Last week I posted a sports humor video and got lots of hits on it, so I can take a hint: Lighten up Joyanna, it’s Friday!
So, here is another great moment in sports: Titus is not out of diapers yet, and already a star. You will be amazed at how good this kid is, but who wouldn’t be with the whole family having so much fun?
For those of you who have been following the blog, you may have noticed the, always contentious arguments of amfortas and I. He being a proud British subject, loyal to the Queen, and me being the cantankerous American, loyal to my country, and my ancestors. We have often argued our case, neither one coming out the winner, although, we both give it a good try.
Sometimes I feel as if the revolution is still being fought. And yes, I am proud that Americans won against the great British empire, but amfortas doesn’t see it that way. To him, we were recalcitrant children—-spoiled and ungrateful brats.
But I had to laugh today, as I see, the attitude of the good amfortas was fostered not in this century, but in way back in 1705. Surprisingly, (or not) the attitudes of the good British citizen has not changed.
I was just reading about when I came upon Robert Beverley, an early historian of Virginia, who was asked by an English book dealer in 1703, to appraise the British Empire in America. Here’s some of what he had to say:
I can easily imagine that this, as well as all the rest of the plantations was for the most part first peopled by persons of low circumstances and by such as were willing to seek their fortunes in a foreign country. For its not likely that any man of a plentiful estate should voluntarily abandon a happy certainty to roam after imaginary adventures in an New World.
He goes on to explain that first, just the single men came over. And since it was such a hardship to get a woman that could “carry sufficient certificate of their modesty and good behavior” they ended up buying a wife at the price of 1oo pounds and hoping for a bargain.
And then he adds an explanation as to why the rather less than desirable British stock came over.
Thus in the time of the Rebellion in England, several good Cavalier families were thither with their effects to escape the tyranny of the usurper. And so again, upon the Restoration, many people of the opposite party took refuge there, to shelter themselves from the King’s resentments.
So, as it sometimes happens in every country more often than not, the King is rotten, and the poor citizens flee. America was a nation founded by people of “low circumstances” and I think that’s pretty much how amfortas sees me, as a commoner, lowly person on the lower end of caste, while he, on the other hand, is born of the higher bred of Royalty.
And, so…speaking from a DNA point of view, he is absolutely right.
He is proud of his British superiority, and well he should be. But I contend that some very great persons of very low circumstances, took the heritage that they got from the motherland, and made a glorious nation…although it is sinking fast.
Right now, both mother nation and her disobedient offspring are on the brink. While America has committed her amount of sins, Great Britain doesn’t have a clean slate either.
And so we remain, at a standstill. No doubt, we will carry the argument to our graves. Pointless, but never boring.
One of the complaints about John Adams, was that after he spent so many years in England as ambassador, when he came back to his own country, he was convinced that people WANTED to have the pomp and circumstance of Kings and Nobles, etc, and they made fun of him in Congress when he, as Vice President, wanted to call the office of the Presidency “His Royal Highness ” and other high sounding names.
The Congress mocked him, and put him in his place, thank God. All those years spent in Paris and England rubbed off. John was always trying to figure out political systems, and no doubt, since he was born in America, the whole European aristocratic system gave him lots to think about.
It might please amfortas to know that.
And so the fight goes on still: Should there always be a ruling class that knows better how to rule people? Or should, the persons of low circumstances, take back their lives from the aristocrats and oligarchs of the world?
And since there are no more free lands to run to, where do the lower circumstances go, and is it even possible for western civilization to join together once again to fight the upcoming war between Islam and Christianity?
Just wondering. Nobody Thinks, if we want to survive we must.
This week, we have the conservative rock of Fox News, Charles Krauthammer staying ON the talking point of, where exactly was the President of the United States during the Benghazi attack? Obama and his press lackeys want everyone to just ‘drop it.’
