Liberals and Their Guns

In a fit of common sense, the Republicans are attempting to lift the gun ban on Washington DC

It is one of the benefits of being a politician. While handguns are banned for citizens in Washington, D.C., congressmen are allowed to have a gun for self-protection on the Capitol grounds. Well-known liberal politicians such as Senators Chuck Schumer and Ted Kennedy have armed bodyguards. The wives of politicians, such as Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle's wife, Linda, also have bodyguards. Undoubtedly, these politicians and their families have extremely good reasons for this protection, but many other Americans, especially those living with the high crime rates in D.C., also feel the same way.

Later today, the U.S. House of Representatives will finally vote on whether to overturn D.C.'s handgun ban

I agree that people should be allowed to carry weapons for defense. I occasionally carry one, and have that right afforded to me by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a Shall Issue state.

But I disagree that Congress should be making the decision. It would be just as bad or worse if Congress tried to make Pennsylvania ban guns. As a soverign territory or state, that governing body should be able to make their own decisions.

Though I applaud the effort to lift the gun ban, I disagree with how it's done.

Macho Camacho

I tried a new cigar recently, the Camacho Habano. Very tasty and full bodied. It's my new smoke, at least for now.

By the way, I want you to check out the blog of my good friend, Tiny Tim for good cigar news and reviews. He's a new blogger, and would apprecaite it.

Secret Handshakes

I know many organizations, fraternities, and clubs have "secret" handshakes. I am sure Skull and Bones is no different.

I wonder when George Bush and John Kerry shake hands before their debate if they will shake hands in the ancient and secret way of Skull and Bones?

We'll see.

Shiny Angry People

One of my favorite Billy Joel songs is Angry Young Man. It reminds of of the state of the modern liberal

In the 1998-2002 GSS [General Social Survey], extreme conservatives are much more likely to report being "very happy" than extreme liberals--47.1% to 31.6%. Earlier years show a similar pattern.

This conservative happiness carries over into most other aspects of life as well. Conservatives usually report being happier in their jobs than liberals. In the 2002 GSS, for example 65.2% of extreme conservatives report being "very satisfied" with their jobs in general, while only 50% of extreme liberals report being very satisfied. When the question is broadened to satisfaction with job or housework, a similar pattern obtains. In the 1998-2002 GSS, 61.0% of extreme conservatives reported being very satisfied, compared to 53.6% of extreme liberals.

As to finances, in the 1998-2002 GSS 34% of extreme conservatives report being satisfied with their finances compared to 26.4% of extreme liberals. More extreme liberals (34.5%) than extreme conservatives (25.8%) report being "not at all satisfied" with their finances.

Conservatives usually tend to report less marital unhappiness than liberals.

It doesn't surprise me. When you see liberals like the hippies who protest or even

The Peanut Farmer when he goes overseas and says that our electoral process is broken, all you see is anger, and
lack of optimism.

Just take a look at this picture from The Whiskey Bar, a now defunct blog. Defunct because I guess that the liberal venom spewed by it's author finally poisoned his soul.


From what I see conservatives are more happy. We love our country, and see great promise in it.

Gas for all your needs

It appears that panic has stricken in to all those happy people who like to complain about the cost of gasoline. A barrel of oil has hit the mark of $50. Never mind the fact that we could of drilled for oil in ANWR, but gas isn't that expensive.

If you go to a store and get a small bottle of water like Aquafina, you'll probably pay 1.25 or so for a Litre!! That would make water 3.75 a gallon, slightly more than a gallon of milk which is about $3.00 a gallon.

The beer I had the other night at the local pub was 2.00 for a 12 ounce serving. That would have made beer about $20 for a gallon. And there were times I've seen the same people who bitch about $2 gas drinking 10 or more of these beers. And that is at the local bar. Never mind when you go to the city or a ballgame.

Now beer and milk come from a local source. The local dairy, or the brewery that is probably close by. Water is everwhere. If you put a bucket outside during Ivan you'll had a gallon in no time.

