This video has been going around Facebook for the past three days. I figured it was something cheesy, so I basically ignored it - till this afternoon. It is so cute, and my first impression was this kid is going to be a future porn star. Don't ask me why - it is one of the most fukked up thoughts I think I've ever had. But watch the little boy, he knows the words and has the moves......

Now, having watched this future dance star - back to my wild imagination.

I wanted to send this video to a friend, and there was no embed included...I went to the www.orsmdotnet.......DON'T GO THERE!!! Unless you are a horny guy or gal - it is a PORN SITE.

I'm no prude, but for those of you who may be - thought I'd warn ya!! {{wink-wink}} You all just want me to stop typing so you can boogie on over there - huh??? No, I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to discuss the relationsh........HEY - WHERE DID YOU GO????????????????????????????


I have always been one of the first people to defend showbiz stars right to speak out on political issues, as they are, for the most part, informed Americans. They are "employees" the same as the rest of us and many major decisions affect them as well - maybe more due to receiving such grandiose wages.

I have heard Jon Voight ramble on in recent months, and to say I was not impressed is an understatement. There are times I want to thump someone in the head and give them the reality check they so justly deserve. But after watching this video, I have come to the conclusion - there is NO hope for people like this.

Again, throwing out the word "socialism" seems to make anyone a hero with the rethugs. They still don't and never will GET IT!!

There are so many statements he makes that are bold faced lies...but again, when it is stated on Faux Noise, it is taken as pure fact. He states the Stimulus bill failed - he just forgot that Bush passed the first bill, which has been spent. The second package has yet to be distributed in total. The banks have now returned $4 billion to the federal coffers from this stimulus - that does not sound like a FAIL to me.

Voight also makes the statement that Obama is telling us what cars we can drive. Again, he is not mandating that we drive anything, he is trying to make it more economical and ecologically better for all. Cars are still available - what is he seeing here?

Then Huckabee brings up the teleconference call with 1000 ecumenical leaders (I honestly was unaware of this), but I say "so what?" Bush invoked God at every turn, something I am not in favor of at all. Voight comes off to me as another right wing racist.

I was looking at the faces in this audience - mostly all young people. Sycophants that cannot think for themselves and have to be spoon fed any information that they feed off and perpetuate.

If I were a "movie star" I am sure I could afford the best health care, and even faded movie idols can stay in nursing homes paid for by their union. Are they so distanced from reality to not notice what is going on around them, the people who cannot even afford to go to the doctor or those who don't go because they don't want to face mounting bills? This attitude of not being able to choose their own doctor - BULLSHIT. The thought that the government will make all medical decisions for them - BULLSHIT. The act of rationing health care - BULLSHIT. And my favorite, death panels...BULLSHIT. Some of these people need to read their contracts with their health care providers, most if not all already have the exact same statement, regarding end of life consultations. Check out United Healthcare - it has been in their contracts for years. Major fukktards - these people can be.

I think I now understand why Jon Voight has an estranged relationship with his daughter Angelina Jolie. She even recognizes that he is an idiot. Just a note, Angelina Jolie stated quite a while ago, what wonderful medical care her mother received in France, while undergoing cancer treatments. Hmmm, makes me wonder!

So, any more famous movie stars out there, speak up - I have no problem at all...just make sense and be accurate in your statements.

Later.....I'm in a cleaning frenzy...........

DID YOU KNOW?????????

I received this in an email and found it interesting!!!



Well, the infamous HUFFER (Patrick Tribbett) has been arrested AGAIN!! He was spotted by some young boys, huffing his favorite gold paint in McMechen, WV this time. Of course, he was taken straight to the Northern Regional Jail - his home away from home, and settled in nicely I'm sure!

In all honesty, I don't believe he has ever hurt anyone, while inhaling the brain cell killer - but it is an illegal offense and following protocol, he has to be incarcerated. This has to be at least the 8th or 9th time (locally) he has been arrested for the same act since 1998.

I do find it interesting that the cops NEVER let him wash his face before the conventional MUG shot! At least this way, we know for sure whether he is on a gold or silver kick at the moment.

