The party of rants, violence and lies.....

A gunshot shattered a glass door Wednesday at a Salisbury office of the Maryland Republican Party, according to a party statement.

The party published the statement on its website, indicating that a single gunshot shattered the front door at the office early in the morning.

Salisbury police officers discovered the shattered glass after midnight and reported that the office had been vandalized.

The statement indicated that a party staffer found a bullet in the office.

If you have any information regarding this continuing investigation, contact Salisbury police by dialing 410-548-3165.

In these days it is entirely possible that someone from that office, or a friend, fired a shot to get a little notice for the GOP.

Even so, the person responsible needs a little jail time.

I am willing to believe a frustrated Demi could no longer restrain it's self. This would not be the first violent attack by the pacifist party. Stand by for more demonstration of unhinged politics.

Obama is working under the table again.....

Ashley Carson, executive director of the Older Women's League, wrote in a blog post in April that Simpson is targeting Social Security to fix the deficit even though it "doesn't contribute" to the country's debt problem. She also accused Simpson of "disgusting ageism and sexism" in characterizing those who oppose cuts to benefits as "Gray Panthers" and "Pink Panthers."

In his email to Carson, which was sent Monday night, Simpson said he is defending Social Security, not trying to undermine it, and referred her to information showing the program's long-range shortfalls.

He went on: "I've made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know 'em too. It's the same with any system in America. We've reached a point now where it's like a milk cow with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!"

OK, Dude, I've been doing honest work for forty four years, and you were a politician! What did you pay in?

OH, wait! Congress has made a tradition of "borrowing" (yes, those are sneer quotes) from the Social Security Fund, virtually since it's inception, and filling the coffers with worthless IOU's. Now the IOU's are about to come due, and you don't want to pay up! When I finally reach my retirement age, that continues to rise, I will have worked and paid into the system for fifty three years. Does that offend you that I expect some benefit that Congress has promised me for that entire time?

Do you think reducing the manpower of the federal government by laying off Social Security will reduce the deficit? Could it be that repaying the debt to those who paid for your schemes will cause a rise in the National Debt?

Will any borrow and spend politician, please, explain to me how spending a borrowed dollar in some trickle down scam, can ever be recovered in it's entirety? With interest? Can't happen.

Obama routinely places the most divisive people available in positions that will cause trouble. In this case he has recruited at least one person who would curtail our ability to recover what we have already paid in to the government. I would actually be satisfied with that amount that was deducted from my pay checks, the money that I worked for, but I will never see it.

Now you want to criticize some one who lobbies for the elderly, does that make me your problem?

Yes, Dude, I AM part of your problem.

Royalty....or so they think

The president has spent the day watching DVDs and playing the board game Taboo at Blue Heron Farm, the spacious $20 million estate the First Family rented, at a cost of somewhere between $35,000 and $50,000 a week. Sitting on 28.5 acres in the Chilmark section of the island, the farm has its own private section of Squibnocket beach, four living residences including a white Victorian farm house, a gym, a swimming pool, an outdoor basketball half-court, and a putting green. From the drudge report.

Hard times, not for the first family.

I guess we should all scrimp a little so Barry and Mo can have a little time off. The First Muslims are too stressed to attend to the nations business for more than a few days before going away to unwind.

What happened to Camp David? Not good enough?

It almost makes me wish for Jimeah Cahtah back. Not quite, but he did use Camp David to keep Yasser Arafat off the streets for a while.

The excesses of this troop of would be rulers just floors me. I am seeing notes in the news that some are beginning to see that Barry doesn't intend to run again, that perhaps his attempt to destroy America is only a resume line for his speaking tour after leaving office.

It's almost unthinkable that the president of this nation would attempt to reduce us to a banana republic, then use the high office he has held to profit from the destruction. But, Hey, he's a Democrat, it's OK.

I could just cry....

I was day dreaming on Auto Trader, looking at Aston Martin's.

Some poor dude is selling a $160K, 2003 DB7 with 50,000 miles, for $60K ,,,,,

because his wife wants "something new".