And that is why Eric Holder and Obama are trying to take control of the various scandals with the spin of, “Hey, We didn’t have anything to do with any of the scandals, so trust us, and let’s move FORWARD! To a new day! That’s all in the past, and we’ll fix it! Come to my meeting and I’ll answer your questions, you just can’t print them.”
And today we have seen, in a rare moment of sanity (or changing of the old guard to the ‘We want to get rid of Obama, and set up Hillary.’ mode) CNN, the New York Times, AND the Huffington Post refused to show up along with their rival, FOX NEWS.
So, several liberals reporters are siding with FOX.
It’s about time: Let’s see how long this lasts. I’m betting…at the most…a week.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t hear a radio commercial pleading for the American ‘conservative” to call their Congressmen and tell them to vote for the immigration bill, because it’s the ‘conservative’ thing to do.
There is nothing conservative about it. The continued mass invasion of our country, is NOT a good thing. The Gang of Eight have been working hard on this project, and Joe Biden said this today, to help them out:
“I believe in international relations, as in any relationship, it comes down to respect. Do we respect one another? And do we show respect? For my country, that means reforming our immigration system so the 11 million — 11 million — undocumented men, women and many children, who came through no choice of their own, can come out of the shadows and be full participants in American life because they are already in many cases participating and contributing to the growth and prosperity of my country, but required to constantly live in fear and live in the shadows,” he said, as posted on the White House Office of the Vice President’s website.
Come out of the shadows? WHAT shadows? They go to our schools, collect our welfare, get American jobs. They get more ‘respect’ than the average American citizen. In many cases, they are getting college educations on top of welfare and food stamps.
Here’s how one Nobody, who goes by the name of olderandwiser49guy commented about the subject on WND:
On the subject of illegal aliens, there are currently over 50 million people of Latin descent in America, 32 million of whom are from Mexico. Of that 32 million, over 18 million are here directly as a result of illegal entry. Only 25 years ago, Mexican citizens represented 3% of the US population, but now represent over 10%. Of the estimated 11 million new Hispanics in this country added between 2000 and 2010, over 7 million were new births. These illegal’s didn’t come seeking asylum. They came to become citizens the easy way-by Congressional edict. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is an arm of Congress, and they prepare well-researched reports to Congress. What does it say about our Congressmen when their own people are telling them that legalizing 11 million illegal’s will ultimately cost the American people $6.7 Trillion, and our Congressmen still continue in their quest to pass this bill? A condition of the 1986 Amnesty was the securing of the borders, and we see how well that was done. Yet, they are once again trying to peddle this atrocious piece of vote-buying legislation on the promise of “future” border security. And why has nothing been said about properly defining the “Anchor Baby” law, excluding any baby born to anyone here illegally or on a temporary or work visa? Our Congress is as complicit in the assured destruction of this country as is our illegal Resident in the White House and our bobble-headed Vice President. I love my country, but I am thoroughly disgusted with every smug, conceited, and pompous dilettante currently holding an elected or appointed office in the District of Corruption.
Yes, olderandwise49guy gets the Nobody’s Better than Most Somebodies award for the week!
Well said olderandwise49guy. If only YOU were VP.
JUST what Obama was doing on the night of the Benghazi attacks, and because Obama has seen fit to not reveal his whereabouts, and is having everyone insist that he ‘went to bed,’ and missed everything that night, he has nobody but himself to blame for the upcoming speculation that is going to drive the liberals mad.
And I say: Let’s drive them crazy. Let’s speculate every single thing until somebody tells us.
Let’s see…mmmm…What do we know about Obama? Obama did a lot of drugs in his lifetime, and the drug cocaine was his favorite by his own admission, although he tried them all. Anyone who has every known ANYONE who has done cocaine, knows that it’s harder to quit than cigarettes. Most cocaine users never get off of it.
Judging by his cocky, narcissistic personally, and thin energy, he physically looks like Reggie is keeping him in good supply.
Also Obama…LOVES to party. He stays up all night with his homeboys at the White House: Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dog, Beyonce’, Reggie Love..