He goes through the process, gets fined, and is back out on the streets. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have a job, nor could he possibly hold one down - so how and if these fines get paid - I doubt it! But this poses the question - why isn't he sentenced to rehab or medical care?

I have heard him converse (or sort of) and he makes very little sense, the result, of course, of the inhalants. Until he is cured - or dead...he will continually keep being arrested and new pictures will emerge. These are four pics I have had saved in chronological order...and the only difference in all would be whether his hair is combed or not!! EGADS!!

I think I watched almost every single moment of Ted Kennedy's funeral service. I have to say, I cannot remember any Senator ever having such an elaborate service, but cannot imagine Kennedy's being anything but such as it was.
Listening to Ted, Jr. and Patrick eulogize their father so eloquently was beautiful. Rest In Peace Teddy...and hopefully we can move forward and get the health care reform you so diligently championed!
I had an enjoyable evening last night, the neighbors came over for steaks on the grill and good conversation. We often chat while they are grilling something "over the back fence." So I figured I like to cook and have company, so last night was the night. We stayed on the deck till the Steeler game was over, although it got quite chilly - then off they went to get their 5 year old daughter in bed, me to clean up (love my dishwasher) and get thegrandson in bed.
Since I noted this on Facebook...my neighbor across the street will be invited next, as I think they feel slighted - that would never happen. And NO - the asshole "new neighbors" will NEVER be invited!!! Harumph!

Have a great day and I shall return.....Later...............

UPDATE: Both charged with 28 counts..including aggravated rape, and facing LIFE in prison. **Yes, I believe in the death penalty, which they deserve!

When I first saw the picture of this young girl at age 11, I could not help but be enthralled by her beauty. Apparently that is the same thing, that these perpetrators of such a heinous crime believed also. Kidnapping Jaycee Dugard, while on her way to board the school bus, never to be seen by her mother and step-father for the next 18 years - excruciatingly painful.

More and more details are being revealed as time progresses. But the two charged with kidnapping and various other charges are now behind bars and will be arraigned at 4:00 pm EST, today. Phillip Garrido (age 58) and his wife Nancy (age 54), have been identified as the persons who kidnapped Jaycee 18 years ago. Now we find out that this pervert, fathered two children with this young girl - she giving birth when she was only 14 years old, to her first child. Her second child is now 11 - the same age as Jaycee when kidnapped.

As parents and grandparents, we can only presume how these parents felt upon the kidnapping of their daughter and the years since. The step-father says he felt that he was under the microscope all these many years, as he was the last one to see young Jaycee. I can't imagine his pain - but I can share in his elation that Jaycee has been reunited with her mother.

Maybe I have missed something in all the reports, but I have not seen an actual RAPE charge in the indictments. There was something similar to "attempt to commit rape", but that is not good enough. I made a vow when I had my first child, that no one would ever touch or harm my children - because I would end up their worst nightmare. I can only imagine the feelings the Dugards have for these animals.

I can't imagine what the next few months, maybe years will mean to Jaycee and her children and family relations. In 18 years, to think of all she is probably unfamiliar with, i.e., cell phones, Internet, HDTV, general news of the world...it boggles the mind. The authorities do know that she was not in school, so her education just stopped, other than any indoctrinations by these fukktards.

Jaycee and her children have never been to a doctor. Imagine that. The two children were born in the ramshackle sheds this pervert had hidden in a false backyard. I have a shed that I consider pretty rough - and I wouldn't let my dog even live there.

Jaycee was renamed Alissa by her captors and remained, as far as we know, in this outdoor shanty. Now, we find out that this Garrido had a blog, where he says he "completely turned my life around after the birth of the 11 year old." What does that mean? did he turn himself in 11 years ago and confess to his crimes? An affirmation like that needs to be supported by an action - I don't see that.

He made a statement to a California television station - that there are essentially things to come forward that will "knock us backwards." would this be a psychotic spin of some sort?

Now I have flashbacks to the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping in 2002. When she was found nine months later - Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee were arrested, but have never gone to trial - because they are deemed "insane" and unfit to stand trial. The state has even mandated forced medication to ensure a trial appearance - and this has not worked either. Will these two morons have a defense attorney to travel the same road as Smart's kidnappers?

