McCain Wins....

John McCain, using his infamous skill's as a pilot, guided his election campaign to a "victory" in the Florida winner take all primary.

Yeah, I was gonna write some witty repartee about the old sod, but then I found a link to this article by Matt Welch over at REASON magazine online. It's from April of 2007. Nevertheless, you will learn more about McCain and his beliefs than you ever wanted to know.

McCain once wrote that Teddy Roosevelt “invented the modern presidency by liberally interpreting the constitutional authority of the office to redress the imbalance of power between the executive and legislative branches that had tilted decisively toward Congress.” This is the kind of president John McCain is aching to be.

It's a worthy read. Go. Now.
Where's Bill?

Bill Clinton. You remember him. It was just a few days ago he was all over the press "campaigning" for HRH Hillary. Now, he's disappeared. Should we be putting his face on milk cartons yet?
Game On!!

Martini's...they're not just for dinner anymore! Learn how to make your own here.
Uh, Good Luck With That!

Yeah, that quote from my olde pal SpongeBob was just ringing in my brain as I read the article about Carnival down in Brazil.

As Brazilians get ready for their annual Carnival celebrations, the government is urging them to practice safe sex and avoid drinking too much.
"Everybody has the right to have fun and enjoy themselves but it is important to remember that the next week we have to work and look after our families," President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said on Monday.

I think it was Jimmy Buffet that once said, ya can't stop the music. Thus, with the proclamations of el Presidente Lula ruling out sex and drugs we are left solely with the third element of that party mantra triumvirate Rock & Roll.

Like I said...Good luck with that!....

Yup. The New York chapter of the National Organization of Women (NOW) or the NAGS, as Uncle Rush calls them, have reacted to Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Obamalama.

Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard.

“This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation - to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who ‘know what’s best for us.’”

A woman's organization that considered Ted their friend and now they are betrayed.....

Seal Team Captures Submarine....
I'll Take the Toyota.....

Victor Davis Hanson has a great post up on the selling of HRH Hillary by her ner do well husband Billary. In five concise points reviewing the virtues of HRH Hillary that has become a theme in the the Ex Prez's romp through South Carolina VDH provides insight into the eternal question of...Just what is it ole Bill is selling?

It would be cruel, but understandable to ask amid these long encomia on Hillary’s character, her talent, and her morality—prefaced by Bill’s commentary that he almost alone realized her singular gifts, why in the world, then, did he spend over thirty years trying to escape her in almost every way imaginable? Why if she walked on water, did he find company, carnality, conversation with Paula Jones or Gennifer Flowers, or feel the need to talk trash and more with Monica? In other words, he is asking the voter to take on a partnership, a political marriage if you will, that he, mutatis mutandis, never would or has. It reminds me of the last time I bought a Chevy S-10. The local Selma salesman went on at great length about its reliability, its power, and economy, its great price, and then I asked him whose small, like-sized Toyota Tacoma was parked nearby and was it for sale? No need to tell you to whom it belonged.

Me? I likes the Toyota.

Kwame Kilpatrick, the hip-hop mayor, (his term) of the great city of Detroit has been caught in a bit of a lie. Seems while testifying at a trial this past year his honor denied having an affair, uh em, "relationship" with his chief of staff. (no pun intended). Denied it several times while under oath. So did the Chief of Staff. Case is over, city lost and is paying 9 million. No worries eh?

Well, it seems they did have a relationship. Pretty steamy one by the text messages that have been released in the Detroit Free Press.

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his chief of staff lied about their relationship last summer at a police whistle-blower trial that has cost the cash-strapped city more than $9 million, according to records obtained by the Free Press.

The false testimony potentially exposes them to felony perjury charges, legal experts say.

Lied under oath, twice, perjury, gosh, ya think so? If this was you or I we would be hipp-hopping off to the local jail. But the Mayor? I'm guessing the District Attorney gives it a pass. Just a feeling..........What say you?

UPDATE: This is a Great article to play "name the party" with. Long article, no mention of Kwame's party affiliation....imagine that...he's DEMOCRAT!

David Beckham is already the world's richest footballer. He may also be its biggest environmental threat.

