“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Rush....get well soon!

Rush was taking a golf vacation in Hawaii and experienced severe chest pains after which, he spent the night in the hospital. He was in serious condition but is reported to be resting comfortably now. I wonder if the golf-course starter put him and Barack Obama in the same foursome...that would explain the chest pain. Then again, Rush may have been faking I mean, who wouldn't fake a heart attack if you had to watch this golf swing for a whole round?

President shankopotomus!

Here's wishing Rush a full and speedy recovery.

Fat-kid video clips are awesomely awsome!

Heh, heh...a fat kid attempts a cannon-ball into a lake........that's frozen!

From Linkiest...

EMBED-Fat Guy Lake Cannonball Fail - Watch more free videos

It's a good thing he's been stuffing his face with hamburgers, fries, and ice-cream his whole life because a skinny dude might have broken his spine rather than the ice.

Failures should be allowed to fail

Can somebody please explain to me how this is consistent with the American way of capitalism and self-determination in the market place?

NEW YORK - The government on Wednesday provided a fresh $3.8 billion cash infusion to stabilize GMAC Financial Services as the financing company struggles with hefty losses in its home mortgage unit.

The Treasury Department said the new aid, which comes from a taxpayer-financed bailout fund, is less than the roughly $6 billion the government had earlier thought GMAC would need to stabilize the company.

The fresh infusion is on top of $12.5 billion in taxpayer money Detroit-based GMAC has already received from the government. The new agreement will boost the federal government's ownership in GMAC to 56 percent, from 35 percent.

Without the threat of failure, where is the incentive for companies to employ efficient and wise business practices? Obama says he doesn't want to be in the financing and mortgage business yet, the federal government now owns a majority share of GMAC thanks to tax-cheat boy-wonder, Timmy Geithner, as directed by the man-child President.

Is there any slice of the American economy this administration doesn't want to control? Heaven help us!

Shut up and sing!

The hardly memorable, second-rate singer, Tori Amos has announced that she's smarter than Sarah Palin....

She says, "If Palin runs again, I'm going to run on a Republican ticket. What I know about Middle Eastern policy could fit on a thumbnail, but I still know more than she does."

Then she dropped this bit of hilarity......

"You have to ask, how could a nation nearly vote in somebody who isn't qualified for the job?"

Uh, nobody is less qualified for his job than the organizer in chief, Barack Obama. You could make me an astronaut tomorrow and Obama would still be less qualified for his job than me. Every time these dumb quasi-celebrities experience a dip in their record sales or popularity with fans, they jump into politics to give themselves some relevance. Hint to Tori.....you just look stupid. Make a decent album that people want to listen to for a change and leave the politics and decision-making to the grown-ups.

Profile the Muslims!!!

On one of the busiest flying weekends of the year, our myopic, politically correct government decided to further inconvenience domestic air travellers with excessive security checks, because a crazed Muslim, aged 18-25, tried to blow up an airplane full of people over Detroit, after departing from Amsterdam. Of course Holland is perhaps the most tolerant, Muslim-friendly country in all the western world. It is literally being colonized by hostile Muslims and the Dutch continue to bend over backwards to accommodate them regardless of how hostile they are toward their hosts.

When is America going to pull it's head out and start profiling Muslims who're coming into the country? I'll wager that even if this attempt had been successful and there had been bodies strewn from Saginaw to Kalamazoo that day, our government would have insisted that we not judge Islam nor give in to the temptation to unfairly single Muslim travellers out for scrutiny. They'd say that our diversity is our strength and that profiling is equal to religious persecution.

What a load of crap!

The only group on Earth who are hell-bent on killing Americans are Muslims. Every other country in the world is laughing at our stupidity. Sure, one or two might get through despite our efforts but, it won't be because we invited it with blinding political correctness.

Profiling all crazed Muslims, aged 18-25, who are immigrating or visiting America would stop most of these incidents.

"Sports Reporters" features too much agenda and too little sports reporting

I was watching the Sports Reporters this morning on ESPN and the topic was Urban Meyer's unexpected departure from Florida and, his citation of health reasons. William C. Rhodan(pic) made the outrageous argument that the NCAA or the federal government should legislate that like players, coaches should be limited to how much time they spend at their jobs because of the adverse health effects that come from the stress of big-time college football. What an idiot!

Coaches are employees, not student/athletes. If Urban Meyer wants to work himself to death, that's his business, the same as it is Rhoden's if he works himself too hard.
Would Rhoden be OK with the government dictating how much time he gets each week to write his columns? For guys like Rhoden, government interference in other peoples' lives is OK as long as it stays out of his life.

The next moronic thing he said was that any NCAA school that fails to interview at least one minority to fill a head-coaching position vacancy, should be penalized 5 scholarships. I wonder if he's for the same quota system on the field as off of it? Blacks only make up 12% of the population yet, black student/athletes dominate football and basketball at the college and professional levels. I don't hear him complaining about that disparity. I guess affirmative action and quotas are only good if they unfairly benefit black kids and coaches and punish white ones.

Every time I watch that show, I'm reminded of why I don't watch it.

Not all Muslims are terrorists but, 99% of terrorists are Muslim

Islamic Rage Boy says, "Death to America! Death to the infidels!"