Right now, my hope is that all possible resources will be afforded this young lady and assist in her reacclimation to our world. Education and physical care will be primary. Considering she remembered so much of her youth, before the kidnapping, I can't say she succumbed to a total Stockholm syndrome. I hope that the future spells all good things for these three lives. I equally hope that the judicial system does not let them down, in retribution they so justly deserve.

This pissed parent and grandparent.....shall return.....later.

I've listened to this several times today...and closing my eyes, I feel the words leave a message for all. This is a message to quiet the racism and hatred that is being fueled at this very moment in time.

I feel that we have lost a wonderful statesman, a human being who definitely had flaws and made major mistakes in his life...but he tried harder than anyone to correct and amend those errors. He fought for the underdog and downtrodden and most of the time - won.

Admittedly, I shed many tears listening to this speech. But I "got the message!"


Just listening today, made me feel a little better. Watching the funeral procession for Ted Kennedy on the way to the JFK Library, and all those who came out to honor this man, is a great shot.

When my "lawn care specialist" (he cuts grass only) showed up for the first time - in May I believe, I asked him if he could take the time to trim the bushes in the backyard. He kind of blew me off, and said not at that time, but he would get back to them later. I believe I have waited long enough.

Now, I don't pretend to even know the first thing about landscaping, but the "wild" appearance of these bushes, has been driving me to the brink of insanity. They look like alien creatures or something - with the two bushes growing together.

I own an electric hedge trimmer, so I got out the heavy duty extension cord, only to find out it was not long enough. So, I added another...and then another. I actually thought about contacting the fire department and having them on stand-by, in case this project had a bad outcome. Which could have been a good thing, since the fire department is responsible for stealing my 100 foot heavy duty cord a couple of years ago. Buttwipes!

Well, the task is 2/3 accomplished and it doesn't look too bad, if I say so myself. I raked up all the trimmings into a pile to mulch down, and the "wild" look is now gone. There is a third bush (to the left of these and on the other side of chain link fence), but the heat was killing me, so maybe...just maybe I might try tackling it after the sun goes down. I might try begging thedaughter to help possibly. Grr..

Theson sees that the grass cutter is paid, as I am not allowed to cut grass anymore. Just because I had a lousy heart attack (one of 8), resulting in triple bypass - lawn care has become a no-no in my life. Since I enjoy time on my deck...these bushes are a focal point - and they have been driving me nuts. I have now had another shower and I'm trying to cool off. I'm positive I will not accomplish much else today - I'm pooped already.

Enjoy the day all...be back....later......

****No one hit the Mega Millions last night...$325 million on Friday!! Sorry Monkey! We'll have to try again.




Usually I fall asleep to CNN and wake up to CNN. Last night was different, for whatever reason my somnambulistic channel surfing took me to channels I didn't recognize. As I rolled over to set the channel back to "home" turf, the first words I heard were that Ted Kennedy had passed away.

Realistically, we knew this day was coming, but it is always "too soon." In my entire lifetime, there has been a Kennedy in politics. Brother John was serving as a Senator when I was born, later to become POTUS.

Personally, I liked Ted and how he challenged for the underdog and HEALTH CARE!! After the assassination of Robert Kennedy, he stepped in as the patriarch of the entire Kennedy clan.

Without making this a long drawn out debate, the only downside to his history, which I had a very hard time with, was Chappaquiddick. In all honesty, he couldn't bring back the life of Mary Jo Kopechne, but I believe he tried all these years, to make up for wrongs through many good deeds and Senatorial leadership.

Rest in Peace Ted Kennedy...we will push onward for a viable health care reform, your last big dream.

Japan Buyer Backs Out of Crypt Above Marilyn

Japan Buyer Backs Out of Crypt Above Marilyn. Now how ridiculous is this?? The woman who owns the crypt, which was auctioned on e-bay, lost her husband TWENTY THREE years ago (he was 81). Something tells me this woman may just have been a "golddigger" twenty some years ago. Or else she is a very decrepit 100 year old woman with a mortgage, the only reason she was selling the crypt in the first place.

GOOD GRIEF!! Well babe...back to the drawing board and try to sell that hole in the wall again!

