Now what is next? "Bigger, Longer, thicker and more intense!" and I don't mean South Park!

So I am watching late night satellite TV. I think it was AMC and the movie was something I liked though I can't remember what it was. It might have been a Clint Eastwood Western or something when all of a sudden up pops this ad. Now about 2 weeks ago, I was dozing on the couch one late night with the TV on, and this ad came on and I wasn't sure what I saw, I thought maybe I was hearing things, I didn't catch but the last part of the video, so I wasn't sure what it was. With all the male enhancement ads out there, I thought maybe it was one of that genre. But last night I was wide awake and this pops up on TV and I sat there just staring at the TV. I couldn't believe my eyes. Who is the advertising wizard that came up with this stuff?

Viagra, Cialis, Extenze, Enzyte, and the "Progene" Chick! wow. And now "Clandestine personal vibrators"! sounds like a Special Ops weapon to me!

Now I am no prude, certainly not. I am old enough to know about sex and such, I do have 5 kids after all and I love women, and well, sex just as much as anyone else, even at my "advanced age". But do we really need such ads on TV late at night? It's bad enough that we are bombarded by the male enhancement ads, the worst being the "Viva Viagra" spots using the old Elvis tune. Or the Enzyte commercials with "Smilin' Bob" that are actually kind of funny even though the man who runs the business has been convicted of fraud but really, how many of these do we need on TV? Watch this spot and tell me what you think your kids are thinking when they have outfoxed you and stayed up late watching something on Cable or Satellite TV?

The Devinyls "I touch myself" fits nicely, doesn't it? But pardon me for a moment, the Angela Lansbury look-alike in the background adds somewhat of a creepy touch, pardon the pun, or not, doesn't she? Maybe she's the buzzkill so that the censors didn't nix the whole idea altogether. My apologies to her.

Now I suppose, the "in" thing for Christmas for your guy and girl friends is to buy them either male enhancement pills or get your girlfriend or gal friends the Trojan Vibrating Touch! Yep, it you can't get them a prescription for Viagra, at least you can get those men folk something that will supposedly make them feel bigger, longer and with enhanced performance! Now you too can give your lady friend a Trojan Vibrating Touch so she can take it to school, or work or to the movies when she goes so that anytime the need arises and passion flares, well, there ya go!

If I am not mistaken, I have also seen on satellite/cable TV, an ad for a penis suction pump. Now there's a real gift for your guy friends! I can hear the conversation now:

Steve: "Hey Bob"

Me: "Hey Steve"

Steve: "Since it's Christmas and I know you don't have time to date, I got you a couple of gifts!"

Me: "Really? that's nice"

Steve: "Yeah, I got you a penile suction pump and some male enhancement pills, that should fix you right up!"

Me: "Thanks, but I am not seeing anybody, why would I need them anyway?"

Steve: "Well, they're guaranteed to make you bigger, harder and give you better performance"

Me: "Gee thanks Steve, maybe I can use the male enhancement pills to get me a bigger paycheck and use the pump to clear that stopped up drain and get that crown out I lost down there, that's one stubborn sucker!"

Steve: "You're welcome Bob, you never know, you might run into that "Progene" chick, I hear she's pretty hot!"

And do you feel the need to do some exercise" at work? Try the "Pos-T-Vac"! Just excuse yourself from that all important business meeting and Wham! off to the men's room or locker room in the building and start "hoovering" that sucker. That way when you come back in, all the women in the office will look at you and each other and say "hmmm, do you notice something different about Tom? Did he get his hair cut? or is he wearing a new suit?
NO! he got himself one of those human milking machines and man, does it show! wonder what he's doing for lunch!" Jeez. And who is he thinking about? probably the "Progene" chick. Now, if I had a girlfriend that looked like the "Progene" chick, why would I need anything? I am not sure, but somehow taking a look at her, I don't think she is going to want to deal with some girly man who has to take a pill to get excited. "Hold on one minute baby while I take my extenze pill and finish using my Pos-T-Vac, and then I'll be ready". But that is my opinion. Personally? I do think she's cute anyway.

Is it me? or is anyone out there just getting fed up with the constant bombardment of breast enhancers, male or "penis" enhancers, extremely clandestine female vibrating finger toys and male milking machines? For the love of God, are men so feminized and brainwashed by the media and marketing companies that they are worried about the size of their Johnsons? are women so insecure anymore that their breasts are smaller in comparison to "Tiffany" or "Brittany" whose breast look like the twin "Graf Zeppelin" and "Hindenburg" docked in Lakehurst, New Jersey fighting under a tarp? It's said when the archeologist's dig up Snottsdale in a 1000 years, all they'll find is breast implants and dental veneers.