Now gas comes from oil that is drilled far away. It is put on tankers shipped overseas where it is refined, process, and taxed heavily. One gallon will make the average motor vehicle in America move it's 2 ton frame with you in it 55 Miles Per Hour for about 25 miles.

So people who claim that vacations will be cut short or that junior will have to due without his red rider BB gun because of the cost of gasoline to drive their car or oil for their homes should cut down on milk, bottled water, soda, and beer. Those are all more expensive than oil.

Hippies Suck

With all the talk from John Kerry about Iraq being another Vietnam, it's no wonder the hippie American hating retreads from the Vietnam war are back again, spitting and beating up American soldiers.

A local soldier back from the war in Iraq said he was beaten at an area concert because of what was printed on his T-shirt, NBC 4's Nancy Burton reported. Foster Barton, 19, of Grove City, received a Purple Heart for his military service in Iraq. He almost lost his leg last month after a Humvee he was riding in ran over a landmine.

Barton said he was injured again Friday night in a crowded parking lot as he was leaving the Toby Keith concert at Germain Amphitheatre. The soldier was injured so badly that he can't go back to Iraq as scheduled.

"I don't remember getting hit at all, really," said Barton, a member of the 1st Calvary Division. "He hit me in the back of the head. I fell and hit the ground. I was knocked unconscious and he continued to punch and kick me on the ground."

Barton and his family said he was beat up because he was wearing an Iraqi freedom T-shirt.

"It's not our fault," Barton said. "I'm just doing a job."

According to a Columbus police report, six witnesses who didn't know Barton said the person who beat him up was screaming profanities and making crude remarks about U.S. soldiers, Burton reported.

One witness, a friend of the alleged attacker, said Barton hit first. Police said they do not think that witness is credible since the six other witnesses said Barton was hit from behind.

These smelly haters of America are really starting to piss me off. I'm sick of hearing of stories of them trashing Bush signs or, in this case, beating up an American War Hero.

These are the type of people we are dealing with. These are the types who support John Kerry. They are the party of hate. They hate America, and they hate that America stands for freedom.

And to make you smile, Maddox tells what hippies are good for

What I want for Christmas

While taking my sister gun shopping at my local gun store, I fell in love with a lovely handgun. The feel of its warm rubber grips in my had was amazing. It had a comfortable feeling and was well balanced.

It is the Taurus 24/7 .45 ACP


Sweet Heh?

Also, I saw this at the Coach store. It is the Tyler Briefcase.

What can I say, I know good things when I see it.

John Kerry's Ideal Health Plan Redux

From the land of socialist healthcare, England, comes the story of a man with a nail in his finger. After going to the E.R. and waiting for 20 hours, he pays out of pocket to get his GP to do it for him.

With the nail embedded in the middle finger of his left hand Mr Milne, 54, went to the hospital's A &E department, arriving at about 2.30pm and was seen by a doctor at 3.40pm.

He said he was then sent to Ward 39 at around 5.30pm, examined and X-rayed.

He said he was then told that he would need to be operated on by a plastic surgeon who would not be able to do it until later that night.

When the doctor made his last round at about 7pm, Mr Milne claims he was told that he would not be operated on until 9am the following morning.

After spending the night in a hospital bed, he said he was seen by a consultant who told him that there would be a further delay until lunchtime. At 12.30pm, he was told that it would be a further few hours.

It seems that all the stories we hear are true about the great nationalized healthcare that John Kerry envisions. Long lines, inferior service, and all that.

The trouble with nationalized healthcare isn't so much that the government is involved, but that no one else is. When there's a lack of incentive to improve, because of a lack of free market pressures, you have crappy service.

Well if Lurch gets elected be prepared to have discussion on the merits of socialism.

Har De Har Har Har

So John Kerry was on Letterperson last night. After the Eagles beat the Vikings, and right before I drifted off into a pill induced sleep, I turned off my Dish Network box, and bam I was frightened into a full wakeful state by Lurch talking about burning our goodwill in the world or something. I turned it off because I didn't want to throw up in my bed.