The common question on mornings like this is "where did the summer go?" It is the first day of school, and thegrandson is off and running for a day of getting back with old friends, a new teacher and a pretty good outlook for the coming months. We will have to wait and see how long that may last.

As for the summer passing quickly, he had actually reached to point of total boredom. The strange thing is that he essentially has played with two neighbor kids most of the summer - until three days ago, when kids from one street over, started coming over here to play. Why couldn't they have meandered over here weeks ago?

Going back to school on a Monday seems really strange to me, because my kids always started school on a Thursday. This allowed the teachers to organize and set up their classes before the onslaught of students. I haven't figured this out as yet, unless the school system is starting early to get in their "snow days" up front. I'm sure I will get an explanation or theory at some point in time.

This may be a great time to sneak back in bed for a few zzzz's, something I cannot do during the off-school months.

I shall return........later...........

From the minute this storm formed on August 23, 2005 over the Bahamas, it became a centerpiece on most news outlets. The National Hurricane Service had been busy that year (hint letter "K") with hurricanes aplenty. But this monster just grew consistently. Katrina became one of the five most deadliest storms to hit the U.S. - being the 6th strongest overall. The dollar loss may still exceed $150 billion...note "may still."

Being the news junkie that I am, I watched the progress of this storm as it made landfall and then headed into the Gulf of Mexico to grow even stronger, threatening Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

I will never forget the morning of August 29, 2005, as I was sitting in a waiting room at the local hospital, for my best friend to get through major surgery on the cervical vertebraes, a tricky surgery at best. The television was tuned into CNN and there was constant reporting from the Gulf coast areas - reporters I might add, that do stupid things in "killer" storms to inform the public. Hurricane Katrina had already been upgraded to a Category 5, which can be cataclysmic, but some of these reporters were hanging on to street signs, while debris is flying past their heads - all for the sake of news.

Don't get me wrong, I like to be informed, but I would rather that someone with a brain do the informing. Be that as it may...the days leading up to this storm, the warnings being issued, did nothing to save the 1,836 lives that were lost.

New Orleans suffered the most damage with 80% of the city flooded, the levees were breached in over 50 places, and the orders for mandatory evacuation were played down and eventually issued too late for some. The buck was passed over and over between federal, state and local governing bodies.

Ray Nagin, mayor of New Orleans ordered mandatory evacuations at 10 am on Aug. 28th - when Katrina was upgraded to a Cat 5 - establishing the Louisiana superdome as a "refuge of last resort." In his wildest dreams, I don't think he counted on over 26,000 people to head to that site.

I don't think anyone will forget "great job Brownie", Bush's FEMA unqualified director at the time. (Michael D. Brown). The man who failed to meet the needs of people who understandably, would be unable to evacuate, was praised by Bush - and had done absolutely nothing!

A major clusterfuck ensued after Katrina ravaged the Gulf coast. FEMA was mismanaged and lacking proper leadership, only 1/5 of trailers ordered ever arrived, only to be set up in areas without any utilities or on swampy ground.

Financial donations, medical supplies, mobile hospitals, water treatment necessities, doctors and medicine were offered, but turned down by the U.S. Smart move there. Granted, Cuba and Venezuela offered a great deal of assistance and one might have to reconsider offers from these countries, but there were no strings attached. It was humanitarian aide!!

Days after this catastrophe, many international news outlets were making accusations of racism - as nothing was being done for these people, with most victims being black. Shame on America for that...shame on America for not helping to rebuild this area and help these people rebuild some semblance of a life.

Major studies were initiated to actually see what happened (duh! the levees broke), and what should be done to avoid another catastrophe of this magnitude. All reports were to be turned over to Congress by the Army Corps of Engineers by mid 2009 - and I haven't heard a word about any report. Amazing - all the "care" our legislators have for the populace - allows a four year interval for a study to be initiated. That's pathetic.

Those living in the coastal areas of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi - are no better off today than they were four years ago. I understand some levee repairs have taken place, but all are not completed. there are still thousands of people displaced by this storm and at this point, may never return to their home areas.

