It is painfully obvious that you are less than engaged during the confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan. Let's start with the most important question - What in the name of hell are you even doing on the Judiciary Committee? You aren't an attorney, you're barely even literate, and you're a foolish partisan hack as well!

Second, these hearings are important. You doodling pictures of Senator Jeff Sessions, a far more serious and worthwhile Senator than you could ever be, is offensive although I must admit the doodle is impressively accurate.

Third, people who cannot keep their eyes open during the day are frequently people who are suffering from sleep apnea, a condition which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. I'm speaking from first hand experience. I now sleep with a CPAP machine and get better rest and am more alert during the day.

I highly recommend that you consult a neurologist forthwith! I don't like you but I don't want to see Minnesota endure the spectacle of another Paul Wellstone-like funeral.

They want to know whether or not the people being polled support Arizona's new illegal immigration law. So far, this is the result:

1,582,664 votes

Bet they didn't expect this result!

One can only hope that this is the last time a U.S. Senator serves as long as the late Senator Robert Byrd has served the state of West Virginia - and serve it he did. There may be a 7-11 somewhere in the state that doesn't bear Senator Byrd's name, but that's about the extent of it. In some ways, Senator Byrd was an admirable man. He was an old-fashioned Democrat, not of the Barack Obama variety. He was also a living example of what is wrong and deceptive about his party, including in his resume such things as membership in the Ku Klux Klan. On the other hand, he grew up dirt poor in a state that is historically more impoverished than most, educated himself out of the hole into which he had been born and was an expert on the workings and rules of the Senate. And any man who carries around a pocket-sized copy of the U.S. Constitution, has some admiration from me.

The framers of our Constitution did not intend that the U.S. Senate or the U.S. House of Representatives should become a career option, but rather that service would be a part time thing for relatively short periods of time.

Having these people entrenched for decades can and frequently does lead these senators and congresscritters to believe that they are somehow "above" the citizens for employ them. It further leads them to vote themselves inordinate and ridiculous salary increases as well as exempting themselves from onerous legislation imposed upon the people for whom they work. Term limits are an idea whose time has come and these term limits should be imposed by a Constitutional Amendment that specifically states how many terms should be permitted in each house and limit the ability of these clowns to vote themselves huge pensions and special perks. This isn't some kind of half-assed monarchy. This is a Republic and the power of our legislators flows from the will of the governed, not the other way around!

Over the weekend, amidst the veritable orgy of Michael Jackson memories being peddled by the television gurus, one gem stood out which illuminated what a great gift this young man once possessed. I am referring to the wondrously fun film "The Wiz" in which Jackson starred with the horrendously miscast Diana Ross. His entire performance was effortless, buoyant and filled with a joy that I never saw again in his work. It was clear that he took enormous pleasure in stepping outside the box into which he had been put as a member of the Jackson Five and his dancing was easily up to a par with that of the professional dancers who comprised the chorus in this film. Subsequent work of Jackson's tended to be repetitive and lacklustre, again, my opinion. Every dance move was either derivative or a mirror of someone else's creativity. Even his singing voice in "The Wiz" was fuller bodied and more melodic than in subsequent performances.

What a damned shame that his miserable childhood and his despicable troll of a father sullied what might have been a shining and life affirming gift in this tormented and fragile young man.

Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl’s responded to the moronic Democrat Milwaukee County Board Supervisor/AZ boycott zealot Peggy West who stated flatly that Arizona did not share a border with Mexico by mailing this pinheaded twerp a MAP. Good for him. He has cojones which is more than I can say for MOST Republicans holding public office these days!

Look, I'm the most geographically challenged person I know (I actually didn't know that Mount Rushmore was in South Dakota until I was in my mid-30s. I had no real reason to care and so didn't bother, I guess!), but even I know that Arizona borders Mexico! And if I were going to run my mouth about a bill that clearly I hadn't even read (I HAVE read SB 1070 as a matter of fact - it isn't that long and it's interesting reading.), I think I'd make sure of my facts before opening my yap! That's all I'm saying.

But then to be a Democrat and an office holder requires little intelligence and a lot of unquestioning obedience to the stupid-party-line. Please do remember that these are the same idiots who put the Kenyan wetback in office!

And excellent reading. To those of you who are perhaps fallen away Catholics or considering conversion to Catholicism, there's an excellent book out there published by Catholic Answers of San Diego called "Home at Last". It's very readable and quite inspiring, chronicling as it does 11 stories of people who have found their way into the Catholic Church from positions of agnosticism, atheism, as well as various Protestant denominations.