Yes, Reggie Love was bound to come up. Obama spends more time with Reggie than he does his own wife. And so, since Obama has told his minions to tell everyone that what he was doing during Benghazi was ‘irrelevant”, one journalist had the sheer guts to speculate what Obama was doing, due to the circumstantial evidence of just knowing the man:
Here’s what Kevin Dujan, (a gay conservative) said:
“While our consulate in Benghazi was attacked during the night of September 11 of last year, our fearless leader was allegedly hiding away somewhere getting “high as a kite” on cocaine. ”
This is the speculation of Kevin DuJan, a self-described “gay conservative political analyst” writing for a publication called HillBuzz. DuJan states that his claim, which he appears to make based on knowledge and experience of drug addicts, explains the president being missing for most of the evening during the attack on Benghazi.
Yes, it takes one to know one, and just the fact someone dare suggest that the liberal’s hero, Obama: first baloney Grand Buba of the nation— was a drug addict, is just too much for them.
This came from the liberal Wonkette:
We don’t know about you, but the idea of Obama being a 70s-style coke whore hanging out at modern-day bacchanalia does not make us love him less. It just wants to make us hang out with him more. Sorry conservatives. Thanks Obama!
And it’s true, they would.
More than likely, Obama was there, and gave the order to the military to stand down, in order to keep quiet his illegal gun running. Only Obama could have given that order.
And then he went and did coke and had sex with Reggie.
Hey, a good sex scandal covers up an international drug running scandal any old day of the week!
Just ask, Bill Clinton. He perfected it.
Hey, I’m just tired of looking at my old blog. I want a new drug…one that won’t make me sick, as Huey Lewis would say.
So, I found this one, and if nobody likes it let me know because I can change it right away
This week, we have two very special young men who forgot, that they no longer can say what they think. It’s now becoming almost an epidemic among the young and old, this speaking out against our government, and is causing our benevolent government, who only wish to protect and defend us, quite a headache.
We saw in my last post that a young soldier talked against the military on FACEBOOK, and got put into a mental institution. Last month, Larry Conners, a veteran news reporter in St. Louis, was fired because he posted on his FACEBOOK page the fact that he was audited after he interviewed Obama.
So you see, people are really getting sloppy about speaking their mind about their government on social media outlets, and while our astute government can’t keep their eye on every terrorist, it does catch some of them.
Yes, FACEBOOK users beware; If you have to be a moron and speak against the government, better keep it off of FACEBOOK. (Write an obscure blog like me!)
First: Patrick Brown, was using his intellect and his social media skills to invoke conversation among his fellow students as to how to solve the spending problems in their schools: And for that crime, he was suspended for three days.
A high-school student in upstate New York has been suspended and accused of trying to incite “a social media riot” after he suggested budget cuts for his public school – beginning with elimination of his principal’s job. Then Brown said, “I was called down to the office and told I was being suspended for harassment of teachers, [while] no harassment was ever committed.”
Students and Twitter users posted ideas for to save money, including the following:
- “Cinema, I’m sorry, but really, you pay a teacher to have kids watch movies?”
- “Anime club”
The Supreme Court ruled in 1969 that students have a right to self-expression, as long as that expression doesn’t disrupt class work or school activities or invade the rights of others.
Yes, Patrick was disrupting class work, he took precious time away from the classes. Students and teachers were actually starting to THINK about something other than Porky’s Three. And this was in clear violation of the right of the principal to get paid more than most of the property tax payers in his district, for doing nothing more than showing up and monitoring the young student girl’s skirts on camera. That is really hard and demanding work, and he deserves every dollar he makes.
Second: Cameron D’Ambrosio, a rapper who wants to be famous but lacks in frontal lobe development, (see video below) made the mistake of bragging how much damage he would do to…well just about everybody.
A wannabe, self-publishing rapper was arrested after publishing lyrics on his facebook profile that contained the line, “a boston bombinb wait till u see the sh– I do.” (I deleted the expletive). The loathsome 18-year-old Cameron D’Ambrosio has been held in jail since his arrest on May 1. Bail was initially set at $1 million, which was effectively the same as denying bail altogether.