For a country as advanced as we pretend to be - WHY - is this area not completely rebuilt (or a major portion) by this time? I know Bush never gave a damn, as most racist rethuglians tend to be. Yes, I believe a great deal of the lack of concern was due to race. I might think differently had we put our resources to work in this devastated area and for these people, than to continually fight an unjust war, costing untold billions of dollars.

This coming Friday is not an anniversary to celebrate - but maybe all government entities might take the time to rethink their steps for future possible cataclysmic events.

Later all...............

BREAKING NEWS!! NEW POST UP AT "PAST THE VELVET ROPE!" (Site will be a weekly posting.)

I need more coffee now...in order to possibly post something more substantial. Later..............

Friday, August 21, 2009


A few weeks ago, as my mind often rambles, I was thinking back to the 60's and 70's and "where are they now" images started coming to mind. One of these images was about Lt. William Calley, who was sent to prison - for life - for the My Lai Massacre.

Bouncing around the interwebulary strands tonight, I run across this article - and now I have my answers.

As my curiosity neurons started snapping - I headed to Wikipedia to get a quickie update. After reading, I was confused. It appears he was in and out of prisons, while venturing through the appeals process, and spent a relatively short time incarcerated.

Which, in my opinion then and still is - he should NEVER have even spent one day in prison. That was not a war that I supported and then using Lt. Calley as a scapegoat for the offenses ordered by his superiors - was WRONG. Do not get me wrong, I was deeply saddened by the loss of those lives at My Lai, but totally unfair that this man was singled out to take the fall.

The article is an excellent read - and it appears that after all these years he can begin to speak about this horrid experience.

Now I will have to conjure up some more of those old images from the past and bring them current.



Michael Bloomberg - is definitely a rich snobby SOB!! To make statements like this, leaves no plausible excuse for the goof. I would assume that when someone has $BILLIONS$ to count, a paltry multiple MILLIONS means absofuckinlutely nothing! the comprehension of the middle class struggling along - even trying to cover or obtain health insurance goes way over his head.

I am just about reaching the end of my rope with these rethugs and their opposition to affordable health care. Now, that the budget revisions came out today, they are going to have a hay day with the fact that it has increased. Never mind, the fact that the proposed health care is essentially paid for and will not contribute to the budget deficit.

I'm a firm believer in banning ALL lobbyists from D.C. The influence they exert is the cause for so much that is lacking in this country. The money spent on lavish parties and unreported "extras" to these representatives is unforgivable.

Michael Bloomberg, just keep spending your endless supply of money to ensure your re-election bid - and extending term limits to suit YOUR needs and desires...while the rest of us "little people" just trudge along.

Sorry, for the last post (now deleted) - which was the three videos to cover Jon Stewart's meet up with the lady responsible for the "death panel" rumor mongering. After embedding the clips - I had to manipulate the HTML (or it wouldn't publish - and then when that was done, I checked the blog and all appeared "good to go." So either the blog gods are pissed at me or I really fukked it up - which is a definite possibility. I will try to do better next time. Just a note...every time I try to embed one of Jon Stewart's clips - the same thing happens. So for those smarter than me (all of you), any suggestions would be welcome.

I'm cooking dinner now, and as soon as they pick up the phone at Domino's - all will be well, and we can eat in 30 minutes or less!!!

Have a great evening...hope to have better posts over the weekend. Later..........

I watched part of Barney Frank's Town Hall meeting last evening on CNNlive.com. The parts I was able to view were rather civil and I did miss this little confrontation, but had to post it now. People can say what they will about Barney Frank, I like him! He calls 'em as he sees 'em. He has his facts in order and can put someone in their place - using the SAME free speech mechanism - these goofballs are taking advantage.

The sad part is...this little snip of a girl, has no clue she has been dissed by Frank, and has a closed mind to all the details and facts of HR3200.


Tuesday, August 18, 2009


...to receive this email. Unfortunately, those who pass things on via the internet, NEVER research anything. Snopes verifies that this letter was circulating, but did not confirm that the NY Times received nor denied printing.

Anyone with half a brain, can decipher the bias from which this was written. No doubt Mr. Pritchett is a card carrying member of the "birthers" as well. Just reading through this (which was started in May 2009), makes me smile for the stupid!

I am adding my own comments in red!


Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others , you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
And that would be your own stupid fault, because all necessary info is available in a wide variety of resources.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. Well, that info is readily available as to the grants and scholarships he received. How did you pay for your education Mr. Pritchett and who gives a shit!

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. Obama spent no more time than a child of an ambassador or military personnel abroad, as a youth. Obama has experienced many cultures and various lifestyles (abroad) than many ever have an opportunity. Yes, Mr. Pritchett - he is culturally AN AMERICAN!

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. WTF does that have to do with a damn thing? Are you just a mental midget? And by the way, as a community organizer, he did have to meet payroll as there were federal guidelines imposed on spending. I'll bet he even had to devise the budget for these organizations.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core. How far back in the 13 presidents you have "lived under", did you have to go - to find one who served in the military? That would have been George H. W. Bush. This is NO prerequisite for high office.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others. I would hazard a guess that Barack and Michelle Obama have MORE class than you sir. You have sunk to level of being racist now. To say someone lacks humility - when Obama has stated many times, that he may have approached something wrong - or taken the blame...you sir, have issues.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail. Aha, getting your talking points from John McCain and Sarah Palin I see. Now, list these radical extremists and the acts they have made against America. You can't - never happened. You are a liar intent on finding followers of your lies.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad. And who is going to make all the past wrongs - right? Wonder of wonders, our president is trying a new approach abroad....honesty, my friend. Cite some quotes which back up this false claim please!

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. This is an arguable point. There are many good things to be said of how other countries operate and many are bad. Considering the amount of people suffering in this country and denied rights and privileges, because the rich find them useless - yes, some European operations work well. that would be the likes of CEO's on mega-corporations and Wall Street. HMO's and on and on.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one. Would you lose something on this? And if you read any pertinent material, you know this is a blatant lie. But changes necessary have to start with the government. Someday, you may be one without health insurance and end up bankrupt because of a life-saving treatment. Our president cannot state enough for someone like you - that this is not a government run health plan. DUH?!?

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves. And you don't believe in global warming either, I'll bet! This does not surprise me. Saving our eco system has to be in the forefront of thought - this matter will not just "go away."

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world. WOW - that looks good in print. You had to be the biggest fan of Reagan and his "trickle down" theory that DIDN'T WORK!! That highest standard of living was only for the greedy Capitalists, who nearly bankrupted this country - and started a global meltdown.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations. Call it what you will...had this administration done absolutely nothing - this country would have been in total ruin. The banks and large insurance companies dominated through lies and on the backs of our citizens. I guess you just hate it when your 401(k) was hit like everyone else - so blame the black man! That Bush fella that occupied the WH for eight years, just sat back and ignored the catastrophe as the walls were caving in. He just assumed he would let the new guy handle the problem. It may have been rough - but he definitely quelled the crisis.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. Back this one up buddy. There was plenty of dissent from all parties. My question - are you an economist? There have been plenty of those professionals scratching their heads during this rough time also. Better to take a step forward than just sit and wait for the roof to fall.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. I would pit your intelligence to that of Pres. Obama any day. He has more intelligent people to contact and listen to than any past president. He is highly respected and has the wherewithal to call on those more specialized than to "shoot from the hip" like Bush.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. Facts buddy...state facts. You know this how? What signs have you seen that no one else has seen. I mean facts, not just made up bullshit!

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. Apparently, your mother ship is calling (Faux News) - what easy pass have they given Pres. Obama? As I said before - don't blatantly make a statement without backing up your sources.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view. Get your head out of your ass sir. If anything, Pres. Obama has made jokes about the network, not the minions. And watch closely - they offer no conservative points of view, just vile racist remarks. You trust the college drop outs like Limbaugh and Hannity? Go ahead, that's your right. Beck, the mentally unstable has NO qualifications to offer a differing view. O'Reilley, just likes to scream louder than everyone and blame rape victims for their plight.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Facts....again cite facts. There are none, but this looked good on the list, didn't it??

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years. What's stopping you Pritchett...people are carrying guns to his informative town hall meetings. I know that makes ya happy! Your liberties are not at stake like they were, when Bush said your life is no longer private...but that's OK, he was a white man and must know what he is talking about.

