
A: I'm a black man I think we've been in this economy so long man I think it's time for a change."
Again that word... hell if I had known it would have been so easy to get elected on a word and no plan I would have run for senate by now. Do any one of these people have a clue as to what he wants to do beyond the word "change"?

Here is a very special quote that I feel we all must hear and let soak in for a while to get the full effect...
"As you see Obama has changed a lot for futures. Even, we heard, drug addicts that never voted, voted from rehab. We heard alcoholics that never voted, voted."
Take it in. Allow the words to fill you. I'll give you a second. Breathe in through the nose... out through the mouth. Is it soaked in? Good.

Q: "Ma'am, how do you feel?"
A" "OBAMA!!!!!!!"
Not exactly an answer but OK.

Q: "Obama said that he's having McCain help him get America back together. How do you feel about that?"
A" "I feel that Obama has it all in his orchestra so he don't need McCain because McCain is old and he's sick and he don't need his help. Obama got it. It's all in his plan."
All in his plan? And people get offended when I call him the "Savior" and talk about his election as the second coming. It's all in Obama's plan. He don't need no McCain.

Now if you want people to take your candidate seriously, you need to be interviewing more people like the guy at 13:56.

Q: "Obama won how do you feel?"
A" "Blessed. Blessed. Democracy worked. I made my vote count. God is good."
That pretty much sums up the way America works. One group on election day feels blessed, one feels damned, but we are all proud that we live in a Democracy (A Republic really but I won't split hairs here) and that our votes count. No talk of an ethereal concept of change, just thankfulness for the process that we have in America. The girl on right after at 14:03 has it too.
"I think this is an amazing opportunity... It's not just about (him being black). It's about health care, it's about war in Iraq, it's about all these issues that, he just so happens to be black. That's the icing on the cake if you will." While I think his health care stance and Iraq ideas are devastating to America at least she mentions them. Honestly I doubt she really knows much about them but at least she shows the wherewithal to mention them.

"I feel excellent, I know that this is an achievement not just for Barack Obama but for black people!... Because unless black people struggle we will not have the kind of society he has promised us."
First off so much for this not being a race thing. Nearly everybody interviewed mentioned race but we already knew it was a huge race deal. Secondly, did I miss something? The society he promised us? I'm I guess extrapolating that by "us" she means black people because that is who she was previously talking about but I don't recall Obama saying anything officially about promising "black society" anything.

Now from 14:58 to 17:45 there are some pretty good, solid interviews. Many people with some well thought out ideas. A couple with just "Change" but on the whole that bit is alright. Watch it. You'll like it.

However they end it with

Q: "Why did you personally vote for Obama, besides him being black?" Nice
A: "Because he got a plan and because he's for the youth."
Narrator: "You heard it right here. Obama has a plan and he's here for the youth." Wow, that's overwhelming.

Q: "What made you actually vote?"
A: "'Cuz I wanted change."

Q: "The reason that you voted for Barack Obama was it for a change or was because he's a black man?" Solid journalism there by the way.
A: "It was for a change." Well, you had a 50/50 chance on that one.


My favorite part of this is the song you hear towards the end. For clarification I have added a link to the lyrics. This, by the way, is being hailed as "The New Nation anthem." Nice.

And here's another song in support of Mr. Obama

And just so you know I'm making a statement about Obama supporters in general, not based on any one color, here is a nice Mardi Gras/ running of the bulls style celebration in Chicago. Not even when Slick Willy was elected did we have stuff like this. The guy filming this was sure to focus in on the one or two American flags seen at this presidential election party. The Star Spangled Banner was a nice touch. I wonder when the last time any of them sang that particular song before this? Nice how patriotism comes out only when they win. And I can't tell for sure but it looks like they put a picture of Barack's face on a statue of Jesus... How appropriate.

I guess all in all I have the sinking feeling that the entire country is going to look like this under him. The same way Bill Clinton turned the White House into a double wide, Barack Obama will turn it into some block party and I think the lemmings that put on these little shows will carry it over into their daily lives. All we can hope for is that the presidential handlers get a hold of him before he can do too much damage. If they do and Mr. Obama acts just like every other president then there are going to be a LOT of pissed off idiots who believed him when he said he was going to do all this amazing stuff. If he does follow through with what he promised then we are pretty much done as a country anyway so all this is academic. Either way he'll get re-elected because even if he fails miserably, which my money says he will, he has already set the stage as to why he will fail miserably and will convince people that even with the house and senate in his pocket, he will require another four years to make America a proper haven for the lazy and the the stupid. God bless America

Executive orders

Well it seems that our new man in the White House already has a game plan for the first few days he becomes the MFIC. First he is doing something actually good which will stop the ban on stem cell research. 'Bout time. It's ridiculous not to use what we can to make life better. Never agreed with the ban and never will.