If, like me, you struggle with defining and explaining your beliefs, this book is an excellent tool. And no, in interests of full disclosure, nobody is paying me anything to recommend this excellent book.

In addition, I am now reading "Sizzling Sixteen" by Janet Evanovich, part of her Stephanie Plum series set in Trenton, New Jersey (Evanovich was, to my knowledge, the first author to make the state of New Jersey cool!). This series of books (which really should be read starting with "One for the Money") is entertaining and funny as can be. In these times, laughter should be a necessary component of everyone's life, along with faith in God!

Earlier today I posted a quote from Senator Chris Dodd that was inaccurate. However, in my defense, it definitely sounded like something the Senator would say, he is THAT stupid.

That does not, however, excuse me from doing my homework. And I apologize for attributing to Senator Dodd words that were much more literate than any he has uttered and which sounded so like his stupidity as to be believable.

Let me commence this post by stating flat out that I think that Al Gore is a blithering idiot. That being said, I think the sexual assault charges against him are completely specious!

Just from reading the following, from The Portlander:

After interviewing the woman, the Police Bureau provided additional services per the victim advocate program. The case was not investigated any further because detectives concluded there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations.

In June 2010, the woman involved contacted Detectives and asked for a copy of her statement, which she was given. She then asked if she could edit her statement and was told she could provide detectives with additional clarifications that would be added to her original report. She also advised that she was going to take the case to the media.

The supposed assault took place in 2006! Folks that's over FOUR YEARS AGO! Never mind my inability to believe that former V.P. Gore has any kind of sex drive - inappropriate or not, there's something very hinky about this woman's charges! Methinks this female is seeking a big paycheck from someone whose wealth has markedly increased since 2006.

Anyway, that's what I think. What's your take on the matter?

UPDATE: "Crazed Sex Poodle" - seriously?!

UPDATE #2: Apparently this 54 year old woman has a pair of slacks with The Poodle's DNA on them and witnesses. Witnesses? Seriously, witnesses?!

Did you know the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not apply to babies of illegal aliens born here? A bill is in the works to end the birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens born in this country.

We are, as I have frequently opined, a generous and kindly people, all allegations by the leftwing idiots to the contrary aside! They're speaking out of their nether regions as per usual. We have helped nations all around the world in several centuries of our existence, even before we really could afford to do so. All the world accepted slavery at the time that we, sadly, tolerated it here. No it wasn't right, but that's in the PAST. We ended it well over 100 years ago. That's why it's called the PAST. So to those who are the descendants of slaves, quit thinking of yourselves as victims and start thinking of yourselves as Americans! Not hyphenated Americans but just plain Americans. You have just as much opportunity to work your butt off as the rest of us do. We all work really hard so that we can enjoy the blessings of this great land. It isn't for sale and it isn't for la migra by a people who are such inept managers that they couldn't hold it in the first damned place. You will not achieve by fecundity what you failed to achieve by merit!

If you want California - have at! I will not, however, cede rights to Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Florida.

Before - long before - any discussions of amnesty (reward for breaking our Federal laws) take place, let's reclaim our national borders and enforce them. We have that right as a sovereign nation. Anyone who claims to the contrary is just blowing stupidity out his ass!

"Athiests Don't Have No Songs" - Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Band in a gentle spoof of atheism. It's midweek, it's hot outside and we need to laugh. We especially need to laugh, given the current occupant of the White House!

First an interview surfaces wherein General McChrystal, President Obama's hand-picked "guy" in the field in Afghanistan pretty much disses the leadership or lack thereof of The Won! Then Senator Kyl flat out calls the President a liar when the Prez denies that he told the good Senator that he didn't intend to enforce the U.S./Mexican border! And now, a New Orleans federal judge has struck down the Obama administration's six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, saying the government rashly concluded that because one rig failed, the others are in immediate danger, too.

The White House promised an immediate appeal. The Interior Department had halted approval of any new permits for deepwater drilling and suspended drilling of 33 exploratory wells in the Gulf.

Who knew there was as judge out there with common sense. If those wells are shut down, the equipment and personnel will go elsewhere - likely to other nations less than friendly to us! In what is more or less our territorial waters - so nothing in terms of safety is being achieved.

Amateur hour continues apace!

Get a copy of the CD of "200 mph" by Bill Cosby. It's a very old piece of work but it is available through Amazon at a very reasonable price. I know because I just purchased two copies to give as Father's Day gifts.

If anyone out there aspires to a comedy career, this particular CD is a "must have" in my opinion. It is a clear and hilarious demonstration of how the brilliant Dr. Cosby seamlessly sustains and builds a comic piece of work that lasts 20 minutes.