What the dude needs to do is buy her a Hundai.

A comment from an article found on the Drudge report

nataya wrote:
The costs to the American taxpayers of Michelle Obama's trip to Spain are being understated.

In addition to the Air Force Two airliner that took Michelle and her daughter to Spain, there are numerous other aircraft that accompany the First Lady when she travels any distance from home base: there are the escort aircraft (fighter planes), there is at least one C-47 that must cart the bullet-proof limousines for the First Lady and her guests and the special cars used by the Secret Service, and there is a cargo plane to take the jet fuel over to Spain for the return trip back to The States. (we do NOT buy local jet fuel for the president or First Lady when they travel abroad). We also have to pay a per diem -- $273-a-day federal per diem for five days -- for each of the 70 Secret Service agents who must accompany a First Lady when she travels; that per diem is in addition to the lodging and food expenses (paid by the taxpayers) for the 70 Secret Service agents traveling with Michelle.

The costs to the American taxpayers for Mrs. Obama's "private" jaunt are stupendous and outrageous.

Was there NO place within the United States that Mrs. Obama would find interesting or worth visiting?

She COULD be touting America as a tourist destination; instead she is making a clear statement that there is nothing worth seeing in the United States.

She COULD have been spending American dollars to boost the American economy; instead, she boosted the Spanish economy. Gee, thanks, Michelle.

We have been LECTURED by President Obama about the need of EVERYONE to sacrifice during these stressful economic times. I guess Michelle Antoinette didn't get the memo. She is living higher off the hog than she ever dreamed possible.

My hope is that after the 2012 election, Mr. and Mrs. Obama will be free to travel anywhere they want to as PRIVATE citizens paying their own way.

Royalty needs not explain, all us little people need to suck it up and defer to them.

I have a couple of questions.....

The Obamassiah exhibits some odd behaviors for a politician. Perhaps he is above giving, at least, lip service to the will of the people. Perhaps he is blind to the consequences of being an idiot. Perhaps he just doesn't care.

The last part is what concerns me. A politician that doesn't care about the next vote has a plan.

The great one disregards the media, cracks on some of the reporters, and disrespects a Senator that spent more time in a POW camp that Barry has in the Senate. Poor PR if nothing else. His arrogance is on display daily.

Note to Barry: Arrogance does not sit well with "we the people".

He has championed a health care plan that will bankrupt many households, and disguised it as less expensive than what is available now. Many believe it is socialized medicine. I made that mistake as well. It is actually government controlled insurance that we will have to pay through the nose for. It will eventually, probably, expand to be come the very industry it demonizes.


For the money. If costs to the consumer go up, and the cost as well as the availability, of those services are regulated at a lower rate, remember insurance and doctors are ripping us off, who gets the difference?
The premise that the government will take in money is directly opposed to the projected cost of the bill. That is the excuse for the tax increase that comes with the bill and the taxes that will follow.

Barry has espoused "bailouts" of banks and automakers from the pockets of taxpayers. Would the collapse of banks and employers have triggered a depression?

We will eventually find out.

What is certain is the interest on the debt this nation has incurred is about one third of the gross national product. I am told when the interest on the debt exceeds the GNP our money is worthless, because the government that backs the currency is insolvent. Actually it's worse than that. If 100% of our income is owed to taxes to cover the debt, how do we live? If 100% of our taxes are owed to intrest, how does the government keep it's promises and obligations to the people?

He is in favor of "immigration reform". The expression is a euphemism for an amnesty for people who have committed various crimes by coming to this country or staying too long. That doesn't make them bad people, but lawbreakers. They also work, they take jobs that might be available to the 9% of citizens that need them. There are many degreed engineers who would gladly mow your yard or clean your house to put food on the table.

Well, not gladly, willingly.