Ya know, people need to quit buying into this crap. If a man has a legitimate need for erectile dysfunction, fine. And most of the herbal supplements for male enhancements are bogus anyway, if anyone pays attention and does a little research. I mean the head of Enzyte is in big trouble and I haven't seen "smilin' Bob" on lately and I have to watch NBC Nightly News when I am switching with a one minute "Viva Viagra" spot right in the middle of the break. And the use of that song for that particular product makes me want to throw up anyway. And I don't know about y'all, but when I was jammin' with the band, we never sat around singin' and playin' about how after we got through we were going home and take a pill that would make our Johnson's hard enough to fly a flag from and make our military dad's proud.

And the constant stream of "male enhancements", "breast enlargers" and now "personal Vibrating touches" on top of "Penile suction machines" is just getting out of hand, no pun intended, well maybe.

Perhaps it's the sign of the times. I don't see anything wrong with sex at all, but there is a time and place for everything. And there is also a time and place for advertising everything. There is a "Shop Erotica" channel or infomercial on satellite and I would bet it's on cable too. The sad thing is, the FCC doesn't regulate much other than OTA (Over -The-Air for you civilians) so unless it's really really over the top, they won't do anything until gazillions of people complain. Alas, it's no wonder we are a sex-obsessed society with the geniuses of Park Avenue, if they can sell Madonna, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell, they can sell anything.

All I am waiting for now is Trojan to start using my re-cut version (above) of the old "Divinyls" song, "I touch myself" which would probably go good for that particular product. Listen to it again, can't let a good song and theme go to waste now can we?

Think I'll buy a few for some friends for next Christmas...and while I am at it, think I'll send the "Progene" Chick one of those Trojan Vibrating touches and maybe a penis pump enlarger or a Pos-T-Vac in case she lost an earring in her bathroom sink.

America under Siege

Yep, that' right, America under siege. With the Porkulus Package as Rush calls it, the commucrats in the Politburo lead by Comrade Obam-uh are trying to undermine everything that made America the great country it is. Now with funding for infrastructure, giving "tax credits" to people who don't pay taxes to begin with and the move toward nationalized healthcare, we are seeing the commucrats trying to turn America into France, or Germany.

What people don't realize is, for example, the other day the story was reported that Starbucks ended up getting rid of their new jet they had purchased a few years ago and had taken delivery of. Of course, Starbucks wasn't a reciepient of any bailout from the US government, but oh my God, to hear those in the politburo screaming about how that was hurting employees, they could have kept employees and stores open, they could have kept jobs. Here's the thing. I don't agree with Starbucks buying the jet, but at the time, they were making a profit. They were helping to employ the people making the jet, (it might be a jet made in France, but still, it was employing people). Now, a jet needs a ground crew and maintanence people to keep it up to snuff, so they have to employ local people to do that. You don't just hop into a jet and fly to Starbucks or Circle K or 7-11 to get the morning paper like you would with your car. They have to make sure that the jet is in top condition each time it rotates.

My point is, if a company wants to make a boneheaded move, let it fail. It's America after all. It's capitalism and it's not the government's call to decide what a private company can do. I don't care what company it is, except if it involves public transportation such as the airlines or trains or buses. Companies should be allowed to fail without government interference if they do the wrong things and shouldn't expect the government to help them out. That goes for the auto industry, and they airline industry. The government should only be involved in the airline industry to the extent that they are protecting the public by making sure the airlines keep and fly reliable and safe aircraft. Not whether or not the owners are jetting around on their own aircraft to jaunts around the world. If GM or Chrysler or Ford can't make a decent American car because they pay so much in healthcare and pension costs, let them either restructure the way they do business, cut the unions down to size or go out of business. It is not the government's business to interfere in private business. Because when you start getting bailouts from the government to save your asses, you can damn well expect the government to start telling you how to do business and that amounts to socialism if in fact, not fascism. There is no guarantee in the US constitution that if you are a bad business, it's the government's job to save you. After all, if the US government was a a business itself, it would have gone out of business a long time ago. Thus lies the danger in Comrade Obam-uh and the Politburo's thinking. Encroachment on the one shining attribute of American exceptionalism. The willingness to risk and either succeed or fail on your own merits.

While I was in Colorado visiting my kids, I was also playing computer tech to fix my youngest daughters computer so that she and her band could record a demo cd. I also was instructing them on how to do this, instilling recording discipline and teaching Kayleigh how to use the program and mic the drums, the guitars, etc. I also went to a gig on the 17th that they played at a place called the Atlas. I recorded it on my little mino camcorder, and while the audio mix is not exactly board mix, the audio isn't that bad. The video also turned out better than I hoped. So I am loading up a song here called "my chemical bromance" which the Spitfire as I call her, told me was a play on the band, my chemical romance. She has complete command of the stage, and while a young band, if they stick at it, they have potential. I noticed the crowd that was there all gravitated toward the front of the stage after Sinclair started playing which is a good indication of how they grabbed their attention. Needless to say, I was extremely proud of her and proud of them as well.