According to Soccer America daily, with reference to data provided by the British environmental group Carbon Trust, the Los Angeles Galaxy superstar is responsible for 163 tons of carbon dioxide yearly — compare that to the normal 9.4 tons the average Englishman produces.

Beckham's Carbon Footprint — a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide — may be the largest in human history.

Well, Al needed a challenge for the upcoming year. Have at it old sport.

Good Googlymooglies...the Politically Correct crowd strikes again. A CD based upon the story of the "Three Little Pigs" has been banned in Britain! Why? Seems it may be offensive to Muslims and, get this, builders.

A story based on The Three Little Pigs has been rejected by a Government-backed awards event because it might offend Muslims... and builders.
The digital book, retelling the classic children's tale, was criticised by judges who said "the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

Gosh, imagine if you were a builder who happened to be Muslim, twice offended...oh, the humanity. Yet, I am struck by the lack of concern for guys like moi, you know, the Male Chauvinist Pig. Should I be offended that they are offended?

Pretzel logic, brought to you by the PC crowd.

Hubba Hubba!

Conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh's got a new sweetheart - and she's nearly half his age. Limbaugh, who turned 57 Jan. 12, told Page Two he's been dating West Palm Beach resident Kathryn Rogers for the past six months.

All I can add is ........Dude!


I stole it from Denny!

Well here's an article that pretty much sums up the Candidate from Arrrrghh!

The MSM's love McCain because when he lies to their face he doesn't even pretend to be doing otherwise. According to the pretzel logic of a certain kind of journalism, that counts as candor.

All this would be merely amusing if McCain were not a genuinely tragic figure. The young man who showed such exemplary courage in the face of his North Vietnamese tormenters has become an old man whose courage abandoned him when subjected to the more subtle tortures of worldly ambition.

Man, they study everything nowadays. Here is an article about a study on ....Clowns. No, not politicians, Clowns! Seems those red nosed nabobs of comedy are, well, unloved. The poll had some sobering information...

A poll by researchers looking at what decor to put in hospital children's wards found that youngsters do not like clowns on the walls and even older ones think they are scary.

"We found that clowns are universally disliked by children. Some found them quite frightening and unknowable," said Penny Curtis, senior researcher at the University of Sheffield which questioned 250 children aged between four and 16.

on the campaign trail ....

We have all heard ad nauseum about the religious beliefs of Mitt Romney, "He's a MORMON!" and the fact that Huckabee is a minister. On the Democrat side we know that Hillary goes to church whenever the cameras are rolling on Sunday morning and Obama......well what about Obama? You know the guy that refuses to put his hand on his heart for the American flag. What about his "beliefs"?

Steve Sailor has been asking the same question. You might find the answer, shall we say, illuminating. Here's a clip...

Obama has made a big deal over the years out of his being a churchgoer rather than the ultra-educated agnostic he looks like -- it's crucial to his viability as a candidate for President. But that naturally raises questions about what kind of church he picked out for himself 21 years ago.
After all, an enormous amount of talk has been devoted to, say, Mitt Romney and his church, even though Romney was born into being a Mormon. In contrast, Obama knew dozens of Chicago pastors through his ethnic organizing job, but, when he figured out that he had to belong to a church to have an effective political future on the South Side, he shopped around and chose Rev. Wright's church.

It's not exactly a secret that Obama's Rev. Wright is a radical leftist black racialist. Wright calls his stance "black liberation theology" and relates it to Nicaraguan Marxist liberation theology.

Obama belongs to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Interesting website, to say the least. So what is this Black Liberation Theology? Perusing various articles we learn that in Morth America it is prmarily based upon the writings of James Cone, a Protestant minister who grew up in Arkansas. In his book Black Theology and Black Power Cone writes,

“A moral or theological appeal based on a white definition of morality or theology will serve as a detriment to our attainment of black freedom. The only option we blacks have is to fight in every way possible, so that we can create a definition of freedom based on our own history and culture. We must not expect white people to give us freedom. Freedom is not a gift, but a responsibility, and thus must be taken against the will of those who hold us in bondage.”

Quite a proposition in this day and age.

