    How’s the wheel?

  13. I tried the embed code on the Onion page. . . no joy!

  14. Hope they gave you some good meds. Get well.

  15. To embed vids like this and other “off brand” videos, you need to use VodPod addon from a firefox browser.

  16. Heh. Good luck with that PJM.

    Just show us your boobs and move on. Don’t look back.

  17. Hey, I was just reminded of something.

    I have learned that all computer screens are covered with bacteria, dust, & germs – on the inside of the screen – that can be dangerous to your health. This is caused by a variety of reasons and can prove to be a health hazard for everyone who uses a computer. The CDC have said that this problem can be as dangerous as cigarette smoke because of the time that most people now spend on computer. This is especially concerning in light of the rapid spread of H1N1.
    As a special present to you, I am providing you with a means to correct this health concern. Click on this link. It will clean the inside of your screen.

  18. I fixed the vid for PJ, because she was too busy licking windows to figure it out herself.

  19. Re poat from the last POS poat:

    Hillbuzz changes their minds about GWB.

    Wow. Cheney too.

  20. I know she’s already gone, but good thoughts to you for a quick and painless-as-possible healing, sohot.

  21. wow, there is this unbelievably cute blond standing in the gate here. Sadly, she’s talking on her cell and sounds like just the most annoying bitch on the planet.

  22. well, since I’m all alone here, I guess I’ll just say goodbye to myself as I board my next flight and hope that I don’t die in a fiery crash.

  23. DON’T DIE IN A FIERY CRASH!!!!!!

  24. Probably not as unbelievable cute as this one:

  25. Is he gone?

    Thank God.

    I was really getting sick of having to kiss his ass.

  26. Wishing you well and ample pain medications, Sohos!!

  27. OK, I confess to my hostage absence last night: I was playing Modern Warfare 2 all night.

    And the airport terrorism scene? Dude. It was intense. Like holyfuck-could-I-be-a-mass-murderer?-intense. A bit nauseating. So, good news: I’m not cut out to be a spree killer. Lucky you!

  28. LauraW – I just know I’m going to get banned for not sucking up!!

    H/S – Who’s the hawt babe?

  29. That would be my hawt wife.

  30. That’s your wife?

    Uh oh.

    **makes note to never go back to that bar*

  31. The Ace meetup’s in Vegas. See y’all there.

  32. Re poat from the last POS poat:

    Hillbuzz changes their minds about GWB.

    Pupster, hillbuzzboyz are just pissed that Barry took Hillary’s crown. They have been ‘apologetic’ since January. Had Hillary won, Bush would still be shit on their shoe.

    For example, from them yesterday…

    UPDATE: It has now been confirmed that President Clinton didn’t actually say anything about “teabaggers”, so crazy people who have been sending hate mail to us today need to vacate their Maureen Dowd moment where their indignance over something that was never even actually said confirms how unhinged they are. Honestly, some of you out there just hate the Clintons so much you must sit on the edge of your seats waiting for either of them to say anything that you can twist and distort. How many years have you been doing this now? You realize none of them is the POTUS currently, and the person in that role says and does ACTUAL bad things each and every day. Apparently, what everyone is worked up about is someone paraphrasing Clinton incorrectly, and totally get wrong what he actually said. So cool it on all the hate mail to us telling us we should stop supporting a man we’ve campaigned for four times now and have admired since 1990.

    We are never going to move away from the Clintons…and it’s a weird obession to use Maureen Dowd-level hallucinations to try to make us.

    As I said on another blog…

    Flamers have a penchant for bitchy women, chaos, and people who make them ‘feel’ wuvved. So long as Hillary comes off as going to do something for the gay cause, they will swallow government run healthcare, higher taxes, and Chavez-style life dictates….because ‘she likes us, she really likes us’.

  33. The Ace meetup’s in Vegas. See y’all there.

    Geoff, I saw you in the thread. Me and Mr. Cyn are planning to go too.

  34. When’s the Vegas thing?

  35. Catman needs to do more pushups!

  36. Geoff is only going to see Gabe.

  37. Ace is actually working (yeah! I know!) on getting a meet-up going that won’t be just morons. Says he might have a “draw” too, but not saying who. Vegas is the place.

  38. Dammit, misread; sorry Cuff.

    Spring.

