I was looking at my post totals and noticed I had never done more than nine in any one month and low and behold, I had nine again this month.  I thought about it as it is approaching midnight here,  and I really wanted to break my record,  so here it is.  In honor of all the shameless, rotten, unethical and evil Sh*t this administration and the loons like Barfney Frankfurter have pulled on this country with their arrogant SHAMELESS behavior and actions, I have opted to be shameless as well and put myself above my fellow citizens and just write this POS post with the sole goal of breaking the aforementioned, cheap-ass record of mine. 
Thank you all and I am sorry for being this weak.


Time is Running Out
The good news is, it is another month closer to the election of 2012.  The bad news is there are still 13 months left to the occupation.  It is fast becoming a race of whether we will be able to make it, or whether our nation will collapse under the weight of the destructive politicians trying to run us into the ground.  
It is very much like the scene in the movies where the guy is leaning out the window at the top of a skyscraper and is holding on to the other guy with one hand.  What we see in this scene is the grip slowing slipping away and we reach a point where the man falls to his death or a hero is able to somehow pull him up to safety.  In the same way, we are seeing this analogy play out right before our eyes.  Our country is dangling out the window, trying to hold on before the guys in charge lose their grip.  
At the moment, it's a 50-50 proposition as to whether we can hold on long enough to find someone to pull us to safety.  One thing seems pretty obvious, the guy in charge right now, doesn't have a very strong grip.  What's not so obvious is whether there is someone out there who can jump in and pull us up or not.  It's going to be a question as to whether or not we can wait it out.  We just may run out of time.  If somebody doesn't replace the guy who's grip is slipping, and he get to stay around too much longer, then we are surely doomed.

As I'm sitting here pondering my plans for Thanksgiving later today, I can't help but think of holidays past and the people who made them special as I was growing up.  Like many of you I'm sure, we didn't have great wealth but, the holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas were always special.  They were filled with food, family and fun.  We weren't rich but, we never thought about it, or for that matter even realized it.  None of us kids cared or worried about that sort of stuff.  We just got to eat and play.  It was great and I wouldn't trade it for anything.  As I reflect today,  I think of myself as a kid and all  the things I got to do.  I remember how important my friends and relatives were to me in those days, and I think of how sad it was that as we got older, we drifted apart.  Many are gone but, the great memories of those days still linger. I think about it a lot more now and I like to pause and reflect, as I play the mental movies over and over in my mind.  I had a great many people who influenced me in many ways. There were teachers, movie stars, writers etc.  I wish I remembered the details a bit more clearly though but,  what I try to do now at every opportunity, is talk to some of those folks  and see what they remember about certain events, people or places.
The interesting thing I am finding out as I reminisce is how each of us remembers things differently.  It's amazing how one of us remembers something as a big deal but, the other doesn't remember it at all.  What I thought was important is not recalled at all by a cousin or a former elementary classmate.  Funny how that is.  We all see different things differently and we all see the same things differently.  Pretty crazy huh?
One thing that popped in my head for some reason today is an article I read in our local newspaper 40 years ago and it really struck me back then and still does today.  In fact I even have a copy in an old scrapbook I kept.  I've taken a lot of lessons from this short article.  Things like, don't sweat the small stuff, or things could always be worse, or even appreciate what you have because it can go away really quickly. The article was written by a man many consider to be the greatest sports writer of all time, Jim Murray.
Murray was a writer for the LA Times and died in 1998 but, had lost his vision many years earlier.

Pretend for just a moment that the American Media was actually independent and objective.  Quite a fantasy, I know.  But, just think of it, the media reporting the truth all the time, 24/7.  What a better place this would be.  Imagine an America where the opinions of those in the media were labeled as such, kept on the Editorial Page and not interspersed in the middle of news stories in order to create an outcome of some kind.  I've forgotten what that is like. 
There are so many in the media that seek to create an outcome by what they report as a news story, how they report it, or when and if they report it.  If it serves their purpose, facts are included or left out.  They may be embellished or downplayed, depending on their value in making us, "see things the way the reporter wants us to." 
Some in the media report events as fact, even before they are corroborated.  Many reporters do little if any research and are selective in what is left out of a report and what is included.  They have become master manipulators of public opinion, and many outlets have become nothing more than  arms of one political party or the other.  It appears that in many cases reporters have an agenda, and as a result, use their positions to promote that agenda.  
It is very easy to get away with most of these indiscretions when you have a large segment of the population who is not interested in following events or having opinions of their own.  They are content to simply parrot what they hear on a network newscast or read in a slanted newspaper.   America's media wasn't always like this, in fact, once upon a time, they were the guardians of freedom.  No more!  Their demise has been a long, slow and arduous one and it appears the last gasp of objectivity is about to be expelled.    RIP

 Everybody is guilty as soon as they are accused.
 I will wreck my destruction under the guise of comedy.
 Every woman is a victim regardless of the facts.
You are guilty until proven innocent no matter what I may say.

Now if you look at these pictures and think of harpies I can't stop you.
If you have an uncontrollable need to yell "BITCH"  I can't stop you.
If you are throwing up right now, sorry I can't help you.
If you are beginning to cut your wrists, sorry, nothing I can do for you.

If you are a sane, sensible person and pay attention to what's going on in this country then, you know what these faces represent.   If you are having a rush of negative thoughts right now I can sympathize with you. 
If you are getting up to put out the trash right now you are channeling me and that is scary.