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - An attempted terrorist attack on a Christmas Day flight began with a pop and a puff of smoke - sending passengers scrambling to subdue a Nigerian man who claimed to be acting on orders from al-Qaida to blow up the airliner, officials and travelers said.

The commotion began as Northwest Airlines Flight 253, carrying 278 passengers and 11 crew members from Amsterdam, prepared to land in Detroit just before noon Friday. Travelers said they smelled smoke, saw a glow, and heard what sounded like firecrackers. At least one person climbed over others and jumped on the man, who officials say was trying to ignite an explosive device.

Of course you have to scour the interwebs to find mention of this douchebag's name. It is
Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab. We'll be lectured to again by the media about jumping to unfair conclusions about Muslims, and douche's like Chris Matthews will whine about what a tragedy it'll be if our diversity is sacrificed because of one bad Muslim apple. How many domestic attacks by Muslims will it take for Americans to finally say enough and start profiling these people? And thank goodness for the brave passenger(s) who subdued this guy. I hope they kicked his ass a little while they had him pinned, maybe ruptured a kidney, lacerated his spleen or, detached a lung.....something.

Nutty environmentalists want to control everything

I hope everybody had a merry Christmas and contributed greatly to their personal carbon footprints through excessive fire-place burning and the conspicuous consumption for which we Americans are infamous. That said, as unhappy as eco-kooks probably are with our waste, it seems they're upset at our music also....

AUSSIE rockers AC/DC could have to cancel a sold-out concert because their big sound poses a danger to rare birds.

Animal rights campaigners are threatening legal action if the veteran band goes ahead with a gig planned for Wels airport in Austria in May.

Hans Uhl of BirdLife said birds nesting in the area at the time would be threatened by anthems such as Highway To Hell and You Shook Me All Night Long.

"The second biggest colony of curlews in Upper Austria and various other ground-nesting birds must not become endangered," Mr Uhl said.

They're just a bunch of uptight busybodies who resent lots of people having a good time doing something, anything, that can't be considered "communing with nature". That's the problem with liberals, as long as you're engaging in activities approved by them it's OK but, don't dare exercise your freedom to enjoy life by listening to music of which they don't approve.

Rock on Brian and Angus, Rock on!

Chairman Zero and Harry Reid dampen the Christmas spirit for patriotic Americans

Lest you people think that America can weather the frantic spending of congress as directed by Obama's administration, read this article about what happens to countries who spend wildly as if money were free. It's quite sobering and scary.

By Richard Rahn over at the Cato Institute by way of WashingtonTimes

Here's an excerpt...

The following should be known to most members of Congress. The size of the U.S. government is already well over the welfare and economic growth-maximizing rate. Taxes on upper-income Americans are well above the revenue-maximizing rate. Thus, for those in the political class to further increase the size of government and government debt as a percentage of GDP is grossly irresponsible. It is almost as if they had a death wish for the country.

It's hard to make sense of what Chairman Zero, Pelosi and Reid are cramming down our throats unless it's that they really do want to destroy what America is, perniciously and intentionally morphing it into some grotesque amalgam of a soviet-style nanny state and a second-rate, dying democracy like the old European countries.

Try to have a merry Christmas in spite of what's happening to our country.

Al Gore and Gordon Brown get lost in small hallway

How are we supposed to take seriously their assessment of global climate change when they can't even assess which door is the hotel conference room and which one is the housekeeping closet?

This is an apt microcosm of the Copenhagen summit and the global warming issue itself.....arrogant, self-important blow-hards walking around without a clue but, determined to reach their stated goal....what a couple of retards!

Senators Landrieu and Nelson make other democrats feel like patsies

Craven senate democrats who gave their health-care vote away just because they adore Chairman Zero are feeling pretty stupid right about now and, they'll be wanting their slices of pie next time around....

From FoxNews -- Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, after securing a sweetheart deal for his state as part of the health insurance reform bill, said Tuesday that three other senators have told him they want to bargain for the same kind of special treatment.

"Three senators came up to me just now on the (Senate) floor, and said, 'Now we understand what you did. We'll be seeking this funding too'," Nelson said.

To our democrat overlords, offering and taking bribes is common-place and reasonable when control of 1/6th of the American economy is the reward....principles be damned! I hope it was worth it when the voters kick these criminals out of office. But don't worry about them too much. I'm sure Rahm Emanual guaranteed, in exchange for each and every taken bribe, a cushy K-street lobbying job with lots of perks and benefits should they lose their senate seats to voter outrage at their unforgivable treachery.

Chairman Zero's next assault on America.....amnesty

Remember the "Day Without Illegals" protests earlier this year? I found this picture from that day and thought it'd be appropriate to post it on the eve of Chairman Zero's amnesty-bill debate....

An illegal alien unwittingly sums up quite nicely the extent of their contribution to American culture....

When Obama promised that no illegals would be covered by his disastrous, socialist health-care reform bill, what he left out was that he'd make all 15million aliens, legal citizens, at which point they'd be covered.

You've been hoodwinked America.....make 'em pay in November.

Another democrat abandons ship.....excellent!!

The main-stream media only report it when a republican traitor switches sides to become a loathsome democrat so, in case you didn't hear.....