But from what I heard he has some moronic top 10 list. And Here it is:
Kerry's "Top 10 Bush Tax Proposals" are:

10. No estate tax for families with at least two U.S. presidents.

9. W-2 Form is now Dubya-2 Form.

8. Under the simplified tax code, your refund check goes directly to Halliburton.

7. The reduced earned income tax credit is so unfair, it just makes me want to tear out my lustrous, finely groomed hair.

6. Attorney General (John) Ashcroft gets to write off the entire U.S. Constitution.

5. Texas Rangers can take a business loss for trading Sammy Sosa.

4. Eliminate all income taxes; just ask Teresa (Heinz Kerry) to cover the whole damn thing.

3. Cheney can claim Bush as a dependent.

2. Hundred-dollar penalty if you pronounce it "nuclear" instead of "nucular."

1. George W. Bush gets a deduction for mortgaging our entire future.

Rather Blather

Here is what the guy said

Last week, amid increasing questions about the authenticity of documents used in support of a 60 MINUTES WEDNESDAY story about President Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard, CBS News vowed to re-examine the documents in question—and their source—vigorously. And we promised that we would let the American public know what this examination turned up, whatever the outcome.

Now, after extensive additional interviews, I no longer have the confidence in these documents that would allow us to continue vouching for them journalistically. I find we have been misled on the key question of how our source for the documents came into possession of these papers. That, combined with some of the questions that have been raised in public and in the press, leads me to a point where—if I knew then what I know now—I would not have gone ahead with the story as it was aired, and I certainly would not have used the documents in question.

But we did use the documents. We made a mistake in judgment, and for that I am sorry. It was an error that was made, however, in good faith and in the spirit of trying to carry on a CBS News tradition of investigative reporting without fear or favoritism.

Please know that nothing is more important to us than people's trust in our ability and our commitment to report fairly and truthfully.

Nothing more can be said that what has already been said throughout the blogsphere. I wanted to post a copy of the text so you have a copy of it.

Just to be fair

Just to be fair to both sides, I wanted to share this with you as reported by Brit Hume on Foxnews.

Another Sticker-ey Situation

A woman in Moulton, Alabama, says she was fired last week from the Enviromate Insulation Factory for displaying a "Kerry-Edwards" sticker on her car.

Lynne Gobbell says she was told by her boss to remove the sticker, but she refused, insisting he, "couldn't tell me who to vote for." So, she tells the Decatur Daily, she was then fired.

She has spent much of the week waiting to hear if she's eligible for unemployment compensation, but no need for that now. John Kerry himself has since called her, and offered her a job with his campaign, though she says Kerry didn't offer many details about the job.

Now, I don't think she should have been fired. She should be free to put whatever sticker she wants to on her car, as long as it doesn't promote violence or things like hurting the President.

The boss was wrong to fire her. Plain and simple.

Posted by tbux at 08:55 AM | Comments (1)

And then he'll sue her too!

20040917-010916-1500.jpg At a recent campaign stop for Breck Girl, John Edwards, a man and his 3 year old daughter were phiysically manhandled by a bunch of union representatives who didn't appreciate their Bush/Cheney sign they held up.

It appears that when John Kerry lies, little girls cry.

A West Virginia man said yesterday that Democrats stole his family's Bush-Cheney campaign signs at an event featuring Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. John Edwards.     "They just pounced on us," said Phil Parlock, who took his 11-year-old son, Alex, and 3-year-old daughter, Sophia, to the Democratic rally at Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va.     Sophia became briefly famous yesterday when an Associated Press photo showing her in tears after Democrats tore her sign to pieces was posted on Matt Drudge's Web site,

That's gotta look good. Sure, Kerry will give this little girl guaranteed government healthcare, but will be sure to beat her up first. Actuallly, she is going to need that government healthcare because of the injuries she will sustain by the Union Thug supporters of John Kerry and the Breck Girl.

Also, Michelle Malkin has more examples of rabid Kerry supporters.

Dan Rather Evening News Theme Song

Sung to the tune of "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" from the Beverly Hillbillies:

Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Dan,
The documents were fake and he didn't give a damn;
He put 'em on the air, an' he thought he'd done the job,
But up from the web come a howlin' mob.

