Long, Long Ago

May 3, 2011

Sometime near the middle of the last century I was sent by my parents into the cruel world to study at the gubmint schools. My task was to learn to read, do mathematical procedures, write a decent sentence, maybe learn a little scientific stuff like the periodic table. How many of you said, “What’s a periodic table?”? I learned that in third grade, see here.

Things went fine for a few years then I had a little trouble with one of my teachers. Apparently the “progressive” gubmint schools had decided that I needed to know how to speak a foreign language. I didn’t agree and a melee ensued. That was unacceptable and I was sent to the office and my parents were called. I knew I would be ok once my parents got there. Not so. They sided with the teacher without question. They didn’t even want to know what was going on they just wanted me to straighten out and do my school work. Period.

A lot of people now are asking what happened to that? Why are kids so unruly now? You hear some of the older people telling how it was when they were in school and how none of this was tolerated. You didn’t come to school dressed like a bum, you didn’t cuss at the teacher, you were always in class on time with your tools to do the days work. On and on and on like that they go questioning why it can’t be that way now.

But then there is the other side of the coin that asks what are they teaching my kids now? Why do they need the school to tell them how to use a condom? Why are they giving out condoms? I don’t want my kid to learn about homos. What is this metric crap? No union propaganda for my kids. And on it goes into infinity. It seems every time you turn around they are exposing your kids to something else you object to. Where does it end?

Do you think there is a connection here? Or do you think the kids should just sit there and listen to this crap and you will take care of it at the PTA meeting. Oh. You’ve never been to a PTA meeting? What about a school board meeting? Have you ever run for the school board? You don’t have to have kids to be on the school board. Were you aware of that?

Well. It looks like we’ve stumbled on a few flies in the ointment here. If you’re not involved in the school board process, who is? What about the PTA? Do they even have one anymore? Maybe you should start one. Is there a law for that kind of thing? Do you really care? You see, here’s the thing, I never used that second language. Not even once. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

The Price Of Cable TV

May 2, 2011

My internet was so slow. I needed to upgrade, and you know what that entailed, upgrading my darn cable TV. I hate cable TV because they got Barack Hussein Obama elected and my payments helped. I abhor that.

When I was a little kid I remember the cable company coming around to each and every door with their hat in their hands practically begging us to sign up for cable. I can clearly remember them promising my father, “Yes, Mr. Schroeder, you will never see another commercial ad once you sign up for cable and start paying for TV.” What the heck (WTH) happened there?

PAY TV!? It was such an absurd concept back then. Who the heck would PAY for TV? Certainly not my father, he was too astute for that. It’ll never catch on. Oh how I wish he would have been right. Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Actually I think I should qualify that by adding, never underestimate the stupidity of the American people now that all these Euro-pukes (Soros) are integrated into our ranks.

So actually, he was right. I don’t think cable would be so wide-spread were it not for the fact that you can’t get decent internet service with out it. I know I would opt for just internet over internet stuck with gayble…I mean cable. And we only get three channels broadcast out here.

Now that we’ve “upgraded” we get a lot more channels. All those channels that I used to roll through on the TV Guide channel and I would look at it and say, “Man, I’m glad we aren’t paying for all that crap.” And why does the TV Guide channel find it necessary to show a movie. Not enough people were coming there to see what was on? Is it just me or does that seem stupid?

So. What is the cost of cable TV? What has it cost this culture? What has it cost this Country? What has it cost your community? What has it cost the American family? What… has it cost you? Are you really supposed to know about a drug bust three thousand miles from your house? Do you really need to see Prince Chuckleheads kid get hitched in real-time? I don’t even want to get into Chairman Zero (Obama) hunting down and killing Osama (Is it just me or do they seem to be related?). So, until next time, consider the cost, as well as the quality, of the information you are getting via your cable tv. Then, screw environmentalists.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

April 29, 2011

As I turn to “The Hill” I am disappointed to see a headline that says, “House Republicans mull plan to hike debt ceiling every two months“. And I think to myself WTH are they thinking? This is not in the plan. If they start pulling this kind of crap we need to start recalling their butts immediately. Their last line of defence is to keep the libs at bay. They don’t have to do anything for two years just as long as they keep Chairman Zero and his merry band of booty bandits from doing anything. That is how they can keep their phony baloney jobs.

So I start reading this thing and it reads like a touchy feely hug fest of “building allies” with all the attending BS. After a good puke I think to myself, “This needs to stop. NOW!”