The impact of this little bit of research left me curious about this heretofore unknown to me belief system. A system that has yet to be reported on by the Mainstream Media. Thus, on to the internet! I was surprised to find a wealth of writings by those smarter than your average Rumbear. H. Wayne House has a long article on the subject entitled An Investigation of Black Liberation Theology. He writes,

Black liberation theology shares much in common with liberation theology in general but also has its own uniqueness. As a theology of liberation, it is concerned with the political and economic aspects of salvation rather than salvation in spiritual terms. Moreover, God is viewed as being primarily for the poor over against the rich in society. However, black theologians seek to interpret liberation from a black American or black African perspective (though even blacks in the United States and Africa sense differences in their emphases)12 Black theology, unlike Latin American liberation thought, is concerned with racism and a historical identity.

So we have a church tailoring it's views to a particular race. Views that seek to distinguish based upon that race. Most interesting. Yet, in a day when we have the Congressional Black Caucus, Black Entertainment Network, United Negro College Fund etc, etc, should we be surprised to learn of a religion tailored thereto? Should racism be a concern? Not really, unless of course you could insert the word "white" in any of the above and have that be a cause for concern. Since that would not be a problem [;-)] then we have nothing to worry about with Obama...right?


UPDATE: The MSM chimes in.


Got it from Denny.

What day is it?!

Tuesday, January 15, 2008


Yup, he's back. Like a bad smell that will not go away. That sometime Republican, more often than not wingnut, John Mc Cain is enjoying a brief stint as the media darling. Michigan. That financially bankrupt example of socialist policy state in the Mid West is the latest battleground for the old middle of the road McCainiacs.

Proudly wearing his RINO label McCain is appealing to those downtrodden voters who have been supporting the Democrats while watching their state deteriorate. They are looking for change alright and this RINO fits the bill.

"He's a centrist in my view," said Ted Fryxell, 37, a Democratic-leaning independent who plans to vote for McCain. "He's a Republican choice we can live with."

That's because he's not a Republican, Ted. Arrrrggh!!!

Just Found!

Old picture of da Rumbear during some summertime fun!
Pilot Error.

These findings were troubling.....

A Navy Blue Angels pilot killed in a crash in a residential area last year apparently had become disoriented after failing to properly tense his abdominal muscles to counter the gravitational forces of a high-speed turn, The Associated Press has learned.

then I read on and learned this.....

The Pensacola-based Blue Angels fly without the G-suits that most fighter pilots wear to avoid blacking out during such maneuvers. The suits inflate and deflate air bladders around the lower body to force blood to the brain and heart.
However, the air bladders can cause a pilot to bump the control stick, so the Blue Angels instead learn to manage the forces by tensing their abdominal and leg muscles.

So it's "Pilot Error" to not wear the equipment that will allow for the task to be completed....uh, shall we say, safely? Pilot error is a catch all phrase that the powers that be look to and lean on when they need a fast and easy answer. Maybe they should take another look at those G-Suits, Some modification or improvement might be in order. However, that would require some accountability and after all the cause of the incident was "Pilot Error".

Tragic loss. Investigation complete. Case closed?

Like I said in my previous post...politics ain't beanbag...she will do or say anything to win!
Amen to That!

The weekly conservative magazine, Human Events has endorsed Fred Thompson. In a press release that summarizes the current political miasma they succinctly lay out the rationale.

We begin by recalling the profound words of Ronald Reagan at the Conservative Political Action Conference Feb. 15, 1975: “A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency or simply to swell its numbers.” We believed that then, and we believe it now. The issue for us -- and for the conservative community -- boils down to which of the candidates is most representative of the fundamental conservative principles we believe in. The answer is Fred Thompson.

Fred. Enuff said.
Seems Like a Good Question to Me....

I Don't Know Where I'm Gonna Go....

...When De Volcano Blows!

Lave is on the move on the Big Island. The flow is threatening what is left of the the Royal Gardens subdivision. That is the subdivision that was literally wiped out when the flows moved thru in 1983.

The Royal Gardens subdivision originally had 1,827 lots, but much of that property has already been covered. The volcano destroyed more than 60 homes in Royal Gardens since 1983.