In my view, Bill Cosby is easily the heir to Mark Twain in his skill and brilliance as a storyteller!

I'm a big fan!

The president of the United States is a stone liar and everyone knows it. So why should Rep. Barton be threatened by his own party (of wimps and cowards) for calling him out on it. Next thing you know, the absolutely trustworthy Senator Kyl will be chastised for reporting what was said by our president in the Oval Office at a meeting with him.

Given the historical veracity of these two people, my money's on Kyl - - and Barton (and Wilson before them who shouted out "You Lie" during the SOTU speech).

Granted, calling the liar-in-chief a dishonest person isn't the p.c. thing to do - but it's CANDID and it's protected speech under our Constitution, a document that the current president seems to deem irrelevant!

Once again the Senate and House Republicans have proved that they lack a spine or any kind of self-respect. After Texas Congressman Joe L. Barton firmly and accurately described the $20 Billion dollar fund that V.P. Joe Biden was instrumental in forcing on BP as a "shakedown" all the lily livered Republicans threatened Rep. Barton's committee assignments as punishment if he didn't apologize. For what? Telling the truth!?

John Boehner - I used to respect you. Not any more. And any other Republican congressman who forced this apology on Rep. Barton - a pox on all your houses as well!

Bunch of cowards is what you are and you all should be defeated and replaced by Congress critters with some stones! What is WRONG with you people?

Shame on all y'all!

ABC News is reporting that the U.S. Coast Guard has ordered stopped the oil sucking barges ordered by Gov. Bobby Jindal down Louisiana way!

The reason the Coast Guard did this? Because of reasons that Jindal (and I) found frustrating and reasonably stupid. The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges. WTF?!

Who the hell is in charge of the Federal effort? Wiley Coyote? This is pure and simple bullshit!

When is the White House going to stop playing POLITICS with this national disgrace? First they refuse to waive the Jones Act and allow experts from the Netherlands and Norway - who are experts in stopping these kinds of oil leaks - from helping (and that was really early on in this whole nightmarish situation) and now our own Coast Guard is stopping the Governor of Louisiana from saving his own state's beaches and wetlands.

It is about time the grown-ups took charge of this whole mess! Dr. Utopia is a brainless wimp with absolutely no clue.

Impeach the bastard and do it now. Joe Biden cannot possibly be worse and in fact, may be better!

UPDATE: The Boyz at HillBuzz have some strongly worded advice for Gov. Jindal which can be read here.

I certainly agree that BP was quite cavalier in its attention to safety concerns which, in the end, led to the explosion (that cost 11 lives, lest we overlook that salient detail) and the enormous oil spill that is still happening in the Gulf of Mexico and finding its way into both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

But to "keep it real" as the young keep imploring us to do - BP had to drill where it did because a bunch of environmental wackos and weinies would not let the drilling take place in safer waters! And our president's assertion that we don't have sufficient oil reserves is just a flat out leftwing LIE. We have enough oil reserves that we know of to last this nation THREE HUNDRED YEARS.

In addition, boycotting BP stations is an asinine waste of time. Before you do so, you should at a minimum ascertain whether or not this is a BP-owned station or a station run by some hapless franchisee whose entire life savings went into this business and where he makes little money from the selling of gasoline but depends on the minimart sales to make a living - and not a munificent one at that. And even if it is a BP-owned station, we need them to keep on making money so they can stay in business long enough to pay whatever renumeration is needed to return things to where they should be.0

In other words - instead of reacting emotionally and flapping about like a bunch of demented idiots, let's use our brains and try to behave rationally and thoughtfully! I know that's a foreign concept to a lot of Dems, but Republicans are supposed to be better than that, as are Libertarians and Independents.

And our hearts can bleed all they want for the poor birdies and sea life that is being harmed. The envirowackos were so concerned about the dangers of offshore drilling or drilling in ANWR that they forced us to drill in an area where capping the ruptured pipe is going to take longer and in the end wreak more havoc on our natural resources! How does that make any sense at all?

Happy father's day to all you men out there who have survived the last 30-40 years of unremitting male-bashing by the so-called feminists who think think that in order to be empowered, they need to belittle and denigrate all the men in their world and everyone else's worlds as well.

That is such trifling b.s. I cannot even begin to tell you how seriously stupid I think that kind of thing is. Men are no more flawed than are the women who make it a habit to diss them on a regular basis. Perhaps - in some cases - even less so.

Bottom line, we're all imperfect humans and we all need to lean on each other to make it through this life without serious injury. What's so hard to understand about that?