The article is by some guy named Russell Berman so I start trying to analyze his name. Like I will be able to tell if he’s a lib or if he’s lying to me just from his name. I have no idea. So the “champion” of the idea is some guy named Grover Norquist. Again, nothing. Anyway, Norquist says, “My argument is, you give them two months at a time, because each time you could get something reasonable,” and I come unglued (that would be when I came up with this title).

So now we’re going to trade our future for a few trinkets? The fact that someone who is considered conservative by this Berman would even consider such an arrangement sickens me. Here it is straight out. This guy is acting like we are so lame, so impotent, that we have to “bargain” with these %*^&$# socialists. SCREW THEM! We realize that you are burdened with a bunch of rinos, just hold them at bay and we WILL send you help in 2012. It’s just that simple. You are not going to be a hero like this. You are going to screw it all up like this.

Now Norquist is not a House Republican, he heads some group. The only House Republican pinned to this is Tim Huelskamp from Kansas who said, “It is the only leverage that we have over a Senate and a president that is seemingly unconcerned about the over-spending.” He would not support any bill that allows borrowing past Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year. “I would support a much shorter time-frame.” HEY! Kansas! Curb your congresscritter! I’ve already dashed him off a nasty-gram for what that will be worth.

The story goes on… and on… and on. Followed by many comments (from those that I suspect have been drinking heavily) but never really gives any more information that is good, with the possible exception that our only savior may be the messiah himself. Yes, Mr. Berman postulates that Zero himself may be the fly in the ointment and will not participate in these short-term debt limit negotiations. Thank God for that if it is true.

For now I suggest you e-mail your Representatives and tell them this is a no-go and advise them that if they would like to serve more than half a term they should start thinking about keeping these jackals from spending more money we don’t have. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Climate Dead

April 28, 2011

“Climate is dead as a major political issue for the foreseeable future.” That from our Dear Leader Chairman Zero (Obama). According to the Baltimore Sun (which I won’t link to here because it keeps having pop-ups in front of what I’m trying to read in a desperate attempt to keep it’s liberal hide afloat) during his weekly radio address (Zero has a weekly radio address?) about energy Zero said nothing about climate change. Maybe he is smarter than I think.

So, sports fans, what have we learned when Zero says something is over? That’s right, it’s time to CYA because he’s getting ready to give it to you from another angle. He’s got to be extremely pleased with the price of fuel. And now they’ve taken to blaming the oil companies. “Record earnings” is all you hear. Well that don’t really shake down like it sounds and the “gubmint subsidies” are pure lies. You see, gubmint subsidies are when  the gubmint (by force) takes money from one person (me) and gives it to another person (welfare recipient). What the oil companies are getting is tax credits. In other words they get to keep more of their “record earnings”. Do you see the difference.

Anyway, let’s get back to the climate issue. When Zero says it’s dead we know from experience that it will be coming from another angle. So, all we have to do is keep our eyes peeled for it. Several possibilities present themselves not the least of which is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They still have not been defunded. Why is that? That would be a fine question for your Senators and Representatives.

“I believe there is nothing to fear from common-sense use of the Clean Air Act to begin to put this country in the direction of moving towards addressing our greenhouse-gas emissions,” That pant load is from none other that the talented Lisa Jackson. I know. I know. Nobody knows who the heck she is, she’s the administrator of the EPA. So here it comes already. So in his weekend address (Really?) Zero implies it’s over. Then on Tuesday Jackson says what now? Don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you want to sit there and play Farmville instead of e-mailing your good for nothing Senator don’t come crying to me when they are slapping a tax on your beer farts.

The EPA continues on its tear of stupidity by attacking yet another contributor to your enjoyment of beer, the noble refrigerator. Yes, apparently, since the beginning of time refrigerators have been made with insulation in them to help keep the beer cold. This insulation is filled with tiny bubbles. The tiny bubbles are not filled with air, they are filled with a deadly gas that will cause the Earth to come to a boil if released into the environment. If you believe that I have a “Drill in the Gulf for Free” card you can buy.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the ocean levels are going down and both of the warmi scientists have agreed to ignore the data (David Mann, see video). Well I had to link to something today. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

The Cost Of Fuel

April 27, 2011

I received an e-mail the other day showing the price of fuel in Riyadh as nine cents a gallon. Here it’s shaking out a little cheaper, it’s looking like about four cents a gallon. Either way I just want to puke. Our price is around four bucks and Chairman Zero (Obama) says he can’t do anything about it. Yet we were told by the Ministry of Propaganda (media) that Bush could do something about it? So how is it, ABC? Can they or can’t they? I’m sick of your liberal lies.