Arizona Bound

Well, it was a fun week spending time with the kids and grandkids here in Colorado. The weather was unseasonbly warm, no, it wasn't due to climate change. I remember growing up here many winters where we wondered where the snow was. It was always snowing in the mountains, but the front range sometimes got lucky and didn't get much at all.It still got down into the low 20's and teens at night and the last 2 nights we got a dusting of snow, though nothing big. Right at 9am as I am typing it's 19 degrees outside. I still must have Colorado skin as when I step outside for a smoke, it's cold, but it doesn't bother me. They say the longer you live in Arizona the thinner your blood gets, but for me, guess not. I can still handle Colorado winters. When I arrive back in Phoenix it will be about 70 degrees, that's a change!

I remember those cold gray winter skies that Colorado is known for and haven't see in quite a while. And I didn't have the chance to go to the Springs or Denver.

I will be coming back in May for Kayleigh's High School Graduation and Colorado spring's and summer's are the best kept secret in the west. I do miss the Colorado summers. But it's back to Phoenix and back to work as we have the superbowl coming up and the AZ Cardinals are playing, which shocked everybody and we have the Digital Transition coming up, provided of course that the bozos in DC don't decide to move it back. As a friend of mine said the other day "Hell must have frozen over, since the Cardinals are in the Super bowl and we have a black man in the white house." I added, "and a socialist one at that". See you on the other side.

So this is how we play the game

So we all received this email from corporate and management at the station: First from Craig Dubrow;

Today Gannett is implementing a furlough program across all U.S. divisions and at corporate headquarters. This means that most of our U.S. employees - including myself and all other top executives - will be furloughed for the equivalent of one week in the first quarter. This furlough will be unpaid. Unions also will be asked to participate.

We are doing this to preserve our operations and continue to deliver for our customers while confronting the issues raised by some of the most difficult economic conditions we have ever experienced.

After much consideration, we decided a furlough program would be the fairest and least intrusive way to meet these fiscal challenges in the first quarter, which is traditionally the lightest time of the year. We sincerely hope this minimizes the need for any layoffs going forward.

As the day goes on, you will be receiving information from your division presidents explaining the program, including some FAQs to help answer any of your questions and address your concerns about pay and benefits.

We have made some very difficult decisions this past year, all with the goal of keeping Gannett strong and preparing for the future. I understand I have asked a great deal of you, and I regret adding to your burden with this program.

But my sincere hope is that this step removes the need to do anything more drastic, and that business conditions improve. As always, I thank you for your patience and loyalty to Gannett.

So we are supposed to lose a week of pay with a week off. I wonder how this going to affect most employees with kids and mortgages? simple, badly.

Meanwhile this comes out of the Nashville Scene:

Gannett Exec Flies to Tucson to Shutter Paper,

Play in Big Bucks Celebrity Golf Tourney

Last Friday Bob Dickey, Gannett's newspaper division chief flew to Tucson, Ariz. to announce the likely closing of the Tucson Citizen, the state's oldest continuously published daily.

"We all will be sharing the financial hardship," Dickey told Gannett employees earlier in the week, after Gannett--parent company of the Tennessean--announced mandatory unpaid vacations for employees.

Dickey, it turns out, will be sharing the hardship by entering Bob Hope's Chrysler Classic golf tournament, with an entry fee as high as $25,000 for amateurs. He's really feelin' the worker's pain!

As one poster on the excellent Gannett Blog put it:

"I hope this is not coming out of the Gannett expense account. Not after I have had employees in my office crying about how they are going to lose $500 of their weekly wages because of the furlough and they will not be able to afford their rent and utility bills."

Maybe I will take off the week that we are supposed to go through the digital transition, say feb 15-22 and let management run the station whilst i enjoy a week off without pay.

Under Comrade Obam-uh, a new direction

This has 2 parts to it, if you look at the picture it appears almost as an optical illusion. Second, when you notice it, you will see it drives sideways, kinda like First Party Secretary Comrade Obam-uh is going to do to this country with his socialist policies if they get through. Thanks to Shari for sending me this, LOL.

From Dick Morris...Here comes Socialism

This is the latest from Dick Morris that I receive as a newsletter. I think it's interestin now that Comrade Obam-uh has become first party secretary. I don't think most Americans realize what is about to transpire.


Published on on January 20, 2009

2009-2010 will rank with 1913-14, 1933-36, 1964-65 and 1981-82 as years that will permanently change our government, politics and lives. Just as the stars were aligned for Wilson, Roosevelt, Johnson and Reagan, they are aligned for Obama. Simply put, we enter his administration as free-enterprise, market-dominated, laissez-faire America. We will shortly become like Germany, France, the United Kingdom, or Sweden — a socialist democracy in which the government dominates the economy, determines private-sector priorities and offers a vastly expanded range of services to many more people at much higher taxes.