Almost daily I find myself developing such a negative impression about what is going on in this country that I'm becoming more and more convinced that things around  here are becoming hopeless. When I say hopeless I don't mean a little hopeless, I mean End of the Roman Empire hopeless.   Every day as I read the stories, newspapers, watch the TV news and listen to the radio talk shows, I get a stronger feeling of this hopelessness in our nation's ability to overcome all (or even some) of  that which is before us.
From the Solyandra Scandal, the OWS protests, Congressional insider trading scandal,  the multifaceted Obamacare debacle, the Penn State mess, the insanity of allowing illegal immigration, mandated diversity and political correctness, Welfare and Social Security corruption, the Economic collapse and everything else in between
It's getting next to impossible to have any faith that problems can be solved.  What are the options?  There really aren't many, other than to wage this fight we are in, perpetually. A never ending struggle carried out on a treadmill. .  It seems to me that our only option is to win.  To set this nation straight and get it back on track but, I'm more convinced then ever that that will never happen.   Of course losing is not an option but, neither is the ongoing draw we seem to have.  In my estimation a draw is a loss for our side. We can't have sanity winning half the time and be happy about it.  The other side does not face this dilemma.  They are much happier with the status quo then we could ever be.  How can we hope to resolve problems arithmetically when they seem to be growing exponentially?
  Is there any hope of getting America back to what it was?  Back to all the things that made this nation great?  In my mind, it's not likely.  Any hope you can provide is appreciated.

Today is an important day in America.  It is a day to honor and recognize the sacrifices of the many Veterans who have served this country here at home and all over the world. 
It is a day that unfortunately, doesn't get the recognition it should from enough of the American people.  Like so many of our holidays it has become another day to focus on sales and shopping instead of observing the efforts of so many of our brave soldiers.   Far too many of our schools are no longer teaching the history of the day.  If you have children or grandchildren the onus of teaching them this important stuff will fall on you.  Please pause and reflect then thank a vet.  God Bless America and our Vets.


*****Here is an old one making the email rounds again.  I wish I knew who to credit for this but, I think it really sums up the sad state of affairs in this country.  
Please note that I normally never cut and paste a whole blog post like this but, I just felt it was too good to pass up.  ENJOY!!!

This is what we've become. Do you really think we're better off today ??

Stay Focused My Friend
I learned a lot today about what is truly important in my world and I owe it all to the media.   Yes, TV, Radio and my Local Newspaper have helped focus me on the major items that require my undivided attention and concern.
Now,  I already know there are a couple of major wars going on, radiation is spreading in Japan, Israel is getting ready to attack Iran and WW III might start as a result, our economy is collapsing, Chinese influence is spreading across the world, the whole town of Joplin Mo., was wiped out a few months back,  and a comet is heading directly for us but, enough about all this insignificant nonsense.  I've read the paper and watched the news on TV today so I'm ready to focus and really worry about the things that matter.  You should probably do the same, so let me share some of what the media helped me focus on today.

1.  Did you know that Kim Kardashian is getting a divorce after only 72 days of marriage?  Did you know that gay people are really mad at her?  Yep, they're mad because they say she is allowed to get married and blew it, while they still can't.  Now I know this is mucho importanto because they had Mr. Zulu himself on saying so.   I think I was able to see this breaking news four or five times today as I surfed the TV channels.

2.  There is a little white baby missing in one of the states in the Midwest somewhere I think. It's a very sad thing but, now I realize there are kidnappers on almost every street in our country.  You should probably have a chip implanted in your kid, they said.  Pretty good advice I think.  And maybe your dog too, in case he runs away or somebody steals him.

3.  Nancy Grace is still on Dancing with the Stars.  This must really be important because it was on all the major networks morning shows AND in my local paper. I'm really hoping she wins so 60 Minutes will do an hour on her down the road.

4.  The police had to go into a house in Pittsburgh and take out 20 cats.  Yep, all over the local news.  I really worry that all those cats are OK.

5.  The Obamas gave out Halloween Treats the other day.  Not sure what it was exactly because one network says it was fruit, another said candy.  So I'm not sure exactly.

6.  Michael Jackson's doctor is in a lot of trouble.  He was putting Michael to sleep with some heavy drug.  There were a lot of big attorneys and their guests talking about it all day.  You can even watch it on TV, live if you want to.

7.  Some women are mad at Herman Cain for being sexually suggestive with them nearly 20 years ago.   I hear they want to come out and tell their story.  Funny that it didn't matter before but, now it does.

8.  Some blond actress named Lindsay Lohan is in a lot of trouble and should be in jail. But, since it's in California they don't have any room so they keep leaving her off the hook.  They said she has problems with addiction so she will probably die soon like Amy Winehouse.  Too bad. 

Hopefully, these examples will help you to get your focus on what's important in America today just like I did.  Now get busy and start worrying about the right stuff Dammit!

A Right to Everything

I came upon this little tidbit from Daniel Mitchell's Blog regarding FDR and his desire for a 2nd Bill of Rights.  This was something I had not been aware of and I must say  I was a bit disappointed to see what he thought those rights should be. Come to think of it, I can't recall any of his speeches where he talked about working hard and earning what you have.  The ones I've heard seem to talk about giving stuff to people. I think it's the Robin Hood Syndrome 1940's Version.  When you watch these old clips you start to realize where the Democratic Party's ideas about big government come from.  No wonder so many of the Kool-Aid drinkers think they are entitled to "something for nothing."  This is the mantra of the OWS useful idiots.  Go figure!