From Michelle Malkin -- Politico reports that Alabama Democrat Rep. Parker Griffith will switch parties today. He’s a defender of grass-roots activists who protested at town halls over the summer and a cancer doctor who passionately opposes a government health care takeover.

We're likely to start seeing more and more of this sort of thing as red-state democrats see the writing on the wall when elections roll around in 10 months. Obama has outsourced all his policy initiatives to the House and Senate so these guys are on the hook with voters when the legislation becomes staggeringly unpopular like, health-care, cap-and-trade, stimulus, TARP, etc. The next big debacle for Chairman Zero will be immigration and amnesty. That should keep the villagers angry enough to show up in November with torches and pitchforks, ready to throw the bums out.

Phony carbon exchange collapses in wake of Copenhagen farce

Finally, some sanity regarding the global warming sham....

Carbon prices plunged yesterday in the aftermath of the Copenhagen conference on climate change, dealing a blow to the credibility of the European Union's carbon-trading scheme.

Prices for carbon permits for December 2010 delivery, the benchmark contract for pricing European permits, dropped nearly 10 per cent in early trading, before recovering to end the day 8.3 per cent lower at €12.41.

Lower prices give companies less incentive to invest in cutting their greenhouse gas output. Analysts estimate that prices of more than €40 a tonne are required to stimulate investment in new low-carbon technologies.

Those dumb Europeans actually believe in man-made global warming and are arrogant and smug enough to think they can affect the world climate by buying and trading carbon allowances...heh, heh. Democrats in America are no smarter than their European counterparts but, at least we haven't let them saddle us with ridiculous, economy-destroying carbon credits...not yet anyway.

The whole "green economy" is a bunch of manufactured nonsense, created by socialists in the democrat party as a ruse for controlling all aspects of life in America. There is no market demand for green jobs. When the technology for wind, solar, cow farts, whatever becomes more efficient than the energy we currently produce, people will naturally switch to the cheaper form of energy. Creating a phony exchange for carbon based on what are known to be lies is just an exercise in absurdity.

Ed's Medical Moment

Have we not heard enough hysterics about autism already? With Jenny McCarthy and histrionic soccer moms insisting that everything in the environment causes it, it's a wonder autism hasn't become public enemy #1 over at the CDC.....

Washington, D.C., D.C., United States (AHN) - University of Alabama researchers say the rate of autism and related development disorders has skyrocketed in the past four years.

[sic]Tthe researchers said in a statement, one in 110 8-year-olds is classified as having an autism spectrum disorder, which is 57 percent higher compared to only four years ago.

The researchers said they do not know what caused the dramatic increase in the number of children being diagnosed with autism, but it could be due with a broader definition of autism disorders and heightened awareness by parents, doctors and teachers about the condition.

Just as with other misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and uncured diseases, the incidence of autism will naturally rise as better diagnostics are used and as other disorders are ruled out. It's not necessarily because something in the environment(diet and vaccines) is causing an increase. But the media will report it that way because it gets people scared, and nothing drives viewership like a terrified audience.

As modern medicine began being able to treat heart disease, kidney disease, and other common killers, people began living longer and there was nothing left to get sick from besides cancer. Cancer rates didn't go up so much as early detection methods improved and they could treat everything else.

I wouldn't doubt it...

This must have been very inconvenient for holiday shoppers in New York City.....

NEW YORK — Hundreds of holiday shoppers were evacuated from the flagship Macy's store at Herald Square on Sunday after a fire in an escalator spread smoke through the building.

It was reported that dozens of shoppers were stranded on the moving stairs after the department store stopped the escalator to assess the damage from the fire.

Ben Nelson succumbs to a bribe

Just like Mary Landreau before him, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska caved in to Harry Reid thanks to a multi-billion dollar bribe. This deal essentially puts all American tax-payers unfairly on the hook for extended federal-funding of medicair and medicaid in Nebraska....for a couple of years....then Nebraskans gets screwed over just like the rest of us. He was holding out because of nebulous language regarding federal funding of abortion but in the end, his craven political ambition won out over his principles.

What a treacherous, smarmy lot these democrats are!

The 2010 Revolution

Now here's a candidate who understands what America and the Constitution are all about....

Lt. Colonel Alan West is running for congress in the 22nd district of Florida. We need more guys like this in DC. I can't remember Obama saying anything about the Constitution other than to describe it's shortcomings.

Blizzard interrupts global-warming summit....heh heh!

The ridiculous Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, already teetering on the brink of idiocy, slid down the slope of absurdity and finally, crashed on the jagged rocks of laughable farce today, as unheard of blizzard conditions hammered Denmark as Chairman Zero lectured delegates about global warming, heh heh......

Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- World leaders flying into Copenhagen today to discuss a solution to global warming will first face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.

“Temperatures will stay low at least the next three days,” Henning Gisseloe, an official at Denmark’s Meteorological Institute, said today by telephone, forecasting more snow in coming days. “There’s a good chance of a white Christmas.”

Denmark has a maritime climate and milder winters than its Scandinavian neighbors. It hasn’t had a white Christmas for 14 years, under the DMI’s definition, and only had seven last century. Temperatures today fell as low as minus 4 Celsius (25 Fahrenheit).

It seems that every time there is a global-warming summit somewhere, a freak winter storm with unprecedented cold interrupts the proceedings. It's almost as if God himself were trying to get their attention and say....