Mr. Obama will also reverse the decision to drill for oil and gas in some areas, specifically Utah. I'm calling it now... $10.00/ gallon in three years if he goes through with all his plans as he has stated them. If he takes out off-shore drilling, shale drilling, Utah, and ANWR off the table, that pretty much puts us out of the game. Back to the locker room we go.

Now Reid, Pelosi, and other Dems are pushing for a bailout of the automakers as well as banks and insurance companies... Why not? Let's see if we can break the one trillion mark for free shit to companies who can't manage their own finances? Add that to the bailout that they want to give people who can't pay their mortgage, lovingly nursed by Hoos' new Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, we should pretty much have government money into everybody's pocket except mine oddly enough. See I'm not behind on my mortgage and I, being self-employed at my whopping 60 grand or so a year won't qualify for much of what he wants to give away. And the FICA tax he loves so much will continue to empty my pockets and go into somebody Else's who doesn't want to work.

And let's talk about Rahm Emanuel for a second. The ballet major turned "tough guy" senator from Chicago is not known for working "across party lines", the regurgitated mantra of The Chosen One for the past two years. He was appointed to the board of currently in the tank Freddie Mac, by Bill Clinton in 2000, where he served with... distinction? Dishonor? And a cute little factoid I didn't know is that Barack Hussein Obama got the second highest campaign contributions from Fannie and Freddie out of any senator from 1989-2008. Not bad for only being in the senate for two years. I guess that good enough to get a Chief of Staff position.

Actually, now that I think about it, Emanuel goes great with The honorable Governor Jennifer Granholm of the one state recession that is the great state of Michigan, sitting on his economic advisory team. Crooked board member of a failed multi-billion dollar entity, Crooked governor of a recently failed state... not bad. I can't wait to see who he picks as treasury secretary.

Conngrats Mr. President

So, the world rejoices at the second coming.

First there is the ever even-keeled Ahmadinejad offering his good wishes to our new (ahem) president,

Now our dear expansionary allies to the West want an "early" meeting with Mr. Obama.

Hamas has extended the congratulations to our Commander in Chief

A quick little blurb about good ol' Fidel congratulating the big man

Here's a little pre-election endorsement I missed. I'm sure a hearty pat on the back would have come from Kim Jong Il if he didn't have one foot in the grave at the moment.

Let's see who else... Ah i would be remiss if I didn't mention the distinguished gentleman from Venezuela Senior Hugo Chavez

How about Syria

Good job Mr. President. You have ingratiated the United States to pretty much every dictatorship, totalitarian, and terrorist backing government on the planet. That is overwhelming to say the least.

On to other news. It would seem that The Savior will now throw a bone to the extremely important world player of Kenya, his birth... excuse me, ancestral, home.

He recently named the esteemed governor of my home state of Michigan to his economic advisory board. I don't even know what to say to this... She has destroyed that state. I mean seriously... I just don't even know what to say. Michigan is so far in the hole right now. I actually can't... yes, yes I can believe he put her on his economic advisory team. Michigan has been known as the "One state recession" for years and he puts her... Jesus, never mind.

Tom Brokaw and Charlie Rose, two of Obama's biggest choad lickers for the previous two years, started to cover their asses not too long ago, by saying that they really aren't sure what, exactly, they know about Mr. Obama.

I had more but I'm really tired... I leave you with this. How do you think things will pan out in a year when he has both Jewish leaders who supported him, and the Nation of Islam and Hamas, all vying for his attention? How will he keep labor unions in his pocket when the taxes he wants to levy will force companies to fire loads of people? These are all mutually excluding. Hamas and the JDL cannot have the same Patron for long.

Thank God I'm out of the Army... I'd rather go to prison than serve under That One.

Rev 18:10

The Hollow Men
T.S. Eliot

Mistah Kurtz -- he dead.

A penny for the Old Guy


We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us -- if at all -- not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.


Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death's dream kingdom
These do not appear:
There, the eyes are
Sunlight on a broken column
There, is a tree swinging
And voices are
In the wind's singing
More distant and more solemn
Than a fading star.

