Right and Duty

If figures quoted by Homeland Security are correct and TSA has failed to find dangerous materials 60% to 90% of the time when tested by Red Teams then they are doing only slightly better for airline safety than the Energy department is doing for energy independence which is zero percent. Perhaps it would have been cheaper and more effective to issue pistols to all adult boarding passengers and reclaim them at the end of the flight allowing the passengers to provide for their own safety which is their right and duty.

American Evolution

In nine short months, I have seen the mood in America evolve from mild annoyance with government, to incredulity, to distrust, to anger, to major acrimony. The government meddles while the electorate smolders lacking only the right spark to burst into full fledged screaming, hair-on-fire-rope-tree fury. Congress and the administration blindly dabble in Socialism and meddle in areas not constitutionally in their purview at their own peril I think. Will the fatal spark be cap and trade or health care or corruption?

War of Attrition

Do not be fooled. We are engaged in a war of attrition with the government. Every other day some new administration or congressional scheme is broadcast with the intent to cause a disturbance among and elicit a response from the people, the purpose of which is to wear us down and destroy our will to fight for our liberty and our way of life under the Constitution. Whether the Constitution and our freedom will triumph is entirely up to us. Let us not grow weary, but redouble our resolution to remain steadfast in defense of that which keeps us free and this nation great. Vote for the Constitution of the United States in 2010.

One Term Agenda

This administration is not worried about being a "one term" administration. They think they can get their agenda done in one. Look how far it has come in less than a year.

I have an endless "honey-do" list from which I select items to accomplish whenever the mood strikes me, however, the older I get, the less accurate I find mood has become.

We are rapidly approaching the tipping point where those who depend on the government for survival will be the majority. The number now is over 40%. At that point working for a living becomes unprofitable and the administration that promises the most, whether it delivers or not, will become a ruling oligarchy.

Best Trained Dogs

I have the best trained dogs in the entire world. They can teach me to do anything they want, anytime they want, even though I am admittedly a slow learner.

Dipstick of the Decade

I am nominating President Obama for the Dipstick of the Decade Award for his vapid military decisiveness, his unbelievable legislative acumen, his unparalled support of his extended family, his derogate negotiating skills, his tenuous dedication to his oath of office and the Constitution of the United States and, most of all, for his ethereal commitment to the people, legislative visibility, truth, justice and the American way. If the Norwegians can make the weighty determination to include him on the list for the Nobel Peace Prize after 8 days in office, I feel completely confident nominating him for this prestigious award after a full 10 months observation of his on-the-job-training.

Far too many Americans have their heads in the sand when it comes to the direction this nation is being dragged kicking and screaming by the administration. A word of warning to those people. When your head is in the sand, your butt is exposed to whoever or whatever individual, group or nation decides to do to it.

Nobel Peace Prize

The selection for 2009 was not surprising. Neither peace nor accomplishments toward the same have been standards for selection for some time. Those most worthy of the award are rarely chosen. The Nobel Peace Prize has become the Nobel Political Prize.

Waking Up

I worry about people who wake up early all wide awake and bouncy. Waking up should be done carefully over an undisturbed period of about an hour and finished off with a cup of coffee during 30 additional minutes of reconnecting the synapses of the brain. Failure to wake up properly usually results in putting on underwear backwards and confusion attempting to put both legs into one half of a pair of pants.
