The olde Commodore 64 has given up the ghost and a sleek new model has been secured. Sheesh, 7 years and the damn computer is kerput.
An HP 6247with dual carbs, high speed cam, air brakes, 8 track player, glass panel, tundra tires, auto pilot, STOL package and a bunch of other stuff I do not understand. I just hope my Pong game still works.
Guest host Walter E. Williams described Limbaugh's pains as similar to the feeling of a "heart attack coming on." But Williams said doctors haven't confirmed whether the 58-year-old had a heart attack, and more exams were planned Thursday. "Rush continues to rest very comfortably in a hospital in Honolulu this afternoon—actually it's morning out there," Williams said. "He had a comfortable night and he's getting good medical attention."
Thoughts and prayers to you Big Guy. Get well and back at it soon.
"As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low-key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of Sept. 11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.
“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core Al Qaeda-trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency — social transformation — the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war."
Man, I hate that saying. (snort) However, it has its place and right now, it's here. Seems I am not the only one questioning why president Zero is still in Hawaii. Of course, cynical olde Rumbear that I am, I questioned why he need a vacation to begin with. I mean, when has he worked? But, I digress. Ms. Malkin, you have the floor.
Obama is not scheduled to return to Washington until Sunday. That’s four more full days of reinforcing his image as detached, aloof, and too damned tired to tackle the jihadi epidemic with the once-hyped energy and passion of a 48-year-old Super-Agent of Hope and Change.
Team Obama’s stage managers and image gurus are all about symbolism. Wouldn’t the president send a more credible message to jihadi plotters around the world (and to Americans) by cutting his holiday break short and getting back to work in the White House, rather than by phoning it in for the next four days?
CNN quotes another anonymous U.S. intelligence official who says that the CIA prepared a report on Mutallab in the wake of the November meeting with his father in Nigeria, which included Mutallab's name, passport number and possible connection to extremists, but that the report was not circulated outside the agency:
Hey did you hear about the iconic African-American guy who plays golf, and whose relationship with the public is in a free-fall lately?
No, as a matter of fact I'm not talking about Tiger Woods.
You know, I've really been trying not to write an article every other week about all the things I don't like about Barack Obama.
But the little prick is making it very hard.
Like any good progressive, I've gone from admiration to hope to disappointment to anger when it comes to this president. Now I'm fast getting to rage.
How much rage? I find myself thinking that the thing I want most from the 2010 elections is for his party to get absolutely clobbered, even if that means a repeat of 1994. And that what I most want from 2012 is for him to be utterly humiliated, even if that means President Palin at the helm. That much rage.
Did this clown really say on national television that "I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of you know, fat cat bankers on Wall Street"?!?!
Really, Barack? So, like, my question is: Then why the hell did you help out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street?!?! Why the hell did you surround yourself with nothing but Robert Rubin proteges in all the key economic positions in your government? Why did you allow them to open a Washington branch of Goldman Sachs in the West Wing? Why have your policies been tailored to helping Wall Street bankers, rather than the other 300 million of us, who just happen to be suffering badly right now?
Are you freakin' kidding me??? What's up with the passive president routine, anyhow, Fool? You hold the most powerful position in the world. Or maybe Rahm forgot to mention that to you. Or maybe the fat cat bankers don't actually let do that whole decision-making thing often enough that it would actually matter...
But, really, are you going to spend the next three interminable years perfecting your whiney victim persona? I don't really think I could bear that. Hearing you complain about how rough it all is, when you have vastly more power than any of us to fix it? Please. Not that.
Are you going to tell us that "I did not run for office to be shovel-feeding the military-industrial complex"? But what they're just so darned pushy?
"...I did not run for office to continue George Bush's valiant effort at shredding the Bill of Rights. It's just that those government-limiting rules are so darned pesky."
"...I did not run for office to dump a ton of taxpayer money into the coffers of health insurance companies. It's just that they asked so nicely."
"...I did not run for office to block equality for gay Americans. I just never got around to doing anything about it."
"...I did not run for office to turn Afghanistan into Vietnam. I just didn't want to say no to all the nice generals asking for more troops."
Meter maids eat their young. Democrats feast on...well, this year Democrats.
I would be remiss if I did not include.

Terrorism lives. The religion of peace strikes out on the birthday of the Prince of Peace. Imagine that, in the age of Obama. Hasn't this clown heard the apologies, seen the bows, cashed his stimulus? What gives?
Wings are struggling with a lineup beset by injuries.
Meanwhile the bring Herm to Hockytown bandwagon continues to grow. Yup, the 19 are bringing a kid from Brazil, Guilherme, who has never seen a Wing game to Hockeytown on March 29. Head on over to A2Y for the details. Donate a little something - something as any leftovers are going to Childrens hospital. Good Stuff.