"How stupid and self-absorbed are you navel-gazing morons? I created this planet to have climate fluctuations which it's had for billions of years. You would have to be me to alter it in any measurable way."

Al Gore reads bad poetry....badly!

Listening to the insufferable Al Gore read his horrifically stupid poem out loud, renders Ipecac entirely superfluous....

It's too bad that I can't unhear the awfulness of that.

Biting the hand that feeds them

In Copenhagen this week, poor countries are protesting that the $100billion that has been pledged by rich countries to help them cope with the entirely natural phenomenon of climate change, isn't enough. They want more money from rich nations as punishment for harming the planet.....

From FoxNews -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday that the U.S. would be willing to commit $10 billion a year to contribute to a $100 billion global fund aimed at helping developing nations deal with climate change.

I have an idea....instead of stealing even more money from American taxpayers, why not tell despotic leaders of these God-forsaken, third-world hell-holes that we'll give them the climate-change billions but, we're going to have to stop all the shipments of free medicine and food, stop the agriculture training, the billions in aid money and, military protection. Then let's see how badly they want to punish the US for a geo-phenomenon that's been cycling for billions of years.

insurance costs in the free market

This morning on Fox and Friends, John Stossel brought up a good point about our consumption of health-care and the cost of providing it through a third party. He rightly observed that if we had grocery insurance, we'd all be buying steaks every night, $50 bottles of wine and, tiramisu for dessert, because somebody else would be paying for it all. The same goes for basic health-care. We expect somebody else to pay for the most basic care and as a result, we consume it as if it were free. If we had to pay for routine checkups and procedures out of our pockets, we would consume far less of it and the price of it would go down. That's how the free market works.

Obama's plan of going to single-payer(the federal government) would only make the problem exponentially worse.

We need insurance only for catastrophes like car wrecks, cancer and, heart attacks, etc. We should budget for our routine health-care out of our pockets the same as we budget for gas, food, clothing, entertainment, etc. But this health-care take over isn't about providing everybody with affordable health-care. There are far better and cheaper ways to do that. Just like with all of Obama's policy initiatives, it's about expanding the scope and reach of the federal government into and over the lives of individuals.

The Reason

As if you needed a reason to call your Senator and strongly encourage him to vote against health care reform in any manner, I give you the following:

The Department of Energy, a relatively new addition to the government, was born when and why?

Give up? Thinking hard? Look, listen and learn:

President Jimmy Carter (whom Ed refers to as the worst U.S. President) founded this department on 8-4-1977. Its purpose was to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. To date (32 years later) we have managed to increase our importing of this oil, and see nothing but increases again for years to come.

This group employs 16,000 federal employees, 100,000 contract employees and has a budget of $24.2 billion . Nice. Just think what we could have done had we invested that money in solar/wind/some other power research.

Is there any other reason necessary to not allow the government to run health care in this country. I am dialing the phone now. I hope you will too!

Chuck the Schmuck

NY senator Chuck Shumer should be in hot water over this but, he's a liberal so the media will shrug.....

From Politico -- Schumer and his seatmate, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), were chatting on their phones before takeoff when an announcement indicated that it was time to turn off the phones.

Both senators kept talking.

According to the GOP aide, a flight attendant then approached Schumer and told him the entire plane was waiting on him to shut down his phone.

Schumer asked if he could finish his conversation. When the flight attendant said “no,” Schumer ended his call but continued to argue his case.

When the flight attendant walked away, the witness says Schumer turned to Gillibrand and uttered the word "bitch"[sic].

Any other American who was argumentative with, and hostile to, a flight attendant would be throw off the flight but, not Chuck the Schmuck. Because he's a liberal, the media will not give it a second glance but, if it had been a republican, there would be hell to pay.

I'd like to hear from the gals over at NOW or other liberal women's' groups on this matter. But we won't because Shumer's a big proponent of unlimited access to taxpayer-funded abortions so they won't dare criticize him for mistreating a woman who's just doing her job. You see, women's' groups aren't about women's' rights or protecting women from abuse from misogynists like Clinton and Shumer. They'll look the other way no matter how badly you treat women as long as you advance their abortion agenda.

Robin Hood -- 2010 Trailer

Just saw the trailer for Robin Hood with Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchet....

Looks eerily like LOTR, I mean cinematically. And I'm going to have to second-guess Russel Crowe as the bandit of Nottingham as he's not svelte enough. Perhaps he would be more believable playing Friar Tuck....heh, heh. Also, they cast Cate Blanchet as the winsome maid Marion? She's like 45! How many maids(virgins) make it to 45? The life-expectancy back then was like 50. I guess this is the dark version of the story.

At any rate, Robin Hood was a hero of mine as a kid so I'll probably go see this.

Footnote: Almost all people were taught by liberals in America that Robin Hood simply stole from the rich to give to the poor. This let liberals place the "evil" tag on anybody who's rich and it's patently false. What he did was steal from the tyrannical, corrupt government and the ruling class who benefited from the tyranny and, gave to the proletariat who were burdened by over-taxation and oppression.

Sharia masseuses? Good luck with that

Here's an interesting story from Afghanistan.....