Obama will accomplish his agenda of “reform” under the rubric of “recovery.” Using the electoral mandate bestowed on a Democratic Congress by restless voters and the economic power given his administration by terrified Americans, he will change our country fundamentally in the name of lifting the depression. His stimulus packages won’t do much to shorten the downturn — although they will make it less painful — but they will do a great deal to change our nation.

In implementing his agenda, Barack Obama will emulate the example of Franklin D. Roosevelt. (Not the liberal mythology of the New Deal, but the actuality of what it accomplished.) When FDR took office, he was enormously successful in averting a total collapse of the banking system and the economy. But his New Deal measures only succeeded in lowering the unemployment rate from 23 percent in 1933, when he took office, to 13 percent in the summer of 1937. It never went lower. And his policies of over-regulation generated such business uncertainty that they triggered a second-term recession. Unemployment in 1938 rose to 17 percent and, in 1940, on the verge of the war-driven recovery, stood at 15 percent. (These data and the real story of Hoover’s and Roosevelt’s missteps, uncolored by ideology, are available in The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes, copyright 2007.)

But in the name of a largely unsuccessful effort to end the Depression, Roosevelt passed crucial and permanent reforms that have dominated our lives ever since, including Social Security, the creation of the Securities and Exchange Commission, unionization under the Wagner Act, the federal minimum wage and a host of other fundamental changes.

Obama’s record will be similar, although less wise and more destructive. He will begin by passing every program for which liberals have lusted for decades, from alternative-energy sources to school renovations, infrastructure repairs and technology enhancements. These are all good programs, but they normally would be stretched out for years. But freed of any constraint on the deficit — indeed, empowered by a mandate to raise it as high as possible — Obama will do them all rather quickly.

But it is not his spending that will transform our political system, it is his tax and welfare policies. In the name of short-term stimulus, he will give every American family (who makes less than $200,000) a welfare check of $1,000 euphemistically called a refundable tax credit. And he will so sharply cut taxes on the middle class and the poor that the number of Americans who pay no federal income tax will rise from the current one-third of all households to more than half. In the process, he will create a permanent electoral majority that does not pay taxes, but counts on ever-expanding welfare checks from the government. The dependency on the dole, formerly limited in pre-Clinton days to 14 million women and children on Aid to Families with Dependent Children, will now grow to a clear majority of the American population.

Will he raise taxes? Why should he? With a congressional mandate to run the deficit up as high as need be, there is no reason to raise taxes now and risk aggravating the depression. Instead, Obama will follow the opposite of the Reagan strategy. Reagan cut taxes and increased the deficit so that liberals could not increase spending. Obama will raise spending and increase the deficit so that conservatives cannot cut taxes. And, when the economy is restored, he will raise taxes with impunity, since the only people who will have to pay them would be rich Republicans.

In the name of stabilizing the banking system, Obama will nationalize it. Using Troubled Asset Relief Program funds to write generous checks to needy financial institutions, his administration will demand preferred stock in exchange. Preferred stock gets dividends before common stockholders do. With the massive debt these companies will owe to the government, they will only be able to afford dividends for preferred stockholders — the government, not private investors. So who will buy common stock? And the government will demand that its bills be paid before any profits that might materialize are reinvested in the financial institution, so how will the value of the stocks ever grow? Devoid of private investors, these institutions will fall ever more under government control.

Obama will begin the process by limiting executive compensation. Then he will urge restructuring and lowering of home mortgages in danger of default (as the feds have already done with Citibank).

Then will come guidance on the loans to make and government instructions on the types of enterprises to favor. God grant that some Blagojevich type is not in charge of the program, using his power to line his pockets. The United States will find itself with an economic system comparable to that of Japan, where the all-powerful bureaucracy at MITI (Ministry of International Trade and Industry) manages the economy, often making mistakes like giving mainframe computers priority over the development of laptops.

But it is the healthcare system that will experience the most dramatic and traumatic of changes. The current debate between erecting a Medicare-like governmental single payer or channeling coverage through private insurance misses the essential point. Without a lot more doctors, nurses, clinics, equipment and hospital beds, health resources will be strained to the breaking point. The people and equipment that now serve 250 million Americans and largely neglect all but the emergency needs of the other 50 million will now have to serve everyone. And, as government imposes ever more Draconian price controls and income limits on doctors, the supply of practitioners and equipment will decline as the demand escalates. Price increases will be out of the question, so the government will impose healthcare rationing, denying the older and sicker among us the care they need and even barring them from paying for it themselves. (Rationing based on income and price will be seen as immoral.)

And Obama will move to change permanently the partisan balance in America. He will move quickly to legalize all those who have been in America for five years, albeit illegally, and to smooth their paths to citizenship and voting. He will weaken border controls in an attempt to hike the Latino vote as high as he can in order to make red states like Texas into blue states like California. By the time he is finished, Latinos and African-Americans will cast a combined 30 percent of the vote. If they go by top-heavy margins for the Democrats, as they did in 2008, it will assure Democratic domination (until they move up the economic ladder and become good Republicans).