Blogs, that is. Web logs. Checkin' facts.

Well, the first thing you know ol' Dan's a-runnin' fast;
Made a false report an' it bit him in the ass;
He said 'dog-gonnit, I done thought I'd get away!'
But it turned out to be his a-reckonin' day.

Busted, that is. Red-faced. Mud in the eye.

Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Dan and all his men;
And they would like to shoot you folks for turnin' them in;

You're all invited back next week to watch the Evening News, And see which correspondent's picked to fill Dan's empty shoes.

Y'all come back, now, hear?

Blogs are the new Foxnews

Years ago, there was CNN. The alternative to network news. No one really believed that some cable news network could displace the networks. CNN never really did, but did become an important news source.

Then came MSNBC and then FoxNews. No one really thought that FoxNews could displace CNN, but they did and in fact have begun showing greater numbers than the networks.

In fact, the only people who watch the network news are people like my dad who don't have cable and really old people. As the really old people die, and my dad gets cable, they will wither away.

New to the news domain is the BLOG. In case you are totally moronic, sites like The Nap Room and even...Instapundit...are blogs.

As recently as the Democrataic National convention blogs were widely disregarded as just a bunch of losers sitting at home writing stuff.

But in the great tradition of the early days of the printing press that pushed writers like Thomas Paine and Martin Luther into the forefront, the blogsphere is coming into its own as a news source.

From Investor's Business Daily

Journalism has a new dress code. Pajamas.

The people who write blogs, short for Web logs, don't get much respect from the mainstream media. Jonathan Klein, a former senior executive at "60 Minutes," said on Fox News last week that "Bloggers have no checks and balances. . . . (It's) a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas."

But it took only a day for bloggers to show the emperor has no clothes, exposing CBS for airing a report based on possibly forged documents about President Bush's National Guard service.

Just take a look at the once outside the mainstream sites like Little Green Footballs and his post talked about by Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Bill O'Reilly, and it's easy to see that Blogs are slowly coming into their own as a news source.

File this under "We are paranoid for a reason"

Well, Michelle Malkin points to a message board for Borders Book store employees and their discussion on Unfit For Command

One thing they wrote made me chuckle.

At the expense of sounding like I'm passing judgement, conservative types seem to fall prey to these type of conspiracy theories a little too easily. Now the democrats are in league with the nations bookstores and publishers and conspire to keep dangerous books out of the hands of inquiring readers..... Come on.

What about all the "liberal types" who fall prey to every sort of conspiracy theory when it comes to George Bush. There was war for oil, plan to lower price of oil by being in bed with the Saudi royal family, and then there was the freak show that is Fahrenheit 9/11.

If you want proof that we are indeed concerned (they call it paranoid) for a reason, read this post.

You guys don't actually HAVE to sell the thing!

Just "carelessly" hide the boxes, "accidentally" drop them off pallets, "forget" to stock the ones you have, and then suggest a nice Al Franken or Micheal Moore book as a substitute. Borders wants those recommends, remember?

I don't care if these Neandertals (sic) in fancy suits get mad at me, they aren't regular customers anyway. Other than "Left Behind" books, they don't read. Anything you can do to make them feel unwelcome is only fair. They are the people pushing retailers to cut costs, don't forget. And they would censor your speech, your books, your music in a heartbeat, so give them a taste of it!

Don't get mad, get even!

These pointy headed bookstore types are a walking ironic display. They saw conservatives are paranoid because we believe that the Borders employees don't want the book sold while openly talking about hating the book and trying to avoid selling it in their discussion board.

422 Billion Deficit, plus cost of living

Just recently, despite the horrible George Bush induced budget deficit, Congress has voted to give itself a pay raise.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- With little debate, House lawmakers on Tuesday included themselves as part of a pay raise that all federal employees will receive next year.

The cost-of-living raise would be the sixth straight for members of the House and Senate, boosting the salaries of lawmakers, now $158,100, by about $4,000 in the new calendar year.