Well, I guess they're so programmed these left-wing feminists who think that in order to be taken seriously they need to eschew personal hygiene and grooming that they are incapable of thinking like reasonable people!

My own father was a flawed human being - as am I - but I loved him a great deal. And I learned a great deal from him. He taught me to love books and education and my mother with whom - like all daughters - I occasionally had a contentious relationship. All things being equal, Gilbert Joseph Miller was an exceptional human being who left me too soon. I loved you then and I love you now Dad!

I actually listened to Dr. Czero's address to the nation last night - all 10% of his entirely too generalized and self-serving rhetoric about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the 90% campaign statement about cap and tax!

Did he tell us what he is actually going to do? I mean, come on, he's had 53 days to figure it out! Nope, no specifics. Guess when you don't give specifics, you cannot expect to be criticized when your non-specific solutions fail miserably.

Since I have never actually ever listened to a speech by The Lightbringer, I was expecting soaring rhetoric and brilliant locution - and I received neither. It was just another pedestrian piece of babble trying to justify his inaction and inept handling of an environmental emergency coupled with justifications for his additional taxation scheme called cap and trade.

In other words - bullshit from the top. Has this nation ever had a more incompetent president? Nope - don't think so! I mean, shit, Jimmy Carter is a trained engineer - did Obama even reach out to him? The governor of Louisiana - Bobby Jindal - has had his fill of the non-solutions emanating from Washington and is taking matters into his own hands. He gave Obama a chance to prove his abilities and was rewarded with the usual shuck and jive bullshit.

Two more years seem like an eternity for this p.o.s. to be foisted on this country. He's an idiot. Problem is, his v.p. is an even bigger dunderhead!

And by the way - where is Obama's constitutional RIGHT to tell BP what to do with the fund they're setting up to help those who were financially damaged by this oil spill? Does he think he's GOD? We know better. In addition, BP is a BRITISH corporation over which he has no rights! What a dimwit.

How refreshing was it to hear Sarah Palin's firm, knowledgeable and no-nonsense response to Dr. Czero's babbling? Dear Lord, protect and preserve this magnificent woman and her family for the sake of my beloved nation! The godless Left fears her because she is truly a gift from God for our country.

Last night on O'Reilly a commercial was played sponsored by some pro-drug group funded by George Soros which featured Sting (not a U.S. citizen so why doesn't he STFU) objecting to our United States drug policies as threatening his "sovereignty over his own body" - which is patent bullshit on the face of it.

Statistics prove that 90% or more of child and domestic abuse is perpetrated by drug-addled abusers! That alone should say something about the need to get the illegal drug trade under control. And by the way - the statistics also aver that only 10% of alcohol-addled cretins are abusers. So don't do that moral equivalency crap, please!

What's the real reason that Mr. Soros (who may well be Satan's imp - in fact I'm sure of it) wants drugs readily and legally available in this country? My guess is that he wants us nice and stoned when he calls in his storm troopers to take us over. And it's becoming readily apparent to him that his current ploy in the form of that ignorant, incompetent Kenyan wetback is failing miserably!

I think it's time for all good little Buddhists to start chanting for Soros' happiness. It's the surest way to spike his guns for good.

The bought-and-paid-for media are pillorying Carly Fiorina for her comments vis-a-vis Barbara Boxer's hairdo. I think the fuss is overly hysterical and totally ridiculous. Barbara Boxer (call me Senator Boxer, not ma'am) has always run on her looks, not her substance, primarily because she has no substance. So criticizing her hairdo is fair game.

Now it has been done and we need to move on. If Barack Hussein Obama is an empty suit, Barbara Boxer is a crap-filled dress! She doesn't deserve re-election and should not BE re-elected!

Bottom line - she's a vapid, empty-headed bitch and worthless as tits on a bull!

And fugly to boot - look at those hands. She's a whole lot older than the botox would lead one to believe! And while it isn't politically correct to comment on her appearance, when that's been her whole persona during her entire political life - she has made it fair game! Besides, I'm not politically correct now or ever!

This is my idea of what a governor should be - fully committed to serving the people of his state - not the special interests and other political hucksters that almost-always flutter around politicians of his stature! And make no mistake, this governor has stature to spare!

Seeing how this marvelous man comports himself makes me realize that this is the kind of political LEADER I remember from my youth - a man who is sure of himself, unapologetic in his masculinity, intelligent and courageous. And it makes me pray that he doesn't display feet of clay.

No, Governor Christie may not be an ideologue's dream of a politician - he may be too pragmatic and blunt for many but the bottom line is, we must now and forevermore eschew our insistence on style over substance. The nation simply cannot afford any more of it!