As the author points out:
Funny, I can’t remember any real terrorists posting threats on the web in their own names when anyone could look up and visit their residences. Dangerous people don’t let you know they’re coming. I’m old enough to remember 2 Live Crew and their graphic lyrics about assaulting women. Not only were they never convicted of threatening anyone—despite the fact that rape culture in Hip Hop is a far more common reality in the US than terrorist attacks—but their rap “music” was legally sold in stores and no state was allowed to restrain it on First Amendment grounds. There few legal troubles only served to publicize their album.
So, the ignorant young rapper, was just being a rapper, and talking shit. This guy couldn’t hurt a turtle on a roadway. We have heard stronger statements coming out of famous liberals, like: “All tea party people should die! Rush Limbaugh should die! Glenn Beck should die! etc., etc., ” I’m sure you remember all the nasty comments about Sarah Palin. Liberals can threatened anyone, and nobody is arrested.
Frankly, this stoned out kid, who obviously is very scared of someone in his high school, made the mistake of mentioning the Boston Bombing. If he had threaten to bomb Fox News Headquarters, he be a free man. He’s be the next star on American Idol.
The man who posted a video against Islam was arrested. But as far as we know, the many artists who portray Jesus as a turd…are having cappuccino’s in the Hampton’s with Barbara Walters.
You would THINK people would learn: You cannot just say anything anymore, unless you’re Joe Biden.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Isn’t it obvious? Our current Nazi Obama government, who have thrown away our 1st amendment rights. In Obama’s America, you are guilty until proven innocent, unless of course, you work for the government.
And now, for you entertainment: Here’s some of Cam’s video’s. Try not to laugh…remember— Thank Obama for taking this dangerous man off the streets.
This is disturbing. It’s still Memorial Day here, and I think it’s important to remember that after our soldiers come home, they should NOT be arrested for their opinions.
This soldier was, and put in a mental hospital for something he said on Facebook.
Really? Like I said…disturbing. Facebook is being used as a Gestapo tool by the Obama administration. And all the liberal hippies who screamed about Nixon during the sixties, are silent.
I’ll post more about this tomorrow.
I’m not doing my usual today, because it’s a day where we all reflect on the men and women who have given their lives for their country. And also….a day to EAT! barbeque! While we are remembering those that gave their lives for America’s right for freedom, and liberty. God bless them all, and their families.
Everybody have a great holiday!
(Thanks to J.R. )
Don’t know if it’s true but it could easily be. In any event it’s a good lesson for us all>
As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of groceries towards my car, I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a lady sitting inside the car, with the door open. The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car, and continued to watch the old gentleman from about twenty-five feet away.
I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming too, and took a few steps towards him.
I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something. The young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac Escalade. He then turned back to the old man. I heard him yell at the old gentleman saying: ‘You shouldn’t even be allowed to drive a car at your age.’ And then with a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking lot.
I saw the old gentleman pull out his handkerchief, and mop his brow as he went back to his car and again looked at the engine. He then went to his wife and spoke with her; he appeared to tell her it would be okay. I had seen enough, and I approached the old man. He saw me coming and stood straight, and as I got near him I said, ‘Looks like you’re having a problem.’
He smiled sheepishly, and quietly nodded his head. I looked under the hood myself, and knew that whatever the problem was, it was beyond me. Looking around, I saw a gas station up the road, and I told the old man that I would be right back. I drove to the station and went inside. I saw three attendants working on cars. I approached one of them, and related the problem the old man had with his car. I offered to pay them if they could follow me back down and help him. The old man had pushed the heavy car under the shade of a tree and appeared to be comforting his wife. When he saw us he straightened up and thanked me for my help. As the mechanics diagnosed the problem (overheated engine), I spoke with the old gentleman.