Mr. Pritchett, your letter is one of the biggest jokes I have had today. Also, the thought that someone would even send this to me, knowing I am an avid Obama supporter, I'm not a bigot, nor am I shallow enough to write a vague and inciteful letter such as this - nor would I even consider passing it on to others.

Lou Pritchett

TRUE - CHECK: http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/youscareme.asp

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise! Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now.

As I stated earlier, today was not the day to send something like this to me. I totally enjoy an intelligent conversation, but one look at something like this, makes it easy to understand the intended goal.

Thankfully, these people are in the minority and since this has been relegated to the internet...probably harmless, for the time being.

Now, since I am still pissed, I many things to accomplish, so.........later.....


And the stupidity goes on and on. This man had a pistol on his hip AND an AR-15 (semi-automatic assault rifle) slung over his shoulder, while standing in a protest group against health care reform in Phoenix yesterday. Again, our president was giving another town hall forum, to try and assuage the lies and misinformation floating around.

This man refused to identify himself to reporters (I'm sure he had to, to the Secret Service), but made the claim "In Arizona, I still have some freedoms!" WTF?? My question to him would have been..."in your pea sized brain - what freedoms do you NOT have? What have you lost?" Another example of "the stupid."

Those with "legal" guns could not have gotten into close proximity to the president, regardless of any state laws (openly carrying weapons). When the Secret Service is protecting the president - the venue becomes a federal site, thus weapons not allowed on a federal site. But I question the logic here. Most Secret Service personnel carry handguns - a definite non-match to any assault weapon.

The later reports after this meeting, was that there were at least a dozen armed people in the crowd. Would anyone want to wager there were a helluva lot more than that - that were "concealed?"

Can you imagine - just thinking back a little to 2004 - people were arrested at Bush get-togethers for wearing T-shirts in protest of that dickwad. And armed people cannot be dealt with now. Something is seriously wrong here. Bush protestors were also relegated to "free speech zones", blocks away from venues - to air their grievances.

Before anyone decides to chew my ass out...I was raised shooting guns. I am actually a pretty good shot even. I have no problems with guns in the home for protection or for hunting...but to walk down the street with one strapped on my waist - not hardly!

Have you ever noticed signs similar to this - at grocery stores, schools and other private entities? I have, and wonder why this cannot be enforced at these political venues. Plain and simple...NO GUNS ALLOWED. The only reason to blatantly flaunt these weapons at these "health care forums" is for intimidation purposes ONLY. Allowing this to continue is the height of stupidity and is a ticking bomb, if you will. All it takes is for one whackjob to get pissed and "go postal."

As long as the Boehners, Bachmann's, Palins and Gingrich's of the world keep blasting their lies and misinformation, something bad is going to happen. Yes, I am scared!

And to our President...the Democrats WON the election...the hopes for any bipartisan support has gone to hell, so it's time to use as much Democratic support as can be mustered to get things done. Bush had no problem ramming through legislation when he had the majority - enough of trying to be Mr. nice-Guy! It's not working.


Now for the mundane. It seems that the fashionistas in the political arena want to make something out of the First Lady and being photographed wearing shorts.

Get a grip asswipes...the family took a vacation to Yellowstone Park and other sites...you expected her to dress formally?? Maybe Mamie Eisehower, Nancy Reagan, or Barbara Bush would have worn a dress with matching coat and purse, but Michelle Obama is a younger woman and a good mother and a down to earth individual. Shorts were appropriate for the heat and atmosphere. And puh-leeze media whores...these are NOT short shorts. THESE are short shorts!!

I stole this sign from HuffPost, and feel it just needs to be shared. This was at a New Hampshire health care reform town hall. Does anyone else see all the confusion? A gathering of morons, being told to hold a sign of protest! All rightey then...no brain required. IT WORKS!!

...and this one which has been posted all over the place:

This one poses the question: "How are all these Asian youths getting here, or are they hiding in the bushes now?" {{slapping myself in the head - not understanding STUPID!}}

So here are MY signs for y'all of the STUPID family:

Till something better comes along to post...and I get done re-arranging furniture and sweating to death.......I shall be back....later..............
