Actually Didn't Think It Would Happen This Fast

Affordable Health Care for Everyone !!!  Ring the Nirvana Bells  !!!

Well, not everyone, in fact probably only a select few young healthy people who don't even need the crap.

Seems those dirty, filthy, unhealthy POS Smokers who are driving up our health costs are not considered part of the everyone.

Wait until you see how You rate an extra special higher Rate !
(BMI higher than Miley Cyrus's? Moving Violation? Misdemeanor? Domestic Dispute?  Restless Leg Syndrome? don't laugh, People in your Friends list on Facebook? -don't laugh!)

Yea, as predicted 3 years ago when I read the bill.

Man,I hate libtards.  Are ya starting to feel like a cow with a bar-coded tag on your ear yet?  Give it a few weeks.

Our Future. Which Way WIll It Tip. Randoms.

There are some great kids out there to be sure.  Like this kid who was a nuclear genius in high school, and created cold fusion in the lab about the same age.  Click the picture for the story, it's a great 5-6 page read when you have the time.


Ah, but then you have the Clown Show going on unabated.  Obama. Biden, Congress and the Media and a lot of today's kids.  Intelligence of a rock, maturity of a 5 year old, and a destructive culture for many.

I don't think anything needs to be said about the vermin politicians.  All of them, but here's a funny from the media today, the flagship propaganda element CNN.  The name of the website is healthcare.GOV, but CNN touted it as healthcare.COM, which is not the correct website and should only be visited at one's own risk shall we say.

Here's a screen shot from the article that was updated a couple hours later.  How many people already assumed the site name was .Com ?  How many went there to 'sign up' and how will this story be reported as this revelation breaks into the news cycle.  I think it's Hilarious.  That the obama administration didn't have the intelligence of your average teenager who would have bought the healthcare.com domain just to keep this from happening is hilarious.  Maybe they did it on purpose and it's another money making avenue for these vermin.


What do you think of all the actors and guys in commercials with the 3 day stubble on heir face ?  I think it looks good on maybe 0.0000000001 % of the guys out there.  The old dude in the Arby's commercial?  No.  He looks like a train hopping hobo.  In a suit.  It makes most guys look dirty I'd think.  Do the women like it?  Wouldn't it be like kissing a porcupine ?
It's marketing people trying to push a cultural meme on society.  Isn't it funny how people pick up on this, do it, then think they're being unique?
Then who else is coming up with the popular culture stuff? Like tattoos.  Wildly Popular now. I see people with what looks like the contents of a comic book tattooed all over their body but most of them are totally meaningless to everyone else. Geometric designs like you see on the tailgate of a hot rod pickup truck, or maybe some arty thing that you think is pretty so you have it plastered all over yourself for Life.
Anyway, why don't kids get corporate sponsors instead ? Get the golden arches on your face, with "I'm Lovin It" across your chin or forehead and make money while you walk around ?  I think these kids have the right idea, but they probably can't say they're advertising in all weather conditions.


Then the thing with the pants down.  See I think it's all part of the communist Demoralization agenda.  Demoralization is job one when taking over a country.  (I'm not anti-gay but this is the only short funny vid I could find)





Pants down, piercings, tattoos, stubble.
Cursive writing and spelling taken out of the curriculum
Kids afraid of even looking at a gun.

Where are we going to be in 2020 or 2040 ?  Kids running around not able to communicate very well, corporate logos tattooed all over them, piercings, pants down to the knees, 3 day stubble.  No one joins the military anymore because they'd be forced to use one of those nasty 'guns'. Ugh.   It will be the worst looking and acting group of people the world has ever known.  The country might be taken over by the wildlife.

Veterans Day, a Personal Reconcilliation

One of the main things we hear on moments that honor our military members is Freedom Isn't Free.

I know people have trouble reconciling that to every engagement our military finds itself involved in.

I think, for me anyway and surely others, one wonders if we are truly fighting for America's freedom in some of the theaters our sons and daughters find themselves fighting in modern times.  

While Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan could be debated pretty vigorously, in the end, in spite of anything else that could be presented, it comes down to Americans fighting in support of other Americans who have been deployed to the latest God Forsaken Hellhole.  It doesn't matter whether the whole thing came down to a disagreement by a couple of assholes in too high of a position.