When I shook hands with him earlier, he had noticed my Marine Corps ring and had commented about it, telling me that he had been a Marine too. I nodded and asked the usual question, ‘What outfit did you serve with?’
He said that he served with the first Marine Division at Guadalcanal, Pelieliu, and Okinawa . He had hit three of the worst ones, and retired from the Corps after the war was over. As we talked we heard the car engine come on and saw the mechanics lower the hood. They came over to us as the old man reached for his wallet, but was stopped by me. I told him I would just put the bill on my AAA card.
He still reached for the wallet and handed me a card that I assumed had his name and address on it, and I stuck it in my pocket. We all shook hands all around again, and I said my goodbye’s to his wife.
I then told the two mechanics that I would follow them back up to the station. Once at the station, I told them that they had interrupted their own jobs to come along with me and help the old man. I said I wanted to pay for the help, but they refused to charge me. One of them pulled out a card from his pocket, looking exactly like the card the old man had given to me. Both of the men told me then that they were Marine Corps Reserves. Once again we shook hands all around and as I was leaving, one of them told me I should look at the card the old man had given to me. I said I would and drove off.
For some reason I had gone about two blocks, when I pulled over and took the card out of my pocket and looked at it for a long, long time. The name of the old gentleman was on the card in golden leaf and under his name was written: ‘Congressional Medal of Honor Society.’ I sat there motionless, looking at the card and reading it over and over. I looked up from the card and smiled to no one but myself and marveled that on this day, four Marines had all come together because one of us needed help. He was an old man all right, but it felt good to have stood next to greatness and courage, and an honor to have been in his presence.
Remember, as we approach another Memorial Day, OLD men like him gave you, and all of us, FREEDOM for America.
Thanks to those who served and still serve, and to all of those who supported them, and who continue to support them. America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall.
If you don’t stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them! Remember, Freedom isn’t Free. Thousands have paid the price, so that you can enjoy what you have today.
LET’S DO THIS: JUST 19 WORDS: GOD OUR FATHER, WALK THROUGH MY HOUSE AND TAKE AWAY ALL MY WORRIES; AND PLEASE WATCH OVER AND HEAL MY FAMILY; AND PLEASE PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS, AND WATCH OVER OUR TROOPS, WHO ARE DEFENDING THOSE FREEDOMS.
AMEN! This prayer is so powerful. Pass this prayer to 12 people, including me.
Samsung is getting lots of complaints that this ad is sexist. Frankly, I don’t see how. I have SEEN men when they decide to take over the women chores. They do it in half the time, and they do it quicker, mostly so they can go back to watching TV. Pretty much like this guy. Any women with half a brain should never compete with a man when it comes to “who does it better?”
Do men act clueless? Was Bill Cosby right? They pretend they don’t know how to fold clothes?
Of course, they did make this guy look pretty disgusting….so in all fairness they should do with the girl, sitting in front of the TV, in old ugly flannel pajama’s painting her toenails, and talking on the cellphone, and then when he puts an update into her, she immediately builds a back porch, puts in a swimming pool, gets the old car running, mows the lawn, fixes the kids bikes, and then takes out the trash, all the while barbecuing next week’s dinners.
What do YOU think?
Summer’s coming, and the full moon is at swing in Sweden, where about 200 Muslim youths crying “Allahu Akhbar,” set cars on fire, and threw rocks at the police. They evidently are not ‘blending’ in to the skiing, hot tub, and take a blond to a fish dinner, environment.
According to European Union statistics, an estimated 574,000 Muslims lived in Sweden in 2012, making up 6.05 percent of the population, compared to 1998, when there were 284,000 Muslims, or 3.21 percent of the total population.
The EU currently estimates that at current rates of growth, the Muslim population will reach 40 percent of the total population in Sweden by 2030. While Sweden does not keep welfare statistics specifically for Muslims, experts estimate from available government welfare statistics on the foreign-born that somewhere between 70 and 80 percent of Sweden’s welfare payments go to Muslims, with the percentage on the rise.