From TheLocal - Sweden's news in English -- A Swedish army gender adviser in Afghanistan has taken the Armed Forces to task for only employing local men to perform massages on troops stationed in Mazar-E-Sharif.

"It is the opinion of FS17 that there are no reasonable grounds for gender to be one of the profile requirements," he wrote.

Fahlstedt further stressed that his force was committed to strengthening the position of women in society by helping create the conditions in which they could become self-sufficient.

"It's not important as such whether women eventually get the job, what's important is that there's equality of opportunity and they are treated on the same terms as men."

I guess if we're going to invade a foreign country and impose our way of life on them, Afghan women may as well be guaranteed the same equal opportunity for work as men, even if it's culturally and religiously anathema to do so. I wonder when the first female masseuse will be stoned for touching a male, not her husband? Probably her first day on the job. At some point, you'd think these stone-aged, middle-eastern countries would emerge from the dark ages of primitive backwardness and join the modern world. Let's just hope this story has a happy ending.


Posted by Reid

Well after careful thought I have finally figured out who is to become the biggest loser in all of the Tiger Woods fiasco, and it appears to be NIKE. In an unprecedented global marketing debacle, Tiger and his numerous extra marital liaisons have managed to ruin a long running and highly successful marketing slogan. How can Nike continue to use these words without some type of specificity.

The campaign has been simple and straightforward. Easy to fit into any and all sports arenas, and has captured the market of the youth and young adults of today. The ad department at Nike transformed the company from a sports shoe outfitter to an overt apparel outfitter on the back of great athletes (Tiger being one of them) with good public persona's and by marketing their clothing line straight at the youngsters. This seems to be shot as we speak.

People (friends) are coming to Tigers aid, but with little or no effect on the landslide of the public disdain for his actions.

Steve, Tigers caddy, comes on the radio and states that this issue should be private and left alone, then quickly changes sides and throws in for his wife that he would never do the same things.

There is nothing about Tigers cheating on his wife that is okay, lets be clear on that. He made a VOW, a promise, to be faithful to her. He agreed to love, honor and cherish her 'til death does them part (which may be soon for him if she gets the 2 iron again). He violated that trust and may never regain it. That's back to where Nike has to examine their relationship with him and decide their future path. Do they support and uphold a relationship that has been good for both sides for years, or do the cut ties and run?

The only way I see out of this marketing debacle is to sever ties, at least for the short run, and to find a new slogan. Either that or start making condoms with the swoosh. Either way there are seemingly dark days ahead for Nike.

Copenhagen is about our money, not our emissions

Apparently, thug dictators in third-world hell-holes haven't been promised enough of American taxpayers' money to combat mythical climate change so, they're boycotting the summit.....GOOD!!!!

COPENHAGEN (AP) - China, India and other developing nations boycotted U.N. climate talks on Monday, bringing negotiations to a halt with their demand that rich countries discuss much deeper cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions.

Representatives from developing countries - a bloc of 135 nations - said they refused to participate in any formal working groups at the 192-nation summit until the issue was resolved.

The African-led move was a setback for the Copenhagen talks, which were already faltering over long-running disputes between rich and poor nations over emissions cuts and financing for developing countries to deal with climate change.

See, even murdering thug dictators know how stupid it would be for the US to curtail it's emissions as this would cripple our economy and make their poor countries more competitive. And they know just how stupid our political class is that it would fall for such a ridiculous stunt. Copenhagen isn't about climate change, carbon, the environment, or polar bears. It's about what modern, international environmentalism has always been about....grabbing as much of Americans' wealth as they can. And environmental guilt over the absurd notion of America-caused global warming seems to be doing the trick with America-hating apologists like Obama controlling the purse strings.

No political correctness at this school

Want to hear what your child's school answering machine SHOULD sound like?

Borrowed from Moonbattery

The teachers at this Australian school voted unanimously to record this outgoing message on the office answering machine. Many American helicopter parents could use a lesson in child rearing from these Aussies.

When euthanizing your terminally-ill wife in her nursing home bed, it's best to use a method that you know will work.....

The police determined that Robert had fired a loaded orange flare gun loaded with a 00 buck shot 12-gauge round at Leatrice in an attempt to end her life," Officer Kaimi Kellett said in the affidavit. "Further investigation showed that Robert may have tried to end his life at the same time using another loaded orange flare gun."

Now he's got a terminally-ill wife with a gun-shot wound, who has nobody to take care of her because he's going to jail for attempted murder....sad!

I think the PGA Tour is in a blind panic right about now with this news...

From DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer -- Tiger Woods is taking an indefinite leave from professional golf to work on saving his family, using the word “infidelity” for the first time in a statement posted on his Web site.

Woods says he is aware of the disappointment that “my infidelity” has caused to his wife and children. He says he might not be able to repair the damage, but he wants to try.

This is the best move for Tiger but, I wonder what the other Tour professionals are thinking, given that the ad revenue, and therefor the winning purses, will be dramatically lower for the indefinite future. Either it's, "Yea, now I have a chance of winning without practicing very hard." or "Bummer, now the tournament purses will be half of what they used to be when Tiger was in the field."

I need one of them gub'ment jobs

Even during a recession in which 1 in 10 Americans have lost their jobs and thousands join them every day, still the corrupt federal government continues to expand....

