MoveOn wants me!

Just got a phone call from someone in 347-land, wanting me to help get "Barack Obama" re-elected.

I told the lady, who said "We are doing everything we can to get President Obama reelected, can you help?" that I was doing everything I could to get that son-of-a-buck out of there, so please go away.

I'm afraid I just blew my undercover credibility with I guess this means they won't send me any more Osama bumper stickers.


Osama ad

I wonder how many seeing this will recognize that the Demonrats are responsible for most of the troubles they are singing about?

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?

Charles Woods, the father Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the publically broadcast memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya).

When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that you’re son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Shock poll: Obama could lose Illinois, Romney leads in Chicago suburbs

President Barack Obama could lose his home state of Illinois in November, a new poll shows.

A poll conducted by Illinois-based pollster and political strategist Michael McKeon found Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 37 percent in Cook County, the home of Chicago. That puts him ahead by a far thinner margin than expected in a county he should be winning handsomely.

Atlas Shrugged Part 2

My son and I went up to Janesville and saw the second installment of "Atlas Shrugged" last night. Including the couple who were there at the ending credits, a total of eight people saw the movie that we know of.

It's too bad more people are not getting exposed to this story. The delay between Part 1 and now must be a big part of the reason for the low turnout, as may be the fact that the cast changed completely between episodes.

The movie itself is much better in terms of Hollywood movie-making than Part 1. Much more use of CGI and it looked a whole lot more professional. The actors did a good job.

If you get a chance to see this, do so. I hope the remainder of the story does not drag out too long in production - if indeed there IS more coming.

The REAL birth certificate?

This is going around the email lists:

The REAL Kenyan birth certificate.

The hospital's certificate

School records.

Too bad Snopes says it's made up. It sure is juicy.

This has to stop!

Islam is out of control in Dearborn, Michigan:

First, Christians were banned in Dearbornistan. Now, it's Jews who are illegal. Why not just declare the place an outpost of Saudi Arabia and be done with the whole business.
"On 9-14-2012, Dearborn Fordson High School principal called the police on me for driving with 2 Israeli flags on my truck.
When the students began their assault he rolled down his window asking them to stop. After they pulled him over the police used the rolled down window as a pretext to accuse him of instigating the altercation.  While being questioned by the police in front of the high school the reader received death threats. The police denied hearing them though the individuals involved were only a few feet away.
"The Dearborn police were one car behind me when this student threw a bottle on my windshield. The police did not stop the student, but instead stopped me for 30 minutes asking me why I would display Israeli flags on my truck."
Every Muslim who turns violent because of such an incident ought to be jailed for at least a year. I'm sure there are Muslim clerics in the jails to lead them in prayer five times a day.

Stealing Ohio?

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black...

Just got this from my good friends at
Dear MoveOn member,

Whichever polls you're reading, one thing is crystal clear: the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney could not be any closer.

While the national polls have fluctuated, the electoral college math indicates that the race will likely come down to the small set of swing states that the New York Times' Nate Silver refers to as "Obama's firewall." And none of these states will likely be more decisive than Ohio, where President Obama currently has a narrow lead, and which no Republican has ever won the White House without.

But there's something insidious happening out of the spotlight in Ohio right now, and it could literally cost President Obama the election.