Look at the face on this one (picture courtesy of The Drudge Report). Are you going to sit there and tell me he isn’t up to something? He told us he wanted fuel prices at four bucks a gallon two years ago, he just didn’t want it so fast. Well now he’s got his four bucks a gallon. Are you happy? I know I’m not. I happen to know that he can do something to make the prices go down, but we’ll talk about that later.

Right now I wanted to let you know that I will be taking off May 9 through May 13. I have purchased a great big Chevy (Obama Motors) truck and I am going to drive it 3000 miles just to see how it feels. All the price estimators say it will cost about $600.00. I’ll believe that when I see it.

In an attempt to keep fuel prices low South Carolina has resorted to communism. The gubmint there will soon be telling the fuel suppliers how much they can charge. I know if I was the guy with the fuel and I was told to just go ahead and lose money I would put out a sign that said I was “out of gas” and just sit on it. Do you think any of the suppliers in SC will go that route? Here‘s a story about it.

Now Zero could do something to make this all just go away. But he won’t. I’m taking bets and laying odds. You see, the reason fuel is four to nine cents a gallon in Riyadh is because they are an oil-producing country. They have a large reserve of oil to tap. You want to hear something funny? We have a larger reserve to tap… but we won’t. The environmentalists have got Zero in their back pocket and he does their bidding. Thus the moratorium in the gulf.

I don’t want to get like the boy who cried wolf but I never want you to forget that this whole fuel thing is a pant load. Every so often I want to get one off to remind you who is behind this “recession”. Here’s a quick pop quiz to piss you off. How long has it been since we built a refinery in America? Answer: Thirty years. Who is drilling in the gulf? Answer: Brazil and China. What would be the easy way to get the oil in the gulf? Answer: We can get to it from our shores. We don’t even have to drill in the deep water. Why are we not drilling on our shores? Answer: Because the libs (environmentalists) have the politicians in their back pockets. Do we even need to drill on our shores? Answer: No. There are plenty of wells all over America that are capped and not producing because the gubmint ordered it. Do you know the reason why? Neither do I. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Is It A Cycle

April 26, 2011

Since 1998 the “global” temperature has been dropping. I don’t know exactly what giant brains are spewing out that statistic but it seems to be coming from the liberal left and they are keeping it quiet unless it suits their purpose of the day. When I was a youngster I remember it getting very cold and snowing a lot. I remember the “scientists” in their laboratories claiming we were heading for an ice age. What the heck (WTH)? I don’t remember if that was before or after LSD was made illegal but I really don’t think it matters as acid flashes would still do the job just fine.

Then the end of the last century was filled with the old sages carrying their “The End Is Near” signs all over the place. I just had to go back and correct my spelling of all from al. That would be because as I was writing that line Algore came to mind. Funny, huh? His sign was a whole animated movie. Anyway, Al and the sages were adamant about global warming being the end of the world. Some even grew nads and gave us dates, most of which have come and gone but we do have one next year that they are sure is a shoe in because their sacred Mayans did it for them. Then one of their heathen gods, Nostradamus, confirmed it in one of his vague and sketchy quatrains. Good stuff.

In the early 1900’s, which I wrote about here, we had the ice age scare then in the 1920’s and ’30’s we had the warming scare, (Remember the dust bowl?), then the ice age of the 1970’s, then the warming scare of the 1990″s. Here‘s a more recent article on that. Are you starting to get the picture? It’s the weather. If you don’t like it wait a few minutes, it’ll change. How many States use that as their official weather joke?

The thing that really puzzles me is the number of people out there that can’t even remember their own lifetime. WTH happened in the ’90’s? What happened in the ’80’s? What happened in the ’70’s? It often makes me want to puke. It’s like the argument goes in a circle. OOHH! Just like the weather. Who said that?