From USAToday -- The number of federal workers earning six-figure salaries has exploded during the recession, according to a USA TODAY analysis of federal salary data.

Federal employees making salaries of $100,000 or more jumped from 14% to 19% of civil servants during the recession's first 18 months — and that's before overtime pay and bonuses are counted.

Federal workers are enjoying an extraordinary boom time — in pay and hiring — during a recession that has cost 7.3 million jobs in the private sector.

The highest-paid federal employees are doing best of all on salary increases. Defense Department civilian employees earning $150,000 or more increased from 1,868 in December 2007 to 10,100 in June 2009, the most recent figure available.

When the recession started, the Transportation Department had only one person earning a salary of $170,000 or more. Eighteen months later, 1,690 employees had salaries above $170,000.

The growth in six-figure salaries has pushed the average federal worker's pay to $71,206, compared with $40,331 in the private sector.

This is more evidence of how under democrats and feckless republicans alike, the behemoth federal bureaucracy keeps feeding itself while punishing the source of it's food.....the American taxpayer. What's worse, it's a one-way process. Once new jobs are created in the government, they are never deleted and those employees will never vote for a politician who's likely to cut their jobs out, so the size of government never shrinks. It only gets larger and larger and more cumbersome. Pretty soon a critical mass of citizens are on the government dole and they'll keep voting in smarmy politicians who'll keep giving them more and more money, and the government continues to grow until the country collapses under the sheer weight of taxation, regulation, fraud, waste, and abuse by unaccountable federal employees.

Wreaths at Arlington Cemetery

I think I've talked about this before, but it is worth repeating. The owner of the Worcester Wreath Co. in 1992 decided to do something with some extra wreaths made for the holiday season. He loaded them on a truck and sent them to Arlington, where he and some friends/volunteers put them out on some of the headstones at the national cemetery. This project has continued since then and has grown. Now local Maine school children combine an educational field trip to D.C. with a chance to distribute the wreaths at Arlington. The cemetery director decides each year which section gets decorated, so that all the graves are "wreathed" before they start over. This is a wonderful display of patriotism and a true honor to those who have sacrificed their life for this still great country.
Tomorrow at 10 is the set aside time for the wreaths to be put out. I for one will take a moment of quiet reverence and thankful prayer to honor these soldiers and their sacrifices. Maybe we can all do this and hopefully share the story with someone. Maybe the readers of TRR can start a wave of patriotism and national pride that will sweep the nation. Of course I can always dream!! Merry Christmas to all!!

Bengal tigers want to eat you

Heh heh, dumb animal trainer slips and fall during a dinner-club performance and becomes the main course...

From DailyMail -- An animal tamer is in a critical condition after being mauled by three tigers during a bizarre supper circus club show in Germany.

Christian Walliser, 28, was attacked by the big cats as 170 horrified diners at at Pagel’s Dinner Circus looked on.

Three of the five tigers mauled the trainer when he lost his footing.
Within seconds the animals had shredded Mr Walliser's left hand and inflicted serious injuries to his head and upper body.

I've said it before and I'll say it again....to wild carnivores, we are nothing but potential meals and while they appear to be "trained", it's only a matter of time before they tire of performing and decide to eat us.

Tiger's race problem

Black women are not upset with Tiger for cheating, just not cheating with any of them....

Iv'e read article after article written by black sports writers, columnists, and bloggers who are furious that Tiger didn't cheat with any black women. They're saying he's a racist and ashamed of his black heritage. The common complaint among the writers is that as soon as black men achieve a level of success, especially in sports, they abandon black women in favor of blond, white women. Why is that?

I think it's as simple as possessing the forbidden fruit. I know I know, it's not forbidden but, culturally in a lot of ways and on both sides, it certainly is forbidden. When these black guys suddenly have all the things they couldn't before like fast cars, tons of money and access, they also want the one other thing society historically has told them they can't have....white women. Rather than the conscious abandonment of black women, I think it boils down to trophy hunting.

Heh heh....dumb kid gets owned by skateboard

I could sit at my desk and watch clips like this all day long.....

The Tiger-plot thickens

So even though Elin moved out of the house, an unnamed, middle-aged blond woman was rushed from Tiger's house at 2:30 this morning to the emergency room on "advanced life support", as was reported by intrepid newsreader Steve Doocy on Fox this morning.

Just one question....since when is a dextrose drip considered "advanced life support"? Come on Fox, don't over-report to make it seem more dramatic than it is.

I was telling my wife this morning how with every new bizarre development, this story is starting to feel like an OJ saga or something. About the only development left is for one of these girls to end up pregnant or dead, or a dude to come forward.

Obama seizes the American economy by the throat

This is the largest power-grab by the corrupt Obama administration yet....

Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people's health and must be regulated, signaling that the Obama administration is prepared to contain global warming without congressional action if necessary.

Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released from power plants, factories and automobiles under the federal Clean Air Act.

This ruling effectively gives Obama free-reign to regulate businesses' production of harmless gases like CO2. Literally anybody who consumes energy in any form will be affected by the coming regulations. Global warming has been proven to be a lie yet, Obama presses forward as if everybody in the world believes the charade. The worst part is that eco pied-piper Al Gore was seen visiting the white house in the last few days leading up to this declaration by the EPA, and coincidentally stands to make over a BILLION dollars once the federal government starts to regulate the nation's energy consumption. Of course the fawning sycophants in the main-stream-media don't see any conflict of interest here.