Once president Zero, Our Hero realizes there is nothing left to destroy on the mainland this year he is jetting off to Hawaii. Now along with his entourage of hanger ons and sycophants, zero brings with him some real impact on the local economy.
As all you pilot guys know wherever the President is a Restricted Zone is establish. There is one over the White House. Others pop up as the President moves to a different locale. Traffic at LAX gets tied up when Zero comes to town. Remember Nixon and the Western White House and who can forget BJ Billy Clinton and his haircut? But hey, who am I to question protocol it works both ways.
Unless you are in Hawaii. See, the island is only so big. Thus,chaos.
HONOLULU -- President Barack Obama is expected to be in the islands for the holidays. The nearly two-week-long vacation may prove costly to some island businesses.
For many local flight schools and air tour operators it has been a difficult economic year. Now, their companies will encounter even more financial turbulence with the president's visit.
Mark Jones prepares planes to take off at George's Aviation. The business heavily relies on flight training for a big part of its income. Those training flights will be largely grounded as part of the safety measures in place during Obama's stay in Windward Oahu as temporary flight restrictions, or TFRs, will be in place."
Within a 10-mile radius around Kaneohe Bay, only airlines, air am will be able to fly. That excludes the area around Honolulu Airport. There is another restricted area between 10 to 30 miles from Kaneohe Bay," Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said."
Flight training is not approved of 30 miles of the president. So, effectively that will shut down the flight schools from training," Jones said.
Some helicopter tours and charter flights may be allowed to fly. However, Pat Magie's seaplane tours will be sunk by the restrictions.
"We can't fly tourists. We can't train. We've got an enforced two-week vacation without pay," Magie said.
Not to mention the traffic. One road into K-Bay. Saving the economy, creating jobs. Hopey/Changey....how's that working for ya?
It's pretty lonely on the HellthScare fight. Where are our leaders?!! It is imperative that the Republicans in the Senate force a reading of the bill. One, I do not believe they have it written in final form as yet. Time to flush it out. Two, the American people need to know what is in this travesty. Read. It. Out. Loud.
Dick Morrishits a home run today channeling Winston Churchill.
If they beat us in the Senate, we will fight them in conference. If they beat us in conference, we will fight them in the House. If they beat us in the House over healthcare, we will fight them over cap and trade. We will fight them over immigration and amnesty. We will fight them over the deficit. We will fight them over the debt. And we will fight them in 2010. We will fight them in the House. We will fight them for Senate seats in Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, and Arkansas. We will fight them in Colorado and North Dakota and California and Washington State. We will fight them in Illinois and in New Jersey. We will never, never, never, never give up! Our country is at stake!
Is anybody home
I'm here all alone
Did he leave the building
Or can he come to the phone
I'm here all alone
Why I don't like them. They will say whatever they need toso as to be appealing at the moment. Don't confuse them with facts, their minds are made up.
Today's prime example, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Governator panders left and right. Guess where he is on the issues.... His state is broke yet Obamacare will cost it billions. ??? Cap N Trade will cost his state billions more????.....you get the picture.
Not every Republican is a critic of President Obama. At least one thinks the president is doing a fine job – at least when it comes to the effort involved in being the country’s chief executive. Asked to give Obama a grade as the end of the president’s first year in office approaches, Arnold Schwarzenegger, California’s Republican governor, gave Obama high marks.
“When it comes to effort, [Obama] should get a straight A,” Schwarzenegger told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King in an interview that aired Sunday on State of the Union.
An "A", seriously. As Mike Huckabee said in an interview on Hannity, "This is what happens when you let students grade themselves."
Headed out to Yuma over Thanksgiving to break bread with the in laws. Perfect time to visit my favorite outfitters, Sprague's Sportsto check out the local offerings. Picked up some additions for the Ruger and the salesman said "Ya gotta enter the contest...fill this out." So I did.
Got an e-mail recently form the manager and ......I won! Yeah me!! A Ruger Charger pistol. Cool little toy for the range.
Here's the rub. It'sillegal in this state. It is considered an assault wepon due the the placement of the magazine. So, now I have a "store credit" in Yuma.
While living on the impoverished south end of Sausalito for a decade or so I used to see a lighted sign every year around Christmas. Walking home from the ferry landing to my tiny home I would marvel at a white lighted capital "L" surrounded by a circle and slash of red lights, as in the international symbol for "No".
The "L" looking familiar, left me for years wondering what this neighbor had against the Lottery. Who knew?
Then one evening while travelling home from the latest suare at SYC, Mrs Rumbear commented on how clever the lighted L was. Being an erudite bear about town I responded, "Huh?" She glanced at me and said "Noel", get it? Well, I did. Right at that moment.
Victor Davis Hanson is interviewed over at Frontpage Magazine. He offers what sounds like some sage advice for fair Sarah.