  39. Ace is actually working (yeah! I know!) on getting a meet-up going that won’t be just morons. Says he might have a “draw” too, but not saying who. Vegas is the place.

    I was only recently awarded moron staus by the humped one herself.

  40. Geoff is only going to see Gabe.

    I met him at the CT meetup, though we didn’t converse much. Poor guy is in a tough position, being a tiny minority like that. But he handles it well.

  41. I think they’re thinking about Aprilish, though there’s still a lot of noise.

  42. Poor guy is in a tough position, being a tiny minority like that.

    Funny, but I thought the world had a sufficient supply of young, arrogant, know-it-alls.

    Touche!

    Well, the market is certainly long on crusty old grouches…

  46. xBrad – STFU. No, really S.T.F.U.

  47. Hey everyone.

    Did I walk-in on anything?

  48. No. How are you this evening, Ms. Carin?

  49. I’m good. Had a great workout afternoon.

  50. I am thinking of moving back to Las Vegas.

    This health care debate has completely shut down any new clients coming in.

    If I sell our house I can purchase a nice home in Vegas with cash and more cash in reserves. If I stay here I may burn through my reserves over the next two years.

    This situation has me sick.

  51. MCPOld, you better check your facechimp.

  52. This situation has me sick.

    You said it, brother.

  53. Wow. This is pretty incredible news: US govt seizes 4 buildings linked to Iran, 3 of them freaking mosqueses. Holy shit:

    http://tinyurl.com/yk5zgow

  54. If I stay here I may burn through my reserves over the next two years.

    That really sucks Uniball but you got to do what you got to do.

    …”What country before ever existed a century & a half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”….

  55. Car in,
    Never in my adult life did I see this coming.

    It has me stressed to the point of wanting to seriously downsize, to the point where I have zero debt. Even if that means giving up some of the things I love, like easy access to the slopes and mountains. The economic stress I will loose is worth it.

    I am repulsed by our government, completely repulsed and shocked.

  56. This is pretty incredible news: US govt seizes 4 buildings linked to Iran, 3 of them freaking mosqueses. Holy shit:

    RACISITSESES!!!!

  57. Here’s the kicker: I bet Obama had no idea this operation was going down. One of those pesky things he inherited from GWB dontchaknow.

  58. prokn,
    I used to not take quotes like that seriously.

    I used to never think that revolution or nationwide civil unrest by the middle class could happen in my lifetime.

    Now, I am almost to the point where I believe it is inevitable.

    The level of corruption and arrogance at the federal level is breathtaking and nauseating.

  59. Never in my adult life did I see this coming.

    My husband is super conservative. He saw the writing on the wall in ’06. Moved a shitload out of his 401k.

    It has me stressed to the point of wanting to seriously downsize, to the point where I have zero debt.

    I don’t think we have seen anything yet as to what the f*cks have planned for us. Downsize what you can. Eliminate the debt that you can.

    We’re doing what we can but no way can we get the mortgage gone and fast enough. IF we can get rid of the debt….off the radar we go.

    Durable goods, stock the dry and canned goods. Husband says he wants cash on hand, but what good will it be when cash ain’t worth wiping your butt with?

  60. I’m thinking that that Russki guy who predicted the fragmentation of the US may have been on to something.

  61. but what good will it be when cash ain’t worth wiping your butt with?

    Good point. Cash ’em in now for Tucks.

  62. http://tinyurl.com/ydscc4e

    Have you guys seen this yet?

    Fucking unbelievable.

    Quote:
    It’s Section 2531 of the bill — to be precise Section 2531(4)b — and it provides as follows:

    The new health bill will empower the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make grants to states that reform their medical malpractice systems. There are just two conditions: Those reforms must not “limit attorneys’ fees or impose caps on damages.”

  63. That’s what those asshats in Washington don’t get. The socialist tendencies of the left are going to really hurt absolutely everyone making under 1 million. And everyone working for those people making under 1 million. And everyone who provides some service those making under 1 million dollars. Shit rolling down-hill from that point.

    The truly rich? The folks in Washington? They’ll all be fine. Folks in hollywood.

  64. The level of corruption and arrogance at the federal level is breathtaking and nauseating.

    Done with our money. Turning us into a Chicago thugocracy with our money.

    Need to start the fertilizing with the fellating media whores.

  65. Uni, I know exactly what you mean. In 2005, my wife and I were entirely financially independent. I had built an extremely successful construction business and life was great.