So rock on Governor Christie! You make me think that living in New Jersey may be a good thing.

Within a week after the announcement of Al and Tipper Gore's separation, it has now been announced that Karenna Gore and her husband are likewise separated.

So do they get a group discount with a divorce lawyer?

What they mean is that in different venues, different values and stresses were in play. Anyone who thinks that this is some guarantee that the November elections will go a certain way, is reading faulty tea leaves!

The most important thing about the coming November election is that everyone get out there and actually VOTE!

Getting the entire slate of Senators who voted for a health care boondoggle they neither read nor understood is imperative. Getting rid of most of the witless buffoons who call themselves U.S. Congressmen is a grave necessity.

The question we all need to ask ourselves is this: How much do I love my country? Do I love her enough to propel my lazy arse out of bed and get me to the polls.

Not voting is not an option - I don't care what anyone says. We're in this mess because people were so busy "sending a message" to Republicans who weren't doing the ideologically pure thing, that we ended up with an incompetent Socialist sitting in the White House, kept there purely because his vice president is a big, endlessly prattling buffoon!

Tuesday, June 08, 2010


First, Herr Czero, our completely unesteemed president, is using language unbefitting the president of this country on a morning chat show and then we hear that the dementedly dangerous Ahmadinejad is threating to put a major hurt on both Israel and the U.S.! So tell me Mahmoud - how's your penis? Still itty bitty?

Does anyone remember the late, unlamented Saddam Hussein and his "mother of all battles" just before we kicked the ass of his Republican Guard, supposedly the most fearsome fighters in the Arab world. Forgive me if I have nothing but contempt for men who must belligerantly bellow their bellicose bullshit!

My boss - who loves to widen my horizons - brought me a CD by someone named Vittorio who is the "Next Josh Groban" and on that CD there is a duet with Nicole Scherzinger. The woman can SING!

So let me get this straight - she wins "Dancing with the Stars", has a successful pop career going, is drop dead gorgeous and she sings like an angel!

Gimme a break. Maybe the good Lord also gifted her with smelly feet? Something to keep her from being too doggone perfect, PLEASE!

Sunday, while at the shop getting my toes trimmed and my feet scraped (aka a pedicure), the shop had CNN tuned in and whilst watching some chunky broad (didn't get her name and didn't care) was interviewing Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas. Talk about a deeply illuminating interview! Not! Senator Lincoln kept blathering on about how Republicans are sending around disparaging flyers about her and spending lots of money to defeat her. Hey Senator Lincoln - that's what an election IS! Bottom line - no followup questions from the interviewer along the lines of - WHAT specifically is in the flyers that are so disparaging and are the charges true, close to true or utterly false? And if false, how are they false and can you prove it? Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy - sycophantic journalism from CNN.
Then the conversation held with Helen Thomas hit the airwaves via and we heard for certain what we've always known - this so called journalist is about as far away as one can be from unbiased in her approach! So sad that she had to resign.
It's in my mind to have an imaginary matchup in my head with my most admired journalist - the late, absolutely great, unequaled Dorothy Fuldheim and this despicable and hateful woman who has squated like a malevolent toad in the front row of the White House press room for far too long. And thank heavens THAT nonsense is finally at an end.
An unbiased, unfettered and completely free press is one of the bulwarks of our nation's freedoms. Dare I hope that in some miniscule fashion we are getting a tad closer to returning to those standards?
Naw - I didn't think so either!

I felt fairly "green" most of the day on Friday and Saturday and then Sunday even worse - couldn't get warm and was in enormous pain. Called dear friend Joyce and she came over and immediately called an ambulance - she was concerned I was having a heart attack! My color was a lovely shade of grey and I was in so much pain I couldn't stand upright!

To make a long story short I was suffering from diverticulitis and if you never have to get it, I'll be happy for you. Unpleasant is barely the word for it!

I spent some 6-7 hours in the emergency room and after a cat scan of my belly, we discovered the diagnosis. The e.r. doctor was delighted there was actually one patient there who wasn't drunk beyond belief! He wsas so nice - and he ended up calling me yesterday to make sure I was doing well! Cipro, pain pills, etc. and I'm on the mend! Think a person would get that kind of care with Obamacare? Somehow I doubt it!

The cats are thrilled. Auntie Linda - giver of treats and belly scritches was here most of the day on Monday and I'm doing better so I can dispense same my own self.

Man there are a lot of drunks and unhappy Hispanic children in emergency rooms on Sunday nights!

Thank goodness for Joyce - who stayed at my side until Linda could get there - and Linda who never left my side once she got to the hospital! I am blessed in my friends!