And he will enact the check-off card system for determining labor union representation, repealing the secret ballot in union elections. The result will be to raise the proportion of the labor force in unions up to the high teens from the current level of about 12 percent.

Finally, he will use the expansive powers of the Federal Communications Commission to impose “local” control and ownership of radio stations and to impose the “fairness doctrine” on talk radio. The effect will be to drive talk radio to the Internet, fundamentally change its economics, and retard its growth for years hence.

But none of these changes will cure the depression. It will end when the private sector works through the high debt levels that triggered the collapse in the first place. And, then, the large stimulus package deficits will likely lead to rapid inflation, probably necessitating a second recession to cure it.

So Obama’s name will be mud by 2012 and probably by 2010 as well. And the Republican Party will make big gains and regain much of its lost power.

But it will be too late to reverse the socialism of much of the economy, the demographic change in the electorate, the rationing of healthcare by the government, the surge of unionization and the crippling of talk radio.

Even Canada won't let Comrade Obam-uh's terrorist buddy in

So on the day that Comrade Obam-uh receives the Order of Lenin, it's revealed that even Canada, that bastion of liberalism, won't let him talk in Canada. The funny thing is, St Mary's College in California wants him to speak. I think it would be a great idea to put pressure on the college to dissuade Ayers to be able to speak. This "man" and I use the word loosely, should be in jail for the murders he has committed among other things. This is really unbelievable and indicative of the lunacy that will transpire now that Comrade Obam-uh has received the Order of Lenin and become first party secretary of the United Socialist States of America.

Even Liberal Canada turns Away Terrorist Ayers
Yet a California College Embraces Him
Help Stop Bill Ayers from Speaking at St. Mary’s College

Just when our nation is in the middle of a war against terrorism, why would a liberal arts California college invite Bill Ayers, leader of the notorious 1960s group Weather Underground, to speak?

It is hard to imagine why they would at this time to give a platform for this character who proudly boasts of his terrorist bombings of the United States in the 1970’s. We need your financial help to get the word out to as many people as possible so we can get the college to withdraw this invitation before it is too late:


Even the liberal government in Canada refused to let Bill Ayers into their county this week where he was scheduled to speak at the University of Toronto, according to The Star. Remember, it was Canada that took in all of our draft dodgers during the Viet Nam War. They were not picky about who to let in.

But even they were smart enough to say enough is enough with Bill Ayers, stopping Ayers at the airport and putting him back on the airplane to the United States. It’s about time somebody said “NO!” to Ayers, who takes credit for multiple acts of terrorism .

Being a friend and neighbor of Barack Obama, Ayers probably thought the sordid legacy of his past was behind him, but some of us will still willing to stand for what’s right, and against this domestic terrorist! What is most shocking is that colleges such as St. Mary’s in Moraga, Calif., would even INVITE a man such as Ayers to speak in the first place. Instead, they should have a speaker who would explain the threat our country faces from terrorists who do the same thing Ayers did.

"I don't know why I was turned back," Ayers said in an interview Monday morning with "I got off the plane like everyone else and I was asked to come over to the other side. The border guards reviewed some stuff and said I wasn't going to be allowed into Canada. To me it seems quite bureaucratic and not at all interesting ... If it were me I would have let me in. I couldn't possibly be a threat to Canada."

How about this for a reason: the Weather Underground set off multiple bombs in the 1960s and ‘70s, including explosives that hit the Pentagon, the Capitol, the U.S. State Department, a New York City police headquarters, and government prison officers in San Francisco and Sacramento, among others. While planning to bomb and kill soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey, three of Ayers’ group were killed by their own bombs that malfunctioned.


“In what sane world would anybody allow Bill Ayers around students?” said MAF chairman Melanie Morgan. “Ayers is an unrepentant thug who terrorized innocent people, just like the radical jihadists who are at war with America today.”

An Historic but sad day in America...

As I sit here in my daughter's house in Greeley, Colorado, trying not to watch the circle jerk going on DC, I am struck by a few points. Since Greeley is well out of the footpath of Denver TV stations OTA and I am awaiting the directv guy to come and hook up directv for my daughter and her family since they have no real TV to watch, I have to resort to watching the Translator from KDVR Fox 31 out of Denver which is located in Fort Collins, to the west.

I glance now and then at the screen and see all the illumanaires and gas bags that are showing up, and that's the just the commucrats. I have seen President Bush, his wife, his father and mother a few other republicans, but for the most part I am trying to ignore it all.