I wonder how much of that billion Gore promised to Obama in return for this ruling by the EPA?

Political activism....FAIL!!!

Heh heh....democrats throw like sissies.....

A man was arrested for allegedly throwing two tomatoes at Sarah Palin from the second floor balcony during a book signing event at the Mall of America in Minnesota, MyFoxTwinCities.com. reported.

Neither tomato came close hitting the former 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, but did hit a police officer in the face.

In the first place, how big if a douche is this guy for throwing tomatoes at women? Then, how stupid do you have to be for hitting a cop in the face when you miss? I love it!

I hope the cops beat him like Rodney King.

President Obama to children...if it feels good, do it!

This is Obama's degenerate Safe-Schools csar, Kevin Jennings. Over at Biggovernment, there's an article detailing his promotion of deviant, adult sexual practices to minors. Here's an excerpt if you have the stomach for it.....

[sic]....it was discovered that Kevin Jennings’ organization GLSEN sponsored a youth conference at Tuft’s University in March 2000. This conference was fully supported by the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Safe Schools Program, the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and some of the presenters even received federal money. An undercover journalist with Mass Resistance was at the conference and recorded a couple of the workshops. During one of the conference workshops an activist asks 14 year-old students, “Spit or swallow?… Is it rude?”

That’s not all. The conference also included a workshop where GLSEN activists promoted “fisting” to 14 year olds

Of course don't expect to get this story from any of the networks and certainly not from MSNBC, where deplorable deviant Keith Olbermann and militant, aggressive lesbian Rachel Maddow will ignore it while making endless "tea-bagging" jokes about patriotic Americans. If you want to hear the clip, go here. And if you've heard Olby and Maddow laugh for minutes-on-end about tea-bagging and didn't get the joke, click on over to UrbanDictionary and see what they find so much fun to talk about on national TV.

To liberals, literally any behavior is OK for kids, especially if it involves sex, and intolerant conservatives shouldn't be such fuddy-duddy's about it. That's why Obama and the media don't see anything wrong with promoting hard-core sex to children.

I wonder if he'd let Sasha and Malia sit through a fisting workshop? Probably not but, he wants your kids to know about it.

What's the Vegas line on Tiger keeping his wife?

Tiger Woods' mistresses now number 7, and counting. What do you think the over/under line is in Vegas before Elin says, "Enough already, I'm outta' here!"?

I'm going to say the over/under is 10 mistresses. If the number equals 10 or higher, Elin will take her money and leave with the kids. If she still sticks around after 10, then it's just for the money at that point and what's the price for your self-respect?

Though it could be argued that if she's still around even now, it shows that she's got little or no self respect anyway and it's just about the money so, what's a few more mistresses going to matter?

UPDATE: (3:56-Monday) I just read where Elin took the kids and moved out to another house in the neighborhood. That makes officially 7 mistresses so, if you had money on the "under", you win!

Remember Pearl Harbor

It's Pearl Harbor Day today. For you panty-waste liberals who have nothing but disdain and contempt for America and her military, this means nothing to you but, for patriots, Dec. 7, 1941 was for our parents and grandparents, their 9/11. This clip is far from politically correct and I intend no offense by showing it but, I'm sure at the time, it sold a ton of war bonds to fund our Pacific campaign against the Japanese.

If Obama acknowledges Pearl Harbor Day in any way, I'll wager it'll be to apologize for American arrogance, aggression and, imperialism in the western Pacific ocean 70 years ago. Essentially he'll say that we had it coming.

Sunday debate

Which would you rather make out with, Amy Winehouse, or a bowl of earthworms?

The gene pool gets a little smarter

It comes as news to this base jumper that high-voltage power lines can be dangerous...

ASSOCIATED PRESS -- CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Authorities say a Tucson man has died after parachuting from a cell phone tower at night and hitting high-voltage power lines.

Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tamatha Villar says 23-year-old Darrell Dunafon and two friends broke into a cell tower site about 30 miles south of Phoenix on Friday night and were parachuting off the approximately 400-foot-tall antennae.

Dunafon's parachute became tangled in nearby 12,000-volt power lines and he was shocked with a live wire.

This is why cell-phone towers have locked fences around them....so moron base jumpers can't climb the towers and kill themselves without breaking the law. I'm sure his parents are heartbroken but then, do we really need people this dumb in the gene pool?

Tiger's girls get pwned by a prostitute....ouch!

Remember Ashley Dupre? She's the infamous prostitute whose famous relationship with Eliot Spitzer(Client #9)caused the end of his career. Well, she has some things to say about Tiger Wood's girls....

From FoxNews -- Ashley Dupre is teed off at all those Tiger Woods mistresses coming out of the woodwork.

"First of all, these gals are taking money and gifts while seeing a high-powered celeb", the infamous escort griped yesterday to The Post. "Then, they're blabbing all about it in exchange for money.

Hey, who's ho-ing now?"

"My case in point, here you have all these girls accepting gifts, money, trips from Tiger in exchange for sex -- all the while knowing he is married.

