Ran across this at Human Events and wanted to have it marked so if/when I cruise by here again I'll run into it.

Want to know what the Founder's thoughts were on the 2nd Amendment, what is a militia, how much they trusted government? Read this:

From the Horses' Mouths: The 'Politically Correct' View of Our Founders
by Bob Heinritz

A teaser:

"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
Samuel Adams, during Massachusetts' U.S. Constitution Ratification Convention (1788).

Is It Still 2009?

Where the hell did I go?

I said I'd be gone for a few days ...18 days ago.

Had a great time in Phoenix. My friend is not a political junkie like me, so we didn't discuss much politics, and the few things I brought up, we agreed on, which made for short conversations on those subjects.

ME: "Congress is screwing this country royal!"

Friend: "Yep."

ME: "Yep. Need another beer?"

When I got home, I still had five days off and I was in a good mood, so I avoided the news and just skimmed blogs for the next week.

Back to work was night shift...long, boring and cold, then 4 days off and the depression of being alone for Thanksgiving set in. My Mom and brother in Oregon, the wife in Montana and my boy in Korea. There was something good to lift my spirit, my neighbor made me a nice pumpkin pie, which I scarfed in one sitting. (Thank you Alexa!!)

Chris did actually call me on Thanksgiving, the first time I've heard his voice since he left, but I was paranoid of how much it cost him to call, so I kind of cut him short. He wants to come home for a friends wedding in May, and even though I'll probably only get to see him a few hours, I want him to have the cash to make the trip.

I'm getting no joy from football (again) this year. My Raiders...suck,, any team I decided to root for, just to pick a side, they choose that game to play their worst.

This imbecility out of (surprise) Joy Behar,s mouth got me wound up:

While Whoopi was funny, I couldn't believe that none of them (at least in this clip, and NO! I don't watch The View) really didn't understand that this weekend, the "start" of the Christmas shopping insanity, is the point where stores start to make their profit...going from Red ink (loss) to black ink (profit).

The fact that Behar didn't know what it meant and "ASSUMED" it had some deep racial connotation to it just shows this woman knows nothing about bookkeeping or economics.

Damn near 11 months of running a store and you only make profit on that last month of the year. Working around the Christmas holiday and having to open up your business at 4AM to draw in that extra sale to make the rest of the year worth while.

I just wish the damn liberals could grasp the fact that "Black" can mean something other than a racial pejorative. Most of the time "black" is just a color.

Like You'd Notice

Going to be gone a few days.

I'm bouncing around the house trying to pick up, clean up and pack up so I can get away from here for a few days. My neighbors are going to throw some food at the animals while I'm gone, so as of Thursday morning, I'm outta here!

Four days in Phoenix with some friends that I neglect way too much. Steve is one of my few really close friends, he dates from my attempt at an education at ASU and his lovely...saintly wife, who was is college sweetheart, knows what happens when we get together and try to prove we are still the same as we were (OMG!!!)30 years ago. Of course she knows Steve and I aren't in our 20's anymore and while we brag about all the beer we are going to down...the spirit is willing but our bodies just ain't going to cooperate. Two guys asleep on the couch watching a movie with a PILE of 4 or 5 beer cans (on coasters) strewn before them. (Yeah, laugh it up Pam)

It's just a trip to get out of L.A., but i can ignore politics and responsibility for four days, hell I don't even have to rush home. I don't go back to work until Friday night.

On The Fort Hood Shootings

I have been watching the coverage of the murders that occurred at Ft. Hood for a few days and getting increasingly outraged at the spin the press has been trying to put on this!

First thing was Obo's incredible insensitivity to what occurred. His first statement where what had happened came at a time that interrupted a speech about what a good time they all had at the White House Tribal Nations Conference. (Oh, and Obo-wan, he received the Medal of Freedom..not the Medal of Honor...and you gave it to him just two months ago you dumb fuck!!)