    We made a decision based on a sound financial analysis to buy an Inn with restaurant and banquet facilities. Granted it wasn’t risk free, but who could have foreseen the real estate market collapsing, gas going to over $4 a gallon, and all of the job losses that killed tourism.

    To keep afloat we’ve used all of my 401k and at this point I haven’t had a paycheck since January. I’m 60 years old, and I’m not sure I’ll see things “come back.” Not with this group of thieves in Washington.

    But, hang in there. Something always comes along to save the day.

  66. This is the anger that generated the tea parties. and that fuck Pelosi has the nerve to say it is astroturf.

  67. I’ve not seen that one Uniball.

    How ’bout this….Obama to purge civil service of republican hires…

    http://tinyurl.com/ylaas86

  68. I sometimes think about purchasing some rental property and dropping out to Chile or Germany with the family.

    This thought has been entering my mind more and more lately.

    But then I think, Fuck no! I really want to fight his thing and change the trajectory, but how? We don’t have media, we don’t have education.

    We have the internet and radio, that’s it.

    The mentality of our nation has changed as well. First and second generation immigrants are almost all D with third world mentalities. They have not been educated to understand why our nation is great, why we believe in freedom and why self determination is better than cradle to grave security.

  69. That’s some fucking political hardball right there. Fucking third world style shit, beasn.

  70. Nice beaver:

  71. That’s some fucking political hardball right there. Fucking third world style shit, beasn.

    Where is the republican leadership screaming from the rooftops like Pelosi and Reid put their mugs out there every time Bush farted.

  72. I’m thinking that that Russki guy who predicted the fragmentation of the US may have been on to something.

    Helloooo Texas.

  73. beasn, what leadership?

    McCain?

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  74. I’ve been getting a kick out of this site — http://marinetraffic.com/ais/default.aspx?level0=100#

  75. The mentality of our nation has changed as well.

    My dad is not second or third generation. My mother’s mother was an immigrant. Both parents have a huge bug up their ass about people who have successfully accumulate any wealth.

    Green with envy. Envious enough to love what Barry is doing. If they can’t have ‘that kind of money’, then noone should.

    My mom seems to forget why her mother came to this country.

  76. Now you know what holding court with a union thug every fucking week in the Oval Office will get you. Venezeula here we come.

  77. beasn, what leadership?

    That’s what I said.

  78. Now you know what holding court with a union thug every fucking week in the Oval Office will get you.

    That right there is what gets you on my dad’s shit list. Unions are what made this country, YOU UNGRATEFUL BASTAGE!!. They care for the little guy (you have no idea how that phrase sends my blood pressure to torque).

    He won’t forgive me for insulting his beloved thugs and is still pissed my husband tried to instruct him on how SS is a huge ponzi scheme.

  79. The future? http://cbs2chicago.com/local/pembroke.illinois.poorest.2.1307100.html

  80. The future?

    Yep…..

    …”There are signs of hope however. The town is applying for millions of dollars in federal grants to build some 60 low-income homes.

    And Pembroke hopes that soon, a local police department can be re-formed. Currently, the County Sheriff provides patrols”…..

    Everyone becomes teat suckers.

  81. Helloooo Texas.

    Save me a space when you get there.

  82. I am banking on everything changing next year. If it doesn’t, we may have to walk away and start over with new names.

  83. I sometimes think about purchasing some rental property and dropping out to Chile or Germany with the family.

    We’re thinking about Belize. It’s cheap, tropical, not too far away, they speak English, and they use the dollar.

  84. If it doesn’t, we may have to walk away and start over with new names.

    Agreed. I’m going to go by “Leon Caruthers”. Look for me in the west Texas refugee camps.

  85. Michael, if they use the dollar, they’re screwed.

  86. Nah, the dollar will still be better than your typical banana republic currency.

  87. Nah, the dollar will still be better than your typical banana republic currency.

    I’ve had just about enough of your unhinged optimism.

  88. Let’s invade Belize.

  89. So we should go to Vegas and drink with Ace, for tomorrow we emigrate.

  90. Xbrad can drive the tank, Brew can interpret, Geoff can handle communications and maths, Phat can bomb the shit out of them and MCPOld can load stuff.

    And, I’ll be king.

