Classic Joke

Bob and his friend harry were going hunting for a couple of weeks, after not getting anything in the first week they decided to hunt closer to home.

Still after not getting anything they decided to go back to Bob's house...

On the way back Bob noticed that there was a strange car in his drive way next to his wife's car. Bob asked his friend to look through the sniper lens and see if he could see anything...His friend replied

Harry: "Your wife is cheating on you with another man!"

Bob: "That bitch, shoot her in her head and shoot him in his dick so that he can never do this to another mans wife again!!"

Harry: "Okay cool, I can get that in one shot."

Political Funnies



Christmas Day Bomber Security Breach, Obama Takes Swipe At Bush

From The Lonely Conservative:

You didn’t expect Obama to not take a swipe at his predecessor, did you?

After realizing he looked like an incompetent boob for hiding in Hawaii after a terrorist boarded a US plane with his underwear loaded with explosives, The One’s advisors must have told him he needed to issue a stronger statement and defend Janet Napolitano. Sans tie, he made another statement today.

President Barack Obama said a “potential catastrophic breach” allowed the alleged Christmas Day bomber to set his attack into motion, as it emerged that multiple U.S. agencies met in mid-November to discuss a warning from the accused bomber’s father.

The father of terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab met on Nov. 19 with the Central Intelligence Agency at the U.S. embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, and told of his son’s likely radicalization, according to U.S. officials.

That led to a broader meeting the next day in which the information was shared with representatives of the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the State Department, a U.S. official said. Officials said it is unclear whether intelligence officials in Washington then effectively analyzed the information gathered in Nigeria.

I guess it was George Bush’s policy for CIA investigators to ignore warnings from the parents of radical Islamists.

“It’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.”

OK, the "system" that has been in place since 9/11 has worked. But wanting to close Gitmo, backing out of Iraq, worrying more about your rating than the American public, lending billions of our dollars to lenders who haven't helped anyone and wanting to talk to our enemies instead of taking action has worked? Come one now.

I used to live in Arizona and I didn't like Janet Napolitano. Just because you governed a border state doesn't mean you know whats going on. She was at constant odds with Sheriff Joe who is bad ass (also known as the toughest Sheriff in America because he actually does his job and deports illegals). And twice that I can recall that she has back tracked on actions or statements because of goofs in the Homeland Security Department since taking over.

Again this administration has taken another swipe and playing the blame game instead of taking action. You're a year in basically and most of what is in place began when you got elected and your "transition team" started negotiating the bailouts. I'd hate to see what happens if we were to ever get attacked again. God forbid.

In ObamaLand, the buck never stops with Obama.

Socialism Creeps In As America Sleeps

Read this article:

“Democrats on the take and in the dead of night pass an execrable piece of legislation that they haven’t read, the public doesn’t want and only socialists could love. What has happened to this country?”

Let's Rock Out

I like posting the videos of songs I liked/loved. Here's one to rock out to enjoy on Sunday. Look for more to show up on a regular basis in between all the craziness I normally post.

More Pork The Government Wants To Pass Because They Think We're Idiots

Citizen’s Against Government Waste (CAGW) put together a list of the most egregious examples of pork in the defense budget. It’s disgusting.

# $3,385,000,000 added anonymously for four projects. This figure equates to 44.7 percent of the dollar amount included for earmarks in the bill. According to the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007, signed into law on September 14, 2007 by President George W. Bush, members of Congress are required to add their name to each earmark. However, they continue to violate this law by adding anonymous earmarks to fund projects – often big-ticket items – at the expense of taxpayers.

# $2,500,000,000 added anonymously for ten additional C-17 aircraft. In a floor statement posted on his website, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) voiced his opposition to the C-17 funding: “[w]hat we would do in this bill is effectively fund the purchase of new aircraft that we neither need nor can afford with critical sustainment money. That would have a significant impact on our ability to provide the day-to-day operational funding that our servicemen and women and their families deserve.”

# $465,000,000 added anonymously for the F136 alternate engine program. According to a November 10, 2009 Reuters article, deliveries of the F136 alternate engine will be delayed by one year. Built by General Electric and Rolls-Royce, the alternate engine program has had two major setbacks in as many months. In October, F136 testing was halted when a nut came loose, damaging turbine blades in the engine. Top military officials, former President Bush, President Obama, the Office of Management and Budget, and independent analysts all agree that the alternate engine should be eliminated. The project is expensive, unnecessary, and only survives because of pork-barrel politics.

# $250,000,000 added anonymously for advance procurement of components for the two DDG-51 destroyers planned in fiscal year 2011. According to a September 29, 2009 Associated Press article, the DDG-51 destroyer is “to be built in Pascagoula, Miss., home to Republican Sen. Thad Cochran....” Senate Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), Sens. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), John Kerry (D-Mass.), and Paul Kirk (D-Mass.), and Rep. Travis Childers (D-Miss.) added $8,100,000 for a hybrid drive system for the DDG-51 destroyer.