This idiotic debate over funding the EPA has got to stop. We sent these elected officials there for a reason. If they can’t get it done we will get them some help come 2012. If they still can’t get it done we will find someone who can in 2014. My point in this whole big story is not to get discouraged. My whole life the congress has been eroding my freedoms. It has been leading up to the day when we have that face off at my front door to the death. Finally, here we are with a chance to take it all back. Don’t let it go. It has taken the commies over a hundred years to get to this point. I think the progress we have made so far is very good. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Real Estate Typhoons

April 25, 2011

As real estate typhoons our congresscritters leave a lot to be desired. If you were a real estate tycoon and you had some real estate that you owned free and clear and paid no taxes on do you think you could do pretty good? Yeah. It sounds like a sweet deal, huh? Well guess who’s screwing this up big time? That’s right, the same people who ran a whore house into the ground, our federal gubmint. All owned free and clear because they spent your tax dollars on them. All tax-free because they are the tax man. All hemorrhaging money because they are idiots.

How the heck can this be you say? Well let me tell you. First off I remember reading somewhere that our gubmint shouldn’t even be owning real estate for any reason. I guess we’ve found out why. But back to your query, how can any body lose money on real estate like that. Well let me tell you another thing. They all have buildings on them. 14,000 buildings. You know, the kind of thing Carlton Sheets says you can get rich with. Carlton says you can lose money pretty good on vacant land unless you have a plan for it but improved properties? You’ve got to be pretty stupid to lose on them. Enter the gubmint.

Again you say, “HOW?!” Well here‘s the story, you tell me. That’s right, maintenance. I don’t know. You keep reading in that article and the savings could be in the tens of billions. They went on about “underused” buildings and so on and so forth. What the heck (WTH)? Are they total idiots? Apparently so, they need to form a committee to sell these things. How about we just pay a real estate broker to get rid of them for us. You know, if we gave them away we would be money to the good? Hows about we just auction them off to the highest bidder?

It comes down to 1.2 million buildings. Is there even that many buildings in the world? With an annual operating cost of $19 billion. WTH? The official quote is, “the bureaucratic process of selling off and consolidating federal property is lengthy and complex. ” At the risk of sounding juvenile let me just go ahead and say why? Do we need a blue ribbon commission to tackle the tough issues? WTH? Highest bidder, that’s what we need.

You know, I really could use $19 billion right now. What with the price of gas and everything. I just don’t know how much more I can take. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Happy Earth Day

April 22, 2011

Earth day, what the heck (WTH) does that mean? Earth day was founded as an environmental (there’s that dirty word again) “teach in” (WTH?) in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson (enough said?). Dang, that sentence was full of feces. I don’t know where to start. Let’s start with the human, Gaylord Nelson. Not a totally bad guy. A lib Senator from Wisconsin that died a few years back. He was actually in WWII and was Governor of Wisconsin for a while.

Teach in. WTH is that? Oh heck, this is a cluster. See here. It’s not really defined. It’s one of those things that the libs would like to keep “sketchy”. They start off by calling it a complicated issue. I’m sick of this terminology. What’s so complicated? They are trying to make it complicated but if you get back to the basics it’s not complicated at all. It’s the Earth.

The “refusal to limit the discussion to a specific frame of time”, WTH does that mean? It sounds like we’ll just go on and on and on. Actually that’s a pretty good definition of the lib BS. They do just want to go on and on and on…

Finally, when I see that much about Berkley, Viet Nam, and Ann Arbor, I know it’s time to move on. None of those things are good and all of them are communist. So there you have it, a communist, never-ending discussion about dirt founded by a probable fag. Was that too much? Screw it.

So Chairman Zero (Obama) chooses today to end his three-day extravaganza of fuel consumption (53,300 gallons) while campaigning for 2012. So in other words we just paid $180,000.00 minimum to fly his good-for-nothing butt around the country while he tries to get re-elected. See here. I really hate these guys. I don’t care who they are if they’re going to do this crap they need to pay for it themselves. Now I just want to jump around for a few minutes yelling obscenities.

Ok, I’m back. I think I’m having a stroke but I feel better than I did when I first read this crap. I laid on the floor doing the squirrel for five minutes after that. I think the worst part of this is that I have no recourse. At least for the Human Achievement Hour I can turn all my lights on for an hour. Here, Zero has already beat me to it. There is no way I can afford to burn fifty thousand plus gallons of fuel, much less in three days. But when it’s all said and done you know what? Who is still really in charge? It’s Good Friday. Jesus died at 3:00 PM. Until the day after Easter, screw environmentalists.

World Car Of The Year

April 21, 2011

I’ve never heard of such a thing but Carlos Ghosn, the CEO and Chairman of Nissan, the maker of the Leaf, thinks it’s a prestigious award. Apparently the winner is chosen by a panel of automotive journalists from Asia, Europe, and North America.