Here's what we know so far:
  • Anonymous groups have launched a voter-intimidation billboard campaign to scare people across Columbus and Cleveland—two Democratic strongholds—out of voting. Our media team tells us it's a "saturation-level" advertising campaign that goes both deep and wide, promising prison time and a $10,000 fine for "voter fraud." 1
  • Ohio's Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted tried to eliminate all weekend and evening early voting hoursand even tried taking his fight to suppress the vote all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.2
  • Tea Party groups have already tried to purge over 2,100 voters from the rolls in Ohio, including students who didn't list their dorm room numbers on their registration forms—an oversight that does NOT invalidate their registrations.3
Add it all up, and it's a recipe for confused voters and chaos at the polls across the state on Election Day. That's why we've come up with an emergency All Hands On Deck 96-hour effort to make sure progressive Ohio voters know the best way to fight back against these voter suppressors is to cast an early vote in the four-day stretch before Election Day.
Can you chip in $5 right now to fund our All Hands on Deck GOTV plan in Ohio?
To reverse the effects GOP voter suppression in Ohio, we're ready to launch this plan right now:
  • Digital billboards across the greater Columbus and Cleveland areas telling voters: Don't be intimidated by Republican fear tactics. Vote.
  • Targeted radio ads in the final 96 hours informing voters about their right to vote early, and how.
  • A massive Facebook and Google campaign to make sure that every Ohioan who goes online the weekend before the election sees a reminder with instructions of where and when they can cast an early vote.
Let's make sure there's not a replay of John Kerry's defeat in Ohio in 2004.
Click here to pitch in $5 right now.
Thanks for all you do.

If voter fraud has criminal penalties, the only people "scared" by those billboards ought to be Demonrat professional voters.

If people can't get to the polls during normal voting hours, that's why absentee ballots were invented. Use them.

Students in dorm rooms are likely NOT Ohio citizens, and if they are in college, they damn well can learn how to follow instructions on a voter registration forms.

All it all up and possibly you get an honest election in Ohio.

As usual, they use footnotes referring back to themselves, and avoid any mention of Demonrat tactics involving graveyards, free wine and cigarettes to skid row derelicts, Black Panther "poll watchers", etc. etc. etc...

A beginning?

From the Chicago Tribune:

ROCKFORD – In the only state that doesn’t let its residents walk around with concealed firearms, a northwest Illinois county could become the testing ground for gun enthusiasts who want a clean sweep for their Second Amendment rights.

A grass-roots movement in Winnebago County is taking aim at Illinois’ long-held position, setting up a possible showdown between gun-rights advocates and a sympathetic state’s attorney who believes the effort won’t pass legal muster.

The county has scheduled a pair of hearings this month to determine whether it should allow people to carry guns within Winnebago borders. The proposed ordinance – which was written after officials received a petition with more than 11,000 signatures this year – would contradict state law.
"Contradict state law"?

"All laws repugnant to the Constitution are null and void" Marbury vs. Madison.

Since Winnebago County is abutting Rock County, dare I hope for reciprocal CCW?

Thompson isn't ideal, but at least he's not Tammy Baldwin!

Chad Lee:
See comment for Tommy Thompson, except Lee isn't half RINO.

Beth Schmidt:
Ditto. We need less government, less interference with businesses, less regulation, and less taxes - not more of the same!

Agenda 21 is also an issue with us who own farmland - we MUST stop this creeping threat to our American way of life.

50th Anniversary of Vietnam American Legion Tribute

50 years ago, we were involved in another war.

I was lucky not to be called up in the last Vietnam draft. My birthday was drawn, but they reached their quota before they got to 'K'. I didn't have any exemptions - if I had to go, I was going to enlist in the Naval Reserve. I had made contacts with the recruiters at Glenview Naval Air Station north of Chicago. My Dad was in WWII in the Navy, so it would have been something of a tradition.

If I had been drafted into the Army, I would have lasted five minutes on the ground over there - I'm not that much of an athlete, couldn't run to save my life, and am blind as a bat without my glasses. I figured that life on a ship would be a safer arrangement for me as well as the others in my group.

Almost joined the Navy again in 1978 - went through all the tests, the next step was the physical - and found out that I was one year too old to try for nuclear power school. So, never served.

I have great respect for anyone who did serve. I never could understand how anyone could act the way too many so-called Americans did when our guys came home from 'Nam.

Perennial favorite

"Smart" car? Stupid driver!

This morning, on the way to the bank and hardware store, I happened to spy a Smart car coming out of Riverside Park. The driver made an un-signaled turn out of the park into traffic, then an un-signaled lane change in front of a much larger car, and finally yet another un-signaled lane change into the southbound left turn lane at the White St. light..