Obo is going to give his condolences and comfort the grieving Tuesday, after he has a few days rest at Camp David from campaigning being President. I guess his schedule is really full and the biggest attack on the U.S. since 9/11 just happened at a bad time.

Now as far as Major Jihadi, there are so many things about this POS, blood is shooting out of my eyes!

First,the Army knew this guy had problems and either ignored them or feared some perceived backlash for calling an anti-American terrorist bastard out on his statements justifying the killing of Americans because he had Palestinian heritage and worshiped a pedophile prophet (racial profiling).

He was using his authority as a doctor to try to convert people to Islam and was reprimanded for it.

They keep referring to him as the "ALLEGED" killer (or gunman, or perpetrator)...The SOB was taken down with the gun in his hand shooting at the cops!!!! He was the only one around, outside of law enforcement, with a gun in his hand! We now have to wait for ballistics, let him sue if it's wrong.

His cousin was going on about how he was being "picked on" about his religion, but I really have to wonder if it wasn't a case of Captain Jihad spouting off about the rights of suicide bombers to "fellow" soldiers and their reaction to someone telling you that you're the one who caused the problem and deserve to die. Kinda like the atheist bringing up how he feels that "piss Christ" is a legitimate piece of art to someone he knows is a Christian and being shocked that they vehemently found it offensive.

While this POS has received (what will be remembered as) the finest medical care in the world, when they get him patched up, just put his ass in with his buddies at Gitmo...or Minnesota...or wherever they're going to water board the bastards next year.

Although he hates this country because they are oppressing "his people/religion", he is more that happy to be in the Army and have them pay for his schooling and give him a salary, when asked to fulfill his contract and do what he was trained for, he decides he really didn't think that doing the job they hired and trained him for was ever going to be necessary.

Sum'bitch!!! It's the same as "Conscientious Objectors" that enlist, use up resources, then say they didn't understand that they might have to deal with putting their butt on the line and protecting the country that gave them the education and/or training for their job. (I'll just leave now and use those taxpayer dollars to further my career).

Anyone who pulls that shit should have their degrees or certification revoked, let them start over on their own dime (future gov't financial aid for education is also forbidden).

Finally, I really want to point out that this pond scum is responsible for the deaths of 14, not 13!!! Francheska Velez, who had just got back to the U.S. from Iraq three days before and was pregnant was killed...along with her child.

Latest News From The Front

Chris just got back from a week long field exercise and posted a pic on his Facebook page and I'd like to pass it on.

Damn! He's still tall and thin (not really skinny anymore), but the size of his arms are amazing.

Any women dropping by, he's conservative and single. LOL

I Now Officially HATE This Effing State!!!

I kinda went into hibernation this last week. Five busy 12 hour shifts in a row just about did me in. I actually slept for 20 hours straight after the final (and hardest)shift.

Yesterday when I finally felt up to checking some news, this is what I run into:

California Outright Steals Worker's Money

LA Times:

Reporting from Los Angeles and Sacramento - Starting Sunday, cash-strapped California will dig deeper into the pocketbooks of wage earners -- holding back 10% more than it already does in state income taxes just as the biggest shopping season of the year kicks into gear.

Technically, it's not a tax increase, even though it may feel like one when your next paycheck arrives. As part of a bundle of budget patches adopted in the summer, the state is taking more money now in withholding, even though workers' annual tax bills won't change.

Think of it as a forced, interest-free loan: You'll be repaid any extra withholding in April. Those who would receive a refund anyway will receive a larger one, and those who owe taxes will owe less.

These SOB's are "borrowing" my money INTEREST FREE to supposedly dig themselves out of the hole they put us in. They won't cut anything, but just keep on spending...probably adding more spending on top, and next April when I file for my refund...they'll still be broke.

I will come close to actually breaking even being whoever calculated the Kalifornia Tax Table for withholding must have graduated from a UC skool, I've always had a little extra State withholding taken out once I realized I was paying about $300 every April. I just have to cancel that extra withholding and the numbers should work out about right.