I guess deficits are bad when it is caused by wars to protect us, or tax cuts to stimulate the economy. But when deficits are partially caused by too much spending and pay raises for civil servants it's ok.

Express Lane

I smoke cigars, but my wife smokes cigarettes. Often times we realize the need for the Marlboros when we happen to be going to the local Wal Mart Supercenter. After spending hours in the store filling up our cart with food and hardlines we realize that we can't buy cigarettes in lane 17 (the only lane where cigarettes can be bought) because that is also the express lane.

So I have to make another stop to pick up cigarettes.

Fucking Wal-Mart.

Next time I have to buy cigarettes while doing our monthly big shopping trip, I'm gonna take my 200 items in the 10 item or less lane. Just to buy cigarettes.

Fuck em.

"So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time"
AlGore continues his downward slide toward total breakdown. First he grew a beard, then he gained weight, and lost it. Now he fired his barber, as evidenced by his growing coif.

This lunatic has recently referred to Bush's determination to fight terror "the same fundamentalist impulse that we see in Saudi Arabia".

Of course the loony left has been eating it up. Some dumb hick from Pittsburgh has even gone so far as, with misty eyes, to refer to him as the real President.

So he did get more total votes, but in this country we have something called the Electoral College. But I guess that would mean liberals would have to pay attention to the constitution. Or for that matter read at a more than 4th grade level.

Rather Biased?

It looks like Dan Rather's liberal bias has been displayed yet again.

CBS NEWS executives have launched an internal investigation into whether its premiere news program 60 MINUTES aired fabricated documents relating to Bush's National Guard service, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

"The reputation and integrity of the entire news division is at stake, if we are in error, it will be corrected," a top CBS source explained late Thursday.

The source, who asked not to be named, described CBSNEWS anchor and 60 MINUTES correspondent Dan Rather as being privately "shell-shocked" by the increasingly likelihood that the documents in question were fraudulent.

Rather, who anchored the segment presenting new information on the president's military service, will personally correct the record on-air, if need be, the source explained from New York.

Well it's not just Dan Rather. The whole of the network media are a bunch of biased hacks. Look at the Today show. Katie Couric coos and bats her eyelashes on her over Sun exposed and bo-toxed face at every liberal Bush hateer. Even that flamethrower Kitty Kelly is getting three segments over three days on Today, even though not a single one of the swiftvets for truth have gotten airtime on the Peacock network.

And they wonder why Foxnews is beating them at every timeslot. Just like US Airways, they will wither away.

Sky Captain and the world of Yesterday

Here was an excellent shitty use of your tax money. It appear that U.S. Airways, already a recipient of millions of dollars of our money in a federal bailout, is seeking protection from creditors again

Barring a last-minute change of heart by its recalcitrant unions, US Airways appears all but certain to seek bankruptcy protection on Sunday, people briefed on the situation said yesterday.

In that event, the airline is considering a bankruptcy filing without debtor-in-possession financing, a standard feature of most Chapter 11 cases. Instead, it would rely on cash on hand to finance its operations and would explore whether it needed additional financing in the future, these people said.

Christopher L. Chiames, the airline's senior vice president for corporate affairs, declined to say yesterday whether a bankruptcy filing, which would be the airline's second in two years, was imminent. "All along in this process, we've acknowledged that a bankruptcy filing might be necessary, but no decisions have been made," he said.

The final say is up to the US Airways board, which has not met to discuss the issue, he said. But the board can meet by telephone and could do so on short notice.

The airline sought Chapter 11 protection in August 2002, a filing that also took place on a Sunday. It emerged in April 2003, backed by a $900 million package of federal loan guarantees, the largest awarded by the Air Transportation Stabilization Board.

Now, I am usually on the side of business. But in this case I say let them go out of business. It sounds harsh, but in a free market, if they can't compete and make money, why should I bail them out?

After the September 11th attacks, it was proper for the government to assist the airlines that suffered near catastrophic economic damages. But that being said, there are many airlines that are making money and doing well.