  91. Michael can be in charge of, ahem — entertainment.

  92. I guess I better get back to studying Spanish.

  93. The man who would be king.

  94. I’ll be in charge of the wimminz camp followers.

  95. http://doubleplusundead.mee.nu/we_have_found_our_savior

    Heh

  96. I don’t think I like Uniballs plan. It’s the people that act responsibly that get screwed in the end. I say game the system, buy some really cool cars and a condo in Belize.

  97. I’m just going to drink heavily, then get a free liver under Obamacare.

  98. Heh, the anesthesia would wear off and you would have 2 livers, 1 kidney, no spleen and boobs.

  99. Who needs a spleen if you’ve got boobs?

  100. I hadn’t thought about asking for boobs, Scott…

  101. What the fuck is wrong with you sad sacks? Did we give up after the germans bombed pearl harbor?

    Fuck no!

    I think we have reached the point where the crash is inevitable, but remember: In confusion there is opportunity, and the number one thing that will occur is that these twatiniststas in the federal government will answer for their crimes, either in formal proceedings, or with blood.

    We chose the eagle, not the turkey, you hosefuckers. We will soar again, and if you are truly the kind to slip out the back door during the only fight in our lifetime that matters, then I don’t want to have anything else to do with you. You’re dead to me.

    Even if it all remains fubared for the rest of my life, I have children, and plan to have grandchildren, and I want them growing up not just in a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world, but in a living testimony that free people can govern themselves and prosper.

    Now knock this defeatist “let’s hand everything over to the fucking marxist union loving thugs” and start talking about what you will do when reconciliation is no longer an option and all we have left is all we truly need: those Bibles and guns that they fear so damn much.

    You’re all worse than a gaggle of thirteen year old girls crying that Mommy Gubmint is ruining your life. Hostages don’t get mad. They get even.

  102. One thing you haven’t discussed is the almost unfettered LEGAL immigration from the 3rd world. Swimmer and “Turncoat” Specter have rigged the system so that whites from Europe no longer need apply. Only people of color and Mooselimbs are getting in. . . and in huge numbers.

    They bring their third world shithole lifestyles with them and the PC/Diversity mantra of this century ensures that they WILL NOT ASSIMILATE.

  103. BiW, it’s only fantasy. I’m not going anywhere.

    Unless TX secedes.

  104. ^^^ I’m guessing BiW isn’t big on the 140 character limit on Twitter.

  105. xBrad – BURN!!!!

  106. what up douche guzzlers

  107. Brad:

    Nope.

  108. I admire BiW’s pluck, but I think that’s naive. Socialism is like entropy – it constantly gets bigger, and you can never roll it back without a lot of work. In the case of socialism, that work would involve pressing the reset button on the government. That, simply, ain’t gonna happen.

  109. TBOM, stand and fight, or expatriate?

  110. Socialism is like entropy – it constantly gets bigger, and you can never roll it back without a lot of work.

    Government is like that, not just socialism. The government’s job is to hire bureaucrats and collect taxes to pay for them.

  111. Any organization will tend to work to increase its authority and power. It’s the nature of the beast.

  112. Cool site Mesa,
    Look at all the cruse ships in and around Miami / Lauderdale

  113. But it’s easier to roll back government authority than it is to roll back social services. We may be able to pare down government powers, but we’re never getting rid of Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.

    Not that we’re going to be able roll back gov’t authority, either.

  114. I tend to foresee the thing collapsing under its own weight. It may take a lot of lives and a lot more fortunes with it, but anything unsustainable (like our present FedGov) will not sustain itself. I still expect us to either default to on our debt or get into a shooting war with China to avoid having to repay them. Either way, the government will crack under the strain, and we’ll end up an Spanglish-speaking Argentina.

  115. Will we get hot Argentinian chicks out of the deal?

    Just looking for an upside here.

  116. Hello Hostages!

    To whoever added Barrelhouse Boys to the blogroll, thank you, nice person!!!

  117. Or will be lucky to buy a McDouble off the $1000 menu at the drive thru?

  118. Will we get hot Argentinian chicks out of the deal?

    Probably not, but poverty may leave us all quite thin, so there’s that.

  119. That is what I am talking about

  120. Hi, Romy!!

  121. **waves to Romy**

    **still waiting on a sheep**

  122. **checks Amazon

    Looks like Monday the 16th, XBrad.