It is a historic day in that in America we have now elected the first black president in our history. One good thing about Comrade B. Hussein Obama, is that he has single-handedly wiped out an industry in America by his election. No more should the race baiters like Jackson, Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright have any credibility when they claim rascism is still alive in America and that the black man has no chance of oppotunity. No more should people like P "Dickhead" Diddy Comes and other thug rappers that want to lay all their problems on white people be allowed to stand. Does that mean rascism is dead in America? no but it means that those losers have had their weapon of choice taken away from them. Rascism has existed since the beginning of man and always will, but enough with Rascist America already. I think our society has long moved past that part of our history and it will be interesting to see the relics that remain that want to keep rascism alive as an industry.

I am happy we have elected a black man, so these people will shut up or at least I hope they will. The problem is, he is the wrong kind of black man. If he was a stanch conservative that believed in freedom, liberty, the rule of law, self-reliability and the nations's right to defend itself against any threat, foreign or domestic, yeah, right on. What we have here is the child of the corrupt chicago political machine, a student of Saul Alinksy, friends with un-repentant terrorists and a rascist pastor that he never in the 20 years of attending his church never heard any inflamatory remarks. He also has ties with a convicted land dealer whose real role is to be discovered and finally, we have a corrupt governor that you know Comrade Obama has had to have talked with regularly.

My daughter just having switched the TV over to a "my little pony" movie for the children has thankfully taken that ridiculous spectacle going on DC off the TV. I was half expecting Comrade Obama to walk across the mall pool, or turn it into wine, or be nailed to a cross so that special effects people could roll out a tomb and out would come the messiah all to the joy and amazement of the crowd. Thank god, I won't have to see that. I will never refer to him as President as I don't vote for socialist and I think we are in for some rough going. Any mistake or blunder he makes, he certainly will not get the criticism or scrutiny that Bush got during his presidency. No, they will excuse him as being new to the job, learning or spinning it some way to make it someone else's fault other than him.

As far as that goes, while i wish him no physical harm, I want him to fail. I want to see the economy tank even worse, I want to see attempts at more restrictive freedoms in the name of "good", and god forbid, something tells me that we are going to get hit by another terrorist attack as he will be perceived as weak as well as his sympathies toward the arab world.

And in closing, all I can say is, "Fuck him", Fuck him and the horse he rode in on.

All in the family? the meaning of cronyism & nepotism

It's always evident when the commucrats get back into power. It's like the dead bird the cat dragged in to show you or the animal parts your dog finds in a field somewhere and drags back to your yard.

We are 2 days away from Comrade Obama receiving the Order of Lenin, the highest award a socialist can get. But before he's even received the award, his administration has been beset by scandal and intrigue. Does anyone remember anything like this happening when Dubya was going to be inagurated? Yet, Rahm is under fire from the Blago fiasco, Richardson had to withdraw his nomination and a few other incidents. And now we come to "slow Joe" Biden, Gaffe-machine extrodinaire. His son Beau is serving as attorney general in Delaware, while also serving duty in Iraq, which he is to be thanked and respected for.

Meanwhile Slow Joe's aide, Ted Kaufman is set to be sworn in as Slow Joe's replacement for his senate seat. I am sorry, but this guy, as is mentioned, is a placeholder for Beau Biden. Many times in politics in America, and especially on the democratic side of the aisle, it's like a bunch of inbreds. Papa had a seat, then it's handed off to son. Look what happened to the Kennedy's. Jack runs to become President, Bobby runs for a senate seat in New York and Teddy decides to run for congress from Taxachusetts. At this point, I am sure that Kaufman is to be the resident marionette taking orders from both Biden's until Beau can actually "run" for the seat in which case, he will handily beat out any newcomers, provided of course some dark horse doesn't come out and steal the silver spoon out of his mouth

Kaufman ready to take Biden's Senate seat

DOVER, Del. (AP) — The man picked to fill Joe Biden's U.S. Senate seat doesn't want his new colleagues to write him off as an irrelevant placeholder, even though he only plans to be in office for two years.

"I would not have taken this thing at this point in my life if I didn't think there were things down there that I could accomplish," said 69-year-old Ted Kaufman, a Democrat who worked for years behind the scenes on Biden's staff.

Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner tapped Kaufman to fill the seat that Vice President-elect Biden relinquished Thursday. He'll be sworn into office at 11 a.m. Friday, but has made it clear that he does not plan to serve in the Senate beyond 2010, when many political observers expect Biden's eldest son, Delaware attorney general Beau Biden, to run for his dad's old seat.

Kaufman is no stranger to the Senate, having served on Biden's staff from 1973 to 1994, including 19 years as chief of staff. But after years of working in relative anonymity, he is now stepping into the public arena.

Kaufman says if his colleagues do try to dismiss his views, he has an ace up his sleeve — a close personal relationship with the new vice president.

"That's a lot better than a poke in the eye with a stick," joked Kaufman, who has requested assignments to the judiciary and foreign relations committee, both of which were chaired by his former boss.