Jet Blue and Southwest come to mind. If they can make it, offering a great service at a reasonable price, and making money too, then they should be the new standard bearer. No one cried when Woolworth died away to make way for K Mart, K Mart is sliding away making room for Wal Mart, and no one will cry when Wal Mart goes away for the next big thing.

It's how the free market works.

No Comment

It appears that there is a lesser known milestone we've reached. That is one month since John Kerry spoke to the reporters he drags across the country in his press pool.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Today marks the one-month point since Sen. John Kerry last answered questions from reporters traveling with him on the campaign trail.

The last time the Democratic presidential nominee took questions from them was Aug. 9 on the edge of the Grand Canyon, when the small traveling press pool accompanying him was allowed to ask eight questions.

And the last time Mr. Kerry held a full-fledged press conference where he faced questions from the entire corps of national reporters covering his campaign was Aug. 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. He took two questions then.

What are you trying to hide behind John? Afraid they'd ask questions on things you've said?

Johnny Ban That Gun!!

It looks like JFK flipped again. This time on a gun that
he once tried to outlaw.

At a Labor Day campaign rally yesterday, Sen. John Kerry accepted an ironic gift from a labor union representative. The gift, a Remington model 11-87 shotgun commonly used in hunting and recreational shooting enjoyed by millions of Americans, would be banned as an "assault weapon" under a bill that Kerry is co-sponsoring.

"The semi-automatic shotgun that Kerry accepted is one that he'd like to ban under his bill known as 'The Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2003 (S. 1431).' Kerry tells union workers that he's a hunter, but the truth is he would ban their shotguns," said Lawrence G. Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).


The truth is The Remington Model 11-87 is not an assault weapon. It is a commonly used hunting and sport shooting rifle. It is very similar to the gun I am holding in my picture in IMAO's Peace Gallery.

The difference between my Remington model 1100 and the 11-87 is that the 11-87 was introduced in 1987 and allows you to shoot the more powerful 3 inch cartridges where the 1100 only can shoot 2 3/4 inch cartridges.

Semi-Auto Remingtons are perhaps one of the most widely used semi-automatic shotgun. It is used for hunting and sporting clays. In fact, it is no more deadly than any other shotgun out there. Perhaps less so than others because of it's size and weight.

If you think it sucks, quit!!

Brett Hull apparently isn't having much fun playing hockey. Not only that, but those of use who love hockey are a bunch of losers in his mind. He doesn't care about us fans. So fuck him.

From a FoxSports story:

The U.S. prepares for its clash against the Russians Monday, but Hull was approached by The Post after he did not play in a 3-1 victory over Slovakia Friday.

"I couldn't care less," he reportedly said. "It's no fun playing."

The Post approached Hull Sunday, but he refused to discuss the story. When the newspaper told him fans might be interested in the story, Hull said, "I don't give a ---- about the fans anymore."

Well he is an asshole. He should quit playing hockey and work for the union assholes who, despite a declining market share for NHL are pushing for a lockout in a few days. Looks like there will be no NHL season this year.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement expires Sept. 15th. All hope for an NHL season might end with it. Three days of talks this week went nowhere and the sides are closer to a nuclear winter than a healthy labor agreement.

So I guess all I have to say is GO BEARS!!

Double Whammy

Well, last night at the Republican Convention, President Bush did a good job showing what his vision for the four years will be. In a speech from a specially constructed stage in the middle of the arena, he was trying to be “The man in the arena”.

Mr. Bush has a long list of domestic proposals. He suggested expanding strict testing standards to high school, increasing support for community colleges, simplifying the tax codes, and making the tax cuts permanent, and much more. He did a good job in explaining why government should be on our side, and not in our lives.

On the foreign policy agenda part of the speech during the second half of the speech, Bush laid out in detail why he should be President for four more years based on his execution of he war on terror. He showed historic examples of nation building and rebuilding of regions. He discussed how in 1946 the NY times said we were in a quagmire in Germany, and that Democracy could not work in Germany and Europe. We know how that turned out--comparing the opinions then to what actually happened to views now on Iraq.