    **chuckles some more about evil deed.

  123. Hi Chief! I haven’t yet read all the poats since yesterday – did you play any golf today?

  124. I’m still thinking about how to explain an inflatable sheep to mom when she asks what’s in the package, and why some chick in Alabama that I’ve never met is sending me one.

  125. Romy – Today I did housework and played Halo 3.

  126. XBrad, something tells me your mother would not find Skippy’s List amusing. On the other hand, it looks like the book should show up first. The chick is at least erudite. Or iridite.

  127. Who irradiated whom??

  128. Let’s invade Belize.

    That’s actually not a bad idea. About 30 morons could do it with hand guns, pepper spray, and a few pellet rifles. We could set up a Jim Jones type of jungle compound, where I will teach you Lutheran doctrine. Kool-Aid will not be served at the mess hall, I promise.

  129. Mom is a lot less fun since she quit smoking and drinking, Romy.

  130. Chief, take your pick – van de Graaff accelerator, Pelletron, or strontium-90 source.

  131. Michael – Kool-aid is excellent for stripping wax from linoleum tiles.

  132. Romy – Tomorrow, I’ll be prepping the Master Suite for painting this weekend. I would rather pass another kidney stone than tape but, it has to be done.

  133. XBrad, my mom at least enjoyed Bill Cosby, Bill Engvall and Jeff Foxworthy. I also got her to listen to Otis Twelve with the Mean Farmer and Space Commander Wack skits.

    But she wouldn’t have found an inflatable sheep funny, unless it was something for a nativity scene.

  134. Chief — I’m thinking we will have dirt floors for at least five years. The roof will be thatch, and we’ll be sleeping in hammocks.

  135. I would rather pass another kidney stone than tape

    I’ve had a kidney stone, and that’s some serious hatin’.

  136. Sleeping in a hammock beats sleeping on a dirt floor.

  137. Michael – Have you actually been to Belize? They have bugs down there the size of House Finches and in numbers that rival the atoms in the universe.

  138. Romy – So have I.

  139. V…I need to learn to fish!!!!

  140. You morons should have just done like Car in and ripped that fuckin’ kidney out.

  141. Belize has the largest reef in the northern hemisphere. Good fishing and Diving

  142. The calender is $12 Tbom

  143. “They have bugs down there the size of House Finches”

    Food!

  144. Scott – You are aware that there is more than just a semantic difference between “protein” and “food”, right?

  145. here is the link Tbom it got lost
    https://store.intermediaoutdoors.com/shop/ItemDetail.aspx?item=1CFS10&

  146. phesant, quail, turkey are good
    Finches?

  147. Finches may be edible, if not entirely palatable.

    But bugs?

    **Shoots Michael in the face with a Tazer set to “Lutheran”**

  148. **Shoots Michael in the face with a Tazer set to “Lutheran”**

    Cheap Chinese model. The good ones have a Luthern setting.

  150. Fried bugs.

    Yum

  151. >> where I will teach you Lutheran doctrine. Kool-Aid will not be served at the mess hall, I promise.

    You won’t need it. We’ll be bored to death.

  152. We’ll be bored to death.
    Hehehe!

  153. We’ll be bored to death.

    Speak for yourself. I, for one, shall be shooting spitballs with abandon and glee.

  154. I’ll just be shooting.

  155. I just meant those that didn’t commit suicide first.

  156. have any of you beer caned a turkey? I might try that this thanksgiving

  157. Once Vmax, once.

    But I gotta tell you, that turkey was pissed.

  158. Dave was pretty surprised, since he didn’t get all that upset when Rosetta beer-canned him.

  159. look, he’s a nice guy, ok?

  160. Vmax, use something like Foster’s?

  161. “But I gotta tell you, that turkey was pissed.”

    hahahahahahaha….Dave relates with wildlife.

  162. I think I might need a bigger can

  163. You try shovin one of those 55 gallon drum cans of Fosters up a turkey’s ass, you got yourself a fight right there my friend.

  164. heheheh

  165. I’m not sharing my beer with a turkey.

    Or any of you turkeys.

    What part of “crash” were you having trouble grokking? What these clowns are doing now cannot last. We all know that. As much as I’d like to turn the beast around, I can see that we are going to need the object lesson for the 48%ers, because only when the gubmint finally gets around to setting eyes on their stuff will we reach a point enough conflict is directed at the socialists rather than a crossfire.