As Biden's aide, Kaufman spent significant time on foreign relations and budget issues. He also was a senior adviser in his presidential and Senate campaigns.

His goals as a freshman senator include continuing Biden's effort to restore federal funding to help cities hire more police, providing financial aid for college students, getting U.S. troops out of Iraq, and working on economic recovery efforts.

"It's hard to discriminate between their views," said Christopher Schroeder, a professor of law and public policy at Duke University who has worked with Kaufman both as an academic colleague and as chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I think his stance on issues is going to be very similar to Senator Biden's."

Kaufman has known Biden since the early 1970s. When Biden ran for U.S. Senate in 1972, Biden's sister and campaign manager, Valerie, asked help from Kaufman, who has a mechanical engineering degree from Duke and a master's in business administration from the Wharton School.

After his upset victory over Republican incumbent Caleb Boggs, Biden asked Kaufman to help with the transition to the Senate. Kaufman took a one-year leave of absence from DuPont, then wound up staying with Biden for two decades.

"He comes to the job far better prepared than almost anybody I can imagine. ... Unlike the rest of us, he won't need a lot of on-the-job training," said Sen. Tom Carper, who is now Delaware's senior senator.

Kaufman said he and Biden have complemented each other well through the years. Kaufman calls himself and pragmatist, but that Biden taught him to appreciate intuition or what he calls the "human factor."

Biden, through his aides, declined repeated requests for an interview but said in a written response that Kaufman understands that service to Delaware comes first, and that getting things done requires crossing partisan and ideological lines.

"There is no one who knows more about the Senate, how it works and how to get things done than Ted Kaufman," Biden said. "I can say with absolute confidence that Delaware is in very good hands."

"Ted is a unique combination of integrity, compassion and grit," Biden added.

But unlike Biden — who traveled back home to Wilmington almost every night — Kaufman plans to have a residence in Washington. But that doesn't mean he will be a regular on the D.C. cocktail circuit, said Mark Gitenstein, former counsel to the Senate judiciary committee and a fellow Obama transition advisory board member.

"If he had a choice between reading a briefing book and really getting up to speed for the hearing the next day, or going to a cocktail party, he's going to read the briefing book," he said

It's always evident when the commucrats get back into power. It's like the dead bird the cat dragged in to show you or the animal parts your dog finds in a field somewhere and drags back to your yard.

We are 2 days away from Comrade Obama receiving the Order of Lenin, the highest award a socialist can get. But before he's even received the award, his administration has been beset by scandal and intrigue. Does anyone remember anything like this happening when Dubya was going to be inagurated? Yet, Rahm is under fire from the Blago fiasco, Richardson had to withdraw his nomination and a few other incidents. And now we come to "slow Joe" Biden, Gaffe-machine extrodinaire. His son Beau is

You've got to be kidding me...

If anyone needs to know what America will look like if the commucrats get their way, all they have to do is look, North.


And half my family is from Canada. Newfoundland to be precise. This is what we can expect if the commucrats get their way. Liberals are like busy bodies, or Gladys Kravitz from the old TV series "Bewitched".

They want to tell everyone how to live their lives without practicing what they preach to others. And liberals are a lot like children, except not as cute.

This is also socialism at it's core. What recourse does a parent have in matters of discipline, if a court decides that perhaps you are being "too hard" on the child? And what recourse of legal action does a parent have if a court decides that they know better than you how to raise your kids? And why should the court even be involved unless there was a law broken to begin with?

My father would have taken out his belt and beat me 6 ways to next Sunday. Was he cruel? no. My mother would do the same thing. It's a parent's responsibility to raise children, not the courts. It's a parent's prerogative to punish their children when their children don't behave.

This is also further proof of the feminization of western society, especially here in the US. We are supposed to "feel" and not "think". What will happen to society when "feelings"replace "principals"? Men and women have their roles in raising children, both distinct and important, but men are supposed to be able to discipline a child when required in order to teach said child the difference between right and wrong. If she were my child, she would be wearing a pillow on her ass for a week as she wouldn't be able to sit down without remembering why her butt hurt so much. I am not blaming the father, he seems to be the injured party in this. Men are supposed to be men and women are supposed to be women. I am sick to death of liberals and society that want to make women out of men and men out of women. Please, give me a break.

It's no wonder that there are so many "male enhancement" ads out there as it seems men anymore have no balls, or at least there are those in society that don't want them to.

Court overturns father's grounding of 12-year-old

OTTAWA (AFP) — A Canadian court has lifted a 12-year-old girl's grounding, overturning her father's punishment for disobeying his orders to stay off the Internet, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The girl had taken her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on websites he tried to block, and then posting "inappropriate" pictures of herself online using a friend's computer.

The father's lawyer Kim Beaudoin said the disciplinary measures were for the girl's "own protection" and is appealing the ruling.