Let me be no nearer
In death's dream kingdom
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises
Rat's coat, crowskin, crossed staves
In a field
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer --

Not that final meeting
In the twilight kingdom


This is the dead land
This is cactus land
Here the stone images
Are raised, here they receive
The supplication of a dead man's hand
Under the twinkle of a fading star.

Is it like this
In death's other kingdom
Waking alone
At the hour when we are
Trembling with tenderness
Lips that would kiss
Form prayers to broken stone.


The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

Sightless, unless
The eyes reappear
As the perpetual star
Multifoliate rose
Of death's twilight kingdom
The hope only
Of empty men.


Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pear prickly pear
Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o'clock in the morning.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow

For Thine is the Kingdom

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow

Life is very long

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow

For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is
Life is
For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

The Big One

Well, we are two weeks out from our next presidential election and unless something miraculous happens Barack Hussein Obama will be our next commander in chief. There are only two ways that I can see that it won't happen.
1.) The fact that he is not an American citizen is finally accepted. And for you doubters ask yourself why he hasn't given any proof at all of his citizenship.
2.) The leftists think they have the election so in the bag they don't even bother to go out to vote.
I have to give it up to Hoos, he did some amazing shit out on the campaign trail. He is so good at what he does that, and this is a doozy, I read about the oldest American voter overseas who is a hundred-and-something nun living in the Vatican who is voting for him. When a man who supports third trimester abortions gets the nod from a dare I said "old-school" nun in the Vatican... well what can I say about that? You simply can't fight that.
I was listening to local radio guy named Tom Martino who does a consumer advice show here in Denver today. Generally he isn't that political as far as I know and if I had to put money on it I would say he is an Obama supporter. Anyway, he was talking to a lady recently about acne treatments or some such thing and the lady said she wasn't worried about her son's acne because once Obama is elected it will go away.

I suppose the case could be made that the kid is so stressed out about the election that that is the reason for the acne and once it's all over and done it will clear up but I don't think that is where she was going with this. Again, how can you fight a guy who can not only balance the budget, end war, fix health care, "lower" taxes, AND cure acne... Man.

So here are my predictions for the Obama presidency.

1) If there is a clear winner election night there will be "celebrations" involving looting and burning things major cities across the US. If it is drawn out then all will be well due to the attention span of the average American. And, I should add as an aside, if he does loose God have mercy because this entire country will look like L.A. post Rodney King.

2) There will be celebrations in the streets in Damascus, Riyadh, Tehran, "Palestine", Paris, and Pyongyang. Sharia-ville, AKA London may also have some too.

3) As the taxes go up for all those rich $250k/yr people and small businesses, they will start laying off pushing unemployment to new heights. The government will start dumping tons of money into the economy pushing inflation up. The good thing is all those newly unemployed people will have some top notch social programs to fall back on.

4) Once in office he will learn that it is not a simple as invading Pakistan and now that Iraq is relatively calm he will pull troops out of Iraq to try and sure-up Afghanistan, setting us back years in Iraq.

5) Once the tax breaks for the "Exxon/Mobile's" are taken away gas prices will go way up to compensate.

6) He will "look at" things like off-shore drilling but knowing his bread and butter is the far-left eco-nuts he won't do it. He will also shy away from nuclear, rather going for solar, tidal, and wind. Ultimately we will not be able to power the US with the sun or the oceans and we will continue to suck down oil just as much as before but his "attempts" will count for a lot in the minds of the left. After all it isn't easy being green.

7) He will be loved and cherished by other socialist leaders from around the world and America will soon fall to the same fate as most of Western Europe: ridiculous taxes, unchecked immigration, lose of national identity, and weakness (more so than we already are) in the eyes of those countries that would do us harm.

8) he will do his damnedest to take guns away from people. He will start by taking away assault weapons, then semi-autos. He will also try to limit where guns can be carried and stop imports of fire arms. If he can't do it through the front door he will take the California approach where some guns are fine but ammunition is illegal. Worse come to worse he will have the US join the UN's attempt to internationally ban personally owned fire arms. They use terms such as "illicit" but they are so loosely defined. Please read the Nairobi Protocol.

Pay special attention to ART 3 (a)(iii) It also requires nations to adopt "necessary legislative or other measures" to conform to UN rules, while of course not infringing on a nation-state's right a sovereignty. Pay very close attention to articles 5 and 7. Basically yeah, they do want to take guns away from people they don't deem necessary to have one. This a how Hoos will do it.

I have plenty of other predictions but I just got slammed and I have to go.