  171. Romy – Great choice in tunes!!!

    This song is in it, I think. . .

    Heh.

    Oh, you weren’t kidding?

  175. What was that one good movie that Nicolas Cage was in with Meg Ryan?

    The proper format for that question is ‘What was the title of that city of angels movie with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan.’

  176. Where the hell did everyone go?

  177. Ahhh, that’s the one, Jewstin!

  178. City of Angels.

  179. I never saw City of Angels, but Iris is a great song.

  180. You’re all worse than a gaggle of thirteen year old girls crying that Mommy Gubmint is ruining your life. Hostages don’t get mad. They get even.

    Honey, you have no idea. Crossing a beasn is not a good thing.

  181. Jewstin, somebody in my house liked it so much that we had to watch the original German version as well.

  182. Another favorite:

  183. CoA wasn’t bad, but they killed the wrong one at the end of the movie.

  184. What part of “crash” were you having trouble grokking?

    That’s true – I dropped the “crash” part of the argument because it’s unacceptable to subject my family to those circumstances. I’m also not as optimistic about the recovery prospects. That sent me back to the premise: can we avoid the crash? And I think we agree on the answer: not likely without catastrophic measures.

  185. Haven’t seen City of Angels, is it worth adding to the Netflix list?

  186. Romy – According to Herself, it’s a two hanky movie

  187. The problem with a “crash” is that the resulting political environments are almost universally bad.

    Our revolution was a historical oddity in that we weren’t overthrowing our government, but rather empowering the existing local government by freeing it from its colonial master.

    And still we almost failed.

  188. >> but Iris is a great song

    Heh. I remember bout 5 years ago when my eldest daughter asked me if I had ever heard the song “Iris”, and I said “oh yeah, Goo Goo Dolls, John what’s his name, Rzeznik”..

    she looked at me like a foot had just sprung up outta my head, and said “you KNOW who he is?”

    hahahaha.

  189. Eh, I’ve gotten to where I’m tired of that song. The only goo-goo dolls song I like is their cover of “Give a Little Bit”

  190. Eh, I’ve gotten to where I’m tired of that song.

    *Throws pig’s blood on Xbrad’s fur coat.

  191. I’ve still got the hots for Meg Ryan tho.

    And I was disappointed that the kerfuffle over her affair with Russell Crowe overshadowed “Proof of Life” which was a much better movie than folks gave it credit for.

    And David Caruso was actually pretty good in it.

  192. You got tired of it recently, or years ago like the rest of us?

  193. That’s not a fur coat, you moron.

    I’ve just got a hairy back.

  194. Meg Ryan, unless proper;ly directed, has all of the screen presence of a retarded aardvark

  195. And David Caruso was actually pretty good in it.

    And for that, I will kick you in the poon. Even if its true, how can you say that? You’ll ruin, just ruin, all those ensueing years of bad acting which were trying so hard to prove that he. was. the. worst. actor. evah!.

  196. I got tired of it about the time it came out, Dave.

    **acts like a hipster douche who thinks anything that hits the mainstream is completely lame**

  197. Meg Ryan, unless proper;ly directed naked, has all of the screen presence of a retarded aardvark

    FTFY

  198. AD, Caruso really did have to work to get back to the same lame acting he showed on NYPD Blue. Seriously, besides the Sunglasses of Justice, is there any difference between Horatio Caine and whatever his NYPD character was?

  199. That’s not a fur coat, you moron. I’ve just got a hairy back.

    **spit take

  200. Meg Ryan is good in cutesy bubbly movies.

  201. Romy, you should have sent Xbrad a curry comb for his birthday.

  202. hahaha, ok

  203. Romy, you should have sent Xbrad a curry comb for his birthday.

    Or a real sheep.

  204. The problem with a “crash” is that the resulting political environments are almost universally bad.

    Do you think I relish the thought of post-civil war politics?

    I can easily envision an atmosphere that would make the French Reign of Terror look like a five-year-old’s birthday party.

    Still, it comes down to this simple equation: Either the Constitution means what it says, or it doesn’t. We the people are either the final arbiters of what it says and more importantly, what limitations it places on government, or we aren’t.