FP: What advice would you give to Palin? Hanson: After her book tour ends and she has earned some money, I wish she would hunker down somewhere to write, recharge and contemplate things. A month at Hillsdale College, for example, where, in friendly and supportive surroundings, she could debate, talk to faculty, read and write would be wonderful, or in fact a month almost anywhere she could review issues, have her views tested and debated, and do some in depth reading and discussion would be great.
Remember the Tedd Petrunas story. (here) A bunch of "Muslim" types board a plane refuse to sit down, refuse to cut off cell fone conversation as the plane is ready to taxi, flight crew terrified, heros alerted. Remember?
It happened again.
This time in Denver. Once again, Debbie Schlussell has teh story. Where is the MSM? Why do we hear little if nothing about these incidents? Why are the good americans on teh flight protrayed as nervous nellies and dismissed? I don't know either. Problem is on this flight was ex Denver Broncos coach, Mike Shanahan. He may be a lot of things, but whack job he is not.
A spokesperson for the FBI, Kathy Wright, confirmed to 9NEWS that federal investigators were originally called to the scene after receiving a call on a “possible suspicious incident.” Wright said eventually “we determined that it was not an FBI matter.”
Passengers say a bomb-sniffing dog was brought onto the plane and passengers in the first-class cabin we’re asked to go back to coach for a brief amount of time according to passengers on the plane.
John Sloan of Oxnard, California, was on board the flight on Wednesday. “I have never seen flight attendants so scared in my life. Everything turned out OK, but it was not a very good feeling. It would have been nice to have been updated though this process,” he told 9NEWS by phone.
Sloan says seven men were escorted off of the plane. Two of them were sitting in coach. The other five were sitting in first-class, he says. All were re-booked onto another flight according to United. Sloan says the men were attempting to change seats with other passengers. Another passenger, who doesn’t want his name used, says the men were also trying to move luggage while the plane was getting ready to push back.
Passengers tell 9NEWS all of the men looked to be “Middle Eastern,” but United will not confirm the identity of the seven men.
Nothing criminal was found, and the flight was allowed to continue on to California. Passengers also tell 9NEWS that former head coach of the Denver Broncos, Mike Shanahan, was seated in first class while this was all going on. Shanahan could not be reached for comment, and a spokesperson for the former coach simply told 9NEWS that he was “out of town.”
Checks in on the Hopenhagen summit. Things are just what they seem.
Deniers will be disparaged, data will be fudged and theories will be advanced that are, if possible, even more wing-nuttier than some of the claptrap currently out there. If heretofore depictions of Manhattan under water in the year 2057 were shown to sixth-graders, they're going to have to drop it down to preschoolers in deference to the Gullibility Expansion Joint. I say we offer them a lifeline right now. Come back little Sheba. Come to Papa. You went a little nuts. We understand. Of course, now that the fever dream has broken, you, too, realize that the ups and downs of temperature are what we call "the weather."
Read the whole thinghere. Hopey/Changey...how's that working for ya??
Rumbear, Rumbear, Rumbear so what do you think of the speech the president Zero gave over in Hopenhagen?? Pretty good eh? Sounds like he's coming around.
Ole Zero is a player. You are being played. Let me ask, When has he meant anything in any speech he has given? When? Go ahead, I'll wait.
What Zero knows is how to play to the cheap seats. By saying what he did Conservatives have to agree it all sounded good. Sarah Palin, Charles Krauthammer, Newt Gingrich, Uncle Rush have all said it was good speech. He set the right tone. Harrumph, harrumph.....
My take...he did not mean a word of it. "Boob bait for the bubbas" are Danial Patrick Moynihan the words used to say when confronted with such pusillanimous musings.

Dedicate an orgasm to Peace. Who?
All men and women - you and everyone you know. Why?
To effect positive change in the energy field of the earth through conscious dedication of orgasmic energy to the vibration of Peace. Our minds and our biology influence Matter and Quantum Energy fields, so by concentrating our thoughts before, during, and after orgasm on peace and loving-kindness, the synergy of high orgasmic physical energy combined with the power of positive visualization could help reduce global levels of violence, hatred and fear. Orgasm is the largest possible instantaneous surge of human biological and spiritual energies. It is a biological gift! What better way to achieve your resolution for Peace?
A California lawmaker is abandoning his effort to honor golf star Tiger Woods with the Congressional Gold Medal.
In a statement given to The Hill's ITK, Rep. Joe Baca (D-Calif.) said, “In light of the recent developments surrounding Tiger Woods and his family, I will not pursue legislation awarding him the Congressional Gold Medal this session."
Notice the ending..."this session". Because, in the future the medal just might be appropriate for the serial philanderer? Un-Employment skyrocketing, Cap & Trade, HellthScare, soaring deficits.....maybe you should focus on something else Mr. Baca.