"And now they all can't wait to tell their stories in exchange for even more money from the tabloids?

"And I was the hooker? At least I kept my mouth shut."

I'm afraid Ms. Dupre has a point. The difference between what Ashley did with Spitzer and what these girls did with Tiger is negligible but, then taking money to be a dirty rat, keeping voice mails and texts, knowing that they'd be an ace-card you could play one day, is low down in the extreme. I have more respect for Ms. Dupre.

Like rats from the S.S. Global Warming

Clown-like blowhard and eco charlatan Al Gore, is suddenly looking for cover in the wake of his entire reason for living having been exposed as a sham, heh heh.....

Former Vice President Al Gore on Thursday abruptly canceled a Dec. 16 personal appearance that was to be staged during the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, which begins next week.

The Goreacle was going to charge eco-bureaucrats at Copenhagen over $1,200 a piece to hear him speak, glad-hand them, and feed them a stupid, vegan snack. But, since man-made global warming is now known to be a total mockery of a sham of a travesty of a sham, thanks to the hacked e-mails, him bellowing about CO2, rising seas, and polar bears just looks ridiculous...and he knows it!

I would hide out for a while too if the basis for my entire, professional life was exposed as lies.

Adam Lambert about to be irrelevant....it's about time

There's more bad news for heavily-make-uped provocateur and would-be reality entertainer Adam Lambert...

From TheFeed -- ABC cancels another Adam Lambert performance

The network has two more Adam Lambert appearances, this time on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "New Year's Rockin Eve."

On his Twitter account, Lambert wrote, "Yes, sadly friends, ABC has canceled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE. :( don't blame them. It's the FCC heat ... I AM doing Leno though. And lookin into something for NYE ... It'll all blow over. Let's focus on being positive! :)"

There's no word on whether Adam's statement, "It'll all blow over" was meant as double entendre. Is it just me or can this talentless moron not go away fast enough?

I know what you're thinking. "But Ed, you're just anti-gay".
Wrong you are!
I couldn't care less about his orientation. I don't appreciate any entertainer cramming overtly sexual, graphic content down my throat....and that's not meant as double entendre.

Exit question: are the ridiculous, skinny ties from the 80's coming back?

Miley Cyrus wants some f-ing pie

Over at Fark, they're running the annual singing-toy-says-cuss-words story we all enjoy mocking so much during the holiday season. Here's the news report....

View more news videos at: http://www.nbcmiami.com/video.

I'm guessing 3 year old girl learned the F-word from white-trash mom.

No bailouts for big-media!!!

There's a reason the framers pitted the media and the government against each other in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, and troll Henry Waxman ignores it....

From Hotair -- Rep. Henry Waxman trekked from Capitol Hill to Federal Trade Commission headquarters today to deliver a message to journalists and news consumers: All of you need to reach a consensus about working with the government in order to bail out the struggling news industry.

The California Democrat, who chairs the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, didn’t say it quite so bluntly, but his point was clear. “Government’s going to have to be involved, in one way or the other,” to save journalism from an ongoing “market failure” that will only worsen without intervention.

Any media outlet that is beholden to the federal government for financial subsidies is subject to the inevitable, heavy-handed expectation of favorable coverage of that party's activities. The threat of withdrawing the subsidies would constitute the gravest of conflicts-of-interest where even-handed news coverage is concerned. A government that controls the media, is by definition, totalitarian and liberals like Waxman, by their nature, want to control everything.

I defy you to show me a more unattractive man than Henry Waxman.....I defy you!

Shameless plug

As some of you may know, my brother-in-law Chris Fryar is the drummer for the Zac Brown Band. They were nominated yesterday for three Grammy's...one for New Artist, one for Country Album, "The Foundation", and one for vocal performance by a duo or group....cool!

That's Chris in the front left.

Hiding the Decline

You may have seen this already but it's worth a look....

You know the end of your movement is near when you start getting spoofed and nobody, nobody takes seriously anymore, your claims.

Thanks to Michelle Malkin.

Turn-about is fair play, I guess

I found this sad story over at rt.com, via Linkiest....

An Azerbaijani man has come up with an unorthodox way of getting even with a pedophile who raped his son. He tracked down the rapist, sexually assaulted him on camera, and distributed the footage.

Now the father and the rapist are under arrest for the same crimes....how messed up is that? I totally get that this father had to avenge the rape of his eight year-old son and, I even get his eye-for-an-eye punishment, sort of but, if it were my son, I'd figure out a way to kill the rapist so that he knew why I was killing him but, without getting caught. Now the kid, who needs his father right now, is without him.

Just to be clear, if you prey on children, you deserve whatever punishment anybody can dish out to you....even an horrifically painful death.

Handle the problem, not the symptom

If the idea is to prevent teen suicide-by-train, you're doing it all wrong....

Residents of Palo Alto, Calif., are in mourning. Within the past six months, four students from the same local high school have killed themselves.(by train) Now, volunteers — some parents, some not — are maintaining a safety watch, trying to prevent another tragedy.

Hey, I have an idea. Why don't these parents try being parents for a change by reaching out to their troubled, suicidal teens, rather than socializing down at the train yard. There are a million ways to kill yourself, if the trains are unavailable. They'll jump in front of a bus, or off a cliff, or whatever.