Bush’s eyes welled up with tears while talking about helping grieving families of soldiers killed in Iraq. He said he never wants to send people to their deaths, but as Commander-In-Chief, it is a decision he has to make.

It was a very impressive speech, and I think he made great arguments for going to Iraq and instilling freedom and democracy in the Middle East. More importantly, he looked Presidential.

In other news, it appears that the "worst economy since Herbert Hoover" has added 144,000 new jobs in August. Unemployment is now 5.4%--lower than when Clinton was in office.

And further proof how bad it's gotten for the libs, Dick Morris is going to vote for Bush:

I voted for Gore in 2000, as a true child of the Clinton era. But I decided to vote for Bush on Sept. 12, 2001 when I saw how he handled the threat we face. I used to back Bush because he offered safety; now I support him because he summons us all to an ideal. Before he spoke, supporting Bush was a duty one owed to the fallen. Now, it is an honor.

Go(a)t Milk?

So I am getting goats. My friend G, whose car I helped repo last night has goats, and I decided with my lovely wife to get some goats too. We already picked them out. They are both Nubian-Oberhaslis mixed.

Lilly is a girl, brown with a brown stripe. Baxter is a grey and black male.

Over the last few days I've been building their home. Below is a picture of the unpainted shed.

Tom the Repo Man

I didn't get to watch the convention last night. But from what I've heard, and read, it seems that Zell did a great job making the Dems look like the wussies they are, and giving people like Chrissy Matthews a hard time.

I didn't watch the convention because I had to repo a car. And when I mean repo, I mean steal it back.

A friend of mine, G, has two PT Cruisers. A nice black one, and a red one. Some guy he knew had a problem with his truck, so G gave this guy his red PT Cruiser until the truck got fixed. This happened in May.

Well, after about a month, G wanted his car back. He called this guy, but his phone was disconnected. He went to the guy's house, and he had moved. He went to the place where he worked, but he didn't work there anymore.

Well, after about 2 months of this he went to the place where this guy tended bar a few nights a week and found the car. The guy said that he would drop it off in 2 days. Two days came and went and G still didn't get his car back.

So that brings us to last night. G calls me, and asks me to repo his car. Since I can drive a stick, I said yeah, and went out. We went to where he tended bar, and found him. The car wasn't there but the guy said the car was at his parents house about 20 minutes away. We said we would go to his parents house. He said they were sleeping. We said call them and wake them up.

Now we had the spare key to the car so at least if we found it, we could just take it. After a 20 minute drive we found his parent's house, they were not sleeping and not even in their pajamas. The car, though, was not there. And the guy didn't even call to tell them G and I were on the way.

So we drove back to the bar, and happened to look in a parking garage 2 blocks way and lo and behold, there was the PT cruiser. We got it back.

The car was scratched up, missing a mirror, and has 12,000 new miles on it. It needed gas and only had a quart of oil in it.

The guys dog pissed in the back seat, and there were about 30 dollars in parking tickets under the seat.

But he has his PT Cruiser back.

Girlie Men vote Democratic

Yesterday was a good day at the Republican National Convention. In short: The two main speakers did a good job, in different ways. Sandwiched in the middle were a bunch of giggly ditzes and the President of the United States.

In a speech last night to the delegates at the convention, Arnold did a great job putting into words why I am a Republican, and a conservative. In a speech he said the following:
If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government...then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group... then you are a Republican! If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does... then you are a Republican! If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children ... then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations is the best hope of democracy in the world ... then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen ...if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism ... then you are a Republican!

He said that just about as well as anyone could say it. I have no doubt that Arnold is a proud American. He loves this country because it gave him the ability to become something. He said in the speech that people from all over the world want to come to this country, either to escape tyranny or just to seek a better life.

The point is that the reason America is great is because of the free market system we have in place. Is it perfect? No, but it is the best system that flawed humans have come up with, or will ever come up with. The Democrats believe that it is the government that can create prosperity. They want more power in their hands. Conservatives and the Republican party believe that this country does best when government gets out of the way and allows the American Dream to grow.