"She's a child," Beaudoin told AFP. "At her age, children test their limits and it's up to their parents to set boundaries."

"I started an appeal of the decision today to reestablish parental authority, and to ensure that this case doesn't set a precedent," she said. Otherwise, said Beaudoin, "parents are going to be walking on egg shells from now on."

"I think most children respect their parents and would never go so far as to take them to court, but it's clear that some would and we have to ask ourselves how far this will go."

According to court documents, the girl's Internet transgression was just the latest in a string of broken house rules. Even so, Justice Suzanne Tessier found her punishment too severe.

Beaudoin noted the girl used a court-appointed lawyer in her parents' 10-year custody dispute to launch her landmark case against dear old dad.

Spare me, jeez.

The power of prayer and the oncoming onslaught

I grabbed this from EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) which is the "Catholic Channel". My mother had suggested that I listen to the homily or sermon for all you protestants out there. The name of the priest is Father Tom Euteneur and he is talking about the power of prayer. He was explaining why it is important for people to pray. He's right. Prayer can achieve some remarkable things, even if it's a "no" answer, as it can guide us to do whatever God's will is for us. Now, there are many out there that say "Oh, God talks to you like George Bush?". That's not what that means. It means that you listen through prayer to do what is in your heart you know is right. Many times we over think what we should do, when all we have to do is be silent and still and listen to that inner voice to tell us what we should do. Some call it instinct, other's common sense. I believe in the power of prayer as I have seen it first hand.

I have the whole homily I recorded, but listen to what Father Euteneur says in this clip, tell me if it isn't chilling and perhaps prescient of what's to be expected once Comrade Obam-uh receives the Order of Lenin on the 20th. Many people say, "He's not even President yet, give him a chance!" or "You just don't want him to succeed, you want him to fail."

You're right. I want him to fail. I want him to be exposed for the snake oil salesman he is.

I often wonder how any person who calls themselves a "Christian" can honestly turn the other way knowing that people like Comrade Obam-uh and Princess Pelosi and Prince Harry Reid can let children die by either abortion or worse yet, partial birth abortion. All I have to do is look at my 5 kids and my grandkids and think "what if...". The joy my children and my grandkids have brought to the world is more than any stimulus package Obam-uh can offer. Yet he has voted 5 times to keep partial birth abortion. How does that so-called man call himself a Christian?

Yes, I want him to fail, because if he succeeds, he can do great damage to the country as we know it. The guy is a socialist at heart and it doesn't take my man, Albert Einstein to figure out what he wants to do. I hope he fails, because if he fails, it means that most common sense Americans have caught on the act. If he fails, it means our liberty and freedom will be preserved. If he succeeds? well, we become just another France or Germany or worse yet, a new Soviet Union.

The evolution of prosperity under Comrade Obam-uh

I got this idea from Terry Gilberg who is a host at KFYI

Bang Camaro

I don't even know what the hell that means, these guys were on Conan Tuesday night and they have like 10 lead singers. What it reminded me of, was a bunch of high school buddies at a kegger deciding after getting hammered to all have a bit of a sing-a-long. I think I would've stuck with one lead singer with the other 3 doing whatever "backup" vocals they do. After all, it sounds weird having 10 guys singing the lyrics, 2 or 3 might be different, but 10? And the opening riff done by the guy with the black explorer is way out of tune. You can really hear it when he plays the D chord before the "break out". Ugh.

I've listened to this song probably 5 times now and it gets worse each time. I lament, is this what Rock has come to anymore? Hell, if it is, then I need to get busy working on a new CD, I could get on Conan at this rate. listen to this song and tell me if sounds good to you.

"You're going to love my nuts"

Vince is back with Slap chop. Famous with his "Shamwow" commercial, he now comes back with slap chop. I like this guy. He has moxy, I guess it's called. I also hate Billy Mays (He always come out yelling at you, I hate that, "Hi I'm Billy Mays). But at :57 secs in, he says, "you're going to love my nuts" and I have a feeling that SNL is going to pick this up and run a skit based on that line. Anyway, if there is a pitchman out there that has it, Vince does. If you really pay attention to the spot, in the context of "you're going to love my nuts", there are a lot of double entendre. At least, I heard a few.

You just like the guy, or at least I do. I can see this guy going on to becoming a multi-millionaire if he isn't already. Watch the video, it's really an effective commercial and there are very few of them out there.

A good bit of advice from Roy Masters

I like Roy Masters. I have read 3 books of his and record his radio show and listen when I can. I practice the mediation he prescribes and it does work, even though it's really simple. The best of Roy, is that he doesn't want to be be seen as a guru. He would rather you learn the mediation and go on your way than make him some kind of demagogue. He is now offering video snippets of advice and thoughts on youtube. All you have to do is type in Roy Masters and you can find his channel. Here is a great clip.
