Barrytown people got to be from another world.

I am represented in the United States Senate by an idiot

  • Contributed by:

Claire McCaskell, Idiot (Democrat, but that should go without saying) from Missouri: "The Senate passed a budget, in fact we did better . . . "

Oh, Holy Jesus and Mary Mother of God (I'm not a Catholic, but I married one) . . .



Note to Claire: Talking fast is not necessarily an indicator of sagacity . . . in the common tongue, spouting nonsense at a rapid clip is known as "babble."

Babbling Claire. Babble, Claire, Babble.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. ~ John Stuart Mill

A quick reminder

"Too big to fail" is just a polite way of saying "too big to succeed, but we're going to keep propping it up, throwing good money after bad anyway, because we don't have the wit or imagination to conceive of any alternative."

(Yes, we're still around. Another travel journal will be forthcoming.)

Are you SURE Obama isn't a Marxist?

For that matter, are you sure YOU aren't a Marxist?

Watch these two (admittedly rather dry) YouTube videos, then go into your bathroom, look at yourself, and answer the question.






The totalitarian "progressives" are trying to make the words "socialist" and "Marxist" as taboo as the word "nigger." There is a reason that they are doing this (and, for the record, I think that the "n" word probably should be taboo in almost every context (except, perhaps, comparative ones such as this). The "s" word and the "M" word most definitely should not.)

Remember when "Enemies Lists" were BAD things?

Obama Administration Ministry of Truth agency "Media Matters for America" did indeed, it would seem, coordinate with the Obama White House and create an Enemies List of (perceived) conservative media and political figures to target with "opposition research".

Not that there's anything wrong with that, because "MMfA" are "progressives," you see. And they care more about pretty much everything important than you do.

Meta: yes, we're still around. Been doing lots of other things . . . going to basketball games, trying to catch up on reading, etc., etc. There should be a travel journal or two forthcoming in the near future. We hope.

On the Republican Party

Either way, win or lose in 2012, the rank and file voters, the everyday people who get up and go to work every day, the Main Street, the Maple Street, and the Mulberry Lane people who vote for Republicans, need to cut their ties to the Grand Old Party.

It's the 21st Century. Time for something new.

2011: The Year In Review

2011: The Year The Wheels Fell Off, an essay in which, appallingly, most of the cited events actually did occur:
. . .
FEBRUARY: Chicago chose as its new mayor former White House chief of staff Rahm Effing Emanuel, who immediately ordered a voter registration drive in the city's cemeteries. Shortly after that, the "Arab spring training season" began in Egypt. After Secretary of State Hillary said that the Mubarak regime was stable, the Cairo Clubbers traded their top grenade thrower to the Port Said Molotovs for two machine-gunners and a future draft pick.
. . .
SEPTEMBER: Republican debates became so boring that television networks considered hiring fake moderators such as Donald Trump. The problem can best be solved, without Trump, by ensuring that future debates are moderated, seriatim, by John Madden, the Kardashian sisters, and Liam Neeson accompanied by the rest of the stars of the "A-Team" movie appearing in character. I pity the fools…

DECEMBER: . . . Ratings agencies Standard and Poor's, Moody's and Fitch issued a joint statement in reaction to the Eurozone deal which said only, "Bwahahahahahahahaha." Which some people mistook for a reaction to Joe Biden's statement that the Taliban wasn't our enemy, "per se."

So what will 2012 bring? . . .