    If the answer to either of those propositions is negative, than all freedom is an illusion. If the answer to both of those propositions is positive, then we each have a choice to make, because if it hasn’t yet become clear to you yet, you should know that the government, those tasked to rule within the confines of the law set forth in the Constitution, is now largely a mix of coniving schemers who will ignore it when they can no longer twist it to meet their ends, and ignoramuses, who have no idea what it says and cannot contemplate a limitation on their ultimate aims and powers, both intent on centralizing their power without regard to the cost or the damage they leave in their wake.

    Part of the reason that we find ourselves in the predicament we’re in today is because the schemers deftly distracted us, and because we ourselves comforted ourselves with the idea that someone was going to “take care of it”, and nothing would be expected of us…we who understood what was going on, and quietly abdicated our duty to become involved and take our turn preserving and defending the republic not just against its enemies, but from a creeping lack of character that allowed such craven calculation to run its course, and make corruption commonplace.

    Reagan, the last great defender of the American Ideal is dead. His armor lies empty, his sword rusting, and all because those who know the chorus refuse to sing out. The sweep of the wind and the furtive movements of the spoilers are the dominant features of our political landscape because we have allowed those without moral guidance to be ashamed of our own. Such is our sorrow, and we will have to complete the bitter harvest from the salted earth before we can begin anew.

  205. besides the Sunglasses of Justice

    That’s the first time I heard that phrase. I’ll think I’ll be using it.

  206. You’re of course welcome to use that phrase, but you have to pay a license fee of $5 each time, or $0.01 for each hit on a blog post that uses it, whichever is greater.

    Of course, I’m pretty sure I swiped that from Ace.

  207. I haven’t read the whole thread – is BiW argueing with someone, or the voices in his head? And this just a day or two after he got that Nobel Peace prize for a short poat.

  208. City of Angels is worth adding to your list, Chief.

  209. You’re of course welcome to use that phrase, but you have to pay a license fee

    Unh, I’d like to return this phrase. Here is my receipt. I never used it – see, its still in its original wrapper.

  210. Sure, AD.

    Just pay the $5 restocking fee.

  211. Bill me. Here is my address:

    Agile Dog
    c/o Douglas Shulman
    P.O. Box 804522
    Cincinnati OH 45280-4522

  212. OK, now I’m mildly curious as to who Douglas Shulman is.

  213. Found him yet?

    Car in might recognize the address, as would almost any accountant.

  214. xBrad – Ace stole it from me.

  215. Sure, MCPO. Sure.

    AD, I said I was mildly curious, not that I would expend a single calorie trying to find out.

  216. Bingo: http://blog.usni.org/?p=4926

  217. Well, I’m calling it. Later.

  218. […] https://thehostages.wordpress.com/2009/11/12/sweet-new-video-game/ Posted in Commentary | Leave a Comment […]

  219. Andy – great article

  220. Andy, USNI blog often has some good discussions, but the first rule is this:

    Don’t bother reading any comments by Rick Wilmes or by Campbell.

  221. Andy, was that you commenting there as Andy (JADAA)?

  222. commissioner of the IRS. That address is one of the big processing centers, IIIRC

  223. Ah. See, why should I look it up? One of you morons was bound to tell me.

  224. **tears up bill for $5 fee to Mr. Shulman**

  225. **sets Tazer to “audit”**

    Eddie, c’mere a minute. Wanna talk to you.

  226. “Ah Know Mah Rights!”

  227. You have the right to remain unconscious after I taze you.

  228. I’ve been audited by the IRS.

  229. And apparently killed this poat, too.

  230. http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/tampa-man-calls-911-asks-for-sex-gets-jail-instead/1051255

    naw, this is what is going on

  231. Sorry Romy, I was watching Buffy.

    I got a little wrapped up in it.

  232. Just a taste for you, Romy.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Pnv6pjPBw8

  233. Cool, thanks, XBrad.

  234. It’s the least I can do.

    And that’s pretty much my style, get by with the least I can.

  235. Okay, time to crash. Y’all have a good night and sweet dreams.

  236. night

    I am outta here as well

  237. **pulls off pants**

    **rubs asscheeks all over poat**

  238. *checks in on poat*

    *smells something nasty*

    *backs away slowly*

  239. If it smelled that nasty, why back away slowly? Why not run like hell?

  240. I’m back.

    Let the fun re-begin.

  241. New TOTALLY RACIST poat!!!