Cool stuff.....

Go Patriots....

Caught flat out cheating in game three of the season the New England Patriots, paid the fines that were levied and moved on. “Getting caught was an eye opener. We knew right then that we would have to improve our tactics.” said one wag. Indeed, they did not want to get caught again, so they improved. Squelching any further accusations of lying, cheating or filming things they shouldn’t, the Patriots have, not surprisingly, gone un-defeated. They improved their post game press conferences. Players and coaches refuse to answer any questions posed at them by the press that involve the words lying, cheating, thieves whores or reprobates. The NFL continues to downplay the fact that at least the first three games of the season are more than a little shall we say, “tainted”. When questioned recently one fellow simply replied, How about the new referee uniforms?

With all this behind them, they will without a doubt go down in sports history as one of the great teams in sports. Right up their with the efforts of the 1919 Chicago White Sox, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire, Rosie Ruiz, Ben Johnson, & Tanya Harding. Sports icons all.

Oh great, the Chargers get to play them next!

Politics Ain't Beanbag

Well, that's what my olde Political Science professor Sheldon Appleton used to hammer in to us. Politics is a blood sport and nobody plays it better than the Clinton machine. Virtually every poll coming out prior to the New Hampshire primary had Obamalama up by double digits. Hillary was on TV sobbing about being a loser and Bill was railing against those inconsiderate voters that "owed him".

Enter the machine.

Miracle of miracles...Hillary wins! Yup, she wins in a state where virtually anyone can vote....and apparently did. They ran out of ballots on the Democrat side. Never happened before. Gosh.
Hmmmmmm.....says me.

And HRH Hillary dried her eyes and thanked those who supported her....for now. I'm thinking that Obamalama now understands that politics ain't beanbag and those polls are not worth the dirt to bury them when the Clinton's are in the game.
Stay tuned folks, this is gonna get real interesting.

Tuesday, January 08, 2008


Boy, I takes a week off and what the hey?!!! HRH Hillary finishes third in the Hawkeye Cockeyes and is spiraling downaward. John Edwards, aka "Silky Pony" grabs a second and is nowhere to be found and Barack Hussein Obamalamadingdong is, to quote Chris Hitchens, "...the current beneficiary of a tsunami of drool."

Yup, crazy stuff. HRH Hillary is pushing for change and she is getting it. Woman voters are abandoning her for ....Obamalamadingdong. Another lesson in be careful what ye asked for. Maybe that's why she is crying?!


On the Republican side we have a Huckaboom going on! I heart Huckabees! Lord, give me a break....he won in Iowa people....IOWA! Dukakis won there, Kerry won there..Howard Dean, YEEEARGHH!....ring a bell...get my drift? Next we're on to New Hampshire. McCain, everbody's favorite maverick (i.e. NUT) is surging! Oh my, why?

Maybe my neighbor is right...the country is a mound and all the nuts roll to the coasts. But, I digress, New Hampshire, the one state that can look at California and say our nuts are better than your nuts! Thus, we await the latest news from....are you ready...Dixville Notch, NH, population 75 peoples, to tell us our fate in the Presidential Election. Is this a great country or what?!! 75 people who have dedicated their lives to living on the edge of the middle of nowhere and we wait for their opinion. Lord love a duck.

The late night shows are having a field day, at least they would be. See these 4 writers went on strike and being good liberals the entire staff refused to cross their picket lines. Thus, no show for Jay and Conan and Dave. Until several paychecks had been missed by the non strikers and then the "fairness" of so few causing harm to so many began to be debated. You guessed it...Jay's back, Dave's back and the rest are following suit. So much for solidarity on the socialist front. Yet, you and I will get our humor.

Thus, I will leave you with this from the campaign of the best lines of the day.....Mickey Kaus over at Slate "But why would Edwards drop out? What else does he have to do?"

Back to you Jay....or Dave...or............

UPDATE: Just in ..... Obama and McCain cleanup in Dixville! Yup, 7 out of 10 registered Dems voted for Obamalamdingdong and McCain took 4 out of 7 Republicans votes! YEEEARGHHH!!!