Journalists? Well that explains quite a bit. Are they really the ones that should be making such a call? I mean maybe they can write about a vehicle but what do they really know? Can any of them even find a spark plug, much less change it? I thought maybe the Society of Automotive Engineers or some mechanics organization. But no. Journalists. Decisions being made by people like this is what has us in the mess we’re in.

You have to wonder why they would even choose such a vehicle. There is, of course, the obvious. It’s an electric car. Yep, just plug her in and go on your merry way. Eight hours later you’re good to go a hundred miles. What the heck (WTH)? Two kind of ugly questions come to mind here. One, eight hours charge to go a hundred miles? And two, where does the electricity come from? The first is just what it is but the second… well let’s just move to the next item for now.

Algore has got to be shaking with rage over this. “Apple Named Least Green Tech Company” is the headline to the article. Algore is on Apple’s board of directors. How sad is that? Mr. “My mansion only has fifty-three bathrooms” is running a dirty company according to his cronies over at greenpiece. I know, I know, I spelled it that way because they are a piece. Of what, you fill in.

“So,” you ask, “how could a company with such an environmentally aware board member, a company that uses sheep to maintain their lawn, how can this company be on a list of “dirty companies”? I know, it’s just so darn funny. Isn’t it? Mr. “Lying sack of you fill it in” in charge of a dirty company. As decreed by greenpiece, no less. Well, it seems that they rely heavily on… wait for it… wait for it… electricity. That’s right sports fans that universal, magical, mythical, mystical delight that brings you incandescent bulbs and arc welders is once again at the root of Algore’s problems.

But, let us extrapolate. If dirty, filthy, rotten electricity makes Algore a bad boy, where then does that leave poor old Mr. Ghosn and his filthy Leaf? Not to mention the “journalists”. As the British would say, “That’s a bit of a sticky wicket.” I don’t know what that means but from the context I’ve heard it used in I’m sure it fits here and it sure sounds funny. As Rush Limbaugh likes to say, “The leaf is a coal-fired car.” As Larry the cable guy says, “I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.” Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Wanton Destruction

April 20, 2011

When I was a kid there were these good-for-nothing kids that used to run around the neighborhood doing bad things just to do it. They did things like putting dog crap in a bag and setting it on fire on someones front porch then ringing the doorbell and running. They would throw eggs at houses. Or they would throw toilet paper all over someones front yard, in the trees and everything. But one thing in particular that they used to do was put sugar in people’s gas tanks.

Now I have never experienced the sugar in the tank trick, and I have never known anyone to have experienced this. But the word on the street is that it can cause a lot of trouble. Again, I have no proof that it does, but if it did, what would you say should happen to the individuals responsible for such actions? Depending on the damage done the penalty should be equally severe, right? Suppose they did it to millions of cars, then what?

At the gas station today I was filling up to the tune of a c-note ($100.00 bill) when I notice the guy next to me filling can after can. Now I go to a station that only has ethanol-free fuel? So I ask the guy, “Why so many cans?” Well, that set him off. Apparently he has several small engines around his house as well as a few boats. He has never read the owners manuals so he just used regular fuel in them. So after spending over fourteen hundred dollars to repair ethanol damage in the last two weeks, in short, he was pissed. I come home and learn that the neighbor has two lawn tractors that are in the shop for the same thing. Some of the people I work with have confided in me that they too are experiencing similar ethanol damage. Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?

Algore has a law degree and he has stated that ethanol was a mistake. Do you think he might be trying to distance himself from the scene of the crime? We let politicians, and environmentalists, and union thugs, and liberals, and socialists, and communists get away with this stuff over and over but had it been the derelict kid from the neighborhood where would he be? I’m so, so sick and tired of this crap. Why is it that we don’t hold these vandals, and that’s just what they are, vandals, accountable for this stuff? They owe me money and I want it. And the worst part is… it continues. That’s right! They haven’t stopped it yet. In fact NASCAR’s endorsing it.

It used to be that you invented some hair-brained thing and you tested it. Sometimes it seemed like forever, just ask the AIDS people how that drug testing crap is going. So how did this crap get stuck in the American fuel supply so fast. I say American fuel supply because nobody else has it. Does that make you happy? So back to my question, what do you think should happen to those responsible? Until next time, screw environmentalists.