After attaining the left turn lane, the driver turned on a turn signal. A RIGHT turn signal.

There was a "Coexist" bumper sticker on the back. The driver turned out to be a short-haired female of perhaps 30 years. From the vehicle and the sticker, I can probably be safe in surmising the presence of a liberal, most likely a registered Demonrat Osama supporter.

How does one become an adult without knowing when and which way to flip the turn signal stalk in a car? For that matter, how does one survive to early middle age and still be stupid enough to purchase an overgrown roller skate to drive in traffic?

Unknown caller

Finally slept in - woke at 8 AM. First time in YEARS I've slept in.

As I was getting out of bed, the phone rings. "Private caller". I pick up.


*sounds of a computer dialer passing a live call to the boiler room*
*Thick accent, possibly (East) Indian* "Is *stumble* Charles *stumble* *badly mispronounced* there?"

Standard reply: "Who's calling?"

"This is John *mumble* from *mumble* Indian Nation."

Now I get into it. "You do realize this is a 'no call' number? That it's early on a Saturday? I don't know what you are selling or representing, but you've just lost me. Never call here again. Got it?"

I hung up.

I wonder if it did any good. Sure felt good.

"Piss Christ" is back:

WH Silent Over Demands to Denounce ‘Piss Christ’ Artwork

Sep 21, 2012
By Todd Starnes
Religious groups are blasting President Obama for not condemning am anti-Christian art display set to appear in New York City and one Republican lawmaker said he is “fed up with the administration’s double standard and religious hypocrisy.

“Piss Christ,” once branded as a “deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity,” will be displayed at the Edward Tyler Nahem Gallery in Manhattan on Thursday. The artwork features a “photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine.”

The artwork debuted in 1989 and was funded through prize money provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. The art gallery hosting the retrospective salute to Andres Serrano is privately owned.

Religious groups and some lawmakers have already started sounding off – and making comparisons to the controversy over a recent anti-Muslim film. The low budget movie “Innocence of Muslims” sparked violent and deadly clashes across the globe.

It also brought strong rebukes, condemnations and apologies from President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a host of administration officials.
I wonder what would happen if someone made an artwork consisting of the artist filling a tub with his own urine and submerging a Koran in it?

Some advice:

Insane pollsters

Insane, stupid, or some horrible ulterior motive?

I have had a full dozen computerized survey calls now from some outfit called "Independent Voter Research", at a "private" number. The computer asks for my sex, age, race, and political party - then asks if I am likely to vote or not, and if I would vote for Romney or Osama, and for Thompson or Tammy Gay Baldwin. Then they give their number as 866 540-3140 - which when called tells me they wanted to get my opinions, apologizes for missing me, and hangs up.

What earthly good is it for a survey to call the same phone number twelve times over three weeks, asking the exact same questions?

After the second call, I've been giving random answers. Or, you can keep the computer on the line possibly forever by repeatedly giving an invalid response.

A little Google research turns up this, amongst other hits. There are claims the Romney campaign is responsible for this, but WHY would they? It's certainly not going to convince anyone to change their vote, and I bet lots of people getting these calls are screwing with them like I am.

New scandal

This scandal could dwarf 'Fast and Furious'

Did White House arm al-Qaida operatives who killed U.S. ambassador?

JERUSALEM – While echoes of the “Fast and Furious” scandal still resound in the White House, another administration decision at the heart of Obama’s Mideast policy may prove even more explosive.

Almost entirely missing from the debate surrounding the anti-U.S. attacks in Libya is the administration’s policy of arming jihadists to overthrow Mideast governments. But in the case of Libya, the arming of jihadists may have directly resulted in the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the subsequent murder of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, private security employees and former U.S. Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

After changing its story multiple times, the White House finally conceded the deadly assault on the U.S. consulate was a planned attack linked to al-Qaida, as per information released by national intelligence agencies.

The admission prompted Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., to call for the resignation of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice for pushing the narrative that the attacks were part of a spontaneous uprising.
Could this be one of Romney's promised "zingers"?
