Today's Word - Diplomacy

The dictionary fails to define it thusly:


[dih-ploh-muh-see] Show IPA

1. the conduct by government officials of negotiations and other relations between nations.
2. the art or science of conducting such negotiations.
3. skill in managing negotiations, handling people, etc., so that there is little or no ill will; tact: Seating one's dinner guests often calls for considerable diplomacy.

Well,  the actual meaning is to either pay them off to not do something or convince them the price they will pay will be too outrageous if they do what you what you don't want them to do.  

It has nothing to do with people playing 'nicey-nice' and getting others to see your point of view.

When we talk about diplomacy, we're not talking about dinner guests, we're talking about the boy nuclear war dreamer in N. Korea or the whackjobs in Iran.

Here's a cat performing some Diplomacy with some house spiders.

An Expired Truism, A Method for Greatness - Killed, A Tool for Parents - No Longer Available

This is the endgame of socialism in America.  That word is supposed to be capitalized but it sure doesn't deserve to be so it's not.

Well, here it is.

Not Anymore.  Today if you work really hard, or if you worked really hard, and did all the right things like saving for a nice retirement and to be able to enrich your family upon passing, all you do or did was create a gift for the new socialist America.  A gift to be inhaled by the loser class of morons. A gift unappreciated and forgotten a nanosecond after they belch out the gaseous remains of your lifelong contribution to the societal plague known as socialism.

What you worked for the last 50 years will be inhaled and forgotten in a matter of minutes by a country that burns cash like China burns through coal.

Here are a few tidbits of evidence in a case too large for an army of prosecutors, even if they were all like Juan Martinez...

obamacare will suck the life and savings out of every living thing on the planet that is unfortunate enough to fall into its event horizon.  A black hole phenomenon that is the perfect description for obamacare. Black hole.

I personally predict the entire healthcare system in America will be unionized and we all know how efficient union workers are.  And this is in addition to all the evil that we actually know about obamacare like no healthcare provided for senior cancer patients, affirmative action for health "professionals", death squads of morons deciding what heath care will be afforded to you If they actually get around to you before you're dead. etc.

Next up is old Ben Bernanke who promised us in early 2008 that "Subprime is well contained and would not affect the financial system of even America"  We know it wasn't contained and has, since 2007, chewed through and destroyed the economic systems of many countries around the world.

Oh Ok Ben, sure we trust ya.  Congress has already floated the idea of a "one time" (yea right) "Tax" on savings accounts.  Hey, the money is sitting around doing nothing and the gov needs it right?

Well, I lunch with a retired couple every day for the most part who Did It Right.  Every day they tell me about how their savings are being eaten alive by the loser class and by inflation.  Their only hope of staying afloat is by tossing their nest eggs into the stock market, which even the most professional of the professional will only tell you that over a 20 years span no one has actually lost money.  They don't include inflation.  But what if you are retired.  The same people tell you you shouldn't have your income source at that much risk, so you're constrained to savings and things like CD's.  Too bad the 'financial crisis' has made the interest rate of CD's to go into the hundredths of a percent.

All the evidence now says that if you work really hard, all you get is screwed.  That is socialism.
Unless you're connected to the political class or the super rich, plan to be sheared to the point of having to drive some little POS that gets decent gas mileage and provides little else like they all do in England or France or any other socialist hellhole.

I think you can see where this is going.  You know, unless you're a progressive loser moron parasite feeding off of everyone who is putting in an effort.  Then it's great right?

F.W.I.W, Conservative Voices

It's really obvious the level of disgust and/or give up that has occurred with conservative bloggers.

Many, especially the good ones that were really focused on the political/America scene have just gone dark and just disappeared, don't even comment.  Then people who were active commenting on the bigger blogs are just gone.  All after this last election.

To me this means there are many that believe America is now fucked for the duration.  I certainly do. I'm just not going to shut up because I can't shut up.  And I was never totally focused on politics anyway

Ok, Who knows Jerry Reed was a Guitar Genius ?

No one.  Right.  Why would you.

He was.

Eric Johnson wrote and plays this [Embedding Disabled By Request] Tribute to Jerry Reed that really embodies Jerry Reed's style so well that the late Jerry Reed no doubt enjoys it more than I do.

If you like the style, plug Jerry Reed into the youtube search box and explore.  Chet Atkins Loved to play Jerry's tunes. In fact,  Here is a Jerry Reed tune played by Jerry.

Duh Scientists are Puzzled

Apparently, scientists are puzzled about why the Earth has been cooling the last 20 years.

Click the above sentence for the story.

ALL they had to do was check with me.  I could have saved them a lot of trouble.  I would have told them that global warming is bullshit and they're stupid.

But Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