As far as Iraq, Afghanistan, we were (and are forever if you ask me) duty bound to provide payback and justice for all of those innocent civilians who were Murdered on 9-11-2001 by a bunch of jackals belonging to a cult called islam.  A price has to be paid at the minimum.  The very minimum.

Sadly, I don't think we've accomplished much in Afghanistan relative to our losses, but those who fought there can always be steadfast in the knowledge they were fighting in support of Americans, even if those Americans were their brothers and sisters in arms.  That in itself would be sufficient reason to join and serve.

It would certainly Not be the worst way to distinguish yourself.

I look forward to the day when we take threats such as the muslim plague seriously enough to deal with it as it must be dealt with to achieve victory.

In the meantime, all of these men and women who have fought for America have probably lived more in a couple years what most Americans don't do in a lifetime and for that I'm jealous of them.
  All veterans have my respect, and it doesn't matter what they did to serve. They at minimum filled a position so that another could fight.


Another representation of how I feel about the military is in the poem Tommy Atkins.  All the best to all the military veterans.

American Politicians Are In the News Way Too Much.

Maybe some other countries too, but who cares about those...

Congress (and those who control it) has evolved from a meet when necessary group to a micro-managing pack of information and power hungry morons.

Why is this? Politicians are afraid of us. They are insecure in their position. It's why they shower us with [false] information about themselves and constant whining about their political adversaries.

Has anyone noticed the volume of news dedicated to politics? Seems like at least 80% if you remove the serious garbage like Entertainment, Sports and Health.
In my opinion, and the opinion of other experts, the % of news dedicated to politics should be about 5%, a little more around elections.

It's like we're being forced to watch constant kindergarten playground wars which are being reported on by day care center inhabitants.

Professional Sppppporrrrrrttts

There was a time I was addicted.  Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1970's.  Tiger Woods pre-slut.

But back to the Steelers - Jack Lambert played every game like it was his last. Many other players put everything they had into the game, were thankful (I think) for the big money and were appreciative to fans. 

Sports Icons.  The bigger they are the harder they fall. No more detail needed here I don't think.

Then you've got the gang member football player that throws away a 40 mil contract so he can kill some guy who talked to someone who he didn't like the person talking to.  Not at trial yet, but not hard to figure either.  This is what gang bangers do.

Then yesterday I read a story about a Miami Dolphin where the headline indicated he made racist remarks to a rookie, but the meat of the story was how the veteran NFL players force the rookies to pay for all their stuff.  $30,000 outings and such, and the rookies often find themselves broke.  To me, that's gang activity, but 'gang' isn't my theme here really.  It is more how corrupted the whole enchilada of pro sports has evolved from generally wholesome players that played the game and did it in such a way as to truly inspire as role models while collecting a good reward for some hard work and talent.

Then you've got people mass murdering over soccer around the world.  Maybe that's because the game is so freakin Boring?

Joe DiMaggio once hit a marginal baseball and ran full out to first base anyway. When they asked him why, when he ran so hard when he knew he would be thrown out, he said "Because there is a kid in the stands watching the game for the 1st time and I want him to know how the game is played."

Walter Peyton ran the stadium steps to be the best runner he could.  Lots of great hard working players with big hearts it seems that don't exist much anymore.

I don't think today's players are of the same cloth, just as the people aren't of the same cloth as say 40 years ago.  Sure there are some good people involved but more are not what I would want my kids idolizing.

Anyway,  so the average ticket price for an NFL game is 78 bucks.  Then you have all the other costs.  For a family of 4, that's like 312 for ticket, probably 500 by the time you're back home.  $500 for an NFL game? Really?  And I've heard it's about the same for Baseball and a family of 4.  That's nuts right?

Who goes to these games?  Who pays this ? 

If they enjoy it, Great it's their business.  Free country and all, but it just seems like pro sports fan costs are in a bubble.  Doesn't seem like it can last.

What do you folks think?

oBAMa to Sign Executive Order to Steal Money for Climate Change..

Because most of the rest of the world knows it's BullShit.  

In fact, a recent aticle pointed out that 'duh sci en tists' were befuddled that CO2 was at highest recorded levels in modern history but the Earth has been getting cooler the last 15 years.

If CO2 is your whole argument and the evidence does not bear it out, then your whole argument is BullShit.