Why do we want to give citizenship or work visas to foreign nationals when our natives are out of work. I wish I could find the article that put immigration at 100K a month, that would be 1.2 million a year. Who would be the hero if, perhaps, one third of that number of jobs were created. I'm pretty sure the Oval office would have some self congratulatory statement on the subject.
He has reached the pinnacle of ambition for a community organizer, where else could he go? Is one term enough to satisfy an ego large enough to have it's own gravity well?

I think not.

Mister Hussein Obama has a very interesting resume. If you brush past the education, lack of a certificate of live birth, voting "present" on almost every bill before him, and a complete lack of performance in the Senate, you will find that he worked for an organization run by sixty's radicals who sought the violent overthrow of our government. You will also find that he attended a church pastored by a racist who hates America. If you have ever associated with those sorts, you will know that they will not tolerate a dissenting opinion in their presence. Additionally most people go to church to worship and learn how to live from their Pastor, not just for appearances.

It might be for appearances, which would be slightly better, but then which is disingenuous?

Barry is a mole.

Indoctrinated by the radicals in ACORN, coached and sponsored by those well versed in politics, and presented as a candidate to change the face of the nation.

They got that part right.

This nation would be very hard to dispose of from the outside, however it could be done by economic means from within. The Democrats have been trying that for years. The greatest changes come from within. A nation torn apart by joblessness and a divisive leader, toss in racist sentiment, will not emerge the same.

Barrack Hussein Obama does not act like he wants to run for office again.

Is that because he can't win, or because he doesn't plan to allow another election?

Those are the questions.

As was stated before, this is the greatest nation on earth, he wants to change it.

Don't you remember?

Way back in 2008 the soon to be first lady made the statement that the pie is only so big, and some will have to take a smaller piece, so others will be able to get more.

Now we know who the "others" are.

That would be "she who must be obeyed" and forty or so close friends and family. That would not include the nearly seventy security folks. This was a "mother and daughter trip" per a White House spokes person.

Thank God it wasn't a family outing.

$375K, per the Drudge report. Somebody got themselves one humongous piece of pie.

Everyone I know is tightening their belt, and the White House staff is on over time planning trips for the first spouse. Eight this summer, or so reports say.

The next extravagance is the designer coat, from the UK, whass'amatter Mo-chelle, US designers not good enough for you?

The sense of entitlement is staggering.

Just so you know...

If you mix Whipped Cream flavored vodka with an orange soda, it tastes like a creamsicle that will punch you in the head.

Update on the work break

This has been a busy summer, very interesting, like the Chinese curse.

TLOML had a lumpectomy the day before I had to leave for work. If I live to be a thousand I will never do anything harder. Still the bills have to be paid. They were substantial, all covered now. God be praised, the mass was benign. Laser treatments (???) and medication and things are better.

We have done some kitchen up grades, and a major cleanup in the garage. If you think that was a minor thing, then you haven't seen my work bench.

We took a weeks vacation in Mexico, pictures below. We climbed some pyramids, swam in underground rivers, rode ATVs in the jungle and walked on the bottom of an inlet in hard hat dive equipment. We enjoyed some local foods, liquors, and entertainment.

The clan will have a new member in September, courtesy of my stepson and his love. She is the sweetheart he has been waiting for, or if he screws it up, he's an idiot.

One of my son-in-laws is changing jobs, so his soon to be ex-coworkers gave him a farewell party that left him at his door step at four in the morning, in his socks and boxers, falling down drunk, covered in ranch dressing and deli meats. ( WTH???) I don't think I will ever party like that.

An apology to myself and any reader lingering out there

These days I'm living my life in a blender, on puree. You might imagine the blur of the world passing as you peer out from your own Daiquiri.

I admit to a little sense of helplessness, as I watch the highest elected official in the land dismantle our nation.

Because of this, I have recently just shook my head and wondered how any one can still believe this amateur can remain in office.

I will start again to voice my opinion on these pages as an outlet for my frustration.

I should have been doing so all along.

If you were not terrified of government before.....

Now would be a good time to start.

From Congress a chart of the health care bill. If you can make anything of this you are way smarter than me.

Except for the massive increase in taxes and government intrusion into your life.