ABC News also reported the waste in the spending bill, including the C-17’s the Department of Defense doesn’t even want. Later Charles Gibson asked President Obama if he’ll sign the bill even though it contains so much pork. Obama said something like “Well, I know there’s a lot of pork in there, but I have no choice but to sign the bill.” Well, he could have sent a message to Congress to send him a bill that doesn’t include a any pork. Maybe point out Pelosi’s recent promise to address the deficit. She could start by cutting out the lard. He could have vetoed the omnibus bill that increased spending. But the truth is, he has no problem with wasteful spending. He likes it. Look at all the previous spending, budget, bailouts and stimulus's he signed earlier in the year. Oh wait, he "inherited" all this...that's right

Why Capitalism Is The Real Driver Of Real Substained Growth

There’s an old saying: “Everyone’s a capitalist on the way up and a socialist on the way down.” People want it all—to reap the benefits of free markets, but be protected against any downside. Capitalism won’t abide. And that’s a good thing. It’s a system of inherent checks and balances, which can be swift and brutal during the pruning process. In rough times, we seem willing to sacrifice free markets’ benefits for perceived security from this process. Still, if free markets were restricted, what would happen to those checks? Subprime problems (or Bernie Madoff’s) were not revealed by regulators, but by markets. Note, politicians are human, too.

Capitalism and free markets are not ever-stable. They work precisely because they compel folks to take risks and seek to create excess value out of existing capital, in whatever form that might be. They’re examples of constant change and innovation. Change isn’t always comfortable—and much of it will fail—but when it moves society in a more efficient direction, society certainly becomes more profitable.

During crises, the balance always tilts toward government and away from capitalism. This doesn’t mean capitalism is done. But such things are always said in times like these. Government “solutions” can only carry the economy so far—it’s up to capitalism to drive real, sustained growth. That is, it’s up to the people who make an economy, not its turgid overseers.

Roy E. Disney, Nephew Of Walt Disney Passes Away

I've always been a fan of Disney and I thought that this was important to put up on here. If I remember correctly, he was the last family member to work or be on the board for the company.

My condolences to the Disney family

50 Things To Do In A Church:

1 - Pull aside an unruly child in a preschool Sunday School class and say: "If you're bad in here, you'll go to Hell."

5 - Replace the pianist's sheet music with "Stairway to Heaven".
6 - Going through all the hymnals, mark song 666.

21 - Pierce the body of a tiny animal with stainless-steel wire. Wear it in your ear as jewelry. If you are male, wear two. Change sets for the evening service.

Joke I Found

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly Gates.

'In honor of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'You must each possess Something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He Flicked it on. 'It represents a candle', he said.

'You may pass through the pearly gates' Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He Shook them and said, 'They're bells.'

Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and Finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just What do those symbolize?'

The man replied, 'These are Carols.'

And So The Christmas Season Begins......

A Rant By Me About A Sports Article I Read

Article here: http://sports.yahoo.com/top/blog/roy_s_johnson/post/Some-Sioux-want-to-save-their-mascot-but-Native;_ylt=AtMULUf_kScJUqgNKj88F1ZDubYF?urn=top,207956

I understand we are living in an era where everyone wants their own agenda pushed, wants people to apologize or I'm going to sue for every little thing, the media dictates who should be fired as a coach and not the school, big brother is watching etc etc etc, but making sports teams change their names because they are deemed "insensitive"?

Personally and from what I have read online, most Native Americans don't care about the nicknames. It's only a small group like 6 who keep suing teams like the Washington Redskins to change their name. The Sioux of North Dakota have said they are proud that the university uses their nickname. Florida State Seminoles don't seem to care nor do Natives when it comes to the Cleveland Indians or Atlanta Braves and all the tomahawk chants.

You don't hear people or myself getting all but hurt about the Boston Celtics nickname. Why you ask? I'm proud of my part Irish heritage but if you want to get technical it is pronounced "Keltic" or "Celt" but I'm not leading a band of attention starved and money hungry people to tell the team or new organizations to pronounce it correctly or change the name. Because of people like this, we already got Columbus Day removed from the books what more do you want?? (See my post on that subject here: http://welcometotrigger.blogspot.com/2009/04/no-columbus-day-at-brown-university.html )

Give me a break people....

Tiger Woods



Why is this such a big deal? Possibly thousands of people cheat everyday in this country. This is another example of celebrities being cast as role models and putting people on pedestals.
But I do wonder....why isn't or wasn't the wife charged or investigated on this as well?? Supposedly Tiger had scratches to his face that were not consistent with a car crash at 15 mph but were with a domestic violence case and then the rear windows were blown out with a golf club and the story to that was it was done to pull Tiger from the car because he was injured. To me, it sounds like she found out he was cheating, hit him and them chased him down the street with a golf club ready to do more damage to him but instead got his vehicle. I think the wife should be charged with aggravated assault property damage. The neighbors who witnessed this and called 911 obviously saw this. Why else would they hire a lawyer?
Again, double standard and must be nice to be rich. Get 4 points on your record and only pay a citation.
As one website put it: Ya, this about sums it up. You see that chick on the left? She’s about to become something like a half a billionaire by the end of 2010. Not bad for lying on your back for a few years.