So, remember that all you cookie cutter liberals. The next time you hear Obama talk about how America is a Muslim nation—don’t be surprised if one day, coming out of your yoga class you see your car on fire, and remember, instead of getting mad that some radical Muslim blew up your car, be ready to shout, “I LOVE OBAMA!”
Or else, you might suspected for being a tea party conservative for even getting mad about it.
And then…you would be in REAL trouble.
It’s been reported that the IRS scandals started in Cincinnati.
We now know why. Evidently, there is something happening in the drinking water.
The bodies hadn’t even been counted before the Democrats started yelling, “Global warming!” on the floor of Congress. As you see in the above video, Senator Whitehouse (Come on…tell me that is NOT his real name.) lashes out at the Republicans for destroying the world.
Last week’s tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, as powerful as it was, was nothing compared to the one in 1925. Remember 1925? The SUV was just a dream in some mechanic’s pillowcase.
Deadliest single tornado in US history
The Tri-State Tornado of March 18, 1925 killed 695 people in Missouri (11), Illinois (613), and Indiana (71). The outbreak it occurred with was also the deadliest known tornado outbreak, with a combined death toll of 747 across the Mississippi River Valley.
It lasted a good 3 and a half hours. Would Senator Whitehouse admit that that tornado could NOT have been caused by global warming? No, because we all know he’s a liberal and no doubt sleeps with global warming bimbo’s, who paint his toenails.
But hey, let’s go back to an even earlier time…1896.
Most damaging tornado
Similar to fatalities, damage (and observations) of a tornado are a coincidence of what character of tornado interacts with certain characteristics of built up areas. That is, destructive tornadoes are in a sense “accidents” of a large tornado striking a large population. In addition to population and changes thereof, comparing damage historically is subject to changes in wealth and inflation. The St. Louis-East St. Louis Tornado of May 27, 1896 incurred the most damages adjusted for wealth and inflation, at an estimated $2.9 billion (1997 USD). In raw numbers, the Joplin Tornado of May 22, 2011 is considered the costliest tornado in recent history, with damage totals near $2.8 billion (2011 USD). Until 2011, the “Oklahoma City Tornado” of May 3, 1999 was the most damaging.
So, tornadoes and hurricanes have been around longer than bedbugs, and most people find it appalling that the Senator would even talk about this after all the sadness of that day.
Nobody Wonders most of all: After Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, Congress ran to the floor and voila— Chris Christie got his $60 million dollars of Hurricane Sandy relief, most of which did not get to the victims because it was filled with pork for other government projects completely unrelated to the hurricane.
Is Congress going to come to the rescue of the poor people in Oklahoma?
Where’s Bruce Springsteen? Bon Jovi? Where’s Barbara Streisand? Robert Redford? To me, the damage from this tornado was MUCH worse. But the Congress is silent.
Obama is going to take his bow (excuse me…photo op) on Sunday in Moore, Oklahoma, and might be forced to “promise” help to those poor people who lost their homes, but…don’t be surprised to hear him suggest that its global warming that is causing the storms.
Global warming is a big lie. BUT…weather manipulation is not. While man can’t even begin to imitate Mother Nature, he can and does try to manipulate it.
Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 – (Research paper presented to the United States Air Force)
“Weather modification offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary… Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather… and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of military technologies.”
He CAN make a small hurricane or tornado into a larger one. (Not that Mother Nature needs any help.)
He has the technology to cause earthquakes. And most of those fires you are seeing in California every year, are arson. And the more disasters we have, the better for Al Gore’s dream of taking control of the planet with carbon taxes, and buying up even more homes to run up big electrical bills in.
If you think that they wouldn’t use technology to further their liberal plans, then you are not paying attention to the last three scandals.
Except this time, he is walking into the heart of America…where Mother Nature’s son is predominantly short on putting up with BS.
Good luck, Mr. “President!”
“Oh say can YOU see, by the dawn’s early light….”
